CHAPTER VIII.  Eva was not dead, sho was not ovon  Injured beyond the offeot of tho shock,  and the complete drenching which she  h.'id received from the turious downpour of rain.  Mrs. Westbrook superintended all  tire efforts made for recovery, and sho  shut herself in tho same room wilh  tho girl, aad did not oven go to speak  to her own son when, ho sent to inquire-  into tho condition of the fair patient.  All this was very kind, or it would  havo been so had tho notion- been  prompted by good will. In vory truth,  however, Al rs. Westbrook was afraid to  lose sight of Eva for a single instant.  If once Ernest proposed lo tho girl nnd  was accepted, her own objections  would go for nothing, and she sternly  resolved that all she could do should  be done to avert such a sequel to .hor  own unwise conduct in holding out a  helping hand to this poor girl, n All  through that night 'Mrs. Woathiook  iwatohed by poor Eva's side, while she  slept > heavily and dreamlessly, and  when tho first streaks ot morning  made their way into the chamber, and  the sleepor opened her eyes, Airs.  Westbrook hardened hor heart to the  uolf-imposed task she had undertaken.  "Eva, aro you awake ?" she asked,  gently.  "Xojs, I think I am/' was the drowsily uttered reply.  "I wish you would rouse yourself,"  was the next remark, "I want to talk  seriously with you."  The girl raised herself on her pillows, passed her hands over -her face,  and then, feeling more thoroughly  awake, she asked:  "Yos; what is it?"  "I have been kind to you, have I  not, Eva "���������"  "Yes; very kind, indeed," was the  grateful reply; "but for you i might  have been helnloss and ignorant. I  owe all that I am,, and all that 1 ever  may ho, to you, Airs. Westbrook. If  I never speak of gratitude it is not  because I do not feel it; but because  words are too weak to expiess my deep  sense of what I owe to your kindness."  "And would you really do anything  in your power, Eva, to prove your  gratitude to me?" asked the lady  gently.  "Try me," she answered: "put me  to  the  test."  "I will put you to the tesV' replied  the elder woman, slowly. "Xou have  it in your power to make me very  happy or intensely miserable ; to make  me love you or to make me curse tho  day on which I first saw your face."  "You frighten me," said Eva, while  her face became pale with agitation.  "What have I done? What can I  do?"  "You can swear to me that if my  son ever asks you lo be his wile you  will refuse him," was lho coldly-deliberate reply.  ' "Your sou Ernest?" and the girl  Berimed to shudder with emotion and  surprise. "He never spoke to me;  he���������"  "All the more easy for you to give  me ,the promise," interrupted the  mother 'promptly;/"if he has never  spoken of love and you do hot love him  the assurance can cost you no pain,  and can be no* sacrifice,"  , ��������� But Eva's face had suddenly flushed  hotly; she covered her burning cheeks  with her hands, and she made'no answer to the woman who looked down  so coldly and so keenly upon her.  "Well?" asked Airs. Westbrook after.  a time.  "I���������I will go away ; 1 will hide frOm  h/imi; I will try to forget him," sobbed  the girl, painfully. .���������������������������'.'.,"���������  "And you will swear that you. will  never marry him without my consent?" asked Mrs. Westbrook, sternly- '":���������'.  For reply Eva flung herself upon  her knees, moaning pitifully, as she  , "pleaded:                <                    /  "Don't make me swear that; have  mercy upon mo for���������for���������1 love him."  Sho hid hor face as though' she had  pleaded guilty to some dreadful crime  and even Mis. Westbrook's .worldly  heart was slightly touched by the poor  maiden's  deep humiliation. /  But she had hor end to gain, she  had her son to save and she replied  scornfully  and bitterly:  "Everything butcwh.a,t 1 ask; I have  been a fool for my pains. I biiye nurtured a serpent in my breast, and it  fakes the first opportunity of stinging  me. Upon my word, you have played  your cards well Eva1 Randolph ; but I  shall not condescend to reproach you  if you have no more 'dignify of character, no more self-respect than to live  for years upon my bounty and then  try to entangle my soni into a marriage  tliat will be an outrage fo me, and  in every sense of the word, a wrong  to hini, then anything f can say  against it would be in vain."  And Airs. Westbrook rose to her feet  with an air of injured virtue and dignity and moved a step or two toward  the door.  Eva rose also. Her face was white  as the nightgown she wore ; her large  dark eyes seemed bigger and more  mournful than was there wont but  there were no tears in them' and she  said resolutely but with strong emotions  "I give you the promise you require;  you Triage a right to exact- ft, for I  owe all that I am' to you. But I must  go away; 1 must not see Ernest again  till 1 have conquered myself and forgotten him'.". ������j . ,  '- "You swear to me that you will never marry my son without my consent?*  asked airs. Westbrook, her eyes flashing with triumph.  "Yes; 1 will swear that never under  any circumstances will I be his wife,  If you like," was the passionate    re-  j^y- .      '���������  "You need not promise too much, my  dear." was the smiling reply; "but you  irte a good girl, Eva,.,a,nd I find /f was  iot mistaken  in you;   nnd now you I  hiad better go back to bod and sleep  awhile."  *'i cannot do that," was tho dejected  reply. "1 must go and hide myself;  1 must start for London at onco. I  must  never see Ernest  again."  "You shall not see him, hut you cannot go  now.   Get into  bed;  leave it  all to   me.    I will send Ernest out of  j the way in. the course of (he morning,  and you can start for town with Barbara, as arranged; thon you will give  rise to no curiosity; our compact must  be a secret between us."  And so saying, Airs. Westbrook, halt  i by  force, and  halt by persuasion,' in-  ' ducod  13va  |o return io bed.  i     The     scheming     mother     managed  everything as sho had said she would.  Ernest went away to keep an appointment about tho purchase of some land  in    tho    neighborhood,  believing  that  Eva was still too unwell to leave her  room.    But as soon ,-rs ho was out of  tho  way  tbe   carriage    was    brougbl  round, the two girls'and their hostess  entered it, and Airs. Weslhtook, when  she returned  to  tho. Grange, had the  satisfaction of feeling that sho had io-  moved a great temptation out of tho  way of her son.  When times 1 returned homo he was  surprised and annoyed to find that  Eva had gone away without his seeing  her; but ho strongly suspected that  it was his mother's work, and he smiled mischievously when ho thought how  soon ho would outwit her.       >  With this object in view, he went  up to London a few days after Eva  had left the Grange, but when  he called at the house in Gower street  he was informed that Aliss Randolph  was gone to  Home.  In some agitation he asked to see  Airs. Longford or Barbara. Both ladies were at home, and both received  him cordially. But neither of them  could tell him. much about the girl ho  sought.  She had suddenly announced her in-  tcaition of going abroad with a married lady, who was likewise an artist,  and Barbara declared herself hurt and  indignant to think that Eva would not  be in, England to be present; at her approaching  marriage.  " 1 suppose she left you an address  to which her letters are to bo forwarded ?" asked Ernest, as he rose to  take his leave."  " No ; bub we are to write to the post-  office at Home as soon as we hear  from'her the probable date of her arrival there," was the reply; " and if  you or your mother wish to write to  hot, aud "will send tho letter here, we  will forward it."  After this he took his leave. He felt  hurt aad perplexed; lie saw his  mother s hand in the girl's sudden  flight, but how to thwart his parent  and how to bring Evil back he did not l  know.

And, oddly enough, this conviction  g.ive her peaco  and comfort1.  .Tor a man, sujib a sentiment would  have been impossible, bu'ti a woman of  Eva s teinporameni this stato of feoi-  ,hig was by noi moans unnatural-. (Her  pride and her heart were satisfied,  and though the sweot end of love  m'ght never bo hers, she , thojught  with a sad smile that thousands of  wo'mon as pure and as gifted as herself  were compelled by falo to live their  lives alone.  But the life of nn old maid had no  terrors for Eva Randolph; aud one  thing she knew beyond all shadow of  doubt���������she would certainly die unmarried if she could not be Ernest  Westbrook s wife.  Some dajys elapsed before she felt  strong enough to put the proffered  cup of happiness definitely asido, before she could nerve herself to accomplish the sactifice which sho had sworn  to make. When she did take up her  pen,  however, with  hor own hand  to  write to them ? Sho could ask the  questions, but sho could not answer  them, and, as tho sure-sjt way out of  her dilemma, sho sent for a cab and  drove to tho office of a solicitor whom  she had- once mot, and whom she knew  well  by  reputation.  To him sho stated her desire to  know something about her father's  circumstances cut tlie time of his  death, and thon sho produced tho puzzling  letter. . M  " Don't answer it, and don't sign  anything," was Air. Garrett's advice.  " Leave the mattor in our hands and  we will soon unravol the mystery."  Eva acquiesced and returned homo,  but tho surprises of tho day were not  yet over.  A' letter from Airs. Westbrook awaited her.  "Aly Dear Eva," it ran, "I know it  is your birthday, and I want you to  come and dino with us, and Ernest will  take us to a theatre to-night. Wo  have secured a box. You "must come.  Tlie premise Ionco exacted I give you  back, so consider yourself a free agent  ���������but come.  ' 'Your old friend,  "Celia Westbrook."  c  .      ,       ,   .. This  letter  utlorly    bewildered  tho  seal her own fate,  her  letter  was as   girl-    Did  Mr���������.  Westbrook   want  her  decisive    as Mrs.  Woslbrook    herself   to marrly Ernest ? No; that oould not  could have desired  "I am ve,ry grateful for the high  compliment you pay mo," sho wrote,  "but I shall never marry; therefore,  you will perceive that I must say 'No  lo your question, though I hope always to regard you1 and your mother  as  my  kindest   and  dearest  friends."  This letter she posted herself, and  thon the days and weeks rolled on,  and no second appeal came in answer  to her  rejection.  Ernest Westbrook evidently regarded her decision as final, and sho told  there pleading tho love with which his herselr tha(. it was s0,, and yet s}ae  heart was filled, occurred to him, but could aot reot. She'worked hard, and  he; soon dismissed that idea, and though  she di(1 all sha oourtl to drown thought  ho was not clever as a letter, writer,  and had but little faith in the. success of an offer sent byi post he was  compelled to make his choice between  waiting until Eva should return and  appealing at once  to her on  paper.  So ho decided upon' the latter course  and he wrote such a letter as only a  true, generous-hearted man could  write, and one chat any pure woman  might be proud ro receive.  He told'her.-that he loved her; that  his love was not the sudden passion  of an1'hour, but a feeling that had  been growing for years. Her noble  character had first compelled his .esteem he wrote, and her sweet disposition and beauty had won his love, and  now he asked her if she could return  his affection and if she would be his  wife.   '  He put his heart into the page, but  he was dissatisfied with the letter  when it was written. It seemed So  cold and formal, and he felt that whole  volumes of written words were less  -powerful to evoke .responsive love than  would be one touch of a hand,' or. one  glance full of meaning into loved  eyes that were able to read that  meaning. "'���������.',  But the letter- was so-iled and posted, and after a long journey and  much delay it reached Eva's hand. In  the meanwhile Eva traveled with her  companion, with whom it must be  confessed she had little or no sympathy, from ono Continental city to  another, visiting'all the museums and  picture galleries and studios; but to  her. preoccupied mind they seemed  very much alike, and she took far less  pleasure in them than she had anticipated. . -  At length they arrived at Rome, and  Eva wont to the post-office to ask if  there were any letters for her.  Yes. there was ono, and it came from  Barbara Longford. But in' it; was inclosed another missive, and a glance  at the handwriting told Eva from  whom it camo.  How her heart beat, fast and painfully,, and then seemed: to stand quite  still; how she became hot and cold  by turns, and how her head swam, and  she nearly fainted with emotion, I  need .not tell. But sho recovered  slightly, after a time. The letter was  still unopened; it might contain somo  mere friendly message ; it might even  bo reproachful,, but in any case it was  passing strange that ho should write.  And so she sat and pondered, afraid,  and yet longing to break1 tho seal.  . She opens it at last, and reads the  fervid words addressed to her, ana  then she feels like one ���������whose heart  is so full of love and thankfulness that  now in the hour of her triumph she  would  like   to  die.  But death does not come. Instead  of the sleep o������ oblivion that she longs  for. comes the slow but cold a'waken-  i n.g. a  "He Jc-ycs me I" was the glad cry of  her heart. "He loves mo. They can  never take   that  assurance frojn me,  aird mejnory in labor, and she made  pleasant acquintances; but though she  endeavored to reconcile herself to the  idea of taking up ��������� her residence in  Italy for a few years, she could not  do so.  ,A feeling of home-sickness, which  she struggled against, but which she  could not overcome, took possession nf  her, and at length she yielded to it  audi turned  her  face homeward,.  The Longfp'rda wore delighted to  have her back with them, foo- thoy  had almost learned- to regard.her as  a member  of their  own family.  So once more we see her in her old  rooms, glad to be with friends, and  trying hard, and with some success, to  treasure her loive;.:''and yet keep it  from wounding hor.  In all these years she has never  heard from her stepmother, Airs.  Church, or received any help frotm her  or from her husband!. More than onco  it has occurred) to Eva to make. inquiries about the' affairs of her late  father, but various causep have made  her defer doing so.  Suddenly, about a fortnight ' after  her return to England, sho remembers  onee morning that it is her birthday  ���������her twenty-first birthday., She is of  ago I . And as the thought occurs to  ner she laughs bitterly ; for what can  bo. Was ho married 1 But again hor  reason answered " No," for there was  no mention of anyone but themselves.  Should she -accept the Invitation was  the next consideration. Pride said  " No," but love said " Yes," and the  conflict in tho girl's breast was a  long and trying ono ; so long, indeed,  that evening came before sho had decided whether she would go or not.  Sho was still sitting in hor own room  debating tho matler with herself,  quite unconscious of tho flight of tims,  when a second and far more earnest  appeal arrived from Airs. Westbrook  and this turned the scale of victory ,  in love's favor, and Pride spread his  wings and fled vanquished from the  field.  To be Continued.  DISHONORED GENERALS.

The eye itself, independent of its  surroundings,- has no more expression  ���������than a glass marble. ������������������ A prominent  English oculist makes this daring  siatement, and he defends his position with emphasis "The eyes have no  > expression whatever," ho says. "How  do you explain tho fact that the eyes  -of one person arc more expressive than  those ot another?" 1 am asked. They  are not. Tha difference consists in  certain nervous contractions of the  lids peculiar to the individual.  "Observe for yourself, and you will  sec that I am right. We will see that  I am greatly interested in something,  and my attention is suddenly called  from it by an unexpected interruption. Aly upper eyelid raises itself  just a little'but the eye proper does  noc change an iota in appearance. If  the interruption is but momentary,  the elevation of tho lid will be but  momeniary. If the surprise caused by  un interruption is continued tho lid  may be raised oven a littlo more, and  in fact, the whole of .the forehead, including the eyebrows, is raised and  wrinkled. 'Jut tho eye remains tho  same.  "When a person is excited, much' the  same emotions aro gone through," continued the doctor. "His eyes are open  wide, in cases of intenso excitement,  to their greatest extent, but the forehead is not wrinkled,, and tho ball of  the eye is as expressive as- a bit of  tjlass.   ��������� No more.

Two silver rings, of which one is in  Paris and the other in Germany, have  associations of rare interest. They  were worn by Alartin Luther and his  bride, Catherine de Bora, on their wedding day in 1525. The rings bear on  tho inside tho names of Alartin Luther  and his wife, and on the outside aro  engraved the spear, nails, and ropes,  tho symbols of Christ's suffering and  death,  Nature's Voices.  ,To the discerning oar Nature has  many voices, Sho 'has a message in  the sweet tones of (the brook us it  rushes down tho hillside 'in ocean's  moody voices, now rippling with gent-  Jest cadence upon tho golden sands,  anon in deep boisterous voice as she  lashes the beach wilh foam. .

Kingdom' was split into two, that  of Israel consisting of 10  tribes, and  that of Judah consisting of two tribes.  J]n 712 B. C. the 10 tribes were .attacked by Sbalnvaneser and carried away  captive to Assyria, their places being  occupied  by Assyrian colonists.     Th������  Kingdom of Judah   continued till 588  B. C, when it was overthrown and tho  mlainf'part of  tho  population .carried  away captive to Babylon.   In 539 B. C.  Cyrus conquered Babylon and restored  liberty to tho Jews, of whom' a large  number returned to Palestine.     Some  writers   maintain  that  those  who returned  air belonged to the two tribes  who were taken captive in 588 B. C,  and that the 10 tribes who were taken  earlier,   never    returned.       These 10  tribes they call the Lost Tribes. They  have been identified.with various races  Afghans, Japs, Mexicans, North American Indians, Gypsies, etc.   Some even  maintain that this inhabitants of Great  Britain,   and   Ireland   are   descended  from the Lost Tribes.   There is little  or no reason for any of these identifications, and the last, according to Prof.  Tylor is "abject nonsense."   There are  very good grounds for believing that  tlie   10 tribes were never lost.     When  Cyrus freed all Jews indiscriminately,  tflie 10 tribes as well as the two, .were  under  bis  authority,  and  it is   most  probable that all the Jews of all  the  tribes who wished to return home did  so together.   Those���������and thoy were a  large number��������� who preferred   to ��������� remain where thoy were, either gave up  their religion and became merged with  the Assyrians, or remained in scattered communities,    thc    descendants Of  .-wihich  still    exist  in, m'any parts,  of  Asia.

Brady,  229 Talbot St., this city, feels that he  is a lacky man. For three years ho  has been slowly, sinking into a quicksand, deeper and deeper all the time  and ho not aware of his danger.  Air. Brady had Bright's Disease.  Bright's Disease is generally considered incurable ��������� in fact there is only  ono known cure. It is a Kidney Disease, thoso - organs decaying and  neglecting to filter tha, blood. Well,  Air.

Thore was  only one Ihihg to save him.   i  Air Brady fouud out what was (he  matter with him by chance. He read  a list of tho symptoms'of Bright's Disease in a paper and all once recognized his own case. Thon came the cure.  Again ho was lucky. After trying  several medicines in vain he struck the  right one, the only one that is a particle of use in Bright's Disease���������Dodd's  Kidney Pills which havo never failed  yet.  Says Air. Brady himself:���������"I have  been troubled for three years with  Bright's Disease and I did not know  it until I read tho symptoms in one of  your papers. I tried several remedies,  but none could touch, the spot. I purchased threo boxes of your Dodd's Kidney Pills and after I had used one box  I felt tho disease leaving me. 1 am  now completely cured.

Whon a burglar wants to break into a Peruvian house he takes a spbngo  and a bucket of water and moistens the  walls, which aro covered with only a  thin coating of mud, and easily dissolve upon the application of moisture. Then when the mud rs removed  he takes a sharp knife and outs the  strips of split bamboo which serve as  a substitute for laths.

':*'{Vj  XEbefllMnfnQlRevfew  SATURDAY-OCTOBER SI, ISM.  TRY AND COMPROMISE.  Very frequently you will hour business men sny the country would he nil  right again if the miners were only uf,  work. This is true us fur as it goes;  hut it must'not bo forgotten thut wc  must have mines us well ns miners to  bring back old-time business and prosperity. Either one is perfectly useless  for the purposes of the business man  without the .other. Then when difficulties like thc present arise, it is but  absolute justice that in making settlements the one shoud be consincred as  well as the other. This, however, is  not the feeling, even with business  men, they too often run cither tlie one  side or the other madly. This is not  right.  To get a better view of the case we  must   commence   at   the   beginning.  Prior to the passage of the eight-hour  law,.', there was the best of feeling in  the Sloean between employer and employees.   They met and  talked   with  one  another ns sociably  as any other  two  ch'sscs  in  the community.    The  employee felt that he whs well1 paid,  and the  employer  was   well satisfied  with thc service for which ha paid his  ' &3.30.   "Will any sensible man   in   the  world say-  that   under such   circumstances    legislative   interfeicnce   was  cither called  for or ju.itiliable?    You  will sometimes   hear men say   ''There  was no call for tho law, but now that it  is passed we must support it."   Tin's  rertainly    is 'very    lame     argument.  There was no nccetiity for the serpent  10 tempt Eve, hut when he did it  we  sny he did right.   Though every thing  was  satisfactory   between owner   and  men up  to thc passage of tlie law, our  jockey  politicians were  not satisfied;  they wanted to get back to  the House  again, and the whole country had lo be  thrown back two or three years  in its>  progress to enable them to get back.  That is the whole issue in a nutshell.  The question now, however, is the  settlement of the trouble.  The public naturally sympathises  with the good, responsible miner who  says, "'$3.50 a day and pay SI.00 for  board is a3 little as I should take, all  circumstances surrunding my calling  considered." Thc owner at the same  time says, "If I was paying good wages  for an average of 9 hours work, for the  value I received and with which the  miner was perfectly satisfied, why  should I now be asked to pay the same  wage for 20 per cent, less value because the politicians for personal gains  have thrown the country into a turmoil setting capital and labor at daggers drawn ?" This is the real situation,  and any fair man must see that no  settlement can be made, on just principles, that does not consider the one  side as well as the other. There is no  possible way of evading this fact. If  an amicable compromise on an equitable basis, that will take no more from  the one side than the other, can be  made, that would be one way of disposing of tho question. If it cannot,  in all conscience let all classes of the  community petitition for the repeal of  11 law that was nerer asked for and  never required, at least in its pen.nl  clauses, so lhat the men on both sides  will be allowed to adjust their differences at will, without tho violation of  th('law of the laii"!. if, then, the men  conclude that (hey want tfJ.CO again,  and that .������ntU!acii>vy work' can be done  for the motley in 1< su than 10 hour*���������  infi, SA or 0, as lhe ease maybe, !<���������(  them stipulate accordingly. One advance, step on tlie part of the unions  towards a settlement on any of these  lines, would be'assurance, that ' they  took no .men into their ranks who  could not be guaranteed to do a good  man's work every clay they went into a  tunnel.  2 a s 'i  .CClClCSS! i^SS*  The natural exuberance of  youth often leads to recklessness.

From the way straws are bending it  would not take a world of effort to  settle the mining trouble on a basis of  $3.25 a day. It is better, however, to  have the trouble spread over the whole  of Kootenay before'anything is done,  and then there will be uniform wages  and uniform work the country over.  Illicit belter it would have been if thc  men had accepted $3.25 from the Star  when oil'ered. The other mines would  doubtless have followed, and no time  would have been lost to cither the  mines or thc miners. With that rate  established for the eight hours, the  miners could next havo petitioned the  legislature to abolish tho penal clauses.  This done, where extra time was desired, they could have asked 50 cents  an hour for it, and in the end secured  better pay than they ever got, and that  veluntarily from the owners, which  amounts to a great deal.  ll  to the prejudice of fair play  and decency.   They  fully  recognise that the  tendency, thc wcrld over,  is  to reduce  the working hours of the mechanic,tho  artisan, the laborer,  thc clerk  and the  miner,   not singly, as  Joe Alartin   affirms, but bodily.   To use all alike the  proper course is lo declare eight-hours  a statutory day, so that any man hiring  wilh an other  by the day, the week or  the year knows.when  eight hours expire every day   his day's work is done,  unless  he hiimielf distinctly arranacs  for longer service.    We believe  loo  il  is the feeling of many of the Conservative party,  as it must he that of all  thinking Liberals   as  well,  that   this  province has  outgrown the age of serfdom,that the people are too intelligent  to desire legi-ilalion that creates them  the wards of the state.  They want laws  lhat protect the industrial classes from  unnecessary  toil at thc.wish of   hard  task masters,   and  at the  same   lime  guarantee    tlie   toiler   personal   independence���������that leaves him free  to sell  his own services as  he   thinks best in  his own interest.    Wo. are  very much  Ktirprisedar' such legislation would not  be preferred  by a large section of thc  mining community  as   well  as  other  classes of tho people.  We cannot see the argument there  is in the personal attacks which some  papers are now making 011 the Hon. F.  Carter Cotton for alleged misdeeds of  his in the western states before coming  to this province. As far as we can  leam he never took up . an assumed  name, and has since coming to the  province been, more or less, in public  life so his . whereabouts havo always  boon known. If his acts were, punishable he has always been available for  punishment. We do not look for  angels in public life in Canada more  than elsewhere. Perhaps the history  of many who are attacking him is no  better than that of Mr. Cotton. Wc  arc not in love with all of his public  acts since he became a cabinet minister, and we are -quite content with  attacking these.  We very much fear the Nelson Tribune's explanation of the reason why  miners who refuse ?3 here accept it in  Ainsworth and elsewhere, only leaves  confusion worse confounded. It is in  substance that the miners now only  ask for the eight hours 111 every camp  what they formerly got there. But  why should even this be the case ? Has  the eight-hour law advanced the price  of eres ? Has it increased the quantity  or grade of thc ores in the leads ? No;  it has diminished thc output 20 per  cent, for a given wage. That is all;  Why then have not the owners a grievance '? Up to thc coming in of lhe law  lhey paid men all lhey demanded and  satisfied them fully in wages. Then  why should thoy not now object to the  demand for the same wage for 20 per  cent less work, when no compensating  element of any character comes into  the question? While at the matter, it  is a vory pertinent question to ask  why there ever should have been a difference of 50 cents a day between thc  Sloean ami Ainsworth, Uossland and  (ither camps, if in days past tlie Slo-  I cm owners paid 50 cents more than  I other camps, t.hey are entitled to some  > cuii'ddi-r.ilion now for pilot liberality  land go������d ollicea towards lhe nn-n.  The Nelson Tribune says: "If it is  found (after a trial) that the eight-  Hour hwv is injurious to the mining industry then it can be repealed." Now,  has the Tribune thc slightest idea that  the miners, as they stand in tho province today, would voluntarily consent  to a repeal of the law, if all who have  substantial interests in thc country  knew its operation seriously injured  the country? The answer is certainly,  "No." Then as our present legislators  passed tho litw to catch lhat vote would  lhey dare 'oll'end it by repeal? The  answer is obvious. Then why was not  well enough left alone?  Of all the  bereavemen ts  which are possible to a home, the  loss of a child is  perhaps the most  disappointing,  and the hardest  to bear. During  the heated spell  in the summer in  New York City as  many as a thousand babies have  died in a week.  Of course, in a  crowded city;,  with its unsanitary districts,  w a 11 y of these  deaths would  have occurred  anv way. The  fact remains that this tremendous mortality  was to a great extent due to the lack of  Inherent resisting power in the victims.  These babies when born had in their bodies  Uie seeds of disease. The deadly heated  term only shortened the period of their  sufferings.  If a woman wishes her babies to be  healthy and strong- and able to resist the  usual ailments of childhood, she must take  proper care'of herself in a womanly way  during the period of gestation. A woman  who suffers from weakness and disease of  the organs distinctly feminine is unfitted  for wifehood and motherhood. Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription is a wonderful medicine for ailing women. It acts directly on  the delicate and important organs concerned. It makes them \������dl and strong.  It allays inflammation, heals ulceration,  soothes pain, stops exhausting drains and  gives rest and tone to the tortured nerves.  Thousands of women have testified to its  almost miraculous merits. Many of them  have permitted their names, addresses,  experiences and photographs to be reproduced in Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical Adviser.

THE PRINCIPLE COVERS ALL.  The Nelson Tribune cannot under,:  ' stand that section of the Conservative  plat rorm that bindi the party to  the  principle only of the eight-hour law. It  declares that that party cannot be sincere because it has not declared assent  to Joe Martin's Act,   body  and bones.  There is an old saying, "There is none  so blind as he who will not see," and it  is a true one. The Conservatives of this  province,   no matter)' what else   they  may be, are not a bociy of fools.   They  believe that one clsas of the community is as much entitled to consideration  as another���������they are not  vote hunters  Thereare three conditions:  When the blood is poor;  When more flesh is needed;  When there is weakness  of the throat or lungs.  There is one cure: that is  Scott's Emulsion.  It contains the best cod-  liver oil emulsified, or digested, and combined with  the hypophosphites and  glycerine.

The Silvertonian, in its own quiet  way, takes a shy at The Review without mentioning names. It matters  little whether it is by the day,' the  night or the shift the miners work, thc  fact is they want former pay for 20 per  cent less work. Thc owners offer them  relatively 7 per cent more than they  fornurly got. They persist in the demand for the 20 per cent, aud circulate  the report that they are fighting  against a reduction of wages. This is  not a fact.  Some people make light of thc statement that thc miners of all the southern country contemplate a strike for  higher wages, but time will tell. The  reason they have not struck before was  they hoped the Sloean owners would  grant the demand of ?3.50, and if that  was granted lhey would havo a strong  lever to force like terms in thc south.  When they find that the demand will  not be met hero, a general strike may  be looked for.  2,500 MINERS  To uorlcm the Mu.ilhfeious Mines of Hritisli Columbia,  at iJiu fullotvinj,' pni.us pur d.iy of I'ljjlit lunir<>:���������  H.iml Dnllur., $j.cn  M ictuiiu   Men, 3 50  Miners m bliafts, J50 to $4 oa  Carmen, s 50 to   300   *  Slio\ ellers, 2.50  Laborers, 2.50  lihcksnnthb, 3S������to   -j.co  Tim ben noil, 3 so 10    4.00  Apply 10 THE SII.VIZK-LEAD MINUS ASSOCIATION',  S.imlon, llritish Columbia.

They were known ns  the ".rneohs," and the males vi oro all tall,  powerful men and stark hunters, who followed Kniuo clear to lho Canadian frontier.  Jim, tho youngest, was the nest known.  ,    In 1863 lie was guidiiifr a party of {,'on-  'tleiiibri .'from"'Ni4w, York,. among  whom  was tho lato Roscoo C6'nkling, through tha  wilds of  Klk county.    A camp was mado  on tho head wators of the Clarion, nnd tho  party made preparations to hunt for duor  the nost day.    Jacobs  had boon ...'ranging  ' arau/id  tho camp  and camo  hi lato.    He  (vnsinoro than usually silent and, sullen.  After ti timo passed in smoking he startlod  tho others  by declaring  that he intended  leaving   them 'at once and gave directions  toflnd McCarty's trading post, threo miles  down tho river, whorb another guide would  be had.'  After some questioning ns to his  sudden' resolution  lie explained "he had  .    seen  a  big  white  wolf, and  It was had  luodicino for  Injuns," so, gathorihg up  his traps nnd calling hi.s two dogs, ho disappeared in tho darkness of the woods.  Nest morning McCnrty 's post was found  without any difficulty and tho party hospitably received. U'lioy told thoir story,  and McCnrty, a man of 05, who had passed  his lifo on tho frontier, said: "So Jim  seed tho whito woJf again. I've heard of  (tho varmint 50 years ago, but nover seed  tt, nor do I know of uny white man who  lias,,hut Jim has no doubt, for ho ain't o  Uar or hoastor, and all tho Injuns think it  bad hick."  Twenty milos east of JloCarty's, on  Boaver crook, lived Rush Kemble.

But his luck changed. Tho shoop  began to disappear. II3 sot traps, watched  at night, whilo' his son scouted around  with his powerful hear dogs. It was no  uso; tho shoop woro lakon.- Ono day ho  found on tho soft mud on the bank of tho  creek a number of tracks, unmistakably  wolf.  Ono dny in September whilo lio.wo.8ab-  Eont from   homo  his daughter  liuth was  ��������� feeding .their one pig.    Suddenly sho saw  tho  chickoiiB   soainperhig. for  tho   barn,  while behind was an animal liko an enor-  Tuous dog, gaunt, covorcd with rough hair  and puro wliiro in color.    It had caught n  " chiekon  nnd was dovonriiig  it.    JFnll of  terror, sho rushed into (ho house.    Catoh-  ing up a riflo and. calling tho houso dog,  sho <crept   around  tho  cabin.    The  wolf  'c.uglit another ohicken.    The dog was on  old boar hound and gauio.    Ho rushed on  tho benst, whilo Ruth, resting tho gun on  one of tho. projecting logs of the  cabin,  took a long aim li'ntl flrod. . Tho wolf gave  a leap in the.uir and camo down plump ou  the dog. ''..Iuia'n instant tho boast hod disappeared and  poor,Boston' lay!dead with  his.head half bittou off.  Tho. nest day Komblo and'two others  started out to hunt down tho "white  ' wolf." As a luro tho foroquarter of a deer  hud booh hung in the woods a fow miles  away, nnd in the early morning thoy found  this gono and on tho slightly frozon snow  woro plainly seen tho big tracks of tho  wolf. Thoy had 12 fine dogs who hunted  by soont, and nil woro confident that "Jim  Jacobs' white wolf's hido would como to  ihe tnnyard."  Tho trail led northwest ovor a range of  hills oovprod with laurel, utterly storiio.  Tho dogs ran freely, keeping thonion woll  up to tho collar. About midday thoy  ',; ipund pheasant feathers on the trail���������the  wolf had snapped tipoiio for lunch. Thoir  gamo was heading for Bakers' rocks.  It was growing dark as thoy entered a  wild i-aviuo, ono side faced with rocks, full  of holos. Hero thoy rosolvod to camp. If  tho wolf holed, thoy could get at him at  daybreak, and If ho tried to got away tho  dogs would glvo warning. A firo was  built mid oaob man divided, his roast venison and corn dodger with his dogs. It  grow bitter cold, and vory llttlo sloop was  had. At daylight thoy began to scout  around, nnd shortly a wild burst of trumpets from tho pack showed they woro run-_  fling on sight.  ; "Soo, look on tho ������op of yon rook I    Ja-  aobs was right.   It's white."  Although there was no sun, it was perfectly clear, and there was tho wolf soon  through tho thin wintry air.

Inside of an hour tho dogs found tho trail.  Tho dogs soomod confident mid ran at racing spqod. Tho top of tho ridgo was covered with n scant growth of scrub oak, and  on the rlvor sido was shoor rock down CO  ieet to tho water. Bight on a point of  socks that jutted out into tho river tho  "whito wolf" came to bay. Komblo plainly saw a huge, gaunt animal covorcd with  bristling white hair. Tho rod eyes glowed  With firo, and for an instant,he lost his  Sead. Tho dogs were getting tho worst of  It, and ho fired. A suddon flash, nnd he  plainly saw tho wolf disappear over the  toco of tho oliff.  All rushed to the spot. There was not  at traoo. At tho foot of the cliff tho river  was open. No splash was hoard. . .For an  liour thoy watched and then inado a circuit, but tho dogs seemed indifforont and  made no offort.  And this was. tho last of Jim Jacobs'  "white wolf."

''What's that?" asks the stranger lo  Roosland  the first  time  bo hears  tho  ore  thundering down   tho chute from  the  War  .Eagle   mine;  and  tlie  Ross-  ��������� lander answers with   tho pride of  an  inhabitant of  a solid  camp:  " That 'I That's  dividends."  The  mining  camp   that  has divided  ]\i}vrs  find ithe   camp  that  has  only  properties "which  will  mako amine''  are   very    different    things,"   says  a  Rossland    letter.    And   a   camp   liko  Rossland,   which   hats   passed   through  its  period 'of   depression   and  showed  Uutt it has  bottom,  is very likely  lo  prove a surprise "to the 3~i"ranger from  the .East, who usually expects to find  a few shacks stuck on a hill, along with  one general store, a log-cabin hotel and  twenty-five saloons. As for tho saloons,  he ia  right,  but ho finds  also, as an  addendum to these and  the mines,  a  city,   of 8,000    people, regularly    laid  streets, several excellent buildings, electric lights,   water   works,   shops   of  all kinds, ������ive banks, plenty of hotels,  and  a club   with   a ������20,000  home.   Six  years ago  the place was a hillside of  rocks and  trees,  one of a dozen such  roundabout.  The history of Rossland is the history of most camps. In 1890-91 two  French-Canadians prospecting among  the mountains, chanced on this hill  and staked out claims. In one day thoy  located the present rich mines, Le. Roi,  Englishmen-   Most  of    litem  live   on  money from home and tare everywhere  known as remittance men, 'while their  passion for golfing caps give litem their  other   designation   ol   the   sma'll    hat  crowd.   Some of  them  lacking remittances come out' armed with letters of  introduction,  carrying   the   signatures  of any  thing  from -a Marquis to a K.  C.M.tr.  These  letters    aro  usually   to  the  manager  of   tho  British  America  Cot-poration, the 'big London company,  operating   in    British   Columbia,   and  an   the.   bearer  always  imagines  ho   is  to fall into a high place and large income, his  talk with  tho manager is  A DECI.UE1J SURPRISE. ���������'  " Ah, yes," says tho manager, after  preliminary    courtesies.   " Now,    as  a  matter of fact, what can you do, Mr.  Smith?"  " Well,  I can  do  almost anything."  " Ilave you a technical  mining education?'".  " No."  " Have you a profession ?'"  " No, but I'm a graduate of Oxford.  Lord So-and-So's son and I wero chums  there,  and  that's   how I got  this  lel-  tor "  " All,  yes. Delightful   place, Oxford.  Now, 1 beg pardon, you know, but have  you any  money   to  invest?"  " No."  " Well, Mr. Smith, I say to you as  to dozens of men before you, if you  have money enough to pay your passage out ot here, Ido it. It's the, hardest country to starve in thai I know.  The only work I can give you1 is manual labor in the mines, ore sorting at  as ono said. In these mora advanced  days, when afternoon teas are heard  of in British Columbia, ruining camps,  there are those who object to this'kind  of minister, who ,say that he can't  preach and knows nothing of doctrine;  Lhat he shouldn't drink and that it's  wicked to fight. But the miners still  seem to -think that a parson is about  right who will si.t u,p all night witli  their sick children, or ride twenty-five  miles to nurse a man wilh a broken  lug, cvon if ha doesn't care anything  about  ritualism,  Thus, though a pioneer like Father  Pat has scon great'change;* in twenty  years, thoy are.' nothing to the coming  changes of 1he next twenty. The amount of Eastern and English capital  invested in UrJlish Columbia is prodigious, and the province is being opened Up with amazing rapidity, With  the extension of tho Canadian Pacific  lines will come a much greater population, and, women, in particular, will  probably go  into   the  country  in  far  sow imimi to mm,  GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OF THE BAT-  '  TLE BY AN EYE WITNESS.  ������������������*  In Illiisii-nllon or (he I'I^IiIIiik <i".-ll!H<s  of Her Jinjc-Hlj'n Imllun rni-cei-tUmi!

The message was  Hashed down accordingly, and soon  three ammunition mules appeared at  the fool of thc steep climb about half  a mile below us, where the track skirled tho side, of u very precipitous hill.  Tho leading mule came lo a very bad  bit of path, did not liko the look Ol it,  jibbed, backed, got his hind legs over  the edge, made franlic efforts to io-  oover his  tooting, was  dragged  down  S  ES^^Te^E'^   ^ ^-^^f the ammunition boxes  5>2 50 a day. We have several Oxford  graduates there now, and plenty of  oilier good men. But as for. a position,  at present, we have down 250 names  of men wanting what clerical positions  there are in the company. Again, I  tell you, get out of here', if you can."  And the manager is right. In mining camps there is nothing but mining and the professions, unless a. man  has capital, and for an educated man  unacquainted with mining, as for others, the choico is between day labor  and starvation. Thus  it is that many  War Eagle  and.Centre Star.  Having   0f  lhes>e penniless  English lads leave  no money, for recording purposes, they   the country at once, but somo remain  offered a man. in an adjacent settlement his choice of the claims for lho  recording fees. He chose the Le Roi.  Thus a mine now computed at ������9,000,-  COO first sold foe ������1:2.50. Tho Frenchmen, being men of no money, considered  the $40,000 which they finally got out  of thei claims lo be a fair) clean up, yet  to-day thoir hillside is calculated to  have a producing power of ������15,000,000  yearly, under improved working conditions. A year or two after the locating of the claims an American gen-  oral camo in, bringing along his cook.  This cook  is  THE FATTIER OF ROSSLAND  and lho man for whom the town is  named. He staikod, out the present  town site, and has found the slakes  an excellent investment, so far having made some $3U),00Q out of the sale  of the real  estate.  Such instances aro nothing, however,  in a country where paupers become  millionaires within the year. Tw.o years  ago a miner in Rosslaud was borrowing a few cents to gat food, while the  other day ho was entertaining Spokane, the Mecca of miners who have  made their fetajke, at a largo ball.  Twenty-four months and the hungry  miner is* worth ������2,000,000. Some curious  stories ark told of the Le Roi mine.  For instance, one man, a tailor,, doing  business in Spokane, had a Rossland  customer who wanted a. suit'of clothes,  but had nothing to pay with, save  shares of the Le Roi, than unheard of.  After persuasion the tailor gave the  Rosslander aT suit and received G,000  shares of .Le Roi. Ho put them away,  and forgot about them until months  later, when a mining friend asked him  to invest a trifle in developing a gold  claim. .'    ,  " Not much," said the tailor. " 1 Was  only in one mining deal. in my life  and I got hung up for a forty dollar  suit. Got- paid with a, lot of shares  of some blamed mine thai! ain't worth  a darn, I guess. Whore are those shares  anyway?" Herouted them out of an  old desk and held'them up, contemptuously. ,*." Thar they are," said he, "are  they  worth  anything,   anyhow?"  As the shares were bringing SOeach  at the time, the tailor made $35,900  on his suit of clothes. I(t is related  tliat another man, who originally 'put  In a capital of ������2,000 for an interest  in tlie mine, sold his shares after the  property had been worked, for ������1,04-3,-  000, besides having received somo  880,000  IN'   DIVIDENDS,  This   reads  more   like    romance  than  mining,  yet  it  is  quite overshadowed  by what is  told of the earnings of a  certain  other    man's    dollars.      This  man, with his partner, -used to own a  bar in  Rossland.   A  customer,  owing  tbem a bill of $100, 'came lo Ihenj one  day, said he had ino money, and offered  40,000  Bhares  of Le Roi  stock for  tho debt.   I,t being  the only thing  lo  do, tlie saloon men accepted what they  thought    a   worthless    security    and  wrote off the debt.   Now fit seems I hat  besides owning a bar in common, thoy  also had   a racehorse,   and  when   the  shares came ia one (of them persuaded  his partner (to give him ajl the horse,  the partner taking  all  the shares  as  equivalent.  To   do   this 'the  first  had  to make out thajt 'the animal was ailing but unfit  to Vace any more. Bui  summer coming on,  it turned out he  had   lied  'and   the   horse   that   season  won   52,500.   The   second   partner   got  furious, wished his shares at the devil,  and started  to  sue his partner. Not  long after  this,   second  man  sold his  4<J,00t) shares for $8 a share, thus realizing $'368,000 from an original amount  of $100.  Ijt  is   probably     the    chamces    like  the.se given by a mining country tha!  to taltv. what they -'can get, and very  pluckily they take it, loo. One  young follow, who had-come out with  letters from a Marquis well .known in  politics, and 'an equally well known  financier, look the job of shovelling  snow and washing bottles for the first,  winter. At the end of it hat time he  was encountered by the manager to  whom he had brought the letters, and  was asked what he thought ot the  country.  " Well," he said, slowly, as Ihough  loath to admit even so much defeat,  "I am just the least bit disappointed  in it, don't you know."  Somu Englishmen come out with  neither remittances nor introductions,  but only ,a beautiful confidence. One  such, swaggering around a day or  two after his arrival, was questioned as  to what he  was going to do.  "Oh," said he, in a matter-of-fact  way, "until I look around a bit I think  I shall become superintendent ot ono  of the large  mines here.'"  The " dollars in front," Englishmen  was the kind, who, it is related,  SAVED THE CITY OF SPOKANE,  in the early days. Some fifteen years  ago it was a town'of 2,500 people, with  no future and every one dead broke.  At this juncture in came a;n Englishman with $30,000. He was induced to  deposit this in the bank, which at the  honest female labor in South British  Columbia, the. country dopending entirely on Chinamen lor cooking and  domestic service. For tliis work they  get anywhere from  ������20 TO 535 A MONTH,  and women domestics would command  like prices.  These Chinamen, while cleanly and  industrious, are, as a rule, surly follows, and liable to startle housekeepers by their vagaries. One Rossland  woman, for instance, had occasion to  teach her Chinese cook how to make  a new cake, and for the finsti time  made'it herself boforo him, The recipe  called for six eggs, and after she had  opened four there chanced to bo two  bad ones, which she naturally threw  away. Some weeks after, during which  tho cook had made the caka excellently  several times, she happened to be in  the kitchen when he was o,t tho cake  again. The Chinaman opened four  eggs, then threw two away and thon  went on.  " What did you throw those eggs  away for?" she asked.  " All, me do likeo you," said John,  wilh a surprised stare. And it turned out ho did "'it each' time, he mado  the cake. So much for their imitative  f aouj ty.  Another woman of Rossland had a  puppy given her, which she turned  over to her Chineso servant to look  after.  "John," sho said, "this puppy has  just been given to me. 1' want you| to  take him into" the kitchen and be very  careful of him."  "Me understand," said  John.  At dinner that night John brought  and rolled over and over down oul of  sight. Thc second mule promptly followed his example, deliberately and  without any fuss, nearly dragging a  driver down with him. Transport officers a/id others familiar with the ways  of tho mule will tell you that instances  are not unccuunon when muies, weary  of carrying heavy loads over frightful  tracks, grow sick of life, and purposely  commit suicide over tho nearest precipice. This looked remarkably like an  instance of it. The third beast, which,  by lhe way, wa.s not a mule, but a  long-legged weed of a pony, Jet. itself  be coaxed along a little further, then  look fright, reared up close to the  edge, fell backward and went down  nEAD OVER HEELS,  after the mules, with the last of the  Dorset s'reserve ainmunitimn.

Al  mo-ssage was flashed down (o General  Biggs Uiiat the troops could not advance. Tho engagement had lasted  now four hours and success seemed no  nearer than at the beginning. The  assault so far had failed, and failed  coinpicl>eJy. It ws 2 o'clock; none o������  the second division had advanced a  slep beyoiid the, Kotal toward Khor-  appa, and things looked remarkably  ugly.  "THE GORDONS WILL TAKE IT."  Bul tho time and the men wore now  at hand. More than an hour before the,  Gordons had been ordered up] from Mama Khan, whete lheir long iange volleys can hardly have been very effective, to reinforce the attack, aud the  3rd Sikhs noi long after them. These  fresh troops had now climbod up to  within a few hundred yards; of the gap,  and a signaller brought a message to  our colonel from the general to say:  "The Gordons and the 3rd Sikhs- will  attack; Derbys and Guikhas in support; Dorsets in third line." Soon  after the red tabs of a staff officer  or two appeared, slaff officors up to  this point had been ccnspUuniu.ly absent, and we were ordered to withdraw our companies aside.

Spokane  is now a place of 40,000 people, tlie  New York of northern Washington  and Southern British Columbia, to  which many miners retire when they  have made':their stake. Hero they live  in much splendor, in houses furnished  .throughout by -.the-decorator and surmounted by as many turrets as: possible.  In a country of so much drinking  and gambling men attend pretty thoroughly to their own damnation, and  some one else must look to their ^sal-  vation. While there are clergymen of  several denominations at Rossland the  English Church parson is thu clerical  character of the place. This is an old  Cambridge man, a great oarsman and  football pln.yer in his day, who has  been in British Columbia for twenty  years, and is known far and wide as  Father Pat. Father Pat is distinctly  western timber for a western lund,  prides himself on being one of the  boys,' and will take his whiskey at tho  bar with .you whenever you ask him.  By sheer I'ow.c of character he made  himself respected and loved iu the  rougher' (lays of British Columbia,  when a man of moro dogma and less  strength of body would have failed,  In th^so days his physical fights were  many, for the miner.s thought one parson much liko another. It is said that  one of his first experiences was tho  attempt to hold services in a saloOn.  There was no place else in the camp  to hold: the meeting, so h& walked into  the largest saloon in the place on  Sunday morning, and remarked that  he was'  GOING  TO  HOLD A  SERVICE  there.   When    the    miners   got over  their    daze   one   big    fellow   stepped  out,  "You don't hold no service here, unless you lick |,me first," he remarked.

Next B, D und E companies  wero ordered up to tho gap. U had  miarche.d out of camp in tlwy rear of  tho battalion, and E immediately preceded them. [This order had been  maintained throughout, so .that D  went up first, followed at intervals by  E aud 13.  As these companies scrambled up to  reach the point where the siope lessened, filly yjrds or so beneaLh the gap,  they came within view, for the first  time at close quarters, of the enemy's  position'and of the state of things at  the gap. Right opposiLe, only threo  hundred and fifty yards' away, rose a  line of almost sheer cliff four hundred  feet above us, lined for a lengtJi of  soma four hundred yards with an invisible enemy whose rifles and jezails,  mostly rifles, wero all  '-'"'- LEVELLED AT THE GAP. ,  Away to our right, out of-sight from!  tlhis spot, the cliff took a sharp turn  backward and became less precipitous,  and it was round this turn that lho  track eventually followed led to tho  top. The gap itself, formed by the  watercourse narrowing lo a funnol end  a,t the top, was bounded on tho left by  a large perpendicular piece- of rock,  and' on tho right by a jagged, stony  crest with an impossible descent on the  further side. But the most hopeless  part of the whole thing was the frightful block in the gap., Thore must  ho.ye been.some three hundred or four  hundred men jammed; together there,  sevoral wounded among them. ' Right  in tho mouth ol: thej gap, and plastered  against the rock oh the left, squatted  a number- of Gurkhas, Officerless, dogged and sullen, thirsting to revenge  the slaughter of their comrades.  WINNING A VICTORIA CROSS. '  . The heroism of Colonel Travers's gallant regiment, who bore the brunt of  the first assault and suffered more  heavily than any other regiment engaged, had not bean, so generally recognized as it deserved, immediately  behind them, completing the block,  was a muss of Dorsots. So densely  packed were all these men,'and so'encumbered with wounded, tliat, until a  line through them was cleared, as was  done for tho Gordons, it was only possible for any fresh troops to elbow a  way through slowly one by oney and  the continuous stream necessary to  carry the place with a rush, the only  chance.of success, was then a physical  impossibility. Nevertheless Captain  Smith, who commanded D Company,  the first of ours to com* up, forced  his way through the mass, and, follow-;  ed by his subaltern Pennell arid three  or four more men of the company who  managed to struggle through at short  intervals,.made a dash across the gap  in'to the open, under a murderous hail  of bullets. Before he had gone more  lihjaa a few yards he fell, shot through  the head, and then men behind him  were mowed down, Private Dunn be-  iu gkilledon the spot and Private Pom-  'berth mortally wounded. Pennell, not  knowing his captain was dead, won a  Victoria Cross by making gallant efforts to carry hi'nu back under cover.  He got hirm some way with difficulty,  and seeing some men lying on the  ground, called to them to assist. No  answer came at first, until [a man of  the Dbrsets lifted his head; and answered, "Wo are all wounded, sir,, except  those that are dead."      Then    seeing.  Gordons will take  s cool assurance  nnd unbounded confidence in his regiment helped lo tuin impending disaster into brilliant success,'it was done  by Colonel Mathi'a's few. strong words  that afternoon. Roused lo fierce en-  th'usia&m by their leader s stirring  speech and by the familiar, skirl of the  pipes, the Highlanders leaped to lho  assault'. . JJi> the3p came, a long, thin  siring of men with stern, set faces,  stumbling, scrambling up the steep,  in a frenzy of ocuragc, not to be gainsaid, amid occasional spasmodic gasps  from the pipes and cheers lrom any  who had breath to utter, a sight' for  those who witnessed it  to i  REMEMBER AOX THEIR LIVES.  But no longer was the attack to be  attempted by the fruitless valor of  small detachincinils and driblets of, men  struggling through a crowded mass.  As the Gordons mearod lhe gap tbe  word was passe-d up and shouted along  lo "clear a line, for the Gordons," and  the miass above surged and swayed  apart, leaving a narrow pathway  clear.  The Gordons enjoyed lhe inestimable  -advantage of being to a certain extent  familiar with the ground, from having  descended from Dargai two days before  by the very path which they wero now  about to ascend. They therefore know,  that  when  once  the  dangerous space  to   the  foot   of   the cliff  was  crossed "  the heights could bo scaled. Moreover,  shortly  before  the  Gordons'    advance  General  Kempster  had  asked   [lor    a  rapid artillery fire lo be concentrated  on the enemy's sangas, and' at this moment a perfect avalanche of shot and  shell broke from the eighteen guns on  tho    Kotal and swept over our heads  upon  the position.      Under    cover  of  this,  combined   with  a   torrent  oC independent fire from thc Dorsols, Derbys and Gurkhas, the Gordons streaui'-  ed through the gap one after another  a's fasti as they could clamber up, and  dashed' across: the   open     space' be-;  yond.   -.        . . (. "' ... ���������..-,. .'���������'.:';;.' ���������.'" ,',���������'���������;.'  BULLETS WHISTLED. AND SPAT  all around thami as thick as ever, 'but,  though a large number were wounded,:'  fortune so far favored them  that only  one officer and two men -were actually  killed, a smaller number than that lost  by any of the other regiments. 'Probably  the enemy's  fire grew wild; and  inaccurate under the storm of shrap-    ���������  nel that rained upon their "sangas,.aided  by   the  sight   of the   now at fast  continuous   stream  of     men  pouring  through  the gap;  for  in quantity-at  least iit had not abated one whit.   In  a momentary pause, after the fust two  groups of Gordons had passed, a coav-  pany of the Derbys stared . up and.followed them, and  then    another,    and  tliien, as from a dam let loose, tho long  pent up mass at the gap broke through  and an  indiscriminate crowd of'Gordons, Derbys, Dorsots, Sikhs ami Guikhas wore rushing pellmoll across lhe  open. , . ���������  The day was won. Whether it was,  as some: think, (hat the enemy's supply  of ammunition was running short after the five hours' fight, or whether  they were cowed by lheir failure to  stay the, advance- to tbe fool: of their  position, lhey broke and fled when the  leading troops were si ill two bundled  yards below them; , The final storming  of the steep track to the crest, which  a few.resolute men amply, supplied '". ,  with ammunition might still have  made impossible, was accomplishtd unresisted. When, at three o'clock pre-���������  cisely, the heights wera crowned, beyond some splashes of blood and heaps  of empty cartridge cases, no sign was  visible of Afridi or Orakzai, alive or  dead. This stxunri'to preclude, the belief that their losses can have, 'been  very heavy. Ours, amounted all io'd  to a hundred and ninety-nine, including three officers killed, ten wounded,  one fatally, and thirty-three man killed.     '   ".

Uncle Jerry Foster was too stingy  to live, and everybody knew it, But  everybody didn't know how poor Aunt  Belsey, his wife, had to manage and  contrive and s_imp to got along.  She never had tho handlfn' of any  money. Even tho bull.or and egg  money, that most every farmer's wife  has for her own use, all went into  Uncle Jerry's pockets; and if she  wanted it new gownd or a bonuit or a  pair o' shoes���������I hadn't orler say if sho  wanted 'em, but if she must have 'em,  and there wa'n't no possible airthly  way for him to skin out o' gettin' 'em  ���������thon Uncle Jerry would' go to the  store with her and buy''em and.pay  for 'cm, jest as if she was a child or  an ijiot, and incaperable o' dowin' business on hor own book.  If Aunt Betsey hadn't a' had the best  disposition in the world, she wouldn't  'a' stood it all them years. As it -was,  it wero on her, and told on her fearful.  Though Uncle Jerry was one o' the  richest men in town, she might 'a' been  the wife of the poorest, and miser'blest,  bo fur's any outward indication was  '���������' cbnsarned���������or inward indications either���������for she was alwers halt starved,  and wa'n't nbthin' but skin and bones,  as you might say.  You see, everything they raised, on  the farm that orter have gone to furnish thoir table bountiful^ sech as beef  oreaturs,pigs, turkeys, hens, eggs and  fruit, and vegetables, was either sold  at the. store or sent off on the cars to  the city markets; and the. money that  como from,'em was put' in the bank an'  kep' thore. Pretty much all their Jivin'  the year round was salt pork and  pertaters, with now 'n' then a biled  dish.  And the wust on't was that as Uncle  Jerry got older his stinginess grew  upon, him, and every year he mado it  harder 'n' harder for Aunt Betsey, ter  git along. She never had nothin' ter  do with I That was her cverlastin',  continewal complaint. Sometimes she  had thought seriously of . applyin' to  ' the town, to see if that wouldn't shame  her husband into bein' more.liberal.

Wall, as I said, Llnclo Jerry grew  wuss 'n' wuss, and come along towards Thanksgivin' he got a bran'-new  crocket fer savin' inle-his head.  It. was just at family,., devotions one  morntn', jest beiuic tne readin',- that  he divulgated,it to his wife.  ,He finds the place in Nehemiar���������he  alwers reads the long chapters in fall  and winter, and. kep' the short ones,  the Psallms and sech, for.burryin' time  ���������he finds the place and puts his Ihum"  in to keep it, then, drawin' on a long  face, he looks at Aunt Belsey over his  spo'taoles, and, says lie:���������  "Wife, I aire of a notion' that thia  'ere Thanksgivin' business is all foolishness I Seems if it must be. a sin in  the sight o' the Lord to eat so imu'ch  one da|y in the year. 1 don't believe  it's necessary to make pigs 'n' gluttons . of ourselves in order ';to have  . thankful hearts ; and if : w.e go to  meetin', arid so'on, why ain't that  enough?"  Aunt Betsey didn't say nothin" jest  set and looked at him kinder holpless,  . with her. hands'in her lap, and he went  ��������� on:���������   -'....,;  "I reckon .'we'll sell the turkey this  year and. have our usual dinner, 'long's  there ain't no children comin' hoine,  nor nothin"."  .... Then he began to read; a hull chapter  full of long, hard names, andhis pronunciation was enough to make a cat  laugh. But Aunt Betsey didn't laugh ;  there ain't no laugh in her no time,;  and that mornin' she felt, uncommon  num.'.      ".'.'.-  All through the readin' sho set there  with her hands in her lap, not exaclty  thinkin", but kinder wonderin' and  grievin'. And when they kneeled down  to pray she kept on wonderin' rnore'n  over. She won<lered what she had lo  be thankful for, anyway. "Now, if Ellen could come home!" Ellen was their  daughter, all the child they hud in the  world, and .she lived so far away that  she couldn't afford to coine home and  bring the children���������bein' she was a  widdor and poor���������but, oh, how her  mother-did wanter see herl "What did  she care about turkey and plum: pud-  . din' if Ellen and the .children couldn't  eat it with her? Yes, the money might  as well be put in the bank, she didn't  cane." So she thought on and on, not  hardly sensiri'  the prayer a mite.  She went out to her work, in the  kitchen feelin' all broke up. Shedidn't  know why she should be, 'less she'd  been kinder secretly hopiu' to have  Ellen and the children. But she had  no business to,; she might a' known  better. ': , ������������������  But it-was a great, while sence she'd  seen Ellen, and tho prospeot of the  lonesome, miser'ble Thanksgivin' was  ���������more than she could bear. There  wa'n't nothin' to her-, no time, as you  might say, and this was the last straw  ��������� on the came 1'^ back. :'T any rate, all  at once she give out and had to go ter  bed. i  The next mornin' she couldn't get  up, but Uncle Jerry didn't think much  about it, s'posed she'd, be; up bimeby;  and so ho shuffled round and warmed  up some.tent 'n- got a bite o' ^omethin'  to eat and went out to work; But  when he come in to dinner, there lay  ms wife jest tho same, as if she hadn't  no thoughts o' gettiu'  up.  "Wall, wall 1" says Uncl^'Jerry, "I  wanter know if you're goin' tor bb  sick I I'm 'fraid. youha.hu been careful enough about your diet, what have  youe't?"  Upon this poor Aunt Betsey turned  her taioe to the wall and, cried like a  baby. She didn't say a word, jest laid  aud cried, it v/a'u't oltcn she cried  aud it scairt hor husband.

She see how it was with Aunt. Betsey  in a minute. She's awful cute about  some things, Mis' Hopkins is, and she  ain't afraid o' no man Jivin".  "Now," sho says to herself, bracin'  up, "now is the time to strike for Aunt  Betsey's future good 'n' welfare," and  she meant to make a thurrer job on't.  " Uncle Jerry," says she, matter of  fact as you please, "your wife's a veryi  sick woman, and' she's goin' lo die1  right off, I'm afraid, 'less we hyper  round, and do somethin', and do it  quick. But fust I'd better step over  'n' fetch  the doctor."  Uncle Jerry was wonderfully look*  down. All of a sudden he realized that  his wife: was invalooable to him; he  Celt that he could not get along without her, nohow. He:was as anxious to  havo the doctor as Mis' Hopkins was,  and told'her to hurry and bring him.  So she went���������he lived.near by���������und  sho says to him:���������'  .

Don't, I beg on iye, raise her  up to ,live! on in the same old skimpy,  miser'ble way,! Bettor let'hor die and  done with1 ii."  They discussed and considered over  the matter for a few minutes,' then  Went  together  to  the house.  They found Aunt Betsey layin' jist  the same only she stopped oryin'. The  doctor, examined her and diaggernosed  her case.as woiL 's ho could, then ho  motioned Uncle Jerry out. into the  other room arid shet the door behind  ham.  They talked there a good half hour,  and when Uncle Jerry came out he  looked as if he'd been drawed through  a 'riothole: He looked like a man who  had been riiade.to "renounce the world,  theflesh and the devil, and all his  stinginess to once," Mis' Hopkins said,  laughing in her sleevo.  Afterward Dr. Cross gave her a full  account of that 'ere interview ; arid it  was interesting.and, as it turned out,  satisfactory to all -concerned.  It seems the doctor took him.awful  solium and; in;;dead earriest, and says  he, ���������' to  begin "with :���������  "Uncle Jerry, do you set high vally  on.. your wife's life?"  "High vally on my wife's life?" says  Uncle Jerry, red in the face.., "Of  course I dew. What you talkin,'  about?" " '  "She has been a devoted and lovin'  parduer," goes on the doctor, calm's a  clock ; "she has been kind and equi-  nomical, nussed you in sickness, 'n*  shared, your labors in health, hain't  she?"  "Yes, yes! of course I What in uaiur'  be you' drivin' at?" says Uncle Jerry,  gettin'. excited.  The doctor, only waved his hand/ to  enjine "silence, and went on, kinder  dreamy now, as if talkin' to himself:���������  I was here when, you fetched her  home a bride. 1 remember how handsome she was ; piump as a pa'tridge,  fresh as a flower; arid as laughin' and  chipper a girl as I 'bout ever see,  Changed, terribly changed, ain't she's"  turnin' to Uncle Jerry and feelin' in  his pocket fer his han'k'chif to wipe  away the tears. "It does beat all bow  she's changed," says, he.  "Chaxigedl" says Uncle Jerry, all of  "a fluster, "of course she's changed!  Why, we've been riiarried goin' on  twenty-five year! You can't expect  a woman to stay eighteen all her  life?". '���������':  "That's so," 'lowed the doctor,  'pearia' to' reflect. "But she's alwers  been pretty well; hain't she? . Been  able: .to work most 6' the time ?"' ,  "Never sick a day in her life before,  except when Ellen was born," answers  Uncle Jerry proudly. "She's a healthy  woman, I call her,"  "H'm, yes. Has an excellent constitution, no doubt," says the doctor,  noddin' his head upprovin'. Then ho  seemed Cor a minute to have got lost  in thought.  :  "I know," he said at last", "that farmer's wives grow old pretty fast as  a gineral , thing; break down young,  don't they ? But, Uncle Jerry," squar-  in' round on him suddenly and lookin'  him iu the eye, "I want to ask you to  compare your wife's looks with the  looks of other women of her age in  town, no handsomer,1 no healthier than  what she was when, you married her  and tell me if you think there's a Alif-  ferouce'.'f ..; ���������  Then he mentioned a dozen or so jest  as it happened, most of 'em slick, fat,  comfortable, happy lookin' women,  and says he:��������� ���������      .1  "Now, they're different from your  wife and why I ask you fair and  candid, why shouldn't she look as  happy, be as happy and make as good a  'pearance every way as them women?  And why is it that she. ha^ took to  her bed in tho prime of, life and don't  wanter live no longer? For I find  that's about the way it is with her."  He stopped, and Undo Jerry sot  there pale as a statu'. Ho didn't answer back a word, jest set there with  his head   dropped  down on  his  chist,  as-ifi he was stunned or somethin', and  the "doctor, went out and left him alone.  ' When Doctor. Cross went back to  Aunt Betsey he prescribed for hor���������not  much medicine, but plenty, of good  nussin' and good feedin'���������wine and  beef tea and chicken broth, to begin  with; and ho left it to Mis' Hopkins to  see that she had 'em. Then at last he  leans over Aunt Betsey and says, real  cheerful:  "Now, you must brace right up, Aunt  Betsey, and try to get well. Your husband can't get' alongTwithout you, noways, and 1 guess he'll make things as  easy and pleasant as ho can for you  if you'll only get well."  She hadn't no idea, what he really  meant; so she only smiled, kinder sad,  'but her great eyes spoko volumes,  She didn't wanter live���������not yet���������-and  .the doctor knew it.  When Uncle Jerry camo back he  went up to the bod and sot down beside' his wife, and:looked at her. She  was asleep, and Mis' Hopkins thought  he must 'a' realized how pitiful she  looked, for she seen him draw his hand  acrosl his eyes two or three times on  the  sly.  Bimeby he got, up and went out to  Mis' Hopkins and, says he:���������  .   " What    was     the    doctors  orders ?  What can I do  to help ye?"  ' 'He ordered nourish in' food, and  wine and so on," site says, " and I  guess ^the fust tiling you may kill a,  chicken, if you're minter, and git it  ready for the broth; then go over to  Jim Jackson's and buy a quart or so of  ���������the oldest grape wine o' his'n. ;She'll  be awake by the time you get back  with it, I guess."  Uncle Jerry 'didn't so much as wink  at mention of the chicken, but when  she spoke o' the wine so offhand and  matter o' course he drawed in his  breath once or twice kinder spasmo-  dicky, but he never, opened his head.  He killed tlie chicken ��������� and got it  ready fer the pot, as spry and handy as  a woman, then look a gallon jug and  started off to Jim' Jackson's after the  wine. ( ���������"  When the broth was ready Uncle  Jerry asked ..if he might take it in; so  Mis' Hopkins filled one of tho chiny  bowls that was Aunt Betsey's mar's  and set in a plate with- a cracker or  two, and he took 'em ajong.  The broth .was good and strong, and  when Aunt Belsey tasted on't she  looked at her husband real kinder  scairt, and, says she:���������  " Where did this 'ere como from ?"  And ho lau'ghed and says: " It's  made out o' one of our best Plymouth  Rocks ; is it good?"  A wonderin', quiverin' smile hovered  for a minute on to her poor face ; sho  didn't know what to make on't. But  when he lugged in the jug o' wine and  poured out a full half a tumbler ���������.'full  and.handed it to her, her eyes fairly  stuck out of her head with astonishment.  "Drink it: it'll doyou good," says he  "It's Jim' Jackson's oldost grape wine  you've heard tell on."  " Why���������why, husband !" she whispered, " didn't it cost an awful sight  q'  money ?"  " Only three dollars a gallon," he answered, tryin' to smile, but lookin'  rather ghastly. She sipped it slow,  eyein' him 'over, the top, o'the tumbler  as she done so ; but pretty soon she set  it down and spoke again. awful  meachin' and 'pealin", her, lips ,trem-  blin' as if she" was goin' to cry. ,  "���������." I'm sorrfy to 'put- you to so much  expense, husband. I'm afraid���������I'm  afraid it ain't wuth while I"  He got up and blowcd his nose with  all his might  and main.  " I want 'you to get well, Betsey, I  want you' to get well!" he managed to  say.  The strangest expression: come into  her face you ever see in any creature's,  Seemed as if she thought a|t fust:���������  " Yes, you want me 'to get1 well, so I  can work and save 'n' slave for you  again," and I s'pose she felt as if she  didn't wanter do it. Then, as if  struck: by somethin' in his looks, she  seemed to get a dim idee that ho was  different, and she tried to riiake out  how it was, but couldn't, and, bein' too  tired and weak to think much, she jest  shet her, eyes and give it all up.  That night Uncle Jerry harnessed  the old mare and wnnt over and got  Mary Buell'to come 'n' stay with '.em  a spell. Mary's an excellent good hand  in case o' sickness,' and bein' an old  maid, she's alwers ready to go aud dew  for the neighbours. She's a prime nuss  and housekeeper, ' and she's good company, too���������jest the kind of a person  to cheer Aunt Betsey up, . you know.  After Uncle Jerry got fairly started on the right track, it seemed to be  easy enough for him to keep a>-goin'.  When he began to spend his money he  seemed to almost enjoy it. The fact  was, he set the. world by'his wife, only  he never realized it 'till the thought  o' losin' her and the doctor's rakiri'  down brought him to his senses. He.  see that1 if ho wanted to get her up  again he. must make her happy and offer her inducements to live. So ho set  about it in  earnest.  Mary Buell said sho never see a  changoder man that what he was, all  through.  TJbero    was  jest   about  a    week'   to  Thanksgivin'   now, "and   he  and  Mary  put their heads together to make that  Thanksgivin' a day that Aunt Betsey'd  remember as >ong as she lived.  ���������Fust: thoy bought a nice easy-chair  and a lounge for the settih'-room, so  that Aunt Betsey might be comfortab'e  when she begun to set up, as she did  right uway. Then they had Miss  Trim, the dressmaker, como over and  fit her a pretty flannel wrapper and  help Mary make it. When it was finished they sewed some lace in the neck  and sleeves, and it was nice and ladylike enough for anybody. When Uncle  Jerry fust see her in it he actewally  blushed and loooked as bashful n' awk-  ard as if he'd come a-courtin'.

She sat there, blamin' herBelf and  thinkin', what a poor weak kind of a  mother, she was,' till ���������tho tears rolled  down her cheeks. Then, all to once,  she heard a noise outside.

ICumekawa,  of Kobe, who, like every other intelligent Japanese, desired that his funeral should be attended by ceremonies appropriate to his rank and social  position. In order that he might not  be disappointed in this respect, having, reached 'his, seventy-seventh year,  and feeling that his days were numbered, he determined to havo his funeral in advance and make! the arrangements himsolf. On the day appointed  his relatives and friends were'invited  to his house and gathered around an  ompty coffin with all trie, paraphernalia of mourning and engaged iri the  most ^elaborate Buddhist ceremony  that could be devised.' Mr. Kurne-  kawa sat at the head of the casket  and watched with interest all that  was going on.  After tho ccromonies' at the bouse  were concluded, a procession was formed,, winch marched through tlie principal streets to the cemetery. Mr.'  Kuiuokawa walkodiu front of his own  coffin. The 'floral offerings woro  numerous aud beautiful.  The Kobe City Band led (ho procession and played modern airs, while at  intervals groups ot dancing girls and  members of the theatrical profession,  .���������wlho performed pantomime allegories  to illustrate the nobility of Mr. Kume-  kawa's character and the loss that  was suffered by tbe community at his  death. Just before reaching the gates  of the cemetery the procession was  halted, and several photographs were  taken. ..After-the coffin had been  lowered into the grave and cove-red  with floral offorings, tho funeral  party proceeded to the Jinko Club,  whoro an elaborate feast was served,  and speeches eulogistic of Mr. liume-  kawa were delivered by several of his  friends. Mr. Kuihekawa was thoroughly satisfied wilh the success of  his funeral, although it cost him' a  large sum] of money.  ; THE FUTURE UNFOLDED.

Has the sea serpent at last been captured ? That is the question residents  of Victoria, British Columbia, are  asking. Three thousand persons have  seen the monstor. Not one has been  able to recognize it as belonging to  any known species of tho fish or reptile family.  The man who captured it, when he  saw it1 in the wajterv thought it must  bo at least twenty feet long. Gruat  was his surprise when actual measurement proved that it was less than  eight feet long. Pictures and descriptions of the monster seem to indicate'  that it is a variety of the ferocious  wolf fish, a common article of diet  among the natives of Iceland. Not that  the residents of Victoria aro ready to  believe this. So firmly convinced are  they that a new monster of the deep  has beeri captured that affidavits have  been taken of the inethod in which ,  (lie fish or serpent, was taken in the  Euklatat Rapids, on the southern  coast   of  British   Columbia.  AFFIDAVIT A3 TO CAPTURE.  The following is a true copy of the  sworn statement regarding tho capture :  " These are the facts as to the  fight with the sea serpent, or wolf  fish, or whatever it may be:���������Three  of us were in a fifteen foot Indian  canoe, anchored in' the rapids, whioh  run about twenty miles an hour in  tlie spot where we were located. We  were engaged in fishing for codfish.  The man in the bow, named ' White-  Frenchman,' who has been fishing the  rapids ISr nine years, and who hasu't  any other name in these parts, was  just in the act of hauling in a-cod  on' (lie /line when the sea serpent poked, its head above the water and made  after tho'cod to devour it.  " As the inonster was coming direct  for tho boat, ' White-Frenchman,'  thought he would take no chances, and,  poising his gaff, thrust it into the  serpent's side two feet from its head.  Alter being landed in the boat the  animal or fish, made a desperate fight  for liberty and attacked the Frenchman who had wounded him.: The old  fisherman thereupon seized the canoa  paddle and struck at the monster's  head.  ' 'In a half stunned condition tho  creature then: seized the paddle' between its jaws and crushed it in two,  but   afterward   lay   quiet.  " The serpent was then taken quickly to land and thrown into a salt water tank' to keep it alive. The creaturo  was aftorward shipped to Vancouver,  British Columbia, where it was on exhibition for four; days alive in a tankj  but finally  died  from'its wounds.-  "When alive it came to the surface of the wa.ter constantly for' air, '  bub was for the most time underneath  (lie surface. Three thousand persons  have seen the animal; up to the present; and not one of them has ventured i to give tho creature a name or  classify  it.  "Sworn before me thisilSth day ot  September,  1899.  " A.  A.  ANDERSON,  Notary  Public  "SIMON RYAN,  ' D. H. FORBES.'"  DESCRITPION OF THE MONSTER.  This baby sea serpent, although only,  eight feet long and ten inches through  tlie thickest par., of its snake body,  possessed enormous strength, and in  fighting used its two sets of teeth, its  flippers^ as claws, and its muscular  body, snake fashion.  The snake had a gray mottled body,  almost round, and had a mane composed of it hairy substance, which will  stretch out over eight inches. Tho  body is some inches over seven feet  long. , It has two flippers' near th������  head, which look like reversod claws  more than a fish's fins.  The head of the creature is the most  rcmtrkable part, it has an enormous  jaw,' and a long tongue, which When  the animal was alive, was constantly1  darting in and out like the -forks of  a venomous snake. It is asserted that  tliis tongue contains, poison. The  tongue is pointed,   but not forked.  The creature had a large, clear eye,  much like the eyes of a fur seal, but  black and vicious looking. The jaw ia  heavy and of great strength, and tjn-  closes two sets of teeth. The front set  aro pointed much like cats' teeth and  are strong set in (lie mouth. The  top set* five in number, protrude, and  when tho jaw is closed la^il into the  lower set, which retreat from (bo  mouth. Behind this set is another  combination of molars, upper and lower, massed together in circular form.  Evidently after the prey was torn by  tlie front leeth.it: was masticated on  the crunchers behind.  The monster will be sold to tha, British Columbia Museum of Curiosities  at Victoria^  J.        CHECKED  IN  TIME.  In Launceston, Tasmania, a mother  of ninety, years, brought her son of  seventy-two to the Benevolent Asylum : to be looked after. The poor lad  had apparently taken up with bad  companions and fallen into bad habits. The other day his speech was certainly thick, while from the odor of  his clothes Knd breath her worst tears  were aroused���������she'd every reason to  suspect;.tliat he. had begun smoking.
