SATURDAY,  APRIL  15,  1005.  THE ISLAND RAILWAY.  Again it seems probable that a  change will eoon be made in the  management or lhe E. & N. Railway.  Notices have not \el been sent out  but Irom the adwinccmcnt made in  hills and agreements necessary to  safeguaid the" Luge interests imolv-  ed, il seems safe lo assume that it  will not Lc many weel s until lhc C.  I'.R. arc in possession of the Island  railway. It is not lil.cly that the  minors of thc C.P.K. Company nc-  goliat n������ for the land grantor the  coal mines are correct. It is much  more likely {hat within another 18  .months the Pro\ nice of British Columbia will conclude to male terms  with lhe, owner of lhexgraiit, and will  as it sSiould, if il is possible, lo secure- the same on any reasonable  terms, make land sales or grants fo.  settlc-is, and on mineral lands the  same as is done in other parts of the  Province.  Such a condition of thinc.s, i:  brought about, would \astly improve  prosoiii conditions now obtaining on  Vaneouvpi*- Island, and would assis.  very maleiially in bringing foi ward  thai eia of prosperity that even the  moM conservative now admit, o'r l������  lieve   to Lc  in  sight.  ENTERTAINMENTS.  Thc joining together of lea-hcis  and pupils, neighbors and associates,  lo give entertainments such as are  occasionally g>\en in Ladysmith as  in Duncan, should be encouraged in  every possible way. The young man  or young woman who begins during  school days lo declaim, talc part in  dramatics, sing or speak in public,  hud-, during ihe journey of life that  such preliminary education to what  musl lie met in ie.il life is valuable.  It is a gift well worth possessingto  be aisle lo say what yoii wish before  a thousand people with the same ease  that you would in a drawing room.  It is, in fact, nowadays, a part of  the regular education that one must.  acquire before lilted to take part in  teal life and its different conditions.  Where pleasure is round in such practise, as is thc case at such entertainments as a rule by the participants, thov aie doubly repaid ?.-r  the work they do in assisting to entertain or amuse.  iisi��������� .ii- ��������� mmmt'Jm,Jmm  THE .JCDGE'S CHARGE.

Tfepmer. a Geiman engineer, who has  resided for many years in I?ra7.il,  whi'ic he ' possesses several mines.  Heioie cutting the stone it weighed  12,)0 carats, but a daw caused the  .-Ic.uige oi a pine weighing 100 carats. That cut from the larger piece  weighs 'l!'8 carats, is two inches in  length and one inch and a half wide-  The owner values the stone at 3M0,-  (i0() crowns.  TALE  OP     ORANGE      ULORSOM.  The wearing ol orange bio soms al  a wedding is accounted for in vario*i������  wa\s. Among) other stories is thc  poj ular legend from Spain. An African king presented a Spanish Ling  with a magnificent orange tie?,  wln.se creamy, waxy blossoms and  wo.-.derful fraprance excikd the admiration of trie whole court. Many  ' egged in vain for a branch of the  dait, and a foreign ambassador was  tormented by the desire lo intreduce  ,o great a curiosity to hi* native  'and. He used every possil le means  o accomplish his purprse, but all  *us efforts ccining to naught he gave  up in despair.  The fair daughter oi the court gar-  'ener was loved by a yen iu. art san,  .ul she lacked thc dowry which the  iiu-i'ly     considered     necessary  i< r  a  rule.' One day, chancing to brra'c off  i s ray of orange blossom, the g.u-  lener thoughtlessly ga've it to bi*-  laiighter. Seeing the cowled pii?c  ;n tlie girl's hair the wily ambassador offered her a sum sufficient for  th.- dowry, ' provided .she gave him ;i  blanch and said nothing about it  liei- marriage was soon i:clr'ori.t.:d,  and, on 'her way to the altai, in  gi.itcful lemciivbiance of the so/rce  oi :i|l her happiH-FS .she. secretly  bio'e off aiiotl-ei bit of the lucky  tree to adorn her hair.  Whether thc poor court gaidener  lost his brad in coiisec-u.'iscc of his  daughter's treachery the legend docs  not ielate, but many lands now  know the wonderful trie, and ever  sin:c that wedding day orange blossom has been considered a Citing  adornment  for a bride     ���������  STRRH.I7.RJ>  VEGETABLES  Some    New York capitalists and a  Pitlsehl,    >ias-s.,    man,     siys    the  Springfield     Republican,    are cxperi-  'nc.tina in    sterilizing vegetables for  -market.

Corn, peas, beans, lima bea> s, and  other gai'.kn proeluct tiealed by the  new process will take on a withered  form, much like cured hay, but when  put in cohl water will resume their  shape ami retain their former bril-  lleness and garden flavor. Cabbage,  potatoes, beets, celery, and other  produce granulated, treated by sterilization, have the same freshness and  taste as when gathered'in gardens by  their reproduction in water, aftcr  monlhs or preservation after steiili-  ���������/ation. Eggs can bc sterilized, but  oi" course do not take tiicir form as  when broken from the shell, but are  valuable for cooking purposes. 'The  men interested in this discovery say  that sterilization of vegetables reduces their bulk, mal-rs" the charges  for handling and transport at ion but  a small item, and that the value of  the discovery lies in being aVle to  serve fresh vegetables at places a  long distr.nc-e from truck farms and  n-ardens al any time of the year.
