 ���������.'/    LW-  ���������  r-\ /K"V  X_,  VOL 2.      NO. 47.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 1899  'A,Valuable Property Situated  the Town,"  Hear  Mr. Warner, in charge, has just com-  J pleted a map nnd report on the Madi  son group that are interesting in them  ! selves.   The property lies just south of  1 the Last Chance and the Noble Five,  and is crossed at the lower end  by the  ICody branch of the K. &S. R'y.   It is,  therefore, most conveniently situated  ���������for shipping.     The group consists of  the   Great Eastern, Madison,   Muroen  Fraction and Argenta claims   in  the  order named commencing on the summit.   It is  known to possess the Ar-  igentalead, on which ore of excellent  (quality is already found, and it is confidently believed crossed by  the Last  [Chance  and   Noble Five   leads   froni  (their   strike   on   the   mountain side.  L"he property is owned by J. C. Eaton,  Tlate of  tho Whitewater mine, and is  Jhnder lease by  the   Coin Mining Co  fwith  W. W. Warner, manager.   From  Uic strike of the three leads they can  all be tapped at a good depth   by' a  Ipross-cut tunnel from the K. ifcS. track,  thus making shipping an easy matter,  End at a very moderate cost. The  tvhole property can very readily be  Opened up nnd brought into excellent  Winning shape. ���������  One ear   ol'  ore   has already   been  Ihippcd, the second   is being sacked  gind raw-hided  and a������ the past winter  Jas been spent in development  wor!  ily, everything is   in readiness   for  feavy operations in the early spring  It is confidently expected that large  fcodies of high grade ore will be encountered in the Noble Five and Last'  %ance leads���������as good, at least, as is  jund higher up by tiie mines whence  !hey take their names, which is saying  !great deal. Tims, with such certain-  res of hidden wealth so easily got at,  fie property so easy to work and "ship-  ^rcg so convenient, to say nothing of  ;s proximity to the conveniences ofl  lie city, the Madison ought soon to |  'ink- high among Sainton's "already 'j  idely celebrated properties.  I resulted in  the location of the group  I of claims now owned  by the Cinnabar  Alining Co.   The  formation  in which  the cinnabar occurs  in this section of  the country consists of basaltic   and  dolomitic dykes traversed  by veins of  quartz and calcito in which the ore is  found   in some instances   in   a pure  state, also finely disseminated through  the gangue  associated   with   pyrites  and   other  foreign elements.     these  dykes and deposits have a general direction of N.N. W and S.S.E., through  what appears to be diabase porphyries,  but it is impossible  to determine tho  true nature owing to the. surface decomposition.     To   the   north   of the  company's properties cinnabar is also  found in altered conglomerates on the  Hardy   mountain   and   in   the    fine  grained granites on  the Caledonia; to  the oast   it is found   in line   scarlet  spots.   Associated with  the cinnabar  we also find copper sulphide and carbonates,  and on the Hardy mountain,  as aforementioned,   selenide of  mercury, which inrnriabty carries  a gold  and silver assay.   During my trips in  the ICamloops district last summer I  ���������  discovered a deposit of cinnabar some  l)rei?  15 miles south,  proving the southern   one  exfns'on of the belt, so that,  considering the   Criss creek deposits  to the  north,   we can state that the belt  litis  been   traced for 30 miles.     Notwitn-  standing the fact of the existence  of  large  bodies of  medium  furnace ore  0.5(5 percent, to 2 per cent, and over,  exposed   by the   development of the  Cinnabar Mining Company and other  deposits of high grade   ore   hitherto  untouched, they have not made a success.   It seems a pity that through the  fault, ignorance and gross mismanagement of the concern the whole (list ict  should  be hold  back in its  progress.  ���������Uiout $50,000 has been thrown away  in work and  the erection of a Granza  furnace, tram tvays, etc., and has only  produced  128 Jlasks of quicksilver; of  this   amount   121   was   produced   by  moans of cast iron retorts and seven  flasks by tho Gr.mza furnace.  pii iiniiis.

The Enterprise Deal.  depends lor its very  lite   more  upon its mines than on anything else,  both prospectors  and smelters  ought  to have some safe-guard  so that they  shall not be injured by wilful or ignorant, false statements as to the value of  their ore or other products.   It  may,  however, be necessary ,to appoint examiners in other parts of the province  than in Victoria only, as it would be a  very costly undertaking for any young  man, just starting in business, to have  to make the (rip to the Coast, in addition  to   the expenses and   fees   that  would   be   incurred during   his   stay  there.   But it is  entirely satisfactory  to find  that public attention has been  called   to this urgent necessity,   and  though   some   points    may    require  amendment or obliteration, yet in the  main it is a capital and most valuable  measure.     One  point   especially    is  noteworthy,   that   no   exemption   is  offered  to assayers   of  acknowledged  standing   and   in   actual   practice at  present, and   there are many of thorn  in British Columbia.   That omission  may po-sibly  be neutralized   by some  other bill, or portion of this one,  but  the matter can hardly lemain as it is.  And to quote an  old proverb :  "Quis  Custodet insos  eustodes?"���������who   will  examine, the examiners to see if thoy  themselves   arc   cnpablc?    However,  there is very little doubt that everything will eventually be arranged   to  the satisfaction  of all competent  assayers, and to the great advantage ol  those who employ their services.  Until the snow goes and packing  commences ore, shipments from the  mines without trams will be very  light. The trails arc orcaking up and  travel isgettiNg out of the question.  The  reports   about   the   Comstock  mine shutting down are false.    The  matter in dispute between the owners  and   Mitchell,   the concentrator contractor, has been satisfactorily settled.  It is said  that   Biggerstafl   Wilson,  i who put $12,000 into the Last Chance '  last year, is now drawing   $3,000, per  month on his investment.   That ought  to be good enough.   The B. A. C. are  not getting quite that out of the Lc  Roi.  The LeRoi now represents a capital  of 1-5,000,000; the Payne is capitalized .  at ������2,500,000. The LeRoi wiil, therefore, have to show double the profits  of the Payne to declare tho same  dividends, and, so far, it has shown  less.  Win. Harrington, of Sandon, came  up from the O'et'i'hero Eli group on  'Ion Mile, yesterday. Ho states that  tho letscea are doing good work and  are getting out large quantities oi' ore,  which-will be shipped hi. the spring.���������  Nelson Tribune.  DREADFULLY  NERVOUS.

ISIS tViWlflfflnrYAU ittVWsWsWWWrViW  HOUSEHOLD, f  SUGGESTIONS TO HOUSEKEEPERS.  You oan make the nicest piece of  corned beef that was ever " corned"  tough and indigestible by cooking it  fast in water made to boil hard. If  you want it tender as it is possible  for it to be, let tho water come to  a boil, skim, and sot the kettle on  tho back of the stove, where the contents will simmer gently but constantly. .  ,  The easiest and handiest broomholder  Is the simplest. Two wire nails driven  Intc (he wall at the same height, with  the heads slightly leaning toward each  othor, aro ah thai is required. You  just slip the broomstick between (hem,  and the slight curve of the handlo at  the top prevents it from falling  through. i  Nearly every housekeeper knows how  ,to keep ham through the summer  months, by partially frying it and then  packing it in jars, filling them up with  melted lard. It enough of the lard is  melted every time meat is taken out,  and   returned   to   the jars,   to  keep  a  in  a quick oven.   Try  them,  they are  delicious,.  CABBAGE SALADS.  Mrs. Corey's cabbage salad calls for  a dressing made with one teaspoon  sugar, one-half teaspoon mustard,  dash cayenne papper and salt, and  eight tablespoons of vinegar, stirred  wilh one tablespoon of butter, melted over boiling water. Into this mix  two eggs well beaten. Stir the mixture in a dish over boiling water all  tho timo it is cooking, and cook as  thick as good cream. Set away to cool.  Cut (ho cabbage Into ihreds and add  the dressing just before serving.  Auburn Cabbage Salad is made as  follows: Over finely-chopped cabbage  ���������and tho purple cabbage can be used  if desired���������pour dressing made from  ono tablespoon mustard; ono tablespoon butter; rub togelher thoroughly and add ono tablespoon salt, one tablespoon sugar, three eggs well beaten, one cup of milk. Let this mixture  warm slightly, (hen add one cup of  vinegar, a little red pepper and let  the   mixture   come   to   a boil.  L  layer of lard an inch/ or so thick over  the top, the ham will keep perfectly.  Not every one, however, knows that  dried beef may be kept by wiping with  a damp cloth and then rubbing it  freely with powdered boraxi using  plenty of it in (ho cracks and seams,  Then tie it in flour sacks, tightly. Re-  ,peat the borax application once or  twice during the summer. The borax  does not injure flavor or quality in the  slightest   degree,  ' TH15 ART OF BASTING.  AH dressmakers baste a great deal.  Beginners are prone to do too little.  Basto all the seams of a skirt in one  direction,' prefe'rablyl from the top  down. In basting the front gores of  lining and outside together, baste di-  ectty down the centre, taking but  one stitch upon the needle at a time.  The edges of the front gore are then  basted from top to bottom, following  a straight line. In basting the back  and side gores, the line of basting  should follow, not tho grain of the  cloth.but extend in straight lines from  top to bottom just as for tho front  gore. The true direction of the basting  lice is determined by holding the gores  to the figure and noting how the folds  come���������they will always be straight  down. The basting should follow the  exact folds in which the skirt will fall  when  made up.  One half inch from tho odge of the  lining is a good idea when cutting to  rule a perfectly straight seam with a  pencil on this, edge of each goro. Later  on basto on these lines in even, true  stitches for the seams. Baste lengthwise, using a short anil long stitch  in basting. Baste up, and keep the  basting in line with skirt seams.  Where a bias and a selvedge edge  come together baste and stitch on the  selvedge edge. Be sure the top of the  skirt is kept even, and be very careful in, stitching not to stretch bias  seams ; always stitch one way���������either  from the top down, or from the bottom  up. ,       '���������-���������'-���������''..���������:'''-���������.'<:'  ���������  ATTIC RUBBISH.  A saving of attic rubbish year after  year is an unwarranted economy. So  many things are stowed away under  tho supposition that some day such  articles may be wanted or may ' be  utilized in some way. Many an attic  lot of put-away things' would dress  some child or family of little folks in  a very respectable manner and would  be so thankfully received. The better  economy for tho housewifo would be  to place them where immediate good  may bo derived from them, for in  such places they prove an economy indeed. ' ;  Is it economy to save rags for tho  rag man? Wo think not, and long  ago discontinued the practice. This  saving of rags was handed down from  one generation of housewives to another, no doubt. A rag bag is always  an unsightly thing, and it is almost  invariably soit to (ho garret or titora  room upstairs. Steps innumerable are  taken before the rag bags arc filled,  or before called for by tin- purchaser  of rags and the vender of cheap tin  ware and other cheap aud undesirable  goods. Aud there are better ways for  making use of all the rapes that accumulate about the house. When a  garment is cul up, after having served its days of usefulness as a garment,  the scraps and pieces are all put into  a hag or into a dee.n jar (lint is not  otherwise needed, and they aro kept  to wipe out greasy dishes, and to  clean    tea-kettles'   wilh,   and   to   wipe  i   You no* Folks.

The children were to meet  at the church at half-past eight. Will  Barslow hurried through his chores  that morning, too much excited to care  for breakfast.  This picnic was the event of the year.  There were always a number, of prizes  given for running, jumping, etc.,  and  Will  was one of (he champions.  By nine o'clock the conveyances were  filled with happy children and their  teachers, the provisions having a wagon  sot apart for their transportation, and  the village brass band leading the van.  Off they started, with noise of drum,  cornet,' clarionet, kettle-drum, etc,  flags flying, and loud cheers from the  children. A drive of eight miles  brought them to (he ' grove on the  lake ��������� popular resort,,       provided  with long tables, swings, pavilion,  sto. They entered the grounds wilh  a grand flourish of trumpets or rather  a rousing  piece by tho band.  The children scattered in every direction, while their ciders busied themselves preparing   the refreshments.  |When all was ready, the big drum  summoned all hands to dinner. After  singing, "Be present at Our Table,  Lord," they attacked the good things  with a will, cako, sandwiches, lemonade,  caudy, fruit, disappearing asitbymag-  oo, before the hungry youngsters. It  was delightful to dine in the open air,  protected from the sun's rays by the  spreading branches of the tall forest  trees, and listen, to tlie merry cha tier  of tho children, aud watch tho steamers and sailing vessels gliding by on  the blue -waters of the lake.  .When dinner was over, the business  of the day began in earnest, First, there  were races for the little ones, five years  and under. This afforded a great  deal of amusement. One little tot toddled along bravely long after the rest  girls' races, boys' races, jumping  had reached their goal. There wero  matches, etc.  "Say, Will, there is a prize of two  dollars offered for the one who wins  tho hundred yard race, twelve years  and under. Jack Martin is going in lor  it.   He's awful anxious about it. Guess  he wants the rnonpy pretty bad. Tho  resL of the fellows don't'count but Jack  is a tip-lop runuer.

Thia  lo your audience a couple of physicians  impersonated by your best actors. You  may introduce any by-play between  your doctors wish you wish. Set your  people to guessing by announcing that  the word is a common noun of three  syllables. If the word is a difficult one  to guess, it is better to give its definition also. I  ���������A good word for a charade is the  word charade itself. I recently saw it  played with great success. As played,  it, was, of course, shay raid. The players built a "shay," with chairs and  the dining table and rode merrily (hereon to tho great amusement of the audience. The second syllable was played separately, and was done by ��������� the  players rushing up upon us, their unsuspecting listeners, and carrying off  some of our numbers by sheer force.  Proper nouns often make good charades. One ot the best, perhaps, is Fulton. This may bo acted in a very funny way by giving an exhibition of human curiosities, your curiosities consisting of fat people. It heightens the  absurdity to select tho thinnest people present for your curiosilies._Placo  the curiosities in a row as in a museum, and after calling attention lo  their remarkable weight, as if to prove  your statements, send for scales and  weigh each one. You should give to  each some extremely extravagant  weight, beginning1 at, say, four hundred, and fifteen pounds and gradually increasing your figures until the  combined weight of your curiosities  reach   2,210   pounds,-  or  one   ton.  Titles of books, societies, plays, etc.,  may be������used as charades. I have seen  " Royal Arcanum" played very successfully. The title suggests royal, arc.  can cane 'em. It was played thus: A  throne was prepared, and a king sat  on if with a wand, which was really a  cane, in his hand. He was surrounded by attendants, aud at "a given signal, they all shouted the syllable " are,"  when (he monarch used his cane freely  on their backs, and all ran howling  away. In playing charades, if is well  for all present to divide into rivaf  camps,   playing   alternately.  The following are good words for  charades, and your own ingenuity will  suggest ways of playing them: Adherent, add he rent, teetotaler, tea too  tailor; uniformity, you'n 1 firm a "I:"  ingratiate, in gray she ate ; gruesome  grew some ; metaphysician, met a physician ; miscontrue, miss con strew; adhesive, arid he seivo ; tenable, ten able;  manicure, man I cure ; catamount, cat  a mount; innocent, inn no scent; champaign,    sham pain ; caution, caw shun.  ^W/iYsVtVm>WiWiM(YtW kWsWsWt'sWsYkVsWftg  iAgrf  THU  TAILOR-MADE  GIRL.'

There is no part of ihe spring house-  cleaning that is more important than  the proper care of winter clothing and  renovating the closets, and this is  usually done before the rooms aro disturbed. Many people are fortunatein  having a small room that is a general^  receptacle for various kinds of storage;?  and is supplied' with doors aud windows for light and ventilation. Choose  a bright warm day for cleaning them,  remove every thing from the room,  clean the shelves and mop the floor.  The latter should be painted or covered with oil cloth or matting, but  never W'ith a woolen;carpet. Then after drying, the store room will be  ready to put things in.  Heavy draperies should be'thoroughly dusted and hung on the line to air  before putting them away. Choose a  large box so they will not have to be  folded often, and lay them in it carefully. Fasten the lid securely to  keep the dust out, and label the box  so there will be no .trouble in finding  them when they, are wanted again.  Blankets should be thoroughly washed'  before they are put away, for to fail  to do this would lie to invite moths.  Prepare a hot suds, put a little borax  talk put Will on his mettle. He bated  to be beaten above all things; he cared  more for (hat than tha money.  When they were . rcparing for (he  r,;cB, he noticed J;:ck's eager, excited  face, and suddenly remembered something he had heard his mother say that  very morning about how hard up the  Marlins were. Mr. Martin had been ill  for some time, and Mrs. Martin herself  was poorly. Jack had done nobly for  so young a boy. He earned what he  could, they needed all' they could get,  and they were not the! kind of people  to whom ono would like to offer charity.  There was a struggle in Will's heart,  sharp but short. His better nature triumphed. His Sunday school teacher had  asked her class to choose a motto for the  year, and thoy had selected. "For His  Sake." Here was an opportunity to do  an unselfish act "foil His sake." Ho  knew he could easily distance Jack, but  he did not want, to drop out after entering the list: While :he was think-'  ing about it, the signal was given and  they wero off. The way was lined  with cheering. hallooing children;  shouting encouragement to their favorites. ��������� '  ' "Go it, Dick! Hurry up, old fellow or  you'll get left!" "Will's ahead! "No,  he isn't!" "Yes, he' is' etc ;  "I tell you,. Jack Martin's in! Hurrah for Jack! Will Barstow's left this  time, for. surd"   ���������  It was a fact. Will kept ahead until  the goal was nearly reached,, then slackened almost imperceptibly; letting Jack  go in just beforo him..  In spite of the condolences and disappointed ejaculations of his friends. Will  felt happy. He had won after all. but  tho victory was over self, the grandest  of all victories. It1' was genuine pleasure   to look at Jack's bright face, and  -    ., ,       ...   ,. ., :, ,.      . know he would receive the much needed,  in it and with the aid of a washing \moiiey.

SIGN OF GOOD HEALTH.  Rapid growth' of the  finger  nails  is  considered   to  indicate good health.  Will only smiled and said nothing,  repeating in his heart these words  "For His Sake."  EVENiNG AMUSEMENTS.  Ono of the pleasantest ways of spending an evening is in'playing charades.  A Uttle keen wit, and a slight talent  for acting, will make this one of, (he  most agreeable of amusements, .writes  Helen F. Clark. In selecting words to  be played it must be borne in mind that  a true charade is, first of all, a pun.  That is to say, your word must be capable of being divided into syllables,  upon which puns may be made, or it  must have that quality-as a whole, and  it is the pun which must be acted.;  To make this clear, I will illustrate it.'  Suppose that you wish, to play the  word paradox, the pun is pair of doc's;  to  scorn an assertion that the tailor  made girl has quite as many tantalizing things to contend with in dressing herself for that "simple smartness" characterizing her, as he himself  has in arranging his own faultless lin-  en|.| He doesn't dream how well  groomed femininity has many times a  week to suppress-wrath akin to that  which so freely bubbles between his  own lips becaase of the same aggravating caprices of an inoffensive looking collar button. It never enters  his mind that tho fetching Ascot has  perhaps caused her to storm up and  down before her mirrors, calling, on  the,gods to come down and help her  tie the thing. He knows well enough  tho myriad offences of his own nock-  gear and. the wa'ath with winch.'' he-  has iiounced upon his laundry king,  but tho shy little thinjg at his side  ,���������why, of course, she does not know  what trouble is. .���������-.-.���������  The tailor made girl has to avoid  the least suggestion of "fluffiness."  Her hair should not look fluffy, nor  the feathers on herhat. Her "shirt  waist is hopeless if not thoroughly  severe;' and her tie must receive just  the right twist.  Wty have knolwh a girl; to spend a  solid, hour wrestling desperately with  stiff collars that' simply refused to  button,- first one and. then another.  Her arms ached, and her neck was  scratched with the trying. When, at  last, a tractable buttonhole was dis-;  covered the tiny gold button disappeared and. she thought -it had rolled under the rug or behind the cosey corner. Then a search- for that began,  fior it happened^ that she had ho other  button-.r It was simply, that one or  none. ��������� ���������' '..'���������' ;    .''..  We shall not dwiell upon the' detail  of that search, but the button was discovered   at   last   in   a  hat   box.  What tailor made girl has not stood  before her mirror hopelessly . entangled in the meshes of an Ascot tie���������  that simple little string that persists in twisting itself into an "old  maid's knot," or .wriggling; the Wrong  side  out?  Tho tailor made girl's boot string,  takes advantage of her dependence  upon it, and breaks just as she is  making a hurried toilet. Not another  pair to her name, and just twenty  miniutes  to   keep  her   engagement!  Her hair positively ' refuses sometimes to part straight, and one persistent tress makes her a half hour late  at  the  play.  A button deliberately flies off her  coat as she starts for the door, or she  will find a most deplorable dent in  her hat crown. It is Wholly inexplicable, but'iUs there.  ^ffffffwm������MWffmimNmmfWfmm  HARDY     FRENCH     CANADIAN  CATTLE.  Very early in the history of America,  some lime beforo 10(15, a number of  small black or brown cattle were introduced into what are now the Canadian provinces, writes J. A. Couture,  of Quebec. They ca^no from France*  and wore strictly dairy animals, resembling the Jerseys in a general way.  These cattle were not allowed to cross '  with other breeds, and for over 21)11  years were kept very pure and took  the name of French Canadian. They  became quite numerous, being peculiarly adapted to conditions in Cauiida.  In 2D counties in Quebec practically  no other cattle are kept. They aro  the easiest kopt of all breods of cattle, and also the hardiest. They are  free from tuberculosis. Their teats  are large, consequently they are easily milked. In color, thoy are solid  black, or black with yellow strip on  back and around muzzle, or brown  with  black points, or solid  fawn.  As milkers they aro the best cows  ot any of the breeds in Canada for  the average farmer, (They will not-  give the large quantities of milk  yielded by the Holsteins or even somo  Ayrshires in ono day, or one week,  but they will give a good quantity,  daily from calf to calf, and the total  for the year will be surprising, usually largor than that given by other  breeds. The difference in their favoi  will bo still ruoro e\ ident who'll thf  cost  of keeping is considered.  When the little Canadian cow is  properly fed she repays well for tha  trbublo and expense, as proved by lh������  following result obtained from the  cow Pi umere 1712, ihe property of tha  Hospital du Sacri-Coeur, Quebec. Sho  calved on the 28lh of August, 18H2,  when four years old, and was milked  until July Ib'jB, being duo"lo calva  again on the 31st of ihe same month,  During these 31d days she gave 11,31(1.  lbs. of milk, or a daily average of J5  lbs. She weighs about G75 lbs. -Her  daily food con.sl.hled of cut hay 10 11)3,  cul straw 5 lbs, ensilage '20 lbs, bran  2 lbs, cottonseed and meal '2 lbs. Thia  is mixed and fermented for 2-t hours  in advance. Sho was kept all this  time in the stable.- Tho cow Azilza  do Levis 95H gives 8.U0U lbs. of milk  a year on pasture aloue in summer,  and, on 13 lbs. of dry .hay and 1 lbs.  of grain, oats, bran and oil cake, daily ���������  in winter.  Let ma say that the French Cana*  dian cow that does not give (5,001) lbs.  of milk in the year, when she receives  reasonable care aud food, is not a  good cow. On common pasture and  dry hay and dry straw, with a handful of bran in winter, she oughl to  give from -1,51)0 to 5,000 lbs, of milla  in tho year. Is this milk of good  quality? Of course it is.

To detect hidden cracks opening  from the surface of metals, the surface  is first moistened with kerosene and  is then dried off with a cloth'. It is  then coated with chalk. After a little  while the oil works out: of the little  cracks  and   stains   the chalk.

If one  feels.as  though  she cannot afford  to  put the unrendered skins in the soap  grease,  she cau  place  the skins  in  a,  dripping  pun  and   render  the:    grease  from them in the oven.     Remove   all  lean meat from  the lard meat, every  litllo  strip, for  it likewise soaks    up  lard,    and    iuoreases    the , danger ot  scorching.    The lean scraps can be put  in   the  sausage  meat or  in  the  press  meat.  Cut  the lard meat, fine, put tho prepared meat in  the kettle over,a slowj  fire, with  enough    water  to    prevent  scorching while  it   begins  to    render.

When   the  lard   has all  been "ob- ',  tained, skim the    cracklings off   , the  top with a colander or similar utensil,  place them in a stout bag, hang oven  a pan and press.

Daring the recent visit of Queen  Victoria to Balmoral, says the Chronik  der Zeit, the Queen was taking a drive  with her grandsons, the young ^Princes  of Battenberg, when, nearing the  gates of the park, they beheld a bear  tamer with a huge animal standing in  the road, evidently waiting for the  approach of the royal carriage.  Persuaded by the children, the  carriage slopped and watched with  much pleasure the performance of the  bear. Sho sent the footman with a  sovereign to hand to tho tamor, who  refused to accept the money, and asked  if Her Majesty would condescend to  give him some sort of a nolo as a  proof that his bear had had tho distinguished honor of having danced  before tho gracious eyes of Her  Majesty.  The Queen hesitated to grant this  rather impudent request, but the  children prevailed upon her to accede  to the tamer's wish. -  "Why not "do it?" argued little  prince (Henry. '"Was there not a  horse made Consul in   Rome?"  "Well, tell me the name of the Emperor who committed such folly," said  the Queen, "and, the bear shall gain  recognition.'" .  , The Prince named Caligula without  .the  slightest  hesitation.  That same evening a letter bearing  the royal seal was delivered to the  bear tamer in which the titlo, "Boar  Loader of Her Majesty tho Queen of  England and Ireland, Empress ot India," was conferred upon the happiest  -\t animal teachers. <  " The Thorn Comes Forth  With Point Forward/'  The thorn point of disease  is an ache or pain.

On such a foundation. as  this the supposed maximum producing  limit of land is greatly extended,  and hitherto undreamt of yields be-*  come both possible and probable. I  have from time to time seen results  which have fairly set my hair on end,  and investigation has invariably disclosed a big reserve of humus well  seasoned with phosphate. For thia  top-dressing of the clovers the  Thomas-Phosphate seems perfectly  well adapted, i do not know how far the  lime of the phosphate may help, but  certain it is the.clovers respond more  luxuriantly to the Thomas-Phosxihato  than *to any other application.

Originally, colonized by Norwegians in 87-1,  it remained a republic till 1292, when  it became subject to the Norwegian  crown. Tn 1389 Norway and Denmark  were united, and when these two kingdoms separated, Iceland remained  Danish.  MENU-CARDS.,  \ The menu cards now. seen are generally made of china, on which the different courses can bo written. There  are very rarely more than four of  these placed, at a table, and sometimes  only one, which is put near the, host.  But it is not a fashion that meets with  universal approval. It savors too  much of the restaurant and a bill of  fare; Some are very cleverly got up  in the shape of a silver frame, into  which the written cards can be slipped  ���������something on the plan oft the perpetual calendar; but this is rather too  business-like to beint keeping with a  well-appointed social dinner table.

With the mines lookingas remark-  ably well, as they do, and eastern capital looking this way, it is-a pity that  anything should crop up now to disturb the bright prospects of the'corning season.

While  the people may be willing to waive  taxation of the property, they should  not be put to' any extra cost in any  respect through the construction and  operation of the works.  ,  no   more   conception   of   what   they  would have to endure going there and  living there than  an infant has of its  future.   I-Jundrr-ds of peuplc sold out  properties   and   prospects   on   which  they could have lived handsomely and  made money, at a  small preccntago oT  what they were worth, and, from best.  information, not more than 5 per cent.  of  those   who wont there held  their  own.   A few made money, as a I'ew are  bound to do no matter where they go,  or   under   what   circumstances   they  operate;  but the venture was disaster  for the masses.  More recently, again, the Atlin and  the Boundary countries aro drawing  attention, and the rush for those districts promises to be as great as was  that to tho Klondyke. No doubt there  is wealth in both districts; but the  wonder is that sensible men will leave  the reduction' of working hours. In  most countries custom or law regu  lates the number of hours in a day's  work, but ho one ever before heard of  a, penalty for not obeying such law.  In all other cases the only consequences were increased pay for overtime to tho employee, when the longer  hours were enforced.  A PHRENOLOGIST SPEAKS.  Prof. J.

That  . people should leave a district of conn-  try, where nothing was to be found, for  :',   thosCiparts, is reasonable enough.; but  that men who intend to follow mining  ���������    - should leave  the Slocan  for those distant regions  is next to incomprehensible.     It requires no  effort  to sh.j\v  ���������   that a new.country is no place- for a  lot, of men  who intend to follow their  daily labor, as it is. not  until proper-  - ties are opened up in them   that work  'presents itself lot many miners.   It is  equally   incomprehensible   that  men  . with a little1 means, searching for,properties, should turn  their backs on the  Slocan iii view of the-light of practical  results   in the country.     So   far. but  very few properties   have turned out  worthless, on which  the surface indications were favorable, after a reasonable'   expenditure    on   development.  Reward is   not  reached in 'them all  with   the same  expenditure...   Many  were abandoned   by. ihe   first owners  alter a little labor   was expended  on'  them, only to be found mostsatisfac-,  tory by succeeding efforts.  To sum it up, no ���������inhiing district  in  the known world has developed  more  paying properties for the same amount  ol money and labor expended on them  than the Slocan   in West Kootenay.  This can easily be shown, and carri'-s  all the argument with it necessary to  interest   the. judicious  spectator and  capitalist.     Business men   and  those  who   follow callings  to make  money  out   of   the   floating masses   will,  of  course, go with the crowds ;  but' why  crowds should   draw  either practical  miners,   investors   or speculators   is  simply" past"ordinary comprehension. ���������  To tho Hditor of The Mining Review?

Tli'6 action of the Legislature in  passing that eight-hour day enactment  has subjected that body to a great deal  of adverse criticism, and very properly so. A legislature is always justified in looking into the merits aud demerits of any suDJect that becomes a  live issue before the people. ,Tnfact  that is one of the principal'functions  of a parliament���������:to consider all subjects' agitated by the people, and pass  such measures  as will best serve, the  masses   without   encroaching on the  rights of minorities.   In this case con-.  tentnieht   was   apparently   prevalent  everywhere  wi.tii.the custom in force.  Then, on tho surface at least, as there  were no   differences   between owners  nnd: men.   there   was   no   justifiable  ground  ior government  interference.   tl^y  wiI1 jiud'wh'en it1 conies to.the  Tliere are plenty of, subjects   in this   (,ea(,     -  To the Editor of The Review:       ;  vDrar Sir,���������It seems"  that the  evil  wherewith tha   old council  was leavened hath also leavened the new in tho  matter,   of   the   flume   money    bylaw,  which they   are   submitting   to  the tax-payers.     A short   time ago.I  thought they were on the -right track  and were going to have  tho accounts  audited and. a  true and proper statement of. the expenses laid ���������,before  the  public.-,'���������This'.io even'promised   yet,  but why not submit it; to the public  before asking them to vote the money.?.  Are t'bey afraid of'ha.ving the wasteful'  extravagance* exposed?   It looks like  it, and they expectthe taxpayers to go  I it ' blind  and vote   the moae3r   first!  Then thoy will submit,the accounts to  an audit!!   Very business like indeed.  There   is   another very    important  matter, too, on which'they: have liad  one pretiy good lesson, i. e. interfering  with the bed 01 the creek, which they  have tried  to get tinkered .with recent  legislation, but not at unsatisfactory  'TO  CONSl/'AirriVES.

Again, this fluming the creek' certainly is a "local improvement" and  should be paid for as such. It is a fine  thing for a few citizens to have a good  road built to the'rear of their premises,  to have drainage, brought through  their premises, at the,public expense,  in which to dump their water closets  and other filth and refuse, and to have  the value of their land and premises  increased nearly double in value���������all  at the public's expense.

LOVE'S '  FLOWER GARDEN.  In Trove's Flower Garden there is the  full-blown rose of maided happiness and  the holy perfume of joyous motherhood  for every woman who takes proper care of  her health  in a womanly way.    For the  weak, sickly, nervous, despondent woman,  who suffers untold miseries in silence from  weakness and disease of the delicate organs  concerned  in, wifehood- and   motherhodd,  thereTare only thorns, and to her the perfume of motherhood is the aroma of death.  No woman is fitted for the responsibilities of wifehood andl the duties of motherhood who is a sufferer in this way.    Every  woman  may be strolls' and   healthy in a  womanly way, if she will.    It lies with herself.    She needs, in the first place, a little  knowledge of the reproductive physiology  of women.   This she can obtain by securing-and reading a cop3'.of Dr. Pierce's Common'.Sense.'Medical Adviser., ,.It contains  100S pages and over .���������500 illustrations.    It  tells all about all the ordinary ills of life,  and how to treat them.,   Several chapters  and illustrations are devoted to the'physical niake-up of women.     It tells how to  treat all the diseases peculiar to women.  It gives the names, addresses, photographs  and experiences of hundreds of women who  have been snatched from the verge of the  grave to live 'happyi healthy lives by'Dr.  Pierce's medicines.     This book site can  obtain free.    It used to cost $1.50, and over  seven hundred thousand copies were purchased by women at that price.    Over a  million women now own copies.

Their, escort did not halt, however,  but pushed on, followed by a great  crowd of Mormons, until they reached  a wagon which was conspicuous for its  great size and for the gatidiness and  smartness of its appearance. . Six  horses were yoked to it, whereas the  others were furnished with two, or, at  most,1 four apiece. Beside the driver  there sat a man who could not have  been more than thirty years of age,  but whose massive head and resolute  expression marked him as a leader.

With '!a cracking of whips and a  creaking of wheels the great wagon  got into, motion, and soon tho whole  caravan was winding along once more.  The elder to whoso care the two  waifs had been committed' led them to  his wagon, where a meal was already  awaiting them.  "You shall remain here," he said.

In the meantime, Ferrier, having recovered from his privations, distinguished himself as a useful guide  and an indefatigable hunter.   So rapidly did he gain  the esteem of his   new  companions,   that ,when   they  reached  the  end  of  their wanderings,  it   was  unanimously agreed that he should bo  provided with as large and as fertile  a tract of land as any of the settlers,  with the exception of Young, himself,  and of Stangerson, Kimball, Johnston  and Drebber, who wero tho four principal  elders. , ���������  On the farm thus acquired John Ferrier  built  himself -a substantial   log-  house,  which  received 'so  many  additions in succeeding years that it grow  into a roomy villa.

True, Mary had felt it, but she loved  him just the same. Nothing could  alter that. By and by, in that quiet  happy life that was to be theirs, she  would eease to think of it altogether,  but in any event sho would cling to  him, ho know, " God bless her l'- ho  said aloud to the akurrying tree tops  and tho stars as the train sped on.  " And the little one," he 'added, after  .a pause.  The little one. Ah, that was another  thing to consider. Sho should have  such advantages as she deserved, and  should be reared in tho sweet, gentle  fashion that is possible only where the  sordid conditions of daily world-fighting are not present. And she would  never know. ������ ���������  His mind unconsciously reverted to  the scenes of his former employment,  and he wondered if by any possibility  they had yet discovered the loss, and  smiled an immediate negative as he  .thought, that while if seemed ages ago  since he had crept into the safe which  held, for the ono night only, the enormous sum which had templed him,  it was in reality bub a few hours, and  they would not miss it until 9 o'clock  in the morning ,and it was now but  eleven at night.  For a moment he felt a pang of  something like shame as he thought  of tho incredulous surprise that would  be felt by tho President and Secretary of his company. Really they had  treated him nicely after all, viewed  from a strictly personal standpoint,  but his face hardened at once as he  again thought of the years of pinching, struggling poverty. No, it was  his own money after all.  His train of thought was interrupted by a" hand fumbling at (he curtains  of his berth, an ebony hand that reached in and unbuttoned the fastenings.  A moment later tho porter stood in the  opening,   a telegram   in  his  hand:  " Are you Mr. Sewell ?" the porter  demanded,  Yes, he was Mr. Sewell. He was surprised to find that he answered to his  . new name so easily and so readily, although his heart beat rapidly as the  possibilities couched in an en route  telegram for him flashed upon him,  but he,-was a man of action and hastily tore it open.  " Ethel is dangerously ill," it read,  " and calls for you every minute.  Mary."  The little one ! He was up and dressed and walking up and down in ihe  smoking compartment cursing vicious-,  ly in a few minutes. There was but  little struggle; only railing. He knew  at once that he would go back; that  nothing could keep him away, and he  knew, too, what would follow.  . At the next stop he got off and  paced the platform savagely for the  half hour in -which ho waited for the-  return train. Ho did not. take a sleeper for the return, there was not enough room to pace up and down as  there  was, in   the  smoker.-    A  youth  time ho allowed himself to think. It  must bo about lime for the officers  to come for him. No, he saw as he  pulled out his watch itt was only 8.30,  as yet and they did not know. He instinctively touched the���������pocket where  the treasure lay. What should he do  now ?  He felt an arm, steal round his neck  and Mary was leaning upon his shoulder,  with  her lips to his ear.  " Isn't there time yet to put it  back, John?" she asked, instinctively  recognizing his thought.  To put it back I Strangely enough  he had not thought of that. It was  an inspiration I He kissed her, and  hurriedly donning his hat and overcoat ran out to catch a passing car,  He timed its progress feverishly, and  saw that it would be full 9 o'clock  when lie got to tho office. Oh, well,  the.y might bo a little late, they usually  were. <  His heart fell as he turned the key  in the office door and found within  his two superiors gravely standing in  front of the open safe, and he realized  that it was all over. Without a word  he laid the package of bills down upon  his desk and stood before them, hollow  eyed  and  worn.  , " It was scarcely wiso for you to  assume the care of so largo an  amount," said the senior member of  the company, as he replaced the bills  in tho safe with a sigh of relief. " No  one knew it was here besides our.' elves.'  " You are mistaken," said the man,  in' a dead tone, "I stole it."  They looked at him a moment in  serious amazement, and then ihe senior member, after a momont of thought  requested him gravely to step into the  back room for a moment to wait while  they discussed Ihe matter between  themselves.  It was a full half hour before, they  called'him out again, and even then  there was no officer present, as ho  imagined there would be. Instead, the  President  handed  him a check,  " You have been wit h us for .years,  and you aro overworked," he said in a  kindly tone he had never used before,  " And you need a vacation ? Take it,  and when you return we will have a  settlement. We have been laying aside  a royalty in stock for you for years,  but perhaps we hold it back (oo long.  Tho package you took vra.il only paper,  by the way. The real one is in a drawer  in  my  desk."  The' man stood dazed for a moment,  and-.then wrung (ho President's outstretched hand wilh a spasmodic'grip  and   started  for  tho  door.  " Whe7'o are you going?" asked the  President.  " To tell Mary," replied the man  through   his   tears.  9^^/&q/9j/^q/&-  ~^^/9/9>9  W j he Home  CHINESE ETIQUETTE.  or  The    Itu'Clitiis   Hake,   I'mllicr   Slinl.r  Oriental IVciillarltlc.H.  The    Russians    have    been'   making  something of a study of Chinese manners   and   etiquette  and   their  periodicals   aro   reporting    what   has    been  learned.   The   latest   number  of  Rus-  sskii Viestnik says it is not surprising  that  (he Celestials consider Europeans  barbarians when  thoy seo continually  what  they consider bad manners   and  breaches  of  etiquette  on  the part  of  white men.   Tho proper thing, according to the Chinese notion, is diametrically   opposed   to   tho   European   idea.  For instance, when a Chinese welcomes  a visitor to his house, he does not remove   hi������  hat,  if he happens  to  have  it   on.    He   puts  his  hat  on   if  he   is  caught  without it.   The seat of honor  at  the table is at the loft of the host.  It  would  be considered an. offence if  the   guest   inquired  about   the  health  of the hostess, or, still worse, expressed   a desire   to   be  presenlled  to   her.  A   Chinese   takes  offence  if  told   that  ho looks younger than he is.   Tho older  tho man the more ho is respected,  independently   of   his    qualities,   and,  therefore,  a Chtneso wishes to appear  older  than ho really is.    He willingly  forgives many offences, but should any  one   happen   to   tread  on. his  foot  he  will refuse to accept the most humble  apologies.   When  a son  dies in a Chinese-family   the bereaved father  considers  it  proper  co show strangers  a  smiling  countenance,  no matter what  his sufferings may bo.  The Russian newspaper asserts that  there is a Minister of Etiquette in  China known as Li-pu. Ancient books  on manners are accepted by him as  authority. 'The books include 200 vol-  uiries. ^Some of tho rules are Draconian in their severity. A Chinese cau-  not even build a house according to  his taste. No matter how rich he is,  it is not proper for him to build ir  finer or a higher house than that of  his   neighbour,   if   tho   latter   happens  to be . of superior rank socially. In  with a penchant for getting acquaint- ! Chinese etiquette there are eight var-  ed, observed that ho was nervous, and | ioties of the bow, Ignorance of Chinese  ideas of propriety with regard to the  bow has often caused embarrassment.  A Chinese, displeased with his, situation, will not tell his employer Ihe  real reason for resigning, but will give  poor health or the death of a relative  Such things  CHOICE BJECTPES.  Stuffed Rolls.���������Scald one cup of  milk and add two level tablespoons of  butter. When lukewarm add one  level teaspoonful of salt, one yeast  cake dissolved in two tablespoons of  lukewarm water and one one-half  cups of flour. Let it rise and add  flour to knead, taking care not to use  too much. Toss on to a floured board,  pat and roll out one-third of an inch  thick. Shape into small rounds with  a biscuit cutter, arrange on a buttered shoot three-quarters of an inch  apart, let rise, brush over with the  white or the yolk of an egg and bake  in a moderate over. Tho roils should  not be allowed to rise in too warm a  place, as they would spread out and  not keep in good shape. When ready  to serve remove tho tops and centors  and fill-with chioken salad, replacing  the tops. Theso rolls should not be  larger than would mako three bites.  Sandwiches.���������Close grained bread is  best for sandwiches, and it must bo  cut in very thin slices. If the right  kind of bread is not used the sandwiches will not be a success. The  crusts should always be removed, and  upon the filling depends whether  white, whole wheat, ,.brown or rye  bread is to be used. Sandwich cutters of fancy shapes may be bought  at house lurnishing store's, and for  card parties tho hearts, diamonds,  spades and clubs are used.- Sandwiches are kept moist by wrapping  them in paraffine paper or in a napkin or piece of cheese cloth which  has been wrung out of hot water,  A particularly new'sandwich is made  by putting two oysters fried in butter between two slioos of bread with  a ieattuco leaf.  Windsor Sandwiches.��������� Cream one-  third of a cup of butler, using a small  wooden spoon or a silver fork. Add  half a cup , each of finely chopped  ham and the white meat of chioken,  or vary the proportion of chicken and  ham to suit the taste. Season with  salt and paprika. Spread the mixture  on thin slices of while bread, cut in  any shape desired, and place a small  lettuce leaf which has been washed  and thoroughly drained in each sandwich, letting the lel.tuoe leaf show at  the sides of the bread. Tho lettuce  may be omitted if preferred.  To keep lettuce fresh, a good way is  lo separate the lettuce leaves, sprinkle  with water, and put in a dargo tin  pail, covering closely. Or it may bo  wrapped in ti damp cheese cloth, and  kept in tho same way as recommended for parsley on previous occasions.  Marguerites.���������Beat two eggs slightly, add one cup of rather dark brown  sugar, half a cup of pastry flour, quarter of "a teaspoon of baking powder,  one-third teaspoon of salt and one cup  of pecan meats broken in small  pieces. Bake in small fluted tins,  decorating each with a half nut. A  moderate oven is best for baking  these, hotter than for sponge cake,  but not so hot as for a layer cake or  small cakes usually. Tho time ��������� required will be from ten to twelve minutes. .This recipe gives about thirty  little cakes. Care should be taken  when removing them from the pan,  and they will come out a little easier  if allowed to stand awhile. They  should be covered before they are  thoroughly cold so that they will keep  tender and not get crisp. Pecan nut  meals may be. purchased by the  pound from dealers in confectioners'  supplies. "  Almonds.���������Mix one cup of brown  sugar with quarter of a cup of water.  sBoil one minute, add half a cup of  blanched Jordan almonds and stir until the nuts are brown. Drop on an  oiled or buttered dish to cool. The almonds are blanched by pouring boiling water over them, allowing them  to stand     a    moment,  lemons and owing to their thicker  rind, Malaga lemons are the best for  this purpose. In cutting off the chips  the cutter should exercise care not to  take any of the white part of the  rind.' Put them to soak in a brine  made by mixing half a cupful ef salt  in two cupfuls of cold water, ��������� and  when they have soaked 24 hours,  drain and put them in clear cold  water, and let boil for one hour; then  drain and cover thorn again with cold  water, and let them boil an,hour longer. If tender, drain and weigh them;  and to every pound allow a pound of  sugar.  Make next a syrup with a pint of  cold water and the juice of two lemons to every two pounds sugar. Let  this syrup cook ton minutes then strain  over chips, having first arranged  them nicely in a small stone jar.  Leave them for two days, then strain  off the syrup, add about a quarter of  a pound more of sugar to every  pound used before, and, having boiled  the syrup down until it is quit������ thick,  pour it over the chips again. Repeal  this process, adding another quarter  of a pound of sugar, for every pound  and a quarter previously used, boiling  it nearly to a-candy this time before  you pour it over tho chips.  ' Out of this syrup drain the chips.  Then clarify the syrup, and if there  is danger of its turning into candy,  add a little more water or lemon juice.  Put the chips back and boil them until a drop of the syrup rolled in the  fingers, which have been dipped for  tho purpose in ice water, forms a  creamy ball. This sta.ge attained,  stir the chips in the syrup, after cooling them in it for a few minutes. Remember not to let the syrup get cold  further than to be still warm and  flexible, when the chips are stirred;  and bo suro to stir them well, for  then they will separate, and when  (his occurs they should be laid on a  warm shelf to dry thoroughly, a half  cupful of dry sugar sometimes assisting tho work. They then "form most  excellent dainties���������just the things  with which .to "treat" company.  Sweet orange peel prepared in (ho  same_ way is equally good.  PLANS A GREAT RAILROAD.  Cecil   Rhodes   Would Connect  Cave   Town  and Cairo l>j a JSr!tU!i-i:<o pllan Line.  Mr. Cecir Rhodes, known throughout  the civilized" world -as a speculator of  stupendous ideas, has again indulged  in a sort of day dream. He has sprung  on the British and South African publics many startling schemes, some of  which, as his bank account would  doubtless show, have been surprisingly successful. He now comes to the  front, however, wilh a project so far  surpassing all of his previous games  thai with Ihe possible exception of the  plans of the De Lesseps, it may be said  to be without a parallel in latter day  engineering. It is no less than to  build a line of railroad from Cape Town  to  Cairo. ,  China's Dowager Empress    a  Dr. Morrison, the Pekin 'correspondent of the London Times, thus describes the recent interview between  the Dowuger-Empress of China and the  ladies of the diploma tio body in Pekin:  After numerous difficulties and delays, due in great measure to the  question of interpreters, the promised  reception of the ladies of the diplomatic body by the Dowager-Empress  look place at the palace yesterday. The  event was a noteworthy innovation,  and it is only fair to Lady Mao-  Donald, wife of the British Minister*  lo state that it was sho who was chiefly instrumental in arranging, the preliminaries of a ceremony calculated to,  destroy many of the barriers which  have heretofore excluded Europeans  from intercourse with the . imperial  court.  Tho. wives of the seven foreign Ministers assembled at the British Legation and proceeded together to the  palace, the route they followed being  kept clear by the police. At tho entrance to the precincts of the palace  they were met by a group of gorgeously apparelled mandarins. Leaving  their own chairs, tho ladies were conducted in palace chairs to the electric  tramway and conveyed lo the great  hall, where sLood a number of ladies  of Iho court, who had been deputed to  escort them to the audience chamber.  Hero the Dowager-Empress was seated  on a daia behind a small table decorated  with chrysanthemums and apples, tho  Emperor being seated on Her Majesty's  left.  Tho ladies of tho diplomatic body  ranged themselves in front of tho dais,  and Lady Macftonald, as (heir doyenne,  stepping forward, read in English an  ,-ddress expressing Iho pleasure of the  parly at the opportunity thus afforded  them to offer to tho Dowager-Empress  (heir congratulations on Her, Majesty's  birthday, and tho hope that the precedent would be followed by tho ladies  of China. yf-  The Dowager-Empress graciously returned thanks. Lady MacDonaid, followed by the. rest of   the   ladies,    then.  mounted the dais and -bowed to tho  Emperor and Dowager-Empress. The  latter presented to oach of the ladies a  gold ring set with pearls, which Her  Mujesly herself placed on their fingers.  After this ceremony the foreign  Ministers wives retired lo an adjoining hall, where ,a sumptuous; Chinese  luncheon was served, the Princess  Ching presiding. The interpreters  lunched at a smaller table. The ladies  were then escorted to an adjoining  room for a brief interval of rest. Returning presently lo the banqueting  hall, the ladies found it orowded with  princesses and palace attendants, and a  little later the Dowager-Empress entered, accompanied by the Emp"eroi-'.  wife. The Dowager-Empress is described by those who were present as having a determined face, somewhat s.-k-  . low, but relieved by a charming smiu-.  As past experiments have shown, the ; Contrary  to  the   Chinese   custom, II" r  scheme  is  NOT ALTOGETHER CHIMERICAL.  Part of the proposed system is already  in' action and styled the Mombassa-  Uganda Railroad, runs through what  but a score of years ago was for a white  man the most unhoaltliful country in  the world, missionary teas and kindred civilities being in vogue. This  line now does a paying business. Besides this, in various parts of tho continent, and stretching in a general  direction from north to south, there  are 2,33-1 miles of profitable lines in  operation. Consiuoring mese facts, Mr  Rhodes' plea that oven if his road does  not pay for itself for the first 10 years,  it cannot fail to bo amply profitable  in   the   end,   seems  quite  plausible.  Mr.  Rhodes  has submitted his map  lo   ihe   British   public,  and  oven  now  coaxes   the British .Parliament  to aid  then changing, him  in  his project.
