XLbc 1kootena^/Ibatl
West Kootenay is now recognized
us the gmiitest mining district, in
British Culunibin and even in the
western United States^, wilh the
exception perhaps yf'Cripple creek m
Cr/lor-ida. Its development,, liowevcr,
has ftcaivelv begun. Trail Creek,
,L\).i(i Mountain, Jiluc ]iell and Slocan
'.ire i,'iviiig forth their wealth, but they
are 'detached localities in the .southern
part of the (li&ti ict, while the giwt
central and northern portion of West
Kootenay, although known to be rich
in mineral deposits, , have attracted
little attention.'
That such a valuable mineral field,
prospectively' so important, us the
consumer of iron and steel in all '-their
multitudinous forms, has now to rely
upon outside and distant foundries and
iron works, is'a state of things that
c.innot long exist. And we are confi-
denttli.atwithin'a few months extensive
iron worCs will be established within
the district. Theiv. are at the piesent
time more than one iron company look-
ing'ovei- Kootenay district for a . suitable place in which to locate a branch
establishment. , The ' advantages, 'of
Revelstoke arc being consicleied. as
one of the places in which it would be
desirable to erect such works.
The most important advantage
possessed by Revelstoke is' its central
position. We do not refer to its
geographical location, although in this
respect it is more central than any
other important town. Being on the
Canadian. Pacific Railway, the great
artery of Dominion traffic, where it
crosses the Columbia river, which is
navigable both north and south, it is
the point from which all freights in
either direction must be .distributed.
Its accessibility, therefore, from ;, and
to the east. " west, north , and s'.uiih
prove.** that it is central. 'No other
town in'West Kootenay lias this advantage, and no other one for ve.u-s to
come can compare with it in ,thi:;
respect. E\en should the lung-talked
of and much-hoped tor'   B.C. Southern

A man known by the name of I-'.
T. Adams committed r suicide near
Salmon Arm on Nov. 2S. He was
���ipparently a. tramp and had been employed at Oenelle's sawmill about, a
month. On Thursday morning he.
borrowed a gun from a' neighbor,
ostensibly to sliojt a bear which be
,aid he had seen. Tie went about a'
mile up the hill, la-vhed the gun to a
tree, fastened a string to the. trigger,^
seated,himself in front of the muzzle
md pulled the tiig^ur, the. result being
instantaneous doalh. The inquiry
held bv this coroner last Katurdav
failed to elicit any pai ticulars i-egaid-
jng the antecedents of the deceased..
Williams Sells out of the Coniolation.
One-fourth share of the Consolation
mine, on French Creek, Big Rend,
owned by O. B. Williams, was sold
last Monday to Pete Levesipie and
-Jou B'imgisois. ,. The pi ice is liot given
but a portion iif 'the purchase money
was paid'in cash,'the balance to ,l>e
corthcoiiiing' next spting, and will
probublv, be taken from bed-rock.
LevesquVand Bourgeois left on Tuesday for the Bend accompanied ' by J.
\V. McCreary, another shareholfler -in
the Consolation. Mr. Williams'went
west on Monday evening to Whatcom.

The Sto.iiner Kootenai, Capt. Alex.
Lindquist, on her trip hist -Tuesday
morning;' from Wigwam to the mouth
of the river, struck an obstruction,
supposed to be a rock or Miair. and
sunk about 200 yards above
wood Island. She 'was loaded
ties and was towing a scow ( loaded
with rails aud ties for the Arrow Lake'
branch. The.captain did not at" first
tliink it serious, the weight of the scow
dragging' him over the, .obstruction,

Winter has set in at this camp.
The snow is about 18 inches deep on
the low ground, and three feet at  the
mines. ��� _, . .
Capt. John Grant left last ' Friday
morning for the east, and there aie
some intimations that he, will visit '
Scotland before his return. The
syndicate or mining company that he
is acting for , in superintending work
on the Maple, Leaf was formed at Toronto, and he will doubtless rep-nfc
progress in person.
' Mr. Snowde'n, who is .superintendent
for the Lanark Co. started'for Victoria

An English comp my that proposes
to operate iu B.C. mines has obtained
terms for a bond on two claims a few
few miles from town. The. deal will
be closed in .March.
The Isabella; the riche-sr.-gi^vjtoJwyL.
claim iii this camp, was worked at ��� a
former time," the ore* averting -'WO'
ozs. silver and some samples' running
as high as,'1000 ozs. to the. Urn. It.
belongs to the ��� Lanark Co., -and fixe
men will be employed on it during the
winter. '  ������
Ben Green has bought from John
Skogstrom foity acres > of hind at

" The deep snow in the mountains
has driven some wild animals to the,
lower'levels. " A few days ago a l>ear
wasshot by Charles Taylor, .with buckshot, a few yards from the Maple Leaf
hotel. Tt was 11 o'clock at night,
but he was hit by seven buck-shot and
killed instantly. A wolf also is , making a visit to-the camp almost nightly,
looking doubtless for a feast on Tommy
Richardson's ducks and chickens.

join tlie main line ot' the CP.K. at
Revelstoke, either from Hobson,
Nakusp or by way of Kootenay lake,
the Lardeau Pass and Northeast- Arm.
It will be seen, therefore, that all of
Southern Kootenay can then be readily
supplied from this point, ;u>d largely
so even now bet'oi ei * the suggested
avenues of tr.dlic are opened. All
points on and near the river, including
Trail, -Rossland, the 'Slocan,, Trout
Lake, Lardeau and Fish Creek, are
now' reached directly by way of . the
Columbia from Revelstoke.""
Other advantages besides these already referred to\:;in be named. Large
quantities of raw material are used in
foundries which have to bo transported by railway, such as coke, anthracite
coal,"moulding sand and pig iron, nnd
on much of these all transportation
south of Revelstoke will be saved, for
in converting pig-iron into manufactured goods the other articles
mentioned "are mostly consumed.
At no other place in West Kootenay
can these results be secured. A first-
class foundry and iron-working establishment here, would quite surely
settle the question for all of Kootenay.
P.ut should one be located, say 'on
Kootenay lake, Revelstoke would still
command business to the cast, dividing
the distance with Calgary, and would
hav^Donald, Golden and the Upper
Columbia ; to the west, Tappen Sjding,
Salmon Arm, Sicainous and Okanagan
Valley, wheie castings and iron work-
will "cbe required 'immediately for
smelters, concentrators,' tramways,
pumps and other mining purposes ;
north of Hcvelstoke, on the Columbia
and Canoe rivers; then-' would bo no
competition ; and to the south, the
business originating on and near the
river, with proper enterprise, would
bclun" to Revelstoke, iu addition to
Slocan, the Lardeau, Kish Creek and
lllecillewaet. That iron works will
soon be established at. Revelstoke
there is no doubt, and we invite the
attention of the inaniifncUiiers of mining and milling machinery to the advantages of its location.
]t is reported that one of our public-
spirited land owners will present to
any good iron-works company a suit-
able'and desirable site containing two
lo three acres, that will establish
works here of .sullicient capacity to
supply the needs of the district.

A New Gold Camp in Colorado.
i A despatch'from Denver .says: The

lir repeated . and , possihly. eclipsed hv
"West ("reck, which,.is within 50 miles
<if Denver. The greatest activity prevails- among the miners and prospectors
and there are now several hundred
assessments worked. The miners claim
the mineral is richei than that^at
Cripple Creek, on the surface. Lt is
lodged in dourly /U'lint'd veins, and
can lie easily traced. The camp is located 21 miles soutli of Platte station

Lake of the Woods Gold.    -'    -,
' *.   i
According to the Rat Portage ' Re-
mrd the total production of the, Lake
of the Woods gold mifies for . November was 700 ounces of gold, of the
value of $12,600. This wa�� from the-
Sultana, Regina and Gold Hill mines
a'ud the Rat Portage Reduction works.
The Sultana was running its ten
stamps full time, and the' Regina ten
stamps were running very little over
half time as they "are- still doing d<*
v-ftlopment work. The Gold Hill ten
stamp mills ��.��d t��e Reduction works'
(twenty stamps) were running very
short tune us they are only just begin--
ning. Mr. M. T. Hunter brought in
from 'the Sultana mine on Monday
two gold bricks, one weighing SO
ounces and the other S6, a totakif ICO
ounces, being a coin value of $3,100.
This was from, the clean-up of the
previous'week's run of the.mill.

Our Mining Laws suit Him.
John   H.   Toole   rceciVlly visited,llie
Houndary Creek country in  the  interest, of lhe  Anaconda   Mining  Co- the
result heing I lull, that company has become inl"i'esli'd in some, of the proper-
lie.,   there.    Mr.   Toole  says   Ihe puis-
pecl.s nf the camp impressed him   very
I'avorably, 11*-* also did our milling laws.
Speaking to the KuLtc Minn: he said :
"The  mining  laws  of lhitish Columbia have many excd'eoi features.    For
instance, a   mining  claim   is  150D   leet
square. AH M��e nijneral in that ground
belongs  to  the owner of the claim, no
iiinl.ter where the ap.ex is     lis   boundaries   are   vertical   and    then-    is     no
disputing   about   mid'-rgromid   workings. ' This prevents a vast iiiiiotmt   of
expensive     and    aiinoying   litigation.
Then   the  claim-jumper  finds   15,-ilish

AH persons   lo  own   mining  propel ty
liiei'c imist luive a i< liner's license. Thi.-
applies to nntiven ,i'. wdl a*- foreigners.
II' a uiiiier alteinpl-s lo jump a piece  ol*
property or  doe.s anything c.ilculated
lo make trouble or inflict  wrong,   the
gold   commissioner piomptly  j-cvokes
his license, .-ii'id his iiiiuiiig iiriqiiirty .is
declared .forfeited."
Output of the Slocan Mines.
Byron White estimates the' output
of the. Slocan mines the coming year
at ,20,000 tons. "The Slocan Star
will ship 10,000 tons of this," he said
to a Spokesman-Review reporter. "Development work in the Slocan has run
far ahead .of production,''he continued,
"and'now that the railroad is built,
the mines have large ore bodies blocked out, all ready for knocking down
and shipping. Many of them, in fact,,
have largc quantities of ore on the
dump, waiting for a snow fall to take
their product down to the railroad.-'
"The ore shipped from the Sloeim,"
said Lane Gilliam, "will average at
least 120 ounces of silver and 1200
pounds of load, over and above the 10
per cent, of lead and live per cent, of
silver knocked oil' by the smelters for
loss in treatment. "With silver at G7
cents this would bring SS0.10, and
with lead ut :l cents, ��.*3t5, or $116.40
per ton." "A good deal of the ore. in
that "section returns 1500 and 700
ounces per, ton," said Mr. Gilliam.
" List winter the Good Enough, -frouj
a 1 1-inch vein, shipped one carload of
ore which netted tho owners *SS!170
afler all cost of freight and treatment
had been paid."
Conservative mining men think the,
gross value of the Sloeau ore will average SI 2:"i per ton. At this rate, the
estimated output for the coming year
would be $2.r)00,000.
The Pilot Bay Smelter.
A. M. 1 lendvrx says that the. Pilot
liny smelter shipped .'WOO tons of
bullion since the ltfth of March the
smelter having been running about
one-half of the time, and the company
has not purchased so much as 175
tons of lead from the neighboring
mines. *
'���Since January 1, he snys. the lilue
Hell mine, owned by the company, hat
produced 42.SU tons of ore. The.
new coin pressor is now at work in the.
mine. At present only four .drills are
being used. A' shaft is being sunk
from"the. lower level and thc ore is
constantly improving. The same per
cent, of lead is carrying a higher per
cent, of silver. The hoisting and
��� pumping in the mine are Wing dvnn

' SVTIJIKIKT VOTES  Never before In Europe or in the  world lias there been a politlco-military  eombination of such magnitude as that  of the six Christian powers which havc  taken joint action in the case of Turkey, ' The' Holy Alliance of 1815 was  a feeble thing in comparison with it.  The powers now acting together for a  special purpose have more soldiers under  arms than there are able-bodied inhabitants-in the Ottoman empire. Thc  army of Sennacherib tho Assyrian, or  Alexander, the, Macedonian, or Caesar  thc Roman, would look small alongside  thc millions who march' under the flags  of the. sis powers that confront the  Turk. ��������� The armies of the middle ages,  ,or of later centuries, the armies of. Napoleon Ronapartc were far inferior in  number to thc armies which stand ready  at this time to draw thc sword against  the Sultan. No military combination,  ever before existed upon the earth tlio  magnitude of which can. be compared  ��������� with that of thc six Christian powers  recon tly formed. Thc thing is not likely to lost long, but, while it lasts, it is  a spectacle without a parallel' in history.  It Ls stated, that Mansfield, thc actor,  having ju.st recovered from a. severe ill-  ' neas, finds that hc has forgotten all thc  lines of his parts and will havo to rc-  Btucly them. This is by no means an  unusual phenomenon, for memory is a  tricksy faculty, aa most people find out  before reaching' middle age. Much as  wo aro obliged to rely on it in all the  affairs of life, it is constantly deceiving  us,   often   to  our  mortification'.  Sickness, as ��������� in 'Mansfield's case, and  old ago arc the chief enemies of memory and often' greatly impair it���������that  Is, they impair the recollection, or the  power of recalling at will. It is doubtful, from vvhat experience shows, if we  ever absolutely? lose^what has once been  '' in tho mind. ( ,We are often surprised  by thc coming up for a moment to t^e  memory of some long past event which  . had apparently faded from the recollection. In,fact, we often make efforts  to recall something and utterly fail for  , tho time being and give it up.1 Presently there walks into the mind unbidden  and uncalled for the very circumstance  or thing that wc had been so vainly  seeking.  The experience of persons resuscitated from drowning confirms the" theory  that, nothing is lost from the mind.  ,Their testimony is unanimous that ,bc;  fore' losing consciousness every past  event of their lives, passed vividly  through their minds. Dr. Oliver Wendell Ilolmcs, in hLs'lecture on "Mechanism in Mind and Morals," tells some  anecdotes touching his experience of  drowning men. His theory is that  everything that has once entered the,  mind is photographed there; as on the  plate of a camera, and there it,will always remain for good or ill.  ABOUT TIE HOUSE'  Because Father Does It  In a family that' is unfortunate  enough to have for one of Its recognized heads 'an immoral character, the  other should,' ic my opinion, be ever  loyal to truth and the young characters put into his hands for molding into  usefulness or uselessness, says a writer.  Here is another question. Which shall  it be? Shall thc children be brought  up in the very mi list "of sin (great or  small, the misdoings certainly are sins)  and never bo warned against them,  never be told that they are wrong, sina-  1'ly because it happens to be their own  father or mother who commits the sins?  Shall they be taught that whatever  tiieir father does is right and good for  them to follow? "If father does it, why  can' I not do it ?" is a question which  confronts every' mother.  If this particular father is in the habit of doing those things whioh are immoral and harmful, what will thc mother say in reply to that, boy, if she has  brought him up never to hear a complaint' or criticism of tho wrongdoings  of his father? If, for instance- tho  father be a shiftless, worthless sort of  a man, will the mother, if sho be ever  so industrious, bo likely to succeed in  making of her'children thrifty men and  women, if they are taught to think  that what their father does, or rather,  does not, is all right ? Boys, particularly, are likely to do just as their father does, and often to think just as, he  does. - ' ,  If the mother be an indifferent housekeeper, will not her daughters follow  in her footsteps and make some home  unpleasant ? Tho very example should  be a guard against this, but it is not  often so. It is hard, of course, for one  parent to criticise the other, and, perhaps, it Ls wrong: but the boys and  girls of to-day will be the men and  women of to-morrow and, if this is an  age of improvement, the men and women who will fill our high offices, in  coming years must be an improvement  upon their predecessors. All havc their  faults, all have' sinned and come short  of the glory of God, and, probably, this  will continue as long as man lives. It  seenis to me that if a person must sin  at all, thc future of his children and  the nation would be as reasonable a  provocation as any, so I would run tho  risk of its being wrong to complain of  the erring parent.  thoroughly hot, add ' two quarts boiling water, and let all cook till tender;  mash up' the pieces with a wooden  spoon to a pulp; then put in the washed tapioca, and milk, also another pint  of water; stir until it boils; skim,  and simmer for about thirty minutes.

Mas I of the great scholars are celebrated for their memories, and wo have  all heard of the feats in that way per-'  formed by Dr. Johnson, Macaul.iy and  others. Tho celebrated Greek scholar,  Br. Person, .-scorns to have excelled in  this way. He knew by heart all the  great Greek poets and prose writers,  could recite whole plays o������ Shakespeare,  pages 'and pages of Gibbon's history,  Pope's "Rape of thc Lock," and tlio  whole of Somollelt's "Roderick .Random" from the first page to the last,  as well aa countless smaller things.  . Aclors are usually more noted in this  respect than others ancl innumerable anecdotes are told of''them. John Phillip  Kcinblo memorized with astonishing  rapidity, and,could repeat columns,nnd  columns of a morning paper after a  careful reading. Another,story is told  of an actor who memorized a long part  , in . a few hours before going on the  stage, but that after the play was over  could not recall a smgle one of his  lines. He played the part many'times.  but invariably had to memorize it freshly, as he-had done in thc first instance.  It has sometimes been , invidiously  etf.id that great memories do not necessarily accompany gieat intellectual  powers in other respects, but the list  is long of great men who had remarkable memories, from tti.fi days of Julius  Caesir, who knew,the names of all his  soldier.1-,, down to Von Molt Ice,, who  could keep silent in seven languages.  And the list includes not only soldiers  bul philosophers, statesmen, orators and  tcholais.  , Duties of Guests.  The pleasures of entertaining guests is  often materially lessened by their manifest indifference to the trouble- they  sometimes heedlessly entail upon their  hostess. For instance, the guest who  visits a friend, by the way,of a ploas-  and surprise, without having previously  apprised her thereof, is seldom genuinely welcome, as tho consciousness of  having' things prepared for thc coming of a stranger "in (the household constitutes a great deal of .joy in receiving  a visitor. Again, there is always a visitor who neglects to be in time for meals,  or thoroughly air her sleeping 'apartment, make her bed and properly empty  and refill the washbowl and basin assigned for her use, all of which arc unmistakable , signs of ill-breeding - and  personal unclcanliness! ��������� ���������  Another disagreeable' type of guest is  the ono who willfully appropriates all  her hostess' writing material, postage  stamps and hair and, hat pins without  the slightest honorable intention of returning tlie same as soon as possible,  liven ill servants aro employed in a  house, they are not bound to render any  extra service to a guest unremunerated.  Besides, it is but a very small-hearted  visitor who faih' to pay in some substantial way any'unusual service rendered by a servant. Again, it is only  a lazy, ill-bred guest who will disarrange books, bric-a-brac or furniture in  a house, and fail to replace them properly. The hostess has some . rights  which should be conscientiously considered by her guests, and which if  necessary," she is justified in asserting  N'o person should assume the unsolicii-  CHOLERA IN JAPAN:  Row the   ToKyo Aiuiiorillcs  Act   When n  Den 111 TaKcs I'iact.  .Riding through a narrow street in  Tokyo a few days ago' I saw' some  commotion around a poor Japanese  house and'four policemen with' 'yellow bands upon their sleeves, were displaying .great activity, writes a correspondent.

' Tho body waa hastily  placed in it, a liberal supply of quick-'  lime. was pitched in, tho lid was  screwed down, and away the cart' and  its grewsome load went. Meantime  disinfectants had been brought up.

The work of burning every particle of clothing and  bedding and matting in the place then  began in the. back yard, a bonfire being, made for the purpose. Every  article of excrematory matter upon  the premises was thrown upon this  blazing pile. ' Then the whole premises  were thoroughly, saturated with disinfectants of, the most approved character, the house was" closed, and a  policeman was left in charge to, keep  people off the premises.  The officer in charge, who spoke a  little English, told me ��������� thnt if _ thc  epidemic had been showing a disposition to increase of late this house  would have , been burned to the  ground.

The latest figures furnished  officially touching thc cholera in Japan  place thc total number of oases to date  at 48,129, and the number of deaths  at 32,848.

In at least  three of tho great powers the ��������� men  who stand next by right of succession  to .the throne itself are enfeebled, suffering from very present diseases, and  ono is on tho brink of the grave. In  several other nations the princes, next  in lino to the' crown are sickly, and  it is only by a careful suppression bf  tho real truth that distressing rumors aro not circulated about them. It  is truly, a most remarkable state of  affairs for the royal, families of Europe. ' ������  ��������� The most serious and tho most potent danger lies in tho Russian Empire. George, Grand Duke and Czarevitch, is now dying in a villa in a remote corner of the Caucasus of consumption, breathing painfully' with but  a single  lung.         ,'  In Austria the Archduke Ferdinand  Francis, heir presumptive, is'in a most  precarious state of health, he too being  a .victim of consumption.,' For years  past, ever since the death of "Rudolph,  Crown Prince, in 1889, tho hope of  Austria has centered- in this young  nephew of .Emperor" Francis-Joseph.  His father" is the. heir 'apparent, it Ls true, but Archduke Charles  Louis, next in" line to the throne, is  now an old man, having been born in  1833, older and with far less hope of  living, so feeble is he, than is tho Emperor  himself.  King Humbert of Italy does not find  In his only son and heir a 'man of' an  iron frame and a masterful will liko his.  Of an entirely different calibre is the  young Prince of Naples, a slight, delicate boy, yet in the early twenties, who  has so delivered 'himself over to the  obsequious flattery and the cajolements  of tho foreigners in Naples and' Rome  that he has weakened his frame liy dissipation, and'bids fair to have a very  short lease of life, indeed. His condition is even more serious tha������n is liintcd  at in tho Italian news of the day.  i It the remaining royal families arc  carefully investigated, a strange fact  may be noted���������that there is, with one  exception, ho heir to a throne in Europe  who is strong and lusty and gives  promise of a vigorous reign after the  present rulor passes 'away. The possible exception is Prince Royal Gusfavns  of Sweden, a young man of thirty-  seven years of age, thc son of King  Oscar ,11., who married Princess Victoria of Baden, a, granddaughter of  famous old William' I. of Germany, and  who has developed no vices and acquired, no maladies. This prince is an  energetic, athletic young man, has literary tastes, and, will in all likelihood  enjoy a  long  life. , '  For' years the King of thc Hellenes,  George I., 'has been the victim of a  disease of the kidneys, a hereditary  complaint, and he has unsuccessfully  visited' Aix-les-Bains for treatment.  There is little question that Prince Constantino, his eldest son, is in the incipient stages of the disease, though  there is nothing very marked or serious  as yet.  CROWN PRINCE OF.GERMANY.  The little Crown Prince William of  Germany, despite the military regime  his enthusiastic,father, William TI., has  made him.undergo, is wonderfully delicate. Though the oldest of that big family of boys that makes up the first household /of Germany, this thirtccn-ycar-  old has not nearly thc vital force, the  dash and thc audacity that his brother  next in ago, Eitel, possesses. Eitel is  his superior in general health, weight  and height, and the general impression  in Germany is that Eitel will be the  next Emperor.  It is noticeable among those who  have seen the boys playing together  that Eitel quite appreciates his greater  power of body: He is a splendid specimen of young German, tall, vigorous  and strong of arm and leg, while young  William is'almost weak and puny beside him, thin ant}, narrow chested ancl  easily tired.  Belgium is ruled over to-day by Leopold II., born in 1835, a still ��������� vigorous  middle-aged man. lie shows no sign  of breaking down, and is one of the  healthiest sovereigns of Europe. Prince  Philippe, Count of Flanders, his brother,  and two years younger, has for a score  of years lieen incurably deaf, and is the  most of tho time/ in wretched ' health.  Prince Philippe is heir to the throne,  from tho fact that Leopold II. has no  sons. ' .    ,  .So far as great Uritain i.s concerned,'  it has often been remarked that 'lf.R.

The. lale Ki'npeior Alexander 111. was  deeply attached to the Mjcond .sou. Thc  stern ruler of the Russias loved this  boy more than he did his heir,' Nicholas, more than all else in the world.  The Czarevitch had a' terriblo fall  from the maintop of a ship to the deck  during the trip around the world of the  three princes (himself, the present Czar  and ' Prince George of Greece) in (he  summer of 1891. This fall seriously injured George's spine, and he had to" discontinue his trip and return home. Then  consumption, a malady now hereditary  in thefamily of the Romanoffs, set in.  In vain he sojourned in Athens and Algiers. Finally he settled down in the  Caucasus, where he has lived since the  close of 1892.  After the late Czar's death his condition grew rapidly worse. ��������� Late this  spring ne, expressed a strong desire to  see once more the Palace of Peterhof,  where he had been brought up. The  change of climate proved serious for  him^ especially as the Peterhof palace  at tha,t time had fallen into an unsanitary condition. Ho then was' taken  to 'Denmark to visit his grandfather,  King Christian. The climate of Denmark proved quite as dangerous for him  as the cold of Northern Russia, and  materially hastened his coming death.  AUSTRIA'S CONSUMPTIVE PRINCE.  While the Czarevitch is to-day the  foromest invalid in Europe, attention is  being directed'more and more, towards  Duke Francis < Ferdinand of Austria.  The story of tho Hapsburgs, the royal  house of this empire, has been unhappy,  for epilepsy has pursued the entire  family and seized many of its members. In 1888 every,one of ninety-eight  arohdukc and archduchesse of this  family had that dread disease in some  form or other.  That consumption should havo seized  Francis Ferdinand, who, since thc  death of Rudolph, has been the idol of  the Austrian people, is remarkable, for  his life has been a vigorous one. For  years' he has been an untiring officer in  the Austrian army, and noted for his  skill and endurance. 'He1 spends the  days sitting silently in a tent pitched  in a'little garden on the Bay of,Cigala.  His sole amusement is looking out upon  the sea, save on' the infrequent days  when he takes a short donkey ride. lie  will spend the winter in Egypt, and he  may never   return from   that country.  It seems to bo general debility that  is gradually sapping away the life of  young Victor, Emanuel, ' Prince of Naples. Of late ho has been cruising about  thc Levant in hopes of getting strength.  Though very_ young���������he was born -in  1809���������this prince has made himself a  distinguished person in Italy. His  --greatest popularity has been, not.  among his own'people, but in the foreign colonies of Naples and Rome,  where he' has cut a wide swath among  thc pleasure-loving higher class of, those  merry Italian cities., ��������� ,���������    '  POLAR NIGHT TERRORS-  ' , c  UArlinniH   I������ro!ouii<l anil   Cold   Inli-iipc in  Arnlltt ICf-uluim. ^  Constantin    Nossiioff,    reporting    in  "La Tour de Monde" his scientific researches in Nova Zcinbia, furnishes an  ini cresting description of his sensations  and experiences during the long arctic  night which began in November and  ended January 20. September was  pretty .comfortable, he says. Then  suddenly snow covered the mountains.  The Samoycdcs, his only,, companions,  put on their winter clothing, the fi.sh-'  ing'boats, set sail fort Archangel, the  ground froze, the sun lost'its warmth  and heavy snows fell. ' Winter had  come in earnest. ,On,the day when the  sun showed itself for the last time' all  hands went out. of doors to bid it farewell. It remained in sight for half,an  hour only. For a icw days longer there  was a morning twilight. , Then this  faded and gave * place to black night.  The stars shone the whole 2-1 hours.

Many of the. soldiers now doing  duty' accompanied Sir Garnet, now, ,  Lord, Wolseley' when ho led an expedition inland from the coast and burned  Coomassie, the capital of Ashantee, ,  twenty-one years ago. -  This Grove of Skulls, as it has been  called,    Ls'thc place where most of tho  victims of tho King arc put to death.,;  Upon the, occasion' of thc death of Kin?  Koffee, the-King ofciAshantco whom Sir ,  (Jarncl  Wolseley thrashed, there were"  2,000 people killed in' this grove in   accordance with the' Ashantco ' superstition which demands that when members  of the royal family die their souls must  havc a large guard of honor.

Thousands of ,  ..   HELPLESS NEGROES    ���������  are believed to have been put to death  by this sanguinary monarch during the   -  past year merely to gratify a  passing  whim or to strengthen him in his power  ���������  through    the   fear   which   these widespread murders arouse among Jiis subjects. t t  Prempeh has, 3,333,, wives,, a golden  .stool in place of a throne, an umbrella  of state and an old plug.hat which he  wears instead of n, crown;' but' the  queerest'of all his possessions is' the  Grove of Skulls. He, keeps this placo  guarded day aud night and seems to  regard it with a superstitious reverence.  The vultures   whioh, fat and gorged  with   (human    flesh,    roost among  its ������  branches    or    flop    helplessly , on  -the '  ground, are held us sacred, and to touch  one of them would moan death.   For the  slightest of   offenses men are tortured  and    beheaded    in  this dreadful place.  The man v. h ) looks at one of thc King's'  3,333    wives   (they   occupy    two , whole  streets of Cooinassie)   is   at once taken '  out to the Grove of Skulls and killed.  Thc friends no less than the enemies  of the King arc bore beheaded, for it is  ono of his pleasing customs to suspect  his friends of getting up conspiracies,  against him, and he rids himself of '  them by a wave of his hand. ^ Some of  his wives hc has had beheaded, and not *  long ago he is alleged to havo chopped  off the heads of eighteen mothcrs-in-  Iaw.

'  The, stench of the place Ls .something  awful. ��������� ....  Henry il. Stanley, when ho visited  this place during the expedition to Cooinassie, in 1874,-says that he had to hold  a handkerchief to his- nose, and. could  only stay   there a few ininul.es.-,  " As we drew near," says Stanley in  his book about Cooinassie, "tho foul  smell became so/suffloating that wo  wore glad to produce our handkerchiefs  to prevent the intolerable and almost  palpable odor from mounting into the  brain and overpowering'us. After some  thirty paces we arrived before the  dreadful scene, but it was almost impossible to stop longer than to take a  general view of the great Golgotha. We  saw some thirty or forty decapitated  bodies in the last stages of corruption,  and countless skulls which lay piled in  heaps and scattered over a wide extent.  The stoutest heart and most stoical  mind might have  been appalled."  Officers of the British Army, who visited thi.st grove in numbers, described  the awful scene in letters to friends  and relatives at home, many of which  were printed. Several photographs wero  I aken of the place, showing King lv.of-  fee's victims lying on top of the countless bones of the 'victims of previous  kings. , ,  When the King of Ashanlee orders  official sacrifices, as many as 20,000 of  the ignorant and  BRUTAL SAVAGES  ��������� who form his subjects gather in the  grove to witness the ceremony. The vie- '  liias arc brought to the place with their  hands securely tied, and they arc made  dumb by two knives thrust crosswise  through "their cheeks.  Then these poor wretches are lor-  tured by being pinched, pricked with  swords iiiid fired upon at short range  with blank cartridges, the powder coloring the flesh and causing excruciating agony.     .  The executioners arc powerful brutes,  fantastically .clad. Thoy seize huge  swords, which they flourish in the air,  lopping off the heads of the victims-one  after another. Then they retire from  I.he scene, drenched with blood, Icavmj  lhe victims lying where they fell.  The vultures then swoop down from  (he trees above, the jackals and other  boasts emerge from the forest jung o,  and the night is made hideous by tho  snarling and fighting over the remains.  It was one of thc stipulations made by  Sir Garnet Wolseley at, this time I hat *  the King of Ashantee should ceaSc these  human .--aorifires. Koffno promised thnt  the useless putting to death of innocent  people, as well as the torturing of criminals, should come to' an end.  Although thc conquest of Ashanlee,  which the British now have.undertaken,  will be expensive, it',wi 11, doubtless bo  thorough, an'd when!the-troops pot to  Cooinassie again it would be a good idea  for them not only to burn that town but  to burn and destroy thc Grove of Skulls  as well.  ��������� ..-������������������ iji<   Prof. Draper says that -,b-, descendants of a single pair of wusjii* may be  numbered, as high as 20.OBA *Jf.- -vue uei)-  son.  ^mssB^msss^^Bs^msssssts^  SKEB-SHS^^  ESTJFKff  *JT(Vli- **  AN EXPERIENCE.  It"  h  fa  Of all the, hardened, obstinate unbe-  * llevcre as regarded anything approaching supernatural visitations our uncle  Bayle was surely the climax.   He would  . not ������ven admit that there might be  even the faintest truth in any of the  theories of spiritualists. It was of no  nso arguing:'.with him, for he always  finished up with what he no doubt  considered  as  final: , ,  " I tell you there are no such things  ts spirits; I clon't believe "in them and  never shall."  " But, uncle," I persisted, for, I had  1    been   reading some  wonderful, psycho^  'logical'literature, "you do not believe  . In them  localise, you have never hap1-  pened to havo any  experience of    the  kind���������"  " Oh, haven't I, though ?   I expect an  experience I once had would have been  enough  to  convince    you "a   hundred  times over, and your hair would   have  atood on end for the rest of your ..life."  "Oh, do tell us about'it I" I exclaimed, eager to have sohio fresh'proof to  fcdd  to  those  I had  already  collected.  " Well,"  began   my  uncle,' leisurely,'  ' and  looking very   solemn all at' once,  " it  was  about  forty  years  ago    that  thia happened,  so I' should  be    about,'  twenty then. It was In the autumn and  just, getting  dusk   and   I was   on   my  way home from Toulouse.   I was pretty tired, for I had been riding nearly'  ,   all day, ai^when I reached Auterrivo  aome friends I knew there wanted me  to break my journey  and put  up   at  their house for the night.   I did ,not*  accept their invitation, as I,wanted to  '   get as 'far  as  Saverdun. ' ,'  ��������� " Well, I went on through . the Se-  courien woods and had come out just  near tho Bolbourne monastery, when a'  terrible thunderstorm commenced. It  was ono of those fearful storms which  come on so suddenly without any warning whatever in tho neighborhood' of  our mountains. I should most certainly have, asked for shelter at the-monastery until it was over, but that my  horse, taking fright at the vivid flashes  of lightning, suddenly set'off at a full  gallop down a narrow pathway to, the  left "and Ln spite of all my efforts I  , could not stop him. '       '  ,,  " As we went tearing along I discovered that he was taking me _in the  ' direction of the- littlo village of Sainte  Gabeile.,, On, on , wo flew, until at  length, 'as the storm began -to abate,'  my horse slackened his������ pace and when  we came to tho little inn I was able to*  draw him up, for I wanted to'dismount  and', have some' refreshment.  "On entering the iron parlor I found  it was full,of travelers, who, like myself, was'surprised, by the storm*. Thero  w.ere'some Spaniards, some merchants,  and" a fair  number  of  sportsmen,  and  before we ' had  finished.   drying    our-  , rselves at the crackling wood fire sup-  , per was announced.   We all sat, down  - together at a long table and the conversation naturally fell on the fearful  6torm we, had just had.   One man had  * been thrown from his horse; another  had been an hour getting ��������� his cart  wheels out of a regular bog; every  one,had some adventure to relate, aud  we all abused the  weather heartily.  " It's beastly,' exclaimed  one. '  . , "'Yes- and with such wind, too,'  said another ; ' it's regular witches'  weather,, ���������   t  " There was nothing much in such  an expression,' but it gave rise to a  strange remark from another man,delivered in a still stranger and more  peculiar  tone.  "' Witches, and indeed all kinds of  supernatural  visitors,  prefer  a ,-peacC'  curious to see how the affair would end  and several other, men feeling the samej  curiosity  offered    to     make     up    the  amount.  " The Spaniard, looking as though he  felt no doubt as to tho result or the  extraordinary wager, handed over his  money to the young student. ' -  " The next thing was to proceed with  the experiment.. The landlord of the inn  suggested that it should take place in  a summer house at the end of the garden, where there would be no risk of  our  being  disturbed.'  " We examined every corner , of this  out-door building carefully, so that  there might be ��������� no ' trickery. It  was just a room with one window,  which was shut close, and a door. A  pencil and paper were placed on' the  table, the young man wont - in alone,  and then, shutting the door to, we all;  remained  outside.  " Wc were all in spite of any skepticism* we might feel, vory much interested, and there was ' perfect silence , as we waited to see what was  going to happen. Presently the Spaniard, who was at the door with us,  began to chant in a slow, melancholy  tone the following words:  '*' Willi a creaking noito iho coOln burste its  . lid. ,       - '  Tlie grave is open, too.   The stiect re cries;  "Tlio grave Ih opon, tho gravo Is open!"     ,  A erc.iUiiijt noiKe is heard, is licard ;  The coltln lid is bur-r iibiinder;  A phantom 11-Oh from il,. priiion houso   ' ,  And filep-out on iho cold, wet gru������������.'  1   "There was a dead-silence for a minute, and then the Spaniard said,  in a  loud, solemn voice, ' Xou wished to see  your friend, Francois Vialat, who was  drowned about three years ago I What  do you seo now V  '"I can sec a white, misty light  near the window," answered tho student ; ' it has no form, though, and  looks more like a cloud tb������an anything  else.' '  " Wo wero all stupefied with astonishment.  "' Has it alarmed you V asked thc  Spanaird. ' . > '  "'No, not at' all,'.replied tho student, without' a shade of fear or hesitation in his voice. , r  " We were holding our breath with  excitement. Thc Spaniard then stamped on the ground threetimes, and after  another minute's silence began to chant  again, this time more solemnly - and  slower than  before:  " 'Th'o white phantom movoB, the white phan-  ���������, toni moves, ,  And shakes tlio damp' from his hair.  And   (.hakes   the, damp   from  his ,clinging  ,    shroud.'  ''"Once more 'there was silence and  then the Spaniard, in a more solemn  voice,  asked: _    -  "' You, who havo thus wished to  know tho mysteries'of tho tomb, what  do you see?' . ' '  "Wo all. listened anxiously for the  student's answer. He spoke very deliberately, and it was evident that'_ he  was describing ,whal was just taking  place, phase after phase'-  ".'The vapor ���������is rising and getting  longer and longer���������it has now taken  the form ,of a pnahtom���������there Ls a veil  over the phantom's,- face���������it is standing there quite still just in the place  where it rose  from  tho  ground.'

He was now  waving his hands over hLs head ,in the  most frantic manner, and- afterward ho  called some s ��������� strange, weird-sounding  name' three times, and finished by  chanting Ln a much louder, voice than  before:       , ��������� ���������.    <>���������  " 'Tho phantom   said as   he'  rose   from  his  grave  " I will appoar.before my friend.  And ho will know me, he will know me ;  Ho,will recognizo his fi-iend."  ���������  " There  was  silence' again,   and  the  Spaniard , asked  once  more :  " ' What do you see now ?'

Ho was a Span-  Lard, a regular gypsy-looking fellow,  strong, swarthy, with black hair and  eyes, gold rings in his ears, and he  was dressed in 'a rough suit, leathern  gaiters and a red cloaTk. Ho had spoken with such conviction that every ono  ��������� 'was taken aback and there was silence  for a minute, until a young man who  was sitting next me and who had a  very frank, honest expression, burst  out laughing and exclaimed:  ,  " 'Well,   that's  good I   Do  you  mean  to say,   though,   that    they   have   told  you about their habits and tastes���������and  'v    is it really a fact  that  they object to  getting  wet and  muddy ?���������'  " He   had   not   quite   finished' speaking when the Spaniard turned on him  -   fiercely,  saying:  "' Young  man,  I  advise  you  not to  Bpeak so lightly about things of which  '   you  know nothing.' ���������  "'Do you mean*to say that you want  mc to believe in spirits and���������*  "' I might if I thought you had enough courage to evcn'^look at them,  supposing -they should appear to you���������'.  ��������� " Thc young man' sprang from his  chair, furious and "crimson with indignation, then, suddenly, mastering his  angcr,  he said sarcastically:  "'You would have paid for insulting mc in that way if it had not all  been   fools'  nonsense,  " ' Fools' nonsense I' exclaimed the  Spaniard, jumping up and striking the  table with his clenched fist. ' Cook,  hero,' and ho threw a ' thick leathern  . money bag onto the table. ' There are  thirty quadruples there, and I will,risk  loosing them if, within an hour from  now, I do not lot you sec tho face of  any of your friends, oven if they have  been dead for ten years, and if, after  recognizing them,, you dare touch them  or let them touch you���������why, thc money's yours.' The Spaniard looked so  terrible as ' ho uttered these words,  that, in spite of ourselves, wo all felt  awed. Thc young man, however, still  kept up his mocking air as hc answered :  "'Ah, you think you could do that,  do you ?'  "'Yes, I do,' said the Spaniard, 'and.  I will bet this bag of money on it, but  you  must  bet  the  same  amount,  and  ' if 1 do.as 1 say I shall win it.'  " The" young man was silent for a.  moment, ancl then hc said, still in the  same  nlocking   lone:  " ' Thirty quadruples is a big sum'  for a noor devil of a student to possess. ' haven't the amount, but, If  you like lo bet' five, why, here's my  money.  '  'The Spaniard picked his leathern  bag up and put it silently back in his''  pocket.  "'So you want to back out, do you?'"  be  said,  scornfully.  " ' Baciv.- out I   No.   indeed,   I don't.  If  I owned   the  thirty  quadruples    you'd  Boon .see whether I wouldn't ii.sk tliem.'  "'Wdii.   I'ii   fi,,.!   you   four,'   I    said,"'  terrible silence and then the ' student  replied, in a voice which this time was  just as loud but scarcely as firm as before :  " ' No; I am not at all afraid  "This time .the Spaniard almost  yelled as hc waved his hand about in  the air, and then, suddenly dropping  his voice,  he chanted very slowly:  ,' ' Thophantom Knid to ihe youiiij man  "Comooloser, come closer, my friend;  Give 1110 your hand and put your iiiigeru so  'warm,  Into my cold, clammy ones��������� '   -  '1 want, to touch you, my friend, my friend."

" He strode off abruptly, leaving us  all stunned, as it were, with astonishment. We opened the door of the summer'house and there, unconscious and  lying on thc floor, wc found the young  student. He soon came to himself as  wo struck a light and lifted him on  to a bench.  " On the table was the name ' Fran'  cois Vialat' scrawled across it. As soon  as ever the student began to realize  all that had happened hc vowed that  he would kill tlie wretched man who  made him go through such horrible  torture.

'  Winter Stable Management of Cows  Arrange the stable with convenience  in feeding and - care of the stock as  the central idea, writes Chas. L. Hill-  Visit the best dairy barns and utilize  all #their good points. A stable . having  two thicknesses of boards', with tar paper between Ls dryer and warmer than  a stone basement. A rectangular barn,  with two long rows of cows facing each  other, is the most desirable.' Have; sufficient room for driving on the feeding  floor and also behind each row of animals, for removing the manure. Make  the' building larger than is needed, or  plan so that additional room1 can be  easily provided. , By all means have a  silo'1 conveniently situated.' Put in  plenty of. windows. Tho south side  of our barn is largely glass. Tlie stable  must, be tightly made so that when the  temperature is 30, degrees below zero  very little freezing occurs on the in-  ,side. Don't, however, keep it so warm  that it will fairly, steam when the  doors are opened. For keeping the, air  pure, box ventilators reaching from  near the floor to the roof, are excellent.  They can be made by boarding up between the silo studs down to within,a  foot or two of the floor. <Choose  some kind of. a fastener that,,will keep  the cows clean! The stanchion is most  generally used, and will answer in most  cases. Arrango the floor 4 to 5 feet  in length as there will be that much  difference Ln length between the smallest heLfer and the aged cow. Let the  gutter be IG Ln. wide and C in. deep.  If possible have the walk behind the  gutter, wide enough to allow a wagon  or sled to be drawn over it. Make the  manger 24 in. wide and the feeding floor  6 in. above it' The ceiling should be  0 1-2 or, 7 feet high.  Among    the    necessary    implements  about a cow stable Ls 'the r-broom.   Get  two,  one  for sweeping   the  feed  floor  and the other to clean the walk, behind  the gutter.     Keep the floor clean, and  occasionally go over'the ,walls and ceiling to remove dust' and cobwebs. .Use  plenty  of straw for  bedding. -If  it  is  cut, so much the better, as it is  then  superior as an absorbent.,    Be sure thc  gutter is water tight, and use road dust,  sifted coal ashes, sawdust or land plaster, to absorb the liquid the straw does  not take up.     Plaster Ls also first class  for keeping down bad odors.   Sprinkle  a'few pounds in the tedding before each  milking   and  note  tho  effect.   It  will  also enhance the value of the manure.  Have regular hours for  feeding -and  milking   and   rigidly   adhere   to   them.  Plan your work so the cows can be left  to their dreams a part of the time:   Be  kind to them ; do nothing that will excite them, for it will always result, in  a loss of milk.   Salt every day, or better still, have salt whore they, can have  constant   access   to, it.'^Our  cattle  are  out of the barn a short time each 0 day.  They go about 60 rods and get water  from a  spring  and I  have seen ,no  ill  effects   from   it.     .However,   they   are  not out long���������not over 30 or 40 minutes  on .stormy  days.

While a few degrees of frost is not injurious, extreme freezing would be, so  that the covering would be sufficient  to, prevent it. At the same time, the  ground should not be so warm as to  stimulate active growth, which is injurious. ' To prevent this tho trench  should be ventilated by putting a small  bundle of straw LnC'the center of it  before,covering, so that thc warm moist  air from below may escape. ��������� In this  trench the plants will make a slow  growth the entire winter, and when  taken out in spring and transferred to  the field will make a rapid growth,  perfecting the heads in two weeks less  time than those from hotbeds' or oold  frames. ,  CHE MISSED, THE FIRE.

'"What's the matter with papal!*'  she cried. ,  "Sh-h-hl" they said,'softly. "Heis  asleep, darling. , ,  "Why does he lie in that ugly old  box %" .������  "He can sleep better there, little one.  Don't disturb him. Now, go back to  bed, like a good little girl."      ,;  The'child moved away slowly. '  " Good-night, papa," she said, in a low  voice, and soon was tucked away again.  The silence of tho night was suddenly  startled' by the" harsh clangor of the  gong in the fire house, just a few doors  aw^y^-as it sounded the alarm. .  lhe thrilling call was ringing the  second time when the fireman's daughter flew into the room again. ��������� Again  she climbed upon the'xhair and shook  her father's body'by the shoulder.  "Wake up, quick, papa K' she "said.  "There's a Ore."   ' '  Still  he  did  not move nor open  his  eyes.   The strange look of those  about  the bier frightened-her. .  >-"Oh, papa, , do wake up.     Can't you  hear  the  bell?   You'll  miss  the  fire."  The  baby  looked around  in, wonder.1  Then she tried her parting shot, which  she  was  sure would bring  her  father  quickly to his feet.  "You'll miss the fire," she exclaimed.  "Then  you'll  be fined." 1  Even then he did not move.

Napoleon would be astounded  were he to return to earth and see with  what strides ��������� the science of war has advanced during his, absence. No more  could his heavy, battle columns be successfully launched; no more could Mu-  rat, his magnificent pavalry leader, ride  over an army with hLs daring horsemen.  Ln place of tho grand and picturesque  bayonet charge wc have thin skirmish  lines, seeking 'to crush the enemy with  their fire alone, and' modern cavalry  will probably never again charge on the  battlefield.  To begin with, it is assumed by military authorities at present that the  occupation' of ' territory " by a hostile  army will be such a crushing burden  that wc must prevent it at all hazards.  The first and, perhaps, the decisive battle of the war will therefore take_ place  as soon and as near the frontier as  .possible. Where this frontier, as in  most European countries, is merely a  line ou the map, and,,is not a natural  obstacle, the commander-in-chief will  probably set his forces in motion for  it as soon after tho declaration of war  as is possible.  His army will be preceded by  great  CLOUDS OF CAVALRY,  pushed forward both to reconnoitre and  to hold back the advanced bodies of tho  enemy., In'addition to this, his'screen  of cavalry will serve to conceal tho  movements of his main bodyt from thc  enemy. Skirmishes between' the advanced cavalry of the two armies will  be of frequent occurrence. At last  one of the commanders, not wishing to  advance further without accurate information, and prevented from obtaining this'by the enemy's cavalry screen,  will make arrangements for breaking  through this screen. Concentrating his  own cavalry, he will'launch it at some  weak point in the enemy's mounted advance guard.  r' If the attack is kept secret it probably  will succeed with case; if the enemy is  warned in time, he, too, will concentrate, and a great cavalry' battle will result. The victor in the engagement  will succeed in obtaining all the information, ho'desires, while , tho defeated  cavalry will fall back 'on their main  body of infantry. Thus will end tho  first phase of a modern war  The    two commanders  now " havc a  Selection of Apples for Planting.  In the selection of varieties of apples  for planting a commercial orchard, the  wants of the market where the fruit  is to be sold requires consideration. ^ In  localities near to large towns where  usually a quick and steady market! can  be. found for summer and auLumn apples, early varieties will be found most -  profitable,for the reason that early varieties come into bearing young; are more  productive, and are ��������� handled with less  trouble and expense. Early sorts are  quickly perishable and cannot be- held  over for future sales as readily as winter varieties, in case of a glut in (tho  market.  Few varieties of apples have   a'wide  general    adaptation'  for ���������   commercial  planting.     The intending planter of an  orchard can do no better than consult  his  neighbors   who  are  practical  fruit  growers   and   find  out   what   varieties  succeed best and pay the most dollars  with1 them.   Sometimes a variety with  only a   local     reputation,   known   only  within a   limited    range  of    territory,  succeeds  far  better within   its - range  than any of the standard sorts.    Where  such   varieties    have been  well  tested  and can'"be obtained, plant a fair proportion of them.   As a rule,  it is  better   to   purchase  nursery   stock   propo-  gated as near as possible (other conditions , being equal)  to  the, place where  it' is  to be finally planted.   It    sometimes  requires a  number  of  years  for  young trees to recover, if they ever do  fully,  from 'abrupt changes  in climate  and soil.      If trees are to be procured  from a    distance   it   is   better  to   buy  those grown   farthest to  the  north' in  preference to those grown to thc south.  Buy   nursery   stock  direct   from   the  grower when possible, as there is less  likelihood of getting varities not true  to name.   Varieties sometimes get unaccountably mixed and mistakes often  occur  with  the most carefuL nurserymen.      When stock passes through the  hands of one or more dealers who generally know  little and care less about  names, the danger is still greater.   Insist on receiving the varieties ordered  and do not let the nurseryman substitute  some  other    variety;  ' equally  aa  good' that you know nothing about, for  nine times out of ten it will be   a sort  that  nobody   cares   to  know  anything  Shopping Bag*.  in position, unless with immensely preponderating numbers, is bound to result in a disastrous repulse'.-* The at-  Cut two pieces of black satin or heavy tacking commander will, therefore, seek  black silk, each piece fourteen inches to extend his line ,in one or both diking.
