It is expected that,  the Queen will arrive at Windsor on  Friday morning.  Here and There.  It is reported that big capitalists are  figuring on buying a controlling interest in the Rambler-Cariboo. Within  the past few days several mining experts have examined the property. At  . the mi no itself they have stopped sorting ore until Ihe'deai goes through.  The principal owners of the:mine are  Cooley-i of Colfax, Washington, an*d  banking - interests, there; J. B.

F. C. Holden has sold out his business in Greenwood and, is going to  Cape Nome.  It is reported that Ira Black, an old-  time Sandonite, has come to grief financially in Phoenix.   -  The city of Hull, Que., opposite Ottawa, was wiped out by fire.

The marriage-, of the Dowager Empress Victoria of Germany, Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, to a German  'count, gives rise to a great deal of unfavorable newspaper comment, and  eyen the revival of an old Berlin court  scandal, which probably had its origin  in court intrigues and jealousies. Even  the crowned heads do not escape the  scandal-monger.  Si  U  Niagara Falls, April 23.-Chief Young  , and Detective Main, assisted by Buffalo detectives, have probably unearthed  a gang of dynamiters operating from  the Dolphin House, Suspension Bridge,  New York, the Rosalie hotel here aud  Buffalo, N. Y., by rounding un John  Walsh, aged 27 years'; John .Nolan, 35  years of age, and Ka:l Dullman, all of  whom nre charged with having attempted to blow up Lock 24 of the  Welland Canal ou Saturday night. The  general impression is that this gang  has been operating as hirelings of  United States capitalists to cripple the  Welland Canal aud divert the traffic of  the upper lakes from Montreal to Buffalo. The accused will appear before  Police Magistrate Logan today. A detachment of Forty-fourth Battalion is  guarding the court house to prevent  any attempt of the mob, from Buffalo,  which it is reported is preparing to  liberate the prisoners.

Mr.fHickey ��������� lifts finally straightened  out all .differences-.between, the, Alex-  ahders:anr.l:,the K.'& S. on the. one side  and.the Minnesota Silver Company on  the other, and secured for;the company  that ..eligible-'mill site opposite the  C.

It is  said to .be pne of the .most suitablo.sitcs  for a concentrator in lbe comntr j\' The  Alexanders have been.'.'paid $3,500. and  a consideration has becii.given to the  K. & S.'R'y Co.. It was, at one time  feared that- the company .would be  forced to build near Three Forks, but  luckily ' different advice prevailed.  This will give Sandon ' four-large, mills  now tributary (and one, the. Alamo, adjacent) with more to follow, shortly. , If  we cannot have lake fronts, and beautiful scenery arising therefrom, let ns  have industries of the . concentrator  land, each-employing a number, of  men, and thus build up a town of industries. '       ./.;'. .. d'.  The ground is now being cleared and  work Will be commenced mext'-'week on  a plan . prepared by Mr'.Bartlett, of  Montana,; one of most callable and  widely experienced men .of the west.  The work will all be done by day labor  under a competent foreman, Mr.  Hickey retaining general:-��������� oversight  himself. ���������     ���������':       '���������'���������.'.  o.  ; The. building will he .of the -usual  .'apartmeats,;, built, on t':.i L.;,l!side and,  will be three stories and; basement* in  front, nnd 52x98 in side (liihensions.  By "story" we do not mean the usual  residence story, but the, spacious ones,  peculiar to industries of .this class on'a  large scale und. under the inost approved plan3. : Approximately the cost  of the structure and machinery fitted  in will bb about ������40.000, and will have  a'capacity of 150 tons a day. The ore,  will be delivered from the'- Minnesota  Silver Co's tram (Ivanhoe mine) and  later from the .Sunshine tram into a  bin in top story of the south end of the  building whichwill hold about 220 tons.  From that it will p-iss into a Blake  crusher, 14x20, through an automatic  feeder, where it will be subjected to the  firs'- operation in pulverization and  separation. The work of pulverizing  is done for the most part by eccentric  wheels. . From this crusher-'the--ore  passes along on a Robins conveyor, a  belt of great width and durability,  where the separated ore is taken off for  shipment. The remainder p.-.sses into  a second ore bin and thence to 8 Hartz  jigs and 8 Wiifley concentrators, whose  operations we will fully describe after  the structure is completed and iii operation, with the shipping facilities.  x'Vt pn-sent it is estimated that there,  is ore'sufficient:in sight at the Ivaiihoe  oil-dumps ...nd in, the stopes to keep the  concentrator running three.years. The  train to the concentrator will be.ou the  aerial principle and some 8,000 feet  long, but easy of construction as there  are no slides to cross. It is supposed  the concentrator will be running-by  tho 15th of August. An electric plant  will furnish some small power.- and  light the entire structure. Water for  the. mill operations will be got from  -Miller creek and power from Carpenter  creek probably. .   ���������'  Company, Limited;: with a memorandum anil articles of association which  have already been prepared with the  privity iind approval of the directors of  this.Company, : .:,        .   ,    '  3.

He says it saved his life."  The following resolutions are those  which were considered at an extraordinary general meeting of the Hall  Mines Limited, held in London, ou  Wednesday, April 12:  1. That it is desirable to reconstruct  the Company, and accordingl}- that the  Company be wound up voluntarily,and  that Atherton Edward Ashley, of 1  Leadenhall Street, E.G., be, and is hereby, appointed liquidator for the purpose of such winding up, at a fee of  fifty guineas.  2.

It is announced that John Keen is  the Conservative candidate for the Slocan. We have heard of no convention  yet, and the constituency has so far  had too much of the self-constituted  candidate.

Doctors being sure of ample reward, succeed mar-  vel&usly well in; prolonging their life  by keeping, diseases at a distance and  by retrenc-luing tl>air'vilaiily,by means  that o.nly tbo mighty can afford. If  it hadn't been for ber sister Stephany,  tbe Austrian Crown Princess's deter-  rnination to marry ber Hungarian  Count, Emperor irra.nc.is.Joseph might  havo interceded, but to-day it's an open .secret in court cirlces that b;( has  washed his hands of the whole business, ' ;'.'���������':':��������������������������� -  He is reported to have said that he  bm? had enough of his Belgian Coburg  i-elalives, and so angry is His Majesty  with them that he snubbed the Princess Elb.albeth, Stephany's only daughter, unmercifully when she made her  debut at a reoont court ball at the  H-o'fbur'g.'

',".-:  Louise's friends were likewise disappointed wben they appealed to the  King of Saxony, who, as Philip's liege  lord, could, if he. chose, comui'and him  to r-elea.se bi.a wife and seek rodress in  divorce. No one min.y gainsay that  King Albert isn't just, even huniiano,  but   this fact  remains���������in matters    of  whipped his wife until the blood' ran  from her face and shoulders.  ."Subsequently I showed my scarred  and bruised face to the King," the let-  tor continued, "and mother and T,implored/His Majesty on bended knees  to permit to sue for a'divorce, but  reasons of state .again put in their.  hon possumus '������������������ and I was dismissed  with much good advice.!' .    '   -  .. So it went on, kicks njid cuffs from  the Prince, cold refusals to protect his  daughter from Leopold, until finally  Louise threatened to go before, the  Belgian Chambers unless a family  council was called to ait ou her case.  The family council assembled at Laek-  en under the Presidency'of tho King,  all Coburg Prince.. and Princesses  attending; But they were evidently  dominated, by Leopold, and after long  deliberations decided against a divorce.  Louise was told to return to her wife-  beater husband without  delay.   ���������  From thut fatal day the life of  Princess Philip of Coburg changed.  Tbe sad and pious woman fof yore became the ga.yest of the igay, appearing on till publio occasions in the  most risque toilets and seeking the  company of her husband's, roue friends,  whom she had once abhorred. All VL-.  enna noticed the change and commented on it. Only - the husband seemed  not to see it. He wanted no grounds  for divorce, for in that case he would  have to give up the Princess's dowry,  besides a considerable annuity, and,  though Philip is' immensely wealthy,  he takes good care that no one but  himself enjoys his money.  Here is Louise's own version of . the  scandal that led to her disgrace. " Determined to force my husband to dissolve our union," . she writes to .her  royal friend, " I encouraged Count  Keglevich in his attention tome, and  one fine day went: to bis apartments  in l!he. palace, at. the name time sending for the Prince. Hevmaltreated  me  ordor...that King Leopold, her.brother  and administrator may continue in  the enjoyment of her fortune.  "Yet even in these matters there ;iB  a certain progress .noticeable," continued thei courtierj with fine sarcasm.  "I need only, remind you, of the, P/uch-  esse of Ahlden, who wits Sophie Charlotte of Hanover, wife of George I.,  of England, mother of Georgo II.,  and grandmother of Frederick the  Sreat.:-.',',  . (1   .-' '.-! ���������        ; ,-: ,, ."'.'���������  "To revenge herself upon a profligate .;.- husband,'-. she took a lover,  as Louise did afterward. That lover.  Count, Konigsmarok, they murdered  in cold blood, and then 'abolished her  alive' by 30 years' incarceration in the  moory solitude of , Luneburg Heath,  where she .was made to, suffer alll the  tortures of hell.  ' :��������� ,-;���������  "Again, there was Caroline of Brunswick, wife of George IV. If it/ hadn't  been for Parliament and the great  Brougham, who defended her., she  would have undoubtedly shared the  Duchesse of Ahlden's fate. As it;'.was,,  she lived and/ died, an outcast; though  nominally Queen of. England.1 Her  daughter, by tho way, became the wife  of Leopold I., , of Belgium and the  grandmother of the present'Louise.

Tbo prize  money is held in trust. Hut the quaint  bo-quest is a leminder, most substantial, of tho interest that women of  tho present day tako in scientific advancement. The number of women  who contribute out of their private  means to the maintenance of observatories and who equip poor but /.palpus astronomers for individual inves-  ligytion   increases   every   year,   and at  matter what thrilling revelations the  astronomer may discover with hia  glass, his work is almost valueless to  science unless subjected to mathematical proof. Now he photographs thoso  views verbatim ��������� and preserves tho  plates, to be examined at leisure. The  authorities at several observatories  habitually exchange the photographs  taken of the same stars and planets  in order that comparisons may bo  madi, regarding their aspect from different  latitudes.

This triumphant victory over the deadly bacilli is far reaching in its  effects, for their is no longer room for doubt that tile gifted specialist has  given to the world a boon that will save millions of precious lives.  Dr. Slocum's System of Treatment is both scientific mid progressive  going as it does to the very source of the disease and peiformihgthe cure  step by step.

There is no intention of withdrawing   the   appeal against Tachan,  .but if the collector has himself made a-  mistake, it is his duty to rectify it.   It  does not, however, furnish a 'reason for  leaving; anamolies on the list.  .Next, the accusation is made that  ' the appeals are nearly all.against miners. In this'the accuser is as truthful  as usual, but no more so.. A glance  over the old list appealed against will  ���������'showT'. about 2G0 miners and some 330 of  'other callings, so that if the appeals  were allowed as made,the miners would  gain Borne 70 votes by the transaction.  ... Next, an efl'ort .is made to show that   Mr. Cliffe used some legerdemain with  Mr.  W. B. Cayzer   to induce him  to  sign appeals in the wrong, tilled out by  Mr. Cliffe.   The -fact of the matter is,  and it can be proven even to the satisfaction of prigs like Mr. McAdam, that  Mr. Cliffe had no knowledge that there  , was such a man in existence   as Mr.  Cayzer until'the latter had completed  most of his objections.   In every case  ���������   Mr. Cliffe conferred with some of the  oldest and best posted men in the var-  ioustowns'for his information as to the  lists.   In Kaslo he met half a dozen of  the best   posted and - most reputable  business men of the city,.and the list  o.f. objections,   for   that  district,   w'iib  made up from their recommendations.  Mr. Cliffe filled a few of them on their  recommendations and left completions  and other appeals  to be dealt with at  their discretion.   If they got Mr. Cayzer or Mr. Any-other-man to complete  the work,it is their business only.   We  may   say -here that mine owners and  mine managers, as is imputed, had no  more to do with it than the man in the  iiiooii. - It is the duty of   every good  citiztn, no matter what his calling, to  desire" a proper voters' list.   Of course  ���������in a country like this,where men travel  around a great deal, it is au  absolute  impossibility for any one man  or any  set, of men to know exactly where* all  -   the voters are, who cannot be located,  and the desire in the present appeals  is only to make the list as pure as possible, limiting it to thoso who are at nil  likely to be present to vote. . In so far  as  the old list is  concerned, the only  ���������  one Mr. Cliffe has bail anything  to do  ���������with, it is not necessary for any man,  . whose nan.ehiis been wrongly objected  , to.to attend CourF'oi' Jlevision at Kaslo,  or even to send in an affidavit, as Mr.  ICurtz,  the clerk, has written  instructions from Mr. Cliffe to accept a  letter  from any voter objected to setting forth  his right to be on the list, or a bitter or  , statement from any reputable man to  the same effect,   as sufficient   to   set  aside thc appeal.   It is known to scores  of   the most   prominent men   in the  country there are hundreds of r. peats,  names of dead men, aliens  and people  left the country, and tbe idea is simply  to lind out- who are und who are not, of  thc whole Hst.eligiblo voters.   In every  other   province   of  Confederation,   it  is considered the duty us'well   us  the  privilege   of every, public man to do  what he can to perfect the voters' lists  before elections.   In this   country  it  appears to   be the   duty   of political  wise-acres and   basswood   politicians  to do   what   they can .to keep them  in   the   greatest   confusion    and    to  brand   those who  do what   they can  to secure   perfection   as  rascals   and  enemies of the country's welfare.   We  venture the statement now, and we are j  confident   it   is   capable   of   absolute'  proof, that scores of men who have removed   fiom   the. Slocan,  and   whose  names are now on the Slocan list, and  will remain there if the prigs and guttersnipe scribblers have their way of  it, have applied and gone on the lists  of other Ridings, thus committing offences against the law of the land.

Our neighbor appears to be much excited   because : the   Conservatives  are,  not taking; up Mr. Green as.a candidate,  while he is a Conservative.  'We may  answer that the main reason is because  Mr. Green is not  taking up  the Conservatives.     Mr. Green   has been two  years a member, and we fail to remember   a single occasion   on which   he  called the Conservatives together and  gave them an   account of his doings  in the House,   although  wc do know  that on every occasion possible he has  called the miners' union men  together  and confabbed   with them.     In other  words  by neglect, oversight  or dtlier-  wise he has always ignored  the Conservative  party   and its   platform,   a  platform that, by   the way,  he was a  party iu building, and,  from   appearances, has taken up the miners' union  platform, which  never elected him in  the   first place.   He' no doubt got in  his former election a fair sprinkling of  the mining vote;  but it was, generally  speaking, the business vote of the constituency that elected him, and.we fail  to sec that he has even once since considered  it in the House or out of it.  He certainly cannot say that his votes  in the House have been of service to  the business community���������the element  to which  he owes his former election.  These are among the reasons why he is  not now taken up by thc Conservatives.  'Apart from this.wc understand that he  is not going to wait  for the Conservative  convention   but   has   announced  himself a candidate  iu advance of all  conventions, and is now about to.issue  an   address- independent of   all   other  party platforms.    We think   these are  good reasons why he cannot be taken  up by thc Conservatives.   We venture  the opinion too that the gulchite, lhat  professes  to  be a Conservative paper,  and that  lias been'lecturing   Thc Review for alleged misrepresentations of  the utterances of Charles Wilson, the  leader of the Conservative party, will  throw itself outside   the pale of that  party by svipporting Mr. Green.    Wait  I and see if it does n������t do sO.

Such an act  would serve a  double useful purpose���������-it would  serve  all alike and  open the eyes of the on-'  tire public besides.   We venture the  opinion that-if consent'to repeal the'  penal clauses of the present act  is not  obtained thc other will be passed,which  will give the general public a share of  nresent    special   blessings.

No attempt has been made by  the mine owners,   or any one else, so  far as we know, to disfranchise even a.  single voter "by wholesale."    The idea  is to get off the lists all names of per-1  sons who   cannot be expected   to be  present to vote in the coming elections  and reduce the chances of personations  and such frauds to a minimum.

Blr   Arthur  understood  her, und he knew  that  her  desire to inherit Lancewood was not so  much   for  the  wealth-or  the  importance   lhat   would, accrue   Lo  her,   but  because     she     had    ; lofty     ideas      of  adding  to the luster  of her  name,  of  doing   good   lo  all   in   Lhe   estate���������bo- |  cause   she     would  carry   but   needful ;  improvements   for     which   lie  had   no;  Inclination.

He could remember  her enthusiasm over the grand old  trees.

Now sho  would never plan again. Tears dimmed his eyes, partly in gratitude for  the son born to him, and partly in sorrow for .'the daughter who had lost all  through his birth.  Then he reproached , himself. It  was too late, he said, for, thoughts of  that kind ��������� too la.te for regret; ho  was married, and a son was born;  there was nothing to bo done but  make the  best of it.

"Indeed! What., name huvo you  chosen ?"   he asked.  "Oswald.    It   seems   to  have  been a  favorite name in th,.- family.

He spoke regretfully, like one who  felt that he had missed some.road in  life; then, suddenly looking at his  wife,, he said���������  ,"Valerie, you - mako very .sure, of  this son of yours.

The ending of a human life is but as  the. falling of a leaf from a tree.  Sir Arthur Nesiie was dead; and when  those who had cared most for him  summed up his life, thero was but little to record about it.

Now, ho too was placed in the  family vault ' whsre the ' Neslies of ���������  La ncewood slept. The day of hi.s.  funeral was one not soon forgotten  at the Abbey.- There was no sunshine, but a cold, drizzling rain. The  world looked gray and disconsolate,  there was' not even a gleam of blue, in  the sky. ��������� ���������    '"   '.:���������  "Such a day to be buried on!" tho  servants said, as though tho dead man  could note the darkness of tho sky  and, the absence of the sun.',.  The Abbey was cheerless'within and  without.' . There was no sound outside  .avc that ,of the steady downfalling  rain beating on the ground. '���������', Inside  all was gloom. The blinds wero  drawn; the servants, dressed in,deepest mourning, moved about noiselessly; there was tho muffled step of the  mourners; there wore the depressing  ���������almost terrible ��������� paraphernalia that  serve merely to tidd to the 'bitterness,  of death.   - ���������:. ���������;���������," -  There were; two who mourned the  dead man; one was Vivien, the other.  Lady Nesiie did all  that decorum could expect; she shujt  herself into her own room, where she-  was supposed to be undergoing par-  oxyms of grief,'but where, in, reality,  sho amused herself by reading a  French novel. She professed herself  too much overcome eveh ,to see any  one. But she was able to study the  effect of her mourning. "It became  her"���������and she clasped her hands in  devout thankfulness.  ' "I was so afraid, Marie," sho said  to her maid, "that I should'look; horrible in  black."  Master Oswald, in his nursery,  passed tho morning in a violent- struggle with his two nurses, stoutly refusing to put on the black dress provided  for him���������"it was ugly, and he hated  it"���������which mutiny, on being reported  to "miladi," caused her to smile nnd  say���������     ''���������..'-.��������� '    '   '  "The dear child has so much sense;  black is very unpleasant. But remember he is Sir Oswald now, arid he.  must do as he likes." ,.������ -  The    long    black  procession  moved  silently through    the    park,  the rain  falling on the waving piumos.     So the  late master of Lancewood passed from  the home where his feet should never  tread more    while   the  daughter  who  had loved him as sho had loved nd one  else    lay    weeping in    hor    darkened  chamber���������weeping      as      though    her  grief    could    never    grow  less.      Sho  thought   of    what Lord   Sit. Just had  said   about time,     Would    time   ever  bring healing to her?     Would her terrible heartache ever cease? Would her  awful sense of desolation ever depart?  Lady  Nesiie   longed    for    the  nour  when the blinds should be drawn up.  She had never left her' room���������no croa-  ture living  had a    greater dread    of  death  and     everything    belonging  to  it  than    his    gay-hearted  lady.      Sho  paid  no   visits  to   tho  darkened  room  where lay the man who had loved hor;  she never saw him after he was dead;  and the time seemed long to her while  the house was all in gloom.     She sat  iu her own room with her maid while  Sir  Arthur   was  buried  and   she  was  restless with excitement.      A widow's  cap  lay'on-the. toilet  table���������not    the  somber      head-dress    that    sorrowing  wives    usually    wear,    but    a    pretty  coquettish cap. "Miladi" took it iu her  bands.  ���������   "1 shall not mind this so much," she  said.   "You have  really  made it very  I cleverly, Marie; it    will  not    hide my  I hair."  She laid it on thu glossy brown coils j  of hair, and viewed herself with great  satisfaction. " -  -  It is positively becoming," sho said  "Marie, you aro a perfect treasure.

She had not much :  heart     herself,     but  "milndi'.s" ' total j  want of  it  disgusted  her. '<  :;.- Lady Nesiie walked  restlessly to tho i  ' window.      She drew up  I he blind and  looked    out   on    the    cold,    cheerless  ', scene.  j "What a dayl" she said- "The very  ; earth and sky are full of funeral  | gloom. Ah, this foggy, miserable  i England, it has nothing to recommend  jit   but   its motieyl"  "Liigiiuid   has   been  a     good   fosier-  I mother    to you, 'miladi,'"    remarked  Marie.

"If ever!" re.poatod the maid. "You  will have to die,' 'miladi,' just as well  as   the   rest  of   the  world."  "That will not be for many .years  yet," she said, laughingly. "Now,  Marie, I am going to enjoy my life.

Sometimes thore are sev-  ero pains in the back and limbs; weakness and pain in. the eyes, and general  listlessness and debility, all arising  from,this fruitfuf source of trouble. :  In such cusea, whetlier of occasional  local distress, or of more chronic and  sorious .disorder, a ' strict diet will  work-greater wonders than medicine.

AND HOW THEY WERE WELL SETTLED  BY A TENDERFOOT.  the stomach when out'of order needs  rest, just as wo when sick or overworked,  need rest.  A child of our acquaintance, who  had occasional and slight-disorders of  the stomach, became, one winter,  (utterly.listless and lifeless. ... She complained' of painin the back and limbs,  her eyes were not as strong as they  had been, then, the began having intense pains in her head. ..The family  physioian. was commlted again and  different medicines- were given, all  without effect. The parents became  worried and then alarmed.  At last a friend said to the mother  that sho believed tho.trouble all arose  from tho child's stomach, and advised  tt strict  diet:  It, was tried as a last resort, aiid  tho child soon began to improve. She  kept on improving, and at the end of  six weeks was well. She has had less  trouble with hor stomach since that  timo than ever before, and has been  strong  and hearty.  Her diet for the first two on three,  weeks was nothing but broths and  fresh milk. There are some stomachs  that milk does not agree with, but not  many. During that time she.took no  solid food of'any kind.  After the third week crackers and  bread, not fresh bread, were cru'nibed  into' the broth,''and-milk, and from  that time on a greater variety of  foods was gradually, very gradually,  pk-i-initted. These were all of a nature to be easily digested, and not until the end of the: six weeks was the  ordinary  diet 'fully'"'returned  to.^  Of course it was hard for the..child,  for she did hot like brolhs.'and for tho  mother too. It takes time to. make  broths, and when they are. tho solo  diet,  there- must be variety.     So sho  .Jacket of biscuit cloth, double-  breasted, trimmed with bios folds.

Ho hadn't  made tho 'mining engineer' proposition  stick, and within a month after he landod  in  Arizona he  found  him sol f   broko ln  Phonlx.    So ho got u $5 a day job pounding the piano in  the  back  room  of Joo  Hardesty's Palais saloon.    He was a pretty  fair piano sharp and earned his wages.  His  name  was Algernon .Montclair, and  ho looked the namo, with his glrly skin,  big bluo eyes and mild, inquiring expression.    Tho boys got to guying hfm a good  doal, calling him 'mamma's  nngol  child'  and that sort of thing, and they tried pretty  hard to get a rise out of tho koy punoher,  but ho stood forthowholo thing and never  stopped  playing when  thoy were guying  him tho hardest.    Joe Hurdosty called the  gang down once  in awhile for ridiculing  tho piano  player, but when  Joe wasn't  around thoy poured it into tho tenderfoot  pretty  hard.

As ho did  so ho saw tho tenderfoot standing with hia  back to tho piano and a gun in each hand.  There wero two almost, simultaneous reports, and both of Buck Freeman'sunits  were broken close to the ..shoulders. Chop  Suey was quick on the trigger, and ho  liad his two guns otit before tho tender-  foot's pair belched forth a couple more  fluHhoa, then Pollock's twin gnus fell to  thu Hour like so much junk. Both of his  arms wore broken too.  " "Xou dirty dogtlt,' said tho tondorfoot  to tho two helpless bullies  us  thoy  stood  and   looked  at  him   savagely with   their,  shattorod urius ut thoir sides, and then ho  walked over.to  thom  nnd  spat  in   their  faces ono after tho ol-hbr.     freeman  gave  a suddou reach out with his right, boot its  lf to trip tho tondorfoot, his idea probably  hoi ng to get  the piano  player  down  and  stamp tho life out of him, but, tho tenderfoot, whosu mild blue eyes wero. now blazing, was too .quick,     lie hopped   back out  of reach liko a boxer, aiid with   his  right  hand gun ho bored a hole fair and plump  through Buck  Ifroemaii's forehead.

A very wealthy, sedate and enterprising 'manufacturer in Pennsylvania  has a brother who is trilling, dissipated and of courso a spendthrift. But  the fellow now and then displays re-  markttblo Ingenuity iu "making a  raise." All his lifo he has Indulged,  among other bud habits, that of writing execrable verse, much of which,  however, he has managed to get  printed.  Lately he conceived, the monstrous  Idea of having nil his stuff printed iu  a book and with the aid of an unscrupulous printer succeeded in bringing  out tho "work" lu quite haudsomo  shape. But ln the most affectionate  terms he "dedicated" the book to his  wealthy brother, who regards his near  and. dissolute kinsman's "poetry" aa  really the most reprehensible thing  that the Incorrigible fellow does.  But the rhymester and his "black art"  accomplice knew their business. They  printed a large edition of the book and  sent a copy to the wealthy man, who  Immediately purchased the entire edition and the platc3 nnd made "words  that burn" of the "poems" by means of  a bonfire.

The Countess    de   Bremont   contributes an article    on phyaicul    culture  among the Boers.     The Boer, she says,  is a sturdy    son of    the   boil.      Ho is  brave and he is athletic, but he cures  not a jot for physical culturo in,    tha  accepted sense; still, he is an interesting study of x.hysical culture "au nu-  turel."     Of the scientific sido of it he  is supremely  ignorant.      The Boer ia  un udept at climbing.     lie is a skilled  rough  rider,     a luiin'oiou.,    shot, and  capable    of    astonishing  feats  tn   the  way of  lifting    heavy    weights.      tie  can ford   u heavy    stream of rushing  water wilh  un  euso burn  of constuul  practice und  endurunco.    in a    word  Lho Boer    is    a formidable    opponent   '  whoro the chances aro in fuvor of pure  grit and  natural  alhletic ability;  but  where tho science of physicul culture  is    demanded  he    would  fail  uttorly.  h'rosh air is an important essential tt������  the perfection  of   physical culture; of  this  the  Boer  has  a, sufficiency.      Aa  a set-off    fo    this,    ho inhabits closo,  stuffy  dwellings,   where windows aro  at  u premium,   and  thc  door  opening  on thc    family   stoop is    the principal  source of  veuciiution.      At night    ho  sleeps    with    every opening    securely  closed.      Then, again, ho is an inveterate smoker,  an  inordinate eater,  and  deeply,    hopelessly    lazy. Ue takes no  exercise but  what is absolutely necessary;  the  consetiuenco follows  that ho  is    rarely      an    example    of    perfect  physical condition,   being  KITH Kit TOO FAT Olt TOO LEAN.

There is a very simple rule for finding the average number of years which  persons of any age may expect to live.  If the-present, age be deducted from  80, two-thirds of the remainder is the  answer required. This result Is not  absolutely accurate, but It Is near  enough. For instance,, a man aged 20  might by this rule,.,expect to live 40  years longer, which Is just what the  latest actuarial tables give. At 40 the  expectation of life works out at nearly  27 years, while the tables give It as  more than 25 years. At GO the abovo  rule allows just over 13 years, and the  table shows a little less.  ally the laziest and most lacking in  muscular energy of all the different  sorts and conditions of me.u it has beta  my lot to meet.
