These prop-  Is  were   lately   acquired   by   the  Ifensons, who own the Highlander,  Slocan City, Dec.'3.���������A meeting was  held in Sloc;.n City this evening to discuss some waj^s and means of bringing  this district before the investing public. It was decided to begin an active  crusade in the direction of advertising.  At present the camp suffers from the  sins of its fathers and the unfortunate  speculations of a year or so ago. The  prejudice against these d'-y ore bodies  can only be removed by doing work on  them, and what work that is now being,  done is proving satisfactory. ,.  , The theories of experts who have  simply spent a day in a district are to  bo distrusted. It is upon such cursory  oxiiriiiiiiHion. that-, the locality is condemned. Meanwhile a few outfits  with more courage than capital are  gaining depth-' on their properties and  the result of their work will probably  encourage further development.  Development is being carried on at  the Alexandria, whore they have been  sinking a shaft;. also work at the old  Five Friends mine, and. Bank of England. A.t the Calumet on Dayton creek  they are in over halfway on their long  crosscut to the vein.  At the Evening Star work continues  On the shaft, the vein being wide and  containing considerable, ore. This  property and tho Golden .Wedge on  Lemon crock are the chief ones upon  which much work is being done. They  are types of the -condemned quartz  veins, but appear to be -fairly persistent in size ai.d value.  Development work under a lease has  been resumed upon the Ohapleau.  This is another quartz vein. It has.  shipped ������6,000 worth of ore without  getting more than 60 feet from the  surface. A shaft will be sunk and the  drift tunnel continued.  The Knights ,of "Pythias appear to  be very much in ovidenc(e these times.  On Thursday, evening last, dipt. C. L.  Behriscn,,of VancOuver.visited the city  and conferred the degree of Uuiform  Il'ink.on some 24 of'the,65 members of  tlie local lodge. It must beWme kind  of a' svt'eating.rprocess;V. if we are to  judge from; the length of: tinie it tbpk  to complete the .operation.'

The  Joker is being operated under the dir-  'ectiOn of Mr. Ernest Mansfield, whose  vigorous methods are largely responsible for.the, very satisfactory showing  already made on the, property.

What promised tp.be  a quiet season in.tiie- entire, mining  world has -proven/to. be a red letter  year in the Slocan, and if this district,  does, riot, enjoy, its most substantial  boom with the opening of spring there  is,no virtuoin the signs of thc-times.  rs  G.  ������CJ55������-7  'Robbie, Burns.'

"Your paroxysms aro exceedingly  severe," says thj medico .who has been  observing with his head on one Hide.  He has said so to every ono in lhe ship.  " X'li tell you what I'll do���������I'll order  yau squeezed lemon in potass water."  "The very (hingl Just what I le.'l I  want. Oh I my dear doctor (bysteii-  'cally), how shall I ever sufficently  Ih^nk you! I felt I was dying, nnd  yoit have saved my life. Do ooine back  fax ail hour, and see how I am getting  on."  "By all means, my lady. Her lady-  ,ship must bo kept warm," he says to  the drooping Maria, and hurrying  away, buries himself in the steerage  far out of the call of the indignant  dame when, an hour later, after a  temporary struggle with his last prescription, she is once more screaming  for tho hapless medico. If he turns into his berth for an hour's sleep, he is  aroused by , a terrific thump on the  door.  " Docther, doc-ther!"  ��������� "What's the matter? Who's there?"  "It's me, yer honour," says a gigantic Hibernian, thrusting into the  cabin a shock of red hair, from beneath  which his eyes danoe all over the Ixil-  tles that aro rattling about in iheir  ���������racks.  "Well,   what   do  you  want?"  '\  "Biddy  Maclore, me own  wife,   yer  honour,   is  dyin'  forenenst    me   ej'es  "You're too known', you are," he  muttered. " I.was a, fool to let on to  you. I shall havo to watch you pretty  close, my man, or you'll be doing me  out. of my share."  The.interview of Mr. Stillwater^ with  Sir Benjamin Peakman was satisfactory. The Knight, not feeling very  well, required attentions which Mr.  Stillwater undertook to minister for  the sake of a few small coins of the  realm, about which there was an  amusing farley between the quickwitted! knave and tho much more able  man of business.- The latter had Iho  Ijesl of it.  "If you should satisfy me," said Sir  Benjamin, "T Khali probably find a  place for you in my house at Quebec.  You can enter, on your duiio3 at once.  And as I don't like your coming to  wait on 'me from Ihe sfoirage, I have  arranged wilh the purser that you  shall occupy a cabin- amidship. Gel  your things removed (here as soon as  you   can.-  Mr. Crog was lying in wait for Mr.  Stillwater when he returned, and waa  not sorry to hear that the latter was  to remove from the steerage.  "He'll have enough to do to look  after Sir B.," said the steward to himself."  Accordingly he assisted Mr. Stillwater wilh alacrity to remove his effects, among which was a heiivy portmanteau,   to  his  new    berth.   On   his  Will ye come before she s gone clane   paftj Mr   saiIw,lter was not 8orry to  What's  ofA to glory ?  "Stuff!    they're all dying,  the matter with her?"  " She can't heave no furder, ye honour ; and she says it'll be the 'death of  hor in five minnits, if ye don't foms."  -.    " Maclore I"  "Yer honour 1"  "Do you. see those cards in a little  tray ��������� on your right ?"  " I do, yer honour."   ���������  "They're orders for Bass's ale.

You're looking seody under the eyes; and, mind you, don't, you  bother me again. to-day."  ���������   "Thank ye, yer honour, yo've Baved  her life;" and helping himself to two  cards,  Maclore  goes off  to  claim  the  " medicine."  Mr. Crog's engrossing cares had not  prevented him from giving some attention to the subject of the fugitive  criminal. Great indeed was his chagrin when it was annoncod on the morn-  .ing; of the third day that the man had  been' found, by a rival steward, and in  the captain's cabin. He tried to look^  ;iip Mr. Stillwater, who, having disap-  'peared into the men's quarters, had  not emerged again. But that person  had very successfully concealed himself. He was^provided with all thai he  needed, and he made no requisition?)  on tho steward. He managed to get  his tea brought to him by a fellow-  passenger, who was just able to crawl  up and down again with then- (in mugs.  Mr. Stillwater had kept his ears opened  to everything that was said around  him during the two days, and I his  acute listener acquired many a hint  of the experiences, aims, and dcslinies  of  t he , emigrants.  Towards the afternoon of the fourth  day, Mr. Crog, provided with a lan-  thorn, entered tho men's quarters  on (he starboard side of the engine  bulkheads and proceeded deliberately  to scan the faces of all ihe invalids who  tenanted its rows of cribs, lop nnd bottom. The men lay four deep, side, by  side. At length, at the farthest end,  in the inside berth of 1 ho lowest row,  Mr.' Crog recognized the great wideawake, under which, oven in the darkness, Mr. Stillwater conce-ilod his face.  Tho truth was, ho had no objection to  the skirmishing of rats over his countenance. \  . "Halloo !" said Mr. Crog. " Here you  are !     I thought you must be dead."  "More dead than alive," replied the  other, shading.his.face from the light.  "Take away that confounded lanlhorn  ���������it blinds one." ���������  "All right. Aro you able to get up?  Tho weather's b������ginning to moderate,  and the person you know of has sent  down to I ho steerag.-; lo ascertain if  there's a wally aboard in want of a  place."  . '   '     ,  "Bravo! That's all right.   I shall get.  up directly.   I've only 'Viein a hit lazy."  "I've such a game tot ell you of, about  our  runaway   friend.   Come  along   as  quick as you can."     ;. . .'  :   '���������  leaving his lanfhorn tor tho man to  take to tho .wash-room, the stewnrd  went off and waited for Mr. Stillwnter  at  the  top of  the companion.  "Come," he said, looking nt Mr.  Stillwater's improved ���������'��������� appearance,  "you're all right now���������and your eye Is  quite well." .  He. then related the story of Mr.  Fex's arrest, and of Iho subsequent  denouncement. Ths latter was not ho  much enjoyed by -Mr.-.Stillwnter iih Ihe  former. Hmvever, he laughed nl. Mr.  Crog's narrative,; which, being the  fourthl or fifth edition; had became by  this time considerably embellished.  "We still; have to find our man.  Well, the weather promises better now:  it will bring him out," said Mr.^Crog.  "I heard something while I was  lying in there," replied the other,  "which gave me a Jiotion thai there  was somebody aboard connected wilh  a robbery, at all events."'  "No. .Did you?" said Mr. Crog, keenly.   "Tell us all about  il."     :  "Better wait until I've- got .to ih?  bottom of it," replied Mr. Stillwater,  quietly. "Now, where shall..'!'f iind this  old gent, eh?"  .  "No. 35, port side, inside cabin.  Knock.   Ho  expects  you."  As Mr.., Stillwater went off, steadying hrmse~ to fnc motion of the ves-  w>i, Mr. Crog looked after him, with  ,������l  auspicious expression upon his face.  get away from Mr. Crog's too familiar  observation. / '  CHAPTER VII.  During the night the wind veered  round to the east and considerably  moderated, and the harornete.r leaped  up an inch and a quarter. The lale-^  rising sun emerged bright and clear  from tho hoiizon, and the vessel, being now fairly out in thu open Atlan-i  lie, and- running in a b'outh-twesterlyi  direction, sped on through a warm,  bright atmosphere. Tho huge swell of  the disturbed ocean had given place to  dancing waves, which seemed from the  rapidly-moving deck to toll along in  crystal-green battalions crested with  snowy foam. Before noon, Iho awning-  deck, fore and aft, was crowded with  lounging convalescents, in every variety of coslume, lying about in sheltered  and sunny spots. Above them, now  poising in relief against lhe clear blue,  sky, now hovering over tho flaky wake  of' the vessel, and ever and anon darting down to pick up some of tho gari  bago which the gaJley stewards had  thrown down the shoots, were huge,  graceful sea-gulls���������the prettiest scavengers in nature. Tho watch, dispersed about the decks, overhauled the  ropes, stays, tarpaulins, and other  goar, which had been injured by the  storm. A shroud-netting had been  rigged on the quarter-deck, to keep  off Iho passengers while ihe ship's carpenter and his mutes endeavored to  provide temporary bulwarks for the  large piece which had been carried  away by   tho wave.  In one ot lhe mosl comfortable places  on the lee-side of Ihe deck-house, which  had by her direction been secured at  an early hour by her maid, Lady Peak-*  man sat, propped up by cushions from  the saloon bunkers, which any other  passengers would have removed at  their peril, ller ladythip, however,  was accustomed lo presume on her hus-i  band's wealth, and on hor own superiority. She looked rather languid. Tho  last few days had convinced her onco  more of Ihe vanity of human wishes,  and the weakness of the human  stomach. Her large cheeks were depressed and flabby. Dark strokes underlined'hor eyes. A good deal of their  briglrn>;ss and fierceness was subdued,  and i he eyelids had a tendency to droop  over them heavily. But she. had caused  Maiia to array her in an elaborate  toilette. Over her 11 ick-grey hair sho  wore a beautiful cap of unplucked sea-  otter skin. Her dress was of olive  cloth richly embioidered, over which  had been thrown a fur-lined pelisse of  more ihin half her length.  Miss Araminta, who had also suffered extremely, if- less noisily ihan her  mamma, was a charming little pic.luie  of. a recovering invalid. She lay in,the  sun, in a scarlet cloak, left open, and  displaying an elegant travelling dreiis  of mouse-coloured malelasse trimmed  with fen I hers. On her head was a  coquettish little, felt kit. with .a  blackcock's feather, which suited nd-  niirably   her   fine- auburn  hair.

' But he had gone.  .The knight saw this. "OhI" he said,  "you wore .wondering who that man  was. He is the fellow I have engaged  as my temporary valet. He (- understands his business, though I don't like  his expression. His hair and whiskers  aro bea&tiy red."  Lady Peakman made no observation,  and the knight sat down and took up  William Black's latest novel���������one of  those books that havo charms alike for  the rudest and the most artistic mind.  Presently Miss Araminta, who had  been silently using'' her eyes, said,  "There he Ls, mamma I"  A tall young gentleman, in a coarso  tweed suit, passed from the companion,  and slightly . raising his hat lo Iho  young lady, proceeded along tho deck  further astern, where several persons  were extended at their case, protected from the slight wind by the saloon  skylight and its high combing.  Lady Peakman glanced approvingly  nt the young lord's figure, but presently her face assumed an air of astonishment and disgust.  "Sir Benjamin," she said, "come here  quickly." The knight, annoyed at being interrupted, came forward, smiling  like a chorub.  "Look here, my dear. Lord Pendlo-  bury hns gone and thrown himself  down on a rug at the feet,of that vulgar Mrs. McGowkio; and do you, see,  she. has the impudence lo smirk and chat  with him as coolly as if he wore a draper's assistant ? Do> go and tell him who  those people-aro. He will be' exceedingly ��������� mortified by-and-hy and if you  allow this' to go on without warning."  Si)- Benjamin, was not born a gentleman, and Una is said to bo a disadvantage which no after experience can  make up. He put his.hook undor his  arm. and swinging his glasses in his  hand, sauntered up the. deck to the  spot whore the young peer was abandoning himself to' (ho quaint and easy  liveliness of Iho IF. P. minister's  daughter. Mr. McGowkie, who had met  tlie young lord in the smoking-room,  was lniding and abetting with admirable Caledonian coolness. Sir Benjamin standing above, and bowing lo Mr.  McGowkio in his most polished manner, and beaming on tlhe whole party willi his curious smiling oyes and  large  flashing  teelh,   said,���������-  "Oh, can I,havo. n word wilh you,  my lord?"     ' ,,,..  Lord Pendlebury, inwardly cursing  Sir Benjamin for a troublesome old  follow, but thinking thnt ho might  havo .something lo say about his friend  Corcoran rose, and walked beside, the  knighl. who led the way amidships.  When they were fairly out ofihearing,  tho latter said,  "Lord Pendlebury, Lady Peakman,  who hup<ss you will permit me to present you to hor, I bought that I ought  io convey to you a piece of information. She is, you probably are aware,  quite ;in habituee oC society; and T  am sure thnt you will fuel that she  is only discharging her duty���������and���������and  will accept her kindly little intervention in tho spiiit in which it is  meant?" ,  Lord Pendlebury, astonished at this  exordium, merely bowed, nnd looked  straight  before  him.  " Lady Penkmaii was . afraid, you  know," said Sir Benjamin, who required all his blandness and all his resource  to acquit himself of the delicate mission, he had undertaken," lost you  should think us remiss, being  thoroughly conversant with our  little colonial society, and therefore  acquainted with all ihe colonial people  on' hoard���������as no doubt you can understand persons in our position are obliged to bo," said Sir Bonjamau, apologetically, wilh a simper, which did  not seem lo .cxerl upon the peer a  soothing effect, for the quick-eyed  kpight saw his nostrils dilating, "if we  did no! inform you who and .what I hey  are. Because, of course, proceeded Sir  Benjamin, with a winning effort at a  smile; ."we know that a peer would not  care lo bo associated -with any who���������  who though they might be very honest  people���������were not exactly persons of  any position, you know; in fa-ct, quite  the reverse."  "Oh, you arc quite mistaken about  that,", saul Lord Pendlebury, brusquely, hoping to cut short, this tirade,  which was,boring him extremely. "I  rather have a fancj' for odd company,  and cards are my particular whim,  But, lo tell j-ou 'the truth, J haven't  Ihsp.u info lhe steerage yet. Is Lady  Peakman afraid of fleas?"  "Oh dear no I You misunderstand  me my dear Lord Pendlebury,'" cried  !h������. knight, flushing up.

Klnibfilpy Itnnd Made orttirlli ConlnlnliiK  roi-tniici In Precious Stones  It  is not often  that it  is  given  to  man, outside of ihe favored gentlemen  who  figured  in  the stirring story  of  Aladdin  and  his wonderful lamp and  kindre'd   productions  of  rich   Oriental  imaginations,    to    travel  daily    on    a  high rond literally    groaning with diamonds.   When such an unusual privilege, is vouchsalcd, it would appear lo  bo (he proper thing to admit that one  might love the very ground he walked   on.    Unlil   a few  years  ago   there  was such  a road,  and it  was  neither  a vision of the pipo or the press agent.  It was  located  in  the Kimberloy district in South Africa, and when a man  walked over it he walked over millions  of dollars* worth of the precious stones.  Five thousand dollars a yard was the  record of some parts of the road. Tho  diamonds are noL there now, so it will  do'the gentle reader no good to take  a   ticket   for   Kimberley   and  seek   to  find a fortune in the street. It seems  that when the diamond mining industry  was  some years younger  than  it  is  to-day there was. a vexing scarcity  of water in the Kimberloy country. So  when a miner couldn't got a supply of  water to help him in his search he had  to   do   the   best   he  could   nnd   hustle  around wilh'his tools in the dry earth,  ne woulduspade hero and there until  he struck a lump of earth which held  the   eagerly    sought  prize.   Then   he  w-ould abandon the mound of earth his  spade had overturned and seek for diamonds in-another place. After a while  several   years  in   fact,  these  mounds  amounted lo a considerable obstruction  to  travel  and  further digging.      The  loose  earth  was  m   tho  way,- but  no  ono would volunteer to cart it-away,  Finally the. Kimberley Municipal Council offered to use the dirt in macadamizing the roads around the city, which  was branching out and reaching quite  respectable proportions.   The offer was  gladly, accepted by tho mine owners and  the mounds were cleared away.  Nearly a score of years later there  was a drop in the diamond'market.  The price of tho stones fell, and in order to bring about a return of high  figures the mine owners decided to real ict thoir output! This necessitated  a> big cut in tho pay roll, and as a result the Kimberley district was soon  overrun with unemployed 'miners. Then  some of lhe wise men.in the land came  lo the conclusion that they might pick  up a few overlooked gems from the  high road if (hey could get municipal  permission nnd a plentiful supply of  wnler. They got botn, for each year  a porlion of the road, which had been  strengthened by Ihe mound dirt was  turned over lo Ihe men and they worked on it with astounding results. Diamonds to the value of $200,000 were recovered yearlypfor several years. From  one little piece of road no bigger than  tho floor of a Harlem drawing room  there, was taken ?100,000 worth of diamonds. ,.  Wi SCOTIA FAE1EK.

Pink Pills, and as I have  experienced much beneiit from the m.e> .  of that medicine, 1 believu  it. my duty  to let others know  they can ba relieved  from a very painful    malady.     1   uni  now 75  years  of  age,  and am at,, tho  present time, and in fact ever since I  took a course of Dr. Williams'     Pink  Pills about two years ago, havo been on-  joying excellent health:      Beforo that  time 1 had    been    ailing      for      tomo  months, finally   I was attacked   with  salt rheum, which came out   mostly on  my hands.   It was ,not   long after its ������������������  first appearance  beforo 1   was unable ���������  to do any work  at  all with my hands.  I reported to all  the  domestic    euros I  could hear of, but the disease kept on  its course,  getting worse  and    worsen  until the palmj of my hands and my  fingers were  a mass  of  cracks,    open  sores and  hideous  scabs.   I    then  got  medicine from    the    doctor,    which   I  u.^ed    for    several ���������' weeks,      with    no  benefit    whatever,  ��������� my  hands   still  becoming more and more   cripp^d ;wiUi  the disease.   My  general    heal\i,'too,  at  this  time  was poor and I got discouraged aliogether,    believing    thera  was. no help for the terrible complaint  th-tt was gradually spreading over my  hands and  up my  wrists  towards my  .  arms.   It happened  one  day in conver--  sation with an  acquaintance that Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills    were   mentioned  in connection with some other casein  the neighborhood, and, ic was 'suggested that  I try  them for  salt  rheum.   I  had not  much  faith  in  the trial, but  concluded  to  get  a box  aud see what  good  (hey  might  do."    To my    great  delight, after using the box I found an  improvement in  the    condition of my,,  hands, and I-got six boxes more. I did'  not use all these, for before they were  bands wore as, sound as over. The n.ew  gone   the disease had vanished and my  '  skin came on as smooth and fresh as  if nothing hhd' been the mutter. ItookH  no   other   medicine   while   ueing   the  pills and the whole praise of the cure  is   due   tb  them.   My  general    health  was also   greatly  benefited   by    their  Uise  and  1 attended to my work with  more   energy'   and _i-n   better   spirits  than 1 had done for a number of years.  1   h/ive  been  in  excellent  health ' ever  since for a man of my years, .and  no  sign of salt rheum has since appeared.

All day the fierce sun had streamed  down with blazing beams which thoso  on board endured, oursed or grumbled  al, according to thoir various dispositions.  I The sensation of the day. had been  ' provided by a Lascar sloker.who, rushing from the inferno of' tho engine-  room, leaped headlong overboard, mad  , for ono delicious plunge into coolness  after enduring tho torments of heat.  "Man overboard!" rang out, Engines  were reversed. Ladies started from  languid recumbency. A smooth-faced  sttbo-ltern- offered ' a. hundred to one  -against "the nigger boing picked up,"  but no one' troubled to listen to him,  for the water hereabouts is swarming  with sharks. However, just as horror  beoame subdued into resignation; a  black spook was seen swimming vigorously. A boat was lowered and the  poor wretch- was dragged back, collapsing utterly when certain of safety.  All this, however, had happened six  hours ago. The incident had beon dis-  oussed, commented on and capped by  similar cases, and long before the  dinner bell rang tho ousto'mary stale  of boredom had again set in.  ' After dinner, when the sun had finally disappeared, and tho. stars shone  out of tho wonderful'luminosity of is.  nouLbern night, some one (probably tho  major's wife) proposed a - dance, and'  presently the notes of a waltz rose  and fell, alluring with its languorous  lilt of melancholy sweetness even those  who vowed they "didn't dancU" to seek  ' out partners.  Among tho many who oiroled around  were the officer in command. Captain  Asshoton and his partner Miss Phyllis Wtolsh.  The ladies of the Doveoot denied that  Miss W������lsh had any claims to the attractive adjectives by ,which the men  on board ship described her charming  manners and face. They emphatically  agreed among themselves" that the only  apilhet, she deserved was that of being  "an outrageous flirt."  Whatever her character might really  ba to-night, more men than Captain  Assheton thought Miss Phyllis Welsh  looked "uncommonly fetching.". Her  eyelids, heavy with dark lashes.droop-  ed as though to hide the exulting  brightness of the eyes they shaded,  while excitement restored" the bloom  which a year spent in Indian gayelies  had somewhat paled.  As she glided round she breathed  quicker than the heal of the evening  or the motion of the dance accounted  for. She wondered at her own sensations. To experience the delight, fear,  rapture and doubt whioh it had amused her'to make others feel half lorri-  fiod, half charmed her.  Onoe raising her eyes she met full  a glance from Captain Assheton, and  a thrill of certainty swept away the  last doubt whether or not her love was  returned.  "Lot's come and sit it out," said Cap-  'tain Asshoton, then he added, "I want  to speak to you���������to toll you, Phyllis"���������  He slopped abruptly on perceiving an  orderly doming to speak to him.  "Well, what is it?" he asked, peremptorily.  "Please, sir, tho doclor says Private Robinson is seriously ill."  Captain Assheton turned apologetically to his partner. "I must leave you  for a few minutes. Will you wait for  me here? I shall be back in five minutes."  "Yes," assented Miss Welsh, leaning  back languidly in a deck chair. \'l'l\  wail for you hero if you're not too  long."  Captain Assheton and the orderly  strode away.  Custom had not yet steeled Asshe-  toh's heart against feeling a pang of  sorrow; when called to visit the poor  fellows whoso dying words it was his  , duty when officer in command to'note  and report.       .  When Tommy Atkins dies there is  no useless fuss made over the event.  No loving hand clasps his to strengthen him during,tho last, struggle. No  'tears fall to tell him that even he, poor  fellow, has some one who will miss  him. Not The doctor merely reports  him "seriously ill." The officer on duty  comes to stand by his bedsido and note  down whatever message VTommy" may  ohooso to send to'his mother or sweetheart waiting for him at horned Then a.  few hours later, if on land, "Tommy"  is buried in a coffin the price of which  gov'ernmont stops out  of  his  pay,  or,  Above him, beside him, all-around the  deck lay other sufferers, listening and  watohing to hear what "the poor beggar" had to say.  It was hardly the pl&oe for confidences and Assheton felt fully the embarrassment ot the position. Kobin-  son, however, had reached the time  when the world rocedes into the background of one's consciousness, and  what has to bo done must be done at  onco, or left forever unaccomplished.  He feobly strove lo tako something  from under his pillow.  "Can I reach that for you?" asked  Assheton, gently.  "I've waited too long," said Robinson. "I intended lo send this back myself, but somehow I put it off from  day to day. I couldn't bear to part  wilhiil." He stopped a minute as he  succeeded in lifting up an envelope,  then he continued: VI want lo send Ibis  back to her, and tell her that though  sho sent me to tho devil���������I loved her to  tho ond." He added, as Assheton took  the envelope containing the photo from  him. "The address is written at the  baok of it."  "Is (here nothing else'I can do for  you?" said Assheton huskily.  "Nothing. Thank you, sir," replied  Robinson, and Assheton felt ho was  dismissed.  He turned away in silenco and left  the hospital  deck <  As he again passed through the dancers tho waltz was hastening to its  conclusion, and the laughing, talking  company wore dispersing in search of  ices and comfortable seats,  Phyllis Welsh wits still sitting where  Asshoton had left hor.  "You weren't long," she said, smiling. "What did 'Tommy' want to tell  you ? Do tell me all about it."'  ^  Something in her words grated  against Assheton's feelings. ne sal  down and replied slowly:' "He asked  me to return a photo to a girl and  tell hor that, though 'she played him  false, he loved her to the end."  "Oh I" cried Phyllis, "How interesting it sounds! Havo you the photo  there? Do show it to me."  "You must not ask ma to do that,"  said  Asshr.ton, gravely.  But Phyllis was not accustomed to  have her wishes ungralified. She leaned forward and looked up wilh her  wonderful dark eyes glowing. '"Will  you refuse ihe first request I've ever  made of j-ou?" she urged.  "Of course, if you insist"���������hesitated  Assheton.  "I do insist I I must see what the  girl is like! Some common, vulgar creature, I suppose, that the poor fellow  idealized into a pipe* of perfection."  "Probably," assented Assheton dryly taking tho envelope from his pocket  and  producing the photograph.  With eager, curiosity Phyllis bent  over. ���������  For I ho space of a second she stared, rigid with astonishment and dismay, then exclaiming, "Give it to me!  Oh! give it to me!" she tried lo snatch  the photograph from Assheton.  If. was too late, f Assheton, with  blank disgust, had already recognized  the  beautiful  likeness.  "Give it to me!" she stammered.  "Certainly," replied Assheton. "It  was  what' I promised  to  do."  Ho dropped the photo into - her  hands and strode away.  ���������4b/fbA������/&9.

The better classes use  tho English side saddle, although a fow  prefer tho more picturesque and safer,  bul less graceful, Spanish saddle. In  tho country districts the pillion is occasionally employed, while among the  lower classed many women ride astride  without exciting comment. When the.  natives are both pretty and good riders they display considerable coquetry  in  tho saddle.  I noticed one rider near .Tuana Diaz  who look my mind back to tho old days  of chivalry writes a correspondent. She  was a lovely girl of about fifteen or  sixteen, with a face like a Madonna  and a figure like an artist's model. One  little fool crept out beneath her silk  riding skirl, and to my surprise it was  devoid of hosiery. The. skin was like,  polished velvet, and was of a pinkish  tint. It waj shod wiLh a slipper of satin or silk, embroidered in color, and  had an arched instep which made the  foot all the more charming by its sotting.  The time to sea tho women at their  best is on Sunday morning, when they  ride from iheir homes to mass in the  nearost church or cathedral. On one  Sunday morning, while riding leisurely  into a small village on my way to (his  town. I met a crowd of worshippers  on their way to mass. Nearly all the  women were on muleback, arid sat or  lolled ai| if they w-erain an easy chimin their own homes. A fow, probably  wealthier Lhan" the others or else delicate in health, were accompanied, by  lil.tlo darky boys, who-held'oyer them  it parasol  or  an  umbrolla.  On Sunday each woman wears a huge  rosary, sometimes so largo.as to bo uncomfortable. I saw several that wore  so unwioldly (hat they went ovor th:>  .shoulders and formed a huge line, larger indeed than a string of .sleigh bells  Those are ornamental rosarifts and are  not used for prayer. Tho praying ros-  nry is as small aud. dainty as those  used by fashionable women in our own  Roman Catholic churches. Besides the  fan and; Iho rosary ovory woman was  provided with a neat arid often handsomely bound prayer book and a huge  lighted cigar or cigarette.  .This is indeed the land for women  who love the. weed.

II was a beautiful morning in June,  The fragrant air bore tidings of newly-awakened summer. The moon  was shedding its silvery light, and  chasing away the gloom of night, while  the stars peered through the dusky  air and-seemed to envy this old world  its' happiness. Through my open  window a gentle breeze carried tho  murmuring of the trees, and the sad,  sweet echo of a distant fountain. Exquisite strains of tho "Beautiful Blue  Danube" were borne lo my ears, and,  although I had been buffering keenly  from a nervous headache, I was being  lulled to sleep by tho soothing eflect ���������  of the perfect whole, when I was suddenly roused irom my blissful, half unconscious state by a violent commotion  beneath  my   window.  The reaction was so violent as almost to warrant my fear that a comet  had come in contact with the earth,  or that a thunderbolt had fallen info  our midst. To my dismay, however,  I found that we were lo be indulged  by a very prosaic concert given by all  of the feline-tribo from far and near.  As the babel of voices grew more loud  and mote confused, some curious coincident recalled to my mind the trial  scene In the Merchant ol" Venice, and  tho belief of the philosopher of Samos. ���������  I fell to musing on the feasibility of  his theory; and," as my thoughts shaped themselves to the reality and I connected the Pathagorian belief with  the performers below, I soon had the  Venetian court with many modern ac-  comx>animenta  The chains with which my headache  had bound me, were fast breaking as  the picture grew in my imagination,  ���������and as 1 gave to the owners of the different voices the names of Iheir Venetian ancestors. One deep-voiced animal, by the concentrated fury and  hatred he expressed, recalled the Jew >  so ' distinctly, that without hesitation.  I dubbed him Skylock. Another voice  betokened him of a proud and dignified, but rather weak, nature; conse-  sequently he received the title of  Duke. Tho patient, long, sutfering  toned onew as certainly Antonio's de-'  scendanlp; while the merry, happy  hearted one who wanted a voice in  everything, but seldom said anything  worth hearing, appeared lo be a close  connection of Gratiano's.  In the first part of the scene, (he  deep voice,, the patient voice, and tho  weakly-proud voice, svere heard alternately. The Bassanio , cat and tho  Skylock cat snarled and spat at each  other iu a very unbecoming manner,  then'the deep voice seemed to be gaining the advantage, bul. lia.s&nnio's representee was hopofuf, and kept  cheering him of the patient tone,  while this latter worthy drawled oi;L  in Lhe most melancholy notes, what I  imagined to be:  "You cannoL better be empl'jvd,  Bassanio, than to live si ill. and wriLe  mine epitaph."  At  this stage  in   the   proceedings a  cricket was heard ti chirp for ac'iuil-  tancc, and, while the partakers in  Iho  play    were  listening   respectfully    to  what the new comer had to say. 1 congratulated mysi-lf on the, devek pnii-nt  of the act.     Soon another cricket appeared,  whereupon   the  Duke  on    his  dignified  voice    made  a short   speech,  which  1 interpreted   as   being   an   address to the newly-arrived one, "Come  you from old Bellario ?"      'ibis belief  was confirmed as the reed-voiced cricket answered in high, rhrill iictrs, aud  laid special stress on the second word,  "I  did,  my  lord."       A  few    moments  having  elapsed,   tho   proud   voice   was  again-heard, and in almost human accents the sonorous  tones of  the'   Duke  commanded, "Antonio and old Skylock,  both  stand forth,"     Quite  a   commotion ensued, and  then,  as the  sudden  lull bespoke a listening posture. J, loo.  leant   my    ear,   and   hoard  again   Iho  famous    mercy  speech.        The!     deep-  voiced accuser seemed   to  respect  and  admire  this wise  young   judge,  as    1  could gather from  the full, prolonged  notes tiiat reached my ear:  "A Daniel come  to judgment I  Yea,  a Daniel I"  Then the. patient voice became si ill  more patient; the. liassnnio cat, more  entreating; he of the rood-voice, more  decided; (ho deep voice more exultinjr.  Thou thu reed-voicu wearied, the inciry  tone, exulted, the deep voice became' ���������  first alarmed, and 'afterwards dejected, and I was reminded of the Words  used by the Jew in, the days dong since  gone by,, "lam riot' well."-Gratiano's  supposed descendant grew tantalizing iind unbearable to tho miser's .representative, who was beginning ,to  grow "aweary of Ibis great '-'wovld."  ���������The'chorus of .cat cheers that reached  my cars from lime, to time, 1 attributed  to approval' of the cricket, while, (lie.  not unfrequent busses. I supposed were  intended  for  the  "cuiplhroat  dop."  At this instant tho window of (he  room adjoining'mine was thrown viol-'  ontly open, and my .irate'.student-brother,, appeared, bearing in hisr hand  his faithful ink well, which hi! .shied  with much force into the midst of Iho  assembly, thereby, in the Duke's stead,  dismissing Iho court. As Ihe window  closed with a bang, a groan was  heard <to issue from' shylock's latter self, which had probably been hurt.  nothing, more being beard of him. and  as 1he cats-scampered, off, .1 concluded that lhe Shyloc.k cat, true lo its  ture,   in  proud  silence,   was  hur  na-  "yin'ff.

JAPANESE AND CHINESE LABOR.  Our provincial legislature, at its last  session, passed an Act debarring Japanese, Chinese,' etc. from  working in  mines  underground,   and  an   Ottawa  report says that Japan  is using its influence with  tlie   mother country   to'  have  the Act disallowed by  the Canadian government.     Tho Laurier  administration has until April   next to  decide,   and   report   bus   it   that   the  probabilities  are tho Act will be disallowed.   The same report  has it that  the Act was passed at  the instigation  of a few speculators  only.    We warn  the Laurier government to move slowly in this matter���������in short to leave the  Act severely alone.   It was not passed  in the interest of speculators,  but in  the interest of the entire labor element  of the country.   It is well known that  Japs and Chinamen live on what would  not keep soul  and  body  together  in  any white man.   They can,  therefore;;  take less  wages   than would  keep ga  white   man   respectably   alive,     and  make money.   Encouraging their employment'  means   so  crippling white  labor in all lines as to drive it out of  tho country��������� <i circumstance  that no  friend of the country !can,'even countenance or tolerate.   Wo trust that the  Sandon Miners' Union will make themselves felt in :<all matters of this kind,  and in  this way deserve the country's  gratitude.   Thoy should '^petition par-  liamenl, when it meets, in the interest  of labor, and see  when elections come  around  thatjtheir influence is felt in  contests   in  the interests of labor   in  the conn try.  ment assembled. He assumes that  governments are all powerful and can  rescind statutes by orders-in-council,  andmake amending laws between ses  sions. If thoy have these powers  where are the necessities for parliament? It is time enough to blame tho  Semlin party for violation of pre-election pledges, -when they have held sessions of parliament ami fail to redeem  promises.  McGuigan Items.  Tbe Winnipeg Free Press says  that  an  incrca.se of ������2,000,000 in  the revenue for the   last two months is glorious.   The Liberals know a  thing  or  two about running a country.   They  also know a  thing or two  about trickery.   Revenue is  the   result  of taxation���������every  dollar coming in revenue  is a dollar out of   the pockets of the  people in taxation.   Jn opposition the  Liberals cried "Down with  taxation ;  let us have Free Trade as they have it  in England" ; now it is an incroase in  taxation, and rejoicing of the  Liberal  press that it is so.  r An enjoyable dance was given by Mr.  James .Brown, propiietor of the McGuigan house,Wednesday evening, the  special train from Kaslo being crowded  with Kaslo and Whitewater boys, also  bringing quite a number from Sandon.  Many old friends met, and in spite of  the lew ladies that attended, dancing  was kept up until 3.30 a m., when the  engineer reminded the revelleis that  the. hour for parting had arrived.

DEAL CALLED OFF.  London   Capitalists   Fight   Shy   of   the  Golden   Cache District���������A  Black  Eye.  i    When  Mr. NeilJ, a member  of  Provincial Legisl.-tuiv! supporting  Government. ivsigncJ because he 1  unwittingly violated the l-.ivr.  one  of  tho Coast'new<i)ip"rs it.-JhcvI him  for his integrity ;  lhe oMi������r abused  him for malfeasance. Another member, Mr. Robertson, who is on the other  side of the political fence, has recently  resigned for a precisely similar reason  to that in Mr. Neill's case; and the  newspapers that praised Mr. Ncill are  throwing dirt at Mr. Robertson, while  those that abused bim are commending the other. There may be nothing  wrong in the path of the party paper ;  but it is often ludicrous, and sometimes even contemptible.  The foregoing is from the Nelson  Miner, and to which we say, Amen.  Any journalist that supports in a  friend what it condemns in an opponent is a disgrace to tho profession, ff  politicians could not get the press this  way, they would soon cure themselves  of many of their questionable habit*.  "The Colclen Cache' affairs have already given more than one black eye  to mining deals in British Columbia,"  said a well-known mine operator tu a  Province man. "A friend of mine Iind  the boil of pru-pects of putting  through a good deal in London ,1'or a  number ol excellent, properties up the  iin-i.

A cablegram came back telling him not to bother, that anything  in the same district as the Golden  Unche would not go. It is a black-eye  of tho worst kind.

We notice that   J.

If Mr. Hume  thinks lie  can make satisfactory laws  as the result of such enquiries, he  i.s  sadly  mistaken.     In   the   liral place  coming in contact, with but one or two  classes of people, government officials  are but poorly titled to give informa-  1 tion 011:1 matter ol\,th'is  kind.   Who  the "others" are, it ss hard lo tell.   As  The Review   has- said   over and over  again, it is only by consulting a joint  'committee of representative practical  miners, prospectors,   property holders  and capitalists that suitable laws can  bo crystalized.   When-.the experience  and  convictions of. all these are modeled into enactments,   wo  are pretty  certain'to have satisfactory legislation.  We hope the Miners' Union of Sandon  will take a hand  in this  matter, and  give Mr. Hume   their opinions as to  changes' that should be made, and new  measures   that should  be adopted in  :the interest of the country.  /^Skfe*.  /rv,,,    ���������   When    Lady  E?-<3!S������raiS\/^M������-     Mane     Wortlcy  W&ESrWS&Z   Montagu,, visited  *$&&&  S^S?-������^r ^Ule household of  W^^P^-Vlhe SnUa"' shc  ^Lr^'Mll^ & wrote home to  *-.. -v   *-..,,.������,...,,.    1    ,-.

P  ft  I  I  ttr  I  READABLE  PARAGRAPHS  From the   Mining  and   Scientific Press.  The deepest vertical shaft in Montana is the Green Mountain at Butte,  ft is 2,100 deep, and ia being driven  still deeper.  At Hiiiley, Idaho, local mining men  estimate thai, J. L. Packard, in developing the Tip Top mine, will have  .���������spent .^00,000 beforo gelling any returns. .  Old miners say that it is practically  impossible to projpect in the Yukon  region (luring May and June, owing to  the bwarms of mosquitoes that harass  one dav and night.-  Winter nosts, thirty miles apart,  have been eslab ishod by the mounted  police from Luke Bennct to Dawson,  N.W.T. Dog trains will travel between  them and carry mail.  The largest, tin mine .in the world is  situated on Sulo Brani, an island in  tbe bay of Singapore. It turns ont  .monthlv 1,200 tons of tin���������more than  the product of Cornwall and more  than that ot Australia. Tnc ore comes  from Selangor and Per.dc in Melaeca.  The Denver, Colo., Republican says  that the mixture for preventing fumes  in mining powder, which has been  patented by R. Crowe, of Georgetown,  ,Colo.. consists of 50 per cent, unbolted  wheat flour, 25 per cent, common salt  finely ground, and 25 per con I. pulverized bicarbonate, of soda.  The amount of dividends paid incorporated mining companies in the  "United States and British Columbia  for the lirst ten months of '9S is ������17,-  685,150, which probably represents  about one-third of the total amount ol  dividends foi mining properties in  those countries for that time.  It is the opinion of borne who havo  studied the. subject practically that,  tlie idea, generally accepted, that because, an ore deposit, has been lormed  on what may be called a "true fissure-  vein" it necessarily has an indefinite  extension in depth, is in tho nature of  a fallacy, and that the extension m  depth of ore in a fissure is as likely to  terminate within a .measurable, dis-'  tance as the extent of ore deposition  on what arc generally" called "blanket  deposits."  Copper mines which a few years ago  were practically abandoned as being  too poor andWpcnsive to operate at ti  profit, are now yielding good returns  " to their owners '.Instead of operating  on a small scale with the rich ore  streaks in a vein, .it is, now found  much more profitable to, work, the  whole vein,  notwithstanding the fact  ���������^urxttrrTKV w^ - ���������& -v .,.*���������"- -^-ry��������� i  'In connection-with the recent disastrous ending' of the company that  established works in.Maine lor obtaining from tbe ocearc tbe gold contained  in its salts, a statement, appears in the  Mining Press;' of.

The  quantity 'of gold  and  silver ���������'actually contained   in   the   ocean water  and the  possibility of   profitably  extracting them has long been under discussion.      Mulagtiti-and   Durooher's  well-known   experiments   resulted  in  the discovery of silver in water, but no  note is  made of any gold.   Later, in  1872, Sonsladt discovered gold in sea  water,  and   though   not   stating   the  exact amount found,  he reported it to  be  lcs& than one grain  to the  ton  of  water.   In a paper read before tbe New  South  Wales Royal Society   on   tins  subject Prof. Liversidgc estimates the  sea water of the coast in tint region to  contain a  very  small amount   to  the  ton, namch 0.5 grain.   .

LORD  Reply, to the Toast nt the loril Mayor's  Banquet���������Triumph of the British Anus  In lhe Somliiii.  lAt tha recent Lord Mayor's Banquet in London, England, Lord Kit-  ohener replied to the toast in his  favour, speaking as follows:���������  "My Lord Mayor,'your Royal Highnesses, my Lord and gentlemen:���������ib is  not easy for me to find words to ox-  press the gratitude I foel at the inan-  nor in which the toast proposed by Lord  Salisbury has been received by this  magnificent audienco, nor for tho kind  and too flattering terras in which ho  _���������kas alluded to myself. I know full  well that it is not in my individual  oapaoity, but as the representative of  the Anglo-Egyptian army, that this  honour has been done me to-night. It  is to the devoted services of that army  in tho Soudan that the success of tho  campaign was duo. Any general who  failed to lead suoh men as I had tho  honour to command to victory would  have beon incapable indeed.  i SOLDIER-LIKE SPIRIT.  Tho endurance and soldierlike spirit  with which they bore tho. long delay  under tho Soudan 'sun which was necessary between the battle of Atbara  and tho advance on Omdurman wore as  great a test of tho diciplinc and efficiency of the army as tho endurance  exhibited during the long marches or  tho courage they showed at the  Ironohes of Atbara or on tho plains  of Omdurman. A man may well be  proud who is plaoed in a position to  command troops capable of such deeds  as these.  I allude not only to tho British  army, but to tho Egyplain army as  well; and, proud as I well may bo of  having commanded the British army  in the Soudan, I am no less proud that,  as Sirdar, I was able to lead tho Egyptian and Soudanese troops to victory  side by side with, men of my own race  and  blood. Cheers.  It is in the namo of those of the  combined, forcos that aro absent, as  well as of those who aro present, that  1 beg to thank you for the great hon-  been contended that the material of  our you have done us to-night. It has  wh.ch the Egypti.au army was formed���������  from which it was recruited���������was not  capable of producing good s-oldiers. We  in the Egyptian army did not agreo  wiLh that view.- We had confidence in  our men, and that confidence has been  justified. We tested them at Gemei-  seh, Tokar. Toski, Firket and Abu  Hamed, and we never found ourselves  disappointed. Renewed cheers.  I think, under tho circumstances, tho  best critics were the dervishes ��������� the  best, perhaps, that   over    valued    tho  fighting, capacities of the Egyptian sol-l  dier,  and  when we were allowed     to  ing- stock. . I do not think ������3,000 a  mile is too high a price. That gives  a sum of two and a quarter millions  out ot the money expended, and for  the other quarter of a million we have  2,000 miles of telegraph lino, six new  and superior gunboats, besides sailing  craft, and ��������� the Soudan. Laughter.,  Wo had very many charges for warlike material aud supplies, the transport of our long linos of communications, including sea transport of British troops from England and elsewhere to meet.  But however it was done the result  is the same. We havo relieved those  vast territories from the tyranny  under which they suffered. Cheers.  Tho British and Egyptian flags fly at  Khartoum, never again, I hope, to bo  hauled down. . ���������  - -��������� HE "GETS AN "OVATION.  During a visit to the Gaiety Theatre  tho other evening Lord Kitchener was  the recipient of an oration, from the  crowded audience. Strangely enough,  his Lordship was not recognized till  Miss Grace Palotta was singing the  "Khartoum" verse in tho topical  song, "Soldiers in tho Park." when  the audience rose to their feet and  enlhu iaslioally cheered the hero, Lord  Kitchener acknowledged the demonstration by coining forward and bowing. ;   .  iAn amusing incident, which was apparently unnoticed by very many present, occurred at the Waverley station, Edinburgh, as the Sirdar was on  tho point of. resuming his journey  eouth after his visit to Balmoral. The  distinguished soldier had shaken hands  toNMNMiimYMtNNMi iMMMMMMMl  'wtmwwttfrAwmfftwffiMFff}  GOOD TEETH PREVENT LAMENESS.  Some years ago a test was made by  an express company, who had 000  horses in constant use, twenty-five of  which were indiscriminately selected  for proper dental treatment, and separately weighed. Their aits and maize  were reduced two quarts per day each.  After the first month a great improvement in (heir general condition was apparent, continuing during the second  and third months, when they wore  again weighed, and it was found that  an average ��������� increase ot forty-oight  pounds per head was the result. The  test lasted during the hot months of  July August and Soptember when  flatulent colic was very apparent in  the stablo, yet not ono single case had  occurred among these twenty-five  horse! Since this trial and whenever  a carload of newly purchased young  horses arrives, it is considered awasto  to feed' them until their teeth aro  examined and  put in proper shape.  As u preventive for lameness, to  commence operations on lhe teeth'  would appear to some very ludicrous,  yol common sense and practice would  convince   them that this would be'tho  meat or liver, any cheap meat will  answer, and it will be found superior  to anything that can be ueed. Groen  bone that contains a large, proportion  of loan meat is even better, provided the fat portions are removed from  the bone. It will be found cheaper  than grain because it will mako eggs.  One reason why hens sometimes fail  to lay when they havo plenty of grain  is that they, require a change, and  meat contains-' the material for supplying the albumen of tho eggs, and  is therefore a, substance that the hens  must, havo or they cannot perform service. If the hens are fat give ono  ounce of lean meat each day, allowing  no other food, for a week or two.  f%^^^^*a>������^r-.  -4W<0/&&  with the Lord Provost, with whom he   proper  means  of  preventing  inlerfor-  had been in conversation, and re-entered his carriage, having ignored the  attentions of a newsboy who was offering to sell him a volume bound in  light bluer cloth.  Tho urchin was not lo be got rid. of  in that way, however. Ho raised himself to the full height of his'diminutive  6tature, and with tho upper edge of  the book tapped th������ Sirdar on the lowest button of his waistcoat. Such business enterprise could no longor be.  ignored. Interrupted in his conversation, Lord Kitchener glanced down at  the outer cover of the book, read the  tillo, and, with an amused smile, _ resumed his seat in tho railway carriage.  Wh-it ho read was "With Kitchener  to Khartoum,   i  >    :    I  SOME PRINCELY INCOMES.  J.lg  Salaries   Paid   to   Hie    l.rlllxli   Ilny������  lamllv.  JWhen the Duke Of Edinburgh attained his majority in 186G ho was allowed ������15,000 a year, increased to ������25,-  000 on his marriagei in 1874, when ������5,-  583 was granted to defray the expenses  of his marriage. A further sum of ������3,-  500 was voted when ho visited Australia. Tho Indian Government bore the  expenses of his, Indian visit. These  amounted to ������10,000. (His wife, daugh  ter of the lato Emperor of Russia,  brought as hor marriage portion ������300,-  000 and an annuity of ������11,250, which  reverts to the children on her death.  The Duke of Edinburgh, before he  succeeded to the duchy of Saxe-Coburg,  worth ������30 COO a year, besides, it is said,  over ������100 000 in ready money, enjoyed  an allowance of ������1,800 a year from hi:  ence, one of the chief causes of lameness in young horses.  Young horses fully developed show  signs of fatigue and weakness after  a journey, and interfere. Some grab  tho quarter of the fore foot with tho  too of the hind foot, or overreach.  In such cases the ordinary practitioner would treat locally, possibly advise different shoes, order tonic balls  or conuiCron powders, and a few days'  rest, the latter would benefit mostly  and   give   temporary   relief.  Now supposing there were irregularities of tho teeth, as is usual with all  young horses, the first treatment  should be td put them in perfect order, so as to promote mastication and  good digestion, to enable proper assimilation of the nutritive qualities of the  food, and thero ensure increased  strength and condition, thus removing tho original cause of the weakness.  It may seem equally absurd to some  of our readers to assert that operating  on tho teeth will prevent pulling and  other vices, but that it is not so. is  proved by the following incident: A  pony that wo treated had changed  owners for no other cause than that  none of them had been able to drive  him with eatse, although various bits  .md contrivances had been tried. Tho  primary cause must first be discovered,  which in this instance was a decayed  tooth, lhe removal of which affected  an instantaneous cure. The pony is now  driven in a plain straight bit without  aijUi ahain' by Llle Present owner, an  elderly gentleman who appreciates the  immal's quietness and docility so much  that no amount of money could part  them.  PIG  PORK.  lAmong the many radical, changes in  farm   management   during  ' tho  ' last  quarter  of a century  there    are  few  that havo brought the .farmer greater  profit than that of, marketing pigs at  six  or  seven  months  old,   instead   of  keeping (horn three limes as long. The  best market demand at present is for  good, fat pigs, and they command tho  highest price.   It has been demonstrated over and over again, that the cost  per pound increases wilh  tbo ago  of  tho  pig,   and  so  it  is   in   the   line   of  economy   to   push   the   pigs  from   the  start  and  sell early.   I have no  data  to determine exactly what tho saving  is, but I venture the assertion that a  ton of pork can. bo made from pigs six  to seven months old, for one-third less  money  than  from mature hogs,  says  Waldo Fv Brown, Probably tho best reason I can give for this is that in adding ono hundred pounds to tho weight  of  a pig after  it  reaches 200  pounds,  you must furnish food for support to  repair   the -waste  of   the  200   pounds,  while adding tho extra weight. Again,  th������ gain in the first place is made up  of growth as well as fat to a    much  greater  extent  than when hogs near  maturity are fed.   The risk of loss from  disease is reduced at least in proportion to Iho shortest time the hogs' are  fed, and I believe even more than this,  for I find it easier to keep young growing hogs thrifty than those of mature  ago.   There is also a saving  in labor,  for every farmer knows that there is  a large amount of hard work in feeding  hogs  that  must    bo  attended   to  every ' day,  and   it   is much  easier ' to  feed  200  days  than   400.  k I he Home  m  - -   undo,  the   late Duke.   The acceptance  chango our role from the defensive to  of these fresh responsibilities has corn-  that  that  tho  tho offensive  they soon learned  respect  for tho Egyptian tioops  every  good soldier    engenders in  minds of his adversaries.  IT WAS HARD WORK  I had to give the Egyptian army  very arduous and hard work. They  had to construct the railways they had  to haul the gunboats and sailing craft  over the dangeious cataracts, they  were incessantly on fat gue duty, moving stores and cutting wood for tho  steamers, and I think it may be fairly  said that theBiitiohtroop3 could never j  havo reached Omdurman without  greater loss.of life had it not been for  the services of tho Egyptian army.

The man who owns the cow is the  one who makes the milk. He can make  tittle or much of it, he can mako it  clean or dirty, cheap or expensive, in  fact, he can vary the milk to suit himself. The cow is only a complicated  ipparatus, in which ho burns his various fodders, and out of which he obtains his finished product in the shape  ol milk. Like all other machines, the  cow is subject to the laws of thermodynamics. She must uso a certain amount of her fodder to,keep tho vital  machinery in motion. This includes tho  keeping of the animal heat at the right  point, tho circulation of the blood the  digestion of food, the elaboration of  milk and all the other vital actions  which go to make up tho life of the  animal.  Experiments have shown that it requires sixteen pounds of dry organic matter to keep this machinery in  motion, that ie to keep the animal alive  .<nd in health. From the rest of the  tood given above that weight, the  dairyman may' expect greater or less  returns in the form of mi.k. Here comes  ihe first point. Now, how much fodder  does it take; to keep that cow ? Sixteen iiounds or twenty pounds r There  is a wide margin here���������all the difference between profit and loss. Ask the  cow and sob what she says, if she is  Using twice as much fodder as, she  ought to, to keep her machine in motion, then she is not a profitable am-'  ma'J. If she cannot use the excess of  feed given her over the maintenance  ration, to produce a profitable amount  of butter fat; she is not, worth keeping and should be disposed of as soon  as possible.'', ������������������..'-,  No dairyman can afford, under present conditions, or even under any conditions, to keep animals that oat food  that thoy canrlot return a greater  value for in the milk pail. If he does  keep such animals, his progress down  the financial hill is neither slow nor  comfortable. His life is one long struggle against conditions that he might  change if he only would: There are  many roads that lead to loss' of profit on the farm, but the broadest,  smoothest road with the'steepest downward pitch is the one traveled by the  unprofitable cow.  THE  BEST  FOOD  FOR  EGGS.  The best food for making hens lay is  lean meat.   When the supply of eggs  fails stop all other foods and feed lean  BROAD TIRES. ' ' '  The tests thus far made have shown  in tlie main that the draught is less  when wide tires are used, yot these results have not been accepted as conclusive and final by the public, and  there yot remains in the minds of  many intelligent farmers and teamsters a well defined and positive conviction that'the wide tire will draw  very much heavier over roads in what  may be termed average condition, and  that in mud tboy will draw so much  heavier as to positively preclude their  use. Clearly, all efforts to induce the  farmers and teamsters to adopt the  broad tires must be futile so long as  (,'here is any question as to tho relative draught of tho two classes of  wheels on roads in the different conditions.  Averaging all the trials on pasture  lands, it was found that a team could  haul a ton and a half on the broad  tires with the same effort required to  draw a ton on the narrow tires.        '  In nearly all conditions of meadows  and pastures the broad ��������� tire benefited  the surface, rather than injured it.  In no case ca'n a ton load be hauled on  tho ordinary narrow tire ove such a  surface  without  injuring the  sod.  Tho tests on stubble land, including  corn and stubble in every condition,  from muddy lo dry enough to plow,  were also uniformly favorable to the  broad tire. , (  Averaging all the results, it is found  t hat 3,000 pounds could bo hauled with  required to haul 2,000 pounds, with the  the broad tires with the same effort  narrow  tires. , /  On plowed ground, both thoroughly  plowed and harrowed and ready for  seeding, the results are strikingly favorable to the-broad'tire, and asaving  of about one-third of the draught was  offected by using the six-inch tires.  x .     ,    POINTERS ON SHOES.  In speaking of shoos the following  "nevors, "by Dr. Samuel Appleton, may  be of interest:  First. Never wear a shoe that will  not 'allow tho groat too to lio in a  straight lino.  Second. Novor wear a shoe wilh a  solo narrower than tho outline of the  foot, traced with a pencil close under  tho rounding odge.  Third. Never wear a shoo that pinch'  es the heel.  Fourth. Never woar a Bhoe or boot  so .-large in tho heel that tho foot is  not kept in place.  Fifth. Nevor wear a shoe or boot  tight ans'where.  Sixth. Never wear a shoe or boot  that has depressions in any part of the  sole to drop any joint ov bearing bo-  low the level plane. '  Seventh. Never wear a shoe with a  sole turning up very much at the toes,  as this causes the cords on the upper  pari of the fo'bt to contract.  Eighth.- Never wear a shoo that  presses up into the hollow of the foot.  Ninth. Never have the top of the  boots tight, as it interferescwith the  action of the calf muscles, makes one  walk badly and spoils the shape of tho|  ankle. x j  Tenth. Never come from high heels!  to low heels at one jump. .'  Eleventh. Nover wear one pair of,  shoos all the time, unless obliged to doi  so. Two pairs of boots worn a day at(  a time alternately give moro service'  and are much more healthful.  . Twelfth. Nevor woar leather sole  linings, to stand upon. White cotton  drilling or linen is much hotter and  more' healthful.  Thirteenth,    Nover   wear   a    short  stocking or one    which   after    being ...  washed is not at least. one-half    inch^  longor than  tbo foot4     Boar in mind f  that stockings shrink,   v Be sure that  they will allow your toes to spread out  at the extreme ends, as this keeps   tho  joints in place and makes a strong and  attractive foot.   As to shape of stockings,    the single    digital or "one toe  stocking" is tho best.  Fourteenth. Never think that tha  feet will grow largo from wearing  propoi- shoes. Pinching and distorting  makes them grow not only large, but  unsightly. A proper natural uso of all  tho muscles makes them compact and  attractive. .   -  FRIGHTEN WOLVES. .

In every household the stockings that  require1 mending accumulate very fast.  A stocking- bag in which to keep all  those that need attention is a very  useful thing for every housewife to'  have and from an exchange we take  following description of such a bag  that is very easily made:  Take a yard of pretty cretonne, with  a small figure; three yards of satin ribbon an inch wide, to match the cretonne in color, a small pieco of white  flannel, some stiff pasteboard and a  spool of silk. Cut four circular pieces  of I ho pasteboard, each one seven inches in diameter. You may cut them out  by a large saucer or a bread and butter  plate. Cover these pieces smoothly with  cretonne and overhand them two together, as if for a pocket pincushion,  with  the sewing siik.  Tho puff should be a straight piece  of cretonne six inches iong and twelve  inches wide. Turn in the edges on the  aides of this strip and gather to fit the  circular pieces, to which the strip must  be neatly overhauled. Leave the ends  open for the rnouLh of your bag, which  is a fuilrutf.with a cucuiardisklin ihe  center of each bide. Mako for the outline of ono of those disks a piece of  the same size and shape. (Jut from thu  flannoi several leaves of the same  shape, but smaller by an inch in diameter, buttonhole stitch the edge of  each leaf with sewing silk and fasten  them to tho circle on the bag. They  are to form a.needle book for darning  needles.'        '      .' >���������������������������.-  Fasten the embroidered cover over  this and sow a bow of ribbon where it  is fastened. ���������  On the opposite side of the'bag a  pieco of cretonne is sot for a pocket-  book, galhured at the top by. an elastic  run in a casing, and'at tho bottom by  two shirrings. This pocket is to hold  darning cotton. Hern tha ends of the  puff for a casing and run two pieces  of ribbon in for strings to draw the  bag up. The interior is the receptacle  for the stockings.   ���������  ���������  YOUNG SWIMMERS. .-,'."���������,  Tho Sandwioh Islanders are so fond  of the sea that they actually teach  their children to swim long before they  are able to walk.
