Mean-while Mr. , Kiehard Ing-lefteld  pursued, his way after the olii fashion I  of his widowed life, thriving, prospering,' making money and wilfully shutting fe"ae door upon love. Every -week  the relations between himself and his  daughter , became . more strained,  every week they fell further and further apart 'from each other,  until  tlie  Could  it  Tbe possible that the son was  position occupied by her in their home (jn   the   8evv-ce   0j   jler  father?      The,  the clerk who had conducted that particular  correspondence.  " Very well," said Mr. Inglefield ;  "send Mr. Wyatt to me."  Radii;, -wno was sitting at the window with a piece of needlework in her  hand,- looked up at the mention of the  name, Mr. Wyatt ! It was the name  of_the old man whom she had-assisted  home from th(* Strand, and whose son  was doing such noble work in one of the  pourest    of'   London's    neighborhoods.  ,     was really little more than that of an  ordinary     housekeeper.       For     many  months she   'strove   hard   against this  unnatural order   of   things,   but each  fresh  effort on her part was received  with such coldness and indifference by  her father that at length, utterly wearied and disheartened, she ceased to persevere.    But    none    the    less  did  she  grieve.    Often of'a night did she shed  (���������    secret' tears, and Wondered' whether the  fault  was in  her  that-her  father  did  not  love her.    To  Interest him  in her  occupations she found it to be impossible, and therefore it'was that he was  ignorant of lhe events which have just  been recorded.    Despite this ignorance,  however, it was destined that he himself should be, the means of hastening  on ihe current of events, and of bringing' them, to   an   important   issue, in  his life and in the life of his daughter.  One day, in stepping out of a cab. he  slipped  and fell,  and  upon being carried   into  his  house it was discovered  ,that  he  had  broken his leg.    At .ilrst  his  fear xas that  he should lose  the  limb,' and fee writhed and  fretted  under it, as if a purpo-sad injury had been  'inflicted-on    him. ',Hisr mind was relieved, however, when, the bones being  set,   he" was   informed   by   his   doctor  'that it depended upon himself whether  he would ever' have the use of his leg  again. '  " All you have to do," said the doctor, in explanation, " will be to .follow  my, instructions implicitely. ' Violate  them, and" I will not answer for the  result���������or, I should rather say that I  1 will answer for it. In that case amputation will be necessary."'  "What kind of (instructions ,,do you  mean ?" demanded Mr. Inglefield, angrily.  " Perfect rest and quiet," replied  the  "doctor,   V for'   at    least'  two  or  three  months.    No walking about, no endeavoring   to  stand,   no  tampering "impatiently with the bandages."  "Do you mean to, 'tell ,me that I  am to .remain a prisoner in this room  all that time ?" exclimed Mr. Inglefield.  "Yes'," said the doctor,1" that is imperative." ���������'.''-  '"' You5'are' hot'frightening  me   with,  a-bugbear?   There, is  really   no   help  ,,for it-?"              ' '  " None."  " Do you undertake .that at the end  of the time you have named, 1 shall be  perfectly well, and able to walk freely ?" ]t "   c  "I undertake nothing,  except that I  will do my, best for you.    ,The chances  are all in your favor, if you follow ray  instructions ;, they are all against you  if   you   disregard   them.    As   for   your  walking   as  well   as  ever,   I   hold   out  to you no hope of that.     Vou will cer-  ta,inly limp a little, and you'-will probably need the aid of a stout stick."  Mr. Inglefield received the unwelcome  ' news in a most ungracious spirit.    He  .rebelled against the decree, but he was  , made to feel that he was human ; and  although   ho   did   not   thank   the   due-  tor   for   hife   advice,   ho   was   prudent  enough    u>   follow   it.    Rachel    nursed  , him   assidiously,   and   with   lender   devotion :    and    while    she-   sympathised  most deeply with him in hip suff^rines,  she could not koeu back the later- hop,e  that the accident might he productive  of  one   good   result.       Tt   might   draw  her father 'nearer to her ; it misht. 'in  his   enforced   impri'-onmi-nt.   revc-al   to  him a   truth of which he had  hitherto  appeared   to   have   no   recognition :   it  might open the fount" of love and affection :   it   might   bring   their  live?   into  harmony.      "If it be so.11 thought  th*  young   girl',   ," I   shall   bless   the   day:"  But it  was  not  to  be.     -Of  a  healthy  habit of body, constitutionally and phy-  ���������sically sound, Mr.  Ing-Iefield's"ailmer.i=  had always been of tlie slightest r and  lK-ing'of an  imperious,  masterful   and  self-willed  nature,  he- chafed Fo uniT  the  infliction  that  thore  was  no   room  in   his   h^.irffor  '.In.  new  and   -.-n ]>������������������������  phases  ot" existence for  which   finch--',  hoped  and  prayed.

'    '  AVhen their eyes met he was, perhaps, more startled than she was herself. ' Beyond, however,' one rapid  glanceof recognition,notiung passed between them. Indeed, Mr. Inglefield  plunged Immediately into the business  upon which lie had summoned- Henry  Wyatt to his presence, and dismissed  him the moment it was done ; but both  Rachel and Henry had immediate food  for thought, Said Henry, with a  sigh. "She is my master's daughter;  she is rioh and I am poor." Said' Rachel ': "He serves my father, and the  wages he earns arc barely .sufficient  for subsistence in a garret."  Uenti'oii   must   be   made   here   of   a  small    but    important      circumstance,-  which  it-ha5=not"hithcrto  been necessary   to   record.      In   the   letter  from  Aunt   Carrie   to   Mr.   Inglefield   which  has found its place in- an earlier part  of   this   story,' Aunt   Carrie ' deplored  that she had not a fortune-to leave to  Rachel,   *o   that   she   might   have   the  liappy assurance,    before    she   passed  away,   tl.at' the  young girl  would   be  placed all her life beyond the reach of  want.      But, although she had no for-,  tune to bequeath to her darling niece,  she had some small store of money and  'property   (the  money-being  what   she  had  been   enabled  to  save during  her  lifetime,   and   the  property   being   the  furniture in the old home in which'Rachel had passed so many happy years),  and  this little she left by will  to the  young girl.     The legacy, in round figures,    amounted    to    seven      hundred  pounds, s.nd  the sum'was invested by  Mr. Ingkfield in English consols in his  daughter's name,  so  that Rachel was  [not entirely penniless.  . " I do not'wish,",-, the doctor remarked   one   day   to   Mr.   Inglefield,   " your  daughter to'hear what 1 say about her.  Have you noticed anything the matter  with her lately'?" ' ,  ��������� No," replied Mr. Inglefield. ' " Is  there anything the'"'matter with her?  She has not complained."  "Hers is'not the kind ,of nature,"  said the, doctor, " that, wastes itself in1  complaining so long as she has a duty  to fulfil. But it is right for,me'to  tell you that she Is overtaxing herself  ������������������-indeed, that she has already overtaxed her strength."  '    t, *. '  " Why did  she  not  say  so ?"   asked  Mr.  Jnglefiold.  His mood was such that he accepted  this as a fresh grievance against himself.   .  " I have told you why," said the  doctor. " She has been in constant  attendance upon you,  has she not '.'"  " Ves."   , n  " She   nas   gone   without   sleep."  " I was not aware of it. If people  will keep things to themselves what is  a man to do ? it is altogether too  bad for her that she should have put  this upon mo, in addition to what I  am already suffering."  " Than iu not the question now," said  the- doctor, ronghly. , Ke had a family  himself, and Mr. Ingle-field's selfish and  inconsiderate utterance displeased him.  "I suppose- you, wish me to prescribe  for her?"  "Certainly, if it is n-'-cessary."  '��������� I shali give her a ror.ic.

Mr.. Inglefield got well, ancLthe only  sign that remained of the accident was,  as the doctor had warned him- would  be the case, that he could not walk  freely without the ������.id of a crutch. He  devoted himself more closely than ever  to the business of money-making, and  the estrangement between him and his  daughter became gradually deeper and  deeper. But Rachel now was engaged  in duties bo congenial to her sweet nature that she was by no means unhappy, although a r father/s .love was  withheld from her.' A link as tender  as that of parental love was being  forged between her'and .Henry Wyatt.  Their tastes, their sympathies, were  in'unison, and'day hy day they were  drawn closer together. The more Jiot-  chel learned of Henry'Wyatt,the more  she" esteemed him; the more he saw  of Rachel the moro he loved and honored her. It was. not only in the  pleasant' task of helping others that  their sympathies found expression.  Sorrow played its part in tlie forging  of the link. Joseph,'the young scholar, to whom both Rachel and Henry  had become-deeply attached, fourid his  earthly burden too heavy for him. He  sickened and died, and a bright spirit  was lost to the world. ��������� ��������� ,  . " Why do you wear black '!" 'asked  Mr. Inglefield, of his daughter. ,  " I am going to a funeral, papa," she  said. ^ ,  ���������   " A funeral,"   he exclaimed.  "Whode  funeral." '      , ,  "A young friend of mine, papa ; ,a  poor lad who has suffered much, and  who, "if he had lived, would have led  ���������a noble lif-*." ,      '   '   ,     . ,    -,.  "Tush ! 'iush ! you talk nonsense."  Rachel was silent, and for a moment  or two Mr, Inglefield quietly observed  her.     ���������    " ,  " His name is Joseph, papa," she replied.  " How did you come to the knowledge 0Kf this lad," he sa'id, " and what  is his name ?" '  "His name is Joseph, papa," she  replied. -" I" go ,a' liltl'e ( among the  poor, and V, met him.there."  " You have kept things to yourself,"  said Mr. I.iglcfield, in a jealous tone.  "It is' not because I had a desire to  do' so," said Rachel. " But, papa, I  used to talk to you so often of these  things, and you would never listen to  me.".  -"I had oi her things, to attend to," he  interrupted, harshly, " something better and more important than fussing  among what  you   call   the   poor."  ''There.are many, among them who  are very deserving," said Rachel, fwith  tears in hei eyes'; " and, papa, it is my  only pleasure! I have scarcely anything else to do, and if I had I should  choose this,     When I lived with dear  Aunt Carrie"   ",Oh, Aunt Carrier, Aunt Carrie !"he  exclaimed, again interrupting her. " I  am tired of hearing of* Aunt Carrie.  She has spoiled you entirely for thc  proper, business or 'life. What right,  what business have you to mingle with  people so much lower than yourself ?'���������'  "They an.- poorer than I, papa," said  Rachel ; " but there are many of them  not lower.1'  There was* a gathering wrath on his  face when' he next spoke.  " Do you mean to say, you place  yourself on an equality with these common creatures ?"  " Vers, papa; Heaven help, them for  being common."  " And you place me upon an equality  with them."  "Thar is fcr you to 'determine, papa.  It,is not for me to direct you."'  " No," he said, " it is rather for me  ro direct, tj instruct you how to behave yourself ; and when I express my  ihi-apr roval of the company I-find you  have hec-n in the habit^ of keeping I  =3ifi,ll expect that you i-lay proper attention t'o my wishes."

The TFliire Mail 1Vn������ llnvvn and thc Tlscr  Was Upon lilm. When a Japanese  Showed  the' Hellle or III*   Victorious   rCsuutrjiiirii.  " It was at a csr^vansury in a valley of  the Pwalung Shan, near the headwaters of  the Taina River, more than a year and a  half ago,( that I mot Iagata Koyshama,"  said E. T. Leffingwell, who recently re-  turne'd from Yokohama. "He was journeying in this out-of-the-way Corean district,  so he told me, with two principal objects  in -view : first to gratify his love of travel,  and next to forestall the Japanese countrymen on the coaBt in the buying of m illet and  ginseng for tho China trade. He was  attended by a servant of his own race and  one Corean porter, who led the pack horses.  My retinue comprised two porters and a  guide, with four' horses. Our/primitive  stopping place, tho ruin of a Buddhist tuon.  astery, was a low, rooflesa stone building  with a mud-walled yard. It afforded us  water and partial shelter only, for there  was not even a keeper thoro. After our  evening meal was cooked and eaten' wo  spread our bidding upon the earth floor or  upon the mud benches raised about the  sides of the one large apartment. I found  Koy'shama a most agreeable and intelligent  gentleman. He and' I joined our messes,  and, as we were both going to Kinckitao,  that is if we could get there, it was agreed  between us before we slept that we should  travel in company on the morrow.  "This.-'Japanese' gentleman deserves  more than a mere word of decryption. He  was  UNOBTRUSIVE ANU I-OLITE, ,  after tho manner of his countrymen in  general, spokcEnglUh passably and Corean  better, wasremarkably well informed about  the ' Hermit . Kingdom, it's geography  and resources, and, taken altogether, was a  valuable as well as pleasant companion on a  journey such as ours. Through his mipas-  siveueas there appeared a promptness and  quiet, .decision of'word and action; an  indefinably military touch, that I did not at  the time interpret. I may say here���������what  I did not, find out until I saw him seven or  eight months later at Hiroshima, about to  embark with his regiment for Seoul���������that  he was an infantry captain in the Japanese  army. His assumed interest in millet and  ginseng masked his true purpose���������that of  gaining information of a country in which,  within a few' months, the anr.ieR of his  sovereign were to march on a campaign'of  conquest.' '      ,  "W,o made our start betimeB^iu the  morning and, not long after sunrise were  stringing along the bridle trail that wound  through the mountain valley. It was a  wild nnd lonely region. The only evidences  of man's work,,outside tho narrow path in  a stretch of inany'mileB, were the ruins of  ancient towns and temples so numerous  everywhere in Coroa. As we travelled in  single file the guide, 'went ahead, on footj  picking out the almosL untrodden trail,  which waB'half overgrown with grass and  bushes, was forked in some ' places, and iu  others wascrossedby trails oquallyobscure.  Next to tho guide 1 rode, bsliind me came  Koyshama, then his servant and after hi.-n  our porters leading the pack licrses. ' Our  horses were the small, shaggy animals of  the country, docile, and far stronger and  more spirited than they wnuid appear  to be to one unacquainted with the breed.  For most of the way our path lay through  A SORT 01* JUNCLK,  it was that had disturbed him, then seemed  to decide that we were too many for his  liking, and that he would Dot wait for us.  He turned to pass round the rocky point  ahead, and with his movement I fired,  aiming at his shoulder. With a loud roar  he bounded onward and passed round  the bend of the cliff. ' Our party was  thrown into confusion by the plunging of  the frightened horses, which were bent  upon turning back, and the consternation  of the porters who had caught a glimpseof  the tiger and would have liked much to go  in tho same direction. After a great deal  of hacking and filling, we gob on our way  again, and soon were rounding the cliff in  the path the tiger had taken, er  " Amid all the fright and confusion of  the Coreans, I noticed that my Japanese  friend appeared in no wise disturbed.  With the appearance of the - tiger and tho  firing of my shot the impassiveness of his  face had changed to a more alert expression���������that was all. Ho had dismounted  aud now was walking, erect and steady,  close behind me, "   ,  PUBELY CMADIAI HEWS,:  INTERESTING   ITEMS   .iBOUT  OWN COUNTRY".  OUR  REVOLVE]!; IN IIAXD.  His servant ���������waB carrying a long, two-  handed sword drawn from a scabbard, tied  up with' other luggage,which,until now,had  concealed it. The guide had fallen behind  among tho porters. Followed by the  Japanese with thc'rest oi the party a long  distance behind, ������ started around the clifi.  Upon tho trail spots of blood showed the  track'of the tiger aud that ho was wounded. ' '        ��������� .        '  " We followed tho trail as it skirted tho  precipice 100 yards to a point^where tho  pass began to widen and a thicket appeared  beyond. - Just before coming to the thicket  I glanced back und saw uKoyshama still  close behind me, erect, alert and perfectly  tranquil. His revolver ho had placed in  its sheath and he now carried the sword,  tho hilt held in his right, the blade resting  upon his left arm. We had passed boyond  tho cliff and followed tho path a few stops  into the thicket ahead, when close by my  side, tho bushes bent and parted,  as with a rush ' and roar the tiger  leaped,out at me. ' My rifle was "cocked,-  my finger at the trige'r. I threw my piece  to my shoulder and fired poiut-blank at  the beaqt as ho rose in the air. With,the  flash from tho muzzlo ho came upon me,  struck my rifle from ray hands and knocked mo down. The stock of the rifle falling  across my face as I fell, caught the first  snap of the tiger'si teeth aud was torn and  splintered. c Theii, with the breath  knocked out of my body, I found myself  lying on my back beneath tho'creature,  his fore paws upon my shoulders and, hie  eyes looking straight, into mine.  " Instinctively 1 hold my chin down to  save my throat. -.Tlio tiger about to teor  me, looked angrily round and snarled as a.  shadow fell across us of some ono who had  como to my side. There was a flash and  whistling of steel, thc Bound of cleaving  flesh and bone. The sharp claws set convulsively doeper into my ' shoulders, the  terrible black-barred head fell strangely  forward, and tho tiger, with a movement  as if to spring upward, .tottered aud sunk  upon me.    In an instant 1 was     ���������.  Good I  formed by thickets rising a little higher  than the horaes' backs, with occasionally  an oxien graBsy space to be traversed.  ���������'We were getting near the summit of  the pass where the valley narrowed ahead  to a cauon-like passage between precipitous  cliffs, when the horses became restive, and  it was difficult to got them along. Snorting  and rearing, they kept look int; > off to the  right as if there were something there that  they feared. Tlie guide fell back close to  my horse's neck and looked anxiously in  the direction the horses were going.  " ' What is it?' I asked him, and worked  my breech-loading rifle partly clear of i-a  saddle case so 1 could bring it into play at  ehortnotice.    'Js it a tiger!  " 1 spoke half jokingly, for we'had several such experiences which had amounted  to nothing, but the guide, very serious,  said nothing as' he nodded slightly iu  answer to my question. I remembered the  Huperalilion which keeps a Corean from  pronouncing the word tiger, lost it bring  ihe creature upon him to avenge ttie  familiar use  of its  name, and   begun   to  DKEKCIIliD WITH "BLOOD  spouting from his neck as, liis claws relaxing, ho rolled from mo upon the ground. I  staggered to my feet and stood staring,  half bewildered, at the tiger, the vertebrae of his upek clean divided by tho blow  that had halt severed his head from his  body. Over the dead beast Koyshama  stood, wholly impassive except for the'  still gleam in his eyes, holding with both  hands, point downward, the sword with  which ho had dealt this 'wondrous and  timely blow. '" ' '  '  '  " The Japanese carefully wiped the blade  of his sword, first with grass, then with a  silk handkerchief, and handed it to his  servant to replace in tho scubbard. Ho  seemed to think he had done nothing extraordinary, andrdisclaimed all thanks or  praise. The Coreans, now that there was  nothing to foar, pressed forward to revile  the dead tiger, f made them assist in  taking off the skin, which I offered to  Koyshama, but he insisted upon my keeping it. You can see where it has been  sewed across the neck. - Do you wonder  that the Japanese have shown themselves .  invincible-soldiers iu their campaigns in'  Corea und China ?"

Tho passengers all  crowded about the rail, and some one of  them does'thc story telling, while the others  pester whatever officers may be in the vicinity us to the exact spot that the Elbe  went down. Of course thc otlicors cannot  answer for the exact spot is not known.  Occasionally there is a pathetic scene on  one ol" these trips.  During a recent passage of the Kins,which  is the sister ship of thc Elbe, there was  among the passciigers a man who had lost'  his wife and two ohildrou in tho disaster.  This Iosb hud affected his mind. lie had  come aboard tho ship at Southampton, carrying a large wreath of (lowers. Ha had a  letter to the Captain from the otlicors of  tho steamship company. He thought it was  a mere letter of introduction, but ltwarned  tlie Captain to haven, special watch keptot  him on tlio trip, u.u it, was fcuied that he  might, jump overboard or make away wiih  1-iniself in boiiio other way.  Thus'.ory of the mini's misfortunes got  about among tho passengers quickly. He  was tho object of interest oii the voyage.  Every one sympathized with him, and  some talked with him about his loss. To  those he would rumble oil' a story, always  ending by Inking them to his cabin und  showing them the wreath which he in-  tended putting on their grave. When it  came time for the pnosciigera to gather at  the rail to hour the .story of the disaster  this man was the centre of interest, und hes  himself told tho story. It was neither  very connected nor very clear, but never  before had it hud such interest to a ship,  load of people. The taara streamed down  his face iiB he told it, and Lhcre was hardly  a dry eye on lioiu-d ship. When the officers  ijiiid the Kins was about ovei- tho spot  where tho Elbe went, down, way was made  for thc man to reach the rail und cast  overboard the wreath he carr.cd. He was  tightly held though he did  not know it.  l-'or a long time after he had dropped  the wreath he stood at the rail leaning  over, guzmg into tho water. Ho did uot,  F-poak. .Nor did he when at last he  tHraightetied up and t'.irned, facing the  passengers. Way was made for him again.  Jfo walked silently to his stateroom, occasionally tapping ln������ head withhia finger.  He was seen no more on the   voyage.  <*af!ierc<l   from Various Points   from th������-  Allantlc to lhe I'.tcillc. ,  The Calgary News says that grain buyers  are negotiating for this fall's crop of wheat-  at 6."> cents per bushel. ,'  ii r ,  Nearly every farmer in tho neighbourhood of Penhold, N.

And   it was  this fact which actuated that  . great Semitic statesman, Lord Beacons  field, when he- sent a few India regiments  to Malta at the time of the Russo-Turkish  war. It was a hint to Russia that in tho  event of a single-handed contest Great  Britain could raise on army a million  strong from the   vast resruiting grounds of  '' India.      , t -   -  India,'extending from Cape Comorin in  the south to the Khyber Pass at the  extreme north and from the province of  Sindh on.the west to the newly conquered  province of Burmah on the east, with its  vast population of 300,000,000, presents'  u  , ,      '   ,. AN   UNLIMITED   FIELD  from which to obtain the very best stuff for  soldiers. For it must be remembered that,  .while India is peoplod in some provinces,  such as Bengol'and certain sections of the  South, with effeminate 'races,- -taken aa a  whole the tribes of .Hindustan are among  the most warlike people of the world.  ' It must also be understood that what  are known as "Bengal" regiments are not  made  up  of Bengalm.    There is  probably  , not a single Bengali in the whole army, for  he is not iu any sense a fighting animal.  The Bengalis'are beyond question the most  .intelligent of all' the native raced of India,  and make the very best editors of papers,  and talking politicians, clerks and salesmen,  but they are not soldiers.. It is said that  in tho'great mutiny of 1S57-58 there was a  certain Bengali who, having beea shut up  in the fort, did many deeds of bravery, but  1 upon his release spent some days in tilling  sheets oftfoqlscap with carefully worded  statements of the reasons why he could not  run away. -   ,    '  The Bengali jb tho native of India most  frequently found in London, walking the  hospitals, or studying law in the Inns of  Court, or at Oxford aud Cambridge preparing*; for a B. A,, and comequeutly .he is  regarded too frequently as the truest type  , of the native of India. But he in no way  represents the vast empire of India. Tho  whole presidency of Bengal has a population of about 70,000,000, but only one-half  of ttiie population consists of Bengalis.  ,  THE  OKE.VT  FIGHTING   RACES  of India are the Mahrattas, iu the .presidency of Bombay ; the Goorkhas, from the  native State of Nepaul; the Sikhs in the  province of the Punjab, aud the Afghans  , ou the northwest frontier. ���������- ,  The Goorkha is probably the best soldier  in the world. He is sturdily .built; of an  average height of five feet three inches,  withaphysoignomy which is unmistakably  of a Chinese Tartar character, with  email eyes) a fiat nose, aud  meagre whisk-  ��������� ers. Whether it is fighting hand to hand  with the bayonet or with his national  weapon, a murderous-looking curved knife  with a sharp edge on the inside like a  Eickle,   called the   " kukri,"   or   at   long  1 range, with the modern arms of precision,  it is all one to the Goorkha, 'and he thoroughly enjoys hiniBelf either charging or  skirmishing. ��������� The Goorkhas i������re Hindus in  religion, and are not always averse to  alcoholic indulgence or to hobnobbing  with their English comrades,'and in more  thau one instance very close bonds of union  have oxisted between British and Goorkha  regiments^ In the Afghan war, when encamped before Cabul, it was found that a  certain Goorkha regimenthad arrived without its baggage, aud the. men of a regimeut  of Highlanders readily' lenttheir militury  cloaks   to the Gookha regiment on  a cold  'night.  - >  The singular fighting qualities of thc  Goorkhas were discovered in the Nepaulese  war of 181-1-1G, when tho British troops  met tbetn as enemies for the only tune in  their history. England put in tho field a  force of 30,000, while it is doubtful if the  GoorkhuH has moro than 10,000 men fund it  took two yeara' tough' fighting to bring  thorn to terms. In this war tho Goorkhas  displayed all the splendid material qualities  which have been conspicuous  ON A 11 USDniSI) liATTLl* PIELDS  since, whoa they have been lighting shoulder  to ehoulder with Btitish troops agaiust  .Tats, Murathos, Sikhs, Sepoy,mutineers,  Afghans, Malays, and Burmano. In the  siege/-.!* Kaliiuga, where 000 Goorkhi's were  intrenched in a stockade, they succeeded  iu repulsing five assaults of the ' British.  But it was not until this brave little band  hud lost530 out of its. noble 600,'and had  inflicted on the British the heavy loss of  31 ollicers and 710 men, many more than  its own original nutnbers,that they yielded.  The Goorkhas had scarcely been heard  of before, and had beeu regarded at a distance as mere "niggers," but this mde  ' awakening staggered tho British and made  it evident that the Goorkhas must henceforth fight with the British conqueror us an  ally and not us an enemy.  The littlo proviuco of Nepaul has a  standing army of l.~>,000 men drilled and  armed with old muzzle-loading guns, und  in any emergency could put- inlo the field  more than three times that, number of  cither time-oxpircd men, or mor^who have  some knowledge of soldiering. Indeed,  every family has to contribute one of its  male rr.enibors at least us its quota to the  military establi-hmout, and to a stranger  visiling tho   country every   other man   ho  There are thirteen Goorkha regiments in  the service of th-s British Government, and  in the recent campaigns in Afghanistan  and Chitral these Goorkha regiments were  selected ' for the most important military  service. Sinco 1816 the loyalty of the  Goorkha regiments in the pay of the British Government has never been questioned.  The Sutlej war of 1845-46 brought the  Goorkhas into contact with the Sikhs, und  their conduct at the obstinately contested  battles of Aliwa.1 and Sobraou elicited the  highest coinmendatiDii of the British Generals. In the crisis ct 1857 the faithfulness  of tne Goorkhas was put to the severest  test, but,the-r biavery.at the memorable  (   ' SIEGE OK DELHI  wqb such as to justify  the reputation won  on the Sutlej. '    ,  A race quite equal to the standard of the  Goorkha in his soldierly qualities is the  Sikh, a native of the province of the Punjab. The Sikhs are the followers of the  ,1'rophec Nanak, who flourished at Am-  ritsur in tho middle of tho sixteenth century, and were wielded into a warlike force  by his vicoregent, Govind Singh. -Mr.  Edwin Lord Weeks, who visited India  about two years agi, writes : " A Sikh  regiment on parado is a spectacle which  -oilers Homo novel pointr of difference when  contrasted with the 'material' of most  European armien, with which tho unprofessional observer may be familiar. When  first seen in the distance they present the  appearance of r. long scarlet baud of uniform thickuess, (supported by slender black  lines. As they approach they aro seeu to  bo unusually tall, black-bearded fellows,  uniformed in red tunics, and with great  led turbans, which increase their apparent  height, while close fitting black gaiters  accentuate the thinness of their legs.  Whoever has watched thedrillof theGrena-  dier Guards in Loudou may form an idea  of the precision which sceina to be the  standard of the Sikhs. They may be perhaps u shade more rigid in their good form  with au appearance of greatereflort due to  the fact that European discipline is yet to  them like a strange garment to the wearer."    ,  I'he Sikh is tall, dinewy, and athletic,  supple and feline in his movements, and  endowed with a peculiar'filnesa tor ihe  warlike vocation of a soldier.' The Sikh  soldier of a picked regiment is, usually 6  feet in height; in the average regimentB of  the,Punjab no men are taken under 5 feet  6 inches in height ; in some Punjabi regiments none under 5 feet 7 inches.  Like thc Goorkhas, the Sikhs have  demonstrated to the'British their military  qualifications. Tho battlo of Chillianwalla  was a drawn contest, but Lord Gough was  under the impreasion that he had been  thoroughly defeated by the Sikhs. Like  the GoorkhaB, the Sikhs have t,  ,     * "  A NATIONAL   WEAPON,  a Bteel ring not unlike a quoit which is  flung with great dexterity, and when skilfully handled will cutoff a head or a- limb  at a considerable distance. These rings  are always carried on the turban,' and,"  vvhile they are not regarded as part of the  armament of a Sikh regiment,'they are not  forbidden.  The central place of worship of the Sikh  nation is tiie Golden Temple at Am'ritsar,  in which is preserved the Gninth, the  sacred book of Nanak, the Sikh prophet.  It is a warlike 'place thiB sanctuary of God,  for its priests wear tall, pointed caps, and  bristle with a warlike panoply of ste6l  blades and sharp-edged rings. ' It is in this  temple that the sword of^Govind isykept,  and it is Baid that should the priests raise it  as ' a rallying standard, it would bo the  sacred duty of every Sikh to unite in the  defence ot his nation.  Th'e native soldier who competes with the  Goorkha and the Sikh is the Pathan, or  Afghan. It should be observed that the  Afghans in India are usually called Pa-  thans, and those in Afghanistan by the  national title of Afghans.' The province of  Peshawar, extending from the Khyber Pass  to the Indus and now under British rule, is  inhabited by PathauB, and it is from this  district that many of tho Pathan sol;  diers of the Indian army are enlisted.  But the numerous Pathan tribes inhabiting  tho long line of frontier between India aud  Afghanistan number as many aa 200,000  fighting men, and from these tribes also  the Pathan soldier is enlisted.  . The Pathans in many respects possess all  the soldierly qualifications as well aa many  ot the national weakness of the Irish. They  ire brave but impulsive, and are not to be  compared with tbe Sikh or the Goorkha for  thoir powers of endurance. In addition to  these disqualifications they are notoriously  disloyal, aud. are not thoroughly trusted by  British commanders.    ' ,.  There aro; however, noble exceptions to  the rule, and there ia something in the  Pathan    Sepoys    which    calls    forth   the  until last April were under their respective  commanders-in-chief ; the three armies are  now under the immediate command'of tho  Commander-in-Chief in India.   .  A native regiment in Iudiais commanded  by seven English officers, the commandant,  two wingcommandertjttndfourwingofiicers.  There are also sixteen commissioned native  officers, eight Subadars, or Captiins, and  eight Jemadars, cr Lieutenants. The noncommissioned officers, : all of whom are  natives, are eighty in number, forty havil-  darp.ranking'asEergeants, and forty naioks,  ranking as corporals. In the cavalry the  native officers ranking as Captains are  styled Risaldars, and those ranking as  Lieutenants are called Risaidars. The  chief native officer of a regiment of infantry  is the Subadar-Major, arid that of the  cavalry the Risaldar-Major.  The native cavalry regiments are divided  into cavalry i and lancers. The Bengal  Lancers are among the picked regimentB of  the service. Some of the most flistinguish-  ed native soldiers have been officers in the  Bengal Lancers.  ��������� Even since' the mutiny of 1857 the artillery force of India has been manned by  Europeans. This precaution is taken, as  duriug the mutiny it was found that the  native artillery were the BtrongeBt opposing  forces to the British army. All the forts  in the country are commanded by British  officers and the guns of tho forts are entirely manned by British artillerymen. Two  or three mountain balterieB,' however, are  manned by natives.  ,   A  NATIVE  SEPOY   REGIMENT  usually consists of S00 men divided'into  ten companies. These companies^ are made  up of different nationalities���������one of "down  country " PurbcaB, another of "up-country  Punjabis," a, third of Goorkhas, a fourth  of I'athaDB, a fifth of Dogrus, a sixth  of Sikhs, and so on. And it is in this way  that a combination of forces for the purpose  of mutiny becomes almost impossible.  There are,h'owever, certain class regiments  such as those of the Goorkhas and the  Sikhs. ,    -,  The native regiments are dressed in different uniforms. The Sikhs wear redcoats,  the Goorkhas dark green ; but the ordinary  dress of a native regiment may be described  as coats of mud-colored drill, blue turbans,  drab knickerbockers, and white gaiters.  The pay of a native soldier is singularly  small from our western standpoint, A  private gets S3.50 a,mouth, with a gradual  increase after three years'service and good  conduct. He is provided with two suits of  uniform a year and with blankets. ', "  ' The pension system of the native army is  most liberal and forms the greatest possible  attraction to 'native recruits. It is so arranged by the Government that there can  be no jobbery, aud twice a year the pension  officers visit the great centreB of population  and' pay tho military pensions'. At the  frontier station of Peshawar it not infrequently .happens that an old pensioner will  come across the border for a pension which  he has received for more than forty years  paBt for service done in the great mutiny.  But he will bo lame or decrepit from wounds'  not received in the service of the Government which -pensions him, but in some  frontier expedition against the British. But  this makes no difference. The British  Government finds it wiser to ignore such  instances of disloyalty and to allow nothing, to interfere in its regular system of  pension. Wheu a native soldier tails in  action his wives (and there may be four of  them). are all pensioned as well as their  young children.

It is not the , old Thames���������the Thameo'  that Dickens knew. It is the new Thames  the Thames of which Dickens's son has  made a dictionary, devoted almost entirely  to describing'pleasures. Bui, although tho  days when Rogue Riderhood, Gaffe-'  Hexam, his daughter Lizzie, and water  aiders like them, made tleir pitiful livings  by finding drowned bodies und stealing such  small valuables as were left upon therri  have passed away, tho Thames ia full of  romance, of myatery, of fascination. ' ,  From its upper (reaches where that  dreadful schoolmaster cast hiB victim into  the lock and left him to die, to its lower  docks, where is concentrated the vast  shipping, there ia no part of either, bank  which has not its interesting story. The  Thames is often ao D covered with pleasure craft that , comfortable , rowing is  mpossible, and the scene, gay with the  bright colors of merrymaking women's  clothes, is like the flashing of a ' kaleidoscope. But it is fog-wrapped aud covered  by, the gloom of night, flowing along  noiselessly and smooth, dark, sinister and  self contained, disturbed only by the  plashing oars of policemen who look' for  two things���������  and slowly, heavily approves at night.  There are still thieves who hide along  its banks by day and prey upon its  shipping in the darkness. The Thames  barges are lumbering old craft. One lay  all winter about a mile above Westminster  Abbey. One day the police thought.it had  laid there long enough. They found' that  it was the resort of a gang of thieves.  They returned at night and, after a hard  fight, arrested three rulfians out of six.  '  In the better section of London the  Thames has little, that is exciting about  it. It ia down by the docks���������the East  India docks, especially���������that what is ieft  of its old-criminal life chiefly concentrates.  Several murders, were done tlure last year,  and ships and men innumerable weri  robbed. Down there, too, women take  their part in villainy.

Very  numerous  meets 'i-.ems to  uiiif(-rsi  he a   soldier in dark    blue  thedeeds ot bravery exhibited by these men.  One of tho moat noted Afghans in the  British service was Subadar'DilawarKhan,  a convert to the Christian religion. Some  yeai*B ago he was sent into Central .Asia by  the Viceroy of India,ou a special political  mission, and was imprisoned for some time  in the fort of Chitral. He eventually died  in the snowy regions of Turkestan.' Ho  was a Subadar in the famous Corps of  Guides, which was lead by Coi. Battye in  the storming of Chitral, a short time e.t*o,  when Ba*tye met with a heroic death while  conducting the masterly retreat of his  bravo Guides in the face of an overwhelm-  ine force of the  enemy.  The Guides nre pre-eminently the fighting  corps of the Indian army, "the steel, head  of the lance couched for a defence of India,"  The origin of the corps was curious. It was  rai60d and formed on the principle of set-  ling a thief to catch a thief ; for in the  year 18 Mi l.icut. Lutnsdeu suggested to  the Government that tho hcBt way of keeping quiot the wild frontiersmen of Peshawar  was to form a regiment out of liie motley  race of freebooters then the terror of northern India. Even Dilawar Khan^the Christian Subadar, had once been a mountain  brigand. From the time ot their formation  until the present day the corps of Guides  have seen more haul fighting than any  other regiment in the Indian service. They  are perpetually employed against the predatory hill tribes swarming in the mountainous districts of the northern frontier,  in expectations of which the public hear  little or nothing, but which, nevertheless,  afford ampli} scope for the fine fighting  qualities of the Guides.  The regiment iB made up of Pathans,  Sikhs, Goorkhas, aud Punjabis. The  different troops and companies (for it is  both an infantry and cavalry regiment) are  composed entirely of men of the same  religion and nationality. This arrangement has L'iven to oach company and troop  a separate esprit de corps, and the ambition  of each is to eclipse its rival in valor  ugainst tho common foe.

Her  face, gray iu the fading light, and without  its usual welcoming smile, looked drawn  and worn. For a moment the girl's heart  stood still. A flood of thoughts swept over  her. Ah, when had she seen her mother  lying down before ! How blind, how  blind she had been I  A low; quivering sigh broke from her as  she knelt at her mother s'side. She bent  her ear to catch the faint, fitful breathing.  O,' if Bhe could atone for the past !  She thought of the gay company she had  had since coming back from school, and of  how little she had helped with the extra  work. She thought too of her spasmodic  resolve to let her mother rest in the morning, while she herself got .breakfast���������aud  of how it had all come to' naught, or  alnioBt naught. Her eyes rested on her  mother's worn, - black dress���������her best���������  and she caught her breath bharply as she  thought of the needed new one that had  been given up that she might have a jaunty  jacket " like the other girls." And now  ���������0, Father in heaven ! Her mother no  longer b'reathed. The sweet, unselfish  life had taken flight.  For aa instant the girl seemed as if turned to stone. Then a cry of anguish broke  from her pallid lips. Great drops, of  perspiration stood out on her forehead.  Her mother, her mother ! She sat up and  gazed wildly about. The first rays of the  morning sun were flooding the room. A  half blown rose wan peeping lovingly in at  tho opeu window, as if welcoming her lo  all the brightness und glory of a new day.  There was a slight uoise iu the adjoining  room. She glided to the door. Her  mother had risen, and with noUclcaa footsteps was preparing her simple toilet.  She looked,up inquiringly us her daughter  entered.  " Mother mino," said Grace, putting her  arm about her and kissing her, oh, so  tenderly, " from this time forth 1 am going  to take some of the burden of life from  your shoulders !" Then she passed swiftly  from the room and down into the kitchen.  Her heart sang a pieau of thanksgiving.  Her mother yet lived to be cherished and  cared tor. O, she would smooth away the  tired lines, and in these later days the dear  mother heart should know soirlethiug of  rest and pleasure.'  And she kept her word. , When the gay  young company came again, their happiness  and com foil were looked after, but it was  all subservient to the-greater and dearer  charge. And when one day the little  mother stood on the platform waiting for  the tr^in which should bear her far away  to the eastern homestead and the dear, old  father���������a holiday planned and provided  for by the loving care and foresight of  Grace���������she felt that she was indeed blessed  in such a daughter.  And as Grace caught thc reflection of  brightness and happiuess from her mother's  face, her own was irradiated.  They find them. To no part of London  has greater effort towards reform been  devoted than to the Thames. Along its'  banks the most desperate and cunning of  the biggest city's criminals once nightly  gathered. In those days barges at anchor  and ships docks were forced to guard their  property'as they were in'a place where  law and order did not exist. More than a  dozen murders were done by ������,Thames  thieves in one week years ago, and a  drunken man wns almost certain to lose,  his valuables and like aa not his life; if he  ventured near to the strange river.  , At that time the banks were lined with  the old arches, over the feet of which the  river ran at high tide, and which,, on the  ebb, were th'e resort of the city's poor and  wicked. An old picture shows u hundred  outcasts Bleeping on the stone ' flooring  between the pillars of one ot these arches.  But that was before the days of the  Metropolitan Police. Now a great floating  dock at the side of Victoria Embankment  iB the headquartera of one' [of the most  perfectly disciplined and thoroughly com',  potent bodies of police iu the world. The  arches have been replaced by.thii very  embankment, and others which, like it,Iine  the Thames with solid atone walls surmounted by pleasant driveways or staid  business streets. The docks are well  patrolled, and the old-time desperate  cwater8ide characters have to a great extent  passed into history. ,  The Thames has been reformed, as White-  chapel has. London succeeded incurbing  crime born of poverty better than she has in  fighting other kinds of crime born of luxury  and'wealth. Still the Thames ia not without  its wickedness. Civilization has not yet  advanced so far'as to" prevent a murderer  from occasionally throwing his victim into  ITS i'.LtCK WATERS,  and a part of its advance seems to have  been the increase. of the number of aelf-  murderers who throw themselves into,' it.  Thus,the policemen arenot, without employment. They often find what they are looking  for.  London Bridge���������that historic structure  which has been falling dowu ever since  Mother Goose became popular���������seems to be  the favorite springboard of the miserables  who wish to leap into eternity. Scores  jump from it every year, aud it is a tradition in Scotland tfard that its suicides  give -the greatest trouble to the police.  They seem to generate puzzling mysteries.  One night last winter one women aud three  men jumped from London Bridge between  midnight-and 5 A. M. Ordinarily it is  simply necessary for' tho patrolman to  catch the body with a boat hook, tow it  ashore and turn it over to the coroner. But  sometimes it is not so simple. The woman  hi this instance was the wreckage left' in  the wake of a young nobleman's dissipation  and it is always a-uuisunco in England for  a young woman of that, Bort to kill herself.  It attracts public attention to her aud to  the aristocrat.  Another of that night's human flotsam  was a mau who hud the bad taste to write  a loug letter to the papers showing that he  had been literally driven lo his death by  the laws of England, which v\ould not permit him lo make it living, insisting ou  sending him to jail if he did not, clothe his  children well enough to permit them to  appear at schiol. Tho third was well  dressed and of a finely bred appearance.  -���������When it was finally found out that he was  a member of a family well known but affected with un insane taint there was trouble  in hiding his name.  THE    FOURTH   VICTIM  wasa man who could have given information  in a most important criminal cuse. So even  the suicides from London Bridge go to swell  thc chorus of Sir Arthur Sullivan's song  that " A Policeman's Lot Is Not a IIuppv  One."  There arc many suicides from' other  Thames bridges. One policeman who  found one dead man after another every  night for a week was weak enough to go  mad from the horror of it.  The- most dramatic suicide of late yeara  apparently gave a hint to the man who  devised the ballet at the Empire Music  Hall, whore the scene .which must have  occurred bofore tho two victims jumped is  nightly acted in pantomime, although ou  tho stage the episode lias a happy ending.  A wife, driven to desperation by her husband's gambling, wrapped her seven-year-  old daughter to her breast with her thin  old shawl and jumped into tho Thames,  thus snuffing out not only her own life, but  also that of tho child whoso wants her  husband's craze for gaming would not permit her'to satisfy.  But huicide is not the only crime which  the Thames ripplingly laughs   at  by  day  More or lho Slory ofa  lilrl'i Tlirillln^ l',y  I.erlenee in n Itiiriilns Itnllouii.  In lhe little town of Gympie, New South  Walei, about'a month ago, according to  papera brought to Victoria, B. C, by the  Australian steamer Mioweru, u crowd of  curious sightseers were treated to an exhibition which for the time held them spellbound with heartB that seemed no longer  to beat, aud which when the terrible ten-  Bion was relaxed and they knew they were  not to be witnesses of an awful though  fascinating fatality, left ihe strongest men  as weJ������k aa children and as hysterical as  womer.  The town and country roads had hoen  billed with flaming posters for weeks before  announcing that on the 13th of April MUee,  Essie Viola, the Queen of American aeronauts, would give a balloon ascension anil a  parachute descent. The day camo and the  expectant little folk of Gympie gathered  with their elders to see the show.

Viola ki'sed her huuda,to the crowd,  seized hold of the bar of her trapeze ae'the  balloon tugged and strained at its ropes.  All was ready and the balloon would the  next moment be released in thc accustomed  way, when the accident occurred, Swinging sideways the ' fringe of the air, hag  caught the flame and in st-irt.led surprise  those who were holding the balloon prisoner until they received the release signal let  go their hold. The next iroment the great  gray bag shot upward, crowned with  A VICIOUS SIIKKT OF I'LiAMK. ������  The aeronauthad been waiting her signal,  her hands mechanically holding tight to  the slender trapeze bar upon which her midair feats were to be performed. There vvas  a,cry of horror as the crowd realized the  tragic situation, and oOO pairs of hands  were outstretched to grasp lhe unfortunate  performer. It was too late. The balloon  rose in the air, .mounting rapidly, tlieu  listed to west and swept with tho breeze in  that .direction, au altitude of fully a mile  being reached almost before the, horrified  crowd of onlookers could realize what they  were unwillingly witnessing. The young  aeronaut retained all her presence of mind,  for she realized that she required it.        *'  The upward flight of the balloou'-was a  series of jumps, aud the balloonist, with  extreme difficulty, maintained her seat and  cast occasional furtive,. glances upward.  The fire she, as well as those below, could seo'  was spreading rapidly, and her mind and  hands were busy. Winding one leg about  the side rope of the trapeze, she coolly proceeded'to unfasten the parachute. Its ropes  h������'l become tangled in the escape of the  balloon und it seemed that it would be  impossible to detach it before the fire completed the destruction of the uir bag, which  was rapidly losing ��������� its buoyancy and  threatened to collapse. Standing with one  foot on the trapeze bar and the other  pointed in space to balance the lithe figure,  Mile.

Then as she abandoned the  trapeze and seized the parachute with both  hands the crowd below- saw that she had  risked everything on the parachute and  that it .was indeed-  a i.eai* roR LIFE.  In silence they   watched   tho parachute  drcp,at, first refusing,to open,and apparently pushing the  woman who - clung   to   it  down to a certain und horrible death,  Tncn it began to open,and oven aa it did  so a second gasp of horror' escaped the  spectators, it, too, was on fire. Slowly  it descended at first, then more slowly, as  it caught the air' und was brought nearer  and nearer tho ground.  The breeze had died away and thc debris'  of the balloon was following the parachute  and its passenger straight down. When it  i.e.ired the earth the utrl was seen to draw  her limbs together as though preparing for  tho last net. Then, watching her opportunity, she dropped clear of thc burning  muss and alighted on tho ground absolutely  unhurt.  The balloon and the parachute struck tho  ground almost together. The girl was  trembling when tlio crowd reached her  but theie was no sign of hyster-cal reaction  and her nerves were stronger than those of  her manager.  "1 told you ' it would, go that way some  time if you didn't look out for it," alio said  to him us he came up, and thero was no re-  ply.  Later iu the ovening a correspondent of  the Australian Star tMked to her. She was  very nervous then and realized fully the  extent of tho peril in which she had  been. <>  "No, 1 never had quite so close a call,"  she said, "and I never want t.o again. If  don't get better soon I guess I'll quit the  huainebs and go back to variety work. It's  not. so ihrilling, but it's not so hard on the  nerves.  "Who am I 1 Well, I was born iu San  Francisco and lived thero till I was 10, so  I guess I'm a San Franciscan. I travelled  with half a dozen circuses, though, and am  best, known as one of the Livingstones."  A correspondent cables from London as  follows:���������Clouds ure thickening with ominous swiftness about England. 'Saturday's  Speaker, which is tho r intimate organ of  the Government, talks about the possible  necessity of an English fleet steaming from  Beyrout to Constantinople and occupying  Mityleue, or Samoa,' or easier still, taking  prpper advantage of the fact that Cyprus'  is under British control. It says iu so  many words, that if Russia and France  withdraw from concerted pressure ou the  Porte the British Government will,have tb  go on alone. , ' "    ,  "Our duty now ia to sec that our word*  are backed by deeiio." I quote this brief  sentence iih perhaps tho most important  which has been pruned in Europe for a  long time. That lhey open up very sinister,,  possibilities beforo thc British people ia  only too clear.  ENULA.ND   IN 'A 1-OSITION i'Ul.I, OF   DANOBIiS.  Fully a year ago those despatches laid  stress'upon tho remark of trained 'statesmen here, made to me half in prophecy,  half in actual knowledge, to tho effect  that Lord Rosebcry would try by'the device of a big foreign splash to make good  politically what he was losing, ut homo.  One is bound to recall this now, when the  Premier'-! personal organ talks as it does  about the , next general election being  fought amid au Ameniun Atrocity Agitation. No one can 'say that thc situation  as it exists has beeu deliberately planned,  but there has been all along a plain disposition to fish in troubled waters on the  part of,the English Ministry, and in ono  way or another England has certainly'beeu  put into a position full cf danger, from  which the Ministerial p.ipers now aro telling her that she .must cut her way out,  sword in hand.'  RUSSIA AND FRANCE UNCONCERNED.  The position itself is, of course, nothing  new.    Euglanil iB.alwH.y8 drifting into such  positions,     and   'somehow���������heaven   only,  '  knows how���������stumbling   out   again,   with  nobody much' the worse for the experience.  But this time there is an element otdeliber-  ateness which   is   usually   lacking^ _Thp  English papera have had an overwhelming?^  mouopoly of Armenian outrage,literature.  Russia andcFrunce have not in  the least  made the subject ono of popular concern,  and their governments have consentod  to  join England iu representations to the Porte  on general diplomatic grounds, without any  pretence that  their peoplea were excited  about the thing.  They are free������to drop out  to-morrow, ' with  no further  explanation  than .that they have  done ail that they    .-  promised'to do, which waato tell the Turk  he   really   ought to  behave  better.    But  England    is    iii.   a     different     position.  Thousands of her politicians, pulpit orators   ���������  and public spirited men stand ready and  eager, waiting to rush forth, fiery ci-obs iu  hand, to preach a new crusade against the  ,,  infidel and commit l'?ugliind heudlong to ar.  armed solitary intervention in the East.  It  would be hard  lo  say just  how far  tho  Ministry itself is responsible for this highly  inflamed  and perfectly   organized   public   ,  opinion,   under  the pressure  of   which it  conveniently finds itself .now, being pushed  along toward the gravest  possible crisis ;  but there the facta are and they are serious   .  enough.

What haB, been said about the very doubtful good faith of Russia, and Frauce in the  matter only borrows nevv force from tbe .  events of this'week. -If the Sultan knew  thatall three powers were in solemn earnest  he would not be shilly-shallying in this  contemptuous fashion. It becomes more  and more evident that he possesses quite  ditierent. information.  Everybody hero feels in his bones that at  some point iu the game England will suddenly find herself alone' with the whole  burden of the adventure ou her own unaided shoulders, und very likely with her  present partners ranged against her to  boot.  -Rain and Railway Tracks.  Locomotive engineers like to have the  truck wutcrcd occusionally by a good heavy  rain, as they get glpusy after a long period  of dry weather and the wheels will not tune  hold, just as the knife grinder's wheel will  not tttko hold unless it is kept wet.   .

This Turkish business is so immediate  and urgent that people here are nor-paying much attention to events on tho other  side of Asia. They have apparently, how-  evur, a close relation to binidry phases of  tho intrigue on the Bosphorus. Russia,  which historically is a borrowing (government, is posinc as a lender to China. She  gets SS0,O00,0OO Jroiii the French at 4 per  cent., lends it to China at, 5 per cent., und,  takes upon herself the undivided responsibility for securing the debt. This will  oxplain the presence of her soldiers iu  Mimchurift and numerous other' things of  the sort which we have been hearing about  during the summer. This ingenious device  by which Russiagels the irangible rewards  of Japan's vi'-tories is not vividly appreciated in Paris, where Russian securities  tumbled heavily j esterday on the Bourse,  but it ia a beautiful Slavic conception  none the leas, and since the French are  schooling themselves to admire all things  Muscovite, they will havo to" accept it as  one of their new partner's characteristic  little foibles.  So Europe stands at the end of a week,  in' which apprehensions of trouble have  heen steadily piling up day by day. For  once even the politicians in the House of  Commons arc thinking more about the  foreign outlook than about domestic wrangles, and ail Bigns Beem to indicate that  they will have reason to be still more engrossed in it as midsummer approaches.

THE DAY WE CELEBRATE.
Our National Anniversary Duly Honored
���  in Revelstoke with an Athletic
Programme.
Revelstokians are nothing if not
patriotic, and, as a consequence, the
anniversary of the Dominion's , natal
day was littingly commemorated by
them,   i
The committee of arrangements,
notwithstanding the very limited time
;it their disposal, Lad a most creditable
.cash prize list to offer for the 21 events
of a varied and interesting programme,
till of which went oIE without a hitch ;
thubnly unpleasantness being caused
by Jupiter Pluvias who would not hide
his time and made several partially
successful efforts to dampen the ardour
of the holiday makers.
Kich event on the' programme was
keenly contested, and the unanimity
with which thedecisions were acquiesced in hy all the participants added not
alittletothe enjoyment of the occasion,
a condition which is sometimes wanting in athletic sports. Tlio scores made
in the various events were-not at all
!narvelous,aud no records were broken,
but nevertheless a most enjoyable time
vvas had not only hy the spectators but
also hy those taking an active part in
the spoits.
1 Owing, no doubt, to the' threatening
state of the weather and a few. counter
attractions, the- crowd of spectators
was not as large as was the case .last
year; but amongst the goodly number
who did turn out to witness the sport
there was no lack of enthusiasm which
was unabated until it culminated in
the tug of war���-the final number of
the programme.
The first event���trap shooting���commenced tit 10 o'clock a.m.', ten birds at
known angles, H. A. Brown,J.I. Wood-
row and J. G. Barber were the successful competitors in the order named.
J. G. Burlier was also winner of the
sweepstake.

competitors in the various events ,in

Closing E zeroises of the Public School.
Tin* closing of the public school which
is the chief educational institution of
Revelstoke, always excites an unusual
interest among the friends of education and especially the 'parents whose
children attend. On Friday Lust week
the closing examination took place
and there we're a large number of
parents and townspeople present. The
examinations of the classes in the various studies'occupied the, eh tire afternoon, there being-'very'lit tie time for
other exercises.
The rolls of honor for the. year-were
���awarded as follows : '   ,
Proficiency,��� Violet Olivia   Northey.
Deportment,���Lilly Maln-I Valentine.
Regularity iind Punclualit y���William Beavo. This is (,he fourth year in
succession that " Willie" Beavo has
won this distinction.
The scholars showed great progress
in t.heii studies during the past year,
which does them much credit', hut
more partirulaily fo the teacher, Mr.
F. W. L.-iing, whose painstaking and
infelligent management I,of the school
is shown in tlie gratifying progress of
the pupils. The. number of children of
school age is now becoming so large
thiit ah assistant is required, in justice
to the teacher as well as the pupils.
At the close the children were treated to ice-cream, fruit, ��� candies, cakes
and other good things, supplied
through the efforts of a number of
their friends. Remarks were made
hy Messrs. Temple, Allen, Fraser and
Valentine.",The vacation will be six
weeks in length.
Mr. Liiing left on the' train Wednesday morning for Ontario, but it is
hoped and expected that he will return
and resume,his ,position at the head of
the school. ��� '    <
