Annie Rooney's Dog.
Annie had a little dog, his hair was white as
fcnow, ,   '
Ho ran away' one Rummer's day where dogs
r should never go.   ,
Then Annie sat her down and wept, the tears
streamed from her eyes.
She never found that little do��.    She didn't

Now Annie hod a brother Tim, who kept a
country store.
Ho eat him down and smoked his pipe and
watched the open door.
And as tho people' paired alonK tlioy did not
'       stop to buy,
Tim still sat down aud smoked his pipe and
blinked his sleepy eye.
And so the sheriff closed him out, but still ho
lingered near, u >    ,
And Annie came to drop with him a syinpa-

J_M application will be made ,to the
Parliament of Canada, at the next session thereof, for an Act to-incorporate
a Company for the purpose of constructing, equipping, maintaining and
operating a line of railway to run from
a point at or near the miiies known as
the "Trail Creek mines," in the District-
of Kootenay, in the Province of British
Columbia, to some .point as near as
procticahle. to the junction of Trail
Creek and the Columbia River, iii the
said District of Kootenay, with oower
to construct, equip, maintain and operate branch lines ; and also to construct
and operate telegraph and telephone
lines in connection with the said railway, together with the usual powers to
acquire lands, privileges, bonuses, or
aids from the Dominion or Provincial
Governments, and to make traffic and
other arrangements with railway,
steamboat and other companies, and
for nil other usual and necessary
powers, rights and privileges.

A most inteiesting experiment took
place simultaneously in London and
Paris recently. It was the long-expected test of Gray's telautograph over
the telephone Jline, 312i miles long,
connecting'those two cities: ' It was
agreed by cill present that the test was
entirely successful, and that'it was a
wonderful .spectacle to watch the instantaneous reproduction of the movements of a pen in the hands of a' man
writing 312J miles away. Twenty-three
miles is submarine cable and 5i miles
consists of buried conductors in, Paris,
while all the English line, is overhead.
Some delay at the outset was caus-ed
by a'broken wire at the Pat-is end, but
after this was remedied the telautograph representatives wrote back and
forth for an hour and a half without
any trouble. The actual counted speed
of transmission was 18 words inr 36
seconds at one time, and 22 words in
40 seconds in 'another, the average
number of letters in a word being five.
The writing ,,was perfectly legible, hut-
somewhat ragged at very high speed.
Current, was supplied, at the London'
end, by a battery of bichromate cells,
two rows in parallel, the voltage being
57, while at Paris there were storage
batteries and a Calland cell, the latter
being arranged four rows in parallel,
the .potential being. 03 volts. The invention is a wonderful stride iu the
sdience of' transmitting over loug or
short distances." -------   -, .
Four New Millionaires in Canada.
J. D. Luttrell, of Spokane, Wash.,
has received the welcome news that he
is one of the four heirs to an estate in
Ireland valued at $S,000,000. The information reached him through a letter
from his brother, Alex. Luttrell, of
Kincardine, Out., and was accompanied
by indisputable proof that he was a
millionaire in reality. The estate,
which consists'of $5,000,000 in cash and
$3,000,000 in real estate, was, left by J.
Luttrell, of Ireland, who died some
years ago, a.widower without children.
His will left the entire estate to his
brother; David Luttrell, who came to
Canada half a century ago. Several
years were spent in tracing David
Luttrell's wheicabouts, and when he
was finally located iu Queen's county,
Out., it was found that he was'also
dead. He left a nwidow with three
children, the two sons above mentioned
arid a daughter, Mrs. Mary Dunlap, of
Goderich, Ont.,all of whom are.-alive.
The four ate the only heirs to the vast
estate. 'J. D. Luttrell is employed as a
oigarmaker. and plays in the Spokane
Auditorium orchestra.

Cruelty to Animals.
Dkar Sir,���In your last issue there
appears an apology for a letter signed
"Crib." It is really worthy of some
attention, because, it is seldom one
conies in contact with' an individual
who has the cheek to inilictsuch a.
string of crass ignorance on a modest
aud unassuming public.
Were the Society for tho Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals to establish a
branch here, surely"Crib" would be
the first to come within tho bounds of
its jurisdiction., lam myself the owner
of the clog train which conveyed the
mail to the Big Bend, and I consider
myself perfectly well qualified to judge
of the amount my dogs can comfortably
carry. . ���       ,
The round trip'is about 170 miles and
we made it in 10 days, which is proof
positive that my team' was not overloaded, and if Mr.," Crib" will take the
trouble to inspect them he will- find
that'they are in'perfect condition. I
will not take any particular point in
this'letter for tho subject of my remarks, for the very simple reason that
it' is altogether, without point and
totally uncalled for. There is, however,
one sentence I should like an explanation of, and that is :���"To remonstrate,
with the driver was useless." The
person who conceals his lamentable
lack of common sense1 behind ' the'
noni-de-plunie of " Crib " certainly did
not attempt tx)," remonstrate with the
driver," and it Is just as well for him
that he did not, Or he might have been
confined, to his cognomen, for somo
time to tome.���Yours truly,

As to the cost of the undertaking Mr.
Tapping advocates a Oin. by Oin pipe

one end'only.' A 5ft. -Jin. by 5ft. -lin.
13ft. high would not supply Ballegard's

to'Mr. Tapping's plans, would amount,
to at least $300. What would be left
for nails drainage, bossing and labor?

How a Great Story was Written!
The history of any great and1 successful undertaking is always interesting, thciefore at the risk of being
accused of violating personal confidence
we tell our readers of the origin of a
famous sl-ory of the civil war. The
Chicago Ledger wanted a story which,
besides being'a love story of merit,
should vividly describe the thrilling
events of the battle of Gettysburg and
the. siege of Richmond. One author
after anoiher failed in the work., and
at last St. George Rathbiirne was approached on the subject. Hodom.-mdcd
a fabulous price, for the work, but it
was paid, and the story was written to
order. ' It is printed under the pen
name of " Hugh Allen,"and is declared
by critics, who have been shown the
advance sheets, to be the best story of
the war ever written. The first instalment of it appeared in No. 3, Vol. xxiii
of the Ledger, but, in order to reach all
classes of' the people, the publishers
will moil the opening chapters of the
story free of charge to all who fieud in
their names at once. Address the
ChU-ago Ledger, Chicago, Illinois.
A Rancher's Grievances.
' Sir,���I would like to draw attention'
to the fact' that while there' are hundreds of, acres of excellent ranching
land oh the opposite side of the river
from Revelstoke, it is of no earthlj* use
for farming purposes on account of the
absence of a foot-bridge across the
river. , I took up laud (here ten years
ago, and have stayed by it ever since,
hoping some daytosee a proper means
of access to it. When the-AP.R. Co.'
built the present bridge there was a
passage-way left' underneath for foot
and vehicular traffic, but two years
afterwards it was removed, and ever
since then I have been compelled to
cross on the,-, trestle-work, which, is
dangerous at the best of'times, but.
especially so on dark wintry nigbts
when the cross-pieces are covered with
snow and ice. About two months ago,
owing to loose, ties on this trestle, 1 fell
through to the ground���a distance of
So feet���and was seriously hurt. I have
not been able to do any work since. It
is a great hardship on a poor man like
myself, and I should think it was in
the power of the Government to order
the C.P.R. to provide a safer moans of
crossing than at present in use. Every
time I come to town I do so at risk
of life and limb, to say nothing of the
uncomfortableness of meeting or being
ovettiiken by a train on a trestle bridge
thien-quarters of n^milo long. The rich
land, which is now covered with raspberry bushes and rotting cedar logs,
���should bo dotted c with prosperous
farms, and no doubt would' be' if it
were made acccssihlo.froin the1 town.���

Will Probably Suspend Pelagic Scaling.
Assistant Secretary Hamlin, who
made an investigation of the whole
sealing question during a visit to the
Pribyloll' Islands lust summer, has
about completed hisCroport, which, it
is understood, will show that the
greatest menace to the life of the,seal
is pelagic sealing. It is believed at
Washington that on the basis of this
report steps are about to be taken to
secure Great Britain's consent lo a
modification of the Paris award, having
for its object the total suspension for a
specified number of yearn of pelagic
sealing within the B/.'lwing sea.
Mr. Picard's Scheme.
Sir,���In your last issue Sir. Picard
replies to my letter. Now I shall begin
with Mr. Picard by saying that I have
forgotten more about hydraulic engineering than he has ever learned yet.
He might learn a little experience if
some person would risk $.'500 on his
scheme. By the tone of Mr. Picard's
letter it would seem that he has already
changed his mind with regard to getting water from the river, and now
seeks to repudiate that idea. He has
probably seen that his original sclienu:
would be like his perpetual motion
scheme���a complete failure. My plan
to supply the town with water is Nature's own.o As for my credit, I will
challenge Mr. Picard to balance his
books a nd let us compute. Perhaps lie is
right about the flood fever. ' ! lost considerably by tbeflood.aud would notcare
to Sfto the town deluged, even with Mr.
Picard's impossible puinpiiigappar.il us.
Please forgive me. Air. Editor, for thus
waiting your- valuable space.���Yours

Amendments to the Mining and License
In the Legislative- Assembly, . on'
Tuesday, the lion. Col.-Baker moved
the second "reading of the Miiuhg'Bill.-
The amendments had nearly all been
recommended by the Mining Com-
'jiiittt'e. The present law of assessment
"was that $100 worth of work must he
done upon a mineral claim every year.
This was to ensure the proper development of the claim, hut was found to be
very inconvenient, and the miners
would in many causes willingly pay !t*100
tp-t.he Government in lieu of the assessment work r.equired. , The Bill, therefore, contained 'a section making the
matter optional. A'tax of $100 might
be paid to, tho Government, oi the
niinoi might pi-iform $100 worth' of
work. Another amciiduiout was in
regard to jninei-.'il.lii-eiise--. It was frequently impossible for the employees
of a-mining coinp.Hny to pay their $5
-license fee at tho time- tho collector applied for it, and the Hill made the company themselves liable for the collection of the license. -
L_Mr. Semlin said that the Bill had only
been placed on members' desks that
afternoon and they we're accordingly
"unfamiliar with its provisions. The
amejidnient, referred to by the mover,
to vary the assessment so as to include
a direct-tax of $100 w-is mi-important
change. The Bill likewise proposed to
tax simple, mine .laborers. Ke moved
thJBadjniirniiit-iib of the debate, which
was agreed to.   ,
With respect to the License Bill,'
Hon. Col." Baker said in up country
localities on the boundry line between
British Goluinbl-a and Alberta, peddlers
were in the habit" of coming into the
Province by train and peddling their
wares without'�� license. Owing to
this' practice resident store-keepers
were placed at a disadvantage and the
Bill made the present Act applicable
east of Cascade range as well as west
of it.,.-  -���-  .,
��� Mr. Somlin contended that a Bill of
this chiiracter should have been brought
down by me 'sage.       i   ,,      , .
The Speaker, however, ruled that
the Bill merely i(-quired to be reported
to,, the House from Committee of the
The Bill was referred to such Committee with Mr. Booth in the���chair,
reported to" the House, the report
adopted, the Bill lead a first and second
time, again coiliinitti'd.with Mr. Booth
in the chair, and afterwards�� read a
third time.

\ Calgary as a Smelting Centre.   ���
'The idea of making Calgary a great
smelting centre, which is being advocated by the Tribune of that city, is a
feasible one, and' if the mining towns
-pf.jB6j4j-flstQke.jind--Golden do not in-
���^effd Ho \voric-^the' smelters.- already
erected-within their confines, there
certainly-' can he no objection to Calgary
tiiking tho matter "up and carrying it to successful accomplishment.
Although the Alberta town can never
hope to compete with, Revelstoke as a
smelting town, should the latter place
really mean .business, it cannot be gainsaid that it has advantages'equal to
'those "of "Omaha,-Great Falls, Everett
or-'Tacoma.- The   distance from   the
1 ���* } l
Kootenay mines is very much less than
to either of those places, and yet ore
is nearly every day passing over the
C.P.R. in large quantities to one or
-other of those smelters. As the Revelstoke Smelting Co. seems to have retired from-the smelting business, it
would be well for Kootenay miners if
the C.P.R.- would quote such a low-
price for coal and ores to Calgary as to
make the building of a smelter there
not only a scheme to be advocated, biifc
an actual fact.   The Tribune f>;iy.s :
"As soon as the Arrow Lake line is
completed, as it wili be thin summer,
the facilities of transportation from
tlie Sloc.-tii country to the C.P.R. will
be complete, and with the proper coal
and other necessary maleriah- for
smelting at our very doors, a smelter
here ought to he able to compete with
thos-e at Omaha, Great Falls, Everett
and. Tacoma for this trade, which
would al-so doubtless lead to a lar��e_extension of business lelations with the
Kootenay districts in other branches
of commerce. The smeltii-g industry
has this also in its favor, that it is riot
likely to lie swamped in its struggling
infancy by. the competition of eastern
manufacturers, which in these days of
increased facilities of communication
and vast combinations of capital
renders the ostahli-dnuent of local
iiidus-l riet, more and more incro.iiiiigly
��lifiiciilt. evi-rv decade."

Begg's History of-the Northwest.
The second volume of Alex. BeggV
" History of the Northwest." publ s'ied

The full work, when complete, will

The Victoria correspondent of the
Winnipeg Commercial, who is generally well posted as to affairs at the
capital, writes: -'Merchants in Victoria
U\lk of little else in trade than the prospective British Pacific Railway, which
they say will surely be buiit, and which
will give a trc-ineiiilous impetus to the
trade of the province and Victoria in
particular. Business is fair at the
capital, in fact it seldom varies, as the
wealth of the pi evince has been centred
there since federation, and there is
more money per pocket than in any
city in the province, with the exception
perhaps of Nanaimo, which has a
decided boom at present, owing to the
large increase in the coal trade since
the change in tariff." a
There are in the United States at
present 6,000,000 farms. About one-
half the population of the sepviblic, or
over 30,000,000 people, live on them,
and these farm dwellers furnish more
than 71 per cent, of the total value of
the exports of tho country.

A number of r.i<iug men vwm clnit-
ting in an(nptown hoti i on 13ni t-iway a
few evenings since, says the lu-w York
Sun, find one of the parry, who had
been abio.id in company with Walton,
the famous plunger,'when that heavy
spec-ilator nude iii-; second trip to England, told how near tin American came
to creating a bensatiou which would
have made tho country ring from one
end to the other.
"The vanity of' a   jockey,"   said this
man, "cost Walton and his friends $1,-
000,000 aud this is' how it all happened:
Walton had in his  stable among   other
horses Mr'. Pickwick, Sutler faud tho 3
year old Hopeful, which bo still   owns
and has in  the   stud   somewhere   near
New York.     We had been winning our
share of tho money,  both   on   our own
horses and bu those of other owners and
the sens'-ii had oriciiud  up   in ' the most
propitious fashion.    'All of tho American continge'b.t took advice from 'Potie.'
as we   called   Walton,    and   wo   had
made    tho    ring    wince   several times
on    Bottling     day.      Sherwood,     who
trained   for   Walton. , had a very high
opinion of Hopeful, and wanted   to run -
him in a stake race, but wo begircd him
to hold olf and pick out a   selling event
instead, and prepared  to   make  a coup
that would be talked about fur  mouths
to como.     Alter seeing   the   City and
Suburban run we ran back to London,
and from there "took the train fio Epoom.
where our   horses   were  quartered.    It
was our purpose  to  deceive  everybody
as to our intentions,   and that  morning
the" horses were brought out. trotted and'
centered,   and  carefully   put away, as
though they had had all their work for
that day.    ]u the   afternoon,   when the
Downs   were    deserted,     Hopeful   aud
So !er   were   brought   out   i.i company
with Riciuuo.id, a i.igh-cla:-,.-, hoive," tlien
tinii-od  by   Sherwood   but   afterw.-u-dg
bought by Walton, and brought  to this
country, rtii;niiigsthird iii'Pontiac's  Suburban.    The trial was a great  success
and showed us'that Hopeful was a grand
three year old,   of   quality    siitneieiitly
high to wiii'inany slakes for race hordes
of hi:, age.    Richmond beat  him   about;
a  let:^lh,    and   the  three year old   beat-
Sutler, away off;'in fact we were,in high-?
feather and  consideicd' the ' money wo
intended to   place   on , Hopeful  in   tho
coming race as good as won   ��� '
'���Racing in' England is vastly different
from the sport in this country, a'nd tho
great public knows far loss about the
merits of the horses than they do in
America,' ��� Horses run fewer races, are
trained privately, < and sometimes are
not beeniu public for ^months together.
As a consequence form is much harder
to follow, and thooo.vvho ha\e a bot'tled-
up.good thing and know how to guard
their secret get a .price that is at limes
ftsto:iishi..t:ly goo 1. We were amazed
to get as good a�� W to 1 against Hopeful, and, the strangest part of it all was,,
that the more wo but the more the ring
seemed capable of absorbing.    Wo told
Jiiir jockey (1 won't mention Ins name,
but he was a good one in .his day, and
modt of you know.him) that we stood to
win a fortune and to take no cuances.
From the start Hopeful was in a good
position, and after making a splendid
turn at Tottenham Corner we began to
cheer, for our chestnut beauty. was
striding along in front and moving over
the turf in magnificent style., A hundred yards from tho finish we were
exulting in our triumph, and fifty
yards from the 'line nothing but
a miracle could keep us from
getting the money:' Whips wero
flying behind us and|our colt was still in
hand. When I think of what happened
then I grow faint and want to swo.-'.r.
Our jockey, witti the insane desire of
������bowing what a good thing it was, took
a pull at Hop'-f ul's head," the great, long-
Etndmg colt became tangled and was
thrown otT his. stride. Webb was on

the case of man n proof that the ultimate
hand has appeared? By no mt-nni. Aud
yet it is probable for other reasons that
tho ultimate hand hai appeared ; that there
will never bo a more perfectly hiind--d
animal than man. And why? Because
tho causes which np to the point have
furthered the evolution of the hand have
begun to cease to net. Iu the perfecting
of tho bodily organs, as of all other devices, necessity is the mother of invention. '   , i
Ab tho hand was given  moro and more
to do, it became mote and more   adapted
to its work.      Up   to a point it responded
directly to each new duty   laid   upon   it.
But only up to  a   point.'     There  camo a
time   when   tho   necessities   became   too' -
numerous and too varied for adaptation to
keop paco with them.     And  the fatal day
O'ime, tho fatal day for tho hand, when ho
who bore it mado a new dit.oovery.of tools.
Henceforth what tho hand used to do, aud
was slowly becoming adapted to,do better,
was to bo dono by extoru.il appliances. ' So
that it anything new arose to bo  done,    to
be bettor done, it wits  not a better  hand
that   was   now   made,   but  a hotter tool.
Tools are external hands.     Lovoro aro tho
extensions of tho bones of tun arm.    Hammers aro callous substitute-) for   tho   fist.
Knives do tie- work of  nails.,  ' Tho   vice'
and piece��� roplaoo tho fingers.      The day

But'has not man to make his tools, and
will not that induce ,the development of
.the hand to an aa yet unknown perfection?
No. Beciuisu tools aro not mado with tho
hand. Thoy are made with tho brain.
For a time, cortaiuly, man hud to inako
his toolH, antl for a tlmo tliis work roccin-
poiiBi.'d him physically, and tho arm became elustio and the fingers dexterous and
wtroiiH. But soon ho made tools to make
tliCKo tools. In plaoo of (limping things
with-the* hand, he invented the turning-
lathe; to nave his fingers he requisitioned
the loom; instead of working his nmsch's
ho gavo out tho contract to electricity and
steam. Man, therefore, from ihi* timo
forward will ecus- to dovelop materially
these organs of his body. If ho develops
them (iiitiud.i his body, filling tho world
everywhere with ortifioial hands, supplying the workshops with fict-ors more in-
tricflle n'ld deft than orgtnlo evolution
i could make in a millennium, nod loosing
uliergiod upon them inlinitely more gigantic than his muscles oould over generate
iu a, whole lifetime, it is enough.
Evolution after oil is a slow proccus. Ita

, The   superiority of , refrigeration obtained by mechanical processes, as compared with   that  obtained   by melting
ice, appears in tho facts that bj* it more
intense cold  may bo  Becured, that  any
desired degree of   cold   may be maintained with perfeot uniformity, thut &
dryer   atmosphere - is   secured   iu   tbe
refrigerating box or room, that the m-
convenience of frequently replenishing
ice bunkers   and   the   slop and dirt attendant upon   this  work are avoided,
that the   annoying   uncertainty of   ico
supply and variability in ,its price aro
avoided,   thut  space   in ,tho   rooms or
boxes  to bo cooled is economized', by
substitution of a coil of pipe on walls oc
ceiling for tho  oulky ico   bunker, ami
that this refrigeration  con bo em ployed
for many purposes and places where ico
cannot be used at all.    Add^d to all this
is the  fact, of paramount importance,
that  whore  much   refrigeration  is re
quired tho  cost of a machine and its
operation is far less than the cost of ico
suuiciont to   do   an   equal   amount   of
These   ndvaiitagea   have   proved   bo
' groat in   practice   that every brewery,
packing house, cold ' storage  warehouse
or other establishment requiring a largo
amount   of   refrigeration   contains   iia
individual refrigerating   plant.    Where
consumption   amounts   to ten tons   or
more of ice daily, tho question  of  economy will bo   almost, invariably decided
in favor of the machine; if le->s than tan '
tons bo required, tho  cost of a machine
mid its operation   may ��� exceed tho cost
of ice sullicient to do ft similar amount
of   work:     In   many   such   esses   tho
nitperior   quality 'of   tho   rol'rigeiation
obtained, its cleanlino98,"'roliability and
'convenience, or,the requirement of moro
intense cold than   ice  will produce, so-
, cures   the   adoption   of   tho   machine.
Therefore,     small   machines fnro    frequently found on   shipboard,  in  hotels
und   apartment,   housed ' and   in 'many
manufactories.    But   most  of   the   ico
gathered from rivers and lakes, or made
in factories, is'uot consumed liy the fow
who   require largo .quantities,   but by
the many  who,   sovorally,   requiro lees
than ton fcon3 a day. >
'"Tho effort to .bring this superior ro-
frigoratiou ��� within to*),roach of small

During the  Middle   Ages it was ons-
tomaiy for princes and princesses to bo-
6onio betrothed and   married in child-,
hood   to' iusuro succession  or political
advantages.    But it  was only in exceptional oases that unborn  children woro'
disposed of in tho   samo   way.    Such a
case, however,' is on rocord.    If, occurred in lUGS, when 'Prince Siguiund, son
of the Eiaporor Charles   IV.   was liorn.
On his bantismal day  ho was betrothed
to Katherhio, daughter  of tho Cou.-t of
Nuremberg.    On   that   occasion it wad
agreed that a daughter   of Charles IV., .
with which   ho  expected   to be blessed
within five yearsrshould bo married to a
son of Count Frederick, of whom it was
also hoped that he should  so 'bo provided.    This is tho youngest bridal   conulo
on  record.      Tho   hoped-for   daughter
came in 1373, the last year of the allotted
period, and she in timo became tho wife
of Johann HI.,   tho  son   of tho Count,
who also justified the expectations of his
An Old Custom.
The ancient English custom of giving
lovo to.:ens on tho 20th of August died
' not many yours  ago.    Tho  custom was
for   "onaiuourod   maydes and   gentlewomen" to givo to their favorite swains
as tokens of love, .little  handkerchiefs,
three or four inches square, with a but-'
ton or tass'el at oachcorner and a  small
ono in the centre.    The  fiue.it  of- these
tavors  were, edged  with  narro,-   gold
lac'eor twist; and then, being folded up
'in four   moss   folds i"0   that the, middle
might be seen, thoy wero  worn   by   the
fortunate hv ibis in their  hats 'or on t ho
breast.   The.se favors were gem-rail., t.io
handiwork-of the fairo   mnyde   ,'iorself,
and well  she  liked  to  work  tno    lost
lionutiful figures she could for her favorite suitor; l,nit they became so much in
voguo in  Queon  Elizabeth's  time  that
thoy wero sold ready-made in tho shops.
This, of course, destroyed  the romance
of tho custom aud honco its death.
