[BY   OCR COKRESPONUEXT.]  Tlii.s t'.-imp is nitieli excited ovei (he  new finds on, the North Fork of the  Illecillewaet. The location is ahoiit-  20 miles up from Albert'' Canyon', ami.  is reached by following tlie North Fork  to its sources, and crnsMii"; westerly to  the headwaters , of Downie Creek,,  about one mile from the summit. J.  P. Kennedy, Oie Sandberg and Tom.  Marshall have staked four claims and  done some work on. them, and have  justieturned, bringingin miiiiiisplendid  samples of. Ihe ore, showing gre> -  copiie'r, silver; lead, copper and it is  believed a proportion of gold. The  vein is in liuie.*.|.one and is ahoui. .jfjfcel  wide, containing 0 t.o S fi-ol, of shipping  (ire.  The great* need for opening a trail up  the North Fork becomes more urgent  everyday. It ih' nob only this new  field that is to be aided by it, but all  the previously' discovered claims on  the westeily slope , after eios'sing the  divide fiom the. Maple Leaf, must have  an outlet by way of the North Fork to  tlie railway at. .Albert Canyon. Many  of the best mines of the district, the  Whale, Jumbo, and others; owned by  Corbin iV: Kennedy, as well as by a  number of individual holders, are  located along the No: th Fork.  '"Ben. Green lias put $200 worth of  work on the Blue Bell, aiid has finish-  ( d the assessment on his claims on the  North Fork. Ile started for ,l,legina.

'  - J ihn' Ba'rr arrived on Wednesdav  from Big- Bend,- and' left, Tluu-tiday  nioMiing for Beaver. Himself, John  Swords and three others started from  Donald last September foi* a long prospecting, trip around the Big Bend .of  the Columbia. Three of the party came  out last   fall,'but   Ban-   aud   .Swords  o  made camp in Wood liver for the  ���������winter, where, the snow was four feet  deep. In April they left Wood river  and ascended the Canoe about75 miles,  15 miles above the big log jam. Nothing  of value was found either in quartz or  placer, and Ban- believes the .district'  they were'in is outside of the mineial  li.-lt, utiles it is higher upon the Canoe  where that, river .reaches around to tlie  left, or west towards' Cariboo. They"  got a few hundred dollars worth of  furs. On the way' down. Swords  stopped at Smith,Creek and hired out  to,tlie Hydraulic Mining Company as  cook. Bare went np Downie Creek intending lo crofts the divide and follow  Gold river clown to the Upper Columbia, but the snow was so deep lie could  not make it. He,'intends next to  pro.spect. the Gold lJiuige, between 'the  Columbia river and Turn Tun) and  Adams Lakes,an.1 Seymour Pass.     ���������'  'NEEDS OF THE COUNTRY.  What ca Practical Man Has to Say About  Our Necessities.  Better trails and moie of them; a  smelter adequate' to tlie needs"of the  conn try. and centrally located; less  exorbitant.expectations, iu the matter  of pi ice, by the owners of prospects.  These aie the three essentials in the  develnpmciit-of the mining industry of  this province, according to Lane C.  Gilliam, a gentleman well and favorably known in the Slocan, where he,  has operated for a number of years.    '  Mi. Gilliam arrived on the Marion  o.i Tuesd iy, fiom tlie , Lardeau. He  has been into Trout Lake visiting the  Wagner Group, located at the head of  HXealey (/'reek. XMr. Gilliam has a bond  on this property, and, associated with  him are some Spokane ��������� people whom  he is interest ing in the district. It  was with a view lo finding whether  si rangei s could get in to see the  local.ihn that be visited the group. The  time   being   opportune    he    left    for  Spokane   Wednesday    morning    and  ment work, among whom'are B.iinand j expects to return with his friends next  Boyd, the Lanark Co., Mr. iticliardson  on the '��������� Pride, of Illeeillewael," Archie  Chishnlm on the "Goat Cave," Walter  ���������Scott and Andrew Mtancstrom several  claims on' Fish Creek, a large miiiibei  fin the North Foi k, and some of the  Silver Bow group. The general teport  is that, the lodes are widening out and'  improving. '  -  The work on the Maple Leaf has so  far been preparatory to thc full execution of the plans projected by I,lie  company . represented by Mr. John  Granl, who is on the ground to supervise their execution.  It is a niatlei of great interest to the  Illecillewaet dis..rict where the. big'  smeller is to lie. loealed iu West Koot-  enjiy. If wc cannot have it at Albert  Canyon, which is the most central  place to our mines, and where plenty  of good ground can be had for a site,  we. hope it will be built at Hevelstoke.  Illecillewaet, July 15, 1M)5.  Two Great Conventions:  ���������What -is   said   to   have    l.cen  largest convention of   the    kind  held, came to a   close   at  Ji i>ton  Sunday,   when   ">0.000   Christian  deavoiiti-.; and their ���������Viends,   who  the  ever  last  Kn-  liiel  been attending the annual gatlieting,  dispersed for Ilieir homes.

If it's a go, he'says,   they  will  begin operations at. once.  In speaking of   the   general   mining  oullook    in     Kootenay,    Mv.   Gilliam  thought it was improving.   The future  of   the.   country   was  undoubted,   but  there weie several necessary essentials  to   its   development.     Transportation  was (i matter of  the  liist  importance,  and he could not emphasize tonstiong-  ly the necessity for  heller   roads   and  11 ails, and more of them.    A   smelter,  which would answer Ibe requirements  of the counl ry, was a necessary adjunct  to its development.    Apart   fiom  saving lhe  smelter   should   be   centrally  loealed,    he    would     not    hazard    an  opinion as to where it should he  erected : saying, that mailer could safely be  left lo   the   people  who   would   invest  i.heii money in the   enterprise.    What  he   coiisi lered  -a   drawback   was* tl.e  fancy prices at   which   Ihe   owners   of  claims, generally, were   holding   their  properl ics, wliich in most   eases   were  mere     prospects.       This     dog-in-the-  maiiger policy had'a tendency   lo   discourage capital and make it look   elsewhere for invest ment, and   the  inevitable n suit would be to discourage   the  pios;>eclor himself and retard (I   velop-  mei't.  He was sanguine about ihe Lirdeau  di-.tricl, saying, be believed, with 'its  piesent. disaliilit ie-. removed, il- would  prove a ri( her field for iiiv--.lii.e:it I ban  even the Slocan. lie had heard from  aiilheiilic sources of (lie wonderful  wealth ol mineral in Ibis pari of the  Ivooleii.iy country, and wh-il he had  seen of il. had impressed him very favorably.

only flower of love which she had bequeathed to his care.
" I intrusted my child to you," said
the Spirit ; "what have you done wnli
her ? She should be by your bedside,
attending and comforting you. "Why
is she nut heie ?"
In his delirium he had no words of
self-justification to ofter, and his stat��,
therefore, was all the more wretched.
He lose from his bed, weakened and
piematurely aged. It was fortunate
for him that, upon sickness overtaking
1 mi, he had falltn into honorable
hands ; for, of course, it became known
(hat lie was a man of wealth and
means. It was this knowledge which
opened up to him the prospect of an
enter/ii=e which he eagerly seized as
a me ins, ��iot of'making more money,
for th it desue had , entirely left him,
but of mental occupation. This enter-
pn1--* was m i-oniiection with a new
i.'ulway line, and before lie had fully
C'iniiiiilU d himself to it his nuiuirk'S
,.nd investigations, k*d him to Washington. _ '
There it vvas during the first week in
licet iiiIk r, lh.it a slrarge adventure
nee in led. He h"d been in the city
but a lew diys when, walking in the
d'lociion of Capitol 11111, a man walked
past him v hose i.it.- Mashed upon him
as a mcmoiy. Air. Ingletiold 'was
weak and attenuated, and his steps
wei-. nect'��siril> slow. Now, the'steps
of thL. man lie saw were brisk aiid
buoyant
"And yet," thought :Ur. Inglelleld,
rs he mused upon the memory, " if that
'callv be Uasil Punr'iyii, liis movements'
vould pcanejy be so.liihe. lie is as
old as 1   am " ,   '
He judged of others'by,himself.
Jn his /waking moments during the
night the idea tlu.t ii was' Basil, his
uki mend, who had passed him in the
stieet, became strengthened, and on fhe
follo'ving morning he .rnade inquiries
>'. hether anj person of the 'litune of
tVi.ihvn livdcliin the nsightborhood of
Capitol Hill. H happened that his,
in mines were made in the right quarto
"Oil, yes." was the answer; " Mr.
Penihvn���queei old lellow���lives on tht.*
Hill."
'" Do you kno.vv if his name is Uasil ?"
asked Mr   Inglelleld.'  ,,
" Ves,"    was    the    reply,    " that ^   is
his name���Mr.  Basil Ponrhyn."
"A queei  old teilow,  you said ?"
"Yes,   I   meant   it,   but   queer   in   a
good way.     The childien have reason
to  think well of him."
" Whose children ''"
" All childien " ,  ���
" J">o vou mean his own ?" ,
" No ;  he has none  that 1  knor.' of.
He live* alone "
"Why, then, should all children
liave reason I i think well of him ?"
"Uecuise," was the reply, "ho is
K'i��s Kringle's lieiib nant."
" Ivi iss Kringle's lieutenant!" ex-
i l.nmi-d Mi. Inglefield, much bewildered ,by this explanation.' "1 do not
i.i.delistand   '
"Pet haps jou never, heard of Kriss
Ki ingle?"
" He is Santa Claus, is he not ?". asked Mr   Inglefield.
" Ye��, ICriss Kimgle and Santa'kClans
aie one and the same. In most of
our Sttites he is known es Santa Claim:
m a lew, as Knss Krinqle. But il'is
a long story foi me to tell, and I. have
no time to spare If you arc acquainted  with  Sir.   Penrhyn"	
' I knew him,'" said Mr. Inglefield,
" many yeai s ago, when I was a young
man       We were fiiends."
" Then 'y;o to him, and you will hear
ns strange and pleasant a story as, ao*
ci idmg to my leckonmg, a man could
listen to "
Mi. Jngl'.fieid acted upon the advice
in the evening of tno same day, and
had little dillicultj in discovering the
hou=o :n which Basil Penrhyn lived.
He saw, fiom its exterior, that it must
be a laige house, with many rooms in
it, altogether too huge and too roomy
loi a man who lived alone. He knocked at the dooi, and a' woman answered the summons
" Does Mr Pem'hyn live here ?"
" Yes.  sir "

"Will  you  kindly  take my  name  to

ABOUT THE HOUSE.
How to Cook a Ham.
There are few articles that are so often
spoiled in the suring and made worse in
the cooking as a ham. A pioperly cured
ii'am is a most delicious joint. The ham
used for broiliDg ouyiit to be carefully
boned. This a a comparatively easy matter,
if there is a small, slender'boning knife at
hand. In order to do this work properly,
study the position of a boue.in a leg of
broiled hum, aud the location of the joint.
The first work of the boning'knife must be
done around the joint, being careful to keep
close to the bono, without disturbing the
fleali any more than jh necessary. The joint
rtmoveii, the lecbone can be easily taken
out,* running ,tlie knife down around Vfce
bone in. tliu shank end and u^ain ffl^o <&~i
joint. Having honed tho ham, sew a up
in a film, evun bundle, leaving a flap of
cloth to turn where the slicing is to begin.
Cut the ham lor boillne in whole shcoi as
thin as a very sharp knilu tvilloutit. Keep
the ham as cold ad possible. Warm ham
will not cut as easily as chilled meat. Afler
slicing, replaco th<- flip of clot!-, over the
.ham and pin it securely iu place.
A boiled hum should weigh about seven
or eight pounds, Heavier hams are not in
likely lo he lender. \Va>h and sorapo the
ham thotoughly; put it into cold water
oyer night. In the morning wipe il oil,ami
put it iii, a large kettle of co'd water,
Bring it slowly lo the boiling point and let
il box! slowly until done. Tho lime will
depend on the weight, of ham and' its
tenderness. When it is dono,''take it up,
and eet away tho pot, with thejiam and'
the hrjuor in which it was cooked around it.
Ho careful to put it in a place wheie it will
cool rapidly, but not where it will freeze.
The open air is the best plac,e. r' Cooling the
ham in this way insures its being moist and
juicy. If ilia to bo served hot,,lake U. up
after il has cooled in the liquor it was
boi.ed in for J'2 hours. Skin it, dot it with
coit^dotaof pepper, dredge it thickly wilh
sifted bread crumbs, and sprinkle over
about a lablespoonful of granulated sugar.
Put the ham m tho oven'ami lei it buke
ior about half an hour, until ivell'browned.
Saving- Shoes.
We .should not black them before they
quite need it, for, .in so doing,,we hasten
ilieir demolition. The boots become soiled,
we s'nuetitway conclude their glory 13
gone and thickly daub them with blocking,
leaving, perhaps, 'much of ihe mud underneath the blacking. If care be taken, tho
��� lay for blacking may bo indefinitely warded off.
Whoua boot is muddy, let it dry before
trying to knock the mud oil'. Then lightly
rub, being careful not'to rub it inlo the
leather. Take a soft cloth, dusting care-
'ully, when it vvili clean with very little
stain. Take a damp woolen eloth, which
wiil remove all the stain. Waini water is
thc best to use. This simple, process will
keep the sIigob iu nice order, while, if the
jhots are blackened each time, the grain
will soon become so filled with it that it
will stilien'uud crack.     , ,
If you should iu a storm get them' very
wet, wipe them as dry us possible with u soft
cloth, Iiii them with paper lo shape them,
and put them in a warm place to diy. If
this is carefully carried out, your boots
will be stiff, but,with an old loose glove ou
the hand work some vaseline, a little at a
time, all over the shoe. After standing a
few houis, the weather will absorb it, and
any rood blacking will give it a nice polish,
being also pliable and soft.
. Patent leather shoes or slippers should
be warmed slowly before pulling them on
to prevent cracking. Passing the hand
over the surface will have the eilect.
Flavor  of Water^
It is often the simplest details of kitchen
labor that  are the   most,  neglected.    The
hot-water kettle, for example.    How many
cooks pay any attention to it 1 Stale water,
immered und witu aii vitality   cooked out
ia its perennial portion, with an occasional
tilling up aud sudden boiling as tlie need
requites. If eveiy housekeeper who re.ida
this paragraph should go straight to' her
kitchen, lift the ketilo and cairy it to ihe
window where a strong light will disclose
its inteiior, nine out of 10 of tliein will iind
a uisty layer of lime, iton and dregs, that
eileotually presents any good flavored water
trom issuiiur from it. The kettle needs the
oame fiequent, and thorough cate that any
kitchen utensil needs. Into such, having
it already warm, put fresh, lilteied water,
boil tapidly and use at once, anil one of
the  large aids to palatable food is secured.
'     AT HIS WIFE'S GRAVEL
Tor   Firirrii' Years   a    I��ev.ifrjJ   If���-���.li.tiiri
Ha* Lived iu a. Vvmctery.
"If you die, 1 will sleep by the side of
your grave all the rest of my life." This
remarkable vow was made fifteen years ago
to his sick wife by J'Mvviu L. Morrison, at
that time chief clerk' of the Per.uilyvania
freight deparlment,atMiamiville,Ohi -. For
twelve days after his wife's death Morrison's
grief was to great too allow him to fulfill his
vow.' He lived at Camp Ueniaon,and when
the stupor left him ho built a rude.hut at
the side of hia wife's grave in the Miami-,
ville Cemetery. To tbe sexton, who protested at first, Morrison said that be was
receiving .$33 a month to watch the grave.
Time' went by, and the man still sat
in his hut fazing at tho grave. At
last the keeper of the ceinewry learned
ins story. Now Kdwiu L. Morrioon. once
the handsome railroad man, ie old, wrinkl-
od and haggard, but still situ in his rude
hut by the side of tiie grave of the woman
lie loved so'well. I'or tifleen yeois lie has
kept up tliis Holemn vigil..

Iy known by ever} child in tiie village, and '
few persons visit the aciiueslcrud littlo
town of Miamiville who full lo hear the '
sad stoty ot Kd. Morrison. In rain or
shine, Bummer or winter, he lingers around
that little spot, of,green turf. He- sel torn
talks long ot his wife now. A small Hible
is in his hut. It contain!) the names and
dateH of the birth ot several boys find girls
of his name, but most prominent upon this
page ot record aio lhe words " Maiy L.'
Morrrison 'died April 21, IS.SO," written
with a lead r pencil in a very irregular,
trembling hand. Here and there in his
Bible''are mm ked pa.s-.ages and fohied
leaves. Aniong'these' is a veruo from I.
Samuel, beguiniug : " Whereas, I have
not dwelt iu' any house," etc.,, doubtless
referring to his hermit life. Another veise,
farthei on m tho book, is completely obliterated by a pencil scratch',' while m tho
margin near it is wiitien . " The fifth
commandment, null aud void." The grave
of his wife is unmarked by head or .foot
stone. t ��� "'
".I have never put  up a monument," ho
said,-    " It was ha' wish that I should not.
f.They never toll the truth,any way,'she said,,
and,  besides, I would   always   remember -
what  site   had been  and whore  she   was
buried.    I don't need  any   monument of
atone lo remind me  of her, for, you seo, I  ,
live   here with her,  and there  is a moiui-    ,
ment of her memory built iu my thoughts
that reaches to the skies."
Day afler day foryears he has spentin tht
glrjnin of this old .graveyard. Iv'o strife of
the outer woi Id mars his calm and peaceful
existence. His friends liave attempted to

Ill  tlie Flemingioii ' River  Valley,   two  miles from the littie town of P.ingoes, lives  a man by the name of John Stipple, who  has Blept almost continuously the last thirty  years.    ,  ',       The case is a'remarkable one, and it has  puzzled a good'mauy physicians, who have  visited the little farm house in which Stipple does his slumbering from time to time  for   lhe purpose of making a study of his  ca60.    The man is now about 50 years old,  and bill, for the fact that he looks hatrgard  ,     and pale his lace has the same appearance  , that it had tidily   years ago,   when John  was a hearty youth of 20 years,  Stipple's long sleep began'mider peculiar  circumstances.' II, "'was iu llie winter of  ' 1S05. He-had married the daughter of a  farmer who lived in the vicinity of Copper  Hill, and the wedding party, consisting of  a dozen or so young' friends of the couple,  decided to take a sliegh ride on ,lhe Fleni-  oiiucton River, which was frozen over and  supposed to be safe.'' <'  During the trip Stipple's h'oi6e ,stepped  imo an air hole, and in'llouiuiermg around  broke up the ice so that the sleigh contain-  ing the bride and groom went,  ' A '       '  INTO THE WATER.  ,    - i  The young woman vvas siived wilh some  difficulty, and Stipple was at last got out,  but he wa3 unconscious 'and to all  appear*  ,     ances dead. i  He vvas taken to the home,-that he chad*  prepared for  his bride,   and after u couple  of physicians had worked over him several  hours in   the   hope of  restoring   him  they  < declared that he was beyond "human aid',  and in leas than twelve hours he, had ap"  parenlly ceased' to breathe. Stipple'vvas  .supposed,to be dead, and he vvas prepared  _, for burial. The day was fixed for the'  funeral, and the young widow was nearly  crazy.  ', Tho night, before1 the man was to be  buried, Henry Wilcox aud Jason Daltc'n,  two of his friends, wete sitting'up with  the corpse. They had a euchre deck, and  were doing their best to pass' .the time  pleasantly with'the card?. Abouc l'o'clock  in the moruing Wilcx had picked up the  oards to shuttle,'when a voice in the loom  where Stipple's teniains lav shouted  " Whoa, there.'!  That whs fill, but it was enough to bring  Wilcox and Dalton to their feet with their  hair up tu the air and their eyes hanging  out. They, finally biaced up and went  into the roem with the purpose' of finding  out where the voice came from. There  was nobody in sight but Stipple, and tu the  amazement of the two men he had turned  over on his side. He was apparently dead,  '- and,after trying all the ways with which  they were familiar to discover if the maa  breathed, and failing, the watchers  straightened Stipple out on his back,  covered his face again' and left the room to  talk it over. ,No more sounds came from  tho room that night, but in the morning  the supposed corpse was found lying on  his aide again. Tiie story of what" the  watchers had beard and' seen was told,  and Mrs. Stipple refused to ailow her  husband's body to be buried.        '  .voain* 'declared dead.  The physicians tried every meius known  to the profession to restore Stipple to his  not mal condition, hue without avail, and  it last they gave up the undertaking,  declaring again that the man was dead.  This, however, the wife refused io beiieve,  and she could not be induced to consent to  the interment of the body.  Six weeks Stipple lay without manifesting sigi s ot life, aud then one morning,  n-hile in's wife was attending to household  duties in the adjoinit.g room, she beard  lomebody shout, "Whoa, there I" She  turned into the room where ^ler husband  was, and found him sitting up, with his  arms extended,' as if he ' was driving a  hor^e;  Overjoyed at .the sight, Mrs. Stipple  ttirew her a-ms around her husband, and  fell io weeping. Stipple showed no signs  of recognition, but called for something to  sal and drink. His wife brought him some  meat and a glass of milk. He refused to eat  tiie food but drank the milk 'and called  for more. He eagerly swallowed .several  glasses of milk,, and then lying down resinned hia apparently breathless sleep.  It was two months before Stipple was  again heard'from. One day a preacher,  who had a'wUie reputation for'being able  to cure obstinate dise.-.ses through prayer,  came to the Stipple residence at the request  of tlie sleeper's wife, and, kneeling by the  bedside, began to pray..- When he iiad  lunched a -point, in his appeal for the  restoration ol Stipple io health he was  interrupted by the man crying out,"Wnoa,  there !" The preacher stopped praying.  Stipple sit up iu bed as before, and with an  ej.-nies.-ion of great anxiety on his face  appeared to be   o  sTiit'cci.isti with a house.  He soon fell back on-the pillows and feebly  called for food. As before, meat and milk  v. ere brought (ohiui, but be swallowed only  the milk. He drunk nearly a gallon of it  bifore he wai smarted, and then became  unconscious again. 'J'he preacher, at the  earnest request of the man's wife, once more  began to pray,but Stipple showed no further  signs of life.  , For ten years the man remained iu this  condition, awakening at irregular intervals  and always shouting. "Whoa, there I"and  appearing to be engaged in holding a horse.  The excitement of tho uight when he aud  his bride broke through the ice on tho  Fleminglon River seemincly remained with  him. Whenever he awoke he would drink  large quantities of milk, and refused to eat  solid food.  Ono day, about  twenty years ago,  Mrs.  Stipple was  engaged in  sweeping out the  room in which her  husband lay, when he  suddenly  cried   oul,  "Thank God, Susie, j  you was saved 1"  Mrs. Stipple was wild with joy, believing  that the spell upon her husband had at last  been broKon. He appoared to be in full  poisession of his mental faculties and talked  with his wife, about the occurrences of the  eventful night ton years before. What had  taken place ainco then was a blank to him,  and ho talked as if ho had woke from a  night's r.ieop. He nuked if the farm hand  had milked, and how long boturo breakfast  would he r-ady. Fearing thu effect that, the  JtiniH 'eiigo might have on her husband,  >lrs.     *i'..j)ple    did   not    toll     linn    how  'one ago it was that thoBe affairs he  nad been talking about took place. She  told hiiii, that John was then doing the  chores at the barn, and that she wouldhave  breakfast ready in a short time. She sat  on ' the edge of the bed with her arms  arout'd her husband, her heart brimming  over with thankfulness that he had been  restored'to her, with his reason, when his  head suddenly fell forward and he was once  more in a profound slumber.  A UE.VIARKACLE   CHANGE.  At this stage of the peculiar case a remarkable change occurred. The next day  Mrs. Stipple and the farm hand were m  tbe room, talking over the affairs about  the farm.  . " Onin Whiting wants to buy lhe Jersey hsifer for $40," said tlie farm hand.  " What shall I do about it ?" "K  " Sell her," said Stipple, before his wife  could answer. '     '���������  Mrs. Stipple rushed to her husband's  side, thinking that he was about to awake  a^ain, but he appeared to lie deeply asleep,  and all efforts that she made to arouse him  failed.- He'would converse with iier^ however, answer her questious intelligently  and give her advice about the affair's of the  farm^but no eli'ort of hers could make him  open hiaoyes,or trove a limb. ���������  As   before,   at   irregular   intervals   lie  awoke, sal up in bed and  drank milk, but  on- these occasions   he' gave  no  evidence  that he remembered   what had transpired  or what he1 had talked about while asleep.  His opelis of wakefulness never lasted moie  than three-quarters ' of an hour, and there  were frequently ten weeks between them.  The peculiar power of foresight.clairvoy-  ance,or whatever it may be,' has grown upon the man, and he is  now put  to use by  farmers    and   curious   persons   wiio    aro  desiious of knowing what the weather is  going  to be  or-what-the future holds for  them.    There are  hundreds   of men   and  women living  within  a radius of twenty-  five miles of Ringoes whose faith in Stipple's  ability to correctly forecast^cvents is  solid  and firm as the hills.  People come from far  away Lo have the man tell'what is in  store  for them, and   tlie contribution of  money,  from that source-rus enabled  Mrs.   Stipple  t'o surround herself with  al! the  comforts  of living.  It is evident that Stipple knows nothing  of what lie does in tins liue, for wheu he is  awake he,takes up the thread of existence  at'exactly tlie point were he dropped it a  few weeks before. He lias now beec in this  condition thiity years, and whenever lie  becomes conscious he asks it John is doing  the chores and inquires about breakfast.  Hypnotists, electricians, Christian scientists, herbalists, homooopathists and quacks  liave done their best to change tiie condition  under whicli Stipple exists, but'wirhoul'  eliect. His life apparently, stopped'Nvhen  lie wenv through the ice wilh ins bride, and  there is no hope of his ever coming, out of  ll e trance, sleep or whatever it may be till  he dies, and up to date, the chance for his  living our. the full string of years according  to.man is good. , / '     ' ���������<  ALUMINUM IN WAR.  French  MKtcri-  tt Is Vuu1 Proposed in   Inea<.e Hie  ,  Cuirassier-, In Jiii-I.c!*. of Tli a I  nl. ��������� ��������� ���������> '  Somo prominent French military authorities have proposed that aluminum cuirasses  should be constructed for the, cavalrymen,  aud tiiey have given their reason therefor  'n a very cogout fashion.  ' A cuirass of aluniiuuni, it appears, would  be,lighter thau one made of'auy other metal  known, and experiments have proved that  aluminum can resist with e ise sword thrusts  or bayonet lunges. Being so light it would  makeof the cavalryman who wore ita much  more serv iceable and active warrior, and  the lessening of weight would b'e very perceptible as regards tiie horse.  Bullets striking it directly would surely  pierce it, but for that matter a bullet at'  mcasureably 'close range will go throunh  any shield or cuirass that'has yet been  made. It is a well-known military fact  that tlie famoas Lebel rifle sends forth  bullets ihat will go through a brick wall  three feet in thickness. Should, on the  other hand, a ball strick an aluminum cuirass obliquely, it would glance off, leaving  only a dent. This gives it an additional  advantage aa a shielding material overother  metals. ' ���������  The subject of shields aud cuirasses has,  of course, more or less of an affinity with  tli.it of rifle and bullet, and it is important  to note that while a bullet from the Lebel  rille will peuetrate a three-foot brick wall,  it yet 'will pierce lisrdly more than two feet  and a halt through a. bank of soft snow.  This fact, that soil materials are a better  guard than hatd ones, was exemplified in  the late Ch'iiose-Japanese war, many oi the  Japanese soldiers wearing a heavy padding  of floss'silk next their skins under their  uniforms. This inner shield incased of  course only the trunk of tlie body.' 'It i3  said that by its us-e many Japanese lives  were saved from tlie force of spent bulleis.

Areski is dead.    This   most   famous of  modern bandits, the man who  was  known  iu every inch of French Algeria,   aud even  along the boulevards of Paris, as the "Terror   of  the Kabyles,"   and   of' whom   an  Arabic phrase was current, "Tbe   hand of  Areski is sure, his blade is long and keen,  and it always finds the hearts of his enemies," has met his  death on   the   guillotine  within a fortnight, in the Algerian town of  Aza/ga.  The execution was' notable, inasmuch as  all  of tho iwarihy  obiof's 6avage lieutenants were decapitated immediately   before  hull.    Xo less  a personage   than Uiebler,  ,the famous headsman  of France,   touched  tlie   buiton   that   let   down   tho   shining  triangular   biado   upon    these   necks.    A  circle of   Algerian ' horsemen   surrounded  tho guillotine.    Tlie brilliant blue of   their  uniforms   stood out'  vividly   agaiust   the  gleaming white  sands.    Each    bandit was  led   with   measuied   steps    towards    the  "widow,"betweeu two stout guards.habited  in long black frock coats, tombre trousers  and  silk   hats.     At   the   platform   upon  wiiicii eacii victim was iaid  aud whicli 'by  a touch of mechanism   slides 'slowly until  it'comes to a rescunder the  terrible knife  stood Dieblei,  "Monsieur   de Paris,"  perfectly garbed iu his  long, black   coat aud  glossy tile.' '   ' ���������       ,     "  Tne horsemen had gaXthered at midnights  An hour later  THE JIACHIN'K OF  DEATH      '  was put in its place and the white blade  were care ully tried. An hour more aud  the necks'of the condemned men ' were  shaven that tlie knife might not be swerved,  a custom as old-as tbe guillotine. At o,  when no.other tint appealed in tlie sky  save a faint \ i Uovvish glow, the sombre  guardsaud the white-robed,Arab-costumed,  black-bearded, sullen prisoners walked into  tiie circle. Seven minutes from the Hecond  the knife fit st fell and it was all over. Each  bandit died m one and one-sixth'seconds.  Not one weakened. , Tho only complaint  ihey made was that they were not pet nutted  back to Alcena, determined, in accordance  with ancient custom, to'  KILL EVERY  MAS     '   ���������'  who had testified against him and all of  that man's relatives. Hegathered about him  thirty-nine like desperadoes and devil-may-  dares, and established a basis of supplies  in the uplands.  His men he spurred on by the hope of  plunder, for, whenever, an old enemy of  Areski was made to~~bite tbe dust the  deceased's wife and property went to the  band. As the bandit king's murder was  wholesale, the pickings, as they might be  called, were extensive, .ini twelve-,..onth  hekille'd overthreehundred andfitty people.  On one occasion he led his band to a village  wherein lay several of his enemies who  weie " on his little list." He deployed his  men so that'at least one pun was trained  upon eveiy street. The villagers, being  reduced io a state of desuetude, Areski  sedately murdered, 'one by one, the people  ha had in view, burning their houses 'and  destroying their goods.  ���������' He managed to wipo every enemy and  every relative of an enemy off tho face of  the earth, Tne life had fascinated him, aud  he became a bandit merely for plunder and  excitement.'. .No quarter of Algeria save  the French cities was safe. Yet, curiously  enough, his despoiling was confined entirely to natives. He never molested a foreigner. In fact, so far as foreign interests  were concerned, he was an excellent police  official, for there are instances wiien he  saved the lives and property of Frenchman  and Englishmen against attacks and depredations of other savage hands.  A travelling Englishman had been met  on tlie road by brigands, and his watch,  'valuables and bagcage stolen. The French  officials were totally at sea. He wrote to  A-eski. It was curious that while Areski  could never be found by the authorities." a  letter adressed "Areski, Bandit,' Algeria,"  'would always reach him. Iu this case, 'a  week after the letter was sent, a messenger  arrived at the'Englishman's quarters, le;t  some packages and disappeared like a'  ghost. In the packages were found the  traveller's watch, jewelry, being most of his  baggage and the greater part of his  money.

Cine  The Terrible   .Ul-ilaUe Made   In lhe.  ol' uu Iliillan  Vice-Consul,  A correspondent, writing to a Turkish  paper, reports the following tragic affair  from Messina. He says : " Lint week  M. Ovidio Rossi,' Ita-iiau Vice-Consul in  tins town, was takeu ill. A  despatched to Cyprus for a p  when thcdocior roachediMs.ssina M.

Ali-Ouel-  Hadj-Karli, who was entitled lo wear the  turban conferred upon those who had  kissed Mahomet's l.omb,, followed him.  The next to die was Mohammed-Uuiddir, a  giant, who laid himseif upon the sliding  platform without a tremor.' The parricide,  Amokrati, followed, and succeeding him  was Abdoun, who, as he uiti-cred to where  the kuue was raised high ui air, sang in  French, iu . a cheery tone and with a loud  voice,' to the stirring melody of an old  caravan Bong, "Xous sommes tousmortels"  i (We are all mortal),  j , Last of all, Areski, the master, whose  i hands were stained with the Hood of  ; hundreds, was led forward, and a tremor  ran throush the immense crowd of natives  behind the impassive cavalry men' l when  they saw that tiie oh eftain was dying like  a savage. It was all his guards could (io  to hoiu him iu leash. He kicked ind spit  and bit, and swerved his lithe, long body  in a vain attempt not to get away, for that  was impossible, hut to delay the moment  when that fatal, blood-stained "Widow's  kiss" should be his.  But Dietler was not to be del iyed. Xot  for iiii iu3taut did Ateski's struggle arrest  the clockwork action. All he had time  for as he was hurr.ed aero s the gleaming  wliile sand was io shout these sentences  from tlie Korau : " Hut the infidels  will not cease , to doubt concerning  it until the hour of judgment cometh  suddenly upon them." "Say I liy for  r.;fut!e unto tne Lord of the daybreak, that  i He may deliver me from tne mischief of  I tlie night when it cometh on."

Of the forty  declared, after eYaiiiinaiion,   that life w.is  extinct and deliveied the necessary certificate for tlio burial of the body.    .Vow, the  Vice-Consul Iial expressed a desire that iu  case   he sliould   die,    certain   articles   of  joweiry for whicli   ho   had  a great  fancy,  should be placed   in li ta collin   and buried  with liim.    Hie relatives scrupulously carried out his  wish ; but  ns   it wis   feared  that the valuables might tempt robbers,  it  was decided to keep a watch ou thc grave.  "In the night the watchmen hoard  cries  issuing  from the  grave  and, seized   with  alarm, ran away.    They hurried to the  residence of tho family and informed them of  what had happened, whereupon the   relatives  of tho deceased   with several   other  persons   immediately   proceeded   to     the  cemetery and caused the grave to be opened.  Wheu the bier was taken out and the  lid  removed, it was found that  the position of  the  body  was changed, and that   it   was  turned with the face toward the bottom of  tho   collju.    On   closer    examination   the  terrible truth became more evident, namely  that Areski headed, twenty-four were kill-  1 ed in the woodland conflicts. The o-.heis  were carried before llie Algerian Court of  Assize to be condemned. Four only were  pardoned.  The Faculty of Medicine of Algeria  claimed the bodies and permission was  granted. But the Kabyle women had  taken possession of them, had carried them  under a great tree and were sewing on tbe  heads to the truofia. The doctors started  back at this spectacle, and wondered what  it meant, these savage mountain women,  two each kneeling at the aide of a corpse  and performing this ghastly task. Then  the doctors recalled an old Mahometan  tradition that Azrael, the Angel of Death,  carries on the dead to Paradise by the hair  of their heads, grasping that long tuft of  hair that every true Mussulman lets grow  on the summit of his cranium, and which  he calls the "Mahomet."

Mrs.   Gordon  resides in  A I'iK,KTTV   HOUSE  in   the   Brixton   road,   where she    keeps  lodgers    According to tier story one of her  lodgers prevailed upon her to visit   a. house  in Clapham park, on the pretence of showing her a billiard-table he was thinking of  buying.    She says she carried   in   a secret  pocket ten Canadian Pacific railroad shares  of    the   value  of  about  ������1,'J00,   ������800    in  German Bank notes, ������900 in Jiauk of England notes,  aud a considerable quantity of  jewelry;.  ��������� As soou_as she entered tlie house  the doors were fasteued and she was seized  by v, man, either a Russian or Turkish Jew,  wnose  name   is   known   to  Mrs.   Gordon.

Statistics   showing thoolfeot   of thi  use  of   diphtheria  antitoxine   in tho   Gorman  cities  of   Hallo and Altona were recently  published,   says   the   New   Vork  Timra.  Be.ween  Nov.   11,   l$'.H,   and   Jan.   l.j of  this year, 114 cases were  subjected to tho  serum treatment in Halle, and the reports  come from   thirty physicians.   There were  only nine  deaths,   or  a_mbrtaiity of less  than   8  per  cent.    Of "eighty-nine   cases  treated in private  houses, six had a fatal  termination, and there   wore three deaths  out  of  the  remaining   twenty-five  cases,  which   were   treated    iu   hospitals.    In a  hospital at Altona antitoxine was used in  sixty-three cases   between   Sept.   1,   1894,  and March 1,  1895.     Eight ot the patients  died, so that the mortality was 12.09 per  cent.    In   thirty-one   of   the   sixty-three  cases tracheotomy was required, but only  thiee of these patients, or less than 10 per  cent, suocumbed lb   thc disease.     This is  regarded  as   a   remarkable   record   for   ?.  series of cases of  this kind.    The  annual  mortality from diphthcria.ni   this .hospital  during   tlie   preceding   seven    years   had  ranged from 20.123 to ;?7.27 per cent.  During the last half dozen years Great  Britain has been quietly taking possession  of group after group of islands iu the South  Pacific with the intention ot utilizim- the  most suitable bits of land-' for telegraph  stations on the great transoceanic route.  The gobbling process has been carried on  unobtrusively, but systematically. Proteo-  toraies were established wherever it was  not practicable to a->iiime ownership. In  18SS the British (lag was raised on Kingman,  Palmyra, Washington, Fttiiuiii<_',t,iiristi'iias1  Dudoea, Reirson, and Penrhyn Islands. In  the same year , her Majesty, tlie t.iueeii,  took under her protection Ellice Island aud  the Phoenix, Union and Gilbert groups.  She already had a protectorate over the Fiji  Islands. In 1SS9 she took Suwarotl Island,  and in lS91'Johusion l->land, which isaboui  ���������lOO miles west- oi tiie south end of tho  Hawaiian archipelago. In 1S02 Gardiner  and Danger Islands were appropriated. All  of these islands and groups li'ive been exam*  ned with a view to determining their availability for the purpose mentioned.  .1 'i '  ,    ENORMOUS M-iTANCES.  The distances to be traversed by th  proposed cable are enormous, As tlie crow  flies,,it is 38G0 miles from Victoria to Fanning Islandl From Fanning Island to  Fiji it is 1967 miies, and' from r.he latter  point to Auckland is ISIS miles. From  Auckland to Sydney,in New .South Wales,  cable Ib already laid.' This is the route  contemplated, the total distance le be  covered being about 7'2.)0 3tu tule ^miles.  .Careful estimates show that tlie cost ot  laying a transpacific cabie would be just  about $1000 per mile,including everything.  This would brin? the total expense of putting down the lin a from Victoria to Auckland, exclusive of preliminary surveys, up  to S7,200,000. The cost is ��������� somewhat  increased by tiie fact that tlie cable itself  has to1 be carried ail, tho way from England.  No submarine cabies are manufactured ou  tins continent. Most of those now employed were made iu' England, where the  business was originally initiated. Four  firms in that countiy devot ��������� their atteution  exclusively to ' this industry. There are  two similar concerns in France and one in  Italy.  ���������' , ���������     '  Victoria; whicli is at tlie south end of  Vancouver Island, is already connected by  cable with Vancouver town, across the  straits on the mainland. Vancouver town  is the terminus gf the .Canadian Pacific  Railroad. Thus the proposed line will  convey messages direct- from Europe to  Australia, and the London merchant will  be able lo send telegrams beneath two  oceans to Sydney. .From Sydney the same  telegrams could be forwarded back to  London by way of India and the continent  of Europe. Thus it will be practicable  actually,when this project is accomplished,  to transmit an electric spark entirely  around the world. Ry throwing opeu all  circuits along the wires, the spatk eould'be  made lo girdle the earth completely in a  fraction of a second, Already there is  continuous telegraphiccommunioation overland and uuder seas all the way, from  Victoria, B.C., to Auckland. The connection of Auckland with Victoria will make  the circuit of the globe complete.  Tne portion of the route which lies between Victoria and Fanning Island is supposed' to be particularly suitable for the  laying of a cable. It is probable, therefore, a fine oo?e composed chiefly of mud  and of tiie shells of almost microscopic  animals called foiamuiifera. Iu depths  not greatly exceeding a mile tbe characteristic shells aie apt to be those of small  moihisks known lo llie naturalist as  pieropods. The pieropods and foraminitera  live iu-ar tl-.e sutface of the ocean, and the  ooze is formed by' the continual rain of  their shells which falls far above.  , l'KOTBdTlXU   OOZK.  This ooze, urayisli and sometimes greenish in color, which covers vast areas of the  ocean floor, has more than one. advantage  for the pui pose of cable laying, li is so  noft that ' He eaule sinks into it and is  buried beyond reach of influences which  might be dele erioim,��������� Hottom of thid sort  does not correspond to any ordinary conception of tlie luiuisin-in." 'J'he material of  il on top is so finely divided, some ot it  be-ng actually held in -iMpensiou and mure  or les.sdis.solvoil, that itis hard to say where  the water ends and solidity begins. The  very existence of those coiuIiik/us implies  thai there are no currents, such iih are  found in sonic places or. tlie floor of tho  sen. Under these oico'iuiManco.s the cable  sudors from no wear and lour j furthermore, in regions coverej by tne oo/.e there  are no chemical agents to make trouble.  An ocoau    cable   has   enemies   animal,  vegetable  and milium 1.    In   Hlical waters  and I'oiiielinics in great. d-*pih������, wnete ihe  presence of volcanic, nodules in llie bottom  material botrays ievent  subierratio.tii dm*  lurbiincei, sulphuric   and   oilier chemical  compounds attack    lhe   lelcgtaphic   rope.  Tiie line between   Havana and  Key  West  has been i cue wed by  the  Western Union  Company six timos within tlie iasi twenty  years    on   account   of   such    dcatructive  agencies.    Off the coast of Cuba,   in very  deep water, are wells of pitch.    This substance neciiis to ooze out through the crust  of the earth from deposits beneath  the sea  bottom wliich correspond in   character  to  the lakes nf pitch   that are   found on the  Island  of  Trinidad  and   elsewhere.    Tlie  vegetable enemies  ot   tho   cable  are fei-  weeds, wliich  contain  iodine.    Thc latter  substance, which eats iron, ia found in the  shallow coastal waters whoro these plants  I grow.    Sharka sometimes bile cables, and  awordfishes   have   been  known   to injure  them,   Di ere is a case on record of a whale  that became entangled in a , bight of cable  which   hung Iiko   a   festoon  between two  elevations on the sea  bottom.    Thu result  was a  break, and  experts  sent nut on   a  ship to mend it hauled the great animal to  tho surfaco,  quite dead   of course.    Such  accidents are avoided'when all parts of the j  cable lio  in actual contact   with the ocean  floor.    Furthermore, wlion tlie telegraphic  rope is suspended across amibmarineo'n.ism  or valley it sways to and fro, and is apt to  sn w itsulf in two ou (-.sharp rock.   Rcc-nily  t has been ascertained ihat,   iiy establish  ing a due relation between the ������te-.ru..;.>  speed and tbe strain on the cable a ie- .-i  may down such a line so that it will follow  evenly every curve and contour of the  bottom. '  OTHER    ANIMAL FOK3.  ' Other animal foes of the  cable  are mol-  lusks���������notably the well-known  teredo,  or  "shipworm."    It  eats the hempen coverings of telegraphic  ropes.    In ns destructive work it is aoaisted by'a' verv   minute  crustacean   called   the  " limi,ori?.''   This  latter creature has powerful jawe. and uses'  them for boring  innumerable holes in   the  gutta percha. coat of the cable.    The  best  kind of submarine cable  weigh a little over  a ton to the mile and costs  $750 per mile,  It is ab'iut an inch   in diameter, the center  core being a bundle of twisted copper wire's  one-eighth of an inch through. Around this  is  gutta percha, outside of which hemp ia  wound.    Finally, the exquisitely  wroughy  rope is enveloped in Bteei wire.    It   is   so  stiong that a break ia   a    rare  occurrence  In     the    depths    of   the, ocean    it ' will  lie  for    centuries   without   suffering   ant'  mjuiy. ,  Hy, observation of  the  resistance  to the electric current tlie telegraph opera-  lor on land can lor.uo a  fault in a'cible as  far out an 2000 miles and wilhin 000 yardii,  so'that a ship can go  straight to   tho spot  iindrake-iup  the   broken.or   injured  wire  from   the bottom. <���������  Tins   work   in   great  depths is facilitated by an ingenious grap.  pie, which' will not  hold anything smaller  end will not catch laiger than the cable.  When the earliestoaliles werolaid regard  was had only-for the contour of the bottom  bv'or which ihe telegraphic rope was to pasv  Rut nowadays many other things are considered in deciding upon' a loute., First  and foremost i'h tiie nature of the lioltoui.  Lauding places are cho-sen at, points from  whicli the insulated wito may run as quickly as possible into deep water, so as to  avoid tlie destructive iodine of the 'shallows. In tlie latter also arc accumulations  of decaying animal'and vegetable matter  which produce liijuriousacids. As lias been  said'alieady, the conditions for cable laying  are admirable in all,probability throughout  the entire distance of 3SC0 miles from Victoria to Fanning Island. Such obstacles'  as drowned mountains, which occur in all  oceans, are easily avoided. One such was  discovered recently incidentally to the exploration of the Submarine lane from California to the Hawaiian Islands,, 750 miles  io the westward of Monterey Ray. Though  it is a mighty volcanic peak two and half  miles high, its'existence had not been suspected previously, because a half ini^e of  water Hows above it,"    ,  I-ANN'r.VO ISLAND TO A1CKI.AKD.  .Less is known of tbe paving and contour  of the ocean floor for   the rest  of   the pio-  posed route,,from Fanning Island lo Auok-  land, which is a distance   about   equal'  to  that from New York lo Liverpool���������namely,  X')1j statute miles, as the crow lies.    Tho  not ma! level of the bottom of the Pacific is  a little less than throe miles,' though there  are   deeper   area's   and   here   and tliere a  yawning   chasm,   as off   the east   coast of   ,  Japan where a submarine valleyocours six  and a half miles in breadth.    To the southward, however,   over the   greater   part of  watery   region- extending   from   Fanning  Island to Auckland the ocean is  somewhat  shallow, though   occasionally   depths   exceeding   three - miles   occur   between  the  nuraeroui groups of islands.    These groups  nia-k gieat shoals,   which   probably aro of  volcanic   origin,   the-  islands   themselves    f  being prominences high   enough to appear,  above tlie surface.      Coral   polyps,   -which  can live only   in   shallows, .have   utilized  every available shoal place for their bui'ding  operations,    uplifting   out  of the sea reefso  which, in many cases, have   formed islands   ��������� '  of considerable area.     Such islands arc apt  to be of an oval or approximately   circular  shape, a ring of   reef ��������� inclosing   a   sort of  harbor. L     > .  Islands of this kind are called "atolls."  Their harbors, frequently alloni refuge ,to  manners voyaging in the South Seas. One  of these is big enough to accommodate all  tlie navies of the world. Disintegration of  the surface coral by the elements makes  the beginning1* of a soil. Tho seeds are  brought by birds and by ocean currents,  and presently the rudiments of .vegetation  uppear. Eventually perhaps a few natives  from other islands settle upon--the new  atoll aud eke out. a scanty, subsistence by  fishing and by cultivating the taro and  lew other plants. The soil is capaple c  yielding so little naturally, that it is helpei.  out by digging holes in the coral and  throwing into them everything in the way  of animal and vegetable lefuse that can be  gathered together. This stuff, mixed with  disintegrated coral, furnishes material for,  primitive garden patches. ���������  A COOOANUT   ISLAND.  Fanning Island  is such amaloll.
