C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  I  Business Begins to Brighten in the  Lakeport Town.  It is now evident there arc. better  days in store for this beautifully situated town at the foot of the lake, nestling snugly within gradually retreating  mountains en three sides, and the outlet of Slocan Lake running through it  lending picturcpqueness intensified to  the scenery. In a word it is one of the  most beautiful townsiles iii the whole  country, and large enough for-a place  of 100,000 people. The native evergreens of the flat afford ample opportunity to make residential plots as  beautiful as one can desire there nt  very little cost. The strcnmi from the  hills offer plenty of opportunity for a  ���������water system for all purposes at a very  moderate cost.  Another advantage lho place possesses is the amount of ar.iblc hind in the  suburbs nnd nil the wny down the river j  valley with lho railway convenient; (or  any,point. There is ample, opporlun-  ity'here for the production at small  cost of n hirer* amount of market gnr-  ' den ."-tuff, the maintenance of Inrgo  dairies -'rid the growth of much hay  and grain besides, to s-iv nothing of  fruits of all kinds indigenous to the  countrr. In all these respects Slocan  City ismosl favorably situated.  Though a spurt wn������, made in mining  operations in the vicinity in the earlier  days, it was dropped a couple of years'  ago, nnd the place took a relapse that  brought, unrest to the business people  and citizens in general. Now again,  however, the wealth of the surroundings is being guagcrl by the shrewdest  capitalists and mining men, and ns it  is more than standing the moil careful  tests, cm pi tn 1 is cooiing in rapidly.  The surrounding rock is for the most,  part granite, giving width and, according to the best information, depth to  tlie mineral chutes.'  All told it is believed that half n  million of oi^side capital hns como in  in the past few months,, nnd where investments have been made work is  being actively prosecuted. About 75  men are regularly employed on tho  properties, bought or bonded, and  eon-ic 50 more are working on properties and prospects of their own. Among  the investments and working enterprises are the following :  The Skylark and Ranger have been  bought bv Percy Dickenson, of New  York, nt .930,000, and have now 14 men  working.  The Chapleau hns been bonded nt  $35,000 by J. M. Williams. There are  14 Mien working, and there is enough  ore in sight to pay for the property.  The Arlington is working 15 men  under the new directorate of Victoria  and .Nelson men.  The Black Prince, owned by local  parties, is working 10,men and has the  best showing of any property in tho  camp.  The Tamnrac is bonded by Eastern  men nnd hns 8 men working.  The Bank of England and the Two  Friends owned by local parties have 5  men at work.  The Evening Star, owned by Hugh  Sulnerlrtnd & Co., has 14 men working  and who, have lots of ore blocked out.  'The Calumet and Hecla have 4 men  working, aiu*l are likely to be bonded  in a few days.  ��������� The Kilo, owned by AfcNaughton, of  Silverton, is likely to be bonded in a  few days. If has a lurge body of free  milling ore.  The Exchange is crown granted and  owned by the Tuppers yndioate. They  lire starting up again.'  The Blendfield claim, owned by Mr.  Balko, will soon be on the, list of ship-  ���������jvpera., ..- - /  ' Tho Gameronian- has one of the  largest ore bodies in the country and  is only waiting for capital to take hold  of it! . Nearly all of these properties  have either shipped or have ore ready  for packers.  Rented to have altitudes respectively of  25,200 nnd nearly 24,000 feet, mid even  quite recently to approximate these  heights, have left the question nn open  one. The present observations reduce  these elevations to 21,710 feet (for the  highest peak of the Sorato or Illumpu)  and 21,015 feet, a result strikingly in  nccord with that obtained by Mieliin���������  21,470 nnd 21,224 feet���������and about  equally correspondent with that derived by the English geologist Penf.-  lnnd from his revised triangulation  conducted in 1S39, which gave 2J.2SG  feet for the Sornta and 21,145 feet for  Illimnni. The absolute altitude of  Aconcagua is, perhaps, still in doubt,  but the measurements of .Fitzgerald  and Zurbriggon, made during" their  late successful nnd unsuccessful attempts to attain the summit", would  seem to give the mountain a height  fully equal to that which had been ns-  sumerl or it by Fitzroy and Darwin,  28,200 feet, nnd about a thousand IVet  more than was claim eel by the Spanish  engineer Pissis (22.452 feel.). The Sor-  nlannd Illimnni now not impossibly  also yield second plnce, as a number of  summits, boll) in northern Chili and  in Bolivia, arc close competitors, and  have nt least the advantage of being  reputed to be more lofty.  Enrolls More Members at the Meeting in Sandon This Week.  I01R fflfflll.  The Minnesota Silver Co. to the  With Extensive Improvements,  Fore  As   a   result   of   the   recent   visit  of    tho    Messrs.       Yawkey   to   this  city,   the    Minnesota   Silver   Company  hnvo decided to go on  with tho  construction of their proposed 100-ton  concentrator nt  once.   The   course of  the tram from the Ivanhoe mine to the  proposed site  for the concentrator,  at  the west end of the town, has been surveyed for some time. 'The mill will be;  situated where it will have,  an   ample  supply of water Tor hau-Iliug the ores,  not only of the  Minnesota Silver Co.'s  propertv,   but also those of   (he Sunshine group, lower clown the valley, to  which   a tram   will be built   Irom' tin*,  concentrator later on.    Mr. Bartlcti, a  capable' and   experienced   millwright  from Montana, is  now in  the city   to  superintend construction  on the most  approved plans.    The best  machinery  money can buy from the most  noted  factories will be put in the mill.  The Minnrgotn Company have now  commenced a 1100-toot cross-cut below  No. 4, their present lowest tunnel and  main entrance to the workings, that  will give them 250 feet more vertical  depth. Thoy are also fitting in a live-  drill air compressor to drive the tunnel  and prosecute lurcher work. The  Me5sis. Yawkey, who went to Spokano  some days ago, are returned Thursday  and may remain until [the workings at botii the tunnel and the concentrator aro put under way.  Some five or six more mine owners  joined the Mine Owners' Association  at the meeting this week, so it means  that the mines will be almost a unit in  whatever stand is taken on (ho labor  question.  Wo have no authority for .saying so,  but still believe our surmise from the  first is correct���������that the government  will be induced to suspend the penal  ���������'���������Jnuses of the net, nnd thnt the mines  will start within a few weeks ns they  were before���������on eight, nine- or ton  hours as may be agreed on. The. owners do not object to an"eight-hour law  or eight hours ns the basis of payment,  but they do to tho pcnnl cLuim's that  tie up the liberty of the subject. We  should not be surprised i1 in the meantime, the government and the mine  owners jointly submitted these clauses  to tho Privy Council ;n England ior  their opinion as to the validity of the  law. t The mines, under suspension of  the penalties, could be operated all tho  same while the matter wns being e.on-  (Sivered in England.  It is whispered in some quartern that  more   than   the   rilooau   owners   will  shortly   be in the  association���������ils in  ilnencu will be provincial in extent.  There nie other matters under the  consideration ot the union, but at the  last meeting tho lead eiuestion took up  most of the time���������tho consideration of  how lend and lead ores may best reach  American anil other markets with the  least restriction.  races began  about 3:30 and   with the  following results:  Boys' race under 8���������1st, Allie Mc-  Arthur; 2nd, John McDonald.

The picnic  broke up about G o'clock. Thero were  cash prizes to the amount ol i?S.50, besides a number ol articles contributed  by Iricuds in town.  The managing committee, in behalf  of tlie school children, wish to thank  the ladies and gentlemen who so generously assisted in various ways to  make their picnic a success.

Aug. 4���������A party of union  men from Sandon went up to the Antoine mine yesterday and compelled  the men working there to stop work.  The Antoine mine was working the  men eight nours in the mi'io and two  outride, which was objected to by tiie  union.  J. O. Ryan arrived hero Inst Wednesday Irom the Ki&t and went up io tne  Tom Mooiv mineral claim, which is  sdiu to be looking very well mil has  some ore ready lor shipment.  A cabin will be built on the Lone  Jack, and work will be proceeded with  this month.  Two men are now working at the  Red Fox mine. Some high-grade ore  will probably be shipped soon Irom  this mine.  Experts have been in  the city  some days looking over the Star.  Deals are on for the Marion anel  Mountain Chief properties, near New  Denver.  We understand there arc but two  men igetting ?3 50 a day for underground work at the Ajax Fraction.  Manager Sandiford. of the Bosun, refused to sign a paper guaranteeing  S3 50 a day to the miners, and a shut  up, sive two non-union men on contract, is the result.  Mr. G. XV. Hughes banded a  group of claim*, the other day on  Paddy's Peak, close to the Jackson  basin, and about five miles from this  city. A payment of $5,000 was made,  hut. the full amount of the bond is not  made public.  The compressor plant of the llam-  hlcr-C.-iriboo is now in running order.  Last month three enr loads of ore were  shipped to the smelter, which will  average about S2.S00 to the ear. It is  supposed that dividends will bo paiel  by October 1st.  It is not n fact, ns stated by the  guichitc last week, thnt the Selkirk  company are going on with operations.  They want to raise "M,000 by the sale  of stock, or otherwise, to extend a tunnel to tap the lend. When they get  this money they will go on.  Messrs. J. D. and G. Kendall are registered at the Arlington hotel. They  arrived here last Friday and have been  out to look at the Kilo claim on the  first north fork of Lesion creek, for the  London & B. C. Goldliolds Co. The  Kilo's ledge is somewhat similar to the  Chapleau and runs in tbe neighborhood of $100 to the ton. It was on the  strength ol Mr. Kendall's report that  his company took over tbe Enterprise  mine on Ten-Mile, and his presence  hero now shows that, ihey intend to  interest themselves more in this Drom-  ising division of the Slocan.

The reverses of the  Oro people  gave a   set back   to   the  mines in   the vicinity of the Golden  Wedge.   However,   it was a-case of  ���������mismanagement from start  to  finish.  Tke affairs   of  the company   are   in  other hands, now  and an effort will be  made to see that the money   of  the  company is spent where it will do tlie  most good.

P. E. Seelye returned a few days ngo  from the AU-.xanelra-Delley mine which  is situated   on the 2nd   north   fork  uf  LctKon creek.   This property  is being  worked  in n very oarclul way, and the  management   has every hope   that it  will soon prove to be a rich mine.   A  car track and car have recently  been  installed iu the lower tunnel which is  in 230 feet.   Five men ure at work and  are exposing some very rich ore.   The  last assays went as high as -J378.   Tho  vein of this rich ore is IS inches wide,  it can be traced for 900 feet on the surface  and gives every promise of being  continuous.   Sixty feet mote  drifting  on the present tunnel should locate the  main  orecluito at a depth of 250 feet.  No eil'ort is being  made now to  turn  out ore but a larger staff of men will  be put on shortly and within a month  the mine should   become   a shipper.

It was whispered amongst  the crowd that she was Jenny Bax, the  murderer's sweetheart; und several females who recognised her as she  walked away, exclaimed that, for all  her mourning and veils, sho could not  but bo an unfeeling-person to come  and view the gibbet where hor sweet-  h"art was to be strangled, even if the  had not mado up hor mind to witness  the whole aceno from bohind one of  those 'sandhills she was ' skirting in  such a hurry.

As he  could not lift the latch of the door,  he searched Mr. Worksop's clothes,  not choosing to disturb the man, who  had shown himself querulous-"and  grumbling, as though in pain,- .'and'  found a knife, with which he succeeded in opening the door. It was a  littlo past two o'clook when he returned to hiB bedroom ; a faint light  I>euetraied the window from the oil  lamp outside, which enabled him to  see-rial the bed was empty. He also  took notice that Mr. Worksop's wearing apparel, that had lain upon a  chair, was gone. He was somewhat  surprised, but concluded that Mr.  Worksop had been awakened, as he  himself had, by the heat, had dressed  and walked forth bato the night, and  that he would return presently. He  got into bed again, but lay sleepless,  until, hearing some disiant clock strike  four, he rose, clothed himself, took his  bundle, and left the house, carrying  away the boatswain's knife, which he  would have left behind, had he. remembered that it was in his pocket.  He was unable to account for his possession of the Spanish piece of gold,  wlrich the wiinessi-s swore had belonged to Mr. Worksop; nor could he explain how it was ihat there were  blood-stains .upon his shirt, in the bed,  on die floor, not to rnentin the marks  wbrill temiinaled at the waterside.  Having heard the evidence, the magistrate committed him to take his trial  for wilful murder at the. forthcoming  assizes   to  be   held   at   Sandwich.  There  was proba'bly  but one  person  living   at   that  time   who  believed   in  Jeremy York's inhucence, and this was  his sweetheart, Jenny Bax.     The wi-  !(i'ow  ila'x,  after much mental  swaying  la', nii.-l   fro,  arrived  at  the  conclusion  that    the    youth    was guilty.      How  could it be otherwise? she reasoned, as  '. did all otners who discussed the mat-  ter.

But what  had he done with the guineas,  to obtain which, of  , course,    he  had  committed . the    dreadful    deed?       Well,  that was a thing not   to   be conjectured.   It was strange, no doubt, that the  money should not have been found upon him when he was searched; for   one  might well think that  if he had; been  artful enough   to   conceal    his   booty  somawhere on the road to the widow's  cottane., he would have taken care   to  Vll.  In the days in which Jeremy York  flourished the gibbet was a much less  conventional detail of the civilization  of the century than tho gallows now  is. Pirates and blood-stained smug-  giftrs were, to'be sure, hanged in chains  upon gallows erected on Thames mild.  Execution Dock and the lower reaches  were fixed points in Jack Ketch's' programme when it came to maritime  tragedies or felonies committedi in tho  homo waters round about the coast  within convenient distance; but the ordinary land-going felon was again and  again "turned off" in places adjacent  to the scene of his wrong-doing.. There  flicmed to tho old-fashioned intelligence a sort of poetical justice in  hanging a man within view of the spot  where...according, to the ferocious laws  of those days, he had earned his bitter  title to'the halter".'  ���������In conformity th-en, with this practice, it w-as decided that Jeremy York  should be hanged on a gibbet erected  within musket-shot of Sandown Castle;  that is to say, within1 a mile or so of  th-3 old wooden structure on to which  hv! had dragged the bleeding body of  th.; hapless boatswain, and from which,  with horrid secrecy, he had committed  it. to the sea. .      ' .  It was a windy melancholy morning,  sombre with the stoop of dusky weeping clouds sweeping outl of the. north-  i-ast, with an edge of frost in their  occasional showering of wet. The sea  ran a dark hard green under, their  shadow, with a ghastly glaro of froth  along the horizon \vhere> the surf was  boiling upon th-2 Goodwin Sands. The  sandhills were dusky with crowds of  people, who had assembled to witnesss  the- fine show of a hanged man; many  full of curiosity, congregated close; io  lb������. gibbet, that stood back and horrible like a hideous signpost pointing  thi road to Death, with the rope swayed by the wind dangling from the. extremity of it. But tho mass of the  mob sacra id to 'give it a pretty wide  berth, as though it,was an object to be  best admired from afar.  One might have noticed, however,  that, amongst the people who lingered  in the immediate vicinty of what, used  to be called the fatal tree was a .knot  of some eight or ten 'persons, whom  ihv least observant eye might have  suspected were present from a motive  thai, had little reference to curiosity.  They were most of them young men,  with a certain air of resolution in tbe.ir  manner; they conversed very earnestly; they might havo been observed to  measure t.he height of the ������vrm of the  gibbet from tho ground, the length of  the rope, and the sua' -m ������--i><������r������> a>-.  ing the half-hour in which he dangled.  Ths crowd looked on; what the group  of men were trying -. to effect they  might have guessed; but whether the  criminal should be ultimately saved or  immediately throttled was all the same  to the mob, as it was apparently to the  sheriff. It'was an execution anyway;  this was the'sight that the people of  Deal and Sandwich and of7 adjacent  hamlets hid covered the sandhills to  witness, and be the issue of .the spectacle what.it: would, there was nothing  to disappoint thjra in the presentation  of ir. '        , ���������.'���������-.'  At ths expiration of half an; hoar,  tim-2 was called by one of the men who  crowled round the motionless body; the  sheriff signed to t'-.e executioner, who,  springing forward, severed the. rope,  and the body fell into the outstretch-  arms of those about it. A minute  after, a small cart, containing a shell,  was brought fo the gibbet, the, body  was plaqed in it, five men of the group  who had clustered about the pendent  form sprang into (he cart, and within  a few moments the vehicle was being  driven rapidly in the direction of Sandwich.  7     (To Be Continued.)  A YOUNGER SON'S SUCCES.  The case of a'younger son is usually  pitied in England, but there was a  notable exception in the case of the  family of the late Earl of Mansfield,  who died worth some 55,700,0:0. Viscount Stormont, the father of the first  Earl of Mansfield, the great judge, was  one of the poorsist lords in Scotland,  long been a by-word in England. This  and ".as pour as.a Scottish lord'-' has  younger son; William Murray, born in  1705, one of a family of twelve penniless children, rode off to London on  his pony to attend Westminster school,  and never, it is said, saw his native  land again; but he left an earldom  and a vast fortune to bis eldest brother's heir. The liarl who recently died  was the fifth of the title, and the  sixth  Earl  is his -brother.  P  ���������;::l'/> ���������nr.^vKT.vv :y;Aiiu.  LINGO OF THE COOP.  C'lilcbon   Talk   TUat   Hiimnn . Itclii^s   C'hii  (tuh'kly I.cju-ii to Comprehend.  It is a strange language that human ears learn readily to comprehend.  For the most part it is instinctive. A  fuzzy toddler six hours out of tho shell  has five distinct calls. The first and  loudv*si of them is the lost note, uttered when he loses sight of his mother  or finds himself out in the cold. It is  loud and very shrill. The second, the-  hunger note, is as shrill, but more  plaintive. Afa soon as eating begins  it changes to a sort ol s.ilislied chit-  tering.  Aftei  eating they   grow sleepy, and  cry    lo to    be   hovered.      The now* is  .      **  somewhat like that of hunger.with    a  peculiar, tremolo breaking it in lhe  middle. Very iarely do the mothois  disregard it, though they may be eager,  to go foraging over grass plots or  down ,hidgerows.  Tha fifth note, the chir-r of flight or  astonishment, is the quaintest of all.  Th.; chicks themselves appear to find  something in it distinctly humorous.  When they are a fow days old, if a big  wriggling worm or a fat juicy bug be  thrown to them with their usual food,  they will first draw away from il,  chir-r-ring in concert, then, after cye-7  ing it a minute, seize upon it and toss  it about with faint, immature chuckl-i  ing cackles. This chir-r develops at  lasi in the grating call of warning, at  sound of which from their.'-'mothers-  even the youngest scatter and s.'uttlo  to cover.  Anything; a bird, a kite, oven a very  small passing cloud sailing in the sky  overhead, will evoke, this warning cry.  Let one nen sound; itl and every other  will lake it up. Often, oftener than  not, indeed, the alarm is a false one,  but Cimiuries of hawks have impressed  upon lath feathered mind that "danger  comjth out of the air," and they govern  themselves accordingly.  Everybody knows how hens clucks  to their bioods, but it may be news lo  many that, though a hundred hens  may bv* clucking iu the same inclosure^  the voice, of each will be individual and  unmistakable to her immediate family.  A chick just out Of the nest may not  be aide to discriminate, but lei him  follow for a day and he is past making  mistakes.  Even more wonderful, is the,, hen's  abilily to differentiate her brood from  all the rest. With spiteful, iil-tem-  pjred fowls this often1 leads lo pitiful  barnyard tragedies. An intruder,  feeding peacefully among chicks of his  own size, shape and color, has often  been slain with one single blow of a  sharp and ailgry. beak.  A codi, especially a game cock, or ono  of Spanish , breed, has a' wonderf til  variaty of orows. -By moans of them,  indeed, ha, runs the whole gamut of ox-  pr.Sjion���������hope, fear, defiance, triumph,  love, hate, .rage, vanity, and a fine,  ineffable conceit.  It is Ihi ��������� hens without families,  though, that are the true barnyard  gossips. Any fine day, outside moulting time, you may sue them, standing  in groups, their heads close together,  chuckling and chattering like so many  blackbirds, or else wallowing in light  earth, pecking lightly as they scratch  and wallow, and evidently finding it  good sport to throw dirt over each  other.  A hen, save when setting,will wallow alone. And when setting she is  not normal, but a ragged, unkempt  and very ��������� ill-tempered shadow of-herself, scowling and pecking v.t whatever  com:s near her.   .  IMPROV  CIDER.

Last week, in the presence . of some  eighty chiefs and headmen, at Harding,  writes a Natal correspondent, were  hung two natives, Umtauti and fc'ibal-  weni, for a murder which sent a  thrill of horror throughout the country. Umtanti, and his pupil Sibal-  weni,'-.followed the repulsive' calling of  witch doctors, and a few mouths ago  murdered a European farmer, Kay, for  lho purpose of obtaining certain parttj  of.his body for the manufacture of lovo  charms.

Murders of this description, though  by no means common, occur from  lime to time, and, at a recent date a  littlo child, who mysteriously .disappeared, from its parents in the Bar-  burton district, was supposed to hiivo  been stolen away by natives for the  same .purpose. Umtanti, the doctor,  who was something of a South African  Charles Peace, confessed to other murders which had not been brought to  light, including the chief Umsliwesh-  we.'s sister. His face is in keeping  with'his character���������crafty and cruel to  a degree. H':s pupil, Sibalweni, also,  has a repulsive face, while the other  two men, Gomfi and Umbonwa, v.- ho-  received life santences, have a plcasan-  ter appearance.

"I am sixteen," said Alexia Ardell  resolutely, "and I was put unto long  dresses last month, and I've a right to  come down into the drawing room to  reo cofm-pr-iiny. And I am sure that  pipu would lot me, if he were here,  and I willl"  Alexia stood in tho middlo of tho  floor, with her fluffy golden hair  falling over hor eyes, her checks glowing a mild pink/and hor wholo pcrson-  nello indicative of rosolvo and determination in tho extremest degree.  Mrs. Ardell looked at the girl in do-  spair. Tho two Misses Scarlett, her  daughters by a former marriage, and  Alexia's not particularly beloved stepsisters, sat as stiff and prim as two  carved marble images." Alexia's temper was proverbial ia tho family, and  these very proper and precisely behaved young women were wont to affect  the greatest -dismay at 'its vehement  giusls.  "Alexia," said Mrs. Ardell solemnly,  "Ln your dear papa's absence it .is my  duty to enforce his precepts and carry  out his discipline. You are a groat  ���������deal too young to receive visitors, like  Verona and Ermengardo. You are to  go back to boarding school to-morrow."  "But," cried Alexia, in dismay, "my  holidays do not expire until Wednesday."  "That is very true," said Mrs. Ardell, compressing her thin lips ; "con-  ��������� sequonlly, you win see how far you  have abridged your period of recreation by your ungovernable will."  Alexia, forgetting all about the six-  , teen years aud tho long drosses, burst  into   loud weoping.  "Pray, Alexia, don't be silly," said  Verena.  "One would think," tartly spoke up  Ermongarde, "that you were a child  of ten years.     Of course, it is all for  your own good "  ���������'My own fiddlesticks I"  irreverently  intorruptod  Alexia,  as  she  fled  from  tho    apartment In  floods of undigni  fied tears.  But numbers are certain to conquer in the long run, and so Judgo Ardell's daughter was packed remorselessly off to school, and Mrs. Ardell's  two girls returned to their consultations with the dressmaker'for tho coming ball.  ���������Verena, a pallid blonde, with cold,  watory-blue eyes and colorless flaxen haii-, was to wear blue.  Ermengrade, who had a little more  bloom, and ventured to call herself a  brunette, had chosen pink satin, whilo  tho niatron herself, no bad exemplification of the poat'a idea of "fat, fair  and forty," was to wear ruby velvet,  richly trimmed with point applique  lace, and a diamond cross, which, in  the absence of her husband, she had  hired from an accommodating jeweler  for the occasion. '���������'���������  While" Alexia���������poor, ..broken-hearted  Alexia !���������was sent ruthlessly to the  railway station., where Miss Gardiner,  the governess, was telegraphed 'ito  .meet hor.  But Miss Gardiner, as it chanced, did  not receive the  mssaago in .time,  and  -was not there; and;Mr. Herbert Helullyn was there-."  Alexia knew him very well.

"Not laughing at you, Miss Ardell,'1  he hastened to explain, "only with  you I"  "Miss Ardell I"  Alexia's heart leaped at the first  delicious tribute to her young ladyhood. Shefelt prouder still when Mr.  Helullyn helped her into his carriage  and they drove away.  "Leave me   at   the   corner   of   the  street, please," said Alexia.   "It would  never'do for mamma and the girls to  see   me  in  your carriage I      And  Er-  'mengarde would be so vexed 1"  And so the wild little gipsy stole in  at the area gate, and bribed the cook  with a kiss and a string of amber  beads, not to.betray her surreptitious  r*-entrance . into the family circle,  while Mr. Helullyn went home to wonder what' there was so fascinating in  iAlexia Ardell's round, dimpled face and  liquid,, dark eyes.

But Alexia only arched her eyehrows  and smiled. .  During that eventful , evening the  child had bloomed'out into a woman.  Alexia had discovered her own talisman of power.  They could none of them ever scold  or tyrannize over her again. Sho had  no more fears of being sent back to  boarding sshool.

A   FEW POINTS ON CANNING  FRUITS.  To some people canning fruit is one  of tho biggest bugbears of their household duties, says Emma R. Makemson.  They dread it, and from the timo tho  first berries and cherries matco their  a'ppearance, until the last peach and  pear have beon taken care of thoy live  in constant fear of thoir fruit fermenting and spoiling. With myself, while  it, is a work that I have no fears as  to/the result, it is always satisfactory  ���������always what I intend il shall be���������  a Success.  In canning fruit for sauce, I measure into my preserving kettle only  enough raw fruit, as near as I can  guess,' to fill one jar when it is cooked. This method may seem very tedious/ to some, out in the end it pays,  for in this way the fruit has a chance  to be thoroughly, cooked without  crowding, and the danger of cooking  iii too much-is'"'also lessened. To save  time one can have several kettles over  the fire at once, shut do not: try to  expedite matters by cooking a large  quantity of fruit altogether. I have  seenf it tried a nutnber^of times; with  always the same result!; if not absolutely sour when opened, it would be  0/ flat failure.'  Another important -point which  should be carefully watched is to have  tho jars perfectly air-tight, and in using,the self-sealers, if the tops do not  screw on sufficiently tight with one  rubber, add an extra one.: This should  remedy the trouble which is caused by  the- jars being uneven or defective at  the- mouth.  '��������� ���������  After the fruit is canned, protect  from the light by wrapping paper  around each jar, or, better still, fill  the! boxes the jars came in when purchased, and set in a place with as little change of temperature as possible  There will be no danger of its spoiling if it  has.been properly cooked.

POT ROAST AND BUTTERMILK.  Farmers' wives cook too much bacon,  says a writer. I find occasionally a  piece of beef boiled or roasted and sliced oold is a welcome change in diet.  It can be cooked in the cool part of the  day. f.t gravy is wanted, save the  juioei and thicken at dinner time. We  are very fond of a "pot roast." Boil)  a nice piece of beef or mutton, vory  tender, and boil down almost dry, then  fry brown in the kettle, in its gravy.  Turn oftien. When it is brown all  over, take up and thicken the gravy.  Some people object to pio, but two or  thro* fresh pies baked in the morning  are delicious for dinner. Stale pies  are1 not good. Boil plenty of x*otatoes  at noon. Chop and fry in butter or  meat fryings for supper. Buttermilk  is a good warm' weather drink. Have  all the vegetables that you want to  use brought in before the sun shines  hot, and peas, beans, beets and onions  can be gathered and' prepared .the  evening. before they are to be used.  I can rest luxuriously and shell peas  or i.strihg beans in the evening. I like  to have everything as cool and inviting  as possible, after the long, hot siege,  that the men have bad in the field.  Do not for anything have them eat  in the warm kitchen. A lovely place  to eat can be made under the shade,  with mosquito netting.

Some were as small as from four to  six inches, but grew slightly afterwards. They havo all the appearance,  of old trees, and do not iook as if they  had been forced or cut in any way.

Tho magic power of iK-������ei������as stonta  is a belie! dating back to the ,������sicient3,  The gift" of oloquenco is bestowed by  the sardonyx, and Disraeli wore a ring  set with this jewel upon all occasion*  when ho wished to electrify auditon  and win now adherents to his cause  That this belief in the stone goei  back into tho centuries is evidencod by  the fact that Pliny tells -a story of an  impecunious lawyer v/ho hired a sardonyx with which to defend the caus������  of a cortain fair widow possessed ol  great wealth, and ho succeeded in winning both his cause and tho widow at  one ana tho same time. V.  Tho Princess Louise of Lome wears  a ring set with sparkling jet as one  of her talismans, which is supposed to  have singular efficacy in preserving  heultb. So superstitious is the royal  lady that sometime? she will not attend public functions, as agreed upon,  upon the plea that she knows it will  be one of her bad days. Quite aa_  much as she treasures her jet ring  does she value and consult the cardi  which aro regularly sent to her from  Paris. Theso cards are issued at tha  beginning of each year, and give a list  of the " days and hours to be avoided*  during tho coming twelve-months.

It is reported t<  have fallen from heaven, in the lim<  of Mohummed. Among other properties it has also the power of rendering its wearer invulnerable. Domi  tius' hero used to wear a lock of hl<  wife's hair about his neck, thinking it  was beneficial because it was amber- ,  colored.  Although many people lielieve_ thai  pearls means tears, the RothscElldi  family refuse to believe that their fati  may bo influenced by precious stones  Upon the birth of every girl Rothschild baby six pearls are purchased,-  each costing ������500; upon each birth*  day six more pearls are added, so thai  when tho young woman makes her debut she possesses a casket of magnificent   gems.

Agate, which insures long life, health  and prosperity, is the good omen worn  by the German Emporor. The young  Czar ot Russia wears a ring in which  ho believes is embedded a bit of the  true cross. Once while traveling from  St. Petersburg to Moscow he suddenly .  found that he had forgotten his ring.  The train was stopped and a messenger sent flying baok in an express engine for it.  That "the ring of death" belongs, in  Spain is ominous. It is a rare and  beautiful ring, but it is never worn  nor kept in anyone's possession, as it  is considered worse than the evil eye.  This fatal ring hangs about-the neck  of tho patron saint of; Madrid in one  of tho most beautiful parks of the  Spanish' capital. , It is of pearls and  diamonds, but there is no special provision made for watching it, as a  superstitious people like the Spaniards  prefer to give it a wide berth,' : and  thero is no fear or hope; of its being  stolen. The story of the ring is a  tragic one. It w'as made for the  father of (he.present boy King and  ho presented it to Mercedes upon tha  day of their betrothial. Her married  life was short. Queen Christina, the  King's grandmother, next wore tho  ring but shortly aftor died, aiid the  King gave it to his sister, Infanta del  Pilar, who died'within the month following. The ring then passed to a  daughter of tho Due de Montpensier,  and in less than three months she,' too,  died. The King, fearing Its influence,  put the. jewel in his own treasure box.  Before the year, was out he died, and  it was thought beat to put the* ring  away from tho living, hence it was  hung about the neck of the statue,  where, its history being so well known,  it is deemed to be as safe as though  surroundod by  a cordon  of police.

HOW CAN IT BE CURED?  Mr. H. Ilirsehel Cohen, a   mining  man of much experience,  addressed a  meeting of tho Board of Trade  of Victoria, the other day,  and among other  things  ho advised the retention of, as  much  as possible, our gold at  homo.  <��������� This, of course,   refers   to   tho   other  precious metals as well.   His advise is  that which all   patriotic   British Columbians endorse, but the idea is, what  is a practical plan for carrying it out'?  It means that our mines be retained by  British Columbians, or Canadians, as a  limit.   Before  Canadians   to any  extent could be induced to see there were  minerals in thi3   country worth hunting for, Americans had stepped in and  captured  many properties.   They are  in turn transferring many of our larger  properties to English capitalists which,  of course, they have a right to do.    In  the operations and deals,  from the  locations to  the shipment of the minerals,  all the benefit British Columbia  gets is a  small piovincial revenue and  a share of the money spent  in wages  and purchase of supplies���������all the dividends go  to enrich capitalists  in the  ���������United States and Great Britain.   This  is  the draw back to the country,  and  the way to cure it is the problem.  ��������� Eastern Canadians arc as a rule slow  to   step   from  the   old   beaten   p*uh.  JIanv of them  have made  a considerable sum in manufacturing for   agricultural  enterprises   and  commercial  pursuits, and they are disposed   to invest it in what they consider   the old  Cramps and Colic  Always   relieved' promptly by  Dr. Fowler's Ext. of Wild  Strawberry.  When you am seized with an attack ol  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 MAVhelp you. You want Dr. Fowler's  Extract of Wild Strawberry, which' every  one knows will positively cure Cramps and  Colic quickly. Just  a dose or two and you  have ease.  But now a word ol  proof to back up these  assertions, and we  have it from Mr. John  Hawke, Coldwatcr,  Ont., who writes.  "Dr. Fowler's Extract  of Wild Strawberry is  a wonderful cure for  Diarrhcoa, Cramps  and pains in tho stomach. I was a great  sufferer until I'gave it a trial, but now I  have perfect comfort."  They next carried it to the Privy  Council and liaye won, tbe highest  English court deciding that the province has no power to pass such an act.  Every man must admit it is not desirable that Chineselaborshould.be encouraged in the province, yet in dealing with it the local government must  be directed by its constitutional power.  For the same reason, it is evident to  many of the best legal minds of the  country that if the eight-hour law was  carried to the Privy Council it would  meet the fate that overtook the Chinese Act referred to, not that the government has not the power to pass a  law regulating a statutory day, but it  has not tlie power to cripple the freewill ol the subject as the penal clauses  of this enactment fully does.  safe way. Thoy know but little about  mining, and as a result they aro very-  slow to invest that way.  It is a, fact patent to eycry one that  had British Columbia mining been left  to Canadians alone, to the present the  Kootenay would be the unknown land,  except to the,bears anil other wild animals a few of which still remain. Instead then of blaming or endeavoring  to cripple the American enterprise,  that has done so much to develop the  country, it should be commended, and  , our Canadian brethren should be  educated to do likewise. Then in this,  Canadian newspaper men get, in their  rapid flights are doing considerable to  educate their constituents to the situation ; but the subject is too large and  comprehensive a one to be learned  even partially in a few flying visits.  It appears to us that if the mine  owners, who require capital, and prospect holders of the country would only  send samples to all,the industrial fairs  that will shortly he held in the eastern  provinces, with a sufficient quantity of  plainly written, comprehensive literature iii the hands of a capable representative, who would lecture upon our  resources in all the cities and towns of  the country, it would be the most satisfactory means of accomplishing the  desired end. There is plenty of money  in eastern Canada to meet the needs of  this country, and their home requirements as; well, and if the results from  careful investments were only made  known in this way by honest, capable  lecturers, it would socn arouse sufficient interest to turn ample capital this  way. The great benefit in securing  capital from Canadian sources: is that  many of the profits of dividend circulations' would flow this way as well as  the expenditures for labor and supplies.  quarter of a million dollars a year. '  As the senatois are selected by the  party in power, thoy will naturally rc-  flicl, in votes, the views of tho party  that selects them ; and when the idea  is to swamp' the independence of that  body by the vote of the commons, it  would be just as well to leave the legislation wholly to the commons and  effect a heayy saving.  A change in the electoral divisions  at any time other than when the con-  stion provides for it,after the taking of  the Dominion census, would be a  itrctch, if not a violation, of the constitution for partizan purposes. It is  well that the senate choked off this  evident piece of partisanship. In the  natural course of things thero need be  no general election until after the next  census, and as a result there is no constitutional necessity for tinkering with  the make up of the constituencies till  then.  The Silvertonian persists  in arguing  one side of" the labor situation and otic  side only.   It is readily granted that a  miner   cannot  make  any   too   much  money here at   S350 a day; but the  main objection to the law is that it will  not allow the miner to earn relntivelv  for the owner also.   For instance, he is  not earning relatively for the low-grade  property, with long packing, thnt was  barely  able to run on  10-hour shifts,  nor yet for the prospector who has not  yet found ore.   The.damaging feature  is,, it so cuts off  the liberty of two  men   that ��������� they   are   prevented   from  making a contract between themselves,  that may  be equally satisfactory and  advantageous to both.' Dividend paying properties  can meet the  changed  conditions readily, but all  the Slocan  properties are not yet dividend payers.  AND OTHER INVESTMENTS.  Every Representation Guaranteed.  When a man gets down  flat on his back, so that he  has co be carried about like  a baby, he finally realizes that he is a sick  man. Very frequently he has been a sick  man for years, but has recklessly refused  to rccoR-nize nature's warnings. .Severe  illness is something that does not strike a  man like a flash of lightning. It creeps  upon him by degrees, and at every step  warns him with a new danger signal.  When a man feels "out of sorts" or  "knocked out," or whatever he maycall it,  he is a sick man. It is time to take warning. Headaches, drowsiness, loss of sleep  at night, loss of appetite, neivousness, bad  taste in the mouth in the morning, and  frightful dreams���������all these are warnings of  encroaching illness. Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery creates appetite, cures  dyspepsia, stimulates the liver, purifies the  blood, quickens the circulation and tones  the nerves. It makes rich, red, lissuc-  buikliug blood. It builds firm flesh, but  does not make corpulent people more corpulent. Unlike cod liver oil, it does not'  make flabby flesh. On the contrary, it  tears down and excretes the unhealthy tissues that constitute corpulency, and replaces them with the firm, muscular tissues  of good health. It cures 9S per cent, of  all cases of consumption. All bronchial,  throat and kindred ailments, as lingering  coughs, spitting of blood and weak lungs  are cured by it.

After all the profusion of promises,  the Federal government has dropped  the Senate reform and re-distribution  measures for this session, and, for the  welfare of Canada, it is well it is so.  The drift of the first measure was a petition, to the home government to so  amend the constitution that a majority vote of both Houses combined was  necessary to defeat a measure passed  by the Commons. The idea was suggested by the defeat of the notorious  Yukon railway bill by the senate, last  session. Summed up it means that  the will of the commons should prevail on all occasions regardless of the  wishes of the senate, or in other words,  that the senate is to register the expression of the commons under all circumstances. In substance it means  the senate is useless, and with that  idea to the front, would it not be much  better, when a change in the constitution is being made, to abolish the senate altogether and save the country a  It would not hav been amiss if an  inquest had been held on the remains  ol Ellis C. Williams, who was killed in  the Sovereign mine on Friday List, not  that there is the leiifjt suspicion of foul  play or even negligence in any quarter,  but. there is no coroner in the whole  Slocan country. Until Crouso, the injured man, has sufficiently recovered  to talk clearly just how the accident  occurred will not be known, as there  were but three men around the working at the time, and the third, the  mucker, was some distance away when  the blast went off. It is evident there  was either carelessness ������������������ or' lack of  proper precaution somewhere, and  quite likely all the particulars would  be brought out at an inquest, which  might prove of much-service in. the  camp hereal'ter. As we have said,  however, there. is 110 coroner in: the,  district. Lieut.-Gove'riior-Meliihes'caii  get 510,000 a year to keep up style at  Government House, a foreign company  can get a million for a cable, but the  most important industrial district is  left without a coroner, for the sake of  economy. Instead of fighting Will o'  the Wisps in thcTIouee, these are the  matters that should have the attention  of our representatives in the House.

It is a surprise to many  that the people stand that kind of monkeying with  their finances.  A recent dicision of the Privy Coun-  oilsliould teach the legislature of this  province that it is not all powerful.  Some time ago the legislature passed  an act restricting the employment of  Chinamen underground. The Dunsr  minis carried the matter to the courts  of the proviuce.and they were defeated.  Why is it 'chat nearly all  aged persons are thin?  And yet, when you think  of it, what could you expect?  Three score'years'of .wear  and tear are enough to make  the digestion weak.

The Bpced of the. trans-Atlantic  steamship continues to advance by  steady increments and the time of the  ocean passage is curtailed hour by  hour. That most successful ship, the  "Kaiser Wilhelm do Grosse," of the  North German Lloyd Company, has  now for the third time, surpassed the  record foinierly held by "Lucania" for  the highest average speed from New  York to European ports. This mark  stood for several years at 22'01 knots,  and was first broken by the "Kaiser  Wilhelm," which covered the course at  an average speed of 22-S knots, a performance which she subsequently  eclipsed by acnieving an average of  22-59 knots.  On her last trip the same vessel  ran from Sandy Hook Lightship to  Cherbourg in 5 days 20 hours and 55  minutes, the exact length ol her course  being 3,190 miles. To do ' this the  "Kaiser Wilhelm" must have maintained an average speed, day and night,  of 2205 knots, or 26 land miles per  hour. The most remarkable all day  nm of this vessel was made in May,  1S9S, when during a west-bound trip  she covered 5S0 knots in one day at an  average speed of 24'17 knots an hour.  The best previous all-day run was that  of the "Lucania," which covered 560  at an average speed of 23'38 knots.���������  Scientific American. .-:,'  WHAT D11. A..E. SALTER SAYS.'  Buffalo, N.

Hunter���������  Trap Iu Which llu Is Taken.  " Sailor  though you may  have  been  for a score of years  and never given  cause  for  a man  to  call  you  coward,  there comes a tinio whon you fool tho  creeps and your knees grow weak," said  u man who wa& a whaler once. " That  tuoio  is when you  look  ovor  the  rail  of a ship rising and falling on a calm  B&U and' find a big hainmerhoad shark  looking up into your eyea. The white  Bhurk  ia voraciouH and  merciless,  but  th*j  tigor of tho se-i,  as tiie hammerhead ia called, is worso than that. Ho  is the most repulsive looking fiili that  pwims. fie   will   fcake   up   tho . trail  of  a ship like a bloodhound, and his per-  oLstency  is   menacing   and malignant.  A   white  shark  can  bo  frightened  or  beaten off, even after seizing his prey,  but   the   hammerhead shuts   his  jaws  , like a bulldog and will be out to pieces  before ho will let go.   A man in   tho  water may dodge the rush of a whito  shark, but tho tigjjx never misses his  mark.   He hasn't the speed of the other,   but Lt  is  his  slower   gait    whioh  roakos   him   mora  certain   of   hia  victim.  " While the haininerhead shark may  be caught all along the Atlantic coaat,  hits true cruising grounds aro in the  tropical seas. To gel among the biff  ones you pxusL voyage up the Bay of  Bengal or coast along the great barrier reef of Australia. You will find  Lhe white shark there, too, but the  Lvvo species never run in the same  Bchool. I do not know that they quarrel whon thoy meet, but certain it is  that  THEY AVOID EACH OTHER.  Et ifi seldom that a big shark is caught  iu Northern watena, but in the tropical seas a twelve-footer, either  whito  or hammerhead, is looked upon    with  contempt. Ono day, as  tho ship While  Wings was bepatmod about fifty miles  off   tho coast  of   Madagascar,   a hammerhead shark of such  size  appeared  alongside  that he was  at first  taken  for a whale.   He remained with us for  over an hour, lying like a log uu the  water, aud it wua  easy  to ge.L hia dimensions,  or at leabi  his  length.   He  was exactly Ihirly-ihree feet long and  about the size oi a Hour-barrel.    If a  tow-line could have been made fast to  that  fiah  he  had   the   horse-power   to  enable  him   to drag   us   along.   While  ��������� the  white shark is  swifter  and more  supple,   the  hammerhead has  more of  what might  be called  pounding  power.   As aa illustration of what he can  do out  of, the  water,  I will  cite   the  case of aa Australian coasting schooner called the Wanderer.   I wap in the  whaling ship Paul Janes and we were  anchored off oho of the Kangaroo islands on the east coast,  to wood and  water.     The    Wanderer,    which    waa  northward bound, came to anchor quite  near  us  to make  good some  damage  received aloft in a squall.  The  water  was alive with hungry hammerheads,  and   the   captain   of   the, coaster,   put  over   a hook.   A   shark  eighteen    feet,  long soon  took.it  and  after  half   an  hour's hard work was hauled over,the  rail.   The fish seemed to be played out  sua thoy hauled Uim in, but no sooner  did he feel tho  deck under him  than  he   began    business.   V The    blows   he  Btruck with his  tail could have  been  heard a   mile    away,  and    when    he  sprang into the air and fell back there  was  a crash which  told  of splintered  planks.   In  ten minutes  that  fish  almost  made a wreck of  the  schooner.  He smashed bulwarks, shivered planks,  and broke stanchions as  if they were  sticks  and chips,    and    harness-cask,  water-butt, and the cook's gaily went  overboard as if sent by  A POWDER EXPLOSION.  The carpenter, managed to sever the  tail with a broadaxe at last, and no  more shark hooks were dropped over  the aide. Had that shark been free  In the hold of the schooner I believe  be would have started a dozen butt-  eade and sunk her at her anchor.  " In hia native element a big shark  has two sorts o������ power���������the go-ahead  and the reverse. Off tho Java coast,  on one of my whaling voyages, wo  killed a whale fixty-two feet long. In  bulk he seemod to \m an island, and  his weight was tons added to tons.  In a perfectly calm sea three boats  made fast to tow the whale down to  the ship. We had been straining bur  backs for five minutes and hadn't got  the great bulk moving yet, when a  hammerhead shark about twenty feet  long dashed in and set his jaws into  the body just forward of the tail. As  he got a firm hold, he began pulling  back and shaking his head, as you  have seen a dog pull at a root when  digging. Ak the flesh, would not tear  away, that shark kept reversing his  engines until he had turned tha big  body twice around in a circle, and added to the weight of the body was the  drag' of our three boats". To get rid  ol him' we had to almost cut him into  Strips with our harpoons. As to the  go-ahead powers of a shark, perhaps  there has never been a test which gave  Island, off the coast of Java, the natives caught a big hammerhead who  !had pur-sued a bather too far and had  (been stranded. A rope was made fast  t>ehin*a, his head and the free end 'fast-  ���������n������4 to a raft which  they construct  ed out of driftwood. According to their  statements the raft was about twenty feet square, and they piled at least  a ton of stones on it. It was a bulky,  unwieldly thing, and yet when they  got shark and raft clear of the shore,  the harnessed caplivo started off, at  steamboat speed and seemed to make  littlo of the drag in hia wake, lie was  passed by a catamaran, when fifteen  mik'S at soa, and was still keeping up  his stroke.  " I   have  known  a whito  shark    to  follow the ship twenty-four hours, but  never  longer.    By  that time his hunger  drives him to go cruising around  after food.    While tho Paul Jones was  working  along   the  Java   coast,   a big  hammorhoad  fell iu with  us,  ono day  and stuck  by  us   for   eight  days  and  a  half  without changing   his  position  threo  feel.   During that time we sailed (J30 miles.   None of us could figure  out how the shark got anything to eat  in all that  time,  ;uid,  us a matter of  fact,  I don't believe he  got a morsol.  Tho   idea   that  a shark   follows  a ship  for tho food thrown overboard is a false  one.    I havo seen tho cook throw slops  over   wheu  sharks  wore  following   or  skulking  under  the counter  and  THEY WOULD NOT MOVE.  A hammerhead estimated to bo thirty  foet   long  followed  tho  English    ship  Rod  Lion 2,180 miles   on  a voyage   to  Australia.   Food was  thrown  to    him  twenty different times, but ho would  not touch it.   The whito shark of tho  tropical seas displays more  fierceness  than ihose of the  Atlantio,  but ho  is  a sheep compared to the hammerhead.  In   the  year  1871   the   brig  Southern  Cross,   from  Calcutta  to  London,   was  wrecked, on Nelaon Island, at tho northern end of the Indian Ocean. Sho had  three passengers and a crew of fourteen   meu.   They  put    off    from   the  wreck  on a raft,  but   the  wind blow  them, out to sea instead of upon   tho  beach.    Tho   raft   was  surrounded   by  hammerhead sharks, and by sundown,  when it was sighted, by a north-bound  craft, only one of  the .seventeen castaways was left. ' The sharks could not  upset  the raft,  but   they  leaped upon  it sometimes two or threo at onco, 'and  knocked ' the  people  overboard.  ' In the yoar" 1882, while we were  landing some cattle from a coaster in  Portland Bay, Australia, lhe sling  broke and a large Devon bull fell into  the water. This was about half a mile  from the beach and in water fifteen  feot deep. The bull started for shore,  but a hammerhead shark seized him by  tho right hip almost at once. The shark  was only about fourteen feet long, and  tho bull was strong enough to have  pulled a tree up by the roots, and yet  tho shark began towing him out to  sea. Boats were lowered and wo went  for the fish. We boat him with boat-  hooks, stabbed him with knives and  fired six bullets into him from a revolver, but he wouldn't let go. Then  we fastened a towrope to the horns of  the bull and towed him to the beach  and the shark camo with him and was  killed with an axe on Lho sands. Tho  flesh was not badly torn, but at Lhe  end of a couplo of days the bull was  dead.  " For a good many years the Zoological Gardens at Bombay were seeking  for a specimen hammer-head. The price  offered was liberal enough, and scores  of them were caught with hooks, but  none lived beyond a few hours. It was  finally discovered that - tho laceration  of tho throat by the hook bled them  to death. Then a native of one of tho  Caroline Islands put the officials up  to a dodge, and a craft was fitted out  and Bent down.'.' the coast to Little  George Island. When she had come to  anchor in a littlo bay mon were sent  ashore to cut and bring off ton long  slim poles. These were fastened loosely together after being spread four  feot apart." This gave them a raft  forty feet wido 'by, fifteen feet long.  Then ropes from ten to fifty feet long,  about twenty lengths in all, were fastened to the raft and- weighted just  sufficiently to sink, them below.it. The  centre rope had. four feet of chain at  ita lower end, and to this chain was  wired  ,    A  HUNK   OF  BEEF. .  One morning they towed the light raft  two miles off shore on a smooth sea  and pulled away to watch proceedings.  It was even chances that a white shark  or ground shark or a small hammerhead might take the bait, but they  had to risk that. Luck was with tho  hunters: They had been waiting and  watching for two hours when there  was a sudden commotion. A tiger twenty-three, feet long had taken the bait.  Down it went at a gulp and ho started off. As soon as he felt the strain of  the raft he began to fight. A white  shark would have rushed this way and  that and sought to tear out lhe hook.  This fellow was not caught by a hook,  but he would not throw out tho bait.  He sought to sever the chain, and when  it defied him he rushed upward at the  raft and rolled over" and ovor as if turned with a crunk. They had counted on  hi.s behaviour to'capture him. In five,  minutes he was wound tip in half a  dozen of the trailing ropes and had  tho ��������� limber poleii bent in all sorts of  shapes, and they made fast and towed him off to Lhe brig. No fish could  have made a fiercer fight; Ii took  four hours, hampered as ho was, to  get him into his. tank, and his st renglh  and fierceness were matters of amazement. The fish was landed at Bombay  and transferred to a basin without: injury, but he only lived three months.  A second and a third were captured  Ln the "wxae manner, but both died after a brief captivity. In the same  gardens was a white shark who had  spent ten years in his tank and had  grown  fat  arid lazy.  "In Atlantic waters the man looking for sport may cast his shark hooks  overboard without fear of disaster, no  matter what sort pi shark take3 hold,  but in the tropical seas there is no  feeling of security.   If a big. hammer-  tho tragedy at Batavia, happening  only four years ago, was convincing  proof that" he is a dangerous foe. A  boat with five men in it hooked a big  hammerhead, and after running out  100 feot of lino tho fish turned and  rushed. As he neared the boat he leaped clear of tho water and landed among the men. In less than one minute  he had beaten out the bottom planks  of the boat with his tail, and of the  four men who met death two, at least,  had broken legs or arms before the  shark rolled out of tho wreck and went  his way."  CATCHING COBRAS.  In  .lIcnnH   Used  lty   (lie   SiialtcTIiiirmcrs  t'np'Hrlnff These Dangerous Itrpttte.s.  Tho cobra is so passionately fond of  inuisic that it can at any time bo' enticed from its hiding-place By the  notes of a violin or a bagpipe. It seldom hoars anything but tho bagpipe,  but if thoro be one instrument which  it lovea more than any other it is the  violin. *    '  If a cobra takes up its abode in tho  neighborhood of a dwelling, it is customary- to send for a' pair, of professional snake-charmers. They at once  proceed to work upon tho snake's love  of music. -One of thom strikes up a  tune near Lhe place where the cobra  is supposed to be.  If it ia thoro it is sure to bo attracted by the music, and soon to tnako its  appearance. It emerges slowly from  its hiding-place, and Lakes a position  ita front of the player. It is his business to keep its uttention ��������� engaged  while hia companion creeps up behind  it with a handful of fine dust.  Tho. casting of the dust upon tho  cobra startles it, and for one moment  it falUs its full length' on the ground.  It is only for a moment, but the time  ia long enough to answor the purpose  of tho assistant. With a lightning-  like movement ho seizes the cobra by  the neck ju'sL below the head. Tho  snake turns in fury, and winds its body  round the arm of its captor ; but its  rago availa it nothing. It cannot turn  its head to b' o.  If it is desirable to extract the fangs  at' onco, the captor presses his thumb  on the throat of tho cobra, thus compelling it to open its mouth, and tho  fangs aro drawn with a pair of pincers.  If, however, tho operator desires to  keep the snake inlact for the present,  the musician comes to his comrade's  assistance, forcibly unwinds the ceils,  and place's the body of the cobra, iu a  basket. Only tho head is left oui, this  being still held by the other, man. The  lid is1 pressed down to prevent Lhe cobra from wriggling out. Then, suddenly,  the captor thrusts the head in, and  bangs down the lid.  Sometimes music is used to draw  from Lhe snake its poison, to be used  for medicinal or experimental purposes.  When this is to be done, the musician's assistant, arms himself with a  largo plate covered with a thick plantain leaf. Whilo tho snake is engaged with the music he sits down right  in front of it. It ia too much engrossed to notice him until tho music suddenly stops. Then the cobrar" recalled  to existing surroundings, launches  forth at  the man  who  is  nearest.  Quick as ita thrust, however, is tho  movement of th������ man. He interposes  the plate aud receives the bite on il.  The potBO.n goes through tho puncture  in the leaf, and is deposited on the  plate. It is a thick, albuminous fluid,  like the white.. of an egg. One drop  of it, communicated to the blood, is  enough to cause death to any warmblooded animal.  TAMING THE LION.  hia actual horse-power.

Once upon a time sticks of lead were  used for making marks oa paper and  wood, and the name has survived,  though riowudays all the pencils are  filled with graphite, or plumbago,  which is simply a form of pure char-  ecu L. -This mineral is found in only  a few places in the world���������in Cumberland, England; aliong the Lauren-  tian ranges in the Province of Quebec,  Ttcon'eroga, in Vermont.  The graphite, is taken, in the lump  from the mines aud carried to the  reducing mill, whiire it, is ground or  pulverized in stamp mills under water. The fine particles .ot graphite  tlcjtxt awtiy with the .water through a  number of tanks, collecting at the. bottom of these reservoirs, it is packed  in barrels iu the form of d'ust and  sent to Lhe factory, where tens of  thousands of lead pencils are turned  out every day. .The pulverized graphite is so lino that it reaLly is a  dust, dingy in color and smooth and  oiLy to the touch. It is divided into various grades of fineness by dividing it on water from One tank lo another. .  In another series of tanks the German pipeclay, which " is mixed with  graphite ,to secure the different grades  ot pencils from very soft to extra hard,  is graded in the same way by  floating.        The      finest    '   clay is  mixed -with the 'finest' graphite,  being ground together between stones,  nnd the hardness of the pencil is-secured by increasing the proportion of  clay in the mixture.  Sir.   John   Cooper  ������;iio������   Ills   Kxn'ci-lenri-s  Willi Hie Kin**; or Itensls.  John Cooper, who from being the  youngest lion-tamer in the world���������he  was a full-blown trainer at the age of  twelve���������has become ono of tho greatest, is no believer in harsh measures.  " Firmness and kindness will make  any animal fond of you," he said recently. " I have had lions so fond of  mo that if I petted one, others would  be jealous, ln a group of seven or  eight lions, an ill-timed caress of one  would wound the feelings of tho others, and if persisted in, would lead to  a row."  In some of hia performances, Mr.  Cooper had a lion on either side of  him with feet on his shoulders. Pointing to a picture of himself in such a  position, ho'said:  " You see this lion on my left shoulder? That ia Botsy. She was blind.  Whenever she got out of position in  the group, sho had a perfect horror  of touching me. Sho was afraid' that  she might hurt me. If she was in her  right place, she know exactly where I  was, and what sho could So without  Btriking me with' her claws or knocking me down. I have often been  touched at hor caro, which was quite as  great as any of us are capable of exercising. Poor-, blind Betsy I"  Speaking of tho memory of animals,  Mr. Cooper said, " I doubt whether thoy  forget anything. Somo years ago there  was a sale of elephants aL NorLh Woolwich .Gardens, ln the catalogue was  a group of elophants Lhat I used Lo  ' perform,' but had not seen for twelve  years. As they wero led into' the ring,  I said to.one of them, 'Hallo, Pal' an  expression that used to 'bo part of the  performance.  " Tho elephant was electrified, and  began to trumpet in an extraordinary manner. The others joined in and  got round me, encircling me with their  trunks, as if Lo embrace mo. It was  with difficulty I got away from thom,  and when I did, I fairly broke down  and cried. The people at the sale asked me Lo repeaL the performance, but  I couldn't���������1 was too much upset."  Although hia animals had such good  memories, there was one time when  Mr. Cooper's own memory failed. He  had been very ill, and it was his firsL  appearance aflerward among his lions.  When he got inLo the cage ho found  his mind a blank. He did not even  know ono lion from another. Quite  helpless, ho looked at the lions, and  they at him. Thoy were waiting for  the words and gestures that were associated with the different performances.  He continued to gaze at them, but  could make nothing of it, and was  turning away to give up when one of  them sprang upon him on one sido,  then another on the other side, and  the. rest ranged thom'solves about him.  They were going through the final  Boeno in the performance. Perhaps in  turning away he had unconsciously  made some gesture that they remembered. Anyway, tho lions had awaken-  od his memory, for although he did  no more performing that day, the whole  thing came back to him.

' 'One swallow may not make a summer, very likely not, but one fly, at  this season, can make a heap of trouble. This fly," said Mr. Gozzleby, " is  the one that comes into your room  to greot you in the early morning,  soon after sun-up, but long before you  want to get up. He is not satisfied  with buzzing up to you and saying  ' howdy' once, but with a great excess  of politeness or good nature or friendly feeling., or just downright stupidity,  for it oerLainly can't be mere maliciousness���������the fly doesn't know enough for  that���������comes aL you again and again.

" You brush him away drowsily at  first, but there's nothing drowsy aboul  the fly ; he is u|p for tho day, and he  comes around at you again at full speod  and lights on you suddenly. Your  drowsiness is gone now, and tho cold  fact is that you try to smash the de-  bonnair fly that got up so early. But  say, you may have a good deal more  brute, strength than tho fly, but you  aro not in it at all with him for  sprightliness and when you bring your  hand down whore he was he is as  likely us not calmly, walking. head  down on the ceiling.  ."But,he does nut neglecc you; ho  is back again presently, when you have  got comfortably and hopefully settled  down, zip! in a skimming flight so  close to your ear that ybu fancy you  can feel the wind from his wings, and  then he swings round iu a graceful  loop and lands on your nose. And that's  the way he goes, free from care, wideawake himself, never dreaming that  anybody else wants to sleep, just a  tearing and r'aring and prancing  around, and lighting on you every now  and then at irregular but not . infrequent intervals, and keeping everyr  thing stirred up, so that sleep is quite  out of the question. And at last you  give it up and get up an, hour or two  ahead of your usual time.

UtrcetN of t>oii<Ian, g-jiglnnil, Proved by n  Itccciit Sale to be Wo'rlli Tlielr Wilalit  In Koi.l. .������  - One of the surest and safest ways of  becoming rich beyond the dreams of  avarice would be to possess a few acres  of land in the heart of the city of- Lon-  * don, or, in fact a singla acre , would  make one wealthier than the most  lucky miner that ever starved in Johannesburg. . This was proved conclusively the other day, when the freehold of  No. 54 Cheapside wan sold for ������28,500,  which is equal to ������00 per foot, or JC2,-  613,000 an acrel ' j  Th;; highest price ever asked for land'  in London was at the rate of thirteen  million pounds sterling per acre. The  goltk-n spot was in Bermondsey, where  a few years ago a small piece- of property was offered to tho Southeastern  iRa'ihvay Company for X1.25O.0U0. No  ���������wonder the railway company declined  ' to' buy.  Coming back to the city again, we  find that the ground about Lombard  Btreet is worth not less than ������2,000,-  000 an acre, while something like ������40 a  ���������square foot was paid for ovi*ry pioce of  the land between King 'William stat ue  and Trinity square, E.C.  ; In Cannon sta-eoc, in 1880, 000 square  feet of land was sold for building sites  for ������4,500, which amounts to ������ 10s a  square foot, or nearly ������330,000 an aero.  In the same year building, sites in  Grace church street realized ������18 18s a  square foot, or ������820,000 an acre. In  lt8J those prices increased by leaps and  bounds in the same streets. 1.285 square  feet of ground being sold) for ������37,000,  which is ������28 lGs per square foot, for  not. far short of ������1,260,000 an acre.  Going westward, land becomes somewhat cheaper, but still sufficiently  high to make it no exaggeration to say  that, metaphorically speaking Londoners  WALK ON GOLD.  For instance, one could, btuy an acre in  Pall Mall for half million sterling, but  if ground was required, in St. James' |  square or St. James' Btreet, something  like threequartors of a million would  be required for a like quantity. j  Three years ago the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland was letting hia land on  the Cadogan estate in Chelsea at ������50,-  000 an acre on building leases, with an  annual ground rent on half a crown a  foot. Three acres.of his property near  Sloan-o street was sold for ninoty-nino  yeari for ������175,000. j  The Marquis of Salisbury owns five  aoros of land at Charing Cross, which,  250 years back, was leased for grazing  purposes to his ancestors at the rate of  ten shillings an acre for 500 years.  Ths'se few acres are now worth about'a  sovereign per foot.  The value.of property in London has  tivblcd   since  1856,    and    to-day    tho  houses within its borders are calculated to be worth some two hundred and [  fifty million pounds sterling, and the '  land on which they are built is valued '  at not less than   six    hundred million  pounds.  Upon the latter sum the lanlords receive about twenty-five million pounds  annually in rent; and, sooner or later,  , under the leasehold system, house pro^  perty of enormous value will come into  I their lands.  The ��������� owners of London include all  jsorts and conditions of men and wo-  jmen, from dukes to shareholders ip  Ibuilding societies and owners of single  tenements. These small owners number about 200,000. But the great bulk  of the rental of the metropolis belongs  to comparatively few people.  The! ground landlords include the  Duke of Westminster, to whom a large  portion of the jBelgravia, Pirnneo add  Bxosvenor     square     district   belongs.  Th?n the Duke of Bedford owns chiefly  thj Covent Garden district and Blooms-  biiry; Lord Portman and tho Duke of  Portland West aud East Marylobone  districts respectively; Lord Cadogan. ii  large part of Chelsea; whiia the Marquis of Northampton reignV ii* Clerk-  enwell, the Duke of Norfolk in ,lho  south of the Strand, the< Marquis of  Camden in Camden Town, .Lord Southampton in Tottenham Court roadi and  Kentish Town, and Captain Penton in  the district of Pentonville.   ��������� .
