'Mr. Ogilvie's calculations of the  locations of the 141st meridian were,  too far west bv just those distances.  This upsets the theory which ' has  hitherto been advanced by uilieii'ls of  the coiist and geodetic survey that the  mouth of .Forty Mile Creek was in  jAlaska. The data for the establishment of the facts'have been in the'  possession of the United States\ coast  and geodetic survey for several years,  but it was not until the State department made insurgent call ar few days  ago for definite information on' the  subject that the computations of , the  siu-veyor were finally worked out.  '���������One of the ��������� principal points over  which' there has been controversy, and  which is now settled, is as to 'the  ownership of the growing town of  Forty Mile City, which is siti.a'ed at  the mouth of,Forty Mile Creek, where  it empties into the Yukon river:, This  settlement, which has, in summer a  | population of between 1,200 and 1,500  {���������inhabitants, and is variously known as  Engineers will Resist a Reduction.  Worcl comes from Toronto that the  delegates of the Brotherhood of  Locomotive Engineers are drawing up  a new scale of wages for the C.P.ll. as  the present agreement with that i*oad  expires in December. The organization  is an international one covering all  railroads in America and < is probably  the strongest trades union on this  continent. The despatch 'announces  that some doubts exist as to whether  the1 company ' will accept the new  agreement, as a rumor current along  the. road has it that wages are to be  reduced. Any attempt sit reduction  will be resisted, and before a schedule  to suit all parties is drawn there may  be trouble. If there is it will be communicated to a'l lines co-operating  with the C.P.ll. by the International  Union, a very, wealthy organization,  which will support the men in their  demands.  s variously  Springs for lIn? accniiunoclatinn of trui'sts.-!

"Within the interveninij;  country several placer gulrl diggings  are also on the Canadinn , side of the  line, hub the principal gold mines, and  those which arc now proving to be the  ' most productive and valuable, are just  as clearly situated within''the territory,  of the United States.  " Mr. Ogilvie, made his calculations |  as to the points lit which the 141st  meridian, which is the. boundary line,  crosses the Yukon ,and tForty Mile  creek solely by astronomical observations. The "United States surveyors  used both the sextant and tlie theodolite, and sis the result of both calculations-was'the same they may be accepted as correct.  "The mouth of Forty Mile creek is  '22i miles from the true boundary line  following the windings of (.he creek,  and 1G miles from tlvs bounc'ary in an  air line. The determination of these  points by the United States government' will not relieve it from the  necessity of .securing a joint commission for making a complete survey  of the1141st meridian from 'a point  where it crosses Mount St. Elias in  the south clear, to the Arctic ocean at  the north, and the erection of suitable  boundary marks along the whole  distanco, wherever it is practicable."  Narrow Gauge to the Trail Smelter.  Surveys are being made for-a narrow  gauge railroad to run from the mines  about llossland to the smelter at  Trail. Tt is proposed to run branches  from the main line of the , proposed  road to the dumps of all the principal  minus. Owing to the curves the main  line will lie about twice , the distance  between Rosslund and the Trail  smelter and the maximum gra. e will  be four per cent.

In  1893 the plaintiff entered intou contract  with   "the   defendant   and   others   to   ,  prospect for mineral.    His whole time  was to he spent- in   their*  service   for  which he was to receive $100 a  ii'until  besides a one-quarter interest in  whatever'   locations  he omighb iuake,   they   '  undertaking   to   perform, the   assessments. r The plainbitr's claim is ' for. an   ' ,  unpaid balance on.salary of $1.'12 and  furthei   sum   of   $000    for   'damages'   -  through neglect of defendant to   perforin assessments thereby causing him  a loss of any protit which  might have  accrued from  his quarter   interest   in  such claims.  /The   implied contention'  of the. defendant was that, while in his'    v,  employ,  plaintiff' recorded- a location  for an outside "patty,,  and;that   this  constituted'!!,'breach of contract.   The  plaintiff deposed   that he, hud  staked  and recorded three, mineral claims   for '  defendant���������two on   the  Duncan   and  one in Big Bend.    He admitted recording a claim  foi   an outside  party bub  had received no financial consideration,    ',  therefor and had no interest whatever  iu it, that ib   was   merely   an   act  of  courtesy on his part to a fellow  pros-1     >  pector. arid was not an unusual  thing  to do.

As one of t he partners   ���������  had not been ser ved,   whose evidence,  tin* defence alleged, was very' material  to them, the court allowed   the action   >���������'  to stand.

He hi (I troops oi visitors from London,  and n any  of tlie  families residing   in  tlie neighborhood helped to enliven his  evenings.      His day's were, spent in ir-  rirablc    inquiries    about  the arrangements" for dinner, or in solitary/wanderings across the weaid.  But as he had tired of the festivities  in London, he also grew weary of this  superficial  country     life.   It  was   not  country life; it was only the town and  -   the votaries of fashion carried into the  midst of green fields.     lie was glad to  see his--"guests; he <>vas still more glad  when 7 hey departed.      It was not  ex-  ' acily selfishness which  actuated  him;  it was sirnp'y I h it he had diverged from  llie course to which lie had becfriie accustomed, and had attempted to follow  another of which he kuew nothing.    He  began to think that a' lite oi pleasure  was  much   harder  than a  life of   real  work.     He had'spent his money freely;  the people who came to him were known  as   clever   people,   as   very   intellectual.  people, and ou the whole had been most  kind to him.

If any one is sick ho, upon proprili-  at.iob, at ouoe declares some person to no  the cause, and that person must either  confess himself a witch and promise to cease  working injury upon the patient or he is  put to death, The Indians are still in a  state of uttor barbarism, and hold' to"'lhe  old belief, "An eye for an eyo and a tooth  for a tooth." ��������� ^,  Upon the sister being charged with  sorcery,she was ut once brought before hor  brother and tho Shamau.

THEXlllVWAKJiKEU),     .        .i,  Tne board* 'appointed to consider tho  question of'emergency foods are sending in  their ieports, upon which final conclusions  1 will be based. The problem. is how to  make una food package of smail bulk which  shall render the fightini* man independent  of supply trains tor a short period in case  he is, wouuded'or cutoii with a'detaohmeut  from the main command.  ( ' "Experiments in tin's line arebeinginade  ,by ail tho gieat war powers,",said Major  WoodrutT. J"l"neyaretryiugeverything imaginable foi the purpose. Here, for example,  is an element' of ��������� the British emergeucy  ration. It looks like a dog biscuit, doesn't  it' Tht'ee ounces it weighs, aud it is four  inches square. It is composed simply of  whole wneat solidly compressed. A condensed loaf of biead you i might .call it.  The Kreuch have a new 'war bread,'which  is to replace hard-tank, lis ingredients are  a secret. When put iuto hot water or soup  it swells up like a sponge and is said to be  ��������� virtually the same as fresh bread.  "In future wars tiie aim will bo to furnish the troops with fresn articles of dietin  the field. Dried foods are only suitable as  emergency foods. Germany and France,  by. the help of cold storage, have perfected  arrangf-ments for shippiug fresh beaf to the  front by rail. -"-When practicable, fresh  i 'bread will be forwarded daily to the fighting lu^e. The French Government has con-  ��������� structed a number of bakeries on wheels  i'or use in campaigns���������waggons, that is to  say, containing ovens and all necessary appliances, so that bread may be made ou  tho march. *  HVACOKArED  ONIONS.     ,  > " For    emergeucy    rations ' evaporated  vegetables have boen tried,  but   not   with  ,great success.    They   are   not  nutritious  enough, and they do not keep well.  Hero  is a one-pound  can of evaporated  onions.  Smells strong enough doesn't it ?    It ought  to, inasmuch as it  represents ten  pounds  of fresh onions. . Iu the same way potatoes,  ,  carrots, turnips and cabbages are put up.  " Desiccated foods aro now  being produced on an enormous scale by many firms  in this country and abroad.    A good thing,  which we may adopt,   is   this ' desiccated  L.   beef. One ounce otitis equal to five ounces  ot   ordinary meat, because it is absolutely  w���������jer.free.    It is too hard to cut   with   a  '���������Cairo  without trouble, and 30 the soldier  'hops off a small hunk ot it.    He puts the  piece into a small machine like a collee-nnll  aud grinds   it up.    It' comes out   iu   fine  shavings, ready to be eaten on bread or  to  be used for soup stock,  " Beef   tea, used   as   a stimulant, is   a  ���������   good thing tor boldiors. For an emergeucy  ration it is put up in capsules,one of which  in ikes a cup.    Each   capsule contains tho  necessary  snasouing  r*nd costs  two cents.  Beef tea contains almost no nutriment, but  1 only the flavoring and stimulating qualities  of   the meat.    When a person is informed  that a tea'-poonful of   extract   represents  several pounds of beef, he infers that it is  equally nourishing.    The truth is that the  ' nourishment is ictt behind in the boiler.  A  human being will starve to   death   on    au  unlimited supply ot beef tea.  " The most important element of the  British iron ration ib peniiuican���������a preparation of beef, rat aad bait. It may bo  eaten without further cooking, or mado  into hash or soup by boiling ib with vegetables. It keeps sound for years, though  exposed ti air. With tho peniiuican goes  a can of tho samesi/o continuing a mixture  of cocoa and honey. 1  is a one-pdunl can of preserved meat, with  hard ������������������ bread and pea sausage. A biscuit  composed of meat and flour ha"? been tried  for the German army, but the soldiers  would not eat it. The biscuit was supposed  to furnish the fighting man with every thing  necessary for his physical support, water  excepted. ,   -  "Very likely some soldierawoaldnotput  up with the German 'ersbwur.-'.' Yet tnat  species of pea sauoage is said 10 have been  a leading cause of the [success of the  German arms iu the Franco-Prussian war.  Without it the troops could not have'  endured the tatigue. The sausage is made  or" pea-meal, fat aud bacon. It was devised  by a German cook, from whom the invention was purchased by the Government for  $25,000. Each sausage makes tvelve  plates of nutritious soup.  "Among other things under consideration are condense 1 soups. This little  packet, which looks somewhat like a bundle  of cigarettes, contains just three ounces ot  desiccated pea soup., You observe, it is so  compressed as to be quite hard. I break  it up and throw it into this saucepan. To  it I add one quart of water, and I place it  on a gas siove heie to boil. 'For flavoring,'  though it is not necessary, let us add a  small qiiantity,of these evaporated onions.  In the course of fifteen minutes I will oiler  you a plate of very excellent pea soup.  A'cON'nhXSKD   CLM*   01" TEA.'  (, . o '  , " What do you suppose this is ? It  looks' like'.a button, doesn't it? It is a  cup of tea condensed. All you have to do  is to drop it iuto a. cup ot" hot water and  stir it up. The sweetening is in tho button with the tea.1 No, the sweetening is  not sugar, but,a coal-tar product called  'saccharine,' which is more than two hundred times as swe<stas sugar? Thus the quantity added needs to be very small. Collee  is put up iu the same way, with saccharine,  as'well aa in a shape that looks like black  molasses. ,  " An iron ration is a short-weight and  highly ceucentrated diet, , intended to  cover only a brief period. It is not to be  used except when the regular food supply  cannot b'e, obtained. Supposing the army  supplies to be regularly furnished, the  fighting man ought to return from tho  campaign carrying in his haversack the  same emergency ration with which he  started out originally. ,MBut it may happen  .that his rpgimeut or brigaie is cut on  from the main body, and in that case the  emergency rations may be literal salvation.  Or he may be left wounded on a field of  battle, unable to obtain anything to eat  for days unless ho has it with him. During the recent war with China the Japanese ' found emergency rations a necessity  in active service, '  "It is high time, then',\ that our troops  should be provided with emergency rations.  One of the questions 'to be decided is  whether the ration shall be carried at the'  belt or in the haversack. '    -  Soldiers suffering from'hunger maybe  supplied with'small quantities of alum, a  pinch of which taken from time to time  contracts the stomach. Thus file organ,  not requiring so much to fill it, can get  aiong with less than the normal diet for'a  while without complaining."  SOME NOTABLE PEEfflS.

Blue ink was first made in London. *  The "lead" or" the pencils ordinarily used  is made of graphite.  , Pens are polished with emery powder^n'  a large revolving drum.1  "The" basis ot most indelible ink is tho  otdianry nitiate of silver.  "Lead pencils" are a misnomer.. There is  no lead'in their composition.  Alloys of iridium and osmium are now  very(geneially ueed to point gold pens.  The quill pens now used in England come  from Germany aud the Netherlands.  From 1S03 to 1S12 many attempts were  made to fasten metal   pointd to quill pens.  Printing ink is make of linseed oil, rosin,  soap aud lampblack or other coloring matter      '.   ' '  Graphite suitable for making lead peucils  is found in almost every country on the  globe. ' ;   *  For very minute wriling pens made from  ciow's quills have been found to do excellent  work. . '  The basis of old-fashioned lithographic  ink was lampblack,shellac, wax tallow and  soap.  It ia said that 1700 patents for the manufacture of ink have been taken out in Great  Britain.  lied ink was formerly made of a solution  of Brazil wood, combined with alum, tartar, water and gum.     r ,  After being cut, steel pens are annealed  and tempered with oil to insure great  sprmg'ness to the pens.  - The ancients, according to Pliny, made a  very excellent sympathetic ink, using new  milk as the basis.  Inexhaustible supplies of superior graphite, almost pure and eminently suited for  pencils, are'found in Siberia.  The glazing of pens, in some varieties  considered a most important operation, is  done with lac dissolved in naphtha. ,  After the invention of paper, goose quill  pens came into fashion. _ They are not  known to have been used before,  For several centuries an infusion of nut-  galls treated with sulpha'eof iron composed  the only known ink.  Modern ink* date from 1703, at which  time researches of Dr. Lewis and Rtbac.  court in the chemistry of ink began.  Many sympatheticinks have been invented, tho writing being brought out. or made  visible by the use of chemicals.  A stylus with split point, apparently for  the purpoao of writing with fluid ink, has  been found in an Egyptian tomb.  In the last century geese were raised in  Russia and Poland iu vast flocks almost entirely for tho sake of thoir quills.  The Egyptians used pencils of colored  chalk, and several of these ancient crayons  have been found in their tombs.  Reed pens, split at the end like quill  pens, ,have boen found in Egyptian tombs,  dating probably 2500 yearn betore Christ.

Mr. Joseph 'Wailey, hae just died of  pneumonia at the a^e of 83 years, forty of  winch he spent from time to time in jail.  Like agrandold-time monarch,hehad several  wives; at least seven are known to have  constituted his better half. , His family,  of course, was extremely numerous, but he  didn't bother himself much about looking  after them. He was born at Southampton  and commenced to , practice his profession  at the age of ten. He was then engaged  almost ^exclusively io the handkerchief  department, but he   progressed    rapidly,  Digging- and Storing: Potatoes.  "Tne lirat point 111 harvesting potatoes is  not to begin   100 early.    Thid  is esuecially  important if the potatoes are rotting, as is  the case in some large potato-growing sections this year.    .The  season nas'nowhere  been very  wet.    Tr.e rot u caused, as   it  very often  is, by blighting of the  ltaves.'  This prevents the  proper maturity of the  tubers.  The skin peels easily when handled  roughly,   as  potatoes must be in   digging.  When tliese bruised potatoes are piled in a  heap they heat quickly,  and a very alight  degree   of rot  iu a   single potato rapidly  spreads and contaminates the entire heap.  It ir not uncommon when potatoes begin to  rot slightly iii   the field that the inexpsr-  enced grower thinks it is  necessaiy lo do  (something to save ids crop,    So lie goes to  .work d ggiug thorn out and, bruising them  moio or less.     While hot weatnercontinues  this is  tho worst  thing he can   do. ' Tho  potato under such conditions, rots  almost  as readily when bruised'as an apple," says  the   American Cultivator.    "By the time  cooler weather has  Lome the skin, even or  blighted potatoes, will be hardened,so that  they will not bruise'mueh while being dug.  Tlioii wht'u they are taken out they should,  bf put in   heaps aud   covered lightly with  gram straw, using at first no eailh over it.  The   object   is^tc   continue!   the drying  process    until    the ,,skiu    ia   thoroughly  burdened.      It' is. an   excellent   plan, to  put   a ' few,lump3 ,of   quicklime   in   the  heaps witii tbe potatoes," The spore of potato fungus needs moisture for its development,, and   the   lime,    by absorbing   the  excess of moisture in   the potato, kills' the  fungua  that causes   the   lot.    Some goo i  farmers we know believe that the carbonic  acid'gas which the slaking lime develops,  will destroy the rot in auy stage, even after  it   has 'anackea  the   potato.     We   have  frequently seen  potatoes which luvu been  liined that ,v/avo rotten oil one eudj^vhile  the tot had dried up and ceased to bpici 1.

Yet as , a constant presider'at dinner  parties His Royal "Highness may tsfely'  be said ta be a very busy man. If the  Prince accepts an invitation to a dinner in  one place, he is bound to accept one from  another, aud in,his presence is invariably  soueht at every banquet or" any importance  in England it is probably not difficult to  understand why he chooses to spend so  much of his time abioad, out' of ihe reaoh  of tho insidious blandishments or" his would-  be entertainerd.

At last their   ������'cc!ces9ful  black  carriage leached one of the bridges spanning  the Basingstoke Canal,at paoh end of which  a sentry was posted.

The sentry pondered a  moment and then lepiied : "Ivo, sir; I  don't know ineself where they are, but if  you ask me chum he'll tell you,for he knows  all the pubs about here."  There is a very pt etty custom in the imperial family of Germany which dates from  time   immemorial.      On    tlio   birthday of  one of the loyal children the Empress goes  thiough the stock  of toys 'which hns been  accumulating since the child's last birthday  and sends all,except a tew special favorites  to the sick cinldren'in hospitals.    The present Kaiserin, who is the most motherly of  women, has- paid special   attention to this  custom, and on the occasiou  of little Princess Victoria I outse's  birthday,  which oc-'  cuired a few days ago, Her Majesty packed  with her own hands a large case of   dollies,  picture  books and   little dishes���������all  in   a  lair state   of preservation���������and  had them  sent "off   to the little sufferers,    The sick  children    are   always told who sends   the  presents,and in past years this has resulted  in the saving of some curious and interesting relics._   In   this way the  battered tin  soldiers which amused the childhood of old  Kaiser William have been saved from the  wreck of time.    A   hideous doll belonging  to Queen Louiae'of Prussia is also iu existence.  And ao Mrs. Langtry was not " greatly  benefited," after all, 'by the toilet soap  which she has persistently puffed for years,  since her written praises of ies merits was  the primary cause of her jewelB being  stolen.

Ouo  Sunday morning, while wandering through  Victoria Puik, he noticed a largo crowd  gathered around a staud from which a  colored man was preaching, 'lhe colored  man was Celeetin Edwardy. With the  old-time instinct of a pickpocket, Wailey  at first thought he would work the crowd,  but he simply worked hia way near enough  to tho preacher to be able'to listen to his  words ; and he did listen with tho greatest attention. He. became moved, and  tears ran down his cheeks. Then and  there he confessed his sins���������no small atiair.  Without speaking of his ephemeral transgressions, such as his seven' or eight  marriages, Wailey had amassed u fortune  of about ������100,000 by active practice iu all  the various nranchcb of his profession.  Upon the question of restitution linked  to his repentance the lecords are silent.  But ut all events he got religion, and got  it bad, as his pals used to say. He turned  preacher, and was considered one of the  most eloquent among the lurid orators of  the open-air religious meetings iu London.  He became ������b great a favorite among the  good and righteous as ho had been among  tho" bad aud ungodly.

Few of these labor-saving , implements in  potato harvesting cau be made'to do good  woik in a weedy field. Even if tl.oy get  the potatoes out of. the ground, it is an  extra expense to pick them up among a lot  of weeds. A gsod farmer once remarked  to us i hut saving labor in cultivating tho  potato crop made so much extra labor in  harvesting it, that it cost nearly as much  per acre, and more per-bushel,than a clean,  well-cultivated crop. If the potatoes aro  well down in the ground, it is sometimes  well to leave them until theie has been a  black frost to freeze an inch or so of surface soil before diggiug them. But it is  better to dig them betore wet weather has  eariied the rot spores down to the tubers.  The potato hai vested in dry weather only  needs loiue kept cool, and the rot will not  touch it. When the potatoes are taken in  wet it takes more time to dry them out.  They are besides a very difficult crop to  dispose of, as tno handling of wet potatoes  mixed with muddy soil and probably full or"  the germs ot rot, ia a disagroable job that  nobody likes to undei take."

THE KOOTENAY' MAIL.  ON TRIAL FOR -MURDER  At the Vancouver Assizes���������Farr Found  Guilty at Winnipeg-.  ".s.  Vancouver has been treated Jki a  sensation this week in the form of a  trial for murder. John Smith, a  resident of Reed Island, is alleged to  have murdered C. N. Benson on Oct. 9,'  1894, after which he -sent llie body  adrift in a boat. The moral depravity  of some of the principals, accordinjr to  the evidence, if true, as Judge Walkeni  remarked, is unparalleled.- Much of  the evidence was unfit for publication  liut enough has been reported to show  that they lived with no apparent  j'eg'arf' for even the common  decencies of life or- society. Tlie  prisoner's - wife, in her evidence,  says that her husband killed Ben son  on finding him in it compromising  position with her, and further that'her  husband was guilty of <n-en grosser  indecencies. The defence attempt oil  to prove, that Mrs. Smith was guilty of(  puriury and  that the   whole,   scheme"  < h  was a plot, to get rid of Smith.  The judge charged strongly against  1.he prisoner, notwithstanding which  the jury returned a verdict of "not.  .guilty." In receiving the finding the  judge said that though he did not.  agree with it,he did not say that itr  ���������was wrong. To the prisoner he said :  "You are acquitted, owing to considerable extent, no doubt, because you had  ii bad woman for a wife. Don't''carry  your threat, to   shoot her into  effect;  ' "because I think you did threaten  though the jury may nbt think so. If  you do shoot her there might not be  the same' verdict another time. Yen  .can go." The prisoner walked'up'to  the head of the row close to the   judge  ;.and proceeded  to   shake   hands   with  , ithejury. This was too 'much for the  judge. , Rising in his seat he shouted  *��������� Here 1 What in the world are you  doing? Get out of here; get out of  ft.he, building; "you'll want to shake  hands-with ine next. I don't, believe  they'd do such ii thine even in th-  United States. The. crowd have cheered, and it pail's me to note a British  audience'eheering at a verdict for the  first time in my experience. Gentlemen of tlie jury, you are discharged."'  Commenting upon the. evidence the  vVniH'(Hivj'r fForW siiys: "We agree  ���������with the   Hon.   Mr.   Justice   Walkeni  .ithatif the evidence in the.' Benson  murder trial is trustworthy the depravity which exists'in some portions  of the Province is lamentable. We  think it opportune to point out that  wbile"*missionai-ies are flocking, amid  ,mueh eclat, into heathen lands���������China  , 'for instance���������they might do, useful  ���������work at honie ' among the white  heathens who disgrace our common  humanity. Hundreds of useful lives  pind millions of money aro poured into  -the Orient to tiring 'The Mongolian  horde to Christ, while in this fair  Dominion the moral nature is repeatedly shocked by the recital of crimes  f.lint religious fervor might do much  to extirpate.
