Mr ^ Palmer   of   Victoria,   Mr  Cunningham  of   Vancouver,   and  Mr Earl of {Lytton should each  in  his "own horticultural' district   attend the leading   exhibitions   and  render all'possible assistance.     It  ^ was subsequently arranged between  Messrs* Palmer   and Cunningham  that both should be present to assist  at Npw Westminster  fir<������t,i as   the  date of the Victoria show wan   fixed  00 as not to conflict   with  that   oi  New Westminster and that as soon  as the New Westminster   function  was concluded   both   these   gentlo-  mpi) should proceed to Victoria   to  render a like service there.  For reasons which are well  known, the directors changed tbe  date of the Victoria exhibition so  that the arrangements which had  been made for attendance at both  exhibition* nere found to be quite  impossible. Under the circumstances the most practical solution  of the difficulty was for Mr Palmer  to take Victoria and Mr Cunningham, New Westminster. This was  done and it is believed that each  in his separate field rendered loyal  service to the exhibitions..

The  position of His Honor deprives him  of the privilege of making such explanations as   would   satisfy   the  public at large and the directors of  tbe Royal Agricultural  Society  in  particular, that in no sense can  he  be charged   with   sectionalism   or.  unfriendly feeling towards'-fche  objects of the society's exhibitions;/'  -���������. o������������������������������������   A Cbirese was killed    last week;   ,  in No. 6 by a fall of rock.

' It Is Cheaply Done. '
.   When I first got on to the new wrinkle in raising onions; I found that 2,000
plants were about all that a novice
was able to put into'the ground in one
day/and,, as wTe made,.the rows one
foot apart' and  set * the' 'plants three
inches apart, I calculated that to1 set
the 175,000 plants on one acre would
cost not less than $50, even with cheap
labor.    But now' that we ���'liave "the
hang"  of  the  transplanting business
and with ^the*'ground"in as7good order
as it'should'be we can set double that'
number with*Justus'much easef"' We
now* plant 4;"inches(in^the rows and
make ther rows 14 inches apart, and the,
work ��ot planting, an acre represents
less than 30 days'< labor, ��� an outlay of
less than $20 to $257   * ���;    '�����   '   ,  .��� J
The'point is.tb have/the soil very
fine and', mellow,, so that' the planting
can be done with therfingers alone and
without the use of a dibber.   The work
,/then progresses very rapidly.   Pick up
a plant with the left hand an'd place

��� People say there is no such thing as.a,
glass snake, *hut 1hey are. mistaken.: It
is true 'this; reptile is not very common,
aiid is becoming more and more rare,, hut
it is still occasionally to. be. found. -The
peculiarity of" the snake is its joints are
so looKviy connected that if you strike it
with a stick it breaks into half a dozen
,or more pieces. The old superstition was
���'that the pieces would reunite i�� let alone.
There isuo truth about this part, of the
'story;''though, like many oth'e- creatures
of the lower order, this snake k believed
to have the power of reproducing a portion of its tail should a party be broken
cff. But when thoroughly broken up by s
hard blow the joint snake, as they call it
in the country, is quite dead, and the
ease with which it is killed accounts tor
its rapid extinction.���Exchange;
abundant it is said to make good hay
and pasture which is readily eaten by
stock. It has not.yet been extensively
Introduced into cultivation.
' In the .government grass garden at
Washington this grass made luxuriant
growth all through a dry summer, producing excellent hay. An aftermath
seven inches high of fair quality for
pasturage > was produced which was
not injured until severe frosts, when
the leaves all dried up.
It is reported as doing well at "Walla
Walla, Wash., producing an abundance
of seed, and that it is quite as valuable as the blue grama. Iu tho hills of
central and western Iowa and parts of
Nebraska it is highly valued by farmers for hay, as it cures readily, and
even when cut late in the season tho
leaves retain their freshness longer
than many of the other wild grasses in
those regions. It will withstand long
periods of drought and is so deeply
rooted that it is not easily injured by
grazing. Good reports also come from
southern states. .
An Anecdote of Greeley.
A' call ,was once'made by a dozen
noted artists of the Academy of De-
s:a,u, in 1S70, on Horace Greeley. Mr.
Clarence Cook, then the art critic of
The Tribune, had been saying things
about tbe academy exhibition which
caused the venerable chiefs of that establishment to boil 'with indignation.
Oue day a committee went' down to
The Tribune to complain. Mr. Greeley,
having listened in silence to what these
gentlemen had to say, looked up from
his desk, a twinkle, in his eye, and
said, witb bis peculiar nasal falsetto:
"Gentlemen, I Judge from your remarks that Mr. Cook's articles are
widely read. They will therefore continue to be printed in The Tribune.

The Helpfnl Hen.
The city  boy in  the country also haa
"experiences."    The Portland Argus tells
of a little lad who by spending tho summer on a.farm learned many things.'
It was a new experience for the little
fellow, and everything was delightfully
unfamiliar. He found out for the first
time: that hens made eggs, nnd this
knowledge filled, him with a desire to see
one of them at work.
Being a patient,-.waiter, the lad finally
had his wish gratified, and, exultantly
seizing the product-of the cackling fowl,
he marched into the house with his prize.
"Let. me have it," ��� said the farmer's
wife, "and I'll cook it for your dinner."
"Oh, I guess the hen cooked it al?
right," replied Master Carl.   "It's warm."

and he was to send me eggs from hi.s
best birds.   These 45 egg's wero set the
20th of April, 1900, under some game
bena which I borrowed from a neighbor.   These bens were tho worst things
to break eggs I ever had any experience   with,   for   when   hatching   day
cam* (May 11) there only remained 35
eggs in tho nestu.   From the 35 eggs 30
strong,   healthy chicks  were hatched.
Not satisfied with breaking eggs, these
pesky came hens trampled two chirks
to,death In tbe nest, which left  mc
with only 28 chicks, and I raised the.
whole 28 to maturity.   Now. to show
the profit  I  have  made on  these  23
Chicks to date (April 20. 1001)7 I quote
frbnMuy poultry account" book.
After culling out and selling surplu3
birds I had left nine females and two
cockerels, which were kept for breeding   purposes.   , Following   is   the   ao

room will keep quite an even temperature, but If the room warms up to HO
VS 00 degrees the regulator will be of
little use, aa the live eggs, after the
first ten days.'will radiate a great deal
of heat, and that with the heat of the^
lamp and tho extra heat of the room
will overheat the eggs.' Sometimes we
have to extinguish the light and on real
warm days open the machine to keep
tbe temperature even. We have learned that It Is not necessary to add moisture to help the hatch, as there is
enough moisture In the egg to hutch It
It the machine ls operated right, but a
great deal depends on the ventilation.
Too much ventilation will toughen the

Beat In  Brooder*.
In tbe past there has  been quite a
I controversy as to top or bottom bent
1 for brooders.   This. 1 believe, has been
settled in favor of top beat.   The heat
: from the  natural mother comes from
. tbe, top,   which   Is  just  sufficient   to
. warm the floor of the coop. /A brooder
. made so that the beat descends upon
'the backs of the chieks will lend sufficient heat to warm the floor and corresponds,    therefore,    with    the   natural
method.    Brooders constructed so as to
bave the beat come from underneath
the floor are very apt to keep the floor
too hot and consequently will overheat
tne chicks and  leavev their backs  too
cold, but whatever style of brooder is
used   the   chicks  should   be   carefully
watched on the start to see that there
are not too many in together, for 1 believe this to be the principal cause of
finding dead chicks In tbe morning.--V.

It creeps upon ns EofUier than sno~, <
Obtrudes itself, insinuates its white
,   And vapory di ift until, like late twilight,
The high noon seems, around, abeve, below.
Through tbe thick veil the sudden gas jets glow
Faintly, as if "they fain would sink from sight,
' And, haife, their notes of %vaming and affright
/ Shrilly afar the dolorous whistles blml
The languid water laps about tbe quays,
And here and there a solitary mast
Rifts like a spectral finger the wan gloom.
God pity those upon the broad, blind seas!
Tonight how many a one will sail his last,
Driving e'en now, undreaming, upon doom!

"Whethen," said Celia, as she walked
beside Larry Ilalpin in the shady woods
���    of Carrigrath,  ','1 don't think ye're half
as good a hand at coortin as the quality."

"It's bad to be set for time like that,",

"--way the quality docs it."

"But, shure," saidjfGelia, "there are
things the quality .* do" that we might
imitate. Now, I seen" Misther Lambert
the other day do a-,thing that I read av
often in the story books. I saw him put
a ring on Miss Ilosy's finger."
"Blur an 'ouns!" cried Larry, searching
vigorously in his pockets. "If it's,a ring
that'll mek us be doin the thing in quality
style, be the lar, we shan't be amiss av
that." He produced a little ring, after
first turning out of his pockets a pipe, a
prayer book, a pack of cards and a quantity of hay. "Here. Celia, take this grand
ring from me.vTessy Hanahan there below gave it to me. She got it in waa av
'thim penny prize packages."
With great solemnity Larry invested
Celia with this testimony of his homage
and fidelity. While the ceremony was in
progress, Celia blushed and assumed an
air of coyness, faithfully copied ��� from
Miss Rosy, who had so recently been a
participator in a similarly happy transaction. She gazed with delight at the
ring, the diamonds of which blazed magnificently in the rays of the setting sun.
"It's rael good av yo to do all this for
my sake," said Celia, reproducing a phrase
from her favorite novelette.
Larry scratched his head in frantic
search of an appropriate quality reply.
"In throth it is, an divil a lie in it." he
said, unable to think of any better remark.
"Shure, that's not a properly quality
answer at all, Larry," said Celia reproachfully. "Yo should put yer band
on yer heart���not there, shure, that's yer
chesht; aye, that'll do���an say 'Celia,' ses
ye, 'that's a mere nothin. "I'd pluck the
stars out av the sky for yer sake,' ses
ye, 'an lay thim on yer pure white
��� brow!'"
, "Begor, that's an iligant spache. Av
coorse,'I'd give ye .anything I have," said
Larry, laying his hand on his heart in
pursuance of his tutor's instructions. "The
'ring is nothin, Celia: it's only wan av'the
eo'ort that's found in penny prize packages, an"���
��� "Dear, oh. dear. Larry, ye're terrible!
Shure the're'd be no vartue in it if*it was
chape. Ye must make out that ye've sacrificed everything, to buy me this ring to
show yer devotion, d'ye mind?    It's not
, the ring itsel'; it's the love it shows in the
thrnbbie ye put over ycseP gettin it."
"Tn'bbe shure." said Larry penitently.
"What a gom I am, all out.' Now. thin,
Celia. I've been through fire an wather
nn crossed bulges an ditches an gripes to
git at that ring for ye. Thin, whin I seen
it at the-bottom'av the lake there bejow.
about a thousand feet, I dived in an. picked it up wid me teeth at the peril av git-
tin a sevare cowld."
"That's not had at all," said Celia en
couragingly.     Larry."   thus    stimulated,
proceeded, with increased vigor:
"Tubbe shure. But that's nothin���
nothin at al! to what" I would do for ye
if I wor put to :t."       "���"*- "- '   - '
Celia hung her head and in every way
comported herself like any other young
lady in receiptcof a declaration of love as
depicted on the front page of-family novelettes. ', " ' V
"But what am I to be at next?" said
Larry. ���    \ .      ���   ' >    - ,
�� "Ye must thrimble ipd violent love." so
as to make me believe that ye'd die for
me sake." ��� \
"I  see."  said  Larry,  making laudable
efforts to excite a tremor in his substaa-7
tlal frame.    VMusha, wouldn't I 'die Tor
yer. sake, alanna?"
.'���Stop!", cried Celia., "Ye mustn't say
alanna.    That isn't'quality, ye know." '
"Well,.np.what?" ��� '
"Ye must sayrme darlint or some sich'."
"Very, well.    Now", Celia, I'm ready to
die for ye, me darlint or some sich, an"
even when I'.ve done that no fear "ay me
to stop, there itsel'.    'I'd go on wid me

Celia looked 'up with a" languishing air
and a deep sigh. ' , ' ��
"Oh, -Larry," she said, drooping her
head liko a swan in the last stages of dissolution, "this is so suddint! 'This is

"Be   aisy ' now,    I^a'rry:   that's   thrue

'  "As I was sayin whin I was intherrupt-,

It has quitc'startled me out av me, sivin,

"Not at all, man.    It wouldn't be quality for me to fall on the flu re.'   I'd slide

"Och, melia, murther, it's terrible miserable it is .'altogether. Do they nivir
laugh when they're*.it it?"   '.
"Laugh,   is  it?"   cried  Celia,   shocked.
"Av  coorse not.    That ud be ag'in 'the

sign  ye're  not in  'arnest.    'Ye must  be

Larry looked at Celia, aghast.
"Now, look here, Celia," he cried fiercely.    "I'll go off to Ameriky nest week.
I'll go right away from here an I'll nivir
"Splendid!" cried Celia, clapping ber
hands. "Begor, Misther Lambert couldn't
do it a bit betther."
"Oh,'that's not quality coortin! I'm
downright in 'arnest now, so I am."
"Grand, intirely!" said Celia, thoroughly delighted  at  the -wonderful   improvement her lover had,made in his "coortin"-
odu cation.
"Goodby to iye, Celia, an I hope y^'ll
be gettin a quality man who'll be able to
say all thim. things ye've been tachin me
widout feelin a born idjut."
Larry turned on his heel and strode toward the, road. Celia stared after him,
a bewildered look in her eyes. Then an
ash gray pallor crept over her face. She
hurried after Larry and took his arm.
"Arrah, Larry," she said, "shure ye
wouldn't lave me like that?" .
Larry, looked down into, the appealing
little face and took her hands'.
"Shure," j-e're not talkin quality now,
Celia, bekase if ye are I shan't stay wid
ye a second."
"No, I am not, Larry; I'm talkin from
the bottom av me heart tbi* minyet."
"Musha, I couldn't stand that ramash

powers of biting are not formidable, and
his fore paws are so weak as to seem almost, rudi.rnepliiry m.em,bcrs of little use.

The diligence was in waiting at the
door of the hotel at Coir. A'tall, slim
figure appeared in the doorway, an uplifted face lightly framed in erratic tresses
lof-brown* gold hair crowned by a sombey!
Tarn O'Shanter traveling hat. VThe girl
.stood confronting an 'iron gray'.'world
built upfof mountains and stormclouds.
'"Tieally  going to  face the' weather?"'
said a voice from behind her, and a chilly
looking lady came' forward, rubbing her
hands in ��elf congratulation. ' 7 .
Elizabeth���that- was the name in the
copy of Browning in her bag���thought of
the'number <of guineas-in her purse and
of'hpr, promise to the'Princess-Pompilia"
to arrive at,tho Palazzo rompilrani at a
certain moment.     .   , 1 , *
"I am really going," she said. "A storm
on the Alps will' be rather glorious."
She got into the diligence and put her1
face out to smile goodby'. Strong brows,
an intelligent, inquisitive line of slender
nose and a mouth with elastic" curves
suggested that this must have been a
very piquant face beforo the shadow'of
those, or other, stormclouds'fell on it".
Only, yesterday she was a queen in her
own world, queen of her father's heart
and home. Now she was suddenly dethroned and bankrupt, .. her girJhood
crushed under the ruins of .her father's
fortunes and the tragedy of his. death.
She knew that like things had happened
before in the world she had lived in.
Elizabeth opened 'her bag and rummaged for a magazine, but it was the
Browning that came to her hand. It was
not cmerely as Browning that sho was
taking the book across "the Alps with
���her, yet sho wp.uld. hardly have acknowledged that it was lor tlie handwriting of
the word Elizabeth in the front page corner. She held the book close, though sho
did not open it, and her desire for the
magazine appeared forgotten.
Night came down early; the weather
darkness hastened its fall.. At a point in
the road a long whistle signaled, the driver of the diligence, who thereupon, came
to a stop. A man opened thp^ dppr of the
vehicle, made a step to get.in, but drew
back again.
"Only one lady?" he said in English.
"Then I shall not intrude. ' I shall do
very well outside, driver."
Elizabeth felt guilty, though relieved.
As the vehicle swung on and's'he lay'back
in her corner she was disturbcd'.jby^an.
echo, something in the ring :of- the1-'voice
that had spoken at the door out of the
darkness. She had pushed the Browning
away from her. Now the storm came
down in earnest, a dry scattering, wind,
freezing as the breath of icebergs. ��� The
diligence rocked and swung. It seemed
to her that, at any moment coach, and
horses and freight might ride, off: on the
gale down the precipice.
As the night wore on and the cold grew
more intense she beard the outside traveler C9uglmig,.;the man who hadocqualright'
,'hvit3v',hei'se.rf7'to the shelter,;,of an inside
''s.'eat."77.Was7she;goiug to be so selfish or so
p'rnd fell-' 'as.;to''give, over ...this vffello.va: creature to suffering, perhaps danger,, fo.r; the;
gratification of her preferences forVprivacy ? She watched her Opportunity and
communicated with the driver. ������
"Will you tell the gentleman,"'she said
in-German, "that the lady requests bim
to come inside of the coach?"
A  safe halting place was chosen,-and
the outside  passenger got into the com-,
fortable  interior.--He thanked  the  lady
and  retired into an opposite corner, and.
his few words were spoken in  German.
There  was  no mistake about the" voice
this time. Wliat bad seemed a ..mere
echo on'the^wind from" her Aown brain
had become'a ^-e'ality:' The impossible,
had ^ come to pass.' She smiled a little
pained smile in the'impenetrable darkness of her place and.her wrappings. So

wakeful. 'The storm was unabated. One
or two wild looking sta'rs looked through
rents, in the masses of wind cloud. >.A

The man woke, stirred, sat up and struck
a match.     . '
"Excuse me," he said. "I want to see
what o'clock it is."        < ,
'Taken by" surprise, Elizabeth allowed
her open eyed face to be revealed by tho
puny .(larae, which also lit up for the moment the clean cut features' of the fellow traveler, a resolute mouth and chin,

depths than do the eyes of most women. |

Here the two minds, looking out, of mutual darkness, while the wind roared'and,
the diligence,shook and swung above tho
precipices, saw both the same scene���an
English'garden in the flush of,JuiiC(.and
-high"yeyv hedges with banks'of brilliant
flowers heaped,against them.   , ',,-'
-There was a girl* in a white dress in a
whiter heat of passion and'a man who'
had'accused herTof.coquetry standing a
little away from her with quiet eyes and
a determined mouth." Manifestly it was
a lovers' quarrel, with the ending that is(
usual when the love is only ou one side,
and the other belligerent<hasrihe' advantage of being without a heart. Each of
the minds in the coach" summed up th*
evidence in this manner and arrived at
an identical conclusion, v. '   <
' "Arid yotir cousin" who' has just got his
jacket iu the Horse artillery?" said the
man.    "Has he worn the jacket much?"
"Jim has distinguished himself in Af-
.rica," said Elizabeth.;. "Not your part of
Africa," she added with a slightly wicked touch of scorn which she knew to be
"I "understand, by the way, in my long
absence many, changes among fiiends
have taken place. I" havo perhaps blundered in addressing you by your maiden
name." ' '   '
��� "I have incumbered myself with no
new styles or, titles. -And you���for I am
not a reader of the papers (a fib, for had
sho not read every review of his book!)���
you remind me that-it is probable that
you are no longer a bachelor."
"Writing a boolt iD central Africa does
not, run to wooing."
i "But your savages.who are above the
average of the civilized?. You may never^
meet with such another opportunity."
"I intend to return to that society. I
have only made a flying visit hotA; to arrange with my publishers."
The conversation flagged; so did the
storm. A blaze of. stars lit up the heavens and made a gleam even within the
coach by which the travelers could jointly discern each-' other. Elizabeth sat weM
back-in her corner.- The man presently
made an effoit to carry on the conversation.
"I know something of the Princess
Pompilia, an agreeable woman. You
will find the Italians of that class interesting people. Yon are particularly fortunate.!' -
"You think I might write a book about
themi" versus  the  savages,"   said   Eliza-

His last) words  were, UI am sorry I could not see  my father." Death was instantaneous, 1,700 volts' of electricity  being thrown into,his b.-dy.
