Here the.corn is 'never seen  i!|)W,' the fruit trees never bud. nor  >>|ie (lowers...ever, bloom.   The sur-  ���������Jtelings are mountains, whose slopes  (,'srimeval forests, and. whose crests  |(|Everlasting shows.

I confess that its beauty exercises over  me a.fascination and  a power that no !  other miinifestution of nature, .that' I  have yet beheld,  can be compared to.'  And what adds perhaps  to my amaze-;  merit is the fact that all this marycl-  lous natural scenery should have boen j  completely hidden from the appreoia-;  tion  of civilized man till but a   few-  shortiyears ai;o.   I doubt if evsn  tliei  holdout and   bravest of   the  red men ���������'.  penetrated  these 'mountain fastnesses  or ever boated en   the waters of these  lovely lakes.   To-day the iron iiorse of:  eivilizaticn rolls along the shore's  of j  Slocan   lake and  awakes  a  thousand;  echoes along those glorious mountains, j  To-day Canadian Pacific steam boats j  ply from shore to shore,  and plough  enchnnting waters," which are almost  too sacred for tUe gondola of the artist i  or the lover..  But where are tl-icywho  gave  this: Slocan country  to  Canada  and to man ?    Where.are  those" prospectors���������those pioneers of civilization  ���������who : .first discovered   the   fabulous  treasuresi storedin thc ,;bonom of the  mountains of this lovely land ? ;7  The first two, Jack Seaton arid; Eli  .Carpenter,-', are. both, reported,. dead.  Carpenter gave his name to the^crcek  that Jlows by.Sandon arid ThreeForks,,!  and that creek will give him.: imnior-1  tality. It was. prospecting along this ;  creek ..seven years,'7 ago that they j  stumbled upon the Pay no mine. It is i  a rich galena or silver-lead mine, and j  when they found it they hastened ;  back to Ainsworth .to have the. ore '  assayed. Some .disagreement arose-i.  between.them,.'and Seaton returned to j  the. district with Jack McGuigan, Jack j  Hennessey and Bill-Hennessey.; They i  arrived before Carpenter, and���������'"I hoy. i  .located the' Maid of Erin', the Moun- \ fera |  tain Chief, and ' the Two' Jacks���������allj ;***������  extensions of the Payne,'7 and tken'j fea^  located the. -Noble Five,, the ��������� Last' vy  Chance and '.' anumber 'of ptliers.

Those.were dark days  for the old colony, for ruin  and desolation followed  in the wake of war.   The oldest, and  wealthiest families were   reduced   to  poverty, and there was nothing left for  the youth of thc country  but' to seek  for fortune in fresh fields and pastures.  Johnny Harris, while still a mere boy,  came to thc mining regions of Idaho.  He was young, inexperienced and Of  slight physique, and for years worked  at odds and ends, and worked thc fickle  goddess-of fortune with a most admirable persistency.   Even in  those clays  Johnny Harris was a-dreamer.

Those wove thoir uanics���������Jimmy and  Jtuio. Everybody in tho village knew  them; (buy "and many friends; yet all  agreed with wonderful unanimity that  thoy woro two of tliu strangest individuals ever  seen.  Jimmy���������bis full name was James  Bradford���������was abaebclur of about fifty  yearn, reputed to havo a stocking full of  gold and silver coins, which he kept in  his feather bod. He was a noted- hntor of  women, und seldom upoke to one.  Juno���������or more properly Miss Jano  Green���������was called an old maid, lived in  a tiny houso by herself; and had a holy  horror of the. bipod man. Her age was  "uncertain,!' but her forlioth birthday  was of tho past.  Jimmy took life easily, but was opposed to ostentation and the modern  acceptation  of  (ho (orin "luxury,"  Ho dressod without regard to fashion,  but within the bounds of respectability.  He even rode out .in. his own carriage  but it was by no moans a modern vehicle; it had done aorvioe.he would proudly tell you, since his grandfather's  days,  quite a century  ago.  He cared litllo for books; society he  abominated, because it wus Bpoilcd by  admitting womon, and of the fow diversions that .went to make up.lho sum of  his life's pleasures, fishing hold tho  plnoo ot prominonco.    .  Even in the pursuit of this gratification Jimmy was not freo from harassment, for he was obliged to pass vby'the  door of a cottage occupied by a woman  in order to reach the rivor. The woman was no other than June.  One bright afternoon iu Sop! ember,  Jimmy was lounging along tlie river  bonk when tho splash of oars'.in midstream foil upon liis ears. Ho lookod  in the direction of tho sound, and ;thon  a scowl  wrinklod his forehead.  "Humphl" he muttorod, "that old  maid, Jane Green, Is trying to row-over  to Ned Brown's. She'd bolter be to  homo,, drinkin' tea. Most likely she'll  manage to get drowned. What a fuss  she makes, splashin' an' flappin" about.'  Ho pulled lip his lino with an "angry  jerk, put afresh worm oh the hook,  and.thon cast, out the lipe again, with  an outlay ot strength quite unnecessary, unless to give, vent to his indignation.  The "splashin' an' flappin' about," instead of dying away in the distanco  as the boat neared tho other side of  the river, .grew louder and moro disturbing, and halt in wonder, half anger, Jimmy  looked around again.  "Drat the luck!" he' cried. "If sho  ain't gone an' rowed right smack inter  that eddy���������the only one within two  miles at that. 'It that ain't jest liko  a fool woman. I'd like to know what  'tis  like."  Just then his attention .was attracted to his line, and Jano's peril  was for a moment forgotten.  A forcible reminder came in the form  of a loud piercing scream, followed By  a frightened appeal  for help.  "There, jest as might ha' been expected. The first bite I've had for an  hour, an' that miser'ble woman had to  let out a screech an' scare the fish  away."  "Help 1 Help! I shall drow-n!"scream-  ed the woman.  There Was no question about it Miss  Jane was in great peril. Her boat, an  old leaky shell���������was twirling about the  rapid, rotary motion causing at frequent intervals foamy waves to splash  over its sides/and it bade fair ,to sink  in short order.  "Let her drown!" growled tho woman-hater savagely. "There'll bo ono  less woman;���������gosh I she will go down  as sure as fate. Bein' a sort of human  critter, I s'pose I'llhev to pull her out,  er the neighbors''ll lynch me."  His own boat happpened to be near  at hand, and a few rapid strokes  brought him as near the eddy as safety    (permitted.  "Here!" eriod he, grumblingly, as he  threw out a rope, "ketch hold of that,  if you don't' want to drown."  Miss Jane had been so occupied with  her fears and struggles that, up to this  moment she was unaware that assistance ;had arrived. At the sound of his  voice she turned quickly.  Hor hasty movement caused the boat  to go down, but she clung heroically to  the oars and regarded her would-be  rescurer with a look of horror.  "Merciful powers! Jimmy Bradford,  of  all  men   loinme  drown!"  "Don't   be    a   tarnation    fool,  Jane  Green! Ketch hold of that, rope an' I'll'  pull you out."  "Never!" cried Jane, spurting out a  stream of water from her mouth and  paddling desperately with both hands  ������o keep    afloat.  "Then I'll     pull    ye    out, anyhow!"  ejaculated Jimmy.   "I never knew any  livin' woman had such grit. You're too  plucky for fish bait, an' I'll save *ve, i  whether  er no."  Despite Jane's gurgled protests, he  hurriedly hauled in the rope, formed  a slipnoose at one end, and hurled it  over the half drowned woman's shoulders. Then he exerted his strength in  a vigorous pull, which Jane resisted  with all her waning powers, and succeeded in  lifting her into the boat.  "O dearl" she gasped. "And to think  that I should owe my life to Jimmy  Bradford,"- and then, too much exhausted to bear up longer, she closed  hei* eyes and fainted away.  "Wuss on' wuss!" oried Jimmy. "Did j  ever  a man   hev such   luok?  What  in  the  world  am  I goin'g   to  do  with a  /aintin', half-drowned woman, i-'d like  to know! I've halt a wnd to loAve Cher  I here in the boat an' start for home."  But he didn't. , He did precisely the  opposite.  Ho drew the boat upon the sloping  shore, and liter carrying Miss Jane to  a sheltered spot beneath a wide-spreading willow tree, proceeded to restore  her to consciousness.' When she opened, her eyes lho first thing that mot  her gaze was Jimmy's face.  "O, mysoull" she gasped, feebly,  'Am,I in the power of the Evil One?"  "Draw it a little mild, Jano Green.  I. ain't the Evil One, nor no kin [to  him as I knows on. An' you're show-  in' mighty Iittlo appreciation for hav-  in'g your  life saved, I caD tell ye."  "Wall," said Jane; after a moment'?  thought, "perhaps I was a little too  harsh. I s'pose thero are wuss boin's  on tho fa&e ofthia airth than you be.

An interesting battle was recently  witnessed by Mr. Ernest Hose in the  jungle at Tambak in Borneo. A young  pig had been seized by a python which  was rapidly strangling it, when its  cries brought to its assistance about  twenty of its comrades. The pigs immediately made a combined assault upon the monstrous snake, goring it with  their tusBs, and keeping up the attack so boldly and vigorously that tho  python at length dropped its viotim  and tried to iuh away. Thereupon, Mr.  Hose took a fart in the battle and succeeded 'in killing the snake.   . j  the casLern sections will first arise,  Thomas Harper, sergeant-trumpeter"  in t;u;'en Victoria's household, who recently died in London, assisted in his  p.ofus ion il capari.y at the to onation  of \VilUaui IV'., and the christenings,  of all the present Queen's children.

FACTS ABOUT.WATER.  There    are   some   strange    features  ANOTHER   HOBSON.  "Lieutenant Hobson's deed of bravery on the Morrimac," writes an'English army officer, "recalls an' English boy of the same name, Hobson,  born at Bonchurch, Isle of Wight,  whoso drunken father apprenticed hia,  to the village : tailor, who used him  cruelly." It was during the war between Franco and England.  Ono day news came that the English  fleet was in the offing. Young Hob-  son ran down a back lane to the shore,  shoved off in the first rowboat he  found handy, pulled for the foremost  vessel, and then and there enlisted in  what proved to be the admiral's owi*  ship. Out at sea they sighted the enemy. The two fleets engaged in the  channel, and the admiral's ship was  locked yard-arm and yard-arm with the \'l  leading ship of the French fleet.   ,  While the fight raged the lad Hob-  son asked an able seaman, "What are  we, trying to do?" I  "Do you see the flag1 up there?".said  the sailor, pointing to the Frenchman's  masthead.  "Yes," said the boy.  "Well, wo want to get'that down,''  said the man.  Presently the English orew raised a"  mighty  shout  of' exultation,  and  the  French saw that their flag was gone.  Instantly'the order to board was obeyed/and after a (short    resistance the���������  French ship-surrendered.  "Who saw. the French colors shot  away?"  Nobody could answer till a Iittlo figure was seen sliding down the  shrouds with something wrapped' around his arm. - It was young Hobson.  Unobserved he had crossod the yards  from his own to tho enemy's mast-,;!  head, and in the: hdat of action had"  cut the Frenchman's flag from its halyards and  taken possession of it.

In il he says: ���������  .' "No stranger can form any idea of  ,���������!! 'vexations, formalities and regulations  f. 'so ruinous to private and public in-  | (tere&ts as, those which the Spanish of-  .'. '.ficials have invented and put in force  rf fin the Philippines. These gentlemen  ,.'

The notorious Gen.  >|\Veyler was Governor-General of the  % ^Philippines for three years and was a  .*$shining model of'well-regulated e.con-  r.'Somy.". His annual pay was ������40,000.  K (Out of ,this custom compelled him to  P- ^disburse large sums for his personal  j'-K expenses and to subscribe generously  |.-J (to various public works and charities.  h- * Notwithstanding all these demands  Iv ''��������� upon his purse this prudent General  l;> ^.contrived to economize and deposited  fj'/in bank, at London and Paris, an  i\ (.amount which his own compatriots es-  I'Htlmated at from 32,500,000, to ������3,000,-  J(J / 000. The conduct of his successor, Des-  !>��������� ((pajol, gives' a clue to the mystery of  (li Vthe General's economics. On the day  ]���������> 'of the arrival of this new Governor-  1?; ('General at Manila one of the richest  ' Chineso merohants of the city offered  I v \ him a present of  |V f   ' $10,000  AS    A. TRIBUTE  Vj'/'of respect and esteem and was struck  I"! J in the face for his pains.  "The officers composing the central  at Manila are many and  ?/Ywell paid. The islands are divided  ���������i '��������� into military, civil and mixed provin-  !:j \ cial Governments. Each is composed  of it Governor and, a numerous  f:.l ���������' staff, all paid, from the revenues of  tf. their Governorships. This system gives  ,i|', ample opportunity for fiscal malver-  i;5 sion and oppression which- fall upon  '^(the unhappy natives. "Under Spanish  * '��������� law every inhabitant of the colony -is  '[���������.compelled to carry a personal card  ]i' i .which answers the purpose of a pass-  '���������"J) port. No one con travel without one.  ������> Its cost varies from ?2.50 to $'25 and  ''.jit must1 be renewed annually. Those  111 who pay less than ������3 50 are compelled  /..jto givo their personal labor to the  'Government for fifteen days or pay an  additional tax of $7.50. As the daily  wages of workers ranges from 5 to 50  cents, the severity with which this  tax weighs upon the masses can be  imagined.  "Throughout all the islands the taxes are uniform "and innumerable.  !/ i 'Every native who keeps and fastens an  ' (animal for food is taxed; if he has a  'horse or some cocoanut trees he is  '���������)" taxed for each. If he wishes to make  ;{' cocoanut oil ho is again taxed for the  ;-' Mprhilego. There are taxes on weights  /'���������ijund measures, on stores and shops; a  'Y i tax on laud, on all kinds of manufac-  !jVJ lures and on alcoholic spirits. Native  \S tax collectors are made responsible for  f{{ ,the colletcion of the total taxes in  'if 'their disLricts. At Siquijor forty-four  of these native functionaries were  exiled to Bohol after thoir houses,  land and cattle had been' confiscated,  because they had not been able to  make good tho arrears due by their  fellow countrymen.  THIS IS THE PRICE  Biosd. Was  Poor  and Thin���������Hood's  3arBaparl;!:i Gave Strength.  ' "After being in the hospital for a  long timo I was very weak and hardly  able to walk. My blood was thin and I  was as pale as death. When I reached home I was told about Hood's Sarsaparilla, and procured five bottles and  began taking It. In a few months  after I began its uso I found 1 had  gained twenty pounds in weight, and  I felt so much better that I continued  the use of the medicine until I was as  well as ever. I believe Hood's Sarsaparilla saved my life." Arthur Mills,  Dresden, Ont.   Remember  Hood's Sai  Canada's Greatest Medloino.     "il; Riic for ?5.  It i.  p'\  j i i  V '  Jr;  '.which tho   natives or   the   Philippines  j pay for  their (ioverniiient on    'Christian principles.':    "  "And yet,  owing  to  tbe  marvellous  fertility of their   soil,    the   oppressed,  tortured, ruined islanders manage    to  iexist.    A primitive  system of cultivation  has produced, in one year,  eight  millions of dollars' worth of hemp, six  of sugar  and  four of  tobacco!      Gold,  i liron, copper and coal/are found on the  islands.   The     exactions     of   Spanish  functionaries and the vexations of the  fiscal  agents    so hamper    all  foreign  merchants and those who come to engage in business that they finally give  up  the  attempt to do    any profitable  {trading and  leave the country.  "Such was the state of the colony,  when as suddenly as a flash of lightning, the insurrection of 189G came. It  was the result of speeches made by  Spanish officers at an army reunion  and banquet, who then and thero proposed to 'exterminate the, savage natives in their lairs,' and' declared that  'they would give no quarter,' but  slaughter these rascals to the last  man.' At first the insurgents were'  checked by want of arms and supplies,  but the first detachment of Spanish  troops which opposed them were so few  and behaved in so cowardly a fashion  that they, were easily cut to pieces,  and the rebels secured several hundred rifles and thousands of cartridges.  "The memory of the Death Hole at  Manila will never be effacod whilo the  present generation of natives and  their children live. The Death Hole  'was a noisesome dungeon, built  in the foundations of the rampart, on  the River Pasig side of Manila, This  prison had been unused for more than  '100 years. It was half full of foul  !water, the home of rats, snakes arid  all kinds of vermin. One hundred  natives were shut in it.     During the  Hood'8 Pills curd Indlijest ion.   '2.1 cents.  night lhey were heard shrieking und  begging to bo knocked on the head or  taken out. The Spanish Lieutenant in  chjrgo, annoyed by their groans- and  complaints, stopped up the only opening by which fresh air could reach  them.  ALL WERE POUND DEAD  in the morning. Gen. Blanco, was  then Governor-General of the Philippines. When ho heard of this atrocity  he summoned the butcher Lieutenant  before liini, and, after upbraiding him  for his cruelty, kicked him downstairs!  The General knew that if he had  court-martialled this officer the latter  would have been acquitted.  "As shocking was the fate of Dr.  Rizal. This enthusiastic patriot was  an intelligent, learned mm, who had  been educated in Spain and France.  For writing a book against Spanish oppression he was exiled to tho island of  Dapitan. Thero he met a young woman of Irish parentage, with whom  ho fell in love. They were engaged to be married when, on some pretext, tho doctor was brought,back to  Manila, sent to Madrid to be tried, and  from Madrid sent back to Manila. The  uhnappy girl to whom he was betrothed tells the rest of the story:  " 'Every one knew that Dr. Rizal  was innocent. All- that could be  brought against him was the publication of his book, and the Spanish officials who tried him had never even  read it. Nevertheless, he was condemned to death. I then asked permission to be married to him, and  they granted my request, thinking to  add lo the horror of his martyrdom.  The marriage was celebrated by a  friar the same day on which he was  sentenced. I passed that whole night  on my knees in prayer before the prison door which shut my husband from  me. When morning dawned the doctor came ou t surrounded by soldiers,  his hands ''litud behind his back.  They took ���������>. m to the Luneta, the  fashionalils promenade of tho city,  where all military executions take  place. The Lh'ulenanl in command of  thc filing pirty asked my husband  wh'ire he would prefer to bo shot. He  replied. "Through the heart." "Impossible." said the Lieutenant. "Such a  f ivor is granted only lo men of rank,  you will be shot in tho back." A moment after my husband was dead. The  soldiers shouted  "HURRAH FOR SPAIN,"  and 1. "Hurrah for the ^Philippines  and death to Spain." f asked tor the  body. It was refused me. Then 1  sworo to avenge his death. I secured  a revolver and dagger and joined Lhe  rebels. Thoy gave me a Mauser rifle,  and  the Philippines will be  free."  "An execution al the Luneta was  considered in the light of a spectacle.  IL usually took place in the cool of the  early morning. , Hundreds of women  of the upper classes were present.  The spectators stood up in their carriages and drank champagne while  waiting for the uppointed hour. When  the officer in command of the firing  party loworod his sword and the shots  rang out the women waved their  handkerchiefs and funshades joyously.  The firing squads for these barbarous  executions were each made up of five  men placed about ten paces from the  condemned and were at first composed of native troops. "It was found;  however, that their sympathies were  with ihe insurgents: not wishing lo  inflict mortal wounds on their fellow  countrymen they-.nimed at the arms or  legs of the victims, thus adding to'the  horror of these scenes. On one occasion 'thirteen-men were led out to be  shot at the same time, all members of  a secret .revolutionary society called  the Catapanan. Not one of these unfortunates was killed at the first fire.  Most of them did hot' die until the  third or fourth round.' When all was  over a" military band played lively  airs. .'-." ��������� >  "After learning these facts no one  will be surprised at the manner in  which the natives have, welcomed the  success of the Americans. For centuries Spain has treated the natives of  these unfortunate islands with such  ferocity that she can never make  adequate atonement. The United  States may not annex Cuba, but she  will find ample compensation in taking possession of tho Philippines."  In Dr. Guimares's description of the  city of Manila one of its industries is  worth nothing.  "Ducks are very industrious in all  the islands, especially in thi*t of Luzon, where thousands of them are to  be seen disporting theimselves in the  river Pasig. The eggs of these ducks  are not. hatched by,female ducks, but  by Tagal Indians, many of the males  making it their sole occupation. The  eggs are placed in large nests of wood  ashes and the Tagals sit on them for  hours. The bankB of ��������� the river are  lined with these queer human incubators, who eat, drink, smoke and play  cards, but always hatch out their settings .successfully without breaking an  egg. During the last few years artificial incubators have been introduced  md are now rn-alling the picturesque  Indians in ?.'

PEEPS INTO THE FUTURE.  forecasts or .Voted Men mid What ISecame  of Thrill.  ��������� Just previous to the assassination of  'the Empress of Austria lho omperor  was heard repeatedly to remark, "I  fear something awful is about to transpire. I wish the jubilee year were safely over." This brings to mind other  insatnees of ' forecasts fulfilled, says  tho London Mail.  Just over thirty years ago a visitor  to Edinburgh was being shown over  the High Court of Justiciary. He  made some remark concerning lhe dock  and its duties, and in reply the official  jokingly said tho visitor might one  day be sentenced to be hanged in that  very room. The sightseer was the notorious Dr. Pritchard *, two years had  barely passed when in the dock he had  so closely inspected he was doomed to  death for poisoning his wife and mother-in-law.  To many watchors of the political  weathercock the rapid rise of Mr.  Asquith to renown as a statesman was  tittle short of miraculous; to the late  home secretary himself, however, il  was but the natural outcome of his  own resolve. When a youth at tho  city of London school he informed all  and sundry that ho meant to take high  honors at' Oxford, enter the house of  commons, and become an influenlial  member of the cabinet.  -The Earl of Rosebery, so it is historically recorded, whilo passing his boyish years at Eton, foretold thai in the  coming years he would win Lhe Derby, and more important still, be prime  minister. Both Lord Rosebery and  Mr. Asquith prophesied the things  whereof they knew.  A gentleman conceived the idea that  he would only live a certain time, so  he mado a nice calculation of his fortune, which he so apportioned as to  last just the same period us he guessed  his  life  would  extend   to.  Strangely enough his calculations  camo correct to the letter, for he died  punctually at the time ho had previously reckoned; he had so far exhausted his estate that, , after his  debts had been discharged, a solitary  pair of slippers represented the entire  property he left.  liis relatives buried him, and a representation of the slippers was carved  on the tomb ; to-day in a churchyard at  Amsterdam his grave may be seen, (he  only inscription on tho stone being two  1'lemmish words: "Effen nyt," i.e.,  "Exactly."  The lato George Moore came to London from Cumberland a poor, friendless boy. He entered a great commercial house, and from (ho beginning declared he would eventually marry his  employer's daughter and become his  employer's partner. He accomplished both ambitions, became very wealthy and a man of whom his generation might well be proud.  When Warren Hastings was a hid his  great grief was Unit his family had lost  their paternal estate at Daylesford,  and he was constanlly heard, to say:  "T will buy il back." He grew up lo  make both history and a famous name,,  and he died at  Daylesford.  Among the many records of Harrow  school is that of a boy, the son of a  poor local tradesman in a very small  way of business. His schoolfellows often taunted him about his family poverty ; their thoughtless jeers, although  hurting his feelings, drew from the  lad the retort: "I intend before I die  to ride in a coach  and  four."  The years slid by and lo and behold I  the poverty-stricken youngster of  Harrow had developed into Dr. Parr,  the greatest scholar of his time, whose  customary and favorite means of locomotion was a coach and four.  The seventh child of the Gorman  emperor and empress is a daughter,  their six being sons. The house of  Hohenzollern has a tradition that in  one year three emperors of that house  will reign in Germany the third will  have seven sons and will bring ruin to  the nation as well as the empire to an  end.  This direful prophecy has seen the  fulfillment of its first part; whether  the arrival of a seventh son will-bring  the calamities predicted the future will  show. ���������'"���������' '  .'.

The present Local government has  much to do for British Columbia, if it  would only set to work to do it. The  most casual observer must see that  the way assessments are made and  monies expended in unorganized districts is simply a farce. For instance,  the. other day a gentlemen told  the writer that he owned for  years some sixty odd1 lots in a  certain town and this.was the first  year he was taxed for any of them;  and those of them that were this year  taxed the highest were in a 'swamp  where it would be several years before  they were fit for occupancy. The same  thing, holds good the country over.  There are people in the country running commercial concerns who have  never paid a cent of taxes on personal  property the past two years, while  their, neighbors are paying annually.  This is all the result of the lack of  local machinery. In a sparsely settled  country like this, we cannot well have  our county councils, but we should  have some sort of territorial officers  who would look after the requirements  of those territories in roads, bridges,  etc., and see that, there was equitable  taxation. No one man, styled a government assessor, can stand in one  corner of a wide expanse of country  and make equitable assessments by  sitting down in his office only. It  would be much better to divide up the  country under officials elected by the  people as supervisors, who would be  charged with a reprosentation'of" tjie  district's wants as well as the collection of taxes for provincial revenues.  7 A; C.

It is a surprise to many how the  trainmen on the C. P. K. Kootenay  branch lines keep their temper as well  aa they do,and are so invariably attentive and courteous to the travelling  public as they are. Take the Nakusp  and Slocan branch, for instance. The  passenger portion is expected to make  time, to keep connections with the  boats, for main line service, and often  they have to handle ten or a dozen  freight cars with unlimited shunting  and switching, and all on a three to  five per cent, grade. Very, often the  engines seem almost wholly incapable  r>f doing the work for lack of power.  .ft i.*j not as bad at all seasoM, but now  there is an unusually large quantity  Y ore handling, and besides it is the  i'lisiest season of the,year with general  :' eight .and pa3sehg������jr "traffic.

This includes soft lead, hard lead and the  metal obtained by smelting foreign  base bullion and ores in bond. During  the first half pf ..'1898 there was ex-  porteti.33,439 tons of lead from foreign  base bullion refined in bond and 7,308  short tons of lead from foreign ore  smelted in bond. , Eeports from nearly  all the important producers show a  decline in stocks from 17,608 tons in  January 1 to 16,760 tons of July 1. The  estimate of consumption'for the first  half of 189S is 118,767 short tons. The  figures presented indicate an increased  production in the United States,  balanced fully by a notable growth in  the consumptiony which is at the rate  of 237,000 tons per annum.  The total production of lead in Canada from all sources during 1897 was  19,509 short tons, all of which was  shipped in a crude state to the United  States .���������Rossland' Min er.

Jt wns in tho  midst of these dreams and of sore disappointments and distress that Harris  heard of the first discoveries" of the  Slocan, and immediately he stampeded for the new country. lie secured a third interest in a prospect,  called the Reco, for ft few hundred  dollars, and the Reco was a bonanza  for Johnny Harris. It has made lum  the king of Sandon. He has a monopoly of the hikes, the lifiht and water  plants, the trade and even tho-roasin  of the city, and he wears his rewards  ind honors well.  And his (Jay dream is at last accomplished, for away back in old Virginia, in the midst of broad acres,  gardens, meadows, orchards and corn  stands a magnificent mansion, of  ' which J. M. Harris is tho lord and  master, and thus it has come to pass  that the wealth of British Columbia  2ia������ enabled Johnny Harris to achieve  his day dreams and to return to old  Virginia to live henceforth in baronial  spfendor and in luxurious ease.  The. Reco has two veins, and in one  of these is a band of galena that is fabulously rich. They mine ore that runs  as high as 810,000 to the ton. -But  they can only ship in winter, for the  ore must be raw-hided on thc snow.  The mine has paid about 9250,000 in  dividends, and it hus hardly been  touched as yet.  The   Slocan Star is  another  of the  Sandon mines tliat  has made fortunes   i  for its owners.

The Idaho, al&o principally owned by  an English company, is pitying big  dividends.

The Wonderful and  the Miller Crock mines I saw and am  satisfied that they will be big producers.  To sum up, I saw enough of new development in Sandon to convince thc  most skeptical that thc Sandon district  will produce wealth enough to enrich  an empire. It is making millionaires  of men who build palaces in Spokane,  in Salt Lake and in Butte; of men who  buy baronial grandeur on the banks of  the James river. It looks to me far  easier to achieve a fortune here than  In the Klondyke, for the richest so far  discovered and produced are but a  foretaste of the far vaster riches which  an course of time these mountains will  Lring forth.

The  errors are, perliaps,   not  serious   but  may be slightly misleading to the out-  eide public, and are due, no doubt,  to  picking up hia information off-hand.  In the first place the Reco can ship in  the summer season over the good trail  leading to the mine���������it did a year ago.  It don't generally ship in the summer  because the company is strong,  and  oan hold its summer output until raw-  hiding, which is less expensive  than  packing. ��������� What Mr. Harris  may do  with   his Virginia home later, we do  not know;  but we do know that he is  not yet residing in it, and not likely to  for some time  except for his usual  summer visits.

We are convinced also  that Mr. O'Farrell has got his names  and his figures mixed   when  he refers  to the Payne group, and the prices  at  which it has been   bought and sold.  He also overlooks the Last Chance and  Queen Bess   as   profitable   properties  around Sandon.   In saying "Here the  corn is never seen to grow,   the fruit  trees never bud, nor do the flowers ever  bloom," he is doing nature an   unintentional injustice���������hisvisit being late  In the.season���������for, perhaps, nowhere  in northern latitudes is she so lavish  with wild flowers, small fruits, etc., as  in   these mountain fastnesses, while  several of Sandon's citizens have their  pretty flower plots.

As    she    sieppea  through the door, she brnsauelj lilted  her  gold  eye-glass   and  willin w������P  round  the   saloon,   took  m   the_wbo  company,   deliberately,   from   lhe  cap  ta^?s end round    to  the  purser   and  from  the  purser  round    again  to the  captain's seat.   Thon she turned to her  companion, a young girl,, ^reafter to  be described, and beckoning to her lo  take the place to the left of the cap  tain, herself secured that at the post  of  honour  on  the right. . The  elderij  gentleman, who also carried and used  Sharply a"pair  of  gold  glasses   sealed  himself next to the yonnser lady, on  an imperative, nod from theolber. ^  have said that several seats were un  occupied.

By  a quick  im  patient movement *he ordered the gen  tleman  to  hand hor  the  cards wbiott  were in corresponding relation lo h.in  on the  othor side; and when she had  studied these, and returned them   she  ���������lied herself to her soup, One oaid  only remained uninspected It.was the  Eourlh on the captain's right. That one  apparently escaped her.  The card at her own right hand bore  the name of Mrs. Carpmael. the> next  one that of Mr. Carpmael. On   the op  posite side, near the elderly gentleman  were the names of Mr. and Mis. -Uo  Gowkie. ,, ���������    ,,.,.i  "Of   Toronto,"   lhe    gentleman    had  said, in answer    to    an  interrogatory  raising  of   the  lady's  eyebrows,  goods."

Mr. McGowkie nodded to the elderly  gentleman.neilher farnilarly nor rudely, but..with ascertain sedate assurance. He allowed .his wife to take her  seat next to' the' knight���������for the party  ait the head of the table was in fact  that of Sir Benjamin Peakman���������and  seeming not to notice the fact that  both' his wife and himself were being  mercilessly, ogled by. Lady Peakman,  McGowkie said:  - '..'.'���������"  'Sir  Benjamin  I   beg    to  introduce  .you  to  my'wife,  Mistress , McGowkie.  She's ower fresh as yet to matrimony,  and to sailing,  too;  but she'll get experience in time."  Sir Benjamin thereupon shook hands  ��������� li- tit_���������   Tv/r���������n������������������,���������i..-0   with the air of  cials such as you may find any voyage,  travelling from Liverpool lo Quebec or  Portland.  "Thtt swellish-looking old woman,  he added, "with the great pile o ribbons on her head, and the. gold lorney-  etts, is Lady Peak-nan. She's a strange  woman, she is. They call her in Quebec the leader of society.' No one  knows who sho is or where she comes  from, but folks tell some queer stories about her. Sir Benjamin Peakman  picked her up, they say, somewhere on  the continent, long ago, when he was  travelling there on business as simple  Mr. Peakman. He's her second husband, I believe. At least, so they say.  That girl's the only child lhey have,  and a mighty pretty one, too, only she  looks too stuck up. Coming aboard, l  saw her lift her dress, and she had on  fine silk stockings, 'all pink' colour,  like a bullet girl's."  "Humph!" said the young man, taking no notice whatever of the gnl to  whom his attention had been directed.  "You see sharply, you might be a haberdasher, sir," looking keenly at his  tormentor. Then, with great nonchalance, ho proceeded to discuss the  stowed kidneys, which had now reached  the table. ,   ,  The red-faced man grew redder lot  an instant, for lhe. youth had hit him,  by some extraordinary chance squarely and accurately. Ho was Mr. twopenny, hosier and haberdasher, of \\ est  Nolre-Darae street, Montreal. He relapsed for awhile upon his food ana  wailed for another opporl unify. Af|pr  a hasty struggle with a large plalo oi  kidneys and potatoes, he glanced up  the table again. ���������'������������������     .   ;' .��������� ���������  "La! there's the Carpmaels come in  he said.

That's his wife, with Ue  thin nose and nut-cracker face. 1 hoy  say she's distantly connected with the  nobility. I believe i-he was over with  Lady BJogden, when Sir Antony was  governor."  The young man having finished his  entree, and no doubt feeling called on  lo say something in acknowledgment  of the, garrulity of his vis-a-vis, said,  with a studied drawl, "Ah, you appear  to  know everybody  on  board."  "Well, I do know a good lot," replied the olher, with unconcealed pride,  "bui noi all of 'om. Now," he said,  leaning his arm on the table,_ and  stretching forward confidentially,  "(here's an elderly man I saw go into  the captain's cabin upstairs. I guess  he has tuken il for I lie voyage.

And the knight's eye wandered a moment across"to his lady, who was now  looking at him through her glasses.  She seemed amused. Pretty Mrs. McGowkie blushed finely, and then., askr.  ed for soup;, and then, suddenly seeing that Iher fish was on the table,  ��������� -������ ���������*��������� ^nVn on\r ������nnrt; and  pour-  niin-  ui-ua. .������...������ ������...     throb  bing, throbbing, Tike a mill-wheel.  Nothing of all this, except the words,  had escaped the eyes of the red-faced  man at the foot of the table, who had  in truth been staring with all his  might, Neither had the, young gentleman been entirely blind, though he  took hia observations with an indolent,  ease and affection of indifference peculiar to him. Ilec asked no questions.  "Do you' know'who that old boy is?"  said thei red-faced man, a little nettled  by the. young man's indifference.  "I do not," replied the-cither, bending over:, his turbot.  "It's Sir Benjamin Peakman, one' of  the new knights, they've made to the  Order of St. Michael and St. George.7  He's a wealthy old fellow from Quebec���������was prime minister there four  years ago; and,, for all his' airs, was  once aploughboy."  "Really 1 I think the better of him,  then," replied the young gentleman,  slowly sticking a glass in his eye, and  for a moment or two glancing at the  knight.  The red-faced man was encouraged.  It was his nature to bait his company.  He hf.ted men who were impenetrable,  and by fair means or foul, by cunning  or sheer rudeness, he was wont to  force his way over any guard, however  practised, strong, or skillful. He was  one of. a dozen thick-akinned commer-  minister. His quiet answers  ed the young man, and the most determined effort of the rougher traveller opposite failed'to'break up the conversation, which was carried on in a  tone that scarcely allowed a word to  reach him. So the red-faced man turned to his neighbor, who happened to  be the little governess.

SUGGESTIONS  TO  HOUSEKEEPERS.  Mrs. Rorer advises against using  butter for frying fish.' Butter, she  'says, boils at a low t emperat ure, consequently burns quickly. The butyric  acid softens the fiber of the fish and  causes it to become soft as soon as  taken from' (hs pan. Sho prefers oil  ���������olive oil���������a perfectly pure and wholesome vegetable oil, Next lo it is a mixture of lard and drippings, which she  I says is better than lard alone. And Mrs.  Rorer knows.  Why docs bread dough "fall" when  allowed to stand loo long? Because the  yeast plant has consumed the nourishment of tho flour. Ib can no longer grow, thereforo decay sets in. lhis  produces what we call the souring of  the dough, a sure sequence of tailing." Soda may be used to neutralize  the acidity, but it will not restore the  sweetness of the flour and the bread  is neither as palatable or as nutritious  When a recipe calls for a teaspoonful  of baking powder it means a rouna-  ed spoonful, not a heaped nor a level  one. 'Tho baking powder may be sifted wilh the flour, or beaten in before  adding the whites of the eggs, in making cake. .,    ,, ._.

DOMESTIC RECIPES.  Creamed Oysters.���������Put fifty oysters  In a'colander and wash by turning cold  water over them. -Transfer them  to a saucepan and stir them gently  .till they reach tho boiling point; then  drain again, saving the liquor. Measure and add to the liquid thus obtained  enough milk to make a pint.

Mrs. Clover gathered up her work  arid ran away, and her husband, after shaking his jolly sides with silent  laughter, gradually recovered himself  and proceeded to,satisfy the 'curiosity  he had aroused,  thus:  "I was a poor boy, as perhaps ye  know, with nothin' but a pair of stout  arms an' broad shoulders to push my  way in tho world with.  "The summer I was twenty-one ]  went to work for Sue's father. Mi-  Bean was a well-to-do" farmer, and  Sue his only child. lie wasn't anyways stuckcu'p about his property, but  he set a great store by Suo, an' as he  know that somo day she'd havo as  good a farm as there was in the coun  try, nat'rally expected lhat tho man  who got her would be able to give as  much its he . took. '<>���������'.:'*������������������ .i  ''iSo I had nd more idea of ever bein  Sue's husband than I had of flyin',  an' yit the fust7 time I set eyes on  he/r I know, as well as I know now  that no other woman would ever be  to me what she was.  "They were real nice sort of folks,  who treated thoir help like their own  family, an' I soon began to feel at  home.  "All but with Sue; I couldn't seem  to say two or three words ' to her  without blunderin', an' was always  doin! some awkward thing or,other  when I went nigh her.  "I don't think I'd have felt quite  so shy if I'd have known her opinion  of me, for I wasn't a bad-lookin'chap  in my young days.  "I hadn't been to Mr. Bean's long  afore I found out that Sue had a  beau.< His name was .Silas Peterkin,  son of the storekeeper down at the  village.  "He was a white-faced, siim-waistcd  feller, with little hands an', feet, that  I'd been ashamed to own, but which  he seemed to feel'inighty proud of.  "Sue never seemed to act as though  sho had any partic'Iar likln' for Silas,  but 'twas easy seen that the old folks  set great store by him, an'wasmighly  pleasant at the idea of his stoppin' up  to their darter.  "So matters.went on until September,- when i Mr. Bean give ��������� a huskin'  party. We young fellers set-to work  with a will, an' afore sunset the corn  was all husked, an', piled away, an'  the barn floor swept clean for. the  dance an' supper he was7 to have in  the evenin  number of day's past, but this had  been the hottest one of all. There was  a strange look to the sky, too; it  was streaked overhead with purple  an' vi'let, with a sort of yellow glare  in the west.  "When I went to fodder the. cattle  I found the poor critters huddled together, in one corner of the yard, ,ut-  terin' low'bellows of terror and dismay; their instincts warning them, as  all these signs did me, of the tornado  that -was  approachin'.  "Goin' back to the house, I shut every door an':winder.  "Then thinkih', of the folks in the  barn, I rah down through-the garden toward the medder where . it  stood.  "But I had .hardly; gone two yards  before it. came���������liflin' mo off my feet  an' liurlin' mo against an opposite  fence I  "I picked mysolf up an', hurried on.  As I como in sight of (he barn���������or,  ruther whore it once stood���������the air  was filled .with dust an'" flyin' shingles an' .timber.  "As soon as it cleared away a bit, 1  saw- Sue standin' in a most perilous  position right in the midst of it I I  shouted to her to'come away, and just  then the' wind took her up, as if sho  was but a feather, bearin' her directly toward me. I opened my arms, an'  she came right into them.  "As she did so, one of tho flyin'  sticks hit one. of my arms, makin' it  useless, but holdtn' her tight wilh the  other, I took her to some low bushes  in the little hollow between' two  hills.  "Sue escaped without a scratch. My  arm was broken, but, considering who  nursed tne, you needn't waste any  pity' on me for that!"  ,    SHIP'S CREW SEE FOUR SUNS.  .Iliigiilllcriif Spectacular Exhibition Wildi  Old Sol Indulged In-  One ofthe rare sights of the world  was vouchsafed to the British steamer Venus on its recent voyage from  Balavia, Java, to Philadelphia. The  vessel arrived iu port on Sunday last,  and the captain gave a thrilling account of tho weird phenomena of the  sun dog, witnessed whilo in latitude  10 degrees south and longitude 29 degrees west of Greenwich, or, in everyday parlance, about ninety-one miles  from the Sequostrios islands.  Everything was going as usual  aboard ship, when, shorily after 5  o'clock, on August 15, when the de-  cliningYsun had yet about two hours  in which to reach the horizon, Capt.  McGregor noticed thai orb descending brilliantly in the east. Thinking  that the' vessel had turned about on  hor course, he. hurried to the wheel  lo ascertain the cause ot the orders  being changed which ho had previously  given to tho steersman. The Venus  lay, however, directly to tho course.  Capt. McGregor doubted the evidence  of his senses, and, hurrying aft along  (he port side, he was astonished lo,behold another sun of equal brilliancy  beaming serenely in the West. In  the meantime the curious sight had attracted' the attention of the crow, and,  filled . with alarm, they gathered  around the officers fearing they knew  not what.  While all was confusion among the  crew, to add to their terror, a third  sun, fiercely blazing and. crimson red,  shone ominously in the north, whilo  a moment or7so later one of like intensity appeared astern tinging with  weird light tho wako of foam lift by  tlie receding steamer. The marvelous  spectacle' will, live forever in the memory of tho favored few who witnessed  it.  During the continuance of'.the refraction the captain made several  memoranda of its curiously changing  phases. All the suns appeared to glow  with the same brightness which characterized . tho bona fide body; but it  was with an unholy light, a counterpart of the real, which made it a mailer of no difficulty to piclj, out the  genuine. ��������� Another feature of the  mock- suns was their illy-defined rim  or circumference, which although  plainly to be traced against the evening sky; seemed to ,blond into tho  strange luminosity which permeated  (he atmosphere. Following tho real  sun, they slowly sank and exhibited all  his varying colors until gloom settled  over the sea and all was over.  Although the sight is a very rare  one, it has been fully described by  scientists who have witnessed it. Prof.  Van  Huten, of  tho    Astronomical  so  ciety of Vienna, saw a "sun dog" of  "Pretty soon, the '.women folks <be- equal magnitude while off tho Friend-  gan to flock in. but Sue was the pret-[ ly islands during his extensive trip  tiest of tho hull lot, dressed in her I around the world in the interest .of  white frock, with the pink ribbon tied I science, and has written a pamphlet in  around her waist. ; explanation   of. its  origin.      The   phe-  "Silos Peterkin, he was there, of  course, an' as soon: as I saw him I  went to the houso.  As I was standin' on the back  steps, out of sorts with myself an'  everybody else, I heard a voice say:  "'David!'  "An' turnin' round I saw Sue,  lookin' as stnilin' as a basket of chips,  "'Ain't ''you comin' down to the  barn?' says sho.  " 'I rather guess I ' ain't wanted,'  says I.  "'Oh. yes, you are,' says she; 'I  want you.'  "She looked an'.spoke so sweet that  I was enamost a mind to go. But just  then I heard Silas callin' her, an'  mutterin' somethin' about havin'  some tools to grind, I walked off.  "I was most sorry for't, though,  when I caught a sight of her face as  she walked away with Silas, an' saw  how sober it was.  "Sittin' down on the back steps. I  went to work, tho raspin' of my file  soundin' a deal pleasanter to my ears  than the 'fiddlin' that floated up  from tho barn down in the medder.  "It had been  uncommonly hot for a  expi  nornena witnessed by Prof. Van Hutten  was on equal lines with the. one which  showed itself to lho Venus, with lhe  exception that it occurred shortly after noon, when all tho suns were group-  e.d together near the zenith. '  THE TROUBLES OS1 INDIA.  Her Financial Condition ��������� EelnWIn Kuslneni  ���������Discontent. Spreading.  According to letters from India, the  appointment of Lord Ksdleslon, formerly known as Mr. Curzon, to succeed  Lord Elgin, in the Vice-Royalty, has  been received with anything but satisfaction, b'viug to the new press law  (he newspapers, more particularly the  native newspapers, abstain from any  very strong expression of opinion,but  it may be said that- the nomination ot  so pronounced an exponent of lho forward policy is the cause of serious misgivings,  if  not  genuine alarm.  The financial condition of India  grows no bettor, and the unsettled cur-r  rency question retards business. An-  aclive policy such as is foreshadowed by  the announcement Dial the guarding  the Khyber Pass will bo assumed by the  Indian 'Government; and that stringent measures will be. taken to complete the disarmament of the tribesmen in the surrounding counlry.would  further disorder lhe finances already  suffering through plague, famine and  increasing impoverishment of the people.  In some parts of the country, the  peasants evicted from thoir ��������� lands  through inability to meet the increased    rents aro forming  BANDS OF DACOITS.  In one districL of lhe Bombay Presidency, Nassik, the dacoits have committed serious outrages on the. Marwans.  the Rajput money lenders, to whom  they were indebted for the means to  meet the land rent tax. One ol Lie.  dacoit leaders who was captured by tlie  Nassik police, in a voluntary confession  made in prison, declared that ho nau  taken to robbery being no longer able  to make a living on the land and pay  the Government taxes and the. oxluu-  bitant interest on the money he had  to borrow. The subject was brought  up in lhe Bombay Provincial Council,  and one of lho members staled in it  of his own knowledge, at least 7J pi i  cent, of the peasantry were hopeless y  in debt, and indicated thai it was only  a matter of perhaps a short time l.efon  they would abandon Iheir lands and  take to highway robbery for a lvmt,.  ft is believed that lo add to lhe a 1 react>  heavy expenditure as com pared wnu  revenue by launching out into a policy of military adventure bcjvnd i nc,  frontier, which is what it is bonded Lord Kedlestoue's , advent in India would mean, will bo to bring an  absolute bankruptcy in India, or torce-  the British Government to bear all uk  expense of any operations undertaken.
