Canadian Fishing Yessels  Held  American Authorities.  Port Tewnsend, Wash., Aug. 8.���������The  -   recent seizure of several Canadian fishing   vessels   by   the   revenue   launch  guard in the vicinity of Point Roberts  and Blaine   for  fishing in   American  waters, has raised some intricate points  of international law.     It   is  clair..ed  that  there ,is no law which  prohibits  foreign vessels from fishing in American waters and,  under this claim, tho  British-embassy at Washington  made  a demand on the United Stat.s government for tho immediate release of the  vessels.   This was referred here for investigation,   and  the revenue officers  say the vessels were seized for landing  nets in American waters without complying with the customs laws by entering their certificates.   This explanation  t was not satisfactory and advices to-day  *i'rom the treasury department at Washington say that   United States Consul  ,, Smith, ot Victoria, has been ordered to  proceed to Point Eobcrts   and Blaine  immediately for the purpose of making  a -thorough investigation   and report  without delay to the department.  WARNED BY RUSSIA.  the great peak of Assiniboine for some  time. He will be accompanied by  Swiss guides from Interlaken, who  have recently been introduced nt the  Selkirk glacier and other mountain  points for the benefit of Alpine clubs.  A story is now going the reunds  to  the effect, that the Chinese government  will soon make a contract for tearing  down the Great Wall, which  is 1,300  miles long.   It is very unlikely that  any attempt  to do this will bo made,  because the expense of taking   down  such a wall,   even   with  the cheapest  labor, would amount  to an almost impossible figure.   Theresevoir at Forty-  second street and Fi th ayenuo, "New  York city,   may be compared   to  the  tho wall of China in certain ways.   It  is estimated that it will cost over S100,-  000 to remove the resevoir, and when  its small size is considered,  it will be  seen that to pull down  1,300 miles of  wail would cost a billion or more dollars."  It is probable that tho w-ill may,  however,   be utilized  as a quary   by  those in search of building materials.  '���������Scientific American.  Miss Maud Spencer, of Leeds, Eng.,  has broken her engagement with Geo.  A. Ilundel, a young engineer, and  secured $250 damages in a breach Jof  promise suit, because her loycr re  turned her letters with errors, in spelling and grammar corrected iii' ink. If  the same law is in force in Canada  there is a.chanee for fortunes in it.  A WAY OUT OF THE DIFFICULTY  Is for  th^ Owners  and Miners   to Hold  a 'Joint Meeting.  , It is a pity that the owners and men  of the Slocan cannot come together  and make some arrangement to break  up the present monoton}'. Even if the  men should win eventually, in a lay  off of six months they will lose as  much as they would gain in three or  four years' work, and, of course, the  owners are in any event losing the interest on whatever profits their properties may make. .Outside of this the  eountry is receiving a set back from  which it will take years to recover,  and business.-: men, too, everywhere  and in every line in the district are  losing money. It would be a great  thing all around if a conference between the men and the owners was  held to see if some solution or way out  of the difficulty could not be arrived  at. We are confident the business men  in the district would do what they  cou d in any way to assist in an amicable settlement of the differences.  whether from the ore ledges becoming  exhausted or from the market demand  for silver and lead becoming small and  unprofitable. This week there have  boon 5,230 shares sold at prices the  highest of which svus 140 and the lowest 135. Offer was made of 135 and the  demand was for 140.���������Montreal Mining  News.  MINES AND MINIM  PERSONAL   MENTION  A Divine Healer Accused of Murder.  China  Told  to  Beware of  With Japan.  an  Alliance  Pekin.Aug. 8.���������M. JDegiers, the Russian minister, has addressed a note to  the Tsung-li-Yamon, warning that body  that the conclusion of an alliance with  Japan would give great offence to Russia, and that the consequences to China  would be most serious.  Victoria, August 7'.���������Captain McCos-  k'ri, of the Princess Louse, has given  the police information that the so-  called divine healer, of whose mission  here one Eugene Brooks is head, is responsible for the death of his young  son. It seems that Mrs. McCoskri was  prevailed upon by converts to give up  her regular physician and resort to divine healing, under which treatment  the boy died during tho captain's absence from the city.  HOW IT HAPPENED.  Slocan City and District.  Chinese Fooled After Ail.  Victo'ia, August 9.���������Since the Privy  Council has decided that the act prohibiting the employment of Chinese  underground in coal mines is beyond  the authority of the provincial legislature, the government has determined  to accomplish the samo result in a  different way. This decision is announced as the result of an interview  with Ralph Smith, as representative of  the miners' union. The mine inspector  will be ordered to prohibit the employment underground of any person not  able:to read and understand the coal  mines rogulations. This rule not to  effect any persons so employed before  the lst;of August.  Weird Political Forecasts.  The Chapleau closed down Sunday.  It is understood that tho company intends laying out plans for work on an  extensive scale. Mr. Williams, tho  superintendent, leaves at once for London, England; to consult with the  company.  Mr. Jeffries, expert for Dickenson &  Webb,. made an examination of the  Slocan Chief and Kootenay Queen last  week, and as a result a deal is being  made with Pearson brothers, the owners.  J. Christopher, who was injured a  few clays ago in the Arlington mine by  a lull of rock, is improving rapidly at  the hospital.  The Black Prince men are building  boarding and ore houses. Allen & Co.  are hauling ore steadily from the  mine.  Mr. Crowse Gives to ,a Review Reporter  Particulars of the Sovereign  Accident.  Mr. Crowco is now around after his  miraculous escape ot the Sovereign,  and gives tlie cause of the accident, as  nearly as he can get at it, as follows :  The tunnel is iii about 550 feet and at  400 it makes a jog or drift on the vein  about 150 feet. Thoy had just drilled  in eight holes in the face of the drift,  as indicated by these figures  4 5  3 6,  2 7  1    , ���������    .  - 8   ;���������-.'  Tho holes were in about five feet, and  all ready for the match.   He and the  deceased were standing close up to tbe  rock setting off the blasts.   They had  touched 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and G.   They had 7  and S yet to touch  and  it took a little  longer than  usual on account of their  being wot.   They expected after touching 7 and S   to make the corner,   150  feet distant, for safety, when, in a big,  black smudge���������it being   a bad fuse���������  No.6  went off, blowing down   all told ,  five   leet   of rock.     How he   escaped i  with so comparatively slight injury he.|  will never know,  as the   general impression is that any living thing within several feet of the blast should be  blown to atoms.  Jas. Jones, of the C. P. R., was in the  city this week.  Miss Webster, of Spokane, is visiting  with her sister, Mrs. David.  i The Kev. A. M. Sjinford attended district meeting in Trsii.1 this week.  T.

Mining, and Capitalist: Visitors.  Victoria, August 8.���������Advices from  New Westminster are that a combination has been formed against Henderson strong enough to defeat him. In a  preliminary caucus VR. L. Reid and D.  J. Muhn were chosen as likely'candidates and both consent to run if de-  ,, sired. The choice will be made by a  committee of friends at which Reid  .\ and Munn will'be equally represented.  Each pledges himself to work for whoever is chosen.  The latest named aspirant   for the  premiership', in the event of Semlin's  retirement,   is   Peters,   ex-prcmier of  Prince Edward Island,  but now a-resident of Victoria,   and member of the  '   firm of Tupper, Peters & Potts.   He is  how visiting  Vancouver   and   taking  active part in a political conference in  progress theie  and at New Westmin-  "uter. '���������'.-.  '���������  Goat Rirer Mining Division.

That newspaper publishers are riot  always to   blame, and   in'   fact   very  seldom,   when errors, appear in their  papers, is evident from the following :  Some   weeks   ago the   manager   of a  property, well known to most citizens,  brought a large piece   of ore to  this  office broken from a rich lodge!    He  said it came from his tunnel; and lie  gave   a   description   of  his   valuable  propeity,   which was' repsrted   as bo  gave it.   A few days after the secretary  of the company called at the office and  informed the editor, they had hot yet  found a lead, to say nothing of a. pay-  streak, on their property.     He said  they had found consideraole float and  were   driving   a cross-out   to tap the  lead.   Of course tho editor was not to  blame for the falsification somewhere.  However, as the manager with the big  ledge, has since been iircd, we are free  to say he did the fibbing.  Jas. Baird, of London, Eng., is making a tour of the counuy.  Messrs.

Shares in this British Columbian silver and lead property, when for sale, do  not want offers long and as there are  three million shares,   which would at  present prices yield over four million  ars, there  are quite frequently  on  I this stock transactions   which   somc-  ' times involve considerable vaities.   Silver and lead  are  inconstant demand  and are likely always to' be so.   Besides tho company working  this silver  and lead property recommend it as an  investment iu   the  best  way.     They  pay out  large monthly dividends and  doing this, keep  t;;e stock price' above  par  value.     These prices  lluctuating  never come lor   any   length of time,  even at their lowcol, near par and-they  thus add  perceptibly   to much   other  cumulative evidence that this mine is  a very valuably property.

Harrington's property, the Get-  There-EIi group on Twelve Mile creek.  Some railway men while blasting  near Duncan City exposed a rich gold  ledge and located several claims at  once.  All told there are about 125 men  working in mines within four miles of  the city. Tho usual number is 6 or 7  times that.  The general conclusion of mining  men, who have seen the chute of ore  lately exposed in No. 5 tunnel of the  Payne, say it is the best one yet met  on the property.  All the mining operations around  Cody are confined to a few men working at the Noble Five, and perhaps  seven or eight at the Vulture and four  at the Coin. Thero are several, however, working at prospects of their own  in the vicinity!    ,  Mr. B. M. Walton, the conractor at  the Ajax Fraction, says there are several men working underground on that  property at S3.50 for eight hours.  Newspapers get their information from  several sources that they b lieve to be  reliable. Very few publishers give  anything they do not believe at the  time to be true. We gladly give Mr.  Walton's version of it, as we know  nothing of the circumstances ourselves  personally.  Many  have heard of the richness of  the silver ores of the Slccan country,  but few havo an id-ja uf how rich these  ores are.   By a  careiul computation it  was recently shown   that  the average  assay v.iluc of several thousand tons of  ore Irom different mines in'the Slocan,  which ore  was treated   at the several  smelting plants  in and out of Canada,  ran about 125 ounces  of silver and 45  per cent lead to the ton, which would  represent,   taking   the  price   of   the  metals at their present values, some    ���������  $113 to the ton.  Our   reporter saw   A. R. Brown   in  town this week and obtained from him  the following figures as  to men.employed and wages paid at the Lucky  Jim mine during the month of July :  One foreman, ������5;  one blacksmith,, ten  hours, ������4; one carpenter, ten hours, $4;  two engine drivers, $3.50 and $������; eight;  machine   men,   underground,:   eight"  hours, S3 50;   two mining on surface,  ten hours, ������>3.50;' three carmen, underground, eight houw, i3;   two surface 0  men, ten hours, S3; one cook; S3.���������Kot ���������  tenaian. . .     ,>' .'

BARN CONSTRUCTION. ���������  A gentleman whose barn was recently burned asks us for the names of  books devoted to plana of barns and if  thoro are architects who inake a specialty of barn construction.  . To both of his questions we must  'answer that we know of nono. The reason for lack of publications especially  devotsid to barn construction is that  ideas have been changing so rapidly  during the last few years that nothing  thoroughly up to date has boon published in book form. The most progressive idoas on the subject are in tho  files of the best class of agricultural  newspapers. So far as architects are  "concerned .we-know of none who make  any speciality of barn construction,  for the reason that an architect to understand his business thoroughly must  be something of an expert* in some of  the technical details of the uso to  -which the structure is to be put. The  more modern and best arranged barns  that we know anything of have been  constructed by practical dairymen.  The changing ideas relative to barn  construction are due to a growth of  lhe feeling that cattle must have more  light, more air, and better air than  was formerly supposed to bo necessary.  Growing out of, this feeling has come a  condemnation of the former practico of  a.dark, noisome manure.cellar in the  basement, cattle above that, and then  hay and other fodders above the cattle  and manure.  The essential principle of modern  barn construction is that there shall  be a main building for storage only,  with one story ells to be used exclusively for stock.  There are many adaptations of this  prineipLe, according to circumstances,  the lay of the land, the size of the  dairy and the means o������ the owner. In  a 'number' of instances where those  modern barns have been built, the  land is of such a sloptv as to allow of  a light, dry, airy basement under tho  whole, of the main barn which affords  an excellent storage place .toy. wagons  and farm machinery. In' some instances the lay of the land is such that  loads can be driven not only on to the  main floor of. the.barn, but also on to  u n;'upper floor. In tho latter case  much of the grain, etc.; can be unloaded so as to drop by gravity to the bins,  saving a great deal of manual labor.  Many of these new barns aro fitted for  the use of a fork for unloading hay.  In some cases the silo is built in the  barn, the silo being rectangular : and  occupying a . corner of the barn, or  being circular and enclosed in the  barn, according to the tastes of the  owner. The circular silo seems on the  whole,to be  growing in favor.  The ell for the stock will bo of such  length as is necessary to accommodate  all the animals to be kept; there may  .be'more' than one if needed. This ell  is usually of sufficient width to allow  room for the passage of a wagon loaded with green crops" through the centre, ss'ith a row of stalls on each side,  and liberal passage ways in the.rear.  These ells are usually built vvith monitor roofs, well supplied with windows  which can be opened from the . barn  floor by rods and gears. It is usually  customary to open all on .one side or  the other, according to tho direction of  the wind. Each side of this stock ell  has a row of windows, 'all oi which'are  stationary.at the bottom and arranged  to swing inward a few inches at the  top, thus any air through them will be  given an upward tendency on its entering the barn, and will not come in a  sharp draught upon the cattle standing near the window. In addition to  this many barns have ventilating ducts  for the admission of pure air from the  outside. These ducts are useful, parti  . culariy in extreme weather, when it  might not be considered prudent to I  open the windows behind tho cows. Except in the coldest nights, many farmers keep the windows in the monitor  roof slightly ajar for purposes of ven-  . tilation. ,'.���������..'  The floors of these barns for stock  are made of wood, cement, or various  kinds of artificial stone. In some  . mangers are built for feeding the cattle, while in others they are fed from  the cement floor, a concavity having  been shaped in the cement. , At the  end of the row is a waterpipe, and by  turning a faucet running water will  flow through the whole of 'this gutter  in front of the cows, for watering thcih,  and also for flushing and cleaning the  gutter. A similar device is frequently  constructed in the rear of the cows for  manure. Undervthis system of caring  ' for cattle the manure must be removed from the barn every day, and in  some instances is hauled at once on  to the land. Some barns are fitted  vvith a scraper, which runs the whole  length for gathering up the manure  and depositing it in ������i cart at the end  of the row.  The latest notion as to stalls ��������� is in  favor of box stalls. These allow the  cows greater freedom, the idea being  that cows do best when they are in  the most contented frame of mind possible; anything that tends to. promote  absolute content a!nd mental serenity  is reflected favorably at the milk pail.  Consequently, it is arglued that a box  stall fcr the cowa jjays better.   .  In the newest barn that we have  seen the partitions between the stalls  are constructed of two-inch galvanized  iron pipe. This is cleanly, and removes any objection that might be  raised to plajik partitions. r  tion of a barn can get more information from these ideas in, practice thun  by anj newspaper description.  AN ACRE OF HENS.  Go ahead and build one houso that  will accommodate one hundred fowls,  writes Fanny Field. Hut a partition  through the middle, and keep your  fowls in two flocks of fifty each. Divide  your acre into four j'ards and uso the  yards alternately. In the fall  plough up two of the yards and sow to  lye. As soon as it is up a few inches  put your fowls in those yards. The  rye will furnish green food until snow  comes, in winter whenever the fowls  can" get at the ground, and tho first  thing in spiing. Should the rye be  likely to grow too high in the fall, jusl  turn your cow in for a little while,  occasionally, and let her feed It.down.  Keep your hens on these yards until  ploughing time next spring;   "���������' <���������>-*<  ^^...-e,        .      _     hen turn  them into the other yards, where the  grass will be nice and fresh. LJlough  under what is left of tho ryo, and  plant the yards to corn and sunflowers. We have kept fowls in that way  ���������fifty in a flock, one hundred in one  house���������and there was not a case of  sickness among the old fowls' , during  the entire year. And wo made over  one hundred dollars in clear cash from  the sale of eggs fromi those one hundred hens; so wo do not; hesitate to declare that more than twenty-five fowls  can be profitably kept in one flock. No;  we didn't sell any of the eggs at  fancy prices; they were' sold at the  average price of twenty cents a dozen.  Ask yourself if you have an acre of  land.within the limits of your farm  that pays one hundred dollars, or even  fifty dollars. , t*  PREPARING HOR-SESFOR, MARKET.  No fixed rule can be> laid down, but  it is very necessary that the horses be  well fed. They must come to the auction with glossy coats, smooth hair  and must be well broken. . While  horses are being fattened for market  they must be given an hour's exorcise  daily. It is very necessary that  they should be taken to town occasionally so as to become accustomed to  steam and eleotric cars. No horse  should be younger than fives,.yoafs, nor  older than eight to bring a good price.  I Sill K ������   HOSPITAL FOR BIRDS.

How many Londoners know of the  Birds' Hospital.down in Norway ? says  a letter from that great city. A canary vvith a broken leg, your seedy parrot, your prize poultry with tuberculosis, your racing pigeon with .a touch  of "liver "���������each is welcomed theroand  restored.  This old institution is in charge of  Professor Vale, who .was led to the  closer study of birds' ailments" from  the fact that his own died under the  ordinary treatment. He made frequent  experiments with medicines, and now,  after fourteen years of study, he, considers himself capable of curing almost  any feathered creature suffering from  accident or ailment.

A NEW PROPHET.  lie I'rcdlcls Wire   lUsaslei-   for  <<r<*nt  Itrltaln.  Another new prophet has. arisen, and  after the- style of the late Mother Ship-  ton, has embodied his prophecies in a  more or loss "poetical" effusion under  thovcapti6n of "Cudmore's prophecy oi  the. twentieth century." Its author is  an Irish counsellor-at-law, who resideB  iii the United States, and like some  others among his fellow-countrymen  he has evidently no love for either  England or its people. His anti-British fooling is strongly shown in tho  dire' fate which he decrees for England during the next century. Ho  says:���������  .    .    .   .

Thero is a malady which boarte of a  learned appellation compounded of  two Greek words, but which is better  known by a homelier" and far more expressive name in the vornaouliiri, and  yet although this binomial disorder in  described in the dictionaries as "A  vehement desire .... affecting tho  physical health," it has not been as-  sighed a place in the Nomenclature of  Diseases for which the"Royal Collega  of Physicians of London is rosponsi-  ble, says the Lancet. The fact, too,  that homesickness, if impervious . to  drags is nevertheless in tho,highest  degree amenable to treatment, might  credibly seem to still further justify  its inclusion in the official glesssary of  the 1,053 natural shocks that flesh is  heir ,to. With regard to the etiology  of this unqualified compluint there  still remain several points requiring  elucidation, albeit in its genesis no  bacillus is concerned, nor for its adequate diagnosis is thero any ncod of  either  microscope or   test tu.be.    -  Shortly stated tho essential factor in  the production of nostalgia is an environment differing from that amidst  which- the affected person passed his  or her early days. , When this is the  case some intangible influence is generated which reacts upon the victim,  but just as happens In many official  maladies there must first be innate receptivity or preparedness of soil on tho  part of the individual who succumbs.  This receptive stato is favored by' at  least three separate things���������race, education and temperament���������but of these  predisposing causes the last possesses  less power than either of tho other.  Caeteris paribus,  PHLEGMATIC SUBJECTS  are more likely to experience homesickness than their sanguine compeers.  A tendency to despond, without sufficient cause undoubtedly subserves toward nostalgia, but ardent, enthusiastic people who continually look forward���������who never are, but always to be  ���������have tho advantage, if advantage it  be,  of remaining  immune.  Education, or rather the want of it,  is more potent than temperament, the  trend of civilization, which is equiva- ,  lent to, education, being distinctly in  the direction of cosmopolitanism. The  deeper the ignorance, the ruder the  conditions of life under which a human being exists, the greater tho probability when exposed to its influence  of his acquiring nostalgia. ��������� If an islander from Tierra dol Fuego, for instance, wore, to be transported to the  comparative paradise of the Gilbert Islands in the Pacific Ocean which have  been described as "a cluster of pearls-  hung upon the equator," ho would very  likely bewail his hard lot and pine  for his own inclement and inhospitable  wilderness, and if in like inaniier a  Pacific Gilbertian were to be promotod  to, say, 'Pall'".' Mall���������which, without  wishing to, speak disrespectfully of  the equator, we maintain to be the  more desirable abode of the two���������-he  also would no douibt soon break his  heart longing for the delights of his  sweltering hut in Micronesia.  But of the three predisponents race  it is which is the strangest und most'  inconsequential.        Anglo-Saxons    and  their Celtic brethren vary  their manners and customs  while abroad to    a  less extent proba'bly than people of any  other nationality, and yet in spite  of  this  they    make    the    best colonists.  ���������There is no human being in existence  Who can appreciate  tho charm of   _ a  home more exquisitely than the Celtic-  Anglo-Saxon, and yet he is to bo met  with in every cornor of the world. 'He  loves his    own    native    place  beyond  words, but he .can' endure enforced expatriation  without giving  in. to  nostalgia.     The fact is he recognises the'  futility   of kicking  against  the  pricks  iind so makes his mind up to sacrifice  a portion of his life  or  oven,  if    the  worst, come to the worst, the whole of  it.     For.'nostalgics we. must turn  to-  some  other tribe.      When ail is said,  they   remain    a narrowrminded \ crew  whose mental processes run in grooves.  They    may    call their ; failing by  the.,  high-sounding: name of patriotism, but-  such it is not.   ; <:'''.

STOP BOOMING.  ,. To sny  one word njr*iinsfc "booming"  In a country situated as British Columbia is at present is, in some  quarters, regarded as the unpardonable sin;  but,   none the   less,   we venture   the  opinion  that the government   should  take the initiative, to prevent it in a  note of warning.   At the present time  we believe the War Eagle, the LoRoi  and tho Republic mines are collectively stocked for some 520,000,000.   They  - are without doubt excellent properties,  the best in their respective localities,  as far as operations  have shown;  but  this a large amount of money.   Mining in  this country, beyond what may  be termed surface work, has not yet  been prosecuted, so what depth  may  do   is   simply   an   unknown   circumstance.     Every   one   who   takes   the  trouble to look into tlie matter must  conclude that it is a problem if ������7,000,-  000 .vol th  of ore  can be taken  out of  any of the properties named  by sloping the entire ground   as deep  as the  greatest depth yet reached ;  and what  is   below   that   depth   is   simply an  uncertain quantity.    But all the ore  mined in   a property   does not go  to  capital account or into dividends.   It  takes a rich ore body to declare one-  third of the output clear profit for dividends.   As  mining goes in  this district, it will take ������21,000,000 worth of  to make $7,000,000 profits, to say nothing of interest on invests  until those  profits   are realised.   . It is, therefore,  safe to say that caution should be advised,  and the government should be  the first in the advice.  We believe there are thousands of  properties in this cojantry investments  in which are as safe as in bank stocks;  but as whistles can be bought too dear,  so can mining properties.  Now, supposing it should turn out  that any of these named mines should  give out before this stock was realized  'by the holders, the amount is so heavy  it would mean disaster for many,  which would give the province a black  ,eye from which it would take it many  years to recover. The government  should look at the matter in this light,  and take some formal s>tep to give capitalists advice. When large blocks of  such stock get into the hands of prominent men, booming to enable them to  .make money out of the game is the  inevitable consequence; and at the inflated figures it is sure to fall into the  hands of many whose greed is larger  .than their pocket book. Shrinkage or  loss means ruin to them.  As it is the duty of the government  more than that of individuals to guard  the interests of the country, upon it  should rest responsibility for neglect  in all such matters.  As we said at the outset these are all  acknowledged the first properties in  their respective localities ; but deep  ���������mining has hardly yet been tried, and,  '..therefore, the probability of realizing  -such enormous sums of money from  any of them is at least a matter of uncertainty, and the government should  give the matter the stamp of authority.  Cramps and Colic  Always  relieved  promptly by  Dr. Fowler's Ext. of Wild  Strawberry.  When 3'ou are seized with an attack o(  Cramps or doubled up with Colic, you  want a remedy you are sure will give you  relief and give it quickly, too.  You don't want an untried something  that MAYliclp you. You want Dr. Fowler's  Extract of Wild Strawberry, which every  one knows will positively cure Cramps and  Colic quickly. Just  a close or two and you  have ease.  But now a word of  proof to back up thesa  assertions, and wo  have it from Mr. John  Hawkc, Coldwater,  Ont., who writes*  "Dr. Fowler's Extract  of Wild Strawberry is  a wonderful cure for  Diarrhoea, Cramps  and pains in the stomach. I was a great  sufferer until I gave it a trial, but now I  have perfect comfort."  NOT PROVEN.  This paper is not the organ of either  the mine owners or the miners, and as  a consequence we can afford to criticise  honestly and fearlessly withouf'offend-  ing our boss."   A contemporary, published within a few miles of this city,  got off  a declaration the other day,  which goes to show that all the Slocan  papers are not on the same basis.   It  was this:  "That the mine owners association are trying to force a reduction  of wages so as to increase profits."   To  be fair to the owners, we would say it  is necessary to back up that statement  with proof,   which   is   not,   however,  given.    Before  the late law was   enforced they got a certain amount of  work done by each miner per day, and  for which they agreeably paid $3.50.  They are, one and all, quite willing to  pay the same money  to day for   the  same amount of work���������in fact,  they  have offered rather better.   They did  not,   singly or collectively,   ask for a  change in the law.    A change, however, was made that reduces the value  a fifth, or thereabouts, and they are  .asked to pay  the wages they paid before for the reduced work and they refuse to do it.   They, singly and collectively, say to the miners to-day, "Give  us the former work and we will give  you the former pay." Some apologists,  with more rashness than common  sense, say that miners can do as much  work in eight hours as they did in ten.  Men who employ labor in any capacity  know this is not the case. If a man will  do as much work in eight hours as in  ten, why stick at eight hours? AVhy  not say he will do as much in six, five  or four hours as in ten," and make the  latter (4) a day's work ? Nobody ever  said that, under tho old order, the men  were underpaid. All appr.ircil satisfied until a few representatives, lacking in ability to make a mark in parliament, thought they could make one  by a purchase of the electors instead.  If the owners asked for this enactment, or if under it they were offering  less for results than they were paying  before, they would be open to the'een-  sure hurled at them by our confrere,  but not otherwise. There is not an  owner in the Slocan to-day, that we  know of, that would not be better  pleased to see the obnoxious law repealed and the men all at work as  formerly, than working under the law  as it is on ������3.00 shifts. All this goes  to show that they ars making no effort  "to reduce wages so as to increa&e  profits." _.  No one can attach blame to the miners for endeavoring to get the most  money for the shortest hours. Aa  things go, that is their side of the contract. Summed up the blame rests on  the shoulders of those representatives  of the House, who, for lack of ability to  make the mark necessary for popularity, resorted to this as a means of  acquiring popular strength.  MUNICIPAL INSTITUTIONS.  The more that is seen of the great  necessity in the Province for means to  deyelop local public improvements,  the more urgent the demand for better  self-government under, at least, elementary municipal institutions. While  the revenues of the country are comparatively stationary, the demands for  better school facilities and local  improvements are rapidly on the increase. Even though the country  should be well supplied with railways  and steamboat service the requirements of the districts are but imperfectly met. If we had not the hills we  have, the country would not have the  wealth it possesses. This latent wealth  is yet bound to make the province the  chief one of Confederation, and to develop it heavy expenditures must be  made. A mine may not be more than  two miles from a railway station or  steamboat wharf, as the crow flies, yet  What is Scott's Emulsion ?  It is the best cod-liver oil,  partly digested, and combined with the hypophos-  phites and glycerine. What  will it do? It will make  the poor blood of the anaemic  rich and red.  " It will give nervous energy  to the overworked brain and  nerves. It will add'flesh to  the thin form of a child,  wasted   from   fat-starvation.  It is everywhere acknowledged  as  The   Standard  of  the World. <  50c. and $1.00, all druggists.  SCOTT & BOWNE, ChemiMs, Toronto.  it may be distant several miles by conveyance, and the money to make the  roads can never be got with resources  as" they are at present. It is not too  much to say that our assesinent is_vpry  imperfect. On a moderate rate of taxation equitably distributed and no  omissions, three times the amount  would be realized that is, and this desired change can never be made at the  present long range from Victoria���������it  can only be effected by local officers  under municipal institutions. With  our sparse population, the territory of  each incorporation would, of course,  have to be larger 'than that prevailing  in other provinces; but in other respects much the same. Under that  system all real, personal and income  taxation should be given to the districts. ' The people would not so much  object to moderate taxation if they  only knew they had the expenditure of  the money m their own midst.  Our schools, too, are becoming a  very heavy drain on the government,  and cannot long continue as they arc.  More of the cost of their maintenance  must be be thrown directly on the people, and this can only be done through  municipal organization.  While under such a change the government would lose considerable revenues they now get, they could make  many savings by simplifying government���������cutting off many present unnecessary officials, abolishing the provincial police and many other supernumeraries. These changes have got to  come in the near future, and the break  might as well be made now as later on,  giving the public the benefits at tho  earliest moment possible.  As a last resort, after overtures to a  leading Turnerite had failed, the Sem-  lin government has sworn in Mr. Henderson, of New Westminster, as attorney-general. Martin and Higgins have  gone into opposition. Prentice is "out  of the House, so with Henderson elected Semlin's majority would be the  casting vote of the speaker, as the  parties now stand. With Henderson  defeated it would be in a minority of  one. How Henderson can hope to be  re-elected is a question to most people.  He was elected in the first place by  Turner's money, and he promised to  support the' Turner paity on a vote of  want of confidence. In'; Governor Mc-  Innes' dismissal of the Turner party,  he was furnished with a pretext for  betraying his friends. It cannot be  expected now the Turner vote will go  with him ; and going against him. as a  traitor will mean the defeat of the  Semlin government. On the other  hand it is likely that Brown, who opposed him before, will oppose him  again and he ought to get the larger  vote of each party. It may, however,  be that the ruse is a long reaching one  ���������a dodge to get Heuderson out of the  way altogether, and give the portfolio  to Brown, if elected. Who knows yet ?  In that event, however, as Brown is  not a lawyer, another constituency  would have to be openod for another  to take that portfolio.  Mr. Harris's proposition to pierce  the Payne mountain with a tunnel is  not such a difficult proposition after  all, considering the advancement made  in such work. With appliances now  in use the work can be done for ������4 or  $5 a foot, and by stoping each lead,  found on the way, to the surface, fresh  air would readily be continued on the  way, and an easy discharge' for the  rock secured. Millions are nothing  now in mining, so the means to do it  ought to be secured if the importance  and: feasibility of the scheme were  fully considered. No doubt many  leads now unknown would be tapped,  and as the proposition would afford a.  lower tunnel for them all.it would be a  basis for many new properties for the  future. There would be. no trouble in'  securing such legislation as would  guarantee the company undertaking it  a royalty on the ore of all properties  opened in this way, which it is reasonable to suppose would, in- a short time,  recoup the entire cost of the project.  The Nelson Tribune sets this paper  dewn as "the organ of the mine managers' union," and then draws a picture  of things in the Slocan to its own delight. Tne Nelson print has itself so  long been the organ of figurehead  Hume, that it cannot look upon any  other paper other than as "an organ"  also. \Ye may here say that The  Review is not an organ or even the  mouthpiece of the mine managers'  union or any other union. With this  correction the Tribune may go ahead.  Every woman should 'realize that her  health is like a bank account. At the outset she has so much deposited to her credit  in the bank of health. If she draws out  more than she puts in she will soon overdraw her account. An over-drawn account  in the bank of health means one of two  things, a life of hopeless suffering or an  early death.  The woman who neglects her health in a  womanly way is making big drafts on her  account with the bank of health and will  soon be a physical bankrupt. Disorders of  this description wreck a woman's general  health quicker than anything else In the  world. They soon transform a healthy,  happy, amiable woman into a weak, sickly,  fretful and despondent invalid. They utterly unfit a woman for wifehood or motherhood. For all disorders of this nature Dr.  Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the best  of all medicines. It acts directly on the  delicate and important organs concerned  in maternity, giving them health, strength,  vigor and elasticity. It relieves pain,  allays inflammation, checks debilitating  drains, and quickly subdues all other symptoms. _ It at once stops the dragging pains  aud sinking spells, the nervousness, the  digestive disturbances and other complications that arise from the same cause. Taken  during the months of expectant maternity,  it banishes the usual discomforts and  makes baby's advent easy and almost painless. It insures the new-comer's health  and a plentiful supply of nourishment.  Thousands of women have testified to its  marvelous merits.

CERTIFICATE OF SATISFACTION.  Alturas, Alps and Alps Fr.  Some Curiosities  of 'Our Calendar.  "As we are' at the beginning of a  year," says La Science pour Tous,  "there is still time to recall certain  curiosities of the Gregorian calendar.  Thus, since the rel'onnvol" the calendar  by Pope Gregory XIII, in 15S2, no century can begin with a Wednesday, a  Friday or a Sunday. Also the same  calendar can be used every twenty  years. January and October of the  same year always begiu with the same  day. So do April and July, aJso September and December. February,  March and November also begin with  the same day. New Year's Day and  St. Sylvester's Day also fall on the same  day, except, of course, in leap-years.  Each day of the week has served as a  day of rest somewhere : Sunday among  the Christians, Monday with the  Greeks, Tuesday1' with the Persian's,  Wednesday with the Assyrians, Thursday with the Egyptians, Friday with  Turks and Saturday with the Jews.  Fnally, the error of the Gregorian calendar, compared with the actual course  of the sun, does not exceed one day in  four thousand years. As it is ' quite  probable that neither you nor I shall  ever verily this, we'shall not risk very  much by.believing the statement."'  CHURCH    NOTES.  Methodist, Rev. A. M.

Mrs. Richard Rees, a well-known  andhighly respected lady of Belleville, Ont.,  had to bear the burden of kidney compla'nt  for over 20 years and now Doan's- Kidney  Pills have cured her when all else failed.  ��������� Her, husband made the following statement of her case: " For 20 years my wife  has been a sufferer from pain in the back,  sleeplessness and nervousness and general  prostration. Nothing seemed to help her.  .Doctors and medicines all failed, until we  got a ray of hope when we saw Doan's  Kidney. Pills advertised as a positive cure.  "She'began to take them and they helped  her right away, and she is now better in  every respect. We can heartily recommend Doan's Kidney Pills to all sufferers,  for they seem tostrike the right spot quickly,  and their action is not only quick but it is  permanent.  "I cannot say more in favor of these  wonderful 'pills than that they saved my  wife from lingering torture, which she iiad  endured for 20 years past, and I sincerely  trust that all sufferers, will give Doan's  Kidney Pills a fair trial."

"Now, my dear boy," said my old  friend and instructor, Lott, the famous deep-sea divor, who came forward  to close, the little glass window In my  helmet, ,"take good care of yourself, j  and don't stay long below. The cur- !  rente are swift."  "I dropped into the waves with 'a  eplash, sinking swiftly down through  the brilliant Sunlit waters which,  though rough and boisterous at their  aurfaco, suddenly grew calm as I passed, (below. v  "L glanced up at the sun, which appeared aa a great ball o������ fire, but '  growing smaller and smaller as I sank ,  lower, it finally seemed like a tiny red j  spark of a caudle, and thou faded from I  eight. !

"Great caution was necessary lest I  ���������   should  become entangled  among    the  ropes or caught  under    the    shifting  timbers,  and making  my   way  slowly  to   the companion-way  L  sent   up   the  ���������signal:   .

With the advent of i he bicycle knickerbockers seemed for a time a possibility, but the public sentiment was  too strong against this innovation and  it died, But while they are tabooed in  this country, there are parts of the  world where trousers are worn by the  women as a matter of course. In parts  of Savoy, the peasant girls,' gentle,  quiet, pious young women for the most  part, who have no idea they are doing  anything eccentric, and' would shrink  from attracting.' notice, wear regular  trousers, because their occupations,  which involve much climbing, make  skirts burdensome and dangerous.  Again, in the Tyrol, where the very  name of the Now Woman is unknown,  where wives are still meek and obedient, taking all the roughest labor upon themselves to spare the husbands  who rule the roost, the farmers' daughters, dairy maids and working women  generally wear corduroy knee breeches, just.like. the. men.  They may be seen by the dozen in  Kitzbuhel, - a delightful little village, not far from Innsbruck, with a  perfect climate resembling that of the  Engadine, and celebrated for its nerve-  soothing properties. It. is now being  opened up as a winter resort, and has  long been frequented in summer by  Austrians. At church or market all  wear.skirts, but doff them when busy  in field, or byre. They, are'' tall, well  built, broad-shouldered, strapping women for the most part, with well-turned limbs. These they incase in knitted, woolen stockings, mostly gray, blue  or scarlet, that make a brilliant: splash  of color against the background of  snow. They exhibit a profound indifference to,aught save convenience, yof  present-in general a singularly attractive appearance.

All of us who havo a  spark of humanity in our make-up are  sorry for tho really ill. But there is  another class of people, who aro, perhaps, even more in need of our sympathy, aud who too seldom receive it.  They are the people who, although not  dangerously ill, are yet far from well.  Happy is she who, during somo period  of her existeuco, has not belonged tto  the army of martyrs who havo been  " under tho weather " for so long that  their friends got used to tho fact, and,  it may be, in their secret souls rather  weary of it.  Perhaps ono of tho most trying  things about being only passively ill,  and that for a long time, is that the  patient becomes ashamed of her indisposition, aud is mortified that sho can  never truthfully say, "Vory well, thank  you I" to tho frequent inquiries concerning her health. Of course among  the lower class thero are those who  " enjoy poor health," aud who may bo  said to " glory in Lheir infirmites "������������������  though hardly in tho Scriptural senso.  But this is not tho class to be pitied,  except as we have compassion for any  poor, ignorant creature with distorted  views of life. ,'  But she who needs sympathy is tho  refined, educated woman who would bo  well if she could, and who keeps much  of her discomfort to herself.

She often works with a pel severance  and a nervous conscientiousness that,  her task accomplished, leave her vvith  flushed cheeks, shortened breath, and  trembling hands. "Just a little nervousness," she explains laughing. Or,  when urged to participate in somo  pleasure, she excuses herself with the  plea that she is " a little tired." Ah  how tired only God. njid, she know I  Perhaps it those she Loves knew all,  Ihey would not .speak as did a good  woman to such a never-ioally-ill. but  never-well sistor.

BLUSHING A DISEASE.  The general idea thai blushing is duo  to fullness of blood|.in=therbrain is incorrect���������according to tho new ���������theory  of a French export. It arises from the  relaxation of the arteries, of face,'neck  and b.'easl, thus allowing an extra  quantity of blood to rush to the skin.  Thoso arteries, have in their walls a  layer of rings of muscular fiber, which  contract or relax according to tho condition of the patient, und so permit  the arteries to become more or less  full of blood. Wheu they aro extra full  which occurs in weakness, the patieuL  blushes. -  Blushers are more liable to redden  in damp or stormy weather than in  the cold days of winter or tho hot days  of summer. If this glowing of the  face were -.'the-result' of emotion, why  this differencei If it be due to weakness, the fact assumes the appearance  of   probability. ������������������,,-���������.':������������������.'.  Thoro are two closely, allied causes  of blushing. One is named " ereutho-  phobla,'" that is the ordinary cause���������  weakness, and tha extreme sensitiveness and other conditions oaused by it.'  The other is designated "erythrophp-  bia," and is the. fear that ono will  blush unconsciously at awkward moments.  The-latter is a peculiar form of the  disease." The individual in question,  although hot given to blushing becomes gradually possessed with a fear  that he will do so at some inopportune time, and this fear grows upon  him until it completely masters him  and makes him grow red in the face  when there, is not the slightest reason  for it. ' ���������'- .        ���������.." '"j-. ������������������'  '-  At-the most simple question the color rises and he is" placed in the most  absurd situatiou. He is looked upon  with suspicion, because other people  accept his confusion as consciousness of  guilt, he recognizes the fact, and, of  course, his condition grows worse.  Weakness is responsible in this case  also, for the deplorable state of things,  for when Lhe sufferer is taken in hand  and gets " braced up," he smiles at  his  former fears.      .  It must be a very strong emotion  that causes a flush to come to the face  of a really healthy man or woman.  Whatever they may feel they will not  show it .any more than they will show  fear when confronted by great danger. In tlie latter case thero is no  doubt about the danger; it is fully  understood that there may be a feeling of fear within, but it is not shown  by Lhe face. A similar remark applies to the sense of shame under reproach. That feeling will not be betrayed by a blush, because the individual   is  not  afflicted  by   the  disease.  very recently���������buL thoir conclusions  have boon dispuled by other scientists,  and not ono of them, lias won the support of such a weighty body as the  London Pathological Society.  DR. LACK'S THEORY.  Lambert Lack, whose name bids fair  to become as famous as that of Puateur,  is honorary surgeon to tho Golden  Square Throat Hospital, one of the  most noted institutions,of its scope in  the world. For a long time ho has  been investigating'the origin of malignant growths, with particular attention to cancer.  Holding wilh tho accepted soienlifio  opinion.that cancer was the result of  a gorm, ho nevertheless worked along  lines radically different from thosfc  pursued by the majority of investigators in this fiold.  Aftor a series of tests covering sov-  eral years, ho discoveied that the  dreaded disease invariably began with  an injury of a particular characLor Lo  what is known as tho basemenL mem-  bruue of the mucous membrane aud  its allied structures.  Having arrived at this imporlant  truth, ho set to work to produce cancer  iu the lower animals, and succeeded.  NO CURE FOR IT' YET.  To produce a disease at will is the  first step toward finding the cure for  is���������such is tho paradox on "which the  entire fabric of bacteriology rests.  Ilenco it is reasonable to expeot that  in a short time Dr. Lack will bo in a  position to give Lhe world a serum for  the' cure of cancer and Lhus tako rank  among tho immortal benefactors of the  human species. r <  Like a true scientist he hastened to  present his discovery to mankind. Nc  sooner did ho consider that his tests  were'conclusive' than he submitted Lhe  whole thing to a select commiLtee of  the London Pathological Society.  And now Lhe society itself has declared its conviction that Dr. Lack ban  disclosed that secret for which savants  have been groping over since mon first  began to enquire into the nature of  disease.  ..CANCER A MYSTERY.  During,  the ..'past:  quarter   of' a century,  while medical science  has    been  marching    forward'- nobiy    in      other  branches;   it  has  been   at a standstill  so far as the knowledge of cancer was i  concerned.   The primary, cause of  this .  horrible disease was amystery as deep  as   Lhe  origin of, life   itself.  Surgery, on the other-hand, has progressed wonderfully in its.'..relation to  cancer, and in the surgeon's,knife has  rested the only hope of those afflicted.  It;;'is only a few months since Dr;  Bra, of Paris, believed that he had  isolated the oancer germ, which was  described as a parasite of the fungoid  type. This alleged discovery, was dig-,  credited, however, by the learned: Pro?';  feasor Curtis, of Lille.' -        ���������..,���������"'���������  WOOL FROM STONE.  ADJUNCTS OF DRESS.

It is the most ingenious little novelty for a wedding or  birthday  present.  Director of Census William R. Mer-  rlam was educated at a Racine school  modelled on English lines.

The air was  . sickly with the smell of blistered paint,  - the brass-work was fiery hot, and took  the skin off tho hand that for a moment unconsciously touched' it; ther.  pitch was like putty between the seams;  tho fresh water in the scuttle-butts  was warm as nowly-drawn milk, but  quite without, dairy fragrance. It was  time, indeed, for tho wind to blow. The  mere detention was nothing in those  pleasant times of groping. In cooler  chines the mate would have been sat-  ��������� isfiod to whistle for wind for a month,  and go below every time his walch  > was up with.a feeling that he had done  everything that was necessary and that  all was well. But the heat made an  enforced resting-place off the Cuban  heights insufferable.  It was half-past eight o'olock in tho  l������ morning watch; the hands had come  ap from breakfast and were distribut-  : td on* various jobs about the deck.  There was not a breath of air; but  there was a run of glassy folds from  the south-west, which within the past  hour had somewhat increased in  weight; and upon these long-drawn  hoavings, the ship, that was a mero  tub in form, as all vessels were in those  days, saving, perhaps, the piratical  barco longos, rollod as regularly as a  pendulum swings, swelling out her  canvas to one lurch, only to bring it in  to Lhe masts again at tho next with  sounds like the explosions of nine-pound  e.rs in tho tops.  The captain of the City of Glasgow  was a small fiery-faced' man, with  deep-set eyes that glowed liked cairngorms under the shaggy thatches of  the brows, a noso that not a little re-  Bembled a small carrot both in shape  and hue, and a mouth with a set of Lho  lips that indicated a highly peppory  temper. He' walked to tho mate, who  stood near tho wheel fanning himself  with a great straw hat.  "When is this going to end, sir?"  " I don't know, sir."  " Blood, sir 1 Is there no limit to  calms?

" Right astarn," was the answer of  the man, swinging with one hand from  the tie as he pointed with the other  directly ovor the taffrail to the gleaming haze of sea-line thero.  " Well," said . the skipper, " that  should bo a sign there's wind somewhere about."  ' 'It is some craft," said the mate,  " that may be bringing a draught of  air along with her."  " Don't talk of a draught of air, sir,"  eaid tho captain passionately ; " what  we want is wind, sir, a fresh breeze���������a  gale���������a howling hurricane, by thunder 1 H'an't we. had enough of cat's-  paws? Draught of: air 1" he muttered  under.his breath with a look of loathing in his,eyes as he made them moot  in  a squint upon the compass  card.  But the mate was right on one aide  of his remark at all'events. What  the fellow aloft had sighted proved to  be a ship climbing the shining slope  to the impulse of a breeze; but it was  not until her royals were trembling  like stars above tho;horizon, with nothing else under them shewing, that tho  people of the City of Glasgow caught  sight of the line of the wind darkening  the waters in the south-west. In half  an hour's time it was blowing into the  canvas of the West Indiaman, raising  a pretty tinkling sound of running  waters all around her ; and though it  came warm as the human breath yet,  after the long spell of hot and tingling calm, it put a sense of coolness  into each fevered cheek turned  gratefully to the quarter whence it  came:   If ever the crew of the City of  away our colors and keep all fast.  Five minutes laLer, tho stranger  fired again; but observing .that no  notice was taken of Lho summons, sho  waited until she was within range,  then, yawing, let drive with such good  aim as to bring the West Indiaman's  mizzen topgallant-mast down with a  run. The sight of the wreckage struck  a panic into the soul of the little fiery  captain.  "Down stun'-sails; man.tbo braces!"  he roared ; "bring her to, or he'll founder us."  la a few moments the. City of Glasgow lay with L^r foretopsail to the  mast, docilely waiting for what was  to happen.  IL was not long before the ship had  ranged alongside, and she then proved to be a great fifty-gun man of-war,  an Englishman on a "West Indian  cruise, with crowds of piglailed heads  looking over her bulwarks forward,  and a quarter-deck brilliant with the  quaint naval uniforms of Ihat day���������if,  indeed, it can bo said that any approach to a uniform was then established. A stout man in a cocked-hat,  white silk stockings, ��������� handsomely laced coat, and a big white wig, mounting on to the rail of the man-of-war,  clapped a ' huge copper speaking-trumpet to his lips and bawled out, "Ship  ahoy I   What) ship are you ?"  The little peppery captain sprang on  ten a hencoop and answered. "The City  of Glasgow of London, from    Havana."  "Keep your topsail to tho mast; I'll  send  a  boat,"  cried  the  other.  "A boat?" cried Lhe little chap, turning to his mate. "What does he want  to- send a boat for? Docs he question  my papers ?���������Zounds! if there be any  sort of ��������� law still agoing in the old  country, I'll make him pay for that  mess up there;" and be sent a fiery  glance  at  his' topgallant-mast.  The boat plunged from the man-  of-war's side; a crowd of sturdy fellows armed to the teeth, jumped into  her; a young marine exquisite, with  a hanger on his hip, and a cambric  pocket-Zhandkerchief in his breast,  his laced hat airily cocked upon his  head, and a flash of jewels upon his  fingers, took his place (in the stern-  sheets, and with a few 'sweeps of Lhe  long o*ars, tho boat was alongside.  The dandy lieutenant stepped aboard.  "Why did you not heave to," he exr  claimed in an affected drawl, "when  you were summoned by our cannon 1"  "How did I know what you fired  for?" cried the irritable captain.  ','Look how you've seived me;" and he  pointed   aloft.  " 'Pon honour 1" exclaimed the lieutenant, "you deserve that we should  have sunk you." He applied the  scented pocket-handke ��������� ef to his  nose, as though he coui not support  the smell of the hot pilch and blistered paint rising into the atmosphere  from' off the Indiaman, and exclaimed  in a voice as if he should swoon, "Muster your men, sir, and for tho Lud's  sake  be  quick  about   it."  The little captain fully understanding the significance of this order, was  about to remonstrate, hut seemed to  change his mind on catching the  glance that-was shot at him from under the seemingly sleepy lid of the  languid, perfumed sea-dandy, and repeated the lieutenant's order to his  mate, turning sulkily on his heels  afterwards, and starting off into a  sharp fiery walk betwixt the binnacle  and the inizzeh rigging.  The, boatswain's pipe shrilled to the  silent; hollows of the canvas aloft; the  men stood along, the deck, and the  lieutenant with six armed seamen at  his back fell to picking, and choosing.  The man-of-war wanted twenty men to  complete her complement, and of,  these the Indiaman must' contribute  ten. There was no help for it; and  the little, captain had presently the  mortification to witness ten of his best  seamen descend the side with their  bundles and bags and enter the boat,  which forthwith carried thean aboard  the fifty-gun ship.  One of these ten men was a tall  handsome young fellow, whom no one  who had before known him could have  failed instantly to recognize as .Jeremy York, spite of his assumption of  the name of Jem Marloe, of his long  hair being cut short in front and rolled! into a tail down his back, and of  t'he hue of it, that had been a sunny  auburn, being now whitened as though  dusted with powder. He was the second of the ten men to step on board.  It was not only that he was the most  fixed upon one of these sailors; his  bundle fell from his hand, his face  turned to a deathlike white, shiver  after shiver chaaod his form, they saw  his fingers convulsively working, and  his eyes, filled with" horror, dismay,  inoredulity, seemed to start from their  sockets with the intensity of his stare.  They oelieved he was seized with a fit  and would fall to the deok in a minute ; and amongst those who  sprang to his assistance waa  the fellow on whom his gaze  was riveted. Ho shrieked out at his  approach, and fell upon one kneo trembling violently, swaying to and fro,  to and fro with his hands pressed  to his eyes in tho posture of ono wild  almost to madness.  "Is tho man ill?" bawled a lieutenant from the quarter-deck. " If so, bear  him, below, and let^the surgeon attend him."  York staggered on to his legs, and  looking at the man at first sight of  whom he had appeared to have fallen crazy, he cried, in a weak, faltering  voice. " Your mame is Worksop? You  were bo'sun of a West Indiaman."  Tho other, full of amazement, with a  slow bewildered stare at York and then  round upon his shipmates, answered in  a hurricane'note, "That's so: I ain't  ashamed. My name's Worksop, and I  was bo'sun of a West Indiaman. as yo  say."  " Look at me 1" cried York. " O man,  look at me I What have I suffered  through you 1 Do not you remember  me?" ��������� .  I  Anyone would have laughed outright to have witnessed the perplexity  that lengthened yet the longdrawn  countenance of Worksop. '"  " What's all this ?" cried the lieutenant in charge of the deck, coming  forward  angrily.  " Sir," shrieked York. " I. have been  hanged for the murder of that man I"  " Mad, by Heaven 1" cried the lieutenant, sunstroke, no doubt. Take tha  poor devil0 below, and  see to, him."  " Sir," cried York, clasping his hands,  " I beg you to listen to me one minute. I am not mad indeed. Mr. Worksop there will remember that one night  more than "eight months ago he gave  me a share of his bed at an inn at  Deal called the Lonely Star.",  Worksop started and looked intently at the speaker.  " I quitted the bed to get some water ; when 1 returned, my- companion  was gone. Blood was found in the bed;  there, were bloodstains down the staircase, along the roadway to the beach;  there was blood upon my^.shirt, although as God is my witness. I know  not how it came there. They found his  knife upon me, which I had taken from  his pocket whilst he slept to prise open  the door with; and also a gold coin  belonging to him they found, though  how I came by it, I vow, before Heaven, I know not; and on this evidence  they hanged me!"  He faltered, hid his face, and fell to  the deck in a dead faint.  " Hanged him, hanged him for me I"  shouted Worksop in the voice of a  man about to suffocate. "Hangedhim  for roe I" he repeated. " But, lor' bless  my soul and body I I was never murdered, mates I" and in- a very ecstasy  of astonishenmt, he hooked an immense quid out of his cheek, and flung  it overboard.  " Bally this poor . fellow, some of  you," exclaimed the lieutenant, 'and  hastened aft to the captain to make  his report.  A bucket of cold water topped with  a dram of rum served to restore York  to consciousness; and when he had  his wits, he and Worksop were conducted by "a midshipman to the captain's cabin.  "What is all this?" inquired the gray-  haired commander, levelling a piercing  glance at York, as though he made up  his'mind to be confronted by a madman. "D'ye mean to tell us that  you've been hanged for the murder of  yonder seaman alongside of you?"  "Yes,- "sir; I've been hanged as his  murderer;" and thus breaking tho silence, York proceeded. He told his  story in good language, plainly and intelligently, with an occasional.catch of  his breath and a sob or two when he  spoke of his sweetheart.  "You were hanged," cried the commander, watching him with a fascinated countenance, for the corroborative  looks and nods of AVorksop as York  delivered his tale had soon abundantly  satisfied the captain that the poor  young follow was speaking the truth���������  "you were '' hahp������.d," he repeated,,  "strung up by you neck in the. customary style, I siipr^e, and left to  dangl" *������������������!��������� the usual time,  you are alive!"  ! ���������":.

"Years ago I was a rover in Australia,'.' said a former member of the  dramatic profession, "and I dallied  for u while with tho dramatic muse,  and somewhat successfully. Then,  metaphorically speaking, I piped on  oaten straw, like the Arcadian shepherd, and dropped money in wool.  Then I delved in the mines for the  dross of gold, and didn't find any. At  last I made a fortunate strike in tallow, nnd for a time revelled in the  charms of nature and learned to bunt  the kangaroo. I learned a good many  things about kangaroos.that are not  in the books���������for instance, that the  bushinen trained kangaroos to be horse  and cattle thieves, kidnappers, highway robbers and the like. I say I  learned that, but perhaps I had better say that the good people I mot  during my career as a gentleman  sportsman in Australia told me such  was the case. I nover had any ocular  proof that there were kangaroo cattle  thieves or kangaroo highway robbers,  but 1 shall believe in kangaroo horse  thieves und kidnappers until my dying  day.   I'll toll you why.  "While I was living this life of a  gentleman sportsman I was quartered  at a little settlement at Boort Run,  right in the kangaroo country. To  hunt kangaroos seems almost like going out to run down and maul the  life put of a few of your decent relatives,  but '���������  THE KANGAROO HUNT  was the chief recreation of the gentleman sportsman in Australia' the time  I was there, and as I had become a  member of that order of citizens, after  making my pile in tallow". I, of  course, had to hunt kangaroos. You  hunt kangaroos on horseback, and you  have to sit on your horse like a star  circus rider, too, or you will never  hunt kangaroos more than once. You  are apt to be lassoedl out of your saddle and left hanging by your neck at  the end of some drooping vine aa you  pass through the country, and if you  keep your seat as your horse dashes  over n stretch of ground made picturesquely irregular by a million big  ant hills, you stand a chance of being  tipped out of it Into an adjoining tract  of down timber and treated to a run  across country with your foot in the  stirrup and your head playing shinny  wiili logs and boulders. Then, when  you get into a nob of kangaroos������������������half  a dozen or so "kangs" together make  a nob���������you may havo the luck to tackle  what they call a regular up-aud-up  boomer, and if you do���������well, say I If  you do, you will begin to have your  doubts about your caring to be a gentleman sportsman in Australia. An  up-pnd-up bocmier, or a bloomin' old  mun, as some call him, is a leader iu a  nob of kangs, and there's more fight  in him than there is in a barrel of  Sixth ward rum. If tho bloomin' old  man gets the squeeze on you and is  inclined to stop the fight right there  and then, he'll put on the piessureand  crack your-bones as you would crush  a soft-shell almond.  "It isn't sportsmanlike to bag your  kangaroo with a gun. Your weapon  is a short but heavy club, and, as you  charge your game, tho object is to deliver a blow with the club that will  neatly break lhe kangaroo's neck.  Dogs trained for the purpose harass  the game aud get it in position so  that you can the better and surer deliver  '  <  THE DEATH BLOW.   .

A parrot, in a remote country district, escaped from its cage and settled on the roof of a laborer's cottage.  When it had been there a.little time  the laborer caught sight of it. He  had never seen such a thing before,  and after gazing in admiration at the  bird, with its curious beak and beautiful plumage, he fetched a ladder and  climbed1 up it with' the view of securing so great a prize. When his head  reached the level of the roof the parrot flapped a wing at him and said;  AVhat d'ye want? Very much taken  aback, the laborer politely touched his  cap and replied: I beg your pardon,  sir ; I thought you were a bird J  i rather the form of a pursuit, for, when  i first seen, she was apparently head-  to the north-west; but scarcely had the  West Indiaman to the first of the  breeze trimmed yards for the northeast, than the stranger was observed  to also haul her wind.  The fiery little captain did not like  It.   Whai was she?   A Spaniard ?    A  JTrenchman ? A Dutchman ?   He packed  ���������>������ on  studding-sails,  but  to  no.purpose,  for the fellow astern   came along hand  ously about them, savagely resentful  of this impressment and of their liberty as merchant seamen being abruptly ended without regard to wages,  to cherished hopes, to their homes,  their wives, their sweethearts, their  children ashore. A number of the  ship's crew stood near ,the mainmast  watching the new hands as they went  forwards marshalled by the boatswain.  On n sudden Jeremy York was seen  to,'come to a dead stand with his eyes  A young doctor and a girl of nineteen committed suicide in a Vienna hotel, having first bequeathed their jewelry; which they declared was " imitation," to the chambermaid who attended them. The latter cared so little for  the trinkets that she bestowed them  upon a friend. The friend has discovered that the jewelry is genuine, and  worth almost ������5.000. The chambermaid  has begun suit'for the recovery of the  gifts, declaring that they were .given  away under a misapprehension of  their value.  It  requires a.good  deal   of  skill   and  dexterity to strike the right spot and  at    the    same  time    guard    yourself  against  the assaults of the kangaroo,  for  he has  his eye  on  the  chance  of.  getting  in  a blow    on. you   that  may  send you  sprawling  from your horse.  "1  got so   that  I could  handle    the  club, and the horse pretty  well  on    a  kangaroo  hunt,  and  rather  liked   the  exciting  sport  until     ono   day  I   ran  foul of a kang that was following    a  life of outlawry,  and that spoiled me  for  kangarooing.    A party   of   us had  gone up the run five or   six miles kangarooing.      We had five dogs and ran  suddenly   into a nob   of seven  kangaroos.     The leader of the nob was the  up-and-uppest    boomer,  the   bloomin'-  est old. man I had ever seen  except a  Lame  kangaroo  that, belonged  at   the  settlement,  and    that tame  kangaroo  beat   anything,  they    said,   that    had j  even been seen in Australia.     It was  taken when only  a few days old  and  grew to an enormous size, and had the  run of  the  settlement, and  the whole  country, for that matter.     Everybody  knew Danny Dee, as the big tame kang  was called, and Danny seemed to know  everybody   nnd everything.      When  I  saw   the  big  leader, of  this  mob  rise  before  me,  I couldn't help   but  think  that he might be Danny Dee's brother.     He rose to receive the attack of  threo  of  our  dogs,  and he   stood  not  less than eight feet high. He gathered  in  each  one   of  thoso  three  dogs    as  they  sprang    at  him  and  laid    them  down in one, two, three order, without  a  whole    bone    among    them..     This  bloomin' old man seemed not only willing  but  anxious to join  in  a general  fight with us.     One of our party killed his kangaroo, but all the rest of the  nob  except   the  boomer  fled  to     the  bush.     There were three of us hunt-  era, and we all charged apon the boomer, the two remaining dogs having followed lhe fleeing nob. I can't tell you  how it was done, but that big kangaroo yanked my two companions out of  their saddle as  QUICK AS A FLASH,  and away their frightened hors������s went  over the plain. Their unseated riders followed them, and I was left alone  to have it out with the bloomin' old  man.  "Say, he didn't wait to take breath,  but leaped on me and grabbed ma  round the waist before I could play  my"club,.but he hadn't got his squeeze  on mo when I brought my club down  on his head. That staggered him and  forced him Lo loosen his hold on me  and tumble from tho horse, but he took  with him half of one trousers leg and  a big chunk of skin from my thigh.  He had no sooner struck the ground  than he sprang and caught the horsa  around tho neck, and was effectively  shutting off the poor boast's wind  when 1 pounded the kang loose with  my club. It seemed to me that old  boomor was just more than enjoying  tho fight, and it struck me that he  had an object in all he was doing beyond the simple fact of wanting to win  tho fight. Failing in his attempt to  choke the horse to death, he drew.off a  few paces, looked me and the horse  over, and at once made up his mind.  He came toward me with a tremendous bound, and as I raised my club to  meet him with a blow he feinted and  landed on the horse behind me. Before I could move a muscle he had my  arms pinioned to my sides as if they  wero in a vise. I suppose, from the  way the horse sprang backward, that  the kang stuck his claws in tho horse's  flank*. At any rate, away over tho  plain we. went like the wind, headed  for the bush. At first I struggled to  free myself, but I found that Lhe more  I struggled the tighter grew the clattp  of the kangaroo on my ribs, until I  was afraid he would squeeze the life  out of me if I didn't quit, so I quit.  "On we went, deeper and deeper into  the dense bush, and further away from  succor at every bound. Then it  struck me all at once that I was in  the clutch of a - kidnapper kangaroo,  the trained agent of some savage tribe  of bushmen, although up to that moment I had rather doubted what had  been told me as to the way bushmen  induced kangaroos to become outlaws  in various lines. With this prospeot,  before me I made up my mind I might  as well be killed trying to free myself from the kangaroo as lo wait until  tha bUBhmen fell foul of me, and I  began to struggle more desperately  than ever, and  SHOUT-LOUDLY FOR HELP,  although I hadn't the least idea there  was any suoii thing as help within ten  miles.  "When    I   began    to    struggle the  boomer   began  to    squeeze,  and as  I  kept  on    struggling,    he  had    pretty  nearly "squeezed the .breath out of me,  and there isn't any doubt but that the  next hitch he would have tightened on  me    would have    cracked me in two.  But that hitch never came.   All lean  remember  about  it   is  that  I saw    a  giant rise ahead of us, a little to one  side of the horse, grab the bridlo and  fetch us all up a-standing.   I felt the  boomer release    his    hold   on me and  beard him drop from the horse.     The  giant at the hor-so's head dropped the  bridle, and when 1 turned my head to  see what all the commotion was I saw  two gigantic kangaroos in combat. The  combat    was   short.     One  kang    lay  stretched lifeless on  the  ground.  The  other  turned and came  toward me.  I  almost fell out of my saddle, for who  should it be but Danny Dee, the giant  lame  kangaroo  of  Boort  Riun  settlement.     Happily for me he had been on  one  of his strolls  that day,  and happened along in  the bush just as that  kidnapping boomer was rushing me to  his destination.     Danny recognized the  hoVse and me, knew what "the "trouble  was, and that was enough.     He stepped    into   the rescue,  and    healt  out  vengeance    with    a   merciless    hand.  Danny led the way back to the settlement, and when I told how he had saved me from being kidnapped ho was a  bigger  Hon  than   ever.      But  that  it  was a fact  that kangaroos were  thus  corrupted    and  turned    into  ways  of  crime saddened me, and I never went  kangarooing  after  that."      ,  .
