A   delegation   from, the    Victoria  Board   of   Trade,    representing    the  principal houses of the capital  city , in  all lines of business, arrived   here   on  Monday  morning,   and    left   on   the  steamer Nakusp for down river,points  the same   evening.    The   party   was  composed of David It. Ker,   President  -of'the Board of Trade; Gustav Leiser,  Vice-President,  and   Fred   'Elworthy,'  Secretary;   Col. El  G.   Prior,   M.P.;  Alex. C. Fluinerfelt,'of, Ames-Holden  Co., and ex-President of the Board of  Trade; R.  J.   Ker,   of  Ri P. llithet  & Co.;  Joseph W. Weiler, - of   Weiler  Bros.; Geo. A. Kirk, of Turner Beaton  Ji'Co.: J-Piercy, of  J. Pie'rcy   &   Co.;  H. G.Wilson, of Wilson Bros.; Edward'  B. Marvin,   of  E. B. Marvin, &' Co.;  Arthur Robertson, of   Martin Robertson & Co.; Robert Cassidy and   B. W.  Pearse.  , The object of the excursion, is , to  overlook the prospects for business in  West Kootenay, and to bring the commercial interests of ��������� the capital into  closer touch with the mining 'districts.  They will visit, before'"their .return,  every prominent mining, camp and  business centre of Southern Kootenay,  and will probably visit Spokane on  ,the invitution of D. C. Corbin, of < the  Spokane & Northern Ry. *  The'local board of Trade' held a  special meeting at'the? Victoria Hotel  to receive'the visitors, when a conference and discussion on several subjects  of importance, was had, which was  participated in bv Col. Prior, M.P.,  David R. Ker, J. M. Kellie,. M-P.P.,  J. D. Sibbald 'and* otheis. Among  the subjects up for discussion was the  store car and the necessity for a "draw  in the* new .Columbia , River bridge.  Mr. Sibbald'explained that the store'  car which operates between Donald  and Kamloops does the local merchanjs  a great' injustice. President Ker  'suggested, that they communicate  with the coast boards of trade for co-  'operation, ,  -- In' discussing   the   bridge   matter,  Mr. J. M. Kellie,   M.P,P., ' spoke * enthusiastically , about   the   Kootenay.  He.expectedto   see ������seven   or   eight  milium dollars   taken-out .next  year,  and"the output would go 'on-steadily  increasing.    ' The   country   north' of  Revelstoke was fully as rich in mineral  as that  to. the 'south,    but' lack   of  capital, and a   freight   rate   of   eight  cents per pound on goods packed from  Revelstoke north had been the   means  of   keeping  back  development.    The  ore from the   north   would   likely   be  shipped to the first smelter   south   of  Revelstoke, if there was not one  here,  and  in  either   case   a   draw   bridge  would be a necessity.    He assured the  visitors that there were many surprises  in store for them, and that  they   had  a great deal to see in West Kootenay.  Col.   Prior   was   the, last   speaker,  after   which,   the  session'  closed,   all  feeling that they had mutually   profited by the information   imparted,   and  having  formed   the   acquaintance. of  many of   the   representative   business  men of the Province.'  ��������� Three Years for Forgery.  After  25    years    service    in     Her  Majesty's -army���������having  reached the  highest, grade of non. com.' officer, and  received an,honorable discharge,   W.  K.  Jamieson   was,   on   Monday   last,  sentenced to three years imprisonment  for having obtained money by a forged  order.   Jamieson is 32 years old and is  well-known along the line, having lived  here for   some   years.    His   story,   as  told by him to His Honor Judge Spinks,,  is not new, 'tis the   story   of   many   a  good man   before   him,   and   may   be  summed up in a   word���������whiskey.   He  had cultivated the appetite for   strong  drink until it become an uncontrollable  ���������passion, to satisfy which he  would  do  almost anything.   Some   months   ago  he comnmled his pension, since 'which  time he has'scarcely   known* a   sober  day.  Jle pleaded guilty lo the charge  of having obtained  $25 by   forging   a  postscript to a-letter of which  he   was  the benrer and appealed  for clemency  on the strength of his   previous   good  character; it,was the   iirst olience he  had   ever   been   charged   with.    Considering   all   the * circumstances     the  court   refrained   from   imposing  extreme    penalty   provided   for  offences.      >' <  the  such  Tenders' Called- For. '  The railway authorities have, called  for tenders* for/the grading, etc., on  the Arrow lake extension, and the  contracts are to be awarded on Monday, when Sup't. Abbott will be here  for that purpose. It is said that the  work-will be let out in small sections  so as to" complete it as soon as possible.  Ajiumber of contractors, have been  around town 'during the week, among  whom were D. McGillivray, W. S.  Nichol and HnghKeefer.of Vancouver;  W. F. Tye, Spokane; andtl. C. Henry,  Seattle.

Balfour, first lord of the  treasury, ' thus explains his ,1-eceut  utterances in the House of Commons  on .the niatter of an international'  conference, which ha ve caused no little  surprise amongst bi-rnetallists both in  Europe and America. He says:  "With reference to my recent .declarations in the House of Commons, I do  not know why. pot-sons interested  should be perplexed over my supposed  change of attitude on the question ot  international bi-metallism, for no such  change has occurred.

Osving to the w.OeT falling so rapidly  in the river the steamer Nakiwp made  her last, trip of the season to the  smelter wharf.

Direct connedion will [a  made with Revelstoke by means of lhe  Arrow Lake branch, thus causing no  delay or inconvenience to the traveling  public. '  The Central Lumber Company,  just  incorporated hi California, is the name  'of'afliimboi* combine formed, it is said,  to enable its members to compete with  the lumbermen of this Piovince. They  saj: that combination of interests has  become imperative because of  the. depressed condition of   the   "trade.    Discussing    the    subject,    one   of   their  number, D. H. Bibb,   of   the   Golden  Gate Lumber Company,   said:    "We  have been talking about this   combination for over  two   years.   The   competition of   British   Columbia   is   too  much for us.   The Canadian   lumberman has every*advantage on  his side.  He does not need to buy his timber, he  merely leases it from the government  and pays for his logs as be takes them  out    The importation of British   Columbia    lumber   is   steadily   growing  larger   and   larger.     American    mills  have been forced to shut down,  wages  have been reduced, and for three years  lumber has been sold for less than cost  in San  Francisco.    We   cannot  compete with British* Columbia,   and   we,  must rely tipon increasing our   foreign  trvde bv establishing new   markets in  China, Japan, Australia and elsewhere.  I do not see that the combination can  raise prices locally,  and   if   it  did   it  would be aq good thing,  for it would  mean living wages for the laborer and  a   better   condition   of    business    all  around.   There is no  field   in   which  Labor finds moie employment,   fcroui  the^monTeiit we   begin   work   in   the  forest to the time the   cut/ lumber   is  AN EXPORT DUTY ON ORE.   . _  J. M. Kellie Says Legislation in this  Direction,is a Necessity.  Editor ' Mail -.���������Every   month * the  output of the mines of VSTest Kootenay  is rapidly increasing   and  there is no  question but in  a   few   years   it   will .  assume   gigantic     pioportions.    The  working of and transportation   of the    ���������  product of our gold,' silver,'- lead   and    ���������'  coppei-j reefs will give employment to a  large  army  of miners   and   laborers.  At present nearly all t be ore produced,     ���������  in the district is   being   smelted   and  refined   in' ' a    foreign     country���������the  product   of   the   Pilot    Bay    smelter  excepted."   To develop-our 'mines-we  rei-uiieo capital,   and   that   necessary  adjunct should be welcomed fiom every  country uud<-r the sun.    We owe it to  ourselves and in the   interests   of   the  province that,prompt steps be   taken  by Legislative enactment to have  the  output of our mines reduced in  smelting works erected north of the foity-  nintli parallel.   The   smelting   of  our      '  enormous deposits of mineral  should      ,  be     restricted   from   treatment  in   a  foreign country by an export duty' on      o  ore.   This may be considered a drastic  measure but it is the only  solution  of , '  the   problem.r   The   mines   are   being  chiefly'opened up* by foreigners.   So  long   as   no'    legislative    restrictions   .-  prevent the export of ores, so long will -  the output of our mines be reduced   in  foreign     territory    .and   the   benefits  accruing    from   the   employment > of  capital iind labor in the reduction   and"  it-fining of our ores-will   increase; the  wealth,   trade "and" prestige   of    the"  country that receives our products for.,  treatment. ,;jt'may'be   said   that  an  export duty on ore is drastic legislation '  and would have a tendency' to cripple   , '  development and   retard   the -invest-  ment of capital; nothing of the kind,  no foreigner has ever1 invested money    -  in   developing   our   mines, from   any,,- ,  othermotive than.procuring advantage,:'  and " the   same' motive  will - induce  capitalists to erect smelters   north of  the international line. ���������Care   can -he  taken that ample time be given' after  ���������the enactment of   an export.duty on    7  %i"e for the construction of'smelters, so*  that the development of our' mines   it   ���������  not hampered for smelting  facilitie*.

Thera  should be but one form of this name  in use 'throughout the northwest.  Which shall it bei"-,**       ' :  7  "Jbis is the first inkling we ha-re  had,' says Spokane Outburst, 'that tho  coining mining convention had <*ho  power to change the name of a country.  No doubt it would bo better il the  British Kootenay and the . Americ&Q  Kootenai were spelled alike but ��������� we  doubt very much if the Canadian govl  er-nment will consent to' have its name  of any of its domain changed even by  the convention, and surely the people  of Kootenay, in Idaho, will not consent to a change in the spelling of the  name of their country."���������Ex.     t  all   in-  which  The Advent of the Tinhorn.

In her pure and earnest  mind her mother's memory was enshrined  as that of a saint, and the thought that auy  one should take hor place eeemed a terrible  desecration. Even worse, however, did  this marriage appear when looked at from  the point of view of her father's future.  The widow might fascinate him by her  knowledge of .the world, her dash, her  strength, her uucouventiouality���������all these  qualities Clara was willing to allow her���������  but she was convinced that she would be  unendurable as a life companion.

How would a sensitive manlike  her father stand the constant strain of such  a wife���������a woman who ,was all deci3ion������  with no softness,1 and nothing , soothing' in  her nature ?

All  this would become unendurable to her  father when his first infatuation was past.  For his own*sake, then, as well as for her  mother's'memory, this match must be pre-,  'vented. 'And yet how powerltss she was  to prevent it ! What could she do? Could  Harold aid her? Perhaps.* Or Ida? At  least she would tell.lier sister,' and .see  what,-she could suggest.  Ida was in her boudoir, a tiny little  tapestried loom, as neat ami daiuty as  he-self, with low walls hung with Imari  placques, and with pretty little Swisa  brackets, bearing blue ,Kaga ware, or the  pure white Coalport chhi'u.

She sprang up as her*  and'thac, as far as possible, 'every woman  should qualify herself for some trade or  profession, choosing tor preference those  which have been hitherto been monopolized by men. To enter, the others would  only be to intensify the present competi-  'tion."  "Quite so. That is glorious!" Her  blue eye3 were dancing with mischief, and  she clapped her hands in her delight.  " What else ? She thinks that whatever a  man can do a woman should be allowed to  do also���������does she not?"'    , -  " She says so.'\ ���������  "And about dress?

The  doctor was becoming just a little ruffled. A turn in the open air would soothe  him, he thought. " Where are my boots?''  he asked.

Colonel Tynling, a few-days afterward,  received a reprimand from Wellington for  allowing''' his dandy officers to carry  umbrellas in tho face of the enemy, his  lordship observing that "Tl.e Guards may  in uniform, when on duty at St. James's  carry them if they please ; but in the field  it is not only ridiculous, but unmilitary.'  YOIWQ^FOLKS.  He Ran Too Fast.  Grandpa Bromley owned a little black  pony whioh was a source of much pleasure  to hia little granddaughter Grace. -Papa  Bromley's horses were all so largo, and  when she was at grandpa's visiting he often  allowed her to drive a little with her own  hands, much to her delight. * Papa considered Gracie too small to drive, for ahe  was only six years old, but grandpa said  she drove nicely, or would when she was  older. ,y She handled, the reins well now,  and he-guessed when she grew to be a 'big  girl he would .have to give her the pony.  Gracie talked about it a great deal.  One day when she and mamma drove  over to visit grandma, she was surprised to  find a little horse much smaller than the  pony running loose in grandpa's dooryard.  " O 1 mamma ! mamma ! she exclaimed,  " there's juat such a, little horse as I've  been wanting 1 I do believe grandpa got  it for me."  Gracie could  hardly, wait till  grandpa  came into the house to ask him about it.  " Why, I thought you wanted tho ponj.,  You   couldn't   drive   the colt," answered  grandpa,     i . ,  " Oyes, I could," repliod Gracie.' " He  is so cunning, I want him for my very  own.'! ,.      -,,  ,  Grandpa said he would see about it, aud  told Gracie to get'sjme sugar and they  would go out'tosee the colt: The little  colt was very friendly aud ate the sugar  from Grade's'hand., Then grandpa said  they must make the pony a visit, or he  would feel slighted, but somehow the pony  did not seem as,',interesting as usual f������r  Gracie was thinking,of the'colt nil the  time. But Gracie forgot all about the  colt when grandma called them to supper,  aud as she ran through the dooryard, in  her hurry to get there before grandpa, tho  colt, thinking she was playiug with him,  started after hor, and; how they both did  run. But Gracie got to the door first and  ran plump, into grandma's - outstretched  arms, crying, " I don't want the colt!  J'd rather have the pony ! Him runs so  fast!" '        ,  ���������'.       ,     '���������        '     '     '  The colt tried to follow Graeie' right  into the kitchen and graudma'had to push  him irom tho'doorslep and close tho door in  order to keep him out. Gracie lookedout  of'the window lo see if he had gone away,  but there he stood waiting, and" nothing  would induce, Graeio to open the door or  go out in the yard,while the oolt was  there, though grandpa told her that the  colt was only trying to play with her.

Ono day he was joined  on,the road by a, dog as'forsaken as 'him*  self, but who seemed desirous of becominc*  his companion.  ' Thty'jourued together to tho next town,  and entered the tavern tired, hungry and  penniless.' Not being troubled with the inconvenient refinement which conies from a  oug line of gentle ancestors, the man had  developed the quality known as cheek, >ao  he and tho dog s.it down to eat a supper for  winch they could not pay.  Tho room was full of loungers, and the  stranger took a conspicuous seat. _ "What  will you have ?" asked lhe only waiter tho  place employed ; and the order embraced  nearly everything on the bill of fare:1  "But. 1 want something for my dog, too,"  he added. "Ask him what he will have."  The waiter muttered something about,  "Watcher giving us," so the stranger said,  "What, don't you like to ? Well, Bruno,  will you hu vc boot" or fish '"      **  "Beef, every time," said Bruno, looking  with mild brown'eyes at tho waiter.  "And what to drink ?" ,  ."Water, thauk you," said  Bruno.'  By tins time the landlord and every ono  in  lhe place were eager   with suppressed  wonder,'and gathered about to hear a dog  talk. - o  The ventriloquiatfeigned indillference by  eating with avidity, while the landlord was  evidently consideringsomething. His cog.  itation resulted in his oiieriug tlie stranger  three hundred dollars for his wonderful  taking dog."   .  The ventriloquist appeared to hesitate a  moment,'then said abruptly, " Yes, you  may have him for three hundred dollars." .  When the money was paid and the ventriloquist was about to leave, he turned to  the dog, patted him affectionately and'said,  " Good bye, old fellow, you've been a good  friend to me." ��������� '  '.' You are no no friend of mine," returned tho dog, "to sell me to another iraster.  As you were mean enough to serve nie such  a trick, I'll have revenge. I'll never speak  another word as long as I live."  The ventriloquist then made off with all  possible haste.  ODD HAPPENINGS IN EUROPE.

I  hava no hesitation in recommending it to  anyone wno desiiea a novelty, writes' a  correspondent. , It might be imagined that  all (these i. people gathered together for  purely business purposes, and occupied  with no other considerations thau those  of cheap purchase and dear,'sale, . would  have small idea of dissipation.  This, however, is very far from being  ' the case. The great annual fair iB looked  upon by the Kussiaus as the onegreat  ojcasion for excitement and the lavish expenditure of money. Like most people  unaccustomed to be extravagant, they will  do this in the most foolish way, obtaining  a minimum of entertainment for a maximum of roubles. , ���������  Their only way of calculating amusement  is by the amount of money it costs. As  long us they succeed iu making something  of riu unusual display they do not mind  the cost. They will give their horses  buckets of'best champagne, light their j  .<��������� cigars with bank notea aud throw all,their  jewelry and,all the money they may.have  about them to a music tiall singer whose  voice and figure happen to take their  fancy. Tney are all unusually hard drink,  ers' and it is needless to add that most of  these' exploits are credited to them when  ���������'they are well ln'tneir cups.  As an instance   of   Russian ' ostentation  and extravagance the following   narrative  ���������   is very interesting :    While at the fair iu  ' '93   1   made  many friends  amongtho rich  merchant'princes.    I was treated royally,  and shall never torget my iirat introduction  to a live fair dinner to which I wasinvitea.  .-.,���������,     , a merchant's dixxkr party-.  Among other things,   I   was'discussing  i with a rich merchant the merits of Russian  '   pork compared with oura.and naturally held  that the latter was much finer, aud served  in better style for the table.    The Russian'  ' could not verbally convince me tn the contrary,  so ho invited nie to dinner the next  ,   day, saying : '��������� '<,'''  " I'll show you how, to serve  pork ; and  what's more, I'll teach you how we eat and  amuse ourselves at the fair."  - , Imagine a   thick-set,   heavy   Muscovite  *  with" apowerful and finely developed chest',  , broad  shoulders and   a   long   patriarchal  beard ; long coat reaching to within twelve  ���������* inches  of the<ground, his top boots   worn  ���������, over  the trousers, "and you will have the  picture of my host. ��������� t  At the appointed hour and place I found  a'uarty of ten'nssembied in response lo my  , host's invitation.    We were all seated'   at  our table in"the large public dining hall of  one  of   the many hotels.    At   one  end of  the hail    was    a , small     stage   wilh   a  piano ; - at  'the   other   a'  huge ' organ of  ' almost   cathedral si/.e,  let into the   wall,*-  This   is  woundup  after the fashion  of a  ,   musical box and   plays marches, .national  airs,and operatic'selections during, certain  intervals in theeveniug, while the stage is  occupied   between'times by chansonettes  of  all   nations   who sing 'iu their'  native  'languages./        '  1   ' '        l'KlS-OELY TIP3. /  These ' chausonettes receive from .the  hotel keeper only their board and lodging;  after her turn the chansouette goes around  aud makes a collection.     The money thus  > collected iB for herself, and if she,is pretty  and has a tine voice she can, during tne  month of 'the fair,. make a small fortune,  judging by ths amount my host, Ivan  Yasilijewitch Popov, gave away during  the evening to all the chansonettes. One  of them got a crisp 100 rouble note (S50),  and the remainder must have obtained  about 130,making in all '_\30 roubles ($125).  The Russian dinner itself is usolid aud  lengthy'a'dair 'and is always 'preceded by  , the "zakuska"or appetizer. This ceremony  consists of picking amorsel here and there,  and washing theseveral morselsdown with'  two oi* three glasses ot wodki.  These '"zakuskas" consist of a mass of  dishes ranged on a separate sideboard and  containing all kinds of   delicacies   such as  - anchovies, done up in various ways, sardines, shrimps, prawns, lobsters, hen lugs,  salmon, salads of all kinds, mm slices of  sausage, cucumbers, caviar and countloss  other viands which cover the whole of ihe  ' long sideboard.  A   HOG- ROASTED   WHOLE.   ,  Having gone through our preliminary  canter, we started oil al a fair pace, which  we kept up all the way through from 6  o'clock until midnight. Bur. the moment  that was lo crown all was evidently approaching, for I noticed great pieparations  being made'and the middle of tho table was  being cleared of all superfluous dishes,  ornaments, etc. At a given signal the  host arose, and what waa my amazement to  see an immense hog, weighing at least 300  pounds, brought in on a silver diah,roasted  whole,  Then followed my host's speech, the  substance of which was a worthy effort to  prove that^'RiissiauB know how to eat,  drink and spend their time." L  After dinner���������or, rather, after midnight  ���������wo retired to a private room, and here  the real fun' began. Each hotel has its  band of gypsies���������eight or ten handsome  girls and three or four men���������who sing  wild gypsy songs, intermingled with  barbaric screams and cries. They also  dance strange dances of their own. But  there are certain romances that you must  call upon tho women to sing���������soIt,plaintivo  melodies that bring tears to your eyes. An  hour's entertainment of this kind will cost  your host from loO to 2">0 roubles ; there  ia no fixed charge, aud the gypaies never  make their price ; they .know tho liberality of the Russian.  '  The whole idea of the gypsy entertainment is an absurd one. It is conceivable  that in the r own country, with appropriate  surroundings, their melodies might have  some piquancy and interest; but to see  these "wild children of the air" cooped up  within four walls, singing their national  airs, all impregnated with "freedom" and  '���������liberty," becomes almost grotosque.  wodki and pickled cucumbers. I have seen  many a man brought round by this "reviver," to begin again in another place.  When " the boat gets lively he begins  breaking the furniture, playing Aunt Sally  with the crockery, dancing on the piano  and upsetting the waiter wilh an overloaded tray. He will smash all the mirrors  in the house, and finally upset the table  with all the plates, dishes, bottles, etc,3 on  it. This concludes the evening's entertainment. He will then ask "for the damages."  , PAYIKG THE DAMAGES.  When the bill is brought in he carefully  reads over every, item aloud, aud makes  comments upon 'each, something in this  way: '  'f'Fifty bottles of champagne, 500 roubles.  Ah 1 jea ; it was capital���������the luest I ever  tasted !    That's right \ ^  " Five bottles oi Boda water, 50 kopecks.  What! 10 kopecks a bottle of soda ? Exorbitant ! Preposterous ! Why, I can get a  bottle any day for 5 kopecks. I won't pay  such a price !    No, air ! '  " To breaking piano, 150 roubles. Yes,  that's correct. What did you think of the  dance,' gentlemen ?

The merchant very seldom'goes to bod  before'4 or .**��������� o'clock in the morning, and  gets up at 9 o'clock, to commence business.  At 5 or 6 in the afternoon he finishes his  business, aud recommences" the same life  over again.

Uses of the Green and Purple Plum.  , The plum, although not so popular or so  healthful as its' sister peach, is an attractive and delicious dessert fruit, when in  perfection, while its rich flavor' commends  it for puddings, pies and conserves.  , English plum tart is a'favorite dish wilh  our cousins over the water. 'Either blue  plums or ripe green gages are used. When  stemined'and Stoned fiU'with them a shallow-pudding dish, sprinkle well with  sugar and cover'with a rich'pie, "cr'ast,  cutliug'.slits in the pastry that the steam  may escape. Bake in a moderate oven.  When ready for the .table lift oil'tho crust,  lay' it upside down on a large plate, pour  ,out tlie plums upon it and smother all in  whipped cream.      .      '  j Preserved Greengages.���������Of. all varieties  the little round greengage is perhaps" the  best liked for doing up. They are of course  never skinned, but for preserving should  be 'pricked, with a needle. The usual  allowance of 1 lb of sugar and 1' pint of  water 'to each lb of fruit' is used, The  water aud sugar are boiled together until  clear, all scum being skimmed carefully off  as it rises to the surface. When translucent  drop in the plums, putting in only as many  at a time as the kettle will'conveniently  hold,* and cook for 20 minutes. ,Tako out  aud lay on platters to cool. 'Proceed thus  with each kettleful until all are done, when  pack iu smo.ll cans, pour the boiling syrup  over them and sea). ' ,  - Damson Jam.���������Though damsons are not  an eating plum, they possess a richnesa  that makes them particularly acceptable  for jam and jelly. Stone and weigh the  fruit and stew it 20 minutes. Add A lb  sugar for each pound and cook gently for  an hour lonaeror until of the proper consistency. Can while hoc in small receptacles.  'Plum jelly is nice and is'rather uncommon. Place the plums in a colauder and pour  boiling water over them. Then put m a  preserving kettle with just sufficient water  to cover them and boil until quite soft and  all the juice is extracted. Pour off the  liquid, strain it and set back on the fire to  cook. Weigh out 1 lb of sugar for every  pint of juice and spread it on ahallow pans  set- ini-tho oven. Let it heat until the  liquid has boiled 20 minutea, when add it  to the mixture and stir constantly until ill  ia dissolved. Remove at once from tho  fire and fiil bowls or glasses that have been  immersed in hoi water to prevent breaking.  Lay rounds of paper dippod in brandy on  top and seal up securely;  ��������� Piekled Damsons.���������This recipe, secured  from an old housekeeper, is for damsons,  but other plums may be used by scanting  the quantity of sugar if thoy are of a  Bweeter variety. To 10 lbs of damsons take  5 lbs of sugar," 2J pints vinegar, 1 table-  spoonful of cloves, and S small sticks of,  cinnamon. Boil ' all together for fifteen  minutes. Remove the fruit and boil the  syrup quarter ot an hour longer. Put up  the same as preserves.  Hints.  Vaseline makes the best dressing for  russet shoes. '  Soft newspaper is excellent to cleanse  wiudowa or any glasswaie.  Spirits of turpentine is tho thing with  which to cleanse and brighten patent  leather.  Cold tea sldanaes paint better than soap  and water, unless the paint is white, when  milk is better.  I������ the hair is thin and dry rub well two  or three times a week with a mixture of  sixty grains of quinine to an ounce of  vaseline.  To keep tortoise-shell oombs bright rub  them after each wearing with 6oft leather.  When they become dim, clean with rotten  stone and oil applied with chamois.  Rubber can ritgs which havo become  hardened can be made pliable and elastic  by soaking them fifteen to thirty minutea  in two parts of water and one ammonia.  Sometimea-there are ridges iu the glass  which prevent cans being hermetically  sealed with rubber rings ; apply over the  place a little putty or a cold paBte of flour  and water.  A medical journal recommends, as a  means for saving the eyes from tho offeota  of contiuuoua use ia sewing, typesetting,  reading, etc.,a habit of looking up from the  work at short intervals and glancing  about the room. This practised every ton  or fifteen minutes, relieves the muscular  tention, rests tho eyes, ond makes the  blood supply much better.  :A SHOE-BLACKING CABINET.  Tills Handy anil Cheap Cabinet Should Be  Iu Every Home.  This cabinet can be easily made by  anyone who can handle tools at all, is very  neat in appearance and handy in application, and costs almost nothing to build.  As will be seen in the illustrations, it folds  against the wall of the kitchen, when not  in use, being" fastened in position by an  ordinary "spring bolt. 'When it is to, be  used it opens out as shown in the illustration exposing the brush, blacking and  dauber, and making a platform on which  the foot rests while iu use.    The cabinet is  FIG I.

Variety in Diet.  A number of facts conspire to throw a  somewhat new light on questions of dietetics, or at least to show that these problems  are more complex than they have been by  some supposed. It may be usual to. speak  of a "mixed diet," meaning thereby one  composed in part of'animal and in part of  vegetable food, one containing proteids,  fats and carbohydrates, approximately in  such proportions as ihey are required by  the organism ; but wheu we see the effect  upon disease produced by very small quantities of certain selected portions of animals  commonly used as foo 1, such as thyroid  gland, suprarenal gland aud bone marrow,  the suspicion arises that these are but "the  more pionounced expressions of a widespread principle, and that such marked differences in therapeutic effect between  certain organs may be associated >' with  similar differences in nutritional value  between the various portions and kinds of  meat which we consume. -Wo may surmise,  (too, that the aiode* ,of preparation may  have a considerable influence, and that  while good cooking may be,as il should be,  a preparation for unil an aid to digestion,  certain processes iu'eooking may do much  more harmj,6 the nutritional value of our  food than is explained by the mere change  in its physical* properties, the- hardness,  muchness, etc., which tney produce.^ The  destruction of the antiscorbutic' properties  oi milk by condensing,' overcooking and  sterilization is * case in, point, aud we  commend to the British farmer the interesting question whether and how far .the  prolonged freezing of meat may interfere  witn its finer nutritional value. Healthy  men,'who have a great reserve of digestive  power, can'derive nutriment from almost  any iood, but for people of feebler frame a  mixed diet must mean one in which,vanety  tof substance eviats of whose nature' and of  whose differences inter ne we as yet know,  nothin'g.' The healthy man/'by, taking  plenty, finds among it what he wants, but  until we kcow much more than we do of  lhe���������vaiue of different foods and different  modes of cooking, we must at least afford  variety to our invalids, and, protect them  from a'monotony in diet which may perchance be debarring them froni the ,ono  thing needful for their nutrition.  no,  FOLDED.  screws.^ Buy a small spring bolt and attich  to the front after it is folded, as shown in  Fig 2, and nail a block of wood on the front  of the platform, to bring the foot a little  above the surface so that the brush can be  used conveniently. Place the open cabinet  against tho wall at such a heignt that the  platform is level, and fasten it with 2-inch  Fcrows through the sides of the box. When  in working order take'it off to be stained  and varnished to suit. Drive nails or screws  in the wall at the back'for hanging lhe  utensils, leaving room for tho foot-block.

Injuries to the head may be divided into  three classes : those which affect the scaln  o *-  ���������alone, those by which the skull ia -fractured, *and' those by which the brain itself is  damaged to a greater or leas degree.  Inasmuch .as the records of. the Civil  ,,War, in which are accounts of thousands  of cases, are in favor of stitching all soalp  wounds,1 they receive a doctor's 'care as  soon as possible,  ,  A3 a rule, injuries to the' scalp, if carefully looked after, will repair at once, -but  if neglected they are exceedingly difficult  of nrunugoment.. If the_ injury is extensive,  the hair should be removed'for 'a short  distance around, and a clean .cloth soaked  in icowater should be placed over the^-part  while waning for the physicinu,    "  ,  Since shock may accompany the slightest  injury to any part of the body,-it is difficult to say at once whether a patient, in a  condition of collapse from a heaa'wound,  is suffering from a fracturo of the skull,  with pressuro of the fragments upon tho  brain,or has sustained'simply a'concussion.  As a rule, however, cases of extensive  fracture aro attended by a more profound  degree ot colhpse than those of simplo  concussion. The patient is totally insensible to everything, even to the utmost  efforts made to arouse him.'  Fractures of the base of the skull, which  are almost invariably fatal, may be at-'  tended with bleeding from' the ears aud  nose or mouth. ,  In all injuries to the head, the patient  should be kept in a state ot complete  quiet. Iced water should be kept constantly about the head, and the room  should be soniewh.it darkened. Trie  diet should be low in proportion to^ the  severity of lhe case,but always nourishing.  The head should be elevated, placed upon  rather firm pillows instead of soft ones.  The dressing about the head should be just  enough to support and protect the wound  from draughts of cold, without being heating. ' ���������  No injury to the head, however slight,  should be regarded as unimportant, since  almost any such injury is liable to b*) com-  phuued with mischiet to the brain. For  this reason every wound of the head should  receive careful attention at the hands of a  competent physician.     *  .   A Strain on the Eyes.       ���������  One of the common causes .of pain above,  the brows is the .overuse of the ej es and  the strain of accommodation in constantly  looking at near objects. In ils traiiMcnt  form it may bo familiar to some as the  result of a visit to a picture gallery ; it is  oven more readily excited and permir.ently  established among the children at the  board schools, and the girls at the high  schools. Seventy-two per .cent, of tne  children of to-day are said to be sufferers  from defective eyesight, generally in the  direction of difficulty in seeing near  objects clearly. Heidaehe is almost always  present in the cases of the poor lutle  creatures, whoso bodies are statvod while  their,minds aro overfed iii the scramble for  educational grants. (  The ocular headache is often co-existent  with the anaemic headache, especially in  growing girls ; here we find frontal or  Burpraorbital pain, duo to eye strain  associated with the vertical piin felt ull  over the top of tho nead, which is characteristic * ot bloodleasnt'ss. Plontv of  wholesome food ,fresh air, and out-of-door  exorcise will help to combat the anaemia ;  whilo the practice of looking at diatant  objeolB, ami, alas ! the use of appropriate  spectacles, may relieve the headache of  eyo-strain ; but reading, writing, and  sewing will permanently damage the sight,  so that for the sake of education, and in  tho struggle for life, tho coining race is  growing up purblind.

Perhaps the most interesting' feature of  a  new south African   guide book  ia   the  account it gives of  game   in that   region,  South Africa is said to   ha%e been   at  one  time the richest region   for  big  game  in  the world.    There has been a vast change  since, though the hunting is still  probably  the best to be found in any   civilized   part  of the globe. The true qua^ga has been er.  terminated, while the black wildebeest and  tho bontebok'are preserved to Cape Colony  only   through   the   efforts   of    individual  farmers.    In  the  west,   in   the   Kalahari  Desert, and the lowlands of the east const,  the sable antelope, the roan  antelope,   the  \        i-ii  gemabok, the  elund, the  wildebeest, and  the giraffe are still found. The antelope,  the zebra, the Cape buffalo, the lion, the  rhinoceros, the leopard, the hyena, and,  at times of migration, the elephant, -.re  found in the valley of the Zambesi.  The most accessible hunting grounds are  in the east and northeast of the Tr:in*vaal  Republic, the Portugeeso territory" alonst  tho Pungwe Iii^er, the country north and  northwest of Fort Salisbury and the Kala, .  hari Desert.' These regions are ail fir from'  any points ot tho coast au'd frorr towns and  cities known by namo on this aide, of thc  world.

It has been  suggested that the.region be made a' game  preserve for tho public. ���������>,  , '  The hunter is advised to carry flannel  shirts, moleskin jackets and breeohea, or  shooting suits of gabardine, thick slocking!  leather gaiters, asott felthat, two Kharkee  shirts, A heavy, overcoat,1,two pairs of  well-nailed shooting iboois, two pairs of  half-Wellingtons, warm, Btrong gloves, a  waterproof ground sheet to sleep on and  four blankets. ,, , All these things aiid  .whatever else may be needed may be  boughtnt KlinbeTrly,Pretoria, or Mafeking. ,  Loosely made <'clothingyof cashmere ia'  recommended for tho hot regiona, and  headgear to protect tho back from the sun  morning and evening is needed" The South  American poncho Tia "excellent for'bad  weather.

"The humors drive'  into the game country with' a,tent-wagon *  and a team of froni'sixteon to eighteeuoxen.  A water cart is a good.ihmg to take along,  especially in the Kalahari desert.

The natives say there are thiee  sorts of lions in South Africa���������the white,  the red,' aud tho gray necked���������tho last  being the most savage. But natuialists do  not make these -distinctions. The full,  growu lion is about-twelve teet from the  tip of .the nose to tho end of the tail, and  weighs from 400 to 500 pounds. He  should be shot between the eye^s orxlose to  the looi of the tail. It iB said that the  shoulder shot, even though it pierce the  heart, does not always prevent (  ' THE   I*AT.\L Sl'lll.y),  A shot lhat broaks the shoulder  is   disab  line ' '  The leopard is usually, called the tiger in  South Africa. Both he and the cheetah,  often confused with the leopard, are fine  game for the hunter, but tho cheetah,being  easily killed'is. almost extinct save in  Central Africa" The elephant is practically  extinct tor the purposes of the hunter  south of the Kiver Limpopo, and nearly so  soutn of the Zambesi, save on the east  coast along the Puugwo River. ��������� It is  sit icily protected iu the Transvaal and  further south. ' Mining operations have  driven the elephants from the Kuyaa  region, as thc creatures particularly deteBt  the noise ef blastmi!, as indeed any other  loud or sharp sound. When thoy occasionally uespasB on South African roads they  can be driven off by tho crack of a whip.  The South African elephant can seldom bo  killed by the forehead shot, for he lacks  the soft spot there mat makes lhat the*,  falal shot for the Asiatic elephant. .

The black rhinocoros has the  same habitat as the'.elephant, but is extremely hard io find. The hippopotamus is  still found neat tho mouth of the Orange  River in Cape Colouy, in the const streams,  of Zululand, and plentifully in tho streams  of Portuguese South Africa, in tho remoter  parts of Mashonaland, in the upper waters  of the Zambesi, and in Lake 'Ngami.

THE GREAT,YACHT RACE-
 ^^ i*
Defender Wins the First, Race, is Given
the Second, and Goes Over the
Course Alone for the Third.   ���
No event in the history of the sport
has ever exceeded the interest  shown
' in the first race of the 1S95  series   for
America's dip, sailed' off   New   \ork
lust  Saturday.     Since   the   Vigilant
defeated the Valkyrie in  1SA3   the   international contest hiw been kept well
in uiirnl and   the enthusiasm  displayed was merelv the outcome oi the pent-
up feeling of'the   past   year   or   two.
The course was 15 miles to windward
and return.    A *->pl��i��lM >tart was had,
,tli'e   Valkvrie crossing the   line   lour
bei-hii(K ahead of Defender, and it was
nip and tuck from the first signal   gun
to within a Khorl ilislanc-e of the mark.
Then Defender caught the bree/.e and
to thedelightof lliecountlessthousands
of sp.-ct-ilors, simply sailed away from
her rival.   She went on increasing her
lead from that moment .and won  by 8
minutes and -10 seconds.     ,  <
THE SECOND  BACK.
The only effect of the defeat on Sat-
" urday was to make the Britishers more
determined to win when the second
race was called on Tuesday. It was a-
do-or-die case and for the first time, m
the history of American yachting an
English boat showed' the way at the"
finish to a'cup-deiendbr. rt" was the
Valkyrie's race by 47 seconds. But the
Defender had sailed under protest,
' claiming to have been crpwded at the
start by hei*.opponent to'which was
attributed the loss of her topmast.
Before thc cup ' committee Defender
made her protest' stick and was
awarded tho race. <
1 THE THIRD RACK,
which was sailed on Thursday, proved
a regular fiasco.'    Valkyrie had pro-
'   tested against   the- crowding of   excursion craft about   the shirting line
At the first two races,  and, owing to
the outcome of the second race, Dun-
raven notified the committee that he
would not race her again if the interference, thus occasioned could not be
'suppressed.   Consequently,   when  the
'    gun was fired for the third event, Val-
'kyrie went over the line to give Defender a start and then  turned back,
"     lowered her canvas, and was taken m
Ko her moorings Defender sailed
over thc course alone and was aw aided
the trophy. ' The   result, has   caused
geat dissatisfaction   both   in   Europe
and -'America.      The    consensus    of
opinion, even  in  England,  appea * to
be that Defender^ a faster.boat than

A   WORLD   BEATER.
All Previous Records Broken by the
��� ��� N. Y. Central Railway. .,
Since the recent speed performances
of the English west coast and east
coast railroad between London and
Aberdeen, which showed the remarkable feat of covering 540 miles in 538
minutesj officials of   the   New "York
Central have been studying the figures.
The best long distance .run in, the
United States was made byj.be Empire
state express over the New York
Central-in 1S91 when 436i miles were
covered in 439i minutes," while the
actual time was nearly fifteen minutes
less. fThis train has kept up a remarkable rate of speed in its daily 'runs
ever since and notwithstanding the
Atlantic'coast line,and Southern have
both created recordb'in long distance
running, ther-' Central's' phenomenal
time isregarded as unrivalled for the
distance cotered. William Buchanan,
superintendent of motive power of the
New York Central, | stated he had'
demonstratedthe'feasibility of .reducing the present running time of the
flyer between New York and Buffalo,
and tho officials of the road decided to
make the attempt. ,       '
Accordingly, on   Wednesday   morning last, a train consisting   of  a'combination   smoking   and   baggage   car,
two   coaches   and    the   private     car
Marquita, the total weight of which is
358,310 pounds, was made up  at   the
Grand Central depot, New York,   and
pulled out .'it    "):-10.30.     Albany ' was
reached at'7:54.55���-143 miles .in   134
minutes 55 seconds.    There was a one
minute stop for a change   of   eng'ties.
���The   llyer   arrived    at   Syracu-.e     at
10:17.10.      No.'   903    with     Charles
Hog.in,1 uiiief locomotive   superintendent nf the Falls div isiun, af the throttle,
took the train at this point,    and    the
83     miles     between    Syracuse    and
Rochester   were,  reeled   off    in     73
minutes.      The   following     despatch
from Jiuii'.ilo gives the   conclusion    of
the run���:     ���'The N.Y.C. tlyer   arrived
at the   Centriil    station,'   Buffalo,    at
12:40 p.m., having made the  distance
from New York to Buffalo, -140 miles,
in seven hour-.    This breaks   all   long
