Springs cluring tlie T   '
Season of 1895.'
This camp is at present in a very
satisfactory condition. It is especially
lively in the Washington basin and
around Cody and Sandon in fact,, the
Iasfc named place may fairly claim to
?be "booming."
The Nakusp & Slocan and the Kaslo
& Slocan railways, generally regarded
as rivals, have met at Sandon and have
already had several lively encounters
in the way of piilling up tracks and
knocking down warehouses, hut it is
exported the matters will shortly he
settled aud both mads kept busy hauling out ore arid bringing in machinery
and supplies.
Milling men, who me competent   to
judge say that ufc least. , lo.OOO   tons   of
ore will be shipped   from   the   Slocan
... '       '
this winter-. r. ,
Thri'e Forks, although practically
sidetracked by both railway?, still
possesses considerable vitality, and
perrnanent residents claim ,that there
is enough mineral on the Noith Fork
of Carpenter creek to ensure the permanency of their town.
The residents- of New Denver- are
wintering very quietly but are now
more confident' about the future of>
their town than at any period for two
years hack.' Properties on the' lake
shore are now being bonded or sold'
and several hundred promising dry
ore prospects near the lake are to he
opened up by assessment and development work next summer.
At the bend of the lake Hill Bros,
are cutting, sawing and piling some
very fine lumber, evidently preparing
for more lively times.
" Judge " Wilson presides at -"Rose-
hery and is pretty sure that Rosi^bery
will remain as now���the shipping' port
of, the Slocan lake.
Silver-ton'is, at 'present '���dead" but
may soon be alive again if there is
truth,in the ruiiior that' the JCaslo &
Slocan railway is to be extended and
will .touch   the   Slocan   lake   at   that

^On Four Mile creek eight men sire
working on the "Alpha," and Poph.im
"& Webb are about-to "ship .two- i��r-.
loads of higli" grade dry ore froms^the
" Fisherm'aideri " claim'. The "Uurrie,"
on the,," Galena Farm", bench below
Silver-ton, is now opened''up in good
shape and is 'for sale or bond.
The " Cnri-ie," at a depth of 65 feet,
shows eight feet' of concentrating
galena ore and being a crown-granted
property would be suitable for a company able to put up a concentrator.   ,
OnEight Mile creek, several fine
properties are, unfortunately,''lying
idle, the owners being either unable to
work them for want of means, or are
"waiting for semethtng to turn up."
The "Enterprise" group, on Ten
Mile creek, under bond to Mr. J. A.
Finch, is showing up well, therefore,
rt-is-ahnost certain the bond will be
taken.up and ore shipped before spring.
The "KalNpel" claim, also tin Ten
Mile creek, was recently sold for*$3,000,
cash down, to an American company
represented by Mr. L.-triltier, who
proposes to put/'in Siveral thousand
dollars worth nf'development'work
hoping to make it one of the big inines
of this camp. The ledge matter' on the.
surface is il feet across anil contains
scattered hi.riches of high grade ruby,
silver- ore.   ,

Sam Whittaker, Tom Muhie.y and
.-.everal others are living at the south
end of the lake and report that duck
shooting iii the Slocan valley is good
as usual but that the deer are being
chaned south by the wolves.
On Springer creek," seventeen men
are working on claims located last, fall,
and 11 twelve ton shipment of dry 'ore
has been iiiade to the Pilot Bay smelter.
Five tons from the "Exchange 'Ir-fand
seven" tons from the "Howard
Fraction V claims. The''ore is expected
to average at least $150 per ton.
Mr.'H. P. Heacot'k, a general coti actor and mining man from ' Helena,
Montana, inspected , this distiict last
week and took away with him terins
of sale on tlie "Arlington," "Tamarack"
and "Currie" claims. ,-     "
The C.P.R. is quoting,' the rate of
$11 per ton on ore' from Roseber'y to
the Tacoma sriieltei. This, rate applies
to small .shipments and' will induce
many of the claim owners to make
ti-ial shipments next season.
It is reported here that Mr. Kellie,
M.P.P., will, at the next session of
the ^Provincial Legislature, endeavor
to have a clause inserted into the
wHl, it is hoped,
business  of   claim
The Fish Creek Camp���A New
for the N.E. Arm.

general cessation of mining operations
in tlie Fish creek district, but work of

' Trails are badly wanted Iie-n. In
fact little can' be done ,until' trunk
tiails are constructed. Tint want
could lie supplied at a comparatively
small outlay on the part of the government, and it. is to he hoped that aa .
aderpiatu appropriation will be made
for this purpose. Those interested
hero feel I hat they'are not asking too
much, an no district in Weal Koot-
enny lias received >o little assistance

A report was received late this after-

Arrow had been seen on the north

Arrow is a small screw steamer plying
on Upper Arrow Lake. She left Arrowhead Thursday afternoon with a

Thomson's Landing. No particulars
have been received but it is supposed
that she was endeavoring to put out.

Premier Greenway Presents the Prairie
Province With a Genera] Election.
Premier Green way's Christinas   box
to tlie people of-Manitoba is a general
election and, while   it    caused - general
surprise,  it   did    not   give    universal
satisfaction to the people of the prairfc
province.    This is especially   the   case
with the adherents of tiie conservative
opposition who are ill prepared for   an
appeal   to, the   country.      The    nominations will be  held on   January    Sth
and the voting takes place on the 15th.

the inevitable excitement will be of so
short   duration.    The   people   will   be
again   asked   to   pronounce   upon   the

���   CHAPTER Xy^
Now, all this time,' while the"~tragi'
'.mcdy of life was being'played iu these
suburban villas, while on a' commonplace
stage love Hnd humor and fears aud lights
and shadows were bo swiftly succeeding
one another, aud while these three families,
driited together by fate, weie shaping one
another's desliniee aud working out in their
own fashion the strange, intricate ends of
' human li'e, there were human eyes which
watched over every stage of tho performance, ind- which wero keenly critical of
every ac',or on it. Across the road, beyond
the green palings and the close-cropped
lawn', behind the curtains of their creeper-
framed windows, sat the two old ladies,
.Mies bertha and Miss Monica Williams,
looking out as from a private box at all
that wns being enacted before thorn, The
growing friendship of the three families,
the engagement-of Harold Denver with
Clara Walker, the engagement; of ^Charles
Westma'coct with her sister, the dangerous
fascination which the widow exercised over
the doctor, the preposterous behavior of
the Walker girls, and the' unhappineas
which they had caused their father, not
one of these iuciuents'eBcaped the notice of
t.ie two maiden ladies. Bertha, the
younger, had ' a Bmile or ft sigh for the
lovers ; Mouic.i, the elder, a frown or a'
shrug for the elders. Every night they
. talked over what they had seen, and' their
own dull, uneventful life took 'a warmth
and a coloring from-their neighbors' as a
blank wall reflects a beacon lire. o
And now it was destined that 'they
should experience the one keen sensation
of their later years,'the one memorable
incident from which all tuture incidents
should bo dated. i.
It was on tho very night which succeeded
tho events which have just b'een;uarruted,
' when suddenly'into Monica Williams' head,
as she tossed upon  her sleepless bod,there
shot a thought which made, her sit up with
athrill and a gasp.
'"Bertha,"   said ,she,   plucking   at    the
,   shoulder of her sister, "I have left the front
window open." -
"No, Monica, surely not."'Bertha sat up
also aud thrilled in sympathy.
'"lam sure of it.    You remember'1 had
forgotten   to water  the'pots,   and   then I
opened   the   window, and Jane called  me
, about the jam.and I have never been in the
room since." ���
"Good gracious, Monica, it is a mercy
that we have not boen murdered iu out-
beds I There was a house broken into at
Forest Hill last week. Shall we go down
and shut it?" '    <��� "
"1 dare not go down alone, dear ; bi>.i if
you   will   come   with'me.    Put'.on   your
' slippers   and, dressing-gown.     We do uot
need a candle.    Now, Bertha, we will go
down together."
���> Two little white patches moved vaguely
through the darkness, the stairs creakO'd,
the door whined, and ,they were at the
front-room window. Monica closed n
gently down aud fastened the snib.  .
"What a beautiful moon !"' said she,
looking out. "We can see as clearly as it
it were day. How peaceful and quiet the
three homou are over yonder I It seems
q-uite sad to see that -To Let' card upon

number three, with her thortskirts and her
suake. But, *oh, Bertha, look ! look \ !
look ! I !" Her voice had fallen suddenly
to a quivering whisper, and..-he was pointing to tlie Westmacott's house. Her sister
gave a casp of horror and 6tood with a
clutch oil Monica's ami, staring in the
same direction.
" Good heavens I" gasped Bertha. "It is
a burglar I"
But her sister set her mouth grimly and
shook her head. " We shall see," sne
whispered. " It may be something worse."
Swiftly and furtively trie man stood
suddenly erect 'and uecau to pusn the
window slowly up. Then he put one knee
upon the sash, gh.uced around to see that
all was safeand climbed over incc the room.
As he did so he had to push the blind a-irie.
Then tiie two spectators , saw where tne
light came from. Mrs. Westmacott was
standing as rigid as a statue, in the centre
of the loom, wnh the lighted taper in net
right hand. For au instant they cauch'.'a j
ghmpie of Iter -stern face and her winter ]
collar. Tlien the blind fell back in position,
and trie two figures disappeared from their

Monica. " That dreadfui, drtadrul,woman .'

your own eyes, sister lierthi !"
"Hush, dear ; hush and listen ;'" said tier
mou- etin.rit.ible companion. Tney pitched

Then  only did  ihciKoold  limes understand    mat   they had looked, on   while   a

said Charles, looking up.  "Do tell me how
bhe is and wnat I should do."
Dr. Walker knelt beside her, and passed
his left hand over her head,while iie grasp-
ed her pulso with the right.
"She has,had a terrible blow," said he.
"It must have been with some blunt
weapon. .Here is the place behind the ear.
But she is a woman of extraordinary physical powers. Her,pulse is full and slow.
There is no sterlor. It is my belief that
she is merely stur.ued, and that she is in
no danger ot all."
'�� Thank God for that !''
" We must get her to bed. We shall
carry her upstairs, aud then I shall send
my girls into her.  But who has done this!"
" Some robber," "said Ctiarles. " You
see that thu window is open. She must
have heard liim and como down, for she
was always perfectly fearless. 1 wish to
goodness etio had called me."
" But she was dressed." ' ,
" Sometimes she sits up very late."
"1 did Bit up very late,",said a voice.
Sho had opened her eyes and was blinking
at them m the lu-iplight. "A villain
came in through, tne window aud struck
me,with a life-preserver. You can tell the
police so when, they come. Also that he
was a little fat 'man. Now, Chailes, give
me your arm and I shall'go upstairs." ',
But her spirit was greater than her
strength, for as she staggered to her feet
her head swam around, and she would have
fallen again had her nephew not thrown'
his arms around hor. They carried her
upstairs umong them and laid her upon
the bed, where the doctor watched beside
hor, while Charles wont off to the police'
station and the Delivers mounted guard
over the frightened maids.
Day had broken before the several denizens of The Wilderness had all returned to
their homes, the police finished their inquiries, and all come buclt to its normal
quiet. Mrs. Westmacott had been left
sleeping peacefully with a small chloral
dm ught lo sceady her nerves, and a handkerchief soaked in airiica bound round her
bead. It was with borne surprise, therefore, that the Admiral received a note from
her about 10 o'clock asking him to be good
enough to step in to her. He hurried in,*
rearing that she might have taken borne
turn for the worse,but he was reassured to
find her sitting up in her bed,0wiih Clara
and Ida Walker in attendance upon her.
She had removed the handkerchief and had
put on a little cap with pink ribbons and a
marcon dressing-jacket daintily lulled at
the neck and sleeves.      >
" My dear friend," said she.as he eutei-
ed, " I wish unmake, a last few remarks
to you. No, no," she continued, laughing
as she saw a look of dismay upoii his face.
" I shall nor. dream of, living for at least
another thirty yeare. A woman should.be
ashamed lo die before she is' seventy. 1
wish, Clara,' that you would ask your
father to step up. And you, Ida, just pass
me my cigaiettes, and open meia bottle of
stout." -" ,'   ' ��. '
" Now, then," she continued, as'the
doctor joined the party. " I don't quite
know what I ought to say to you, Admiral.
You want some very plain speaking to."
" Pou my word, ma'am, I don't know
what you are talking about."
" The idea of you at your age talking
about going to sea,' and leaving that dear,
patient little wife of yours at'home, wno
has seen nothing of you ail her life ? It's
ail very well for you. You have the life,
the change and tho excitement, but you
don't think of her eating her iieart outj'u
a dreary London lodging. You men are
all the same."' <
" Well, ma'am, since you know so much,
you probably' know also that I have sold
my pension.-' How am I to live if I do uot
turu my mind to work ?"
Mrs. -Westmacott produced a large
registered 'envelope from beneath tne
i-heets and to==ed it over to the old .seaman.
���' That excuse won't do.   Tnere are'your
pension papers.   .Ju=t see if they are right."
He broke tne sea.1 and out tumbled  the
very papers wn-.cn   he  had made  over to
MeAdim two diy�� before.
" But what <un I to do with these now?"
he crieo, iti t.ewilderment.
' " Ycr. wiil put mem in a safe place, or
get a inend to do eo, and, if you do your
duty, you wi'.l go to your wife and beg her
pardon for !i..'ini! even for an instant

Tne Admiral passed ,hw hand over hi" 1

1 held some money in trust for him. I
suppose tobacco will not harm my head,
doctor t Thank you ; then I shall trouble
you for the matches, Ida." She lighted a
cigarette and leaned back upon the pillow,
with' the blue wreaths curling from her
"I cannot tel! you how often he has
attempted to get that money from me. He
has bullied,' cajoled, threatened, coaxed,
done all that a man could do. I'still
held it., with the presentiment that a
need for- it would come. When I heard
of this villainous bueitiess, his flight, and
his leaving his partner to faco the storm,
above all, that my old friend had been
driven to surrender his pension in order to
make up for my brother's defalcations, 1
felt- that now indeed I had a need for it.
I sent Charles yesterday to Mr. McAda.m,
and his client, upon hearing the, facts of
the case, very graciously consented to give
back the papers and to take the money
which he had advanced. Not a word of
thanks to me, Admiral. I toll you that ir,
was very cheap benevolence, for it was all
done with his own money, and how could I
use it butler? , ,,
"I thoiiL'lit that I should probably hear
from him soon, and I did. Lust evening
there was,.handed in a note of the usual
whining, cringing tone.' He had come
buck from abroad at the risk of his life
ami liberty, just in order that he might
say good-by to the only sister ho over
had, and to entreat my forgiveness for
any pain which he had caused mo." He
would never trouble me again, and he
bogged only that 'I would hand -over to
him the sum which I held iu trust for him.
That, with what he had already, would be
cuough lo start him as an honest man in thu
new world, when ho would ever remember
and pray for the dear sister who had been
his savior. That w��s the style of the letter,
and it ended by imploring me to leave the
window-latch open, and to be in tho front
room at three in the morning, when he
would come to receive my last kiss and bid
me1 farewell.      , '   ���
"Bad as he was. BI could'not when he
trusted me,' betray him. I said nothing,
but 1 was there at the hour. He entered
through the window, and implored me to(
give him the money, HS was terriblv
changed, gaunt, wolfish, and spoke like a
madman. I told turn that I had spent,the
money. He gnashed his teeth at me, and
swore it^was his money. I told him that I
hud spent it on him. He asked me how. I
said in trying to make hi.-n an ' honest man
'and iu repairing'the results of his villainy.
i!e shrieked out a curse, and pulling some-
thingout of thebroastof his coat���a loaded
stick, I think���he struck me with it, and I
remembered nothing more." .     '  ' '
" The blackguard !" cried- tho doctor ;
" but the police must be hot upon his
track." '   ,     '
" I fancy not,"' Mis. Westmacott answered, calmly. " As my brother is a
particularly tall, thin niau, and as the
police are looking for a short, fat one, I do
not think it is very prohable'that they will
catch him. ' It is best, I think, that these'
little tamily matlora should be adjusted in
private." ., ,      , ,   '
"My dear'ma'am,'.!<6aid the Admiral, "if
it, is indeed this man's money that has
brought buck my pension, then I can have
no scrupie about takings it.' You have
brought sunshine upon us, ma'am when, the
clouds were at their"darl;est,for here is my
boy who insists upon returning the money
which 1 got. , He can keep it now to pay
his debts. For what you mvve done I can
only ask God to bless you, ma'am, and as
lo thanking you, I can't even"���
" Then pray don't-try" said the widow.
" Now run away. Admiral, aud make
your peace with Mrs, Denver. I am sure
if i \\ere she it would be along time before I should lorgive you. As for me, I
am going to America when Charley goes.
You will take me so far won't you, Ida?
Tnere is a colleae being built in Denver
wnicii is lo equip the womau of the future for the struggle of life,'and especially for her battle against man. Some
months ago'the committee offered me a
responsible situation upon the statr, and I
have decided now to accept it, for Charles'
marriage removes the last tie which binds
me to England. Y'ou will wriie to'me
-ometimee, my friends, and you will
address your letters to Professor Westmacott, Emancipation College) Denver. From
there I shall watch how the glorious
ttruugie goes in conservative old England,
ami ir I tm needed, you will find me here
again righting in the forefront of the fray.
Good-by���hue not you, girls j I have still
a word I wieh to say  to you.-',
"Give me your hand, Ida,'and yours,
Clara," saiii sne, whtn they were alone.
'-Oh, you naughty little pulses, aren't you
ashamed to look me in the face? Did you
mink ��� did you really think that 1 was so^
very blind, and could not see your httls
plot ! Y'ou did it very well, I must tay

belter as you a.re. But you had all your

The Showman's fihosL
���   CHAPTER. I.
The blue-faced TaBmanian Devil slumber-
d peacefully ; the great aboriginal ape of
the Andes pursued the aboriginal flea ; the
fretful porcupine, like a' literary man out
of harness, had laid down his quills, and
dozed at ease ; the lordly lion yawned lazily,
mindful, possibly, in the sultry heat, of the
African desert in which he roamed in in-
eant days ; tho polar bear alone was disquieted, aud he went up and down in his
den like a professional walker against time'
It was nearly noon on a roasting, English
summer day, rind Mr. Solomon Vurlcy'a
unrivalled peripatetic zoological exhibition
was pitched upon an English village green.
The village was the centre of a'scattered
group of sleepy little places, and Solomon
had done fairly good burliness yesterday,
aud looked to-day for better business still,
Ou the morrow he aud his unrivalled exhibition would bo away again,in search of
'resli haltiug-jdaces and a public new.
Solomon sate with his wife anil daughter
in a houso on wheels, Tho Iioubc , was
painted a golden yellow, and the panels on
its walls were picked out in red. It had
auowy muslin curtains to its little windows,
aud the brass knocker on the door glistened
like gold. Within, everything was snug
and iu miniature, aB in a state-room aboard
ship. At any breath of air tho canvas roof
of the show made a flapping noise like a
sail, and kept up the aboard-e'hip illusion.
Solomon himseli was nautical m aspect,
being brown of complexion, through nine'
contact wiih all sorts of weather.uud attired
in a suit of blue pilot cloib and a low black
shiny hat of seagoing pattern. 'Mrs.
Solomon, whose name was5 Sarah, was also
of a nautical'pattern,''looking generally
cleared for action,in a dress which displayed
her shapely' ankles and her plump brown
arms. This drebs was cut away a Utile
below the neck, showing something very
like .a shirl-front, from which rose am
undeniable staud'Up collar, surrounded by
a red scarf tied in a sailor's'knot. - Her hat
was identical in pattern''with Solomon''-,
but was worn rakishly at the back of hor
head, where it rested ou a coil of tidy black
hair, giving its wearer a clear look-out
aloft.      . . '.''"'.
"This is abont as 'ot as they^ make 'cm',
ain't it; musis ?" duid Solomon, alluding to
the weather, and blowing an idle, cloud.
His voice was a tulle hoarse with constant
open-air oralory.     > ' '
"I hope Jim's a-keeping Jack pretty
cool," said Mrs. Solomon Valley.
"Ah I" said Solomon, rubbing his pilot-
cloth knees with Ins brown hands ; and
then; rii-ingslowly. "I'll take a look round,
missis."   ' '        ��� ,
Jim was one of the human staff.and Jack
wus the polar bear. Jack was apt to grow
delicate in hot weather, aiid it was Jim's
business to douche him. Solomon took the
promised look round, and watched Jim as
he splashed the grizzly Jack. 'J3
"That's right, Jim," said Solomon, "keep
him cool. This weather tells on him, poor
ereetur."    , '
"Ah'l"said Jim,with an air half-mournful,
half-resentful. "J don't find " nobody to
dowk me, master. ��� A cove gets dry inside
an' out on a day like this.''
"Tneer's a spot or two o' mysture iu tiie
bucket yet,"' returned Solomon ; and Jim,,

Jim,the tigiit-iroiisered and loose-shirted
dexterously caught ,the coin, spat upon it,

and "took up his buckets, but lingered.
"See the bloke in the stror 'at,'ere again

transparent preience of having asked the
question casually.
Solomon nodded. ,    _
"Uncommon fond o' wild beasts he,is,

Solomon nodded again.
" What's he arter?" inquired Jim, dropping the buckets ou the sawdusted turr.

At the recent meeting oi the Rural Labourers' League in1' London, England, some
instructive facts' were elucidated! Mr.Jesse
Collings, M.P., who has devoted his life to
improving, the condition of the working
classes, and more especially of that of the
agricultural'labourers, is the president of
the League. The Marquis of Lansdowne���
a member of the''Cabinet���presided, and
thero were many M.P.'s and other persons
of note present. He explained thut rhe
object of the League is to establish a close
connection between the labourers" and the
laud, with respect to renting'or owning it.
It appears that ihe total number of persons
in England and Scotland holding allotments
of a quarter of an acre or more exceeds
200,000. This means apart from the dwell
ing and its appurtenant land. Tho goneral
opinion in rural districts appears to be that
if a man follows somd steady, avocation ho
cannot do justice to more than one-quarter
of an ucio of laud in his spare time ; but
that this, if properly utilized results in,a
notable addition to tho modest incomes of
farm laborers, besides keeping them out of-
possible mischief. .' n
There has been a' great discussion upon
Iho subject of small farms, with the r. suit
that the leading authorities agree that
-' ii'
in some branches ot tunning, and also in
market-gardening, it pays; but that in
other cases large forms are the best. There
is uo hard-and-fast rule.' Tho County
Councils have tho legal power to buy laud
where landlords are willing to sell, and
then either to'resoll the same in lessor lots
"n or to,let it in small holdings. One great
difficulty in the latter case is the'cost of
putting up extra tarm buildings; this is
the stumbling block with great landowners
anxious to benefit workingmen, for ufler
���-oiug to that cost���if things go wrong���
their ouilay niay be wasted. Tno Marquis,

In law-abiding England rented land will
fetch 25 years' purchase, but in Ireland-
owing to insecurity���only 17 years, and
practically Government is the only buyer.
Butt, the first Home Rule leader, before
the era of' lawlessness, estimated Irish
land at 22 i years' purchase ; so since his
valuation it has diminished one-fourth in
number of years, and also about one-^
fourth in actual rent. If Home Rule-had
been granted both would have falleu still
further. But in exceptional cases���with
small holdings iu Englaud���tho Government could safely imitate what has been
Tho Marquis pointed out that since 1SS1
��10,000,000, has oeen advanced ��� to the
Irish farmers to enuble them to buy
their farms, and that the total arrears only
amount to ��7,000. The following instance
illustrates what can be done : lu 18SS Sir
Robert Edgcumbe bought 'a farm of 343
acres in Dorsetshire for ��."j,0o0. ,We then
outlaid an additional sum oi '��1,002 in
improvements, making the totui outlay
��6,142. lie cut it up into twenty-five
holdings, rauging in size from two io thirty-
three acres, aud oli'ered them for sale, the,
purchasers to pay oiie-tenilrdowu in cash,
and the balance with interest by nine
instalments. To,the general Surprise all
the lots were immedia'.uiy purchased, eight
of the buyors being agricultural labourers ;'
aud now out of the ��6,142 there'is only a
balance'of ��500 owing. Under theoldstate
of things there were���including the farmer
���only four families employed on the farm ;
evidently oricinally rt was mainly pasturage ; now there are' twenty five families,
and the letting value has almost doubled.
This shows that there are vast possibilities
for 'agriculture in England. Bearing in
mind that on the average of years its soil
produces about one-third more per aero
than is the ease in France or the rest ol
continental Europe, and that the farmers
have the best matket in the world, there is
no reason fot despair.
what mm SAM IS AT.
Variety in Diet.
'��� A number oi facts conspire to throw a
somewhat new light ou questions of dietetics, oratleant'to show that these problems
are more complex than they have been by
i.'oine supposed. It has been usual to speak
of u "mixed diet," meaning thereby one
composed in part of animal and in part of
vegetable food, ot.e containing' 'pioteids,
fats, and carbohydrates, approximately in
such proportions as liiey ate required by
the organism ; but when wo see the effect
upon disease produced bys very snuiH
quantities of certain selected portions of
animals commonly u-ed as food, such as
thyroid gland, suprarenal gland, and bono
marrow, the suspio.on arises that Most- are
but tiie more pronounced OMiro-Bioiis ot a
widc-Bpicad principle, and thai such marked dilleientes in therapeutic o:'ectbetween
certain organs may be associated with
similar difference* in nutritional value
between the vai loiis portions and kinds or
meat which wc consume. Wi; may surmibc,
too, that the modes of prc-pnration may have
a considerable lnfluenee.aud that while good
cooking may be, aa it should be, a piepura-
t.ion for and an aid to digestion, certain
pioeosses iu cooking may do much more
harm to the nutritional value of our food
than is explained by'tne mere change in
its physical properties, the _ hardness,
toughness, etc., winch they produce. Tne
destruction of the anli-icofbuiic pioporties
of milk by condensing, overcooking, and
sterilization ;s a case iu point, and we commend to tho British farmer the nileiesting
question whether and how far the prolonued
rreezing of meat may interfere with its
finer nutritional value. Healthy mui, who
nave a great reserve of digestive ji'ower,
.can derive nutriment from almost any food,
but ior people of feebler frame a mixed
diet must mean one in which variety of
substance exists of vihose dilferences inter
se we as yet know nothing. The healthy
man, by taking jilen'y, fiuds among'it what
he wants, but until we know much more
than we do of the value of aiKerent foods
and different modes of cooking, we must at
lea��t ��fiord variety to our invalids, and
protect them from a monotony in diet
whicli mav perchance be debarring them
from the o'ne thing needful for their nutrition.

evidence in
support of this opinion, because it seemed
to upset all my preconceived notions as  to
' , the effects  of food on milk,   and   it must
have como as a shock to those who fondly
believed tney were 'feeding for butter,' aa
d,    the ' saying   goes.    We   have  often, been
Given formulas fcr  feeding  stock���rations
���,    -for butter,' for milK,'for meat���and- it has
seemed one of the  fundamental principles
of the dairyman's  creed that he could get
out of a cow what he put  into her, ,,or"in
' other words, that he would find in the pail
what  he laid  out in extra   food   for  the
cow."    Failing  any further  note   ou  the
s'ibject, I have looked up.tiieiquestion  for
'myself, and,   as a result, anr surprised at
v<    the confusion that appears toDdxist ou the
,,     point.,   From time to time we hear of cows
that  give   milk   Already   watered,   i. e.,
below   the   very low standard of fat aud
solids that  the analyst has decided   milk
'      ought to contain to warrant its being pure.
In the poiice   courts,  wheu   people   have
been summoned for selling  milk deprived
of a proportion of its cream, or containing
a percentage of added water, it haB Seen
. pleaded   that  the milk   was the   genuine
', product of the  cow and  sold just as she
yielded up to the milker.    In fact, this is
a common  plea. ..-S~.> ..rimes it  does   not
work, but   nu   others the cow ha3   been
u.^j.ii.11 a""s a  final  couit of appeal, and
milk has been drawn, analyzed, aud found
to be  of much  the same pocr quality  as
that forming the subject of ihe charge,
,    Generally this poor quality is attributed
to the keep.    In lSl)3 several cases of this
kind occurred.     They w*ere put down   to
tho drought, to the shortness of water, or
rto the scantiness of succulence iu   the * herbage.    These are points  that' one   would
expect  to influence quantity   rather'than
,  quality;���erpecially when' we find that in
some dairies, where  milk'is produced especially for sale aa milk,  large.quauiities
of  brewer's gram . and  similar  succulent
materials are deliberately given with a view
to   increasing the quantity of   the yield.
Milk being milk if it comes up to the low
standard fixed, quality is of no particular
importance. Similarly it has been proposed
to give dairy cows large quantities  of salt
to make them thirsly and cause  them to
drink freely, the idea being to  water   the
milk through   the   cow   so   as   to   avoid
pourinc  into the   bucket.    According "to
Dr.     Voelcker,   feeding     does    influence
.    quality.    He would not have sold  as milk
any product of tho cow   because   it came
stihig'nt from  her udder, but says that  it
" should   be   the  normal   Healthy   secretiou
of   the  mammary glands  of a   properly-'
fed cow.    He would   not  accept   "drawn
from   the  cow" as a   test of  purity, and
says',  if we have u  man feeding   cows on
nothing but straw  and  root*,   giviuc   no
saKe, no meal, etc., vie shall get milk that,
'.ii hie opinion, is of a quality that should
.ot hi supplied to tho public.    This looks
.s though Dr. Voelcker believed that feeding influences quality, and  is more in accordance with the old-world   notion that
we can feed for butter,  i. e., for   richness
of milk, that is the  opinion that the best
aud most iibundiint feeding in   the world
will not improve  the composition of,milk
of a cow with a   natural   tendency to produce milk low in butter fat.    On the oilier
baud, it is difficult to square these notions
, of  feeding aliecting   quality   with   what
experience has   taught us  about the characteristics of breeds.    We find Dutch cows
giving a larger quantity of milk, generally
of low quality : and wo find Cnannel Isl ind
cattle   representing characteristics   quite
the reverse���taking,"'not the gro=s  yield,
but the percentage of fat.    In considering
���'he relative merits of dairy cnvj,  we class
them as milk, butter,  aud cheese   cows���
Snorthorns, Jerseys, Aryshires, etc., and it"
bteeds have an   influence on quality, wh}-
not. individuals ?    Il is certainly difficult to
throw overboard   these   cherished notions
that by feeding well wecaninfliicncequulity,
and instead,connect ltmaiuly with the individuality of the cow. That careful observer,
Mr. Speir,of Newton,has also emphatically
declared that his experience quite controverts the old idea that the richness of milk
iu iu any way dependent upon the richness
of the food,and although wo may wutor the
milk   through   the  cow,   it seoms that, the
analogy between this mearia of increasing
the quantity and iiicro.isn-;.* the quality of
the product does not hold .-/od.    We have
often been kssuretl that cod liver oil fid to
cows is capable of increasing the fat of the
milk. I have thought so myself. Similarly
cake and other foods rich m fat have been
vaunted as butter-producing foods. Some
time ago a dairyman., declared that by
feeding two pounds of pure tallow per day,
he could secure a gain of butter fat ranging
from 30 ,to 90 per cent, on' the week.
Professor Wing has knocked , this on the
head, and after a ten weeks' trial of the
tallow , ration, says, "There has been no
increase in the fat in the milk of feeding
tallow to the cows, in addition to a liberal
eraiu ration."

How To Be a Good Guest.
Do not stay too long. It is much to break
into the life of any family, even tor a few
days. Pay no attention to urginga to stay
longer, however sincere rhey seem. ' Set a
time to go when you arrive, and Btick to
it. ,
Conform absolutely to the household
arrangements, especially as to time of ris-
mg,' going to meals, and retiring, lie ready
in ample time for all drives or other excursions, ij
Carry with you all needed toilet supplies
thot you may not bo obliged to mortify
your hos"t by pointing out possible deficiencies in the guest-room, such as a clotheB-
brusli���the article most commonly lacking.
It is almost always wise in the middle of
your visit to go oil somewhere by yourself
for a day, to rest your entertainers..
Enter heartily into all' their plans for
entertaining you, but make it plain that
you do not care lo be entertained all the
tnne,''or to have every minute filled with
amusement.' '
Be ready to suggest little plans for
pleasure when you see your host at a loss
to entertain you.-' Try how well you can
entertain, for a change. Turn about is fair
play in visiting, as well as iu everything

Take some work with you, so that when
your host has to work yoir may keep him
in eouuteuancd by working also. More

Two Favorite Pickles.
, Pickled Walnuts.���The walnuts must be
gathered when,they can be pierced with a
pin. When the shell can be felt,' they
have ceased to bo, in a proper state for
pickling. Steep them in a strong brine for
12 days, changing' the brine every three
days. Take them out, and expose to the
air until they turn black, which ' may be
two'days, often le3B. Make a pickle, using
to every hundred   uuts   about  "t gallon of
proper thing to serve toast in, but whe re
one is not at hand the slices can be at
least stood up in card-tent fashion.

was no happier child iu tl'e whole world,
than was Millicent .Arnold just at this

to feel cheerful when she was about. ' She
was very pretty, with her big, laughing
eyes and losy cheeks and lips, that would
smile whenever there was half a chance.
The sun never set in her heart, and the
flowers bloomed there winter and summer.,
The whole tovm knew her and loved her,
and envied her'father and mother. She
and her father were "always .together. He
was a young man, handsome, popular,
rising in politics, successful in business.
And when he and little Millicent walked
together, as they did almost every evening
after-business aud school were over for the
day, they smiled happily at every one they
met, and every one smiled happily back at

Household  Hints.
Apple sauce should always be eaten with
roast pork, sausages, goose, and all rich
dishes, for tri9 malic acid neutralizes any
excess' of chalky matter engendered by
eating too much meat. '
Eggs can be prepared in so many ways
that they are possible few-minute dishes,
but so easily" and commonly served most
people tire of them, therefore they should
uot be served ou consecutive days unless
one has the digestion and appetite of an
ostrich. >
Nearly every woman is troubled by
apple pies " boiling over." Tins can be
remedied by sprinkling more than half the
sugar to be used on the under crust, then
place the sliced apples above it, spi inkling
the remainder of the sugar, i-pice, salt and
a bit of butter on the top. By this means
thesucrar boils up into the apple instead of
running out.

Presently 6he began to droop. The doctors came and said she twaB threatened

six months the disease had fastened upon
her.'   Week by weekj
She tried to be oheerful, and she was so
grateful tothe people of the town who were
always coming to see her. And her beauty,
instead of growing ..less, grew greater. By
last spring she was so fragile that they
were almos^afraid to touch her., And one
look at her great sad eyes was ,enough to
briug the tears to the eyes of those who
called.   " '       ,,
Two weeks.ago it became certain that
her death was only a matter of a few days.
The child seemefl to know it, aud began to
ask to see her father. She talked to every
one about it, and refused to believe that
law could be so cruel as to prevent him from
seeing his little ,girl before she died. It
seemed to be so, however; and, although
every lawyer in town was interested and
was trying to devise some plan by which
it could be done, not one of them could
trunk of anything. ,
Richard Crowley, who' had been her
father's lawyer, set to work tc get the trial

went befoie Judge Miller and applied lor a
writ of habeas corpus for Arnold so that he

granted the writ. This was Saturday afternoon. Sunday morning Arnold, in citizen's
clothes, started for home.
In the evening lie was with his daughter.,' When the door opened and became
in and caught her in his arms, sho threw
her >iims about his neck and put her cheek
against his and gave a long sigh. " I knew
he would bting you," she said. Arnold
was crying, the keeper was wiping his eyes.
The little girl was quite calm.
" Now lay me in the bed, father," she
said. " I am so tired." It was so long
waiting for you."
She lay there, her lace as white as the
pillow, her dig eyes, bright as they had not

"And oh, God,' you were very, very good

The great Siberia railway, properly
Bpeaking, begins 'at Cheliabinsk, nearly
1,400 miles beyond Moscow writes a correspondent. Tnis preliminary journey can be
made in three days and four nights, on the
whole not uudomfortably, ut the exceeding
ly cheap rate , of about thirty-seven and a
half rubles, or some twenty dollars, for a
first-clasa ticket. The fare all the way from
St. Petersburg is proportionately even
cheaper, as the Russian Government a few
moutiiB 'ago introduced the system of a
rapidly decreasing rale of mileage for long
distances, ' The irip is only moderately
interesting. The country passed through

continue to do so,   as from  here a branch
line is  being   built  to the  Perm-Tiurnen

is the  population, with  lis  soldiers   and
officials in uniform,   its  peasants (for the

peasants,  long   bearded,   red-shirted), its
���Tarters and  Kirghiz, the  latter of whom

Cheliabinsk   to  Onsk, a  distance  of   741
versls,  or  about   .100   miles.    It     takes
nearly 4S  hours to  traverse this,  not so
much  on account of the easy slowness of
the .train  as because  at only  one station
does it stop for less than twenty minutes,
while an'hour or more is  not   infrequent.
Our train was a very long one and packed,
many of the upper-class 'passengers being
on Government service ; among them half-
a-dozen engineers  who  were going two or
three   thousind  miles further  to work on
another section of tbei-pad.    iiesides several batvage-cars,  otc,  there   were     three

and overcrowded wero they that, like many
of the old unfortunates  with  Eecond-class
tickets,   I preferred to ride  third.    These
'things were the best I have ever seen, new-

at night of being turned into sleepers with

various causes for this movement, such as
exhaustion of the soil or growth of'the
population till the lands of the Mir or

the chief one is the restless, wandering
spirit so characteristic of the Russian
peasant. The extension of railways must

therm organizations, whose powers and

Thames companies aro allowed to druw a
maxniium uupply of 1*20,000,000 gallons a
day ; the East London is allowed to take
."13,000,000 ' gallons, and the ,New River
22,500,000 gallons a day from the Lea :
the rest comes from the chalk wells; there
is also, however, a supplementary supply-
drawn by several 'companies from the grovel
beds'by the side of the Thames, and in
time of flood'or drought this natural store
is very useful. In March, last'year,
180,000,000 gallons of filtered vvaler were
required every day for the supply of London, which gave an average of about 33
gallons to each pereon in the area. ,. '
- But in March lasl ihe consumption had
increased so greatly, that the daily total
was 220,000,000 gallons, or 40 gallons per ���
head.'    Every drop, of tho water had   been,
with tho exception of&that from the wells.
For this purpose, tho companies have   114 "
filter beds, covering 117  1*4 acres.    Every '
company, except  tho  Kent    has   storage
reservoirs, yin   which water   is    kept    in
readiness   for   emergencies.      There    are ���
storage   reservoirs   for   unfiltered    water

1,280,000,000   gallons,   and, sixty   filtered '

enough water iu store for a little more than
a week.
,   The  pumping   operations  represent  an
enormous expenditure of force.  The South-
wark Company,  for instance, pumps 12,-

..eighteen miles to Nuuhead,  with'a rise of
'215   feet, for   distribution  thence to the
other  parts  of   the  district.    The  pipes,
too, are often  enormous in biy.b, some  ot   '
the tunnels being nine   feet in diameter. .
As for the length, there  are in all London',

are some 27,625   hydrants."  It   is bard  to

The chances of being interred alive byn
mistake while in a state ot catalepsy are
piobably one iu 10,000,000, but neverthe,
less,a man has patented a novel contrivance-
