Tlie  Investigation   Opened  ���������   Commissioner Ciute.  Before  Mr. Chile, commissioner, appointed  by the Dominion government to en-  , quire into thr> citises of the trouble  between tho mine owners and miners,  arrived in town on Tuesday, and opened his inveetigiitioii in tho Miners'  Union hall that evening. After reading his commission, which is very  wide, admitting of a full consideration  of all matters and things bearing on  the Hiibjt'ct, ho began his task by  examining Angus McDonald, under  oath. -   '  The questions dealt with the condition of things���������the length of shifts,  wages paid, etc.���������before tlie adoption  of the eight-hour law.  Mr. McDonald said he believed that  from 500 to COO mini were dispossessed  of their positions by the stoppage of  work fit the mines; but could not tell  how many of them wore British subjects or hud families. lie was not as  positive on these mutters as Mr. Hagler  was when he sent that celebrated telegram to Mr. Laurier.  Mr. Clute next wanted to know how  the operation of the law affected the  results to the owners, or how much  they lost by the change from 10 to 8-  hour shifts. Mr. McDonald believed  meu would do as much in 8 as they  had been doing in 10, but he had no  practical proof of it; and, judging from  appearances, Mr. Glutc thinks this is  important.  Mr. McDonald next, by request, told  what he knew of the effort to'biing in  alien miners; but could not proovo  that any Americans had been brought  in, when Mr. Clute explained that the  Canadian alien law only applied to  those countries that had similar laws  against, Canada, .which,   so. Im- us  work in'thf camp at once. Ho said  that this Slocan trouble would effect  tho mining stocks in other Rcctinns of  the country on tho London market,  and by which four or five million dollars was kept out of the country. Ho  could seo no reason why the mine owners and miners could not come to a  settlement. Two men came from  Seattle, and were hired to work, but  were taliced to by union men and thev  quit work. Some, miners can do ;is  much in S hours as was done in 10, because the work was all gauged by poor  workmen, and when the latter were  sacked they got work on some other  property, because there was always a  shortage of men. Men' were advertised  for at the offered nit<\s. If the clutv  was removed off lead productions there  would be more mines opened and men  hired accordingly,  These and other evidences wero  taken, when at the request of Mr.  Clute, .four delegates were appointed  from each of the contending parties to  hold a private conference with him on  Wednesday evening, when he offered  to do all in hi������ power to help settle the  trouble. It is quite apparent to all who  attended any of the meetings that, Mr.  Clute knows his business and that,  though he probs to the bottom of the  canker.^ho does it with an impartial  hand iifordor that justice to all may  be fully done. /  Continuing the investigation on  Thursday.���������J. J. McNaughton, who  was working at the Whitewiitcr mine,  stated that on June 1st last the miners  were given notice that the mine managers offered to pay 53 for eight hours  work and the men stopped work. lie  said that everything was satisfactory  to both parties before the trouble took'  place, and all quit work peaceably.  The miners' union never met the mine  owners, as the men wanted the old  scale of wages. His opinion is that  good men can nearly do as much in  S hours us in 10; but in some mines  time was lost by smoke in the tunnels.  At 7 a.m. some of the mon would be  inside and some at the mouth of the  tunnel_ to commence work drilling;  but with three shifts each man commencing work would be ready to take  his   place from   those   quitting.    No  there would not be half enough Hrilish  subjects to go to work. He believed a  miner can do as much work in S hours  as in JO if he worked hard enough, hut  if tunnels wero in bad condition the  same work cannot be done. 53.50 was  us'high as the highest p.v'd in iho  United States for 10 hours, and "?3.('0  in the c.iso of 8 hours; of course, in wet  places extra pay is given, iu diflorent  states are differentl ower wages. As few  drillers have the mechanical ability,  and wioh responsibility, were entitled  to $3.50 for S hours, to run machines.  A. AV*. Wright, manager of the Ajax,  gave the same information as, Mr.  Wood regarding hiring men at  Seattle. By the mines closing down,  he offered the mine owners" standard of  wages und could not secure men, he  then undertook contract work, which  means increasing the expanses of labor  25 per cent. Investments have been  kept out, and the merchants are complaining about dull business.  Mr. Perry, manager oi'the, Noble  Five, stated the shut-down lfTis- caused  more loss to this mine than any other,  because machines are being used,  which moans a great deal less wor'<  done by two shoter hours. A telegram  that 1000 men, British subjects, with  wives and families, addressed to  Premier Laurier, giving him to understand that a couple of mine owners  were importing aliens to take the  places of the 1000 men mentioned.  Payne stock, when at 50 cents a share  would mean a loss of about a million  ot dollars to the Canadian owners, if  the value ot" the shares remained so.  Tno government should be asked to  reduce the import duty on lead ores,and  if no duty, there would be a saving of  ���������:>18 a ton ou some lower grade ores.  PRESENTATIONS.  Rev.  and Mrs. Cleland and Jack Kindly  Remembered by Their Friends.  INES  AKQ MINING.  The Situation.  knew, was limited" to the ijuueu States  Mr. McDonald gave his evidence in a  frank   open way.   and   certainly   told  nothing that he did not fully believe.  From what the public have got so for,  it is clear the  rebuttal testimony will  leave  tho case bo far   in favor of tho  owners, as they aro doubtless in u position to prove that it is the law that has  done the harm, originated through tho  efforts of  alien agitators,   and the reduction of shift means a loss of 20 per  '   cent   in   results   to them.    Mr. Clute  wanted to know if  the men had ever  made a   formal demand of the  wages  they 'wanted- under, the new law,   and  ''    Mr. McDonald was not in a position to  ��������� ���������'; say they had.   .'.-"'...-  George Alexander, of Kaslo, sworn-  Stated that: the miners on  the 1st of June,   as they wanted 5-3.50  ior eight hours work, while they were  ottered ������3.00.   Prior to this.time  both  parties were satisfied with the 10-hour  system.   Most of the' men   employed,  he .believed, .were   Americans.     The  mining companies offered 37* cents an  ��������� hour for the 8-hour day, while 35 cents  had been the rate lor the 10-hour day ;  they were willing, to continue  at 553.50  for tho old siiift. -.-, He stated that ������3.50  was   the.   highest, wages   paid   lor   10  hours,  except where tunnels were not  in a proper condition for work.   ������1.00  a day board  was charged by the mine  owners, the men providing their own  '.   blankets to sleep in.   He said the miners''were-uot. to blame tor trying to get  all the wages they could.   Tnis trouble  had stopped . large amounts of capital  irom coming into the country at large,  and the Slocan in particular.   If work,  was   again   commenced   3000   miners  could get work   in the   Kootenay,   of  which 1500 would be put to work   underground.  Carlton EL. Hand in the stand���������Said  that mining operations were stopped  on   account of tho passing of 8-iiour  law.   At that time there wore working  at the Pay no some 140 meu ou 10- hour  shifts, excepting Saturdays or  in wet  tunnels,   wlien shorter shifts   were allowed.   Both sides wore satisfied with  their work in  tho  Pay he mine,   lie  doubted it'  30 per cent, of the miners  were British subjects,   the remainder  being nearly all Americans.   Tne cur-  men, who really worked the hardest in  the mines, got but ij"3.00.a day.     The  highest wages, $3.50 paid to miuers for  10 hours, had beon paid here as well as  in some of the States, excepting where  under serious difficulties or conditions  in States he had been, i,-S4.00 had been  paid, or even higiier for very wet tunnels.   He uumitted that some minors  were laid off' in   the spring while the  tunnels were the wettest, out it was ii  time when miners would go prospecting and when  Noyernber came, they  would get work  in new workings.   It  this trouble was settled' 1000 could get  y\  alien labor  was brought in,   Lut pro-  '' ""-*"' '--*'     "'" 3 .'l?.l .-   --u  i-^.-p   li  vial/,    i'.'i a  friendly way. Tho shut-clown has hurt  all business, except the opening of  prospects, an which the men worked at  S3.50 instead l!" in the mines at ������3, as  there has been a shortage of mon for  some time. All the good miners of the  union expressed the opinion that they  cm Id do as much work in S hours as  used to be done in the 10, but no test  had been made. When asiced what  would be the result if they could not  do the same work in the shorter hours,  he "said he could not say. *  J. C. Ryan,   manager of the. Eureka  hune, stated that ������3.50  had been paid  for   10 hours  work   beforo the 1st of  June and everything could hot b'e'more.  suitable  to   both parties.     As   much  work was.never turned out in 4 hotirs  as in 5 if men worked faithfully.A good  miner in a s tope can do as much as he  used to do.   Beginners were always a  loss to him in his minei    He  his mine 14 first-class miners out of 30;  but it might be'different in.other properties.   A large flow  of  capital   this  way and   sales of prospects had been  slopped on account of tnis trouble. He  had   no   knowledge   of  aliens   being  brought   in, and  said   there   are not  enough miners here now it the  mines  should  open   up.     About 25  pur cent  of his men are British subjects and the  balance Americans'   He a<<iil tne miners here wore the most uiuciiig-jiit <uh!  honest he had met iu all his travel.  Mr. Smith, president of the miners'  union, said that the mines closed up  beeausothe mine owners offered 5*3.00,  the miners wanting "f-3 50, for 8 hours.  He did not know its. effects on business  and it stopped but little investment,  as to prospects, short of men, it gave  chance to open them tip. If the union  wages had been accepted everything  would have gone on satisfactory. If a  miner worked well he could do the work  in   8   hours. There    have     been  always enough   men  to meet --tho demand.   Two Italians were here on contract work, but no number   camo in,  and the union only took proper means  to keep them  out.   Foreign labor did  not cause   the real trouble.   On contract work men wero put work to keen  the mines   open'.     He   thought  that  1000 men, referred to in Hagler's telegram, as toBritish subjects, was correct.  F. A. Wood, manager   of   the   Last  Chance,   stated that the disagreement  arose over the   8-hour law,   tho   men  wanted the old wages   for  S  hours of  work,   which 'resulted  in   ali   mines  shutting down:  No aliens were brought  in to contract work;  two men camo ia  on   their   own   account,   through   an  Seattle employment agency, and  have  since gone away.   The effects ot shorter  hours nas eifected tho expenses  of the  production   of  outputs   about   25 per  cent, and as   a   result   few mines  are  shipping, i1 Capital, is kept   out   over  this difficulty.   If the   mines   started  It is quite likely that the owners will  make, what the public will consider, a  liberal offer to the miners at once, if it  is not already submitted, and what the  results will be remains,to be seen. From  the questions of Mr. Clnte, it is quite  apparent that he feels the on ners should  havo work corresponding .'^iirtheir pay-  "'"'old .order   of  lino witli  .ni'j'J  things,  which certainly  demands some  concessions from  the men.    We believe  it is the general wish of the owners that  resident miners should bo re-engaged as  far as possible.    It is  not our duty   to  toll either miners   or owners what   they  should tlo under the circumstances, as it  is purely a  business proposition on both  sides.    The men may refuse, out   of regard for those  now employed at $3.50;  but they   must   know that  that is not  permanent, and  the present offer of the  owners   may  not remain   open  for   all  time.   All we.have   to say is  that  we  hope sincerely mature judgement will  be employed, and that those who have  for months been crying,   "Get together  and settle," compromise, etc.,"  will now  use their,best'eftbrts to^eftect a settle-  lueri't,: in the'cOiUtnon -interest of the  country,  if it can be done on  an equitable basis ; but the men must not expect  all take and no give. .  From the explanations of Commis-  sionerClute, it must be clear to the men  that our Alien law excludes American  subjects only, and that the owners are at  liberty to bring in men of any other nationality from any where;    We also know  On Tuesday evening   Rev. and  Mrs.  Cleland had a   pleasant surprise.   On  returning   returning   from   a  friend's  house, where they had taken tea. they  were beseiged by fhe members of the  Ladies' Aid   witli their husbands, the  latter   each   carrying   some  delicacy.  But, as nsunl at tho Manse, they were  all cheerfully welcomed  and soon  enjoying social chat.    As such a gathering of church workers   on tho   eve of  the departure of their pastor and family, portended some-thing unusual thoy  soon  relieved   the tension   in a   very  practical way���������the rending of an   address, and the presentation to Mrs. Cleland of a handsome and costly lur capo  and   to   Master Jack of a  toque   arid  coat.   Though  overcome Mrs. Cleland  warmly thanked them   fer  their very  great kindness, but to. her husband fell  the Jot of trying to exproe's   their appreciation of tho many kindnesses and  ever ready sympathy shown them.  He  said   they  camo to   Sandon on   their  wedding trip and the two years among  them had been a continuation  of the  honeymoon.   'He concluded   by   eulogizing the Ladies' Aid,  not alone   fer  their   work   in   tho building   of   the  church, but for their assistance to Mrs.  Cleland,  who commenced her apprenticeship with them.  The address, which we give below,  was read in good style by Mrs. Isaac  Crawford.  Dear   Mus.   Glelan-d,���������After    two  years' sojourn among us, years that to  U3   all   "will   always   remain   in   our  thoughts   as pleasant memories, your  path of duty bids that the friendly ties  that have bound us together,   for that  length of time, must be severed. Wh'lo  we deeply  regret your departure,   and  while we know that, to us, your place  will bo hard to (ill;  yet we know that  such partings must take place among  all people, no matter how closely bound  together, and wc sincerely hope that  in_ this instance your absence may be  offset,   to a great"extent, by kindly rc-  nierolinnincf"'.  ���������'-AbH,,nt, but  not   For;  gotten"���������may that bo the motto of our  I little society.   h\ your new home (in  \ the   web-foot State)   always    hear   in  mind that you are not forgotten by the  many friends you leave behind you in  Sandon.    While we know that you appreciate our friendship and  affection,  more  than anything we can offer, yet  we ask you to accept from us a small  souvenir of our regard to further remember us by.   Take   .this (cape)  to  your new home, with our   best wishes  for your future prosperity, and that of  your   esteemed  husband.    May   God  prosper you. both, as you so richly de-  serye.   We also  tvish to remember, at  this time, the only native Sandpnite in  your family, Master Jack Cleland, and  we'ask you *o accept from us, as members of the Ladies' Aid of St. Andrew's  Presbyterian church, this   small offering   to  the   Junior  Preacher.     Once  more, to all the members of your family,   we  wish  health, happiness   and  prosperityin your J'uture Home.  In addition to the above, as a continuation of surprises, the K. of P's, at a  social gathering on Wednesday even-'  ing.igave some tokens of their esteem  is being driven  A 400-tnot cross-cut  on the California.  The Ajax Fraction have a carload of  ore ready for shipment.  Jackson mine at Whitewater shipped  GO tons ������f ore this week.

AVhat ia itt he poet says  about.  " "Two souls with but a single thought,  Two  hearts that  beat  one*"  Is not lhat tho poet's idea of marriage; However, perhaps all that  oomes afterward. In your case,  certainly, 1 trust so. One thing. 1  cannot lorgive him, and that is that he  Ib going to take you away from us all,  Into a new city, new. friends- nnd hew  associations."  "Ah, but I shall not forget the old,  Ella. Wait until I am quite- settled in  nay1 new homo, when I shall send for  you to become a veritable beholder,of  my  domestic happiness."  But long after her friend had1 left  hor' Isa sat buried in thought. Somehow the words sho had just heard jarred upon her ��������� jarred from their very  unison with her own thoughts. AVould  she be happy as John, Franklin's wife?  To him the realms of imagination,  whose gates were guarded by the sentinels of romance and sentiment,  peemed an unknown region. They  we're 'her. dwelling; place. Could she  lure him upward, or would he drag her  down?  "Well, little one, dreaming as usual,  ind all forgetful of", your engagement  to rido with. me. Absolutely, slippers  ^nd morning-grown! Ah!' 1 see, you  wish to test my Benedictine patience."  Somehow, a fresh, bright air from  the outside world appeared to enter  with the speaker. His clear, gray  eyes, sparkling with fun, .showed the  strong, earnest nature of tho man;  and, for a moment, as he bent almost  reverently to kiss the lips .upturned to  his, one read in their depths an -ilmost  worshipful devotion for the girl who, a  few brief minutes before, had declared  bim lacking in romance) or sentiment.  "Forgive me, John! 1 did not know if  rvas so late. Indeed, I will !bo ready  In a moment!" she contritely exclaimed. .  In spito of the fact that the moment ran into sixty seconds twenty  times told, her lover felt himself richly repaid for the waiting when she  at last returned, and stood ^before him  in her close-fitting riding-habit, showing to such advantage every line and  curve of the perfectly rounded figure,  and an arch smile au her trial of his  patience playing about her beautiful  lips.  The love in his heart rose, up in a  mighty wave us he looked at her. He  could have snatched her to his breast.,  have covered the lovely face with [.ass;-  io.nate kisses, have cried aloud in his  thanksgiving to God, that He hud given  him this woman's heart, in its exquisite  setting, for his own, his very own, to  guard, God helping him; his life long;  but she might not understand, he  thought.  How could she understand the  weight, and breadth, and depth of  such a love? So he only smiled, as he  held open the door for her to> pass but  to where the horses stood waiting,:  while he followed as reverently as in  jthe wake of a queen.  And yet it was this man whom she  had declared wanting in poetry of soul.  Ah! are not the waters of the ocoan  deeper, blue, clearer, where no eye  ever penetrates, unless that of the bold  diver, who would drag forth its innermost secrets? And can he put into -,fit-  ting words the wonders that he finds  there?  'Why was it that we never met ;be-  fore. Mrs. Franklin? Or, can we truly  say we have not met in thought < and  sentiment always? Surely we must not  measure our acquaintance by time?"  It1 was at a party, given in honor of  John  Franklin's three   months'   bride.  that Roseoe AA'iliis, the young poet,  wilh his handsome face and dreamy  eyes, was duly brought forward' ��������� and  presented us one of' tho "lions" of the  occasion.  And three weeks later, at her own  hom<>, in a morning call, with lhe wonderful dreamy eyes resting on her face,  he put to her the foregoing question.  From another .man siie might have  resented them. From him she regarded it us a poet's privilege. Besides, to  him sho could talk as heretofore she  hud never talked, not even lo the man  who for months, had had the right lo  share  her every  thought.  The very room in which sho sat 'evidenced hiti cure for her. Every appointment of hor home, was perfect iii  its luxuiiousuoss; no single wish was  left ungratified; aud yet she felt an  emptiness iu her life she dared not acknowledge to herself.  Before she had met Hoscoe Willis it  was wearing away. Somehow, her  husband's smile had pierced the mists  about her heart, and taught her that  his gentle tender watchfulness was  better than words, until she had found  a man from whose lips words flowed  as water bubbling from: tho mountain  spring.. Aud listening, as he asked,  "Why have we nevor met before?"  her soul echoed his question.  So it begun. She did not know" that  Hoscoe Willis' presence was growing  necessary to her as the weeks lengthened into months.  To her husband, his- homo was his  castle, to which all men respecting fhe  position of host and guest were .vel-  come. That there could be danger  lurking to his wdfo in this he never  dreamed. It never entered tbe honesty of the man's nature. That Isa  should be admired, was natural. To  him she was an exquisite flower, which  by borne strange caprice of nature hud  transplanted its roots into his heart.  But John Franklin had never revealed himself in words. lie loft it to another to whisper in her ear that which  brought crimson lo her cheeks as she  listened, but to which, worded as a poet  words, it seemed no wrong to John to  listen. As though the cruel rocks  would not pierce and mangle the  tender flesh as cruelly, even though  daisies and field-flowers hid their  edges���������aye, though you transplanted  there the hot-houso exotic!  "Why did we nevor meet before?"  At first tho question seemed to have  no hidden meaning, but there came a  time when it grow almost into a ' wail,  and when neither the man who asked  it, nor tho woman who heard, dared  put into words an answer.  "So few men understand the peculiar  needs of women, their high-strung,  natures, the chord which jars, or the  chord which strikes in unisou," he said  to hor one day. "Ah, mo! when 1 see  men possessing such peculiar privilege  and unmindful of it, their minds engrossed by baser themes, I almost  shudder at their blindness! You are  going to Mrs. Laurence's reception this  evening, of course?"  "Certainly, 1. shall!be there."  "And  I,    awaiting"    the    inspiration  which is at  once my passion and my  torment." ���������  With which words ho raised the  small white hand he held to his lips,  with an easy grace! then: bowed, and  left her.  John came home tired that night,  his head throbbing with a dull, heavy  pain���������came home to find awaiting him  a vision of beauty, dressed in black  velvet, above which rose the peerless,  gloaming shoulders, and the white  throat, on which the small head was  set so regally.  "I dressed early," she said, "that I  might  not keep you  waiting."  "Ah, it is Mrs. Laurence's reception night," h������ answered. "Would it  disappoint you very much if we did* not  go?"  The lovely face clouded, and the  man's watching eyes were quick to discern it. Before sho could reply, he  added:  "Perhaps I should say,. if you went  without me. Once there, you will  hardly miss me; and my head is; asserting its existence too painfully for me  to be other than a drag."  His flushed face, his eyes bright with  fever, attested the truth of his words.  His wife's first impulse was to snatch  off her dress, replace it by a dressing-  gown, and, darkening the room, minister  to his  needs.  But���������in those other rooms some one  was waiting for her. After all, it was  only a headache. John would-be better alone to sleep it off.  "Isa, remain with ino," his heart  said, as she bent to touch his burning brow with hor lips; but no word  escaped him, nor even the sigh which  rent his heart..  An hour later Mrs. Franklin entered  I Mrs. Laurence's drawing-rooms.      She  ; looked about for the man who was to  have been awaiting her, but could not  | see him.  I    She was not in. a mood for gayety to-  - night, ������nd so,  finding  a quiet retreat,  she    slipped into    a    window      recess  where she could watch lhe scene unobserved.     A'oices roused her.  "1 have not seen beautiful Mrs.  .Franklin to-nighl," said one.  ] "No, but she will be here," answered  the other, in a tone oC proud confidence, and hor heart beat fast and loud-  !er as sho recognized it. "What a ,pity  ; such women over marry!"  ! j'"Indeed! Do you not, believe in mar-  I riage?"  i      "J would not marry an angel. What!  lie  myself to  woman's needs, necessi-i  ' ties, and caprice? My dear fellow, poets  j soar in the clouds, it is true,-but they  ; see too much of the earth to  thus fetter their wings.     AVomen are made for  ; men's amusement���������the playthings    of  ian  hour.      If  perennial   youth,  poron-  I nial beauty, were theirs, it might, pur-  i haps,  be a temptation,   but  in  time,    a  'wife ages.   : Younger,  lovelier women  appear  on  the    scene.      Imagine    the  giinding   chainsl    No, no, my    friend.  Swear what vows you will, so that, you  keep your eyes wide open    that    they  are not binding."  And it was for this man, that she  might not disappoint him, that she  had left her sick and suffering husband���������this man, had talked to her of  women    as    something    too    holy    to  breathe lhe air with "men, whom she  now heard speak of the plaything of an  hour!  Even in the darkness a hot blush  lycd her cheeks. A consciousness oi  how near tho brink of the precipice she  had blood,Pawned upun her; ihe silent;  unfiling, watchful care of her husband  arose in contrast. Sho had put forth  hor hand lo grasp a myth, and lot! iho  teulity pass her by  .  Making hasty adieux to hei" hostess  who stepped into the hall, only to he  confronted by.a messenger.  "Mr. Franklin is so much1 worse,"  the man said, "wo took the liberty of  sending for you."  A dull fear took possession of her  heart. As fust as her horses could bear  her she returned to her home. Her  husband no longer recognized hor.  "AA'hut is it, dear?" he would say in  his unconsciousness. "How havo I  failed? Isa���������oh, my darling,' my darl-/  ing, fell me how to make yon love me!"  Then he had suffered, too; and she,  in her blindness, had seen nothing of  it.  It was many days ero tho mists of  fever scattered, and John Franklin,  woary and tirod, woko up to the| emergency of living. Somehow ho did not  seem to care to buckle on his shield  .igain; bul one morning, with the sunlight streaming into his room, his  wife, kneeling by his sido, and hiding  hor face on his breast, whispered her  confession.  "1 would never havo told you," sho  finished, "but that I felt I could not  quite stretch out clean hands for my  future happiness did I not let you  know how very .near I had mistaken  the tinsel and let fhe gold pass, me by  ���������accepted the torch which, going out,  God's sun shone in tho heavens above  me. Oh, John, say you forgive me!  Take me back to the great heart' from  which I  .have wandered."  But John, to whom words were ever  difficult, pressed instead a kiss on the  bright hair. Her face was hidden, ond  she could not seo the tear which rested  (here with' it.  PECULIAR   PRIVILEGES   OF   PEERS  Only Three "liny Keniiilii Covered lu   Pros-  ciiec ol' lhe Sovereign.  Tho more ancient peerages of the  British realm have attached to thein  certain curious privileges, granted to  ancestors of the present holders by  monarchs of- the past, and many are  tho .quaint and ridiculous ceremonies  the present holders have to perform  ofttimes in order to preserve tho right  to their.titles.  ���������For instance, the office of royal  champion is held by the Ds'mokes of  Scrivelsby Court, near Horncastle.:  AVilliam, the Conqueror granted Scrivelsby to Robert Do Marmion- on,  condition t"hat he and his successors  for all timeshould'^fficiate as royal  champions, stipulating'that if at any  time the owner of the nianor failed to  appear, either in person or by deputy,'  as champion at -the" coronation banquet the iscriveisby estate would be  forfeit to the crown.   ,'-.������������������  .For 8C0 years a representative from  Scrivelsby Court never failed to perform this duty, oven though in 1292 the  manor passed into the hands of the Dy-  mokes,. who have held it ever since.  Attired in complete armor, with  lance at rest, the champions' duty  consisted in riding into Westminster  Hall during the progress of the coronation banquet, preceded, of course, by  a herald. Reining up his steed by  the side of tho sovereign he then had  to challenge all comers to deny the  justice of the monarch's claim to the  tin one. and offer to fight them on the  spot. ���������--  .Needless to say, no one. coining forward to accept the challenge, a goblet  of gold, filled with wine, was handed  to the champion, who then drank to  the sovereign's health. This goblet  was  always retained as a souvenir.   I  A peculiar right is possessed by  Lord . Inchiquin. who can dress lus  servants in the same liveries as the  royal attendants. In the' reign of  Henry VIII. Lord Inchiquin was king  of the. southern-'part of Ireland, ana  in. return ior giving up his authority  the merry''monarch granted liim this  privilege.  It may surprise maiiy to know that  her Majesty bus suck a servant as a  sandal bearer. This office is fulfilled  by  the Earl of Hothes.  Another curious right is possessed  by the Spencers. Whim-a royal christening is about'to take place with or  without, leave, an earl of that name  is entitled to be present if he feels disposed to avail himself of lhe privilege,,  though io b>. in order he must present  himself with-his coat decorated wilh  solitl gold buttons, each of which must,  be  of a certain   weight.  On one occasion an Earl Spencer,  much against the will of the Queen,  presented bimsoll for admission to  the royal christening, 'resolutely refusing lo forego his right.  Of the validity oi hi;.; ciaim thore was  no doubt, but as a lust .resource ��������� lho  Lord Chancellor directed that, the gold  buiions on his coat should be. weighed  iu'see'it ihe.y complied with the oon-  -ditionu. One of th������m waa found to be  below the prescribed weight, and this  proved to h-a a sufficient reason for  excluding ihe Earl from the ceremony.

Eggs may be preserved for a month  by boiling thean one minute or sleeping them for a time in sweet oil.  Writing rendered illegible by age  may be restored by moistening if by  means of a leather with un infusion  of galls'or a solution, of prussiate of  potash slightly acidulated with muriatic acid, being careful to apply the  liquid as to prevent the ink spreading.  The best cement for china is made of  pulverized glass ground well with  the while of an egg. It will stand any  amount of wear.  A sealing wax tor fruit cane is made  from eight ounces of rosin, two ounces  of gum shellac, half an ounce of beeswax. Melt the rosi.n, add the shellac  slowly and afterward fhe beeswax.  This will make a quantity and may be  molted for use when wanted.  Housewives who be,moa.n. the lack of  lustre in their mirrors and windows  should add to the water i.n which they  are washed a generous dash of kerosene. To bo more exact, a pint of water  and three tablespoonfmls of oil will  wash four large windows. First dust  the windows carefully, then rub well  with kerosene and water, wipe with a  cloth a,ud polish  with old newspapers.  Ivory knife handles maybe whitened  and kept so-if they; are occasionally  soaked in alum water. The alum water  moist boil first and t.toen cool.

''-,"   ,.<.;...������������������  January as hardly. arrived when  the biudK . the ..mimosa begin to  swell, and by the end of the month  every grove in tho neighbourhood of  Cannes is a blaze of yellow gold. And  in the grounds of villas and chateaux  the flowering shrubs are hardly less  beautiful. Camelias. may. be seen, a  mass of flowers. The golden apples  of the orange show beautifully in the  setting of' its bright green leaves. And  ab for flowers, it is impossible to convey an idea of their abundance and  luxuriance. Visit the flower market  of Cannes or of Nice, and you are dazzled by the prolusion of daffodils and  jonquils, of roses and carnations, of  mignonette and violets, primulas and  pansies, cineraria and heliotrope, anemones, white, crimson and purple���������all  grown in the open air. In some situations cactus and acacia are in full  blaze, and in choice gardens, . like  that of Mr. Ta.rn.bury,' near ���������Meiilone,  the living aloe may be soeu, rearing  its mighty stem in preparation for its  display, and the dead aloe, exhausted  by the flowers of last season, which  are still seen clinging in a withered  state to its dead stem. Of late, years  there has sprung up a new industry  connected with the,trade in flowers.  The postoffice gives facilities for their  transmission, and every. day a profusion of little boxes is sent by visitors  to their friends at home, and larger,  cargoes are sent to flower dealers in  Paris, London, Berlin and other distant places. ,  CURING HAMS.  - Tbe following method of sugat-curing hams has biien used for years with  success: If the hams are large they  will require five or six weeks to tako  .salt, property. Hang them in . the  smokehouse and build your fire of  green kickory, although any wood  that burns slowly, with but little  blaze, will do. Smoke them two or  three wbcIss. Wash each piece clean  in water that is as hot as your hand  will bear and .while damp sprinkle  powdered borax all over tho flesh side  of every piece, and have no fear of  skippers or .insects. Hams hang in  the smokehouse till cured, also shoulders, without even a sack on' them. If  the summer huvP'-ns to bu dry, rewash  anjl put more borax on in Julyl and  August. The taste of the moat is not  injured. Each ham may bo tied up in'  a canvass or paper bag, or they may  be left hanging in a cool, dry place  and will bo found in excellent condition when wanted to use. The meat  is sweet ami juicy and the shoulders  almost  as good as the bams.  PANSIES.  AVhen pansies aro firmly' eslab-  lished, one will bo surprised at  the growth that they will mako.  Thoy are gross feeders and require frequent stimulants; liquid manure carefully applied at the roots increases the size of the blossom'.' Once  a weeJc is not too often to apply this  fertilize and they must be abundantly supplied with waler. Cut every  flower as soon as withered, pick off  the dead, leaves, peg down the straggling branches and you will have a  pansy bed of marvelous beauty. Ia  midsummer it is a good plan to cut  back the plants that came from lho  fall sowing and that blossomed all  spring and summer, and let them  gather strength for, plentiful and  fine autumn blooming. Remember  lhat the. three necessary elements of  a success are: rich soil, a shaded situation  and careful watering.  FRIENDSHIP.  Is there any word in the English  language that is more abused or, misunderstood than the word "friendship?" AsHve use it, it may mean any-  thing" ��������� everything ��������� from deadliest  hate and hottest love, downward to the  zero of complete indifference. But teal  friendship thero is nothing sweeter in  life ��������� and nothing rarer. Friendship  between women is almost impossible  The primary cause is, perhaps, jealousy.  Really, noble attributes in a "woman  counl for so little; she has so long  been made to feel that all good must  come to her through some ono of fhe  opposite sex, and in just such proportion as she is uhle to sway him through  his selflove, that spontaneity in a woman is almost unknown, and noble impulses, h.ive through disuse become  eradicated. She lias been taught that  the end is everything, the means nothing; she is-told to trample upon tho  loving hearts, the fair fame of her sisters if, by so doing, sho can gain her  desire; that others would do the same  were their positions reversed.   -. :;  Damon and Pythias have no complement among the fair sex. If one woman admits a feeling for another ,  warmer than that of mere tolerance,  she is laughed to scorn, and if she still  persists is treated, first/as a rara avis;  later, as something to be avoided. People say to one another: "Men we know  and women we know, but what are  these?" The need of friendship has  always been felt. Aristotle said:, ''Whosoever is delighted in solitude,' is either a wild beast or a god." .By solitude  he did riot mean the absence of a crowd  but the lack of a friend, a olosofriend  ���������a sort of alter ego. The Latins have  an adage which says, "Magna oivifaa,  magna, solitudo"���������a great city, a great  desert. .  The old Roman rulors used to officially appoint a personal1 friend for  themselves, and from, whom they demanded from their subjects-the utmost, respect. This friendl was sometimes Chosen from the very lowest  social ranks, and occasionally became  a serpent that "stung the hand that  warmed it." Sylla, when he commanded Rome, raised,Pompey, through virtue of his friendship, to a height equal  with himself. Pompey afterward successfully competed wilh Sylla for  political honors, and when remonstrated with for his duplicity bade Sylla be  quiet, that "more men adored the sun  rising than the sun setting."  Byron defines friendship as "love  shorn of his wings." He probably had  in mind the friendship between a man  acres to be impossible, and which wo  call  "platonic love."  We have never been able to seo why  friendship between an ' intellectual  man and woman should be an impossibility.' Are wo never to escape from  the bruto that, even after , the millions, of years consumed in our evolution, still clings to us? Aro wo always  to be dragged back by our feet of clay?  Love is selfish and consumes itself  by its own passion. But a friend! ono  to whom you may take griefs, knowing  that they will be lessoned by tho sharing, or joys, knowing that they will  he doubled by participation. Union  strengthens natural action and weakens unnituial action. Thus, joy being a natural feeling,'- is : doubled by  sharing with another, while sorrow,  being an unnatural feeling, is lessened.  If there is an unpardonable sin it  must surely be ihe habit of vulgarize  ing friendship by sneers,and a searching after motives.  NEW STYLE OF PITCHER..,  The new pitcher for serving icea  drinks is an -English invention, and  beautifully presented in both green  and ruby glass.

As  a matter of fact a looking-glass makes  one look -worse than one really is. The  hair is always slightly wrong in tone,  and the eyes not correct in color, and  the complexion is libelled. In fact,  the tone of the complexion is influenced entirely by the hangings of the  room, the window shades and the  strength of light.

A huge  stocking is prepared two or three days  before Christmas from tissue paper,  the parts being seourely pasted togethl  or. A good plan is to cut one half  of the stocking an inch, larger all  round than the other half.' 'Then lap  the extra width over on .the smaller  side and paste it down. This will pi e-  vont the unfinished appearance resulting from pasting two edges together,  and besides will prove more durable.  The stocking .is filled with light  toys, trinkets and trifles, and hung  from the coiling; Each guest, in turn,  is blindfolded, given a light cane or  rod, turns three times . around and  then is told to advance and hit tho  bag. Many are the misses, as every  one who has ever'attended a donkey  party will surmise. The first hit,  however, breaks the bag, and the contents come tumbling down. A scramble for,them ensues, and everybody  comes forth smiling, whether successful  in  securing  a    souvenir or not.  ���������Another ending to Christmas festivities is the securing'of the prize toy.  A fine toy is fastened upon the wall  and fired at with a paper dart, a tiny-  how and arrow or a putty gun. A  score is kept, and should no one actually hit the toy, it is given io the  one whose shot is nearest it. Of  course, the first hit secures the toy! to  the marksman firing the shot.

As we enumerated in an article last  week, this province possesses untold  quantities of natural diversified wealth  ���������resources that will never be devel-  owecl bj- a representation of men who  have never looked beyond the amassing of means for themselves in tbe  ordinary every clay business opportunities. It is of -infinitely more importance that the province should now  have broad-minded, well-read, experienced representatives to devise laws  to develop its resources, bring in the  necessary capital, industry and mechanical skill to make it what nature  designed it to be, than that it should  have them a century hence, when it  will have been placed properly on its  feet and going abend in its net ol developed prosperity.  AVe repeat again; if the people of the  pretent, who are here for tbe purpose  of milking homes for themselves and  their families, take .the right view ol  this matter, they will sail clear of the  self-seeking, self-sacrificing aspirant,  living ih'his own importance, and seek  the men of experience, breadth of  mind, possessors'of resource, wherever  found, and select them for their repre-  ,   seutntives.  There   is   no questioning   the   fact  that this is most especially a  critical  period in the history of the   province'"'  Apart from   its -needs for capable men  to properly hanc'lo its unfolding  capabilities,  it is, 'in the  hands  of men  who are for personal advancement resorting   to tlio' most dangerous^of all  expedients,  creating a strife, if not a  war, between capital and labor.' Of all  -..'  provinces in  Confederation this is essentially   a country   that requires to  husband, in the highest degree of mil-  : tu'ui respect, absolute harmony between  both.   Our legislation should all be of  a class  to allay all grounds for suspicion of had faith of the one in the other,  that both may work band in hand  in  tbe highest degree of respect in each  one for the well being of the other ; but  .   it is deeply  to be deplored that at the  present the very reverse of this is the  -    case.    In moat cases  the  representatives, and would-bc-represcntativcs are  endeavoring to set. these elements  at  each others throats, that they personally may profit thereby!

Consumers arc everywhere clamoring for cheap products,  often, though not always, the result of  low wages for labor, and machinery is  everywhere stepping in to supply the  popular demand. It is,, ol* course, a  stisfactory circumstance to note that  as a result of improved machinery and  flic crush of other circumstances, for  which the popular demand is to some  extent responsible, that the demand9  of labor are constantly declining  through the gratiually declining c&st of  living. But all the same, even if circumstances did- not tend to increase  our millionaires, labor would increase,  and employment for it intensifies the  problem. The necessary fields for it  cannot be increased by labor itself���������  they can only be found by the operations of .capital. How necessary then  that both should always act iu unison  and'harmony.  Capital is always seeking fields for  operation at a profit, and the more  such fields are widened thelarger becomes the area for the employment' of  abor. There is no gainsaying that. in ������ne direction so. it  cannot be operated at a profit, and it  will seek- other fields for investment.  Labor must, therefore," follow it or languish, and the means to follow are not  always readily available. . The advancement of any country depends on  these circumstances. If capital can be  satisfactorily employed in a given  country, the influx of labor is consequent, and with the'latter revenues,  the result of consumption, tlie mainspring of progressive growth and substantial development. England has  capital, and'for-a long, portion of its  history at least, contented labor, and as  a result ithas manufactures to sell and  cash te loan to the world.  This,, it''appears' to The Review, is an  object lesson for the legislators present  and future of British Columbia. As  we have pointed out in previous issues,  nature hats done its share-for this province iu giving it,a line climate, large  areas of 11g1k-11llur.1l, fruit growing and  ranching hinds, fiab in abundance���������all  to Riipplv the physical needs of a large  and varied population ; and inexhaustible supplies of all classes of minerals;  to keep that population employed in  mining and manufactures. To bring  about production in these ways is the  task of all tasks for our-legislators now  and for time to coi.'.o. Legislation to  handicap either capital or labor is, on  tho face of it, a mistake as it drives  the affected element into other channels, and we must have the contented-  operation of the one as well as the contented operation of the other, if wc are  to have the much'desired results.   To  restrict capital here means to drive it  into other fields for investment, and to  throw impediments in' the way'of labor  means to drive it where, cost ol living  and other circumstances considered, it  can be employed 10 better advantage.  As we said at the outset, labor is on  the increase from mitum! results, and  intensified because of the enlargement  and improvement of machinery to  bring down the cost of production, and  the problem is the best means of making 'provision for iLe employment. In  our own mining districts, it is only in  developed properties that it can be  employed to any great extent; and our  mining laws are too restrictive to encourage investment and development  to any perceptible extent. Thus in  the laws passed, ostensibly at tho request of the miners, to husband labor  there are the seeds sown that must prevent in many instances, and retard in  all, the very development upon which  future, labor employment must mainly  depend. The law may temporarily  meet the sympathy of the element in  whose interest it was passed; but by  driving capital into other channels, it  must strangle' our growth and prevent  ultimately the labor employment for  which natural progress is so distinctly  making demands.  ANOTHER UNION.  Nelson carpenters  have organized  a  union'and done some things wise and  some otherwise.   They are demanding  a nine-hour day, to which no fair man  can object, providing picsent work tinner cnntiact   is   excepted.   To ask  a  contractor to give a nine-hour day who  based .his.tender.on' a  ten-hour day is  unfair to him and may often result in  serious   consequences.     Tbo wage of  i?3 50 a day was adopted, and if this applies   to fair average men only, it certainly is nob too high, but if it applies  to indifferent workmen  it is unfair to  workmen and contractor alike; as some  carpenters  are well worth S-1.00,  even  for a nine-hour clay, while others, who  may have worked many years at it, are  worth little, more than half the money.  We think, however, that it is a piece  of impertinence to compel contractors  to employ none but union labor.   Is it  coming  to;' this   that   some   of   the  best men  in  their resfjectivo  callings  are to'bo   driven ' out   of it,   or' out  of tbe country altogether,   merely because  they do not feel disposed to join  the unions?   "Unions arc   in some respects  very serviceable   to labor, but  the   law   ought certainly   to   prevent  rashness of-this description.   Supposing  this thing   was carried out in all  branches as well as carpentry, where  would it end ?   The mine owner who  did  not', feci disposed to join a   mine  owners  association, though willing to  pay the highest wages in the country,  would be forced to shut up   his mine,  and the   farmer of Manitoba and  the  Territories,   who was not disposed to  join the   farmers' institutes  would be  driven  out of his  calling because   he  would be prevented from selling or disposing   of his  products.     Unions  are  perfectly justified   in fixing wages in  line   with   the   labor market   for the  time being, but they should never demand good wages for  inferior men, or  pass regulations depriving men of the  means of earning their livings at their  chosen callings, or passing regulations  tending   to   depopulate   the   country.  This is  too heavy a dose for the prosperity of any country.  "You'.will'- find enclosed'thirty-one  one-cent stamps for one of Dr. Pierce's  Medical Advisers, cloth bound," writes  James E.

That the labor problem is the most  important one coming before the legislatures of the world at the present  time, and one that is to occupy much  ol" their attention in the future, is a  fact that no one will attempt to deny.  To deal with it skillfully is a matter  that is engaging the attention of the  brightest minds. In short the regret is  thnt it is not left exclusively to the  cleverest meii of the world instead of  becoming the ball at the toes of the  mixtures  But thq  next breeze fans it into life  again.

SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemists, Toronto,  There are a few things about this  country of which our legislators appear to be lamentably ignorant or  which they intentionally overlook.  The first is that the country wants  mines as well as miners���������that in fact  without the one the other is impossible. The second is that mining is  more developed across the lines thaii  it is here, and that in many instances  development has shown larger ore  bodies over there than it has here,  which demonstrates that at the same  scale of wages mines can be worked  cheaper over there than here. The  third thing is that our tariff operates  seriouslv against operations here���������that  many of our necessary supplies are  subjected to duty, as well as our product'when sent across the lines to be  smelted, and a further Canadian duty  when returning after smelting and re-  lining. All these things are fast driving Canadian and English capital to  the States. Under the circumstances  our provincial laws should all be in the  direction of encouraging investments  here, and operations after investment,  instead of-handicapping by vexations,  compulsory. eight-hOur laws and the  like, as has'been the practice for  years past.

decision. 1 directed Mrs. Richmond

that, when they were gone, you were

Mr. Daryl looked keenly at Kilmeny's face as he finished; in order to
nark the surprise und exultation
which the knowledge of her new prospects Would awaken in her. Ho���
thought that what he had revealed' to
her had probably. been too much for
her, she looked so strange and' pale.
"Did you meet mamma on the evening whon we dined at Mr. Warreu-
dcr's?" she asked. 1 i
"i clid not moot 'mamma' anywhere,"
ho answered, frowning. "I. met Mrs.

There was a dinner party one evening, and Kilmeny  sat opposite to her
grandfather, taking her place as mistress  of  the  house.   Mr,  Daryl  nevor
omitted an invitation to, Lndy Perryth,
and she never failed to'accept it.     His
brotherly  attentions  were  made  sole-,
ly with a view to see her "puti down"
by his granddaughter, and her acceptance of them was due to some fascination _w Inch  she  could  scarcely define,
borne time or other an opening mighli
arise which; would give her an  oppor-i
tunity for revenge, and she must not'
miss it.     She  sat  watching the  girl
who     comported '    herself     with her
usual mdiiference to   Lady Penryth's
observation, and might   have   been   a
finished -woman of  the world for hot-
ease of manner and brilliance of style.
Lord da Bruyne was close beside her,
as he always  was.     Everybody knew
that he was Miss Daryl's suitor.
"I have found out what you have
against me," he said im a low voice
wheu everybody round them were talking. The remark was in continuance
of a conversation that "hud taken place
between them earlier in' the day,- when
be had asked Kilmeny what had caused her to change towards him since
she became Miss Daryl. "You are
faithful to old friends, though you never talk about them now. It is odd,

manner  warned him  of danger.      lie
had begun lo fiud, to his amazement;
that his heart-was still in existence,
and was beginning to  beat in an unusual   way  when  he    was  near    Mr.
Daryl's    granddaughter.      Tho '    aim
which ho had sot before him���to marry
her and retrieve his fortunes by means
of    her money���had    begun    io    look
strangely  inviting to  him  as well  as
advantageous.   A  strong    feeling    of
jealousy against Christopher Warren-
dor was waking in him, and a determination   to    accomplish   his  ruin   in
Miss Daryl's eyes came  with it.
The   riding party camo off the next
morning.   Kilmeny,  now    an    accomplished horsewoman, rode a beautiful
animal    which hor 'grandfather.',;' had
bought    lo   tuke    the   place,  of     tho
pony.   Lord de Biuyno   was beside her
and they made a remarkably handsome
pair.   The  remaining Jadies and  gentlemen   of   the   party   followed    chat-
ling and laughing.   It all looked very
gay  and  happy,  and   doubtless  many
people envied the girl to whom such
unexpected good fortune had come. But
Kilmeny   suddenly  felt  as  if  a    cold
band ..'.hud  clutched  her   heart    as ; a"
turn  of  the road  brought them face
lo  face  with  Christopher  Warrender.
He was riding slowly,when they met
him, ana his mien was thoughtful. To
Kilmeny it seemed as if ho looked older  than  when she  had   lasl   met him,
and  Killio  had   to  put  a  strong  effort
on herself not. to let any ono see ihe
effect, which the sight had  upon her.
She knew all at onco  that she wanted her "mother" and    all tho    simple
home-joys  which  had   made  her happiness until a few weeks ago, and that
she   hated  her  present   life,   with   its
brilliance  and  emptiness,      But  Lord
de Bruyn-e was beside her, and she was
conscious  gfhat  his  eyes   were    fixed
keenly on her face.   She must not betray    herself;    sho  must���though    it
should-'break:.h'er    heart���hide    -from
everybody ihe'great throb of joy which
she  felt at the sight of  the 'man before hor, who, even her mother    had
told   her,   was  shut  out  from   a  good
wo/man's  friendship.
Christopher reined in .hjs horse at
sight of the party, iind moved to one
side to lot them. pass. His eyes were
fixed on Kilmeiiy, and he waited for
a sign of recognition from her. The
lasL time thai they had met she had
leaned towards him and spoken in her
soft, wilful, .coaxing voice, begging
him to lee her enjoy herself. Now
she made the slight est possible inclin-
aticn. of her head, as he waited,-and
passed   on   without  a   word.
When Kilmeny could seo Lord de
Bruyne after everything had'ceased to
be blurred round her, he was riding
on without any change in his demeanor, and he was talking as if nothing
had occurred., She plunged into conversation with him recklessly, and
showed herself so gay and kind that
those behind nodded and smiled, saying to themselves that there would
soon hi a Lady de Bruyne. When
they reached home Kilmeny's companion at once sought an interview with
Mr. Daryl  in. his own room.
"I have come," he said, "to ask your
consent to my addressing: Miss Daryl
as a suitor for her hand. I havo quite
made up my niind about it; and I iwant
to complete everything as soon as
may be."
"You certainly come straight to fhe

mention oi: his feelings towards the
lady. It may-not suit my plans for
my granddaughter to be married merely because she is an-heiress." ' ��� ��� I
"I thought it bettor to spare you
all that," Lord de Bruyne answered.
"Of course I can make any proteatar-
tions you wish. I will do iny b-.'sl to
make Miss Daryl happy, and I do not
seek her as my wife simply because
she , is. an heiress."
"Would you have married hoi" if I
had not acknowledged hor?"
"No; because money is a uecossity
to me. Still it is not the only pr the
chief thing."
"It must be an urgent consideration.   You  have  lost  no   time."
"i should advise you to lose none
cither. , Your granddaughter tdill
cherishes a weakness for Warrender

Mr. Daryl looked darkly a! his questioner.-
"What grounds have you for dial

word for it. I have done my boat to

Mr. Daryl frowned again.
"She promised to-stay for a month
without  writing to anybody."
"A  mouth I   The only  way  to  keep

"To yourself, 1 suppose l"
The other nodded.
"I will take my chance," he said, "of

not forgotten the Richmond people,
and she is in love with AVarrcnder. She

and if she cannot marry him, she will

"Are j'ou fond of lhe girl?"
"Ye:-:���'kinder . than I ever thought

Kilmeny still thought of them and was
fond of them; and, most of all, he
haled Christopher Warrender. Before
he. parted Irom Lord do Bruyne il h.ul
beon settled thai nothing should be
allowed to prevent Kilmeny's becoming
his wife before lho stipulated mouth
should  hiwo elapsed.
"I have ono more lhing (o say," Lord
c|o "Bruyne observed' as he rose to go.
"I have decided to arrange affairs
without Lady Penyrth's intervention.
She is youi- granddaughter's enemy,
and she is a doub'e dealer. The less
she is hero the  be'Llor."
Mr. Daryl made no reply. It occurred to him, as Lord de Bruyne went
out of the room, thai he himself had
bedn merely a puppet in the hands
of Lady Penryth and Lord de Bruyne.
The reflections of the master of lho
house were noi of ihomo-it satisfac ory
nature as ho mused over Ibis interview
after his visitor had gone.   ���
Kilmeny  had  retreated  to  her own
room when the ride was over, a"nd had
locked   her  door.    Jler  head   felt    bewildered and her heart benumbed    by
what  had  taken  place.   The  sense of
a   mistake   also  weighed   on  her;   the
secret   about  her  parentage,   and   the
story ol Chris' guilt seemed lo be mixed up until she could not disentangle
them.    What   had   her   mother   really
said  about  him?     What  reason    had
her grandfather for breaking off her
connection  with  him ?, It: was  all   a
wretched muddle to Kilmeny as she sat
and thought  over   it,  and she    could
not evolve order out of the chads.  Two
things   only  were   clear   to  her,    and
those  were,  Lhat  she had  by  her  act
(hat  day  parted   herself  finally  from
Chris,  and,  by  doing so,  prevented  a
return  to her "home."   Moreover,, by
nolook or deed of hers must she ever
Jel   any one suspect what it had  cost
her   to  make,  thai   severance.
Miss Daryl's maid had never found
hor young mistress so hard Lo please
as she was that evening when she was
dressing her for dinner, and Kilmeny
had never looked so radiant and smiling as whon she went down to meet

''neighbors   looked    for   my; recovery.
My appetite was    almost    completely
gone,   and   I experienced  great   weakness,   'dizziness,    vomiling spells   and
violenL    headaches.   I  was  also troubled   with  a cough  which   seemed    to
rack my whole system.   I shall never
forget    the agony experienced   during
Idiat long and tedious sickness.   Medical    treatment and medicines of various kinds had no apparenL  effect    in
relieving me.     AfLer    existing in ihia

emblems of woe���gleamed on her

with a dignity which made Mr. Daryl's
heart swell anew with pride, and caused Lord tie Bruyne's eyse to fill with
a subdued admiration of her beauly

' , To   Be  Continued:-
Dress- reform seems    to  have made
but little progress since Mrs. Amelia
Rloomer, 50 years  ago, electrified all
London   by  walking   down   the street'
attired, in a costume, designed by, "herself and whiciv was afterward known
as   the  Bloomer ' costume. "    At    that
time,   it : will   be  remomlJe'i-ed,  hoop-1
skirts were worn, and of such- a- generous proportion (that'it-was with ���difficulty;, attended by  all sorts of  dangers of uptilting skirts, that ladies entered a, doorway; or seal ed themselves
except   in'the    most    rigid positions^
The spectacle of a  lady, high, in  the
social and literary world, walking. unconcernedly ' down   the   street, attired
in a short skirt and minus 'the disfiguring  hoopskirt,   must  have    seemed
highly ludicrous to the average Britisher, and no doubt many pairs of male
lips    ejaculated    "bah  Jove I"    whilo
critically and curiously regarding the
daring    lady    through  'the    monocle.
Many   improvements, have  since  been
made    in      the     old-time     bloomers,
adopted the costume.     Of  the    many
"rational'' dresses which have been de-
sigii/ed,  none ot Lhcm has boon  artistic ; and if 'we are going In for "dress
reform," why not- let the reformation
be  complete���from  an  artistic  standpoint���as   well   as  from  the    sanitary

No one nowadays objects to any

grounds of immodesty,  for we all   re

made by extending ail Lhe corners out

ribbon the exact width of fhe cushion'.
Between each division thus made is-a

A water-lily cushion may b3 formed

The sentiment, which, some years
ago, was exprossed by Mrs. Ecob, that
"for a woman Lo hide her nether limbs

The returns from the Manitoba elections go to show'that the Greenway  government is likely to be defeated.  At present the opposition have two of  a majority, though one constituency is  a tie, ami two elections to be yet held,  so neither party can i'eei very safe.  Hugh John's extreme populaniy has  worked wonders. He himself defeated  Cameron, a cabinet minister, in South  Winnipeg. Hon. ltubt. Watson, of  Portage ia Prune, another cabinet minister, was also deieated.  One of the interesting  social events  of the season was the marriage of Mr.  Geo. B.

The ceremony-  was performed at  the  Goodenough, in the presence  of .only  the family circle and one  or two most  intimate friends.   The bride, who wore  a becoming travelling costume ol' dark  grey  with boquet of natural rosebuds,  was assisted by her sister,   Miss Hammond,  while the groom was supported  by Mr.'O.K. Hammond, brother of tlie  bride.   After congratulations the party,  sat   down   to. a   sumptuous   wedding  breakfast.     The   numerous   presents,  both   useful and costly, from friends  present  and   abroad,  testified   to   the  esteem in whicn the wedded couple are  held.
