Spokane, April 29.���������The trouble between the union miners and the operators of the Bunker Hill and Sullivan  mines at Wardner, Idaho, which broke  -  out last Monday because of the refusal  of the mine operators'to pay the union  - scale for unskilled labor employed un-  1 derground, resulted to-day, in the most  disgraceful and deadly rioting this  section of the country has seen since  e- the labor war of 1S92.  One union miner is dead nnd another mortally wounded, as the result  of a volley fired by the strikers. Mills  of' the Bunker Hill and Sullivan have  been blown up by   the strikers with  ' giant powder. The property loss will  amount. to a quarter, of a.million dollars. The work of destruction was  done by Wardner strikers and union  sympathizers fro.������ the Canyon Creek  mines, which are about twenty miles  from Wardner.  A mob of nearly 1,000 men, armed  and masked, seized a train of nine box  cars and one passenger car at Burke  and immediately started for Wardner,  r where they arrived at noon, being met  at Wardner Junction, a mile and a half  out'of town, by a great crowd of union  strikers. After a parley of two hours,  140 masked men, armed with. Winchesters, Burko in the lead and Wardner following, started with yells for  the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mills  and other buildings, a third of a mile  from the depot. They sent pickets  yhead, and one of these pickets fired a  shot as a signal that the mill was  abandoned. This was misunderstood  by the main body of the mob, who imagined that the non union miners in  tho hills had opened fire on them, and  they began li'ing on their own pickets.  About 1.000 shots were thus exah.inged  between tho rioters and their pickets,  and Jack Smith, one. of the pickets,  formerly of British Columbia, and a  noted ligure in drilling contests, was  shot dead. The fatal error "ivas discovered after a few seconds' firing, and  Smith's body was brought down from  the Hillside. By this timo the strikers  had taken possession of the Bunker  Hill and Sullivan mills,   which  lhey  ��������� found deserted, the manager having  directed his employes not to risk their  lives by'battling with the mob.  ' Powder was called for,_ and sixty 50-  pound boxes were carried from tho  depot to the mill. The heaviest charge  was placed among the machinery. Another large charge was placed under  the brick office building. Other  charges were placed around the mill.  Then   the   boarding house,   a   frame  ��������� structure, was fired. Fuses leading to  the charges were lighted, and the  strikers, carrying the dead body of the  picket, retired to a safe distance.  At 2:26 o'clock the; first blast went  off. It shook the ground for miles,  and buildings in^Wardner, two miles  away, trembled."^ At intervals of about  thirty seconds, four other charges went  off, the fifth, being the largest, completely demolishing the mills.  The loss of the Bunker Hill and Sullivan company is estimated at from  $250,000 to $300,000.  In a few minutes the strikers went  back   to the train,   the whistle   was  . blown for the stragglers, and the mob  soon climbed aboard, and at 3 o'clock  ���������just three hours after its anival���������the  train pulled out for Canyon Creek.  Dur.'.ng the fusilade Irom the guns  of the mob, "Jim" Chayne, a Bunker  Hill and Sullivan man, was severely  shot through the hip's. -It is reported  that he was carried off by the strikers,  and his wound is probably fatal. J. J.  Rogers, a stenographer in the employ  of the company, was shot through the  lip, but his wound is trivial.  This morning the 230" non-union  miners at the Bunker Hill and Sullivan had warning of the coming of  the mob, and left the mines and took  to the hills. They have not been seen  since. The union men working in the  Last Chance mine left there this morn-  irjg, presumably to take;part in tho  riot.

The following extract from Sir William Hunter's "History of British India" is being quoted approvingly by  some of the Arherican papers:  "America starts' ou her career of  Asiatic rule  with an aptitude of re  sources and with a sense of _ moral responsibility which no previous State  of Christendom brought to the work.  Each Western nation has stamped on  its Eastern history the Europ������an  ethics of the age when its supremacy  was won. In the splendid and difficult  task" which lies before our American  kinsmen they will be trammelled by  no Spanish Inquisition of the sixteenth  century, nor by the slave colonization  of Holland in the scventeeth, nor by  that cynical rule for the gain of the  rulers which for a time darkened' the  British acquisition of India in eighteenth. The United States, in the government of their dependencies, will  represent the political conscience of  the nineteenth century. I hail their  advent in the East' as a new power for  good, not alone for the island races  who come under their care, but also  in that great settlement of European  spheres of influence in Asia which, if  we could see aright, forms a world  problem of our day."  The present uifliculties in the Philippines seem to be giving strength to  the opponenents ot annexation, but  withdrawal is,' of course, now out of  the questien.  Banjo Recital.  The concert given Saturday evening  in Virginia hall, under the auspices of  the Ladies' Aid ot the Presbyterian  church, though not largely attended,  was otherwise quite successful. The  attraction of tho evening, of course,  was Hyde Gowan, "The Wizard ol' the  Banjo," who not only pleased his audience but gave them a surprise in that  the banjo could be made to give forth  such swei-t melodies. -His rendition  of "Home Sweet Home" and selections  from Ben Bolt proved him to be master  of the instrument. The banjo.selections were interspersed with local talent. Mr. Barron made his first appearance (save in the orchestra at the  Methodist social) before a Sandon audience, giving in artistic style two violin solos, and the applause he received  after both numbers showed that his  talent wi.l be appreciated." Miss Wilson and Mr. Wilkie McKenzie also  pleased the audience with several  solos, Miss Hammond and Mrs. Funk  acting as respective accompanists.  Mr. Gowan aUo gave a e-jiiple of  sacred selections at the Presbyterian  church Sunday evening, which were  thoroughly appreciated by the congregation.        ' '  EDUCATION DEPARTMENT.

The Recent. Strike  Has Uucoyered  the Yilliany of Someone  in the  Past.  There has been considerable interest  aroused over the recent strike in tlie  Wonderful mine, and Captain C. II.  Thompson, who has just visited the  mines, gives the following interesting  account of the strike :  "Some one who worked the mine in  former days discovered the vein and  then covered up the discovery. I do  not know who did it, and so am not  reflecting upon any one in particular.  We came upon it by accident. We  were led' to explore the old workings  through having our suspicions aroused  that something of value might be in  them. Not long ago a miner came to  superintendent Davis and wanted to  secure a lease upon a specified section  of the mine, agreeing to pay a royalty  upon all the ore he could find there.  The lease included the old workings in  the drift. Mr. Davis told him that a  lease was out of the question, and after  he had gone the superintendent began  to think about the matter and at last  he concluded that an investigation  was necessary. He cleaned out the  drift, taking out much dirt that had  evidently been carted in there. Fi  nally he came to a point where the  lagging along the wall of the drift was  fastened up with big^ spikes. That  looked suspicious, so he opened it up  and found that ore had been stoped nt  the side of the driit three timber sets  high and 13 feet wide. The sills res I  on vein matter and ore, the stopc had  been paitially filled with dirt, which  Mr. Davis thinks had been wheeled in  there, as tne timbering was too close  to permit of its having fallen down.  It was no easy task to clean the place  out, but we "have about got through  with the work and and have taken out  two carloads of shipping ore, which  we found hidden in tlie stopc. Average assays of this ore show it to carry  13S ounces ofcsilver. and 76 per cent,  lead.  "The vein there is clearly defined.  Its presence at that point proves that  the tunnel was run away from it rather  than toward it. The vein has also  been exposed by the hydraulic work  that has been done upon the claim. It  ihowa thore exactly where it should  be if our calculations, as to its presence near the portal of the old tunnel,  is correct. As soon as weather will  permit we shall start a force of men at  work upon the surtace of the vein at  this exposed point. A drift can be  run into the hill gaining depth on the  vein. But we !.re about t* tap this  vein at a t crtical depth of 132 feet. I  expect to have the news of the strike  at any time. This tunnel has b en  running in for some time and has  reached a point 500 feet beyond the  portal. It has crossed a clay seam and  is 10 feet into porphyry formation.  "This is a duplicate of the formation  through which the Ruth tunnel passed  before it came into the vein. Beyond  25 feet of blue porphyry the Ruth tunnel came into the vein of clean shipping ore. We are in the same porphyry, and are nearing a point where  we expect the vein to be. Altogether  the outlook for the mine is  orable.���������Nelson Miner.  The Palmita.  most fav-  Work is progressing steadily on both  the Palmita and Silverite adjoining.  The ore body on the latter has now increased to 17 inches ������f clean ore. The  lower tunnel on the Palmitr is now  within a few feet of the lead.      .       .  PAIN CEASED FIRST DAY.  '������������������ Mrs. Mary O'Dell. 262 Dunn Ave.,  Toronto, writes: "I have used Mil-  bum's Rheumatic Pills and they cured  me of a severe attack of rheumatism.  The pain ceased after the first day's  trial of the remedy."  Was "Joe" Martin Worsted.  Victoria, May 1.���������-The provincial  government today gave effect to their  announced^ determination to claim  Deadman's Island, timber inspector  Skinner taking formal inspection on  their behalf. It is pointedly announced that this action is taken upon  the advice of chief cpmraiosioner of  lands and works Cotton. The fact that  the executive has hot acted upon the  advice of the attornay-general, who  has been lighting to uphold the .Dominion ownership on behalf of his  private client Lud'gatc, seems to indicate an embarrassing bositicu of affairs, of which the opposition are  endeavoring to make the most. The  Colonist insists that the circumstances  are such that premier Setnlin or the  lieutenant-governor should demand  Martin's resignation.  The action of the provincial government in taking possession of the island  is intended to place upon the Dominion  the burden of proving ownership.  MINES AND MINING.  The I. 0. 0. F. Banquet.  The entertainment given by this  society on Friday night last was highly satisfactory in all respects. The  Rev. A. M. Sanford occupied the chair  in his usual humorous style. The proceedings consisted of songs by a quartette���������Messrs. Sewell and Grimrnett,  and Mesdames Sanford and Nicholls;  a duet by the ladies; song Mr.Sewell;  song Mrs. Cliffe; guitar solo Mrs.  Yates; readings and song by Rev. J. A.  Cleland, and several selections by a  voluntder choir- Mrs. Funk accompanied most of the entertainers on the  piano most acceptably. At 12 o'clock  all repaired to the Sandon hotel where  mine host Cunning had spread one of  the best suppers ever gotten up in this  part of the country. The menu we  give below. On account of the lateness of the hour, the usual toasts had  to be dispensed with, much to the regret of many present.  MENU.  Raw Oysters.  SOUP.

WEAK WOMEN  Can be made strong and healthy, by  Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills. Miss  Skullion, 50 Turner St., Ottawa, says :  "Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills enriched i my blood, strengthened my  blood, strengthened my nerves and restored me to health and vigor."  Bar silver is quoted at G21 cents in  New York. This is the highest since  the slump two years ago.  W. Vallcntine and   J. Werley have  gone fo. Bear Lake to do some assess- \  ment work on claims there.  B. McDonald, a mining expert, is  sent up by the late purchasers of Payne  stock in Montreal, to look over .the  property.  The Mountain Chief at NewDenver  has been purchased by the Manchester  Smelting Company (English) for the  zinc it contains. This is the same  that purchased the Lucky Jim.  H. A. Blumcnauer, of Spokane, has  passed through the city en route for  AVikon creek, where he is interested  in some mining properties. Mr. Green  got a grant for a trail there, aiid its expenditure will likely give some activity to that locality.  The new Montreal Company owning  the Sovereign mine, near here, recently -  put 50,000 shares on the market at 25  cents, and so speedily was the amount  taken up that they found it advantageous to place 100,000 more on sale.  This shows the growing demand in  Eastern Canada for Slocan properties.  A 10-foot seam, carrying gold, silver  and copper, unearthed in No. 2 tunnel  of the Leviathan mine, near Kaslo, is  creating quite an excitement in that  city. It used to be said that Kaslo  had no mines, but as time rolls on they  are being discovered there as well as  in other points of the highly mineralized Slocan.  r  Mr. D. J. McLaughlin, port owner of  the_C. 0. D. mine at Bear Lake, met ,  an important discovery in driving a  cross-cut tunnel the other day. When  in about 80 feet he struck a 4-inch  vein of very high-grade ore that assays  380 oz. of silver and 65 in gold. The '  seam shows well defined walls and  may be the main ledge of the property.  The new strike at the Wonderful is  no doubt a permanency. On account  of the seam lying: quite flat, as man"  elevated scams do owing to the dropping of the foot wall, the width is  more difficult to ascertain, and besides  the company lmve done but little work  tliere since the discovery. In a few,  days more will be known about it. In  the interval the company are going  back to their old workings, to get ready  for shipping later on,  ��������� Mr. Warner, manager, has made another strike on the Argenta, one of the  Madison group. It is a seam of some  15 inches of solid galena. This is the  lead that is supposed to be the continuation of the Noble Five. This is the  second seam encountered in tlie crosscut on the proDerty. The first seam  has 12 inches of galena that has given  $300 to the ton, as smelter returns.  The Madison has been less than a year  under work and is promising exceedingly well.

Thure was something  in oven    the  earliest    surroundings ol'    tho future  Empress  that  seemed  like a  forecast  of her future, with all its glory and  all its bitterness.   The casile of   red  stone, in which she was brought up,  lay in   the midst of    a landscape of  pine-trees   and   rocks; and   on  shore  of ono of the sad and sombrs  lakes  of the north���������so    different from   the  sun-lit and laughing waters of southern lands.   The girl,  with her    long  treason of silken gold, was a dreamer  from childhood, used to gaze hours at  a time  into  the deep waters, of   the  shadowy lake; and  to    throw herself  with a sense of luxury and abandonment on the bed of flowers which surrounded her father's home.   Thus early, too, she was brought into friendly  and  intimate contact  with her inferiors, for her father was a man of the  simplest habits, and  there   was. still  kept   ^p  in  the    country    districts   a  close and kind intimacy between  the  master and the servant.     Iler father  hajd a love for writing, for the dances  of the peasants in his grounds to tho  sound of the zither; a detestation for  the ceremoniousness and splendours of  .Court  life.   He was    the proper kind  of father for    a daughter   who fled  from courts, and for a son who, as wo  know, has abandoned his princely rank  to  do  the  work of an  oculist  among  Lhe poor and the afflicted.  One  season  the  family  went  on  iLs  annual   holiday  Lo    the mountains  of  Austria,    and   'among   Lhe mountains  and (he larch trees of Ischl; and there  it was    that  one    evening    the Utile  Prince-is danced several Limes and had  long conversations owich a cousin who  was young and handsome and wiity,  and who, during Lhe evening, too shy  to speak  Lhe  lovo that already   overwhelmed  his    whole   being, presented  hor with a bouquet of flowers.  When  the next day   Lhe little princess   was  told that her cousin���������already ihe powerful Emperor oC a great Empire���������had  v    proposed   to ner,   sho   grew   suddenly  whiLe, and then wilh a burst of sobs,  cried:      "it  is  impossible;  I'm    such  an insignificant little thing!"     There  wai' a certain sinister foreboding    in  lhal spontaneous cry of a child's heart  (the I'rincess at the moment was barely   sixteen,) for it    revealed   already  that kingdom within her soul of self-  distrust    and    nervous     apprehension  which was in  Lime destined to    make  her one of Lhe unhappiest of women.  However,  Lhe young    Emperor would  accepl no denial; and Lhen Lhere came  a few  monLhs of an existence as ideal,  as full of dreams and visions, of poetic  fancies and facts as though Lhe story  were some creation of lhe imagination  o������ a poet, and not the realities of Lhis  work-a-day world ; trips in those wild  mountains which in their loftiness and  remoteness,    suggest   all   Lhe    empyrean elevation ol  Lhe ordinary  Lhings  of  lifo,  lha.1  aro  Lhe  accompaniments  of the brief read passion of Iho young.  And in addilion lo all  this, marks of  devotion,    of playful    and    chivalrous  surprises,  on  the part of  the    future  husband,   that    showed  how a young  emperor in love is like all other youths  in-love.   Vienna is not far from Munich,  especially, to  one    who flies    on  , lover's wings, and the.young Princess  would wake up .one morning to find  that the carriage of the Emperor was  outside, the door, and that a bouquet  of the roses she always loved so well,  was there    beside    her bed,    to, meet  the first look of her waking eyes.  And better than  all, ihe love of the  : lover was shared, and even exaggerated, by that of the people over whom  she was to rule.   "The little Bavarian  rose, adorable and adored,"���������this was  the language which  was    everywhere  applied to her, in the Austrian papers  and in the conversation of the people.  When she set out for hor now   dominions, it    was like one of the, fairy  . 'voyages of a    Wagner heroine.      The  journey, in the first place, from Munich to Vienna, was made in true Wagnerian    fashion���������that    is  to., say,    by  water, instead of the prosaic railway  train.     At    every village the   young  Princess is   met by deputations with  heaps of flowers, and an abundance of  good wishes and  blessings and praise  for tho long golden hair and beautiful  faco    of the'   lovely bride; and from  first to last, Elizabeth cared more for  the praises of her    beauty than    the  homage to  her station.    At Linz,  another lover's sweet surprise;   Francis  Joseph; is there to meet her in strict  incognito, to kiss her lovely lips, and  then to rush secretly away on horse-  ��������� back, aad by forced stages, so that he  may be in his capital in time to be  present  at  the  official  reception, and  give her a ceremonial greeting.  What a day of days that last day of  tho voyage between Munich and  Vienna ? The sun shone brightly  over the limpid waters; the haze in  the air was the proper atmosphere for  this epoch    oi     dreams and delicious  longings;    and on  the bridge of   the  boat, which is a mass of flowers, and  undei-    a  tent of purple    velvet,  embroidered with bees in gold, the young  Princess,    radiant  in  beauty and    in  love, waves her    handkerchief to.-, the  cheering    thousands    that  line    both  banks of  tho  broad,  blue river.      At  last tho boat, now a bower of flowers,  reaches Nussdorf, the first suburb of  Vienna, and in a'  building    specially  prepared    for   the    occasion,   all    tho  nobility have been waiting for hours  to greet    the future,   Empress.  t   Sho  lands at last in tears of delighted emotion ;   and   everything is   done to tell  her of the enthusiasm and heartiness  und splendour of the welcome.      Tho  crowds shoul, tho cannons roar, every  steeple sends forth its chimes; a carriage with eight horses and surrounded by gallant guardsmen and braying  trumpeters and   a multitude   almost  beside  itself    with  joy,    conducts  her  and     her     husband   to   Schonbrunn,  lhe    Imperial    residence; one    bridge  sho   pusses   has  been    covered    wilh  seventeen    thousand    roso  trees    and  camelias and palm trees that a great  courtier of immense wealth has   had  transported there from his famous and  vast conservatories.     Every ten steps  young maidens dressed in white present     her    with  baskets    of    flowers,  throw roses at her feet, bless her pret-  tiness, her sweetness,  her love.  And then a few monLhs of prolonged  honeymoon; and then the whole fabric of her happiness, the whole orderliness   of her   existence,   came to  an  end.   It is a sad, but in many respects  a        common-place      story.     Francis  Joseph has always been a high-minded  man, and to his wife there always re-  mainec sufficient of the first glow of  early passion and affection   to' make  him,  tender, considerate,  long-suffering,   Lo a  woman  Lhat    proved  to   be  exacling,'   unaccounlable,    a      wrailh  and an elusive vision rather than    a  real  wife or molher or Empress. But  Lhe  original    wrong  came from  him.  This beautiful young creature was the  last of all women to bear neglect and  infidelity.     She had  brought  to  love  all the idealism and elevation and exaggerated demands of the highly nervous    and imaginative race to which  she    belonged���������that    race of Wittels-  baoh, which produced in our Lime the  mad King ot    Bavaria, who    drowned  himself, and Lhe still more hopelessly  mad King who is in a lunalic asylum.  And she had  Lhen, and  to her  luLest  hour, more Lhan the average woman's  weaknesses, and, above all, Lhe weakness of vanily.   The  decepLion of her  love was a hitler blow; llio wound lo  her vanily, was, perhaps, even    more  biller,  when she  discovered  LhaL  tho  Emperor followed the path of so many  olhei   monarchs,    and  in    eiLher    Lhe  theatrf- or the circus, found some rival  beauty, whose charms made him forget  for the. moment Lhe proud, supersensi-  live,  morbid,    beautiful    woman  that  was eating ouL her heart in Lhe haled  and lonely splendour ot Schonbrunn.  Women,  and  even  queens,  in    that  position, act differenlly.      Some have  found consolation in religion, others in  children,  a  third  class,  in .works    of  benevolence���������visits to    hospitals,    the  care of the   wounded,  tho   poor,  the  wretched.   Others, again, find the cultivation of the inlellecl some compensation for the wreckage and emptiness  of tho heart.     But   Elizabeth of Austria could find relief in none of these  things.     She did  not  care for music,  she did not care for art, she did not  care for reading.    A whole legend has  been built up which represents her as  an intellectual woman ; Lhe legend has  no  foundalion  in   facl.     Nor  did   she  care for society.   Even in the days of  her glory she loved solitude; she hated  Lhe ceremonials of Courts.   She never  danced willingly.   For many years she  was so little seen by  the inhabitants  of the oily which once adored her that  she could    have passed    through even  Lhe  crowded  streets  without  attracting recognition.   There is a characteristic slory of her   which    brings this  out.   She always loved to mix freely  with people, and ono day she, got into  an omnibus.   The unconscious and in-  desLruclible air of  dignity    and com-  mana which she always bore impressed  her      fellow-passengers;    Lhey      were  more impressed still when she refused  to take, any change from Lhe piece   of  gold which she had handed Lo lhe conductor;  in short, she was recognized.  Crowds gathered ��������� from    all quarters;  there was a scene of wild enthusiasm,  a great  demonstration  of admiration.  The-Empress was furious.   She rushed  into  the first  house,    and    asked  an  asylum from the people she did Y not  know; and two hours afterwards, with  drawn blinds, she found her way back  to the palace in a carriage  Her follies did not end bore.   It is  symbolical of her lifo that iu her bedroom in  the cottage in  the forest at  Lainz, where she often took    refuge  from  tho ceremonials of    Courts  and  the weariness of her own heart, ihcre  is    a  large    nnd  sumptuous    picture,  which  tells the  story of Tilauia���������the  beautiful  Queen  that    loved and  embraced the donkey.   It.is a picture riot  only  symliolical  of  her  own  life,  but  also one that haunts her;��������� and lhat to  a'certain extent represents her philosophy   of  life���������at   least so  far  as   tho  love of woman is concerned.     She insists several times in those strangely  frank    conversations    she  holds with'  her last Greek secretary that woman  is always throwing away her love, as  Titania threw hers; in other words, it  is the cruel  irony  of  human  destiny  that it is:the unworthy and not   the  worthy that'appeals to the hidden tendencies,  the  obscure,    and  sometimes  the   sinister    impulses of   a woman's  nature.   She sought to find I in others  the devotion    and  intoxications    that  she had,once hoped to get at the side  of her    husband;  hence    a series    of  caprices���������romantic    and  grotesque,   at  once || humiliating and  pathetic.  There is another brief spell of hap-  piness_when the reconciliation comes  between Hungary and Austria. For  some reason there is a sympathy between ; Hungarians and /Elizabeth  which she has nevor been able to feel  or inspire in her German subjects.  Perhaps it is the strain of excitability  in these children of the East which  makes them kin with her own erratic.  and unstrung temperament. At all  events she is always adored in Hungary���������down to the latest hour���������after  years of separation and invisibility.  The story of the celebrations which  took place when she made her entry  and took part in the coronation, after  the recognition of Hungary's ancient  autonomy, reads like scenes from the  Arabian Nights���������a carriage drawn by  eight white horses, cavaliers dressed in  all the luxuriant array of the Hungarian magnates; streets strewn with  roses; churches hung in silk ; and in  Lhe midsl of it all, the Queen of Hungary���������still beautiful, proud, and with  the long tresses that never loft her;  and over her shoulders a rich mantle  of whito silk studded , with diamonds.  It  is perhaps  tho influence of   this  scene���������tho    softening of    feeling���������the  flowing again of tho congealed'tide of  affection, that leads to   a temporary  reconciliation    between  hor    and  her  husband.   : There is   another   reason,  Leak, tho great Hungarian statesman,  who had brought to an end the struggle ot Hungary for liberty���������one of tho  loftiest, spirits of    any epoch���������whom  Elizabeth comes by-and-by to worship  with all the reverence due to, a father  ���������Deak says significantly to the Emperor:   "Sire,  now  that  your peoples  aro reeonciled, you ought to think of  your,   own    family I"     The    Emperor  takes the frank remonstrance of his  greatest subject to heart; tho Empress  has probably    been spoken to in   tho  same spirit.   In short,  the dead past  is for the moment'forgotten���������its miseries, its 'deceptions,' its bitterness. A  child is born within a year of the reconciliation  of Austria and Hungary.  Sho is called officially tho Archduchess  Mane Valerie,.but, with a smile, the  people speak of her as the "Child of  the Reconciliation."  In time, this child proves. the last  ��������� refuge���������the final and only consoler of  her unhappy mother. Sho is a delicate  child; the molher, in tho case of other  children capricious in hor affections,  nejglectful of some duties,'bestows on  this last daughter all the treasures of  her affection; by her bedside sho is  ready to watch night and day. It is  this same daughter who first rouses  tho attention of her mother to ��������� the  consolations of literature; and, finally,  it is Lhis same daughter���������the "Child of  the Reconciliation"��������� that rushes to  the side of the other parent when in  the lonely Palace of Schonbrunn,  crowded (with so many memories o������  youlh and love and hope, of age and  estrangement and separation, iL is she  who rushes to his side ami helps him  to live 'through the agony of the  tragic ending of that life which had  begun in such lustrous sunshine forLy-  four years beforo.   .  ���������ibf&&9>&  SUGGESTIONS TO HOUSEKEEPERS.  There was talk at one time that  aluminum was the coining material  for cooking utensils, but we hear loss  about it nowadays. Perhaps that is  because the first cost is greater than  that of tin, agate, etc. But when the  durability, indestructibility and beauty of the ware is taki'n into account  it is really economical. Aluminum  has tho silvory sheen of silver, and requires for cleaning only a rubbing  wilh a flannel moistened iu kerosene  and then dipped in whillng. Pickles,  howover, should not be made in aluminum, but for tho mosL part neither  acids nor alkalies effect it at all.  -  Housecleajiing will soon be in order,  amd a receipt for cleaning a soiled carpel will not be amiss. Take up, boat  and nail the carpet down again. Get  a dime's worth of soap bark, pour in  it; 2 gallons of boiling water, let stand  an hour on the back of the stove. Then  take two or three quarts of the water, and with a stiff brush go over  the carpet; dipping lightly in the  water and brushing evenly. ' Begin  at the farthest corner land work toward the door. Open doors and windows and let in the air and sun,t and  keep people out of Lhe roam till the  carpet is thoroughly dry.  Beels, boiled, peeled and packed into glass cans while hot, the cans then  filled up with hoL vinegar, spiced or  plain, and sealed, will keep till summer vegetables como and prove a  very appetizing relish in the spring.  IS A SMALL WAIST BEAUTIFUL?  This  is   the ��������� o  shape of  a woman's waist  on which a corset tiglre  ts laced.    The ribs, deformed  by being squeezed, press  on the lungs till they're  diseased.    The heart  is jammed aiid  , cannot pump ;  the liver  is   a  torpid lump ;  the stomach,  crushed, cannot  digesf, and in a mess  are all   compressed.    Therefore this silly woman grows to  be a  fearful  mass  of  woes,  but thinks she has a lovely  shape, though hideous  as a crippled ape.  This is  a woman's  natural   waist,  which corset tight  has not disgraced.   Inside  it is a mine of health.    Outside,  of charms it has a wealth.  It is a thing of beauty  true, and a sweet joy  ��������� for ever new.    It  needs no artful  padding- vile,  or bustle big to  give il " style."  It's strong and solid,  plump and sound,'and  hard   to  get.   one's  arm  around.; ..Alas !   if women  /only  knew the mischief that  tight corset's do;- they'd let  Dame Nature have her  "-,'  ease, and never try her  waist to saueeze.

Sometimes curiosity gets the better  of a man and he asks his wife what  she has done all day. "Oh, a hundred  and one little things," she says. Thea  he thinks of some monotonous scheme  over which he has been working all  day, and makes a mental comparison,  in which his wife's work takos second place. . He 'overlooks the fact,  however,' that a woman's life in the  home is raado up of "little things,"  and that these same "little things"  are not only necessary,' but that they  aro absolutely vital to the even adjustment of tho domestic machinery  of his home. They aro "little" only'  in a woman's eyo; they' would instantly assume proportions of mag- '  nitudo if the man's hands wore to try  to do them.  CHRISTIANS IN CHINA.  FUNNY, HONEYMOONS.  A lew years ago a newly wedded  couple . living 10 miles southeast of  Brookvillo, Ky.,. took as a honeymoon  trip n wagon ride to witness the hanging o������ Robert McLaughliu, whioh occurred at Brookvillo.  A .short while since an adventurous  couple spent their first days of wedded  lifo on the summit of Mont Blanc- The  ascent, extremely hazardous by reason  of terrific snowstorms, being successfully accomplished, and the summit  reached, the bridegroom, in ' tho presence of the guides, embraced his young  wife, to whom he swore eternal fidelity,  and received from her lips an equally  fervent assurance. Then the descent  was commenced, and the couple, after  three, days' absence, arrived at Cha-  mounix, whore they were accorded an  enthusiastic reception.        ;  There are on record four honeymoons known; to have been spent in  Mammoth Cave, Kentucky.

It is time the people of Canada took  a closer look into the incidental (?) expenses   of   those   in   authority   and  adopted some measure whereby annual  extravagance can be curtailed.   In the  auditor-general's report, just issued, we  ������ee Minister Turte taking over $15,000  to iix up an   oflice with tumblers, decanters, liquors etc.,   and   when questioned about it the reply is, it requires  a certain expenditure to keep up the  dignity of state.     While we   are not  averse to a man's treating a friend to a  ,   glass of champagne if lie wants to, we  fail to see where dignity comes in  by  lavishing thexnoney of tlie people on  bottles of champagne and bad whiskey.  Of course cabinet ministers are, like  other people, at  liberty  to use their  own money as  they see  proper ;  but  when public opinion is divided on the  advisability of using liquor as  a memento   of .friendship,   the   waste   of  money in this way should not be tolerated.  But it is not alone in this way that  public money is wasti-d. The public  accounts show the following expenditures of the present government in the  last two years in travelling:  Sir W. Laurier in Europe 7,000  Sir W. Laurier in Canada  1,133  Sir Louis Davies     510  Mr. Tarte  1,291  Mr. Blair  1,299  Mr. Sifton  1,221  Mr. Borden  1,870  Mr. Mulock, for 1898 only .'....'1,000  Mr. Fisher  1,101  Mr. Fitzpatrick      390  Sir Richard, for 1S97 only      501  Mr. Fielding ���������.     250  Travelling of all hands, with  banquets for International  Commission 33,600  It may be argued, and very truthfully, that the late government spent  large sums in travelling also; but admitting the statement to be a fact it  ' does not justify the .waste of public  money '.' indiscriminately. It is, of  course, hard for the public to say just  when business calls a minister to take  atrip; but so" free are the hands of  governments in these matters that  usually whenever, they want to take a  pleasure trip for their own recreation  ���������and enjoyment, the railways place a  private car at their disposal, and the  public are taxed with the shot. ��������� What  we want to show is that this expenditure should be controlled as a properly  constituted business concern would  control its daily outlays. Actual expenses in needed public service should  be met, and other payments should be  charged to the ministers personally.  Go through the country again and you  will see officials crowded in here and  there, with salaries and incidentals, a  heavy and useless charge on the public  treasury.   . y,'...-.-Y  It is safe to say that if all this service was reduced to that of a well-  managed corporation, as the C. P.' R.  for instance, at least a million a, year  could be saved to the public. We believe it would be in the interest of  Canada/if a permanent Board of businessmen and accountants was appointed to control the entire expenditures of the government in these channels. The public accounts committee  of the House will never do it. That  committee has always on it a majority  of partizan slaves of ihe dominant  party of the House, and they will always swaar to the judiciousness of the  expenditures of their masters. They  know that throwing out an account is  always proof of the extravagance of  their party, and they never can allow  the country to hear of news like that.  ing, calling for fuither drains on the  treasury, so there is no hope for the  construction of the necessary wagon  roads from the government. There is,  for instance, urgent demand for wagon  roads up to the Queen Bess and the  Reco mines, with branches to other  convenient mines to these trunk roads;  and, though private subscriptions  could readily be got for most of the  cost of both roads, the government  cannot be induced to advance the balance. With proper municipal institutions, all this could readily be removed. Tlie government collects all  I the personal property tax of the province,and receives but������90,000altogether  from that source. They collect all the  realty tax of the country outside of  the municipalities, and receive but]  5125,000 from that source also, or a  little better than $200,000 from both.  If we had municipal institutions the  country over, with power to collect  realty and personal taxation, at least  ������500,000 would be collected, which  would be quite ample to meet all local  requirements.' Anyone who looks into  the matter fully'will.see that the rates  of the government are low, and omissions are very common. The circumstances show that assessments nnd  taxation on present lines are most un-  satisfactory-in short satisfactoiy work  on such long ranges is wholly out of  the question. Give us municipal government, if even of a territorial char-  actor, with power to assess on proper  valuation and all the roads, bridges  and trails required in the country can  readily be built from local resources  Justice Walk em Judgement iu  Famous Mining Suit.  Everybody     knows    that   the   establishment   of   a   mint   in   Canada  would  give   employment   to a large  number    ot   men.       It   would   also  keep a lot of money in the   country  that is now" paid out in   royalty   on  the gold,   silver   and   copper   we get  coined in Great Britain for circulation  and security at home;   and yet every  bank, and every man who is a large  holder of  bank stocks in the country  opposes a mint in Canada.   The ordinary citizen will enquire the reason of  this.   You have it fully explained by  going into a bank and asking a teller  to cash a cheque or a draft, or pay a  bill.   He will invariably hand you out  the bills of his own bank.   He wants  to keep the promises to pay, we might  even say  the promissory notes, of his  own institution abroad in circulation  instead of his cash.   A business man  would rather pay an account with a  promissory note than, with cash, when  it costs him no interest to do so, and  the same is true of Banks and bank  owners.   This is   quite natural;  but  tha question is,   whether  should the  people of Canada through their representatives   allow their  own   personal  intersts or those of the bankers prevail  in legislation.   This is the whole question in a nutshell.  R������ssland, B.C.,  April 29���������The great  law suit of the Iron Mask and tlie Centre Star developed   rather sensational  features yesterday.    Expert Clarence  King finished   his testimony shortly  after the court met yesterday morning.  E. P. Davis then made a formal application to do certain experimental work  in that  part of the   disputed   ground  known as the Centre Star winze.' This  is the third time the defendants have  made (his motion to explore tlie plain-  tiiPs working*,in order to demonstrate  the truth'of tlie facts alleged by them.  Twice they have failed,  but yesterday  thoy   obtained   tlie' wished-lor  order.  E. V. Bodwell, for the plaintiffs, most  vigorously opposed the order, and the  whole ofthe court's time was taken up  by tlie consideration of  the application.   At tho conclusion'of the argument, Mr. Justice Walkem   delivered  judgement, allowing   the   defendant's  workings and granting them leave to  do the further-work asked.   Mr. Bodwell at once asked   for a stay of proceedings   until   an appeal   could   be  hoard, but it was finally arranged that  all details, including the exact form of  the order, should be settled when the  court meets this morning.   It is, however, only the details that  will come  up.   The court has   already   granted  the order asked.   Mr. Bodwell slated  that, without question,  he would insist on an an adjournment of the whole  case until an appeal from tlie order  could be disposed of, and, if the order  was finally allowed on appeal a further  adjournment    would   be    necessary.  There is no doubt that the plaintiffs  will resort to any  and every possible  means to prevent  the carrying, out of  the order.   If the judge decides to proceed  with   the trial,   and grants   the  order Mr. Bodwell, counsel for the Iron  Mask case,   will,   under  no   circumstances, withdraw from the case, but  may decide to refuse to oil'er any evidence, in case tlie court  refuses' to allow   an adjournment.    It   is   beyond  doubt a  great victory for the Centre  Star people.   The granting of the mo-  lion will be a substantial advantage, in  any event' of   the case.    It has been  stated   on  the streets here   that this'  practically ends the case, but that is  entirely  untrue,   and there is  a long  fight before the court yet.  Happy,  healthy childhood !

A HAMILTON LADY  PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS.       ,  There   is not another province  in  Canada  as. badly in need   of public  road*,' as  this is, and there is not another in which   legislation stands as  much in the way of their construction.  Our mines can only be developed as  they should be by th������ construction of  trails and   wagon roads.    Trams are  expensive, and can only be utilized by  large and   well   advanced  properties.  Yet the ways and means to construct  these roads is the problem.   Ask the  government for a grant, aiid they will  tell you   that   interest   on loans   expended on parliament buildings, bonuses to railways, loans to municipalities for irrigation and other   public  improvements on the coast so far consume the annual receipts,   that they  can do nothing.

The party  attacked was the Haines trail commit-,  tee, who had raised fundu, located  camps, and started to open a summer  trail to Klukwan and thence to Boulder  Creek. The natives took exception to  the intrusion of the white men and,  about 200 strong and well armed,  started to drive off the workers, who  retreated into the mission.

Do you see this  package?  keep it in  your mind  and when you ask  for "Athlete '  See that this is  what you get.  mm  &  m Jack was seated,  in a most preoari-  ous position on the iop of a small yellow wagon, and was lashing out furiously    at her    ponokomitax    with    a  wooden-handled,      two-thonged    quirt  which she had just got from1 a Peigan,  Indian   in   exchange   for _ a blue-silk  ��������� handkerchief.     Her cayuses wore two  chairs securely strapped to the wagon,  with various parts of her bridle,    the  light-yellow one, with both arms missing, representing to her lively imagin-|  ation a fine buckskin steed; the other,  which had originally    been    a respec-  '/flble  piece of walnut  furniture,   but  &ad   apparently    stood   the  stress    of  much  bad    weather,  until  it  had  as- j  turned a mottled, degraded aspect, do- |  ing  duty  as  a vicious,  unmanageable '  pin to.  Jack    and    her  spirited  team  were  drawn up com'fortably in tho parallelo- '  gram of shade before the shack, 'and .  from time to time, during her imgain- i  ary  race over a prairie infested with '  hostile Indians, she would let fly  an ;  arrow from  the bow which  was her !  latest  treasure, shriek  out  delighted-!  ly and blood-thirstily, "Another Indian  bites the dust 1" and then fall to lashing her' steeds more    furiously than  ever  in her    attemfpt  to    escape  her  pursuers.  There may be misguided people who  think that a little girl only seven and  a half years old and of exceptionally  aristocratic lineage should  have been  engaged in more    ladylike pursuits��������� j  playing with dolls,  for example.     It .  is true that' Jack had dolls,  but she j  never played with them1. Ignorant and j  unthinking    but kindly    relatives   in j  England had sent her dolls from time i  to  time���������dolls   with beautiful  flaxen j  hair  and languishing  violet-blue eyes, '  ���������but they wero all carefully put away,  and were regarded by Jack with either  unconcealed    contempt or  perfect  in-.  difference.     Jack was not that kind of ,  little girl.     She was as straight and ;  lithe and active as a boy, and her big i  gray    eyes looked   out  curiously ��������� and  fearlessly    from    a tangle    of    short, I  dark-biown hair on a world all  level  prairie, and towering Rockies, and Indians, and orderlies in scarlet  tunics,  and ponies, and government traps, and  Lec-Melford    rifles.      Her    baptismal  names were Jacqueline  Alberta  Mar-  joribanks.     Sho had been offered up,  when too young  to protest  except  by  unintelligible screams, at the altar of  her ancestors, and had been basely imposed  upon    and    m'ade  to  bear    the  names of people who wero- absolutely  unknown and    uninteresting    to  her.  No  one slopped   to   consider   that  because,  her mother's   grandmother had  been  a   noted    French    beauty���������Mile.  , Jacqueline d'JErlinot���������that was no very  'good  reason  for   naming  after  her  a  helpless English infant, who was certainly no beauty at lhat early period  of her career.     They simply told the  officiating clergyman,  and  he  poured  a silver goblet of water over her convulsed countenance and inexorably announced lhat her name was Jacqueline.  Her molher, having thus established a  claim for her side of the family, gave  way to'her'husband, and Captain Eviston put in    a .counter-claim! for    his  family by annexing "Marjoribanks" to  "Jacqueline." "Alberta"      was     a  joint concession to the reigning family  and an official recognition of tho fact  that Jacqueline rejoiced in the same  birthday as the Prince of Wales. This  magnificent profusion of names was  -luckily reduced in daily practice to  "Jack," which was a most happy and  appropriate name for her. Life was  too short and exciting in that little  out-of-the-way corner of the Canadian  Northwest Territory to waste time in  bestowing majestic appellations' on  any one.. . The garcon manque effect  about Jack impressed every ono. - She  could ride as straight and' almost as  far as her father, never rising: to, the  trot to ease her tired little bones, but  sitting proudly and firm'ly in her boy's  saddle; and she had a way of cantering widely and carelessly down hills,  and of urging her fourteen-hand pony,  Nellie, across swift little mountain  streams, and up and down impassable  trails, that was decidedly masculine,  and caused the grown-ups with her  to shudder as they followed unwillingly. Broken toys had no place in  her existence, but a lam'e pony, was a  calamity of moment, and ; to be obliged  to go in the trap instead of being allowed to ride her bronco when her father  went on one o' his forty-mile drives to  un outlying detachment.was enj of the  greatest..sorrows that life hald for her;  She observed cartain proprieties in  her riding which were rather puzzling.  Although she loved her boy's saddle to  tho utter exclusion of even the most  fascinating of pigskin side-saddles, yet  she scorned to be seen riding in knickerbockers. They were, usually, modestly hidden under a full kilt of blue  Berge. That fact, however, did not  prevent her appearing at any time in  a pair of gorgeous buckskin snaps, -  embroidered up the sides and adorned  with innumerable erinne skns. There  seemed to be a subtle difference between knickerbockers and shaps that  appealed   to Jack. .  Jack knew a great many  things lhat  older   people   were ignorant   of.     She  possessed a fund , of   miscellaneous information, and   there was an odd sort  of reliability and steadiness about her  that struck one as quite 'wonderful, and  grown-up people were continually startling   themselves  by  discovering    that  ..they were  talking   to,her and consulting her as if she were as old as them-  ���������   selves.     It seemed quite natural    for  Jack ��������� to know   that common bluing was  better   than   lime for a saddle-gall, although one would not ordinarily except  children of her age   to have   ideas  on  'such a subjetc; and no One seemed   to  'think it was asking a great deal of her  ���������to suggest casually  that she should go  ���������forth on her pony, bareback, and scour;  !the surrounding prairie for  the riding-  corses, and drive  them into  the corral.  She was also  allowed   to go  back and  forth to Highwood, the nearest village, quite alone, and entirely unchecked by the fact that she was almost certain to encounter wild cattle  and roving Indians. Indeed, ihdiahs  were hor special delight. Sho had  numberless friends among them, and  had picked up a colloquial knowledge  of the Blackfoot language, and was always flatteringly interested in pony-  races and horse.-Bwappingi expeditions.  The Indians, on their side, wero gravely polite to Jack, and would say  "How!" impressively when they met on  the trail;, and they would offer to let  her ride their trioky little ponies  while thoy waited to see , tho inspector  and would applaud her pluck and laugh  delightedly when sho would fearlessly  mount one and go bucking nnd plunging about the inclosure. Unless such  good times were summarily cut short  by the appearance.of her mother on  (he veranda, Jack would enjoy herself  hugely, ', and would ask innumerable  questions of the Indians, and inform  herself thoroughly-as to tho movements of the different tribes: just  when (h2 Stonies would come to trade  wilh the JPeigans, and when the Kool-  enais might bci expected to visit the  Bloods, and other kindred topics of  burning interest.  The Peigan scout and tho half-breed  interpreter of (he post were special  friends, and usually acted as umpires  in any bargaining difficulties. As  scarcely a day passed that she did not  add to her store of Indian, treasures  by exchanging penknives and sashes  and ribbons' for porcupine head-dresses' and fire-pouches and charms, their  services were often in demand. The  disappearance of various articles of  civilized and .luxurious' childish apparel simultaneously with the appearand of evil-:mslling Indian trophies  was the cause of much woe to Airs.  Eviston.  "What can Jack want with them?"  she would ask her husband plaintively.  "I can't go around the corner of the  shaok but 1 see some dreadful-looking  Indian hanging over tho inclosure and  dangling an embroidered beltoracou-  stick or a bead charm before Jack, who  seems porfecly fascinated with the  horrid things. And how she ever  nukes- thsm undeistand passes my  comprehension. But .she seems to  talk their impossible language quite  intelligibly, and it is really very convenient when thsy coma around with  berries and things, and Doyle happens  lo be' away. Bui I wish she -would  study her arithmetic."  TO be Continued.  CHAPTER  VII.  (/Concluded.)  We had all been warned to appear  before the magistrates upon the Thursday," but when the Thursday came  there was no occasion for our testimony. A higher Judge had taken the  matter in1 hand, and , Jefferson Hope  had been summoned 'before a tribunal  where strict justice would be r. -ted  out to him. On the very night aiter  his capture the aneurism, burst, and  be was found in the morning stretched  upon the floor of tho cell, with a placid  smile upon his face, as though he had  been able in his dying moments to lqok  back upon a useful life and on work  well done.      .  "Gregson and Lestrade will be wild  about his death/' Holmes remarked, as  we chatted it over , next evening.  "Where will' their grand advertisement be now?"    '  "I don't see that they had.much to  do with his capture," I answered.   ���������  "What you do in this world is a  matter of no consequence," .returned  my companion bitterly, "The question is, what can you mako people believe that you have done? Never  mind," he continued,, more brightly,  after a pause, "I would not have missed the investigation for anything.  There has been no better case within  my -recollection. "Simple as it was,  there were several most instructive,  points, about  it:**  "Simple I" I ejaculated.  "Well, really, it can; hardly ,be described ias otherwise,". said'Sherlock  Holmes, smiling at my surprise. "The  proof of its intrinsic simplicity is that  without any help, save a few very  ordinary deductions, 1 was able to lay  ray hand upon ��������� the criminal within  three, days."  "That is true," said I.  "1 have already explained to you  that what is out of the common is  usually a guide rather than a hindrance. In solving a problem of this  sort, the grand thing is to be able to  reason backward. That is a very  useful accomplishment , and a very  easy one, but people do not practice  it much. In the every-day affairs of  life it is more useful to reason forward  and so the other comes to bo neglected. There are fifty, who can reason  synthetically for one who can, reason  analytically." ���������"',.'  "1 confess," said I, "that I do not  quite follow you." '-'���������'..  "1 hardly expected that you would.  Let me see if I can make it clear.  Most people, if you describe a train of  events to them, will tell you what the  result would be. They can put those  events together in their minds, and  argue from them ��������� that something will  come to pass. There/are few people,  however, if you told' them a result,  would be able to evolve from their own  inner consciousness what the steps  were which led up to that result.  This power is what I mean when I  talk of reasoning backward, or analytically."  "I understand," said-.1.  "Now, this was a case in which you  were given the result'and had to find  everything else for yourself. Now,  let mo endeavor to show you tho different steps in my reasoning. To begin at the beginning. I approached  the house, as you know, on foot, and  with my mind entirely free from all  impressions. I naturally, began by examining the road-way, and there, as  I have already explained to youi, I saw  clearly the marks of a cab, which, I  ascertained by inquiry, must have been  ihero during the night. I satisfied  myself that it was a cab, and not,, a  private carriage, by tho narrow gauge  of the wheels. The ordinary London  growler is considerably less wido than  a gentleman's brougham.  "This was the first point gained. I  then walked slowly down tho garden  path, which happened to bo composed  of a clay soil, i>eculiarly suitable for  taking impressions. No doubt it appeared to you to bo a mere trampled  lino of slush, but to my trained eyes  every mark upon its surface had a  meaning. There is no branch of detective science which is so important  and so much neglected as the art of  tracing footsteps. Happily, I have  always laid great stress upon it, and  much practice has made it second nature to me. I saw the heavy footmarks of the constables, but I saw  also the tracks of the two men who  had first passed through the garden.  It was easy to tell that they had been  before the others, because in places  their marks had been entirely obliterated by the others coming upon the lop  of them. In- this way, my second link  was formed, which told me that tho  nocturnal visitors wore two in number, one remarkable for his height, as  I calculated from the length of his  stride, and the other fashionably  dressed, to judge from the small and  elegant impression left by his boots.  "Oil entering the houso this last inference was confirmed. My well-booted man lay before me. The tall one,  then, had done the murder, if murder  there was. There wa3 no wound upon  the dead man's person, but the agitated expression upon his face assured me  that he had foreseen his fate before it  came upon him, Men who die from  heart disease or any sudden natural  cause never by any chance exhibit  agitation upon their features. Having sniffed the dead man's lips, 1 detected a slightly sour smell, and I  came to the conclusion that he had had  poison forced upon him. Again, I argued that it had been forced upon  him, from the haired and fear expressed upon his face. By the" method of  exclusion' I had arrived at this result,  for no other hypothesis would meet the  facts. Do ��������� not imagine that it was a,  very unheard-of idea. The forcible  administration of poison is by no  means a now thing in criminal annals.  Thei cases of Dolsky, in Odessa, and of  Leturier, in Montpellier, <will occur at  once to any  toxicologist.  "And now came the great question  as to the reason why. llobbery had  not been the object of the murder, for  nothing was taken. Was it politics,  then, or was it a woman ? That was  tho. question which confronted me. I  was inclined from the first to the latter supposition, Political assassins  are only too glad to do their work and  to fly. This murder had, on the contrary, been done (most deliberately,  and the perpetrator had left bis tracks  all over the room, showing lhat he had  been there all the time. It must have  been a private wrong, and not a i>ol i-  tical one, which called for such a  methodical revenge. When (he inscription was discovered upon the wall  I was more inclined than ever to my  opinion., The thing was too evidently  a blind. ; When tho ring was found,  however, it settled the question. Clearly the murder had used it to remind  hisi victim of soine dead or absent woman. It- was at this point that J asked Gregson whether he had inquired in  bis telegram to Cleveland as to any  particular point in Mr. Drebber's former, career. He answered, you remember, in :the negative.  "I then proceeded to make a careful examination of the room, which  confirmed me in my opinion as to the  murderer's height, and furnished me  with 'the additional detail as to the  Triebinopoly cigar and the length of  his nails. I had already come to the  conclusion, since there was no signs  of -a- struggle, that the blood which  covered the floor had burst from the  muderer's nose in his excitement. I  could ���������perceive.'-,thai the track of blood  coincided with the (rack of his feet.  It. is seldom that any man,.unless he  is-.very full-blooded, breaks out in lhis  way through emotion, so I hazarded  the opinion that the criminal was probably .a robust" nnd ruddy-faced man.  Events proved that I had judged cor-  lelegraphed to the head of tho police  at Cleveland, liniiling my inquiry lo  the circumstances connected with (he  marriage of Enoch Drebber. The answer was conclusive. It mid me that  Drebber had already applied for the  protection o������ the law against an old  rival in love, named Jefferson Hope,  and that this same Hope was at present- in Europe. I knew now (hat I  held the. id no'to the myslery in my  hand, and all (hat remained was lo .secure lhe murderer.  "1 had already determined in my  own mind that tlie man who had walked into the house wilh Drebber was  none- other than the man who had  driven the cab. The marks in the  road showed me that the horse had  wandered oh in a way which it would  have been impossible had theje been  any one in charge of it. AVhere, then,  could the driver be, unless he were inside the house? Again, il is absurd lo  suppose, that any sane man would  carry (out a deliberate crime under the  very (ayes, as it were, ot a third person, who was sure to betray him. Lastly, supposing one man wished to dog  another through London, what better  means could he adopt than to turn  cab-driver? . All these considerations  led mo to the ii resistible conclusion  that Jefferson Hope was to be found  among the jarveys of the metroplis.  "If he had been one there was no  reason to believe that ho had ceased  to be. On the contrary, from his  point of view, any sudden change  would  be likely  to draw attention to  himself. He would probably, for a  time al least, continue to perform his  duties. There was no reason to suppose that he was going under an assumed name. Why should he change  hisi namo in a country where no one  knew his original ono { I therofore  organized my street-arab detective  corps, and sent them systematically to  every cab proprietor in London, until  they ferreted out the man that I  wanted. How well they succeeded and  how quickly I took advantage of it  are still fresh in your recollection. Tho  murder of Stangerson was an incident  which was entirely unexpected, but  which could hardly in any case have  beesn prevented. Through it, as you  know, 1 camo into possession of lhe  pills, the existence of which I had already surmised, you see, the whole  thing is a chain of logical sequences  without a break or flaw."  "It is wonderful 1" I cried, "Your  merits should be xmblicly recognized.  You should xiublish an account of the  case.     If you won't, I will for you."  "You may do what you like, doctor,"  he answered. "See here 1" ho continued, handing a paper over to me; "look  at this I"  It was the "Eoho'"for tho day, and^  the paragraph to which he pointed was  devoted to tho case in question.  "Tho public," it said, "have lost a  sensational treat through the sudden  death of the man Hope, who was suspected of the murder of Mr. Enoch  Drebber and of Mr. Joseph Stangerson.  The details of the case will probably  never be known'now, though we are  informed upon good authority that'the  crime was the result of an old-standing and romantic feud, in which love  and Mormonism bore a part. II seems  that both the victims belonged, in  their younger days, to the Latter-Day  Saints, and Hope, the deceased prisoner, hails also from Salt Lake City. If  the case has had no other effect, il at  leasl 'brings out in tho most striking  manner the efficiency of our detective  police force, and will servo as a lesson  to all foreigners that thoy will do  wisely to sei-lla' their feuds at home,  aud not to carry them on to British  soil. It is an open secret that the  credit of this smart capture belongs  entirely to the well-known Scotland  Yaid officials, Messrs. Lestrade and  Gregson. ' .The man was apprehended, it appears, in the rooms of a  certain Mr. Sherlock Holmes, who has  himself, as an amateur, shown some  talent in the detective line, and who,  wilh such instructors, may hope in  time to attain to some degree of their  skill. II is expected that a testimonial of some sort will be presentod to  the lwo officers as a fitting recognition of their  services.''  'Didn't, I tell you .when we started ?" cried Sherlock Holmes, with a  laugh. "Thai's the result of all our  Study in Scarlet; to get them a testimonial 1"  "Never mind," I answered; "I have  all lhe facts in my journal, and Lhe  public shall know them. In the mean-  lime, you must mako yourself contented by the consciousness of success, like  the Hoinan miser���������  " 'Populus  me sibilat,  at mihi plaudo  Tp-se donni simul ac nummos conlemp-  lar in area.'"

Phosphorus friction ' matches have  been made for sixty-six years and no  satisfactory subslitule for tho yel.ow  chemical product which is the igniting  agency has been discovered. Some  Governments discourage . their manufacture on account of the danger io  which the persons making them are  exposed of contracting necrosis, or mor-  tiiication of the lower jaw. In .Russia the tax on lhe manufacture of  vellow phosphorus matcbes is so high  lhat they are being displaced by safety  matches. Holland and Belgium limit  ihe use of the chemical. Most consumers, however, want, a match that  in iy be ignited anywhero, and yellow  phosphoius is the best means of producing this result yet known. II was  hoped whjn red phosphorus was first  produced in 1815 that this innoxious  substance would take the place ofthe  poisonous clement, bulj it does not fill  the bill, though used with satisfactory  results in  the making of safety malch-  j'he evils* resulting from the use of  yellow phosphoius in match factories  have been particularly prevalent in  Ureal Britain, where the Government  has jusl issued a Blue Book containing the reports of Profs. Thorpe and  Oliver and Dr. Cunningham, who were  employed to investigate the subject,  'lhey s.iy the difficulty in the way of  preventing n.crcsis is that yellow  phosphoius is still required to produce  ih:; ���������'aliiki anywhere" matches whioh  the public seem to prefer. They do  not advise that the use of the dangerous el m. nt be prohibited, beciuso  Gieat Britain manufactures largely  for export and prohibition would merely divert this (ratio to other countries  but lhey suggest oerlain measures for  prevenling  tho disease.  They say that their investigation,  which has been extended to eleven  countiies, has revealed no evidence  th.it necrosis is contracted unless the  working people aro deoayed. They  advise that no persons with unsound  teeth be employed, (hat dentistry be  made compulsory, that the utmost  cleanliness of the premises where  milches are made be required and that  Great Britain follow tho oxample of  the Continent and America by substituting machinery for direol handling  in  lhe processes of manufacture.  The main value of these reports is  not (hat they tell much that is new,  but that, as the result of tho most  searching inquiry yeti made, lhey confirm and emphasize the belief already  cuircnt (hat. cleanliness, ventilation  and careful attention to the teeth are  an almost certain preventive of a serious disease that has brought much  suffeiing upon a large body of workmen.

Mr. Smith ia perhaps ono of  tho best known men in, the counly, aa  in addition lo being a practical farmer  ho rppressnls several agricultural implement companies. His family, consists of two estimable , daughters, l he  eldest being seventeen years of age.  To a correspondent of - the Brockville  Recorder wjuo rtcenlly called at Mr.  Smith's, Miss Minnie E. "Smith, the  eldest daughter, related the following  story:���������"Aboul two years ' ago I was  taken quite ill. I buoame pals and  languid, and if I undertook to do any  work about the houso, would easily  become terribly fatigued. 1 became,  subjsot to terrible sick headaches, and  my stomach became so weak that I  loathed tcod. My trouble was further  aggravated by weak spells, and, my  feet, winter or, summer, were as cold  as ice; in fact it seemed as if there  was no feeling in them. I tried several  kinds of medioine, but instead of heir*,  ing me I was growing weaker.. Ona day  in Maich, 181'8, my father brought home  a' box of Dr., Williams' Pinkr Pills.' I  immediately discontinued tho other  medicine and hegani taking tho pills,  I found that (hoy helped mo and four  more boxes were procured and by this  time I had finished them I was entirely well.

Their complexion uis pale  and waxy in appearance, troubled  with heart palpitation, headaches,  shortness of breath on the slightest '  exercise, faintnoss and other distressing symptoms which invariably lead  to a premature grave unless prompt  straps aro taken to bring about a natural condition of health. In this emergency no remedy yet discovered cam  supply the place of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills, which build aaiew the blood,  strengthen tho nerves and restore the  glow of IheaJlh to pale and sallow,  cheeks. They are oertain cure for all  troubles peculiar to lhe female system,  young or old. These Pills also oure such-  diseases as rheumatism, neuralgia,-  partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia,  St. Vitus' dance, nervous headache,  nervous prostration, the after effects  of la grippe, influenza and severe colds  diseases depending on humors in the  blood, such a^ scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc. Do not be persuaded to ac-  cepl any imitation, no matter what the  dealer may say who offers it.

DYING BY WHOLESALE.  .".lrfiil  Storl.cs of starvation   In a Kusslau  1'iovlncc.  A despatch to the London Telegraph  from SI. Petersburg says lhat the Province of Kason, which is inhabited  chiefly by Tartars, is in a condition of  unrest, which is likely to result in a  bad outbreak against the Governm'ent.  M. Goremykin, Minister of' the Interior, has started post-hasto to visit the  district. The situation is the outcome of the terrible famine. Everything has been eaten, including cattle which themselves had died of starvation. Tho people now have only  two meals weekly, and are dwelling in  half-ruined huts, parts of tho roofs and  wood-work of whioh have been used  for  fuel.  The sole occupation of the people is  burying their feliows, who are dying  rapidly of typhus fever. Private benevolence is doing what it can, but it  can do but little to relieve tho distress.  Government aid was delayed owing to  lhe roads being blocked. In many  cases peas? n Is have gone a dozen  versts to obtain bread, and some of  them have died on Ike way. The peasants in some villages attacked the local  authorities, demanding bread, and then  assailed the police. Tho administration at St. Petersburg thereupon decided that energelic measures were necessary to quell tho trouble. Large quantities of corn wore transported by express trains and distributed among the  sufferers. Sanitary detachments of tho  lied Cross Society were sent to combat  the typhus and scurvy, but us soon as  tho Bed Cross people a'rrived the Tartars, who are Mohammedans, spread  rumours that lhey had come lo take  advantage of the misery to compel the  Mohammedans to be baptized into the  Orthodox faith. The Mohammedan  priests fostered this idea. Then tho  rage of the people rose, and they stoned the relief parlies and refused help  from them. . The officials are now trying to pacify them', and have summoned M. Soultanoff, tho Mufti of Orenburg, who will go to Kason to explain  the objects of the Government.  .

The Royal Geographic.il Society started (he subscription with ������23,000, and  these two donations, . amounting lo  S.15.>,0j0, assure lhe finances of the enterprise. It is not at all unlikely  that the fund will be increased lo al  '--leasL 3200,000, which is the amount (he  society desired lo raise. At any rate,  a .sufficient sum' is already secured to  enable England to co-operate with the  finely equipped Geim.in expedition  which will enter the Antarctic field  next season under the command of the  ������ C '. distinguished Greenland explorer, Dr.  Erich von Drygalski, whose writings  on Arctic glaciers are conceded to bo  the most authoritative "on that topic.  Scientific societies of Great Bjitain  and Germany have been planning  . since 1895 for this renewal, of Antarctic '--exploration on a scale so iargc as  to talce jjart of- the world out of the  realm of the unknown. A year ago  last month the German Commission  met at Leipzig and adopted the plan  of exploration which Drygalski will  set about carrying out next year. It  is probably  ihe  MOST. THOROUGH SCHEME  of polar investigation ever devised.  The British experts fully approve of  the German programme, and instead  of working independently on lines of  their own they will join the Germans  iu carrying out their ideas of what is  best to be done.in Antarctic exploration. This does not m'ean that they  will occupy exactly the same field, but  that lhey will have the same scientific  programme in view. Sir Clements  Markka in, President of the Royal Geographical Society, has distinctly announced since Mr. Langstaffs gift assured the sending of a British expedition that (he British vessel will' cooperate with (he German expedition.  "Tho fact that (he lwo expeditions will  be engaged in work on the same lines  .gives additional interest und imparlance to the German plan of action, of  which the following' are the leadiug  features:  The Drygalski expedition proposes lo  -sail about the beginning of August,  1900, and to return in June, 1902, an  absence from homo of nearly two  years. The exploring steamer will  carry twenty-five men,' of whom five  a geographer, geologist, biologist, observer of magnetic phenomena and  physician, will compose (he scientific  staff. There will be five ship's of-  lieers, including two engineers, and  , fifteen men in the crew. The purpose  is to winter on Victoria Land, discovered by Ross, fifty-eight years ago, and  the. nearest approach to "the Soulh  Pole yet made ; in the southern spring  of 1901, to.advance over the ice of Victoria Land by sledges toward (he  Soulh Pole; in the summer and early  autumt lo fix the location of the south  magnetic pole, and if possible lo explore the west coast of Victoria Land,  which has not yet been visited, and  later in the same season to start northward for hom'e.  The advance into the Antarctic area  will be randa on, the meridian of  KERGTJELEN ISLAND, ���������-  whose advantages for this purpose are  behoved'to be that no a I tack upon the  south polar regions has yet been mado  along this line; that the magnetic  work of the expedition may be directly connected with (he records at the  observatory al Melbourne and the  tropical observatory at Mauritius;  that (he oceanograpliic.il work will  continue that done by the Gazelle  deep-sea expedition and to bo dono by  the Chun expedition now afloat; and,  further, what is known of (he ice conditions in those -waters justifies, the expectation that they will be.favorable  for navigation south of tho Korguelen  for  (he next year or  two.      ���������  During the journey to Victoria Land  the expedition will endeavor definitely  fo locate the coasts of all lands discovered,; to collect geological specimens from them and from the masses  of earth found on drift ice, study the  origin and structure of, the drift ice  and the sea as to its depth, temperature, chemical conditions and organic  life, colleen plankton, or, .ocean'organisms-, peculiar to the surface waters for  the study or.surface currents and take  deep sen temperatures to determine  the origin of (he.deep sea currents tha t  emerge from the Antarctic area into  th������ open oceans; regular magnetic ob-'  servations wiil be "made on board ship  and also, on land and ice when opportunity occurs., and meteorological observations wW also be a part of (lie  regular .routine.

'Cosily  the    habit   as   thy  purse can  buy  ilul not expressed  in fancy ; rich, not  gaudy,  For the apparel oft proclaims' the  man."  Those words' were written years ago,  yet they,apply with equal truth to the  presenl day, and the advice contained  in Ikem should not be ignored. If we  followed Nature's laws a Utile more  closely, and were not so prone to var-"  iety of costume, the result would be a  more' harmonious whole than is some-  limes presented lo view.  Nature repeats herself. 'The peacock does nol exchange plumage, with  the jay, the canary with the robin,  cowslips do nol adopt the hue of Lhe  biue-bcll���������yet nothing in animal nor  vegetable life is ever found .precisely  in duplicate. We, also, remain unchanged in form and coloring, except  as the hand of Time presses on us with  gradual touches. By what law, therefore, do we appear in red or blue,, in  green or brown, in violet or yellow ?  Never can a woman be well dressed  until she blends her toilelle lo be the  complement of her form and color. Is  she tall or short, slender or square,  blonde or brunette? These points  should be well impressed on her mind  as the foundation on which to raise the  superstructure of costume.  Tho owner of a long thin face poises  over il a conical hat; a short square  woman plants a flat mushroom ou her  head ; a tall girl, with sloping shoulders chooses a flowing robeN; a round,  fat lady wears a yoked blouse with  waist-belt and high sleeves to detract  from her height and accentuate 'her  stoutness. '  As to color���������to harmonize with the  complexion is the. last thought that  presents itself as desirable I Be the  approved color moss-green, crushed-  strawberry, Russian yellow, or turquoise-blue, it will be worn by a nia-  jority of women who must be fashionable if naught else. What a pity this  is! Whj should we create a dame,  dubbed Fashion, and blindly follow her  caprices when Dame Nature beckons us  with alluring finger ?  During tho last fifty years. Art and  Science have made great strides; our  houses and our gowns aro immeasurably superior to Lhose of our forefathers. They bought heavy furniture for  their rooms, silks lhat would wear  long for their wives ,and daughters.  Our furniture combines grace, of form  and skill of workmanship with its utility ; we perfer our gowns less costly  in fabric and more frequently renewed. Science has combined with Art  in mixture of colors, of which, when  perfected, we are offered such a  bountiful supply lhat if a woman is  not well dressed, she alone is to blame.  Most women have a certain sum on,  which to dress, and when this sum is  very small, the difficulty of presenting a good appearance is enhanced a  hundredfold. Here      Shakespeare's  advice, comes in as warning���������because  "Ihe appearel oft proclaims the man,"  il is a duty to dross as well as possible,  and this good effect is nol so dependent on the money expended to bring  it about as mighl at first appear.  Forethought and taste are essential.  Wherher we spend 310. or S50, on a  gown, let us first select a color becoming to our complexion,' and then a  style of make in harmony with our  form. . A girl often sees a friend in  a becoming costume, and does nol rest  until sho obtains a similar one for  herself, but is disappointed ;,tke result  is not so favorable, the simple reason  being the wearers are unlike.  Nothing is more true than the saying. "Fine feathers make fine birds," I  yet when the feathers are unbecoming j  to the wearer, how discordant to the I  eye are her looks! The texture of al  gown may be fine, its adjuncts cost ly, |  but unless the, whole harmonizes wilh !  the. wearer, the eye. and taste aro of-  fenided.  The consciousness of being well-  dressed gives a woman. more social  courage, than be.nuly or talent, wheth-  or.the gown, be of costly silk or simple  muslin; if it becomes the wearer she  is "well-dressed,'' and armed with  this impression, as conveyed to her by  tlio' glances of those-she meets, sho is  the better.fitted to battle with social  emergencies. A smile of contempt is  raised when a woman of middle age  attires herself in the, robes designed  for "sweet- seventeen;" a look  amusement- crosses our face when a  very stout dame encases herself in  the lightest of garments; yet these  same ladies would obtain, admiration  were their costumes selected to suit  their years and their figures.  ..It may seem.wrong to-place the art  of dressing on so high a pedestal.  Many will declare our time might be  better employed than in the study of  our toilettes; yet as clothes are necessary to us, and the color, form and  cost of them a matter which' affects  others as well as ourselves, it is a  duty to select them with due care. A  little more, thought expended at the  .beginning,, will-.Kave.:tirue..and .money  Yin the end, in addition to-securing an  harmonious result.; and our dress being our visible/self, surely demands  proper attention.  ORIGIN   OF  THE WALTZ.  The opinion most generally conceded  is that France received the waltz  from Germany toward the close of the  eighteenth century, and among many  beliefs this contains the most truth;  but the justice of attributing to Germanic influence the renaissance ot the  waltz in France, does not of necessity  verify the statement that it had itu  origin in Germany.  Like everything else that touches  humanity, where nothing is born spontaneously but everything is the product'of a series -of successive evolutions, the waltz did not emanate in its  present form from Lhe brain of a dancing master. Long before 17ti0, the  time when we find il first mentioned  under this name, its graceful curves  and cadences were displayed on the  village greens as well as in the golden  salons of palaces;'it had ils alternatives of vogue and neglect, its supporters and detractors.  The waltz, like many other secular  things, we find first in the Church,  where, in the midst of barbaric disorder, it sorves to trace the union between ancient civilization and that of  the middle ages. The sacred dance  of the pagans is preserved to a certain  point in Christian rites; it is transformed to a series of revolutions made  to the sound of the tambourine. St.  Isidore, Archbishop of Seville, born  about A.D. 580, was intrusted by the  Council or Toledo with the revision of  tho liturgy as it was then practiced  in the Roman Church, in which there  was a tambourine dance. The Council decided to adopt the Isidoria'n liturgy in all Spain, and it differed but  little from that used in other countries at that time. This rite, celebrated before the eighth century, when  the Moors first invaded. Spain, was  still celebrated by the Christians in the  seven churches of Toledo, which the  Moors abandoned after their capture  of the city, and was after' lhat  time called the Moorish rite.  , This was known and employed in  Provnce and Italy. The . tambourine  in use in this religious dance was called by St. Isidore -"moitie de symphonic," and evidently corresponded to  the instrument which, in the ancient  sacred dances, accompanied the flute,  a sort of bagpipe invention lwo_ cen-  luries B.C. And Ihus, as the religious  dance of the middle ages is allied to  the ancient sacred dance, so the waltz  is an evoluliou of this religious dance,  having passed through many changes  before arriving at its present form.  In the eleventh century, when the  Gregorian rite supplanted the Moorish  rite, the dance disappeared from the  Church. It appeared very quickly in  society under the name of carole, hi  word derived from the Latin caroler";  afterward under that of basse-danco,  in which the grand prelates, kings and  dignitaries did not disdain lo join,  composed of three parts, two very  slow and one mora lively.  The people���������and, at this time, all who  were not of the clergy or royally wero  the people���������used the latter part, called the tourdion, which, lighter and  'more lively, appealed Lo them, and, little by little, it became changed! In  Italy it was first -separated from the  rest under the name of romanesca, and  from there it passed to Provence and  southern Germany, but in each of thesa  countries il was diversified and developed according to the character of  the people.  In Provence it soon became the gail-  lard, and this name indicates the character of the transformation.  Five hundred years later they danced the volte, which was, in turn, a  transformation of the g.iillard. The  measure was ternary like the latter,  and might'be designated technically  thus: two steps, a skip, feet together, pause. The man first faced the  opposite couple, then skipped on the  left foot, turning the left shoulder toward them ; repeating this four times,  he again faced tho other dancers; as  for the lady, her movements were reduced to embracing as lightly as possible  Lhe neck of her" cavalier.  As can be seen at once, this dance  resembled the waltz in three ways. It  was danced in three time, it was Iho  first dance in which a turn was made,  and the first in which the dancer embraced his partner. The latter, in  fact, did nol touch the ground; tho  cavalier held her suspended wilh his  left arm as hn executed the four movements described above.    ...  At the court of Valois the volte was  a favorite dance, especially with Catherine de Medici, while Henry II.   was  charmed  ��������� with  the  Psalm' which   Cle-��������� ,.  ment Marot set to an air of the volte, |  thinking, perhaps, what came from the |  Church should go back to]the Church.)  The volte, as did later the \valtz; turned the heads of this court.  The Queen,  Marguerite.de Navarre, wife of Henry  among German customs, in its present form and name, placing it in high  society and making it known to foreigners. This was its introduction in  an opera by Vincent Martin, "Una  Cosa Vara," which, in 1787, dethroned,  at Vienna, the "Figaro" of Mozart,  '���������'our characters in this opera, Lubia,  Vita, Chita and Lilla, dressed in black  and rose color, danced on the stage the  first waltz.  Tho favorable reception of the opera  naturally drew the attention of society  to the dance, and under the name of  nosa vara it immediately became the  fashion, and shortly afterward assumed the name of waltz, by which it  Uus  been  known  ever  since.  Thus, from the tourdion of the aristocratic dance, transformed by thu  people, was born the loinanesoa, whicn  became, in France, the gaillard and  volte, ,and in Germany, through various stages, emerged at lust into the  waltz, and Lhis last avatar of the old  dance of the eleventh century seems  to be installed definitely and to have  fixed the fancy of the world.  Tho waltz has always had, and always will have, appreciation and opposition, but it has triumphed over all  and to-day its musical rhythm, so  charming and captivating, which Beethoven and Chopin disdained not to immortalize, is to be heard on every side.  "Tho ��������� Invitation to the Waltz," by  Weber, magnificently orchestrated by  Berlioz, is celebrated.' Of course, it  must be remembered that those waltzes were composed to be listened to  rather  lhan  to be danced.  Recently the classical .waltz has been  obscured by a newcomer of American  origin, which is called���������I do not know  why���������"The Boston." There is no  dance of that name in America, and if  one asks a young American for "un  tour de Boston" she does not know of  what you- speak. This is a very slow  and glissee waltz, in which the gyratory movement is rare ; in fact', produced only every eight or ten measures, and then slowly and almost insensibly.  On the other hand the waltz, as it  is danced in Germany, is very lively,  the gyrations very rapid and frequent.  The slower waltz has the advantage in that it admits of conversation,  is less monotonous lo walch, 'and causes less of "ces . vertiges et tournoi-  ments de tele," which so disturbed Iho  good Thoinol Arbeau.  In the same way that the costumes  and manners of the world change, tho  waltz, too, is evolutionized���������adapted to  the condilions surrounding it. "This  dance has dethroned more noble dances  ���������the pavane, gavotte and minuet. We  have not time enough now to learn  these complicated dances/ and the,  waltz may, in its turn, be supplanted  by something easier. Perhaps the future generations, entirely occupied in  other directions, will regard dancing  as a childish pastime, belonging lo  the barbarous days of their ancestors;  WEAK RULERS  Proa  Have  Very Seldom  Hot .nlod the  of i! .Vat on.
