Interesting Description of Sandon by  tie Pen of Walter Scott of the  Regina Leader.  ,.     The Regina Leader that had many  ,   lengthy articles on the summer trip to  the west has'this in a   late issue oa  Sandon:  "Early Wednesday morning we were  again on the rail, the destination being  Sandon, distant from Kaslo, 28 miles.  A number of ladies and gentlemen of  Kaslo accompanisd us.    The K. __ S.  road is a narrow-gauge line, and  the  verdict regarding it was that the K. &  S. was the most picturesque and remarkable road we had got upon in the  course   of  our travels.     There   were  places ,upon it almost terrifying.   At  , one point the train was stopped to permit of a better view.   The car steps  actually overhung the precipice, and  standing upon them one, looked down  the sheer face of a precipice 1050 feet  high.   On the other side of the train  was a wall of rock towering 100 feet  above us.  discussed question there,was the eight-  hour law adopted by the legislature of  the province at- its last session. The  prevailing wage had been $3.50 for a  10-hour day, and the mine owners objected to paying, that rate for the eight-  hour day. On the other hand the miners refused to accept less than S3.50 for  eight hours' work. And so the case  stood:���������and work on many properties  was abandoned. 7 This condition was  felt seriously at Sandon and all through  the Slocan district. A common opinion among men who might claim to  be.disinterested, being neither mine  owners nor miners, was that while  much could be urged in favor of the  law, yet it had been adopted a little  too early. Such a large proportion of  the properties were in the experimental  stage���������so much of the work being done  _ . 1 i-        t -  WILL CLOSE.  It Is Expected That   the   Mine  Owners  of the Siocan Will Tie Up Their  Properties Indefinitely.  We have not the authority of the  SiJvor-Lead Mine Owners Association  of B: C. for it, but, nevertheless, we  have it from parties who know what  they are talking about that contrary  to the prophesy that the mines were to  open on the 1st inst. they will all close  up on the 15th, and remain closed until they can hire men at $3 00 a day.  This decision our informant says has  . ....       ....  was in the nature of development been brought about, principally by  rather than regular mining, that it was recent actions of the Miners' Union in  believed it would have been better for their interference with-, men working  some time to leave the question of the and men arriving tcrwork, Our in-  day's length as a matter of private con- formant further says" that the associa-  tract between the owners and miners, tion have decided to manage their own  The law preventing aliens taking up properties instead of ; having them  placer claims of course does affect managed for them by men, whose  Southern British Columbia to any ex-' chief occupation seems to be agitation,  tent, but the people there all appear to This decision will cover most of the  hold   an opinion   regarding   the law,   principal properties   between the two  or ever expects to receive, one cent  from any one in the province outside  of legitimate,payment for the ordinary  business of the office. The insinuation  that the paper is not now owned by the  named proprietors is of a' piece with  the rest of the inuendo.  As an afterthought we might add  that/though we are not in a.lluence we  have never had to stoop, like the Gulchite, to do others out of a job, to tricks  that are a disgrace to the profession.  What would the miners think if they  knew their would-be champion (though  only in a one-sided way) in business  went dead against their principles ?  Would they brand him as the thing  they despise, and which he is se free to  call others���������a "scab?". Would they  admit, if proof were given, that even  an enthusiastic heeler might be unworthy their trust, and' that those advocating justice and equal favors for  oil       ry,n���������       I .

A speed of 12  miles an hour  is  not exceeded, and  every   precaution  is taken to  guard  against mishaps.   The Kaslo & Slocan  By. is an independent line, owned by  the   Kootenay Railway & Navigation  Co.; which company owns also the Bed-  lingtou _. Nelson By.,   the Kootenay  Valley Ry.   and the   Kaslo & Lardo-  Duncan Ry.   Col. W. N. Brayton, the  general land agent of the company, accompanied us; to Sandon and proved a  mine of  information.   Our train ran  into Sandon to pick up Mayor Pitts  with a   committee,  and the   Sandon  brass band, and  then backed out and  switched upon a lino running  two or  three miles  iurther up the gulch to a  place called Cody, from where we could  see a number oi mines���������that is to say, I  tho buildings   at the   mouths   of the  mines���������among these being  tho "Last  Chance," very well named,  because it  is thousand, of Icet above tne railway  hne,   laid   in   fact   quite among   the  clouds.... Arriving back at Sandon we  were treated to a capital meal at the  Reco.   The band, which  had accompanied us up to Cody and enlivened the  trip wilh music, playod several more  selections  while we  were   at   dinner.  Later a meeting was held at  the city  hall, at which   jM-iyor Pitts   presided.  Alter making a speech of welcome the  Mayor called upon  Editor Cliffe of the  Milling Review (and formerly of Brandon, Mini.)   who road   tho   address of  welcome."   Thou followed the address  which appeared in Tlie Review at' tho  time ol tne Press visit.   Contiuning he  says :  ".Further welcoming speeches were  made by other oit'zens, and several  member, of our party replied. The  meeting over, down -he narrow "main  street, the Sandon lire brigade gave ah  exhibition run, which was very interesting. 7   _: V' .

The foregoing is not idle talk, we have the word  of some honest journalists to back us  up. Newspaper "so-bbing" should be  as objectionable te fair-minded miners  as that in their own line.  The Emily Edith is putting up magnificent buildings.  ,   J. A. Whittier is   now looking over  Windermere properties.  The Corncracker, near the Fidelity,  is said to be showing up well.  All the.' men came down from the  Reco yesterday except the watchman.  The ledge in No. 1 tunnel of the Lake  Shore, at Moyie, is 12 feet wide in excellent ore.  Percy Dickenson, of Slocan City, and  associates are purchasing properties  right and left,, and pushing development work extensively.  MURDER ST VICTORIA.  "As .there See Os.  The  Body of  Mrs. Bmgs   Found   Horribly Mutilated.  Slocan City and District.  The officials   of the miners' unions  are now putting on the varnish so thick  that it will soon all fall off and  take  some of the wall  with it. "-'��������� The other  day James Martin', M.P.P., of Rossland,  the father of the eight-hour law, met a  gentleman from here to whom he said,'  "I see the miners up your way are cutting up considerable trouble���������they are  agitating, for an increase of pay under  the   eight-hour  law,  while they   are  representing that the owners are endeavoring to reduce wages.   That will  never do.   The hand drillers all down  this way are taking i-S.OO a day, and if  they do not take it in the Slocan some  change   will have to bo made in  the  law to meet, the circumstances."  The public are all beginning to see  things this way. The business of this  whole country cannot remain clogged  indeiini' ���������'ly to enable a few officials to  triumph .with, a sentiment. If the men  want ������3.50 the owners are quite willing  to pay it, if the barring legislation is  removed, and sensible representatives  will see it must bo removed to enable  the country to become developed.  Renrthe Boarding Houses.  The general opinion of the miners,  anil of   many others besides  them, is  that they all along paid; too much in  $1.00 a day for   board.   Now, as one  step towards  a solution of the present  trouble, would it not be a good idea for  the unions, ['as  they are a   corporate  body, and could do it^i. a business way,  to see if they could not rent the boarding houses,   buuk houses and all ap-I  pliances as running concerns from the  owners, aiid as an institution run; them  'themselves, hiring all   the cooks' and  servants and buying all the provisions,  etc.   If. thoy ran them to clear themselves, say at J.5.5U a  week, it would  give  the men ah extra 21 cents a day,  and be one step  toward,   an amicable  settlement  of'differences.    We  belivo  that if tho unions  as a body took over  all the boarding houses   and ran them  that- way -on  business principles . ihey  could   board   the   men   cheaper than  thoy. have been boarded,   and make a  liltie,.noney besides;'  We do not'want to be accused in this  matter' of either meddling in , other  people's business or dictating ; but aa  the idoa is a practicable one and might  easily bo made'an item in unraveling  present entanglements, it appears to us  it,is worth considering.  Victoria, B. C, Oct. 2���������Though both  Provincial and City polioe are devoting  all their energy in the endeavor to obtain   a clue to the perpetrator of the  barbarous   murder   of Mrs. Bings   on  Friday night, the affair is still a complete mystery-   There is- a disposition,  however, this morning, to attribute the  crime to Indians founded on the. finding near the scene of the crime of a can  of fish put up in Indian fashion, and  evidently brought from'the north, and  the fact  that the dead woman's" empty  nurse was   found   between  the  place  of murder   and the mooring place of  canoes of Indians in town for a brief  visit.   The dead woman's clothes bointr  carried away, and the mutiltition being  [after the fashion of infuriated Indiaus,  leads  to  the belief that a klotchman  rather than a brave did the deed.  The coroner's jury this afternoon  returned a verdict to the effect that  deceased was found murdered by some  persons unknown. They added a rider  condemning .the Indian reserve as a  menace to the public welfare and a  hiding place for undesirable characters, and desiring.'- to' call the attention of the city council and of the Dominion and Provincial governments to  these facts.  (From our own correspondent.)  Slocan   City,   Oct.   2.���������The'. second  shipment of ore - from   Slocan City for  the Industrial Exhibition was shipped  this evening to Spokane.  Slocan City was visited the past few  days, by a party of distinguished capitalists���������Ex-Senator Warner Miller, of  Herkimer, New York; Mr. James McNaught and family, of New York city,  a high official of the  N. P. Ry.;   Mr.  Heuston, of California, and Mr. Webber, of Rossland, B. C.   They were tlie  guests of Mr. Percy Dickenson  at the  Royal hotel while here.   Mr. Dickenson is evidently the representative of  this syndicate  in this suction.    They  appear to have sufficient capital for all  favorable mining opportunities.  Mr Ernest Mansfield, who developed  the Joker group at the head of Coffee  creek, is expected here this week on  his return from London, Eng.  The Slocan Star let the contract last-  week for 200 feet of new work���������-half in  tunnel and half, in a raise.   There are  for or five men at work on it.  The Tribune has had the Bosun  working a large staff for some time,  when the truth is there are but four  men altogether on the whole Bosun-  Fidelity property."  On Monday last at the Slocan Sovereign, at a vertical depth of about 300  feet, a strike of 15 inches pf clean gal-  ,ena was encountered, that runs very  'high in both'silver and lead.  Of the mines in the association, we  believe the only exception to a general  close down between now and the 15th  is the Slocan Sovereign, and they are  running to fulfil a hard and fast contract only. No new work will, however, be undertaken.  About the time of the transfer  of the Fidelity to the Bosun Company  or rather the amalgamation of the  two properties, it was reported that the  Bosun company kept secret their  knowledge of a four-foot paystreak on  the Fidelity.. It now transpires there  is not a word of truth in the statement  ���������four inches were found and that is  all.  ���������lllfjill   City' Council.  Farewell Party.  The Concentrator Trouble.  A Comprehensive Work.  After the issue of The Review last  week, ;Mr. Alexander,   of  the   Ruth,  called  on us to say. our statement of  1 the differences between'then, and the  I Minnesota Silver Company, as 'to the  concentrator site on the   Night Hawk  claim, was hot in all respects correct  He says his people   had   agreed  on a  price for the site iu question with the  Minnesota Silver Co.   and   after   the  agreement   they went to   tie K. & S.  1 and took  a lease of the same property  I from Mr; Irving  without letting, that  gentleman know anything about   the  .former'.: arrangement.     On  ihe   other  hand the contention, of the Minnesota  people-are that'it was a lease of surface  thoy Wanted,  which was vested in tho  Railway company and not in tlie own  crs of lho mineral claim,   Of.oiu.e it  1 is a point, of law and in so fur ns the  personal features of tho case are concerned Tho Review has no dwiro to in  t.rlero, aa it is nol of  pMbliomonicnt.  Our hope is, however, that the differences may yet be  so adjusted   as they  are likely to bo, that Sandon may not  lose the concentrator.   Tlio ph.ee wants  all of such iii.titutio-s it can-possibly  secure.   ���������  As a parting salute to Miss Wilson  )who left on Thursday, to take up her  residence   in Vancouver)   her friends  got up a dance party, in,Virginia hall,  where everything was arranged  for a  merry evening.   A pleasant deviation  was made from the usual course when  the guest, by request, gave a vocal selection, which was heartily encored and  responded to with a pretty ballad after  which   she,   in  a neat   littlo   speech,  thanked ber friends for their kind de  monstration   and assured   them   that,  whether   in Vancouver   or- elsewhere  they would always find her the same  Old Wils., which, as to name, some are  inclined to doubt.   A tasty lunch was  served in   the  hall,   after which   the  mazy dance was kept up until.about 2  a.m.,   when   the   pleasant   gathering  broke, up  with "Aula Lang Syne" and  "For'she's'ajolly good fellow."

Stephanus Johannes Paulus Kruger,  President of tho Transvual, is an interesting public character. Upon being- introduced you first conclude thai  _!_ has been greatly overestimated. He  seems nothing more than a shrewd old  hunter, who, (by constant contact wilh  wild animals and savage Kaffirs, has  dcvo__p_d a wariness lhat .makes him  suspicious of everything and everybody. ,   (  His legs are so ariort and slender that  you wonder /_iow they boar tho weight  of a heavy thick and solid body. His  head is big and his nock is concealed  by1 beard, hair and coat collar, so lhat  you, cannot determine whether or nol  he indulges in neckwear. At home he is  usually puffing a short brier pipe, and  as he handles this you notice that Lhe  thumb of 'his left hand is missing.  There is a story connected with this  that Kruger wih tell you between puffs  LC ho is in the mood. It gives an idea  Df the Sjrit which is a characteristic of  the old -.Boers.  When Kruger was a young man ho  was out hunting one day with a rifle  which had not been used for a long  time. While he was tinkering with a  charge the gun exploded, tearing his  , left thumb lo shreds. Kruger's companions wanted to give up the hunl and  hurry to the nearest surgeon, bul lho  Intrepid young Boer refused. Taking  out his hunting knife, he placed tho  lacerated thuxuli on the slock of the  rifle, and ,  AMPUTATED   IT   HIMSELF.  By  tying  about  tho stump a piece of  rawhido he stopped the flow of blood,  and winding around it his red handkerchief he continued the sport.  Physical robustness and courage  have contributed greatly to Kruger's  success as tho leader of a nation. He  is absolutely, fearless, though not reckless, and since boyhood has known how  to act quickly  in  an emergency. .  When only, 14 years 'old, he! and a little sister strayed away from lhe Jaager  town in Cape Colony, where the elder  Kruger had, settled on emigrating from  Germany, and while playing were suddenly attacked by a leopard. Young  Krugors only weapon was a jackknife,  bul shielding his sister wilh ono arm,  he met tho vicious spring of the leopard with' the other, and after a struggle succeeded, in stabbing it to death.,  One is hardly warranted either in  speaking slightingly of " Oom' Paul's  legs, for they once ran a race that  made him famous all through the na  tive tribes in Soath Africa. A Kaffir  chief had become celebrated for his  running ability, and had never been  beaten until challenged by a number  of young -Boers, who chose Kruger to  represenc them. It was decided that  the two should run for twelve hours,  and the man leading at the end of  th'at1 time was to have sort of a prize  At the end of eleven hours the Kaffir  dropped in his tracks unconscious,  while Kruger kept on to tho finish,  and, according to one of his companions, was so fresh then that he took  part in a hunting trip.  It is the appearance of rough hardihood and the unkempt personal attire  that firs|fc impresses one on meeting  "Oom" Paul, but when the man begins to talk you forgqt all else but  Kruger, the .diplomat,, and careful  8tatesnxap.   He ' gave   the   writer  A SHORT INTERVIEW  recently for publication with the understanding that the Boer side should  be' represented 'from his own viewpoint; first inquiring if I were a spy  from Cecil Rhodes. On being assured  to the c_ntrary. by a number of Volks-  raad members, who were present, he  followed up by another customary question, asking "What is your religion?"  These two inquiries give an insight  into Kruger's life. His, first duly, he  believes, is to God, and his second to  guard against Rhodes, whom lie detests like a poisonous reptile. But for  Rhodes, Mr. Krugor says, all would be  peace and quietness in the Transvaal  So long as this man is' in South,Africa  there is no rest for the Boers, and  their secret service, agents 'may be  found, on every street in Johannesburg  on   the   lookout for Uitlander conspir-  JTlflTTtH     nnur    Tl.TTT    Iroom  only.

In his speeches before the Raad ,  HE  QUOTES   SCRIPTURE  generously, and even more so in conversation.  As for his private life that seems  to bu exemplary. After rising, ho  prays lor a. long time iu his room,  and " talks over with the Lord" tho  i.ueslions of -the day. When he develops a conviction in this way ho proceeds to ;ic(j on il. Kiuger's pielyi once  nearly cost him his lilo, according to  a current story. A good many years  ago he suddenly disappeared, and when  he failed to show up, a searching party  was made upi lo hunt for1 him. At lho  ond of three days they found the future President, who was then a fiold  cornel, lying face down on tho open  veldl. He had^been praying three days  and nights steadily, without food or  waler, and was nearly dead. When carried back and revived, ho explained  that he had done it us a chastisement  for his sins. i  Two stories the (inlanders rolale lo  offset Kruger's reputation for piety.  Ono was recently printed in a Natal  .paper. It accused Oojn Paul of punishing ____ of his Kaffir boys once  by tying him under his wagon, spreading out legs and arms, and making  them fast' to the axles. The boy was  hauled for two datys in this position,  declared the writer. On another occasion Kru'ger, when he was trekking,  lost an ox and could not find another  lo take its place, so he hitched up a  Kaffir in the team and completed the  journey. This Kaffir is still living  near lu-eikopjes, in the Orange Free  Slate, at a ripe- old age., so i the experience does not seen, to have injured  him. In fact, he seems rather proud  of the distinction.  The first question put lo Oom Paul  was why he did not give the CJitland-  ors the right lo vote which the English put forth as thoir chief cause for  complaint.  KRUGER  SMOKED   HARD  for a moment, then laid down hia pipe,  and placing   his   hands  on  his   knees,  said: ' ,   , l  " A man cannot serve two masters.  Either he will hate the one 'and cling  to the other, or despise the one and  love Lhe other. Now, tho Englishman  wants to do.this. He demands the franchise from me,' desires lo become a |  burgher, and yet when it comes to  trouble, he would forsako us in a moment and claim tho protection of tho  Queen. How can 1 give such men the  chance to vote? They do not take any  interest in our country. They have-not  come here to settle. They wish us no  good. I Want ,to be fair with' every  one who comes hero lo live, and when  he has proved that ho is a good citizen and has come to help1 us, I want  him to vote. But we havo, a law for bigamy in the Transvaal, and it. is necessary, for a man to put off his old love  beforo taking on  a new."  Kruger related; graphically and briefly the history of the Boors from- the  lime llieyi settled in Capo Colony, from  which tney were driven by the English until they settled in the Transvaal.  On this great trek Ihey killod G.OOO  lions, out of which number Kruger  himself killed 250.  They fought   their  stocking.   This was B_H. Kruger. She  got Mr. Kruger's hat, escorted him to  the door, and then went back   lo   her  knitting.   Ii was difficuU  lo think of  her as the first lady of 'the land. Yet  she  has  been   Mr.  Kruger's  constant  helpmate through all the years of his  public life, and their'affection for each  other seems to havo grown with each  succeeding year.  She  is Mr. Kruger's  second wife, and was a Misa Bu Pies-  sis, a name of prominence in South! Africa.   Kruger's first wife was an aunt  of Miss Du 1'lessis, and bore him one  son,  who died.   Sixteen  children wore  the fruit of  tho second marriage, and  of (hoso seven are living. The girls are  comfortably married to burghers in and  about Pretoria,  and  tho boys take, an  active interest in lhe army.   Ono son  in-law, Capt. Eloff,  has made himself  famous by   building   the most  expen  sivo. mansion in  South Africa. He has  made  a fortune   in   real  estate  opera-  tions, and is supposed to be worlhi ������2,-  000,000.   One of  Kruger's  sons  act  as  his secretary, and another is Captain  of ah infantry company. Mr. and Mrs.  Kruger live in a littlo two-storey cottage,  painted white,    and    covered in  front with morning glory vines. Their  mutual ambition 'is to see I heir nation  independent of Great Britain and then  spend their  last  d.ys peacefully    and  iquietly in this little home.

Thoy  and ono other Boer were selected to  conduct tho affairs of the Transvaal  when it was in rebellion against England in 1881, and Gen.

From all outward appearances, Oom  Paul is intensely pious and though  some insist that it is all hypoorisy,  there \& no proof 'that Kruger does not  live in strict accordance to his preaching. He was confirmed in 1842, byl the  Rev. Daniel Lindley, an American missionary, and from' that day to this has  led a severely Christian life after the  precepts laid down1 by, John Calvin. He  can quote nearly the whole Bible, and  ' this has served him well in a secular  way, for 'he has learned from- it to  speak in- parables, terse epigrams, that  are readily interpreted by his followers, and have more force than the most  brilliant rhetorical flights.  Kruger, in addition to his other accomplishments, is 'by far the best  preacher in the Transvaal, and , the  Dutch Reformed) Church boasts of some  capable men there. He occupies the  pulpit in a modern brick edifice across  tho street from, his home about once  It month, and alwa>ys talks to standing!  one else to possess her.1  " Can the English starve you out?"  "If tho Lord wills it,' yes," he replied. " If not, the English can, build  a wall around us as high as Jericho  and we will live and prosper;"  Kruger'has provided against a siego  by building storehouses,and granaries,  where meat and grain are kept in  great quantities. The great drawback  to the Transvaal-is that it lacks a, seaport. The most convenient one, is De-  lagoa Bay, owned by the Portuguese.  As Portugal Is mortgaged to England,  the' latter country controls it.  Towering over Johannesburg is a big  fort, and working iii.subterranean passages, tho Boers, it is said, have undermined, the whole, town, evon to Commissioner street, where the pride of Johannesburg's buildings are, located  The Boors can muster 30,000 men, all  well armed and good marksmen. They  have warehouses full of ammunition,  and their present defenses and power  to wreck Johannesburg and the mines  are a sufficient menace to Great Britain to make her hesitate.  KRUGER IS NOW 76 YEARS OLD,  and has been elected/to the Presidency  fouT times. His salary is $35,000 a year  with ..1,600 for coffee. His life has certainly been a remarkable one, and at  different stages he has been a farmer,  herdsman, hunter, soldier, clergyman,  ambassador, finanoier, head of the army. In recent years ho has bought  and sold land a good deal, and is reputed to be very wealthy. His habits  and method of living 'are so simple,  however, that -he could have saved  nearly all his salary in these years,  which would give him a tidy .ortune.  As he closed the interview Kruger  went across the hall into a low-ceil-  inged, white-washed, room-, and spoke  to a motherly little woman, who was  seated in  a   rocki ..g    chair,    darning  straightway proceed to shoot those  dogs, thus making j yourself liable to  greater damage than iho value of the  sheep destroyed, or ivould you lay hold  on those dogs and carry, them to your  neighbor, 'saying,' ('Now, here's your  dogs.

Porto Rican brides do not waste  much time , or money upon many  gowns or t_jose for public display. It  is .to please the eye of the husband  alone that all tine arts of construction are expended in house gowns,  lingerie and negligees. A popular  model is a cambric princess, the front  ai niass of lace and. drawn work round  neck and gossamer tight fitting 'or'  flowing angel sleeves.

The ceremony over,  they return to the bride's home, whereupon she lifts'the veil froml her head  and throws it over that of her nearest  girl friend, who cuts-it into bits and  distributes it among the unmarried  guests.    '  The bride then strips to pieces the  orange blossoms of 'kbr crown, and also those, which deck her gown more or  less elaborately, according to the number of her guests, and a spray is presented to eaclh. -Tho fun then grows  lively over counting Hue blossotms,  those full blown signifying years, the  half blown months and, the buds days  which will intervene before the recipient's marriage.  Tiho bride then retires to make a  change in another special feature of  her array, the bridal garters, which  are elegant affairs, ornamented with  white satin rosettes and orange blossoms and suspended from the waist by  strands of w__lte satin ribbons. Each  garter is enclosed in a pretty box and  presented to her most intimate girl  friend. The strands of ribbon are sut  into pieces and distributed attnong the  other guests. Than, simply attired in  th'e wedding gown, sometimes even this  laid aside for another, the bride and  the festivities take the form of those  usual to such occasions.  ag_ number of working hours is eight.  In France the salary of postmen is  fixed by the number of kilometres  travelled and not according to any  fixed grade.

Sweet Pickled Peaches.���������Pare firm,  white peaches, weigh, and to each  pound of fruit, allow half a pound of  sugar. To eaph six pounds of fruit  allow a pint of vinegar. To this add  a tablespoonful each of ground cinnamon, mace and cloves, dividing inlo  three portions and tying each in a bit  of thin muslin. Lay the fruit and sugar in a preserving kettle in alternate layers, put in the vinegar and  spices, and let com. slowly to tho boiling point. When the fruit is sufficiently tender skim it out into a platter,  boil the'syrup until it is thick, return  tho fruit, and let it heat again, (hen  (put into cans and seal. Pears may be  pickled by Ibis rule.  Sweet Pickled Peaches, Whole.���������To  eight pounds of fruit allow four pounds  of sugar,, a quart of vinegar and two  ounces each of stick cinnamon, and  whole cloves. .Rub the fruit with a soft  cloth to remove the fuzz and slick a  clove in each. Or pare the fruit if you  prefer. Heat the vinegar wilh the  spices, pu I in what fruit you can cook  conveniently, let boil until it can' be  pierced easily wilh a fork, skim out  inlo a jar, and put in more, until all  have been cooked. Boil the syrup down  lilt il is thick, and there is about half  as much as at first, and pour over,  tho fruit. ,  Ripe Cucumber Sweet Pickles.���������Pare  twelve large, ripe cucumbers, and take  out the seeds and soft pulp. Cut in  strips two inches wide- and three or  four inches . long. Then take two  pounds of sugar, a pint of vinegar, an"  ounce of cinnamon and half an ounce  of cloves. Let boil up, skim, then put  in tho cucumbers. Cook till tender, then  boil the syrup till it is thick, pour il  over the cucumbers and seal up. These  make a very acceptable sweet pickle,  if one has  not much fruit to put up.  WATERING  FLOWERS.  One   great   cause   of  failure   to   secure  bloo.s  is  injudicious   watering���������  deluging  at   one   time  and  withholding at another and paying no attention to th'e needs of different varieties.  The appetites and needs of plants are  as various, as those of people and\ their  temperaments   differ,   loo;   there   are  the sanguine, the sensitive, the phlegmatic���������each requiring! being dealt wilh  accordingly.   While    one   plant     will  thrive,  notwithstanding    the    ulmosL  neglect  and' subsist   on  almost  noLh-  ing,    another  must    have nourishing  food and warm  drink.    It is a ��������� good  plan  tb adapt  the water to the temperature of the room, never using cold  water  and  always   being    sure    that  the  drainage   is   good.   Once  a plant  will  droop  and   look    sickly   without  any  apparent    cause,    when,   if    tho  mailer is looked into, it  will be found  that water stands  in   the  boLtom  of  the jar.    A  bent  wire is always useful in, this case, for by penetrating the  holes at the base of ithe pol and slir-  ring the earth, passages will be made  for the escape of  tho Water and gas.  Then water freely, being sure that the  water runs through, quickly;  drain all  off; -loosen the soil  a,, 'the top of the  jar  and  withhold  moisture  until  the  plant is again  healthy. The calla,  as  is well known, requires plenty, of water  and-.that   which   is- quite   warm ;  fuschias are thirsty plants,   especially  when in flower   and moisture is  necessary ,tp  the   Chinese  primrose.      The  majority of plants,  requires a weekly  bath ; in fact, nothing invigorates Lhem  as   a shower   bath     of .,',tepid    water.  Those which cannot be removed readt-  ily for the showering, may. have their  leaves  sponged.  The  ivies  should    be  sponged frequently,    while  primroses  and  ornamental  leaf   begonias should  not have their foliage wet, but is well  watered at the roots.,  work that a machine can do as well.  The business man mates use of every  imp'rovement if he hopes to keep pace  with the world. The wages, waste and  annoyance of such girls as usually go  out to service cost far more than the  modern conveniences which make  housekeeping a pleasure. If ' competent, trusty girls were plentiful, then  indeed would the life of the wife be  bright. If she keeps up with the  world, if she makes her children proud  of her, then she must economize her  strength. When farmers and farmers"  wives refuse to " trade" butler and  oggs at the country grocery; when  they sell for cash and buy what they  need when they want it, and where  they want1 to, Lhon will we hear less of  lhe cry1" I cannot afford to have lino-  leu_n' on' my floor, or an oil stove, or a  refrigerator."  HOW, TO  DRY WET SHOES.  When without overshoes, you have  been caught in a heavy rain storm,  perhaps you have known already what  to do with your best kid boots, which  havo been thoroughly wet through,  and which if left, to dry in the ordinary way, will be stiff, brittle, and unsightly. If not, you will bo glad to  learn what I heard only recently,  from one whose experience is of value.f  First, wipe off gently with a soft  cloth all surface water and mud ; then,  while still wet, rub well with kerosene  oil, using for the purpose tho furred  side of Canton flannel. Set them  aside till partially dry, when a second  treatment of oil is advisable. They  may then be deposited in a conveniently warm place, where ihey will dry  gradually and thoroughly. Before  applying French kid dressing give  them a final rubbing with the flannel,  still slightly dampened with kerosene,  and your boots will bo soft and flexible  as new kid, and be very little affected  by their bath in tho rain.  TANSIES. .  When pansies are firmly established one, will bo surprised al tho growth  that they will make. They aro gross  feeders and require frequent stimulants; liquid manure carefully applied at the roots increases the" size  of thc blossom. Once a week is not  too often to apply this fertilizer and  they must' be constantly -supplied wilh  water. Cut every flower as soon as  withered, pick off. the dead leaves, peg  down the straggling branches and you  will have a pansy bed of marvelous  beauty. In midsummer it is a good  plan to cut back the plants that camo  from the fall sowing and that blossomed all spring and summer, and let  them gather strength for plentiful amd  fine autumn blooming. Remember  that the three necessary elements of  a success are; rich soil, a shaded situation and careful watering.  sor-  how  LIQUID AIR IN    SURGERY.  As in the case of the X-rays, it is  possible that one of Lhe earliest practical uses of liquid air will be iu surgery. Already -experiments have indicated that a spray of liquid air can  be applied as a. local anaesthetic," but  the application should never be made  except by an experieuced operator. In  a (minute a small part of the body can  be frozen as hard as ice, and surgical  operations cbnductod with the aid of  liquid nir aro attended with no hemorrhage. In jibe Medical Record Dr. A.  C. White describes various experiments  with liquid air, including the successful treatment of such diseases as sciatica, neuralgia and ivy-poisoning.  Boils and carbuncles can bo aborted  with liquid air, and it is useful in the  treatment of ulcers.  SUGGESTIONS TO HOUSEKEEPERS.  : Southerners dry tomatoes instead of  canning them. They take fine ripe ones,  scald them to remove the skins, cook  them- with no water and with only a  little salt-until quite thick; spread on  plates and dry. Pack in paper bags  and keep in a dry   place.  The suggestion is oft repeated in  our domestic exchanges, that in making fruit pies the sugar bo put upon  the lower crust and the fruit on top  to prevent " spitting out." This almost always results iii making a lower crust thai, is " paved" wilh partly dissolved sugar and which is totally indigestible. Make your pies rather, by mixing sugar with about one-  third flour, and sprinkling it on top  of the fruit. With good-sized apertures for the escape of steam���������and a.not.  too hot oven���������there will bo no troublo.  Fruit pies should be baked slowly in  a  moderate oven.     ,  W)._y not keep some clusters of grapes  for tlie Thanksgiving dinner? Choose  Catawbas, Isabellas or Vergennes.  Take those that are perfectly ripe and  sound. Wilh a scissors carefully , cut  out every crushed or imperfect grape.  Lay on trays, cover with paper, and  keepi where they wilt be both coldand  dry. By taking the late grapes, and  managing this way, the grape season  can be prolonged. An eye should be  kept on them, aiwl if any begin to decay use . them at once. Alternate  warmth and cold will soon make then-  decay; so willmoisture.  BUYING   STRENGTH  SAVEI.S.  Ib is usually poor, business to do any  THE MODERN GRANDMOTHER.  Where is she���������this dear, departed  grandmother of our youth? Who does  nol remember lhe hallowed, saintly  woman, seated at the fireside, her  Bible and her knitting alternately occupying her attention. At this shrine  all cur childish foibles were confessed  and forgiven. Her silvery hair, neatly parted, her placid face, her genlle  presence, commanded our confidence  and adoration. We see her no more;  she has vanished from our midst.-  In her place is a grandmother certainly, but a modern one; a woman of  health, beauty and opinions. She has  thrown off her shackles; she no.longsr-  reigns as Queen Regent under the  despotism of children and grandchildren. Her.duties as mother aire over,  and she has the .leisure and right to  enjoy life to the utmost. 'The easy  Chair is vacated, but the opera-box is  filled. Her intelleclual activity is beyond the comprehension of . youthful  matrons who. try in vain to keep, pace  wilh her. She is an honored member  of literary and political clubs, ; and  does not even hesitate to walk through  the paces of a stately minuet with old-  time grace. No social gathering' is  complete without her. Her grace and.  dignity never infringe upun the rights  of others. Her gaiety; and brightne-s  are mellowed without being dimmed  by tho experiences o������' tho past. She  is nol; only passively happy, but actively  enjoys* and  participates.  Grandniamma understands hs'g.ene;  she has m.ule a study of it���������as is shown  by hor tresses, as abundant as any  maiden's; her eyes as bright, her  teeth as brilliant. This wonderful  grandmother holds her court in the  ball-room, undaunted by youthful advantages of hor grandchildren ; tact  and experience count for much. Her  grandchildren are hor confidential  companions���������as ornamenlal to her as  her diamond., serving to enhance her  beauty, nol detract from it.  However, perhaps when the dfgnity  of great grandinolher is conferred up-,  teeth as brilliant. This wonderful  energy, she finds the fountain of perpetual youth, she will return to , her  place at the fireside and resume her  Bible and knitting; thus our dear  forgotten grandmother with her quiet  gowns and dainty laces may be restored  to us.

From their standpoint,  they are in no way  to blame for  that ;  but governments who  are supposed to  be  the guardians of  the interests of a  country, present   and future,  havo  in  finitely greater  responsibilities.    As we  understand the matter, the owners  are  not   not   es].ecially   anxious   that   the  clause of the law regulating eight'hours  as a standard day for operations should  be removed; but that operatives, where  conditions   require it   and satisfactory  arrangements all around can be made,  Ide allowed   to work longer.    They are  quite willing that eight hours should be  a day, unless arrangements satisfactory  to employer and: employee are made for  over time.     In   every   such   case   the  length of over time,   the  consideration  for it,   on  one side'  at least, to  be  determined by the employee,  and   need  not   be countenanced   by him   where  healthy comfort and every other condition favorable to satisfactory labor are  not assured.

Tho  latter are advertising far and wide that  there is a strike here when they know-  there is none, and the local officials of  organized labor acknowledge there is  none.    A   strike. occurs   when'labor  stops operations suddenly- because' of  some dissatisfaction   with  employers.  That has not occurred.   In the spring,  the owners announced that-they .'would  close their mines at a certain time on  account of conditions on the properties.  They did it, and have since been unable to re-engage men because of the  operations of the law. It is a labor  difficulty certainly, but not a strike,  arad the labor leaders who call it that When you speak of the present min-  and announce it as such to incoming ing trouble in the presence of a miner,  labor, are simnlv nnt o-.-_-.t.<v' ������-....  <������������������-..

Such privileges are conceded  .to every other employer of labor in Canada ; and will any fair man say, or at-  . tempt to say, why the mine owner, who  is contributing more than any one else  to the revenues of the couritry,should be  thus singled out for an excetion. "We are  fully convinced that the businessmen,  almost witheut an exception,and a large  percentage of the miners themselves,  must see the matter in the same light.  The farm hand works often' from -5 in  the morning to S or 9 at night, often in  exposure,   the. fishermen   even   longer  hours in still greater exposure, the clerk  in the store under close confinement not  rauch less, .the mechanics .often iii dangerous avocations, the laborer under exposure, and in   most instances for less  wages,   but  the miner alone is singled  out for a protection that deprives him  of his liberty simply because in elections  he is supposed to have  a considerable  vote.      <  As we have shown above, the owner is  not asking for anything unreasonable,  and it appears to us that the miners who  want work at good pay, the business men  who want a revival of business, thegovern-  ment and the municipalities that want  revenue should unitedly make an effort  to to free tho men and restore to 'the  mining districts the much-boasted privileges, fair play and British liborty.  Up to June last the men were getting  $3.50 per day, the highest pay in the  world for such work, for what vyas not in  reality more than nine hours work; all  .Around.   Nothing has since  transpired  untrue.  It appears to us that carpenters,  clerks, masons and general laborers  must see tha.t they have been shabbily  treated by the government, when ex"  eluded from the eight-hour law, simply  because it was thought they had not as  many votes to give the political tricksters as .he-miners had.  We have said over and over again  that $3.50 is as low a wage   as good  miners can be expected to take in the  Slocan.   We have also said that eight  hours and  in fact six are  as long   as  men  should be expected   to work in  some tunnels; but this does not change  the fact that when tunnels are dry, well  ventilated' and  quite healthy for   10  hours, men should not be prevented by.  law from working them, when remuneration was made satisfactory.   What  is required is  the joint action of all  fair-minded-men (and there are hun-.  dreds of them among the miners)  to  secure such modifications of the law as  will leave hours of labor a matter of  contract ��������� between   men   and   owners.  The eight-hour law need  not be abolished, but the penal clauses expunged,  and all classes of labor placed on the  same footing.

Detonation or __3_plo_I__, Is Brought  About by Shoe...  1     "Gun cotton," said on ordnance, offloor  - _ few days ago, "is by far tho safest of nny  of tlio high ox-plosives. That la tho reason  __, Is chosen instead of tho nitroglycerin  preparations, which, although thoy will  produce rnoro poworful  effects, aro very  ���������..iangorous things to havo on shipboard.  They can bo exploded too oasily by tho ap-  ' plication of heat, by a shock and under  wmo conditions'' by spontaneous, coinbus-  " Uon.. But the gun cotton, so long us it is  _._p."wc_, is absolutely safo, and there is  do troublo about prosorving tho nocessary  Jegroe of moisture."  fprooisely tho sanib: opinion regarding  pun cotton as en explosivo for naval war-  _i.ro was expressed by the superintendent  of one of tho largest powdor manufaotur-  Ing firms.   ���������  _ "_?ofc only iu gun ootton absolutely inort  and harmless so long as it is wet," he  laid, 'but It does not nocessarily follow  that it will explodo even when dry. Of  Bourse it Is then much more liable to do  ������o, but if it is undi6turbod in any way a  . considerable quantity of it might remain  ijry without any acoldont. In our works  wo are extremely careful about tho way in  which wo . handle dry gun cotton, but  .hero is no need of any prooautions when  it Is wet. On shipboard "tho disks of dry  cotton which aro used as primers to detonate the wet aro always kept away from  tho inngazlno, either on deck or in ono of  tho cabins.  "Tho only danger from thorn would be  '���������to caso thoyw.rodropped w__il_hcii_]g'han-  'stled.   Tho rosult then woul6_.iot always���������  perljops not usually���������bo an explosion, but  you nover can toll with certainty.    One of  the disks might bo droppod half a dozen  1    Uinos and not explode, and tho next time  tmdor npparontly tho same conditions it  would go off;   As far ns heat Is conom-ned,  If the dry gun ootton is oxposed to a con-  ,   llnuod high temporaturo for a rlong time,  It   Is   likely   to   decomposo,  undergoing  .bemioul ohangos whioh generuto bout and  may go far enough to cause spontaneous  combustion.    But no su'oh  condition   is  possiblo on a ship,,booauso the gun cotton  Is always carried in tho torpedo heads and  Inspected  regularly to sco that it romaiua  wot.    Tho heads  nro praotically airtight,  but if uny evaporation is noticod tho cotton can  bo dampened again  by a regular  deans arranged for that purpose."  The prooess  by which  so common and  tiariiiless a substance as cotton is converted into a high explosivo is a comparatively  simple ono.    Euro raw cotton or ordinary  cotton wosto is stooped in a solution of one  part of nitrlo nold and  throe parts of sul-  fhiL-lQ; acid.    The nitrlo aoid is tho one  Which renders the .cotton  explosivo,, the  '   prosonoo of the sulphuric  boing required  only to absorb the;water, thus,allowing  the other acid  to combine more readily  ,   with  the nearly puro cellulose of  whioh  ootton   consists.    After   tho   cotton   has  soaked in the aolds for several hours it is  taken from tho pots and squeezed through  beavy rollors to extraot all the superfluous  aoid whioh it has not absorbed. - Then it  -is washed carefully and thoroughly, still  with the same objeot of removing the free  aoid. If any of this remained, its tondonoy  ' would be to onuso ohomlool changos In tho  gun ootton nnd deoomposo it. , Kormorly  this washing was the last prooess resorted  to for tbo removal of the free aoid, but a  (aw years ago Sir Frederiok Abel found  that:.tho. cells in the ootton fiber'so absorbed and rotalnod the' aoid' by capillary  attraotion that tho washing failed  to extract it entlroly. To remedy this and make  the gun cotton more puro, it  is now after  being washed passed through a mnohino  similar to that,which  grinds up tho rags  -n a paper mill.    Here it is orushod thoroughly and nfterwnrd wnshod again until  the last trace of froe acid  disappears and  tho cotton oomes out in tho form of a soft  white pulp, olosoly rosombling tho pulp o.  which paper is made.  ,  This conoludes  tho   process. of; actual  manufacture, and it now remains only to  , convert tho gun cotton into, tho most convenient form for tho use to which.it is to  bp put.   If it is to bo omployod.in making  -���������   powder, it is dried  and storod away in  .  pulverized form, but if it is designed for  filling torpedoes It must beooiriprossecl to  a certain, donslty and   molded into the  .baues which  will   best enable it to be  packod   into tho   torpedo heads.    These  shapes vary, acoprdlng to tho design of the  -oi-pcdooa   and  tho   method  of'packing.  Somotiinos they are disks and ebmetimoa  -ylindors, flat squnros or oubos. If uncom-  gn-ussed and dry, the gun ootton would.be  axtvemoly light, weighing  no more than  ordinary ootton  batting, but when  made  into the above forms it is compressed to ,-  tha donsity of an  equal amount of water.    Tho percentage of moisture remaining in tho gun ootton when  it is paoked  Into torpodoos varies  between 15 and SO.  So safo from explosion, unless dat'onatod,  is ;i brick of wot gun ootton  that it may  be placed upon hot coals. As tho moistiiro  dries off from tha outsido tho ootton flakos  off and burns, up quietly.    Porfootly dry  gun  cotton, when  confined  in  a strong  ease, will oxplodo with ( great vlolenco if  axposed to a temporaturo of about 830 degrees-F.'  . Detonation, or the firing of explosives by  totenso shook, is n modern method, for  until 80 years ago the application of heat  was always used to bring about an explo-  ,' sipn. It has now boon'discovered that de-  ' tonatlon produces a n_qi. poworful offoot  than explosion by moans of heat. In detonating tho wet gun cotton in the torpedo  it-arts tho primer of dry gun cotton which  _s usod weighs only n pound or thereabout.  It Is placed in oon tact with the wot mass,  which in d. Whitehead torpodo consist-  usually of about' 850 pounds. Then, by  lueans of a fuso and fulininato of moroury  cap, aflame is shot through tho disk of  airy gun cotton. This explodos. instantly,  and With it.tho entire mass of tho wet cotton, producing tromondous results.���������New  ���������_i_r__ Tribune.  Bids'!

' Thoy had returned earlier than was  expected, and there was no dinner lor  thein, but they sat down very contentedly to tea, and, beyond a polite  greeting to Eva, neither of the men  took much notice of hor.  .When ho had nearly finished his  meal Mr. Longford did ask the gi'_v  what kind o������ a journey  sho had  had,  small busy bee in tho idle hivo worked wonders.  Industry became tho order of the  day, and, consequently, Bell was not  far wrong when she said that Eva,  from the first hour of. her arrival, had  brought good luck into tho house.  Perhaps the members of tho family  whom Eva seemed to influence lesa  than any other was Conrad Longford,  He    was  a somewhat  This  letter   acted   as  an   additional-"one moment tho artist's daughter look-  .._.._ _-���������  -_ _  ���������-        --    .. ,   .,  -1 the only  son.  and  a few    trifling  questions  of   thoj foo!ish   cmpty-headed young man, who  kind,  but his son was_ quite absorbed   Relieved himsel  jmself to bo a born genius;  iie had secret aspirations of becoming  tho acknowledged leador of a new  school of taste audi of art, and having  judiciously commenced by going into  raptures over the eccentric daubs of  i certain unappreciated brothers of tho  in flirting with tho widow and doing  justico to a particularly juicy steak.

Bul when tea wa_ over, and tho rost  of  the parly  had    adjourned to     the  drawing-room, Barbara took Eva's arm  and said, in a low, tone:  "Let us two have a chat together,"  and so saying she led her into the  studio.  "She has fallen into Bab's clutches,"  Bpughed pell, with a glance at he.,  eldest sister, "and Bab will make her  as confirmed a blue-stocking as herself.',*  "All the bettor for her," replied Ale-  thea, discontendedly ; "I wish I had  g'oue in for hard work when I was  younger."   , <  "1 wish you'd make haste and get  married," pouted tho younger girl. "I  want to have long dresses and to give  up looking like a child, and ma says  I can't till you go off; she doesn't  want to have three grown-up daughters on her hands at once."  1 "1 am afraid I shan't hurry for the  sako of the length ol your dresses,"  was tho irritated retort.  "No, you'll hurry for your own sake,  if you hurry for anything, for feur you  should be left on the shelf ; and 1 really wonder you haven't succeeded, Thea;  with adulation himself. A mutual  adulation clique having thus been  started, tho members of it talked so  loudly and so incessantly, and seemed  so firmly to helieve tho rubbish they  expounded, that the world at largo began to be doubtful of its own judgment and a great number of easy-going people really accepted the members of this noisy coterie at their own  valuation.  Concord tried.to enlist Eva in the  train of his admirers, and he talked  a great deal of art nonsense, at first  (o wondering and then to wholly un-  appreeiative ears. And when he at  last realized that all his efforts were  in vain, he gave her up, and sometimes  rudely  ignored her.  Not that this in the least degree  troubled Eva. Conard Longford, with  his lank yellow hair flung back from  his prominent but empty-looking forehead, with his colorless, sunken, unhealthy countenance, with his lim.p  mustache and washed-out gray-blue  eyes, might be interesting to some people, but when Eva compared that faco  with one that had ever looked kindly  upon her, and contrasted that limp,  _rre-.o!r_te and y|et self-satisfied appearance, with a figure that was as  manly as the heart of its possessor was  ��������� ��������� _ . _    I I. lilt* 1-.J.J        __ _.       _1_T^    il_Ul   _.      -S_L_     _._*L_       J_, w __ M s- w ���������-* -~- * ������������������    --������_  you re    ever  so  much   better   looking,     w       h    had        uito litLlo smiie  to  _- V___ v.

But that  is , this made lutle dif������crence to our hero-  herself, and went on with her work altogether unmoved by nn3". want of  courtesy on the part of such an inflated bag of conceit.  Three months after Eva's arrival- in  Gower St. Alethea became Mrs. Duncan,  and Bell  blossomed out  into  Dr. Duncan's knock.'  The flush on .Methea's face deepened,  as a few minutes later a short, consequential-looking man came into tho  room.  Mrs. Longford received him graciously, and Mrs. Harding would have  transferred her attentions from Conrad to himself had he shown the least  inclination to step into that young  man's shoes.  Bul he did nothing of tho kind, he  came with a very different purpose in  his mind from that, and at length,  seising his opportunity, ho asked Alethea if she would not take him into  the back drawing-room and give him  some music.  "Yes, I will have the gas lighted,"  she replied quietly.  "Wo can leave tho doors open    and  ine, for it was with Barbara that she  ! attended the art schools in connection  ! with   University   College,   and   it   was  I Barbara who went  with her to  draw  ! in the sculpture  galleries of the Brit-  . ish Museum,    and    who guarded    her  ; from imperlinent atrentions from the  [ opposite  sex,  as   well   as  from   unde-  ! slrablo acquaintances of hor own.  And so time went on, and Eva saw  nothing of   Mrs. Westbrook! or of her  son.  Not once during the London season  had the proud mistress of the Grange  been to see hor, and not once in that  time had she invited the girl to visit  her.  On her return to the Grange she  wrote a brief little note to Eva, telling her to be a good girl and to work  hard.      But  she  showed  no  curiosity  do without the gas," he said, eagerly;   abou't  her comf0rt   or happiness,   and  I always like the twilight. np.vn.r    even  asked   a question    about  iways like the twilight  "Without anoiher word, tho girl led  tho way.

She had no intention of being cold or unfeeling, and to those  immediately around her she was invariably kind ; but she was .unsympathetic, and very apt to forget those  who were not actually under her eyes;  and, to do ber justice, it may be admitted she had privately received from  ihe rector, to whom Mrs. Longford often wrote, a glowing account, not only  was coming, but she was in no wise  agitated; it seemed to her then and  aiterward that sho had never been  calmer in her life.

Dr. Duncan and  Thea   are going  to  be  married.'   '  '. CHAPTERl VI.  Eva's life with the Longfords was  by no means unpleasant, neither wus  it very eventful. They were.a clever,  idle family. Barbara being, perhaps,  the most stupid and certainly tho  ��������� most industrious among them. Had  she_been so minded, Eva might just  have dabbled in art, and havo spent  her time pleasantly in visiting exhibitions and galleries and museums during thc day and in participating in  social gatherings and dramatic .-.ad  musical entertainments in the evening.  But though, with the natural love of  ! youth for indolence and excitement,  she would have enjoyed this kind of  life, had life, with her been only a  qjueslian of e_ijoy_nont, she felt it  would be dishonest to the friends who  were paying for .her education and advancement if she relaxed in the least  . dergeo from the course of study and  hard work that she knew should rightly foe her-portion.  /.The thorns of her life were not rose  leaves, and to try-to treat them as  Buch would only be to drive them more  deeply into her sensitive feet. So she  -worked hard, early and late, shaming  Mr. Longford himself into devoting  more time than usual to his easel, and  making him often conquer the fits of  ennui and indoliance that so often attacked Slim.  At one time he used to say and to  .J>elievo that he drew inspiration from  :__ls hour., of idleness, but though this  might ouce have- been true, idleness  and aisnlessness had grown upon him  until i. was no longer so.  How_.7<Jr, a change for the better set  In  now:.     Tie  presence    of  this   one  ing inquiries of the girl herself  ���������If Ernest Westbrook had not seen  that unfortunate portrait of himself,  and had not been so near proposing to  the producer and possessor oi it, simple good nature would have induced  him to call at Gower street and take  Eva and one of the girls to see some  of the shows of the great city, or drive  them down to the Crystal Palace, or  something of the kind.  Put having so very nearly compromised himself once, he thought discretion would be tlie better part of valor,  and so prudently kept out of danger.  Christmas approached, and Eva hoped,  ���������oh 1 so anxiously, that an invitation  would come for her to spend a week  or two at Westbrook Grange. But  no such invitation was sent to her.  ���������Mrs. Westbrook had taken it into  her head that she had made a mistake  in ever receiving the girl as her guest.  It lifted her out of her actual rank and  condition of life, and that, too, at a  critical ago, when sho was not. young  enough to be unconscious and unap-  preciativ.o of the advantages of  wealth, and yet not old enough to realize that, though the, difference between herself and her patrons might  bo ignored for the time, it always existed. As it was, Mrs. West brook  feared, she had made .the.girl restless  and discontented by her one piece of  injudicious kindness, and, to a certain  extent, she was right.  If Eva had never been invited to the  Grange and treated as an equal, she  certainly would not have hoped to be  asked there at Christmas; nor would  she have, felt so unutterably miserable  when not the least notice was taken  of her. But the new year brought its  compensations; with it a kind letter  came from .Mrs:-Westbrook, accompanied by a new year's gift from herself  and  another  from   her  son.  "The watch is ray present to you,  and the chain is from Ernest," the letter ran. " We are both very much  pleased at the progress you are making, and, with the good reports we hear  of you. Work hard, my dear Eva, and  prove to me that I was not mistaken  in you."  spur to tho girl, though it likewise  dispelled many illusions. Westbrook  Grange must not bo thought of, or re  jgardod as her homo; she must make  a home for herself; she badj no certainty of ever walking through the dear  old grounds again. Her course was  onward, and there was no returning;  and that bright afternoon which she  had spent , with Ernest Westbrook  might be treasured ux> in her memory,  but would, never be repeated.  Accepting this destiny cheerfully, if  not very joyfully, Eva worked harder  than ever. Early and'late, with never-ceasing assiduity, sho devoted herself to her art, and as timo passed on  she won her reward.  Trizo after prize came to her share.  At ono exhibition after another her  pictures were hung���������in some cases they  wore sold; and when sho had been  an inmate of the Longfords' house for  three years sho had the intonse satisfaction of being ablo to writo to Mrs.  Westbrook to assure her of her great  gratitude, and inform her that she  need no longer trespass upon her liberality, as she was now in a position  to provide for herself.  This letter did not reach Mrs. Westbrook for a week or two, for sho happened to be on tho Continent at the  timo it. was written. However, Eva arranged with the Longfords to remain  with them.  Romance had not visited her during these three years, and love had  not knocked at hor door. At least, if  Cupid had .been so unwise, sho had not  heeded him; and, here she is at twenty, talented, exceedingly pretty, and,  she believes, heart whole.  It is thus that wo find her a month  after tho letter to Mrs. Westbrook  had been written, and this evening  she has promised to accompany Mrs.  Longford and Barbara to the annual  conversazione at University  College.  The weather is very hot, and tho  days 'are long, and Eva works away  earnestly and forgets the flight of  time, until _5ho is disturbed by; the entrance of Mrs. Longford, who somewhat impatiently declares that she  ought to bo dressed and ready to  start.  " 1 won't ibe long," Eva replies, with  a smile, and half an hour later she is  standing in the drawing room ready  to  go.  Very unlike is sho now to the poorly-clad girl who looked out with admiring wonder upon Ernest Westbrook as he plays on the lawn with  his dogs that first morning at Westbrook Grange long ago; still less is  she like the child who astonished,her  girlish companions by calmly announcing her intention of becoming a lady  The oval face, the clear, dark eyes,  and the glossy hair are the same; so,  also is the creamy tint of her complexion ; but she has grown tall, her figure has developed in dignity and grace  and there is moro than mere beauty  of form and color in her countenance.  Her dress this evening adds not a little to the effeot of her charms. It is  of the pale greenish blue���������a heavy,  costly silk, with a rich bloom upon it;  and yet it is both plain and simple,  and it1 fits the curve of hor undulating  form without a crease, and falls in a  long, graceful train behind her.  Somo lilies in her hair and bosom  complete the costume, which, like her  own style of beauty, is almost severe  in its grand simplicity.  " You do look nice," exclaimed Barbara Longford enthusiastically ; " I  wish mamma had bought me a dress  like yours."  " You would have looked a fright in  it, my! dear," here interposed hor mother, calmly. " Now you and Eva are a  contrast, but if you were dressed like  her you would be but a bad imitation."  ' "The mater is .complimentary td me,  isn't she?" laughed Barbara, good-naturedly ; " but I don't care, I feel on  very good .terms with myself, and this  rose-colored silk with black velvet, isn't  unbecoming, though it's neither classic, artistic nor severe. But now we  are off. I mean to make a conquest  to-night; my ridiculous sisters make  a point of speaking to me as though  I wera preordained to be an old maid."  " Only make a conquest of some one  worth having," remarked her mother,  P'rudently.  " I need not give the same advice  to Eva," she added,' significantly.  Eva took no notice of this, remark.  It had dawned.upon her mind of late  that Mrs. Longford was anxious to pro  mote a match between herself and Conrad, and our heroine had never missed an opportunity of trying to extinguish the idea.  Conrad would never do anything for  himself, his mother thought, and therefore it was very desirable that he  should marry a wife who could supply  his  deficiencies.  But, meanwhile, our party have been  driven the. short distance which intervenes between Mr. Longford's house  and the University College. The ladier  ascended the staircase, and having been  received by two members of the council, passed on into the crowded rooms  It was like coming among old friends  '���������like the breaking up party of a school;  and Eva and Barbara shook hands with  one acquaintance, chatted with another, and our heroine found herself as  pleasantly and comfortably at herea.se  as though she were in her own painting room.  But Eva attracted much attention  this evening. The fame of her talent  and unusual success had been whispered about among less fortunate1 artists.  Professors had heard of her, and those  who did riot know her personally, eagerly asked tto be introduced, for learned professors, old or young, are rarely proof against .the combined attractions of talent and beauty.  So Eva found herself greatly sought  after on this occasion, and she* was not  sorry at length to get a seat in a corner near some rare plants and flowers,  and there, Half screened from observation, to sit and watch the brilliantly-  dressed and constantly-moving throng  before her.  One of the professors, a young German, had found her out, and was talking art and sentiment combined when  Barbara.  T.on_.ford   ioined   them.     For  ed reproachfully; at our heroine, for Dr,  Scherer was a man whose attention she  would have liked' to monopolize. "But  Eva had evidently little care for the  handsome doctor, and when he volunteered to' take her to another part of  the building |to show,her some curiosities, she pleaded fatigue and suggested that Barbara sould go with him instead. As Barbara clearly approved of  the suggestion, there was no loophole  of escape for the professor, so ho led  off the delighted girl, while Eva congratulated herself upon being " once  more left alone.  It was only for a few seconds, however. A group of young men, whose  peculiar style of hair and collar proclaimed them as embryo artists,.strolled in her direction, and ono of them,  who had never seen her beforo, immediately went into raptures of admiration.  " Who is she ? ' Who can toll me .  Who can introduce me ?" asked this  Individual, in low but impassioned  tones, of his companions.   -  They, failed to see the absurdity of  his behavior; each one of them would  have acted in precisely tho same way  if the idea had happened to outer his  ridiculous brain, and each would have  expected the samo respectful sympa  thy from .the rest which they all willingly accorded to tho present performer.  .

Mrs.  Doxtater has passed through   a   mora  than usually  trying illness, and as it  was said she   ascribed  her cure to the  use of Dr. Williams'   Pink Pills, a r<&  porter of tho Tribune was sent to investigate  the    case.   It   appears   that  Mrs. Doxtater's illness dates from the  birth  of   a child   on   Fob.    15th,. 1899,  when  the attending  physicians found  it necessary- to administer 'chloroform.  Tho shock was  greater than she could  stand   and    the      result   was   partial  paralysis,  during  which'  her  life was  despaired of.   Mrs..Doxtater gives  the  particulars  as  follows:���������"Previous   to  the  birth  of   my   child I had  enjoyed  very   good  health,    but  following this-  my  health gave  way entirely.   I   was  in bed for over a month, and had two-  doctors  attending  me.   I was  so  weak  that     I     could     not     turn     myself  in     bed    and     had     to     be     moved  like   a    child.      The     little    nourishment  I took had  to bo    administered  by  ray friends.       During  this time'I  suffered  great  pain  especially  in tho  hip joints, and ono sdie was paralyzed  from the shoulder to    the foot.    . Tho  doctors could not    tell   mo   what my,  trouble    was    aud the  medicine  they,  gave did me no good.   I became  despondent  and thought  I would   surely  die.   I got into a highly nervous condition and sleep was almost   impossible!  Just  as I   would  fall asleep I would  start up as though' in a fright:     This  was the start of affairs when a friend  advised me to try, Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills and  I can never tell how thankful' I   am    that  I   took that    advice.  After I had used the third box I was  ablo to. leave my bed and move around  the house a little.     By th etime I had  used six boxes I had gained greatly in  strength and was ablo to do my own  housework.     I could    eat  my    moals  with relish.   I sleep and; am still constantly    gaining  ni    strength.        My  friends wore surprised  at  my   speedy,  recovery after beginning the uso of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills,  and    I    believe   .  that but for them I would not be alive  to-day.   I will be glad if my testimony  is the means of pointing to some other  sufferer the road to health.  People who are run down, weak or  nervous., will find renewed hoalth and  strength through the fair use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. They enrichl'  and build up the blood and stimulate  tired and jaded nerves. Substitutes  eh-ould always be refused as thoy never cured anyone. The genuine pills  may be had from all dealers in ���������  medicine, or from the Dr. Williams'  Medicino Co., Brockville, Ont., at 50o  a box or six boxes for ������2.50.  A WISE GIBL.  It was in the tram car, and two  girls were talking of what they read.  Oh, I choose a novel easily enough,  one said. I go to the circulating lib-*  rary and look at' the last' chapters.

The life of the Russian soldier is a  hard one, and the bondage of compulsory service weighs cruelly, upon tho  peasants throughout the tsar's dominions. Attempts to escape enlistment  aro made continually, but tho simple-  minded peasant is no match for ' the  alert recruiting officer.  At a recruiting station in eastern  Russia a peasant pleaded deafness and  would not answer any question put to-  him.  " You can go home," said the examining surgeon, in a very low voico, and  the man at once started for the door.  The shout of the surgeon brought him  back, however, and ho was informed  that he had successfully passed tho  medical examination.  Here is another story of an unwilling recruit. Ho was a big strapping-  fellow, possessing the strength of a  Hercules; buf he, declared that the index and middle fingers on his right,  hand were joined together and could  not be taken  apart.  The appearance; of the fingers did not  indicate, however, that such was the  fact, and the examining surgeons, who  were strong men.themselves, tried.with  all'the strength thay possessed to separate the two fingers, and after a great  deal of exertion gave up in disgust. At  last a clever thought struck one of  them.     , ,    ���������  "Tell me," said the surgeon, "how  were your fingers before ? Were they  always like this." :  "This way," replied the unsuspecting young peasant, and ho opened his  fingers as easily as anybody else. He  was astonished at the laughter his act  evoked. The surgeons did not attempt  to examine him  further; he passed.  ,    THEIR COMBINED  AGES.  I'd let you go, Millie, said her mother, only I'm afraid it's merely a party  of giddy young peorle.  .You can judge of that, mamma,  replied  Millie, when I tell  you  that tho-.���������  combined age of the five of us is 170.  It turned out afterwards, however,  that the age of the grandmother,.  Whom they took along as a chaperon,  was 96. 7  A CLOSE IMITATION.

The very  number of titled people exposed to  _hargo_i of forgery has apparently ren-  aered this crime fashionable.  The Ambassador's daughter for  whom a warrant has been issued is  Mrs. Kingscote, who a year ago was  doing >the honors of her father's embassy at Madrid, where he was representing both England and'the United  States. Among her victims are Lord  Byron and Lord Burton, the latter proprietor of the great Bass brewery. She  has been already taxed publicly by Sir  George Lewis, Lord Burton's lawyer,  with having made a fraudulent use of  his client's name.  A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO  the son of Lord Haldoii,' destined to oo-  cupy his father's seat in "iho House of  Lords, confessed during a civil suit  that ho had forged the name of his  wealthy mother to a promissory note.

Lord William Nevil, son of the Marquis of Abergavenny, is undergoing a  rive-years' term of penal servitude for  having forged the namo of his friend,  Oapt, Clay to a promissory note. Only  -four years ago, Dr. Collins, medical officer of the Horse Guards, and the most  fashionable ladies' physician in London, was tried for forging tho name of  a comrade,  the rich Capt. Selwyn.

While on Ji's way to Vienna with  his fauier Baron Nicholas Fialh, a  young man of ,20, took advantage of  the few minutes stay, by the train at  Komoui to go into the restaurant to.  buy. cigaiettes. iThere an officer, one  of two who sat a,t a table with a number ol women, sa;d to him :"Reniove  ypur hat. or I will knock it off your  he,id." Baron Fiath replied that he  was in a puh'.io place, in which it was  nor customary to uncover.

At a Conservative meeting Friday  evening week, F. L. Christie, barrister,  was chosen the Sandon delegate to the  Provincial convention at New Westminster on the Gth, but as he was unable to attend Mayor Pitts was appointed in his stead.  The entire staff of the Last Chance  was let out on Wednesday, and the  men ail came to the city on Thursday,  'ihe management naturally feel that  when the men will go to Ainsworth,  - Nelson, lio.sland and elsewhere and  work for ^3.00 they ought to do it here  where the rock is soft.  The i.ovelstoke Herald, that is a  great admirer of the eiglit-honr law,  says: "Any law that prevents a man  lrom doubling his day's earnings, if he  wants tu, is simply tunned in a spirit  of paternal tyranny." lhe Review 13  claused as, an opponent of thc law, and  yet these arc our sentiments exactly.  Mr. Harris has now in his office several samples of a beauliiul electric  contrivance for mines. They consist  of tubes an inch and a half in diameter  and of various lengths from a foot up  naving a glu.s iu one end. Thoy aro  operated by a thumb spring and throw  an instantaneous jet of strong electric  light.  The question at issue in tho Slocan  is simply this: The law has cut the  working hours from ten, the.late custom, to eight. The minors say they  want ������3,50 for the eight-hour day, whiie  they Were formerly satisfied with it ior  the ten. The owners in turn- say they  will n0t pay it as the changed conditions were never necessary for the  country's welfare. Is thereto way of  enoctiug a compromise satisfactory to  both? ���������'��������� _.

A chimney blaze at the Ivanhoe at  an early hour Wednesday morning,  called out the fire brigade and many  citizens, but their services were not  really required.  Shiloh's Consumption Cure cures  where others fail. It is the leading  Cough Cure, and no home should be  without it. Pleasant to take and goes  right to the spot. Sold by McQueen the  JJruggist.  Mr. E. P.Bremner gets up some well-  written articles on unions, and quite  moderate in tone withal, as we understand it, in the Slocan there is no  objection to unions. The question is  rather, what should they do and what  should they leave alone ?  There are cigars and cigars, but if  you really want a good healthy smoke,  of a cigar that will not rob your purse,  you will use the "Interior" or "La  Morcna" manufactured by the Inland  Cigar Manufacturing"Co. of Kamloops.  One trial carries conviction.
