If suits amid have been brought  against the Co. on behalf of daily woik-  iiaeiU there would be some sense in the  jwcjeeeding, btu how can it be held responsible for contract men being in the  mine a/ew minutes after hours, when ia  manycaees^ perhaps all cases, they are  detained accidently? No cases have  been brought against the Fuel Co, in  :_Nttnaimo. nor apparently has any effort _  been made in that direction^ and it looks,  as though a scheme has originated from  the Socialist party to harass Mr Dunsmuir and to cripple a prommant industry, which gives employment to many.  If the men themselves were affected by  long hours, it would be different, but every  miner knows he has an 8.hour shift, and  if he stays longer than iliat in the pit,, he  does so from self inclination, or because  unavoidably detained.  jS>  "���������v?i  otrn  Dissolution Sale  ���������������j|====$> goes merrily along.n<s^==  ������H*WW������H*PWi���������>������w���������������n iiiii ii������������������������������������������������������������������������nr ������������������������������������������m  If you will watch our Ads,  and read them carefully you  will be we3I paid for your  trouble, .especially so during  this Sale, as w������: are offering  you Goods at such prices that  we really could not think of  doing under ordinary condi-  tiont. 13ut the tact is our  Block must be reduced at  least $ 10,000 before the change  takes place, hence our reason  for such a sacrifice,  3D.BE1SS OOQJDS J^JlOP'T*  50 In.

At last her flushed cheeks and dangerously sparkling eyes alarm him.  He attempts to expostulate with  ber. "She will tire herself out," he  tells her when he finds himself alone  with her for one brief moment.  But Vivian docs not heed him, and  he draws back into the shadows of  the roses and watches her, sighing  because he can not enjoy this with  the same zest as these gay young  fellows with whom Vivian is dancing.  Vivian flashes by with flushed  cheeks and starry eyes.  "How charming Vivian Cameron is  to-night," a gentleman remarks. "If  I were the poor old squire I should  feel strongly tempted to check such  conduct. Her actions are the common talk of the room, for in no mat-  tor in what part of it she may be  she keeps her eyes fixed upon handsome Frederick Castleton."  "how blind Squire Cameron must  be not to notice it," a lady exclaims,  with a shrug of her pretty shoulders.  "Does he not know that his wife and  Frederick Castleton were lovers  once? Frederick Castleton has left  the ball-room," she whispers, " and  seo how quickly Vivian excuses herself from her partner. She is leaving the room,  too."  They pass on and a death-white  face peers after them from behind a  pillar of roses.  Squire Cameron presses his hand in  a dazed way to his forehead. The  words have given him a mortal  wound.  He staggers out of the ball-room;  the lights hurt him and the flowers  sicken him.  -���������Under-the-green-surchr-as-he-passes-  through it, he sees Helena and beckons her to him.  For one moment they are alone together while her partner is bringing  her an ice.  "Helena, child," ho says huskily,  "I shall not return to the ball-room  to-night, I feel sick. I am going to  my own room."  "Oh, papa," cried Helena in alarm,  her heart going out to him at tho  sight of his distressed face, "lot mo  go with you and attend to you. How  can I dance knowing you are ill?  Please let me go."  In her excitement she forgot that  she had addressed him othor than  was hor usual shy custom���������Mr. Cameron.  She noticed with wonder that in������  stead of going toward his room, as  ho had said, he wont into the  grounds.  He could see a woman's dress glimmering through tho trees, and with  light footsteps Squiro Cameron followed, and tho figure which ho know  to bo Vivian's stopped short before  tho dark figure of a man sitting on  a garden bench by the fountain. Tlio  moonlight fell full upon hts faco, and  he saw it was Frederick Castleton.  CHAPTER VIII.  For ono moment Gilbert Cameron  gazed���������gazed in an agony words arc  weak to describe*���������at tho Blonder figure in roso pink and law, on which  tho moonbeams foil so brilliantly  among tho green foi in go.  Ho stobd and lookod at hor, his  eyelids never twitching, tho muscles  of his mouth inner relaxing from  that hut'd,, icy, pitiless compression.  lio saw Vivian clasp her white,  jeweled hands over hor heart, and  tho leaves of thu roses sho woro tn  her bodice (ell in u showor upon tha  Saxon houd bont on tho fountain's  brim.  Frederick sprung to his feot, and  Vivlnn held out her whlto hands U)  him. Then tho light fudod Irom tlfft  moon; tho world grew dark.  Gilbert t'ainorun could hear no  more. Wheeling suddenly around In  tho path, ho groped his way back  to the houso.  The light of hie llfo hnd gono down  in sudduu darknt'.sH. Vivian did not  lovo him. It wus tho old, old story  of May and December.  Of all the pains a human heart can  suffer, thu keenest ami most bitter is  tho knowledgo that tho lovo wo hnvo  churihht'd in our bosom in tho winter  Ol tUu hot, i.a.->l u.-> asivJu J or a fui'c.'i  younger fan;.  With a slow, measured step Glltwrt  Cameron to-entered tho houso ond  gained his own npartmonts, touched  tl-r.

"Hhftll I call him*fimirron. sir'"  asked tho man, alarmed at the death-  white face turned t������W*������/d hnn.  aire,  in  a voice  tnat rang  trumpet through the roomv,  uko a  Out in tho moonlighted garden  Vivian and Frederick Castleton were  walking slowly back toward the  house.  He had started up with a 6tartled  cry as the roso leaves fell upon his  face, astonished at finding her beside him with outstretched hands.  "Frederick," sho said, softly, "you  are In trouble. Can I help you? I  saw how white your faco was when  you left the ball-room, and I���������I  thought I might comfort you, perhaps. I know your secret," she went  on, with something very like reckless despair in her voice. "Your  friend, Herbert Renwick, is too attentive to Helena to please youi"  "Vivian���������Mrs. Cameron���������" he  cries, flushing to the temples.  But she interrupted him in a voice  quivering with emotion.  "I have come to warn you, Frederick," she said, tremulously. "Everv  one noticed how miserable you were.  You carry your heart in your eyes  when you watch that girl. Arc you  mad, to allow your heart to go out  to her?" she cried, bitterly, "But  for her, Squire Cameron's wealth  would have ,been divided between  you and me���������I should have insisted  upon sharing with you. Hhe hns  robbed you of your share of the inheritance, Frederick. You should  hate her���������ay, hate hor with a vengeance."  Frederick Castleton laughed aloud,  and the light deepened in his bonny  blue eyes.  "Mrs. Ca.meron," he said, eagerly,  "believe me, no thought of repining  ever entered my mind, and," he continued, passionately, "if the wealth  of_the__ whole world_ were mine, I  "Would^lTOl^ayTr^TTjeautTful^Tel"  ena's feet. I never cease thanking  Heaven that she has come back to  enjoy it." ������  "You love her: Frederick," gasped  Vivian, in a low,  intense voice.  "You have no right to <niesti>n  me, Mrs, Cameron," he said, proudly, "Yes, why should I not own to  you wheut I owned to my own heart  long since. Yes, I Jove her as mun  nover loved woman before.''  A shrill laugh fell from Vivian*?  lips.  She lifted her white face, and thore  was a look uoon it *hot ho ���������"'���������"Mid  not understand.    He wished the Interview all over.  "Fredorick," sho whispered, "I  warn you. Helena Camoron is a  flirt. Sho could love no man. She  will marry the wealthiest man who  lays his fortune at hor feet."  "Do not judge that beautiful young  girl by yourself, Mrs. Cameron," he  said, impatiently; "sho is not one  to sell horsolf for gold. When fcho  marries It will bo���������for love,"  "Do not remind mc of tho greatest  folly of my lifol" cried Vivian,  bursting into tears. "Oh, how I  wish it wore to bo dono over n^am.  I would chooso lovo, and not wealth,  Frederick," she cried out, passionately.  "Mrs. Cameron!" oxclaimed Frederick Castloton, coldly, "I have no  causo ta rogrot that which wns but  g passing fancy long ago, I bog of  you to remember this. I trust you  will nover mention the past to my  uncle, or Miss Helena," ho added,  earn.\scly.  Ho profTorod her his arm with cold,  calm courtesy, nnd Vivian wnlkod  back to tho glittering ball-room with  him tn perfect silence, hor honrt in  a dangerous whirlwind of conflicting emotions.  lie loved Holona. Thon It. was  no delusion after all, nnd tho thought  torturorl hor to mudnoss. They parted in tho corridor.

"What enn ho want with him?"  she thought, in wonder, "I must  know."  Hor duty as hostess required   hor  ^tc.ic4.vi;   ������U   Vim   ini.u-1 tuna,   iuul      hho,  jnit thr Ihnn.ijlit irons her.

Helena looked so slmplo nnd girlish in her plain whlto dross of fleecy  tnrlotnn, with no ornaments navo  tbo gnlden*henrtod pond-Wlo* nn hor  braast and in her brown curls; it was  no wonder vonn-r rfrls envied her  nnd tho gentlemen ridnri'd hor.  The hours that follow soom almost  like a dre/im to Vivian, Bho flits  through the lights ,md the brilliant  Moom llko a butterfly, with tho one  thought in her heart���������she will bo  %ho    "!.'���������������������������'      ������,|  u���������, tm.v���������%"rn������l������urUit  Castleton     shall not see now aeepiy  he has hurt her.  She dances every dance; the flush ]  on her face deepens, and her blue,  steely eyes glitter like stars. She  is recklessly brilliant and witty with  her partners, and those who know  her best look at her in wonder.  Twice during those gilded hours  Squiro Cameron sends for her. He  has relented, and urges her to come  to his bedside for but one moment.  Ho has lain down, weak and ill.  "He can wait until the bail is over.  I shall not go to him now."  That is the message Vivian sends  to him���������the message the squire receives, with a bitter sigh, as ho  tosses restlessly on his pillow.  Hulf nn hour after Lawyer Banks  quits Squire Cameron's apartment,  Helena, standing amid the flowers  and lights, looks suddenly and anxiously around. She has just missed  the squiro.  "Ho has not returned," she  thought, with a strange thrill of  pain, remembering how white his  face had been as he turned from her.  During tho few moments of intermission that followed, she made her  way to Vivian's side.  "Mr. Cameron is ill, I fear," she  slad, hurriedly. "He has not been  in the ball-room ' for an hour or  more."  "He is in his room���������not well, perhaps. But I shall not dance attendance upon his whims for all that,"  declared Vivian, scornfully. "He does  not like to see me enjoying myself���������-  he wants-to spoil my pleasure, but  he shall not, for I will not go near  him until after the ball. I guess he  will get along all right until that  time."  "Then I shall go to him," declared Helena, indignantly. Mrs. Cameron curled her red lips snecringly.  "As you choose," she said, shrugging her pretty shoulders.  Helena turned quickly away. "I  shall be back in time for my. waltz  with Mr. Castleton,". she told herself, blushing as she met his eyes  bent earnestly upon her.  But before ho- could seize the opportunity and make his way to her  side, Helena had slipped from the  room, and in an instant the brilliant throng of gay young girls, the  lights and music of the ball-room  lost all charm for the two young  men���������who stood hear each other,  gazing ruefully after her.  Both had reached the limit of burn an ' uatlence,.���������aa.Jthev__lfloked muxs  dorously at each other,  then at the  door.  Helena was not the first young  girl whose glorious beauty had driven rivals to desperation. |  Herbert Renwick's face was white \  and determined, Frederick Castleton's was flushed, and from the angry, lowering glances they cast at  each other, from the fierce light in  the eyes that had once been full  of the warmest friendship, any one  who had watched them might have  known that a dangerous and bitter  quarrel was imminent.  Helena tripped lightly clown the  marble corridor and up tho broad  stairway, with tho prettiest of  smiles on hor lips, ns she remembered thoso thrilling, earnest blue eyes  that had followed hor so persistently wherever sho wont.  "I am to glvo him tho noxt waltz,"  sho said to herself, with the most  charming of girlish blushes, as siho  paused for a moment under a gas  Jot and consulted hor tablet,  Sho must koep hor heart from beating so loudly whon he clnspcd hor in  his arms and whirled her away ln  tho bewildering maze of tho waltz.  Sho must riot daro to raise h*>������  eyos to tho oarnost bluo ones bending ovor hor, lest ho should road In  her oonfusod glanco tho truth sho  had beon trying to closo hor own  heart to slnco thoy flrst mot���������ho wns  hor Ideal, her heart had gono out to  him at first sight,  Sho remomborod how hor faco had  flushed a burning rod as sho listened to a verso ho onco road from a  book of poems. Helena repoatud thu  verso softly to herself its sho glided  swiftly along toward Squiro Cameron's room���������repeated tho boautlful  lovo poom with flushed chocks and  boating heart:  "Tho   throbs   of lovo, tho witching  trnneo,  Tho touch of hands, tho dreams of  bliss,  Tho    whispered    vows, tho  glanco,  Tho trnmbllng   clasp, tho  kiss."

Thoro was a slow, stoalthy step bo-  hlnd her. Tho noxt moment a hand  grasped hor arm ln a viso-llko grip,  and a cry that was torrtblo to hear  rang through the room���������tho wildest  cry that over foil upon human ears,  The next instant a flood of gaslight illumined tho horrible scene  that was never to bo forgotten.  A shrill cry of "Help!" rang  through Uio corridor, but it was lost  in tho crash of deafening music and  tho voices of gay revelers below.  Acalo. *jx4 (ur Ui<i Ictfl ll&is. thfrt  piercing cry ior neip rang irom tne  girl's lips, but the cry was instantaneously hushed, and a moment of  death-like silense ensued.  "Is it you?" cried a voice that  froze the blood in the gir\'s veins,  "you who have been so false to me  ���������so faithless to your vows."  Tho fingers "of steel tightened their  hold, but the girl dared not raise  her eyes. The light seemed blotted  out in a death-like gloom.  Then, in a horrible despair words  are weak to describe, Helena raised  her dark, dazed eyes to the face bending over her. *  A half hour had passed. The waltz  was over, yet Helena had not returned  to  tho ball-room.  Had sho intended to slight him so?  Frederick asked himself, or was it  an oversight? Ho would wait patiently at tho door until she returned,  and, to his infinite annoyance, Herbert Renwick took up his position on  the other side of the arch for the  self-same purpose.  For a few moments they found  themselves alone. (i  "Helena does not wish to dance  with him���������she prefers me. That is  the reason she has not returned,"  thought Herbert llenwick, triumphantly, and his face relaxed into a  smile that made Frederick's blood  boil.  "Herbert," cried Frederick, flashing his rival a glance of withering  scorn, "I should like to tal'k with  you for a few moments���������out in the  garden would suit me best."  "And I shall be pleased to have  a few words with you," returned  Herbert Renwick, with much  warmth, *"*  They walked together In silence  through the fragrant blooms, stopping short at the end of the rose-  path, facing each other in the pale,  cold moonlight, eyeing each other  with bitter contempt and passionate anger.  Frederick was the first to break  tho  silence.  "I have heard of friends betraying friendship, of all kinds of treachery from those whom we believed  friends, yet I would never have believed this of you."  "What is that you claim I have  been guilty of?" asked Herbert, coolly.  "Of coming between me and Helena," cried Frederick. "You���������you  have driven me beyond all human patience to-night. If you see mo talking with her you thrust yourself be-  -tween~usr~������Y-our-con duct~is~o utr argcF-'  ous, Herbert Renwick. I warn you  I will stand it no longer."  "Pardon me, I think it is you who  thrusts yourself impertinently between Miss Cameron and me," replied^ Herbert Renwick, stormily.  "If the young lady prefers mo, why  should you, who havo no earthly  claim upon her, dare to take mo to  task for it?"  "I do not believe that sho prefers you," retorted Frederick, equally as stormily. "That remains to be  tested. You give her no opportunity to chooso between us; you attempt to monopolize her during the-  whole evening,"  "And why not, pray, if Miss Helena herself is satisfied? It is not tho  first timo that two men havo loved  the samo girl. You will admit  that?"  "I admit it," returned Fredorick.  palo to tho lips, "and now it is an  open question between us which will  win Holona Cameron."  "I bollovo that you will bo defeated,  Frederick."  "And I nm suro that you will bo  tho ono who shall tnsto defeat," declared Frederick, confidently.  A moment of wretched silence on-  sued,  "In olden tlmos gentlemen would  havo so'titlod such nn affair by a  duel," roturned Herbert Ronwick,  with  compiroBsod lips.  "Tt may como to thnt beforo this  Is ovor," said Fredorick, hotly, "I  ussuro you that I would not rofuso  to accept a challenge with tho clear  understanding that tho best man  would win her."  "It will bo a lively content botwoon us," Kcnwick answered. "I  lovo hor, and tho moment my oyes  restod on hor swoot, fnlr fnco I said  to    myself, 'I will win that youn������  girl for my wlfo though I slay ovory  rival that crosses my path.' "  "I mado that samo vow," declared Frederick, onergotlailly.  "Wo undurstand ouch other," ro-  pllod Horbort Renwick, curtly. "I  glvo you fair warning, Fredorick,  that I will do all In my power to  win her from you, I shall try to  engross her attention whenever I  can. If I can provent hor from talking, dancing, or ovon speaking with  you, rest assured I Hhnll do It."  "ITolona herself shall dectdo thot  matter, and I havo no fear for the  rosult," roturnod Frodorick Castle-  tr-T},  h?.nrh*tt1".  "Wa nro ������worn enomles th������������n nftor  to-night," said Horbort Renwick,  gloomily, "wo who havo bwon such  true, stanch friends; yet wo aro not  tho flrst who havo boon separated  by a lovoly woman. Ah, Frederick."  ho nddod, dosiwrulciy, il you wuuiu  but give hor up to mo."  "I would dlo flrst," said Frederick, solemnly, "llfo would not bo  worth living without her. How will  this ond, ItonwJck?"  "In despair, madness, nnd murder!" cried Herbert Renwick, fiercely and gloomily, under his breath.  "Honasforth we will be ac������nowletlm-  ed rivals, whose sole oim will be the  downfall of the other tn the fierce  battle of love," he added, aloud.  "Bo be tt," replied Frederick, calmly. "We shall 1* rivals until death  ���������en*rof*������ fti* a.vcrmoreA"  "If my rival were suc'cessrui no  would have need to call upon Heaven for mercy," soliloquized Herbert  Renwick, as he made his way slowly back to the house.  They had returned to the house by  separate paths and entered the ballroom by different doors, yet each of  them took up his old position on  each side of the arch through which  Helena must pass as she returned to  the room.  Each felt suro tliat he should be  tho conqueror in this battle of  hearts.  The moments roll by and yet Helena does not return. The torture of  her absence is driving the hearts of  the two determined rivals mad with  tho agony of suspense.  Both seek Vivian at once to remind her of Helena's absence.  Other partners whose names wero  down upon tho young girl's tablet  have crowded around Vivian.  The question upon every lip Is,  "Where is Miss Cameron?"  Vivian's eyes flash as she tapa the  nearest guest with her perfumed fan,  but sho keeps her anger down.  "How anxious all jrou geatlemen  are over the belle of the ball," she  says, with a low, jolly laugh. "I  suppose by going in quest of her I  will save many breaking hearts."  She gathered her rose-silk train,  over her arm and took a step forward.  The gentlemn fell back with low  bows, profuse in their thanks.  "I shall be standing under yonder  palm-tree; bring her to that entrance," Herbert Renwick managed  to whisper unseen.  "I will manage "it," nodded Vivian, smiling, but the smile ended in a  shriek, and horrified cries of "Lookf  in Heaven's name, look!"  Through the green arch came-  Helena with flying feet. Her white  dress was lorn and disheveled, and  the long brown curls that fell over  her breast, and the white arms she  held extended to t'hem were dripping  with���������blood! Her face was whit������  as death, and her eyes wero extended  wildly with the most intense  fright. And the next instant a  man's form dashed through the green  archway and into the very midst of  the gay revelers.  CHAPTER X.  When      Helena had     entered     the-  squire's apartment's, the light    from  "tTie~gas'"jet~was tTurnedTuaTdenly bu,  and she raised her eyes to the face  bending over her in wonder and terror, It was Squire Cameron's, but,  oh, so white, wild and haggard.  "Is it you, Helena?" he asked,  loosening his hold of tho white arm,  "I���������I thought it' was Vivian ��������� I  had sent for her."  He staggered back to the bed ���������  flinging himself wearily upon it,  murmuring an apology for his wild  words.  "Sit' down thero, child," he said,  motioning to a chair close by tho  couch, "sit where I can see you ��������� I  have something of great importance  to say to you."  For an instant Helena's heart seemed to jump up to her throat; had  ho discovered that she was not Olllo  Cameron, his long-lost daughter;  would he thrust her out into tho  street���������denouncing her bitterly beforo the assembled guests for what  sho had dono?  Tho wages of sin and deceit aro  sickening suspense and constant  blighting dread hst, the moment of  discovery is at hand.  Should sho full at his foot, and  with tho bitterest of tears confess  all? Whllo sho wns deliberating, his  first words assured her that hor tor-  rlblo fear had beon groundless.  "Helona, my dear daughtor, hand  ma that paper upon my desk,"  Sho handed It to him, nnd ho unfolded tho document with shaking  hands���������and Holona saw that it waa  a will.

A young  lady on one occasion, her first meeting with Whistler, was giving vent to  her appreciation of the "artistic temperament," and was evidently of the  opinion that she possessed that requisite herself. "It's wonderful," she said in  conclusion, "what a difference there is  between people." "Yes," replied  Whistler, "there is a great deal of difference between matches, too, if vou  only look close enough, but they 'all  make about the same blaze."

The late John Hay was the best evocation, of the American newspaper re*  porter known. He was a reporter who  vm great at the work, and from that  onward successful in everything. A  reporter, editor, ballad writer; secretary to Abraham Lincoln and then  hie biographer; an historian; a diplomat, an Ambassador, the ablest secretary of state the "United States ever  had, holding that office when he died.  Tbe story is current that Hay in his  better days thought little of his ballads and his early writings. "Whether  this is so or not we cannot say, but  probably Hay will be remembered  longer for "Jim Bludso" and "Little  Broaches" than anything else. We reprint these and some others from  "JPifce County Ballads." Probably John  Hay was the- inspiration of Mark  Twain, Bret Harte, certainly Whit-  combe Riley and perhaps also of Rud-  yard Kipling:  DIB THEIR DUTY  IN EVERY CASE  HOW DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS BANISH PAIN  IN THE BACK.

A special to The New York Herald  from New Orleans says:���������Dr. Arnold  Pfaff of the National Bureau of Education, who believes that lazlneBS  among school children is caused by a  germ, has found specimens of the germ  in school children of New Orleans and  is now looking for a cure for the disease.  Dr. Pfaff says that he has found  the germ in ten students In the Ferrell  School and will begin an Investigation  In tbe high schools.  The blood of schoolboyB which was  analyzed by Dr. Pfaff was drawn from  tbelr ears. He selected those who  soomod chronically disinclined to  study.  After an analysis he assured tbe  teachers that the boys were not responsible for their condition, but were  the victims of tbe disease. On this  hypothesis the boys wore allowed to  get off easily on tbeir dual examination. Dr. Plaff had all tho boys under  treatniont and assured thoir teachess  that they will be cured before the next  term begins.  Bridegrooms Ignored.

DRAFT HORSE ESSENTIALS.  Ready to Make Economical Gains la  the Feed Lot.  With the advent of the band separator tho question is often asked as  to the relative merits of skim milk  from the creamery and from the baud  separator. A test comparing the two  was made at the Kansas agricultural  station witb thirteen calves. At first  the calves showed a dislike to tho odor  Of the sterilized skim milk, but they  soon became accustomed to it and  drank it readily. There was practically no difference in the gain made by  the calves between the two classes of  milk. The creamery, however, took  pains to thoroughly sterilize the milk  and was careful not to receive Bour  milk that would give It a tendency  to clabber. Tbe bond separator skim  milk was fed immediately after separation. The calves receiving skim  milk were less subject to scours.  Results with skim milk show the possibilities in raising calves on It and  also the variations in, these results.  With young calves it requires a very  small amount of feed to produce a  pound of gain.  Three Form* of Feeding Milk,  Results of three different ways of  feeding milk, as to cost, are tabulated  as follows:  Cost Cost per  por 100 pounds  head.    gain.  Bkim milk lot  $5.27     $2.25  Whole milk lot  19.13       7.05  Lotwithdams 12.00      4.41  This experiment shows that the feed  cost of raising a good skim milk calf  need not exceed $5.27, in contrast to  $19.13 for whole milk, and $12 for one  raised by the dam. A skim milk calf  becomes accustomed to eating grain  and roughness early in life, becomes  gentle, and when transferred to the  feed lot is ready to make economical  gains.  In the Feed Lots.  At the close of the foregoing experiment the calves running with the dams  were placed in the feed lot3 in comparison with those raised on skim milk  and whole milk. The results In the  feed lots are shown in the following:  Number        ,<    Average   Daily  of     Months gain per gain per  calves,    fed.     head.      head.  -Skim-milkwW������������������-7���������,���������,410 *-2.10_   Whole milk. 10 7 405 1.93  Running with  dams ......22 7 422 100  It will be seen that the skim milk  calves made the best gains. The feed  record shows that the skim milk calves  produced 100 pounds of gain for 439  pounds of grain, while the whole milk  calves required 470 pounds of grain  per 100 pounds of gain, and the calves  running with the dams required 475  pounds of grain per 100 pounds of  gain.   The Margin of Resistance.  A careful reading of tho bulletins on  kerosone-llmoid mixtures issued by the  Delaware experiment station does not  greatly encourage tbe Idea tbat scale  can be destroyed by a single application even of the 5W per cent dilution,  but rather tbat repeated sprayings of  mixtures containing a lower percentage of oil may be needed during the  summer months. Mixtures containing  not over 10 per cent of kerosene may  be sprayed when the foliage has hardened ln midsummer without much In-  Jury and Is very effective In killing tha  larvae and young scales, but cannot bs  relied on to clear off the adults. Whether trees will endure repeated applications ln one season of oily or caustic  Insecticides ls not fully demonstrated.  Tb* margin of resistance to insecticides between tbo pernicious scale and  troo tissues li narrow, and the lattor's  power of growth In somo localities does  not seem equal to tho damage caused  by frequent spraying.--Rural Kew  Yorker.

In  conformation the leading characteristics sought are the possession of weight  with quality and action. While the adherents of the breed recognize the  value of weight, yet they always associate with lt quality of structure with  superlpr mechanical action, and In  j^ging a class of horses of this breed  RECESSIONAL.  TYPICAL CLYDRSDALB  MARX.  these features should have equal prom*  lnence. The.head ln the typical Clydesdale, though sometimes out of proportion to the other parts, is usually possessed ofointelligent features.  To secure the action desired the  shoulders must be sloping so as to  permit a free and long stride in the  walk and trot. The arm must necessarily be full muscled, legs fluted and  flat, with a fine feather springing from  the edge. Tha pasterns, which have  received much attention in the formation of this breed, Bhould be decidedly  sloping, the hoof head or top of the  foot should be large, and no amount of  fine feather or excellence of pastern  should be allowed to overbalance the  necessity of a good sized foot, correctly  shaped and of splendid wearing texture. The back should be short and,  though seemingly low from the extra  style secured by high carriage of head,  should never be weak, which is prevented by shortness In this part, and  with an easy rising and full coupled  loin running smoothly into a strong  croup. The quarters should be well  muscled, and the hind legs, in addition  to having every evidence of quality,  "shOUld~b������~propeTly-setrmeaning-there-  by that they stand close and the parts  have correct proportion in relation to  each other,   o  In no case should style be allowed to  supplant essential draft qualities, eta  It would be a fault of Judgment to  permit high carriage and flashy action  to attain prominence over a deep middle, strong coupling in association with  properly set limbs, as the source of  Clydesdale popularity Is the degree to  which they combine the many essentials of a draft horse with activity.

E. Rows Reports His Experience U  The American Agriculturist.  The use of dust poisons to destroy  insects and fungi in our orchards is  as yet in an experimental stage, writes  G. E. Rowe, Michigan, ln the American  Agriculturist, but those who have carried on the experiments in the largest  and most thorough way, speak very  highly in praise of the method. Like alt  other methods of doing things, there are  always some who do not do lt right and  then condemn the method because they  do not suooeed.  I have only used it one year, but obtained splendid results and I shall use  It again this year. I use lime as a car*  rler and a whirlwind duster machine,  weighing about 75 pounds, to scatter  the dust In this lime X put copper  sulphate and arsenlte, so oa to have  in ono mixture a complete insecticide  and fungicide, tho same as I would in  the water solution or bordeaux.

In the village of Greenwich, England,  In a quaint old street where the building are so thick that they tangle themselves together In a knot, there ls a  queer little shop with a sign over the  door which reads, "An Herb for Every  Pain."  On the shelves of this shop are to be  found hundreds of different kinds of  herbs for the cure of all bodily ailments. There can be found, all the old-  time herbs that our grandmothers used  to have hanging around the walls of  the kitchen, and stored away in the  attic, ready to be made into teas and  syrups ln case of sickness.  People who still have old-fashioned  ideas about health and sickness go  there for bugleweed, sumach, winter-  green, sassafras, camomile, horehound,  yellow dock, catnip, cherry bark, mul-  -lemr*extraet-of~oatsr-lobeliar-and-so~oh-  All these herbs have the reputation of  being good for some one or more ailments. Catnip for nervousness, sassafras for th blood, horehound and bone-  set for colds, sumach for sore throat,  wlntergreen for rheumatism, lobelia as  an emetic in case of poisoning, mullein  for consumption, etc.  Nearly all of these herbs are made  into teas. Sassafras tea, boneset tea,  and catnip tea are brewed, and served  either cold or hot. Among the many  hundreds of herbs that are sold ln this  little shop are some that are deadly  poisons, and they are labeled and sold  under the same restrictions as other  poisons.  The good old remedies that our  grandfathers hunted and dug in the  woods, those that our grandmothers  planted and tended ln the garden, have  given way to harmful remedies, to  drugs that leave the patient in a worse  condition than when ha began their  use, Wo believe lt has been a mistake  to give up the old remedies.���������London  Medical Talk.  Cleanliness and  Variety of  Food  Are  Essentials.  The old saying that "an ounce of prevention is'worth a pound of cure" is  certainly true In this disease of young  chickens, writes a correspondent of American Poultry Journal. As I have had  the chicken fever for over a quarter of  a century, my experience might be of  some value to a beginner. When I first  tried my hand at raising chickens I  would always lose quite a number with  the gapes.  When the gapes would put in an appearance I was always ready to try  every new remedy I chanced to hear  of. One of the flrst cures I remember  of hearing was to take a handful of  air-slaked lime, put the same Into a  tight box, give the box a shake, then  insert the chick as quick as possible  for a moment and remove. As I had  a brood of white face Black Spanish  at the time affected witih the dread disease, I thought I would try It on one.  I did so and succeeded In curing the  gapes, but upon examination I found  the chicken had lost" the sight of one  eye in the operation. Next I was told  blowing tobacco smoke down the windpipe would kill the worm. I tried that  treatment on a young game. The smoke  killed the worm all right, and the chick  went the same route a moment later.  Then I heard that by not depositing  the droppings where the young chicks  could get to scratch in them lt would  have the desired effect of preventing  the gapes. I tried that and found I  was not troubled so bad as formerly.  Next I was told that by feeding cornmeal it would cause the gapes. As we  used to use it quite extensively, I quit  it and found we had better luck In not  losing so many chicks. Then I was  told, if the mother hen was troubled  with lice that would cause the chicks  to have the gapes. I gave that matter  some attention, with satisfactory results. Then I heard that dampness  was a breeder of gapes, so I gave that  some consideration and received further benefits by keeping the chicks dry.  I don't think I have lost a dozen  chicks from the gapes in the last five  years, and by observing the following  I   am   no   longer   troubled   with   the  Descendant of the King.  Tho death of Capt. James Thompson  Ord, United States army, retired, at  San Ts lego ,Cal., calls to mind the  fact that ln his veins flowed the Royal  blood of England. His lineage goes  back to King George IV. He was a  descendant of the oldest son of that  King by Mrs. Fltzherbort, the King's  first wife.  Tho Princo fell in love with Mrs.  Fitzhorbert, who had been twice a  widow at 25. She was a Roman Catholic and a marriage by the nolr of the  Crown with a Roman Catholic forfeited his succession by tho "Act cf Settlement" Nor by the "Royal Marriage  Act" could he legally contract marriage  even with a ProteBtant without his  father's consent, unless at the end of  a yoar after formal notice had been  given and then only if Parliament had  not expressed its disapprobation.  Believing truly that ho could contract no legal marriage with Mrs. Fits-  herbort, he was quite ready to go  through tho form of marriage, Mrs.  Fltzhorbort, holding that the performance of tho ceremony by a priest of  her church was a sacramental efficacy,  was lndlfforont to t'.������ legality of the  proceeding nnd the marriage took  place. In 1787 the Prlnoo denlod the  marrlago In tho House of Lords through  Fox, his mouthpleco, and in 1795 ho  marrlod Caroline of Brunswick,   from  gapes: :  First���������Keep the henhouse and fowls  free from lice and the runs in a sanitary condition, having no manure heaps  of chicken droppings for the chicks to  scratch ln.

Third.���������When the chicks hatch put  them and the hen in a nice dry place,  whero the hen can dust herself and the  chicks bo kept dry in damp weather.  Fourth.���������Feed chop feed for soft feed  in place of cornmeal and. only feed  what they will eat up readily with a  relish, as I think if feed is allowed to  remain where the chicks run over it  it not only becomes sour and not flt for  them to eat, but they also become  tired of it quicker and on the whole,  will not eat as much.  I also think the greater variety of  foodypu give them the better they will  dOr'C-';,'.c     ��������� ,  Tho Pole Stnr.

Dr. Pyne seems to  foreshadow the appointment of a Director of Education for the Province,  in a paragraph which say3:  "Educatton Is, however, so special  a subject that no Minister would claim  to be an exptVt therein, and therefor������  a comprehensive educational scheme  for any State needs to be shaped as  regards its general technique and details by a well-directed and far-sighted  policy of development. This must proceed from some Individual having a  commanding knowledge of modem education, and of modern educational method. In the nature of things a Minister cannot devote suflicient time to  become an educational expert of tha  highest order himself, nor ls that his  appropriate function, either here or  elsewhere, so that although the Minister  must ever control the great question of  departmental policy which represent  the decisions of the State as regards  the whole Issue, the realization of the  educational system requires that the  chief administrator shall be really director of education,"  School children will say amen to tho  following, which eliminates homo-work  by evolution:  "It would seem, however, as the present movement toward a unification of  the interests of the home and school  go forward that the school, directly,  will furnish less rather than more home  work for the children. If the school  properly performs its function of giving the pupil a day filled with educative work, lt is difficult to see why it  ought still to pursue him into the period that he should have for recreation,  or into the hours when he would better  he asleep."  In regard to the dearth of teachers  the report says:���������"It is clear the teaching profession does not furnish inducements sufficiently tempting to warrant  young persons in incurring the expense  necessary to become qualified. The  salaries paid, though slightly ln advance of some previous years are exceedingly low when compared with  what is paid to persons in other call*  ings of life."  It appears that this year the num!|f  holding first-class certificates In oi*  public and separate schools is only 613.  The number holding second-class certificates 3,976. There are 2,682 holding  third-class certificates; 624 holding extensions or renewals of third-class certificates; 55 are teaching on old country  "BoWd*~Wftlflc~ateTfr^ThCT^^���������  who hold only district certificates, and  336 holding only temporary certificates.  Four hundred and twenty-two appear  not to hold any legal certificates ot  qualifications. These, however, are  mostly teaching In separate schools, and  will doubtless soon qualify, ln view of  the recent decisions of the court. The  certificates of 170 are not reported.  From these figures It is clear a great  many children in our public and separate schools are not taught by teachers with good qualifications. What,  then, should be done? Should a school  which employs a teacher holding only  a district certificate receive any share  of the Legislative grant? Has not the  time come when a mode of distributing the $240,000 annually paid should  be placed upon a different basis? This  is a question for the Legislature to  deal with.  Statistics give the number of pupils  enrolled In the public schools aa 403,-  161, a decrease of 4,963, The number  of enrolled pupils in Roman Cathollo  separate schools ts 47,117, an increans  of 1,153 over the year before. There are  5,734 public schools, or 63 more than  in the yoar previous, and there ax* 413  Catholic separate schools, an increase  of 21.  An investigation of cost per   pupil  shows that more Is  spent on  publlo  school children.
