readied on Thursday fit. New York.
This is the highest, for many months
nnd i.s probably caused in anticipation
of a demand expected to follow ' tlie
close of the,1' war between Japan and
China. > Japan, according to the latest
news, is to receive ��250.000,000 in
gold, payments to bo extended over
ii long period, and unless Japan sells
her <'old and substitutes silver, we do
not see that it can 'cause any permanent increase in the value,of the white
metal.' ,The "ride must, therefore,--- be
very largely speculative and will likely
soon settle back to a price which will*

The idea that some people'seemi willing to express and others to believe,
that there is a part}-in Revelstoke that
i.s the especial champion' of the work-
iii<*m.'in. and an opposing party that
wants thc workingnicin put down, is
nothing but'rot and humbug. Tho people of i.iiis place aro. all' in f.uor of
good wagijs for lali'oring nioii^the niei'-
chants and hotel lrccj��crj5. particularly,
otherwise niorcliants could, not sell
���goods and g..'.r. pay fftr, thein ,nor collect
old accounts, and hotel'nicu would, be
just as had!y**in the lurch. ��� The nien
who'are riding "that humbug hobby
will not deserve sympathy if they get
a bad fall. We would not refer to this
matter, wore it-not that some outside,
people may be misled into, believing
the foolish storv.  '
Kootenay mines is considered, the extreme necessity of smelting and refining works is plain. The high cost of
freighting ore long distances to American smelters would be saved. This is
$21 to Omaha, and in addition is the
IJ. S. tariff of ��15 per ton on the lead
contained in the ore.   < '
It is not therefore enough that B. C.
ores, should be smelted on this side of
the boundary, the bullion should be re-
the market is
found for the silver and lead outside of
the States, the mine owners will be
benefitted about 835 to the ton of ore.
The market for silver in China and
other countries at the west, belongs as
much to ours as to any country if we
show the enterprise' that will enable
us to get it. And as for our lead, we
believe that China is the proper and
even the natural place for iiu consumption, and will be' just as soon as the
monopolies and trade restrictions with
which that country is shackled by Europe, can be broken. 'Tt would not
have, been a cause of mourning to us,
if the war (aside from its brutality)
between China and Japati had gone on
until nil the trammels on' trade and
commerce which bind the Oriental peoples, had been entirely broken.

The S.ui Fi-anci^eo agents of China
and .Tnpnn bankers, says a late despatch, are checking the How of silver
i'roin Colorado. Utah and Nevada to
l.he Orient liy way of New Yoik, and
are shipping bullion to Hongkong and
Yokohiiimi from San Francisco. These
shipments are increasing monthly. A
local smelting concern separates the silver and goldin the bullion, after which
the silver is reshipped abroad in solid
bars. The cost of shipping $1000 in
fine silver from Denver to Hongkong
via New York and London is .$10.00,
and by way of San ������ Francisco is $11-.
The. liank of California and the French
���bank have, in a large measure, changed the iimv of the immense silvei output, which is regarded ils a pronounced
commercial triumph for San Francisco.
China, Japan, India and other Oriental
countries have been for years the largest consumers of silver in the world,
having teceivod through San Francisco
and London during the last six years
The above paragraph relating to the
market for silver in'Ciiina, Japan and
the IndicRj'from a San Francisco despatch, deserves to be studied by the
silver producers of this province. The
precious mineral is certainly here ,in
untold abundance; and the means of
transportation by the Empress line, of
steamers from'Vancouver, is shorter
and better than by way. of San Francisco. All that is wanting then is the
smelt inn of the ores, ihe refining of
the resulting bullion, and tho enterprise to (ind a market fi.r tlie 'pn.nlnet.

Three, new railways in West Kootenay, if 'not four, are likely to make
good progress towards completion this
year, even if they do not get into full
operation. The Arrow Lake branch
of the C. P. R. will without a doubt
be extended from Wigwam to the Upper lake. Connecting there with the
steamer for Nakusp, and thence by the
Nakusp & Slocan Railway to the Slocan mines, a regular shipment of ore
can be made all winter without interruption. ��� To avoid the risk of (delay
by ice on the lake, the new, steamer to
be built by the C. it K. N. Co. must
be provided with an ice-breaker powr
erf ul enough to keep the,channel open
in all weathers. , f
, The C. P. Rvand Navigation co. will
be compelled lo do this in order to hold
the business which it is expected will
be competed for,by the Kaslo it Slocan
Railway, reported-to be under contract
for completion liy, the .1st of'Sept.
This"line with its outlet-on Kootenay
Lake will not onl}' be a direct competing route for many of the mines now
shipping via Nakusp, but will give
transportation to 'many new mines so
far not within the reach of' railway or
steamer.' The prospect therefore in
the Slocan is for'an exceedingly active
and even rushing summer, both as to
railway building and mining development.       ; '
The wisdom of, the legislature in
withholding from the Red Mountain
Railway Co.can extension of its charter, as prayed for, will result in the immediate construction of the road, and
perhaps a second line from the Columbia at Trail to the mines will be built
by the C. P. 11. It is entirely safe to
say that had the extension been granted, not even one road would have been
builtthisyear. Themineownersof Trail
Creek can but be gratified that instead
Of no road at all, as might have been
the case if the charter had been extended, they will now have one at
least if not two railways entering their
cunp before the end of 1895.    "'

. Tt is very unfortunate in a small
community like Revelstoke, that there
should be so much prejudice existing,
that there seems really no way for people to get along in peace, and work harmoniously for the common prosperity of
the town. ' How different it is in other
towns in Went Kootenay. As described by one who has lived in them and
observed them intelligently,���Kaslo
always stands'a solid and unwavering
unit in favor of any movement that
tends to benefit the town. Nelson is
eipially so, although on a slightly different basis. Internal dissensions may
rago. but when anything arisen threatening her from the outside, when a rival town tries to gain an advantage
over1 her, the entire population aro
welded together like a rock-in her defence.
Those aro examples that might be
imitated by the people of Revelstoke.

Experimental Farm Seed Distribution.
. JMr. Win.'Saunders,   Director of Experimental Farms, Ottawa, Out., sends
out a cii culai' in which he explains that
during eight years   past the government, seeil distribution   has   been  continued  to farmers  in all   parts of the
Dominion, the object being to improve'
the character ami  quality of the agricultural products of the country. They
are forwarded liy mail in o-lU. bags, one
sample only to each   applicant.   The
Director says:    "The distribution now  ���
in   progress   consists   of some   of tlio'
most promising 'sorts of oats, barley, ,
spring 'wheat,   pease,    held   corn 'and
potatoes.   ' Already   more   than   7,000
applications   have ' been,   filed.     All
farmers desiring'to  participate in this
distribution'should send in their uppli- '
cations early, and state, which of the
above named samples  they would prefer, and their wishes will be met as far
as practicable, until the availablesUicIt,
is exhausted.   The grain can be'sent ,
early, but the potatoes will   not be distributed 'until   the    danger   of   being
injured ,in   transit   by   frost is over.
Letters addressed to   the Central Experimental Farm may be'sent free of
postage."   . '  _,(
The Kootenay Rapids Improvement
The work  of improving   Kootenay -
rapids, for the benefit of steamer navi-   ,
gatinn, which has been , going forward
'under    the , direction   of   Jur.  F. 0.
Gamble, Dominion engineer, for some
time, has now lieen practically finished. -
It consisted of about 1,000 feet of crib-
work with riprap on the outside to'protect from the wash of high-water.  The -
work done this winter was  in connect- ���
ing previous cribs by new work and in
extensions, and has   been ' going, on
nearly four months.    The cribs are located on the edge of deep water to prevent steamers from'drifting on the bar
at places where the rapids .are strong.   .
If any further improvement is projected, it will doubtless"be a���<leupen*mg of.
the channel wheie rocks or the hard
clay of tbe river bed need blasting out'
for the advantage of navigation in low
water.      ' .     _    - ' '     -
" What a.Silver Dollar is Worth. ���
Mr. C. M. AllenV Supt: of tho Butte
and Boston Mining Co., gives the following explanation of the silver dollar:
" When silver is  worth 60 cents an  '
ounce the silver dollar is worth 46 4-10
cents. ' The calculation to prove this is
made   as   follows:     One.   troy   ounce
contains 4S0 grains, one grain   would
therefore   be   worth   1-4S0  part of fiO
cents,   which   is .125 of- ii cent.   One,
dollar contains 412^ 'grains, of  which'
9-10 is silver, therefore, in  one dollar
there are 9-10x412i grains, or 371| grains    ,
of pure silver, which multiplied by .125
cents gives 46 4-10 cents a*'the intrinsic
value of a silver'dollar when  silver is
worth 60 cents an ounce."
The report that J. Kirkup had beeu
transferred from Yale to liosslaud has
been confirmed.
Mr. O. D. Hoar arrived * last evening'
from Trout Lake City and tbe'Lu'trdeau
gold placers.   He reports the   miners
pushing work and making good stakes
of the precious dust.

Then they  had plums for their duff of a Sunday, while  the sailors got nono in their 'lump of lead.'

SCIENTIFIC  & voyage to Calcutta, when the Government chartered her to carry convicts and  troops from England to Gibraltar. It was  a most interesting experience. "We were  to take convicts from three 'different pri-  aons. About midnight on Dec. '22, 1869,  ���������we left' the East Indian, docks, London,  and dropped down tho river to Graveseud,  where the next afternoon we took cm^iOO  men'of the Seventy-first .Highlanders who  were to act" as guard for tho convicts.  Next tide wo towed to Shecrnoss, near the  North Foreland, whore we camo to an  anchor and waited for the first installment  of convicts sent from Chatham. They were  brought alongside on a small steamer. I  shall never forget how they looked to me  ���������I was_a.vouDg*iter���������tncn���������in their yellow  and blaok stripes, and with the short, flat,  brown arrow, which is the English Government mark, stamped on the clothing.  Having got them aboard, we made sail for  Portsmouth, our next roceiving station,  where we got about a hundred more. From  there we sailed to Portland, and took the  balance of 230 from tho prison there.  "\V3 lay in Portland Roads three or four  days on account) ot storm and then started  for Gibraltar.   ,While lying there  AN' INCIDENT   OCCURKED ,  which 1 can never forget ; but first let me  tell yau something about the arrangement  and discipline of tho ship on this voyage. A  staff surgeon of , the royal navy was in  charge - of the ship, and every one ' was  subordinate to him. He was absolutely  au autocrat. We weie a full-rigged iron  Bail-'ng vessel of 1,00.) ton? register, and we  had now on board, with convicts, wardens,  soldiers, crew, and families of some of the  soldiers, about 423 souls. So you can see  we weio pretty thick. The sailors, who  UBuallyhad quarters in the forecastle, had  to give them up and live, in'parl of the after  between docks. A barricade was built  across the ship at the mainmast, both between decks and on trie mam deck. ��������� Tho  convicts lived between decks forward and  ,were turned up for exercise every day i  before this barricade on the main dock. Of  course, the crew were not allowed to talk to  them, but they got in a word now and then  as they passed in and out among them at  their work.'   A sentry  was'placed in   the  "They had their amusements, too. They  were not allowed to read newspapers, but  once ina while one would steal one from  a warden's pocket. "Tlie warden would  discover the loss, and hunting up the thiol  take his paper away and stick it back in  his pocket. But before he had gone very  far another would pick his pocket1.

One night some  of us got permission to go down in the maiu  hatchway and look through the bars on one  of these trials. It was one of thc funniest  performances I over saw. The Judge's  bench was a mess table,and he wore^a bunk  blanket for a robe. His decisions were  provocative of great mirth,and the speeches  of the learned counsel were screamingly  absurd. ' When the trial was finished wo  were allowed to hand them in a little tobacco for a treat.  "Let me tell you about the soldiers we had  on board. There were some of Colin Campbell's n-.en who were at the relief of Luck-  no>w���������battered, grisly, scarred fellows,  who could have spuu you stories by the  yard. There was one old fellow called  Anchor Jack from au, anchor tattooed on  his forehead, of which ornament he was ex-  exceedingly vain.

Thereafter, they were allowed to wear the  numerals "28* both in front nnd in the rear  of their shakos, to,show they weie all  front, a distinction over any other regiment  in the army. ,  "On the morning we readied Gibraltar  just as rwe were going in, a gun was fired  and a checkered fUg was run up tbe staff,  This was the signal that a convict' had escaped from Gibraltar.

SMOOTH JiORE CUSS NOW.     ,  The very heavy cost ot modern guns is  largely due to the time aud labor which are  necc*"SH.rily'expended upon the operation of  rifling them. It is almost impossible so to  make the gun and the projectile that the  iolt driving bauds of the latter shall at the  moment of discharge, accurately fit into the  grooves and lands of the bore, and allow no  nates to pass ahead.

A despatch from Paris says :'���������Worth,  the famous "man dressmaker," is dead.  The cause of death was congestion of the  lungs. 'J  Charles   Frederick   Worth  was born in  Uourne,  Lincolnshire,    Englaud,   iu  1823.  At the age of thirteen he  was   apprenticed  to a printer, his parents being dosirous that  he should learn that trade, but ho   evinced  a strong hostility   to handling  type, and  abandoned the printing ofiice after he   had  served about seven months.    Ho then went  to London, and through the assistance of a  friend secured a position in a draper's shop,  which position he left to enter the employ-'  ment of Swan aud Edgar, drapers,   where  he    became a favorite.    He first conceived  the idea of designing fashions through conversation with  the buyers   of   Swan   and  Edgar, and   frequently made   suggestions  which   the   heads ,of   departments    were  not, slow to see iu a favourable light.     The  more he talked with the  buyers, the more  he resolved to go  to. Paris, and so   began  the   study   of   French.    When about   '21  years he went to Paris,  and  shortly  after  his arrival iu that city secured, a  position  with  Gagelin and Company,  and in a.,few  years was placed at the head of a department.    In his new capacity he inaugurated  mauy new departures.    While in   the   employ of Gagelin and Company  ho   received  medals for displays at   the   Londou   anil  Paris   Expositions.    Later he   established  the firm of Worth and Boberc, and in 1870  founded the famous house'of Worth.'    His  fame as a dressmaker abounded, anil among  the  muny   admirers  of his skill  was   the  ex-E'iipress Eugenie, for whom he mide a  great many elegant  drissos.    It has   been  said that while Puris   rules  ihe  world  iu  fashion,   the   man   who  ruled   Paris, -M.  Worth,  was   a  Lincolnshire  lad,   so   that  really it was an   Englishman  who wivb   the  arbiter of the world's fashion.  NEWFOUNDLAND AFFAIRS.

'  ", The family sitting-room should be the  coziest, sunniest, prettiest room in the  whole house, for it is here much of the  home life' is spent and where the en ire  family oftenest meet. Environment has  such a marked effect on people that we can  readily see why their surroundings should  be as pleasant aB possible���������refined, elevating, and happy.  ( In choosing the sitting-room give first  choice to a well-lighied location, and second, to a largo, airy room. There must be  a place for mother's tall work-basket aud  low rocker, for father's.,big eaBy chair, for  the commodious couch, for the centre table  with its magazines and papers, the, hanily  bookrack, aud besides these, places for all  the young people and their ainusemeut-i ;  so that the room must needs bo large.  Having chosen the room, the furnishings  must next bo'considered.' The walls may  be tinted, but a pretty' paper harmonizing  wiih the general toue of carpet and furniture is , much bettor. As to the floor, a-  hardwood floor with numerous rugs is to be  preferred, but are not always practicable  in tho country. Let the carpet bo a body  brussels if rhe purse is , long enough, and  with neutral colors predominating. Nothing is more barbarous than a conspicuous  carpet. A pretty rag carpet is better than  a cheap ingrain, which will hold the. dual.  The windows should be caverod with  opaque shades, and then with full-length  dotted swiss or other wash-curtains. < Sash  curtains may also be used if desired.  Abundance of light is a necessity both by  day,and night.. A largo hanging lamp in  the centre of the room over the centre table  is a good idea, but it'will not furnish sufficient light'for a number of people difler-  ently employed at .the same time. , A big  lamp on another table ie often, used, or a  smaller one on the work table.  If there be a bay window in the room it  will be just lovely fixed in this way, and it  will give oue of tho boys a chance to exhibit  his skill in carpentry: Get pine boards  about a foot.and a half wide and saw them  to fit the nitles of the window; miter the  corners nicely and make the seat extend all  the way around the window. Urace them  well so that they may be firm and serviceable. Now let the daughter make cushions  covered with.crotoune to just fit, aud then  put a valance around it reaching to the  iloor. This makes a comfortable nook.  ' Plenty ol cushions in the chairs and on  the couch make them inviting. These may  be made of cretonne or doiiuu, and stutied  with excelsior if feathers are not to be had.  Any furniture store keeps excelsior, and  enough may be purchased for a few cents  to stuil' half a dozen cushions. ���������  Let there be books in the room, not necessarily a large and expensive collection.  Better paper covers than nono at all.'', Books  that the children read every day, picking  them up at odd moments. They should be  selected with care, for every book has an  influence,.and it it be of the wrong kind,  wili take much longer to eriidioate than it  did to instil.  ,'Keep games on hand for the,young poo-  ple. There aro many to be obtained, and  thev afford mauy evenings of arnusomenc  in the winter. Parchesi, chess, checkers,  dominoes, authors, fortune-telling, cards,  and playinK cards are^a few of the more  common games. Then there are innumerable puzzles, many to be found in the newspapers.  If there are musical instruments in the  house, and it is not practicable to have another room where the children may practiso,'  let them lso be in the sitting-room. And  don't forget that other sweet musician, a  bird. These cheery little songsters brighten'  many a tired"one by their music, '  Whatever else there is or is not, there  should bo a tall work-basket and stand for  mother. She is always stitching away on  trousers that will get holes in them'and  stockings that simply refuse to cover tho  active,feet. If she has nothing hut around  basket to keep her sewing articles in, a  stand can be made by taking three broom  sticks aud cutting them to the required  height. Then cross them and uail lirmly  together. Gild them with gold paint or  paint white.* Then fasten tho basket to the  top by pretty ribbon, making bows over  each leg of the stand. Tie a big bow where  they are nailed together,' and a tasteful  stand is the result. It i<3 so much easier to  work with than the low one. ,  Flowers are always bright in a sitting-  room, and'the care of them" serves to  shorten the dull, cheerless winter. The  bay' window or another window may bo  utilized for them. Two or three (lowering  plants u pretty pots to use on the dining  tubleshould always be kept. A hanging plant  in a bracket on each side of the window is  very pretty when the vines have grown t,o  be a foot or eighteen inches long. Also a  large hanging basket in the centre ,of tho  window. The housewife, with a little ingenuity, will manage to construct ' some  kind of plant shelves on caBtors, so they  can bo easily moved. The kinds of flowers  cultivated will depend upon what is available If there is no greenhouse iu tho  vicinity, those who have flowers in their  homes are always, willing lo give slips to  friends.  Many tasteful decorative articles may bo  added to   tho room as there is time found  sifted.    Bake   in a   moderate oven  about  forty minutes.  Buckwheat Cakes.���������The best buckwheat  cakes, it is said, are made with the addi- -  tion of corn meal flour and oatmeal flour to  the buckwheat is this proportion : Three  cups buckwheat, one aud a, half cups oatmeal,flour, or if this'cannot'be obtained,  substitute graham flour in its place, and  half a 'cup corn meat; to this add a small  teaspooiiful salt, two l tbiespoonfuls molasses, aud lukewarm water sufficient to  from a batter; Etir through the flour well two  teaspoonfuls baking powder before wetting;  but these cakes r.ie much better raised over  night with yeast.

Forage Crops for Dairy Cows.  ,GraBS���������green/Bucculcnt grass���������including  clover, is the most perfect forage for cows,  writes a 'correspondent.' Good pasture  grass makes, a ration balanced just right for  a milk-producing food. It is also palatable  and easily digested-^-qualities that are indispensable. But we have gcod pasture  ' only a small part of the year. Grass grows  "well.in May and June, then comes' the he������t  and draught of midsummer, with its short  pasture ; or, if the number of stock is small  in proportion,to,,thc size of the pasture,  with, at best.'ita tough and.dried up grass.  In tho latter part of summer or in tho fall,  we may have auother spell of good pasturo  if we are fortunate enough to have plenty  ' of rain. .. '  It is certain, if we expect to get the best  results and most profitout of the dairy business, the pasture must be supplemented for  at least partof the summer with other food.  't havo come to  relying legs   and 'less   on  ' pasturo as the years go by and land grows  more valuable.   < In fact,   I doubt it  being  good policy   to .pasture any if   the whole  farm is good, tillable land, worth from fifty  "to one hundred 'dollars an acre.'    If one has  ', rough land or low   land  that   is  not  well  adapted to cultivation,   of course we can  ��������� have it in permanent pasture, but we can  not expect it to carry cows all through the  itimmer without help..     t    "  On my own firm I have a permanent  pasture on land rather rough for convenient  cultivation, which contains about half as  many acres as 1 have head of stock.    Be-  . fore the cows are turned on, the grass, is  allowed  to get up so as to afford a good  . bite.    It   affords  nearly enough .food  for  , them������while the grass is growing the most  rapidly. But they are fed all summer other  forage 'in the stable night and morning ;  also a small grain ration, which I am sure  pays. The supplementary feeds aro green  rye, clover, green oats, iiometimes millet,'  second crop of clover, green fodder corn,  beginning with some early variety and ending with some late variety. These feeds  come along in the order I have named. If  there is more of each kind than is needed  to feed at the time, we cure it for winter  food.  Peas and oats make an excellent forage  in places where peas do well, but they do  not seem to flourish on the farm.  For winter forage I rely maiuly on  clover hay and the corn crop. Clover makes  the best bay for dairy cows if cut at tho  ���������right time, that is, when in full bloom and  sured in the right manner. Miliet makes  very good hay if  cut early   enough���������just  1 after it'is fairly headed out. Timothy is  poorer bay than either of the others for  cows. ,  ���������  The corn crop will provide more cow food  per acre than anything else. The silo is  the place to put'it. Good corn-ensilage  and olover hay,'a little dry corn fodder, a  very littla straw, and about ten pounds a  day of wheat bran and gluten meal is what  my cows are having this winter, and they  are doing nicely. *  I have never practised putting up corn  ensilage,for Bummer food, but I know of  ���������some that do with excellent results. Tho  cows will leave the best of pasture and eat  the ensliage greedily and produce a largo  amount of milk. I believe thixt more profit  cau be made dairying without pasturing at  ��������� all, if the farm is all good tillable land, by-  putting in nearly all the farm to corn and  cloverand feeding ensilage every day iu the  year. Asensilagedoes not make a perfectly-  balanced ration ������or milk production,clover  should alwaysk be fed with it. The cows  should also have other protein foods, such  as wheat bran, oil meal,or cottonseed meal.  I am certain that in this way there would  be no,, trouble-, in keeping; one cow to  each acre of good land, or in producing  300 pounds of butter per acre, and "have  the farm growing richer instead of poorer.  . I should expect, of course, that all the  products of the farm should be fed to the  cows and none sold off in the shape of  grain. But I should also expect that the  hogs and calves fed on the skim milk  would bring' enough to buy tho foods  necessary to feed that were not grown on  the farm.  Feeding Corn Meal.  While it may be admitted that corn is a  staple food, and corn meal the cheapest'and  most convenient material in general use pa  most farms, yet it is not the best food for  chicks, nor is corn the best for fowls. In  tho winter, when the wdiathor is cold1 and  the birds should be kept warm, theu corn  is tho material for that purpose,ns it is rich  in carbon and creates warmth, but for  growing chicks it is insufficient. It must  bo considered that unloss the growing chick  is supplied with all the elements necessary  for assisting in tho formation of bone and  muscle it will gradually droop and die  without apparent cause,in the sumo manner  that a  plant  withers  when  not  provided  He touched earth once more in the endless' flight of delirium, and felt a hand on  his forehead.- He seemed standing with  her'again under she apple trees by the  Maumee,   ,, _ '   ���������  "David I am here."

There was  a crutch beside him that would be his companion to the grave, out there was no  "bitterness in Ins heart toward it. He  simply laid his hand upon it and said : "It  was fate- that gave mo thie.^ Because I  lean upon it, 1 havo gained you also to  lean upon in "our walk through time, aud as  we go together up the loug avenues of eternal life."'   .       c      "  She answered " Your cry,' forgive and  como 1'pierced like a spear-thrust through,  my pride and stubborness.

The  crowds that throng about the cases in this  room are composed of persons of curiously  diverse characteristics. It is a centre of  interest for scholars and literary people,  and yet seems as attractive to the least  learned of the visitors. The room contains  the department of auto0raphs', and manuscripts, and the treasures displayed in it  are pcrhapB the most' humauly interesting  n the whole museum.  Here are all manner' of writings by the  hands of the world's great men of many ages  aud countries. There are personal letters  of kings and'popes, queens, ministers, and  courtiers, whose names in hiptory, in atory,  and in song seem not to stand for real men  and women, but rather for legendary beings,  and these reveal in some homely phrase or  bit of simple^eutiment a couch of human  nature which seems to make them more  akin to those who curiously scan the letters  to-day.' Here one may come, as it seems,  to actual acquaintance with the most notable of the characters in Shakespeare's  historical dramas, and get a new reading,  in,the quaint original, of passages in  works.

There are also letters <��������� of a  more or less private nature written by  Charles I., by his son, Charles II., by Mary  Queen of Scats,, the Pretender, all the  Georges and William?, and most of, the  other English Kings.  Of letters by famous persons other than  royalties, having reference to important historical events, there is wondrous wealth.  There is the originil letter written by  Archbishop Cranmer to Cromwell, Wolsey's  ^faithful servant, thanking him for obtaining the'King's permission that the Bible  should be publicly sold and read throughout  the lealm.

' There are autographs of almost all the  English sovereigns who have reigned iu the  last five hundred years. The signatures  of the kings who figure in, Shakf speare's  dramas, together with many of the dukes,  earlB, and nobles who walk the stage with  them, are to be seen, and in many instances  in documents that recall some of the most  striking parts of the plays. "Richard  Gloucestre,", afterward Richard III. ;  " Harre Hokyngham," the ill-fated Buckingham, and " K. Edwardus' .Quint us" are  all on one slip of vellum, cut from a volume  of state papers of the date 1483.  All the leading characters of Shakespeare's "benry Vlll." are represented by  autograph letters. There is a letter from  Henry VIII. to "myne swire good Cardi-  nall," written in March, 1518, when \\ ol-  se'y was at the summit of his greatness and  in'highest favor with the fickle King.  "Surly yow have so substancyally- orderyd  oure maters bothe off thys syde-the see and  byonde." wrote the King, "that iu myne  oppynion lityll or no thyug can be addydi "  H<> signs himself "your lovying master,  Henry R." Close b ice this is a pathetic  letter written by  '     ' CARDINAL WOLSEV '       ,  after his disgrace, dated March 9, 1530, to  Stephen, afterward Bishop of W inchester,  but intended for the King's tyo, in which  he says : ','"1 trust yt wole now please his  Maie3te to showe hyapety,oompassyon,and  bowntuose gooJnes towardes me without  suueryng me any leynger %o lye langwysh-  yng and consumyng awey throwth thys  myn extreme sorowe and hevyues." The  letter is subscribed, "with the rude hand  of your   dayly   bedysman,   T.

It is  signed, "your loving mother, Katherinea  the qwene." BeBide this is a letter from  Anne Boleyn to Cardinal Wolsey concerning her coming marriage to Henry VilL,  thaukh-g the Cardinal "for the great payu  and travell that your,grace doth take in  stewdying by your wysdome and gret  dvlygens how to bryng to pas honerably the  greiystwelth that is possible to come to  any creature lyvyng," and promising "that  afler this matter is brought to pas you shall  fynd me, as I am bownd in the meane tym,  lo owe' you my servyse, and then looke  what thyng in this .world I can inmagen to  do you pleasor in, you shall fyntl mo the  gladdyst woman in the world to do yt."  There are two notable letters written by  Oliver Cromweli, which show the great  commoner in different lights. One is to'  Lord Fairfax, announcing the capture of  'Wexford, and in it he says. 'The Lord  shewes us great mercya heere, indeed Hee,  Hee only, gave this stronge towne of Wexford into our handes." "The other letter is  to his "lovinge wife," in which, after speaking affectionately of several members of his  family, he beseeches her to " Minde poore  Bettie of the Loid3 late great mercae," and  continues : " Oh, I desire her not only to  seeke the Lard in her necessitye, but indeed  and in truth to turne to the Lord and to  keepe closoe to him." The handwriting is  small, clear, and regular.  A curious pair of documents are counter  proclamations by  LADY JANE GRAY, AKD QUEEN MARY,  both announcing their succession to the  throne of England. The one by Lady Jane  Grey is dated from the Tower of London,  and requires allegiance against the " layned  and unirewe clayme of the Lady Marye,  bastard daughter of our great uncle Henry  th' eight." It is signed "Jane, the Queue."  Mary's proclamation denounces " the ladie  Jane, a quene of a new and pretie Inveu-  cion.'' There are other pathetic letters by  Lady Joue, written from her prison in the  Tower, all of which she signs "Jane l.he  Qiieen."  The one letter in,the room written by  Elizabeth i* iu   French  and   was   written  , LITERARY RELICS,  as distinct by Eimple letters by famous  authors is especially interesting.- Thore is  the original agreement by which "John  Milton, gentleman," sold the copyright of  "a Poem, intituled Paradise Lost" to  Samuel Symmons, printer, for the sum of  ������5. This however, was, not ' the total  amount he got for the poem. He receded  ������18 from the sale of subsequent editions,  making his pay ������23. Ono vof the three or  four existing signatures of Shakespeare is  also to be seen. It is attached to a mortgage deed, and is written "Wm. SHAKSPa."  Milton's Bible, containing family records  in his handwriting, is in a case'near by.  There is a volume ot the original draft of  Pope's translation of the Iliad and Odys-'  aey, in.his own handwriting, written for  the most part on the back of letters addressed to himself. Other notable treasures  are the original manuscript <of Burns's  song, " Here's a health to theni that awa,"  and Gray's "Elegy," some manuscript  musio by Handel, Haydn, and Beethoven,  and poems by Goethe and Schiller.  1 Of great genorals and admirals, like  Wellington and Nelson, documents associated with their most notable achievements  are exhibited. There are shown the last  letter written by Nelson, dated on board  the Victory, on the eve of the battle of  Trafalgar, addressed to' his wife ; arid a  letter by Wellington concerning, tho  arrangements for the Peninsular campaign.  Of the great statesmen, such as Pitt, Fox,  Burke, Warren Hastings, Olive, Waipole,'  Hampden, and Churchill, autograph letters  connected in some way with their greatest  work are to be seen.'

All that remain's of the Magna  Charta, 'which was burned with many  other documents in a fire in tbe museum in  1731, is preserved in a special 'case, to be  seen only by speciil permission.

Dig   nevelojuucut rroiti Ancient Ts men to  '   '   '  the Pr������-������eut.   ���������  The "History of the Horse" formed  the subject of an interesting address de������  livered by the Hon. L. N. Bouham to tha  Btudents of the Ohio State University some  time since.  The speaker did not discuss Professor-  Marsh's theory that the horse was etrolved  from a small, weak and awkward animal,  ready for man's ruse at creation. Moses  seems not to have considered the horse a  factor worth mentioning among the live  stock in the days of Adam. Egyptian civilization, however, honored him with a placa  on monuments aud works of art five hundred  years before he was referred to in the writings of the Israelites. Though they wan-,  dsrod in Arabia.the home of the noted Arab  horse, they took no interest in his develop- ,  ment. Six hundred years later thoy had  advanced out of tho nomad state, and  Solomon took to . horse3 and' mounted  cavalry from Egypt, after which Israel  dwelt safely from Dau to Beersheba.  The Mohammedan' conquests wore made  on the horso and by thvo horse. The Indians of America were feeble to resist or invade bo long as they had only dogs as their  beasts of burden. After they began to,  'draw horses from Mexico thoy were metamorphosed into horsemen'whoso power for  evil tlie history of our frontier attests.  ,, From the lowest to the highest civilization the horse has been made the power for  developing tho the resources of tho land, or  for deiense or invasion. Tho Greeks in  their highest civilization improved the  blood drawn from Egypt, To develop tho  endurance, speed, style and docility demanded in the horse which was to be tho  pride of kings and men of wealth races were.  iustituted which supersede! the" athletea  and boxers at the famous Grecian games.  Kings and men of wealth expended fortunes  in breeding and fitting horses for these  gamos; Gilon,, Hiero, Dionysiua and.  Alcibiade? were proud to traiii and show  their horses. Alcibiados sent seven chariots  at ono time and won first, second, and  third prizes. -  From 'the Greeks tho Romans  derived  their   best  blood   and   ideal of a  perfect  horse.    The Arab traced fhis stock to  the  stables   of   Solomon.    Their superstitious  devotion to the' horse   as of divine  origin,  coupled   with   their   giugulur   fidelity   to  pedigree, along with the salubrious climate,  and rich grasses and herbage, and training,'  evolved the wr.nderfulArabian horse. To him  the host blood of Spain, then of England, and !  finally of America truces. The student can  traoe this blood into Barbary and along the  coast of the Mediterranean   Sea into  Normandy and Flanders, thence into England,  and see how,the habits  of the   people, tho    '  climato, soil and   uses made of tho  horse  developed   the  warhorso,    the   ponderous  draft,   the   fleet   thoroughbred,   and   the  coacher.     f , .' ,  The wars, crusades and invasions  led tD  mingling bloods, ovolviug dillerent breeds.  The Norman conquerors founded the heavy '  type of warhorso,and every invasion south  brought back,more of the Arab or'Spatiish  blood. . The Normans lest nothing of their  enterprise, skill and persistence, and made  their impress on every,land they   invaded.  They   established   trading-posts   even   in  Canada,and founded Quebec, leaving thoro .  enough good blood   to found tbe wiry and  durable Canadian horse.  Nations which have bred grand horses ',  have traits of greatness and high ideals, and  have iutelligence'and onterprise to appreciate, and develop dosired' anil valuable  qualities.' Traits may be created. The  docility of the Arab horse, the milkiug  trait ot tho Friesian cow, wore bred into  the stock and devoloped by selection aud  use. Great breods of horses are evolved only  by races of men ot nobility of character and  marked power. When tho race of men falls  into decline thoir horses decline. Three  hundred yearR of degeneracy have reduced  noble blood left by the Spanish invaders of  South America' to the level of the Mexicin1"  greaser und his mustang. 'Tlie Indian pony,  with all the meanness and toughness of his  Indian master, is the product of rtegenera-"  tion from the blood of the noble Audaluaian  and the Norman horse brought to Canada  in tho fifteenth century.      v-;"      v  The horse in his development and use has  in every age been a fit index of the dcgiee,  of civilization of a people. The Arab and '  Mohammedan used the horse ouly tor chaso  and war. A people like the English needed  horses for bearing burdens and tilling lands,  as well as for ceremony, for sport and fer  war.  The tastes and fashions of a monarch  influenced,the style and use of horses.  Charies I. and If. imported tbe royal mares  of the scud-book. James II. continued  importations. William the Conqueror  wanted heavier horse's for war and agriculture. He imported from Normandy arid  Flanders. Henry VIIf. wia so eager to  improve thc horses for cavalry and agriculture that ho caused horses under siz*i to bo  destroyed. His roigu of thirty-uight years  was marked by an in:rease in the number  and value of powerful horses and in a like  improvement in agriculture and wealth of  thenation.  Two hundred years of improvement led  to the establishing of the stud-book in J 791  The"i ight little so" has evolved ihe wonder  of,ages by intelligent and persisterit bleeding, selection and development, the biootied  horses to which directly traces the American trotter. The trotting horso issui ceueris.  He has been evolved under dillerent con-  dit:ons of climate, feed,fashion and business.  For centuries horses were used only for ���������  war and ceremony. The trowt'r is th>- product of necessities of IruMnp-is,and,lias been  developed in the fashi-iu'of sport and  pleasure. Hickory and Keel sprinn-i have '  made li-.'ht vehicles possible, and dnviug to  light vehicles has become a fashion which  is fast evolving the hone which trots  instead of canters, p.iees or ainbieu, as did  tho horse of earlier ages. The trotter has  been evolvod from the necessities of business or sport. The borne of old was ihe  horse of war and waste.
