Tlio Chattered Company havo  seen it coming, I urn iold, and tire  inking all Ihe necessary steps to secure life and property, but there is no  knowing when (ho brutes may not  be on us, and what the.\ may not do  if they start with the upper hand!  Now, you see, if 1 were alone I should  have no hesitation in remaining to  seo it out���������but there is Agnes to consider; and, Willi n woman in the question, one nas lo think twice before  one venlui'ps upon such a course."  "That is the y^vy thinj I came over  lo see you about, sir. Serious news  has just reached me, and���������well, to  loll you the truth, wo are In danger  now, this very minute. Jf you will step  over to my odiee, I have a man there  who has seen the enemy within forty  miles of this place, and lie lolls mc  ihey are advancing In our 'direction  even now."  His face, f r an instant, became  deadly pale, i. id I noticed that ho  glanced anxiously at the sitting-room  door.  "Steady, Wrexford, for heaven's  sake," ho said. "Not too loud, or Agnes will hear. We musn't frighten  her before we arc absolutely obliged.  Come to the office and let me see this  man for myself."  Together wo walked over to my  don where Mackinnon aud Andrews  wero awaiting us.  Air. Maybourne nodded to thc former and then .looked searchingly at  the latter.  "I am told that you have seen tho  Matabele under arms to-day," he be  gau, coming straight lo the point, as  was characteristic of him.  "My servants were killed by them,  and my camp was looted about forty  miles from this office," replied Andrews, meeting Mr. Maybourne's  glance without flinching.  "At what number should you estimate them?"  "Roughly speaking, from what I  saw of them from a hill nearly a mile  distant, I should say they wero probably two thousand strong. Thoy were  in full war dress, and from what my  servants had hinted to mo that morning, I gathered that they are led by  one of the king's sons."  "You have no doubt in your mind  '   that they aro coming this way?"  "I don't think there's a shadow of  a doubt about it, sir. They're probably  trying to effect a junction wiih another  irapi, and then they'll be ready to receive any troops that- may come up  against them from the South."  "There's something In that;" said  '.Mr. Maybourno, reflectively. "And  now I am going to ask you Ihe most  important question of all, gentlemen.  That is, what's to be done? If we  abandon this place, the mine and the  buildings will bo wrecked for certain.  At the best we can only reach the  township, where we can certainly go  into laager, but in my opinion we shall  be even worse off there than we are  here. What do you say?"  There could not be any doubt about  the matter in my opinion. In the township we should certainly be able lo  make up a larger force, but our defences could not be made so perfect,  ���������while to abandon the 'mine-was an  act for which none of us were prepared.  "Very well then," continued Mr.  'Maybourne, when he had heard that  we agreed with him, "in that case  the best thing we can do is to form  a laager here, and prepare to hold  out until the troops that I have been  told are on their way up'can rescue  us.' How are we off for arms and am  muni tion; Wrexford?".  "I will show you," I said, and forth:  with led the way-through the oflice  into a smaller room at the back. Here  I pointed to an arm-rack in which  twenty-two Winchester repeating  rilles, a couple of Martini-Henris, and  about thirty cutlasses were arranged.  "How many men .capable'-of firing  a decent shot can we muster?" asked  Mr. Maybourne, when he had overhauled the weapons.  "Nineteen white men, including ourselves, and about half-a-dozen natives."  "And how much ammunition have  we?" -  "I can tell you In a moment," T answered, taking up a book from the  table and consulting It.'"Here it is.  Two thousand cartridges for the repeating rifles, two hundred for the  Martinis, and a thousand for the six  revolvers I have in this drawer."  "A good supply, and I congratulate  you on it. Now let us get to work.  Ring the bell, Mr. Mackinnon, and  call all the hands up lo the house. I'll  talk to them, and when I've'explained  our position, we'll get to work ou thc  laager."  camped, aounticss considering discretion tho boiler part of valour. When,  however, we saw tho stuff of which  they were made this did not trouble  us very much.  As soon as every man had received  his weapons, and had had his post  and his duties pointed out to him.

The former had told his daughter of  our danger, and for this reason I was  prepared to find her, if not terrified, at  least showing some alarm. But to my  amazement 1 discovered her "hard at  work preparing a meal for thc gar-  ilson, just as calmly and quietly as if  nothing out of the common were oc-  curing. She greeted me with a smile,  showed me her puddings boiling on  the (ire, and pointed to a number of  buckets which stood about tho verandah. These wero filled with some  peculiar-looking fluid; and I enquired  what it might be. In answer 1 was  told that was oatmeal and valor.  "If we are to fight," said this  (laughter of war, "you will find it  thirsty work, 1 shall pul these buckets,  with mugs, at convenient places, so  that you may assuage your thirst if  occasion serves."  I noticed also that sho had prepared  a large quantity of lint In case it  should bo required, and had arranged  a number of mattresses In tho verandah. Her courage put fresh heart Into  me, as without doubt It-did Into everyone else who saw her, I I old her that  sho was braver than tlio boldest man  amongst us, and sho thereupon showed that she still had siillicient ot' (ho  woman loft in her to blimh with  pleasure at the compliuionl.  "If the enemy were only forty miles  awivy at midday," said Mr. Maybourno  as We carried tho men's tea out into  tho open to them, "(hoy ought to bo  close at hand now. When we've done  our meal we'll post extra sentries;  for though T do not for a moment expect they'll attack us in the dar, it  would never do to allow ourselves to  be surprised."  I agreed will him; and, accordingly,  as soon as our tea was finished, men  wore placed not only al the four corners of the laager, but at equal distances between them. The remainder  lay down 10 rest wherever they could  make themselves most comfortable. I  found myself about the only exception to tho rule; and, do what I would,  I could not sleep. Having tried for an  hour and a half, and found it still impossible, I- went across to the verandah and sat down in one of the cane  chairs there. I had not been there  manv moments before I was joined  by Agnes, who seated herself beside  me. I reproved her for not resting  after hor labors of tho day.  "I could not sleep" she answered.  "Brave as you call me, I am far too  nervous to "rest. Do you really think  the enemy will attack us in the morn-  in"?"   -  "Not knowing their plans, I cannot  say," I replied, '.'but T must confess it  looks terribly like it."  "In thai case I want you to promise  mo something. Gi'bert."  "What is It?" T asked. "You know  there is nothing I would not do for  you, Agnes. What am I to promise?"  "That if we are overpowered you  will not lot me fall into their hands  alive. You may think me a coward,  but I dread that more than any  thought of death."  "Hush! You must not ta.lk like that.  Have no fear, we will not let you fall  into their hands.- You know there is  not a man upon the ' inine'who -would  not give his life for vou."  She leaned a little forward and  looked into my face. "1 know you  would protect me, would you not?"  "Wait and see. The man who  touches you, Agnes, will have to do  It over my dead body. Do you know  that to-night, for some reason or  other, I feel more superstitious than  I have ever done before. I can't rid  myself of thc thought that. I am near  the one vital crisis of my life."  "What do you mean, Gilbert? You  frighten me."  "I cannot tell you what I mean, for  I don't lcnow myself. I think I'm what  the Scotch call 'fey.'" .  "I have prayed to God fo������- you." she  said. "Ho who has protected us before will do so again. Let us do our  duty and leave the rest to Him."  "Amen lo that." I answered solemnly; and then with a whispered "goodnight" sho got up and went into the  house again.  Hour after hour I sat on in the  verandah, as much unable to sleep as  I had been at tho beginning. At intervals I made a circuit of thc sentries,  and convinced myself that no man was  sleeping at his post, but for the greater part of tho time I sat staring at  the winking stars. Though I searched  the open space outside the laager over  and over again, not a sign of the  enemy could I discover. If they were  there," they must have been keeping  wonderfully quiet. The sighing of the  breeze  in   the long veldt grass was  ow   my  friends were getting on was, however,  nearly my undoing; for if I had been  more intent upon my own concerns,  I should have scea a man wriggling  along on thc ground towards me. Just  however, as ho wi's about to hurl his  assegai 1 caught sight of him, and  brought my rille lo tlie shoulder. Seeing this, he rose to his feat with a  jump, and hurled his spear. I dodged  with tho quickness of lightning, and  heard it strike (lie tyro of tho wheel  behind me. AI Ihe same instant I  covered him am! pulled the trigger.  To my horror the rifle did not go ofi\  I had fired my nine shots, and tho  magazine was empty. But my wits  did not desert mo for long. Before tho  savage' had time to clamber on to tho  wheel and raise his knob-kerrio, I  was within striking distance, and,  swinging my rille by (ho barrel high  into the air, brought tho butt down  upon his head with a crash that might  have been hoard yards away. It  jirtishod iu his skull like an egg-shell,  anil lit- fell like a log and never moved  again.  As he went down a sudden peace  descended  upon the field, and for a  moment or two every man wondered  what hnd happened. The smoke quick,  ly cleared away, and when It did wo  saw (bin. the foe had retired,   1   accordingly clambered back to my old  position,  and  looked  about  mo,   My  throat was liko u lime ki.ln, and my  eyes were dry as dust, But I was not  going to lake any refreshment, though  a bucket stood quite close to me. un:il  I had refilled my rille, This done, I  crossed to thc bucket, fillc-1 the-mug  and drank its contents with a relish  such as T had never known In my lifo  before.  When  I had    handed    it    tq  another man, I turned about and cn.:  delivered to take stock of bur com*  pany. From whoro I stood I could seo  two mon    stretched    out    upon    (ho  ground.

This African Beauty Seals His lyiat?  Up In the Nest.  Tbe peculiarity of tho prison bird, n  feathered beauty of Afrlcn, Is that  he is tbe most tyrannical nnd Jou.ous  of husbands, Imprisoning his matg  throughout her nesting time. Livingstone watched the bird's habits while  In Monpour nnd iu his subsequent ou-  suivanous reierreu 'to~niD_'iii!Si"~iis_-a  prison and the female bird as a slave.  Tbe nest Is built hi the hollow of a  tree through an opening In the bark.  As soon as .It is completed tbe mother  bird enters carefu.ly aud fearfully and  settles down lu K. Then papa v. alls  up the opening, leaving only just s.mee  enough for air and food to pass through,  lie keeps faithful guard nnd brings  food at regular Intervals without fail.  The female thrives under her enforced  retirement. But if the prison bird Is  killed or in auy other way prevented  from fulfilling his duties the mother  and her little ones must die of starvation, for she cannot free herself from  bondage.  Normally the Imprisonment lasts until the chicks are old enough to fly.  Then the male bird destroys the barrier with his beak and liberates Ida  family. "It is charming," writes Livingstone, "to see the joy with u hich  the little prisoners greet the light and  the unknown world."  "At last," he sighed, "we're alone.  I've been hoping for this chance."  "So have I, said she, very frankly.  "Ah I you have guessed, then, that  I wnnted to tell you that I love you."

That It is much more \ itjurious ta  smoke quickly than slowly is the conclusion arrived at by two Austrian  scientists after careful study and experiment  The two professors���������Dr. Lieberninnn  nnd Dr. Davidovics���������������������������tested pieces of  cotton which had been placed in the  mouthpieces of pipes and cigar holders  and found them covered with yellowish brown flecks. These were found  to be of a tarry nature, produced during the process of combustion, and  highly poisonous.  It was found also that two cigars of  tbe same brand and strength often  produced differing degrees of discoloration of the cotton. Further Investigation showed that those differences were  due to the length of time occupied in  smoking. The sumo weight of tobacco  smoked In five minutes produced nearly three times as many yellowish  brown spots as If It were smoked In  fifteen minutes. The professors therefore concluded that a rapid smoker  inhales a much Inrger quantity of  poisonous substance, to the consequent  Injury of his health, than does his  more phlegmatic colleague.���������Pall Mall  Gazette.

' Such has often been the case during the construction of a railway;  that there is no necessity for such  to happen has been proved by actual  experience. The Canada Atlantic  Kail way runs through-what was one  of tlie "most valuable pineries in Canada. Its builder, Mr. John It. Booth,  was himself a lumberman of long experience, and he placed on his contractors restrictions as to burning  brush and setting fires generally, such  that no forest fire of importance occurred in the whole course of tho  building of the railway. In the building of the Terniskaming and Northern  Ontario Railway, too, serious forest  fires have been conspicuous by their  absence, by reason of continual and  watchful patrolling-of thc line; and  this notwithstanding the fact til at the  road runs through some tracts of timber of the greatest value.  During the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway and other  railways, Unfortunately, similar vigilance has not been exercised; and we  find that along that line many serious fires took place. To this, more  than to all other causes, is due the  fact that the whole country from Nip-  igon, Ont., west to within a short distance east of \Vinnipeg lias been  burnt over���������to say nothing of many  tracts .iii ihe Rookies, covered, until  the: railway was built, with one of the  finest forests in the world. ,In ISCf-  there was a solid forest stretching  from Nipigon westward nearly lo  Winnipeg. Partially burnt at tlie  time of the passage of the troops lo  suppress the first Kiel rebellion, railway construction in 1882-84 completed the destruction; though even iii  1884 one could walk a hundred miles  east of Lake Superior through un-  burnt forest..  The building of the Grand Trunk  Pacffie. furnishes the greatest problem  of the present in forest protection.  IBoth in the eastern section -and in  that now being constructed westward  from Edmonton .much danger from  fire must be guarded against. The  authorities of New Brunswick . have  conferred with the Dominion.authorities as to the taking of steps to guard  against the setting of forest fires during thc building of the road in that  province, where some very valuable  tracts of timber are traversed by the  right of way, and arrangements-have  now been made for a patrol of the  lines this summer. Patrol of the G.  I'.P. west of Kdmonton, Alta., has  also been arranged and is .now in  operation.

INDIGESTION  CAN_BE CURED  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Succeed  After Other Remedies Fail.  There are twenty drugs to help your  digestion for a time, but tliere js  only one medicine 'that can positively cure your indigestion for good. To  any one with'indigestion a half dozen  boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  are worth all the purgatives and mixtures in the country. ��������� After all these  things have failed Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills have cured the worst cases -:-f  indigestion by going straight to the  root of the trouble,in the blood.  You can take a purgative to tear  through your bowels and make a  clean sweep of your food, whether it  is digested or not. You can take  stomach bitters to create a *alse appetite���������if, you don't care what happens after you' swallow your meal.  You can drug- your stomach ' with  tablets and syrups to digest your  food for you���������if you don't care how  soon you ruin your system altogether.  You can do all those things���������but  don't call it "curing your indigestion." There is only one way to cure  indigestion, and that is to give your  system so much good, pure, ��������� red  blood that your - stomach nnd liver  will have strength enough to do their  rm'urnl work in a healthy and vigorous .way. That is why Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills cure indigestion���������they actually make new blood. Hero is- (he  proof. Mr, It. McCorkolI, St.'Thomas, Ont./ says:���������"About a year ago  my system became generally wreck-;  ed. My stomach was;always in a state  of nausea. The.sight of any kind cf  food often turned- my stomach and I  would arise from the table without  eating. Doctors adv.fed different medicines which I took without benefit.  Finally I became so run dowii'thnt 1  had to quit work. - For two montli3  I tried to ��������� build myself up with ihe  aid of doctors, butv as time went on  nnd my condition did not improve I  became much discouraged. Then a  friend told me'he thought- Dr. Williams' Pink Pills would help me, and  I began their use. In three weeks'  time I was so improved that I went  back to my work, but I 'continued  using the pills until I had taken  twelve boxes, and now my stomach  is strong, and 'I am ready for a good  meal three times a clay, and life now  really seems worth living."  It is���������, because Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills make new, red blood'that they  cure such common ailments as anaemia, with all its headaches and  backaches, " rheumatism, neuralgia,  St. Vitus' dance, partial paralysis  and the secret ailments from which  women and" young girls suffer 30  much.

Among other things ..e  said:  "It is no more spectacular or theatrical performance which you are going to organize or in which you are  going to lake part. It is a great iis-  torical representation, which will  leave its mark on the time and will  be remembered as one of the groat  things which ���������> were done in Quebec  in this generation.

"But briefly, we shall see as the  strains of the overture die away, a  group of wigwams sot beneath the  trees and a wild Indian dance in progress on the banks. ��������� Jacques Cartier  comes in sight with his crew and  plants in the earth in the midst of  the assembled Indians the, mighty  cross' which bears the golden lilies  and thc arms of France.  "After a scene which will recall as  vividly as history can help us to do  the actual progress of events, he reads  to the crowded savages, grouped -on  the banks of the river, as he did nearly four .hunched years ago, the familiar words of the Holy Gospel of St  John. Then down he goes to the  river to embark on the ship which is  to bring him back to France.  "So the French pioneers and the  Indians pass out of view and we are  transported in our imagination to the  court of France. The same greensward is'under foot and the same sky  is over head, but the strains of music, and groups of gay courtiers show  us that the scene is no longer a little village on cliffs at- the river" side,  but that this is the court of Francois Premier at Fontainebleau.  In great state he rides at the head  of his calvacade, and Cartier,who has  returned from his voyage to the west,  is brought before him and tells him  of his wanderings and presents some  Indians whom he has brought back  with him from the 'New World.  Then they ride on and the scene  changes again. Once more wo are at  the Court of France but here it is the  court assembled at the Louvre and n  throne is set up in the centre and  tapestries unfolded round, while gorgeous halberdiers keep -guard. The  court of Henry IV. has succeeded that  of Francis I.; resplendent in satins  and silks of many colors, the ladies  and gentlemen troop in. A^pavano is  danced before the King, who arrives  in state, and to a young man, Who  stands at the foot of thc throne, is  giveri a commission to set out where  Cartier hnd gone before, and Cham-  plain receives his orders from thc  King. .   .  Then back tho next scene brings us  to tlio little villnge of Studacona, and  Chninplain with his girl wife is ie-  ceived with wonder by the savages.  "Tho years again pass by, nnd  Chninplain and his wifo aro long  since dead. Stadacona has become  Quebec and the populace has increased to over 200. The Governor, Mont-  magny, goes down with his guard  and receives Uie' gentle and Jioly  mother Mario and the ladies from Old  France who have givon up their lives  to bring the name of Christ to the  now country. She teaches the little,  children the Bible stories that were  taught to each of us at our mother's  knoo and tho scene passes on.  "A fort is, being defended by IT  brave young Frenchmen against tlie  hordes of Iroquois, and'the flying arrows, the awful wnr-whoops and iinal  burning of the fort, recall to us some  of the terrors and martyrdoms through  which our forerunners had to pass.

Dr. Mathison, Dentist, will be  in Greenwood for a couple of weeks  the beginning of August.  She Was Sure of It.  A few days ago a rather bashful  young woman went into one of our  si ores carrying three chickens. She  inquired tho price of chickens and  at the same time put them on the  counter. Charley didn't know the  chicken's feet were tied, and asked  if they would lay there. She bib  her handkerchief and said : No,  sir, they are roosters.  Wlddowson, Assayer, Nelson, B. C.

Property owners are requested by  the city authorities to board up  the windows and doors of unoccupied residences and stores. Otherwise they are easy to enter, and  children playing in them are liable  to set them on fire. A practice  which is common is the burning of  rubbish in yards instead of carting  it away to the city garbage grounds.  There is great danger of fires of  this kind being communicated to  buildings. ���������Eossland 'Miner.  If you wish to catch big fish and  plenty of them, get your tackle at  McRae Bros.  Pants, by a Boy.-  Pants were made for men and  not for women. Women were  made for man and not for pants.  When a man pants for a man and  a woman pants for a man���������these,  pants do nob last. Pants are like  molasses, because, thev are thinner  in hot weather. A fat man cannot keep up his pants iu the hot  weather without suspenders, but a  flog can. Men sometimes make  mistakes in pants, and these mistakes are called breeches promise.  There has been - much discussion,  I'ricmrlR,.- as to whether pantss is  plural or singular. Now in my  mind, when a man wears pants,  they are plural, but when he does  not,-it is singular.  The Columbia cigar is a large  and free-smoking cigar.

An engineer from Sunderland  was spending a few days in London with a friend, and after a busy  morning sightseeing the Londoner  chose a large, restaurant for luncheon, thinking it would be a  novel experience for the man from  the North.

"Well," was the reply, '"'A's  keepin' an eye on ma topcoat.  " Oh, don't bother about 'that,"  said the other. "You don't see  me watching mine."

The following from the Baltimore Sun may interest some of  our readers': The fat man is never  a fanatic and is seldom an anarch-  chist. He looks upon the world  with kindly eyes and finds it good  from its governments to its beefsteaks. It feeds him well. It  clothes him well, and though he  feels it hiM crowded a little too  much flesh *on his bones, he can  puff and dear it.
