In spite of the.hope  ���������expressed in the sober journals of both  countries, that the matter would be  amicably arranged. It is a surety that  the French naval and military authorises  are making feverish preparation fpr war,  and though calm are the ' British dock  yards, it is the calm of preparedness and  signed orders have been*,received there  from the admiralty, indicating ihe fact  that Great Britain and France are on the  b|ink of war.   -  QUEEN AVERSE^rO WAR.  ���������   , London, Qctr 24���������Telegrams from Balmoral  indicate   tjhat  Queen Victoria is.  following the 'tread of events with considerable'chagrin.

DAMAGE TO CROPS.     ���������  Winnipeg, Oct. 21.���������The long   contin.;  uance of the awful   weather this  country  has been experiencing for weeks is nothing short of an obsoluie calamity,      Millions of dollars worth   of Actual   damage  to crops has -already.-been done   and  the  destruction is still going on.    Various es- -  tirruu.es of the percentage of   crops   that,  has either   been   completely   ruined   or,  badly damaged havebeen made,  and   it  seems safe to place it at one ��������� half.

Thert Is a Biff Market for Canadian  Goods in This Country, But It, Will  Take Much Time, Effort and Expense  to Secure It���������Points for Shippers.  A Canadian who has recently returned  from Peru states that there is a big market for our goods in    that   country,    but  it is one -which wo will have to   cultivate  rnuch more than wo are now doing  if we  get our   share.    There   are   no Canadian  ' travellers looking after the trade.  On tho  other hand,   I find English and   German  drummers   everywhere.     Krupp's   agent  ha.-; just left here.  There are two English  dry goods men   on   the   sumo  lloor with  mo in my hotol.  They havo large sample-  rooms, and have long tabic.-, covered with  every variety of cotton and woolen goods.  Ono of those drummers is   from    Manchester and   the   other   is  from Nottingham.   They have both boon for weeks going through Central America   on   mules,  and they   are   now   working   their   way  down this coast.' They stop at every large  port and work the   trade.    Ono   of them  will go from   here   to   Bolivia,   and will  ���������visit, the interior   cities   of  that country,  carrying   his   sample?   for   hundreds   of  miles on mules.    These   men   havo a big  stock with them. .  The   Manchester man  tells me   ho   carries   about   two   tons of  samples from port   to   port,   and that he  has to load about a dozen mules when ho  goos into the interior.    The   Nottingham  man sells on   commission ami   pays   his  ,own   expenses,   which   he   tells   me are  ���������bout $10 gold a   day.   , He  says that his  house has three   men    to   work the West  Indies and Spanish America.  Ho takes in  Mexico, Central America and tho  Pacific  coast.    Another   salesman   has the West  Indies and   the   coast   of   the  Caribbean  Sea, and a third Brazil, Uruguay and tho  Argentine.  This is'tho usual arrangement  of the European houses for working   this-  tradel    All of these European   drummers  speak Spanish, they know   the   countries  well and   are   posted   as to the financial  standing of tho various buyers.  One reason why the Mother Country,  England, has so secure a hold on this  trade is that it was through the efforts of  Mr. M. P. Grace, head 'of. the London  banking firm of-M.-P. Grace & Co., that  the settlement of the Peruvian debt was  brought about by the organization of tho  Peruvian   .corporation.  This corporation was an English syndicate, which assumed the foreign   debt   of  The Germans are fast monopolizing  the trade everywhere. Twenty years ago  , there were no German houses and from  twenty to thirty big English houses.  Now there are more than a score of big  German establishments and only one or  two large English ones. The Germans are  iriving out the English everywhere. They  are unscrupulous as to methods and will  do anythinjz to get trade. They are, in  fact, tho pirates of the commercial world.

SUMMER  MILLINERY.  "NICOLAS PIEROLA, PRESIDENT OF PERU.  Peril, amounting to almost $300,000,000,  .and in return Peru gave the corporation  all of its railways, tho right to mine  guano on the.Peruvian Government territory to the amount of 3,000,000 tons.  and a large area of coffee land on tho  other side of the Andes, which is now  being developed. Of course no one except  Mr. Grace knows just what tho profits  of this deal were, but I have heard it said  that he alone made not h-ss than $1,000,-  000 out of it. Thi3 was nob a large sum  ���������considering tho magnitude of the interests involved and tho diplomatic aud business skill required to handle them in  ���������competition with Dreyfus & Co. and  others of the biggest capitalists of Europe.  To-day the Graces do all the goading and  shipping of the guano for the Peruvian  corporation, employing hundreds of men  for the purpose. They also own cotton  plantations in southern Peru, and have  the management ot the Vitarto colion  mills above Luna, which are tlie largest  cloth mills of Peru.  Speaking of shipping goods,he said that  manufacturers did not study the wants  of their customers and try to satisfy them  as did those of England, Germany,  France and Italy. They don't pack their  goods well nor mark them plainly. All  goods sont to South America should bo  put in now boxes. Thon you can tell if  they have been opened on the way. If  they are put in second-hand boxes and  ronailed they are sure to go there with  something missing. It is easy to open an  old box. The steamers spseiiy the conui-  tion of each box and do not hold themselves responsible if the cases are secondhand. If goods are not stolen on tho  ships they may be stolen at the custom  houses. The marking of the boxes shot'.Id  be with, letters from six to ten inches  long. The Germans are the best shippers  in this regard. They use letters ten inches  long and two inches Wide and put them  on so plainly that it is impossible to mistake the directions. Our shippers will use  letters of not. over two inches in length.  Their marks often rub off and the boxes  are lost.  Samples should always bo shipped a3  samples, and every factory should have a  copy of the tariff laws of the countries to  which they ship and study to pack so a3  to cause the least cost to their customers.  Goods that will go into small cases should  not be put into large ones, as freight is  charged for by measurement. Every German has a copy of the tariff of every  ���������country   to   which   It   sends   goods, and  Fashionable  Triinmiufrs���������The   New Crush  Straws���������Stylish Mats aud Toques.  Millinery is made easy by the ma-  teriah; prepared for the purpose. There  is mi immense range in which chiffon  is crimped aud gathered ��������� for millinery  purposes. Chiffon is plaited, with twisted silk representing a sort of pattern  upon it, aud it has also been brought  out with lace. Then Ihoro arebouil-  lonnes in shaded and checked fabrics and  tulle with'bold luce flowers in relief.  The hut crowns, in tulle and of liberal  timensions, are covered with worked  scrolls' in silver and gold. There is a  novel material, bright and glistening,  with, open checks, made of ���������horsehair.  It can be employed very effectively, as  Ncan distinct motifs in embroidery and  appliques on the crowns tor brims.  There is plenty of white chiffon'with  black lace appliques and thick lace for  millinery outlined with chenille.  Crush hats,, which, are new this season, lessen the amount of ��������� trimming  needed and are therefore in a way economical.' These are of satin braid and  the crowns dent' in here and bulge out  there in a-manner quite impossible to  describe, but by tho readiness with  which they have been adopted evidently,  fascinating to the feminine fancy. Some  of the shapes iiv straw hats are so .queer  that they can be likened to nothing under the skies. Chip hats have found favor again, especially in <the form of  black ones with'brims faced with white.  This renders them less ctrying than the  all black chip. Although an attractive  material, chip is not so becoming as tho  fancy straws.    There is a great variety  THP.EE STTLISII HATS.  of rough and comparatively inexpensive  straws this season that are useful and  adaptable to many occasions and people.  The cut shows throe exceedingly stylish examples of summer millinery. The  npper hat,is in heliotrope colored fancy  straw trimmed with silk ribbon, poppies, chiffon and black lace laid in a  roll on the brim. Next is a lady's cycling hat with a band of bright red velvet and trimming of plaid ribbon, red  and black. Third conies a hat of fancy  -basket straw trimmed with chiffon  edged with narrow blue velvet and  black coq feathers in a largo cluster at  the left side.  Toques are no less fashionable than  hats. A most picturesque one is iu soft  green straw with a crown of tuscan  straw gauze. Rose foliage stands up at  one side and under the brim is a cluster  of red roses. A new plait of blended  crinoline and straw in the fashionable  shade of tangerine orange forms the material of a handsome toque.  Hash With Tartar Sauce.  Mix together one pint each of finely  chopped cold meat freed from fat and  gristle and cold boiled potato. Moisten  with one scant cupful of good stock,  add one teaspoonful of Worcestershire,  one teaspoonful of onion juice and salt  aud pepper to taste. In a frying pan  melt one tablespoonful of nice beef dripping! Turn in tho hash and spread it  evenly over the pan. Over the top put  one tablespoonful of tho dripping in  bits, cover aud stand where the fire is  not too hot for about 20 minutes. When  the moisture is partly dried out, .uncover and draw forward so that it may form.  a crust underneath, turning it from side  to side so as to color evenly. Roil the  hash over like an omelet, turn it out  on a heated dish and serve with the following hot sauce:  Mix together one teaspoonful of lemon  juice, one-quarter of a teaspoonful of  salt, one tablespoonful of vinegar and  one tablespoonful of Worcestershire and  heat over hot water. In a small saucepan put two heaping tablespoonfuls of  butter and set over the fire until a pale  brown. Strain into the first mixture and  serve at once in a gravy boat.���������Table  Talk.  k   GENEALOGIST   WHO    FINDS   YOUR  PEDIGFtEE WHILE YOU  WAIT.  rhe Dnu S'uifc Case For Women���������Interesting Marriage Statistics ��������� Hints ��������� on  Plain Sewinp���������Our Brave Ida Lewis.

Some people do this work  for themselves and fail to find what they  want. .Others hire it done, and in this  case they generally get a pedigree, and  even a coat of arms if they want one.  There are men and women who make a  business of looking up pedigrees for those  who employ them. Among thosowho may  be called professional genealogists is Mrs.  Laura   A., Chamberlain,   whose  timo . is  constantly occupied  in  this way.  The  work and lime required in obtaining a  clear record of family," sho says, ','is very  great and long. It often takes months to  trace,successfully one branch of a family.  When I havosucceeded in obtaining all the  material required. Icopy it into a volume,  which is called'The Record of My Family,' and'which givosa clear idea of one's  ancestors for many generations back.''  .People in genoral have very little idea  of the time required to make a successful  ancestral search. A woman finely dressed  and bearing the marks of affluence came  into tho library ono day. .She was bent on  obtaining her pedigree and, having found  several books which sho required, started  to work. She did not got \ery far, how-  over, before she becamo troubled, and Mrs.  Chamberlain wont to her assistance. Together they worked out tho beginning of  a very good chart. The woman thanked  Mrs. Chamberlain and took hor departure,  evidently feeling highly edified by her success. But the next day she returned.

The Dress Suit Case For Women.  Every one knows that the dress suit case  has become the fashionable fad for all  women to cairy. The dainty little valises  that hold almost nothing thutwas serviceable aro rapidly bocoming obsoleto with  tho woman who knows what she wants  and how to carry it on a long journey. In  short journeys, too, tho dress suit caso  serves a good purpose. College girls wero  "the first ones to start this fashion. They  found it of .inestimable advantage in being able to put a flimsy dress, with its accessories, in the dress suit case and running to town when going to spend . an  evening with their friends. It saved tho  40 cents that tho expressman charges to  bring in,a-package. As for small valises,  it is impossible to get anything in one  that will 6crve overnight for a party or  even a dinner. Thereforo tho college girl's  dress suit enso has becomo tho thing.  After a few of those trig looking collogi-  ates caiuo into town with the natty.-greon  or yellow covered cases, with its brass  lockers, every woman began to get them,  and now it is the most ordinary and most.  useful thing'-for a. woman, fashionable or  economical, whewflnds the prico of one in  hor purse to have ono of these cuses among  her baggage.  There is one trouble, howovor, with a  dress suit case as it stands. It is this���������if  you are traveling and put all your silver  articles and toilet bottles in this affair,  unless they are wrapped very carefully  they are apt to be jumbled up and become  scratched and may be broken. The small  valise had that trouble for a few years,  and immediately a design was made by a  leading jeweler for leather compartments  to hold each brush or piece of silver or  bottle. The price immediately went up,  but the convenience was inestimable. For  now that every woman travels with her  silver toilet articles it is impossible to put  thorn in a heap and not have them severely defaced, aud as for wrapping each in  paper or in handkerchiefs that is entirely  inconvenient, to say nothing about its  looking ugly and untidy when one opens  the case.���������-Chicago Tribune.  SAMPSON'S   RISE  FROM  WOODCHOP-  PER  TO   REAR  ADMIRAL.  How the Bright Boy Whom Squire South-  wick Helped Into -the Navy Developed  Into a Man In Whom the Nation Puts  Its Trust.  Acting Rear -Admiral Sampson, the  man on whom,the eyes of the nation havo  been centered for the last two weeks, is a  man of the people. Neither wealth nor  birth has helped him win his oak leaf  and anchor shoulder straps. Brains alou"  were his heritage. His father was a farmhand, a day laborer, who earned a living  in a rural community by doing a day"-*  work here and another there, split.ri.:g  wood, for one man, plowing for a not her  and helping out in haying t imc'for a third.  Such are tho possibilities of the republic.  Although a graduate of tho academy at  Annapolis William T. Sampson practically  "came ��������� into tho navy through the hawse-  pipe," as tho sailors have it. Sons of farmhands arc- not commonly appointed naval  cadets, even in this democratic country.  As��������� his father was a farmhand, so young  Sampson was a chore boy. He "worked  out" too. He split, wood, raked hay and  dug potatoes at so much per day', and it  wasn't so very much cither.  But William Sampson was no ordinary  choro boy. He liked books, and he studied  hard, not because he had to, but because  he wanted to. Even in a little country  village a boy who shows merit is bound to  be appreciated. Young Sampson was. The  local dignitary, "Squire" South wick cf  .Palmyra, N. Y., where Sampson was  born, took an interest in him, and when  the "squire's" friend, E. B. Morgan, was  .elected to congress Southwick used his influence to have ''that Billy Sampson"-appointed to the Naval academy. He must  have felt -somewhat ill at, ease among so  many young aristocrats, but if ho did he  let no one know it. ,'''',  It was in 1857 that ho went to Annapolis, so When he graduated at the head of  his. class' four years later he found the  times ripe for his, services. Without reviewing his naval career it is of interest  right1 here to mention an incident which  , happened to him early in the civil war.  He was a- lieutenant and executive officer on tho gunboat Patapsco, which was  part of - the blockading squadron off  Charleston. Ono day the war department  decided that Charleston,, must be taken.  The Confederates had sowed the harbor  ���������thick with-inincs and torpedoes, so Lieutenant ��������� Sampson was ordered to take the  Patapsco in and clear them out., It meant  almost'certain destruction, but someone  had to do it.- In under the belching guns  of the forts steamed the gunboat.  It, was a .spectacular progress. Every  fort yelled a murderous welcome. ' Steadily "the little ship moved on . her business.,  ACTING REAP. ADMIRAL SAMPSON*.  The heights wero lined with sharpshooters, and soon they began to sweep her  decks with bullets that came in whistling  sheets like rain in a sudden storm.  Sampson ordered tho marines and sailors  below to lie behind the iron protection,  but himself kept his'position on the bridgo  all alone. ���������  Then the firing ceased with startling  suddenness. The next instant tho ironclad went up into the air, rent into fragments by a giant torpedo.- Lieutenant  , Sampson was blown into the air nnd fell  into the water 100 foot away. Twenty-fivo  of his crow wero struggling near.him. The  rest, more than 70, had been lorn, to  pieces. Tho floating men wero picked up,.  Sampson among them; Ho was ready for  duty next day; as serene as if a flight on a  hoisted ship were only a holiday experience. He was made a lieutenant commander the next year. Promotion was  slower after the war closed. Sampson became a full captain in 18S9.  A keen, shrewd man is Sampson, a man  who knows every branch of naval theory  and practice as few know it. Ho is never  impulsive, never hurried, never at a loss.  He is almost a recluse. You hear no anecdotes about Sampson, no funny stories or  witty replies of his. In all this country  there is only one place where they speak  of him as "Billy" Sampson, and that  place is "up in Wayne county,'' tho section  of New York state in which lie was born.  He is a.man of one idea, and that idea is  the navy of-the United States. His whole  life is his profession.  Admiral Sampson is a rigid disciplinarian and has keen eyes. He rarely forgets  a face, though ho has not so good a memory for names, and he is quick in the reading of character.  Sampson has a fine, firm face, the lower  part masked by a close cropped beard liberally sprinkled with the gray tint of  crusted sea salt.  He is of medium height, neither very  stout nor very thin. More than most officers who have spent much time ashore  Sampson has the genuine sailor's roll in  his walk. If you wero 1,000 miles inland  and were to see him moving along with  his short, quick steps, feet firmly planted  wide apart and shoulders swaying, you  would think at once of the misty furrow3  of the sea and the spindrift from its-wave  tops and the pipe of the cheerful wind.  You couldn't help it.       ���������>  And if you saw the keen, bronzed face  you'd think of cutlasses, hoarse shouts of  command and the locked yardarms chafing  each other in the open.  But at nearer view one  might hesitate,-  then change his mind.  He would set down ���������  the  man, as a scholar, a  thinker, and  in,  none of his conjectures would ho bo wrong.  These are some of, me personal charae--  teristics of tho "-:i-.i who from a chore boy  became an nd-....-al. and as' such was in  trusted wi.;; a,task on whose successful  accomplishment t ho heart of the nation  ��������� woj? set.

Orthographical Errors Spoil a Good. Man's  Temper.  Some- time ago a colored man hung  out a sign on his house which, read,  "For Sail."      '  He happened to be at tho gato when a  white man came along and said:  "You'll never get an offer for your  house with any such spelling as that."  Tlie owner of tho place was greatly  puzzled to improve tho orthography,  but finally to'A his wife's advice and  made ic read, "For Sell."  This .seemed  to ho all right for a day  er two, and then a schoolboy halted and .  said:  "If you don't fix that sign, all the  children will be laughing at you."  There was another convention of tho  family to seo whero tho mistake came  in,' and the sign was made to read, "Fur  Sail." .  It had not been up an hour when an  old colored man came along and queried: '  "Does you mean dat dis placo am fur  Sally? What yer gwino tor gib de placo  to Sally fur?"

Mr. Hayes says:���������"F.or upward of  twenty years I have suffered , from  weakness and pains in the back. Some  four years'ago  niy trouble was intensi-  , fied . by Sciatica settling in my right  leg. What I suffered seems almost beyond description. I .employed three  ���������doctors but all to no purpose; I had- to  give up work entirely, and almost despaired of life.    This, continued for two  .years���������years filled with . misery. At  this time I was advised to- try Dr. WilT  Hams' Pink-Pills, and after using six  boxes both ,tiie sciatica' and the weak-  .nessain the back which had troubled, mo  so long, were gone. , I was again a well  man aud'feeling fifteen years younger  than before I began the pills. Nearly  two years has passed since I discontinued the, use of Dr. Williams' ��������� Pink  Pills, and in  that time no  symptom of  . the trouble has shown itself.

John Peters3 an Italian was lying upon  the traok near'the stone quarry when the  train came along Sunday evening. His left'  arm was across' the rail and his head between'  the sleepers. The car wheel took off the  arm near the shoulder, and injured the facer  somewhat. The space between tho  cow-catcher and the sleepers was so slight  it seems a miracle he was not instantly  killed.
