Less than four years ago Rossland's  now famous ledges went begging for  capital, and, without doubt, in much  less time than that the Bend will he  shipping ore.,  The Carnes Creek group of six claims  is showing up very large bodies of arsenical iron ore ;is ' development progresses. ' A crosscut on' the Salisbury  shows 40 feet of ore,' while a crosscut  on the Aberdeen gives a width of six  feet of nearly solid aisenical iron. A  parallel ledge on the Hardpan, below  "the main ledge'shows up-a six foot  ledge about 3+ inches of which is solid  arsenical iron. ,The latest assays on  the Salisbury give $li in gold; the  Rosebery $12, while the Aberdeen runs  about'$20 to the ton. It is believed  this ore can be treatedenn the eround,  by the cyanide process, at a cost of $2.50  per ton.  About ten miles from this group of  claims another,large ledge of the same  character of ore has been discovered,  during the past week, and traced for  some two or thiee miles: W. A. Mcintosh brought in ' some samples oft'  the new ledge and they have been sent  away for assaying. '*'  R. HOWSON,  REVELSTOKE.    '"  W.

The old trail was/struck' just  below Downie Creek and was followed  to within ten or. fifteen mile's of Shuswap Lake. They report'this trail to  be iii an excellent state of preservation,'  and. sav'that even after all these years  it will compare favorably with any  trail in the province.

T.

An examination showed that'the ball had   passed  clear through the, arm above tlie elbow.

Trout Lake City, Aug. ,22.���������That  the district of tho Lardeau surrounding Trout Lake is rich in mineral is  now conceded by everyone at all  familiar with its great deposits of'gold  and silver ore, and,' since the completion of a wagon road from the  "North-east Arm to Trout Lake City  has paved the way for=the shipment of  ore at a reasonable cost,'the district ;is  receiving considerable attention from  parties looking for investments.  New locations are being made daily,  but there is a great drawback to prospectors on the Duncan slope. Although the Trout Lake division has -a  recorder here, claims located on the  Duncan slope have to beL recorded - at'  Kaslo, as all tlie Duncan river region  is in the Ainsworth district. . 'A  change should be made in the ' boundaries of the. mining divisions by the  Minister of Mines, and that portion of  the Upper Duncan river above Hall  Creek should be annexed to the Trout  Lake division. Prospectors at present  have to travel or send by mail hundreds of miles via Arrow lakes and  Nelson to Kaslo,' to -transact their  business.- While from these locations  the Recorder's ofiico at Trout Lake  can be reached by one day's travel, in  nearly every case. Representations,  have already been made to the  -Minister of Mines and it is hoped will  receive proper attention.  The Wagner group and C.P.R.  claims on^Hcaly creek havel had considerable work done on them this  season and are showing up ' large  bodies of valuable ore.  The Badshot has made a reputation  this year, for high grade ore and plenty  of it. '  Tlie Great Northern people ��������� have  started the construction of a first.class  rawhide trail to'tap the wagon road,  and expenses in connection with their  ore shipments will be cut down to tho  lowest notch.  It.is reported that La no   Gilliam   is  bringing in   his   big   pack   train   ancl  will pack the ore   from    the  group.  FOUND   DROWNED.  It was a.Case of Suicide���������Geo. Calloway's Body Recovered.   '  Illecillewaet, August 22.���������The  body of Geo. Calloway, who disappeared over three weeks ago under circumstances pointing to self-destruction,  was found on Monday in the river  about two0miles west of Illecillewaet,  by Andrew Stanestroin and John McGregor, who were out fishing for trout.  It had been caught by' the feet by a  log, and had ,been ��������� held under ' water  until brought to view by, the recent  fall in' the river.  The< coroner,    Dr,   McLean, '   was  notified at   once   by   telegraph,   and  came, up    from , Revelstoke   Tuesday  morning.     Selecting   Thos.    Richardson as ollicer,    a   coroner's   jury   w-ils  .summoned composed of  Swan   Anderson,    Andrew   Stanestrom,  ' Andrew  Erick.son,    Wm.    Cleveland,'    Walter  Scott and   Archie   Chisholm.    It   required about four hours to secure  the  body, which was done by using'cables, ���������'  as it waSjOn tlie opposite   side 'of   the  rivet*at a'place where 'there   were   no  means   of   crossing.     The   witnesses  testified to tlie finding of tracks pointing directly towards the river,   to   his  disordered state of mind   and hints  at  suicide, and to the,finding of the body.  Tlie verdict of the jury   was   that   the  deceased came to his death by his own  act   during,  a- period   of' temporary  aberation of mind.,  The remains'were taken   to   Revelstoke by tho brother of deceased,   who -  arrived from Ducks Wednesday morning, and wore buried in   the  cemetery  there same, evening.  Geo. Calloway is kindly.' remembered by all who knew hiiri. He was always ready to obligca friend and to  perform an act of kindness to those  who were in need or unfortunate,' and  sincere regret is felt at' his untimely *  end.

THE CLEVER WIDOW.  CHA2TER III.���������Continued.  Mrs.' Hay Denver's life had been * very  toroket ,one, and her record upon land  represented a greater amount of endurance  and self-sacrifice > that his upon ihe sea.  They i-^d been together for four monthB  ���������after their marriage, and then had come a  hiatus of four years, during which he was  flitting about between St. Helena and, the  1 Oil Rivera in a gunboat. Then came a  , blessed year of peace and 'domesticity', ,to be followed by nine years,  with only a three-months break,  'five upon the Pucificstation, and four upon  the Eatt Indian. After that waa a respite  in the shape of tive years in Channel  Squadron, with periodical runs home, aud  then again he was off to the Mediterranean  i* for three years and to Hiilifax for four.  Now, at last, however, .this old married  couple, who were still almost strungets to  each other, had come together in Norwood,  where if their thorb day had been checkered and broken, tho evening at least  promised to bo sweet and mellow. In  person Mrs. Hay Denver'was tull and stout,  witii a bright, round, ruddy-cheeked face,  still pretty, with a gracious, matronly  comeliness.    Her whole life-was a  round  - of devotion and of love w In*oh wm divided  between her' husband land her only sou,  Harold.     ���������  The son it waa who kept thorn in the  neighborhood of Louden, for the'Admiral  was as fond of ships  and of salt wator as  ' ever, and was as happy in the sheets  of a  ' two-ton yacht as on the bridge ot his  six teen-knot monitor. Had ho been untied,  the Devonshire or Hampshire coast would  certainly have been his choice. There was  Harold, however, and Harold's interests'  were their chief care. ' Harold was four-  aud-twenty now. Three years before he had  been taken in hand by an acquaintance of  his father, the head of a considerable firm  of stockbrokers, and fairly launched upon  'Change. His three hundred guinea en-  'trance fee paid, his three sureties of five  hundred pounds each found, his name.ap-  pioved by the,, committee, and all other  formalities complied with he found himself  ,. whirling round,, an insignificant unit, in  the vortex of the money market ot the  world. There, under the guidance of his  father's friend, he waB.instructed in tho  mysteries of bulling and of bearing, the  atrange, usages of 'Change in the intricacies  of carrying over;and of transferring. He  learned to know where to place his clients'  money, which of the jobbers would make a  price  in New Zealands, and which would  ,touch nothing but American'raiis, which  might he trusted and which shunned.  All this, and much more, he mastered, and  to such, purpose that he booh began to  prosper,('and to retain the clients who had  been recommended to him, and to attract  fresh ones. But the work was never  congenial. He had inherited from his  father the lovo  of the air of heaven, his  ,, affection for a manly and natural existence.  To act as middleman between the  pursuer of wealth and the wealth  which he pursued, or to staua as a human  barometer, registering the rise and fall of  the great, mammon pressure in the markets,  was not the work for which Providence hod  placed those broad shoulders and strong  1 limbs upou his well-knit frame. His dark,  open face, too, with hiB straight, Grecian  nose, well-opened, brown eyeH, irjd round,  ' black-curled, head, were all those of a man  - who was fashioned for active physical work.  Meanwhile, he was popular with his fellow-  brokers, respected by his clients, aud  beloved at homo ; but his spirit was restless  within him, aud his mind chafed unceasing-  ' ly, againBt his surroundings.  *" Do you know, Willy," said Mrs.,Hay  Denver one evening as sho stood behind  her husband's chair, with her hand upon  his shoulder, " I think somotimes that  Harold is not quite happy."  " Ho looks happy, tho young rascal,"  answered the Admiral, pointing with his  cigar. It was after "diuuer, and through  the open French window of the dining-  room a^'clear view was to be had of tlie  tennis court and the,players. -A set had  just heen finished, aud 'young Charles  Westmacott was hitting up the balls as  ��������� high as he could 6cud them in the middle of the ground. Dr. Walker aud Mrs.  Westmacott'were pacing up aud down the  laws., the lady waving her racket as she  emphasized her remarks, and the doctor  listening with slanting head and little nods  of agreement. Against the rails at the  near sad Harold was leaning in his flannels  talking to tho two sisters, who stood  listening to him with their long dark  shadows streaming down the lawn behind  them.

As they oame  nearer she could distinguish that they  were Harold Denver and her sister Ida.

In London, Battersea  Park has  become  -one of the most fashionable resorts of the  town since it has been frequented by the  bicycle  riders.    From  the opening  to the  closing of the gates, it is filled with wheel*  era   representing    every   social   condition  'above the  lowest, and (crowd8  of  people  gather to witness the procession.    Bicycling as a reaction ia both as popular and as  fashionable in'England as in this country.  Among  the   wheelers,   too,  are   included  , great numbers of women, girls and matrons  who  come.lfrorn the  ranks of  the English  aristocracy aud the society of fashion.  '   < '  , , Both there and here bicycling is a democratic recreation, but it is none the v less  fashionable for that reason. No circle of  society is so exclusive that it has been able  to guard itself against the'now  prevalent  , passion for the sport, and none has tried to  debar the,'amusement. Considering the  conservatism of women, it is extraordinary  how rapidly they have overcome their  prejudices against so complete an innovation on established feminine habits and  practices aa is involved in wheeling. Soon  after the present safety bicycle was intro.  duced it began to be used timidly by'a few  women,for whose convenience special modifications in its construction were made,but  soon the demand for such machines beoame  so largo that tboygrew to be , extensively  manufactured, lhe fears of Mrs. Grundy  pasBed away, and most completely among  women in the society which fixea the  standard of fashion. Feminine 'bicycling  received the stamp of approval from the  authority which is supreme in matters o  feminine propriety.     Wheeling'   was   pro-  ' nounced   as suitable  as (horsemanship for  women,  and hence'-it was admitted   to a  ,   leading  place   among   tho   recreations  in  which women could bocomingly engage,  TWURE IS A' SCMGE.  THE PRISON SYSTEM OF TURKEY A  - TALE OF HORROR.  , ��������� This was so much of a revolution in  feminine tastes and habits that it could  not have occurred, especially with ao great  rapidity, if the new form of exercise had  not been adapted to women. .Moreover,  the practice extends' among women'of all  social conditions.    It furnishes  recreation  IT > , ' <  for the working girl no less than for her  ''sister who liveai in luxury and pursues  pleasure as a business. Because the oue  uses it both for amusement and for neccs-  , sary locomotion the other does not reject  it as a means of sport.       , , a  It is useless,  therefore,   for any, ono to  inveigh  agaiust bicycling as unsuitable or  improper for women.  The dominant' femi-  t nine sentiment,is in its favor, and there is  no sign that that decision will be reversed^  ;* The indications are'rather that the maohiuo  will   be more and.more extensively used by  women for several years to ������coine'<at  least.  and its employment for essential locomotion  is likely to continue permanently   even if  wheeling as a   ppqrt passes   out of   vogue.  Hence the theory that  it wilf tend to lni-  1 / 'i  pair womanly   qualities   and' to   destroy  feminine aptitudes   most desirable  in   the  helpmeets of men, will receive, the test of  long and wide experience.    It is  the same  theory   which   has    been. imposed as   an  obstacle to every step in   the advancement  '��������� of women, and, so far, it has been exploded  by theaotual results.*Women have profited  by every enlargement of their freedom, nnd  men have shared in the gain.    If bicycling  does not unfit men for their serious  duties,  but may rather strengthen  them for their  preformsnee, why should it not be so with  women ?  Abominable Link* of Grosses!

Turkish prisons are something too hor-  ible to be understood. To'show how, they  are viewed abroad and by people who may  be in danger of imprisonment in them in  their own country it is only necessary to  etate that late advices from Armenia are  to the effect that every Christian in the  land would rather dio by the sword than to  be thrown into'prison to be either tortured  to death or to be starved, ftB the fancy of  the persecutors might dictate'. '  As prisons, all that the entire,Turkish  empire' has, are scarcely, worthy" of the  name. ,They are all simply places of detention where prisoners or convicts can be  kept more or less securely. No attempt is  ever made to reform a criminal. There is  no such a thing as a rtfonnatory institution in all Turkey, Asiatic or European..  The result of the lack of prison system is  that all Turkish con viols'after being released fromrprison after a term are more  hardened in crime than when first convicted. , m '   f  In the provinces the prisons are even  worse than in the large cities. In the  striotly male prisons in tne larger Turkish  cities there are separate apartments for  prisoners awaiting, trial, for those'under  sentence, and for prisoners imprisoned for  debt. In the female" prisons this is not  the case, so that a woman of good character  imprisoned'for dobt may be thrown into  the same ward with women of the most  depraved  habits. -���������    , ���������  ,     PUBLIC  WORKS.  ' Male prisoners are'sometimes employed  on public works. When so employed a ring  aud heavy chains are always attached to  one of the criminal's legs. There isuo provisions for other useful -employment of  prisoners, except that nien not condemned  to the chain gang are allowed to work, at  their own iradefc. ,-Thoy aro also allowed  to use money thus earned for their own  purpose.   '      "  The food furnished to prisoners is absolutely inadequate, It consists of just two  pounds of black bread a day. If a prisoner  has friends he or she may receive a food  supply from them, but, if not, the prisoners  can starve to 'death,for all the Sultan of all  the Turks cares. , '    '  The two' main Turkish' prisons are at  Erzoum and at Adna'uople, and hold about  600 convicts each. ' In Constantinople there  are five small' prisons, of which the institution-on the Place d' Hippodrome is the  largeBt. This will hold aboutSOO prisoners.  There ia also a Turkish prison in Cyprus,  which is now under English rule. <>  , Ir, was this institution which Archibald  Forbes, the London special correspondent,  visitod, and of which he wrote probably  the most accurate account that the English'  nation will ever possess of the interior of a  Turkish'prisou; as the Turkish Government  uot only refuses admittance to its prisons,  but refuses lo loll officially anything about  them. What he said of Cyprus holds good  regarding any other Turkish prison.  little bow-legged Warden of the jail. Into  this passage looked ssveral barred windows,  and benind the bars there glowered and  Btrained the close set faces of the more  dangerous prisoners.  "AVhat ruffianly faces mostof them were !  faces, the expression of which���������wolfish,  ferocious, hungry for blood, sardonic, utterly devilish'���������made the flesh creep." With  every moment there was the clankoi chains,  for every man wore fetters. The expression,  "hugging his chjins,' I have hitherto regarded as a mere allegorical figure of speecb.but  now I was to see the literal reality. The  crowd around the window gave back, and  there approached a tall, stalwart figure  somewhat bowed down by some heavy burden that he carried in his arms. He stopped,  and laid his burden dowu, and then stood  erect���������a Hercules of a maui with a face out  of which everything human save the mere  lineaments wase rased.  "And1 what think you.was his, burden ?  It consisted of a mass of heavy iron linkB,  knotted up into a great clump.and fastened  to the man's rankles. Its weight was 80  tokes, or 100-pound weight. When he  unraveled it, and stretched it out on the  ground, I saw that it was about 15 feet  long, and resembled in the maBsiveuess of  its links the chain-cable, of'a trading  schooner.

' "Great heavens ! Wero not death infinitely to be preferred to auch a fate ? Never  to bo able to,move throughout all these  long years without hugging'to his bosom  that huge knot of iron.  "I passed along this gallery of crime and  misery till the spectacles and'the stenches  sickened me, and I had to escape to purer  air.,' The memory stilt haunts iiie^of the  ghostly faces at the' barred windows, 'of  the clank of trailing chains, of the' indescribable stencil of the air in which a human  being has clung to life for six and twenty  years."       , ,  So much for a sample of Turkish prisons.  Now take a glance at the laws and governmental machinery of the empire. Then  you will know why' the prison systems of  the Empire ia such a crying blot on human  progress.    ' ,    ,  REASONS FOB ALL THIS..    .    a  The Government of Turkey is.asall know,  a despotism tempered by certain religious  and social checks, which for nearly a century have in practice reduced the power, of  the sovereign to that of a quasi-constitutional monarch. So far, therefore, as 'the  caprice of the sovereign is, concerned, it  may ,be said that both life and property are  now fairly safe in Turkey.1- ���������  Asiatic Turkey is now divided into  eighteen vilagets, or first-blaBS provinces,  and'form separate districts forming mutes-  ��������� sariflitts, or spe'oial governments.' The  former are thosoof Brousa, Aid in (Smyrna),  Konia, Adaua., Angora, Constamouni, Sivas,  Trobizoud, Erzeroum, Van,', Diarbettin,  Aleppo, Syria, Bagdad, Bassaro, .Yemen,  the Hedjau and the Isles "on Aegeau Archipelago, The .minor, Governments are  Iebanon, Jerusalem, Dja'nik aud Divrilli,  Scutari and the Preuas Islands, aud all the  Asiaatic shore of the Bosphorus form u  sankak (the sixth) of the special vilaget.of  Constantinople, into which the capital'and  its suburbs^wero formed iu 1S69. '   <-  Each ,. vilaget has   a .special  prison, bo  i  Shades for Treeless Pastures.  Where pastures contain no trees for shade  in the strong heat of , summer, it is cruel  not to afford some artificial shade for the  stock. Such shelter should be provided on  humane grounds, but there is a question of  dollars and cents in it as well.  Discomfort  thing is to be deduced from the tests it is  that cows gave less milk if the slopping  was very mark.d, and the percentages of  fat yielded were actually inconsequential  so far as change was, concerned in either  case. The conclusions are that the best  " slop" that can be fed to a cow is a good  ration of corn, silage, roots, or uncured  grain fodders, aud the drink'that a cow  has is best in the form of good water,  governed by tho inclination of the animal  to drink. '  TiCMrOftAItYSHA^E /'OR STOCK.,  and  even  of any kind lessens productiveness  growth. A rough shed of boards, or  a ��������� rough framework covered with green  boughs, will answer the purpose very well,  but where lumber is expensive and green  bough's are sot at hand, cheap cotton cloth  can be used very effectively, and economically. Such cloih can be bought for five  cents or leBS a yard, and can be stretched  over a framework Bet up against the pasture  fence.'  ALL MIXED TOGETHER.

Tho rash act was  committed whilst Mrs. Camidge was preparing hia breakfast, which he told her not  to bring up to him, that ho would be down  presently. Shortly after ho had said  this Mrs. Camidge heard the report  of a pistol, and 'immediately went to  his room, whore sho found him lying  on the floor on hia back dead,- with a  revolver in his hand.

' The official 'room3'of  the Governor overhauj- the courtyard of the  prison, and the Pasha as. he smoked his  hookah had but littlo other, view than the  putrid courtyard in which the prisoners  who'had admeasure of liberty swarm in  their clanking chains. ,   ,  " I wonder that the vc-ry  stench of the  place did  not aicken   him.    Here in this  _ rison   is an   institution   which  puts   the  story of Louisiana years ago into the shade  and   which   puts humanity  to  the  blush.,  Vet the Turks seem to accept it as a matter  of  oourse.    I   entered lhe   Konak,   and a  Turkish officer, with' a polite   bow, asked  mo if I carpd to see the prison,much in the  tone that  tho WarJon at   Koiyrood   asks  the tourist if he lias a mind   to see Queen  Mary's room.

VARIOUS   MANACLES.  that there areJ.really 18 main prisons in  Turkey, one jtor eachv vilaget. Each is a  hell hole such .is Forbes described;  ".' The vilagets vary in geographical extent,  and, according tt> thetr-size, are divided  into from three to' five sanjaks, which are  subdivided again into kazas, or districts)  and these again into nahies or communes,  composed of small groups or villages.  EACH HAS A   GOVKRNTOR.  The vilayet, whioh usually bears the"  name of its chief town, is administered by  a vali' or4 Governor General, in rank a  m'ushir, which is the highest .class ofa  Pasha. The sanjaks are governed by  caimacams, or second-class Pashas���������both  appointed by the Porte���������and the kazas by  Mudirs, or Directors, ostensibly elected by  the inhabitants, but in reality named by  the Vali ; and the communes by Mouktars  or Mayors, also^snpposed to be elected for  a year, but, as a rule, similarly imposed on  their constituents by the Mudir.  Besides these grades of executive ohiofs,  each province is further weighted with a  very numerous staff of administration aids.  The Vali usually brings his appointment  from , some palace favorite. All tho other  officials, too, are equally culpable,' and the  result is the most debasing of all possible  Governments. ���������  These officials in the administration of  justice are simply barbarous. 'Although in  many of its incidents and relations Turkish  society is less amenable to law than in  more civilized communities, it is still  sufficiently so af to have in the Multequa  and other Ottoman codes, if at all honestly  administered, amplo guarantees for substantial justice and adequate protection  against most of the existing abuses.  But dispensed as law'now is even among  Mussulman, the law is merely another  engine of oppression' at the service of the  rich man who can'pay for it, against the  poor one who cannot. The Christian, or,  man of other'faith than that of Moham-  ii ed, absolutely has no rights at all in law  Courts or anywhere else in   Turkey.  Under these circumstauces is it any  wonder that Turkish jails and prisons  are a blot upon modern civilization ? Lawlessness,'tapino,'murder aud torture make,  up in a word or two the present system of  the great Turkish Empire.  ���������    Clover Growing*.  vCIover growing was a long time a puzzle  to the thinking farmer. Away b'aok in  the time of the early Romans who grew  large crops oi Lucerne clover it waa known  that a i crop of clover was the best preparation "for a crop bf wheat. Almost over  since that time the same practice has prevailed amongst the best farmers. Why  'was this the case ? Clover is riclrin nitrogen,' in some forms ' most' ' valuable as  a manure for - plants ; and also most  valuable in plant form as food for animals,  Could it be that the clover plant drew its  supply of nitrogen from the free nitrogen  of the air? Air is composed of about,  eighty parts of nitrogen to twenty parts  of oxygen. If this nitrogen be valued at  the price of commercial"nitrogen as Bold  inartificial manures tho air in and above  each acre of land would be worth , about  $90,000. TrTere is plenty of it about if it  could be used., Scientific men said this  was impossible. The nitrogen of the air  waa not in a oondition to be used as plant  food. Lawes and Gilbert, of ifothamsted,  England, worked at the problem for nearly  half a century.,- They,found more nitrogen  in the soil alter a clover crop had removed  150 pounds per aore than there was" .before the clover was sown. About enough  surpluR to supply a good wheat crop  which needs one and one-half "pounds'  per bushel. A German scientist, Hellrigel,  after years of study showed that tho clover  did get its supply from the free nitrogen of  the air.., All.tlie Legumihosie or puke family  have this valuable property. This family  ia a large one, and besides all the clovera,  includes peas, beans," retches, and a few  shrubs and trees., The locust,tree belongs  to this-order. -On the rootleta of these  plants are found small nodules, or wart like  growths varying iu size, but none of them  larger than a small,seed. These contain  albumen and bacteria^and it is said the bacteria found in the nodules of clover are not  the same as are found on peas or beans. By  some means not yet fully oxplained these  bacteria are able to use the free nitrogen of  the air and manufacture from it, some compound of nitrogen fit for plant food. The  clover plant in this way secures enough  nitrogen for its own use and leaves a surplus for-the uso of succeeding crops of grain  or grass. There'is much still to learn as  to how the work is done., Some think that  if the soil bo rich in available nitrogen the  clover will use a considerable quantity of  it before the nodules form on the rootlets.  This is over and above what is needed to  give,the plant a good Btart and a vigorous  young growth.  The newest phase in the matter is the  "inoculating" theory. Land seeded^ to  clover 1s sprinkled with soil from an old  clover field. This is to bring the spores of  the clover bacteria so that thoy may  quickly form nodules on the youug roots.  Sowing the clover seed and then sowiug the  bacteria seed. It is already claimed that  great results have followed this way of  working. There is a wide field h������re 'for  experimenting.-  Clover Sickness.���������This is a' disease  touching red clover. Where a short cuurse  rotation, say a three or four years' one, is  adopted with red clover it was found that  in tune the clover would not do well.    The  TELEPHONING ALONG THE CONGO.  Drum* Wilh Which the \alircx Arc Able  to Communicate Long instances.  , Capt. Five, a Belgian explorer, says that  the people of the Congo have a curious and  interesting method of telephoning. For a  long time he refused to believe that the na:  tives really had the power to communicate  wilh others at a distance, though articles  had been sent to him in answer to auch  Communications. At length, one day,  ���������journeying' on the river by pirogue, and  being about fifty milea from Basoko, he  determined, instead of slopping, , to presa  on to the village.

Verellen. A fire was burning ashore and a  Bupper was being made ready.���������uapr.Five,  afler greeting the Lieutenant, inquired  eagerly how he had learned of the approach  of the expedition. The Lieutenant replied  that the news had been brought some hours  before by a negro, who said that a white  man waa approaching by way cf the river  and would need supper. t ,    ,  The drum used by the nativea for this  purpose is a small but noisy affair of wood.  It ia constantly employed in communicating short distances, in order to save time  and trouble. In this instance there had  evidently been, relays of drummers along  the whole fifty mileB from the point where  the original signal was given to near BaBn-  ko. The natives are able, with their drums,  i'o Bignal'meBsagesof considerable length.  3  Only a Drink of Water.  We were coming from a visit to the old  home. It waa almost nine o'clock, and the  lights were swaying sleepily ove* the aisle  of the crowded train. Conversation , waa  beginning to die' away. The passengers  were growing decidedly sleep;-, inr the air  was warm and close.  But the baby down at the other end of  the car waB crying still. Sometimes ho  only sobbed chokingly,and then his shrieks  fairly filled the coach. The good-natured  passengers were doing their best to endure'  the unwelcome serenade; but there, was  some quiet joking at the expense of the  baby���������and the baby's parents���������in some of  the farther seats.  "Try a little' 'Rough on Rats,' suggested  a burly fellow in the rear seat.  "Shaken before taken," laughed a   jolly  'drummer" near',   aa tho   poor baby   was  "jounced" up und down so violently   that  it seemed doubtful whether'the   little victim's breath would bo lost'or not.       '     ,  At last I could  stand   it no longer.    At  the risk  of  being thought  "meddlos-.ome'* ,  by the child's parents, both of whom aecmed ���������  utterly oblivious  to   tho fact of the baby'  discomfort, I went down the aisle and asked  for the little one.  "I am fond of little people," I said  smilingly. ��������� "Perhaps baby would enjoy the  change. Travelling ia hard on children bo  young.  -I   am used   to   babies.

"  Gardeners will be interested to learn that  J, Davis, of Wood Close, Bromley common,  Kent, England, has growing at the present /arms,  time peas which are the product of sound  peas found iu" Upper Egypt in a mummy  case about three years ago. The aarcopha-'  Hub which contained the, mummy aud case  in which the parent of,theae peas wore  found was discovered in a cave tomb situated in the Valley of the Kings at AssaBeef  which is about an hour'B ride west from tli*e  Nile atThebes. The discovery was made  by a party of five gentlemen, consisting of  two Americans, two Cambridge students  and the cousin of the lady from whom the  specimen peas ,now growing at Bromley  were obtained.  The inscription went to show that the  person entombed was Memptah, a younger  son of User-Khepara-Ra (Seti II.), sou of  Rameses II., founder of tho eighteen dynasty. Prince Memptah existed about 1270  B.C. The yalley in which this tomb was  discovered ia the old 'burying place of the  Theban .

All of theBe  two races of king3 vjoro buried in this  valley, but only about one.-half the number  buried (about foriy in all) diave yet been  discovered. The pease aro much smaller  than those of the present day, a'fact which  is possibly evidence of the improvement  which has'taken place in'the cultivation in  the modest interval of 3,000 years.  Unique Ammunition.  The most remarkable ammunition ever  heard of was used by the celebrated Com-  modore Coe,of the Montevidian Navy,who,  iu an engagement with Admiral Brown, of  the Buenos Ayrean service,fired every shot  fiom his lockers. "What shall wo do,sirV'-'  asked his FirHt Lieutenant. It looked ui if  Coe would have to strike his colors, when  it occurred to his First Lioutomint to uso  Dutch cheese us cannon balls. There  happened to bo a largo quantity of these on  board, and in a few minutes iho tiro of' the  old Santa'Marin (Coe's i ship), which had  csascd entiroly,wns reopened, and Admiral  Brown found more shot flying over his head.

Yolland and Cummins Win the Doubles
���Barber, the Singles.
The finals in the interesting tournament, begun on Saturday hist, jhhI in
which'the three Revelstoke clubs took
part, were played off at the Metropolitan club court on Wednesday last, and
the day being fine, and tho court in
excellent condition after the previous
night's rain, most of those interested
in tennis put in an appearance during
the day.
Play in the first final event���the
men's doubles���commenced about two
o'clock, Me-srs. -Yolland and Cummins
' Opposing Messrs. Oage and llaig. The
first t>et was won, after a keen contest,
hy Cruge and llaig.
The second, however, mainly owing
to Yolland's splendid placing, was won
for his side, and despite the utmost
efforts of the other side, i'or which
Crage's fine hack play evoked repealed
applause, the. next two sets were won
by Yolland and Cummins, they thus
winning the match by three set- to
one. Yolland and Criige, at their'bctt,
in their respective styles of play were'
seen to great advantage throughout.
A short interval sutliced to bring
Messrs. Brown and Barber on the
court to decide the winner of the men's
-singles. This event was even' more
closely contested than the last, and
there were a' number of notable rallies
distinguished bj' quick, crisp drives,
"and as admirable returns on both sides,
but Barber managed to keep ahead
, and eventually won the match, by the
score'of three to one. Tt inay safely
be said that neither of thesegeiitlcme'ii
have been seen to such advantage in
Tennis before, and that it was Barber's
best match by all odds in Revelstoke. ,,
A wait of considerable duration took
-place before the last match of the
tournament���the mixed doubles���com-
juenced ; Mrs. Coursier assisted by, Mr.
Yolland facing, Mr,' and Mrs. Crage.
, Owing to both the gentlemen engaged being tired after their pievious
/mitches, this event was not played
with quite the same spirit that the
previous .ones were, and the light,
which, bad when the match com ineiiced,
became' lapidly worse, materially
assisted to make good tennis difficult.
Both ladies, however, made some very
good points at various stages of the
mime,., which finally .went to ' Mrs.
Coursier and Mr. Yolland���score three

Catholic Church Entertainment.   ,
One of the most successful ^church
entertainments ever held in Kevelstoko
cann*'off at I'etersfiti's hall last, Saturday evening. ' It was organized by the.
ladies , of the'Catholic church,' the
object being to raise funds to liquidate
the church debt, nnd their efforts were
crowned with most gratifying result1;
���the   receipts   amounting   to 'about
$100.    The audience   almost  filled the
large   hall,   and,   judging    from    the
liilaiity  which   prevailed   throughout
the evening, the programme,   consisting of songs, recitations,  and   refreshments, was   much   appreciated.   Rev.
Fallic Dpntenwillhad a few words to
say, by way of  welcome,  after which
Mr. T." Wilson ' recited   "The  Face at
the   Pane," 'very     acceptably.     Guy
Barber,ha�� very seldom bean heard   in
better   voice,   and   his   solo'- number,
"TiueLove,'" was rendered i:i hia best
style and earned a'double   encore. ,A
sweetly    palpelic    little    tiling    was
"Bread on tiie   Waters,"' a   rei itation
by Miss   Kstella   Brown,   whit,!)   wa.s
rendered with   much' dramatic   effect.
" LiTe's Dream is,O'er," a duet by Mrs.
11. N. Coursier aud   Mr.   Barber,   was
'heartily applauded   by   the* audience.
Mrs.   Coursier   was   most    happy    in
selecting her solo   number" for   "The
Girl I Left Behind Me" was   a   most
taking number,   and   the   favor 'with,
which" it was received should'prove un
incentive to our concert vocalists to be
less chary of giving us 'what are erroneously  .termed   "old"'   songs.     Mi.ss'
Lillio'Valent.ine's   recitation' was   not
what would be called Jin, dc kieclc and
its argument was rather lough on that
'paicel   of   incongruoiisness��� the   selfT
assertive   female   person,     commonly
called     tlie     "now,    woman."     Miss
Valentine displayed peeuliai talent   in
her rendering ���a talent which would
enable her lo make a marked success
in a Quaker character.   W. ,1. Lee was
very humorous in, his vocal  numbers,'
and' earned an encore each time; it, was
not exactly what he said; but the  way
he said  it.    The   pantomime   skit   by
Messrs, Ciage. Cotton and  Sycler,. wa's
absurd,  enough   to   please   tin*    most,
ardent lover of burlesque.    During the
evening Mr. lr. C.   Cotton,, who   is   a
Kipjiling   enthusiast,     iccited     some
selections from his favorite bard   most
acceptably.   The finale wus a   "movement" executed by   W. .1. Lee  and F.
Frascr, entitled,'"Dance of the Vegetables," and proved an amusing parody
on the Wehling's "Dance of the Roses."
The solos and accompaniments of Mr.
F. Ahlin. Uevelstnke's piano   virtuoso,
received due   recognition   during   thp
