From    Victoria'������������������ advices it is evident that    the purchase ol..the E- &  N. Land grant is being given serious  consideration,   it s������cms to be a ques  tion of agreeing- on the price and the  means uf payment.   It will not be in  any sense, if the question of purchase  reaches an'acute stags, a party question,  but members of lhe Opposition  as well as the Government,, will vcrtc  for the purchase.   There seems to be,  we are infornicd by one of the members, a desire on the part of tlie Gov  ernment to secure .these lands if they  can be     gotten at a price considered  satisfactory,     in  order  that greater  inducements,  to settlers niay_.be given than     now obtain.   There are also great     tracts of land covered by  tho E. &  "N. holdings that have'not  been as yet    .prospected except very  superficially,,     and it is  the general  belief that with ���������government  encouragement, such as easy security of title, the building of (.trails and roads,  etc.,  that. the tract, if owned by the  government would be much, more rapidly pushed along than"it will he under  private ownership.' There  seems  little     reason to doubt but' that the  O.    I'.  R.     will build north to some,  point,      probably  Port Hardy,- in order to meet     any and all  ranges of  business between     Victoria and Van-  coiner and the cities that will, as a  result of the    'build ing .-of the Grand  Trunk, spring up.  In fact, the Canadian .Pacific, hy'  the ownership of the Island railway  hold the key to tlie whob business in  the way of quick -connection .with the  north, and places the .C. P. R- at  least on a business level.for the car-  tying on of Asiatic commerce with  any company having headquarters  at Port Simpson, and in addition  they will have within the next five  ���������years, before-' they can have any op-j  position, a complete Island service,  giving quick connection with Victor-  toria, Vancouver and other southern  parts from the north end of the Island. All of these conditions will  redound to the credit of the people:  of the Island. The purchase of the  E. & N. Railway tract is a long-  istep toward rapid development, and  mav it he brought about.  #*3>nm&0$>������\V>��������� m ���������  rfd*Ar^<fes/i/5<2;a*.lc5^?ifi2a3  SYNOPSIS -OF,.- .REG^L-A-T.1'6^--  FOR DISPOSAL _ OD jpa^ERALS  ON DOMINION LANDS IN MANITOBA THE NORTHWEST TERi  Rl TORIES  TERRITORY.  , Coal���������Coal lands may be purchased  abandoned and another obtained     on (  the-same creek, gulch or river by giving notice and paying a fee.

(By Dora Coburn, aged 10, div. 2)  "in 1592 the settlers of Canada had  hard times,  for  the  Algonquin     Indians   were always hiding  to spring  upon the settlers and scalp them.  It would not do if they built     >e  houses without a palisade. fence, , for  _   they had to live in forts.  This fort that I am alio it        1������*il  you of belonged to Monsieur    ���������   x i r-  .    cheres.    It consisted of a square )������icce  of    land     surrounded  by-a    u.������.  fence having bastions at each      '-ier  and in the centre was a largr*    io-*'*  house,  where the ammunition      was  kept.     The women and children     in  '    time of siege lived in     this blockhouse. ���������  Now Monsieur de Vcrcheres had a  daughter< named Madeleine Verchcres  who was very brave. She was only,  fourteen years of age. One dav Madeleine's father- and mother went- on  a visit, so Af.uhlcine was left in  , charge of the fort. ., ,  She had been expecting a friend for  >    a number of days whose name      was  Madame Fontaine, and no doubt: the  little girl  looked  eagerly for       her  coming.    She was down at the short  with her servant nearly every     da>  looking  for  Madame  Fontaine.    One  day  while  watching for her visitor,  she heard the report of a gun,     and  so sent Laviolette, a servant     who  was with her, to see why it had been  fired.  In a few moments he came rushing  back crying:  "Oh,   mademoiselle!   Tbe  Iroquois'  The Iroquois!"  When Madeleine heard this she rushed to the blockrhousc shouting "Aux  Amies!" which means in English,  . to arms! She ran into the blockhouse and, snatching up a gun, rushed back to one of the bastions. Upon  going back to thc block-house the  second time she discovered Cachet, a  soldier, with a match in his hand,  lighting the powder.  Dashing thc match to the. ground-,  she asked him what he meant by doing such a thing.  "It is better we should be blown  to pieces.than lie tortuied toy the Indians. "  "O, Gatchet!" she said, "do not  be a coward. Help ,me try. to save  the fort."        . ',-.,.  Thc Indians came to the fort, and  after smashing the palisade fort in  several places, - went to the field  where all the, men were working, to  scalp them.     ; ? *  v While they were away Madeleine  had plenty of time to strengthen the  fort and prepare for the attack.  When the Indians came she ~ fought  .hard and deceived-the enemy by shou  ting "All is'well!" In the middle of  the fight Madeleine's visitors came.  She' ran down to meet-her and the  Indians, thinking she was trying to  lead them into a trap, did not touch  her, so Madame Fontaine arrived  safely at: the fort.   .  Thc siege lasted seven .days     and  Madeleine took very little sleep.  At length a man managed to << escape to Montreal and told the. news  to tho governor.
