I  Another' Promising Group Near Sandon  "Coming to the Fore.  What promi<,es to be one of Sandon'  largest mines are the holdings of the  Sunshine Mining Company, Limited,  which   arc distant   two miles nem-ly  due west.; Tho claims in the property  are   Beven   in   number���������the   Oregon,  Yakima, Sunshine Fraction, Santiago,  Mine, Sunshine and Noondny���������and all  bought from   the   original owners or'  locators.     So far   as  work  has  gone,  three    ledges    of   large   proportions  have been found.   One runs  through  the Yakima and Mine, on  which,  all  told, somo 1500 feet of workings have  been made.   As the ledges are well defined  in surface eroppings, but  little  cross-cutting   has   been   found necessary, consequently the first working is  a tunnel on the vein, next followed  a  shaft higher up on tlie vein und drifting   from   the   shaft.     The workings  throughout the entire property are in  good mineral, assays from which show  100  oz. silver,   65 per cent, lead   and  some gold, in a 3 to 4 feet vein, whose  gangue is quartz, calcite and hpathic  iron.   The next work is on tho load of  the west side of the Sunshine, on  tho  west of the mountain,   which  ridg-.-fi  through the property.    This consists  of two tunnels, No. 1 4G5 feet long, and  No. 2 589 feet, the latter of which will  be continued through tho mountain at  an approximate length   of 1,000 foot,  from  which a tram for tho ore of the  whole property will bo built to Sandon.  The gangno in nil veins  is very similar, and m this there is a paystreak G  to IS inches wide of high grade galena  and, crbonatcs.     About 500 feet   of  "'   vortical depth  under  the apex  r������j" the  mountain lias been reached.  On tlie etist side of-the ridge two  tunnels have' been driven into this  property, on tlie vein also, one 105 feet  and tiio other 100, with the same characteristics of ledge.  On tho Noonday claim of tho property ii cross-cut of 150 feet has been  run, tapping the ledge at considerable  depth. From this a drift of SO feet  each way has been made in excellent  ore also.  A quantity of ore has been shipped  from tho Yakima and Sunshine by  previous owners, but since the present  owner* got hold of the property in  1893 they have given more attention  to development.  Messrs. P. J. Hickey, Yawkey and  J. D, Farell, interested in the Sunshine, are also owners of separate  properties, adjoining the group, which  give much promise of success when  worked. Perhaps 1,000 feet of work  has been done on the claims to the  present. Mr. Hickey is the manager  - for all these together with the Minnesota Silver Co.'s properties, and interested in Boundary mines, including  the Funtenay, which keeps him a very  busy man.  The resolutions, as above, wero  ordered sent to tho different Miners'  Unions in Kootenay anil to the press,  and bear the signatures of a committee  unpointed for the purpose. The is A.  15. Teeter, R. M. Covington and J. E.  Skinner.  How the Ministers Stood.  Victoria,  May 26.���������Since Attorney-  General Martin  set the fashion of revealing cabinet  discussions   his   colleagues -appear to have become   less  reticent,   and now the  veil ia   lifted  from   another scene.    It seems  that  when the  eight-hour law enforcement  came up  Minister Cotton   warned his  colleagues that this  would be a rash  step   and likely to lead to serious results.   He appealed to Semlin if this  was not his view, no doubt sure of hiB  ground,  but   the premier declined to  give   an ��������� opinion.     Attorney-General  Martin, it is said, bluntly asserted that  the   labor vote   held   the balance   ol  power, and the government must obey'  its dictation.   "Isn't that so, Semlin ?"  he asked, but the careful old man replied that he had not given the matter  consideration.   Hume advised ' moderation as between the conflicting intci-  ests, and he, too, appealed  to Semlin,  but without result, whereupon Hume  professed   that   many   miners   would  rather work ten hours than   to   have  their wages reduced, but that the labor  organizations on tho Coast appeared to  force   the nands ,of the   government.  This brought a declaration   from Mc-  Keclmie, president ol" the council, that  he was the moulhpicoe   of th.   Nan-  nimo minors' union, and no didn't-care  who knew it.    lie was for enforcing  tho eight-hour law.    Premier Semlin  held   tne   bahuico' of power   but   he  would not uso it, and Martin's remark  that, "'Well, eight hours goes from the  12t.li of June," settled the question.  ��������� MmffigtMi��������� ��������� ,'  Canadian Claim Staggered Them.  . III ffl COURTS.  Some Important Cases Being Tried  at the Nelson Assizes.  Mack, of Slocan City, cannot identify  any of those arrested on suspicion of  stabbing him, and, as a consequence,  they were freed of the charge by the  court.  Washington, May 27.���������1\> clear up  misunderstandings which appear to  exist in London, and to some degree, in  this country, as to tho exact status of  the negotiations between tho United  States and Great Britain respecting  Oanadian-Amerioui Usue.s, the following statements of tne events that led  up to tho present conditions were secured from tho best authority. When  tho commission adjourned some  months ago it was because it had  reached an apparently insurmountable  obstacle in the shape of tho Alaskan  boundary question.  Since then the Washington officials  have been surprised to have presented  what they regard as an extr.iord'nary  condition which Canada imposes in  connection with the submission of the  question' of arbitration. This condition, coming alter the arbitration plan  had been formally postponed and was  about to be accepted, caaged not only  surprise but some indignation among  the officials here. It was decided not  to accept this condition and peremptory refusal was given to the proposition. Thus the matter stands. There  is every reason to believe that there  wilt be no yielding of the officials here  to Canada's condition.  The following were drafted for service on the grand jury for the assize,  which opened in Nelson this week :  John Ban nerrnan, Henry E. Conn on,  M. DcsBrissay, H. J. Evans, A. C.  Ewart, W. A. Jbwett, N. T. M.ieLeod,  Thomas M. Ward, William J. Wilson,  Fred Irvine, H. It. Bellamay, Charles  Hillyer and W. P.Tieruey.  So far thero arc some thirteen cases  upon the civil list for tho present assize. Tho case of MacJonald vs. Hurt-  man is au action to recover the price  of a consignment of groceries, which  were sold by the A. Macdonald Company to the defendant, but which were  lost in tho Ainsworth disaster.  Darts vs. the St. Kevorne Mining  Company, is an action to determine  whether or not a mineral claim may  consist of more than one piece of land.  Armstrong vs. Richardson is an action over tne Erin mineral claim in  the Iiiccillewaet mining division.  Anderson vs. Bolauder is an action  for money due lor a tunnel driven  upon the dcfendant's,-mineral elaiin.  Kelly vs. the Hall Mines is an aation  over the expropriation of the land covering tho Dandy mineral claim for the  defendants tramway.  The case of Alexander vs. Heath and  Heap ia an ant-ion to set aside the s.\ie  of the plaintiff's interest in" the Pon-  tiac mineral claim, which at present  is being operated by Fmuk Heap.  McMillan vs. Sandilands is an action  for an accounting by the defendant as  assignee in his dealings with the estate of McMillan & Crawford, of Sandon.  Davis vs. Cummings is an action for  the recovery ot tfl.SOO for wages due as  clerk gt the Hotel Slocan,at Ka.������-lo.  Eutwud Quiuliiu c:;mi< up beiwla W.  A. Jowott, J.

Drewery.  this week,  M.E., was in the city  Will Back Up the Unions.  At a public-meeting held in Slocan  City Friday night week the following  resolutions were passed:  Whereas certain mine owners have  publicly announced their intention ol  reducing the wages of all mine workers  upon the taking effect of tho eight-  hour law ; and, whereas, tlieir reasons,  as set lorth in'such announcement, for  attempting such are either* the result  of selfishness or lack of sound reasoning, and show an unfairness in attempting to arbitrarily establish a reduced scale of wages ; and we further  believe that well-paid, healthful, intelligent workers make desirable residents of a country, and that humanity  and civilization in .North America now  demand better conditions and better'  wages for its workers than prevail in  European arid other countries, and that  the government has done a commendable act in establishing the eight-hour  law in mining; and believing that the  best interests ofthe country will < be  promoted by the enforcement of the  eight-hour law and maintaining the  regular rate of wages as heretofore  paid in mines,   '   ��������� ,-' 1  Therefore be it resolved, that we, the  miners, prospectors and citizens of Sio-  : can City, hereunto subscribed, pledge  Gurselves to abide by the actions ofthe  Miners' Unions of the Slocan, and we  extend to them our sympathy and support in their efforts to maintain the  present scale of wages in (tne mines,  and that we will not work for less nor  pay less than the union rate.  M������a������ni  Send in Your Orders.  Mine and prospect holders and business people, generally, who want to  help advertise the Slocan District  should send in their orders to The Review oflicc, at once, for the number of  copies of the pamphlet which Mr.  Cliffe is publishing on tho resources of  tlie District. The pamphlet will not  be a picture book to please children,  as some of the proposed publications  are designed to be, though it will have  numerous cuts mi mining operations;  but it will be choke full of hardfacts  and statistics of mining capabilities of  the country. The design is to place  the possibilities and capabilities of  the District in a, comprehensive and  presentable shape to the monied man  who is prepared to invest in mining  operations.

Goldsong wi'l leave next  week for a two months' visit with  friends in Northport.  Hughio Cox, the popular cook at the  Star mine, eonclu'ir'g llnu there aro  more important, and, ��������� withal, more  pleasant, issues in life to meet than  eight-hour laws, left Tuesday morning  for his old home in Osseo, Wisconsin.  It will bo iu order for the. band, of  which he is a member, to greet him  with "The Village Bride*' on his return  some weeks hence.  Last Monday was a great day for the  Dalys. Mr: John had returned but a  i'ewdnys bofore from his visit south  and -/est, to be present at the Payne  meeting, and Mr. T. M., of Rossland,  was in town for the same purpose. In  appearanee they are not so much unlike thai they might not be taken for  brothers, though after comparing notes  they arc unable to find any relationship, either through cousins or aunts,  since the days of St. Patrick.  Bar silver is quoted at Gl cents in  New York.  The California is hiring men at S3.50  for the eight-hour day.  The Queen Bess has nearly 10 feet of  clean ore in sight, which is'one of the  best showings in the country. This  will yet be a great properr.y.  Before the new proprietors of the  Madison group left -town last week  they let a contract to Mr. Warner to  driven 500-foot tunnel, and this will  be done irrespective of conditions in  the labor market.  Water is playing an important part  in_ throwing men <.out of work in the  mines hereabout these titnos. The  Last Chance has shut down nearly  wholly till the spring freshets are over;  the Payne has laid off its stopers ; the  Selkirk has shut up as supplies cannot  be got up, and most all the others have  diminished forces to the least possible  number to keep things moving. The  spring is very tardy so the summer's '  work will be \cry late commencing.  It is F. S. Davis and not I?. A., as  stated lust"week, that is the manager  of the Heather Belle property, adjoining the Queen Bess on the north-east  near Three Forks. Ho is going to put  six men to work on Monday, paying'  S3.50 for the eight-hour day. Already  there are 1,000 feet of workings on the  four claims and a fraction constituting  the group. There are three leads on  property and work has oeen done on  two of them, on one of which there ia  a drift of 60 feet. They have some ore  on the dump, but have shipped none  to the present. They have had several  assays of 210 oz. silver and 59 per cent,  of lead.  Mountain  Climbing.  The Canndian Pacific Railway Co,  has stationed Swiss guides at Banff,  Likes in the Clouds and (Tta^ipr for  tlie convenience ol" tourists wishing to  explore the mountains in those vicinities. Ask for a copy of "Swiss Guide"  folder.  CHURCH    NOTES.  Slocan City Mews-Items.  Hospital Notes.  R.Marshall, of the Queen Bess, and  Frank Ryan, of the Payne, are both  down with pneumonia.  "Doc" Gkasbn is recovering, and R.  Rickard continues very ill.  A TORONTO CONTRACTOR.  ' Mr. J. J. Marklc, 257 Lansdowne  Ave., the well known bridge contractor,  was cured by Milburn's Rheumatic  Pills of a severe attack of rheumatism,  which laid him up in bed for weeks.  I-  The Slocan City Assault Case.  William   Watson,    Tnom'as   Dunn,  George Moore, L. Dingman and   J. D.  Kelly   were brought to Nelson   from  tilocan City  upon suspicion  of being  implicated in stabbing E. J. Mack, tho  man at present in the general hospital.  Watson and Dunn  ivere found by constable   Christie   taking   Mack   somewhere for medical treatment.     They  professed   ignorance   as   to   how   the  wound   was    inflicted.     They   were  placed   under arrest,   and   the   three  other  men,   who  wore camped   with  them near Slocan Citj',  were also arrested.   When arrested Dunn admitted  having stabbed  Mack,   but   when he  sobered up he denied all knowledge of  the offence.   Ail live men yill be held  for vagrancy until Mack is'sufficiently  recovered   to identify   the man   who  stabbed him,  and to testify what part  the others played in the affair.   They  were brought, to Nelson by  constable  Forbes.  .    ASSIZES NOTES.  Bruno, the Italian, tried for murder,  has been acquitted.  Ostby, the Three Forks naan before  the court for perjury, has been a'c-  quited.'  John McGinty, who tried to fire the  Chinamen out of Sandon some months  ago, has been sentenced to a month's  imprisonment for the act.  A public meeting of miners _ and  workingmen was held in the Wilson  House Friday night and resolutions  passed endorsing the stand taken by  the Miners' Union of Silverton and  Sandon.  A  meeting   ������f the   owners   of  the  Black Prince was held   yesterday, at  which it was decided to work the property instead of bonding it.   The  last  assay taken was 227 ounces in silver.    I  R. A. Cameron,   of Three Forks, is )  here to look after tlie interests of  the  Cameraman company's property.  The snow is going off fast and those  with work to do are leaving for the  hills every day.  The Sringer creek wagon road is to  be advanced to the Arlington basin as  soon as possible. A government grant  of $400 has been given to repair the  damages to the part already constructed and $2,500 allotted for the  completion of the road.  Government agent Turner, of Nelson,  made an inspection of this locality,  satisfying himself as to the needsof  the various creeks for roads and trails.'  In the case of Kay vs. Callanan, over  the Molly Gibson group, on Kokanee  creek, the former is seeking to compel  the latter to make good an agreement  to accept a certlain number of shares  in the company in full settlement of  his claim to the property. Those  share, are valued at $18,000. The de-'  fendant wants $25,000 for his claims.  The case wiil come up, again for hearing next month.      . ���������'II'  Anglican-���������Rev.

^immediately the medicine-men
sprang forward to him, tlie musicians
set up a yell of triumph, and every
Indian in the tepee began to about at
,the top of hia lungs. Tho terrifying
.noise was at its height when suddenly
janother squaw walked forward to
Ithe centre of the lodge until she stood
'directly beneath tho opening. Be-
;hind hor cumo four medicine-men bearing upon a buffalo robe an Indian who
seemed to be dying. His pallid faco
as they laid him in tho sunshine, took
,on a more yastly hue. The closed-eyelids quivered an instant, but could not
open. At sight of the dying man, tho
frenzlod Indians ceased howling, and
in the silence which followed, the Indian woman, standing motionless, the
blazing sun beating down on her bare
head and uplifted face and hands, began a mournful sort o�� chant or invocation to tho sun and a prayor for
tho restoration of hor husband to
health. When shj3 ceased .speaking
she sank down beside tho man, but
still held her eyes turnod to the light.
Yellow Wolf crawled ovier to her and
whispered * fiercely in her ear for an
Instant. A look,of terror and despair
Bottled on her face, and she turned hor
eyes for ��� an instance on the white
woman, who, with pale and drawn
faces, were watching her. Yellow
Wolf sprang up with all the strength
that was left in him, and facing the
Indians, cried: "Do you Ihink (he Great
Falher will hear her or you whilo
these evil spirits are with us? I tell
vou. Great Hawk will die. Do you
"hear?" he screamed. "Great Hawk
will dio, and if he does, it is the whites
who killed him."
The Indian Black Tongue edged his
way through the crowd to Yellow
Wolf's side.
' "It is true what Yellow Wolf says,"
i be 3'elled. "Have they not given had
medicine to the Beaver and Yellow
Wolf? And did (hey not try to give
bad medicine to White Eagle? Only
because he is all-powerful did he pro-
rail. Can Great Hawk, who is ill and
helpless, ovorcome these evil spirits?"
There was a fierce howl from the
aow half-crazy Indians. Some of
them broke through, and would have
leaped into the open space had they
not been restrained by tho older chiefs
and   the   medicines-men.
Pretty Feathers stood up and
(vaved his hand for quiet, but only a
few of the howling, maddened; Indians
would  listen  to him. ''
"What aro you doing?" he shouled.
"Would you turn against the Great
Mother's children? ' jYou are fools,
madmen! Are you so fond ot the
guard-room, of the gallows? And
have they not been our friends? An-
swerl"
Yellow Wolf stood up again.
"Friends!" ho cried back scornfully,
"friends! They are our masters. Pah!
you old men are fearful. .We young
men ask but to fight, to kill. We shall
exterminate them. We shall be free.
Do (hey not bring trouble? Look at
Gold Eagle, at the Sword. , Look at
the Beaver and Yellow Wolf, fallen.
Listen," he cried in a penetrating voice
that reached even,the Indians farthest
off, "listen! If Groat Hawk doas not
die, I will oat my hot words���I will
say that I, Yellow Wolf, knew not
what I-spoke; but if the Manito recuses to hear mo, then' shall we know
that these whites have brought us
���trouble  and  evil  and  deserve  death.''
other    familiarly and condescendingly
as she rodo through in triumph.
Mrs. Eviston laid her hand on her
husband's arm. "Arthur," sho said
faintly, "Arthur���" Sho pointed to
Jack, and her lips moved unintelligibly.
Doyle leaned down .eagerly.
"For tho love of 'Eaven, Mrs. Eviston," ho gasped softly, "leave 'er
alone. They won't touch 'or, an' she'll
fix 'em���sho knows 'em."
When Jack reached the center of
the lodge, sho reined Nellie in, aware
all at once that sho might be interrupting lho proceedings, and a littio
puzzled at the strange and sudden
silence. She looked about her, smiling
brightly and fearlessly, though she was
a tr.ifle bewildered, and then down at
tho irresolute faces turned up to hor.
"Safsit, nitsitaffiakol", "Behold, I
am an Indian also 1" she said gaily,
pointing to her fantastic dress and feathers. Suddenly someihing seemed to
give way' in tho crowd. With a roar
of delight and childish amusement tho
mercurial Indians rushed forward to
Jack, pouring into ilie dancing-circle
and surging ahout her, laughing and
clapping their hands.
" Ninspaupit 1" she said magnificently from her lofty position on Nellie, and
cracking h'er quirt to keep them at a
proper   distance.
Pretty Feathers came leaping and
pushing his way to her through the
crowd.
"Puksiput!" she called out delightedly to him. He was her special friend
among   the chiefs.
" Kifaipuksapato," he answered,
hoarsely; and reaching her side he
sprang up behind her on Nellie. Standing upright on the astonished little
pony, he called to (he laughing, gesticulating,  excited  Indians.
" Behold,"   he    cried,  " here  is    the
proof  of   the  friendship of   the  Great
Mother and her children for us I Hero

would   you   have   done ?  Yellow  Wolf
would  have    persuaded you    to  your
death.    His  voice glided to your ears,
and  you  listened.    You    would    have
broken   the   bonds   of  friendship   with
our Great White,Molher and her sons.
She   has  never  broken   them   with  us.
The   heart  of  tho  Indian   has   become
bad.   During   tho   long  winter  he  has
dreamed evil dreams, and they would
blossom   into    evil   deeds   under    this

He sprang down froui the horse, and
waving aside tho now pacified Indians,
threaded his way to Captain Eviston.
' 'Go in peace," he said, in his soft
guttural English, hesitating over the
unfamiliar words. And then he added
rapidly in Indian to the orderly:
"Tell th'em to go quickly���now while
my Indians are under the spell of this
child whom they love. And tell them
that it was she who saved them. Tell
them that Pretty Feathers grieves for

"When   they   wera  all  safely   outside
and screaming, and raising his oyes and
hands to the sunlight, began a fierce,
^vild prayer.
��� The Indians, half crazy with ox-
cil ement, scarcely knew what was
happening. They looked irresolutely at
their chiefs and the medicine-men, uncertain what was expected of them or

"Recently, having had occasion to 'go
to England, a party of three left by
the Allen line, from Montreal. We
decided upon the Allen lino because it
has some of tho best ships that sail
from Canadian ports, and everything
possible is done for the convenience of
tho passengers of this line. We wont
on board tho Oalifornian, at about
half past eight on a Thursday morning, as it sailed promptly at nine. After having embarliod, we went up on
the promenade deck so as to watch the
crowds of people on tlie wharf. Horo
a large crowd had collected to see the
departure of the vessel, most of them
having friends who are leaving, and
they are saying their last good-byes,
while some are only looking on with
the general interest of seeing a large
ocean steamship start on its voyage.
Porters laden with hand baggage of
every description are running up the
gang-ways, officers are
SHOUTING OUT.COMMANDS,
and sailors are running about in every
direction. At last tho bell, warning
friends that they must go ashore, is
rung, and the whistle blown, then
the California'n slowly swings out into the stream and proceeds down the
���St. Lawrence towards Quebec, which
is the first stopping place.
After tire ship is well under way
breakfast is announced and every one
goes to partake of their first ocean
meal. The dining room, or saloon, is
situated exactly amidships, and occupies the entire width of the ship,
wh'cre there is the least possible motion. If has a seating capacity which
will comfortably accommodate all the
first-class passengers at ono time, thus
doing away with tho necessity of a
double service, which is so annoying
on so many ships. The dining saloon
is lighted from .a'bovo by a magnificent colored glass dome and from tho
sides by large port-holes, extending
along the entire length of the room.
Tho meals aro ordered from a lengthy
and choice menu, which includes' everything lhat one could possibly desire. The service is also most excellent; there being plenty of stewards in
every department of ihe ship to attend to the wants of the passengers.
If one feels hungry on waking in the
morning, it is only necessary to
TOUCH THE ELECTiUC DELL
at the head of hia berth, and any refreshment desired will be served before rising. Then, further on in the
morning, at about eleven o'clock, hot
beef tea and biscuits are served on
deck; then at one o'clock the grand
luncheon is served in the saloon ; and
at four refreshments are again served
on deck, and then at seven o'clock dinner is served in the saloon,-which is
the great sooial event of the day. So
we see that although the ocean does
create an almost uncontrollable appetite, it is well catered for, both in
quantity and quality.
After every one has done full justice
to the first dinner on board, we explore our state-room aind its immediate surroundings. Then we call the
bath-room steward (o find out if wo
are not yet too late to secure- the favorite hour for our salt-water bath in
the morning; then we discover which
is to be our cabin steward, and instruct h:m in regard to our peculiarities

important matters havo .been arranged below-, we go up on deck, and then

A GOOD VIEW OF THE CITY '
and fortifications and its magnificent
and historical surroundings. Tho renowned hotel, Chateau Frontenao, is
beautifully situated on the Dufferin
Terrace. At half-past six, after we
hive left Quebec, the first-bell for dinner rings, and every one goes bclowjto
prepare for the meal. Then, after
dinner is over, we again go on deck to
lounge in our steamer chairs, so us to
fully enjoy  (he  beautiful moonlight.
Tho next day tho river and surrounding scenery is entirely changed; (he
river has become almost a great lake,
lho banks are high aud barren, nearly
ull life seems to havo disappeared and
we only pass four or five small fishing
villages ihe entire day. After this
the river becomes larger and larger,
until aflast we can only, occasionally
see hind on tho soul horn side; and at
last on Monday morning wo pass
through the Straits of Hello Isle and
aro out upon the open sea, after being
almost five days on this mighty and
beautiful river.   .
_Now the captain' comes down from
his bridge and everyone has become
acquainted wilh each other and we
spend (he most enjoyable and yet lazy
timo imaginable. Some seem to"
spend (he entire time in their steamer
chairs, othors being more athletic
promenade up and down the decks and
play games such as
QUOITS, SAUFFLE-BOAUD, ETC.,
while others spend their time in the
library or music saloon.
After only four days in the open sea
a light-houso is discovered, on Friday evening, away off in. the distance, and everyone r is anxious to
see land first. Early on Saturday morning tho " Californian "
enters the large and beautiful bay of
Moville. We do noc remain here long,
bul after some of the passengers have
been landed, and tho papers and mail
have been taken on board wei proceed
through tho north' channel along tho,
north coast of Ireland, liveryone rises
early to enjoy (he beauties of the.
Irish' scenery, and really the different
formation of tho rock on the coast and
farther inland, tho beautiful farms
with their strange houses are well
worthy of the small inconvenience
caused by rising so early. Then we
pass through the Irish sea, passing so
close fo the Isle of Man that we are
able to see quite plainly some of th'a
towns,' which are situated, on that sido
of the Island. "We now pass into the
great harbor of Liverpool, which has
the largest shipping trade in the world.
The ship comes along side of the landing stage at about eight o'clock in the
evening, and we reluctantly say goodbye to the friends whom we have made
on board and

as an almost unrealizable shock. A
lifetime of susponso was contained in
that Instant of silence. Captain Eviston turned to the orderly:
"For God's sake, Doyle, talk to (hem.
Say something  to quiet these fiends."
Doyle shook his head hopelessly.
"They    wouldn't  listen   to  me,  sir,"
he said, "and, besides���"
His  words  were  drowned  in  a half-
smothered shriek of terror from Mrs.
Eviston.      Raising his head,  he  heard
the quick rush of a pony's hoofs,  and
saw a narrow lane opening up through
the  dense    mass  of    Indians,  and  far
down  it,  uncertainly,  miles  off  seemingly  to  his  bewildered eyes,  he  saw
a little bronco  bedecked with  painted
feathers and scarlet ribbons, whom he
had once, ages before, known as Nellie,
making her way into the lodge, and on
her beck Jack, in all the glory of her
Indian    paraphernalia, casting cordial

plurcd the steamship we find our deck

pleasant spot, aud enjoy the river

Tho ever changing variety and
beauty of this scenery is nowhere sur-
p.issitd. This tiver trip, combined wilh
tho ocean voyage, is one of the
features which combine to make tho
crossing by tho Allen line fronii Montreal so much superior to all others.
At /irst the surrounding country is
flat and low, with beautiful different
colored flowers, and farther back tho
ground gradually rises, and here and
there, almost hidden by the trees, a
quaint old French village may be seen.
Then, as we go on far then, towards
Quebec, thj land rises rather abruptly
from the river and we notice larger
(owns and cities situated directly on
the banks. We pass three rivers about
noon, and at list arrive at Quebec
about six o'clock in the evening. The

Captain Brown was very courteous
towards all tho passengers; he was
neither boastful of his' splendid seafaring career by monopolizing all the
conversation at tho table, nor was he
uncivil. H'o was unremitting in his attentions to the comfort and welfare of
the passengers. Everyone down to the
lowest seaman "followed the splendid

they might well be proud.

We returned by the " Parisian" commanded by Captain Barrett. As wc h':d
such a delightful outward voyage on
the " Californian" we thought we
could do no better than return by the
Bame. line. The " Parisian " happened
to be the boat which sailed on the
date which best suited us. We expected the sea voyage to seem very long
and tedious, as we desired to arrive
h'-ime as soon as possible, but it seemed  just like a few hours  of
COMFORT AND REST.
This was due to the excellent manner
in wh:ch the ship was commanded and
disciplined, and the comfortable way
in which the ship itself was planned. The ship was kept in perfect
condition, overything being as clean
as a new pin, the meals and service
being equal to (hat which may be
obtained at any of the best hotels. And
what more can a person desire than a
comfortable, strongly-built ship, commanded by an efficient commander,
with a well trained disciplined crew,
the best of meals, and the ship,crossing the Atlantic between' tho two
nearest points of land? Any person
desiring to visit the old country this
year, or, in fact, .any other year, let
him patronize the Canadian route by
the Allan Line from Montreal, and so
be  sure of a  profitable  voyage.

Suporior section of the C.P.R.    I    was
exposed to all kinds of weather, and as
ii result sustained a severe    attack ot

agony.   I spent more   than a hundred
dollars on doctors*    and   for medicine,
bul. was gradually getting worse and
fin illy   had    to   quit    work. At    thin '
juncture tho   doctor   told   me that he
did not think medicine could cure mo,
and advised nie,    to   go   to^soine   hot
springs.     I     took   his       advioo     and
went  to the    Ilarriston Hot    Springs,
in British  Columbia,   whore  I remained for eight weeks under "the care of
tho house physician,, , but   experienced
no  benefit.   I    then    went    over      to
Tacoma, and  took    a   course    at    the
Greon River Hot    Springs,    but    with
no better      result.      Completely     discouraged I   returned   to my homei   In
Quebeo, and went to farming,   but tho
jheumalii'm bothered me so much (hat
could scaroelj    do my    work.   , Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills were recommended, to me and I 'decided to 'give them a
trial.     After    taking,   a   few.boxes   I
found they were helping me and I con-
lined  their use until I'had  taken 'six-
teer  boxes,  by wh'.oh time  every vestige of the trouble which had bothered
me for years, and hud cost mo so much
money,    had    disappeared.   It  is now
moro   than  a year  and a half  since  I
discontinued   the use of tho  pills and
during  (hat  time I have not had the
slightest symptom of tho trouble, which
I regard as the very best evidence that
(he   cure   is   permanent.    "

In astronomy to viow the planet Jupiter. In June, Jupiter will bo noar

of the planet, while the other two are

THE GERMAN EMPEROR.

E'lantfiiK German Colonics.
The German Emperor, unless all
signs fail, will not be a disturber ������ of
European peace. He is his own mas-
tor and is not under the influence of
ambitious soldiers, many of whom
would gladly accept eveai a slight provocation as a reason for a war with
Russia, France or England. His self-
restraint is remarkable, armed as ha
is with tremendous resources of power. He is intent upon maintaining
German military prestige without
quarrelling with any foreign power or
striking a blow.
The empire was never so well prepared for war as it is now. .Both tho
cavalry and tho artillery havo beon
greatly strengthened since the campaign with France. Thoroughness is
the chief German virtue. Every practical detail has boon mastored by tha
general staff in its preparations for
scientific warfare.
These military measures are defensive, for Germany has nothing to gain
from any great campaign on the continent. The liiuperor has aimed to on-
large his colonial possessions, to
strengthen tho German navy and to
open now markets for the merchants of
Hamburg and Bremen.
Ills methods havo sometimes seemed'
meddlesome, but his motive has been
clear and re.isonaDic. J lie. Germans
havo shuwn themselves to be thrifty
and successful settlers in other foreign lands. The emperor has wished
them to do under their own flag what
they have done under foroign flags. IIo

In carrying out this general policy
he has acted like a.n energetic trader,

and the South Seas he has either been
obtaining concessions, or planting colonies, or watching for opportunities.
He. has been ready to pick up anything
in (he form of territory or of commercial advantage which has come in his
way.

It was a  Discuit tin, and in the, bottom of it  were some macaroons.  A cobra spied the tin, but a mouse  ���������was ahead ofv the cobra. The little  thief was having a good time, regaling itself on macaroons, till unconscious that a snake was preparing (o  regale itself om mouse.  Into the tin, went the head of    the  snake, but the head that wont in was  destined to come out loss easily.   The  rough   edges of  the  tin  irritated   the  cobra, and involuntarily it dilated its  hood.     That roado it a prisoner. With  the hood  dilated   the  head  could   not  be withdrawn, and the cobra remain-  Ed  In    its tin prison    uiit.il    morning,  whe" it was easily captured and killed.  Doctoi Stradling, who knows the natives of India as well as he. knows the  snakes  of    that land,    tells of an  interesting theory held by these people.  They    arc firmly    convinced that  for  every, human    being  a snako  bites  it  loses ono joint.     When the number of  deaths the snake has caused equals the  number  of    its  joints,   the , venomous  head   alone remains.      The snake  has  now reached the height of its wicked  desires,  and at  this point  it develops  wings  and  triumphaiuly disappears.  An exception to this rule is found  an tho other side of the world, in the  case of the rattlesnake,- for the natives of some parts of America are  said to believe that this snake gains a  thimble for every ma,n if kills. By  counting these thoy can calculate with  precision how many people a parti-  rattlesnake has  bitten.

"Nearly  all the larger mines in ,the  ; Slocan closed down 011 Wednesday last  in consequence of the eight-hour law  going into force on the 12th.   The Star  is working its usual force, but what it  will do after the 12th  is  not   known.  This  is unfortunate,   ns well  for the  general public interests us for those of  the two parties more nearly interested.  A newspaper may properly discuss the  merits or demerits of a law that  prevents one man  from selling  his labor  nnd .mother from buying that labor on  term's that best suit both parties,  but  it lias but little scope in the situation  es it. stands between the men and the  ciwners.   Both parties are to tin extent  handicapped  by law.   The miner has  nothing   to dispose of but. his  labor,  and no one can blame him for getting  the,most he can for it, in an  occupation   as hazzardnus   as mining;  and,  true to   nature,   the owner wants   to  make tho .mo8t   out of his  property.  The situation is simply a business deal  between two parties,  in which   public  interests are  injured  by  the drop 'in  operations.   Our information is that a  large  number   of the best  men have  left the camp for other fields and  that  others are following, which in itself is  a mutter of serious moment to all concerned. '  the law had to be eniorced. Catching  votes was ever and always Joe's ruling  motive. He wiped out the separate  schools of Manitoba because he  thought it would please the Protestants, and they "'held the balance of  power." It'is the balance of, power  Joe is always after. This is the principle of the petifogging politician, but-  it is never that of a statesman. A  statesman would have consulted tho  B. C. people before passing such an  act; and if, after consulting them, he  found it was it was in the interest of  the province, it should be passed, he  would have passed it and enforced it  from the start. He never would search  for balances of power.  Things will never  be right in  this  province  until- the country is given  full municipal institutions, with complete   local government.   In unorganized districts,  the people cannot have  a So bridge,  unless a   fow build it at  their own expense; iney cannot conduct  anything as it ought to be conducted,  unless a few, put. tlieir hands in their  pockets   to   meet   current,  expenses.  The same is true of schools in  organized districts and  even in cities, simply because our   municipal system is  incomplete.   Let the government give  the people the power  to collect their  own taxes, real and personal, and meet  their own local expenditures, and then  complaints will be reduced do a minimum.  Anothcr.strike of serious moment to  Canada has taken place during the last  few days.   This time it ia on the Grand  Trunk Railway���������all the trackmen have  struck for ?2.00 a day.   The G. T. 11.,  though  a yery important highway to  Canada, has never paid, and its prtsent  trouble will not help it any.   At one  time, when iu financial difficulties, the  Canadian government guaranteed its  bonds, and when the debt and interest  ran  up   to   ������11,000,000  the  Canadian  government had to oay ic all.   For the  greater   part of its length.'it is subjected to water competition on the St.  Lawrence  and 'he lakes,   so Its rates  have never, been high and its expenses  were heavy on a double track line.   As  we mentioned last   week,  in referring  to strikes,  the strikers and their sympathizers are to a certain  extent responsible for' this trouble also.   The.  entire community,  strikers included,  are looking for cheap railway   fares,  cheap goods,,which  on imports  of all  kinds implies   cheap freights, and to  produce them, manufacturers as well as  dealers must keep down expenses, including wages.   When the entire community, strikers included,  consent to  pay reasonable prices for goods, which  included freights, railways can afford  to pay higher wages to them, as well  as   producers! of all   kinds   including  dealers.     Much of tbe   cause of  the  grinding down of salaries is-owihg to  railways, producers   and ; dealers -en^  detiYoring to   meet' the   demand   for  cheap travel, transportation and merchandise.    ���������''.'.'." -"'  At,length a crisis is being reached  in the B. C. cabinet. ��������� Indeed lew  expected it could have been so long  delayed. Martin, he who conducted  Ludgtue's case against the province  as long as there was a dollar in it, and  left him when he could bleed him no  more, wants to rule, and, of course, he  cannot do it while Cotton is there. To  be pointed, there is not room "in the  small pond for two such lish, and Joe  will have to get out.  COMMUNICATION.  To the Editor ol" the Aiming Review :  Dear Sih,���������I noticed in last week'*  Paystreak a statement that the council had reversed its motion of granting  certain parties privilege to place a  waterwheei iu the flume. If the editor  of the PaysLreak can shoiv me whete  the council ever passed a resolution  granting Eoliiet & McMillan liberty to  tamper , with the flume I would be  obliged to him; If he followed the records of the council meetings he would  be better posted. The writer of this is  not very fond of rushing into print, but  he don't want to be placed in a ridiculous light , before the ratepayers of  the citj.  .Yours very respectfully,   -  -      * -,   JOHN BUCKLEY,  A member of the couneil.  Sandon, June 1st,'99.  iRisiimii  Of Seats in . me Dominion  of Commons.'  ���������  House  Bro. Houston, of the Nelson Tribune, is great oh comparisons-. He asserts that The Be view and .The Kootenaian are alike, and in the same  breath sets theonedown as Grit and  the other Tory. The public would like  to know whereu} Grit and Tory are  alike. We could let this all quietly,  pass but for the assertion (by inuendo)  that the editor of this paper was an  office seeker in Manitoba. If the  Tribune will prove that the Editor  of this paper ever sought an office  in any shape or form from any  ogvernriient under the sun, we will  present him with the best hat in  Nelson. If, again, that print can show  that this paper erer said anything of  "Joe" Martin or'Ered" Hume that the  facts do not warrant, wc will make its  editor a present of the leather medal  he will earn by .his diligence. While,  again, the'Nelson print is at its"hatrcd  of party," it might explain its continual knifing of the present city council  of Nelson. Is it because its-mayor  licked the editor of the Tribune in the  last municipal contest ?  We publish in other columns what  is given as the respective opinions ofthe B.C. Government oh the eight-  hour law. By this it will be soon that  the desire of the Hon. Joseph Martin  was not to best serve the country, but  to catch votes. He said the manors  held the balance of power,  and that I  The following is the full text of the  Bill introduced in the House of'Commons so far as it relates to the boundaries of constituencies : -:y  (2) The electoral districts of Both-  well, Oardwell and West Ontario are  hereby abolished! :  (3) The electoral districts of the  counties ��������� of Kent, Lambton, Huron,  Bruce, Grey, Wellington, Perth,' Elgin,  Middlesex, Oxford, Norfolk, Wetland,  Brant, Haldiniand, Lincoln, Dulferin,  Simcoe, Wentworth, Peel, York and  Ontario, the districts of Muskoka aiid  When the children are  hungry, what do you give  them?

The Panic in Stocks it Caused  and the  Experience With Other Inventions.  Mr. Marconi's brilliant success in  telegraphing across the English channel without wires," says the London  Engineering, was, of course, taken advantage of by operators on the stock  ���������.exchange to depress prices aid to endeavor to create a panic among holders of submarine cable shares. Fort-  unatelj' the plan fell flat, for, although  there was a sharp depression, it soon  fell away.  Most of us can remember the panic  ���������which occurred among shareholders in  gas undertakings when, &oou after the  electric light was introduced, it 'as  announced that Edison had invented a  lamp suitable for indoor illumination.  Holders threw their script on the market and prices fell enormously. Those  who were capable of forming a correct  judgement, and had the courage of  opinions, reaped a rich harvest.  It was in 187S���������more than 20 years  ago���������that the world was startled by  the brilliant Jablochkoff lighting of  the avenue do l'Opera in Paris, and  jumped to the conclusion that a new  eraof illumination had arrived. Yet  today what an insignificant part does  electricity in the lighting of this country ! , At the end of 1898 the capital  employed in electric lighting was  about fourteen millions sterling, while  the capital employed in gas manufacture and distribution was seventy-six  millions, and fourteen and a half millions were spent annually upon making gas. It is not' that electricity has  rendered ������14,000,000 worth of, gas  works idle, but that it lias succeeded  in obtaining a small share of the 20  years' growth of demand.  It was in 1S76, if we remember rightly, that the first telephone was brought  to this country, and a year or two later  the microphone transmitter was invented, the two being then practically  perfect. The government, as owners  of the telegraph system, took fright  and endeavored to safeguard themselves by laj ing a tax uf 10 per cent,  on the receipts of the telephone company. Y"et during the 20 years,the  telegraph business has increased by  bounds, while the telephone service is  still a long way from even reasonable  efficiency.  Mr- Marconi etected his apparatus  on the South Foreland, and showed in  a day that the problem of communicating with light ships had been completely solved. The daily papers  reported the proceedings, and the  writers, giving the rein to tliGir imaginations, saw messages Hying through  the ether over all the oceans in the  world. Next came the fall in shares,  which threatened for a moment to develop into a disastrous panic. Fortunately sounder counsels prevailed, and  holders lemembered that an industry  whieh employs 30,000,000 of capital is  .not to be overturned in a day.    ������   ������   Mi  Ymir and District.  Didn't Walk for 5 Months.  Doctors said Locomotor Ataxia.  Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills  Cure a Disease hitherto regarded  as Incurable.  The case of Mr. G. O. Archibald, of  Hopewell Cape, N.B., (a cut of whom  appears below), is one of the severest  and most intractable that has ever been  reported from the eastern provinces, and  his cure by Milburn's Heart and Nerve  Pills (he more remarkable from the fact  that ho was given up as incurable by  worthy ancl respected physicians.  The disease, Locomotor Ataxia, with  which Mr., Archibald was afflicted is  considered the most obstinate and incurable disease of the nervous system  known. When once it starts it gradually  but surely progresses, paralyzing- the  lower extremities and rendering its victim helpless and hopeless, enduring- the  indesci ibablu agony of seeing1 himself ciic  by inches.  That Milhtu-ii's Heart' and Nerve pills  can cure thoroughly and completely a  disease of such seventy ought to ericour-  ayo those whose disorders are not so  sgrious to try this remedy.  The following'is Mr. Archibald's letter:  Messrs. T. Milburn & Co.���������"I can  assure you lhat my case was a very severe  one, and had it not been for the use of  Milburn's Heart and Norvo Pills 1 do not  believe I would be alive In-day. 1 do  not know, exactly, what was tho cms.:  of the disease, but it gradually afl'eeii-il  my legs, until I was unable to walk  hardly any for five months.  " I was under the Cyiru of Dr. Morsi ,  of Melrose, who said I had Locomolor  Ataxia, and gave me up as incurable.  " Dr. Solomon, a well-known physician  of Boston, told me that nothlnjr could bo  done for ine. Every one who came to  visit me thought I never could get better.  "I saw Milburn's Heart and Nerve  Pills advertised and .thought I would try  them anyway, as they gave more promise ofhelpinyme than anything-1 knew of.  "If you had seen nie when I blurted  taking those wonderful pills���������noi able to  get out of my room, and saw me now,  working- hard every day, you wouldn't  know me.  " I am agent for P. 'O. Vickcy. c "  Augusta Maine, and have sold 300 mi'-  scribers in So days and won a liny doiia/  prize.  " Nothing-else in the world saved me  but those pills, and I do not think they  have an equal anywhere.  " The seven boxes 1 took have restored  me the full use of my legs an 1 given me  strength and cncrjry ar-! better health  than I have enjoyed in a !ji;j" time."  G. O. Archibald.  Hopewell Cape, N. B.  In addition to the statement by Mr.  Archibald, we have tho endorsation of  two well-known merchants of Hopewell  Cape, N. B., viz.: Messrs. J. E. Dickson  and F. J.

At the so-  called " Schleppe Cour" or " train  court," which corresponds to a presentation ,in England, the costumes are  not brilliant. The most necessary thing  is a train of satin of a certain length.

A few years ago some of the best  writers on the Russian Empire, including Prince Ivrapolkin, believed  lhat tho wheat producing capabilities  of Siberia has been much overrated,  and that the country would never be  able to produce much1 more of the cereal than it needs for its own-consumption. But as the Siberian railroad has  pushed through new regions, and thousands of Russian families have followed  its advance and made new homes, it  begins to look, as though the writers  wh/> held pessimistio views concerning  Siberian  agriculture were mistaken.  In the Altai mining district, last year  oyer 300,000 tons of surplus wheat were  produced, and only 5 per cent, of the  available agricultural lands have yet  been brought into cultivation. In the  fertile steppe country opened up by  lhe western section of the railroad,  0-4,500 tons of wheat were raised for export where until, recently it was necessary to import wheat every year  for local consumption.     .  :  they had met in. St. Petersburg and  two strange men.' After the train left  Moscow, the officer told Mme. Sembrieh  that he had recognized, the. two men  as notorious! thieves who had lately  beer, released from prison and were  doubtless on the train for the purpose  of getting at her jewels, which were  famous in Russia. He promised to keep  guard from the outside. Mme, Sembrieh  and her husband locked the door and  alternated in sitting on the jewel casket until Warsaw was reached in the  early morning, hours. Then a policeman  was brought to the car, and-under his  supervision, the singer and. her jewels were safely carried to the hotel.  Many of them were given to the singer by admirers in Russia.���������some of  whom were not even, known to her by  name. The most valuable part of the  collection is a superb set of sapphires.  Few .persons have sufficient -wisdom  to prefer censure, which is useful, to  praise which deceives them.���������Rochefou-  r-nnld.  Few persons who have seen the German Empress would believe that she  spends money extravagantly on her  dresses, yet she is said to keep twelve  women constantly employed on her  wardrobe, under the supervision of a  maid of honor. When she is about to  take a journey requiring especial ceremony this number is increased to forty,  and for every wedding she attends the  Empress is. said-to order fifteen new  dresses. In addition to the dresses  made in her private establishment,,  there are court gowns brought from  Vienna to be worn on state occasions.  These are so long that the trains have  to be carried to enable the Empress to  walk, and are frequently studded with  jewels. The value of one dress, including the jewels applied to the train, is  said to have been' $20,000. The rule at  the German court makes it impossible  for the Empress to appear twice at the  3tat.e functions-in the same, costume,  and much of the work done by the  twelve dressmakers is in making alterations so that the 'rule may not  be broken andj the dresses have a different   look though they are   rp.allv the  Tlie Wonder-, of (he ftrrjit Itrscrvol  Mnrfcd nl Assiinti.  Since the building of the pyramids  Egypt has seen fe'w, such gigantic undertakings as the construction of the  great reservoir dam at Assuan, the  foundation stone of which was laid a  few days ago by the Duke of Con-  naught, says the London Mail.  This dam will bo a mile and/ a quarter in length ; .the height of the cop-  Lugstone, will, be 300 feet above lhe  bed of the lower river, and for 140 miles  Father Nile will feel the .influence of  this great impounding of waters.  English engineers and English surveyors have planned this great enterprise, English money is at the back  of it, and English bondholders will,  next pcihjaps to the: cultivators of the  soil on the Nile banks, derivelhe greatest  benefit. .     " "        ���������  Five thousand dusky natives are already at work; one order for 3,000,-  C00 barrels of European cement- has  been or is about to be delivered; thousands of tons of granite ashlar are being quarried from the Assuan side of  the river. Never ha>s the ancient river  on wh.^se bosom Moses was cradled  seen such industry. John Bull has  very much arrived.  ''The dam will bo built of material  token from the quarries at Assuan,  whence came the graoiite- used for the  construction of the Thames embankment.  On its completion the reservoir will  hold 250,000,00J.OOO gallons of water, and  across this huge artificial lake a bridge  will stretch, and camel trains anu  pedestrains will pass over, and all will  be life and buptlo and hurry. Never  had the descendants of Pharaoh such  a shaking up.  And what is thet object of it all f  "Egypt is the Nile, and iho Nile is  Egypt." Iu that ancient saying the  whole business may be summed up. The :  dam will buttle up the rich Nile waters ; , f  MILLIONS OF ACRES OF LAND  will be irrigated; 2,500. square miles  will be reoiaimeu irom me deserts;  in short, tne dam will increase the  country's productive capacity by ������>percent. Egypt's omput of raw sugar  will in a year or two be-'doubled perhaps-trebled.  Here is a chance for the " depressed " British farmer! Let him go to  Egypt. 'The soil there,' when it can  gvjt Nile -.water, is more kind ihan.that  at home, Cotton and suglix command,  high prices, and-one acre will produce irom four to five hundredweight  of long-staple cotton. When the great  dairi is completed vast tracts of land  will be capable of producing two, if  not   three,  crops in  the  year.  T'hto work will be completed in a little over five years from now. -This is  tht1 first time a river approaching the  size of the Nile has had adam built  in it. Another novel thing about this  altogether novel' undertaking is that it  will   be  both; a dam and  a waterway.  Now, as to the cost." When one considers the stupendous character ofthe  scheme; the many difficulties that will  have to be overcome, and the incalculable benefits that will accrue, the price  does not appear exorbitant; The contractors are to receive, in round figures, ������160,000 a year for thirty years,  making in all about ������4,800,000.  The period over which this payment  is to extend must carry< conviction to  the minds of other nations who have  set longing eyes on the valley of the  Nile that Great Britain means to hold  onto it, for some .time,  at any rate.  A curious obstacle was at (he- outset  placed in the way of realizing the  scheme. The original plans for the  construction of (he dam would have  involved the disappearance of the famous ruins of Philae. ,  Miles of petitions were drawn up  and submitted.to the authorities, and  scores of alternative plans suggested  some of them worthy the imaginative  minds that had conceived them. One  was to remove Philae, stone'by stone,  to Cairo, t'h'us bringing it still easier  within the reach of tourists.  , Finally the engineers modified their  plans, and-the''dam will be one-third  lower than was at first proposed. Still,  when the reservoir is finished, Philao  will - never be itself again ; for the  waters will wash' the' feet of the temple? that for ages have stood like.sentinels guarding the boundary of' Nubia  and Egypt.  This is unfortunate, but the most  enthusiastic of Egyptologists will confess that the sacrifice is not in vain,  DREAMS,  To dream of angels means joy; ants  denote good trade; apples denote a-  wedding���������sours ones denoting bad  luck, sweet ones prosperity and good'  luck. ,  To dream of a donkey fieasofces. tiad  luck, aad it is said to ride one is scorn-  to hold ono is much toil; and to dream  you aro beating one, you'll mourn.  To dream of a cloudy morning showe  ill luck and grief; but fo r^e a bright  sunny morn in your dream wi.U bring  you good news.  To dream you hear dogs barking and  howling is a bad sign.  To di'eam you hear bells is'a sign  of enmity, or if you hear the wind  blowing it denotes batrod and quarl-  ling.  To dream of birds' nests or eggs  shows good luck will come to you ; but  if you dream you are eating eggs, then  sorrow is in store for you.  Clear water seen in a dream denotes  good news, just as dirty water denotes  ill luck to the dreamter.  If you dream you are crossing a  bridge, an elevation in lifo is in store  for you; or if the bridge be broken,  difficulty and strife lie before you.  Cats denote bad luck, except it bo  a black ono that you dream of, than  this   is  lucky.  To dream of cattle denotes riches to  come, whilo to dream of a sweep shows  good  luck will  you  attend.  Clocks aro good to dream about, but  if they strike then bad luck is the result.  To dream of fowls is good news; and  if thoy crow, belter luck still.  Old clothes denote a fire.  To dream of a corpse denotes fortune  to you.  To dream of horses, horse shoes,  horsemen and such things, means  riches and good luck.  To dream you are drinking wine, denotes news, or if you .dream' you are in,  a wine cellar,  it denotes an illness.  Tears denote you'll be-lucky in your  situation; teeth falling out is a good  sign;  but to break them off, ill luck.  Rats and ravens denote ill will,  death, and disgrace.  To lose a ring indicates sickness.  To dreams of lambs indicate pleasure, riches, etc.  To be writing shows misery, as also  is it denoted by dreaming of worry.   ���������  Dead horses indicate much adversity.-  Goats, flowers, or flying in the ail  are good omens to all.  Clean clothes denote prosperity, unclean  linen, sickness  and   trouble.  ELSIE'S GARDENING.  Little Elsie felt herself quito a gardener as she quietly walked across th(  lawn with her new rake and watering can.  "My garden will always look nio.  now, for I can rake it smooth with raj  new rake, and I shall water it evcrj  evening and then the seeds will all  come up and tho flowers will lool  fresh."  Elsie held up her head and looked  quite proud.  She had not gone far before she mot  her brother Dick.  "Ah 1" said he, "you are going tt  your garden. Have you any seed to  set ?"  "No," said Elsie; "it is not the right  time."  "Doll seed may bo set at any time,''  said Dick, taking two large beans out ���������  of his pocket."DOn't   set them verj    ���������  deep  in  the  ground,  and  come every  morning to see if they have come up."  Dick was very fond of playing tricks  on his sister though his mother. told. ;  him it was wrong to do so, and he  laughed as he saw Elsie going off with  her beans,: which she set noax some  flowerpots.'-  One morning Dick went off  to tha  garden with a small paper parcel tucked under his coat, and hid himself be- V  hind some bushes.   ,-���������  Presently Elsie   came    along,    and   ,  when    she looked    at her garden she  spread out her hands and said:  "Qhl"   :'>:..'  Close by the flower pots, lay a little  wax doll. Elsie ran to the house, calling out:; ���������'���������"-. ' '.  "Mother, mother I my doll seed has  come up. It has grown into a real  doll.     Come and look."  But when hor mother came and saw  Dick looking through the bushes, she  said:."Oh I Dick, Dick! you have been  playing your sister another trick."'

BY ROBERT BARE.  \ This is!a story of war's alarms, and  -j the agony that comes  through man's  f Inhumanity to   man.     It is   generally  ] supposed    that  it , is   upon   the    com-  / mou soldier that  the brunt of  battle  1 falla; but very often highly-placed of-  { fice-rs'   aro    called upon  to suffer  for  j their country, and it is  tho pathetic  i tale of one of  these  war  dogs  that I  ( now sec ni3'self lo relate, hoping that  / his  heroism, may   thus   retain  a place  ( in lhe annals of the land.     If Madame  ' ( History, after lisloniug to my tale, of  | woe,  reserves    amodest niche in  the  | temple of fame for Captain Angus Mc-  ( Korricher, 1 shall bo more than satis  fied.  ,We, in Western Canada, wore always  a bloodthirsty gang, and our military  system has. since been plagiarised by  Germany and Franco. Service in the  ranks was compulsory, and one whole  day, in the year was devoted to drill,  the consumption of stimulants, and  the making of effete Europe tremble.  : iThis memorable annual festival;, was  tlie 21th of May, the birthday of the  <2ueen. Unless a day in the middle of  harvest 'had been chosen, no more inopportune . time could have been selected than the 21th of May, so far as  the farmez-s _ were concerned. The  leaves were just out on tho trees, the  roads were becoming passable again  through tho drying of the mud, and  spring work was at ils height. It-was,  therefore, extremely inconvenient for  farmers to turn Iheir ploughshares into muzzle-loaders, and go from three  to thirteen miles to the village and  rerel in gore, yet tho law mado attendance compulsory.  For years the rigour of military discipline had boea mitigated by a well-  known device. Some neighbour, at the  reading of the roll, would shout  "Here," when an absentee's name was  called, and so the reports lhat went  'in   lo  the Government always showed  Put  t  B  the most marvellously constant attendance on duty that has ever gone  on record. No wonder the Queen sat  securely on her throne, and was unafraid.  Uhus the Empire ran serenely on until Angus McKerricher was made captain' of the militia., I don't know why  he was appointed,  but i think it  was  because he was the only man  in    the  district who'owned a sword, which had  descended to hixn  from  his  Highland  ancestry,    doubtless    escaping    confiscation  by  the English  soldiery,     aud  was  thus    xireserved    to  become    the  chief support  to   the  British   throne���������  certainly    a change from  its  use     in  younger days.   I was a small boy when  Angus first took command, but 1 well  romember the dismay his action spread  oyer  the district.      Angus -knew.personally     every    nvxsx   in   the    county,  which,   lo  paiody   Gilbert,   was  A tact  they ha-Jn't counted  upon,  When they first  put his  uniform  on.  The captain's uniform consisted of his  ordinary clothes, rendered warlike by  a scarlet sash,  looped over  the    left  ,  shoulder,    and. tied in    a sanguinary  ���������knot under the right arm, or "oxter,"  as Angus  termed  that portion  of  his  body.-   'But  what  added perturbation  to the feelings of the crowd assembled  on  the    parade-ground    was  the  long  claymore, held perpendicularly up the  , rigid right arm, the hilt almost down  to     the    knee,     the  point    extending  above the head, as Angus stood erect,  ^   with heels    together    and  chin    held  hijrh.      Even  the  dullest  of  us  could  perceive   that   the slovenliness of   our  tormer    captains,    iu    happy-go-lucky  styie of deportment, was a thing of the  past.     We wero now faoe to face with  tho real terrors of war, in ,tho person  of Captain  Angus  McKerricher.  ��������� '���������.- The stout yeomanry wore ail drawn  up in line, and beside the, statue-like  figure of the captain stood  tho  town  clerk, or    whatever the    official    was  , who kept the roll of able-bodied citizens, between the ages of eighteen and  forty-five,    who    were'liable  to  military service.   Tho day began with tho  calling of the names.  'Peter  McAlpiao 1"  "Here."  "John Finlaysonl"  "Hero."  "Dugald McMillan I"  "Hero."  "Sandy McCallum I"  "Here."  "Baldy McVannol 1"  "Present."  .   -At   this juncture  tho suddenly    uplifted sword of the captain stopped the  reading of the roll.  "Baldy McVanuei, step forward from  the ranks I",, was. the sharp command  -of the armed officer. There was ai  moment's apprehensive silenco, but no  one stepped from the ranks, which was  not to be wondered at, for Baldy was  at that moment peacefully ploughing  his field seven good miles away, and  "present" had. been answered by his',  friend and relative, McCallum, who  had, varied the word from his own  answer, "Here,"- the better to escape  notice, a plan which had always been  successful before. Deep was the  scowl on  the captain's face.  "Put him down fur a fine," he said  to the clerk.  "He's over the aadge," cried McCallum, who felt that he had to stand  by his abseat friend.  "He's neither over not under the  aage, Sandy," said the captain with  decision; "he's between thirty and  foffty��������� u.nd he should have been  here  thia day, as ho very well knows,  him down-lor a fine���������a dollar^"  An ignored law suddenly enforced  carries consternation into a 'community. The infliction of these fines  madei a greater financial panic in our  district than the failure of the Upper  Canada Bank; More than two^thirds  of the effective warriors of the township proved to be absent, and the  commercial agitation caused by this ton-  expected clapping on 'of fines penetrated to the furthest bounds of the  municipality. A dollar was, indeed, a  dollar in thosa days, and not to be  lightly parted wilh. However, such  was the law, and there was no help for  it; but the inflicling of the penalty  did nothing .towards increasing tho  popularity of tbo captain, although it  did increase the attendance on parade  for many a year after.  Vengeancecami: swiftly. It had beon  anticipated    that  it  would   tako    the  form of a fight botween McKerricher  and ono of the indignant friends Of an  absentee as soon .as 'parade was over,'  and the friend had taken on board sufficient   whisky  to  mako  him  quarrelsome, which was not as large a quantity as some of our temperance friends  might    imagine.     Thero    was    Celtic;  blood in  the    locality,    and it  flowed  freely  from punched    noses    on    less  momentous occasions than the day of.  Lhe grand muster.   After  the  dismissal of the troops, tho captain kept his  good sword in  his  hand,  and   it  was  still  too early in the afternoon for any  to have courage enough: to attack him  with bare fists.      That was  expected  later,  for it  takes  time  to  reach  the  proper pilch,   even with potent-Canadian   malt;     However, revenge presented itself to the captain in strictly  legal  guise.     A  villager,    learned in  the  law,  engineered the matter,  and  the constable arrested McKerricher-: on  the charge of carrying a knife with a  blade longer than the statutes allowed.  About    that time there   ,had   become  prevalent      a villainous-looking    dirk,  with    a long,    sharply-pointed    blade,  which shut up like an ordinary jack-  knife,  but which  had,  at  the  back of  the  handle,   , a catch,  which  held  the  blade rigid,  once  opened.      This  weapon had, in more than one row, which,  in  ordinary circumstances,   liave  been  innocent    enough,    proved  disastrous,  and a law had been passed to suppress  it.    No man was allowed to carry, concealed or in sight,  any  knife  with  a  blade more than six inches long,  and  there must be no device lhat held the  blade rigid.   It was  alleged that  Mc-  Kerricher's sword violaLed this ordinance, and that hohadparaded the town  with  this  illegal  instrument  in   plain  sight, to the terror and dismay of her  Majesty's    faithful    subjects,   be    the  same more or   less, in   the case made  and provided, etc.���������in fact; I,do not remember the exact legal phraseology of  the indictment, but, anyhow,>it was in  words to that effect.-: In vain the captain pleaded that the sword was a necessary implement of his new trade as  militia officer, and that the peace and  comfort of tho realm had not been visibly interfered with through his carrying of it; but it was easily proven that  I he had retained his sword while not on  ��������� duty, and that said instrument was a  knife within the meaning of the  Act,  its blado being more than  six  inches  in length, firmly affixed to the handle  aforesaid.     The magistrate fined him  five  dollars,    and  administered  a solemn warning from the bench.  "Cot pleas her," exclaimed an indignant Northerner, when the verdict  was made known ; "if she waants la  lak, let her have awl ta lab I"  In, other words, if the law against  absentees was to be enforced; let us  also set the law regarding jack-knives  in motion.  But  it    was the   Fenian scare  that  brought  out  the1 .superb - Napoleonio  qualities of Captain    McKerricher,  as  great crises always develop the latent  genius of notable men.     "To arms 1"  was the cry, and everything that would  9hoot,  except  the   blacksmith's anvil,  with' which wo used to celebrate  the  Queen's birthday, was brought into requisition.      Shotguns,,,   muskets    and  rifles were brought down from    their  wooden pegs along the hewn walls of  the log houses.-  We youngsters Were  set  at moulding bullets,  and  it   was  great fun.     Every house possessed bullet moulds, iron arrangements, like a  pair  of  pincers,  with  metal  cups    at  the business end, where a small  hole  at the junction of (he closed cups enabled you to pour in the melted lead,  There    was also    a couple    of    sharp  blades,   forming  part  of  the   handles,  which, working on the principle of nutcrackers,  enabled you  to clip off  the  lead  protuberance,    and    leave a perfectly moulded  bullet,, .which    would  kill  a man as effectively as if  it had  been cast.by the Government. Mounted men had rushed   galloping up    tbe  main  roads  from   the  lake  aiid  along  the concession  lines, shouting as they  passed,    "Tho    Foniians  are  coming I"  pausing for ho comment, but hurrying  forward with the news.    It needed no  other warning to cause every man who  could shoulder a gun to make his way  as quickly as passible  with  whatever  weapon he had to lhe village which he  knew    would be   the  rendezvous.      Tt  sovms sunny to look back on this commotion, for there was no more chanco  of the Fenians coining to our part of  the country    than    there was  ot  the  Russians;    nevertheless,  we  did    not  stop  to think about (.hat until   later,  and if invaders  had1 come,  I-iim willing  to  risk an  even  dollar   that  (hey  would    have wished    themselves  safe  once more.in Buffalo saloons, in spite  of tho justly celebrated reputation of  our    own  brands  of  liquor,   for   they  would have come into a peaceful community  that would rather fight than  eat.   Few of us knew anything about  the merits of the Irish question of that  day; out, attention being absorbed  in  politics that pertained to the talisman-  io    names    of "John A.,"  or    George  Brown.      Still, if invasion  came,    we  were all willing to fight first and inquire into the case afterwards.  The northern shore of Lako Erie���������at  least, that part with which I, am acquainted���������is a coast perfect as a' defence. High perpendicular clay walls,  quite    unscalable;      form    a    barrier  encounter.   It must not   be   supposed  tliat I am accusing tho Fenians of having been, men of sense, for, I have no  suoh intention ; but  even    they would  hesitate lo attempt the clay walls of  Western Canada.     However, the eagle  eye of the commander at once viewed  the weak point in 'our defence with an  unerring instinct worthy of Von M'ol-  tke.:    This was the pier.   A creek flowed into  the , lake, and a road  to     the  shore    ran    along  tho    banks of   this  creek.     At the terminus of the road  had been built a pier, some hundreds  of feet in length, jutting out into the  lake.'1   Here, in lieaceful times, schooners from Cleveland, Erie,  or Buffalo,  'had    loaded    themselves'    with  oaken  staves or prime wheat.     Captain AIc-  Kerricher saw that once the pier was  caplurod the Empire fell.     He therefore massed his,force on either bank of  tlie ravine, so: Lhat a withering crossfire would discommode  tho  enemy as  he, came,up the valley���������not a bad formation either.       Thus  the embattled  farmers stood prepared to fire a shot  which, if not heard round  tho world,  would at least echo to the village two  miles   away.     As    evening drew, on,  preparations  were made  for  camping  out., all  night  on  these  heights,   and  guards  were set  an   the  pier,   Finley  McGillis  at  the* post  of  danger,     the  end nearest to the Fenians;   while McCallum and McVahnel held down  tho  shore'end, all three prepared to wade  in blood should any miscreant attempt  to kidnap the pier, except the limited  liability ��������� company:   which    rightfully  Owned it:     Sentries wero placed round  the camp inland, and outposts farther  off.- 'Never was .-there more firm discipline exacted from any'body of soldiers; .The rigour: "of the British army  wasnotkihg as compared with the martinet character of  the  regulations  of  this, camp:      Captain  McKerricher   in  person       visited every sentinel,    and  informed.'him that this was no 24th of  May parade, but  real war,  and  that  any sentinel  caught  asleep  would,  be  forthwith  shot instead of being fined  a dollar ;'-'and,'that if a man lit his pipe  he would spend the rest of his life in  Kingston Penitentiary.  But the invincibility of a' camp is unknown until it is tested. Tho captain resolved to put; the firmness of  his sentinels to...the proof. He took  no one into his confidence; and here  again his likeness to Napoleon is evidenced���������he never let any of his subordinate officers' know 'what the- next  .'move,:, on-the board was to bo. There  was'a small skiff in the creek, and the  evening darkening early because of a  coming storm, the captain pushed put  the boat unobserved, .and rowed some  distance to the west,- then turned south  and: out into the lake, finally coming  north again toward the. end of the pier.  The night was black, relieved by an  occasional glimmer ot lightning on the  surface of the lake, and the wind was  rising. McKerricher's quest was getting to bo an unpleasant one, for ho  was essentially a landsman, and. tbe  increasing rnotion of the boat was disagreeable; but what, will a man not  do and dare for his country's sake? It  is probable that he discried the form  of Finley McGillis against the dark sky  before the sentinel caught any indication ,of tho boat on the murky water.  Finley said afterwards lhat he was just  wondering-' whether he dare risk a  smoke in his isolated position, and  trust to putting his, pipe out if he  heard a step coming up the pier, when  he was startled by a voice from the  lake���������   :,���������;'������������������'"���������  ' "Surrender I Drop your gun, and  save your life. Surrender, in the  name  of   the  Fenian  Brotherhood I"  McGillis made ho reply, and the captain began to think ha had caught his  chief sentry asleep; but as the wobbling boat became dimly visible lo  the man on the end of the pier, Finley  said slowly��������� ,.  , "I can see ye now! If yo move hand  or f.ut I'll blow ye out of the water I"  "That's all right," said the captain  hastily; "I'm glad to nolo that you  are on the alert. I'm Captain McKerricher."  "A likely story I" replied McGillis  contemptuously. "The keptin's no' a  rnahn to risk himself in a bit shallop  like that, an', a storm comin' up. Yer  ma preesoner, an' ye'll be a dead mahu  in another ineenit if ye pit hand 10  oar." '  "You fool!" cried the angered voyager. "How could I know about Mc-  trricher if I were a Fenian?". !  Oh, it's easy enough to hear abool  Kerricher, and it's vei'ra weel ken't  in the Auld Country and in (he States  that he is dor keptin'. ,.' Yer a wolf in  sheep's clothing, that's whut. ye are,  and jist listen ta me. There's a ball  nearly 'an' inch thick in this musket,  an' that'll '-be. through ye-bofore ye  can say.'click,' if ye don't do whut 1  tell ye. Then in this shot-gun at ma  feet there's a load of slugs, that nil  rive yer boat ta bits if yo attempt ta  niak' aff. Is, there a rope in that  boat?"  "Yes."  "Then throw it ta me, if it's king  j enough." ���������  This was done, and Finley lied (he  end of.it to one of ihe upright piles.  "Hand you up they oars. That's  right. Now yer ta lho. windward o'  the pier, an' nice an' comfortable fur  the nicht."       ,  "You are surely not going to keep  me here all night, and tho rain coming ?",      '  "Tho rain's no' was warse'fur you  than fur mo. A buddy munna be ower  tf.irteecular in lime of, war. If ut  should be that yer the keptin', I'll  niak' ma apologies in the mornin1; if  yer the Fenian ye said yo were, then  Aang'as '11 hang ye fur yer impidence  in   takin' his  name." '''���������'���������  "Fire ono guu in the air, and call  the officers. You have two, so there's  no risk. Disobey your captain at  your peril, and I'll have you court-  martialled in the morning."  "I'll fire nff naething ava'i I'm not  gaun fa waste a shot, an' poothcr sa  dear. If I fire, it will be at you; and,  besides, if I did fire, the whole camp  would be shootin' at once from a' the  heights in .this direction, an' while I'm  compelled/to risk being shot by th'e  Fenians, it's no' iu the bargain IhatJl  aa' a bullit -fra the north kills as  readily as yin fra the sooth."  The wind rose, the boat, rocked, and  the rain came on.   .  "Give ine the oars, at least,'.' implored the captive; "that rope will break  and  then I'll be adrift and helpless."  "Tho win's doon tho lake, so, if it  breaks, ye'll jist come ashore aboot  Long Point.''  But the rope did not break, and very  soon the captain was past tho point  where conversation is a pleasure ; for  however bravo he might be on land, he  had never beon intended for the navy.  "Yer no' used ta a boat," commented the sentinel, who had been a fisherman in the Highlands. "It's unco  hard at the time, they tell me; but  ye'll be a the' better-fur it in tho  mornin';"  When day broke Finley "McGillis expressed the utmost consternation and  surprise to find that his prisoner was  really his captain.  "Man I Who wud ha' beloe'ved that!"  he cried in  amazement.  The subordinate officers, who helped theiri haggard captain out of the  boat, advised him strongly to say nothing about the incident. This, so far  as .1 know was- tho only.- naval encounter that occurred at-the time of  the Fenian raid, and it goes to show,  as 1 said in the beginning, that those  who devoted themselves to the cause of  their country suffer, unrecorded hardships, .for which, alas I medals are not  given. Even this section of, history, is  .futile, for, as what I have set down is  strictly true, 1 could not give real  names, because I have had uo opportunity of consulting/,with either captain or ..sentinel, and do not know but  one or other might object to -the revelation of his identity.���������Cassell's Magazine.

TWENTY GLASSES OF  TEA A DAY.  That ts .Vol, an Unusual  .\iiiuhei- for a litis  slan I'casiuil Co I.'rliilc.  Among the few things for which  Bussia desorvedely enjoys a creditable  and universal reputalion, Bussian tea  doubtless occupies a prominent place,  both on account of ils quality and  mode of preparation and consumption.  In the first place: there is no such thing  as Boissian tea in tho literal sense of  the world. It is entirely an article imported from China,'which country will  probably continue for a long time to  be chief source of tea supply for tho  Bussian markets. Tea in Russia is  very dear, but that is due to the heavy  expenses of transport and custom  duties. The Russians drink enormous  quantities of tea, sufficient to frighten  any  foreigner.  .The poor people���������and, alas! the Bussian people are the poorest in existence  ���������use . the so-called "brick"  tea.   This  is the cheapest sort,, being mixed with  the'stems and compressed by some\ad-  hesivo' gum into dry   cakes of various  sizes,    resembling   in    its'    outward  appearance    plug   tobacco.    This  tea,  which would probably prove poisonous  to anyone else, is consumed by the Russian workingruan at the average rate  of about twenty slakans, or tumblers,  a day; the Russian stakan being quite  equal to five of the little  thimbles of  cups  used at   our  afternoon   teas.  Indeed; a Bussian won't be satisfied until   "the    seventh' perspiration   breaks  out," according to the popular saying.  Taking  into.. consideration   that  black,  sour or bitter,  brick-like -bread.,'  raw  onions,    garlic,  dried  leather-like fish  and strongly salted herrings are, usually  tho   .  CHIEF ARTICLES OF FOOD  of  the people  at large, one  must  not I  wonder  at   the   enormous  quantity  ofi  hot lea needed to still"!a' Russian thirst  and help'on nis digestion.  Of course, it is not tho "brick" tea as  used by the poor moujik that enjoys a  world-wide reputation, but that in use  among the middle and upper classes.  In such households tea at the price of  ������1 per pound, 0.91) o������ the English pound  avoirdupois, is quite an ordinary thing,  while in wealthier families ������2 jjcr  pound ..is frequently paid. There are  'choice'sorts of teas which are sold even  at ������15 per pound; but of these only  a few leaves are used to add an extra  delicious aroma to the ordinary lea.  Thus tho high quality of the tea itself  -brought overland and most carefully  packed, is the chief reason of its superiority over the teas in uso in Western Europe.  ./tut  .apart  from   tho  tea  itself,    the  Bussian  method  of  preparing  il   goes  a  long  way  (,o contribute  to  the fine  taste of (lie beverage.    In this process  the famous ".samovar" plays'the principal  part, and  a word or  two  of explanation    wilt    not'be    amiss.      The'  "samovar" is the utensil used only for  boiling the water.     They are  usually  m:ide of brass or copper, but there are  also silver samovars,  the inside being  lined with another metal.   In (he middle (here is a kind of chimney.or fire  receptacle,    around which  fresh    cold  water    is  poured  into    the    samovar.  Burning charcoal or    wood is thrown  into the chimney, arid it usually takes  about a quarter ot an hour before    tho  water    begins  to  boil,  this  being  announced by   a volume   of   steam from  under the   cover.       Then the   boiling  water  is  poured  upon  the  tea   in  the  pot, and the latter placed  on  the  top  of the samovar to keep warm, as lea-  eoseys are  unknown  in  Russia.      The  iiifusion is made very strong,   but only  about a.fifthor quarter of a glass    is  filled with it, the rest being filled up  with boiling water.     A slice of lemon  or milk is added according to lastp.  The newesl ory of the r-ondon waiters is lhat they are being ousted by  girls.

When  returning he came by way of the  tram, and while on the aerial part,  below the K. & S. track, the bucket he  was in by some means became unmanageable and tipped Mr. Hoge and the  contents, a quantity ol ore, into the  bin together, ft was almost a miracle  he was not killed, but lie got oil' with a  bad scalp wound only.  W. E. Kennedy, an old-time miner  in the camp, w������s> stricken with pneumonia some two weeks ago, and died  on Monday morning, tlie 20th inst.  He lay lor some days next doer to  death and then rallied, when his  friends saw a ray of hope, but on Saturday morning he got worse again and  remained unconscious till the end  came. He leaves a wife and three  small children to mourn the loss of a  loving husband and kind father. His  remains were taken to the Miners'-Union hall, the union taking charge o:  the funeral, which took place on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m., for the Sandon cem-  tery, the Kev. Saniord conducting the  servvces in the absence ol Rev. J. A.  Cleland. This was the first inteimwit  in the new cemetery, which had but  recently been purchased.  The Masonic Grand Lodge, 2Sth session, will convene at K.unloops on the  22nd prox.    '  It you have a constant hacking  cough that won't leave, try Dr. Wood's  Norway Pine Syrup. It cures the  Worst kinds of coughs and colds quick.  Karl's Clover Root Tea, for constipation its the best, and if after using it  you don't say so, return the . package  and get vour money. Sold at McQueen's Drng Store.  Report has it that a 100-yard foot  race is to take place at Silverton shortly between J.S. Gusty, of this city, and  B. M. Wilson, of Kossland. It will be  a case of Greek against Greek with a  Greek successful.  Mr. Compcau, of the Star mine, was  unfortunate ciiougn to havo the thumb  of his left hand cut completely ofr on  Thursday last, while shaving a stick of  wood with an axe. Tlie wound was  dressed in the hospital shortly after.  Chief Doolan informs us that he will  follow his catechism in enforcing tlie  Jaw this summer, from which he takes  tho following o.i'encps: Wilful murder,  Sodomy, Oppression of tlie poor miner,  and Defrauding the car man or mucker  of his legitimate wages. These are the  crimes tor which our vigilant Chief  says he will make arrests.  The Athabasca mine, at Nelson, has  taken a new way of settling differences with the men. Instead of offtsr-  ing S3.15 a day or iiine hours' wages at  35 cents per hour, as formerly���������a compromise betwfen the eight and ten���������  they are offering S3.00 a day and board  at ������5 50 a week. The proposition is  likely to be accepted, and satisfactory  all around.  The Nelson Tribune remarks tliat  Mr. A. W. McCunc is a large owner in  the Payne, and the Payne offers S3.00  a day to miners. Tlie same' Mr. Mc-  Cune owns a newspaper in Utah that  defends the miners at Bunker Hill and  Sullivan in trying to force a certain  company to pay higher wages; but Mr.  McCiino is running for senator where  his paper circulates. This course is  as strange as that of "Mr. Doofcy in  peace and in war."  Shilo'i's Consumption Cure cures  where others fail. It is the leading  Cough Cure, ancl no home should be  without it. Pleasant to take and goes  right to the spot. Sold by McQueen the  iJruggist.  The Miners Union of Sandon are to  be highly commended for the way in  which they take charge of and manage  the funer.ls of deceased brethren.  They managed that of Calaghan admirably, ancl did even better with that  of W. E. Kennedy on Tuesday last,  showing every attention lo the wants  of the widow and the children. In addition to paying all the funeral cx-  p-'iises of deceased they aro making up  a handsome purse to assist Mrs. Kennedy and the little ones in removing  to their old home in Edmonton. For  sucli consideration they will earn the  respect oi" nil classes of the community.  As there is a feeling prevalent that  a dance would be opportune after the  long rest, the band boys have decided  to give one in Virginia hall Tuesday  exening, June 6tn. This will, no  doubt, be tlie lost one of the se .son,  and from the way in which tlie ladies  of the town are lending their aid. it  promises to be one of the best. The  tickets will be S1.50, which will include supper in the ha 11. It will be in  order for citizens to patronize the band  dance, as they get the benefit of their  music, and it requires money to run a  band. With the exception of the purchase of the instruments and suits,  which most of the citizens generously  put up for, the members have had to  go down into their pockets to meet expenses, so a good attendance of friends  of the band should be expected on  Tuesday evening next.  \  %^^k^%''JM!?rfp^r$HlP''%rfp^!p'&'5f'  4*-  ���������������7*r  SOME HINTS.  ������  *>  4**  4*-  4*-  How often mothers are perplexed and driven nearly to  despair by their little ones losing appetite and refusing all  manner of food when children will take  *  *  *  *  4  *  H.
