GIIEENWOOD,   II.   C.  'Along I bo Kettle river, abo.it  sixty miles-from Gi ecu wood, in  tlie vicinity of the town of Carmi,  there ate vast tracts of mining,  timber ynd agricultiiial land which  has commenced to' attract the eye  of settlpts. Rev. Jean Ferroux,  who lesides not far from Stettler  in Alberta, has*in<the past few  threc'years brought many people  from S.iv'iv in France and settled  tiieui in difi'menc sections of Alberta. Some of them becoming  dissatisfied he'cast about for a  more desir/ible location for them,  and in preference to all locations  he, chose the teiritory adjacent to  the town of Caimi, on the West  iajik-oi tne Ketcre" Tiveiyandlt is  his intention to-colonize the dis-  jrict hetween_Cann] and "Midway  with 300 famillcd. " Last" fall he  bought from the O. P. R. 2,685  acres neat Carmi'and is negotiating  for threo or four thousand more  acres in the tame locality. Father  Ferioux is now making' his headquarters at Carmi. liis nephews  and ''seveial others are with him  and they are getting ready to plant  oats, barley and wheat m order to  have feed for their ttock next  winter. They have aheady brought  in horses, cows ,hogs and poultry,  and have at Midway several tons  of wheat, potatoes and farming  machinery which is being freighted  in as fast as po-sible. Ja<*. C. Dale  has donated to the colony several  lots in Carmi to be used as grounds  for a church, paisonage and hospital. A. E. Voyer, a real estate  man of Edmonton, will come to  the "Boundary in June and open  an office, probably iu Midway,  for the purpose of handling the  properties for Father Ferroux and  placing thc settlers as they arrive  from' Alberta or France. The  colony _\vill also build a sawmill  and commence next winter to cut  ties pofes and lumber. *-  From Westbridge to sixteen  miles beyond Carmi there are about  40,d00 acres o'f land suitable for  fruit raising and fixed farming,  which Ferroux considers the richest valley for that- purpose in  Southern British Cohuibia. The  altitude is less than '{,000 feet and  thc prevailing soil is volcanic ash  ���������ind.bliick sandy loam. The country  under discu>-Mon is about frixty  mile'; fiom Greenwood and about  thirty from Pim'ticton. The warmest valley-in the vicinity of Carmi  is that along Wilkinson creek. Jt  is about nine miles long by three-  quarters of a mile in width and  lies cast to west, permitting* the  warm air from the Okanagan to  blow through it.

Armed  with  a  ticket  to Penlicton   I- took  the  Bulldog  express a fmv days ago and rapidly  rpceded from the peaeelul cnviion-  ments of t,hp Boundary's noted red  metal center.    At  "Eholt,  the flyer  stopped for a few minutes to allow  be-eia.1 paKsongprf, to take tho high  route to Phoeniv.

Tears ago'there  was   a   college   |.������ro  for  training  liars, but the country soon became  overstocked with profe������,������-ors and it  closed down.

For eight years  oro Iiiih boon hauled to tho railway  ISTot far from Grand Forks is a  town called,Gilpin, no doubt after  the chap who rode his cay use into  London during the early days and  astonished the 'natives. Cascade  is a hamlet that I wrote about nine  years ago when Beach Wilcox was  running a newspaper there and  preparing himself for the higher  life at Phoenix. At that time I  said that Cascade had a present  but no future. It now has a sawmill which makes quite a buzz in  the place.  From  Cascade the train  slowly  climbs the grade until the Bulldog  tunnel is passed and then but little  coal is used on the ran. to Robson,  but an eye' is kept on the air by  the alert crew, for if the train once  got beyond control there would be  an epidemic of funerals for a few  days in  this   beauteous   land.    I  often wondered what I would do  in ease I was on a train  that ran  away   in   the  -mountains.    After  considerable serious and scientific  thought I have concluded  that I  would  first get -my  money back  from the conductor and then lecture to the rest' of the passengers  upon  the dangers of a fast life.  After that I would put on  a pair  of wings and sail through the ether  of 'the  universe in search of another point in  which  to make a  new start in life.  Robson is a nica cheerful locality  and as yet   there   is   nothing to  shock the modesty of  any school-  maam    or   enameled    savage   of  modern society, for the Douk<* have  not had time to shed  their clothes  and:srai t for "Nelson  in search of  Jesus.    They generally  do this in  tho   winter   time  when   work   is  slack on their farms. _  At Sproat's  Landing, near './Robson,   I spent a  night'seventeen'"yours ago in the  Waldorf-Astoria  hotel.    The proprietor afterwards' went to the.bad.  He became n Grit and  was sentenced to a government position at  about S300 a month and the overs.  He has never repented and is still  alive.   This hotel was one of the  best-ventilated   that  I have ever  slept in.    The walls in  my room  were punctured by apertures  that  would enable an occupant to  viow  the moving pictures in  the next  room.    I glued my optics to an  aperturo and gazed into tho room  on the right.    It was occupied by  a man with a worried expression on  his frontal landscape.    Ho looked  like a   remittance man  who  had  lost his cigarette, but ho was not  for ho  had  a gold watch in  his  hand,    lie put the watch  under  the tick, which no doubt improved  his bed by having two ticks under  hiirr.-     I   whispered   through   the  aperture asking him what was the  matter.    He, replied that he could  not lock his door and  was afraid  that someone would enter the room  during the night and take his time.  I informed him  that there was no  danger,-  but   if   he   was   worried  about it ho could  hand  the watch  through the aperture  to  me and I  would keep watch  while he slept.  When he discovered that I was an  editor he hove a sigh of relief and  passed the ticker through the wall.  He remarked  that no one would  think of roboing an  editor.    However he was mistaken about that,  because there are several people iu  this country right now who   would  rob a preacher, let alone an editor,  r.hat is provided  tho preacher was  too drunk to  get the drop.     However,  I   will  not  further  digress  After I had, placed  the watch  in  my jewel'case  1  looked  into  the  room on the left side.   The scenery  in that room was grand.    In  the  bed was a Jersey  Lily, while over  a chair was her  lingerie.    Some of  it was bifurcated. The room shone  brightly through  the window and  its silvery gleams flirted  with   the  golden  curls  that listed  with the  wind  as it 'blew across the facial  anatomy of   the sleeping gazelle.  She looked like a rose that had  blown  out of a" Spokane drug store  into the wilds of British Columbia.  Locked iu the arms of Morpheus  she   was snoring   in   a way like  someone   under-the influence   of  onions.    I turned  my  eyes away  and said  my  prayers.    Just  then  the elevator commenced  running  and going into the hall  I saw one  of the guests being put to bed with  his boots on.    His  breath was redolent of Seagram's perfume and  his appearance indicated that'he  had not been to S"*?,&iy school for  several   moons.    Those   were the  good old days iu Koulenay when a  man could go to bed with his boots  on  and  not lose   his position  in  oociotj-.���������   liTuwciilixyn     blue    UOUUTiry  has grown  so  feminine that you  cannot sometimes see the scenery  for Easter hats and in some places  it is extremely infra dig to drink  even cod liver oil out of a bottle.  In the early days everything  went  as it looked, but now it is screened  v- ith the veneer that white-shirted  people   daub over civilization   in  order to   hide the pimples erupted  from a blood fed  upon timidity,  deception   and   toadyism.    When  Nelson was in blossom Drin Dunn,  Angus Mclntyre, Keuo Jack, Porcupine Billy or other lions of society would  waltz into a saloon  and   exclaim,   "All   you sons   of  broncho busters line up  to the bar  aud nominate your poison !" IsToiv-  adaysitis, "My dear friend  will  vou kindly adjourn  to tho buffet  and allow a cooling lemonade to  flow through your facial aperture ?"  Thus the world grows softly nicer.  ���������  Palatial steamers run from Rob-  sou to Arrowhead over a scenic  route so grandly  magnificent that  it   makes   "Down   the   Hudson"  look like a star  trying to  work a  shift for the sun.   The boats in use  at present  are larger and  much  more    elegantly   appoiuted   than  than  they  were when John  Andrew Mara was king of the inland  waters.    The price of meals and  berths remain the same, but with  increafcing years the stock of snake  producers iu the bars has become  more varied.    In the halcyon days  There is a  this week.

John George Melvin, the well-  known watchmaker, formerly of  Greenwood, is in Prince Rupert,  where he fiuds it difficult to pitch  his tent.  Dr. Gordon, formerly of Phoenix,  ,  is in  Europe getting'wiser  upon  matters in his profession.    Upon  his return he will open an office iu  Vancouver.  Mrs. W. S.

When   I  first   went over  this artistic route there was not a  house   between    Revelstoke   and  Robson.    Now the smoke from the  rancher's chimney is seen everywhere and the tall timber is  re-  ceeding before the onward march  of the applo tree.    Another new  feature   I noticed   upon my last  tiip up the lakes'on' the Kootenay:  The polite young English lord in  disguise, who carried my umbrella  to  the' stateroom,  brought me a  bottle of   water,   stating  that   I  might   need   a drink during the  night.

I suifered agonies of apprehension  lest he should noiico my state and  nave his suspicions aroused, but he  was evidently too much engrossed  with his subject to pay any attention  to my appearance. I linen* I must say  something, hut my tongue was cleaving to the roof or my mouth. It was  some moments boforc I found my  ��������� voice, and then I said as innocently as  possible���������  Thoy aro certainly peculiar, aro  thoy not? Have you any theory to account for them?".  This was plainly a question to his  tanto, and it soon became evident that  he had discussed the subject in all its  bearings on several occasions before.  'Do you want to know what I  think?" he began slowly, fixing me  with an eye that he seemod to iniaglno  bored through mo like an augur.  Well, what I think is that the Anarchists are at tho bottom of it all, and  111 toll you why. Look at tho class of  men who were killed. Who was tho  first? A Major-General in the armv,  wasn't he? Who was the second? A  member of the House of Lords. Who  was tho third?"  He looked so searchingly at ma  that I felt myself quailing before his  glance as if he had detected me in my  guilt. Who could tell him better than  I who the last victim was?  "And the third���������well, he was one of  these rich men as fattens on Society  and the workln' man, was he not?"  He pounded his open hand with hi3  list in the true fashion, and his eyes  constantly challenged mo to refute  hi������ state-rants if I were in a position  to do so.   But���������heaven    help    me! '  thankful as I would have be*n to do  it, I was not able to gainsay him. Instead, I sat before him like a criminal  in the dock, conscious of the danger  I was running, yet unable for the life  of me to avert it. Still, however, my  tormentor did not notice mv condition,  but returned to the charge with renewed vigor. What he lackod in argument ho mado up in vehemence. And  for nearly an hour I had to sit and  bear the brunt of both.  ' "Now, I'll ask you a question," ha  said for the twentieth time, after he  had paused to watch the effect of his  klast point. "Who do the Anarchists  mostly go for? Why for what we may  call, for the sake of argument, the  leaders of Society���������generals, peers,  *������������ "j'H'onaires. Those are the people,  therefore thai u,..y want to be.rid of_���������  You think then." I sakl -that the-so  ���������these crimes were trie ���������-ork of a  party instead of an individual?"  He half closed his eyes and'looked  at me with an expression upon his  face that seemed to implore me to  contradict him.  "You know what I think," he said;  then with fine conceit, "If only other  folk had as much savee as we havo,  the fellows who did the work would  have been laid by the heels by this  time. As it is they'll never catch them  ���������no, not till the moon's made oi  cream cheese."  With this avowal of his settled  opinion ho took himself off, and left  me sitting on tho hatch, hoping with  all my heart and soul that, if in this  lay my chance of safety, the world  might long retain Its present opinion.  While I was ruminating on what he  had said, and feeling that I would  give five years of my life to know exactly how matters stood ashore, 1  chanced to look up at the little covered way on the hurricane deck below  the bridge. My heart seemed to stand  still. For the moment I thought I must  be asleep and dreaming, for there,  gazing across the sea, was tho same  woman's f������ce I had seen suspended  in mid-air above my cab on the previous night. Astonishing as it may  seem, there could be no possible doubt  about it���������I recognized the expressive  eyes, the sweet mouth, and the soft,  wavy hair as plainly as if I had known  her all my life long.  Thinking it was still only a creation  of my own fancy, and that in a moment it would fade away as before, I  stared hadr at. it, resolved,   while   I  had  the chance, to  still further impress every feature upon my memory.  But it did not vanish as I expected.  I rubbed my eyes in an endeavor to  find out if I were awake or asleep, but  that made no difference. She still remained. I was quite conviriced by this  time, however, that she was flesh and  blood. But who could she    bo,* and  where had I really seen her face before? For something like five minutes  I watched her, and then for the first  time she looked down at   the    deck  where I sat.    Suddenly   she   caught  sight of me, and almost at the same  instant I saw her give a little start  of astonishmen. Evidently   she   had  also seen me in.some other, place, but  ��������� could no more recall it than myself.  ��������� As soon as she had recovered from  her astonishment she glancod   round  the waste of water again   and   then  moved away. But even when .she had  loft me I could not for the life of me  rid mysolf of my feeling of astonishment. I reviewed my past ll'e In nn  attempt to remember where   T   had  met her, but still   without   puccoss.  While I was wondering,   my   friend  the chief steward camo along the dock  again. I accosted him, and asked !f  he could tell mo tho name of tho lady  with the wavv brown hair   whom   I  could see talking to the captain at  the door of the chart house. Ho looked in tnb direction indicated, and then  said:  "Her name Is Maybourne-���������Miss Agnes Maybourne. Her father is a big  mine owner at the Cape, so I'm told.  Hor mother died about a year ago, J  heard the skipper telling a lady aft  this morning, and It seonis tho poor  young thing felt the loss terribly.  She's been homo for a trip with an  : old undo to try*and cheer hor up a  bit, and now thoy are on their way  back homo again."  "Thank you very much," I said. "I  have been puzzling over-her face for  some time. She's exactly like Someone I've met some time or other, but  where, I can't remember."  On this Introduction tno steward  favored me with a long account of a  cousin of his���������a steward on board an  Atlantic liner���������who, It would appear,  was always being mistaken for other  people; to such a length did this misfortune carry him that ho was once  arrested In Liverpool on suspicion of  being a famous forger who was thoD  at largo. Whether ho was sen fenced  fiOdj**"*"'   "  tarrn  "* ~""-*   "'t'ltJirtA.  onvrrSTnei'-tho mistake was discovered  and he was acquitted, I cannot now  remember; but I have a faint recollection that my friend described it as  a caso that baffled tho ingenuity of  Scotland Yard, and raised more than  one new point of law, which ho, of  course, was alone able to set right  In a satisfactory manner.  Needless to say, Miss Maybourne's  face continued to excite my wonder  and curiosity for thc remainder of the  afternoon;' and when I saw hor the  following morning promenading the  hurricane deck in thc company of a  dignified grey-haired gentleman, with  a clean-shaven, shrewd face, who I  set down to be her uncle, I discovered that my interest had in no way  abated. This wonderment and mystification kept mo company for longer  than I likod, and It was not until wo  wore bidding "good-bye" lo the Channel that I determined to give up brooding over it and think about something  else.  Once Old England was properly behind us, and wo wore out on tho open  ocean, experiencing the beauties of a  true Atlantic swell, and wondering  what our portion was to be in tho  Bay of Biscay, my,old nervousness re-^  turned upon me. This will be scarcely'  a matter for wonder when you reflect  that every day wc were drawing nearer our first port of call, and at Tcner-  lffe I should know whether or not tho  police had discovered the route I had  taken. If they had, I should certainly  be arrested as soon as the vessel  came to anchor, and bo detained in  the Portuguese prison until an officer  should arrive from England to take  charge of me and conduct mo home  for trial. Again and again I pictured  that return', tho mortification of my  relatives, and thc excitement of the  Press; and several times I calmly dell-  berated wilh myself as to whether tho  best courso for mo to pursue would not  be to drop quietly overboard some  dark night, and thus prevent the degradation that would be my portion  if I were taken home and placed upon  my trial. However, had I but known  it, I might have spared myself all this  anxiety, for tho future had something  in store for mo which I had never  taken into consideration, and which  was destined to upset all my calculations in a most unexpected fashion.  How strange a thing is Fate, aud  by what small circumstances are the  currents of our lives diverted! If I  had not had my match-box in my pocket on the occasM^* am about to describe, what a .very different tale I  should have had tn toll. You must boar  with me if I dwell upon it, for it is  tho ono little bit of that portion of my  life  that I  love  to remember. It all  ing in question I was standing smoking against the port bulwarks between  the fore rigging and tho stops leading  to the hurricane dock. What tho exact time was I cannot remember. It  may have been pight, and it might  possibly have boon half-past; one  thing, at any rate, is certain: dinner  was over in the saloon, for some of  the passengers wcro promenading the  hurricane deck. My pipe was very  nearly done, and, having nothing better to do, I was beginning to think of  turning in, when thc second officer  canie out of the alley way and' asked  mo for a match. Ho was a civil young  fellow of two or thrce-and-twenty, and  when'I had furnished him with what  he wanted, we fell into conversation.  In I he course of our yarning he mentioned the name of the ship.' upon  which he had served his apprenticeship. Then, for the first time for many  years, I remembered that I had a  cousin who had also spent some years  aboard her. I mentioned his name,  and to my surprise ho remembered  him perfectly.  "Blakeley," he cried; "Charley  Biakeley, do you mean? Why, I knew  him as well as I knew any man! As  fine a fellow as ever stepped. We  made three voyages to China and back  together. I've got a photograph of him  in my berth now. Come along and see  It."  On this invitation I followed him  from my own part of the vessel, down  the alley way, past the engine-room,  to his quarters, which wore situated  at the end, and looked over the after  spar deck that separated the poop  from the hurricane deck. When I had  seen the picture I stood at tha door  talking to him for some minutes, and  while thus engaged saw two ladies  and a gentleman corno out of thc  saloon and go up the ladder to the  deck above our heads. From where I  stood I could hear their voices distinctly, and could not help envying  them their happiness. How different  was it to my miserable lot!  Suddenly there rang out a woman's  scream, followed by another, and then  a man'fr voice shouting frrntically,  "Help, help! Miss Maybourne has  fallen overboard."  The words were scarcely out of his  mouLli before I had left tho alley way,  crosHud the well, and was climbing  the ladder that led to the poop. A  secoiid or two later I was at the tuff-  ra'l, had thrown off my coat, mounted  the rail, and, catching sight of a figure  struggling among the cream of tho  wake astern, had plunged in after her.  The whole thing, from the time tho  first shriek was uttered until I had  risen to the surface, and was blowing  tho water from my mouth and looking  about me for the girl, could not havo  taken moro than tWenty seconds, and  yet in it I seemed to live a lifetime.  Ahead of mo the great ship towered  up to tha heavens; all around me was  tho black bosom, of the ocean, with  tho stars looking down at it in their  winking grandeur. |  For some moments after I had come i  to the surface I could seo nothing of  tho girl I had jumped overboard to  rescue. Sho seemed to havo quite disappeared. Then, while on the summit  of a wave, I caught a glimpse of hor,  and, putting forth all my strength,  swam towards her. Eternities elapsed  before I reached her. When I did I  camo carefully 'up alongside, and put  my left arm under her shoulders to  sustain hor. She was qulto sensible,  and, strangely enough, not in tho  least frightened.  "Can you swim?" I asked, anxiously, as I bogan to troad water.  "A llttlo, but not vory woll," sho  answered, "I'm afraid-1 urn getting  rather tlrod."  "Lean upon mc," I answered. "Try,  not to be afraid; they will lowor a  boat in a fow moments, and pick us  up."  Sho ciald no more, but fought band  to" neep noi sen anoat. i no woignr upon my aim was almost moio than I  could boar, and I began to fear that '  if tho lescue boat did not soon pick i  us. up they might havo.thoii row for  nothing. Then my ears- caught thc  chirp of oars, and the voice of- the  second officer encouraging his men in  their search for us.  "If you can hold on for another  three or four minutes," I said in gasps  to my companion, '"all will be well."  "I will try," sho answered, bravely;  "but 1 fear I shall not be able to. My  strength is quite gone." ,  Her clothes wore sodden with water,  and added greatly to tlio weight I had  to support. Not once, but half-a-dozen  times, seas, oolrl as ioo, b'-o\-e over  us; and once I was compelled to let  go my hold of licr. When I rose to tho  surface again some seconds elapsed  before I could find her. She had sunk,  and by tho time I had dived and got  my arm round her again she was quite  unconscious. Tlio boat was now about  thirty yards dis'ant from us, and already the men in her had sighted us  and wore pu'linc* with all their  strength to our assistance. In another  minute or so they would be alongside,  but tho question was whether I could  hold out so long. A minute contained  sixty seconds, and each second was  an eternity of waiting.  When they wore near enough to  hoar my voice I called to them with  all my strength to make haste. I saw  the bows of tlio boat come closer and  closer, and could distinctly distinguish  tho hissing of the water under hor  bows.  "If you can hold on for a fow seconds longer," shouted tho officer in  command, "we'll got you aboard."  I hoard the men on tho starboard  side throw iu their oars. 1 saw the  man in tlie bows lean forward to  catch hold of us, and I remember saying, "Lift the lady; I can hold on,"  and then thc boat seemed to fade  away, thc icy cold water rose higher  and higher, and I felt myself sinking  down, down, down, calmly and quietly,  into tho black sea, just fading out  of life as b������nnily a.? a little child falls  ''-sle_ejj  (To bo Continued.)  BURIED WHILE ALIVE.  Startling Statements rVlada at R������cent  Meeting In London.  Several instances of burial before  life was extinct were given at a recent meeting ot the Association for the  Prevention of Premature Burial held  at London.  No loss tl'.an thirteen cases of premature burial, said the secretary in  reading the report, had come to the  notice of tho association during the  last twelve months.  Dr. Brindley James spoke of a case  which happened not more than two  or three weeks ago. A man asked  him to go to see a dead relative be  cause "she looked so beautiful in  the coffin." Dr. James replied that  he should be very glad to do so; but  he would wnnt.a fee. The man war  not prepared to pay this, and went  away.  "Some time afterwards," said   Dr.  Jame.S,   "'iu  ojlltiU   UpOIl   Ilio  ngnin  and  said a very curious thing had happened. Before the coffin lid had been  finally screwed down a perspiration  _aDDeared on tho 'nrphi-nd __Af���������ilia-  corpse, and tlie undertaker had told  him that he had belter not kiss the  body, as he might 'catch some-  Hum*.'"  "The man asked me my opinion,"  continued the doctor, "and I told him  that in my opinion the girl was no!  dead. Tt would bo nn impossibility  ���������for perspiration to appear on the face  of a dead person."  Many more cases have come to the  notice of the association during the  year. A shepherd of Saint Aubin was  believed to be -Kid, and the funeral  was arranged. The coffin had already  been "lowered into the crave when  knocks were heard, and the coffin  was drawn bank and opened. The  shepheril was living, but died a few  hours afterwards.  A girl resident in Spo.*i lane, Brom-  wich, was some years aj-o thought to  be dead. Before the coffin was screwed down tho girl's father vent to  take a final look nt the body. He  thought he saw the girl move just  when the undertaker was putting the  lid nn the coffin, and insisted unon  rinvinf* the lid taken off atrnin. The  girl's bodv was found to bo warm,  and a doctor was sent for. She afterward? recovered, nnn-ied. and had a  family of twelve children.  Then there is the caso of a Dresden  butcher who came to life in a mortuary.

An interesting account of the perfection to which the finger-print system of identification has been brought  at Scotland Yard, was given at the-  North London Police Court recently..  - "I have been engaged in the study  of finger-prints for ten "-years," said  tho police lexport, "and-during. that  time 31,000 identifications have been  effected at Scotland Yard by mentis,  of the system. I have examined hundreds of thousands of impressions, -  and' I have never known two fingertips agree in ridgo characteristics.  "Before a convicted person is discharged from-prison his finger-prints  are taken and sent to the department.  When a man is remanded his fingerprints are taken, and.,if-ho has been  convicted before, his whole - history  can be ascoitained within two or, at  tho most, five minutes of the arrival  of the impressions at Scotland Yard.  "But the classification must be very  complicated," remarked tho magistrate. -"    ,  "No," the inspector replied. "The  classification has been invented by  Sir Edward Henry, the commissioner,  and is beautifully simple.".  "I   think   vou  have   over  1,000,00,0  impressions,     said the solicitor who*  - represented the police.  "We have 120,000 sets with ten impressions in each set," stated Inspector Collins. "Wc depend on tho  ridges, and ignore the names."  "And you never' find two alike,"  said the solicitor. "It is not like  handwriting."  "It is much more sure than the  handwriting test," tho inspector  answered.  The 'case" which gave rise to the  statement was a striking proof of the  value of the system.  After a theft of silver' cups at the  premises of. the Eton Mission, at  Hackney Wick, Clarence Clark was  arrested on the evidence of fingerprints alone. He "maintained complete reticence, and there was nothing else to connect him" with the  robbery.  When -photographs of finger-prints  left on a glass globe by the thief were  produced in court,tho magistrate went  ' down to the dock and compared them '  with Clark's fingers. He pointed out  that there was a scar on���������>the thumb  impression nnd a similar scar on the  man's thumb.

A TRAGIC EXPERIMENT  How  His  a Husband Tried to .Cure  Wife's Fear of Pythons.  Concerning pythons, the following is  a true story: A young lady in England  for a long time resisted her lover's entreaties to go out to India with blm as"  his wife. She bad a horror of t.o wild  animals she believed she might encounter there, especially serpents. At  length, however, after be lind Issued a  sort of ultimatum, she consented to accompany him.

Living in the slums of Cardiff is  an accomplished young woman of  good birth who is heiress to $85,000,  but prefers to live with associates of  the lowest social. order .rather than  touch a penny of the money.  The girl was once regarded as beautiful and accomplished, and moved in  society at Bath. She speaks French,  and is an excellent pianist. She is  the daughter of a retired Government  official, and her story is tliat she left  home after hor mother's death, and  became governess in a doctor's house  in. tho-Weston".England.-  8hu alleges  that while there she suffered some  bitter wrong and fled to Cardiff. For  some months she was a patient at the  Cardiff Infirmary and workhouse infirmary.  Her relatives sought her in almost  every part of the country, and it was  a mere chance that they came to know  she was leading an irregular life in  Cardiff. This discovery determined  them to spare no effort to induce her  to return tox hor former sphere.  The girl was recently informed that  her mother had left her a fortune.  Thc will is so drawn up that she must  fulfill certain conditions before she  can enjoy any of its benefits. These  conditions the girl's guardians insist  upon, but the girl resolutely declines  to fall in with the wishes of her guardians or friends. She seems to he  actuated by a desire to take revenge  for wrongs which she alleges were  done to her years ago.  She has been waited upon in the  hovels she is known to frequent, and  money and clothes have been offered  her to once again take her place in  society. Her answer has always been  the same: "I have been driven to  this by those whom I regarded as  friends. If they suffer because I live  as I do, then that affords me some  satisfaction."  "But in punishing your friends,"  pleaded a gentleman who recently  sought to influence the girl to return  home, "you are punishing yourself  more." "Am I?" she laughed; *"p'er-  I haps. But I am used to it, and, be-  sidss, I am having my revenge. I  don't want their money or their  clothes." .

Ground water occurs under certain  definite conditions, and as -in humid  regions a stream may be predicted  wherever a valley is known, so one  familiar with rocks and ground water  conditions may predict places where  ground water can be found. No appliance either electrical or mechanical has yet been' successfully used  for detecting water* in places where  plain common sense or mere guessing  would not have shown its presence  just as well. The only advantage of  employing a "water witch," as the  operator of the .divining rod is sometimes called, is that skilled services  arc obtained, most men so-employed  being keener and better observers of  the occurrence and movements of  ground water than the average person.  ���������Scientific^American.

The two had been down stairs to  wash their hands, and by some mischance had changed coats. They  went into the House together. One  of them, putting his hand into his  coat pocket, pulled out an old brier  pipe of very strong flavor. It was  not his." He looked at the coat, also  that of his neighbor, and, 'turning to  his friend said:  "Excuse me, but I think you have  put on my coat."  "I bog your pardon; I have done  nothing of the kind."  "I think," replied the other Parliamentarian, "this is your pipe; and  'f you put your hand into the right  hand pocket you are wearing you will  (ind a cigar case." ,  "Dear me!" was the reply, "you  certainly are right. What shall we  do?"  "We.cannot change in the House,"  "observed thc first member. 'Let us  go into the division "lobby."  Here is where tho policeman came  in'.

Superstitious members of the  ciew naturally attribute her ill-luck  to the tact that on the way down she  earned two dead men and a maniac.  One of the bodies was that of Grieve  Macrone, the G.T.R. engineer. The  other was the body of a lawless brawler, who "drew" too slow. The deceased brawler was Norman L. Smith,  who was a soit, of business partner  and "chum" of a man named Reed,  who, like Smith, was seeking for experience in the north. Up to about a  year ago the pair pulled very well to-  -gctlier, and the end of the drift over  the hinterland found them on a little  place outside Juneau, Alaska.

Full confession that he was the  author of the Court House robbery,  for which Hobeika, a Syrian court  interpreter, is now doing time, was  contained in a statement of George  Pigeon at the St. Vincent de Paul  Penitentiary.  He said: "The robbery was -not, as  is generally supposed, committed on  Saturday; it was'.done on Monday  ��������� ��������� o -'.ween 8 and 9 o'clock, and  I was the man who did it. The employes had not arrived at the Court  House, and with false keys which I  had in my possession I easily gained  entrance to the Crown and Peace  office. On" taking hold of the handle  of the safe I was somewhat surprised  to discover that the door, was not  locked. I quickly^, secured all the  money" I could lay my hands upon,  and also a few papers, and cleared  out' without any person seeing me.  On reaching my house I found that in  all I had secured $1,800 in bills, and  the other papers, which were of no  use to-me, I burned." -  When asked,. "Are you" aware that  if your admission is believed by a  jury you are liable to receive a sentence of fourteen years' penal servitude?" Pigeon in a cool manner indicated' that he was quite cognizant  of that fact, but reiterated that he  had committed the robbery, and did  not desire another man to suffer for  it in his stead. "This confession of  mine," he remarked, "is about the  only good thing! have done in all  my life."  1 ne rnier Trackers.

Prof. Thos. Shaw Explains How Flax  May Be Grown Without Injury to the Soil.  Pi of. Thomas Shaw of thc University of Minnesota, who was forrneily a  professor in the Ontario Agricultural  College at Guclph, is of the opinion  that theie is no moie piolitable crop  for the farmers    of    the    Noithwcst  than flax-seed    He says:  "The idea prevails that flax is hard  on land, viewed fiom the standpoint  of the lemoval of plant food fiom ihe  soil. . Essentially it is not moie so  than wheat. That wheat among cereals is relatively haid on land furnishes no leason why itf should not  be giown where the conditions aie  favorable, but it does furnish a reason why it should be giown in such  1 i\ay that the feitility of the land  may still be maintained, and the same  line of leasomng will apply to flax.  When flax is giown in a judicious  lotation, it fits as natuially into the  same as any other crop.  The Proper Rotation  "Thc question now arises, what is  the lotation in winch flax should be  gio^n? A blue reflection will answer  ibis question. . When land is first  bioken, and "when at the same time  \ pioper seed bed is prepared, it  'urnishes the best ciops. Why? Foi  thiee leasons. First, it is well supplied with LiiO elements of plant  ziowth; second, it is well stocked  with humus, that is, vegetable riiat-  .er 111 a state' of decay; and thiid, it  s lelatively clean. The decaying vegetable matter in the soil adds to the  available feitility fiom other sources,  and it also furnishes moistuie to the  plants. Thc lelatively clean condi-  lion_of_the .soil is very favorable to  tho growth of tlie flax crop, as it is  lot well fitted to cope with a vigoi-  ous giowth of noxious weeds. The  influence of the flax ciop is also help-  iuI to the quick reduction of the  piaine sod, owing to the peculiar nature of the fibious growth of the roots  These, penetrating every part, reduce  the soil to a disintegrated pulverulent  mass, which is greatly favorable to  the grow'h of the succeeding grain  crop other than flax.  Sod Land for Flax  "It lias also been noticed that good  3rops of flax follow the breaking up  of a sod field.   Why?   For the same  reasons that good  crops  of flax  are  ������������������rown on new breaking.    The yields  from crops grown on    common    sod  land broken up are usually not quite  'O good as on new breaking, because  the elements of fertility are not usually present to the same extent.    But,  should  farmyard   manure   be   spread  on the sod land the previous year,  the  leachings  from  tlie  same  would  50 stimulate the growth of grass roots  ;hat these in decay    would produce  die best crops of flax that it would  be possible to grow.   It may happen  ���������ometimej,   however,  that  in   certain  other seasons  the  best    crops    may  .lot come from sod land.    However,  the more sod land which the Northwest can furnish, the more will be the  area of highest adaptation for growing the crop.    The  more    grass    to  furnish pasture, the greater the number of the live stock kept, and the  greater the number of these the greater will be the supplies of manure to  spread on the sod land on which flax  is to be grown.      The   close   interdependence between much live stock  and much,flax in the future is thus  apparent.  A Good Crop to Follow Wheat  "No crop north of the corn belt proper can follow wheat so well as flax, j  Fiddler Quit Job, Duke Sued.

Priceless  Snake   Venom.  The venom of snakes has been found  useful in medicine, and has a valued  place in several dcpaitments of the  mechanical arts and sciences. There  is a constant call for it among naturalists and experimenters generally,  and when it becomes known that it  can be bought in the open market additional uses for it will certainly be  discovered. The value placed on some  small quantities lately exported fiom  New South Wales was so high that  the collecting of snake venom has already become a lecognized industry.  Snake venom, valued by weight,  fetches more per ounce than any of  the precious metals. At the piesent  time the market price in England is  from 20 to 25 shillings a giain, which  reaches "the seemingly fabulous sum  of ������G,000 per pound troy; or, to use  American values, $30,000 for a single__  pound of thc venom. This seems al-"  most incredible, but the report is based un prices tliat have already been  paid. And even these huge figures  fail to bring to the market a quantity  sufficient to meet the demand.  The difficulties and dangers connected with the collection of the venom largely account for this. - The  snake whose venom is wanted for the  market must be captured alive. This  is usually clone with the hand alone,  and the fingers must grip tightly and  hold firmly till the reptile is deposited  in a bag or box.  Some operators extract the poison  by cutting out the poison bag in its  entirety. They cut into the snake's  head, and, having detached the  glands, fasten, the valves and store  them away in bottles. Others goad the  snake to bite through india-rubber  bands and eject its venom on a glass  ���������plate beneath.' Either process may  secure the venom; but in the latter  case care must be taken to prevent  the .intrusion of impurities. A venomous snake has.two poison-fangs in  the upper jaw, and when goaded by  the operator it pierces the india-rubber band and pours on the glass beneath two streams of poison, just as  if it had penetrated the human skin  and ejected the venom into a human  body. The venom is afterward scraped off the glass, placed in hermetically sealed tubes, and becomes forthwith a marketable product. The operator's work, as can be seen, is in  some respects more dangerous than  that of the capture*;.  Tlie price per pound for venom al^ ���������  most takes away the breath, but such .-  a quantity as a pound is difficult to  collect. A robust snake of the most  deadly class, treated with the greatest care, will not discharge more than  a grain at a bite, and it is said that  all so far collect nd in Australia falls  considerably under a pound. It will  be  seen  from  this  that the  world's  much injured by noxious weeds  Moreover, it has also been noticed  that usually it is not wise to grow  two crops of flax in succession or  even without an interval of a few  years between tlie crops. This is owing to some substances left in the  ground by the flax roots detrimental  to thc growth of tlax that follows on  the same land. How many years  should elapse between tho crops will  depend on such conditions as the  newness and strength of the land.  Usually, however, a wise rotation  would call for an interval of four or  five years between the crops. This  does not mean, however, tliat in some  instances good crops of Itax'cannot  bo grown in closo succession. The  increasing prevalence of flax will  also accentuate thc wisdom of growing flax crops in a judicious rotation.  It is thus apparent that the aim  shodld be to grow flax not moro frequently than four to five or even more  than five years on the same land,  and to grow it as far as possible first  on now breaking, second on overturned sod, and third on overturned  sod previously manured."

A -1 by (5 shaft in the clear  is being .sunk at an angle of -15  degrees, all in ore that goes ������.'500  to the ton or better. There is a  high.grade IK-inch streak on the  foot wall that assays away up In  the thousands. This ledge crops  out for 2.000 feet. The shaft is  guarded day and night. Sacking  | ore on the surface and not one  I sack that goes less than S1,0!*0 to  i the 100 pounds. Quite a mini bur  of leasers are working. The country is located for twenty miles  in every direction. It is a porphyry country. Everything carried more or less value. There are  three townsites. Midas being the  largest and best. Building is progressing as fast as lumber can be  had. Carpenters get $1 an hour.  There is plenty of tlio* best water  for all purposes. The climate is  line. The altitude ia G,.*5-10 feet.  Saloons and gambling houses by  tlie score. Money seems to be  plentiful. The streets aro crowded  with big IG-mule teams, automobiles, burros, gurnblers, miners,  ladies and dogs. The population'  is increasing at the rate of 100 per  day. Lodging $1.50 to 82,50 for  a cot in a tent. The; towels are  aboutfc as thick as two sheet.-) of  tho Butte Miner. One of tho signs  bore roads : " Lodging for Ladies  Only." This 'is on a, big.tent arid  the inside is fenced off' like box  stalls in a livery'barn to keep the  women from kicking each other.  Rough lumber is 870 per thousand.  Freight of all kinds from the railroad, 45 miles distant, is 820 per  ton,  The promoters are all here. A  Cupo Nome liar and a Goldfield  booster compare notes and say:  "Gold Circle is going to bo tho  greatest, on earth.''. "Everything  looks'good for a boom. One'ilraw-  biicW is thai the prospectors.who  own the claims want too much for  them and they don't want to lease  for any .length of time.  There are hundreds of .hungry  men here and nothing for them lo  do. Tho'miners struck for $5  straight and SO for shaft' work but  lost, a compromise being made for  $4.00 for'all work except, sinking  and that is ^"i per clay.

Great piles of  niereliaiidi:-n, suit cases, blankets,  etc., are to be seen on Main street,  where, they are dumped from  freight, wngims. No one takes anything that does not belong lo him.
