Winnipeg, Oct. 26th.���������-A pitched  ' battle between the local police and  a gang of fifty. Italian navvies, who  are working for the C.P.R., occurred  today''during its progress. Fit'ty  shots were fired; the air was also  thick with stones, clubs and other  missiles. Several were endangereby  flying debris. The trouble arose  over an attack made by the Italians  on their foreman, who . was Saturday night slugged by a gang. An  a.ttempt" was made to arrest tiie  ringleader and the battle ensued.

He ' -  dropped   dead "at   his father's feet.  Assistance   was   imrm-diately" procured from here, as well as medical  aid,   but   the poor boy was beyond  all help, arid a sorrowing group conveyed   the: remains to   town.-   "Mr  Abrams h'-ld an  inquest  Monday,  the following jury being empanelled  ���������J.

The verdict  stated further that in view of the  frequency of such accidents occurring by fire aims in tho hands of  inexperienced people, the Jury  would urge that greater 'precautions'".  be taken, and the laws ro carrying  of "firearms by .'minors bo strictly  enforced. -        . .  The greatest sympathy is felt for  'the grief-striken parents, for the  loss of a son just entering manhood,  and who was an universal favourite  among his companions. He was  just completing his studies in the  High School here, and was favourite alike1 with master and school  fellows.

"Let  me  only   play,"  she said;     and  tlie air   of  an     old  minuet     sounded'  ! forth,' as soft and   light  as  if- it had .  piano,     on     others     she    would not  touch     a key, even     if    her husband  begged   her.     She  would     sometimes  sleep   till   noon,     at   others      startle  Lucie   by  meeting  her   in   the     early  morning; as she came out of the gar- > with'such  den'with  fresh flowers for her.  boudoir.     She  would-often  ride  hours   alone,     without   saying  thing  to Xjucie or her husband,  would-then  be tired  and  worn  oa, her  sofa. ���������   ~  Herr Weber let her follow .every  whim. lie appeared to boar these  changing moods with perfect calmness. . No contradiction, no caprice  upset' his composure, he always  treated her with the same gentleness  and forbearance.. But lie ceased to  ask her (o drive'out with him; she  had repeatedly declined.- and after 'a  few days, he made no more mention  or anything that went on in the  house or on the estate, as he had  received no other answer than "Ah!  is  it so?"  So  there was  nothing  for  him     to  do  but to speak to Lucie of    house-  when   Hortense     was  cause he had asserted 'that he had  caught Herr von Lowen cheating at  cards; the count had declined to give  him satisfaction, because he considered it beneath his dignity to fight  a. man. and Herr von Lowen bad .disappeared that same day,  leaving- no trace behind him. It was  supposed he had gone somewhere    in  , Belgium;,'but it was hoped,that ��������� the  police would be able to find him.

The ideaL woman is a woman'Witb--  out an ideal,-says Mrs. F. H. Williamson's "Book of Beauty." She Is easy to  live with. She is worth living for., She  is worth dying for. She is the high  light in the charcoal drawing of'humanity, man being the charcoal. ������������������ She  is the skylight in the edifice of the human life. She has no history. She has  no story. She is the rhythm which  transforms the prose of life into poetry. She wears a reasonable" hat at matinees. She is too clever to talk of woman's rights: she takes tbem. She  wears frocks that match her hair; she  does  not dye  her  hair  to  match  her,  frocks.  She helps her husband to build up a  future for himself and never seeks to  rake up his past.   She believes that a  theory is the paper fortress of .the immature and that a clergyman may <*till  be a man.   She knows that when men  talk about aivoman being good looking  they   mean   hat  she  is   well   dressed,  though  tbey don't know it.   She does  not insist upol her husband's eatiug up  the   cueumbet   sandwiches    left   over  from one of he- parties.  She eats them  herself and sui'ers in silence.  She is not s-ch a fool us to  fancy  ' that any one i! ever convinced by argument.    She  loe-A   not   reason.   .She  loves.  She does'not believe that a man  can  love only oce or only  one.   She  herself prefers*->ving much to loving  many.  She belie es that the first woman was a hierog,*phic inscription and  that every avouuV is but a "squeeze"  of Eve.  Sho Unowi that the key to the  inscription is love.shc knows that every  real  woman  t the  ideal   woman,  the fact being tha''evei-y idea of the  ideal  woman  is.wl>|iy  dependent on  the idealist, and ev*y woman "v. ho. is  idolized is, idealized.',  Table  Covers<of Japanese Xaplzin*.  "Table coA'ers made,of, Japanese napkins make a pretty effect.' About thirty "napkins are required for one cover.  A'thin'sheet of wadding is placed between coA*ers formed of four napkins  arranged in a square, and the tablecloth is thus made reversible. A fringe  is an essential bit of decoration, and  twenty-four napkins are required for  the, making. They, aro slashed rather,  fine, each napkin being- folded once,.and  a double row utilized for the fripge.'  A very pretty cover is made by using  'napkins which show a design of cups  and saucers "or pottery in Japanese effect. These napkins are not as easily'  .procured as those ornamented Avith  ordinary flower'patterns. Napkins having similar designsf are preferable.^ all  green or blue, pink or "corn color. ^Some  dainty covers are formed'of napkins in  delft colorings.

Tho 'first' pictures taken were, very  poor and unprodtictJA-e of data. The  picture just taken, hdweA'cr,- shows  much more, plainly the star's luminosity, and it is believed that 'until  August 27;, upon clear'-nights, the  light will ,be even stronger and the  outlines more definite.  Already^ the comet is about seA'en-  teen or eighteen times as brilliant as  when 'first discoA*ered, seA*eral weeks  ago, and "it Avill undoubtedly ���������proA'e  to   be-the most  brilliant   in'years.

Tho  neck must be held erect, both to prevent and cure these ugly defects, and  also a regular course of arm exercises-  is equally necessary. The arms must  be raided vertically, the lungs being inflated at the same time Avith long, deep  breaths. In bringing the arms to the  side again care should be taken that  the elboAvs are kept in position. A  semicircular movement of the arms is  also an excellent exercise, but the cl-  Ixnvs must be kept rigid or else the  hollows in the neck will be increased.  Tlie Price of Slaves.  The prices of slaves varied very  greatly in different parts of the south  in antebellum day's. In .states like  South Carolina or Louisiana, where  slaves were always in demand, much  more was paid for them than in the  border states like Kentucky and Missouri, where they could easily run  away. In New Orleans $1,800 %;$2,-  500 was often paid for a good' carpenter or'blacksmith, who in Kentucky  or Missouri would not have brought  more than half as much. Many slave  traders made a regular business of buying in the border states and selling in  Mobile. New Orleans or Charleston,  and there was ahvays a handsome  profit in the transaction. The most  risky part of the business was the  guarantee demanded that> the slave  would not run away. The time limit  was commonly thirty days, and the  matter Avas usually arranged with the  slave himself by taking his promise  and giving him $5 or 910 to stay until  the guarantee had expired.���������Exchange.

She is also foolish to lay' too much  stress upon them, since they are perishable.

Avhether or not they are accompanied by beauty.   -  Cooking litensilii.  At house cleaning time brighten tins  and other cooking utensils, put them  all in the wash boiler and place on the  fire with plenty of water and a liberal  amount of washing soda. Let them  boil for twenty minutes, remove the  wash boiler from the fire, but do not  take the tins out for three hours. At  the end of that time they will be when  washed bright and new looking.  ���������Water  Colors.

A buyer for one of the largest liquor  houses in Philadelphia who is compelled to sample enough wine and spirits every day to put an ordinary man  out of business says that buttermilk  is his salvation. "I not only buy five  or six glasses a day at the dairy restaurants or street stands." he says,  ���������"but I drink it all the time at home  instead of tea or coffee. I never touch  beer ..or anything like that. I keep a  stone crock of buttermilk in the cellar  ���������and let it get just a little stale. It is  better' then than if taken fresh. A  man who insists on drinking liquor will  find very little trouble if he takes  plenty of buttermilk. If he wants to  swear off, buttermilk will help him. It  is a splendid stomachic. Two quarts  of good buttermilk a day will cure aDy  case of nervous indigestion." -'  'hi  A  Famon* >Sew  York Bank.

The extraordinary resuscitating  poAver of light has rcceiA*cd a A*ery  curious illustration in the silver  mines at JLaurium. The mines had  been abandoned more than 2,000  years ago as unAvorkable, and consisted lor the most part of the  ".slag"' produced by the working of  the miners. An enterprising Englishman discovered that the mines, contained plenty of silver, which could  easily be removed by the superior  modern-appliances.' He discovered,  ���������however',' something far more valu-  ab'le than the silver, vi*-., some poppies of a species which had disappeared for 20 centuries, the seed of  which.had lain dormant beneath the  slag  (or 2,000 years.  When the slag >was. removed to the  furnace, the next A'isit to the mine  found the entire space coA*ered Avith a  most: gorgeous show of poppies. After their 20 centuries' rest they had  bloomed as vigorously as ever, without the aid of a single drop of Avater  or any restorative other than the  ravs of the sun.  Military  Gec*e.  Even the geese in Germany march  with military precision. Avhich m.iy'be  the reason why the famous drill style  of the German infantry is called the  "goose step." A Avriter in TraA*cl thus  describes the great goose armies which  are so interesting to the health seekers  at Bad-Nauheim:  "It is worth while to go to Ober-  Moerlen at 6 o'clock in the afternoon to  see these geese returning home from  the fields. The village is white witb  them; hundreds and thousands, regiments and brigades of geese, marching  along with military precision. ' As they  near home they separate of their own  accord; sixteen to the right, twelve to  the left, a detachment up a lane, and so  on���������all quacking loudly, but bearing-,  themselves with that keen sense of or-,  der and discipline which distinguishes  the Valeriand."

Finally  a  scientific sharp comes .tor  our. rescue and in science explains tho  phenomenon  of   the  popping  of   pop-..  corn in an extremely lucid and interesting  manner.    The  learned  gentleman  says:   y  "The.starch polygons are of such nature and-construction..'as to facilitate  expansion and render it explosive in  character. There is a fracture of a,  particle along its two radii, the endosperm swelling very considerably, tho  peripheral portions cohering with the  hull, but the fractured quarters turning back to meet below the embryo."

A chapel crowded with felons! Five  hundred murderers, thieves -anu every  variety of criminal's at worship!  This  Avas  the  unique   spectacle  the  Avriter  witnessed   .in   Kingston  Penitentialy  on a--recent Sunday.   The atmosphere  , of   tiie   prison   was   eA-eryAvhere���������   the  striped'convicts,   arnied  guards    and  barred  Avindows.  As  tlie long line dc-  ,   filed     into    the church the  big steel  doors clanged shut. ' The guards, the  warden,' three    Sanation  Army officials   and  the  writer   Avere  locked    in  ihe  room   Avith   the   prisoners.   Prob-  <abiyr no  minister  cA*er   addressed      a  harder, more reckless  and' altogether  desperate    congregation.'

The   stained  glass'of  the   AvindoAA's  and-decorative art hid'the stone and  ���������steel.     No   particular  stretch    of  the  imagination  was.required'to  feel the  religious spirit of the  occasion  Avhen  the sweet-toned  organ ,AV*as vibrating  and    the fine' voices   of   the   criminal  'chorus  were' heard.     A score  of stal-  1 wart   convicts   rep-resented the- choir,  ivlany   trained' vocalists   were  there.  An  old folon, -in glasses���������a  murderer  and   a  life man���������led,-and,'the organist, Y-ah:o of the penal colony, handled  his   instrument   with   the  skill   of    a  professional ihusioian.  The room Avas , probably one and  fifty by one hundred feet in the clear.  'Tho ceiling was high. The three Avin-  (lo'ws on each side shed a soft light  -through .the colored decorations. At  the north end an ample pulpit  stands. Tn the niche formed by each  AvindoAV, seated on a high chair, oa'-  crlooking all, was an armed guard.  No. weapons -showed,   but eA'er'y  man  Then 3rajor Archibald told the story  of the healing of the sick man in tho  pool by the market place in .Jerusalem. He explained St.   John's Aversion  of   Christ's   generosity   as   applied  in  this   instance,   hoAV   the   old   decrepit  had  been always pushed  back bA* the  stronger in the throng  as the Avaters  were  disturbed  and  the  moment    ar-  riA*ed for the hick  man   to  plunge  into   its  healing    depth   and   be    made  Avhole.     The  Salvation .Army  minis-  ter  drew a  picture of. hope from this  miracle  for    the  'wretched   criminals  yround him.    Continuing, the speaker  referred to his  work among the 'dut-  casts of other prisons.  hoAV, an   old  wiecK   had  come  to ,him  one  day  in  Toronto 'and said:     "-brother  Archibald,    I   was  in  that    pi i.son���������one  of  the convict.-,���������Avheii you 'talked to i.s  a year  ayo,   1   lelt   the,si-i.a  of  the  .Lord   suddenly  pierce -my   .soul. \ Wy  coJi'im:Jiu nt,     was    made   lighter"   at  once.

'It  Was  a  comforting    Avord' picture,-    and  the   big  crowd   of  old,   fcJoiis  were  strangely  silent'as  the  sermon  was  concluded.

Then the young' woman in  the, blue uniform and red girdle of  the Army rendered a simple, homely -  air, accompanying herself on the guitar. " Her voice blended sweetly Avitli,  the alio of her assistant and the  deep'bass of Major Archibald. Every  face among the felons lighted up  Avith pleasure.

It is an odd reflection ou the sixty  years'   development    of     the  railway  system, -that   ,th'e    road    beats     the  railway easily in  London!  The street  vehicles  travel  twenty  times   as     far  as  tho train every day,     and     carry,  ,moro passenger's.    Jt may   seem    incredible', but it 'is perfectly, true, that  the street vehicles of London  accomplish  a-journey  every  day equal   < to  twenty  times round the earth.   It is  startling,  in contrast  with this, tliat  the  trains  cover   only   25,000  .'miles,,  but the, explanation is;< of course, the,  simple fact that -for"every train there  are about fifty other vehicles.    -    ,  . There are always running ,in    Lon-<  don between'1,000 and  5,000 busses-  and  trams,   carrying  1,600,000    passengers cA'ery day. and when all these  are  full there" is  room left for nearly  3 2,000 cabs',  for     which  700    stands  are provided.

His royal highness is literally  king of ' a. mountain, for that is  about all his country amounts to.  It contains only four towns of oVer  1,000 inhabitants, and its entire'  area is less than 4,000 square miles,  but it is a mountain that has been  free for'500 yearsj and Prince Nich-  olasi ever since' his accession in 1860  has schemed, with0marvelous success,  to  keep it so.  The story of how ho did it is long  and interesting. Told in a, - few  words, however, it may be said that  he not only became the father of his  country, but the father-in-law of other'countries.    ���������  , Every inch a'warrior, .he lias twice  beaten back ' the , Turks;' a������poet and  author,   he   has ' written1- plays   Avhich  A Fastidious Clubman.

Over  each window  are beautifully-executed  mottoes���������the    work    of     some artist  Avho had earned a term in the institution.      There  seemed   a  touch      of  irony  in   the  hrst:   "The  truth  shall  make you  free.''    With  a suggestion  of the old Mosaic    doctrine    Avas the  second:  "Recompense to no man, evil  for  evil."    Then  tho  artist   got  personal   and  inscribed   the   warning   of  the J>ecalog:    "Thou     shalt not  bear  false Avitncss."    Getting back to first  principles,   and  probably   writing  the  only    sentence     familiar   to  most    of  those present,  he inscribed the homely commandment,  "Honor thy father  and thy   mother.''  In one come.* a  thin  partition had  been  erected   for   the   accommodation  of  the  15   women   coiiA-icts.

Long lines of low wooden benches    received  the  worshipers.-  As     they    marched   in,   tho lockstep,  ���������which criminals dislike so thoroughly,   was  not required.     The convicts  Bay  after along term in  prison they  become so  accustomed  to  tlie  shuff'.o  of    the     lockstep    that    they 'unconsciously  give  their  bodies  the swinging motion after  regaining their  liberty.      This     aids i to  identify  them  with their   prison:     life,    Avhich' they  hope to forget.  The regular chaplain was not present and Warden Piatt announced  that Major Archibald of the' Salvation Army, Toronto, would conduct  the service.  The Salvation Array serA'ice was a  surprise and apparently a very pleasant one for the conA-ict colony, As  the young woman Avith the poke bonnet marched into the pulpit with her  guitar every prisoner looked the interest he felt. Their emotion was  soon aroused, and they displayed it  with a freedom scarcely expected of  men charged Avith the commission of  eA'ery crime on  the calendar.  The 103rd psalm was read and the  choir rendered "Nearer my God to  Thee.'' The old murderer was leading    with     a     magr! ill cent    soprano.  audience arose and all joined in the  Doxology.

On j.Iay 20 Nelson's historic flagship, the 'Victory,' 'retired' from her  position as Admiral's flagship at  Portsmouth. She has become too old  and shaky.  She will still fly tho Avhite ensign of  the naA-y, of course, and visitors will  be permitted to go aboard her as before to see the spot where Nelson fell;  but ihe St. George's Cross of an admiral has flown from her foremast  for  tho  last  time.  She has served 138 years, and it  was a hundred years on the 20th  Way, 1903, since Admiral Nelson  first hoisted his nag at hor fore; so  the stout old heart of oak has earned  her superannuation.  Kven the least sentimental day-  tripper, has felt a thrill of emotion  Ay-hen. standing on Portsmouth Hard,  he has looked across the grey waters  of theyharbor, and seen the old ship ;  lying  still   at    her    moorings.

'���������Yes, I -know," ansAvered the student's preceptor.- "The phrase is like  that of Petronius, 'asinus in tegulis'  (an ass on the-'house top). It signifies  impossibility, a thing that will never  take place.

Her husband, Prince Peter Nicholai-  Adtch, is second cousin to the Czar.  Russia's  friendship   was  secure.

An interesting instance of the manner in which newspapers haA'e de-  aeloped in the last 3 00 years is now  being furnished by The London  Times, Avhich, since its centennial  anniversary, has each day printed a  quotation from its issue of tho same  day 100 years ago.  At this period in the last century  Napoleon Bonaparte was busily preparing to invade England A\-ith an  immense army.

Among  other forms, the Bishop of the place  is to present the Cross to him to be  kissed, on his arriA-al at the gates;  that Cross which he so grossly degraded and insulted in Egypt, by  displaying it as subject to the spiritual predominance of the Crescent.

The Elizabethan era gave A*ogue to
the button and the buttonhole/two inventions Avhich may fairly he regarded
as "important,'Since they did much to
revolutionize, dress.. The original button was wholly a product.of needlework, Avhich'Avas soon improved by the
use of a wooden mold.' The brass but-
ton is said to have' been introduced by
a Birmingham merchant in 1G89. It
took 200 years to improve on the method of sewing the cloth upon the coa*-
ered button. Then an ingenious Dane
hit upon the idea of making the button
in two parts and,clamping them together, with' the cloth between. Buttons
are noAv made of almost everything,

which, treated chemicaih', become as

There is not  the slightest doubt now that there  is a strong sectional fc'eling in the  ���������partv.

Mr Mounce having previously  made enquiries "as to the size and  capacity of the boilers tendered oii.  After discussing the various phages  piesentcd by the tenders with different boile.'S, it Avas decided to  acei-pt that of Mr Cookson of Victoria, for a steam heating apparatus  with a second-hand boiler which  has bei-n in use a short time, of a  capacity ' f 1800 feet, for the sum  installed, of $1060 This boiler is  above what is required, in capacity,  ':and it is intended that tlie extra  size will save much in time and  care. The same boiler, new, would  be of much .greater cost, and as the  contractor; states it is in good condition, and us a portion of the contract .price will be reserved for a  time after installment of the plant,  to ensure good working, we venture  to say that the public will have  every reason to be satisfied with the  system .when completed. The building is badly in need of heat at present, and the only thing to be deplored is the delay in placing the  apparatus.  After this decision was arrived at  it  was  learned  that the boiler in  question bad bejn .sold, so another  meeting was called Friday evening,  and a new " Bright Idea " boiler,  of 1300 feet capacity was de. ided  on, with Mr Co-icon's tender, at  $1075  '   (  nswmrv~w m\imm\,t><*ww*3a/iKim**a**v-JaanivvaiaMn  School   Board Meeting;.     i  The  School  Board   met  oiv the  * '  21st inst.,. all -tlie members being  pres'-nt.
