Since thu opening of the branch lino of  railway from Spencer's B idgo into the  Nicola Valley this spring, the Nicola Vajl ly  Coal aud Uoko Company, Limited, have  beon developing its extensive ooal fields,  aud it is without doubt iho finest coal yet  discovered in British Columbia, They have  live Beams, one of which Is an excellent  blaoksuriihiug coal.  In an interview with a Vancouver daily  "World" reporter relative to the above,  Mr. R. C. Campbell-Johnson, who is a  recognized authority on B.

To the Editor oi News, '  1 Dear Sir ;  Permit me space in your paper to express myself regarding  Dr. Saunders' opinion of the over estimated value of land on  Vancouver Wand. My farm is  valued at double what it was  when I purchased it years ago. I  think my lan-l worth ������175 an  acre. I have .some worth much  less,'but then ltud should be valued at what it brings in. If it  paid me $600 an acre would I  not be justified in valuatiug it  at that, much per acre?, Iu my  opinion laud ghoul i be valued at  its productive value just the way  11 man's labor is valued.

The  by-law some time ago passed its  third reading-was considered aud  finally adapted, but up to Saturday night the mayor had not attached his signature although  the document was ready, however he may probably do so in  the course of a few days or at  next meeting of Council.  The tax was in force for six *  mouths and during that time  many travellers avoided the city  of Cumberland, as a timid child  avoids the darkness of night.  During that time the city treasury was made richer by less than  $250, but the loss to the city has  been considerable.  When   the   Knights    of  the  Grip come   to city   on   a Tuesday evening or Thursday   afternoon of each week, all  the way  from five to twenty    strong, , it  means money left in  the city of  Cuniberland before the travellers  go away Friday  morning���������money to hotels and livery   stables;  This_money- eventually benefits-  all, as  money has a knack of  passing from one hand to another  Besides,   during   the   past  six  months   numerous   trips   have  been   made ,to Nanaimo   and  Vancouver by our merchants, as  certain   travellers   rather   than  make, such an incouvenient and  unpleasant trip preferred paying  the   expenses of   the iutended.  purchaser,    to these cities.   It  would be a hard matter to estimate iu cash the real loss to the  city.

Total 8602.50.  We endeavored to obtaiu s������me  statistics from the livery stables,  but unfortunately they are so incomplete owing to changes in  ownership that we do not feel  likepublishingtheui. They however go to show that while there  hns been a great falling off iu  trade, many of the travellers obtained rigs almost Immediately  on reaching town and drove outside the city limits rather than  remain to do business and have  to pay the tax.

THE   NEWS,   CUMBERLAND,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  HAVE PROVEN BEST  FOR LIVER TROUBLES  Hnd   Constipation���������Strong  Letter in  Recommendation of  DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS..  With the liver in healthful, petive  condition tnere ia no trouble from constipation, and tnis accounts for the  success of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Lirer  Bills as a positive cure for sluggish  action of the bowels.  Mia. R. Lockley Jones, Mount Tol-  mie, B.C., writes:  "I have used Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Ewer Pills for some years and always  Sure them in the house. They are the  only pills that relieve me from constipation and liver troubles, and I say  this after having tried nearly all kinds  without; benefit. I would not be with-  <oafc them, and have recommended  them to my friends, many of whom  can bear testimony to i.ieir great value  in liver and kidney complaints. I am  satisfied that Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver  Vills nro un quailed as a family medicine."  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills succeed   where   mere   kidney   medicines  fail because they act promptly and directly on the liver, take the work off  the kidneys, and then uy their invigorating action on the kidneys restore  them to health and vigor.  Because of the intimate and synipa  thetic relation of the liver and kidneys  I it is  useless  to  treat   them   indepen-  ��������� dantly of one another.    This faot was  in  the mind of Dr.  Chase    when    he  prepared the formula of his celebrated  Kidney -"Liver  Pills,  and the  phenonie-  ' nal success of this great medicine has  proven his wisdom,  I. Dr.  Chase's   Kidney-Liver Pills  positively  cure   liver    complaint,    bilious-  , ness,  constipation, backache   and   kidney disease.   One pill a dose, 25 cents  la   box,  at  all   dealers,   or  Edmanson,  i Bates & Co., Toronto.    To protect you  i against  imitations,    the    portrait   and  j signature of Dr. A. W.

HIGH  PRICE  OF  FLAX  SEED  Us t result of the new customs tar-  ������ff of ten cents per bushel on imported  Bas: seed, the price of ��������� flax seed is  mow $1.23 per bushel in Winnipeg. At  this price it is claimed that flax growing is moire profitable than wheat  growing, and it may be expected that  considerable quantities will be grown  in. the Canadian Northwest this year.  f?lax matures more quickly than  ���������vrheat and may consequently De sown  later. New settlers who have only  tnnem able to sow a small acreage of  ���������wheat can, after the wheat is Sown,  Sbreak up more land for flax seed.  Che seed may be sown as late as the  ���������middle of June, although May is considered ihe !best month. In fact flax  sseed seeme, to wait the farmer's convenience. It can be sown early pr  Sate, and as it is less liable to ,injury  firom weather than any of the'other  tcereala, it may be harvested after the  wheat, oats and barley have been  (gathered in. ' ���������  f&Ux seed is especially well adapted  -for-uewly-broken-land._^rof._Jlmffi_ol  ehe University of Minnesota, formerly  one of the professors of the Agricultural College at Guelph, Grit., says in  reference to this*. "The influence of  thn flax crop is helpful to the quick  ���������reduction of the prairie sod, otfing to  tfce peculiar nature of the fibrous  growth of the roots. These, penetrat  cblj every part, reduce the soil to a  disintegrated pulverulent mass, which  aa greatly favorable to the growth of  tlie succeeding grain crop other than  flax. It has also been noticed . that  grand orons of flax lollaw the breaking  ������p of a sod field. Why? For the  nmt reason* that good crops of flax  ate grown, on new breaking, me  yields fwmv oropB grown on .common  cod fcrod broken up are usually not  bo Rood as on new breaking, because  the elements of fertility are not usually present to the same extent.  Dentist Wanted.  Municipal authorities of Barmen,  Prussia, have been requested to advertise for a dentist who is willing to attend an elephant, an inmate of the  local zoo. The elephant suffers from  peevishness, In consequence of frequent attacks of toothache, caused by  an overabundance of Bweets. At such  times he is practically unmanageable.  The local dentists refuse to attempt to  fill his teeth. One dentist was brave  enough to try to examine an aching  tooth, but the enraged elephant chased  him "around the Inclosure, and the dentist afterward sent in a bill for dam'  age caused by the shock. ,  TORN BY WILD BEASTS  HISTORY OF A GREAT DISCOVERY  MOTHERS FEEL SAFE  -"Mothers who have used Baby's Own  "Tablets for their littlo ones say they  ���������'Kl   i������fe with the   Tablets at hand,  j'to? thw' ore a never falling cure for  ��������� Sf'Se minor ills  of babyhood    and  ���������Sldhood. %   Mrs      Urias    Cressman  .���������jfew Hamburg:.

DODDS '  KIDNEY  ;//( PILLS  ItllU.  i,-}X\\\SS^^  The old Roman heroes who were  torn by wild beasts In" tlieir rights in  the now ruined Collosseum at Rome  the Greelf Charioteers, and the gladiators who made fighting a profession,  all knew the virtues of herbal essences  for skin injuries and diseases. They  would emerge from a combat sore,  bleeding, and covered with wounds.  They would apply at night their secret  herbal balms, and in a tew days would  again be ready for combat. Their  ideal of a bulm or salve was the correct one���������a preparation which must  combine power with purity; and that  ideal is realized in Zam-fiuk.  Ordinary ointments, salves and embrocations are generally composed of  rancid animal fats and mineral poisons.  Zam-Buk on the contrary, Is a  healing balm, composed of highly refined saps and juice's got from certain  rich medicinal herbs, .and every household may roly ou Its healing aid.������  When the little one runs in from  his play with a smarting, dirt-filled  scrape on his hand or knee, simply  wash the part, and smear with Zam-  Buk, bandaging if necessary.  When father returns from work  with a cut hand, tho handy box of  Zam-Buk again meets the emergency,  and the housewife or mother continually finds it a real friend lu need for  bruises of general household duties.  For eczema, uleer������, Itch, fistulas, ab-  cohhos, scalp sores,, and all skin  diseases, it acts like a charm. It eases  the pain and stops the bleeding of  piles and cures this painful ailment  quickly and surely. All druggists' and  stores sell at 50c a box, or from Zam-  Buk Co., Toronto, for price, six boxes  for $2.50.  Dust on tht Ocean.  To talk of a "dusty" ocean highway st/unda absurd, but tho expression ia perfectly accurate.  Every one  who is famUiar with ships knows Umt,  no matter how earofully tho docks may  bo washed in tho morning, a gront  quantity of dust will collect by nightfall.   You   say,   "But   tha modern  stoamnhip, burning hundreds of tons  ot coal a day, easily accounts for such  *, deposit."   True, but tho records o!  sailing vossels show that tho latter  collect moro dust than a steamer.  On  s reoent voyage of a sailing vessel���������  a journey which lasted ninoty-sovcn  days-twenty-ioor barroli of dust wore  swept from U������e decks.   The captain  was a roan of scientific tastes, and  made careful observations, but could  not solve the mystery.      Some, no  doubt, comes from the wear and tear  on the sails and rigging, but that  accounts tor only a smoU portion.

Unless recovering from  typhoid (when one could give a raven-  ou8 wolf odds ln hunger) most patients  soon And it hard to eat the proper  amount of food required for the speedy  building up of strength. Therefore lt is  essential to give them dainty, tempting  meals. Even those ordinarily the least  squeamish will refuse to eat If the service is uninviting.  In preparing a convalescent's meals,  many things must be considered. What  and when he eats is no more important  than to have every article absolutely  well cooked and served,  Invalids' diet has now become a matter of science; every hospital has Its diet  kitchen, nurses are carefully trained to  prepare nourishing dishes to tempt the  jaded appetite, while there are delicatessens where cooking for the sick is  made a specialty.  It haB also been learned that the convalescent must eat oftenor thnn the por-  son in health, because he can eat less at  a time. ,  Thus the when and what as regards  an invalid's, meals is fairly easy; tho  question of proper service ls more difficult,  Unless one has extraordinary equipments for illness, It is no easy matter to servo a meal in a sick room  with all tho food nt Just the right  point of heat or cold*���������especially the  former. Usually the distance from the  kitchen Is considerable; there Is moro  or less delay in gotting the tray  ready, and one article gets cold or  elio driod up while others are bolng  i prepared,  Fortunately, modern Ingenuity has  recently solved this problem very satisfactorily In plates that oan bo kept  warm Indennftoly by means of hot  water. , A    .  Theso consist of a dinner or soup  platf ������et In  a hollow  tin or nickel-  Cm9mS//y *s/ippecf  //7/0   Ji/<9CC  plated vessel, with a small ...be at  one side, through which boiling water  is poured. The china plate is held by  a rim, and tho tube is supplied with a  tight screw, so there Is no possibility  of slipping or leaking. Some of these  havo tin covers for further protection.  With such a contrivance lt Is easy  to keep food warm a long time, Better  yet, It may bo kept fresh and moist, as  Is so hard to do when It lo allowed  to stand on the back of a stove or  In the oven.  Nor are these dishes ugly affairs to  offend tho dainty taste or the patient.  Tho china Is olthor of tho deep blue  onion pattern or In a rich dark red,  while the motal is bo arranged underneath as to be quite inconspicuous.  So recognised Is tho usefulness of  theso plateB that they are largely used  In hospitals, as well as by Individuals,  , A chop plate heated In the same way  Is also aeon, and Is found by many  very convenient for dally uso. Its  chief objection Is that the water  makes It too hot for a maid to carry  In serving, whllo It Is apt to soore  the tablo on which It Is sot.

Por tjiis much the people  ,of Victoria, Duncan's and Nana-*  |nio must feel pleased. Nothing  pieces    a   Vancouver   Islander  ?n.or.e't]haii to praise the   climate  ���������and 'the beauty and" ��������� richness of  hii particular . district. In fact  if the worthy Professor had had  Jiis way he would have remained  pn the Island a week longer, but  V'the urgency of engagements iu  ������he East.'' It is easy to see that  the visit opened the e)es of the  .agricultural expert.  But (and be  suie  to read  it  ���������with a big B) the doctor had one  complaint; "I am not unwilling,  that you should put me on  record as being painfully  surprised  (at the high prices asked for farm  land on Vancouver  Island.

'phis suggests one of two things,  viz;' that   either   those having  pites to sell tried to   f<pull"  the  /doctor's "leg" or that on finding  that the richness of the land wns  ,so much superior to any  thing  he had ev,er seen he  was' almost  unwilling to .acknowledge   same  ���������to ���������'himself.

W  (Continued.}  CHAPTER XXI.  HEN   Trove   woke   In   th  morning a package covef  ed with white paper lay  on   the blanket  near hifl  hand.   He rose and picked it up and  saw; his own name in a strange band-  writing on the wrapper.  He turned It,  looking curiously at seal and superscription. Tearing it open, he found to  his great surprise a brief note and a  roll of money.   "Herein is a gift for  Mr. Sidney Trove," said the note. "The  gift is from a friend unknown, who  prays God that wisdom may go with  it, so It prove a blessing to both."  Trove counted tlie money carefully.  There were $3,000 In bank bills. He  eat a moment thinking; then be rose  and began searching for tracks around  the shanty. He found none, however,  in the dead leaves which he could distinguish from those of Tunk and himself.  "It must be from my father," said  he���������a thought that troubled him deep?  ly, for it seemed to bring ill news���������  that his father would never make* him-  Belf known.  "He must have seen me last night,"  Trove went on. "He must even have  been near me���������so near he could have  touched me with his hand. If I had  only wakened!"  He put the money in his pocket and  made ready to go. He would leave at  once in quest of Darrel and take counsel of him. It was early, and he could  see the flrst light of the sun high in  the tall towers of hemlock. The forest  rang with bird songs. He went to the  .brook-near-by-and-drank-of-its-elearr-  cold water and bathed in it. Then he  walked slowly to Robin's Inn, where  Mrs. Vaughn had begun building a  fire. She observed the troubled look  In his face, but said nothing of it then.  Trove greeted her and went to the  stable to feed his mare.  Then he went in to breakfast. An  hour later he bade them all goodby  and set out for Allen's. A new fear  began to weigh upon him as he travel*  ed. Was this a part of that evil sum,  and had his father begun now to scatter what he had never any right to  touch? Whoever brought him that  big roll of money had robbed him of  his peace. Even his ribs, against  which it chafed as he rode along, began to feel sore. Home at last, he put  up the mare and went to tell his moth*  er that be must be off for Hillsborough.  "My son," said she, her arms about  his neck, "our eyes are growing dim  und for a long .time have seen little  of you."  "And I feel the loss," Trove answer*  ed. "I have things to do there and  shall return tonight."  "You look troubled," was her answer. "Poor boy! I pray God to keep  you unspotted of tbo world." Sbe was  ever fearing unhappy news of the mystery��������� that something evil would come  out of it.  As Trovo rodo away ho took account  of all he owod thoso good people who  Iind been mother and father to him.  What a pleasure it would give blm to  lay that goodly aum ln the lap of bla  mother and bid her spend it with no  thought of economy.  Tho mnre knew him aa one may  know a brother. Thero was in ber  manner some subtlo understanding of  bla mood. Her master saw It in tho  polso of hor head, in tho shift of hor  ears and in hor tender way of feeling  for hit band. Sbo, too, was looking  right and left in tho fields, Thero wero  tbe scones of a boyhood nowly but forever gone. "That's where you overtook  mo on the way to school," aald be to  Phyllis, for io the tinker bad named  bor.  Sbo drew nt tho rein, starting playfully as sho hoard his voice and shaking hit hand as if to aay: "Oh, master,  Him mu the ili'm. I will l/uu ,>������.. oi.ITI.-  }y to happlaom."

"Canst tbou make  ��������� Jest boy-a merry Jest?"  "Not until yoo have told mo wbst'a  tbe matted"  . "Illness, an* UH^food o' bitter fancy.*  saia tne tinker, witn a saa race.  "Bitter fancy?"  "Yes, an' o* thee, boy.

"Have you seeu my father?"  "Yes."  There was a moment of silence, and  Trove began to change color.  "And what did he say?"  "That he will bear his burden alone."  Tben for a moment silence and the  ticking of the clocks.  "And I shall never know my father?"  6aid Trove presently, his lips trembling. "God, sir, I Insist upon it! I  bave a right to his name and to his  shame also." The young mail sank  upon a chair, covering his face.  "Nay, boy, it is uot wise," said Darrel tenderly. "Take thought of It.  Thou'rt young. The time is near when  thy father can make restitution, aye,  an' acknowledge his sin before the  world. All very near to him, saving  thyself, are dead. Now, whatever  comes, it can do thee ho harm."  "But I carte not for disgrace, and often you have told me that I should live  and speak the truth, even though it  burn me to''the bone."  "So have I, boy, so have I. But suppose it burn others to the bone. It  will burn thy wife an* thy children an'  ' thy children's children and them that  have reared thee, an' it would burn  thy father most of all."  LTEom^asjuiteiri  ther was bent on keeping his own disgrace. .1*  "Mind thee, boy, the law o* truth ls  great, but the law o' love is greater.  A lie for the sake o' love���������think o" that  "Nay, boy, it ia not ictse."  a long time, think until tby heart Is  worn wltb all fondness an' tby soul Is  ready for Its God, then judge It."  "But when he makes confession I  shall know and go to him aud stand by  bis side," tbo young man remarked.  "Nay, boy, rid thy mind o' that. If  yo were to bear of his crime yo'd never  know It was thy father's."  "It Is a bitter sorrow, but I shall  mako tbo best of It," said Trovo,  "Aye, mako tbe best of it Thou'rt  now In tbo deep sea, aa' Ood guide  thee."  "But I ask your help. Will you read  tbat?" said Trovo, banding blm the  mysterious note that camo with tho  roll if money,  "An' how much came with It?" laid  Darrel as bo road tho lines.  "Three thousand dollars. Here they  are. I do not know wbat to do with  them.*'  " 'Tis a large sum, an' maybe from  tby father," said Darrel, looking down  at tbe money, "Possibly, quite possibly, it Is from thy father."  "And what shall i do with tho uiou-  ey? It la cursed. I can make so uso  of it."  "Ah, boy, of one thing he sure. It Is  not tho stolen money. For many yoars  tby father hath been a frugal man,  savlDg, over saving, tbo poor fruit of  his toll, Kay, boy, If It como o' tby  father, have no fear o' tbat For ft  timo pot thy money in tho baok."  "Then my father lives near mo, where  I may be meeting him every day?"  "No." aald Darrel, sinking his head.

It was circus day,  and there were few in the street. Neither looking to the right nor left he  hurried to the bank of Hillsborough  and left his money. Then, mounting  his mare, he turned to the wooded hilla  and went away at a, swift gallop.  When the village lay far behind them  and tiie sun was low he drew rein to  let the mare breathe aud turned, looking down the long stairway of hills.  Presently he could hear a galloping  horse ������nd a faint halloo down the valley out of which he had just come. He  stopped, listening, and soon a man and  ?horse, the latter nearly spent with fast  travel, came up tbo pike.  "Wei!, by heaven! You gave me S  hard chase," said the man.  "Do you wish to see me?" Trove inquired. .        ���������    '   ,:  "Yes. My name is Spinnel. I am  connected with the bank of Hillsborough. Your name is Trove���������Sidney  Trove?"  "Yes sir."  "You deposited $3,000 today?"  "I did."  "Well, I've come to see you and ask  a few questions. I've no authority,  and you can do as you like about answering."  The man pulled up near Trove and  took a notebook and pencil out of his  pocket  "First bow came you by that money?" said he, with some show of excitement in his manner.  "That is my business," said Trove  coolly.  "There's more or less truth In that,"  said the other. "But I'll explain. Night  before last the bank in Milldam was  robbed and the clerk, who slept there,  badly hurt. Now, I've suo doubt you're  all right, but here's a curious fact���������the  sum taken was about $3,000."  Trove began to change color. He dismounted, looking up at the stranger  and holding both horses by the bit.  "And they think me a thief?" he demanded.  "No," was the quick reply. "They've  no doubt you can explain everything."  "I'll telf you all I know about the  money," said Trove. "But come, let's  keep the horses warm."  They led them, and, walking slowly,  Trove told of his night in the sugar  bush. Something in the manner of  Spinnel slowed his feet and words.  The story was finished. They stopped,  turning face to face.  "It's grossly improbable," Trove suggested thoughtfully.  "Well, it ain't the kind o' thing tbat  happens every day or two," said the  other. "If you're innocent, you won't  mind my looking you over a little to  sera if you have wounds or weapons.  Understand, I've no authority, but if  you wish, I'll do it."  "Glad to have you. Here's a hunting knife and a Hint and some bird  shot" Trovo answered as he begau to  empty his pockets.  Spinnel examined the hunting knife  and looked carefully at each pocket.  "Would you mind taking off your  coat?" ho Inquired.  The young man removed bis coat,  uncoverlug a small spatter of blood on  a shirt sleeve.  "There's no use going any further  with this," said tbe young man impatiently, "Come on bome with me,  and I'll go back with you in tbe morning and prove my Innocence."  Tbe two mounted tbelr horses and  rode a long way in silence.  "It is possible," said Trovo presently,  "that tho robber was a man tbat knew  mo aud, being close pressed, planned  to divert suspicion."

Marion was about as noisy a little  girl as ever filled a household with  mingled joy and despair. But there  were times when she simply had to be  suppressed. One of these came when  her father was suddenly stricken with  pneumonia. Taking her to one Bide,  Marion's mother carefully explained  to he* how very 11) her father was and  how accessary lt was that he should  not be disturbed by the least sound.  Marion listened thoughtfully. What  was passing through her small mind  her mother could not Imagine, At  length the child asked:  "Is papa just as sick as you were.  mamma?"    -  Forced to smile despite herself, the  mother answered, "Yes. dearie."  "And will he, too, have a nurse?"  "Yes, dearie, yes."  Probably with a vivid remembrance  oi* her mother's illness, Marlon heaved  a deep sigh aud said: "Very well, mamma. I suppose I shall have to be  good."  And she was good���������so unnaturally  good that her mother was almost led  u- believe that the child, too. was coming down with a severe illness. Day  after day she went about with a serious air, and never once did sbe attempt  to romp or frolic.  At length her father was so far recovered that Marion was permitted to  go in and see him. Putting his arm  about her as she stood by his bedside,  the sick man said:  "My little daughter has been very  considerate of her father during his  illness, and I am very proud of her."  "Yes, papa," agreed Marion gravely. :  "I haven't heard her make a sound."  "No, papa."   ,  "And mamma says that she has been  a very good girl Indeed."  "Yes, papa." again said Marion.  "And now," she added eagerly, "won't  you please let me see it?"  "See it!" repeated the astonished father.   "See what, child?"  "Why. tlie new baby, papa."���������'New  York Press.

The visit of the Dowager Empress  of Eussia to England is a trial to  everyone's nerves. The despatches  have .given some idea of the anxiety  that is imposed on Scotland Yard,:  but it is only of late that one has  learned of the extent to which tho  Empress is watched by Russian  agents.  The Dowager Empress takes great  interest in the sick and poor, and in  pursuance of her charitable leanings  ahe visited several hospitals. 8o  rigid was the surveillance maintained  by the Bussian secret police in London that they even insisted on examining the roster of the patients, in  order to be sure that a disguised Anarchist had not obtained admission  for the purpose of attacking her Majesty.  Many Measures.  Two unsuspecting foreigners, who  could speak no English, and who  were so unfortunate as to lose their  way in the vicinity of Buckingham  Palace, were arrested and quietly deported. The Russian Government  even stationed its own agents at Harwich, Dover, Folkestone and Southampton, to inspect all foreigners entering Great Britain during her Majesty's visit.  Her route by rail from Dover to  London was patrolled; the train by  which she arrived in London wa* run  into a Afferent part of the depot from  the usual one for arrivals; an J pbe  traveled across Europe in the Czar's  bombproof train.  Armor-Plated Train.  The train consists of nine cars,  heavily protected by armor-plate,  and with very small windows, to  lessen the risk of bullets reaching the  interior. The cars are splendidly  furnished and are decorated outsid*  with the imperial eagle emblazoned  in gold. Forty attendants travel with  the train and guard it day and night.  While the Dowager Empress is in  Fngland the train remains at Calais,  awaiting her return to take her safely  back again to St. Petersburg.  VOLCANO AGAIN ACTIVE.  Flaming   Mountain   In   the   Aleutian  Archipelago.  According to advices just received afc  Victoria, B. C, the volcano on Aku-  tan Island of the Aleutian archipel-  -agor-off-the���������A lask an-peninsula,- afters-  several years of inactivity is again in  eruption. J. E. Thwaites, mail clerk  on the steamship Dora, running from  Unalaska to Vadez, sends a brief but  vivid description of the eruption,  which occurred or was observed on  Feb. 22, and was accompanied by  earthquake shocks. He says:  A Magnificent Spectacle.  "As the Dora passed the island the  volcano presented a magnificent spectacle. The conditions for witnessing  tho awe-inspiring sight were perfect.  It was two o'clock in the morning^  Behring Sea was as smooth as glasa  and the night wa* inky black. Suddenly as the ship rounded a bold, high  headland the beautiful sight burst into view. Although it "was, two a, m.  all sleeping officers and passengers  were awakened and crowded the deck,  where they remained for hours watching the awe-inspiring phenomenon.  "The amount of flame visible waa  not constant, there seeming to be a  maximum and minimum stage, each  occurring about every 12 minutes.  Shortly before this occurrence Unalaska, but a few m(leB distant, ��������� waa  shaken by an earthquake of great intensity,  No Damage Resulted.  "No damage of anyacoonnt resulted,  as all of the buildings are very low  and strongly built. Mount Makusbin  volcano, a few miles to the westward  of Unalaaka, has been active of late,  and it would surprise no one if on  the next trip of the Dora it woro  learned that old Mount Shishnldin,  near Unalaska, was In activity.  "Mount Akutan volcano has been  inactive for several years and the recent violent eruption has created consternation among the natives in that  vicinity. The natives say that every  eruption of this group of volcnnooa  means that some of the adjoining islands will sink trom sight, or that  a new islnnd will be thrown up."

People loll in cushioned Pullmana  or leisurely discuss their dessert in  the diner as the train whirls them  through the mountains, clattering  ���������cross trestle-spanned gorges, c, now  rushing along the edge of dizzy cliffs,  where the roadbed, a narrow shelf  carved in the rock, clings to the face  of a precipice.  Those travelers in luxurious high  speed trains, how many of them, aa  they gaze indolently toward the towering snow. peaks and the shadowy  depths of bthe canyons, pause tb think  of the surveyors who mapped the  road, and whose pioneer work has  made it possible to travel de luxe  through this grand scenery?  Pathfinders at Work.  To the average occupant of the parlor car the thought of camping out in  deep snow of the winter woods> would  be no less abhorrent than the idea of  crawling for hours in the broiling sun  along steep side-hills and over rock-  elides bereft of shade, one's tongue  akin to dry flannel; and water���������well,  perhaps half a mile away. But these  are commonplace event* in the life of  the railway surveyor.  Let the reader imagine that he ha*  taken conge of civilization, and that  he is one of the sun-burned, smoke-  scented, overalled crowd that constitutes a survey camp^-fifty miles up  the pack trail that winds off through  the mountains from the Very last  jumping off place on the railway.  The "Get Up" Call.  ; Early in the morning���������horribly early���������just as a faint light���������the first pale  shafts of sunrise���������is pushing up over  the big mountain across the valley,  and while yet the. stars gleam in the  frosty sky, above the black tops of  the pines, comes the reveille, an  abominable din of tinpari and stick,  harshly discordant: This melody  produced by the cookie (the chef's  assistant) means "get uift" and fifteen minutes later a similar, but  greatly modified, alarm suffices to call  the faithful to breakfast. During the  progress of the meal the daylight gets  a chance to expand^ and soon after  the last man has satisfied his hunger comes the call "All out."  Now all hands "hit the trail" for  the line, matching in single file, eyes  downcast, and ever on the alert for  the wind-fallen logs which beset the  path, and the slender branches that  fly back like whips to sting the unwary. It is a Bad procession. There  is������U_ttl������Llconyejsation. an_d_that little  generally, ahent the disposal of the  cumbersome lunch pack, of which  every, one is glad to eat his share,  and equally undesirous of packing on  his shoulders, turn about.  Perils of the Work.  Lunch finished and a pipe smoked,  arid the afternoon grind commences.  If the survey has had easy ground  that morning there are now perhiaps  some bluffs to be negotiated. They  can't be avoided by detours. For  grade must be followed, and, unlike  the wagon road, there is no flexibility  allowed. This rigid adherence to a  fixed line often places the surveyors  in most unpleasant positions, and  quite frequently it is on Bome narrow  ledge or projecting rock on the face of  a bluff that the transit man must  place his mark. This means that he  has to clamber there with his instrument, set up the tripods, squint  through the telescope, and read angles���������arid probably all this careful  adjustment whilst standing precari-  ouslv on a place that might be quite  comfortable for a mountain goat.

They were Intended to enlarge  our sphere of activities, not to diminish them.  They foster the family and make  progress possible, but we should not  abuse their protection. We have crawled away Into their still and comfortable recesses, slept In their dry, clean |  chambers, toasted ourselves over their  sheltered flres, read by their unflicker-  Ing lights and eaten from their bountiful boards so long that we are grown  pale, timid, peevish and thankless  withal.

Almost everybody knows the rule of  the masons that stone used In building should be so placed that It will lie  as It lay In Its natural bed when quarried. But Franclf W. Hoyt in the Engineering News says that this familiar  rule is not always to be depended upon  and needs in many cases to be supplemented with other precautions. There  are three planes of fracture known to  quarrymen. The rift is the direction  in which the stone splits most easily,  the grain that which is next easiest,  tlie head 'that which offers the greatest  resistance. In a paving block the two  sides represent the rift fracture, the  top and bottom the grain and the ends  the bead. But In a quarry the natural  bud Is sometimes considerably inclined  to the plane of the rift; hence the Imperfection of the ordinary rule for plac-  ihg'the'Btone'ln'buildlng.��������� '  Quite Obvious.

Every manufacturer of reliable__and_high_claae_  remedies welcomes the bill as a step,  in the right direction. The discussion  has brought out the fact that the best  physician! in Canada and nn the con*  tinent approve of and prescribe Psy-  chine in eases of tha most difficult  charsoter. In * recent instance of  very serious throat and lung trouble  the patient had been using Piyohine.  Two leading United States specialists  were consulted, in -addition to two  eminent Canadian physicians. Upon  learning what the patient waa using,  a sample of Psyehine was taken and  anslysed, with the result thst the  physioians advised its continuance.  They prescribed no other medioine but  Piychine, with the result that the pa������  tient has fully recovered and is a  splendid walking snd talking advertisement for the wonderful ourative  power of a remedy that will "stand  up" before the keenest professional  ofitioiim and analysis. Ai a builder  up of the system snd restorer of aU  wasted tonditions, Psyehine hu ne  equal, snd the best and moit earnest  physioians recognise this fsot.
