Surprise May Be Their Intention���������  ..Raiding Orange Free State.  Lord Roberts Waiting'Tor'Remounts and  Winter Clothing.  London, April 00���������5 a.m.���������Preparations are being made to hold Bloem-  fontein against a surprise. Lord Kitchener has been given important duty,  being responsible for the protection of  railways, while Lord .Roberts is waiting  for remounts and winter clothing for  the .troops, whose thin cotton khaki  uniforms and boots are worn out. Lord  Roberts will probably for some time  continue his operations of clearing the  Free State of raiders preparatory to relieving Mafeking, for which purpose  apparently the Eighth Division,now arriving at Cape Town,.has been ordered  to Kimberly.  Lady Sarah Wilson and other Mafeking correspondents send diaries of  doings ttiore, showing that the Boers  have tried, by abandoning trenches, to  lure the beaeiged out into a mined ambush. Fortunately, the British engineers discovered the mine, cut the wire  communication and unearthed the 25  pounds of dynamite and war gelatine.  ��������� London, -April 9.���������The Bloemfontein  correspondent of the Daily Telegraph,  telegraphing Sunday, says :  "Tho railway and telegraph are working well. Works and trenches have  been prepared in suitable positions  around. Bloemfontein. The greatest  vigilance is exercised. Some of the  troops sleep in the trenches.  ''Conformation has been received of  the reporit'nhac the Boers are in laager  in considerable numbers, with guns, at  Dinkersport, 18 miles southeast. The  British scouts report another body still  closer. The Boer patrols have grown  veiy bold, venturing much nearer our  tents!" . '  London, April 9.���������The' amazing ac-  tivityof tlie Boers southeast and south-  west-of Bloemfontein continues. The  Boer commands are seemingly going  and'eoming throughout a wide region  as they please, ��������� but taking good care  not to throw themselves against bodies  of the British. .The .retirement.of .the  Irish Rifles from-Rouxville. to Aliwal,  /leaves gallant General Brabant without  communication with the British forces.  He has 2,000jto 3,000 Colonials..holding  a fine defensive position, but, he is apparently vested so far as London knows.  "Telegraphic and;.railway communications "with Bloemfontein are kept upas  usual;: but nothing comes through for  public consumption.  ���������  Carnarvon, Cape Colony, April .9.���������  Knisdardt was. formally re-annexed to  CapefJolony April 1st, amidst cheers  ... of assembled.troops.... .A large number  of insurgent colonists, including many  of their leaders are now imprisoned  here.' Col. Drury's column, including  the West Australian and- Canadian  Mounted Rifles and Artillery, left here  yesterday for De Aar.   ���������  Ottawa, Ont., April 10.���������A cable was  received today from Lord Strathcona  ; asking that a contingent of 50 men be  forwarded." to South Africa at once to  join ".the Strathcona Horse, and be  ready to. (ill vacancies which may be  caused by casualties or otherwise.  London, April 1L���������The Bloemfontein correspondent of the Times, telegraphing Monday, says:  "The enemy are making a generil  attempt to discover a strategic opening. Their numbers are unknown to  us, but are anywhere between 3,000 and  6,000. They are moving cautiously.  Remounts are arriving, but the Argentine arrivals are little liked by thc  cavalry.  .���������  ,  Among the valuables discovered, belonging to Messrs. Steyn and Fischer,  is some correspondence proving that  the fall of Ladyamith was to be the  signal for a general Dutch uprising."  tein correspondent of the Times, tele  graphing Wednesday says :  "It is announced in general orders  that General Sir Herbert. Chermside  has been appointed to the command ot  the Third Division, vice General Sir  William Gatacre, 'ordered home to  England.'  General Brabant's force is confident  of being able to hold out. The Boers  after showing considerable dash, wavered when it came to the scratch and  struck at the least vital point, where  they are greatly, handicapped by their  proximity to the Basil to border.  Owing to thc strategical concentration since the enemy's movements became defined, there need be little  anxiety as to the safety of the Cape  Border."  1 GniDDDLL  Tie Ottawa'Government Gives Lieut.  Governor Melnnes a Pointer.  THE ORACLE.  "Tom Taylor   Is  a   Dead Duck   in   the  Revelstoke Riding.'.'  Such  is the   classical language employed by the   Nelson Tribune to dps-  cribe  Mr. Taylor's candidature in the  constituency to the north ot us.   Nothing will please  the Tribune that does  not   endorse bodily the legislation of  our tin-horn politicians, that does hot  appeal directly to the worst prejudices  of the   most prejudiced  men   in   the  country.   This.with the Tribune, is the  only statesmanship.that can ever make  B. C. a great country.   Whenever objection is taken to our eight-hour law,  the vaporer at Nelson  says  Australia  has an eight-hour day, and why,should  it not do here.     Now, it so happens  that Mr. Taylor recommends the same  law to a letter that Australia has, and  yet in its prophetic poison the Tribune  says he is "a dead duck."   No one is a  living duck  to  the Tribune   but John  Houston and  he enjoys life merely because his foundation is  unlimited  intentional deception of the people.. Mr.  TayJor says he .believes in a law that  limits a  miner's day's work t6  eight  hours unless he finds it'to his o.vn personal advantage to extend it.   It appears   to   most  sensible   people   that  nothing can be more reasonable than  that.   It affords protection -while conceding the light of free will.  Elections 9th of Jane.  It is understood that a request has  been mado asking Lieutenant-Governor  Melnnes to explain in particular, why,  after'*? ising ministers with seats in  the lo, jture, he procured ������ new  set of .linisters without seats in the  legislature and wholly without parliamentary experience. It is believed  that the highest authorities in Victoria  regard this action of the governor a  subversion of parliamentary government, and as being outside our system  of carrying on public affairs. There-  ply of the lieutenant-governor does not  satisfactorily explain histaction in this  respect.  It ia  believed  that Lieutenant-Governor Mblnnes has been instructed that  he  must, summon the legislature immediately, in order  that' irresponsible  persons   should" hot have   conduct ot  public affairs, or he hi list dissolve the  legislature at once and give the public  an opportunity of recording their judgment.    The new government are  understood to take the position in British  Columbia that :i elections   must be delayed   until June,   in  order  to afford  time for theirevision  of voters' lists  which were revised six or eight months  ago.   Here they are regarded as reducing this from a   sufficient reason  to a  mere excuse.   The number of persons  who   could   have become qualified as  voters in bix or eight months would be  extremely small in  every province of  the Domihion.    A voters' list  six or  eight'months-bid would be regarded as  a fresh one,   and parliament,   in  the  Franchise Act, decided that a provincial voters'list less than-twelve months  old was a perfectly good and sufficiently new list.  on the lists in other constituencies, and  going, on here would, of'course, give  two votes, which is contrary to Taw.  Others have admitted that they voted  in the States and did' riot take the oath  of allegiance hero. It matters not if a  youth has been born on British soil, so  long as he grew up and exercised the  rights of citizenship ;.n the, States, or  took the oath of allegiance there, he  must take another'ont.h here before he  can go on the voters' lists. These  things should be well looked after.  The law allows every British or naturalized subject of this province one vote  somewhere within its bounds, if he  complies with'the law, but not other-  wise,and only one vote at that. Though  ttie writer has entered, some appeals  against'votes said by the best intorma-  tion available, to be objectionable,  where mistakes are shown to have occurred thoy will be cheerfully rectified;  but we desire to see, as all good citizens  should, a proper voters' list.  MINES AND MINING.  A New Firm.  The Political Arena.  The probe from Ottawa has brought  things to a  head at Victoria,  as   the  Legislature is how dissolved  and   the  writs issued fixing nominations for the  26th of May  and  the elections on the  9th of June.   It is possible to have the  new lists orinted  by' that time, provided   their   printing    is   distributed  around.;  The work cannot possibly; be  done in the government offi :e alone in  time.   It is time that.the parties in  this   constituency  were getting   their  meii  in the field,   as there is not an  hour to spare.   Joseph says he will put  up a. candidate in every constituency,  which means,   as we   have  all along  said, a three-cornered fight in the SIj- '  can.   From   the way. Mr. Green   has  been manipulating things it would appear he thinks he has the whole mining vote iu his i ooket; and apparently  he wants none other, as  he has taken  no step  in his rounds  r.o consult any  one,oii anything, save the miners.   We  are fully confident, however, that many  of the miners have minds ot their own,  and  that  when the time comes they  will use them.   All the same, however,  the parties should hold conventions at  once and place their'men in  the field  to give them a fair chance to   confer  with all the electors.  Exclude, or Treat Them Properly.  Joe Martin says ho will ignore the  Liberal convention just as the convention ignored him, Tit for tat is fair  play. ~  The Hon. C. H- Mcintosh, of Ross-  land, has been selected bythe Conservatives to contest that district in the.  coming elections.  The Conservatives of Victoria have  declared for Federal party lines, although they do not accept all the Conservative platform, which means that  the elections will be run on party lines,  though Joseph promises to place a  candidate in every constituency.  "Fighting Joe" will yet find that  catering to the worst passions of dissatisfied men is not the way to govern  a_country. He has revelled in that  kind ot thing all his life; and, though,  he has had several opportunities, he  has made the saddest shipwreck of  them all. Meii of all shades of thought  and feeling must be taught that governments cau only be run on common  sense lines, that statesmen cannot  trample on principles and the rights of  minorities for the sake of capturing  majority votes.  Messrs. Armstrong and Logan have  formed a partnership and are opening  a new tailor' shop in the store next to  Geo. Kay's old stand. The squib up  the #ulch says they took possession of  Kay's old business without bill of sale  or other authority, and kept it -till  turned out by the authorities. One of  them was in .Kay's employ and was  left in charge, as we understand it, by  Kay until he returned. Under such  circumstances he was perfectly justified  in holding possession, until a process  of law might show different ownership.  Thc general impression is that Kay  has lett the country ; but if he should  return and straignten up affairs, it  would be "evident his man , was the  rightful occupant of th'e premises even  until then. What field there may be  for another shop we, of course, do not  know���������they must be the best judges of  that themselves. They are, however,  said to be good workmen, and will, no  doubt, secure'their share of the' business.  The Wakefield will shortly commence  shipping a car of concentrates a day.  Mr. W. C. Adams has over 20 men at  work on the Arlington.at Slocan City.  , An important strike has been uiade  on the Two Friends, near Slocan City.  J. Loingan and B. Gr.uly commence  work on the Great Eagle,_ at Three  Forks, this week.  The Sunset mine, at Whitewater, has  been.bonded at $30,000,by J. C. Drewry  for the Canadian Gold Fields.  Thurston and Williams have bonded  a two-thirds interest in the. Two  Friends, on Lemon Creek, forSlS,000.  The bondholders' are almost sure: to  take up the, bond on the Hewett, SIo-.  can Lake, so well is the property turning out.  Altogether there are now well on to  55 hands working at the Star, and in a  short time, it is said, the force will'be  increased to its full capacity, about 100.'  men.  A strike was made on the  Rambler-  Cariboo of from two to four feet of high  grade ore,   the   other day.   This will  further increase its producing capabilities.  The Hall Mines at Nelson are to be"  re-organized. "The general belief is  there is pay ore on the property, but it  has been handicapped by machinery,  etc., on insufficient working capital.  Summer Celebrations.  PERSONAL   MENTION.  en  one  Our city band had two offers of  gagements for the 24th of May,  from  Silverton   and   the "other  from  Kaslo. ��������� The members,  we understand,  have agreed,  to; accept   Kaslo's ; ofler  principally because   the most of San-  don's holidayers,   as well as the   hose  and reel team, will go   there..  There  are but four places in the Slocan so far  that have celebrating aspirations, and  they  should agree   to select different  days for their amusements.   The summers are long,   amusements not over  plentiful, and it would matter little, for  an outburstof loyalty, whether a celebration  was held on the 24 of May or  the  24th of June.   Slocan City is, we  belieye arranging for the 1st of July.  The 21st of June could be celebrated as  Coronation Day and  with  L:ibor Day  leave a choice for Sandon and Silver-  ton.   By arranging to spread their fetes  throughout the season the meandering  crowds eould take them all in, and the  fun would not be.abit too much.  A Halt Called.  Gu;sts at the Reco.  GENERAL GATACRE RFCALLED.  General Sir Herbert Chermside Succeeds  Him���������General Pole-Carew.  Bloemfontein, April 10. ��������� General  Gatacre, the commander of ([the Third  Division, is about to return to England.  General Pole-Carew has been appointed  to the command of the Eleventh Division. General changes are likely to be  made in the brigade commands.  London,   April  12.���������The Bloemfou-  W. B. Melnnes is doing his best at  Ottawa to prevent Chinese from being  employed on railways. This is the  height of nonsense. The Chinese and  Japanese must be excluded from the  country altogether or allowed to work  at whatever they can get to do. It is  the height of folly���������it is worse, it is a  crime to allow them to come in under  heavy payments and then debar theni  from earning a livelihood when they  do come in. The idea should be exclude  them and buy those out who are here,  or abandon the matter altogether. The  better plan is to buy out and exclude.  RICH BLOOD.  If the stomach and bowels perform  their duty, the blood is rich in all the  elements needed. to assure perfect  health. Karl's Clover Root Tea taken  as directed, guarantees the perfect action of stomach and bowels. Price 25  cts. and 50 cts. Money refunded if you  are not satisfied. Soli by McQueen  the Druggist.  Things are coming to a focus at Victoria,  Governor Melnnes has been advised from Ottawa   to either  dismiss  Martin: or dissolve the Legislature at  once.   It was generally understood the  Ottawa government could  not endure  this farce any longer���������the affairs of the  country   being managed by a lot of incapable,   irresponsible   men,   without  experience   and without seats   in the  Legislature.   It' the legislature  is dissolved the elections will be held on the  lists revised last November; and if Joe  is dismissed the probabilities are there  will be no elections at all, as this time  Melnnes will be likely to call on some  member of the House, who can control  a majority, and go on with the  business of the country through a coalition  without a new election.

And, though many such we've known,

We have shared each other's gladness
Aud wepc each, olher'-s tears ;<
And Let us hope the future
As this past has been will be;
I ,will share with thee thy sorrows;   c
And thou thy smiles'.with me.
It Ts about this time that the <oId-
fnishi-oiMMl housewife sets about, the
yearly hiouseclea.ning. Of course,
thiere.are some, who belong to that energetic class wih.0 begin early in April,
and plan and sysUsmize their wiork, and
rush through it, and by the'time May
1st comes around, they are seated serenely, wiLh hands folded, and smiling
a smile of supreme oontentment and
restfulness. There are others who
would noL think of doing any such
tilling as cleaning house at this season,
"What," some will exclaim, "go to
all the bother ��� of cleaning and dragging one's life out at this time of the
year, when for four or five months to
follow doors and windows are to bo
op-en aU the lime, not only.to let in
air, but all thie sifting dust, fromwitli-
to clog up everything.      Humph!
indeed!      ;No spring cleaning   for
I shall do mine in the fall, when
well for' another five minutes. Rinse
with cold water and set to drain ; when
dry it will be beautifully clear and
Chapped Hands.���Insufficient drying
is'.'the cause of most chapped, hands,
ft is an excellent idea to keep on one's
dressing table a box of almond ineal
with a perforated cover. When the
hands aire dried with tho towel, a little ainiond ineal dusted over them
will complete the work of absorbing
tho miaisture.
I  kno'w I can keep  things spick
span,  all through  the winter."
Well, so be it. Each will work at
their own time and according to their
Inclinations. The good, old-fashioned
housekeeper will, however, look to do
the great labor of housekeeping about
Hue last.week in .April or thet first in
Il is a good plan, wluen possible, to
take'dawn all heavy draping.?, as por-
tierres, lambrequins, etc., and replace
'-. them with .something that is more in
��� keeping with the heated soason. A
pair of laoe curtains hung over the
folding doors, a laoe lambrequin over
th'f." mantelpiece, wlill do much toward
making a room look oool and inviting
on a warm. day.
If you will make coverings for your
furniture, you will find it will not only
saTia it a jgreat deal, but you wiill find
thai the appearance of your rooms is
agreeably changed.
Then again, it is also an excellent
plan to take a igood-sized piece of
drugget and place over your carpets,
it will save an.immense amount, of
���wear and dirt from working in, and
there Ls nothing so destructive as dirt.
To Wash Silk Stockings.���Wash silk
stockings in cold wyiler, and with
white soap, rinse in cold water, then
lay them flat in a clean towel, roll
them up tightly, and let them remain
till they are dry. It you rub them
with a piece of flannel it will give
them d gloss, and they will not require ironing. Silk stockings should
never be left in wiater; they must'he
washed quickly, and rolled -up''.-at
A Biroom. Bag.���Whoever has hard--
wiood or painted floors to keep clean
should provide herself with sevoral
. broom bags of canton flannel,'made
up with the fleeced side out. Tie the
broom- on one of these hags, and.by-
diraiwiing it over a polished floor, you
ui/iy gather up all tlie dust and lint,
and save yourself the tiresome stooping necessary to wipe it up with a
cloth. The broom bag, too, is a great
o.id in cleaning house, in wiping the
dust off the -walls., it will take up
the dust from matting as easily as
from a painted floor, and by rinsing
out in clear water occasionally does
excellent service. ���
To Clean Hair Brushes.���Dissolve a
piece of common soda tlie sizo of a
.wu-luut in proportion to a quart of
waiter, dip the bristles of the brush
briskly in and out of tho water again;
keep the back and handles as free as
possible. . Repeat this until the
brush looks clean, then dry the back
and the handle, shake well to throw
eus much wet as possible out of the
bristles, und set in the sun for near
the fire to dry.
Patching Socks.���A correspondent
has discovered that she can patch
socks more quickly and just as serv-
tc^ably as she can darn thorn, not to,
mien lion saving her eyesight. She
takes the sock in hand, trims the edge
of the hole, cuts a. patch ftromi the good
pairt of another, whips it' down over
the hole on the wrong side, then turns
and does the same on the right. There
aire no seamB to hurt the flesh, and
the patch wears as long as the darning   would.
To Clean Decanters.���Get some old
pieces of blotting paper and soap them
well,   roll  the bits  up small and put
Cases of poisoning"''.have arisen
through a careless disregard for the
cleanliness of the cooking utensils or
of their perfect condition. As soon
as a copper, saucepan 'shows signs of
being at a-lj wiorn it. should be returned, and in any case nothing of an
acid nature should be allowed to remain in it while cooling. The same
with regard to zinc and lead vessels,
which are unsafe, for cooking purposes'. Those of tin, steel, iron or nickel aire the safest bo employ. Remember, too, th/ait it ia better to use a
wooden spoon than; one of metal when
stirring milk or soups, and that before
using baking pans you should grease
them inside thoroughly oither with
butter or lard. In order to prevent
the tins from, burning it is as well
to take the'precaution of sprinkling
the shelves of the oven with salt.
A mew idea is to put the flavoring
of cake,' pudddnps, sauoes, etc., with
the butter. The butter holds the
flavor, bettor than any other medium.
Try potatoes, boiling, with a sharp,
thin-blade knife. They will, hot split
apart, as they do when they are tried
with a fork, which, acts like a wedge,
and thiey will not show where they
are  pierced. t

A very pretty way to fill up an ugly
space between two door casings which
is not,suitable to bang a picture in,
or in case one does not own a picture
(he proper size and shape, is to take
a length of china silk of a harmonious
tint,, and lay it in tucks standing upward. It is necessary to'begun' at the
tap of thai space, at the frieze, i�� possible, and lay tho lucks deep enough to
hold up photographs. These tucks
should be tacked with brass headed tacks to keep them in place, and the
silk drawn ligliLly across the space.
This is a pretty decoration even wi'b
bUL a few pictures if the oolor ia well
chosen. Where there are a great
many pictures and the background ia
completely covered, a firm 'quality of
a Te<ss'expensive'material will do just
a-s well.
Where there is a set of pictures
which would, make a straight string
of views, across the panel the silk can
be especially arranged so as to form a

"I, havo known of some queer marriages
in the 30 years I havo knocked, about the
world,'' said a soa captain tho othor day,
'f'but'I think tho pairing off of tho jailbirds at Andaman was tho strangest thing
of thorn all/ For a couplo of yearn I commanded the steamer that runs dowii
monthly from Calcutta to tho penal oolony
for British India on tho Andaman and
Nioobar islands. . I'was a youngster then
and interested "fn all sorts of things, and It
didn't tako me long, to striko up an acquaintance .with tho chief commissioner
or president of tho colony, who used to lot

"The prison is , as inaccosslble as any
sultan's harem,: It is built on a promontory and protected on tho side toward the
son by a sheer cliff 200 feet high, whilo ou
the land sido the grounds tire surrounded
by a 51 foot wall. There aro several guards
stationed at tho entrance, and lu order to
got by tho first of those a man lias to give
acertain password. , In return this guard
gives him another password, which takes
him by the second, and so oh, past half a
dozen may bo. Those police, as they are
callod, are the oldest and most hideous
women in tho jail.- To be eligible a woman must havo gray hair and a faoothut
would stop a clock, besides a reoord for
sobrioty and obedience.
"All tlmprlsonera have to work,' and in
tho female prlson.thoy weave all the'cloth
for the men's olothes nnd their own, and
mako them up, loo, I believe. If any of
the women refuse to do their stint of
, work, they are punished. Tho first punishment is to out off their huir. This thoy
don't liko vor^ muoh, and tho throat of It
will gonerally bring them to terms, for
thoy uro just as vain as othor women and
don't want thoir long hair out off. If this
doesn't convince thorn that it's better to
work In the shop, thoy are mado to wuar
man's clothes and work in tho'grounds,
whioh are beautifully kept, entirely by
the women prlsonors. Tho trousers and
jackets givon to thoso who aro punished
In this way aro of tho coarsest material,
and are vory unbecoming, and tho woman
have to trundle wheelbarrows and dig in
the dirt, just liko mon. If evon this falls,
thoy are further punished by being put to
sleep in a coll with the floor covered by
branches laid in rows and then In oross
rows, grill fashion. Tho branches aro full
of sharp thorns, which make it impossible
to stand, sit or He down in comfort.
"Gonerally one night of this Is enough to
make tho worst caso ready for the workroom, but thero was ono girl who stood
tho extreme penalty of throo nights in this
room and still refused to do a link of
work. Sho wouldn't work, and nothing
could make hor work. So finally thoy
gavo her up as a bad job, and mado hor

"When thoy have mayha a dozen tickot
of leave mon and women, they have a sort
of matrimonial reoeptlon.   If any matches
are made tho oouples are allowed to go up

they get a certain number of  acres, a hut
and some commissary stores, and   aro loft
to .themselves.    The ticket! of leave don't
tako them  anywhere except  to  the Nico-
bars, for they-nearly  all. have, life  sentences.    These matrimonial roceptlous nre
the funniest thing I ever saw.    The men
are brought one by ono into a sort of  reception room, where the women are standing in a  long row.    There  aro gonerally
several   breaks  in   the  lino,   to  separate
those of different castes and religious, for
thoy aro very particular about that in India.   Some of these men  haven't seen a
woman  for ton  years,  maybe, and'they
look Yory ourlously.at thorn.

Hnkei in  Excellent  Tniie  Needle.
SuritaaaiiiK the Hntrpln.
Whon a woman loses her tape noedlo tho
olevorest expedient is a safety pin. The
resourceful woman who has just hit upon
this novel way out of the- difficulty never
la clroumvonted by trifles, and every woman who tries this improvised tape noodle
will bless tho birthday.of that cleverwom-
��� Thoway to uselfc lsthls: Stick the point
of tho pin through the . tape or ribbon,
elasp the pin, use either end as a loader,
and there you are, with a smooth, blunt
implement, which' w'h . not only weave
through bauds or insertion perfectly,, but
will hold the ribhon with, abaolutoly so-
ourity to the finish.
When a woman wants a tape needle and
hasn't one she is tho most helpless creature oh tho foco of the earth: .;��� Mostly sho
hasn't one. She thlnkB she has, of course,
aa no well regulated wbrkbaskot is complete without it, but the times she searches
for it In vain aro post all counting.
A tape needle is a slippery little thing
that possesses a positive genius for disappearing. Lay it down a minute, and it will
walk oil with Itself in a manner equaled
only by a man's shirt studs. Its aggravating propensities would fill a chapter, and
ono woman vows it was the knowledge of
this that gave birth to that succinct phrase,
"the total depravity of "inanimate things."
Tho worst of it is that when a tape needle ls wanted It is wanted badly. .lust as
��� a woman Is ubout to put oua petticoat, for
Instance, the tape Blips out of the band and
sho can't byjmy possibility repair damages
without a tape noedlo. If, she finds hers,
all is well. If it has taken unto itself legs,
all Is not well, and she goes tlirough throes
of, annoyance unappreciated by the .masculine mind
So, too, whon the snowy piles of lingerie
como up from the: luundry, and yards of
fresh "baby" ribbon are at hand to add
the finishing touch, it is a trial to tho
.spirit to havo the dainty garments around
for hours and finally put away rlbbonless
because no needle Is forthcoming.
. Women have beon known to resort to a
hairpin, hut it is an unsatisfactory substitute. The ribbon usually slips off of it
when it is about half way through the insertion, and, moreover, the sharp points of
the pin play liavoo with the delicate lace.
So the safety pin is a suggestion worth
knowing, and tho woman who learns this
trick of using it can let the tape needle go
its elusive way. ;.

Tnere was a s'lghl reflection In her  voce, a slight glance in Vivian's di-  rec.ion, w-uich so..mad to imply that no  friend of hers'wou.d be very welcome.  Vivian perceived it, but disdained to  reply.      Sir Arthur continued���������  "Lady Smeaion asked mo the other  day when we should see any of my  charming wife's iriends. Sho may  havo thought you had some handsome  young couoin who would fall in love  with Bora Smeaton."  "I should be sorry for him," 6aid  Valerie, ui.h a smile; "he would have  a dreary timo of it."  Hut Vivien was determined sho  ihould not, as she usually did, divert  attention from the subject of conversation.      She  turned   to  her.  "it seem., so strange, Lady Nesiie,"  she said, "that you should havo no  friends or acquaintances - of your  own."  "1 have plenty, chere fille, but none  for whom I have any particular affection. Jndeod, just' as tho sun absorbs all lessor lig-hls, so my love for  you, Sir Arthur, 'has absorbed all other   liking."  Ho was touched by tho words. Vivien  saw. in them only another proof of  her wily, deceitful manner.  Then Lady Nesiie quitted the room.  Goon afterwards Vivien lurhed lo her  father.

More than two years had passed  since Sir Arthur brought his fair,  girlish bride home. Sho had been at  lirst into-icatod with Iher power, un-  wi.ling to part with the least of-it.  She had been pitiless to Vivien. " Sho  had never spared her a mortification  or a humiliaaon. She had never  shown her the least consideration.  Lady Neslie's only endeavor had beon  to prove always tnat she was mistress  ���������so.'e and perfect mistress���������and her  triumph   had   been  complete.  Tne first check of her authority was  tho refusal' of Sir Arthur to agree to  one of her whims. She wanted a new  drive through tho park���������why, no one  couid understand, but she chose to say  that she would like it made; und, in  order to make it, some of the finest  old treos would,have to be cut down.  Sir Arthur laughed when his young  wifo  talked about her whim-.  "It must be a beautiful drive," sho  said ; "and I should like it to be called after myself���������Lady Valerie's Drive.  Then all the future Neslies would havo  something to make them think of me."  sionately craved. It would be hard,  too, on Vivien ; she has been brought  up as my heiress."  Lady Nesiie laid her arm caressingly on her  husband's shoulder.  " I do believe," sho said, "that you  love Vivien better than you love  me."  Sir Arthur laughed, but made' no  reply.  " Bo you���������tell me���������do you lovo her  best V  "The two loves aro so different, Valerie, thero can bo no degree of comparison between them. She is my dearly loved daughter; you aro my dearly-  loved wife."  But Lady Nesiie was not content.  ;She could not endure that her husband should speak so lov'ngly of the  girl whom she-detested, nor could she  endure the knowledge that in the time  to come all authority would leave hor  and pass to her rival.  " Then I must give up my pretty  plan," she said, " and be content with  the old drive. There will be no Lady  Valerie's Drive aftor  all."  " Yes, it must be abandoned. If you  wish your very pretty name to be  commemorated we will plant soma  parts of the grounds and call it 'Lady  Valerie's Pieasaunce.' Would that do  as   well ?"   .  ",It must do. I see no alternative,"  she   replied.  " I take great pride in one thing,  Valerie." said Sir Arthur,���������" it is the  first wish of yours that has been ua-  grat ified. You have been very much  spoiled,   my  darling."  And Lady Nesiie was forced to be  content, although the refusal served  only to increase her dislike . to her  rival  ST.   VITUS' CURED.

The latest Royalty who has been robbed is Prince Henry of Prussia, who,  during his visit to Siain, was " held  up," by brigands, who exacted a ransom oi two bicycles amd $1,000. That  ha is nol the only Royalty who has  suffered at tho hands of the light-  fingered community the following  coses go to prove, says a writer in an  English Exchange.  The. most   celebrated,  as it   was the  most audacious robbery on record, was  her through tblo malady, but .it left  her eys'teim.in acoinpletelyi ru'n-down  condition. This showed itself principally ini a weakness of the nerves.  In January ayarpioins of St. Vitus-  djiaice began to dhow themselves. At  first thftsn were not very prominent,  but it was not long bafore she wan  rendered altogether helpless by this  terribly malady. In a short time she  lost all control over the movements  of her hands and feet. For weeks sho  had to be carried from room to room  and was unable to feed hersolf. Her  grand-parents naturally became very  much alarmed and having tried othetf  remedies without effect, determined to  give Dr. Williams" Pint Pills a trial.  Developments showed that their confidence was not displaced. When three  boxes had been used the condition oi  the patient had improved considerably. Then Mr. Cleveland bought six  boxes   more  and   continued  their   use  asked.  DOW t  "Then;" thomyht hia daughter,  fluickly, "he iwi had sorno suspicion  hiimseif!"

We refer to the quotations of wages in other  mining districts. They are as follow/a: In California, $2.20 for 10 hours  with $19 a month for board, leaving $47  profit; in Leadville, an average of 82.50  for 10 hours ; in Nevada, S3 with $24 a  month for board ; in Arizona, an average of S3 25 for 10 hours* and $26 for  board ; in Utah the average is $2.75 for  8 hours.    Mgured out, it will be seen  ^befllMninolReview  SATURDAY. APRIL 14, 1900.  THOSE APPEALS.  With gall   only  exceeded  by  their  maliciousness the leaflet up the gulch  and the Silverlonian accuse Mr. Cliffe,  of this paper, with filing nine hundred  appeals against the election lists of the  Slocan,  for tlie  purpono of wholesale  disfranchisement in the constituency.  One of the prints asserts that tlie appeals are mostly against miners,  as  if  there ever were, nnd much less now,900  miners,   British   subjects   entitled  to  vote.in tho Slocan.   Mr. Cliffe has filed  about 100 appeals against such names  as li. H. Pitts, mayor of Sandon, E wen  A. Cameron  and Neil McDonald, and  none of them miners, that are duplicated on the lists ; about as many more  against such as H. C. Kennedy, W. S.  McLeod, F. H. Sheppard   and   A; Mc-  FarlaiTc that are known   to be dead,  some for a length of time, and possibly  n couple of hundred more, against, such  names as   Peter Annance, Eli Carpenter,   Albert G. Kerlin, etc.   that   are  known   by'many people to be out of  the country.   In every case,  where he  had   not   personal  knowledge   of the  ���������facts,   he got the best information he  could from the oldest and best posted  citizens of th'.. several towns of the district.   This i������ all the foundation there  is  for the libelous accusations of  our  confreres.   It ;s,  of course, possible in  such  a range of work that a few appeals may be made in the wrong; but  if our cotems arc as anxious to have a  proper   voters' list in  the district  as  they are to vilify their neighbors, from  r,the worst of all motives���������ma!ice���������,all���������  they have to do is to make diligent enquiry  and   if   thoy find  any  appeals  entered by Mr. Cliffe against any one  wrongly,  they will be promptly withdrawn.   Is this fair, or unfair?   It is  known  to many citizens that in  the  last elections   no less than three persons in Sandon not 011 the voters'lists  voted here and elsewhere on the names  of absentees, and no fair man can desire that opportunity   should  be left  open for repetitions of this kind.   In  short we have heard of as many as 30  or 40 personations in the last contest.  Surely our cotems will not say  it is  wrong  that its recurrence  should be  guarded against.   In most of the eastern   provinces   the   moment   a   man  leave3 a constituency to reside in another his name is subject to cancellation in thc division he has left, and is  eligible for going on in that to which  he is removed.   Care   is particularly  necessary in   this  province, where a  voter located in the most remote corner  of any constituency can vote in  any  other place in that division.    Personal  acquaintance by tlie scrutineers with  the voters is out of  the question in  most cases, which renders a clean list  the more necessary to avoid personation and other frauds.   We state now,  from Mr. Cliffe's personal inspection of  the lists with persons most capable-of  judging in   their own localities,   that  there   are   not   at   the present   time  more than 1,000 or 1,200 eligible voters  in   thc  Slocan,  and   there  are   over  2,000   names   to   the   fore,   counting  those already on and applications to  go on.   We ask the public, we   even  ask the vilifiers, if it is in the interest  of the country or of public morality in  any form that this kind of thing should  ��������� be continued ?   We understand some  other parties have filed some appeals,  but, of course, Mr. Cliffe cannot speak  of their merits, and is only responsible  for those   he has filed himself.    We  have always said, and we say it again,  the franchise is too wide for the country's welfare; but while the law stands  as it is we are desirous of  allowing  every man  to vote who  has properly  registered and is entitled to vote,   but  none others.   This does not satisfy our  confreres; honesty alone in a  voters'  list  will never serve  their purposes.  Who then is impertinent, the man who  would like a clean list or the man who  defends a stuffed one?    A  clean list  never suits a political crook.  \  We littlo know tho toil and  hardship that then who make  tlio "StaiT ol Life'* undergo.

DOAN'S Kidney Puts  cure all kinds of Bad Backs ,by restoring  the Kidneys to ..healthy action; .- :  "���������'���������Mr. Walter Buchanan,- who'.hits con-'  . ducted n bakery in Surnia, Ont.', forihe,  past 15 years,: says:        ,'  "For n .jiiiiubor of years pros-Jons to lnklnf.

It will  readily be conceded that the climate of  some of the states  compared is more  agreeable, though certainly not  more  healthy, than that of this province, and  air the living expenses are less there'  than here, as some of the papers contend, but this  is only one side of the  argument.   One  principal element in  the regulation of wages, the world over,  is the value of the laborer's output.. If  a man per day turns out more money's  worth in B. C. than he could in any of  she states compared, the owners could  afford to pay him more; but if he turns  out less, it is proof that the owner cannot pay him as much.   If it was a fact  that the law of the land compelled the  resident miners to. work for the resident owners, then the matter shouldbe  compared from more liberal premises ;  but as it does not,  the value of   the  miner's daily output must remain  an  element in fixing bis daily wages.    We  repeat that it is not enough for miners'  unions   and   miners  to   take   up the  wages paid in other countries and compare-those:-of  this, unless they   are  also in a position to show the value of  a miner's day's output is aa much to a  British Columbian as it is to the owner  of  other countries.    The world over,  there is expected by the owner a relative return for wages paid, and it is not  too much  to expect it in this'country  as well as elsewhere.   It will, we are  aware, be argued that this is not fair  logic in British Columbia, for many of  the properties are only in their prospective stage.   This  is all very  true,  and is  a main argument against our  restrictive legislation.    If the   mines  turn out exceeding.in  wealth those of  older countries, whose developed wages  are compared with ours, then our restrictive legislation   does an injustice  to our miners today ; and, if later work  shows that our mines in the aggregate  do  not equal   in wealth those ol  the  countries compared, present wages do  an injustice to the owners.   It appears  to us that the position of the unions of  this country would be much stronger,  and certainly more reasonable and just,  if they were in a shape to compare the  value of a day's output in other countries with the value of a miner's day's  output here, and reason out an adjustment on these lines.. If they cannot  do this they have no right to be either  assertive or dominating.    Justice all  around would simply lead them to consider what wages they could take here,  living  and every   other circumstance  considered, and ask for them.   If they  could not get these  wages on proper  business   representations they should  simply  go where they could get them  and leave an open field for those  who  could accent them.    Wages   can   no  more have an unalterable, unbending  value in   any  country,   regardless   of  value to employer, than can a ton of  coal or a bushel of wc.it to a producer.  Circumstances must modify the one as  well as tlie other.   It is just as reasonable for a dry goods merchant to say to  a community : ''I could sell such and  sucH'quantities of goods for such and  such prices tit such a place and I must  have''.the   same sales   and the   same  prices here, as it is for a miner to say  that because miners are paid'such and  such wages in suclvand such a country  they must, be paid  the same here because it costs him so much to live.   In  every case, and in every country, the  value of any man's, time to his' employer, in production, must be'a chief  element in determining his wages; and  if the latter are not satisfactory, while  he has freedom to go where he likes to  do,better, he must allow equal freedom  to the employer   to engxige  his labor  wherever it best suits his purpose. This  is the liberty of  any and   every  free  country.    This,   however, will he all  Greek to the Nelson Tribune.   ;       ;<  with a nursing baby has two  lives to support.

Ho scoured the  country from one end to the other in  search of cabinet ministers, and failed  to get it man of any standing or reputation.   He then made up his structure  of men never heard of before, and, consequently, with no ability.   After parading the farce before the country until endurance   became exhausted,   he  urged  his following   to call a Liberal  convention that he  might so  manipulate the party as to drag it around after  his chariot wheels.    The; convention  was called, and it refused to pass a resolution endorsing his leadership, showing that at least half the Liberal party  of the country refuses "to follow   his  lead.   This does not deter Joe.   A man  with   ordinary   sensitiveness   in Joe's  shoes would pt once go to the  lieut.-  governor and tender his resignation,  knowing he could not accomplish  the  task he had undertaken ; . but none of  this for Joe.   Neither hints nor open  declarations are of any service  to Joseph.   He now says'he is going on with  his former intentions���������to make preparations   for a generarelection.   Fully  assured that he  can never secure one-  third of the votes of the country, it has  no influence'on Joe ; he is going to  brazen it out, aud to such an end !  A farmer is known by his furrow a9  " the carpenter is known by his chips." It  takes a firm hand and a true eye to turn  a straight furrow. No wonder the farmer  wears out, spite of exercise and fresh air.  One day's work on the farm would tire  ninny a trained athlete. And the farmer  works hardest of all. The first up and  tlie last to bed, feeding his team before  he feeds himself, his work is practically  never done. Why docs not tlie farmer  treat his own body as he treats the land  he cultivates? He puts back in phosphate what he takes out in crops, or the  land would grow poor. The fanner  should put back into his body the vital  elements exhausted by labor. If he does  not, he will soon complain of "poor  health." The great value of Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical Discovery is in its vitalizing power. It gives' strength to the'  stomach, life to the lungs, purity to the  blood. It supplies Nature with the substances by which she builds up the body,  just as thc farmer supplies Nature with  the substances that build up the crops.  " I write to tell you of the great benefit I received from thc use of Dr. Pierce'* Golden Medical Discovery," writes Mr. G. B. Bird, of Dyrn-  Bide, Putnam Co., \V. Va. " It cured me of a very  bad case of indigestion associated with torpid  liver. Before I began the use of 'Golden Medical Discovery' I had no appetite; could not sleep  nor work but very little. The tittle that I ate  did not agree with me, bowels constipated, and  life was a misery to me.   I wrote to Dr. Pierce  S'viug the symptoms, and asked for advice,  e advised me to try the ' Golden Medical Discovery ' so 1 began the ute of it and after taking  four bottles I felt bo well that I went to wort;  but soon got worse, so I again began the use of it  and used it about eight weeks longer, when I  was permanently cured."

Will our neighbor please give the  public an outline of how the wages can  either be reduced or the law repealed,  even if its operation under experiment  is found most unsatisfactory, without  a strike by the men following ?. There  are some results that may always be  looked for, and repeated trouble is the  inevitable after the repeal of this law  or a reduction of wages.' A much better plan is to have, all the trouble over  at once, and end it for all time.  , While it is quite true that many of  the differences between the mine owners and the men in the Kootenay are  being adjusted permitting operations  to be begun to a considerable extent, it  is evident the country will not prosper  as it ought, to while legal restrictions  stand in the way, as at present. It is  the aim of all classes, under British institutions, to possess freedom of action  in all matters of sale and purchase of  their own property; and, of course, this  is impossible under present legislation,  and the more particularly as the restrictions were adopted for the benefit  of the politicians only. ��������� , '  A HALF-CENTURY RECORD. :  Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild Strawberry has now been in use for 50 years  _and there is nothing to equal it as a  "rapid and effective cure for bowel complaints'of young or old.

To the Editor or The Mining Review:  Dear Sir,���������-Under tbe head of Extra  Local Items, in your issue of April 7,  ,   appears an article relative to the death  of   Michael Talty,   who died   at   the  Ivanhoe rump.    Michael Talty roomed  and boarded with us  in the Hotel Balmoral from   March S  until   March 29,  and during that time, I  can say posi-'  tively that I never saw him under the  influence of liquor in  any way.    He  has also been personally known by residents of this town  for, at least, nine  months none of whom ever knew of his  /..���������'.���������being addicted  to the habit of drink-  '    ing.   Feeling under obligations to the  friends of the deceased,  to whom such  an announcement as that in your issue  ��������� referred to might be a source of ser-  .    row, I hereby submit to you this article  and ask you to give same space in your  ."���������-'������������������ next issue.  ���������, ���������Yours respectfully,  > Robert McDonald.  Sandon, April 7th, 1900: k"    .''  ��������� [We were not" acquainted   wi' h Mr.  Talty in any way1, anil; therefore, gave  our item   from  report.

At times my  heart would beat very rapidly and then  Boomed to stop boating only to commence  again with unnatural rapidity.  "This unhealthy action of my heart  caused shortness of breath, weakness and  debility. I tried many medicines and  spent a great deal of money but could not  got any help.   ������������������ <  Last November, however, I read of a  .man, afllielod like myself, being cured by  Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills. I wentf  to Roper's drug.store and bought a: box.  When. I had finished taking it I was so  much better I bought another box and this  completed the ��������� cure.

"And  why hive you not?"  i havo at    times . been half   afraid  <xKit you might accept,"    replied    I he  ���������candid young man,      "At others," he  , added,   thoughtfully  removing an  almost invisible    dust    speck    from his  sleeve,  I    have  been   much, perturbed  by the possibility ��������� oh 1 certainly the  possibility���������that you might  refuse."  "It would/ he disagreeable lo be re-  - fused,'.'   remarked  the   lady  impersonally.  "Th.it," tho gentleman jons-idercd.  "depends. If-1 was! sure I wanted  to marry you, it would un^uest ionably  bo disagreeable to bo refused."  "And you aro not ture?"  "No, very far, indeed, Ctoin being to.  At times I think I .should much enjoy tho role of Mr. Greatorex, so to  iVoak."  'But  not always?"  '.'Oh,    de-ur,,. nol���������not       nearly    always."  Miss Greatorex had a canary, which  at this junoluie began to sing with an  air of the most: uncontrollable merriment. ' Mr. Mai kbam went to a neighboring drawer and produced thence a  cloth, with which he covered the cage.  "You are not turo whether you arc  in love with me or no?" remarked the  young laxly, as the bird's indignant  silence succeeded to his previous  irrelevant  rhapsody.  Mr, 'Mai'Jchum came back- to the mantelpiece, and, having readjusted hU  backj he said in alow; voice, and looking down at the very adjacent, brown,  bent head:  ��������� "I admit 1   am   disappointed."  ahe looked ui* rather quickly.  "Bitterly.'' 1  had  no  idea   that  you  could   bo  stupid���������il>  is evidently   possible."  t; From the motion ot Misa Greatorex,  hor ht'nd ���������j as they  would say in1 the  "old , book.-:���������iuipiiod   a note   of   inter-  logMlion.

"i'erh.-ips not quite so long as that.  ��������� But certainly ever since, almost ever  since, Iiitdy Greatorex. left tho room."  The young lady laughed.  "Was my  mother  such an instance  of / George    liliiot'a    malign    prophet  standing behind    hor    daughter    and  threatening what, sho will be.'  "1 merely meant that the presence  of a chaperon U ineoinpaiiolo with  Eentiinent." >���������  "1," observed tho young woman,  "do hot mind admitting that L am  getting contused. ' You now assert  that.lor more than twenty, minutes  you have adored me'' Mr. Markbani's  .shoulders appeared fo deprecate the  exaggeration of this rhetoric,."and a  moment ago you seemed much to  doubt your love." v  "Not nt all.     That id why    1 lately  called   you stupid.    I  am  sure  that I  am in love; but I    am very uncertain'  as to whether- I    would like to marry  the beloved object."    '  Miss Greatorex laughed.  "I    admit  it    sounds, perhaps,   imp-roper.   1 merely mean that marriage  as      the    iieoeasary     .denouement   of  being what is called in  love seems to  nui' quite a    doubtful expedient."  "When there is no question of being  in love," he continued, relaxing himself by_aa short walk to the other end  of the'room and buck, "1 think marriage not a bad arrangement. It is  then merely a form of business partnership, and now that it has ceased to  lie insoluble has no special, terrors.  ' But you unit 1 have nothing to gain  by that. I am exceedingly well off,  ������o are you. 1 do not need to marry  for position, nor do you. Wo neither  of u<. need to demand blood, like Hamlet's aunt.

"What 1 .find fault wilh ii," lie  declared, witliutit very direct.y replying to her question, "that unless one  were to marry you one cou.d  not do several things one would  like. For instance, 1 would liko very  much to takci you to India.";  "When?" inquired ths young lady,  with somewhat startling deiiniteness.  "Not," he replied, "till, say, October. .India iii the middle of the  son you would not enjoy a bit.  really fear unless we do get married,  tbo. trip is impossible. All the siime,  I should love to explain the Taj (to  you, aud Shah Aiim's mosque at  Aimijedabad���������oh, and the Gol.dau Hate,  at San Francisco; it is tiresome that  I cannot take you there without  marrying you."  "You could take muinma as well,  and   Aunt  Adeliza,  perhaps."  '.'That would l.e dilferent. A superior plan for those. to Whom it commends, itself, but personally I should  not liko it' so much."  Miss Greatorex laughed. Mr. Mark-  harn left his sequestered seat 'and  took one beside, her on, the'little-sofa.  "Were you thinking," asked .the  lady, "that you" would like to take- my  hand?''      :  "1 have thought, that, before. I was  thinking of taking it. Now, if we were  married," he. continued after an interval, "this .would be my-business. It  would l>o exjiected of me.' as it itt oi a  ben 'to lay eggs, or tho Priucs of  Wales to lay corner-stones."  "And then it would cease to pleuse?"  "It would then become detestable.  And often lately I have pictured myself as riding home In the deepening  dut-k of a winter's afternoon from  hunting,, either-'with ycu by my side  or lo find you wailing for me-at home.  When T think of it f nearly tako a  hansom and come lii.ro to lay myself  at your feet."  "Why don't you??"  "For the reai-otm detailed above. I  picture being recused and the subsequent discomfort and inconvenience.  It would .'entail an entire change of  nil my plans for the rest of the , season."  "Bul. if you were not refused?"  Mr. Markliaui started.  "Oh, that certainly, struck mc us an  alternative, bul 1. did not iind it loss  alar-ming.; If I were accepted we should  probably get married; and how dull  for us both; it would' subsequently bo!

I can imagine  nothing so delightful. X have already  had you to stay at Maikham; but  then fx'idy Greatorex and .Sir Marnia-  duke came, too, and my sister came  down to do hostess.

"Yes, I thought of that: I took  that into: 'consideration,*' the young  | lady asserted, etnring full into Mr.  Ma.ikham's face with an expression he  rather failed I o understand. There  j was 'something unusual, also.about her  voice.  I'   There  wan a   slight    sound  behind  her.

Miss Greatorex leaped to her feet.  "Don't, for heaven's sake, dch'tl'*  sho cried, in a smothered voice, "It  was a lie. I did ic to see if I could  shake you at all."

The clerk at the  cigar counter handed out some fine  Havanas., Uncle Dick wee in tlie act of  taking one when suddenly hi drew back  and said.  .."What's tbe price of these?"  "Twenty-flve cents," said the clerk.  "Holy smoke 1" exclaimed Uncle  Dick. "Put 'era back; put'em back,  quick!"  "Bnt,. governor, this is my treat,'  argued the friend.

The drinking of ice water is pro-  nonnced by scientists to amount to a  real crime, and������������������ Dr. Brubaker has do-  chirod this question one cf the utmost  interest in typhoid fever. lie says that  if all water should be boiled and Altered  there would never be a case of typhoid.  'The temperature of the stomach at  the moment the ice water enters it is  about '100 degrees; the Water is (12  degrees. The chilling of and contracting of blood vessels is therefore  great, and to the ice water is ascribed  the catarrhal condition of the stomach  so often suffered from. Dr. Brubaker  says water should not be taken with a  meal to any.great extent, but that hot  water.taken before breakfast prepares  the stomach for action, stimulating the  gastric juices and washing itwjji there-  mains of the last meal. Another glass  of hot water taken between breakfast  and luncheon will be found , beneficial  and better than all drugs for curing, indigestion, since in pausing into the  blood the food products are carried along  with it. Exercise, too, is necessary to  help oh the action of the stomach.  131 ED POLICEMAN. ,'"' ���������  On a Florida ostrich, farm ono ofl the  birdB acts as watchman.

'",' Tho whoop of the red sklnnet. huntsmen  wasanwvered in ravines and canyons long  ago, when,' the prairies of tho west were  dotted with .buffalo "herds, and when thia  broad country had no homes but wljj-  wams,'no people but Indians. Tho answering halloo grew fainter, and finally  died away, leaving the hunters puzzled to  account for it. They asked their chiefs, '  and this is the explanation as tho genera- '  tions of timo have changed it. ���������    ,,  TurtJo Dove,' who lived years ago In  Bear's gulch, In the Black Hills of tho  Dakotas, had one little babe, a boy, whom  she called Saga Cock, and a girl of 5  named Ohotou. It was' her custom whon  sho daily, gathered seeds ln the valley to  curry Sago Cock about on her back, as Indians do,, but one day sho .grew so tired of  her burdon that sho laid Sago Cock, wh������  was fast asleep, under a sugebush and told  Ohoteu to watch him. Turtle Dbvo went  farther and farther down the gulch, and  while she was away an old witch came hobbling up.  : "Ohoteu, Is the little boy your brother?"  sho asked. She knew without asking that  It was Sage Cook, but' Ohoteu,, who had  been taught that witches were more likely  to carry off boys than girls, though frightened, niiswered quickly, "No, it is my  sister." Then the witch, although had  enough herself, scolded the trembling little maiden for her lie and changed hereeli  into so terrible a shape that OhotcuWaa  so frightened she could not intorfore when  tho wlich run off with her littlo brother,  taking him to her homo on the side of a.  distant mountain.  This old witch was so ugly that no man  would marry her. Sho had decided that  her only courso was to capture u husband,  and this was her reason for wanting Sage  Cock. When she. reached her cavo, she-  began transforming the baby Into a full  grown 'man.'' First she pulled at one limb,  then another, until each was the size of a  man's. Finally Sago Cock, of u man'l  nize and with a man's strength, stood.before her. She at last "had a husband. But  In spito of his size Sago Cock'in his heart  and brain was still a baby and apt to do  the same foolish things a baby would do.  Tho witch had to teach him to hunt and  . Unhand to cat dried buffalo meat.  It was not long after the kidnaping ot  Sage Cock before Turtle Dove had all th������  seeds she could carry, and returning to tho  spot where she had left her children sha  met Ohotou crying, nnd was told what  had happened.  In great sorrow, the motht-r started immediately on the long, hopeless aearoh for  Sage Cock. Her brother, Kaglo, becauHe  he was a great traveler, offered to aid her,  and, by flying ' very swiftly and without  rest, ho visited a gieat deal of territory.  But it was months before ho spied the  witch. He did not then know that tbo  man with her was Sage Cock. "   -  Bub when he told Turtle' Dovo of what  he hud seeu sho started at onco with1 him  for the witch's mountain, sure thut if tho  man was her boy transformed by tha  wicked magic of the witch ho would ntlH  recognize her voice. When the two dually  reached tho neighborhood where the witoh  had previously boon seen Turtle Dovo  climbed into a tree and cried aloud moat  mournfully, whilo Eaglp, from . another  tree, keenly watched the effect 'on Sago  Cock, who Immediately recognized the  voice and cried repeatedly to the witch, "I  hoar my motheri I hear my motherl" But  the witch only laughed and told him to  hide in the stomach of a mountain sheep  which was lying near, a trophy of .tho boy  man's skill With tho bow and arrow  Obedient, Sage- Cock crawled into tlio  aheep and tho old witch followed him.  Turtle and Eagle were puzz-led at ������h������  sudden disappearance of the two, but had  no thought of' investigating the interior,  workings of tho'' dead 'mountain' sheep.  They wandered aimlessly about for several  days, when Ehglo decided that the missiug  pair, and particularly Sago Cock, who wa������  half a baby, would noon ho go hungry they  would havo to come out of their hiding ftn  food. He killed a rabbit and hung it a������  tho top.of a innall pine tree, peeled tho tree  pf its bark and limba that it might bo  next to impossible to climb it, and then  from the branch of a groat tajiiaruck lie  watched dcvelopmentB.  It was but a few boura bofore the witch  appeared, at Eagle had expected. Alid  when alio saw tho rabbit, which wan tho  nearest food at hand, she began nwkwm d-  ly climbing the tree. So slow was sho that  Euglo, who had soun hor emerge from tha  sheep, had time to pull Sage Cock out of  the sheep's paunch and carry him off,  whilo-the witch'was grunting and Imaging tlio tree, her oyer, fixed on tho rabbit  above. Euglo carried his prize to tho sums  spot under the uagebush from which Sag*  Cook wus stolen, and so noon as Sn.je Cock,  now a man, touched tho earth he wan io-  Btantly transformed Into tho same buby Ii*  had been w-hou he had disaiipcured. A*  Eagle's tracks were washed out by rainstorms, when the witch discovered hor low  sho wag unitblo to trace him. But sho jhiw  some foatliers which nho knew were Eagle's, and at once divined wliat had imp  pun'ed.  Sho decided to go to her grandfather, a  rattlesnake, for protection and for hia aid  in uvonging hersolf.

'  A well-known ruagaziue writer has  recently stated that in matters: pertaining to the ndvai'cament of women  the Anglo-Saxon race seems to have  made greater progress than any other nationalities. In Germany women  are not permitted to fcirm political associations, while in Russia neither  men nor women can band together  in any. organization of a political nature without special consent of. the I  imperial government. In,Holland such  an act is. unconstitutional, but in  France, long before French women displayed any de-sire to siudy medicine  or obtain, a university education, I he  doors ot scholastic institutions were  thrown.open to them. And even English aud German women availed them-  seilves of the privileges of becoming  graduates of  the University of Paris.  BEES  ARE  STRONG.  Observations made to test this question showed that bees dun carry with  ease twice their weight in honey-  Several bees wore caught as they returned to their hives laden with honey,  and, after enclosing them in a little  box, they -were carefully weighed-'  When flu- bees unloaded their honey  they were again-caught, placed in the  sarnie box and weighed a second time.  This experiment showed that the beea  when laden 'wel'g'li'ed three limes as  much, as w'hen empty.
