It. vvas  finally h'arned'that Mr.  JIcLeod  had  gone into NewrWestminster on  Tuesday and had taken out a  free  uiiiier'.-  licehsc, on the strength   of  which  the  claim was staked.    It appears that for  some   (hue   the   rods   of   the  Jioriug  apparatus,     which   became   magnetic  front the friction, have been cumbered  with accumulations of metal,   necessitating   frequent  cleaning. '  This   first  was   considered   a   nuisance,   until   a  happy" thought struck someone that as  there,was'no water to be had they had  better see if   the   mineral   was   worth  anything.    Some of   tin;  gold .secured  was   brought   to   this'city   and   pro-,  nounced to he ' of ' the' finest   quality.  Some of the sand and ot her ivfu.-e from  the boring waswashed outaiid it assayed .10 cents to the  pan.    It, was  found  that the. deposit was at a depth   of 2(50  (feet. ' Mr. McLeod, on the strength, of  these farts,' took* out   the   license   re-  ,fened to.'   Before to-n.nrvow it is likely that all the land in the vicinity  will  "lip planted thick with 'miner'.-, stakes.*  The place wheie Mr. McLeod has been  boring ,is   on   municipal r-property,   a,  short, distance from the municipal hall  and  just   across   from   the   city   hall.

Where the attorney  for the defence has failed is a matter  of record. The promised alibi has not  been established. 'The roll will kept  by I'r. Cheney is all that stands  between'the prisoner and tbe scaffold.  If there is one of the twelve jurois  who belies es it correct, his life will be  saved. Speculation has siiown, however, that it, is a mere copy and an  erroneous one. at that. The effort ,of  the defence to impeach the testimony  of the leading witnesses for the prosecution amounted to nothing. The  attempt to prove .Oiirrant innocent  fell', flat a.s not a vestige of evidence  that was presented points to such a  eoiiclusion.

Away tripped Virgini*i.,and Mve. Varley,  leisurely descending, followed her husband  to tlie platform ot the show, where she  ensconced hereelf, at the , seat of euBtom,  whilst Solomon assumed the active director,  ahip of the band. The band, comprising  thirty-five instruments, groaned, whec/.ed,  banged.and blared in a gig box.obedient'to  a rota.y handle. The crowd flowed in, and  the sound oi copper and silver tinkled  pleasantly through the tunes played by  the mechanical orchestra, whose strains  had long ceaaed tb charm the musical ear  of its proprietor. Solomon, indeed, ,was  , wont to relate a story to the discredit of  the drehesira.  ' One day,' said Sol, 'I takes a pitch  right oppisyte a chemis' an' druggis'a place,  an' in doo lime I toons up. Well,ho stands  it 'regular an1 plucky for about  half a, hour or so, an' then he  walks over. "Mister," he says���������quite tho  polite gentleman���������"I ain't a eomplainin'  'parly as a rule,"he says, "but your orgiu  is too much for me." "Well, governor,'* I  ups ant, says, "you ought to have more  humb.n nuiur'than complain," I says: "I  know it's hard on you," 1 says, " to have  to'listen to it, but you'll think o' me sometimes," I bays, ���������"with a tear o' pity on  account o'linyhavin' to play it regular,  won't you?" , It closed him up, if you'll  bslieve me,' Solomon would add, 'aa sudden  a.i a clasp-knife.'  On the present occasion Mr. Varley  ground away mechanically, and was more  bent upon observing the faces of the crowd  than even on the pleasant tinkle, which  made its way through the wheeze and blare  of his own music. There were'straw hais  in plenty before him,' but the particular  straw hat of whose owner Jim had warned  him was not there, and the showman'was  not sorry for its absence. - The common  interest in zoology was 'not strong enough  tb 'induce young men of, geutlemanly  exterior to follow his unrivalled collection  from village to village, and Solomon had  needed no warning as to the object which  caused "the woarer of the straw hat to  follow the show with a persistence so  unusual.-    ,  Perhaps Solomon 'was mentally shortsighted. Perhaps, notwithstanding two;  and-twenty years of matrimonial experience, ho was little versed in the ways of  women. Possibly his own , open-hearted  nature and sterling honesty and straightforwardness helped lo blindfold him.  Virginia had gone into the village t,oo buy  floss, silk���������quite the most innocent of  errands. And the young gentleman in tho  Btraw hat was not anywhere in the immedi-  t ate neighbourhood ol the show. Quite a  satisfactory matter. It never occurred to  him that the young gentleman might mest  Virginia. ' lie would havo been ready ,t'o  knock down anybody who had told him  'that Virginia had gone to meet the young  gentleman.1  Tne showman's daughter went along the  shady side of the street swinging a dainty  little basket in her hand. She bought the Hods  silk to satisfy conscience and answer possible inquiries.uud then strolled on under the  shade of pleasant boughs nito ii'leafy lone.  She blushed and trembled as she went, and  was many a time hall inclined lo turn back  again, but by-and-by a young man'wearing  a straw hat heaved in Bight, and. throwing  away a half smoked cigar, turned his" lounging walk into a quick ouo, and' approached  her finding, hat in hand.  ' So you are here after all !'*he said  goutly.,  ' J shouldn't have come,' fluttered Virginia, ' if I had dreamt that you would be  here,'  ' Don't,', said the wearer ol tho straw  hat pleadingly,���������' don'tbe be so cruel as lo  say so.'  'Don't think I came lo meet you,' s-aid  the hllle coquette. 'As if I should think  of such a thing !'  'I hope you will think of ir sometimes,,'  said her companion Boftly. . "if you knew  Ww lonely it is to wait! If you knew how  hard it is to go away without having aeeu  you \\  'I can't always bo strolling about  country lanes,' said Virginia pertly ; 'i.  come as ofteu as lean.'        ��������� c  ���������  'ou do liy to come, tiien 1' tie tibkub.  ,iu\v   you  do    try   to   trip   one,    Mr.  Verschoylo '.'said Vnginia.

There was a certain sort of majeaty in  being proprietor, of a wild-beast show under  such circumstances, and Solomon was in  his glory. ' ,   ���������  Suddenly his wile came in' with a shawl  over her head, and forced her way through  the crowd. Solomon, seeing that she maae  towards him, went easily to meet her. She  was pale and breathing hard, and clutching  him by the arm, with both hands she gasped  out two words :���������  'Jennie's gone !'  'On a night like this !' said Solomon.  'She'll catch her death.-1  'She's gone, ..JSol, she's gone '.' cried the  mother, almost screaming. ,  ' What d'ye mean V uaked Solomon.(  People began to stare at them. ' Come  out o' this,' he said, and Beizini; her by the  arm, he forced his way through the crowd  to the outer platform. The rain came down  in straight-ruled glittering linos, blurring  the lights u> the shop opposite. One  blinding Cash of lightning fell as Solomon  and his wife came upon the platform, and  a tremendous roar of thunder followed.  ' Now, what's tho matter '!' he asked,  when the awtul sound had rolled itself  away.        , ,  The woman wrung her hands and moaned.  'She's gone, Sol, she's gone !' was all  tiie answer she could make.  'What d'ye mean ?' cried the' showman,  refusing to recognise a meaning.  'Oh, "Sol, dear Sol I' she cried, clinging  to him and breaking into tears.  'Uome along !' cried Solomon, shaking  himsilf free and seizing her arm again.  'Come along I' He hurried her through  the pelting rain'to tho house on wheels.  '.Now, what's the matter ?'    .  'Sol,' cried his wife,' waving her hands  up iind down like a mad woman, 'the's run  away.' -r     u ' ���������  Solomon's face was white beneath its  bronze already, but at that cruel stab ho  turned ghastly, and hia hands dropped to  his sides like lead.    ���������  ' 'Hero's a note,' <cried the distracted  mothcr,now fumbling at her dres8,and now-  waving her hands wildly. 'Hero's a note  she lett behind. Oh, Sol ! oh,my poor Sol,  as loved her dear I Oh, ������ol ! -bear up "like  a dear good soul ! Don't break your heart,  don't break your heart 1' And saying this  sho cast her arms about him, and swooned  and lost all knowledge of her agony for a  hltls while. Solomon laid hor gently down  and stood above her like a statue.'  A step came up the ladder, but he did  not hear it. A hand was laid upon his  shoulder, and ho turned. Theresiood Jim,  wild-eyed, dripping wet, and as pale- us'  death.  ' ������  'She knowB V s-aid the man, half recoiling  at sight of the prostrate, figure.  'Yes,' said Solomon, 'she knows.'  'I see her go,' panted Jim, for he was  out of breath ,wilh running. 'I follered,  thinking somethin' was the matter to take  hnr out on such a night as this,' A flash ob  lightning heralded a peal of thunder overhead, and the showman could only see his  moving lips, but'heard nothing more until  the noise had rolled away again. 'They got  intoa cab iin'drovea>vay. I could see as they  was a-makin' for the King's Dock or else for  the South Pier,' an' 1 run like mad, but I  lost sight of 'em.'  Solomon lionrd this," but returned no  word. When it vvas all spoken he moved  slowly away, and,taking up a glass,poured  water into it from a brown pitcher, and  then sat down beside his wife and moistened her lips and temples.  'Ain't you k aoin' to do'nothing ?' cried  Jim.' ' Ain't you a goiu' ,to foller her to  the world's end ? Ain't you a goin' to  calch that teller, if you travel, till you're  Ktey more you do.it, and twist, his wicked  neck tor him ? Thai's what I'm a gom' to  do, master.'

The lightning  was still unrolling swift bheet on sheet of  flame, but the thunder was crashing and  rumbling to the northwards, and no  longer spoke at the flash, but growled  sullenly seconds later, and the ra,n had  ceased iw suddenly as it came. Jim  thought himself alone on deck, when the  dock, and theshipping,and tlie warehouses,  and tlie water, and lhe very heavens all  seemed to make a sudden leap at him in  the vivid lightning, and to rush back with  an awful swiftness as darkness struck  light dead. The twinkling yellow lamps  were nothing in the pause. With the  next flash an oilclothed figure sprang into  being and went out again, and came along  the deck as if each flash that follovted  drove.it forward with a fiery wind. Then  there was darkness for a second or two,  anil the twinkling lamps recovered light a  littlo, and Jim saw the oilclothed figure  near.       , '    /  ' What is it, mate?'  'Do you carry passengers?' demanded  Jim, still breathing hard, and speaking  like a man foredone with haste.  ' Yes,' sa)d the other.  'Is there a young man among ,'em, a  geiiileinun, with blue eyes an' light mous-  tachioB, with a lady;''a young lady, veyr  proity, in a dark frock?'  His hurry was so passionate, he'could  scurcely speak.  'i don't know, said the seaman. What  about em' if there is?'  'I've come to,stop 'em,' said Jim.. *They  must be stopped; it's life an' death.'  1 'Have yon got,any authority to atop  'em ?' asked the seaman, 'If you have, an'  they're abroad, I'm captain of thia boat,  an' I'll Bee it acted  on.'  'See if they're here,' master,' said Jim  beseechingly. 'It's life an' death to more  than one.'  ,'Young   'woman     bolted?'    asked    the,  Captain. '        b  'Yes,' said Jim, with wild reluctance, as,  though the-anavver were plucked out of  him. / 'For the Lord's sake/' master, see if  they're here.    It'life   an' death.'  'I can't say' whether they're aboard or  not,' Baid the Captain, 'but there is a pair  as seems lo answer your description.  Passage booked yesterday. They're all  the passengers I have to-night���������and likely  to be, by the look o' ihmgs. , Come this  way.'  The bows of the boat having been warped  already from the wall, Jim had climbed  aboard at the after-end, and the deck he  stood ou formed the roof ot the saloon.  He followed llie Captain to the main deck,  and peered mio the saloon from the Bide of  the stoward's  pantry.  ' Is that the pair ?' asked   the   Captain,  with a tight grip on Jim's shoulder.  /That's the pair,'  aaicl.Jim in a hoarse  whisper,,*lrawing back on deck again.  Verschoyie was leaning over little Virginia, who was crying behind her veil.  ' Have you any authority to 3top 'em?'  ueked the Captain.  'No,' Eaid Jim. ''But, master, look  here.' He waved his hands abroad pleadingly, and His voice was thick with hurry  and despair. ' I've been a servant of her  father's over since I was a kid. I've left  lier mother Mvounded dead olr, an' her  father a-settin' by her that broken-hearted  it'd melt a stone,'    ',       ���������'    ��������� <>  'D'ye think they're married ?',asked the  Captain, speaking imohia brown hand leBt  he should be overheard.  Jim shook his head with a* negative so  decided that ihe Captain was convinced at  once, and said, ' Eh, dear !' in a' tone of  pity.    AtthatLone Jim took heart.  ' Master,' he said, ,' maybe you've got  a daughter o' 'your own. Have a heart,  master���������do, lor the Lord's sake, have a  heart.  ' Wait here a bit," returned the Captain.  'Here, stand there.'  All the time they talked together the  hymning rolled ou us sheets of llame with  lo-it and less rapidity and brilliai.ee, and  the thunder iumbled farther and larther  uway.

'JNovv tell her thai poor yarn before a man  of the world, will you? Eh? Will you ?  Y'u miserable liar !'  ' How dare you ?' cried tlie g rl,'sobbing.  ' How date you speak ao ?' '  ' Come, Virginia,' said Verschoyie ; and  she arose, crying bitterly.  ' I speak so,' aai.l the Captain, ' because  it's true. ��������� He won't tell me a lie like that.  And if he does, I'll see him,stick to it. I'll  appeal lo the Consul on tiie ether side and  see things 'square.' > Tnis the capuiiu  delivered with the air of a man who clinches  the nail of proof ; and, turning again upon  Verschoyie, demanded to know whether  thai would suit him. Virginia had raised  her veil, and was looking from one to the  other. ' My poor dear,' eaid the Captain,  softening aa he turned to her, " he doesn't  mean to marry you. Ask him if he does.

' ������������������  ' Ask him if he means it I' cried the  Captain, thrusting his hand almost in  Verschoyle's face. ' , '  The' handsome rasal'a face, with the  lowering frown upon it, said ' No' without  a word, or need of one. She read the base  denial there, and burst into renewed teurs,  and wrung her hands, and murmured that  it was cruel.    Oh, it was cruel, cruel !  Moved by the sight of youth and beauty  brought to such distress, the Captain turner! upon Verschoyie for the last time.  ' Now then ! Sharp there ! One minute  more, and I'll-haveyou chucked overboard.  Hi ! you there !' Jim entered. ' Collar  them two portmanteaus and chuck 'em  ashore.' Jim Beized tho luggage, and  would have been rejoiced to extend the  order to its owner. ,' Now, get out.' Verschoyie retired before the lndignautCapliiin,  mounted the ladder, croaiod the taloon  deck, and went ashore^ Jim threw the  luggage unceremoniously after him, and  iheu, following the Captain, returned to  the saloon, and, taking Virginia's hand, led  her unie'sistiug, from the vessel.  ' God bless you, master, for what'you've  (lone thia night,' said Jim in taking leave of  the Capiain. The men wete moving about  the dock by this time, the mate was  ordering here and there,ropes were tugging  across the darkness, and the ship was  quivering with the short urgent stroke of  the engines.' . -    '  ' Take her home, and good luck to you,'  said the Captain m. reply and went back  to duty, and treated sea-going virtue to a  slili'glass by the way.  Verschoyie summoned a hansom' and  drove to an hotel, feeling mean, as our  trans-Allanlic cousin", say. The writer  feels au unfeigned joy in kicking him out  of the story.  For a while poor Virginia suflered Jim  to lead her, beinir, indeed, so broken that  she scarcely Knew him,or knew of anything  but Versc-hoyie'a basoncfrs. But utter u  time she turned and spoke.  * Good-bye, James, lie kind to fattier  and inoihi'i*.'

Now there ia to be  chronicled another item of a very different  nature, theyunbounded euceess of the cod  and lobster hatchery in Trinity Eay, and  with it, a catch that promisee to be a  remarkably good one.  Four yeara ago this hatchery was started  at the instance of a merchant of Su John's,  and carried ou fora while at his own expense. Then the Government took it up  and made it a province affair, placing it on  a most liboral basis and sparing no expense  in Blocking the sea with fish.  Trinity Hay was chosen as tho location  of the hatchery on account'of its sheltered  position and its many little inlets aud shallow bays. As the fry are sent out to shift  for themselves a few weeks after they are  hatched, shallow 'waters and sheltered  shcrea are by far the bc8t places for them  to thrive in (so the' hatchery managers argued), for'there they*run little risk'of being  devoured hy larger fish, or of being swept  out into very deep water, and there also  they have much less difliculty in obtaining  their daily supply of food.  on isir.no isy.AN'D  the hatchery was placed and was put under  tho management of a Norwegian named  Nelson. The Government provided a yearly  appropriation of some' $10,000, and this  proved ample for.every purpose. -So well  did Nelsou manage the affairs of the hatchery that when the scientists and men of  affairs interested in fisheries met at the  World's Fair in a 80i*t,of small convention,'  the hatchery at Newfoundland, it was  uciecd by all, had proved ilself one of tho  best in the world. In lobsters actually  hatched and sent out tiie records bhowed  thai, the most remarkable achievements in  artificial hatching anywhere in tho world's  history had been performed ; while in cod  hardly'loss had bepn accomplished.  In tho four years since the establishment  of theliaichery2,500,000,000 young lobstera  have been hatched out and 05,000,010 young  cod., Tho main result accomplished has  been' to more than entirely nullify tho  reckless slaughter of cod wilh spawn during  recent yeais.- This destruction was nob  wanton, but the fishermon were driven Lo  it through competition. ',    , ,  Last'year j list about this time, several  months before the disclosures of the  financial "weakness, the Newfoundland  Legislative'Assembly then sitting had a  hoi debate over ihe Hatchery question, the  pcint disputed being the annual appropri-,  at ion. It had resolved ,itself into a strictly  political matter, the panics of the" island  being divided upon the question strictly  on parly  lineB.  ,       THE    AVPUOnilATIO"*.-* ,     '  was in doubt, when reports began lo aomo  iu from Trinty liay. It should be premised  that cod must be tliree years old to be  worth tlie catching,' and it was then just  three years from the limo of tiie establishment of  the   hatchery.',  The 'Trinity Bay'reports were most, favorable. In their detail they astounded evoiy  mem bur of the then Bitting house, for they  showed that the cntch, m proportion to  that of former years in this bay, was of  unprecedented sizo. The hatchery had  proved ilself an unqualified succcs-s.  Parly lines were at, once biokcn, and in a  burst, of enthusiasm the appropriation bill  for the futlier continuance of ihe hatchery  was  curried.  This year lh<-rc seems-no doubt that the  eaten will be fully up Co last year's. The  lobsier catch is particularly good,' loo,  though the 'hutclipry peoplo have experienced much difficulty in incteasing llie  supply of them in the waters of Newfoundland as tnsl us llio! number ihey have  lunched would seem to vvurrnnt. For tiie  young lobsters tire not, only subject to all  'the dangers of the deep, hot tor a few  weeks after,they are hatched light villainously und kill each otnor by the hundieds  and devour one another cauuibulisiically  at'u great rule.  Tlie fislie'imen aro a veiy prot-pcrriis set  of men. 'Iho fishing t-eason tor cod begins  in June and ends m Octoiier. All sorts of  methods arc practised in catching the fish.  Traps, nets and seines are used and lliero  in also moiu or leas hand-line fbshing. The  fashion varies, and the fislieinien constantly change their ways of secuting their  game. Sevui".l years iiito traps���������act and  baited very much as are lobster ttups, and  eimihir in coustiuci on���������weie used. Now  trails in most districts are considered a  trble out of dale anil  Nr/rs and Miisr.s  are more in favor. Many of tho nets  are "sot." There is1 comparatively little  Uahing nowadays by hand-line, except in  iho small boats mi lined by three o four  men thai go out only a little distance from  s I) ore.  Kimrmous arc the catches made iu u  mrigle iluy and by a (bugle boat. Somo of  the larger rrufl have no trouble at all in  pccuruig -(|0 qiiimails of fi������h for a single  (iav's work.

A  Hinglo female i������ said to contain 9,0011,000  eggi". Goinpirutivoly few of ibce are  ever hatched, of couri-e, und tho fry that  actually do appear are still further reduced in numbem liy all ports of con'itigcnc'.es.  Very few of them in proportion actually  live to lie three-yciir-old lifh.

A Nation of Stilt-Walkers.  A boy's idea of using stilts ia to find a  method of walking that is difficult and  requires skill. That a community ot peoplo  should'.be compelled to use stilta, in order  to do their work and get about tho country,  js almost unknown. It is not singular  that these, people become so expert that  they can knit whilo walking on stilts.  The stilt-walkers live in the south of  France, on the Bhores of tho liny of-Biscay  and near iho bonders of Spain���������s-.>' near  that they have acquired many habits of the  Spanish people. The country of tho stilt-  'walkcr's is Landca. Very many years ago  tho people were driven to still-walking,  ,'The wind from the Bay of Biscay blow the  tine, while sand far inland,'making what  ,ve call duiies, which are waves ot sand  that remind you of tho motion of high  waves. They look like wavea 'suddenly  turned'to sand. It was imposaiblo co walk  over this sand,'and all the grass and other  vegetation suflered and vvaH choked by it.  Tlie people wcro shepherds, but it '-jecamo  harder and harder to find feeding-ground  for the sneep. Then the government made  the experiment of planting pine forests.  These grew, and prevented the sand drifting in ub before. Still, walking is very  difficult and almost impossible for women,  except by tho use of alilts.- When the people walk on the ground,'they walk in their  bare feet. The leg ib covered with u footless stocking. The foot-rest of thestilt ia  'covered wilh sheepskin, with the wool  uppermost,, making iiaoftrost for tho fool.  Tne pine forests not only i>aved tho land  from utter desolation, but it gave th'e'/people '  employment. The collection of rcsm ia tho  most profitable industry,, in thin section.

' The stilts used in this race were  sixty'-fivo inchesin length,but the ordinary  walking-stilt ia foity-five inches.

There are now in Africa so many white  men, English,' Dutch, Portuguese, Italian,  French, Belgian, and German, that the  slave trade can never again flourish there.  More than a million people who are not  black can now say that thev are Africans, and  a good many of them can boast that they  are natives of Africa. JTho-whites, who  for a long lime' did no? venture beyond  the coast regions, are advancing inland,  where there are largo areas which they  find to be"inviting. Millions of black people were brought from Africa in 6lave  ships last century to North and South  America, where their descendants now  live. Largo numbers of white Europeans  have in thia century gone to Africa, aud  there established homea for tlieir descendants. The blacks multiply in Brazil and  the United States ; the whites thrive in  Egypt and Algeria, 'in Cape Colony, aud  tho South African republic. As for the  Asiatic races, they prefer to stay in the  , countries which they have inhabited, from  time immemorial.  The Jap-vuese resent the ' efforts of the  Christian   missionaries   sent   to    convert  ' them, but not in the savage and malignant  epirit   displayed in   China.    They   think  that now, at least, they are entitled to be  regarded   and   treated'  aB   civilized   and  enlightened peoplo, and cot as. benighted  heathen requiring religious instruction and  guidance from  foreigners and  at  'foreign  expense.    Accordingly the Japanese Christians are'showing a disposition to cut loose  from     the   foreign   missionary   societies  ,'    which are   supporting   missions   in their  country.    They do  not^ wish   to  remain  longer under su'jh tutelage, as if they vyero  an inferior   people.    They  contend   that  Christianity cannot grow, in Japan as an  ,    exotic kept alive by  foreign i-nurture, but  must   develop    naturally'   under   purely  Japanese influences.    The Japanese Christians wish to manage their  owu  churches  aud conduct   their   own   missions.    This  feeling has been    manifested ��������� by them so  decidedly that'a committee,.has lately gone  (   thither to represent the   American  Board,  with a view to adjust the  eomplicuMoir-To"  which it has given rise.      i>  It seems very remarkable that any missionary association should offer resistance  ���������" to a disposition so natural and so creditable  to the Japanese. Unquestionably the  chances'of the spread of Christianity > in  Japan, would be gieutly increased if all  prejudice against the religion ua a foreign  system, forced ou the peoplo rby purely  foreign agencies, could be removed., Originally, doubtless, it was 'necessary that it  should be planted by Europeau and Ameri-  cau ' effort ; but now that' it has gained  root, why should it ,not be left to the  'cultivation of-the Japanese themselves?  They have v been quick to ittdopt other  advantages and to fdllowyother practices of  Western civilization,romodelling their owu  jn the process ; and, witii like emulation,  they are hospitably disposed toward  Christianit}*. But their pride as a self-  sufficient people is offended by the implication that religiously they cannot bo loft  without foreign missionary guardianship.  The consequence ia that Christianity suffers  in Japanese popular sentiment as an alien  .religion supported by alien mcctis and  agencies. It does not possess, the vitality  of a native growth. *   '  u ��������������������������� ^ 0  Even tho violent Chinese prejudice  against the foreign missionaries, of which  the recent, outrages at the mission stations  are the terrible fruit, it is not at all surprising. It is natural and inevitable. It is no  bitterer than ihe animosity which'has been  exhibited by our own people against China-'  men in this country; and it is very  remarkable that 'the atrocities charged  against the Ohnatiau missionaries in China  by tho ignorant and superstitious natives,  closely resemble those ��������� which have been  brought against Chinamen here. Suppose  'Chinamen eatabliBhed a regular system of  missionary agencies for the propagation of  their religion hero, would they be any  better treated by Christian mobs than the  Christian missionaries havo been treated by  Chinese mobs?

Highland Brigade,  under that dashing  oliicer, Sir Colin Campbell.    We  have  to  say thai that brigade   had   the  respect of  tho whole allied army, aud of the Russians,  too,   utter   peace    vvas   signed,   when   a  number of the   men got passes, and went  into the Russian lines, besides having  our  hula full of Ruasians; .who came to see us.  We   landed  at Old ,Fort at about'one  o'clock, aud formed  line along with   the  brigade of guards, marched about a   mile  inland from tie beach,   aud were  ordered  to lie down  with  our   knapsacks on   our  backs, and great coats   lolled  across our  shoulders.    Wo were told   not  to  light n  fire, or match, or light a, pipe.    We  were  in   the front  line.    About dusk   a i-.torm  came on, and the rain fell in torrents  and  of course wo got wet through lo lhe skin.  In the morning you could wring the water  out of our kilts by bucket fulls.    The sun  came out about eight o'clock,   and   wo got  the order, after it waB seen that there wag  no Russian army iu sight, to strip, and pot  bonnets, coata and kilts dried.    It  was  a  sight to see the men  cutting about  in  all  directions likobnauiaos,- with ihe speed of  racehorses, aud nothing but,their shirts on,  but   ultimately we   felt  fairly warm  and  dryb   There was no wood to be got to light  a  lire, and the waler  was  brackish   und  unpalatnble.    la the afternoon of that day  they   brought'  ashore   three   tents���������bell-,  shaped. ' The men of each company tossed  up as to who should- go into the lents, bin,  they only  held eighteen   to twenty   men  each, and most of us spent another night,  iD the open.,   About midnight the picquets  began   firing.     The    shouts   and   bugles  sounded,  " STAND TO  YOUR' ABMSl"  and all over ihe British and French car.ipa  we began   to fall   in.    All   the men   who  were lying outside were up like ashot, but.  some of those iu the  tent'a  were in  a bad  fix, tor the heavy dew had shrunk the tents  up so   light that they could not gel tlio  flaps opened, and one of tho tents was lifted  up bodily, polo and all, and out  came  the  occupants, scrambling over each  other in  tlieir eagerness   to get  to   their places in  their company.  Nothing came of the scurry  on   this occasion, us 'a misttiko had been  niado by some of tho French sentries.    We  lay in that place until the 18th September,  wondering where the tenta had goc to.    A  number of ue fell sick, on account vof  the  brackiah water, hut there was a wonderful  reluctance on the part of the men lo going  on the sick list ; they would go with their  comrades at all hazards or  die  in the attempt.    On tho morning of the 19th wo all  fell in by regiments, anil all  of   us' looked  wilh confidence to our brigadier,   with all  his medals  on his breast.    " Condie" we  called him.    Then   the   Highland brigade  consisting of   the 42nd,   93rd,   79th regi-  merits, got    the    order to   fix   bayonets,  shoulder arms, and quick march.  We wont  about a quarter of a mile, and look up our  position alongside of the brigade of guards,  with two batteries of artillery between us.  The other cectiona of the  army came  up,  and to the sound of our numerous  bands,  that seemed to  fill the air with  mania!  noise, tho whole column  moved forward.  One of  the things   that   remains on our  memory is that before us, riding on horseback by the side of her husband wrb Lady  Errol,   tho. wife of Captain Lord Errol.  About four o'clock we came in Hichi of the  Russian outposts   at  a   small   river   (tho  Bulganac).    Tho   arlillery opened  fire in  front,   with the  light cavalry supporting  them.    The allied armies halted,  and this  went on for some time, and then the   Russians retired, and wo all lay down for *tho  good many of us had only been u6ed to  "blank.") Then we got tbe leii turns by  brigade*. Our brigade inarched a good  mile to the left before we formed line on  the Guards  ' By this time on the richt, next the >=ea  under cover of the small cruisers, the  French were ascending the heights. The  whole of the British army were lying down  in line in the following order-.���������Rifle Brigade, skirmishing order ; first line, light  division in line ; second line, aecond  division in lino next to French iirst  division, next Eecond division, all'one line  about three miles in length, third and fourth  divisione, 'behind in columns. The light  division left brigade was in front of our  brigade. Then we all got the order by divisions to advance, and going over the plain  we could see our postB stuck in the ground  for the different   ' "  KANGBS  OF THEIR GUKS.  WThen the rifle brigade got under fire we  could see LaHy Errol shaking hands with  her husband, Capt.Lord Errol and retiring  by hereelf, looking around every short time  to aee him advancing nearer the Russians.  She came back and passed through our'  brigade going to the rear, we saw her bow  toourn.en when she passed.' She could  not have passed long before the word paEsed  along from some of the Rifle brigade who  were lying wounded that her husband was  snot.,* Tne .descent to the river waa a  dreadful hot place, all kind of shot, we got,  but as luck happened it, all went over our  heads, and our brigadier seemed to be 'in  hia glory. He was" flying about with Ins  sword in his hand saying "Keep up your  heads there." for it was on this side of the  river that a number of tiie light .division  threw away their shukos,'knapsacks, and  camp kettles. However, with me exception  of one of our men who got the straps of his  knapBack shot off, we lost nothing at this  point. We advanced up the Alma hill  nearly at double. Half way up we passed  through the ranks of one brigade of tlie  light division. On the top of the" hill our  brigadier's horse was shot'under him, but  'he was soon up  again,   swung his' sword  6  .    again,   swung   round his head and said "Men, I am all  right." The rapid way he took the brigade  up the heights was the means of carrying  it. Next day the sight of the wounded  was something,awful. The surgeons were  going about the field, with their,knives' in  their hands, cutting off arms and legs, and  as no chloroform was used the resolution of  the men in not crying out vvub very remarkable. We spent three days at the Alma  burying the dead.

If there is any one thing tftst requires  the dairyman's personal attention more  than any other it is milking writej O. J,  Vine. More good cows are spoiled every  year by careless milking than any other  way. A very h'tile milk left in the udder  at each milking will cause the best cow to  decrease, and eventually to ceiioe milking  entirely.  ' The milking should not only be done  thoroughly, but it should be done quickly,  and, unless the operator singe, should be  done quietly. In Switzerland it is said  they pay an extra price to a milker who  eiugs. No loud, boisterous language  should be'permi tted. The cow is a nervous  animal, and any undue excitement affects  the quantity and quality of the milk unfavorably.  Do not allow persona or dogs lo worry  the cows. Heifers that have been care,  fully and kindly handled from calf hood to  maturity seldom develop into kickers, 'but  occasionally there is one that does.' It is  always beat to determine the cause, if  possible, and remove it. The teats'may be  aore and tender. An application of vaseline.  French mixture, or lard, will bring relief.  If the udder is inflamed and swollen frequent fomentations of hot'water and'an'  application of either of the above named  remedies will usually prove eliectual.  Another very simple and effectual remedy  iato-mix enough of the cow's millr with a  few hondfuls of salt to make a thin paste  and anoint the udder four or'five times per  day.    That is our usual remedy.  great care should attend the selection of  the ono sire for a herd. No mail order is  likely to be satisfactory iu obtaining such  an animal as would prove ihe good average  sire for a whole herd.  The paternity of a do/en calves., of fifty  Iambs or pigs ��������� deserves thougtit, and involves expense if attended to aright. There  is cost to count and to bo incurred in all  enterprises vv here results are of,worth.  The cost of tiie right way ol bleeding is  best a title of the damage resulting from a  mistaken course. A few days' time and a  few dollars in travelling expenses are often  a judicious investment.  When a breeder fails lo net, by mail  order.ril.c, desired sire for his herd it is the  worst folly to proceedj to use such an ":11-  maiuil^in his requirements. ' All things  considered one must, be viuilunt in the  breeding business every month in the year,  in thought as well as in action.  Q  ODD HAPPENINGS  TH-VT  HAVE RE  GENTLY   OCCUfiREJ.

'  With the first calf there is perhaps more  danger of the udder being vinflamed and  tender than at any later period, and will  demand closer attention and the greatest  cure in milking. A cow suffering from any  disease of the udder should be milked thoroughly tliree or four times per day; under  'no circumstances should the udder be full  and distended' any length of time.  Kindness, firmness  and fearlessness are  necessary qualifications in   a good'milker.  One vvho cannot control his t;mper or who  is afraid of a cow,need not expect io become  a   successful   milker.      Kindness   is   not  thrown away, even to an animal.'    I know  it sometimes requires a great" deal of patience io milk a kicking cow, but if a person  is determined he can control himself under  almost any oircumsraucos. ,, Occasionally a  cow will persist  in, kicking in spite'of all  .precautions.    For such  I use a light rope,  with, a  hook'at one end and a Bhort chain  at the other, i* Put it atound the cow just  in front of tiie udder ; draw real tight, and  hook in the chain. She can scarcely lift her  feet,  and it causes her no-pain unless she  tries to  kick.   .Sometimes the difficulty is  caused by a change of surroundings, from  one farm to unother.or a change of milkers.  Never change miikers if it can be avoided.  With some cows il makes little difference ;  othet's   will not stand at all for a strange  person.   >������  Last fall'I   purchased a''fine Guernsey  hoifer for 5*20 that had become spoiled in  milking.    When   she  freshened she stood  well until   she found   the hired man  was  afraid of her, when she kicked so terribly  that we were obliged to put the calf to her  again.    The calf had been allowed to do  the milking until four or five daja which I  knew was a mi8take, but it occurred whilo  I, was away from home.    I always despaired of " reclaiming" that cow for the dairy,  but at the end   of six months   weaned the  calf, and strange to say, had   very little  difficulty in  training her.    She is us quiet  aud gentle  now ns  any in   the herd and  bids fair to be an extra butler cow.   She ib  (living now, eight months after freshening,  about   21   gallons of   7 per cent, milk per  day.    On account of the- difficulty in milking her, the former owner allowed   her to  go dry about April 1,*>,  '9;").    She will noi  freshen until January 15, '90.   Her performance   has   disproved the old theory that  if a heifer doea not continue   long in milk  she^will be of little value id the dairy  The best time to wean a calf is when  only ono day old ; tlien there is little difficulty iu teaching it to drink, and the cow  will not free and worry as much then us  later. If the calf jb inlended for the  butcher at four weeks old it should not be  allowed to run with its ,dum continually.  A cow should ,be milked lit regular intervals, which would not he tlie case if the  calf was with her at all times^ I am aatis;  fied it would be better for the cow to millc  her and feed the whole milk to the calf,  A calf will persist in hutting, aud it is  certainly ia injurious to I he cow.

A , red.polled co'w., at Whittlingham,  Eng,, has yieliied milk continuously since  she ceased calving, five years'ago, her record being 13,731 quarts' of milk of tlio first  qualily. No otlier case like this is known.  Every soldier knows that a horse will  not step on a man intentionally. It is a  standing order in tho British cavalry if a  trooper becomes dismounted ho mubt lie  still. If lie does this the whole squadron  will paBB over him without doing him in-'  jury.      ,      ,, ,  Tho Volo makes announcement of an *  important tricycle race shortly to be hold' .'  in the velodrome at Lyons, France, between Baroness Emma von Sattender and  Miss Amy Ewer. Tho victorious maiden  will- win tho hand of a German millionaire,  Albert  Meller.  Bordeaux wine is very cheap in Europe,  sometimes.    At  present   tho   owner of a  -  lurge vineyard  near  Uordcaux   ia sending  out  circulars in  which ho offers   to  aena '  caaea of S00 bottlea  of two-year-old   wine,  freight paid to any town, evon in Switzerland, for 130 francs. That means Bordeaux ���������  at about eight cents a  bottle.  ,   King  Humbert of  Italy   has a private  foriuuo of S30.UOO.000. - Tno whole of thia  anug sum is deposited with the Rothschilds  at London.    Tbe King  ia a very bensibie    '  man, sensible also to the tottering  of  his  throne, and ho evidently means lo Bave, if;    '  not his kingdom,, at least his   oaah.  ���������The Vossische /ieitung says that at least  ten women in*Paris have official permission  to wear male garb. One of theso in Rosa  Bonneur, the well-known painter; another  is^-the proprietor, of a .printing office;  another is a bearded woman; the rest aro  painters aud woineii allhcied wish bodily "  ailmenlB or malformations. , "  According to the Zourichor Post, hydro- '  phobia is sometimes introduced into  Switzerland by foxes and vvolvea coming  down, in severe winters, from tho moun- -  tains of o'islern Franco, attacking dogs  and other unimals, aud infecting them  with the venom of the terrible disease.'  Russian philanthropists purpose that  fresh blood Irom tlio abattoirs bo uted in  the preparation of bread,crackers,sausages,  &c. Fresh blood contains much bitumen  and can be obtained ut nominal cost.  Emperor William II. ot Germany is tlie  foe of the reporter. Latoly, during the  muueuuvros near Lippe, he espied a re-'  porter, rodo up to him, demanded to see  his permit, aud thou ordered -him off the  field, remarking that ho " vvill not permit <  criticism."  The deaths always outnumber the birth8  in Franco. Since the beginning of this  century the percentage of childless coupies  has increased from 5 to 10. , The uociors  seom agiood that this is generally due to  gout, maybe tho gout of ancestors living  too vv, 11 one hundred and more years ago,"  There is just cause for a dynamite acaro  in Europe just now. Bombs uro'found in  various localities. A most devilish attempt  waa made lo wreck a steamer ready to  leave Fiunio, Austria, for Ancoua. One  of tho stokers happened to rind among lhe  coal a large bundle of dynamite cartridges,  arid thereby proveuted the total annihilation of the vessel.  'J'he frog hunt ia now prohibited by law  in Belgium. The Belgian hunters, however,  continue their amphibious occupation in  near by Holland, and from Saa-vau-Gent  have sent m one half day us many as  20,000 frogs' legs to Paris lately. Tnete  delicacies bring foi.r to live cents apiece,  anil some of the hunters find the calling  very remunerative.  At Poiikuhl, a small village iu Prussia, a  fanner died last March. Since then one of  his sons has been sickly, and somehow u  rumor wns siarted that tho dead man  would not reit until ho had drawn nine  members oftho family also into the grave.
