Referring to Lord Salisbury's  speech last Saturday' night at the  Guildhall, Truth says : "The careless composition of the speech of.  the Piemier which contained some  singularly obscure sentences, nas  revived the talk of his impending  retirement, and given cause for believing at least that he no longer  takes an earnest interest in political  life."  An Anarchist meeting *' to com-  merate the legal murder of the  /Chicago Anarchists," which had  been called for to night, was prohibited by thc police, who were  stationed at the v���������rioue entrances  to the hall in Clcrkenwall, London,  and sent away hundreds that came  to attend the proceedings.

Later in his speech .Mr-Broderick  said Great Britain had now 42,000  Boe:s in custody,in  the concentra  tion camps and on various islands,  and that   11,000 more   had - been  killed   or wounded/or  had left "the  - ��������� -1  couutry on'patrol.    He added that  he believed the number of-Boers  now in "the field was about 10,000.  ' The country has set its teeth and  intends to go through the^process  of wearing down," he exclaimed.  " We intend ��������� to pro-vide Lord Kitchener with fresh troops to replace  tired ones. Only to-day a certain  colony made an offer to help."

SEVERE   WEATHER  IN  GREAT BRITAIN.  Many tales of thc disastrous ga^e  now reach us, especially from the  coasts of the United Kingdom.

The  seas were so high off the Tyne th-it  shipping had to be stopped. The  armored cruiser Monmouth was to  have been 'launched on the Clyde  on Nov. 12, but owing to the severity of the storm the ceremony was  postponed.

SHIPWRECK 15 THE GULF.  *i '  Schooner Goes Down with  c   all on Board.  A bottle containing the following  pathetic memorandum was picked  ,up,on the beach near Cape Lazo  last week:���������" Cumberland, August  29th, schooner "Westville" sinking.    All on board lost."   >  (Sgd.)    Cookte Johnston.  Billy Marshall. -  W. Connors.  , Andy IIorne.  of Nova Scotia." f  That the finder of the bottle 'and '  document was horrified goes without saying, and that the note found  r  its way to the " News " office, in a  hurry was natural. - At first' sight  the affairTooked bad, very bad! but  (as our eagle-eyed devil happened to  know that at least two of. the unfortunates were, and had been for  some lime,1'alive and-kicking, and  in pretty fair flesh, in .this our'town, <<,  it was - speedily "assumed that theo  schooner referred 'to was^' made of,  glass, and shipwrecked the hardy  t mariners - only after1' repeatedly ���������  crossing the bar. Thus is , lost ;  another gigantic scoops   ,        -'   \   '  THE WILDMAN OF THE WOODS. \  'Some three miles-up the Trent,   ">  on . the* left hand bank,, there is a'   >  cabin   on   a  little1 clearing A   The  building   is so' situated that Jit is   ''  impossible ,to*see it unless a'person     ,  comes out into'the* clearing close to 'J  it.'    The land' was formerly-taken  up-by a "man named Perry^ whov  -lived-imCourtenay for a time,  but -���������-  ,who left it, some years^agoi* T'For.' ���������  Bome.time back the cabin'has-been'1- ������������������  occupied'by* a man'named Charles  Leedi;  formerly of Nanaimo,'' who'  has  lived 'there  quite-alone,   and  apart*from fellowrr.en-slave when at  rare,'intervals  he has  visited   the  - town -for-.Jthe���������purpose of obtaining   ,  suppliesr So peculiar are^he'man's f ���������  actions  that a  well-definecL beliefj ,  that he is partly, if not wholly insane, is indulged in  by people who  havemet him.   ( A short time ago  two hunters passing the cabin, and  seeing  smoke  issuing   from   what    ���������,  they    thought    was   a ..tenantless  building,   went  to   the   door   and  knocked.    They were greeted from  within  by a  flow of  such strange  language  that they departed without  investigating   further,   feeling  sure that a maniac dwelt therein.  Later,  two others from this town  passed the place, and one of them  seeing the man issue from the door  gieeted hirn  with a   "good  morning*."     Ho turned like a wild beast  and assailed his visitor with a volley  of foulest  abuse  and  threats,  telling him he wanted no hunters  there.      He then went within and  slammed   the door..    After   a  few  moments   he aga;n   appeared   and  repealed his language, at the same  time  advancing  in   a  threatening  manner.     Seeing   that he had   no  tgun the hunter stepped rip to  him  and in turn threatened him with a  sound thrashing if he did not desist,  when   he subsided and   again  withdrew to  the house. The hunter  went  on   his,   way and   upon  the  second man's arrival on the scene-��������� .  he had been: a short distance behind  ���������he was unable to extract a word  of  information   or   anything 'else .  from    the   lonely  dweller   in   the  woods.     There can   be no   doubt  that the case ia one which calls for  police investigation.      If the man  is insane he should be removed, for,  apart from any humanitarian  sen- ,  timent    he    will   piohably' be ��������� a  menace to any one travelling that  part of the country.     If he is sane  then he  should  receive   a, strong  warning  not to interfere with  bypasses.  &r  'r������l  "I  y  " *- t-1  ���������**".

This great warrior, who' had doubt-  , '  "less  gained  his   position" through  his  prowess in -the chase,  and in  time of  j "'battle,   had  dared  to   presume  so  far  as  to -fall   in  love  with   the beautiful  _ being"  whom his  tribe  had  set  up  as  a ^thing  to   be   worshipped.    .  -    r   ,At   tho  bare 'thought  Pox  felt     his  'blood  boii  within  him.     perhaps  the  -time   that  had  elapsed  since  his  first  meeting  with' this' fair  lnrricl   of     thc  *���������   wilderness      had      been       exceedingly  ���������brief, ' but  it  was 'not  jealousy   'that  ���������-sprang:to arms so much, as tlie sense  'Of repulsion   at   tlie  bare  thought   of  *one so lovely being" wooed by a sav-  , ��������� -ago.

Evidently the stalwart Zambodi had  ���������also discovered his presence, and  ���������begun to. suspect lie had a rival in  :tliq field���������at least Kex saw him  -glance towards him several times,  -and once the war chief made an imperious gesture which being interpreted might mean that he was to betake h'imself  off without   delay.  The fact that the unknown brave  did not appear to notice his mute  command seemed to further enrage  ..the  chief.  A climax was inevitable.  _Cj-ond  them  lay   tho  remains   of a  "fire,   thc  ashes  still  throwing   out     a  -dull red glow,  and her course promised  to   take     them     close     by  these  glowing  coals.  As if making  up  his mind to bring  matters   to  a  focus,   Walkulla hastened  his  stops.  cessfulJy, as with what Walkulla declaimed.  Perhaps the war chief demanded  why he dared follow the fair god  when she ventured to walk 'forth, or  it might be he went even further and  'threatened all maimer of evil if the  venturesome warrior ever -again cast  an envious  eye upon his  prij.e.

It was not that the impassioned harangue had ta'! en away his  power o: speech, but his inability t.,  grapple with the Zambodi tongue  made him just as -helpless with regard to repl.y'ng- as he had been in  understanding the dritt of the torrent poured  upon Jus -head.

From mere     defensive  tactics      the,  change to offensive was but,a step.  The- war chief proved  game, for up  to  this  time he-had  scorned  to  call  assistance,      even   , though   one   shout,  would   have   resulted   in   the .undoing  of his  fee.

"'  Ilex remained as mute -as the  sphinx that surveys tho Egyptian desert under the shadow of Pharaoh's  pyramids.  At 'the same time lie prepared f'for  the worst.  Walkulla, despairing of drawing a  reply from his mute unknown rival,  tried other tactics, which proved  somewhat more successful in discovering life  in  the -blaCk statue.  He suddenly bent" forward and  thrusting out his hand caught ' the  other's nose between his lingers and  gave it a vicious pinch that brought  the tears to Hasting's eyes.  ���������mat   was  quite enough.  .'   Walkulla      accomplished    his  though    the    result   may' have  what surprised   him."     - ',  Such an insult no self-respecting argonaut couid'piit up. with, and the  pugnacious spirit that' prompts every  Anglo-Saxon to use,'his hands in a  like emergency,- caused P.ox to land  a blow square'y in the- war chief's  face., -  -���������It 'came straight from the shoulder  with all the muscular vim and power of which he was capable. The  Zambodi went flying backward as  though shot from a gun, and landed on his back with a thump ''thai  must have caused him to see stars.  ' He was like a cat in his ways, and  could not-be kept down. As though  made,of Indian rubber he bounded to  his   feet.

Of course they were'in for it now,  since nothing but death could -wipe  out  the  insult  of  that 'blow.-  -i'ex would certainly have avoided  the encounter had he been alone, but  it was thrust upon him, and he had  no  alternative.  ,   A duel with a' savage chieftain, enraged  to  a  point   of' damoniac _ fury,  hundred feet of the  the .new regime  ior the first time bc-_?u  to have suspicions of -the truth ���������  that under the paint of his enemy's  face there might lie the*-white 'skin  of a hated  Anglo-Saxon.

Canada Field Pea nnd Souiiier-n Cotv-  2������en Far and Away In tli������ Lead.  -There has seldom if ever been such a  general and 'widespread interest manifest in regard to soiling crops as there  is this spring among all classes of-  farmers in all parts oi" tbe land, aud in  this the Canada field pea and the southern cowpea seem to be far and away in  the lead. The shortage in the hay crop  for a number of years has led- many  fanners to consider the practicability  of making use of one or more of these  rapid growing legumes as dry hay for-  use during the winter months'as a substitute for tho regular roughage of the  farm, says an Ohio Farmer writer, who  gives\hc following information:  The question most generally asked is  in regard to the particular kind of pea  best adapted to the latitude on which  the farmer is located. This relates  principally to the two main varieties or  types, the Canada field pea 'and the  cowpea. As a ma tier or' fact, tiles'- cannot be regarded as of the same type or  even family except in this respect, that  they are both of them leguminous  plants, for the Canada fipld pea is a pea  proper and of the hard,ie.si variety of  that particular family, while the cowpea is not a pea at all, but a bean of  the most radical type, of -tropical origin  and in many ways even more sensitive  to frost and the like than any of tho  garden beans, even the, more delicate  of the wax varieties.  However, it is thought that careful  and Intelligent selection-may so acclimatize the cowpea as to make it a profitable crop much farther north than Its  natural home. .Until this end Is attained the northern farmer will continue to use the Canada'field peac as ^he  more; profitable' crop*. But the cowpea  (or bean) has lately been grown much  north of the line generally accepted as  the limit of its successful culture.  The-proper, .home of the Canada field  pea is from 39 degrees 30 minutes to 43  degrees TO minutes of. latitude and  from longitude H.*> degrees to 73 degrees 40 minutes west, or about 275  miles north aud south and GOO miles  east and west, or about 1G5.000 square  miles. There is no definite dividing  line where the Canada field pea should  "leave off" and the cowpea begin. The  individual grower located near that  line should make a limited and experimental sowing of both crops to begin  with. If a ��������� crop season of unusual  drought should occur, he will find that  the Canada field pea will suffer much  and the cowpea very little. If the sea-  sou should be wet, with cool nights, or  man;- .lamp, chilly days, the Canada  pci wi.i thrive best, while the cowpea  in.-y be a pui tial failure.  Espimait & -taaimo. Sy.  ~>-^"-.

The principal recreation, time, -except ��������� Christmas, is  known  as   the  August* banking  holi-  , day because on the first Monday in  August th'e banks are closed.  In the  -one    and two     weeks following that  "'day the English business' and working .population that can afford it  takes its annual outing in the '"country or by the sea. ,    '  Bank holiday is therefore a great  day. The poorer population, the  crowds '   that  cannot  take but    one  -"Monday's pleasure, .,hie them to  Hampstead - Heath. If    you said  "Harnpstead Heath" to one of them,  however',  he would  look  at you  "as  ���������at 'one putting on airs. To hit the  vernacular      and be in fashion      you  \������f  \K,     ���������  1.     , v  s>  I t -  l������"'  ISV.  I'i  GIT Y-EH  O'VX Ulffi  must say " 'Ampstead 'Eath." Then  would you be hailed as a man- and a  brother.  If- the American wishes     to  ' get a perfect view of'the lower class  '_ English at'their-best and worst, -'let  him by" all means take in Hampstead  Heath on bank holiday.     . ,  '   The*heath     is simp.ly a huge    hill-  Bide, with more or less grass    and a  few trees growing upon it.    "A steep  ,' etr'ee.t leads .to-it out of a great thoroughfare from, the  heart of London.  ,As. youJ walk up the steep street you  see at- a corner of the pavement,and  ivery close to  a convenient ale    and  /beer - house,  of' course,  a stone bearing an inscription.  It tells you that  on    the    very    spot   .marked by ,the  6tone little orphan Dick Whittington  Bat down  ������o  rest himself,   with    his  cat  in his  arms,   when  he  was running  away from London,   and as  he  Bat      heard     the     bells   of   the   city  chiming     "-Turn again,   Whittington,  thrice    -Mayor  of London."     Matter  of fact persons say1 no  mortal     ear  could   have  heard  the  bells   of     the  London   of  1380   chiming  at  I-Iamp-  Bte'ad Heath,  because the town   was  then so small and so far away,    but  ..what would these have?     We cannot  epoil   a  good   story.  Millions  of feet have  since pressed  the spot 'where weary Dick Whittington and his cat rested that day, and  many  thousands press  it  still  every  -August bank-holiday.  Upper class England stays strictly  away from Hampstead Heath on  bank holiday. That is the very reason for going there. You want to  see .the British nature with its stays  off. Well, you sec it. It throngs  to the heath in a hundred thousand  specimens, on foot, by omnibus,-and  by what these specimens call "the  tram," which is one of the two or  three electric car lines thc whole  city of London boasts. There are  thousands of children with the prettiest expmplexions of any young ones  in the world. English children that  get enough to eat are prettier than  Canadian children, but as they grow  to maturity they lose this beauty,  an'd then we have thc advantage in  looks. Again,      an  English  lower  class crowd does not 'begin to be so  well      dressed as a French one-.     Its  young men, appea'r to have come to  the picnic in their working clothes.  You thread your way- among the  crowd. Suddenly, no matter how  well dressed you are���������if wearing a  /silk hat, so much the more liable  you are to catch it���������a deluge of water is spurted upon your head and  drips dov;n over your clothing., An  animal-like heehaw bursts upon your  ear, and you look up and 'see . two  young ar-imals with a squirt" gun,  empty, for they'have just, discharged  the water from it upon, your silk  hat. Looking about, you see 'that  al! through the crowd are girls,  ��������� -.*-~i-|q. men. women and children  with similar toy water guns,- tiring  them off at well dressed' persons  wherever1 they are found. This is  part of ,their idea of fun.  - Every few- steps apart are fakirs,  usually women fakirs, selling the water guns and crying:  "Two. for  a* penny!      All  thc jolly  fun!     Git yer own bike agyne."  The vender does not mean a- bicycle. She means "get your _ own  back again," but the London native  pronounces "back" as "bike" and  "again" to rhyme with.,"pine." If  in a Canadian park one should  squirt, water from a gun upon any  person, a policeman would at once  arrest him, and serve him right, but  here --bis rudeness goes under the  "name of pleasant practical joking.  On you ��������� go a few steps farther.  Suddenly upon your hat,, not yet  dry, down- the back of your neck, in-  ,to your- hair and all over*- you descends a cloud of round bits of colored paper called "confetti." You  peer about to see whence this visitation- came, and behold "two grinning  girls of l14,' their front' teeth all  gone, and they not ashamed of -it'.  These are the enemy.       t  On you go".. Presently your hat is  knocked quite off. Another Hampstead .Heath- pleasure seeker has  struck it with an inflated bladder,  and he too as heehawing at you. Now  you look around once more and^find  that scores of people, of all ages are  pelting each other /with bladders.  More of tlieir holiday fun!  Boy and girl sweethe'arts of 16 to  18 years walk abo"ut with their arms  around each other, or, if not that,  holding hands ,'and'looking soft and  sheepish in. a clumsy way. Now and  rthen they .vary the lovemaking with  a little tender horseplay, such as  pinching arms black and blue 'or  wrestling. v The girl always gets tho  worst of it and not infrequently- has  her clothing torn1. - But who minds  a little /thing like that on a bank  holiday? Horseplay is the natural  outlet of the spirits of the poor class  youthfuK'Londoner.  Once,"more"- onward, likewise upward, toward the top of the hill. On  each side of you, here"and there, are  posts '-stuck into the ���������earth.' ^ They  are about three <feet high, and on  top, of'each rests t.a~ cocoanut. Red  balls are furnished to all who buy  chances in this cocoanut shooting  gallery. -For so much a shot -the  customer is allowed to fire the balls  at the post, and if he can knock the  cocoanut off the post it is his prize.  London poverty and ���������low life  swarm upon Hampstead Heath on  the,first Monday of August year by  year as it comes round. The swarm  constitutes the most rough and tumble crowd , and the worst dressed  throng among English speaking peoples. Yet they are fairly good na-  tured. There- is a deluge of brute  fun, if fun it be, but there is comparatively little real ��������� quarreling or  fighting. At the foot of Hampstead  Heath is a, deep'gully, and rising  the other side of'the-gully is Parliament Hill, where respectable middle-  class British go with their families.  Upon. Hampstead Heath a mob; upon Parliament Hill well dressed, refined, good looking people.  ly an octave. Others, notably two  species of ophidium, have sound-producing ' apparatus,, consisting ��������������� 'of  small movable bones, which can be  made to produce a sharp rattle. The  curious "drumming" made by " the'  species called umbrinas/cari be' heard  from a depth of 30 fathoms.  A Cloeiion Has-Relief.  '  A bas'relief by Clodion, -representing fawns, nymphs and cupids- at  play, lias, been discovered in. a* Paris  nunnery. The .relief-.was carved for  Princess Louise of Condo, in the  eighteenth century, and when she-became a nun the figures wrere covered  with plaster.'. A Prussian cannon  ball' at the time of the sieg'e of  Paris chipped off the plaster, -showing the sculpture - beneath. A  French antiquarian society .intends  to present it to the Carn'avalet museum, though the ,price asked for it  is S-10,000.  ' Growth of tho Itenrd.  . It, has been calculated that the  hair of the beard grows at the rate  of one and one-half lines' a -week.  This will give a length of 'six' and  one-half ,inches , in the, course- of a  year.  A Choice of Three Thipgrs.  Australian judges make jokes that  would hardly pass muster in" Great Britain, says an English pa'per. One" of them  recently going the circuit arrived at a  town ,where a clean charge sheet- was  presented for his acceptance, accompanied, , of, course, with the inevitable <pair-  of white gloves. -Having nccepted/the  gift, he returned thanks in these terms:  "This proves that either the district  possesses an unusually high standard of  morality or that there is)nothing in it  .worth stealing or^that the police are not  active enough to catch criminals."  Leaving his hearers in doubt as ��������� to  which of the three .alternatives he personally favored, the jutlge smiled sweetly at-the local head of the police-force  anil retired from the beuch. - "  Animals and  Pain.  A correspondent furnishes some curious  instances of the apparent lack of highly  developed powers of feeling pain in animals. , Ile-has, he says, seen a sparrow,  'shot flying, fall to the ground and in less  than two minutes begin picking'up grains  that happened to be lying'near'it. On  another occasion a tame rabbit was deprived by a spaniel of its tail, bone and  all.'- It took-not the slightest notice of  its loss and begantfeeding again directly  it returned to its hutch.    *   ' 'A  Slim.- o      )  First Freak���������Were you present at the  living skeletons'-reunion?--  -Living Skeleton���������Yes.

"When the Duke of Wellington first  went to the court of Louis XVIII.,  the French marshals whom he bad  defeated .turned tlieir backs upon  him. The King apologized for their  rudeness. "Never mind, your Majesty," replied Wellington. "They  have got into <the habit, and they  can't get out of it."   A   Certain   Dake   and   an   Uncertain  Boy.  '  A certain duke, while driving from  the station to the park on his estate to  inspect a company of artillery, observed a ragged turchin keeping pace with  the carriage, at -his side. His .grace.*  being struck with the cleanliness of  the lad, asked him where be was going.   Tbe lad replied:  "To the park to see'the duke and sogers."  The duke, feeling interested, stopped  his carriage a.nd opened the door to  the lad, -saying' he could ride to the  park with him.  The delighted lad. being in ignorance  of whom he was, kept his grace interested with quaint remarks till tbe park,  gates were reached.  As the carriage entered it was saluted by the company and guns,  where-,  upon his grace said to the lad:  "Now, can you show me where tbe  duke is?"  The lad eyed his person all over.,  ���������then, looking at the duke, replied quite  seriously:  "Weli, I dunno, mister, butit's either  you. or mei"       v   Arrow Shootings '  In 1794 the secretary to the Turkish"  embassy in London shot an arrow,  against the wind the extraordinary distance of 415 yards and back with the  wind nearly 50 yards farther. ,  An Ankle Sprain.

Mrs.  Hiram Rinkler, {the wife of a  respected    farmer   in   South    Pelham  township,    Welland  county/Ontario,  says.���������'-It     is    with    great pleasure  that I gi\-e this tribute to tjie health  restoring     virlucs.  of Dr.     Williams'  Pink PrlJs.  When :ny daughter, Lena,  (now  thirteen    years  of  age)    began  the use    of    your, medicine,   a    little  over a year ago,  she was in a most  wretched'condition.    In fact we were  seriously alarmed lest she might not  recover.'   The" first   symptoms were  a  feeling  of    ' langour     and    weakness,  gradually   growing worse.     She   became pale, lost flesh, had little or no  appetite    and  was "apparently   going  into a' decline.      Finally the   trouble  'became complicated with a persistent  sore    throat,    which  gave  her  great  difficulty  in swallowing.    I gave her  several     advertised     medicines,     but  they did not benefit   her.   Then   she  was placed under the care of a doctor,   who  said    her  blood  was    poor  and watery,   and  her    whole    system  badly run down.    The doctor's treatment did not help her any and then,  acting on the advice of a neighbor, I  began to give her Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. The confidence with which this  medicine was urged upon us was not  misplaced,    as  I soon noticed a distinct 'improvement  in my  daughter's  condition.   The use of the pills for a  few -weeks  '. longer    .seemed to' completely   restore   , her   and, from,   that  time she has  been  a. cheerful,   .light-  hearted  girl,'    the     very,   picture    of  health.   I will always recommend Dr.  Williams'   Pink Pills  to  other suffer-1  ers, feeling; sure they will'prove quite  as  efficacious  as    they   ' did     in my  daughter's  case.  Mothers with growing-'daughters'  will .make no mistake if they insist  upon the occasional use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills; they will help them'  to develop" properly;', will..'make their  blood, rich and pure and thus-ward  off disease and decline. The genuine pills are sold only in boxesv tearing the full name, "Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for Pale People" on the  wrapper around , each box. None  other is genuine, no matter what  some'self-interested dealer may say.  If in doubt send direct to the.* Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont., and the pills will be mailed  post paid at 50 cents a box, or six  boxes for S2.50.

Such  acts as these cannot but create a  feeling of respect and admiration  for the man who, though so cruelly  and unjustly villificd, has had  nothing but the personal welfare  and interest of his employees at  heart.
