The  secretary was instructed to write the  Railway Commission re the dangerous  juxtaposition of the wagon road aud railway at Boundary Falls, owing to the  slowness of .the C, P.

The gross receipts of  the Kiltie concert were $652.75, leaving  the Board of Trade a net profit of #60  The Board now has jfcoo in the bank and  some of the members are becoming too  busy or la^y to attend the meetings.  Frank Taylor, who had his right arm  pulled out at the Mother I,ode a short  time ago, died in the sisters' hospital  Sunday morning. The wounded side  was in a healthy condition and healing  rapidly, when the base of the brain became affected, resulting in meningitis,  from which the patient died in two days.  Deceased was 53 yeais of age. The remains were shipped Tuesday to Pugwash,  Cumberland county, N. S., a large number of the Miners'union and others accompanying the body to the railway  station.  J.  II.  "Maefarl.uie   telunied  from  the  north   last   week.    He   went  as   fat  as  ILi/eltoii, and say*, that the returns from  the I-'iiifllay river district art* not as good  as was anticipated.   There is good placer  ground in the district,  but that gold has  been found in paying quantities, taking  into consideration the cost of supplies, is  doubtful.   Nearly all the work ou the  western end cftlie 0. T. P. has been sublet, ami in many cases two or three limes,  so that there is very little' left for either  contractor or laborer.    He saw Angus  Nicholson and Geo. R.  Naden, M. V. ]������,,'  in   the north.   The   former has a subcontract for clearing right of way, and  the latter has a milling jind real estate  oflice'in-.Prince 'Rupert. ���������. There is   vet  very little stir iu  the terminal city of the  Grand Trunk Pacific.  Poker Johnson from Oioville did quite  a business in Greenwood upon celebration days with his auto. For taking  those curious to ride from town to the  ball grounds in an auto he received $6$  in one day. Hard times are soon forgotten in the copper metropolis.  At   Saturday   night's meeting of the  Greenwood Miners' union Geo. Pleather-  ton   was  elected   financial secretary, to  fill the vacancy caused by the  resignation of R. A.  Matheson.   Mr. Heather-  ton has been a resident of the district for  about ten years.   He is interested in a  uumber of prospects on which he has au-  nually done as sessment, and in the off  periods worked in  the mines for a grubstake.   Lately  he has not, like a large  number of other Canadians, or Americans,  been able to secure employment in any  of the mines of the district.   We congratulate Mr. Heatherton  upon his election, and also congratulate the union on  securing a man of his sterling worth for  so important a position.    Chas.   Bierce  was  elected   pr������.!,.rte!*t,    and   Chas.   G.  Johnson, vice president    *  Honey for Nelson.  The editor of Kaslo's leading paper  broke away from the canned monotony  of his existence on Dominion Day and  mixed in the scenery of Nelson. Although the spoons were stamped at the  Hume hotel Joe evidently got a square  meal and a heap'- of red lemonade, for  upon his return to that second edition of  the Garden of Eden���������Kaslo, he loaded  tke mono, with tlie following honeyed  words :  " When Nelson arranges a celebration  it is a dollar to the hole in a doughnut  that it will be a good oue and well worth  tatmg-iiir-Things are generally pulled  off on schedule time and visitors are always treated nice. F.ven the hotclsJdo  not soak the guests or skimp the grub.  "The Hume hotel has the reputation  of setting up the best 'square' in  the in-  tenor of this province.   The clerks are  ODhging  and   uever  cheek}-.    Manager  Tompkins has an imposing scowl but is  really as gentle as a kitten.    The cream  is the genuine article,  the milk  is not  trimmed with water aud the soup is more  than one-eighth of one per cent, solid  matter.   The table silver is all stamped  in order to discourage guests from taking portions of it away to use as souvenirs.  " The Nelson people are very honest.  During holidays aud occasions whenever  business houses are closed up tight, the  Daily News staff go awav,  leaving the  doors wide open and no one to guard the  till, yet the Nelson people uever seize the  oppoi tunity to go in and steal anything.  This is the first time that we have ever  observed the people of any locality neglecting a chance to rob the printer.  "There are plenty of girls in Nelson,  but they are away below the Kaslo standard ot looks. They are inv.iriablv well  dressed, as are also the men, who'affect  the balloon-shaped britches, several acres  of tie, high collars aud turned-up pant  legs in vogue in the large cities. Some  of them luue mastered the science of  appearing to have a million a year when  "their salary amounts to ten'dollars a  week.  . immigrants   from   Idaho  passed through Keremeos the other day  on their way to Bulkley valley. They  are traveling iu prairie schooners much  the same as people crossed the plains before the railroad era.  A dispatch from Nelson says that  Charley Walmsley has put guides ou tlie  hands of his dummy. The dummy's  hands were so small that he could not  clutch over 50 cents' worth of whitechips  at one time.  On Dominion Day the street cars of  Vancouver carried 80,000passengers, without losing one of the number. This is a  wonderful record for a city in which so  many lives are lost by street car accidents.  Three men have left tlie Yukon to  search for the gold near Herschel island.  It is reported that the eutire formation is  virgin gold. Probablv the dream, of some  demented prospector.  There are about fifty men in Trinee  Rupert eager to sell whiskey and break  the law. Booze is being sold in that city  in a few places but the police are too myopic to locate the vendors.  Dan Taylor, one of the old-timers of  Nelson, may have something to say about  the townsite of Prince Rupert. Some  time ago he located 160 acres of it with  South African wur scrip.  In London Mark Twain was once mis-  taken-for Buffalo Bill. While in Calgary  the;other.day a Rube from Regiiia  thought Peck MacSwain' was a'tempef-  ance lecturer.  " ~ " - ,,-���������  On the V., V. & E., between Keremeos  and Hedley, there are. 60,000 yards of  filling yet to be doue, which means that  it will be near Christmas before the cars  run into Hedley.  American    theatrical    companies    no  longer have to pay duty upon the scenery  they bring [into  Canada, provided it is    .  not kept in the Dominio.i longer than  six months.  , I,0I.f Northcliffc failed in his efforts to  buy The Times in London. He still has  a chance to get the Rossland Miner and  one or two other papers in B. C.  Fred. Dcmuth has moved from Ross-  land to Grand Forks. He has been appointed general superintendent of tlie  Kettle Valley railroad.  P- Burns & Co. are clearing up their  \ooo-acre ranch near Ladncr on the  Fraser river. On it they will raise hav,  hogs and sheep. '  In the next general  election  the Socialist^ will run five candidates in B. C  three in  Alberta and several in the eastern provinces.

SPANKim.   I  The lid was off in Greenwood during  Hie celebration days and the populace  clustered around thc poker, blackjack  and roulette tables like a baud of Arabs  around a tank of- ice water upon the  desert of Sahara. Ed. O'Brieu came  oyer from Oroville and stood behind the  wheel in the Victoria. He was out of  luck, for even the two zeros could not  save- hitn and lie quit $60 iii the cellar.  The genial Ed. hurried back to Oroville,  where he played even selling schooners  on the. Fourth of July. At the Pacific  Gene Shcu .and Batt Ilowen twisted the  little ball. From the way Gene was buying drinks and the smile Batt had on his  face the goddess of chance must have  been kind to the stalwarts from Phoenix.

Seven o'clock next morning found  us entering Table Buy, our eventful  Journey accomplished. Overhead  lowered the famous mountain from  which the Buy derives its name, its  Lop shrouded In its cloth. At its foot  reposed the town with which my destiny seemed so vitally connected, and  which I wus approaching with so much  trepidation. As 1 stood on the promenade dock and watched tho land open  out before me, my sensations would  havo formed a good problem for a  .student of character. With a perception rendered abnormally acute by  my four, I could discern the boat of  the port authorises putting off to us  long before I should, at any other time,  have boon able lo see it. It had yet  to be discovered whether or not it  contained a police official In search  of me. As i watched her dipping her  nose Into the seas, and then tossing  ihe spray off from either bow, in her  haste to get to us, she seemed to mo  to be like a bloodhound on my track.  Tho closer she came the more violently my nenrt began to beat, until it  was as much as 1 could do to breathe.  If only I could be certain that She  was convoying an officer to arrest  me, I felt I might find pluck enough  to drop overboard and so end the pursuit for good and all. But I did not  know, and tho doubt upon the point  decided me to remain where I was  and bravo the upshot.  As 1 watched her, 1 hoard a footstep  upon the dock behind mo. I turned ray  head to find that it was Miss Maybourne. She came up beside mo, and  having glanced ashore at the city  nestling at the foot of the great mountain, and then at the launch coming  out to meet us, turned to address me.  "Mr. Wrexford," she began, "I am  going to ask you to do me a groat  favor, and I want you to promise me  to grant it before I tell you what It  is."  "I'm afraid I can hardly do that," I  answered. "But if you will tell me  what it is, I will promise to do it for  you if it is in any way possible."  "It is this," she said: "I want you,  in the event of my father not meeting  mo, to take me home. Oh don't say-  no, Mr. Wrexford, I want you so much  to do it. Surely you will not deny me  the last request I make to you?"  She looked so pleadingly into my  face that, as usual, it required all my  courage not to give way to her. But  tho risk was too great for me even to  contemplate such a thing for a moment. My rescue of the daughter of  Cornelius Maybourne, and my presence-in Cape Town, would soon leak  out, and then it would bo only a matter of hours before I should be arrested. Whatever my own inclinations  may have boon, I felt " there -was ���������  nothing for it but for mo to refuse.  "I am not my own master in this  matter," I replied, with a bitterness  which must have shown her how  much in earnest I was. "It is impossible that I can remain so long in the  place. There are the most vital reasons in the world against it. I can  only ask you to believe that."  I saw large tears rise in her eyes,  though she turned hurriedly away in  tho hope that I should not see them.  To see her weep, however, was more  than I could bear, and under the influence of her trouble my resolutions  began to give way. After all, if I was'  destined to be arrested, I might just  as well bo taken at Mr. IMaybourne's  house us elsewhere���������perhaps better.  Besides, it was more than likely, in  the event of no warrant having been  issued, Mr. Maybourne, whose influence, I had been told, was enormous  in tho colony, might prove just the  very friend of all others I wanted. At  any rate, if I were not taken before  the time came for going ashore, I  would do as she wished. I told her  this, and she immediately thanked  me and went down below again.  Just as I announced my decision  the launch came alongside, and a moment later her passengers were ascending the accommodation ladder,  ���������which had been .lowered to receive  them. They were three in number,  and included���������so I was told by a  gentleman who stood beside me���������the  harbor master, the officer of health,'  and another individual, about whose  Identity my informant was not quite  assured. 1 looked at the last-named  with no little apprehension; my nervousness endowed him with all the  attributes of a police official, and my  mind's eye could almost discover the  manacles reposing in his coat pocket.  I trust I may never pass through such  another agonizing few minutes as I  experienced then. I saw the party  step on to the spar deck, where they  shook hands with the purser and chief  officer, and watched them as they ascended to the promenade deck and  made their way towards the bridge.  Here they were received by the skipper. I leaned against the rails, sick  with fear and trembling in every limb,  expecting every moment to feel a  heavy hand upon my shoulder, and  to hear a stern voice saying in my  ear���������"Gilbert Pennethorno, I arrest  you on a charge of murder."  But minute after minute went by,  .and still not one came to speak tho  fatal words. The ship, which had  been brought to a standstill to pick  up the boat, had now got under weigh  again, and we were approaching close  again, and we were approaching  closer and closer to the docks. In less  than half an hour I should know my  fate.  As soon as we wore safely Installed  in dock, and everyone was looking  after his or Jier luggage, saying "goodbye" and preparing to go ashore, I  began to look about mo for Miss Maybourne. Having found her wo went  to the chart-room together to bid tho  Captain "good-bye," and to thank  him for the hospitality and kindness  he had shown us. The doctor had  next to bo discovered, and when he  had been assured of our gratitude, wo  made enquiries for Mr. Maybourne.  It soon became evident that ho was  not on board, so, taking his daughter  under my protection, we said our final  farewells and went down the gangway. For the first time In my life I  set foot on South African soil.  The Custom House once passed,  and tho authorities convinced that we  had nothing to declare, I hulled a cub  and invited Miss Maybourne to Instruct tho driver In which direction  lie wus to proceed. Half an hour lator  we had left tho city bohlnd us, and  ("fence. After roirowmg a pretty road  for something like a mile, on either  -side of which 1 noticed a number of  stalely residences, we found ourselves confronted with a pair of large  Iron gates, behind which was a neat  lodge. But for the difference in the  vegetation, It might very well have  been the entrance to an English park.  Through the trees ahead I could distinguish, as we rolled along the well-  kept drive, the chimneys of a noblo  residence; but I was quite unprepared for the picture which burst upon my view when we turned a corner  and had the whole house before us.  Unlike most Soulh African dwellings,  it was a building of throe stories,  surmounted by a tower. Broad verandahs ran round each floor, and the  Importance of the building was enhanced by the fact that It stood on a  fine terrace, which again led down by  a broad flight of steps to the flower  gardens and orangery. A more delightful homo could scarcely be imagined;  and when 1 saw it, I ceased to wonder that Miss Maybourne had so often  experossod a preference for South  Africa as compared with England.  When the cab drew up at tho front  door 1 jumped out, and was about to  help my companion to alight when I  heard the front door open, and next  moment a tall, fine-looking man,  about sixty years of age, crossed the  verandah and came down the steps.  At first ho regarded me with a stare  of surprise, but before he could ask  me my business, Miss Maybourne had  descended from the vehicle and was  in his arms. Not desiring to interrupt  them in their greetings I strolled  down tho path. But I was not permitted to go far before I .hoard my  name called. I turned, and went back  to have my hand shaken off by Mr.  Maybourne.  "My daughter says you have saved  hor life," he cried. "I'll not ask questions now, but I thank you, sir���������from  the bottom of my heart I thank you.  God knows you have done me a service the value of which* no man can  estimate."  The warmth of his manner was so  much above what I had expected that  it left me without power to reply.  "Come in, come in," he continued  in a voice that fairly shook with emotion. "Oh, .let us thank God for this  happy day!"  He placed his arm round his  daughter's waist, and drew her to him  as if he would not lot hor move from  his side again. I followed a few steps  behind, and should have entered the  house had I not been recalled by the  cabman, ,who ventured to remind me  that he had not yet been paid.  I instantly put my hand into my  pocket, only to have the fact recalled  to me that I possessed no money at  all. All my capital had gone to the  bottom in the Fiji Princess, and I was  absolutely penniless. The position  was an embarrassing one, and I was  just reflecting what I had better do,  when I heard Mr. Maybourne come  out into tho verandah again. He must  havo divined my difficulty, for without  hesitation he discharged the debt, and  apologizing for not having thought of  it, led me into the house.  Passing through an elegantly-furnished hall we entered tho dining-  room. Here breakfast was laid, and  it was evidently from that meal that  Mr. Maybourne had jumped up to receive us.  "Now, Mr. Wrexford," he cried,  pointing to a chair, "sit yourself down  yonder, and let me hoar everything  from the beginning "to the* ciuV-Heav.  en knows I can hardly believe my  good fortune. Half an hour ago I was  the most miserable man under the  sun! now that I have got my darling  back safe and sound, I believe I am  the happiest."  "Had you then heard of the wreck  of the 'Fiji Princess?' " I enquired.  "Here is a telegram I received last  night," he said handing me a paper  he had taken from his pocket. "You  see it is from Teneriffe, and says that  nothing has yet been heard of the  vessel which was then more than a  fortnight overdue. Agnes tells me that  you wero rescued by the King of Carthage. I understood she was expected  about mid-day to-day, and I had resolved to visit her as soon as she got  Into dock, In order to enquire if they  had any tidings to report regarding  the lost vessel: Plow little I exnectetl  to find that you were safe on board  her, Aggie! Mr. Wrexford, you can  have no idea of the agony I have  suffered this week past."  "On the contrary," I answered, "I  think I can very well imagine it."  "And now tell me your story. I must  not be cheated of a single detail."  I saw from the way he looked at  me that he expected me to do the  narrating, so I did so, commencing  with the striking of the vessel on the  rock, and winding up with an account  of our rescue by the King of Carthage.  He listened with rapt attention until  I had finished, and then turned to his  daughter.  "Has Mr. Wrexford told me everything?" he asked with a smile.  "No," she answered. "He has not  told you half enough. He has not told  you that when I fell overboard one  night, when we were off the Spanish  coast, he sprang over after me and  held me up until a boat came to our  assistance. He has not told you that  when the vessel sank he gave his own  life-belt up to me, nor has he given  you any idea of his constant kindness  and self-sacrifice all through that  dreadful time."  Mr. Maybourne rose from his chair  as she finished speaking,'and came  round to where I sat. Holding out his  hand to me, he said, with tears standing in his eyes:  "Mr. Wrexford, you are a brave  man, and from the bottom of my  heart I thank you. You have saved  my girl, and brought her home safe  to me; as long as I live I shall not be  able to repay the.deht I owe you. Remember, however, that henceforth I  am your truest friend."  But I must draw a curtain over this  scene. If I go into any further details  I shall break down again as I did then.  Suffice it tliat Mr. Maybourne refused  to hear of my leaving his house as I  proposed, but insisted that I should  remain as his guest until I had decided what I intended to do with myself.  "For the future you must look upon  this as your home in South Africa,"  he said. "I seem powerless to express !  my gratitude to you as I should like.  But a time may come when I may  even be able to do that."  "You have more than repaid me,  I'm sure," I replied.' "I have every  reason to be deeply grateful to you  for the way you have received mo."  He replied In his former strain, and  when he had done so, the conversation  turned upon those who had been lost  In the ill-fated Fiji Princess, It was  easy to see. that his brother-in-law's  death cut him to the quick. ���������  After luncheon that day I found  myself alone with Mr, Maybourne. I  was not sorry for this, as I wantod to  sound him as to my futuro movements. As I have no ofton said, I had  no sort of deslro to remain In Capo  Town, and judgod that tho sooner I  was up country, and out of civlllza-  woro driving through tho suburbs in     U������n, the better It would bo for mo.  the dlrecxlxin of.Mx.Jiai-Unuxno'8 mid, '    ."You must tovcWn.mz. bolnc frai  frank  wiiir you, *vir.-"wrexiora,~* stua'**"iRy  host, as we lit cigars preparatory to  drawing our chairs into the verandah; "but I have gathered from what  you yourself have said and from what  my daughter has told me, that you  are visiting South Africa on the  chance of obtaining some sort of employment. Is this so?"  "That is exactly why I am here,"  I said. "I am most anxious to find  something to do as soon as possible."  "In what direction will you seek it?"  he asked. "What is your inclination?  Remember, I may be able to help you."  "I am not at all particular," I answered. "I have knocked about the  world a good deal, and I can turn my  hand to most things. But if a choice  were permitted me, 1 fancy I should  prefer mining of some sort to anything else."  "Indeed! I had no idea you understood that sort of work."  "I have done a good deal of it," I  replied, with a little touch of pride,  for which next moment I found it difficult to account, considering the result  to which it had brought me.  He asked one or two practical questions, which I was fortunately able  to answer-to his satisfaction, and then  was silent for a couple of minutes or  so. At last he consulted his pocket  book, and then turned to me again.  "I fancy, Mr. Wrexford," ho said,  "that you have come in tho nick of  time for both of us. We may bo able  to do each other mutual services."  "I am very glad to hear that," I answered. "But in what possible way  can I help you?"  "Well, the matter stands like this,"  he said. "As you are doubtless aware,  my business is mostly in connection  with mining, both in this colony and  its neighbors. Well, information has  lately reached me concerning what  promises to prove a first-class property in Mashonaland. cighty-fivo miles  from Buluwayo. The mine has been  excellently reported on, and is now  being got into good going order. It  only needs a capable manager at its  head to do really well. Of course such  a man is easily procured in a country -where every man seems to be  engaged in mining, more or less; and  yet for that very self-same reason I  am unable to make a selection. The  available men all know too much, and  I have private reasons for wishing  this mine to be well looked after.  Now the question is, would you care  for the post?"  Needless to say, I embraced the opportunity in much the same manner  as a hungry trout jumps at a fly. If I  could only manage to get up there  without being caught the appointment  would suit me in every way. Mr. Maybourne seemed as pleased at my acceptance of it as I was'at his offer;  and when, after a little further conversation���������in which I received many  useful hints and no small amount of  advice���������it was revealed to his daughter, she struck me as being even more  delighted than either her father or  myself. I noticed that Mr. Maybourne  looked at ner rather anxiously for a  moment as if ho suspected there might  be some sort of understanding between us, but whatever he may have  thought he kept it to himself. Pie  need, however, have had no fear on  that score. Circumstances had placed  an insurmountable barrier between  myself and .any thought of marriage  wilh his daughter.  As the result of our conversation,  and at my special desire, it was arranged   that  I  should  start for  my  - post- on~t'i(?-_follow'lii���������������day._N<>body.  could have  been more eager than I  was to bo out in tho wilds. But, with  il all, my heart felt sad when I thought  that after to-morrow  I  might never  seo the woman I so   ardently   loved  again. Since the previous night, when  on the promenade-deck of the steamer I had told her of my love, neither  of us had referred in any way to the  subject. So remote was the    chance  that I should ever be able to make  her my wife that I determined so far  as possible,  to prevent myself from  giving any thought to the idea. But I  was not destined after all to leave  without referring to the matter.  That evening after dinner we were  sitting in the verandah outside the  drawing-room, when the butler came  to inform Mr. Maybourne that a  neighbor had called to see him. Asking us to excuse him for a few moments he .left us and went into the  house. When we wero alone together  I spoke to my companion of her  father's kindnessfi and told her how  much I appreciated it. She u-tered a  little sigh, and as this seemed an extraordinary answer to my speech, I  enquired tho reason of it.  "You say you arc going away tomorrow," she answered, "and yet you  ask me why I sigh! Cannot you  guess?"  "Agnes," I said, "you know I have  no option but to go. Do not let us go  over the ground we covered last night.  It would be best "not for both bur  sakes; you must see that yourself."  "You know that I Jove you, and I  know that you love me���������and yet you  can go away so calmly. What can  your love be worth?"  "You know what it is worth," I  answered vehemently, roused out of  myself by this accusation! "And if  ever the chance occurs again of proving it you will be afforded another  example. I cannot say more."  "And is it always to be like this,  Gilbert," she asked, for the first time  calling me by my Christian name.  "Are we to be separated all our  lives?"  "God knows���������I fear so," I murmured, though it cut me to the heart to  have to say the words.  She bowed her head on her hands  with a little moan, while I, feeling  that I should not be able to control  myself much longer, sprang to my  feet and went across to the verandah  rails. For something like five minutes  I stood looking Into the dark garden,  then I pulled myself together as well  as I was able and went back to my  chair.  "Agnes," I said, as I took possession of her little hand, "you cannot  guess what it costs mo to tell you  how impossible it is for me over to  link my lot with yours. The reason  why I cannot tell you. My secret Is  the bitterest one a man can have to  keep, and it must remain locked in  my own breast for all time. Had I  met you earlier it might havo been  very different���������but now our ways  must bo sepa *.ite for ever. Don't  think more hardly of mo than you  can help, dear. Remember only that  as long.as I live I shall call no other  woman wife. Henceforward I will try  to be worthy of tne interest you havo  felt In me. No one shall ever havo the  right to say ought against mo; and,  If by chance you hear good of me In  the dark days to come, you will know  that it Is for lovo of you I rule my  life. May God bless and keep you always."  She held up her sweet faco to mo,  and I kissed her on the -lips. Then,  Mr. Muybourno returned to the verandah; and, half-an-hour later, feeling  that fathor and daughter would llko  a little time alone together before  thoy retired to rest, I begged thorn to  excuse mc, and on a pretence of feel-  ljur tired wont tottnv room.

Not no many years uuo Calcutta was  in usr.ly collection ol buildings in  -.tuccJ iitni wattle flung anyhow be-  ,>iuu the Hoogluy between Garden  Lisuch aud Oossipur. It used to be  jailed the "City of Palaces," for the  .iiuple reason, probably, that there  was no such tliingd in or near it, except the stately - Government House  built by Marquis Wcllesley, and the  bijou residence of the Lieutenant-  Governor of Bengal, at Alipore. For  the rest it was made up, at its  ���������iuutlierii end, of big square houses  built to accommodate merohant-  princcs with strong Seottish accents,  cheek by jowl with mud huts, reeking  of "ghee," swarming with flies, and  rampant with the microbes of cholera,  smallpox and plague. That was the  Kuropeun quarter. To the north  dwelt ninety-nine hundredths of the  Indian population, from the Rajah in  his palace to tho coolie who paid a  rupee a month for the privilege of  sleeping in a sort of trough outside  some more lucky, householder's door.  Northern Calcutta, was, and is, ia  labyrinth, in which slum and mansion jostle with each other more recklessly than they used to in the European quarter, and threaded by lanes  more narrow and tortuous than those  of Pompeii.  Nowadays no one speaks or thinks  of Calcutta as a City of Palaces, and  yet, in comparison with its status a  decade and a half iigo, it is growing  to have quite a metropolitan dignity.  The improvements .vhich have been  going on steadily for the last ten years  have hitherto boon mostly confined to  its southern end. Stately buildings  are rising along tho whole length' of  the noblo boulevard of Chowringhee.  Dalhousie square, with its sheet of  water, its splendid, perimeter, and its  massive frontage, "is certainly ono of  the finest.squares in the world. Electric tramways intersect the whole  town. Electric light is in universal  uso. Insanitary "bustoes" (the collections of mud huts referred to) have  been swept away. Broad thoroughfares are being opened up every year.  Handsome residences, tlie Italian  architecture of which is carefully  adapted to Indian conditions, are  transforming the suburbs. Malarial  fever, which kills nearly as many Indians in a day as plague does in. a  year, is being "stamped out; and, but  for tho heat during eight months in  the year, which we counter very successfully indoors by means of electric  fans, "alcutta nowadays does as much  credit to India as most European  capitals do to the countries which  support them ��������� and perhaps a good  deal more than some.  Calcutta is one of the most polyglot  capitals in the world. The last census  shows 57 languages are spoken in it.  Not many of these, 'of course, are  spoken by large sections of its million inhabitants, but English, Bengali, Urdu, Hindi, and Uriya, are the  media through which its trade and  commerce are mainly carried on;  while as regards the schools, Sanskrit,  Persian, and Arabic fill a more important place than Greek and Latin,  French, German, or Italian do in  England. Bengali is the most numerously spoken of the vernaculars. It  has a mellow, pleasant cadence, not  unlike Italian; and, although it is a  comparatively modern language, it  has a great wealth of literature, journalistic and other. Half a dozen Bengal newspapers are published daily,  while of weekly vernacular papers the  name is legion.  A SHARP SWORD IN INDIA.  Lord Kitchener Sees No Possibility of  Reducing  Charges.  Lord Kitchener, speaking in the  Legislative Council at Calcutta on the  Indian budget, said some members  had alluded to a possible reduction of  the military'"charges owing to the recent agreement with and the cordial  relations existing between the great  northern power and ourselves.  This factor had not been overlooked nor underrated, but other weighty  reasons affecting the external and internal security of India must be kept  constantly in view.  Lord Minto expressed hearty agreement with Lord Kitchener's views  with regard to military charges, and  said that the Commander-in-Chief's  scheme had recently enable India to  draw a sharper and belter sword than  ever before. The result had been a  remarkable success from the point of  view of brevity and economy.  Conger Cruelty.  The Ilfracombo.: magistrates have  decided that a conger eol in a hawker's barrow is a wild animal'in captivity; and fined John Conibeare, an  itinerant vendor offish, 55 for cutting  lengths off it without going through  the customary formality of killing the  eel rirst. The case was a test one  brought by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, whose  solicitor narrated the following facts:  Conibeare in the.'���������morning"bought, a  30 lb. conger which had been landed  alive, and'hawked it about the streets  in his barrow. He sold five pounds ol  it in the evening, and cut it off from  the tail end. There wii3 u second sale  of three pounds, and while these portions were being severed the conger  struggled and snapped at tho sidea oi  the cart. "A veterinary surgeon said  tliat as the nerve centre had not been  destroyed the. eel was sensitive to pain.  Coniboaro admitted tliat he had not  killed the conger, nnd, although his  solicitor argued that the severance ol  tlie spino would make il immune from  pain, he was convicted.  A Chance Masting.

The Quantity of Seed  Required���������The  -   Best Time to Sow.  Prof. Saunders, of the Dominion  Experimental Farm, in "a ��������� pamphlet  on flax growing, published in 18S6,  said:���������-"When flax is grown for its  seed only it is usual to sow from two  to three pecks per acre, and when thus  thinly sown the plants are much  branched, and are said to average a  larger yield of seed. This, however,  seems to require further investigation, and the character of the season  may influence the results very much.  Prom tests made on the Experimental  Farm at Brandon, Man., in 1894, it  would appear that heavier seeding  may be desirable, even when flax is  grown for the seed only. These experiments were made on plots of one-  tenth of an acre each on land which  hud been 'summer fallowed, with the  following  results:���������  "Sown K'lh May, 40 lbs. seed per  acre, ripe Kith .August, yield per acre,  19 bush., 20 lbs.  "Sown ICth May, 90 lbs. seed per  acre, ripe 10th August, yield per acre,  20 bush., 50 lbs. '      '  "In these experiments the "flax "was  sown with* tlie grain drill, cut with a  binder, and threshed with the separator, care being taken to feed 'slowly.  "Experiments were also conducted  at Brandon in 1894 in sowing at different dates with the following results :���������  "Sown 11th May, 90 lbs. seed per  acre, ripe 13th August, yield per aero,  18 bush.,  12 lbs.  "Sown 19th May, 90 lbs. .seed per  acre, ripe lGth August, yield per acre,  20 bush., 50 lbs.   .  "Sown 22nd May, 90 lbs. seed per  acre, ripe 22nd August, yield per acre.  21 bush.,  14 lbs.  "These experiments will need to bo  repeated for several years before any  general conclusions can be'drawn from  them. At the Experimental Farm ut  Indian Head in 1890 the heaviest  crop of flax seed was produced when  sown on tho 17th May, while in 1891  good results were had fiom seed  sown on the 3rd of June.  "From the experience thus far  gained, it would appear that the  best time for sowing flax throughout  the Canadian North-West would be  from the 15th to tho 25th of May.  Thc flax plant is tender in thc spring  and easily injured by frost. It is less  liable to injury from this cause in  the autumn; but if exposed to much  frost before the seed is ripe, tho seeds  become dark and discolored, nnd are  then very much reduced in value."  Some experienced flax-growers hold  that it is safe to sow flaxseed as late  as June 15th, and that good results  have been obtained sowing even later,  but thc general .opinion seems to be  that the best time for sowing is the  last two weeks of May and the early  days of June. -    -  Prof. Saunders strongly recommends  flaxseed as a good crop to be sown  either on first breaking of the prairie  sod or on back-setting. He says:���������  "To make this clear to those who are  unacquainted with the methods of  prairie farming, it may be said that  the first breaking on prairie sod .is  made by turning over a" wide and  shallow furrow about two inches  thick. When this is done in the  spring, the land is ready for backsetting in the autumn, by which is  meant a second ploughing running  across the breaking' to a depth of  about four inches. This cuts the decayed sod. turns is over and covers  it with about two inches of- fresh  soil .from below."  ���������  * A  Fire, litihtnind       \  Rust and Storm Proof  Durable and  Ornamental  Let us know the size of any roof  you are thinking of covering and we  will make you an interesting offer.

Judges Consider Petition to His Majesty From Ceylon.  A'remarkable appeal to "the King  from a sentence of death, subsequently commuted to twenty yeais' imprisonment, coming from Ceylon, was le-  ceutly. considered by, a judicial ..committee in London.  The judges taking part were the  Lord Chancellor, and Loids Ashbourne, Macnaghten, Kobeitson, Atkinson, and Collins.  The petitioners were two Cingalese  ladies���������sisters���������-named Loku Nona and  Punch i Nona, and their servant, Wai-  tnn, a boy, aged 14, -whose alleged  offoneo was the murder of a maid,  iianw-d Carlina, at Talahena, Ceylon,  in July last.  The trial of the accused took place  at Colombo in November last and lasted eleven days���������a jury of seven���������by a  majority of six'to one���������convicted all  three defendants.  Mr. Justice Renton, at tlie request  of the prisoners' counsel, stated a case  for the consideration of the Supreme-  Court", who upheld the conviction and  sentf-ncs.  His Majesty was now asked to grant  special leave of appeal on the grounds  that tlie injuries alleged to have been  inflicted by the accused were not proved to have caused the death; that the  judge, in his charge to tho jury, erred  ir. law and made statements not warranted by the evidence, and that there  was no legal evidence to warrant tho  conviction. ,  ��������� The story for the prosecution was  that on the night of July 31, at about  ten,, Loku Nona, with a club handed  to : lior by Peregrino (a .manservant),  struck Carlina, a girl of about 18, on  the lipad; that Carlina fell, crying  "Anima" (mother), ,that Punchi Nona  put her hand over Carlina's mouth  to stop,further-cries; riind that Loku  Nona then told Jane ��������� a servant girl  about 14���������to bring a knife.  Jane then brought a knife from the  kitchen, and gave it Loku Nona, who  handed it to Punchi Nona, saying,  "Cut her throat"; that while Waitan  held his ,hand. over Carlina's mouth  Punchi Nona inflicted, a cut with tho  knife upon Carlina's tliroat; that Carlina then lay still, apparently dead,  and that shortly afterwards Carlina's  body was carried away towards the  shore, to be thrown into the sea.  According to the medical-evidence  the cut on the throat was^ot fatal,  and the cause of death was concussion .of the brain, produced by some  blunt instrument like a club.

Evkuy smile is a  step  towards  heaven.    Dunns and  not love prove thc  depth  of love.  Tin-* way to  hell   is  paved with  hard-luck stories.  W i* can see  the  fool  in others,  but nob in ourselves.  Somi-* men nover drink except  when living with their wives.  BictNO a coal town one would  naturally expect to find -the Elaek  Hand in Fernie.  Vaiui-ty is the spice of life.  Even kissing the same woman all  the time becomes monotonous.  In some parts of E. C. it is quite  a heavy tax upon the people to  properly support the saloons and  churches.          Whkn discovered by the world  Slocan lake district will become  one of the great summer resorts of  the world.   TJali* of our diseases can be  cured by forgetting ourselves, and  the other half by living entirely in  the open air.         One bad egg will spoil an entire  case,' and one egotistical, jealous,  fault-finding woman will poison an  entire household.  With l'armeis east and west of  us there is no reason why Greenwood should not have an agricultural fair every fall..  Ii* money "was-"as -easy - to-bur-  row as trouble we- know several  people who would be multi-millionaires in a week.  We have many bright business  men in the Boundary, but their  education in the art of advertising  has been sadly neglected.  Tiir church and the grafters  control the government of Canada.  The common people put up the  money and have the privilege of  voting. ���������          There.was a sensation in Xel-  son the other day. One of the old  inhabitants left ten cents on a  restauraut table and the waiter  dropped dead.  A gkeat many people suffer  from diseased imagination. They  think they are sick when all they  need is hard work and less time to  think about themselves.  We are still largely savage.  That is why we shoot off lire-  crackers, beat drums, hoist flags  and lose our dignity upon certain  days of the year that commemorate  dead events.       ,  The man with progressive idea,s  in reference to church, state and  society is always hooted at hy those  .whose brains are mud. A jackass  will bray at an express train while  packing goods for its owner.  Is nearly every town in B. C.  that contains Chinamen in any  ntimbers can be found one or more  opium joints. Hop is smoked by  quite a number of white people in  this province, with a few coke and  hypo fiends to vary the misery,  Or.D age can be staved off for  many years by drinking a quart of  buttermilk every day. Add a little olive oil to your food and your  chances of a long life will be  doubled, provided you exercise  temperance in all things and keep  on being as cheerful as Jack Lucy.  It is estimated that the production of copper in North America  this year will amount to 422,000  tons, an increase of 25,000 tons  over the production of last year.  Copper is becoming a trade barometer and its rise or fall denotes  the conditions of business all over  the continent.  In Victoria a few days ago, Miss  Elizabeth Daniels completed her  hundredth birthday iu good health  and spirits. She partly ascribes  her long life to the fact that she  lias not taken any medicines for  sixty years. We would like to  know if tbo venerable lady uses tea  or coffee, aud if she has found any  virtue in buttermilk as a foe to ago  Wi-: aro almost inclined to believe that some dogs can read.  Last week we announced that the  (log Peter, who' hangs around this  print shop, had been lost. Two  (lays later Poto'came running into  our oflico wil.li a menu card iuliin  mouth".

Complaints reach us from time  to time from people claiming to  having been robbed in some of the  saloons of Greenwood. These unfortunate people should mako definite statemenls 'is to name, and  place, and tell their troubles to the  police. We do not run a'detective  agency, _���������  Some .business men carry sentiment iuto their adverti-siug. They  advertise in a Grit or Tory paper  according to their feelings politically, but none carry the sentiment  so far as to refuse to sell goods to  a man who differs from them in  polities. Any merchant who allows politics to interfere with his  advertising should retire into private life. He is too sensitive to  court publicity.  Fiiom the reports in the press it-  appears that Foley, Welch &  Stewart are paying scab wages to  the men who are helping them  build the G. T. P. railway out of  Prince Rupert. Jack Stewart of  this great firm of railway contractors put himself on, record in  -���������aying that his linn would not employ Japaneso or other Asifttie  labor in B. O. Where is the difference between hiring Jap labor  or paying Jap prices for white  labor?   YA.cctxATi.vii to prevent smallpox is simply blood poisoning with  animal matter aud increases tuberculosis. Few people die of smallpox in Canada, but thousands die  of the white plague. The white  plague is propagated hy vaccine.  The compulsory * vaccination of  children in Canada will he a gigantic blunder, a fearful injustice  to the rising generation, aud a  sacrifice to medical superstition.  The press of the Dominion should  rise against it.  In the interior of B. C,1 quite a  number of Hindus are working at  the sawmills for S3.50 a day or  less. They live principally upon  flour and water. ��������� Once or  twice a week they may get some  pork or a chicken. As the cow is  sacred in India, they will not eat  beef, which no doubt helps to keep  their teeth from wearing out.  Quite a, number of them since  coming to this country have learned  to drink liquor and to use tobacco.  They do not work on Sundays,  which inspires us with the hope  tnafRome" 'day'"'they may-become  Presbyterians.  To fouck vaccination upon  3-'>,000 children in this province before they can again attend the public schools is a sop to medical'  superstition, and an outrage upon  the innocent young. Long ago  fear and filth gave smallpox a  clumce to decimate the , human  race, but under the attacks of  modern sanitation its virility has  become almost impotent and no  oue with a clean mind and body  need fear this pustulous affliction.  There is not one single case of  proof on record that vaccination  has saved anyone from contracting  smallpox, but thousands have died  or suffered injury from being inoculated with filthy vaccine poison.  Through faith and .imagination  vaccination may lend courage to  the ignorant, untutored or unthinking mind aud fortify it mentally  against the disease rendering immunity through a lack of fear, but  from a physical standpoint it is  one of the greatest fakes and delusions ever foisted upon a fear-  cursed and superstitious universe.  To practically force vaccination  upon 33,000 innocent children  looks.to us like tho offering of a  huge sacrifice to the fetid fetich of  decayed and moss-grown medical  science. Away with such a horror, and let the blood of the young  be pure!  The Prince Rupert Empire says  that thire is not a single newspaper  in H. 0. free to discuss a public  question upon its merits, nor an  editor who does not allow monetary or other considerations to  swing his opinions. This is true  because it is impossible for any  newspaper in Canada to discuss all  questions in a free- and honest  manner without being shut out of  the mails. The only editor bold  enough to run a strictly honest  and independent journal in B. C.  had it twice shut out of the mails  through tho. influence that the  church and politicians had over  the automatons who unroll the red  tape in thc postofiice at Ottawa.  The excluding of this journal from  the use.of the mails in the most  tyrannical manner was a direct  ship at the liberty of the press, yet  not a single editor had the nervo  to take his neck out of tho collar  of bondage aud mako a protest  ugainet the outrage. Just as long  as we have such a baud of chicken-  hearted pen-pushers in Canada  will we have a press that is sunk  in servitude to the grafterB in  church, state and society, who  through power, custom aud precedent grind the poor, tho weak and  the ignorant between tho millstones of fear and tyranny.  The Kootenay Bello reigns supremo in many a camp. It is a  cigar that brings delight aud appreciation wherever smoked.  Tho Spokano Interstate Fair  Race Program has just been pub  lished, and will be Hent to any. address on application to Robt. H.  Coagrove, Secretary, Spokane.  From the looks of this program^  the racing at the 8pokane Fair'  this fall will be the best ever. The  Relay Race is" to be piit on again  and $1,500 is to bo given ,for it.  The total amount of purses for the  six days' meet is $15,000.  Wlddowson, Assayer, Nelson, B. C.  No use talking���������this old .world  isn't a bit like a novel. In a novel  when a girl gets sick she gets pale  and "-big-eyed and looks like an  angel in a 'white cashmere loose  thing that might be a wrapper and  might not be. In real life she has  a red nose, swelled eyes, her hair  ���������is out of crimp, she has a red flannel rag around her neck and a  faded.calico dress on,, so that the  turpentiuo and coal oil and goose  grease won't hurt her if they soak  through and if you' kiss her you  can taste quinine "and rhubarb all  day.

When a girl deliberately lets a  yoiing man see her with her hair  in curl papers it's time for him to  transfer his affections.  The Kootenay Cigar Co. of Nelson have in the Royal Seal a cigar  that is known and smoked between  the wheat country and the blue  Pacific.  Eve was content to take one of  Adam's ribs, but her daughters  are not satisfied- until they get a  fellow's pocketbook.  Throughout the Boundary- at  the present moment scores of the  followers of Ike Walton are whipping the streams for trout with  fishing tackle that.they bought  from McRae Bros in Greenwood.  Few firms carry a larger or more  varied slock.  Fully nine-tenths of the so-  called tough luck is due to a combination of poor juegment and  lazilies'*.    At the Turkish Bath house  in Nelson you can get Turkish,  Russian, salt water, medicated,  and tub baths. The Turkish bath  is one of the greatest health-producers in the world.  The fire bells call out more people than the church bells.  Had Improved.  The late T. DeWitt Talmage had  the rare gift of winning at sight  the love and trust of little children. But one instance of this  faculty will not be found among  any of his compiled reminiscences.  Dr. Talmage while in New York  one Sunday was the guest of a fellow clergyman, whose five-year-  old grand-daughter climbed up on  tho distinguished visitor's knee  after dinner.  Desirous of airing her biblical  lore, the child opened the conversation by saying;  God made me, didn't he, Dr.  Talmage?  Yes, dear, replied the divine,  glad to find such infant piety.  God made you too, didn't he?  went on the little one.  Yes, answered Talmage.  The child paused for a moment,  glancing at a mirror that reflected  her own laughing, baby face set in  a halo of golden curls ; then looking up iuto the guest's lined and  rugged face, said :  God's doing better work nowadays than he used to.���������Pittsburg  Times.
