 FIVE CENTS.  Editor of The Mining Review  Arrested at Nelson.  It is said that at some hour of Saturday night the Sandon Miners' Union  hall was broken into and the books  and papers of the union stolen therefrom. It is alleged that because The  Review, though doing what it can in  urging shorter labor hours For the  miners and proper wages, is opposed to  features of the late mining laws that  prevent miners and mine owners from  making contracts between themselves  ns to services and remuneration satis-,  factorv to both, that tie up the liberty-! There is practically no change in the  of Lhe subject���������like Chinamen in bond,; mining situation here during the past  ���������f-i.->f   i '-:- '    ��������� ���������      week.   So far as  the union 'and  the  supposed to be brought up. a summons  was served on him demanding his appearance in the court on Friday at 10  a.m. He failed to respond to this also  and Mr. Clifl'e was discharged without  a shadow of a suspicion resting on  him. The general public are inclined  to fair play, and we know the great  bulk of the members of tho union nre  as much so as fhe rest of the public.

A measurement of  the electro-motive force of the cells by  a  capillary electrometer., revealed the  fact that the electromotive force was  of the same  order as   that   produced  by the  contraction of a muscle,   and  amounted to about .0-1 or .05 volt.   Between  the excitation of the nerve and  the    maximum   electro-motive   force  there is a time-lag of about 1-1000 of a  second,   and   an   oscillatory   electromotive force  is generated   by a-single  momentary   excitation of   the   nerve.

WIUES AND MIMING.  TfiSTIJG THE  EIGHT-LOUR   til  A recent sale ol the Rainbow, near  Slocan City, is reported.  Silver still keeps at a shade above 00  cents on the New York market.  The Arlington is working with a  good force of men at union wages.  Reports of the New York markets  indicate -a upward tendency in the  price of iron.  The Freddy claim, close to tho Noonday, will probably be opened up from  a prospect state.  C. M. Wilson is putting in a flume  to do some hydraulic ni'ning at the  Coin, above Cody.  On the August Flower claim, on Silver mountain, owned by Netv Denver  people, a good showing of about five  inches of clean ore has been uncovered . i  _ There is quite a quantity of ore on  tne dumps of several of the prospects  on Wilson creek, which will be shipped  as soon as a trail can be completed to  where it has been mined.

This group consisted of  an elderly lady, wife of a judge up  countiy, her daughter and two men,  The daughter had been ordered home  to England for her health. The two  men���������well, that's where my slory  conies in.  "lily sympathies ought to have been  with the elder of those two, because  hei was a coffee planter, and so was f,  or 1 had been until a few weeks before. This coffee planter man was  evidently on familiar terms with Mrs.  . Judge and the young woman, and  Mamma seemed to treat him with distinguished consideration. Prom lhat  I gathered thai he was lhe favored  euitor. The other man was a perse-  vering lover, evidently, but not nearly as likely to win as his rival, judging  by the signs of parental inclination.  Ho was a young subaltern in a Britisli  regiment stationed up country, and  that was how and where he had made  tho acquaintance of Miss Edith���������I  may as well say at once that his name  was Cropley���������Lieut. Cropley. I soon  picked up the who! o. thread of Crop-  ley's slory. It was an old story; the  oDly new feature in it, to me, was the  pioinptness with which the young man  had managed to get leave of absence  and sail on that steamer as soon as  he knew that the coffee planter was  going to bo a fellow passenger with  Edith and her mother. I think the  mothei was rather surprised when  Ciopley bobbed' up on board; whether  Edith was equally surprised; I can't  say.  "With all my enterprise and in-  quisiliveness, I couldn't find out for  sure whether the girl's sympathies  weie with tho coffee planter and her  mother or with Cropley���������that is, until  the morning after we had all gone on  board and waited a night in the har-  hor. Until'thou, I thought she was  rather indifferent, ' with, perhaps a  slight natural preference for the  younger man. But then it was easy  to see that lhe poor girl's health was  I eeblo. / "  "Cioploy and I made friends ��������������������������� very  fast. He was an , ingenuous, whole-  souled youngster. From his way of  talking to ine, as we sat together late  that night by the ship's rail aiid smoked, watching the lights of the harbor, it was plain that he was anxious  to find some one lo roll his troubles  to. lie was not rich, f found, and the  coffee planter, 1 guessed, was. If he  could only get Edith to say, 'Yes;' ho  was quite prepared to leave the army  bikI go i back to Ceylon as a coffee  plantei, in hopes of being some day as  rich ai his rival.  " 'Bad move,' I said. 'The other man  has a long start of you on that line.  If you give up your red coat, you  tbiow away your strong suit, don't  you .see V  "1 don't know whet her he did see  it in that light, but I do know that  Cropley seemed wonderfully comforted  b> the interest I took in his affairs.  He wi-nt to bed���������or to bis bunk���������in a  more cheery mood than he had seemed  to be in when we first struck up acquaintance. Next -morning he was ap-  paiently  in  the best of  spirits.  "'I've been thinking ever what you  told me last night,' he said, puffing at  his pipe after tiffin, before the ladies  had .shown up on deck. "It is. a rum  tinng;,' he said ; 'this business is rather  like a game, isn't it?'  "I told him that both love and war  were huge gambles, and in both games  it was all-important to show a good  front to the enemy���������or the adversary.  This philosophy seemed to amuse him;  bui he certainly practiced il that  mormug, when Edith and her  molbei came on deck he joined them,  utterly unabashed by either tho presence of the coffee planter or the severe politeness of Mrs' Judge. And  the plsca seemed to work, toe, for Edith  talked to Crop'ey, listened to Cropley,  and asked Cropley questions about the  harbor, and the funuy boats, and the  pearl divers, which questions, for the  most part, he had to either refer to mo  or give up.  "It was a beautiful morning, and the  goose seemed to hang high for poor  Cropley���������so much so that his rival was  beginning to look as dejected as a man  in spotless white duck, with a shining,  freshly shaven face, can look. I mado  up my mind to tell Cropley at1 tho  first opportunity not to push things  (oo hard, or the mother might resort  to stringent measures, aad forbid  Edith to talk to him at all. That was  tho danger which I foresaw at that  timo.  "Cut then Cropley suddenly burst  into a blaze of glory as a here.  "We were all standing at the stern  rail���������five of us���������looking at tho small  ciaft below us dancing about on tho  light swell. A native seaman���������a Lascar from some piratical pari of Iho  Malay Peninsula���������came skipping nimbly along the top of the rail lhat was  to hang in bights from spring hooks  for some purpose or other. Ho apologized for disturbing us and passed on. In  less than a minute after he had passed we hoard the cry, 'Man overboard!'  behind  U3.  "Of course it was the Lascar who  had dropped from tho taffrail. Everybody ran to the starboard side of (he  dock, and there was the poor devil's  head bobbing up and down like a cork,  while his shipmates wero running  ovary way at onco to get out life  buoys. ������������������  (-"You see, there was no danger of  his drowning. You can't drown a  Lascar, unless you anchor him in ten  fathoms with a two-fathom cable. The  danger was in sharks; that was why  all the dingheys and sampans that  wero paddling about within a few  yards of the man held off from him  so, they were afraid of being upset by  the scramble of sharks that were sure  to come. And then, you see, the man  was only a Lascar, anyhow. A white  man or a high caslo native would have  been different.  "Just for one moment it was horrible. There was not a ripple near the  man as yet, but we all expected to see  the ripples in another moment, and  then���������the end of it. Edith's mother  drew her back from the rail. We  three men seemed momentarily paralyzed.  "Then, suddenly, young Cropley be-  gan getting his arms out of the sleeves  of his loose Chinese silk jacket. 1  shall never forget the way ho set  about it. There was an expression on  his face, which I can only describe as  pouting.. ���������  " 'Confound it,' he said, 'I suppose I  musl go.  "And the next moment he was over  lhe rail and flying, arms and legs all  spread out, through tho air, down to  lhe shining, swelling water whero the  Lascar's head was bobbing up and  down.  "What slruck mo about it all was  the tone in which he said those words,  'Confound it, I suppose 1 must go.' It  was just as if tho bugle call had interrupted him in a game that interested  him deeply. Things had evidently began to look bright for him, because  Edith was smiling, and I suppose ho  thought it 'a beastly bore, don't you  know,' for this fool of a Lascar to go  and drop into that shark pond on this  particular morning.  "And I suppose Cropley had quite  made up his mind that there would bo  no coming back for him. He was only  doing it all, I believe, because it was  'the thing' to do, and because it would  he a disgrace to the flag if this Lascar  ware eaten up like that without an  attempt on the part of any of the  'sahibs' to save him; and it did look  for.-a little time as if things were going that way. But he was pleasantly  surprised, so was I, so was Edith, so,  I believe, was.even Cropley's rival. We  had none of us counted on one very  simple .fact in natural'history, .namely, that sharks, with all their ferocity,  are very timid. The .splash Cropley  made as he dropped into the water  saved' two lives. Probably it came  just, in time.  "There was an answering sudden  swirl as he dropped in, and I oven  thought I could see a long fin cutting  through the water, going, away from  the two men. The sharks were rushing away from the splash, as they always do, though they may be counted  on to come back as soon as everything  gets quiet again. .But before they  could' come hack one of tho ship's  boats that had been moored at the  foot of the. companion ladder was  alongside the Lascar and the Englishman. They ;wc.re both pulled in  safe. , '.-'.-.       .-'. ' -.,,  "That does illustrate.what you were  saying about heroes not making heroic  speeches,  doesn't  it?"  "Weil, I don't quite know whether  it does or not," said.the stout man  with the cigar. "But- how about the  girl ?"     '  "Oh, the girl? Well, curious thing  about that affair. How do'you'suppose it ended '!"  "She, of course, foil dead in love  ���������with young Cropley���������no mistake at all  about it this time. Then her mother  tried to put a spoke in his wheel, in  spile of the strong public opinion that  sprang up on board before we got as  far as Aden. For, of course, Cropley  immediately, became the hero of the  ship. It was the coffee planter himself who did tho trick for young Crop-  ley. ���������  "My prosperous friend first went  and had an interview tete-a-tete with  Mamma, after which that lady treated Cropley with'a groat deal more  urbanity and consideration than she  had been doing. And before we all  separated at Southampton, Cropley  told me his rival had offered him a  one-third share in the coffee plantation if he, Cropley, would cut the army  and go back to Ceylon to manage  things there for him, so that the middle-aged planter might retire and live  at ease in Europe.".  "Did Cropley take the offer ?" I-  asked.  "Indeed, he did," said Clarence.  "And he took Edith, too." i  OOLOHIAL SETTLEMENT.  A LADIES' TRAINING HOME IN PROSPECT OF ESTABLISHMENT.

Tho article, which is given unusual prominence in The Times, is from tho pon  jf If rs. Filzgibbon, of Toronto, a stepdaughter of tho la to D'Alton McCarthy. Mrs. Fitzgibbcn is herself the originator of the novel scheme outlined.  The article in The Times is as follows :���������  A  loltor on the subject  ot a   prospective   training  home  for  lady  colonists   to  be established in   tho Northwest  Territories of Canada   which was  published   in  our columns  a few  days  ago, draws attention lo a now and not  unimportant development of tho movement   of   Imperial   expansion,   ft  has  begun   to  be recognizod as  an  evil  in  the movement that ono result is to deplete this country of a valuable and energetic section of its manhood, while it  leaves women in excessive numbers unprovided for.   Each fresh census shows  the   disproportion   between    the   numbers of men and women to bo increasing.    Tho  surplus  of  a quarter  of    a  million of women over men which used  to be talked of wilh some alarm twenty  years ago has risen to a million and a  quarter, and shows no sign of probable  diminution.  Ingenious calculations aro  made to show the percentage of women  who, putting other causes for remaining single aside, musl remain unmarried  for  want of a sufficient  number  of men  to provide husbands for  them  all,  and a demonstration of the  large  number  of women who are  forced  to  work   in   order   to  provide   themselves  with bread is to bo readily found in the  overcrowded   stale   of  all   professions  which  aro   open   to thoir   competition.  Thai the United Kingdom should eventually become a country in which women   largely   predominate   in   Lhe   population  is  a consequence  of Imperial  expansion,  which  the most ardent Imperialists  would  shrink from  contemplating.   It   is  obvious  lo   those   who  have  acquaintance  wilh  the  facts    of  colonial   settlement    lhat   there  is  no  need  for  suoh a contingency to  arise.  The evil of the growing disproportion  needs   only   to   be   noted   in   order   to  bring  ils own remedy into  operation.  The women who are a surplus here are  badly wanted in tho newly-settled districts of the empire. The whole quea-  tior resolves itself into one of 'organization by means of which they shall be  enabled to take the part that naturally  belongs ;to  them in a development! so  important.to  their welfare.  It is perhaps difficult to  realize at  h'ome, but it will be clearly in the mind  of every one who has travelled observantly through the outlying portions of  tho empire, thai one of the most urgent  needs  which  declare   themselves after  safety to life and property has been assured in a new district is  the need of  industrious,    cheerful      and    healthy  women,     prepared      to   exert    themselves   in   their    natural   capacity    as  home-makers.  Classes  in our sense  of  the  term    disappear,    rapidly in  new  countries, but the traditions, tastes and  habits which tend to form class where  populations   are! numerous   enough   to  supply   a sufficient   number   offndivv  iduals   of   each  kind  remain,   and* the  men of all classes who find themselves  thrown together, in new circumstances,  need women of all classes to.make their  homes., The  doubt which presents itself is not,whether women  are wanted on tho outskirts of civilization, It is  whether women of the right kind can  be enabled to face the conditions which  they will find there with a fair chance  of success.   One of th'p many classes of  Englishmen who migrate to the newer  portions  of   the  empire is   the  young  English    gentlemen. ���������  Sons   of  clergymen, lawyers, ductbrs, military arid naval officers of good breeding and trTT-  dition's, but as poor in worldly possessions as the sons of, artisans, go in increasing  numbers every year.     These  men   in  different  portions of   the empire have held  their place as natural  leaders in the'movement of expansion.'  They  need   the "women of  their    own  class  to make their homes,  and it has  been  generally  assumed  that  this  requirement could not ba met,   But the  possibility suggests itself, as one of the  consequences   of    Lhe-  more    intimate  knowledge now generally possessed of  (he conditions of the problem, that the  young    English    gentlewomen of   this  class are perhaps no less naturally fitted to take a place in leading a move  ment of women outwards towards the  borders of the empire than their brothers have- been in leading men. They  are hardier, more active in out-of-door  habits, better bred and belter fed than  their contemporaries of the, less-favored laboring classes. They have the intelligence to initiate, and, like their  brothers, they are driven by the wholesome spur of poverty either present or  to come. Where they may have thp  courage to make openings for themselves leading to material success oth^r  women will undoubtedly follow, and  if the endeavor be judiciously directed  another generation may see a common  acceptance of the custom that the  young women no less than the young  men of the United Kingdom should confidently seek   a   living    wherever tho  British! flag flies in a temperate climate.  DELIGHTFUL, CLIMATE.  .   It is with a view of putting this possibility to the test of practice that the  institution of a training home for lady  colonists in the centre of the fruitful  prairie lands of the Northwest  Territories of Canada is now proposed. The  intention is that in such a home young  ladies, either from the United Kingdom  or from other parts of the empire who  have a desire to take part in the work  of settlement, should receive the necessary training and be prepared for (he  practical conditions of tho life to which  they propose to   devote their energies.  There is much to be said in favor of the  execution of such a scheme. The Canadian prairies offer an admirable field  for Iho initiation of an experiment of  the kind.   The climate   is  one   of   the  best in the world, the soil is good, land  is so cheap that one year's moderately  successful crop will  repay  the capital  cost of purchase as well  as the  actual  cost  of pioduction,   markets    aro    at  hand  for  the disposal of produce,  lhe  position is-relatively near lcEngland,  and tho moral surroundings are of the  wholesome kind  to which parents and  guardians could  without  fear  confide  the destinies of   the  young  people   in  whom they take an interest.     To feel  thai  in caso of urgent necessity a personal  visit is'not impossible would be  a consolation  to  many  parents  viewing the departure of a first daughter  with natural dismay.      To know   that  there  are  no  physical  dangers   to   he  faced is a guarantee of first importance.  Nowhere more  than  upon the Canadian  prairies are women needed for the purpose of investing  the bare  log houses  known as "shacks" with the comforts  and   tho digmiy   of   homes.      But   the  objeciton  to their presence which  has  hitherto seemed in a large number of  instances insuperable is that they have  noL the'necessary knowledge, and lhat  to face the life without it  is  to subject themselves to too severe a strain.  The object of a training home situated  in   the Northwest  Territories  will,  of  course, be to teach on the prairies the  life of the prairies. Tho Canadian Government  has already  greatly    helped  the intelligent development of praiiie  seiilembiu by ihe institution of ex^eii-  menlal farms, of which the operations,  conducted    at    Government    expense,  serve to raise the scientific level of local farming.    It is suggested that the  ladies'  training home should be established  in  connection   with  one  of   the  experimental farms where the best instruction' in   practical agriculture and  its supplementary sciences can he readily    obtained.     Dairying,    gardening,  poultry-rearing,    bee-keeping,     bread-  making,   cooking,    washing   and  other  household  arts would  form  a part  of  the  course,    and  it   is unnecessary   to  dwell oir the vaiue of such instruction,  given within sight  of the farm plot upon which it was lo be carried lo  personal  use.   It is believed that women  so  instructed    may  in some  instances  purchase and work land for themselves.  In the majority of cases it is supposed  that they will in the first instance work  in co-operation with their farmer brothers on a system of mutual profit.  ADVANTAGES TO BR DERIVED.  The institution  of such a college, if  carried   to a   successful   issue,   would  solve the    first    difficulty    which presents itself to the minds of many parents anxious  to  give  their daughters,  with due precautions,  lhe opportunity  of learning to make a practical career.  Girls could in   such   an institution fit  themselves   for   a settler's life.     But  there is a practical objection which has  to be taken into consideration. Education is costly, and in the families from  which  the  majority  of these girl  settlers    would/presumably    be     drawn  money is usually scarce.     At tha age  of nineteen or twenty, when a college  bourse would possibly .begin,  the    boy  who goes to farm in tha colonies hires  himself as an unskilled laborer to     a  local farmer and  gains his experience  while he    earns his    bread.     For    the  girl's education parents   'who have no  money to spare would be asked to pay.  To make the first working of the experiment successful it is essential that  the cost , of  tho scheme should  be  reduced to  the  lowest possible figure. If  the   Canadian, Government    felt    the  value   of introducing    a good   class of  setilemenlto   Lhe Northwest Territories to be. worth,the expenditure of   a  little money, and showed itself disposed to subsidize, a system of organized  institutions, in";connection    with    the  existing system of experimental farms,  private subscription    and    endowment  might then do more to bring a serviceable training^m the essential requirements of   a settler's    life    within    the  reach of ladies desirous    of    entering  upon a colonial career.      The successful inauguration of suoh a scheme, copied, as it could scarcely, fail to be,    in  other colonies, would render a service  to the cause of Imperial consolidation  of which  the substantial value   would  long outlast more showy performances  professing to    further    the    same  objects. -  BRITONS MM CAMIBALS'  REMARKABLE   &ISC0VEB7ES   MADE  AT BRAINTHEE, ENGLAND.

He prospered. Dross turned to  gold at his touch. He was flattered  profusely ; he was envied bitterly. And  yet  he  was  not happy,  He was not happy. As he paced the  '.floor of his private office on the afternoon of a sultry summer's day, it was  plain that he was neither happy nor  even satisfied. His hands were clasped behind him, his head bent in deep  thought, his face drawn with care. At  lasi the fear that he had been fighting  for mouths had possessed him ; ho knew  now that, so far from his life having  been the sucooss^he world deemed it,  it had been an utter failure. He looked round on lhe luxurious fittings of  .his office, he thought of all his wealth,  and an exclamation, half impatient,  half despairing���������escaped him as he Recollected that not all the wealth of all  the world could purchase for him that  which was more than life itself���������the  love of his wife.  He had not at fiisl hungered after  Ihis love. Marriage- with him had been  business, not sentimenL. He scoffed lhe  , idea of such nonsense. He hud asked  her father, nut Laura herself, for her  hand, and Mr. Leigh had riot hesitated to sell his daughter. What was the  consideration in this deal in flesh and  " blood was never known, and, indeed,  does not concern us. But so it came  about that Laura Leigh, whoso girlish  yrace still lingered to heighten tho  charm of her budding womanhood,  whose loyal heart and spotless soul  shaped the glory of her form and  lighted her beautiful eyes, was wedded  to Reginald Mortimer, upon whom the  pleasures of life had already begun to  pall  Laura, rightly or wrongly, had been  too dutiful a daughter, and with all  a woman's unreasonableness, she had  loved her selfish father too tenderly lo  think of crossing his wishes ; and so,  with the best grace possible, aflor many  hours of .lonely anguish, she had submitted herself to the sacrifice her par-  en I demanded of her, and had gone  to (he altar with the husband of his  choice. But after the ceremony, instead of the supple, yielding girl that  ho expecled, Reginald Mortimer, much  to his mortification, had found himself  facr- to face with a slrong-souled,' perfectly self-possessed woman.  " I do not love you," she explained.  " Why on earth did you not say so  before 1" he asked savagely.  " When did you ask me?" she   replied   and swept from his presence.  -Left alone, his first impulse was lo  rage and- 'urse. But somehow the picture of her standing before him, erect,  unflinching���������the matchless magnificence of h'er beauty heightened by the  intonsity of lhe moment���������insinuated itself into h's soul, and shamed. _and  quieted him. And after that day he  had never tound tho lace to reopen the  question.  Su  for months thoy had  lived  their  lives���������together, yet separated by an impassable gulf. And during this, time the  ,   heart,   the, whole  nature  of   Reginald  Mortimer    was   in    perpetual protest.  Sometimes he fumed with fury at the  thought  of    having    been 'thwarted,  sometimes he cursed himself for a fool  in ever marrying her.   But as he lived  ��������� daily  in   the presence of her  radiant  ! beauty,  as  the graceful  tenderness  of  her daily life.sank into his soul, as his  ears caughi"daily the haunting music  of her: voice and speech, gradually; he  wat delivered from the gross materialism into which his love of nioney  had  dragged him.   Her purity purified him,  her nobility ennobled him, and his life  insensibly  began  to shape Itself anew.  He began to feel in his heart strange,  unreasonable stirrings���������to linger over  .  things  that  she had touched,   to long  ' foi-..her presence, to be happy in her  happiness. . He fell  into the habit    of  going straight  home    from    business,  that he might have dinner  with her.  When  she  spoke  he  hung   upon    her  words, and her voice soothed him, like  simple   music;    ho   found    delight   in  watching  the flexible play of  her de-   still   "'ho   inspired  her with    any   re-  crime black enough1; but to have thus  cut her off from all hope of what is  besL in a woman's life, and to have  bound h'er for all time to himself, whom  naturally she loathed, the realization  of these things made him hate himself  utterly.  " If only it could be undone I" he  thought. "If only I could set her  free I"  To have been able to tell her that  she was as free as if he had never  been���������that, unless she wished it, she  need never look upon him again,���������this  would have gladdened his soul, though  it had wrung his heart. But it was  impossible,  And so his thoughts were full of anguish that summer afternoon as he  paced tho private room of his office.  To alone for all his cruelly he fell  prepared   Lo  make  any sacrifice.  "But what canT do?" ho groaned, as  he sank into a chair and buried his  head in his arms. "Is there no way  of atonement ?"  Into his thoughts and feelings as ho  sat there we cannot pry. From time to  lime, at longer and longer intervals,  a heavy sob shook him, But when he  rose, after a long hour had passed,  Ihorc was a new light in his eyes, and  on his face the glow of a hope and a  resnlntion.  " That is the way," he mused, as he  began to open some letters. " I'll do  if���������I must do it; there is no other  way."  L was rather late when ho reached  home that evening.' Laura met him'as  usual, wilh her sweet smile-and word  of welcome, just as she would have welcomed a brolher. As he looked al her  he almost faltered in his purpose���������how  could he boar to leave her ? But the  pursuit of wealth' had taught him tenacity, and, so wh'en they were parting  for   the  night ho said :  " It must be good-bye, as well as  goot" nighl. 1 expect I shall be off before you' are about in the morning.  And   I shall   probably  be away   for  a  few days, so "  "Indeed I How is Lhat?"  ' '1  nave  lu go oii  oariy  on  urgent  busiuuss."  " uh, well, good-bye I" And she held  out  her  hand.  He retained it/ ono momenl longer  than- was necessary and looked at her.  Then he drooped bis eyes, like a man  dazed with magnificence, Then he  raised them upon her again, and said,  haltingly:  '��������� Luuia,   if���������if  I mighl  kiss  you."  'i he look in his eyes and lhe lone  in his voice, wenl to the woman's heart  and. iu spite of herself, made her hesitate for cue single instant. But then  there came flooding back upon her the  old, overwhelming sense oi the wrong  he had done her, and the old intense  repugnance toward him, aud she felt  tha. she could moio easily die than  allow her lips to touch his. Unconsciously she became distant and hard,  she drew her hand out of his, and her  voice was cold as sho replied:  " 1 Ihjughl that question was set-  tleo   between   us  long ago."  He  bowed his head.  " Good-bye, Laura," ho said again.  " Good-bye, Reginald," she answered.  And he was gone.  Mrs.   Mortimer,   like   all  young, widows, was charming.   She was not yet  more  than two or  threo  years out of  her   teens,   but  her  exquisite     beauty  am. healthy vivacity wero stei-.lied by  an imperceptible air of matronly gravity    In addition to this there was that  halo   of   domestic   romance   about   her  which made her at once inteiesting to  whomsoever heard her slory.  -  She had been married, so  the  whisper wont, whilst still a mere girl, and  against her own good will,   to  a man  at least twenty years her senior. But  though  the marriage had been, one * of  convenience,   they   had   lived   together  not  unhappily for a twelvemonth, and  people who had known Reginald Mortimer in th'ose days spoke of the great  Change  for  the  better  that  had  been  gradually  coming  over   the man.   Bill-  one morning; ho left home early- on urgent, business, and nothing was heard  or seen of him for a month.  Al last he was found���������at least, there  wa.s no. doubt it was him,���������-in a dirty  canal, 'utterly unrecognizable, save for  his clothes, having apparently been  stuck fast in the' miidfor some considerable time. How he had got there  was never discovered,' but murder for  the purpose of robbery was-hinted. Be  that as it! may,- the whisper generally  concluded; that he had left her .piles  of money; and; he .would be a fortunate man who could persuade her to  enter for the second time into , the  holy and blessed state of matrimony.  Nevertheless, five years after the announcement of her widowhhod, she Was  still. Mrs. Mortimer. Amongst the  men. who pai'd their court to her,Were  few  who  eveD  interested her;    fewer  will. But' ho differed from the mob of  men who 'crowded round her in that  sometimes he seemed to shun her. She  could not understand this; *ue did not  like ' it, and if she had not been on  the point of loving, she would have  hal������C him for it. As it was, theie were  times when she could not help a feeling of anger that he, of all men, should  seem indiiferenl to her beauiy���������though  again, at other times she was consoled by tho fact, which she did not tail  to discover, that when they were under the same room, he never took his  eyes off her, except when she looked at him.  Aud so, marked thus by the ebb and  flow of hope, time passed and destiny  tarried uot. On the evening when she  found herself under his escort, she was  conscious of being aware that something critical was about to happen.  Bashful almost as a schoolboy, he had  ventured to solicit the privilege of attending her, a privilege which, indeed  she had graciously granted, and had  even, with a consciousness that she was  doing something remarkably bold, but  which sbo could not help doing?- suggested a walk instead of lhe cub he  was   on   the  point  of  hailing.  II began fo seem, however, thac her  expectation would not be realized, for  they had nearly reached her house, and  nothing but the merest commonplaces  had passed between them. It was very  disappointing. She felt almost as if  she had been slighted. And yet, withal, she was "more than conscious as she  walked by his side, of that strange  reminiscent feeling���������more than ever  aware of something in his voice that  scijmed Lo echo like forgotten music  in her heart.  ' 'Do you know, Mr. Maxwell," she  said suddenly and spontaneously,' ' I  sometimes have the feeling that the person I am speaking with1 has been familiar lo me in some strange, forgotten, far-off, past ? Do you think oilier people have such' a feeling? Does il  ever come lo you ?"  He looked down at h'er and smiled  wilh a sort of grave tenderness.  " Yes," ho replied slowly, " I think  I have had such an experience. But  what makes you say that now? May I  flatter myself that you have that feeling  when  you  are with  me?"  " What a horrible man you are," she  replied banteringly ; " I cannot bear  thought readers."  " Ah I" he exclaimed, " you see f was  helped by the fact that I have Ihe same  feeling, when I am near you," <���������  "Indeed; how sLrange !"  " Nol strange at all, if you will excuse me," he replied,���������" not strange al  all, at least to me."  "Well, I confess, that lo my mind  the   explanation   is  hidden."  " Don't you think that it is tho  drawing of two souls toward each' oilier (hat causes this feeling? Don't you  (hink il is love ? Forgive mo, Mrs. Mortimer, I love you. I have almost begun  to hope that���������tell me I am, not mistaken���������say you will be my wife."  She put her hand in his.   "I understand  now,  I understand," she said.  ' 'Do you understand ?" he asked, tak-  add Twice Wooed, Once Won  ing  her  olher  hand  in  his  and  looking her full in the face. " xVre you sure  you understand fully, and can you for-  I give mo  the past, Laura ?"

' 'The past, the past 1" she still repeated, looking earnestly at her lover, the first faint conception of the  truth growing gradually yet rapidly to  conviction.  ' 'Reginald ?"  she  said. And she  hid  her face in her hands, and staggered as  if  she would fall.  He caught her in-his arms.  ' 'Look up, my love. Kiss me, and say  you  torive me.

There was that in  her which forbade it utterly. The  slightest . hint ot a desire to pass  the boundary that divided them, and  instantly her eyes were filled with a  hard and dangerous light, her flexible  lip-3 were rigid, and her head was  poised erect and defiant: And so gradually he schooled himself to tho inevitable ; he learned to put out of his  hearc, all the selfish hopes he had ever  cherished  regarding  her.  But as his love grew'.- so did his vision clear, and it dawned upon him that  though she smiled radiantly and thanked hini graciously, nothing that he ever  did availed to make her happy.^.'-The  lov������ that made him keenly anxious "to  gratify her every wish was revealed  to him, deep hidden beneath all;the  outward seeming, a need that he could  not reach, and iii her heart a despair  that he could not heal.

She was  .-certain she , had never seen him before. Why, then, was it that she never met him but her mind involuntarily, went groping blindly amongst the  dead ashes of her memory ?

It gets "rattled." Instead  of. staying quietly oh one perch -until  the cat laboriously climbs near it and  then quietly flying to another, thus  tiring out its -antagonist, it dashes  wildly about tho room, beating' itself against the windows, and exhausting itself in vain struggles.,  Sooner or later in its mad frenzy,  tho bird dashes too near the waiting  cat, which pounces upon it and the  little  tragedy is over,  Even a cage is no protection to lhe  bird unless the cat has been warned  by repeated punishments not to interfere with it. If the cage is small, the  cat climbs on top and lies on.its belly  leisurely reaching one forepaw in alternately on either sido until it can  clutch tho bird. If tho cage is large  tho cat " rattles" the bird by dashing at it, first from one side, then the  other. The bird in turn, instead of remaining in lhe middle, out of reach,  dashes from ; side to side, beating  against the wires until it can be seized and dragged out.  ' FADS OF EMBROIDERY.  '.

The mining statistics of the place might be printed  on  the correspondence paper   of-  all  the  business houses and hotels of the place,  bringing our wealthy surroundings before the attention of many who might  be induced thereby  to place some of  their capital with us.   There are many  other ways through which united effort  might do much to bring the wealth of  our surrounding'hills more fully  before the.attention of capilalis!s,and all  can be done more effectually through  a Board of Trad etthan any other way.

The reason for the ''appearance of Rod  and Gun, however, is obvious, and the  wonder-is it has'not come before.  Hitherto the fishii-g and game interests- of the Dominion have been totally neglected. Occasionally in an  English or American sporting magazine -were to, be noticed' stray, references and articles 'concerning the great  Dominion, which- gave but a crude  idea of the sporting possibilities of the  country. There are 'many ..ardent  sportsmen in Canada,, ri'pt only in the  east but here in the west, who. have  enjoyed the delights' of hunting and  fishing under the shadow of tlio Rockies. It- is to such as these that Rod  and Gun will be 'especially welcome, as  it will give the views of able writers,  some of whom are already well known  authorities on sporting , matters. It,  will also aim to disseminate accurate  and useful information as to the choice  fishing and shooting districts. From  the appearance of its first number-a  successful future nuiy safely be predicted for the new venture, which it  may for once be truly said it will till a  long felt . want in sporting circles.���������  Revelstoke Herald.

Thecommon   spruce   tree   of   the  American forests furnishes the great  bl the wood pulp that is daily  converted into printing paper. The  word "common" is chosen advisedly.  Time was when in New England and  the northern tier of states spruce trees  were as familiar to the people and almost as plentiful as the grass of the  fields.  The   inevitable  result   has been so  rapid a  contraction of   tlie   available  spruce area in  the United States tli.it  ninny of our paper manufacturers have  been forced   already   to ������;o over into  Canada lor spruce loins.   The situation  is not keenly critical,  but it would be  folly to declare that it is not alarming.  American ingenuity may yet discover  something to take the place of* spruce  .puJp in tlie making of paper, but up tn  date it surely lias not done so.    Upon  the best inside authority it has  lately  been declared that, if the present pace  of spruce land is kept up, in live 3'ears  from now there will not bo a stick of  the timber   standing   in   the   United  States. "-  <> Pores try and pulp manufacturing  data arc in some instances difficult of  of access, but the most reliable sources  of information, after the most careful  ��������� investigation by a Boston newspaper,  yield the following facts :  Practically the only large" spruce  areas available for pulp now lei'tc-in  America���������that is, for the supplv beyond the immediate future���������aro in  parts of Maine and the British L'rov-  ��������� iHc.es.  Maine .has been a most attractive  field for spruce pulp operations. She  lvas a pioneer in the industry, and she  now finds most of her own spruce contiguous to water-power cut off. On the  Androscoggin river there are numerous pulp mills, which, when worked to  theii full capacity, require about 250,-  000,000 feet of spruce logs annually,  flnd''it is reported on good authority  that the standing spruce in the territory tributary to these mills cannot  last over-four years ,nt the present rate  of consumption. "Why," was the recent remark of a Boston manufacturer,  "they are already grinding np bean  poles and boughs for pulp down on the  Androscoggin���������this, to save the larger  trees���������and God only knows what they  will do live years from now."  Contiguous to the Kenebec river  the spruce lands have been so nearly  stripped that they can no longer supply the pulp and saw mills with logs.  In northern M>iine the water-ways  that How into the St. John river above  , Grand Falls, in Canada, have mist of  the" smaller, growth of spruce still  'sanding along their banks and for  many miles inland. This is because  there was prolit to the lumbermen  only in the large logs. The cost of  driving and booming to tho mills was  ������2.50 per thousand feet on an average,  and it did not pay to cut and drive the  small growth.  And here is the only part of Maine  where large pulp and paper mills can  uotv   lind   a  supply  of good   timber.  Where there is good water power convenient   to   these spruce   tracts   and  transportation   is   sufliciciitly   cheap  these properties  are being rapidly developed, or nt least  being bought up  by paper capitalists as a safeguard for  the future.   'But,' compared with   the  enormously increasing consumption of  white paper, both in  this country and  in Europe, the spruce pulp product of  these reniaininc; forest-lands in  northern Maine promises to put oil' an evil  day of actual exhaustion only a year  or two at the best. ���������  ��������� It is to Canacia, then,  that wo must  '���������turn for our spruce in the future���������the  very near future, too.   And this condition  has alread3'awakened  our provincial   neighbors  to the   opportunity  which they possess  for developing tho  pulp and paper industry along our own  water-ways, so that if our manufacturers'here in  the states   would provide  early for tho inevitable, they have no  time to lose in  the matter of selection  and  purchase of   Canada lands.   The  price   is already advancing,   and   the  comparatively few. water powers   are  becoming scarcer on the market.   The  cry of; the''paper manufacturers'is "On  lo Canada."

H.  Another man than Henderson would  have been discouraged.     He was still  entitled, according to tho custom and  usage prevailing on the Canadian side,  to   hia  discovery  claim  on   Gold   Bottom, and as discoverer ho was entitled  to still  another.      On  the  other  fork  just spoken of he  was  entitled  to    a  discovery    claim and one    more.      He  staked all four of these.     The ice was  *   commencing  to foim.      Having   made  his  clean-up and  divided   the   money,  he started to record.     On the way he  met  Andy Hunker,  who  told  him  he  had    made    a discovery  on   the  tame  oreek where Henderson made his second    discovery,  and he  thought Henderson would not be able to hold discovery  there.      The  whole  creek  was  now called Hunker    Creek,  and  Gold  Bottom   was a fork of Hanker Creek. |  Hunkei  had found  tho  splendid pios-  pect of throe dollars in the pan. Henderson, therefore, being uncertain, and  seeing the latter was probably richer,  staked No. 3 above    Hunker's  discovery,   which  was   two miles   below  his  own.     A discovery bad been made by  Solomon Marpak on Bear Creek, whxh  enteis Klondike between Hunkor ancl  Bonanza.     Being entitled to a location  ���������   heie   also,  Henderson   staked  another  claim.      When he reached lioi ty Mile  und applied to record, he. learned that  the, law had just been changed ;  that  he  could hold  but one  clo^ni   in    the  whole Klondike.     So, as it teemed to  be the  best,  ho recorded No.  3 above  on  Hunker    Creek.      Hendeison    was  sjok all tho following winter.     In the  epiing, far fioin being disheartened by  the ill luck that had befallen him, he  went   up  the    Klondike    prospecung,  finding some gold on h'lal Cieek, then  known  as "Too  Much  Gold,"  by  mistake   m   descupuon   a smaller  stream  below it was le-cordod as "Too  Much  Gold," and now bears that name,   Ro-  tuimng, he went up to Stewait, making u discoveiy on  HENDERSON CREEK,  wh.x>h was named after hint, and after  gltxjug a long ttisiauce up ������>tewart  litvei and scaling a sice at tho mouth  01 the JMctiuesten, he leiumed. He  ai^plied lo Ottawa for Lhe giant oi the  town site, but his application was  never answered.  Prom an injury he received on Indian River ho was laid up, and stalled  out of the country; but the steamer  upon wh^h he took passage was. uozen.  wi at Cucle City, whoie he lemained  all wmtei under the doctor's caie. He  was lu Dawson the summer of 1898, but  was unable to woik or to prospect as  betoie. i met Hendeison then, and  wjls impressed by ihe earnestness of  the man. I asked him iX he was not  discouraged by all that had happened.  "No," leplied he; "theie are as nch  mines yet to be discos eied as any that  have been found." I am not quae sure  that he believed that, but it was characteristic of tho man to say so. He  was obliged to sell his Huuker claim  for a fraction of its value.  Again, in Seattle, 1 saw Henderson.  He had just come from Dawson. Unsuspicious and trusting, he had been  robbed on the steamer of all the money  he had���������eleven hundred doitais. He  had. but one thing left. U was tho  golden squaie and myrtle leaves of  the badge of the Yukon Order of Pioneers, of which he was a member. J'or  some reason ho insisted on pinning it  himself to my vest, saying. "You keep  1  will  lose   it   loo.   I  am    not  had boon staked as far bolow and as  far above Discovery as was considered,  in the light of past experience, to be  worth whde. The middle of the creek  was considered the best part. Obviously, as there was small time to prospect,  chance predominated. But as soon as  Lhe first holed to bed-rock began to  show a richness greater than anything over known in the Yukon, many  of those who had slakeo\ blindly, as a  mere    speculation,    without  plan    or  " No good,' 'Skim diggings," 'Bar  diggings," 'Moose flat.' were the answers received.

There is no end of stories of  the curious luck that accompanied tho  filling'up- of Bonanza and El Dorado.  Tho following account of how El Dorado came to be staked has more, interest than ordinary in ,that it is told  by one who wais not only, one of' tho  first who staked there, but also who  supplied the readers of Harper's Weekly with the first^direot news and photographs from the : new - diggings���������  namely, William D.'-Johns."' Mr. Johns  was in the neighborho: ' Forty Mile  when word of :Carmac:. :scovery ar-,  rived, and was one oi ..lose who-did  not believe in the truth of ,it.; Ho was  therefore not in the first stampede.

So  when, on the morning; of; the;day that  we were to start.from Forty Mile, we  found that our boat had been stolen,  he threw up his hands and refused to  go. But upon inquiry;I found: that it  was still j possible for us to go. I  found some \ iht&n who owned a boat,  and they told us that if certain parties  to whom they had ilroihised the use of  it did not return in fifteen minutes  WE COULD TAKE THE BOAT.  "The men did not turn up, and in  half an hour we were, towing the5 boat  up the Yukon.

'Ovor on che othor side,'  ho replied, indicating tho way, and wo  thought no more of it then. 'Where  are you going to-day?" hei asked us."  " 'To prospect that   pup,'   I  replied.  'Do you know anything about it?"  ���������'������������������"'Oh, I found a five-cent   piece    on  rim-rock, a mile up.'  /"He left us.     We still    thought he  was off on a little hunt.  "We started toward tho 'pup.' When  we reached the mouth, we followed tho  tortuous course of tho stream. Fred  Bruceth stopped and pointed to tho  brook.  -.'.." 'Some one is working; the water is  muddy,' said he.  "Like hunters who havo scented  game, we,lapsed into silenco, and, with  eyos and ears alert, kept on. Wo had  gone only a little ways, when suddeni-  ly we came upon four men. Three of  them' wero standing around the  fourth, who was holding a gold-pan.  All were intently looking into the pan."  The. man with the pan was Antono,  and the other three were J. J. Clements, Frank Phiscator, and old man  Whipple. When they looked up and  saw us, they' acted like a cat caught  in a cream-pitcher. Seeing that we  had found them out, they loosened up  and  TOLD US ALL  with one claim on El Dorado,' besides  his Bonanza claim. He was stoutly  TRYING TO HOLD ALL THREE.  "A party of Finns soon' cama along  headed by a man named Cobb. They  did not stake, but went on and, turned  up Bonanza. They were tho only  other persons on the creek that day.  That.night in camp we discussed naming tho new creek. Old man Whipple  wanted iL called 'Whipple Creek.' BuL  we were rather hot aL tho Whipple  crowd for having used us so ill in trying to steor us away^from' the creek;  and, besides, old man Whipple had  tried once to jump Halslead, and Eric-  son's claim on American Creek. After  several names wero meniioncd, Knut  Halslead suggested 'El Dorado,' and  that was the name determined upon. 1 make this point, as certain later  comers have claimed Lhj honor of naming tho creek. ���������     (  "Next morning Frod Bruceth got  up af five o'clock and went down after  McKay, whom the miners had appointed it's their recorder, letting out the  ���������news''oh the .way;.

Hearing' of , the. prospect, and knowing  that the Whipple Crowd had, staked  Bonanza also, Cobb stated emphatic-:  ally to Whipple that unless his crowd  took their names off Bonanza, ho would  jump their claims here. Just then  Anione, Clements, and Keller came up  to whero wo were talking, and Bruceth  and 1, who felt lhat though they had  tried to job us, yet Lhay really had  made the discovery, and wero entitled  to (he ground, tried out best to persuade them to go up 'and cut off their  names, or they would lose their El  Dorado claims ��������� they certainly could  not hold both.

The  miners who knew have always given  Hendeison the ciedit that is due him.  "Siwash George would be fishing yet  at Lhe m^uth of the Klondike if it  hadn't been for Bob Hendeison," is  what  one may hear.  Fiom the moment Lhe discovery on  Bonanza was "known at Forty Mile,  even Lhe most tiusLworthy tenoit of  Mr. Ogilvie, who was making the survey of tho bouudaiy, left Hendeison  enluoly out. Reason wjs obvious���������  nothing was told about Henderson. BuL  m a recent breech in Vn;tona, Mr.  Ogihie usud these words:  'The Klondike was j>rospooted for  forty m.les up in 1887, without any-  -dhuiig, beuijj, fD.und., and. again in lB'Ji>,  with a similar lack of result; but the  difference is seen when the right  course is taken, and Lh-Ls .was led uj>  bo by Robert Henderson. .This man  is a born prospector, and you could not  porsuade hc'xn to stay on even the richest claim on Bonanza. Ho started up  in a small boat to spend, this summer  and winter on Stowart ffciver prospecting. ��������� This is the stuff the true prospector is. made'of, and I am proud to  say to is a Canadian.  i. Henderson himself 'sums it up in a  letter that is almost pathetic: "That  is'all' I have got'ufter. two and a half  3'ears' prospecting, living on meat  straight.  HOW EL DORADO CAME TO BE  :  STAKED AND NAMED.  /The large fork spoken of before, came  into Bonanza1 at No. 7 abore Discovery,  but . none of the side gulches���������or  'i>uj\b," as tiitey were called���������-were fay-  wm! Jjy *ie stampeders until Bonanza]  a brush shelter. That night two men  Antone, his full noma is Antone Standard, an Austrian, and Frank Keller,  whom we had seen before on the Yukon, came to our camp, and'sa,t) for  an hour and a ha/lf talking. Antone  Lold. us their camp was further up���������on  upper Bonanza, we; inferred. They  said they had found ten cents to the  I>an on upper Bonanza, and they advised us to try there. ,--.    .. 'y  "Next morning we took our packs,  and with two others, Knut Haistead  and John Ericson, two Norwegians,  prospected along till we got into the  ifO's. There we left ^everything but  picks, shovels, ana pans, and went up  into the 70's, a distance of rather more  than seven miles from Discovery. We  j>rospected as we went, but found nothing. The boys aigreed in declaring  that, if the ground, had not been already staked they-.would not take the  trouble to do so themselves. We returned to camp, and decided that we  would prospect Lhe large 'pup' that  came.in just above on No. 7. Our attention had been drawn to this 'pup'  before we got to Discovery, on the day  of our arrival, by meeting two men  GOING DOWN THE CREEK,     y  "They were of a party of four  Miller Creek men. We had asked  th(.m, "How's the creek? '      ,  went above Empkins and Demars, 7 and  8, and staked 10.. Bruceth and I  went on far enough to be out of the  way of a clash, and slaked, he taking  11, and I 12. *  "Regarding Lhe discovery, it was the  custom! in tho lower country ��������� not  only on the American side, but within  Canadian territory���������to allow a discovery, consequently a double claim, upon  each gulch. But the edict had recently gone forth from Forty Milo  that there could be but one discovery  on a creek, and none on a 'pup' of a  main creek. The discovery had been  allowed to Siwash George, so that  there could be no discovery claim on  EI Dorado.  "Another custom was that if a person, after having staked in one place,  wished to locate in another, he must  before he could hold the second, cut  his, name off the other stake3.

A wonderful change seems to have  taken place in the temper of European  diplomacy. A year ago the great powers were suspicious and resentful, and  .were trying to overreach ono another in China", Africa and Constantinople. The European cabinets were  whispering-galleries of intrigue. Tho  arsenals and dockyards were bustling  with preparalions for war. .This irri-  Lable condition has subsided. Good  humor now prevails. The governments find it easy to make satisfaolory  agreements with one another respecting their colonial frontiers and spheres  of influence.  The concert in the near East, which  was sadly out of tune a year ago, is  now harmonious. .Crete has been released from Turkish "rule, and is pacified. Greece is recovering from tho  disastrous war with Turkey. The sultan is again under disoii>line. Tho  Eastern Question, which menaced the  peace of Europe a short time ago, is  no longer a disturbing element in diplomacy.  Within a few months England has  come to terms with, throe rivals. An  arrangement has been made with Germany resx>ecting tho African dependencies of the two powers, i Tho Niger  and Fashoda agreements with France  have marked out rival spheres of influence in West and Central Africa,  and while British rule in Egypt still  excites jealousy in Paris, the relations  of the two countries have greatly improved. With Russia a railway convention has been concluded, and a way  opened for a'general adjustment of  rival interests in China.  A year ago there were successive  raids upon Chinese ��������� territory. One  power after another seized strongholds  on the coast, and all signs pointed-Lo  a greal European war inl Lhe near future over that helpless empire. The  maritime nations now seem to understand one another, and it is safe Lo  forecast the ultimate partition of  China into clearly defined spheres of  European   interest.  What has caused this change of temper in European diplomacy 1 It is  due. in large measure to the weakening  of the bonds of the Russian-French alliance, which was the chief disturbing  force  in Europe.  The rescrii>t in favor of disarmament and a peace.oonferenre shattered  French illusions, and brought all the  greal powers into congenial relations.  IL puL an end Lo all talk about a  war for Lhe reconquesl of Alsace-Lorraine, and a coalilion for Lhe expulsion of Lhe English garrison from  tigyjjt. It left Lho powers at liberty  to adjust tho Cretan question, and to  come to amicable agreements over  their spheres of action in Africa and  tho far East.  European affairs have been well ordered for the Parliament of Peace at  The  Hague.  -yiiiptoms or Ai>i>cii<llcl(lh���������The Wny They  Wore Ueilevcd-TUc SuBcrcr Now W������ll  ami Working Kvery ������uy.  From tho Chronicle, Ingersoll, Ont.     '  In February, 1898, Mr. It. A. Size,  was taken very ill, and was confined  to his homo for several weeks. We  hoard that he was to go to tho hospital  to have an operation performed, but  the operation never took place, and am  be has started to work again and in  apparently good health, we investigated the case and found that he has  boon using Dr. Williaans' Pink Pills for  Fale People. Mr. Size is a highly ro-  spectod citizen of Ingersoll, having  resided here for over thirty yoars, and  has been a faithful employee at Messrs.  Partlo & Son's flouring mills for ovor  nineteen years. When asked by a  Chronicle reporter whether he would'  giv.B an interview for publication,  telling the nature of hia disease and  his cure,, he readily ��������� consented. Mr.  Size gave tho details of his illness and  euro as follows :���������  " In February I caught a heavy colol  which seemed to settle iu my loft side.  Tho doctor thought it waa neuralgia of  the nerves.   IL romainod there for some  timo and then moved to my right side,  in the region of the appendix. We applied everything,  and had  fly-blisters  on for 48 hours. They never oven caused a blister and did tho pain no good.  The   doctors canio  to   the    conclusion  that   tho  appendix was   diseased   and '  would have  to be  removed.   The pain  was very groat at times, and there waa  such a stiffness in my ankles, also in  my liand, and pain all over my body.  The day. and date was sot for an* operation, and I was reconciled to it. About  a week before I was to go to the hospital my wife was reading tho Chronicle.   She  road an account of a    man  who had been cured by tho use of Dr.  William-' Pink Pills. The symptoms of  the  disease wero so    much  liKe mina  that she became   interested and wanted me to give ihe pills a trial.   I had  little   faith   in   the   pills   but    as  my  wife seemed to be anxious that I should  take 'them,  I consented.  The   day   for  tho operation had now arrived,  and I  told the doctors that I did not  think  I would go to tho hospital for awhile  as   I was  feeling better.    I continued  the   pills,   and was   greatly  surprised  and pleased with the  result.   I    continued to improve, and have long sines  given  up    all  idea   of    an   operation.  When  I started    to  use   the   pills,   I  was unable to walk, and suffered something awful with Lhe pain in my slda.  It was just five weeks from tho lim������  that  I started  the  use   of    the   pills,  until I was able to walk again and 1  bad been doctoring  three   months  bo-  fore   that,   and I have    boon   working  ever  since.   Altogether I   have  taken  sixteen hoxes of the pills,    and  they  have done me more good than all   ths  doctors'  medicine I ever took    in ' mj  life.   I have now every confidence   in  Dr.   Williams' Pink Pills    and    think  that they are the best medicine in th������  world    to-Jiay,.   Certainly    'h'ad it  not  been  for  them, I would have  had  to  go through the ordeal of an operation  and    perhaps    would    not  have  been  living   now.   I  hope   that   by  making  this    public  it    will be of benefit  to  others, as it was through onc^ of thos������  articles that I fir^l learned of 'the un������  equalled  qualities  of  the  pills.

According to a foreign exchange recent experiments carried out at the  macliijuj works of Offenbach, show that  with the proper appliances it is possible to stop even a fly wheel within  a fraction of a second. By means of  two brakes affixed to the fly wheel  of 150 horse power, making SO revolutions per miriuts,' the "whole of the.  machinery was brought to a standstill  in. less -than a second after the fly  wheel had accomplished <one quarter of  a revolution."

Statistics   from   Vallum Countries of   IU4  Condition or i:<lucullou.  Statistics of illiteracy are sought in  Continental nations of Europe in ths  case of soldiers' recruited for service in  thj aiiny. Among German recruits,  for instance, the percentage of illiteracy is 1.1. Of l.COO" recruits, 989 can  read and write, 11 cannot, i In Switzerland, the percentage of illiteracy U  one-half of 1 per cent,; in France it is  5 1-2 per cent.; in Holland it is a liltle  less���������15.10; in Belgium'it is 13.5;-iu Italy  it is 38; in Hungary it is 28, and in  Russia, it is 70. There are no authentic figures of an official or quusi-ol-  ficial character in Spain showing tho  illiteracy of army lecruits. Iu Spain  as in Great Britain iu the test of illiteracy is the record of marriages from  which it is seen that about Coper cent,  of, tbk*-. population of marriageable age  saeins to be illiterate.  According to 'hs last figures of those  signing inar.iagi! certificates in Scotland the ratio of illiteracy among  ihciin' was only 33 per thousand. In  England it was 58 and in Ireland it  was 170, but since then, of courso, the  general diffusion of education has  fui'ihsr reduced .thi figuies, making  thjoin approximate those of Geimany  and other countries of the Continent.  In Norway and Sweden the aimy percentage is nearly identical with thit  of Germany. In Denmark tho ia.n of  illiteracy among army reciuits is\eiy  little higher than it is in Swilzeiland,  and in Austria, German piovince3, the  ratio of illiteracy is very low In  some other parts of the Austrian  empire, however, Croatia, the Tirol  and Austrian-Poland, in.! ratio of  illiteracy is much higher, bringing it  up among, army recruits ge.uciali������ to  Vi per cent.

IA loaf of breac". 4,500 years,  old   was  found in the tomb of Mentuhotep, who  ,died in Egypt 2,500 B.C  It' is now in  tho Museum! of Berlin.  This loaf of cake or bread is dark  brown in color. -Inside are, many  large holes, c Probably this part of the  bread long since fell into dust, but  much of tho bread still remains in tho  shape of whole kernels and pieces of  grain. r Examination proves lhat the  bread was made of barley, and Lhe  grains were only rudely crushed and  aoL Bifted. This proves that barley  bread was ono of tho earliest  kinds made, and it was baked and covered with twigs and leaves of the sycamore tree.  1 The process of preparing the grain  for bread is to be gathered from a wall  inscription which has been discovered  at Thebes. It is a graphic, picture, of  the entire process. This picture shows  that at that early period even tho  hand mill was not yet invented. Tho  flour was, of course, far from  fine, and tho bread resulting! was of  Lho kind found in Lhq tamibs. i It was  not- baked in ovens, but after being  kneaded into dough, by the addition of  water was placed between two heated stones, or was put on\ a plate and  laid upon tho redho.t coals.   , ;  WOMEN PROPOSE ?

' But when you stop and quietly go ovor  the question you will find that in  many instances woman has taken" tho  initiative���������not in words, perhaps, but  in cleverly devised plots and by just  helping somo bashful lover along.  Is not the wooing of Priscilla a good  example?   Did  she  not  propose when  ���������she  said,  "Why  not    speak for yourself, John?"  ���������  ' Experienced devotees of the fair sex  say tho widows are'' more expert at  proposing marriage than the debutante  or reasonably- up-to-date girl. But  the widow is a hard proposition to  cope with. Sho feels it imminently  her privilege to "coo" over a man, say  sweet things to him, tell him he is tho  sweetest thing iu town and make him  so absolutely comfortable that he  ' dreads renewed acquaintance with his  bachelor apartmenLs. But the widow  is dangerous. She knows how to manage a man with skilful tact. If sho  decides to marry him sho will and ho  is helpless.  More desirable bachelors have been  made benedicts through Lhe influence  of an after dinner cigar, shaded lamps  and a grate fire than books ever tell  of���������a case of cause and effect.
