Array i-r  VOL 2.      NO. 48.  SftNDON, B. C, SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  I 111 II.  A Great  Property With A Wonderful Showing.  -   In the crescent hillside, south of the  city,  and midway down   the slope are  situated the Ruth and the Star mines,  which have already a world-wide rcp-  ,  utatiou   because   of   their shipments  and dividends to the owners, pushing  jointly ,weil  on to the million  mark.  Above these,in a westerly direction.are  situated tho Ivanhoe mines  owned by  the   Minnesota Silver Go., with   P. J.  '' Hickey, one of the company, resident  . manager, which,   from present indications, are shortly to become one of tho  crowning features  o   the  silvery  Slo-  can's   unriValled   celebrity.     To   the  present   the   property    can' only   be  reached   by a  tortuous  rawhide  trail  branching from tho further end of the  Ruth wagon road, and some two and a  hall miles beyond.   The first object to  catch   the eye on\thc property,  is, an  excellent   boarding   and  bunk   house  made out of large timber* nicely hewn  and finished in real rustic fashion.   It  has a  capacity lor some 50 or 60 men,  with all  modern conveniences, including ii   bath room   with  hot and   cold  water  supply,   which "must  prove   a  great, convenience t.o the. employed.   It  is located in  a beautilul cedar grove,  ami is at once cheerfully and   healthfully situated and  free from  dangers  from slides  in every form.    From the  supplies  of provisions   visible   iu  all  corners,   it is evident that the inner  man of all the workmen  is well oared  for.  The property consists, we understand, of some 11 claims all of which  wero bought, at round prices, from'tho  orgtnal locators, principal nmong  whom was one Wills who located the  Ivanhoe and  Ifllain claims.

As we have indicated, so far No. 4  tunnel is the principal base of operations. A cross-cut of a few feet on one  side of this strikes a parallel vein of  some three foot in thickness, where  struck' containing a valuable grade of  silver-lead ore also. On No. 4 tunnel  a shaft is being sunk on the. lend, now  about 137 feet, a gasoline hoist being  employed.' This will bo extended  about as far again on the lead also,  where a cross-cut will be run tothesur  face, and will constitute tunnel No. 5.  As we intimated at the outset, there  aro sevi ral thousands of tons of ore on  the dump awaiting the'eonstruction of  the tram and concentrator the coming  summer���������enough to keep the niiil  going for a long time. As no attempt  has been nude at mining, on account  of the tram and concern rator being in  anticipation, the accumulation of ore  on the dump is the outcome of development merely.' Shipping also has  been very light, simply utilizing the  return oi the rawhides going up with  necessary supplies, only about 5U0 tuns  being brought down altogether, and  that realizing at our computation above  100 (iZ silver ,md 70 per cent. lead.  The walls wlunever reached appear  firm and well defined, the timbering  employed being principally required  to prevent the ore from falling, on  which sloping will be commenced  when the proposed mill will be under  way.  Of course no one can see tho output  of a mine only as operations proceed,  out no in" the indications presented to  the most thoughtful observers is it is  quite evident that once tho mill is in  operation and mining is commenced  this will rank os one of the largest  shippers in the country, and prove  itselt one of the most valuable of the  Slocan's many very valuable properties.

No doubt from the lie of the  country and the stroke of tlie leads,  the Wakefield and otner Slocan Lake  properties are tho southern extensions,  the Until and the Star the northerly  extensions and, most probably, the  Last Chance, tho Noble Five, the lleco,  the Payne, etc., across the gulch from  the city, further extensions shifted  perhaps in ages through the operations  of nature. The property is often called | ���������Nelson Tribune  the Ivanhoe because that was one of  worked  of   the  Tlie feeling in New Denver and  vicinity is   in  the main opposed  to the  adoption - of the now eight-hour law,  the men themselves b������ing in favor of  the old standard. The mine owners  operating from there will close down  their properties rather than pay full  rates for the shorter day. It is pointed  out that witli no ore being shipped and  few supplies coming in, the Canadian  Pacific Railway will be the principal  sufferer. In any event, should the law  not be repealed, the Slocan wHl r ccive  a set-back that it will take ifyears- to  get over. Already capital is becoming  alnrmed, to the detriment of the camp.  the iirst located and worked of  group, though the Elgin has been  more developed of later days by the  company. The other claims in the  group are the Bendigo, Morning, Tom  Bowling, Transit, Big Kanawha, Great  Easter, Admiral Nelson', Kitchener and  the Valarie.0 Ore has been found under development on the Ivanhoe, Great  Eastern; Elgin, Tom Bowling, Big Kanawha and the Kitchen, the Ivanhoe  and the Elgin, however, being principally worked and the last named mostly jr'i latbr days.  AoHhis season of the year, when the  ground is covered with five or six feet  o.'snbw, the first thing  to indicate to  the visitor that there is a mine in the  neighborhood;' from the camp, is  the  huge pile of rock and ore at the mouth  of the 565-foot cross-cut tunnel driven  in a south-easterly direction to tap the  lead on what is now called No. 4, or  lower tunnel,    Higher up   there are  shorter   cross-cuts driven for   experiment;  but this is the main entrance  to all the workings on the Ivanhoe and  Elgin,claims.     With that length   of  cross-cut the vein is struck, and No. 4  tunnnel, a drift on the vein both ways,  follows, reaching some 1,300   feet in  length. Thoughout the entire property  the ore is concentrating, with clean ore  running some 100 oz. in silver and 70  per cent. lend.   As in all other mines,  the lead   principally drifted   on now  |i .varies in  thickness.   It often reaches.  |f over 20 feet; and may average 12 leet  \ throughout as far as work  has gone.  In many places the overhanging wall  has been found ;  but as no attempt at  stoping has  been made from   first to  last, the foot-wall has been rarely seen,  and as a consequence the width of the  seam is for the most part undetermined.   Somewhere near the centre of  the present: length of No. 4 tunnel an  upraise, with an ore chute along side,  If of 100 feet is met.   This lands one on1  No. 3 tunnel, consisting of a 400-foot  drift but stops short   of the surface,  and may never, in consequence of the  methodical,   system   of    ventilation  throughout th.e property, be extended  to it.   Another upraise from No.,3 of  180 feet lands one on No. 2 tunnel, a  ... drift on, the rein also, of some 400 feet  J  in  length   reaching the surface.

Shannon and McGillivray,  the pi'in . _  cipal owners of the Ncopawa group, on   lower claims when the snow disappears  "The mines and claims in which the  company is interested are in the Slocan division of Western Kootenay, B.  C. As stated in the report, thore are  20 claims, all contiguous, covering t:io  large area of 554 acres. These are  stukcri taut,on what is known -is the  Gold Range, a mountainous region of  which some of the peaks reach an  altitude ol overld,000feet. This region  forms the central mountainous district  of British Columbia, running nearly  north and south, and lying between  the Rocky mountains on the east, and  the coast range on -the west. The  claims are situated near the mining  village of Three Forks. They extend  southwards from.the creek called Carpenter creek (which at this point is,  approximately, 2,000 feet above the  sea level) and they raise to the summit  of the mountains, nearly 7,000 feet  high. An excellent wagon road winds  up the hillside following fur fully half  the distance the course or llowiun  creek or river, a tributary of, and  flowing imrUi wards into, Carpenter  creek. The principal workings are in  two steep valleys Or baains, known as  the Alamo ba.-dn and the Idaho basin,  which botli run down in a northerly  direction 'towards Howson creek, ihe  watershed or the division between tho  two basins being formed by a sbari -  pointed shoulder, or hogback. The  TheAlanio and Idaho veins were struck  on the surface of the summit of the  mountain. The trees form a valuable  adjunct to the mine, large quantities  of timber being required for the supporting the tunnels and lor building  purposes, etc. The declivity of the  hills is an important factor in the  value of mines, tunnelling from the  hillside being a much simpler and  more economical method of mining  than sinking shalts.  "In our mines the veins have not yet  been proved to a  great depth.   There  are, however, rich mines being worked  in the vicinity of the  concentrator at  an    elevation   of 300 feet above the  level of the river.   There are also outcrops  of mineral and workings with  good showings of ore' in  every  direc- |  tion,   high and low,   and one  cannot  travel by  road  or rail  without seeing  evidences, every few hundred yards, of  mines being opened up.   It is rea'son-  ablo, therefor, to expect that the Idaho-  Alamo   veins  will go  down to great  depth.   It is our manager's intention  to do some prospecting work on  these  offer the shareholders an interest in n  thoroughh developed property, which  they had every confidence would return  good dividends. If he did not make  any promises of an early dividend, it  was from no want of confidence in their  capacity to do so. On the contrary, he  considered the early possibilities of a  dividend were excellent. They hnd  been able not only to meet,,all their  liabilities and to largelv reduce the  contingent liabilities on shares held in  other concerns, hut they also had at  this moment a considerable sum of  cash in hand Although the sum was  not. consider d as profit in thoaccnuntx,  it was so in reality; being a return  from one of tnoir investments, and it  represented an interest of 5 per cent,  on the issued capital of the company."  MINES AMD MINING.  Around the Slocan.  on  Ten Mile creek, Slocan Lake, have de  clincd overtures made this week for  the control of their property. Toronto  capitalists wore at the back of the  scheme, and their proposal was embraced in three different ways, covering a period o.f eighteen months. The  highest cash offered was S25.000, with  5O'O0O $1 shares in , addition. The  bonders offered to keep not less than  four .miners at work continuously.  The. bonds were sent all.ready for signing, but were rejected, as tne value  placed on the property is in excess oi  the figures offered. The.bonders never  Baw the Neepawa, but made the offer  on the strength of the recent strike of  clean ore thereon.  His Bearship.  in the spring. It is proposed to divert  part of the stream and carry to a sluice  tor a sulficient distance in order to  wash the surlace at various points, in  the expectation of exposing mineral  outcropings, which 'lire in most cases  only covered to a depth of a few feet  I with what is locally known as 'wash.'  During the past six months Mr.Hughes,  their manager, has been negotiating  with the smelters for a lower freight  and treatment rate, and we have just  heard that, he has been successful.in  obtaining a reduction of $15 per ton.  The smelters are all very anxious  to get the Idaho ore, as it contains  a large percentage of silica. I was informed by one of the ci.iefs of tho Canadian Pacific Railway that they would  smelt our ore at cost price in order to  secure pur traffic.: There is, however,  another factor which ought very soon  to have an important bearing on the  future prosperity of our mines. I refer to the.likelihood that'we shall have  another railway competing' with the  C.P.R., brought up to a jsoiiit. only a  few hundred below the level of our  present workings. The i.ew line, the  Great Northern Railroad, will, it is expected, start from Sandon, about Ave  miles up Carpenter creek, and situated  at an altitude of 3,000 feet above the  sea ie.vel. .This comoany has its  present terminus at Sandon, and it is  anxious to hayeitsshareof the mineral j  From the Mining Record :  Notwithstanding the unprecedented  depression in  this section of the province, it can be said with  the  utmost  truthfulness���������having rnconrce  to the  vernacular of tho regular newspaper  correspondent���������that   tlie   mines,   one  und all. never looked  so well, and  the  prospects wero never so hright and encouraging  for the   Slocan district   as  thcyarc to-day.   This is not one of the  results of the attention  which is now  being bestowed upon us in the  financial  centres of Canada   and the   Old  Country;  but rather fhc latter'is directly  traceable to   the  former.    It is  common  knowledge   that the Slocan  has been side-tracked by the representatives of capital for years, solely on  account of tho unwarranted prejudice  which  existed   against silver properties;  our mines  receiviug  but scant,  consideration  until   the district   had  risen by sheer1 pluck and  merit to an  eminence   whence  recognition   could  not longer be withheld.   Thy Payne,  that monument of wealth to which we  can always refer with justifiable pride,  continues  to beat even  its own mammoth record in the way of shipments.  Thus early in the vear it has a grand  total'' of   two   thousand live hundred  tons to its credit, and last week alone  its  output amounted  to two hundred  and seventy tons.   Tho remodelling of  this company into a strictly Canadian  concern and placing of the stock on  the open market should do a great deal  to stimulate investment in tnese parts,  more especially when the prodigious  profits already earned and still in process are thoroughly comprehended.  The Last Chance has not belied the  anticipations which were for =ned of its  capabilities last year. Although allowing the Payne undisputed right to  the title of supremacy, it is far in  advance of any other property in the  silver belt and manages to ship an  average of a car every day over its  new tramway, whieh latter, by the  way. works to perfection in the smallest detail.  Owing to the scarcity of water and  consequent stoppage of the concentrator for a time, the Slocan Star has not  figured so far this year in the list of  shippers, but this must not be construed into an indication of weakness,  because in actual fact, the very reverse  lappens to be the ease.  Silver is 59? cents and lead 34.40.  The   Slocan Stur   will soon   put  their full force again.  The Iron Mask's (Rossland) ledge is  over five feet, in width.  The 1'ayne struck a nice showing of  or������. on No. 4 tunnel recently.  Tlie Priyne Mining Co. has'paid a  dividend of 525,000 for March.  The Whitowate mine with 130 men  will soon make some big shipments.  Mr. Walton has a large tunnel contract on the Ajax Fraction, on which  he is working.  Pat Burns will probably stock the  Moliio Hughes and the California with  Eitritern capital.  D. J. McLachlan, the new manager  of tho Whitewater Dpcp, is making  ready to put on a full force of men.  Negotiations are under way for the  Enterprise mine b the London <fcB. O.  corporation. The consideration is  $750,000.  Gc-rgc Long and Nat Tucker, of  New Denver, have given an option on  the Silver Leaf, a claim own������d by-  them adjoining the Arlington group,  with Springer creek on the south. Tlie  property has the same lead as the  Arlington, but has had no work done  on it beyond assessments. The option  i? for #4,000, of which S220 was paid  down, and the balance falls due on  May 1. A. Behne, acting for the new  Arlington management, was tho_party  securing the option.  Manager Sandiford has again increased the force on the Bosun, and he  expects shortly to further add to the  working force. In the No. 2 tunnel  the paystreak has widened out and  the test winze, at is mouth, has developed a four-foot ledge, which promises  great things. The ground above No. 1  and No. 2 tunnels is to be stuped, and  when the necessary openings are made  there will be a good sized force employ! d. Another carload of ore is  sacked r������ady for shipment.-making up  the regular monthly compliment of  100 tons.  The winze  being sunk in the No. 2  tunnel at the   Wakefield  Mines,  has  now reached a depth of 70 feet.   The  ground was hard  and quite an  inflow  of water was encountered, so that the  contractors concluded to throw up the  contract aud work  for the company at  day's pay.   A good amount of ore  has  been encountered all the way down, so  the company  will  push  the work  to  completion as  fast as possible.    The  Wakefield Mines are employing a large  number of   men   doing   development  work. _   When   their   tramway   is   in  operation, the building of which is de- ,  cided upon, it will be the bigges' shipping mine in the lake region.���������Silver-  Ionian.  Sandon Ore Shipments,  Mr. Bennett, of the Palace saloon,  has a bear and 'notwithstanding all,his  bcarship's advantages of an education  he adheres  to his traditional teaching  and instincts. . In the early winter he  crawled under a building to enjoy tlie  winter in quiet and repose,  as is" the  custom  of   bears in the their unedu  cated state.   In line with the record of  his forefathers he came out of his lair  on the second of February   to see his  shadow ; and as Old Sol, around Sandon  at least, is, no respector of persons, he  refused  to climb our south hill that  day'for the bear, as he would have refused for the Mikado of Japan.   Bruin  got disgusted at this disrespect of his (the future, keeping in  bearship and went to his den for another six weeks' snooze.

It would  be a good policy, therefore, to watch  and see these predictions verified in  future shipments.  Probably the most important strike  of the month, however, has been made  in the lower tunnel of the Queen Bess.  This mine has Jong been recognizee,  is  a considerable factor   in  the   Slocan  production, but from all accounts it is  in a position to very largely increase  its oatput whenever it is deemed advisable,   news   which must   be   very  gratifying to  Mr. Milburne,  the managing-director,  who has only just returned from an extended stay  iii London.   The strike referred  to consists  of several feet of solid gaicnain No. 5,  or lower tunnel, which  has been extended ' sufficiently ��������� to tap the main  ore-chute.     Some   apprehension   was  felt at one time that the ore might not  continue as favoraMe lower down as it  did near the surface, but all'doubts' on  that point are now fortunately set at  rest.

Soups.���������All soups have a general  basis which is callsd "stock.'' The|  Prench, who aro noted for their  economy, use all sorts of scraps of  meat and bone for soup stock, keeping a kettle expressly for this use  termed a "stock pot."' Bones arc rich  in gelatinoids and thus are valuable  for soupmaking. In the ordinary  family much is thrown away and  wasted that would be valuable in (he  stock pot. It is customary to buy tha  shin bone or leg for soup. A knuckle  of veal adds substance to the stock,  being very gelatinous. Crack the  bon.'s so as to allow the wafer to penetrate to Ihe marrow. Uso ono quart  of water to each pound of meat ox-  bone. Put meat in kettle with cold  water and heat gradually, skimming  whatever scum arises to the top as it  corms to a boil. 'Let it simmer several  hours until thi meat is thoroughly  cooked, then remove meat and bones  and strain through a coarse iowel laid  in a colander, into a stone jar or  par then vessel. When cold take off  all fat that arises. This slock is useful  for a variety of soups.  Clear Soup.���������Peel and wash (ho vegetables and use them whole. This  gives the flavor without the cloudiness whioh cutting up causes Uso  one carrot, one turnip, and an onion  for three quarts of stock. Stick six  or eight cloves in the onion, add salt  and pepper and a buoquot of herbs,  parsley, green celery leaves, a bay  leaf and almost any kind of herb save  sage. Cook for two hours after adding  the vegetables and 3train before serving.  m i m  Vegetable Soup.���������A very nutritious  aud most palatable, soup that was tho  ouly dish served for tho meal in my  childhood day, was a vegetable soup.  A leg of beef with the bone well cracked was put into cold water and slowly  brought to a boil, thon simmered until  the meat dropped from the bones  which were removed. Potatoes,  onions, . rice and a variety of other  vegetables, in fact almost anything  that happened to be at hand, were  then put into the soup and cooked  till well done, salt and pepper, being  added with the vegetables. Plenty of  the "thickening' was served with the  soup and it made a bountiful'repast  satisfying the hearty, appetites of  hungry children. Some would term  this dish a "stew," but ' we always  called it "soup.''  ���������Bouillon.���������This is a delicate soup if  properly made, and is served in cups at  the beginning of a fine, dinner or  luncheon. Use seven or eight pounds  of the leg or shin of beef. Crack bones  well and put into .a kettle with cold  water to cover meat and bones, heating slowly. After it boils add a teaspoonful of salt to a quart of the  liquid. Skim frequently. Use two  carrots, two turnips, onions, one head  of celery, three white cloves, a sprig  of parsley, two young leeks, one half  teaspoon of peppercorns, and a bunch  of soup herhs. Stew gently for five  hours. Tha meat and vegetables maybe served on a platter. Strain the  soup, let it cool asnd take off the fat.  This is better if'made'.a day before  It is served. Thftn warm and add a  few tiny squares of, bread cut thin  and thoroughly toasted.  Ox Tail Soup.���������The or tail being  very gelatinous makes a fine coup  highly appreciated by epicureav Use  one ox tail, two pounds lean beef, four,  carrots, threo Jarge onions, a bunch  of thyme*: Cut the tail in pieces and  fry brown ia batter; remove and fry  the onions and carrots in the same pan.  Put the ox tall and fried , vegetables  In a simp pot with the beef out into,  slices, and the thyme, grate in two  . carrots land ponr four quarts of cold  water over the ingredients. Boil  alowy for four hours, strain, thicken  wilh two tablespoonfuls of flour. Add  ������u*     -Ablenponnful   each   of    salt   and  sugar and the juice of half a lemon.  .Beef Celery Soup.���������One quart of  solid lean beef (round steak will do),  cut into small pifxses, cover with two  auarls cold water. AVhen it comes to  a boil set back to simmer for two hours.  Then add a, stalk of celery cut into  dice, ono small onion minced, one half  cup rios well washed, one tablespoon  salt. Simmer for two hours, then add  a pint of milk, heat up again, strain  and serve.  COMMON SENSE CLOTHING.  It is impossible to estimate the  amount of suffering to which young  children are condemned by tho fads of  ihi?ir parents. The poor little' things  cannot cure for themselves, nor can  they protest against the well-  mount cruelty of thoso whose charge  they are. Societies exist for the prevention of cruelty to children, but  their right to interfere stops short of  the control of tho hygienic heresies of  parents.  Fortunately for the succeeding* generations of .mankind, these* hygienic  faddists are not in tho majority und  most parents let their children; grow  up under a common-sense method of  health training, or perhaps under no  method whatever, which is tho next  best  thing.  Mistaken parents may be roughly  designated under two grand divisions,  ���������the coddlers and tho toughners,���������  and it is hard to say which do tho more  harm.  'J ho theory of the coddlers is , that a  breath of cold ain is death-dealing, to  the tender child, and that the chief  end of man is the avoidance of  draughts; and so they bundle up their  children with layer upon layer of  heavy woollen garments, from the  soles of tho feet to the crown of the  head.  'I heir children are apt to grow weaklings, if they grow up at all, but their  sutlerings are light and their perils  few in comparison with those that  beset the victims of the toughening, or  hardening process,  ���������J he child  of this system  is brought  ul a ve^ ' unhappy creature,  up in accordance with tho belief that  all that is necessary Id health and  long life is to defy the elements and  common sense. Deluded parents think  they are creating a strong constitution  and point triumphantly to some robust lad who has survived the process,  forgetting that it is only children of  n.Hurally tho strongest constitution  who come through it at all.  Formerly fashion aided the toughening, faddists, ���������-, and tiny tots, went  around in the houso, and often out-of-  doors, with half-bare legs and' arms  and low-cut dresses hardly reaching to rriej.dshiD  tho    knees,    Nowadays     the    dress of j ,  young children perhaps leans in the  direction ol coddling, with its unhealthy neck-wraps and ear-mufflers.  It is hard in this changeable climate  to keep the mean between the two extremes, but parents do uot go far  wrong who clothe litilo children in  light flannels in all but tho hottest  woith^r, and who vary the outer clothing in accordance withi the temperature. The child should wear! clothes  enough not fo lccl cold but not  enough to keep it perspiring, for thon  cold-catching is inevitable.  CHILDREN'S    ACCIDENTS.  Sometimes by accident or through  some foolish prank a foreign body enters a child's ear or an insect mayfly  into it. In the latter case, if a little  warm water is thrown gently into   the  !���������  livery great man has owed much to  the pre-eminent love or influence of  some one woman in his life. Most often this woman is his mother; sometimes it is a wife, but there are instances sufficient to fill a book with  stories of the dominant sway being  held by a sister.  There need not ' remaini tho least  shadow of a doubt but that (he woman Moses look most deeply into his  confidence and on whom he most  firmly relied was his sister Miriam, a  woman considerably his senior and by  whose cleverness and tact' he was restored to his mother from this watery  cradle. Miriam was certainly ono of  Moses' favorite lieutenants during that  perilous business of getting Isreal out  of Egypt. She cheered the fainting  hearts of the1 Jews by her admirable  songs, dancing and music, and even  the terse sentences of the Old Tosla-  menl. cannot conceal Moses' genuine  grief when Miriam was stricken with  leprosy,- nor his enthusiastic pleading  with the living God to restore her  health.  Certainly, for any woman less beloved and less honored than his sister, he would scarcely have done so  much, for it is plainly said that jealousy of Moses' affection1 for his Ethiopian wife brought down' this curse  upon her. She lived and worked apparently to a good old age, and was  buried with honors before her people reached  the promised   land.  Li is a curious coincidence that the  sisters who have wielded most influence havo been always older than their  great brothers, and the margravine, of  Bayreuth, Sophie Wilhelminu, Crown  Princess of Prussia, was some years  the senior of Frederick the Great. She  was a strange, passionate,    clover and  but  she stands quite alonei as the one  woman whom Frederick sincerely loved, for whoso advico he, had respect  and whose memory he tenderly cherished. During his tragic youth it  was in her he confided, with her he  invariably corresponded, and Frederick had no great, reverence for tho  feminine intellect. For his mother  ho felt a respectful indifference,  his wife not even a sentiment of  while his other sisters  merely bored him, but. poor Sophie,  with all her faults, evoked in hirn a  devotion and reverence that lasted to  tho enu of her days.  Charles V., was another monarch  who said in all his life he had known  but one woman whom he could trust  in and rely on as he would a man,  and that woman was his sister, Mary  of Hungary. Sho was a woman after  Ch'irles' own rugged and warlike heart,  and ho showed how highly ho estimated her talents and her virtues  when he made her Regent of Holland  aud Flanders.  A less masculine creature would perhaps have failed to secure Charles'  esteem, and in spite of the heavy  beard   that would grow  on  her  stern  rage on the hearth and fuddled hit  brain With brandy, Augusta could  soothe and control him( by a word  Sho kept tks friendship ot his foolish  and almost unmanageable wife, and  brought about the only intervals of  peace that reigned between the pair  and what is chiefly to her credit she  never allowed her unhappy brother  to critize or defame his wife before  her ' !  ;  "'���������  So far as lay within his power, -Byron'repaid this patient and generou  sinter, nis only child was named foi  her, dying ho left her everything save  enough for the support of his wife  and daughter, and 'his "Stanzas to  Augusta" are eloquent ot deeper,  truer emotions than any other human  being ever aroused in him.  "Though human, thou didst not deceive me;  Though woman, though didst not for-  Bake. '  .  Though loved, thou foreborest to  grieve mo;  Though slandered,, thou couldst never  shake.  When near his death in Greece his  letters to Augusta are full of pathetic,  almost child-like reliance on her good  sense, her unfailing love to see that  all went well for his daughter, and  that his wifo could bo brought to a  reconciliation, and it was the generous, long-suffering Augusta who followed him to his tomb and fixed the  laudatory   tablet above hia grave.  A genuinely good, unselfish, valuable sister, whose good, work meant  more to the world of art than tho public  gives her credit for, was Margaret  van Eyck. She was tho only sister  of thoso great Flemish artists, Jan  and Hubert van Eyck. To keep house  for them, to grind their colors, to  nurse, help and encourage her two  great brothers Margaret foreswore  marriage. This sturdy Dutcli) woman  herself painted miniatures admirably,  and was, along with1 Jan and"-Hubert,  honored and decorated for the same;  but, like Caroline Herschcl, she had  rather a contempt for her'own achievements, and studied to paint in order  that she might more intelligently assist  them.  Jan and Hurbert apparently estimated this sister vary highly and cherished her tenderly. They also remained unmarried, and the throe lie side  by side in t he old town of Tregon., Undivided in death as in  life.  "I am nothing. I have done nothing; all I know I owe! to my brother.  I am only a tool ho shaped to his  use. Any well-trained puppy dog would  have learned as much," said Caroline  narwhal when some one tried to laud  her own achievements.

No   ono   person  in   a   hundred  who  travels has any idea of the Bpeed ot a  train, .and    even  a    large  percentage  of   the   regular   trainmen  cannot tell  ivilh   any   degree  of  accuracy.   Engineers   uso   thoir driving wheel    as    a  gauge.   Thoy  know its circumference,"  and by counting its revolutions within a certain time can tell very accurately the speed at which (hey are running.   A    favorite  method of    timing  among passengers is to count the telegraph poles.   As a rule these poles are  plauled   thirty    to   tho  mile,    but   hi  prairie countries, whero only a single  wire is used the number diminishes to  twenty-five,  so  that  Iho rule will  nut  always work.,Tho most accurate method, and Ihe most in use by experienced railroad men, is to count lhe number of rail joints the train passes over  in  twenty seconds.   The rails on nearly all roads aro thirty feet in length,.-  and  the number passed over in twenty   secoaila   is   the  speed  per  hour    a  train   is  running.   For   instance,   if  a  -passenger  can count   thirty  clicks oh.  a  rail   joint  in    twenty    seconds  (he  train  is running at a speed of thirty'  miles an hour.   Actually,  (his method  falls a little short, as in the example  given above the speed would be nearer   thirty-one'  than   thirty   miles,   but  it is near enough for all practical purpose.1,. ,'  BELGIUM'S RIP VAN WINKLE.  baked  his bread, and sat up all night in the  open air. breathing on. her ink to koep  it    warm while   lhe  groat astronomer  to h-er and swept the heav  oven taught herself to love  a   hard job    for   a jealously  car with a small syringe made for the j cIu,"' ������������   thc brawuJr !U'1ns. thjlt would  purpose, and thc ear is then held downward, the insect will float out on (he  surface of the water.

Another  THR  CARE  OF   LAMPS.  Iu many of our city homes, one may  light a score of electric suns by merely pressing a button, or bring out  the mellow moon-like radiance of gaa  by turning a screw and lighting a  match, but there are thousands of  families who depend on the kerosene  lamp for their nightly cheer and  brightness, and when these lamps are  properly cared for, they will give a  light not to be despised, A sputtering  flickeiing flame, a smoked chimney  and a disagreeable odor are not  necessary, and do not reflect uny  credit upon the housekeepor who has  them in charge.  The easiest and best way of toughening glass and making it moro durable is as follows: Place it in a tin  pail, for protection, and immerse it in  the reservoir of your cook stove, in the  morning when the water is cold. Let  it remain throughout the entire day  und the following night, during which  it will cool slowly., Do this when you  are to have a fire all day.

The king  one day hearing a drove of hogs tuning up preparatory to a general rush  for and promiscuous scramble at the  slop pail, laughingly ordered the priest  to contrive means by which these  seemingly discordant sounds might  produce harmony. Tradition does'not  affirm that tho reverned gentleman  icratched his head thereat, but owing  to the prevalence of .the tonsure it is  jafe to assert that he did not. Notwithstanding which, however, he man-  iged to nicely grade the drove, from  the thin .treble of tho shoat to the  bassoon grunt of the tusked boar, and  Saving arranged' them in stalls under  i pavilion announced to his astonish-  id Majesty, who had not thought of  the matter sinco, that the piano was  In tune.

In moving the adoption of tho Directors' Report Mr.  KernH referred to the steady and (Substantial growth ol'  the Company's business ; thc laryc increase from year te  year in itsint'ome, assets and aurplus. , lie stated that  while the expenditure had been de reased 6.58 por cent  in tho last year, the assets of the company had increa'cd  19.90 per cent., the net surplus 37.92 per cent, and the  roberve funds 31.41. per cent, the capital and assets  having now reached $1,475,333.41.  He quoted from the December number of The Economist to show that the fjompany hod so carefully mas-  aued tho investment of funds as to ear-> a better rate of  interest in each of the past oight years than the average  rate earned by all of the Canadian life assurance  companies. The rate earned by the Fedrral in lE97--the  last year in which Ihe average cwn be obtained from the  report of the Superintendent of Insurance���������was 5.64 per  cent., and the average rate earned by all tho Canadian  companies 4.48 per cent.

'1  Hi  ���������J V f  I  tlbe^tninGlRevi^vP  SATURDAY..  .���������APRIL'! .8,'..'.1899,  -  MORE CRY THAIS' WOOL.  A grout ileal more gush find balder-  'diish has appeared in the local papers,  and  the Spokesman-Review, over this  eight-hour Taw  then' there  wnsmiy  necessity for.   It is nil right to comment on the wisdom  or. unwjsdom of  the enactment;  but' when motives.'for  ,  miners  and nil no owners,, as well  as  rniinufact-  iness community, they are doing their  part nobly ; 'but we do think' the mine  owners should do more. There is not  one.of'them.that should not take from  ���������ten .to, fifty copies ..weekly and send  them to parties outside who are looking this way. Such support would  enable all local publishers to do a service for their -locality ; they could not  do otherwise, and should iiot be ex  peeled to do at their own expense.  well   be  has tho  intentions   for   both,-, are  ured'rmt   of imagination, it becomes'  .unqualified   misenief.      In   the   first  ' place the power of a government  to  pass   suel.   legislation   m.-.y  .questioned.     A  government  ' ��������� right'to say what aday's. work; shall be  'just, as well.'as  it;lias the right to say.  whttt legal interest.on loans  shall be ;  but it has no right to say a man will  . be subject to a penalty  if he works  '.more than, a given number' of hours in  - a'-clay;:':nor has it -..'tlie right: to say. ������  ... man is liable  to 'a'fine- for, employing  another,, in   any employment,; more'  ��������� than a given numbcr.'of hours a day,1  ; and..especially in occupations- where  public interests in amy way are, in-.'  volved.   We are confident that such a  ' "statute would, be declared, .ultra vires  in the courts; .      ;.        ,. '���������'���������, ������������������_���������'-  ''���������:.':' Again iii this case, as the statute in  '���������'question is not one to be enforced by  any one before'any local court, as most  statutes are, and'can only bo taken up  .by the government itself practically,  .' there was, 'and is.-the less cause for a  .fuss.over-it.������������������;,.��������� ., '.  ...  ' We believe  miners and owners can  ��������� go on as usual adopting., whatever service is;-most satisfactory to both, and  the government will have-, too much  sense to interfere.^ In all countries  where the durational' a day is fixed by-  law" 'or'.custom; employes can .charge  for overtime,, where, hours are not  agreed on between botli-parties.- The  same ."will be true of mining, in B. 0.  and that is all there will be aboiit.it...  , There .may not be room for it yet,  but it appears to most' people that  there is no place in the. country  ���������that will present, in the near future,  11 belter ^'opening for a machine shop  than Sandon.' Mines employing machinery are developing on every hand,  aiid tlioreis.no machine shop, of any  importance nearer than ,'.. Vancouver,  too far distant to.be of any service. In  addition to stoping machinery, in general use, mills will shortly be in connection with one-half the.mines���������warranting a large volume of work for a  machine shop.   ...    ;���������',��������� /  It is amusing to run over the quotations of stocks in such papers as the  Nelson Miner and ns Rossland namesake,'..Some of the quotations' are 20  percent, higher .than the prices for  \yliich stock can be bought, and others  are 20 per cent, lower than the figures  for which the stocks can be sold in  blocks. The figures that may be asked  or offered by Tom, Dick and Harry,  who have a few shares, in any miiic  to sell,, should never . be reported as  values., .,   ,  :���������;"'. OUT OF UNISON.";        "  What will and what will not be the  result1 of the eight-hour movement, it  is impossible to imagine at the present moment. All who interview mem ���������  ���������bers of the government conic back  with the assurance that unless they  . are petitioned by. the men to enforce  the law, they are.nof disposed to interfere, but willing to let the old usage  drift along as long as it is without friction;' On the other hand, Inspector  of Mines McGregor, who reached the  city Thursday <3vening, says he is. instructed to enforce the law and is here  for that purpose. He has inaugurated  the system at Rossland and elsewhere.  It is not, however, likely he will take  any executive action - himself for infractions or 'non-observance, but will  rnerelj , after telling owners and men  what his instructions and their duty  are, report to the government, leaving  further action to them. There is,"to  say the least of it, an incompatibility  between the version of things which  visitors to:Victoria get from the government and Mr. McGregor's instructions, and it is on the outcome of this  that'it is so difficult to express an  opinion.  CURED TO STAY CURED.  ���������'���������It's a wonderful record of permanent  cures Burdock Blood Bitters is presenting. Instances are given'of such serious diseases as . cancers, scrofulus  sores, salt rheum, erysipelas,,!, abseccs-  ses, running sores, etc, where B.B.B.  made a cure three, four or even twelve  years ago, and the disease has shown  110 signs of returning." '.  TION   OF:��������� THE i-CITV OF  BYLAW-Nttli  People  generally purchase articles  for the actual direct benefit  they receive from their nse.   Many patronise  local papers on the same basis, but it  should not  be sO, and especially in a  mining country like this.   A property  holder will say of a local paper "I read  :   all the local news there is in it���������often  a borrowed copy;���������in  a  few minutes,  and it is of little service to me."   From  one point of  view this may be  quite  true, but it is not   the OHly standpoint  from which the value of an enterprising local  paper should be  measured.  In a country like this the local paper  speaks  weekly to many outside whose  interest in  the district   thc   resident  property-holder desires to enlist.   In  j addition to speaking itself to outsiders  ' items from the paper   are copied by  the metropolitan dailies, as   The Re-  . view frequently ia by the Toronto and  Montreal press; and, therefore, read by  the hundreds of thousands,  whose attention  the   local property holder, is  daily   endeavoring to   arrest.    It   is,  therefore, from this indirect service to  a   community   that the   local   paper  ought to. be patronized.   We have no  reason at all to complain of the support The Review has received,  since  its commencement, by the local bus-  Wherkas the Corporation of the City  of Sandon has expended the sum of ten  thousand seven hundred dollars ($10,-  700) in improving the channels of Car*  penter and Sandon creeks in said city  for the protection of property.  And "YVhrU'eaS it is deemed expedient,  in tile interests of the said city and for  the protection of property, to further  improve the channels of said creeks,  and, if necessary, to divert the channels  of said croeks:  And Wh'erbas a petition has been pre.  sented to ' the Municipal Council of  tho Corporation of said City ol  Sandon, signed by the owners of at  least one-tenth of the value of the  Real property in the said; city (as  shown by the lust revised assessment  roll) requesting the said council to introduce a by-law to raise the sum of  fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000) for the  purpose of paying for the expenditure  already made in improving the channels  of the said creeks, and lor paying for  the -expenditure to be hereafter "'incurred for further improving the chai:  nels of the said creeks : <-'  ' And -Whereas' the whole amount of  tho ratable Ileal property of the said  city according to the last revised assessment roll is three hundred and sixty-one  thousand six hundred and fifty dollars  ($361,(550). .

The outlook in mining circles round  the Slocan Lake camps has improved  a great deal of late, and the chances  arc favorable for 11 good and lively  summer's operations. Toronto and  Montreal parties arc seeking bonds on  aL number ol properties and _Spwknno  operators) are once more turning their  attention this way. Tne Ten Mile,  Springer and Lemon creek camps, in  particular, are passing out of the  gloom tliat has overshadowed them for  the past two years. Much ol this is  due to t.ho change in the allairs of the  Arlington, on "Springer creek. A.  Bethune, writing lrom Spokane, states  that tie new Arlington management  has $50,000 in the, bank for development purposes. This should place the  group in a position to pay regular dividends.' Thc effect of the deal on the  camp is encouraging to those who  have been holding on so long. Coupled  wilh ibis are other movements inui-  cating that a reaction for the better  hiis set in.  The Repoit Not Encouraging.  Toronto, April 4.���������Mclfort Boulton,  secretary of the Deer Paik Mining  Company, has issued an official statement to the effect that the report on  thc Deer Park Mining Company's  property received from J. B. Hastings  is of a disappointing nature, and that  in the present workings there are no  ore reserves in sight. It is proposed  to call a shareholders' meeting to increase the capital to carry on future  development on lines suggested by  Mr. Hastings. Thc Deer Park is  chiefly owned in Toronto, and thc comparative failure of the property will  probably tend to discourage speculation in Rossland mines for a while.

It is tin: period when she blossoms  from girlhood into womanhood. ,  At this momentous time the best medicine for a woman to take is Dr. Pieice's  Favorite Prescription. It acts directly upon the delicate and important organs that  are to bear the burdens of wifehood and  motherhood. It makes them strong-,  healthy and vigorous. It corrects all  irregularities and displacements and stops  exhausting drains. Taken during the period of expectant maternity, it banishes  the usual annoyances and makes baby's  coming- easy and almost painless. It insures the new-comer's health and an ample  supply of nourishment. It transforms  weak, sickly, nervous, complaining women into happy,, healthy wives. Thousands of women have told over their own  signatures, the .story of the marvelous  merits of this great medicine. - An honest dealer will not try to persuade you  to take something' different from what you  ask for, for the sake of a few pennies added profit.  Mrs. Anna Ulrich, of Elm Creek, Buffalo  Co., Neb., writes: ".I was under doctors' care  for two years with uterine disease. I was so  weak that I could sit up in bed only a few moments. I commenced taking; Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription aud when I had taken ouc-  hatf dozen bottle-; J was up aud going wherever  I pleased, and have been very strong ever since  ���������that was two years aud a half ago."

No one can be healthy with the kidneys  In a diseased or disordered state. The  poisonous Uric Acid which il is thoir  duty to fillur out of the blood, is carried  into the system and produces Rheumatism, Headaches, Backaches and lmn-  drccis of ills and ailments.  Any one who has the slightest suspicion  that tJie kidneys aro not, acting right  should tako Bonn's Kidney Pills. They  are tho most effective kidney romedy  known. iUr. Conrad Beyer, at E. K.  Snyder's Shoe Stoic. Berlin, Out., bears  this out when he says:  "Anyono sutiering with kfHnoy troubles  cannot do hotter than take Doan's Kidney Pills, for thoy cured my wife who  has been afflicted with pain in the back  and other kidney troubles for a long  ..me. They have helped a great many  of my acquaintances in this town, and I  must say they are tho medicine that  reach tho kidneys with"the best effects."  Northern Pacific Ry.

"It were better for you, John Fcr-  rior," bo thundered, ;"that you and sho  wero now lying blanched skeletons upon the Sierra Blanco, than that you  should put your weak wills against  the orders of tho Holy Four 1"  With a threatening gesture of his  hand he turned from the door, and  Ferrier heard his heavy step scrunching, along the shingly path.  He was still sitting with his elbowa  upon his knees, considering how be  should broach the ��������� matter to his  daughter, wben a soft hand was laid  upub" his, and' looking up, he saw her  removes my father, I shall have his  tanning-yard and his leather-factory.  Then I am your'elder, and am higher  in the church."  "It will bo for the maiden to decide,'' rejoined young Drobber, smirking at bis own reflection in the glass.  '"We will .leave it; all to her decision."  During this .dialogue, John Ferrier  bad. stood fuming in the doorway,  hardly able to keep his riding-whip  from the backs of his two visitors.  "J.ook hero,'"' be said, at last, striding up to tluT-i, "when my daughter  summons you, you can come; but until  then, I don't wanL to see your faces  again." -  The'''' two young Mormons stared at  him in amazement. In their eyes this  competition between them for the  maiden's hand was ihe highest of honors both to her and her father.  ' 'There aro two ways out ot the  room," cried Ferrier; " there is the  door, and there is the window. Which  do you care to, use ?"  His brown face looked so savage, and  hands so threatening, that  r foot and  o old farrii-  f if teen to ten; but there was no news  of the absentee: One by one the numbers dwindled' down; and still there  came no sign of him. Whenever a  horseman clattered down the road or  a driver shouted at his team, the old  farmer hurried to the gate,' thinking  that help had arrived at last. At  last, when he saw fivo give way to  four, and that again to three, he lost  heart, and abandoned all hope of  escape. Single-handed, and with his  limited knowledge of the mountains  which surrounded tho settlement, bo  know that he was powerless.

John Furrier uttered thaso consoling remarks in a v(ery confi-dont tone,  but shecould not help observing that he  paid unusual care to the fastening  of the doors that night, and'that he  carefully, cleaned and loaded the rusty  old shot-gun which hung upon the wall  D'f his  bedroom. -2  his  CHAPTER .IV.  On the morning which followed his  interview with the Mormon prophet,  John Ferrier went.into Salt Lake City,  and having found his acquaintance,  who was bound tor the Nevada Mountains, he intrusted him with his message to. Jefferson : Hopo. In it he  told the young man of the imminent  danger which threatened them, and  how necessary it was that he should  return. Having done this,( he felt  easier in his mind, and returned home  with a lighter heart.  As he approached his farm, he was  surpriscd-to see a horse hitched to each  nf the posts of the gate. Still- more  surprised was he on entering to find  two young men in possession ot his  sitting-rooml One with a long, pulo  face, was leaning hack in the rocking-  chair,- with his feet cocked up upon the  stovo, The other, a bull-necked youth  with coarse bloated- features, was  standing in front o������ the window, with  his hands in his pockets, whistling a  popular hymn. Both of them nodded  to Ferrier as he entered, and tha one  in the rocking chair commenced the  conversation.  "Maybe you don't know us," he said.  "This here is.the son of Elder Drebber, and I'm Joseph Stangerson, who  traveled with you in the desert when  the Lord stretched out His band  and gathered you into the true fold."  ��������� "As he 'will, all tho nations,~in His  own good time," said the other, in a  nasal voice; "He grindoth slowly but  exceedingly small."  John Ferrier bowed coldly. He bad  guessed who his visitors were.  We have come," continued Stangerson, "at fhe advice of our fathers, to  solicit the hand- of- your daughter for  whichever of us may'seam good to you  and.to her. As I have but four wives  and Brother .Drebber here has seven,  it appears to me that my claim is the  stronger one."  i "Nay, nay, Brother Stangerson,".  'cried the other; "the question is not  h'ow many wives we have, but how  many we can keep. My father has  now given over his mills to me, and I  tun the sloher man."  But my prospects are better," said  the  other,  waxmly.   "Wh������������  *h������  Lord  ill 13     Ut>������wi,v,.i , .jm.-.-   ;  ���������When the Lord I  Yes. It will not be'long before he  comes. The sooner fh������ better, for we  do not know what their next move  may bo,"  A was, indeed, high time that some  one capable of giving advice and help  should come to the aid of the sturdy  old farmer and his adopted daughter.  In the whole history of the settlement  there had never been such a case of  rank disobedience to the authority of  the elders. If minor errors were punished so sternly, what iwould be the  fate of this arch rebel . Ferrier knew  that his wealth and position would be  of no avail to him. Others as well  known and as rich as himself had been  spirited away before now, and their  goods given over to the Church^ He  was a brave man, but ho trembled at  thc vague, shatdowy terrors which hung  over him. Any known danger he could  face with a firm lip, but this suspense  was unnerving. He concealed his fears  from his daughter, however, and af-  fectod'to make light of the whole matter, though she, with - the keen eye  of  love,   saw  plainly  that  he  was   ill  at ease.-       ���������.-    He expected that he would receive  some message or remonstrance! from  Young as to his conduct, and he was  not mistaken, though it came in an  unlooked-for manner. Upon rising  next morning, he found to his surprise, a fuL square of paper pinned  on to the coverlet of his bed just over  his chest. On it was printed, in bold,  straggling letters:  " Twenty-nine   days   are  given   you  for amendment,  and then���������" ft  The dash was more fear-inspiring  than any threat could have been. How  this warning come into his room puzzled John Ferrier Borely, tor  his servants slept in' an out-house  and the doors and windows had all  been secured. He crumpled the paper  up and said nothing to his daughter,  but-tbe incident struck a chill into his  heart; Tho twenty-nine days were  evidently the balance of tho month  which Young had promised. What  strength or courage could avail against  an enemy armed with such mysterious  powers? The hiind which fastened  that pin might have struck him to the  heart, and he could never have known  who had slain  him.  Still more shaken was. he next  morning. They had sat down to thoir  breakfast when Lucy, with a cry of  ���������urprise, pointed upward. In the center of the ceiling, was scrawled, with  a burned stick apparently, the number 28. To his daughter it.was-unintelligible, and he did not enlighten  her. ; That night he sat up with Ins  gun and kept watch and ward. He  saw and he heard nothing, and yet in  the morning a great 27 had been  painted upon the outside of his door.  Thus day followed day ; and as sure  as morning.came he found that his unseen enemies had kept their register,  and had marked up in some conspicuous  position how many days were still left  to him out of the month of grace. Sometimes the fatal numbers appeared upon the walls; sometimes upon thc floors;  occasionally they were on small placards stuck upon th������ garden-gate or  the railings. With all his vigilance  John Ferrier could.not discover whence  these daily warnings proceeded. A  horror, which was almost superstitious, came upon him' at the sight of  ihem. He became haggard and restless, and his eyes had the troubled  look of some haunted creature. He  had but one hope in life now, and that  was for the arrival of the young hunter from Nevada.  Twenty had changed  to fifteen, and  her more valued possessions. Opening  the window very slowly and carefully,  (hey waited until a dark cloud had  somewhat obscured [lie night, and then  ono by ono passed through into ihe  little garden. With bated breath and  crouching figures thoy stumbled across  ii and gained the shelter of the hedge,  which they skirted unlil they came lo  the gap which opened into the cornfield. , They had juH reached this  point when the young man seized his  two companions and dragged them  down into the shadow, whore they lay  silent., and trembling.  To be Continued.  who had come to carry out tho murderous order of the secret tribunal?  Or was it somo agent who was marking up that the last day of grace had  arrived. John Ferrier felt; ,that instant death would he belter than  the suspense which shook! his i nerves  and chilled his, heart. Springing forward, he drew thol bolt and threw tho  door open.  Outside all was calm, and quift. The  night was fine, and' the stars were  twinkling brighily overhead. The little front garden lay before the farmer's eyes, bounded by ihe fence aud  gate; but neither there nor on the road  was any human being to be seen.  Wilh a sigh ot relief Ferrier looked to  right and to. left, until happening to  glance straight down atl his feet he  saw,'to- his astonishment, a man lying  flat upon hi.s face upon the ground,  with his arms ami legs all asprawl. ���������  So unnerved was he at the sight that  he leaned up against the wall wilh  his hand to his throat to strifle his inclination to call out. His first thought  was that the prostrate figure was  that oC some wounded or dying man,  but as he watohedj it he1 saw it writhe  along the ground and into thc hall  wilh the rapidity and noiselessne ���������> of  a serpent. Once -within the house,  the man sprung to his feet, closed the  door, and revealed to the astonished  farmer the fierce fac?. and resolute expression of Jefferson Hope. .  "Good God!" gasped John", Ferrier,  How you scared ��������� me!'--'What ever  made you come in'   like   that?"  "Give me food," the ' oihn'r said,  hoarsely. "I-have had no time' for  bite or slip for eight-and-forty hours."  He flung himself upon the cold meat  and bread which were still lying upon  the table from his host's supper, and  devoured them voraciously. "Does  Lucy bear up well?" he asked, when  he had satisfied his hunger." .  , "Yes. She does not' know ' the danger," her father answered. , V. ..;'..���������  "That is well. The house is watched on every side. . 'That is why I crawled my way up . to a. They may \e  darned sharp, but they're not quite  sharp enough, to catch a Y/ashoe hunter." ,...-...-'���������'..���������  John Ferrier felt a different, man  now that he realized, that he had a  devoted ally; He seized the young  man's leathery hand and wrung it  cordially!.  "You're a man to be proud" of," he  said. "There are not many who would  come to share our danger and our  troubles."  "You've hit it there, pard," tbo  young hunter answered. "I have a respect for you, but if you were alone in  this business I'd think twice before I  put my head into such a hornets'  nest. It's Lucy that brings me here,  and before harm comes on her I guess  there will be. one less o' the Hope  family in Utah." '  "What are we to do?"  "To-morrow is your last day, and unless you act to-night you are lost. I  have a mule and two horses waiting in  the Eagle Knviue. Howi much money  have you?"  "Two thousand dollars in gold, and.  five  in  notes."  "That will do. I have as much more  to add to it. We must push for Carson  City through tho mountains. You  had best wake Lucy. It is as well  that the servants do not sleep in tbe  house."  While Ferrier was absent preparing  his' daughter, for the approaching  journey, ' Jefferson Hope packed all  the eatables that he could find into a  small parcel, and filled a stoneware jar  with water, for ho knew by experience that the mountain wells we're  fe.w and far between. He had hardly  completed his arrangements before the  farmer returned with his.daughter all  dressed arid ready for a start. Tbi-  greeting between tho lovers was warm  but brief, for minutes wero precious,  and there  was. much to be done.  "We must start at once," said Jefferson Hope, speaking in a low but  resolute voice, like one who realizes the  greatness of the peril, but; has steeled  his heart to meet it.. "The front and  back entrances are watched! but with  caution we may got away through the  side window and across the fields.  Once on the road, we are only two  miles from the ravine where the horses  BERLIN SUPERSTITION.

For instance, many a housewife  would feel aa if she were just tempting tha fat������se if she were' to allow a  room to be swept at night; for, while  thc dust was going out, she would  argue, trouble would be sure to creep  in.

I shall never forget tho scene I once  witnessed in a German household when  the fact became known that'I had  broken a looking lass. The thing was  of no great value���������it was only a little  hand mirror���������and as I was its owner,  I was at a loss to understand why the  breaking of it should cause so much  excitement.

With regard to the moon,  endless superstitions prevail, hot' only  in Berlin, but throughout Germany, and  among them the old English superstition that to see the new moon through  glass brings, misfortune. There are superstitions too, with regard to the colour of the horses one may meet. Some  people will walk miles on the chance  of coming across a piebald horse, just  iib others wil. go far out of their way  to avoid one that is " skewbald." Then  tlie way the birds fly, how tho leaves  fall to the ground, whether stairs do  or do not creak.and whether door-bells  ring' or remain at rest, are all matters fraught with significance for Ber-  liners, and not for them alone, for in  every land old superstitions die hard.  SEEN  IN THE    LITTLE CAGE.  Tho.se who have first gazed in dismay, and then laughed, at their own  distorted reflections in a . concave or  convex mirror will appreciate an  amusing occurrence lately witnessed  at a menagerie.  Here and there between the cages  Were placed trick mirrors which reflected a distorted image. Ani Irishman, after a critical survey of the  monkeys, had wandered away,, from  his better half, and suddenly found  himself in front of one of these mirrors. After a glance at his distorted  reflection, he rushed hack to his  wife, who was still watching the antics of thc monkeys.  Come, away wid ye, Bridget! he exclaimed. Oi've found a bigger trate  than that���������the ugliest baste in the  show! He's in a little cage in the corner.

Don't stay  in sucl. a rut of ��������� thoughtlessness any  longer. When' houso cleaning, tack  mosquito netting over the attic window* to shut out flies, and so be ready  to add another hot-weather comfort to  your list.   ���������  Matting is a wholesome and cool  looking floor coverings for bedrooms  in hot Weather, but only the better  grades are durable, and even these  soon break if a bedstead is daily drawn  over them.  A great (deal is said in praise of  highly decorative wall papers, especially those having floral designs for. bedrooms. Some of them are deserving,  Are beautiful in every way; but for  a person of quiet tastes nine-tenths of  thum would make a room intolerable  by their glaring and incongruous combinations of colors. The decorations  for tho walls of a bedroom should always be in light,- delicate colors, but  iu order to make the' effect of tho  room as u whole quiel and restful, the  colors must be soft and harmonious, or  in pleasing accord, and the pattern unobtrusive.'  Scotch-Holland window-shades cost  more at first than unglazed domestic  ones, but they are safer, aud cheaper  in the end too, because they can be  cleaned again and again with a damp  cloth.  The decorative possibilities ot half-  length f������ash-curia'uis are small but  when made of inconspicuous material  they are not in Lhe least obtrusive, and  front a practical standpoint, they are  unequaled. .Small metal rods, with  socket euds, now cost but a trifle.

Saving  yourself during thc trying months of  summer, when of necessity tho farmer's wife must do more cooking than  at any other season of the year, is a  thousand times wiser than saving a  few dollars by burning half-rotten old  fence  rails and  boards,  true of rugs, or of taking hold of ono  rttul and whipping them.

J3orax is less likely to  fade carpets than ammonia, and will  freshet: the colors equally well. Use  in the proportion of ono heaping teaspoonful   to  a  gallon  of  hot  water.  Ingrain filling, plain carpet, makes  i charming background for rugs, but  it shows dust aud litter as quickly as  a polished floor.  Borax is also unequaled for washing  iace' curtains. Very much of the  strain which ordinarily comes on long  lace, curtains in washing can be avoided by doubling each curtain al the  middlt lengthwise and tying a strip  of old muslin loosely around it at two  points between tho fold and the ends.  Soak fifteen minuie-s at a time in  warm water, to which borax has been  added in the proportion named above ;  sque-ezt- (and press .down with the  bauds, and in raising always take hold  of the muslin lie-string, and wring  gently through a wringer.

The failure of the Uganda expedition,  which returned to Cape Towu jaded  and disheartened some weeks ago,  brings to mind the awfuLsignificanco  of something generally regarded as nil.  The troops who were to penetrate to  tbo heart of Ugandaland started out  with tho best equipments, of the time;  they returned without the loss of a  man. Yet tho officers united in maintaining that until colder weather the  quest was hopeless. They stood appalled before the inroads of the tsetse fly,  which spared tho men on account of  lhe  beasts ,of burden.  Inhabitants of all but arctic countries aro familiar in some form or other with the genus fly. India, Arabia,  Asia Minor and the Western States  of America have for ages and do periodically suffer from  INROADS OF THESE PESTS.  The ignorant dweller in the town,  under guiso of mosquito, house fly or  horse fly, is acquainted with ihem. Yel  few realize that in many, instances attacks from swarms 01" the, insects have  proved fatal, that whole armies have  again   and   again   fled  before   them.  A decade ago tho British Isles were  thrown into a slate of agitation over  the announcement ihaL a certain tiny  fly had been ravaging the continent  ot America. Tho Hessian fly, as tho  entomologist has denominated the insect, is a very tiny bit, lhe female, the  laiger of tho two, being scarcely an  oighth of an inch in, length. Yet, laying its microscopic eggs iu the young  shools and roots of barley, wheat and'  rye, ii devastated thousands of miles  of grain fields in the United SLales  aud Canada. Its appearnce in England was the signal for a most systematic crusade in all quarters, Parliament  taxing the lead in a manner so prompt  that in less than a year tho fly had  disappeared. The House Committee,  presided over by Mr. Charles Gray, a  specialist in the line, exorcisod thc most  stringent precautions, dressing the  fields over the four kingdoms, with expensive manures, lime, soot and salt.  A hundred thousand 'laborers devoted an entire summer to! the extermination of insects, who, in their aggro-  gate could have weighed little more  lhan one ton. Yet millions of dollars'  worth of grain, not only for that year,  but for many to come, was saved.  During the last Itusso-Turkish War  a regiment of Cossack infantry, marching to attack an outpost near Eliza-  baihpol, was suddenly enveloped by a  cloud of locusts. After vainly trying  every possible method of extermination  from using their rifles flail fashion to  volley firing, the soldiers were forced  to  SCATTER IN ALL DIRECTIONS  in search of the edge of the enemy's  line of march. Once this was attained  the regiment again formed up and proceeded on its way, highly diverted by  its unique experience, but fully convinced of the utter futility of endeavoring to combat so huge a cloud of  flies ��������� ,  A short time since a Norwegian sailing bark, put into Rio Janeiro for medical aid, after undergoing a most horrible experience. The Captain reported that while lying almost becalmed  some three days' sail off that port the  vessel had gradually drifted into a  large-     .  MASS OF FLOATING SEAWEED,  The   characteristic   features   of   which,  seemed to betoken that it had originally  grown  upon a sea  beach, .whence  it   had  probably been torn away  by a  huge   tidal 'wave or tropical storm.  The moment the vessel's prow touched the floating mass a huge number  of half-starved.flies, which in some in-  toms do not occur until some days after the actual bite, when, the eyes and  nose begin to run as, though in the  throes of an influenza cold. Next the  coat gets rough, the ja-w swells and  thc  animal  GRADUALLY WASTES AWAY,  Its  end   bung  considerably   expedited  should   rainy   weather set in.  Another and still more ancient  scourge is the well known locust, whose  ravages are by no means confined to  ono continent. Indeed, India, Arabia,  Asia Minor aud Egypt have, all suffer-,  ed iu turn, very much in the same way  that our Yankee cousins did during  the seventies, in their far Western  States, in 1874 (lie States of Wyoming, Dakota and Montana alone suffered damage to the amount of ������50,000,-  000, but even this terrible devastation  was outweighed by tho ravages committed by locust swarms in lhe island  of  Cyprus. i  Here, unti/ the comparatively recent  introduction of the system of pit traps,  it really seemed as though the wbolo  vegetation of the island was doomed  to extinction. Happily the plague has  now been more scientifically dealt  with by  the destruction of  THE INSECTS' EGGS.  Some 02 tons of which, representing as  many as- 50,OOJ,OHO,OuU eggs, have been  destroyed in a single season.  Among other destructive flies may  bo mentioned the warble fly, which  lays its eggs in the hides of cows and  bullocks, and, by ruining the skin,  spoiling the quality of the milk, and  often killing the poor animals from  blood poisoning,, is estimated to annually do between ������������0,000,000 and ������7,000,-  C0;1 worth of damage to lhe home cattle trade; the Americun chinch bug,  which in Jubilee year alone destroyed 79,000,000 busbols of corn, 2!),C0t);000  bushels of wheat and 19,000,000 bushels  of oats in tha nine Southern States  bordering the Missouri and Mississippi  and the deadly Colorado beetlo, the  importation ot which, even for museum purposes, is strictly forbidden,  lest it should devastate our own lands  like it has thoso of the state from  which it  takes its name.  GIRLS OF PORTO RICO.  Travellers who come down here are  both amused und surprised at the vast  amount of smoking indulged in by the  native women, says a letter from San  Juan, Porto Rico. Those of high standing socially are not addicted to the  habit, but among the country women  the practice is almost universal. And  the fair ones do not confino themselves  exclusively to cigarettes cither. Big  black cigars in the mouths of really  very pretty young girls are a common  sight in the country districts. Cigarettes are really more a luxury because  tho paper in which they are rolled has  lo be bought, but the all-tobacco cigars  can bo raised and rolled by any ono  willing to take the trouble.  Not long ago the writer, then but  recently arrived, rode into tho country one fine day and stopped at a  native shack on the military road, near  Caguas, to ask for a drink of water.  Four suiiiiug women greeted him at  the door. One of them was perhaps  30 years of age, aud had a baby in  her arms. The other ibreo were not  more, than 15, although they had the  physical development of our girls  much older. They were ail dark of  skin, but with that shining straight  black hair whioh is so ofteu seen in  the mulatto in whom is combined the  Spanish with  the negro.  Having given him water, the Porto  Ricaus invited the stranger into their  home, and then began the customary  linguistic wrestling bout, in which tho  simplest ideas were exchanged, only after the most violent mental, facial, and  digital effort. During the conversation  so called by courtesy���������the woman with  the baby, became so excited .that she  lit a cigar which lay on the table and1  began puff ing at it. furiously to calm  her nerves. The visitor was also sniok- |  ing, aud although somewhat surprised  at his hostess's action, he fell it to be. \  POISOBUft IS A FINE AET,  SILENT AND   HANDY, AS WELL  AS  SAFE AND CERTAIN.

The gentle art of poisoning seems to  travel in cycles, the pages of history  being strewn with periods like the present in which this convenient method  of disposing of one's friends and relatives has become fairly epidemic. The  reason for this, of course, lies in ex-  iimplo and emulation, the narration ol  one successful venture in this line  suggesting a like course to' others until a number of detections, followed  by- a summary punishment, acts as  a deterrent.      l '  In the records of poisoning shine*  forth one John Raguba, of Venice, who  looked at the matteil in a cool business-like light that was almost humorous in a certain grim- fashion. He  calmly offered the famous Venetian  Council of Ten a selection of poison,  and declared himself ready, to remove  any person who they deemed objectionable. He calmly stated his twins,  which for the fiist successful case  were to be a pension of 1,500 ducats a  year. Tho "patriotic offer" was accepted, and ho was told to experiment  on the Emperor Maximilian, John, who  had evidently reduced poisonings to a  fine art, submitted afterward a regular  graduated tariff to tho Council, which  was as follows:  For the great Sultan, 500 ducats.  F'or the King of Spain, 150 dueats,  including the expenses of the journey.  ������X_c.  tho Duke ol\ Milan, 60 ducats.  ,  the Marquis of Mantua, 50 du-  For  For  cats.  For   the  Pope,   100  ducats.  Naturally Kings were a  SHINING MARK,  And John, King oli Castile, owed hit  death lo wearing' a pair of booti  which were supposed to have beem impregnated with poiton by a Turk. Henrj  VI. is said to have succumbed through  wearing poisoned gloves, and Louie  XIV. and Pope Clement! VII. through  the fumes from a pohonous taper.  King John is supposed, to have, been  poisoned by matter extracted from u  living  toad placed in his wassailrbowl.  Poisoning has sometimes been conducted on a very large scale. June 6  is kept as a publio holiday every year  in Malta to commemorate lhe escape  of the people of thai place from poisoning a century and a halt ago. Turkish slaves confessed to a dtsign of  poisoning all the wells and fountains  on the island, and to make the result  surer ouch of the conspirators was to  assassinate a Christian. One hundred  and   twenty-five  were found  guilty.  Arsenic has perhaps been more frequently used lhan other poisons, and  the hjstory of criminology is full of tho  decisive work of this drug. Probably  the most famous case of its use is that  of Mine. Lafarge, who sent her husband a cake, which ihe dear man attl  ���������and he hasn't eaten anything since,  unless they have food in the other  world.  Arsenic was also used in the famous  Maybrick case, wherein Mr. Maybrick  felt ill with a disease which baffled  the skill oi tbe physicians, lira.May-  brick nursed her husband, but when  arsenic was discovered h\ a bottle of  meat juice thai was being administered to the sick man she was replaced  by; two,-trained nurses,, and was not  allowed to feed her husband. Mrs,  Maybrick was seen by   the servants.  TO MACERATE FLY PAPERS,  But this, she said,' wii's to be used as a  cosmetic.

The excess of war and ordinary  expenditures over ordinary income for  eight months in tho States has been  $89,000,000 and the deficit for the year  will be considerably larger, or six or  seven times as large as the English  deficit. '-,!..'  But the deficit in England is due to  the  increase of    normal    expenditure  and  the  decrease   of  normal   revenue.  The  American deficit is due solely- to;  war expenditures.  buckets were brought nn deck, hurriedly filled wilh coals from the cook's  galley, and piled, with damp wood.  Then for six long hours, while, the calm  lasied, the crew wore forced fo smother themselves with wood smoke, in order to escape the attack of their active   little  assailants.

Mrs. Funk, who managed for a long  time the dining room and lodging  departments of the Burtlett hotel,  assumes like duties at the Balmoral  on Monday, in consequence of contemplated changes at the former hotel.

It is probable that future  development may produee a marketable one; but it is time enough to  blow to allure purchasers when the  paying ore has been found.  Yesterday (Monday) the Rev. R.
