FIVE CENTS.  ftWhat Strangers See When They Yisit  kr        Slocan's Great Camp.  ���������;'\ .      ,      ' .  K  THE LAST CHANCE TRAM.  Many new improvements in connoc-  I'ftion with working of mines have been  fi\^made in Sandon lately,   notably  the  '.Vtonstrnction of the Last Chance aerial  !,gravity  tramway.     The   building   of  this tramway was started in Septem-  fi\ ber last, and it is now completed and  ' Sin excellent working order.   B. C. Rib-  'let, of Sandon, who' has been most sue-  |( cessful   in the construction   of large  Kjimachinery plants throughout the Slo-  ly'can and elsewhere in the Kootenaya,  t[} designed and constructed this . one.  ? j The length is 6,300 feet between term-  il> inala, from the mine to the Kaslo &  IViSlocan B'v Cody branch, wbli a fall of  i'}; 2,700 feet. At the upper end the tram-  ?Jv way crosses several slides in one single  the centre of which  ,above the ground. The  .. 'tram' 'ray has four, lines of cable, of  Jv^which'two act as tracks or carry ropes,  ���������iV.-aBd the other two are continuous or  LJj' way orossua stsvei..u  &>.' ������pan of 2,800 feet,  E^-is over 750 feet abo  A'������'haul roper  !',''* attached.  to which  the  buck'-ts are  Each bucket carries   1,200  to  f'(-  F>  \\ i pounds of ore, and there are 12 of these  on the line.   So evenly balanced is the  ���������mechunism tliat a. mail can "move or  ^ !atart the same with the pressure of one  ^, hand.   The ore buckets are self-dump-  '';Oing,  and only one man is required to  ^operate the  entire tramway.   At the  kV* Sandon end have been built ore pock-  ,,'ets, with a capacity of 200 tons, and an  \ore crusher, operated by a water wheel,  A , "'ir crushing the ore into suitable size  t'Jf for sacking.   The crushed ore is drawn  V off into sacks direct from the ore bins  Uand loaded aboard cars, so that prac-  '(  tically speaking   from the time that  ,, the ore is  taken down in tho'mine to  ' the time it   goes aboard -the   cars it  ', travels by-gravity. ' Another import-.  pant feature is its carrying-up.'capacity;  '' Buppliee   and  small  material can   be  : placed in  the buckets, but for the big  ,; mine timbers   Mr. Riblet   designed a  special timber carrier. ,   -  '     THE RECO JUNE.  J.M.Harris,   managing director of  the Beco Mining & Milling company,  says the Beco this season will only be  mined in a limited way until it is put  in a perfect state of development.  The  y ' past summer bodies of extremely high  ���������"���������'grade ore were opened'up in the main  J' and intermediate drifts in the Nob. 2,  4 and 6,levels.   This ore is now  being  7 taken down.   But the principal work  "is being done in the  running of the  1   No. 8, or lowest crosscut tunnel, which  i   is now in about 1,000 feet, and it is  ,> confidently expected that the lead will  -, shortly be encountered.   This will give  1' them an approximate depth of GOO feet  '   on this rich ledge.   The mine has been  '   employing a force of 22 men, which  '- Mr. Harris expects shortly to increase  to 45.   Asked if   the company  would  pay a dividend, he replied by saying it  '   would be for the board to decide.   He  '? believed if they   were .to force shipments, with the amount of ore already  blocked out, that the mine could easily  pay a larger dividend than its last, of  ������100,000, representing 10 per cent, on  the capital stock.  AT THE A.TAX.  The Ajax Mining & Development  company, of London, Ont., owning^the  Ajax, liandom Shot and Crown Boint  claims on Noble Five mountain, are  developing two veins by a series of  four tunnels. It is reliably stated that  they."-have considerable in sight and  shipments may' be "made this winter.  Twelve men are employed:  THE SOVEREIGN" PROPERTY. ���������  During the past year, under ;the  management of B.C. Eiblet, the Sovereign has been undergoing continuous  development work with a force of 10  men. The lowest workings of the  mine have reached a depth of 500 feet.  At this depth a crosscut tunnel is now  in oyer 400 feet, and it is daily anticipated by the manager that the lead  y������ill be struck. ' Only the clean ore  taken oilt in the process of development has been;shipped���������amounting to  two cars per month���������while on the  dumps and.in the ore bins are, at least,  400 odd tons *of concentrating ore,  which will probably be treated at the  Noble Five mill. The property is  owned by the Slocan Exploration &  Development company, and the intention is to merely block out the ore before commencing regular shipments.  "��������� 7 AT THE NOBLE FIVE'.  .-.On'four of" the eight claims owned  by the Noble Five Mining coaipany  ���������development work has been actively  pushed the past six months. On each  ������f these claims tunnels have been run,  showing up good ore. It i3 now the  intention of the management to run a  crosscut tunnel on the Noble Five  claim, the completion of which will  give a depth of 3,000 feet from the  apex of their lead. The m;ne is employing a force of 3" men, using three  drills for working p-.;n)r>?es, so that  good progress is bcin;.' mnde. The  tramway is in excellent working order,  and recently the mill was worked on  some of the ore taken out in course of  development, the amount run through  giving a pioduct of 20 1-2 tons of concentrates, which were shipped to the  Great Falls smelter for- experimental  purposes. Should the tests to be made  prove satisfactory it is not at all unlikely the mill- will be kept running  on a small scale.  'Lying between the R. E. Lee and the  Last Chance properties is the Ajax  Fraction, that has recently started the  driving of a crosscut tunnel now in a  distance of 75 feet.���������Correspondent.  The Lamentations of the Gilgalites.  Parliamentary Gossip.  Victoria, Jan. 16.���������Never in the  history of the provincial legislature  have there been so many resignations  of members, and certainly neverhave'  there been so many rumors of pending  resignations. Following on the top of  Messrs. McPhillips and Hall for Victoria, there came, on Saturday the  statement quite'current on the street  that Hon. Premier Semlin and Hon.  Bobert McKechnie wero both going to  resign, the first named on account of  his h'aving sold hav, to a road gang at  his ranch, the last named because he  had accepted coroner's fees. There  proved, however, to be nothing in  either of the rumors, and both were  contradicted on ihe authority of the  gentlemen most intimately connected  with them. Then came the rumor  that ex-Premier 'turner was disqualified for selling blankets to the government for tho Now Westminster fire,  and that also was contradicted. Now  to-day it is announced that Col. Baker  will not take his seat, pending his satisfying himself that he is not disqualified by having sold land for a townsite  to the government.  ���������   = -���������" '������jaa������ :���������  The Bosun Is a Mine.  W. H. Sandiford, of Now Denver,  manager of the Northwest _ Mining  Syndicate, who are operating the  Bosun mine", has received a report ef  the first general meeting of the shareholders, held last month in London,  England. It is most encouraging, and  will help to turn British capital in the  direction of the Slocan. The company  is spending about ������3,000 per month in  operating the Bosun, and is taking out  about 120 tons of high grade ore, yielding about ������8,000. The syndicate purchased the property last June for  825,000 and up to date has shipped 480  tons of-ore, which netted about SGS  per ton, or ������32,640 in all. The big ore  chute has been tapped by the No. 1  tunnel, which has been run to connect  with the main shaft.  Poor Men To Be Stopped.  Superintendent Steele, commanding  the Northwest Mounted Police in the  Yukon district, has issued the following order, dated Dawson, November 18,  189S:  "The commissioners of the Yukon  territory order that no person will be  permitted to enter the territory without satisfying- the the Northwest  Mounted Police at Tagish and White  Horse-Bapids that they have with  them two months' assorted provisions  and at least $500 in cash, or six  months' assorted provisions and not  less than $200 in': cash, over and above  the monoy required to pay expenses  from the border to Dawson.  "N.B.���������rThis order will not apply to  residents of the Yukon territory returning, if they ^re identified, and  prove their competence to pay their  way into the country."     ^  And it came to pass that certain  members of the Tribe of Gilgal became  tlisatisfied with their lot.  A few of these counselled together  and said :  Let us go forth into the heart of the  great mountains, peradvuuture we  may find a goodly heritage in gold and  silvet; .  And they all with one accord agreed.  After many days they  came to   a  place that is now called Kislo, and  they pronounced it good, i  They again counselled together and  said, Let us go still further and see  what good things the land possesses.  And they all-with,one accord agreed.  After many days they sojoumedby  a stream with high hills on either side,  and thev said one to the other, Let us  explore these regions' and see if there  be any good thing hidden therein.  On a certain day one of the forerunners exclaimed in a lo'iid voice: Come  hither! Come hither! Behold the  treasure we seeketh before our eyes.  And they all with on^^ccord danced  for joy.     " *  They further counselled together  and said, one to the other, Let us abide  here.  And San the son of Don, who was the'  foremost amongst them, said, Let it be  even ao.  And they called the place" Sandon,  which it has even to this day.  They forthwith sent the glad tidings  to their brethren, and many flocked to  see what great things had been found  by their brethren.  The peoplgs came from the east jtnd  the west, the north and the south in  great multitudes.   ,  They built themselves houses and  said one to the other, we have a goodly  heritage.  Even with this ].rosperity they became dissatisfied and said one to the  other, Let us form councils aiyi make  laws, for who shall govei-ri us'oxcept  ourselves.  Howbeit some wiser than the rest  said: Nay it were best for us to be  cautious lest we become a tax-ridden  people.  And there was much dissention  amongst them.  A few, however,* possessed ,of the  sheklcs said, it shall be as we say, let  us meet in secret lest those who know  more and with better gift of speech  put us to shame.  They forthwith counselled together  and said let us have Ather the son of  Ton as otsr leader, for know est thou  not that he is easily ho id winked and  slow of speech, we can use the shekels  to our advantage.  And they said it is good: Let us  build Humes.  And David, the son of Jesse, rose up  and fearlessly said, You do wrong to  my brethren the multitude.  But they barkened not unto his  voice.  And after   one year the multitude  began to cry out,   Surely we are burdened with tithes beyond our substance.  And there   was   great  lamentation  amongst them.  And the Elders counselled together  and said, Surely wo have done wrong  and brought do>vn the wrath of the  people on our heads.  Let us remove Ather, the son of Ton,  from our head and put him in a lower  seat in our councils ; pcradvonture the  wrath of the multitude will be appeased.  And so it was as tliey commanded.  Thus endeth tho first chapter of the  First Book of the Chronicles of the  Gilgalites at Sandon.  Jeremiah.  freed from costs ns it was the aldermen  who owned it and not the city If.this  is true the costs are'on the aldermen  who owned the Hume.  Some will now contend the city  should not offer to buy it, unless sold  for a moderate figure. In any case the  first step for the owners of the flume  is to gut a special act through tho  House legalising their interruption  ol the bed of the stream and the work  so far done. With this done they will  have a legal chattel tu offer to the -jity  council, and the people can vote the  money to purchase it if they think  proper to do se. On the other hand if  the by-law started out with a falsehood, alleging the intention was to buy  the flume and that the city does actually own the elephant, they will have  to get a special act through the House  legalising the alteration of the bed of  the stream, and either legalise the vote  of the people taken, or ono that may  be taken for the purchase in the future.  In either case on act will have to be  passed in the House with this two-fold  application, and when the bill is being  drafted it is well that it should rigidly  provide for the extension of the flume  ���������is it is just as necessary it should be  extended up Cody and Sandon creeks  and to the west side of the city as that  it should have been built at all. Whatever course is taken it should be taken  at once, as no one knows how long the  House may be in session. It would  not be amiss if the people were consulted to ascertain what they considered best in the interest of the city;  for after all it is their'wiBh that must  prevail., '    ,  iVPINES AN0IVIINENG.

The certificates of the declaration of  office made by the members of the  board and signcd.by W.H.- Lilly, P.M.,  were received and filed.  COMMUNICATIONS.  From J. V.

McDonald  G. Campbell has sold the ^Fidelity  Fraction fwr 51,000 cash to G. H. Dawson.  Over GO head of horses and mules  are at work among the mines of Sil-  verton.  It is understood that a deal is on for  the Donnelly group, hear town;' but  whether it gops through or- not remains to be seen.  Mr L. C. Lane, ��������� this city, hag pur- '  chased the mule train ������f Anderson &  Brady, of Silverton, and secured the  contract of hauling the Wakefield ore,  which may be a car a day if it can be  handled.  ��������� Last week Silverton sent out 100  tons of ore. If Slocan City was only  doing likewise,' and ir. has plenty of  properties to do it ii worked, it would  add much to the present importance  of the Slocan.  Those who ought to know say that  sufficient capital will, be available in  Che spring, through Toronto parties, to  build a new short trail to the Camer-  onian, and place it in good working  order.   The property is a good one.  The citizens cf Slocan City are taking time by the forelock in circulating  a petition asking the Local government to make an appropriation to  place a collection of ores at the London Expositiou this year. This is  right. Nothing has done as much to  make the Rossland camp what it is as  advertising. There is evidence on  every hand that, dollar for dollar, more  money_ has been made out ot investments in the Slocan than in any other  portion of the known world, and capitalists every where,should be advised  of this. The Slocan is a very heavy  contributor to pioviiiciai revenues,and  the Province ought to meet the district  liberally in tuis modest request.

Word reached the city Thursday that  Squire Loyatt triumped, and the flume  by-law was upset in the court at Victoria with costs against the defendants.  The Hon. Joseph Martiny the attorney-  general, told some Sandonites there  was no chance of its being upset which  goes to show even Joseph don't know  everything.

The whole matter is, however, now  in a muddle, and the question is what  is best to be done. lithe by-law itself  in its first paragraphs told the truth,  that the money was required for the  purchas of the flume so far constructed  as well as extending   it,   the   city   is  ship-  Eam-  McGuigan, Jan. 19.���������The ore  ments during   past week were :  bier mine, 30 tons ; Dardenelles mines,  16 tons; total 46 tons.     7 ;  Tom Lester, foreman of the Bambler  mine, had his hand badly jammed last  Monday afternoon while attending to  a pump, and it is feared he wUl lose a  finger.

An, obstinate tightness in boot or shoe can  usually lie remedied by applications of  cloths dipped in hot water, either while  the shoe is on the foot or on the last.  When boots have become thoroughly  soaked with water, fill (hem with dry,  warm bran, and lace or button them  up tightly. Suspend them in a warm  place, not too near the fire. The bran  will absorb all the-moisture, and can  be shaken, out afterwards, while ��������� the  leather will bo soft and pliable, and  not so likely to crack as if dried in the  ordiriiry way." When dry, the leather  should be rubbed with neat's-foot oil  ������'������/������/������/���������������  On tk Farm; ^ i  CARE OF BOOL'S AND SHOES.  The woman who allows her boots and  . shoes to take care of themselves, so lb  speak; is by no means, a rara avis.. In  sharp contrast to her Parisian sister,  -  who makes a point of being bien chaus-  see,   she   often  spoils  the  effect   of   a  dainly costume by appearing  in footgear the reverse of respectable, out of  shape, down at heel, and often,  when  -.of-patent .leathery disfigured' by several cracks.   Nothing could be in worse  taste, and these glaring  defects could  have been prevented, in.nine cases out  of ten, by the exercise of a little forethought,   outlay   and  discrimination.  It is by far the best plan to have several pairs of boots and shoes in wear  at one time. A boot' which will fit  the foot comfortably on a cold day or  early in the day will feel much too tight  when the foot is enlarged somewhat  by heat or exercise. Easy ones should  be at hand to suit the wearer's require-  ; ments, and will consist ot (hose which  , have already seen some service. Boot-  trees are also a.sine qua non with the  woman who desires her footgear to retain its ���������, pristine shape during the  whole of its existence. They are to be  had at very low prices in these days,  and will soon repay one for the outlay. When boots and shoes are not in  uso, they should be carefully fitted on  their respective boot-trees.  When boots are to be cleaned, all  rough dirt should be brushed off with  the dirt-brush, after the worst of it  has been removed by means of a piece  of soft wood, and not an old knife,  as sometimes recommended, for this will  scratch and cut the leather. A blacking mixture is then applied, and this  is followed by the use of the polishing-  brush, which must; be used lightly and  rapidly, so as to avoid the premature  drying of the blacking, If the boot be  placed on the tree, a very,high polish  can thus be obtained, and is far preferable; to, many of the cheap glosses  to'be purchased for' application with  a sponge, as these, unless of undeniable quality, will cause the leather.'to  dry and crack A very good blacking  may be made by mixing four ounces of  ivory-black, 'three ounces of coarse sugar, a tablespoonful of sweet oil, and  a pint of small beer. Another equally  good one is made by mixing two tea-  spoonfuls of spermaceti oil,.'half a-pint  of vinegar, three ounces: of molasses,  and . four ounces of finely-powdered  ivory-black,, adding the vinegar last.  A good waterproof mixture is composed of ono ounce.of beeswax, one  ounce of turpentine, a quarter of an  ounce of Burgundy pitch, melted over  a slow fire, with half a pint of oil. Be  cautious  with   the  turpentine.  Patent leather requires only ,a little  milk and a sponge to remove the dirt.  When not in use it should be kept in  .a' warm temperature, cold causing (he  leather to crack. A little cotton-wool  stuffed  in   the   tips  of  patent   leather  DAINTY MODERATE DISHES..

Properly interpreted and followed, chapter first can mean nothing  else but grafting ��������� new, vigorous scions  onto the old stock. Or, in cattle parlance, it is infusing fresh blood into  the dairy through milk breed sires, and  then establishing as an inexorable rule  in the heifer calf department, survival  of tho fittest only. Invest or breed  into Ihe best strains of cows attainable, feed them .on tho most,perfect  milk-producing food you can raise;  try the business a year or long enough  to give it a fair trial, and if you find  you are losing money, beat a graceful  an impossibility to improve on the  kinds, there is always room for something better, hence those who find  seedlings coming up about their premises or who are thinking of endeavoring to raise some, should not be discouraged. Many persons lose heart in  the raiding of seedling fruits because  of the hyrigtb of time it takes'a seedling to bear, writes Joseph Meehan.  Fruit from a. seedling pear or. apple  could not be looked for under about  ten years, letting the trees grow in the  ordinary way. When this is consid-  iered, together with the thought that  after all the fruit may be worthless, it  ia no wonder that but few of bur famous fruits aro tho result of planned  production. Take among apples the  Baldwin, Spy, Smokehouse and Smith's  Cider, ruid among tho pears Howell,  Seckel, Lawrence and Sheldon, and we  have a list altogether composed of accidental seedlings.     We find in peach'  left over after a crop of clover is harvested being sufficient to provide th6  supply of humus. Another point is  in the use of lime, which should always  accompany' the turning under of any  green manorial crop, as it promotes an  alkaline condition of the soil and induces rapid~ chemical changes. It may  be ttated that shading the soil both .  in winter and summer, assists in" the  formation of humus, and if is believed'  that the dens?, shading of the soil by  leguminous plants has much to do with  the restoration of fertility.

A story relates to Princess Beatrice,  who, when a little girl, used to play  al. <o iking. She had on one occasion  made some cakes which were more  th'in usually bad, and   all her   friends  dulge in a thorough dairy-house cleaning, and that is fall and spring. This  should include the whole farm, and particularly the stable and its surroundings. To put cows into a stable this  fall thai has not been propsrly prepared  for their reception, may mean the complete failure of winter dairying profits,  Warmth, ventilation, and cleanliness  must be assured as primary factors, or  no success can be hoped for. For the  average dairyman, with the average  s table; this means that he has yet to do  fcomething at once in the way of repairs or alteration, to set his business  i.n order for winter. Now, in the bo-  ginning of the teason of good prices,  production to 'reap tho benefit of those  prices can only be obtained through  conscientious  dairy  work.  PRESERVING SEEDLING FRUITS.  While it. is quite true that. in' many  lines of fruit there are already such  a great variety  ��������� that   it seems almost  will sometimes exceed the value of the  manure, and as a ton of manure will  seldom to worth over two dollars, so  far as its plant food value is concerned, it will depend largely upon the location of the farm as to the advisability of purchasing manure, while  much of the manure produced from  stables consists more largely of straw  aiid other absorl>ent materials than of  manure, which lessens its value proportionately.  Every farmer can restore' fertility to  the soil, by the. use of fertilizers, and  his expenses for;hauling'and spreading  will be reduoad to a minimum.

Thti Piincess Royal, now the Dowager Empress of ' Germtiny, was, as a  child, overbearing in hor manner to  servants, ,an:l the queen frequently  puniFhad her for speaking rudely to  (hose  who  waited  on  her.  'On one occasion the Duke of Yoik,  th.'n a lad, was severely reprimanded  by the queen before a number of people for an inconsiderate remark made  to a servant. s  "The result of her wise training,"  writes a member of ths royal household, "is that the royal family make  the best masters and get the" best servants in the world. Until the day  of her death, the Prince of Wales  visited his old nurse, while the young  Duchess of York never omits,'when she  is at White Lodge, to see those humble  folk who wore kind to her : in child-  bcod. Many of the most lo .-ing - and  thankful words ever added by ��������� Hci  Majesty's own hand to the 'Court Circular' have been tributes of esteem and'  gratitude to some good servant who  has 'gone before.' "  A strange institution, but one that  works admirably, was orgahizodby the ���������  qu^en an.l Prince Albert early in thsii  married life at Windsor Castle.

He  , always sat in the same spot, with bow-  -ed head and a crayon in his hand. Be-  ���������side him were the pictures ho had  ���������drawn, no mere daubs, crude in color,  and sketchy in treatment, but real artistic gems. Strange that a man of  genius should be reduced to   this.  She was young, beautiful and, wealthy. 'What-could she have in common  with a street artist, however great his  talent? She did not like poverty, sor-  ��������� row or affliction, in any shape or form.  If it came prominently before her she  stepped aside with a shudder; .it undoubtedly had the power to ruffle momentarily the surface of hor lotus-eating existence.  To-day she had a better opportunity  of examining, his work than she had  'ever had before. She had been passing  an idle hour in the park at a time not  'consecratod to fashion, and as she  ���������sauntered through (he gate on her  homeward way her eyes rested upon  some of the artist's recently completed  sketches,  and lingered   there.  Five minutes���������ten minutes passed���������  and still she i remained chained to tho  spot,-her gaze fascinated by the scene  beforo her. It represented an old-fashioned churchyard, with' a little ivy-clad  ���������church nestling among tho tree's. But  it was not' upon the sacred edifice that  her eyes were riveted, but on a gravo  which, from its beauty of design and  somparativety recent structure, stood  ��������� -apart from the others, which were all  more of" less in different stages of  ��������� -decay.  The artistr following his own poetic  ��������� fancy, had made three studies of i the  grave as it appeared is summer, autumn and winter. The first showed  it almost smotliered in flowers. Climbing 'roses clambered over the base and  wound about the exquisitely oarved figure of the angel, who stood erect with  ���������outstretched wings and ��������� hands pointing to the skies. In the next sketch  .no trace of the roses remained, but in  their place the tomb was strewn with  withered leaves, emblematic of the de-  ���������oay of life's hopes. The third showed  the leafless branches of the trees, waving in ghostly fashion over the windswept taonument, which now stood  alone' in stately grandeur, unhidden by  any earthly shroud. The gleaming figure of the angel, denuded of all earth's  favors, still pointed triumphantly upward in reminder of the life everlasting, which was still further exemplified by the inscription, " Till the Day  Break," which" waa carved in rateedlet-  ters on the pedestal.  The heart of the beautiful woman  was stirred with a strange emotion. She  had! not seen the original for ten long  years. c  "You seem to know1 thispart of the  country well,' "she said, addressing the  artist, who looked up startled as her  musical tones fell on his ear. " This  is .certainly a faithful portraiture."  "It ought to be," he remarked, "the  design was executed by me.'"  " By you ?" she exclaimed, amazed.  " Surely not 1 That was the work of  a   rising  artist   already  famed  in  his  ,   profession, not "  " Not by a street'picture maker who  craves your charity," he roplied, with  a touch of bitterness. " You are right.  But strange as it may appear, I, too,  was once honored and respected, but  I had the misfortune to be unfortunate.  It is a crime that the world never forgives'.'  He> drew his sombrero still further  oyer his eyes, but not before she had  time to notice, than his handsome, hag-'  gard features, bore traces of, refinement, and that his voice had a cultured ring. After all, it was none of her  business, she argued; yet, as she dropped a coin in the box, her eyes still  rested lingeringly on tho pictures.  " I���������I like these," she said slowly, unwillingly almost it seemed. " I know  this part of Cornwall well. What  would you charge for three duplicate  copies  of  the  sketches ?"  "- Mydays of fixed prices are ai thing  . of the past,'- the artist replied with cold  courtesy.   " The remuneration  I would  leave entirely to you."  " Very well. Bring them next week  to this'address. Wait,' I will-put an  hour, so that you may find me home."  She handed him the card, and with a  slight   inclination   passed   on.  Gilbert Gerard's heart was filled with  bitterness, and���������curious' anomaly��������� the  more so when on examining the box  he found a bright gold piece among  the pence and halfpence. A previous  . glance at the bit-of pasteboard had  shown him that it bore, the name of  - Mrs. Vivian, and that the address was  Eaton Square.  He faintly remembered the name as  that of a brilliant beauty who had first  dazzled the fashionable world some! ten  years ago, and he saw that she was  now in the zenith of her charms." .  For 'the next few days he worked  hard at tho sketches," though, of ''course,'  not entirely deserting his old haunt,  and, on the day appointed he took them  to Mrs. Vivian.        ���������     '  Shn received him graciously enough,  but Gerard, who was sensitive to a  "fault, winced at the shade of patronage, which he fancied he' detected in  her nnnner. He thought she would at  least l/es/ow a word of? praise upon his  norV, which loft nothing to be desir  ed from point of finish of fineness of  execution. But in this he; was doomed  to disappointment, for she glanced at  them  carelessly  and laid  them  aside.  Gerard felt a cold chill steal over  him. Yet what could he expect? This  was a woman of the world, and her  emotions must necessarily be of a transient nature���������here to-day and gone tomorrow. He thrust the closed envelope  she gave him savagely into his breast  pocket, and did not open it until the  following morning. ' Ho certainly had  no reason to complain of want of generosity as he fingered^ the notes, which  amounted to ������20. He gazed at them  long, buried in profound thought, then  a wild longing came over him to escape from his shackles and buy back  self-respect and" all that made life  worth   living.  Ho pondered long into the night, and  it was not until the first rosy streaks  of dawn illumined the heavens that  he laid aside his briarwood, and stretching himself, upon his camp-bedstead,  fell asleep. Ho was a man of impulse.  Once laving made up his mind to a  certain course he never wavered in its  fulfillment, and from henceforth his  "pitch" knew him no more.,. That  week1 he modeled an exquisite portrait  of his fair patroness from memory, and  begged  her  acceptance  of  it.  Even the spoilt, beauty felt a thrill  of pleasurable emotion as she noticed  the subtle flattery expressed in every  curve of the medallion. She compared  it' favorably with portraits' of herself  by two of the most eminent academicians, and felt that it would be" ungrateful not to' give Mr. Gerard sittings.    , , ,       _  " Who could have imagined you were  such a genius ?" she said laughingly,  some weeks later when the 'picture was  nearing completion. Gerard, in his silk  blouse, and irreproachable get-up, with  all tho paraphernalia of art surrounding, him, and, the .aristocratic air, .of  " Royal Kensington" permeating the  tasteful studio, seemed altogether a different order of being from Gerard the  street artist. '     ',  He painted on assiduously. Mrs. Vivian glanced at him_ curiously, hor interest in him growing deeper. , She  wished to,lift the veil of mystery which  surrounded lthis man, who'was.so different from the satellites which revolved around her, and of 'whom sho  grew so weary. Thero was, something  grand in his air of stern ^lfrrepres-  sion, she thought, although she would  have wished him to be more communicative.  "Wilt you think me'very impertinent, Mr. Gerard, if I mention something that has been exercising my mind  for some time past ? It is this. On the  first day I ,.made your acquaintance  through seeing the sketches you had  drawn of- my father's grave, and expressed my surprise, you replied that  the design had been your. own.   Now,  lor which spread over your face; that  was enough._for me."  Mrs. Vivian blushed as she cast at  him one of her speaking upward  glances. " You are always making  wonderful discoveries," she remarked,  " I wonder what the next one will be?"  " Shall I tell you ?" asked Gerard,  meaningly, gazing at her with all his  soul  in  bis  eyes.  But the beauiy shook her head and  vouchsafed no reply. He must have enlightened, her, however, on a subsequent occasion, for some months later  society was' electrified at the news  that the lovely Mrs. Vivian, at whose  feet princes had languished in vain,  had married an obscure artist of whom  they had never even heard.  But Mrs. Gerard was sublimely indifferent to praise or blame. When a  more than usually venomous remark  reached her ears, she glanced at her  handsome husband and delivered herself of the following aphorism: " To  the/ discoverer belongs the benefit of  his' discovery. If I discovered your  genius you discovered my heart. I put  it to the world which was the greater  feat of the two ?"  A NEW QUADRUPED.   '  An Animal Rrsemnltngan Ant-Enter Fonud  . In l'atngonln.  In these latter'days, when people are  constantly hearing of tho threatening extinction of various tribes of animals, tho news of the discovery of  an entirely new species of quadruped  is startling. ' The fact of the existence of'a, hitherto unknown animal  has been brought to light by Dr. Flor-  entino' Ameghino, who for some timo-  past has had reports of ��������� a mysterious  creature of nocturnal habits brought  to him by several Indians and a few  years ago the late Ramon Lista, while  hunting in the interior of Santa Cruz,  was startled by the .appearance of a  strange animal, which he described to  Dr. Ameghino "as a pangolin without  scales and covered with reddish hair."'  Lista shot at' the creature, but it was  apparently bullet proof for it disappeared into the . brushwood and although instant search was made no  trace of the animal was to b8 found.  As no further evidence was forthcoming,' Dr. Ameghino'was inclined to  think that naturalist's had been deceived, but ha has just received a  skin from South " Patagonia which  proves that Lista was correct in his  statement.

The Princess of  Wales knows all about scientific dress  cutting, and another princess was not  long ago initiated into all the mysteries of the professional hairdresser's  art. "There is no better judge of  needlework in the kingdom than Princess Christian," says the writer referred to. "Many of the designs used in  the Royal School of Art Needlework  are from the clever pencil of Princess  Louise, Marchioness of Lome. Princess Alice, mother of the present Empress of Russia, used to cut her child-  aen'a clothes and trim their hats in the  far-back days when she was Grand  Duchess of Hesse and was suriounded  by the   little ones.   Princess Henry,of  studio,   and   in  a   very short    time 1  learned   tho    reason   of   my   so-called  friend's  kindness  and generosity.

He was a man of great  plausibility  and  succeeded  by  dint  of  puteh   in  getting n good many  orders.

On tho same day '  T- was  driving a   .very    fidgety mare,  when suddenly she bolted on the brow  of a hill, and I was pitched out.on my  head.

My   long   illness  had  cost   thousands,  for it took the best men in London to  pull   me   together,   and  their   charges  aro not modest.   This coupled with an  unlucky investment, completed my misfortunes.   The few friends I had made  deserted  me,   as   friends  are   wont   to  do, and genius, if it pleases you to dignify my efforts by that name, is worse  than useless without money and.without influence.   If I   had    pointed out  statues  in   public  places as  my  work  I should have   been  openly  ridiculed,  and   people  would   have said  that, my  mind   had   not   recovered   its   bnlinno.  And so'I. drifted on to what you found  mo,  a man   to  whom  existence  was  a  living death.    You rescued me from the  slough  of despond,   and my  future is  yours to mold as you will.

Domesticity has not proved a  bar to culture in the > case of  any of these highly placed  women. The Empress Frederick of  Geimany is one of the most intellec-  tu il and cultured women in the world,  but she is also an adept in the domestic arts. Sho is a sculptress and can  cleverly wield the brush, as well .as  her sister, the Marchioness of Lome.  So here is a shining example in high  places. And if we take a step down to  duchesses, marchionesses, etc., we  sh'ill find that bluo blood is usually  associated with a taste for true British domesticity. The Duchess of Aber-  corn can sew beautifully,' The Duchess of Sutherland can cook and make  a. gown. Sho often designs hor own  dresses.

As I made this request a joyous look  came into her face, and her large blue  eyes shone with "delight; and as tho  dimples deepened in her cheeks I beheld a pictuie that was worth going a  long way   to see.  " What, Billy? Oh, he's the nicest and  best little.fellow in the city!   Why, he  is goodness, sunshine, and inusio all in  one lump. Somebody let him diop when  ho was quite young andl broke his hip,  and ever  since he has been  a cripple.  But his leg is the only crooked thing  about h.in.

Oh, I     shall  never forget  his    words    as he    said:  'Dear, Lord,    I've    never      complained  about my broken hip, and I am willing  to go through   life with it, but I can't  get on    without     a crutch.

Well,. while I was wondering  I saw my geranium, and then I said:  'Oh, maybe I can sell it! andget enough  to buy another crutchl'  "Now you know who Billy is and  why I want to sell my. geranium.  Won't you please buy  it?"  I was greatly moved and interested  and I'll own up to a great) deal of moisture about my eyes, as I inquired:  "How tall is Billy?"  "O," she quickly responded, "I've  got the measure of his old crutch, if  that is what you mean."  "Yes, that is just what I mean; so  if you please, Gertrude, we'll go and  see about  a crutch." ,  It did not take us long to find a  store  where  such  things  were to,  be  PHYSICAL CULTURE FOR GIRLS.'  ���������  The need of the day, is for a higher ,  physical development of girls and youngr  women.   The world  Has  moved  along,  and  the  fair sex" to  a certain  extent,  havo gone with it, so says 'an exchange.  But it has been rather an intellectual  development   than a physical one. The  women ' have "stepped   into   the  places   -  formerly  occupied  by men,  and,taken  all in all have held their own very well.  But in this they have shown only their  mental capabilities.    There can be little  doubt  but  that  physically women  have  been  comparatively    at  a standstill.   There is,  to be sure, a move in  the   right   direction,   but   it  will   take ���������  a long time to  effect a permanent or  far-reaching  result.  Girls do not sacrifice either maiden,  ly modesty or refinement by indulging  in athletics, and tho  tendency should  be to encourage exercise that will develop  a more  rugged  constitution.  In  this way girls will find themselves pos- ,  sessod    not    only    of     the   increased  strength   necessary    to  support   them  during I.Qie days when they are called  to business occupations, but they will  have the,strength to'sustain the burdens and trials of wifehood and mater-    '  nity, and of all the responsibilities of  home making when that important time  shall arrive.  Therefore, girls go in for all tho  training you can stand, and if thero  are enough, club together and have  meetings at each other's homes and  study and practice home athletics, and  whenever an opportunity affords take  ib out doors, for that is the most valuable.  HUMILIATING A RIVAL.  It is not a mooted question in Parsia  whether women "dress for the eyes of  men or those of women, as there only .  women see women, at parties.     In her,'  book,  "Through Persia on a Side-Saddle," Miss Sykes, writing of the women  of Teheran, the capital of Persia, confesses that ever Mohammedan isolation  does not    prevent women from  being  envious of other    women if    they are  dressed better, than  themselves.     Sho  writes:  1 was told that many of the fine  ladies would give large sums in the  European shops of Teheran for any  brocade of silk which struck their  fancy, and would wear it at the next  party to which they invited their  friends, flaunting the new toilette ostentatiously before them to fire their  jealousy. ,  Usually, however, one of the guests  would pay her hostess our by buying  some more of the same material, and)  having it made up for one of her siav-  women. She then would invite a  large company to tea, and ihe cupM'  would l>o handed round "by a negresa  adorned in the rich .silk with which  the former hostess is arrayed.  Later on the slave would, dance before the gu?sts. Tho. great'lady, who.  had been invitjd to be mortified, would  be both disappointed and huniilated.  The lady who had given tha party  would be pleased at vexing the rival.  EXPENSIVE SPARKS.  According to one British firm, who  are famed all over tha world for their  minufacturo of fireworks, the amount  spent,  on the  display  of  fireworks  in  connection  with    Her .'Majesty's. Jubilee was $130,000.   The display at  the  close  of the Crimean  War cost: $500,-  000.     Tha    largest  individual    exhibitions by tha  firm  wrere  given  on  the  Tagus for tho Portuguese Government  tha .second in 1888 costing ������50,00!"), while  thai first, which was made on  tlie occasion of ihs marriage  in  188(1 of- the  King, (hen Grown Prince, of Portugal,  cost half that amount.    The display at  Delhi, when the Qu������.Fn was'proclnimed  Empress of India,  cost   ������17,500.   Some  of (he most costly fireworks are those  produced at the Crystai ifalace.   Thus,  at  a  benefit  recently,  the    exhibition  lasted from 30 to  35 minutes,  but    it  co:t ������7,500, or about ������250 per minute. ttbe fining "Review  SATURDAY JANUARY 21, 3899,  ' IN THE JUNGLE.  The Toronto Mail and Empire basi s  an editorial on tho report of the mining outputs of the Slocan and Trail  Creek districts that appeared in The  Mining Review, stating that "the Slocan remains the ricnest producing  mining region in British Columbia,"  and the Rossland Miner says, ''this is  palpably an error." Tlie Miner will  not question   tho   statements of The  Review because it knows   we are on  the spot to prove what we say;  but it  does question the same statements in  the Mail and Empire, because it thinks  fc'that   that   paper   may  not have the  figures at ready command  to   verify  what it says,   The Mail and Empire  told  the truth in every essential, and  we advance the pi oof.   The Rossland  print says that the output of the 24  Slocan mines in 1898 was but $2,550,-  669.   The Miner took for its foundation  the shipments via Kaslo, but they are  not all the shipments of the Slocan,  there are the heavy C. P. B. shipments  to be taken into account.    The total  shipments of the Slocan last year were  31,254J tons, and Mr. Carlyle placed in  his 1S97 report the value of its ore, at  present prices, at $110 per ton, which  would represent ������3,437,995 for our total  against ������2,804,758 given by  the Miner  itself as the   total value of the Trail  Creek output that   year.    Here is a  .difference'" of $633,237 in favor of the  Slocan.   Will the Miner show wherein  this is untrue ?   If it cannot, the Mail  and  Empire  figures   remain  unchallenged.   It is true the gross tonage is  84,614  in favor of  Trail Creek,   but  what does that amount to?   It is values in ore   that capitalists are after  and not tonage of rock.   Slocan ore is  worth,  at present prices, $110 a ton  and Trail Creek ore   is  worth S24.03.  ' Here is where the importance of the  Slocan comes in.     Because the Trail  Creek division exports a greater bulk  of ore than ike Slocan does, the Miner  says :  . "From these comparisons it will be  seen that the Mail and Empire is  wrong in its deductions that the Slocan  division is the richest producing district in British Columbia."  No honorable.print would resort to a  misleading dodge like this. It is infinitely better to acknowledge dofeat_  and let the world know it. Itossland  is a good camp, but the one-half of its  greatness is the result of advertising  and blowing���������that of the Slocan is the  result of its shipments and cash returns therefor.  When the Mail and Empire say:*  that the Payne pays more dividends  than all of the ItcsslanJ mines put together, it tells the naked truth, and we  challenge the Minor to an honest comparison. Let the Miner deduct all the  costs of producing its ������2,804,758 worth  of ore, till the net results are known,  and estimate the percentage of profit  on the actual money sunk in its properties, and it has then a fair comparison for dividends with the Payne's 91,-  450,000 of ore produced by 100 men on  a property that cost but SS0.000. If  the dividends are not manifold in favor  of the Payne, we will at once yield the  point. Come, friend Miner, either go  into the figures at once, or acknowledge that Ilossland's superiority consists of newspaper -wind, which the  outside world is gradually commencing to learn to be the fact.  tin's calibre   would do  this,   but   he  should not have been, in his perversion  of   the   statutes,   supported    by   the  l-loii.-o.

'THE B. C. LEGISLATURE.  The B. C. government, on Wednesday of last week, passed a Bill declaring   J. D. Prentice the   member   for  Lilooet, though the supreme court was  to have sat on his case  a day or  two  after, and would, if the representations  are  correct, have   declared him  not  elected.     The petition  against Prentice's return sets forth that his name  was not on the Provincial Veters' List.  Now, the law of the province distinctly  states  that no man can be eligible for  election to the House whose name is  not oh the Voters' List, and, of course,  Joseph Martin,  the   attorney-general,  knows this.   His Act, then, is simply  declaring a man to be a member, who  was  never eligible for election; and  this was done to save his government  from defeat.   How can a man���������an attorney  general���������who,   of  all   others,  ought to respect the law, expect the  public to respect  the statutes of the  country  when he himself  knowingly  tramples them under foot for political  prestige.   -No one but a man  of, Mar-  It is generally thought that on account of the present  advantageously  friendly relations between Great Britain and China and Japan,  the British  I government   will urge   the   Canadian  government   to disallow any British  Columbia Acts restricting the operation of  mines here   by   Chinese and  Japanese   labor.

Great Britain   and   Canada are both  interested in seeing British Columbia  properly settled and our mines properly worked,   both of which are an impossibility, if white labor is to be subjected  to the competition of Mongolians.   The employment of these people  simply means     the   starving   out   of  white labor.     The   British Columbia  government   and    the  B.   C.   people  should show the Canadian-government  aud, through  the latter, the Imperial  authorities, that they cannot afford  to  have the industrial   interests of  this  province ruined for the purpose of appeasing a'sentiment   elsewhere.   No,  Great Britain   will have   to patch up  peaceable understandings with China  and Japan through some other avenues  than   the   ruination of industries   in  this Province.  of the hardship. They have themselves an alien labor law enforced for  years that has, time and again, debarred Canadians on the frontier from  working across the lines. This being  the case they cannot cry loudly over  retaliation. For our part we would  like to see reciprocity in labor as well  as in ores, and many other iines; but  if tho Americans first shut their gates  they cannot well blame Canadians,for  following their example.  | The D. & L.  ,, EMULSION  TheB. &L.

Tho first. English woman  who studied medicine und received a diploma was Siiss Elizabeth Black well, who  graduated at Geneva college, in Nsiw York  slate, in 1840.

It  was Nature's intention that woman should be  vain of her personal appearance,  and the woman  who fails of this  fails of her full  womanhood. No  woman should be  satisfied to jro  through the world  with a complexion made hideous  by unsightly  blotches, pimples  and eruptions.  No woman should  be satisfied to  have a sallow,  sickly complexion.  The remedy for these conditions does not  lie in cosmetics. Skin disease is caused by  impurities in the blood, and by nervous  disorders due to weakness and disease of  the distinctly feminine organism. Doctor  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the  greatest of all known blood-purifiers. It  not only drives all impurities from the life-  stream, but fills it with the riph, life-giving  elements of the food. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription acts directly on the delicate  and important organs that bear the burdens  of wifehood and motherhood. It makes  them pure, strong, well and vigorous. A  course of these two great medicines will  transform a weak, sickly, nervous, despond-  ent woman, who suffers from unsightly  eruptions of the skin, into a healthy, happy,  amiable companion, with a skin that is  clear and wholesome. These medicines  are made from herbs and roots, and contain  no minerals of any description. They simply assist the natural processes of assimilation, secretion and excretion. Medicine  dealers sell them.  It is a druggist's business to give you, not  to tell you, what you want.  "About four years ago," writes Thomas Harris, of Wakefield Station, Sussex Co., Va., "my  daughter Helen was afflicted with eczema in a  distressing form. Dr. Tierce's medicines cured  her after all other remedies had failed."

Washing  dishes is  the " bete noir"  of a housekeeper's life. She dislikes to  ' do dishes herself,  and  her daughters  Inherit  the dislike.   They all  imagine  In  Ihe first place, that it " spoils the  hands," which is heresy, pure and simply.   Using a lot of soap, running out  in the cold with damp hands, shovelling coal into the grate without gloves  ���������all these tend to ruin the hands. But  dish-washing,    properly  done,    softens  them.    The dishes should be gathered  up,  cleaned  of all  scraps,  and  neatly  piled on the dish table.   Oceans of hot  water will be necessary, but not a scrap  of soap till the pots and kettles come.  Silver comes first. Pile in the dishpan,  nnd pour on scalding water, stir about  with the dish mop, stand in the pan,  pour on more boiling water, and wipe  on a dry, clean towel, and so on (hrough  the list, throwing out each pan of water and using fresh hot wator for each  new' supply of dishes.    The hot water  takes off    the    grease,    and    rinsing  makes the dishes shine.    When it comes  to   washing     the   ironware,    set   each  greasy piece on the stand, and fill wilh  hot water.   Lot this simmer a few min  utes   while  putting   tthe  other  dishes  away.   Then  take the kettle mop and  rub tho iron things briskly, and throw  the  water out.   More hot  water, ,;ind  if  scraping   is  necessary   use  a thick-  lipped   oyster  shell.   More  hot   water,  with good, pure soap in it, and clean  mop, and the iron things are soon cleaned.   The real .secret of easy dish-washing is plenty of hot water and clean  dish cloths and mops.   These should be  washed   and   rinsed  and  hung  out   in  the air after each using.  ribs in, place a frying-pan over the  fire, rub a little suet or lard over the  bottom of the pan, put in the chops and  fry about five minutes on each side  over a medium hot fire; cut large  apples into thick slices, with paring  on (hem, lay the chops on a hot plate,  put tho apples into the pork fat, and  fiy till done, without breaking; mix  one teaspoonful butter with one-half  teaspoonful salt and one-fourth tea-  spoonful pepper; spread it over the chops  on both sides, equally divided; lay the  apple slices on top and serve.  ���������'   '  >   i  WHEN TOTS TOE IN.  The little tots who are inclined to  "too in" when they begin to walk  can havo this fault quickly rectified if  attended to in time. The mother or  nurse should rub at least twice' a day  tho outer side of the little legs with  a firm upward stroke. This can be  done regularly when putting baby to  bed and at such other limes as convenient. When the little one climbs  into your lap for a "cuddle" or a  story is,a good time. Hold the little  foot in your hand in the correct position. Recollect, do not rub down and  not on tho inner sido of the leg. The  object is to nourish and strengthen  the outer muscles,- which are proportionately weak. Begin below the  ankle and rub to tho knee, slowly and  quietly, but not too lightly. This  treatment faithfully persevered in  .will soon correct the trouble.  SOME ASSWHtS TO EMS.  BRIGHT  REPLIES, MADE   TO   ROYALTY BY THEIR  SUBJECTS.  '  A ItcKgiir's Answer to a Queen���������Quick Ke-  piu-tce of u Subject of Frederick the  Great lu Germany.  A verj small proportion of us are  unlikely to feel more than an academic  interest in- the subject of replies to  royalty when royalty makes embarrassing remarks. But some samples of  clever ' rejoinders culled from different periods will instance the tact which  has been bestowed upon some lucky  individuals.  And tact is about as rare a quality  as you will find in the generality of  mankind. Genius there is a fair amount of. Cleverness is widespread,  but '���������ot���������that Ls one of those things  which far as a vast majority are  concerneu ��������� is as Lord Dundreary used  to say in tho remote 'past, "one of  those things no fellah can understand."

However, the  officer's reply was marked by genius,  "Sign 1" he simply said, holding out his  ed, gasped���������then laughed and signed.  ,The experience, however, was not one  to be repeated.  Another man also scored off Frederick. This was Zimmerman, i tho  physician who attended him. One day  the King pleasantly remarked to him:  "You have, sir, I suppose, helped many  into another world?" "Not so many,"  .replied-the -witty .doctor, "as; your  Majesty, nor" ��������� allaying tho rising  wrath���������"with so much honor to myself."  Jumping over the intervening time,  one may here chronicle ono of the best  replies ever made by George Colman,  This.was to George IV., when Prince  Regent.

OZONE IN CLEAN CLOTHES.  Almost every person has noticed the  peculiarly refreshing smell of clean linen, especially when just removed from  the lines. But few people are aware  that there is any connection between  fresh, cool linen, just from the outside  air, and the ozone of an apartment.  The Lancet contains an article? on  this subject in which it is stated that  the atmosphere of an apartment may  be charged with ozone by bringing into  it damp linen sheets that have just  been exposed to a dry, sharp wind;  bringing them into the house and  shaking them or waving them about  tha air of the room will, according to  the statements made, change the character of the air. ,  This is a matter.of importance to invalids, who often become exhausted  from lack of ozone in the air they  breath. A means so simple and effect-  ire, and th.it is within tho roach of  every person, should be generally understood. It seems that all that is  necessary is to bring the linen to the  room 'immediately after it is taken  from the lines out of doors and shake  and whirl it about when the character of the air will be altered at once.

School time is trying to tho children.  Mothers, be watchful and careful that  their health be not impaired.  In the first place, make it a rule that  a sufficient amount of nourishment be  taken at the morning meal.  If daughter comes down, and, after  sitting at the table a few minutes,  says: "I do not want any breakfast,"  do not allow her to go to school with  . an empty stomach. Arrange something appetizing with your own  hands, and insist that she take it. A  slice of toast, with a poached egg, or  a cup of beef tea will be sufficient, but,  all else failing, insist that a glass of  milk  be  taken. ���������  If the children aro obliged to carry  a lunch, be sure you make it as nice as  - possible. Have clean napkins, and all  the dishes as attractive as possible.  Wrap the sandwiches in waxed paper,  that they may not dry, and instead of  filling the basket with rich cake and  pie, substitute ripe fruit. A cup of  custard is nice, or a little glass of  jelly. I know one mother who fills  small tumblers with jelly for her  children's lunch. Deviled eggs are  nice for* a relish. Do not allow pickles, but give them lemons if they cravo  acids. .  , I add one suggestion as n result of  my personal experience. While children arc attending'school, send them  to bed early. Thoy .require more  sleep. If you find they are irritable,  with apparent cause, you may make up  your'mind that an insufficientarnount  of sleep is the cause.���������  DOMESTIC RECIPES.

He  was "again asking some favor for another���������in which respect his habit was  certainly unlike those of most of his  confreres���������and the queen peevishly asked:, "When will you cease to be a  beggar, Sir Walter?" "When Your.'  Majesty ceases lo be a benefactor," I  was the satisfactory reply.  An equally   fortunate   reply   to the.  same  monarch,    who,  to quote  Charles II., who was  of   the   burly,  Walpole.     And  really a  WITTY IF DISREPUTABLE  monarch, was also tho cause of wit in  others. The reply of Waller, who  was told by he king'maliciously that  the panegyric he wrote on his restoration was inferior to that he composed  on Cromwell's Protectorate, is high  art: "Poets, sir, succeed" better in fiction  than fact."    ,,'"  ,  The Iron Duke made, or is said to  have  made,  a very judicious reply  to  Lord' George IV., who in his later years was  Bcaconsfield, in the matter of flattery   ??^V&1 f'^\d ^ ">at he had led  ,.,    , , ' ,       ., . ,       J    J . the    victorious    charge  of    the    Life  liked people to    lay it on with a tro-| Guards at Waterloo, and on one occa-  wel," was made by one of the foreign  ambassadors.      He was asked by    the  Queen , the embarrassing question  which of the court beauties he most  admired. He got out of his difficulty  swimmingly. "Madam," said he, ,"it is  hard to judge tho radiance of stars in  tho presence of the sun." Thai adverb swimmingly, by tho way, reminds  us of a reply made by one of his Ministers to an early Portuguese monarch,  who put himself into  AN  ULTRA-ROYAL  RAGE  at some opposition to his will, and  abused his Mini-tcr furiously, winding  up by telling him that if he ordered  him to jump into the sea he was  bound to do so. The wary official  neither assented nor dissented, but  glided toward tho door. "Where are  you going ?" he bellowed, "To take  lessons in swimming, sire I" was the  reply, accompanied by a courtly bow.  Frederick the Great was a "dour"  monarch enough, and not the sort to  become the whetelone of anyone's wit.  But there is on record an answer made  by an anonymous officer which "scored" very neatly off the autocratic sovereign. This officer, as is not uncommon, had a grievance���������thought he  was unfairly kept unpromoted. His  services were distinguished. So was  his "cheek," if that expressive word  may be used. He filled up a commission for himself, waiting only (ho  royal autograph, 'and when the king  rode by  IN HASTE AND IN A BAD TEMPER,  held it out, saying, "Sire 1 Only one  word I"  sion at a State dinner appealed to the  Duke in support of his own statement.  "I have often heard your Majesty "say  so," waa the indubitably correct reply.  Lord Chesterfield, who is popularly  supposed to be merely the author of  the famous letters and a man of fashion only, but who was a statesman,  wit, and orator of the highest order,  neatly countered on one occasion" the  furious George II., who wanted an appointment confered on his own nominee, while the Ministers insisted on  theirs. At last the King roared out:  "Give it to the devil, if you like I"  "And," said Chesterfield, blandly, "is  the instrument to run in the'usual  form: "To our right trusty and well-  beloved cousin 1"  Louis XIH. of France on one occasion experienced a sufficiently neat rejoinder from a courtier who had been  sent as ambassador to Spain, and who  on his return to Paris was mentioning at court that a superb mule with  splendid caparisons was sent to him to  ride into Madrid, "Ah, a fine sight  that I" said Louis, while the courtiers  ail laughed in chorus: "an ass on a  mule I" Quite correct, sire," was the  smiling answer, "I was- representing  your Majesty I" It does not appear that  the daring of the reply entailed any  consequences, which shows that wit  was potent even in the absolute court  of France."

For special  honors in this line maybe pointed out  the discoverer of thai wonderful remedy, Dr. Williank,; Pink Pills for Palo  People.        Recently the case 'of    Mrs.  Maggie  Brunette, of Chichester, Que.,  came prominently  under  the notice of  the   Observer  reporter.    He felt it  to  be  his duty, on hearing of Mrs.- Brunette's restoration from prostrate illness to health,  to interview the    lady  and record her experience for the benefit pt others who may need the healing  influences of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Mrs. Brunette's farm home was found  to bo very comfortable and even elegant,  located near (ha base  of an   immense hill, an outguard of the Lauren-  tian Mountains.

She is i'l years of  age now. Her husband, the late Chas.  Brunette,  died 14' years ugo, and after  his death  she worked very hard - for  some  years,  with  the result  that  she  became completely run down, so much  so    that,    although    quite ��������� tall, '-   she  weighed  only about 90 pounds.

At jList shr  thought she muat -have been' attacked  by cancer  of _the  stom:ich,  so. violeul  were Lho pains that constantly harassed her.   She  consulted the best  physicians and spent more than a hundred  dollars in  treatment and medicine,  in  addition to which she spent  nine weeks  in    the    hospital    al   Pembioko,.    But  withal she was ill four years and despaired of ever being well.   Fir.  Ilyvsh1  decided " to    give Dr.  William.,''  Pink  Pills a trial, and accordingly, she procured six boxes.   Althuugh liiey benefited her    almost    from  Ihe time she  began taking them,, she kept ion taking  tho pills until she had  taken  sixteen  boxes, and then felt that she was completely cured,-the pill accomplishing in  three    months    what    four    years   of  medical    treatment    had failed to do.  From    that   time, ��������� nearly three    years  ago.   Mrs. - Brunette has been in good  heallli,    needing  no    medicine.   "You  can  see,"   said  Mrs. Brunette,   as   the  reporter was departing, "thall) I am in  perfect health, I attend to all my household work, and the dairy and poultry,  and have  a large number  of cows  to  milk.   I never fail to suy a good word  tor Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills  when  I  have an opportunity, for they did wonderful things for me."

It is called the "amusement tax,' and was instituted a  year or two ago to found an institution foy the poor, under the title of  the ."Empress Marie Foundation." Ihe  tax is laid upon every amusement ticket sold, and the managers raise the  price accordingly. Already more than  1,000,000' roubles have been raised in  this way.

Our city youth sighed in vain the  past few days for a breath of zero, but  it came not, and the pretty carnival  euits had to be laid away until Friday.  Feb. 3, unless, in the meantime, Jack  Frost and the rink managers agree on  a postponed date.  Sandon curlers hare been rustling  the past week or,two to select the best  men for Rossland. Finally it was decided to take two rinks, Hood's and  Grimmett's, as follows : Hood (skip),  W. Wilson, D. J. McLachlan and W.  Karr; M.L. Grimmett (skip), A. Crawford, Rev. A. M. Sanford and I. Craw-  lord.  The Rossland Miner has not yet  mustered sufficient courage to say that  the yalue of the output of ores of th������  Slocan in 1898 exceeded those of the  Trail Creek division by SGOO,000. It  spoke of the output of Trail Creek as  being "enormous," and surely an enterprising paper like the Miner ought  to be on the alert for newiritems that  exceed what it calls enormities.  The dance given in aid of the Junior  Hockey club on Tuesday evening last,  was, as was expected, well patronized.  As the .orchestra gave their service's  gratis and Mr. Harris the use of hall  free, besides other favors, along with  the tall hustling of the youths in selling tickets, the affair netted about  ������65.00.

The Nelson clergy are asking for a  law to prohibit Sunday mining. Why  not tackle the Sunday gambling in  their ojvn cit}' first, which is certainly  less useful than Sunday mining.  There was a time when railway operation on Sunday, waa denounced; but  now it is found to be quite necessary  on at least transcontinental systems.  Public opinion is changing in many  essentials.       .     o      ���������  ���������������������������. -������������������ . '���������>  From appearances thebestthing the  provincial government can do iB pass a  proper redistribution measure, dissolve and hold a new election. So far,  on the opposition side Messrs. Baker,  Turner, Hall iind McPhillips, and on  the government side Messrs^ Semlin,  Hume, M!cKechnie andTisdale, are  reported to have resigned because of  business dealings one way or the other  with the government. . Two other  members are in by special legislation  and one constituency vacant by death.  If it runs this way there will soon be  none left but the people's "Bob" and  Joe Martin, and thev could not possibly swell into a quorum.  Tho people of Cody and many of  Sandon to the number of 120 are petitioning the government, through Mr.  Green, for a grant to open a trail from  Cody up Cody creek, across the divide  to the source of the south fork of Knslo  creek. This is a much needed trail,  and, if built, would doubtless soon connect with Kaslo- the other way, and  very much reduce the distance between Kaslo and Sandon. There is  also no reason why an appropriation should not be made for improving  the road between here and Cody. It is  much to be regretted that an expenditure has not before now been made on  the road between here and Cody, which  is somuch.travelled. This immediate  district giyes-more revenue to the provincial government than any other  district in the country, and so far the  attention paid to it is practically nothing. By placing the circumstances  fully before the House, Mr. Green has  a strong lever in his hand.

We'understand  he got the best of.cncoufagement from  the business people of the place.  The people of Kaslo must be exceptionally good. ' Our curlers were to  have gone down on Wednesday and  have cleared out everything in the  place, but Providence willed it otherwise as a thaw came and broke up the  ice. They wired our warriors just in  time to save the trip.  It is generally regarded as a certain  ty that the K. & S. R'y will be extended  to the Slocan lake the coming spring.  The line is surveyed nearly to New  Denver, and the company are stirring  themselves to purchase the.^right of  way. If tho work goes on it will make  good times the coming spring.  As there are different opinions  abroad ua to who owns the flume so far  ���������the aldermen who built it or the  city���������the point ought to be settled before any further steps are taken. On  several occasions ex-Mayor Athcrton  told parties that the mayor and aldermen built it, and the money to be  raised under the defeated by-law was  to purchase it. If these are, the facts  it is the men who own it that should  put the Act through ..the House, legalising the work so far clone. Then a  by-law could be submitted to the people asking them to vote sufficient  money to pay the price ihe thing is  worth. It would not be amiss to have  all the accounts connected with it  pioperly audited. If they were found  correct the taxpayers would the more  readily vote the money. Even though  the work was begun wrong," as the  courts have shown, no ene can desire  to see any of the aldermen stuck on  .any fair bill from which they should  be relieved,-but the bills should be  right. ���������  At the first meeting of the new  council on Monday night, it was  decided to dispense with . the.serv-  ices of day policeman Waite on  economy ground only. Wo think  this is. a mistake, and that the council  will come to consider it so later.  As a matter of fact in a place like this  there must be one official around all  night for fire and other emergency purposes, and it is just as certain that the  place cannot run open all day. Of  course for some months the place has  been as orderly and quiet as any model  eastern place; but this is to some extent owing to the general knowledge  that there were officials abroad at all  hours. The knowledge that there isrio  official around; during the .day may  have' an influence the other way.  There is not a man on the council  board but is bound to do the best possible for the place, in the light of service as well as economy, and, under  the circumstances, a return to the old  service.may take place again. We believe economies that will be taken up  at tlie next and subsequent meetings  will pave the way for the re-engagement, of Mr. Wnite. '  ''.Kbit OVER Fit TV YKAltS.
