"YOU CAH'T FOOL PARKER"  HOST' NOT SPECULATE,  But You  Can Jug Him���������A  Forger Arrested After a''Short; Reign.  '  jiommissibiiers' Employes Prohibited From Acquiring Claims.  J. Fred Hume, the minister of  giincs,   has   gazetted   his   latest  j to thc effect that gold commis-  is and their employes   shall not  [re  any   new   mining  interests.  fst of the order is as follows:  jtd commissioners, mining record-  Sod clerks and employes   under  l;cownected with thc administra-  i>f mineral claims, shall not be  Sd, under any circumstances, to  Stifc free miners' certificates, or to  See, directly or indirectly, in their  Ijame, or in the name of any per-  |r their own benefit, any mineral  is or any interest in any mineral  . of any kind whatsoever, under  Ip.visions of Chapter 135,186   or  J the Revised Statutes of British  *\bia, or any amendments of the  Sat forthwith every such person  Jrnake a statement to the depart-  ������bf mines showing what interest,  he has in such mineral claim,  A man who has been hanging around,  town for some days calling himself  H. A. Parker, has got himself into  trouble by signing other people's  nafnes to cheques arid cashing them.  '.: It appears that on Friday last he  sold one of $85 to Moore and Orando,  purporting to be signed, by D..B.Thomas, of Silverton. The next day  he sold another to the same parties for  the same amount, and one to Wester-  berg for ������66; Thomas was communicated with, by telephone,7 and he repudiated the signature. Parker: was  arrested promptly and Justice Lilly  sent him up for trial. The fellow, is  not an expert evidently, as in^the presence of Mr. Griffith he signed Thomas',  name to one of the cheques, and, endorsed it H. A-. Parker. It is reported  he had been cutting up similar capers  at Kaslo some time ago. If this is so,  he will at his trial have to breast the  whole business.  "Up in Sandon they are seriously  contemplating the driving of the great  long-distance  tunnel  which has been  talked of for years past,"   said James  Dennistoun Sword,  M.E:, who is just  back from  a trip through the Slocan.  VJohn M. Harris, the president of the  Reco company, is at tne head of the  movement, and he is now interesting  nimself in the formation of a syndicate with that end in yiew.   There is  no doubt as to the benefit of the work  if if is ever completed.   The project  has been discussed ever since the Slocan has been known, but the great cost  of the undertaking has prevented the  inauguration  of the enterprise.    The  Slocan is perhaps as well adapted to  long-distance development tunnels  as  any mining   country  on earth.     The  grades of the mountains up there are  something incredible,   and an  enormous percentage of depth is gained with  e-rcry loot of tunnel driven.  , "Mr. Harris purposes starting a 10.-  000-foot tunnel below Sandon   to cut  clean through the Noble Five mountain.   A maximum depth of 4,000 feet  would thus  be   gained.     Among the  ledges that would be tapped at   that  depth are the lodes of the Noble Five,  thc Payne, the Argo, the Last Chance  and the Reco.  "It is expected that with power the  tunnel could be driven at the rate of  from eight to. ten feet per day, for the  ground ii very easily worked. According to that estimate the tunnel could  be completed in a little more than  three years. It would revolutionize  mining in thc Slocan.  "The Whitewater Deep has.just completed its new power plant, furnished  by thc James Cooper Manufacturing  company," continued Mr. Sword. "It  is the most complete water-actuated  equipment in the province. The water  is brought 4,000 feet through a 10 inch  steel pipe, and as it has a head of 565,  feet, it produces between 300 and 400-  horse power. The air from the compressor is 'piped up the hill to the  tunnel, a distance of 4,000 feet through  a four-inch steel .tube pipe. The new  long distance7 tunnel on the Whitewater Deep has been started. It is expected to .catch the ledge-at a distance  of 2,000 feet, and at a verticaldepth of  between 700 and 800 feet below, the  celebrated Whitewater mine's lower  line."���������Rossland Miner. '.,'���������.  were elected : Patron, Hewitt Bostock,  M.P.; president, M. L. Grimmett; vice-  president, Thomas,Brown; secretary-  treasurer, Wm. W. Fallows; business  committee, Alex. Crawford, Robt. McDonald and W.G.Wilson; ice committee, A. E. Hall, J. G. Main and W.  Hood.  The membership fee .was fixed at  S12.50 for the season.  The club arranged with Mr. Hood to  fix the rink for the coming season and  to have it ready at the earliest possible  date. The meeting was very enthusiastic and a very good time is anticipated by the members.  The new association for the province  called the Kootenay Curling Association will be greatly beneficial to all  the clubs in the district, and will  create a friendly rivalry for the premier place. It will also tend to' bring  the clubs into closer union.  PERSONAL   MENTION.  Dr.   Milloy  weather.  is   slightly   under   the  W. Walters is now agent-general for  the province in England.  J. C. Harris the mining man has  gone to England for the winter.  Mrs. Riblet and daughters haye  returned from a lengthy visit ' in  Spokane.  Mr. Hickey returned from Spokane  Wednesday, where he had been visiting his family.  Mr. F. T. Kelly has returned from  his lengthy visit to the southern  states, looking none the worse for his  trip.  Messrs. R. Marpole, ��������� H.E. Beasley,  F. W. Peters and other C. P. R. magnates spent Monday night in the city  taking in the sights. About all the  news they had was that the Crow's  Nest section will be open for traffic on  the loth.  Lord Kitchener is not an Irishman.  THE EMILY EDITH.  Bcrnhardt-Walstein Concert Co.  A Silverton Property on Which  a Rich  Strike Has. Been Made.   .  The Bernhardt-Walstein Concert Co.  who are to appear in the Virginia hall,  Sandon, on the 21st inst., under the  auspices of the Brass Band, have met  crowded houses and enthusiastic audiences at every point in their tour.  Miss Walstein stands almost without  a rival as a violinist, and Madame  Walther's rendering of favorite ballads and songs brings forth round after  round of well-merited applause. They  are aecompanied by Miss Eschele  Man, who is a pianist of great ability,  and as an accompaniest is par excellence. !  All lovers of a really good evening's  entertainment ought not to miss the  opportunity of listeuing to the good  things promised by the Bernhardt-  Walstein Go.  A new strike has been made on the  Emily   Edith   mine   near  Silverton.  The work on No. 1 tunnel, which has  been pushed along  for the past   ten  months,'has' just opened up a body of  clean galena ore over two feet in width  and of high grade.   The strike is made  at  a distance of about" 600 feet, from  the mouth of the tunnel and about 320  feet below the surface.   The balance  of thc tunnel is in a good grade of concentrating ore with a large nuniber of  deposits of clean high grade galena,  which carries considerable copper.   In  the No. 2 tunnel,  100 feet lower than  No. 1, the work is now in 200 feet and  in good concentrating ore. - A contract  has been let to dri ve   this tunnel  a  further d'stance of 200 feet,aftcrwhich  it will be pushed forward to tap the  strike just made on the No. 1 tunnel.  The property is being opened up under  the care of E. Ramelmeyer, and a concentrator will be erected as soon as  the No. 2 tunnel roaches a point directly under the present strike in No. 1.  There are 14 men at work on thc property and the force will shortly be increased.  The general fallacy that Kord Kitchener was an Irishman seems to have  arisen from the fact that his father,  Colonel Kitchener, of the old 9th regiment, "The Holy Boys," purchased an  estate in Ireland during the fifties and  that young-Kitchener as a boy lived  for. some time in that island. As a  matter of fact, Lord Kitchener was  born on the 24th of June, 1850; in Leicestershire/ England, and comes of a  sturdy Saxon stock irom the English  midlands. This may be a disappointment to some, enthusiastic patriots  who have been pointing with pride to  the fact that for true genius one must  come from the Enierald Isle, but as  the Army arid Navy Gazette says in  his biography of the new warrior-peer,  cold facts, like figures, are stubborn  things. -Kitchener of Kartoum, and  Wolseley of Cairo, are both from 61 d  English midland families. ,'���������'  Tlie Antoine mine at McGuigan  shipped 15 tons this week.  The Wakefield has 37 men at work,  and will continue all winter.  The Whitew.uer Deep is to have a  1,800-foot tunnel and that at once.  The Grey Copper, one of the Good-  enough group, reports an important  'strike.  Geo. Sadro is foreman of the Trade  Dollar, that is likely to out to be a fine  property.  The Noble Five has three air drills  at work and , is driving over 20 feet of  tunnel a dav.  The Queen.Bess, of Three Forks,  shipped 42 tons of ore from that place  to Everett the past week.  Mr. R. W. Rathbone has  been  appointed manager of the Jackson mines. '  He was formerly manager of the Queen  Bess.  The Payne, shipped bv C. P. R., week ,  ending Nov. 7, 240 tons ; and by the K.  & S. last week, which was omitted, 100  tons.  A. Trcbilcock has the contract for  the 200-foot tunnel on the Canadian  group. He was formerly foreman of  that mine.  The Silvcrtonian says the Enterprise  at Silverton has the largest ore chute  known to mining men, but it does not  give the length that a comparison may  bo made with that of the Payne. The  paper says so far 1,600 tons of ore have  been taken from that mine.

It is given out that the Heutenant-  governor-in-eouncil has rescinded the  order whereby free miners may obtain  relief from forfeiture due to tho lapso  of a free miner's certificate, Thc original order, whieh was approved October 29,1897, provided that by making  proper affidavits and remitting 85 to  the minister of mines, ������' free miner,  whose certificate had expired, could  get a new license dating from the expiration of the previous one. By this  process claims were saved from forfeiture, unless in the meantime they  had been restaked by some other free  miner. The new order-in-council,  which will go into effect on November  15, rescinds the old regulation, and  does away with the possibility of relief  in case one's certificate expires.

'������MM fJdb  *#.<  The famous Lairibton diamond threw  back tho light from its many facets,  and strange, brilliant colors shot from  its depths. It was tho finest stone I  had ever set in  my life.  I was particularly pleased with my  design for the setting. No other  hand had touched it, and I felt that  the frame, so to speak, was worthy of  tho picture.  The ring, now that it was finished,  was fit oven to adorn tho hand of Lady  Gwendolen Forrest, the beauty and  heiress of the season. But I did not  envy young Lord Lambton his fiance;  in my own Nell I had a girl as good  and as pretty as any in tho land.  I was about to take the ring to Mr.  Nugent when Nell herself ran in. She  was my employer's daughter, and his  private house was. upstairs over tho  large showroom in Clifford street. It  was against all custom for Nell to como  down to my workshop, for her father  disapproved our engagement. But today she had not been able to resist  the temptation of having a peep at the  Lambton diamond. >  kl'ust, a3' she had slipped it on her  finger, and was dancing about twisting  hor hand, that the marvelous stone  might catch the light, the door opened  and Mr. Nugent entered. I prepared  to defend Nell from a harsh repiimaud  butt none came. Her father appeared  oddly preoccupied, merely took the  ring from her, examined it earnestly,  and, snapping the lid of the case down  upon it, placed it in his pocket and  walked away.  Next day I was sitting- at work,  when I saw a hauson drive up, and  Lord Lambton jump out. He came  hastily into the room, which adjoined  the one where I was sitting and whore  Mr. Nugent was.  "Scoundrell" I heard him say, and  could .scarcely believe my ears. "You  thought to fool me easily by a false  stone; but I am as good a judge of  jewels aa you are. You are a thief,  sir I' What have you done with the  diamond  I intrusted to you ?"  Mr. Nugent answered in a lower  .voice. What he said, could not have  ma.de any great impression upon Lord  Lambton, however, for he impatiently  interrupted, and at last an ominous  threat concerning the "police" leach-  ed my ears. '  I saX still. 1 understood very well  that Lord Lambton had deliberately accused my employer of trying to palm  off upon him an imitation diamond, yet  t knew that I had set the true stone  dud delivered ,it to Mr. Nugent only  yesterday. -.���������-'��������� ' ������������������'���������.'���������'  .' My employer himself . was" a skilled  workman, though not a good designer,  and in the time that had elapsed between iny handing him the ring and  his .-transferring it to the owner he  could have removed the stone and replaced it by another, But for such a  bold trick to succeed the imitation must  be magnificently made, and the original diamond must have been carefully measured.  I had never known that Mr. Nugent  kept, any false gems about the place,  and besides was it likely that a man in  his position would care to run so terrible a risk? Still, I could not help  remembering how haggard arid irritable he had been of late, and the keen  interest that he took in the racing intelligence.  ������������������..'���������,,.  As I thus speculated on tne astounding, accusation. Mr. Nugent himself  opened the door of the workroom. He  looked keenly at me as if wondering  it it wbuld.be safe to trust me.,  "Did you hear anything of what  passed in the next room?" he .questioned.  I admitted that I had.  "Of, course, I shall be triumphantly  acquitted," he announced, clearing his  throat huskily as he spoke. "Still,  Lord. Lambton can make things disagreeable. And look here, Wade, I  haven't always been as friendly to you  as I might, but I can trust you. You'll  be an important witness. Do what  you can for mo, for tho girl's sake."  The words sounded strange, but i  was given no time to answer, for at  that moment Lord Lambton returned  with two Scotland Yard men. My  employer was given into custody and  taken to the police .station to be charged, the defectives, remaining to search  the promises.  Mr.' Nugent being a widower, with  only ono child, thc management of tlie  business practically devolved'on .me,  as tho detectives ransacked the place,'  they put many questions to me as to  where the stones were kept. The safes  were all pointed out to them, but thoy  seemed disappointed with thoir operations.  Late  in   the  evening   (hey  came   to  me in the workroom, and, holding out,  the   ring    that   I   had made for Lord  Lambton,   one  of  them   said:  "This is your work, we'.understand.  Is that  the stone you set?"  I glanced at it, but I only replied:  "I don't call myself an expert in precious stones, and all I can say is that  this one precisely resmebles in size  shape and appearance the one given  me to set.    .   ���������   ���������        ���������  While this statement was practically true, that one glance had been  enough to show me that I was not  looking at the Lambton diamond.  The detectives left, saying that I  would have to.tell all I knew in the  witness box, and then, just as I was  about to lock up the place for the night,  Nell came in. It was the first time she  had let me see her since her father  had been taken away,  The face which I thought the sweetest on  earth was marble white, and  thero    were  dark shadows  under the  lashes.  "There's something I must say to  you," sho panted, "something I've been  wild to say all day, lest it should ho  too late, but I dared not let anyone  suspect. A month ago father confided to me lha,t he had lost a great deal  of 'money, and ho showed me how to  open a secret -drawer in his Chippen-  dalo bureau. 'If ever anything happens to me,' lie said, 'don't lose a moment, but look into this drawer ;������throw  away everything- that you will find in  tho left-hand partition, and keep what  may be in the right.' "  II.  Together vie ransacked tho old bureau, arid at length Nell touched the  spring which opened .tho secret drawer. I drew in my breath sharply, for  the light of the candle which I held  struck out a- gleain from a pile of exquisitely made false stones, which lay  in a partition on the left hand, while  on the Tight vas tho Lambton diamond.  Involuntarily I betrayed the dreadful nature ot lhe discovery by an exclamation, for, left to herself. Nell  would not have understood. But she  was quick to comprehend, and realizing  the worst sh������ swayed, staggering backward.  "My poor  father," she moaned, as I  held her.   "He ia ruined forever���������and  I,   too.      The daughter  of a convicted  thief is no til wife for an honest man."  "My darling, you are a wife  for    a  king, and aa for your father, I swear  to you that t will save him yet."  "You���������you cannot."  "I tell you. that 1 can and will." For  even  as  I sjoke  an   idea  had flashed  into my head which startled me by its  audacity.   In a moment 1 had thought  out every detail-  I made up the stones, Lambton diamond and aLl, into a packet, carefully  closing the secret drawer, and contriving to get away without being seen,  and went straight to my brother's house  in Kent, managing to avoid the service  of a subpoena. Thus I was not present at the police court proceedings,  which would have meant ruin for my  plan.  Mr. Nugent was committed for trial,  and meanwhile 1 stayed in the country, working: each night in locked room,  with the tools I had brought with me,  until tho gray dawn filtered under my  closed  shutters.  When I saw my old employer in the  dock at. the trial I was shocked at the  ghastly change which had conic over  him.      p  The evidence at. first went steadily  against him.. Lord Lambton swore  that the stone in the ring was not his  diamond. One expert testified that  not only toi the si ono he now saw  not the Lawbtoii diamond, but was not  ;i genuine joivel at all, but a marvelous  imitation. <Vnolher was not so positive. He looked at (he gem through  his glass, taming it (his way and that,  declaring that in all his e:\perience he  had ne.-or scon a false stone so cleverly  executed as rhis. Indeed, he was not  prepared to swear that it was false.  This was the. f hsl ray of doubt which  had been tluowu by the evidence upon  Mr. Nugent's guilt; and then I went  into the bos, ,1 was oool now, for the  game I had determined on had cost me  many a qualm of conscience. But I  had no intention of cheating Lord  Lambton, swearing falsely, or tarnishing my personal honor.   c. '   '  The preliminary question of tho prosecuting counsel brought out the fact  that I had designed the ring's setting,  and done aLl the work upon it.  "What sotTt of stone was it your employer gave you to set ?'Vwas the.next  question.'  "An extremely, valuable white diamond," "I-.'replied.,-������������������.  "Do you sM-oar that you set the genuine stone, and delivered tho ring when  finished to the prisoner-'?'  "I do." .',  "Do you consider it possible that  stone might have been taken out arid  imitation  one substituted,?"  "Certainly. But I could-tell whether the ring- had been, tampered with  since  it lett my  hands."  "Take this then,'examine it, and inform the <purt if that is the stone  you set."  The ring was handed to me, and a  hush fell itjion ihe court. The kind  of lull which denotes that a vital point  in a case has been reached.  I put my land in my waistcoat pocket for my jeweler's glass, and the  sharpest ey������ could not have seen that  I also drew forth a new ring, made in  the secret hours of the night���������an exact counterpart of the other, save,that  it contained the real Lambton diamond.  I pretended to examine the imitation with great care while all eyes were  fixed upon inc. At length I returned  the glass to my pocket, and with it  the ring with the false, stone. 1 could  hear my own heart beating, but, handing the court usher the new ring, I  said firmly, in reply to the snappish  "Well?" of the prosecuting counsel: ;  "I swear unhesitatingly (hat the setting of thi* ring bus not been tampered with, iJiul tliat this is tho genuine  diamond which was given mo-to set."  A rustle went;round the court; the  doubting expert pricked up his ears,  the proscou.ting counsel, with Lord  Lambton and tho treasury . solicitor,  were whispering over  the ring.  "M'lud," .Haid the counsel, "I ask  permission  to recall the expert.'"  I stepped out of the box and the  expert stepped in. The new ring was  put into his band, a friendly ray of.  sunshine lighting up the jewel.  "This is very remarkable," he said  at last. "It's the first time I have  ever made a mistake. This stone is  genuine.   I cannot  doubt  it."  And so the prisoner was free; but  when .the verdict of "Not guilty" was  pronounced, a faint groan echoed it,  and a dead man. was taken from the  dock. A spasm', of the heart had proved fatal.  "Ah, Mr.- Wade I" he exclaimed, "I  haven't seen you since that very mysterious case of mine. Do you know I  have always since thought of you���������  as���������a very���������clover man ?"  "Thank you," I said quietly. "Will  you allow me, my lord, to present you  to my wife���������thc only daughter of the  late Mr. Nugent." >  Lord Lambton raised his hat, looked  keenly at pretty Nell, shook hands  with  us both,  and  murmured:  "Ah,  I understand 1"  Six months later Nell and I were  married. On our honeymoon we were  walking in a. lane near Ilfracombe,  when we came face to face with Lord  Lambton, "Who  was stopping with his  ITEMS OF INTEREST.  .4, Tew I'arauranh, Wlil<-:i   Will   Ite Found  Worth Itc.'Mlln.uv  Hams which aro packed in pulverized  charcoal will continue fresh for from  five to ten years. ,  Nine-tenths of the finest tea raised in China, is sold and consumed in  Russia. - Most of tho next best grade  finds a market in Ureal, Britain.

KNITTING STOCKINGS.  To knit stockings is not so much a  matter of economy as formerly; for  good stockings can now be bought at  very reasonable prices. Rut it may  still save something and the handwork often wears better than the  woven. Many a girl and woman is  glad of an occupation for spare moments, and there aro persons (hat still  have their knitting done by hand; and  a gift of one's own manufacture is  more appreciated, and certainly more  suggestive of thought and affection  on the part of tho givor, than what  she has simply bought.  As many of tho directions in the  manuals for knitting are very long  and not often easily comprehended,  even by an experienced person, the  object of the present article is to give  a few practical directions on the subject that can be followed without the  aid of a teacher.  The number of stitches cast on varies wilh the size of the stocking and  the, fineness of the thread and needles.  Thirty stitches on each needle is about  an average for a good-sized child with  a stout leg or a grown person of ordin-  aryC figure, narrowing to seventy-five  at th������ ankle Ls reached. If ono stitch  Is put on extra and purled, that is,  knitted as a seam stitch, oil the way  down, the narrowing should be on  either side of that. "At the top a  band should be knitted from half a  finger to a finger in length, by knitting and purling two alternately, before the plain knitting is begun. It  is simpler to oast tho stitches upon  ono needle and (hen to divide.  More stitches aro required for  cotton   than for woolen  hoso.  Three balls of knitting-cotton will  make two pairs of-socks.  Two different heels are as follows:  First. When the heel is reached, divide  the stocking in two, knit one-half  plain and back till about half a finger  in length ; take the side in which the  one stitch has been purled all the  way dowu; (hen narrow on the right  side on either side of this seam stitch  till about twenty stitches remain;  knit to the middle on the right side,  double the needles together, and bind  off the stitches on the wrong side;  t<ike up the stitches all around; slip  four or five off tlie front needles at  o'ich side on to the needles of the heel,  narrow the two stitches before these  four, every other row, till the same  number of stitches are on as at the  ankle; then knit plain till it is time  to narrow for the toe.  l?or the second heel, divide the stocking into two, as before, and knit, one  side a little more than half a finger.  In length ;'divide, this into three parts;  knit back and forth, slipping a stitch  on to the next at the first part ofthe  middle division, one side at the plain  row, the next at the purled row, until  all, the stitches at the side divisions  have been slipped over ; knit across  and take up the stitches on the side,  knit around and take up7 on the other  side; transfer two stitches from the  front needle at either .end, narrow every other row, the two stitches before  these two, until, as in the other directions, there are nearly or quite the  same number of stitches on the needles as at the beginning of the heel. The  first is sloped to tlie foot, but has a  seam; the second heel.is more square.  ��������� For the toe, narrow every "seventh  stitch, knit seven rows, narrow every  sixth row, knit six rows, and so on,  until but a few stitches remain on  each needle, when the yarn or cotton  should be broken Off, threaded In a  large darning.-���������"needle, run through  stitches, drawn up and fastened down  on the wrong side, or narrowed off by  knitting until two, stitches remain,  then turn : one stitch over the other,  pulling the thread through the; remaining'one, then fasten the thread.  A pretty-open-work, silk, stocking can  be made without this troublesome  heel. With fine needles put on one  hundred and thirteen stitches. Knit  for a short finger length, than knit  about the length of the needle plain,  next knit a row, dropping every alternate stitch.. Get some one to hold  tho needles, and pull the stocking carefully till the dropped stitches run  down as far as lhe ribbing,when each  ono should be fastened on the wrong  side.  Then narrow for the toe, ' as this  will make the stocking long enough  for a fancy stocking. It shapes itself to  the foot, and It should be worn over  a thin pair of stockings. It is'called  the "American" or "Railroad." This  knitting may be used for tidies and  other fancy knitting. :  over with melted butter; lay on a hot  broiler, and broil over a moderately  clear fire five minutes on each side,  turning them twice while cooking.

Children always want a reason for  ihe doing of the-simplest things, said  a mother the other day. Psychologists  say It is the claims of science working in the mind wh'on it begins Lo  question. To answer these childish inquiries is not always easy, as every one  knows, nor is it wise to discourage the  questionings. Sometimes it is the  simple little interrogations that are  hardest to give replies to, such as  "Why may 1 eat with my fork and not  not with my knife?" and "Why must  I take soup from the side of tho spoon,  Instead of from the end?" To this  last T have found that a practical illustration serves cost,, to show why," I  put the child beside some one else at  the table, and allow him to take his  soup or porridge from thc end of the  spoon. Of course, his elbow, extended  as brings the spoon in line with his  mouth, will jostle his neighbor or  will threaten to"do so. The cllld can  readily see that this is unpleasant, especially if some one will sit on his  other side and incommode him in the  same way. lie thus learns that the  comfort of other people at the table  is largely dependent upon his good behavior. If he has been taught from  Infancy lhat ho must try to make others happy, he can be persuaded to acquire manners that are'pleasing.  THE MUSHROOM, AS YOU LIKE IT.

Fifteen minutes before serving  drain and wipe the mushroom dry.  Season with half a teaspoonful of salt  and white pepper  mixed,  brush  them  FANS   NO LONGER FOR  USE.  Warm as the weather has been this  summer, fans have been in but little  use. It' seems as if the fan had entirely lost its usefulness and had become a  mere articlo of adornment. Apparently it is used no longer to cool the heated person who suffers from the sun's  rays.\ If, employed for such a purpose a big palm-leaf fan is used, and  as often as not it is a mari who swings  it, vigorously hoping to stir up a little cooling breeze.  The fan nowadays Is flirtatious, and  the flirtatious fan is ripe in winter. It  is used in tho ballroom after a'dance  and then more as an aid to coquetry  than for (he oitenslble purpose for  which it was devi'sed. It is a part of  evening dross, and an indispensable  part. It is not vigorously waved, for  it is too expensive an article to bear  such hard usage. Dainty and pretty  articles are I hose, and it is no uncommon thing for (hem to cost hundreds  of  dollars.  As a fad, however, the fan still  holds a place in woman's affoclions.  There is 'nothing that is so often collected by women. Fashionable dames  have a fancy for them, and there are  many rare collection*. The finest  private collections ot fans in the world  are owned by Queen . Victoria, the  Kmpi-oss of Russia, ex-Queen Labella  of Spain, who has over 000 specimens;  the Countess ot Paris, the,Countess of  Chamburn, Countess ot Granville,  Mme.

A gunner was fielding In the  "country." Tlie ball was hit high,in  the air Mn his direction. He ran backwards to Catch it, but misjudging it,  did not get his hands underneath. The  ball hit him plump on the top of his  pith helmet,' a regulation one. and  instead of bouncing off again, it'went  through, resting on his head inside.  His helmet was flattened somewhat  over his ears, and so ho caught the  ball! It Was rough oh', the batsman,  though the fieldsman, probably found  it rather hard.  \)  (\  ii  i  %  i)  1  n  a  ��������� ,>������  ft  ''A  'it  tl  r  ft  x  t������  'i  it  si  \  i  f  a-  w  \<  'it  i  n  i-  d  ���������n  is  s,  ������������.  i'e  n  ,a  3-  c-  S-  &'  ,'i  f  !$>l  y ij.  ���������,.������.-��������� i  i.������   ,-m.  :.**...

" I read somewhere once," said the  man of moderate means, " a story about  a man, compelled by circumstances to  eat corned beef when he would have  preferred chicken, who now and then  hung up in front of himself a picture  of a chicken, upon which he fixed his  eyes and his mind as'he ate, with the  result that when he had, eaten his fill  of corn beef he imagined that he had  really eaten chicken. I never doubted (his story, though I could not repeat the experience in my own case.  But I suppose that only goes to show  that a thing that will affect one man  a certain way may 'affect somebody  else very differently.   ���������  " After a protracted succession of  corned' beef and corresponding dinners I came to the conclusion that I  would liko a chicken, but there- were  reasons���������um���������m���������. Well, I finally compromised on a picture of a chicken,'and  I hung that up ovvr tho table, and  when 1 struck into the corned beef I  looked  up.   ,  " Well, do you know, it didn't work  with mo at all? Not a bit, I could  taste the corned beef just the same,  and it made my neck ache, and I came  pooty near choking myself,, too, looking .up; and so 1 gave it up finally.  nnd  stuck  to  the  corned beef.  " I imagine I'm as impressionable as  most folks, but it seems that 1 am not  easy to impress in this particular way,  and it was'all the greater disappointment-to; me because I had thought if  the chicken worked all right I might  enlarge'm.y bill of' fare in that way  in various directions. I had hoped  that some day 1 might bo able to substitute   pictures   for  food  altogether."  ���������ANTS PAY SPIDERS.  . We all know that certain species of  ants employ as slaves smaller insects  of their own kind. Others keep insects to milk as we do cows. But perhaps the most astonishing discovery of  all is the latest. one,-, that thero is in  Australia-a green ant which," though  very clever in the building' of its nest,  appears t to consider it an irksome  duty, and so employs another insect  to do this work for it. A small spider  is, therefore, trained to act as a servant in all things. The; green ants pay  the spiders for their labors in a' coin  that they enjoy. It ia by giving them  to eat a portion of the innumerable  little eggs that they, Lhe ants, lay.  This is a most agreeable arrangement  for all, man, included, as otherwise the  green ants would rival (he rabbils in  uverrunning Australia.  Is Hood's Sarsaparilla.

Toronto, Oct., 31.���������Newspapor despatches from Pekin, China, bring information to the effect that the Emperor is dying of Bright's Disease. He  is under the care of a famous French  physician, who asserts that the Emperor's complaint is "an incurable Kidney disease."  That is where tho famous French  physician  is mistaken.  There is no incurable Kidney disease.  Every disease of the Kidneys is curable. V'hey, like all other diseases,  yield readily to the proper medicines.  The experience of the past eitrht  years has shown conclusively, beyond  the shadow of a doubt, that there is  one remedy that will cure any case of  Kidney disease, no matter how severe,  no matter how Jong it has .run.  This , remedy is known throughout  .. the English-speaking world, to physicians and laymen alike, by the name  of Dodd's Kidney Pills. ������  When Dodd's Kidney Pills -were first  introduced, medical men vwere sceptical regarding their power to cure  Bright's Disease. Experiments were  made; in cases that had defied the. skill  of the most eminent medical men on  the American continent, cases that had  been given up as hopeless���������fatal. To  the astonishment of the medical men,  Dodd's Kidney Pills worked, a complete cure in each and every case.  Thenceforth they, ��������� were recognized as  the only known cure for diseases of  _ the Kidneys, including Bright's Disease and Diabetes.  Tills place they have held since, and  hold -.to-day. ' No other euro for these  diseases has ever been discovered, although .many worthless imitations of  Dodd's Kidney Pills have been placed  on the market.  If the,famous French physician, under whose care the' Chinese Emperor is,  would use Dodd's Kidney Pills in the'  Dase of his imperial patient, his recovery  would be  rapid  and certain.  W. Godwin, of Market Drayton,  writes to the "Lincolnshire Chronicle, April 2nd, 1S'J8, brom which wo  quote:  " As   the  phosphoric  acid  in  Thomas-  Phosphate is, presumably from its admixture with free lime, in an insoluble condition, and as it was a generally  accepted theory that plants can only a'b-  i>orb soluble substances by their roots,  1 hud some hesitation  in accepting it  as a reliable  manure,  and  I spent    a  day  last  autumn  among a number of  farms in North Staffordshire, and another in South Shropshire.   1 am bound  and  indeed  pleased,  to confess that I  was never more astonished in my iifo  than when noting its effect upon pastures, " clover roots and corn fields, especially  upon the  harsh, cold and almost intractable clay lands. The effect  in numerous cases was simply marvellous; poor pastures, after being dressed  with  it,   were   redolent  in  clovers  and  wild  vetch,    and    similar  fodder  plants.   One field, especially, of some  thirty acres, apparently poverty stricken  to a last degree, had been dressed  as to five acres -with; a ton of Alberts'  Thomas-Phosphate Powder, which was  ono sheet of beautiful white clover in  flower, fit   to mow, whilo the remainder of the field afforded scarcely a bite  of  wiry,  coarse  grass."      Mr. Godwin  further at considerable length described  root and wheat fields dressed with  this manure  as having withstood the  drought   and   yielding   splendidly.   He  concludes  that  genuine  Thomas-Phosphate Powder comes as a decided boon,  especially   as    its    effects   seem very  lusting.' In the same issue <of this paper, Mr. AVooley, of Salop, attested to  its wonderful value in bringing up an  old, worn-out farm, which hei had taken and which is now in capital condition. This is the farm which is' being  noticed in the English press as producr  ing 77 bushels ot! '60-pound;-'wheat  per  ncre from the free use of Thomas-Phosphate Powder. Still ii neither letter appears in this paper'from. Robert Eard-  ley, of Newark, who says it seems   to  carry the roots through the frost better, and he noticed the. good effects on  (lie following crops, the third year being   (he   most    surprising  the    wheat  crops  being  greener and  stronger all  through   the     season    where   it    was  used. . i ���������  u   P  C 914  EUTm'^bdkwl.S  LITTLE OIAMT TYPEWRITER--A rVallyiiracli'-nl  maohine and not>nnier������toi-.

The  Boulogne    tugs    havo  recently  been fitted with guns for firing aline  across, a vessel at sea, for the purpose  of    establishing      communication     by  means of a life-saving hawser. The tug  gets to windward of the vessel stranded  on  a lee shore;  and,  by  anchoring    a  short  distance  from  it,   is  enabled to  take off the crew.    On a level and sandy shore a stranded vessel may be hundreds of yards away, and in the teeth  of    b, gala  tfee rocket may not  reach j ;������  tho wreck.   The mode adopted by the j I������  Boulogne Humane    Society has    some : jg  manifest advantages;    for instance, it i ,'������  obviates having to pull a mati 200 or j;������  300 yards through the surf, with the i :g  prospect of    rescuing him more    dead 'l���������  than alive.    Another, point -in favor of  the   method  is   that  in   a  given s time  one    can    rescue      more   persons    by  it   than   by   the  use  of       a .'long-distance hawser.

To the present we have said nothing  about the investigation  of   the   conduct of Federal officials ; but there are  many reasons to show that constituted  as it is it must  prove a failure.    It  is necessary  because most damaging  ���������  reports have gone, and ate daily going,  to England   where the capital   must  come from to develop :the country,,if  it is to be developed.   With charges of  corruption pouring in arid officials and  friends of the   government   denying  them, it is hard to say just how the  matter stands; but a proper investigation clearing the government must be  made before capital returns.   William  Ogilvie, the commissioner appointed  to make the enquiry, ia in^many'respects a capable man, but the fact that  he is a Federal official must militate  against the value of his report, if it  clears the government and the  officials.   Beside* it is known that he is  not a lawyer and cannot sift evidence  ���������where legal points are involved, and  withal he has too many other duties  t������ give this proper attention, even if  he was a legal gentleman, and wholly  independent    of    the    government.  These facts show that no matter what  his report, may be it will not have the  effect of restoring confidence in England, to secure a return of the much  ���������desired capital to that section of country.   Under the circumstances the investigation cannot be regarded other  than an. expenditure of money without accomplishing   the   end   desired;  Had the matter   been placed in the  hands of a commission of judges or  other capable men, independent of the  government,   the   very same   finding  that Mr. Ogilvie ; will arrive at, would  have infinitely   more weight,   where  weight is especially desired.  and 115,047 agiiinst it. As nearly as  possible but 10 per cent, of thc possible vote went for prohibition, and  there are some temperance men who  say they should have prohibition on  that vote.  AT THE   HOTELS.

It is  now admitted on all hands that the  Klondyke is a failure/ or at least,  though it possesses some wealth, it is  not7 at all up to the representations  made of it. As a result of the disappointment several English capitalists  who thought "they knew a good thing  when they saw it," have been bitten;  and instead of placing the blame where  it properly belongs, some of them are  disposed to place it on the shoulders  of British Columbia. This is very unr  fair, it is worse, it is dishonorable and  dishonest. British Columbia mining  enterprises are no more connected  with the Klond) ke tha,n the Queen of  England is with the Liliputians. If  the association was intentional on the  part of these capitalists, the accusation would be like that of the wolf  when holding the lamb responsible for  a disturbance of the stream by- its ancestors. When, however, the.association is the result of ignorance of the  geography of the country, we cannot  help alvismg them to read up geographies before shelling- out more cash.  It is universally admitted, by mining  men ��������� who have operated in- all the  mining countries of tlie world, that  there are more chances for success and  lower for failure in the Slocan than in  any other part of the known mining  world. This is the lesson wc would  like English men t.o learn, and one  that would be .most'-serviceable to  them. ��������� .  One of cur confreres.jumps onto another for saying thc government will  have a. majority of one thc next session, alli-'ging that because the number  of representatives is even 38, this is  impossible. ��������� When the speaker is  taken oat the number is 37, and with  18,011 one side the other would have  ]9, or one of ii-i-najority; If7-tho nurn-  , ber'of representatives was odd, one of  a majority would be the impossibility.  The Ottawa Free Press lias read the  Globe out of the 'Liberal party. The  Winnipeg Freo Press has read the  Vancouver World out; an?l the Winnipeg Tribune has ruled the Free Press  out.

A Letter by "Metallurgist," Aspen, Colo.,  to the  Mining   and   Scientific  Press, San Francisco.  To the Editor,���������In an editorial in  the issue of Oct., 8th, 1898, you mention the "impracticability" of profitably treating an ore containing 35 ozs  silver, 14 per cent, lead and 35 per  cent. zinc. ' The impracticability of  treating such an ore is not as apparent  ��������� as the impossibility of marketing it;  and as your Utah subscriber requested  information concerning the treatment,  I -will state ��������� that such an ,ore can be  profitably treated if it is of such a  character that, by concentration, a  separate product sufficiently free from  iron and lead can be made .of the zinc  or*. The two products, silver-lead and  zinc, can then he smelted by the usual  methods.  Zinc ore, delivered at the smelter,  can be roasted and smelted in Mia-  , souii for less than 511.50 per tori. The  loss in smelting varies from 10 to 25  per ceet. of the metallic contents. The  Missouri-Kansas smeltcis lose about  J5 percent, in treating ores containing  bom 48 to 65 per cent. zinc. A* much  as 8 per cent, lead is not considered  detrimental to sine ores. Most of the  lead remains in the retortB either as  globules of lead or is absorbed by the  retorts. Lead does not alloy with with  ainc,_ and any lead that may find its  tray into the condensers can be separated from the zinc by refining..-.-,.'  The presence of iron in zinc ores  affects the process c-f distilling by adhering to the interior of the retorts,  thereby increasing their weight and  lessening their capacity. -Both1 lei.d  and iron may accumulate in the retorts to such an extent as to cause the  retorts to break oh account of their increased weight.���������:.-���������" ��������� ,  Tlie large percentage of loss in ex-.  . tracting zinc from its ores is du e to the  fact that, by the'methods-employed in  reducing the, ores, the metal must  necessarily pass through the stats of  ���������vapor. Zinc volatilizes at 1.200 deg.  centigrade, while the oxide of zinc,  the ore with which the retorts are  cKarged, reduces at 1,800 deg. centigrade ; the metal is therefore released  in the form of vapor from which it is  condensed; The loss in distilling is  then caused by : The 'escape of uncon-  densed zinc from the condensers ; absorption by the retorts; infiltration  :'- through the retorts (when new); breaking of the retorts; and unvolitized zinc  remaining in the retorts', due principally to insufficient roasting. Absorption by and infiltration .through the  Tetorts can be prevented by glazing  the interior of the retorts.  Marketing zinc ores is an entirely  different proposition from treating  ihem, and one which, in your issue of  Sept. 24th, 1898, "Miner" demonstrates  the impracticability of when the ores  are mined in the .western states.  Seventy-five per cent, of, the zinc ore  of the United States is produced in the  Missouri-Kansas district, and it is  estimated that the ore marketed there  averages 57 per cent. zinc. The smelters which treat these ores do not care  to purchase an ore that contains less  than 48 per cent, zinc and more than  S per cent iron. Penalties are also imposed upon lead��������� moisture, ''sand,"  baryta and other extraneous matter.  To be marketable an ore must, there-  ' fore^ be concentrated to meet the above  requirements. ,   ' ty> ;' '>':'."': "'" ��������� ;;������������������.'  Tbe. concentrates are purchased by  the smelting companies, who visit-the  ore bins and bid for the weekly output.  Thc price bid depends upon the demand for ore and not upon the market  price ol" metal; nor upon the.cpntents  of the ore.. The smelting, companies  assay the ore in order to ascertain the  limit to which they can bid, and put  the prioeas far below the limit as possible. The miner can-assay his ore if  he wishes, but he prefers hot to know  how'much lie must lose. The cost of  the assay would be only that much  more added to his loss. ;  There are thousands of tons of ore in  the abandoned ..ground, tailings piles  ������nd dumps of 'that district, wkich are  unmarketable on account of the high  ���������standard '.which the smelting companies have been able to maintain. As  long as thesn conditions continue to  exist the zinc ores of Colorado and  other western states will not" be in  j;reat demand.  IMPURE Bl.OOD.  Airs.

The mails had been transhipped. And  now the Kamschalkan, bracing herself  lo 1 lie (as>k, was rapidly leaving Tory  ..behind her, running directly into tho  teeth o������ a nor'-wester. The night fell  black and drizzly; ihe ship, without  ii.' stitch of canvas, and with her topmasts lowered, hurled on by theenor  tnous pressure of I lie uttering  pitched  her bow gallantly  advancing waves, ra~  --.--   ........wi   the  screw,  at the. vast.  ran up their sliding  bosoms until she nearly ^"^l  crest, quivered a moment up there <t  tint dizzy hoight, and then ph. gns  like a sea-mew or a porpo.se ^<������UK  the tons of boiling surf that cape  these leviathan rollers of the djeop. and  .sinking them off her shoulde18 in *  hiding fall of foam, .he d������������ed ���������������������  with dizzy vehemence to lhe bottom  of the vast aby*s which the i ising mass  had lefl behind it.

"Try a drop of my brandy,"  handing a flask. "You'll find it extra  good," he added, winking. "It came  out of the cellar of my last governor."  Mr. Crog, the steerage steward,  highly appreciated the brandy and the  joke.   They untied his tongue a little.  "I say .lijy    stiicl,. lowering his voice,  though  in   the  infernal  din  that was  filling     the      air      from      the    fearful      storm     without   and-  the  tie    and   racket    and   groaning  shrieking    within,     there was  chance of their being overheard  captain's in a   precious stew.

Thc boat was  precious nearly upset, and we could  hear them scolding as we bore away.  ���������Halloo, I say i Lodk out; you'll go  down  the  hatchway 1"  The Jewish-looking man, who bad  been sitting comfortably enough on  the huge coil of rope, was suddenly  pitched over head and heejs backwards  into, the water-way, and with another  roll described a graceful parabolic  curve, which landed him only a foot or  two short of the hatchway, with his  shoulder jam against the combing,  iwhere he came to an anchor. The steward ran forward and secured him. He  seem/id to be much shaken and alarmed.  log  he  the pa-  close   along-  thc   telegram  " There get down again into your  crib, and hold on tight with both hands.  Wliv, you've knocked your weather eye,  mid"look like death. Here, lake a swig  of your own reviver."  "Oh, it's nothing." said the other,  " Where's my  hat V  ln handing him the big wideawake,  (he steward took a good look at ,him.  "That's not tho man!" he muttered to .himself." "But he's, a.preeious  sharp-looking un, now, one gets a sight  of him." ' '    ,  Any observer would have agreed with  Mr. Ciog. The removal of the wideawake had revealed a most striking  head and physiognomy. A head with  an immense shock of carroty hair,  which was in a state of gieai disorder.  A forehead, squaie, icceding from great  ugly brows. Black, ken, Hashing eyes,  gathered inward, and completely ooy-  erned by. (hose brows. A long pale  faoe.every iineim������nr lolling of sdength  and resolution, and passion, and culling. A nose sharp and Ihin, with a  Jewish outline; a small mouth: along  mrrow chin: half whiskers at the side  of (he face, of a peculiar .sandy-red colour, which oddly contrasted with the  darkness of his skin nnd eyes. The lower pa it of the face shaved smooth as  a child's. For an instant tlie man's  eyes looked up boldly and peremptorily into those of the steward, as if to  penetrate his inmost thoughts. But Mr.  Crog had.no sooner seen his man than  every truce of suspicion vanished. The  stranger covered himself again with  his hat. One eye was swelling desperately with a blow from one of the iron  stanchions nt the side of the vessel.  He made no effort to lelieve ir. -  "I'm all right, now," he said, laughing. " What were you saying >. Try a  little more of this.   1 can fill it again,  " Oh, I thought perhaps you could  help me in fishing out this fellow.  There's a ticmendous reward offered  ���������five hundred pounds."  " Whew!" said tho other, jumping up  briskly, but, warned by (he moieas-  ly savage molion of Ihe vessel  tumbling into his nest again and holding on "firmly. "Have you got a description?"  His face was turned away from the  steward, and his lone was one of indifference, but if Mr. Crog could have  peeied under (he dark sombrero,1- he  would have seen on those singular features a mixture of inepressible pain  and  anxiety.  "Yes," said Mi. Crog.���������"Take care I  Don't you go squirming about so, or  you'll'be off again. I've got it here.  The capen gave mo a ropy of it. Every officer nnd steward lias a copy. It's  short, you see, being by (clegw.ph. We  was to have waited till the detective  arrived by special boat from  Derry, with the, full description, and  no one was to be allowed to go to  shore.   (Reads.)  "A man of about foily-five or filly  years of age, with thick black hair,  supposed to be dyed to cover gray,  parted down the middle. Large black  whiskers, worn a la Dundreary, with,  heavy moustache. ., High forehead,  .big eyebrows; black shining eyes. An  imperial' on chin, prominent nose,  dresses handsomely in frock-coat, or,  .vhen traveling, in a tweed shooting  suit. Large diamond ring on left little finger.

They're all so keen after the  quarry, I'll bet you anything with that  bruise, you'd have been in quod in  twenty-four  hours."  "By Jove I" said'the other, laughing  loud and long. "Take a man up for  murder because lie ��������� has a black eye !  You'll be able to seize a dozen of  these fellow's downstairs on that score  before two days are over. There's a  gang of gamblers on board."  Is there 1"  1   found    'em  out   last night,  been a gentleman's gent, and  Europe,  from  St:. Petersburg  to Biarritz,' not  to speak of Homburg  and Monaco, for nothing."  Mr. Crog looked respectfully at his  Jewish'friend. This was the very man  to help him to dig out thc criminal  from the mine of humanity below  there.  "Well," replied Mr. Crog, "there's a  hundred pounds for you if you pick  him  out, dead  or  alive."  "A hundred pounds, sir,'" cried the  other, in a contemptuous tone. "Do  you suppose I'm going to share with  you at any less than half the money i  I'll (see you hanged first. Wait until I"ve talked it over-with some of  (he officers."  Mr. Crog was quick enough to see.  that Ihe astute stranger had caught  him, and being a man of. sense, he  agreed with the fellow quickly, whiles  he was in the way with him, seeing  that now it would be that or nothing.  They shook hands over the bargain,  and (hen the stranger tried to riss to  his birth. He could scarcely move.  "Well," he said, "1 am stiff I- I shall  have to lie up, I can see. Well, don't  you. be in a hurry .about that fellow.  I- shall stay quietly, in my berth for a  day or two, and listen to what goes on,  especially il" this infernal weather  lasts."  "By tlie way," said Mr. Crog, "what's  your name?"  "Stillwater," replied the other.  "James Stillwater. I've given up my  ticket to (he. purser's steward, so you  need not bother me about that I'll look  after  myself." *  He crawled slowly down   the hatch-  No.  "Yes.  I've not  all over  <:������������������  way,  and limped  along  to the  men's  quarters, where he  had selected    the  most  retired,  the   darkest,    and most  disagreeable berth in-the, ship.  CHAPTER IV.  Sir Benjamin      Peakman,  K.C.M.G.,  was a new knight, but not a new light  in  the  colonial  world.    His name  had  been associated with the business and  politics of our transatlantic possessions  for now very nearly a third of a   cen-  turv.   Hard and astute,  he knew how  lo  conceal  his  .shrewdness and  sternness under an air of good humor and  even  of'deference,    which,  if, it    reminded ono too much of the sleek affectation of a  cat,  bent on a hunting  excursion in    la   bird-frequented    garden, wus at all events generally agreeable.

He was a big boy  too, nnd a sharp one.    Uis mother was  descended from n  family of U.

Twenty years later, . when  Captain Gumbo was a veteran, ana  Benjamin Peakman had become a  ruling partner in the firm of Macwhappy, Salt, and Peakman, the old man  was turned off at the first chance like  a mangy dog; and when he went to  Peakman and pleaded his long service  and.his six children, and, besought  that he might not be sent into hopeless poverty, Mi-.'

A foreigner in Spain sees many ii regularities, especially in the post-offices. In Totes, a villuge of twelve  hundred inhabitants, in northern  Spain, thc postmaster was an old man  who was usually found asleep, and resented being falirred up to deliver a  letter. In the larger post-offices the  height of conf ussion is reached, because  letters aro put into pigeon holes,  alphabetically arranged, according to  the fancy of the postmaster. '  '"Mr. John Smith,'" says Doctor  Gadow in his 'Northern Spain," "will  on cnquiiy, probably be told there i������>  nothing for him, because the letter is  safely lodged under J., the postmaster  having mistaken Smith for an additional surname; but John Smith,  Esq.,' will as likely be relegated to  E, and, unless the postmaster is amicably inclined, your letter has a good  chance of remaining there until the  quarterly or annual clearance, when  it may be returned through the dead  letter office- 1 say 'may,' becauso such  lei lers are consideied troublesome,  and have ii knack of disappearing."  Doctor Gadow, having obtained an  introduction to tho postmaster of Poles  and exchanged compliments with htm,  was invited to look through his shelves  arid.take his choice. He came across a  letter addressed to a gentleman in  Cabczon, a town at some distance from  Poles. On asking why it had not been  sent on, he received this startling answer: 'That man is a foreigner���������is he  not ?

There are advantages that come from  this lino of effort, one of the chief of  ���������which is an acknowledged improvement  of (he farm. This is an important  consideration, but not the solo one to  bo thought of. While it is best to  pursue such course as will secure Ihe  improved condition of the farm, there  should always bo a desire which is laudable lo get a fair income as a result of  labor performed and of capital invested.  -^ All who engage in dairy farming do  not make it a success, but some do  Upon this point PtoL Patterson says:  "Success in dairy farming- depends  really upon three facts��������� the man, tho  cow and the feed." Regarding the  man, he should have a good range of  knowledge and bo possessed of sound  judgment. He should give regular  and proper attention to the business;  he should be a. keen observer and have  a, proper sensibility of neatness and  cleanliness; he should have a mild and  ���������even temper, so that it may not be  said ot him as ot tho man who was  ugly to his cows and thought "the  devil was in his cows," who, on being  rebuked in his treatment, acknowledged that "tho devil was in himself." l  Ro.frardlng the cow, no dairyman  should be satisfied with any animals  but. those of the, best; they may cost  ; some more, but it must be remembered  that the cost of feed for a good cow  is no more than for a poor ono, while  the returns are very many times  greater; neither Is tho care and attention any moro for a good one than for  a poor ono. It is a fact lhat the feed,  labor or care and attention are disproportionate in a poor animal when  compared with a good ono.  It is not necessary that cows should  bo thoroughbreds to secure good results ; excellent animals are found  among natives and grades, and it is  these that phould ho sought after at  all limes. Tho great object should be  to secure thoso that have descended  ,   from  well    known  milk    and    butter  strains. .  , Dairymen , can hardly expect to get  satisfactory cows on the market, for  one who Be.lls will hardly sell his cows,  and as any seotion of country advances  In dairying and tho records of animals  become known, the moro difficult will  it be to purchase good cows.  ' "Regarding feed, it is hnrdly necessary to mention so plain a fact as lhat  one. cannot expect to secure something  from nothing. With good cows hut  poor and insufficient feed no satisfactory results need be .looked for.  Cows should he supplie.d with a good  quantity of coarse feed of first quality  supplemented by grain rations. In  this age of general discussion ot prosper rations for animals it. is not neces  pense to care for,  why not have the  best t  PACKING ICE ON THE FARM. ~  Many farmers put up a small quantity of ice during the .winter, but find  it difficult to beep it through the summer. In the large ice-houses the immense quantity of ice keeps the temperature in the building so near the  freezing point that a little marsh hay-  put on the top is sufficient protection  Crom heat. In a small ice-house, says  a writer, a greater proportion of the  ice is exposed around tho sides, and I  have found it necessary to use six inches of saw dust between the ice and  boards, and three inches on tho top  beforo putting on the hay. Even with  this precaution, the ice melted rapidly  and September usually found me without ice. Finally, I dug down three  feot below tho surface, and this ^part  of it keeps perfectly, even the soft  snow put between tho cakes, can now  at the end of summer, be taken out in  handfuls. Here there is a gravel  bottom, so to give good drainage. It  is natural for heat to rise and there  seems to be no way' for the heat to get  into tho excavation. Ono cold winter  tho temperature in our cellar was  thirty-two degrees F. and we warmed (he room ovor it to eighty degrees  F. and opened tho door, but the,heat  would not go down and we found it  impossible in that way to raise the temperature one degree. While the heat  is very obstinate about going downward, we must not infer that o'old is  as obstinate about going upward. The  region of perpetual snow upon the tops  of our highest mountains, proves that  cold does not always seek the lowest  points upon the earth. Never, in summer, have I seen butter so hard aa  when a. plate of it is sot upon a milk  can kept in ice water, where the butter is higher than lhe;ice.  Some   of   the    Reasons   Why   This  Country Town, After Progressing  to a Certain Point, Now Stands  ' Still.  iiy mack, in Toronto Saturday Night.  Why is it that so many of our Canadian towns, after climbing half  way up the hill,' have squatted  down to rest as if to say: "I'll  climb no farther upwards, come  what may 7" ���������  Tho above is the opening paragraph  of an itom, or an editorial, that is just  now appearing in nearly all the country papers. It is followed by some of  tho alleged roasons for the mildewed  condition of oountry towns, and it has  occurred to me lhat the town of Elm-  root is a case in point, and that I  might assist the enquiry by explaining  tho situation in that village. Being  quite familiar with the place, yet independent of it, I can, perhaps, be'  more candid than the country editor  dare be in speaking of his own town.  Nothing on earth seems able to more  again tho arrested progress of tho  town of --Elmroot, Ont. It lies, decaying in the sun all summer and  shrouded in snow all - winter. Why  should it stand still ? Why should it  grow? All the hamlets' cannot grow  to be villages, all the .villages to be  towns, all the towns to bo cities. Yet  why should not this grow as well as  anotherT  dollars for ��������� the same advertisement,  print it faithfully, and never get the  money; When I bey send their bills in  nobody lives al the address given. Each  proves that the otbor is a robber in  regard to village and township printing, that the other paper has no  circulation, no reliability. Yet these  men do unheard-of kindnesses, giving  away their space for the good of others,  although their space is their stock-in-  trade as much as the merchant's goods  are hLs. These witless men are amiable to all but themselves. They  cross-cut and chop each other down,  and their competition is a starving-  match for themselves and families.  There are rival doolors, one a Methodist, and tho olher a Presbyterian,  and these    learned    men accuse each  sary lo even suggest articles of food,  but il is important to urge that one  be satisl'ie.d only with thoso thai are  rocogriized to bo the best for the speci-  '   fie purpose of milk or bul tor produc-  1   tion.

'  But, says one, why will pure breeds  pay better? In answering this question, we will say that, in the first, place,  they are larger, we are now speaking  of market poultry, not the smaller  breeds, grow faster and mature earlier, besides their bodies are more com-  1 pact. and. quality of meat hotter.  Suppose you have two flocks of chickens���������one common, the other pure-bred  ���������thoy are the same age and have been  fed in the same way. Now send fifty  ������ach of thoso to market and see the  result. -.We'will suppose them to be  ibout throe weeks old. The fifty common chickens will weigh about soven-  ty-fivo pounds and the other 100 lbs.  ���������a difference of twenty-five pounds,  would be ^2.50. The, care has been  the same and cost, ot feed the same.  Again, tho difference in egg pro-  luction is quite an item. The average  lommon hen will not lay over about  8 dozen eggs per year, while the purebred hen will lay an' average of about  twelve dozen per year���������a difference of  four dozen, which; at fifteen cents,  about tho average price for. this section of the country, w-buld be sixty  cents per hen, and ii 100 hens were  kept ��������� would amount to ������00.00 per year  more than tho common hens.  Still another advantage in keeping  pure-bred stock is that you can always  bell a few sittings of eggs at extra  prices, and then in the fall sell a few  cockerels at fifty cents to one, dollar  apiece, which is much better than raising common stock and having to sell  the cockerel at fifteen to twenty cents  each. That there is good,money in  raising common fowls we do not deny,  but when there is more money in pure  breediJ,- with no  more trouble or ex-1  WHITE SCOUR IN CALVES.  In reply to a question on this subject asked of the North British Agriculturist, a correspondent of that  journal wrote as follows: "At one time  I was greatly troubled with this  scourge and lost many calves. About  six years ago I got the following cure  from a neighboring farmer, and it has  never failed: When a calf is seen to  bo affected give from three ounces to  six ounces castor oil or linseed oil, according to age; then next morning,  two hours before the calf is led, give  the following: One-third ounce powdered rhubarb, ono drachm flowers of  sulphur, four ounces brown sugar,  given in two gills of warm milk or water. If given in time one dose stops  the scour,"but if not, repeat the second  morning, and always make the calf  fast two hours after, nnd feed sparingly  for n few days. In very bad cases a  third dose may be needed. I do not  think anyone who tries the above and  keeps his calves comfortable need ever  lose a calf with white scour."

Mix  the cement with sand and water, so  that it will lie quite thin, and will run  easily. Let it fill all the openings  and cover all the stones. Allow this  to set. Then give the whole a coating with a trowel the same as in cementing a cistern, using ono part of  cement to three parts of good sand.  A floor built in this manner will last  indefinitely if the cement used is first  class.  LOST ON THE TURF.  It is estimated (hat as much as between, ������40,000,000 and ������50,000,000 is  lost yearly upon tho turf, England  contributing its share to the extent  contributing its share lo the extent of  from ������7,000,000 to ������10,000,000.'Australia  that no loss than ������20,000,000 changes  hands there yearly, The French suffer  most next to (he Australian; colonies,  most of the remainder of the amount  being contributed by other British colonies  and  the  United States.

As a matter of fact the village of  Elmroot attained any size or growth  ever possessed through, the workings  of Sheer Necessity, (ind not, through  the enterprise or capacity of its citizens, past or present. It had its beginnings whon two high-roads crossed  there, and a small stream afforded water-power for a saw-mill and a gristmill. Later on a railway was being  buill and ohancod to go near the village. Sheer Necessity also required  one or two blacksmith shops, wagon  shops, general stores, churches, tav-  rens, a drug store, a doctor, a telegraph office, a photograph gallery, a  milliner, a dressmaker, a cobbler, a  local new-spupor���������and necessity not  quite so sheer soon called for a second  newspaper, a second doctor, and two  lawyers. There were necessarily some  builders and laborers, a school and a  couple of teachers. Elmroot, once  built up to this measure, stood still,  and grows no further.  Perhaps there is no need for anything further. Perhaps tho place  could dispense wdfh  much of itself.  This is clear, that Sheer Necessity  has done her utmost, will do no more,  and any further development must be  the result of human enterprise. It  is therefore interesting to study the  efforts of the citizens to make Elmroot a big and prosperous place. One  would suppose that they would strive  towards progress, but do they ?  .There aro five or six general stores  carrying only such goods as can certainly be sold, and selling these at the  very highest price that can be got for  them. The customer must take What  he can get and pay what is asked ; the  merchant follows tradition and,.'carries in'stock th'e'things he used to sell,  and the customer who is not suited  hecomes talked of in the village as a  "stuck-up" person. The merchants  only advertise in charity to the local  newspaper���������do not change their advertisements or make them useful, but.  doze along, growing more old-fogeyish  every year. These store-keepers are  scarcely on speaking terms with each  other.     .   ���������   .    ' -.  There are. two taverns, not hotels,  where the cheapest liquors and cigars  that can be had in all Canada are sold,  driving the villagers and farmers to  insanity or ' teetotalism, and making  any restrictive law sure to carry by  (he votes of the insane and tho non-  drinking. The bar-man cannot make  a shady-gaff, nor a John Cullins, nor  a cock-tail, nor any 'other'fancy drink;  he has no wine, but something made of  logwood, which he calls "native." In  fact, he has nothing but rye, gin and  beer, and unless you take what he can  pump up easiest, ho demands to know  "who you think you aro."  There are two weekly papers that,  spend most of their time and space in  quarreling with each other, edited by  men who by their methods confess  themselves beggars and not business  men, and look for support to the pili-  tical parties w-hich they injure'by the  uniiitolligenco of their partisanship.  Thoy issue papers that would not in  a hundred years over-persuade one adversary. These editors are forever  publishing items warning their readers  against fakes, yet they are through  fraudulent advertising agencies buncoed of tenor than the village idiot.  They print a ten dollar advertisement  for one dollar if paid in advance; or  they will accept the promise of forty  THE LOCAL EDITORS CUT PRICES,  other of murder whenever anyone  dies. Each is baoked by his church,  but not by all without exception, and  so there is a bitter feud and constant  striving to snatch patients from each  olher and tho grave. If one doctor  gets one chance at a patient of the  other he cures him���������which is very unprofessional and spiteful.  There are two lawyers who also disagree in religion, if it is religion that  draws them to church. They keep  the town in bot water with law-suits  and politics. They do not speak. to  oach other. Each lawyer chums with  one of the rival doctors, but it is the  humble patrizans of these two cliques  that  fight and get broken noses.  There are rival preachers who bow  solemnly to each other as they walk  towards the rival newspapers with anonymous letters of three columns'  length, grinding at some theological  question in a discussion that lasts for  months and ruins (he circulation of  both papers. The editors dare not  choke off these saintly bull-dogs.  Politics are very keen in Elmroot.  The man who would change over because of any public question would be  called a turn-coat, and might as well  commit suicide. They do not know,  as city people do, thai politicians are  self-confessed humbugs who are virtuous  only  when  in   Opposition.  On so-called inoral or social questions  (ho people are dictated to by the  pulpits, and thc man who refuses to  obey is openly charged with being a  child of the devil. The Pope of Rome  never pretended to greater infallibility  in deciding what is right and .what are  God's wishes, than do these obscure  parsons of the little village of Elmroot.  They do not speak in public halls  where argument might ensue, but retire lo their pulpits, where, in the  name of God, they dispense with the  necessity of using common sense. They  drive  reasonable mon  lo  either aban-  THE LAWYERS DO NOT SPEAK.  don tho churches or to conceal their  intelligence under a mien of placid  assent. , ���������  And so on.

"Treating." if the efforts of Mr. E.  T. Monelto, of Chicago, accomplisH  what that feentleman wishes, may  soon bo as'obsolete as the Dark Ages,  Under the Monett supervision there  has been started in Chicago a "Non-  Treating Club." This, contrary to  what might be supposed, has been  welcomed enthusiastically and has '  hopes of becoming a powerful national organization. There arc plans afoot  for establishing a chapter in every  big city in the land.  The "Non-Treating Club," Mr. Monett being a railroad official, has  been founded principally for travelling men. It is young as yet in length  of days, but already ' five thousand  buttons and cards have been distributed, and ten thousand more are on  the point of being scattered, Mr. Monett designed the button of the club,  which is of a white surface, with the'  letters "N. T. O." in a scroll of blue,  and he wants each member of the association, and any one, in fact, who  believes in lhe principles, to wear this  badge and'  DISPLAY IT  OPENLY  when a "treat" is offered him.  By way of  spreading the principles  of the olub the founder has issued the'  following circular:���������  "I was not looking for fame or anything of the kind when I introduced  the "Non-Treating Club' to the good-  people of Cook county, but I have always believed each and every ono of  us was put on this earth for some  good, and being somewhat of a "Bo-'  hemian,' and not being in a position  to offer my services ac a volunteer in  the recent misunderstanding between  Uncle Sam and Mr. Spain, I determined to do the next best thing ���������,  viz. help my fellow men in some olher way. I had an inspiration���������acted  upon it. Result, "Non-Treating  Club/  "I did not imagine it would spread  beyond Chicago, but as tho newspapers all ovor the country have taken it  up I have simply been 'snowed under'  with applications for membership, .  which is an indication that the club  meets with the approval of the largo  majority.  "Time will not permit an answer lo  each and every inquiry, and I trust  you will accept this open letter as answer to your kind favor of recent  date. Up to the present writing I  have furnished buttons and membership cards free of charge, but the requests are coming in too fast for me  to keep up the good work all alone,  and hereaftor I will kindly ask that  in case you want, a hundred or more  lo send me a check for the actual cost  ���������viz. $1.50 per 100. For single buttons please enclose four cents, in  stamps."  Each button sent out is attached lo  a card.

OF LETTERS,  from all over tho country.   This   plan  seems     to   have    struck   a      pouplar  chord.  Asked about his plan, he says in detail :���������"This treating business, as every man of the world knows, is increasing rather than decrcasinsr, and  it is 'all rot. You and 1 go into a  cafe wilh (he intention of taking ono  drink, possibly two. Wo meet eight  or ten of our mutual friends, and  they insist upon us joining them. Wo  do so. then we reciprocate, and the  consequences are that each and every  man in the crowd 'sets 'em up,' and  the. first thing7 we know we have  eight or ten drinks under our belt,  whereas, we only wanted one.. This  thing repeated several times a day.  year in and year out, will not only  ruin a man physically, but also financially.  "Now that the club has a foothold;  I would be glad to see chapters .started in every, city in the. land, and  while. T do not imagine for one minute (hat its existence will revolutionize this country, at the .same time I  believe it is a step in the right  direction."  HE KNEW THEM.

Miss Coombs is certainly  a star in her own native sphere, and  was well supported by some of her  company ; but long,'7 heavy-plays'--like  Dickens' works dramatised are not the  thing for a small mining camp. A certain, percentage of the people in any  place appreciate that class of entertainment ; but in a mining cajnp the  number is tod small to offer good audiences for a full week.
