SInsular Way In Which au Ensrliah  Murderer Wast Discovered.''  In the London Mirror of Literature  for June, 1844, there is an account of  a dream that was remarkable in many  respects. It is given upon the authority of a clergyman of the Church of  England, the Rev. Mr. Alexander, who  speaks from personal knowledge of  some of the facts. It appears that a  young man of good reputation, named  Horrocks, was found robbed and murdered. His head had been beaten in  apparently witb bludgeons. A vigilant  search was made for the assassin and  after several months abandoned; no  clew to the crime, having been discovered. One night a gentleman who had  been well acquainted with Horrocks  awoke and told his wife-that he had  had a dream in which he had been as-  ~sured-that_one-SamueI_Longsinith_of.  Bolton was the murderer.  Longsmith lived some twenty miles  away and was a person whom the  dreamer had met but once or twice.  His wife told him to think no more  about it, but to go to sleep. A second  time he awoke from the effects of the  samo dream and announced his resolution to take steps the following morning- to seo what could come of it. Accordingly he went to Bolton the next  day and sought a warrant for the ar.-  rest of Longsmith. The magistrate,  howevov, refused to grant it upou such  evidence. Passing through the market  place, he met Longsmith aud invited  him to go to if public house to hear  something ho had to communicate to  him. There, locking tlio door, ho  charged him with tho crime. Long-  smith was staggered nud faintly denied tho accusation. In his confusion  ho snid ho was Innocent, for he did  not strike the blow,  "Then ybu know the man who did,"  replied tho accuser, and Longsmith  was arrested and examined. He prevaricated at tho examination and was  reiniindod for three day*. At tho end  of thnt time and after many hours*  prayer lie confessed that ho hnd beon  induced to join throo men in a robbing  expedition, when, mooting Horrocks,  who iiiiulo Homo resistance, hi.i throo  companions murdered lilm. This confession enmo out liof'oru tlio grand Jury,  nnd LongHinlth was brought to trial.  Tho fact of tho dronm wns not offorod  lu evidence, but other testimony sut'-  llciont to convict lilm was produced.  A fow days before Iho execution ho  mado a full acknowledgment of hia  gUllt.

"When once yoii understand the art  of bathing in the great Salt lake of  Utah it is the finest diversion on earth,  but it is not apt to result pleasantly to  the man who does uot heed the advice  of the experienced," said li citizen of  Salt Lake City. "At any other bathing  resort in the, world the swimmer can  play in the waves, dive and disport  himself as he pleases, but not so in  this wonderful sheet of water .In the  west and all on account of its extraordinary saline qualities.

T  JohnHawkes,   editor of the Carn-  dufE    Gazette,    is    a    forceful   figure  among   the people of the Northwest  Territories,   He is as sturdy and independent of mind as he is vigorous  of body. JEMs .opinions he   forms   for  such stinging punishment as will make  himself, and permits no other man to.  him bitterly regret having entered the  do his thinking.   He has strong con-  water.

These,    however,    are    the]  mere fxcresoences of a mind that has i  reached    definite   conclusions   on   all  mouth is cause for grief.  knows enough  to protect himself in  sensitive places he will admit that no-  is;'widely, known   in   the   West.     In  1887 ho was an   unsuccessful candidate for    the   Territorial   Assembly,;  and    in    tho   election   of    1896   he  stumped Northeastern Assiniboia   as  a Dominion    Conservative candidate.  Ho is   widely   known as an effective  platform  speaker,  and  as a  forceful  writer.'  Within tho past,few months  Mr. Hawkes has   gained   widespread  notoriety by his announcement of his  intention.. to     support   the   Liberal  Government���������chief!v   on    its   present  railway policy.     This action   is   another illustration of ��������� his fair-minded  openness "Eo argument and his native  jindependence of thought,  as he   has,  las is well known, been a lifelong, ae-c  tive Conservative.   The political conversion   of   such   a   "man    as     Mr.  Hawkes is rightly interpreted by' hisi  friends as an event   of    considerable,  J importance,' for his influence    is,   as  ������������������ has ,bcon said,  considerable,  and his  ,,'fame is more widespread than is the  lot ofthe average editor in a small  ��������� town.  j Editor Hawkes in,his time has set  type, railroaded, "punched bulls,"  plowed, split rails, and ginned, cotton; he has campaigned in England,  and from the Rockies to; the , East':;  ho, knows the continent from the  Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Gulf of  Mexico, and frown. New''York to British Columbia, but he is proudest of  all that he is a newspaper man. And.  like the great    Disraeli,    he    "knows  where iu the world is the bathing so  fine* or so stimulating in its effects."  The English Fins.  i matters after careful thought and deliberation, and therefore holds with  tenacity what it believes. Each  judgment at which Mi:.

If you were to announce some evening that you could stick a lighted emu-  die into a glass of water until it wae  submerged almost up to tbe wick nnd  that the candle would not go out, hut  would burn down to the very end of  its wick instead, wouldn't everybody,  laugh at you? *  Get a candle and drive a very small  nail into the bottom end.   Thc candle  THE CANDLE IN THE GLASS.  should be about three inches long. Fill  a glass with water, light the candle  and stick it into the glass. The can-  die floats and the.nail weighs down  the end; which results in the candle;  floating perpendicularly, as shown,in  the illustration. '  * But what1 is to prevent it from burning down to the surface of tbe >, water-  and going out?  That is the secret of tbe trick, and"  not one person in a hundred would  think of the true cause, which is very,  simple and natural.  , The candle loses its weight as it  burns. The' remaining portion, grow-  ing-rlighter,--keeps-rising-to-the-topr-  pulling the naii up with it. The water maintains tbe same distance from'  the wick it bad in the beginning of the  experiment, and the candle burns merrily away until it reaches tbe end of  its, wick, when there/will still be  enough tallow left to support the nail���������  if it is small enough���������and then it ie  your turn to laugh.���������New York Mall,  A Strict Old Ln'lr.

DEN OF WILD BEASTS.'  A Gnmo That Qtvea Plenty of Fn������  and Lota of Exercise.  In the game of. "tho den of wild  beasts" each playor. represents some  ferocious wild animal, such as panther,  .wolf, Hon or'bear. Each chooses a  tree or post or stono for his particular  den. As a signal for tho game to com-  menco all mnko :n tcrriblo noise, Imitating tho animals thoy pretend to be.  Tho most venturesome then loaves  his don and advances toward the mld-  dlo of the playground, whero ho dances  around, trying to entico tho other animals from their lairs. Suppose the  wolf comes out flrst. Perhaps a Hon  and a. tiger will immediately follow.  Then tho wolf calls out, "I'm nftcr the  Hon!" ��������� Tho wolf starts in pursuit, and  the lion tries to got homo to his don  boforo bolng caught. If the wolf  catches him ho takes him back to bis  own lair, nnd thoro tho Hon has to  stay throughout tho rest nf the game  unless tho wolf hlmsolf Is caught,  No two aro allowed to chase tho same  animal ut tho uauio tlmo, and tho chase  belongs to tho ono who first calls "I'm  after so and ool" No animal can bo  takon while he is bringing a captive  homo.  , It ofton happens that all the animals  are In tho field nt tho snmo tlmo, oach  In pursuit of his prey. Thon lt is most  exciting, Whonovor tho captor of an  animal is himself captured tho prison*  or Is froe to loavo the den and go back  fo his own lulr. Tho gnmo ends only  whon all tho animals are caught and  Imprisoned in ono don.  . : , 1  A Maalr Hen, /  He-You say you like a manly man.  What is your idea of a manly man?

Tbe girl, to me, remained distinct from both of them; her r.al  personality hovered just beyond my  mental grasp. If she were Sibyl, then  some strange transformation had taken  place; some image had effaced my confused recollection of the child, substituting itself instead and in such form  that I could not recognize tho two as  different views* of the same individual-'  Returning;' to the consideration ot  Trask, I asked myself why he had al-  ways shown such feeling, for the girl,  why he had sent the liliesjto her?  "I give him up," said I suddenly,  speaking aloud, to my own surprise  ancl confusion.  "Give whom up?" demanded.Trask.  "There was some kind of a biting  bug flying around," said I weakly,  "and I had been trying to catch him."  This explanation was received witfc  credence, yet I felt the need of diverting attention.  ."Trask," said I, "we've fallen Into a  great fit of the blues for no especial  reason that I can see, and you're the,  worst of the three. Tell me: candidly  what seems to you to.be the matter  with this world.; I 'speak of general  principles, of course, and not of your  privato affairs."  "The trouble with life," said he,  frowning, "is that a man Is asked to  fight battles after they are done, to  wave bis sword upon lost fields and  beg the dead of yesterday to. arise and  follow him."  "That sounds to me like some form  "offataliBm","said"I: = -~r���������  "It ls a general kick," growled Trask.  "I am not ambitious to give it a philosophical title. Destiny has too much  the start of a man; He arrives  afciong prearranged conditions and  looks around, and, loi Uo must cros������5a  lake ln a boat from which his greatgrandfather knocked out the bottom,  and the oars havo been made wrong  by some one whom be never saw or  heard of."  "Don't you care, If he's all right himself," said a voice.   "He'll get across."  I beheld Lucy Ann, who came softly  around the big bush in the shade of  : which Trask was sitting,     j  Trask's countonanco brightened re-  markably aa ho sprang to his feet  "I thought you couldn't come," said  he. "Your aunt was very dlscourag-  ing."  "Well, hero I nm," said Lucy Ann  cheerfully.  "jsitft this lovoly?"

Trask finished his sketch with enthusiasm, and Miss Jones and I were  permitted to see it as he was adding  the "last strokes. It was a remarkable  study, very pleasing'to the eye, but not  a portrait. Miss Jones viewed it and  expressed her appreciation in technical  terms. And last of ail it was exhibited to Lucy Ann, who seemed to be;  startled by this delicious flattery. She.  glanced quickly at Trask and-'her  cheeks flushed ::!->.

The manuscript  was hailed up iu'a box, with various  documents, papers and books containing, records of laboratory work which  I had shipped froin Germany. I had  seen that box unopened in our house  since my return.  In New York I bad not sung except  In my room at the hotel .when my  father was there, and once afterward  to Cushing. If I had favored either of  them with ^that. particular composition,  beyond iTdbubt I>Bhould~bave toldThT  story of it and I could not; remember  to have, done so..SIn fact, I would  have staked my head that the song had  never been, heard in this country until  the girl gave voice to It there upon the  rocks behind her veil of flame,  y  It seemed that she did not know it  all, for''she broke off in tho middle of  a phrase and went bock to the beginning. Th'iSf-'must be by way of suggestion to hie, and so I sang the  strange little song, being; Inspired to a  fairly creditable performance by the  fitness of the theme. When I had finished, there enme a fnint sound across  the water like tho clapping of hands.  Then the .fire was scattered suddonly,  nlmo3t as if there had been an explosion iu the midst Of It, nnd I saw for a  moment a dark figure, whether of man  or woman-I, oould not.tell, but It  seemed not to bo hers.

A Philadelphia despatch says that  much excitement was caused in shipping circles Monday by a report received at the Maritime Exchange,  that tho British steamship Kelvin,  bound from New York for Buenos  Ayrcs and Montevideo, was passed  at sea 300 miles east of Cape 1-1 attorns, abandoned by her crew. The  Kelvin with her cargo is valued at  nearly ������600,000. and is one of the  most valuable' prizes left adrift in recent years. Her cargo, whicli is mado  up of agricultural implements, machinery, hardware and .merchandise,  is alone*- valued at $400,000. As this  prize lies but a short distance, off  shoro and directly in the track of  vessels making their way to the  United States from South American  and West Indian ports, it is the  opinion that, she will be picked up  by some lucky shipmaster ana toived  into a harbor on the southern coast  of Iho United States. >To particulars  concerning the derelict craft other  than the fact that slio was passed  abandoned and with a heavy list to  starboard by the British steamship  Hubert, at Barbados from New  York, could bo learned. Capt. Good  cabled that the Kelvin was sighted  on October 7 in latitude y_, longitude 70. Owing to a heavy sea running at the time it was impossible to  board thc ship. The Kelvin left New  York October 3, under command of  Captain McLennan. She ls a, new  craft, having been, launched in Glasgow last February. The vessel registers 2.2G6 tons net and is 852 feet  in length. 4(> feot in breadth of  beam and 24.3 feet in depth of hold.

POPE TO SHUT   THE VATICAN'S  BIliD HOUSES.  The cardinals are becoming more  and more dissatisfied with the way  the Pope tried, to, cut down expenses,  says a cablegram irom Konio. Not  only has he deprived thom of a large  part of their income, but he is do-^  ing away with all superfluous expenses in. his own household,  and says that he intends to keep in  his service only c ������uch 'servants who  are absolutely ��������� necessary, and the  cardinals deem Sus a mistake, as the  Italian peoplo are very fond of display and are apt to lose their respect for a Popo who is tpo plain  and simple in his ways. One of the  Pope's latest acts was the discharge  of the mounted escort of six men  which used to accompany him in his  walks through the Vatican grounds,  declaring that not orily were the services qf'these men superfluous, but  tliat their presence made him feel ill  at ease. Now he has turned his attention to the bird houses built .in  the Vatican grounds under the personal supervision of the late Leo  X1TL, and which are among the largest in the >vorld and contain a number of rare birds received from all  parts of the world. Popo Leo was  very much interested in these avaries  and often visited them," but his successor regards' their maintenance as  extravagance, and the birds will now  be killed, stuffed and _ distributed  among the various educational institutions m Home.

The blood cannot possibly be pure,  a!nd in a fit condition to nourish thc  body when the kidneys are diseased  and fail to filter: from it the poisonous waste matter.  J?r.

The pain  would seize me at the ankle and work  up the leg almost to the body,  i "Believeing this trouble to arise  from kidney derangements and bad  circulation of the blood, I bought  some of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver  Pills at W.

It is now evident that that the  JapR had thoroughly prepared  themselves W the movement, that  has been unmasked. They went  about their task coo ly, deliberately"  and systematically. Temptation to  rush in and overtake the enemy ue-  fore he had completed his dispositions was determinedly* set" aside.  Whether or not the artillery of the  Japs was superior to that oi their  enemy, as claimed by the Russians  in extenuation of their defeat* it  was sufficient for the purpose. Tliey  have gained a prestige that will be  of great assistance to Ihera in the  work of the future. The Japanese  commanders have bfien resourceful  enough to feize the opportunities  that presented themselves, if Ihey  had not, the first grent victory on  land���������in the neighborhood of" the  Yalu River���������might not hnve been  won at so small a sacrifice, nnd it  is quito clear that at that timo  Kuropntkiii's tactics were eji])f>r  quickly comprehended by the Jnps  or that they were not carried out  satisfactorily by his subordinates.  The Russians work mi? lit surelv  have been done with more dexterity  and at less cost in men, artillery,  riflea and ammunition to say  nothing about the moral effect upon  the combatants on both sides of  euch a defeat nnd victory.  Now thnt Port Arthur has capi  tulated, the Russian fleet there  rendoiod bora do combat, it. in pa  tent thnl the eyes of tho whole  world nro turned towards the Japanese fl'Ot peeking to intercept  RojoBtvonsky, It is unlikely that  Kouropatkin will asHiime the of.  tensive so soon aftor the Port Arthur  blow. Tho Jnpancfo army opros-  inp bim will probably rest easily.

A nasty head-on collision occurred Thursday between No. 15 with  a train of empties from the..Wharf,  nnd No 17 with loaded train from  No. 4, at the Chinatown1, siding.  Both engines were!'damaged, one  having to be'shippecTto Wellington  for repairs, and another brought up  from Lady-miih to take lier place.  The other has been .repaired here,  not being much hurt. A heavy fog  hung over everything that afternoon, hence the.crefws were unable  to. se'e;.lhe opposing train until -Just'  heiore collision, whea eacli engineer  reversed and   jumped,  fortunately  4\4_hiU.t44^  instigation will he held.  JAPANESE REJOICE.  As an expression of delight.in the  fall of Port Arthur, the Japanese of  this place organized a pwession  last Wednesday and headed by the  brans band, which they bad engaged for ihe occasion, ..marched  from old No. 1 to No. 8 Jap:.', wn,  carrying banners and other, decor-'.  atiou_v several mounted "Marshals  giving a warlike air to thw proeos-  tion. The .National hymn wa.s-  eung and in all respects the doinon-  struiion much rosetubled o..e of our  own. In the evening, a grand cor-  loheri was held at No. 1 which wins  continued the next, day,  Mr G. Roe of Courtney, is grov������  ing over the loss of hiu fav. rilo  mare, "Irish Girl," who lust week  got out from his premises and was  later found with a broken thigh.  The poor beast had evidently injured herself jumping a high log,  and had suffered all night at'ter-  wards, unable to move far from the  spot, A bullet mercifully ended  her sufferings. The mare was a fast  one, having won several nuv li'ie  nnd in Nanaimo. Sincere regret is  felt at her lor'H.
