lernie Relief Concert.
As will be seen by report published the sum of $37 was netted  from
the proceeds of the concert held on
June 23rd, which will no doubt be
considerably swelled by the additional sum.(which we will be pleased to publish) gained by the Minstrel Club.     Considering that the
Cumberland   Relief  Fund was,,so
generously contributed  to by  the
citizens'of Fernie the amount now
in  hand/ with the promised  sub-
s-cription, will'be totally inadequate
and cannot  be/too widely'known.
Too much cannot be, said in condemnation of the means taken by
certain unprincipled persons to prevent a   larger  attendance  at ��� the
entertainment on the 23rd.  Special
attention was directed to the numbers  performed   by   the orchestra,
but as an individual remarked that
there was too much "orchester," the'
opinion of music-lovers and musicians was that  there could not.be
too much of a'good thing, especially
when such a musician of merit, ah'
Prof: Schaffner   is   in  the ranks.
Every one present', was "charmed by
the singing.of,-the Misses  Bennie,
Rushworth*,- Cameron and Corbett,
who'received repeated encores, from
the   appreciative--audience,* \while
Mr Hutchinsoniso well known as;a !
singer, will'lend"distinction  tetany

melodies ,cwere highly appreciated,'

The excursion last Thursday, under the auspices of the L,O.L., No.
1576, of Nanaimo, and'No. 1619'of
Wellington, was ��� well patronized,
about 300 visiting Cumberland that
day. -Upon reaching the station,
the procession formed as follows:���
W. McLellan, D. of C.; fife and
drum band; Nanaimo L.O.L.; Wellington X.O.L.; Cumberland brass
band; Cumberland L.O.L. No. 1676;
The-jprocession passed under the
arches erected on Duhsmuir*Ave.���
the first, the Orangemen's arch, being very.neat'and gracefully decorated with evergreens and the colors
of the Order.   Reaching 3rd street,
the march was continued  up that
street to Maryport Avenue, thence
to .2nd street, down again to Dunsmuir  Avenue,  then  down  to   the
lower Camp, from, thence back to
,the Union Hotel corner and up to
the grounds, the two bands playing
alternately.    Reaching the grounds
the parade disbanded, .and an adjournment was made for lunch. In
the afternoon the sports were entered   into, ,and   in.some cases  the
events   , were   warmly   contested;
This   progressed   most favourably
until about 4.30  p.m. when   rain
���-began   to" fall,   and-^iricreased   so
much that; the' field was in a short
_time .quite deserted.   _.However, in
about un hours' time the sun was
again   shining   and   the   deferred
football game wa*-- played, resulting
in a victory for Ladysmith, which;
team well deserved.it, for they had
to work for the honour.
-Owing to the illnefs of the King,
no demonstration ��� of a specially
patriotic nature was made, the affair being simply a greeting*- to the

, *   3- W     *^r-  ���������H  J  v*,*  By EUGENIE UHLRICH  f Copyright, 1801, by     ,  Eugenie 'Uhlrxclz  The old lady sat very still. The  hands that usually" made'the knitting  needles ily had not moved foi full ten  ���������minutes. ITer eyes were fixed abstractedly on a somewhat worn' spot,in the  bright red and vivid green ingrain car-  'pet. If bj' chance she had been asked  what was in he:- mind, sho probably,  would have replied testily that, it was  about time those carpet strips were  woven and put down. What Avith'The  tracking in and out and,sitting-round,  .winter was harder than summer on  carpets. *  13at when tho .howling, wind gave a  fresh blast and the coal in the base  burner sputtered up with an'answering  glow she turned toward the muslin hung  windows, and ono might have thought  that,she was having a little struggle*  -to sit still on her chair. * The old man,  smoking by the stove, looked at her  furtively every once in awhile. Now,  when a stronger blast shook-the house,  -he pulled closer the black silk muffler  under his coat collar and turned to his  wife.  ,, '  r "It's  a cold  night for  Now  Year's,  ��������� -mother.    I mind it was almost as bad  when Johnny was married''���������  She did not answer or even look at  ���������him, but a tightening of tho lips showed that she had heard.  The old man had learned the danger  signals  and   was  silent  for the time.  -���������"There was something-unusual in mbth-  ���������er's mood, but he did not know for cer-'  -.tain which way the signs poinded.  "New -Year.'s night do be lonesomcr  ..than  any other .night,"   he  continued  tentatively,    "with    no    children    and  young folks to see the old yeax-, out.    I  saw Johnny's boy the other day"���������  Then the old lady swung round in her  ���������chair "so. hard and qu.ick that she joggled the la'nip, at her elbow, and the lit-  'tie fringes on her silk. embroidered  -shoulder shawl trembled.'  ' *  "Johnny's boy, indeed! And-you saw  "feini, of course. And whose fault is it  'but yours that Johnny's boy'isn't here,  I'd like to know? You were always giving the boys their way about everything. ..That's how they came to marry  those Quinlan girls, far downs like  them, the Lord save us!"  "AYell,.- mother, they always seemed  good girls to me and are good house-'  keepers now. Of course there's them  that ma3r be better to our way of thinking." The old man never said "your"  ������������������when making an assertion which moth-  r-r*  XT  WAS  TOMMY  MUtiE-ENY  with   a   note  PaOJI HIS S1STEB.  ���������er might question. "There's them that  'had more money, and everybody ean't  ���������come- from Limerick.". But, then, it's the  lads who have to live with the girls,  and thc-j' ought to have something to  say." ...,.'.:,';   rt was a long speech for the old man,  and the old lady was gasping when he  finished.  "Yes. and you don't, mind mo having  to think of my own children's children  being.-brought up in tho ways of the  ���������Quintans.     It    wasn't   .enough    when  Johnny married Nellie, but you had to.  'be that nice about it that Richard went  ���������and married Kate."  ���������'���������He tried to turn the stream of indignation into less immediate channels.  "It did. seem aggravating," he said,  "though Johnny's boy seems a nice lit-  ���������tle  fellow  for seven.   But of course,  '.'mother, you don't kuow him."  Didn't she know him? Wasn't she  ���������going to church every Sunday just to  -see the children march in for Sunday  -school; and Johnny's boy with them?  She not know Johnny's boy! But she  said nothing.  The old man walked to the window,  a gentle, deprecating figure in a shiny  black suit. His white hair was combed  forward over the thinnest spots in  front and parted carefully toward the  ears in the back. The mild blue eyes  'and rosy skin gave him a look of almost infantile kindliness save for a  certain furtive shrewdness that may  have come from years of watching the  siorm signals of his wife's moods. 0  ��������� "The old lady's all right," he replied  when any of his relatives bad the temerity to give him advice as to his domestic arrangements. "She's the best  hand in sickness and a good manager,  but she does like to have her own way,  and it takes her awhile to come round  when she finds that she's made a mistake. But she does come round if you  give her time enough, and that's more  than you' can say for most" of them."  He raised the curtains gently now  and peered out.  "Just look, mother! What a blizzard  it has got to he ail at once! Now,  that's too had<for little Kitfv AJulIonV������  party,' and   all  the   children  are  still  there. I can see their little heads bobbing up and down, where the curtain's  up. I shouldn't wonder if - Johnny's  boy was there too."'   -  The old lady did not answer. She  knew very well that Johnny's two  boys and Richie's'one were there,-and  she had boon listening all -evening,  with her heart in ber mouth, to the  sounds of wild weather.  -"I don't know, motheiil" th'e old man  ,went on after he was comfortably seated once more, "but we ought to nialce  a will"��������� '"  "A will! What is putting things into  your head tonight of all nights?"  "You see, it's New Year's," he answered, "and there's them who, are  younger than us who-won't be here to  see the next new, year in. . Seeing the  way you feel about things, we might  leave-m'ost, or considerable at least,'to  'the orphan asylum. It would be doing  a lotof'good"��������� ' -  ,' She jumped round in her seat again,  but whatever was. in her mind to answer was not said, for there was a  knock atcthe door.  "Mercy alive!" she said, and "Gee,  but it's blowing!" came from without.  It was Tommy Mulleny with a note  from his eldest sister. . The children  who lived across the river.c-ouiu'uot~T5e'  ���������taken home iri this blizzard. 'Word-had  .been sent to, the parents, by telephone.

'       -^  "To be .sure;' mother," he said.-  "I'll,  Just go over and help Tommy bring the  children. 'Twill" be like old times"*���������  A vague expectation that made her  heart beat and her'hands tremble had  seized upon the old lady. She set the  lamp in the window as a guide and  strained her cjres to see into the howling swirl -without 'that shut off even  the sight octrees in their own garden.  After a long fifteen minutes the stamping, of ,feet told that they had come  back. Tho old man mumbled something about going aroilnd the house to  look after things. Tommy Mulleny held  the hall door open for three little boys,  and thonrho said something about not  wanting to track snow all over the  house and vanished. ���������  As for the old lady, she heard not.  She was looking at the three little boys  who blinked at her, blinded by the  darkness without and the sudden glare  of light within. Then the biggestone  pulled off his cap.  "Happy New Year, grandma!" he  sang out, and even as he did so he was  turning to peel off his little brother's  cap. "Jimmj-'s too little to take off his  own cap, and Cousin Richie, top, and  wo all brought some cookies and candy  from tho party for you. My, I could  hardly walk, and grandpa bad to carry  Richie, and Tommy Mulleny helped  Jimmy. But I'm glad it snowed. Mamma always said I couldn't come to see  yo.u until I was,as big and as good aa  papa, but now I guess we just had to  come before we were big."  The old woman's trembling hands  were turning down his coat collar.1  "Look at the curls of him," she murmured, bending over him ' hungrily���������  "just like Johnny's! It's this long time  I've wanted to fool them, bless him!"  And she kissed Johhny's boy again and  ' Truth is the simplest of all virtue's; it requires neither study nor  art.

Its director is a woman of high  social standing whose love of art  prompted her to go into trade and who  since she put but her sign has .been  called in to decorate some of the handsomest homes in this city.  ,The woman is Mrs. Priestman, and  she is the first woman in.the city to  take, up the art of house decorating  and by following her profession on the  principle of art first and money 'making second has gained a reputation and  success hitherto undreamed of and has  .raised the -work of interior decorating  to a fine art.  Mrs. Priestman, herself a woman of  refinement and culture, understands  perfectly the requirements of her fashionable patrons.- She has planned the  furnishing and decorating of the homes  of some of the most influential and ex-  enough. If she needs to save money,  she does it at the butcher's cost\ If  she is busy, she will not waste time.in  eating. If she is unhappy, she goes  without food. A man eats if the sheriff is at the door, if his work drives, if  the undertaker interrupts, and he .is  right. A woman will choose ice cream  instead of beefsteak, and a man will  not.  Another of  her   mistakes  is  in  not  knowing how to rest.    If-she is,tired,  ,she may sit down,  lint she, will darn  stockings, .crochet   shawls,   embroider  dollies.  si,,-, dopsn't know Hint hard work  tires. If she is exhausted, she will  write letters, figure her a-ccounts or  read up for some circle-or club. She  would laugh at you if you hinted that  reading or .writing could ' fail to -rest,  her. All oyer the country women's  hospitals flourish because women do  not know how to rest. -  Another mistake on the -list is their  constant worrying. Worry and hurry  are their enemies, and yet' they hug  them to their bosoms. Women cross  bridges before they come to them and  even build bridges.  Women are not jolly enough. They  make too serious a business of life and  laugh at its little humors too seldom.  Men stop in the midst of perplexities  and have a hearty' laugh, and it keeps  them young. Women cannot, and that  is one reason why they fade so- early.'  THE G. 0.. D, MAN.  HOW HE WORKED HIS QUEER SYSTEM  IN  A SM/M.L. TOWN   IN   IOWA.

That  she is ever to be depended on and that  her success is unfailing are proved by  her fame as an interior decorator.  Mrs. Priestman .first studied the art  of house decorating in England, and  she was the first woman to enter that  field in this country. She took up the  work out of a pure love'of making  things beautiful and restful, and sho  says that in uo country are restful  homes more necessary than in energetic America, where the people are always on the rush, their nerves constantly strung up to the highest pitch  and their brains ever active.���������Philadelphia Times.  A  Children-"* Party.  It is a mistake "to spend much money  on expensive flowers or favors for a  children's party, especially if the little  folks be under ton. They will appreciate moro keenly something that is novel or that they can eat or destroy.  In  celebrating a   birthday the  cake  must be the central ornament.   Small  cake candles are inexpensive and come  in all colors.   Very pretty are the tiny'  candle holders in tbe form of rosebuds,  pink or white,  and  arranged  so that  they can be-securely fastened to the  icake. These cost 3 to 5 cents each. The  candles should be selected to match tbe  icing of the cake or the flowers used as  decoratiou.  Light them just as the little guests are seated at the table.  Surround the cake with a wreath of evergreen or fringed tissue or ruffled crape  paper.    The evergreen wreath is more  decorative with  a   bow  of ribbon  to  match the candles in color at one side.  Arrange a plate with  fork and tea-  . spoon   at.   the   right   and   glass   with  straw for each child at the top of the  plate, a little to the right.   Lay a napkin on each plate with a name cookie  at the upper side.  The menu at a children's party may  Include plenty of chopped meat or  chicken sandwiches and a few sweet  sandwich bars tied in pairs with narrow ribbon, creamed chicken in paper  cases or in shells, cakes, cookies and  wafers, .bonbons and ice cream. Cut  the ice cream in round shape when  serving, and it will be just as satisfactory as if molded in fancy forms. For  drink serve cocoa with whipped cream  on top or lemonade tinted faintly with  pink color paste.���������Philadelphia Times.  -    Welcome  Broom Cure.  'Young women ' who are bemoaning  the possession of arms not plump  enough.! to be pleasing'may accept the  following-suggestion, if 7only on trial'.  It is said that Clara Louise Kellogg,  the singer,' when a young girl was  much annoyed by the attenuated appearance of her'arms when she began  to don evening dress at her crowded  concerts. Some one recommended a  brisk use of the broom,"which advice  she followed and soon had*' round,  plump arms as the' reward of hor labor. If a thin, listless girl can by any.  moans be persuaded to try tbe "broom  cure," she will' be astonished to find  what a beautifier it surely, is.  Mending Clilna.  In mending china and bric-a-brac tbe  very best cements will fail unless they*  are carefully and properly applied. Iu  ���������the first place, make sure that the  parts to-be joined are perfectly, clean  and free from grease and grit The  broken edges should, be thoroughly  washed in a strong solution of lye or  soap and care be taken not to touch  them with the bands afterward.' ,���������The  cement should be put ou very sparingly, and the edges srhould be Held together until it is solid. For this purpose a  piece of copper wire is better than  string, as it can be tightened by twisting and holds'the parts more firmly.  Coffee Snncc. '  A coffee sauce offers a .good flavor  with a mold of any sort of blancmange.  The coffee is brewed in hot cream.  Pour half a pint of boiling hot cream  over two tablespoonfuls*of ground coffee. Cover closely and let stand for  about a quarter of an hour; then strain  into a saucepan, sweeten and stir in -  the yolk of an egg and a scant tea-  spoonful of cornstarch. Let it come to  a boil over a medium fire, and when  cold add the beuten whites of two eggs  and set away to chill thoroughly before  serving.  Small  Gloves.  Don't squeeze your hands into gloves  which are uncomfortably small. By  doing this you will be sure to make  your hands look pudgy and puddingy  and will very probably make tbem red  and uncomfortable- after the gloves  have been taken off. Choose gloves  that are long enough in the fingers  and which button neatly at the wrist.  Take care, however, that they are not  too large, for baggy backs, slouchy  wrists and wrinkled fingers have a  slovenly look which is most unattractive. '���������-'  v Nice Hands.  To keep the hands nice rub over  thoroughly with a few drops of pure  glycerin, which will remove stains and  dirt. Then wash with good toilet soap  and tepid water: also have a solution  of borax always ready in a bottle, and  into the'water you are going to ;wash  in pour as much as will soften it. If  women would only use this more and  make it by dissolving borax in boiling  water, they would find it most cleansing and softening. ���������  Some Mistakes of Women.  One of the mistakes of women Is ln  not knowing how to eat. If a man is  not to be fed when she is, she thinks a  cup of tea. or anything handy is good  Mnen   Closet   SfAelveo.  The shelves or drawers of a linen  closet should be neatly covered with  white paper tbat is changed frequently. A few sprigs of lavender or some  very mild sachet powder in bags should  be laid among the pieces to take away  the slight odor of soap that often is  noticeable.

"Mrs. Bilkins learned to play poker  so she could  keep her husband iu at  night."  "And does he stay in now?"  "I should say so.

I replied. 'As a dilapidated gentleman,  studying human nature, however^' I  have covered about 20,0,00 miles of railroad track and country highways.' .*  . " 'And you can get up and talk to an  audience on the ' subject of temperance?'   "   .  " "If I had a decent suit of clothes to'  replace these.'  " Tt might do,' he mused. 'There'd  be a novelty about it anyhow, and the  society wouldn't be entirely disappointed. Did you ever deliver a temperance  lecture before?' "   '  '��������� 'Not strictly a temperance lecture,  1 but'I've delivered addresses on several  subjects and got through very fairly.'  '" 'You don't look like a joker,' he  said as he gave me a looking over.  " T haven't smiled for five years,' I  answered him.  "He studied the case for awhile and  then made up his mind and said:  " 'I'll give you a show. Take this  money and go and get a shave, and  when you come back I'll lend you a suit  of clothes. If vou make a fool of the  thing, we'll run 3*011 into jail, but if  you make a fairly decent address I'll  put a five dollar bill in your hand.'  "In three-quarters of an hour I was  ���������eady to go with him to the hall.   He  turned out to be something of a joker  himself.    I was introduced to an audience of 400 people as Professor Tosh,  who was going to take the place of  Professor Guild, and I could find no  fault with my reception.    I suppose I  have listened to a score of temperance  lectures in my life and have read more  or less of the evils of drink���������as who  has not?���������and I didn't havo to work  my head very much.    The people had  come there to hear of the debasing influence  of liquor and the  virtues of  cold Avater, and all I had to do was to  fill the order and .make a change.    I  had bad half an hour to arrange things  in alphabetical order, and I started oil  with a little story of a wounded' soldier listening tp the lapping and gurgling of a brook he could not reach as  he suffered the tortures of thirst.    I  had most of the women crying before  that soldier yielded up his life for the  want of a little bit of the barrels of  water  going  to   waste  a   few   yards  away, and the rest was dead easy.   If  you can once get an audience to weeping or laughing, you are on the road to  success.    When I  had killed  my soldier off ih good shape, I presented the  picture of a sweet faced little girl tripping into a saloon with a growler to  get beer for her father, who sat in his  garret home yelling at the hungry baby  and blasting the eyes of his weeping  wife.   There was more weeping among  the women, and one young man got so  excited that he rose up, and went out  to punch a saloon keeper's head.    Of  course  I  had the  little girl  spill  the  beer in returning home, and of course  her   besotted   and    indignant   father  threw her down stairs and broke hor  neck.    It was a climax that brought  every one to his feet with a demand  that even ginger beer should no longer  rear its hydra head in America.  "Temperance   statistics   are   easv."  continued the C. O. D. man as he fixed  his eyes on a tramp who sat at a table  in the corner and had, just ordered a  glass of beer. "The amount of cold  water at our disposal in this country  is 1,000 gallons a day for every man,  woman and child in it, with barrels  and barrels left over for domestic animals and to run Niagara falls in proper shape. Wo all know that, and nobody cares to dispute it. The amount  of intoxicating drink passed over the  bar is about a pint apiece daily, which  gives every old. soaker' ten or twelve  pints, and the money expended amounts  to S57nO.000.000 b yoar. Aside from  Ihese figures, drink is responsible tor  600.000 crimes every < twelve months,  causes the death of half a million children and docs more general harm than  4.000 churches can offset. Lgave them  the whole thing right down to the last  gill of whisky and the last red cent  and then wound up with a peroration  that started cascades of ice cold 'water  leaping down every hill in 'America.  The lecture was a success. A dozen  chairs ^,wcre upset and throe or four  windows broken as-tho audience surged forward to hug mo, and the president crowded $10 into my hand and  whispered into my ear:  " 'Say. now, old tramp, I couldn't  nave done much better than that myself! You just keep that suit of clothus  and .say nothing to nobody.*'  "Yes, it was a success," sighc-a the  dilapidated . gentleman, "but the rose  had its thorn. A widow with $30,000  behind her,- whose lamented husband  had broken his neck while drunk and  trying to break hers,' was so carried  away by my remarks that she fell in-  love with me and offered me her hand,  heart and cash. I.went so-far as to  press her hand and promise to give the  matter my. earliest and most earnest  attention, but it had to end there. I  didn't even dare to accept ah invitation  to, dinner, and while she was driving  around next day to unearth 'Professor  Tosh' I was hoofing the highways at  the rate of six iniles an hour. < Splendid opportunity for a man who wanted  to settle, down and become' mayor of  the town, but I had to throw it over.

If it is his adventure, how can he avoid saying, ,4I  did thus or so?" If his courage pulled  him out of a'tight place, why seek-to  demean it? A man is what he i.s. If  things have happened to him which  may be of interest to others, let him  write them as they took place, whether he was a hero or a craven.  Your atlas will show you tliat the,  eastern Carpathian mountains form a  portion of the boundary line between  Servia and Bulgaria. If you cross anywhere to the north of Tirot, you must  cross the range. In my wanderings  afoot I had- planned to cross the range  by the public road between Tirot and  Nissa, but for three days I was a guest  at a poor little wayside inn in the shadow of the foothills. , This inn differed  ��������� ,in no degree front a huudred others, being only a wretched apology for a house  of  entertainment,  but  I   had  made a  ��������� long  tramp   and   wanted, a  breathing  ��������� spell before the long and "rugged ascent. The landlord was a "silent, morose  man, giving me. little attention, and his  wife was a sloven with a face,which a  man would look at twice only for its  wickedness.    The  beds "and   the   fare  ��������� .were of the 'meanest, but as I had expected nothing better I was not disappointed..  On the second day of my arrival as  I  was  walking along the banks of, a  -   stream   half a mile from   the  inn  an  English pedestrian came along.    That  ,    is,  be' was a pedestrian  in  the sense*.  '\that   he ,was   afoot.     As   soon  as   he  learned who I was he told me that-'a  cousin of his had journeyed that way  three months- before, but had mysteriously disappeared.    The missing man'  ���������had been traced as far as Piiwt.    He  was  known" to  have  set out  for  the  mountain  road,   but  he  could  not  be  ,   traced  into; Bulgaria.    Somewhere on  the   mountain 'trail   he   had   vanished  .from"sight.   The story did not interest  me overmuch.    American and English  pedestrians abroad have a habit of disappearing   from   the   world   now   and  then, , and  it is  learned  later on  that  rthey  wero tucked  away  in   some  ob  scure  inn  or  camped  amid  some  old  ruin.    The searcher passed on to my  inn and made inquiries and two hours  later informed me that he had secured  no news.  ��������� That evening a second searcher arrived. He was a native Servian", living  at Leskovatz, and had been hired by a  Frenchman to prosecute inquiries regarding tho disappearance of a young  * man of 20 who was making a pedestri-  " an tour. Indeed I soon recalled the  fact of meeting the young man at Se-  mendria two months previously. He  had headed for the Carpathians and  Bulgaria, and he had also disappeared  on the mountains: Even when the two  ���������disappearances were coupled together  I saw nothing alarming. It was not  until the third day that I felt I had  cause for speculation. Then a police  official "who had been sent out from  Novibazar by the widowed mother of a  young man who had disappeared' as  mysteriously as the other two reached  the inn. This young man, who simply  set out for a two weeks' tramp in order  to boast of having crossed the Carpathians, had been traced to within five  miles of the inn, but the landlord and  his wife stoutly denied that he had  ever reached it. There were roads,  by which he could have branched off  ' and continued his way, but yet the official was not satisfied. He frankly told,  me that he believed young Hull had  come to the inn and been made away  with for the money he carried. I had  seen nothing suspicious, and he had no  real grounds for an accusation, but he  went away, saying that he would have  the place watched.  I was ready to take my departure on  the fourth day, when there was a sudden change in the demeanor of the  landlord and his wife. All at once they  became obsequious and smiling and  solicitous. A nice lunch was put up for  , me, and they refused pay for it. I was  given the clearest directions and was  told that almost as soon as I bad'begun  the ascent' of the mountain I would  find an interesting ruin a little off the  road. It was something I ought not to  miss, and they kept extolling it until I  promised to turn aside. 1 set off in  good spirits, though wondering a bit as  to the sudden and singular change in  the people of the inn, and by noon 1  had covered a distance of 12 miles. I  passed two inns without stopping and  likewise three or four peasants' huts,  and when I sat down to rest it was on  a large stone by the roadside and close  beside one of the branches of the Danube. I nibbled at lunch as 1 rested,  and I had been sitting perhaps 20 minutes when a young woman with a fish  pole in her hand suddenly appeared.   I  gave her pood day as a matter of  course and was not much surprised  when she'l.-iid down her poie and cann.*-  and sat beside me ai:d began to ask  questions. She was a peasant girl of  about 2-1*. bettor' dressed and, bettor-  looking than the average." and,,in addressing a stranger sho broke no rule  of conventionality according to th'.3  peas-ant code. I invited hor to share  my lunch, and presently we were chatting away like eld acquaintances.  In   many   instances  the   peasants  of  Servia   had   displayed 'more   curiosity  than a born Yankee, hut this girl went  deeper than any of thorn.    Some of her  questions   were   answered   and   some  turned aside, but she certainly'.came to  know a, good deal about me.    1 was a  single  man.  and  I  had 'not conmiuni-'  en tod with my friends ,for'months.    I  "������������������as strolling  from   point  to  point to,  study .the people and see the country'  and was'*not expected at any particular  point in Bulgaria;   PeasauL^thoutjh she  was, she had  the gift of a lawyer in  extracting information.'  An hour slipped away, and then' a man appeared.  He was also fishing or pretending to.  ���������and as he came in sight she called him.  and' he joined 'us and was introduced  as her brother. ' A glance from face to  face made  me doubt the relationship.  ��������� In my,own mind I figured that he was  her husband.    He tried  to smile and  show a.pleasant face, but I instinctively felt that he was a rascal.    He had si  furtive -eye and a  bad   mouth,   and  I  thought I caught signals between the  pair.    Such, a thing as fear, however,  had no place in my heart.    I  had no  weapon aside'from" my stout stick, but  I was afraid of no man by daylight on  a public highway.  I was ready to move-on when the woman spoke of the castle ruins. - They  wcro only a step away, she said, and if  I missed them I would be sorry forever  after. The man at once added.his.persuasion, but as I was ready to go with  them he claimed to have left his knife  a hundred rods away and set out after  it and left the two of us to walk on together. From the momont we started  I noticed.a change in-her.* She looked,  about apprehensively, herdaughtor was  forced,, and her demeanor put mo on  ray guard. It was as if she expected  me to be shot, down from ambush.  Had  Hc.rncant murder.  I not been* able to see the old ruins almost as soon a's wc started I should  have doubted that they existed. As it  was I found myself wondering if this  pair was in any manner connected  with the disappearance of the tourists.  I was on my guard for what might  happen, and yet I did not betray myself. I kept up the conversation as we  walked along, and I am sure she took  me for an easy victim. I rather expected to be fired on from behind some  rock as soon as we were off the road,  but hy and by we heard the man calling from the ruins, and I realized that  the ambush would be there if anywhere. As we halted on the plateau it  was easy to make out that a vast  building had stood there once. I should,  have said a monastery, but tho woman  insisted that it was a great castle belonging to some mighty prince'and that  it had been destroyed by an .earthquake. We wandered among the acre  of ruins as. we talked. As we neared  what must have been the rear of the  building I found that the walls stood  almost on the brink of a precipice. Before us was what had been a large  room, with three of the walls yet  standing. There were no less than five  window openings, and as I advanced  to one of them the woman'said:  "No; take this one. My brother has  built a platform from which you can  look up and down the valley for miles."  A peculiar something in her voice  caused me to glance at her face, aad 1-  found it pale and her features w. king  in a nervous way. It was the window,  then, which was the ambush. My  heart beat against my ribs, but I  meant to see the thing to a finish. The  m.m had called to us, but we had not  seen him since arriving at the ruins.  With a laugh which sounded more like  a croak the woman pulled herself together and preceded me to tbe window.  To reach tbe opening we had to climb  up three stone steps, and she stood for  a moment looking out and clinging to  the wall for support.  "You   will  see  a   fiue   view���������a   fine  ' view," she said as she made room for  me.   "Step out and look'up and down."  ' I did not step out.    There was something so  modern about that platform  and it. had been built'so'deftly that.I  feared' it.    I simply clung to the wall  and  thrust  my 'bead  out,  and  I   was  looking up the valley when the woman  gave me a push with all ber strength.  Her hands did hot strike  me fair or  my bold would have been  broken.    I  was whirled half way round and partly thrown down, but as I recovered my  - footing I swept her aside with my arm,  and  she  went to the* ground,  with "a  scream.    Next instant the man came  dashing through   the  doorway, in  the  wall., He, had a knife in his hand, and  he meant murder.    I leaped down to  meet him that I might have free play  for my staff, and. I believe we battled  for  ten ,,minutes.     Still   lying  on   the  .ground, the woman seized'my legs and  tried to pull me down, but I kicked her  away and gave all my attention to the  man.    Aye, but that fellow was crafty  and villainous and determined.    Had I  fought him with a knife he would soon  have settled me.   It was the stout staff  which  kept  him  off,  aud   it -was  the  staff which finally dealt him .a blow  that laid him out unconscious.    I..looked   for  the   woman   as "I   stopped  to  breathe,  but she ,had disappeared.    I  went over to the window and examined the platform and found that it was  -sustained  by a lever  which could be  pulled  out  and  allow   the   bottom  to  drop.    As the man began,to return to  life I lifted up my staff and'beat him  till I was weary, and then I went my  way up the mountain road.    That ambush had gathered at least three victims, but it was not for me to carry a  mystery to the police, and bo-detained*  in   a   filthy  jail   for  months  or  years  while they took their time to' solve it.

Lewis.]  \Vood That L-oolvS I-ilce Metal.  A European scientist has discovered a  method by which wood may be given  the appearance of metal. - Outside of  the, added value for decorative ' purposes v*'hich this may give, the advantage to be derived is not clearly apparent. The wood is said to be ren-  dnvpd exceedingly hard1 and strong, although it is equally uncertain what  part of the process- may be assumed  to confer these desirable qualities upon  wood which was soft and weak'before  treatment.     '  The process is described as follows:  The-wood is first soaked-for three or  .four days in a solution of caustic alkali  at a temperature of from ,75 to 90 degrees centigrade aud is th'eu (transferred at once to a bath of hydrosul-  phate of calcium, to which a saturated  solution of sulphur in caustic alkali is  added after 2-1' hours. Tho "wood remains in this bath, which is kept at a.  temperature of from.33 to 00 degrees  centigrade, and finally it is soaked for  about 30 to 50 hours in a solution of  acetate of lead. The wood is then dried  at a moderate temperature and may be  polished with a burnisher of hard wood.  In this case it can be made to acquire a  brilliant metallic luster, and if the surface is previously rubbed with a piece  of lead, tin or zinc and a glass or porcelain burnisher is used the effect is  increased. The wood treated in this  way resembles a metallic mirror.���������Chicago Chronicle.  The Eloquent Butter Crock.  On one of tho desks in tho house was  an old fashioned gray crock. It was  covered with a snow white cloth, to'  which clung a moist layer of salt. It  was the simple product, "mother's butter" from the farm. Tho jackknives  -were dipped into that crock and the  butter reverently tasted as if it recalled  happy memories of the old home. There  was something in that butter'which no  chemical synthesis could imitate, and  although it spoke no word that sample  of "mother's butter" was eloquent.  Many of those congressmen no doubt  recalled the days when as barefoot  boys they sat with the churn between  their knees trying to make the monotonous splash of the'dasher drown the  shrill whistle of a chum on his way to  the old swimming hole. What an age  it seemed before the little white flecks  appeared on the dasher handle, showing that the butter had "come" and  with it an honorable discharge! And  then at night those biscuit,, with sorghum sirup and "mother's butter"���������oh,  what a charm in such memories���������those  worn hands, that sweetest face, long  since gone to rest!  There was an eloquence in that jar of:  mother's butter���������pure, genuine, wholesome���������which even science, money, art,  political craft and congressional oratory could not overcome.���������National  Magazine.

HOPE you don't haf some more  troubles in  your  house,'' said  the German gro'cer ras the janitor of McMurphy's flats wandered into the store the other day.'  "Well, things are always moving  along with us," was the reply. "When  three women set out to crush each  'other, you ��������� can expect something to  happen every day or two."  "But vhy donjt'dose womens let oop?  It -vhas. no good to - he mad all der  time." . ���������  "You,, don't grasp the situation, Mr.  Washerman," said the janitor as he  shook'his head in a sorrowful way.  ''Here is Mrs. O'Sullivan, whose husband drives''a coal cart; here, is the  Countess Divito, whose husband, sells  'da banan;' here is Mrs. Torriugton,  whose husband owns and" runs'a barber shop., They occupy rooms in the  'same flat. Each one want's the.neighborhood -to look upon her as social  queen of, tho block. It is a direct appeal to pride; vanity and all that; and  each of them would rather perish than  take second place. It's woman's nature, and you .can't change iti"  ."Und vhas dere some rows dis week?"  asked the grocer as he sighed oyer, the.  wickedness of the world--at, large.  "No,tnot a row exactly���������that is, they  didn't fall upon each other "with mop  handles or brickbats. It was the countess who made .the first move in this  instance. She'd been as humble as a  cat for a week or so and the other  women thought they had her nose to  the grindstone; when she opened the,  fight. She adopted a kid from'an orphan asylum. Y'cs, sir; she brings  home a youngster about two years old,  and he was followed by a cartload of  rattle boxes, toy balloons, ABC blocks  and all that."*       ' '  '   -  "But vbat makes her do so?" asked  the grocer. ���������, ^..^ ^  "It's the latest fad out T6u know,,  and she wanted to get ahead of" O'Sul-  "HE KOOTDED UP T1IE ORPHANS.'  15van aud. Torringtbn. She did too.  There were over fifty people to see  that kid the first night he arrived, and  they kept coming for three or four  days after. * He wasn't much to look  at as a kid, being cross eyed and having a stub nose, but he answered the  purpose. Mrs. O'Sullivan, who has five  kids of her own, sat right down and  cried in her anger," and the barber's  wife went sloshing up and dowu the  halls and kicking off the plastering."  "Und don't dey do somet'ing about  'it?"  "You bet they do. It took the two  women about thirty hours to rally  from the blow, and then tney put on  their hats and started for orphan asylums.   Gee whiz!"  "How vhas gee whiz?" asked tbe  solemn faced grocer.  "Gee whiz means that each brought  back a young orphan, and that night  the house was full of baby colic. Nobody got any sleep until after 2 o'clock  in the morning, and there were people  hanging about in front of the flats all  night long. I kept as cool as I could,  but there were times when I thought  my heart trouble would take me off."  "But it vhas all right, ain't it?"*  "No. of course not. It was an even  thing, you see. and you don't suppose  they would stop there, do you? Each  one of those women went out the next  day and adopted another kid. That  made seven for the O'Sullivans, and  Tim went out and got drunk and came  home and busted a bureau. Poor Mrs.  O'Sullivan had to drop out of the fight  after that. If it had been dogs, she'd  have gone theTlimit. but when you get  seven squalling, fighting, kids in a  house you've got about enough. The  countess and the barber's wife each  brought in a third one next day, and  they might have gone up to half a  dozen but for McMurphy. He came  around to see me about the coal, and  as he got within a block of the house  he run up against a crowd.  " 'Is it a fire somewhere?' he asked of  a man. **  "'It's better than that/ said the fellow.  ' " 'Has anybody been killed?'  " 'It's better than that.'  " 'Is it that the sewer has caved in  aud taken a' house with it?' ,  " 'It's  still  better than  that.

There are many forms of heart disease,     some of which manifest themselves   by    symptoms which are mis-  undc-rstood    by     the  sufferer and ascribed to indigestion or some similar  cause,     when    the heart is really af-  fecLod.    The  slightest  derangeni'int' oi  this     important    organ is   extremely  clangorous.    If at times the action of  the pulse is-too" rapid and the heart  beaLs    violently,  resulting  in a' suffocating feeling,  or,  if the heart seems  inclined    to     stop  beating,   the  pulse  becomes     slow,  and you feel' a faint  diz/.y sensation,  you should take the  best course in the world,  and that is'  Lo   take Dr.  Williams'  Pink 'Bills  for  Pole People. t You will find that the  distressing    symptoms  promptly  disappear     and   that    the. heart at all  times     acts     normally.

The Legislature was prorogued on  Saturday the *21st of-June.      The  session   was .a   lengthy  one,   and  characterised - by  scenes  of  turbulence on the part of the Opposition  which were a disgrace to the Legislature.    Every measure introduced-  ,<*. hy the Government to advance the  interests of the Province met with a  persistent hostility, and in conse-.  ���������quence its railway, measures had to  be modified to such an extent, that  . it  may delay the  construction   of  the several lines for which Provincial, aid   was granted   after a   hard  <,  iight.    This, state of -.things will apparently-continue until'the expiry  ���������of the present Legislature.    No less  than 68 Acts received the assent of  the Lieut. Governor.' The most important Acts assented to were  the  several Acts'authorising  the  Government to grant subsidies for the  construction   of   a   railroad   from  - Victoria to, Yellow Head Pass,  the  Xitimaat  railway,   and  the Coast  Kootenay railway.     The Redistribution Act was assented to. earlier  in the session.     The "Act to regulate immigration into B.C." will no  doubt  be dealt  with in  the usual  manner  by the Dominion Government���������disallowed.     Some Acts in  the interests of working men were  also assented to, so it will  be seen  that the .labors of the Legislature  have not been barren of good   results.
