Nanaimo, Nov. 14.���������C 011 s 1 d e r a b 1 e  alarm was felt Saturday morning, when  ii became known that an explosion had  taken place in'' No. 1 shaft, and that  manager McGregor and seven others  were severely burned. Just as the afternoon shiTt was quitting-,-work it was "dis-  covered that a feeder or out-burst of gas  at an incline had been ignited. An effort was made to extinguish the flames  when first discovered, but without avail.  Wm. McGregor, manage.r was at once  notified ofthe fire, with Jas. Price, Geo.  Lee, Peter, High, Donald Ferguson,  Fred Hurst, Ed/Edmonds, and H. Shep-  pard went down as qtiicklyas* possible to  to the scene and at' once proceeded 'to  work in the fire. While engaged in this  work, the gas again burst into "flames,  striking all the men above named, bur ed  them badly <a"bout the face and hands.  Geo. Lee, in -addition to being burned  was thrown against the coal and had his  leg broken above the .knee. His afs'oci-  ates endeavored to lake him out of. danger and carried him a- long distance,  even while they ��������� were suffering untold  agony.from their burns; but the after  damp overtaking tnerri, and being completely exhausted they had to leave him.  Mr. McGregor on reaching the surface  notified the fire bosses, who went to the"  bottom of the shaft and rescued Lee.  A.11 the injured men were taken to their  homes. Latest reports are to the effect  that all will recover.  Morgan Harris, a fire boss, while on a  tour of inspection this morning, was  struck b"y a blast and huiled against the  wall., He is injured about-the face and  was in a weak condition this afternoon.  The Inspector ot Mines has ordered  the mine closed for a day or two. The  fire is still burning, but is now -under  control.

ET(_0  Old Hagar ' now placed in Maneline's  hands the package, which was found to  contain her mother's most valuable  jewels, and the tear-stained journal,  which tho girl seated herself to poruso,  with sorrowful a wo.  The lust pit-go noing turned, and the  sad life of her mother fully revealed,  Madeline bowed her head find wept bit-  torly, heedless *of tho attornpti of old  Hagar to comfort her, until the name-of  hor stop-father upon tho old woman's lips  brought hor suddenly to, her foot, tho  T tears still on her cheeks, but her eyes  flashing, and on her countenance a look  that might have neon a revolation to  John Arthur had that gentleman been  there to see. Taking tho old woman's  hand and holding it tightly in hor own  the girl said:  "Thanks, auntie, for recalling me. I  have no time for tears now. Listen and  don't interrupt me. My poor mother  died with a heart hllad with fears for my  future, left to that man's keeping. At  the time of her death, he belioved himself  her unconditional heir. She fcarod for her  life with him, and her sickness was  aggravated in every possible manner by  him, and I fully bnlieve that, in intent,  if not in deed, John Arthur is my  ' mother's murderer."  The   old   woman's   fac9   expressed   as  plainly as words could do, than she shared  in this belief.    Tho girl went on,    in tho  same rapid, firm tone:  ���������    "Ho   killed? the mother  for   gold, and  now   he   would sell   her child.    Ho .will  fail; and this is but the   beginning.      As  he drove my mother into her grave, I will  hunt him into his!   He   shall   suffer  all  that   she   suffered, and   more!    I  know  where  you   obtained your   independence  now,    Aunt   Hagar;   and ho hatos    you  doubly because my mother's lovo provided   for  you a home, and for  her   child a  haven   in   time of  need.    It   was   well.  Keep   the old cottage open for me,   Aunt  Hagar. ��������� Keep   an   eye  on John   Arthur,  for my sake.      Never   fear for mo, whatever happens. , Expect   to   hoar  froiii me  at any   time, to see rr.e   at any moment.  Don't answer any   questions   about   me.  A thousand thanks for all your love  and  kindness, auntie; good-by."  Before tho old woman could recover  from her astonishment, or uttor a word,  Madeline had kissed her, swiftly taken'  up tho precious pa-ckago, and was gone!  Hagar hastened to the door, but tho girl  was speeding swiftly ddwn tho path, and  was quickly lost to view.  "Oh! Oh! Oh!" moaned Hagar, seating herself in the doorway; "her father's  passion and her mother's prido! Sorrow  and trouble beforo her, and she all alone,  dark, dark, dark tho world against her!  Sorrow and .-trouble���������it's'in tho blood!  And she'll never give it up! She'll fight  her wrongs ' to tho bitter end. Oh, my  precious girl!" , and she burled her head  in her apron and wept.  The sun's last ray had   faded   from the  highest   hill-top.    The   little   birds  had  folded   their   wings,   and   hushed   their  warblings.    Dark   clouds' came sweeping  up   from   tha west, and one, heavy   and  black, passed above   tho  roof of   Oakley,  bent- down,   and   rested   there.    Hagar,  still sorrowing  in   the doorway, saw and  interpreted.    Dark   days   to come to-the  master   of   that     overshadowed    house.  Dreary days and bitter  nights:���������������;ih, how  many, before that.cloud   should .be lifted  from   above it,   or  light hearts beat   Ifj-  neath ks roof ?  "I   beg   pardon, madame, you   appear  in trouble; perhaps I intrude?'  It was Lucian Davlin's soft, lazy voice,  and that disagreeablo   half smile   lurked  about the corners of his eyes and mouth!  "I've had moro welcome visitors,"  saio the old woman, with more ^ truth  shan politeness, and rubbing her eyes  with tho corner of her apron, "what do  you want?"  "Only a small matter of   information,  which I believo you can givo me.";  "Well," said Hagar, testily.  "I want to make a few inquiries about  Mr. Arthur of Oak ley. "  "About Miss Madeline, I suppose you  mean.    I won't toll you a word���������"  "My dear, good woman, I don't ask  nor wish any information regarding that  young -lady���������my inquiries solely concern  the father.    He is said (o be wealthy !"  "What is John Arthur or his money  to you?" she quostionod, eyeing him  with much disfavor.  "Nothing whatever, " he indifferently  replied. "I merely inquire on behalf of a  friend."  " I'll throw him off the scout if he  does mean Madeline," thought the old  woman.  "Well, Mr. whatever your name is, if  it will satisfy your friend to know that  Mr. John Arthur is master of Oakley  and everybody knows thero is no finer  property in the state, and that he has a  yearly income of ten thousand or more,  why, tell him or her so. And you may as  well say, at the same time, that he is too  stingy and mean to keep the one in repair or spend decently the other. And  when he dies"���������here she suddenly checked herself���������"well when he dies his heirs,  whoever 1hey may be, will inherit all  the more because of his meanness."  " And who, pray, may be his heirs?"  "How should I know who the stingy  old reprobate will choose to inherit aft������r  hirnf I think he has a sistor somewhere-,  but I don't know. "  "H'm thank you���������for ray friend. Goodnight."  Smiling     that   same   Mephistophelian  smile,   Lucian   Davlin  sauntered   away,  apparently   satisflod   with   himself and  what was passing in his mind.  "He'll do,'-' ho muttorcd ; "and uhe'll  do him. It will bo a good thing for her,  just now, and very convenient for mo in  to tho bargain. Cora's a marvellously  fine womiiu, but. littlo Madelino is fresn  as a roso, and a few months of the city  will make her sharp enough. Only let mo  keep thorn apart; that's all" Satisfaction beamed in his oyo and smiled on his  lip. "Pretty Madeline will be tho envy  of half tho boulevard."  Now -ho has nearod tho trysting tree.  "I think I'll just smoko here, and wait  for my pretty bird ; this is the place and  almost the time."  Ha smoked and he waited; tho time  came, and passed; his cigar expired; The  shadows deepened���������������������������but still ho waited.  And he waited in vain, no ngrn- i=.-:.-.  advanced through the gathering night;  no sweet voice greeted him.  The time was far past now, and,- muttering an oath, the disappointed /over  strode away, and was lost iu the night.  Madeline was standing in her own  room, the threshold of, which John  Arthur had never .crossed since- the day  when a silent form was borne from it,  and laid in that peaceful home, the  churchyard. She had just received tho  summons, for which, only, she,lingered  ���������the command" of Mr. Arthur to attend  at tho altar of hospitality, and pour, for  Mr. Amos Adams, the toa.'  She was attired in a neat dark garment  which was vastiy becoming. Shor had  made her toilet with more than tisnal  care, as if, perhaps, to do honor to' her  ancient suitor���������at least so thought Mr.  Arthur when she presented herself before him.  She had put her chiofest treasures in a  little, a very little, travelling bag. And  now she throw across her arm a largo  cloak, took hor hat, veil, and bag, and  desconded softly to the hall below. Jt was  faintly lighted from the lower end, and  Madeline deposited her belongings in a  darkened , niche near a door, peopod out  into the night that had come on cloudy  and starless, and entered the room where  waited the two conspirators, and supper.  " John Arthur was moro bland and smiling th.m Madelino had ever before known  him, while as for old Amos, he nearly  lost himself in a maze of grins and  chuckles, but displayed a very unlover-  like appetite, nevertheless, and dividod  his attention pretty evenly between the  beautiful face of Madeline and the viands  on the table.  Madeline betrayed no sign of surprise  at her step-papa's unwonted co diality.  and no annoyance at the ogling and  chuckling of her antiquated suitor. In  truth, she favored him with more than  one expressive smile, the meaning of  which he little guessed, as she contrasted  him once more with handsome Lucian  Davlin, and smiled again at the picture  of his coming defeat.   <���������   .  The-meal was partaken of in comparative silence, all apparently well satisfied  with their own thoughts���������ah, 'how  different! It-was not until old Jane, the  servant, had been dismissed that Mr.  Arthur drew his chair a trifle nearer that  of his friend, and, leaning his arms upon  the table, looked across at Madelino, and  said :   .- ��������� v.;-;  "My dear, I believe you aro awaro of  the honor this gentleman desires tp confer upon you? I think I have hinted at  the truth upon one or two occasions?"  Madeline veiled her tod expressive eyes  behind their long lashes, bub made no  roply. ,v'  ' "It is my desire," he continued, surveying with satisfaction the appearance  of humility with which his words were  received, "and tho desire of Mr. Adams  as well, that wo should come to a satisfactory understanding to-night. We will,  therefore, settle the preliminaries at  once:���������this is your desire, I think, Mr.  Adams?"  "Ow, certainly! Oh, yes, yes," ejaculated old Amos, in a ti"an?port of grins.  "And this will. .1 trust, "���������ho was growing moro statoly and polite every moment���������"this, of course, is satisfactory to  you, Miss Madeline?"  "Perfectly." She looked him full in  the face now, and somehow her gUVi'ioa  slightly impaired his feeling of dignity  and security.  "Very good; and now having formally  accepted the proffered hand of Mr.  Adams���������"  "Pardon me, sir, yon are too fast. Mr.  Adanis has not offered himself."  "Nonsense," Mr. Arthur suddenly forgot his politeness���������"haven't I just stated  iji- offer?"  Madeline, leaned back in her chair, and  looked from ona to the other with a  tranquil 5-mile.  "Perhaps; but unfortunately thero is a  law in existence which prohibits a man  from marrying his grandmother, and  likewise cfbjects, I believe, to a young  woman's espousing, her step-papa, how-  ver much adored. And as you can't  marry me, my dear parent and guardian,  I object to listening to a proposal from  your lips."  John Arthur gazed in angry consterna-  ti'in upon ihe girl's still smiling face, but  Why- Cycling   Has   Won  the   Undisputed  Premier  Position. "  ,In behalf of cycling an athlete of much  experience has tbe following to say:  "Rowing tells on the breathing organs,  the work on dumbbells and other exercises where the muscles are moved without progression of the body, tell most on  the muscles themselves,'and long pedestrian feats without climbing,, tell on the  nervous system. In cycling, as in.running? it is the heart and circulation that  first give demonstrative ovidonce of important change of action. '  "Modern gymnastics have been largely  shaped with reference to military purposes, and, while gymnastic exercises, if  well selected and proportioned, do pro-  moto muscular development and physical  grace and vigor, they , aro easily carried  to an oxtreme, and instances aro not rare  where they havo broken down tho constitution instead of building it up.  "Feats of gymnastic skill train the  nerve centers mdro than tho muscles, and  once the trick is acquired their value as  exercise is slight. Feats of strength often,  put an injurious strain upon tho organism with no corresponding benefit.  "The arm appears to be the object of  all the exercises of modern gymnastics;  breasting and other movements which  throw the suspension of support of the  body upon the arms and shoulders give  them unsuitable work and result in disproportionate development of tho musclos  of tho shoulder 'girdle, often associated  with a rounding back, and little oi' no  increased $ower in , ventilation, since all  such feats are performed with a chest  fixed and constricted by muscular effort.  "It is the avoidance of all this and the  constant change of scene, air, sunshine'  and motion that has given cycling the  undisputed premier position as a pastime  and an exercise that it now occupies."  BUYING A HOME WITHOUT CASH.  the  One Can Own   His  House  by.  Faying  ,    Equivalent of Its liental Value.  "It is   possible   nowadays,   quite easy,  indeed, for the  industrious   wage-earner,  or nerson   with   small   means or income,  to own his home." writes  Barton   Chey-  ney on "Buying a House without  Cash"  in the Ladies' Home   Journal.,  "And he  can do this either with a very small sum  of money in hand or by some plans without ready cash., Bv these plans a homo is  purchased outright,   and   cleared of debt  in a comparatively short   term   of, years,  the .purchaser paying a   sum   equivalent  to a fair rent for the property.

He Didn't Get   the Wheel.  Many are the stories told   by   speakers  at public dinners at the   expense   of each  other, after   tho   fashion   of Judge How-  land's   story   of   how   R.,   H.   Stoddard  opened a tomato can so  explosively   that  his wife thought he was opening, it with  prayer! iA similarly veracious story is told  ol John "Wanamaker.    Ho   is   reported to  have   observed,   as   he   entered his store  ono   morning,   three   boys,  admiring   a  bicycle iu the window. With native goodness of heart he turned to them and asked  them ir they   would   like   a   wheel.    On  their answering "yes," he   said: "I   will  give a wheel to the boy who will give the  best answer to this question: 'Whom    do  you   love best?' "    Instantly   one  of the  boys cried out, "John Wanamaker." "Oh,  no!',' he replied, "you never saw me    before; you cannot love me best." He then  turned to the second: "Whom do you love  best?" ' The   insinuating   answer   cams,  "My father and   mother."   "Excellent,"  said Mr. Wanamaker; "it is an admirable  answer; I think you will get the wheel."  Then to the third: "Whom do   you,  love  best?"    "Jesus   Christ,"   said    the   boy.  "Ah! that is tho best answer   of all; the  bicycle is   yours.    I   am   glad to see you  beginning    the   Christian "life so youiic.  What is   your   name   and   where do you  live?"   "Moses Isaacs. Chatham   street,"  replied the boy;  but he lost the  wheel.���������  The Independent.  Uses for tlie Horse.  So, affcor all, the wheel isn't going to  render the horse useless. The horse has a  vital advantage over the bicycle. We can't  eat tho latter.  A Western man is canning nice, juicy  Indian ponies, each one making six cases  of 48,one-pound cans. .These cute ponies  cost all the way from ������1.50 to $2 each.  How nice.  This pony meat may become-  one of tho   stable articles of food, but   it  gives one the;nightmare to think   of   it.  It's enough to make a vegetarian of  ono.  A party near Portland, Ore., is'putting  up quite an extensive plant   for  tho pur-  poso of   grinding these   nice   horses into  some fine substance to be   used   as a fertilizer. '  <    So, we see, that both as a   food   and a  fertilizer the   horse   has   the long end of  tho   string.    You   couldn't eat a bicycle  any more than   you   could a professional  boarding-housd   steak.    It   is   equally as  great a failure as   a fertilizer.    In    thoso  two respects, at least, it is no competitor  of tho horse; it is completely   outclassed.

Nicety of .Etiquette.'.'.-.  A true gentleman usually feels that it  is essential to be courteous to the least as  to the greatest, but ^etiquette does not  always recognize this. The famous Talleyrand is reported to have used a graduation of politeness in asking his guests to  take beef at a dinner party that,he gave.  The grade ran thus:  o To Prince of the blood���������May I have  the honor of sending, your Royal Highness a little beef?    .

But,there was yet an inferior personage  present, and to him Talleyrand uttered  no word. He simply looked at him, and  made an interrogative gesturo with the  carving-knife. But, if the meat were  good, some of us, would not trouble much  how we were invited to it.���������London Tit-  Bits. .-.'-,.-  Aztec Stones for Grinding Corn.  J. A.

BACK FOR PIPES, MUGS AND PLATES.  the heart of fashion must have a collection of pipes and a row, of mugs with an  old plate or  two  arranged artistically  on the shelves  and  given. due prominence on,the library  wall.   It need not  ,  matter whether the boardc, is  square or  ' oblong.    This will  depend entirely on'  . the niche it is decided to fill.  The scheme must be worked out with  u   a foundation of a back board.    This can  . be  stained  or  covered with burlap  or  velveteen in "any dull  color,, preferably  forest green'or Venetian red, if in harmony with', the surrounding hangings.  Thero is a narrow shelf, perhaps three  inches wide, which forms the top of the  back board.-   A row of  good sized brass  hooks,   screwed .into the  underside  of  this shelf, holds mugs. ' Six  or  seven  , inches below is a shelf grooved to hold  the edges of  plates. . Below  this is another shelf with a rod across, and three'  inches below this shelf is the pipe rack.  The  Turkish taboret, which   is neither a  chair nor  a stand, but may be  made to .serve as a general utility article, is  quite  the fad just now.  When  "the  taboret  is real  and  eastern, with'  inlaid wood  and  pearl ornamentation,  it is an expensivo luxury.  It can be reproduced  after a fashion, however,   for  ' about a dollar.  The size can bo determined to suit the  individual need." The number of  sides,  Vhether five, seven or eight, is also optional.    Each side   must be made to fit  closely to its neighbor at  a clear, angle,  ' and so cut out at the bottom as to form  a half of two legs.  These pieces, nailed  together, form the base.  A good way to  determine  tho height is to measure an  ordinary chair from floor   to seat.    The  diameter  of    the  top   of   the   taboret  should be from 10 to 18 inches and about  three inches larger than the diameter  of the base.  This extension of the coyer  beyond the base is one of the features of  the  taboret,   and   its    effectiveness  is  lost when  the cover is  flush with;the  sides of the base.   This top is hinged,  and  the  interior of the base is given a  bottom  board  just a  little above  the  arch made for  the legs.

JOSEPH CHAMBERLAIN.  appreciate,' that he spoke as he did after  consideration and not from the inspiration of the banquet cup. His personality  is known from Irkutsk to Washington.  The cold-bloodedness of his nature gives  authority to the statement that his  speech of a week ago was a dirrect warning to continental Euroxie that in time of  need the Anglo-Saxon would be a unit  against the Latin ana the Slav. Mr.  Chamberlain is just that much different  from Arthur Balfour that ho .is rarely  thought to be in je^t, while the latter is  assumed to be never in earnest.  'Gladstone has moved liis last way to  under the roses of Hawarden; Salisbury  is tottering and searching for life at  Riviera. Balfour may yet be Premier,  but if all tokens be not false, Chamberlain but a few. days ago spoke for an  hour when he will.be master and his  will direct an alliance with the United  States if they wish it.  Everyday people always enjoy tho story  of the life of Chamberlain. His beginning was not along the smooth path  opened for Balfour. His father was a  London shoemaker, who made some  money off of soles and uppers. He made  good shoes and the boy was designed to  succeed him at the altar of Crispin. He  showed no unwillingness to do so until  fate ledchim at IS to Birmingham and  placed him with a firm of wood screw-  makers,, in which he was eventually to  "become the principal factor.  He came out of the University  College  School   in    1854   to   make;   his homo in  Birmingham, and in the letter   of  intro-'  duction which he carried with him   there  to friends was the sentence:  "Please be kind and see as much as  you can of poor Joe, for he knows nobody  in Birmingham." '.-���������'���������  Time was not required for his   masters  to know him, though.    He was taciturn,  but brutally in earnest.    He   went at the  business of making screws, just as he has  undertaken everything else  -in. his   long  career.    His   first   dive into the -world"of  trade   was   in   an   effort to mako screws  cheaper and better   than   anyone else   on  tho market did.    Ho succeeded. Literally  he   reorganized   the   world's   market for  wood screws.    Where   thero had been cut  prices,   trade   depression, no   profits,   he  created   unity,    profitable   sales,'   activo  demand.    Ho concerned himself with the  minutiae of his shops,   studied   the   condition   surrounding   his  men, uncovered  coal mines for his   own   supply,    became  tho owner of the raw material ho needed,1  entered     into     partnership     with      his  employers, rose to the head   of   an establishment    employing   2,000   men,      ant)  found   a   wealth producing an income of  $150,000 annually at his disposal.  All this he did in twenty years, for it  was in 1S74 when he first really entered  the political field of the British Empire.  Understanding this much of the man  It is not difficult to appreciate why, as a  statesman, his utterances are taken to  represent the sentiments of commercial  England, and the foundation of tho throne  of England is not to be found in war-  sbips, but her commerce.  Mr. Chamberlain was not content,  while a tradesman, to be merely that. He  could not make a public speech, so he  taught hirnself oratory. He joined  Birmingham debating societies and  spoke until a freedom of manner came to  him which was attractive. He kept  himself loaded with facts. Possibly realizing that his voice and his personality  might always bo against him as a  popular orator he built  his strength as a  sp'eaker upon nis js.uuy*.i~u(S.- -.  details of nearly every subject under the  sun. Your Englishman likes solid facts  more than oratorical flourishes in a  speech. He took to Chamberlain's  mastery of facts, upheld as they were by  invective, irony, satire and ridicule, with  huge delight. In time he called  Chamberlain "The People's Joseph."  Once a speaker with a reputation, Mr.  Chamberlain launched into tho field of  municipal reform.-:He found Birmingham a squalid, dirty, unhealthy city. He  was elected mayor over and over again.  He rebuilt the streets, tore down the  rookeries, sewered the bad places, fought  for municipal ownershiD of tramways and  light. What was healthful, wholesome,  best for tho poople of a city he not only  adovcated, but got. He entered on his  first canvas for a. seat in Parliament in  1874, a rounded man, having the  confidence of those who knew him. Ho  was defeated, but stood again and was  returned in 1876. ,*  Since then his career has been steadily  upward. He was in Gladstone's Cabinet  in 1880 and became tho author of the  Bankruptcy Act, now tho'law of England. He remained with- Gladstone until  1886, when, in a' division of sentiment  with tho grand old man over Homo  Rulo. he resigned and opposed him  politically forever after. , He was a  member of tho Fishery Commission sent  to the United States in 1888 and Secretary of State under Salisbury. He became  a leader of the Liberal-Unionist party  after tho retirement of Lord Har'tington.  In 1888 he married Miss Mary Endicott,  daughter of Grover , Cleveland's first  Secretary of War. , She is his third wife  and he has a son by his first wife older  than her.  In his early years Mr. ^Chamberlain  was a Socialist, drifting with that into  what is termed radical English politics.  Since 1886 he has grown' more conservative, shown a preference for Imperalism  and unification of all the interests of the,  Empire. The changes in his opinions on  questions of this character are ' no more  remarkable than those which took place  in tho political evolution of Castelar of  Spain. But through all 'his career Mr.  Chamberlain has never failed on occasion  to show that he kept in touch with the  British public and that what ho said was  not a mere opinion of his own. Better  than any living man in England to-day  he knows the strength and ,the weakness  of-his nation. A terrible dealer in facts,  he is not the kind of man to blind himself to conditions surrounding, England,  which mako'it absolutely necessary that  her career of "splendid' isolation" should  come to an end. He*'recognizes, as many  others do, that > continental Europe has'  but one hope���������the humiliation' of Great  Britain���������and that Great Britain in the  end can only prevent that by, an alliance  with the United States. He means that  when lie said:  "I   would   go   so   far   as to say that,  terrible   as -war   may be, even war itself  would be cheaply purchased if  in a great  and   noble   cause   tho Stars and   Stripes"  and     the     Union     Jack ��������� should   wave  together over an Anglo-Saxon   alliance."  A great many peojrle call that claptrap.  This   will not'disturb   Mr. Chamberlain  at all.  He probably would   as   leave substitute for Angl#-Saxon   the  words Eng-,  lish-American, for that is what he meant,  and   that   is  why Madrid journals fairly  frothed   when   the   report   of his speech  reached them.    Ho   is   business  all over,  and his speech meant business   for   England.    A    man   who   could   compel  his  adopted town to purchase gas works wit������  a   present   capital   value   of   Si 1,000,000  and an annual profit   of   $150,000, at the  same time reducing the cost of gas to tho  people a shilling, is dreadfully in earnest  wherever you tako him.  He did the same  thing with the Birmingham water works,  now   valued   at   ������11,000,000,   and which  have   reduced   water   rates   ������80,000  per  year for the consumers.   He   bought   the  "central slums"      of     Birmingham   for  $8,000,000   ana   constructed   Corporation  street out of them.  When the leases there  fall, in some fifty years   hence, Birmingham will be the richest civic   corporation  in   the   world.    To-day,    thanks   to Mr.  Chamberlain, the tax rates   of   Birmingham   are   less   than they were fifty years  ago, and the total charge is rather   more  than'20 shillings per head of   population  or   one-fifth   or   the   charge   of the,local  administration of Boston.    Of course, all  this work smacks   of   radical republicanism,   and   rightly   so,    and   continental  Europe fears   republicanism as much today   a>   it   did Napoleon a century ago.  Monarchs   of   Germany,   Austria, Spain  have no regard for such an: utterance   as  this from Chamberlain:  "I am confident in the capacity of a  wise government resting upon the  representation of the whole people, to do  something to add to tho sum of human  hapnincss, to smooth tho way for misfortune and poverty. Wo are told that  this country (England) is the paradise of  made, -must be with tho Anglo-Saxon or  Celt (as you choose) of America, and Mr.  Chamberlain, in the opinion of diplomats  in Washington, has but forewarned the  world that if not to-day fifty years hence  the United States and England will be  as one in matters of external policy.  He is supported in his position by the  Duke of Fife, by Sir Charles Dilke, by  the Duke 'of Argyll, and innumerable  eminent public men of England.    '  With a voice which they say resembles  that'ofa "London cabby," Mr. Chamberlain has succeeded in arousing the world  of diplomacy as it has not been stirred  in years. Not even, the war with Spain  has given so much concern as this,speech  from "the lips of a , Cabinet Officer of  England. But, thon Mr. Chamberlain  never does anything, they say in his  home, that is not extraordinary and  worthy of the closest consideration. If  you chance bv London way this season  and meet a sldnderly built man wearing  a huge monoole and an orchid you will  know that it is Chamberlain, the man  who was termed by the Lords when he  was first on his way to the Commons to  take his seat: - '  "The black man from the , country,  clay pipe in mouth, clothes soiled with  dirt."  The Lords do not say that now.  SOUR GRAPES.  THE SHIP'S RUDDER.  Bhrined in their bower two maidens stood,  , Daintily sweet in glance and smile,  Laughing in arch and piquant mood,  And scanning the passersby the while.    ,  Two idling beaux, in decked array,  Were sauntering thero with lazy pace,  One young and ardent, lithe and gay,  The other old aud gaunt of face.  The twain above, the twain below.  Looked up  and down, tho each -their way.  The maids sought more the youth to know,  Hit friend's fond smile they'd not repay.  "Now, bv the sacred saints, I swear,"  , The youth exclaimed in passioned tone,     '  "Those maidens both are gr'.ndly fair!  Ah, Venus, would they weiu mine own I"  "These maidens fair! Nay, not at all.  You strangely err,'; his comrade said.  "The one, in sooth, is grossly lull.

The rudder of a wooden ship is composed of the stalk arid the backing! which  are so joined together as to form in effect  a,single piece. The' complete rudder is  coppered, to protect it from worms, and  then, besides being practically all in one  piece, it has that appearance also.    >   \  The stalk is1 the part to which aro attached'the pintles,' or pivots, by which  the rudder is suspended and held in  place, thesegomg through,eyes set������in'the  ship's sternpost. The stalk , runs up  through, the stern of the ship, and to its  head is bolted a cap to which,aro attached  the ropes ny means of" which the rudder  is controlled. ' Tho backing is the blade  part of tho rudder. c ���������  '    By far the greater strain comes   on the  stalk, and the greatest strain" of all comes  on the   head   of < the   stalk���������the   rudder  head���������where it is held.  The stalk is made  of   the   wood   most   likely   to  stand the  strain, carefully selected, sound,'well-seasoned oak, while the backing is   made of  spruce or hard* pine.    The   stalk  is of a  single, solid,' massive   piece, stout as an  oak tree, and indeed of the dimensions of  a small oak���������something that a   man can  pin his faith to, if ho   can   have faith in  any wood���������while  tho   backing "or blade  is,   like   many   modern   wooden   masts,  built up. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to" find troes , that would   yield  planks big enough for   the   purpose  in a  single   piece,   and   the built-up backing,  made   of   pieces   of   selected   wood,   can  .easily   be   made   of   ample . strength   to  withstand any strain that will be  brought  upon it. ..'...  -As to tho stalk, stout and solid as ^the.;  oak may bo, tho head may be twisted by  tho force of a tremendous blow from a  wave upon the rudder, or, under the repeated strains of long use, the head may  split, and so mako the stalk useless.  Then tho rudder is taken out and fitted  with a now stalk. A snitablo stick is  solected and worked clown to the proper  size and form, and very probably the old  backina is attached to in.

The Street Railway Journal   publishes  a very interesting description of a primitive street railway which operates   in the  suburbs of San Francisco.    A horse pulls  a loaded car to one end   of   tho  line, the.  grade of which is sufficient to   allow  the  car to return by   gravity   to the starting  point, the horse being taken   aboard   the  car on the return trip, riding on the rear  platform.    The   crado   averages   834' per  cent., and this is sufficient to return   the  car. the horse and the   passengers   to tho  foot of the hill entirely by   gravity.    Tho  line   is about one mile   in   length.    The  company owns   one   car   and five horses,  and the daily mileage is about   40.    The  horse is able to draw tho car up the grade  at an average   speed   of   about 2)4 miles  per hour, and the car descends by gravity  a-t a rate of about 15 miles tier hour.
