Tt is ronorted that the  cavalry scored heavily, and that the  infantry did great execution with bayonets, the Gordon Highlanders carrying the principal Boer position at the  point of thc bayonet. The Bsers lost  heavily in" killed and wounded and a  number surrendered.  It is announced in a special dispatch  from Capetown, dated Sunday November 5th, morning, that- the British  have been victorious in tin engagement  at Lndysmith.and that theBcrloss was  verv heavy, including 2000 prisoners.  Durban. Nov. 5.���������Other information  confirms tho statements of' the native  eyc-witnessc* respecting tho severity  ofthe fighting on both Friday and Saturday near Ladv.amit.y. The natives  assert that r,he Boors we're so cut up  that thev howled for mercy on the  field. Ltidysmith is crowded with  Boer prisoners and wounded, the latter  presenting horrible evidence of the  the Bwordsm.antnip ofthe cavalry.

He stiys  the entire Outlander population of that  city, numbering 00,000 English and  German, chiefly the former, have left  there, and the city was a scene of*  chaos. He says the Boers are hardly  a civilized people. The Boer soldiers  looted and pillaged cver> thing they  could lay their hands on, showing  mercy to none.

Accounts    from     different  sources agree that  thc official declaration of Thursday's engagement, as "an  effective shelling of the Boer's laager,"  was   unduly modest.   It appears  that  General White sent a strong force   of  cavalry   and  infantry   to   attack   the  Boors at Tatham's farm, about 10 miles  to the northwest,   near   Bestor's,  and  apparently   achieved   a surprise,   the  Boers being caught on the  open veldt  and cut, to pieces  and their camp captured.   Encouraged   by   this   success,  General White decided to risk an even  more   important engagement   on   the  following day, which   was justified because it had been successful.  Ltidysmith is reported  to have been  isolated, tho Boer force   having intercepted thc railway between Ltidysmith  and Colenso.   This force compelled a  retirement of the British from Colenso  upon   Estcourt. '.-'���������, General White   had  ascertained that the Boers were attacking Colenso, but .was not aware of the  British:retirement. > The Boers had advanced southward until they had occupied   the hills  north of  Tugela river,  which command Colenso, on the other  side '>!'., the stream.   The hills slope to  a plain,  that reaches to the bank*  of  the Tugela.   General White's division  caught the Boers in tne rear, and after  they  had been shelled the British infantry stormed' the  position.    Meanwhile the British cavalry swept around  the hills, and as the retreating enemy  descended into the plain, with British  bayonets behind them and the river in  in front of them, they were charged by  thecav.lry and seemed to perish almost to a man.   The British  tlu-n returned to Ladysmith, where,  from the  official dispatches  received from Estcourt, the situation is reported  satisfactory,    with   a;  hope   that   General  "White may yet completely retrieve his  reputation  and his forcevmay emerge  triumphant   from   the ordeal through  which it is now passing. |  The stockholders of the Rambler-  Cariboo Mines, Limited, statutory-  meeting was held at the head offices of  the company at Kaslo on Thursday,  November 2nd.  Tho retiring board of directors was  able to make a report of a gratifying  nature to the stockholders. The extensive development carried on by  them lor months past has resulted in  bringing into sight very large ore reserves, and has put the mine in a position to pay regularly monthly dividends for a long time, and at the same  time enaule tnem to carry on active  development work, so that the ore reserves may be continually increasing  and kept in advance of shipments by at  least three years, as is now the case.  The directors elected thc following  as their office��������� for the ensuing year :  J. B. Ale Arthur, president; A. F. Mc-  Cliiine, vice-president; Wm. Hastie  Adams, secretary, treasurer and general manager.  The directors ordered a payment of  a dividend of one cent per snare on the  issued capital of the company, payable  on the 1st of December.  Tbe management   has  made a discovery of importance and which they  will at once proceed to disclose.   As  the result of recent working  they find  tliat by extending one of their tunnels  a distance  of about 25 feet  they will  strike what is known as  the King ore  chute in the Cariboo ground, at a depth  of about 3U0'ieet,  and if ore is found  there, (as it no doubt will be)   the ore  reserves'  in the mine  will be probably  doubled, and  the value of tlie   stock  largely increased.   The upraise will be  completed in about  a fortnight, when  the force will be increased to about 50  men,  most   of them working   on ore.  The ore is of a very high gratio, many  carload lots netting the company $2,500  to the car.  pointed place of workship. The pas  tor, Rev. J. A.

A little over two years ago Sandon  was without a church building, the  various denominations holding services, bv thc kindness of thc proprietors,  in Spencer's and Crawford's halls, later  the Presbyterians enjoying the freedom  of Virginia hull, and now, with the exceptions of one each in Rossland and  Nelson, two of the finest church buildings grace the town, The now one, as  does also the Methodist, occupies a  commanding position on Sunnysidc  overlooking the business part of the  town, the two standing like sentinels  watching over the welfare of the inhabitants.  Tho order of the opening services  will be as follows :  Morning Service, 11 A.M,���������Sermon  by Rev. A. M. Sanford. Communion  service.  Children's Service, 3P.M.���������Sacra-,  ment of Baptism. Sermon by Rev. R.  Frew (Nelson).  - Evening-Service, 7:30 P.M.���������Sermon  by Rev. R. Frew.  Special music at each service, under  the leadership of Mr. W. W. Fallows.  There will bo a collection at each  service in aid of the Building Fund.  Notices of the dinner, 5:30 to 7:30 in  St. Andrews hall, and concert at S:30 in  Virginia hall, Monday evening, and  "Bengough" on Thursday al, 8:30 p.m.  in St. Andrews hall, appear in other  columns.  As all the fixtures of tho church are  not arranged, at time of writing, we  will defer a description of the building  until next week, when further details  of the ceremonies can bo given.  The pastor and board of managers  wish to convey to their many friends,  who have subscribed to tho building  fund, their sincere gratitude for the  cheerful manner in'which their help  has been given, especially during,tho  dull times here, but wish to state that  there is still a deficiency of ������500, and  sincerely hope that this amount will  be considerably reduced or wiped off  during the dedication services, dinner,  concert and Bengough entertainment.  nearly'every little mining camp in the  Northwest. They are not so plentiful  those latter days. Men who invest in  mines are more particular in selecting  their mine managers than they were  in the early mining days. They have  learned by dearly bought experience,  that "book learning," while all right as  an equipment, does not fully prepare a  man to assume responsible positions  in mine management. He must or  should have a practical, knowledge  of mining to acquire the full measure  of success in his calling.  It is true that fortunes luve been  made by investors in mines, who never  swung a pick or trod a level, but tli'ey  employed practical men, not theorists,  to manage the underground part of the  busin05Si  M the whole truth   wore known   it  wonlti transpire that the great bulk of  tllC mining failures is directly charge-  nble to ignorance���������to   the   failure of  tncorics to answer expectations raised.  ������������������-ny1 theory based upon the working of  11 mine, or group of mines,  may prove  baseless when  applied   to a different  formation.      Mother   earth    was   not  built upon any given plan or rule.  She  is full of freaks, 'and theoiists 'never  take   freaks  into consideration.    Thc  practical miner meets  and  surmounts  them and then goes about his business  until ho finds  something else unusual  to   tax his , resources.    The  theorists  may build a theory from what he saw,  but it dies   "a bornin'" for he never  finds  a condition to  fit it.   Practical  miners know when they meet changed  conditions of the earth  in shafts or in  levels, but they can't say whether they  will make or  break   by pursuing  the  change.   A theory is often followed to  financial ruin ; a practical man follows  only   what is in   sight.    Thet ry  and  practice in  mining  never tro    in the  same class.���������Western Mining World.  ND MINING.  PERSONAL   MENTION.  The Enterprise will soon resume general operations.

The Mutual Reserve Fund Life Association  has  commenced  proceedings  against  former officers  and   employees charged with circulating false and  libellou.-, cliarges   against the association.      The charges wore   first  made  wiLti tho New York Insurance Department, and when it was found that the  deivar^meut   ignored   them  in   its   exhaustive  report  upon   the   association  they    wore  repeated  to  various  New  York    newsiKipers    until      one    was  found  willing to give them1 publicity.  Col.  E.  C. Ja-m-es,   the   eminent   attorney in New York, Ls acting for the  association, and the charges are to bo  pushed   vigorously,    not  only  against  tho original offenders, but also against  anyone  repeating the  libellous  statements.   The move of the Mutual .Re-  servo will, it is believed, commend itself  to all honest  men,  and  all  who  are   interested  in  the  association.   It  is a move thai should have boon made  long ago.    For years it hiis been slan-  dored   and  villified  through  journals  that are no credit either to the insurance business or to journalism. These  attacks have been put in circular form,  and sold by tho thousands to" competing companies, who supply their agents  with   the-m,   who,  in   tunn,   distribute  them  among tho people   with  a view  to prejudice public opinion against the  Association.  One will naturally inquire what the  Mutual Kesorve has done to meri l such  unfair   treatment.   Its    greatest     sin  Beemu'to be tbaj. It has saved its policy-holders about forty millions of dollars which its competitors would have  token from them,  and to thia charge  it pleads   guilty.   But   why it should  be  abused  for   working  for  tho   puo-  plo'a  interest  is   difficult    to under-  e land, unless it is on tho principle that  .the moat clubs and stones are always  found under the best ajjple tree, and  no doubt the insuring public will take  that  view of   it.   Indeed,   ic  looks   as  though-the the question of the future  ' would   be  whether   the  public aro  to  work  for   the   stockholders  of  insurance companies, or their own families,  as tho  business  seems  to bo  drifting  into the hands of a few manipulators..  In other words, is it to be life insur-  >   ance for the people or Hooleyism ?  There Is one thing evident, when the  association has come through such a  rigid examination at the hands of an  to put it mildly, did them scant justfoe,  hosLile Department of Insurance, who,  but is "compelled" to say they are absolutely solvent with praoticaliy a million dollars of surplus over and above  all   liabilities   actual   or   contingent,  ihey have nothing to fea r in the future.   Had the  law  been  oarried out  end justice done    tbe    association, it  would have shown nearly two million  dollars    of   a surplus.      This is    the  strongest  endorsation  the  association  could possibly  get.   Not  only so, but  to the thoughtful mind it means that  cibie, and' that the vile attempt that  the association    is practically    invincible, and that  the vile attempt that  h,as been made to injure the interests  of thousands of policy-holders will end  in inspiring still greater confidence in  the  association,  leading on    to,  still  greater  achievements, in  the    future,  making thousands of homes happy at  the lowest cost consistent with absolute safety.  The very men whom the shoulderers  thought to please have long since been  diBgusted with their self-elected champions and ashamed that their business  should seem,to need such helpers.

Diabetes is cured' before it  advances to a dangerous degree generally, though there have been cases  where prejudiced people, trying everything under the sun before resorting  to Dodd's Kidney Pills, have been  snatched from the edge of the grave  by their use.  The case of Mr. Thomas Brooks, of  North Bruce, belongs somewhat to  this latter class. Mr. Brooks says: "I  was troubled with Diabetes. I consulted a doctor, but he could not, help  mo. I have also used other medicines,  but got no relief. I have used two  dozen boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills  and am completely cured. I can highly recommend this medicine above all  others. Two years ago I could not  look up to the >iop of a building, my  back was so bad. Now I can stoop  and bend with ease. Tho doctors wanted to perform an operation, but I  would not allow this.

'  THE CARRIAGE FOR WOMEN.  One reason for the popularity of the  automobile  among  women   is  that  it  Is such an absolutely clean conveyance.  There ia no dust to speak of;   no mud  thrown up by the hoofs of horses, and  the most immaculate    costurae    loses  none of its freshness after the drive.  Then there is a safety about the horseless carriage which also appeals to every woman who had been condemned  to  drive   behind   what  are  known   as  " ladies' horses," those staid old alow-  going   animals   that   are   tagged   safe  nnd reliable enough to be trusted under a feminine rein.   Women like good  horses, bat very few have the strength  , nerve   and   skill     necessary     to  drive  them.   That they are advancing in this  particular accomplishment is proved by  the  fact   that   at  recent  horse  shows  women have carried off many of the  first   prizes.   But   the   automobile,   at  present, is the chosen conveyance, and  there is little  doubt  that New York,  will soon  see  many of  the  carriages  propelled by. fair hands that have been  trained to^ handle' the brakes, to back  and  steer  in  the  very  adept  fashion  that   Newport  women   are   exploiting  ; this summer.   The fact that the electric  carriages have   been  exiled from  the park drives has militated against  their use in town, but that restriction  Is to he removed shortly, and this autumn the girls will probably glory in  the use of  these new-fangled driving  machines,   rejoicing  in    them  all the  more in that they eliminate from the  life of womankind, one persistent terror, tie cabman.

You know that  1 am  ready,  md, if you do not ������oel exactly as I  io, that will come in timo."  "But perhaps I do not want it to  :ome. You thought that you conceal-  sd your feelings completely just now  wiblan I said that I intended to follow  up my acquaintance with Mr. Daryl,  6|ut- l'know you too well to be idecoiv-  ed.

Nojw, f -a,*ui determined to speak to him,  BP iD is clear- that any thought of nn  engagement between', us is an impos-  jibility." ,  "I see," Mr. Warrender answered  meditatively. ...       ,    ,  ��������� Their eyes mot, and both laughed,  but' Kilmeny's fell before his.  ��������� "You think that you will bring^ ra������  round to it some day," she said, "but  I don't think you will. Here is the  place- where we clunbed in. Shall we  go out by it or; go on to (ihe giate ?"  'You promised Mr. Daryl lo go out  by  tho gate."  "J/ belie-ve I did. . Wall, 1 must keep  miyl word at any cost."  "Do you always do that?" he inquired, curiously.  "Always. Won't' you come in when  wa get home ? I want to tell mamma  about  our  adventure."  ���������He 'nloddcd. ,Jle' hlad been in love  -with. Kilmeny since she was up  to his elbow, and it took-little persuasion- Lo induce> him* to remain in her  locieiy.  Ten years ago, Doctor Richmond, a  Blruggling physician with an increasing family, had been glad to receive  tuuzu into his house at a moderate fee  aa a pupil, and finally as an assistant;  and, when, by a series of unexpected  events,! tho young man had come into  a property which he had never dreamed would be his, he had decided to  oom'plote his medical studies exactly  as if-ho still required to work for his  broad. Ho was always regarded aa a  son oil the household, and though he  was obliged to spend most of his time  at hia new estate, "Chris' room" was  , kept ready for him iu the Doctor's  bousei, and he was as eagorly and. affectionately welcomed there whcn-i  ever ha could return as7 if he had ���������been  one' of the family.  It was at his suggestion that Mrs.  Richm-oai-dV and her children had come  to speiad a mlonLll in a charming cottage near his house during DocLor  Richmond's unexpected absence in  America, whilher he had been called  to the deathbed of an. only brother.  The Doctor had been thankful to have  his wife and children under Chrislo-  ��������� phor'a care whilst he was absent; and  Mrs. Richmond, a soft, .pretty, motherly woman with a gentle - voice and  olioiging ways, looked Lo him for advice in everything. Sho glanced up  with a smile as her daughter and he  Milered the room, Kilmony went (o  h)er and kis3od her, taking a low seat  lib hor feet.  "We hiaVo had such a'n adventure,!  mlamma I" she cried, and she gave her  -tn- account of their, meeting with Mr.  Daryl. "Wasn't it nice of him to ask  ma back after our trespassing on his  grounds?"  "Do you moan to go?" Mrs. Richmond asked doubtfully, glancing at  Mr. Warrender. 7  "I am going," Kilmeny answered decidedly. "Bo looked so old and lonely," she said; "and-when'Chris"told-me  abou/L' his dismal life, and his misfortunes and disappointments, I was  lorry for him. Oh, yes; I intend to  go back and perhiaps see' him again.  You have no objection, mamma, have  you? There could not be any harm in  it, and I should meet nobody except  possibly Mr. Daryl, and he is an old  man. Think of his living there: all  through his life and seeing his relatives disappoint him, one by; one���������even  hia wife and his son 1 And then for  years everybody has.been dead, and ha  hlaa lived alone I"  "Such a slate of things generally  comes about through one's own fault,".  Christopher Warrender said. "One.al-  waya reaps what one sows, Kilmeny."  "And does that make his case less  sad?"'the girl askod, slill in the same  thoughtful tone. "Mauuna, aren't the  ,: children in yet? They have been out !  ���������I long timo." I  "They are gathering flowers to de-j  eorate Lancelot's room before he comes  home to-morrow.   It is delightful for  thorn to be iin the country, and they  are  never happy except when out of j  doors." i  "Just like mo I" Kilmeny cried, with >  iv laugh, rising from her seat. "1 am I  going to see, about tea, Chris, so do '.  not; run away." ' i  "What do you think,! ought to do !  about Kilmeny and this Mr. Daryl ?" ���������  Mrs. Richmond asked, when hor j  daughter had loft the room. "Shall Ii  let her gfo?" ' j  "Kilmeny generally does what she [  likes, 1 think," he answered with a I  smile. "Recollect that I am invited  too, and am as much boat on accepting ,  Mr. Daryl's invitation aa she is, (hough j  frqm' a different motive;"  "Oh,   if  you  go  with  her,   it  is  all  ���������right."  Mrs. Richmond, with a relieved look,  r-isuittt'edf her work, and Kilmeny presently came in, accompanied by the old  servant carrying afternoon tea. The  big, lattice window was open, and tho  summer roses wore nodding outside,  the! green of their leaves thrown into  relief by the deep-red color of the  brick walls. The faint warm air carried in now and then the mingled  scents of summer. Blrs. Richmond,  still lovely in hor gentle motherhood,  sat tranquilly sotting the ornamental  stitches in her work, while Kilmeny  moved hither and thither, as sweet a  vision] as one could wish to see, busy  about the details of the te-a table. As  sliel did so sho suing softly   to herself,  A Double Disobedience.  iund presently, looking upland meeting  Christopher's eyes, smiled,' and thon  frowned a little.  II was all a pnetense, Kilmeny's asking her mother's leave to do anything. As Mr. Warrender said, she  generally did what she liked, and was  t'liq one to give advioo, not to ask it.'  She was tho moving spirit of the house.  IU was LCiluieny, with her blithe ways  and joyous laugh, her tireless activity  and whole-souled interest in everybody's affairs, who made life such, a  pk-usanl- thing in the Doctor's household. Kilmeny was the beginning and  and' of everything, always discovering  fresh! interests, always- ready to help,  aml< scold, and laugh, and make life a  dieligh't for thoso around bor.  ChrisLopher gathered one of Lhe.  roses at the lattice and offered it,, to  b&Vi and she put'it in the "belt jjf her  white dress. Though he had told her  many times that he loved her, the fact  did not seem to-have entered asi yet  inLo her serious thoughts, and their  intercourse had been kept on its old  frank footing. So they sal. and sipped their tea in the pleasant afternoon  warmth, while Mrs. Richmond listened  for (.he sound of the children's footsteps. Lancelot, tbe only son, a boy  of twelve, was expected home for  his holidays, tho next day, and their  thoughts "turned to him.  "He will do so sorry that papa is  away," Kilmeny said regretfully. "But,  them, Chris is getting so aged that he  will almost do instead. How old are  you really, Chris?"  "I thought that, it was only young  ladteo who concealed their ages ?" the  young man said,' leaning over for a  biscuit. "I am, sure you know my age  as well as I do, KUmaay, and I shall  nob excuse you from your usual offering on the happy anniversary of my  birth, if that is what you are meditating. >1 shall be twenty-eight next  month, and you will be twenty at the  same Lime. Curious���������is it ��������� not ?���������having our birthdays in tho same month;"  "Most extraordinary I Nature must  h'ave exhausted herself in producing!  two such paragons together. However, as there were eight years between U3, she had time to gather up  her energies. What sorL ot a house  were you living in when I wag born,  mamma! It was before you settled  in' Red minster."  ,  Mrs. Richmond awoke with a start  froiB a fit of dreaming into which she  appeared to have fallen, and came  back apologetically to the present.    '  "1 was just thinking of your papa,  my dear, and wondering how he was  doling in America. What sort ot a  house, did you ask me.?

I often  wondered why, he left it when he was  doing so well, and I have heard you  say that you were struggling after you  settled in our present home. Now  tell mo, mamma," 'oried Kilmeny,  trains-fixing her mother with a judicial glance, "why, when you were getting 'on and making money, you broke  up your home and went to a place  where you had to begin all over  again ?",  'But we wepe not ma-king money;  that  was the  thing." ;  "Then how did papa buy the, practice V,'    ��������� ������������������'-������������������.

A, giroupi of three persons stood on  the steps of Mr. Daryl's house and  glance-d^upi at! its gloomy exterior before entering. .Kilmeny Richmond's  white dross���������she nearly always wore  white���������and the black of her hair, looked too pretty to bs in keeping with the  severity of the building befora her,-or  with1 the harsh and cynical aspect of  its master. .Christopher Warrender,  the- third' member; of the party, no tod  that Mr. Daryl had eyos for no one but  Kilmeny, and that ibe narrowly observed everything about her. Her  springing step, her ready laughter,  the gleam of hor dark,eyes, the exuberant vitality, of her whole being, seemed to impress hitn to tho exclusion of  everyUiing else. He turned his back  on young Wnrrender, who, it he had  had( any notion that the invitation to  him' sprang from porsoual liking, was  effectually disabused of that idea.  Mr. Daryl desired the presence oL Kil-  mienyj for some reason best known to  himself, ami he desired none other.  "Are we going in t" the girl asked  in heir clear quick tones, "it is very  interesting, Mr, Daryl; but I would  much rather soo the insido of the house  than the outside. I always fancied  that I should like to live in a big house.  Ours is delightful, but it is small, and;  when., all the children are in it, ono is  inclined' to feel crataped." /  f Mr. Daryl led ihe way up the steps,  and the two young people followed.  "There, is a rather large house waiting for you, Kilmeny, if breadth is all  you want." Mr. Warrender observed  ina law tone to the girl as they entered. .   '  "It is not half of what I want 1" she  retorted in the same key. "Hush I  Doo't be tiresome I ��������� Just "look at the  hall,! Now thai, is my idea of what  a hall ought to be t"  "As7 gloomy-as that?"  "It is not gloomy ; it is only mysterious*. See"���������raising lier voice and  turning in the direction of the master  of  the    house���������"the    great    staircase  winding upwards and lost to view behind that heavy curtain, the narrow  windows, the huge fireplaces. Imagine a party seated in this hall, with  logs blazing in tho hearth, and some  one dispensing lea. Could anything  bq hotter?"  ( "So that is your idea ot the' height  of bliss," Mr. Warrender said, laughing���������"a big houso with a hall where  one could have tea among plenty of  people I"  "Thero are other things," the girl  said.   "That  is   only   the   beginning."  "Came, then," Mr. Daryl interposed  ���������"lelj us soo tho other rooms. I perceived that it would bo easy to satisfy  youri wants. Miss Richmond, and it is  a now experience to me to bo able  to do that for anybody. This is tho  drawing room," Mr. D;iryl said, ushering his companions into a splendid  aparl,m-Mit to the right.  v Liko all tho rest of the houso it was  gloomy, and the drawn blinds rendered  if. still moro so. Though the sunshine  was blazing outside, the air was almost  oold in tho great room'. Trees overshadowed the windows, and a chil'  silence reigned. Kilmeny involuntarily shivered, and Mj. Daryl observed  th'e motion.  "Why do they keep these blinds  down?" h'e cried angrily, striding  acrciss and pulling them up violently.  "]s.ny one would think wo were in a  vault 1 Now. you can see bolter, Miss  Richimond,.

What do you say?"  ��������� "Not such a bad room?" sho cried.  "It is beautiful l I could spend days  wandering round it looking at all the  lovely things in it. I think also I  should get ono or two of the trees outside taken away, and then it would be  perfect. What are you laughing at,  Chris ?"  "I am not laughing, Kilmeny. I was  much1 interested in your remarks.  Tho girl 'glanced at their companion,  over whose faco a dark frown had  stolen.  i   "You say lhat Doctor  Richmond is  in America;   when' do you expeot him  back?"   he   asked   abruptly.  ;   ''Not for a month at the earliest-1"  the girl answered*.  ,"And meanwhile you sLay here?"  ��������� "Yes.' Mr. Warrender has been so  good as to offer us tho house until  papa returns."  ��������� The old man turned for tho first  lime and surveyed his second guest.  Christopher Warrender was leaning  against ono of the windows, smiling  to himself as ho watched Kilmeny,  whose pleasure in her surroundings  was apparent. He tiad an athletic figure, and was goood-looking without  being handsome, and Ihe amusement  in his dark eyos cave them a very  kindly aspect. The -sight of him seom-  actraehow to offend Mr. Daryl, who  treated him with an open, almost insulting, ' neglect during the rest of  ,the visit. The young man did not  see-in at all put out by it, and Indeed  bestowed as little attention on the  master of the houso as thai gentleman  did on him.  "The ball room opens from thia,"  Mr. Daryl said, pointedly addressing  Kilmeny.  ..- He flung.a dobr open and ushered  his, visitors into the apartment which  he had mentioned. It was ot noble  proportions, but chill and deserted.  Kilmeny gazed at it half delighted,  half- repelled by its Loneliness.   :  "It wants people in it, too," she  said. ,':;       '   ,.'���������:    (  ��������� "Yes���������that is tjale farult a������ everything with which I have, to do I" Mr.  Daryl observed 'Witlh a smile.

Kilmeny laughed.  "I did not mean that I" she said.  "Thea  what did  ytau mean?      Who  would; care to come here, to' see mo, if  there   we're   nothing  else ?"'������������������''���������  "ffi care' to'borne. It pleases me���������oh,-  (more tham I could tell you!

He is amused and  interested,  too."  ,"I feaa- tjha't it is m������t in anything  which my, house furnishes," Mr. Daryl  said coldly. "Limit yourself to your  own experiences. Miss Richmond."  "I euuld bi happy here���������'Dor a while,"  the gir>Tsaid frankly. "But I should  grow lonely, I cannot limit myself  to 'iny own experiences for ,very long."  ' The' sound of the gong interrupted  tht'im. . ..  "I deaired luncheon to be. served,"  Mr. DaTyl-said. He offered his arm  to Ki'iiniMiy, and lookod freezingly at  the yciung man.

( Places had been prepared ior three,  and they took their seals. Chris had  expected scimelhing simple, and was  surprised at the formality and magnificence of everything aa*ouud him. The  sidcib.nrd glittered with plate, and the  mwil was served with an elaborate  ceremony which puzzled him. Kilmeny was delighted, and seemed to  hav-i completely forgotten him in her  new'.and splendid surroundings. Her  eyes' shone, her color grew still more  brilliaint, Iher laughter and bright  words made the room gay with an unwonted gladness. The, talk was chiefly between (heir host and her, and'  it struck the most si Inn t member of  the' trio that tho old man h,id a purpose whith Kilmeny did not suspect  in every word he uttorod. Chris War-  render lookod thoughtful as they rose  fjtonv tho table. -      -  "When ivijlyclii como again?" Mr.  Daryl asked as his guests were leaving.'   "I   am   always  at   hcbie,   and   I  atn anxious that you should como  often. I' have loft the picture gallery  for your next visit. When will that  be ? To-morrow ?

Tho life of a Salvation .Ar^nyi worker is very far frdm being a sinecure.  Their duties are not only arduous,  but they are called upon by tho regulations of the Ar-my to conduot  out-of-door t meetings at all seasons  and in all kinds of weatber. This being the case, it is little wonder that  tho   health   of   those  self-sacrificing  workers frequently gives way. Cap*.  Ben. Bryan, whose home 13 at Max-  ville, Ont., is well known through  Ms former connection with the Army,  having been stationed at attoh ims-  portanf points as Montreal, Toronto,  Kingston, Guelph and Brockville, in  Canada, and at Schenectady, Troy,  and other toints in the Uniteid  States. Whiife on duty he was attacked by a so-callod incurable disease, but having been restored to  health through the Use of!'Dr. Williams Pink Pills, a representative of  tlie Alexandria News Lhought it  worth while to procure from his own  lips a statement of his iLlness and recovery. He found Mr. Bryan at '  work, a healthy, robust man, .his '  appearance giving no indication of  his reoent sufferings.  The Lstory of his illness and subsequent cure by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink rills rends like a miracle,  and is feiven in hie own words as follows :���������" Whilo stationed at Deseronto, in July, 18.07, I was attacked  with wha,t the doctors called "Chronic Spinal Meningitis." The symptoms  were somewhat similar to those preceding a pleuratic attack, but wer������  accompanied by spasms, which, when  the plain became too severe, rendered  me unconscious. The- leiigth of these  unconscious spells increased as the  disease advanced. After spending  four months in the Kingston General  Hospital, and on the Salvation farm.  Toronto, I regained some of my former strength and returned To my  work. The second attack occurred  when I was stationed at SchenecLadyl  N.Y., in October, 1898, and was moro  severe than tho first. The symptoms  of the second attack were very similar to those which preceded the first,  the onjy apparent , difference being  that they were more severe and th������  j after effects were of longer duration.  Owing to the precarious state of my  health, I was compelled to resign my  position after the ' second attack and rfctu-rn to my home at Max-  ville. ( While there a friend advised  me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  and I Tjielgan using them in March, 3899.  I ha vie used ondy a doz^en boxes .and f\at  once more enjoying perfect health; I  fleell bh/at I am perfectly -well,, an<i can  cheerfully say that t'attribute my per-  sent state of health' to the effects  produced by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Mrs. Bryan has also used, the pills and  litis benefited very much thereby.'*  SIAMESE SUPERSTITION.

Twenty-five  years  ago    there   wor������  600   lady   doctors   in    practice    in . the  States; to-day  there are 4,500���������one in  15,000 of tbe population. Among these  are   a few   distinguished   honioebpath-  ists, physicians, and surgeons, professors in medical  schools,' oculists, and  electro-therapeutists,,, the    great   majority  being   ordinary   doctors.7     The  first lady doctor in the world was an  American    woman,    Miss      Elizabeth  Blaokwell, who was enrolled as a physician in tlie Medical Register of January 1, 1849i, One ot America's most noted lady doctors, Maria 12. Zakrzewska,  was  a native  of   Berlin,   but  she   had  to leave the Gorman capital in consequence of the strong prejudice aroused against her.   That  was many years  ago,  and   the  lady .doctor, is  now  tolerated even on the continent. Even the  Far-East has its ladydoctors, the best  known   among   them   being  a Chinese  lady,  Dr.  Hu.

To check the alleged importation of  alien labor, the Sanilon Miners' Union  have sent the following dispatch to  Ottawa:  Sir Wilfred Laurier,  Ottawa;  1000 Canadian miners of the Slocan,  with their wives nnd families, are  being- driven out of Canada by the importation of labor from the Uniti d  States.   Mine owners of tlie Slocan are  SENSATION.

If the failure results  in injury to the business people, the  latter mnst place the blame on the  miners unions who interfered to prevent the former men from going to  work. ''  "I hnve suffered for some years with a  smothering sensation causod by heart  disease. The sovority of tho pains in my  hoart caused mo much suffering. I was  also vory norvous and my whole system  war run down and debilitatod.  "Hearing that Milburn's Heart and  Nervo  Pills  wore   a   specific   for   these  importing men to take our places.  Our   troubles, I thought I would try them, and  " wives nnd families 'and all others dependent on our labors, as well us we  ourselves, appeal to you.. Wo ask you  to assist us in securing tho en foremenc  of the Alien Labor Law. As British  subjects we'naturally resent the circumstances which arc driving us from  our native" land. Will you, as First  Minister of tho Crown, secure for us  thc protection which thc Alien Labor  Law provides ? Please assure us by an  immediate reply that we will have  your co-operation.  (Signed)    W. L. Hagxek,  Sec. Sandon Miners' Union.  Now, what aro the reasonable inferences la be drawn from this appeal.  They are that there are 10U0 miners,  all Canadians by birth, now in the Slocan with their wives and families; that  a largo percentage of them have wives  and families here; that the- owners are  trying to drive them out by reducing  wages.  In the first place, it is a question if  there are now,  all told, 500 miners in  the Pioenn;   and   it  is   a   reasonable  statement that not more than half the  number aro British subjects  by birth  or otherwise.     When   Mr. Cotton  was  here we understand   Mr. tTagler, himself, told that gentleman lhat about 70  per cent were British, by birth or naturalization.   It is also news to the people that they all, or even a large per  cent,  have  their wives  and   families  here.   It is safe lo say that never more  than  10 per cent of thc Slocan miners  had either wives or families with them.  It  would be a much  better argument  to all  concerned,   if Mr. Hagler  had  given the facts  in full���������that tho legislature had reduced   the working hours  -20 per cent;  that the owners have offered 37$ cents per hour against 35 cents  formerly paid,  and   the  unions want  44 cents, they having refused  41 cents  oifered by the Slocan Star,  and a fact  to bo considered too is that many ol  the men are indifferent miners.  It would also be well for Secretary  Hagler to advise Premier Laurier that  the owners made several attempts to  fill the mines with men from other  parts of Canada before they ever  thought of alien labor, and the unions  made just as many attempts to prevent  thoni from doing it. The premier  would be in a much better position to  act if he had all the facts connected  with the trouble before him. The Review has time and again said it would  like to see good resident miners getting  ������3.50 for 8 hours : but it cannot endorse  pistol acts���������where the legislature tries  to destroy the,will of the subject, and  where the unions try to force incompetent men on the owners under these  trying conditions.  got a box atMcLeod's Drug Store.

THE TRANSVAAL WAR.   i  That British arms must succeed in  South Africa   in  the   long   run, goes  without saying ; but, in the meantime,  it is evident there is more to reckon  with than was at first estimated.   The  Boers are better prepared for war than  ever England suspected.    They  have  more   fighting men,   who are   better  drilled and better supplied, and even  better generalled than was ever anticipated.     The   defeat   and subsequent  capture of White's column, near Lady-  smith, last week, is ample evidence of  that.    The generalship  enables them  to   appear  in   strength   often   where  strength  is least suspected^   White is  .censured severly in the English press  for the disaster; but whether from the  general expectations of warfare, he is  entitled to it is another matter.   It is  quite evident he expected no enemy of  strength in that quarter, as he took no  scouting precautions,  allowed his men  to go out unsupplied   with  ammunition for an important attack, and worst  of al! without means of communication  with hia strongholds.   His noble band  were simply surprised.   There may be  alack  of generalship in leaving  surprises  possible;   and it must  be acknowledged that While would not have  been trusted with his present responsibility, if it was not known he was pos-  Mr. McCunc,  of   the   Payne Mining  Co.,  lias told a Spokesman-Review reporter that it is  thc intention  of his  company  to  test tin?  validity  of thc  eight-hour  law   in the courts.     That  they   intend  to  put on some men 10  hours   underground as a  preliminary  step.    Tho Review  has all along contended  that testing the act   was  the  proper step   for the   mine owners   to  take ; but   Mr.  McCunc has  not   the  proper course  before him.   If lie does  as he intimates, it means dragging the  case through all the courts in the land,  which  is   unnecessary.     If   he   takes  that step,   thc government  would,  of  course, fine him   in the lower courts ;  the case   would then be appealed from  court ,to court by either thc coinpi.ny  or  thc   government   until   thc   Privy  Council   in   England,    the    court   of  last resort,   was reached.   There  is a  provincial act which provides  for carrying all such cases to the Privy Council at once,  which is the cheapest and  speediest way at it.   Unless it  is believed some of the lower courts would  declare tho eight-hour enactment ultra  vires of thc Provincial legislature and  that the   government would  abandon  the case after thc first adverse decision,  which is hardly  likely, carrying it to  tlie final court  at the   outset   is  the  preper course.  We will put a practical question to  Mr. Houston  ,of tho Nelson Tribune,  who appears to be  the especial champion of the eight-hour law in  the Nelson District, and for the bnnefit of the  public, we  would like  a straight answer.   Supposing the Tribune were paying men $3 a day for 9 hours work, and  a law was passed reducing thc working  hours 20 per cent,  bringing the clay to  G hours and 4S minutes, that the typographical union would in turn take in  all who had worked   at thc printing  business, without regard to the length  of time they were at it,  or their capabilities, and'demand for them S3.00 for  the 6 hours and 48 minutes day, would  he pay it as cheerfully as he denounces  thc Slocan'mino owners,  or would ho  call   tho  government   "damphools?"  Which ?  "' ��������� ' 1 1    \  Our neighbor thinks tho people of  Canada could buy the Canadian railways, and then sets out by placing tho  cost of the entire system at ������168,700,-  000. This is but a mere fraction of  what they cost, however. The C. P. R.  cost Canada $77,000,000 in cash 30,000,-  000 acres of "land, $00,000,000 more.  Tho Intercolonial eostS40,000,000 more.  The three items amount to much more  than our neighbor's total. Some of the  branch lines in this province average  S-10,000 a milo. Our neighbor need not  imagine that if the government proposed to take over the' roads the bonuses given the companies would be  taken into the count one way or the  other.  The country  woman is usually  V^ healthy and ro-  X_.. bust. If she ian't  it is generally because of her,own,  ignorance or neg-'  leet. She is a  hard working woman, but her sur-  ro'unding's are  ihealthy, and unless she has some  local weakness,  she bears her  heavy burden  without serious  ' < inconvenience.  The trouble with too many country women is that they do not sufficiently realize  the supreme importance of keeping healthy  in  a womanly way.     A  woman's general  health cannot be pood if Mie suffers   from  local weakness and disease.    If she suffers  111 this way, the strongest woman will soon  break down and become a weak, sickly,  nervous, complaining invalid.

The most of the Slocan  owners bought their properties, for the  prices agreed on, and paid for them, as  we presume the proprietors of tho Tribune bought and paid for their plant.  What they do with them is no more  the business of the public than what  thc owners of the Tribune do with  their plant. If the Tribune people  hired Chinese or Italians to do a portion of .their work we hardly think Mr,  Houston would take kindly to the  command if a section of the men he  formerly engaged should say he must  not do so; he would say they were running his business as well as their own.  We need not here refer to the hardships of the eight-hour law, but just  say that after the owners made several  attempts'tv bear with them and employ white labor, at an advance for.  services on the rates formerly paid in  What is Scott's Emulsion ?

SCOTT & BOVVNE, Chemists, Toronto.  To the Editor of the News-Advertiser:  Sir,���������Allow me to address a few  words to thoso concerned iu the most  serious question of thc day, among the  mining community in British Columbia : "Inspection of Metalliferous  Mince Act' Amendment Act 1899,  Claupo 13: No person shall be employed underground in any metalliferous mine for more than eight hours  in every twenty-four hours."  Although a statutory day's labor  consisting of S hours per day might be  accepted and welcomed by all as the  standard of an ordinary day's work;  yet tho requirements and conditions  governing thc demand for labor are so  variable that labor cannot be bound by  immutable laws nor even by severe restrictions without great loss and hardship to the whole community. The  stern rigidity of the above Clause 13  that prevents the mine owner employing any person in his mine more than;|8  hours in a day is also a severe restric  tion upon the miner, for it limits his  daily earning capacity to the amount  to the value of eight hours of his work  in one day.  This is the crtix of the present  strained relationship between the mine  owners and tho miners. It is a question of money! not time! Most men  care little how many hours they work,  so long as they earn more money.  Some men may be content to work  only sufficient to live, but such men  are not numerous in a civilized community; on the contrary, every day  experience teaches us that most men  are ready and cater to work "overtime;", therefore so long as "overtime"  is fairly paid for and the workers are  free to cease, work if they choose, overtime may be looked upon as a fortunate opportuity forcthose who have the  strength and industry, and wish to  benefit.themselves'by it. When the  Act became law, trouble arouse because the owners' wanted 10 hours'  work for ten hours' pay, and the men  would not accept less than the former  10 hours pay although the Act prevented them from working more than  8 hours underground. It was illogical  to expect that the mine owners would  pay the same wages for 8 hours' work  as they did for 10 hours ; or to expect  that the men would be content to limit  their earnings to ?3 per day when they  had been earning $3.50. A very serious deadlock at once occurred in the  Sandon and.Slocan districts; over 1,000  men have been thrown out of/work,  and development work has practically  ceased, and probably 500 men have ieit  the district.  The writer ventures tr make; the following suggestions, that.'might help  matters :  1. That the principle of 8 hours'  labor underground be accepted as the  limit of a statutory days's labor, and  the standard of a day's pay.  2. That the present law be relaxed  so as to allow oi mine.owners and miners making such temporary agreements  regarding overtime as will meet the  variable conditions of circumstances  and localities  Yours, etc.,  John O. Feuguson,  M. Inst., C.E.  Vancouver, B.C., October 21,1899.  When it comes'to healing- up old  running- sores of !o:-;g- standing there  is no remedy equal to Burdock Blood  Bitters.  Bathe the sore with thc B.B.B.���������  that relieves the local irritation.  Take the B.B.B. internally���������that  clears the blood of all impurities on  which sores thrive.  Miss D. Melissa Burke, Grindstone, Mag-dalen Islands, P.Q., says:  "It is with pleasure I speak in favor of  B.B. R. which cured mo of a running sore  on my leg. I consulted three doctors and  they gave me salve to put on, but it did no  good. Finally my le. became a solid  running sore. In fact tor nearly a month  I could not put my foot to the floor.  "I was advised to use B.B.B. and did  so. Three bottles healed up my leg entirely so that I have never been troubled  with it since."

Mr. Theophilus Templeton leaned  Sack very comfortably in his crimson  leather, brass nail-studded library-  ihair, rested his elbows on tho arms,  Drought the finger-tips together,, and  looked  very  benign  and  important.  "A rich man, eh ? Well, yes I am  a rich man���������what some people would  call a very nob man ; and the beauty  of it is, I made my fortune myself.  Whoa I started ouc for myself, a lad  of ten���������that's fifty years ago, or moro  ���������I had all my worldly goods iu a red  handkerchief, slung on a stick over  my shoulders. To-day���������I say it without boasting���������there's not a liner line  of steamships afloat than the 'Olytes,'  and I own 'em all���������every blessed baker's dozen of 'em."  Fred Warrington listened respectfully���������a handsome young follow, with a  wide-awake, frank look in his blue  eyes, and generally manly bearing  about him that recommended him  wherever ho went, very especially to  ladies.  "And yet, with all your wealth, your  beautiful homo, your kindly, affectionate nature, you have used all your life  in accumulating riches. You have  never married���������never had a real, true  homo," he obsorvod.  "That's the rankest kind of nonsense  my boy. X never married because I  never yet saw the woman 1 wanted.  Bat it's"a good thing for a young  fellow to settle down���������I believe that,  If I didn't practice it. I hope you'll  marry early, Fred."  iA little twinkling look was in Warrington's handsome face.  "1 agree with you there, sir, .to a  T.   1 think I shall marry early."  Mr. Templetoo bestowed a satisfied  look on him.  "All right, my dear boy 1 Marry  early, and marry to please me, and I'll  remember you handsomely. I'll givo  you a country house to live in in summer timo and thc town residence for  winter. I'll givo you ten thousand a  year income, and your wife shall have  the handsomest-diamonds Streets can  oolleot."  Any one in the world would have  thought Fred Warrington was transported to the seventh heaven of rapture at tho bewildering prospect held  out to him ; but he merely looekd a little graver as he bowed courteously.  "1  know  you are just as good and  generous as  it is possible for man to  be,   Uncle  Phil,   but���������"  Fred hesitated in his speech, and a  thoughtful frown, gathered on hia  forehead. ..-   (_ ,.���������"���������������������������  ���������  Air. Templeton looked the surprise  ho felt.  "'But'I .Where can the 'but' be to  such an offer as that? You've only  to marry to please me. By Jupiter,  Froderick ! it isn't possible you're already in love?"  "Already; and engaged to the sweetest and dearest little dar���������"  Mr. Templeton remorselessly out  short the loverlike enthusiasm.  "Oh, of course���������of course I But who  is she?   What is her name?"  "She is Miss Rossie Fleming, and she  Is a music-teacher, and her eyes are���������"  Mr. Templeton looked sternly across  the library-table.  "I don't care whether they are black  or green, you can't marry her. I've  picked out a wife for you, and t the  quicker you oan get- clear of your  music-teacher the better."  Fred colored���������then the look of wild-  eyed defiance Uncle Phil was acquainted with, came into his eyes, making  them  deep  and  darkly  blue.  "1" beg your pardon, sir,", he said  quietly, "but a fellow prefers to pick  out his own wif e. ��������� I have chosen Miss  Fleming." ,!  "The deuce you ha've 1 Well, then,  let's hear what you have to say when  I tell you the lady I have in my eye  for my future niece is the most beautiful, cultured, refined girl who ever  flashed into society. She's rich, too,  and just the very daisy for you. A  music-teaoher, indeed, when Beatrice  Lovett is to be had for the askingl"  "Which doesn't raise her in my  estimation," Fred avowed, serenely-  "Whatl" Mr. Templeton said sternly.   "Fred, you're a���������a���������fooll"  And then Fred laughed, which had  a most exaspera ting elfect upon the  old gentleman.  "1 say you shall marry hor, and 1  want you to put on your hat and go  with rue at once, and be introduced to  her I She's staying at Mrs. Saxony's.  Come along, sir."  Fred rose promptly.  "Certainly; I'll go and be presented  to hor, and I daresay there will be no.  reason why I shall not admire her immensely. But as for falling in love  with Miss Lovett���������"���������  He laughed and shrugged his broad  shoulders, then put on bis hat, and  went out with Mr. Templeton to meet  tho charming young lady intendedjfor  his destiny.  It was a beautiful' little villa, not  far from Mr. Templeton's stately mansion; a little back from the Parade,  and it made a very pretty picture,  with its white lace draperies floating  in the stiff sea breeze, and the spray  from the fountains blowing in a rainbow shower, and the gay, striped  awnings fluttering their scalloped  borders in the July sunshine.  The liveried footman bowed his best,  and regretted to be obliged to inform  the gentleman that Mrs. Saxony was  not in. A swift look of dismay on Mr.  Templeton's face perhaps touched  that functionary's tender heart, for he  hastened  to  assure  them  that "Miss  Lovott    was  in    the    drawing-room���������  would they walk in?"  But that Mr. Templeton declined doing, as he was not personally acquainted with Miss Lovett; at lease, not sufficiently acquainted with her to present himself. lie had known her when  she was a girl of ten, and had always  been her father's most cherished  friend, and had been in correspondence  with Mr. Lovett when that gentleman  died so suddenly in .India ; but all the  same, with an old bachelor's characteristic shrinking from pretty young  girls, he declined tho invitation until  Mrs. Saxony should be present."  "It's too bad���������too bad I" ho said, as  they went through the beautiful little  park, into which carriages were not  admitted; and impelled by an impulse  he recognized afterward as Fate, Mr.  Templeton paused midway down tho  path, and turned to look back at Mrs.  Saxony's  house.  "By .Tove I There she is at the window���������Miss Lovett I Isn't she a beauty?  Isn't she sweet enough to turn any  fellow ' topsy-turvy ? Look, Fred ���������  there's the wife I've picked out for  you 1 Can your music-teacher beat  that?"  And Mr. Templeton seized hia unoffending nephew by tho sleeve, and  gesticulated emphatically toward the  )pen window, where a girl sat, beauli-  ^tll indeed���������marvelously beautiful, fair  ,tnd Jainty���������with dark, lustrous hair,  braided on a proud little head, and  straight, heavy, dark brows, that  made the -purity of hor complexion-  still more dazzling. A rosebud of a  .mouth, a round, hanclsomely-chi'sled  chin, a white dress, with creamy lace  and a pink rose at her throat, made  a picture fair enough to indeed have  turned any man's senses "topsyturvy."  She did not raise hor eyes from her  book, and she was unconscious of thoir  espionage, or of Fred Warrington's  cransfixed  gaze.  "So you're struck, eh? So you'll  givo the old man credit for having  good taste, will you ? You wouldn't  mind having her for your wife, after  all,  I suppose I"  Fred drew a long breath", then quickly linked his arm in Mr. Templeton's,  and drew that gentleman away.  "She is the sweetest, most beautiful  I ever saw. I'll marry her to-morrow,  if she'll have me," he said.  And how the old gentleman laughed!  "Music-teacher notwithstanding,  oh ?" he said.  And then Fred laughed, and Mr.  Templeton generously decided not to  bo too   sarcastic on the poor boy.  Almost at the same moment a fall,  lovely girl, several years older than  the fairy in white by the window in  Mrs. Saxony's drawing-room, entered  and  went  up  to her.  "Absorbed in your book still, Ros-  sie? It is time for my lesson, isn't  it?"  And Rossie Fleming laid down   her  book,  and  for  an  hour she and Miss  Beatrix Lovett devoted themselves to  ' the music lesson, to be interrupted by  I About the House. Wr i  TO'AM USE   TBE  CHILDREN.  a gentleman who had bribed the footman to permit him to enter the music-  room unannounced, and to whom Rossie flew, with a little shriek, of delight..   - .   ��������� :���������'���������  "Fred���������oh, Fred 1 .How did you  know I was in Brighton? I only  came yesterday to assist Miss Lovett  with her music. This is Miss Lovett,  Fred���������Mr.  Warrington, Miss Lovett."  And before he had finished his very  deligthtful call, Mr. Warrington related to the ladies the mistake; his  uncle had made '������������������'���������������������������'  ' An|d I am sure Miss Lovett will not  blame me if I' insist that I shall  marry you, little Rossie, and the sooner the better, before Uncle Phil discovers his mistake." ������������������- ,  And the next week there was a quiet  wedding while Mr. Templeton was taking his snooze in his chair, with his  handkerchief over his face, dreaming  of the days when beautiful Miss Lovett  would reign royally in his nephew's  home.    ' .'  At eight o'clock the same night he  was electrified by the receipt of a note  from Fred:  "I have been and gone and done it,  Uncle Phil," it said. "I promised you  I would marry the lady you selected  for'me; and 1 shall present her to.you,  in an hour. There's nothing like  striking when-the iron's hot, is there?".  And punctually to time Fred appeared, his bride on his arm���������lovely as the  morning, blushing like a rose, her blue  eyes shining like stars, her sweet, red  mouth quivering as she looked wistfully up' into Mr. Templeton's face when  Fred presented her.  "Wo've quito stolen, a march upon  you; but this is my wife, .Uncle Theo-.  pliilus���������Mrs. Fred Warrington, fast  and sure."  "I'm astonished, and dumbfounded,  and delighted, my dear. However did  you do it, Fred?"  But before Fred could make the explanation he deemed incumbent, a servant' announced a lady, who came  sweeping in in garments of deep purple velvet���������a girl with starry eyes and  hair as goldeu as sunshiue.  "Miss Beatrice Love.tt 1" said tho  servant.  And then���������well, the scene is indescribable, but with two lovely women  beseeching him to forgive, and tho  pansy-purple eyes making him feel  tho queerest around his heart he ever  had felt, somehow���������he never knew how  ��������� Theophilus Templeton simmered  quietly down, and accepted the situation with the best grace at his command until six months afterward,  when he triumphantly announced to  his nephew that the luckiest day of  his life had been when he mistook Rossie for Miss Lovett.  "For since you wouldn't have her for  your wife, you shall have her for your  aunt, and help yourself if you can 1"  jBu't, as no one was at all anxious [to  help it, Mr. Templeton married his  beautiful young wife, and it is a  question who of the quartet is the happiest.  As tho cold, stormy days approach  tho little ones will bo obliged to be  kept in the houso more and more and  lhey will consequently need something  to amuse themselves with. If the  mother is ingenious sho can contrive  all sorts of playthings from odds and  ends at a very small outlay. From  an exchange wo take tho following  which may be appreciated by some and  which may lead to original ideas and  afford the Iittlo ones much, pleasure  Ono mother whose children-were domestic in their tastes procured some  pasteboard boxes aoubt twenty-four by  eighteen incnes, and nine inches high,  and made a house and barn. There  were plenty of old pasteboard boxes to  cut up for partitions and furniture.  She made kitchen, pantry and dining-  room in one box; in tho other called  for the pattern. Thoy also make pret  ty coverings for the tables and beds.  The chairs, tables, bods, etc., 'rare  cut Crom pasteboard, more or less  fancy, according to the skill of the  artist. Then a family of paper dolls  was cut to inhabit tho house. They  were clothed from some of the bright  paper. Another box has been made  into a barn, with pasteboard stalls,  mangers and stanchions, being divided  into compartments for horses and cattle, with a place between for hay ; the  hay is represented by very thin little  board; the pitchforks, shovels, ham-  papers. The horses, cows and calves  are made of pasteboard, and are fed  regularly on paper rations; the cover  to the box is sot one side for a barnyard, in one corner of which are the  tank and windmill, made also of paste-  Ike upright, was the sitting-room and  bed-room. The partitions have to be  cut to fit tight, or they- will always  bo tumbling down.  Double doors were cut between sitting-room and bedroom, and pretty  little scraps of 3ilk, lace or velvet used  for porliers. Tho pink and green  papers in which so many packages  come wrapped were cut Ln fancy patterns for carpets, which! let the white  of the bottom of the box Bhow through  mors, etc., are made of stiff pasteboard. A small shoe-box, with pasteboard wheels and tongue Is tho wagon,  and wrapping cord is utilized for the  harnesses. A handsome rag doll can  be made of cloth, ii one is handy about  such things, and they are often preferred to a more expensive ono.  ���������An elephant, made of gray cloth  with a small red blanket on, is greatly  enjoyed' by children, especially, when  playing circus.  A pair of lines, one inch wide and  three yards long, can be knit of odds  and ends, and are very serviceable  when the chairs are used for horses,  or when one clild drives another.

Lake Superior appears to exeroise a  greater effect upon the annual ainount  of perpipita.tion of rain and snow near  its shores than other of the Great  Lakes. The average precipitation in a  year is about eight inches greater on  the southern than on the northern side  of Lake Superior. Lakes Erie and Ontario also show more precipitation on  their, southern tba,n on their northern  shores, but the difference ia only-  three inches annually. In.the case of  Lakes Huron and Michigan, it is tho  easterii shores as, compared with the  westorn whic,h.got the largest precipitation, but the difference is not  ereat.       ��������������� .

It certainly seetma at first sight to  bo an economic danger uhis educating of the laboring man and woman to  be far loo good for laborer's work,  say-3 tho Nineteenth Century. Let  us oast, our thoughts, howevor, over  a wider horizon, and see how tho decades that bring the peril are also  bringing the iemody. Science is  steadily sweeping away all those humblest classes of employment. Hardly  a.ny man has now. to loll yip ladders  with the hod of bricks mpon his shoulder. Tho donkey engine does tha  purely animal part of the work. Tha  reaper is replaced by the machine and  tho ploughman is fast receding as tho  sloani plough makes its appearance.  Wo rarely soe long lines of men, laden  with coal bags, running up planks as  in thc olden days. The need of men to  do tho work of horses is steadily diminishing.  Jt is true that, science has by no  means_ conquered the whole domain.  There is still miuioh scrubbing of floors  to be. done by .men and women on  bended knees; and coal is still hewn  out with pick and axe, and tho use of  muscle, with but little uso of brains.  And yet, oven in oorr fertile country,  scienco never works by revolution but  only by progress. One domain after  another has gono. , Where are now  tine armies of wafer carriers, and  chair porters, and night, imen and sawyers wholm our grandfathers used to  require ? Imagine, if sbips had still to  be moved by galley rowers what millions would be doomed to  A BEAST-LIKE TOIL.  Some parts of tihie ibig, domains of ua  roflected labor will long bo loft run--  touched, but tho progress is going forward, and it is 'clear lihat whilo education is rendering the lower classes  unfit for the humblest sorts of occupations, science is steadily sweeping  away these occupations. If would be  too much to hope that these processes  should ,be at all times strictly proportioned to ono another. But in the  general drift of things they are compensatory, and if we only givo to  science a reasonable tiino if will leave  us none of that labor to be done which  requires  an  uneducated laborer.  Then .coines tho uneasy question as  to   what  is to  become  of, tho  classes  thus    deprived    of    occupation.      Tha  working    classes    lihtemselvea      often  ciurso  the  progress of  invention,  and '  aro  letnipled    to  look upon    it as  no  friend  to    their    welfare.   There  are  now. it is true, no longer any machino-  broaking  frenzies;   but  the  difficulty  often  arises in an  aouito,  though silent,    suffering.      Unfortunately    society has always to travel to permanent good through transitory ills. Whoa  an   army  of compositors  is 'dismissed  because soime one 'has invented a machine there is excuse .for som������ bitterness of feeling.     And .yet tbere was a  Ikae    wion    a. wholo army  of manuscript    book copiors    had to give way  beforo tih'e advent of the compositor.   .  ���������Bu.c the difficulty  is  always evanescent,   for  here,  too,   there  are  compensating influences at work.     For' if  science, is abolishing    occupations    ab  the lower end of the scale, she is creating    hew ones   at the    top.   Think if  the hundreds of thousands of men who  in England arc now employed in callings that had no existence sixty yeara  ago;    the    telegraphers,  , and: phono-  graphers, arid machinists of a hundred  kinds.   In   the    last  decade    or  two,'   ,  what an.   army of    skilled men have  been' demanded by the invention of the  bicycle,    for    telephone    and   electric  light I   As. compared  with  the  beginning of the century,' think of the long  array   of  marine  and   locomotive  engineers, tihe chemists, the journalists,  the    draughtsmen,  the  teachers,    the,  postmen,    railway   porters  and   tram  conductors. ���������"���������'��������� What    a multitude    of  callings   are  thero    which .are  eithpi-  new  or  else newly: stocked,) so .that,  wbilo  the population has quadrupled,.  their' ranks  have  been, ���������miulliplied    a  hundredfold.      But  it is  the  entirely  NEW EMPLOYMENTS  that strike the mind- most forcibly,"  and any oae who runs his eyie down a  census of the occupation's of the people will satisfy .himself that in England of tlhe' present- day one-fifth  part of the adult male population fiad  their livelihood in callings that had  no existence when the century, began.  Thus while science takes away with  one hand it liberally bestows avith the  other ; but what it .Lakes away aro tho  low class occupations, and what it  gives are tho high class oaies, demanding IntOjlliigeJu-e and cuilt'ivating it.  The. general tendency is therefore,  humanizing. ���������     ,  But, of courso, it never happens that  the coalhoavor, when thrown out of  work by the introduction of a sleatm  crane,'can go away and get a place in7  one of tho newly created superior callings. He is not su<\h a fool as to  waste hin tiau/e in applying- for an  ojpejuug as an electrical engineer.  But thero is a. gradual creeping up  that is always taking place. And yiet  the transfer is much less effected by  the promotion of individuals than byj  promotion of generations. No doubt  it sometimes happens that the intelligent phiinber steps into tihe new opening for an electrical engineer, aud  loaves a gap w,hk-h sour* one of an inferior calling steps into, the gaps be- ,  ing filled in suu;ces.siou until perhaps  the riveter, thrown put of work by the  introduction of hydraulic machiuory,  finds a vacancy at last and ste.ps into  it. But it more frequently happens  that the plumber educates his son to  be an electrical : engineer, and i lie  iafte.fi- uipttlrcubicvfts his boy to I lie  plumber, and Lhe clock laborer sees his  young folk aspiring to be carters.  Thus the general drift of.the whole  social scale is steadily .mpward'in pro-  l>ortion as scienco provides intelligent,  occupations at the upper end' and abolishes those that aro more or less  brutolike at the lower, and so hutuuin-  it.v as a whole is the. gainer. Thero  is, therefore, no reason to fool uneasy  at a prospect of overeduoatwn,.

It was after dinner, and we sat in a  quaint, squarp hall, before the brilliant tiro of blazing logs. The light  gouiis of the women were, here and  there, shadowed by tho black coals of  the men. The gay stream of talk  lhat had flowed out from; the dinner-  table gradually deejwuiied into Lhe  more subdued interelringo of (bought  and experiences, and under the influence of the changing pictures in the  fire and the soft light of the lamps  turned   to  the  weird  and  unknown.  Then the narrator, taking his cigar  from his lips, ,told '.is the following,  and as his rich voice spoke of strange  and weird fulfillnunt we drew closer  together and were glad of the cheer  ful  blaze upon the hearth:  Does any one here believe iu dreams  as lore-runners or warnings of events?  Personally, I never did. I3uL three  years ago I had an experience that  caused ihe to consider them from a  new i-dint of view and that not a  pleasant point.  "Do yoa reiinvjinber Fred Carter? Big  Fred, always quietly.oheerful and up-  to-date on most things going' that had  nothing to do with imagination ? Not  thai he. was utterly devoid of imagination ; he had just enoughl not to make  him loo mat ter-of-fact and keep him  healthily   adjusted.  "At least, that is the way I would  have thought of it if I had had occasion to'analyze him menially, but  I'm not much given to analysis, and  Fred wasn't the kind of fellow to suggest if.  "But one night I somewhat changed  my opinion. 1 met him at tbe club,  looking hollow-eyed and jaded. '  "'What's  the  matter?'  1 asked.  ' "Don't sleep very well,' was his laconic answer.  ." 'Insomnia ?"  " 'No,' gloomily.   T wish it was.'       ,  " 'Humph I' 1 said to myself.  'Trouble.      Can't  be money,  for Fred  was  rich,  with questions.'  " 'Well, old fellow,' I said aloud, ending the pause during which L had been  trying* to thank how to put my willingness to serve hlim into words without  pressing the mailter further than he  wanted to go.' 'If it's anything in  which I can serve you, be sure to call  on me.'  'That's just it,' he replied, staring  of air and cihunge 'of scene; his physical health was perfect; his mind was  untifumme'ed by a care or bridea; he  was temperate in every walk of life.  What explanation then could I suggest ?��������� Absolutely none.  " 'The more idea of sleep has become  hatefuil to me,' he -went on. .'I hate  night to coime. I put off going to bed  as long as I can hold off, or when I do  go I try to be so worn out I shall  sleep without dreaming. But it's no  use���������(he instant I lose grip of myself  that dream pounces upon me.'  " 'There is only one remedy I can  suggest,' I said, trying to speak lightly, 'and that Is, fall in love. Get your  mind so absorbed with ono subject  Uiat no other can possibly squeeze in,  and love in the only monopoly that  doesn't admit others.     Try it.'  Illo shook his head. 'Duos one fall in  love simply by making up one's mind  to do it'{'  Lie fell into gloomy silence. Suddenly he raised his head with a determined   jerk.  ���������'���������I swear I'll master ill I'll keep  going morning, noon and night���������do everything that one can do to keep  thought dead, and tire iail the body.  Then  1 will  be mister,  not  it!"  "For tho next two weeks I was out  of- town. When 1 mot Fred again,  one look at his face fold me that ho  had   boasted  in  vain. t  " 'Look here, Fred,' I said, with a  thought that seemed to me then a  heiiven-borh iii>,piralion, it came ��������� to  me so suddenly. 'I'm off next week on  an exploring trip'to South Africa ; bettor get your kit together and' come,  too.' It was only by an effort 1 saved  myself from addintr: 'It will do you  good.' <��������������������������� <  "For a moment ho brightened at the  suggestion, but then relapsed into his  previous hopeless dejection. By dint  of talking it over, iliowever, and going  into detail of the scientific part ofthe  trip, I gradually got him interested  and when, a week later; I set off he  was my companion.   ,  "We left in tlie evening.

You've saved me, old  fellow, you've saved me,' and his gratitude was pathetic.  "And so it was the rest of the trip,  and his spirits rose with every night  he passed in dreamless sleep, and when  "They had done the deed well, without a betraying sound. .A spear was  through his throat I"  "As I looked dowa into the wide-op-  ea eyes, they seemed : to cry up to  miue: 'My dream!

Dale, tho young man who discovered gold in tho Rainy Lake country, has been crowned Queen in hor  place, suys a Fort Francis, Ont., letter.  Suoh is tbe news that has been  brought to tbe settlements along tho  ���������Rainy River by an Indian runner, and  if is the first information of a definite  character that has reached the outside  world from the Indian country for  nearly three years, when' Dale, who  had been prospecting ia that regioa  with two compaaioas, returaed lo Ft.  Francis, accompaaied by the youag  woman who is now his wife, and related a talc so startling that its truth  was doubted.  Dale said he bad discovered a storehouse full of gold, and had had a narrow escape from death at the hands of  the Indians, who, he said,' called themselves tha Ungavas, and! had a white  woman for a Queen. He,, with his  companions, had been assisted to escape by the young woman, the daughter of the Queen, who had later fled  with Dale.  Dale and the girl were married in Ft.  Francis several weeks after their    ar-  oumulated for many years, talked free-i"  ly witb them.  According to tho story, oil the wo-"  man, she was stolen by the Indian*  when she was about 13 years of age<  from her parents, who were among  the first white people to settle in tha?  Ft. Francis country. She had been  taken before'the .chief, then ayoung  man, who, infatuated with her beauty,  had claimed her as his wife. To them  was born one child, the young woman,  who now sat beside hor, and at tha  death of the chief; several "years before,  the widow had beoome the ruler of tha  tribe, which, driven North by the Sioux,  had settled in this rich gold-bearing  country.  Dale and his companions could see  but little hope for themselves, especially as they had admitfod they were ifl  soarch of gold. The fact ' that! thoy  wore placed under a ��������� Jieavy guard after their interview with tho Queen  did not tend to raise their spirits, and  they felt sure lime death was bul a  few days away, at the most. However,  Dale was full of resource and was very  attractive.  We will leave here to-night," calmly announced Dale one evening, afte*  ho had spent most of the day in walking about tho village with Nita, the  Queen's daughter. "Fact is, I have  made an impression on Nita, and she'a  going to elope with me. You boys are  going to be shown the way out' about  midnight, after which Nita and I wil]  visit the treasure cave, take what gold  wo  can carry and  then join you."  The preparations of the three men  for their departure were soon made,  and thoy silently stole out, into thc  night. Guided by a figure wrapped  in furs they started for the mountains,  As they began the upward journey  Dale-fell behind, and they saw him  fade into tho night with the guide,  whom  they knew was  Nita.  After a hard journey through" tha  wilderness tho two men arrived safely,  in Ft.

In the gizzard of each duck  was found considerable gold, some of  it quite pure, and some of iii mixed  with sand and gravol or bits of peculiar  rock.  "That rock came from the far  aorth, from the Hudson Bay country,"  said Dale, after critically examining  the contents of the gizzard of one of  the birds, "and when we find where  the rock came from wcH will also find  where there is gold in unlimited quantities."  Procuring supplies In Ft. Francis the  little party set out to find the gold  fields. For several days they traveled, passing through a country which  for wildness and'general desolation  probably has no equal outside of  Alaska. On all sides stretched ai vast  piuo forest, as yet untouched by the  hand of man, only broken here and  there by niighty masses .of rock; or extensive swamps, in which wild rice  grew in'profusioa.  After several days of hard traveling they came to a range of mOuataias;  plainly the. divide of1 tne couatry over  which they had passed aad the territory further to the aorth.  Ascending the mouataas they saw at  1'ts base a lake, the edges bordered ia  places with wild rice, and ia which  countless thousands of ducks of all  kinds were swimming, and feeding. Beyond the lake, a few miles away, was  what appeared to be a village of circular-tents, the white walls standing  out boldly against Jhe ivirgia forest of  dark piaes beyoad. It was barely noon  when the three men reached the foot  of the mountain and halted on tho  shore of the lake, whose sandy beach  showed traces of' gold. Hardly had the  prospectors paused near the water's  edgo whea a party of 20 or more Indians, dressod in furs, and carrying  firoaruis of an antiquated pattern,  stepped from the wild, rice, with their  weapons on a level with the;breasts of  the startled men. As the gold seekers wore greatly outnumbered they did  not even attempt a resistance. .Their  rifles were taken from them, and with  a guard ahead and a guard behind  they marched along the shore, of the  lake to the village.   . /'���������  THE WHITE QUEEN.  Finally they were led into a huge in-  closure, where they were token before  a raised platform, upon which sat a  white woman, about 60 years of age,  as near as they t could judge, and a  younger woman, not over 21 or 25 with  a face that plainly showed .both Cau-  oassiaa and Iadian blood. Both of the  women were loaded down with orna-l  meats of gold, roughly fashioned, and  strung on what looked like pieces of  rawhide.  They received the strangers gravely,  but seemed to take kindly to Dale from,  the first, and under, the impressioa  that he already kaew of a secret cave  ia which the tribe's gold had been ac-  FRENCH FINANCES.  The   KnTcrntiiriit   Hn-> Gone Into the   Aa  verllslnc Business to Help Its Trcn'iir.i.  Fraace, whose national debt has been  growing every day since it paid its  milliards of redemption money (o Germany, after lexhiausting apparently,  every conceivable means of taxation,  has lately (aken to advertising as a  means of money making. This method  had already been seized upon by numerous municipalities which have sold  the spiace on certain public buildings  to advertisers, As the railway stations, gendarmeries, custom houses, entrepots, barracks and numerous other  publirf buildings, as well as the packages! in which several kinds of monopoly goods are sold, are entirely under  the control of the Government^ it is  evident that it has advertising facilities at its command which entirely  eclipse iii extent and value anything  that private advertisers can offer. The  value of these may be greatly enhanced by legal restrictions upon the owners of private property, preventing the  sale of  space  for  similar  purposes.  The* latest device of this sort is the  "let.r.e annonces," or advertising postpaid letter sheet. One half the sheet,  of ordinary letter size paper and rather, poor quality, is devoted to advertising, except a space about 41-4 by, 5  1-2 inches^reserved for the address, on  which is printed a fifteen-centime postage stamp. The letter is written on  the other half of tho sheet, whict is ���������  thon ingeniously folded and held by  a gummed flap. The whole thing is  sold for 10 centimes; (hat is, two thiids  of the price of single letter postage,  or exactly the same as a- postal  card.  By this means the publisher savoa  one third the postage and gets his paper! and envelope for nothing. Nominally the scheme is worked' by a corporation, Sociote Anonyme ; but, as it. kciIs  postage at one third off and has; its  wiares for sale at the postoffices and  Government! tobacco shops, it is practically a Government enterprise. The  new system will evidently take the  place of the postal card; it will decrease the sale of postage stamps, but  tho receipts from the advertising will  enable the Government to make a sub.  stantial profit out of the project.  "TOMMY ATKINS."  . "Tammy Atkins," has become the  nick-aamcf of the British soldier from  the ftict that the printed forms used  in the army have the name "Thomas  Atkins," printed to indicate where the  user should write his name.
