Editor The News:
On  Uoard, Aug. 6th.���Our  party  has
been  named  R.  Grant & Co.,  and   I've
been elected captain.    The party  is composed of R. Ennis, D. Emii.-., N. McFad-
)en, H. iVliller, J.,Grieve,   K. Sharp, and
mvself.     We    shipped   on    Wednesday
Aug.2d," at 6:30  p.m.    Had a fine   trip;
- called at  different canneries on  the way,
meeting   several   I'-knew.    At   Skeena
River, I saw'John Carthew,   he was looking-well.    At  Fort Simpson I saw   Mrs.
Wilescroft.    We hoisted the   Union Jack
as   we  entered   American   waters   near
Alaska.     At May Island the boat had to
be ''cleared."    The officers came  along
with us as far as Dyea; which is ?s far as
we  can  go  by  steamer.     The custom's
officer, tell Mr. Clinton; is as fine a fellow
as 1 ever met.    tie treated us like gentlemen, and he is nothing  short of a gentleman himself.    He might  have given  us
lots of trouble with our .stuff, but instead
he tried every way  to  make it  pleasant
for us.    There  weie  with us  about  100
passengers and   100 horses, all bound for
the Yukon.  The first night out, one horse
broke his leg.aid had to be thrown overboard.    Our horses came out fine._
Aug.7th.���Last night had to anchor at
Wrangell's, Rapids; fog too ' thick 10 go
through;- had fine sailing all day.- We
;ire now runniny through lots. of. small

saw: High mountains on both'sides and
large glaciers coming down out of the
mountains into th<* sea. Expect to be in
Dye.1 to-morrow evening.
Aug.Sth.���Larded at Dvea: got our
horses out in good sh ipe; everybody weli
and mi good spirits. This is a very rough
place. Two men were drowned litre���'
one to-day and one two days ago. One
of the men was from Seattle, and one���
Torn Wall of Nanaimo. The river is
rough and Tom was walking over with
his pack on his back, and fell in. Then
the party went to work and built a
It is the most terrible  rush I ever saw
any    where- -1,000   men   and  as    many
animals,   everyone    in   tents,   covering
about   a mile   square.    The   rush   is   so
great yon can get any price you  ask   for
horses.     I was offered   $250.00 for one of
our   mules or  $500.00   for   the lot,   but
would not sell them.    There is a team of
horses  and a truck wagon   here  making
$300.00 a day.    I only  wish I  had taken
a good team with me; it would have been
as good  a  thing as   I   wan't.    The  man
with the truck  wagon   charged $10.00 to
take the body of the drowned  man back
a  mile, although   he   was   going   there
empty.    This  with  other  things   stirred
up the  miners; so they  called a meeting .
and  served  notice on the  owner of the
truck team, giving him 24  hours, to make
himself scarce.    Lew Casey   is with   us;

Huntington, W. V. Aug. 20th. ���1.700
coal miners joined the strikers to-day.
Cleveland, Ohio, Aug. 20th.���The
decision reached here by the operators
of Pittsburg district at their conference
here last night, to open the mines regardless of consequences, will probably cause
sericus trouble. According to the local
coal men, the intention of the Pittsburgh
operators is to engage Pinkerton men
and   protect  the. non-union, men.    This
action will probably precipitate a terrible
calamity. Opeiators admit that blood
will flow.
1   They Were Lucky.
Some of the Cotjuililam crew descreted
at Dyea and went packing at 30 cents a
pound. On the day of their arrival five
Oregonians arrived at Skagway with
$45,000 in dust betwe'en them. They
went in last spring. -The first day they
struck pay dirt on the Klondike river,
getting $8,000. The trail from Skngway
across the mountains is very bad and
dangerous. Many horses have been
drowned. The government has 4 men
working on the Lake trail but the White
pass trail is considered better. It's blazed all the way. The Mounted Police
went through Skagway.
Ships Spoken or Sighted.
The steamer Eliza Anderson was spoken at Fort Simpson; the tug Pioneer,
with barges in tow bound for Dyea, was
also spoken. The Rosalie, too, was spoken, Capilano and Elder-were sighted.

Vancouver,   Aug.   2rst.���The   steamer
Coquitlam arrivei  from Dyea this morning.    The captain stated that no one was
anxious to come   back with   him.    There
were 3000 people at Skagway and 600 at
Dyea.    The  day   they   arrived   was  an
eventful one.    The body of a white man
was   swinging  to a tree.   He   had   been

The Canadian Pacific earnings for the  fourth week of March ,were unusually  large, being $536,000, an increase of  $73,000.  The regular chartered insurance companies hold $837, S72,884 in fire risks,in  Canada, and there is $327,814,465 of life  insurance in force.  Wheat in Chicago is selling at the lowest prices in six /months. May sold as  low as 69 l-8cl on Monday as against  85}^c. on January 4th last. A large corp  of winter wheat is   expected  this season.  The consumption of the cotton mills  in the Southern States is placed at 530,-  000 hales to date, against 5,18,000 hales  in 1896. and 453,000 bales in 1895.  Northern mills have taken 1,266,235  bales against 1,260,704 bales  last season.  There has been an active speculation  of late in street railway stocks. 'Toronto  sold up to 74, the highest price for a long  time. Increased earnings during March  and'a belief that the people will vote in  favor of 'Sunday cars have stimulated  the demand.  The' visible supply of wheat in the  United States and Canada is now 38,-  612,000 bushels as against 60,322,000  bushels a year ago. The amount on passage to Europe is; 19,040,000 bushels as  against 27,272,000 bushels a year ago.  Together the amount is 57,652,000  bushels against 87,594,000 bushels a year  a o, a decrease of ,29,942; 000 bushels.  The business situation at Toronto is  unchanged. There is a fair volume of  trade in wholesale merchandise, but the  great drawback is small profits, prices  being cut terribly. Merchants are cautious and acting slowly. We notice, however, that the imports of free and dutiable goods at Toronto for������ March show  an increase over.the same month of the  two previous years.  There is s������ill much complaint at Mont  real regarding general collections, and  there is evidently great scarcity , of the  circulating medium in the country parts,  as numerous instances are cited of hitherto cash buyers now taking full credit  terms, and of others who never renewed  a note now asking indulgences in this  ,respect; In the face of , this, however,  ipaper falling- due oh the 4th inst. in the  clothing and dry goods trade, has been  better provided for than was anticipated,  and no noteworthy failures are reported  as the result of default.  R. (J. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of  trade in the United States says: Failures  reported for the first quarter of 1897  number 3,992 against 4,031 last year,  with liabilities of $48,007,911, against  $57,425,135 last year. The manufacturing  failures are slightly fewer in number,  and smaller in liabilities chan last year,  but the trading i'ailuies fall a little behind those of the corresponding quarter  last year in number and very largely in  magnitude. The average, liabilities for  all manufacturing is only $2S,800, while  the average of all trading concerns is only  ,$7,810 against $10,0S0 last year, a decrease which indicates caution in buying  and debt creating.  ! There are cases of consumption so far  advanced that Bickle's Anti-Consumptive  Syrup will not cure, but none so bad that  it will not give relief. For coughs, colds  and all affections of the throat, lungs and  chest, it is a specific which I as never been  known to fail. It promotes a free .and  easy expectoration, thereby removing the  phlegm, aud gives the diseased parts a  chaxice to heal.  Here and There.  Raphael is said to have conceived, in  dreams, the ideas of some of his ��������� greatest  pictures. .  Oliver Cromwell had the largest brain  on record. It'weighed a little over sixty  ounces, but was found to be diseased.  Handel had one of the most phenomenal musical memories ever known. He  knew, by heart, over fifty operas from  beginning to end.  Ole Bull, the celebrated violinist, was  such a master of the instrument that he  could play a melody of considerable compass on only one string.  Lope do Vega was the most noted  dramatist. There still remains over 1,800  plays of his composition. About 300 of  the best have beeu collected and published.  True to I^ife.  "Harry says his life was a barren desert before he saw me."

There are pills  and   pills���������but Dr. Asrne-w's  Liver  Pills  at 20  cents a   vial  lead  in   demand.    The  sale  borders  on the phenomenal.  m   Newspaper   Man   In   Hard Xnck  Managed to Exist.  Six mouths ago a newspaper man  lam'e to Chicago to get work on one of  Ibe big papers here. Like many another  man from the country, he thought that  the fact that he was head and shoulders  above the other newspaper men in his  little town "was proof that he was able  to stand the keen competition in Chicago. But he found that the places were  tiled, and that there were at least 50  per cent more pegs than holes., He was  determined not to go back to his little  tow"h, so he remained in Chicago in the  hope that he'would get a place.  Meanwhile  he 'had no money whatever  and  had  to  practice  the  closest  economy. , He wrote five or six columns  of  copy each week and tried to sell the  stories to the Sunday papers.    Now and  then he sold something, but his income  during the six months was about   $2.50  per week, his  total  earnings  for that  period, in fact, being only $70.   Nevertheless he managed to live without borrowing   any   money,   for   he  had  no  friends iii Chicago from whom he could  borrow, and he was  top proud''to write  home  for   money.   , Instead   he  wrote  home  glowing   tales  of   the 'progress  ,>vhich   he was  making and told of the  advantages of .newspaper work in a big  city and its consequent rewards.     !K ������������������';.  Few people would believe that a man  could live in Chicago for six months on  $70^ but he did it.  Of course he did-not  dine at a fashionable restaurant.  He ate  his meals on Clark street at some sacrifice of his pride, but without the knowledge of  any of his acquaintances.    No  one, would know where he ate, for none  of  the' men whom   he saw during the;  day   would   go  to -such   a place.    His  meals  usually cost him   5  cents each,  and they were good meals, in quantity,  if not; in quality.  You can buy a luxurious breakfast on  Clark street for 5 cents. , It will consist  of three eggs, bread, butter and coffee,  and anyone inclined to doubt the statement; can go ; and /try the meals. The  places are easily found. There are always big signs outside of them containing names of the articles of food and  the prices. For 5 cents he bought his  dinner, which consisted of any kind of  meat, potatoes, bread and coffee. A  similar bill of fare at the same expense  formed his supper. Sometimes he would  pay 10 cents for his dinner, and then  he would get two more vegetables and  some pie for dessert. Thus his meals  cost IS cents a day, or $1.05 a week.  He slept in a 10 cent lodging house  in the same room with a half dozen other men. The beds were small, but he  always slept soundly, and none of the  inmates knew him. They were not inquisitive and were too much bothered  by their own troubles to care to ask his.  Seventy cents a week was the cost of  his lodging. , This was a total of $1.75  for a week's board and lodging. His  other fixed expenses were for tobacco,  newspapers and writing paper. He  smoked a pipe, the tobacco costing 10  cents a week. He had to buy a couple  of newspapers each day, which meant  25 cents a week, although sometimes  he would look at those in the reading  rooms of the libraries. His copy paper  cost him only 10 cents a week, leaving  a margin of 80 cents.  The only drawback about sleeping in  a 10 cent lodging house was that there  was no place afforded in which to write,  but he used to go to the public or Newberry library and do his writing there:  where there are ample facilities. Most  of his time was spent in traveling  around on the streets looking for good  Sunday stories.  Such was the life he led for six  months. A few weeks ago he was given  a place as a spare writer on the city  staff. Now he earns $10 or $12 a week,  and he is able to live more luxuriously.  But the reporter is now willing to believe, as he knows by practical experience, that a man who can make $2 or  $3 a, week need not starve in a big city.  ���������Chicago Times-Herald.  astronomer.    In   1838, with  the aid of  the best tables of the planet Venus then  accessible, he made the needful calculations for the projection of the transit of  that planet across tlie sun's, disk to occur in 1882,45   years thereafter.    This  bad  last been   observed in the United  States  by David   Rittenhouse in   1769.  In ,1882 he observed the  transit of  Venus, co-operating  with   other  astronomers   and  being  assisted  by Professor  ;Harkness  of  the Washington naval observatory, who   was   then ������president of  the  transit  commission.���������New   York  Tribune.  Disease Bearing ParMitea.  Texas fever, an infectious disease of  cattle,which prevails as an endemic.disease in certain regions, in the southern  portion of the United States, has been  shown, by the researches of Theobald  Smith and other bacteriologists belonging to the agricultural department, to  be due to a blood parasite belonging to  the protoza (Pyrosoma bigeminum of  Smith). In this disease the tick has  been shown to be the intermediate host  of the parasite. The ticks which fall  from infected animals' give birth to a  numerous progeny in the pastures frequented by them, and these young ticks  attach themselves to other animals  which subsequently feed in the, same  pastures and transmit to them the fatal  infection.-���������Surgeon General Sternberg  iu Popular Science Monthly.

Bright's Disease is a disease of  the Kidneys. It is tlie name given to the  fatty degeneration of those organs. It is  caused by excessive use of alcoholic  drinks. It is caused by,excessive eating of  rich load. It may be caused by exposure  to cold and moisture. It may be caused  by improper living.  But it's not with the cause we have to  deal.  It is with the cure.  It used to be' thought that Bright's  Disease was incurable.

Elias A. Long learned a lesson in the  application of manure when ai boy in  his father's nursery. He tells the story,  as follows, in American Gardening: We  purchased from a tannery a large pile  of compost, hair, ashes, lime and other  refuse, with enough bark in layers to  m ake till pile up well. In the win ter we  o drew this on' land devoted to nursery  and other crops, usually plowing it under in the spring. Sometimes on fall  plowed land we would incorporate the  mixture with the soil, by the use of the  cultivator: or   share  ., Bpring.  One of the things  pressed me as we dug  from soil tbus.manured was the way in  ���������which rootlets would lay hold of congenial bits of plant food. The tufts and  felted knots of hair would be the attraction to a mass of small roots. This is  illustrated in the accompanying sketch,;  in which a a a show bunches of hair.  This thing was seen not only in the case  of seedling and tree roots, but also in  those, of strawberry plants, which lie  much nearer the surface.  A lesson to be drawn from this is  , that the plowing in of manure as a  method of applying it should not yield  to surface applications in any marked  degree. The avidity with which roots  ���������eek out and lay hold of particles of  .manure in the case stated showed to me  , that there can be no mistake in putting  the plant food right where it will be  needed. With the surface and application of manure in the fall and winter  there is often great loss of fertility  through escape by leaching and surface  drainage during thaws in the winter.  If ; it be drawn to the plat and be kept  in piles until just before spring plowing or cultivating, such  loss is not ap-  ��������� preciable. ..;;���������<���������'���������'������������������.:.        ^���������./:..?��������� '.������������������  The question of the comparative merits of surface manuring, and the plow-  Crops For Green Manuring.  ,���������"��������� Country Gentleman says: "We have  used crimson clover, peas and barley foi  cover crops with great success. Barley  stands the hoi; weather of August an.3  September butter than oats. We have  also used rye to a limited extent. These  various crops maybe sown in the corn  or on the inverted barley or oat stubble  and either rye or wheat drilled in on the  potato ground, although the field may  riot be clear until the first to themiddk  of October." fr  A SUCCESSFUL OAT CROP.  THRIFT OF RUSSELL SAGE.  A LESSON IN MANURING.  ing in of manure may depend somewhat  on the crop also. It is plain in the case  of shallow rooted crops, like lettuce,  radishes, onions, strawberries, etc., that  the manure is not wanted at the same  level as with parsnips, cauliflower and  other deeper rooters. Then, again, surface manuring may, as in the case of  strawberries, serve an excellent purpose  as a mulch in keeping the soil cool and  in preserving moisture.  Another thing, all crops do not need  the same amount of manure. -It is a  poor plan, for instance, to be lavish in  the use of manure on potatoes and  then slight it on onions and celery.  Among crops that do the better for high  feeding I would place strawberries, celery, onions, lettuce, spinach, beets,  radishes, cabbage, cauliflower, squashes  and oucumbers. Of such, the extent of  the crop is almost measured by the  amount of manure, and SO to 40 tons  per acre each year is none too much.  The bush small fruits need less manure  than do strawberries, while vegetables, potatoes, peas, parsnips, carrots,  beans, tomatoes and melons get along  very well with one-half the manure  called for by the others named.  The Preparation of Soil���������Commercial Fertilizers Drilled In���������Change of Seed.  The unwise practice that has so largely, prevailed among farmers as a class,  and that has contributed' to so great an  extent in the diminished yields of: this  important .product, has been that the  oat crop, after all others are occupying  the choicest and most productive pbr>  tions of the farm, is the latest sown  not only, but is destined to struggle for  existence in soil' least adapted to its  growth and development. Oats sown on  a seed bed following a grass crop or turf  pasture seldom give good results, but  grown as one of the orops of a regular  four year rotation, following corn, potatoes, beans, etc., seems the most favorable course to pursue, according to a  western New York farmer who writes  as follows to Rural New Yorker:  After a long experience in oat culture, it has been learned that early and  thorough preparation of the soil pbsses-  eing a fair degree of fertility, good  clean seed sown with a drill at the rate  of two bushels per acre, as early in the  season as the soil is found to work in a  light and friable condition, are factors  that cannot be omitted if success is to  be expected. It has also been learned  thatno crop responds more readily to  a moderate v application of commercial  fertilizers drilled into the soil at the  time the seed is sown. After seeding, the  ground should be well rolled, thus firming the soil, inducing early growth of  the plants not only, but it also adds  much to the ease and pleasure in running the binder at the time of harvest.  Care should be taken that this crop is  not allowed to become overripe. Heavier,  brighter and more nutritious grain is  secured and the straw is made more  valuable and appetizing by harvesting  at a period when much of the'straw.is  apparently quite green, the precaution  being taken not to have the bundles so  large as to prevent curing properly for  housing or stacking, as the case may be.  Nor is it essential, as advocated by  many, that an occasional change of seed  is required for best results. ' And I may  state that for nearly a half century I  have grown each year continuously���������  with the exception of one year���������a mixture of the same two varieties of oats  that have gained for men a favorable  reputation as a grower of this special  crop.  A. Kecent   Occurrence   'Which   Illustrates  His Ruling Passion.  Many stories are toll in New York of  the thrift which invariably characterizes  the habits and conduct of Russell Sage.  A recent occurrence illustrates in a forcible manner his ruling passion. On Saturday last, while on his way to take an  elevated train, the great financier stopped  at a news stand and began looking^over  the papers there on sale. , J. Arthur  Joseph, an old friend of the "L" road  magnate, r came along.  "Good afternoon, Mr. Sage," cried Mr.  Joseph cheerily. ''Buying your evening  papers?"  "Oh, no, Arthur," replied Mr. Sage.  "No, no, Arthur. Not yet, Arthur. Hadn't quite made up my mind, Arthur���������"  '.���������. "Well, I'm just going to buy mine,"  said Joseph. "What paper do you read,  Mr. Sage?"   '.;.        ;-   -).;  "Oh, any of them���������any of them���������or  all of them, Arthur," said, Mr. Sage, as  a strange light came into his eyes.  "Well, have a set of them-with me;  it's my treat," said Mr. Joseph, and", he  handed Mr. Sage a full set of the afternoon newspapers, for. which he counted  our eleven cents. ���������  ; "Oh, very kind of" you; very kind of  you, indeed, Arthur," said Mr. Sage as  , he tucked the newspapers in his inside  pocket, and, taking Miv Joseph by the  arm, escorted0 him up the steps in the  rear toward the   "L" station.  A train was just pulling up to the  crowded platform as Mr. Sage and Mr.  Joseph, arm in arm, the latter with an  "L" ticket in his hand, approached the  ticket chopper.  < " Good evening, gentlemen," said the  ticket chopper, who knows Mr. Sage too  well to halt him for the formality of  exhibiting his pass.  The two men ran aboard the train,  the guard slammed' the gates and was  about to release his hand from the bell  rope when Mr. Joseph discovered that he  had forgotten to deposit his ticket in the  boxi '- .- /v. ���������';: ',..'  "By Jove, Mr. Sage," said Mr. Joseph,  "look here!

"Just give me the ticket, Arthur; give  me the ticket," and snatching the ticket  Mr. Sage rushed to the door of the car.  "Thomas* Com* here, Thomas!" cried  Mr. Sage to the ticket chopper, and the  latter left his box and ran up to Mr.  Sage.  "Put this ticket in the box, Thomas!"  said Mr. Sage.

NOVEL INVENTION  MAY  BE VALUABLE   FOR YACHTS  AND OTHER SMALL CRAFT.  The Invention of a Tiicli tsman of Scotland  ���������A Sheathing Propeller-^It Maybe Used  at Will or Thrown Out of Action.  John Ferguson, of Scotland, vice-commodore, of the Royal Forth Yacht Club,  and owner of the famous j'cutter Petron-  illa, has invented a propeller which can  be utilized to give the -vessel speed  through the water or be withdrawn  within the hull at a moment's notice.  The principle is such that the new invention is equally valuable to large and  small craft, whether it fly the yacht club  pennant or the company emblem that  floats at the masthead of a transatlantic  liner. ������������������..'���������   ,.' " -.��������� . ' ''���������'..���������  The one great difficulty with which  the operation of the propeller has been  .confronted from its earliest day is that  in sudden contact with a hard object,  the result is like to bo a, broken or twisted blade, und that means that <the vessel  must lie lip for repairs until the propeller  is in good condition. -While such accidents cannot always be avoided, it   often  Sugar Maple Trees.  The demand the  last few years foi  maple sugar has been such as to warrant  improved methods.   The maple sugar  worker of today is practical  and  modern. If he is the owner of a bush of 600  or 600 trees he can  clear all  the way  from $300 to $500  a  season.   This is  more than three times as much as the  owner of 25 years ago made during the  game period.   It is claimed that a good  maple tree will pay for itself in a couple  of tappings, and in the course of a few  years it will pay for itself in sugar ovei  and above what it would bring for timber many times over.    The consequence  is, farmers are no longer anxious to cut  down their hard maples and sell them  for timber. In planting a sugar orchard  care is taken to select only the  broad  leaf   hard maple  and  straight young  trees, trees sprung from the seed as often  as   possible,   and  not  saplings  grown  from an old stump. These make the best  Bugar producers,  according  to  an   authority which tells that there are many  degrees of maples, hybrids between the  soft maple and the hard maple.   They  are all good sap producers, but the sap  produces but little sugar.

In a report from the Massachusetts  station a general resume is given of  field experiments begun by the state station in 1891. The crops in 1895 upon  whioh the different forms of nitrogen  and potash were tested, were onions,  sweet corn, beans and tomatoes. Notes  and tabulated yields per plat are given  for each orop and summaries for crops  raised for several years in succession.  The following conclusions are drawn  from the summarized data:  Sulphate of potash in connection with  nitrate of soda has given in every case  but one (onions) the best results. Nitrate  of soda as nitrogen source has yielded  in every case, without reference to the  form of potash, the best returns. Sulphate of ammonia as nitrogen source,  in connection with muriate of potash as  potash source, has given the least satisfactory returns. The influence of the  difference in the general character of  the weather, whether normal or dry,  during succeeding seasons on the yield  of crops has been greater than that of  the different fertilizers used upon different plats during the same season.  Convenient Stock Barn.  Here is the plan of a Michigan stockman for a stock barn originally described in The Farm, Field and Fireside:  The claim for it is, it is convenient,  laves labor, and, above all, saves going  fcehind the anizaal in  order to give it  A Wail From a Kinc  Evenva king���������if he doesn't   happen  to  be born in Germany or Spain���������can learn  something from experience,   and can finally   appreciate   that   the  motion of the  world carries   royalty   as   well   as other  things along with it.    This possibility is  illustrated in a   way  at   once   amusing  and pathetic by a letter which the consul  general of the Niger   Coast   protectorate  recently received from Nana, once a king  of some eminence as African   kings   go,  but for several years   past   a  sorrowing  exile at Accra, with nothing to do except  to meditate.upon the   disastrous   results  of what, for a few days, he   thought was  a war with Great Britain.    "I   used   to  think my country big," he   writes, "and  no man fit or able to touch me.     But   I  have now been away  from   my., country  nearly   three   years   and   have   seen the  world, and I know I have been very foolish."   He asks the consul   to  remember  that wisdom was not to be expected of a  man who had never left his   native village, and says that the first real   instruction he ever received was when the English  man-of-war  bombarded   him.      "I  learn big lesson   now,"   the   letter  proceeds, "for I lose all my   cargoes, all my  cash, all my houses, and my town is now  only sand and bush.   , All   my people are  tar away and many of my   family killed  by the ship. I think your queen she punish me plenty.   I beg you, consul, to ask  queen to let me sit   down   for   my river  before I die.   I swear I never do   wrong  again, but will  make   a  small place for  trade in one   river close   for   Sapele.      I  hear queen have   big   play   for this year  because she live   long past other king or  queen.    I beg you ask her to have mercy  on me and pity my   case."    All   this   is  decidedly  unkingly,   but Nana confronts  a condition, not a   theory,   as  formerly,  and shows good sense, if not heroism, by  expressing a   desire   to   turn   his   royal  mind to trade.���������New York Times.

This power is exactly that which  Mr. Ferguson's invention possesses.  The first experiments with the sheathing  propeller, as it is called, were carried out  on a fishing boat of about seven tons,  yacht measurement. When not in use,  the propeller is invisible, as it is housed  in a tube fixed through the stern post of  the vessel. A movement of an extending  rod, or rather rods, brought about by the  pulling of a lever -in the engine room,  brings the propeller in position outside  of the boat. The blades are still feathered  ���������that i3, they are folded together. The  pull of a second lever unfolds the blades  and places them in position. Now let the  lever that gives the propeller motion be  pulled and the vessel will at once receive  that impetus which forces her . through  the water. V ���������  Although it is true that the invention  is adjustable to crafts of any size, it is  more particularly applicable to yachts  and other vessels of comparatively small  tonnage. 'Not only is the single propeller  of this sort valuable, but < so long as it is  possible to withdraw it into the hull  when not in use, propellers can be  placed at almost any desired point.  Again, it is not a necessity to operate  these propeller by means of steam; electricity or oil of some sort maybe utilized  to equal advantage. This is one reason  why the small craft would be benefited,  for it would oftentimes do away with the  big engine room force which the modern  steam yacht requires, and permit the use  in its stead of the more dainty electrical  engine or that which finds oil to be its  agent in making the wheels go round.  A fact well known to all sailor men  who have served aboard steam craft is  that the slower a propeller moves, the  more difficult the ship becomes to control. It sometimes happens that a vessel  whose engines are not over and above  powerful, gets caught in the seas in such  a way that her propeller becomes useless.  She then loses steerage way and flops  about in the trough of the sea and perhaps in the teeth of a gale becomes practically helpless. Mr. Ferguson's invention  renders it possible for one of these pro^  pellers to be placed on each side of a  boat, as well as at the stern. Equipped  in this way, it would be difficult for a  ship to take such a position that some  one of the propellers could not be utilized.  There is no objection to the electrical  engine. As the propeller may be operated  by the latter as   well   as   the   former, it  PLAN FOR STOCK BARN.  its feed. You feed from the alley always, and save wading in the droppings.

McKay of the Packer Collegiata  Institute lately wrote for the Brooklyn  Eagle an article on water, of which what  follows is an.extract:���������  The free surface of water acts like a  stretched , elastic membrane so that it  may be heaped , up in a glass without  overflowing,if the edge be greased to prevent adhesion. It is this elastic skin that  .makes''rain drops.'-spherical while falling  through the air, the particles of the drop  being forced into the form which has the  least surface for a given volume. It is  this surface tension of liquids that causes  them to rise in line hair-like tubes and  the cavities of bodies. The capillary and  osmotic force produced by the absorption  of liquids is sometimes very great, as  may be seen in the rise t of sap against  the force of gravity to the very tops of  the tallest trees. If a wedge of dry, wood  be driven into a cavity of ' a rock and  water poured upon it. the wood will  absorb the water and expand with such  force as to burst, the rock. In this way  the roots of growing plants become powerful agents in * the ' disintegration of  rocks. Water expands with heat and  contracts with cold until it. is cooled - to  39.2 degrees Fahrenheit, at which temperature it reaches its maximum density.  If when at this temperature it be either  cooled or warmed it expands and becomes  lighter. And thus it happens that Che  water under the ice in ponds, lakes and  rivers, even in the coldest weather, remains at about seven either solid or  liquid. The amount of heat necessary to  raise a pound of water continued to contract as it grew colder it would sink until  the whole body of water was reduced to  the freezing point and ice would form at  the bottom instead of at the surface and  the whole mass ,of water might freezo  solid in a single winter. This would very  seriously change the character of the  climate as well as destrov all aquatic  life. '  Water has very high specific heat, that  is it takes,more heat to warm it and it  gives up more heat in cooling than any  other solid or liquid. The amount of  water from the freezing point to the boiling point would make the same weight of  iron red hot and would melt more than six  times that weight of lead. Thus water  becomes an excellent medium for storing''  and carrying heat energy. It cannot be  heated hot enough to scorch or set fire to  inflammable materials, yet in cooling  through a' few degrees it gives up large  quantities of heat. For this reason it is  extensively used in rubber bottles as bed  warmers, and circulating through iron  pipes to heat houses. A large body of  water thus becomes a greater equalizer of  climate, storing up large quantities of  heat during the dav and summer to give  it out slowly during the night and winter. It is also the cause of land and sea  breezes. The land requiring less heat to  warm it than water, rises rapidly in temperature during the day, thus causing  ascending currents of air over the land  and a breeze from the water. At night  the water having absorbed large quantities of heat cools more slowly than the  land, causing a bifceze from the land  toward the sea.  When fresh water is cooled down to 83  degrees Fahrenheit, it begins to oongeal  and its temperature will remain constant  until it is all frozen, but during the process it gives up large quantities of latent  heat. A pound of water in turning to  ice gives up enough heat to raise four-  fifths of a pound from the freezing point  to the boiling point. This heat is given  to the air and surrounding bodies and  hence it may be said that "freezing Is a  warming process," that is warming to  other bodies. Farmers make use of this  principle when they carry tubs of water  into the cellar on a cold winter night to  keep the vegetables from freezing. A  heavy fall of snow usually raises the  temperature of the air for the same reason. Water containing salt and other  substances in solution may be cooled  several degrees below 32 degrees without  gives the owners of sailing yachts a  chance to have all the benefits -which result from proceeding under sail almost  altogether and at the same time having  sheathed in the hull a propeller that in  case of a calm will enable the vessel to  proceed without the loss of time which  must otherwise follow. The propellers  for small craft are only intended to promote a slow rate of speed, but this would  be a great improvement upon the unpleasant and enforced idleness of a calm.  The Sacredness of Prayer Rues.  Verses from the Koran and other passages considered sacred are generally  stamped on the fabrics used as prayer  rugs by the Mohammedans, and it is  criminal in Oriental law to export suoh  pieces. This is doubtless because use by  the Occidentals means the treading of  the sacred words under infidel feet, and  when you think it   over   it   is not to be  freezing.  Water is a very poor conductor of heat.  It may be made to boil at the surface of  a vessel while it is ice-cold a few lneb.es  below the surface. Hence it can be heated  only by convection, that is by applying  the heat to the lowest part of the vessel  and thus producing a series of ascending  and descending currents. It is by this  means that hot water is made to circulate through pipes used for heating buildings. Pure water at the sea level begins  to boil at a temperature of 212 degrees  Fahrenheit, which is called its normal  boiling point, having the same expansive  force as tho air. When water begins to  boil it cannot be made any hotter, no  matter how much heat is applied, unless  the pressure of its surface is increased.  But if it bo placed in a closed vessel  where the steam cannot escape it may  be heated to a much higher temperature.  This is the principle of Papin's digester  which is used for extracting gelatine  from bones. If, however, the pressure on  the surface be decreased by any means  water will boil at a much lower temperature than 212 degrees. It may even be  made to boil at the freezing point. If  the air and vapor be rapidly exhausted  from a closed vessel containing water it  will boil by consuming its own heat so  vigorously as to freeze into a solid mass.  A (iood  Sanitarian.

BETTER TIMES  AHEAD.  .    __ ,, '   w'. <  J[ HE news that another roo coke ovens  are to be built by the Union Colliery Co.,  at the wharf, as soon a& practicable,  means a good deal for this place- With  the 200 ovens in full blast, \ve.may expect  them to consume io,oo#:oris of coal each  month. The local or(provincial demand  for coal is steadily increasing, and requires  at present even 6,ooo tons per month.  This will assure good times5 but there is  the export of coal, and the demand for  our coal in California will continue.  Within the next month or six weeks the  old beats will be back and times doubtless be livelier than ever before. The  San tMateo may be looked for at any time  after the tirst of next month. And with  the completion of the bunkers there will  be no waiting for the steamers.  THE  HOT  WAVE.

Three hours a day is quite enough for the  strongest children for study when the  thermometer registers; 90 in,the shade.  But they have escaped responsibility by  throwing" it upon Mr. Bennett, the very  thing they should not have done. However, parents in some cases are taking  the^matttr into then; own hands���������keeping  their children at home. Some children  are already sick from the beat.' Watch  them carefully,, and if they seem  oppressd, take them out until the weather  is cooler. A good thing for the little ones  is to let them go into the ihady woods, or  down by the beach. They need a change  more than adults. Have a care for the  children !  VANCOUVEB-'S   WAY.  _������ HE Board of Trade of the enterprising city of' Vancouver has passed resolutions of indignation because the C. P .N.  steamers, bound north, do not stop there.  But to what use?   There is only one way  Vancouver  can get its  natural   share   of  this  trade  and that is  for its merchants  and capitalists to own a steamship line of  their  own.    The   Union Steamship  Co.,  is   unable    to    supply    the    necessary  steamers.     It   hasn't  the   capital.    The  Terminal  City   would   have   long  since  been able to command most of the trade  of the  north, and of the   Fraser valley  if  its business   men   had   stood   by   their  steamship   company.     Now   Victoria   is  waxing fat���������and we are glad o( it���������-out of  the Yukon trade and Vancouver although  much   nearer,   is   helpless   for   want o(  transportation  facilities, and can   only sit  idly by, while her  rival is getting  nearly  all the out-fitting for the miners.  parts'of Australia.-' ������������������.,,..:  ��������� For church services in summer an  open building should be bcated in a large  central plat of grouad and in a town of  the size of Union, one would be quite  sufficient for a union service for all religious societies; This would not only have  the advantage of comfort, but draw many  who do not usually attend church service.  A short sermon and a, plenty of good  music should be the rule. This would  also allow, for a short vacation for each  minister, only one being needed .at a  time���������-an arrangement which would give  them all a.period for rest and recuperation/ The surroundings should be made  beautiful with ornamental shade trees,  green grass, flowers and small fountains.  As an experiment a tent might be used,  sides rolled up.      t  .-   WONDERFUL   KLOKX'IKE.  ������T is wonderful ho>v people are, stirred  about everything relating to the gold  fields on the Y'.ukon ! Any story however  ridiculous, they are : ready to /swallow.  We have no doubt a good business in  selling gold bricks, duly marked "from  Klondike" could be carried on to advantage. And thpre need be but a very thin  veneer of gold upon "them. They would  gO'off like hot cakes at two-thirds their  supposed value. Writers who have never  been there, delight to give the public  information, they never themselves  possessed. Lecturers, who, a few years  ' ago crossed over some portion of the  arctic circle, gravely describe the country  and its auriferous appearance and probable recources. The- passes are high  mountain ranges, steep as the side of a  house, over which mules cannot, but do  ascend. The torrents, crowded into narrow channels, are tossed into spray, and  'all nature is wild, tumultuous and  bewildering.  The  people  sacrifice   the   earnings   oi  years, represented in comfortable   homes  for a little ready, cash to join the "innurn  crable caravans" chat piss into the "golden north."   They   watch''from  the' "i-a:n-  parts"   for    treasure-laden   shi ;.->?, accompanied with nrracd cruisers, to p.iss down'  the   Straits.    The   goven>m~nt looses .its  head,   and   with  mcunted poiicev t>eizi at  one grab a whole ha'.f of the gold bearing  claims.     The   miner,   in     his    ice clad  armor,   thaws w;Lh    lire   and   l.iborousiy  diss, with' pick and spade,   down through  the  frozen   ground,   first   here and   then  there, until after  weary months,   his eyes  are gladdened with the   sight of ''golden  sands;'-' and then   the  "paternal  government" pounces   down   and takes a claim  on either side!  No doubt its a wonderful country ! It's  wonderfully governed too! And the  people going there will have some wonderful experiences ! Let us steady ourselves, if we can, or we shall all be swept  into the stream which is carrying so many  away from their moorings.  NOTICE.  Cumberland and. Union Water-works  Company, lid.

I looked out of the open window.  The moon still shone brightly on that  angle of the house. We were a good  sixty- feet from the ground, and, look  where I would, I could see no foothold,  nor as much as a crevice in the brickwork.  "It is absolutely impossible," I answered.  "Without aid it is so.    But suppose  you had a friend up here who lowered  you this good stout rope which I see in  the corner,  securing   one   end  of it to  this  great hook in the wall.    Then,   I  think, if you were an active man, you  might climb up, wooden leg and all.  You would depart,  of course,  in the  same fashion,   and   your   ally   would  draw up  the  rope,   untie . it,from the  book, shut the  window,  snib it on the  |Inside, and get away in the way that  the .originally came.    As a minor point  'It may be noted," he continued, fingering the rope,  "that our wooden-legged  ifriend, though a fair climber, was not  la professional sailor.    His hands were  ,far   from   horny.     My   lens   discloses  :more than one "blood mark, especially  toward the end of the rope, from which  I gather that he slipped  down with  such velocity that he took- the skin off  his hands."  "This is all very well,',' said I, "but  the thing becomes more unintelligible  than ever. How about this mysterious  ally?   How came he into the room ?"  "Yes, the ally!" repeated Holmes,  pensively. "There are features of interest about this. ally. He lifts the  case from the regions  of the common-  fdace. I fancy that this ally breaks  resh ground in the annals of crime in  this country���������though parallel cases  suggest themselves from India, and, if  my memory serves me, from Sene-  gambia."  "How came he, then?" I reiterated.  "The door is locked, the window is inaccessible.    Was it through the chim-  Crate is much too small," he  answered. "I have already considered  thatpossibility." ...  .    "How then?" I persisted.  "You will not apply my precept,"  he said, shaking his head. "How often  have I said to you that when you have  eliminated the impossible, whatever  remains, however improbable, must be'  the truth? We know, that he did not  come through the door, the window, or  the chimney. We also know that he  could not have been concealed in the  room, as there is no concealment possible. Whence, then, did he come ?"  r ''He,came through the hole in the  roof," I cried.  "Of course he did.   He must have  done Bo,   If you'will have the kindness  to hold the lamp for me, we shall now  ..extend our researches to the room above  --������������������the secret room in which the treasure  ���������'���������was found."  He mounted the step's^ and, seizing &���������  -.rafter with either hand, he- swung him-1  ; self up into the garret.    Then, lying on:  his face, he reached down for tlie lamp  ..-  and held it while I followed him.  ��������� ��������� The chamber in which we found ������tlr--  selves was about ten feet one way and  six the other.    The floor was formed by  .the rafters, with thin lath and plaster  ^between, so that in wa-lking One had to"  -.step from beam to beam,    Tlie roof ran  ���������up to an apex, and w*as evidently the  jjrmer shell of the true roof of the house.  -���������There, \y,as no furniture of any sort, and  the   accumulated   dust   of  years   lay  thick upon the floor.  -'   ?iHere you are, you. see," said Sherlock Holmes, putting Jniis hand against  ���������gj!^ slooing wall.    "-Thins is- a trap-door  whiclfi"leads out^nto the.roof.    lean  rpress it back, and here is the roof itself,  sloping at a gentle  angle.    This, then,  is the way by which Nximber One entered.    Let us see if  we can find some  '-other traces of his individuality."  He-held down the. lamp to the floor,  and as he did so I saw for the second  time that night a startled, surprised  look come over his face. For myself,  ������������������ as I followed his gaze, my skin was  cold under my clothes.    Th������o floor was  ��������� covered thickly with the prints   of a  naked   foot���������clear,   well   defined, per-  ��������� fectly formed, but scarce half the size  ��������� of those oE an ordinary man.  "Holmes," I said in a whisper, "a  child has done this horrid thing."  He had recovered his self-possession  in an instant. "I was staggered for  the moment." he said, "but the tiling  -is quite natural. My memory failed  me,-or I should have been able to fore-  and finally he broke  out into   a loud  crow of delight.  "We are certainly in luck," said he.  "We ought to have very little trouble  now, Number One has had the .misfortune to tread in the creosote. You  can see the outline of the edge of his  small foot here at the sight of this evil-  smelling, mess. The carboy has been  cracked, you see, and the stuff has  leaked out."  , /  "What then?" I asked. '  "Why, we have got him, that's all,"  said he. "I know a dog that would  follow - that scent to the world's end..  If a pack can track a trailed herring  across a shire, how far can a specially  trained hound follow so pungent'a'  smell as this ? It sounds like a sum in  the rule of three. Tlie answer should  give us the��������� Bixt halloo ! here are'  the accredited representatives of the  law." :'���������������������������'���������.-.  Heavy steps and the clamor of loud  voices were, audible from below, and  the hail door shut with "a loud crash.  "Before they come." said Holmes,  "just put your hand here" on this poor  fellow's arm, and here on his leg.  What do you'feel?"  "The muscles are as hard as a board,"  I answered.  "Quite so. They are in a state of extreme contraction, far exceeding the  usual rigor mortis. Coupled with this  distortion of the face, this Hippocratic  smile, or 'risus safdonicus,' as the old  writers called it, what conclusion  would it suggest to your mind ?',  "Death from some powerful' vegetable alkaloid." I answered': "some  strychnine-like substance which would  produce tetanus."  > ���������  "That was the idea which'occurred  to me'the instant I saw the drawn  muscles of the face. On getting into  the room I at once looked for the means  by which the poison had entered' the  system. As you saw, I ..discovered a  thorn which had been driven or shot  with no great force into the scalp. You  observe that the part struck was that  which would be turned toward the hole  in the ceiling if the man were erect in  his chair.   Now examine this thorn."  I took it up gingerly and held it in  the light of the lantern. It was long,  sharp and black, with a glazed look  near the point as though some gummy  substance had dried upon it. The blunt  end had been trimmed and rounded off  with a knife.  "Is that an English thorn?" he asked.   .  "No, it certainly is not."  " Wi^th all these" data  you should be  able to draw some just inference,   But  here are the regulars ;  so the auxiliary-  forces may beat a retreat."  As he spoke, the steps which had  been coming nearer sounded loudly on  the passage, and a very stout, portly  man in a gray suit strode heavily into  the room. He was red-faced, burly  and plethoric, with a pair of very small  twinkling eyes which looked keenly  out from between swollen and puffy  pouches. He was closely followed by  an inspector in uniform, and by the  still palpitating Thaddeus Sholto.  "Here's a business !" he cried, in a  muifted, husky voice. "Here's a pretty  business,' But who are all of these?  Why, the house seems to be as full as a  rabbit-warren."  "I think you must recollect me, Mr.  Athelney Jones," said Holmes, quietly.  "Why, of course I do !" he wheezed,  "It's Mr. Sherlock Holmes, the theorist.  Kemember you ! I'll never forget how  you lectured us all on causes, and inferences and effects in the Bishopgate  jewel case. It's true you set, us on the  right track, but you'll own now that it  was more by good luck than good guidance."  "It was a piece of very simple reasoning."  "Oh, come now, come! Never be  ashamed to own up. But what is all  this? Bad business! Bad business!  Stern facts these���������no room for theories.  How lucky that I happened to be out  at Norwood over another case ! I was  At the station when the message arriv-  <ed. What d'you think the man died  -of?"  "Oh, this is hardly a case for me to  theorize over," said Holmes, dryly.  "No, no. Still we can't deny that  you hit the nail on the head sometimes,  poisonous Thaddeus may as well have  made murderous use of it as any other  man. , The card is some hocus-pocus-���������  a blind, as like as not. The only question is, How did he depart ?" Ah, of  course,- here is a hole in the roof."  With great activity, considering his  bulk, he sprang up the steps and squeezed through into the garret, and inir-  mediately afterward we heard. his  exulting voice proclaiming that he had  found the trapdoor.  "He can find, something," remarked  Holmes, shrugging his shoulders. "He  has occasional glimmerings of, reason.  I'l n'y a pas des sots si incommodes que  ceux qui ont de V esprit!"  "Yousee!" said Athelney Jones, reappearing down the steps again.  "Facts are better than mere theories,  after all. My view of the case is confirmed. There is a trap door communicating with the roof, and it is partly  open."-  "It was I who opened it,"  ��������� "Oh, indeed! You did^ notice it^  then?" He seemed a little crestfallen  at the discovery. "Well, whoever  noticed it, it shows how our gentleman  got away.    Inspector!"  "Yes, sir," from the passage,  "Ask Mr.r Sholto to step this way.  Mr. Sholto, it is n^ duty to inform you  that anything you may say will be  used against you. I arrest you in the  Queen's name as being concerned in the  death,of vour brother."  "There, now ! Didn't I tell you?"  cried the poor little man, throwing out  his hands, and looking from one to the  other of .us.;  "Don't trouble yourself about it, Mr.  Sholto," said Holmes. "I think that I  can engage to clear you of the charge."  "Don't promise too "much, Mr.  Theorist���������don't promise too much!"  snapped the detective. "You may find  it a harder matter than you think.",  "Not only will I clear him, Mr.  Jones, but I will make you a free  present of the name and description of  one of the two people who were in the  room last night. His name, I. have  every reason to believe, is Jonathan  Small. He is a poorly-educated man:  small, active, with his right leg off, and  wearing a wooden stump which is  worn away upon the inner side. His  left boot has a coarse, square-toed sole,  with an, iron band round the heel. He;  is a middle-aged man, much sunburned,  and has been a convict. These few indications may be of some assistance to  you, coupled "with the fact that there is  a good deal of skin missing from the  palm of his hand.    The other man���������"  "Ah! the other man?" asked Athelney Jones, in a  sneering voice, but im  ������������������tell it.    There  is nothing   more to be  ilearned here.    Let us go down."  MWhat is youy theory, then, as to  'those footmarks?" I asked, eagerly,  when we had regained the lower room  once more, .  -. "My dear Watson, try a little  analysis yourself," said he, wtth a  touch of impatience. "You know my  methods. Apply them, and it will be  instructive to compare results.  "I cannot conceive anything which  will cover the facts," I answered,  "It will be ciear enough to you  soon," he said, in an off-hand way. "I  think that there is nothing else of importance here, but I will look, He  whipped out his lens and a tape-measure, and hurried about the room on his  knees, measuring, comparing, examining with his long thin nose only a few  inches from the planks, and his beady  eves gleaming and deep-set like those  or a bird. So swift, silent and furtive  were his movements, like those of a  trained blood-hound picking out a  scent, that I could not but think what  a terrible criminal he would have made  had he turned his energy and sagacity  against the law instead of exerting  tiiern in its defence. As he hunted  about, he kept muttering to  himselt,  J)ear me ! Door locked, I understand.  -Jewels worth half a million missing.  Sow was the window ?"  "Fastened ; but there are steps on the  sill."  "Well, well; if it was fastened the  steps could have nothing to do with the  matter. That's common sense. Man  might have died in a fit; but then the  jewels are missing. Ha! I have a  theory. These flashes come upon me  at times. Just step outside, sergeant,  and you, Mr. Sholto. Your friend can  remain. What do you think of this,  Holmes? Sholto was, on his own confession, with his brother last night.  The brother died in a fit, on which  Sholto walked off with the treasure.  How's that?"  "On which the dead man very considerately got up and locked the door  on the inside."  ''Hum! There's a flaw there. Let  us apply common sense to the matter.  This Thaddeus Sholto was his brother ;  there was a quarrel; so much we know.  The brother is dead and the jewels are  gone. So much also we know. No  one saw the brother from the time  Thaddeus left him. His bed had not  been slept in. Thaddeus is evidently  in a most disturbed state of mind. His  appearance is���������well, not attractive.  You see that I am weaving my web  round Thaddeus. The net begins to  close upon him."  "You are not quite in possession of  the facts yet," said Holmes. "This  splinter of wood, which I have every  reason to believe to be poisoned, was in  the man's scalp, where you still see the  mark; this card, inscribed as you see  it, was on the tabic ; and beside it lay  this rather curious stone-headed _ instrument. How does all this fit into  your theory?"  "Confirms it in every respect," said  the fat detective, pompously. "House  is full of Indian curiosities. Thaddeus  brought this up, and if this splinter be  pressed none the less, as I could easily  see, by the precision of the other's  manner.  "Is   a rather curious person," said  Sherlock Holmes, turning upon his  heel. "I hope before very long., to-be  able to intreduce you to the pair of  them.    A word with you, Watson."  He led me out to the head of the  stair. ' 'This unexpected occurrence,"  he said, "has caused us rather to lose  sight of the original purpose of bur  journey."  "I have just been thinking so," I  answered. "It is not right that Miss  Morstan should remain in this stricken  house."  "No. You must escort her home.  She lives with Mrs. Cecil Forrester, in  Lower Carnberwell; so it is not very  far. I will' wait for you here, if you  will drive out again. Or perhaps you  are too tired ?"  "By no means. I don't think I could  rest until I krsow more of this fantastic  business. I have seen something of  the rough side of life, but I give you  my word that tMs quick succession of  strange surprises- to-night has shaken  my nerve completely. I shorald like,  however, to see- the matter through  with you, now that I have got sc far."  "Your presence will be of great service to me," he answered, "We shall  work the case out, independently,, and  leave this fellow Jones- to exult  over any mare'&^nest which he  may choose to ������onstrvEst.

I would  rather have Toby's help- thaathat of  the whole detective fsree of London."  "I shall bring him;,- then,"' said I.  "It is one now. I ought to-be back  before three, if I can get a fresh horse."  "And I," said Holmes, "shall see  what I can learn from Mrs. Bernstone,  and from the Indian servant, who, Mr.  Thaddeus tells me, sk-eps in. the next  garret. Then I shall study the great  Jones' methods, and listen io his not  too delicate sarcasms.. 'Wir sind  gewohnt dass die Me:oschen yerhehnen  was sie nicht verstehen.' Goethe- is  always pith}'."  CHAPTER VII,  THE EPISODE OF THE BARREL.  The police had brought a cab with  them, and in this I escorted Miss  Morstan back to her home. After the  angelic fashion of women, she had  borne trouble with a calm face as long  as there was some one weaker than  herself to support, and I had found her  bright and placid by the side of the  frightened housekeeper. In the cab,  however, she first turned faint, and  then burst into a passion of weeping, so  sorely had she been tried by the adventures of the night. She has told me  since that she thought me cold and distant upon that journey. She little  guessed the strugirlo within my breast,  or the effort of self-restraint which held  me back. My sympathies and my love  went out to her, even as 1113- hand had  in the garden. I felt that years of the  conventionalities of life could not teach  me to know her sweet, brave nature as  had this one day of strange experiences,  Yet there were two thoughts -which  sealed the words of affection upon my  lips. She was weak and helpless, shaken in mind and in nerve. It was to take  her at a disadvantage to obtrude love  upon her at such a time. Worse still, she  was rich. If Holmes' researches were  successful, she would be an heiress.  Was it fair, was it honorable, that a  half-pay surgeon should take advantage of an intimacy which chance had  ���������brought;;about ? Might, she not look  upon me as a mere vulgar fortune-  seeker ? I could not bear . to risk that  such a thought should cross her mind.  This Agra treasure intervened like an  impassable barrier between us.  It was  nearly two  o'clock when we  reached Mrs. 'Cecil'Forrester's.    The  servants had   retired hours   ago,   but  Mrs. Forrester had been  so interested  by   the strange message which Miss  Morstan had received,, that she had sat  up   in   the   hope   of her  return.    She  opened the door herself, a middle-aged,  graceful woman, and it gave me joy to  see how tenderly her  arm  stole round  the   other's waist  and  how  motherly  was the voice in'which she greeted her.  She was clearly no mere paid dependent, but an honored  friend.    I was in-  . troduced, and Mrs. Forrester earnestly  begged me to step in and to tell her our  adventures.    I explained, however, the  importance of my errand, and promised  faithfully to  call  and report" any progress Avhich we might make  with the  case.    As  we  drove   away   I stole a  glance back, and I still seem to see that  little group on the step, the two graceful, clinging   figures,   the half-opened  door,   the   hall light   shining through  stained glass, the .barometer, and the  bright stair-rods.    It was  soothing to  catch even  that passing  glimpse  of a  tranquil English home in the  midst of  the wild, dark business which had absorbed us.  And the more I thought of what had  happened" the wilder and darker it  grew. I reviewed the whole extraordinary sequence of'events as,I rattled  on through the silent gas-lii; streets.  There was the original problem ; that  at least was pretty  clear now.    Tha  FROM  THE  JOKE   FOUNDRY.  To Those About to Marry.  Well may the oniens make you falter.

Dr. Talmace Pictures''the "Working:  Dur   Christ    in    Common  Apparel���������The  '    Scars   or Earth���������Glorious   ThouEhts  iii-  '!>   spired by the Resurrection of Christ.     '  ' Washington, April 18.���������This sermon  of Dr. Talmage will ��������� set its readers to  thinking on new lines and will make  this season of Eastermore inspiring than  ever. The text is John xx, 15, "She, supposing him to be the gardener."      ..  Here are Mary Magadalene and Christ,,  just after his resurrection. For 4000 years  ,'.',������ grim and ghastly tyrant had been killing people and dragging them into his  cold place. He had a passion for human  Bkulls. For 40 centuries he had been unhindered in his work. He had taken  down kings and queens and conquerors  and those without fame. In that cold  palace there were shelves of skulls, and  pillars of skulls, and altars of skulls, and  even the chalices at the-'table were made  of bleached skulls. To the skeleton of  Abel he had added the skeleton of all  ages, and no one had disputed his right  until ono Good Friday, about 1,867,years  ago, as near as I can calculate it, a  mighty stranger came to the door of that'  awful place, rolled back the door and  went in arid seizing the tyrant, threw  him to the pavement and put upon the  tyrant's neck the heel of triumph.     ,  Then the mighty stranger, exploring  all the ghastly furniture of the place and  walking through the labyrinths, and  opening the dark cellars of mystery and  tarrying under a roof the ribs of which  were made of human bones���������tarrying for  two nights /and a������ day, the! nights very  dark and the day very dismal, he seized  the two chief pillars of that awful palace  and rocked them until it began to fall,  ��������� and then laying hold* of the ponderous  front gate, hoisted it from its hinges-  and marched forth, crying, "I am the  Resurrection!" That event we celebrate  this Easter/morn, Handelian and Beetho-  vean miracles of sound added to-" this  floral decoration which has set the placd  abloom. '.,-���������;  Scene at the Tomb.  There are three, or four things' which  the world and the church havo not noticed in regard to the resurrection of  Christ. First, our' Lord in gardener's  attire. Mary Magdalene, grief struck,  stands by the rifled sarcophagus of Christ  wood, toiling amid the heat and the dust  of the potteries, until he could   make for  Queen   Charlotte   the   first   royal   table  service of   English   manufacture!    That  was what helped   James Watt, scoffed at  and caricatured   until   he   could put on  wheels the thunderbolt   of   power which  roars by day and night in every   furnace  of the locomotive   engines   of   America.  That is what helped   Hugh    Miller, toiling amid the quarries of Cromarty, until  every rock became to him   a   volume   of  the world's biography and   he found the  footsteps of  the   Creator   in the old red  sandstone.  Oh,- the world wants a Christ  for the office, a Christ for the kitchen,  a  Christ for the   shop,    a    Christ   for   the  banking house, a Christ for the   garden,  while spading and planting and   irrigating the territory! Oh, of course we want  to see Christ at last in royal robe and be-  diamonded, a celestial equestrian mounting the white horse, but from this Easter  of 1897 to our last  Easter   on   earth   we  most need to see Christ as Mary   Magda  lene saw him at the  ing  daybreak, "suppos-  him to be the gardener 1"  Hope Tor Great Sinners.    '*  Another thing which the   church  and turns around, hoping she can find  the track of the sacrilegious resurrectionist who has despoiled the grave, and she  finds some one in working apparel come  forth as if, to water the flowers or uproot  tho weeds from the garden or set to re-  climbing the fallen vine���������some one in  working apparel, his garments perhaps  having the sign of the dust and the dirt  of the occupation.  Mary Magdalene, on her face   the rain  of a fresh shower.of   weeping,   turns   to  this workman ana charges him   with the  desecration of the tomb,   when,    lo!    the  stranger   responds,    flinging   his   whole  soul into one word which   trembles with  all tho    sweetest   rhythm   of   earth and  heaven, saying, "Mary!"    In, that peculiarity of accentuation   all the  incognito  fell off, and she   found   that   instead   of  talking with an humble gardener of Asia  Minor she was   talking   with   him   who  owns all the hanging (gardens, of heaven.  Constellations the clusters   of   forgetme-  nots, the sunflower the chief   of   all, the  morning sky and mid-night aurora,   flaring terraces   of   beauty,   blazing   like a  summer wall with coronation   roses   and  giants of  battle.    Blessed   and   glorious  mistake of Mary Magdalene!    "She supposing him to be  the   gardener."    What  does that mean?   It means that we have  an everyday Christ for everyday work in  everyday apparel. Not on Sabbath morning in our most   seemly   apparel   are we  more attractive to Christ   than we are in  our everyday work dress,   managing our  merchandise, smiting our anvil, plowing  our. field,    tending    the   flying   shuttles,  mending   the   garments   for our  household, providing food for   our   families or  toiling with weary pen or   weary   pencil  or weary chisel.    A working day    Christ  in, working day   apparel   for   us   in our  every-day toil.     Put   it into the highest  strain of this Easter anthem, "Supposing  him to be the gardener."  In WorUinjr Clothes.  If Christ   had   appeared   at   daybreak  with a crown upon his head   that would  have seemed to suggest   especial   sympa-]  thy for monarchs; if Christ had appeared  In chain of gold and with robe diamonded, that would have seemed   to be espec-  , ial sympathy for the affluent;   if   Christ  had   appeared   with    soldier's  sash   and  sword dangling at his   side,   that  would  have seemed to imply especial   sympathy  for warriors; but when I  find   Christ in  -gardener's habit, with perhaps the flakes  of the earth  and   of   the   upturned   soil  upon his garments, then   I   spell   it out  that he has hearty and   pathetic    understanding with everyday work and   everyday anxiety and everyday fatigue.  ���������     Roll it down in   comfort   all   through  these isles.    A   working   day   Christ   in  .working day apparel.  Tell it in the dark-  ': est corridor of tho   mountain to the poor  miner.    Tell it to   the factory   maid   in  most unventilated establishment at Low-  ' ell or Lancaster.    Tell it to the clearer of  ��������� roughest new ground in western   wilder-  ' ness.    Tell   it   to   the sewing woman, a  stitch in the side for   every tititch   in the  ] garment, some of their   cruel   employers  ��������� having no right to   think  that they will  get through the door of heaven any more  i than they   could   through    the   eye of a  j broken needle which has just dropped on  j the   bare   floor   from   the   pricked   and  ' bleeding   fingers   of    the     consumptive  'sewing girl.    Away with your talk about  [hypostatic union, and   soteriology  of the  j council of Trent, and the metaphysics  of  t religion   which   would   freeze   practical  i Christianity our of the world,    but   pass  I along this gardener's coat to all   nations  ; that they may   touch    the hem of it and  feel the thrill of   the    Christly   brotherhood.    Not   supposing   the   man   to  be  I Caesar,not supposing him to be Socrates,  but '' supposing him to be the gardener.''  Oh, that is what helped Joseph   Wedg-  up. It means  12   at   mid;  midnoon. , Jt  God is seven  and  the world have not noticed in regard to  the resurrection of Christ, is that he made  his first post mortem appearance to one  who had been the seven deviled Mary  Magdalene. One wpuld have supposed he  would have made his first posthumous  appearance to a woman who had always  been illustrious for goodness. There, are  saintly women who have always been  saintly, saintly in girlhood, saintly in  infancy, always saintly. In nearly all our  families there have been saintly aunts.  In my family circle it was saintly Aunt  Phebe. In yours saintly Aunt Martha or  saintly Aunt Ruth. One always saintly.  But not so was the one spoken of in the  ���������>text: V;i '-     ���������;, :  While you are not to confound her  with the repentant courtesan who had  made" her long locks do the work of  tower at Christ's foot washing, you are  not to forget that she was exocrised of  seven devils. What a capital of demono-  logy she must-have been! What a chorus  of all diabolism! Seven devils���������two for  the eyes and two for the hands, and two  for the feet; and one for the tongue.  Seven devils. Yet all these are extirpated,  and now she is as good as once she was  bad, and Christ honors her with the. first  posthumous appearance. What does that  mean?  Why, it means for -worst sinner   greatest   grace.    It means those lowest'   down  shall come perhaps highest  that the clock that   strikes  night   may   strike   12  at  means that   the   grace   of  times stronger than  sin.    Mary   Magdalene the seven deviled became Mary Magdalene the seven angeled.    It means that  when the Lord meets   us   at last he will  not throw up to us what   we have  been?  All he said to her   was   "Mary!"    Many  people having   met   her   under such circumstances "would'  have   said: "Let   me  see, how many devils did you have? One  two. three, four, five, six, seven. What a  terrible piece you were when I   first met  you."   The most of the Christian women  in our day would   have   nothing   to   do  with Mary   Magdalene,    even   after   her  conversion, lest somehow   they   be compromised.    The only thing I have to   say  against women is   that   they   have   not  enough   mercy   for   Mary     Magdalene.  Christ put all pathos,   and   all   reminiscence, and all anticipation,   and   all par  don, and   all   comfort,   and   all heaven  into one word of   four   letters, "Mary!"  Mark you, Christ did not appear to some  Bible Elizabeth,   or   Bible   Hannah,   or  Bible Esther, or Bible Deborah,   or Bible  Vashti,    but   to   Mary; not   to   a Mary  against whom nothing   was   said, not to  Mary, the mother of Jesus, not to Mary,  the mother of James,   not   to  Mary, the  sister of Lazarus, but to a seven   deviled  Mary.  There is a man seven deviled���������devil of  avarice, devil of pride, devil of hate,  devil of indolence, devil of falsehood,  devil of strong drink, devil of impurity.  Good'can take them all away, 7 or 70.  I rode over the new cantalever bridge  that spans Niagara���������a bridge 900 feet  long, 850 feet of chasm from bluff to  bluff. I passed over it Avithout any anxiety. Why? Because 22 locomotives and  22 oars laden with gravel had tested the  bridge, thousands of people standing on  the Canadian side, thousands standing  on the American side to applaud the  achievement And however long the train  of our immortal interests may be, we are  to remember that God's bridge of mercy  spanning the chasm of sin has been fully  tested by the awful tonnage of all the  pardoned sin of all ages, church militant  standing on one bank, church triumphant standing on the other bank. Oh,  it was to the seven dt .ed Mary that  Christ made his first post- mortem appearance.  There is another thing that the world  and the church have not observed in regard to this resurrection, and that is, it  was the morning twilight.  .Master Dawn.  If the chronometer had been   invented  A short question, but a whole crucifixion  of agony in it. Why? Shadow on the  graves of good men and women who  seemed to die before their work was done.  Shadow on all the graves of children  because we ask ourselves why so beautiful a craft launched at all if it was to be  wrecked one mile outside of the harbor?  But what did Mary Magdalene have to  do in order to get more light on that  grave? She had only . to wait. ,' After  awhile the Easter.sun rolled up, and the  whole place, was flooded with light. What  have you and I to do in order to get more  light on our own graves and light up>...  the graves of our dear loved ones? Only  to wait.  Charles V of-Spain with   his   servants  and torches went down into  the vault of  the necropolis where   his   ancestors were  buried, and went deeper, farther on until  he came to a cross   around   which   were  arranged the  caskets   of   his   ancestors.  He also found a   casket   containing   the  body cf one of his own family.    He   had  that casket opened, and there by the em-  bulmer's art he found that the   body was  as perfect as   18     years   before   when it  was entombed   ' But   under the exploration his body   and mind   perished.     Oh,  raj, friends,   do    not   let   us   morbidly  struggle with the shadows of  the   sepul-  chtir.  What are we to do? Wa-iti It is not  r'-to evening   twilight   that   gets   darker  and darker.    It   is the morning twilight  that gets brighter and   brighter   into the  perfect day.    I preach it to-day,.

Tt was in the   morning   twilight   that   Mary.-   Magdalene    .mistook  Christ for a gardener.  Another   thing'  the    world   and     the  church   have     not     observed���������-that   is, <  Christ's, pathetic   credentials.    How   do  you knowrit was  not, a   gardener?

A scar in  the right palm, a scar in the left palm, a  scar amid the ribs���������scars, scars,  is the way they knew him. That  way   you and I will know him.  Aye,: am   I saying   this   morning   too  much when I say that will be one of the  ways in which you and I will know each  oi&ie'r by the scars of earth;. scars of accident, scars of sickness, scars of   persecution, scars of hard work, scars of   battle,  scars of old   age?.   When   I   see  Christ's  resurrected body  having   scars, it makes  me think that our remodeled   and; resurrected bodies will have scars.    Why,    before we get out of this world some   of us  will be covered with, scars all oyer. Heaven will not be a bay   into   which   float  summer yachts after a   pleasuring,   wltht-  the gay bunting and with   the   embroidered sails as fair as when they  wTere first  unfurled.    Heaven   will   be more  like a:  navy yard   where   men-of-war   come   in  from . Trafalgar and Lepanto, men-of-war  with maists twisted by a   cyclone,   men-  of-war struck on all sides   by 74   pounders, men-of-war with   decks   scorched   of  the shell.    Old Constitution, old Constellations, floating in discharged   from service to rest forever.    In   the resurrection  Christ credentialed by scars.    You and I  will be credentialed,     and will recognize  each other by scars.     Do you think them  now a disfigurement? Do you think them  now a badge of endurance?, I tell you the  glorious thought this   morning, they are  going to be the means of heavenly recognition.  There is one more thing that the world  and the church have not noticed in this  resurrection of Christ, and that is that  Christ from Friday to Sabbath was lifeless in a hot climate where sanitary prudence demanded that burial take place  the same day as death, and where there  was no ice to retard dissolution. Yet,  after three days he comes up so healthful,  so robust and so rubicund Mary Magdalene takes him for a gardener. Not supposing, him to. be an invalid from a hospital, not supposing him to be a corpse  from the tomb, but siipposing him to be  the gardener.

An officer of the United States Lighthouse Bureau tells a good story on himself; While on a trip to England he  visited one of the big lighthouses with  an English official. He was examining  the mechanism of the monster revolving  lamp and wished ��������� to see how many  seconds would elapse before it completed  a revolution. He took a half-crown piece  from his pocket and placed.it on the revolving framework.  Watch in hand he patiently waited for  the coin to come round again to where  he was standing, but no half crown appeared., The seconds lengthened into minutes���������still .no half crown! .  "Strange!" he exclaimed. "What can  be the meaning of it?"  In order to ascertain the cause of the  strange phenomenon, lie walked round to  the other side of the lamp, and in doing  so encountered one of the lighthouse men,  wbo touched his hat and said:"Thank  you, sir, "in an undertone,  ��������� The -man,.': seeing the coin coming towards him, had pocketed it, thinking it  was meant for a tip. -  )  WAS SLOWLY DYING.  al  THE  RESULT  OF AN  ATTACK  OF  LA GRIPPE AND PNEUMONIA.  The Stranjre Case of Mr. James Owen, or  JohiiviUe���������Doctors Told Him His Lunsi  Were Afleeted and Hie Could Not Recover  ���������Now jn Good  Health.  From the Sherbrooke Gazette.  When a man faces   what    medical authorities tell him is   certain   death,   and  regains health and strength, he is naturally grateful to   the   medicine   that   has  restored him.    Such a man is Mr. James  Owen; one of the best known  farmers in  the vicinity of Johnville,' Que.  Mr. Owen  tells his story of   shatttered   health   and  renewed   strength   as follows: "On   the  17th of December, 1894,    I   was attacked,  with la grippe.   A week later the trouble  developed   into pneumonia   in   its worst  form, and I   did   not leave, my bed until  the first of March, 1895, and then   I was  so weak that; I was unable to walk alone.  All winter my life hung in   the balance.  Summer came, and I was  still weak and  feeble, though with the warm   weather I  gained a little strength.    I  had however,  but   very little power in   my  legs, and I  could not ride a mile in   a   buggy owing  to the pain they caused   me.    My   lungs  also troubled me   and   I   raised   a great  deal of matter. I then consulted the best  doctor we have   in   this   section.of province.    He told   me   candidly  that I was  past medical help.    He,said that my left  lung was'in"'a'state of collapse,   and that  my right lung, was   also   affected.    This  was in July,   1895.    For'1 the next three  A'Cen tury of Dismemberment.  The idle talk about the integrity of  the Turkish empire deceives nobody today.. The dismemberment of Turkey began over 100 years ago. In 1783 Turkey  lost the Crimea. In 1S30 she lost Greece.  In 1857 Moldavia and Wallachia, the two  Danubian principalities, were united, and  finally became the'..present flourishing  kingdom of Roumania under King  Charles in 1881. In 1862 the Turkish  garrison evacuated Belgarde, and in  1878 Servia became an independent kingdom. Bulgaria is,, virtually" independent  under Prince Ferdinand, and Turkey  quietly acquiesced in the absorption of  eastern Roumelia in' 1887. Kars and  Batum were snatched by Russia in 1878.  England seized Cyprus in the same year,  and Austria was comfortably installed in  Bosnia and Herzegovina. Where Is the  alleged integrity of the Turkish empire  in the face of the above historical facts?  Bosnia and Herzegovina, two essentially  Mussulman provinces, have nothing in  common with Austria, which now rules  over them.   : '���������>.-.  But when the question   of   Crete   and  Greece comes to be; considered, all Christian Europe shakes with   holy   horror at  the unreasomible aspirations of Greece in  seeking to free an   island inhabited by a  homogeneous population,   professing  the  same faith and situated at its very doors.  But in this advanced era of civilization a  new force, that makes for  justice,   is always felt on   occasions   like   this among  civilized nations, and that is public opinion.  While Lord Salisbury was declaring  in the house of Lords   that  Crete cannot  be united to Greece. 100 English Liberals  were signing a telegram of   sympathy to  King George, and a monster   meeting of  30,000 Englishmen in   Hyde Park   were  passing   resolutions   in   favor of Greece.  -���������Demetrius N.

I was so pressed for  breath at times .that, I could not walk  any distance without stopping to regain  it. In the month of November I began to  take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. It was  certainly a forlorn hope and I admit I  did not expect much benefit from them,  but took them rather to please a friend  who urged me to do so. I believe T was  surprised when T found they were helping me, for I thought I was beyond the  aid of medicine, but help me they, did,  and I gladly continued their' use. The  result is they have made a well man of  me. I have not a pain about me, my  breath comes as freely as it ever did, and  I am strong and vigorous. My case can  be briefly summed up in a few words.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have given me  a new lease of life and I am glad to let  everybody know it."  "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills create new  blood, build lip the nerves, and thus  drive disease from the system. In hundreds of cases they have cured after all  other medicines had failed, thus establishing the claim that they are a marvel  among the triumphs-of'-, modern medical  science. The genuine Pink Pills are sold  only in boxes, bearing the full trade  mark, ."Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for  Pale People." Protect yourself from imposition by refusing any pill that does  not bear the registered trade mark  around the box.  arid Mary had as good a watch as some  of the Marys of our time have, she would  have found it was about half-past 5  o'clock a. m. Matthew says it was in the  dawn. Mark says it was at the sunrising.  Luke says it was very early in the morning. John says it was while it was yet  dark. In other words, it was twilight.  That was the o'clock at which Mary  Magdalene mistook Christ for the gardener. What does that mean? It means  there a.e shadows over the grave un-  lifted, shadows of mystery that are hovering. Mary stooped down and tried to  look to the other end of the crypt. She  gave hysteric outcry. She could not see  to the other end of that crypt.  Neither can you see to the other end  of the grave of your dead. Neither can  we see to the other end of our own grave.  Oh, if there were shadows over the family  plot belonging to Joseph of Arimathea,  is it strange that there should be some  shadows over our family lot? Easter  dawn, not   Easter noon.

Why could they not  have uttered some farewell words    Why?  Glorious  Consolation.  After Christ's interment every celuITar  tissue broke clown, and nerve and artery  and brain were a physiological wreck,  and yet he comes up swarthy, rubicund  and well. When I see after such mortuary  silence such' radiant appearance, that  settles it that whatever should become of  the bodies of our Christian dead they are  going to come up, the nerves restrung,  the optic nerve reillumiued, the ear drum  a-vibrate, the whole body lifted up, without its weaknesses and worldly uses for  which there is no resurrection. Come, is  it not almost time for us to go out to  meet our reanimated dead? Can you.not  hear the lifting of the rusted latch?  Oh, the glorious thought, the glorious  consolation of this subject when I, find  Christ coming up without any of the  lacerations���������for you must remember he  was lacerated and wounded fearfully in  the crucifixion���������coming up. without one!  What does that make me think? That  the grave will get nothing of us except  our wounds and imperfections. Christ  went into the grave exhausted and bloodless. All the currents of his life had  poured out from nis wounds. He had  lived a life of trouble, sorrow and privation, and then he died a lingering death.  His entire body hung on four spikes. No  invalid of 20 years' suffering ever went  into the grave so white and ghastly and  broken down as Chri������t, and yet here he  comes up so rubicund and robust she  supposed him to lie the gardener.  Ah, all the side aches, and the headaches, and the back aches, and the leg  aches, and the heart itches we will leave  where Christ left his.
