R'y for NeNun and with Kluiimor " Lytton "  for  Trail Creek and Nonhport.  This camp is at present, in a very  s;itisfaetorj' condition. 'It is especially  lively in the Washington basin and  around Cody and Sandon in fact, the  last named place may fairly claim to  lie "booming."  The Nakusp & Slocan and the Kaslo  & Slocan railways, generally regarded  as rivals, have met at Sandon and have  already had several lively encounters  in the way of pulling up' tracks and  knocking down win chouses, hut it is  expected the matters will shortly be  settled aud both roads kept busy,haul-'  ing out ore and bringing in machinery  and supplies.   , v  Mining men, who are competent to  judge say that at least 15,000 tons of  ore will be shipped from the1 Slocan  this winter. "  Three .Forks, although piactically  sidetracked by both railway.*, still  possesses considerable, vitality, and  permanent residents claim that there  is enough' mineral on the Noith Fork  of Carpenter creek to ensure the permanency of their town.  The residents of New Denver are  wintering very quietly but are now  more confident about the future of  their town than at any period for two  years hack: P*opei ties, on - the lake  shore are now being bonded or sold  and several hundred promising dry-  ore prospects near the lake are to he  o'pened "P by assessment and development work next summer.  - At]the head of the lake ,'Hill Bros,  are cutting, sawing and piling some  very fine lumber, evidently preparing  for more lively times.      ��������� ���������, c  " Judge ", Wilson ' presides at- Rose-  bery and is pretty sure that Rosebery  will remain as now���������the shipping port  of the Slocan lake.  'Silverton is,at present "dead"  may soon be alive, again if rthei'o is  truth in the'rumor that the Kaslo' &  Slucaii railway is to be extended and  will touch' the Slocan ,lake at that  pointy   .,. ..v       '", ������������������  ,On"'Four Milt? creek eight'men1 are  working on t!ie " Alphai"'.-i:id<Poph<tm  & Webb are about tobship -two carloads of high grade dry ore from the  "Fishermaiden "claim. The "Currie,"  on the "Galena Farm" bench below  Silverton, is now opened up in good  shape and -is for sale or bond.  The V Currie," at a depth of 65 feet,  shows eight feet of concentrating  galena ore and being a crown-granted  property would be suitable for a company able to put up a concentrator.  On Eight Mile creek, several fine  properties are, unfortunately, lying  idle, the owners being either unable to  work them for want of means,  or are  " waiting for semethirig to turn up."  The "Enterprise" group, on Ten  Mile creek, under bond to Mi. J. A.  Finch, is showing up well, therefore,  it is almost; certain the bond will ,be  tiik en up and ore shipped before spring.  The. ",Kali������pel" claim, also on Ten  Mile creek, was recently sold for$3,000,  cash down, to an' American company  represented by Mr. ,Lardner,' who  proposes to put in several thousand  dollars worth of development work  hoping to make it one of the big mines  of this camp. The ledge'matter on the,  surface is St feet across and contains  scattered bunches of high grade ruby  silver ore.  Sam Whittaker, Tom Mulney and  several others are living at the south  end of the lake and report that duck  shooting in the Slocan valley is good  as usual but thatt the deer' are being  chased south by tho wolves.  On|5 Springer, creek,' seventeen men  are working on claims located last fall,  and a twelve ton shipment of, dry ore  has been made to the Pilot Bay smelter.  Five tons from the "Exchange" and  seven tons - from " the " Howard  Fraction " claims. The ore is expected  to average at least $150 per ton.  Mr. IL> P. Heacock; a general cotract-  or and mining man from Helena,  Montana, inspected this district last  , week and took away with him terms  of sale on the ','Arlington," "Tamarack"  and "Currie" claims.  The C.P.R. is quoting the. rate of  $11 per ton' on ore from' Rosebery to  the Taconm smeltei. This rate applies  to small shipments and will induce  'many of the claim ownets to make  trial shipments next season. ,  ,  It is reported here that Mr. Kellie,  M.P.P., will, at, the "next session of  the Provincial Legislature, endeavor  ,tohave a clause inserted into the  Mineral"Act that, will, it is hoped,  the   business  of  claim  LARDEAU NOTES.  The Fish Creek Camp���������A New  ,  for the, N.E. Arm.  Boat'  The winter weather lias caused a  general cessation of mining operations  in the Fi.sli creek district, but work or  the past summer amply demonstrates  the great mineral possibilities of the  camp, and^ with such showings as are  made ,by the Glengarry, Sable oreeJc  nnd Poil creek proporties, there is no  doubt as to its future.  Trails are  badly   wanted   here.    In  fact little can    be   done  trails   are   construed.  > trunk  untj  Tins want  could be supplied a't a comparatively  small outlay on the part of ,the government, and it iscto bo hoped that an  adequate appropriation will be. ��������� inario  for this purpose. Those, interested  here feci that they arc not asking too  lunch, as no district in West Kootenay has received so little assistance  in this particular as Fish creel.-.

"     ^  If the members of our Provincial  Government will give Mr. Kellie their  hearty support and -secure' the enactment of law to effectually' stop claim  jumping they will earn tbeapprobation  .of ninety-five per cent, of the free  miners of West Kootenay.-  The Slocan, like many other camps  in this province^ contains dozens .of  promising claims which need capital  for development, but men with money  are dubious about investing, in any  camp where claim jumping, flourishes  and unscrupulous lawyers grow fat.  The action taken by tbe. authorities  to stop claim jumping at Rossland has  been heartily endorsed in* the Slocan,  and it is hoped that the good ��������� work  may go on till we are" all assured of  more justice and less law.  its well  known groups of claims, 31 new  locations have, been made in this camp  during the season.   ' '  ���������'  The latest assay   from   the   Agiift.s,  one of the claims of  the. Sable,   creek'  group, gives 15 per cent./jopper, 9-1 oz.  silver, \\ ozs. gold.  The Menhinick ., brothers are constructing a steam launch which they  intend operating'between Arrowhead  and the various points on the north-,'  east arm, next' season.

Lying in the Northeast Arm of Upper  Arrow Lake.  A report was received late this afternoon, via Arrowhead, that the steamer  Arrow had been seen on the north  shore of the Northeast Arm lying partially submerged with bottom up. The  Arrow is a small screw steamer plying  on Upper Arrow Lake. She left Arrowhead Thursday afternoon with a  cargo which she discharged safely at  Thomson's Landing. No particulars  have been received ,but it is supposed  that she was endeavoring to put out  into the lake again in the face of the  fierce gale which was blowing tit the  time and was capsized. Her crew consisted of two men���������("apt. Vanderburgh  and an engineer, who are supposed to  be drowned, as nothing has been heard  of them.  Now that the mining' industry has  revived and'is getting onas.'itisfactory  basis,   the   "patent' process"   man   is  being heard of in many quarters,   with  his machine t that  is   going ,to   revolutionize the   mining- industry.     This  machine has many forms, sometimes it  is going to save an unhnard of percent-'  age of flour and rusty   gold,, from, the  placer deposits, sometimes it is  going  to smelt rebellious oros j:or a  dollar   a  ton,'and sometimes it is a   f solution"  that will   enable   the   mill   man'  to  amalgamate raw sulphides and save 9S  per cent of their value.

Progress  in metallurgy-does not   come   in    tin's  way, it comes through small   improvements on known and  proved   devices, ���������  and gradual modifications of well tried  methods.    There seems to be a certain  attraction    to   many   minds   in    the  mysterious,   and   anything   that     is  supposed to embody a  new   principle  in chemistry or mechanics and is. sure  to find someone to put money   in   it.

A snow blockade, which resulted in  disarranging the Christmas programme  of several travellers, occurred ut Ross  Peak���������37 miles east of Revelstoke���������  on Monday and caused the first delay  of the season on the main line.

'    MANITOBA'S CHRISTMAS BOX.  Premier Green way Presents the Prairie  Province With a General Election.  Premier Green way's Christmas    box  to the people of-Manitoba is a general  election and, while   it caused   general  surprise,   it   did   not   give   universal  satisfaction to the people of the prairie  province.    This is especially   ihe   case  with the adherents of the conservati\e  "opposition who are ill prepared for,   an  appeal  to   the  country.     The    nominations will be hold on' January   Stii  and the voting takes place on the J 5th.  The writs are returnable on   tho   -.'Jul  and the legislature is called toassemble.  for the despatch   of   business   on    tho  2'lth.    This is pretty quick work,   but  the    business   interests,     which     are  always more or less   disturbed    by   a  general election, will be thankful   that  the inevitable excitement will l)r. of so  short duration. . The   people   will   be.  again asked   to  pronounce   upon alio '  school question and in his   address .to  the electors Premier   Green way   gives  tho  keynote   of   the   campaign.    He  says: "The menacing attitude assumed  by  the   Dominion   government   with  reference to the educational legislation  of the proviuce has made it   nceess.irr '  to take the sense of the  electors   upon  the question thus forced upon them."  It is a matter for regret that this  whole question of education - in  Manitoba was not settled withunt all  this strife and acrimony. No doubt  thin could have been done and the  whole affair amicably settled had there  been more statesmen and fever  "politicians" in public life in both  Provincial and Dominion afl.iirs---  politicians who do not hesitate t i  appeal to tho prejudices of one and tl.e  passions of another s<ict"on ot tb������-  electors-for the purjio.se of g.iinini' a  party advantage.

���CURRENT NOTES.
' It waa tha first Emperor Nicholas of
Russia, "s-bo described Turkey as the
"Sick lean." On tho night of tbe 9th
January, 1853, Sir Hamilton Seymour,
minister of Great Britain at St. Petersburg, was at a party in the palace of the
Archduchess Helen. There Nicholas
, said to him: " The affairs of Turkey
are in . a very disorganized condition.
The country itself seems to be falling
to pieces. The fall will be a great misfortune, and it is very important that
England and Russia should come to a
perfectly good understanding upon
these affairs, and that neither should
takcyany decisive step.'" The English
minister answered that this .was certainly his view of the way in which the
Turkish question should 'be treated.
Nicholas then said, as if continuing his
-previous remarks: "Stay; we have
on our hands a sick man, a very sick
man. ' It will be, I tell you frankly, a
great misfortune if, one of t hese days, he
���should slip away from'us, especially before all necessary arrangements are.
made." ,'
%
This is the origin of the phrase that
became    extended  Into "the Sick Man
of Europe."   On   a    later occasion   the
emperor, speaking to the same minister,
said:    "Turkey   has  by  degrees  fallen
into such  a state  of decrepitude  that,
,j   as I told you the other night, eager as
we all  arc for tho prolonged existence.
of the man (and that I am as desirous
'as you can be for the continuance of his
life I bee? you to believe), he^pjay sud-.
- denly    die upon our hands'."    Nicholas

THE .FARM.. ���.[
Feeding: Lambs.
" One of the hardest things to do
just now is to get the lambs on a
grain diet. It is quite essential -that
they should be fed grain by the time
cold weather comes, and it takes considerable good management to put
them on the grain diet successfully,"
says E. P. Smith.. "New grain Is generally, injurious to them because they
are not used to it. New corn , undigested may kill a lamb, or make half a
flock sick and bring on inflammation of
the bowels. A young lamb knows no
more how to eat grain than a baby understands how to chew meat. In either case the habit of using food properly must be taught. If tha child
should swallow,tho meat without masticating it ho would suffer as a consequence, and so with,the lambs. A great
many think t hat moist bran is the best
grain diet to give to the lambs at first,
but soft, mushy food Ls apt to cause
trouble in the stomach as hard, lumD
grain. Oats and,' bran mixed together
cause tho least trouble. Corn is not
a good gram to begin with, unless it
is ground into meal. A few oats with
moist bran sprinkled in them 'will
tempt the lambs as much as any gram,
and they will suffer the least from
such a diet. A little bran should be
scattered around the feeding trough
to tempt them to try the grain. After
licking up this they will begin to eat
oats' and   bran    mixed    together.
Axle grease modifies the grain bill.
A horse's power Is proportionate to
his food.
Regular and plentiful feeding is
good economy.
Five cents' worth of sugar is better than a dollar in whips
Blinders are worth more on the driver than on the horse.
He who cannot govern  himself cannot  govern   horses.
The  blacksmith  is  father   to    much
lameness, v
Few  farm   horses   need  shoes.
.Horses  need  food, and  water  whenever their driver does.
The  golden  rule   applies  to    horses
the same as to men.
The more whip the less horsemanship.
the
Lambs should be fed a gram diet very
carefully. Give them, at first just
enough to tempt theni'i to come again.
Do not overfeed" them with- grain.'
One false step in this direction may
cost you the lives ��� of several ��� of the

feeding should bo at regular stated intervals. Irregularity in the time and
.quantity o'f the food are sources of a
great deal of trouble with the winter
lambs. Oats and ' bran' should be fed
tho first week' or two, and then wheat
or- ryo .can lie mixed in and after a
month corn can be fed. The latter grain
is the hardest for the lambs to digest,
and it''should not be made a part or
their grain diet until their stomachs
become    accustomed    to   coarse
food."

The " sick man " continues ��� to linger,
ffo-day he finds himself confronted with
a totally dilfcrcnt organization of moral
and material forces, all directed toward
hastening his end. France has become
the ally of llussia. Italy, which was
made a first-class power diplomatically
by England at the treaty of Berlin, by
which a further lease of life was given
to the " sick nian," cannot assist the
architect of her own elevation. Austria
dare not stir in any contest against Russia. Prussia also was admitted on equal
terms with the other powers by the
treaty of Berlin, but the Germany of today must watch the Rhine and' keep out
of foreign wars. Russia appears to
have taken "the first &tep toward either
detaching Armenia from the Ottoman
Empire or is about to invade the empire
to force the long-deferred dissolution.
England looks on, quietly, but ia all
veady to spring.
The situation is serious but not critical.' England will probably be content
to let'Armenia go if with that Russia
will be content. Meanwhile the "sick

be rash to predict his funeral as an
event of immediate probability. He is

cured from a flock^-whero the sheep
��� are thrifty. - All ewes that are not, robust, or which show the least 'evidence
of unsoundness, should be discarded.
By careful selection and bringing the
ewes into'tho winter in good condition
they'will have no difficulty in with-,
standing tbe cold, and their lambs will
be strong and thrifty in the early por-
j tion of tho year. Dogs can be kept
from sheep by Judicious' liso of barbed
wire, the lower strand being on the
ground or buried two inches beneath
the surface, and tho next strand four
, inches above the lower one. Sheep do
not often receive injury from barbed
wire, tho wool being a protection. If
dogs can be kept from sheep they can
be raised with but little" labor, and will
partially support' themselves while
plants "are growing, both weeds and
grass being 'consumed by them, and
they will enrich tho soil with their
droppings, which are evenly distributed and   trodden   in.
When farmers recognize tha't wool
is not the only product of sheep they
will improve their flocks, and 'make
larger profits. .- While there are individual sheep - with good records as
producers of heavy fleeces, yet the
average clipping of wool is not over
four pounds per sheep, due 'to breeding sheep that can thrive on scanty
pastures and ignoring size. The present flocks can be almost entirely change
ed in two seasons, and at less expense'
than with .any other class of stock. In
England the farmers have , ceased to
attach importance to wool,' breeding
for mutton and lamb, with wool as a
secondary product, and the long experience of the English farmers should
be a guide to farmers' in thu country.
In England the farmer pays a high
rent and uses roots as a special food
for sheep, the object being to produce
a mutton of 'chou^s quality. In our
large marker? choice mutton sells read-
ly, but. it must be admitted that the
large number of inferior sheep that
leach the markets assist' in keeping
down prices to a certain extent, yet
those farmers who have sent good ones
; to market have not U-ec disappoint-
] ed in   profits.

HOUSEHOLD ELECTRICITY.
Many Devices by .Ileum* of Which Domcotlc
UnilOft ire Ie��nene<l.
At the present tunc almost everything can be done by electricity, and
each day increases man's power over
it thanks to the genius and 'perseverance of such men as Thomas A. Edison, Nicola Tcsla, Siemens, i Brush and
other great scientists. Electricity is
used for lighting, heating, locomotion,
the transmission of-sounds and symbols, as in the ' telegraph,- telephone,
and kinctoscope, and now this wonderful power has been boxed up until
it can be made to run households of
the future. ��� In the coming homo, presided over by the coming woman,
electricity will be stored in nice little
jars or cells and left at the house each
morning, just as the milk is nowadays. Indeed, from the present electrical indications, it will not, be surprising if the entire retinue of servants were some day replaced by a
set of lay figures, who will automatically perform every domestic duty according -to Edisonian ��� laws duly laid
down and promulgated.
Here aro some of the latest household appliances which can be evolved
from  electricity.
ELECTRIC BATHING
can be performed at home in'the following manner: An'electric bath can bo fitted up by a combination in series of
a shocking- coil and a small transformer., The whole is placed in a little marble receptacle above the bath
and at one side. The secondary of the
transformer moves along thw sides,
and a rod passing to tho outside enables tho, current to be regulated
from a* maximum to a ' minimum
strength. Tho primary oircuit is provided with an interrupter. The wires
of the secondary proceed directly to
the 'eleotrodes, 'winch are simple plates
of metal that can be placed anywhere
in the bath by means of suspending
hooks. There may' also b<S added an
amporemeter for, continuous and alternating currents, by means of which
the strength of the currents can be
estimated  with a strict accuracy.
An' electric candle is another novelty which is sure to be popular for the
bghting and decorating of dining and
other tables. An ingenious device for
lighting, the candle is provided by
placing small pads under the tablecloth and taking the current from
them ���' by means .of two pin points
in 'tho base of the candlestick. The'
candles, of course, are extinguished'
on being taken, from the table and aro
relighted   when they   are replaced,   in
' '"THE PROPER POSITION.
They are so arranged,that tho bulb and
glass imitation of a wax candle can bo
removed, when the candlestick can be
used for an ordinary candle. When
used with shades of colored silk tho
electric candle makes ono of the prettiest additions to a dinner table that
it is possible to imagine.
Yet another electrical appliance for
tho house is a radiator for heating,
which has been successfully tried in
England, and which can be fixed and
operated at a ridiculously, low cost.
A large theatre has been perfectly
heated at a cost of 72 cents an hour,
and it' is calculated that an ordinary
house can be perfectly warmed for 10
cents a day. So you see the possibilities of electricity in the household
are quite ��� beyond all mortal imagination, and only time will serve to de-'
velop its wonders.
It was a Lover and His Lass..
A despatch from Charleston, W. Va.,
says :���There was a remarkable ' duel
in' Eagle on Sunday. Ervin Hartley
saw his sweetheart, Eettie Shields, in
the street with a young man last Wednesday and demanded an explanation.
The explanation was given, but it was
not satisfactory, and Hartley declared
than he would make trouble for Miss
Shields. After Drooding over the matter for three days. Hartley decided to
shoot Miss Shielus. He met her in the
street, and pulling a pistol from , his
pocket, fired at her. The bullet cut
the skin of Miss Shields' neck. Then
she took a pistol her brother' had loaned her and fired three shots at Hartley, each of them taking effect and
making- wounds which may result fatally. Hartley Ls the son of a well-to-do
merchant, and has stood high in tho
community, this being his first escapade. Miss Shields is the' daughter of
Franklin Shields, and is very popular.
She is eighteen year.s of age.

Neapolitans 'and macaroni are no

The fact that nearly 20,000 fat,'cattle averaging ��10 a head have been
shipped from the western ranges this
season establishes cattle raising for the
old country markets as the1 leading industry of the Territories, says the Calgary Herald. Compared with grain-
growing or any, other branch of farming, cattle, ranching .stands out pre-eminently as the safest, easiest and most'
profitable thing that a man can turn
his hand to. There is in fact no occupation or industry in Canada that to the
industrious man of small capital offers
such advantages.
The 4.0U0 head of stockers that have
been shipped in from tho east this sea-
sou furnish an,indication of the possibilities open to tho ranch, r. Two year
old stockers were laid down in Calgary
this fall at $23 to ��25 a head. Many of
these were sold in small lota to men
with bands of twenty-five, fifty, or a
hundred or two head. The.se eastern
cattle being unaccustomed to .wintering
out will have to be fed during a part
of the winter at a cost of a few dollars

$10 to ��17 now, and after running on

This is the age of machinery, and
the genius of mechanism pervades all
departments of life. It is, however,
none tho less startling to lie confronted
with apparatus which lays hold on you
in whatsoever "manner ��� j'ou . desire,
strokes you gontly, pats you,, shakes
you, twists, you, Jn fine,.'manipulates
you as" you please, and that so gently
and so daintily that your nerves give
no hint of rebellion. To be sure, tho
appliances have tho air of relics from
the tortures of tho Inquisition, "but that
is only another 'evidence of tho deceitful characteristics of, appearances. ,
These apparatus are tho invention of'
Dr. G. Zander, of Stockholm, who has
spent tho .bulk of his life'in. perfecting
his system of mechanico-thcrapcutic
contrivances for the treatment of disease and for the general development
of tho physique. To a great extent
and in tho moro novel fforms the instrument's aro designed to 'afford mechanical substitutes for massage.���manipulation  by  human attendants.   <
Within the last twenty years massage has come to bo recognized as ot
marvelous worth in tho treatment of
the human body for its,, restoration or
for v its development/ That it has
been made the means of abuses docs
not detract from' its value -whore
JUDICIOUSLY EMPLOYED.. , ,
It'may bo saidi that massage in simple form has been practiced by all men
of all tunes, as, for illustration, in rubbing and friction, but its scope ' has
been so much' enlarged and its importance so much' esteemed of late that it
is practically tho invention of"'the generation. For its proper service it is
essential that tho,operators should possess a variety of' abilities, which, unfortunately, "are not commonly united
in one person. Dr. Zander bas sought
to unite tho desired qualities artificially in mechanical appliances and he has
succeeded marvelously. ' Tho inventor
by his medical training was conversant
with all tho peculiarities of' the human
anatomy, a knowledge which -he made
tho guide in the construction of his
apparatus. * Tho ordinary masseur
knows littlo or nothing about joints,
smews, and organs, and as a result his
services lose their value in great part.
Tho instruments aro so carefully considered and skillfully adjusted that
their work is beyond criticism.
The most curious of tho instruments
arc thoso for tho passive movements.
These are designated for those invalids
unable to endure the exertion of active movements, and they aro designed
also foiy those others who are so lazy
that they will not onduro tho work of
ordinary physical gymnastics. One of
.those machines ia tho saddle horse. It
is a luxurious bit from a merry-go-
round in form, and is made for cither
man or woman. \ The patient, mounts
it, a lever is moved, and tho patient is
on ,his travels. He docs not travel
forward, but up, then down, and that
is all. Tho exact movement of a trotting gait is reproduced, and it may bo
regulated to , tho slightest staccato
movement or the wild rise and fall of
a bucking  bronco. .  *
Another instrument is for trunk rotation. The patient sits on a comfortable and innocent seeming chair,
the lover i.s moved, and the decorous
patient becomes in the twinkling of,an
eye tho rival of any .   c

liy other contrivances one can have
rubbings of the feet, the hands, or, indeed, any part of tho body, and that
with a gentleness and regularity that
arc ���most gratifying. Of all this sort
the most popular is ono in the form of
a huge cushioned chair, which has a
long ���ipcning in < lift back. Tlic sybarite

begins a slow and languorous movement back and forth, while at the same

Another instrument "has looped rubber hummers that beat a swift tattoo
on any part, of the body, that stimulates
the sluggish blood. Another allows
you to place your feet on a box, and
forthwith your toes are genuinely
twinkling in tho quick vibrations. Or
you may lean against a .solid-seeming
pad, which forthwith imparts a thrilling tremolo to your astonished flesh.
An interesting machine is one which
seizes your foot and lifts it high in
air without aught of effort on your
part.
It should be added that every instrument is capable of the. nicest adjustment, so that the most delicate need
not be injured by the emotion, and all

The Chinese'Way.
Somebody   has   been ' observing  Chinese  methods ' and says   that thoy  do
everything  backward.    ' Their compass
points to tho south instead of thornorth.
The men wear skirts and the women
trousers ; while tho men wear their hair
long, tho women coil their's in a knot.
The, dressmakers arc men; the women,
carry  burdens.      The spoken language
is not written, and tho written language   is , not  spoken.      Books  aro   read
,backwards, and^any notes are inserted
at tho top.     White is-used for mourning, and the bridesmaids wear'black���
instead   of  being  maidens!   their  functionaries  are-old  women.      The  Chinese surname, comes first, and they shake
their own hands instead of one whom
they, would greet.   .Vessels aro launched  sideways,  and  horses  are  mounted
from  the off side.'      They commence.
their dinner with dessert, and end, up
with  soup and fish.      In- shaving,  the
barber  operates   on   tho   head,   cutting
tho hair upward, then downward, ana '
then polishes it off with a small knifo,
which is passed over the eyebrows and
into the nose to remove any superflu'
ous hairs;"and tho performance,is completed  by removing the wax- from the {
cars- with"a piece ot cotton wool on a

What Puzzled Margery.
This is-Margcry's first year in school,
and she-is greatly interested in everything that occurs. Ono morning recently sho came homo greatly excited.1
" Oh, mamma," she said, " what do
you think? Our-teacher stopped right
in tho middle' of a' musio lesson, and
asked us how many turnips there are
in a bushel. Wo just couldn't, understand what that had to do with our
music."   "
Mamma couldn't understand ,it,-
either, and the moro positive Margery
grew about this matter, tho more hor
mamma felt,sho must be mistaken. Fin- ,
ally, to satisfy her own mind, one morning when she met thc.teachor Margery's
mamma asked her what she meant by
asking tho children how many turnips
there were in a bushel durmg a musio
lesson. '���
Tho toachor, too, was just as puzzled'
as Margery had'been.
" Why, surely, I didn't ask such a
question as that,',' ' sho said. Then,
after thinking a moment,' she said,
laughingly': Why, I asked tho children
how many beats thoro were in a measure I "
I   Margery's bright mind had done the

A Trlek With a Needle.
Although steol is harder than coppoic '
or-silver,,'it would''be a difficult feat
to penetrate a coin with a noodle in the
ordinary way; but if it is thrust into
a cork of just tho same length' as a
needle, and given a quick, heavy blow
with the hammer, the needle will be
driven  completely through it.
To insure the success of the experiment, the, needle should be exactly covered by the cork, and must be placed
so that it stands directly vertical to
tho face of tho coin ; but several trials
may be necessary before this is accomplished. Tho coin may rest, upon a
piocu of soft wood.
This trick is flue to tho principle of
inerlia, the quick blow dri ing tho
alccl needle supported by Hie cork
through the soft mcl.ul before it haj
had time  to bend or break.
Burg-lars, Make a Rich Haul.

Burglars entered Air. C. W. Watson's
banking office on Saturday night. Kn-
I.runoe was gained by cutting the glass

fastenings wcro easily unlocked. The
burglar or burglars failed to unlock
flic combination, and had commenced
to drill. ��� They had evidently become
frightened, as they had only drilled half
tin inch into the-plate. ' They left tho
office by tho back door, leaving it open
behind thcmJ - It is very-fortunate that
the burglars became frightened before
(hoy had accomplishe'd their .work, as
there wa.s considerably more than $1,000
in the safe at the time. The night was
dark and damp, affording the burglars
a good opportunity to pursue their
work.

Correct Serving1. '  The first essentials of a capable waiting maid are that she should be neat,  quick and quiet." Neatness is an attribute indispensable in the dining-room  above all other places. Plain, neat  clothing should' be worn. The hair  ���������should bo arranged as plainly as possible. A maid should always be capped  and' aproned, and her shoc3 should be  ��������� 'Such as to render her walking as near  noiseless as possible. A waiting maid  ._ should not make her appearance in the  dining-room until after the guests aro  seated and she should be familiar with  the  following  rules:  In sotting tho table the tines of tho  fork should be turned up and the sharp  edge  of tho knife \ blade toward    tho  -plate,  placing  the fork next tho  plate  Always  place  tumblers  to tho  right  and   fill  only three-quarters  full.  Place the cup containing coffee at the  right side of each person; offer sugar  and cream  at the  left.  Any dish. from which a person helps  hunsclf must lie offered . at tho left.  Those from which the maid serves nust  be plaood at the right.,  Everything relating to one course  must bo removed before serving another course  Always go to the right ot each -person to remove the dishes.  The  waiting  maid    must bo  responsible  for tho proper heating of  dishes  before  thoy  aro brought to the  tabic.  Except in ease of .accident which sho  cannot ' remedy,    a maid should never  . speak   to  the  hostess,    who should  bo  looked upon us a guost at"her own tablo  'for the time being, and treated accord-  ��������� ingiy.  LUNACY" AND CRIME.  A. los^on May lie Learned From the Crime  ���������    or the !Hurdpr������r ShnrlN.  The principal lesson to be learnt from  the deplorable crime of the murderer  Shortis,' and its consequences, is ��������� the  urgent.. necessity of keeping embryo  murderers out of harm's way. If people aro so unpardonably foolish as to  turn loose upon' society men who show  from babyhood the characteristics of  tho criminal thoy must expect Berious  trouble sooner   or   later.      Allowing   a  human bruto to run wild only appeals  to. his bruto instincts. Some day he  will, commit murder as inevitably as  the freed tiger will i slay. 'Being a human beast ot prey, tho safety of society will demand his death, though he  may be no more responsible than is  the dog who knows that it is wrong  to bite and worry but does it. ' A child  who in early life betrays decided  viciousness, ' and is below, par intellectually, should bo kept from society  as wo would keep poison from food.  He is poison to the blood of tho nation,  and sanitary laws are quite as necessary for tho peoplo as for the homos  they dwell in.  With regard to the .plea of lunacy  as a , reason for withholding the due  punishment    of crime,  the opinions   of  EXPERTS  WILL DIFFER  to the end of the chapter with a vehemence and emphasis which does much  to discount tho value of their evidence.  As this is almost invariably the case,  the authorities cannot do better per"  haps than fall back on the plain common sense of the most intelligent juries  available. There is a great doal of difference between a man ��������� being "a bit  wrong in his head" and tho state of  utter inabiliXy to distinguish as to the  Tightness or wrongncss of bis acts, and  between the two lie many varieties of  madness. But it may be safely said  that in nearly all of them the consciousness of a difference between right  and wrong remains. The law of the  country has necessarily, to do with  general     characteristics    rather    than  principalities. In 1853 Russia again attacked her, and a part of Bessarabia  and Servia passed urwler the guarantee  of the'powers. "   '  ���������By the treaty of Berlin in 1870 Turkey', lost; Bulgaria, ��������� Eastern Roumelia  and Thessaly. The administration of  Bosnia and Herzegovina was given to  Austria, and the island of Cyprus ' to  England. -That is to say, Turkey was  reduced in territory 58,440 square  miles. It is now known to the world  that if England and France had not  come to the aid of Turkey, in order to  keep Russia from-"becoming too powerful in the Southeast, the ��������� Ottoman  Empire would, have ceased to exist. <  Turkey in Europe, as it now is,' contains about 61,200 square miles and a  population of 5,000,000. It is one of the  most productive spots on the globe,  capable of supporting a population of  25,000,000 comrortably. It is .known to  be rich 'in* - mineral c resources, all of  which are comparatively unworked. Its  mountains aro filled with metal, its  earth,is rich in oil, its timber is of the  most valuablo kind, its climate is benign and its soil rich. ' ,,  INCUBUS  OF   MAHOMETANISM. ��������� '  But the country -is absolutely destitute of enterprise. A fearful incubus  rests upon its people, chokes its vitality,  blights its harvests and drives away  capital. This incubus is Mahometanism  ���������more easily expressed in the ��������� word  Fatalism, which makes the most distin-  guished  voluptuary  the  vicegerent    of  od and sets up his will as absolute.  The practical result, of Mahometan  rule is an iniquitous systenrof bureauoc-  racy that has, no equal outsido of  China. The Government paralyzes everything. Agriculture staggers along  under a system of taxation that puts  robbery and,, cruelty into the hands of  ever3" favored provincial underling of  the central power.  J ustico is administered in a fantastic  and capricious manner. Favoritism  rules and crimes are winked at, and it  has been found necessary by European  powers to establish consular courts in  order to protect foreigners who may be  doing business in Turkey or visiting it  for pleasure.  Turkey has never been able to rule its  Kurds and Bedouins except through  their superstitions. The Mahometan  in all his forms retains an undying loyalty to the militant viceregency of God  ?.nd the Prophet.   ,  THE SULTAN IN DANGER.  than a frowning iron-clad fleet on ono  side and a frowning mob on the other,  the latter prepared at any moment to  do as it has done before���������alter the succession in the interest of a Mahometan  heaven.  Once that this caprice surges upon the  Mussulmans is spreads like wild-fire. It  outruns the electric, current, for it  spreads in all directions. The Bedouins  of Arabia Petra know all about it before  the 'European cor respondent has got an  inkling of it. It is talked over in every  oasis, and muttered in ,,the Via Dola-  rosa of Jerusalem long before it can  reach a British Cabinet meeting and bo  reflected in fleet orders to the Mediterranean.  And in its sullen mutterings it means  only one thing���������the Sultan is no longer  of tho faithful; he has yielded to tbe  dogs of infidels. The harem must furnish a better Ottoman. If he will not  cut Armenian throats, then we, the  faithful, must cut his and theirs. 'It is  the will of heaven.  Such is the present condition of Turkey, and through Turkey the whole of  Mahometanism���������even to the ' heart  of India; where British tact has its  hands full in keeping' the faithful child  of Islam from burning the temples of  Brahma. Every foreign despatch hears  tho possibility of a, palace emeute in  Constantinople. And once that flame is  started, there will be anarchy in Turkey���������thatimust end in a partition and  the extinction of Mahometanism as a  temporal power.      ���������  , '  ,Y . .CHINA ANARCHISTC TOO.  'The peculiarities of this situation  are notable, inasmuch as they are almost duplicated in China. The moment  a superstitious people lose faith in the  supernatural prestige of their ruler they  are worse enemies of his than those  peoples who never had any respect for  his divino pretensions. Japan knocked  all tho mystical"charm "out of the Emperor of China.  When it was known in Peking that  gong-beating and the burning of sandalwood were no longer efficacious in protecting the Son of Heaven, the consternation, mingled with some com-  tempt, spread yery much as the cholera-  spreads. There were no-telegraphs, no  mails, but the news followed the water  courses. It diffused itself westward, no  one. knows how, until it came up against  the great wall that once kept the Tartars out.   ,  ' Tho reflex is momentous. rThere are  800,000 Chinese in rebellion against the  Son of Heaven. They, - appear to 'rbe,  actuated by the conviction that it,r'is  no longer worth while to be robbed and  massacred'by mandarins'if the,central  power has lost his divine afflatus.  China is no more' able to quell this rebellion than she was able to repel invasion,' for the reason that when superstitious faith in the Emperor is gone his  power is gone with it, and practically  the administration of the Government  is so imbecile, resting almost entirely  upon a system of terrorism and foreign  subserviency, that effective measures of  any kind for self-preservation are not  expected even in court circles.   1  This kingdom'contains 30,000,000 Ma,  hometans, who turn their faces towards  Bagdad when they-pray, and every one  of whom expects to be rewarded with a  houir made of 'gum tolu and a milk-  white horse when he-dies if he has made  away with an infidel dog.  There are 200,000,000 of these'fatalists  in the world. How do they communicate with each other f Heaven only  knows. But they do communicate. ' Recent letters of English missionaries in  China give us to understand that the  most. ignorant Mahometans 'in Manchuria Know perfectly well what is go-'  ing on in Constantinople, which recalls  the fact that the' Sepoy rebellion in  India was talked about in the bazaars  some time before the news' came by  wire to. the authorities.'  Now, whether in a coinflict Islam has  any chance with the forces of civilization is not the question that arises here.  Wo are only iritent on , .pointing, out-  that anarchy threatens in two of the  worst governed ��������� nations -of the world.  Tho disintegration of Turkey 'and China  is to come through chaos, in which a  fanatical spirit threatens to run amuck,  and long before the benign forces'of the  world are co-dinated against it millions of lives must be lost and many  more millions of hearts broken.  This appears by history0 to be the  price-mankind pays for tho extirpation  of the wrongs of centuries.     ,  .���������  BELL'S MW-fOMD EIT1E  EXPLORATION OF A NEGLECTED  DRAINAGE SYSTEM.

'  During tho past two years Mr. O'Sul-  livan, the Inspector of Surveys of the  Quebec Crown' Lands Department, has  made extensive surveys in tho upper  Ottawa region and the southern part  of'the area just explored by Dr. Bell,  but these have not yet reached the  public, and beyond them was still a  great unknown tract. In view of the  important results now obtained it appears strange that this tract has remained so . long uninvestigated. ��������� It  happens that the great blank on our  maps corresponds nearly, with a single  drainage area, so that'  A LARGE RIVER FLOWS  through its centre. It, was this central  trunk that 'Dr. Bell surveyed instru-  mentally all the way to its mouth in  James Bay with branch explorations  in    differnt     directions.

This consists of  fine white and black spruce, K2.ma.ra0.  balsam, cedar, white birch, and go on.  These discoveries >xire of immense importance to the province of Quebec,  since they so materially increase the  known extent of its ,cultivatable������land3  and timber and mineral resources. Dr.  Bell,said the metalliferous rocks are  very' much moro extensively developed  than had been suspected. The province  of Quebec has here a great back country in reserve, and one which possesses an unexpected value. It may be  fashionable to .decry those forest regions inv'connection with prospective set^  tlement or to compare them, unfavorably with the Western 'prairies, but in  many ways they are really preferable,  and a time is coming when they will be  inhabited by a thriving population.

' Among the provinces of Turkey arc  Armenia and Kurdistan, with over two  million population, and ever since the  fcecond century strongly Christian. We  have been reading now for a year of  how Turkey treats these Armenians.  It simply lets loose one sect upon another. The series of massacres and  other barbarities finally reached such a  itage that the moral sentiment of Europe and America made itself .felt at  Constantinople.  The Sultan, after innumerable delays  and excuses and protests, was forced to  take some action. There is no doubt  now that he did try to prevent the killing of Armenians, unci under pressuro  from England wus prepared to make  certain concessions to the Christ inns  rather than see a British iron-clad fleet  in the H->sphorus.  All this might have been, and was, undoubtedly foreseen by wise diplomatists. Ru': what, .has not been foreseen  Ls tbf. muttering of the Mussulman himself it this evidence of weakness. The  Sultan  appears   to  be   panic-stricken.  He Ls between the devil and the deep  sea. In these concessions to tho hated  Giaours ho has forfeited his divino right.  He has at least impaired his own prestige with the loyal Turks, and there is.  every reason to believe that there now  exLsts in Constantinople- 'a party ��������� or a  cabal of-assassination, the members of  which sincerely believe that the inierects of, Mahometanism can be best conserved "by making away with a Sultan  who Ls the mere puppet of England, and  has lost all puissance in carrying out  the doctrine of the Koran and in emulating the example of the Prophet.  In plain words, the jingo Turk wants  to fight and die for due faith, which is  being slowly undermined and cooped up  by the dogs of infidels.  WILL HE LOSE HbS HEAD?

As regards the public  library building there is not much to  be said; it i.s not a very imposing building, nor is it so well adapted to library  requirements as  other   largo  libraries.  MLss Mathcw, the bride-elect  John. Dillon, the Irish member  Parliament, is tho eldest daughter  Justice.   Mathcw,    a member    of  single season was not sufficient to explore the whole region but its leading  geographical features have been,.ascertained. , The existing sketch maps' show  some indications of streams running  into James Bay- from this heretofore  unexplored region, but those indications would; have been better left' out,  as, they are quite misleading. The actual-rivers do not take tha directions  indicated, and, with a single exception,  their supposed names have never been  heard of. ,  The geographical '"'features',,of ���������, the  regions lying south of James Bay are  very simple and easily understood, now  that'they are known. A great hydro-  graphic basin lies south-southeastward  of the , bay, ' and a corresponding or  twin basin lies south-southwest of it.  The Moose - River, with its long and  widespreading branches, drains the1 latter, while tho river Dr. Bell hac explored ^and its branches drain the former.  The river he reached north of Grand  Lake proved- to 'be '.the trunk stream  of the system, but some of, its branches  reach -further; inland and give the  stream a length of fully"500;miles.t The  form of the drainage,, basin j resembles  that of the Moose,'-but .it is somewhat  larger. ,It extends from "close-to .the  Rupert River in the north- to the  height of land near the upper Ottawa  in the south," and from the headwaters  of the Ashmouchouan on-'the-east-to  near the Abitibi, River in the west.'  The Rupert .River has- no appreciable  tributaries from the south, nor tho Abitibi from the east, both streams being  near the rim of the basin of the fiver  under consideration.    ',  Nearly the entire area drained by tho  new river lies within tho province of  Quebec.     ������  THE ANNUAL RAINFALL  is evidently greater in tho eastern than  the western basin, as the resulting river  in the former is certainly much larger  than the Moose., The 'height of land  between the upper Ottawa and ��������� this  great river system to, the north is not  a mountain range, nor even a ridge,  but a sandy tract, so level that a very  little elevation on either side ��������� would  turn tho present flow of the water in  the opposite direction.  The river rapidly grows larger by the  influx of branches from either side.  Within the first hundred miles it is  joined by the Mejiskun, a large stream  which has its source ���������near, the head of  the St. Maurice. It now becomes as  large as the Ottawa above Lake Tem-  iscamang, and.it continues to receive  important branches, especially from tho  west. In this section it is wide and  sluggish, but deep, > about thirty to  forty feet on the average. It is flowing through a nearly level plateau, and  is broken by chutes onlyfat long'intervals. It finally falls into the west end  of a .lake called Mattakami, which lies  across the general course of the stream.  The opposite end of this lake receives  the Waswanipi, a very large river,  from the. east. From tbe middle of the  north-1 side of this lake tho united  waters flow out as an immense stream  and follow a tolerably straight course  to the head of Rupert Bay, which may  bo called its'estuary, and which receives the Broadback" River, another  largo branch from the oast. This main  trunk river receives some largo branches from tho country lying toward tho  Abitibi Lake end River to the west.  From the junction of the Mejiskun  River to Mattakami-Lake thoro is only  one human inhabitant, an old Indian,  who came from the West u few 'years  ago and took up a bunting ground  large enough to form a province. On  Miittiikatni Lake Dr. Boll found another-Indian who had come only this  summer from tho West to fish and  hunt. On the grunt river, between  this lake and the sea; Dr. Bull found  only one camp of rndinns, but they belonged to Waswanipi Lake and had  come here for only 11 short time in order  to build birch bark canoes.  Tho elevation of the height of land  between Grand Lake and the huad  waters of this big river is about 1,000  feet, nnd tho descent is very gradual  till within about 100 miles of the sea,  when it becomes rapid, dangerous for  canoe navigation, and almost  . LM POSSIBLE TQ.-ASOEND.  The area of- tho basin of this groat  river is almost ��������� equal to that ot all  thoso portions of'the pfovinco ot Quebec  already bottled. It has an undulating  or level surface, and a deep clay soil,  without rock, except in very limited  areas. The clayey nature of the soil  causes most of the tributaries to be  turbid, whilo all the branches of tho  Moose River, except Lhe Abitibi arc  clcarwafer     "      "---'- ���������      --������������������     ������������������-���������  RUSSIAN PERSECUTIONS.  How IEiii.hI.-i, I lie   <:iiuiiiiu.ii.   oi   Armenia  lfr.es   ller   Own L������iil������Jeets.  Russia has posed as one of the three 1.  powers anxious to bring about a better  state of things in Armenia. The trouble in Turkey has mainly arisen through  tho irregular payment of functionaries  and the,police, and tho consequent disorganization and semi-anarchy. Count  Kcllay, who, as an Austrian official  governs Bosnia���������now in a flourishing  condition���������officially reports that ho administers tho Turkish laws (which no  states aro really good) with,some slight  alterations. This proves that it is tho  bad administration of tho law in Turkey which is" the great' trouble.. Although tho Christians have been tho  greatest sufferers, , yot the Moslems,  who, amount to'two-thirds of tho population, 'hayo '"also been ivictims.'  ���������But, in regard to .persecution, Russia  is as great a sinner as Turkey; 'especially considering that although tho pay  of her officials is inadequate, yet it is  punctually forthcoming'; and it has a  vastly larger proportion of well-educated office-bearers." Its state religion is  that: of tho Orthodox Greek'Churoh.but  the Dissenters number many millions,  and they have h id, and still havo, a hard  'time. Besides this, tho Catholics, who  number nine^ millions, havo much to  complain of���������especially attempts at  ��������� FORCIBLE CONVERSION. ,  The treatment of the Russian Jews, who'  number four millions, has been���������though  in different ways���������as bad or worso than  that ot tho Armenians; but European  public opinion has brought about an  amelioration.  .Count. Tolsioi, tho well-known Russian writer, nn author of world-wide  fame, ��������� has, ' with rare moral courage,  written to tho London Times (October '  23) with an account of the dreadful persecution of a small off-shoot from tho  Greek Church, known as tho Dukho-  bortsy, who number only <a few thousands. Their doctrines comprise something of the " Quaker land Plymouth  Brethren'beliefs,' combined with some  of tho tenets of the .Unitarians. They  are opposed.to war���������oven to bearing f  arms; to taking oaths, and to litigation.  Tolstoi describes them as ' industrious,  honest, . sober,- &nd well-conducted��������� <���������  'practically far above tho lovol of tho  Russian peasantry.' Ten of thom re- <  fused to sorvo! in tho army, and'were  consequently sentenced to servo in a  disciplinary'battalion, a,,sort of earthly  purgatory. A largo number ot tho elders were, also imprisoned. ��������� Tho Governor of tho Caucasus thon ordered all  of the sect to. assemble at a given spot,  but, apparently anticipating gross outrages, thoy did not come, whereupon the  Cossacks were let loose upon thom and  quartered in their houses, being allowed to ^ ,.  DO AS THEY PLEASED.  Numbers were severely flogged and women were outraged, and all their effects  were cither stolen or destroyed. Ultimately 401 families wore driven penniless from'their homes to starve. Tolstoi's detailed account is harrowing, and ���������  it is safe to assert that there is no other  Russian with sufficient moral courage  to expose isuch tyranny,' but ho holds  such a high literary position that angry  officials must bo careful what they do.  Doubtless the Emperor is personally unaware of theso and numbers of other  horrors, but now that' it has been ���������  brought to his notice (for he sees tho  Times) there will" bo .--a change ' for tho  better, no who publicly exposes official tyranny in Russia is liable to bo  sent to , Siberia without' any ceremony,  and brobablyauy other person would bo  sent there, and tho Czar would hot be ,  allowed to.know the truth. Tolstoi's,  partial lifting ot tho veil is a fine example of the use of a high literary position for a beneficent purpose, and his  action must certainly bo reckoned as  greatly to his credit mutiny attempt t6  properly estimate his character.  How to Estimate Trolley Car Speed.  There Ls in the public mind a confusion of ideas as to'the speed of eleo-  tric street'cars. Two inexpert observers guessing at this speed will rarely  come within miles of the correct estimate Yet it is possible for anybody,  by a simplo calculation, to arrive at  very nearly accurate information. An  electric car going at the rate of a milo  un hour t ravels 88 feet in a minute. At  two miles an hour it makes twice that  distance in a minute, or 170 feet. At  three miles an hour the distance travelled in u minute is three times 88, ��������� or  2GI feel. This distance of 2(it feet is-  about the length ot an average city  block. If it takes a car a'minute to  gn a block the rate of speed is three  miles an hour. If the ear goes two  blocks in a minute the rate is about  six miles an hour. Three blocks in a  minute means nine miles an hour.  Four blocks in a minute indicates a  speed of about twelve miles an hour.  At five blocks in a minute a car is going fifteen miles an' hoar. When six  blocks are traversed in a minute I lie  Sliced is eighteen miles an hour. A rate  of seven blocks in a minute is a speed  of twenty-one miles an hour. It must  l;c understood th.it average blocks are  required to make good such estimates.  An Intelligent Witness.
