"I  can   not 'make  any  comparison,  ' ���������or this  is the first time I have ever  tasted it."  The young baroness sunk back    in  _ier chair.

The interior of a typical Irish "c'abin  is a "sorry sight. The, floor is of stone,  uncovered except for a few rag mats.  The furniture ' is of tlie poorest,'and  sometimes it" is homemade; tables improvised from boxes, chairs from barrels, and the beds more like stalls for  cattle, with their straw ma1tresses and  bundle of rags for 'tlothing. ��������� A slow,  dull 'fire of peat gives a cheerless  warmth to the room.

In" that delicious moment, just  ; before it'finds its final resting place for  tho night, it is most enchanting. Over  everything is an unspeakable spell of  peace and quiet, and a warm glow casts  into shadow unsightly objects and surrounds' them 'with a mystic halo of  golden light.

A writer in London Truth says that  in the early part of thercighleesth century, the London theaters opened at G  o'clock, and as it was therefore difficult for playgoers ,to arrive punctually  and obtain seats many of theni sent  footmen or hired men >from the streets  tos secure places for them. These sat in  the seats until those who bad sent them  eume, and'the custom prevailed until  l'.GG, w-hen the system now in -force  \ias adopted. "A footman used to be"  sent early- to take places and keep  them by the' simple 'but effectual plan  Of silting on them till his,masters and*  mistresses arrived.. Such ��������� a practice  would now be considered'an intolerable  nuisance, but people^in those days were  much less .particular.' and appear to  .have thought .nothing,of .sitting for an  "act or two cheek by jowl with a fiuu-  ky or, wprse, with a "vagabond picked  up in the street." An allusion, to the custom occurs in. Fielding's "Miss Lucy In  Town,"-act. 1, scene 2," and Pepys in  his *J_Dia_y" occasionally mentions having hircdxa' boy in the "streets to occupy,  a< seat for him.'   ''* > ,     \       '-  5".

They were undoubtedly  connected   with   China   and  with   the  land,to the north of this at no very remote period, geologically speaking, and  therefore,  like Great Britain and Ireland, are scientifically classified as "recent continental islands."

Qceer  Japanese  Cms-torsi.  ' In some villages in Japan robbers are  tried and convicted, by "ballot. Whenever a robbery is committed the ruler  of the hamlet summons tbe entire male  population and requests them to write  on a slip of paper the name of the person they suspect as having committed  tho crime. The one receiving the largest number of ballots is declared duly  "elected'' and is accordingly hanged.  This system, like all others, has its peculiar advantages. It insures the punishment of somebody for every robbery  committed, whereas under the system  in vogue in most civilized countries in  nine cases out of ten no punisbment is  inflicted on anybody for the crime. Of  course they may not "elect" the guilty  person, but dispose of some other character equally, bad. ���������  strengthens the digestion and invigorates the whole system so that  the nutriment is all drawn from the  food.

Suitability In   Dress.  Suitability in dress is a great test of'  breeding. Any one can buy a costly  gown and huddle it on in seaspn and  out of season. It is a great art to learn  how to put on a dress well and how., to  look well in it, and many a woman who  spends little has the reputation of good  dressing simply because she knows,  how to put on and wear hor clothes  well. Many books have been written  on this subject, but it is the natty, tidy,  painstaking woman who always comes  out' triumphant, and if she has a carriage she can dress in much smarter  clothes thau her sisters who are not so  fortunate.

Lewis.]  PEAKING 'about cocktails,  suh," said Colonel Bunker as  'he sipped lovingly at his mini  julep''and smacked his" lips  In approval���������"speaking about cocktails  and their influence on the politics of  'the country, let mo tell yo'fja little incident. It was a few years after the  ���������wall, suh, and just after the no'th had  introduced the cocktail to the south.  It was a new drink to us, but we took  ���������it up very liberally. General Bob'  Taylor was running for governor of  this state that year, with a thousand  chances to one in his favor. 1 was to  meet him here at this'hotel to talk  ovah matters, and I came out on this  'KURNEL   BUNKER,    IT   GIVES    ME   U_TAI_  LOYED pleasure to .observe that yo',  * ARE a caitiff."  ' veranda to find him drinking a cocktail. ' It was his" fo'th  while waiting  for me. -, v    *     . <���������  1 '"Howdy, kurnel ?'.��������� says he as I sits  _ down.     ', "     J    '" ',, ^  '. . " 'Howdy, Bob?' says I as I "wonders  1   what he is drinking?  He orders another  for himself .and one f or v ine,/ind we  felf to  talking  about 'the wah.-   tBob  . Taylor was a niajah, suh, and he"was  a brave .and gallant man. V-We hadn't  'talked long when he says:  "'Kurnel  Bunker,   yo'   were > at  the  * battle of Malvern Hill, I believe?'    ,  " 'I was, suh.'  " 'And yo' must have seen the charge  I made with my regiment on the six  guns in the center. I had only 600  men under me, and the enemy numbered fully 5,000, but wo started with  a cheer, suh, and we swept forward  . with yells, suh, and.though I lostu400  men I brought back the guns.' ���������  '"Bless yo', Majah Bob!' I says.  'But yo've got things mixed up. I  made that charge myself. Any history  of the wah will give me the credit.'  " 'But I must have done it.'  " 'But yo' are mistaken.'  ���������"The majah seemed lost in thought  for awhile, and I was wondering if he  didn't feel well', when he .woke up and  said: *  " 'Kurnel Bunker; yo' was at the  battle of Gaines Mill, I reckon?'  " 'I was, suh.'  *' 'Do yo' remember when the enemy  massed to  crush   our left  and came  "���������down like a wave of the sea?'  " 'I do, suh. It looked to be all day  with us just then.' l  " 'And it would have been, kurnel,  it would have been if I had not put  myself at the head of my regiment aud  led a living wedge against the enemy  and broken him. Yo' may remember  that I received the thanks of our general then and there.'  " 'Majah Bob,' says I as I began to  breathe hard, 'there are no less than  ten histories of the wah out already  and mo' coming, and every one of  those histories will prove tbat I myself led that living wedge and saved  the left wing of our army. I was mentioned in general dispatches and special orders, suh, and if I could have  brought myself to leave my brave boys  I could have had command of a brigade.'  "With that I got up and walked  about and wondered what had got.into  the man, and perhaps it was live min-  \ites before he said:  "'Kurnel Bunker, am I mistaken in  thinking yo' were present at the battle  of--Chance.Horsv.ille?'  " 'Yo' are not, suh,' I replied. 'It has  been said that I personally brought on  that battle.'  " 'If yo' were there, kurnel, yo' must  have seen me put myself at the head  of. the Silver brigade and roll the enemy's right flank up like so much paper. Yes, suh, yo' must have seen it  with yo'r own eyes, and no doubt yo'  were one of the thousands who cheered  me after the charge was over.' .  " 'Majah Bob Taylor,' says I somewhat stiffly, 'I am not a humorist. I  seldom smile, and I never laugh. .Do  yo' mean it for a joke when yo' take  the credit of-things I did myself? If  so, sut, let me tell yo' that I don't appreciate it.' ��������� .   ,  " 'Kurnel Dunker,' says he in a slow  and deliberate fashion and mpaning to  .insult mjT very name, 'it gives me unalloyed pleasure to observe that yo'  are a caitiff!'  "-���������Suh!    Suh!' t   "  " 'A caitiff, a.coward and a liar!'  "Gad. suh, but I don't know "why I  didn't take him by the'throat''then and  thero and throttle the lifeout of him.  I   did  start  to   do ' It.   I   believe,   but  t <r    ' k  caught  myself  in  time.     It  was  five  min.ut.*. before I could speak, and then  iny words v.vr.  few., I simply told him'  Lu _;;j<_.t<a \isir I'inm my second and  sliodp a way.    As I turned the co'nar I  met  General.

Of co'se he was willing to act ap-my second, and in lit'tecn  minutes   it   had1  been   arranged   that  Majah Bob and I were to meet at suii-  ris_.     Thirteen   previous   meetings  o_  the   sort,   with   my   escutcheon   un -  stained,  made  it an almost' everyday  Qlfair for me���������that is, I ate and slept  as usual, and no-onoTsaw any change  in me.   1 had differed with men, suh���������  diifered with them on 'astronomy; geography or the curl of a.pig's tail and  gone to the field to uphold my honah,  by simply pinking them,* but here w.as  the grossest insult of my life.    I had  been called a caitiff, a coward and a  liar, and my mind was made up.to kill*  Majah Bob  in   his tracks.    I  Relieve  that certain persons called upon liim  during the, evening .and'sought to induce" him "to <- apologize? but  he  was  firm in his "refusal and" rather strange  in his derneanor.,  Morning came, and I  .sauntered to the grounds.,*,L never hur-~  'ry in such cases, suh, nor do I-let any  thoughts of death trouble me' 'When  I reached the spot, I was as cool as ice'  and as calm as a'duck pond.

May I never bear the hum of grape-*  shot   again <if   he  didn't   come   along  with  two  niggers, ' who,  had  bags  of  potatoes on their backs, and he was  going, to  show  them  where to! plant  them! *   /v       ">\   ���������    ������    .,     r  1 " 'Howdy, Kurnel Bunker?' says he  as he stops to-shake hands andJ offer  me his plug. r -. \  " 'I am here on this field of,'honahrto  kill yo', Majah, Bob,' says I as I folds  my arms,and steps back.

Under the circumstances the duel was  off, of co'se, but something else was  off too. It was plain to us that the  cocktail had been introduced to the  south to upset her whole political system and prevent the phenix bird from,  rising, and we swore to abjure it, suh,  to nip it in the bud and drive it  back whence it came.

"James," she called, "drive  slowly past that man who is selling  photographs.' Drive as slowly as you  can,' and drive close to the crowd."  In' a moment the hansom had wheeled and was retracing its route past the  street corner, .where a muscular looking young,_ellow was handing out unmounted, photographs as rapidly as, he  'could make change. Miss Gardner lean-  -ed on  the apron of the  hansom'and'  i '*  eagerly scrutinized the face as the cab  slowly 'passed, but there was no interruption in the patter that' helped dispose of his wares.

There was a vexed ex-4  presslon on her pretty face as she murmured, "How can grown up men be so  silly!"     ���������    -  /That  evening* at  7 .Gerald .Corsey,  Immaculate in evening dress,'presented  himself' at-   the'   Gardner, residence,',  where   he  was  received   by   Priscilla  and, her father, the Hon. John Alden,  Gardner.   -The girl's eyes were dancing as she*gave him her hand, but her"  "Good S evening!'^ was in the demurest  of voices.   Perhaps she was in awe of  the   Honorable   John.

The older Miss Gardner  had a bad cold and was afraid to talk.  Priscilla was in a maddening mood���������  bo superior and dignified, with a new  touch of condescension in her voice.  Could she have heard anything? A  hot flush rose to the man's forehead.  And what was she humming-now���������-  "Oh, What a Difference In the Morning?" Decidedly she had heard. He  could not see how her eyes were still  dancing, and he leaned back; in his  corner savage and miserable.  At the opera the ladies, like true Bos-  tonians, devoted themselves strictly to  the performance. Gerald tried to follow their example, but his eyes wandered back to the study of Priscilla's  pure, clear cut profile. She. was radi-'  antly beautiful tonight, with yet that  new touch of superiority .that seemed  to place her far beyond his reach. Why  had he ever dreamed that she was different from most girls and cared nothing for mere appearances? He had  been mistaken���������she, too, set up money  for a god.  Priscilla's half laughing, half ironical, sallies died away under the influence of his moodiness. It was a relief  to them both when Mr. Gardner appeared on the scene. He insisted on  ���������Corsey's going home to supper with  them.  At the .table the two men talked Harvard. Priscilla listened quietly. (As  ' she noted how strange and constrained  Corsey's manner was she came to a  sudden determination.' The (Conversation'had drifted to the subject of club  initiations, when she broke in eagerly.  ','1 think," she < said, "that I saw a  novitiate undergoing his ordeal this  morning.

But what xrwuld she think when she  knew the truth? His voice was very  grave as he said, "So you saw me?"'  "Yes, and \ have begunto think that  you did not like my seeing you.'" -���������  Corsey flusn'ed slightly. The Honorable John was looking interested.  "Wliat society did you join, Mr. Corsey?" ��������� ' '���������' ��������� , - < , . ' , \ ��������� t  The younger man,squared his shoulders. * "To" be perfectly frank"with you,  it was not an initiation; it was just  that I needed the money." *  .Priscilla ,gave V little, exclamation  and stared down at the bunch of violets that he,had'sent her that afternoon. They must have cost���������oh, so  much.'.' And/he.'had needed the money!  The look 'that' she turned' oh Corsey  was different from any 'that 'she had  . vouchsafed' ;him . that evening. Perhaps it gave him courage to face the  Honorable .John.        '' 'y ���������>[ v   -  " "You did not'give me to understand  that you were'trying to work'your way,  through;; college  when���������when we  had  our   little" talk,"   Sir.

"When I induced dad," he' said, "to  let me come to Harvard, where he. had  graduated, instead'of ^going to some  western college, he objec.ecl because he  said he couldn't keep an ej-e on.me.

I might have passed it off as  an initiation, but I don't want to sail  under false colors."  He ended almost defiantly and was  surprised when the Honorable John  reached across the' tablei and shook  him heartily by the hand.     -    ���������  "Well, done, my boy!" he cried. "I  wish I had a son like you.",'  And Priscilla���������why, Priscilla's eye������  were 6hining with what looked suspiciously like tears.  When slie had said "good night" and  Corsey had held her hand for one long,  delicious moment,1 the two men sat  smoking quietly in the firelight The  Honorable John at length broke the silence.  "Some time ago, Mr. Corsey," he  said, "you asked my daughter's hand  in marriage, and 1 said I must have  time to think it over. I must confess  that I did not see the matter in a very  favorable light at first, but tonight I  have changed my mind. You can have  Priscilla���������that is, if she will have you."  And Corsey knew that he had passed  his initiation.  an artistic pleasure and a holiday function, even though it be at the graveside-  or in the throes of a revolution.

"How many of you?" cried the cocka-  swain to the_Norwegian captain.  "Twenty-two."     '  The cockswain counted them as they  hung on the ship's side and said:\  "I only see twenty-one. ��������� Not a man  shall leave the ship until you bring the  odd one on deck."  The odd one, a disabled man, had  been left below to his fate. He was  brought up, and all were taken aboard  the lifeboat pnd safely landed on the  beach.

The birds that completed,,  in the recent Trans-Alpine race from'  Rome attracted much attention; the  difficulties of their long fight may be  appreciated by tW fact that only 10  per cent, of the-pigeons'entered- in  the race succeeded in reaching home.  The world's champion, which : has  flown from Lisbon to Brussels, a.dis*-  tance of 1,100 miles, was on view,  as well as the double-breasted champion, who has won the 600 mile race  from the Shetland Islands two years  in succession. This bird holds the  record for a speed of 'fifty'miles an  hour.  M  \4  ',*;���������  U;4  M  ������  a  id  V; +1  THE CMBERUP NEWS.  CUMBERLAND, B. C.

A theory, si aril ing in its character, is held by some who(might be
exptcted to have sufficient grounds
for their views, explaining the present labor strikes now agitating the
country. ~It ascribes the cau*-e of
the trouble to the -copper .rust of
1 New York.
This.organizxtion, in an endeavor
t" keep copper at its pre-ent prices,
decided to cut off the British Columbia supply . In order to effectively do so it is said negotiations
weie entered into by certain leaders
of the Western Federation ot Min
ers, and that in return for a subsidy
trouble was fomented, which resulted
in the closing of the Fernie mines in
the hope of cutting off the coke and
coal supply of the smelteis.      This

thought the Government would lend
assistance to the movement.     The
Government was asked to ceuti arize
the   rural tchools  and teach   high
school, cuniculum in su��..h schools.

schools could be carried   on  much
cheaper if they were centralized.   A
resolution was proponed  favouring
the   establishment   of   an   experimental farm on Vancouver Inland.

promiseu to oucceed,  but  unexpec- i inttntion of ihe Government to give
tedJy the interior smelteis began to
deiive their supply of coke and coal
from Dunsmuir's mines.    To offset
this the C-P.R. strike was fomented
and   the carriage of the fuel"frvm
VHncouve'r,Island was cut off,     At
the same time the offices of the subsidized  agitators   in   the   Western
Federation' of  mines were enlisted,
so it is said, to work up dissatisfaction   among   the   workers   of   the
Dunsmuir mines. ,
i Indications  point  to Mr   Dunsr
muir holding such ��. theory.     American agitators are held to be 'he
whole  trouble- in. the camp at Extension which   helps   to   bear this
theory out.
Mr Dunsmuir stands in a unique
position to frustrate su vh a scheme,
if this is at the bottom of the trouble

miners has never succeeded to any'
