Our Oluh may not  he ilit the top of the tree as shots but  there is no 'diM-ouiit cm their hospitality, and although many had lo - be disappointed, I here was mil one present  who was nob glad he,had come, and expressed the wish that this was only the  first of what will hereafter be an annual gathering of the lover*-, of the gun  in the interior. The match was a decided suet-ess. A spirit, of good fellowship, horn of the love of a common  sport, pervaded the entire gathering,  and made the gun club grounds a good  place to visit yesterday. o '  The assembled crowd was large and  enthusiastic and at. times even demonstrative. Each team had its, admirers  who watched its varying fortune with  keen interest. Amongst those fiom  outside were noticed, IUrs. and 3fiss  Spragge, Air. anil Airs. C. N. Nelles,  James Oullen, of Donald : A. P. Cummins, Gold Com., Donald: Win. .Mc-  Neish, Capt. of the .Golden team, and  Chas.

M.'Kellicy M. P. P., Thomas  Kilpatriek, -Donald, and Thos. Fletcher, Armstrong, were appointed referees, J. D. Sibbald, as scorer, and dipt.  Davie, as puller, officiated to the entire  satisfaction of those interested. After  the preliminaries were arranged mid  agreed to, no time was lost in getting  to work, and the sport was kept going  sit a lively pace'for about two hours.  When'lunch hour arrived there were  eight more birds per mini to ,lie shot.  The winner'Wiis an unknown quantity  but it looked to lie good betting that  lhe cup would go west, and it' was a  toss-up between 'Verifon ' and Armstrong for first, place, they being a'lie  ,\\;ilh 29 birds each Lo theii credit, while  Golden was only one beliint1, having  scored 23. Revelstoke wa-* fourth with  lil, while Donald was l.-i.--t, No.-l having  22 and No. 2, 1-1.a But appearances are  often deceptive,' and so it proved in  this case.  The Donaldites must have'got something to wonderfully improve their aim  during the short adjournment, and ������it  is said dipt.. Trickey was willing to sell  the secret after the success of his club  was assured, though publicly he attributed it to , the club's mascotte���������.Tames  Cullen (Cassiar.) But whatever it \vas  it powerfully.affected him, for he went'  to lunch with only -1 birds to his credit,  while in the afternoon he succeeded in  getting 7 out of a possible' S. The rest  of the team showed a like improvement; Archdeacon McKay got Gout of  his total U ; Melntyre, 5 of his total S ;  Dailies, 5 of his total 11, and Armstrong,  G of his 12.  Vernon was soon outof the race, and  from- bein'g a likely winner they  declined rapidly.'finishing fifth. Cleriii  being the only one who succeeded in  holding his own, getting 5 out of his  S birds.  Gulden's chances of success were good  had Wallinger kept up his morning  average, and Lowe did as well before  as after lunch. . '   '  Armstrong made a pluckier fight,  and the result was doubtful until  Irvine fired his last shot, because it  was long odds in favor of Evans getting  his two last birds. Therefore, when  Irvine missed his last bird the last  hope of the. \yesterners���������of 'making a  tie���������failed them, but they found consolation in reckoning the winner of lhe  gold'inedal amongst, their number.

Their  efforts culminated this week Thursday  and Friday in an entertainment at the  school house, whim numerous articles  of their deft handiwoik, useful and'ornamental, were placed on sale, and an  .interesting programme was pVesented  composed of tableaux, recitations and  musical, selections. Tlie room was filled, every seat occupied, and even standing room w;is at .1 premium, when,, the  opening number of'the programme,  was announced, which was ,-i recitation  by Stella-Drown, followed by a song  ���������'Ti ue as 'the, Stars that are Shining.''  -by iWis. Mnrthey. Mi. Procunier and  Guy Barber. Then came a tableau "The  Bridle Scone.'' and another, "Joan of  Ai',-," the latter by JJi-jsLyda Edwards;  Guy Barber gave the song In Old .Madrid ; tableau, "'Faith, 1 ffjpe and Charity," by Alice Northey, JMyrtleToinple,  Stella Brown and Frank Tii own ; duet,  Mrs. Noi-llvy and Mrs. Ll.

The grave-digging scene  in Hamlet was we'll given by O.  Ii. Slinw, as the grave-digger, F. G.  Cotton as Hamlet, and- E. F. Syder as  Horatio.  The entertainment was repeated at  Bourne's Hall Friday evening followed  by a dance to which'the visiting gun  clubs were ;\11 invited, and which "was  very enjoyable. A li'igh measure of  credit sliould be given to the ladies for  their successful efforts, socially and financially, in this matter. Special mention must be made of the doll competition between Mary Edwards and Myr-  itle Temple, the prize being awarded to  .Myrtle. The total amount realized by  their efforts was. I he veiy handsome  sum of IiW.7.5, and should entitle each  one f O'.-i, inagnifice.it, doll. Archdeacon  Hie Kay, who was present from Donald,  presented the prizes in"a very felicitous  manner. The netl results to the treasury of the Ladies" Guild will considerably exceed $200. Thanks are due to so  niaiiv for furnishing edibles, etc., that  as tlie full list could not be obtained,  it.seemed best t'o omit any mention of  names.

This bonus would  not raise the price of the article to the  consumer,'and would' not therefore create the opposition   which a  direct increase of the tariff would   provoke in,  eastern Canada where there is uo   lead  produced. , The course  suggested   for  the benefit of our lead industry is worthy of being considered by our legislators both ;it Ottawa and   Victoria, for  we li.'ive never found -the consumers at  the east willing "to 'tax themselves  di-  -  I'cctly for the sole benefit of ji western  province,-but wo do see them quite willing to impose 11   tariff on <goods   consumed at the ,w 'J'. .1 large   proportion  of which is disburocd from Ottawa for,,  the benefit of tax-payers at  the.'east.  The following extract contains tho principal points of the article :,  "As soon as the industry should beacon) e firmly established, the advanta-,  ges which the home producer would  have, in the' way of economies in labor  and transportation charges, would bring  about such competition as would actually lower the price of the article. The  iron smelters in Ontario now have the '  protection of a duty on the imported  article and,a bonus of $3 per ton-T-$2  from the Dominion Government, and $1'  from the Ontario Government. Is not  the development of our lead ores as  important'to us as that of their iron  ores is to the people of Ontario 1 Have  we not'.as good claims to aid from the  Federal Treasury as'they have?  " We think that both , the Federal  and Provincial governments should assist in this matter. The question as  to the'size of the market which will  be available for the product, need not  deter us any more than a .similar suggestion prevented the authorities at Ottawa and Toronto from aiding the Ontario industry. ,\Ve shall at all events  have the Canadian market for all the  articles of which pig lead forms the  basis. In the question of the cost of  transportation in competing with foreign producers in neutral markets, lead  will certainly bear a rate of freight  which the coarser metal will not stand,  and in that respect we have an advantage over tlio-e engaged in lhe iron in-,  flitstry in Ontario.

' '���������  Shu had made all her preparations.  The pieviousyearshe had soiled her delicate dress, and she remembered how Lord  Roland Ayre had looked at her u3 he  pointed out the stain.  Now sho was more prudent:.  She hastly buttoned on a dark ulster that  completely covered-her pale-bluo gown and  otherwise protected heibelf against the  colti, for she recollected even now, with a  shudder, how the wind,rushing up from the  dark aperture, had seemed, to strike her  ,wi'h its icy breath and chillher to the very  bone.', l    '  There was no snow on the ground this  yeur ; it was a green Yule-tide, and old people talked ot theie beinga full churchyaid,  'while others, more hopeful ami less prone  to ,take a gloomy view of, mailers, said  there was frost in the air, and before >,ew  Year's Day there would be skating ou the  river and the lakes.  With her nerves strung by a nameless  fear to the horrible task before her, Grace  Lilburn'e, wentswit'tly to the|chamber which,  a year 'ago this very night, had been the  scene of such a'cruel tragedy.  It was not "until she had lighted the lau-  tein and fastened the door behind her,  ..nd she felt herself quite alone, with- the  consciousness that'her victim was lying  so many feet below(the spot on which she  blood, :hat her courage waveied, and for  ii few seconds she felt tliat she could ciot  look.upon the face of lhe dead.  But while fear weakened her resolution,  Miriam and Sir Victor come into the hall  together, and not seeming to notice her,  they at oncc,joined the dancers.;  She sat and watched them, absently and  vacantly, and she saw the looks of lovo  that passed between them,  Grace knew quite well that Sir Victor  would never have thought of mtrrying her  if he had not believed her to be her father's  only surviving child and sole heiress,' a'nd  now the wondered if Miriam had persuaded him that Kate was reai'y'alive, and if  at the last'hour he,meant to desert her for  his 0,1(1 love.  And then again she wondered did Miriam  really know anything about the missing  girl, or was she only giving expression to an  unreasoning conviction, when she asserted  her belief that Kttte was still alive.  She knew not what to do nor which way  to turn.  For one wild moment she thought of  going back to' the tower chamber and  flinging herself into the same dungeon-she  had intended to be her sister's grave.  But this impulse could hardly be called  a temptation, for she loved her own life  too well to throw it away recklessly, oven  when it seemed to be most worthless, and  when to all appearances she had nothing to  look forward to'but exposure, disgrace and  punishment.  When her mind becamo more accustomed  to the situation she began to think that she  was frightening herself unnecessarily, for  now she remembered that the bottom of  the shaft" into which Kate had fallen  seemod as though it wete,only a portion of'  a room or cellar which was probably as  large as the chamber above. '  u ���������lli>v, ._   _   ���������     If this   were the case,   the   injured girl  a hornbi'e'Tascination seemed'io  draw her i might have crawled away   into borne dark  on with irresistible power to complete the  purpose which brought her there, and to  Mitisfy herself beyond all doubt that Miriam Hindman's hints and suggestions meant  nothing more than a desire to annoy her  and make her uncomfortable -���������  ,. "She said there wi.fi a seciet passage  that led out of the house," she muttered,  under her breatti; "if there is I will find  it, ,and in any case I"will waste no more  time now, for if I stay long I am^ure to bo  missed.''    ' ,      ' ^  coiner, and there'tetnained unlil death had  mercifully ended her stttlerings.

Despite the folly of such a proceeding,  however, a man, wearing a thick ulster, and  judging from his appearance well-to-do in  the world, certainly was loitering outside'  the castle on tlua eventful night. ,  He kept well away from the doors, and ho  took good care that the brilliant light from  the windows did not fall upon hirn.  And judging from the outside, Silverton  Ctmle was unusally, festive to-night, for  there wus scarcely a window in the great  building which was not lighted up.  But the stranger lingered longest-near  the old part of the castle in which was the  great hall..  If you could have looked well at his face,  you .votild have seen that he was young  and handsome, and you would probably  also havo observed that ho was nervous  and ill at ease, us though he knew ho was  doing soinclliiug of which he was more  than, half ashamed. He seems doubtful  now as to whether he will carry out'the  purpose that brought him here, or sro away  without accomplishing it.     - ,,  And yet his object in coming is not to  wrong any one, even though ,it may increase hiB own pain by feeding the flame of  a perfectly hopeless love.  ' ' \es, it was love that had biough't Frank  Fairiiold to this cheerless spot.  "Love that makes the world go   round."  The same passion of which Byron wrote ;  "Alas I what is there in this world of ours,  Which makes it fatal to be lov'd ? Oh,why  With cypress branches hast thou wreath'tl  thy bowers , '  And made thy best interpreter a sigh V  . He felt all the keen powers of hopeless  love as he wandered outside the house that  held the jewel he adored,yet dared not seek  to win.'  Far as the east is from the west,' so far  was Kate Lilburnels love from him.  She loved him .with the kind, passionless  alFeciion of a sister's love.  Nearer or dearer than this ho might never  be to her, nnd he bad promised to accept  this truth, and to crush all further nope  and desire out of his he-irt.   -  A promise so easily given, so' difficult of  performance. ,,  All,tinough this������day the demon of unrest  has been upon him, und at length, unable  to control his nctions',he had left his mother's house, unci harnessing the cob to a  phaeton, which he had borrowed for a  week from a neighbor, he drove the old  vehicle in the direction of Silverton Castle.,  'Arrived at tho outskirts of the village,  he left the horse and' carriage in a shed,  and set off to perform tho rest' of bis  journey'on foot.  He soon i-ot tirod of walking, however,  and as he cume near the deep, narrow river  he betliought himself that he could ap-  proich the.c.istle in a boat with very much  leF.s chance'of being recognized.    ���������, _  So in spue of the,cold he took a dingy,_  and then though the darkness of night  was setting in, he began to row towards the  castle for he knew every winding of the  stream  that flowed beneath its walls.  His childhood and youth had been'spent  in the home of the Lilburuos and the oldj  peer himself was not half bo well acquainted with-his own property as was i'rank  Fairiiel.I.  It was quite dark when ho moored his  boat under the castle walls and went cau-  tioiib'y around the mansion to, inspect it  and lo try to catch  one glimpse   of  Ivite.  The dogs did not bark at his approach,  for they knew him and he had some difficulty m quietly yetting away from their  ton 'demonstrative atiectiou. ,  P-iit the obji-ci of his fatiguing journey  was not" attained.

' Fear of detection,and of coming suddenly  upon somebody he knew, made him stand  and eagerly listen for every sound.  He had just come to the conclusion that  whatever might be the condition of the  floor above, the coast for himself was clear,  and he was about to take a few steps forward and, mount the iron ladder, which  he oiteu used before, when the rush of  wind increased and tho sound of voices  overhead became distinct.  , There seemed to be words of expostulation and of encouragement, then there was  a1 despairing gasp of terror as something  appeared to foil.  ,  Whateveijit ^vaSi its descent was arrested for a moment, but only, for a moment,  then with a heavy thud the something fell  close to his very feet.  He looked up, but there was no light.  Whatever it might be that was lying so  close to him, it uttered no sound, and ho  w;.s standing bewildered, not knowing what  to do, hesitating whether to go away at  once, or strike a light and ascertain what  had happened when as he' was hesitating  and doubting, he heard indistinctly avoico  overhead,,and then, more plainly, the grtit.  ing sound of tho floor above being forced  back into its proper,place.  It was only at this moment that the conviction dawned upon his mind that some  fearful crime had been commitcd of which  he had been the unintentional and unsuspected witness.  A low groan olose beside him roused him  to immediate action, and, he took a box  of wax matches from his pocket and struck  a light.  The desire that had ��������� brought him hero  this night above all nights wasgrutiliod ; his  eyes' rested once more upon the face of  Kate Liilburne.  If ever.a prayer was'granted and camo to  the supplicant as a curse surely it, was so  now with Frank Faifield.  He looked upon Kate as she lay senseless  athis feet j'blood was flowing from a wound  on her forehoad, and from a second wound  on the fide of her head.  And yot her lall had been slightly broken  by her go'wn having beon caught by some  projection from the wall.  Tho wounds on her were serious, however, and Frank tried to stan, h the blood  with a couple of large handkerchiefs ho'had  in his pocket.     '  This wos no easy mattor,ashe had to do it  in the ddrK, his ii-ix matches being of 110  use except for, a second or two at a time.,  Kate remained senseless, an 1 the young  man tried to rovivo her by forcing somo  brandy which he had in his flask,down her  throat.  But his efforts were in vain, and the  dank vaulo in which they bothwere chilled  tho blood iii his veins, whilo the girl who  was lying ou the floor was almost as cold  as though sho was 'dead. ,    '  - His first thought)" was for Kate, and- ho  took' oil" his thick, 'warm ulster, wrapped  her in it as well as he could, then turned to  leave 'her so that he might'rouso tho in-  mates'of the castle and bring them to her  assistance.'       , '      ,,  He had only taken a few stops "nowovor,  for this purpose before,he paused, suddenly  "rendered powerless by the difficulties and  dangers of lhe situation, not only to himself, but to Kate, until bIio should be suf-  licently recovered to explain what had  happened.  What business had he in the castle would  naturally bo the first inquiry, and ho was  compelled to admit that he had none���������that  he was a midnight, trespasser and might be  taken into custody as a suspected person. ,  Then again, it was evident thata deliberate crime had been committed of which  Kate was the victim ; but who had planned  or excuted it he had not tho'faintest  idea.  He was completely iguorant of what had  taken place inside of the castlo during tho  hours he had loitered about outside ils  walls ; and now for many months past ho  had held no communication with Lord Lil-  burne, nor with either of his daughters, so  that who was living, with them or what  their manner of life might bo he did' uto  know.,   ���������  Arguing from the unknown, it was very  probable that if he raised un alarm and  gave Kate back to those to whom she belonged, he might be'only handing her back  to the power of her enemy,who would soon  find some means to complete the work so  viciously begun.  And then again, he,felt that his own  story would sound incredible) and that if  Kato died from .her injuries he would bo  accredited wilh her death..  But1"there was another feeling stronger  than fear, and more potent than prudence,  that really actuated Frank Fairfield's conduct.  ' Ho wai loyal to Lord Lilburne, 'and he  would die rather than break his word by  even hinting of his lovo for the baron's  daughter ; but while ho did tliis, he. could  like "rise take care of her and guard her  until it was-safe to rostore her to her  father.  His lovo for her might do this much, and  yet be loyal and irue and Helf-sacrilioing,as  a.l puroan.l noble lovo must be.  "No one can nurse her liko 'my mother,  who has been the only mother she has ever  known," he murmured as he hftod the fair  girl tenderly in his arms and carried her  out of tho vault, into the open air.

For The Yoim^  The Boys' Welcome  "Let's ud have fun with the new fellow-  living at Farmer Smith's. He's as green as  grass, and we can   have   lots   of   sport. "  "I'm in for that. It does those city  chaps good to take them down ; thoy think  they know so much 'more than we. But  what shall we do,1 Jim?" asked Thomas  Waison of James Mould." "~  "Oh, we might get him to stir ' up the  hornets in that nest, ride Mr Burke's old  mule,'divo int'o.thc deep nole, and anything  else that will givo iisaoiiai.ee to laugh at  him.    We'll have lota of fun. "  "And what will ho have, Jim ?" asked  William Cole. ',, ,,  " He must look out for himself as we do.  But he'll get acquainted with us and tho  country," replied James.  "That .is, you,mean to force your acquaintance on a Btranger, punish him for  coming to tho country, and take pay for  your liouble by compelling him to suffer  that you may laugh. 'Well, city people  may bo green, but if we do that wo will bo  worse, and show that wo are mean."  " There it is again, 'Will.    Half the fun  does not suit you ; and you   call it mean.  What's the harm in teaching the new boy  'a lesson or two ?" asked Thomas.  "Tom, I only op.ose fun when it is  wrong. , What if he gets stung by hornets,  falls oil' that mule and breaks an arm or a  leg ?    Would that bo fun for us?"  " You always ec,o dreadful thing's that  don't happen. We want to see what kind  of a fellow he is; if good, wo want him to  belong 10 our crowd; it badj we don't care  to have him; that's all."  '"But, Tom, we might tako it another  way; pleasanter to him,'1 and more credit-  able tone. You propose teaching him a  lesFon, yot.he may not need any. ��������� Ue may  te.ach us one instead. Suppose he teach us  to be noble, while we aro treat iug him  meanly ; how .would we feel ? 'I hate to  do a thing of which I am ashamed, and for  which I, must apologize later. "  "W'll, you arc right. I feel that way,  too. But what do you propose?" asked  John Hart, '   , '  " Let lib treat him as a gentleman ; and  then, if he is something else, we can let  him'alone, yet feel that wo'did what ia  right. Lot us tretit him as wo'would like  others to treat us, if we came .from the  city to live."  After further talk , Thomas'and Jamea  yielded, and the four agreed on a plan.  The next Saturday moiniiig, they called  at FarmorSmith's and askod A brain Wilson,  the new boy, to go along for a day of sport.  The eyes ot the stranger brightened, but a  moment later the old look camo back, and  more sad than before.    He replied :  ''Boys, I thank you as much as I can.  You'ro as kind as can be to iuvite mc ; but  I can't go. Mr. Smith's away ; and he told  me to do this work to day. I've got to do  it.'        , -     ' ���������  ���������'Say, fellows, lot's help Abo. Wo'can  do it ali in two hours, and then have lots of  fun after," said William.  Thomas and James were about,declining,  but the, delight that shono in A brum's face  decided them. "  "Abe, can you go right after this is  done?" asked Thomas, "will you go right  along ?      ' ��������� '  " Indeed I will. .Mr. Smith said I must  do this work, and then I might have the  rest of the day 10 myself." was tho answer.  " Let's do it, fellows ; and divide tho  work into five parts, arid see who'll get h is  doi.e first," spoke James. ,  " Now, fellows, no slighting;" said John,  as each started with his work.  It was a steady nice to tho end. John  bent, with Abram last. Kadi gave lum a  helping hand ; and in less than two hours  tho work was completed.  Seldom do five happier boys go on a trip  of pleasuro than thosu who left Air. Smith's  farm that forenoon. There was no end to  their fun. They went swimming, fishing,  sidling, ate all the cliernc-s Ihcv wanted,  diessed and cooked along the shore tho  fish they caught,, toasted 111 the ashes eomo  new polatoes given them hy ,1 jolly ftiimer,  and at night came to,Mr. Smith's happy  and as satisfied as they were tired.  "Follows, if over you treated a, stranger  well you have ine,'' spoke A brum, as they  parted. "The fact is, I was afiaid to come  to the country. Kverybody said 1 he boys  here aro bo rough, and always playing'  tricks on strangers. But thoy didn't know  you. I felt awful lonely and homesick since  I came here. You see my father and mother  aro dead, my sisters nnd brothers work  out, so I had to come hero to live. I felt  nil alone in the world, but I don't any more.  You seem like brothers now to me. Do  you go to Sunday-school ?" '  "Yes, Abe, wo all go to the same school.  Will you go along? Tom and I'll como  for you to-morrow if you say so."  "Say so?    Guess I  do.    I used to go in  the   city,  but did not  know wheie  to- go  here."    When'l! you como ?    I'll be ready."  "Two  o'clock   sharp.   Sunday-school's a  niilo and a half away," replied Tom.  '.'Will, we got more real good fun by  trying your way than if we'd tried mine,'  said James, ufter they had left Mr. Smith's.  SUIil.O  THOUGHTS.

So far SS corpses have been  recovered. The damage done to propertj  is tremendous. '   ' ,  It now seems that tho disaster caused  by the bursting of the dyke ut Bouzey'is  more serious than at first supposed. In a  single commune, that of Uxegny, seven  kilometres from the scene of the disaster  proper, 2.1 persons were drowned. At  Nomexy eight bodies have been found.  Wherever the water flowed it, destroyed  everything in its'path. The village of  Bou/.ey, with its extensive - pisciculture  est'iblishmaia has disappeared. The steep,  vertical banks of the Canal tie l'Est burst  and emptied a reach of water eleven kilometres long into the Avinre valley, where  the flood flowed to Nomexy, 'where  it flowed into tho River Moselle. At  Darnieulles all the houses were destroyed, /  and few were spared at Auxforgcs.Hun'dred  of families have been rendered, homeless,  and many who were asleep at tho time of  the inundation lost even their clothes. The"-  burst reservoir, which supplies the canal, is  situated at Bouzey, and wii3 formed by a  dyke 300 metres long. It W113 built during  the years from 1ST') to I SSI,and was streng- '  thened in 1SSS and in IfcStt. It consists of.,  ti wall of masonry 20 metres high, and 20  meties thick at its base. "IJhe foundation ,.  was nine metres deep. The bed and the  remainder of the reservoir is of natural  rock. The dyke, was regularly inspected,  anil no signs of weakness had been detected  since 1800. The damago done by the flood  is everywhero immense, and it is believed  it will amount to ������10,000,000. ,   ,  ,Tne whole Aviero valley is a scene of  .ruin and desolation. The roads are strewn  with the debris from the. houses, the barns, '  'and tho fonoeB of tho pcisants. Many'dead  cattle and horses have=been found along the  route taken by tho flood of water.' At  Bonievre 1 7 houees were destroyed and 25  ot the inhabitants were drowned.' At On-  court three houses collapsed, but only ono  potscii' is known to have been drowned.  Seventeen persons are missing at, Uxegny, t  where 10 houses are iri ruiiis. It is believed  a total of 70 lives wero lost as a result of  the giving way of the dyke at' Bouzey.'  Word .has been received from President  Faui3j.thatJie.will visit the scene of the  disaster at once.  'The' prefeot 'of Vost'os estimates the  number of victims at 117. This Iojs of life  is probably under-dated', as no news.haa  yet been received from the parish of Frizeu, '  through which the torrent passed. The  sound of, tho bursting dam was heard  several, miles , away. Tho great, rush of  water lasted for titteeu 1ni111r.es, when  (i.000,000 cubic metres of water passed ,  through the break.

Every great power has its o,\n special  high'explosive with which its shells arc  Oiled. All tho high power explosives, however', are' in a more or less experimental  stage, and wet gun cotton is the material  upon which most reliance is placed. Thoro  ia no doubt of the efficacy, of 'the tremendously powerful explosives which havo  recently been invented so long as they can  be exploded among the enemy. When  subjected to the enormous impact which  is necessary to obtain the required velocity  of'2,000 feet per second, or thereabouts,  they are almost us likely to oxplo.lo before  leaving tho gun as afterward. If this  difficulty is overcome the next question is  lo prevent the shell from exploding before  penetrating the object against which it is  tired. '  The French pin their faith to melinite  which has been very' thoroughly' tested.  Shells filled with this composition have  been tirod through ten niches of ttriiior  without exploding.' The shells in this instance loft the gun's mu/./.le with 11 velocity  of '2.0(H) feet per second. Tlie English are  doubtful of-t.he safety of nielintu and tiso a  composition called lyddite. * It, gets its  name from Lydde, .in Wales, where it is  manufactured. Tho..-lyddito shells have  been successfully fired through five inches  of armor.  Ecrtisito is used by Austri1. Its composition is a secret known only to the two  inventors, who are Austrians. This ex-  'plosito has been, found to have especial  destructive power when used against  earth ivories.  Sweden lias decided upon the invention  of a Swede, which is called bellite. ��������� While  it has not as much explosive, force t.s many  of the other compositions,'yet it is claimed  to bo more stable. Its powers of prescr-,  vaiion are also much greater. Tl.e  United Slates has been making exhaustive  trials of a kind of gun cotton known as  emmenrite. Recently emmenriie has been  successfully fired from a high power yun  with a   velocity of over 2,000 feet.  As Hot as Sahara.  The great Sahara Desert of Africa ie  regarded as the hottest region in the world.  The vast plain which extends '210) miles  from cast to west, and 1000 from north to  south, has a temperature of 130 degrees  Fahrenheit in the hottest days of summer.  This is about tho temperature of the hot  room in the'Turkish bath. It is said that  the caravans,- which usually consist of from  500 to 2000 camels, with, their assistants,  experience great sulli-ring through the  intense heat and the deprivation 01 water,  as the distance botweeu wells ve;y often  exOeeds ten days. There aie numerous  instances on record where whole tribes have  perished from thirst, as the wells and  springs to which they had journeyed had  been dried up by the heat. It would re  impossible for any ono but the acclimatized  Moots, Berbers and Arabs to live, even for  a day, in the heat of the ruinlesi Sahara.

THE OFFICER'S STORY.  V  There had been   some discussion among  the younger members of the club as to what  which the   King  took great delight���������and  here at the appointed tune I found  myseh  with my friend, the resident and the royal  I -uite.    The Kim.', who ordinarily wore the , ��������� -      , -  plain black snitof an English gentleman, on J watch for some favorable chance ol   taking  this occasion appeared in hia royal robes of   him at advantage.  "At leDgh they separated, dsif by mutua-  oousent, and eacn retired a few teat���������pant I  in::, droonmg, bleeding; and eaeu ssoucned  lown, facing his antagonist and   ���������-eemed to  constituted the most princely , form ol  amusement. When ail the opinions had  been given, a retired officer of the English  army lit a cigar and blew a casual, wreath  of smoke  toward the   cenire of the group.  "Did any oi 'you ever happen to see a  fight between two liou3?" he asked.  Receiving a chorus of negatives in reply,  ��������� he settled back in his chair,   and with a  vigorous puff at   his-cigar, commenced his  story.  ,     " When I was first stationed in India,   I  was sent on a mission to Lucknow.  I carried  , ���������  a   letter'of   introduction to   our   resident  minister there, who received me with great  cordiality.    '  " 'I suppose,' he said in the course of conversation, 'you would line to see the'curiosi-  .ies ol the place ?'  ' " 'It would afford me much pleasure^' 1  in6wered.  ��������� " 'Well then, among other things, you  must visit the palace, see the King of Oude,  get, permission to go through his menagerie>  and perhaps, if you are fortunate enough to  please'His Majesty, he may honor you with  an exhibition of some beast fight.'  ��������� "'Nothing would please me better, your  excellency.'  ," ' I will do what I can for you then,  Major, but much will depend on yourself,  for' though 1 have  the right and power to  present you at court it'must be as the King  ivills about the rest.    I must tell you to  begin with, that I am not in special favor  wilh  His Majesty  ;   he fears rather than  likes   me ;  ho naturally views me in the  lieht of a restraint ; he governs his subjects  and 1 in a measure govern him.  Hecannot  it .  do altogether as he pleases because English  law bears upon him through my office, and  exactly, in that degree is the incumbent of  that office distasteful to him.    He professes,  however,  to like  .Englishmen; in fact,   the  , principal officers of His Majesty's household  are British subjects.    Ho is very eccentric,  and loves with  great, warmth   and   hates  with great bitterness, and just as the whim  takes him will be your success or  failure.  " He then made me,acquainted with the'  court etiquette of' India and   appointed a  day for  the  presentation,    Among   other  things I was to make the kinc a present in  gold, say ten   mohurs,    which    would   be  about seventy-five dollars,as a mere matter  of form.    These were to be placed on a fiue  '' linen haudkerchief.thc handkerchief laid on  the palm of my rigntjiaud   and tho  right  hand laid in the palm of my left hand, aud  ,   in this manner I was to hold them forth to  His Majesty.  Should he bow s'tilliy'without  touching them I was vto   hope for   nothing  more ; but should he approach, smile, piaoe  hia hand under mine and  touch    the   gold  pieces with his right hand, then   I was   rd  consider myself in high iavor.  " Of course, I waicsd the P eventful moment with a   good deal of   curiosity,   and  am happy to say I met with all the success  ,1 hopod for.    In the ianguage of a courcier  his Majesty was graciously pleased to notice  me in a kindly manner, nnd,seeing this,my  new friend, the resident,hinted that I was  a hunter of some reputation and a zoologist  ot eome .fame "       <���������        , o  " ' Indeed !'   returned     His     Majesty,  w:io- spoke     English   almost as   well   as'  ' his native tongue  ; 'then he must visit my  menagerie.'  " ' He will be delighted I' was the answer.    "  '" ' Perhaps he. would like to witness   a  fight!' ,   ���������  "' Your Majesty could uot give him a  greater pleasure.'    r  " ' Then he shall be gratified,' smiled  the Indian monarch.

" Nussir-u-deen (the son and successor  of Gliazi-ii-deeu), at that time Kiug of  Oude, a portion of northern Hmdoostan,  was a straight, tall, slender swarthy man,  in the very prime and vigor of life, wilh  regular, almost handsome features, and jet  black eyes and hair. The'general expression of his countenance, when in good  humor, was pleasing and prepossessing,  though there were certain lines that betokened strong, 6elfish passions, craftiness  and even treachery ; but these, when their  possessor was not excited or roused to  auger, would be likely to escape the notice   by some explosive power, aud hurled toward  oriental style, tnado of cloth of silver and  gold wilh a magnificent crown upon bis  head', and glittering from head to foot with  jewels. His chair of State, rich in decor-  a'.ions and coveted with a crimson umbrella-shaped canopy, had been placed for  him, and tho moment he took his seat five  beautiful,young women, splendidly dressed  in tho Tu'rkish'style, arranged themselves  around the chair and began to fan him. It  was a very hot day, and I was led to fancy  that there mi-.'he be worse things than  changing seats" with the 'Refuge of the  World,' as the King of Ouiie was called in  his native tongue.      - , ,  "As soon as we had all taken our ieats,  where' wo cculd have a fine view of the  arena below, two cages,were brought and  placed opposite each other, to the right and  left of us in ' the verandah that ran 'ull  arouud the enclosure t.eneath us j-tind in  each of,these cages was a large, formidable  lion. Through tho bamboo grating or  paling, and the bars' of their cages.these  lions could seo each 'other, and that was  what was wanted to prepare them for the  fight. They stared, frowned, giowled,  showed their teeth, roared, and lashed  themselves around their narrow limits with  great fury ; and when this had been permitted long enough to make it certain their  rage would lead them to a fierce and deadly  contest, the king smiled,' rubbed his hands,  an'd said to tho resident, who was seated  on his right :���������  "'They'will not balk us, your excellency ?'  ," 'I think not, your majesty,' answered  the British minister.   ,  " 'Is your.excellency disposad to bet ?"  asked tho king. , '  ' " 'A small sum, if it so please your  majesty.' ,. . ,  " 'On which beast���������Tinga or Coodah ?'  " ' Y'our majesty shall,choose.'  " A hundred   gold   mohurs,   then, ��������� on  Coodah,' said the   king with   considerable  animation. ' a ,  " 'I accept the bet, your majesty,though  I am ignorant as yet which is which.'  " ' Coodah is the lion in the loft hand  cage.' The resident bowed. .'Another  hundred gold mohurs on .Coodah I' added  tho king, addressing me.  " I had previously been instructed to  take whatever bet the king might oner ���������  the probability being, that the amount  would not be claimed by the royal head of  Oude, even if won, or ii claimed and paid  that twice tho sum would be returned in  the shape of a present���������so I bowed, smiled  aud replied: ���������  " ' If it,so please your majesty.'  "At this the king clapped Ins hands as a  sigual'to tho keepers to let the beasts into  the enclosure ; and the next moment, as if  by magic, a bamboo gate in front'of ,each  cage flt-w up, aud th������ iron door'of each cage  flew open. Seeing themselves face to face,  with nothing between them, each beast  leaped boldly into the arena with a catlike motion, and then stopping, with a low  deadly growl, they looked fiercely and  warily at each other, shook their huge  manes and shied off, each to iihe right,  with a few quick, curious and suspicious  glances at. every other object and  person around them, evidently feeling  themselves' in a dangerous .situation.  Tile keepers lost no time in closing  the doors of their cages and dropping  the bamboo gates ; and the interest of  all parties now became so intense,that the  silence was deathlike.  "The lions were so well matched in size  and appearance that I could not have made  a choice between them had I been permitted to do ao. They were both beautiful  specimens of the king ot beasts, and were  in fine condition. When they stood erect  with their long, bushy manes falling gracefully down eaoh side of their bold, hali-  hunniu looking faces, their short, stout legs  firmly planted on the earth, which they  seemed to tread w*th disdain, their tawny  bodies sloping off toward their long tails  which they waved with dignity,their large,  fiery eyes glaring upon each other���������they  did indeed look majestic and terrible. It  was a combination of beauty, grace, agiiity  and strength.  "They began their manoeuvres by circling  toward each other. Each went to the  right and began to move round in such a  manner that they-soon changed sides, each  being opposite the other's cage, , though a  few feet nearer each other than when they  started. Then .they stopped and stared  each other in tho fuco.uttered low,rumbliug  growls like distant thunder, showed their  formidable teeth,and resumed their circiinj*  manceuvres. This was continued for some  ten or fifteen minutes, amid most intense  and almost breathless excitement.  " Suddenly when at last only a few feet  divided them, there issued simultaneously  from each throat such an appaling roar that  I bounded clear from my seat, and more  tlianjonopersonutterecau involuntary exclamation of terror. At the same instant 1  saw each betisr,  lifted from  the earth as if  The king issued some command in hia  native tongue, and almost instantly two  long heated rids were thrust through.'the  bamboo paling on'eiiberside of the enclosure,  directed against the bodies of the panting  beasts. Both sprang up together, but one  turned aud "looked behinad nim. This wa3  a fatal mistake. With a bound like  lightning,,the other struck him fairly upon  his back, overthrew hitn'in an instant, aud  fastened upon his ihroat in,such a- manner  that he became perfectly heiplt-ss.'

The strong sharp teeth ot .Tinga had already  pierced lhe jugular vein and tore open the  throat of his antagonist, and ,when the  keepers forced him to withdraw, which he  did with the proud air of a conqueror,  Coodah lay   bleeding and gasping to death.  "The king did not seem well pleased at  the result, but he sent me his wager the  next day, which amounted to about 6750.  He iheu arranged for a fight to come oil" between Tinga and a, rhinoceros ; but this 1  did not stay to see, though I doubt not it  would have been deeply interesting as a  specimen of the wild, fierce ��������� combats of tho  jungle."

Mud stain9(,may be removed from velvet  by, washing with water to which has" been  added a little spoonful of ox gall and a little  spirits of wine. d  Apply baking soda moistened with water  to a burn and cover with a piece ,o_f old  linen to keep out the air. This will 'draw  out all the inflammation.'' ,    '  .White clay pipes which sell for a cent  apiece may bo crossed and tied together  with wide light .blue or pink ribbon and  fasted to the wall with white headed  pins.  There is a mistaken idea that 'ciiukly  goods like the new, crepons are not durable;  instead of that they are among the best  wearing of materials,���������seersucker for in~  stance. ' ������  To keep fresh meat perfectly sweet,place  it in a dish and cover it with, milk. It will  keep thus for several days. Sour milk or  butter-milk will serve the purpose.  Silver, cleaned and then rubbed with a  piece of lemon, washed and well dried, gets  a white brilliancy lhat is very desirable."  Silver thus treated will keep clean longer  than with the ordinary cleansing.      *  i Try some way of amusing your child if  he cries during his bath���������a cork which will  bob about with 'every movement of lhe  waler, or an eng with tho contents blown  out.  All  pillow   covers  should   properly   be'  made  in such a way that they   can be re-'  moved   for laundering as   often as it is necessary,  Buttons and buttonholes concealod  beneath    the   rul'lles   on   one side   are   au  excellent method of securing' the pillow iu ,  position.  A small wooden cabinet may be purchased at, small' cost to hold the numerous  bottles which collect in ti girl's room.

Report of the Women's Local Council
of East Kootenay.   '
In order that the work being
plisbed   by  lhe   Local  Council'
if Kasi.
Knnl enay, be more' widely , known
throughout, our district, and surrounding ones, we foi w ml yon a copy of
our Report, which lias1 been -eul, to the
annual i.iei-tiiigof (he Nat ioual Council,
to be held in Toronto, JM ay 27 th to Hist.
This report covers a .space of little over
.three months.
I n accordance with a suggestion of
Her 1'Jxcellency' we held a public meeting in Donald on the olst of January,
with a view to forming a Local Coun-
cil. II Wi.s unanimously decided that
one be funned, and officers were elected with Mrs. Molson Spragge,1,-is President.   , ,
The Ladies' Aid, Fnglish Church",
Mrs. Mcfvay. President;'and Hie Ladies' Aid. Presbyterian, Chinch. Mrs.
Glassliml, Piesident. have anili.ited
with the Local Council. The Catholics,
being l'e\v in millibar, have no .-ocicty.
but some of Ihe uieiiibers of that
church have,-joined, ,*is wurkei s. ,
, The Council has endeavored tootig-
inate some movements of practical
utility, and the following will, we trust,
matini': A Private School, a New Hos-
piliil'aud the "Pioneer Circle" of the
King's Daughters. The former is a
pressing necessity, as the puhlic'school
is altogether unsuitable for children of,
tender.years. The Council is in con w-
pondi'iicc with a view to engaging a
teacher. A New Hospital, is also urgently reijuiicd. as Hie existing C.P.R.
Hospital cbi.,'s not pi ovide any accoin-
inodation for women, nor has it any
modern roquirciiienls.       '���
The Local Council litis established a
branch of the Pioneer Circle of King's
Daughters, which, though ju-tstarled,
seems to meet, w ilh great- success.
c In our next repoi I,, we hope to have
a recoid of what we have done as well
as what we hope to do, but Donald is a
small place, besides there arc not the
same opportunities for work that one
finds in -i city. ;md our Local Council
is only three month.-old.
Three public1 and four executive meetings in connection with the Local Council have been held. ' The  following are
One of tin;  prettiest   spots  in  Jv.-nn-
loops is (he ho.-piliil.    Kighl years ago
when Mrs. Poller, (he  kindly matron,
i first  foiiU' possession, it  was a   plain,
i bare house set on it   sand   bank.    Now
I it has a broad pleasant  verandah  run-
I ning all around ; the grounds are neat-
' ly fenced   and   well   placed   with trees
I and flowers "in  season.    Within  floors
! the bright rooms have, an air of liome-
' ly comfort, and to this happy result the
" Ladies' .Aid " has contributed greatly.
Foi   the benefit of the  uninitiated, we
will explain that this is a society organized   among the  ladies  of , Kamloops
sonic years back, which  by  means  of
entertainments,   balls,  sewing  circles,
elc, has laised something  like $1000.
Fart, of this has been expended in   furniture, bliiids.'iiintting, etc., while  the
remainder is waiting to furnish ,-i Woman's   Ward-   which .is greatly   needed
here and which they hope to  see  built
,iu time.   ,       ' , >
The hospital, which has room foi only twelve patients, is at,,present;tccom-
���lnc'idatitig fourteen. The Government
makes a grant but sends a good number of cases, and paying patients are
few and far between. It takes in a
.wide radius���froiii.Norfli Bend to Cariboo, up the North Thompson, and from
the coal niining'district to West Koot-
-enny. and there is need of funds to
meet necessary expenses. The; institution is well and economically cairied
on, and has during its existence been
iin incalculable benefit "to many poor
i sufferers. In anew country like this,
wheie first class medical attendance is
in outlying districts dilliculb to obtain,
and many people have no houses or
worse in which io'he nursed, the care
and comfort, of an hospital, such as
we have here, will often turn the scale
between life, and death.
