Somo shrewd people think they "have  unraveled a mystery of tho war. Tho mystery has to do with the disappearance from  the high seas of tho good ship Ravenna,  one of the regular liners of an English  Ease India comijany.  Just as the war broke out-we had bought  from  a  South  American  government a  ^s=ua������������.  - -ii-wsL:���������  "gs^  ���������~=>  THE STEItN OF THE SCIPIO.  cruiser which had  just been completed at  a British shipyard.    This cruiser was affc-  ' erward christened the-New Orleans.    Bo-  - ing  English  built, sho  was  armed with  English guns, whiuh required English am-  .  munition, including smokeless powdor. It  was given out at' tho time that it was'too  badj'that tho neutrality laws prevented us  from  buying in England tho needed ammunition. ���������  Then tho Ravenna sailed,  notion her  usual course, but to Antwerp, where/according to tho manifest, she took on ballast.    It was nicely boxed  ballast, which  was carefully handled.    Then tho Raven ���������  * sa sailed  out  to sea and  since  then, although it was months ago, has never been  reported. But if the Ravenna disappeared  another ship came as  mysteriously  into  existence.    She was found  by a  United  States scout boat somo 200 miles off Sandy  Hook, and, strange  to  relate,  there was  .not a soul on board.   Sho was in line condition; too, and in her hold was a nicely  ��������� boxed cargo.   On hor stern was painted in  white letters, somewhat unskillfully, tho  namo.;, Scipio.    Tho scout boat took hor in  , tow and left her at tho Brooklyn navy  yard.    There is splendid system in our  navy yards, so tho ballast was taken out  .'with exceeding care and stored away.- Had  .persons of  an unduly inquiring  turn of  mind been thero at tho timo they might  havo wondered why ballast should be conveyed to tho arsenal, of all places, and  there locked up so carefully as this ballast  was.   But, then, there was nobody "around  with an unduly inquiring turn of mind,  and of course thero was no possible connection between tho picking up of a derelict, the arrival of a collier and tho sudden  abundance of ammunition for the English  guns on tho cruiser New Orleans���������the only  American warship, by tho way, which used  smokeless powder in the war.  As tho Ravenna disappeared, as the  derelict disappeared, so, immediately after  being unloaded, tho Scipio disappeared,  but tho navy yard has been open to tho  public again lately, and persons of an inquiring turn of mind found tho Scipio.  ,-Sho was lying snugly in an inlet near tho  "Boneyard," whore tho old and useless  ships of tho navyniplder ingloriously, and  under tho white lettors that spell Scipio  on her thero are, faintly distinguishable,  other letters.- They spell another namo.  And that namo is Ravenna.  A BOLD CAMPAIGNER.  "Major   Mnrchand,   "Who   Is    Causing  Enpland Trouble In Africa.  Major M. B. J. Marchand, tho French  army officer whoso reported presenco at  Fashoda, on tho "Whito Nilo, has rudoly disturbed tho  British dream of an imperial  i  MAJOR M. B. J. MARCnAXD.  African province stretching from Alexandria to Capo Town, is a fiery, energetic  soldier who will very likely resent any interference with his plans. Threo years  ago he was merely captain of marines, but  in 1S9G he laid boforo tho French war de-  partment his schenio for an African campaign, and not only was it adopted, but  ho was given a major's commission and  put in chargo of the enterprise.  It was a bold and audacious plan, this  dash into the heart of tho dark continent,  and it was extremely doubtful if he would  succeed, as he took with him but a fow  hundred Senegalese His men aro loyal  blacks, however, and skillful sharpshooters. Fashoda was tho destination which  two years ago ho picked out, and at Fashoda ho is, according to recent reports.  In his 8,000 milo march to tho upper  valloy of tho Nilo Major Marchand loft a  trail of blood such ns other African mili  tary expeditions havo done before." Unable to transport his 8,000 loads of,supplies to Brazzaville, he, burned every village on tho road, killed several hundred  natives and took their live stockfor food.  At daylight the inhabitants of avillago  would bo awakened by tho blast of a.  trumpet, and they would issue from their  ,huts to be shot down. That was tho last  heard of Marchand on tho west coast.  From time" to time there wero, reports'  that "Marchand's expedition had been  wiped out, and as nothing definite has  been heard from him sometimes these were,  believed. But now3 travels slowly from  the heart of Africa, and so Major Marchand's appearance at Fashoda is hardly a  TIP THE WAITER OR STARVE.  Thin lo Wit nt  Yon  May  Sow  Expect  lit All Blf? Cltlew.   .  Waiters in most big cities havo formed  leagues similar to that which has existed  in Now York for years for tho punishment  of "miffs."' A miff .is a person, male  or' female, who does not tip tho waiter.  A reporter recently wisnt to a modest eating ,houso and bar -where' a dozen mon  were grouped about a tablo. The.men, it  seemed, wero waiters out of a job, and tho  placo was one of several rendezvouses of the  craft. They wero conversing, and ever and  anon the talk roturncd to miffs���������for in-  Btimce:  "Dat's a pretty good, placo, but dcre's  too many dom miffs. You work for nut-  tin dure." ��������� ' '  ' "So I fixed it all up nice and run back  about 20 times, and the dirtyold miff never gimmo a cent." f(.  < "No use talkin, Emile, you can't make  _ wages with all thorn miffs in town." -  By keeping his ear's open the reporter  picked up a largo sharo of highly esoterio  information.  When, through principle, economy or  for any other reason, the diner at restaurants fails steadily to tip tho waiter,,  things aro apt to happen. Dishes that  ought to be cold como to him sizzline and  those that should be hot aro as chill as  charity. If he orders eggs, he will probably get tripe, and when he calls for soup  tho waiter accidentally brings him pie.  Naturally he gets mad and kicks. Then  the waiter apologizes, declares it was all a  mistako and dreamily spills gravy down  his back.- '  Tho effect of this.courso of discipline le  usually to confirm the miff in his perversity. He grasps the situation and determines grimly that ho won't bo bulldozed into paying tribute. He will complain, b'jovo, and he proceeds to interview,  the manager.  That dignitary looks troubled. Ho has  been there before. He knows the miff is  being disciplined, but by such subtleties  that it is difficult, as the saying goes, to"  put one's finger on them. It is hard to  draw the line between accident and malice  prepense. Moreover, the waiter is, as  likely ae not,_a good oho othcrwiso and a  favorite with many patrons who are not  miffs. So ho' scratches his ear and saya  that he will sec about it.  Driven desperate by famine, tho miff  probably seeks another restaurant, but  the move is futilo.   His evil fame has pre-  GETTING EVEN WITH A MIFF.  ceded him, and, little as he dreams it, he  has long worn the brand of miff dom. His  victims have pointed him out to tho fraternity ; ho is known and marked for do:  struction. Consequently the mishaps that  have dogged him arc merely continued on  an aggravated scale. If he is a man of  iron constitution, he prolongs the struggle indefinitely, an embittered wanderer  from house to house, seeking vainly to  elude his Nemesis; othcrwiso he reforms.  In New York the more abandoned miffs  onco organized an antitipping league  They wore encouraged and headed by William Dean Howolls, the novelist, who  went to tho length of writing several essays in which he intimated that tipping  was sapping tho vitals of tho ropublicand  undermining its institutions. It is a significant fact that in his next novel, "A  Hazard on New Fortunes," Mr. Howolls  wont out of his way to complain that ono  could get nothing to eat in New York.  Tho waiters of that city have three old established clubs and it is said that the  walls of these resorts aro adorned with  portraits of tho officers of the league bearing inscriptions that would not gratify  their families. It is also claimed that photographs of tho more notorious miffs aro  kept in albums and inspected by new arrivals.  Would Cultivate It.  "They say that blushing is a disease,"  she suggested.

For Years This Trouble Baffled Physi'ians'  Skill���������Now Understood and Easily Cured  ��������� The Result of Scientific Research. -  From the Advance, Kemptville, Ont.  There is a ' popular idea that rheumatism is caused by exposure to cold;  and that some localities aro infected  with it more than others. Scientists  say that such conditions frequently  promote disease, but from the fact ihat  this ailment runs in certain families, it  is shown to be hereditary, and conse-  queiity a, disease of tho blood.  Frequently an individual in whose  family rheumatism has, not occurred,  develops the disease,and when diagnosis  of the case isnmde.it is generally found  that the ailment is due to a derangement of the blood.  One such sufferer who has been cured  is Capt. D. W. Becket, who lives in'the  township of Oxford, Grenville County.  Capt  Bcuket is the owner of 375 acres,  and lives in a beautiful farm   home on  the   banks of  the .Rideau, some   three  miles   from  Kemptville.    In addition  to being a  thrifty  farmer, Mr  Becket  has taken an   enthusiastic   interest  in  our volunteer force, and has  graduated  from the  military' college  at i Toronto  with a first class 'certificate,' which entitled him to tho rank of Major.    To a.  reporter of   the  Kemptville  Advance,  Capt. Becket made the following statement:���������"Four years ago I, was   taken  suddenly with rheumatism in   both by  elbows and thigh joints.    The  pain at  times was something  terrible.,   I  took  medicine,  and   doctored for  over; six  months, but continued --to  grow, worse  and worse.    My arms from   the  elbow  joints to the tips of  the fingers became  numb and had a prickly sensation, and'  I was unable to do any work; in fact I  could not  lift   my   hand to my head.  The pain I suffered in my hips was also  almost unbearable   and  my  legs were  nearly as useless as  nay arms. > I  bad  frequently read testimonials where Dr.  Williams'   Pink  Pills  had cured  this  disease, and at last  I  thought I would  try theni as an experiment.    Before I  had completed the first box I felt they  were helping me, and-^after I had taken  the pills a "little   more  than  a month,  the pain had entirely   left   me, and I  felt.an   altogether : different  man.

Princess Louiso, Mai'chioncss of Lome,"  is perhaps tho most democratic of Queen  Victoria's (laughters, so far as such a term  can be applied to any royal princess. She  has no sympathy with pretensions and affectations.. On many occasions her royal  highness has done things with her own  hands that women whoso chief claim to  consideration oxistod in their own imagination would havo rung the bell for a servant to do.  Onco whon visiting the schoolroom of a  certain littlo lady who had very exalted  ideas of her own rank sho discovered that  affairs between pupil and governess wero  a littlo strained. The princess inquired of  the governess the cause. Tho littlo lady,  at once suro of tho right on her side, burst  in with: "Miss F. wanted me to-clean my  slate. Surely a duke's daughter need not  clean her own slate!" "Miss F. is quite  right," said the princess. "I am tho  queen's daughter, and I always cleaned  my slato."  Onco tho princess was presiding at a  committee meeting, and when leaving the  house where it was held tho hostess dropped her bangle. Sho was politely waiting  until tho princess had passed to pick it up,  but to her surprise Princoss Louiso stooped, picked it up and gave it to her, saying  simply, "I might have trodden on your  pretty bracelet."  Tho dignity of royal ladies depouds upon othor things than small observances,  although in the matter of etiquette they  are nil past mistresses when occasion requires.���������Baltimore True American.

FIRST AUTUMN STYLES.  3������y   Colors     tha    Keynote���������3Jo,   Radical  Chanjro la tlie Cut of Gowns.  The autumn color card shown by the  French manufacturers prosents \a perfect riot of colore, the purplo and plum  shades predominating in both tho plain  cloths and fancy wools. The first installment of fall goods is already in tho  hands of tho French couturierca, some  of whom are even showing what they  term "autumn models." Oho never has  much confidence in the modes displayed  before the 1st of September. They may  be "autumn models" without being  autumn fashions, for there has beon  many a carefully designed model condemned to wasto its glory in tho atelier  *f, the dressmaker. It is not easy to  prophesy what the fashionable'world  will chooso to wear a season ahead.  However, the opinions of several leading dressmakers as to what will be  fashionable are of interest and possess a.  certain amount of value.  First, ' the  colors will  bo extremely  gay and will  lean more  toward purple  , and plum than to red or blue., The predominance of these shados will lead to  fiomo, rather novel combinations���������purple and- salmon pink, for instance.  There will bo little or no change in tho  *��������� cut of the skirt. In the models ready to  be  seen  now tho skirts agree  to a dot, -  ��������� and the dressmakers seem to have given  up the,,half hearted'attempt to make  drapery popular. This- model skirt fits  absolutely glovelike about the hips, and  in   fact  dafinos the  figure in a manner  ' that would  havo seemed astonishing a  ' year  ago.    The volants en' forme have ���������  about  run their oourse.    They may ap-  ' pear in the autumn, but the dressmakers are not showing them and advise  flat trimmings that do not destroy the  contour, of the figure. The trimmed  skirt will' not be so necessary as it has  been during the spring, but  trimming!  away in two points under the chin.  The foregoing itema of fashion, by a  Paris correspondent, are reproduced  from the New York Tribune, in which  the cut of a brown glace gown with  flat trimming and lace applique also occurs.  JUST fl BAD  Fruit Stains.  At this Feason of the year napkins,  tablecloths and even children's clothes  are very apt to become .stained with  fruit. One of the simplest methods to  remove these fruit stains from linen or  cambric is to place the stained part  over a howl and continue pouring boiling water through until tho stain disappears. If this bo done soon after the ar-  ticlo is stained, there will be no trouble  in most cases. The water must be boiling hot.  ��������� '"    Not Enough.

Embroideries and  novel braidings will be much used, and  perforated cloths in a now form appear  among the new goods.  Perhaps a word should be said in regard to the deep collars that occur on  the summer gowns and promise to be  even more extensively worn during the  autumn. The simplest form is the  dauphin collar, which is cut to pass  about the, shoulders, tho ends meeting  on the bust and surrounding a heart  shaped portion of the dross waist; the  ends generally join, under a bow or a  scarf may pass under the collar to tie  in a butterfly on the bust..  The change in bodices will consist  mere in novel arrangements of trim-  mings, of now forms of collars and  probably a diirereufc shaped sleevo than  in any, decided chango in cut. To judge  by these advanced models tho blouse  will remain, as it is now, tho most; popular of shapes. Its new features soem  to be an elaborate form of a sailor collar and long, wrinkled sleeves. There  are some basque effects worn, usually  with a belt, and ono gown has a curious  little waist that barely covers the waist  line.  Almost all chokers are snug, trig  and smart rather than elaborate in character, but tho entire stylo of a gown  may depend on the finish at the neck.  It is probable that the cut of these  chokers is more difficult to achieve than  that of the more elaborato one, for evidently they must be carefully shaped.  Some dressy costumes have simply a  turnover collar of tho miff, with a bow  finishing it. A pretty choker that is in  vogue again is th/D double collar. The  high choker is of tho cloth, and one of  silk turns over this, while a scarf of  the same silk passes about the neck inside tho collar and makes a bow in  front. A pretty form of this choker has  the 'Silk turnover collar cut to flare  Mr. Crusty���������Here are some pennies,  but I don't think you tell a plausible  story.  , Indolent Ives���������Well, I sized yer up  fer a cheap guy, an dat's do best story  I"kin put up fer 2 cents!���������New York  Journal.

"However, I got no relief until I  started to take Milburn's Heart and  Nerve PillSj which I used together with  Laxa-Liver Pills, and now after having;  used a few boxes, I am better than I  have been for years.

MUNICIPAL INCORPORATION.  Editor Ne^'s':���������  If the estimates allow Comox Electoral  District no more thau you state they do,  then it is time that the people take up the  question with a view, if possible, of prevent  ing a similar outrage in the future. "Politics should out no figure in fche discussion.ot  the matter. What is right aud ought to be  done remains the same no "matter who is iu  ���������Dower. ������6000.00 for Comox! What will  that sum enable to be done ? Will it open  new roads? Wfil it even keep in repair  those already opened*? Doubtless those -Mid  similar questions will present'-fcemselves for  the consideration of the public Municip'al.  incorporation may in some parts of the dis'-'  tricb prove a remedy for the future. I do  not know sufficient about the district, to  suggest that incorporation ought to be obtained. The wisdom, or otherwise of having self government must be1 determined by  those interested in the district. However,  if incorporation can be shown to be a good  thing, the people should nob hesitate to incorporate. Political, social, religious, and  other differences should give way to the  consideration of commonweal. I trust that  our people will not allow the subject to  pass their attention. If they do they may  bo assured that as silence gives consent  their lot next year will" be no batter.  ���������OBSERVER.  r-  LOCAL   BRIEFS,  ��������� W-e have'looked "carefsali3'* over  '? tlie'-'Sstimates, and find nothing  Wpecialiy-Voted for the cotei pletion  .'. of our new "''school.
