l i-it-t   received  us  much  us  uny ol her
district of the. province.      Tlii.s   appre-
; '   '.nation,   however, was  all   thut could
lie .secured, even after strenuous efforts'
were made, hy  Mr.   Kellie aiid others
for a larger sum.    Th��s ,��Pl-ropi i**tion
the government agent was expected 10
.     expend to the,best-idva'ntage, nnd e-ich
part of tin* disttict elnimVd its share.
It will he admitted  tin t the rnoney expended  in   partly  completing,work is.
often as good as  wasted, and last your'
t.lieto'was so little to he expendedthat
no very largo amount of work could he
undertaken  without, leaving the work
'.-incomplete,  and   practically throwing
tne money away.   This is the result of
" ���     the cheese-paring policy of the govern-
-     merit, and not the fault of either the
in'einher for this  riding or the goyern-
, '-.  nil-lit agent, and, hut a.  vei\ small part
of   the gicully needed work was done.
Of   the  amount expended hist year,
'     Trout   Lake   and   -Lardean   received
nearly 'half,  about $7,000.     This   was
expended in  Mich  a  niiinner, ii.s to do
the greatest, good,  and  results  prove
that one doll-ir hist, year went as far 'n
securing   pi.-icticnl     results   as0 many
, dollars did the previous,ye;u.      An example of this is tin: piece of road which
^ was  built  up'the-north  fork   of   the

Jn the year before Mr.  Sibbal'd was'
removed i'i om oifice there was expended   in   this    district   s-ninotiiiiig   ('""er
$31,000.   which   was  generously  given
ed in one .se-.is.m 'by  Mi.  Sihli.ild.    Ji
i-.-iii ea-ily ho  s-lmivn that, n'liich of thi-
nioiiey   was, I brown   .-i.v.ij.    'For instance,   J lie   Big   Bend    wagon   mad,

and trails ill the   same   district, ditto.
It can not he shown that (he work performed by Mr. Sihbald was good .vhen
such ii large siun.of money was needed
so soon foi Jts repair, as after July the
wagon- road   ami   ninny of the (rails
were almost impassable.    .Surely if t he
work   had   been   well   done  'the  yinr
before Ihe roads and   trails would have
stood longer without   need  of   repair.
Mr.  Kellie  can   not be  bl.uned for the
small'apprnpriutioii.    .Every  pressure
was brought 'to,bear  on   tin; government to have it increased, but without
success.     ' A     prominent     Ferguson

would   have  more'influence  wilh the
powers "that lie  than  government sup-;
porters, approached   Mr.   Cotton, chief
commissioner of lands'and works with
a  request  for  further  funds, and wa.s
met with n very decided refusal.     The

Less of :'O,00n Lives, Was IK'-i-il nt
u Diatiincc of .i.OOO IIiie.-!.
On An?. 27, IS^n, at 10 a. m., occurred
the most stupendous nnd ii]ipallin,r of all
the convulsions of nature which have (lectin oil in.tlie history of (In- wot Id. Hy jt
the greater portion of the island of Ida-
l.iitoa, in (ho si rait of SiuhI.-i. w.is ^e-
stiojeil,' while two new islands woio cie-
.-itcd by volcanic action. We rcineiiiljor
the fact niiiinly on account or the mug-'
iiiiicent sunsets which followed the event
and were witnessed all over the woild.
Those sunsets, it is now hardly necessary
to state, were caused Iiy the impalpable
dust and vapor p.irtk-les which had been
ejected'fi;pm Kriikatoa to a liciglit oC 20
miles or incie [nun the surface of the
eiirili and were still floating in the upper
air. ' '
The eruption, caused a great seismic
wave of'the sea, which overwhelmed the'
villages on the nciuhl.nriiig shoies and
drowned upward of ,'50,000 persons. The
height of lhe crest of this.wave hns been
v.-iriously estiiiiatrd, hut alTolok Meton-j.
in Smii:ili-.i, the wiiter reached within si.\
Tect of the residency, which sliiiid.s on a
hill 7S feet above I lie sea. and the Dutch
iniui-ol'-Wiir Hernuw, nnchoieil off the
coast, was carried'by the wave up the,
valley nearly two miles inland and was
lefl, lii'-'li and dry, more than .'.0' feet
nhove the son level.
If ii  ni.'iii   were to  (ell  lis  that, he hud,
lii'iinT   an   explosion   which    Iind    taken
place at any (own situated some 30 miles
away, wo should probably iliiu!-''thnt he
was under a misapprehension.  .But if he
told  us  that  he had   heard  ono  that  occurred   at  a .distance  of ,'100   miles   we
should have no doubt as to the condition
of his  mind.     It  is nevertheless a   i'act
(hat the explosion of Krakntoa wits heard
1 not only 30 mid .'"00 miles a way. but also
at  a   distance  of 3.000  miles.     It   was
beard in India, nnd it was heard in Aus-
(raliii.  and also in  the island  of Itodri-
' -itiez,   which   is about  2,U(!S  miles  from
Kr.il'iiloa in a dircetoline.    Moreover, the
seismic, wave of (lie sea referred lo wiis
noticed   not  only  in ' South   Africa,   but
;i|so nt Capo Horn, which is 7,fi00 miles
distant   from  the strait of Sti|iila.     "Jut.
perhaps the most [���xli-aordin.ir.v of all the
phoiionioiirt   conned ed    with    this   cataclysm of nature was lite atmospheric dis-
I iu banco, or air wave, produced  by thp
explosion.    This nil" -'wave,  if  js stajei],
went  three times around (ho oip'tli, nm]
it  has been  reviiulred  thut "the champ-
tor of  this  disturbance  would   seem  almost  i ii ci edible weie it not  for the fact
that  il'is attested by the baroiframs of
o-.ory great meteorological station on llio

It may be mentioned that, although tho

Copijrifjld, 1SC0, hi/ Beatrice F. Craxivcll
at ^
I thought my. cousin, Annie /tigwoll,
would have, made me more welcome when
I came to stay with her at her Dartmoor
farm. I Iind been ill; c-hiingeof air was
recommended, so ,1 offered myself to' my
cousin, *n thai fashionable nianiiei-. as a
��� "liayiug guest," iind I must admit; that
, after a lf.-ig, hilly drive'to Brac-kworthy
I thought, be surely would be glad of society in so-delated 'a spot.
Butcher .-elconie was not of the hearty
kind   I   exacted   from   a   west  country
woman.   Sl.e greeted me without eiithii-
���>,        siasni.   I observed that wo. were alinost
strangers to one another, and she made
,     no  professions  of wishing  we  might  r>
better acquainted. ...
' , ���   "You'll, iind   us   very' dull   and   Jooely
bore, I'lorrie," sho said. "You won't want
,.   to stay long.','   , '
.. ' During'the days that followed she often
^sked me if I were,not getting tired of-
the place.'in a style suggesting that5 she
would not be sorry if I |crt. One morning she observed to me: "I am expecting
a visitor hero, b'lorrie. K0 in ay come any
day, I'm not sure of a particular time. It
���it is a gentleman who is coming .to see
the farm. You know 1 am selling the
place...'I intend going to America."
It was the first time I had hoard of any
��� , of her plans, and I observed with what
difficulty she now spoke of them. ��� '='
' ; One morning, a few days afterward,
she said she must drive into the town for
business and would be absent all dav. <I
might be lonely, added she. Would I not
come with, her'.'    ,      e     , '
"Oh, I've plenty to amuse myself with,"
I answered.   -I, shan't feel dull, and who'
\ knows?���your' possible   purchaser    may-
,    (urn up, and  I  can show him '.the farm.
What's his name, in case he should turn"
upV" said J, just to tease her.   .
"*llis liiimeV   Hartland," she answered,
in' a suppressed tone. '
1   watched   her  dtive  away,, our maid
' beside  her.    Kliza   could   not ��� understand
I was staying at home for my own pleas-"
lire and tried lo cater for my amusement
before she left. ,   ,
'���One   o"   they   convicts   from. Prince's'.
Town's escaped," she saidoto me.'when'
Annie  was  out  of  the  way.'    " 'Tis   all
"'     bete in 'the.paper.   I'll leave'it for you lo
lead, since ^you're not able to come'with
' us, -Miss  Florrie..'
She thrust a dirty local paper' some
two clays old, into my hand, and thou
ran after Annie, who was calling her.     .
After thoy  left  1  road  the account of
the  convict's escape   with   no   pariieiilar
inteiest.   It was written in a sensational
stylo,   giving   a   graphic   descviption   of
lhe   man,   Jim   I'hipps.. who   was   under
sentence  of  ���>.*"> years   for  manslaughter
, under such  doubtful  citw.tns.taiiees  that
it seemed almost like murder.
Later in the morning some one opened
,   the gate.   I saw a tall, good looking man.
clean shaved, with something in  bis appearance that suggested an actor���I kuow
not  why���carrying a   knapsack  over  his
shoulders. ��� i
���    "Miss   Itigwoll, at,"homeV".-'he   asked.
when I opened the door.
,  ���"Xo.   My cousin has gono'to Ashliiirton
' find won't be home till late."'   Then suddenly remembering  who. this must  lie.   I
added, "Are yo.u not Mr. IIiu tlandV   We
������,(-'i"C expecting yon". ..My cousin   was so
sure you'would not come while she was
away.   But I can show you (he,farm." .
I'offered to dispose of his knapsack, but
,   lie would nut part with it.   All my. impoi>
tunities only served to mako him' slip  it
from   his shoulders,   lay  it  on   the  ir.blc
nnd   loan one elbow on  it,  while ho aie
the   luncheon   I   had., prepared   Tor   him.
Had Dartmoor the effect of making peo-
,ple taciturn"' thought I.
"I'm sure you must bo busy,," ho presently   said.    "Don't ,let   me   hinder  you.
I'll taken walk round the farm and liave
, a look at the place."
Evidently he, did not care for my society. I reflected, lie was very willing to

me for a stroll, or have staid to' etiter-
liiin tne since he, know I was alone. Mr.
Usui land's behavior did not prepossess
me in his favor.
I finished rmno' letters, made some domestic prep.-.nil ions and (hen thought of
looking for my guest.
Out of (he back door I glanced over
the inoeiv whore no tree or obstruction
hindered the- view for miles. I saw Mr.
Hartland about a quart or of a mile from
the house,' where a brawling stream
(lushed down the hill. But what was lie
' doing'.' Evidently'he had found a spade,
for he scorned to be digging a big pit
where the soil near the stream was soft
ttnd deep. What am extraordinary performance!
I crept up to him, .stop by step, my
footfalls making no sound on the soft
turf. lie tioithe'r hoard nor'saw my approach.
The  Inseparable  knapsack   was  beside
him open, and it did not take long to discover   that   .Mr.-  llarllnml   was   burying
something.   It was a convict's diessl   ""'
stranger was no man of business, but
escaped criminal!
In an instant I remembered'tho newspaper dcsciiptioii. Jim I'hipps was tall,
���*mhHnni-(lpmati"r.v"*T1'(7'*o!iTiiii((' and a man
i of good education. An iiivuliiiitaiy exclamation escaped me. The man turned
found and saw me there. Never have I
sieli anything like the e.spiessiuu of his
"What brought  yon  here'.'"  he  fieicely
cried, seizing me by (he v. list.
"1 came lo see--to ���<(,"��� | g."sped.

!   'A well   informed   and' conservative
writer   in   a   western 'Ontai io    paper
speaks as follows of the   business   out
look for the present  year:���"There   is
good promise of   business   the   present
'year.being even more   profitable,    than
that of 1S99.     In  former   seasons   the
wholesale ti ado wore inclined   to   pur
chase cautiou'sly  fearing lest   a decline
in the markets  for   finished   pioducts,
either through a   developing   weakness
in the raw material or over-production
;ind ccinsecpieiit, sacrifice   in   values   of
liiiishrd goods .should break values   before stocks had moved   out  of  second,
hands,   which    would    necessarily    involve large'losses.    There   is   no 'such
difficulty to   he   contended   with    t.l
y-iar.    So far the wholesale as wol
the    ictail    trade,,  have     been     r
exercised over the difliculty in  gelling
gdods promptly delivered by "the.  mills
than thoy  have   Over   the "mutter   of
prices   being   maintained   at   curient
values.    No  weakness   i.s   al    pieseut
appaient,   in   the   -situation' for either
raw materials or manufactured   goods,
and   owing .to   the   large   purchasing
pywor-of-thor-fiiasscs-and , their   ability
lo tibsurb  stocks ,whioh   a   few   veins
>e   been   figured   on    as
surplus productions-there  pi onuses   to
he a ready outlet for most, of our. staple
products for the home.market.
