The report is dated rteptemher ' 5ih,  and it has taken exactly two^months  lo iea:h the capital. ConsEantine'.s  previous ci mnruiication wns a hiief  note dated Joly( 27th, or three days  after he nn 1 his riieii arrived at Fort  Cudahy.

The-pblice post i-s located  'at the junction of Forty-Mile creek,  with, the Yukon river.. The whole  country theieabouts is coveie'l 'wilh  dense moss, ranging froth five to ten  feet in thickness, and when this is  cleared away ground is struck. The  earth where covered is frozen solid the.  year round. Constantino, says tin-  winter quarters will be completed by  the end of September. Meantime all  stores have boon safely housed and  protected. American lep-n'ts about  the cons) ruction of forts and stockades  he characterizes as simply p'-pl'V cock.

Vancouver, Victoria and Nelson.- Tlie  visiL of the British Columbia horud of  trade to tho Kootenay was for the  exju-ess purpose of establishing trade  relations. It will be a dillicult thing  for- Victoria or Vancouver to wrest  the trade from Sjiok.ine. , Many  articles both in dry goods and _ groceries must be purchased in the ���������LTuM.od  States, pay a duty, then be. shijip'ed to  the coast and back again to the Kootenay ; while Spokane, right under _ the  border and only a shoit distance Irom  the .scene of the greatest activity in  British Columbia", can' successfully  compete with the Vniioouvermercliant.

LOCAL MINING NEWS.  Items of Interest From Camps in the  Revelstoke Division,  Capt. .Tolln Grant was in town Wed- '  nesday. He seems very well pleased  with the progress made at the Maple  Leaf, Illeeillewaet, where he lias been '  superintending operations, and ha*  just let a contract for200 feet of tunnelling. A force of men will be at work  throughout the winter but their effort*  will be confined, entirely to development work. Nn effort will be made tu  .-hip nre until the proponed tramway,  antl concealrator are put in. Tlie  eaptaiii has visited the new tindi, on  tin: north fork of the 'Illeeillewaet  recently a ml i.s very enthusiastic about  I lioni, speaking in lhe highest' terms  not onlyof the mineral but. also of the  lay of the country which is comparatively level. They had eighty horses  with the party ami packed, nut over  2C0"poimd& of samples wliich have been  forwarded to Vancouver for a 'mill  test. The assays received heretofore  from these finds gave $5.30 in gold and  over lOO'o/.. in silver per ton,-, besides  which there is eveiy indication of very  large ore bodies, all of which lias helped to convince the captain that the  north fork will be a great producer,  probably the greatest in the country.  IS. L. Kidman came in from Trent  Lake Thursday ' He has been at  work ou the ;American, of which  he .is one of ,the. owners, and  will put in the wintei there. They  will woik six or eight men all winter  aiid expect to have the distinction of  being the iirst to ship ore. from tlie  Troiit lake district., They will commence shipping as soon as the. weather  permits of rawhiding over the trail  recently completed, and count on  delivering from 80 to 100'' tons at  Tacoma this winter.

Bedrock had not been reached when they left the Park mine last  Sunday and there is a probability that  work will be suspended for the winter  as no provision has been made for  winter working,and thecfrost is beginning lo interfere- with the., operations. ,  Mr. Parks has followed the fortunes of  this claim for two years now and seems  jusUis confident of success as ever. He'  says'enough gold has been taken out  of the shaft, which is' now -down, to  convince him that there is something  good there if it can be reached, though  the depth, of 'the working has been  somewhat of a disappointment to him.  Tom Downs and YCharlie llolden '  'came up from Tiout Lake this week.  It is said that they are negotiating a  transfer' of the Silver- Cup. This is one  of the highest grade propositions m the  Trout Lake district.' Win. Dixon has  been examining the claim for the  prospective purchaser who is said to tie,  Dan   McGillivray.  Kvery one who comes up from Trout  lake is enthusiastic ''about the  prospects of tlie camp. They look for  a ru-h in there next summer and feel  conlident it will occur. Claim owners  are doing more work on. their properties than at any time previously.  ��������� Home's ,ho'at returned from the  Bend to-day.

The Sketch, published lu-London, Jllng-
laud, bus this interesting account of the
Bank of England paper nulls. They are
located four miles from Micheldever aud
are called "Laverstolte Mills," orecied by
Heury ��� Portal - m 1719 and re-built by
Wyndham Poital iu 18S1. ' ��� ���
In the " first process room" aro sacks
filled with snips of linen one or two inches
long. The finer quality is for the Bank of
England notes, the coarser for tlie rupees,
dividend warrants, postal orderB, and Bank
of Ireland noies. The linen is soaked for
three-und'a half hours, until the fibres
separate, and they are then ftorn into
atoms by toothed rollers revolving at
eiionnous speed'ou a toughed plate. When
the proper consistency has been obtained,
this mixture flows below to the "rvat-
room. Beneath two men are standmg(
one at tbe head, the other at the left-hand
side of 11 vat full of this linen in pulp. The
man at tho head is cab'ed the " vat man,"
the one on tho left the " coacher." The
former holds in both hands a frame marvol"
ously wired, outlined in accordance with
tho famed f" water-mark." He clasps' the
������rame' in a square wooden band, and dips
tlie'' whole of it in the pulpy mass. On
withdrawing it, he shakes it to and iro to
allow the superfluous water to pass away,
and ,to secure equality of distribution.
He then lays tho frame on the side of the
vat, and slides it towaids the" corichor,"
which lays it faco downwards on a bo<*rd
flannel Btieet; another sheet covers it.
n   ' 1
Layers of these notes aud flannels are
subjected to extreme pressure, which expels
the water and knits the fibre, firmly together.    Each sheet is ' then laid   upon  a
broad,en'dless flannel bandrevolvingslowly
under and over hot rollers, at tho farthoi
end ofwhich they aro collected,tough, crisp
and rustling.
'; At, every step of the process each scrap of
paper is checked by .' automatic registers
aud tho total must agree 111 each room before
the notes leave it. After the p.ipur is
"sized" it is conveyed to the drying room.
In this room- iho notes ate counted, by
girls, if correctly done the pay is three-
halfpence for 500. ' '
In another room the .notes are counted
with a rapidity that'is bewildering. A
comer is cut oil each live pound'note : iu
the case of a ten pound note tho corners
aro intact, but there is a notch near the
left-hand top corner. - Notches appear in
all remaining valucB up to the ��1,000 notes,
appearing lower and lower down the side
as the values increase. Thus it is'possible*
to tell by the edge exactly the value of the
paper you are dealing with.
' l        THE WAT 1511 MARKING.
a Held up to,the light, tho water-marking
was a very marvellous sight. Oii"tiie
ordinary nolo, passing from hand to hand,
tlio water-marking, though plain enough,
is yet bidden to somo extent by the printing
on its face. With tho.paper absolutely
clear, one appreciates the impossibility of
attaining even an approximate imitation,
of the result which one achieves so readily
with the coveted framo in one's hands.
Rupee, dividend warrants 'and bank of
Ireland paper are also made here. The
curious feature of the latter is the absence
of any water-marking. There is the plain
announcement, "Bank of Ireland," but
beyond that, nothing. Tho mission of so
distinctive a' feature, does uot seem to
encourage forgery. Tho annals of the bank
are,1* on the contrary, exceptionally free
from this form of fraud.
The weight of the Irish note is much
heavier than the English typo, aa is also
the rupee. The five-pound note, imprinted,
weighs some 16 1-2 grains; when srze'd,
primed and complete, 3 1-2 grains more.
The machine by which the notes are
weighed is as nearly human as anything
can be. Tho feeder places the nolo on a
winging balance. If the note be of the correct, weight, tho tray containing it tilts at
such an anglo as to drop it into a tray' beneath. On tbo passago, the _ reinlt is
registered iu a concealed indicator. Should
it piovo too light or too heavy, jt is placed
in oilier compartments. If, by airy inis-
chaucc.thc feeder should fail to place a note
on tho tray, as it swings., toward him, a. bell
rings, to denote that the indicator does not
record this omission. Tho accuracy, with
which, at tho outsot of the process, the
vatinan controls hiH materials, may be
judged from the fact that the nitmbor of
'notes rejected on riooouiitof their weight is
simply fractional compared with those
which satisfy this test.
All around an iron-eased room, somo ten
foot square, wore piled, liked so many
packets of stationery, iioIch labelled up to
CI,000, awaiting their call, to Thread,

before their journey to town. Two men, at
least, accompany llii'in. and they arc, of
course, nrmcil., At tna bank they aro
printed and numbered. Three thousaud
two hundred notes per hour is its output,
and a tent of thit icon years at the bank has
failed to suggest in what more hii' isfactory
way this could othorwiso be accomplished,

safe-room, to which place, at night, everything is taken.
In the postal-order room, 7'2 reams are
turned out each working'day. In this
building, some sixty feet long, th"�� whole
process, very similar' to 'that uf note-
making, is initiated, continued and 2on-
In the cistern which holds the pulp, a
moderator controls its flow as it passes
along a broad metal bed to the first roller.
This revolves just oil' the metal sheet and
compres-ses the pulp into eomethmg like
solidity. A second roller impresses the
marking and value. It then passes up and
over a | hot, metal cylinder; which halts
every few seconds for a small sizmg-band
to descend aud touch the paper. On the
far side cf the roller it is cut iuto sheets
holding four complete postal orders. These
fall, two by two every moment of the day,
into compartments fitted for their reception.
A Children's Paradise.
Travelers are fond of calling Japan tlio
children's paradise. This perhaps cornea
from the fact that Japanese children never
cry. Maybe this is an exaggeration because crying is tho only way m which any
kind of,a baby can express its feeling*)..But -*
if it ib not ,an_exaggeration, then it seoma
the country whore' this happy state of
affairs exists should be called a paradise
for grown people quite as appropriately as
one for children. e
Tim Japanese babies arc born with a
smile on their faces and really, can't help
always wearing that same smile, just as
they can't help tho i-hapo of their fs-ces.
John A. Cockerill has been,, visiting
Japan, and he says, after telling about the
many holidays in that country, tnat there-
is no rudeness nor boistcrousness in 'the
holiday boy of Japan. He is full 'of life
and bounce, but hoodlumism is not known
in Japan. He spends his pennies fjr nuts
and mysterious sweetmeats like other boys
anil takes his fun in the'' mo-it rational
manner. ,', ' > ��  ���
Hc'is less boisterous and less robust than
our Canadian boy, but his amusement resources are apparently hh great., .There ia
no prettier sight than' a group of joyful
Japanese children at play. It is pure sport
without the slightest rudeness. ' ''
rMr.  Cockerill says he never saw aii ox- ,
h.bition of viciousuetrs among the children.
The.deference shown to their olders on   all  '
occasions is  simply   beautiful,    Rich   aud
poor children seem to mingle logotSter. in
Surely little Canadians might learn a
lefson or two of these little Jnps !
There are two days in the yerv which
aro totally grven up to lhe children iu
Japan. The first day all tho doll shops in
all the largo-cittes���Tokio, Kioto, Yoko- ���
hama���aro gay ly bedecked with .viiat are
called uiniv sama���tiny . models of both
people and things!' tho Whole Japanese
court in minittlure.
Dolls of  every   conceiviiblo   style   and
variety seem to fill the landscape.    This'is -
the gieat holiday for little girls.    ���
, All small feminine children in Japan are
eutitlod to  wear  as   gaudy colors as their
paronre a.o able to secure,    As they grow
older ibeir   dress grows moie sedate, until
by the  time tho age of 10 is loachod they
have a costume   graded ofl 1 to sober gray
kitnaraa or  pleasing   Bhades of blue   and  ,
pink.    A  little, girl  carrying   olr"   a   half   ,
dozen fiercely bright colors  is not an unusual -sight,   espociully    on   the   holiday
assigned   to their,sex.    On   this   day   the   "'
streets are  bright   with  swarms   of girls
attired in tlio  gaudiest raiiuont, with hair
dressed in the most fantastic shapes.
On the flih of May tho boys havo 1 hei:
holiday. Thoy own the country then.
Kvery house has a gay pole of bamboo,
from which floats one'or moto'gaudy fish
made of tough paper. The wind blows
into tho momlm of these fish and inflates
them. They float and writhe and wriggle
in u most natural way. i-Soino of them
are of enormous longtb. These fish are
supposed to represent carp, and the idea is
that, as carp swim"iip the river against the
most obstructive currents, so may a sturdy
boy swim in life'B current and achieve fame
and fortune. This linson is well taught.
As is the'number of boys in the-household
so is the number of paper fish on tho polo
n front thereof.    '
The boys aro great kite flyers, too, about
this   time.      Thoy build them of   bamboo
sticks  and   the strong   fiber ed   paper  for
which Japan is celebrated.    Thoy 1110 enor-   ���
mous in srzu and lho boys send  them up a >
half a mile or so.

The Royal Humane Society of England,
formed in 1774 by thirty-two persons, has
continued to grow and ^flourish   until the
present   day   it3   medals    aud   honorary
awards are as much prized in civil life as is
the Victoria Cross in military annals.
���',    No less than 720 awaids were made in
1803, viz.': 1 gold medal, 11 silver medals,
190. bronze medals,-'6 bronze   clasps,   335
testimonials on vellum, 123 testimonials on
parchment, and 5- pecuniary rewards with
certificates.     In    addition   to,these   "in
memonam" testimonials were forwarded to
-".the relatives   of   persons   who   lost tneir
lives in attempting   to   save others.     Of
' these 4S2 occurred in England and Wales,
64 in Ireland,,.32 in Scotland,  10 in India,
31 in the British Colonies, and'll in foreign
countries.      , -   -

,   canals, and on  the shores of  everyvconsid-

apparatus of the   Royal Humane  ."Society,
��� consisting of   ladders, ropes,   life-buoys,
drags'and  grapplrrig irons,   with   persons
specialty instructed   in' their  use and in
the reviving of those apparently drowned.
'There are over three hundred such stations
in and around London alone.
\   Scarcely a day passes without witnessing
, some deed of heroism m life-saving in some
quarter of'the world-wide British Empire'.
Here are a few- recent incidents culled at
random, the heroes and heroines of which
were rewarded with medals.
The'steamship Pesiiawur was 'on her
���voyage from Aden to.Suez.steammg eleven
and a half knots an hour, iu a strong head
wind and a moderately high sea, when' a
Lascar fell overboard. Capt. 8. W. Dickeri6,
a p-issenger, at once jumped overboard io
the rescue of the man.' After .securing a
liie-buoy, subsequently' thrown,, ho swam
with it to the Lascar,- audi with his help
supported the man above water for seventeen minutes until picked up by a boat.
'They were then one and a half miles from
, tho ship. Tbe silver medal was unanimously voted lo Capt. Dickens, to which was
added later the Stanhope Gold Medal,
awarded by the General Court.
* ,    t
John R. Patcheli was skating with a
party of ladies on Simmon's Lake,Duugan-
non,-Ireland. The ice gave way aud Mr.
Patcheli became immensed in twenty foet
of'water 150 yards from shore. He remain-
���ed 'uudcr the ice for a short time, iind
finally succeeded in breaking it above him,
, but could only keep his head above water,
. as in every ellort he made to assist himself
by leaning on the ice it gave way. (
Miss Margaret Long courageously skated
up to ihe edge of tho hole, threw herself
flat on the ice and,after undoing her cloak,
handed the end of it to Mr. Patcheli. She
managed to retain hold of the other end of
the garment, and thus kept him above
water until help arrived. '��� The silver medal
waa awarded to Mis>s Long aud bronze
medals to Messrs. Smith and Hart, who
rendered gallant assistance.
A soldier named Burton was bathinc iu
the Ji.Vor Ravi", at Shfthpur, Punjab. 'Ho
appears lo have got into ,a whirlpool aud
'was being carried under by the current
when Private Charles Summerfiold plunged
iu to his assistance aud seized hold of him.
He, however failed to rescue him, as the
current carried them both under,water,
and to save his own life he waa obliged to
.relinquish his grasp and Burton was di owned. The river at this place is ten foet deep
close to the banks and dangerous. Summer,
field risked his own lifo in the attempt for
whioh he reooived the silver medal of the
' sooioty. , ' >
to his friends on tbe shore, but found it too
short for his purpose. He then returned
to the boat with a knife, dived under it,
ond detached o sufficient length of line,
-vhich he brought to the shore, leaving one
end at the boat. By his direotion each
man seized hold of the rope, aud supported
by McDougall gaine'd ' the shore, thus all
were successfully rescued. , A silver medal,
was awarded. <
, At Kinnaird Head, Fraserburgh, a lad of
nine years of age fell over a perpendicular
cliff into the sea." Alexandei Park's attention was called to the accident; he descended the face of the rock~at great personal risk, clinging to tufts of grass, aud
getting within ten feet of 'the water,
plunged in with all his clothes on, seized
hold of tho boy, and attempted to swim
with him a distance of forty yards to a
landing place ; he, however, became exhausted after swimming twenty yards, and
was obliged to cling to the foot of the cliff,
supporting the boy with one hand. * Iu
this position they were helped to the shore
by two fishermen. '
A Sepoy jumped down a well at Smgor,
India, probably with a view to committing
suicide. Lieut. P. G. Griffin descended by
means'of the rope a distance of fifty feet,
aud dropped a distance of six feet into the
water, fio't finding the man, he dived and
brought the man up from the bottom of the
water, which was ten feet deep. A lantern
was now lowered to the' lieutenant, and
eventually botu men were drawn to iho
puiface. But owingto a jerk being given
to the rope securing tho insensible Sepoy
the man's body slipped from its fastening
and again fell into the.well. Griffin descended a socond time, 'secured the man's
body more effectually, when it was drawn
to the surface, but too late for resuscitation.
The risk in tliis cise-was twofold ; there
was'"danger in trusting to tho well-rope,
which may havebeen of insufficient strength
to sustain a man's weight; and a possible
risk from the bite of a cobra, as that snako
is known to trequent the spaces between
the rough stones forming the sides of a
well. So no one grudged Lieut. Griffin'
the silver modal, which was unanimously
awarded. ���        '.    '    '
Henry Arthur Cooke,' the' British Vice-
Consul at Archangel,,Russia,' was proceed,
ing' across the Whito Sen in a passenger
steamer when he ''saw a man deliberately
jump overboard. Without'any hesitation
Cooke jumped afrer him and supported him
for three.-quartera of an hour before a boat
came to pick them up. The.rescued man
was sulTering from delirium trenions/which
added vary t much to'the personal risk'
incurred by Mr. Oooko iu eti'ecting the
rescue. , This exploit called forth aii award
of the silver medal.   Y
The Stanhope gold medal is awarded
only by the General Court for the best
silver medal case exhibiting the greatost
gallantry 'during tho year. t Next 'is the
sliver medal, awarded'for gallantly saving
life from drowning'or from asphyxia in
mines, wells, etc., under circumstances of
very great danger and risk to the salvor or
salvors. -The bronze medal is awarded for
courage and promptitude' iu saving life
from .drowning or asphyxia under circumstances of danger and ' personal risk.
Testimonials on vellum are bestowed for
assisting in saving life from drowning, etc.,
it somo personal risk. Testimonials on
parchment for promptitude in saving life
from drowning where the risk to tbe salvor
was inconsiderable. Undor certain circumstances pecuniary awards are given in lieu
of the foregoing. - '"
Unsuccessful attempts iti saving life from
drowning are-considered and awards given
ou the merits of tho case. In cases where
the salvor loses his life in attempting to
rescue, '-' in men.oriaru testimonials" are
sent by the committee to the nearest iclative
of the salvor. , A special, nieclal for unsuccessful attempts is sometimes given. ^
Two of Her Majesty's ships, the Philomel
and lhe Widgeon, were anohorcd ofl'Zmzi-
bar. About 'S.30 p.m. e, boat from the
latter came alongside tho Philomel having
for its occupants two men, one of  whom,
" P.trick Kenny, when standing up in the
boat, lost his balance and foil over the stern
into the water. Charles J. Perry, who was
doing duty'as corpoial of the gangway,
looked over the side and saw something
white diifting astern and was lold that a
mau had fallen overboard. Without waiting to divest himself of any clothing he
jumped overboard and endeavored to reach
,' the man, who was sinking under the ship's
counter. ' ���
'At ihe first attempt he was not, successful, but ou diving a second time he reached
tbe man and brought him lo tho surface,
then swam with him to lhe1 gangway, supporting him until a tope was passed,which
he fastened around Kenny, who was then
hoisted on board. The danger incut-red in

Diplomatically speaking, that potentate
of the moment, the Lord Mayor of London,
seems to have made a fiasco of his late excursion to Paris. He niadd a great impression on the Parisians with his golden
state coach and powdered footmen, but he
overstepped the mark when he went the
length of extending au"invitation to the
French , President to visit London. In
responding M. Faiire intimated that "it
was not tho like of Him to talk to the
likes of me" about visiting England, but
an invitation coming from the proper
source would be duly considered. In
commenting on Sir, Joseph's little break,
a London contemporary suggests that if
the Frencn baud liad played "'13 Duniio
Where'E Are1' as the Lord Mayor entered, tho Gare St. Lazare instead of the
national hymn it would have been a far
more-appropriate anthem. '   ,' ,.
The work on the coronation robe of the
Czarina of Russia has r been'going on for
months ; it is ,to cost the incredible sum
of ��200,000. Pearla and goldj worked in
the most modern scientific manner, are to
decorate the'-dress worn by Her Imperial
Majesty, Alexandra Feodorovna, ou���the
occasion of .her1, coronation. ' The dress
is .being made in PariB,, where the decora-
tians were also prepared. The coronation
robe of the last Empress of Russia was
white,' studded with the most gorgeous
and finest jewels. 'Her Majesty also wore
a mantle of burnished'silver and ermine
and a crown of di&mouds. It is customary
for the "Holy Cziir," as he is known in
the ritual of the Russian Church,, to be
crowned iu his army uniform. On this
occasion he carries1'' the .golden sceptre,
ornamented with diamonds. Thediamondr

Constantinople siuce he ascended the throno
under such tragic ��� circumstances, twenty
years ago. And His Holiness bus remained
within the precincts of the Vatican since
the triple^iara' was placed upon his head in
1S7S. If the Pontiff vvill not leave his'self-
imposed confinement, it is because he feels
that in leaving the Vatican his, departure
would be construed by the world at large
as an acquiescence on the part of the Papacy
his family in a state of anxiety lest he
make a mesalliance, and a marriage with
one of tne' Queen's granddaughters would
be highly satisfactory to the conservative
Danish coutr. During the last few years
the Princess Maud's name had been coupled
matrimonially with every marriageable
prince in Europe. Even the melancholy
eyes of the Snahzada were reported as
turning admiring glances in'her direction.
Several members of the English nobility
were also discussed as probable husbands
tor Frinces-s Maud. The Queen, it is said,
is highly opposed to another royalty-
commoner marriage, on '.the ground that
the commoner may have all sorts'of impossible relations. .The Argyll family, into
which the Queen's daughter married, has
"all sorts of queer connections in Scotland,
and the same thing is also true of the Duffs.
In fact, the Duke of Argyll's daughter, the
Lady Victoria, is reporled as engaged to
the Rev. Jonn McNeill, who was a railway
porter before he took holy orders.

The question of a deep waterway to the
sea, a channel enabling ocean vessels to
penetrate to the upper lake ports, has been
thoroughly and ably discussed at the Cleveland conference. One of the results of the
discussion is the development of the fact
that New York city is exceedingly anxious
to become' the Atlantic terminus. .New
York is prepared for a large scheme ; its
representatives think tho project is practicable, and that it ought to be entered into,
But the New York proposal means'that
some ��200,000,000 shall be expended 'in
the utilization of the' Erie canal and its
feeders. The people who are to provide
the ��200,000,000 are the owners of tho Erie
namely, the residents of New York State.
It is a question whether the Erie could be
dredged to the required depth. It ia a long
canal, and the problem* of feeding it with
water is one of moment. ' If, rendered
navigable, it is doubtful that ocean vessels
could use it. Progress' would necessarily
be alow, an<1__t.hn_.oost of such navigation
would be enormous. In addition to this.it
ia to be doubted that the relatively small
vessels which are using the canal- could
continue the ocean trade.,, This is an
'  BRA   OF LA1W1B  VESSELS       ��y
and the size is constantly growing. The
Liverpool Mercury reports the movements
of the steamship Georgic, of the White
Star line. Speaking of its cargo, the Mercury-says: The shipment' oi live and
drcBsed stock did hot take up all^ the room
that can beollowed for that sort'of freight,
and there was ample space on board for
many tonB of manufactured and miscellaneous goods after slowing away the following enormous entries of her freight libt.
Now note the cargo :���750 head* of cattle ;
9,000 sheep ; 3,000 quarters of beef ; 136,-
000 bushels of wheat; 00,000 bushels of
corn ; 550 bales of cotton; 2,000 sackB of
flour ;' 1,800 bags of oilcake'; 1.S00 cases of
oatmeal; 1,700 boxes ol bacon ; MOO barrels
and tierces of provisions ; 9,000 packages
of lard ; 3,9(10 barrels of rosin-; 700 barrels
of glucose ; 1,000 cases of canned goods ;
300'packages of soap ; 400 barrels of wax ;
300 barrels of bark extract ; 1,000 barrels
of lubricating oil ; 100 tons of wood ; 3,0'00
packageB of acetate of lime ; 150 barrels of
oxide of zinc ; and 10,000 packages of cooperage Btock. This is the type of;, vessel
that is to carry freight in the future
and the idea of it navigating' the Erie
canal "is scarcely reasonable. But thero
may be a chance for the smaller ocean
grain-carrying vessels in the lakes provided
that, the means of approach and exit offer
few obstructions, and that progress can be
made at
Fattening Fowls.
, Fowls which are ,to be fattened  for tho
November market, if  not  already' in the
ments of a dairy cow which gives a large
amount of rnilk. Do not allow her to
shiink in milk from this cause but supplement the 'failing jiiitu're with more grain,
a little clover hay, aud whatever will '
stimulate her to full performance.
When the cold nights con:e put,the cowa
fattening coops, should be placed theie at I in, the stable, give them a good bed and
once- ' j make them as comfortable as possible.    It
The coops should be clean, well ventilated, and large enough lo allow the birds a
little exercise; in short,1'they shouldnbe
comfortable. Nothing is gained, and there
will be a decided loss if the fowls are not
comfortable. The coops must not be damp,
and the fowls should'not be. exposed to
draughts. ' ' <
Fresh, pure,' clean water should be kept
within reach at all'times ; also plenty of
sharp grit. The' feeding should be done
at the same hours each - day. All' stock
will thrive better if fed regularly.
The fattening process should not be
begun abruptly. If gorged with food at
first, especially if the food has been given
sparingly before this, it has a tendency to
derange the digestive organs, and cause
lack of appetite^ if not more serious difficulties. If the bird has been fed liberally
for some time before il is put iu the fattening pen there is less danger; but even iu that
case judgment is required in feeding for
tho firat lew days. The quantity of food
given should be gradually increased until
it has all it will eat at least three times a
day and even four times is better.
"Food should ,not bo kept constantly
before the fowls. They lose the appetite
for it almost as quickly as a human being
would under the same circumstances. The
food should be varied,and should be changed when they seem to tire of any one kind.
Ground grains moistened with sweet milk
may be given through the day, with whole
or cracked corn, or corn and peas at'night
for t e'last feed.' A littlo green food helps
the digestion and aids as a r.e'rsh.
If ���yery rapid fattening is required, give
will pay every time. Nd animal can be at
its best which suffers from cold, a lack'of
good, nutritious food, or good care generally.    ���
ground rice, well scalded, or whole rice,
cooked and sweeleueu with coarse sugar ;
or corn meal 9calded with milk and sweetened. Damaged rice may1 often bo bought
very cheaply. The moistened food should
not be made sloppy; it should be moistened
or wetted sufficiently to stick together.
For such a vessel, the best accommodation
that can'bo procured-is by way of the St.
Lawrence  and   t.he St.  ^Lawrence canals.
Here    there is  a short  stretch   of   canal
navigation and a long stretch of river and
lake navigation.,   But the  deepening will
be a very expensive work, and it is idle to
suppose that an enterprise   which  wiil be
of as much service to the United States as
to Canada will be undertaken at the cost
and charge of tho people of this Dominion-
Assuming that it is practical and  useful,
our'neighbours muss join in the   expense.
Mr.  Oliver A.   Howland, who   has   given
thought to  the question,is evidently ot the
opinion that United States co-operation is
essenlial to success.    Hence his advocacy
of the BVBtem of  international   arbitration
for the   settlemeut of  all   questions* that
arise   between   the   two   countries   as   a
preliminary step.    The  subject is a  large
oni, and it requires great care   aud * forethought before anything is done definitely
wilh rogard to it.    Cfrtainly tho pros and
cons 'ought   to    bo   considered    well   in

And yet this is tiie experience of factories
reported, who had demanded that all milk
to be delivered, shall, aa soon as milked, be
aerated and cooled before beiug sent. In
one factory a Ioes oi 2 cents a pound on all
clieeEe, made bj inferior quality and flavor
was recovered, and the cheese sold after
with -the best, followed the rule of, every
patron night and morning aerating the milk
and cooling,, to a certain degree before
placing on the factory wagon? In quite a-
number of,factories this seisou where this
rule is beiuc mandatory,'there has been not
only a noticeable improvement iu the quality oi tne butter made, but an increase in
amount, i.e., the milk creamed better, and
the churn did more perfect work. '
In this season, where a little helps, even
if but for a little, this matter of improved
qualities for dairy produce should not be
lost sight ol,^and it is a time when such
education pays, and in coming days of
piospenty the lesson will' be none the loss
valuable because learned now aud practiced
, Along this line there is a matter of great
improvement that seems to be neglected
upon the part of the palroua in auo
manner. ' It eeems tho rule that tho cheap
er a mnu'eau be hired to run a concern the
better.it suits, and cheap help is too ofteu
the'rule, aud is doubly expensive because
of wastes aud losses that, result every
Then again, a large per cent, of theso
employes donotcare a cent how their work
,is done so that they get their pay. They
never try by bolter ways and improved
methods to make themselves iudispcusablo
to the patrons. They never try io stop
leaks,skim closer,churn more exhaustively,
and granulate the butler more perfectly,
but rather not know about these things
because it'makes them more work.    -
Thero is a placo for the '.'coming" factory manager, and it is possible that tho
graduate of the dairy school with tests,
scalca, aerators, starters and No. 41's may
raise tho standard of excellence in our
dairy produce factories, but the patron
mrtrit also lie a willing student, and work
those aerators, coolers and double strainers
and keep clean arables and cleaner cows,
to enable this fellow lo make the finer
chi-ose and more fancy butler.
Tho lesson is not for one, but for tho boy
tint drivei tho cows, to the ��� man who
stands' between tbe factory and tho con>,
sinner. - It's along the whole Hue of operation.
