Queen Victoria began to reign in tho  year 1837 she ascended the throne,  when she was IS years of ago. She.  has reigned longer than any queen or  king in the world. Tho Queen wns  born in Kensington Palace, she was  beautiful iii looks and disposition.  Soon after she was born her father the  Duke of Kent died and did not live  long enough to see his little daughter  crowned. She married Prince Consort.  on February 10th, 1840. Her fath.'r  was the third son of George III The  Queen had not less' than sixty-eight  descendants. AJ'dr her facher died,.,  till she ascended the thrbn'o she never  left her mother's t..cd-diiinibor. Wh n  she was 12 years Ji i^i she was told  she was to become queen after -William's-death", ' she wri?j pleased but did  not boast of if, as i������ianv would havo  done but put her hand up and said,. "I  will be good, I will be good," and we  find that such a Queen and .I'.ic.li a  woman never filled swell a throne.

Where did  the camel get, its hump?  Be it known that camels did, not originally ha.ve humps on their backs.  So : says Professor Cattaneo, '.of the  Italian Institute of Science. Tlie proof  that they did not an-d the. explanation'  of why they have them, now is given  by this savant iu a recently published  monograph, which is the <������������������ result of  eciientifie   study   of   the  subject.  Tho llama is known to have been  used as a beast of burden centuries  before tlie discovery of' the western  hemisphere, ; but. it-Ms asserted that  thousands of years before the first  llama carried a load'upon his back the  camel liad been domesticated and was  used for. the , transportation of bur-  dend.  It is upon this point .that the Italian  savant rests his fhtory as to the- i-  mation of thai animal's hump, in the  bC'Slnuing, he says, the camel, -like the  Uaina, .wits s!raigV.t of back, but a hundred centir.-ie.-,. rurhaps, of making a  pjick animal of the ciinu-l have brought  about the change. A' first the> skin  grew loose upon tlie camel's 1 -ae-k.  Then th<!!-e and upon its knees the skin  grew thick and callous. -Scion nature  began to pad this burdened' par1: with  fat and muscle; then for c-ijumiets generations heredity did^its woik; little  by little the hump grew, until it nnal-  ly acquired its' present size.

It may be safer  for   the  government   to retain   such a   power  than to-vest it in the House, but when  it will   be necessary' to exercise such  power in the hands of either House or  ions during modern times, the Cretans  government,   it .is difficult  to see.'

Our' growth certainly would be slower,  as it would not be as likely to increase  commercial houses  and ill-considered  investments, but  it   would   be   more  satisfying as time went on,   and highly  gratifying in the end.  The   fact   that mineral   in. paying I  quantities is found  in all   sections   of  the   Kootenay   country,   the   general  topography  of   the   country   goes   to  show that  instead  of our  cities with  hundreds of thousands   of population  everywhere, the country will be dotted  over with towns and villages every few  .  miles apart; and those   of. them  that  are best  commercially  situated, .and  have the most enterprising, citizens will  become to an extent supply centres for  their surroundings, and this is'all __.that  can be said   about it.    No one place  will be allowed to become  an octopus  and  swallow all  the business of the  '   the country, either through commercial  or mining possibilities.     For this reason   realestate and  commercial  sites  should  never reach  fabulous figures.  The lesson learned - from   booming in  mining  and   real   estate  in. that town  should be   a health lesson to the  rest  of the country for a   reasonable   time  at least.

It is through a mountain pass on the  northern frontier of Greece that Turkey made its success in the late war,  and it was the International Boundary  commission of iSSr that left that open  door for the Sultan of Turkey.'  In the   Greek . of the present   time  the essential   traits of hi  ccstors are   either  apparent or   lying  dormant, to be called into existence, a  circumstance   that  of itself   ought   to  call   for   the   sympathies  of modern  times.

At that time   James   Brazed, Patrick Kinvin and George Wolls,  the well-known engineers, visitacl   the  couritry about Kootenay and Rossland,  and produced it   particularly, rich   in  gold, silver and   copper,   the   greatest  drawback being the   tremendous   stratum of granite in  many  instances   40  feet thick, interfering with   the   work  of mining.  Brazell had then a proposition before  the English government to send' out a  party of1,500 prospectors, covering an  area, of ten miles through British  Columbia in a northwesterly direction  from Rossland, the different camps being in constant -communication with  the main office of engineers that would  follow along,in their trail.  The cost of such an expedition was  sucbctbatthe English'or Canadian governments would have nothing to do  with it, the hazard being one that the  home secretary could not countenance.

For   the  three   centuries, they  have   been  bondsmen   of the  Turks,   and  than half their number are   still unde  Turkish domination.      But this  is not  the   worst.       The   ambitions  of    the  great powers  arc   at  cross  purposes  with   their   national   welfare.    : They  have been petted and rebuked in turn  by the   nations   of Europe.     Even  in  clieir present struggle with Turkey   the  shells'' bursting   in  their   ranks   have  come from  Christian (?) fleets   as well  as Turkish guns.     Enlightened Europe  admits cheir aiuse is a   righteous one,  but it has defeated it  again and again  I for selfish purposes  with heartlcssncss.  for J In ages past Greece was  a noble na-  iiastern or other investors  who sink  money in   the stocks  of mining   companies, of which they know nothing but  what they gather from the   "hifallutin"  circulars of thycompanies and lose must  not.consider mining a disappointment,  hi any form.    It is strange that people  who'know there are fakirs in all  other  walks of life���������agriculture;  mercantile,  professional, etc.���������expect angels  only  in mining enterprise, whose every word  must   be   accepted   implicitly.      One  man floats a scheme   representing that  he wants  to raise   a   certain   sum   for  development work,   and  4 to 10  cent  shares   are bit  at with  avidity.    The  project or in some cases, without  taking much   trouble   to enquire whether  or hot there is much to his find, quietly  puts   the money he   realises   into   his  own pockets, and reports  the "devel-1  English cajiitnlists who believe  111   its  merits sufficiently to. send   forth   150,,  men from this city to work the English |  territory.  .These miners, at the hand of whom  is James Brazell, left on the overland  train last evening for Oregon. They  are all men picked from the heads of  departments in the mines of the. Coin-  stock where Brazell was superintendent  of the Bullion und other mines _in the  days el'the bonanza.  "I believe that   the   country   about  Kootenay,"   said    Brazell     yesterday  afternoon, "is one of the richest oji the  face of the globe-     There   is   a  groat  deal of territory to cover, and  I   think  that with a sufficient number   of  men  who know their business   I  can   eventually locate the entrance  to  at   least  such another bonanza as we found   25  years ago in Nevada.     I   am   starting  with only   150   men.      They   will   be  divided into   prospecting   camps   and  cover   the   territory   as   speedily    as  possible, so as tc find a proper starting  point.   If I had 1,500 men, as I first demanded,  I   could   move' along   more  speedily, but 1 am well satisfied   with  the number I have got.   I feci assured,  in my own mind, that before   90   days  pass over I wiil   have   enough   work  ahead of me to bring up  1,000   miners  from California."

the government does not givcall points

it when tin re was but a tri-weekly"boat

great deal; but to'expect it now   who n
it can be got by employing two or three
extra mail clerics and a small sum  for
conveyance, is not  certainly: demanding too much,-when the postal revenues
arc taken into account.   It is   safe'' to
saythe  revenues   of  this   section' of

Christmas morning, ,- the long-parted
met again, and there was -nothing' but
gladness and love; and while', the sun-,
shine; does <nol deepen tlie shadow in
this gloomy dwelling, I can tell the
brief story of,: my life���how and why
I came to -Ullamere.  ,,
My. mother, Mahel Ave-ril, came of a
gipd   old  English   family.     When  not
more  than, seventeen    she ;' ran  away
with her drawing-master, Alec Forster,
a, young ..artist,   who   had   dreams: of
making   a   name   and   winning   fame.
Her   f ami I y. never   forgave   her,/ and'"
my father took her to Paris.: There he
'struggled  long    and    arduously.    The
host   engagement     he     had,'  was    as
drawing-master to  the pupils of Mrne.
Pudevant,  who had a large and fasti-
ior.able scho'ol in the Champs Elysees.
He died suddenly of fever when I was.
four  years" old;  and  Mme. , Dudevant,
who   'was    a,, kind-hearted,     woman,
offered my. mother a situation as English  teacher in'.her school.    My education   was. to  be-Jier  recompense���and,
truly,- I   received   a/ first-class   education.    Had  I  been   the  daughter of' a
peeress .Instead    of   .a  poor. ' English
tfacher,   she   could   not'���-, have     taken
greater pains with me.    On my life at
,the Parisian, pension I need not dwell.
My -mother  died  when I , was    nearly
eighteen; and after tiia't I could never
endure the place,,it was so full of painful  memories  for     me,   Madame    was
very good;  when I   told  her how unhappy i felt,  she  said  the, best   thing,
we.uld  be  for  me  to' take  a  situation
In England.    She answered an  advertisement for a young lady who spoke
French,  German.and Italian, and was
well acquainted with  the literature of
the  three countries:    It was  essential
lhat  she  should  also   be  an  excellent
musician   and   a   good    singer.      The
salary proposed was most liberal, arid
a comfortable though exceedingly ciuiet
home  was  offered.   ' '  l
"You will be very fortunate." said
Madame pudevant to me,- "if you
secure, this." -
Very fortunate indeed in a great
many respects ! The salary was ono
hundred per annum: the situation was
that of,,companion to Lady Culmore,
the wife of Sir Rudolph' Culmore, of
Brooke, residing now at. Ullamero, in
La r cash ire. Madame thought she had
some reason for conrratulatii-.g- -me,
and I was only too delighted to" have
an opportunity of seeing England, the
land I loved. ,
It. was on the, twenty-third of December that I left Madame Dudevant,
the school" "and the gay sunny land
of France. I was eighteen the same
month. My experience of life was
limited.to/that of a boarding school. I
had a vague idea that all-marfied people were very happy, never. having
lived with" any.. The only men I'had
sr-en were the masters who attended
the school and the fathers and brothers
of the boarders.
So, young and inexperienced, I was
plunged into what I felt must be the
very heart of a tragedy.
Sirs. Harper came to. nay that Eady.
Culmore was not very well, and would

���' "A beautiful Christmas," I replied,
���"just, as-1 had dreamed.of.it���all holly
and/laurel and mistleitoe. And 'I love
to hear the old,Christmas- carols." "';,
"I have not. been to church for so
long, I almosrforget: what' the "services 'are  like,"  she' said. s
"Do you not think it rathfer a pity
no'i to go to. clnircli ?'", I ventured to
ask.- "It does not matter whether our
trouble be of body or of mind, there
is  always  comfort  there."''
"It would .be useless 'for'me," she
said���"quite useless." .',"''���
. "But why ?" i asked.    "..-"���'.'���
And her face paled as she answered:
:   "If  man   can   not   forgive,   how  caii
.I-feav-eh  forgive,?"- y   '
^ "It- is just the reverse,", I answered.
"It, matters little about" man forgiving,-
if Heaven  forgives.      But    you��� Oh,
Xindy  Culmore,' %Vhat a strang;e  thfng
for you to  say !  What can you have
done for such pardon to be required?"
They  were  imprudent ' words, - and,
had I stopped  to think,  I should not
have   uttered   them;   but  she   did  not
take them, amiss.,. I saw ,a.faint motion   of 'her  hands,    as    though '. she
would fain wring them,  and then she
turned away. ������'���..* '.,
"Lady Culmore," I said to her. presently; "if you have a few minutes to
spare, I should like to know what my
duites are. Up to the present ttae I
have not done anything for you."
"Your duties," she repeated, vaguely���"your duties as , a .companion to,
me ? It was Sir Rudolph who insisted
that I should have a companion: I d'o
not" know. He thought I wanted some
one/to be with me."
"What shall I be able to do to help
you.?" I asked.
"I hardly know," she replied.' "Can
you comfort me when I am most miserable ���?" ,  ���  , y   ��� .
"I will do my best," I answered; and
she turned from me with a low moan."
"I  want  comfort,''   she   said���"comfort always."
.never w.bnt"out-with'her... He went his
v/ay,��� she v.'ent hers. ��� He never'inter--

never.'pffered any  comment,  any suggestion;- in fact,' between :fhem a- gulf
lay wide and deep as the graye:   But
Bady Culmore, I could see, had a .wild,
."passionate' adoration.for her husband'.
She loved him', so;well thatislie trembled" at  the" sound.".'of  his; footsteps,, at

always 'full  of  entreaty, ���fui!   of ,pain

I could not describe the misery of
Sir Rudolph's household.' What the
shadow was that lay over it I was
unable to guess. I-Iusband and wife
were both young and handsome; they
had almost every gift that Heaven'
could bestow; 'nothing-��� was wanting,
so far as I could see to complete their
happiness; yet they were further
apart, it .seemed to me, than if a
grave had lain between them���a thousand   times  further apart.
That   first     Christmas    Day   that  I
spi-nt  in England will never, die from
my memory.    Wo did' not see Sir Rudolph until  dinner-time���seven  o'clock ;
and  then   it  appeared  to  me  that my
remonstrance     respecting      Christmas
I?ay had reached the "kitchen,  for the
dinner    comprised   .something    in    the
shape..of Christmas fare���a turkey and
a-plum  pudding.  Some  one,   in a  moment  of  ill-advised   enthusiasm,     had
placed   a pretty  little sprig of  holly���
a few glossy leaves, with a fair,sprinkling of red  berries-���on  tho  top,-of the

then  turned  to  the butler.        ���   >'
"AVhat  is  this?"  he asked.
'���Holly,   Sir  Rudolph,"   he   replied.   ,
"And  why  has  it  been  put  there?"
he continued.
"I    thought  ��� perhaps ��� Christmas

\    " Take   it   away -"   commanded   Sir
Rudolph,   sternly.
And the butler, with great , pertur- '
ballon of manner and a crimson face,
removed the unfortunate' sprig of holly.
I read the expression of Sir Rudolph's
face, and it said, as plainly as words
could speak, "I will have no rejoicing,
no outward sign of rejoicing, in this

Rossland, the great  and .' growing   business centre, has been   styled the "Bull's

called the-Bull's  Eye of the   World.    It.

, The vast number of mines' and prospective mine's with which, on every

to-day one of tho most talked ef and
universally admired spots on Earth.
As :\ field for profitable and safe investment the Trail Creek Camp stands
without-a rival. One year ago there
were   but  two  shipping- mines;   now
there arc twenty,  and everything else
1 nis increased in proportion.
Wc have every reason to believe
that, under the excellent management,
judging by the business-like manner
in which everything in connection
