P  'A  ,'jmti the way the present owners of  ityhine aro putting in appliances to  the property and the results  aring from operations, the former  ed by the latter, it is evident that  f^aat Chance will shortly press hard  {<������t rank as a shipper.  !a Last Chance was.located in 1891  jhe Hennysies, and sold by them  My after at a low figure to Hendryx  [ /Comlinsou. These two gentlemen  .'.development found that they had  5 than ordinary property, and as a  ^quence, Mr. Tomlinson, about a  *t  - ^ago, was enabled to sell his inter-  ^ a handsome figure.   At the time  fty alterations   in the   proprietary  ''"/place.   Dr. Hendryx and the prcs-  ' manager, A. F.

Ry.; at the .ap-  [tUoh to the long bridge, and one and  > ^quarter miles from the lower tun-  ijof the mine.,  'ike building is 16x  ,i four stories high,   about 75 feet  ,'As the ground to the top of the roof.  jSmay be imagined the building is  \ i fy strong.   A level platform extends  t |> ,m the trail to tho floor of the upper  h  Vy, whien   renders operatio n most  vj /ivement   and   complete.      As   the  g -jcture is what is technically called  % gravity aerial tram, the machinery  ,9> 'ihe ore house is simply what is rehired for controlling the velocity ac-  * jired by the excess of the. weights of  Jsceriding buckets over the ascending  !tes.   On reaching the lower terminal  ���������V the   eastern . cables,   the . buckets  kpty automatically, the ore deseend-  | ft through a winding flight until it  <aches the lower floor on a level with  ��������� e shipping platform,  where it  is  ������cked and loaded onto cars.   On each  ��������� ,6or there are all the appliances needed  I -j it regulating the institution by steps.  * ne cables are, perhaps, one'tend a half  ,������'���������; iob.es in diameter,  and   capable of  ' V jipporting some 36 tons, though it is  | "'}ibtfulifmqre than one quarter of this  Speight will ever be placed upon them.  .f ?here are nine spans in the length of  " [ram, all varying length and degree of  ���������escent.    This is occasioned by   the  Slacing of: the supports on hills to afford an elevation for the safe passage  ���������if snow slides at any time underneath.  *��������� Sne of the spans Jls 2,800 feet long and  fvfv^OO feet high.    The lowest   one. has,  jJerhaps, the greatest declivity of all,  ���������jwing to the steepness of the hill in  that locality.  '; In its parts the structure has a'cap-  a |icity of 75 tons a day, but at present  % in its initial stage is not worked to its  I limit.    In  their  upward travel  the  J'(buckets now haul lumber for a board-  VIfing house, 26x70, now being erected at  I- fehe mine  for. the accommodation of  xhe miners. The buckets complete the  (circle of 2} milee in about 50 minutes,  /but will be operated   more rapidly  <yhen the machinery is fully tested  (and in regular working order.  /   At present the only building at -the  (place besides tne ore house is a resi  dence for Mr. Cole, the manager of this  portion of the company's property,  and nn office. Other buildings will be  found necessary later on. We believe  the choice of train was made by Mr."  Wood, the resident ^manager of the  mine, and the construction controlled  by Mr. B. C. Riblct, who' is proving  himself one of- tho most successful  builders in the province.. The locality  can be easily reached by foot up the  Reco trail and Cody Ry., or by wagon  up the Cody wagon road to the brewery, where , it winds up the hill on an  easy grade.  To the present the mine shows a  most successful record, and with this  capable, machinery it will speedily  press for first place as a heavy, steady  shipper.  New C. P. R. Line.  The two survey parties of the G.P.R-  running the lines between Vancouver  and New Westminster, have met. One  party started from here and the other  from the Royal City. From here a  line was run from south of the sugar  refinery to the head of False creek,  thence under the trestle bridge and  southeast to Central Park. The lines  run from New Westminster were from  the depot, down the. North Arm and  thence north to Central Park. It is  understood that a good grade has been  found. The two parties have gone out  .again to complete the angles. Levels  have already been taken and all the  lines blazed. The distance to New  Westminster by the new route, upon  which work will be commenced, it is  said, in the spring, will be about ten  miles. The Royal City will then ��������� be  on the main line.���������Province.  A Fatal Accident.  Nelson, B.ti., Dec. 17.���������John O'Leary,  a well known railway contractor who  has been operating in Kootenay district for several years, was kilted yesterday on the Robson-Penticton railway .upon which he had a sub-contract.  While he was superintending the lowering of a large stone into its place  one of the guy ropes broke and the  mast of the derrick swung downwards,  pinning the unfortunate man to the  ground and injuring him so severely  that he died 20 minutes later. Deceased was a native of Maine.  A MURDERER CONFESSES.  Details of the  Horrible Tragedy Which  Happened   in   Manitoba."  Winnipegj Dec. 20.���������The confessed  Stuarlburn murderer, Simeon Czaby,  was brought into the city yesterday by  Detective Cox of the provincial police.  Czuby made a confession of the murder of Bocehko and his four children  to J. W. Yeo and his daughter, imploring their protection. He confessed  that he had committed the crime and  sought their advice as to how he might  escape the authorities. He said that  on October 14th, about 6 o'clock, he  had gone to Bocehko's house. He  found Bocehko cooking his supper of  porridge. He and , Bocehko had a  friendly chat, in which Bocehko told  him that he had $50. He. asked for  the loan of $20, which Bocehko refused.  Seeing that he meant to use.violence,  Bocehko seized the axe and Czuby  drew his revolver and fired twice in  quick succession. In the dim light he  missed his aim. Then he grappled  with Becehko and, with ease, for he  was a larger, and stronger .man,  wrenched the axe from the other's  grasp. Knocking him to the ground  he hacked him with the blunt weapon  a dozen ti/neB or more, until all signs  of life had disappeared. Turning his  attention to the children, he found  that two of the bullets had struck the  children with fatal effect. One had  hit the baby near the corner of the  mouth and, striking the teeth on the  opposite side had remained there imbedded in the flesh, while" the other  was driven through the little one's  cheek. He then killed the two other  children who were crying loudly, and,  to make matters sure, hacked even the  two already dead a le.w times. Securing the money he started for home.  There he hid the money and revolver.  On entering, his house he, found that  he was covered with blood.' His coat  was spattered with blood and brains,  and even his hat had marks upon it.  He changed hia clothes and buried  them later on, together with his hat.  He promised Mr. Yoe to show him  where the moner an-1 revolver were  hidden. Czuby apparently realizesthe  enormity of his crime, ashe made two  attempts to commit suicide, while en  route to Winnipeg. He is lodged in  the provincial jail here.-r-Free Press.

Mr. Bruce White, one of the leading,  mining nfe.n of British Columbia, says  the Montreal Star of recent date, arrived in the city, - yesterday from  Washington, where lie, spent some  days. -While there he convened with  a numbur of people supposed to bo in  touch with both the Canadian and  American commissioners, yet he returns to Canada quite convinced that,  apart from a probable settlement of  the sealing question, the conference  will have few results that will in any  way be beneficial to the Dominion. , In  referring to mining matters, he said  that no one supposed it probable that  the duty of about $30 per ton, which  the Americans impose upon Canadian  Biver-lead .ores, would be repealed.  However, he said, this would be cured  in time by the erection of smelters in  Canada, and neither did Mr. White  think the mines of British Columbia  would suffer in the least if an export  duty were imposed on gold and copper  ores,  If the Dominion executive'grants  the request of the Japanese ambassador to Eugland, now formally conveyed  to Ottawa, and disallows the provincial  legislation forbidding the employment  of Japanese on statutory chartered undertakings in British Columbia���������as for  example railroads, waterworks, etc.���������  there will be a great labor issue raised  in the province. The Japs,,'who are  working for 85 cents a- day or ������25 a  month, without board, are ingenious  enough to occupy most trades and employments and are rapidly ousting the  white worker from lumbering, fishing,'  wharf work, and other industries.  Hence the need of restrictive legislation, to which the Japs object. If they  continue, as now, to accept readily less  than a white man's living wage British  Columbia will become a country largely peopled by Mongols and affording  little opportunity for the ordinary  British worker. There are now 2,000  Japs in. British Columbia, but they  are coming in by every steamer from  the Orient and promise to be a far  more serious deterrent to white emigration, of the kind wanted, than the  Chinese influx.  The LeRoi Leads.  MINING  MATTERS.  Captain R.  C. Adams,   Interviewed   by  an Eastern Journalist.  Captain R. C, Adams, the well known  mining man and president of the Midway. Company of British Columbia,  has returned from* his annual visit to  that province, says an Eastern paper.  The Captain reports an exceedingly  pleasing condition of prosperity  throughout the Pacific province. The  coast cities* he says, have been greatly  benefitted by the Klondyke. travel and  business. Vancouver ' is rapidly7 becoming a large and important city  while Victoria also shows signs of improvement, and is a most attractive  residential town. Along, the southern  border of the province signs of pros-  persty were' everywhere evident. The  completion of the Crow's Nest Railway  had provided many facilities and given  great encouragement to business enterprises. Nelson was aisuming the  aspect of a genuine city, and Rossland  was recovering from the reaction resulting- from an overboom. The sale  of its large mines and the reportedin-  crease in the value of other properties,  where ore was considered of doubtful  grade, had raised the spirits and h������pes  of the miners.  Work is steadily proceding on the  Queen Bess mine near Three Forks,  which is being operated by the Queen  Bess Proprietory Company, a subsidary  company of the Dominion Mining and  Development Company. About 250  tons of ore have been shipped so far  this winter, consigned to the Everett  smelter. The ore is brought down the  sleigh road to Alamo aiding. . The  roads are now in excellent condition,  though they were bad for a time in  November. A telephone service has  recently been established between the  The Spokesman-Review, in discussing dividend-paying mines, says: -  "British Columbia o'ccupies'no small  portion of the list, and it is a noteworthy fact that almost everyone of  the dividend payers of the province is  owned in Spokane, in whole or in part,  at this time,, or was at some time  owned by one or more of Spokane's  hustling mining men.  "The LeRoi leads the list, of course,  ���������witn $925,000 paid. It is probably true  that the Payne mine in the Slocan has  paid more dividends than the LeRoi,  but it is owned by a close corporation  and no statement of profits is ever  given to the nubUC'! _The Slocan Star  16 credited with the largest payments  of tttiy Slocan property, having paid  $400,000 up to March, 1897, which is  given as the date of the last. The  Reco, at Sandon, is listed as having  paid $297,500, the last payment being  $100,000 in January, 1898. The Whitewater mine, which raised J.C.Eaton  from poverty to affluence, is credited  with payments of $194,000 up to April,  1898, when the last payment was made.  The Cariboo, the mine which made  several Spokane men wealthy, is credited with $236,965. The Last Chance  and Rambler-Cariboo, two Slocan  properties, have paid $40,000 apiece.  The Hall mines, limited, of Nelson,  an English corporation, has paid $160,-  000."  The Queen Bess  dend next month.  P. Ptirns has increased the force on  the Minnehaha mine  For the week ending Dec. 17 the  Whitewater mine shipped 45 tons of  ore.  A very important f.trike was m;ide  the other day on the Two Friends  mine on Springer Creek.  It is reported that an English company are buying the Mountain Chief, at  Nelson, from Geo. Hughes.  An English Company have taken a  bond for $30,000 for four claims on the  South Fork of Kaslo creek, owned by  J. Rackliff and E. Boies.  The Slocan Lake ore shii^ments for  week ending Dec. 15, were : From Silverton���������Comstock, 40 ; Vancouver, 40.  From Bosun Landing���������Bosun, 17; total  97 tons.  Negotiations are still in progress for  the Enterprise mine, on Ten Mile, and  a deal may yet be closed this winter.  The working of this mine, to it? full  capacity,_ will be a big thing for the  lake region, as it can employ 200  miners at once, being fully developed.  This mine while doing development  work this season shipped 400 tons of  ore arid also piled up on the Ten Mile  wharf 600 tons, ready to be shipped at  any time.  At the Emily Edith mine 20 men are  employed and ore is being taken out  and sacked daily, already a carload of  this high grade ore is ready for ship- '  ment. Although only acquired within  the year by the present owners over  1,400 feet of underground development,;  work has been accomplished. This  mine is being systematically developed and outsiders have no idea of its  magnitude or what an important bearing lt ,will have in making Silverton'a  big.-prosperous/permanent townr   ���������������������������   "  The force on the Comstock Mines is  gradually being increased and devel-  opement work in the tunnels is again  being pushed ahead. It has been the  policy of the r-inagement to suspend  active operations at the mine while  the concentrator was being built owing  to the la'jk of accommodations for the  ore if mined. As the concentrator  nears completion men are being put  on and in a short time a full force will  be at work. This company will employ at least 75 men when running at  lull blast.  Sandon Ore Shipments..  A NEW RAILWAY.  Bright Future for the Lardeau-Duncan  ;'���������,'.��������� Country,  The contract has been let for the  construction of 35 miles of the Duncan  & Lardeau railway and which must be  completed by September 1st, 1S99.  The construction of this railway will  push that portion of the Trout Lake  mining district to the fiont, in which  such valuable groups as the Abbott,  Bannockburn, Francis Jewell, Wagner  and many others too numerous to mention are located. Too much credit  cannot be given to the mine owners for  the staying quahti������s shown in opening  up their properties and producing tonnage as an inducement to railways to  push on their lines and open up what  will prove one of the richest portions  of - West Kootenay. Representatives  of strong mining and smelting as well  as railway companies have very carefully examined the district, and, as  some good offers were made for uirler-  ent groups, we may look forward to  great activity there this coming season. With both water and railway  facilities to ship the ore, thus furnishing the cheapest cost of treatment, as  ore can then be shipped to all the  great smelting points.

I    THE CHRISTMAS DINNER.  The characteristics of a Christmas  dinner should bo brightness and glowing oolor. On this account table decorations in which red and green are  akilfuilly combined aro very effective  for  a Yule-tide  dinner.  A menu for a Christmas dinner may  bo as followei  Caviare Toast.  Cream-of-Beet   Soup.  Smelts, Burter Sauoe.  Fried Potatoes.  ��������� Sweetbread   Pates.  Roast Turkey stuffed with Oysters.  Cranberry     Jelly.  Sweet-potato      Croquettes.  Roman   Punch.  Boiled   Quail.  Lettuce.  Craokers. Cheese. Olives. Salad Almonds.  Mines Pio.  Biscuit Tortoni.  Fruit.  Coffee.  Oreme de Mentho.  ���������While the manner of preparing muny  of the dishes mentioned in  this menu  may be familiar to the average housekeeper,  the reoeipts for making  some  ot them may be .unfo-milia.T.   Moreover,  it is convenient to have all the reoeipts  tor  the different viands to  be served  sufficient to thoroughly incorporate  tho butter into tho flour. Now divide  the pastry into two parts, putting one  half away in the ice-chest to keep cold  until needed for tho pie. Line pate-;  pans with the remaining pastry, greasing the tins thoroughly. Fill with  the sweetbread mixture, and bake lo  a delicate brown in a quick oven.  , Filling for Pates. ��������� Parboil and  blanch the sweetbreads, and cut, not  ohop, into small pieces. Cook together  1 table-spoonful each of .butter and  flour, and when they bubble, add slowly, stirring all tho time, 1 cup of rich  milk or cream. When this boils,  pour it vory slowly upon 2 eggs boat-  en light. Return to the fire, add tho  tho sweetbreads, and cook "for only a  moment. Set the mixture away to  get cold before filling the pastry  shells.  Boast Turkey with Oyster Stuffing.  ���������Make a stuffing of fine broad crumbs,  minced parsley, pepper and salt to  taste, and a largo spoonful of molted  butter. Chop 31) oysters fine, and mix  thoroughly into the bread crumbs. If  the mixture prove dry, mix with a little of the turkey with this stuffing,  sew up carefully, bind the legs and  wings close to tho body, place in a baking-pan, and pour a large cupful of  boiling water over the fowl. Roast  fifteen minute to the pound, basting  often.  Cranberry Jelly.���������Stew a quart of  cranberries in a half-pint of water until soft and broken. Rub through a  colander, return the juice to the fire,  add a pound of granulated sugar, and  when this is dissolved pour into a jelly  mould wet with cold water, and sot  aside to form.  Bwcet-potato Croquettes. ��������� To - 2  cups of warm mashed sweot-potato add  a table-spoonful of melted butter,' a  littlo salt and pepper, a tiny pinch of  nutmeg, and 1 egg. Mix all well together, form into croquettes, roll in  egg and cracker crumbs, and set aside  until firm and cold. Fry in deep fat.  Broiled Quail.���������Clean the birds, split  them down tho back, and lay in cold  water for, half an hour. Wipe dry,  and broil on a gridiron over a clear  fire. , Remove to a lioL dish, place a  lump of butter on each bird, and set  in the oven for three minutes before  serving.  Lettuce.���������Wash and 'carefully pick  over tho lettuce. Serve with French  dressing made on the table. For this  dressing use -1 table-spoonfuls of oil, 2  of vinegar, a few drops of onion juice,  pepper and. salt to taste.  Minoe Pie���������As every housekeeper has  her own particular receipt for mincemeat, it seems hardly necessary to  give her directions for the preparation  for this sine qua non of our Christmas  dinner. The mince-ineat should, of  course, be prepared and packed away  in a stone crock several weeks before  it is to be used, that it may mellow  and ripen. It should be moistened  with a littlo sherry and brandy when  tho crook is opened.  Roll tho pastry into a sheet about  an eighth of an inch thick, cut into a  round, and fit into a large deep pie-  dish. Handle very lightly. Fill tho  dish with the mince-meat, and lay  aoross the top of the pie a trellis-work  'made of strips of pastry an inch wide.  Bake in a quick oven until brown. Be  sure that the bottom of the pie bakes  Make into ��������� form four to ' six puddings; tie each in a,scalded and floured pudding cloth; boil unceasingly for  four hours; then hang up in a cool, dry  place until wanted. When wanted  boil again for two hours; serve ' with  hard sauce, which should be made as  follows:  Powdered sugar and best butter;  take a pile of sugar twice the size of  the butter; beat thoroughly and long  with the yolk of an egg; then beat in  tho white of tho egg, previously whipped stiff. Flavor with just enough  lomon juice and sherry or brandy to  suit the taste and not thin the sauce.  Pile tho sauce on a serving dish or  plate and set away to cool and harden.  WORSE. WEEDS THAN TOBACCO.  at a dinner party   attaohed    to     tho  quickly and thoroughly, or it will be  menu, as the cook or housekeeper has  soggy and moist.   Serve hot,  then  everything direotly   under     her      Salted Almonds.���������Blanch the shelled  eye, and need not take the time to look  up the necessary directions ln various  ������ook-books. Therefore there will be  found below receipts for all the dishes  mentioned in our Christmas menu,  with the exception of the ices, which  are  furnished by a oaterer.  Caviare Toast.���������Spread strips of buttered toast with tho contents of a can  of caviare made into a paste by mixing  lt with 3 toospoonfuls of melted butter, a little salt, and a dash of cayenne pepper. Squeeze a few drops of  lemon juico on each piece, and serve.  Cream-of-Beet Soup. ��������� One quart of  beets, 1 quart of milk, 1 (able-spoonful  of butter, 2 1 able-spoonfuls of flour  Borape.the skin from the beets, and put  them on to boll In a pint of water.  Cook until tender, when the water in  whioh they were boiled should be of a  deep crimson hue. Chop tho beets, and  press them through a vegetable-press,  then add them to the water. Cook  together in a saucepan the butter and  flour, and when they bubble stir slowly on them the scalding milk. Stir  . over tho fire until the mixture thickens, then add the beot puree. Season  with salt and white peppor.

Set the almonds in a cold  room to become crisp.  .ENGLISH PLUM PUDDING.  This is the season for plum puddings, and a woman who inherited tho  recipe for English plum pudding from  a long line of English ancestors, and  who has been gradually making  changes in her method of making,.the  puddings, sends her recipe for the benefit of readers. It will be observed  that the modern improvements include  a substitution of coreallue for Indian  meal, and no eggs are Used. The use  of one ot the now meat grinders for  grinding the. nuts is a great saying of labor over the old nor tar and  pestle. The sauce described, it is asserted, is different from and superior  to any elsewhere described.  "The bread crumbs, ceroalino, and  apples," the writer says, "make thei  pudding light, tho fruit and suet are  the pudding, the flour simply holds it  ull together, and the molasses, cider,  and brandy moisten it,''.while; the spices  give it flavor. The : boiling amalgamates, the ingredients aiid tho sauce  makes it go. When the pudding.is  served it should be: adorned with a  sprig of holly to .suit tho season."  The recipe is as follows;  Chopped beef kidney suet, two quarts  bowls, bread crumbs, one quart bowl;  cerealine, one quart bowl; salt, one-  half tablespoonful; brown sugar, two  pounds;, raisins, three pounds, stoned;  currants, throe pounds, cleaned; desiccated cocoanut, one pound; citron, one  pound, cut fine; figs, one pound, chopped; chopped apples, two quart bowls;  alcohol off peach pits, olio gill; lemon  peel grated from,three lemons; lemons  juice from three lemons; almonds, one-  half pound, chopped; flour, one and  one-half or two quarts; molasses, cider,  and brahdj- to mix with; nutmeg, one  tablespoonful; cinnamon, two table-  spoonfuls; cloves, one tablespoonful; al-  spice, one    tablespoonful;, essence     of  Tito ftendlj- Subslldilos VHiIcli iiro Smobnl  In Kin-ill i:ni;lini<l.

There is no need to_go to  the Far East to ferret out weird and  pois-onous smoking habits; they lie all  around us.  In Somerset and tho southwest).counties a great many persons smoke a  concoction called "sundew." It is. not  a mew fad, but has been in use for  three hundred .years there. Sundew  is a, mixture of sun dried) beet leaves,  parsley and peppermint���������a very littlo  of the latter. It is iioij a . very harmful mixture, though it conduces to  considerable drowsiness, and is anything but good for the teeth. You  may noLico in tho western counties a  good many persons .with browned or  blackened teeth; it is the result of sundew-smoking. The stuff; is not pleasant Lo a stranger, for iL is very hot  and choky and Lakes a great deal of  getting used Lo.  Sundew is oft.en homo made, and  most of tha country people: are experts  at making it. They set, apart a week  in' July for Lhe sundewi harvest, and it  is always dried and mixed by women.  However, there aro three regular sundew factories in Somerset, where bushels of Lhe mixture, are turned out. It  can be boughL for from two-pence Lo  threepence per -'ounce, according Lo  quality.  Going a little further north ^Gloucestershire "nd MLdwales, you will  utrikei  A MUCH WORSE HABIT.  The people there ��������� Lown and country  alike ��������� ai-e much given' to smoking  "glissop." Glissop is a. sort of dry  mash of hemlock leavea ��������� the young  shoots LhaL grow in spring ��������� burdock  and ground chick beans. This can  also be boughL aL Eoine shops, Lhough  mo3t of iL is home made. When  bought iL foLches foui ponce an ounce.  This stuff' is smoked in short wooden  pipes wiLh very small bowls, and- is  ioaliy disasLrous in iLs effects. Liko  sundew, iL needs practice to gel used  Lo, but is much pleasanler to the palate- than LhaL compound. ILs flist  eiftcl on a snio'-ior is loss of memory  and Lliis increases till the- smoker.ailler  six months of Lhe habit, is quite unfitted for any profession, thai requires  much Lhought. ' Th������ eyesight i-.oon becomes affected by constant and excessive indulgence in Lhe habit, wkioh  takes hold of a man like inorpho-  mania and is almost incurable.  . Even tinail children may be seen  smoking glissop, though buL for the  fchipa ot tho pipe employed asLranger  would not know LhaL . Lhey were not  smoking tobacco, unless he wore' very  clone. The smell of smoke however, induced a Lickling of Lhe nostrils and  a i.oiL of giddiness, which is quile unmistakable.  Tobacco is far les<* Injurious, even  when indulged in Lo oxco.-.s, Lhan this  pohonous compound. AlLhough iL is  dearer lhan ordinary "shag" Lobacco,  Lhe pooresL people who are addicted Lo  iL always get iL instead. 'Ihey say  they cannoL taste or sineU even the  strongest tobacco any more lhan ifiL  were inisL.  Varioui good people of the districts,  feeling distressed at the ill effects of  the bad habit; and 7  ALARMED .AT ITS PREVALENCE,  have started regular crusades against  it, holding'meetings in the; stroets and  trying to get habituals to sign a sort  of pledge never to touch glissop again.  It has a stronger hold than even drink,  however.  iiut of all tho poisonous compounds,  smoked in that country, "pennyleaf"  takes tho lead by a- long head. It is  anoLhcr' mixture ��������� all those ghastly  stuffs are mixtures���������and is chiefly  composed of marigold leaf, dock and  a venomous plant called "Durham  gloss,"'that grows in dampi places in  woods. This compound is smoked in  short clays, and a- confirmed smoker  will get. through a couple of ounces a  day. Its cheapness recommends it, and  no person who has smoked much of it  cares for tobacco.

As tho farmers who buy their meat  at  tho    grocery    usually    pay double  what it would cost to put it. up from  their own herd, and as by Lhe exercise  of proper    care they can have better  moat and Hint which Lhey know to bo  hcnlthy,   and as  tho season  when   the  farmers can keep fresh meat for some  time and when  the year's supply can  bo  cured is    approaching,  it seems  a  timely topic to write upon now, writes  Waldo  F. Brown.      My first  suggestion is that the farmer should always  put up pig pork and if tho pigs are fed  until five  months old mostly on muscle  forming  food such as  bran,  oats,  and oil meal it will give a larger per  cent of. lean meat and a sweeter and  better flavored article.   I havo followed this plan for many years and find  tho meat vory much better than from  old  and  over  fat hogs.      A  pig  that  will dress from 150 to 175 pounds is a  better size than a larger one and for  fresh    meat during    October and November,  pigs four or five months old  that  will  weigh  one hundred  pounds  or evon less make excellent meat.     If  three or four farmers living near each  other will arrange to exchange meat,  and will kill  at different  times  they  need not pay any money to the butcher for at least six months of the year.  During' October and a part of November tho meat should bo coolod with ice  and,, before    it is tainted put  into fa  sweet pickle made wiLh one pound of  sugar to each two pounds .of salt and  three  gallons  of  water.-    This pickle  must not be used twice but fresh pickle made each time meat is put down.  If the meat la thoroughly coolod and  kept under the brine it -will keep for  two wcoks or  more  during fall  weather.   I  would not kill-the pigs that  are to be cured.to furnish the summer  meat  until  the    weather is    cold and  usually it is best to defer it. until December,   but keep Lhe family supplied  with moaL by exchanging with neighbors  up to    that  date.     See  that' all  meat is ihoroughly cold before sailing.  Every family should have a supply of  pickle pork as it adds to tho flavor of  many    kinds of    vegetables    to    cook  them with a small piece of sweet pork.  I prefer a btone jar to salt the pork in,  and they can be bought of any size up  to twenty gallons for about 10 cents  a gallon.     Select Lho Lhickest and fattest pieces for pickle pork.     Cover Lhe'  bottom of tho jar with an inch of salt  and ,then pack a layer of meat set on  edge as tight as it can bo put in, then  another  inch  of    salt and another  of  meat till all  is packed, and cover the  tops with salt.     Fit a cover so iL will  settle    down on    the ineat~'and  laose  enough so that. iL can be taken off and  put back easily;  put a weight oh  it  and  then  make  a brine as strong   as  possible and when cold pour it over Lhe  meat.     Tho brine should be several inches above tho meat so that when    a  part    of   a   layer is taken out it will  still cover all of it, for if any is above  the  brine for a long time it  will get  rusty    and    strong.      Pork pickled in  this  way  will  keep  perfectly   the  entire year and fill a useful place in ihe  family. For meat (hit is lo be smoked  I  use sugar with iho salt, one  pound  of sugar to two of salt, and if lhe meal  is to be put in pickle, two gallons   of  water to each three pounds of Lhe mixed salt and sugar.     Salted in this way  the meat should remain in Lhe picklo  for five    weeks. I   prefer, however 'to  cure the meat that is to bo smoked by  what is called the ten day process    of  curing,   which is a dry curing plan. I  have cured my bacon in this way-for  four years, and some of my neighbors  for  many years  longer,  and we  have  always had the meat just right, neither too salt' nor too fresh and of excellent    flavor.      One advantage of  this  plan is that one heed not be to   tho'ox-  pehse of, buying a. tight barrel-to salt  the meat in.    1 use sugar barrels, costing  5 cents    each,    til ways, using  two  and transferring it from one to    the  other   each    time    it. is; rubbed;  this  changes the bottom pieces from the bol-  tom to the lop and equalizes Lhe salting.     The plan of curing is to weigh  the meat    and  for each  one  hundred  pounds take four pounds of suit,  two  pounds'of. sugar,  1 prefer the granulated sigar becausb.it will mix easier  paper sacks and hang it in , an  airy attic. We have kept our meat in  this way for many years with perfect  satifaction. Often the sspare ribs,  back bones, and other pieces of the  trimmings, are kept until thoy become  spoiled, or the family eat to excess of  them because they do not know how  to keep th?m from, spoiling, but wo  find that through the cold weather  they' can bo kepL in a weak, sweot picklo, and will be as good as fresh.' Uso  the pickle recommended' above for (ho  fall, on<i pound of sugar, two pounds  of salt and three gallons of water.  This subject is so important that we  ought Lo hear from others about it and  especially as to (lis best plan for keeping sausage through the spring.   .  CHEAP POULTRY'FEEDS. '  When grain gets wet and becomes  musty or otherwise damaged, unscrupulous millers work it up inlo' mixtures for poultry feed, and we are  probably safe in saying that it is wise^  to avoid uhose mixtures for (hat reason. They are usually offered cheap  because thoy are "oheap;" and they are  cheap bcoause they are low in nutritive  value; that is, they do not supply tho  food elements which fowls require.  That is tho reason they are offered  cheap. Cheap food is poor food, and  tho man who feads his fowls cheap  foods, foods that aro poor in nutrition,  must expect them to bo poor fowls. A  fowl cannot lay eggs when fed on  these poor, cheap foods, and iL is folly  to expect them to. Eggs aro extremely rich, and to secrete the elements  which go to make Lhe egg, a fowl must  be well supplied with those elements.  Don't fed cheap food and expect your  fowls to lay well.   ,  a  Ui  i  Kit  \1 H  GRAFTING.  Tho question whether it is wise to  use for grafting' purposes the lengthy  shoots which often spring from lurge  limbs in tho ceuLre of apple trees,, was  recently asked Joseph Meehan. He  answers affirmatively, saying: There is  an impression that trees raised from  such shoots are longer coming into  bearing than those from wood from  other parts of tho tree; but who has  ever tried experiments to prove it ?  Some years ago, when rose growing  was being initiated on a, large scale,  it was a much discussed question  whether or not it was wise to propagate from the strong shoots from the  centre of rose bushes which grow and  grow, yet do not flower. It was decided by some of the largest growers  of that day that this blind wood is just  as good as any other part of tho bush.  Neither the water sprout of the apple  nor the blind wood .of tho rose is of the  nature of a variation. Both contain Lhe  essential characteristics of their types,  without  any  tendency  Lo vary.  Wero these shoots variations, the  result would be different. Many a tree  and plant does show branches varying .  in' character from the type, and, certainly, propagating from these shoots  would result In perpetuating Lhe variation. In many an orchard may be  found an apple or other 'fruit tree  which does not bear as well as others .  of its kind do. I should not caro to  progagato from such a tree. Varieties  have occurred in this way in 'ornamental trees, a branch developing  some new character, which ' nurserymen have fixed by propagating from  it. An apple branch may have diffor-'  ent looking fruit from the rest of a  tree without a Lhought by any one that  it is ii permanent change. Wore grafts  from this sort to be taken, in many  cases a new sort would be the result."  :  facture and sale, or 'can, less.-easily,'he  made,at home. ��������� Most of it is bought,  however, and it is chiefly used by the  countless factory hands ofi the Black  Country .'nnd''Lancashire.'

First, however, the meat-being  thoroughly cooled should bo rubbed  with pure salt a.nd allowed to lay one  day to get the blood out o������ it, and then  the curing process begins! which means  that the meat must be rubbed carefully with the mixture on- the flesh side,,  and; especially at the end where the  bone is,cut off.

Among the numerous names the Chinese have given to the noiseless steed  are " gogma,' meaning "a palh from  abroad;" " feitschai," or "flying machine," and " tsunlsun," which means  " auLomalio wagon." The more Limor-  ous are tho mos>t original, with Iheir  tiLle  of  " flying  dragon."  A Corn Photographed by X Rays  Shows a small hard kernel, covered by  layers of hard skin.

One   cannot   blame    the   Rossliind  ' Miner  for advocating the permum-nt  establishment of a school dor mining  in that city, us the first duly of a newspaper is to look well after the in tercets  of Ui'e town  in which  it is published;  but the government, which is supposed  to have no more interest   in one portion  of the province   than  another���������  merely a desire   to see   all   portions  treated according to deserts  and   requirements���������should look   on  matters  in a different light.   A school of mines  in this country, in principle and effect,  is very like   farmers' Institutes   and  dairying schools in. the agricultural  ,  countries.  No one would object to. a school of  mines having sittings in Kossland at  intervals, as the importance of the  place demands it; but urgent as may  be the demands of the Trail Creek district they are overshadowed by those  of the Slocan. There are, at present,  many times the shipping mines in the  Slocan that there are in Trail Creek,  and so far as human knowledge can  penetrate, the proportion is likely to  remain relatively large for all time.  As the government then gets relatively  larger revenues from the Slocan ; and  as more labor is employed here and  likely to be employed for all time,  from a business motive, it should see  that our interests are not overlooked.  No doubt Mr. Green, our representative, when he goes to Victoria will give  this matter his best attention.  The Province calls it the Martin-  Semlin government, and yet that print  says it does not want Grit and Tory in  the Loc.l House.  Slocan City Briefs.  The Ruth Mining Company are looking over the ground with the intention  of building a tram from the mine and  a concentrator within the city liniils,  somewhere near the site of the old C.  P. R. depot. They are asking the  council for exemption irom taxation  which the council should give. No  doubt, in a short time other mines  will be looking.for similar favors, and  it would be just as well to establish a  precedent as to how far the city is prepared to go at the outset. It must be  understood that concentrators must go  up in the gulch for eas> shipment on  the railways, and if they are not built  within the city limits, and they are  not likely to be if subjected to taxation, they will be built outside them,  thus distracting centralization, which  is required for many substantial reasons. If business places are built put.  side the city limits to avoid taxation,  it means:that later' the city limits will  be extended to include them, and the  larger our limits are made the greater  will be our outlay for streets, sidewalks, bridges, police force, etc.,which  every citizen desires to see avoided.  In exempting from taxation the city is  losing no revenue it now possesses, nor  one it would possess except at a heayy  price as we have stated, as' the .structures would be erected beyond the  reach of the tax collector. The more  of these institutions we get within the  city limits the niore families are  brought to the place, and these families will p*y'taxes aud other city revenues, even if the industries are exempt.  A clerk, named Finlayson, in a savings bank in Victoria, has stolen a few  'hundred dollars from the institution,  and at his trial it was urged in extenuation that his salery, ������550 a year, was  too small. This may be quite true,  but as the world is wide and he was  not forced into tli.e position, his guilt  is equally deep. It is much to be regretted that many of these monetary  concerns pay such poor salaries; but  as getting into them is regarded by  employes as improving their standing  socially, they must be held equally accountable. When some youths prefer  society and poverty to industry and  wealth, they must bear With the consequences of their choice.  ' From the-prophecies of the Globe  newspaper, it is apparent the negotiations for a reciprocity treaty with the  United States are going to end without  lesults. If they do it, is quite likely  that the general elections will be postponed.  f From the tenor of its utterances, we  are disposed to believe that the Koot-  enaian is likely o drift into a fully  fledged Grit paper, when the wars begin to wage.  Mr. and Mrs. TC. M. Teeter started on  iilondity, the 5th inst., for the State of  I own. where they expect to make their  home.    ,  Work on the Evening Slur mine is  progressing and with good results,  judging from specimens on exhibition  at the Victoria hold.  Dan Hanlon and Jno. Skinner paid a  visit this week to the Monogram claim  on Lemon creek, and had a chance to  try their snow shoes. Wo have not  heard their report yet.  V. C. Racklifl'has started for the new  town, Fisher, B.C., where he is erecting  a hotel and expects to piny the part of  genial landlord soon. We wish him  success in his new venture.  W. H.

By EDWARD JENKINS, M.P.  Author of " Little Hodge," " Lord Bantam/' "Ginx's Baby,"&c  CHAPTER IX.���������Continued.  But all her protiy designs, nil ihoso  bright mysterious hopes that seein with  the death of nature to grow livelier  in men's hearts under the blessed influences of the coming Chris! mas time  were chilled and killed at tho instant  when Lady Peakman's eyes met those of  Mr. Stillwater.'  Under all his disguises she recognised who that man was. Sho had .been  simply startled by tho first glance at  him on deck. But sho had persuaded  herself that there must bo some mistake. Tho horrible red hair and whiskers, the tinted eyebrows, the smooth-  shaven face, theso wore all strange to  her. The nose was pinched, there wore  crows' feet from (ho corners of the eyes.  The brows had become knotted and ferocious. Tho lips were withered and  drawn. But those eyes, there was no  mistaking them, when they had opened fully on hers���������when they came out  as it wore from their cunning hiding-  places under tho deep brows, and showed themselves in all their deadly brilliancy. Ho was alive, that sho thought  had been dead, and he brought with  him from the dead all that sh<v thought  had been buried with him���������the shame,  the sin, the sorrows, the hideous incidents of their so-called " married life.'  She was in an agony.  Latterly religion had been something  more than a mero fashion to hor. As  her dresses increased in girth and her  face became a more difficult problem  for her lady's muid, tho conviction that  there was another world began to  weigh upon her. The discovery of the  loss of physical grace is vory often the  first impulsion towards the grace that  is heavenly. She found a pleasure in  Gregorian music, in a sentimental,  well-tailored, wejl^millinered, well upholstered, well-embossed service. And  in the anguish of this night she strove  to pray ���������Let pity wait without during  those solemn mysteries.  At length she felt an irresistible impulse, tier brain was fevered. It  seemed on firo. She told herself that  the bold course was (he best. She  would go now, and see this man. She  did not know whore he was, nor had  she determined what to do���������but no mat-  tor. She must move. She could not  lie there any  longer.  Rising from tho berth���������staggering  from weakness and the ship's motion  ���������she threw around her a handsome  flannel robe, that lay there -ready for  uso. She turned to the door. But at  the instant���������it opened of itself slowly,  softly, and a figure with the rapidity of  a snake glided in, and, closing it, stood  before her.   It was ho.  It wis he, as she had seen him long  years ago, only aged by time and crime,  and shorn of his tiim moustache and  gay imperial. His black hair, parled in  (he middle, waved above his forehead.  Ilis whiskers were dark as before.  When he saw her up and dressed,  a smile transiently'stirred his features  and disappeared, as a sickly gleam of  sunlight fitfully darts along the black  face of a cloud and loaves ic all gloom  agtiin.  Sho did not utter a word. She stood  there, struggling to be mistress of herself, to call back the power that once  she had of half holding this man at bay  But sho was not able to recover it. She  staggered, and sank upon the end ot  the sofa, as far away from him as possible, and hid his face from her sight  with both hands. There cowering, she  spoke at him, but not to him.  " What do you want ? Where have you  come from ?"  "Silence!" he said through his teeth.  I " First," he whispered, " I lock the  door.  " Second, if you speak above your  breath again, neither of us leaves this  cabin   alive.  "Third, don't be a fool, don't faint,  don't jib, don't try any of your damned  tricks. Answer my questions. I know  all about you. I spotted you yesterday  morning. You are a clever woman.  The cleverest woman 1 ever saw. I never admired, you as I do now."  She shuddered.  " If T had had your steadiness of purpose, your devilish ingenuity, and your  self-comrol, by   ] don't know what  I might   not  have been."  She kept her face covered, her shoulder turned; but now, in lhe desperate  emergency, she was growing cooler, as  he became more excited. Her old genius, a wicked one, was coming back.  Could  she outwit  this villain ?".  " You thought I was dead," he went  on. " It suited my game to be dead  for awhile. I was married again, like  you, to a South American woman, and  I had an account of my death put. into  Galignani. You saw it', no doubt.���������  I'm-in luck,' he said bitterly. "I came  on board this ship a runaway and a  pauper, not knowing that X should  find the means of a handsome independence 1"  .   <��������� Well,  what, is it  you want 1"   she  said.  " Money,   of  course."  "Not so loud, woman, do you hear V  .He clicked the lock of' a pistol.  "You fool,'' she said, rising suddenly and facing him, with all the old fire  in her eyes, " Shoot me now, if you  dare 1 Don't I know, you wretched coward, that, you love that cursed life of  yours too well to risk it for good  or evil V ...',-:  She had gained a great deal in moral force, and dignity during the years  that had separated her from him, and  it told on his low dog's spirit with astonishing effect. His eye fell, and the  pistol  lay listless in his hand.  " Are you going to fire ?". she said,  pursuing her advantage. It was'a desj  perale game. "Put up llie pistol, or  I shall cull out," she added. He slipped  it into hi3 pocket, giving her at the  same, time a glance of terrible ferocity.  ���������  "There are quieter ways of doing it,  j madam," he said, with a cool sneer that  made hor shudder.  " Come," she said, sitting down, and  looking away from him. again. " Tell  me what it* is yo,u want 1 What do you  wish me to do ?"  " Exactly," ho said. " Let us como  to business. Your so-called husband is  a millionaire 1"  " He is pretty well off."  " He can afford to pay handsomely,  at all events, to save himself from a  blastod name.

He slipped' away like a guilty night-  bird. Before .stepping out from th?  narrow gangway bet wean the cabins,  h.i listened up and down the dark passage. At thi inst.int; i^ht-b'lis stiufk,  he heard th : whistle of the boatswain  calling out ths watch. He glided along  swiftly towards his cabin, which was as  we have seen, cmidships, just opposite  the engines. He had not cleared the  cabin passage, and still had to cross  the lig'hted spaes by tho miin hatch,  when he heard steps. A gang of sailors  were gelling out Ihs hose to sv,ill and  swab ths decks. Soma of the stewards  and galley-boyo had also turned out.  to begin ihe preparations for the day's  life of ths little floating town.  "I musi make a run for it," he mul-  (ere I to him;e f, as hs darted across tin-  lighted opening which lay between him  and his iberih. He rushed into the  arms of a sailor who was coming along  tha passage, way fiom ths forecastle.  "Avast there, shipmate!" cried the  man. "Where are you driving Iu?"  "Ohl" jepliud Mr. Stillwater, "I have  been attending to old Peakman, and  it's so precious c:>lcl��������� 1 was hurrying lo  get  into my berth."

"And  that I should hive Iwsn such a fool  as to tell him wluj I was."  Mr. Corcoran, "as the Amerioan said,"  is that your friends don't exactly know  where to erect the gravestone.

"She going to get  married ?"  Lord Peoidlebury, unable to contain  himself, laughed immoderately. A faint  echo cam������ from the adjacent cabin.  "Ah 1 I see, you're joking 1" cried Mr.  Corcoran, beginning to draw in again.  "On my honor, it's true," replied the  peer, recovering his gravity. "Tho  happy substitute is to meet her at  Portland; and they will be married before Christmas Bay."  "Will they?" cried Mr. Corcoran, in  a tone of thunder, as ho slipped out of  bed with extraordinary alacrity.  "Give me my trousers 1"  A silvery laugh again in tho purser's  cabin. Mr. Coccuran blushed land  looked foolish.  ��������� "Stop 1" said the young lord, highly  delighted. "Remember, my dear Corcoran, whatever steps you propose to  take, you have plenty of time. We are  only five days out, and we shall be  lucky indeed if wis get in under seven  more. Let me send you your servant,  and then I shall bo at your disposal."  ���������In three-quarters of an hour the  mysterious Mr. Ifex appeared on deck,  walking arm-in-arm with Lord Pendle-  bury.

Many passengers  thronged lhe deck, not lounging about,  but wrapped up in furs and woollens,  taking vigorous excrci.su. The sea had  changed its bright fresh hue of yesterday. It was now of a dull lead  color.

The London Daily Telegraph says:  What will be, when completed the most ,  powerful battleship in the wos-ld, wa������  launched recently from the yards oi  the Thames Iron Works and Shipbuilding Company. The now ship which is  named the Shikishima, lias been built  for tho Imperial Japanese Navy and  will constitute a remarkable addition  to tho already formidable fleets" that  sail. under the flamboyant flag of  Japan. There is no parallel in history  for the wonderful rapidity with which  the " Great Britain of the East" has  developed her naval strengl h, and since  tho close of tho war" with China (hat  development has proceeded at an accelerated speed. At present ships are being built for the Japanese Navy, not  only in this country, but. also in Frunce,  Germany and the United States, and  these vessels in overy-instance represent the very latest development of  naval science!1 The ships of the Japan-,  ese Navy compare favourably even with'  our own, and in the Shikishima our  friends possess a vessel whioh in point  of armament., speed, and protection  could outmatch any single' warship  afloat. At the Naval Review last year  one of the ships which attracted most  attention was the l''uji, a battle-ship  just completed by tho saine builders  who__so successfully launched tho Shikishima yesterday. This vessel; now in  Japanese waters, is almost as power- -  fully armed as our Majestic, and has  rather more protection.  THE BIG SHIP.  Tho latest addition to the fleets ot  Japan, compared with the Majestic,  carries1 two more 0-inch tfuick-fircs and  two more 12-pounders, besides having  a complete armor-belt from stem to  stern, as against the armour-belt on  our vessels, which only extends between  the barbettes. She carries, howuver,  only 700 tons of coals, as against: 000  tons; but as the Japanese have not, at  present at all events', a very widely  present "at all events, a very widely-  extended empire, the couple of hundred tons coal capacity is well exchanged- for the four extra gui������s, and the  additional armour. The fc'hikishima's  displacement is 14,850 tons. Her dimen-  sin3 aro: length over all, -138 ft.;  length between perpendiculars, 400 ft.;  extreme breadth, 75 ft. Gin.; depth,  45 ft. 2 1-2 in.; draught on 11,850 tons  displacement, 27 ft. 3 in. The armour  consists ot -a complete waterlino belt  of llarveyed nicklestoel 8 ft. 2 in., in  depth, and tapering iroin 9 in.' in  thickness amidships to 4 in. at the  ends.' Above this is a 0-inch belt of  tho same material between the barbettes and extending to th-s height of  the main deck. On the barbettes there  are 14 in. of Harveyed slefcl, and ths  bulkheads are 12 in. thick. 'Jhe engines  ljy Humphreys, Tenuant and Co.,1' aro  to develop 14,500 horse-power and drive  the Shikishima at a speed of 38 1-2  knots. Belleville boilers will be fitted  in the ship. Tho Shikishima is ��������� the  heaviest vessel ever launched from a-  slip. Her total launching weight was  8,250 tons, of which 7,800 represented  the weight of tho hull and the remainder that of the huge launching  cradles. In her armament (he Shikish-  iam is a remarkable ship. She is to  carry four 12 in. breech-loading guns  of 40 oahibres, arranged in pairs in two .  barbettes; fourteen 0 in. quick-firing  guns of 40 calibres ; twenfy 12-pounder  quick-firing guns; eight 47mm. 3-  pouuder quickfirers ; eight Maxims, and  five 18-in torpedo tubes, four of which  are   under  water.  A QUIET LAUNCH.  In view of the terrible disistor which  occurred at the Thames Yard a few  months ago, when her Majesty's ship  Albion was launched, the launch of the  Shikishima was made a comparatively  quiet affair. The public, ar-d even the  bulk of the company's owp. workmen,  were excluded from the scuno. A con-,  siderablo number of spectators collected opposite the launching ship on the  stone wharves adjoining the Trinity  House workshops. There were also a  few people on the jetty near lho mast  house, but the spectators in tho Thames  Ironworks yards were limited to tho  invited guests. When the spectators  had reached their alloted places tho  workmen beneath the vast hull began  knocking away,, tho shores thut kept  the. ship in hor place. Presently a shrill c  whistle echoed from somewhere down  in the depths below, the keel and Madame Kato, at the appropriate moment;  cracked a bottle of sherry on the very  point of the vessel's mighty ram; and  then, with a slashing blow of, a great  silver knife, severed the ribbon that,:  with many a cunning device of the engineers, held all the Shikishima 'a 8,00.0  tons uI".'rest. .There was'a moment's  pause, and 'then,, in obedience to, the  strenuous piilsc-of lhe irresistible hydraulic engine* beneath'our feet, the ���������  great" fabric began to move.

Wash, singo and draw a plump young  turkey, rub it with salt and pepper inside and out, and stuff it with lender  bread 'crumbs, moistened only with  melted butter or fat drawn from the  fowl. To a quart bowlful of crumbs  add a teaspoonful of thyme, or sweet  marjoram, or both, a saltspoonful of  pepper and a teaspoonful of salt, Mix  the filling well, and after it has been  pressed under the loose skin and into  , the body, skewer the fowl, draw the  legs firmly against the body, fold()lhe  wings under the back, and tie all firmly to position with plenty of clean cotton cord. Now grease the turkey well  with butter, olive-oil, or the like, dredge  wilh flour and place it on a trivet a  a hot oven to soar quickly that its  juices may not escape during the roasting proper. When the skin is well sear-  ed,_ lessen the heat and baste' the fowl  . frequently from a pint of hot water  turned into the pan' as 'soon as the  flour upon the turkey has been nicely  browned. An eight-pound turkey  should be allowed threo hours in a  moderate oven, and it may be dredged with flour a second time about an  hour  before it is to  be served.  In the meantime boil the giblets in a  little salted water, and when lhey are  done, remove them from the sauce pan,  ohop fine, and return to the water in  which they wero boiled. After the turkey has been lifted to" a hot platter,  turn the giblots and water into tho  roasting pan, and let tho gravy boil  Tho floor that has been basted from  the turkey will usually make the gravy  thick enough, but if this is insufficient,  dredge browned flour into tho pan until the gravy is creamy aa it boils up;  it will then be ready to serve. The  roasting turkey'will, as a rule, impart  sufficient seasoning to (he gravy, but  more may be added if necessary.  condensed milk,Is the best substitute  for mother's milk, and while it does  not agree with all, it has proved to be  the best food for tho majority.   .  LEARNING    TO    TALK.  Children learn to talk the language  heard about them, whether it be  chaste and pure or low and vulgar.  Therefore it behooves parents to take  care of the manner and substance of  what they say before their children,  and it is also very' clear that the silly,  nonsensical stuff talked to children is  not only very idiotio, but equally injurious. The conversational ability of  the young is being constantly educated  by the talk of others. Thoy should be  encouragod lo talk. The old idea was  that "Children should have eyea and  ears, and no tongue." Tho faculties  cannot be cultivated in that way. Children must talk, and must be guided  in their talk and conversation if they  are to become export in the use of  language.  Women havo tho faculty in a higher  degree than men. They are greater  talkers than men. , They havo stronger social feelings, which lead to tho exercise of this faculty, they are in society more; they . talk moro to children. ,' Women are more eloquent  than men. Men are engaged in business, in thought, and depress the faculty by want of exercise; while women", by exercising tho faculty, are  constantly strengthening it.  MINCE-MEAT.

This astonishing" statement was  made by him on Monday.   ' . i  He has just jiatonted his machine for  transmitting electricity without wires  He says ho can shoot thousands of millions of volts around and through the  globe without  metallic conductors.  "It is like a. tale from tho'Arabian  Nights,'" says the Electrical Review,  and, if successful, it will open up unlimited resources of practically costless power." /  If successful lt means that from the  grea( falls of .Niagara, of the Yellowstone, of Alaska, andi of the canyons of  Colorado unlimited power of millons  of volts can be delivered in New York,  London, Paris, St. Petersburg, and  Pekin in a second of time.

"     '  Teslai says.his'machinery works perfectly ; that lie has demonstrated the  seeming miracle beyond all possibility  of failure. '  "I can supply the Paris exhibition  with Niagara's power," he'said on Monday. "I shall send it across wilhout  a wire. My Invention is the crowning success of long years of thought  and labour." v '  Tesla went on to explain how he invents! He says he first discovers the  natural laws governing the secret he  is after. Then lie can predict just what  his mechanism, when' constructed in a  certain way, will accomplish.  When the laws controlling their appointed work ia tho universe havojjeen  once mastered,"the making of the pro  portion larger sums were expended by  him  where  taller  men  could be  had.  At one time  5,033 thalers ^and Sgros-Zpej.  marine to act in  harmony with  the laws, he asserts, is comparatively  paid for the Dutchman Grosse.

When Tesla discovered the laws lead-  That was in the days .when soldiers   lng up to the jnveution of hig famous  were  hired.

Between each terrifying  lightning stroke tho globe is penetrated and encircled by tho million-volted  foi.ee.  With this seemingly miraculously  endowed oscillator Tesla, it is declared,  instantly brings Paris and Hong Kong  within the reach of his hand.  'Tesla, without any wire or other artificial means of communication, uses  tho earth and atmosphere as his double wire, and'thus secures a complote  electrical circuit. He has a thunderbolt  producing machine, his famous " oscillator." Instead of producing a few  thousand volts used for electric lighting, propelling trolley cars, or killing  murderers at Sing Sing, it manufactures millions of volts.  HARMLESS,   YET  AWE-INSPIRING.  The. electricity is of suoh! a character,  it is stated, that when the machine fills  a room with jagged lightning, flashing-  and thundering in a tornado of fiery  ���������storm, it does not kill anybody, yet it  develops a force thousands of times  greater than the biggest ordinary dynamo   can   produce.  With this-machine, creating a pressure of millions of volts, -Tesla, says lha  lashes the vast ocean of electricity of  tho earth in a cyclonio storm. In  stanlly the waves spioad in all directions through the universe of matter.  In commencing upon Tesla's marvellous invention a noted scientist,  who has careful investigations  and places faith in its boundless possibilities, gave his opinion thus:-  "All the {Universe is a hig bag of  electricity.. When Tesla's thunderbolt  machine bombards it in New York, .rippling waves break on the most distant  electric horses of tho world���������in Chica-.  go, San Francisco, Siberia, Now Zealand, in the Philippines, "at" the poles  north   and  south."  CONFIDENT  OF  SUCCESS.  This is Tesla's claim, that the (electro-magnetic waves can thus be made  to sweep ivround and through the  world in an instant', and on this claim  he announces his ability to move the  Paris machinery by power generated  at  Niagara  Falls.  Many astounding facts in electricity  have been discovered. It originally  cost thousands of dollars for copper  wire alone to carry comparatively weak  currrents a few miles to move machinery. It was finally discovered that a  tremendous voltage could be sent on a  mere thread of wire, thus reducing the  cost   to  trifling expense.  Tesla first succeeded in transmitting  power'over one wire. Now ho claims  he abolishes all wires.

Giuseppe Cuzzi, ono of the 130  prisoners of the Khalifa, who were set  free by General Kitchener after his entrance into Omdurman, the English  authorities have obtained interesting  information as to the last days of General Gordon, which, however, had not  at last accounts been mado public. Immediately after the fall of Omdurman  Cuzzi was taken to Cairo, where he  was joyfully received by the English  and Italian residents. When liberated  he had in his possession important letters and telegrams from General Gordon and Colonel Stewart, which had  been hidden during his long captivity-  Cuzzi is fifty-five years old and , a  native of Brianza, Italy. ' He is a veteran of the Garibaldi campaign, and  fought with ihe famous patriot leader '  at Dijon. Ho also had part in,the war  in Herzegovina a quarter of a century  ago, serving on the staff of the Prince  of Montenegro. Later ho travelled in  America, and after his return to Italy  went to the Soudan as resident man- '  ager for a Milanese commercial society.  ��������� While in Berba ho met General Gordon, who formed so favorable an opinion of him that he made him his personal representative there, and also so-  cured for him tha appointment of Consular Agent for Her British Majesty.  After the fall of Borba Cuzzi was taken prisoner by the Khalifa and transported to Omdurman. Ho' was thrust  into a vilo dungeon, and for. a time  was subjected to the most cruel torture^.  One morning, to his great horror, a  company of der\ish soldiers appeared '  at the dungeon and ordered him to go ,  with them to the palace. Cuzzi was  seized with /ear and trembling, believing that he was to be put to death.  But, instead, the Khalifa, before whom  he was taken, received him kindly, and  after questioning .him closely informed him that he had 'been created  Muheddin of the Mosque of Omdun-  man. He was commanded to abjure  the Catholic religion and accept tha  Mihommedan, which he did without a  murmur. , .   | ���������   ;        \  LIFE IN A MOSQUE. ,    j  Cuzzi describes his.lifo at the mosque as lonely and monotonous, most oi  his time being spent in prayer.. Ha  was not permitted to converse with  those around him, and during all tha  years of his service as muheddin not  a word escaped his lips, except at rara  intervals in response to the commands  or inquiries of some superior. Upon  State occasions Cuzzi was summoned to  the palace, where, with Slatin Pacha,  he acted as guard at the door of the  Khalifa's apartments. Wh?n engaged  in this service discipline was somewhat  relaxed. The Khalifa seemed to be  proud of his while servant and showed  him attentions which created jealousy  on the part of his dervish attendants.  But although the occasional absence  from the mosque served- to relieve  somewhit the strain upon his mfnd  and body, Cuzziu declares that ho  never for a moment knew what happiness.was or felt   his life secure.  "In all the sixteen years"of my captivity," he said lo the Sirdar, "there  was never a day on which I had food  enough to sarisfy the gnawings of  hunger, and whit little dura I- managed to get in addition to the meagre  rations served to me as food I had lo  beg. Opportunity to solicit alms was  given mo at certain times, usually during somo religious celebration, which  may have lasted several days, or upon  ths anniversary of tho Khalifa's birth,  Th?n I was allowed the freedom of (ha  town and the special honor of being  permitted to beg for food was conferred upon me.  "Many times the dervishes threatened to kill me, and would have done so  but for a liltle chaplet worn around  my neck, nnd which had been presented to me by the Mnhdi. Seeing that  sacred treasure ths dervishss would invariably  CRASH  CURSLNG   MM.  and,  falling upon  tbair  knees,    would  venerate mo as n sin ik."  ln Omdurman. in friendly hands,  Cuzzi has left a little daughter of foui  years���������the npp'c of his eye. The child  is white, although its mother was colored. English officers wh.i luve soon  the tot n-rorl. tint sho is remarkably  pielly and likely to develop into a  stiikingly beautiful uoui.in of the Italian lypf.  Speaking  of  hi* daughter, Cuzzi  related   an   incident,   which   shous   i hat,  baib.uian though he bo, the Khalifa is  noi wholly devoid ol" gentle sentiments:  When ths child'was boru-'to Cuzzi Ihe  Khalifa  was .acquainted with his good  fortune and granted  him an audience.-  "Your Ilighness."- said Cuzzi, "what  name shall  l give my daughter?"      :.  Wilhout n  moment's hesitation    tha  Khalifa askea :���������  "What was your mother's name?"  "Maria,"  replied Cuzzi.  "Well," 'said'the Khalifa, "so, let   it' .  be. with this Utile girl.    Give her your  mother's name."  And this whs done. Cuzzi will soon  return to Omdurman, and from thero  proceed to his old home, in Italy,..accompanied by his daughter.
