'*TV������ \  THE HARVEST OF WAR.  and  souls  Some Statistics Which Miould Cause Serlona  Thought.  When Attila, the ���������.''Scourge God."  was beaten by Aetius at Chalons in  451, it was said he left 100,000 men  on the Held, of battle, and the groans  of the Wounded among them, slowly  dying where they lay, were heard for  many nights afterwards, rising  falling upon the wind.  Leul never sped half the  that have been "sped by steel. Tho  ancient broadsword and the pike were  far more powerful .implements of depopulation than the firearms which  took their placo. At the battle of  Cannae, 40.0(K) out of 80.000  Romans were killed���������i.e., 50 per  cent. Jn the battle of Hastings the  victorious Normans lost 10.000 out  of 60.000 men; at t'recy, MO.OOO out  of 160.000 Frenchmen sutVered in the  horrible confusion when rank after  rank'of knights and men-at-arms fell  over each other and died under tho  mere weight of* their comrades. At  Bannockburn 88,000 out of 135,000  were butchered, mostly in !the retreat.  In proportion to the number of  shots fired the, losses in the Crimea  ���������were small. It is calculated that the  British fired, altogether 15.000,000  shots, but only 21,000 Russians were  hit; therefore," only every seven hundredth shot proved deadly. The 29,-  500,000 shots discharged by the  French in the same war killed 53,-  000 ltuss'ians, every five-hundredth  shot taking efifect. The Russians, on  the other hand, killed 43.00Q allied  troops with 45,000,000 cartridges.  Thus only the nine hundredth and  tenth bullet found its billet���������a proportion to be expected from such ill-  prepared peasant troops. In the  Italian campaign of 1859 both sides  employed modern guns, and the number which fell at Solferino and  Magenta amounted to 99 per thousand combatants, ln the German  ���������war with France in 1870-71, breechloaders came into general operation  for; the first time, and here was  again demonstrated the truth qf the  military axion>���������the better the weapons the less the fatalities.  In South Africa in 1899 the losses  per 1,000 British soldiers were 064,  while in Egypt in, 1885 the number  ���������was only a trifle over 1 per thousand. During 12 years' smaller wars  out of 92,650 soldiers taking part in  --.thonv-i, 89.6_jv,enia_k IJJj^b^LfiiiJiiila  si ore than 2 per cent. '  '   ��������� ���������  In the Franco-German war the  proportion of those who fell during  seven months was 50 per thousand.  According to. official-statistics 1.16,-  812 soldiers were wounded, of whom  99,566 recovered, while 11,023 died  Sn hospital. Thus gunpowder in tho  course of time has reduced the percentage of dead from one-third to  one-fourth of one-fifth, and the  adoption of the brwch-londor reduced  this percentage sti'.l further to one-  liintli.  "Modern weapons are therefore not  so harmful alter all, it is well to  remember, Tho old saw that every  "bullet has its billet will not bear  examination, since it takes, most  p'obubly, a good ton of lend to kill  a man in battle to-dny, nnd a careful military critic has come to the  smncliision that,'nil things considered, financially tt soldier's life costs  tihe enemy the substantial sum of  $7,000,  Tho keen, small modern bullet such  ns tho .Japanese are using disables,  but In the inajoril.v of cases does not  iiii.

Tyndall, Man.. Nov. 14.���������(Special)  Unable to work because of Kidney  Disease, pronounced incurable by tho  doctors, and fust becoming destitute,  Mr. .J. .J. Perkins, of this place,  found new life and health in -Dodd's  Kidney Tills, ln his gratitude he  wants all the world to know of his  cure,, and that he owes it to Dodd's  Kidney Pills.   Mr. Perkins says:  "After two years of Kidney Troublo  I got so bad the doctor said 1 was  incurable. I got still worse, and at  times had such terrible pains in my  bi\ck and kidneys that" I thought I  would die.  "I was unable to work and was becoming destitute when a friend persuaded me to try Dodd's Kidney  Pills. Five boxes cured me com-  ulctelv."  THE "COWBOY EARL."  G. T.  P.  PROGRESS.  ���������The chairman    of    the    transcontinental railway,  on being interviewed  at Ottawa, has given out. the following .statement:    "The   commissioners  being desirous of ..familiarizing themselves with as.much of  the territory  that     will    be.    transversed   by    the  transcontinental railway   as possible,  have just completed a tour, taking* in  Quebec,   Rdmunstan,   Connor,    Grand  Falls,  Woodstock,   Fredericton, Bois-  town,    St.  John,    Chipmnn, Moncton  and Halifax in  the east:   and  Winnipeg and adjoining places in thc west.  The work of the preliminary surveys  is  proceeding most  satisfactorily  all  along the line from Moncton to Lake  Abitibi  and    the   reports   so  far received are    very    encouraging.      Any  doubts  as  to   the  possibility of running a  good  line  around   the  corner  of the State of Maine have been set.  at  rest    by  the   report  of  the    engineer in charge of that section.     Thc  preliminary survey between Frederic-  It on and  Woodstock    is   about   coin-*  pleted and a good line has  been obtained.

All    the  parties who will be kept in the field  ; during the winter hnVe been supplied  .with all requirements   and    made   as  comfortable   as *-.possible.     While   at  |Winnipeg the commission    rented   offices in the new Union  Bank building  for   the    district   engineer, and it is  proposed  to commence    the work   of  surveying the rond  from that, end at  the earliest     possible   moment.      At.  present there,   are thirty-four parties  in  the field.     Arrangements    are be-  intj made to send a fortnightly  mail  to all the interior camps, tnuT parties  wishing to send letters to persons attached, to these camps should address  them in care of the head ollicent  Ottawa,  from which  place they  will be  forwarded as soon   as   the nuiil   .arrangements are completed, which will  he in n very short time, Each  camp  h the interior   is   furnished   with   n  ride,    iloiibkHwirreU'd    shotgun    and  fishing tackle.

At the timo  of his father's death, sonic fourteen  years ago, no trace of him could bo  found. 'J he last that had been heard  of him was that he had been part  owner of a ranch in Minnesota about  four years previously, that is to  say, in 1886.  But Ids whereabouts could not be  ascertained for a long, time, and  much money was spent in scouring  thc whole of the United States and  Canada, even to tho Yukon, in an  endeavor to apprise him of his father's death and of his own accession  to tho earldom beforo ho was fbund  living quietly in New York. During  his roving lifo in the United States  ho experienced many strange ups and  downs and extraordinary vicissitudes, cattle punching being the occupation in which he appears,to.havo  been chiefly engaged. Indeed for  long after his return to Ireland and  his establishment in his ancestral  home at Castle Martyr, he used to  go in* for wood chopping on an extensive scale, getting rid in this  manner of his superabundant energy,  and his lazy cottagers reaping the  benefit of his violent exertions. He  was at one time after his return vo*'  ported to be engaged to a Mrs. Francis Beedy of ..Philadelphia, but eventually married a Miss Thompson of  Surrey, by -whom he has several  children, the eldest of whom hears  the title of Viscount Boyle, Boyle  being likewise his patronymic, as it  is that of thc earls of Cork. The  Earl of Shannon is the chief of a  younger branch of the family, of  which Lord Cork is the head, and  it is his coat of arms which is emblazoned on thc head of the menu  cards and of the note-paper of the  Carlton Hotel, which commemorates  Lord Shannon's ancester, Lord tiarl-.  ton. Minister of State to Queen  Ann, and the creator of Carlton  House, afterwards the residence /of  King George IV. as regent.  Hud a Business Mind.

She held them: to a strict accounting in the matter of expenditure, and  if they did not make their" allowances,  last over a specified period she  sternly, called, them to account. One  week when the present Prince of  Wales was at Eton, candy, tarts and  other schoolboy delights proved his  financial undoing. He had spent a  month's allowance in one week. With  impeeuniosity and indigestion came  repentance. Accordingly ho wrote a  long niea culpa, to his grandmother,  confessing his fault, and asking for  an advance on account of tho next  installment of pocket money. In reply lio received a long letter of admonition from tho Queen, refusing  his request, The letter clotfed with a  sentence in which the writer,expressed tho pain that it gave lier in having so to write to him.

The Dutch peasant lives with canala  all about him and reaches his cottage  by way of a drawbridge. Perhaps it  is in the blood of the Dutch child,  says a writer in M. A. P., not to fall  into a canal. At.all events the Dutch  m������ther never appears to anticipate  such a possibility.  One can imagine the average English or American mother trying to  bring up a family in a house surrounded by canals. Shf would never have  a moment's peace 'until the children  were in bed. But then the mere sight  of a canal to the English child suggests the delight, of a sudden aud unexpected bath.  An Englishman inquired of a Dutchwoman, "Does a Dutch child ever by  any chance fall into a canal?"  "Yes," she replied, "cases have been  known."  "Don't you do anything for it?" continued the questioner.  "Oh, yes," she answered. "We haul  them out again." /     ' /  "But what I mean is,"* explained 'th������  Englishman, "don't you do anything  to prevent their falling in���������to save  them from falling in again?"  "Yes," she answered, "we spank  them." .���������;,/     .; *���������,., /   '  Calculating the Distance ot a Storm.  Although lightning and thunder occur always simultaneously an interval  Of shorter or longer duration is usually observed between these two phe-  ,'nomena, which is due to the fact that  -sound-travels-only-at-the~ratc-of-l,-iOO-  feet per second, whiie the passage of  ��������� light is almost instantaneous. Based  upon this fact, It is an easy matter to  toll, at least approximately, how many  miles a thunderstorm is away. A normal pulse will bent one stroke to tho  second, and by counting the pulse  beats during the interval of the lightning and the thunder the lapse of seconds is arrived at and consequently  the number of feet, which can be reduced to miles. ������  For example, if thirty seconds elapse  between the flash of the lightning and  the crash of thunder'the storm center  is at a distance of 83,000 feet or about  six and one-half miles.

He  had always been slow to scrape acquaintance, even witb men. and. so far  as he could remember, had never ln his  life done so withr a woman. Unless  Dorothy���������he had heard her aunt call  her Dorothy���������should give hhn an opening he told himself sadly that he should  never venture to address her.  Aftor awhile a waiter passed through  the car. announcing dinuer. Howard  was hungry, but determined to wait  until Dorothy should go ln. The bar  mltrht be owiwde-t. and be might b"l  compelled to elt with her at ihe same  table, where he might hope that the  chances of the meal might enable hita  to address her. But, wait as lie might.  Dorothy showed no signs of budging,  nnd long after thc last call for dinner  had been circulated he was forced to go  In alone.  While dining he wondered over the  situation. Thp girl had eaten nothing  since she came on board the ti^iin, nearly six hours before. She had no lunch  with hor. not even n box of i-Jindy. She  was a solid, healthy girl, not by any  means-one of those fragile humifies who  live ou air. and, should have had an appetite to correspond. What tins dickens  could be the matter?  The next morning wns the same.  Dorothy sat motionless, looking in the  eyes of the by this time besotted youth  lovelier than ever. As a matter of fact,  the lack of her morning coffee Lad given  the girl a headache, while the lack,of  other food made ber savage and miserable.  At last came n crisis. Just as the  waiter passed through-with his "Last  call for breakfast in the dining ear!"  the train stopped. Uot at a station, but  out in -a -field. After ten minutes had  crept by without: sign of movement,  Howard,' wh'^-lind been waiting for  breakfast as he, had, waited for dinner,  went out to investigate. Soon he came  back and went straight up to Dorothy  with determination in his oyes. "I beg  your pardon." he said, with a composure that astonished himself, "but we  have been stopped by a wreck- across  the track and -will be delayed atfleast  six hours. They are going to cutoff  the diuer nnd send it back as soon'as  breakfast is. over. If jou want'anything to cat.you had. better g'etitndw,  before it is'too late;" ", ''���������  ,'glx. hours Jongcr!

But I'm  not hungry."   '  Kot hungry. Howard stared at her  incredulously. To his. certain knowledge she had eaten nothing for twenty-four hours. Not hungry! The thing  was preposterous. He glanced at her  white cheeks, then with sudden suspicion at her pocketbook.' "I haven't had  breakfast myself yet." he said. "Won't  you take pity on me and be my guest?  l-enn't bear to eat alone,"  For uu Instant .the girl gazed at bim  while 11 mist swam before, her-eyes.  "Thank you so much." she said humbly.

Hooks O  ��������� ������* ���������  DeOeCeCcOeOeCOeOeOeO������OeO������0  F.y and by my attention began to  wander. ...Tbere was a suggestion of  music in the air; no more than that���������I  could not say I heard it. But I became  uneasy and glanced down toward the  lake shoro to see If 1 could, detect the  glow of a fire. The moon had now become bright, and if the fire burned  upon the rocks it threw no visible  gleam, upward. So 1 lingered awhile  upon the road until tho thought that I  might be wasting my best delight,of  those days impelled me to,make sure.  As 1 passed the house. I caught a  glinipsejjf Lucy ^Vnn's gray gown uud  bonnet In the main porch. The'girl  was leaning against a post of the trellis, as if watching the moon which  shone above the bill. Her face looked  so haggard, old aud weary that I  halted suddenly when tirtit; I saw it  ..* among the leaves. She had not noticed me till then, and she sprang back,  startled. Perhaps she thought 1 could  not see that she put up both hands to  ber face, but I could well perceive the  gesture despite the screen of foliage.  Upon the instant I spoke her name,  ,but she pretended not to hear and hurried into the house.  lit cut my lignrt to know that the  poor child suffered thus, and I felt  ashamed to have Intruded upon her  '. grief. She bore it so well when under  observation that it seemed doubly regrettable to.have surprised'lier in the  moment of her confession to the caressing night. The girLought to go away.  It would be much better for her t'o go  than for Trask. I wondered, walking  down toward the lake, whether :it  would bev possible to speak to Mrs.  Witherspoon upon the subject wltb'-;  sufficient delicacy. Somehow she did  not 'figure in my mind as one who  would be easy to approach upon such  a matter, and my own years scarcely"  fitted me for the role that I should  -~have-to-plajMn-the~scener--It-might-be~  possible'for my father to suggest a  better way.; He would surely pity ber.  the more because it was Sibyl who bad  won tlie love that poor .little Lucy  Ann's heart starved for.    ���������  It was Incredible that ''}fiss Jones"  ehould not have seen the pitiful romance so near hctv so closely involved  with her own, but she was doubtless,  busy with her own trouble, the dread-  lul peril that she m!gb,t have to,marry  me in order to pay the, lifelong debt of  gratitude that she owed my father.  The thought made me laugh, especially because I wns on my way to  bear her sing, to play at love with a  voice aud' pretend I did not know  whose it was. And that vlow "of tlio  matter brought ine tlio recollection of  my talk with Derringer nnd his assertion that I was wholly In error. I  prayed to the moon that Derringer  might be right lis I loosed the boat  f rom 'heruioprlngs and floated out Into  tho lake.  When I came Into the range of the  fire, 1 saw it, dimmer than usual, yet  that-might he no more than tho ofl'oct  of tbe moonlight. At tbo proper ciis-  tauco I halted and tlien sung tlie llrst  bar of the Swiss song. There waB no  response. I tried "Heart's Delight"  wltli the mme result; mid meanwhile  tho lire suroJy waned.  I, looked nt my watch nnd wns surprised to iind thnt, It' wns nearly 10  o'clock, Tbo girl' bad given mo tip und  returned to tbo apple tree lodge Given  mo up? This wuh taking for grunted  that sbo prized tliiw evenings iih 1 did,  nnd I bnd not the right to do It. "Miss  .Tonos" could hnvo no Interest In alluring wltb mo. lt would bo biirdly fair  to Trask. Vet beyond a doubt It wan  tlio girl who snnff, nnd Trunk bad sent  UlloB to hor. If she wore not "Miss  Jones,", why, thnt ogaln wits hardly  fair, nnd If tlit' 'girl' were' not 'Sibyl  there could bo uo oNplunutlou of any*  thing, "i  At this point In my mental eonfuslOB  tho boat's bow whirled round with a  little gust nud grated upon tlio lodged  aa onco boforo.   I glanced quickly at  tho flro.  It continued to glow,   Tliere.  Could ub no one on tbo rooks.  Instantly 1 conceived a deed of daring sweeter tlmu till tlie petty larcenies  find doprodatlous of iqy youth In tho  llttlo village where wo used to spend  our summers ��������� ihe Quitting of apples  from Dynr's rod true io -which, tbo bull-  , dog wns chained, the'midnight alarm  rung by Deacon Hobart's horso tied by  his tail to tbe bell topo of the church,  the assortment of gravestones from tbe  marble yard set np In a groxvaomo nnd  suggestlvo row on Dr. Westeott's inwn.  The Joy of all these feats und I bo suutl-  ment of May baskets fastened by trem-  tiling,hands, upon tho doorknob of tny  sweetheart's bouse-a different doorknob every year, thank* to the hlesHod  Ineomdnriey of boyhood���������these were revived In my heart when I decided to  Co ashore. It was taboo, but I would  dare it  1 made tbe landiut with cmot ������*������m  =SE  and stepped out upon a roeic'wirn as  much caution as if'it had been thin ice.  At the water's-edge the rocks were  piled as.irregula.yly asj if they '..had been  poured out of a "giant's basket, but  hackof them there lay twoTflat ���������'topped  bowlders of an e\\en height, makiug a  floor nearly'3.0 feet'long, divided in a  line parallel to the,, shore by a fissure  wide as a grave and deep as half a  dozen, as 1 guessed after dropping a  Jittlc stone into it.  The fire was built upon an iron grating laid across this fissure and secured  at one side by a chain fastened to au  pyebolt set into tbe rock. -������ I judged tbat  this apparatus liad'to do Vi'itlv fish dinners^ cooked  besido the lake. ; It ex-  / made, the lending with orcnt care.  plained sufficiently the sudden extinfr  tion of tho lire which bad puzzled me  It needed uo more than u pull upon the  chain to send tho lire down Into the  -rift.,;,,,.,,  ,...,,..,,���������������������������.  .,,.���������., ,.��������� ."..:.���������,,..  ik'blnd tbo rearward bowlder tbe  ledge roso ten feet, rounded like tbe  inside of a cup, and from lis summit  there was "a geutlo'slope to meet-the  descending grade of tbo orchard. Al  tlio little,..'cliffs foipt wad a; singular  conformation of the rocks where one  might recline in, groat comfort,-arid  upon .taking niy.���������p||������co. tliere I discovered that It was possible to look out  upon tbo lako wlthbut bblng greatly  dazzled by the (Ire and still bo almost  entirely shielded from observation.  This Intrusion wiih it most agreeable  sin, a thing to enjoy In tho ilblng und  bo pleasantly ashamed of afterward.' I  lay some minute* lu this nook of the  rocks, curious to reconstruct our little  romunco as tlio girl had t^jeu It. I saw  bow the IIrelight was. screened .by the  rocks''h6 that I had not boon 'alilo to  discern lt until I bud drifted Into th������  proper field. In tbo samo way my boat  must htia'o appeared suddenly to oue  sluing tboro. I was tiattprod by tho  Idea that sho had watched for It.

A New York despatch says: A man  born in a European country of a  Chinese father and English mother  may not be deported from the United  States under the Chinese exclusion  act, according to an opinion handed  down tho other day by Judge Bolt  in the United States district court.  Tho case in which the decision was  made was that of San Yuen, 'whom  the federal authorities sought to deport. He is 40 years old and had  been in this country twenty-four  years. His counsel contended that  inasmuch ns his mother was an English woman and ho was born In England, he was as much of an Englishman as a Chinese, and therefore  could not come within the meaning  Of the statute excluding Chinese.  This contention was sustained by the  court, who held that upon question,  of descent the mother's status governs.   -f  Those Whom neglected coughs  have killed were once as healthy  and robust as you.

A Chicago exchange says: The American element in the great Northwest rapidly is becoming a most important, factor in molding the futuro  of that part of Canada. The newcomers who arrived from the United  States to settle in the wheat country during the financial year formed  84.66 per cent of the entire immigration, against 38.65 per cent. British,  the balance being made up of (Jali-  cians, Italians, Jews, Germans, Russians, Finns, French and Belgians in  the order named. All reports from  trustworthy sources indicate that the  American percentage of the total immigration next season will show an  increase, and this is not at all unlikely to exceed the figures from the  mother country. But it must not be  forgotten, in looking at future possibilities of development along the lines  of nationalities, that there is a  steady migration of the young Canadian element from the older pro-  vintes into the Northwest; and that  a proportion of the American seUlexs  consists of Canadians who settled in  the border northwest states nnd are  returning to Canada, or the sons of  Canadian settlers in the northwestern states.

It is clear that all gaming  is not immoral any more than all  kissing or all money -getting i* immoral, though both may conduct to  criminal excels. It is a question  of conscience. Human governments  have long ceafed to claim jurisdiction over ths motives of men, pimply from the impossibility of nscer-  taininpr them, and hence the practical disregard by courts and po'ice  of the stringent laws against gambling, which have been for years on  the ptatute-boolcs of almost all  States and Provincoe.

The LogislatureB  hnve been trying for thrco-qunrtcru  of a "century to make the pnlo of  alcoholic drinks a crlm*>, but what  has it all accomplished? Tntoxi-  cmts aro used as universally as  ever.

Gaming at private  houses, in the social and d< mesiic  oircle, in clubs, on the speed of  horses and on athletics, while representing perhaps less considerable  bums of money lost and won, embraces a much more considerable  number of people of every age and  sex among its devotees.

We; must concede that  the habit is one not to be encouraged, and most of us hnve a pr-cep-  tion that there is vice in it eou-e-  whore, but precisely where thw vice  begins or ends is not bo apparent.  No one probably fully realized how  complexly he is capable of being re  duced io the level of a beasi of prty  till he has contracted this pusi-iun.  A habit the tendency of whioh is to  exclude from the heart all consideration for a fellow-creature rapidly  and of necessity dries up all hu-  mane sensibilities and affections.  Can this he said so unqualifiedly of  ,any other vice or criminal propen������  'aity ?

Superintendent Robinson tells us  in culm matter of fac\ tones that  "the Board of Education  has decided to replace "Evangeline'wish,  another poem."      This  means  :of  course, that ihe "H'.:'j������rd," otherwise  Superintendent Kobinson, menus to  s.iddle every parent with addition}!i  expense for more boi>ks, of a cotn-  p-aratively ufeless.nature.--.. lt.   u of  lilile   moment,    whither   chil������!reii  read "Evangeline"' or the l'Lay.:of  the last Mini.strel" as proposed.

But >is one is now being  used, why burden the parents with  a further unnecessary expanse?   In  many cases 'private' tuition is replacing the so called '"free" ������<ysiem  simply because it is found that tlie  .incidental expenses  of  the sclnol  system   are   becoming    too   large.  Mr Robinson further states that he  thought schools.should  l>e. < pened  at 9 o'clock ihe year r..und, giving  as a backing to this opinion  that  "all artisan .and''labourers are at.  work liy 8 o'clock."   Then why not  drive children ,'o school a 8i 'clock?  As it is now, while children  are  supposed to 1 ave fcchi-ol at n certain  hour, it is always a full half  hour inter before diemi-sal,   Supt.  Robinson evidently does not believe  iii  allowing a child any time tor  recreation or pursuits of any kind  ou: side of the grinding drudgevy of  a chiss room.    It may surprise that  gentleman    to   know   that   much  learning may'be acquired elsewhe:*e,  that  the  mi; d of a child should  have some relaxation, aiid that the  sys'eni of put!ing children to work  either  menially or bodily, at ihe  same hours as artisans and labourers   is   now   generally considered  wrong, but then perhaps Mr Robit!-  son  never was a child      He may  have 'just growed" like Tiipsy.
