A new process of handling zinc ores  has been devised by which, instead of  trying to make a matte which carries  tbe metal, the inventor fuses both the  zinc and the lead. ,. The metals are  carried off in the form of funics, which  are afterwards collected in bags.  J. Cronin, of the"' St. Eugene, has  been lo Mexico looking into silver-  lead mining, lie says the mines there  are no better than in 13. C, but cheap  labor enables them to be worked on  low prices for silver and lead. lie  thinks a rise in tariff 'will help the  industry in Canada.  The Laborer's Cooperative Association are reported lo havo 100 tons  of(orc mined at the Good Luck on  Canyon Creek, near Golden, and they  are working on two feet of solid ore.  This ore is being got out for the  Vulcan smelter, which the company  expects to operate shortly.  The continued decline in the price  of silver causes considerable' comment  in the financial circles. Accoiding lo  the best in foi mod sources, it is regarded as being dir. ctly due to China's  flooding the market willi silver in,the  payment of the indemnity to the  powers. The .Siamese government  had inslructe.i (he mint tu cease immediately the free coinage of silver,  ' Rambler-Cariboo stock , slumped  from 80 cents to 30 cents. All  kinds of rumors are afloat but  the one most generally credited is,  says llie Spokane Spokesman-Review,  that the mine is in such shape as to  make necessary tlio suspension of  dividends for a while at least. 'J'he.  concentrator has been closed for  two months and the mine is shipping  only crude ore.   ,    ���������  Uyron White, and others, who are  well' acijuaintcd with the Slocan,  estimated (bat within two years the  combined production of zinc ore of a  high enough grade for shipment  should be 7f),00() tons per annum, or  over 0,000 tons per month. The  Kansas zinc company can take three  times as much if it can be produced.  A 'duty on lead contents is imposed by  the Stales of Ll cents per pound.

Zhc Ikootena^ fifoail  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1002.   '  More lighting is required on  Third Street, which is at. present  difficult to'traveron a' dark,, night.  As that is the street on which tho  Presbyterian and Methodist  churches are located there is much  traffic on the sidewalk. of that  street, especially on Sunday nights.  The city has a valuable piece xoi  land on the north side of the track  at the west end that can and should  be 'Turned to account. This land  was reserved by the Dominion' government as a park for the city. If  .the city called applications for the  lease of it, subject to improvements,  we are satisfied'it would be taken  up and improved and a good road  built to it by the lessee. The day  is not far distant when this reserve  wili'be a valuable adjunct of the  citv.-  .An amendment of the law is  urgently required by. which persons  wrongfully accused of crime shall  be compensated by the state for  any expense to which they are put  in   defending   themselves.      Onlvj  THE POST-OFFICE  '   The Truth About the Surplus.  Recently at Toronto, Sir Wm. Mui-  ock announced for the first time in  the history of the country the post-  ollic'e accounts showed a surplus of  revenue over' expenditure. lie  carefully explained that both the  revenue and expenditure on account  of the Yukon and Allin postal  services were excluded from his  calculations. liis object in doing  so was quite clear, says the Toronto  Globe, which adds:  He was making comparisons between his management of, the  department and that of his predecessors. In the fiscal year 1890,  wilh which Mr.' Mulock's comparisons were made, there was virtually  no postal service into the Yukon or  Atlin, As there were no such  expenditures in 18%. the only way  in which a fair comparison can be  miulo between it and the years  since that extraordinary expenditure began is lo excludetbeamount  from' consideration for the time  being.  Ijefore tho3 late gpvernmunt retired from ollice there was quite  an active agitation forlhc reduction  of domeslic'poslage. In his budget  speech in 189(3  Mil. K0ST1CK  "  answered this agitation as follows :  "Ln the,'post-office we have an  increased estimate, of $240,780,  which is a large increase. The demands for tho opening up of new  lines, aud for greater frequency  and greater thoroughness are continually pressing , upon the post-  ollicc department, and a large  expenditure has necessarily to be  made if we are to keep at all even  with the requirements of tlie times,  which'wc a're bound to'clo. There  is now a deficit of somewhere near  ���������1*800,000 between the total receipts  and total expenditures of/our post-  office service; and <this, I fear,  makes the time somewhat distant  when what otherwise might be  fairly asked for can be granted���������  tbatis, a reduction upon the urates  of postage in this country. Considering the large extent of country,  the sparseness ,of tbe population  uwl the great expense necessarily  imposed for carrying letters and  papers in our .Northwest and in  other parts of tbe country, there is  no doubt- that the carriage oi  letters, ncwspape^^trid parcels in  this country is cheaper, for ' the  population than you would probably find in any other countrv in  the wo,rld."  When Sir'William Mulock not  only reduced the domestic postage  rate bv one-third; but also reduced  ocean postage from five cents lo  two cents for single lettei rates,  '     SIR CHAS. TUI'l'l-K  prophesied that he would increase  the defieir by a' million dollars a  year'.    Sir William's answer to this  what  Mr! Foster declared to be impossible  but be  has,   moreover,   converted  Mr. Fostei's if800.000 deficit into   <f  surplus of ���������$0,000.  A glance through the medical  literature of tbe Inst twenty years reveals to tbe close observer a remarkable diversity of opinion among aur-  ists as to what constitutes tbe proper  method of treatment for deafness and  diseases of the ear. Some authorities  recommend, in obstinate case*, cutting away of the drumhead of the car,  other aural surgeons arc emphatic in  saying that the results obtained are  too uncertain to'justify such severe  measures. Anotherciassot medical men  base tbe treatment of deafness almost  entirely on the application of medicated Vapors forced througlr'the nose  ii;to the middle ear by way of Kusta-  ehian tube, but it is strange to find  these same aurists acknowledging, in  tlieir 'writings on this sulijcct that it  i^ doubtful if medication applied in  this way'can reach the seat of the disease which cause's defective hearing.  Jn   tbe midst, of all this doiibl   and   r lh,a h(J had not on]y donc  uncertainty   there is   lorlunatcly the  record   of tbe discovery  of a   rational  ^method, the, Drouet Treatment,,, of  treating Deafness anil ear diseases,  which depends upon the scientific  fact that the skin possesses the property of absorbing certain drugs applied  to its surface and ni conveying them  by   means   oi   its ' underlying- blood  vessels to the adjacent diseased   p.irts.  Jn   this method a box containing   the  necessary medicines is   applied behind |  the   ear" and the   medication,   being'  absorbed   by, the skin, penetrares   to  the middle and   inner car., where the,  effcets are exerted: To this simple cur-_  alive pioceclure is subjoined, according :  to the  merits of each individual   case.  such antiseptic medication ?.*;��������� v.:<- ear.  nose or throat as may be needed.  Like all innovations   this treatment  ii.is   received the severest  criticisms,  but. notwithstanding such opposition.  ten years test of the met lied has given  results so emphatically successful th-.u  tlie usual medical opinions on tIncurability of deafness lime b-.-ou completely overthrown;    Jn tlie long   li.-t  oi cases which, after i-eina pinnouncid  incurable   by   aural    surgeon'-,   h.!\e  been   reported   cured by  the    Drouet  Treatment, there aie so many in.-t.vncL--  of, recovery of - hearing in     -uiv-med  age, after 1:"), "20, ur   even   ."Jd.viai.-   oi  defective   hearing, and in  tii��������� - f.ic>���������   of  the worst forms ol e.i; di.-ea.-". t'n it tne  victim of ile:'.i'iH--s iimi.- icnewi.l hop'v  Those   who   wi.-h     m    ih-'n-u^bly  the   DruUi-t   method    '<i  recentiv .].

To the north lies the Big Bend  country, 60 miles away, with ' its  placer mines which have yielded  great wealth for' half a century.  This is now being developed for  other mineral values and is proving rich in'silver, lead, copper,  mica and coal,.besides gold quartz  ledges, as . well as " .undeveloped  placer fields. At present the city  has a population of 2,500 and the  last few years the railroad has  developed some extensive yards  and repair shops have .been built j  there. ' "This ,has drawn the  town almost ' completely away  from its old site and developed a new , community much  more substantial and better laid  out than the former site.

When the door. was  opened in rolled Perry, soaked and  bespattered from foot to head'.  -Where ish Gol'feel's sidewalk,"  he shouted., "Gol'feel's got a' have  a sidewalk. She ish big 'nuff. I'm  Ma\ or of Gol'feel's an'I can't fin'  her' sidewalk. Come 'long and  ' show vou to me Gol'feel's sidewalk."'  The good Samaritan who had  . opened the door quietly dressed and  went out into the storm and showed  the Mayor the place where the sidewalk-ought to be. It led to the  door of Ferry's home. The Samaritan pushed it open and guided the  Mayor to a chair, which could be  seen in the breaking dawn., Then  he went back lo the ho'.cl and the  night of welcome ended.  During the remaining time of  the visit Perry strengthened the  friendship which he had formed at  the first meeting. The men all  liked him.' They could not help it.  He was one oi nature's true noblemen. Hone*-!, affectionate, sympathetic, roughshod and sincere, no  one wlio'ever met Perry can forget  him.  "  W. ll.'i'UUl. ?-iVKi.COJ!i'!,   W. B. I'ool, in whose honor Pool  %creek is named, is one of the leading citizens <*f Comaplix. Hc has  been in the country since pioneer  times and has been a leading spirit  in its development. An accident  on the road delayed the stages  which brought in the last of the  party from the. mines. Its arrival  .was anticipated by Pool, who had  come into town during the day,  and when tlie Michigan visitors  arrived he took it upon himself to  entertain them. The Kootenai had  sounded her whistle of arrival and  by the time llie luggage was out of  the rigs tile vessel was tying up at  the dock. Everyone went aboard  at once. Pool spread a champagne  banquet for the guesU ^Nothing  wns too good for them. The luxuries were limited only by the  supply, and with the Canadian  Pacific to cater there was little likelihood of suffering on that score.  And what had the .Kcvclstpkc'  hoiislers?     Only   a hasty trip to  FIRE VALLEY.  Stock   Shipment    for    Edgewood  Ranch.  Eighty-four head of cattle under  charge of Alexander McLachlan, a  brother of members of the firm of  McLachlan Brothers^' Nelson^liave  been purchased in .county of Renfrew, Ontario,, for ethe "useof the  Edgewood Dairy Company.

Rowland I3riti-iin, Patent Attorney,,  Vancouver, sends thefollowiiiK particulars of patents issued to a liritj=3j  Columbian this week.  ��������� The inventor is J. 1>- Caldwell, of  Vancouver, who has.just received his  U. S. patent?, on an improved bicycle  alarm and s.ced indicating bell, and  on a shingle edging machine. The  last named is 1'kely to prove it particularly useful one in a pro'viiicinl  industry which hns attained ii position  of considerable inip.-.rtnncc. that of  shin-'.lejintnufactuie. This invention  successfully accomplishes what ,��������� has  Jong been attempted, luit hitherto  without practical result, vis., the automatic edging and gauging of shingles,  work , which, when done hy hand,  requires a skilled operator to attain  any speed, and is always a dangerous  employment.  Now, as the shingles come from the  shingle machine they arc'placed hy a  boy ou the feed of the "edger" and the  sides are trimmed square with the butt;  the trimming saws, by an ingenious  mechanism, being, atilomatically adjusted to the greatest width that each  will trim tons a "random". If it is  desired to cut dimensioned or "gunge"  shingles ii series of saws, set. to the  required width apart on ihe same  spindle, will cut the blank "to the  desired width, and the balance will he  trimmed ly the movable saw tons  large a size.as the material will allow.  Messrs. McNair have installed six  machines in their new mill, which is  evidence at once of the requirement  for and the practicability of the .invention. , ' .     ���������  BABY'S OWN TABLETS.  Keep  Little Ones fte/l During  'the  Hot Weather Months.    <*���������  11* you want to keep your little ones  hearty, rosy nnd full of life, during the  hot .weather give- them IJaby'a , Own  Tablets the moment they show, signs  of heing'out of order in any way.'  This 'medicine ���������'cures all form:, of  stomach and bowel troubles, which  carry oil" so many little.ones during  the summer months, and is the best  thing'in the world i fur' sleeplessness,  nervousness, irritation when teething,  etc. It is just the medicine for hot  weather troubles; lirst, because it always does good; and, second, because  it can never do any harm���������guaranteed  free from opiates. Mrs. XV.K. JJassam.  Kingston,;.0nt., says:���������'-J began using  Baby's Own Tablets when my little  girl was about thrcc'montli's old. ' At  that time she had indigestion badly;  she was vomiting and had diarrhoea  constantly and although she had an  apparently ravenous appetite, her food  diet her no g(-od ancl "she was very thin.  Nothing helped her until wc began  giving her Baby's "Own Tablets, but  after giving her these the vomiting  and,diarrhoca'cease'd and she began to  improve almost at once.

Since the end  of August there has been a procession of four-horse teams ha'uling  machinery from Wilmer to the  Iron Cap ' mine on Horse-Thief  creek.

Pudmore. formerly proprietor ot* the  famous K'alemalka hotel at Vernon,  and more recently of the C. J'. R. hotel  at Sieamous. is now in elnirgc of the  Phair at Nelson. Mr. Pudmore says it  -   hi.-  intention    to  Sunday being St. Andrews Day,Rev.  W. 0. Calder celebrated  the anniversary of Scotland's patron saint by taking as his  subject   at   (he   evening  service:���������"Scotland's contribution   to  the religious life of  the world."     He  took as liis tcxtl Peter, chap. 2, v. 9: ���������  ''But  ye are a chosen generation,  a  royal   priesthood,  an   holy   nation, a  peculiar people; that' ye should show  forth the praises   of   him   who   hath  called you out of   darkness   into   his  marvellous light."    This text could be  applied to  that small  island beyond  the ocean, which they called Scotland.  The   peculiai   religious  spirit of the  nation was due to what was known   as  Calvinism, or a supreme faith  in   the  sanctity of the over ruling God which  permeated its life.    They,-! knew  little  of Scotland before   the great' struggle  between church and  slate,   when   tlie  proposal   of   the   Scotch   nobility   to  appropriate the property of the church  of the past was ,mpt   by   the   counter  proposal of Knox thai these revenues  should go lirstly to education,secondly  to the poor, and thirdly lo ' the  ministry.       Knox's., plan    explained   why  Scotchmen      played    an    important  pari  in   the   world's,   history.       JJc  proposed    colleges     in   the    greater  towns and hero and there universities.  His  plan  was  partly realized by the  parish school system.  The present government education  bill proposed ' in , England was- an  attempt "to perch the clergy on (he  shoulders of the people, and to put the  church in the position to aim a blow  at all liberty. King.James'attempt  to force episcopacy on Scotland resulted in the fiity yearsstruggle which  ended in the deposition of James 2nd  and the enthronement of William 3rd.  , Tlie Rev. gentleman reviewed the  names prominent in Scottish religious  history, as Knox, Rutherford, Chalmers, Xorman McLeocl, McChcyuc.  There was no church in advance of the  Presbyterian church in mission work  throughout the world, and its missionary heroes embraced Dud*, 'Gilmour,  the MolVats and Livingston, who gave  South Africa to Britain.

CHAPTER. I.   -  /  ���������  i i  i ,  'fi  A  y  r  c  t\  1 am now eighteen. I am the'last  one "left of Mr. Porters old pupils;  <t they have all'* been "bagged" by  .some grim cuslodian/Muid carried off  I know not whither. Others liave  taken their places, bul I am still  left. For several years past'I have  been growing curious as to whclh-  or-l'liawj any aunl, uncle or guardian; for,, up to the lime of which I  wi-ite, 1 'have never seen or heard of  any relative, nor have 1 tho icast  idea from whom or whence my  yearly stipend is. drawn. Thero is  no longc- any show made of teaching me anything.  A word or two respecting two  people who will greatly influence my  l'uI nro life, and then I will proceed  with my story. -.  Tho first is a very humble personage���������only the servant. "When I ceased to attend the* schoolroom, I was  consigned to the kitchen," and helped  in tho household work, cleaned the  knives'anil llio boots,-and did other  odd jobs. "Martha and I soon became fast friends. Sho was by na-,  ture.a bright, cheerful girl, a nature,  which her now master soon "did all  in his power to repicss; but although  she sobered down considerably,' lie  could never fashion her to his mold  of sanctimonious Jiypocrisy..  Tho second person of whom I must  now speak conjures up a very differ-,  cnt set of images. From the first  moment my eyes fell upon that man,  I fell " a repulsion. ' Wc were at  prayers; .there was a loud imperious  "knock at the street door. Mr. Porter paused, and signed to the servant to (answer the knock.  The next 'moment there entered the  parlor a tall, elegantly'dressed man,  with a   remarkably.   pale    face,  the  pallor oi which was greatly enhanced    by a full,      glossy black beard,  black curling  hair,  and  large  black  ���������eycs.     One  of those strange     shudders,, at which  the superstitious  cry-  out that some one' is walking   over  -their  grave,  ran  through nic  as     I  ���������'looked up at "him.     He stood in the  doorway,, and cast upon the    group  a glance of infinite scorn.  .     "When you have finished your  dc-  ��������� votions,"'he said, with a'sneer,  addressing my tutor,   "I have    , something to say, to you."       '     ,    t * .  The Reverend Oba'diah Porter colored, hesitated for a moment, and  then, rising, said," with his" devotional .whine, ."Wc will ask a blessing'  -upon all,here, and pray no more tonight."  With, an exclamation of conteinpl-  rtious impatience, the stranger, threw  himself upon the sofa, his 'head still  covered. Wc were quickly-.hustled  out of the room, and the tutor and  his daughter were left alone with  his  irreverent'"visitor. rl  , _ More, than a twelvemonth passed  avray before hc came again to the  house with my knowledge. . Thenti  little by l little, he became a . frequent visitor.' 'Hiss .Judith and he  were very frequently together. I  ���������used often"to see them" stroll 'down  the road arm-in-arm; and by ,and by  ' lie paused again, seemingly not  for my answer, but to resolve some  half-determined idea in" his mind.  "Come closer, Silas," hc said, with  the air of a man who lias made up  his mind to make an important communication.  Wondering and half-frightened, I  obeyed.  He leaned forward with his     arms  upon the tabic, and, still fixing   his  snakiHikc eyes upon me, as    though  to read my very soul, ho began in a  low voice:     "l" will tcU.you  all' t  know;  perhaps  that will  help     your  memory.   ��������� Thirteen ' years    ago,     a  middle-aged  woman,  looking , liko_   a  gentleman's  housekeeper,   or     something of that sort, culled here to ask  my terms of taking charge of u, child  of five years old.    Two  days  afterward    she     brought you here.     She  gave the nuino as Ciii-ston, and said  thai you  were      to be culled     Silas  Carston.      The    money     was  to bo  drawn  half-yearly,  of  Messrs.   Foglo  &  Quick,   solicitor.'',   of  Gray's   Inn.  For the sake of     tho precious     soul  entrusted to my keeping, I tried J as  discreetly as possible to glean a lit;  tie more  information;  but she     was  svery close, and 1 could not get even  an address out of hot*.     The money  has always been paid  regularly     to  the day.    Once I called upon Messrs.  Foglc & Quick,     but I found    them  .stiff-necked   men',   of  hard, and  un regenerate hearts.     Two years     ago T  wrote to say that     you had passed  beyond the schoolboy age, 1    wished  for  further instructions.     About     a  week after I- got a short note,   say:"  ing that     you  were still  lo  remain  with' me; 'but as thoy desired     that  you.should not contract idle habits,  1 was to give you some'sort of useful    employment,     in    any     way I  thought best.,   1 have no other communication    from     thcin;    and now  you know as much as 1 do."  He paused: but I could not speak.  "Why,-, don't    you say  something,'  Silas'.'"  he cried,  striking the table  sharply with his fist.  '"What���������what do*  you want-me   to  say. sir?" 1 stammered.        ' ,o  "The truth���������what you know."  "I  don't know anything���������indeed   1  do not."      ,      , .    '    .  There" was ,a savage look, about  him, as though hc would have liked,  to have squeezed something out ot  my throat.'.'Then he"took out" of, ii  desk beside him a small gold" locket,  and passed /.it to* me, .saying: "This  was sewn up'iii your frock.when you  were brought iierc- I" don't think  she who brought you knew anything  about it."    t ,      ,  It "contained the p'orlrait of a very,  beautiful young woman���������a foreigner,  I should have imagined;" dark hair,  olive-tinged complexion; also a lock,  of brown hair; and upon the", back  was engraved the initials, "F. B."  and "K, M.," joined together by' a  true-lover's'knot.      ' ��������� \     A  ."The woman who brought-you  here," he'went on, "was tall and  big-boned; thin, while lips; a nose  like a 'parrot's' bonk; * light gray  eyes, as "cold as stone. She wore a  front of dark brown hair, dressed in  small  Hat  curls,   ancl  bound    'round  place In inexperienced hands,"- he  went on, with a snuffle; "but you  have ever walked in the'paths of the  pure-minded, and the precious seed  that I have scattered so plentifully  has not, in your case, fallen amongst  the stones and the brambles."  liy duties as tutor were to commence on the next day. I felt really very grateful to him for what appeared, to my unsophisticated mind,  a great kindness;' and so I told Martha when'I went back toftthe kitchen.  Martha was very blunt, and invariably said whatever came uppermost in her mind. -1  "Well, I don't know about being  grateful. Master Silas," she cried.  "Depend upon it, master's serving  his own turn. Miss Judith's getting  very tired of ' the work, and she's  making up her mind for a certain  event; and if she was to go away,  what would hedo? It wouldn't 'suit  him to have a stranger in the  house. Now, .don't you see that he  couldn't do without you���������that you're  the very thing he wants!"  Martha's worldly view of the matter somewhat dashed , my exalted  feelings of gratitude;, yet, for all  that I felt i, very thankful for the  change.  (To Be  Continued).  DOVES ABE NOT GENTLE.  Owls Are at Home in the   Light  of Day.  Owls aro no' wiser,' for all their  meditative appearand, than "any  other birds���������in fact', they are far below, many, in the scale of intelligence. Another false idea ��������� which  many people entertain concerning  llu.se biro's is' that they arc so confused by sunlight as to be practically blind during the day. Great  horned owls and barn owls are1 the  most, nocturnal -of all ; but even  these can see very distinctly . by  squinting up their eyelids, whi'o the  snowy owls and 'the burrowing owls  are perfectly at home-in the, light of  tho brightest., day,',and many owls  aro lo be* scon Hying and hunting jj)  the sunshine as unconcernedly as any  hawk.       . . -, .

And how  much suffering docs this useless  operation cause,'* 'the tongue" of a  bird being so constantly used ? "  ,. Moves have '"a world-v. ide reputation "for meekness and gentleness,  but, 'if wc except their sad, soft  notes,' and subdued colors, there I's  little to admire about them, for  their' disposition, iii-I,ove and war,  is anything but a gentle one.

The study was a  small back' parlor, into which the  reverend gentleman retired, it was  supposed, to meditate and perform  his ��������� private, devotions; the latter,  Martha used to say, were paid to the  brandy .bottle���������an assertion in some  way confirmed by the very inflammatory appearance'his face usually pre-1  . i-enicd when hc emerged from his  sanctum. Wheii I entered the room  hc bade me shut the door and take a  ��������� seat,  was coming.  ���������'Silas," ho'began, fixing his small,  sharp eyes upon me, and brushing  .the-rebellious hair from his low forehead, "can you remember anything  of your life previous to the time  that Providence .entrusted you to my  keeping?" '  The question was, so sudden' and  unexpected that for a moment T  paused.  lie misunderstood my silence.  "Don't hatch a lie," he said,'  sharply;, "remember the,, fate-of Ananias.",.  "Indeed, sir, I', have vuo' .such  thought,"  I  answered, .meekly.   "He-  bled before those cold,'.stony eyes.

And  true it is that it is difllcult to make  a small hall look Jiko anything more  than a thoroughfare for mere- passing in and out, a/id the worst of il  is that in a way. tho hall furnishes  the keynote to - tho 'house. ' The  visitor ' takes his first impression  from it. . .  A small hall requires but little furniture. Chairs and hall scats , are  not necessary. Hall trees havo "gone  out" along with -marble-topped  tables.' Knowing what is'not wanted  is'*next of course to knowing what is  wanted. Since we, are, to havo so  little in the .way1 ot furniture, we  must pay more 'attention'to the 'paper (and the woodwork.      '  .     '-';  To advise white woodwork in a  hall "is perhaps to fall into condemnation ; yet, nothing.is better for  the small hall, if',-,, properly treated.  Take,^.for. instance, a hall that is- to  be. done in red. The woodwork and  'the stairs 'arc white. ��������� The walls arc  to be,covered.with a figured red paper above a. wainscot <of darker plain  paper or burlaps. Red should predominate in the rug filling.space between the stair and tho. door, and  the stair carpet, "also., in red, should  be laid with brass rods. Iii'Stich . a  hall the only .furniture need be a  table, in mahogany, for hats, gloves,  etc., a mirror, over it, with a brass  frame, if you can.airord it; and a  largo jar or stand ��������� 'for umbrellas.  There should be a "coat closet under  the stairs -in such n hall;, for rubbers, wraps, etc., and" a shelf '"over  the door, on which ii bit of terra  cotta^ - pottery show's to good advantage.   .  A long, narrow hall may be broken  by putting a shelf across it two-  thirds of its length, with a, rotl  underneath from which to suspend  draperies "' \yJiicii , must; - ������oi course,  slide easily on rings. The shelf  should ho two feet below the aver-  ago ceiling, and a few'bits of pottery are effective, on it. Color and  shape ace more essentia) than quality  in such a place. '  Sometimes there is a small, high  window in a hall, in which-case the  tabic may be replaced byva settle-  like seat ������ with a red corduroy  cushion on it, under the window.  In larger, halls the mirror may. be  larger with pegs for "coals and' hats,  and beneath it a seat���������or chest, in  which rubbers', etc.,  arc kept.  Remember," that dull, neutral tones  do not belong to the hall. It should  either be light and cheerful or rich  and  dignified in treatment.  'J'he fashion1 of having reception-  halls, with fireplace, mantel , and  other features which tend to elaboration is to be commended, but if  such a,room must also be, the family  sitting room, don't clo 'it. The hall  is the entrance way, not a room for  family  use.  An exchange recently suggested 'a  treatment for    an   ordinary  window  by  'dry.

As it was purely a family affair, and the persons interested were  unwilling to create a scandal, the  facts never became public properly.  About ton years ago a man'named  Grimes returned to M , after serv-  , ing a term for some offence, the nature of which I have forgotten. He  ' was, without exception, tho most  daring, cunning, and resourceful  scoundrel that ever breathed. Originally, an actor, he was a paslmasler  in the art of disguises; in fact, the  time of his downfall .dated from the  <5ay on which he impersonated tlie  manager of tho "company lie ., was  traveling with, and absconded with  the treasury. , Somehow, , afterwards, other people's clothes  fceexnod ' to" have a fascination 'for him, which naturally  created a large amount of ill-feeling  and a lot of work for us. ���������  Soon after his arrival hc received  , a letter from a gentleman giving the  name of Frankison, making an appointment for the following night,.  ������nd having nothing better to do,, he  called  upon him.   ���������  For a time Frankison confined his  conversation lo commonplace matters, as though afraid of inlroducing  the subject for which the interview  had been arranged. Seeing, , this,  Grimes, who had on several occa-  feions previously been engaged on  fahady jobs <by gentlemen equal in  position to the one who stood before him, proceeded to enumerate'  some of the most daring cases he  had been employed upon, and successfully carried through���������when the  necessary\ reward was forthcoming.  This hail the desired effect.  "I noticed your case in tlie papers," commenced Frankison, "and  Sntcndcd when you came out of your  temporary confinement to offer you  a position in which you. could not  only be a swell, but probably settle  down in * life nnd become a" use'ful  rnembcr of the community./'    ���������,  Grinii-s thanked him? but 'added  that if it was intended to try and  reform,him it was a hopeless task.  He loved the profession too much to  settle" down into tbe dull, monotonous round of a icsj>eclablc existence.  "But this case," returned Frankison, "offers excitement sufficient for  the most daring." Grimes nodded  his satisfaction.  "How would ybu like lo get married?" continued Frankison. "Say,  to a lovely girl with an income of  about two* thousand  a  year?"  "I'd'like that immensely," ' said  Grimes, with a grin. "But unfortunately 1 have already got two  wives living, ancl it's as much us I  can possibly do to keep out of their  way."   '  "But this one," replied Franki-  Fon, "will only be too pleased to  make you \ handsome allowance to  leave her."  "Then what on earth does she  want to marry me for?" questioned  Crimes.  Frankison smiled at his astonishment, and handed him a photo, of  an exceedingly jn-elty girl. Grimes  held it at arm's length for a few  moments., without speaking.  ' "It's nd' use," he said, with sa'  pigb; "a young lady so good-looking  as .she is will have no difficulty in  obtaining lovers enough, without  having to descend to take on a���������  well, gaol-bird. Oul with it; I suppose you have some 30b or other on  hand."  Frankison sat down and swallowed a f.im glass of whisky, after a  momentary hesitation, commenced to  unfold h.is .scheme."

Trouble,  But it is Now Known  to Ee a Disease of the Blood  ���������Outward Applications  Cannot Cure It.  The once popular belief that rheumatism was entirely the result of exposure to cold or dampness, is now  known to be a mistake. The disease  may be aggravated by exposure, but  the root of the trouble lies in the^  blood, and must be treated through"  it. Liniments and outward applications never cure, while Dr. Williams'  Pink.Piils always cure because they  make new, rich, red blood, in which  disease finds lodgment impossible.  Concerning the use of these pills Mr.  A. G. Lacombe, Sorel? Que., says :���������  "For upwards of five years I was a  victim to the tortures of rheumatism. At times the pains in my  knees, .shoulders and hip were almost past endurance. AI other  limes 1 could not dress 'myself without assistance. 1 tried several rc-  znedies." some of them very costly,  wi tho u t gelt ing 7.any_inor (uUian_tcm-  porary relief at the most. At, ' this  juncture a friend urged me to try  Di-. Williams' Pink Pills,' and 'spoke  so highly of the pills that 1 decided  to try them. Almost from the very  first these pills helped me, and by  the time 1 had taken seven or eight  boxes, every twinge of rheumatism  had disappeared, and 1 was feeling  better that I had for years. I would  strongly advise similar sufferers lo  give Ur. Williams' Pink Pills 'a fair  trial, as I am confident they will  not only, drive away all .pains and  aches, but leave you strong, active  and happy."      .;  Ur. Williams' rink Pills are tho  greatest tonic medicine in the world.  These pills not only cure rheumatism, but all troubles whose origin  comes from poor blood or weak  nerves, such as anaemia, consumption, neuralgia, kidney trouble, St.'  Vitus'' dance, partial paralysis and1  the irregularities which make the  lives of so many women a s>ource of  misery.

For your part in  the matter, I propose to pay you  the sum of fivie hundred p.ounds."  Grimes held out his hand dramatically. "Shake," he"said. "If I  admire anything, it is a man good  at his business. I've seen' a good  many villains, but, man, you could  give them all points.

Frankison eyed him savagely, and  paced the room'in thought. He re-*  sented tho familiarity in the man's  voice. "Six hundred." he exclaimed, at last. Grunes shook his head  negatively. ' "  Frankison sat down white with anger. "Suppose 1 tell you a little  story," he' commenced; and without  waiting for an answer proceeded. "A  few years ago a young swell entered  one of- the principal banks in Ixm-  don and cached  a cheque for a fa ir  on introduction to the same club  that Thompson frequented, and  once theic his insinuating, pleasing  exterior soon won him an acquaintance with the person he 9 "ired.  This soon ripened, into ft. friendship  so close that an observer Would have  been under the impression they had  known each other for years.  After a 'fortnight's time Grimes  conceived the idea of testing his  power to carry through the scheme  successfully, and with this object in  view called upon Frankison' in disguise. The deception was complete. 1, He was received and entertained for over an hour without his  disguise being penetrated, and whatever doubts Frankison had of the ultimate success of his ,plot Ihey were  dispelled when Grimes revealed himself.  On' several occasions afterwards he  called to report, L as requested���������  sometimes disguised and at others  not. So exceedingly clever was the  man, niuf-sb well had he studied the  character of the man he intended to  impersonate, that these visits completely mystified his employer, who,.  in order to disarm suspicion,, outwardly evinced the warmest friendship for th'e man he intended to so  cruelly wrong, and was, therefore,  always al a loss to know whether  he was receiving the real Thompson  or Grimes in disguise.  At length the night prior to the  marriage arrived. Frankison nervously paced his rooms, waiting' pa-'  tienlly for nn indication of the successful issuo of the first part. As tho  time passed, slowly on the suspense  became terrible." The fearful . consequences <of failure and exposure  took possession of his brain until at  last he could bear it no longer, and,  seizing his hat, he rushed into the  street. lie had not gone many  yards before his arm was grasped  by a man coming from the opposite  direction.     H was Grimes.  "Quick���������tell mc," hc said, in a  hoarse whisper.    '"Is all safe?"  Grimes laughed at the terror betrayed in ,his voice before replying:  "Of course it is."  Frankison grasped his hand with  a sigh of rciief. The chief difficulty  had been overcome���������success was  practically certain. Returning to  his rooms hc listened eagerly to a  recital of Thompson's 'capture, and  gave expression to his satisfaction  by. presenting Grimes with a cheque  for half the amount 'agreed upon.  Next morning, as an invited guest,  hc joined the wedding party", and  in clue lime arrived at the church.  Not a sign was to be seen of his  confederate'; 'but presently, the bride  entered and took up her position by  the altar rails. She looked fearfully ill, and leaned heavily on the arm  of an old gentleman, a friend of the  family; who was to give her away.  Frankison gazed upon her with , an  almost satanic look upon his 'features, and saw with -intense satisfaction the surprised expression on her  face give way to one of absolute  pain as the time passed 'and no  bridegroom ���������. appeared. . He himself  had .tasted suspense the night previously, and" calculated lo a 'degree-  the effect it was having upon her.  Tlie whispered expectancy of the  congregation lapsed into a low murmur' of consolation and sympathy  for the bride, and evenv Frankison  began'to anticipate failure.  Suddenly the sound of a carriage  being driven rapidly in the direction of the', church vvas heard, and  an audible "At1 last!" went round  the building as the bridegroom,  flushed vvith haste and excitement,  appeared .'"As hc, hurried up, the  aisle, hia eyes sbug'lit those of  Frankison) and the prearranged signal  of success was given. (  The ceremony was at.once proceeded wi'th, and ..soon the assumed  bridegroom led his almost fainting  bride, away.  Arrived al home, as soon as it  was f decently possible Frankison  gave 'Grimes the sign to retire, and.  after apologizing to his guests ho  did".so., Frankison would have enjoyed the sight of the newly-made  bride's agony "on being made acquainted with her true position, but  considering the' possibility- nof danger arising he denied himself the  pleasure, and soon afterwards departed.  Grimes, who had removed'his disguise., was waiting his arrival at  the place appointed, with the news  that the letter had already been  despatched. After congratulating  him upon the .success of the plot  Frankison handed ,him a cheque for  three hundred, and fifty pounds, being with the amount already received  " Prizes" with common soaps  are - dearly paid for at the expense of clothes and hands.

'   ���������- h  The reaction was too much for  Frankison. The rapid change from  anticipated success to complete failure stunned ''hijn. For a-,time he  sat "speechless with surprise, and  when at .last he recovered some, of  his scattered senses he took the advice contained in the first letter, and  made speedy preparations for a departure to a more congenial climate.���������London Tit-Bits. ��������� '  FRUIT i'0R_THE HEALTH  SOME WONDERFUL CURES EF-  1     FECTED BY IT.

The apple;  for instance. Not only is the apple  an ' excellent purifier of the blood,  but il is a cure for dysentery, and  has also tho peculiar effect of restoring au intoxicated person to  sobriety. A diet-of stewed apples,  eaten Ihrco times a day, has worked  wonders in cases of conlirmed drunkenness, giving the patient eventually  an absolute distaste for alcohol ir.  any form.   1 ^       ���������  Everyone who . has ever suffered  from a sore throat knows how delightfully soothing 'is a' drink mado  from black-currant jelly and water ;  but not so many"people aro aware  that currant leaves made "into a  poultice.give great relief-,in cases, of  gout.     '        ' '   ,        "  The pineapple is another fruit most  valuable, in throat affections. Indeed, it has saicd many a life of a  dii.hthcretic patient. The, , juice  squeezed from a ripe pine is the finest thing in the world for cutting  the fungus-like membrane which  coats the throat in diphtheria, and  if used in time never fails to cure.'  After, a severe attack of, influen7a  tho throat is often relaxed, and tho  tonsils painful. An old fashioned  remedy still in usu jn many parts of  tho West of "England is a conserve  of roses.

Mulberry juice has a curious  property of quenching thirst.  To eat a grape a minute for an  hour at a _ time,''and to repeat this  performance"-" three or four times i>  day, e-iting ' very little else mean-,  time but dry bread, may seem a  monotonous way'of spending the  time. This treatment works wonders  for thin, nervous, anaemic people,  whose digestion have got out<of order from worry or overwork. . It is  not mere quack prescription, but a  form of cure recognized and advised  by many well-known j hysicians.  Grapes arc, perhaps, the most digestible of any fruit in existence.  A. cordial made from blackberries  is greatly recommended as a cure  for colic, and many a farmer's wife  makes blackberry cordial as regularly as elderberry wine. The 'latter,  heated and mixed' with a little cinnamon, is one of the best preventives- known ��������� "against'a chill."The  'flowers, too, of the elder come in  useful. An'ointment made by layering them in mutton suet and olive  oil is most soothing in cases of  boils.  Nowadays* doctors forbid gouty  fatients to cat any kind of sweet  foods, but recommend them to cat  at least 0. dozen 'walnuts a day.  There is no doubt that walnuts arc  most useful to gouty subjects,-or in  cases of chronic rJicumatism. Swelling goes down and pain decreases.

They, are not, strictly  speaking, highly' intellectual, although they arc often talented. They  are constant in friendship, " and  strong in their affections.  The round face belongs lo a subject whose neck is short, shoulders  broad and round, chest full, and ,in  whom a tendency to stoutness in  middle life fiis indicated by the  plumpness of youth.  The round-faced woman very .often  has small feet and hands. In character the round-faced subject is lively, amiable, impulsive, nnd frequently fickle.

A pound or coal can produce power suflicienl to pull a large express  train a distance of one-sixth of a  mile, going at tlio rale of Fifty miles  an hour.  If the pound of coal could be  burned in water, one foot deep, with  a surface of six square feet, at  a .temperature of (VI degree.1*, and all  the hont from the coal imparled to  the water, this water would become  1(5 degrees holler, thus being suitable for a comfortable bath, if  (idupled to mechanical work,, the  10,000 heat units in the one pound  of coal would be criuivulent to ii(J0  horse-power.
