'4xSxs><sx^<*xSxs>^  The  feast  went  off  capitally.-   Music,  singing, tho clinking of glasses and merry  discourse    were   mingled   together   in  a  joyous hubbub.    There was   not a  single  guest who, so long as he still had  posses-  ' sion of   his  tongue,   did  not call  down  blessings'on the head'of the master of the  house.   And he, too, was  in   an'excellent  humor, and his face   beamed,' though  he  drank far less wine than usual.     Evening  had now  fallen. ���������   The  heydukes  brought  in   large   candohibras,    the    clinking  of  glasses went on uninterruptedly     At that  .  "moment the rumbling of a carriage was  audible in the courtyard.  ���������   The fiscal had   returned  from  his iniu-  sJon���������but alone.  -Master .lock sank back dejectedly in his  chair when he learned from tho mouth of  tlie messenger that Abellino really could  not come, because' he was sick; but he had  sent what he promised, all the same���������a  birthday gift to his dear uncle, with the  hearty wish that ho might find his greatest joy therein.  It was as much as six strapping fellows  could do to bring  in   the  loug box which  coutaincd   the    birthday  gift,   and  they  hauled it on to tlie  table so that all   the  , guests might see it. ' '     ,  - The four ends of the box- were fastened  down by-strong iron clamps, and these  ,_hadto bo removed with tho aid of pinchers  ,���������" What could there be in this box? The  .guests laid their heads together about it.  but none of them could guess  ��������� "^Suddenly all,four clamps burst asunder,  'the four sides of "the box fell aside'In four  '���������different directions, and there on tlie table  ���������stood���������-a covered coffin!  A cry  of  indignation   resounded  from  ���������������very corner of the room.  . i A pretty present for a seventieth   birth-  -dayf A black colliu covered with a velvet  pall, at the head of it the ancient cscutch-  ���������eon of tho  Karpathy   family  and  on   the  side,   picked out with   large  silver  uails.  ���������the name���������J-o-h-n K-a-r-p-a-t-h-y.  ; Horror sealed every mouth, only a wall  >pf grief was audible���������a heavy, sobbing  x5ry,-like that of a wild beast stricken to  the heart It came from the lips of old  John Karpathy, who had thus boon so  cruelly derided. When lie beheld the  coffin, when he read his own name upon  it, he had leaped from his chair, stretched  out his arins, his face the while distorted  by a hideous grin, and those who watched  him beheld his'features gradually turning  a dreadful hue. It was plain,. from tho  trembling of his lips, that he wanted to  say something, but the only sound that  came from them was a long drawn out,  painful rattle. Then he raised his hands  to heaven and,: suddenly striking his foro-  head with his two fists, sank back into  his chair with wide open, staring eyes.  The blood froze in the veins of all who  saw the sight. For a few moments1 nobody stirred. But then a wild hubbub  arose among the guests, and while some  of them rushed toward the magnate and  helped to carry him to bed others went to  fetch, the doctors. The coHin had alread.-  been removed from the table.  The terrified army of guests was not  long in scattering in every direction  Late that night all the roads leading from  the castle of Karpathy were thronged with  coaches speeding onward at a gallop. -Terror audhopo were the only guests left behind in the custie itself. But the rockets  still continued to mount aloft from tne  blazing fireworks and write the name  '��������� Karpathy" in tho  sky   in   gigantic fiery  letters visible from afar.  Now, what was more natural than that  the mob of breathless, departing guests  should lose no time in presenting their  respects and paying their court to the heir  presumptive of the vast possessions of the  Karpathy family, his honor Abellino Karpathy?  They had all seen .John   Karpathy  sink  back in his chair,   stricken   by  apoplexy.  He had not died on the spot, it is true, yet  he was as. good as dead, anyhow, and there  were   many   ,who  carried  their  friendly  sympathy with his highly respected nephew so far as to urge  him   vehemently  to  hasten at once���������yes,   that   very   night���������to  Karpatfalva,   take  possession and seal up  everything, to prevent  any  surreptitious  filching of his property.    But tho young'  squire was suspicious of   all  premature  rumors  and  resolved  to   bide   his  time,  await more reliable information and only  put in an appearance on receiving news of  tho funeral.  Early next morning the dean  arrived to greet him.    The very reverend  gentleman had remained behind  at   Karpatfalva last ofall, in order to niako  sure  that Master .Jock really  signed  the  codicil in favor of tho college in which he was  Interested,    lie brought  the  melancholy  intelligence that the  old   gentleman   had  not indeed actually   given   up  the ��������� ghost,  but was certainly very near the last gasp,  inasmuch as if. was now quite  impossible  to exchange a reasonable word with him.  which signified  that  tho  dean ,had   been  unable to get him to subscribe the codicil  The dean was followed the same day by  a number of agents and stewards attached  to  the  Karpathy domains, who   hastened  to  introduce themselves to his excollencj',  the heir and  their   future   patron     They  brought ,still  further  particulars  of . the  bodily condition  of  the  expiring head of  the  family     A. village  barber  had   bled  him. whereupon he had   somewhat> recovered his senses     They had then  proposed  to send for a doctor, but he had threatened  to shoot the man down, if  ho crossed his  threshold      The   barber   was  to  remain  t> i;vevcr   He had more confidence iij. him.  he said, because he would not darn to kill  him. lie would tako no mcdicii:o. nor  would he see a soul, and Mike Ki?i was  the only person who had admittance to  his room. But ho could not possibly last  longer than early tomorrow morning: of  that they were all quite certain.  Abelln.no regarded the appearance of tho  agents Mid stewards as of very good augury. .It showed that they already regarded him as their master, to whom homage  was justly due. On the following ' day a  whole host of managers, cashiers, scribes,  shepherds, tenants and other small fry  arrived to recommend themselves to Abel-  lino's favor. The moments of their old  master, they said, were most assuredly  numbered. None of *hpm could promts������  him so much as another day of life.  On the third day .the heydukes ami  doorkeepers also migrated over in a body  to Abellino, who began to be exasperated  at so much flattery.     So he spoke to them  don't you doff it. sirrah?    Who  sent this  letter?'"  At the first question Martin only shrugged hisVaoulders. In answer to the second he replied that the steward of the estate had given it to him.  The bailiff broke open the letter, and  green wheels danced before his eyes as ho  peered into it. The letter, which was in  old John Karpathy's own handwriting,  begged to inform the bailiffs, heydukes  and domestics assembled round Abellino  that he had so far recovered as to be able  to rise from his bed and write them a  letter, and that ho was very glad to hear  that they had found so much better a  master than himself, for which reason  he advised them to remain where they  were, for on no account were they to think  of. coming back to him  The bailiff pulled tho sort of face a man  would naturally havo who was compelled  to make merry on a diet of crab apples,  and as he had no desire to keep the joy Jul  intelligence all to himself ho passed tho  letter on from hand to hand among hi3  colleagues, the other bailiffs, factors,  doorkeepers, shepherds, scribes and heydukes till it had jjono the round of them  all. Under simil.-ii* circumstances men  often find a'great eoiuolario'i in twirling  their mustaches, but. now, alas, rhere was  not a single mustache to twirl among the  lot of them ! They had neither places nor  mustaches left Some of them scratched  their heads, some hurst into tears, others  cursed and swore In th'_ir first fury they  knew not which to turn upon first.���������Abellino for not inheriting or Master Jock for  not dying as lie ought to have dune.

Tho  stewards and factors obeyed incontinently.  Only one or two of the heydukes refused  to make themselves hideous, but when he  began to promise the lower servants four  imperial ducats a head if they did their  duty, they also proceeded to snip off what  they had hitherto most carefully cherished  for years and years  On the fourth day, of. all 'his good  friends, officials, domestics and buffoons,  Mike Kis, Martin, the former Whitsun  king; Master Varga, tho estate agent;  Palko, the old heyduke; and Vidra, t:ho  gypsy, were the only persons who ������������������.remained with John Karpathy as he stood ;:5  death's ferry. Even the poet Gyarl'a had  deserted him and hastened to congratulate-  the new patron.  On the fifth day there was nobody to  bring away tidings from Karpathy castle.  Perchance they were already engaged in  burying the unfortunate wretch.  On the sixth day, however, a horseman  galloped into Abcllino's courtyard, whom  they immediately recognized as Martin.  As he dismounted from his horse tha  steward of the Pukkancs estate, one of  the' first deserters, looked dowh from tho  tower and, smilingly broadly, cried out  to, him:  "Well, so you have come, too, eh, Martin, my son? What news from Karpatfalva?"      ,    ' .      c  He had come, of course, to. invite tho  gentlemen to the funeral. That was the  most natural supposition.  "I have brought a letter to you, Mr.  Bailiff," said Martin nonchalantly, and,  to the great disgust of the steward, he did  not even doll' his cap before Abellino. who  was standing on tho balcony.

Whatever   may  have been the.caso   in   old times,   or  What may now he the case in other climates, certain it is that sloth and laziness is not one of  the prevailing  vices  of Anglo-Saxon civilization, in the centre of   the North American continent.  In this   country the danger' seems  all  the other way, and   that men and women will go at   their work so  energetically and stick to it, so  persistently as  not to give themselves a chance to live.  This is particularly true of the summer  and fall which for tba farmers of Manitoba aud " the west is a busy and  rushing time. -  Between   the time however  of putting in   the last seed and  taking  off  the   first   thing ready  to  harvest  there, is a   breathing'spell   of  two or  three weeks duration, and  fortunately,  so far as Manitoba is concerned, this is  at tbe time when there is usually,ideal  weather for holding , a , great outdoor  exhibition like the Winnipeg Fair. . In  other provinces there may be sufficient  breathing  spell  after   barvest, but  in  .Manitoba, the .harvest  and   threshing  whiclvfollows hard   upon it  fill  in'all  the tinie till the season of wet days and  cold nights'.    The timehas been selected then because it is  the,  right  time,  and the success which has attended the  Winnipeg Fair, shows,  that   it  is - the  season when the people of   Manitoba  want and will take a ��������� little relaxation.  The people of  Manitoba then, with  no,  ghosts of unfinished or   neglected work  to  worry them, come down  to spend a  day. three   days, a week   at the fair,  and  to   thoroughly enjoy   themselves.  It is   a   provincial   gathering   of  the  clans, everybody meets everybody else,  and   whether   they   be   interested' in  stock-raising, fine   arts, poultry,   pigs,,  ladies? work,  horse  flesh or business,  they can get more   in ' this week  than  any other six weeks ��������� in the year.    The  big fair,-like" a   great   college,   offers  optional courses to all its students, and  anyone v^ho-objects  to  or who has  no  interest in any one department can find  plenty to occupy bis  attention  in  the  others.

By its  gradual and judicious use the frailest systems   are   led   into    couvalescence    and  strength by the influence which   Quinine  exerts on Nature's  own   restoratives.   It  relieves the drooping spirits of those with  whom a chronic state of morbid despondency and lack of interest in life  is a  disease, and, by   ti-anquilizing.  the   nerves,  disposes to sound and   refreshing  sleep-  imparts vigor to the action of the   blood,  which, being stimulated, courses throughout the veins, strengthening*the   healthy  animal functions of the   system,   thereby  making    activity    a    necessary    result,  strengthening the frame, and giving   life  to the digestive organs,   which   Datarally  demand increased^substance���������result,   improved appetite. ISTorthrop and Lyman, of  Toronto, have given to   the   public  their  superior Quinine Wine at the usual   rate,  and, gauged by the opinion of  scientists,  this wine  approaches   nearest   perfection  of any in the market.

Y. .Z.,  ,_raws attention to ������ome foots which  -.seem to us not to have been hitherto  !b������ough.t" forward ,in ,the Chinese  iques'tipn. There aro a few other  patient points in this connection  which might also, we think, merit  consideration:  (1.) Comox coal enters into competition not only with 1 he productions .of local mines   (where condit-  fans however  unequal as  regards  o-._a������iHty -of getting *at the coal, are  '. lioii pretty "much the same footing as  "regards cost of labor, etc.,) but,, also  .    Iqri&h -Australian and   English coal  in the chief market, San Francisco.  Every one knows   that the cost of  producing  English   or  Australian  coal is very much less that the cost  ��������� .of   producing   Comox   Coal.    For"  ':   wages in England   average, say 03.  .    and i;ri Australia '6s a day. - In the  latter country, ialso, the coal is easily  ";' mined.    It is patent to every think-  " .-ing person that if the owners wish to  make local   mines pay,, they .must  ���������keep expenses  down.    If they had  - hot'to "compete with for-o'i_p.  coal,  ���������'  ���������^s'aboy.e  stated, they could  raise  '   'stliS ina-rket price.    But thai is  not  possible.     At best Comox mines do  -notpay more than 3 or 4 per  cent,  ���������on' capital  invested.     No one will  hold that  an  exorbitant interest.  No  person  with common  sense  will .continue  a business that does  ���������pay.    The mines must pay or shut  ,down, which alternative is  preferable to all concerned?  (���������2.) Chinese .underground do not  compete with  miners.    They compete only with laborers. If they mine  .    iheir .pay is the- same  as  tpat   of  white miners.  (3) Chinese xindei ground work under the supervision of white men. If  ^the while men exercise proper care,  there is no.danger from the presence  : ; ,of Qhinese.'  (4.) Chinese compete with white  JabW in many other branches of in-',  ���������jclustry.in the province.  ��������� If oal miners have.'a moral  fight to prevent their compel ing with  white men in that work, why have  ���������not workingmen in other industries  :a right to the same privilege? After all, w,e must, take a fair view of  |he case.  -(5.) ;Che  section 0i the  English  ''''"%&ty person who, 'from physical  .or r_gntaf incapacity, is, o r may'  pecobie, a source of danger to other  persons .employed in the mine etc."  refers'.to idiols and cripples���������not to  persons who cannot read and  write.",  (.6.) The new Special Rule lately  promulgated enact that: "No person who has not benn employed be  ���������fore the 9th August, 1899 shall be  employed or work underground unless- he is able to satisfy the Inspector that he can read and understand  ihe' meaning o'f the Special Rules  ate pri'nJte.d in theEnglishlaiiguage."  If lhairule had bccKsnfon ed in Eng  land a few years ago, how many  miners would have been albe to  meet its requirements? But never-'  the-less, we have ney-er heard that  their inability to read and wrise  was a source of danger in the mines.  (7.) In reference to the' competition v/ith cheap Australian coal  it may be said that tbe freight on  Comox coal to San Francisco isa-  bout $2.50 per ton. Australian and  English coal, especially the former,  pays practically, no freight at all  for this reason:���������The ships that  carry coal from Australia mostly  come to San Francisco for grain,  They would generally have to come  up in ballast, which would cost  something to load and unload and  would bring in nothing. Therefore  the owners buy a cargo of coal cheap  at the mines and sell it in San Fran-'  cisco, so that instead of paying out  money for ballasting, they make a  a profit on their cargo.  (8.) Is it not -better for a smaller  number of white men to make good  wages than for a large number to  earn only a bare living?  (9) There are about 10,000 Chinese in this province. Perhaps 250  (at the outside) would ba in the-  ���������rnines. That is 1 in 40. Is the employment of such a small percentage  likely-'to "overflow the country with  Mongolians" as the B. C. yellow  journals pretend?  (10.) Is it not evident that the  rabid Government supporters in  this province enlarge upon the objections to the Chinese and pass over important considerations oh the  other side of the question? There  is no reason why they should do  this except to catch the labor vote;  some of them do so, incidentally, to  injure their business rivals.  (11.) If the good people of Nanaimo and the N. V. C. Co. have  the exclusion uf Chinaman so much  at heart, why does that Company  employ Chinese at all? It certainly casts a doubt on their sinerity.  It is within the memory of man  that the N. V. C. Co. farmed with *  cheap Chinese labor and sold potatoes at 50 cts. a sack in Nanaimo,  thus spoiling tho market for local  farmers. Plow would the -Comox  farmers and gardeners like to see  the long,swamp. for instance, farmed on the same principle? And  who could Ktop the the U. C. Co.  from doing so if they wished ? Yet  we do not hold them to be such  philanthropists as their exalted  neighbors of the Black Diamond  City.  In bringing forward these considerations, we do not wish to be  understood as either for or against  the Chinese. Our aim is simply  that all the facts should be brought  to light. It is -unfair to this town  and district, which depend for their  prosperity on the success of Union  Mines, to allow the prejudiced press  cf a rival town to spread broadcast  one sided arguments and yituper-  ative charges against the owners of  these seines without raiding a voice  for fair play. Th:e News is run in  the interests of this district and it  will defend those interests, as far as  lies in its humble .power, regardless  of tlie anathemas of prejudiced  journals or the hole-and-corner  whispers of oilicious  travelling   ex-  amiaers.    We all make   our living'  . :'*'  this town   and we   should   all  Surely it ought to be plain to  our citizens why a section of the  outside province should try to mako  trouble up here. Before we get b r  to the trap, would it not be web 10  consider how we shall get out;:.!' i_?   O ;   ���������  The persecution of Drey m:'* is a  travesty on justice. Il is ri.-n.ark  able, indeed, that a people as generous as the French will treat so'unfairly a man concerning whose  guilt there are so many doubts. It  is more evident every day that  France is governed not by the patriotic and chivalrous sons of'that  land once the pride of the world,  but by the veriest scoundrels any  nation could gather. Franoe is .a republic, under which, is supposed to  be demonstrated government for  the people, and by the people. It  shows exactly what will become of  any state where the bulk of citizens-  cease to take active part in public  affairs and leave designing politic-,  ians to guide the destinies of a nation.  For, it is well known that the common people of France' take no interest whatever in politics.  '" Cumberland presents the some-  what curious spectacle of an incorporated town without a mayor.  If the property qualification were  reduced to a reasonable point, many  men otherwise well qualified for the  position would have-ah opportunity  for contesting. A thousand dollars  worth (at least) of real .property is  atogether too high a financial -qualification for the mayor of a -small  town. <   '  It would 'be iniere 'ting' to the  public to know why a Government  which pretends to take such interest  in the exclusion of Chinese allows a  .contractor to employ Chinese on the  Nanaimo���������Cumberland road. If  that sort of thing is not discriminating against white labor, we would  like to know what is?  in  ytand  town.  ���������up  and. we  for  the -.welfare of  ���������pur  NOVA SCOTIA NOTES.  There is a scarcity of men at  nearly all the Cape Breton mines.  The heaviness of the work'in some  cases and the smallness of pay in  others, likely account for this scarcity.  Shipments of coal from the Cape  Breton colliery at New Cambellton  j have been veiy extensive this summer. Almost every week two or  three schooners load there for dif-  terent ports.  About 200 men are employed in  clearing the site for the furnaces  near tho International Pier. Sydney Iron Works (are booming.  Themining record learns there is  a rumor to the effect that the N. S.  Steel Co., tried to make an arrangement with the G. M. A. for a supply of coal in event of coke ovens  being built at North Sydney. It is  believed to be true that the Steet  ���������Company are anxious to secure a  good coal property on the north side  of Sydney Harbor.  The Hussey Mine in Broad Cove  C. B. has been closed for the present  owing to a disagrement between  the American and Swiss members  of the Company. Each is trying to  sell out, but cannot reach satis-  tactory arrangements.

Of course I am hardly  in a position to give tho details of my  aerial flight, but my companion's account, as he related it, when 1 recovered  from my dazed condition and after searching carefully to make sure that the snake's  fangs had not penetrated my gaiter and  the thick breeches beneath, is as follows:  Seeing me regain the terrace after safely  passing along the broken ledges, he had  picked up the camera, with the object of  sna.p shooting me, and was moving about  to get a clear view through the trees when  1 called to him to "look at the snake."  For fully five minutes 1 stood perfectly  still, at intervals calling out, "Snake,  snake!" until suddenly' 1 sprang backward off'the cliff. For 50 feet I fell sheer,  and, my spring having carried me clear  of the rock, 1 landed in a sitting posture  upon the,top of a tall mountain ash tree,  crashed through the small branches and  so reached the ground.  After resting and smoking for half an  hour 1 felt entirely recovered and determined to revisit the terrace, in the hope  of finding tho snako and ,paying off old  scores.     ��������� '  Arriving at the rocky platform, I armed  myself with a stout stick and had barely  covered half tho terrace when I caught  sight of my black acquaintance sunning  himself at full length on the very verge of  thu precipice-  He came straight at me, with head  erect, swollen neck and hissing like a  fiend. That sort of thing I could understand, so I cut hi in down, gave him one  across the back that broke his spine and  thou administered a dose of his own medicine by inserting the end of my stick  among the writhing coils aud tossing him  over the cliff.  from that time forward boomed. Men  who would ordinarily sit quietly  through an entertainment and behave  themselves allowed themselves to be influenced by the contagion.���������Louisvilla  Courier-Journal  TIioko Jlodest JajJiJiieMe!

In the early part of this century there  lived in Nantucket a young Quakeress  whose wit caused- many a ripple in the  demure circle of the Friends.  When this pretty Martha attended  yearly meeting in Newport at the age  of 18, her youthful spirits brought her  occasional grave looks from the elders,  although her real goodness of heart'was  never questioned.  One evening, during the session of  yearly meeting, Martha was the center  of a group of young people gathered  near the windows of the parlor in tbe  boarding vhouse .where some cf the  Friends lodged for the time. The j'oung  people were playing the simple and  amusing game of "humorous definitions." Martha's wit caused such frequent laughter that a solemn faced person rose from his seat at the other end  of the room'and asked, in a loud, stern  voice  "Martha; can thee give me the definition of gravity?"  The pretty Quakeress colored at this  public and unnecessary rebuke, fcnt  after scarcely perceptiblo hesitation,  she answered demurely.  "I am not able to give thee a definition of my own. Friend Brown, but  perhaps that of De la Rochefoucauld  will suit thee. He says that 'gravity is  a mysterious carriage of the body, invented to cover the defects of the-  mind.'

H. R.

Artemus accepted the invitation, and  while the great audience impatiently  but with much amusement awaited the  reappearance of the humorist the latter was making the acquaintance of  Amai), a well known restaurant keeper  at that time, and luxuriating at a well  laden refreshment board.

The conditions surrounding the  market have not   changed except  that  the news fr6m Russia and Roumanla is  much  worse than heretofore and all of  the crops of these countries will show a  very  considerable  reduction   as   compared  with ' last   year.     The   winter  wheat crop of the United States is now  being harvested and the  yield  is turning, out about   as expected.    The governments figure" sindicate a total crop of  winter and spring wheat of about 180,-  000,000 bus. less than that of last year  and as this estimate is based upon yery  promising.spring wheat conditions,   it  is, of   course,   liable to be cut  down  considerably   should anything occur to  injure the prospect.   Prices do not- look  high in view of.the moderate crop promise and any change should be in the  direction of better values.   The following review of the foreign   crop   situation, issued today at Washington, is as  complete and reliable as any   that can  be obtained :    The worlds crop  is estimated by some authorities at 2,504,000-  000 t bus. as against 2,748,000,000 bus.  in 1S9S,', a   reduction  of  244,000,000  bus.    Other   estimates place th������ shortage, at,352,000,000 bus.    The  Russian  crop cannot be a good one and may not  exceed that of   1897   which  was  only  255,0u0,000   bus.    Germany   has  had  imnrv'ed  weather   of- late.    Australia  promises   an average wheat crop  with  rye and   oats   short.    The  Hungarian  prospect   is for 140,000,000 bus., compared with 124,000,000 bus.    in    1898.  Severe ,   drought     has     prevailed   in  Rouniama and the wheat crop does not  promise over  thirty  perent of an average.     Reports from   Bulgaria .are  not  good,    Italy   sends   favorable  reports,  Spains   are   improved,     although   the  crop will not be as ��������� large as last y^ars.  The French area is about the   same   as  in JS98, but the   condition   is   5   per  cent lower, promising a crop 20,000,000  bus. less   than   last  year.    The  India  crop  is   considerably   smaller than in  189S.   The outlook in Australia is very  fuvoriible! ���������  J. D. O'BRIEN.  Winnipp-. .Tune In, 1S99.  WiXKlI'liiti-   INDUSTRLAX.

Mr. Isadore Major, Valleyfield, Que., writes: "After 20 years of suffering from backache and kidney disease I owe my life to Dr. A. W. Chase. I had tried an endless variety of remedies to no avail, and on the recom-  raendation of a friend began the use of Dr. A. W. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. Two pills that night and two the  -next morning gave great relief, and I continued their use till now I am completely cured. My friends are surprised  .and pleased to see me well again, for I had spent hundreds of dollars in vain trying to get cured. Before using  ���������Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills my back ached so I could not put on my shoes and could not lift twenty ponnds.  My shoulders were so sore I had headaches and a bad taste in my mouth. These troubles are now entirely gone,  and what I say I am ready to prove. I have told my friends of my wonderful cure, and many have been greatly  benefited by using these pills."  It is such wonderful cures as this that have given Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills claim to the title of "the  world's greatest kidney cure."    25 cents a box at all dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Co., Toronto.  The list of attractions this year is a  very leug one, and iu-every case' it is  new and different from last year.  Among these attractions may be noted  the Virginia State Colored Band. This  is a negro organization which not only  comprizes a fine brass baud of twenty-  five pieces, but also produces a nuthber  of special features such as cake walks,  plantation scenes, cooii dances, pican-  uiny songs, etc. This aggregation is  highly spoken of wherever it has appeared as a great mirth provoker.  Cottons Donkey Circus is said to be  one of the finest things iu its line and  something entirely new. The comical  and absurd situations which can be produced by the. scientific use of several  donkeys, men and boys are more than  can be imagined. This feature proves  a great relaxatirn for old and young.  There will be the Imperial troupe of  Japanese jugglers. This troupe came  over to attend the Omaha Exposition,  and they are the princes of the art of  balancing and juggling which has been  cultivated to such a high pitch by this  clever nation. Diana, Queen of the  Light, is another attraction. This is  a serpentine dance similar to that  which made  Loie Fuller  famous.  This year Prof. Herbert.._ will appear  with one of the greatest troupes of  trained dogs ever seen, This troupe  includes Dink, the famous diving dog,  which dives from a fifty foot ladder  into a tank of water.  Prof. Hand will, as in previous fairs,  provide the fireworks. These this  year will be.largely of the nature of  the latest mechanical devices as fiery  serpents, set pieces, stars, and a variety or beautiful rockets, shooting stars,  showers, golden laid, wheat sheaves,  etc., that have made this great pjrrotech-  nic artist, famous all over the Dominion.  The last to he named in this list is  a balloon ascension and parachute drop  under somewhat novel conditions. A  female aeronaut will go up in a balloon seated on an ordinary bicycle, and  when many hundred feet in the air she  will release the parachute and drop to  the ground and ride back to the place  of ascent on her bicycle. ���������'���������  Midway & Champion  BANKERS   AND   BROKERS  362  MAIN  ST., WINNIPEG.

One of his feats was  to piay on 15 different toned drums at  the same time in so soft and harmonious a manner that instead,of the deafening uproar that might have been expected the effect was that of a novel  and complete instrument. In playing  he passed from one drum to the other  with such wonderful quickness that the  eyes of the spectators could hardly follow the movement of his hands and  body.
