IBP OUR RESOURCES.  let iOs Have Something Instead of  Futile Strife.  A most   pertinent question   to  ask  'now is, AVhat is the provincial government doing to develop the resources of  the country and to settle it with a desirable class of people'!   It is admitted  ���������oil every hand that  the province has  exceptional possibilities���������an immense  area,   a specially fine climate, untold  mineral wealth   in   diversified forms,  large   nreas ��������� of  ranching land,   huge  belts of (he most   fertile  agricultural  and  fruit growing land   in the  world,  with all other natural conditions favorable, immense blacks of forest producing the best building timber in the  world,   and   our   streams   and   rivers  abounding in  the finest fish,  ever produced in inland waters���������everything in  fact guaranteed by nature to make tho  province the homo.of many times the  present population   of Canada, in the  mercantile, industrial, agricultural and  financial classcs,nnd the govornmont is  doing little or nothing to secure tho  population for which  tho country has  so  many   and such   varied  opportunities.  In our cabinets wo have but too often  men of but simple mediocrity, wliose  chief aim is'to draw their salaries and  to hold their parties in power, and a  House of representatives, the highest  aim of whom as manipulating a sectional vote to secure their return when  ever elections may recur. From tho  ' standpoints of those classes, their acts  may be highly commendable ; but is it  all going to develop tho country, by  giving it the institutions essential for  its growth,advertising it abroad '! Some  say the s-ilnrics paid to our cabinet  ministersare insufficient to get the beat  men in ollice giving their whole time  to it. If this is so, by all means double  them if necessary.  Tha fact of J.ho matter is the province has outgrown a dependent colonial Binge, and loudly calls for local self  government.    Our local matters can no  more  be   handled now from Victoria  Jlmn" Canada   can bo  governed   from  Downing street.    Eycry   mile of  the  unorganized country calls for money to  build wagon roads, trails, bridges,  etc.  The country wants  more schools  with  better   moans   for   sustenance.     Our  farming districts are calling for immigrants "with moans for settlement  to  supply ihe mining districts with farm  products.     Our "minerals, other  than  the precious metals, are offering- openings for large factories, and uur forests  are ready to supply all  with building  materials.     To   extend   this .development  for which   the country  is  now  ripe calls for the aid of capabic_mon in  our legislatures, and not those who will  pettifog    in    vote-stealing legislation  side agencies; owners cannot demand  nnd get,whatever prices they desire,  in the next place niiiiiy of the properties have never yot paid for the money  expended on them, and that some, of  them will never do it goes without saying. .Next, at the instance of the worst  element in the Coeur d'Alene, a number of onr miners are worked on till  they secretely get pledges from our  representatives, who on all election  plutlorms openly declared thero had  been loo much tinkering'with the cicc  tion laws, to introduce the most objectionable law ever passed in the  country.  Supposing now the boot was changed  and that a Jaw was passed limiting the  working hours of clerks,   bar tenders,  etc , to eight, and that, these clerks and  bartenders   demanded   of   employers,  many  of   whose   businesses were not  then paying,   the same wages for the  eight hours they had been to that time  getting for past services ;   that  these  bartenders and clerics   fo/nicd a  union  that took in all   who had  served  any  timo'at either business,  and that that  theunion demanded for the most inefficient of its members the wages for eight  hours  formerly paid to   the best men  foe  the former hours of labor,  wo ask  the storekeepers, hotel men, etc., in all  fairness,   how   they   would    like   it?  When again wc add  to this condition  of things "the fact  that tlicso bartenders and clerks so extended thoir unions  as to prevent help from coming in under any conditions, how would it improve the tempers of the business men  and  saloon keepers,  especially   when  the politicians   were gloating   over it  hoping   to make enough  votes'out  of  the trouble to again return themselves  to oflice.    [fin this situation the agony  was intensified by cries of "Open your  stores and saloons and run them.    We  don't care whether you  make money  or lose, you have got to run them that  wc  may make money,"  the  picture  would be properly presented.  1 Sill I  mi  Ihih.  Keep Out tlie Element That Makes tlie  Peace and Prosperity.of a Country, Its Wanton Sport.  Labor Trouble Notes.  Why should there, Will any one tell  us, be ten hours' work for the surface  miner and but eight for the underground man, when all good miners say  they would rather do underground  than overground work ?  The Nelson Tribune is now turning  its guns on the Canadian and English  capitalists who arc investing in American mines. K it would shoot the B.  C. legislature that passed the laws that  are driving those people to do that, it  would be more sensible and effective  work.  A mine owner, in the Nelson Tribune, wants to know why it is that a  syndicate holding properties in two  seofions of the silver-load district have  to pay two rates to men. In one district they can hire at S3 00 and in another they have lo pay $3.50, if they  work their properties.  Mr. E. Rammolmeyer, who was manager of the Emily E'-lith mine at Silverton for some time, has closed down  the property and left tho place.   Since  If the labor agitations,  that are now  stirring the mining districts of British  Columbia,   originated    with    resident  miners of the province, who have boen  here for years and intend to make the  province   their home, they   would be  .entitled  to every consideration of our  parliament and the  capitalists of the  country.   In so far as residents arc involved, they are eutitled'to this consideration; but it is patent to those who  have looked into lhe matter   that  the  trouble sprang from some of the Coeu r  d'Alene agitators, that instigated the  reign  of terror   across   the lines,  and  rendered the operations of capital on a  paying basis out of the question.   It  appears to us that it becomes the duty  of those interested  to bring evidences  of this Cully before Commissioner Clute  when ho visits the Slocan'.   In so far  as The Itcview is concerned,  we have  never opposed an  eight-hour law   for  miners,   in   short,   wc would  support  one tomorrow for all who have (.6 earn  their living by days' wages, as we want  to see alPelasses used alike.

Wo want men  who will rise  fully above all this, grasp tho needs of  the province with capable  minds and  willing hands,   and give  the   country  the growth .nature designed it to.have.  First.We want municipal.institutions  ���������'., over   all. the'.. unorganized   territory  vested  with power to make loans,  to  make   public   improvements, and on-,  ddwed ..with power, to collect personal,  really and income taxes,  and to spend  them locally in   the   public interest.  We again want capable, men in all the  countries   of  Europe   advertising , by  word, and practical evidences our great  resources   that .'wealth, . sufficient   to  meet the/requirements, may be drawn  tliis way, and conciliatory legislation  creating in capital and labor a bond of  union.   It appears to us. that it is the  duty of tho press and the capable men  of the country to take hold of all these  matters so that our next and  future  elections  will be run on issues  calculated to bring the country to the front  at a bound, instead of creating irritating issues between parties and sections  that can only result in.serious detriment to all concerned.

'  The Other Foot.  Frequently you will hear throughout  the Slocan merchants and hotelkeepers  blaming, if not censuring, the mine  owners ior not opening the mines. It  would be well to consider that even  mine owners are human, and how^he  game .would woric if the boot was  placed on the other foot. In the first  place, the-value jpf ores is fixed by out-  A TERRIBLE DISEASE.  "I have ��������� been troubled with sal?  rheum for 6 years and could got nothing, to'cure me until I took Burdock  Blood Bitters. It only required live  bottles to make a complete cure." Mrs.  Jas. Delzill, High Bluli; Man.       -  WHAT Dir A. E. SALTER. SAYS.  .Buffalo, jN. Y.���������Gents :���������From my  personal knowledge, gained in observing the effect of your Shiloh's Cure in  cases of advanced consumption, I am  prepared to say it is the most reliable  remedy that has ever been brought to  my . attentention. It has certainly,  saved many Irom consumption. Sold  at McQueen's Drug Store.  Nelson Tribune puts it. the fish element "controls the electoral voto of the  camp," but on the broad basis of justice to labor'irrespective of its voting  power altogether. But such a law  should not be tyrannical���������it should  not reduce the working classes to the  condition of slaves, limiting their earning capacity, and dep>ivi:ig them of  that, birthright of all British subjects���������  the right to do as they like with their  labor.  The Reyiew too has always favored  the payment of $3.50 to good miners in  the Slocan, though it is not the duty of  newspapers to fix. wages between'employer and employee in any capacity,  but it has opposed, for humanitarian  reasons,  actions   and  tactics  thai try-  either   to force inferior men  on  employers   at that figure or deprive thorn  of the means of earning a living at the  calling of their choice altogether.   '1 he  miners' union,   for instance, takes all  shades and conditions of men, who profess to be miners, into its ranks, and  demands   for   those,   that   it  is   well  known are unable  to earn more  than  $3.00, the wages   they should for the  best  men in the  camp.   There is no  questioning th������ unfairness of this, and  it is because of its unfairness that The  Review disapproves  of it.   There are |  plenty of employers who  would  hire  those inferior men   at what  they are  worth;   but   the  stipulations   of   the  union are that if owners cannot be coerced  into   paying them  wages, it is  known all around  they are  incapable  of earning, they musl  either  take up  work uncongenial to them or leave the  country.   This is  a line of tactics disallowed by any other union of whose  working we have any knowledge, and  should be discarded by the miners..  If worthy resident miners operated  on the lines approved of above, and  ended their agitations by making these  demands and others on similar-'and  harmonious lines, they would have a  strong fortification for their defence.  But time willprovo that thoy will not  end with this and their present fullde-  ninnds. For the past couple of years  the agitators, who set the hall rolling  among the otherwise peaceably disposed miners of this country,- have  been spreading anarchy and terror  throughout . many districts : of the  States, the Coeur d'Alene district being  lho. central scene of their operations,  until now capital is literally handicapped making livings for 'lien mining  with their mouths only.  It becomes the duty of the owners,  capitalists and all others of this country to sec that liberal concessions aro  made to honest labor in every legitimate form, but to be firmly bonded  together to nip in thebud the-movements'and-encroachments of the anarchists, that are the cause of such  troubles, wrongs and crimes across the I  lines.

which was what. Miss Collier meant

that tried to fall softly upon the stairs.

By and bye her father opened her
door soflly and tiptoed into the room.

Miss Meredith's approach could not

The tinkling of a silver bell came to
her, sounding weirdly through the
night, and out of that night emerged
another figure. It ran up the steps
.and the front door opened and closed.
She drew her cape about her shoulders
and groped her way out of her room,
through the corridor, down lho stairs.
A candle was burning in tho hall. She
went on  into  the dining-room.

.There was a Toaring , fire in tho
grate, and she tl^re.w back the cape
from her shoulders. Hor neck and arms
shone white, nod the lights glittered
on hor hair. From tho crown of her
head, with its faded flower, to the lorn
ruffle of her skirt she was in sad disarray. But Stanley thought her very
beautiful, and memory came suddenly
back to time.
They tallied gayly, for all that they
were quite unhappv. Then Moriarty
reported that i he. sergeant-major was
at the door and would like to see
tho ranlain. The captain went out and
his wife  followed   him.
" Mauricia will take care of you,",
she said to Stanley. She had many
things  to  attend   to.
And  then   ;i silence   thai  would  not

Bear-Admiral Campion, and is dat-
od August 1, 1889, Mr. Alton says:
" You will, however, no doubt, be
greatly surprised to learn lho loss of
the Andree expedition up North. In
tho early part of this spring! an Esquimaux named Old Donald's Son, and
some more Esquimaux were trading
in the shop. After they had finished they all went out but Old Donald's
Son, who wanted to know if tho balloon had started, as two while men
had been killed up North last summer, and it was supposed - they had
come from the balloon.
" I  did  not  pay  much  heod  to   the

Later on, however, two more Esquimaux, Stockby, and his brother, came
in, and they brought news which
leaves very little doubt that the expedition has come to grief up North.
" SLockby's brother, while hunling
musk oxen last summer, came across
a party of four white men shooting
deer. A party of Esquimaux who
wero approaching at the lime did not
see tho deer, and thought that the
white men were- shooting at -.' them.
They thereupon drew their bows and
���arrows'.'and. shot two of the whites,-
killing them, on 'the spot. ��� Tha other
two men ran away, pursued by the
Esquimaux, and it is hot known whether thoy escaped of not.
���'.' Stockby's brother saw the two poor
fellows lying dead with arrows
through them. ��� Ono was a iniddle-aged
man, short, broad and stout; the other
was a young man. The older had on
a knickerbocker . suit, with striped
stockings ; tho "younger had on a cloth

Wanted Stockby's brother to go back
with thein, as there was a big round
thing up North full of tobacco, clothes',
ammunition, etc., but ho did not go.

One of  the  most .successful  sorties
made   during   the   siege   of   Pretoria
was the attack of the Zwarl kopje, a
rooky   knoll   rising   lo   about   thirty
feol,  formed  of   large    boulders   with
brushwood growing    between,    about
twelve mikfj from Pretoria. Here the

Gildea,   at  the   head  of  one   hundred
and forty mounted men and two hundred and eighty infantry with one gun
set ouIl to destroy on tho morning ol
January  Gtilh,   1881.    The'kopje    was
btormed by ihe Fusiliers, and ono. who
wafcf there .thus describes what he saw
in the vapiured stronghold; "Thefirst
thing that attracted my attenion was
a   young    Boer,    evidently    mortally
wounded and struggling  in the agony
of his death  throes.   1 lifted his head
and  poured  a little  brandy  down  his
throat; but he was beyond all human
aid, and in ji few. minutes his pain was
over. Ho had his cartridges in a little
leathern  military  pouch,   all    dabbed
with his'-'life's blood, and I loosened it
from his1 belt to find that it had belonged1 to  one  of   the  9th   Regiment,
and had in all probability been taken
ait the Hondo River ; so truly, in this
individual case, Bronkhorst Spruit had
boen   avenged.   Another   fine    young
Boer, broad-chested and-powerful, was   .
lying   over   a   piece of  bouldor-qtone ���
just as he had fallen, a smile, on his
face   an   a bullet   in   his   brain."
When Major    Robarts was in command at Fori Weber during the- early
part of the Boer campaign, hej paraded
liis forces, chiefly volunteers, the first
Sunday   they   were   in    the   fort,  for
church service. Having only a Church     '
of England chaplain, the major deaired
all the Roman Catholics to fall out, as
he had .no'-priest .to attend to their ro-
liigious wants.   On lhe next Sunday a
number of ingenious volunteers, in (he
hope   of   being   also   ordered   to   " fall

handed   in   their-   names   as   infidels.

And so, although recent years have worked a  colossal reform in. the fighting clothes  of the British soldier, uniforms of| tho  old picturesque typo are still preserved  for purposes of duly and pageantry at  home.  DISREGARDS DISCOMFORT.  (Writing somo ten years ago. Lord  Wolseloy, advocating a differentiation between the uniforms of peace  and war, said:���������"We must1 make tho  soldiers' ololhing acceptable to the  mon who havo to wear it,i and, strange  to say they like very tightly fitting  coats and trousers, to swagger about  in with Iheir sweethearts." And then  lie talks "of their joy inl the shelterless.i  "ridioulous forage caps stuck on the  sido of thoir heads."   ( ,  Many a recruit has been gained for  tho British forces by their gay clothing,.and although the more elaborate  plumage    involves      a    corresponding  ' amount of preening, the smartness of  the men's appearance is proverbal.  Time was and not so very long! ago, as  the many know who have seen Lady  Butler's wondrous war pictures, when  British soldiers fought under the  handicap of tight tunics and various  impedimenta, such as no modern commander would for a moment tolerate.  Take for instance her famous painting  of "The Twenty-eighth at QuatreBras"  and compare tho garb of the, Glouces-i  tors given there in tho Crimea with the  khr.ki iu which thoy wero capturedi recently by tho Boers in the regiment's  next  turn  of  active  service.  Even among tho gay homo uniforms  those of tho drum, majors are proverbi-  ' ally the most gorgeous. With one of  the finest military bands in the world  at his heels, the drum major of the  Coldstreaim Guards is especially resplendent. His regiment's record includes Egypt, Ouderiarde, Malpla-  quet, Deltingen, Lincelles, - Talayera,  Barrosa, the Peninsula, - Waterloo,  Alma, Inkerman, Sevastopol, Egypt,  ��������� '82; Tel-el-Kebir and Suakim, '85, as  the names in heavy gold, letters fin his  baldric show. His tunic- and trousers  are of scarlet, the facings blue, and  his braid of gold. Tho red* plume  worn in their gigantic bear skins is  tho principal mark of distinction between those uniforms and those of the  Scots Guards, who have no plume.  Next to a drum major there is hardly a more imposing sight of tho kind  than that which a piper of tho Scots  Guards presents. "Silver buckles are  on his shoes," like pretty "Johnny  Shafto," and there are silver "fixings"  to his sporan, baldric, plaid, dirk, sword  and his bonnet, wilh its oagle feather.  The flaglike drapery on, bis pipes is of  Bcarlet silk, with gold insignia. The  ribbons on tlie pipes and tho ,kilt are  are all of the tartan of 'tho regiment,  while the tunic is of scarlet.-  ONE OF LONDON'S. SIGHTS. ���������'.'���������  Evory visitor in London has the Royal Horse Guards pointed out to him as  ono of the regular sights of the British  metropolis. Fine men of their inches  are they all, picked for their, physique,  and highly picturesque they look with  their plumed helmets, cuirasses and  high boots. Their popular name is "Tho  Blues," their uniform, being blue, wilh  scarlet facings and red plumes. Thoy  wear immense pipeclayed gauntlets  and highly polished black boots, wilh  .flare tops; their breeches also are  whito. Their helmets and .cuirasses  . shine like burnished silver. But. all this  finery is put aside when they take tho  field, and they fight in khaki as do  all the rest.       ' ��������� ���������  -Quieter, but sLill rich, is the uniform of an officer o������ the Royal Horse  . Artillery, It is of blue, with scarlet  facingsi He wears a busby bag with  a white j.-lumc. H'Js blue saddlecloth is  bound .with'gold braid and heavily embossed with tho royal monogram, tho  insignia of his regiment, and its  motto, which is " Everywhere." So', too,  in his sabretache. The privates wear a  less feathery plume and lack the gold  braid of the officer, so that their appearance is more somber, but still mar-  - tia.l, with the scarlet bags on litheir  hoadgear and the scarlet facings on  their background of dark blue.  Magnificent Indians, officered for  the rnosl part by Englishmen, compose  the Ninth Bengal Lancers. The officers wear white helmets of pith, stiffened by wire.  ��������� .; In " The Armies of To-Day," Lord  Wolseloy says:���������".

That this was the cause was  proved by the fact that by placing ice  in  the box the  aniimals were readily  killed.

At the roar of tho entrance hall of  my home is a small bay-window about  four feet wide and eight feet long,  writes Elizabeth Flint Wade. The win-  do\\r as an addition lo tho house, and  lhe opening into il, is not, as is usually the case, the length of the window. It, is threo and one-half foet in  width, jusl thai of the original window  of which this is an expansion, so tho  bay-window is in reality a tiny room  by itself. I use it in winter for a miniature conservatory, and stock it with  plants which best bear the uncertain  temperature of a house. Last winter  instead of filling it with blossoming  plants, I devoted it almost entirely la  " green things I growing." Foliage  plants, begonias and ferns formed the  staple products, while every available  bit of space suitable for such plants  was used for vines.  1 had some plants which aranot usually cultivated indoors. In the autumn  I went1 to tho woods and brought home  hepaticas, blood-root, bed-straw, wild  geraniums and Jack-in-the-pulpit bulbs.  These I potted and put Ihem in tha  cellar for three or four weeks before  attempting the process of acclimatizing them to a heated house. In a week  or two after they wero brought up and  placed in the window they began to  grow, and at Christmas time I had two  pots of hepaticas in bloom. The blossoms were very largo and of a deeper  lavender tint than when they bloom  out-of-doors. The blood-root did net  lesponci so quickly. It grew very slowly and did not bloom until February.  The bed-straw began to grow almost  at once and crept here and there amL  ong the plants, attaching its sprays to  whatever specimen   took  its fancy.  Perhaps tho prettiest of these  wood plants was the wild geranium, or  Herb Robert. In this plant the leaves  all start from a common center and  form a rounded mass, the delicately cut  foliage being of the most tender and  bewitching green. These plants were  grown in low pots, and served in turn  all througlt the winter as floral center  pieces for the dining, table.' Tho Jack-  in the pulpit proved a fascinating addition to my collection. The "Little  Minister " took -.very kindly to his new  pastorate and in December sent up  great, thrifty leaves and later appeared in full canonicals. It was specially  interesting to watch the habits of  growth of these.wild plants. One so  seldom sees them except in f ullmatur-  ity that it was a new experience to  watch them from the,' beginning of  their growth up to their full perfection. .   ��������� .'���������  ":������������������'���������'. ".-.'.  Of vines I had Asparagus plumosus  and Asparagus, sprengeri, both of  which plants demand the attention of  the amateur. The latter plant . grew  with the most astonishing rapidity,  some of the sprays reaching a length  of over/ three yards., The fine foliage  of-this plant gives it a sort of misty  appearance and when placed on a high  bracket, it looks from a distance liko  a littlo green fountain, sending up jets  of water which falls around it in colored spray. A 'passion vine made a  beautiful screen across the top of- the  entrance of this littlo nook, and hung  from' the center of the ceiling was a  basket from which depended yards and  yards of the common Wandering Jew,  of the most vivid green.  3 lis window is heated from a register eight feet away across the hall, and  the temperature was seldom above 70,  and oftener at 65. When the mercury  out-of-doors dropped  belo\v the zero I  sometimes  put  a small   oil  stove���������the  tiny kind used for heating a basin of  water���������at  the entrance  anf lot it  remain for'an hour or two.   I took care  not to over-water  the plants, but tho  soil was never allowed to  become entirely dry.   Florists often.advise aina-  teuiti to let the earth in the pots got ���������  dry and then give it a thorough soaking.   I  have    tried   this  method    and  havo found that to treat plants in this  way and have them grow successfully,  thoy must bo cultivated in the moist  almosphoro of a green-house.   It   will  never do for tho dry, ovor-heated temperature  of  our  living  houses.      Tim  only   fertilizer  which   I   used  was    a  small quantity ot .Tadoo liquid, perhaps  half a dozen  times during tho winter.  I had one,or two plants each of geraniums, petunias, freesias, Johnsonii lily,  etc., which  blossomed during the season, but it was the luxurious gtrowllj  of the foliage of the plants which did  not bloom that gave me most delight,  and I would  advise  anyone who loves  plants and.who does not haye/success  with   blossoming   plants '-to..tia-   those  which  promise  nothing   but leaves.  DOUBLE-FLOWERED  CHERRIES.  Double-flowered cherries are among  our handsomest flowering shrubs oi  small trees, the weeping forms being  particularly graceful. A new variety _  which received a first-class certificate  from tho Royal Horticultural society  at London exhibition last May is  named James H. Veitch; tho flowers  are unusually large, very double, and  bright pink-in color; the plants bloom  while they are very small, so thai'Ibis  shrub is likely to be grown in pots by  florists. ;  1-'&,���������*���������"������v-  i' .  c-  "V "V  kxm  h >T. -    ..������������������ ^C^f.". .������     "      I J. r.

'   LEGISLATIVE FKEAKS.^   .,;  .It is'iiitiiiiated, by sonie papers, tlnit  '���������-��������� profess.to,know what thoy.-aro1 talking  about, that  it is  the intention 61" ��������� the  ��������� local .legislature to double  the output  /tax'on the mines of the Slocan, as one  means.'..of bringing owners to ti 1110 in  troubles like the present.   For' strong  ' reasons, it niishi be 11s well that this  - was done. .Ever since the 'conniienee-  , merit,: 0' operations there have been  circumstances cropping up that have  held 'the people .continually between  hope and' J'b.'iiv First a, money' panic,  next a slumpiu the price' of'-,metals,  '..and now the: labor .trouble.' Most of  ..the-business residents   as,well as  the  ' owners of lho mining properties have  been hoping from  the  start  that  all  ��������� governing' inflences. would ' eventually  .grow; .into   a   settled   condition ..that  would   guarantee,  something   like   a  ������������������������������������: permanency upoii. which definite business 'calculations'.might'bobased; and  .  it might bejust.as well that  the gov-  : ������������������'. errim'eiit should .give it the   coup de  grace and lot the' long-suffering people  ��������� look for business openings elsewhere  without further delay. ; "Hope deferred  . 311 aketh-tl,ve heart sick,", and it might  ��������� bejust as well for lhe gc-vernment to  ���������'!. at once close up the'niines .ior a couple  ��������� 'of generations, and let the .people go  about their business without   further  thought..,  It may be, as is. intimated,  that the  ; revenues of, tlie. liiines. have not-paid  the cost of opening up the country, to  the present;  but, even if, so, it would  ,   only, be repeating, the! history , of... all  ; other new countries. As soon as steps  are taken' to open up a mining prop-  : erty, and long before it produces any  revenue, it requires a trail or a road  and shipping facilities ; but when they  ' are once procured, the bulk of the cost  tothe -government is over, and revenue  returns then begin to re-imburse. It  is much like, a man coiiimencing operations on a bush farm. At first it is  all expenditure, clearing' for the returns to conic in later years.  ���������From souio governments, however,  the public may expect, anything, and  .the present government' that used to  ./declare, when seeking election, that  preyiously there had been too niuch  tinkering with the mining laws of the  province; is a remarkable instance of  ���������thisv. If, however, it is ways and means  io raise revenue to relieve the provincial treasury of drains, that the government is after, there is another and  much more sensible way of coming at  its object. -If,'the government should  at once incorporate school districts and  empower school beards to raise all incidental expenses by taxation, as they  should, the province would be at once  relieved of one source of vexation,  and more general satisfaction would be  given to the people. There is no reason why the public of British Columbia  should not have the best of school facilities and without a cent of cost to  them in-any way, shape or form.  Again, let tbe government create the  whole unorganized country into district municipalities with power to tax  their own personal and real property  and incomes and thereby make their  public improvements, and, our word  for it,   bettor satisfaction , will be ex-  . ..pressed all around. The whole personal property tax of the entire province is less than $100,000 a year, when  on an equitable assessment, the city of  Vancouver would contribute this alone.  The entire real and personal taxes or  the unincorporated towns and villages  of the country are but a mere fraction  of what they ought to be; and if the  residents under semi-municipal incorporation were given power to tax reasonably, and spend the money raised,  ��������� on local improvements, there would be  much more efficient service, ami less  public grumbling. Why, wu ask,  should mines more than any other institutions in Ihecountry be taxed exceptionally. If mines are shipping  heavily they are employing many  men, whose expenditures, are of,great  service to the entire population of their  surroundings, and why should not then j  tlie surroundings pay some of the taxes  necessary   to keep up the outputs,  as  'well as the mines themselves'/ The  fact of tiie inalter is the requirements  of lhe country are clamoring loudly  for some able men .at the head of public affairs to remodel our financial  machinery from beginning to end���������to  cut off many of Mir present useless ex-  penditures,i anil place revenue collecting and expenditure more in the hands  CURES COUGHS AND COLDS.  Mrs. Alonzo H. Thurher, Freoport, N.S.;  says: "I hud a tcvero attack of Grippa  and a bad cough, with grout difficulty in  breathing.

It may have  been necessary for the government lo  have run the country for a time on the  lines of primative colonial niauag-  ment; but it has largely out grown  that condition now, and as a result is  calling loudly for men at the head of  affairs, with a breadth and grasp of intellect equal to the necessilses. Instead of attempting legislations on the  requisite' lines for a province of our  expansion, our precious government  appears to be hunting for class legislation, throwing community against  community, with lhe hope'of purchasing a majority vote to keep their own  precious importance in oflice thereby.  JUSTICE AS IT IS.  Even British justice has some strange  freaks occasionally. In Brandon,  Man'., Hilda Blake, at hor trial, pleaded  guilty to tlie charge of murder for  shooting a woman with whom she  was"employed, and she was sentenced  by Judge Killam to be hanged on the  22nd inst. At the same assizes another  woman pleaded guilty to manslaughter, in- taking her babe of six months  and leaving it on the prairie to starve,  perish .with cold or be devoured by  wild animals, as might, be its fate, and  she got a sentence of five years in the  penitentiary. Now' Judge Killam. is  considered one of the most capable  judges on the Canadian Bench. We  must then infer that in the one  case ho had jurisdiction and showed  leniency, and in the other, he had no  alternative, and gave the utmost penalty. The hislory of Hilda Blake, who  is but 22 years of age, is that in her  younger years she was a waif and was  deprived of that paternal training thai  might have made her a useful woman  and a credit to society. It has already  reached the public that she bought the  pistol, with which she did the deed, for  the purpose of ending her own life, and  in a peculiar condition of mind, she  changed her intentions and thot her  mistress. Of course it will be readily  admitted that any one who cither.commits suicide or, in a moment of weakness takes the life of another, cannot  beat the time of sound mind; and'if.  ihe history of poor Hilda Blake's parentage was available, it might be ascertained she inherited weak or unfavorable mental conditions.  It may also be said the other woman  was not of sound mind, but there  is a  When- the children are  .hungry, what do you give  them ?   Food.  When thirsty ?    Water.  Now use the same good  common sense, and what  would you give them when  they are too thin? The best  fat-forming food, of course.  Somehow you think of|  Scott's Emulsion at or.ce.  For.a quarter of a century.  it has been niakinr thin  children, plump; weak children, strong; sick children,  healthy. I  heartless phase of her case that may  be altogether absent in that of Hilda  Blake. Jj\ the one case there is an en-  tiro absoj/ee of the ordinary feelings of  humanity, for what woman possessing  them could leave her own offspring,  Hiuiling perhaps in her face at the  time she did it, out on tlie cold prairie  tcnieot with the most-suffering termination ii is possible to imagine.  A full consideration of the two cases  and a proper regard for the safety of  our fellow beings would say il was unsafe, in their present state of minds, to  leave   cither    of   these   unfortunate  women at large; but if there is to be a  death   the   places of the two   women  should  be changed, although  we are  opposed to capital punishment, at least.|  in such instances.   It will be a crying  shame" on the people of Brandon and  district if they allow that poor woman  lo bo hanged 'without at least   doing  whal  they can to have her sentence  commuted  by   the authorities - at Ottawa.   Taking in tho facts that at best  her early training was neglected; her  parentage perhaps being vicious  and  in   other   respects   bad;     that    she  first   contemplated   suicide   and in a  moment   of   weakness   changed   her  mind and'shot another with whom she  never had a quarrel; that she refused  counsel at  her trial,   and when fairly  accused of the act acknowledged the  whole truth and demanded the utmost  penalty of the law for her crime, it is  at once   a   clear case   for   executive  clemency; and when saved from death  if placed in  a properly conducted reformatory,   where   her    surroundings  would be moral and educational,   her  later days  might develop assurance of  ah exemplary nature.  1 If ever there was a lame, indefensible  law, it is that under which the voters'  lists of the province are made up. The  aim of later Canadian legislation is to  give one vote, and one only, to every  male resident 21 years of age, not  otherwise disqualified ; but under the  slip-shod law of this province a man  can practically have as many votes as  he likes-.in different parts of the country. For instance,.Tom Jones is a resident of tho Slocan today. He makes  tlie legsl declaration and if he'ls 21  years of age and a British subject, and  unless it can be proved he has left the  province, his name goes on even at a  court of revision. If a general election, or a bye-election follows, he can  apply and have his name changed to  the constituency in which he resides.  Though his name was put on in the  Slocan, if a bye-election is to take  place7a month hence in Nelson, all  that Mr. Jones has to do is to move to  the Nelson division, a few days before  polling, and vote at the election. If  another election takes place in Victoria a week or so later, he can remove  thither and have his name changed  from Nelson to Victoria and vote there.  In this way a faithful band of voters  can go around the country carrying  bye-elections to su|������their parly, which  comes in pretty handy after protests,  or in vacancies occurring in any other  way. The proper plan is to make all  register in the constituency in which  they reside, and knock oiT their names  after leaving it, with no changes  from constituency to. constituency,  until the revisions just before general  elections. Now, there aro on the present Slocan list 1932 names, and it ia  safe to say there are not more than  1100 of the parlies resident: of the division. The other 832 are either dead,  out of the province altogether or, in  other constituencies. If they are dead  or out of the proyince, they ought to  be knocked oil' the provincial lists al-.  together, which could easily have been  done had proper steps been taken before the court of revision ; but there is  no provision for knocking them off the  Slocan lists while they are residents of  any other parts of the province. This  is the great objection to the law as it  stands.       ' '  50c ������nd $1.00, all druggists.  _.8COTT & BOWNE. Chemists.Toronto.

To the world she has hitherto  been merely tho daughter of a Doctor Richmond, an obscure country  practitioner. Her mother is close by,  living in a cottage belonging lo a person called Wai-rendcr. L may warn  you that in him you will find your  greatest  danger.  " Warrender I Christopher Warrender, of Merridale. Does he know her?"  " Yes, if you havo heard,any damaging stories aboul him, 1 advise you  to let Mies Richmond hear one or two  in a casual manner."  " I am afraid   lhat I know none."  " Then invent them. After thai go  on with your couriahip, it will be safe.  And confide your hopes lo my brolh-  er, wilhouk. teeming lo be loo eager  for  money."  " Tour instructions are rather difficult," he said with a laugh. " IIow-  Bver, it all seems plain sailing, and  I will risk it. There is always some  way out of the difficulty in such a  cage, if things turn out diisappoinl-  ingly." ���������  " It may not be so easy when you  have my brother lo deal with."  " Ho is nothing more to mo than any  ono else. 1 am not a child lo be frightened by tin old man." !  Ho rose and strolled away. Kilmeny  had promised hira another dance, and  ho was  waiting   for    it.  " How did you onioy your promenade with Mr. Daryl?" ho asked her  when  they were  again   together.  " More than any other part of lhe  evening, but 1 had time to observe  that you paid no attention to my admonition. You have relapsed into laziness evor since 1 left you:"  " Oh, I never try lo do any better I  Whalt is the good of life if. ono does  not suit oneself. ? . Do ��������� you know all  th'e people here? Mr. Daryl has made  a. careful selection and e'vt'ry one  whom he asks always comes. Thero are  a few Unhappy wretches who are biting their nails wilh vexation at being  left out."  " How do tj'ou know ?" the girl ask-  Bd.  " X miss the parly from Monkton Cos-,  tie. For my part, I nevor could see  lhe sense of interfering with people  >r bothering about whether they are  ���������trail-laced or not. One does hear queer  itories abom Lord Monklon, and they ,  ure a wild set, if ono is lo credit all  that people say, but what is that to  uiybody else?"  " It    ought  lo    make  a   difference.  Dne ought  to  choose one's friends.  I  ������.m  glad to know, for instance,  from  ivhat you say,  that everybody here is j  lho    right sort  of person.    I like Mr..  Daryl for that." |  "Do you? Well,  it seems quite dif-(  Terent to me. Then there is Warren-'  dor-���������Warrender -of Merridale.  1 never  guile believed  thai any of the stories  about him  wero  Irue until I    missed,  ���������jim to-nighl." !  ' " Mr. Warrender ?" Kilmeny said un- _  iertainly. |  " Yes. He lives qu'ite close lo Mr.;  Daryl, and belongs to a good family.  I suppose it is because our host got  too much of lhat kind of thing from  his own people that he is so particular  low.'" i  "What do you mean ? What kind of  thing 1"  " Oh, well, one does not speak of  It openly. Sowing one's wild oats gen-|  ���������rally takes pretty much the same  lorm. And there was some excuse for ,  iim, for he did not expect to be rich,  tnd I dare say he wanted to get some  ������njoyment  ou'l  of  his  money."  'I do not believe any stories. I know  Mr. Warrender, and I am certain that  they are not true, if they are bad  ones!"    . -   ' i  Lord de Bru|ync brought his gaze to  her face,, with a'look of concern and  compunction.  "I beig you* pardon,'/ he murmured. t " I would not have said a word if  I had known that Warrender was an  acquaintance of yours I But I understood from lyou that you were a stranger and, knew nobody. You' are quite'  right to sland ulp for your friend, and,  Cor mjy part, I am su're that. nothing  they say about him is true. I,too.  never believe these things; they are  io concern  of  mine."', i  "Then  you should'not speak about  them," Kilmeny said, holding her head  very  high.   It  is   not    right   to   take  away a man's character first, and then  to< say that you don't believe the stories.    Besides, I .know that   you  do believe in them. You said what you did:  only when _,rou found out that 1 knew ;  Mr.   Warrender.    He   is   much   better i  away   from   this  place,  if people  talk j  as you do."   . j  "I am really awfully sorry." hean-  sweretl,  with   a look  of.  what   seemed  to the girl   to be genuine  contrition.;  "If he is you'r friend that is enough, j  I  will  believe   that  he : is  everything,;  that is igood. Please forgive me for-re-  tailing  gossip,  and   forget    what  has  been .said.   I shall  not rest until you  tell  me  thai.   I am- absolved."  "I thought that nothing mattered  io you? Let us say no more about  <t." '-"'.���������'  "Somo thin'gs mailer to mo. Cf I  im careless and let people manage  their own affairs, I do not want to be  unjust."  " Let uis change the subject. Don't  iell me any- more of the exclusions  from the ball. Tell me about, the people who are here. They are till good  and irreproachable, and have never  done anything wrong in (heir lives.  I know you and*Lady Penryth and  Mr. Daryl. Tell raw about some of the  others." ,  ���������'���������   .'-.'������������������  Lord! de  Bruyne  had  to  look  away  to hide his smile.  "I don't pretend  that I have never  done aixyi-binK; wrong," ho said. "Good  ness knows I have many a sin on my  conscience. Your rebuke is just Miss  Richmond. But of late, you see,, I have  turned over a new leaf, and am quite  sleady now. Mr. Daryl, too, has be-  I come a man.of benevolence, and Lady  Penryth is j-econciled to her brother.  So' wo are all on the good side and deserve some  commendation."  But Kilmeny's brow was clouded  during the reisl of tho timo lhat they  wero together.  CHAPTER   V.  Kilmeny had taken the latchkey,  and sho let herself in on her return  home. There was a lamp lighted for  cr in 'the hall, and she made her solitary, way to her own room, which' she  occupied alone. She longed to see her  mother, though it had beon arranged  that no one should sit up for her, and  she felt a terrible loneliness for the  first time in her life, as sho sal. down  in all her finery on the side of her  bed and looked around her. Her father was far away and Christopher War-  render seemed to be separated from  hor in Some inexplicable fashion. He  scarcely ever called, and then- only  when she was Ou't.  Kilmeny's thotight went back miserably to the evening when they had  dined at his ,ho-use, which seemed (o  her now lo have been the last happy  time lhat she had known, ner mother  had been different evor since, and had  treated Christopher differently, Could  it be that these stories which Lord de  Bruyne had spoken of as notorious had  she sat' there upon the bed, with her  gay ball-dress crushed around her. She  hated it as sho rose and put it off  before she crept into bod, her heart  aching and  her   mind full of  unrest.  The next clay Jessica brought her  breakfast lo the bedside to her, and  Mrs. Richmond followed, with a kind,  wistful face, to look at her daughter,  Jessica was eager to hear all about  the ball, and Kilm<my tried to tell it  with her usual spirit, conscious all the  lime that her accounl was a failure.  She knew thai Mrs. Richmond was  watching and listening anxiously���������less  lo what Kilmeny said than to how she  said it���������but, when it was over, she  went away, and Kilmeny was left  alone again.  The sound of Chris Warrender's voice  outside and the tramping of his horse's  feet presently aroused Iher. She  sprang from her bed and placed herself where she could hear what he had  to say. He seeinsd to have brought  his horse close to tho window of the  sitting room in order to speak lo Mrs.  Richmond.  "Good morning. All are well, I suppose ?"  "All aro well, thank you,"  "nave you heard from Doctor Richmond ?"  "No���������there   has  been  no   tiime  yet."  ���������'Well, good morning, Mrs. Richmond,"���������"Good morning."  The horse drew back froml the window, and Kilmeny could hear its retreating footsteps as Christopher  rode away. She dressed hastily and  wenL downstairs. Mrs. -Richmond was  alone when sho entreed the sitting room, and her eyes looked as if  they had been lately .filled with tears.  "Mamma," Kilmeny said abruptly,  "Chrif- has been here. J could hear  all that you said from my window. He  did not ask for me; you did not invite  .hi.m in. I want to know what has  made this change?"  "Dear Kilmeny, when Chris comes  here you are nearly always out, and  I dare say that disappoints, him." _  "That might accounl for the change  in him, but not for the change in you.  It began that evening in his garden."  Kilmeny spoke In a voice which faltered in spite of her resolution. _ If  Mrs. Richmond confessed to having  heard anything against Christopher,  anything which she believed to such  an extent as toiriiiakei her resolve to  put" an end to the intimacy between  him and her family, Kilmeny felt: as  if nothing was worth living, for. She  would not care then what became of  her or where she went. But Mrs.  Richmond was silent.     ,  "You heard something that evening  which made you anxious to break off  acquaintance with Chris. Y'ou wrote  to papa next morning about it. Chris  knows you wrote, and y'ou, and he are  only waiting to hear what papa will  say. Chris coines here.hb more until  papa has written. ', Mamma, I heard  something last night lhat gave me an  idea what it was about, but I could  not believe it. If it is true, if you  are,convinced beyond the shadow!.of a  doubt that it is true, do, not speak.  Just be silent,^ and 1 shall know, what  to think. I'couldnot bean to have it  put into words."  Her straining ears waited for- a  sound, but none came, and when she  looked at Mrs. Richmond she was  weeping. .  "Mind, I don't know what it is I"  cried Kilmeny. "It was only a whisper which reached me, and I said that  t did not believe it, but it must be  true.' Don't tell me any more. I  could not bear it. Let.us never speak  of it. again."  "I hoped it might be arranged somehow," said Mrs. Richmond. "I hoped  you might not have to leave me,  darling. Even now, if your father  were home, something might be done.  But h'S'. has not even had liimo to  write, and I do not know what to do."  "Could we not go away? We need  not stay in'this house I" Kilimey.  cried wretchedly, sitting down at her  mother's feet and looking up', into her  face. . "If we cannot speak to���������to���������  Mr. Warrender, or have anything to  do with him, we ought not to be in  his house.     Let us.Jeavei at once."  "We cannot���������that is the worst of il!  And I feel jusl as unhappyi as you -at  having' to stay in Chris's house when  we have to treat h.imt so. But'I have  promised hot to leave until your, papa's  return, and he is to settle everything." '  "Then, mamma," K:lmeny said, "I  must arrange so that I shall not bco  Chris again. Please do not say any  more about it, and let me go away  myself. Do any of the others know ?"  she asked suddenly.  "No one . knows anything about it  but you, and I hoped that y'ou might  not hear of it until papa's return. If  you like, darling, I will tell you the  whole story now that you know something. I can fancy what a shock any  whisper ot it must have been, to you."  "I don't want to hear it," Kilmeny  said, rising. "What I know is quile  enough. I think, mamma, I will lie  down for a little while, and please  don't  let anybody  iu."  She went away without waiting for  her mother to speak. If she could  only escape anywhere 1 If she need  not continue living in Chris's house  where everything reminded her of him!  Last night's scenes, which the shock  of the morning had driven out' of her  mind, came back on her with a sense  of longing. She might find oblivion  there for the pain which she'was experiencing. She did not care for Lady  Penryth's insolence or for any humiliation which might awail her if only  she could gel away. A knock at her  door roused her after a long time, and  a note was thrust under it.  She went to pick it up. IL was in  Mrs. Richmond's writing and contained these words���������  "Mr. Daryl's carriage is waiting outside, and you are to go in it to see  hiim.. He has something imporlant to  say lo you. .1 am not lo speak to you  before you leave. May Heaven watch  over and protect my darling I"  Kilmeny threw the letter down and  ran out. She met the old servant in  the  hall.  "Where is mamma ?" she cried.       <  "She went away a good while ago.  She told me- not. lo disturb you until  she had gone, and thati when the carriage came? I was to give you the  letter."  "Gone I How could mamma go  without me 1 Who has beon here today ?"  "Mr. Daryl was with the mistress  for a long time.. But you need not  ask mo any thing, miss. 'I never saw  such goings ou since I came into the  family, and that was jusl after Miss  Jessica was born. Mr. Christopher  never coinos'lo the house now, and you  are taken up with Mr/ Daryl and his  fine friends, and the mistress crying  her eyes out whenever nobody is looking. And now she and tho children  are all gone off home, leaving me to  pock up and follow, without me knowing what anylhing means. But you,  Miss Kilimeny���������you can go to Mr.  Daryl's and enjoy yourself, and not  trouble your head what, becomes of  any of us."  "As if I could enjoy anything without them all I" cried Kilmeny indignantly "You know that is impossible,  Hannah. Oh, if there was only some  one to tell m,e what il means! Why  did mamma go away, and why am I  left behind without a word? Tell me,  Hannah; you know more than you  say I   Tell mo what' has happened I"  "I know no more than you indeed.  Miss Kilmeny 1 ��������� Your mamma said:  you were to go to Mr. Daryl's, and  ho would tell you everything."  Outside the horses were stamping,  and the coachman was looking in  curiously and impatiently. Kilmeny  glanced round the empty house, where  her voice and Hannah's already went  echoing through the silent passage.  Everything was indeed changed, and  nothing was left to her but Mr.  Daryl, whose acquaintance she had  wilfully chosen. Sho turned away  from Hannah and went back to her  own room.  Presently she returned with her hat  on. She hugged Hannah silently and  went out, looking very proud. The  footman ran to open Ihe carrage  door, the coachman touched his hat.  and they were oft.  'Kilmeny's bearing was just as proud  when she went u'p the steps of the  gloomy gray house which she had once  so much longed to enter. Her eyes  wero dry and  bright.  There was a footman wailing who  requested Miss Richmond lo see his  master in his own room, and she followed him. He took her to a part of  the houjse where she had never been  before, and ushered her into a splendid apartment in which the master  of the house "was seated, waiting, impatiently. As Kilmeny's eyes /fell on  him, she experienced'. a revulsion of  feeling. He looked so shrivelled and  cynical as he r sat there waiting for  her; and there was such an evil gleam  in his eyes, that she wished she had  never seen him,. He sniiled,_ but the  smile failed to brighten his face as  he held ou't his hand to her. ~  " I hope Mrs. Richmond told you  nothing further?" he said abrubtly.  "How any one guessed my secret I  am a|t a loss to know, but; as you  know something and as other people  have found out more, -nothing remains  buft. for the rest to be published. Sit  down ; have you any name but that  outlandish one?"  ' 'I have no name but Kilmeny. And  if you please, I would rather not hear  any more of  the story you speak of."  "Nonsense!" he cried sharply. "You  have left vour old life behind, and you  must forget all these people who  brought you up. You belong to me���������  not them I Xhey were paid for what  they did, and they have done wilh  you. It is not fit that my granddaughter and heiress should be mixed  up with peox>le who are merely respectable and nothing more."  . "Your granddaughter I" .Kilmeny  cried. "What can you mean? Doctor  Richmond is my father, and he. is  nothing to you! I do not know what  you  aro  talking  about I"       ���������  "Then you did not-hear the story?  What can that woman have teen thn'-  ing of ?"  " Do you mean, my : mother, Mrs.  Richmond?" .''  "She-is not your mother I Sit down;  what I have to tell you will take some  time, though I shall .make it as short  as possible. It is not exactly the kind  of thing one cares to dwell on."  Kilmeny obeyed. Everything seemed, to be reeling round her- in the  shock of what she had just been told.  To be Continued.  HEROES II mm.

Most  distinguished amongst them is Girou-  ard Bunbashi, who has temporarily  loft his important post, the presidency  of all the Egyptian railways, and  has been atlached to Gen. Buller's  forces with, al thirly-two, the rank of  lieut-colonel; lhe man who, Steevens  says, "never loses" his head, nor for-*  gets his own mind;" who as a subaltern had a record sufficient to mako  the reputation of any engineer in the  world.

The fortunate individual is Mr.  David Crowoll, a highly respected resident of Hortonvi'lle. ,,  ,  .Below is his experience, in substance, r  as he gave it" to us:���������"About two years,  ago, tor the first time in my life, 1 began, lo realize fully what ill health *>-  meant. Th������ first symptom was .'a  feeling of overpowering drowsiness ���������  whicL crewt over one at times. Of lea  I would be at work in lili'j field when  the drowsiness would seize me) and I  would find that it .required, I've exorcise of allnniy will-power 11& 'keep  awake. In a short tllmia I was attacked '  by sharp piercing pains, which sholi ���������  through the lower part of any.  back. At first this did not trouble mo  very much during tho day',' Ibul. at  uiighl the pain became' almost unendurable and often I would not close  my eyos throughout the whole night.  Gradually a nausea and loathing ior  food developed. Somiiliimes I would  sil down to a maal with a keen appetite, but after a onoulhiful on so had  passed my lips, sickness and'vomiting  would follow. I became greatly reduced in flesh and in a shorl timte 'was-  but a wreck of miy former self.; The  doctor said lhe trouble, was disease of  the kidneys, but his treatment did not  help nue. My mother who was something of a nurse, urged me!-to tryi Dr.  Willitiins' Pink Pills,, and at last to-  satisfy her more than from hopes of  being cured, I took up their use. After  taking one box I seemed better, and I  resolved to try another. Before the  second box was used my condition,  wjis improved beyond gainsay and 1  felt sure the pills were responsible  for it. I look two more boxes- and bo-  fore they were all used tho pain in my  back had wholly disappeared, any, appetite had returned, and I felt- like a  new man: For the sulrn of Iwo dollars. '  I cured myself of a painful disease.

Thirty three years, the Frenchman,  says, is tho fascinating age for woman,  and nearly all mankind under 20 and'  past 25 agree with the Frenchman.  Byron found the young girl charming,  bul  complains that she is^  "All giggle, blush, half pertness and  half pout,  And glancing at mamma for tear there  ia harm in what you, she, it, or'  tihey may be about."  And he, as well as the fin-de-siecle  beaux, did not find the conversation  oi young girls particularly edifying,  for he says:  "The nursery still lisps out in all they  utter,  Besides  they   always  smell  of    bread  .and butler."  ���������A woman io be especially charming  must have a close acquaintance with  all the liltle foibles of human nature;  sho must know the" shams of the world  before she can assume them, before she  can be diplomatic.  The-young girl scorns diplomacy as  something unworthy ; she isi'swe'et and  gentle; but so dreadfully honest; her  likes and dislikes are so strong.  Extreme youth is merciless; it  paints in, dark hiues. what it dislikes  and dreads, and the dark hues aie just  as exaggerated as the rainbow light  with which it decks what it loves.  To the young girl the world is a  paradise devoutly believed in, and life  is a picture with all its bright lighttr  on. Sine is half a child, half an angel,  dwelling In the clouds arid full of impossible ideals and sentiments. Aud  poor, erring, earthy man finds it ax  awful strain to try'to live up to tin?  standard, to all the God-like qualitie������  with which hex imagination has en  dovyed him. Is it any wonder, then.  that, with a sigh of relief; he seekt  the society of tha more mature woinar  who allows him V; be himself- absolutely? "     .

She knows that no one. is wholly bad  that there can be no situation so ter  rible that there, aie not some extenuat  ing circumstances, and, what is bettei  still, she jnakes  allowances    for    the  shortcomings of her friends.

O'XEEFE,   'Diet. AIar.������rer, Montreal, Que.  has been abundantly proved during the  PHOgress  of    lhe present    scheme ' of  mobilization. Instead of the dealy and  confusion which used to ensui-o   when  the uniforms wero despatched from the  .      London conti'e to a number of points  far and  near,  we now havo a well-organized system under   which  the goods  axe senl  to the various 'provincial centers, there to be redistributed. Though  strong and unshrinkable, the material  is  much  more flexible  than  the  customary  cloth, and enables the man to  use his wea.pon   to   greater advantage.  I i Any soldier will loll  you chat the  man-  //  nal and firing exorcises   can be    performed wiLh much greater ease when  khaki   has  been  substituted   for    the  tight-fitting    and   padded  regulation  tunic.   In South Africa, as in the Soudan, there will be times when all officers    and  men must  sleep in   Iheir  slothes, boots, and accoutrements, and  in these conditions a khaki suit is as  superior   to  ihe average  uniform,    as  pyjamas Jo the frock coat and tweed  >     trousers "of the oivilian.  VERY POPULAR.  Some  army experts rtTe sirongly in  fcrvor   of    a more  extensive     use ,  of  khaki for    the- purpose of campaign-  .,     Lhg, and especially of a variety called  ���������'���������millerain drill."   Officers  stationed in  India    have    borne    testimony  to the  rain-repelling properties of this fabric-  which made it particularly adapted for  use' as an overcoat. The same "drill''  is also,  suited for the construction of  army tents, because the material does  not   absorb   moisture,    besides   which,  after rain, the tents are not so heavy  to move about���������a very important matter    to troops when, campaigning:   A  thermometer placed in millerain tents  has proved that    the temperature    is  'tower by ten to fifteen degrees inside,  . as    compared with    other tents.   The  clotli, being porous, the heated atmos-  iphero is   able to escape, while, the material   turns the  harvest  downpour of  rain.      At the present time there are  several   regiments  in    India,   cavalry  and   infantry,    clothed    in    millerain  khaki,  as    well as batteries of artil  Iery. The suits which will be worn by  our  soldiers are  not  waterproof,  but  they are well adapted for bard work.  lo    "become  dust"   is    khak- shudan.  PATENTS BT WOMEN.

Mr. Krakenberg has commenced, on
a -small scale as yet, the manufacture
of cigars in the city, and is now ready
to place them on the market. We understand.that he is a: man of extensive
experience in that line,and will.doubtless make such an article as will command an extensive sale.in the city and
The C. P. li. passenger train in some
manner jumped the track at the safety
switch, near the Payne ore house, last
Saturday morning. The engine and
cars ran off about three feet, partly up
the siding, and no damage was done,
It is' supposed1 that the lock gave way
and the switch turned after the first
trucks were on, as the tender, which
was ahead, did,not get off the rails.
Mr. Lawrence came up from Nakusp
and had the train in running order
about midnight.
A chap named Miller, in an eastern
American   town,   advertised   that   he
would pay people, who entrusted their
money with him, 520 per cenc. interest,
and in a lew days, his office was literally deluged with deposits.   It is said
he kept' the money   in   barrels.   An
Australian salesman sells cigars'at .��>1(>,
bits of string at  So,   and he rakea  in
irom $150 to $500 in all the towns of
Kootenay each night.    If you should
call the men, who   throw away their
money   that way,* "fools" they would
chase you around the earth with a shot
