Legislature is now composed of 40  Conservatives, and two Socialists,  Place and Williams. Not a single  Liberal was able to touch the wire.  One reason for this was that the  majority of the Liberal candidates  were not much better than Indian  cigar signs. The Liberals must  put up brainy men if they desire to  snatch a seat or two in the charmed circle at Victoria. There are  enough of Tory dubs in tho House  now, without having the harmony  discorded by introducing a bunch  of Grit dummies.  In the Greenwood riding J. R.  Jackson was elected.

Three  outfits went to work this week, and  more will be added in a few days.  The bridge across the Kettle  river, three miles east of Rock  Creek has been finished and is now  practically open for traffic.  The wagon road starting near  the City Hall is being continued a  mile and a half to connect the old  road.  An easier grade is being made to  the No. 7 mine, in order to cut  out the heavy hill leading to the  Ruby mine. ~  West of the Midway coal mine  some rock work is being done, and  the road widened.

To the man in love his sweetheart always looks beautiful, even  though to others, she looks as ugly  as an angry porcupine.  would like to have tho reputation  of Mark Twain,   or Lincoln,   or  Bernard Shaw.    It would  be just  for the sheer delight of being heard.  Whatever I gay now sinks into the  soft grey of universal inattention.  Though I spoak with tho tongue  of angels, though I utter words of  exquisite silver,  though  my sentences be as warm as Cowoggio's,  pictures or as tastily wrought as a  cup of Benvenulo Cellini, T and  my words and work  aro trampled  under the hoofs of the multitudes  of obscurity.  Therefore I could wish the gods  might give mo un hour of plain,  cheap, vulgar fame, so that before  I speak, club women might ring a  bell for silence, and when I speak  I might hoar my innocuous plati-  ttido caught up as something precious and passed on from lip to lip,  and that thus T might admire myself in the reverberating echoes of  my intellectual thunder.  Reputation fame, a pedestal,  raises a man to the nth power. I  have seen congregations convulsed  at a bishop's milky  wit; I have  Prairie Provinces,and this will continue unless some effort is made to  attract the industrious man with  small capital, and make it possible  for him to exist whilst working to  convert the forest into arable land  with an earning capacity.  British Columbia imports nearly  twenty  million   dollars worth   of  agricultural products per annum,  consequently   extravagent    prices  are charged    to residents in  the  cities,  and  yet we havo the land  which can produce more than  wo  need, and could export instead  of  import.     Is   not    this    problem  worthy of tho serious consideration  of a great statesman,  tho solving  of which  will   place him in the  front ranks and leave tho puorilo  politician 'leagues   behind in  the  estimation of tho present ond coming generation?

Several  speakers expressed  their approval,  and a resolution   was passed requesting Mr. Watts to submit the  proposal  to   the Premier   for his  consideration.    In submitting  the  matter to the meeting Mr.   Watts  said that whilst we all  admit that  the rapid expansion or construction  of railways is of the greatest importance permanent prosperity cannot be attained if we do not provide something for them  to transport.   -Mines and timber become  sooner or later exhausted,   but the  productive capacity of the soil  re-  izo a Society to protect our police- m���������-  en * mains with us if properly cared for;  and that the proposal he was submitting could be made to answer  Evisx the poets are not raving  much abont the spring that is now  touching ns with its icy Augers.

There   can be no difference of  opinion as to the most urgent needs  of the Provinco being population  and capital to develop her magnificent   resources,   and   that   large  cities are being   developed  much  more rapidly than the country resources upon which the cities must  rely eventually for their support  and subsistance.    And  unless the  agricultural    capabilities    of  the  country are developed' in  proportion to the growth of the cities this  Proviuce is more than likely to  meet with tho same conditions now  prevailing in Spokane and Seattle,  and other largo cities in tho TJ. S.,  owing principally to tho great development of cities, and the surrounding country having little or  no earning capacity.'  The first essential thing to produce permanent wealth is agriculture. A country composed of  small farms with industrious people is the most quickly recuperative after adverse circumstances or  great catastrophies. France after  the disastrous war with Germany  and her rapid recovery provides an  object lesson in that respect.   ',  British Columbia has the undeveloped land, but accompanied  with disadvantages, the most formidable being the great; cost of  clearing land and preparing it for  cultivation, and this is the principal reason why wo are behind in  tho competition for population and  plus for the purpose of assisting  poor   industrious   men    to   tame  nature and to convert the now useless land into its possible earning  capacity, and  feed  tho increasing  population "of the cities at a reduced cost?   That is one advantage, but many others will follow.  I suggest that the Government  should lend  money to bona fide  settlers at 8 per cent per annum,  and hold a mortgage on the property, that the money be advanced  only as the impiovements are done,  and- this to be in the hands and at  the discretion  of a non political  commission in each- district.    One  "per   cent should pay the cost of  administration.    The Government  for the peoplo will make 4 per cent,  profit, that is, over what a bank is  paying for the surplus' now held.  Consequently,    the   Provinco   receive the beuefit not only in that  but - in  the fact that tho taxible  value of the land will be increased,  and that by the influx of population, merchants and all industries  will   receive   their share   of the  benefits   which   accrue   from the  consequent expansion and development   of   tho   resources   of   the  country.  The thought may occur that, the  surplus would soon  be absorbed,  even so, there is plenty of capital  the Government  could secure by  issuing bonds at 4 per cent, which  would be readily tak'en  up for a  purpose of such  national importance and with such a solid security.  This is a suggestion in  its crude  form and I have discussed it  with  many of the leading people of all  shades of political opinion, and  no  one so far has expressed " anything  but approval of tbe scheme.

It  ever remains a o\ty, or If it take on a  soul it ls'.that of some terrific, almost  Inhuman,    force.    You    nev^r    turn  smiling  on   It  when  you   arrive,   or  smile to yourself when you think of  It, 'as' one" thought  of  a  loved "one.  London Receives  you   with  a  preoccupied air, Is sombre, heavy browed.  It has serious affairs to think of, and  cannot  relax   to   smile   on   you   and  make you welcome.   You cannot take  It by the arm and make free with it.  You feel  there would be'wondering,  accusing eyes on you if you did anything  which   would -break   the  sober  monotony of the usual,  the ordered.  ���������You  must  walk  sedately,  be of * the  crowd, keep on the pavement.  ��������� In > Paris   one  who  does  anything,  however    foolish,   however   odd,    to  bring some colour, some variety into  life is welcomed.    Parisians love' the  unusual,   the  Improvised,   the daring.  You    know   approving,    sympathetic  eyes on you as you parade your emotions, air your eccentricities, or defy  convention in any form.   The French  do not see -why shows should be kept  for  theatres, only;   they  would  have  their  streets   a  stage,   with  a   thrill*  at  every  corner.    That   is  why   the  flamboyant  Bohemian,   the   poet,   the  dreamer, the lover, all half-mad souls'  thoso who scorn conventions because-  their minds are on bigger things are  at home there. ���������'  The soul that iooks out of the eyes  of Paris ia that of one who 'has lived,  and loved, and tasted life's many  goblets, and remained young,-and gay,'  and above all tolerant in spite of all  her experiences. 'She will look with*  an Indulgent eye on your follies, for'  she has known them, and will know  them again; she^vill laugh on a sigh  at'your extravagances, knowing how  fleeting Is the season when one dare  be exuberant; she will take you to  her heart, and with strange lures  make you forget she has had other  lovers; she will let you go, the old  half-mocking, half-tender' smile still  on her lips.

One would think, at first sight, that  an anesthetic would retard the blossoming of a plant, instead of hastening it. The action would seem, however, to resemble that of a man who  takes a sleeping-draught in the afternoon so that he might get to sleep  earlier and wake at 2 a.m. to take a  train. \  It was found by experiment that  In plants, as In animals, ether and  chloroform cause "every Indication of  sleep, and during the past few years  the system of treating plants in this  way, to hasten them through the resting periods, has been adopted com-  ctally with extraordinary success.  Thus, ''a lilac-bush may be lifted from  the ground at the end of the summer,  while the "leaves are still on it, and  kept for several hours under the influence of ether.' By this means such  an effect Is produced on the tissues  as it would have taken Nature months  to accomplish. It is now easily possible to flower lilac twice ia the same  year by etherising the plant and subsequently forcing it in the hot-house.  Plants to be etherised are brought  first Into a dry condition at top and  root, and then placed in an airtight  structure. The door is sealed,.and  the ether applied through a small-  hole In the roof Into a vessel is the  house, and the fumes, being heavier  than the atmosphere, hang about near  the floor, where the plants are arranged. The ether has the effect of  drying up the moisture in the tissues,  and it is thought that In the natural  rest of plantB there Is a gradual-drying process at work, which, for want  of better knowledge, the cultivator  describes as the ripening of tho  tissues."  In the first place, it may be as well  to explain that Lloyd's it not an in-  Buranoe company. It la simply a combination of individual members, each  member transacting his own business,  but being bound by the common rules.  In other words, Lloyd's does not Insure as a , body,, all business being  transacted by ��������� Individual members^  Theso members divide the risk, each'  member taking,.a small proportion  only. - ���������> ��������� " ��������� >'  ' Thus, In the case of a policy for  $5000 it is 'quite" probable that the  risk would be' split up between ten  members. Bach of these members  would sign the policy, stating the  amount of risk "undertaken. As the  signatures are written" on the policy,  one'under the other, the meaning of  the term "underwriter" becomes apparent.   ;  In the case of a-large policy, there  may be columns of names, and so it  would happen that should a vessel be  wrecked no Individual person  would be responsible' for the whole  loss, in the case of disaster no member would have to pay more than  the amount underwritten by him. It  /requently happens that the fractional  risk taken by an underwriter may be  underwritten ��������� again ��������� by other people,  who will thus share his loss, If such  occurs.        ' (       '  Lloyd's was started about tho year  1688 by Edward Lloyd, the first of  the Lloyds, who kept a coffee shop in  Tower Street, and who at the same  time provided such facilities for  marine insurance that his name has  always remained as the title of the  association of underwriters who  transact business under its auspices.  Lloyd's "grew and prospered. So  much so that the members mado  fortunes. The years 1811 and 1871  were red letter years in the history  of the. association, the former witnessing the organisation of the company on the lines on which it ds still  conducted, and the latter the Act of  Incorporation.  In every port and upon every coast  Lloyd's'are represented, and at the  present moment there are no less than  2000 agents stationed all over the  globe. The movements of every ship  from point to point are known to  these men, and, as they are in constant communication with headquarters in London, the latter are in  a position to answer all inquiries relative to vessels In which Lloyd's are  interested." -',*"*  Marine insurance and marine information are the * specialities of  Lloyd's, but every kind of risk is  undertaken. The underwriters will  Insure any person against practically  any Imaginable contingency.

The Italian peasant, poor and overtaxed, is of necessity economical, but  he   Is   by   temperament   sober   and  frugal in -his mode of life.   Macaroni  and,olive oil seem.to.be his staple  articles of diet.    Beans with oil and  salt are held by the peasantry to be  a  dish   fit   for   the   gods.     Chestnut  trees flourish on the Apennines, and  the nuts form a nutritive food ��������� even  being ground into flour and made into  a  kind   of  bread  ���������, for  the   poorer  peasants of the country. The dwellers  in the Italian towns are also, 'for the  most part, frugal  and abstemious in  their   habits;    they   eat   and   drink  sparingly and are good cooks.    They  are,   too,  addicted   to  such  harmless  pleasures as caferor theatre visiting,  There on Sunday or Thursday nights  (the  latter  the  weekly "half-holiday)  the good burgher and his  wife  may  be  seen   elad  in   their  Sunday   best.  They spend little, but seem to enjoy  life.     Thc   Italian   woman   is   clover  with  her  needle,   and  does   wonders  In tho way o'f dress. But she is proud,  and would  rather stay at home than  look    shabby    or    unfashionable    in  public.   They dress carefully, and are  caTeful  of their dress, and  men  and  women are Invariably well groomed.

Always Her "At Home" Day  Carpenter-mason birds would probably own the hornbllls as the head  of their profession. A pair of these  birds make their nest in the trunk  of a tree, and the female, when about  to lay her eggs, enters'the hole and  does not come away until the eggs  are hatched. There is no way out,  for her lord calmly fastens her in by  plastering up the hole through which  she has entered, leaving only >a narrow slit through which she can thrust  out her beak to be fed by -him. The  male has a haTd time in feeding her  and the whole family which Is presently hatched. Still, his family costs  him less than does that of "the elder-  duck, which plucks the down from its  snowy breast to line her nest.  Birds build pretty well everywhere,  with all -manner of material. The  Idng-fisher is content'to have evll-  smelling fish-bones in the hollow  tree-trunk in which it lays its eggs;  the hoopoe, similarly housed, has a  nest which smells vilely, apparently  as a means of protection. A bare ledge  of rock for a sea-bird, a hole in the  sand for the ostrich, a mound of decaying vegetation acting as a natural  Incubator for the eggs of the brush-  turkey; nests of leaves, nests of  spiders' webs, nests of dainty lichens;  nests shaped like cups, like bottles,  like hammocks, like sugar-loaves;  nests made from a sort of glue from  the bird's mouths���������there is no end  to the variety of nest-making, from  the simplest to the most complex.  The Army and Navy Gazette calls  attention'very appropriately to this  subject. ��������� The war of 1870-71 cost  France 12 milliards of francs, while  some French writers set down the  cost at about 10 millards. The cost  from July 17, 1870, to the 18th of the  following May, on which day tlie  Treaty of Frankfort was ratified, was  1,912,000,000 francs. or about $385,-  000,000, this 'being for war charges,  properly so called. This sum works  out at something like $1,560,000 per  day. But, if other indirect charges  are included, and the vast indemnity  of five milliards, with its interest be  added, the total cost of the war is  brought up to the colossal figure of  $1,970,000,000, and to a rate of some  $8,100,000 per day. The cost of the  war to Germany ia estimated, with  contingent charges, and the reorganisation of the Army, but not the  ordinary military budget, to have been  $675,000,000. In modern conditions a  year of war would cost France $2,200,-  000,000 while for Germany the outlay  would be something approaching the  vost sum of $5,600,000,000.  |H.   M.

ARNOTT & MINE  Proprietors  Lest Her Vivacity  A few days ago two young ladies  hailed a tramcar, entered it, and  found only standing room. One of  them whispered to her companion:���������  "I'm going to get a seat from ono  of theso. mon.    You take notice."  She looked down tho row of men  and selected a sedato gentleman who  bore tho general settled appearance  of a married man. She sailed up to  him, and opened fire:���������  "My dear Mr. Green t How delight-  a strangor. Will I accept your seat?  Well, I do feel tired. I heartily admit.   Thank you so much."  The sedate gentleman ��������� a total  stranger, of course ��������� looked, listened, then quietly rose and gave her  his seat, saying:���������  "Sit down, Jano, my girl. Don't  often see you out on a washing day.  You must fool tired, I'm sure. How's  your mistress?"  The young lady got her seat, but  lost hor vivacity.  Opening Up the "West Lands  One of the most remarkable  features of the railroading In Western  Canada this year has been the unflagging energy of the Canadian  Pacific Railway officials in pushing  forward its branch lines to completion. Despite the fact that the company has had to pay big prices for  construction gangs, owing to the  scarcity of labor, hundreds of miles  of new road have been built, and good  services Inaugurated, greatly to the  convenience of incoming settlers.  What is probably the longest of  these new branch lines was opened  for traffic oarly In November ��������� the  Reglna-Colonsay branch. There were  really two branches open, as.at Vale-'  port Junction, 24 miles from Regina,  a sub-line leaves the big branch and  runs to Bulyes. From Regina to Con-  lonsay It Is 133 miles, while from  Valeport to Bulyes it Is 19 miles,  The Gael and His Societies  The "clan society" is, of necessity,  a  comparatively  modern   Institution.  In the days when nearly all the bearers of a surname were to be found  in  one  Highland   region,   united   for  mutual    protection,    owning  -direct  personal allegiance to their chief, the  olan Itself was literally a clan society.  There is, Indeed, a notable similarity  between the causes of coherence  in  the old days of the clan and in the  new days of the clan society.    Both  were groups of people of the same  name, who olalmed the right to elect  their   own   leaders,   who   considered  themselves as members of one great  family, and,  as such,  bound  to help  each other in adversity, sickness, or  danger.   It Is interesting to note that  there is a traceable relationship between the time of a clan's misfortune  as a historical entity and its formation of itself into the modern form of  association ��������� the clan society.   Two  of the most cruelly wronged clans in  Scotland were the Mackays  and  the  Macgregors.   Each became the victim  of harsh  oppression,  though  in  dissimilar forms, and we find that theso  two clans were among the very first  to adapt themselves to the new conditions, and, though exiled from their  ancient lands, to ally their respective  members  to face  the  new  problems  as resolutely as their forefathers had  faced  the  old.

Reformation is praiseworthy, and it  ia never too late for people to reform, and change and mend their  ways. Reformation puscoeds from  within, and Is independent of external circumstances.

The British Blue-Jacket  The British Navy is essentially a  service which keeps very much to  Itself, the consequence Delng that the  public know very little of what goes  on Inside of the mystic circle of reticence. It is, however, a profession  in which the moat loyal co-operation  between officers and men has to be  the rule if good results are to be  forthcoming. That they are forthcoming is only too evident when we  ���������read In the newspapers of ships doing  well at target practice, etc.  A naval life Is perforce a very hard  one, for Bailors all the world over,  and unlike their comrades in the  Army, are always living under active  service conditions.

That they take it cheerfully may bo  deduced from the remark of one old  salt of a bygone ern, wlio. In a southwesterly gale in the'English Channel,  and the foretopmast of nls ship having  just broken off close to the cap, remarked to his chum, "Lor' bless me,  Bill, but I'm werry glad I ain't ashore.

As some doubt has been  expressed as to the existence of an  ample   supply   of   iron  ore,  Mr.  Flaherty will go into  tlie subject  very thoroughly.    He left recently  for, Louise island in   tho   Queen  Charlotte   group,    to   examine a  large deposit of magnetite,  said to  exist there.    Other   iron propositions along tho coast, as well as on  Vancouver island will  occupy  his  attention.     Tho   impression  prevails that no difficulty will be found  in securing an  ample  tonnage of  magnetite, but thero is a good deal  of uncertainty as regards hematite,  a variety of iron whoso use will also  tions indefinitely,    All  the mines  in the Ocarnpo camp in tlie state of  Chihuahua,   including  the   Sierra  Mining.Co., suspended  early  last  month and tho camp is dead as far  as mine work is concerned.

In tho Parral section the  Veta Colorado Co. has closed down  its cyanide plant and tho Alvarado  Co, will also suspend on account of  lack of cyanide.     Inasmuch as the  ore-buying agencies  have refused  to accept shipments  many of the  smaller producers have been compelled to quit.

The Hedley Gazette says:    "The  recent find on tho Dayton is likely  to give an  impetus to mining in  the eastern part of tlie Similkameen  riding.    The    Dayton    is an  old  claim on which a strike was made  in the closing  days of  1S9D,  and  some wonderfully rich oro obtained  from   it.    A  couple   of shipment  were made to the smelter and good  returns   received,    although    the  shipments were made under very  unfavorable    conditions   and   the  sampling indifferently carried out,  but   heretofore they   were never  able to obtain tha deposit strongly  in  place.    There   are few camps  that give better encouragement for  exploratory  work at medium cost  than tho ridge between  the north  and south   fork  of   Rock   creek,  and  the  Dayton  claim,   small in  area as it is, should be a good point  from which  to work.

LOST IN STATES  Niagara Falls, March 30.���������Canadian Pacific railway officials  arrived here from Toronto yesterday to look into tho blockade of  cars near the border, and said that  15,000 of tlio company's cars are  lost in tho States. Thoy claim tho  American roads hold them to fill  them with merchandise for Canada,  iuto different departments.   There  is a joy department, a sorrow department, a work department and  a play department.  . The overworking of one of these  departments or cells will cause that  section to become abnormal  to th ev  wakening of the other cells.  When  a  man  or woman  works  continuously at one idea and  allows his  or her brains no let up the joy and  pleasure cells lie dormant for want  cf exercise and  they grow to see  only the one side of life���������tho working side.  The rule works all ways. Too  much pleasure and amusement  satiates thc joy cells and incapacitates man for brain work.  Persons who live for pleasure  alone become so triviai in thought  that their minds lose strength and  can not work except for their own  pleasure.  The persistent worry of illness  devastates tbe brain cells almost  entirely. Womon or men who  work hard with their brains should  take relaxation in the absolutely  opposite manner. Forget work-entirely for a month at a time and  travel or work at manual labor.  Remember: Just as a trainer of  athletes works the' physical body  and then rests it, so must the brain  bo respected.
