A change of government came and the office was found  vacant. "It devolved upon Mr. Green  to name a man for 'the position, Mr.  Thompson desired the position and so  did Mr. Mclnnes. It has been represented to Mr. Green that Mr. Thompson,,, though a worthy and capable  young man, against whom no one has  a word to say, voted and worked  against him, while Mr. Mclnnes voted  and worked for him. As a consequene  Mr. Green filled the vacancy by, a  friend instead of an opponent. ,"������������������  ; The question for Mr: Kerr to answer  is, would he have done different had  he been in Mr. Green's shoes?-  Now; as Mr. Thornps'ori was never  appointed recorder he was never dismissed,- and, as he was never dismissed,  Mr. Kerr's resolutions fall liko;a house  of cards. Ifat was the'usage of governments and, members to disregard'  the force of fi-iendlyscrvices in elections and to appoint opponents as  readily as friends,to office, there would  be force.in Mr. Kerr's resolutions, but  there is none otherwise.

This . means a.  saving of ������5 per,ton . over, packing it  down... The,<mine is looking. splendid.  Bntweeu.-Nos. 4 arid 6 levels there is' a  block of available' stopirig ground 225  feet' ny-length-, and fully 90 feet in  depth. Thc.orq here, which is extremely rich, runs .from' G to 8 inches  up to! a foot and a half in width.  Above the No. 2 level there is another  fine showing, that extends to the stir;  face.- The ore above No. 2; is possibly  richer, containing both ruby and anti-  monial silver, ���������-''���������-.his small lead is! the  Reco.-Go'odenongh load.

As soon'as-shipping is commenced tho  force of men in the-mine, now nuni-  bering-20, will probably be.largely increased."   !.    ' "'"���������"'     '   . '  When asked "if the mine,.will pay  another of its ������100,000 'dividends the  coming spring, he replied :,"That is  something,-of course, upon which 1  am, no authority.. Judging fronv'whaler-  there is in eight, and if the manage-"'  rr.cnt'so desire, I feel certain that the  mine is capable of paying such a dividend in the spring. In short it is the  richest mine in the Slocan, and for  every three pounds of ore shipped  from the other silver-lead mines in  that camp, the Recoonly needs to ship  one from its rich voin to equal both in  value.  - "Sandon will this winter be as lively  as ever, and while little is being said  of its big mines, it is nevertheless true,  they are paying .more,! dividends and  bigger-ones than in any other camp in  the Kootenays," he concluded.  the   occupants   were   waving    palm  branches   and  giving, other signs   of  peaceful   intent.      The    anchor   was  dropped inside and the sails lowered.  .Five or six 'native boats came alongside and in a few 'moments the Bismarck men and the white mates  were  making friendly sighs to the Solomon  people.   Before the vessel's crew could  make amove to go below for goods  and weapons, the islanders drew knives  from  under their belts  and  attacked  the   crew^lurious'ly.     Capt. Kohlson  was   overcome    and   his   body     run  through  -and. through'   with    spears.  The corpse was thrown over the side of  schooner.   All'but-three of the crew  were killed.     The   attacking natives  ���������'then started.ashoie  with their prison  ers,   taking  with them' the bodies of  the deacP Bismiirck-nicn.'   The prisoners, were thrown into ajcahoe, - landed  on  the beach and left on - the sands,  while, the -Solomo'nites     prepared   a  ���������meal of, the bodies of their comrades.  'When' the gruesome, feast" was being  made a number of warriors   ran  the  schooner ashore and succeeded in find-  ing'in  her cabin  a keg of liquor, and  in less;than an, hour the whole party  was stupidly drunk.   .Two'.of the pris-!  oners -managed', to escape-,., took a boat  and -put  out to sea.     After floating  helplessly" about   for two days, they  were picked up by a trader and afterwards transferred to thesteamer-Nores  by,  and taken to Queensland,   where  they related their aUventures.

Extra Local Items.  1  Chairman Babcock. of the Republican Congressional committee,said'Ve  have received confirmatory information from every district,in the United  States, which shows that'the Republicans will certainly have thirteen  majority, and perhaps more than that  over the combined opposition in the  next house of representatives. Any  changes which subsequent "' returns  may may! make will be in tho direction of increasing our majority.

"One of our biggest mines advertised  a short time ago for tenders for'packing ore. This ore, of which they have  plenty, nets the company ������2,0lil) a ear,  yet instead 'of. advertising in their  loea'l -paper, which would cost perhaps  a dollar and be.read by hundreds, they  ��������� posted .up a few hand-writt'OM notices.  This is what encourages us .logo and  draw the investor.s attention to the  camp, to urge for needed improvements to; wagon roads, etc., in fact, to  do what we eim for everybody.''  The Silvertonian ��������� hits the nail  squarely on the head in the foregoing.  The local paper is continually drawing  the attention of the authorities to  every, requirement- of tlie locnlity in  wh'ch it is published,' thereby improving the chances of every property  holder to make more money out of  their holdings, and the only money  the paper makes ont of its labors, is  the.few dollars it getsjf'orsubscriptions  from operatives of the mines and local  advertisements occasionally. The  local papers of this Country arc not  patronized by the mine owners, generally speaking, as they should be.  Ed. Weeks, ii miner; who had been  foreman of the Silver Belle'mine at  McGuigan, committed suicide at that  place Thursday morning early by. cutting ,,his throat with a razor. The  Silver Belle closed down about three  weeks ago, and deceased had some  8450 with him.,- He went to Whitewater, and 'had a long spree, spending  the most ot his money. He then went  to- McGuigan to recuperate, and in  despondency committed tlie rash act.  ���������Mr. Gintzberger took the body to New  Dcnver,where an inquest will be held  to-day. No one knows -whence lie  came, or where his ' relatives reside.  ���������Ho'is'supposed to have considerable  money in the bank.  ���������.NATIVES   EAT SAILORS.

San Francis-co, Cal., Nov. ]-!-.���������Ban'k-  "ing upon the supposed peaceful intentions of tho Solomon Islanders.. Capt.  Kohlson, a- German trader and owner of  a cutter called 'the Sea Ghost, started  from Queensland, in the early part of  September for th? .Island of Buka, of  .the German Solomon group,wii'h-, the  intention of securing a cargo. The  telegraph despatches stated in brief a  few weeks ago that the Sea Ghost crew-  had been killed by natives. The mail  from Sydney now brings the following  details: ���������  Capt. Kohlson had been warned that  the natives were not as friendly as  they had professed. He sailed from  Bismarck,Archipelago, with two white  mates and a crew of seven natives.  The Sea Ghost arrived at Buka in the  night and lay off until morning.

Author of "Little Hodge,"  Sir Benjamin had 'been, rnoio ihun  lucky in finding a wife, every way as  clover and as ambitious as himself.  She was devoted tu tho .joint interest,  and promoted it byeveiy me ins in li-'r  power. Nothing was loo low or ton  high' for her (to. attempt. She resolved  that, tbey should lie asked to tlie  Prince's, parties at Chiswick, and they ;  .wore asked. In her Canadian homo  Ehe had been .known to spend licr  mornings in whipping cream and preparing compotes with her own-hands  . for an evening ball-supper to tie  Govornor^General. It had always hear  li. mystery who-she was and where site  had oomo from. It was known that  , Mr. Peakrnan had first met her at  Baden: It was said she had been  known as Countess Stracchino, and of  course'that her first husband was deaii.  It was a favourite joke with the officers of the garrison at Quebec to say.  that she wus "the real cheese." Whatever might have been her early history,  ' her later days,were in.every way exemplary. She'������������������'���������''bore children to Mr.  Peakman. She aided him in all his efforts.. She led society in the ancient  city of Quebec over the heads of ladies  who were great-grand-daughters of  earls and 'third cousins of the wives'  of marquises. Every attempt to oust  her had failed. She' patronised the  Anglican Church of the colony, njid  was, in tha estimation of the Bishop,  its iroal defender of the faith. She was  omnipotent. Suocess always stirs up  ��������� hatred. She was widely and thoroughly, hated. There was a good deal, in  her that laid Iter open to attack.. Her  manners jwere a trifle vulgar, 'her pro-,  nunciation and grammar were not  unexceptionable. Her face and -figure  weref neither handsome nor elegant.  But nothing could stand against the  combination of a millionaire yvitbv a  conciliatory manner and the spouse of  a millionaire with the ambition to  rule. .."'.'!.  This lady had been the mother pf  several children, as we have already  said but of these only one survived infancy���������the daughter, "Miss Arminta.

Their,  maids occupied the next room, with) a.  narrow gangway between. Sir Benjamin' preferred tho inner line of-cabins;  on the other side of. the passage a-nd  had one to himself somehow, numbers  down towards the middle of the shdp.  It ,was in the afternoon of the second  day out. Neither the knight nor liis  ladies-hid thought it. discreet to attempt to', leave their cabins. . ILt������dy  Peakman in the lower.berth, and Ara-  minta in the upper, lay panting c*iicl  screaming and dozing and tromblirug,  in turns, all through the dismal;hours,  as the great vessel for its part rolled  pitched, vibrated, shrieked and groaned like a vast tormented Cyclops.  "Oh I   Oh I   shrieked  Lady   Peakman.  "Maria,  Maria !     The��������� There 1     Go  this instant and .tell Sir Benjamin Tea  flying. Tell him to come to mc irntne-  diately., I have something to'say to  him before I go.'"

The gale, :which had been blowing  with increasing strength from nor'-'  nor'-west. while the great; swell of the  Atlantis'-waves came sweeping up from  a point or two south to ... west,! 'had  already created in the cross purposes  of these mighty force's a ' sufficiently  troublesome , state of; circumstances  even for a huge steam Triton, three,  hundred and' sixty, feet long: The  wind was charged with icy wet, which  was disseminated not so much in spouts  off rain as in a ceaseless drizzly scour,  which sought out'and penetrated every  crevice in anything human _ or inanimate that was exposed to its action.  The look-outs oh the fore-deck,* the  captain and the; mate, who, clad in  india-rubber from head to' foot, anxiously moved about, on the .,reeking  bridge', peered over the dripping man-  sails, were served for a poor protection? from the terrific blast against  "which the ship was driven with all the  power of the enginery below.  "What does-Bhe say, Dick?" shouts  'tho. captain in the.mate's ear; for, in  the horrible rout and roar, voice is  blown away into eternal space before  it can pass an inch from a man's  mouth.

"We're near the worst  of  it.". ���������,- ��������� '  The  instant he speaks; ��������� high up    to  heaven, right in front of them, heaves  the bow of the great .vessel.,   The two  men,' holding on to the stanchions, of  (he bridge'like grim death, and knowing that something is coming, cast an  eye through the drift up the long incline   of  deck before  them,  up to  the  farthest   end,  where    for   a    moment  they catch a glirnpse of two men, like  themselves, hanging on there, with desperate    vigour    to   lee    and weather  braces.     Then    there   iff a    moment's  poise;   the whole  of  the  mighty  hulk  of   the  steamer  seems  to bo balanced  somewhere  about   the   middle  of    the  keel,  on the top of a shivering mountain;  then there is a sudden twist of  |-th'o   mountain    beneath     theni,  as    it  throws  the  vossel  contemptuously  off  its   shoulder   sidewise   with  an  angry  shudder I Down   a terrific yawning pit  into a -sea-green hell rushes the great  ship, rolling, as she runs, over on her  lee 'beam,   till  the  boiling waves, hiss  up  the  scuppers and  into  the waterways^ and  now'suddenly    recovering  herself  with a mighty  trembling  and  straining,   in  the  midst  of which  the  huge flukes of the screw are released  from   the  water,   and  fly  round With  a   roaring   noise   and  a prodigious  vibration that can be heard and felt* by-  every  soul  on board,  she slowly rolls  back again on the-weather beam; and  then, with a mighty roar, a huge green  curl  of seething waters, raise afright-  ful   crest   for   twenty   feet   above   the  bulwarks   on   the   weather    bow,   and  looking and moving like a thing of life,  menacing  with  annihilation    the  two  awestruok  men  beneath,  dashes  some  thirty  tons of Water over on  the upper deck.   See, where it sweeps along,  hissing,   boiling, ; prancing,    swirling;  four feet deep from bow to' stern, and  then finding no ready outlet, thrashes  away  some ten or fifteen feet of bulwark,  and pours back in a torrent to  the sea from whence it had leaped. The  noble vessel, shaking herself free from  the    tormenting    wave,    riseB    again  proudly to her work, and bids defiance  once   more   to . the    giant  powers    of  storm and  sea.  This was what the two officers saw,  and they breathed more freely when  out. of the neelhing waters tho two  look-outs emerged, still hanging on  manfully, and shaking the water out.  of their eyes and hats, as half frightened and half laughing they tried to  look at each other across the deck, nnd  to shout congratulations which could  not   be  heard.  But in hurtling along the space of  deck confined by tho bulwarks, the water, foiled in.its deadlier purpose, resolved to make malicious use of its  assumed right of way. As it rushed  round the stern deck-houses, gathering momentum from the upward incline of the triumphant bow and tho  starboard roll of the vessel, a mass of  water was thrown with great force  against the closed door or the little  gangway at the top of the companion on the starboard side, arid of the  door next to it, which was1 that of the  purser's cabin. The impact of a ton or  two of fluid was too much' for the  strong brass fastenings of these defences, and in an instant bursting  them in, the- uproarious water rushed  on, and tumbling down the stairs in a  green cascade, seethed and gambolled  tumultuously along the passages, overtopping the .combings of the nearer  cabins,   and   flooding   the   floors  with  water, that with every motion ot tho  vessel washed to and fio in and out  of the surrounding cabins.

'  " Let mo go, miss, if you. please, for  heaven's sake! She's coming, she's coining'"  Shrieks were heard from the upper  deck, an^l suddenly through the open  .'door there rushed into the, gangway a  ^middle-aged female, with a turban of  .flannel on-her head and a red petticoat of the same material put. on over  her long robe,, which, clinging in wot,  folds to her knees and legs, very oddly impeded her freehoss of motion.v  -"Tis she ! 'Tis she 1" shouted the man;  and breaking free from Araminta, he  ���������bolted down the companion and into  the first cabin that appeared, locking  the. door behind him, and jumping  without ceremony/into the-lower.berth,  which was unoccupied. It was the cabin of Xady Pcakman's maids, one of  whom, Miss Ringdove, still lay in mortal-; terror and sickness in. the upper  berth. No sooner did she witness this  bold,intrusion, than she added her part  to the universal chorus. But pe������Plo  outside were far too alarmed on their  o'#V.^account���������thinking that they were  alL going straightway to the bottom  ���������to be stirred by Miss Ringdove's exclamations.  . "My dear young lady," said the gentleman from below, sticking out his  night-capped .head, and shouting as  loud as he could, in a vain efforr to  rise- superior to the horrible racket,  "pray, pray bo quiet 1 I'll do you no  harm whatever.",  , "O dear, O dear I 0-p-o-o-o-o!'   shrieked Ringdove.  "I'm'  in  earnest!      On   my  honor  I  won't hurt you I" On my honor I won t  hurt you!" roared the mini.  , "O-o-o-o-o-o!"  screamed  the   maid.  The man jumped out of- the berth in  desperation and the woman went, off  ma fit. '  Miss Araminta, thus rudely cast  off, had caught hold of the brass balustrade at her side to keep herself from  being  thrown  down  the  stairs.  At this moment a gentleman ran up  from below, envaloped in an ulster.  Notwithstanding his excitement, which  was. however not that abject terror  from the outbreak of which he was escaping, 'he could not help appreciating  in, an instant, in all its absurdity, the  scene before him. Poor little Araminta, pale as a sheet, and with utterly inefficient scarlet jacket and white  fluttering muslin, as she clung'to the  side of the companion,-was gazing awestruck at the apparition of the lady  above her, dressed as we have descrtb-i  ed, who no sooner saw the. gentleman  than she whipped out of the gangway  and into the storm again.  Hardly able to suppress his laughter,  the new-comer addressed the trembling damsel. ���������. ���������' ��������� ��������� ��������� '  "Pray, miss, don't be frightened.  There can be nothing the matter. A  little water.has burst in ; but, don t  you see, we should all have been at  the bottom long ago if anything really  serious had occurred. Take my arm.  Here, put on my coat;",and throwing  off his' ulster, the youth, who was  dressed, wrapped it around shivering  little Araminta, and buttoned her in  safely, and then asked, where she  would be taken to.      -  "Oh, to Captain Windlass, to the  captain's cabin, please. I'm so frightened!"       .  The young man made no reply, rie  did as he was told, carrying the young  lady in his warm ulster up.to the deck  and into the cabin of which we have  spoken, the door, of which was open.  There wus a foot of water.within, the  combing retaining it, but he spla.-hed  through this and laid her on the sola.  "Where is Captain Windlass?' : said  little Araminta. "Oh, please find  him, sir; ask him to get me a place in  his boat."  Tlie young man saw that she was  wandering,', and with great delicacy he  said, "Do believe me, that there is no  danger. May I go and fetch your  father?"     "'''..'  "Yes, do, please. Six Benjamin  Peakman,. No. 35.

The reader  must, remember that all this tune the  Bteamer had been pitching and rolling as madly as ever. Tho. water  downstairs was running out of lie  passage and into the water-ways at tho  gangway on either side ot the main-  hatch. The excited passengers had  been calmed down by the stewards,  and were returning to their berths.

Apothecary Sick of Bergkirchen in  Westphalia .entertained the Kaiser  against his will at. the time of- the  army manoeuvres In September. The  apothecary owns a house in tho outskirts with a piazza running along (he  first story., He had been obliged to  quarter a number of officers and.men  during their stay in the town,, and  had turned over to them every spare  room and bed. He kept the room opening on the. piazza for himself, and his  wife, and one night went to bed leaving the house door on the latch for  the convenience of his guests. ��������� At 4  o'clock in: the morning Kaiser Wil-  helm, with his staff, entered.the town.  The Kaiser noticed the piazza arid  thought it a good place from which to  observe the country. An. officer was  sent ahead to clear the w-ay, the Kaiser,  following immediately !behind. The  officer, who was the Grand Duke of  Mecklenburg! came to the door of He it  Siok's bedroom, knocked, and, getting  no answer,, pushed it open, and walked  into the room, where he found the worthy npolhecary in bed with Fr.au Sieb.  Tho clatter of his sword woke up the  apothecary, who was naturally indignant and cried out.. "This-is too  much.. Are you crazy?" ' ���������'   ���������  "Excuse me," answered the Duke. T  knocked, but no one answered, ��������� May  we not. go out.on your balcony? At  any rate, here is his Majesty already  coming  up  the  stairs."  "Woman, get out," cried the apothecary, jumping for his clothes, while  Frau Siek rolled out of bed into a  closet just In time. Tho Kaiser entered before Herr Siek had fully covered  his nakedness,  nodded, .arid said:'..  "C'esl la guerre, doctor; don't be angry. That "was a friendly greeting you  gave the Duke Regent, of Mecklenburg.  I didn't  know   that  he was crazy."  He then passed on to the piazza, followed   by  his whole staff,  and  stayed  "(.hero for an hour. , On leaving the Emperor said to Herr Siek, who tried   to  excuse himself:  "Your good wifo. is probably very  much frightened. 1 hope in some way  to show you my thanks."

I  CHILBLAINS.  .These painful and annoying disfigurements como from various causes���������  sometimes from a weak constitution,  sometimes from lack of proper nourishment.  Children are more subject to chilblains than grown people, but frequently outgrow the tendency. Occasionally, however, the complaint attacks   people  after  they  aro grown.  To prevent them, ono should begin a  long timo before winter appears, to  take precautionary measures. As soon  as tho dayB begin to bo chilly.youmust  nevor go out of doors without gloves,  '��������� and at once make a change into warmer   underclothing.    -  Be sure that the sleoves ot your dresses aro made long enough to cover tho  wrists, and (hat you are warmly dressed, underneath. Wear stout: shoes with  gaitors and take plenty of exercise.  As the cold weathor comes on, put on  all-wool clothing, and. carry a muff;  indoors wear warmly lined slippers;  and have night socks. Never sit over  a fire or warm your hnridrf and feet at  if ; if they uro cold, wash in hot? water,  or rub fill the blood circulates. Take  plenty of exercise ' indoors as well as  out. Walk, bicycle, skate. Tndoors,  danoing Is (he best way to get tho  foot warm. It is, however, not only in  the cold weather that chilblains at-  , tack ono ; mild, damp, winters are frequently ns bad for them, if not worso.  The best thing to use for removing  chilblains is the following lotion, but  they must. not be broken ones, or there  wiU be great harm do.no in setting  up inflammation ; Opodeldoc, one ounce;  tinctunTof cantharides, one-quarter of  an ounco ; oil of cajeput, one-quarter  of an ounce. Rub this in for. ten minutes at a time, three times a day. Tt  is essential that aperient medicine  should be taken every night when suffering from chilblains, and that tho  daily morning bath should bo warm.  T-o prevent chilblains from appearing,  use lemon juico daily, or,vinegar, to  which a fourth part of camphorated  epirits has heen added. Tea should he  givon up and cocoa taken instead; and  ood-liver oil should lie taken three  times a day, and a strong tonic as  Swell.  A good lotion for unbroken chilblains  is collodion, two buncos; turpentine, six  drachms : tinoture of benzoin, one-half  ounce.

''.-" -Any one who has a nice lawn, should  by all. ineane, have a lily pond. It is  easily made and a, thing of beauty.  There are many ways of making these  ponds, either of stone, brick or masonry, bu!lv������as these are all expensive,  we- will give our attention to another sort that will cost but a tow dollars, arid at the same time, last for  years.   Have a wooden tub made sim-  . liar, to a wooden cistern or tank, with  straight sides and about , four 'feet  ���������deep. It can be made round or square  and ae large as you wish, but should  not bo smaller than six teot across  This size will hold six or eight bulbs.  One foot from the bottom have a hole  two inches in diameter, and it, plug to,  fit it, w-hich m'ust be put in from the  inside, and project far enough to make  its removal easy. Make the top of the  tank exactly above this plug, so that  you may know where to find it when  the time comes to let out the water.  This tank should then be sunk in the  ground to within two inches of tho  top, then make a gravel border around  it of about eighteen inchos: When pro  SS^S^SlKffiSM GREAT BMTAII IS MIDI  ���������When the hard frosts are over in the  spring, remove the litter, add a little  rotted cow manure, and any new bulbs  you wish, and gradually refill with  water.  ', An admirable pond seen some years  since was made in the following manner: A hole, some twelve feet in diam-  oteer five feet in depth was first' dug,  and this was plastered with mortar  to (he depth of four inches,at the sides  and bottom. A pioce ot lead pipe was  put1 in to make the desired drain, and  due respect was paid to constructing  a place outsido of whore it went  through, so that (ho water would drain  oft through a layer of -rocks and sand.  When t he-mortar was dry it was treated to a coat of cistern cement. In the  center was constructed a miniature, island of stones and earth, and upon it  was a mass of foliage and flowers, while  pink, white and yellow water lilios filled' (he space around it, and some tadpoles grew- to bo sodale frogs under  the shade of ihe broad leaves. Ono  year half a dozen dwarf callas and  a lot ot old-fashioned "Wandering  Jew" made the island a fairy like  place, and several years later nm-  uryllis plants of many, colors revelled  in- (ho sun and moisture ot the island.  No one wh'o has not seen one of the  m'mature ponds can imagine their  beauty.  Fl VIS-MINUTE RESTS.  Few understand, except those who  have had to resort to five-minute rests  in order to keep up during a tedious  convalescence, how much elastiily of  figure is unconsciously acquired if the  body is given periodic rests during the  day. The cult of the five-minute rosters is gaining disciples among women whose- social duties are quite as  wearing ae those grimier ones of tho  kitchen slave or the working housewife; and the fad is'such a wholesome  one that the girl who wishes to koop  her freshness and save' hor strength  for congenial work' will do well' to adopt it. In-order to derive the greatest benefit from a five:minutes' rest,  one must relax all tho inuscles of tho  body, and of the mind, if possible. Be  a limp, inert, lazy bundle for a brief  spell. Shut the eyes, let the shoulders and hands droop, relieve all tension which dignity usually demands,  and  try not to think for 300 seconds.  WORTH TRYING.  To remove white spots on varnished  furniture, dip a soft flannel in spirits of wine and rub the spots well.  Afterwards repollsh the furniture  with  a furniture  cream.  A cup of hot water, declares Sir Andrew Clark ot London, possesses the  same medicinal qualities attributed to  an equal amount of whisky, while lacking the injurious properties. Hot water in abundance is especially recommended  in malarial troubles.  Carbonate of soda dissolved in water  will remove mud stains from dresses.  Lay the soiled part of the cloth and  wash and rub tho places with water,  keeping the dress quite smooth-  Ink stains aro entirely removed by  the immediate application of dry salt  before the ink has dried. When tho  salt becomes discolored by absorbing  the ink, brush it off and; apply more;  wet slightly. Continue until the ink  has disappeared.  A small dish of powdered charcoal  kept on one of the upper shelves of  the refrigerator is an excellent thing  to absorb odors. It should be changed  every few days. ���������'.".'"'���������  .

Another new gas has recently been  discovered, not in the atmosphere, this  time, but in"., tha gases given off by  certain volcanic fissures in the earth.  The discovery is interesting as affording one more proof that the elements of-which the earth; is composed  arc precisely similar to" those which go  to make up the. sun. It has. been known  for some time that certain elements  exist in tlie 'corona of the sun, of which  no trace' could ,bo found on earth.

Her Navy Never ho l-'lt for Active Service���������  i       France may  bu Fe.erlsli hut Britain is  Calm :tii(l CoiilMlciit.  Wrhilo the Gallic cock cries there is  barely so much as a wag of the British  lion's tail to show tho mood he is in  says the London Daily Mail. The  French folk may bo devoting night and  day to bringing their naval forces into a decent state, but it is certain that  our dockyards aro, if anything, less  active than usual.  This inaction is- not the outcome of  any supinenoss or inability to appreciate the gravity of tho situation, it is  rather the coolnoss of tho foreseeing  man who has all his preparations  made, and doesn't intend to wasto  breath in  unnecessary vapourings.  Recently our correspondent interviewed a prominent dockyard official  on the situation.  What is the best wo could do in tho  way of mobilization?" said ho. "Why,  if need be, wo could commission a  squadron ot cruisers hero this afternoon and have them off the French  coast by to-morrow morning.  "It is true we are taking things very  quietly, but why should ���������we do otherwise ? We can afford to take things  coolly. The French may ha^o to work  night and day to get their ships into  trim, hut ours are ready.  "What is the use of our Fleet Re-  servcand our mobilization schemes but  to prepare for crisisos like this?

This is done in order  that the water will have a place to  drain into when the plug is removed.  Give your tank a opat of waterproof  paint on the inside, nnd of tar on the.  the outside, before sinkirig it in the  . ground. This preserves the wood from  decay, and^ the tank will last much  longer. When your tank is all ready  fill it up to the plug with pond mud,  or any rich earth which has at least  a quarter, of cow manure, and put in  your lily bulbs. Run in the water  -gently eo as not to disturb the soil,  and fill but: a few .inches above the  bulbs. When they show signs ot  growing, add more water, until at  length it is almost or quite full.  When the water freozes to the depth  of a half inch, reach down and remove the plug, and after tho water  has run out, replace the plug, and fill  the tank full to the top with dry loaves  or loose hay and lay boards over the  tot).

'  A WONDERFUL WEAVE LOOM.  In the effort to meet German competition the fabric manufacturers of  Roubai, France, have developed the  new weaving machine, which in speed  surpasses I he. new Northrop machine of  American invention, and permits the  use of ordinary material. The fabric  produced is turned out at. tho astonishingly rapid rate of 100 to 175 yards  per day of ten hours. , There is great  economy, one workman overseeing six  machines, and the motive force is one-  half of tho ordinary requirements. The  fabric shows . a woven effect on one  side and, knitted on the other, and it  is believed that, the machine will be  a powerful factor in competing for the  plain goods market.if not for high  novelties.  THIRTY GOOD STRONG SHIPS  without ,an'y    particularly great exertion.  "At Portsmouth alone we have a  squadron of useful cruisers, all lying  ready to hoist the pennant immediately  thoy are required and all of which  would prove nasty opponents to an  enemy."  Thcro is no doubt that if the necessity for such action should arise our  fleets would' be found capable of swifter action than a good many Britishers  think them to bo. For some/years past  the Admiralty have been quietly applying lessons learned from other powers, and from our own experiments, to  perfecting our  naval  organization.  And so well has this been done (hat  the ships in tho Fleet Reserve at our  various dockyards are ���������. actually, not  supposedly���������ready to put to sea at  practically a moment's notice. The  naval mobilization which was Britain's  reply to the Kaiser's famous telegram  must not bo accepted as a sample of  the best wo can do iu this way. It was  a good, broad hint to tho Emperor,  and  it served  its purpose.  ���������  A mobilization of reserves in case of  war would be a vastly different affair. About 48 hours is the time officially supposed to be required for! getting a ship in the Fleet. Reserve ready  for sea. But so far as the ships themselves are concerned, a very much  shorter time than this would suffice;  it is obtaining the men to man them  that would cause the greatest delay.  Every ship inuthe A. division of the  Fleet Reserve^that is those that have  been.passed as completed for the pennant���������requires but to take aboard a  crew and its perishable stores to be  ready for active, service:  , Before the ships, are passed into this  division of the reserve they are fully  coaled and all their magazines are filled., The skeleton crews told off to  them are kept busy lookirig after (lie  guns, cleaning , ship, and attending to  the engines.  EVERY PRECAUTION IS TAKEN  to see that nothing is allowed to got  out of order, and ���������(hus impair the efficiency of the vessel for quick mobilization.- Each ship has its engineer-officer and undergoes periodical steam  trials. .  Just at the present nioment the. reserve ships are being subjected to their  annual overhaul in dry-dock, and (heir  engine tests. During the Franco-German war the French found that in consequence of having neglected to look  properly after (heir ordnance stores,  the shell in many cases would not tit  the guns.  To guard against any such occurrence as that in our navy all the shells  in the magazines of our reserve ships  are. periodically examined and cleaned.  The greatest care is taken (hat neither the guns nor (he ammunition required for use in (hem is allowed to  deteriorate .into an  unfit state.  There is lil.tl?. fear of a British warship ever going to sea with the offec-  I i i-eness of its armament, impaired from  this cause. In fact, so well are (ho  ships looked after that it: would lie  quite possible to commission a squadron of the fleet sit say, Portsmouth on  one day that, could appear before Cherbourg on the next.  In (vise ot great . emerge noy, the delay which now takes place between the  commissioning of a ship and sending  her to sea would disappear; the practice  of running commissioning trials and  having Commander-in-Chief's inspections is a laudable one, as it ensures  (hat our ships leave England for their  various stations in  TAUT, GOOD SEA-GOING TRIM.  But these are formalities that may.^be  dispensed with  when  we mobilize  our  fleet for .war.  |   An   impression   is abroad  that    the  ships  in our  fleet reserve are mainly  somo few are of little use except as a  kind of forlorn hope. On tho other  hand some of tha reserve ships are  quite modern. But few people have  any idea of the thorough way in which  everything connected with these ships  is organized.  . Already we have described the manner in which the dockyard authorities  keep the ships in fighting trim. But  this is only a part of (he system. The  stores of every ship in the reserve are,  carefully "laid apart" in the victualling depot of the dockyard to which she  belongs, so that they can be taken  aboard at any moment ihey may be  wanted. In tho big victualling store  houses lie hugo  piles ot provisions.  Each ship's complement of stores is  placed in a separate pile, which contains everything from tho smallest  pantry requisite to plate for uso in  the ward-room. There are barrels of  rum, boxes ot sugar, biscuits, tinned  provisions and mess traps. Each pile  is labelled with tho name of the ship  for which it is intended. They are  placed together systematically, and  never touchod except when wanted for  use, unless it be to examine tho contents of the oases, or to change the  grog that ha3 stood so long in cask  that the authorities deem it to have  become so potent a spirit  FOR JACK'S CONSUMPTION.  Stores for th������ torpedo boat destroyers are treated in the same systematic  fashion. In fact, as socn as ever a  ship, big or littlo, is ready for commissioning, tho victualling yard "lays  apart" hor stores, which remain in  readiness against the lima she wants  them, be that soon or late.'  This careful organization would have  its effect in war-time in enabling us  to get our reserve ships equipped and  put to sea without making much of a  fuss about it. By a singular regulation, when a ship is commissioned for  three years, the officers havo to purchase Ihe ward-room plate out of their  own pockets. At the end of the cruise  this plate is sold off by auction, and  there is keen competition for it, as the  Admiralty take good care that all the  articles aro of good qualify. If a ship  is bul mobilized for a short period of  service, such"as the annual manoeuvres  (ho officers are allowed to return (he  plate into si ore. With respect to the  manner in which our ships compare  with those of other naval powers, a  good deal that is interesting might be  wrillen, but it is an undoubted fact  thai our navy was never more ready  lo moot a foe than it is at the present  moment.  useless old crocks. But this is not (he  case. Many of them, though of obsolete   types aro    really   useful   vessels;  ENGLAND'S PRECIOUS RELIC.

The most precious relic in all England Is an old Gothic chair which  stands in (ho chapel of St. Edward, in  Westminster Abbey. It is made of black  oak. in Ihe gothio style, and the back  is covered with carved inscriptions, including the initials of many famous  men. The feet are four lions. Tho  seat is a large stone, about thirty  inches long, by eighteen wide and  twelve thick, and all tho sovereigns  of England for the last eight hundred  years have sat upon it when they were  crowned. The chair is known as the  Coronation chair, and the stone is  claimed to be the same, which Jacob,  the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham,  used as a pillow, when he lay dow-n  to sleep on the starlit plains of Judah  The kings of Israel, wereorowned  upon this stone from the time that  Ihey ruled a nation���������David, SauU Solomon and the rest.  The story goes that five, hundred  and eighty years before-Christ, at the  time of the Babylonian captivity, Cir-  cea, daughter of Sedekiah, the last king  of Judea, arrived in Ireland, and was  married at Tara to.Hermon, a prince  of the TuathadeDanah���������which is said  to be the Celtic 'name.'of.;- the tribe of  Dan.

They went hence to Ireland, and  from Circea and Heremon Queen Victoria traces her descent, through James  I., who placed the lion of the tribe of  Judah   upon   the   British   standard.  Jeremiah is said to have concealed  this sacred stone at the timo of the  destruction of Jerusalem and Ihe captivity of the ,'ews, aud to have brought  it, "ihe stone of the testimony," Bethel,  the only witness of the compact between Jehovah and Israel, to Ireland, where it was known as the lia-  phail. stone wonderful. It was carried  to Scotland by Fergus I., and ihence  to London in the year 1200, and has  Ium-u used at the coronation ot every  king and queen of England from Edward-1, down to the timo of Victoria.

An exchange argues  that tht-n1 is a  necessity in Canada  lor legislation to  prevent the grinding of employes' salaries by employers.   There is no doubt  about that, but to be effectual and just  the legislation  must he further reaching in its  effects than  has been  suggested by our contemporary.    It came  out through investigation in the city  of London, Out.,   the other day, that  SG.00 a week were the highest-wages  , paid to the street car operatives, who  ! striack for a betterment of their condi-  ;  tiori.   Go,  again,   into Eaton's  establishment in Toronto'and you will find  dozens of girls at work making their  low-priced, wages of; S2.50 per week,  not enough to pay-their board at any  respectable  boarding   heuse,   to   say  liothing of. alio wing for clothing  and  other every day requirements.  .These  low wages,   are often   the  means   of  driving   the   employes,    who   would  otherwise   live    honest,     respectable  lives,   into dishonesty and worse,  to  ���������procure the  means of living as others  .live.     Ask   Eaton   and.'  the   London  Street Car Co.   why  they  do not  pay  higher wages,   and  they will  tell-you  tbey can get many times as much help  - as they require at these wages, and, if  they paid higher wages competition is  .-so keen in their business   that they  themselves    would   ,be   ruined. ^   No  -doubt   there: is much   truth  in   this  latter   statement.      To   be, just   and  ���������effectual then,' the .required law must  Teach' behind the employers  and  remove tlie cause ' that 'compels ��������� employers  to reduce" prices of'products,  and  ���������iratos of service.     The question'   is a  large one,  aril cannot  be  ell't-ctually  dealt with, by  niiv  oiu  n-tion alon<\  If, for instance, the law of Canada compelled shoe iuaK.er6  to raise the wages  paid to their   employes,   they would  have,  to save themselves from bankruptcy, to raise the price of boots and  shoes, and if they raised it they would  find   their wares   driven  out   of  the  market by outside competition, which  would mean bankruptcy on  the other  hand.   There should be a conference  of representative men of all nations to  look into this matter fully,- and decide  ���������on some   universal plan of bettering  .the circumstances of employes.  There are some who contend that  because one manufacturing establishment makes money, it was made,by  grinding down the wages of the employes. This is not the case, as competition is just as keen the world over  with manufacturers as it is with labor  and it ispnly those manufacturers who  can command ample capital and adobt'  the best business methods that succeed the world over. The necessity,for  bettering the condition of the labor  market is.admitted on all hands, but  the agencies through which it can be  done, must be very far reaching and  universal in application.    '  amount   of money   received   by residents for exported  articles.     A large  portion of the  exportation i* of ores  from mines  owned wholly or partially  by outsiders.   The returns from these  do not go to enrich British Columbians  but non-residents.   If our mines were  all   owned   by   residents,   the   riches  heaped   up  annually   by  onr   people  would  be something enormous.   Taking things  as thej aro, however,  that  is  reducing our importation  by   the  goods   consumed in other   provinces,  and considering the portion of returns  of niinc-rals   exported,  owned   by our  own people, the province ia increasing  in  wealth  many times  more  rapidly  than any of the otner provinces, excepting Manitoba, and we are  doing  much better .than even   that province  is in its farm '.exports.

They also show  that for the last three years the exports have been, not only in excess,  but almost double the imports. But  the figures do not tell the whole story.  For instance, a considerable portion of  our imports at Vancouver and Victoria  was for goods not consumed in the  province, but in eastern provinces,  such as���������teas, canned goods, etc., etc.  If the portion of these we export again  was deducted from the total, it would  reduce our importation for consumption very materially. On the other  hand, our exports   do not show   the  CHINESE LABOR.  The Silvertonian thinks that The  Review, fer one paper, has not said  enough on the "Chinese question.".  The Review is one of these papers  that never says, on any subject, more  than' the ' circumstances warrant.  When a Chinaman pays the necessary  fee-to enter this country,he is entitled  to a full and impartial administration  of the law -protecting citizenship.  Temperance people claim that selling  liquor is injurious to humanity, yet all  sensible inch-of that class know that  'while-the'.law'recognises the liquor  traffic, dealers are entitled to thesanie  protection as to citizenship accorded  to all other classes of the community.  No one can deny that Chinese labor is  'detrimental to the prosperity of the  country, but the blame for it lies in  the law that allows Chinamen to come  into the country rather than on those  that.employ them while here. The  mine owners interested in this recent  trouble say they have diliii-ulty in  getting white n-ien cooks t'> suit them,  and have ������������������found it no. essary in tho  interiit of their mines to hire (.he  Chinamen. There anther, two "-ides  to llie story..'and both must be heard  before a proper conclusion can be arrived at. There arc in this matter two  important facts to look at: One is  that in the interest of labor in tlie province, Chinese labor must be wholly  abolished ; the other is that Chinamen  while here are entitled to the protection of the law the saiiie as other men.  These are all the principles involved,  and all that are open for newspaper  comment. ���������''...  "The Sandon Mining Review publishes 6ome interesting statistics relative lo the ore output of the Slocan  district. It shows that there are 25  shipping mines, which so far this year  have i iclded 27,000 tons. The annual  report of the provincial mincralolgisl  last year estimated that the average  value of a ton of Slocan ore is $110.  At this rate the value of the ore  shipped from the Slocan this year is  S2 070,000. Verily, the Slocan is the  richest silver-lead camp in the world."  Ves, Friend Miner, and further.

Their  bodies cry out biit.in a language that only,  the sufferers themselves can hear. When  a man is suffering' in this way his body  cries out with an aching head, a slusrgisli  body, muscles that are lax and lozy; a brain  that is dull, a'stomach that disdains food  and nerves that will not rest.

Town In M&ino Wltli ������ Nnmo That Ought  to  Be Changed.  The postoflico department has on niimpr-  ons oi-rasions insisted on changing the  juwvs of offices even when the nativei  tttf.l ri'i dt-sirc for such changes and protested aaaini-t thorn. It the Washington peoplo  wtoso fond of choosing appropriate names,  they should devoto their attention exclusively to thoso towns whoso inhabitants  desire relief. Such places aro surely to bo  found. Thoro is ono, for example, up iu  tlio iur eastern corner of Maine. It now  Tttjoiucs in tho namo of Bailoy's Mistake.  A contury ago it was called "Skunk's  Misery." Later the terms "Puduch,"  "Jlnrdscrabulo," "Mink Hole" and  .''Suokorvillo"  wore applied in turn and  - thon dropped because thoy didn't begin to  coayuy the prevailing idea. There was a  21bv; namo' overy year for a quarter of a  Sdiitury or so, and the nouiinco was really  Ssr more when Bailoy came along and shut  . off-further debate. ,  Bailey's Mistako was named for Sam  Suiluy.'n coasting trader who used to s::il  iato Luboc harbor as often lis once a rhomb;  ilto "mistake" part being added nt the  iiuie of Bailey's lust voyage, so that fiituro  navigators  and  geographers would know  : /whoso mistako it was. Th'ero are two wa-  lurways that load ujs to Lubec from the  .Atlantic; ocean, one a wide und navigablu  ibip ohannol and,'ihe other a wide and  locky shoal that affords excellent pasturage for flounders' and other fish of small  ; draft. About .ton- years ago Bailey was  boating his sloop up to the ���������Laiboc'uuchor-  agu and took the wrong way. Ho knew all  about the sh'oal water and the rocks and'  bad uocorae so familiar with the course  that ho'paid no heou, presuming that his  sloop could find .her way without help.  Shore is where tho "mistake" cumo in,  for trusting, too much to the intelligence ot  bis sloop the craft y.-out aground on tho  jocks and was chewed into toothpicks before morning.  '������������������ As nobody over saw anything of Bailey  or his crow it is -inferred that tho fishes  took what there was loft of them after the  woves had dono their work. From that  dale the term "Bailey's Mistake" was atr  taohed to this reach of wator and the land  on both sides of it, and now the ooast survey charts havo recognized the claims, so  that Bailoy's Mistake has become a geographical flxturo.���������Troy Tiroes.

Under old systems of clearing land  when tho country was now, there was  groat temptation to keep1 as much of  It cropped as possible, because there  was then very little land besides that  could be cultivated. Now, when on a  large farm apiece of woodland is clear-  od, tho farmer wan  ts to have it seed  ed, with grass    as quickly as possible,  so  that  it oan be  pastured.   But  tho  grass  sod keeps  air  from the stump  -   roots and thus keeps them from rotting  quickly,   so  that it' takes a good  many   years'    before    tho stumps are  ready for removal. Besides, where the  field is plowed eyerytwo or, three years  each time the land is plowed some part  of the roots will,be loosened or broken off, and the remvoal of those loaves  a  vaoant  place in  the soil, which,   of  course is filled with air, which hastens  the decay of what parts of the root and  stump 'are left.   Besides this,    & grass  sod pastured down,keeps the soil heavy  .   when it should be light, and as this lessens  the  crop that may be  expected  from the land, it ia a decided encouragement  to  plowing  it. Just hare  is  where  the advantage of seeding with  clover  comes  In'.   It would be better  If new land were seeded only with clover.   This keeps the soil porous down  to the depth of the clover roots, and as  they are. all' the time giving off car-  bonlo acid gas,  it makes stump roots  rot more quiokly when in contact with  olover roots than when the surface oh-  .',   ly is oovered with grass roots and there  are none in contact with parts of the  ..-   deoaying stump. Besides, if the clover  is sown with land plaster, it will hold  ' all  through the summer a great amount  of dew,  and this will also help  keep  the stumps moist.   We well remember  once  when  a   newly cleared  stump lot was seeded with clover seeing many stumps that were partly de-  oayed on the outside, and strong clover  plants growing up against them and  extending  their  roots among  the  decaying wood.   Sometimes one or more  olover  seeds will fall, into the hollow  stupms and take root in the sediment  that is always .> found at their bottom.  In such oases we always noticed that  the stump decayed very quickly. If we  wanted to rot a sound stump as. soon  as possible, we should do it by putting  oil  of  vitrol on its top until  it  had  eaten out   a hollow, and then fill this  ,    with rich soil and put one or more clover seeds in it to grow.   If we had depth  enough   of  soil   to  hold  tho  rainfall,  we. have no doubt    that these clover  plants  -would  soon' begin  to  eat   into  the   stump  and  hasten  its decomposition.    After two or three crops of clover have been grown, most of the stumps  of beech,   maple and  the  softer woods  will be rotted enough so that they can  be  profitably lifted out by machinery  made  for  this  purpose.   It is because  we believe in clearing away the stumps  early,  while   the  soil  is full  of  vegetable matter, that we recommend frequent seeding with clover rather'than  with   grass;   It  is  an  important  matter   to  have  new land freed  from   its  stumps  while   it   ia  capable  of  growing large crops, instead of leaving the  stumps to slowly rot out, and the soil  time and the horse will go gently along  without great distress. By proper  care in feeding and watering, horses  have so far improved that people have  assorted that' they were cured of the  heaves, and when a sharp doctor has  given some cure-all powders it has boon  thought that those powders had effected the cure. Any farmer, however, oan  think it out for himself, and see that  there is no place for powders or medicine to get in audi do good in such  structural changes. It should be noted that heaves is, the sequel of a bad  cold; therefore, when young horse3 are  sick: they should have the best attention, so as to prevent! the development  of this trouble.       ,   .'���������       ,, '' '  Good-Bye To LifeteiSS  -"rill    i j    it,.    ���������.,  temple came  into  further side  of���������the  (WATERING TREES AT TRANS-  ��������� PLANTING. ���������': ;.���������  A correspondent says:���������" I have  planted, perhaps, a million of trees m  my lifetime. I met with but few failures, and cannot remember, having watered-any of those trees. If th^ soil  is made thoroughly fine before planting ; if the soil about the roots is pressed in very firm, as firm as a fence  post; if the soil,is left loose on the  top, and kept continually loose by cultivation, the trees will live even  though the season may be dry." In  connection with this paragraph, it maybe noted that, on one occasion within'  the experience of the writer, a large  number of trees that had boon planted  in' the spring, and had grown tolerably well, shewed signs during the following' very dry summer of wilting  their leaves for want of water. An examination seemed to show that although the trees had been well planted in the common acceptation of the  term, yet the earth in, many cases was  not packed, closely around the roots.  It was not convenient to water them.  The owner was recommended to pound  the   earth   around    the^ trees with  a  heavy paving rammer.  This was done  It is almost impossible to convey an  idea, of tho force used on this occasion.  A force was exerted fully equal to that  employed by the regular rammers in  paving the streets: The earth being  very dry was-reduced to fine powder  by this process, and moisture was  drawn upward by capillary attraction.  In a couple of days afterward, there  was not the slightest sign of wilting,  although no writer had been applied,  and they; continued to grow without  any evidence of suffering for want of  water until the next rain came. Had  the soil not been heavily beaten in this  way their death would have been absolutely certain.  -:.... GIVE  COWSu GOOD' STABLES.  A cow, like a human being, suffers  from bad environment. Stables must  be dry, clean, well lighted, ventilated  and comfortable, else the animals confined in (hem will suffer in health.  Most of the bovine.tuberculosis is made  possible through the dirty, unventil-  atcd stables, and it spreads rapidly  through herds when once introduced  because   of  bad   physical  conditions.  A damp wet stable causes rheumatism in cows. Lack'of ventilation and  sunlight lowers their vitality, and  makes them resemble children who are  never allowed to breathe tho pure air  or to play in the sunlight.

A  thorough woman was Jessio, and as  such she appealed to the artist's temperament. Beautiful she could hardly  be called, but her clear gray eyes and  the curve of her small firm mouth went  straight to Will Preston's heart; and  before he was aware of it the inevitable had happened.   :       ������������������<������������������  Presently the shapely head was rais-  ed-from the collar of. the Norfolk jack-  'et,   and  a low   votoe   inquired:  " What are you going to do'.'with  yourself this afternoon, Will 1"  "Oh, I'm going to row out'to that  picturesque old wreck, and tako a few  sketches of , it."

Possibly our  oleared lands are less rich than they  used to be becausa, under present conditions, all parts of the trees find some  use, and none of them have to be burned on the land as refuse. But if the  newly cleared land is kept seeded with  clover, it will probably be as,rich by  the time the stumps are off as it used  to be under the old system, when it  had, at, the'first, an excess of potash.  That probably hastened the decomposition of the vegetable matter in the  soil, without at all hastening, but rather retarding, the rotting of stumps and  their   roots.  ia an impossibility.  The -wreck toward which the little  boat was rapidly cutting its way'was  all that remained of the schooner Bonnie Belle. A year ago she had been  driven by a storm on to a sunken  rock. At high tide merely a few feet  of hor sole remaining stump of a mast  was visible, but at low water she was  only  partially  submerged.  As Will Prefeton.lay back in the stern  of the boat fingering the tiller ropes,  ho could not but admire the stalwart  figure in front of him. Jem Barclay  was a young fisherman,.-living-down  in the village about a mile from Jessie Poole's lonely cottage. Uver six feet  in height, and proportionately broad,  his muscles stood out like bands of  Bteel as he pulled untiringly at; the  oars.  Soon they reached the wreck, and, as  it was now low tide, the boat was pulled alongside, and they clambered up  on to the slippery deck. The schooner  was but a imere shell after all, and  as Will peered down through what.had  Will heard the splash of his body! in  the water, and waited, horror-struck,  for any further sound, but nothing met  his ,ears save the -wash of the; waves,  He struggled to free himself, so that  he might try and save his would-be murderer, but though ho strained until  the cords cut into his wrists, it was  useless.  The fisherman had done his work only too well, and had himself kept back  the help that might, perhaps, have saved him. ! '."��������� ',; ���������'' i'  ��������� And as the-. utter impossibility of  freeing himself and the increasingpor-  il of his own situation became apparent to Will, pity for his dead rival  gave place to horror at the death so  slowly but.relentlessly approaching., lie  tried to wriggle up by clasping the  mast with his legs; ho found it'impossible,' and, black - despair began to  creep over him.  The tide had already turned, and was  creeping through the broken bulwarks,  and soon the. first wave came genlly  washing along the, deck, nearly reaching his feet.'Again he strained and tugged at his bonds in vain. He turned  his eyes longingly toward the boat,  which had /been moored to the side  of the schooner, and then indeed he  gave up hope, for it was gone !  The rope had been too loosely tied,  and .there was the boat, already fifty  yards away, drifting with the incoming  tide.  The sun was dipping toward the cliffs'  overhanging his - sweetheart's cottage  and, he knew that he had but/ an-hour  or two longer to live, unless help came,  and, that he felt was almost impossible. -;  ; Soon r the water ^reached his knees,  then in little ripples circled round his  waist. . ���������' ���������'��������������������������� -.''- .; ���������  w Another half-hour passed, and the  cliffs were lost to view, while the lights  began to-twinkle in the village and  along the little, wooden pier.

Click! click!  '���������;��������� He's a monkey on a stick,  they sang; and the shadow of a smile  stole, across the doomed man's face at  the appositeness of the '���������" Goisha's,"  words. Oh, if he could 'only get rid of  that suffocating gag, his cries might  be heard. But no sound came from  his aching throat and .the pleasure  steamer glided on her  way.  And now the water reached his chin,  and he knew his'life.could be numbered by minutes only. He fixed his weary  eyes upon one light that glimmered  starlike on the side of the cliff, away  from the others. - He knew it came from  the little room where his love would  be waiting and wondering what; kept  him. "������,':  And as he looked the light seemed,  to. go out for an instant;~ then it appeared again; again disappeared, and  once more flashed into sight. What did  it mean? Suddenly it struck him that  it was something on the surfaco, of  the water which kept coming between  his eyes and the light. Could it be  a boat?

Yes, yes, it was  boat;  coming straight   toward  him  Clung herself forward and caucht him  by the hair; then; moving her hand  lower, she grasped; his collar and pulled  with all hex might.  In an instant the gag was removed. \  and then poor Jess was plunged into  despair again as she found hia hands  tied and she realized .that her little  fingers were powerless to loose the  knotted rope, and she had no knife.  Then her eyes caught sight of Barclay's knife sticking in the mast above  his victim's head. With a cry of delight she. seized it, and in another moment the bonds were severed. At the  risk of capsizing the boat sho dragged  tho precious burden slowly and painfully on board; and at last he lay.  unconscious still, but breathing, with  his head billowed on her lap   Aa Will Preston* and his wife stood  before tho pictuTe of tho year at the  ensuing Academy sho looked up at him  with a littlo,smile,' and said:  " And what havo you callod it, after  all. dear?"

There is no radical cure for the heaves  .which is really broken wind from structural  changes in  the air cells of   the  lungs, but indigestion is often combined with heaves. Every disease has a beginning,   so   when   a horse   is   gelling  " heavey "   he   becomes much   more  so  when hitched up directly after breakfast  on a full stomach.    When this ia  repeated day after day, indigestion develops, and especially so when tho food  ia coarse as well as unsuitable. Horses  affected  should  be  fed    sparingly on  the best kind of food���������i.e., sound, clean  oats,   good,  coarse, whole wheat  bran  and   fine   upland    meadow  hay   ohaff,  which should bo free from dust, dampened and sprinkled over with table salt.  Once or twice a week a mash should be  ;   made  of  tho  feed and a pint of flaxseed meal  added to it.   This will soften the contents of the bowels and tend  to   prevent   indigestion    before  it  becomes  chronic  as well as the heaves.  Watering   is   another  item  to   be   attended   to   in   these  troubles.      Water  should  be  given,  half an hour before  feeding, never on top breakfast, dinner  or supper.   When you do this you wash  the food out of the stomach before the  gastric juices have prepared it for the  first   process  of  digestion.    This  produces    indigestion.      Affected    horses  should  not be allowed loose hay only  hay  chaff of fine quality mixed with  bran   and   oats   and  given   dampened,  litis diet will lessen the heaves in vol-  POINTED PARAGRAPHS.

He was startled  from his reverie by a laugh from his  companion.  " A man wouldna do much good, Mr.  Preston, once he got down there, oh ?"  There was something in the man's  tone that jarred unpleasantly upon the  artist's ear, and he answered shortly:  . "No; I think he could say good-by  to life."  "Then you can say good-by to yours,  for that's where you're going my fine  gentleman 1"       .  Will Preston turned- quickly round  in amazement, at tho words, when,  with an oath, Barclay flung himself  upon him, and bore him backward. The  back ot his head struck the deck with  a crash, and he lost consciousness.  When his senses came, slowly, back  toi him, he found himself propped with  his back against the mast, his arms  paused backward round it, and his  hands tightly bound together at the  other side. His cap had been forced  into his mouth, and his handkerchief  bound tightly round,, forming a most  officiont gag. Before him stood Jem  Barclay, his arms folded and his black  eyes flashing triumphantly.  "You see, I've changed my mind,"  he began. "It seemed a pity to chuck  you down in t'hold. You wouldn't ha'  had time to think over things. Oh, yes,  t know she refused me a year ago, but  I'd ha' won her right enough in time  if you hadn't come with your fine ways  and oily tongue.

'  Ho took his knife from his pocket  and drove the ��������� point into the mast a  few inches above his victim's head; then  ho approached the artist with the intention of taking his watch from his  pocket to hung it upon the improvised  hook, but Preston, though his hands  were tied, had the use of his feet, and  as his tormentor came within reach the  lunged out with all his force.  Taken unawares, the man sprang  backward to avoid the blow, and, forgetful of the hatchway behind" him,  lost his balance and fell down it. In  falling he turned half round, and with  too. And at last a straggling moonbeam came slanting across the sea, and  doubt gave-place to certainty, for, although still a long way off, he could  distinguish a figure in the'boat���������a figure that caused his pulse to throb wildly, the figure of a girl. Would she,  could she do it in time? He-was standing, now on the very tips of his toes,  and even, then an occasional wave,  higher than the rest, would wash into  his nostrils, and give him a foretaste  of what was to come .Nearer and nearer came the boat, and higher rose tho  water. Could he hoid out? The strain  was awful.  Mont  Careful   Hun   VT 11   Sometime  Make n SH*<������lfe.  On the day - after the recent robbery of a bag of one thousand sovereigns-from the Bank of England waa  announced, a depositor at a private  banker's office near by expressed his  opinion with great emphasis while  transacting his own business.  "Such monstrous carelessness /vyas  never known I" he declared- "The  gold was taken from the counter under the eyes of the bank clerk and the  messenger. The thief got away with  it before ho was seen by any detective,  and before anybody know that anything had been takon. ' Everybody  seems to have been asleep except the  light-fingered robber.

" Whatever can have, come to those  two?'' queried Jessie, as the shadows  lengthened, and still no Will appeared.  Throwing a shawl around her, she  strolled out into tho evening, and looked away over the sea. She could not  make out the- mast of the wreck in  the falling light, but something bobbing about at the foot of the cliff-arrested her attention^  "It looks like a boat!" she gasped  with sudden foreboding. And in an instant she was speeding down the path,  A moment more and she had reached  the shore, and there, not twenty yards  away, she recognized Jem Barclay's  boat���������empty; and something of the  truth flashed upon her.  . " Merciful Heaven 1" she moaned,  " The boat has got adrift und left them  on the wreck!"  There was no time to run to the village for help. What had to be done  must lie, done quiekly: With a fervent  prayer the brave girl dashed into the  water, clambered over the side, unshipped the oars, and in another minute the bow was once more turned seaward and the little boat was speeding  to the rescue.  At last, after a lifetime of doubts  and fears, she turned and saw thfl sunken' mast standing out in bold contrast  to the silvery pathway caused by the  rising moon; and at the base, on the  surface of the water, there was something else���������something round and dark.  With redoubled energy and panting  breath, sho tugged desperately at the  oars, heedless of the blisters on her  little hands. ..'���������'.

I glanced nervously at the communicator, though ho looked oven less like  a lunatic than ho did like a horse-  breaker.  "I see," he said smiling, "that I must  oxplviin.    When I left  Cambridge with  a classicav degree, ho prospects and no  influence.   I looked about for a profession.   I found everything overcrowded;  besides, none of the professions appual-  :-.   ed to me ttt all.   I like to travel about  a little, and I- enjoy social life.   I like  talking���������talking    to  anyone.      I hate  work of any kind.   This being t he case,  I looked about mo to see if there was  not u. chance for some new profession;  If among our million 'wants there was  not; one that was not  supplied.      The  Idea came to me by accident.     I was  stopping at my uncle's house when he  received as a present  from; his wife's  brother,    la. singularly  ugly,' but very  valuable pair, of oriental  vases.      His  ���������.   wife's .-brother' was' frequently - in my  uncle's    house,    (ind   .'therefore :  these  abominations had to  be displayed.      I  heard him1 grumbling  about  this.      1  suggested    that  he  should  sell   them.  The   idea,    was of course,   absurd; ho  told   me so.   Nor, he said,    could   he  break    them    himself,  for.his,   wife's  brother-would never forgive him; nor  could ho .ask his wife to break'them,  because, although he has been mart iad  fifteen years, ho felt that he did  not  know  her well  enough; nor  could he  : ask the  ^servants  to  break  them,  for  that would encourage carelessness and  thriftlossuess.   "That  is    all  right,'  1  said.      I   rose     from   my    place   and  smashed the vases,  one after the" other,    on    the floor.      'Sorry   I. was   so  clumsy,'  I .said,  'you  had  bettor ring  and havo  this rubbioli  cleared away.'  Ho rang, and told  Ihe servant  that I  had  broken 'them  accidentally.    When  she had gone ho said without a smite,  'It  seems rather a pUy,'  1  said, 'i am  very short of ready money.    Could you  lend me  five pounds?''    Ho  wrote me  a check  for    twenty,  and said that I  was a usefui man to know of.     Then  1 suid, 'Recommend me to your friends,'  for already 1    saw the possibility    of  my future; profession.      He mentioned  me to some half-dozen people ha knew,  some of whom 1 had never seen.in my.  life before.   They  sent  me-invitations  to their houses, and they indicated the  objects on which.-I-v.ias to operate. In  my first week,, I broke, I iremember, u,  .- lamp shaped like an owl,, an oil.paint-  v ing, a  tea-service    and a dining-room  table."      . ;:���������'���������  ."But an oil painting," I said, "How-  does one break an oil painting?"  "It  is  simple  enough,"  ho  said.   "1  first of all undid; the wires so that the  picture  fell,   then   in  picking  it  up I  .-.'.put my., foot through the face.   It was  a portrait of my host's wife's aunt. It  was more difficult to break the dining-  room table.   I recollect that it became  "'-      necessary for tho purpose to invent a  '     somewhat    boisterous -form  of    round  game.      Even then we had to play it  for    three    evenings    before  the  legs  catno off.   When I left this house my  host handed me a check and promised  to recommend mo  to other people.     I  never    advertise,   and    I    have    more  breaking, to    do  than 1    can possibly  find time for.   If I could find ii young  . . man with plenty of tact I would take  him as an assistant."  " "It must need some tact," I suggested.  "It does. It so often happens that 1  anri employed, by the husband without  tho knowledge of tho wife, or by the  wide without ihe knowledge of the  husband. Even with tho utmost tact  one gets oneself disliked, but that 1  must put up.wilh. The other day one  of my clients asked me to come to ..his  house ii ii-1 break a dinner service.

An incident which must have been  quite as lively in itself us it is in  the telling of it is given in "Our  World's Cycling Commission," in  Travel. The. cyclers were in Bengal,  where, one morning, Ihey ran up to the  only respectable-.'bungalow of a village, und called for some one to attend to their wants. To UieLr surprise, their summons was answered  by an Englishman, who explained that  his house was not the dawk-bungalow,  but who insisted on entertaining the  strangers at breakfast and dinner. He  was a mighty hunter and icgaled his  visitors with stories of adventure'while  ho showed his collection of skins. The  narrator says:  It was his tiger stories that made  our flesh tingle and our hair heave.  We were in I he very he ui, of the Bengal tiger district, and with the nonchalance of'a rabbit-shooter he told us  of the prevalence of these unwelcome  brutes, ft wad close here, ho said, that  they caught a tiger credited wilh having done to death two hundred natives.  Are we likely to be attacked ?" we  asked.  (, " Well, 1 don't know. You may be,  but I rather think, a bicycle would  frighten  a tiger,"  was  uie  reply.  Of Course we said it would be rather nice to see a tiger ; but as a matter of fact wo regretted having talked about the absolute necessity of getting away with the moonrise.

It was the custom of wearing patches on the face,  which originated with the ladies of  the court, who wore plasters cut in  the shape of crescents, stars, circles,  diamonds, hearts, crosses, etc. IJJence  the word "court-plaster." Some went  so far as to patch their faces with a  coach and/four, a 'ship - in, full sail,  a chateau, and many such things,  li'rom, this curious circumstance came  the -names Cross, Ship, Coulter, Castle,  'Crump, Shear, Cloak, Sickles, Vano;  Eldgg, Crow and Crabbe, and many  others  of  equal   significance.

Bnrkly's account, ot life at a  frontier  military  post  in  Basutoland,  South  Africa,   she  build   up  a medical  praotioe among the natives:  Fortunately, as It turned out, we  had brought with us medioal books  and a good mediciho-chest, so that my  fame as a lady dootor soon spread  round the district, and at last such  crowds came for English medicines  that'I had far more than I could do.  Whan I came out in the morning, I  always found rows of natives sitting  on the' ground, dressed in skins, and  oach holding a fowl to offer "me as a  fee. in payment for my doctoring; At  one time I had about two hundred  fowls.  .Of course I ventured to give only  mild doses,, and'ono of tho doctors up-  country told me that "it was always  safe to give a native a good dose of  jalap to begin with; it never hurts him!  The Basutos were much delighted with  pills, and they also liked a large bottle of medicine, but were not particular as to the. contents. '���������"'":.'..  I gave the'Basuto ladies various little things, chiefly large blue beads,  'which", they liked very much. One said,  through the interpreter, "No" doubt  these -aro what the Queen of England  always wears; we are very proud to  have the samel" .  us.  When the moon rose wc went down  to the banks of .the river Son, where  a boat was waiting to ferry us over.  In an hour and a'half we were landed  on Ihe edge of an eery covert, and  after some searching, hit the trail that  led through thick jungle toward the  Grand Trunk Road. Every instant we  expected a fearsome tiger - to spring  uihju us from Ihe thicket. Maybe, wo  conjectured, the animals keep close to  the   roadway,   watching  for, natives.  As our Rovers went spinning along  in the mellow moonlight, eyes were  strained ahead for any prowling object. Once, there was a quiok steadying down of pace. There -was some  be;ist running along' in the shade. It  wasn't big enough for a camel, it .was  too big for a dog, so it must be a tiger.  Never a word was said. Each pretended  not  to  notice anything.  "Now I wonder what brute that  was," one of us at last remarked, in  a   pretended   don't  oare voice.  " Oh, nothing in particular; hyena  or  something,"  was  the   reply.  All the while, the! animal was.bchav-  ing in a distinctly mysterious way.  Wo could see its dark form in tho  gloom. It was travelling ahead at a  leisurely pace, occasionally rustling tho  branches. Wo settled down to a dead  crawl in its wake. Suddenly the brute  strayed into a patch of .moonlight. .It  was a poor, insignificant donkey.  $100 Reward, $100.

No remedy 'we used  gave her the least: relief, and. she  became so ill, finally, that. ,������ho was  obliged to remain at liomo from school  for fully three-n.uartors of the time.

"I cheerfully certify to the wonderfully beneficial effect of Dodd's Kidney  Pills in cases of Pemale Trouble, for  besides my daughter's cure, I know of  a number of instances in'which they  have completely cured the sufferers."
