The  guides   urged   the surveyor  to return at once,  but he decided lo  make one  more effort to  find  water.  A   small   quantity   was      afterwards  round, but it  vvas so brackish that all  v.ho drank it     afterwards became in.  At daybreak the     party hailed  on a  high desert plain, where the \hcat was  intense aud there was no sign of water     in any     direction.    Recognizing  that further     attemts at exploration  were impossible,      Mohi-ud-din agreed  to abandon the journey.  This decision, however, was arrived  at too late Two of the. guides had  become insensible and they were tied  upon ridjig camels fcy thc third guide  >vho then fastened himself on another  camel, ana allowed Lhe, three anur.uis  to wander where their instincts nng(.ii  lead   llu'in.

Then  I meet me on the ship,  for I have   no  time  to see you  before sailing."   As  j tho     ship steamed down New York  [bay,  I asked:  "Why arc we going to  .Europe?" "I     want vou,"  vvas   the  answer,   '-'to   get facts in Berlin,   St.  ; Petersburg,   Paris  and   London,    and  ' write a series of art.fcles on  'The Am  erican  Commercial  Invasion oi    Europe.' "  j That year I crossed thc Atlantic  ^six times, making three round trips;  for besides thc trip to get thc material for the. "Commercial Invasion" articles, I made separate, trips  through the ' poorest country of  Erin's Isle, mostly in carts, to  write "The Depopulation, of Ireland"  and through the slumbcrland of Alfonso. XIII. to write '���������'Americans  Now Welcome in  Spain."  which   will,   upon completion,  connect Egypt with South Africa  by a line 5,700 miles in  length,  or perhaps  the longest in the. world,  unless     it may be the Siberian .mil-  way.       There has  been ' consjlerable  grcgress     made on this  longitudinal  highway.       About 1,400  miles   hav������  been built-from thc north and shorter stretches  at intervals,    some    of  which are in limited  opeiation.  All this has been brought conspicuously into public notice by there-  cent completion of the bridge over  the Zambesi, river and the passage of  the first engine across it, the general details of which have been given  in the;news columns.  ������������������ o   '"���������    -,-.

Forcimmer; Worthy  Secretary,  C. H. Rummings.  Rev. J. II.' Wh'.te, superintendent  of missions for the,Methodist church  in British Columbia, has given an ex  ample in a letter to the denominational organ, the Christiran Guardian, of Toronto, of what clergymen  in his .position can do to assist in  securing immigration to British Columbia. Writing from New Westminster, Mr.  White says:  ''Methodism  in     British  Columbia  has been greatly strengthened during  the past two or three years  by  the  coming of  many  families from Eastern Canada, and especially from Mani  toba  and   the  Northwest.    By     far  the larger number  have come to    the  Okanagan  and contiguous  valleys  in  the interior,  and  to  Chilliwack   and  other points  in the Fraser valley  at  the coast.    These portions  of       the  province are  the best known and are  the,most widely advertised.    New ar- ]  rivals   have   had   little  difficulty    in  .securing   homes   which  suited   them,  and-in many  cases  properties  purchased      only  a    short time ago have  greatly increased  in value.  The people themselves  arc  generally       well  pleased   with  thc  country,  and   have  been a great blessing to the communities in which- they have settled.  "Permit me to  call  attention       of  intending Methodist  settlers   to  several districts which are perhaps not  as. well tnown, but which offer quite  as many attractions in the way     of  climate,  soil,  and products  as     the  most favored portions of .the province;  and where the coming of a few good  families*  would  greatly  advance- our  own church and further the cause of  God.   I refer  particularly to  Saan-ich  and  Cowichan  districts,   on  Vancouver Island,  and to  Salt Spring,     a  large ' island   in  the vicinity.     These  districts have all   been.settled:sparse  ly for years;   they have churches and  schools   built   and   in  operation;    all  within  a few   miles   of Victorli; have  a daily   mail  service  by train        or  steamboat and were among the first  fields  occupied   by   our  missionaries.  The climate i.s mild, resembling,that  of the  south   of England,   being  tempered both in  summer and  winter by  the close  proximity  of  tho sea;    the  soil is  especially  adapted  to      fruit  growing,  even  peaches, grapes     and  tomatoes   doing   well,   while   apples,  pears,  prunes,   plums,  cherries      and  smaller  fruits  are produced in  great  perfection.    Dairying  is carried     on  with great  success,   several  creameries     being established, and ,the product, being of thc best.   Poultry and  sheep raising,  as well as mixed farm  ing.     always   give  splendid   results,  while the scenery is among the finest  in the world.  Settlements  have been retarded  in  various ways.

Its vast and varied natural wealth has never been as  yet thoroughly  appreciated by reason of the fact that it has never  been promiently laid  before the public.
