The writer of this article was a resident, of Revelstoke five and one-half  years ago. At that time he began the  publication, of the " Kootenay Star,"  die first newspaper printed' in West  Kootenay, and ran it for a, year' and  eight} mouths. During all that time,  he-believes, he never had an enemy  caused by anything that was _ printed  in the paper. It was his invariable  pin-pose never <;o, write anything that  would hurt, the1 feelings'of another;  but to say that which was good and  friendly ; to omit all references to unpleasant matters ; to, heal up old sores  nnd grievances rather than to probe  them deeper : and this was done not  as a matter of policy, but as 'one of  picference and principle. And during  his nearly two years of editing the Inland Sentinel, the sanrfe line of conduct was.pursued. He, never found it'  in his heart or thoughts to write a disagreeable thing about man, woman or  child,1-but always to say the good and  friendly word. And hi editing ,tlie  Kootenay oMail (it this time, it is his  fiiiniintentiori to pursue the s.une line  of independent friendliness to all par-  tieS and interests. ���������  TJil*  BEST AND CHEAPESTROUTE  TO   .'-Nil   FI-OM  Ail Eastern Feints/  Thrnn<rh l-'ir.f C'liiv^.-lctijiinL; ("art;and T<;-.iri--(  ?lc<.-ri:i-.r Car.'-' to Si. l'mil, .iioiiti-c.ti.ind Toronto  witlji.-iii i Lam;".

Our finn belief in tho great future  of llevelstolre has ne.\er "faltered,,and  it is well expressed in tlie following  paragraph copied into ,the Kootenay  Star.in August, 1S0O,'from the Vancouver World : ..   ,    ,  . "Of all places in the interior likely  lo attain anv importance,. Revelstoke  unquestionably looms up head and  shoulders' over all other localities as a  point where an important centre is  certain to'arise. Situated as it is on  the main line of the Canadian Pacific  Railway and on the banks of the Co-  lunibia'rivor, which is navigable for  some distance above-the town in the  "direction' of Big Bend���������whot,o mines  for over a quarter of a century have  continued to yield the precious met.-il."*  in considerable quantities.���������and southward through the Upper and Lower  Arrow Lakes, towards the boundary,  becoming at once the entry or outlet  for'the resources of the famous Kootenay country, which is acknowledged ta  be one of the richest mineral districts  in tbe world, and the .Columbia riv.t-r  is conceded to be one. of the most important natural highways on Lhe continent. Tbe trade of this district, is  tributary to Revelstoke, which is destined to become agreat railway centre  as well as a shipping point."  Tn the former years while editing  the Star, it was our constant endeavor  to lessen tbe disposition to rivalry then  springing up, between the upper and  lower sections of the town, so far as  they were prompted by acrimonious  feeling, because it was then and is now  our firm belief that should Revelstoke-  be the large, populous, prosperous city  which , its location entitles it to be, it  will cover the entire stretch of land  suitable for residences and surrounding  grounds, business houses and manufacturing sites, between the Big Eddy  and the Tllecillewaet. Why not then  act together in a common and harmonious purpose, tto make Revelstoke what  its location on the C.P.R., at thc practical head of navigation on the Columbia and surroundings of mineral wealth  in all directions, entitle it to become,  rather than the insignificant town to  which internal ami implacable dissension will certainly degrade it.  Jamks W. Vail.  Big Bend News Budget.  ' John, L. JS'eilson got in from Big  Hend yesterday with the mail. He  had a fine trip. Charlie Norleins has  begun sluicing.' The, clean-up of the  last week on the Consolation was  about, fe.'K)0. Andy L'arks had been  working ahout a week at, Smith Creek,  and h.id got down 20 feet in the shaft.  Harry ilawos, foreman on (.he claim  next below Norlcins on Cold Stream,  is doing a large amount of work on a  big flume, about OOO feet, long, which  he expects to have ready befme high  water.  The Lil tie Falls claim, Frank Hilton, niaii.'L,er, h.is begun a new shaft  on the lower ond. They found so much  water in tho old shaft, that they were  obliged to make the change. The  pump which "had been in the old shaft  six years at lea"-.!, was nearly as good  us new when taken out. A lliiuie -1'I0  fcov long is ready to run tho wheel.  What Shall be Done for Big Bend?  Almost within the recollection of the  youngest inhabitant of Revelstoke,  there were not more than three or four  persons in the Big Bend country at  this time of year, and some of those  *who had remained there through the  winter were how coming out for provisions, and to rest for a few weeks,  before starting another season's work.'  Mails did not go up more than once  during the winter ; now they go up  monthly, a regularigoverumentservice.  Johnny" Neilson, who perforins this  service by dog train, receives a monthly stipend from about 50 miners, who'  mostly live in the Bend, in addition to  payments from the government.  The,,, strong contrast'between that  former period and tbe present time has  been seen every week this winter by  the arrival and departure of' parties to  and from Big Bend, and this week' the  movement of men. up the river has  been particularly marked.  On Monday nioruiriK, a party of five  composed of Thomas liennessyj Daniel  Mc Donald, Robert Caley, John Caley  and George Johnson left 'with .their  sleds',' snowshoes and mining outfits for  French Creek,; and on Tuesday morning Angus Beaton, Prank Vandall,'  Pete Lovesque and Charles Bostrom  started for the same destination;  Murdoch McRae for Downie Creek;  where, his brother-in-law, Tom Bain,  has a r ranch; George Terry berry and  Bob, Clifford went out at the same  time to the Games', Creek placer  grounds.  .It is. becoming an iinporlant question, in view of the increased progress  and prosperity of tlie Big Bend mines,  how tbe means of reaching the district  shall be improved. When it i.s considered that the mines on Gold Streat]}  are about 75 miles from Revelstoke,  and that even in summer it must be  reached over a trail by pack train or  on foot; and that.in winter snowshoe,  dog train or sleds drawn by hand have  to he employed, it is seen that there  are inducements sufficient to .prompt  men to overcome extraordinary difficulties and to,endure great'hardships.  We have not space to pursue this'  subject this'week but shall take an  early opportunity to discuss some  measure of relief. <  A Bridge Needed Across Gold Stream.  The Gold Stream ferry at the mouth  of McCulloch creek has been kept up  for tbe iast six years by George La-  forme without government aid. He  built the scow originally, and once re:  built it, but it now'needs .renewing  again, mill a new outfit, of, ropes provided. Now that there are other pack  trains than Ids own using the trail, and  a large incveasexif peoplein the district,''  requiring for their use the transportation of supplies and. mining material  and the conveniences for crossing Gold  Stream, he does not feel that herein  continue the maintenance of a public  ferry. , It is ,not only the expense of  furnisliing the ferry, but a man has to  be kept within Jieariug to 'answer-the  call of those wanting to use it. Tbe  attention of the Government has been  called to this matter, and it is hoped  that a bridge will soon be 'built across  Gold Stream.  The Inspection of Fruit Pests.  i  t     i  The Provincial Boardof Horticulture  has lirul a member of its board among  us this week in the person of Thomas  G. Earl, who represents the fifth district, comprisingjCarihoo, Lilloett, Yale'  and East and West Kootenay. rThe  quarantine regulations published in the  Ciasclte, March 7, require the appointment of a local fruit inspector at  Golden, and Mr. Earl went up the line  on Monday to attend to this duty. He  selected Mr. F.: C. Lang as the local  fruit inspector at that place.  . It is quite necessary for all persons  dealing in any manner with nursery  stock for sale or distribution, to have a  clear certificate that they are free from  fruit pests, otherwise they are liable to  a fine of $50 for each'offence. ' ,  Mr. Earl stopped off at Revelstoke  Wednesday evening, spending a day to  look into the nursery trade and perhaps find out if anyone here was engaged in it who had failed to comply with  the law and regulations of the Horticultural Board.      , ������������������ ���������  It seems strange that so large and  importantadistrictas West Kootenay,,  which is open to the importation of  fruit trees over two steamer routes and  one. railway line, should have no local  fiuit inspector to guard it from fruit  pests. Any one importing fruit trees  at Trail or Nelson, will have to send  them for inspection either-to Golden or  Vernon paying freights there and back,  about SU0 miles, to get a clean certificate. Local fruit inspecting officers  are appointed for Osoyoos and Kettle  River, and yet neither of (liese places  has any communication across the  boundary except by wagon road.

The new boat which Tom Horne,  with the assistance of Raymond Allan,__  h.is been building.this winter, called the'  "Big Bend,"-is ready, for launching.  The calking was going on. last week  and other finishing touches have been  all put ou.' It is a splendid craft and is  intended principally for the up-river or  Big Bend'trade. The boat is 11 feet  long, S^ feet beam and 8.j feet depth of  hold. It is of very, light draft, and is  longer'that the steamer Arrow. It will  carry about-ten tons, rtud will lake,  seven or eight, men tohaijallcher in the  currents of tlie river. Should tho trade  of the Big Bend be suiiicient. to pay,  steamer machinery could he put into  her with very little trouble-  Death of Mrs. George Laforme.  It is very sad to be obliged to record  the death 'of Mrs. George Laforme,  which occurred on Thursday morning  at 5 o'clock, after a brief .illness of 'live  days. The funeral took place cm -Friday at 2 o'clock, and the very, large assembly of 'people who attended, giving  the. last evidence of regard they were  able to manifest towarils the deceased,  testified to the high esteem in which  she was held by the entire community.  Mrs. Laforme was the daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. John Stone, sister to Mrs. 0.  Abrahamson and Albert. Stone and was  a dear and much cherished member of  the circle. Thu bereaved husband and  mourning friends have the deep sympathy of all.  Rev*. Mr. Proeuuier officiated at tho  burial services, and a quartette composed of Messrs.-Ahlin and Barber, and  Misses.

The scientific farmer unless' he has plenty  of money and help is apt to overrun. He  pushes science a little beyond its limits in  too short a time, thinking work but a cipher  and pleasure out of the question.  The pleasure farmer is generally en rouie  ' from the city, thinking farming is but fun.  He has made a mistake.    He knows nothing of the science and work the  farm must  have to train success.  The' drudeery /-inner toils 'from early  morn until late night, invariably growling.  ' E>, too, has made a mistake. Let two-  thirds of drudgery step out and supplement  with science and pleasure, then instead of  dissatisfaction farming will become a pleasure. '      , .'",f  A successful,farmer must be a'reader ol  tho daily, local and weekly agricultural  papers ; he must attend meetings ouch as  the grange, farmer's club and institute,  and he must keep pos'ed on whichever  branch he is working. He must, love'the  great and wonderful works,of nature. He  should plan his work ahead, not forgetting  to .plan for emergencies. ���������,He, should use  , science in'so much that formerly what he  had grown on two acres might be grown  on one. He should study the wants of his  land and by supplying chemicals make the  worn out ready for use again. He should  study the habits aud wants of each of his  animals, weeding out such as he receives  little'or nothing from.

Of course evergreens are the favorite  trees for hedges and groups, and they are  excellent in this regard, yet if a quick  growth is desired they will not do as well  for high top protection as maples or some  ' other= rapid growing trees. .'if s hodae is  desired in a short time, it would he advis-  able to plant rapid growing shade trees  thickly aud bolder them with evergrecnajif  this is properly done >n excellent protection  is afforded.

Timid people who shudder at the ills  which may lurk iu lobsters, mushrooms,  candy and in restaurant cooking; will be  ,glad to learn that a Scotch physician,'Dr.  MaoLewaii, has invented a process which  will enable them to live upon nutritive air,  and thus defy adulterated foods and their  concomitants, indigestion  aud   dyspepsia.  Dr. MacLcwan asserts that he has discovered a methord of reducing sustenance  to its simplest expression, a nutritive  vapor, (which he extracts from solid foods  by- means of an ingenious apparatus of  which he is inventor., Thanks to Uub, a  repast may soon become nothing more than  a series of savory inhalations.-' .

J ���������,  " Wooden bread," the second of these  new dietetic inventions, seems unreason-  able and not to be thought- of, but in Berlin there is a factory which produces at  present about 2,010 pounds of it, per day.  It is made hy allowing sawdust to ferment,  attor which it undergoes numerous chemical manipulations. Jt is then mixed wirh  one-third of its bulk of rye flour and baked  hke ordinary bread. Just uow only horses  are nourished by this product, and the  street-car companies of. Berlin, who are  the largest consumers, are enchanted with  its cllecie. The horses, though, have not  yet expressed their opinion, nevertheless  they seem"to thrive on it.  Thi manufacturers declare thut this  wooden bread would make an equally  satisfactory food for man^'whose stomach,  it is claimed, is quite ns capable of digest-  ine it as is the stomach o; the horse.

Sombre, silent and swift is the army of  Japan���������one of the most formidable engines  of war which the world knows. It is not  easy to exaggerate the splendid qualities of  the soldiers of the Land of the Rising Sun.  They are strong, brave and obedient.  They march with a celerity that European  troops cannot excel. They are mouse-like  in peace, polite, suave, tip-toeiug, smiling,  caressing to their'friends ; in war they  move like a charging tiger. The advance  army corps is a flying column.  1 am strongly pro-Japanese. I am sorry  Port'Arthur occurred to dim the lustre of  the great humane, campaigns. There is  some extenuation for that. The decapitated nnd mutilated Japanese hung to the  trees���������but don't let us talk about that.  The subject is worn threadbare by the  newspapers. The Japs killed the Chinamen  for three or four days after taking Port  Arthur. ' I saw it; 1 know it; 1 have told  it, and that is all there is pf that. The Jap  is a bit of a savage. Look at his wide and  high cheek bones, souvenirs of his cruel  Tartar ancestry. The Japanese are cruel.  Scratch the lacquer of their newly-acquired  Western civilization and you have a Tartar  in verity. JIany of their sports involve  the torture of animals. 'I?hey witness suffer-,  ing and death with JifctJe emotion. ��������� They  apply their stoic philosophy to themselves  aud;they meet wounds aud the most agouiz-  iug death witn calmness.  W.hat is the Japanese army 7 How, is it  organized? It is contructed on the German model with modifications. There is a(  term of compulsory duty for every young  man. That is, the regular army. At the  end , of    his term   as a .regular, the man  passes into the reserve, from which he may  be called into service for war. Thereafter  he remains for the rest of his life in a sort  of "sub-reierve, to be" summoned only in  times of national peril.     , ',  ������    i   MOKK SOLDIERS  ANXIOUS TO llflllT.  As yet, but little more than half of tho  regular army has been put into the field,  and those left at "home are boiling with  impatience to bo at the front. ..The patriotism and warlike spirit of the Japanese is  not excelled by the people of any Western  land, and is in striking contrast to the  mercenary and cowardly character of the  Chinese.' The army is divided into corps  in divisions known as garrisons. Of these,  two have beeu already drawn upon���������the  Satsuma and Sendai garrisons. The former  is from the south and the latter from' islands  of the group north of Nippon, the main  island on which are Tokio and Yokohama.  The Sendai men are dare-devils, equal to  any desperate performance. They distinguished themselves during the revolution  of a few years ago, and have just won fresh  laurels at Wei-Hai-Wei.  "The uniform of the Japanese is strictly  European. They wear a fatigue,blouse,  about tho waist of which is strapped  the bayonet and cartridge belt. The  bayonet hangs' at the left and the cartridge pouch at. the, back, just as with  our troops. Some of thc engineers carry  their cartridges on their breast, after the  Cossack fashion. I think this system will  be universally adopted, as it facilitates  speed in loading. The trousers are straight,  reaching to the foot and bound about the  ai.kle and calf with a canvas legging. The  color of both coat and trouers is dark  bottle green, almost black, like the uniform  of Italian soldiers.

The youngest surviving child of the much  lamented Princess Alice of England, she  lost her mother when only six years old.  From the date of that sad event the motherless children of the Hessian family became  the special charge of their grandmother,  ��������� her Majesty, our Queen, who has always  shown a very particular interest in their  welfare, so that their education has been  as much English as German.  Until the death of their grand-uncle, the  old Grand Duke of Hesse, the household  of their father was'maintained on the moBt  modest scale, with no greater luxury than  could be obtained ��������� in England with an income of some ������3,000 a year. Visits to  England were included among tho special  pleasures in the lives of the, young Princesses���������with the general result that the  now Empress has even stronger associations  with England than with Germany, and  with the incidental result that English is  her common language with the Czar, her  husband. '<  Finally, as regards the German origin of  the Empress, it should be noted that the  Hessian Grand Ducal family suffered much  from the results of the war of 1SGG, when  the Hessians sided with Austria against  Prussia, and that for. :nanyr,yeare oil the  Hessian people entertained very bitter  feelings against Prussia.

Dickens, wiio so often studied with de  lighted interest the applications of Eng  lish law to particular eases, would h>.vc  found a subject,worthy of his grimmest  humor in the fact, that when the master  of a fishing smack, cruising near where the  Elbe went down,'saw floating in the water  a dead body, which was'doubtless that ofa  victim of the great disaster, he made no  effort to rescue it from the waves and carry  it ashore for identification and burial. In  stead, he sailed past and away from the  doleful bit of flotsam as quickly as circumstances would permit, not, as one might  suppose because he was a particularly  hard-hearted and cold-blooded manner, but  because, " recently, after landing* body,  he had heen forced to pay the funeral expenses." Curious as that experience had  been, and delightfully illustrative as it was  of " crownere quest" wisdom, the captain  had no inclination to repeat it. One lesson  had been enough to teach him the great  principle that common seuse cannot be  allowed to interfere with consistency in the  enforcement of a Parliamentary Act, and  what iu comparision with that, is the continued agonized uncertainty of some Ger-  man wife or mother ?  ��������� Modern Fire-Eaters. ,  The fire-eating feats of two young men,  giving performances at the Olympia, in  Paris are attracting much attention. They  emit from their mouths and from their  fingers ends long,brilliaut streaks of flame.  When they shake hands as they enter a  crackling noise ia heard and long flames  shoot from their hands, which they vigorously shake for several seconds. One of  them projects a flame from his mouth,  holding out, haif a minute.' No odor is  perceptible while the performance lasts.  It is prohab'e lhat tho combustion i.s due  to very volatile essences, but the fire-eatirs  won't say what il is and guard their secrets  carefully. To heighten the weird effect  the hall is darkened just before their  appearance, and they are dressed inured  Mephisto costumes, symbolic of the "fiery  devils."  The Worms Turn.

When it is desired to give the  cushion height, square corners may be  secured by turning in the corners, after the  cushion is filled, and sewing together the  two vertical .edges ,thus formed; the,  amount turned in decides the heigiith or  thickness of the cushion. This is much  simpler, than the sewing of a btrip between  the, top and bottom of tiie cushiou. In  covering, the same plan may be'pursued,  except that the material for the top should  be cut large enough to cover the aides aud  front, turning over the lower edge where  it may be faced with anything convenient.  If preferred, the cushion proper may be  made in the way described, and the cover  made with a strip of the same or a contrasting material sewed between top and  bottom to form the sides.  Floor finish.  Perhaps you have decided to discard an  old carpet and use rugs on the floor 'accord-  jug to the healthy fashion now so much  favored. If the boards are tolerably well  matched tho cracks can'be filled liefore it  is stained. Make some thin boiled pusto ;  thicken it with newspapers pulled into bits,  and harden it with two .teaspoonfuls of  alum to thc quart. Fill the cracks with  the help of a case knife. Now stain the  floor with that already prepared, found at  any shop where paints arc sold. Avoid  the black walnut stain, which is so dark ��������� as  to show dust. Light cherry slain is prc-  fcrahle.-tho'.igh some,like'the oak. ���������They  are both easily mixed at homo by taking a  gallon of boiled oil, two-thirds of a cupful  of "dryer," a little more than that of turpentine, and,tinting with burnt sienna or  raw umber. , The former gives tho cherry,  tho latter thc oak.  A Good.Recipe.  A clever woman who, while the mother  of six bright youngsters, is still fresh and  fair, although obligeil'to do a great deal of  planning to make things in her houscnold  como out even, .was asked recently what  she did to' keep herself looking so young.  "Ton hours' sleep/',funny papers, good  novels, and the society of bright people, is  my medicine" ahe said in reply. "Then I  eat no highly-reasoned dishes, very little  meat, plenty of vegetables, fruit and coffee.  1 use water copiously, outside and in, and I  am a happy woman. My souse'of the  ridiculous is my only tonic." Itt sounds  Bimplo enough, certainly.  H  f OE TOE MURDER,  THE CHAPiGE  ON WHICH   ARTHJ/i  DICKS IS' ARRESTED.  ' -    To Tell a Fresh Fish.

'  The recentarrangement of the represents,  tives of Hothschiids for the protection of  , the credit of'the United States is not tho  first time that tliey have come tothe rescue  of governments in financial embarrassment-  They are now the most powerful bankers  in the world, and the ditferent branches of  the family in the various capitals of Europe  oordially support each other without being  1 bound in an absolute partnership. , They  ' have seen their greatest competitors in  England go to the wall���������Overend, Guruey  fe Co., in the panic of 1S66, and the Bar-  ngs in 1S90. So rapid hag been the extension of their financial power that one of  'their enemies has written a book under the  title "The Rothschilds, The' Financial  Rulers of Nations," in which he seeks ti"  show that they have their emissaries ia  3very cabinet, and have been able to manipulate the stock market for tho extinetioo  of their rivals.  One of4 the early achievements of a mem-  oer of the house,Nathan Mayer Rothschild,  was a hasty trip from tho field of Waterloo  to Loudon, whero he arrived before news  of the battle had reached the Government  or the bankers. He was on the staff of  Wellington, ami, as soon as the battle wa8  over rode at break-neck speed to Oiteud,  traversed the btormy channel at  TUB IIISK'OF HIS LITE  by a liberal use of gold, and was on the  Stock Exchange the next morning with an  iir.as calm and indilfercut as though buttle  Gelds played no part in~his"peaceful trade  of financier, Thc public knew only of tho  events of two days before Waterloo, when  the Prussian Field Marshal, Diucher, had  been beaten by a detachment of "tlie French  army at Ligny.' The gloomy air of Rothschild and the reports which were set in  motion of tho,defeat of tne allies caused a  sudden tumble in the prices of securities.  The secret egents of the hoi.se seized tho  opportunity to make ouoriuous purcnases  of the English consolidated stocks, and  Hoih.'ichild realized millions, when, a fow  Jiours lawr, t'lo news of the Groat liritish  victory reached Loudon.  It was no! altogether by fiiicssc,liowcvcr,  that the M.oMi'-'.hililit built up the   strength  of their house. The founder, Mayer Am-  schel Rothschild, Was the son of a poor  dealer in furniture and bric-a-brac at  Frankfort,.and waa a banner there   at the  time of the Napoleonic invasion. The elector  of Hesse placed in his 'custody a sum.'of  about 15,000,000 francs in coin (������3,000,000)  which was transmitted in part to the son  in London,' the same Nathan Mayer, whose  hasty trip from Waterloo has ' just been  described. General Marbot, in his*"Mem-  oirs of Napoleon," tells of' the vain efforts  of the Emperor to force the old m*n to  surrender the money. A commission went  to his establishment and minutely examined  the vault and the books. Menaces and  intimidation were' in vain, however, ic  persuading Rothschild to divulge the whereabouts of the treasure, and the commission  undertook to play upon his religious  scruples   by    demanding   an   oath.      He  , REFUSED TO TAKE IT,  and there was talk of putting him under  arrest. Napoleon did not quite .care to  venture such an act of violence, and an  effort was then made to win the old man  by the promise of gain. They proposed to  him to leave him half the treasure if he  would deliver the other' half to the French  officials. They promised him a receipt in  full, accompanied-' hy a certificate proving  that he had yielded only to force and that  he was blameless for the seizure of, the  entire amount. "But the probity of the  Jew," says Marbot, "led him to reject his  proposition ',nnd they left him in peace."  The Elector, having returned to power  in 1S14, the Frankfort banker returned to  him exactly the deposit which had been entrusted tohim. Thetermsof thedepositgave  tho Rothschilds the benefit of the interest  earned by the money while in their custody  and was a large element in the foundation  of their fortune.  ' Nathan Mayer Rothschild had been established in London as early as 17!).'l, and  married there in , 180fi the daughter of a  rich. Jewish banker, Levi Birnct Cohen.  During tho war with Spain Nathan Mayer  was enarged, in concert, with his father,  with trausmittinu to the Duke of Wellington in Spain thc funds which the English  Government desired to place there. He  was reported to have gained in eight yearB  by these operations 30,00^,000 franes ("56,-  000,000). a high premium, which is ex-  piained by the risks mid difficulty of transmitting specie on many occasions across  France and through the lines of  TUB    HOSTIU:     ARMIES.  Nathan Mayer was al-to employed in  transmitting to the continental powers the  immense subsidies which were allotted  them by Great Britain. Thty amounted in  a single year to ������11,000,000 (������55,000,000).  These remittances were generally made by  means of exchange operations, and the  Ucll.Hchilds knew so well how to balance  them ogainst loans made by the continental  power-* and ordinary commercial exchanges  that during the eulire period exchange upon  the continental capitals was nearly always  favorable to England. Nathan Mayer took  advantage of the many fluctuations o.c die  Stock Exchange to swell his fortune, ant? i;  is claimed that within five years he tunicO \  over his capital 2,500 times. ;  After tbe abdication of Napoleon and the  general peace, Nathan Mayer had charge  of the issue through the London market of  large loans on account of the Kingdom of  Prussia, the Russian Empire, the Empire  of Austria, Hungary, the Kingdom of  Naples, thc Empire of Brazil and the  Kingdom of Belgium. Iu the meantime  other branches of the house .were acquiring  a similar position in the Continental capitals. One of the brothers, Anseim Mayer,  continued the business at Frankfort. Another, Solomon, established himself at  Vienna, whero he quickly attained a prom-  nentpositiouover the other banking houses  and strengthened his hold by the negotiation of public loans. A fourth brother,  Carl, established himself at Naples, where  tor 40 years he conducted the financial  operations of the Governments of the Italian  peninsula.'   But  THE MOST IMi'OIl'i-ANT  establishment w-as that founded -by James  Rothschild, at Paris, after the close of the  Napoleonic era. He was charged with  paying to the allied powers the war indemnities due from France, and as his power  grew he acquired a practical monopoly over  the issue of French securities.  These five'branches of the original banking house, although formerly .iistiuct from  each other, acted 'in concert, and one seldom undertook an important transaction  without consultation with the others. The  establishment at Naples was abandoned  ifter 1860, but a son-in-law of the Roths-  childs iiimcd Lambert established a bank  at Brussels. The New York branch is  under the direction of the Belmonts, and  the original Belmont was a German Jew  named Schoenberg, who, on reaching the  United States gave a Norman form to his  name. Prof. Olaudic Jannet.of the Catholic  Institute of Paris, from whose brilliant  bonk,'"Le Capital, la Speculation, et la  Finance Au Uix-Neuvieme Siecle," many  of theie facta are derived, sums ,up the  present nttiiude of the Rothschilds, and  their prominence jn tho financial world as  follows ���������  "The financial piwer of the Rothschilds  has recently been combined with a political  power, which, though not publicly proclaimed, is noufi the less effective. Nathau  Mayer understood the, interest which he  had in keeping always informed in advance  of hia competitors, laud even of Cabinets,  regarding financial and political even's  which might have an influence upon his  speculations.    He   organized    a  complete  this situation. At the Bame time that tbe  Emperor Francis II, created the -five  brothers Barons of the Holy Roman Empire,  he named'James Rothschild'hiB Consul-  General at Paris,and conferred the same on  function Nathan Mayer at London. Thettson  of the last was created a Baronet.

At  can believe Mr. John Reeves, the Roths  childs were all powerful under the Govern  ment of July in matters concerning foreign  .policy. They' occupied the position of  arbiters of Europe, and brought about in  1S-10 the fall of M. Thiers, whose quarrelsome policy threatened the existing peace.

While still in a trance she dictated a  I prescription which she suid would kill tho  beast, and on Friday ihopoorgirl was relieved  of tho foot of some animal. It is covered with  a thick fur, about the color of a rat, provided  with sharp claws and is not unlike the fool  of a kitten.

Delations Hctwccn lina-lnn-l and Reruiany  are Strained���������Emperor lYllltaiit'ti Tall  Talk���������Rt'iiriinaiidud    by   the   ltritlvb  Press.  One'cause ot the friction between Franc������"  and England has been removed by the  signing of the agreement relative to the  Sierra Leone boundary, but there are still  other, points to settle which may' prove  vastly more troublesome. Egypt must  always bo a bone of contention so long as'  the British persist in occupying the country, and that there'is no immediate prospect  of their evacuating is made apparent whenever this vexed' question comes up for  discussion. England in other respects ia  showing a desire to conciliate France, and  were it not for the rabid utterance.* of a  certain class of Parisian journals, which  keep up  A CONTINUAIj XAGftl.SG,  the two .countries   would   soon be   on  the  best of terms.    M. Ribot, the new Premier,  j has friendly inclinations toward the United  ��������� Kingdom, biit he has to be   on   his   guard  i against false constructions, which the press  i  referred to is quick to put upon   any  conduct opposed to its own   particular  views.  Recent events, however, show that.England   ���������  has more to fear from Germany on colonial .  subjects than   from, France.    Within   the  pusb fortnight   frequent   conferences   have  taken placo between the Gorman,Ambassador and Lords   Rosebery   and  Kitnberley.  The occasion for these interviews is the fact ���������  that the policies of   the   two   countries' in '  South Africa have come iu collision.    Relations between Emperor William and   England have been somewhat strained  of late,  and   the  strain has not heen decreased   hy  the better   understanding  established  between  England and Russia.    The 'railway'  which the President   ot the Transvaal   has  constructed between   his   capital  aud   the  frontier   received   considerable    aid   from  German investors.    At the Transvaal frontier it joins the Dclagoa Hay railway.    Thc  acr-iiisitinn by England of (he latter railway  would be a step toward controlling Delagoa  ,  Bay itself, and tho Emperor has  intimated  in  PllETTY 9TKONO TE14MS  th.it he will not allow the bay to pass into  tho hands of Gieat Britain. Tory organs  are warning Emperor William lhat such  language should only be used by one able  to bt.ck up his words by deeds. This, they  say boldly, the Emperor is not in a position to  do and England is not like Iy to quake at his  taking a lea' out of the ami- English policy  of Prince Bismarck. The young Iimperor  is reported to be angry over the criticism  of the lintish press. He lecalls the fact  that only a few months ago these same  newspapers toadied to Germany, and had  nothing but pleasant allusions to himself.7  But in the face of the last arrangement of :  Imperial friendships, which leaves Kmperor  William considerably exposed, he is forced  to acknowledge the truth of much tbey say, .  and relieve his mind by patriotic addresses  to "my army."
