The tide of officii seekers,  lobbyists 'and politicians had been  turnedl from the executive wing of the  statehouse, and the exodus of clerks  and stenographers bad begun. Iu tbe  anteroom his private secretary awaited his dismissal for the day, iinpa-  Hont of tho unusual delay. Dowu the  tiled corridor echoed the footfalls of  tho janitor, master of all he surveyed.  All day the governor had longed for  the moment, yet now he sat idle. His  gase wandered toward tho window,  and he found himself thinking that  when thc slant rays of the setting sun  flashed into the room he would find  light to continue his work. It was for  a pitifully few moments only tbat the  sunshine penetrated tho governor's  private ofllco, with its subdued colorings, its massive furniture and its patriotic memories.  His hand rested on the paper he had  no need to read���������"Senate bill No. 214."  ���������Jt had passed both senate and house  without serious discussion, and the  vote had drawn party lines sharply.  The governor's own party was responsible for the measure, aud it-had met  with only half hearted opposition. "Apparently no ono considered the bill of  any special importance.  The governor had not quite understood why he took the precaution, but  some instinct advised him to probe beneath the surface of this innocent looking measure. This instinct, this indefinable "suspicion, was" confirmed in a  way that appalled him.  The days of indecision which followed had not been -pleasant.ones for  the state's chief executive. Secure in  their position, the sponsors of the bill  had not urged its Immediate signing,  and the governor had carefully weighed the question."  Now be realized that the hour for  action had come. Either he must veto  tlie measure iin_e interest of~those  whose votes had given him the highest  oflice in the state find whoso welfare  ho had sworn to protect or ��������� throw his  influence and bis signature with those  who were conspiring to mulct their, ingenuous Constituency.  There could bo no-compromise. ' 131-  tlicr with the hinssos he must stand or  with their enemies. And .their'enemies  were his lifelong friends, the men who  hnd made him politically, the mon.  whom ho had known in boyhood, in  ambitious young manhood, in ripe and  successful middle age���������the men with  whom ho had marched and sung and  fought and bled during the mighty civil war. lt,8ce'med to him lu this dark  hour tlmt* be loved those men, every  one of them. He knew their wives,  liielr sons, their daughters. Ho had  broken bread at 1 heir tallies, lie had  rejoiced with them In their successes,  sympathized wiih thein when clouds  had gathered. Political ties had been  welded into friendship's fetters of  Hlool. IIo brought his list down on the  mocking paper wllli a terrific crash.  Tho men behind (hut bill were bone of  hl������ bone, flesh of. his llesh, nud yet -  Then came anothor thought, a  Drought purely selfish, if bo turned  ngalnst those men who had mnde lilm  what ho wan whut did tho futuro, of-  ferV An honest politician, he had no  itnnnclfil rotuniH froui u score of years  given to IiIh slate's service. Part or his  snlary onch year had gone to piiy in-  forest on llie mortgage wlilch had hung  heavily on tho old farm. His law pmc  lIco hnd been scattered among many  younger rivals, And he had pasmid  thnt ago wheu men can .compute sue-  eosMfnlly wllh now blood.  There wns hiH wlfo too, 8he had  grown accustomed to Dio proportion of  piirplo nni flno IImm aoernlMtf to the  governor's wife-nnd Mnrlon. He w-  mem-barm] thnt very morning watching  Uio jrirl, applo of IiIh eye, mount hor  horso nnd cantor down tho drivowny.  Was It fair tlmt lie should dash the etip  of [ilousnro sho was';lust mining to hor  lips? Ho could almost fool tho fresh,  cool hint* of his check un she whispered:  "T'other, dear, 1 am mo huppy, so  hnppy 1"  Would who lw happy If he took hor  hack to tho old. farm, wllh Its struggling buildings, us iiegiuctcu iumi, io  Iscglii nil u\ir uhtJtti'.J  Ho hont forward, oue hand support-  luj; hiH itching head. Then suddenly  onmo the junboam, striking full nnd  fair through tho casement, lt fell upon his givat Heal ring, bcaiiiw xho  stnto's cont. of arms, and he pulled bis  hand buck Into tho shadows.  Tlio Ktm'n rny traveled across iho  room, tilting upward, and In it whimsical mood ho followed Its courso over  the great fiat lopped dc-l. wiih if" fixtures, post tho high backed carved  chub's sliulKht lo (la- mantel, and there  It slruck something thnt brought him  to his feet.  Tt wns nn oil painting of himself, llfo  sJ������c and inn do from an old daguerreo  type. He remembered the very day  that faded little picture had been tab-  en. He bad worn his uniform, then  bright and new. The painting was the  gift of tbe men of his company, some  of whom were numbered among the  ranks of those supporting the bill  which lay on yonder desk. Why had  they followed bim in thoso dark days  of secession and civllstrife? Why had  they followed .where he'led? Why. if  he was not stronger than they, if the  gift of leadership was not mighty within him? They bad trusted him then,  they bad followed him then,, arid now  whorA wna ho leading them? No: he  was not leading, be was following.  Following them where?. To dishonor,  io dishonesty!  But. would they see it that way?  Would tliey realize that the same belief in a great underlying principle  which had led him to don that uniform  in a lost cause dominated him?  ��������� Some one opened the door, but ho  did uot turn. Rather he stood as ono  fascinated, for the draft from the open  door had stirred the two flags across  above tho picture, the two flags which  lie now loved with a strangely commingled and yet divided affection.  Something stronger than sentiment  took possession of him. He bad found  the light.  He turned toward his desk and picked up his pen with a hand that did  not tremble. It was the work of a  moment only. ���������  Then he looked up to face���������Marion,  with Ji happy light in her eyes, the  lilt of a liieadpwlark in her voice.  "Father, dear, I am so glad to catch  you alono for just a little minute,  dearest," she coaxed as sho glanced at  the, stacks of papers. "_ou wouldn't  mind if I"*sat ou your knee, just as we  used to sit together. Dear me, how  long it was!"  The governor smiled indulgently and  held her cool, smooth cheek close to  his feverish one.  "I'ou are so busy all the time it really doesn't seem as if I had a father  now, but I have something so important to tell you. You remember Jerry  Gaylord, father, dear? I used to go to  school with Jerry. You often took us  to the crossroads in your buggy. Well.  Jerry has been here���������yes, several  times���������and we���������I���������I���������think I'll go ba,ck  ���������With him next time if you don't mind.  Mother says it is simply absurd.   Jerry  ��������� isn't very reniarkablo.   Ho isn't even  stantly seen and expressed in strong relief. The greatest differences seem to  lie in the relative development of their  sense.of fear. In one wren family the  male never fed the young, and the female never became very tame. What a  different state of affairs was found at  another wren's nest studied earlier in  the summer! After tbe removal of this  nest it was fully forty-five minutes before the young got a morsel to eat, but  after the firsf visit the victory was  won, and the hen, if not tlie cock, bird  became very tame; During the preliminary interval of suspense the male  sang cheerfully, but the female was at  the nost and stump many times before  venturing inside. Five minutes after  her timidity had been finally overcome  'the male was also on the stump, where  he Silt with drooping wings and gavo  his alarm; thence he. flew to a tree,  tlien to the ridgepole of the tent, where  he sang merrily, while the young were  fed by his mate. Tho male sang all  the morning until noon and, after a silence, began again at 2 o'clock. On the  contrary. at (he, first nest thc male  was never seen,..aiid'.seldom, if over,  heard. The timidity of tho female was  never con)c|nt"|v overcome.���������Century.  IN THE FASHION WORLD.

Fishing literature prior to the days  and writings of Izsaak Walton opens  up points of interest which are unique.  Kot the least interesting are the constant references of tbe early writers to  the medicinal virtues of flsh. Of course  many of the salt and fresh water fishes mentioned by the old writers are  not recognized iu the waters of today,  but the fresh water perch, carp, tench  and eel arc yet recognized, and it is in  connection with these flsh that some  of thc quaintest ideas as to their medicinal virtues have prevailed.  The Germans have a comparative  proverb which says, "More wholesohio  than a perch of the Rhine," and it is  certain that from the, earliest times  this familiar fish has been esteemed as  one of tho best gastronomic produce  tions of fresh water. It has also been  ascribed mediciual virtues. Gesner says  that physicians value the perch so  much that they recommend it to be  freely eaten by wounded men, women  in childbed and those suffering from  dangerous fevers. Aldrovandus praises  it and mentions that the two otooliths  ("round, bones") found in the head of  the perch are marvelously good for  stone in tho bladder.  That the carp was esteemed in olden  times in England is certain. Dame  Berners, writing in her quaint "Trea-  tysee of Eysshyuge Wyth au Angle,"  published in 1400', says, "Tho carpe be  a dcyntous fish, but there ben few in  Englonge." Being "deyntous"���������i.. e.,  "dainty"���������it must bavo beon a good fish  at that time to eat. It has'certainly  lost its character since then.  In the art of healing the carp plays a  respectable part. One old writer speaks  of the fat of Die carp as being of miraculous power for the alleviation of  "hot rheumatism." The manner of its  application was by frequent rubbing  on tlie painful part, and the effect was  said to be eminently mollifying and  salutary. The triangular bones in the '  -throat-of~tho~can)~on_being,gro.und_to,  powder and applied to a wound or  bleeding nose were said to act as styptic. The gall was also said to have  been used for sore eyes, and "above  Die eyes," says an old /Esculapius,  "two littlo bones exist, semicircular in  shape, which aro diligently preserved  by noblo females against the luiiatical  disease." ���������  In thc "Haven of Health" carp are  also comprised in "the ten sortes of  fische which are reckoned as principal  in Die preservation of health," and,  adds the quaint old writer, "this fish  is of great wholesomeness and great  value, and its tongue is very pleasant  to carping ladies."  A klud of first cousin of the carp is  what is known as the barbel. Such  ancients as Juvenal, Albcrtus and others qf tliat ilk evidence that it".was  known and esteemed by the Hotu'nn  gourmet. Plutarch mentions a curious  fact in its natural history. Dr. Bad-  ham in his "i'roso Hnleutlcs" translates this passage as follows: "Tho roo  of tho barbel is very poisonous. Antonio GukIus took two boluses, nnd thus  describes his sensations; 'At Hist 1 felt  no inconvenience, but some hours having elapsed 1 began to bo dlsagreoably  affected, and ns my stomach swelled  and could not be brought down by  iinlao and carminatives I was soon in n  state of great depression and distress.'"  It appears Dint his countenance was  pallid, llko a nuin in n swoon. Deadly  coldnesH ensued, and violent cholera  and vomiting canic on. Tho barbel  (Bnrhus vulgaris) of todiiy has survived  such poisonous qualities. Its flesh has  tho tnsto of (flowed white blotting paper, nnd Hs roo Is as Innocuous a*  bread pills.

TUESDAY,  FEBY.  9.  1904.  A LITTLE TOO SOON.  Why the Old Man  Objected to tKe  Utilising.  As tho Btage drove into Dawson In  the anterallroad days we noticed tho  body of a man hanging from tho limb  of a tree near the hotel, but no ono expressed surprise or asked questions. It  Was an hour after our arrival when a  little old man came along on foot and  began making a fuss about the hanging. He said so much and said it in  . Buch loud tones that the man who had  bossed the Job finally turned on him  With:  "Soe yere, old man, what's all.this  tow about anyway?'  "About that hanging!" shouted tfo  Old man.  \   "Waal, didn't tho knss steal a hossl"  I   "He did, and It was my boss too."  j   "And  yon  wanted  bim  hung,  of  ��������� tourser  i   "Of courso I did."  j   "And isn't ho up tbar ln tiptop shape  land accordln to Hoyle?"  j   "Ho are, but you was too blamed sud'  Iflen about lt  You didn't give bim tlmo  enough."  "Didn't wo give him ten minits to  prepare his soul?"  "I reckon you did, but ho took them  hull ten minits askin tho Lord to forgive bis sins and was swung off before  ho could tell whar he had hid the hoss  away."  M. Quad.  Aiming; Hi__.  "t dunno whether I should prefer to  marry a markis or a millionaire wben  X grows up, but mother says I'll 'ave  to be portickler careful and not chuck  myself away."  A Theatrical Influence.  "What is your objection to theso  puro, wholesome down on tho farm  dramas ?"'  "Thoy exerciso a demoralizing In-  t fluonco on me," Bald tho man with tha  heavy mustache and expouslvo clothes.  "But thoy aro commended as a moral  Influonco."  "Thoy don't work that way with mo.

"That puts mc out," remarked the  Sean Yankee from the Cross Triangle  outfit The third man, Davies, as he  called himself, rapped the table with  Ids knuckles Indifferently. He -was  ahead of the game and could afford to  lose thc pot  There remained old man Lorry. To  him Gentry looked with surprising in-  eouciance. Having1 dealt the cards, tho  gambler was disturbed by no doubts as  to Lorry's action. Ho would raise and  promptly. Lorry had cut before the  deal, it is true, but Gentry had reversed  the cut adroitly, unobtrusively.  Nevertheless, to tho gambler's surprise, Lorry was uncommonly slow.  He vacillated mentally between caution and cupidity; his weak, red'rim-  a&ed eyes shone feverishly behind the  iron bound glasses, and he chewed  nervously upon one end of his ragged,  toba������co stained mustache. Finally he  elammed his hand upon the table.  Gentry arched his brows inquiringly.  "Out?" he asked, motioning toward  the discard.  Old man Lorry swore abandoned?'.  "Naw!" he replied. "See yer twenty  an' go yer a hundred better."  FFom the interior of his shirt he pro-  fitieed a roll of bills which the gambler  appraised with amazement. Ho had  not thought to find such rich prey.  Lorry, conscious that he was creating  n sensation, threw two bills upon the  table with an air.  "Stcddy, pop," cautioned Healy, proprietor of the saloon.  "Mind yer own business," responded  old man Lorry sharply.  "And five hundred better,"' Gentry  remarked softly. o  "An' five hundred."  ["Again."  Lorry glanced defiantly about the table. Healy had turned his back. As  for the rest startled out of their com-  "li6-nr^by~1jiis_abrupt~change~in-the-  complexion of the game, they watched  breathlessly.  "Call yer!" exclaimed the old man,  depositing the remainder of his fortune in the pot  "Aces up an' queens'." he added, with  an oath, as,,Gentry displayed his cords.  "Better 'n my kings up an' jacks"��������� He  forofca off, staring blankly at the gambler as he calmly raked in his spoils  ���������and passed the cards to Dugan.   The  latter shook his head, with an, air of  finality.  "Nope," ho said.   "No more for me."  "None in mine," agreed the lean Yankee briefly, and Davies nodded assent  to the judgment of the others.  * Lorry shambled dispiritedly toward  the bar.   "Glmino some 'ski, Billy," he  demanded,  Gontry arose and placed a fifty Jn the  bartender's hands. "i'o������ can pay for  tbe drinks out of that. I'm going to  tako a little walk to cool off. See you  later, gentlemen." He paused on tlie  threshold, but. none answered him. and  he passed on out into tlie Infinite silent  peace of the mountain night  He walked a few steps along the  apology for a road which formed llie  main street of tho half deserted milling  .village, then halted suddenly.  "Old fool," lie muttered impatiently,  comforting himself against tho thought  of tho wrong ho had dono old mnn  Lorry. "Ho should have known better. Woll, what's Ills loss Js my gain.  If I hadn't got It somo other follow  would."  Gentry lighted n eigur, Rtueli IiIh  hands In Ills trouxem pocket* jauntily  und retraced his ntei>* toward tlouly'H.  But he did not stop there. Through iUi  open window* frngntoiitx of an argument floated to bin earn, punctuated  with old miui Lorry'* voice, bloating  that ho had been whom, Tlint wax  tiaHo true, but the gambler did not  winh to dUcuKU tho qucNtton with lilm  ulneo of newmslty it would mean ovon-  taal bloodtihod.

He  tossed away his smoke, removed his  slouch hat and approached.  "Good evening," he said courteously.  "Howdy, stranger. Be you from  Hammels. down yonder?"  Gentry failed to repress a start. The  uncouthness of the words, the strong  tnt'fh of dialect was so distinctly out  of keeping with wliat tbe beauty ot  the girl's voice bad led him to expect,  And, now that ho could see her, there  was positive refinement of feature lu  the face, wholly charming, upturned to  him.  "Yes," he answered her.  The girl regarded him with unconcealed curiosity. "An' what might be  yer name, stranger?"  "Mason," he lied without wondering  why ho should lie, lacking a reason.  "Oh," she sighed, with evident relief.   "I didn't know���������from yer style,  yer know���������but what yer might be Gentry."  "Who's Gentry?"  "Aw���������a gambler what I hoord had  come to town. Pappy went down  early tonight to get in the game with  him. Say, Mr. Mason; did yer see my  pappy down there?"  "I don't know, really. Who"���������  "Lorry," she interrupted. "Ole man  Lorry they calls him, mostly. Did yer  see bim around?"  "Come to think of it. I did." He  smiled blandly upon her to conceal a  rising uneasiness.  "Was   ho   drunk?"   she   continued  frankly.  "N-no.   I didn't notice that he was."  "He   waim't   gamblin'    witli   that  hound Gentry, was he?" :  "No," said the hound heartily. "Gentry left town today, I'hear."  "That's good!"    She smiled at the  gambler,  shading her beautiful  eyes  with a deep fringe of uncurled lashes.  "He'll only come home drunk, then,"  she added pensively.    "I don't mind  that.   Never had to manage a man, did  yer, stranger?"  "Only myself." he laughed.  "Then yer don't know nothin' about  it���������the trouble; I mean.    Puppy's an  olb fool.   He don't know no more about  ���������play-in���������pqker-in-a���������tenderfoot-auL-he.  thinks he knows it all.   He-he"-' She  hesitated.  "Well?" he encouraged her.  "Aw���������nothin', only he made a strike  a little while ago.   It warn't much of a  strike, only a couple of thousand, an'  he promised to send me back east���������to  the home folks, you know���������next week."  "And?" said Gontry softly.  "That was the money he took to gamble with,"'She laughed, a trifle harshly.  "Said he'd send mo back in stylo���������with  his winnln's.    Well, so long's Gentry  ain't there 1 reckon I may get a chance  to get some book Iearnin', after all, if  I can keep hlra homo till next week.  Goin' already, stranger?"  "Yes; I must hit the trail'early'tomorrow, Miss Lorry,"  "Waal, so long.   If yer seo the ole  man start him along home, will yer?  Thanks, an' good night to yer, Mr. Mason."  ���������       ������������������������������������������������������  Some distance down the trail the  gambler stumbled over the prostrate  form of a man. With something of a  strong presentiment Gentry turned tiie  body over arid lit a match to see the  face.  It was old man Lorry, hopelessly intoxicated, sleeping the dead sleep of nl-  eobol,  "There's most of my fifty." remarked  llife gambler grimly. "It's like throwing good money aftor had. I'm a  darned fool."  To prove his assertion he took from  his wnllut the bills of which he had  robbed tlio miner and Bluffed thom In  the latter's pocket������. Then ho helped  hhn to Ills feet, meaning to nee hlm  homo.

He's  been up, quite late enough."  Hevfnjpert.  He was asking the old man for his  daughter in marriage. Ho was talking  tremblingly, hesitatingly, as you read  in story books. Now came the old  man's turn to speak, and as he began  his lace was white with passion and  his voice shook with excitement.  "You want to marry my daughter?"  he said. "Ah! Twenty years ago your  fathor crippled me in a business dea������  and I swore to be revenged, and now  my time has come."  He paused for breath, and the aspirant for the maiden's band was about to  beat a hasty retreat in the face of  supposed defeat when the fa thet  broke forth again:  "Yes. sir; I swore to tie revengeo  and I'll uow strike the father through  the son. Want my daughter, eh?  Well, take her, and may she prove as  expensive to you as sbe has to me."  The old man dyopped into his chair,  worn out with the excitement of his  'rfot and the yoona man fainted.  T  _nr W. HEIMBUBO.  Aii Intelligent Cblmimusee.  In lSS-i Mr.  Smyth. United States  consul at Liberia, brought to this country a young chimpanzee about seventeen months old and sold him to the  New  York park department for the  cost of transporting bim.  As he came  first class passage, tho price was $125.  He was named Crowley. \ Ho took to  Keeper Cool- from the first, and until  his death they were the best of friends.  He was very intelligent and I believe  was as'near, human as an animal could  be. He would sit at a table to eat, putting on a napkin and vising a, knife,  fork and spoon wheu necessary. When  ho had finished he would use the napkin, carefully fold it up and lay it beside  his plate.  About two weeks before lie  died a severe attack of pneumonia set  in, aud Dr. Marsh, surgeon of-the.park  police,   was   called.    Every   morning'  when the doctor, entered tlio room ho  would say; "Good morning, Crowley," j  and Crowley would get up to shake '  hands.   Then the doctor. would say, j  "How, are you  this   morning?"   and  Crowley would grin. The doctor would j  examine him and  say,  "Your ������ pulse, '  Crowley," and Crowley would extend  his   hand.    "Now   your   lungs."   audi  "Probably you will stand your futuro wife in the corner, or mako her  kneel on pease. I will warn all the  girl?," said Frau Elisa, with a pout.  Ho did not hear what she said; he  was thinking of Lucie, of the man  who Imd stretched out his hand for  her, in order to have a mother for  his children, only because she happened to be tho sister ot his dead  wife. Why had he not been able to  forgive ber, even if he could not forget her? "     : ���������   '  Ifc was ail right as it was ��������� yes,  nf course. He took up his glass and  drank. By that time tho others  were all Uuig_inkr and talking again.  At the opposite ond of the, table sat  Fraulen Selma, and .not far* from  her his mother. She locked over at  him angrily. Fraulein Selma was  blushing violently behind her gigantic bouquet, her little partner was  talking eagerly to her.  Adler felt a light touch on his  shoulder, and a waiter whispered a  few words to him. , He slowly laid  his napkin on the table,  "I must ask you' to excuse mo," he  said.  ���������'Sent for again? Do not take it  amiss, but-1 must say yours is ah  unenviable 'profession," cried one of  the gentlemen.' "Come back soon,  doctor?" *',.'  Ho was    already    oat of Iho,door  and down    the    stairs.   Old     Peter  stood  there,  a lantern in his hand,  and -his eyes half shut with sleep.  "Mademoiselle  begs you   will     cx-  1 case her disturbing .you," he   began,  as Adler, let him halp him on    with  his coat.    He put oh his hat     and  I signed  to him  to follow.     An    icy-  ! cold wind  was blowing, 'tho numer-  j ons .little puddles in thc badly pav-  ; ed  streets     were    frozen  over,     tha  rlouds- had dispersed, and  the stars  wore now shining brightly.  Mademoiselle' camo to meel,; Adler  at the door, looking very .much disturbed.  "My dear doctor," she cried, "we  are in such trouble. Forgive me for  disturbing you, and to-night too."  .He- looked at her questioningly, his  face very pale.  "What do you suppose has happened?!' she said, in an agitated voice.  "At midnight, we heard���������-or rather  Miiina  did-���������a  child  crying  bitterly,  ino; tall  me you nave not quite fee-  gotten me."  Sho did not answer, but looked at  him-in a bewildered mannor.  "For all tho pain you have paused  me, not oac kind word, Lucie?"  "Why do ybu torture'ino?" sho  cried, as if just returning to her senses. "I know how wrong I have  been. I entreat your pardon for all;  and if it is any comfort to you,  know that I am the most wiviciie'!  and unhappy creature in tho-world.  And how go and tell it to your fiancee, and���������may you be happy!"  y.he felt her .hands firmly -grasped. ,  'Look at me, Lucie," he said, iu  a'firm voice. "What has put it in  your head to speak to me of a 'o-  anceo? Do you think it is so easy.  then, to forget you���������after you, to.  love another? No, Lucie, 1 belong to  you at this moment as entirely as  when "you gavo me your first kiss,  do you remember, in tha wood under the beeches? Oh, Lucie, you  have much to mako up for;'will you  do it?"  Sho did not, speak a word; but  burst ing into tears put hor arms  about his nock and sobbed 'more violently than ever. It seemed as' ''"  slit?..we're weeping away all the, sor-,  row from her "kouI with ihopo.'.taar*."  mi Jet her do it in silence. \:-,   :  '������������������Tho fault was partly mine, too,"  i;>-. whispered,. at last raising her  rio'ad a.nd. kissing the tears on her'  lashes and her fair hair.

Crowley would throw back his arms to  allow the doctor to place his ear to his  breast "And now your' back, Crow-,  lpy." and ho would turn his back.  Ho grew very feeble before death,  and Cook stood by him from early  morning until lato'at night. Late in  the afternoon, of the day he died Cook  held him in his arms for about: an hour.

MARKET HE VIEW  (Compiled from The Commercial).  Trade "in-tho wheat' markets during  tho past, woek has shown itbclf tentative in character. There has been  a certain umount of activity at  times in tiie American speculative  markets, and then again absolute  duliucMS, us if things had come to  Uie point when an aggressive leader  might cany prices up or down. Such  leader has not shown himself pronouncedly, although the name of Armour & Co., hits begun to appear  quite prominently in the market pros-  sip, ami that house is credited with  having accumulated a large amount  of May wheat, and to some extent  they seem to have tho market, practically under control. Outside of  thia the leading feature of the week's  trading in the American markets is  the advance of the May delivery over  the December.. Tho'gonoral situation  is still ono of strength in tho American domestic market,' and easiness  and indiflerenee in the European  trade, consequent on plentiful-supplies from other countries to Kuropi*  and tho prospect of the supply being  continued from the crops now harvesting in-tbe southern ������ hemisphere.  The American markets had a moderately sharp upturn at. the -close of  Ixusiness yesterday, and the change in  prices in these markets on the week  !*-io\vh December delivery to bo nrao-  tically unchanged and May delivery  about unchanged to }c higher.

"Ollalla John" is outspoktmon  the subject of game protection, and  cal to  the   present   indiscriminate  slaughter   of   game   by   so called  " 6portamen"    " murder."        We  heartily endorse John's views and  sentiments on this important question, and hope that the McBride  G-vernwent will take a lesson fr m  John's utterances on the subject.  If the pre-ent government make  proper game lawB, they will be the  first to do so in B.C. history, for the  pieseiit lawB and the methods pursued to enforce the same, are useless  and farcical, the only clause of any  good being that of prohibiting the  the sale of willow grouse. This is  incomplete, for blue grouse Bhould  be also included.

The   Agent-General  in   London  has transmitted to the Provincial  Department  of   Agriculture   some  valuable informaiion regarding the  disinfection of glass-houses, by the  cyanide process.    Mr Turner guys:  ���������"Having noticed in the London  -papers   that   the   Royal- Botanic  Society had been carrying on ex  periments for the  destruction   of  scale and other pests on fruit and  other trees and also on shrubs and  flowers, I wrote the secretary for  information on the subject thinking  it might prove of value to horticulturists and fruit-growi-rs in British  Columbia.    Three cyaniding pans  were used in each house, making a  total of 9 in this range, which is  150 feet in length.    The pans were  first arranged into positions suitable  for an even distribution   of  gas.  Pieces of boards were then hung  over each pan, about 4 feet long  and 11 inches bro������d,   to   act as  "punkahs" for distributing the.gas  generated instead of allowing it to  rise rapidly to the roof, where, owing to its light nature it would collect in large quantities, possibly to  damage tender vegetation and leave  insufficient  at  the  lower parts of  house'to ..destroy the insects.    The  whole of these nine 'punkahs' were  connected together with cords and  worked from the exterior Oof house  for a limit 10 minutes..

This has been cunttruitd.  acid; vessels for the sodium cyanide  were arranged above and close beside the generator with fine cords  attached, . whereby the cyanide  soukl be tapped nto the dilute acid  from exterior of house without the  slightest danger totheoperator.The  ventilators had been previously arranged to open from the outside.  With all in readiness the sodium  cyanide was tipped into the dilute  sulphuric ycid from th:1 exterior of  each house, the " punkahs " set in  motion and gas was rapidly generated. Fifty minutes was allowed  from the close of above operation  for the. cyanide to complete its  work. At the end of this time the  ventilators were opened and gas allowed to escape. During the operation no person must enter the  house, as the gas generated is of a  highly poisonous nature; and no  cyanide must come in contact with  the dilute sulphuric acid' while  operator is within the house. The  operation of cyaniding is much  easiur in practice than theory and  if carried out in a careful manner  there is absolutely no risk. All  plants in the houses cyanided were  quite dry and sustained not the  slightest damage The time selected was 4 o'clock p.m., and houses  opened at 4,60.  Two generators and punkahs were  used, Time exposure 40 minuteH.  At the end of this period gas waf  allowed to escape and wub clear5  enough to enter the house 2 hours  after opening. I selected several  specimens for examination under  microscope of mealy bug, tod Bpidcr,  thrips, etc., and found them in a  perfectly lifelike altitude hut quite  dead.  On further examination the next  morning the result on mealy bug  was marvelous. Not a living specimen could lie found in a range of  150 feet long by IB feet wido and  uul u oii.blu i>hnt damped.
