Regina, April 25.���������In the legislature  to-day, Mr. Boss, minister of public  works, introduced the budget.. He  Baid' that the Federal government's  subsidy last year was $282,979, but  this year the territory had asked for  an increase, so that the total revenue  Would'bo $535,000, the revenue from  local sources being $49,460. Mr. Ross  said that the North-West's requirements were increasing so rapidly, and'  the Federal grant so slowly, that the  sion that the deal was ns near completion as has been generally supposed.  Mr.'Robertson also said that mining  operators in London did not look very  favorably upon British Columbia as a  medium of investment. In fact the  Klondyke was more frequently enquired after than this provinc?. He  ascribed this view of the province to  the fact that there is a good deal of  English capital invested in B. C. that  so far has prowd unremunerative.  When questioned as to the effect, if  any, the recent eight hour and other  legislation of the present government  had had upon financial circles iu London, Mr. Robertson declined at this  juncture, to speak for publication.  Slocan City Brevities.  E. McFaden, for several years in the  Slocan country, started a few days ago  for   the   Spokane  Falls   and   Buffalo  Bachelor Girls' Ball.  Not daunted by the suecess of the  Bachelors' ball last week, the bachelor  girls of the city assembled their fo.-ces  a lew evenings after at the Good-  enough and laid plans for a dance under their management. The plans  materialized���������true to popuJar theory,  what ladies undertake they invariably  curry through���������culminnting in a decidedly pleasant" ond successful issue  on Thursday evening in Virginia hull.  The hall was prettily decorated wilh  flags, bunting and festoons ol colored  tifcsue paper, and with the soft tints  ot tlie shaded lights, the house plants  and other pi.rlor adornments made the  hall very cosy and attractive. Card  andBinokhig rooms were fitted up in  the other chambers for the convenience ol those not dancing and devotees of the weed. The refreshments,  too, were evidently given special at  u-ntion  Hazlew  Hump country  ,-i      i    u      .1-    .     -x       i    The Arlington mine expects to go to,..      ,        ... ... ���������   -  time was at hand when the territory J work ftJ g00n ^ tne trilil is in conditio,,   the charming hostesses oi the evening.  must consider its financial position.  if) naf,k miri,,lir.H. |lniuc.,in  all the appointments and  the thoruugh work oi the several com  ing nor sleighing. Until the mill has  been run a month at its enpacity, it is  n it likely that the mine management  will let the public know anything as  to actual results ; but as the expenditures have all been made' on practical  lines, and the expenses of operation  kept at the minimum, it is not likely  the results will have a tendency to  drive capital away from the Ymir district.'  The Bullion group will shortly make  a move in the way of development, en-,  quiries having been made from Brantford, Ont., as to whether the. trail is  available or not. The president of the  company is expected out from Paris  ere long.  The New Brunswick Consolidated,  owning tne Florence, Deadwood and  Ncw-Brunswick claims up Wild Horse,  have disposed of nearly, all their  pooled shares, thus leaving all their  treasury stock intact. The proceeds  furnish ample funds tc run the tunnel  in at least 400 feet and continue-other  development   work.

They could not enter confederation on  the 'same' basis as had "Manitoba, because calculated on such a basis they  would be no better off than they were  to-day.    If  they   proceeded on   that  basis they wculd have  to borrow in  less than five years, ahd it Was not the  policy of the government to borrow,  but to depend purely on the resources  of the country.   When the North-West  Territories   entered  Confederation   it  would want it's lands, and some compensation for the lands that had been  given to railways.   The Territories he  considered were entitled to an amount  equal to ������1,000,000 a year on  the capitalized values of lands   taken   away  from. them.   In making tenns for entering   confederation   the  Territories  would insist upon  their rights in this  respect, and that was  the question for  the assembly to consider, and for the  people to discuss.  -Another Smelter for Boundary Countiy.  J. P. Graves, who owns a large int  erest.inthe Knob Hill, Old Ironsides  and seventy-five other properties in  the Boundary Creek .conn try, and who  has been in Montreal on business, returned recently, and is looking over  the Boundary country for a location  on -which to erect a smelter for his  Company. He is still undecided as to  as to the location of the smelter, but  expects to settle the matter' while in  the Boundary on this trip. The concern is called the Granbv Mining &  Smelting Co., and is backed by some  of the strongest capitalists in Eastern  Canada. It is proposed to erect reduction works having a" capacity of 400  tons of ore daily, costing $150,000, with  provision for doubling the plant at  comparatively email cost.  to pack supplies.  Covington and McGuirr, contractors  ������n the Joker group, at the head of  Coffee creek, have ceased work for the  ���������pr������.sent on account of the difficulty of  transporting supplies. Mineral very  satisfactory. The manngers expect to  build a wagon road from Kaslo rivi-r to  Camp Mansfield as soon as weather  will permit.  Fred J. Smyth, editor of the Moyie  City Leader, and om> of the promising  young journalists of the west, was here  this week to look over his mining  claims. He says that Slocan City is  ���������be model townsite of the mountainous districts.  J. Beaticheson, J. Tatteraall and  others are grouping a lot of mineral  claims at the head of the first north  fork of Lemon creek, as it has frequently been stated by capitalists that  onu or two prospects are not sufficient  to risk development on. The Alberta  and other valuable claims are in the  group.  ., as choice delicacies, including stock ������m be  put on the markctr some  '?"l.lCu.^llT'- W,e5u������������������se*le(\ by   time   this   coming  summer,   but  at  greatly advanced prices.

There is an unwonted amount of activity around the Hall Mines smelter  this w.eek. . Several days ago the long  expected run upon galena ores was  commenced in the 100-ton blast furnace, the company using a mixture of  Silver King ores with the purchased  ores, and on Saturday the 250 ton furnace was blown in on high-grade copper  ore from the King. With ��������� both blast  furnaces running, the company will  ' make' a great record for the ensuing  month.  Ottawa, April 25.���������The estimates for  1899-1900, were presented to parliament last night. They show a proposed increase iri ordinary expenditure  of $563,485/as compared with the previous fiscal year. The figures are $41,-  528,298, as against $40,964,813, for 1898-  99. There is] however, a decrease of  $2,177,421 on capital expenditure, making a net decrease in ordinary capital  expenditure of $1,613,937. The total  for ordinary capital.is $46,286,550, as  compared with $47,900,48g, for 1898-99.  There is $25,000 voted for the improvements in the narrows between the  Upper and Lower Arrow lakes, and $22-  000 for the Vancouver drill hall.  ALASKAN BOUNDARY QUESTION.  The, Modus Vivendi Stated Now to Be  Quite Problematical.  C. P..R. Stocks Rising.  Montreal, April 25.���������The stock market was greatly excited this morning  over the.rapid advance in Canadian  Pacific stock, and 5,000 shares changed  hands in two hours, 93} being the  highest price paid here, while New  York bought at 93$, and London went  up to 96. This is the highest priee  ever reached by Canadian Pacifies, and  wagers were'made here that the stock  would be at par by Queen's birthday,  and $1.10 a month later.  Back From the Old Country.  Mr. J. Roderick Robertson, general  manager of the London and B.C.;Gold-  fields Company returned on Saturday  from a visit to London. Questioned  with regard to the sale of the Enterprise mine to his company, Mr. Robertson replied:  "Nothing has been signed and no  money has been paid so the deal cannot be said to be through. All I can  aay is that negotiations are still pending."  His manner did not give the impreu-  An unexpected delay has occurred  in the negotiations of the Boundary  Commission in session at Washington,  toward the Alaskan boundary modus  vivendi which makes the future of the  modus vivendi quite problematical.  Extended1 conferences on the subject  held a few days, previous resulted far  from .encouraging.' The principal difficulty arises lrbm. dealing with Ottawa as well as. London, this dual  negotiation causing great delay and  complications. . At the outset the  United States, proposed a moduB vivendi with a temporary line along certain peaks, The British Ambassador  forwarded this to London and Ottawa.  The Canadian officials have now proposed changes in the line and after  considerable delay the authorities in  London approved the changes proposed  by Canada.  It is not stated what the respective  lines are, but" they are sufficiently far  apart to make it quite unlikely that  any immediate agreement can be  reached eyen of a temporary nature to  the boundary.  The Rev. S-inford went to Rossland  Tuesday to attend district meeting.  Mr. Green, M.P.P., and solicitor Mc-  Ann, of Kaslo, >vere in the city on  Wednesday.  Mrs. Grant, of Nelson, who spent  a few weeks in the city renewing old  acquaintances,. returned home Monday, accompanied by ' Miss Rene  Crawford.  Mrs. Hammond and Miss Laura  Hammond, who spent the winter in  Denver, Colo., arrived in the city this  week to join the other members of the  family here,  Dr. and Mrs. Young -leave on Monday for Vancouver. They cai'vy; with  them'the best wishes of,the 'citizens  for a happy and prosperous life in  their fnture hohie.  Mrs. Grimmett, mother of Messrs.  M. L. and G. W. Grimmett, who has  been visiting-in Sandon the major part  of the winter, felt for Itegina on Tuesday where she will visit with-auother  son before returning to her home in  Minnesota. Mr. M. L. went with her  to Revelstoke returning the next day.  Mr. Krakenberg, of Hibbing, <Min-  nesota, son-in-law of Mr. Warner, arrived in the city Sunday, his wife and  family having nreceded him some  weeks. Mr. Krakenberg is a practical  cigar maker and is likely to open up a  manufactory in this city, and lor which  there is ample room. The gentleman  will also be an addition to our musical  circles.  There will be three murder cases be-  foie Mr. Justice Irving at the Nelson  assizes.   It is likely  that another attempt will be made to convict Antonio  Bruno, who has already had two juries  disagree as  to his guilt of the murder  of an Italian on the grade of the Crow's  Nest railway.  'The Fort Steele murder  case in which John Phillips is charged  with the murder of a teamster,  which  went over  from the last assize,  will  come on again.    Then there   is   the  recent Cranbrook murder, in which an  Italian named Paisti is charged with  murder  and   another Italian   named  Merscisco   with   being   an   accessory  after  the fact.    Tlie  other  criminal  cases aro W. D. Brewster, of Trail, for  theft; Mary  Mallette, for keeping   a  gaming house';   A. D.  McGinty,   the  Sandon man who started in to run the  Chinese   out of  the  Slocan;   Joseph  Heneger, of Rossland, for incest; Barrett,   for conspiracy to defraud,   and  Davies lor theft.

V ���������  New"'"York, April 25.���������The definite  statement was made to-day that H. H.  Rogers, of the Standard Oil Company,  acting for a syndicate, had obtained  control of ninny of the heaviest producing copper mines in the United  States, including those principally of  Montana and the Lake Superior district. Among them are the Anaconda,  Isle Royal and Copper King. The  deal, however, is yet incomplete, and  on that account those most interested  were averse to giving out information.  The arrangements for carrying the  deal through have been placed in the  hands of Mr. Rogers.  Payne Mining  Company of B.

Four bottles made ray skin  clear and free from eruption and cured  me completely."  lining at Ymir.  ������������������' , TOBACCO HEART.  Mr. W. J. Judson, Curtis St., St.  Thomas, Ont., says: "I had trouble  with my heart for two years, caused  by excessive use of tobacco. I used  one box of Milburhs' Heart and Nerve  Pills and have not suffered from palpitation since." \  ' : '   ��������� \  The mill on the Ymir mine is now  running at its full capacity, and forty  stamps are dropping the full twenty-  four hours. The road from the mill to  the railway at Ymir is in such a condition that the; concentrates are not  being shipped, and several carloads;  have accumulated. On the lower part  of the road a wagon could be used, but  Notice is hereby given that a general meeting of the Payne Mining  Company of British Columbia, Limited, will be held at the offices of the  Company in Sandon, B.C., on Monday,  the 29th day of May, 1899, at 12 o'clock  noon for the purpose of disposing of  the whole, or any portion, of the assets, rights, privileges and fr nchises  of the said Company, and for the transaction of such other business as may  be lawfully brought before the meeting.  Dated at Sandon, 22nd of April A.D.  1899.      ���������  F. E. SARGEANT,  Secretary. .  The Luck Jim is being put in shape  again after a long rest. The zinc in it  is considered very valuable.  An English company have bonded  20 Toad mountain properties, and will  commence"on them at once.  The Antoine, at McGuigan, is putting on a large force of men, and will  startup in good shnpe in a few days.  They have struck a fine body of ore  at the Whitewater Deep, which will  enliven things in the town considerably.  Mr. Warner reported to us last evening another rich strike on the Madison  being 10 inches of clean ore, running  about 500 in silver.  We received report "of Three Forks  ore shipments for last week top late  for publication, which were to'ALpril'  21: Queen Bess, 80 tons.  Thomas Ardiel, who has the'eontract  for driving a 100-foot tunnel on the J.  I. C. claim, one of the Emily Edith  group, has completed half of the contract. So far the tunnel has been a  cross-cut, but it is expected that the  ledge will be tapped in a few feet  further.  Mr. P. J. Hickey has returned from  his mine, the Fontenay, in Camp Mc-  Kinney. He says the property is a  very large one- and is looking well  under development. - In due course  they will erect a mill on the property  for the treatment of the ore, it being a  free milling proposition.  The Williard claim, one of the oldest  locations made on the Silverton side  of the Alpha Mountain, is at last being  systematically developed and it looks  now 'as if it would be numbered  amongst Silverton's shipping mines in  the near future. Th ��������� Williard adjoins  the J. I. C, one of the ��������������������������� Emily Edith  group, and is owned by Messrs. Perk->  ins, Bragdon aad Williard,  A strike of considerable consequence  has recently been made on the Black'  Prince,   owned by   Messrs. Shombergr  Murphy and Gomerly, the original locators of the Two Friends mine.   The  Black Prince adjoins this well knowa"  property.     On   the   claim   a   75-foot  crosscut has been run,  which tapped  the ledge at a depth of 75 feet.   At  this point an ore body three feet wide  has been encountered.   This ore is   a  high-grade  galena,   carrying a  good  percentage of copper  and .275 oz. in  silver.  The sale of  the Enterprise, the' big ���������  Ten Mile property, means much to the  Slocan' Lake towns,   as the   property  will doubtless  be' worked   to its full  capacity.   It has been developed sufficiently to allow of the working of at ���������  least . 150 miners,   whose trade alone  will be a big item t������ the surrounding  towns.      Slocan   City and  Silverton,  being the two nearest towns, will naturally be the two most benefited.   New  Denver will lose the head office of the'  mine,  these being moved to   Nelson,  but this loss will be.more, than com-   '  pensated for by the trade of the Enters-  prise miners,  who   will   occasionally  wander as far as the Windy City.

With lace  curtains at Iho windows, "fuzzy" paper on the walls and "fuzzy" carpet  on the floors, about everything possible  , bas been done to encourage dirt.  When to these aro added a delotrlous  crumbling paint ' on t the wood-work,  tho way not to do it is perfectly illustrated.   ,  Windows ot sleeping nxims would  be 'U'Otocled preferably with fixed  blinds, but lacking- these, nothing but  ireod, twsily removable shades onspiing  rollers should be tolerated. Wall  paper snould be eschewed and the wall  should be painted in some light, cheerful tint, with a paint containing no  c'~polsohoiis materials. For this use the  only fit pigment is zinc-white, the tints  being obtained by adding ultramarine  tor blue tones,' earth colors for yellow,  brown and rod lints., lamp black for  the grays, and combinations of these  pigments for  tho other desired tints.  The wood-work, unless of light colored wood finished in tho natural state  end varnished, should be painted exclusively with the sumi. pigments,  varnish being added l������ an enamel effect is desired. \ The floor,, if too cold  or too open for filling and "waxing,"  . or varnishing, should, be smoothed off,  and after puttying all seams, cracks,  and nail-holes, should be painted with  a good oil paint containing no load;  zinc-white, or a combination based on  zinc-white, colored with iron oxides or  ������.irlh colors ochre, sienna, umbers,  metallic brown, eto., being used exclusively ������s pigments. Over this  should be laid a removable rug, which  can be taken up, aired and shaken at  frequent intervals, the floor being well  wiped with a wet cloth while the rug  is up. The painted walls should also  be washed at the periodical '" olean-  ing"  times.  AVall paper, > curtains, carpets and  deleterious paints are probably responsible, either directly or indirectly,  for tho introduction aud propagation  of many ailmonLs, especially in children. White lead, which is among the  least durable of pigments, is, like  all load compounds, au active poison,  and it is notable among paints for its  tendency to crumblel oLf the painted  .surface in the form of dust. , Furthermore, as it blackens in the presence of  gases   always   found in   dwelling  and put on  a dish1, garnishing with   a  pint of hot Milanaise rice, made as follows: Chop fine! a good-sized onion and  fry in butter until   a     golden   color;  then add  a cupful of rice and half a  dozen minced mushrooms; stir for two  minutes and add one quart of boiling  broth; stir   lightly once, cook 15 minutes and add more broth at intervals  as   needed..

Zinc-white, on the other  hand is absolutely non-poisonous, has  a brilliant clear white color, which  produ.es remarkably pure and brilliant  lints with other colors, and is the  moat permanent of pigments, both as  regards color and material.

A pretty way to treat the floors of  bedrooms in summer home is to enamel  them in the colors used; on metal bedsteads. Moss-green shingle stain, the  copper color that is used for roofs, and  DuU-h blue are particularly desirable.  Whatever color is chosen let the' wall  covering match tho; floor and, have the  woodwork white. In a room treated  after this manner a waistcoting of  denim, or matting is very apropos, and  the dull shades mentioned -above., for  floor staiu harmonize nicely with the  uew .spring wall papers, mattings and  denims. - "  Bathe face and  bauds of a  lastly tho whites, bake~slowly at first  iu covered dish1 for an hour; remove  cover and brown fino; half this quantity will dol for four, or five' persons.

This ia not so  <jasy ns it seeons, for the imitation of  curios has been brought to an art of  itself. There are certain factories in  Euro-po in which all kinds of works of  art that are likely to interest the collector ore manufactured. The stamping of China with old marks,- the treating of arms aud armor with acids to  make them look anoient, tho staining  of carved ivories with oil to make them  yellow, and their subjection 10 heat to  make them crack, are all so cleverely  done as often to deceive the expert.  The man who is engaged to drill holes  in imitation of worm'holes iu pieces of -j  furniture is almost an artist;. and in i  Hungary   there  - - ���������  An interesting little monograph' en-  tilled, "The Kiss and its History,"  some of the tid-bits of which might interest devotees the oaculalory art, has  ju3t been issued. The author of. this  pleasant little treatise is a learned  German savant, a Doctor .of Philosophy, by the name of Prof. Chr. Nyrop.  His little volume betrays a very  careful study of the subject, and one  would almost be led to believo that the  results od a considerable experience  wore embodied in this very readable  little book.  Prof. Nyrop begins his volume with a  paragraph byway of preface.   In   this  ho claims, that in presenting his study  of tho history of tho kiss to the public,  it is his duty to warm every one of the  danger   that    lies    merely in   reading  about kissing.  Having  thus drolly introduced his subject, his conscience is  at ease, and he proceeds oheerfully to  a consideration of the matter in hund.  '; Dr. Nyrop thinks   that it may seem  to be a very ��������� easy   task to investigate  the nature of a    kiss.        Every    child  knew what a kiss was. We were greeted with   kisses at'   our   entrance into  tho world, and we  wero actually pursued by them   throughout life.   This is  what   the author may have experienced.   Prof. Nyrop, at any rate, observes  that to correctly define a kiss is more  difficult   than   most of   us think.     He  would   lay     down ono     fundamental  axiom, -..that a kiss must be   felt   to be  understood,   and * that   it is perfeotly  vain  to try   to find out what it is.  Paul Verlaine declares a kiss to bo  "tho fiery uccompanlment on the keyboard of tho teeth to the sweet songs  sung by lovo in the burning hearts."  This definition, original and pretty,  held good only with' regard to genuine  love kisses, and had nothing lo say of  the external phase of  the kiss.  Iu the dictionary of the Scientific  Association, a kiss is doc.ared to bo "the  pressure of the mouth on a body."  ihis definition is palpably inadequate,  and inleiicitous. The mouth was- the  only lactor mentioned as having any-  Lhmg to do in the process. Or course,  no one would deny tho important part  played by the mouth in an exercise ot  this kind but how does the mouth produce a kiss.  It is produced, writes the Gorman,  by a kind or sucking muscular movement oi the lips, .accompanied by a  weaic or strong bound, according to the  fervour of tho kisser. In a phonetic  sense, then, ihe kiss may be termed  an inspirational lip movement. The  English phonologists, therefore, call it.  lip click.  j his muscle movement, however, is  Mi aufiioienc for the production of a  kiss. Ii only becomes such, when used  to expiess an emotion, .and then only  when the lips actually loucb a living  being or a thing.  Sjys this 'authority:  "iho sound th.it accompanies" tho  kiss has been thoroughly investigated  by an Austrian .'.cientist by ihe name  or W. ven Kempe.en in his l eniark'.ible  work. " i he Mechanism of the Hu-  min Language.-;.'' He divides the  kisf.es phonetically into tin oq kinds or  classes. First, he treats ot the proper kiss, which hei describes as "a  triendly and clear ringing hea.'t kiss."  Next he takes up the moie discretional kisses, which are of a weaker  ioimd; and, finally, ho speaks contemptuously ot the third kind, characterized as "a nauseating  smack."  Johannes Jorgensen, says very poeti-  aclly in his "Sternniuge; ' that, "Tlie  waves touching the stones on the  shore sound like long kisses."  Another description of the process by  the same author is not so esthetic. He  says: "As it one single spell, and  th ough the whole evening, was heard  a sound similar to thoj one when some  one goes around with a fly-smasher���������  an'd that was the kissing of those  lovers."  A very suggestive comparison found  in Iho German and also used by Mark  Twain says that, "The kiss sounded as  when a cow lifts her hind ' leg out of a  swamp."  As the  same taste seems to prevail among the  women of, Northern Europe. In Germany tho straightforward declaration  is made that a kiss without! a beard is  of. very littlo account. The girls of  Holland hold the same viow when  they say that "a kiss without a beard  is like an egg without salt." The girls  in tho Danish province of Jutland hold  that a kiss should not only have the  right ring about it, but must also have  a certain agreeable taste; it must bo  at onee powerful and delicious.  "When we see our stage beauties throwing so deftly their' hand  kisses to tho audience, wo may not  think that the custom was a common  one in biblical times. In tho thirty-  first chapter ot the Book of Job lie  praises himself for his godliness, and  says: "If I behold tha sun when it  shined, or the moon walking in brightness; und my heart hath been secretly  enticed, or my mouth hath kissed my  hand."  How He Got Her.  CURIOUS PHENOMENON.  Stream or Kw-lu Snld to ���������;���������' Movliii? Down  ii Steep Valley Iu IihIIii.  Captain Roberts, of the British ariny,  writes to Sir Martin Conway, the explorer of the Himalayas, of a curious  phenomenon ho    has   seen among the  mountains of the extreme northeastern  part of India, not far from tho Upper  Indus.     There is a very narrow valley  or nulla h among these mountains, tho  head of which is about 12,000 feet and  tho foot about 5,000 feet above the sea  level.   Tho earth on tho floor of this  nullah is moving down toward tho foot  of the valley at the rate of about 600  feet a year.    This eslinfate of the rate  of movement is .made from the position,  of trees that are growing on the surface, and every year are nearer    the  foot of the valley.     The surface of'tho  moving mass fills   the  bottom of tho  nullah, and is about COO feot wide. As  far as he is ablo to ascertain there is  no ice or snow above or within the moving mass.   t The surface is undulating  and looks a mountain-covered glacier,  except that the grass is growing upon  it.       The   neighboring   villagers have  made a few cultivation terraces upon  the   moving mass.   In depressions on  both sides of it tho slrea'rna flow between the mass and the hillsides.  The natives say there is nothing new  about the phenomenon, that tho masa  is always in very gradual motion, and  though they til] a part of the surface  they have given up attempts to build  houses on it because they always tum1-  ble down.  Though this information is made  public without comment by so high  an authority us Sir Martin Conway,  the editor of Nature, in which it appears, seems inclined to regard it as  a_ fish story and disclaims responsibility for it. If the information is correct it would seem' that the slope of  the iwk underlying lhe alluvial mass  is sufficiently steep to .overcome tho"  friction to a considerable extent, permitting a slow movement of the earth  down the valley, as glaciers move to  lower levels. ,  This phenomenon appears to be midway between the landslides that are  frequent in mountain regions when  the lower part of the earth mass becomes saturated wilh water, making  the rock slope on which it rests slippery, nnd the very thick, black mud  avalanches that Sir Martin Conway and  other explorers havo described as rushing down tho steep nullahs in the Himalayas at tho rate of several miles an  hour.

A bootblacking machine has lately  been patented, the model of which  shows a suitable framework, a rest  for the foot, a reservoir to contain liquid blacking, and brushes that automatically apply it to tho boot. The  machine can be worked by electricity,  or with a spring, or on the penny-in-  the-slot principle.  feelings expressed by all  these more or less sonorous sounds are  of many .kinds, as, for instance,, glowing love and faithful friendship, jubilant joy and deep grief, .there must;  in consequence, be many kinds .of  ! kisses. '    \c -  ,'I he rabbis recognized only, three  kinds: The meeting or salutatory kiss  the farewell kiss, and the reverential  kiss. Tho Romans alsoj'had three, but  their classification was different froin  that of the Hebrews. .They recognized  the friendship kiss,', the affectionate  kiss and the love kiss. Nyrop thinks  these classifications inadequate, however, and makes , the division as follows: The love kiss, t-na affectionate  kiss, the peace kiss, the reverential kiss  and the friendship kiss.. Most of our  readers will think this classification  long drawn out and extremely artificial. It is not nearly so elaborate, however, as the list made up by a modern  French author, who knows no less than  twenty different  kinds of kisses.  It will surprise the reader to find  that the stolid, beer drinking German  knows many more. varieties. In the  dictionaries of that language, are found  thirty, independent harries for, kisses.  This may be owing to (ihe I borough-  go'ng, methodical and exhaustive manner in which (he German always treats,  his subject. He kisses in a sort of supplementary way,' and completes a series ot kisses by "noch ein mal," which  being interpreted means once more.  As regards what'a woman expects in  a man's kiss, Dr. Nyrop refers to lhe  Eoumanian song, which says thaj. she  always prefers a man with n bearil.

She could in a case of  emergency put 100,000 troops in the  field in two days, with 100,000 more,  in reserve, besides 270,000 m'ilitia. The  Swiss have been peculiarly strong  fighters sinoo' the dawn of European  history, ruining all invaders from the  Romans to the French by their never-  say-die modo of warfare. Almost every man in the present Swiss army is  a marksman, as shooting societies aro  substantially encouraged by tlie Government. .��������� ��������� The-,.' equipniont is most  simple, as each man keeps his rifle and  accoutrements at home.

The system1, if  limited, is by far the most efficient'in  the -world. " ���������!'. -.. - >.  Lawrence Lanigan thought that Belle  Hastings lookedextraordinarily pretty  when he helpeil her into the carriage  th'it night. "Always thinks so," Dick  Soldene would have .said, but Dick had  left for New York that afternoon, and  so was not present to make remarks.  Down the long, smootli' country road  the carriage sped, past farmhouses and  fields and meadows, Belle talking gaily  all (he while, without over seeming to  notice lhit her lover was nearing  "dangerous ground." She did notice,  however, that, as they'passed a group  of huge elms which shaded the road,  her companion whistled, and���������was that  an answering whistle from (h������< fields ?  She looked at him.���������  "Some one started a rumor that I  was about to be married,'' he was saying.  Belle evinced no interest.  "But there was no truth in it," he  concluded, lamely, as he turnsd horses  and carriage in tho opposite direction.  "1 would like to see you piopose to  someone. You haven't the courage,"  and she laughed lightly.  "Was it a hint," he wondered, "If  so, now was the time, and���������there were  the elms���������and, hang that Dick Soldene,  anyway. Ho might have won -Belle  Hastings without any plot at all."  "Hands up I"  A--masked man sprang from the shadow of (he trees and covered the two  with his revolver. Belle uttered ������.'  little, frightened 6creum as ha roughly seized her.  '"Stay heie, darling���������" and leaping  from tho carriage, Lanigan boldly  grappled with (he robber. A brief  struggle in the roadway���������the sound of  a couple of pistol shots iu quick succession���������and the highwayman took to  his heels and soon disappeared in a  neighboring cornfield.  "Did he hurt  you  Belle?" inquired  Lanigan wilh affeotionate tenderness.  "I lost my glove, and���������oh I you are  wounded I"  "Only a scratch."  "Let me lio it up for you, you dear,  brave boy."  And Lawrence Lanigan, feeling very  much ashamed, submitted to the opera- ���������  tion in silenoe.  FRANCE'S USE OF TOBACCO.  It was recently estimated by M. Le-  claix; the statistician, :that in Franco  there are about-6,000,000 smokers, .and  that out of every 15 smokers 8 smoke  the pipe, 5 the cigar, and 2 the oigar-  ette. The;total consumption of cigarettes in France during 1898 was 29-1  milliards, or 807,000,fiOO a'day, 3,700,000  an hour, 62,000 a minute, and about 1,-  i!00 a . second.

When Miss Hastings called the next  morning, Lanigan carried his arm ostentatiously iu a sling, and answered  her queries wilh the air and manner  of a wounded hero.  "A mere nothing, but darling; do  you remember what I said 1'iat  night?" '    '  "What." blushing.  "I���������er���������will you���������er���������be my wife?''

Tlie   more   that   that     eight-hour  amendment   is   considered, the more  there appears to be mysterious about  it.   The government says it  was not  a government measure,   but   that   itlf.,,  was ''ntroduced by Mr. Martin of Ross-'  land, who represents a mining constituency.   They considered it a disirable  measure.    This does not ..tally, well  with what Wilkes,   representing   the  mining element of Rossland, said at  Victoria the other day;   He said Mr.  Hume promised1 it to  the miners   in  his bye-election.   If he promised it if  men to stand in its present form shut-1 yet we cannot get u government oflieer. |  ling out the right to contract, and cur-   All members and ..spirants cmnc here  tailing the liberty of  the subject by J for votes, and that i������ ill.

The go\  eminent has no   power, however,   to  modify the Act���������it'inust either be en  forced   in its   entirety or not at all  The  probabilities  are  they will give  the owners a short notice, after which  tlie enforcement will follow,  and then  come   serious   and   regretable   conse-  enees.  .'igo Mr. J3i.stock  was here,   tlie matter I  w.is.brought   to his attention, nnd that |  is the end of it.   Tho place "is  being  robbed ol  its rights   in many substantial respects, and then- appears Id be  no cure for it.  Corbin ban withdrawn bis application at Ottawa for a charter for a railway into the Kettle River country. It  is hard to see what end could be served  bv such a short line of road,  Mr. Wilkes, representing the miners  of Ross and, is n������w in Victoria urging  the government to enforce the eight-  hour   law.     There would be  nothing  SEVERE DIARRI-1CEA.

Attorney-General Martin wanted  to break the record for Bill passing'-in  the    House,   and   consequently    the  nature of the Bills  was considered ini  material.   It is an absolute certainty  that the father of the measure, Ross- ...  land Martin, never intended that there of fche division, and now the purchased  should be a penalty for a mutual are Poking for the purchase money,  agreement between employer and em- rlic liUV mnkes it a crime for a oandi  ployee for more than eight hours work cIftte .t0 P^aso votes with cash or  a day; and still there is one simply be- P������>���������<"������ ol consideration, and if a  cause the position of the amendment  P^m-ise such as Mr. Hume is credited  was looking for tfieir votes in that con-  tost. This gives a clue to those who  are looking for an explanation why  the Hon. gentleman was elected at the  time by so large a majority. He  bribed and bought the industrial vote  . -      ~..v      W.X.1.11U Ixltjlll/  to the :97 Act was never once thought  of when the Bill was going throtagh.  To help themselves out of the mud-  hole of their own creation, they now  propose to commit another blunder in  leaving tlie operation or inoperation  of, the law in the hands of the repre  sentatives of the Kootenay. Who ever  before heard of the like of this���������the  passing of an absolute act, and leaving  with making does not hold him liable  for the consequences of bribery, it certainly ought, to. The intention of an  election law is the naniingbf penalties  that prevent the influencing of votes.  It is, therefore, a clear case that Mr.  Hume's alleged pledges were, at least,  calculated to purchase and that they  fully met the calculation.

As we have told our readers before,  these penalties were in the 1S97 Act,  , and intended to apply where owners  'left mines unsafe for workmen, and  where workmen intentionally v:"'.' iced  contracts. As, however, tho eight-  bour amendments were rushed through  without considering their relation to  the 1897 Act, penalties become applicable where the eignt-hours clause is  violated,   which  no   sane   legislature  with profit.   It does not at all follow  that any one of these   organizations  should  turn out to be antagonistic to  another���������they  have all their distinct  fields of usefulness and may   occupy  them without in any respect encroaching on the rights of others.   No doubt  the lead'duty will be one of the most  important subjects that will be, from  time to time, handled by the association.   As.the U.S. smelters must, for a  long   time at least,' do most   of  the  smelting of this  country, and  as.the  markets across the line must also for  a long time remain the markets   for  our surplus, the matter of occupying  _  ..W...V, w������*        U..Xf//VXO, U1113        illtLtltlOr    I  would ever intend they should be after them to advantage is of serious rao-  aecond consideration.'

"Without the slightest, hesitation he  went .straight to the bookcase, took out  come books and produced tho bottlo.  "We tried him a score of times, ond he  never failed to do the triok. It was an extraordinary exhibition.  "Tho Hindoo loft boforo I did, but.in a  few minutes ho returned and said ho had  forgotton his glovos.

This is what she wrote :  "Burdock Blood Bitters cured me of a  bad attack of Salt Rheum three years ago.  It was so severe that my finger nails came  off.

Unhealthy State of the Town���������"Soapy"  Smith's Gang.  J. H. Strickland, brother of Captain  Strickland of tho mounted police is in  Victoria, on his way from Dawson to  the east. Mr. Strickland says that.  "Soapy" Smith's gang who were run  out of Skagvray many months ago,  have invested Dawson, but are not  making any open demonstration.  Shortly before he left Dawson they  disappeared from the city, and there  was a suspicion that they had gone  out to waylay solitary miners coming  in with gold.  .Colonel Steele in command of the  police at Dawson therefore issued a  proclamation, stating that convoys  would be sent to each of the creeks  and would take the miners' gold giving receipts therefor, and bring it into  the city. He also warned miners  against attempting to bring in their  dust without protection of convoys.  Mr. Strickland says the unhealthy  state of affairs in Dawson last spring  seems likely to be repeated in a much  more aggravated formthis year, owing  to the larger population and the accumulation of offensive matter from  several" years' occup.incy of the town-  site. Unless vigorous measures are  taken immediately upon the opening  of spring to drain the city and to at  ance remove the.garbage, a malignant  outbreak of fever is probable..  He says the presence of a military  force is altogether uncalled for, police  being all that is needed.  The royalty he considers excessive,  and the reservation of alternative  claims for the government a mistake,  making as it does, the difficulties of  the prospectors even greater than they  naturally are.

It is altogether admirable  when a ma:i, by dint   of  sheer  will,   wrings  a  fortune   from   niggardly  circumstances.      The  world    is   full  of  instances  where    men  have done this,  but    never    in  history was this  accomplished  , by a weak and  \ \lL unhealthy man.  ' s-~><2? Ill-health not  only weakens  every physical*  function but every mental faculty and every  moral quality.  If a'nian will  stop and reason  for a moment,  he    does    not  have to be a physician to understand the  causes of impure blood, or its far-reaching  effects.    When a man's digestion is disordered, his liver sluggish, his bowels inactive, the blood is deprived of the proper  food elements, and���������the sluggish liver and  bowels supply in their place, the  foulest  of poisons.    The blood is the life-stream.  When it is full of foul poisons, it carries  and deposits them in every organ and tissue of the body.    Bone, sinew, muscle, and  flesh-tissue, the brain cells and the nerve  fibres are all fed upon bad, poisonous food.  Serious ill-health is bound to result.   The.  man is weakened in every fiber of his body.  He is weakened  physically, mentally and  morally.   He suffers from sick headache,  distress in stomach after meals, giddiness  and drowsiness, loss of appetite and sleep,  bad taste in the mouth, shakiness in the'  morning, and dullness throughout the day,  and lassitude and an indisposition to work.  Sooner or later these  conditions develop  consumption, nervous prostration, malaria,  rheumatism, or some blood or skin disease.  Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery is  the best of all known medicines for ambitious, hard-working men and women.   It is  the great blood-maker and  flesh-builder.  It makes the appetite keen and hearty, and  the digestion and assimilation perfect, the  liver.active, the blood pure and rich, the  nerves steady, the body vigorous and  the  brain alert.   Where there is also constipation Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets should be  used.    Both of these great medicines are  for sale by all medicine dealers.  From thoso terrible side  aebos, back aches, headaches and tho thousand and  one other ills which make  life full of misory.  Most of theso troublos are  due to impure, imperfectly  filtered, blood���������the Kidneys  are not acting right and in  consequence the system is  being poisoned with impurities.  'S KIDNEY PILLS  are   daily proving tbemsolves woman's  greatost friend and benefactor.  Here is an instance:  Mrs. Harry Fleming, St. Mary's, N.B.,  says: "The uso of Doau's Kidney Pills  restored me to complete health. The  first symptoms I noticed in my case wore  severe pains in the small of my back  and around the loins, together with  general weakness and loss of appetite.  I gradually became worse, until,  hearing ot Doan's Kidney Pills, I got a  box from our druggist.  I am pleased to testify to their effectiveness :in correcting the troubles from  which I suffered.

"The moment for which I hud waited  fco  long  had  at last como.   1  had' my  enemies   within   my power.   Together  thoy    could    protect   each   olJier,   hut  singly thoy wore at my mercy.   I ilid  not act. however, with undue piecipila-  tion.   ������\ly plans  were already  formed.  There is no satisfaction in   vengeance  unless the offender has timo lo realize  who  it  is  that strikes  him,  and   why  letribution had come upon him.   i had  my plans arranged by which I should  havo   the   opportunity- of  making   the  man who had wronged me understand  thai   his  old  sin  had  found  him  out.  11   chanced   that   some   days   before   a  gentleman  who  had   been  emj.iged  in  looking ovor some houses in tbe Brix-  l on Road had dropped the key ot ono  ol them in my carriage.    It wad claimed   that   same  evening  an������l   returned;  but   in     the   interval    I  had tnkeri  a  molding of it, and had a duplicate constructed.     J3y   means    of   this I   had  access  to    ut'least, one    spot  in  this  great   city   whore   I   could   roly   upon  being free from interruption.   JIow to  get    Drebber  to    that house was the  difficult problem  which I had now to  solve.  "He walked ,down tho road and went  Into one or two liquor shops, staying  for nearly half an hour in' lhe last  nf them. When he came out he staggered im his walk, aud was evidently  petty well on. ffhere was a bansom  just in front of me and he hailed it.  I followed it so close that the nose of  my horse was within a yard of his  driver, tho Kvhole way. 1W0 laltled  across Waterloo Bridge and through  mites of streets, until, to my astonishment, we found ourselves back in 1he  terrace in which ha had boarded,.

Give ma  a glass of wator, if you please. My  mouth gets dry with the talking.''  I handed him the gluss aud he drank  It <lcnvn.  ".That's better," ho said. "Well, I  waited for a quarter of an hour or  more, when suddenly thore came a  noise like people struggling inside tho  house. Next moment the door was  flung open and two men appeared, one  of whom was Drebber, and the other1  was a  young chap whom I had  never  A GREAT HYSTERY.  -*������������������-���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������  -    "There  was  not  a  soul  to  be  seen,  nor  a   sound  to be  heard, except  the  dripping of tho rain.'   Whon I looked  in at tho window, I found; Drebber nil  huddled  together  in a drunken sleep.  1   shook   him   by  the   arm,   'It's   lime  to go out,' I said.  "'All   right,   cabby,'  saitl  he.  "1  suppose  lie thought wo had como  to   the   hotel   that  ho  had  mentioned,  for  he  got out without another word  and  followed me down the garden.   I  had   Lo   walk  beside him  to keep him  steady,   for  he  was still   a  little  top-  heavy.   When we came to tho door I  opened  it  and  led him into tho front,  room.   I  give  you  my  word   that,   all  the   way,     tho   father    and   daughter  wero walking in front of us.  " 'It's    infernally    dark,'    said    he,  .stamping   about.  "'We'll   soon   have  a  light,'  I  said,  he was very .much mistaken. I soon  found out which was the window of his  bedroom, anil early next morning 1  took advantage of Dome ladders which  were lying ia the lane behind the hotel,  and eo made my way into his room in  th������ gray of the dawn, i woke him up,  and told him that the hour had como  wrhen he was to answer for the life he  had taken so long before. I described  Drebber's death to him, and 1 gave  h.'m the. same choico Of the poisoned  piils. Instead of grasping at tho  chance of .safety which that offered  h.'m, ho sprung from his bed and flew  at my throat. In self-defense 1 stabbed ih.in to tho iuvart. It would havo  been the same in any case, for Providence would never allow his guilty  hand to pick out anything but the  poison.  "I havo little more to say, and it's  as well, for I am about done up. I went  on cabbing if for a day or so, intending to koep at it. until 1 could save  enough to take me back to America.  I was standing in the yard when a  ragged youngster asked if there was a  cabby (.hero called Jefferson Hope, and  said that this cab was wanted by a  gentleman at 221 B Baker Street. , I  went round,,'suspecting no harm, and  the next thing I knew, this young  man   here   h id     the    bracelets on mv  striking a match and  putting it to a \wlUis  and ils neally shackled as ever!  wax-candle    which    I    had     brought  WM inlir rhat>     the whole of  ri,H���������  ���������f-|������������������������ M i^fe   *  "V ������������������*   eentlemox,.

I had almost decided upon this, when ho" solved the  problem for mo. .Tho craze for drink  had seized him again, and ho ordered  me to pull up outside a gin palace, lie  went in, leaving word that I should  wait for him. There he remained until  closing timo, and when he came out  he was so far gone that I knew the  game was in my own hands.  "iDon't   imagine   that  I  intended   to  kill him in cold blood.

I  was once a janitor and sweepeiSout  of the laboratory at York College. One  day  the    professor,   was    lecturing on  poisons,   and   he  showed  his, students  some alkaloid,  as he  called  it,  which  be   had    extracted    from  some South  American arrow poison, and which was  ho powerful that the least grain laoant  Instant death.   I spotted the bottle in  which  this preparation was kept,  and  when they were all gone I helped myself   to  a   little  of  it.   I  was  a -fairly'  good dispenser, so I worked  this alkaloid  iuto small, soluble pills, and each  pill  I put in a box with a similar rail  made without poison.    I iletermine'l at  the  time.that, when f had.'my chance,  my.   gentlemen    should    each  have  a  draw out of ono of these boxes, iv/oile  I eat the pill that remained.

"There is only one point on which I  should like a little, mora infoimalion,"  Shorlock Holmes said at last. "Who  was your accomplice who came for the  ring which I advertised?"  The prisoner winked    at my    friend  jocosely.  "1 can   tell my own secrets," he said,  but I don't    got    other     people into  trouble.

Perhaps it was some mischievous idea of setting the polico upon a wrong track, for I;felt light-  hearted and cheerful. I remembered a  German being, found in New York with  Rao-he written up above him, and it  was argued at the time in the'newspapers that (he secret societies irriisl  have dono it. I. guessed that what  puzzled the New Yorkers would puzzle  the Londoners, so I dipped my finger  in my own blood and printed it on a  convenient place on the wall. Then I  walked down to my cab and found  that there was nobody about, and that  the night was still very wild. I had  driven some distance, when I put my  hand'into, the pocket in which I usually  kept Lucy's ring, and found that it. was  not: there. 1 was thunder-struck at  this, for it was the only memento that.  1 had of her.

"The man who writes to the Times"  is not only an .entity in London but is  also a pictorial personage���������the theme,  of the artist, tho essayist, the novel  writer and the dramatist.

Russia was last visited by a famine  in 1891-92, but since that very severe  visitation there-has been only one exceptionally good year, and' hence tho  p������2asants have not been able to recover  from' their losses in 1892, when they  .were obliged to slaughter 45 per cent,  of (heir horses and cattle for want of  fodder. Moreover, this year the  landed gentry have been affected quite  as much as the peasantry, and the  series of bad years which they have  gone through has bo broken their resources  that many  of  them are  VERGING ON DESTITUTION.  In the case of tho peasantry it is reported that they have'~been compelled  to still further reduce tho number of  their    live stock.    They   aro  supporting life on all manner of substitutes  for bread, including the bark of trees  the  thatches from   the  roofs  of   their  huts, and even sawdust.   Every effort  is  being made by  the Government  to  prevent   tho   terrible   facts connected  with tho sufferings of tho people from  leaking out. But the vigorous champion  of the    Russian peasant,   Count Tolstoi,  has  managed to obtain publicity for a"  few circumstances which are sufficiently indicative of the state of affairs. He  says   that    statistical   researches  have  shown   that  the    Russian  people  consume, on  the whole, 30 per  cent, less  food   than   the  normal   amount  scientifically assumed to bo necessary    for  the  maintenance of  health.     He  also  points  to facts    which  aro  calculated  to show that during the    last  twenty  years    the    men    of  the   black   earth  region why have attained  tho ago for  nr.lita.ry service have increasingly failed   to satisfy   the authorities  of   their  fitness for such service.     Besides, the  census  returns prove   that,  while   the  population reached its maximum rate  of    increase    twenty    years   ago, that  dining ever since, until it has at last  touched zero, That is to say, the population  is  at   a   standstill,  and  everybody  knows    that   when   a population  attains  this stago it presently   begins  to decline.  LOST HEART  AND HOPE.  The village commune is also a virt of  trades    union,    which can    enforce its  terms on the landed gentry,-who' are-  often    in dire straits - for  labour,   the  peasant    frequently refusing  to wort  for them.   The system upon which tht  land was allotted to the peasants wa������  also    entirely wrong.    .The peasantry  have a firmly rooted Idea that originally    ail  the. land  belonged  to   them1)  and that tho gentry grabbed it and enslaved them.     Hence, when tho serb  were liberated they thought the landed  gentry should return the stolen land.'  Tho Government,  however,  only carv- .  ed off certain  portions of  tho estates  and allotted these portions to the peasantry,  who  bad   to pay, for   tht*m' by  annual instalments.   Tho gentry, however, were paid ac once and in full by  the Government, and immediately got  rid of the money in the approved Russian manner,    in  feasting,    gambling,  etc.     Their grievance is that the Government, by giving the peasants land,  has    deprived     the    gentry   of  their ���������  labourers, (wh!lo the peasants complain   '  that they have not received sufficient  land.   This is indeed tho caso, so that  the present state of affairs is'that nobody is pleased  and nearly everybody  ruined.   The estate owner can got no  labour;    tho peasant   has not enough  land   to support    himself.   Thus Russia  ia  face   to face with   bankruptcy,  an������l anybody who knows the real state-  of affairs in the country can not doubt -  the sincerity of Russia's desire for disarmament.

NEW��������� PAPER FIBER.,  ��������� i - -  On 'account of tho scarcity of raw  material for the paper mills of Holland  they now use the stalks of the. potato  plant, which can bo bought of the  i'armers for 50 cents per  ton.        .  Count Tolstoi .then points to tho appearance of the average Russian peasant of to-day, his emaciated body and  sunken cheeks, and contrasts tho condition of the rural population with  that of -.the'; urban,'whose physique, except in manufacturing towns, is generally magnificent., Count Tolstoi  maintains that the.peopLU are so police--  ridden that they have lost heart and  hope, they have no spirit' and no  energy, a general apathy has como  over them,' arid they havo bocomo  slothful arid gin-sodden.  , Count Tolstoi's picture, is'certainly  not overdrawn. The state of the country is '.hopeless and .the people know, it.  One of the worst!..features of agricultural Russia is the deforestation of tho;  country. Iho whole of Central Russia is practically denuded of trees, und  this has been brought about in a little loss than fifty years. The district  in which'.; Tourguoniev, the novelist,  and the personal l'r.ehd of Tolstoi, used  to shoot are now absolutely f bare.  This deforestation has of necessity  alfected the climate, and has reduced  the snow and rain falls; which are nothing iiko what they used to,bo. Snow  is to Russia what .the Nile is to Egypt;  it is the fertilizer .of the land. 'In. the  old days of serfdom the peasants wore  compelled by the landowners to dain  up this snow in the spring so that it  did not all run to waste in tho rivers,  but to-day these x>recautions can no  longer be enforced.- "Leading Russian  agriculturists aud engineers maintain  that the only possible way of/staving  off ruin is by the introduction of some  system of irrigation, as in India. Of  course, in olden, days the forests retained a good deal of tho snow even  until June, and thus contributed to  the humidity of the atmosphere.   .  LAND TENURE.  But the real cause of the depressed  condition of Russian agriculture is the  system of-land-tenure. The land does  not belong individually to tho peasant,  but' collectively to the village. The  village is responsible foa' the taxes,  and, hence, one wealthy peasant may  have to pay for the thriftless ones.  The consequence is that a system of  usury has sprung up, by means ��������� of  which the poorer peasants' are absolutely in tho power of their wealthier  and     often    unscrupulous    neighbors.  An Olil-Tlmc Incident of the lii<tul������ciice ol  .  , ltoy.it I>.iiii<"< in lhe Snort.  The  old    pi'actice  of    surf    sliding,  "hee-nalu,"    upon    surf    boards,    was  magnificent  sport,   says  a writer.    It  has fallen almost entirely into disuse  since forty years ago, when horses bo-  came numerous   and    cheap.     Before  that date I used frequently to see it  at   Lahama,   as   well   as     earlier   at  Kailua.     I  believe  some    adepts still'  practice it at Hilo.    The board used in  surf sliding is from five to eight feet  long  and  ten   to fifteen   inches wide,  rounded at the ends and sharpish at  the edges,'very much like a paper"cutter.    The rider , swims out  with    the  board under one arm, diving under the  rollers until outside'where the surf is  just beginning to break.   There, by' an  adroit  movement, he stretches himself  upon tho board just in front of a bigr ,  roller, at the same time, violently'plying arms and legs to "get ii move on,"  while the roller lifts him from behind.  Once in motion the wave does tho rest,  although great skill is needed to keep  the board poised precisely at the proper  height   and   inclination   upon   tho  front of the violently breaking roller.  The riders will thus shoot several hundred yards to the shore.  By early and long practice great  skill was attained in this sport. The  more expert would often rise to a  standing posture, halancing their  boards by their feet at (he right point  on (he wave. I can remember in early  boyhood daily watching from my home  through (he si cms of the lofty cocoa  palms, scores of natives flying in together in the while, roaring surf. Some  were prone, others crouching on their  boards, and some standing erect. Both  sexes participated, and modesty was  much at a discount, except when (he  venerated missionary was in sight. Tho  males ware (he malo or breech girdle ',  when disporting thus in our neighborhood. The females did not stand up  on  their  boards.  Customs   in  those  early  days    wero  Arcadian,     At about 1821 the writer's  young mother at Kailua once received  in her thatched cottage a morning call  frc.m a bevy of royal dames with their  attendants,  all  fresh   from surf  play.  The maidens    carried    the    garments  while their mistresses'stalked into (ho  missionary's  parlor  in   stately  simplicity and proceeded to dress.   All that  :  was utterly innocent, ��������� and so in a'certain sense was the nearly entire1 unre-.  straint of    domestic  morals in    those  early days.    To infuse some degree of   '  conscience on that point has been alto-    '  gether the most; difficult part of the  missionary's task in Hawaii.     To most  of the Ten Commandments the Hawai-     '  ian was easily amenable.   But the im-   ;.  portance of the seventh did,not readily come home to him.',  SPRIM lEDIOIffi.

Adeline Knapp, in hor. pretty book  "Upland Pastures," explains:  "What we call a flower is not, usually, the flower at all, but merely its  petals. The real flower is the cluster,  In tho center of the calyx, of the pistils and their surroundings pollen-bearing stamens. Away back in tho ages  when man had not yet developed his  esthetic sense, perhaps even before he  had l������jarned to make fire, the primitive flower boro only, these pistils and  stamens, with a little outer protecting  whorl of green petals. It was fertilized by the pollen falling upon the  stamens.  "But this was not good for the plant.  Those flowers that  in  some way    became  fertilized by   pollen  from  other  plants of  tho same  variety���������by  cross-  fertilization,    in    fact���������were  healthier  and stronger  than   those  fertilized  by  their    own pollen.   In  such  plants as  wind-blown pollen reached, this cross-  fertilization was an easy matter. The  buttercup,  for instance,  is not one of  these.      It  is forced  to  rely  upon  insects for fertilization.    "So  tho  plant  began   to    secrete    a drop    of    sweet  .->    liquidat the base of each green petal.  Such  insects as discovered this nectar  and stopped  to sip wero  dusted with  the pollen of the plant and carried it to  other flowers, where it fertilized    the  pistils.     This was very good as far as  it went, but tho flowers were pale and  inconspicuous, and many of them, overlooked by  the insects, were never visited.     Certain ones, however, owing to  accidents of soil and moisture, had the  calyx a littlo  larger  or  brighter  colored than    their fellows, and these the  Insects  found.       It .happened,    therefore, if anything ever does merely hap-  ' pen, that the flowers with bright petals  were  fertilized and  their  descendants  were  even  brighter-colored. -   Thus in  time    tho    buttercup,   by   tho  process  which  for  lack of a better name  'we  oall   natural   selection,   came to have  bright, yellow petals because these attract tho insect best adapted to ferti-  .   lizo it.   If man's aesthetic sense is gratified by the flower's beauty,, why man  is so much the bettor off, but that man  is pleased  by  the  bright  color is  not  half so important to tho buttercup as  is the pleasure of a certain little winged beetle which sees the shining golden  cup and knows it means honey.  "In  the same  way  the    lupin, with  its    pretty  bluo    and white  blossoms,  has developed its  blue  petals  because  it is fertilized by the bees.     They sook  It as they do other blossoms, not only  for    honey,    but tor the pollen itself,  which stands them in place of bread.  The very shape of the flower is due''to  the visits of  countless generations  of  this insect.     Tho bee is tho insect best  adapted  to    fertilize    the  lupin,    and  when he alights upon tho threshold of  a  flower his weight  draws  the lower  petal  down, and entering to suck tho  sweets he gets  his  head  dusted  with  pollen.   If a fly were to gain entrance  he would carry away no pollen.   He is  smaller than tho boo and his head could'  not reach  it.      .So honey-seeking flies  ulight in    vain; their    weight    is not  enough  to press    the    calyx  open, so  they may not ontor and sup upon the  nectar.     On tha blossom of the mimu-  lus,  tho odd-looking monkey-flowor, a  honey  bee  has    the  same  experience.  Tho bumble beo is tho only insect that  is largo enough to reach'the-poll en in'  this blossom and so its doors will open  only to It. .  "Botanists tell us that all this great  family to whioh the iteas and their  cousins/belong, wo.ro onco fivo-petaled  plants, but natural selection has  brought about thoir present shape,  whioh is an admirable i-irotection,  against the depredations of small insects, that could only rob but could  not fertilize the flowers.  "Blue is the favorite color of the  honey bee, and next to blue he prefers red. So bee blossoms are-blue or  red. Flowers that open at night: are  mostly white and are fertilized by  moths, etc., that: fly about in' the  darkness. This. accounts for their  color , and their . fragrance, both .of  which are to attract the insects that  distribute their pollen."    .;  have been literally isolated from it���������at  least in the majority of cases. True,  the new education has introduced them  into the kindergarten, retaining them  in moro or less close communion until  the high school is reached. But such  plants are, as a rule, owned and cared  for by tho teacher, while in the nursery, where they should become a part  of the child's own treasures, of his life,  lighting it with tho "stars which on  earth's firmament do shine," there is  an oppressive dearth and gloom.  One of the earliest manifestations of  a child's desiro is that of imitation;  what mamma does, that it strives to  do with all tho intensity of its nature.  To thwart thoso efforts is to ignore  tho principles of psychology, to crush  laudable ambition ; to encourage and  guide them is certain to increase for  the child the happiness of the present  ���������possibly infinitely more that of the  future.  Children love variety; even the new  doll soon becomes wearisome unless  possessed of a wardrobe so extensive  as to admit of frequent changes. Nature bountifully bestows' diversity' in  tho development from seed, to seed.  Patience there must bo, certainly, in  watching the various stages of growth;  yea, and thoughtful care; for a single  neglect at a oritical period might render previous labor vain, save in rich  memories. But these are cardinal virtues, and wisely is it ordered that we  cultivate them with the flowers. Generosity, too, is fostered in an extreme  degree ; for though slips, flowers and  seeds are freoly given, the source of  supply is as unfailing as the widow's  cruse.  Tho educational influence aro manifold. The tiny tot learns as readily to  distinguish the red or yellow petals in  the tulip and rose as in the worsted  ball which constitutes its first gift  from the disciplo of Froobel. Later it  takes'infinite pleasure in counting the  petals, and it may be readily taught  that this can be accomplished without  dissecting the blossom. Then comes  the study of form, abundantly illustrated in tho multiplicity of leaf out-  linos. These are but a few of the preparatory steps leading to the more  complete mature study, now a part of  the cuniculuni of the progressive graded school.  If floriculture appeals to tho lower  classes as well .as the higher in adult  life, this is true to a still greater de-'  g.ree in ,the case of tho child, who is  more impressionable, .less absorbed in  tho duties and responsibilities of life.  Tho fragile wild flower planted in a  rudo box is as much an object of admiration as tho choicest exotic grown  in a costly vase; its life history is as  wonderful, tho lessons taught as"  worthy  of contemplation.  With floriculture physical culture is  inseparably linked. No better morning exercise has been devised than an  hour's work iu the garden, while instances have been recorded of renewed  lifo, when death seemed inevitable, by  tho vital breath found in direct contact wilh the soul.  Tho aosthotio olemont has been already alluded to. Important in itself,  it has a deeper significance iu that if  loads irresistibly from, an admiration  for tho wondijbus works of nature to a  reverence for their Creator.  Plan, therefore, that'your little ones  may bo provided during the coming  year with at least one plant of their  very own. Ah, that happy realization  of ownership I What a pleasure, it  yields!

"No. 1 will not go to a physician  again this whole year, if I die for it!"  I savagely growled.  Dear woman, sho up, and kissed me  where I stood, door-knob in hand.  I put my hat back on the rack and  took off my coat. 1 had no idea that  tho family had noticed my growing  tendency to consult a physician over  every little ache and pain. But it  turned out that the whole domestic  circle, even to the children, had come  to hold me in mingled derision, pity  and apprehension. I'was becoming a  very medicine-toper," my oldest  daughtor said, Another child playfully remarked that "if papa's hoots were  left outside his door 'at night they  would run off of themselves, over to  the doctor's." My old mother informed me that I had quietly gotten up  from the evening board during tho  year just ono hundred and sixteen  times, to, "go over to tho doctor's a  moment/'  Now all this dosing habit came of  havinfg a very good friend in the doctor ; a -pleasant office fire by which  to sit and spin out the story of the  small maladies of tile day; and the  fact, unfortunately, that a year bo-  ftoro I had moved into the.same block  with the doctor, whereas previously we  had resided" more than a milo apart.  The result showed in.my January bill,  too. It took my breath away I ������ For  tho dear doctor, while always glad to  see me after supper, androady to offer me a good cigar, yet,' sly, good soul,  had always faithfully put down in his  little book each bottle of pills administered.  Ah, I remembered afterward . how  assiduously he always sat writing  thore at his table while we chatted.  All of which was right, I had had his  services and ought to pay for them.  But tho question arose���������was I really  any better for such an appalling mass  of very valuable stuff ? Now, 1 had  wot had an exceptional year. My  health had been, on the whole, about  as usual. But, looking on this astounding bill, 1 asked myself what 1  had to showr for'it. 1 concluded ii was  the dear price of a whistle of habit���������  the bad habit of dosing, it had run  to tho doctor's for every little thing.  Nature would havo cured me in ninety  per cent of tho cases; indeed, Nutuie  did all the -curing. And the doctor  just nudged kind Nature's elbow, tipped the damo a wink, and took his  toll. '    '  'That ,. was    a  year  ago.      For    the  whole of last year 1 kept my sudden  vow, with tho exception of threo visits,  and  1  was nover  in  better condition  for work  than this minute.   My doctor's  bill   this year   was  eighty-three  per cent. less than last year, and Tom  had tho scarlet fever, too, to bo reckoned  in.   It  demanded a   bit  of  resolution,   at   first,   to   endure    a  cuugh  and face "certain death by pneumonia  or    consumption,"    but  1    found,   on  trial, as you see,  chat I did not havo  either of   these  terrible  diseases;  my  cough   yielded   to  a   warm   bath    and  diet, with a day. or two of wife's care  in   the  house.   1 founil  that  in every  ease rest was more than half my cure;  to   lie   on  a   sofa  for  a  nap    after a  light dinner aud to empty the too full  mind,  tuking off weights    from    the  too   taut   nerves, probably   cured    mo  every time.   The good doctor wonder-  p������l what had become of me, and finally  actually sent for me.   Of course 1  \, as obliged to resume my social visits,  but 1 waited till 1 dare risk myself to  enter   his  medicinal   and   pathological  presence without popping to him somo  question   about    the   liver,   diaphragm  or cerebral  nerve.  In timo I nas quite capable of sitting for an hour or two, chatting  wilh the physician���������who is really a  royal gentleman���������and never so much  as mentioning any of my organs. 1  was even capable of enduring a pretty  keen pain in.->idt>. my jacket without  'opening my lips to the professional  man;' I only hurried out sooner on  such occasions, to get to lied anil  sleep off my aches. Yes, there I. have  sat for a year past and talked stocks  .with t ho' doctor���������stocks, being my  line���������while his busy lie'ii was jotting  down the awful changes of his day's  round among my unlucky neighbors,  but. never one against me. ..I record-  it' 'with astonishment that I acUally  have it fair bill against the doctor"for  brokerage, that he incurred . whi I ell -  was sitting, on frequent evenings, by  his own fire. .  The sense of relief from this interminable slavery of dosing is immense.  Instead   of   a ; vest-pocket- full-, of bottles and ���������-.fob;: pocket, full-of powders, 1  have carried the customary belongings  of  a  healthy .man's pocket.    My cigar  h s  tasted    better    without' medicine  to  blunt   the tongue.     My bread has  been   more   palatable,   because  disconnected with that: noisome decoction to  ba  taken . just   before    eating.     "[  do  not   suddenly   leave    a   customer  and  dodge  into   the  back office td: take  a  pi 11   at   the  exact  hour.   1  have  moro  spoons   in   the' silver   closet  'at home,  and  no spoons in, the. office desk, nor  on   my   chamber  mantel,   nor  back  of  (he library,; book case, etc., as before.  .How   many   spoons,   wedding   presents  nt   that,   my  dear '.wife,  lost    whilo   1  was in  the dosing craze,  I  know not:  but   I   <|o   know     that   I  gave  her    a  handsome  dozen  solid    silver ' spoons  for   a   Christmas  present   nut   of     the  doctor's brokerage, commissions.  1 laugh at my enslaved friends whom  I yet   see all about me.    On the    train  last Saturday night I saw one fino-  looking old gentleman trying to slyly throw down his throat a pill, with  a glass of water to shoot it into place.  This man was hiding up .by tho wash-  basin'of the drawing room car. I  turned to go back to the dining car,  and there stood another giant surreptitiously taking a powder, which he  sprinkled all over his vest. Ou the  platform stood a third giant actually  iwuring his potion' into a tpaspoon.  no got it all over his gloves, and his  remarks were decidedly emphatic. All  throe of t hose men woro tho very picture of health. Oh, I knew what was  tho matter. Nothing was (he mater  bul a good doctor near by, and (ho  dosing habit! The three all looked  ashamed when detected. My wife,  who was on the train, informed me  that she had noticed five ladies and  ono other gentleman, all of rugged  appearanco, dosing ''just before eating"���������that is, just before the dining  car was put on.  Doctors havo their place. I have  often written in their praise. -. But a  man cannot live on medicine. Alas!  how many of our prosperous people,  who can afforil to coddle every ache,  keep a doctor, as much a part of their  domestic establishment as a butcher.  Exercise, temperance, rest, a cheerful ' spirit, an unselfish disregard of  small pangs���������these, with an iron will,  can help most of us, most timos, with-t  out medicin'e. The exception is tho  doctor"s rightful opportunity, and  thank God, for tho doctor then! But"  for my part, if you please, not till then.  It is a fine art to learn when to call  tho doctor, it needs skill and experience not to waste your doctor. *  IN THE FACE OF DEATH.  t'onl Miners I'lay l.jime-. While I.nloiiilioit  In a ..line.  When a fall of coal, a flood, or an  explosion occurs in a coal-mine, women are heard .wailing at the mouth  of the pit, bul. the entombe<l miners  themselves know better than to give  way to dismay. '.Tho methods they  sometimes employ to keep up one another's courage seem reckless and  strange,, when described after the.  event, but they answer their end of  preventing panic. ��������� Oassell's Saturday  Journal tells of a catastrophe that occurred not so vary long' ago in a coalpit   in England., ���������  . Fifteen men wore shut,of I' from the  cage by tons and tons of coal brought  down by an explosion of fire-damp.  Tho an.vious crowd at the pit's mouth  waited until the gas had cleared from  the. cutting, and then began Ihe work  of rescue, bur with very.little hope of  success.  Progress was rapid, however, and  after a lime the relief party got in-'  to the narrow passage where their  comrades were entombed. What they  saw and heard there almost made  their, gasp for breath. Fifteen colliers  were on the floor, some of them lying  dead, others sitting up and singing  comic songs.' A little further on was  'i football impro\ised from the collieis'  shirts and caps. It bore unmistakable  signs ot  recent  rough  usage.  'Wi thowt as long as we'd got to  dee, we'd'dee kickiu'," explained one  of the survivors; "so we rigged up a  football, an' punched it' about", in tha  dark.; George there*fell down dead as  ho war scoria' a goal, but' we went on  play in' to pass time on, and then t' gas  cleared off a bit."  Only four of these men, who were  determined not to turn ev..arris at the  sight ot death,' came out of ihe pit  alive; but i hey bore witness that the  others had died without, a sign of fear.  It was not the highest form of courage, but it was courage that mei the  am urgency.  In another case, whe-n the relief  party got through the mass of fallen  co.il. four sturdy miners were found  dead. That I hey also had sought to  lender the time of waiting less terrible wax evidenced by snores of Jit-  lie marbles, made, of compressed coal-  dust, lying on the dump floor. Two  of the men were found lying at full  length, with their fists screwed up  ready to fillip.  ThiM'r wan faces .smiled, oven in  death, ami (his proof of iheir unfailing hcpcfulness hi ought (e.irs to the  eyes    of ,|hose who entered the pit.  in an accident that ended loss.tragically the miners were surprised by tho  relief party while yet in the midst of  a garnie'dear to a collier's heart.  "Hullo, lads, we didn't expect'to'see  ye," laughed one of the pa lo' and haggard , men, stooping to replace the  lump of coal* which served as the.  "duck." "Ah, reckon .ye'll stop and  hey a game-'with us afore we go back."  And the half-famished men and boys  actually insisted on"., finishing the  game before thoy would allow themselves to be taken  to tho shaft,  WHAT THE DOGTOES SAT.

In all circumstances he  has displayed a tendency to mysticism  tor the realization of this dream. At  tho present day it is not to the black  arts, but to science that people turn,  believing that among ihe many mar-  vel-s it accomplishes it will also succeed  in adding this one tu its contributions  to human happiness. In vain scienoe  points out that thoro is no remedy for  old age, it. being attended by a definite organic decline; the human mind  continues to hope for the discovery  which is   to satisfy its eternal longing.  Is this discovery to tako electro-  Iherupio form? Mr. Aithaus published  Jin ouo of tho recent numbers of the  Lancet :i curious article on old ago and  rejuvenescence, in which he claims that  mere galvanization of tho nervous centres sutficos to check or efface senile*  decline.

It would be better if those controlling the sporting combinations in the  local towns would be a little more certain before making  promises for celebrations, as promises sometimes lead  t������ disappointments.   It is quite true  that Sandon owes Kaslo a good representation, as the Kasloites have always  patronized our festive occasions heartily ;  but when promises were made to  Silverton, before Kaslo thought of celebrating the 24th, the most of our peo;  pie are resolved on keeping good faith;  Sandon may send a hose-reel team to  Kaslo, but most ef our athletes and  the brass band are going to Silverton.  The 1 general crowd of the place will,  however, be much scattered.  Nelson is going to have a street railway.  Mr. Pearson is talking of re-opening  the comique on improved principles.

Holmes, 530 Concession St., Ottawa, Ont., testifies as  follows: "For some years past I was  greatly troubled with weakness both of the  nerves and heart. My heart would beat  very irregularly, sometimes throbbing,  and at other times seeming to go up into  my throat, thuscausingaterrible smothering sensation. Finally I grew so weak that  I could not sew. Although I tried many  remedies I eould obtain no relief, and  was almost in despair of a cure.  "One day, however, Iheardof Milburn's  Heart and Nerve Pills and began to use  them, and am now better than I have been  for years. I work right along now, aud  the pains and palpitation have left me,  much to my relief. My blood seems to be  enriched andf ull of vital ity, and my entire  system is in ahealthyand vigorous state."  ^������^-5^5Jd3.5$i$SS������:2':5d  <e  COUGHS AND COLDS;  Very valuable Rtimedy in all  affections of the  c <fi  WATCHES.
