C, SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1900.  pi-  W  FIVE CENTS.  m wm appeals.  A List of Duplicated, Dead and Distant "Electors."  Which Appeals  Are Objected to by''Our  Honest Neighbors.  After making an attack on Mr. Cliffe,  in  his  paper of the 7th,   for  appeals  against the old voters' list,  Mr. Matheson; the editor of the'Silycrtoniu'ri, in  conversation, appeared to be satisfied  with   the proceedings   that had  been  taken.   After going home and  dreaming over the situation he turns himself  inside out and then returned to   thc  charge.   The law in  the  eastern provinces is that in  every revision, when  men are found to have left certain constituencies  and gone to others,   their  -- ^narnes  are knocked off an those they  left  and become eligible   to go on  in  those  to which   they   have' removed.  The leading men of all the parties too  consider it to be their duty,, and  they  , are fully protected in it by the laws of  the land, to see that the lists are absolutely  free of repeats,   names of dead  men  and  those removed.   This is  to  prevent personations and other frauds  known  to politicians.   In the eyes of  saints like Mr. Matheson and the scribbler up the gulch all such precautions  are monstrous offences  and should be  punished by  law, and when  the law  cannot be invoked then  by torrents of  personal abuse.   On the lists used here  two  years ago   there were some   450  bogus names���������made up of repeats, Mr.  E.   M.   Sandilands'   name    nppearing  'threeXimes,. those of dead men, aliens  and persona who could not have been  expected to be present on election day.  As a result some 25 personations took  place in  the Riding, and, if the vote  had been  very close, all  the  bona fide  electors of the constituency,who put in  a month's anxiety and work," would  have had their trouble for their pains,  as the constituency would  have been  enmr-d  by   nien   whose   names   were  never on the list.

This  constitutes well on to half tlie number  of appeals entered  by  Mr. Cliffe, and  assurance is that the largest portion of  the rem..inder;o.'   his appeals will be  found to bo equally  well  founded, under a little closer scrutiny.   The Sil-  vertoniiiH says that.much of the  confusion has arisen by voters handing in  "nick" instead  of   real names.   That  print  ought to'-.know' or at least   its  editor ought to'be old enough to learn,  that no man' can vote on a  nick name,  as every voter   is liable ��������� to -be1 sworn  and, of course, can only take a declaration in his proper name.   If some people  have reasons why they should not  giye their proper names  to collectors  of votes���������they  may be  found���������withal  sufficient   to exclude  them from lists  altogether in a British possession.  Since Mr. Cliffe entered his appeals  he has found four or five in the wrong;  and ho promptly notified the collector  to cancel them, and to notify die  parties of the cancellation, so as to occasion th'o.H no inconvenience. In  conversation Mr. ClilTe informed Mr.  Matheson and others that if they, or  any other reputable residents of the  district, advise him of any more errois  they will bo corrected in good.time.  Mr. Cliffe's desire is to see every man  vote who is entitled to' vote, and no  Others. We aro quite aware that such  steps will be endorsed by.all who like  to'see fair, honest elections,and'for the  vaporings of others they will have but  little concern.  DUPLICATES.

We would suggest that all the.  other towns call meetings and select  their delegates not later than Thursday next, as the time between now and  polling day is none too long for candidates to do their work.  ,  -^   Ballad and Opera.

The Louise Breheny concert   given  here last Friday   ,was splendid in  all  respects.   Although none  of the performers was. a Patti, Albani or a Rem-  enyi they were all good, presenting an  entertainment  weak   in   none   of   its  parts.    It too often happens with'concert   companies   that   one   good   performer is made   to   do  duty  for   the  whole company.    With this it was different  each member being well up  to  requirements, though,  of course, some  winning more favor than others.;  Miss  Breheny,   after the pianist,   was,   no  doubt, the star; Miss Monroe with her  rich, mellow contralto won for herself  high favors as a second singer,  while  Miss Volga Schmoll gave much pleasure  with   her violin.     Messrs. Mentz,  and Carr appeared to much better advantage   in  the opera Martha, which  concluded  a very high class entertainment.  Joe Martin will make a tour through  the Kootenay next week on politics  beiit.  It is said Mr. Teeter, ol Slocan City,  is coming out as a labor candidate and  Mr. Cain, of Kaslo. is going to buck  the tiger in tlie interest of Joe Martin.  Next!  It is said Joe Martin will be a candidate in Victoria as well as Vancouver.  He should run in the Slocan as well, or  else send one of his able ministers to  represent us.  The Liberals of Grand Forks;, havi-  told Sniith-Curtiss that they will support h ia, for parliament,..lhe wili with- '���������'  draw from Joe Martin's cabinet. That  is a good one for both Martin and dirties..  Short Hours and Short Pay,  A Tribute From New York.  Replying to the charge that Great  Britain has been unjust to the subject  races of the empire, the New York Independent says : :  . "It would be difficult !to pack more  incorrect history or unjust charges into  a single paragraph. Tlie whole history  of the relations of Great Britain' to  Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Persia, India and  China shows it is the one power above  all othrrs on which every good cause  has relied "for support, 'nnd such a  statement as that referred to above is  untrue and unjust."  dusts at the R;co.  A chap named ;Hackef.t. from the  Coeur d'Alenes, came here some time  ago and professed to have bonded the  Donnelly group in the interest of Eastern Canadian capitalists, with whose  names, by the way, the people were  never1 made acquainted. He was the  especial champion of the eight-hour  law, and hired a number of,men working three shifts. In fact, so much was  he enamored of the eight-hour law,  that even seven hours' work would  have suited him. He is, however, now  nowhere around, and his bills are all  unpaid. The men vow they would,;  rather have put in 10-hour shifts and  got their money.  '-Bobs",Spreading His Net.  ThreeForks Klon  Whitewater Quebec  Kaslo Klon  , ,."       '     .

Another littlo occurrqnco took place  which .increased her annoyance. Sho  was in tho library one morning with  Sir Arthur and Mr. Dorman, when tho  family solicitor, Mr. Greston, was announced. Ho had coiiio from' Loiuloi1  ' on business connected with tho estate  Lady Neslio-.-received him very graciously. It'.was part of her policy to  be civil to every one. Sho nuver, Colt  sure what might happen, what friends  she might need, and sho therefore  deemed it best to conciliate all.' Sho  paid little .attention i to what was  passing until she hoard Mr: Greston  say���������  "You cannot do that," Sir Arthur  without Miss Neslie's consent."  "My daughter will consent," said  Sir Arthur. " AVe have talked tho matter over. She gives her consent on certain conditions."  " AAre shall require Miss Neslie's sig-  ��������� nature then," observed Mr; Greston.  "As heiress of Lancewood, she must  sign   these papers."  Lady  Nesiie  looked  up quickly.    Of  how little  account   she  seemed I   She  did not even know what was passing.  She  rebelled against  such a state  of  things. Surely she had a right to know  what was  going   on.   Sho  would   not  bo ignored. She wont ovor to Sir, Arthur and laid her jowolled hand on his  Bhoulder.  '':". AVhat are you doing, Arthur ." she  asked.  Sir  Arthur  looked   up  with   an  ex-  .. pression;:pf impatience.  " AAThat are . you doing t" she repealed.  " Nothing that you will understand,  Valerie," he said. "Mr. Dorman, will  you oblige mo by looking for Miss Neslio ? Mr. Grestori's time is precious.  He has to return by the ovoning  ,  train."  Tho young secretary left the room.  ���������"���������'What.business id it?" asked Lady  Valerio,  quickly.   She   was  piqued   at  Sir Arthur's  indifferent   reply.  -" Nono that you would understand,"  he  replied.  ; " Surely," said Lady Nesiie, "I. may  know as well as Vivien ?"  Sho spoke with so much pique and  bitterness that the lawyer looked up  in wonder.! Sir Arthur was. greatly  annoyed.  ' The business concerns Vivien,' not  you," he-said curtly.  Then   "miladi "   saw   that   she   had  gone too far.   She had sufficient tact  to   retrieve   any   false  step   that   she  might   make.   She   laughed���������and    iho  lawyer   thought   to-himself,  what   a  false  ring there  was in   her laugh.  "I was  only,  jesting,"  bhe  said.  ���������     .But'Sir  Arthur  was annoyed.   She  ."went back   to-he-r seat, and tho master of Lancewood  borit  his  head over  the  papers;   he   .was vexed   that  Mr.  Greston should havo witnessed the little   outbreak.  " That is a spiteful, ill-bred woman,"  thought the solicitor, "and; no matter whether her name was D'Este or  not, she is no lady."  Then Mr. Dorman returned, and Vivien  followed.  Lady Nesiie, watching with jealous  eyes, saw tho deference paid to her  by  Mr.  Greston.  "How great is the difference," she  .nought to herself, "between the-mispress'of Lancewood, and tho heiress I  He treats her with a hundred times  more deference than he treated mo."  It was bitter as gall, and wormwood  to her. Of what avail were her present paltry triumphs if this proud girl  Was ono day, to send hor from, the  scene of her victories? Sho heard Mr.  Greston explaining, asking questions;  Bhe heard him refer to a future time  -"When in your hands, Miss Nos-  lio;" she saw that eveiv work Vivien  uttered was received with deferential  attention by tho lawyer, and Sir Arthur, yet when she had spoken, her  husband  was  simply  annoyed.  "How I hate her !" she thought. "I  hate her for her beauty, which outshines mine; I hate hor for her calm,  serene pride, her patrician air, her  self-possessed manner; I hate her because she will, one day drive me from  Lancewood.  And, as she looked at her, Lady Nesiie thought to herself that she would  give all she had in the world to outrival her. Oh. if she had hut a son  ���������a son who could disphico thin girl,  a son who would tako Lancewood, who  would be. lord of the domain I If she  had but a son! And trom, her lips  camo a wild cry to Heaven that her  prayer might he granted. She pictured it all to herself, if Heaven, would  but give her a son, Sir Arthur might  perhaps just at first: feel sorry for  Vivien, but after n time (ho pride that  all men feel in a male heir���������above all,  in a son of their own���������would over-  powor all other feeling, and in a short  time he would be as delighted as herself. A son to inherit. Lancewood. hut  above all, to supplant Vivien I If she  had a son who would succeed fo tho  Abbey, then sho would never havo to  leave it. Sho -might live there always, and it would be. Vivion who  would   havo  to  go.  "It !s enough to tempt me to go  to any extreme of peril and danger,"  she thought. " In fiction, a lady who  ,desires a son and heir always buys  one and cheats hor husband. I wish  I could do that; but I dare not even  attempt it���������Vivien would be sure to  find me out. I oould deceive .Sir Arthur easily, but I could not deceive  hor." ���������   ,-  Then she began to meditate on the  feasibility of adopting- a son���������of pretending it. was her own, and passing  It off as such. She did not lack invention, but she lacked courage to carry  out her plans.  ,-jt. son���������a son 1 If ever a woman  prayed wildly, madly, passionately for a -child, it was Lady Nesiie. Not  that sho loved children ; hers was not  ono of those sweet womanly natures  that delight in tha love and affection   of  a. child.    She   merely  wanted  a child as an instrument of vengeance.  Sho would far rather have purchased  one and passed it off as her own than  havo 'been the mother of one. No  swoot instinct of maternal lovo actuated hor, 110 desire for something to  lovo which should bo all her own. Sho  .lesired a child simply that it might  be an ougino ��������� ot vongoanco, that it  might bring destruction on the proud  head of her rival. Sho had now been  married moro than two years, and as  yet, Heaven had beon doad to her pas.  sionate prayer for a child.

They were Vail,'out on. the lawn one  day, Lady Valerio preferring Lancewood to a season in town, watching  j the tame doves which fluttored in the  sunlit balmy air. : Valerie, who was  silting near her husband, sighed deeply; then after a few minutes, she'sighed again. Sir Arthur looked anxiously at her.  "AVhat is  the  matter,   A"alerie?"  he  asked.     "Why are you sighing?"  "I do hot know," she replied.  "You do not seem quite like yourself,  'my darling. Do you know what I    was  ! thinking about?"  "No,'' hhe replied, listlessly.  I' "Last May," he said, "you gave six  picnics���������only imagine; six picnics in  on-a month!���������you had a picnic mania���������  and this May you have not given one."  "No," she. replied, "I have not, Miss  Smoaton was reproaching me yesterday."  "AA'hai is tha reason, Valerie," asked Sir Arthur.  i "I do not know," she replied, indifferently; "I do not feol so full of life  this year as I did last."  j Sir Arthur looked anxiously, at her,  I "Not so full of life, Valerie? Surely  iyou are not ill?"  j "I do not know," she repeated; "I  only know that tho world seems quite  different."  I    IIer Lone of voice was despondent; it  'had  lost  its  joyous   ring.   Looking at  I her, ha .saw that, the bright smile had  died  from her "face.      Tho  master, of  'Lancewood grow  anxious.  j    "Shall we have a picnic next week?"  he asked.     "Gayton's Craig would be  a    charming place  to  visit; you have  not been thero,   1 think."  "L do not feel equal to it, Arthur,"  said Lady Nesiie, wearily -���������and when  it 'huppou'ed- that "miludi" was unequal to anything in tho shape of  pleasure, her husband felt suro thero  was something amiss.  Vivien, pi-ejudicod as she was, could  not help seeing that the young wife  dropped and faded daily.  "Valerie," said Sir Arthur.one morning, "you live losing all your color.  You look like a lily, and I prefer to  see you liko a rose. AV'ould you like  to go any where for change of air?"  j No; shu preferred remaining, at  j Lancewood.  I "It is the purest air in Kngland,"  said Mr. Dorman, who was present.  "That it is. But perhaps Lady Nesiie  would  be   benefited  by a-change.'  "1 shall not leave Lancewood," said  Valerie, decidedly; and whon she spoke  so her husband knew that all further  discussion  was useless.  On another day ho was distressed  and anxious about hor. Sho had  beon the life and soul of the house;  sha had been used to flit like a sunbeam from one room to another; sho  was always singing, laughing, or  tulking; no one had ever seen her  dull, out of spirits, or even quiet. But  on-a morning Sir Arthur; going unexpectedly into her boudior, .found her  sitting with her arms laid on the table  and her -lace ��������� hidden on them, her  whole attitude so full of despair, so  utterly despondent, that he was, first  startled and then .frightened ��������� what  could have happened to his gay young  wife?   .���������.-��������� '      ,:      ���������,,,-���������'  "Valerie, my darling, what is it?"  he asked, tenderly.  ,She raised a colorless face to his.  '���������'I" do riot; know; I feel very ill,  Arthur," she, continued, in a low,  frightened voice; "do you think that 1  am going to die?"  "Xo die!" .he repeated, in alarm. "1  pray Heaven not. Why, my darling?  What a question! 1 see no sign of  death about you. AVhat makes you  think of such a thing?"  "Bi.oau.se 1 .eel so ill, so strange,"  she   replied.  " Valerie," said her husband, gravely, "I shall send for a doctor."  "No," she urged, with a shudder; "I  dread doctors; I am afraid of them;  tliB) very sight of one makes me feel  ill."..  "But something must be done," said  Sir Arthur.  She rose, and he was horrified to see  how weak and ill she seemed. She  looked at him, trying to smile her old  bright, gay, defiant smile; but the  effort was  a miserable one.  "I will not have any doctor" sho  said; "let me die a natural death, if  I am to die at all. I feel bettor ��������� I  shall soon be better; perhaps I havo  over exerted my.se.lj."���������and on Lhe subject of her health she would not say  another word.'  That same evening���������a wild, boisterous evening���������when tho wind was wai-r  mg round, the Abbey and bending the,  tall trees in the park, Sir Arthur had  a serious fright.      Dinner    was  over,  and the baronet und    his    wife    and  daughter   wero   in   the  drawing-room.  Vivien was singing.     Lady Nesiie had  i lain down on a couch, as though tired.  | She rose to find a novel that sho had  j been reading, and when ,   ie was hali-  i way across the room sho fell, with a  [ low cry, to the ground.      Sir Arthur  hastened to raise her, crying out to  Vivien for help. Thoy laid hor down  again on the little couch, and were  startled at her whi.te face and lips.  "Papa," said Vivion, "1 should not  let anything prevent my sending for a  doctor, if 1 were in your place. I am  afraid. Lady Noalie: is seriously  ill."  "Late as it is," decided Sir Arthur,  "I will send directly;" and a. servant  was dispatched at once to Hydewoll in  search' of Dr. Armstrong.. When, ho  arrived Lady Neslio was better, and  laughing at the fright she had given  them.  "1 havo never fainted bofore," sho  said; "it is a most curious sensation,  ���������I do not thin,k that dying can bo  much worse,"  bhd received Dr. Armstrong kindly,  although she felt annoyed ut his being sent for.  "1 am better," she ��������� said. "I havo  over-exerted -myself, doctor. I will  not be an invulid, 1 refuse absolutely 1"  '; But Dr. Armstrong looked gravely  'at her.  "I should liko to speak;-to you," he  said, "if'you will permit 010"���������hearing  which Vivion withdrew, leaving thu  doctor and his refractory patient, together.  If was a1 long interview, and at  Its close Dr. Armstrong quitted tho  room with' an expression- of anxiety  blended with amusement on his faoo.  "There is nothing serious, I hope,  doctor," said Sir' Arthur.  "No," ho replied; "but allow mo to  say, Sir Arthur, that Lady Nesiie is  one of tho most extraordinary patients I   havo ever attended."  The baronet smiled.  "I can believe it," he said. "Lady  Nesiie has a great dread of Illness,  doctor. I am' glad you think there is  nothing .very, wrong. Would, you  advise change of air"."  "No; let her rest and live mora quietly���������havo less gayety and keep earlier  hours���������she will soou be well then."  The doctor might have thought  her ladyship a wonderful patient' if  he had seen her as she appeared after  he left her. , She was- standing, by  the fire, a flush1 on her face, her eyes  flashing; her,, red lips curved ln a  strange smile.  "Can it be truel?" sho said to herself.  "Is my prayer really answered? -Can  it be true!? I will not say one word  to them until I am quite su.ro. And  if the doctor does���������but he will not  ���������he dares not, now that I huve forbidden him. Can it be that my prayer is granted'? Now for my victory���������  now for my revenge! There shall bo  Lady Aralerie's Drive without asking  Miss Neslie's .consent. Miss Neslio  will. not always ba able to snoer at  me���������1������ look at me with oalm proud  eyes, as though I were immeasurably  inferior to her. She will not bo able  to live at the Abbey , while I am sent  from its doors. She will not be consulted again,- while I am told indit-  ferontly that it is upon business. I-'do  not understand.. Farewell to Misa  Neslie's heiress-ship and grandeur if  this bo / true! But. T will koep my  secret yet awhile."  "You are bettor, Valerie," said Sir  Arthur,' entering the room and going  up to her. "You havo found some of  your roses again. I was terribly  frightened about you."  "I vvas frightened myself;" sho admitted^, laughingly; "but I am better  now."  "Now, Valerie," said- her-husband,  "you must listen to reason. I know  you- will not be willing' to submit to  what 1: am going to say, but I must  enforce i obedience. You must, live  more quietly���������you must havo loss society���������you' must keep earlier hours���������  you must go out less. AVe never have a  quiet day at home. You have carried your love of gayety a little too  far, and you have made yourself quite  ill."  To his surprise, she received tho little  lecture very  meekly.  "You are right," she returned���������"I  see my folly, and I mean to bo different'. You shall sue that J will follow  your aldvico, Arthur."  "What a docile little wife! You may  develop into a patient Grisoldu soon,  Valerie."   "'.���������'���������.''���������     . .    .;'  To his great surprise, he found ilia t  she kept her word. Sho refused half  tha invitations that came. She said  nothing more about.giving dances or  balls." She was delighted with the  -change; even Vivien was compelled to  acknowledge the improvement. Lancewood became more like itself again.  Later on Sir Arthur proposed going to  Loudon for a short period, but to his  intense surprise Valerie resolutely  declined.        _  "You may go if you like," she said.  "I have had enough of gayety; I  Want to be quiet at  homo."  "I shall not leave you," declared Sir  Arthur. "London has no attraction for  me���������I would far rather be at Lancewood. But there is Vivien, sho ought  to  have  a change." '     -    "  It happened most fortunately thut  the difficulty was soon solved. Lady  Smeaton was about to visit town mid  hearing that the Baronet and Lady  Neslio wished Vivien to go, but were  unable-' to accompany her, she invited  Miss Neslie to join herself and her  daughters; and 'Vivien consented.  Then, when the golden , promise, of  summer filled the land, Lady Neslio  told her husband the secret she had  been keeping from him; and the secret  was, that; before many months had  passed, there would be given to her the  sweetest; gift Heaven can give ��������� the  gift of a  little child.

There are 120,000 barmaids In England, and at various times sundry folk  have dreamed of having ,a'law passed  which should prevent the employment  of. girls as bartenders, says a London  letter. But tho efforts in this direction havo hid Utile public support,  partly because an English institution  is not easily sot aside, and partly because of a goneral conviction that the  girl behind the bar is not necessarily  a bad lot. So a 11 attempt in a new  direction has boon begun on behalf: of  the barmaid. Instead of being told  that she is probably n sinner, or soon  will bo one, she is merely invited to  come and take, tea on 1 Sunday afternoon with a woman/who doesn't intend to proach to her arid who would  liko to be a good friend, and, to quote  h'erbwn words, would like "to, give her  a bit of blue,sky to see."  Mrs. Cholmeley, ihe leader of this  mow Work is wealthy, and ono of the  honorary workers in the Church Army,  tho organization with which tho  Church of England is unintentionally  rivalling Gen. Booth's Salvation Army.  She has received contributions from  tho Church Army and from other sources and engjged four or five girls who  have been trained as mission workers  to help hor. The work, ot course,  makes it necessary that the barmaids  should bo visited at their places of  business, for these girls work from 7  in th-e morning until half-past 12 oat  night, and, naturally, Mrs. Cholmeley  has found it difficult to enlist women  ofber own social position to undertake  ���������making the rounds of such pliioes. Another drawback is that there aro really  only about tour hours in the day when  this work can be attempted, lor the  gills ure too busy with customers from  12'o'clock' u'nllil ii or 3 in the afternoon,  and even busier all the evening. in  spile of these difficultieB, Mrs.. Cholmeley an<l hor assistants havo succeeded  in the last six months in visiting -1,0X10  barmaids and talking wilh them. They  lake with theml a lit'tlo letter, inclosed in uu envelope, attractively print-  fid and as little liko a tract as possible; written simply-yot calculated to  interest tho girl who receives it and. to  make her think.  Some of the larger public houses employ as many as twenty-five barmaids,  ami in others the girls are kept busy  I from morning until night, but in every  I case tho workers try to havo a few  I words with each of thorn, as well as  to hand theui the letters. Every letter  is signed with Mrs. Cholmeley's name  |and boars her address, and the girls  I are. told that she is at homo every Sunday afternoon and will be pleased to  have Lhe-m take tea with her whenevor  they can,''',. At those teas she sometimes has three or four girls, some-  fiiiuos only- 0110, more often nono. Con-  ���������siclering that the girls' only breath-  ling li'ine iu the whole week oonies on  ! Sunday afternoon aud then is only five  ,'ltiours long, it Is not strange that Mi'B.  jC'holmeley's little receptions are not  bolter patronized.'  Mrs. Cholmeley says that there are  Cnaiiy more good barmaids than evil  Jones.; The girls' usually outer the  business' for the simple, reason that almost all tho other lines open to women are paid so wretchedly that tho  $...60 a week, with meals, that barmaids receive seems like, a "fortune.  .Then, there is noth'ng degrading about  the work, for every barmaid is called "Miss." ��������� In their visits, Mrs.��������� Cholmeley and her girls havo discovered  four barmaids who wero. foimierly  teachers' in Sunday schools, and several who keei) -a little box on the bar  and make men who swear in their  presence drop into, it a penny, whenever they offend. One girl collected  ������1, and "seat it to a charity, fund.   .-  As for the girls the great majority  of ihem would leave in a moment if  they, could make as much money else-  whore in a more elevated calling. The  hours are terr.bly long; they.are obliged to stand all through them. . There  is dirty work to be done in the morning, sometimes insults to put up with,'  'und always the temptation to drink.  Mrs. Cholmeley says fewer of them  yield io this temptation/ than would  bu expected. Tho girls are usually related to the proprietor or his friends  and some of them cuter tho business  as early as the age ol\ 14. Thoy find  their husbands in the public houses. If  they don't get married and retire they  die young, the result of tho hard work  and long hours. At least, that was  what. the. girls said wheii askod what  became of the old barmaids.  AVhat. Mrs. Cholmeley hopes to accomplish eventually she hardly knows.  Her ideal is, finally, to divide-the city  oi' Loudon up into districts and enlist  women workers enough to look after  tho girls rather carefully, in case any  of. thorn is ill (.or in trouble, then to  find a-woman of some prestige in each  of those districts who would receive  the girls on Sunday or whenever they  could come and counsel them if they  needed it. At present ������5,000 has been  spent in the work.  'THE SMALL-MINDED MAN.  ���������Well, said the Small-Minded Man, I  have found out another woman's age.  How did you do it ? asked tho listener.  .Why, I asked hor suddenly how  many years it was since 1873.  But how did you find out her age?  She figured it up subtracting fivo  from  thirty-two  before  she  thought.  From Pain to Health.  A CHIPPEWA LADY TELLS A STORY  OF SUFFERING AND RELEASE.

To a correspondent of! the St. Catharines Star, who  recently called at Mr. Schabol'a home  Mrs. Schaboi related the following  story :���������"Years ago imy physician  told me I had: heart dinease. I have  been troubled at intervals with palpitation and sevore pains, and sometimes my heart would almost cease  to beat. I would become dizzy, rest-  loas and frightened. At othor times I  slept badly und had troublesome  dreams. J lingered in this state until last winter when exposure to cold  affected my kidneys and completely  prostrated me. The spring came,  whon my complaints were further  aggravated by stomach trouble. I  loathed food and could realize' that I  was. daily growing weaker. My  physician's treatment would sometimes slightly benefit mo, then again  I 'was wurse than ever. Finally, after all hopo was apparently gone and  a large sum of money, had beoD  thrown away for medicines that did  me no good, a friend strongly advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink PUIb,'  two boxes of whioh were brought me  at the beginning of the summer of  1899. I used them and- to my joy noticed improvement. I continued the  use otf thc. pills faithfully until I had  taken eight boxes. I am now able to  attend to all, uiy housework, feeling  1 entirely cured;, I have never had bet-  '��������� ter health than I am now enjoying,  and since discontinuing; the pills hays  had no symptoms of the old complaints. 1 feel that I am under lifelong obligations for tho benefit I have  derived from Dr.'{Williams!

APRIL 21, 1900.  THE CONCENTRATORS AND THE  FLUME.  Our city council is now face to face  with the probable injury  to the flume  by the tailings  from the Star and the  Ruth concentrators.   Our readers will  remember that when  the Ruth people  were applying  to the city for exemption  from taxation, The Review suggested the taking of an   undertaking  from the company, in consideration of  exemption, to take care of their' tailings so the\T could not become in any  way a burden on  thc city.   That  was  the time  the matter should have been  looked after, but that was the time our  suggestion, which fitted  the situation  , exactly, was ridiculed in some quarters  where it should have found favor.  Sandon  is 60 situated that the city  cannot  afford to   ignore thc   convenience of either   miners, mine owners  or mining industries���������all roust   have  liberal treatment from the city, if the  place is to prosper according to its opportunities.    Concentrators  and  mining interests cannot be impeded by the  ��������� city's intt. rests in less important ways.  There are now but three things to consider in this connection, as a matter of  economy to the city, as the flume must  be  maintained   for   natural   reasons :  Frst, the cost to the city,as at present;  second, the cost  of  an iron  pipe  the  length  of the flume to carry  off the  tailings by flushing, and third the cost  of collecting the, tailings before entering  the flume   and  their carriage  by  team or otherwiss out of harm's way,  after the streets are all  fully  graded  by them.   Estimates of all three propositions should be made by   a  competent   man ' and   the least  expensive  should be adopted, for the payment of  which tlie mining companies involved  might contribute.,   As the Star was in  operation in its present way before the  flume was  built and  before lhe  city  ���������was   incorporated,   the    matter   then  might  be very difficult in interfering  with its present operation by any process  of   law.   As, again, it was  fully  understood   the   Ruth would have to  empty  into tho creek and the flume,  when- the exemption   was granted, it  appears reasonable that estopments or  injunctions could now have but little  force.   The company might be made  to contribute a share  towards keeping  up repairs, but it does not appear reasonable that it could be compelled to  do more.   Its present operations could  not certainly be stopped by any process  of law.  Hale Old Age.  Sad to see people  advanced in years  sUxIeringfromBack-  ache, Lamo Back,  Urinary Troubles  and Kidney Weak-,  jiess, A halo old  age, free from pains  and achos, can only  bouttiiinod by keeping the kidneys right aud the blood pure,  DOAN'S KIDNEY PILLS  befriond tho aged by freeing them from  pain und correcting- all Dibordors of the  kidneys and Urinary System. .    ���������  -Mr. Thomas Asi), an old resident of  Renfrew, O:it.,'spoko as follows:  "I am 72 yeaia of age, and have been  troubled for 11 number of years wilh pains  across my back. "When I would sloop  over it gave at;oiu/.\ue; pain to'Btraigliteii  up. I was so bad that I could scarcely  walk. I have taken many kinds of medi ���������  eines, but got nothing to help me. Being  recommended to try Doan's Kidney Pills  I got a box. After taking threo doses I  noticed a great change for tlio bettor,  and I can now got around as smart as f������  cricket. I can split my own wood aad am,  in fact, just like a new man. "  Appeals have been sent in against  592 names on the old list and but 260  of the number are miners. Some 332  belong to other callings, among them  being bankers, mine owners, merchants, hotel keepers, tradesmen and laborers, and yet the leaflet wants to convey the impression that it is an attack  on the miners. Tho idea is simply to  get off the list all names of men who  cannot be expected to vote in the constituency, and thtiB prevent personations. No fair man can object to this;  but, of course, unfair men and cranks  will object to Anything. Any reputable man leaving work at this office ol  unfair appeals against thc old list will  havo the necessary corrections made  on the spot.  to give it. Voting for Joe is endorsing  a man that will not be accepted bv  their leaders either at home or abroad.  Some day the Liberals hope to contest  the province with the Conservatives,  and endorsing Joseph now would only  be throwing a 5tumbling block in their  own way for many a day lo come.  Their plan now is to join the Conservatives in effectually settling the enemy  of friend and foe alike.  It would not be out of place, and it  might be of some service, if papers like  the Nelson Tribune would now drop  their eight-hour agitation. It is for  the present the law of the land. Mine  owners and miners are accepting it  that way, for the time being, and it  would be well to discontinue agitation.  The incoming parliament or the results  of experience and trial of the law may  suggest changes later on,and if they do  they can then be considered on their  merits." Dishing it up now every day  can only continue-strife'and, bad blood  that if; is to.thc interest of all to bury  in the past. To be plain we know that  later incidents will suggest changes in  thc present law, bu1: when they are  brought forward is time enough to consider their merits before the country.  JOE'S GALL.  After being repudiated by the Liberals of B. C. in the Vancouver convention Joe tries, to convince the Liber tls  of tho provinee that he has tho endors-  ation of the Federal Liberals by a perusal of a letter,.from Premier Laurier  which we here insert:  My Dj.ar Maktin,���������I have had for  some days your lat>t letter. I did not. answer immediately because your request  required some consideration. On the  whole 1 have come to the conclusion  that. I should nut interfere in any way  at all. This will not surprise you after  receiving my first fetter, f realize the  force of keeping'party lines, but the  reasons which I have given you in my  first letter must make it plain to you  that if-party lines are to be maintained, I will expect that the policy of the  Federal Government will be respected.  There are no party lines in your programme, and I appeal to you that it  would have been easy for you to give  way to the policy which we have enunciated. At' the same tims, whilst I  cannot interfere in your behalf, I will  not interfere against you. This I do  for many obvious reasons, and, moreover, I cannot forget the voice of  friendship. I would feel much more  pleasure if I could write to you in a  different way, but it is preferable that  you should know exactly where I  stand ; and if I do not interfere actively  in your behalf you will acknowledge  that the lault is not mine. Believe me,  ��������� as ever, my dear Martin, yours very  sincerely,  (Signed)     WILFRED LaURIER.  Even this, it will be seen, was not  secured until Joe had sent a few bulldozing epistles to the premier. Credulous indeed must even the Liberal be  who will accept that as a letter Sir  Wilfred would write to a political  leader who. had his confidence and support. It would be very interesting to  the public if Joe would now give to  it copies of the letters he wrote to  Sir Wilfred imploring his countenance,  and that brought forth ituch a reply.  Joe need not look for the endoraation  of the B.C. Liberals ; they cannot afford  Whether  it is for   the best or   the  worst, it is an absolute certainty  that  we are  bound  to have Federal  party  lines in  our provincial politics.    We  have   all  along contended   that they  have no applicability, but at tho same  time, there appears to be no other reasonable means of holding our   public  men to principles.    A number of them  combine  on certain   principles today,  tomorrow   they   separate,   and.  they  claim it is because of changes in the  principles   that led to  their  combina-  l-'on.   This  often  results in most   demoralizing consequences. .When men  unite on Federal lines, this changing is  reduced to a minimum���������it is  not easy  for a' representative   to show why he  changes from Grit to Tory.   A man in  the House, or out of it. may differ with  his party on certain issues, just as the  Liberals of B. C. differ today on thc advisability of accepting Joe Martin as a  leader, and may vote on that one issue  as they think best, without shaking off  party alliances ; but when they, though  having coalesced   on   undefined   principles, differ lor once, they are likely to  differ altogether.   It is not in the public interest when leagues are so easily  broken.  What has the gulchite, that has been  abusing The'Reviow all along for saying that OhaWes Wilson was not in  favor of thc present eight-hour law, to  say to the following excerpt from that  gentleman's speech as reported by the  Nelsoii/rribune of Thursday, 19th:  "Charles Wilson, leader of the Conservative party, dealt very generally  willi provincial matters in his speech  last night on the party platform. He  favored .the eight-hour law, but not the  present one, and.proposed what he considered a perfect solution of the Chinese, question by the insertion of an  anti-Uhinese labor clause in contracts,  not in acts or private bills.  We repeat that there is not a party  leader in the province to-day in favor  of the present eight-hour law.  Don't forget  to use Doctor  Pierce's Favorite Prescription  for that backache.

Sr*' *'  A WORD WITH   HUSBANDS,  81to  Your Wife a   Littlo   Praise   Onco lo  A-wUilo and Seo How It Works.  "If husbands only knew, or, if know  Ing, only cared, how very much thaij-  words and manners affect the temperature of tho home world, they would  never by word or deed leave it en  shrouded in gloom," argues Mrs. A.  M. Marriott in au article entitled  ''Praise Yonr Wife" in Woman's Home  Companion. "To most wives the husband is the sun arotiud which every  .thought revolves. Thero is scarcely an  Instant in which his presence is noL felt  ns she goes about her wurk or oven when  at rest. If she is preparing the meals,  tho way John likes this or that or some  remark ho has mado about some article  of food is recalled to mind. If she looks  about her, she sees bis hats aud coats  hanging on the huoks, and the hats invariably wear the } same expression  John's faco wore when he loft in the  morning���������a jolly, good humored look if  he went away pleasant; if angry, a  ��������� gruff, defiant, attend to your own business air takes the place of tho so lately  gentle pliablo shapes in felt and fairly  bristle with wrath over some trifle, but  still enough to obscure the sun iii tho  littlo world for many a weary day, perchance, ere it is seemingly forgotten.  "There is no .true woman but will re/  pay her husband ovor and over again  for kind,-thoughtful troatment. He is  ready to call hor childish, aud sue may  seem so to him; hut ono thing is sure���������  D woman never forgets.  "All littlo deeds of love or thonght-  fuluoss sown by his hand yield a certain  nnd abundant harvest. She may love  her homo better than any other spot on  earth, yot she sometimes gets so weary  of tho daily routine of never ending  duties that fall to her lot that she cannot help au occasional feeling of envy  for those who havo moro timo for recreation, for going abroad, for all tho little  things dear to tho heart of every woman,  but which the storn hand of duty most  effectually debars her from enjoying.  Still, for all that, she would not for the  whole world ��������� exchange places, oven if  eho could, with any other woman, leaving homo and John���������clear old John���������as  the price of her freedom from care.  "If your wife has been a faithful and  true wifo to you, toll her ������o. Do not  think it lowers your manliness any to  let her know that sho still has a place  in your affections. Sho has toiled early  and late for you and yonr children,  through sickness and health, and solf  'denial has grown to bo her motto. It  takes but littlo from her loved one3 to  mako her happy, so do not begrudge her  a word of praiso now and thon as her  just reward, and of far more value to  her starving heart than gold. Thoro aro  somo things which money- can never  buy, and wounds which it cannot heal,  but love lovels all obstacles, overcomes  all difficulties and immeasurably sweetens life."    Tlio Basis of Credit.  A mau'd past record, with but few  exceptions, should determine the quos-  'tion of his eligibility for credit in .tho  future. If he has been slow pay in .the  past, he will probably bo slow pay in  his next purchases. If ho has boen  .prompt and satisfactory, he will likoly  be the same again. As an instance I  might mention a case ���������which recently  came und or my notice. A trader who  had gradually got to be slow and unsatisfactory was compelled to assign. His  failure was not due to any misfortune,  such as fire or flood, but seemed the  natural consequence of his incompotonce  and lack of management. A wholesale  houso which had been supplying him  lost heavily, but compromised, and as  he continued they still sold him, but on  80 days' timo. For awhile he promptly  attended to his payments, but after a  time ho got slower and slower, and as  he was a liberal buyer and his purchases  were allowed to accumulate he soon  owed a bill far larger than his means  ���������would warrant. As this dragged along  for somo years a compromise was granted upon this indobtednoss also. Still he  clung to his old creditor and again ordered goods, promising.,, to .send the  money within 80 days. But his past  record was too much even for so lenient  a creditor. He was told plainly that he  ���������would got no moro goods on credit and  that if ho ordered anything cash must  accompany tho order in evory case.  Now, a man of this stamp is a positive  detriment to a man who pays his bills.  Aftor thus being refused credit by tho  ���������old houso he will try and' got it elsewhere and no doubt will succeed. But  if his record is kuown it should be a  .final answer to tho question of granting  him oredit.���������Hardware.  A Great Polyglot.  Solomon   Ciosar    Malan    habitually  ��������� conversed with his children in Latin,  but on his. deathbed, when Solomon,  his son, begin to recite a psalm  in   tli6  ���������familiar Vulgate of his youth, the dy.  ing man, scholar to tho last, muttered,  "Non  ita,   noniia! Hobraice;" so the  , son repeated it in Hebrew.  He  could, for  that matter,   just  as  ���������well have said it in Coptic or ' Chinese,  ��������� for to him all tongues came naturally.  At 18 he could write in   18  languages,  ��������� oriental and European, and among his  published works  we  find   translations  ���������from the Arabic, Persian, Syriao, Ethi-  -opio, Hebrew, Coptic, Armenian, Georgian, Mongol, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Greek, Russian, Welsh and Goth-  ia He is said- to have learned to speak  Armenian fluently in . a fortnight, and  ..be preached in Georgian to a Georgian  .congregation in the cathedral of Kutais.  jrasrg-agxgxixff^^  ������  .When 1 started out thirty years  ago as a young doctor, in treating  weak men I gave drugs. I didn't  know any better.   But when J found  I there was really so little reliance to  be placed in medical treatment I  commenced to cast about for other  remedies.  One time I experimented with the  galvanic current of electricity,  and  from   that   to  tho   present day 25  years���������I have not written a prescription for weak men. I have demonstrated the fact that a general treatment is required - to regain lost  strength^ because these troubles come  on slowly and involve not alone the  nervous system and glands, but the  j Heart, Stomach, Kidneys, Liver,  .{ladder, &c.  Electricity, I found, came.up to  the requirements of general treatment, because Electricity is strength'  or nerve force, and is supplied tho  system with this lacking element; it  built up slowly but surely tho whole  tion, without a particle of danger.  In the beginning 1 gave a battery  treatment, but 1 soon found that, a  home self-appliance was needed. I  knew then that a portable battery  was required���������one which would give  plenty of electricity and at the same  time be light and convenient. This  led me to invent a chain of cells  which was worn around the patient's  waist.  The first chain of cells was the  beginning of what has developed  into my 1899'model Dr. Sanden  ELECTRIC BELT  with suspensory, the great treatment  for' weak   men.

Tho three great vital factors  of this body of ours are the  heart, the nerves and tho blood.

MRS, JOBSON'S GENEROSITY,  ���������At neon tho other day Mrs. Jobson  received, per messenger boy, a large  fragrant bunch o������ double violets, with  Mr. Jobson's calling card attached  thereto, and his affectionate felicitations scrawled on the bauk ot the  card.  Mrs. Jobson couldn't understand it.  Sho turned the violets upside down  and sideways, and studied them from  null points of view. Then she scrutinized the card aa if it were written in  Arabic and the job of translating it  were  difficult  and slow.  " Violets I" said she to herself, wou-  deringly. "And from Mr. Jobson!  Let me recail how many years it has  been���������"  Bui  she  couldn't  recall.  "I wonder if Lhere. is anything the  matter?" she mused. "Violets! And  from Air.  Jobson ."  Another messenger boy rang the  bell about 3 o'clock and handed Mrs.  Jobson a two-pound box of chocolate  creams, nicely done up. Resting on  top of the candies was Mr. Jobson's  calling card, his affectionate felicitations scrawled on the badk of the card.  Mrs. Jobson, flustered by 'ihe receipt of the violets, was now simply  flabbergasted.  "There's something wrong; I'm  sure thoro is 1" sho said excitedly. "It can't be that he's dr���������.

Goodness gracious mc, there surely  is  something  wrong 1*'  Thus Mrs. Jobson woiked herself up  tu a high pilch of nervousness. Violets and candius from her husband all  in one day: It was all very delightful���������but it wa.s too delightful. Mrs.  Jobson had a foreboding of trouble.  However, she put on her j>rel tiest tea  gown, pinned the violets thereto and  waited anxiously for Mr. Job.son's familiar  step.  Mr. Jobson got home at the usual  hour. He wore an expression of benignity as ho entered the vestibule,  where Mrs. Jobson. ia saluting him,  found out that tie hadn't drank a  'J rep.  " Why, you dear, oJd extravagant  thing you!" sho said to. him. " I nev-  ei saw such lovely violets in all my  life, and as for those candies, why���������"  "Tut, tut, little ono," snidMr. Job-  ������on, amiably, " don't speak of 'em. Just  happened to think to send "em up to  yo-u, you know, anil they're no more'n  you deserve at that. 1 tell you what,  if I were a rich man, you'd have .ivory thing- "  IJut Mis. Jobson scarcely heard  what he said. "Littlo one I" she was  saying to herself. " Why, it's been  years   and  years   since   he "  "Have you been (.peculating in  ..looks, my dear I" Mrs. Jobson, asked  him,  timidly.  "Stocks? Who, me? Well. I'd like  to see myself I" said Mr. Jobson. good  naturedly. "No, luii'am ; no blocks  for  me 1"  Mm. Jobson looked him over carefully, but he w:m all right, so far as  she'could see. I/is extraordinary good  nature sat on lilm as naturally as if  that wero hi������ evei'y-day manner, lie  tiicpped out into l lie hull for a moment, got a package thai he had  dropped on the rack'iit coming in and  opened   it. -...-.  "Happened to remember, as I was  coming ^ up, that yo-u ' wu tiled some  books," said Mr, Jobson, in an offhand way. " Brought you up a few.  Hope you'll like 'em."  Mrs. Jobson took the books aud looked them ovor in a dozed (kind of way-.  They ware just: the hooks she had  been wanting for a long while���������all  good, .substantial editions, loo. She  couldn't refrain from giving ��������� liii.n a  hug.  "Why yo-u generous. silly old  t-tiing I" she said. " Just lhe books that  I've been pining Cor for ages. Won't'  you please tell mc w.lin'i it is all a bum.  ���������w'tat I've done to deserve all these  lovely   pre���������" .  " Never you mind," said Mr. Jobson,  amiably, "I only wish I were as rich  as some of these pinlieads that.don't  know what to do with their money ���������  if you wouldn't have* thumb rings and  automobiles, and a couple o' thousand  silk skirls, and���������oh. by the way that  - reminds mc.

"Why   you   dirlinjjr  old���������" .I  "By the way, you might aa well  log out in your best to-night," said  Mr. Jobson, interrupting her. "Got n  couple of seats for the theater, and  after the show we'll have a bite at���������  well, any place you want'to go. We'll  just make a little, night of it. Bow's  "that?1" i  Mrs. Jobson went upstairs and put  on her things in a trance. She was almost in tears.  " I don't know what in the world  Vi do if anything was the matter with  the dear, lovely old���������"  , Here her mind wandered into speculation over the strange happinesss of  the afternoon -mil evening. Site got  herself up in her best, and when ?he  descended the stairs, Mr. Jobson, himself decked out in his evening clothes,  rewarded her with a gaze of admiration. >  " By Jove, you do look nice, iny  dear!" he exclaimed quite enthusiastically. I'll bet there won't.be a woman in the theater looking half so  spick and span," and ho gave her a  regular old-fashioned kiss.  Mrs. Jobson spent the next tew  hours like a woman in a dream. The  play was excellent and Mr. Jobson was.  the soul of good nature. He said clever  things to her and even made surreptitious love to her between the acts. After the play they went to the hotel  cafe and had Newburged lobsters with  sparkling liquid accompaniment. Then  Mr. Jobson put her into a stylish rubber-tired hansom and they bowled  home.  " My dear," said Mrs. Jobson, plead-  inly, won't you tell me now why you've  been so perfectly love "  A foxy expression crept into Mr.  Jobson's face, which she caught as tho  hansom passed under an aro lighl.  "Well, I'll tell you, my dear," said  Mr. Jobson, I was rummaging in tho  truuks in the store room last night,  wasn't I ? 'Member that navy blue  serge suit that I wore when two went  to Muskoka last summer'' Well, in  digging through the pockets of that  suit 1' found two twenties and a ten  that you overlooked. The bills were  in an inside pocket of the vest. I  missed that money when wo were  down nt the beach, but I thought I'd  lost it, and so I didn't say anything about'it to you. (Weill, seeing as  how you'd overlooked all that real,  sure-enough money," concluded Mr.  Jobson, with a crafty smile, "I  thought that you weie entitled to a  good timo out of it, anyhow, and���������"  Mrs. Jobson's face during this recital was a study. '  " Well," she said calmly, when Mr.  Jobson hesitated, in his enjoyment of  the situation, "I have had a perfectly  lovely time, and I havo no complaint  lo make. But those two twenties and  the ten wore the bills that you gave  mo to put in thk. b.ink the day before yesterday. T didn't go to J.he  bank because il was raining too hard,  and I put them in that vest for sato  keeping!"  THE   WEDDING   RING.  There are few more universal customs among tho modern nations than  that of the wedding ling. Yet-it has  come down to us from very early times  even from ancient Egypt, whence it  came to be prevalent among the Ho-  biews. tl is supposed that Tubal-  C'aiu, tha worker iu metal, taught the  art of ling-iuaking to hib-fellows and  descendants. 'L'ne ring was fiisl worn  as au ornament aud came to be an  emblem of authority in the case ot  kiugs aud those in high places. Messengers ran led the king's signet to  insuic recognition, Physicians wore  rings to pi event couiagiou and the  common people lo insure themselves  against lhe influence of evil spirits.  In the civih/.alion of the ancient Egyptians thu circle was a symbol of eternity and il w.is so u.sed iu the pioluie-  w tiling. Thi'ie is, perhaps, something  fo this idea in lhe sentiment that has  applied thc fingei nng lo lhe union  of two t>ouls by iiMiri.ige. The posi-  lion of thi' ling on tin- hand has been  often chuiiged. The Kuinans and  (Irce-k-s wore il. ou lhe forefinger, and  this seeins to have been the eiisl otui  even in lhe .time of .Charles 1. of England. Bul previous to. his reign, in  l\\e time of Elizabeth, the custom was  for l lie ladies lo wear their wedding  rings on their thumbs. When Oorge  I. rame to the throne the finger had  been changed to lhe l bird. The left  bund is chosen for (.he ring, perhaps  because il is emblematic- of. submission, whereas the right stands for authority. Thu (Week rhuri.li still authorizes' lhe wearing of. two rings,  both  on  the  right  hand.  It wa.s iu tin' fourteenth- ci-inury  I hat. au Italian ast rologist. invented  a system of wedding rings Lo insure  good furl line.

A correspondent, writing from Szeg-  edin, Hungary, presents a very interesting picture of the life of peasanis  of that country.  To see the Magyar peasants to better  advantage, says the writer, we pushed  far inio the wiilds of Hungary, and arrived in Vasarhely laio one afternoon.  Before dining we despatched letters of  introduction. Although the message  was couched in this most difficult of  European languuge-s, it proved effectual, for while we were drinking our  black coffee the mayor was announced. As he spoke- no language bui  Hungarian, he brought wilh him, as  interpreter, an Advocat, who spoke  German. Plans were discussed and  arrangements made to visit some Magyar farms the next day. At " o'clock  we took our seats in the "city carriages," yellow and 'brown vehicles  drawn by two rough-looking, bul fast  horses, which were urged over the  frozen ruu_- at an uncomu'ortable speed  by the Magyar coachmen, who looked  very important in their ligb'" blue uniforms ornamented wilh silvw brnid.  Cone-shaped, black astrakhan ������va and  high black boots completed  thei.   <;os-  tUOIx/tt.  After driving an hour our coachmen  drdw in their horses 'before a new  frame bouse. Three young peasants  stood in the door to "welcome us���������the  owner and two neighbors. The mayor  had selected this, as a typical Magyar  farm, and notified the own&r of our-in-  tended visit. Like many of tho prosperous farmers, he lived in the village  in the winter,  BUT HAD DRIVEN OUT  that morning  to  receive  us,.  The house, liko all belonging to  Magyar peasants, had no hall ; instead  each room opened on the porch, which  is very roomy, serving in summer as a  place to eat. "Now, that he has buill  his house our host 'will be looking for a  wife to marry next Christmas time,"  lhe Advocat expLained, adding, "among  the peasants no wedding takes place in  summer; every one is too busy." We  weie conducted into a small room,  healed by an enormous earthen oven  shaped like a sugar loaf, and fully  four feet iu diameter at the ba-je. One-  half of this erection extended into the  next room, a.s is the custom of ovens  in the rural parts of Hungary. A bed  occupied a large part of the room, and  a long bofa was placed against the  wall, with a table in front of it. There  tha mayor seated himself, being the  guest ot honor, wkile wooden chairs  were brought in for our use. Our  young boat produced beer and a loaf  of biowu bread, the size of a barrel  top, from a cupboard. 'Huge chunks  of the bieaid were hacked o.f, with a  jaokknife. and offered us I Thero was  not a woman to be seen. This did not  surprise us, for we learned soon a-tier  coming to Hungiaxy that not only  among ihe peasanLs, but among the  middle cl.aiss, the Hungarian woman  figures merely a,s a homemaker, sharing to a. very insignificant extent the  life of her husband, father, or brothers. This farm was noted for its fine  merino .sheep, and the owner was  PROUD TO  EXHIBIT' THEM.  It was early afternoon when we  drew, up. beioiu a, low, white plastered  house, ihatched -with reeds, one of a  group 'of. thirteen ' buildings which-  comprise the home of Macz'elka. Joz-  set.a Magyar peasant of considerable  fatn.e. He has. a typical Magyar farm  of t he ancient sort, where customs and  manners, aie as tliey have been for several hundred years. He came out of  i h������ house to assist us in alighting  from the carriages, and gave us a  hearty welcome in Hungarian... As Mac-  zelka's married daughter and his  granddaughter also welcomed us, we  concluded that here, if nowhere else,  wu'uiian took her place by the sido of  man. We soon discovered, our mistake, however.  A covered porch, with thatched roof,  <iOi.ten.ded across a part of the building,  and by way of this.we reached what  appeared to be the Idving-room, the  i:lc>or of which, as of all the rooms,  was .of clay. In one corner rose a  huge oven, so shaped that the lower  pan. served as a bench upon which  ihe family .might.-'si I; and warm their  backs. -A long dining table stood at  one end ot i he' rod in, under - lhe win-  douv-i, with u green bench, behind il.

Having been informed  that we. were interested iu everything  connectetL with their mode <��������� living,  they luok us from room to room in the  main bo-use. In an open kitchen, Mac.  .Kelka's sou-in-lalw  was busy    cooking  the faaniuus paprica dish with which we  were to be honored. No wonian Ls  considered equal to this work of art I  Paprica fish is one of ihe national dishes of Hungary, lfis very much  like our fish-chowder. A large iron  pot held the coru cob (ire; over it wias  suspended a ke.tle, into which had  oeeu put fi^sh caught in Mnczelka's own  section ot the It.iver Thelss ; onions, po-  latofts, and a plentiful supply '��������� of  ground paprica, which dyed the whole  a bright brick-red. In one room a  sweet laced old woman, in Hungarian  costume, was busy making whal looked like pie ciusi. We afterward  learned that she was Maczelka's wife.  As we were passing two beds which  slood along the wall, one ol the younger women .signed to us to wail, land,  stooping, drew from under (hem several biK-kets, in each of which a goose  was silting. The woman's (ace beamed as she slipped an egg from under  one. cross old goose to prove to usi thlat  ih.'.'se feathered membors of the family  Wt're no mere idler.-.. ln the large  Ikitchiu several mauls were busy preparing dinner. Immense ovens occupied ono side of the room. These were  buih with tine chimney outside, and  were for summer use,' In winter the  cooking is done in the grea I. round oven which heats the living-room. The  oven door is in ihe kitchen, and as wo  entered, a maiid was raking out the hot  omU, thai there might be a clear place  for baking.

There is a serious drawback about  a chum, and il lies right here. She,  lacking experience like ourselves, ia  not filted to. help us decide onl light  and wrong.

In sneaking of buttons three distinct kinds are to bo noted: 1, with  shanks, as, shoo buttons;, 2, without  shanks but with (pierced holes, such  as shirt buttons; 3, without either  Bhanks or .piercings, as ordinary linen  buttons. Tailors' buttons are sometimes reckonedas another class; they  have a small rounded pad of material  at the back of the button tor the sewing, but these in reality aro only substitutes for metal shanks, so they  may easily be included in the first  class.  Buttons are sewn on the right side  of a double fold of material to prevent them tearing or pulling away  from the fabric; if this does riot naturally occur where buttons aro needed, tape or some substitute is generally placed underneath as a, support.  Buttons with shanks are very easily  sewn on by simply drawing the thread  alternately through the shank and  material. Buttons without shanks  require to bo what is called "stemmed." This is done by leaving the  thread a little loose while sewing on  the button and thon twisting it  round the sewing several times between the button and the material before fastening off the cotton. Tho  object of this, is to make an artificial  Btcm which, will raise the button  Blight ly above the material so as to  allow sufficient space for the buttonhole to lie under without straining  the sewing. Buttons pierced with  two, three or four holes are sewn by  carrying the thread from one hole to  the other in lines, triangles, squares  or crosses respectively. Linen buttons are sewn on with various devices;  the three most -usual ways are a ring  of slilching, a star of stitches or  one or two loops of buttonholing.  The sewing is placed in the centre ot  the button,' and should uot cover  more than one-third of its diameter;  the  cotton  is  fastened  at  the   begin-  ' ning of the right sido o������ the material,  jusi under the button, by a few back  stitches, and these buttons especially  require    good    stealing  or   they  will  "quickly pull off. To fasten off the  threads pass the needle through to  the wrong side, take one or two back  stholies, slip it between the fold'and  cut   off   the. cotton  closely.  THINGS TO DO IN MAY.  First Week.���������Put in cuttings of  Chrysanthemums to grow to a single  stem. They can either be planted  out on the greenhouse bench or grown  in pots. The lawns should now be in  good shape. They will need mowing  once a week. Plant : out Daisies,  Pansies, Canterbury Bells and everything I hat may be in the cold- framos.  Let the space gained be taken up with  seedling annuals. They do far better in a cold frame now than they do  in hhe greenhouse, or hot bed. Dahlia  roots, if not started, should/be attended to at once. Cuttings of Col-  eus  can  still be  rooted and  attain  a  .good size by the first of June. If  the ground is dry _sow such seeds as  Alyssum, Magrionelte, Nasturtiums,  Porlulaoa, Zinnias, Marigolds, etc. Use  " li������ht; open soil that will not bake. A  little, damp moss spread .oyor the beds  will help to keep the seed moist and  Bave muoh watering. . Put in a lot of  Chrysanthemum cuttiu.gs to be used  for planting on  the  benches.  Second Week.���������Sow more seeds of  annuals to keep up a succession of  flowers. Leave a little air on the  frames and greenhouses at nights, to  better     harden    the  bedding    plants.  ; Give theni plenty of room. Thin out  the annual Poppies that may bo too  thick. Two inches apart' is close  enougb for them. Dahlias that have  not   been  started   cau   now   be planl-  *ed out, but if they have been started  hi u frame better wait till danger of  frost is over. ' Sow seeds of Chinese  Primroses for next Winter's flowering. Plant put Carnations for the  name purpose. Sow more Sweet Peas.  Keep the ground well stirred amongst'  growing plants. Top dress, the  tiardy Hoses with manure. This will  do them much good and keep them  from drying out. Tea Itoses can be  treated the same. Everything should  now be trim and tidy. Keep walks  clean and edged. Lawns should now  be mowed onco > a week.  .���������' Third Week.���������Planting out tinie is  now upon us. Get well prepared for  it. by having all beds, dug and, nicely  rnked. Towards the end of the.week  the hardier of the beddiug plants can  be put. out. In planting, do it firmly,  and if in a ribbon line have it  straight. Do not mix up plants too  much, as nothing looks better than  a mass of one color. Plant, bulbs of  Tuberoses and another .planting of  Gladiolus. All annuals can now be  sown iu the garden. Cover lightly  and with sandy, soil. Put in the last  lot of Chrysanthemum cuttings, and  attend to tho ones that were rooted  last month. Don't allow them to get  pot bound. Earth up Sweet Peas and  put brush to same, if a few inches  tall. Keep the Winter-flowering  etoftk in good shape. Azaleas, Genistas,  etc., should now be plunged out for  the Summer in some sheltered place.  Fourth Week.���������We generally make  this a bedding out week.1 Try to have  everything out. by Decoration Day.  Let the Ooleus and Alternathera be  the last to bo bedded out, as thoy are  the tenderest. Have them well hardened off. We also advise a mulch of  all beds of some well decayed manure-  Plants  d<? much  better  when  treated  PRETORIA AND ITS FORMIDABLE DEFENCES.  The Transvaal capital is well fortified, and both by nature and art is in  a good position to withstand a siege.  ^T-hc question of food supply, however,  is  another  matter.  Ou three "sides of Pretoria the  mountain ranges rise to elevations of  1,000 and 2,000 feet;' above the streets  of the city, which is itself 1,500 feet  above sea level, bul 1,100 feet lower  than the site of, Johannesburg to tho  south. On the fourth side���������the south  and facing the approach from Johannesburg���������the range flattens away to  a vast and level plateau, treeless, desolate,: exposed at .every point to the  sweep of ��������� any guns that .may command  it.  Wherever the eye rests there appears to be the lines of a fort, a redoubt, the front of masked batteries,  or the domes of bomb-proof rifle and  cannon pits. . To;the north, east, west  and south these engirdle the city.  They  command  the   few���������very    few���������  (bus and don't dry put so easily. Of  Cannas this is especially'true. In fact  so welldo we like this plan (hat. every  bed, flower, and shrub is now given  a mulch of mushroom manure, -which  is fine for this purpose. . Look over  the Hoses and see that worms are not  after them. ��������� A dusting of hellebore  early in the morning will help to  keep them away. Any bulbs that  may be taken up should be kept in  the ground until they are well ripened off. Hyacinths are: not much  good the second year, but Tulips are  all right if they:-are well taken care  of.  MINCEMEAT PANCAKES.  Put three ounces of flour into a  basin and add a pinch' of salt, whisk  the yolks of two eggs and mix; them  with half a pint of milk, then stir  gradually into the flour, working it  well with a spoon. When the bat-  tor; is smooth: und thick beat it for  a few minutes, then cover the basin  with a cloth and let it stand at least  half an hour. Before using stir the  whites of the eggs, whisked- to a stiff  froth, into the battel'. Put a small  omelet pan ou the fire with a piece  of lard about the size of a walnut in  it. When it is,hot pour about two  tablespoonfuls of butter into the pan  and cook over a clear fire. When  i one side is brown shake. I he pan and  turn the pancake over and remove  directly it is of even color oni the other side. Have ready a hot dish covered with kitchen paper and turn the  pancakes on it as they' are taken froni  (he pan.

Any good housewife knows that water that's been boiling' for some-time  doesn't unake half such good tea' as  water that's "just on the boil." But  precious few; I fancy, know the reason.

Tho supply of ammunition is calculated to be sufficient for two years.  How many gun's are mounted, or will  bo, it is difficult to estimate. Tho total artillery force of the Boers aJL present is  estimated  at 450 guns.  The centre oft the system of forts  lies about 3,000 feet to the westward  of the northern end of Pretoria, and  has a radius at something more lhan  7,001) yards. The centre of the city is  only about 11,003 feet, nearly duo  south, on. the fort on Signal hill,  which is about 40!) feet above the plain  on the west .side of: the railway to  Johannesburg, and about 13,000 feet  from'the fort on the hill to the east  of tho railway and the Aapies river,  running to the north. Between this  fort and the river1 are the foundation  that furnish the water supply of Pretoria..' The distance between the  forts on either side of the railway is  7,100 feet.  Both river and railway pass under  the  guns  o-f  a la.rge fort, 21,000  feot  Now, follow the coulpi de grace, the  death dealingi blow to bacteria and  spores.   This is Ithe scalding; process.  Where a. good' steam pressure can  be obtained.; superheated steam is tho  best agencyj to employ, whirling the  cans rapidly, while It is applied to  every part of the interior.  On the (ana, however, water if used  while boilingi will be effective enough  to - render  utensils asceptic.  Do not scald milk1 receptacles by  pouring the. hot water from one to  the other. It cools too rapidly to be  effective on-, even the /second can so  treated.  We should always bear in mind that  the fungi, and bacteria inhabiting  milk vessols o re of m.icroscojj.t> clip racier, and. seams which appear clean  to thei naked eye may in reality be  teeming with)millions of these vegetable organisms.  This subject, is ns important in winter as ,������n summer., and the dairyman  who does not consider it so will never  make asuccess at butter, production  in cold weather.  Treat yo-uir. dairy apparatus and  utensils so'well that when they finally become- useless it will not be by  the erosion of rust, but through good  honest, cleanly friction in the path  of trade.  HOW TO SUCCEED IN GROWING  ONIONS.  . At the/ outset, I Would -like to say  i that success, -in growing ibis crop is  nut possible without well-directed'  effort writes. Mr. J. P. Underwood.  Thus means that the soil must be well  supplied with, plant . food, either  naturally or- through years o( manuring and fertilizing. I do' not menu  to say! that there can be> ,no good results where the ground; has not bi:on  especially prepared. I have succeeded fairly well where I have begun to  fit the ground the first season of  planting Crops, but when (his is done  1 would suggesti a liberal application of barnyard manure. Plow this  under deeply, using  tho jointer. ,  This is, a good beginning, and when  the roots- of the crop reach! (foe manure the plants will grow rapidly, if  the    ground;    is  fairly  moist.      This  stable manure,  however,  will  not be  sufficient, and, it will be necessary to  apply some "Trui-ck-acting fertilizer, as  nitrate of soda, to, the surface when  the plants most need( it.   Be stvre to  . get barnyard manure thai is free from  ! straw, as unrotted material interferes  j with   cultivation.    Where,  an   applica-  I (ion ol .fertilizer is' -made- do the surface of the soil, it must be well work-  from the'5 centre of Pretoria. The  western moat fort, is on the range of  hills behind Pretoria,'1 and lies at a  distance oK 3u,0O3 feet from the city's  centre. There is a powerful redoubt to the south-west on the range  of hills through which the transport  road to Johannesburg passes. This  c,o m)j(le<.eb, with various eaa-t*h batteries, the circle af the larger works  defending the Boer capital. Behind  the great redoubt mentioned are the  principal magazines, one excavated  out oif the solid rook, with a bombproof roof, and the other built into  the kloap, also bomb-proof. Communication between the redoubt and the  ���������last-mentioned maigaxlne is by means  of a covered way. Roads connect all  these forts with the capital, and  they have pipes laid for water, as  W'ell as electric lights , for the rearch  lights. An estimate mado 'a short  time ago, bofore all the Boer guns In  use at Kimberley and Ladysmith were  started back to Pretoria, gave tho  number of cannon in the forts and redoubts at. 120, large calibre and quick-  firing. Some are said to be of 23-  centimetre calibre. 'A. groat many.  Krupp, Maxims, and other machine  guns are ready'for service.  ed ua to give the plants a rapid growth.  Aftor the, ground is plowed, grea.i  ca-re "must! be taken/ to pulverize the  surface thoroughly," for several reasons. During the-(dry season',' unless  the soil, is well, compactedi and finely  divided, the yir will, get into the upper layers and rem'ovis all the moisture, so that there will not bo any  left to gerxnajiate the seed. Thon  clods choke the tender.' sprouts untL'  they are smothered nnd never get to  lho surface. The ground must-also be  well drained, for' if water accu'mul-  alea during a wet time the seed will  rot.  Next  securer good  seed,  for  failure  will surely result if- this is not looked  after.   I would'.' suggest obtaining  seed of .the latest improved varieties.  Drill   in   the seed,   aa  early    as   the  ground can be safely worked, as I find  that early sown onions are the best,  especially wherei blights, mildews and  rusts  are- abundant.   My  onion  field  ' ha-s been wholly fiee from these x'ests,  but  any  field  is  apt .to be attacked.,  An extra, effort musti be. made after  | the seed is in the ground to keep down  i the; weeds,! for if, they once get sta-rt-  j ed  Ii'. is   almost  iniipOsslible  to  eradicate them, because ot the smallness of '  ' the young onion plants.   Go over tho  ground  ' of ten po    as- to form'   a soil  mutch and thus conserve the moisture  and keepf the hard crust broken up.  HARROWING WINTER GRAINS IN  .SPRING  Going over the wheat or rye fiela  as soon as it becomes dry in the spring  with a slanting tooth harrow will  greatly benefit, the growing plants.  It breaks the hard crust of earth, letting in air and -sunlight. The rain  from -jspTing showers-is' more readily  absorbed by the earth. All of this  is decidely. advantageous, and when  clover oi'. other grass seed -is to he  sown it should bo done immediately,  previous or soon after tho use of harrow. If no harrow is at hand the usu  of a one-horsei weeder will prove of  value. And by ,the way, what manufacture.- will give us, a practical tool  for cultivating, the open! spaces between the- drill rows of growing  grain? A one-horse tool) cultivating  the width, of the drill would meet  with a ready sale.  COMPASSES)7}I?  NO  USE.  In   military   sketching    a prismatic  compass  is   generally  used,  but  it is  hardly likely  to  be. other  than practically useless  in    '.Natal and  ceyend  ' the Draken^berg, for in  Rului-u'i tha  'presence or iron in the- earth  i ������'���������.*! ars'1,  I the compass  actually    valueless    isr  \ observations.

Sloccan City's patriotic citizens will  give a grand concert on the evening of  the 27th inst., to help "the absent  minded beggar."  There is no war news this week of  any particular importance, except the  scathing criticisms of "Bobs" on the  Spion Kop ad'air.  Easter Sunday brought out good congregations to thc churches. It it were  not for the new bonnet phase of it our  preachers would like to see Easter  come often.  Don't forget the queen of dramatic  productions and most popular play of  to-day, an adoption of Bertha M. Clay's  (Charlotte M.Breame) great life work,  "A Bitter Atonement."  Our firemen had a run to C. Mc-  Laughlan's residence, Wednesday, the  rool of which was ablaze. Be'bre they  got there, however, neighbors had the  flames out by a bucket brigade.  Mrs. Thos.
