An Okanagan Engineer is Badly Frightened by a Ghost.  As a rule the people of British Columbia are too matter of fact and too  busily engaged ;n the dovclopu.ent of  the resources of the province to be  bothered by ghosts. A story, however,  conies from the Okanogan, which, if  true, shows that even among mountains the ghost sometimes walks.  One day hist summer, a tramp .accompanied by a big dog appeared at  the house of Engineer Hoaro of the  steamer Aberdeen, which runs on  Okanagan lake, near Vernon, and was  given a glass of water. A short time  afterwards his dead body was found in  the mountains, and the coroner's jury  returned a verdict of death from natural causes. Mr. Hoaro now refuses  to live in the house any longer, as, according to tho Vancouver World, the  tramp's ghost has appeared to him several times at the identical spot where  he gave him the glass" of water. A  strange dog has also been seen at tho  same spot since. The idea of some of  the settlers is that the man was murdered and_ that the ghost has come  back to his last friend when, in the  flesh in order that an investigation  may be made.  Gommunicatlons.

Ladies and Gentlemen,���������It .is but  right and proper that I should offer  you some timely advice at this season  of the year. As times are very good,  you will doubtless?one and all, be buying more or less presents for the little  lolks; and, of course, you want to  know where to do the best with your  money. I have spent many sleepless  nights the past month solving the  problem for you. I have searched the  mails and smv every order that went  to the wholesale houses, and have examined the goods that have been  shipped in response thereto; and summing up I havo not the slightest hesitation in recommending 'Ciifl'e's Bookstore, Sandon, as the emporium for all  ���������parents, ohilclrcn and sweethearts; I  intend to make that establishment my  headquarters for the entire country  and you all know I am aii experienced  buyer.  I have to say that they bought  all  from the best houses in   Montreal and  Toronto,  very much  for cash getting  j heavy discounts,  thus enabling  thorn  1 to unersell all competitors.  Their stock is the most varied that  ever came to the west, and embraces  everything from a live-cent tin whistle-  to a fine rocking horse, or a magnificent sett to be presented by lovers. I  have my eyes especially on the lovers  who want to buy coaxing goods, and  must say that Clifl'e's have just the  right sort. 1 off- r this as parental advice and know you will, one and all, be  governed accordingly.  I therefore take leave of you for the  present., wishing ynu a Merry Xmas  and a Happy New Year.   '  Yours fur good goods and low pries,  SANTA GLAUS.

"The judiciary, with a fow honorable  exceptions, are merely the oppressors,  and legislation is necessary to reconstruct the courts. Injunctions, imprisonments, bayonets and bullets are  awaiting the men who take any decided stand against the encroachments  of capital."  General Master Workman Hicks, in  his annual report, took strong ground  in opposition to the anti-expansion  policy of President Gombers of the  American Federation of. Labor. "No  part of the territory where our nation's  blood was lost or the flag raised," said  Mr. Hicks, "should under any pretext  bo allowed to go out of our possession,  still we should not, under the guise of  humanity, either take for our own or  turn back to Spain any portion of the  scenes of our various battles, but make  them all free and independent.

You then say that it has been represented to Mr. Green that Mr. Thompson voted and worked against him.  That he worked against Mr. Green Mr.  Thompson denies absolutely, and his  friends believe hia word. That he  voted against him is probabie. That  he should be punished for voting according to his conscience, is a thing  not to be endured by anyone who cares  for liberty.  You then saj ,"as Mr. Thompson was  never appointed recorder lie was never  dismissed " Who said he was dismissed from the Itecordcrahip? My  resolution said he was dismissed from  office, viz., from a salaried clerkship in  the civil service which he held for two  years.  You ask mo the question, should I  in Mr. Green's shoes have acted differently ? Yes, certainly. In the first  place, I should not have recommended  any new appointment at all, because I  consider that Mr. Sproat, with a clerk,  could easily do all the duties of Gold  Commissioner and Mining Recorder,  especially in winter. In the second  place, were I in Mr. Green's shoes 1  should consider only one thing, the  welfare of the people. I believe it is  for the welfare of the people that civil  servants should be secure in their  offices, and be prompted by merit. I  believe that it is for the welfare of the  people that, when an office falls vacant,  a man should be aopointcd who has  already had a good training in the  work. I believe it is for the welfare of  the people that there should be a free  ballot and free speech. For these reasons-I should, in Mr. Green's shoes,  have recommended Mr. Thompson, bc-  casue he had iicen two years in the  office, 'and was perfectly conversant  with all the duties of Mining Recorder  there.  Your obedient servant,  R. B. Kerr.  New Dc-.ver, B.C., Nov. 23, '9S.  The Rambler now has 30 men at  work.  The Washington has 14 men at work  for the winter.  The Idaho has put up a new bunk,  house to accommodate 18 men.  Tho Vancouver mine has several  cars of ore ready for shipment.  The Idaho, Three Forks, shipped 60  tons of ore the week ending 20th inst.  The Native Silver Bell nhipped two  cars of ore at McGuigan the past  week.  The White Sparrow, at Slocan City,  assays ������50 in gold from surface collections.  The Fisher Maiden has made a now  strike which shows 295 oz. of silver  and 50 per cent. lead.  The Marion, at Now Denver, has  commenced to ship. From indications this will turn out to be a fine  property.  Cliff Seal, in speaking of the Wakefield mine, where he has been wording  for a few months, says it is a large  concern, and has now nearly 20 cars of  ore ready for rawhiding.  The Reco Co. are perfecting arrangements on the Cody branch of tlie K. &.  S.for handling the ore there to be raw-  hided down this winter. The probabilities aro that the Reco's shipments  will bo larger than ever before; but on  account of the exceedingly high grade  of ore in the mine, much shipping  need not be done to make a big pile of  money.  It appears from Mr. Kcir's letter  above that we were misinformed as to  Mr. 'Thompson's appointment. AVc  wore advised that Mr. Soroat selected  him as assistant, and the government  paid his salary. There is, however,  one thing wo do know, and that is the  government says the Recordership at  New Denver was vacant when Mr.  Sproat received the appointment of  Gold Commissioner. Wc are confident  Mr. Grei-n is as liberal as any man can  be. as to the license of government  officials in elections. Wc know that  if Mr. Thompson was Recorder and  considered such by the government.  Mr. Green would bo the last man  to ask for his dismissal for voting  against him merely. Ho was assured  by residents of New Denver, whose  word he has every reason to believe,  that Mr. Thompson not only voted but  worked against him; there was nothing  more natural under the circumstances  than that he should, when advised by  the government that the Recordership  was vacant, recommend a supporter  for the vacancy. Mr. Kerr seems to  think that Mr. Sproat did not cease  to be Recorder wh'en appointed Gold  Commissioner, but the government  says he did, and wc leave the point between thorn.  We quite agree with our correspondent that if promotions were the order  in Canada, it would be much better all  around, but as they are' not observed  in any portion of the country, no serious blame can be attached to either  Mr. Green or the government for following the. rule of parties in the country.���������f Ed.

To tho Editor of the Mining Review :  Sir,���������From your article of Nov. 19,  on the dismissal ol Robert Thompson  from the Government office in New  Denver, it. is clear that yeu havo been  misinformed as to some of the facts.  You say that "Mr. Sproat, and not  the government, engaged Mr. Thompson as assistant." I am authorized by  Mr. Sproat to state that such is not the  case. Mr. Thompson was employed  ditectly by the government, and paid  a monthly salary by them for two  years. .-������������������>-.',.  You then state that "a few months  ago, Mr. Sproat was appointed Gold  Commissioner, and, the recordership,  in so far as government recognition  was concerned, became vacant." That  is arnistako. First, Mr. Sproat did not  cease to be Mining Recorder when he  became. Gold Commissioner. Second, I  the Gold Commissioner has all tho  powers of Mining Recorder, even when  not expressly appointed as such.  Third, the duties of both offices are  usually discharged by one man. Even  at Esssland, Mr. Kirkup, with" the aid  of i, clerks,   discharges   the  combined  PERSONAL   MENTION.  Notice has been given that at the  coming session of the legislature an  application will be made for the incorporation of a. new Church of. England  diocese of Kootenay, as soon as ������40,000  is raised as a capital endowment and  an annual stipend for a Bishop, of  $2,000., The bishop's seat' will most  likely be in Nelson as the centre:of. the-  district.

Captain Windlass, not liking the _ob  a bit, but pressing his teeth together  and going at it with all the resolution  of a true Briton, turned the handle o������  ihe door and entered the cabin.

"I'm afraid I am going to give you  n fright, sir," said tho captain sternly, bending his brows on the unhappy  Fex, und transfixing him with a  TRhadamanthine stare. "You came on  board, sir, and took this cabin under  the name of FcxV"  "I did," says Mr. Fex, quailing before the captain's eye, but not for the  reason the spectators imagined.

"I thought so." said the captain, talcing off his cap and wiping his beaded  brow in triumph at the admission he  Had extracted. He sat down on'tne  sofa, his great knees coming up to a  line with his watch-pocket, and laid  his huge arm on the top of tho lockoi  beside him. ,.       ,  "Now, sir," he said, "be cautious 1  You are oui oiisonor.

How til j Trouble Bcains,  nnd How a Person Altnckril Should be Treated  Leckhaw, or tetanus, Is a disease  which, fortunately, is more read aLout  than seen; yet it is not very rare, at  least, in Us mild form. It occurs more  frequently in 'children than in older  people, and oftoner in boys than in  girls; but 1 his is probably ,only because  boys are moie liable lo cut and scratch  themselves, for it is after such injures thai  lockjaw u.ualiy occurs.  Tho disease is more common in some  countries than in others, England being ono of the eouuliies, and Cuba another, in which U prevails to a much  greater extent than in this country.  Here, too, some slates and some portions of states have an unenviable preeminence  in this regard;  The trouble usually begins with a  stiffness and tendency to contraction  in the muscles which bring tho teeth  together, and with the progress of the  disease it becomes impossible lo open  the mouth���������hence the popular name,  "lockjaw." The other muscles of the  face soon become affected in lhe same  way, and after them the mu=cles of  neck, the tiunk und the extremities.  According as'one or" another set of  muscles is tho strongest or most firmly contracted, tho arms and legs will  be tin own into constrained po.-itions,  and tho body will bo bent forward, or  backward, or to one side.  When these spasms���������which aro us-  uilly painful���������are very severe and recur frequently or even become continuous, tetanus is usally' fatal. For-  lunately, however, this is the le_s common form of the disease, in the usual  milder variety the spasms are less  sovero and less frequent, and soon,  with proper care, begin to become less  and U-sz. maiked until they finally  ceaso  entirely.  Lockjaw is caused by a poison excreted by a microbe which is found in  the soil, especially in that near stables  and in manure heaps.  This poiton. which is somewhat like  strychnine in its effects, is absorbed into the'system thiough a wound made  with a rusty nail or other dirty object,  or through a wound which has been  soiled with earth or bound up with a  dirty rag. Sometimes, especially in  tropical countries like Cuba, the disease comes on after a wetting or a  sudden chill, even when there is 110  wound of tho skin 1 o far as can be  seen, or il may follow insect bites.  A person with lockjaw mu>t be kept  perfectly quiet and shielded from anything thai may bring on a paroxysm,  such as a touch, a jolt of the bed, or  even a strong draught of air. lhe  treatment belongs entirely to the  physician, for tetanus is (00 serious a  malady and too rapid in its course to  permit of *iny experimenting Willi  domestic remedies. The fatal cases us-  u lly last only four or five day?, but  the milder forms may continue for two  weeks before recovery is complete.  IIPOYEEISSEE  BLOOD.

Cause of the IMHCoUrnllon nnd Tiotr H Mny  lie. Ti-cHtfd.  It is a curious fact that the possessor of a black eye^is always bitterly  ashamed of his ornament, yet in ninety-nine cases out of a hundiod it Is  purely the result of an accident; and  even if it is caused by tho fist of an  adversary, it at least goes to prove  lhat the sufferer faced his foe.  A black eye is simply 0 bruise, a  black-and-bluo spot, of the eyelids and  the parts underneath the orbit. All  these tissuos being very loose and  sponge-like in texture, the blood which  escapes beneath the skin in all cases of  bruising, and constitutes tho black-  tind-bliie mark, spreads vory widely,  and causes great disfigurement.  Sometimes,   if  the  injury  has    been  severe, there will be an escape of.blood  beneath    the membrane    covormg tho  eyeball; but the .eyeball itself usually  escapes damage, owing to its elasticity  and to the efficient nrotectiou afforded  by lhe. bony ring forming the edges of  the orbit. ��������� .   .

The  Financial Returns give all expedifuros  from' the' office of the Provincial  Treasurer���������that Is, all expenditures  made by tho province of Nova Scotia.  One lino reads: '  Jerome.    , ,   ?104:00  jFew, ii any, members of tho present  Legislature know what it means. They  only know that it has been there for  many years, and therefore some one is  receiving #10d every year, but who  and what "Jerome" is or why he  should receive anything they do not  know. The item was'there in the old  days before confederation���������before there  was any Dominion of Canada, and Nova  Beotia was a separate colony.  One day, forty years ago, the people living about the narrow strip of  rock and land on the Nova Scotia side  of the Bay of Fundy, known as Digby  Neck, observed  A SHIP ON THE-HORIZON.  Her movements wero unusual. She  .eemed to be aimlessly hovering about  the same place.

The  ��������� people called him "Jerome," becau>e  they thought some of the sounds ho  made with his voice :reseinbled that,  but except for this he has remained  for forty years a man without a'name,  [n time the poor peoplo of the village  felt they could no longer hear the burden of the waif's maintenance, and  they applied, to the authorities to relieve thein,of him. The Poor Commis-  - sioners of Digby county did not see  .why they should bear the load. He.  certainly was not a Digby county'inah.

As was announced in  our laet issue,  the miners of  this district   have resolved on forming n  union, which, if  properly managed, as we are "confident  it will be, will command the respect of  all sections   of   the   community.   In  Canada our industries are varied  by  provinces, no two of which are alike,  and in each the leading factor in the  production is entitled to especial attention from   all classes of the community.   In Manitoba and  the  territories the especial factor in the production of the country is the farmer,  and all classes feel that the legislation  and usages of the country should be to  ' do the former ample justice.   In this  country mining   is the back bone of  our production, and, as a consequence,  our legislation and usages ought to be  in the line of justice to the miner.   As  a matter of fact all that can bs done  for  the<miner is to award him proper  wages,   the   best   value   possible���������in  keeping with proper business methods  of the country���������for   his money,  and  fair treatment.   There arc exceptions  here   a.   everywhere,   but, generally  speaking, all these conditions are fairly well observed by all  who have relations with  the miners ;  but to ensure  their continuance under   all circuni-  etances, the miners have a duty to perform,   and  they intend to perform it  under   a  union.     A   union means   a  bonding together under legal recognition to carry out ccrlain   principles,  known   to be in  the   interest of the  unionand without  conflict in nny respect with any othor class of the community.  In a woid Lhe obj-c.'s oi their or ;in-  izatiun nre : To keep up proper wn^es,  to luck after th<; --ink mid ji.eny ul'  their calling, and in their asscmhii.s  to promote each other's welfare in all  other respects by social intercourse.  These objects are every one commendable, and in carrying them out to their  fullest extent, they will be supported  .by all classes of the community. We  are in a position to say that their  charter can bo secured within three  weeks, at a moderito cost. In the  meantime their officials can be selected and their '.constitution and bylaws drafted and adopted. They arc-  then an incorporated body in working  order.    \.      ,  Next;, we are confident, will follow  the selection of- a hall where suitable  books, papers, etc., will always be  available. This would, to an extent,  be a home for all, under all -circumstances, where they can spend an unemployed hour in friendly intercourse  with.their fellow miners. The accumulation of their fees will constitute a  fund out of which to help their needy,  provide for their sick and bury their  dead. No doubt, in time, an hospital  ' will come up for due consideration.  ,'" There will scarcely ever be less than  800 men employed, and doubtless 1,000  resident within a radius of four miles  of this city', and as time advances and  properties are developed the number  ���������will be increased. This will warrant a  very strong central organization here,  that in time may have brunches at all  important points in .the Slocan. We  congratulate tlie miners on this move,  and so long as they confine themselves  to these lines, without encroaching or  infringing on the rights of property  holders or other classes of the coin-  ..niunity, as wc aro .confident they will  ever be careful to avoid, they will havo  thu. sympatl-.y and support . of The  'Mining Kkview;  practical mining has now sufficiently  advanced in this country to warrant  the adoption of some permanent laws;  but to make thein equitable they must  be the suggestion of all three classes  of people interested in mining in the  country���������capitalists, property holders  and practical prospectors and miners.  No laws can fill the bill that are not  drafted as the result of  the deliberations of representatives of  all   three  classes.     Instead   thon   of  tinkering  with the present laws, we would  suggest that the government take steps to  get an expression of joint committees  of all   three classes as  to permanent  laws,   taking  from  the    present  one  all that is considered satisfactory.   It  is   reasonable   to   believe   that   laws  drawn  up   in this way will be  most  generally   accptable,   and,   therefore,  permanent in their nature.  >VEAK LUNGS.

Thousands of women daily achieve womanhood's supremest joy, only to meet, a  few days  or weeks  or  months   later, its  supremest  sorrow.

It acts directly  on the delicate and important organs that  bear the burdens of maternity and makes  them strong, healthy, vigorous and elastic.  It allays' inflammation, heals ulceration,  soothes pain and tones the tortured nerves.

not be quieted until a war between
England, the United States and Japan
on the one side, and Russia and Prance

McVey, Corbett's second, jumped into

etiquette, brought the fight to a close.
They weight Sharkey, l/'S lbs ; Corhett,

had the host of the fight, and the
referee so decided. Many were of the
opinion it was pre-arranged between
Corbett and McVey that the lnlter
should do as he did when he saw Cor-
b��tt getting tho worst, of il. to orcak up

Have tho ca.rpet-we.ivor arrange ih'  warp, dark red warp is most desirable,  in clusters of four threads, as close together as possible, with spaces of one  inch between the clusters. These are  handsome in all "hit-and-miss" r or  "Roman stripes"���������that is, each color  sewed and wound by itself, and woven  in stripes of irregular width;or ihey  may be combined, using the hit-and-  miss, which produces a neutral effect,  for the main portion of the curtain,  wilh stripes in rich dark colors lor  the dado. Thi striped ones give quite  an oiidntal aspect by inter-weaving an  occasional row of heavy tinsel, being  careful not to overdo it, or the effect  will be tawdry. Have the ends of Lhe  warp carefully tied and clipped; then  cut up from the bottom of each curtain  four inches, in the space between the  clusters of four threads, and ihe result  is a very novel and effective fringe. By  exercising judgment and taste in combining the colors, you will have a pair  of portieres, curtains or u couch cover  handsome enough for either city or  country house, warranted to outwear  the owner; and in these days of lavish  use of silk Ior shirt-waists, petticoats-,  linings, etc., not difficult to procuie;  A ball weighing one pound will make  one squaro yaid. Ihe oidin.uy h/nd-  ioouis will weave one yard and four inches wide.  There has been something of a revival of rag carpels, or, raiher, rag rugs;  woven oxuelly like the old-fashioned  rag c.upet, and at springs and seashore  last summer, the pieparation ot ihese  rags took the place uf the ubiquitous  "fancy work."  1 have seen some quite artistic small  rugs. One of lhe._e, lor u Delft room,  was entiieiy of white cotton rags, wilh  tha warp oi blue. Anoiher lose-eolor,  with black warp, this rose-color was  iruidc by dyeing white cottony rags  with Diamond dyes, and was intended  for a bedioum whi.h had pink draperies, and one of scarlet with black warp,  inade from a lot of ojd burning that  had been used for docoiaiing at a  church fair.  The while rugs oan be put into the  wash-tub when soiled. Diamond dyes  wi.l enable one t.o choose one's own  colors in either silk or cotton. 'lhe  soft ail-wool lags, cashmeres, h.niiel-  tas, flannvls, choosing rather darker  colors, and woven Iiko the above, are  an economical addition to a. bedroom,  saving the carpet in those much-used  spots in front of bureau and .wash-  stand.   ��������� ' '���������     ' ''.'.'���������  One lady of my acquaintance had  several old ingrain carpets thin and  ragged. She paid a colored woman a j  dollar and a half to out into strips half'  inch, wide, and had them woven with  dark-blue warp, which mingled with  1 thu warm reds, browns and yellows if  (he carpet equalled, in beauty of coloring, a- Turkish rug. ���������' The twenty  yards of carpeting cost her six doilars  and a half. Another one had a pair  of dark tan cheniile portieres with dull  red borders, which had pulled into  holes; these she had cut into strips,  and the three yards of carxiet made a  pretty rug for a narrow passage.  So do not sell to the rag-man for a  few pennies, what may, with a little  effort, be made into a thing of beauty  and a joy for, almost, ever.  g___a_i ara������J��������� mm ��������� i ii_m  Viw to cool and settle, then strain  hroatrh cloth, bottle and set aside to  ise.

One  teacupful  of  ���������his liquid to a toiler of water whitens  ,r-irm.nls that have grown yellow from  disuse.  HOW'TO REMOVE STAINS.  Tea and coffee usually readily yield  to : the purifying influence of boiling  water poured through the fabric; so,  too, do some fruit stains. An application of lemon juice nnd sail, with good  sun exposure, is an old and in many  instances an effective remedy. Grass  .stains usually can lie removed by dip-  ���������p'uit; i" a.'c.hoi. i'U'l an application of  a Iiitste made of cream of Inrtar wet up  with water will remove them when alcohol will not. So, too, cream of tartar and water will remove iron mold  spots, drying on the grass in the sun.  If ow application does not remove, repeat. Soaking in sour milkover night  will usually remove ink stains, while  tho, juice of a ripe tomato is useful in  removing stains from the hands. Kerosene will clean many .stains from oil  cloth, brass or copper. Surfaces that  would be marred by sand soaps can often be nicely cleaned with kerosene,  followed; by an application of'hot soap  suds. But my standby when all other  remedies fail to successfully remove  Kiting from white fabrics is javalle  water. It is easily made, and once used no housekeeper will be without it.  The formula is as follows: Four lbs  lii-ra.rbbnal.c- of soda, 1 lb chloride of  lirii'.', pour over the soda 1 gal, of boiling water, place over the fire and boil  15 minutes, then stir in the chloride  of liaie until thoroughly dissolved. Al-  nOUSEHOLD niNTS.  Few things are more displeasing to  wash thin cut glass. The crevices so  readily secrete dust where it is hard  lo get at. By washing tha wholo with  hot suds and scrubbing the cuttings  with a moderately stiff brush, however, then linking in vwiim water and  wiping dry with tissue paper, the work  will  bo done very satisfactorily.  Aro you ever annoyed by having your  ilvcr iipoons and forks in daily use  tarnish? If so, leave them in strong  borax water several hours, the water  being at boiling point, when they are  inserted.  After peeling onions, rub the hands  on a stick of celery, if you wish to  banish the smell of the former.  Don't be afraid of purchasing coffee  enough to last sK- months or a year.  Coffee when kept in a cool, dry place  improves with ape���������lhat is, if it has  not  been browned.  In mixing mustard for table use,  never add vinegar, since" this destroys  ils life and flavor. Use hot water for  moistening it, rather, having the water  at. the time of using only blood warm.  Remember that iron and polishw-  steel, when not in use may be kept  from rusting by wiping with a ololh  on which a littlo kerosene has been  poured.  Never pat and smooth down mnshed  potatoes. Doing so makes lhem heavy.  To renovate varnished paints, save  some tea leaves for a few days, sleep  lhem In a tin pail for half an hour,  ilK-n strain'through a sieve and use  the tea for cleansing Ihe paint. Owing  to the fact that the tea acts as a  strong dolorg.nl, it makes the paint  nearly equal to new in appearance.  Don't, however, make the mistake of  washing unvarnished paints with it.  In boiling catsup or pickles, boil (ho  corks, and while hot press them into  the bottles, which, on the corks .cooling, will bo lightly pealed, Utilize  lh_ (in foil from compressed yeast, or  anything else of a cleanly nature, for  covering the corks, and you have the  matter complete.  A kitchen, to be up to date, should  contain a small table about the height  of the range o'- stove, to serve as a  resting place for utensils when omelets  griddle calces and such like aie being  made���������not a plain I able, but a table  covered wit ta zinc.  If you would h.ivo a new broom last  well and at the same time be pleasant  to use, immerse it in boiling water,  leaving until quite cold, then thoroughly dry iL in the air. The truth is;  frequent moistening of a broom adds  to its usefulness, and also saves the  carpet.  Don't forget that one of the best contrivances for keeping knives, forks and  tablespoons in is a pocket tacked on  the pantry door. Make it of enamel  cloth, line with red canton-flannel and  stitch small divisions to' fit each article. Thus, "put up," .they will keep  bright and clean, for the cant on-flannel Will absorb all moisture that may  be lefl.on them;  To avoid any unpleasantness to the  eyes when peeling onions, while doing  it sit in a draft of air, as by! ah open  window-or door. If this is an impossibility, (hen hnld the knife, onion and  hands underwater.  If ever you are so unfortunate as to  have a very bad ink stain occur on a  carpet of very delicate colors, rub it  with buttermilk, and w-he'n the" sl;Viii  is almost effaced, wash the. place with  a cloth wrung out in boiling water  without. soap. This done, cover the  spot with a dry cloth, and so let it remain for a day, ,  '     _30UND  TO  WIN.  .    '     V ���������  The late Lord Glenely was fond of  telling the following 'story of Mr. La-  bouchere, father of the first Lord  .aimton, as illustrative-of the enterprise necessary to the success of tho  _><jor. but  clever  young  man;  As a. young man Labouchere was  employed in the great mercantile  house of Hope. When it came time to  marry having discreetly made his own  choice of ihe lady, he applied to Sir  Francis Baring for leave to pay his addresses to his'daughter. Sir, Francis  demurred, ns Labouchere, though a  rising young man,   bad no fortune.  "But if Hope takes me into partnership?"   said Labouchere.  "Oh yes, if Hope takes you into partnership''"    ..���������.'���������'���������-, ''.-'���������.  Labouchere than went to Hope, and  intimated his wish .for this arrangement.     Hope in his turn demurred.  ''But if I marry Baring's daughter?"  i said Labouchere. ; .  "Oh, if you marry Baring's daughr  ter���������" /  This was enough for Labouchere. He  concluded his wooing by marrying  Baring's daughter, whereupon he became a partner in  Hope's.  : WHERE-CHEiMISTRY FAILS.  .' Mrs. De Jones ��������� My baby spilled  about! a quart of ink on a lot of old  rags, and a drop or two got on my  best dress.; 'Have you any thing - that  will take ink out?

Tripler of the  liquifioation of air,' and tho wonderful uses to which it can be put. In  an interesting paper in Pearson's  Weekly, Mr. Tripler describes the uses  to which the new agent can be put,  and outlines tho probabilities of the  application.  "Liquid air," it seems, is obtained  by a process of great pressure, wherein  eight hundred cubic feet of ordinary  air becomes ono cubic foot of liquid,  and it is in this great concentration  that its potency lies. ILs temperature  is actually about 312 degrees below  zeiro.  FROZEN AND PULVERISED.'""  In its expansion as it >eturns to its  gaseous slate, lies a power of, the highest, efficiency, -easy to control, ready to  be harnessed and utilized! If a tumbler  be filled wilh the liquidt it boils vigorously, absorbing a portion of the heat  around it, and at the* end of half an  hour has completely disappeared, in-  distinguishably mingled wilh the air  above ic, fromi which it differs only in  its greater purity. The tumbler, meanwhile, baa become thickly coated with  frost. It has the appearance of pure  water, except that it shows a pale-blue  tint, which, intensifies as tho evaporation proceeds. There is no difficully  or danger in handling it, provided reasonable precaution is used, and tho  gases aro not "confined. It can be  ladled up wilh a tin cup, and poured  into almost any sort of dish, like so  much water. If you chance to drop  the cup, however, it will shatter like  thin glassware An oyster dipped for  a nipmenl in a bowl of the liquid becomes as coid as if it had remained  in a refrigerator for hours. Raw beefsteak may be frozen until it rings,  when struck, like apiece of bell-metal. Whilo in this condition it may be  broken in fragments with a hammer,  and pounded into powder. Butter, similarly treated, may be reduced io a  fine, dry dusty' fruit and; eggs may bo  pulvorised in the same manner. Wool,  under ordinary circumstances, will not  burn; it. merely scorches and crisps.and  gives off unpleasant odours. But when  saturated in liquid oxygen, at tho  touch of a match, it flashes up liko  so much gunpowder, and is gone in  a moment. A mass of foil treated in  the same m inner burns more like  dampened nunpowder, with a series of  spluttering flashes, but it also is completely consumed.  IRON' MELTED' IN ICE.  Air. Tripler describes an experiment  giving a contrast  of  extremes of cold  and boat which is without precedent.  Pouring some of the liquid into a  smooth glass tumbler, he says, I dip  tho -bottom into a vessel of water. A  thin casing of ice immediately forms  about it, but lit once begins to crack  with (he intense opld. By repeated  immersion, however, adding coat,after,  coat., . I presently get. a sort of ice'  cup, thick enough tc bear handling after the tumbler upon whfch it has been  moulded has been withdrawn. This  ice-cup 1' partially, fill with the liquid,  and wbp.n I.dip into it the end of a  steel. wire, to which a lighted match  is fastened, the'hard molal burns explosively, liko a-f.us_��������� with a brilliant  effusion of sparks, so that, the chilly]  crystal about ii: glows -like a/lamp. On j  inspecting the cup after this display,  of fireworks is ended you will find-thal  the sizzlingmclal'lias covered the bottom; with beads and pellets of steel���������  Ave have actually melted iron into  a c.rucibie of ice! ,ft remains to show  tho explosive power of this mysterious  liquid. I saturate, iri the azure-tinted  liquid a .wad ...of oily cotton -waste, and  place it. ia a steal tube of' great  strength,, open at both ends. When a  spark is applied���������which must be done j  from a safe distance���������tlie tube is rent  in .fragments. If the wad wftre first  wot with turpenline.the explosive force  would exceed (hat 'of gun cotton. This  compound is well suited for use in  shells or torpedoes, and might easily  be made a destructive agent of terrible efficiency in war; no thickness  of-armour-plate could resist its��������� ruthless.pnergy.. Moreover, there .would be  no risk in the! handling, as it is not  exploded by concussion. It can be dis-  chirgecl only by contact with'a spark;  1 ha whole effect is produced by rapid���������  practical ly instantaneous���������combustion!  ITS USES IN SURGERY.  Liquid air is no mere curiosity of  the laboratory and the lecture-room;  its possible uses are manifold and some  of thein are of incalculable importance. Doubtless the most obvious application is for purposes of refrigeraT  tion. Nothing can be imagined better  adapted for such use, since liquid.air  furnishes a clear, dry, cold, easily-de-  lfivered at any temperature' required.  With its aid, , the transportation of  ���������fresh meats, fruits, and the like, to  any distance, on either steamships or  by rail, becomes a simple matter. In  hotels and other large establishments,  the same motive power, which is used  for running the; lifts and driving "the  dynamos might be turned to account  for all kinds of refrigeration; in the  heat of suiiimsr it would bo no more  difficult to oeol the air of our apartments than  rr   now find  it to warm  thorn in winter���������nor would (here be  my deleterious gases produced, as by  combustion, requiring to be carried off  through pipes and fiues.' On the contrary, the incidental product would  be like the purest--and most bracing  mountain air. The-' possihilities in medicine aud surgery.,are numerous. By  means of this process, air, .absolutely  free from germs, could be furnished in  any amount; and if the stimulating effect of an excess of o.\ygen were desired, it could be had without trouble,  quite free from the impurities which  now often make' this gas objeclionable.  I'h��������� temperature of hospital wards, even in 'the tropics, could readily lie cooled to any degree prescribed by Ihe physicians in ch'irge; and by keeping the  air about yellow fever patients down  lo the frost point, Ihe nurses will be  perfectly protected against contagion  and the recovery of the patients themselves facilitated. Again, the cauterising cold which liquid air is capable  ot producing might be used in cases  of cancer with great advantage, since,  while it absolutely destroys the flesh  t.o which it is applied, its action is  perfectly under control, and can be  stopped in an instant.  HIGH. EXPLOSIVE AND MOTIVE  FORCE.  Its possible use as a high explosive  in war his already been adverted to.  Further, military authorities are already making enquiries as lo its application lo lho cooling of guns when  in action and there' is no obvious reason why il should not prove highly efficacious, and of groat value in their  way. Still more important, however,  will be its service as a motive force  on warships���������or, indeed, on any ships  It can be handled wilh perfect safety  in an ordinary engine, in tho saiue  manner as steam, but without requiring oppressive heat. Freed from the  neeessiiy of carrying an immense  weight, of coal, yel furnished with a  motor capable of producing any amount of power needed, vessels would  bo able to make voyages of any length  at, a speed equalling that of Lho swiftest torpedo boats, running at the rate  of forty to forty-five miles an hour.  And in submarine boats, the motor itself would supply all lho air required for breathing, abundant, cool, and  pure, instead of generating overpowering heat and stifling gases, as is the  case at present. It is also worth while  considering ils application in connection wilh the difficult problem of  aerial navigatiou, which would probably bo solved, since all that is now  wanted, practically, is a motor sufficiently light' and strong and safe. With  liquid air no fire would be needed���������the  heat of Lhe surrounding atmosphere  would be entirely adequate; and for  this reason, and because there would  be no moisture to effect them, the boilers could bo made of puper. Aluminium scarcely heavier than paper, yet  nearly equal to-copper in ductility,  could be'used for tlie coils and other  necessary  parts of  the mechanism.

The situation in naval circles in  England, says the London Daily Mail,  of a recent date, may bo summed ux>  by saying that work is simply going  on as usual, and lhat, though that is  so, ilu're is not the slightest chance  of our tars being caught napping.  A ruuitur that said that Naval Reserve men had been ordered to hold  Ihemselves in .readiness is quite unfounded, i  Enquiries prove that statements as  to bringing up sea-goiog ships in harbour to their fighting compliment  having been officially ordered at  Portsmouth ia mere gossip. The battleship Trafalgar, portuardship, is  (heonly one thete, to which such an  order  would apply.  In Portsmouth garrison no unusual  orders have been received, bUL it is  expected that unless matters calm  down within the next few days there  will bo a more or less complete mobilization of the. artillery units to man  ihe defences.  jSTaval men do nol believe that Franco  will be so unwise as lo force on hostilities; but that if she does we shall  be ready for her.

Naturally the gravest .interest is  -taken in the progress of events, but  Jack views matters with the utmost  nonchalance. Should there be war our  ships will put to sea manned by crews  who feel confident that they will be  able to achieve' the same r'osults as  did    the seamen of Nelson's day.

Nearly always in lhe run of a series1  of years, Ihe farmer meets wilh some  difficulties in any system of rotation  that'he may adopt. The section of  couniry in 'which the farmer has his-  farm, (he climate aud (he crops grown  have much to do with the rotations  most advisable for him to follow. In  sections where corn can be successfully, growri, clover will be equally successful, and these two should always  be. a part of the rotation. With these  a Uiii-dand even fourth crop'may come  in as the farmer desires. If clover,  wheat and earn are used, a three-year  rotation must be followed, allowing one,  year to each crop. This is propably as  short a rotation as can bo'successfully  used. If Timothy is sown with the  clover to occupy the land at the same  time, the clover and Timothy may be  allowed to occupy the land two years,  but we doubt very much whether the  stock farmer will find Timothy a satisfactory feed for his growing stock.  Clover hay is much the better for all  growing atock. Where oats can be  successfully grown lhe rotation can bo  lengthened one year by following corn  with oats, following oats with wheal  and sowing the clover in the spring  after the wheat is sown. This four-  year rotation requires the plowing of.  the laud twice, while the three-year  rotation only requires the land to be  turned once with the breaking plow.  It should be rememberted that if Timothy is used in the rotation,' it is it  surface feeder, as it were, ti-robber  plant that may not return to tho  stock farmer a just compensation.  When lhe farmer has thin land that"  he wishes to improve rye can be used  instead of wheat with profit, starting  lhe clover in the rye, and "hogging tho  rye," instead of harvesting it. The  next year the volunteer rye and clover will give a wonderful amount of  teed. This way the growth of two  seasons is returned to the land. Tho  stock farmer following any regular rotation, will find it very much to his  advantage to have a permanent pasture equalling in area at least one-  fourlh of his cultivaied land. If his  oulitvated land is rich, and gives  abundant crops a larger part than  one-fourth of his land will be found  profitable as permiuient pasture. Pastures properly managed give great returns for the labor expended and besides this, with a suiticient area of  permanent pasture the stock need not  be pastured on gruiu-growing or cultivated land". 'Jhis will prevent tho  jury of these lands by tramping, and  save much expense in ihe way of fencing. Another point is that the permanent pasture gives the farmer an  opportunity to keep the stock off the  cultivated laud during wet weather if  it is his wish to uso his farming land  a part of the time for pasture. The  stock farmer is dilermining a lolation  The stock farmer La determining a rotation should grow such crops as he  can best use as feed for his stock. It  com is grown and fed no better hay  ciui be grown lo balance the corn ration than clover. A corn ration can_  never be balanced with Timothy, und'  more than this, corn always does best  after clover. Do not grow oats simply because- they are a good feed. If  they do not yield a profitable crop at  market prices discard them, especially  if they are an uncertain crop. Always in any rotation that may be used  aim to give each crop tlie best possible i.  opportunity. For instance, in the  three year rotation, corn does best after clover and wheat can be more  cheaply produced after the corn. The.  chances for best results would be lessened to grow two crops of corn afler  clover and for,the clover to occupy the  land two years after the sowing would  be a disappointment. 'Hie point is,  when each crop h.-us had its best opportunity, do not follow it by itself.  n  WHEN TO CUT TREES FOR LUM-  Bli,!..  AVith proper aft.r treatment of the  wood, the time of felling does not seem  to affect its durability. Winter felling is generally preferable io .summer  felling because both fungi and insects  aie then inactive and the limber may  hi1, handled more at leisure! both in lho  woods and during shipment and conversion, and if worked up at once has  a chance to season to quite an extent  be-fore warm weather awakens its  many enemies. Where logging and  milling are carried on in a large way  arid the I \rc is -cut into boards and.  thesa put Lit rough the dry kiln before  the fungi aij'J beetles have a chance to  attack them, the product of summer  felling is as good as that of any winter  felled  timber.  Where logging is done in a small  way (he-.cutting of timber in summer,  usually involves loss -.and commonly  leads to inferior product. Peeling  standing timber and allowing it. to season oil the stump is; often recommended, but has never found favor in this  country. Girdling timber to partially season it is done for cypress, but  with indifferent success. 7 To cut  ttown trees, and allow them to leaf out  before cutting into logs iis often recommended; and it is claimed that'this  will lead to a complete removal of sap  arid stored reserve food, starch, and-  thereby increase durability. It is no.  practiced in this country.   | "  ?_  i,  i _  j  rfl  V''^Vs J  v      .   .^._���������   r.-rr-rvr ts r���������-~ -^nr^-^-nr-^TT^j^-sp*. Vrp-"TT7KC:-7-������-"7rr~T -r^fT^r^tt-ZtX?*?

Could tho worthy banker and pillar of the church have had but ��������� one  , glimple of his future son-in-law's mind  he would have somewhat altered his  opinion concerning him, for an intense  desire to shout or to laugh was agitating tho younger man, whose nerves  wore at high tension.  "I trust in the future to continue to  merit your encomiums, sir," Farrier  gravely remarked, and then the interview so long dreaded, was at an end.  "Thank God, he's gono 1" he ejaculated, wiping his'forehead'and throwing  himself into a chair; "it only shows  how careful one has to be. I wonder  who he wrote to for my character ?  .

Sho suited tho doctor well,  but in his heart ho loathed tho sight  of her, for he felt sure she spied on  him.  "Would you mind, my going out tor  an hour, sir?" she -askod.  "Cortaiuly,    Mrs.    Capon,     by    all  ���������means."  In a 'faw minutes the slamming of  tho door told him that, save for the  surgery boy, he was alone. The afternoon was foggy, and, thankful to have  an hour, to himself, he basked in the  warmth of the fire.'  Suddenly the surgery bell rang, and  with a subdued grumble he went to  the door. A woman, dressed quietly  In Black, stood waiting In (he gloom.  As sho enlez-ed, he caught sight of her  face, and muttered an oath.  ���������Muriel I .W hy do you come hero ?"

Finally, after a pause  .which seemed an eternity, sho said:  "Don't look at mo bo fiercely, Jack, it  bre-ks my heart."  The man, sitting on the edge of the  table, sullenly swung his legs backward  and forward, while his heart thumped  against  his  ribs.  "When you left London .you were  generous to me, I'll own, but "nothing  has gone well wilh me since. My little busiiiisi went to rack and 'ruin, and  many a time I've starved when I hadn't bread or the .means of getting it.  At last. I could bear it no longer, and  I havecomc to ask you to help me once  more. I know I've done wrong in coming, Jack, but no one knows my errand,  and I am unknown in .this out-of-the-  way place. Say you"ll help me, Jack!"  _How cheerfully in the past had Farrier forged the chain that seemed destined now. to ruin and to degrade him I  and how he loathed himself as ho felt  it dragging now at his heels!  "By all means, I'll help you, Muriel,  but don't come here again. I've done  with the past forever, and I'm going  to be married." Ho went nervously to  the door, opened it and closed if: again.  Tho woman feebly nodded.  "If anything ot this were to como  out, I should be utterly ruined; and  after all, I've tried to'be'a good man."  Utterly absorbed in this unexpected  blow, Farrier failed altogether to notice  the  increasing  pallor  of his visi-  sounded through the house. Already  he heard his boy' running downstairs  to open the front door and he felt  frantic. Gently lifting the woman,  who seemed still half fainting, he placid .her on tho stool and locked tho  door.  "You might have whistled back,  Jack I" reproachfully exclaimed a tall,  handsome girl, as she hurried into the  room followed by a slout,elderly lady.  "You look ill, dear, what's tho matter?" Fhc asked,tenderly, after she had  shyly kissed him.  "I've had a weary day, lillle one,  and I feel utterly done up. I'm afraid  I cannot let you both stop, for I'm  expecting several patients." His lips  seemed strangely dry-and his tongue  almost refused its office.  "Now, look here, Jack! I'm your  guardian angel now, and I insist on  tea���������don't you agree mother?"  At any other lime Farrier could have  smiled, but now, wilh his past in the  old cupboard, tho idea of merry making sickened him.  Laughing and talking, the (wo women helped the boy fetch the tea things,  while the man tried to be animated,  bul. failed utterly in  tho attempt.  Ho was trying to drink, when ho  heard with ears sharpened by anxiety a  ���������'deep sigh coming from Ihe cupboard,  followed by a slipping, sliding noise.  His heart nearly suffocated him until  he sa\^piat none bul himself had heard  it, antPho laughetr loud and long in a  hysterical  burst of  merriment.  "I'm awfully sorry, little woman,"  ho gasped when aL last his ghastly merriment had ceased, "but the fact is  I've been overdoing it lately, and I  want a holiday, badly. Please for-  givo me." . His face was while and  drawn. i.  With lears in her eyes Miss Forrest  looked at her lover.  "Very well, Jack, dear, we'll bo off  now, for it's close on G, and I mean to  try and persuade mammy and father  to let us be married soon, so that you  can get your holiday." She turned  lovingly to her mother. "Doesn't he  look ill mammy? We must look after  him a hit more and see that he doesn't  overdo it." "Good-by, Jack, darling,  You'll come round to-morrow, won't  you ?" ���������'.. '  In a few moments they.wero hurrying home through Lhe dark streets, and  Farrier was alone once more.  . Halt dreading what he was to find,  he forced himself to unlock the cupboard door, which swung violently op-  oh. To hishorror, he saw in an instant that tho still figure which had  slipped down against the locked door,  and which foil with such a sickening  thud as it was opened, was but tho dead  body of ono to whom in the past he  had owed countless kindnesses. He  stood as if turned to stone, while the  loud ticking of tho clock seemed almost unbearable. Then his numbed  brain awoke again to life, and project  after project flashed beforo him, while  ever present in his thoughts were his  servants and their virulent gossip. To  call in the police was, he knew, the  wisest course, and to trust to his luck  to extricate him from suspicion. Then  doubts began their paralyzing mission.  Suppose som������ ono found out his acquaintance, with the deceased, would  not the fact, rhat he had concealed tho . into  body during tho visit of Miss Forrest  ,be damning proof of his guilt? Would  he bo able to convince tho world that  the woman died from exhaustion and  not from the close cupboard? Then he  wondered if his housekeeper would  come in, and with giant strength ho  raised tho dead body a'nd placed it upright in tho armchair, whore, wilh  glassy, slaring eyes, it seemed to accuse him with pitiless severity.  'Time was slipping away, and still ho  had come- to no decision, while every  minutetnnreasedhisri.sk.  Locking the door',1 he opened his side  entrance and looked out. The evening was dark and foggy, and but few-  people were about, and it was only by  the sound of their steps that ho knew  that. Opposite his side door was a  long narrow court which divided two  rows of houses built in the pre-sani-  tary past, and which ended in a cul-de-  sac: He unlocked tho door once more  and turned down tho gas, and took  the body iu his.arms, and, daring everything, ran unsteadily across to the  dark passage.

POOR WAY TO ECONOMIZE.  ''It is difficult to economize, and the  most difficult part of it is to know  in what possible.direction to practice  oconomy," said the wise woman. "Often those who do it will carry their  economy to too grea.t an extreme. The  Tight way .to do it is to get along  without extras and use just what is  necessary for everyday comfort. It  does not mean that thoro should not  be enough, or any deprivation of necessary comforts.  "There are women who when they  economize, will do so at the wrong  end. She comes to tho:obnclusion that  whenever she doesn't buy anything or  cuts off an item of exponso sho is  economizing. She will attend to the  grocers' hills.

A Hindu looks upon l-he slaughter of  an animal with tho same dread and  horror with which he would witness-  the taking of a- life of a human being.  It would be well for some of the hunters of our own country to learn from  such pangs a lesson in humanity.  Rev. B. Fay Mills tells tho story of a  hunter who employed as a decoy for  deer a peculiarly constructed whistle,  which closely imitated the-voice of a  young fawn calling its mother.  WiLh His rifle in hand ready for instant action, he _was one day blowing  his whistle, .when suddenly a mother  deor thrust her head out of tho bushes  and looked straight toward him. There  she stood, trembling with fear, yet  looking this way and that in search  'of the little ono, wn'ich she supposed  to be in danger.     The hunter said:  "As I looked into those eloquent  eyes, anxiously glancing here and  there with maternal fear, my heart  molted.   I could not shoot."  Young deor that haw not been chased or 'fired at by hunlers will frequently come very near to unarmed  travellers. The writer has had a deer  walk just in advance of the hor.-o for  some distance; and it is well known  that wild deer often come into pastures and feed with tho cows. To  take advantages of this confidence  seems .very near to murder.  FAMOUS MADSTONE  finye S!r Waller Scott Inspiration for "The  Talisman.

It will pay for  its cost many times in the saving before its life of usefulness is. over. A  broom not in use should always be kept  upside down, so that the: straws fall  outward. This keeps it in shape. In  sweeping, use first one side arid then  the other. If you sweep.always on tho  same side of your broom it will soon  grow one-sided and have to be cast  aside. When, however, .a broom is not  badly worn, only mashed out of shape,  it can be straightened by wetting,  pulling into shape and drying, bottom  upward.  FIRST MAHOGANY BUREAU.  Many people suppose that the use of  mahogany for the manufacture of furniture is vory ancient. As a matter of  fact, the first, record we havo of this  rare wood is in 1695, when Sir Walter  Raleigh repaired one of his ships with  it in the port' of Trinidad. The next  we hear of mahogany is many years  later, .when an- Englishman who was  tailing from one of Lhe West Indies  lived quite a lot of what appeared to  him rough lumber for ballast, and  when he arrived in England and found  his brother building a house he gave  this apparently ill-featured tinibor to  him for his house. When his brother  turned tho lumber over to his carpen-'  ters, they refused to use it, because it  was so hard that it spoiled their tools;  _o its use for building that house was  abandoned.  His-wife, however, a. short timo after gave some of this *yood. to her-cabinetmaker in order to have-him make  for her a candlo box. He, too, complained of the hardness of the wood  and its effect upon his tools. The  candle box was finished at last, however/and it was so handsome, having  taken on such , a beautiful polish,  that this box became quite a curiosity  among the society people of that day;  so much so that the lady's, husband  had the sitme cabinetmaker make him  a bureau of the same wpod. The bureau was so unusually beautiful that  the cabinetmaker went regularly into  tho business of manufacturing  bureaus, and made not only a reputation, but a large fortune out of the  ���������business.  A SILENT COMPANION.  . Ho is not my fellow student in the  sense of attending the same educational institution as myself, and I have  littlo knowledge of the source from  which he derives his training.' However,  it is evidently one well adapted to his  mental calibre.- Nigger is, nevertheless, my friend, and fellow-studenl;  his face at all. times oxpressiiig sympathy and feeling, and his superior intelligence leading him' to take un interest in things of which others of, his  social position have no knowledge. He  is ever near while I am busy with my  studies, ready to assist me if occasion  require, and to give his opinion on  -matters of importance; In fact, at  this moment, from his position on my  shoulder, he is critically examining my  writing, and purring a tune of satisfaction wilh my description of him.  Tho most striking feature about this  .extraordinary  being  is  that' he  is almost entirely dovoid of color���������no light  spot breaks the blackness o������ his sombre  coat.   He: has   the  ordinary  size, of a  full-grown  domestic cat,    and; indeed  many  of  hisi  external    qualities    aro  common to all his race, but his mental  attributes  mark  him as a cat  among  cats.   His head is of unusual sb:c; Lhe  'phrenological  bumps    of    approbative-  ness, mirihiulness, love oi lii.ute, being  well developed; ihuse of selfishness, <le-  struciiveueiiii,  mid   secretivenoss   being .  unusually small.   As is thu case with  every  iiri.iocruL'tc   pussy,   his  brow  is  low and broad;  his uliubby face, .good-  natured;   his   round  eye,   well  opened;  his small  mouih, well  shaped.        His-  large  oars   give   evidence   of   Ihe  fact  Unit, his is an open-handed mil u re, it  the expression  may   be applied  to one  of  the   lower  order;'and,  although il-  iiaturcd people have said that his ra- .  it her flat nose  proved him a lazy and  iudolent- cut,   his  firm   chin,  evincing  groat  stvengIh   of  character,   entirely  contradicts  l ho  statement.  Pussy has just jumped .io>vii fi'-n  his elevated position, in que it of tho  mouse making itself heard iu tl._"  wainscoting, and, lis I should not liko  to hurt his feelings, I wish to state;  while he is not watching, thi.t. my poor  old cat is cro.ss-oyed, and (hat some  wicked boys, in default of other sport,  one ill-fated day cruelly ,cut off hia  whiskers, thereby robbing him of much  of his feline beauty. Not wishing Nigger to see these derogatory remarks,  I shall close, before he returns, this  ordinary attempt, to describe an extraordinary cat.

It looks as if the agitation of the B.  C. papers for a Canadian mint was  likely to bear fruit. It is generally  believed the subject will be take 11 up  at the coming session at Ottawa.  Wm.

As there are not, probably more  than 12 or 15 in the city qualified and  eligible, the task when it comes to selection cannot be a very .difficult one.  Mr. Hume, Minister of Mines, is  asking suggestions from all interested  as to changes in the mining laws. As  we have suggested in other columns,  the only way to get a proper expression on the question is to consult a  full committee of miners,' owners and  capitalists. <���������  We learn, that Mr. E. IT. Tomlinson,  who is connected, with the Last Chance  mine, has donated ������500 to the'building  committee of the new Presbyterian  church to be erected here in the  spring.

The'Silvertonian seems to think  the late Cninese squabble is at the  bottom of the movement to form a  miners' union here. This is not so  At the meeting the matter was not  even taken up for consideration, and  though one or two referred to it, discussion on the subject was speedily  disposed of, the chairman fully setting  forth the meeting was not called for  that purpose, but to organize the union  only.
