THE ��������� VENEZUELAN COMMISSION.  ��������� The President has announced bis  selection of the following gentlemen to  serve on the Commission Tor ascertaining  the rights of Great Britain in her controversy with Venezuela. They are David  J. Brewer, Eichard IL. Alvey, Andrew D.  "White, Frederic K. Coudert, and Daniel  C. Gillman. All these trentlemeu are  eminent lawyers and most of them have  historical literary attainments. Tbey are  also well known as meu ul llje highest  probity. Cougiess has voted the sum of  8100,000, for the expenses of this Commission. They are chosen from the ranks  of both political parties, but are far above  the_ suspicion of allowing their party  prejudices to influence their decision.  The Escape of u   Notorious   Crlmiiiul���������The  Cu|itnre, Etc.  On- Monday morning Nelson was  startled by tho news thut ".Red" Gallagher, a notorious tough from the other  side, had broken gaol and half murdered  Miles, the gaoler, and was oft'to Spokane  by the morning truin.  By degrees the truth of the story began  to be known. Gallagher had been committed a few days before to several  months imprisonment for stealing. He  was not altogether a stranger in this  country, having been here 12 months ago  whenjhe was ordered out of town. He  was well known to the police and also to  the proprietors of the Tremont Hotel,  who from their previous experiences had  no confidence in his financial honesty and  declined the honor of receiving him under  their roof. The authorities had also received word that he was connected with a  gang ot burglars who were preparing a  descent upon unsuspecting Nelson. Mr.  Gallagher was apparently no slouch at  bis business, and spent no time iu admiring the scenery or in establishing a  reputation for respectability, but proceeded at once to the work iu hand. He  was possibly unaware of the thoughtful  care which led the authorities to puss his  character tin to the guardians of the  iience heie, and* may have trusted too  much to his face. His error was unfortunate. He was caught at once and  hurled into what is meant to represent a  duugeon in Nelsou. The local J. P.'s  hospitably arranged that during his  further stay in the country he should be  at no expense for his keep, and committed him to Kamloops. Pending his  journey to that central position Mr.  Gallagher was requested somewhat urgently to remain in the cottage known as  the local lock-up.  To"a man of active mind, confinement of  tbis nature, combined with the somewhat  indifferent grub with which Mr. Miles  regales his guests, is extremely irksome.  We have, it may be remembered, previously called attention to the poor quality  of this food, which is. so repugnant to  epicures accustomed every day to lordly  dishes of beans aud bacon, that several  of theni have got up and left without as  much as bidding their host adieu. Mr.  Gallagher, however, was somewhat inconvenienced by a little bit of jewelry  which he was constrained to -wear and  which somewhat hampered his freedom  of movement. He, therefore, resorted to  strategy.  THE ESCAPE.  Early on Monday morning Mr. Miles  arose and going to Gallagor's cell  opened the door and bade him go and  get kindling, to light the fire. Mr.  Miles then retired to finish his toilet.  This he had barely commenced when  he heard a shout and cry for help from  Gallagher, who was splitting woodiu  the adjoining room. Hi* shouted that  he had cut his foot and called for assistance. Miles immediately proceeded  to help liim and was stooping down to  examine the supposed wound when  Gallagher .gripped him by the throat  and choked him unt il he was insensible.  He then beat him and hammered him,  covering'his face with bruises and giving him a severe blow or possibly a  kick in the back. Then'he gagged him  and lashed him up in this helpless  state and, still insensible, he threw him  into his own cell and locked him in.  Having thus disposed of the jailor, he  proceeded to go through his apartment.���������The-results j-were-rich-beyond-  even his anticipations. Two revolvers,  a brand new suit of clothes, some certificates of shares iu the Hall Mines and  $200 in cash rewarded his investigations. Loaded with his plunder'he  proceeded up the hill to where the old  N. &F. S. station used to be. The  outgoing train had not yet-corae up  the hill from Five Mile Point. With  that modesty which distinguishes.all  escaping criminals Mr. Gallagher decided not to wait about for. the train  but to walk on. It was possible that  rudely inquisitive' people might be up  there before long.  Meanwhile the unfortunate Miles  gradually came to and with infinite  difficulty managed to free himself of  his gag and his bonds. -But he was  fast locked iu the cell aud there was  no probability whatever of anyone  coining to his assistance, the government in its infinite wisdom considering  one man sufficient to cariy out the  duties of both police officer and gaoler.  Vainly did Miles beat upon the door  and walls of the cell, vainly did he call.  At last however his cries attracted  attention and ho was released. Then  i*- wasthat measures were discussed to  recapture the criminal.  THK   CAPTURE.  Telegrams were immediately sent to  Waneta and the train was . boarded  and examined without result.. During  Lhe day various reports were received  of his being seen at different points  along the line and towards evening a  party under (if the charge of Mr. C. \V.  \V'*si was sent out. on a special train to  ovcrta ke a nd arrest t he runaway " Mr|  West rijrhtly argued that in thepresent  state of the country with several feet  of soft snow on it, it was impossible  for Gallagher to leave the railroad  track and that if he did he would necessarily leave a (rail behind him that  could easily be followed. The party  therefore went light out to Beaver  Meadows a point some 30 miles from  Nelson and beyond the reach of Gallagher on his days march.  On Tuesday the backward march  was commenced, the party having  been reinforced by some men from  Waneta. A patrol was left to guard  the line and the rest of the party  proceeded Nelson-wards. " Every trail  leaving the raihvay track was followed  up and accounted.foi'. The travelling  was very bad. A thaw had set. in and  they sank to rhe knees altuostat every  step in the soft .slush that lay between  the railr. After proceeding in this way  for some three miles they met the  section foreman on a hand car. This  machine -was speedi!v pressed into  service and the hunt continued.  E/ery  shack    along    the   road   \v*s j  thoroughly searched, wood cutters,  camps, trappers' cabins and section  houses all. being treated alike, livery-  where the information was scattered  broadcast/that there was $50 for information leading to the arrest of the  fugitive and a prospect of five years in  gaol for anyone hiding him or aiding  in his escape.  Tuesdays train to Nelson came along  and hy it a despatch was sent to Capt  Fitzstubbs detailing events so far and  holding out hopes of success on the  morrow. Already Mr. West had a  shrewd idea that his man was up the  Hall Creek trail and took precaution's  tc cut him off if he made a break back  iicross country towards the main line.  Further information made suspicion  into a certainty.  The Hall creek trail is much used by  people going up to the Fern and Eureka  claims where work is going on, but it  leads nowhere else. It is at the present  time the only open trail leaving the railway. As soon ns Hall Siding was reached  the party proceeded up the trail leading  to the mines. About a mile up, the trail  forks, the two parts joining again some  distance on. Mr. West and one man  took the right hand trail, Messrs. Maunsell, Joe Campbell, and P. II. Peterson  going to the left. These three soon  observed a cabin standing near the trail.  Campbell and Peterson are both old  trappers, and have all an Indians quickness at reading the signs of the ground.  It took them not a moment to see that  the cabin had been recently entered.  Knocking at the door produced no  answer, lt was fastened on the inside:  In spite of the fact that the man they  were after was desperate and was known  to have arms in his possession, Maunsell  deliberately kicked the door in. There  facing him, grasping a pistol in his right  hand stood the fugitive. Utterly exhausted  with his weary- march, and want of food,  his nerve had deserted him and letting  the pistol fall to the ground he yielded  himself an almost willing prisoner to his  captors.  The party soon reunited, being called  together ' by shots, which somewhat  alarmed the others, ahd with their prisoner" securely ironed they returned to  Nelson about 3 p.m. During the afternoon further precautions were*, taken  against a second escape, a smith  being employed to rivet the fetters,  as it was deemed better to take uo im-  ther chances in the matter. Gallagher  will be kept here awaiting trail. He cau  be tried if he chooses by Judge Spinks  ou his next visit which will not be  probably before April, otherwise he will  have to await the assizes inMay or June.  In his report to Capt. Fitzstubbs Mr.  West lays particular stress on the  willing assistance he received from  the employes of the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard Railway.  THE HALL MINES SMELTER.  Tbe works at the smelter are now  complete and it is possible that the  furnace may be blown in today. Steam  was got up in the boilers on Monday last  and the machinery connected with the  blast tested "and found to work excellently. Fires were lighted in the stack  itself some days ago to thoroughly dry  out the brick work and warm the whole  of it up prior to applying the blast. ���������  The tramway has been working well for  some time and there are now over 2000  tons of ore in the upper bins. The tram  line connecting them with the gravity-  bins just above the mixing floor is ready.  Coke and lime are in their respective  receptacles and the only delay is owing to  the non arrival of certain fluxing ore  from Colville. This is accounted -for by  _the_unusual_!!chinonk'Lwhich commenced,  last Sunday and has kept the thermometer  some 50 degrees above where it ought to  be.  AVater for various uses is brought from  the Electric Light Company's penstock  some quarter of a mile away aud delivered iuto a large tank to the south of  of the works. This holds sufficient for  "some time, the company having arranged  with the electric light people to take water  only during the daytime when it is not  required to drive the electric machinery.  The slag, instead of being drawn ofT  and wheeled uwayjn pots, is shot into a  flume immediately below, the hearth.*' A  continuous stream of water rushes at a  great pace through this flume and granulates tho molten slag as it reoeives it,  carrying it oil and depositing it iu the  canyon below. -This device itself saves a  heavy labor bill. If Nelsou were a largor  place, this slag could be utilised to make  bricks. This is done at Mansfield, in  Germany, the only other place where ore  similar "to that - of the Silver King is  known to exist. The present demand  however is too small to warrant the  expense of putting in the necessary pluut.  The furnace itself has previously beun  described in these columue. It is therefore sufficient to say that it is a water  jacket stack of the latest construction  capable of dealing with about 100 tons of  ore a day.  Au assay office and superintendent's  house in one occupies a commanding  position at the end'of the tramway. Near  the bins just above the smelter itself is  the sampling office fitted with the usual  crushers 'aud other gear, and on'the rising ground to the south stands the  company's boardiug house. -  The works are very, complete and the  slope of the ground has been made use of  to facilitate the handling of the material  in every way.

The smelter at Pilot Bay is reported in  active operation again after being closed  down for a few days.  The Carlton theatrical company gave a  performance in the Fire Hall on Mondaj  last in aid of the funds of the Fire  Company.  AVe call our readers attention to a  change in the conditions under which we  offer prizes for suggestions for improvements iu the Mining Laws.  Mr. AV. B. Gordon who has been manager of the Pilot Bay smelter since it first  started a year ago has resigned his connection with the company.  The Hospital Ball which is to be held  at the Phair Hotel next week is likely to  be a success. The price of ticketshas  been fixed at ������3 including supper.  Dr. Symonds, late of H. M. S. Royal  Arthur, who has been at Donald for a  couple of years, arrived in town last night  and is considering the desirability of  settling here.  Charles L. Arnold has sold his interest  consisting of one sixth in the Lucky Jim  to Mr. E. J. Mathews who represents the  Omaha and Grant smelter. The sale was  negotiated three manths ago the price  beiug 85000. The first payment of 25 per  cent, was made last week. The balance of purchase money is to be paid in  0 and 12 months. Mr. Arnold left for  England on Mouday last.  After being blocked for some days the  Kaslo line was opened for traffic again ou  Thnrsday. The main line of the C. P. lt.  which had been blocked, both east and  west of Revelstoke is also open again.  There was a very heavy slide from Rosa'  Peak which piled over 70 feet of ice and  snow on to the rails, but the appliances-  of the company are so complete that it  was cleared away in a few days.  The great iron chimney stack at the  smelter was lifted into its place yesterday. Just aa it reached the perpendicular, a hook attached to one of the guys  gave way and for a moment it was  thought that the huge stack would come  crashing down. After oscillating  violently however, and scaring the bystanders who were uncertain as to which  way itwonld fall, it gradually settled  down into its right place.  Dr. Arthur, Coroner for AVest Koote  nay held an inquest on Monday last on  the body of a man which was found dead  on the Nakusp and Slocan Railway near  .McGuigan Siding. There-was no mark  of violence and there was every appearance of the unfortunate man having met  his death from exposure. The body was  viewed by at least a couple of hundred  people not one of whom was able to  identify the deceased. He was apparently  a Hungarian Jew. An open verdict was  returned.  NEWS OF THE CAMPS.  CHURCH OE ENGLAND   CHRIST  MAS TREE.  At 5.30 on Tuesday afternoon close up  on 30 children, most of whom are members of the Sunday schools, sat down to  tea in the mission room. The tables well  supplied by parents amd friends,  were m charge of Mesdames Ake-  hurst, Goepel. Fletcher, MaeFarlaud,  Sansom, Stevenson and -Ball, who  were indefatigable in there efforts  to make the youngsters happy. After  tea, various games were played,  and if noise be any criterion, with keen  enjoyment., At 7.30, many parents and  friends having arrived tLe Christmas  tree was lighted np and presented a very  pretty sight.  Mr. Fred Irvine kindly distributed the  presents in which it is hoped that none  of the children were overlooked. The  expenses of the tree were met by a number of generous doners and a balance of  sixteen dollars remains -which will be  devoted to increasing the Sunday school  library. Many thanks are due to all  who helped to provide this pleasant evening for the children.aud particularly to  those ladies and gentlemen'who worked  so hard at the tree and tables.  A COUNTY 00UET JUDGE FOR  KOOTENAY.  We were glad to see i:i the speech  of the Governor General at the opening of the -Dominion Parliament a  reference to the increasing mining  activity of British Columbia.* These  "speeches from the Throne" are not the  spontaneous utterances of- the Royal  or Vice-regal speaker but are prepared  for them by the ministry of the day.  AVe may therefore take it for granted  that-Kootenay is' not unknown in the  Cabinet room. That being the case we  desire agiiin to draw the attention of  the authorities to the necessity of  ippointing a County Court Judge who  shall be resident in Kootenay.  DISSENSIONS IN THE CABINET.  NAKUSP.  [From our own Correspondent.)  P. M. Vingling late partner of C. W.  Vandet'hiirg in the steamer Arrow  went to Arrowhead on. Saturday, to  search for the'- bodies of Vandertmrg  and Walker.  On Thursday last the lake .was  covered with slush after a heavy snow  stoiin of twenty four hours, but fortunately, a wind on Sunday Jmorning  followed by a steady rain completely  dispelled it, there is now no sign of ici  in the lake.  The C. & K. S. N. Cos. ice breaking  scow was launched ou Saturday morn  ing she is shod under the bow, over  galvanized iron sheeting, with railway  iron. She will be driven in front of the  boat aud forced on top of the ice. She  is expected to be sufficiently heavy to  break any ice that may form on the  lake this winter.  "THE MINER" PRIZE COMPETITION.  SOUTH   AFRICAN   AFFAIRS.  The Following*  Prizes  Are Ottered  for the Best Suggestions on the  liuproineiits   of   the   Mining  Laws of British Columbia.

SECOND   PRIZE���������An    order    on    a  Jeweller for  S10 worth of Jewelleiy  In order to remove any chance of  missing valuable suggestions we have  decided to withdraw the rule making  the competition available to our subscribers only and to throw it open to  every one. This, we hope, will prove  the honesty of our endeavor to obtain  such hints as will lead to the betterment of the law.  It is not necessary that, competitors  should go the length of sending in the  draft of a new bill or an amended consolidation of the existing ones. AVe  only ask for "suggestions" for the improvement of the mining acts. '  0       CONDITIONS.  1.

An unsuccessful attempt was made  to .lynch'the murderer-. Short is at  Beauharnois. It will be remembered  that the convict who was-sentenced  to death has been reprieved.  THE VICTORIA   ELECTION.  Serious dissensions have occurred at  Ottawa and it is possible that a general election may be on us before we  suspect it. Messrs. Foster, Haggarr,  Tapper, Montague, Dickey, Ives and  Wood have resigned. These gentlemen  have resigned on the condition that  Sir.Mackeazie Bowell also resigns. The  excuse they offer is that the government is not strong enough to meet the  country.  This state of affairs is .undoubtedly  the- rpsult of serious dissensions in the  Cabinet, produced partly by the'Manitoba school question. There are also  hints flying about accusing Sir Adolph  Caron and Mr. Montague of being open \  to charges of bribery. j  It is expected that Sir Charles Tup-!  per will form a ministry and carry it;  on until the end of the sett-ion.  The bye-election iu Victoria rendered  necessary by Col. Prior's acceptance of  the - position of Controller of Inland  Revenue came off on Monday last and  resulted iu a victory for Col. Prior over  his opponent Mr. Templcman. The figures "as telegraphed are wrong. The  majority is given at 107 and the candidates numbers are given at 15ti-_ nndl*J87  the difi'erenco betweeu these being only  77. Anyhow it is' a bare victory and  nothing more.  SHOOTING AFPEAY.

A heavy rain storm  was succeeded by a windstorm of unpre-  cented severity. ��������� This wan again succeeded by a" heavy fall of wet snow  partially frozen which brought down the  wires of the police alarm, two telephone  systems, and* the C.

In the Spokane papers of  the i)th (Wednesday) theie is a telegram  from London dated January 8 coinmei.-  ciug: "The gravity or Ihe political criKS  is increasing." Further down it says  "The news (from Cape Town) is much  more Bati8factory*,****aiid sets at rest the'  sensational stories cabled to tiie United''  States.". This last sentence lets the whole  thing out. The correspondents who nre  sent to England to supply tbe Stales with  news, know their market and are perfectly aware of the quality of Htuli which,  is acceptable to .their readers. We Ik*:.  lieve the whole of this so called war scare  bas been manufactured by these purveyors of false intelligence. The attempt  to lug the. Emperor of Germany inio'tbe-  controversy is ingenious but is tuking ; i  unfair advantage of the thoughtle, ���������  remarks which that particular ><un -/  man is iu the habit of makin..'- T! :  relations between Great Britain and ti._  Trausvaal -are as follows. Thai counti /  was aunexed by us in 1877. In 1881 tl.a  Boers revolted und gave tbebiinilful.it  British troops which Mr.- Gladstone  thought fit to send ntr.iinst them a regular thrashing and a treaty of peace was  signed with tlie Boers as victors. Under  this treaty, self government wns restored  to the -Trimsvaiil ns far as regards  internal a (lairs, the control of external  affairs beiug reserved to Her Majesty.ns  suzerain. Auother convention w;._  signed in 1884 which is in force today,  by which the, Biitish suzerainty was  much restricted but uot abolished. The. *  treaties were dul> rec:)(_rnized by Gtj--'-  many and she cannot go back ou tiie r.  now. The attempt of the Americ, i  correspondents iu London to set up *  kind of German Monroe doctrine iu South  Africa is ingenious aud amusing but i.  won't work. '  Meanwhile the iuuor'history of Jamie-  sons revolt is still a mystery.. Mr. Cecil  Rhodes and the chartered company aiu  strongly suspected of being really atthe  back of it, but if so their secret is well  kept. The news fr_m the Cape is to the  effect that the Uitlaudeis (English aiid  Americans) have laid dowu their arms  .aid surrendered u_coiJ-litiounl).v to t'l^e'.  President. Iu     addition     President'-  Krnezer has intimated his intention of  handing over Dr. Jamieson and the other  pris.ueis to llie BriUoii authorities.  Otlier reports say that Or. Jamieson  was condemned to be shot last Saturday.  Also tliat th** Boer troverument demands  au indemnity oi, *5_i,500.000 from the  Chartered Company and the banish-  uieijt' of Mr. - Cecil ��������� Rhodes' from Arrie.i.  There are also the usual rumors .of '  activity at the war office in England and  the despatch uf a squadron to thc Ca'pe.  But iu all this there is no solid ground ou  which the banner of war ia likely to be  unfurled.  Saturday, llth.���������Later news is to  the effect that, there is immense indignation in England at the German  Kuipi'-o-'s message lo the President of  ihe Transvaal. The sending of this  message direct is ot'coui'tcadiploinali'  insult to England but scarcely seems  to us a sufficiently grave offence'in  plunge two friendly nations into  war.  Late* last night a rumour reached  Nelson to the effect that war had actually been declared between England,  and Germany and Russia combined.  This if it was true'would brent*: up the  TripleAlliance and,entirely, upset the _  balance of powHr~ih~Euiope. The coin-  plications likely to arise out of such' .-<  state of affairs are endless. For the  present we - had better delay turning  the tools of peace into weapons of wnr!(  until more reliable news comes to  hand. _  Mr. Cecil Rhodes has resigned {he  Premiership of the Cape Colony.  OPENING OP PARLIAMENT.  I About 100 senators "and  members���������   '  one-third of the   membership of tin-  two houses���������were present on the occasion of thu sixth session of the seventh  Parliament of the Dominion.  The Governor-General's speech referred to the material prosperity of  the country, noting particularly the -  advances in the mining '.nterprisc of .  British Columbia. On the matter of  the Manitoba school question, Hi>  Excellency said r  "Immediately after the prorogation-  of Parliament,   my  Government com- -  municated, through the    Lieutenant-^  Governor   of   Manitoba,     with     the  govern men t of that province iu order  to ascertain upon  what lines the local  *  authorities of Manitoba would he pre. "  pared   to    promote   amendments   to  the acts resp"cting education in schools  in that province, and whether any arrangement was possible with the Slan- -''  itoba government which would render  action  by the federal parliament in this  connection  unnecessary.   I regret to say   .  that the advisers of the  lieutenant-governor   have declined  to entertain favor:  ably these suggestions, thereby rendering  it. necessary for my  government' iu pursuance of its declared policy to introduce  legislation in regard to this subject/ .The ,'  papers will be laid before you."  He announced that the Imperial  Authorities had consented to give a large  subsidy towards a fast Atlantic service,'  and that the Secretary of State for the  Colonies would appoint a committee t.>  discuss the, 'Pacific cable scheme. Increased armament for the militia is to be  asked for. The growth of population i:i  the Northwest Territories demands  increased repiesentation. The American  aud Canadian . commissioners on the  Alaska boundary have finished their work  and have agreed on a joint report. * The  Copyright question is touched on. The  revenues of Canada show a gradual and  continuous increase and the promised  eimilibrium'between income and expenditure on consolidated fund account for the  current year bids fair to be realised.

(OopTiif ht, -������������, -y A-uerican Press ___moU-  _ tion.]  (Cr>ntinned from  Last Week.)  ���������with gay silks was pushed buck against  the house wall. There was a couch, too,,  also wicker, heaped with down cushions in fresh linen covers. Another table stood at this head of it aud was piled  with tha latest books and magazines.  Whore the tree shadows wore thickest a  gorgeous hammock swuui;. The occupant of it wa_ tall, well made, lightly  bronzed and thoroughly at ewe.    Ono  arm lay higher than his head, the othor  dropped over the hammock edge, holding a bit of scented grewi stuff betwixt  thumb and finger.  Two people upon the piazza ever and  anon turned fond eyes upon him. Colo-  uel Harper Cross and Lis wifo had nut  yet got their fill of looking at their soldier son, now but two days home on  leave, and for the first time since he was  yazotted lieutenant of cavalry. If the  pair were proud of him���������and that admitted no doubt���������ho was equally proud  pf them and with quite as good reason.  In a day's ride you would not And an  elderly couple better worth looking at.  Though the colonel stood full 6 feet, he  was still lithe and straight and elegantly slender. His wifo was Blender, too,  brown eyed, brown haired, with a tense  'ace thinnish and mobile���������the finest  JJew England type, modified by western  environment. There was a bare hint of  her in her son's eye cud forehead. Otherwhere he was all his fatbor's child���������  the same fine olive skin, dashed with  Ted in the cheek, the same thin lips, red,  and firm, the same velvot dark eyes, and  ink.black hair as fine as flost. silk. In the  father time bad silvered it almost to  whiteness. Except for that, w'th the  baok turned it would have been easy to  mistake tho one for the other.  Though the Harp Cross of Mammy's  memory might have been a graceless  enough cub, he had developed wonderfully under hid wife's refining influence.  She had been to him indeod. a more  than, liberal- education in the finer  things, the subtler sensibilities of life.  It bad been a' precious triumph to him  to bring her there among those who bad  frowned upon hhi youthful aspirations.  He bad had no thought of living among  bis own people, but sho at once declared herself in lovo with all she saw and  begged him to let their homo be in hi.  native state. Of course they would not  stay there all thu time. Her health made  travel imperative Borne part of each  : year. He had instantly fallen in with  -ber way of thinking. She was certainly  better, stronger, since they oame. For  ber sake be wonld have agrted to live  in ft desert.  So they bad pitched their tent and  dwelt in distant comity with those  round about them. Mrs, Cross paid no  visits���������it was understood* .iie had not  Strength for it���������and had few visitors,  except those who came from afar. Yet  ���������11 the world spoke well of the family.  Tbey were neighborly enough if yon  went rigbt ������t them, everybody admit-  "Den / took an 'suade my chile."  ted.   There was always, though, a fine  ���������hade of reserve in the neighborlinew  that checked any sense of familiar friendliness. ���������.-"���������-������������������-  Mammy was possibly the sole exception to the chorus of- praise. Even she  confined her disparaging to Sis' Ma'y  Johnson's trusty ear. Bosides she was a  ��������� chronicler most nobly prejudiced.  Doubtless, had the Crosses no elected, tbe  countryside would, have welcomed them  to seats in its highest place; It is much  to the proof of its exceeding good temper that it in nowise resented their  holding so aloof.  "My son, you look delieiously lazy,"  Mrs. Cross said, smiling aorosa the sunlight at her Boy. As ho watched her it  .came to him that her smile informed  the sunshine. He gave it back to her  and shifted the arm above him as he  answered:  "That is exactly what I am, mater!  At this minute I feel that if a captain's  commission was on the other side of  the lawn I wonld not stir to go after  ���������it" . ���������**,-.'  "Yon out!" Colonel Cross said, pre-  * tending to frown. "I am utterly ashamed  of you! But listen. You must get up.  Someone is coming���������coming in a hurry 1  I wonder who. Why, upon my life, if  it is not John Antony Morris' girl!"  Instantly the three pairs of eyes focused  themselves upon Tony. They saw. a slim,.  pretty girl in a clean pink calico frock,  mounted bareback upon a saucy dun colored mule. At the sight the young fellow started upright He made to go forward, but was checked by his father's  glance as he himself went down the piazza step,  "Howdy do, Miss Morris? Lot me  help you,", ho said, holding out both  bands as though to lift her to earth.  , "No," Tony panted; "I���������I have not  time. Mammy is waiting. We are going  to mill and have a sick mule. I���������I  thought���������maybe, please, will you let me  have one in its place?"  She felt herself blushing furiously.  Indeed betwixt embarrassment and  fortification she was almost beside herself. She had fancied all the way in that  it would be the easiest thing in the  world to speak formally and in business  gunioa to this hzndiluy enemy, prof  fering pay In good set terms for that  which she wished to gain. Now the  fineness of her own breeding made that  out of the question. Before a word had  been spoken she had recognized how utterly impossible it was thus to affront  one bred to a full understanding of the  region's law of good neighborhood.  The shadow of a smile melted Colonel  Cross' rather hard mouth. His alert intelligence had caught the struggle, the  humiliation, in the girl's face. Perhaps,  too, he had a sympathetic comprehension  of the gallantry that forced her thus to  forbear dealing a fine prick to his consequence. "She's all her father's daughter," he said to his memory. Aloud he  spoke over hia shoulder .to his son.  "Take  my horse there, Curtis, and  gallop to the field. Tell two of the plowmen to bring in Miss Morris' wagon.  Be quick, or the rain will catch yon.  It will be a storm, I think."  As the young fellow moved away the  elder man again put out his hand. Tony overlooked it, but slipped to earth.  Her cheeks woro scarlet, her eyes suspi-  eiously dewy, yet she lifted them bravely and held her head high as she stepped within the piazza shade.  Nance, poor creature, was the nnnxe-  liest possible instrument of fate, yet  such in the'' end she turned out to be.  Barely two months after she fainted by  the wayside Colonol Cross, coming home  from town, met his sou riding through  early moonshine at a mighty reckless  pace. The encounter was just beyond  the outer gate. As they came to it Curtis held it open for his father, yet kept  his face studiously averted. Side by  sido the two rode on to the stable yard,  ���������peaking no word. A waiting groom  took their horses. Then as by one impulse they faced about and looked hard  at each other. Still no word passed.  They went oh to a little clear space of  lawn, where the waxing moonbeams  shone dear enough to show all things  plain as day. ���������>  After a long, long look Colonel Cross  said, a curious under vibration in hia  voice:  "Your leave is up next week!"  "Yob, sir, "the young man answered,  folding his arms, the lino of his mouth  hardening until it was a copy of the  father's.  "You have spent a full third of it  dangling after Tony Morris!" the old  man went on.  "I aim glad to say yon are right, sir,"  the son returned.  "No doubt you think yourself, in lovo  with her?"  "I know it," Curtis said.  "H-m! Do you not know also that her  father"���������  "Yes. I know everything, the whole  miserable story!" the-ion burst out, his  bands clinching savagely. "I dare say  you'll disinherit mefor saying it," be  went on. "Perhaps I deserve it anyway  for. loving that man's daughter, but 1  cannot think it was right for you,  knowing all tbat had come and gone,  to live bere among these people, where  all that old coil might come back upon  an innocent head!"  - "Why, what's up? Has the girl re  fnsed yon?" Colonel Cross asked, and  tbe moon rays showed him smiling.  "Yes. She has refused me���������refused  ine in such fashion that I cannot misunderstand it for a pretty maiden ruse. I  begged for tho tiniest hope. I would  wait, do,- ensure anything. Then she  told me, as delicately-as it might be  told, of all that lay between us, of how  impossible it was that yon and my mother should not hate her, and how more  than impossible it was that she should  be willing to sow division between thorn  and their only ohild."  ' 'Conscientious, I must say! We ought  to be very grateful," Colonel Cross said,  drawing a deep -breath. "My lad," he  went on, Jlinging an arm over his son's  shoulder, "IwilFdisinherit^youTif"";you"  are such a faint heart as to let that refusal daunt you. Even if I still felt bitterly toward Antony Morris, poor follow, what other revenge could bo so  complete as to see his daughter my son's  wife! As the case stands I feel that I  owe him a great deal. Bitterly as I suffered at his hands, be taught me that  chivalry is something more than ���������  name���������that itis, in essence, the consideration of the strong for "the Weak or  helpless. Moro than that, he mulo me a  free soil man, and so gave me your mother and my after career. Say, youngster,  are yon ready to assume your father's  debt?"  "Yes, sir!" Curtis said meekly, but  wringing his father's hand. "I think,  though, it will take a lifetime to pay it  properly."  "No doubt of it, and you can't begin  too soon," the colonel said, smiling at  his boy. "You'll have a pretty hard row  to hoe, though Tony is, I think, too  gallant and sensible to be unreasonable.  Mammy is the lion in your path.".  But to tho astonishment of everybody,  most of all heTself, Mammy surrendered  without discretion. Attheinfair, which  made the county open- its eyes, she admitted to Sis' Ma'y Johnson, between  mouthfuls of wedding cake:  "I gut mo' finger 'an mos' anybody  in dis yere wedding pie. Seem lek Tony she des cain't 'greo wid hersolf ter  say yes ner no. Den I took an 'suade  my chile, an 'suade her, dough hit did  go 'ginst de grain. I thunk erbout ole  marster an" Marso John Ant'ny an all  dat; den I thunk erbout Tony, gal horned quality, dribin ole mules ter mill,  wid no much ter ca'y, an singin cawn  ���������ongs on de road. .

Dee tells me, too, when Tony go  wid 'im ter. de president's house, she  gwine come way yander at de head ob  des do common sort. I dunno 'bout dat,  but I does know dee ain't gwine he na-  rybody nowhar wid mo' ter make dee  hole dee haid up 'an my gal's Kut."  A little girl who was trying to tell a  friend how absent-minded her grandfather was, said: "He walks around  thinking about nothing and when he  remembers it he forgets that what he  thought of was something entirely  different from what he wanted to  remember."  Tlit) Writer the Professor Knew Not.  Here is a queer incident and one that  Is absolutely true: Not very long ago.a  professor of English literature in a New  England college asked his students to  tell him -who were their favorite authors, and one of the boys���������one who,  for that matter, had never read much  more than had been prescribed for him  ���������mentioned Philip Gilbert Hamortou  inhislist. "PhilipGilbert Hamcrton?"  the professor repeated. "Who was he?  I never heard of him." The boy said  that he was au Englishman and wrote  on art and some othor things. "Indeed?" said tho professor. "I havo  heard of a Miss Huuierton who writes,  but I never heard of a man of that  name. " Tho boy felt crushed. Could it  be possible that his prescribed great  man had no existence? Thero might have  been little wonder if the professor iiad  condemned Hamcrton as uot worth reading, if one had but littlo time to read,  for his "Intellectual Life" is mostly  twaddle, and when it comes to books  about art lifo is too brief to read anything but Raskin, aud Hamcrtou's  "Chapters on Animals" is left as practically the only one of his books worth  .reading, but really oughtn't a professor  of English literature to have heard of  hiiu?���������Boston Transcript  Rublmteln.  Rubinstein, thc famous pianist, wen',  to confession ono day in the Hasan cathedral in St. Petersburg. After tho  confession ho stepped to the "sacristy  book" to inscribb his name. The officiating priest asked him his name, rank  and profession.  "Rubinstein, artist," camo the answer.  "You are in service at some theater?"  "No."  "You give instruction in some institute?"  "No. I am a musician."  "Then you are employed somewhere?"  "I Jtold you once no."  "Well, how, then, shall I describe  you here?"  The two men looked at each other several moments. Then a "wise thought, "  in bis own estimation, came to the priest.  "What is your father?" he asked, bis  eyes brightening.  "Merchant of the second class."  "Then," cried tho priest, with joy,  "at last we know who you are! We  shall write, therefore, 'Son of a merchant of the second class.' "  This scene gave Rubinstein much food  for thought. It led him to.establish his  conservatory and the musical society in  order to teach the Russian people what  the word musician might mean.���������New  York Tribune.  A Bad Spoil.  A certain congressman, no matter  who he is, except that he is not a western man, was making up a list of towns  in the neighborhood of Philadelphia,  where he was to make some campaign  speeches. After he had it made out to  his satisfaction he handed the list to  his secretary to copy. The secretary,  who is a pretty shrewd politician himself, ran his eye down the column.  "What's the matter with Trenton?"  he asked in 6ome astonishment.  "Nothing," replied the mem ber, somewhat astonished himself.  "Why?"  "You've got it marked N. Q."  "I guess not," protested the member in doubt.  "Well, look at it for yourself," and  tbe secretary handed the list to him,  He looked at it, and there in plain  letters he found, "Trenton, N. O."  Then be laughed confidently, almost  derisively.  "That's all right, my boy," he said,  with commiserating consideration.  "The N. G. yon are thinking about is  not the N.G. I've got there."  "Is that so?"~_aid~thie dazed "secretary.-  "Of course not," laughed the con  gressman. "Mine's Trenton, New Ger-  sey,"and the secretary said, "Oh!"  and let the congressman go on thinking  it was nil right.���������Detroit Free Press.  SIMPSON'CO.

Women  and children are fleeing from Johannesburg on every train. The principle  miues are closing down while the  Americans and English are banding  together for mutual protection. The  worst is however probably over and a  future may be looked forward to in  which the mining industry may be  carried on unhampered by the terrible  burdens placed upon it by the ignorant and greedy Boers.  NOTICE  OF   REMOVAL.  We beg to inform the public that  the offices of The Mixtcr havo been  removed irom Josephine* Street to the  Jowett Building on Victoria Streot.  PUBLIC NEEDS.  Mit. Hume, M. P. P., is adopting the  very commendable' course of visiting  his constituents and culling meetings  in various parts of the district he  represents prior to his departure for  Victoria. Thc object of these meeting is seated to be to diaeuss the appropriations for public works for the coming season, Although this proceeding  partakes somewhat of the nature'of  reckoning without the host or taking  a feathered census before the period of  incubation is passed still ib is to be  hoped that everyone who has any idea  as to the direction in which public  money shonid he spent will turn up.  There are usually plenty of people  who have something to say1 on this  subject and therefore the requirements  of the district, are not likely to be overlooked for lack of being put, forward.  Among the list from Nelson, a  gaol will occur to most people. Unfortunately the halcyon days of empty  cells is passing away and with the increase of population comes the  inevitable increase of "crime. , To certain desperadoes from the other side-  the new towns and camps of the  Kootenay are regarded as a harvest  ripe for the sickle, and if they find that  though lho arm of British law is long  its grip is feeble they are not likely to  feel that respect, for it which could be  wished. Nelson requires a proper gaol'  and a set of gaolers.  Nor is crime the only thing on the  increase. Mining is proverbially a  dangerous pursuit and everyday adds  to the burdens which the hospital has  to bear. The support it has hitherto  received from the public and the government grant have together failed to  make both ends meet.- The donations  of the public are likely to be increased  and- the government may well be  asked to add materially t.o their grant.  Trails in many directions are wanted  Sheep Creek, White Grouse mountain,  Springer Creek and other new camps  of Smith Slnciiii all de.-ire- extensive  --aid;-���������The-S!oean--River-TYail_LeqiiireK_  a good deal ot attention and ought to  get it. The streets of Nelson itself are  in need of considerable .expenditure  even beyond the balance which the  Gold Commissiokkb probably has still  left out of the thousand dollars granted  him last autumn for that particular  purpose.  Il must be borne, in mind that if the  country is going on developing at the  rate it did last year, all sorts of new  requirements, at present undreamed  of, will crop up, so that we must not  'blow' all outgrant at once.  BLIND LEADERS.  Some of the papers across the line,  the Spokesman   Review  among  the  number have somewhat allowed their  zeal  to outrun their discretion in the  matter of Jameson's revolt in South  Africa.   When  the news first arrived,  either   in   total   ignorance  of  South  African affairs or in utter thoughtlessness they  immediately   began the tail  twisting    business   and  have  consequently made themselves the laughing  stock of the world.   Great Britain had  no more to do with it than  the State  of Washington  had.    Whether it was  a spontaneous movement of Jameson's  or n������t it in an undoubted fact that the  American  and British inhabitant* of  the Transvaal are suffering under an  almost unbearable tyranny.   In their  blind infatuation, against Great Britain these papers have set up as their  idol, of all persons in the woild, the  Emperor of Germany, an autocratic  monarh who is only second to the Tsar  of Russia himself in the abuse of his  monarchical power. It is the Emperor  William who imprisons editors  for  criticising his speeches and formally  commits ,to   jail  anyone   who   is  so  thoughtless as to  venture to express  anything but praise concerning a song  which His Majesty condescended  to  compose.   This is the god before whom  the republican editors fall down and  worship. These men talk loudly about  educating public opinion, we can only  commiserate the   unfortunate  public  that    has    to     pnt    up   with   their  education.  .JAMESONS REVOLT.  The news which we hadjust time to  publish in our last edition of the invasion of the Transvaal by Du. Jameson remains as inexplicable as ever.  The episode is over. A short flight  ensued, in .which Jameson's troops gob  the worst ot it and Jameson himself  and several of his officers are prisoners  in the hands of the Boers. But still no  further light has been thrown on the  affair.  The only explanation that can be  conjectured is that Jameson*, knowing  the extreme dissatisfaction that existed  among the Uitlanders, as the British  and'Americans are called, anticipated  a general, rising in his favor as' soon as  he made a warlike demonstration. -It  is perfectly clear that the British  Government was in no' way backing  him and:it is extremely doubtful if the  Chartered Company itself had a hand  in the matter. It is much more probable that Jameson was playing a lone  hand, aided by a band of those adventurers with which South Africa  swarms.  Wh������n there"is great pressure some  thing must give way or an explosion  wili follow. In this case the explosion  happily was a mild one, but it will  probably have  the effect of relieving  fUDICIAL  CHANGES.  The retirement of Hon. Mr.'Justice  Crease from the judicial bench to, the  emblazoned shades of knighthood remove, the last of the British Columbia  judges who was appointed to his position direct from the old country. Sir  Henry has during his long career in  thit^Provinee occupied many important public positions. He began by following his profession as a lawyer in  the old days at Cariboo, and when on  circuit in the newer mining district of  Kootenay it was a "sure thing" that at  one time or another during the sitting  of the court he would bring in some  allusion to his earlier experiences. He  served as Attorney-General during one.  Government and it is an open secret  that he held in his pocket the reversion  of the Chief Justiceship after the death  of the late Sir Matthew* Begbie. A  combination of circumstances, - however, proved too strong for the old  gentleman, but he has at last secured  the honorable recognition of his services which we hope will recompense  him for his failure to secure the higher  position and acb at once as a solace  arid reward during his retirement.  The finger of journalistic prophecy  points to the Hon. D. M. Eberts Q.C.,  M. P. P. at present Attorney General  of British Columbia, as Sir Hbnry'b  successor. It is a recognised hub deci-  ll-dly^hvrritten~rule'that;"anrAttorriey  General has, during his tenure of office  a right to step into any seat that may  become vacant on the bench. No harm  seems ever to have come from this  perquisite. It is not at all times  jumped at, because it is very often a  considerable step down, financially,  from the income of a practicing bai-  rister of sufficient prominence ��������� to  become Attorney General, to the salary  of a judge. Mr. Eberts'appointment  if satisfactory, to himself will be welcome to the Province. He is exceedingly popular wherever he is known  and we trust that we shall often have  the opportunity of welcoming him to  .Nelson not oi>ly in his capacity as  judge but for the cheeriness and good  fellowship .that are inseparable from  him. . -  If Mr. Ebkrts .accepts a judgeship  his seat in the House and his portfolio  of course, both become vacant.   .  and poor alike an equal chance in  winning from the earth the rich  minerals that lie buried there. Every  precaution is taken to prevent rich  companies or individuals from monopolising large areas. These notices  referred to are virtually applications  to set aside the whole- gist of the  mining laws in favor of these two  companies.  It is possible that the promoters of  these bills may have some reason to  offer why these exceptional powers  should be granted to them, but hone  appear in the application. It. will be  remembered that last year a Mr. Law  was given some special and unusual  powers. But then his limits were  expressly defined and ho showed good  reason why these special benefits  should be allowed him. He was prepared, by a series of jborings to try and  discover a prehistoric channel of the  Fraser river now covered by avast bed  of eruptive rock and lying in a totally  differehtdirection to that now followed  by the river. He asked simply to be  protected in any discoveries that he  might make and to be permitted teen joy the use of a large area that  would obtain its value by his labors  and by his labors only.  There appears to be absolutely no  reason in the two cases under discussion why any of the powers asked for  should be conferred and we hardly  think that the House will listen to  them for a moment. The precedent  that will be formed if they are passed  will simply have the effect of closing  the mining fields of British Columbia  to the individual prospector and placing the whole of her rich mineral lands  in the hands of lich corporations." It  will be a case of a Dunsmuir Grant  over again,' covering the whole Province and with no doubt that it does  include the precious metals.  Our Correspondent furthercomplains  of the Bond clause and its operation in  preventing poor men reaping the  result of any discoveries which they  may make on private property. This  is altogether a different question and  one upon which a good deal may be  said on both sides, lt involves that  very fundamental rule to which we  attach so much importance, the rights  of property. We have no room to go  into this question just now.  NOTICE.

C."  which is unfortunately too long for  insertion in full. It is also-written on  both sides of .the paper., which as is  well known 'adds * considerably to the  trouble of printing it."  The letter begins by calling attention  to'-two' notices advertised in the Victoria papers making applications "for  the right to hold by location any number of mineral claims on the same vein  or elsewhere and to' apply for and  obtain mining leases of any area in  extent."  Our Correspondent points out that  no one can object to aquisition by purchase "but I cannot see how a mining  company should or can be granted the  right to record more than one claim on  the same vein or lode or to acquire  PLAINLY NECESSARY.  The escape of the convict Gallagher culminates a series of similar  events which plainly indicate that the  old police station at Nelson is  nob only quite inadequate for the purpose ib was intended to .serve, aud is  still more useless as a jail. In the good  old days it was good enough' as a  "cooler" for an occasional "drunk,"  but with the growth of the country  has come the profei-ional criminal. To  detain these gentry- the latest devices  are necessary. A wooden lock-up with  only the local constable.to look after it  is useless. Suppose' that a riot took  plaee and several arrests-were necessary or that the district happened to  produce half a dozen malefactors all  at once, there is absolutely nowhere  to put them. In looking after one or  two prisoners the constable is using  time which'he might employ elsewhere  with more benefit to the community.  The upshot of this is that it has become necessary to build a proper gaol  at Nelson, with accommodation for  at least twenty inmates and it should  have a-proper-iStaf__of_on_cials.to_look_  after them, so that there should be no  chance of any more escapes.  There have been five escapes in the  last three years. Most of these have  been prisoners confined for some  trifling offence and little expense has  been incurred in attempting to recover them. /They have been allowed  to go. In the case of the man Gallagher, however, it was felt.that if  he got away the prestige of our law  would be weakened,* with possibly  serious results. His .capture was,  therefore, set about in a proper  fashion, and it has cost at least $25-.  Such an expense may be incurred  again any .day and would certainly  be required if half a dozen desperate  characters happened to he confined ab  once,    i -  The nearest gaol at present to which  convicts are sent is - Kamloops and it  costs $G0.to~* convey each prisoner  there.  Unfortunately we may probably  have to look forward, to an ..increase  rather than to a decrease in crime, so  that a building which is uselese now,  gets more and more unserviceable  every day.

Under the title of "The Golden Bin"  our contemporary published recently  **.vha. is probably intf tided to be a comic  fake. It is possible however that some  'people might be deceived by it and so  it is just as well to point out its  -absurdities.  It is the old, old tale of lost treasure  and a circumstantial account of an  expedition that is now being fitted out  . to re-flud it. Tlie locality of the bonanza is clearly laid down, lt is "about  equally distant from the three.points  Sitka, Juneau, and Wrangel, and at  about the centre of a triangle formed  by these places." There is reference  previously to the east side of Mount.  .St, Elias range and the' southern  tributaries of the Yukon; and hints at  Tough country and terrible bunds of  hostile Indians. To reach this remote  and wild spot an expedition will start  .rom Ashcroft. lt will consist of forty  wagons and teams forty teamsters,  sixteen rangers and several others and  Dhey are to plod their weary way from  Ashcroft several hundred miles through  almost unknown country infested  (according to this veracious history) by  the most terrible Indian,, to reach the  spot where the hidden treasure lies.  It is somewhat surprising that all this  trouble should be taken when the spot  to be reached does not lie on the east  of the Mount. St. Elias range and is  not in the little known and almost  inaccessible parts of Alaska. It is  carefully described, as being in the  <-.nti-e of a triangle of which Sitka.  Juneau and .Wrangel _are t he p.iiuis,  Il is therefore cither in Ihe sea i'r c tl  one of the islands that fringe the  ��������� southern part of Al-tska. A common  boat or an Indian canoe is all thnt is  necessary to get there.  The hero of this wonderful lal<* tells  how he escaped from the place after  his lust, visit, his companions having  lieen killed by Indians, lie concealed  $8000 worth of gold about, his person.  This would weigh some 45 pounds (it  was $15 gold according to the yarn)  and with this weight about him l.e  wandered for 11 years about Alaska  and British Columbia arriving at "Jim  Edwards hut 2*3 miles from Bonners  Ferry, Idaho on the 27th. March last."  iWhy did he-not go to Wi angel or  Juneau or Sitka, places quite close to  where he started from and get a  steamer to Victoria,, that would have  cost him about $20. It is too thin. If  this is your first effort John, we will  not be too severe upon you. But if  you want to try your hand at a yarn  with local coloring, get down an atlas  and see that,  however wild and iui-  Jirobable the adventures may be, the  ocal coloring is right.  MUSIC HATERS.  New Hnnipshlre Wolve*.  Tho Boston Transcript recalls the  ���������act that so recently us Nov. 14, 1830,  a large pack of wolves took possession  of a hill near Tamworth, N. H. The  farmers, alarmed by the depredations of  th������ beasts, formed themselves into an  army 600 strong under the command of  an old ofticor, General Quimby. Tlio hill  was surrounded by a cordon of marksmen, who closod in upon it from all  sides, aud a battle royal resulted. Tlie  wolves wero defeated and took to flight,  leaving scores, if not lnindrods, of their  number dead on tho field, and tho town  was saved. There was a grand jollification that night, when tho hard cider run  free, aud it may bo that many persons  living yet can remember tho bringing in  to Tnmworthof tlio bodies of the wolves  and lho joy that followed it, and which  in strict Now England consciences justified the cider.

C  font* There Are With an Averiioa to B������f.  oigny'a Sweet Stralni.  0 No greater mistake can be made than  to imagine that all royal personages are  ������_oe_-arily musical. True, there is a  large number of melomaniacs among  tbem, one of the most conspicuous in-  ���������t������no-s having been the late King Louis  of Bavaria. Bnt, on the other hand,  the*, are not a few who are entirely devoid of auy ear for music and who even  wfelikeit:  Thus Emperor Napoleon ill was exceedingly averse to melody of every kind  and character, while his uncle, the first  enwperor, complained that the sound of  music used to jar on his nerves and to  give him a headache. .  King Humbert of Italy is equally devoid of ear, simply loathes the sound of  instrumental fiusic, and has so little  notion of what is a false and what is a  true note that the most efficacious threat  that be can use when he wishes to induce his wife to stop playing on the piano is tbe declaration that he will commence to sing.  The great Empress Catherine of Rus-  tia used to say that, no matter how she  -Wished to appreciate music, the finest  -harmony and-the most celestial melodies  ���������eunded to her ear as a buzzing noise.  I have more than once discussed with  eminent aurists iii Germany the causes  of this absence of what is known as the  ear for music. They attribute it to one  of two causes���������oither to a cerebral de-  Uoi^noy or to a defect in the drum of the  ear. Strangely enough; one drum will  ���������ometimes be thus affocted and the other not, and tbey cited tbe well known  caso of a famous scientist to whom the  ���������onnd of music was a source of neurotic  trouble and evon downright agony until one day he happened to stop up one  ear with cotton wool, when for tho first  time mosic became to him a source of  pleasure and even delight. ~  A king who objects to music is King  George of Greece, whoso pet avorsion is  the national,, hymn of the country over  , which he reigns. No matter whero tho  nnfortunato man goos, either at home or  abroad, ho is compelled to listen to tho  ���������trains pf this melody, which is invariably struck up in his honor, and I have  been frequently amusod by observing  , tbe look of positivo anguish upon his  face when tho band beg^n its work.���������  Chicago Record. .
