Post Oflice Department,in'this province is certainly  getting- notorious for his , swiftness.  This worthy official has been since last  August trying to establish a post office  here, and we <-u e no nearer now than 12  months ago. It would be a good idea  for soinu one to stick a pin'in it to see'-  if alive. When it is considered that  we have 130 prospectors and inineis ,in  this camp besides numbers in the hills,.  it is a crying shame that this has not  been attended to long since.  Col. Peyton and Lane Gilliam ai rived  here on 21sl<inst. The3T are inspecting  the Duncan and Lardeau mineral properties which were bonded some months  ago by the former.. t  Mr. R. K.

He  has just arrived ftoru a trip up   Gainer,  Creek and is very  much pleased, with  appearances so far.  Hugh'' Brown, of^ the  Union  Hotel,  Revelstoke, paid ns a   flying ' visit  to-'  i''day.   After visiting his mineral   property ou Five-Mile creek   he left again  for Nakusp and Slocan country.

His  pioperty still keeps improving and he  is prepared to make a shipment a.s  soon as Gainer'Creel? trail is finished.

SUPPOSED    DROWNING  In the River at   Ulecillewaet-���������Notes  of the Camp.     '        "   '  Rapid Tunneling Machine.  L. Recard, of California, has invented a rapid tunneling machine which  will saw out a tunnel at a rate of 23  feet daily. , The machine is 12 feci  long, six feet high and four ,feet'wide,  and is run Iry a 14 horsepower engine,'  the 'total weight being (i,3()0. "The  principle is tliat of a circular saw, 00  drill points attached to each, of two  wheels, four feet high and eight inches  in diameter make (500 ' devolutions per  minute; each point one-half an inch  apart, every revolution feeding ' one-  eighth of an inch. The inventor says'  it will put 20 feet of a 6xS tunnel in a  day in the hardest rock at a cost ol* $1  per foot. ;Tlie machine costs $1,000  and requires three men to run it. The  rock is crushed as fin** as wheat grains,  carried to the rear and dumped in a  car. The drill points weigh one-quarter  of a pound each, last four days and are  kept cool by a, steady stream of water.  ���������Norlhiccst jMniiifi Review.  , - SANDON HEARD FROM.

A native ."plnyfiihifi'ss" generated  by bad whiskey and worse' beer caused  considerable commotion in Front  Street on Wednesday afternoon, and  resulted in seriously injuring a Chinaman and sending a young man " over  the road." In the preliminary hearing  yesterday there were a number of  witnesses called, some of. whom were  suffering from a pitiful loss of memory,  while others were equally afflicted  with too vivid imaginations. The facts  appeal to be that Win. Doyle and  Thos. Pope came to town and proceeded to "tank up" and meeting a Chinaman named Jlong they thought it  would be a good joke to " Dutch flip"  him, which they did. Hong went  away and was letnrning \yiLh a saw in  his liand when the row " was resumed,  Hong defending himself with Ih'i saw.  During the finca*- Doyle threw several  stones at ITong, inflicting some severe  bruises and also breaking the Chinaman's arm at the elbow-joint. Thos.  Cadman went to ai rest Doyle and was  roughly handled by him. There wa.i  therefore, two counts against him.  Pope was discharged and Doyle committed. ' He elected- to' be tried by  speedy trials and came up before 11 i.s  Honor Judge Cornwall to-day. He  pleaded guilty and was sentenced to  two years' imprisonment.  ...   i������, , i,  U miuy.:  --.N.SIJ  Ki.K;:  The County Court.

('.'i-.-'inl nt ul was  heard in cli.nniier.-.  Sandon. July 25.���������Sandon is situated on Carpenter Creek at the .forks  of Cody and Sandon Creeks about,four  miles above .Three ��������� Forks. It' is tlie  objective , point of. the Nakusp it  Slocan rail road to be built this season,  and of the ��������� Kaslo it������ Slocan railroad  which is already graded into the town,  and which will be completed about  the latter part of September. Nearly  all of the ore-shipping'mines of, the  famous Slocan country are in tlie immediate vicinity and will ship ore from  here this i winter. There are three  hotels running, with ' another - near  completion, four stores; one barbershop, one laundry, and in fact we already have a good sized town. But  there wilFbe room for every trade and'  calling here- before loiig as there is sure,  to be another boom this fall that will  discount Rossiand.  Mi: David,. Hastie, late of the  Kaslo-Slocan engineering staff, has decided to locate in Sandon.  The Hotel Sandon, Messrs. Moore  it Wrong proprietors, opens about the  first of August. This is, at present,  the finest building in Sandon aiid is  sure to do a good business. Mr.  Moore, a well-known caterer .from the  coast, will attend to the cuisine, Mr.  Wrong having charge of the bar. We  wish them every success.  The Byron ifc White Mining Co.  intend next week breaking ground for  ii concentrator plant at their mine,  the famous Slocan Star, about a mile  from Sandon. This mine is shipping  ore every day, the well-known Mann  Bros, having the hauling contract.  Tlie time check nuisance still exists  in the country and of course the poor  working man has to stand all the  brunt. Tf wages were good it would  not be so bad, but with them lower  than ever beforo it is a burden the  men will bear only to visit their  vengeance upon the responsible pai ties  in the future.  The Tvanhoe mine started last week  with a full complement of men. The  same company next week will  start to run another ,700 foot tunnel.  1 visited the Goodenougli mine last  week and saw some ore sacked that  ran G000 oz. to tlie ton. Their lowest  pay is about 800 oz. ��������� This mine, now  is working a small force but as soon as  snow comes they will work a complete  outfit and enlarge their bank account.  Charlie Kent, well known to/old-  timers at l^arwell is one of the owners.  The Grey Copper is being opened  up and looks fine, It will be another  mine to swell its owner's bank account  this winter.  The Noble Five is shipping ore, the  Alacdonakl Bros, having- tlie packing  and hauling contract.  Poker Smith and Tiish Mike are  developing property that i.s looking  way up. It is situate on Cody Creek.  The waggon road from Three Forks  to here, and further up is in a disgraceful shape, all assertions of government  officials to the contrary notwithstanding-  SANDON   WANTS  A Newspaper.

Parties have been 'oiit S"tirchiiig, lint  no other trace of him has! been found,  and it is helie.vod that he was drowin-d  i'n the Ulecillewaet. If so, it will "be  difficult to find the body, as thc river  rims with such foi s.e that it' will soon  reach the Coluhilii.-i..

Conservatives Have a Clear Majority.  The elections in Great Britain have  resulted in the return of the Conservatives and Liberal unionists by the  largest majority in the memory of' the  present generation. iThe. new Parliament will be made up as follows : Conservatives, 3-11 ; Liberal Unionists, 70 ;  Liberals 171; McGartyit.es, 70 ; Parnell-  ites, 13; Labor, 2 ; one constituency If)  be heard from. This gives the conservatives a clear majority of 12 overall parties, the Liberal Unionists included. " ���������  - THE COUNTRY IS FULL OF IT.  New  Ore  Discoveries  to North and  South of Revelstoke.       '   ���������  Recent discoveries in the Revelstoke  division of West- Kootenay seem to  confirm the impression that, the whole  country is thoroughly impregnated  with mineral. A couple of weeks ago  the lind on North Fork' of the Ulecillewaet was chronicled. An assay oi  this ore gives $3 to .$10 in gold, aud  from SO to several hundred ounces in  silver. The bed of the creek is iepoi-t,-  ed lo be full of float of high grade ore.  Those interested aie now agitating for  a trail to the head of the North Fork,  which would also serve a number of  old locations, such as the Jumbo,  Wiliah*, Bob O'Link, North Star. &c.  A more recent discovery is one which  has ju.st been made on a trihntarv of  the Jordan rivei- which flows out of the  Gold Range just above Rovol-.-i.oke.  This is a territory which has been little  frequented by tho. prospector heretofore. Messrs. Frisby it Reighly had  considerable success trapping up there  last winter and lvLurnod' this summer  fo prospect for mineral. They caiue  back fo town last. Salurday having  located two claims on Wild Goose  creek. Thoir samples show the oie to  Ik; galena which looks as .though il.  might cany gold. There being no  nsMiyr here at present the sample.-,  wero sent to Vancouver fur a test, and  until the lesull is obtained the value  of tbe new find will net be known. L:i  the meantime several parties have  started out to prospect lho vicinity of  the new locations, whore it. is reported  many ledges exist.  Ore has also been discovered helow  Hall's Landing across the lake from  Halcyon Hot Springs in the vicinity of  Cape Home, Upper Arro.y lake, whore  it is said they have found a "whole  mountain of it." V  THE   KOOTEXAY   MAIL.  A NOBLE SACRIFICE,  CHAPTER XIV.  There was a long silence in the room.  Mr.   InglelV/d   was   strangely   stirred,  and he said, presently, in a husky v6ice:  ��������� " I  am  5-lad,  Basil,   I   chanced  upon  you." ���������      ,        ,   ' ���������"  ���������' I am-fflad, too," -said Basil Penrhyn.  "I hope 1 have not wearied you."  " On ' tlie contrary, you have deeply  interested me ; more deeply than I can  express."  "What I have just related," said  Basil Penrhyn, " is but one out of a  hundred instances in which lie stories  as pregnant. Richard, you and I rare  - both English tyorn; and there is something that has come to me from Ens-  land every year the last three years,  which lias taken a powerful hold upon  me. 1 wish, indeed, it were in my  power to satisfy the cravings of the  little maid who writes within a short  time of every Christmas to Santa  Claus. This year's letter 'has ' just  reached me, and it-is strangely touching. 1 havs placed it in a, packet with  the others I have receiyed from ,,her.  They are,  in all. three."  lie rose and, took from a'pigeon hole  the packet of letters 'to which he re-  ' ferred. ,  " What has perplexed and caused me  real annoyance is that the child has  ' r.ol afforded me an opportunity of communicating' with .her. She believes,  as thousands of other children'do,' hr  the omniscience of Santa Claus, and  she put? no address in her missives.  'All I know is that they come from  London, ���������which I gather, of course,  ���������from the postmarks on the envelopes.  I have traced the letters li. C. in these  postmarks, which proves that she lives  in a poor,district. The office in which  yju conducted your business in Corn-  , hill cannot be very' far from her residence, and 1 dare say, Richard, that  you are more.familiar than I with life  in the East End. So interested have  ' I become in this little maid's letters,  that I have gone,(to the trouble of putting an advarli'sement in a London  daily pa per,'in which 1 ask her to send  Santa Clans her address. Here among  her letters is the advertisement itself,  which 1 cut out o'f the London newspaper.      I will read it.      'If Carrie Wy-  att'" ���������  . '    " Stop,   for  Heaven's   .sake,    stop !  cried  Mr.   Ingletield'.   "What name do  ycu say 1"       ,'     "  "I am reading from my advertise-  'ir.������nt. Richard,", said Basil Penrhyn,  surprised at this interruption. "'It  Carrie Wyatt, who has written to Santa Claus in America for three years in  succession, will forward her address,  she will 're-colvo a reply which Santa  Claus promises shall be pleasant to her."  The advertisement has not, been,, answered, Richard. No address has been  'sent to Santa Claus, and I suppose  neither' thc little maid nor any of her,  people has happened to-see.it. Certainly if is out of my power to comply  , with the one-most earnest wish of my  child-correspondent, buti I have no  doubt 1 could convey pleasure to her  innocent, heart in another way, for ������h.'  ������and her parents must be very noor.  Poor as they are. however, they seem  to be doing good in' the neighborhood  in which they reside, and 1 have almost a mind, when my Christinas labors are over, to pay a visit to England  and renew acquaintance with familiar  , scenes aud at the same time endeavor to,.find where Carrie "Wyatt lives.  I, dare'say 1 should be successful, flnd  1 am su:-��������� that 1 should derive a pur������  and sweet pleasure from association  with her and her parents.

H'>r  parents must be gentlefolk, in spire of  circumstances, and are giving the.r  children'a good education."  " T'.-.ey have more than this u.ii;,  then ?" asked  Mr.   Inglefield.

"You spoke of one of the girl's mo-st,  earnest wishes, but you did not, convey what it was."  "It is in connection with her grandfather, whom it appears she has nf-v -r  seen.

'' A bright fire was blazing in Mr. ln-  giefield's bedroom. A table was drawn  close to the,fire .place, and there >vere  lighted candles on it,'and glassis and  a bottle of claret, with lemons, nutmegs and sugar. A kettle of' boiling  water was on the hob.  My housekeeper is"a treasure," said  Basil; "she forgets nothing. Here is  everything to your hand for brewing  hot negus. Thoughtful creatine ! she  has even provided you with a nightcap ! Is the room warm enough, Richard ?" '   .  "Quite warm enough. Basil, thank  you."  "You must not mind these," said  Basil, in a gay tone, ��������� pointing around  to more toys. "There is not a room in  the house free from them. Even .the  mantel-shelves are invaded and taken  possession of by Santa, Claus. If you  wake up in the middle of the night  and see the moonlight shining on wooden houses and effigies of Father Christmas, do' not be startled. To an imaginative man this habitation would be  a rare creator. You'are sure you are  quite comfortable ?"  "Quite, Basil."  .   "Then1,  good' night,  dear friend."  Basil noticed, ,as'he left the room,  that Mr.Inglefield's eyes were fixed  upon the letters in his hand, and that  his  lips wevc   tuivering.   *  CHAPTFR XV.  "Tf the work I am doing can touch  the heart of a thief !" These words,  which Basil had uttered, dwelt in Mr.  Inglefield's ears,-aiid now that.he was  alone he seemed to hear them again���������  as though, indeed, they were spoken  aloud by an invisible spirit. What kind  of heart was that which beat, within  his breast, if he failed to be touched by  the tender and benevolent labors to  which Basil Penrhyn had consecrated  his  life ?.'  Since his manhood he had been blind,  wilfully blind, to the sweetest and  holiest truths of mortal and "immortal  life, and only; on this night had his  eyes been opened. He could no longer  be blind to them, and in the revelation  he' saw a 'trUe image of himself, and  he shuddered and cowered, as he���������would  have done in the presence of an accusing ghost,  , Of, what good had his life been .7  Had it brought happiness to him and  to those who were nearest, a'nd*sliouid  have, been dearest, to, him ? Setting  himself and these aside', had it brought  an hour's comfort to any person in  all the wide world ? Not to one human  being had it done this. It had been  proritless to strangers, and it had been  productive of nothing but misery to  those whom he .should have loved and  cherished.  A wasted hfe indeed ! Even the inanimate! toys, upon which he gazed seemed to accuse lum. Those pieces of common wood were messengers or joy, and  won hi" bring glad light into children's  eyes.  He looked at the let.ters he' held in  his hand, and thought of the child who  hail written them, His own grandchild:  He was sure or! that The child of his  daughter Rachel, whom he had driven  from his hoir!^ with a blow and a curse.

The Tlfjer .Slnrllcil at Ills Worit���������I������aiHlns  Ulirii. Il������e I.lsltt Is Tiiriicil ,On. Ho  All"* lire "������������������.mrliniHii to Tnltc a l>e;i(I-  Ij Aim.  Electricity has now been applied to  tiner-huutiug, aud the sportsman in the  Indian jungle before he pulls the trigger  ot his gun touches a button which throwp  a flood of light ou-hia prev. This ni.iy.rob  tiger-hunting of much of its romance, but  it is effective, and thus far several'large,  well-developed tigers have been,gathered  in aa a re=uit of the clever arrangement.  It has been found almost impossible to  draw tigers into tho open during the day  near thickly settled parts of India. Hut  at nrgtit this' is easily accomplished by  placing a dead carcass in' some convenient  place, where the hunter may lie hidden in  ambush. But after the tiger his scented  the blood of the dead animal and has  begun to tear the carcass, it is dhlicult for  the hunter to take aim without seeing  him.     '  This lias now been obviated' by haugiug  an electric hgiit  DIltKCTLY OVEH TIIK CARCASS.  At the instant that the light is turned ou  the tiger is so Btartled by its appearance  that he does not move. Tigers are not in  the habit of looking up and it takes several  seconds before the animal realizes where  the new strange light comes from. This  pause,'which' lie makes berore endeavoring  10 escape, is quite sufficient to enable the  spoilsman to take aim aud place a large,  aubataritial bullet in a vital part oi the  tiger's body. r  " Ad present," says' tho inventor of this  (system, " I use a battery of srx large cells,  rilled with sal ammoniac. It rs very heavy  and cumbersome, and the light only a tive-  oanille power lamp. Its recomineudaiious  are that the battery is good for the next  leu years and only wants an .occasional  filling up of the cells wilh water and sometimes a little fresh sal ari.moniac. As I can  only go shooting during six months of. the  } ear, this is a great advantage. The  method of using is aa follows 1 From .the  box containing the cells^I have a line of  wire (double of course), say of) to 40 feet  long, slipped onto each end of the box by  butterfly nuts,,the lamp, which'rs tied to a  branch of a tree immediately over,' say 20  feet high, the bait, being at the other  end.  "At about two yards from the battery  ihere is a counectron, I,think called  s A   MALE  SWITCH.  A short line of wire, about 3 'or ���������! feet  long, makes the connection to the fore eud  o!my_nlle ; at one end of this short length is  a female switch to fit ou to'the abovo male  one, and at the other end two small rings  tire ir.ade of the wires. These rings are  fastened hy two big-headed screws to the  bed of the connection. On nearing the tiger  at the kill, I aim as nearly in the direction  as lean, tlien'a light pressure of the thumb  makes the electric connection and the light  opens right over the tiger." ' ,,  ��������� This scientific sportsman also'employed  accumulators, but they did not seem to be  adapted to such rough "work. He is now  fitting himself with a battery which may  be carried in the belt like cartridges.-  Thirty su-jh batteries carried in this way  would, it is estimited, be sufficient to provide a sixteeu-candle power light,  j^^, 1  CONSCIENCE MONEY.  Large Amounts Kccclrrd by ������lie'Briltili  Chancellor or   the Exchequer.  "The Chancellor of the Exchequer acknowledges the receipt of<������ on account  of income tax, from XYZ." Such an  announcement as this is familiar enough to  most readers of tho newspapers; but. few  persons, perhaps, have any'notion as to the  'amount that is received in each year by the  Chancellor of the Exchequer from Hub  somowhat curious source, before going,  however, into auy figures in this respecti  it may be well to look back some years*  with the object" of seeing whether tho  custom em, be traced of people .adopting  the practise of unburdening their conscience in matters of taxation by means Of  the payment of conscience money into the  publrc exchequer.  Accordmg to Hone, Ci60 was carried to  the public account in the year 1789 in  consequence of the receipt of the following  note by the Chancellor of the Exchequer o1  that time:���������"Sir ��������� You will herewith receive bank notes.to the amount of ������360,  which is the property of trio nation ; and  which as an honest man, you will bs so  just as to apply to the use of.the State iu  uch-a manner that the natron may not  suffer by its having been detained from the  public treasury.

The  laconic announcement runs as ' follows :  "The Chancellor of the Exchequer ac-  kuowledget! the receipt of ������40 from some  person unknown, as conscience   mouey."  It w not until the year lSfio that the  amounts received as conscience money appears under any separate heading in the  public accouute. Since that time, however,  tho total amount received each year has  duly appeared as a separate item.

A somewhat amusing example of the  power of conscience may be cited in which  the proprietors of "Punch" aro reported, to  have received threepence in conscience  money from an ' anonymous correspondent,  who rs said to have surreptitiously read au  entire number of "Punch" from the various  pages drsplayed iu the shop front in Fleet  street. Such an instance of the unburdening of the conscience is only equaled,' perhaps, by the story tola of a fellow of  Pythagoras, who, it is related, had bought  a pair of shoes from a cobbler, for which ho  promised to pay him on a future day. Ho  .vent wilh his money on the day appointed,  hut found that lhe cobbler had iu the  interval departed this'Iife. Without saying anything of his errand, he withdrew,  secretly rejoicing at the opportunity thus  unexpectedly catlorded hiin of gaining a  pair of shoes for nothing. ' Ilia conscience,  however, says Seneca, would uot suffer him  to remain" quiet , under such an act of  injustice ; so, taking up the money, he  reiurned to the cobbler's shop, and, casting  in the money, said : ''Go thy ways ; for  though he is dead t'6 all the world, yot he  is alive to me."  BRITAIN'S NAVAL ' POWER.  .irlilcvriiirnls'orilic r.-ig-Ilsh' Navy  Down  fo lhe Time of Truruisar.  ��������� Iii Hamilton Williams', "Britain's Naval  Power" an interesting account is given, in  the second chapter, of tho fleet collected by  Richard I., which accompanied him iu  1190 to tho Crnaades���������a fleet that sailed in  eight separate lines, each line being spaced  by a trumpet-call distance from the next,  with Richard himself in the eighth line  commanding and regulating the whole-  Before reaching Palestine a most remarkable  vessel of the enemy was encountered���������a  Turkish dromon carrying "1500,men,Greek  fire in abundance, aud 200 most 'deadly  serpents for the destruction >of the Christians." Urged by Richard, the crew of his  vessel leaped overboard and succeeded in  disabling tlie enemy's rudder so that she  could not bo steered. Unable to board her  the English galleys formed in line, and, at  a given signal, hurled thoir iron beaks  together upon the huge dromon, with the  result that she sank at once, carrying down  most of her crew and drowning (we are  glad to relate) tbe 200 serpents. ,  ��������� hi tho third chapter we have well described the battle of Sluys, which occurred  in 1340 on the Flemish coast, between ,the  English and French fleets, the latter being  at anchor, and consisting of 190 vessels  wrth'no less thnn 35,000 men on hoard.  The usual fate of fleets at anchor was Buffered by'the French, notwithstanding that  they met "the dogged insuiar persistency"  of the English . with tha usual "brilliant  bravery" of their own nation. So crushing  was this defeat that tradition relates 'trial  no one of the courtiers of the French King  was bold enough to break the news to him  ���������a task finally performed by tho court  fool. , Interestrng, also, is the account of  the battle of "Ij'l'lspaanois-sur-mer." rn  1330,' with the vivid description of tho  defense of the Salle lo R01 and the other  naval exploits which gave to Edward the  Third the sobriquet of "King of lho  Sea."  The vioissiludes of the English navy are  related in the succeeding chapters, which  are illustrattd by a number of quaint old  engravings.' The story of the Armada is  well told, and with sufficient detail to be  entertaining, and finally we are brought  down to tho time of George I. and the battle  oil'Cape Passaro in 1718. Tho somewhat  doubtful episode of Jenkiu's ear, said to  haveoccurrod during the reign of George II.  is related, with an account of the war  against the Spaniards iu 1739,and Vernon's  victory at Porto Bello, on the Isthmus of  Panama, and his subsequent failures aud  disgrace We reach moro solid ground  whfn we accompany Anson on his voyages  wonderful in experience and hardships,  and to bo commended to the youthful  mariners of the present day as instances of  what " rounding tho Horn" and cruising  iu the Pacific meaut in 1740,'when 'the  Gloucester, disabled aud scurvy-stricken,  was a whole month from the day sho was  sighted from Juan Fernandez iu reaching  her anchorage at that Island.  The last three chapters' are devoted to  the wars with tho French Republic and tho  French Empire, glorious to the navy of  Great Britain, anil from which sho emerged as tho great soa-power of. the ���������. world.  The author is happy in his account of these  wars. Perhaps a proper appreciation is  wanting of the disorganized and demoralized condition of the French navy that  (resulted from the French Revolution���������a  condition to which the' French 'army  rapidly adjusted itself, Englishmen, wo  suspect, do not, as thoy should, read the  lucid writings of Jurieu de la Graviere  upon these wars. They acknowledge,  however, the individual bravery generally  shown by the French, and the losses of  English ves'iels of war, were so few and tar  between that there is no temptation to  resort to the hair-splitting so prevalent in  discussing the tonnaae, weight of guns aud  shot, nativity of crew, etc., of the IngJtes  and sloops that fought ii' lions in war with  Great Britain in IS 12. The author is  mistaken, we think, as to Nclsou's idea  being to go straight ahe.iil for Copenhagen  by tho quickest roirte. If is auggestioa was  that the Russian fleet should be attacked  first, at, Revel and destroyed before the  Enizlish fleet was weakened by the attack  upon Copenhagen.

with an overliowing liouse and a

in the nineties for nearly two hours
at Bourne's. Hall last night. ,cTh<J
local, hoards have seldom been yi-riced
with such a combination of wit, grace
and beauty, and the audience,. ht^L
night evidently appreciated tbc treat."
It is dillicuit to single out, any one
item of tho programme iia deserving ot
especial praise where ��� all excel in
excellence. Miss'Rosalind's rendition
ot the part,of Modus in Sheridan
Kiinwlcs drama, ''The Hunch Back."
shewed a most comprehensive and
finished study of a very trying and
diiliciilt character, while the argument
of pretty little Helen's eyes in "The
Art of Love " proved Ovid to be as
much uf a fool a.s he i.s .generally considered a " rake."
In the scene from "The Taming   of
thc Shrew " Miss 'Peggy   handled   tlio
classic bard with a freedom, at   which
some of our w liita   i-uflled   periwigged
ancestors would h.tve.  shuddered,   but
^succeeded in    charmin'g   her   audience
and making, the most of what   is   considered' one   of   .'.a;   most   masculine
