Array *s,  \  1  VOL 3.      NO. 7.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 22, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  118  Action Against Col. I. N. Peyton by  a Woman Claiming to Be  His  Spokane, July 17.���������A most sensational suit was begun to-day in the  superior court of this county. Colonel  I. N. Peyton, until recently president  of tho Exchange National Bank, owner  of the big Peyton block and identified  with a number of mining companies  in the northwest, is made defendant in  an action brought by a former.wife  now.living in Denver, Colorado.  The woman's name, is Helen M. Peyton, and she recites how Col, Peyton  came to Spokane under the assumed  name of Colonel Ceurge H. Morgan and  acquired considerable property. It is  further alleged that he ''pretended to  marry another woman named Victoria  Houghton," and is now unlawfully living and cohabiting^, with said woman  as his wile.  Allegations of fraud are made  against tne Colonel in the settlement  of a former action. Suit is now begun  by the former wife to recover one-half  of the property of the Colonel, which  . is estimated at'over ������1,000,000. The  complaint in the case is one of the  most sensational of the kind ever-filed  . in Spokane count}'. It recalls the  early days of Colonel Peyton's operations in this city and his subsequent  acquisition of-a. fortune.  The complaint, which is of great  length, in substance, relates that the  plaintiff and Colonel Peyton were married in Champaign county, Illinois, in  1869, and that she is still his lawfully  wedded wife. ' For nearly 10 years thrry  resided in Colorado, when Colonel Peyton took her to St. Louis, where he left  her r.'id started out west to seek, as he  said, a new home, when he would send  for her.  She never" heard olhim again  until  189(5, 'when she learned that ho  was residing  in Spokane under, the assumed  'name oi   Colonel George H.  Murga.ii,  and that tie  had pretended   to marry  tho woman witn wnuJi  lie is uaw living.   She instituted  legal proceedings  for a  settlement upon lier of ono-hali  the community properly which iie hud  acquired to provide means for her support, when he gave her ������3,000, alleging  that he only owned  ������0,000   worth   oi  property.     Subsequently   she learned  that he was  at  that time vested   in  property   greatly   in   excess   of   that  amouiii, and  that since thai time she  has been informed that he has acquired property, including valuable realty  in   Santa Barbara,   OalUornia,   to the  value of over one million dollars.   Si.e  prays tiio court to decree her one-hull  of this property.  The news ol the filing of the suit has  created a profound aenaatioii iu Spokane .'md Santa Barbara society, where  Mrs. Peyton and her daughter Meien  aro prominent iigures.  or passPs through an ore chute on the  vein when tho mine has passed the  prospect stage, the temptation is presented to extract the rich ore on the  sides of the shaft. If there are no  mining regulations in the district or  no mine inspector to enforce them, or  to prohibit such manner of working,  these errors are sure to happen. The  shaft of a mine, whether on or off the  vein, is the entrance to the workings  and should be used for that purpose  nlono ii nil not for the object of stoping.  ore from its sides, which operation  renders it unsafe and more liable to  falls of roof or wall rock, which are  linblc at any time to block, the entrance.   If it is sunk on  the veins"-a  COMPANIES REGISTERED.  Five   New Ones . to Operate   in   British  Columbia.  suitable  amount of ore, say 10 to 25  feet, depending on  tho strength of the  ground,  should be loft on each side of  the shaft before any stoping of ore is  permitted.   Jt is also a wise provision  to leave the first 50 or more feet  in  depth  from  the surface  which forms  the back of the vein as a   support  to  tho loose surface wall rocks   and that  constitutes the roof������pf the mine and  protects   the workings  from  summer  beat and winter rain.   The neglect of  making this provision has made future  working   more expensive and   ruined  many   mines,   by , admitting   surface  water and falls of rock in tho mine.  The amount ol  ore left in  the first 50  or more feet on  the back of tlie  vein  and in the ore reserved in the 10 to 20  feet on each side of  the shaft is not  lost, for if the mine in future becomes  exhausted in depth, these ore reserves  always lemain   in sight   as an   asset  which is available and can be extracted before the workings are abandoned,  and it is the wisest plan to leave such  parts to the last operation of the mine  instead of the first stages of development, as is too often the case.  The Smelting Corporation.  Another  big corporation   operating  in the Slocan and which  makes Kaslo  its headquarters, is "The Smelting Corporation, Limited."   This company is  capitalized  at $3,000,000, and   Arthur  JR. Browne   is   the   resident   director.  Mr. Browne has leased the Livers' residence and has brought  his family out  from London.   This company is  part  oi the corporation winch owns the new  process  lor treating zinc ore*.   Their  f smelling works   are situated   on   the  Manchester ship canal.   Several shipments of ore have been made direct to  England.   A number of zinc propei ties  have been purchased or bonded by Mr.  Brown and will be properly opened up.  Should further development warrant, it  is proposed to erect reduction works at  Kuslo, so that tho crude ore will be reduced before being shipped to .England.  One of the properties this company is  at present woiking is tho Lucky Jim,  20  men   being employed  and   union  wages being paid.  -The following mining companies  have recently been registered in London, England:  British Ontario Gold Mining Company, Li mi toil.���������Registered May 30, by  .Ashurss, Morris, Crisp & Co..

Following  Prance and Russia are Groat Britain  and Ireland, 21,300 miles; British India, 21,000; Astria-Hungnry, 20,908;  British North America, 16,08-1; Italy,  9,714, and the Argentine Republic,  8,422 miles. Taking the British Empire as a whole, and then not including  Australian and African possessions, it  ranks second with a total of 09.07-1  miles. Belgium has the lanresl  amount of railroad in comparison with  its total area, the amount being 32.2  miles for such square mile of area.  In comparing the countries' by the  length of railroad compared with  the  amount of population'that they serve,  we find  that the colony of South Australia  stands first with   52.3 miles for  each   10.000' people,   this   result,   of  course,  being due to the comparative  sparseness of the population.   In  the  United States   there arc   2G miles   to  each  10,000 inhabitants,   hi the more  densely populated districts of Europe  the figures  fall considerably, Germany  having 5 2 miles for each 10,000 people.  The small incr.aso cf S 6 per cent, in  the total mileage for the United States  is due to the fact that the years 1S93 lo  1S97 were among the   least active in  railroad construction in  the history of  the country, the previous decade having been one of extraordin fy increase,  over 12,000 miles,   or more than half  tho present total length of railroads in  Great Britain,   having been built in a  single year.  WINES MO MINING.  Silver stands  at G0\ in New York.  The   Wakefield mine   Iris put on  6  more men under contract.  Scott McDonald has bought all the  interests of the Fidelity group.  The Noonday, al Silverton, is making  a name for itself. It now ships a car a  day.  John L. Retallack, of Spo'otne, was  in this district this week, looking over  some mining property.  XV. Tomlinson and II. McRea, of  New Denver, have gone to the Lardo-  Duncan country to .develop some  claims.  There is considerable packing of  supplies up to the mines every day  which shows that something will drop  pretty shortly.  The New Rambler-Cariboo mine is  stocked at_S1,250,000. W..H. Adams,  Kaslo, is to be sec-treasurer, and Toronto men are to be largely interested.  S. S. Cameron sold to ILL. Brown and  K.J. Morrison one-half interest in the  Patterson claim for $500. They have  uncovered a 10-foot ledge, with a good  showing of galena. A 100-foot tunnel  will be driven at once.  The Largest Flag.  Slocan City and District.  Realizing Possibilities.  Canadian Niagara Power Company.  French  Capital.  The Excelsior Mining company are  commencing work on their property on  the  south fork   of Kaslo creek.    This  company'-'is composed of French  capitalists,  who have come  direct; from  Paris..   The resident directors   Mons.  Fieutot and Mons; Lambert, recently  purchased two of the finest residences  in Kaslo  and intend to stay with, the  district,  and   will spend considerable  money in opening up, their properties.  At present tuey have' a gang of men at  work making a trail,   continuing  the  present road  which runs from   Kaslo  to the .uemtezuuia concentrator, right  iu'^,0 their property.   As soon as this  is'c'ompleted, the, company will push  ������. development work as speedily as pos-  / sible, and it is expected that ere long  |   this will prove to be a shipping prop  osition.  V  Opening a Mine.  t ; .'.   ;  H When the shaft of the mine ia sunk  *\ on the vein or deposit in the early  I stages of the development, the error is  - of too common occurrence to iind that  the ore, on the sides of the shaft has  been stoped out, because it was easy of  access and conveniently mined at small  cost, says the Mining and Metallurg-  /ical Journal. Tnis is generally the  I prospector's first error, as the desire for  z ore is in excess of the means at hand  / of acquiring it at greater depth, and  ' on that account prospect shafts are  /seldom suitable, for the main working  'shaft of tho mine.    When a shaft cuts  The great Niagara Power Company  on the American side, with its present  installation of 40,000 horse power and  its   provision for  60,000 hoise power  more,  is not to be confused with   the  Canadian Niagara Company on the opposite shore,   whose   origiaal charter  called   for the installation of 250,000  horse power.   Under a new agreement  the monopoly held by the latter company has lately been surrendered in return for several concessions.   In place |  of making a fixed yearly payment, the  company will make payments in proportion to the powei wlno.u it develops.  For the first 10,000 horse power it is to  pay   the Ontario government   $15,000,  per annum ;   on tlie next 10,000. horse  power, SI per horse power per annum ;  75  cents   for   the   next   10,000   horse  power,  and. for tiio remaining power  up to 100,000 horse.power, 50 cents per  horse power per annum.   The engineer  of the Montreal Harbor Commission  has recently made a very careful survey of the amount of water power at  the Falls and   his report shows   that  with  tlie scheme of the Canadian Niagara Power Company to erect a plant  capable of  developing   120,000   horse  power completed, it would be possible  to obtain  the further development of  lully five times that amount above the  Falls on the Canadian side without reducing the volume of water th it passes  over the  Horseshoe Falls sullicioiitly  to detract from their scenic grandeur.  ���������Scientific American.  In speaking about the feeling in London toward   the mines  of British Columbia,   Captain Mornsh   said:  "The  people   who   interest   themselves   in  mines there are casting tlieir eyes toward   thih section and they are beginning to realize  what the possibilities  here are.   Recent'y I  met several who  arc and have been'interested in South  African mines, and they qustioncd me  I at length concerning  this section and  | expressed   their intention   of making  lurther   investigations,   and   if  they  found that it  warranted it   they   declared that they intended  to make investments   hero.    The success of the  British  America Corporation,   of the  New Gold Fields oi British Columbia,  the   Hull Mines, Limited, and  others  has done a groat ileal to attract interest  to this section.   This'interist is growing and is certain to have considerable  effect in time. ..���������'.���������'.���������.  "I received a number of the commissions, from those who are seeking to  secure intersts hero, but the business I  have in hand, and as to the extent of  my stay is so limited, I fear that. I will  not be able to execute them. I will  return to London iu August," concluded Capt. Morrish.-'  The largest flag in the world is to bo  exhibited under, the   auspices  of the  Daughters of  the   American Revolution.   It was made during tlie Spanish-  American w .r by Miss Josephine Mul-  ford, of Madison, N.J.   There are 325,-  000 stitches in  the flag,   one for each  soldier and sailor engaged in  the war.  The flag is  100 feet long and 65  feet  wide, and the. blue ground   measures  40y35 feet., The stripes are 5 feet wide  and   each star is 2ij feet in  diameter.  There "is also a   sentimental "interest  connected with several stars of the ling,  as they were made at places in the various States  which   arc associated witli  the great events of American history.  Tims, the Philadelphia star was partly  made in tho house of Betsey Ross, in  the room in which  she made  tin- first  American flag.   Then  it   was   worked  upon at Carpenter's Hall, iu the room  where  lhe first Continental Congress  assembled, and partly while sitting in  Hancock's chair in Independence Hall.  Tho  New Jersey   star   was   made   at  Washington's headquarters at Morris-  town ; the Maryland star was made at  Fort Molienry,   in honor   of Francu  Scott Key; the Virginia, star was made  in the L'll'ayette room in Washington's  Mount Vernon honie;   the Now York  star was partly made at Faunces' tavern,  where Washington  bade farewell  to his officers, and it was finished  on  board the flagship ' New York."   Each  of the forty-five stars   is ombrodored  with  the name of the State it represents and   lhe date of admission  into  the Union.   They are ail arranged in  chronological order.   According to'tho  New York Times, the flag is  to be presented to the nation on  the first anniversary of   the signing of   the recent  Treaty of Peace.  McGuigan Notes.  Since writing Inst there has been  considerable mining business done  here. The Skylark and Ranger, owned  by Mr. Copeland, has been bonded for  S15.000; a cash payment was made on  the 14th amounting to *2,500. This  property was under bond lo the Hall  Mines people of Nelson three years  ago.. It is a gold proposition with a  big ledge of low grade ore. The deal  was put through by Messrs. Dickenson  and Felt, representing a' Now York  company'. Mr. J. M. Williams, who  bonded the Chapleau, another Lemon  .crook property, has begun operations  and expects to take up a number of  men next Monday to systematically  develop the property.  The Arlington is steadily working  away and si-lting more men to work,  paving t.'i 50 a day. R. P. liithct, who  is heavily interested in the Arlington  mine, took a trip up to the property-  last Wednesday and is periectly satisfied with work being done and the  showing.  John G.

On the night of Sept. 22, 1797, while  tho British thirty-two-gun frigate  "Herinione" was cruising off the west  coast' of Puerto Rico, u [mutiny broke  out on board. It would appear thai on  the preceding day, while tho crew wore  reefing tho topsails,- tho captain���������  Hugh Pigot by name, and described  as "one of the most cruel and oppressive captains belonging to the British  navy"���������called out that ho would flog  tho last man off tho uiizzon-lopsail-  yard. Capt. Pigot was known to be  a man of his word in matters of this  sort, and, as the "cat" would naturally fall to tho lot of tho men at tho  extrornilies of tho yard, two of these  poor fellows made an attempt to  spring over their comrades nearer the  mast, but missing their hold fell in the  quarter deck aud were both killed.  .When this was reported to the captain ho is said to (have answered,  "Throw the lubbers overboard." This  was the culmination of a long series  of oppressive acts on the part of tho  captain, and the result was that the  crew mutinied, and killed their officers,  with a few- exceptions.  CAPT. PIGOT WAS STABBED  and while still alive thrown out of tho  cabin window. Thereafter the mutineers took ihe ship into LaGuayru, and  represented to tho Spanish governor  that they had sot tho officers adrift in  the jolly boat. Soon afterwards tho  "llermiono" .was added to tho Spanish  navy, ani as filled for sea iu this service she mounted forty-four guns,  while her crew, which-ia the British  service had been 220, was increased by  100, exclusive of about 70 soldiers und  artillerymen.  Two years later���������in' September, 17U9  intelligence reached Admiral Sir  Tlydo Parker, commander-in-chief at  Jamaica, that the "Hermioue" was  about lo sail from Porto Cabello for  Havanx, and, accordingly, on the twentieth of tho month, he detached tho  twenty-eight-gun frigate "Surprise,"  Capt. Edward Hamilton, to look out  for'her. .The total force, of tho "Surprise'' was 197 men and boys. Capt.  Hamilton, it seems, proposed to lhe  commander-in-chief to attempt thecut-  tins-oul of the "llermiono" if a barge  and 20 more men could be given him,  but Sir Hyde Parker refused his sanction, considering ihe enterprise too desperate. The "Surprise" was ordered to  cruise about 01) to 88 leagues off Porto  Cahe.lo, and endeavor to intercept lhe  "Hermione." X(,or some weeks these  orders were acted on, but the "Hermione ' was not met with, and, as the  provisions of the "Surprise" Were running short, Capt. Hamilton determined on .more energetic measures. On  Oct. 21 he was off the harbor of Porto  Cabello, and had satisfied himself that  the "Hermione" was still there. She  r .was moored between two batteries  situated at the enLrauce of the harbor,  and appeared to be ,  READY FOB. SEA.  ��������� The   ,batteries ���������"���������-������v-oro"said���������to~-mouat  some 200 guns. ,..-..".  .;..- The "Surprise' stood off and on until the evening of the,twenty-fourth,  .when, after dinner, Capt. Hamilton announced to his officers his intention of  attempting-the capture of the "Hermione." Later the crew were mustered aft, and the captain made la speech,  in which he reminded them if their  former succeessful exploits. He con-  deluded with; these words: "I find it  useless to wait any longer; we shall  soon be obliged to leave the" station!  and that frigate will; become the. prize  of some more fortunate ship than the  "Surprise." Our only prospect, of success is by cutting her. out this night.  This proposal was received with  fereat cheering, and the crews for the  six boats were immediately selected.  Every man was to be dressed in blue,  no white was to be shown; the password was ''Britain," and lhe reply "Ireland;"' At half-past seven lhe expedition started, Capt. llaniiltcn leading  In the pinnace. It was distinctly laid  down that, in the event of reaching  the. ship undiscovered, only the boarders were to board, the boat s crews rerunning where they were lo be in  readiness to take the "Hermione" in  tow directly the cables were cut. Tho  jrendevous was to be. the "Hermione s"  quarter-deck. When Within a mile of  the "Hermione " the advancing boats  were discovered by two gunboats, each  mounting a long gun and were fired  upon. The pinnace, by the captains  orders, threw off all attempt at concealment, and with hearty cheers its  crew  PULLED FOR THE  PRIZE.  The other boats ought all to have followed suit,  but some of  them instead  that all opposition was put down. At  two o clocli in the morning the "Hermione ' was safe in British hands once  more, und out of range of the land batteries. '  Of the British there were none killed, though Capt. Hamilton, Mr. Maxwell, the gunner, and ten others wore  more or les.-i severely wounded: The  Spaniards had 119 killed and 97 wounded oul ot Iheir total of 305.  "It is impossible," says James, 'to do  justice to Capt. Hamilton, the gunner,  Mr. Maxwell, and the first boarders  from tho pinnace; they were unsupported for more than ten'minutes, aud  this gallaant handful of men succeeded in possessing themselves of tho  quarter-deck. Tho history of naval  warfare, from the earliest times lo  this date, affords no parallel to this  dashing affair; it was no surprise, no  .creeping upon tho sleepy unawares.

The Czar of Rusisia ia far ahead of  his fellow-monarchs. He is richer by  half than any crowned head in the  world. To say with any degree ot exactitude, the amount of his wealth, Ls  obviously impossible, because he, being an absolute monarch, autocrat of  autocrais, ia free to double or treble  his income, at the cost of a nation, he  rules, whenever he wishes to do, a position nearly equal lo possessing all that  he caioa to spend. Ue owns enormous  properties, which cannot at tho lowest estimate bring him in less than  ������15,000,000 a year, and may ' very easily return twice that amount. Even  the lowest esiimuled value of his property, with his grant from tho revenues, will give him the enormous income of more than 20,000,000, to which  sum the income of no other monarch  can cumpare; aud even with the heavy  expenses to which he is. put in maintaining his court, this must be ample'  porvision for him.  It goes without saying that an absolute monarch has greater facilities  for filling his pocket than a ruler  who is properly looked after by the  dear people, and it will always be found  that the former are, comparatively  speaking, infinitely richer than lhe  latter. Hence it is thai the second  richest monarch in Europe is no less  than " the Sick Man" of bankrupt  Turkey. His income from the country's revenues is approximately ������4,-  000,000 a year, to which sum musL be  added the income from hia private property, and this is estimated at between  $7.^1,000 und ������1,000,000.

HAIR.   ;  In the districts surrounding the copper mines of Cornwall, Cuba; Chile and  other places where the ore is abundantly found, a curious sight is to be seen  in the shape "of men with hair that  is quite green. This is not, as might  be imagined, a fashionable fad, but the  grave results produced by the men's  surroundings. The crude ore, in order  to secure u more; marketable article,  is roasted in enormous furnaces, and it  is some strange emanation from, the  smelted, copper that effects this chemical change in the hair of the miners,  and turns it as green as grass. Investigations have proved that the fumes  from the. furnaces contain a certain  quantity of arsenical matter, and-this  causes the startling change, although  the texture.'and...'growth of the hair  suffer no injury.  that at Mauritius, when the cholera  fooled away their time and powder on J appeared at Port Louis, the martins  the gunboats.

HIrils   Flee   From   lhe    Approach    of (he  Asiatic I'esHlcncCv'  There are several instances on record  of birds deserting places attacked by  cholera. In 1834, on the appearance' of  cholera at Malum, in Sweden, the jackdaws and sparrows all left the place,  and did not come back until it had  gone. During an outbreak of the same  disease at Kurachee, in India, in 181G,  it was particularly remarked that tho  vultures, kites and other birds of  prey, which are very numerous in that  part of the- world, entirely disappeared, almost, simultaneously wilhtlie beginning of the outbreak, -returning  gradually after1 the first few days,  when the virulence of the disease began to abate." The belief is almost universal among the natives of many  parts of India that kites always desert  a place1 attacked by cholera, and the  return of these birds is regarded as  an infallible sign that the attack has  begun to pass off.   It is reported again  long as the epidemic continued. The  reason for this action on.the part of  the birds is not known. Possibly tlie  peculiar state of the atmosphere which  is favorable to the development of cholera, or the emanations from the ground  which some say are the originating  cause of an outbreak, are for some reason disagreeable to the birds, which,  therefore, fly away to avoid it. Thu-  cydides mentions that birds were very  scarce about Athens during the year  of  the Great Plague, 430 B.C.

The enormous difference between  French women and the women ot their  own country, writes John Strange  Winter, must strike all English people  who live long in France. French girl  babies seem, to be boi'n with quite different qualities from English ones, and  certainly their up bringing is conducted on entirely opposing lines.  Tho free and healthy life of English  gi.rls in the schoolgirl age is quite unknown in France, excepting among a  few vory advanced families, who bring  .up their childern in the English mode.  Theso are decidedly in the minority,  and although it is, on the one hand,  distinctly chio to be English, yet, on  the other, the words "so English" convey to French minds exactly the same  as the words "very French" convey to  us, so that the generally of people look  upon children, especially girls, who  have been brought up in the English  way ns those who havo already partaken of good and evil.  Until, she is about soven years old  the little French girl is utterly spoiled,  she is humored, petted and given way  to, she is fed most injudiciously, and,  to our idea, she is started badly. I  have known a French grandmother  say to a child unfortunately cursed  with a very delicate digestion, "Eat  not much breakfast, my little ono, because I am going to take thee out this  afternoon, and I shall take thee to a  pastry cook's."  Then, comes the period of education,  which lasts uplll she is seventeen or  eighteen, and, in many cases, is continued in part until mademoiselle is  married. During the whole of that  time a French girl of the upper and  middlo classes is never left alone for a  single moment. Until she is married  a young French lady never sets foot  outside her house unaccompanied, and,  in many instances, she occupies a bedroom which opens out of her mother's, and she is not even allowed to  have tho door of communication closed  by day or by night. She is never  trusted, and therefore she is taught  nothing of honarL or of defending for  herself. Everything is done for her;  she does not receive .or reply lo her offers of marriage, or even of  PARTNERS FOR DANCE.  The inherent  love  of gambling    so  deeply planted in the French heart is  made  use of even in  the.schools, for  each -week several grades of tickets are  issued to the pupils.     The first is the  billet d'honneur,'then  comes the billet rose,    then   the  billot  blanc.      To  have no billet is a humiliation and a  disgrace, and it is no uncommon'thing  in the middle sized classes to have a  dozen'girls    sobbing  and howling  at  once on a Saturday morning when the  distribution takes place.     At the same  time, the corresponding advantages of  working  for    a billet  are very great,  for most parents give a douceur for a  billet d'honneur,    and    a still greater  honor and glory attaches  to the  girl  who has worked herself on to the tableau d'honneur at the end of the term.  Then by    the    time a girl has passed  through the mill and'reached the upper    classes    she    is tired out of any  naughty  tricks she may have started  with; she is    a self-possessed   young  lady, who has learned.to tread the right  path  because the other  one has  been  made so intensely disagreeable to her.  But if the French girl has not been  taught by the good sisters to.; be athletic  she    has    been  trained \ to  have  charming manners, to  have a modest,  quiet,   bearing,    and  to  look  to    her  parents on air occasions.     She seldom  goes wrong, because, she is guided in  every relation ^f life by those who are  older  and wiser "than  herself.     Then  she    has    been    taught  many  things  which  would make  our  English , girls  stare    with    astonishment.      She  can  sew, darn and mend in the most beautiful    way.      She    can  act,  too,   even  from the very youngest age, and is encouraged  to  do  so  during  the  whole  time that she is at school, though it is  true    that,    as  art  takes  no  place in  France���������socially speaking, that is���������the  power is never  of much  use  to    her  afterward.  FRENCH WOMEN'S AMUSEMENTS.  It would be hard to tell how French  women amuse themselves. Personally I have never heard any amateur  music in France that was worthy of  mention, but all French women dance  exquisitely, some of them swim very  well, and most of them love some form  or other of gambling. I have never  yet heard of any real French women,  at least, outside o������ the artistic class,  who took any form of exercise from  choice,'unless one can count a game of  very mild croquet, on still more mild  tennis, in which she never attempts to  take a ball unless it actually comes  begging to be taken, which does not  often . happen. A few women cycle,  wearing a charming,, costume for the  purpose���������yes, knickfjrs and all the  rest���������in which tho rider does the greatest amount of posing sand the smallest  amount of cycling that is possible. She  is always ready to go to a party, a race  meeting, a theatre, a concert, or a  charity function of any description.  Moreover, she is always ready to go to  church, and -will undertake almost  any amount of church work, such as  the care of some particular chapel or  altar. ,'  The average French woman seldom  travels, or has any desire to do so, but  she will, even long after she is married, put herself to infinite pains to  acquire a foreign language, of which  she will never be likely-to make any  use. She is rigid in matters of etiquette, and punctilious in everything  relating to family life in general and  to mourning in particular. I have  known a family to go into deep  mourning, regular weeds in fact, for  a great uncle whom they had never  seen. This meant six months' absolute cessation from all society and the  wearing( of a long erapo veil over the  face during the whole ot that  time.  Whether it is from her natural ability, her having passed through such a  careful educational mill, or both, I  know not, but a French woman is usually clever, devoted���������always dovoted lo  something ���������fascinatingly, housewifely,  and extraordinarily patient in her domestic relations. And, although Monsieur is always pushed well to the front  and Madame seems at first sight to  take the second place, she has both her  little fat hands as full of power as they  will hold. She is altogether unlike  her English sister, with her golf clubs,  Iict bicycle, her shooting and her fishing, her walking stick and her cigarettes. And yet, sho is but another  edition of the most fresh and the most  varying romance that the world has  ever seen.  II1EERI OLD ���������BB&LiBD  THE DOINGS OF THE  ENGLISH REPORTED BY MAIL.

' 'Diamonds Made by Dynamite"  would be a queer sign on a jeweler's  window, but queer Ihiugs are oound  to happen in"an ago of electric tur-  naces on the one hand and liquefied hydrogen  on  the other.  Aftei   close study of the  South  African   diamond  fields  scieutists  formed the theory that diamonds were made  in nature's laboralory from carbon liquefied-by  enormous  heat  and pressure   and dissolved in iiou, from which  they crystallized out in cooling. By calculation it was foutid that  this -.void  culation il was found that this would  require   a temperature  of  about   1,000  degree..' centigrade, 7,232 degrees  'fah-  renheil,  and a pressure of  15  tons  to  lh<! square inch. Moissau, of Paris, ������.ud  other    experiincnLers    havo   proa.iJ.5d  crystals  by imitating  this  process   as  closely as possible, bul they wore too  small and imperfect to havo any value  as jewels.   Some other process must be  discovered  whereby    carhon  and  iron  can be subjected to an enormous heat  and   pressure   before  we  can   hope   to  produce    diamonds on    a    commercial  scale.   In this condition Prof. Crookes  has suggested to the Royal institution  that ' 'in their researches on the gases  from fired gunpowder and cordite Sir  Frederick Abel and Sir Andrew Noblo  obtained, in closed steel cylinders pressures as great as 95 tons to the square  inch, and temperatures as high as 4,000  degrees centigrade." Here, then, it tho  observations are correct, we have sufficient  temperature and enough pressure to liquefy carbon, and if the temperature could only be allowed to act  for   a sufficient' time  on    the  carbon  there is little, doubt that the artificial  formation of diamonds-would soon pass  from  the microscopic stage ! to a scale  more likely to satisfy the requirements  of  science,  industry and personal  decoration.

If the law is not exactly an "ass,"  it has, at. least, much of the irresponsibilities of that useful animal, and  one con never be quite certain when  and where it will kick.  Not many weeks ago a very distinguished Swedish official, General  Rappe, Minister of War, was imprisoned for three days for the offonse  of wearing a tall hat. King Oscar had  summoned a Council of the Cabinet,  "and to his dismay, and-that of the assembled Ministers, the veteran General walked into the Council Chamber in  full uniform, crowned by the incongruity of a silk hat. His grotesque appearance was greeted with roars of  laughter, but the King, in spite of his  smiles, ordered; the arrest of the absent-minded General.  Equally recently an actress, named  Edith Davitt, came into conflict with  the law6 of Austria, by appearing on  the stage of the Somossy Orpbeum, in  Vienna, ��������� in correct military uniform,  Fo this offense she had to pay a fine  of 1G florins, although, if her uniform  had been faulty in a single button she  would have escaped tlie  law.  By the curious inconsistency which  characterizes laws generally, if an actor in Germany wears a military uniform at all on the stage ho is punished, if it isi not correct to the smallest detail.

The band consists of a hundred members, fifteen of whom are  now in prison. Besides tho regular  members there were several persons on  the pay roll whoso duty it was to circulate the forged money in tho prin-i  oipal cities of Europe.  . Only silver money was made and  only tools of the finest quality wersj  used. Moreover, it is said| ��������� that the  forged pieces of money contained exactly the same amount of silver as the  money cast at the Treasury in Paris.  iYet it is ea lima ted that the forgeriJ  realized a profit of fifty per cent on  every coin which they placed in cir-'  sulation. A French exjpert says on  this subject:��������� ���������   ���������  "Ninety-eight out of every hundred  forgers will confine their "operations to  silver money, for the reason that  only skilled experts can hope to forge  gold money successfully. Forgers of  .silver money Lake a coin, say a five  franc piece, and make a perfect mouldi  or it, and Into thiat mould after it is  .dry, they pour an alloy, which has" as1  much a6 possible the appearnce and  the density of silver. This alloy is  pomposed of common metals, like tin  and zinc, though real silver is some-f  timos used.  A French journal, commenting on  the present case, says:���������"In old days  forgor,s were punished with death. Today the penalty prescribed for this  prime is relatively light. Doubtless  this is the reason why the forgers of  Lhe present day are so daring, and  why this crime is so much more com-l  mon now than it was some years ago.'

Queen Victoria is not only' in receipt of her annual, income from tho  people of Great Britain, but she is entitled besides to a' considerable number of perquisites for the supply of  the royal household.  Among the most curious of these is  ber right to every whale and sturgeon  raptured on the coast of the United  Kingdom and brought to land. Both  of ihese perquisites date back to the  Says of the Norman kings, and it appears.that in the case of the whale the  monsters were divided between the  sovoreign and his consort, the Queen  taking the head, in order ' that her  wardrobe might be replenished with  the whalebone needed for the stiffening of her, royal garments.  Another of the Queen's perquisites is  1 certain number of magnificent cashmere shawls, which are despatched to  ber every year from the kingdom of  Cashznere. They.-vary in value, as a  rule, from ������200 to $2,000 apiece, and  the Queen is accustomed to present one  of them as a wedding prosent to every  young girl of the aristocracy in whose  future she is in any way interested.

At tho  .same ceremony the Lord^of the Manor  of Hay don is obliged by Virtue of his  'lenun: from the crown to present the  (monarch with a towel, the Lord of the  Manor of Worksop giving tho sover-  eig    a  "right  handed glove."

One, of the most difficult1 problems  that, many women have to deal with,  ���������is that of keeping themselves looking  well in the morning. The trouble of  mnny house gowns and dressing jackets of the non-pretentious kind is  that  they are  not    becoming    around  : the neck.   To remedy this, a new and  . pretty idea is to cut a piece of muslin about the size of,a bandana handkerchief, and finish it at the edge  with a narrow ruffle.. Fold it diagonally, tie around the neck, leaving a  little V-shaped open front) and then  tie again. This will leave a knot, and  the ends sticking out, which makes a  ' Btople. but dainty finish.  ;     STICK .TO FACTS.

Through tho London Daily Mail  a veterinary surgeon warns the public to bewaie of cats that have "colds."  "I have recently discovered," he  writes, "that in many parts of the  west a-nd northwest of London, members of the feline race have been  stricken with influenza, and of a  most dangerous form. As the disease  may be contracted from pets, it behooves ladies and gentlemen not to  handle  or  fondle   afflicted  animals.

The Silvertonian, generally disposed  to be fair in discussing public matters,  is a little unfair in its issue of June 24  in giving the,reasons for the present  differences between .mine owners  and  miners.   It says : "It is not a question  of hours, but a question of what a man.  can live respectably on in the Slocan."  That is  the question on one side, but  on one side only.   Allowing what the  . Silvertonian says  to!be correct, as it  undoubtedly   is���������that a   man cannot  live respectably on less than 83.50 a  day in the Slocan���������that does not  yet  clear up the whole matter.   It would  follow from the Silvertonian's reasoning that the duty of the owners is  to  give whatever the miners can live respectably   on,  when   their  power   to  compensate is cut e>ff by legislation, no  matter what may be the consequences  to the owners.   Supposing the legislature passed a law making four hours a  day's work, and as the miner cannot  live respectably on less than $3.50 a  day, the owner would be expected  to  pay ������3.50 for four hour's work, if the  Silvertonian's chain of argument was  j' followed up.   The other side of the argument is that the mine owner -should  pay for what he gets; and if the   law  prevents him from getting a return for  a day's work that will enable him to  pay a miner such wages as he can liv'e  on respectably, it is a clear case it,is  the law that is at fault; and neither  ;������������������;���������' Kootenaian :-.������������������-;������������������: -���������.-;������������������  ������������������ "The Sandon Mining Review has a  lengthy account- of, lhe,arrest oi two  .���������women in 'ih'a-t.-tiiwH by Constable Me-  Keuzie and argues as to,the validityOf  .the warrant's issued in Kuslo.

The .police magistrate .here aiid' the  lawyers saw it, and they say it had no  seal and was.,--therefore, invalid. All  the concern ;Thc Review: has in, the  matter is this : It asserted that a, warrant without, a, seal is invalid,.and that  a warrant for the. infraction of a municipal by-law is no good outside the  boundaries of: that municipality.

This is the story all along.', the line.  Capitalists will not invest while our  laws' are unstable, and, as a consequence; means to develop the country  and provide work for miners pass our  door every day for other fields.

It promises.more  prompt relief and more lasting benefit in these cases than  can, be obtained from the  use of any other remedy.  50c. and $i.oo, all druggists.   .

Is  A SICKEHIKG EXECUTION.  The  Young Choctaw Who Was   Shot  and Then Strangled.  Woodland, I. T.; July 14.���������The execution of Wm. Goings, "Walla Tonka,"  Choctaw Indian, which took place yesterday at 2 p.m., was a sickening sight.  The brave young Indian walked to the  place designated by Sheriff Watson,  without .1 tremor. A few minutes before Goings was led out four Choctaws  appeared'bearing his ccfliii, deposited  it in front,of the house, and near it a  quilt was spread. Tho condemned Indian, accompanied by Sheriil Watson  and a deputy, escorted by 20 light  horsemen, marched down tlie line of  spectators Goings then knelt on tlie  quilt blindfolded. Tho Slierill bared  his bosom,' pointed u spot, over his  heart, stepped back four paces, rested  a rille across a bench mid fired. The  bullet entered the breast but missed  the spot. Goings fell backwards and  moaned for an hour before he expired.,  Water was poured down his thro,it a  number of times to hasten death by  strangulation. While the execution  was proceeding, District Attorney Clay  .remarked; "Wo are making history."  It remains to be seen what action the  U.S. will take for the defiance of its  writ'. ��������� The crime for which Goings was  shot was, tho murder ol bis uncle,  Mason Goings, in December, 1S9G. He  was sentenced to bo'shot on August  25il],.lS97, and the court granted .. respite th.it Goings might play baseball  with nine of life.Choctaw nation during 1S0S. Late on Wednesday a writ  of habeas corpus was dispatched to  Judge Abner.James, but ho ignored it  and ordered the execution 0f the prisoner to take place.  MINING RECORDS.

Mr.  Clearihue, of this city, who recently  returned, says they were preparing to  start on their journey when he left.and  none of them knew how to handle a  sail boat.  VICTORIA HARBOR, ONT.  Mr. Joseph Currier, a respected' oiti-  sen of this place, was so bad with  rheumatism that he'could not attend  to his work. Two boxes of Milburn's  Rheumatic Pills have effected a complete, cure.      ,  Some twelve years  ago Mrs. Elizabeth  Gilhula, wife of the  postmaster of Buxton, Ont., was taken  ill with an obscure  stomach   tioublc  which   her   physicians pronounced  cancer of the stom-  *>nch   and   informed  ^<tS,S1'a4&17^, her that herlea.se of  '       lile would be short.  MRS. GILHULA. On the advice of  friends she commenced taking- Burdock  Blood Bitters.' The results that followed  were little short of marvellous. Her  strength and vigor returned and in a short  time hbe was completely cured. Mrs.  Gilhula is to-day in the full enjoyment of  good health, and in all these years there has  not been the slightest return of the trouble.  Here is ihe letter Mrs. Gilhula -wrote at  the time of her cure:  "About four years ago I was taken sick  with stomach trouble and consulted several  of the leading- physicians here, all of whom  pronounced the disea.se to be cancer of the  stomach of an incurable nature; and told  me that if was hardly to be expected that  I could live kins?,-. A Her ward the two doctors  who were attending- me gave me up to die.  "By the advice of some of my friends,  who know of the virtues of Burdock Blood  Hitter-., I was induced to try it, and I am  now h-ippy to say that after using' part of  the iirst botile I fell .so much better I was  ;.blc to get up. I am thankful to slate tliat  I am conwleloly cured oflhodisea.se by the  ii'C of B. 13.13., although it had baffled the  U'-f.n-.s for a long time. I am firmly con-  vii'-e.l that Burdock Blood Ijiiters sfived  my l-.fo."  II,���������e is ihe letter received from her a short  time ago :  "J am,still/in prood health. I thank  Pin-dock Blood Riilcis for saving- my life  u\olic j'cars ago, and highly recommend  it fo other Milfcrcrs liom stomach troubles  of any-kind." Elizabeth Gilhula.  a FEW INTERESTINQ  FACTS.

Beach street was in those days much  as it is now, tho' quaintest, saltest,  'Imaginable thoroughfare on the coast of  Great Britain; littered with anchors'of  all sizes, with huge coils of .hemp cable,  with odd fantastic capstans for the  winding up of boats, with tall poles for  the spreading of nets, lines from win-,  dow to window for tho easy drying of  linen, queer dusky alloys loading at  night-time into a ,truo smuggling  blackness of atmosphere; beerhouse  after beerhouse iu friendly juxtaposition, with a perpetual seething and  hissing of surf upon the Bleep shingle  as a regale to the ear, and) miles of  sand'plains boyond, billowing to Sandwich, and sweet and musical into late  autumn dciytiino with wild-flowers of  fifty different sorts and birds of all  kinds.  It was now about nine o'olock in the  evening; there was no. moon, the starlight made no sheen, and the sea brimmed in tremor-less ebony to its confines., The few oil lamps in1 Beach  Street threw a foeblo gleam upon the  shingly road; but how full;; of people  Deal .was on this particular night,  .York might havo gathered from the  groups of men showing through every  tavern window he passed; drinking,  arguing, singing, capercuiting, as Jaok  will when newly come ashore, amid  motionless fogs of lobacco-smoko. Ihe  first sign his eye caught was that of  the Kentish Sickle. He enterod the  place, and found it crowded with boatmen and seamen. " The landlord, a  purplefaced man, who had removed his  '���������.wig. for air, and! yefcflooked half dead  with heat, stood behind a little bar or  counter, drawing ale o.ut of a cask, the  top of which was on a level with his  hand..', York inquired if he could have  a bed; the landlord, shook his head,  with a glance ,at the : tall youth, as  though he suspected a kind of impertinence: in, such a question in the face  of the crowd of people smoking and  (drinking beyond.  "Can 3rou name me a house in which  , I'm likely to obtain a bed for the  night?" said York.  "No," said the ��������� purple-faced man,  continuing to draw ale into thick  glass, one-legged tumblers, which, as  fast as he filled' them,- he pushed to a  couple of fellows, who carried them,  to the tables. "It'll bo oddl if yogits a  bed to loie in to-night, mate, in Deal.  Whoy, it'll bo ending in the boatmen  having to turn their boats' keel up  TCor lodgings;" at which observation' a  large heavy man, in a round! hat and  a great: belt round his waist, fit for  the snugging of a horse-pistol or' two,  burst into a loud laugh.  York walked.but, and entered another tavern hard by. , This,- too, was  lull, its five bedrooms crammed, the  Btate bed of the place to be'occupied  by no fewer than four men, to lie heel  to heel whenever it should; suit them  to withdraw to it; as the perspiring,  dried-up little landlord informed York  with a grin  of exquisite    satisfaction.  He tried :a third, a fourth; tramped  on to the Cat o' Nine Tails alehouse;  but to no purpose. : Had! every house  had its forty beds to let, they would  not havo apparently met the (Demand  that night for accommodation from the  captains, mates, passengers, sailors  who had come ashore on special business, or who had deserted, or who had  to take the coach next day to London  or wherever they might live,- counting  ������h passengers, upon days and' perhaps  weeks of detention if' they stuck . Lo  the craft lying out; in the Downs yonder.  York had now reached the Sundown  Extremity of Deal; he retraced his  steps, and passing the houses'he had  visited, he arrived at much such anoth-j  er one as they called, the Lonely Star,  into which he walked. At the end of  a tolerably long narrow passage ��������� was  an open door, out;, of which floated  clouds of tobacco-smoke ulong with  the incense of the punch-bowl. A little on this side the door was a staircase, and nearer yet to the entrance  a recess, in which sat a plump woman  of fifty, with sloe-black eyes and red  cheeks and treble china. Overi her  head hung an oldifashioned lantern, the  light of which was comfortably reflected iu rows of bottles on shelves behind  ber filled with liquors of various dyes.  "Can I have a bed in this, .house?"  asked York of this plump, good-humoured woman, who at hia approach let  fall some knitting /she was at work  upon;'. *  She ran her bright black eyes over  bim with ah expression as though she  found pleasure in the sight of his long  womanly hair and pale handsome face  and manliness of stature, and answered after a minute's thinking: "I'm  afraid not, sir. Every bed in the.house  is taken. I never remember Deal so  full of strangers."  "I shall have to return to the ship,  then," he exclaimed. "Yet I would  rather not. Plying betwixt the  Downs and the shore is costly work, to  a poor man���������at least your boatmen  make it so. A spare sofa would serve  me, I have been.ill in South America,  and am not yet well, and durst not  lie in the open. A pillow and a roof  for my head would' siuffice. I must he  up by daybreak, perhaps before. My  sweetheart's mother, Mrs. Bax, lives t'  other side of Sandwich, more Minster-  way than that town.���������D'ye know her  ma'am?"  "By name, sir: a very decent good  lady, I'm sure."  "There's: a bed for me there, but it's  too far to reach it on foot to-night.  Besides, my sweetheart, Jenny, will not  expect me till to-morrow by noon, or  thereabouts. Now, what am I to do  for a bed? There will be other houses  of entertainment in his town besides  those I have visited in   this street?"  "There's a gentleman," said the  lancllndy, after a short spell of thought,  "lying up-stairs who has used my  house for some years running. 'Tis  but a bit of a room he's in, sir; but he  rests in a great big bed, broad enough  to.:'house a-large .'family. If you  wouldn't mind' ! sharing it with him,  he'd aocommodate you at my, request.  I don't doubt.      What do  you  say?"  "You are very good, ma'am; 'twould  be a godsend, I assure you., I could  not feel more weary had 1 been, tramping Deal all day."  !' "Step into . the end room, then"  said sho, "and call for .what you.,will  whilst I find out if tho gentleman will  receive you."  j He entered,,and.found himself in tho  company of some score and) a half of  seamen of all denominations, with a  sprinkling of soldiers and a few  women.; The room was unpleasantly  full; the height of it was no taller  ^than a- small ship's 'tweori-docks, and  it had something of the look of a  'tween-decks, with, its substantial  joists or rafters, its small porthole-iike  windows, and walls resembling bulkheads. 'A few of the nearer: folks  stared at him oh his entrance, and a  couple of the women giggled a bit at  his hair; but the company were on the  whole rather too drunk to give him  much heed. It was an old-world scene  that, for its utterly .Vanished qualities of colour, atmosphere, attire, is  scarcely imaginable in these days; un-  snuffed rushlights.flaring on the tall,  .narrow chimney-piece and on the  tables; men mahogany-cheeked with  weather, some wearing their own hair  in tails, sorne with wigs, with here a  threo-cornered hat cocked over its  owner's noso, there a round tarpaulin  perched on nine hairs, with a fathom  of ribbon , down the back; most of  the people smoking long clay pipes,  and arguing with drunken animation,  With now; and again the added hullabaloo of one who would ,, set up ��������� his  throat for a song; the women in oolors  which made one think of a crockery  shepherdess ; and visions of copper-nosed , salts looming out in postures of  wrangling at the tables in smoke-obscured corners.  York took a chair near the door and  oalied to the drawer for a glass, of  spirits.- After a little the landlady  eatmc to him and said that she had  knocked at Mr. Worksop's door and  asked if he would object to, a bedfellow ; and that his answer was the'gen-  tlemain was welcome if so be he would  contrive, to ride with an up-and-down  cable; by which she understood Mr.  Worksop to mean,that he exriected the  gentleman to keep to his side of the  bed. York thanked her, and said he  should be glad to go to rest at  once.  "I shall be quitting your house before you're..'.up,", said he, "and will  pay you for the . bed now, if youc  please,"  "AS you will, sir," said she; "it  will  be  a  shilling."  He gave her   the money.  "There'will be no difficulty," he exclaimed, "in letting myself out in the  morning ? I do not wish to disturb  the house by a stiff wrestle with  harsh  bolts and difficult locks."  "That'll be your door, sir," said she,  pointing to the street entrance at the  end'of the passage. "There is but one  bolt, and it shoots easily. We feat-  nothing but the foreign invader at  Deal, ,sir: U^he latch will'fall when  you pull  the  door  after: you."  He thanked her, took his bundle, and  followed her upstairs. She knocked  at a little door painted stone-color,  leaning as with age in its frame. A  voice answered, "Uomo in," in .a muffled hurricame note.  "It's the gent, Mr. Worksop, as is  to Jie with you," responded the landlady ; and then, putting the rushlight  into York's hand, she 'bid him goodnight with a pleasant wish that he  would find his sweetheart happy and  in gay health  next morning.  The latch of the door; appeared to  be jammed; York struggled with it  for some time, but could not succeed  in lifting it, Meanwhile, he heard Mr.  Worksop,' who was manifestly a seafaring.inan, calling from the bed several varieties of sea-blessings upon  the eyes land limbs of his disturber,  until, losing all patience, he bawled  out in the tones of a gale of wind:  "Put your shoulder, to the latch and  heave it up I Thunder and blood I ain t  it   plain   that'    prising's     your    only  tack?" -.;���������'.-.'���������:..' ���������'.' .  York did as he was told, and by so  doing lifted the crazy old door off its  latch,  and entered.  \He found himself in a little room,  with the ceiling but a very few inches above his head. The apartment  was almost entirely filled by a large,  black, lunereal, four-poster, undrap-  ed, and furnished with a perfect Atlantic Ocean of blanket, mattress and  coverlet. On the left side of this immense bed' lay a man, of whom nothing more was visible than a curiously elongated face, as though his countenance had been stretched, lengthening the lineaments ,out of all proportion to their breadth. This odd lace  was crowned with a large red handkerchief, so twisted over Lhe head as  to serve as a night-cap. The clothes  of a nautical man of that age lay  heapad upon a chair under the  little window which gave light  ventilation  to the room.  "Sorry to break in upon your rest,  Mr. Workshop," exclaimed York, "but  needs must, you know. But for your  kindness, my bed to-night might have  been on the cold ground, 1 fear ���������  Deal's amazingly full, certainly."  "Very welcome, very welcome,",  growled Mr. Worksop in a somewhat  softened voice, staring over the edge  of the bedclothes with small, windy,  d-eejirset eyes at the long hair and tali  figure of the young fellow. There's  room enough; only be so good as to  be,ar a hand and tumble aboard, for  I don't feel up to the knocker tonight, and there's been row enough going on downstairs since I've lain  here to make a dead man get up and  shoulden his coffin, for a cruise arter  peace." .'  York fell to undressing as expeditiously  as possible.  very  and  "What's your calling, may I ask?"  inquired' Mr. Worksop, rumbling out  ther question with his mouth half covered with the bedclothes.  "A sailor," was the answer.  "What ship, sir?" ���������  "Weil, I Was second-mate of the  Coelia, but sickened at Valparaiso of  some,pestilence there, and was left behind by the nnyster. 1 was down six  months with the malady,' and nearly  a dead man. Then the captain ot the  big Jane offered to carry mo home on  condition of my helping him in the  "navigation of the vessei���������1 mean, taking observations and keeping the reckoning and the like; for he had lost  his chief-mate, and his. second, who  was tho ship's parpenter, couldn't  read or writo. We brought up in the  Downs this evening; and as'my sweetheart'lives'within a few hours' vvalk  of lhia place, I came ashore, meaning  to start for her homo at dawn to-morrow. Small chance of my disturbing  you, Mr. Worktop; you'll find me catlike, and M'on't know I'm gone till  you turn to "look." '  "Right you are, sir; right you are,"  rumbled the other.;:,," there's room  enough here. AVhy, boil me alivo, ohl  but this must have ' been a royal bod  of state  iu  its  day."  "I'll.blow.out-ibis light," said York,  ���������"But have you a tinder-box handy,  Mr. Worksop? I'm without that convenience���������without a good deal that  should have been mine but for Valparaiso. It's well to be- able to strike  a light; one never knows what may  happen."  "There's my jacket on that cheer,"  answered Mr. Worksop; "you'll find  whaL you want in the leflhand pocket."  York felt, and found the( things,  placed them near the rushlight, extinguished it, and got into bed.   .  They lay talking for a while. Mr.  Workshop, it seems, had bceA' boatJ  swain of a West Iridiaman for three  voyages. He had been paid off in  London a week or two before; and; having been born at Deal, had run down  to spend a fow dlays at "tho old spot  and to take a short cruise about the  district. Ho was too sleepy lo talk  much; but it was plain, from the little he let fall, that he was a man who  had used the ocean for many years,  and had much that was moving, and  interesting to tell, whenever he should  feel disposed to deliver himself of his  experiences. Presently ho began to  wander, then to snore. York lay  awake for some time, listening, to the  lium and roll of the voices of tho  drinkers in the room below. There  was an oil lamp just outside, the window, which" , threw a dim illumination  sifficiently clear : to render faintly  visible the outlines of objects. The  young fellow rested, lost in. thought,  with his mind going to his sweetheart  from whom he had been jiarted fourteen months; then io his prospects in  life; the' offer made him by the captain  of the Jane,, his chances of getting the  money due to him from the owners of  tho Coelia, and the like; and then tho  noises below quioting with the departure one by. one of the revellers, he  closed, his,; eyes and was presently  asleep.  He was awakened by a sense of suffocation, and found himself bathed in  perspiration and panting for breath  under the weight of the bedclothes.  The boatswain was shoring heavily.  All was silent out of doors, saving at  intervals the moan of a gentle gust of  through the stealthy seething sound of  the midnight waters pouring upon the  shingle.. He sat upright for the relief  of the posture; but whether it was that  the Valparaiso fever was not yet out  of. him, or that his condition rendered  bim jjartioularly sensitive to a linos-*  pheric conditions, he found tho temperature of the room'insupportable. Indeed, the little compartment was  nearly all bedstead. The lungs of tho  boatswain, to judge by his breathing,  seemed to require the air of the open  ocean to fill them. : There was an  odour of flue, too, along with a tepid  flavour of, bedclothes, that was as  stifling in its way as the atmosphere  of a bakehouse.  The'young fellow quietly got out of  bed with the design oft opening the  window, but found the casement, as  the. door had been, a sort of fixture,  whose dislocation must result in the  waking of the whole' house, i. He pined  for a drink of water; but there was no  jug or washing apparatus in the room;,  and it was manifest that gentlemen  who put up at the:-Lonely/. Star were to  expact no better convenience than an  outdoor pump for their ablutions. Now  the Lonely Star--was- sure to have a  pump of its own as well as a backyard;  and the fancy of a!drink-!of cold water  coupled with a short spell of breathing the dewy night-air worked so irresistibly in the feverish young man,  that he. resolved at' all; hazards to explore for the relief  he panted for. He pub, before  his tansy a figure of tlie house, and  kept in his mind the bearings of tho  staircase and the public room he had  entered, -lie could recall thai, whilst  seated in that room, he had taken  notice of a glaos door screened with  red curtains at the extremity of it,  with a white step between it and the  floor. -This he made sure.led into the  back-yard, where,, though he should  not meet with a pump, he was certain  to obtain fresh air.  Ho partially clothed himself; but,  in trying the/door, found he could not  lift the latch with his fingers. He felt  in his pockets, but ..wjas without anything to enable him to prise open the  jammed and rusty arrangement. The  boatswain snored heavily in the soundest sleep. York, dreading the'fellow s temper should he awaken him,  walked softly to the mans clothes,  and, by the feeble light that shone upon the little window, groped in the  pockets for any contrivance that should  serve hin as a lever. The jackat jackets contained nothing but a tobacco-  case, a pipe, and some papers. He felt  in the left-hand breeches pocket, and  touched a quantity of pieces of money,  the weight of which proved them to be  gold, apparently guineas and half-  guineas. In the other pocket was a  large clasp-knife such as sailors carry,  with a ring through the end of the haft  for, a laniard.  York took his knife, went to the door,  and succeeded' in lifting, the latoh; and  this dine, he stole forth, leaving the  door ajar ; then putting the knife in his  pocket, he groped his way downstairs  ail very quietly, as he did not wish to  disturb the houso. The street lamp  that had helped,him in the bedroom  served him below wherever there was  a seaward-facing window, and he made  his way without difficulty through the  long, low-ceiled public room, reeking  and sickening .with the lingering fumes  of tobacco and rum- punch ; and pulling back the single bolt of tho glass  door ho had taken .notice of, he found  himself in a little back-yard with, sure  enough, tho outline of a jnunp in the  corner faintly touched by the starlight.  lie drank and bathed his hands and  face, and felt himself greatly refreshed, ffhoro'was an inverted tub- clo;-.e  to the pump, upon which he rested himself,'and here he continued to linger'  for- some time, reluctant to quit the  sweetness and freshness of tho cool  air that was breathing direct from the  sea for tho oven-like oppressiveness of  the Utile bedroom. Maybe he dozed,  for he was suddenly startled by tho  near drowsy voice of a watchman calling the hour, two o'clock. On hearing  this, he arose, ro-entered the house,  quietly boiled the glass door after him  an .1 rotumad to his bedroom.  (To Be Continued.)  ���������      MAKING NEGROES WHITE.  Emlle Giinllcr, the Trench SclentiNt. Ifrgca  That the 1'cni tan Bo Accomplished lty  Klectrlclty. ,  The notion of the electric current in  leaving white scars on the skin when  it1 is used with the needle in minor  surgical operations has suggested to  somo. oho tfhat it may,; destroy the pigment cells and hence, applied on a  large scale, might bo able to whiten a  negro's skin. This theory is set forth  in a somewhat sprightly fashion, by,  M. Emile, Gautier, the French scientist.  "It is known throughout th������ world  ofi science tha/t electricity oan exert a  characteristic aotion on the tissues and  liquids of the orgainism, What is tho  exact nature of this action? -What is  its exact meichanism? Is it exclusively  mechanical or exclusively chemical; or  is it alternately chemical and mechanical? Doos it act by electrolysis or by  vibratory massage 1 Over all these  delicate questions bangs still a pall of  mystery..  /"But this does not prevent physiologists and therapeutists from making  common use of electricity in all ;its  forms, and in particular by the method  of leleotrop.unclure, by which they  sometimes obtain res'ul la both  CURIOUS AND ENCOURAGING.  "The method is used not only for  destroying undesirable growths of hair  eradicating birth-marks, warts, etc.,  but also with success for erasing ta-  too-marks that had been supposed to  be indelible. Electricity, thereforo,  modifies the.-tissues and liquids, of the  living body when it traverses them,  either by provoking certain , chemical  reactions or certain changes of state,  or by suspending or disturbing : the  nutrition of the blood-vessels and  nerves.  "These facls are perhaps not easily  explained, but they are undeniable,  nihil'' although the laws that govern  Iboim remain hidden in obscurity they  none the Jess^mianifest themselves by  visible and tangible effects,, one of the  most common of , which is decoloration.  "It is extremely rare that in tho  caises noted above of the surgical use  ofi electricity, it doos not leialvc a scar  so distinct that it alters the color of.  the skin; on which appears a white  spot of considerable size. It is probable that it exerts a peculiar selective  action of the coloring' matter or pigment of the epidermis.  / "The epidermis consists' of tbreo distinct layers of cells, one above the  other; In the- deepest layer, the so-  called 'mucous layer of Malpi'ghi,' is  found thi coloring matter, to which the  skin owes its hue, arid which is known  ais 'pigment.'    ~ ':. ��������� r" ''.,'���������  "The pigment exists in all races, in  the: form of brown granulations, mingled with the cells of the 'mucous layer..' The'only, difference in this regard, between a negro and a white  mcun, is that in the negro these granulations ure .''.'���������"  MORE NUMEROUS AND LARGER.  "If we could, by any process whatever, destroy or disorganize these pigmentary infiltrations, which are, ns it  were, natural tatoo marks, the skin  would) present in the spots so treated,  even if it were the skin of a negro,  the; characteristics of an albino's skin,  whose peculiarity is that it lacks pigment altogether.  "Now it is neither impossible nor  even improbable that electricity apts  on the pigment. Wo have a right to  suppose that it does, since it always  leaves behind it light-colored scars.

TERRIBLE SUFFERING OF A PRINCE  EDWARD COUNTY FAfiMlS.  Hospital Treatment Fulled (o Kcucfit Kim  iiimI Ills Life Uiis Ucsjiiilrctl Or-.lsatu  Well nail Strong.  From the Belleville Sua.   . i  A reporter ofthe Bellevillo SUi recently had an opportunity to irtfresli-  gate a cure made through the use of  Dr. WiliiainV Pink Pills for Pale  People which is little short of miraculous. Tho subject of Ufo cure is Mr.  William U.cConklin, a well known  farmer who lives in Amoliasburg township, Prince JOdward county. When  tho reporter drove over to soe Mr.  Conklin ho was uifitor the impression,  from wluit ho had heard "A tho case  that he would find a partial invalid,  but to his surprise found a stalwart,  robust man of six feet, actively engaged unloading logs from a sleigh.  On making known the object of his  visit the reporter was invited into the  houso and Mr. Conklin gave his story  as follows:���������  You" can see for yours?]f that my  condition is now one of good health,  and yet I have been near death's door. .  A year ago last summer I injured my  hand, with the result that' blood  poisoning set in. A doctor was called  ia and the usual treatment given and  the hand;/apparently got well and I  started to work. It soon turned out,  however, that tho poison had D-ot been  entirely , got rid of ,and it ' spread  through my whole system. Tho doctor was again called in, but looking  upon'my case as critical, advised me to -  go,to .the hospital at'Belleville. This I-  did and remained there throughout  tho mionth of October, 1897. My condition: was desperate, and as I!was not  making any progress toward recovery,  I may frankly say that I gave my case  up as hopelelss. Believing that.I could  not recover^ I asked to bo takon homo.  I then tried various treatments with  no betler re&ults. I could not walk-  without help, and I was doubled up  like a jack-knife. At this stage I  was advised to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills and sent for, half a dozen  boxes. After using the first half dozen  my appetite returned and night sweats  which had been tho bane of my sleeping hours desertod mo. Knowing that  the pills wore helping! mo I sent for a  further supply.' Meantime a swelling  came in my hip, which finally broke,  and from that on my progress was  more rapid and I am again as sound  as over, and able to do a day's work  with any one. I can only add that Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills brought me to my.  present state of good health and so  long as I live I shall praise tho remedy  that brought, me back from the verge  of the grave.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by  going to thei root of the disease. They  renew and' build up the blood, and  strengthen the nerves, thus drivin_g  disuse from tho system.

Fresh deposits of bone took place; and the skull  gr.a|duany. expanded to) almost its pro-  p'ar size^: Then the intellectual- faculties, which bad -hiterto been those of  an infant,- grew stronger and stronger  every day, till at" last the child: was.-  aisl souridand healthy as any other in ;"  France.'/ Soone ofthe most remarkable <  surgical operations have been performed'in connection with the brain, which  id riow~ so accurately mapped oiit that  a sturgeon can tell exactly where tho  scat of mischief in the brain lies.

Ho had a rod in his haud, but  he didn't attempt to fish. He hadn't  the  heart.  " Ah, finny ones," muttered ho, " you  maj frolic iu security. You may leap  out of the water and secure your fly.  Your ingenuous trust shall not be betrayed. Tho plump blue-bottle will be  tho genuine article. My hook shall  . not intrude upon your gills this day,"  Then ho cast his tackle from him; and  flinging himself upon the daisied turf  he  gave  liberty  to  a long  pent  sigh.  Alphonso was in love.  Josephine was as beautiful and as  bright as the glowing sunshine of this  aummer's day. Josephine was exquisite. Josephino was celestial. Venus  herself could not have eclipsed his Jo-  sephine.  Tho thought had scarcely flashed  through his mind, ere Alphonse started  with surprise. He leant on his elbows, and gazed entranced into the  waters. Was he enchanted? Could  what he beheld be real? Ho was thinking of Venus, and lo 1 there ho saw  iTosephine, not rising from the sea, but  shimmering amidst the weeds and  fishes..  Of course, if was only her shadow that  the stream embraced. But think of  embracing even that 1 Oh, lucky  stream I And the fishea bobbing up  and down oaught flies under - the  very   noie  of Josephine's  reflection.  " They are stealing kisses," cried the  amorous Alphonse in a fit of jealousy.  It was then that he felt a gentle  " prod." It had been administered by  the ferrule end of a lady's sunshade.  Ho looked up into Josephine's face, and  was about leaping to his feet, when  with a grace and charm peouliar fo  herself, she spread out her handkerchief and sat down upon it, by his side.  Rapture I  Ho had such a lot to talk about that  he didn'l know where to begin; so for  some moments they merely gazed into  the stream togethor, and said nolhing.  That's the worst of love ; there's often  so  much in  it   that  nothing  ex-  >  presses so woll as silonce.  After a while! Alphonse' found-his  voice, and he murmured: .-  ,.  " Josephine I"  The tone in which he uttered this,  and the look which accompanied it,  spoke a whole volume of love, and was  not merely so wearisome. Josephino  must havo understood, for she .blushed aud sighed.  - This emboldenod him; he caught her  dainty gloved hand; ho clasped it, conveyed it to his enraptured lips, and���������  ah, we won't listen to their soft coo-  lags, to their sweet warblings of love.  . Have we never been caught in Cupid's  net ourselves ?  - How time sped I At last Josephino declared she really ought to be going,  and she looked at her watch and wound  It up. It was during this trivial operation that Alphonse indulged in a rascally trick. Quick as lightning he had  drawn from his pocket a pair of scissors, and he adroitly snipped off a curl  i���������one of her ambient locks���������without  her being aware of it. It was one of  those ringletly tresses that ladies wear  Blustered up behind sometimes. So the  theft was not difficult to accomplish.  ��������� Craftily, ho secreted his treasure ; then  he escorted his unwitting lady-love on  her way home.  Their road lay for the most part by  the margin of tho trout stream, and  the lilflo fishes would now and again  peep up, and of course, envy them.  When the little fishes disappeared  they would leave behind a bubble and  nn eddying circle. This did not escape  Alphonse's notice; nor did he lose the  pootio opportunity.. ,Ho whispered to  Josephine that the bubbles were congratulations��������� as congratulations: frequently are���������and���������the circlets , were a  pretty. piscatorial way of    suggesting  ��������� the-ring. ��������� '.  '  Ah, what an erratio being Alphonse  was, and what an imagination he had I  /  The'lovers, were duly engaged.  Alphonse became so jealous of Josephine that he hated her to be looked  ��������� at, and, like a turbaned Turk; he desired she should wear a veil.   .  She wouldn't. ���������'.'���������:  Then the green-eyed monster battened on his prey.   Alphonso had a bosom  ,  friend, and to him he confided the secret of his agony.   This friend, who was  of a philosophic, not to say mystical,  turn  of  mind,  advised  a    proceeding  somewhat out of the common.  " Josephine," said he, " is no. doubt,  , as you have, told me frequently,  exceedingly  beautiful,    and,  lucky  man  that you are, I believe her charms are  entirely for you.   There exist men, my-  ��������� self included, wno do not. exactly see  her with your adoring eyes.' I am very  fascinating, Now. bewitching though  Bhe may-be, I should never have imagined it. That, of course, is' my blindness, but, nevertheless, it may be fortunate for you, for I am very fascinating. Now, Josephino appears to ine,  and, I think to the world in general,  a frigid sort of a girl,; and���������pardon  me, not so young but that she might  be younger. You have no cause for jealousy."  " But," responded Alphonse in sombre tones, " what if I tell you I am  jealous ������������ the past, and of what  through that past, may be looming in  the future?"  i  Nearly to the. roots of his hair did  his friend's eyebrows   elevate    themselves.   What was he about  to  hear ?  " Josephine has told- me she has a  secret." This confidence was whispered, and with a glance askance, as if  he expectod hia inamorata , to appear  at his elbow and denounce him for the  betrayal.  " And that secret Is "  " Still in her own keeping ; but sho  assures me she will reveal it some day  ���������some day. Ah, Gustave, my friend,  can you not now comprehend the jealous pangs that rack my heart ?"  " Women are apt to enlarge upon  small matters, my dear Alphonso. This  may only be a woman's wile to teat  your love, to try your faith. Think no  more of it; and it she ever reverts to  it,   laugh at it."  " "Xou caix never have loved, for you  cannot realize the intensity of my passion.   Your advice is an impossibility."  " Then Lurn the other way about. Insist on knowing this secret at once."  " You aro a brute. How could I be so  indelicate ?*"  " Then unravel it by other means.  Find it out yourself and tax her with  it. Then it would be at your own option to forgive her or to break off  the maloh." I  " Either would break my heart. But  I think your advice good. Only how  am I to set about  it ?"  * 'Has sho not given you some clue ?"  " She has never given me anything."  " Dropped some  suggestion ?",  " Sho has dropped nothing."  " Umph; thou I see but ono way out  of tho difficulty. I have a friend who  is a clairvoyant."  " I don't understand."  " He is also a psychometrist."  " And that is ?"  " Give him any small article of your  apparel���������a glove, a handkerchief, and  by holding it against his forehead he  will tell your character, and will give  you a resume of your past life. I have  tested his powers, and what he has  told me has boen far more truthful  than either flattering or  pleasant."  " It  is humbug."  " I should bo sorry to say so from  my experience. Would you like to test  it?"  "Well, I don't know. Yes; there  can bo no harm  in i that."  " Have you a glovo, or ribbon, or  anything that belonged to Josephino,  anything that she has frequently  worn ?"  " I have���������a lock of her  hair.'"  " Excellent. To-morrow>wo will visit  the scientist."  mind, Gustave took him by the arm  and accompanied him to the very door  of the house. Furthermore, he knocked  at that door, and himself inquired for  Josephine. On ascertaining that she  was at home, he abruptly shook hands  with Alphonse, and left him no option  but to face the lady and the difficulty.  Alphonso was ushered into his sweetheart's presenoe. Oh, he looked so ill  and haggard I Josephine was knitting  him a pair of socks when he entered  and she looked up to smile; but she  dropped the wool and tho needles, and  she ran toward him in terror.  " My own, what is tho matter?" she  cried.  Her surprise may bo imagined when  he, in reply, seized her by the wrist  and hissed into her ear: " Tell me your  secret���������or I shall do something desperate."  But sho was too startlod to utter a  word. '  " Josephine," he hurriedly continued,  ' I'm on the rack, and I can't stand  it." -  '  Then,-scarcely knowing what he was  doing, he,dragged the stolen curl from  hiB   pockot,   and  cast   it   at   her   feot.  " Ah, you have discovered," cried she,  and with a little shriek she hid her  face in her hands.  " Oh, forgive me for deceiving you,"  and she burst into tears. "I would  have told you all before, but I hadn't  the courage. I didn't know how you'd  take it." i  "Go on."  " It wasn't my fault. I couldn't help  it.   I " ' , ���������.  " This is torture. Confess all, Josephine."  " It's very short at present."  C-," Short I      Who's    short 1     What's  short ?" '    >  " But it's growing' slowly, but It's  growing."  " Josephine, do you want to send me  mad?"  She raised her beautiful head and  turned her tearful eyes toward him.  She said no word, but clutching those  ambient locks he loved so well, she  took them off���������she wore a wig.  A fever, a shaved head, a wig until  her own hair grow again���������this was  Josephine's terrible secret.  "Maxhniliam,| my friend, let me introduce you to an old chum of mine.  Alphonse, this is Maximilian the renowned clairvoyant and psychomo-  trist." And very soon they were all  cosily seated in tho latter gentleman's  library.  Gustave soon broached tho object of  thoir visit. "Max," said-ho, "I wish  you' would give us some evidence of  your skill. My friend here is a sceptic."  " Sceptic is scarcely the appropriate word," interrupted Alphonse, and  bowing politely to his host,' "I am utterly unacquainted with your strange  science," said he, "and am not so foolish' as to form an opinion uponi a subject of which I am entirely ignorant."  " That is certainly proving yourself  a sensible person," replied Max, returning the bow. "Unfortunately, the  rule is, people begin by pooh-poohing  what' they don't understand. If gives  such an air of superiority, and it  saves  so  much  trouble"  "Here is your test", continued Gustavo, arid, at a glance from him, Alphonse intrusted the cherished  tress to the hands of Maximilian.  " This," continued he, "was snipped  from a lady's head only a few days  ago, and has never since left my  friend's possession."  "And I suppose you want me to tell  you  something about that  lady?"-  " Exactly."  Maximilian hold the precious curl In  the palm of his hand and pressed it  gently against his brow. He remained quite still for a moment; then he  looked angry; and' then :  "Oh, oh I" said he with a start.  "What's tho matter?" inquired Alphonse, awaiting the reply with bated  breath.  " Oh,    nothing,    nothing���������merely���������  umph���������this  hair has been  dyed."  " Ah, that's tho secret," and Gustave  jumpeo. up slapping Alphonse on the  shoulder. "That's the secret," cried he,  " rest assured���������dyed hair."  " Oh, there's a secret is there ?" muttered the scientist, and he added quietly ; " but'I presume you know the  past  of the' person ?" ".  " No," interrupted Alphonse, in hasty-  eagerness, leaning forward in his  chair. " No, that's just what I want to  find out."  Maximilian quietly returned the lock:  " I should rest contented with: what  I already know. I don't care to tell  you  anything further."  It was only after great pressure that  the scientist could be persuaded to  take the hair in his hand again.  "I do this under protest," said he,  replacing it against his forehead.  ".Well, if you must have the truth  tho person whoso head this was cut  from was���������well, let us-say, not a desirable individual to be acquainted  with."  Alphonse crimsoned:     Gustave    got  fidgety.  "A woman of���������well���������umph���������just so."  Alphonse nearly    fainted!     Gustave  looked serious. ..'���������������������������.  "Must I go on?"  " If you please." ..������������������'''  "I see the interior of a prison; Iron, no, I'm extremely sorry, to disoblige you, -but I poiitively. decline  telling you more."  Alphonse, white as a lily to the very  lips, mechanically took, the proffered  tress and thrust it  into his pocket.  Bidding tho psychometrist a hasty  adieu, the two friends were soon in  the street, and for a while they pursued their way in silence.  Suddenly Alphonse stopped short, and  striking his fist upon a post, "I will  go to Josephine at once," said he, "and  have all   this explained."  " Bravely resolved," cried his friend;  and so that he couldn't  change    hia  WAS A LOVE MATCH.  In view of all- the gossip from timo  to time about the Prince and, Princess  of Wales,, the following about! their  first meeting is of interest. It seems  that the eldest son of the Queen fell  in love, with the photograph of a young  girl in a simple muslin frock, with a  velvet ribbon around the throat, which  a boon companion drew from his pocket.  "Who is that beautiful girl?" asked  the Prince.  "The daughter of the Prince of Denmark," was tho reply.  The Prince of Wales said nothing,  but he lost no opportunity in dis^  patching a confidential friend to the  Danish court to judge if the Princess  was as lovely as tho pitcure represented her. The answer was that she was  even fairer, and the courier gave a de-  with a clear complexion, -gazelle-like  eyes and chestnut hair, who was as  amiable as she was accomplished and  whose qualities of heart equaled those  of her form. The Prince made speedy  arrangements to visit Denmark. His  introduction to the Princess took  place ��������� so runs the story ��������� by chance  in the cathedral at Worms. While  tho Prince was talking to the Princess  his equerry, it seems, took pity on a  quiet-looking gentleman who was wandering about tho cathedral and whom  he supposed to be of the Princess' suit.  After chatting to him for a time he  discovered to his dismay, that he had  been patronizing the father of Princess  Alexandra.  A pretty act of the Princess just before leaving Denmark was hor allotment of some G.COO thalers as dowries  to six poor brides who were to be married on the same day as herself. She  reached Gravesend throe days before  her wedding, and tho Prince, in his  haste to greet her, caused some amusement by rushing down the gangway  and kissing her heartily in view of all  onlookers. The decorations.at Grave-  send were elaborate. A pleasant little  surprise had been prepared by Princess  Alexandra for her royal mother-in-law.  She arrived in a white dress, but before'leaving������������������ the yacht changed it.for  a gown of lilac poplin, having heard  that the Queen's favorite color, was  mauve and- that she preferred poplins  Consequently the  J HOUSEHOLD, j  GENUINE RUSSIAN TEA.  The genuine " Russian" tea is not  mado and allowed to cool, but tea just  brewed. One teaspoonful of tea is allowed to each cup of boiling water,  which is then allowed, to steep on the  hearth or table for fifteen minulea.  Tho glasses are then filled three-quarters full of cracked ice, chipped so fine  that it cools the tea immediately, and  then boiling tea is poured on. One tea-  spoonful of lemon juice and one slice  of lemon completes the " cup which  cheers." In making tea scald the pot,  which should be either of silver, gran-  iteware or earthenware, not tin. For  moderate strength allow ono teaspoonful of tea to half a pint of - freshly  boiled water. Pour slowly over the  tea, and let tho pot stand where it  will bo at the boiling point, yet will  not boil, for from three to five minutes keeping tightly coverod. Serve in  hot  teacups.  EGGS IN RECIPES.  Those readers who give attention to  recipes appearing in different forms  cannot fail to have observed that sometimes the writers calculate the quantity of eggs to be used either by number or weight. The general rulo is by  number, although wo think that it  would be bettor if confectioners would  adopt the plan of weighing ogg3 instead of using them by number. Eggs'  vary in size to such an extent that  it is often a matter of difficulty to  find medium ones, and in cake-making  thero will sometimes be an egg that  ia only half the size of anothor. Although eggs are sold by ��������� the long  hundred, of 120 to the hundred, tho re is  also frequently a discrepancy iu the  value of them; and it is a very difficult matter to get an egg merchant  to admit that his eggs are small..An  egg merchant U usually a person with  very little conscience ; he is prepared  to swear that black is white, and that  as sure as eggs are eggs all those he  sella are of- a fair average size. They  never fail to point out that a case contains a very large-proportion of heavy  eggs; but when they come to be in  some cases a little larger, than a marble, the seller will declare they aro as  fine and large eggs as what ho has  handled for sometime. To obviate this  unpleasantness, and also for Lhe sake  of fairness, it would not be a bad plan  if eggs as well as being calculated by  weight for recipes, could also be purchased by the same standard. Attention is being given to this subject at  present in Canada, and some exporters are drawing the attention of buyers to go back to the system of sellings eggs by weight. When this system was in vogue it induced farmers  to pay more attention to.breeding birds  that   would lay  the   largest  eggs.  put away soon enough in the spring;  the eggs are already laiA in the stuff*  before they are packed, and hatch in  the profound darkness ia which they  revel  There is a general impression that  camphor or pepper or moth balls keep  away moths, but it is not so. The?  do not in the least object to odors,  and why such stuff is used at all is  really a mystery. Buffalo bugs seem  really to thrive on camphor, and to  find especially congenial quarters in  cedai shelves or closets or trunks.  Every article should bo carefully  brushed���������all the pockets turned inside out, brushed, ��������� and then turned,  smoothly back again, and every spot  of every description carefully cleansed  ���������for moths always seize upon a spot -  of any sort as a particularly choice  morsel, Each garment should be folded separately, and very smoothly and  wrapped in old linen, or cotton sheets,  or parts of them.  Newspaper is an excellent thing to  fold things in, as,, for some reason  moths particularly object1 to it. The  ohests "that things are to be packed  away in should be carefully wiped out  perfectly clean with a wet cloth, so  that not a particle of dust lingers. It  is well to spread a largo old sheet over  the open trunk, and push it down,  leaving the surplus outside, and then  to fold that over when the trunk is  packed, for efen one moth miller, if  it slips in, may undo all your work  and care. Never leave a trunk open  a moment, after it has been wiped out,  before packing it.  Very valuable furs should be examined and beaten every two or throe  weeks' at tho outside. ' It is a great  deal of cafe to do all this, but people  must pay for fine possessions and  must so regard tho care. Never trust  to a oedar closet for keeping valuable  woolens or furs.  The very best' sort of chest to pack  clothing away in, is a good, solid chest  of good size and heavy, well fitted as  to joints and cover, that any good carpenter can make, and if given a coat  of shellac or varnish outside, it will  in timo be very handsome. Old paper-  lined trunks should never be used, for  under the piper the moths are mora  than likely to have deposited their eggs.  Carpets that are nailed down close to  the baseboard are often eaten there-  even when the room is open and most  carefully swept. The only way to prevent, it i3 to saturate the carpet once  a week in spring and summer with a  little turpentine on the places where  the moths have eaten or are likely to  eat. Tho turpentine will not injure  the most delicate colors, and is tha  best preservative  from moths known.  MODERN RUSSIA.

RETURN OFQ BIG BOWS.  Big bows for the neck so much in  vogue seem to be a reaction from the  tiny cravats. One must have tho bow  small and tho ends long and sweeping.  Ribbon is, of course, the favorite, but  silk, mousseline de soie, taffeta, laco  and. mull are some of the many  materials employed. These bows and  ends are hot at all in keeping with  the tailor made effect ofi tho shirt  waist, with which they are top often  worn, but fashion is a strange inspiriu-  tion, and combines the most unlikely  caprices of toilet with the utmost disregard for seeming. The long bows  and ends have certainly the merit of  covering deficiencies, which is, perhaps, their reason for existence.  ;.'.''' MORE  FORCE.

Cold soda or baking powder biscuits  may bo warmed up by dipping each ono  quickly into cold water and plaoing in  a pan in a moderately hot ovon. Light  rolls should have tops and bottoms  brushed over with cold water and  treated in the same way ; unless left in  tho oven long enough to rebako and  thus get hard; their "last estate is  equal to their first," and they can  scarcely^be told from those freshly  baked. ���������        '  If pies are lightly sprinkled with  cold water before setting in the oven  they can be warmed up with little  danger of scorching, and be as good  as   fresh,   says   the  Housekeeper.  Gingerbread is so much better warm  than cold, but it is too much work to  bake it fresh every time it is*- wanted.  Wo used to try steaming or reheating in the oven, but neither is very  satisfactory. Finally we tried baking  it in small round or square' loaves,  about enough for two meals in each  one. To. warm them iup, brush the top  lightly with cold water and put in  a pan on the oven grate, with at least  a quart.of boiling water in the oven  under it. The steam from this keeps  it.moist and fresh as it warms; it can  be reheated a second tune aud still he  as good as when freshly baked. A pan  with a perforated bottom is preferable to a tight one, to use in warming  up bread or cake.  Rice, oatmeal or other cereals may  bo warmed up by returning to the double boiler, and healing, in tliat way,  but as they must be stirred occasionally to heat evenly they are nicer to  put into a pan in a closely covered  steamer over a kettle of boiling water,  and steamed until thoroughly healed.  Almost all vegetables, excepting potatoes, that are left over aro better  to be warmed up in the steamer than  by adding a little hot water and reheating on the stove, as is usually done.  It takes longer but they lose none of  their flavor in that way, as they do by  escape of steam when heated on the  stove. If not convcivsnt to use the  steamer, the next best way is to set  thetn on the grate in the oven, with a  pan of boiling water underneath. They  require less attention than warmed on  the stove, are not so apt to scorch,  and have a better flavor.  All nations feel more or less tho original impetus giveu them by one great  man,  but  probably  none  so  much  as  modern Ru-isia.   It may almost be said  to have been the creation of one man,  Peter  the Great, and the features he  impressed upju the Russian  state are  still distinctly  visible. A muss of barbarism  was  transformed by  him into  a powerful and active member of the  family of civilized nations, lie gave to  his subjects an army, an navy and an  educational   system.    Commerce, with  foreign  countries,    previously  forbidden, he warmly encouraged, 'the autocrat   transferred  his    capital    to   tha  shores   of   the  Baltic,   and  built    the  great city which bears his name to be   "  the open door to the civilization of the  Western world. He introduced the arts,  the  literature,   the  sciences ' and   the  economic theories ot the advanced nations.   Russia at the presen day is ac-.  luaLed by the ideasi of tho great Czar.  In its restless ambition, its subtle and  unscrupulous     policy,   its    varnish   ot i  culture,   scarcely   hiding   the   verocity  culture,  scarcely  hiding    the  ferocity  of    the    barbarian,  its  intolerance oi  popular liberty and its real solicitude  for   the  material  welfare  of the people, the Russia of to-day is the Russia,  ot Peter the Great.

The advance samples of what we are  to expect in summer hosiery give evidence 'that'no    whim of    the  loom  or  dream of color will be omitted in.the  display   for  the  coming season.      The  fancy front style seems    best    represented, and truly the opportunities for  elaboration are in  this mode best developed.   This front may extend on'y  to what is known as boot top, although  they must  mean, a high  bicycle    bcot  thereby; others  roach  almost  to    the  knee, while, still others only cover the  instep     well.

Nothing  more  beauti.ul  could  be cuiceived, unless it is a pair  of  pali-  green  silk,with    a    front of  white lace, running up to a point calf ,  depth, and clocked in white silk. There  are dozens of styles; each prettier 1 nan  the other, but a delicacy of coior teems  to have succeeded the brilliance of last  season,   and   oven   where  darker  tints  are selected tho.y are brightened with  a touch of pale, color either in the fairy  front  or in the embroidery,'which was  never before  &o handsomely  wrought.  Expense, seems not to count at all, but  aftei   viewing  the   liigher-v/riced samples  it   is  quite    a  comfort,'   to  know,  that  really  pretty designs and colors  are also reproduced at reasonable figures.

The Ruth tram is now virtually completed as the buckets go up and down  as working requirements call for their  operation, and" work is pushed energetically on the concentrator.  The Nelson Miner in its report of  the Miners' Union pic-nic said at tho  evening parade, "the members turned  out 10 strong." What a conception of  the "strength" of this important mining camp.  Karl's Clover Eoot Tea is a pleasant  laxative. Regulates the bowels, purifies the blood. Clears the complexion.  Easy to take and pleasant to take. 25  cts.   Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  The Kaslo police officials must conclude that Sandon has cither a very  healthy atmosphere or very successful  doctors, when people too sick to go to  Kaslo at I p.m. oue day can go to Spokane at 1 a.m. next day.  Ladies, take the best. If you arc  troubled with constipation, sallow  skin, and a tired feeling, take Karl's  Clover Tea. It is pleasant to take.  Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  G. M. Valentine, cashier of a New  Jersey bunk, stole ������208,000 of the  bank's money and got G years for it.  That ib ������34,066 a year. It would pay  most ol us to go down a year or two at  that rate of money making.  Dr. Wood's Norway Pine Syrup wa6  the first and original ''pine" preparation for coughs and colds. All others  haying the name "pine" are simply  imitations, sonic of them worthless.  It would not be a bad idea if the  chief or some one else would choke off  eonie of the language at times heard  on the west end oi Reco ave. Respectable ladies sometimes have to travel  there and they should not be shocked  at what they hoar on the way.  "Keep the head cool and the bowels  open," is sensible advice to follow this  warm weather. If the bowels do not  move regularly, take Laxu-Liver Pills.  They are small in size, easv to take,  and do not gripe, weaken or sicken.  There are cigars and cigars, but if  you really want a good healthy smoke,  of a cigar that will not rob vour purse,  you will use the "Interior" or "La  Morena" liuiiuilactured by the Inland  Cigar Manufacturing Co. of Kamloops.  O110 trial carries conviction.  Col. Pearson and C. J. S.uith went  fishing l0 Wilson creek, the other day  Tbe weather of the past few weeks  has been almost unbearably hot.  Esterhazy now admits that he wrote  the Cordereau for which Dreyfus was  sentenced.  The Shamrock was an easy winner in  the celebrated boat race, at the English Regatta.  "Fighting" Joe is now accused of  champerty.   Why not call it bigamy,  which the public can understand?  1  Mclnnes is still out at his fishing for  flukes,   and Martin is  down   in California hunting for gun cotton to lire at  Carter Cotton. '  We are requested to say that the  Rev. Mr. Beer Iuib decided to discontinues Anglican church services in  town until further notice.

Sold tit  McQueen's Drug Store.  ft Word on BEEF TEftS.  Meat extract resembles Beef Tea made at  home in the fact that it contains no nourishment at all. Hard doctrine this for the  ladies who think that nothing can equal  their own make.    How is  PERSONAL   MENTION.  A. W. Wright and Mrs. Wright are  rusticating at Slocan City.  Mr. Perry, of the. Noble Five, came  in from Victoria, Friday.  Miss Hammond went to Slocan City  011 Thursday, preparatory to tho family moving there for the summer.  Nourishing then? Because it is not a meat  extract only; it contains in addition the  nourishing qualities of pure lean ox bsef  highly concentrated and pulverized. Eovril  is, therefore, superior to , meat extracts or 1  beef tea.  It is said that "Shady" Geigerich has  gone to the Coast to murry a former  Sandon lady. There arc others than  miners striking of late.  Mr. Latta, who is considerably interested in the Lardeau country, spent  some days last week in the city visiting his old acquaintance Mr. Oscar  White.  Mr. F. A. Wood, of the Last Chance  mine, and bride arrived in the city by  K.& S. on Tuesday, and have taken up  their residence in the neat new house  erected this spring at the lower terminal of the tram.  Messrs. Yawkey in  the City.  Messrs. W. H. and W. C. Yawkey, of  Detroit, Mich., principal owners of the  Ivanhoe   and  Sunshine mining interests,  and   largely   interested in other  local properties,   are spending   some  days in the camp taking in   the situation.   There  is no doubt  but that  if  this labor trouble had not taken place,  their concentrator   and probably   two  trams  would be now well under way.  If they were even assured that a speedy  settlement  was at hand,   thc3r   would  commence   tho   undertaking.      Their  story is only that ot all others���������a regret  that  tho government precipitated the  trouble   when    the   muu   themselves  never sought the legislation.     These  gentlemen, in addition to the interests  they   now   own   hero,    would   secure  others il they were sure there would be  reasonable permanancy in our laws.  The natural exuberance of  youth often leads to recklessness.      Young   people   don't  take care of themselves, get  I over-heated,  catch cold, and  allow it to settle on the kidneys.   They don't realize the  j significance    of   backache���������  I think it will soon pass away���������  Jbut it doesn't.    Urinary Troubles   come,    then   Diabetes,  Bright's Disease and shattered  health.  A young- life has been sacrificed.  Any help for it ?   Yes!  BQA1TS KIDNEY PILLS.  These conquerors of Kidney Ills are  making the rising generation healthy and  strong.  Mrs. G. Grisman, 505 Adelaide St., London.  Ont., says:  "My daughter, now 13 years old, lias had  ���������weak kidneys since infancy, and her health as  a consequence has always been poor. Tifo  boxes of Doan's Kidney Pills havo removed  every symptom of kidney trouble, and restored  her to perfect health.

He says it was a  charr weighing 10} lbs, but some of las  irientl.., not as'Hiodest as he, say it was  "a whale."  Nelson Tribune : "Advices from the  Slocan are that the mining companies  are one by cue breaking away from the  mine managers' compact, and it is not  unlikely that work will be resumed all  along the line within a month." Will  the Tribune please name ostk mine  that has broken away from what it  calls "the combine?"  Geo. K. Morton, "Private Banker,"  St. Thomas, Ont., issues a prospectus  of the Silver Bell Mineral Claim, saying wages are 53.00. for 8 hours and  $3.50 for 10. He does not understand  B. C. law as well as he does Ontario  "private banking," for instance, or he  would be aware that 10 hours work are  not allowed under any circumstances.  Kaslo had a peculiar police court  case the other day : A man interested  in a mine was arrested, and he feed  one of the law-firms. The Beak asked  the other law firm to actwith him, but  he could get no satisfaction from them  as they were interested in   the mine  '��������� also. He then sent' to Sandon for AD-.  Grimnielt to advise with him. Tne  case reminds one of tho Irish jury who  'were! charged by the judge to bring in  a verdict against a prisoner, accused of  stealing a pig, but withal,they declared  him "not guilty." The judge asked  the foreman why it was the jury all  went so straight against the evidence,  "Well, your honor," said the foreman,  "the fact is we ail had a piece of the  pig."  The president of a large telephone  system has olfered to pay a million  dollars for a telephone repeater which  would be as efficient in telephony as  the telegraph repeater is iu telegraphy.  .From the earliest days of the telephone  to the present time inventors have  sought to make such repeaters, and as  early as 1S78 it was thought that the  problem had been solved. It is probable that if such a plan is invented,  the experiments leading up to it .will  be along entirely new lines, for already  a large number of trained telephone  inventors have tried their hands at it  and have failed.
