The federal authorities have but a  few weeks-with in which   to   take  action in reference to   certain   statutes of a   a   restrictive   character  against the  Japanese,   and    which  were passed by the British   Columbia Legislature during the session  of  1900.     The   British   Columbia  ministers when   here   last   winter  were asked to give assurances   that  this legislation would   be   repealed  by the legislature,   but as    no   action was taken, the  Dominion   will1  have no alternative but to disallow  fontein aiidir.    lie says  * "*" i .. r      ***  W. S. Duff has told-rme.thatfoUbw-  ing oh the day after -the" fight   at  ' Viakfontein, May 20, Lieut. Hearn  ** t t t  told him, that while lying   on .the  ground wounded, he" saw about   20  yards from him   Lt. ' Spring, and  Sergt.  f Findley,     both    .slightly  wounded."  They "were , binding  up  each others wounds, when a young  Boer with a pink puggaree  around  his hat,.came   up  and   shot   both  dead."   Lt. Hearn   lay   q uite��������� still.  The Boers, thinkiht' him dead, con-  tented themselves1-with  taking his  'horse and   leggings.      Lt.   Hearn  said that the horses of our wounded  were shot bys Boers.    'Lieut.   Duff  collected  the   testimony   of   eignt  privates and non-commissioned officers who affirmed   that   they   saw  Buers shoot our wounded.    Several  of the men saw a   B. er,   evidently  some one in   authority,   trying   to  stop his  nun  from   snooting   our  wounded."  Tlie foregoing is taken from Lord  Kitchener's report on the biibject.  He has wired that he would supplement it with sworn testimony.

Upon  ^arriving at the mouth of the. elope  t  the alarm was given and relays of  men weie detailed to fight the fire,  which up to time of going to press,  was still burning but believed to '  be well under control.

Of all the districts  now������ open for settlement the Temiscaming appears to present the'greatest attractions as ,a purely agricultural district -to settlers from. Eastern Ontario on account of its fadvantages in the way of water communication and the prospects of close  connection with  the leading markets  , of Ontario by rail in the near future. It possesses the largest continuous area of first-class agricultural land, the group of townships of  rich, level'-land now surveyed and  open for settlement lying ^to the west  and  north  of "Lake  Teiniscami'ig be-  tang merely the eastern extremity    of  "'the great clay belt comprising about  fifteen' and a half millions of acres,  which, with a slight, break at tho  Height of Land, stretches across the  districts .of Nipissing and'Algoma  into the northeast portion - of' Thunder Bay.  Fine Fertile Soil.  , About  one-half,   of    the  1,500,000  acres  comprised . in   the Temiscaming  Valley has been surveyed and laid out'  in .townships.  The land, "which   rises  ' abruptly -from the lake shore'-'to*    a  .height of about 50 feet, slopes-'gradually toward  the Height     of . Land,  which is about .50 miles ,distant from  the  lake.  The soil is fully equal(   in  fertility  to that" of  any portion-    of  Southern  Ontario,   being a* rich  clay  with    a    surface' of black   'vegetable  mould. 'There  is very little rock   or  loos������ stone,     some     townships being  without stone , of 'any sort.   The settlement is well watered1 by a number  of streams    and  -rivers  flowing into  .Lake Temiscaming     from the  ��������� north  and northwest. This provides the settler with a ready    means  of marketing the timber     and   -cordwood    cut  from,    their     lands    ' in clearing,  for  "which good prices can be obtained on  delivery on the bank of the    nearest  favorable stream.  Crops mature very rapidly. Settlers  have in some cases taken up land in  May, made a small clearance and  harvested a crop the same year. Oats  sown in. June have been reaped in a  fully ripened condition in time to bo  exhibited at the Toronto Industrial  Exhibition on Sept. 20th. The dis-  ' trict is destined 'to become a great  stock-raising 'and dairying country,  as it 'possesses all the requisites for  the establishment of these important  branches of industry, more especially in the excellence of the pasturage  furnished by the luxuriant growth of  grass and natural vegetation, the  plentiful supply of pure- water and  the cheapness of land and building  material. t  Growth, of Population.  The present population of the district is estimated at about * 2,000,  and is rapidly increasing. The progress of settlement has been considerably'stimulated by the construction  of colonization roads by the Government, the sum of ������8,000 being , appropriated for that purpose in 1900  and a similar amount in 1901. There  are two, villages in thc district ���������  Thomloe', the larger of the two, is  situated at the head of navigation  on the Ontario side of the lake, and  Haileybury, also on the lake shore,  further to the south.  "Northward,  Ho !  A great deal of interest is being  taken in the land-seekers' excursion,  which has been arranged by the Provincial Government by way of thc C.  P. R. to Temiscaming station nnd  thence by. steamer to Thomloe and  Haileybury. The rates have been put  at a low figure and niany working-  men from Toronto and other places,  as well as large numbers from the  country, arc preparing to avail t.hcm-  .selves of the opportunity afforded of  seeing the country. The excursion  starts on the 2Sth, and the land-  seekers will have fifteen days, giving  ample : opportunity for a close inspection of the locality. Mr. Thomas  Southworth, "Director of Colonization, will accompany the excursion.  The result of the new departure in  promoting settlement in'Ontario will  be watched with interest. Many  have already gone in since the opening of navigation in order to have an  earlier  choice  of lots.  Here Are Some Good S__rs"es*tion������ For  the Amateur Nurse.  When a patient is not confined to the  bed, it may be well in a case of throat  trouble to' use cloths wrung from.^ hot  water, but under no consideration is it  safe to use water about a patient in bed,  notwithstanding the belief of many lathe efficacy of, hot water as a cure all,  writes a woman w;ho knows in Good  Housekeeping. ,  It is heat, not moisture, that quiets  pain! * Wet cloths retain heat only ,a brief  time, but they do something else. They  dampen the bedding and the .patient's  clothing, to his great danger.1* Often the  dampening produces serious cramps,  causing excruciating suffering, and those  in attendance, thinking the,cramps are a  part of the illness, keep up the wet cloth  treatment instead of hastening tor change  the wet clothing for dry. There have been '  cases where death soon follpwed, such  treatment.  , Nothing proves bettor'than a good'dry  heat to quiet pain, lim water bags and  bottles are excellent if perfectly tight.  Hot sand bags also aro good to place be- -  side the body and limbs. A relay of hot  plates wrapped in woolen cloth will, do  wonders in giving relief to a patient.   --  In any case of serious bowel trouble it  is well to follow up with relays of hot  plates, light 'weight earthen, or better  still, because of their lightness, are the  tin plates such as are used by bakers, being always careful they are as hot as can  be borne and not too hot and wrapped in  cloth.  This remedy -will allay inflammation  amd pain to a wonderful degree. It is  also excellent in'rheumatism of the hip,  knee or ankle. 'A frequent .change of hot  plates well wrapped in woolen and placed  beneath or over the suffering joint as the  -patient lies.in bed will bring great,relief. ,  Hot woolen'blankets greatly assist in  pulling a patient through' serious neuralgic pains. Another great; help in the sickroom is found in'the use>of wool cloths  smaller>than "blankets.' These are made  by cutting one or more thick wool blankets into four or six pieces each. Do not  flinch at cutting up a blanket. Consider  that the object is to get the; sick one restored to health. The price of a pair of  blankets would go but a'little way on a  doctor's bill, and these ,wool squares will  last for years for use in tthe sickroom.  They can be cleansed and put away from  moths between whiles.  Nothing is more handy. They can be  heated and tucked around the patient as"  desired,' being heated often enough to  keep up the necessary warmth. This  gives-mucli comfort and induces sleep.  Beware of * dampened ,beds and'clothes,  even in health. . , - ���������  A Misnomer.  "I don't see why they call that actor  Eottans 'a ham.'

'   VERDI'S FIRST LIBRETTIST.   '    ,  The   Singular   Life   of   Adventure   of  ,������������������> Temistocle Solero. <  'Verdi's first librettist, '^Temistocle Solero, had so' adventurous af life < that it  reads like a romance of Diimas.  He was in a military school in Vienna,  placed there through the direct influence  of the 'Austrian emperor, when, tired of  the confinement, he ran away and joined  a gypsy band, going with them into Hun-  gaiy. where he was eventually found by  the police. As he was being marched,off:  he met his brother, an officer in the Austrian army, who took him under his care,  putting him in a college in Milan. From  there he was graduated and made an  acquaintance with Verdi, poor and lonely  as himself, for whom he wrote the libret"-  tos of five operas.  He afterward went to Spain as director of the orchestra. One evening at the  theater, hearing an officer insult Queen  Isabella, who was present, he turned and  boxed his ears. Upon this ensued a  scene of confusion. The queen, hearing  of its cause, desired to see and speak  with her defender. Solero, a handsome  man of most prepossessing manners, soon  became first favorite and had all Spain  at his feet. One day he discovered a conspiracy against her majesty, led by Don  Francesco, her cousin. After that Solero's  life was no more safe, as several attempts were made to assassinate him, so  that even the queen advised him to return to Italy, which he did, after spending, everything he had. He settled in  Milan, earning a precarious living by  writing, but a true Boheme. gay and  starving. ' For a few months he" returned  to Spain and had his pockets well re-  lined with gold, but on the homeward  journey by sea a storm arose, and the  passengers escaped with only their lives,  so that he landed in Milan without a  penny.  Eighteen hundred and fifty-nine saw  him in Paris, confidential agent of Napoleon III, and on returning to the peninsula he was sent against ihe brigands,  whom he dispersed. In 1869 he was  found in Egypt organizing the police, but  his restless temperament again interfered, and it was not long before he was  again in Milan, speculating with the fortune which he had made. He now lost  everything and fell into extreme poverty.  From that moment the goddess of fortune deserted, him, And he died in 1878 in  Milan.  Irrepressible.

At Chatham ' dockyard, says  Lloyd's Weekly of recent date, II. M.  S. r Albemarle ��������� was successfully  launched. Lady Kennedy, wife of  the Commander-in-Chief at the Nore,  christened the vessel by breaking a  bottle of South . Australian  wine over' 'her bows.' Tho  service was conducted by the  Rev. W. Oxland, .garrison chaplain, and'the band of the ..Chatham  Division Royal Marines attended and  played' nautical selections. Thousands, of spectators witnessed thc  launch, which was carried out under the superintendence of Admiral.  Swinton Holland. The 'Albemarle's  launching weight,' -minus armour  plates, was 5,100 tons.  The first-class battleship, ' Montagu was launched -from' Dcvensport  dockyard, in the presence of 10,000  persons,- the vessel being christened  with a bottle ,of Uolonial*7wine presented by the Agent-general -for  South Australia. Upon Lady Chas.  Scott cutting.'the ropes , which held  the dogshores, the ship" hung'for a  moment owing to the grease- on the  ways  having  hardened   through,   the  cold  weather  p p **o    r 1*    l--\-r-*'-  but:, with   the -tisst.-L-  * II     I.t.   *���������>     ..r. i !   On   TliK    Si'lOCK-.  was sent off,, the launch being entirely successful.  v 'Both' the" foregoing rvcssclst have- a  displacement of 14,000 tons, are 405  feet in length, with a beam of T5  feet .6 inches, an indicated * horsepower of 18.000, and,are expected, to'  be capable' of a maximum speed of  19 knots. They will each carry a  crew of 762, including officers. The  heavy armaments of both vessels will'  comprise four 12-inch breech-loading  mark IX. guns, which will be mounted in shield-protected barbettes, thc  latter strengthened by a belting of  10-inch armour- plating. In addition, the Albemai-le and her sister  ship will each carry 12 6-inch quick-  firers, mounted in steel casemates.  ,10 12-pounders, six 3-pounders, eight  303 Maxims, and four 18-inch torpedo tubes*.  In the presence of several thousand people, the first-class armoured  cruiser Drake was successfully  launched from Pembroke dockyard by  Mrs. Phillips, of Lawrenny Castle,  Pembrokeshire. The Drake has been  built on the lines of the Terrible and  the Powerful, and if she comes ip to  the expectations of her" designers, she  should be one of the fastest cruisers  afloat. She is 530 feet in length,  with a beam of 71 feet 4 inches, and  is provided with a belt of 6-inch  broadside ��������� armour. The indicated  horsepower of her engines is set  down at 30,000. which should give  her a maximum speed of not less  than 23  knots.  The new first-class cruiser Kent  was successfully launched at Portsmouth, being named by Lady Tlot-  ham, wife of the Commander-in-  Chief at Portsmouth. There was a  large attendance of the public in  spite of very showery weather. The  vessel took . thc ...water -without, a  hitch, the sun shining brilliantly; as  the Kent quitted her birthplace. She  has been built from-the design of  Sir William White, Director of Naval  Construction, and is 463 feet 6.  inches in length, and 66 feet in  breadth, with a displacement of .9,-  800 tons. The vessel will be propelled by twin screw's; her engines .developing 11)000 horsepower. Her  tube boilers are , of the "Belleville  type. The side armour is four inches  thick, and the vessel has also a protected deck. She will be "fitted with  two barbettes, each carrying two 6-  ineh guns> and 10 other -6-inch, guns  will be carried in the casemates. Her  other armament will include eight  12-pounder quick-firing guns, besides  3-pounders and Maxims, and two  submerged torpedo tubes. 7 The  Kent's ram is a steel casting weighing over 13 tons. Her crew will consist of 678 officers  and men.  Yarmouth's Handy Mai*.

The.oake walk proper had its orltrii1  nniong the French negroes of Louisi  una more than si century ago, says th.-  New Orleans Times-Democrat. Thero  Js little doubt that it is an offshoot of  some of the old French country dances  It resembles several of them in form  From New Orleans it spread over the  entire south and thenceforth.. It was  found of convenience to the plantation  negroes. They were not wedded by license, and it was seldom that the services of a preacher were called in. At a  cake walk a man might legitimately  show his preference for a woman and  thus publicly claim heritor a wife.'  In,effect the cake walk was not*different from the old Scotch marriage  which required only public acknowledgment from the contracting parties.  So this festival became in some sense  a'wooing;, an acceptance or a rejection  and a ceremony. This explains its popularity with the blacks outside of its  beauties, with, the accompaniment of  music, which is competent at all times  to command negro support.  Cake walking has improved, as do  most things that are constantly practiced. It has lost its old significance  in the south. Negroes now get married  when they marry at all in the white  folks' fashion. It has become, however, a pantomime dance. Properly performed, it is a beautiful one. The cake,  is not much of a prize, though the negro has a sweet tooth.  At Peace "With the World.

'' Many travelers returning E'from'China  > ha ve' commented upon the apparentlj  singular' lack" of 'knowledge of; the dis-  tanc'es;acrbss their country or-between  their towns, that,existsamong the'Chinese. - If *at one town* you inquire the  distance.-to the next, you may "be. told  : that it is"20 li. (one-third of a mile), bul  upon arriving, at the town you will be  surprised to find the distance back to  the town from which ypu have jusl  come is 24 li and that .the cost of jour-  neying back again is correspondingly  greater than the cost to go to it.  The Chinese measure distance not.by  rule, but by the amount of physical energy required to> traverse them. Theii  wage is based on a unit of energy, the  amount that it takes them to carry a  given load, one picul one li, on level  ground. If the road from A to B is  down hill, tbe distance is regarded as  less than the actual linear distance because it is supposed jto take less energy  to travel in that direction, or, as the  Chinese say, "the li are short." It nat-  urally follows that in traveling in the  other direction, from B back to A, the  road, being a gradual ascent, a greatei  expenditure of energy is necessary,  "The 11 are long," and in order to get a  fair' compensation for their work "the  carriers must see that the distance and  the' charges are correspondingly increased. With this explanation whal  has often appeared as a vagary of the  Chinese becomes simple and reasonable.  When a man is confronted with a  lot of his old lovo letters in a breach  of promise suit he realizes that kiad  words can never die.  From the Progress, Lunenburg, N.S.  Capt.

Then    I'jwas    much  troubled with pains in the back'due  to' the kidney trouble." ^Finally I'took  a' severe-cold which not' only seemed  ,to \'iraggravate    'these ^troubles \ but'  which; seemed to ��������� affectVmy^ spine'".as'  well,, arid' I' became/partially-   rigid  in-ythe arms , and", legs. ���������.

It -is tsuch endorsations as those  that give Dr. " Williams' Pink Pills  their great popularity throughout ihe  world. Neighbors tell each other of  the benefits they have derived from  the use of these pills and where n  fair trial is given the results are  rarely disappointing.

Eight of her few  short years have been passed under  the saddest cloud possible in life.  At the age of > two the child met  with an accident which left her with  two ribs broken, ^ split off au the  backbone. Though they were set and  healed her little body v did, not  straighten. For eight years she  could hardly walk, being almost  doubled up. The accident allccted  her kidneys and Diabetes set in. Diabetes is a particularly dangerous  form of Kidney trouble, in this case  particularly severe by nature of the  injuries to the spine  The family doctor, was, of course,  consulted, lie diagnosed her case  correctly, but couldn't cure it. She  was sent to the Public Hospital at  St. John in the hopes that the  greater skill and facilities there  would ava'l. Thoy could do nothing  for her. The" authorities advised thc  mother to take the child homo to  nurse her and give her good care  while she lived, which would not be  very long.    ,  Thc suffering of the little ore was  heart-rending to the mother and  friends. She cried with pain night  and day. ' The .'mother grew desperate  and determined she would find a cure  for her child if it took every cent she  possessed.        ' \'.::      /    *  She saw Dodd's Kidney Pills advertised and immediately purchased  some. From the first they were beneficial. The little girl commenced to  get better. Every day saw ; an improvement. Dodd's Kidney Pills  were doing the work. Six boxes in  all were used and once .more .Diabetes' 'was conquered.  Not, only that but with the return  of health the spine commenced to  straighten. . The little girl is now  almost physically perfect. Says the  grateful mother in her own words: .  "There is nothing to be compared  to Dodd's Kidney Pills. We thank  God we oyer heard of them. , Edna is  now full, of color, runs and pla3rs  about as smart as" a whip, where  once she was a puny little thing as  pale as  a  ghost."  .-*"*;<*��������� I  ".'tf  HE   RAN   A   MILE  and so would  many a young  lady, rather than take a'bath  ' .   without the "Albert"  BABY'S OWN SOAP  It leaves the Fkin wonderfully soft  and fresh, and its laLnt fragrance ia extremely pleasing.

These samples    are    criticised    by    commercial  judges, paid by the government in such  'a-manner.that they have no idea from  what creamery the butter came.

A few of,the prolitable strawberries  of ten years ago are still cultivated,  yet a vast majority of the varieties  that one avould advise planting today  were entirely unknown ten, years ago.  Excelsior, ��������� Sample, Glen Mary of the  great market varieties, and Nich  Ohmer, Maxinrus and Mammoth, as  fancy amateur varieties, are all products of the past ten years and superior  in many ways to our older varieties.  Bight or ten years ago currants came  to be planted quite extensively in  many sections of our state, and while  there has been no hint of overproduction a considerable abandonment of  jelly making by families has brought  about less demand for currants, and  they have been steadily lowering in  price in our markets for' some years.  Fay and Victoria are the standard varieties. Wilder, a variety of more recent introduction, is a stronger and  more upright grower than the Fay,  full as large a berry and a more perfect bunch- somewhat lighter in .color  and later in ripening, which tends to  make it more valuable, both for home  use and market.  Red raspberries have suffered the  same depression as currants and aro  selling at 30 per cent lower prices and  are less in demand than they were ten  years ago, while the demand for blackcap raspberries seems to be somewhat  on the increase. .    ��������� .  Loudon and Columbian, red, and'  Kansas and Cumberland, blackcaps,  are the valuable. developments of the,  past ten years, and with the old relia:'  ble Cuthbert make up the best list of  raspberries for planting at the present  time.  Commercial blackberry growing has'  suffered severely from southern competition and is not as satisfactory or  profitable as formerly. The Eldorado  is the one valuable variety of recent introduction. ���������  The Lucretia dewberry has come into  prominence and favor during recent  years and with some planters is found  commercially favorable. ��������� J.

"Perhaps the remarkable surroundings had something to do with it,  for you must confess every element  of the romantif  was  present.  "And what do'you think she sang  ���������'Home, Sweet Home.'

P.ex bc-jan to '-calice that the mo-  ttive of his companion was a serious  'one. He had hardly let his eyes rest  ���������upon the features painted with the  skill of a genius upon thc ivory tablet than he gave utterance to an exclamation. Lord Bruno caught his  -arm.  "For  Cod's  sake   tell   me  quickly,"  'lie breatiled. <���������  "It    is    very,    very' similar,     and  'brings  back  vi\ idly  to   my  mind  the  picture   that   chauu'd     my    attention  -Ihere among  the African  hills.

'���������  Fie looked at the Englishman in a  thoughtful way, as though endeavoring to solve the riddle which had pre-  mani-ori    "'self.  Lord Bruno again fastened it to his  ���������chain.  "1'ou   will   be    surprised   my. boy,  -when  I  tell you this   miniature is    a,  ���������portrait   of  one who   was  very    dear  to  mc���������of my sainted,, mother,  taken  when  she   "was   a   charming  girl,   the  fairest in all the'country.     Yes, there  is a sad story back  of it all.       You  -shall  hear  it  in good  time,  but" this  is   no   place   to, uncover   the    family  -skeleton.'..   At least.you  know why I  am    determined  to   see   her   face     to  face and set at rest certain   suspicions  'that   have   arisen   of   late   to   disturb  ���������my   mind.

Until  then  withhold  your judgment I beg.     Now finish telling me what occurred  on  the   night  you.saw thc white god appear to the  Zambodi."  So Hastings went on.  "As she stood there upon the ledge,  ,she   suddenly   raised     her    Voice   and  sang,     Heavens!   such a voice. Bruno  ing blacks, 'eager to emulate the daring deeds of their ancestors, as pictured1 in the battle song. < ���������  "In the'midst of thc racket I looked up again and saw the fan* goddess  looking directly at the * spot where'  'the'.professor and nvyself  crouched.  'Trobably it was 'the . height of  recklessness, but I confess > I never  stopped , to consider that'��������� something* impelled me to half rise and  make a motion toward her.' , Whether  my action had, the effect of frightening her or not, she vanished , from  view, and 1 saw her no more; but I  am-.positive her gaze fell uponrme,  and that she knows white men were  in the neighborhood of the kraal.  "Who she is, and what strange fortune has caused her to be worshipped  by these savage1; barbarians ��������� these  are grave-questions that have been  upon'my. mind ever since, 'and even'  before I "met you, as I have sai'd,  my determination Was taken'^.to 'return' again to this strange land of  'the Zambodi, and at the risk of my,  life if need be, endeavor to gain an  interview with this charming goddess."  "I applaud your resolution, Eex,  and give'Vou my word 3*011. shall bo  well backed up in your undertaking.  We'll introduce a few American up-  to-date methods among these tribes  of the African 'wilds, 'and see what  the result mas* be. * "now tell me  what followed."  "Well, it's been hot enough ever  since. We managed to get away  from the vicinity of the kraal all  right, but fortune wearied of smiling and   began to  frown.  "Presently the unhappy discovery-  was made that but one man remained of all our band of helpers Then  we ran into a marauding regiment  of blacks and had to fight for it.  Each hour since that time has been  fraught with new anxieties, until it  seemed finally that the end had come.  You found us battling for our lives.  We fought in grim despair, resolved  to die hard, as every true descendant of Anglo-Saxon blood should  do. Further words are needless*,  since 3rou were on , the spot in person, and your 'good right hand had  a share  in clearing  the  field.  "Briefly, that is all. You will  admit that it was a singular fortune  that gave me a privilege that few  other (men of our race have enjoyed  ���������that of actually resting my eyes  upon the mystic worship of these  barbarian impis, and on the dazzling  face of their fair god."  "les, \ou have been indeed favored. From what you say, the girl  speaks English, since you heard her  sing  that grand  old song "  "Yes, yes, and even distinguished  the words. Her whole soul was in  them, and her pronunciation- as perfect as yours, or mine."  "Ah! there is the doctor beckoning.  Supper, is'ready. Come, we will eat.  It must refresh 'you after what has  ���������passed. Then we shall have to decide upon our plan of. action. Much  depends   upon  your   condition."  "I'm tough enough to stand it,  and the golden opportunity is too  good to be lost. You can count  upon mo as ;n favor of an immediate  advance upon tlie enemy."    :  Eex had no idea he was hungry until he started in. Their own meals  of late had been so meagre that this  put new vim into him. He brushed  aside unpleasant .memories of recent  experiences, and remembered only  his resolve to again see the white  girl whom these superstitious blacks  bad snf. above them as n.n idol. n.  god to worship; and who swayed  their minds with the magic of song.  When thej' had finished the meal,  Lord Bruno conferred' with Bludsoe,  who motioned to the doctor, after  which they walked out to relieve the  sentries.  These coming in a few minutes later, 1-ted Eric spoke a few words to  his  employer.  "Come  with   me.   Rex,"    said     the  " latter rising,   "Bludsoe  wants  us  up  yonder." *   '  Ascending the rise they reached the  ;spot where the athletic cowboy leaned against, the lone tree, and smoked  his  pijie.  "What's in the wind?" asked Bruno  as they drew iip beside thc statue.  Thereupon Bludsoe waved his hand  in a semicircle, with not a little of  the natural dramatic spirit found in  forceful, decisive characters untrammeled by'the false ''restrictions -of,society.  "Look yonder, and there and there  Those lights 3'ou see are signal hres  of;, these black heathen.

'Lord Bruno," was,the startling announcement he so calmly made.  THE JOY' OF COMING   HOME.  There's joy in sailing''outward.

' ,  A i'cw words casually ��������� dropped informed Kex that Bludsoe had been  one of that band of heroic souls who  accompanied ."Jameson over *the border  into   the  land   of  the*Boer  After that.hu could not rest content until the ranker had given him  a graphic description of the doctor'.-*,  ride, the fearful battle in which such  a- harvest of death was reaped, and  the final surrender, though 'Bludsoe  confessed he was not present when  t>is latter took place, having been  charged with a desperate mission bj  "Doctor Jmi," 'which he faithfully  executed.  Following this came .a brief but  exceeding 1*> .graphic acco.mt of the  attack on Buluwayo by Che impis of  the savage Matabelc  This town had previously been one  of the headquarters of thc renegade  Zulus, wrho, having broken away  from their parent stock, trck'ked far  .into the northward, subdued the  lUakalakas, and became a terror to  the count I**., but when reverses fell  upon them in 3 S94 with tiie defeat  of Kim1, T-obongulu, the capital had  to   be  delivered   o\ er   to   thc   British.

Buluwayo had been besieged, the  women and children, over a thousand  in all, were shut up in the great  wooden market-place,' while the men  defended  them.  Desperate   scenes   took   place, which,  must  go  dowiv to  posterity ;'in    the  history    of    that    era   during   which  South  Africa was. redeemed from   the  darkness   of  fetish  sway.

Example-.  1 4 r  Recent discussion of the fate 'of Emilio  Aguinaldo, captured while openly defying the authority'of the, United States,,  has aroused much interest as to'the former fate of such captives. In other years,  in "the good old times," there was not the'  least doubt as to their fate. Short shrift  was granted to* any one fighting against  an established government, and if he obtained the privilege of remaining imprisoned for the remainder of bis days the  boon was accounted t an ' extraordinary  manifestation of grace; ,'    '    ^ ' "  Nowadays all (that is changed. The  world seems to t have grown more merciful, and it seems that rebels, if they are,  captured instead of being killed in- battle,"  must be particularly' fortunate persons.  Almost all of the examples of this class  rwithin the past century havo obtained the  advantages qf a pleasant residence aud  support by their captors, with the certain-"  ty of pardon in the end.    '  , '  ' With this class of captives may be  placed iNapoleon' although-tho great Cor-  sican was not by any means a^rebel. /Had  he.riot died within six years after his surrender at a comparatively early age, there  is little doubt that he would have been released as soon, as'the possibility ,of, his  raising any disturbance' in Europe .had  passed.

Arabi was placed  on trial on a charge of high treason.   He  pleaded guilty and was sentenced, together with his staff, to banishment to the island of Cej-lon.   This was in 1882,,"and  Arabi was only about 42 years of age. He  has lived in Ceylon ever since, a welcome  guest at the houses of the British authorities on  the island.    He has  received  a  large allowance from the British government.   At 42 he was a savage.   At 60 he  is a venerable and gentle old man.  A few  months  apo he was  pardoned.   No one  even suggests  that  the   British government has lost anything  by  its humane  treatment of Arabi, and yet a century or  two ago the suggestion that rebels should  be maintained for 19 years at the expense  of the government capturing them would  huve been received with derisive scorn.  Surely, "the world do move." .;,'������������������;.7-,  A strong contrast to the British treatment of Arabi Pasha is furnished by the  manner in which Napoleon disposed of  Toussaint L'Ouvovture just about a century ago. L'Ouverture was the famous  negro slave, soldier, statesman and, according to most accounts, patriot,* who  founded the republic of Santo Domingo.  He at first took the oath of allegiance  to the French republic, and then, dissatisfied with French treatment of th'������*  island, he assumed control. After losing  many thousands of men the French subdued Toussaint, and he was treacherously seized and imprisoned. -His transfer to France and his'confinement in a  cold and dismal dungeon followed. He  suffered from lack of food and illness,  dying at the end of ten months' imprisonment of consumption and starvation.  France's most recent captive of tho  sort is Ranavalona, queen of Madagascar. The French have claimed this large  island for about two centuries, and when  the enterprising queen was detected in a  plot to overthrow French authority they  decided to send her into exile. She was  taken first to a little island, but this  proved ineffective to stop the spirit of  revolt. It was then decided to transport  Ranavalona to Algeria. A fine villa has  been given her for a residence, and she  has .a staff of servants a,nd an allowance  AV Bitter Disappointment After, "VVivit-  - *.
