AI.LAX  LINK.  in tlie shnpe of money,orders, tlie fuce  value of which had been raised. Time  and again this, reprehensible and altogether too common practice of paying wages with cheques or orders lias  been condemned but it still flourishes.  Prior to the hist general election the  then, premier promised legislation to  abate_the nuisance but '���������as yet the  statute booli gives no evidence, of'this  ante-election, pledge having ���������' been redeemed. As the practice is,as common  in this vicinity as elsewhere we hope'  th.it a,perus������l of His Honor's remarks  will in a measure, at least, have the  effect ' of awakening the public  conscience, to a' sense, of the wrong  inflicted by a ' continuance of the  system, not .done upon * the laborer  but also upon other classes of the community as well.    He said :  "I cannot allow the, opportunity to  pass of animadverting on the system  now in vogue with the 'large mining  .companies carrying on.their operations  in the Cariboo and adjoining districts  ,of this upper country of paying their  laborers or working men by cheques or  orders for money drawn on the headquarters of the companies in Vancouver  or the lower country.r This method is  prejudicial in the extreme to the mnn  receiving the price of his labor and to  the merchants, ' trader-.*, and hotel  keepers of the country. Tlie issue of  the**,!* orders for absurdly small sums  (some of Iheni for two or three dollars)  works harm to the recipient iii this  way: To cash such orders he necessarily incurs expense; he must  either fiuy something which possibly  Iff may not require, or he must, submit,  to the retention on the part of the  party finding tlie money at. a ceitain  percentage as discount. Instead of  having in his pocket the few dollars of  . cash which would enable him without  trouble lo himself'''or to those with  Uvhom he has dealings to make his way-l  to any locality to vvhich he is hound lie  has to circulate'^it a loss to himself and  at no profit to any one else these small  and usually dirty scraps of paper which  although' good enough when presented  nl the place of payment if pr.iperly  indorsed have yet no legal value in  ciiculation���������---Again, the issue of these  orders gives opportunity to evil disposed pei sons just such ns has been  seized hy the prisoner before me. ' The  two orders for money which he ��������� has  altered were both of them, so carelessly  drawn that no difficulty attended their  alteration. Both of them were originally drawn for $8. In each the word  'eight'was left with a space after it  permitting the easy addition of the  letter'y' which made it 'eighty', and  in each there was ample space for tlie  addition of the cypher vvhich changed  the numeral '8' into 'SO.' , c  "With such alterations he cleverly  made these orders once indorsed by  the -payers might without detection  well pass through' several" innocent,  hands before final presentations for  payment to those on whom diawn.  One can understand the convenience  to the companies of thus paying'for  the. la hoi" they employ, for in this way,1  at the expense of others, Ihey avoid  the expense of carrying up cash with  which lo meet their indebtedness and  also avoid the necessity of keeping  comparatively large .sums of money by  them; but. the inconvenience to the  public generally has been much felt  during the past few months. Banking  conveniences to traders and others in  a considerable way of hiiMiiess are. of  the utmost value, but an order1 for !j>.'i  or $30 to laboring men payable* at a  point 100 miles away is a nuisance to  him and a (rouble and loss to tho'-o  called iiiioii to deal with it, and without wishing to say anything prejudicial to the interests of the great, energetic and responsible, companies concerned, I do hope thai iu coming years  the laborers will refuse to accept as  payment for   their  services   anything  ���������   Big Bend Winter Mail.  The post office department has  signified its willingness to hear a  portion of the cost of a monthly mail  service to the Big Bend during the  winter months. The intimation is to  the effect that the department will  pay $20 per trip for five monthly  trips, an arrangement similar to the  one which .prevailed last winter. In  thi.s connection it might be< well to  remind the proper authorities' that the  man who carried mail matter to the  Big Bend during the past summer and  for a'number of. summers previously,  has never' received anything for his  .labor, not even the thanks of the. department, and they are cheap enough.  It is about time some compensation  was awarded him by the postal department, as he has frequently carried  mail to the exclusion of freight that  would be more profitable to him.    " '  LOCAL MINING-NEWS.  Items of Interest From the Camps  the Revelstoke District.  la  Africa is No Garden of,Eden..  W. Gordon Cumming writes under  date of July 7th from British Central  Africa. Mr. Cumming is prospecting  for gold and has found plenty of ,gold  bearing quartz, but too far 'in the  interior to' be worked profitably. ' Ho  will return to Edmonton as soon as  possible but expects to have to fight  his way out. as the natives in the  vicinity are very hostile. He says  the. country is, no garden of Eden and  is fe\ er' stricken.���������Edmonton Bulletin-*  The  THEY, WANT   SPECIMENS." .  Board   of Trade   Organizing  a  Permanent Mineral Exhibit.  The Board of'Trade -"is* making  an  effort to fill a "Jong   felt   want"   by  organizing ; a   permanent   exhibit   of  specimens from the   various   mines   of  .West Kootenay.    It is a   matter   for  surprise that an effort in this direction  has not been made ere'this,'as the lack  of such   an   exhibition   at   this,   the  principal point in West  Kootenay  on  the main line of "the'C.P.R., has   been  noticed and commented upon for years  past  by ..travellers   over   this   route.  However, it is never too late to make  a start* and the board's   present' move  is in the   right   direction.    Such   an  exhibition will likely be productive   of  much good iu arresting  the- attention'  of    travellers,    and    the  amount   of  advertising the  country   will   thereby  receive   will   not   be   inconsiderable.  The railway authoiitios are   seconding  the board's efforts   in   this   particular  aud have offered a -first-class  site   for  the cabinets in the vicinity of the railway station.    They already have   the'  nucleus of an exhibition but in   order-  to make it as complete as possible  the  secretary is asking   mine owners  and  others who can to  furnish   him   with  specimens of their   properties   accompanied  by a   few   particulars   as   to  ^location, assays, etc.    The   receipt   of  specimens will be  duly  acknowledged  by   addressing  them   to   C. E. Shaw,  Secretary Board of Trade, Revelstoke,  B.C.  Assessment Appeals Dismissed.  There' were only two appeals to be  heard at the Court of Revision on  Friday when Commissioner Fitzstubbs  got ready for business. H. N.*.Cour-  sier, Revelstoke, and J. E.

The following is from the. SantiiusVs  correspoiidcnt at Salmon Arm : '-One  of the most brutal and inhuman acts  ever attempted in this locality was  that of :i man who has since left the  settlement. Before going he said he  wished to bid good by to a neighbor  here, and.reaching out his hand the  other took it.' Then this individual  grasped his other arm around his  neigh hoi-and bit ofi one of his oars,  ft was a most cowardly act. as neither  party was under the influence of  li(|Uor. The matter was settled out of  court."  ' Change in Boat Time.  A change has been effected in the  time schedule of the C. it K. Nav.  .Co.'s boats to and from the Wigwam.  The full particulars of which are as  yet unknown. But il i.s understood  that the new arrangement will give  three trips a week, instead of two .as  formerly. The'largo increase in the  volume of freight to and ' from South-  ernO Kootenay has necessitated the  change.  The Fight is Off at Present.  'THefowners of the Last Chance,   on  McCulloch   creek,  are  showing   their,  faith in the property by the commend- '  able persistency with which   they  are''  prosecuting   operations.   There   have  been thousands of dollars sunk in   this  mine at different limes,   by different  outfits, in   efforts   to .reach ��������� '.cdroclt.  Tunneling to the. extent of 2,������)0 feet  had been done without  aLlutuing the  desired goal.  ,A change of   plan   was  then decided upon and work was com-"  menced on what is known as thu old  Yale shaft.'  This shaft  i.s  now t'owu  103 feel aiid in   order'to continue  the   -  work hotter appliances were necessary,  hence the big pump recently  built   by  the Albion   Iron   Works.   The   pump  was shipped  tor the" Bend   ou   Thur.s-  day by JfoVue's  boat.    It 'welighed -lj  tons.    If the.y ever reach bedrock Ihey  expect t<i strike it exceedingly rich.  The Columbia River Hydraulic  Mining Co. have given F. G. Kegler a ���������  contract for some .fi^.tXX) worth of work,  on their properly in the'Big Bend,  'which will be done during the, winter.  Tbe lumber will be. cut in the vicinity,  and five men employed on the job.  Prof. Nason, who has been conducting  the. operations of the company came  down on Sunday and will go east for  (.he winter, returning next May wt"-Ui  tlie necessary machinery. Two. hydraulics and 3,400 feet of pipe have already been ordered.1  The owners of   the American   have  just completed a rawhide trail  from  their claim to Trout lake���������2J miles, -Vi   >  men were employed on  the job.   This  staff   is   now   at   work, erecting"   the    t  necessary   buildings.     Work   will   bec  prosecuted and  ore   shipments   made  throughout the winter. There are about  30 tons on the dump already. .,  The'Gold Yam, a placer proposition l  oil Crimes creek, will be worked with  eight men this winter. Messrs. Howe,  Anderson and Bailey returned from  Tacoma this week and are getting  their supplies ready. ,  The Lanark and  Isabella   people, at  Illeeillewaet, evidently mean   business  this winter.

Tom Edwards, one of the owners of  the American, also went down and  may possibly remain all winter." l  Over six tons of supplies were shipped  to the Big Bend  this week.   Several ���������  of the camps have   begun   to   get   in  their winter stores.    '  Bill,Haley, the   veteran   prospector, -  is down from Camp   creek,   where   he  lias been at,work all summer. ' *  ���������   The trail to   the.

'  ,  The big plugging match, which was  to have taken place .Thursday night  between Corbott and Fitzsimmons, did  not materialize' owing to the interference of the police. Tt is a pity  that, the State authorities do not allow  the pugs to scrap, in which event they  might lie successful in breaking each  others jaw, and oh what a boon that  would be to a public who have  more than a surfeit of their brag,  and bluster.  had  bin II  The provincial govor-nineiit. has appointed Pmf.

Bishop Datt, ]>iocese  of Now Westminster, returned from  the South Kootenay district on Thu reel ay's boat, Iind held service in the  evening. After the service a meeting  of tho parishioners was held, presided  over by the Bishop, wheal various  church matters weia discussed, especially the building ai the 4iew  church, and the arrangements for  having a resident clergytuao.  The Alaskan Boundary Question.  A Washington   despatch announces  that  the  Alaskan   boundary��������� question  will be forced to a speedy   termination  by the action  of   Canada,   if   not   by  Secretary   Olney.      It   is    announced  that the Dominion government intends  to direct the Mounted Police to assume  control of the frontier along the   Canadian boundary of Alaska, with power  to collect cnstorns duties,   hold   court*  martial and try   criminal   cases.   The  American-Canadian    boundary     lines  conflict is 7.3 miles.of territory along  the Yukon river on the east and   west  line.    Tlie disputed territory einbiaces  the mouth of Forty-mile creek through  which access is had to  valuable placer  mines at the headwaters.    The Canadian police   in   carryi.ig   out   their   tost i uct.ions, will doubtless assume jurisdiction up to the lines of the Canadian  survey.    Several   thousand   America!)  miners who will be in that region    will  hhoi;tlv be subject to   their  authority.  Olnev,'it is  thought,  in   view   of   the  serious character of the >it nation,   wi"!*.  make an effort, to luiri������ uji tho dispute  at tbe   Ii<*hi ing   Sea   convention   this  week.    In case of   trouble   along   ttic  frontier of   the Yukon   mining region  the United States district attorney  tit  Sitka bus authority to employ   deputy  marshals to preserve   law   and   order,  but it   will   take   several   mouths   for  news of a disturbance to reach him at  Sitka, and his ordei-s will   be   carried  into effect.   Ofllcials of the department  ofjinst/ice say he will   not have power  to place men alon,g the line   for  police  duly or (or any utlicr put pese,   except  on special occasion?., such as a riot.

A chalky  quadruped with very stiir legs, and appar  ently, if you might judge by the disturbed  aspect of his mane and tarl, under strong  electric influences���������that was the White  Horse. He was woodenly electrified���������if j-  may be allowed the phr<tse���������on two inches  of seagreen grass, and wedged very, tightly  into a tky of improbable blue. A slight  win ping of .'the board, ,due to climatic  influences, had beheaded the White Horse,  and the painter, as if in anticipation of  that cfiect, had bestowed upon hia countenance a backward look of feeble astonishment.

Mrs. Varley sat there in a  black dross, sewing.and looked up sadly but  kindly as her husband entered. Sol closed  the little door, and took down a nautical-  looking jacket which hung behind.it.

" Let me  get a million   and I shall be  quite    happy.".   That   was   poor   Samuel  Cawley's cry.  Poor ?���������*������������������yes, you will understand presently ; he had the million  when  he died,  lie had a moderately comfortable  start in the world, thanks to the   industry  of his father, who left him a small steady-  going busiuess and the requisite knowledge  to carry it ou successfully. Samuel Cawley  did   carry   it on successfully, aiul'variou-  political and commercial eveuts   operating  iu his favour enabled him to transform,his  moderate business into an extensive one.  He was devoted to his work,  and   having  the quickness to use   the  lucky events of  the (iay advautageously,   he found hinmelf  in a few years at, the head of an establishment into which money seemed   to flow of  its own sweet will. At first he was humbly  grateful, then he became excited, and next  the craving to become a millionaire seized  him.    That craving fairly 'mastered him ;  it waa the inaiiibpring of hia every act and  thought ; he had no hope, no care���������almost  no religion, above or outside thutdesire to  possess  a million.    Everything   prospered  with him aud   his ambition was  realised.  One  morning he found that he possessed u  million ; aud, singular as it may.seem, he  closed hia books with a sigh of relief, satisfied I       '       , ' .,'-������.-  But'he was somewhat puzzled to discover  nfter the first few days, which were occupied  in  self-congratulations,   that'he was   not  quite   happy.      There   was   Bomething he  wanted still, and what thai something was  he did not know.    He opened his eyea, as  it were, for the first time upon lite outside  his   ledger.    He   had never had any, real  experience of youth,had never known, play  as a boy, or sport as a young man :' the world  of business bac.so completely absorbed him,  that tho world of,pleasure was unknown to  him.    Being Bti'lyouui'���������just turned forty  ���������he   determined   to explore this strange  world in search of that something which he  still required to make him happy.  ,   Ho left his business to take care of itself;  that iH, he spent a couple, of hours daily in  hia oflice insiead of ton or more us ho  had  done  formerly ; and the ..two 'houia  wore  sufficient to'keep everything straight.    He  took a  large hoiibe in the  West Knd ; he  purchased au .old mansion ir: Suhsox with  about a thousand acres attached,and ubund-  antahootiuganiifialungnlso���������unfortunately,  not   having   had   any'.training   in1'these  sports,   they afforded him 'no  enjoyment.  However   they, would please  his 'friends.  The appointments of his town and country  residences were perfect���������that is, as perfect  as ids servants would permit''them to be.  The cooking���������when the'cook was   in good  humor���������was excellent; the wines were tho  beat that money .could obtain.  Mr. Samuel  Cawley   was   ' surrounded   .by   troops   of  friends ; he   was .put up   at half a dozen  cluba,   blackballed  by   two���������much to   his  astonishment���������and accepted by the others;  he found himself, in'.short, courted on , all  hands as  a man  of sterling worth���������as a,  mau whom it was a privilege to know.    Ho  was amazed by his own popularity ; he had  never  suspected1 that   he   possessed   the  qualities requisite to shine in society, until  he found  himself   in society and shining  with all tho brilliancy of a newly discovered plauot. '  All this was very agreeable. After he  had gotovor the awkwardness of his first  appearance, he began to onjoy himself ; ho  began to think this world cf-amusement a  very good world indeed, and the people in  it a krndly and sensible people, with few  prejudices comparatively speaking, and  most ready to recognize uativo talent���������for  had ihey notrecognixed him ? He was tho  hero of the hour, und he'was highly delighted to recocnize himself in that character ; ladies admired his taate in art (his  portrait by an R. A. was soon in the Academy), and spoke of his sympathetic  nature : gentlemen praised his possessions,  and piofessed thu most kindly ouvy of the  gifts which Nature and Kortuno had bestowed upon him. Cawley was gratified  exceedingly : but ho novor thoroughly  understood what a great man he was until  at a large dinner party (tor1 which he provided) his hoalth.waa proposed.  Then ho saw himself in hia true colours.  He was not only a successful mau (cheers���������  why, nobody knew, for there was nothing  novel or striking in tho observation;  probably it was only meant, as a sign of the  universal worship of snecoss); but lie was n  man endowed with tire sublime philosophy  which could recognise that tlioro was something nobler in tho world than mcroauccess  in money-getting (a bit of humbug cordially  appreciated, ami therefore cheered); a man  who said to,himseli'���������'I'nough,! ^luill enjoy  life, and I shall help oliiors to enjoy lite,as  we aro doing nt rhm moment,ihunks to our  generous host (more cheers). To what  better, to wnat nobler purpose could n rrinn  iavnto himself? (hear,lit'iir���������qnil0justifiable,  this tune), lie wan rendering n great moral  service to'the world, and tho spmker did  not, doubt that the world looking ou���������  ������������������.-.pcciiiiiy tho fiooror claices, who worn not  his own pra'ces sung, and was inclined to look discontentedly upon  those dolts who accepted his disclaimers  literally and remained silent. He would  even, to particular friends, report what he  had been obliged to do for poor So-and-so,  lamenting all tho time that So-and-so  should have been so unfortunate aa to  require hia help,which he gave ao cheerfully  or rather willingly, as So-and-so was sucli  a deserving fellow,only rather careless'and  extravagant. So-and-so, in fact, would  neveri"t.'et on," unless he altered his ways  and acted according to^Mr. Cawley's  instructions.'" But, poor fellow, he was a  cood creature, and the great Mr. Cawley  felt obliged to (jive him the money to help  him over his present strait, although Mr.  Cawley fully expected that he would havo  to do the same thing agaiu in a very short  time. This confidence was repeated, in confidence of couree, to Mr. Cawley's visitors,  much to thut gentleman'i; glorification,  whilst poor So-and-co fr.und himself pro-  aently looked upon with pitying' oyes by  everybody, heard the goodness of Mr.  Cawley hummed in hia ears, until he became conscious that people were shrinking  from him the moie they buz/.cd round the  millionaire, and ho felt, ready to, curfe  Cawley instead of regarding him with  hones; gratitude. ' -    -  Tnat was Cawley's weakness ; he had  found the flourish of his cheque-book apparently such apotenf'open sesuino"io people's  homes' and , hearts', that, whilst .really  desirou*] of acting kindly, he lost all sense  of- the necessity for the generous thought  which is oven more essential in the composition of kindness than the free hand ;  the one being tho product of a good heart,  the other of good fortune.

She says:'  Paak-laoi is, I must explain, one of the  most popular Chinese goda. lie is supposed  once to have lived on earth, to ba-; been  foud of'buds aud very kind to them. Every  year, in the month of April, ,a celebration  is held in his honor. ,  This iestival, which I saw in the great  southern City oi Canton, lasts for three  days. Shops are closed, and servicer; held  every, morning and afternoon in tho god's  fine temple. On the second evening' a  curious and brilliant procesaion passed  through tue principal streets. '  First marcned the bearers of huge,white  lanterns emblazoned with Pauk taoi's name  and titlos. They .were followed by about  a hundred boys carrying richiy embroidered  banners. Then came tho history trays.  These wero wooden platforms covered with  clay figures arranged to represent ditlerenc'  scenes in l'uak-taoi's life, lie was shown  feeding birdH, setting their broken legs aud  teaching them tricks. , '  ��������� Tho figures were skillfully modeled and  beautitully dressed and painted,but the history trayd were eclipsed by the. next division  of th e pi ocession. Thousands of lanterns were  borue'aloft on poles,, each being the life-size  imitation of somebird. There were long-  legged , siorks, stately peacocks, gorgeous ,  golden pheasants, "snow" pheasants, with  long jet black tails, 'gieat vultures and  eagles, then at last glitteiing kingfishers,  tiny tits and roedlings. - All .tho lanterns  were ht.many covered with the real featheis  of the birds they imitated, aud they made  a veiy novel and very pretty ahow;.  After the birds rode boys of all'ages,  mounted on queer little .Chinese ponies.  They wore fantastio'dresses and had,their  faces painted black, 'white und red, with  here and thero a dash of gold.' Some had  gilded chins and eyebrows, others gold  noses and oars. Tire, older boys -were en-  joying'the fun irnmenaely, vying with each ,  other in puffing ouL their cheeks audi'making all sorts of queer faces ; but many of  tho little fellows were'more, than half  asleep and in.daneer of rolling off.thu back  of their steeds. Then more lanterns, moro '  bniiuers and a dreadful band of'(so-called)  music ended this amusing pageant.      <       , -  '( i-  ami  I'VOl,  t vvr.  the  HWOrd'SWil'  trio   ral bit.nkin  a -.'ell lik������  tnat  on  i tlie r '���������  I ' Corn ft in,' nnd Mr������.

'  "I have found ^ha���������t "more-depends upon  ���������-ho kind of cow one has for winter dairying,  than in summer dairyintr,, and the anirials  destined fe-r this -work cannot  be selected  too carefully.

The silo should bo  fillediwith good corn'and grass so that)the  ensilage can beifod.out as soon as frost has  put au end to .the green.corn. The ensilage  should.be in sufficient quantity to keep the  cow3 in excellent condition until green grass  oome-s again ihe following spring.  "The rations of the c cows ' engaged in  winter dairying should be daily about'  twenty-five to thirty pounda of ensilage,  and two and a half pounds-of coar8e middlings morning and night, aud two or tmee  pounds of clover hay at noon.' This ration  with plouty ,of .t'Mair. water and salt, will  keep tho,cows in.cplendid condition, and  make them yield a L*ood quantity of rich  ���������milk and cream through the whole winter.  If one lias roots and cabbages on hand to  feed to the cows, they will help to make  the diot more varied, aud the cows will  appreciate .the change. But generally the  above ration is satistaclory, and.itds not a  difficult one to prepare. Tlie . middlings  should be bought at the season of the year  when the cheapest, and an a large quantity  if any reduction can thus be obtained. Tne  water for the cows to drink should average  a temperature .of about fifty-four,, degrees,  aud ou cold, dny-s it must be warmed to this  point;. Ice cold water will chill the udder,  and check the flow of milk.' .& . a  . The cows,should be put into the barn'  nights just as soon as cool weather is here.  They need this shelter to, enable them to  do their host. The barn and yard should  he kept as'clean and sweet as'possible.  When the weather gets colder ,tho cracks  in the barn and stable should be closed up,  aud winds and draughts kept out just as  much as if you intended to sleep in the  place, yourself.

Then if the stable ia an old fashioned one, built right on the ground, fill  up the sides u foot or more with sawdust  to keep tho wind from sweeping up under  the boards.

What is  the best kind of hog to feed, and at what  ago should they be fit for the market?"  In answer, we would say that the'bpst  time to market hogs is when thej- are ready  for market,irrespective of the tune of year.  At the present time, the best demand is  for .hogs ranging from 150 to 200'pounds,  'when dreaBed, aud for these weights the  packers will give better prices, provided  that the pigs lire of the long, lean kind,and  not to 1 fat. Some of the country buyers  and shippers, it is true,do not ditcrimiuate  between this class of pigs and others, but  pay the same price for all they purchase,  and tlwy take care that the prices paid are  ou the basis of those paid by packers for  hogs less suited for their biisinpts ; that is  to say, they pay lower prices than they  should for the style of pig so   much in   de-  been known to cause serious illness. It is  poisonous to horses,' and is not wholesome  even for awine. Poultry, however, find it  pjilatablo and nutritious. The moths  especially aie so prolific that, the progeny  of a single pair in a twelve mouth will  number, many, thousands, capable of  destroying   , ,   ���������  siivnnAi, toks op grain.  Fortunately, the increase of these  pests is  checked to some extentby natural enemies  among.which are spiders that inhabit mill,'!  arid-granaries.    TnHhe fields they are p'rey. I  ed upon by birds and bats.  One of the worat of these insects is tho  familiar "gnvuaiy weevil," which 13 mentioned in tlie Oeorgics of Virgil. Ita  ravages made.it known" long before the  Christian era. It is native' to the region  of the Mediterranean. Having been  domesticated for so long a time it bus loat  the use of its wings. The female punctures  the kernel with her snout and inserts an  'egg from which iB hatched a little'worm  that lives in the hull and feeds on tho  starchy interior.        ' |      ,  Quite as bad as this beetle ia a moth  that comes from,the Mediterranean regiou  also. The larva, which is known as the  "fly weevil," does most injury to corn and  wheat. , In six months grain infested by it  loses JO per cent, in weight]and75 per cent,  of its starchy matter. Incidentally, il is  rendered totally unfit for food, and bread  made from wheat infested by the insect, is  suid to have caused an epidemic recently  in France.  this second day of torture the other sailors  were compelled to lower Bob over the aide  -to hook a mousing on the loresbeet. The  ship kept dipping.him in the water, but he  was kept there half an hour, The next  dny(3uuday)tho cross was still kept ou the  Eeaman's_ back. Another sailor who had  come in for a good share of the beatings,  John Graber.'waa sent to the poop to read  the Bille to liob, while'the matea stood'by  and laughed., Graber was1 also compelled  to pray for the man with the cross on his  back. ,  According to the seaman's log! from that  time on Bob was given only about three  hours' sleep a day. , On March 12 Bob was  sent aloft and made 10 cry, "Yes, sir; all  right, sir," for half an hour. On the 17th  the "cross'of capstan.ba'rs was removed by  the captain's order.   ' *'  On March 30th, while Frank Smith was  at the wheel,he let the ship be taken back.

A French doctot's conclusion   is that no  one should ride a bicycle who has a tendency  to excessivo tousion of -the arterial system,  for this   tciidenoy is a great cause of heart  disease.    Therefore, no 0110 should lako up  tho  u&e'of the wheel without tho  exprea"  authorization   of   a   lhyjk-ian;   and   the  doctor  should   make un  examination   not  only before the patient   begins to   use  the  wheel, but after he has ridden it for a time.  Moreover, tho amateur  should never ride  at a high speed.    If one's riding is regular  and daily, one may go faster arrd further  but  Hogs should be  ready for market when  they aro from six'to ten months old, if they  have been properly ltd and pushed on.    It  is (asy to get them to the requiicd weights  at those agea if the right kind  of pigs are  kept,    After that time when those weights  have beeu exceeded, more food will be required in order to seoure the same amount  ot  increase of  flesh   that had  previously  been iiiiule on leas food, and, therefore, our  correspondent  will see that  tnere will be  more prolit made  by marketing   his  hogs  before tho  period of increased feeding required   arrives.    A few  years   ago   some  feeders made a good deal of money by rattening  '.pigs   for   marketing   duriri'0'   tne  months of .Inly, August and September,  when   the suppiy of  hogs waa  light, and  when, in coiiPtijuencc, prices  were cori'dd-  erably higher than later iu the year, when  larger supplies  come in.    Now, however,  owing to the increased number of cheese  factorloa aud   oreunieriea   in the  country,  and the.large number of hogs kept by them  and   by priva 0   individuals,   in order   to  consume the whey and  skin.-milk   during  tho summer, prices   do not range as   high  aa lormeily in compirison with those print  Another wicked   imported   hug  is the  "rice   weevil."

The   busy   mother  does uot  care to lie bothered- by her children's help,  or questions. They linvo nothing to employ  them, and, as a consequence, quarrels and  hard   words   are' frequent. ' The   mother,  intending to  remedy   this, promptly boxes'"  their ears   and   senda   them  out   to play.   > '  Next tune they are together the same thing  happens.      Such a thing]  as performing a  task with quiet and ease is utterly foreign  to any child in that family, and   one feels  greatly relieved   upon leaving the   house.  The   children   are   good 'naturally,    but  mischievous like most of them, and,having"  no training and nothing to do,  -they'fall  into alb sorts of plights, for .which they are  shipped or cuffed ,iu a haphazard   manner,  aud, o'f course, consider getting out-of-the-  way or dodging tho  threatening hand as a  huge joke.     , . l   -  Contrast the,* two families. Certainly  when respect is shown children they can  be little ludies .and gentlemen. In one ,  family judgment is used in their training;  they are quietly reasoned with, when in the  wrong, and the whys and wherefores the  explained. In the other no moro respect  is shown them than would be uiven a loi  of little puppies. i\o doubt one mother "  loves her children as well'as'the other, but  one has solved the , problem of training  childron'propei-ly and  the other,has not.  Children, like everything else in this  world, grow as they are trained. Let them  have certain houis for work bet'oro and  after school, and plenty of play, and teach ' '  them in useful lines aud they" will be in.  terested iu what they do.  lure closes up and throws him upon tbo  door.
