[Copyrighted,  1900, by Associated Literary  Press, J  TIEN Mr. Bowser came down  to breakfast the other morning Mrs. Bowser at once noticed that lie hud nn old suit  of clothes on, and she queried:  ���������'Didn't you make a mistake In dress-  lug this morning?"  ���������'No mistake, my dear."  "Aren't you going to the ollice?"  "Not today."  "Hut- but what la It? You arc not  going tishing?"  "Mrs. Bowser, spring is here, isn't it-  glorious. longed for spring'"  "Yes."  "Well, springtime Is the season when  folks clean house, do a little palming  und slick up generally. 1 shall do some  painting today. 1 hnve been arranging foi It for a week past."  "1 wish you wouldn't, Mr Bowser,"  Ehe said aftei a moment.

"The man with a largo family and  out ot work will have to hunt a job  somewhere else. 1 not only waut a  day off as a sort of vacation, but If 1  do my own painting I shall know that  It's well done. (Jet a man here aud  ���������what will be do? Mix up whiting aud  kerosene oil and call it paint."  Mrs. Bowser would have continued  the argument, but she knew that it was  useless. There were sure to be things  happening, but she must face them  as best she could. Nothing more wns  said on the subject, and when the  niorulug tneal hud been dispatched  Mr. Bowser began looking around foi  paint pots aud brushes. There was a  row on at once. Nothing-of the kind  could be found.  "When 1 got through with them last  ���������spring 1 put them down cellar In a  corner, and now they are gone." he  Bald. "Mrs. Bowser, is this a dwelling  nouse or a sawmill? Are you tlie  housekeeper or a visitor? Have 1 got  to stay home from business to keep  track of things'?"  "Mr. Bowser." she replied, "last November, when you got tlie coal in, you  hired an Italian to clean out the cellar.  You told him to take all the rubbish  out. tie very likely took the paint  pots."  "And very likely I'll break his neck  If  he ever conies around  here again  A   wife  with  bet   husband's  interests  at  heart  would  have  kept an eye on  him    By John, but I eau see now why  bo  many  men  turn  to drltik  and  become maniacs and murderers!"  Quarrel   With Paint  Man.  The paint store was visited and pots,  brushes  und   paint  secured.     Things  rankled with Mr   Bowser, and he was  looking foi trouble.   He found it when  the paint store man said:  "If you are going to do the work  yourself and haveu't had much experience dou't make the mistake an old  fellow uamed Bowser did last spring  Up ran out ot oil before he had quite  linlshed his palutlng and he used arui-  cu Instead.   Ha. ha. ha!"  "Sir, you are an Infernal llarl" shouted Mr. Bowser as be squared off.  "Why. what do you Uuow about'lti  ."Was It camphor he used?"  "I inn that old feller Bowser, and J  repent that you nre u liar!"  The paint store man attempted to  apologize, but it was no go. Mr Bowser had a few things more to say and  then took his departure Half an hour  ufter reaching boine he wns ready to  begin work on tlie front steps. They  were to receive a fresh coat of the  Biune pea green A painter would  have beguu at the top and worked  down. Mr. Bowser was Mr. Bowser,  ������iud so he begun at the bottom to work  up. lie bud painted one step and one  riser nnd was slowly recovering from  his Indignation under the feeling of a  true artist when Mrs. Bowser appeared  ��������� t the front door und said:  "Mr. Bowser, don't you see that you  hare beguu wrong?"  "Are you  doing  this  Job?"  he do-  mantled.  "No. of course.  But don't ydu seV'--  ������������������ woman,   l   see  nouiuigi    v/nen   .  waut you I'll send for you."  Lie had painted half the steps when  he saw his mistake. He must uovv go  around through tho house and work  hack wnrd In order to work upward,  and he would have to do It on his  knees at that After Dguring for five  minutes and seeing that there wns no  other way he took It Ho was Ave minutes getting around, and when he  opened tho front door It wns to find  himself face to face with a man who  hud left tracks on the freshly painted  drat steps,  "iiixcuso me, but am I speaking to  "No��������� neverl Look at your Infernal  tracks in my fresh paint! Haven't you  got tlie sense of n Jackass?"  "I thought 1 smelled fresh paint, but  was not quite sure of it,   I called to  my"-  "Dou't say itl  Get out!  Begone!"  The man tracked down the steps and  went away. His feelings had been  hurt, and he didn't look back. Mr  Bowser had to go back around to get  to tbe bottom of the steps and repair  damages, and Mrs. Bowser was wise  enough to hide behind a door and remain unseeu. He had looked ail around  before starting through the house, and  nothing was iu sight and yet when he  arrived at the foot of the steps he saw  a woman above him about to ring the  bell.  "Oh���������ah!" she said as she heard him  and turned about "Can you tell me If  a lady named Jimmerson Is stopping  here?"  "Tracks! Tracks!" shouted Mr. Bowser as he pointed an accusing (inger.  "Why. you have been painting!"  "Of course I've been painting!  Haven't you got eyes? Haven't you  got n nose? A wooden Indian would  know that 1 had just painted these  steps."  "I'm so sorry, you know, but If you  had hud a sign of 'Paint' I quite think  1 should have observed it. The lady  I'm looking for is tall and slim and  bas a cast In tho left eye."  "Blast her left eye and her right eye  and both her eyes! Come down nnd go  away!" v  Visited  by  Newfoundland  Dog.  The caller came down, leaving other  tracks, as many tracks ns sbe could,  nnd she went out of the gnte without  even calling Mr. Bowser a rude man  She was too busy wondering If the  lady named Jimmerson was in some  other house near by. At the end ot fifteen minutes Mr. Bowser bad repaired  damages, and then he made bis way  back through the bouse. The steps  were vacant when he reached them  again, but something was coming. He  was brushing away on hands and  knees and head down when an object  passed him and banged against the  front door. It was a big Newfoundland dog. He was a playful dog resid  ing across the street ne had seen  Mr. Bowser nt work nnd en me over to  play with him. He wns cuffed. He  was booted. He was taken by Hip  neck and banged against the railing,  but he did not take life seriously until  ho had been thrown over tbe fence.  There was most of tbe work to be  done over again, and as he labored at  it Mr. Bowser recalled numerous murder cases be bad read and the names  of numerous men that bad been found  dead, nnd had the big tramp coming  slowly dowu the street had the least  idea of what sort of man he was go  ing to tackle he would have sheered  off in a hurry- I" his ignorance mir"  innocence he didn't sheer. Mr Bowser  wns on hands and knees again to use  the brush, headed for Ihe bottom step,  when the tramp opened the gate nnd  walked in and jovially snid:  "Say. old pnrd. I like your industry  There was a time before 1 hurt my  back by trying to hoe five acres of  corn in one day"���������  Mr. Bowser looked up. He also tried  to get up. but in the trying he lost liis  balance and rolled down tbe seven pea  green steps to the sidewalk.  "Aud 1 like your iigility." said the  tramp as he reached a hand to help  him up. "You wouldn't think to look  at me now that ten years ago I wou"-  The reader will never know what he  won. Mr. Bowser was up and nt him  [Ie was thumped, he was chugged, be  was booted, and he was walloped, and  be culled upon heaven to save him  and fled afar. Then the pea green  painter looked for the family as with  which to demolish the steps, and, not  being able to find it he threw his  paint pot Into the street and walked  away. Mrs. Bowser called to him from  an upper window, but be never looked  back, just bunched up his shoulders  and strode on. His appetite for gore  had been whetted, and he was looking  for trouble. M.

Line Into the Peace River Valley Is  Rumored.  Tt is stated on goo*' authority that  nex; year will see the embarking of  the Canadian Pncific upon a scheme  for conquering a now empire for civilization. This will be tlie building of  railway lines far into the Peace River  country, in ordc- to save transportation .facilities to what is declared to  be absolutely the richest portion of  Canada in combined agricultural and  mineral riches.  For some time past it has been  known tliat the company's surveyors  have been at work in this northern  country, mapping out the route, and,  although the company is keeping very  quint as to its intentions, it is now  declared tliat next year will see the  commencement of the new line north  from Edmonton. The work of constructing the huge bridge over the  river to give the C.P.R. entrance from  Ftnithcona to Edmonton, lias hindered the company in its proposed northern extension, but with the completion  of this bridge all the supplies for the  now line can be carried in..  Oilicials of the C.P.K. have just received information that in ' anticipation of the coming railway, a party of  '15 Ontario people have made the long  Irek into the Peace River Valley in  order to stake out land. Most of those  in the party are fanners, but several  Toronto boys were among them, including Donald C. Cranston, Garnet  Triuix, George Flint, and Samuel Sargent. The party started out from Edmonton on May 19 with 18 yoke of  oxen and a year's supplies. Their  objective was Beaver Lodge, Grand  Prairie, a trek of 550 miles by the  summer trail, and it is expected they  liave now arrived there. They have  sent back letters from Shaw's Point,  about half way, saying that they arc  charmed with the district, which is  very beautiful, being quite near the  Rockies. Spring, they declare, is  three or four weeks in advance of  many places in tlie West. Almost  anything that can be grown in Eastern Canada, can be successfully cultivated. Tomatoes ripen in the open,  and small fruits grow in profusion.  Coal is found in great quantity. Settlers are flocking in this year, and it  is predicted thnt as soon as the new  railways are built the district will be  quickly settled.  Scene of the Strike.  Tho Sydney coal-field, which has  been much in the public eye of late  owing to the strike at Glace Bay and  Sydney, occupies thc eastern shore  of Cape. Breton County. Its land  area is estimated at 200 square miles,  and it now forms the rim of an extensive coal deposit extending well out  under the Atlantic. A careful estimate made some time ago puts the  amount of available coal in these  submarine areas at not less than 2,-  000.000,000 tons.  Nearly all the seams lie at easy  angles, .yield little water, and, owing  to the generally fine character of the  roof, they can be mined with cheapness and safotv Sc strongly marked  is the impermeable, nature of the  strata., that at a moderate depth the  submarine workings are perfectly dry.  The coals of this district are bituminous and st2 especially adapted  for gas and coke-mn!:ing and for  steam purposes. The Sydney coal is  largely used in the Maritime provinces for domestic purposes, and  large quantities find their way to the  blasting furnaces of the Dominion  Iron & Steel plant. Official reports  made to the British Admiralty show  that it contain** &>.5 per centum of  carbon, and that it is practically-  equal to Welsh steam coal. Newfoundland sealing steamers prefer  Cape Breton coal to all others owing  to tho rapidity with which it raises  steam.  Some idea of tho enormous amount  of available coal contained in this  district may be gathered from the fact  that, the seams now open contain millions of tons.  An   Italian   Invasion.  Canada, it appears, is to get her  share of Italian immigrants. A new  line of steamers is to be established  between Naples and Montreal. As  Montreal is not exactly a feasible  port in winter, .Portland, Me., will be  used during the frozen months.  ��������� This is the first time that an emigration movement of Italians has been  directed so far north.   The great increase in recent years of  Italian emigration is one of the curiosities of the history of the migrations of peoples. Many Italians, it  is true, ultimately return to their native land, but also many stay in the  land of their adop ion and become part  of its civic and social life; and this  in such numbers that they cannot  but have an effect upon the ultimate  character of the nations with which  they amalgamate. There is _ a certain class of Italian immigration  which is welcome and beneficial to ail  nations. But there is another class  against which all nations cannot bar  their doors too securely. The Italians  are moving upon the western continent in hordes, and now is the time  to separate the sheep from the goats.  Nova Scotia Shipping.  Having lost the distinction of owning more shipping in proportion to  population than any other town on  the continent, through tho advent ol  tlie steel steamer, Yarmouth, N. B..  has decided to build steel steamers to  regain that title and the prosperity  thut was hers before the Nova Scotian  square rigger was practically driven  from the seas. Where once were built  the sailing ships that were to be  found on the Seven Seas, there is now  being constructed the first steel steamer ever built in the Maritime Provinces. Hull, boilers, and engines are  all the product of Yarmouth, and  every Yarmouthian hopes that she is  the forerunner of a fleet that will  make the port ua famous in this era  of steam us it. was in the days of  canvas.

London Valuation Map  Is Twenty by  Thirty Feet In Size.  The Valuation Map of London, Eng.,  which is being compiled by the surveyors of the London County Council,  is undoubtedly the largest in the  world. It wns commenced fifteen  years ago, and embraces the whole  of the area of the Metropolis, from  Stamford Hill on the north to Lower  Streathum on the south, and from  Plumsteiul on the east to Putney on  the v/est.  This vast area is exactly 115 miles  in extent, and the map is to indicate  every house, shop, and piece of property within the boundaries mentioned. Thei owner of nearly every  bit of land lias boon ascertained, and  up to the present over 34,000 separato  estates have been discovered. It* is  expected that another three or four  thousand will be added before the  work is complete.  The gigantic map is made in sections of 25 inches ordnance sheets,  tho whole work requiring 110 sections.  When it is finished and laid out, with  its sections in order, tho map will  be more than ."0 feet wide and 20 feet  from top to bottom.  Tho whole of the work was estimated to cost about ������13,510, but before it  is finished its cost will have increased to at least ������lfi,G50. The. map has  already saved thc Council a sum  equal to ahout three times its cost.  Some curious and little-known fncts  about London's landlords have been  brought to light. Although the 400  acres owned bv thc Duke of Westminster, with its rent-roll of C3.000.000 a  year, is the wealthiest estate in London, it is by no means thc largest.  One estate in South London actually  covers an area of nearly four square  miles, and there are several estates  exceeding two square miles.  Other big landowners in London include Lord Howard de Walden with  292 acres, and an annual rent-roll of  ������2,900,000. The 250 acres of the Duke  of Bedford's estate bring him in a  yearly income of ������2,250,000. Lord  Northampton owns 260 acres worth  ������1,600,000 u year. The Duke of Norfolk is receiving ������1,500,000 for his  Strand estate. Lord Portman's 270  acres return an income of ������1,800,000.  Karl C-idogan'!: 200-11 ere estate is worth  ������1,500,000, while the Ecclesiastical  Commissioners receive ������500,000 in  ground rents from their estate in the  most fashionable part of Kensington.  ���������Tit-Bits.  Wanted Yellow Spots.  The following characteristic story  is told of Sir'Beerbohm Tree. The  famous actor-manager has at times  a very-, dreamy and absent-minded  manner, and is not easily satisfied.  When he was producing "King John"  some years ago, he asked his musical  director for some very-beautiful idyllic  music. The worried director played  what he had composed. "No, no,-"  said Sir Beerbohm; "I want something dreamy, something���������you remember a beautiful picture at the  Louvre, a picture with a green background with yellow spots���������I want  something just like that, you understand." The irate musician, flinging  down his score, said, "Yellow spots  be hanged!" and  resigned his post.  Sir Beerbohm engaged another  musical director, and told him he  wanted something typical of a green  background and yellow spots. "Oh,  yes," replied the new director, knowing his man, "something like this,"  and he picked up the former director's  score and played it through. "That  is beautiful. Ah, the green background and yellow spots! Beautiful,"  said Tree, perfectly satisfied.  He Wanted to Know.  The late Sir Andrew Lusk���������long the  "Father of London City"���������was a most  persistent man. ,The veteran, it is  pointed out, eventually filled the  chair of almost every one of the many  undertakings with which he became,  during his active career, associated.  Also he gave much of his time, and  no little of his substance, to various  religious and philanthropic causes. In  the House of Commons he became a  great friend of the then Mr. Disraeli,  though he was a strong supporter of  Mr. Gladstone. In the House he asked many questions, and "Ape" of Vanity Fair, caricatured him as "I want  to know, you know." Sir Andrew,  who was the son of a farmer in u  small way in Ayrshire, and after starting  business  as  a  ship  chandler at  Greenock, removed to London, prospered exceedingly in the City. It is  thirty-six years since he was Lord  Mayor, and he lived to be nearly  ninety-nine, being at liis decease the  oldest member of the British baronetcy. '  Wouldn't  Intrude.  Lady Duff-Gordon told this story of  an ignorant Yorkshireman who went  to London to sec the British Museum:  Unfortunately, the Yorkshireman  chose a close day for his visit, and  the policeman at the gate, when he  presented himself there, waved him  away.  "But I must come in," said the  Yorkshireman. "I've a ��������� holiday on  purpose."  "No matter," said the guardian.  "This is a close day, and the museum  is shut."  "What? Ain't this public property?"  "Yes," admitted the 'policeman;  "but," he cried, excitedly, "one of  thc mummies died on Tuesday, and  do you begrude us one day to bury  him in?"  "Oh, excuse me," said tho Yorkshireman, in a hushed voice. "In  that case I won't intrude."  Cajoling a God.  A story comes from tho Gonikhpur  district of India to the effect that two  boys went to tlie riverside to invoke  the water-god Mahadeo. They recited "manthras" at some- length, but  Mahadeo did not appear. , Whereupon  the lads contrived to hasten his coming by cutting at each other's throats  with a sword, suggesting thereby to  the recalcitrant that their lives were  in danger. This method of invocation  proving abortive as well, they both  jumped into the river. One was  drowned, but tlie other returned to  his right mind and ran home to tel'  bis story.  meets you half-way���������does  all your work in half the  time and at half the cost of  other soaps.

The Grauum Press is shouting  for a flour mill for that embryonic  city. No doubt a little later the  editor will be clamoring for a  cradle factory.  Nelson is a progressive city and  in a short time will again have the  tram cars whizzing through its  streets, making it easy for those  who would rather ride than walk.  It looks like the coming of a  hard winter in Sweden. Tlie  Swedes should come to Canada  where they are always welcome  and given a chance to build tip the  country.        _^   In small, dull towns many people get into a rut and havo to be  lifted out of it by mental dynamite  before they will j*r loose from the  moss and climb iute the chariot of  progression.  You cannot injure anybody without doing yourself an injury, so be  careful of look, word or deed.  A ciiUKCu was recently blown  down iu Prince Rupert. It could  not have been built upon a rock.  It has just been learned that  King Edward and the Kaiser both  smoke briar pipes when they are  alone.  Some people hitch their wagon  to a star and then sit down near a  beer keg until their horses starve  to death.  Moyie should be a good place  for a sausage factory, for it is reported to have. more dogs than an  Indian village.  Water seems to exist everywhere, for it has been found in  both milk, whiskey and stock in  this glorious province of 13. 0.  It is a thousand years since the  fad of hunting for the ncrth pole  broke out, and it will be another  thousand before we acquire the  Tad.    A preacher in B. C. has climbed  the highest mountain in Canada.  Nothing strange about this forpar-  fons are always telling us to come  up higher.  Tue Chronicle says that a lot of  foreigners who recently came to  Keremeos from Europe had Canada  size 1 up as follows: ''Country no  good.    Tobacco too high."  It would be better for the country if tho owners of idle-crowii-  granted mineral claims had to do  so much work a year upon them  instead of paying taxes.
