Bull  A STIFF ENGAGEMENT IN NATAL.  The Victory  Was Bought by a  Heavy  Loss' in Officers.  London, Oct. 22.���������The list of officers  killed and wounded at the battle between Glencoe and Dundee, in Natal,  shows that, although thc British victory was complete, it was bought at a  heavy price. In addition to Sir William Penn Symons, who it is feared is  mortally wounded, two colonels, three  captains and five lieutenants were  killed, and a colonel, three majors, six  captains and ten lieutenants were  wounded.   This heavy loss among the  possible, whether they would fight tho  Boers or the British, becauso his contingent was anxious to help thc Boers  elsewhere- He acknowledged that his  men were afraid of the Basiltos because  their wives and families as well as  their cattle were within reach of a  Basuto incursion. Tho Boers on the  Basuto frontier, according to thc best  information obtainable at Mazu number about 2,500.  London, Oct. 25.���������The Capetown correspondent of tho Daily Mail telegraphing at 9:45 p.m., yesterday siys : "General Yullo has performed a brilliant  straticttl movement. By a sweep  march to the south, leaving'Glencoe  empty, he has affected a junction of  his forces with those of Sir George  Stewart White, slightly north or Lady-  smith. The two are now in a position  to offer battle. I believe thc first attack will be made on the large Free  State force which entered Natal by  way of Tintwa Pass, and which has  since been harrassing Ladysmith. The  military authorities decided that by  joining their forces the two generals  would be better able to cope with one  large force at a time, than having two  small detachments to oppose simultaneously. Accordingly, after defeating the Free State troops they will  offer battle to Com.mandanl-Geiier.il  Joubert. Only forty miles now separate the two Boer forces. Hence tho  need for swift and telling action.

I-Tiird fighting is certain at a  very  early date.   Our men   arc coufi-  ing to-the traditions ��������� of the British  army, and refusing to use the cover of  which the men availed themselves in  'storming the Boer's position on -tho  summit of thc Kopje. The war offioe  announces that thirty-one non-commissioned officers aud men were killed  and 151 were wounded.  Amoug the rank and file, the Hussars had" 7 wounded ; the artillery 1  killed and 3 wounded ; the Leicestershire rfu'iment. had ] wounded; the  King's Rifles had 11 killed and GS  wouucicd ; the Irish Fusiliers, 14 killed  and 30 wounded ; thc Dublin Fusiliers,  - 4 killed and 41 wounded ; and the Natal  - politic '2 wounded.  ' Capetown, Oct? 23.���������The Boer com'-,  xnandcr m, the battle of Elandslaagte,  General Jan Kock, who was taken  , prisoner, it.is died of his wounds. Capetown dispatches from the front regarding "the 'cupliiro of Elandslaagte show  it to hitvi. i.v.en a brilliant feat of arms.  Tho BuiVd were strongly entrenched  and fought with great bravery. They  seized evt-rv opportunity of- coming  into action, and were ready to serve  their guns whenevei they could get a  chance. The British wounded are now  being taken to Ladysmith. ISvery care  and attention tiro also being given to  the Boer wounded, who are being despatched down the course.  Alter severe lighting our infantry  carried the position. This was accomplished at 0:30 p.m.. the enemy standing their ground to the Inst with courage aud tenacity. The Fifth Lancers  and a squadron of the Filth Dragoon  Guards charged thrice through the retreating Boers in J.he dark, doing considerable execution. We captured the  Boer camp, with teuts, wagons, horses  and alc-o two guns. The Boer losses  were very considerable, including a  number of wounded and unwounded  prisoners.     .Among   the   former   are  General Jan Kock aiid Piet Joubert,the  latter a nephew o( Commandant-General .loubcrt.

Applications for enlistment hayo come from almost every  Statoin 'the Union, and a number of  Roosevelt's-Hough .Riders have already  joined. They propose to equip themselves and pay their own expenses  throughout the war.  Capetown,   Oct. 24���������The  following  advices have'bertn received here from  from  Mastra,   Basutoland : "A native  lately visited a laager, of Orange Free  State troops just opposite-Maseru.   He  found   it   to  consist   of wagons,   sur-.  rounded b.y turf piled threcfeet high.  He noticed  only a few Mausers.   The  Boer commandant questioned him  regarding   the feeling   of  the   different  Basuto   chiefs,''principally, tlie! paramount Chief Lechihiodi and in order  to draw tlio coniniandanty   the native  replied that .tlie chiefs sided .with tlie  Boera-.     Tu ere upon   the. commandant  said that the  two republics wished  to  kill tlie British  and to take over  and  govern the  BastUos,   restoring to  the  latter that part of the country which  the  Free   State   formerly   took   from,  them. , As   for   the   Britishers,   those  whom they failed to kill,  they would  drive into the sea.   The commandant  ���������wished a decision on that, part of Lecli-  throdi .and thu other chiefs tis soon as  dent and there is much enthusiasm.  The fighting today outside Ladysmith was a mere brush. The losses'  on either side were insignificant. It  was marely an artillery duel, in which  the Boers camo off' decidedly the  worst." t( ''  London, Oct. 25.���������Tho following dispatch from General Sir George Stewart White, to tne Marquis of Luns-  clowne, Secretary of State of War, received last .evening at 11 o'clock was  posted at thc war office soon aftui-  midnight:  "Ladysmith. 2:49 p. m.���������Information  received   yesterday   shows   that    the  Boors   hail, established   thernaciyes in  considerable   numbers   in   an   exced-  ingly good position   we\t  of the mam  road loading from Ladysmith to  Dundee.   I also had   information  that th"  Dundee forces,  formerly  commanded  by  General   Symons,   and   since   his  wound, commanded by  General 'Yule,  was falling   back   on   Ladysmith,   by  ivay of Helpma Karr Road, Keith   and  and the valleys of the Waschbank and  Sunday rivers,   and   was   expected  to  reach Sunday River valley on Monday,  f therefore moved out a strong force to  coverthe moment of Yule's command.  The   enemy    was    discovered    about  seven miles   out   of  Ladysmith   in a  position of exception al nai ural strength  west of thc road.   'When   he   saw   the  preparations being made against   him,  he opened fire with one gun with great  accuracy.    Our artillery soon got   into  position and   the   gun   was   silenced.  Troops   woro   expected   to   occupy  a  strong   ridge,   parallel to the enemy's,  position but nearer tlio road.   I confined   mi'   efforts    occupying   him   and  hitting him hard   enough   to prevent  h's   taking     action    against     Yulejs  column.   Numbers of tlie enemy  (led  to the west and   firing had practical!}  ceased at two o'clock.  A special meeting of flic directors of  the Rambler-Cariboo company will bo  held   at Rossland 'on  November 2nd.'  The purpose   of  this   meeting is   to  declare :��������� dividend of one cent a share.  As the capital stock of the company is  now  1,250,000 shares,  the declaration  of this dividend means the distribution  of ������12,500   profits   among   tho   stockholders of thc company. The Rambler-  Cariboo is now in shape to declare regular dividends, and it is the intention  of thc officers to make the coming distribution of profits the first of the regular monthly payments of one cent n  share to the stockholders.   It has between 835,000 and ������40,000 in the treasury, 200,000 shares of unsold treasury  stock remaining   from thc recent increase   in   the   capital   stock,   which  could be sold for close to S100.000, but  which it is the intention of the officers  of thc company to hold until the stock  is worth $1 per share,   and the mine  itself is in shape to make   big shipments of rich silver'ore.   The completion of the lower tunnel,  tapping  the  ledge at a lower point far below  the  former workings, has opened up a big  urea of stoping grounds.   The ore can  be 'Stopod out from above the tunnel  and hauled to the surface at slight expense.   There is almost no limit to the  amount which can be shipped, and the  most gratifying feature is that the ore  in thc lower workings is the best ever  found  in the mine,   which is  saying  much, as  the Rambler, has long been  famous for tlie richness of its silver-  lead ore.  Light Co.,   wilfully places   a misconstruction  on a letter sent to  the city  council by the company anent present  differences between  them.    What the  company contend, and  what they are  right in contending, is that when the  council repudiated a resolution in their  books, passed in the  early days of tlie  year,  accqpting  light service  on  tho  terms of last year, and which, in law,  is a valid contract,   they  are likely at  any time again  to repudiate,   in the  matter of street lights,  anything short  of a contract under seal.   There is no  questioning thc fact that if the   Light  Co. had refused   to turn off the  light  when ordered   to do   so a couple of  months ago, and ha'd sued for" the total  amount, the courts would have decided  in   favor   of   the   company   on   the  strength  oi  the resolution of January  accepting service on tlie same terms as  the preceding   year.   Further  as  the  council ordered a discontinuance   of  that contract it is generally conceded  the company suing at the end  of the  year  can recover judgement for the  profits   they would reeeive  from  the  service.   As the city has not a dollar  to cpend in law suits,";and if they take  seasonable advice, the council will at  once interview the company aud make  some amicable settlement for the past  ami give a written contract for street  lights to the end of the year.   If the  council means lo pay for service there  can be no wrong in giving  a contract  under seal.    We  are fully aware the  people know that taxation is high and  the  least  tney  can look  lor is  good  water and  light service  as  two items  for the heavy taxes they  are paying.  The matter shouid be attended  to at  once; at least this is our opinion on the  subject.   The public money should not  go, year in and year out, without some'  resonaule returns to the people.

The Black Prince, at Sloean City, has  shipped tho sceond car of ore this season.    ���������  Tho Ivanhoe company have put up  a snow shed in tho wake of a slide, as  a precaution against possible danger.  About 30 men are working thc Rambler-Cariboo now and it is supposed  the mine will have nearly 60 more before the winter is over.  The Emily Edith has erected very  complete lodging and boarding apartments and will put up a concentrator  in the spring, but wc very much doubt  that it will employ the staff this winter  referred to by the Silvertonian. Joe  Martin's law is in the road.  It is genet ally understood that the  Minnesota Silver Company, are going  to put on- a considerable force of men  shortly to work the Ivanhoe and other  claims. It is also not unlikely a step  m ty be taken shortly in the way of  putting up thc projected concentrator.  An important strike has been made  on the Hewett claim, near Silverton.  A ledge from 5 to 10 feet wide and over  three-quarters of a mile in length has  been found. A paystreak about S  inches wide has been found near the  footwall, and much of the balance of  ledge matter is concentrating ore.

YESTERDAY'S CABLEGRAM.  London,   Oct. .27.���������The -only,  news  this morning consists of ruoru detailed  accounts of the battle already reported.  A correspondent who visited the hospital lit Ladysmith,   where   the Boers'  wounded   at   Elaneslaagt,   who   were  captured,  are    being  tended,   reports  that   General James Kock,  who   was  wounded  in the thigh and shoulder,  said that the advance, of tho patriots,  under Pinar, without guns, was simply  with the object of cutting the railway,  and that  this body  was - subsequently  reinforced   without. General Joubert's  orders.    General Viljoen accompanied  them.   Tiie latter  was,killed  early in  tho fight. .  According to another correspondent  tho Boors say that General  Kock, during tlie battle read his Bible and prayed for victory.   His brother,  two sons  and a nephew were   all   wounded and  taken   prisoners.     Colonel   Sohiel. of  the German corps, and   Commandant  Protorius were both^severly   wounded.  Many promiuent Boers   aro not yet accounted   for.   Philip   Kock   says   the  Buerd suffered most from the  ''soldiers  in littlo clothes, half men and half women," meaning the Gordon Highiand-  ders, and in the charge of the 5tl\ Lancers.   They   bay    also: that ,the   two  quick-firing guns captured by the Dev-  enshirc rogretnont are those that 'wero  taken iruiii tiio Jameson raid.   Colonel  Sohiel assured   a. correspondent   that  nothing could stand against", the accuracy of the British hold guns,, which repeatedly drove  lho.Transvaal- gunners  lrom tho embrasures.        ���������' i  The Growing Friendly ���������.Feelmg  Between  ���������'-.' the United States and Great Britain  Paving,the Way for'an Alliance of  Anglo-Saxon Races.  ,Manjr circumstances  are now going  to':show that ."a friendship  is.being established  between. Great Britain and  the United States,, that is '-likely-to remain for all time.   In  America's late  war with Spain   Britain's  sympathies  wore with the former,   and- the Americans arc now reciprocating by extending substantial sympathy  to   Britain  in her war  with   the   Boer Republic.  Through the  foolhardy policy of   Britain over a century ago,   in  enforcing  unjust taxation' on her colonies, they  became lost to her, and are now in tho  West what Great Britain is iu thc East  ���������-the 'greate.it.  power   on   tho   hemisphere,   and    both   aro     using   thoir  strength for the advancement of other  nations  whilo retaining their  individual supremacy.    'Differences of their  own  theso powers may have, and arc  certain to experience as' timo rolls on,  but they have both grown out of their  years of infancy and have sense enough  to settle them on a business basis.  This  will at all times leave.them both free j  to act in  concert when they' see   the i  interests of either arc imperiled, or the  welfare of any jiortion demands it.

HOME-MADE BAKING POWDERS.  If the best commercial baking powders were  not so reliable in auality  housekeepers would rebel at tho high  price  paid  for  them.   They    grumble  and now and then try some of tho low  priced brands, which they find unsatisfactory.    Two recipes for making baking powder at home at. half the cost  of that bought in pound cans.   Either  recipe will make ovor two pounds, and  if put together carefully, ia warranted to be satisfactory. <'  No. 1.                      %   .  8 ounces bicarbonate of soda,   $.05  G ounces tartaric acid.      .     .   .25  1 quart siftod flour 05  .35  No. 2.  8 ounces bicarbonate of soda,    "g.05  fi ounces tartaric acid.      ,     .   ,.25  6 ounces corn starch 08  .3&  Mix and sift six times through a  fine sieve. The powder made with  corn starch is finer and whiter than  that made with dour, and for this  reason some may prefer to pay threo  cents more for  ingredients.  FLAVORED VINEGARS.     ���������  Vinegar will take the odor and flavor of certain pungent and spicy articles in such a way as to change 'its  flavor permanently, and spiced vinegar  made of, allspice, cloves, mace and ginger root is very commonly kept in  stock.  Horseradish ground and sweotoned a  little will make another delicious flavor for vinegar. A quart of boiling  hot vinegar is poured over six table-  spoonfuls of grated horseradish, and  at (lie end of a mouth the liquid is  drained off.  Those who like garlic can flavor  their vinegar in a similar way. Pour  a quart of vinegar over a fow bruised  garlics, and let the mixture stand for  several weeks. Then the vinegar will  be so saturated with the garlic.that  a few drops of it will flavor gravies  and salads. A quart should last for a  year   -  Tarragon blossoms and leaves, older  flowers, nasturtium seeds and flowers, peppermint leaves, green peppers,  and all similar pungent plants can be  utilized for flavoring good white vinegar.  One can put up a dozen different  samples of spiced vinegar in this way,  which will be ready for instant uso  at any  time.  IN BRITAIN'S FACTORIES,  PERILS UNDERGONE BY WORKPEOPLE IN THAT COUNTRY.

The fourth and final report of tho  Departmental Committee appointed by  the British llonii Secretary to inquire  iiilo and report upon certain miscellaneous and dangerous trades is a  highly interesting and instructive  document. The Committee consisted  of Mr. H. J. Tennam, M. P., chairman,  Mrs. Tennanl, formerly Hor Majesty's  Superintending Inspector of Factories^  Dr.. Thomas Oliver, M.D., and Mt. H. P.  Smith,. R:.N., Hor Majesty's Inspector  of Factories.  In the four years in which they have  been at work they have Visited 295  factories, and workshops, examined 259  witnesses, and held 171 meetings. In  the course of their work they have had  to learn the intricacies both.of- business management and of scientific and  mechanical manipulation' of twenty-six  separate industries. By the care,  tact, and judgment with which they  have porforihed their important duties  they have- deserved.!well, of all the  workers of the community.  DEADLY  L\UKT. ,;  Most of- tne-trades -and industrial  processes dealt with in this volume arc  dusty occupations, in which the great  danger to health and even life itself  consists in the inhalation of very line  dust, not. necessarily poisonous; but  extremely injurious to the respiratory  organs. As an instance of the harm  wrought by dust, it may be stated  that a few yours ago coal miners died  in largo numbers from a'form ot consumption, but since the compulsory  introduction of improved methods of  watering the coal dust in the main  ways the culling of the miner is now a  comparatively healthy occupation..  GRINDSTONES.   ......  It is well known that the stonemason's is not' a-healthy- trade, but  that of cutting and building up grindstones and millstones, by reason of  tho extreme hardness ot the stone-  usually French burstonc���������is . much  moro dangerous. The hardness ot the  stone may be judged from the fact  that a man dressing it wiUaometnues  knock the point off as many, as ten  tools in a quarter of an hour. Dr.  Peacock in 18G0 calculated that of men  employed in millstone cutting in London forty per cent, died of 'tuberculosis.- Fortunately tliis trade is. nearly  extinct, steel rollers having largely  taken   the   place   of   millstones       Tho  Committee suggest that spectacles and  respirators should be supplied by tho  occupier to all workmen who desire  them. >  EMERY  WHEELS.  'The're is another very .hard rock,  from Smyrna to the Isle of Naxos,  ground into the finest (powder and  then made into wheels by the addition  of some substance like snellac or india  rubber, and then mado into wheels under hydraulic pressure. Corundum, an  oxide ot aluminium, which comes from  Canada, is used a,s a subwtilute for  emery. In tho use of these wheels, owing lo the great speed at which they  are driven���������a 3 in. wheel will bo driven at 7,401) revolutions a minute, and  a 3 ft. wheel at U00���������there is a great  danger of centrifugal breakage, be-  sidesp tho injuries caused by tho dust  given oft in their use.  '     BASIC  SLAG.  The slag is tho"refuse left in a special process of steel manufacture.  When ground to powder it is used in  the manufacture oi a patent manure.  It has to bo ground into an almost  impalpable powder, so lino that eighty, to eighty-five per cent, ol it would  pass through a mosh'10.0UO to lhe inch.

"*"^"'  Tho following account of the manufacture of slag wool is interesting���������  A fine stream of molten slag, is allowed to flow from thc blast furnace,  and this stream is met by a strong  blast of sle;uai through a narrow pipe.  Small globular particles, by reason of  their viscous nature and the velocity  with which they are forced 1 ��������� ougn  tho air, is drawn a long thin filament.  Theaggregatiou of these fiiamenis constitutes the threadlike, spongy material, which is deposited in fine white  Hikes not unlike snow. The silicate  of cotton- or slag wool, as it is called,  is collected after the steam has been  turned  off,  packed  in   bags and sent  out. , , , .        ,  ' The danger lies in the packing, bo-  cause of the dust.

LABGL LICKING.  Although not exactly a dnngcroua  trade, the report devotes a chapter to  what "is, to wi j' tho least, a nasty  practice."- At ono of the large thread,  mills in Lancashire there wore employed at one time somo twelve full-  timers, who each licked from forty to  fifty gross of labels per day.  To give an indication of the amount  of licking possible to bo done, one woman informed the Committee thai  when busy she could complete forty-  five gross of bobbins a day, or, allowing a tickot for each end of tho bobbin, nearly ninety gross, 12,060, of  Labels a day    .  Of course this is a bad as well as a  dirty praciice, .especially for children.  As Dr. Oliver remarks, "Thero is no  reason why tho saliva of .young people should be put to such a use." Indeed there is every reason against it;  for even if there be nothing actively  harmful on the label, constitutional'  derangement is apt to be set. up liyi  so much  licking.

A set of rules is applied, which, if repeatedly disobeyed, brings trouble to  the dairymen. Those rules are formulated upon tho bost-lcnown principles,  and thoy should bo' kept und lived up  to by farmers who niiiko thoir own  dairy butter on a. 'small or large scale.  Thoy will, in the end, profit by them;  for they all tend to the making .of  good butter and cheese. It is tho  order of tho day lo improve dairy products, and thooman who can produce  gilt-edged milk, butter or cheese is  sure lo make a   igood p-rofit.  The proper handling of; milk, as demonstrated by practise and experiment all over, is ^to aerate it just as  soon as possible after it is drawn from  tho cow, and then .to cool or chili 'it.  The reasons for those two processes  tiro simple. Thc first removes from  tho milk certain animal odors and gases that taint all fresh milk. The sudden cooling checks the multiplication  of injurious bacteria, which will in a  nhort time increase so that the milk is  in a fair way to sour iu a brief space  of time. The modern aerators and  coolers perform both of these operas  lions at once, but a farmer can imitate  lhe work to a certain extent without  them. Tho aeration simply, means fo  expose the milk to the clear air by  spraying it out in, a thin stream. If  one has a tub,, and pours tho milk  out slowly from a heighti of several  feet, ho will accomplish what tho  aerators do. . Tho chilling of the milk  should follow immediately. Clean cans  that have been scalded out with boiling hot water can bo sunk into a tub  of ice, and thon by pouring tho milk  info them and closing! the top tight  with tin and flannel, tho necessary  low temperature will be obtained in a  short timo. Somo farmers' have simply sunk thoir cans in a brook or  spring of cold wafer, burying the bottoms in a foot or, two of cold gravel.  Whore one has no ico handy, this  method is a good substitute. By treating the milk in this way it will be  sweeter, cleaner and purer, and at  tho same Lime it will bo so freed from  bacterial germs that it can be kept a  day or two longer than milk treatod  in the ordinary way. ��������� If possible tho  milk should bo cooled to a temperature of 58 degrees and kept so. It goes  without saying that tho utmost care is  necessary to keep the cans and utensils  perfectly clean, aud that they must be  scalded out -without boiling water  every time lhey are emptied and before now milk is put in them.   :  SMOOTH WIRE FENCES DESIRABLE:  Tho smooth wire fenco 'is the only  one which exactly moetfi fhe demands  for a first class fence. In the orchard  the trees can bo protected against rabbits, sheep, hogs on mice, by being  sheathed with close woven wire fenc-*  ing. , The chicken yard when surrounded with a woven wire; fence is  the best kind of enclosure yet devised.  Wire fences have found their way into  the cities, where town residents have  been quick to appreciate their usefulness and ornamental feuturos as lawn  fences. '.'���������-.��������� . "���������'������������������  |A fence has to' be taken care of. If  it becomes loose, tighten it up; at once  before it gets beyond���������' 'repair. Tho  winds,, the rains/ snows, sleets, and hot  sun are all wearing upon it, and naturally tho fence will bocome .worn. Always keep the rank grasses and weeds  cut away from the fence, as these help  to injure the posts by holding moisture  about them. The weeds also harbor  chinch bugs and other insects destructive  to field crops.   .

Owing to-tho coarse nature of this  cereal it is niorei difficult to handle  than any other farm crop-. There aro  a groat many devices of low racks so  that the stalks inay be carried in nr'm-  fuls onto thein, but undoubtedly .tho  quickest way is to tie the stalks into  good bundles and havo; ono man pitch  and tho other on the wagon. Then  in unloading, thero is. not that loss  which occurs in a load of loose stalks  writes H. Peaender. 1 cut my corn  with a-���������binder, do not unite the bitn-i  dies at husking, hut simply turn them'  around a few times. A table is used to  lay the bundles on while husking, thus  saving a good deal of back-bending to  the busker, and more palatable'leaved  ������or the. stock than with the.old vviiy of  kneeling on the corn. I stack tho  stalks near the door ot the hay loffc  driveway, and in winter cut tho stalks  with, a fodder cutter and feed in tho  barnl Pound for pound, the cut corn  fodder gives us, better returns in the  milk pa.il than the best hay.  In many instances corn is hauled  from the field unhusked, stacked in a  sheltered place and husked after the.  rush of fall work is over. In this way  the field is cleared before frost, ullow-  ing it to be. run through1 with the sod  cutter or plowed. ��������� When corn has  been shocked without tying into bundles, a good way to; lead is to lean a  wide board against the rack- and ono  end at the butts 'of tlie shock to bo  loaded.' Have a strong rope with a  sling  at one end  to  draw around tho  head of the shock, | The man on tho  load, aided by the1 one on the ground  at the start, oan easily slide up a large  shook.

It is tho  , imblem of love, joy and prosperity.  Fith the Greeks and Romans it was  ' Mso symbolic of silence. ,By. them it  fas prized above all other flowers. Tho  iharm of other  bloom might  be cx-  Iressed  in words.     That of tho rose  Juld only bo expressed in silence���������bo-  (auso its beauty was beyond all speech.  A pet theme with tho ancients  was  ihe representation of Cupid offering a  )ose to Harpocrates, the god of silence.  It   was  customary   lo  suspend, a rose  |bove the fostive board.    Mute intimation  that all  conversation  was  to  be  \, feld scored, never to be divulged. This  B the correct derivation of "sub rosa,"  literally, "under the rose." A    pretty  bought and  a beautiful  phrase.  - Because  signifying    "joy,"   the  Romans also "pictured Comus, the god of  lleasuro,'' as    a    magnificent    youth  prownud 'with roses.  First of all, the rose means "love."  Love is like a rose,  And a month it may" not see  Ere it withers where it grows.  Sir Walter Scott paints this    dainty  -It:  (he rose is fairest when 'tis budding  new,  And hope is brightest when it dawns  from fear;   a  the rose   is   sweetest   washed    with  morning dew,  And love is lovliest when embalmed  i      with tears.  However,    tearful    lovo is    loveliest  inly  in  rhyme.      Tears ore becoming  mly  in fiction. "  The brief, sweet life of the rose has  Bade  a   favorite    subject    for  poetic  v moralizing, particularly  with  Sponcer  'ad    Byron.     Happily,    its fragrance  has.   proved a more- pleasing  inspiration.   Its beauty may perish, its petals  wither, but its undying perfume wafts  ���������lhe thought  First of all the rose, tiocauso its breath  Is rich beyond the rest; and   when it  dies,  It   doth   bequeath   a charm fo sweeten deo.th.  iWallor sent his Sacharissa a "lovely rose" as ambassador of his admiration. To these celebrated stanzas,  this verse has been.supplemented by a  laodern writer; (  Yet, though thou fade,  "from  thy  dead  loaves  let  fragrance  rise,  And teach the maid,  That  goodness  Time's  rude handde-  *      fies,  And virtue lives when beauty dies.  In love-lore the rose has ever' been  Cupid's messenger. A pretty ��������� story  relates that tho Duko of Clarencb,    a  The   moss   rose   has a charming legend, which is best told in the words  of Krummacher:  Tbe Angel of th; eflowor one day,  Beneath a roso tree sleeping lay;  That spirit to whose charge 'tis given  To    bathe    young    buds  in    dews  of  i .heaven;  Awakening from his light repose,  Tho Angel  of the flower one day,   ���������  "O fondest object of my care,  Still  fairest    found,     where-  all    are  fair;  For the sweet shade thou giv'st mo,  Ask what thou wilt, 'tis granted thee!"  Then    said    tho    Rose, with deepened  Slow,  "On ine another grace bestow !"  The spirit paused in silent thought,  What grace was thero that flower had  not?  'Twas but a moment���������o'er the Rose  A veil of moss tho Angel throws,  And,; robed in nature's simplest weed,  Could   thero   a   flower   that rose ex-  coed ?  ���������In the "Song of Solomon";we read of  tho "Rose of Sharon." Tho Prophet  of Isaiah uses the blooming of the  rose as. a perfect Bmblem of joy and  felicity. He predicts that with tho  coming of the Messiah, the desert shall  rejoice and "bloom as the rose." The  Scriptures allude to the plantation of  roses at: Jericho. "Wisdom" is said  to be exalted as a "rose plant at Jericho."  Rose culture has remained more prominent in the Orient. Tho country  about Kisanlik, .Burgaria, is fhe main  source.for the. oil of rose. This is the  perfume of tho rose in concentrated  and permanent form.

In madiaeval Franco the "Bailie aux  Roses," Tribute of Roses, was observed.   It  was  a romantic  custom  instituted by Blanche of Castille, widow of  Louis VIII.     In 1827 she^was Regent  for Mario Dabuisson, daughter of .the  first President, of the Parliament. The  Regent and her court,  together  with  the peers of Parliament, assembled at  Poitiers in May, for legal conference.  Many, causes    awaited  their  decision.  One of the most important had  been  instrusted  to  the  advocacy  of- a gallant but pleasure-loving young noble,  Compte  do    la  Marche.      He   was   so  madly in lovo with Marie that-,he had  but littlo thought and less inclination  for  things storn and legal.      He had  alroady. pressed his suit and been  rejected.     This but made his love burn  the" fiercer.     The  evening  of  his  ar-  ., rival    at    Poitiers,  ho ventured   into  Marie's" rose-garden, tondoring her an  ardent serenade.     Mario appeared at  her window.    She eluded him for "employing    tho hours    of  thought    and  study    in idle   gallantry,"      "On   tho  morrow,"    she  continued,   "'twill    bo  your task to defend before Parliament'  ��������� the honor und fortune of tho orphans  ���������and  you  are   wasting  your  time   in  Idle  pleasure.   If you   would  win  my  favor,  go I   Prepare to  do  your  task  Worthily."  Tho Count took her reproach to  heart. Ho passed tho night in study;  He mastered the details of the, case.  The next day he made his plea with  brilliant success. So eloquent was  he, that the Queen Regent smilingly  asked the source of his inspiration.  "The voice of an angel," was the fcr-  . y*nt reply. .  The sequel is obvious." They married "and lived happily ever after." To  commemorate the pretty incident, the  Queen ordered that every year, on the  1st of May, the youngest noble should  pay to Parliament a "Bailie aux  Roses." The custom -was long observed, until 1589.  The white rosebud signifies "Girlhood."

French ingenuity, active enough-  where war is concerned, has solved the  problem of making spiders weavo'  ropes for military balloons. These  ropes are said to be lighter in proportion to their strength than any others  whioh have been tested. The best balloon cords have previously been made  of silk. ��������� . ' '  The peculiar industry is carried on  at Chalais-Meudon, near Paris.  Twelve spiders are placed above a  reel to which their threads are attached amd the reel's gently revolved while  they sipin the thread. They are allowed to spin some, forty or fifty yards  before stopping to rest. The united  strand is washed to relieve it of its  sticky envelope and then united with  others, until a tiny cord, light but  very strong, is the result.

The littlo thin   whito  dresses  wheih  the .baby has worn through the summer are not warm enough for winter  wear unless his underclothing is heavier, but he ought to be dressed in flannel  throughout and  subjected' to    ho  sudden  changes.   His hands and  feet  should be especially well taken care of.  How very often do we find on taking  the little one  up  that  his hands and  feet are almost numb.   . That may often result in serious colds.     The floor  may be the most convenient place for  the baby's playground, but there is always    a strong    draught there'which  any one may feel by only placing the  band   there, for  an   instaut.   And   besides, the atmosphere near the floor is  that  higher up,  so the   baby,   if    allowed to roll on the floor, is constantly  always  several   degrees    colder    than  in a cooler atmosphere tnan the grown  people.      The proper    temperature  is  about seventy degrees.   It is not well  to havo it so cold that one shivers or  so   hot    that   a puff  of  cold   air will  make one sick.  The air which thu baby breathes  should bo-pure, and. good ventilation  is ahsolutely,necessary. ; If no better  way is provided he should bo carried  into another room occasionally, and  tho windows opened until the air is  purified. AVhon tho room is then  sufficiently worm ho may roturn. A  little child should not be taken  through draughty passageways or  kept in open doorways without having  a woolen shawl thrown ovor him.

The (rest of the contents comes in order' of quantity as  follows:���������Humor, local notes, poetry,  chiefly in u light vein, special articles  on local theatricals and fiction.  The most striking feature about  journals, is the almost total absence  of gloom and melancholia, and we have  it on tlio word of the doctor of one  of the leading asylums, that this is  not owing to such contributions being  tabooed; But now and again one comes  on a poem or tale drenched with melancholia and morbid: insanity. In one  of these journals appeared a' story,  written in the first person, about a  hero���������undoubtedly the writer��������� who  had. his head twisted round the wrong  way. The consequence was he invariably had to walk in the opposite direction to which'ho, wanted to walk.  This terrible fate haunts him' right  through the story, causing him to lose  friends, money and everything else  which man holds dear, and. ends up by  in his own mind murdering the girl  who was to stive him from himself. According to the story, the heroine was  standing on the edge of a great precipice. The hero is standing nraar. Suddenly the heroine becomes giddy and  totters on the ��������� brink. Tho 'hero trios  to dash forward and save her,.but oJ  course runs tlie other way. Here comeC  a break in the narrative which is finished by the following sentence: "And  tho gates of an asylum for- those mentally deranged shut tho writer off  from his friends in the outer world."  Apart from such tragedies; as the  above, the whole of these journals  aro  SATURATED WITH HUMOUR.

Perhups.it should be explained that1 . the celebrities referred to  above are not those known to the public, but other persons who claim their  Y-'irsoruilties and are detained in the  asylums for tlia;t  vory  reason.  A'writetrj'inthe " Fort England Mirror," gives the following' reason for  his detention:���������" I met a young widow  with'-a- grown-uS? step-daughter, and  the widow married me, then my father,  who was a widower, met my stepdaughter and inatried her.

And yet another  points o|h't that it has always been  'the fate of really great men to be  ignored or ill-treated by their contemporaries, and that is why he ifr  now detained.

C. politicians sjo, long as the general disaster  brintrs him .votes'. .Their return to the  House is of moro importance io theiii  selves than the financial progress of  the people and tbe country-.',.  In thCJ Slopari. on properties that-now  would be employing at least 1100 men,  had the old regulations remained in  force, there are perhaps 300 men. at  work, the remainder either being out  of work, out of the couutry or, to a partial extent, scattered throughout the  district., and in many cases, it is feared,,  plotting against the -interest of the  country.' The seeds of discord have  been sown, the evil leven has been  thrown into the liiiiip.nnd whore, when  and   how'quiet may again be restored  jao one can even conjecture.  A demand is nowriiado; for the old  wage for the, eight-hour .shift without  the slighest.-. compensating;-concession  to the owner, and a portion of .the press  is' endorsing it "on: precisely"flieprinciple that.the politicians passed the  law���������to curry favor with the men for  the shekels it may-bring. None.. of  them attempt to, snow the justice of, it,  all, but still in most quarters the demand'is endorsed. .The lucre that may  follow is of Infinitely- more importance  to the advocates than is ^justice'..to the  conh try.' Pat the 1"e'stion to any of  the eight-hour.(as it;stands) advocates  why it is that: if the men were well  paid, and- fully'satisfied- with the payment of S3.50 Tor ten hours worlc nine:  months ago, they' should.now get^the  same money for eight hoiirs, and none  of them1; will attempt a sensible reply!  Some of the men will give.y911 ns ah  answer., whatis a; physical impossibility���������that a man will do in an eight-  hour sliift iis much he could/in. a  ten-hour shift.' No ' one of either  the men, or; the newspapers or po-:  litical apologists will say that the  owner' formerly got too much work  for his '3.50, or that he should now get  less for it. Reasonable questions are  only-met by evasions. The owner on  the other hand says, "Since it is universally conceded, and fully substantiated by the previous contentment of  the men,' that I formerly gave good  pay for the work I got, I am fully willing to settle on any basis ot,equivalent  that the law will allow." It matters  not to him how the settlement is made,  so long as what was formerly conceded  to be ample payment for a day's work  is observed as the principle. The new-  law has in noway advanced the price  of the metals,' improved the quantity  of the metals in the seams, improved  the condition of the men for pro rata  work, so there is nothing in these to  consider���������a just settlement can only be  made bii a proper basis of-concessions.  The miner .'says,- .'T can not live and  make any money on less than S3.50 a  day," That may be true to the letter,  hut it. is only one side of the story���������  the other side is that of the owner���������it  is that the shortened hours will bring  him 20 per cent diminished returns,  which he ought not ad be asked to'accept since former work and payment  were considered honorable and just.'aU'  around. If a change was necessary it  should have had ���������corresponding c-on-  ces.ssions.

There are already in Canada, several  laws limiting labor, and hours of service, without, penalties,'and the contention is that the one in question should  be an addition to the list. To meet the  demands ef those who contend that 110  such law can be valid, or workable,  without penalties, we may say it is not  necessary while observing; "the prin-.  ciple" that any special suin should be  named as a penalty. Supposing the  clause ran this way: "No man shall  employ another to work in an linder-  ground tunnel in any metalliferous  mine longer than eight hours in.  any 24, under a penalty of 50 cents for  every hour of over time, the penalty'  in every case to be paid to the employee." ���������'���������;.-  ."

The experience has  been that 111 certain classes of rock  even good men could not' get dif their  blasts, in.'imicii 'less lhao ten'hours  work. Contrive as he tnay, .the ordinary 'miner of the Sloean could not do  such work in eight hours. .Some men  will say sack such men. The chances  are that another strike' or stoppage  of work would follow. Even if it did  not follow, it .would make sacking so  general that enough men could not be  found to' operate the mines on the  eight-hour principle, while on the ten  the camp could easily be supplied, as  when the blast could not begot off in  eight hours they readily could in ten.  The ten-hour regulation would then  guarantee permanent work to infinitely  more men than can ever bo expected  under the eight-hour regulation, even  if it. works as well as its. ardent admirers say it will.  The Review is'not an advocate of  cheap labor, neither is;it the friend of  injustice: It is not to; the benefit of  the ..Kootenay country that miners'  wage's should be reduced to S3.00, but  it is at least as equally great injustice  to expect the'owners to pay' ten-hour  wages for eight-:'hours work. The  point is, therefore, to equalize the  matter in some amicable way that the  burden will bear noliarder on one side  thati it does on the other. This is all  that,The Review desires.

When my children made a noise while playing I would be so overcome with  nervousness and weakness that I could not do anything and had to sit down to regain  composure.

Though Eva could never have guessed the truth, Lilas Lampier was indirectly the cause of Mrs. Weslbrook's  ohanged feelings  towards herself.  "Miss Lilas, had, in her own shady  world, become a decided success. 4She  had remained with the Barnams until  o more wealthy and more enterprising'  circus proprietor had offered her such  terms that sho could afford to break  faith with hor first muster, and accept  1'he- bribe held out to her.  | This man, in his turn, was thrown  ovor for another, still bettor able 10  help her up tho ladder of success, and  bo tho fair false one got on slop liy  etep, and now sho is tho leading actress at tho Palladium, u theatre that  ladies seldom frequent, hut where a  lovoly face, a magnificent figure and  a good powerful voice, suitable lor  opera bouffe, will always insure a  crowded houKe, particularly when tho  possessor of these qualities is backed  up by  a  rich patron.  Lilas had all these claims lo constant  employment at tbe Palladium. Sho  could dance and she could sing ! few  women before tho public could rival  hex in beauty, and the Duke of Dull-  borough lavished wealth and jewels upon her, as though his oivn resouioes  wore unlimilod and inexhaustible.  Not being a young woman troubled  with any sensitive notions on the score  of virtue you might reasonably suppose that Lilas do Lampier, as' she  Btyled herself, had few desires ungrati-  fied, but this was not tho case.  She would be a lady, and though nothing on earth could make her one m  the same senso that Eva Bandolph was,  she gradually acquired the conviction  that if she married a gentleman no  one could deny hor the social recognition which she coreted.  The duko would not marry hor if ho  could, and there was the disagreeable  fact of tboro being one JDuches* of  Dullborough already, to preclude oven  a hope iu that direction, so what was  she to do to attaiu her purpose?  When she began to think seriously  oC matrimony, Lilas realized for lhe  first time that, although beset with  innumerable admireia,  there was not  a tion, und sho regarded her aa a disgrace alike to her profession and her  sax.  The idea thfit her own son should  iniarry this creature transported the  piroud woman wick passion, and she  Indignantly denied it could bo possible.  But when she herself asked Ernest  a'boul it ho answered moodily:  "1 don't know whom -1 ."-hall marry.  I have only loved ono woman and sho  refused raw ; 1 don't care much what  happens next."  "But surely you could never enlor-  uiin tho notion o������ making nu abandoned creature, whose very name has become a, by-word of shame, your wife ?"  asked -Mrs. Westbrook, with undisguised horror.  I Her sou .answered evasively, and  then observed:  ".She. is very beautiful. Have you  a&en hor V  "No ; hawl should I see such a crea-  tuicf"  was   tne   angry  quest ion.  ".Easy enough, by going lo the Palladium any night," was the careless  reiply.   "I'll  take  you,  if you like."  Mrs. Weslbrook's heart leit mgh unto burstiog with rage and indignation.  But she curbed herself; her son. was  beyond hor control, and she hadvalso  an uupleiis.-inI consciousness that sho  had in a great measure brought, this  new  danger  on  herself.  If she had only retrained fiom interference when he had evinced a partiality for Eva, this last depJorable condition of affairs could never have come  about.  Whon sho spoke again, il was in a  hesitating tone,  and she  asked:  "Blight you not have been mistaken;  might not (the girl you lovod have  doubled herself when you asked her  to marry you if It Ls not the first timo  of asking that is always successful if a  woman is worth  winning."  "1 don't cure lo be refused twice,"  was tho curt reply.  Aad then he leit the room ; (he subject was as painful as it was dislasle-  lul to him.  "[low 1 am punished I" moaned the  unhappy .mother, when she found herself alone. "I'va would have been a  wife for  him  ot    whom  J   might    bo  one among- rhein who ever thought ������" nroud. But (hau abandoned wretch! I  giving hor that plain gold ring which 11JKly that thc grave may close over  signifies so much. \ my head before she bears my name and  No pure love and no great' passion  nad touched the heart of this 'utterly  selfish girl, until one night at a boisterous supper party she mot Mr. Westbrook. Sho recognized him in a moment. She remembered bis face and  his name, and she recollected how. in  turning to admire him, she had once-  walked with littlo Freddie into tho  river.  In those days he was I he* handsomest  man she- had ever seen, and now, looking at him among so many, and after  the thousands she had since met, sho  decided still to give him tho palm.  But he seemed ill ab ease in the (company in which he found himself, and  yet thero wins a certain oir of impatience and defiance about him that suggested lo hor quiok intelligence that  he had beon thwarted or disappointed,  and might bo ready (o perpetrate any  piece  of recklessness.  To the disgust of many of her admirers, Lilas showed a marked pieference  for Mr. Westbrook, and, when the  party broke up, she gave him her address and invited him to call and see  her.  It is needless Cor us lo follow Lilas  in her subsequent career for the next  fow months, except in so far as it 'regards others in whom wc are interested.  Our a marked change came over ihci  actress. For the first time in her life  she knew the meaning of the wordj  love. Not love in its purest form, but  lovo turned to passion, and a craving  desire to make the loved one her own  at any and every cost.  Love made Lilas timid and almost  modest. She meant lhat Ernest Westbrook should marry hor, and she played her game with such consummate  skill that she stood a very good chance  of winning.  Bo had heard the tales that were in  everybody's mouth about her, but how  could ho credit them when sho was always so modest and retiring in her  relalions with him?  Sho asked him questions about his  home and his molhor, she narrated little incidents o������ he past and at length  she recalled herself to nis recollection/  ns she had once been und implied in p.  more subtle way than if she had openly avowed it that eve.u in those days  she had admired and loved him.  Only once had he stopped her abruptly, and quickly changed Ihe subject  whon she talked about the past, and  that was when she casually expressed  some curiosity as to what had become  of Eva Randolph.  "Sho is an artist," ho replied, curtly-  "Oh I then, I'll engage her to paint  my'portrait," said Lilas, in/ a tone that  implied that Eva must feel honored by  receiving' such a  commission.  But  the expression  of Weslbrook's  face, and  the  tone of hisi voice stung  Jior to tho quick, as he remarked, soine-  '"vibat  sarcastically.  "I would spare myself tbe inevitable  mortification which must follow such  in offejr,  if I were you."  "What do you mean 1" she demanded, hotly. ���������  - "If you: do not know, I cannot: tell  you," was the reply. "But 1 must say  good-bye; my mother expects me."  "And Eva Randolph is waiting. I  suppose," exclaimed Lil'as, with a  burst of jealous vehemence.  "No; I have not seen Miss Bandolph;  for some months,".he. replied coldly.  Then he went away feeling that fori  a time he had had quite enough ot ahia  ���������beautiful fury.  But tibe story got abroad���������it was  originally set afloat by herself���������that  Mr. Westbrook. was engaged to marry  Mile. Lilas de Lampier, and the news-  reached tbe ears of Mrs. Westbrook.  She knew the actress well by reput-  makes me childless ; for i will never  see or speak Lo him'again if he firings  Ibis shame upon me."  Bul this passion wore itself out, and  at length, Mrs. Westbrook began lo  think how sho could save her son from  this disgraceful alliance.  Eva was hor only resource and her  only hope.  To go 10 the Longfords was the fii'3l  .uhi.ug Mrs. West'brook did the nuxt  morning, and she learned from them  thai Eva had already returned to England���������had, indeed, been back a fortnight.  Mrs. Westbrook understood the situation directly. Eva did not intend to  seek her out. The girl 'was offended,  and rnusil be conciliated. In a moment the astute woman of tho world  had made up her mind what to do.  "To-tinonow will be her birthday,"  she observed, sweetly, to Mrs. Longford. "Please don't say anything  about this visit of mine, 1 want tosui-  prisa her."  Shortly afterward she look her  leavo.  "I will go wilh Ernest to that theatre, ' slie said to herself, as she leaned  back in hor carnage; "and1 i will tako  Eva. The best plan will be to ask her  to dinner, without telling him sha is  coming. If he still loves her, perhaps  things will come right without furlk-  or trouble; but if ne sees the two women together, then suieiy he must bo  delivered from the toils of that brazen  Circe at the Palladium."  Mis. Westbiook cairie.d out her plan  lo the letter. She duly inlormed her  son that very evening ot her desire lo  visit the Palladium, and requested him  to secure a private nox for the next  night.  in tho morning she sent the carefully-concocted invitation to Eva, which  we have seen, but not having received  an3r answer to it when the dinner lime  was approaching, she began to get nervously anxious about tne success of  her scheme, and al length dispatched  hor own maid in a. hansom cab with  another letter still more earnestly entreating Lhe girl to    come to her.  This was successful, lhe messenger  and the guest returned together, bul  Eva's heart fluttered liko an imprisoned bird as she look Mrs. Weslbrook's  haud and asked;  "Uii ho know that 1 was coming V"  "Xo; ho does not know that you are  in London ; i have been much to blame,  Oh, .. i'Jva !" she added, as she heard  her son's step on the stairs, "wiu him  if you can, save him for both of  us."  Before the astonished giii could 10-  ply the door opened aud Ernest Westbrook stood  before  her.  she felt very certain tba|t she would  be sharply crilioised, and she knew  that Ernest would be indireotly influenced by his mother's opinion, however much he might try to persuade  himself that he wa.s not.  Many times during tho early part  of the evening Lilas glanced up at  the empty box which she knew Ernest Westbrook had secured.' Why was  he so late? Why did he not come?  She was getting impatient and very  cross.  Every day of her life she was becoming more and more infatuated with  tliis man who hovered about her, and  yet held back from saying or doing  anything that could compromise him.  She had, for his sako, dismissed all  her other ' admirers, including even  the duke, who could not be easily replaced.  At last, when tho evening is fully  half over, she sees 'the curtains of the  emptjy box move, and her heait throbs  witUi proud salisfn,etion, for she feels  that Ernest is watching her at last.  She cannot look a,t him for a fow  seconds, former parti demands her exclusive attention; but whon she can  turn her eyes toward the box, she sees  that there are Lwo ladies there, both  of tgicm  intently  gazing at her.  Who can they bo f Ono che recognizee as In's mother, but tho other is  scarcely older than herself, and she  never heard him speak of n sister.  The box: in which-tho Westbrooks sit  Is near one side of tho stage, and when  Lilas can lipproach it without attracting observation, she looks up at tho  fair oval face that looks down steadily  and almost sadly  upon her.  Where has aha seen that girl's face  before? In a moment'it-*iiasnes"-'upon  her, and in the same glance'the recognition is mutual. Eva sinks back with  an expression of horror; whilo sudden  jealousy and hatred transform tho  sweet face of L'las Lampier into that  of a raging fury.  Only for an instant, however. She  is far too good an actrclas to lot her  own feelings spoil her part; and, as  though to show the prudes who watched her that sho did not value their  opinions, but defied them, sho gave  herself greater license than she had  ever done befom. She must make Ernest Westbrook her slave by intoxicating his senses, or she would lose him  altogether; for some subtle instinct  told her that Eva wa.s her dangerous  rival.  Between lho acts Lilas expected  that Ernest would como behind the  scenes, as usual, to speak to her ; but  ho did,not; neither did he throw or  sp.nd her a bouquet and he seemed to  take no more notice of her personally,  than any other woman upon the  s'tage.  " I will speak to him to-night," she  thought, passionately; "he will chose  between her and me. I will be second lo none in his heart, or he shall go,  and I will forget him."  With'this determination, she wrote  a hurried scrawl, as she stood in one  of tlie wings, and sent it round to Mr.  Weslbrook's box. Ernest received it  as he and the two ladies woro leaving,  and ho thrust it unopened into his  jacket.  A very little of tho Palladium was  enough for Mrs. Westbrook���������still less  had been too much for Eva; and as  soon as she ha,d recognized Lilas as  one of the companions of her childhod,  her great anxiety was to get away as  quickly as she  could.  Sho had often wondered wha,t had  become of the girls with whom she used  to play, but she ha,d never for a moment suspected that tho woman she  had heard spoken of as the modern  Dalilah was the Lilas Lampier who  used to stagger about Westbrook under the burden of Mrs. Flood's big  baby. Of the danger that Ernest wns  in from tliis siren she had no suspicion.  Mrs. Westbrook had not found an opportunity for telling her, and now she  deemed it prudent not to do so.  Ernest had been surprised to meet  Eva in .his mother's drawing-room, and  there was some awkwardness on both  sides when she offered him her hand  and uttered the commonplace greeting that sho hoped he was quite well.  Ernest refused to accept tho olive  branch, and determined more recklessly than over lliajt he would marry Lilas Lampier, and thus show Eva that  she could not play fast and loose with  him at her leisure. His mother divined  his thoughts and resolved still lo save  him.  She left tho dining room with Eva,  but she returned alone a few minutes later, and approaching her son,  and laying her hand on his shouldor,  said:  " Ernest, I have something to confess, though you may blame mo bitterly for what f have done. I mado  Eva refuse you ; I exacted it as tho  price of all kindness to her. She went  away because X believed she loved you,  and she is only here this evening by  my entreaty. It was for your sake  T   did   it.   but    I fear   I actod   unwise-  she had really loved him, wonld she  have refused. to become hia wife for  no^other reason than because his mother desired her to do so. No, he could  not believe it; rather, perhaps he  would not.  And thus he sat brooding, until a  servant came to tell him that the carriage was nt the door and the ladles  wero ready. T  To Bo  Continued.  Excruciating Pains  fHE VICTIM A WELL-KNOWN AND  POPULAR HOTEL CLERK.  7    CHAPTER   X;  L'las Lumpier is at her very best  to-night. The opera bouffe, in wh'.uh  she takes tho leading part, has been  placed on the stage and got up with  the principal object of showing off her  voluptuous grace and beauty in the  most effective manner possible.  Never was she in bettor form for her  work, and never'did she feci more confident of triumph. Ernest Westbrook  has not yet proposed to her, but she  feels very certain that he will do so.  Only this morning he told her that  his mother was coining to the thea.tre  in the pvening to see her act. Ho did  this, perhaps to put heron her guard,  So that Bhe might /not indulge in any  of the impromptu witticisms and seductive glances with which she often  embellished her art.  At any rate, she took the hint and  sho almost wished she could, have selected some other piece in which the  proud lady, might  first see  her,   for  ly."  " Very unwisely," replied her son,  sternly, lising to his foet, and looking coldly in her faco. "But having  sent her away, why have you brought  her  back  again?".  ���������'Why?"  gasped  his  mother.  "You  know why;   surely it is not too late?"  ''Bo you menu to go to the theatre  to-night ?" he asked, moodily, ignoring   the   question.  " Tes; I told Eva you would take  us," she replied, stung'to the quick by  his seeming indifferenoe to her feelings   and   wishes.  " Very well ; let me know whon you  are ready to  start," he replied.     ,  And then she left him, with the terrible fear in her hea.rt that her submission had come when submission was  useless. Ernost Westbrook sat over his  wine, much longer (than usual, though  he did not help "limself freely from  thc flecanter.  For a time he sat frowning at ;i he  vacant seat opposite him, and then he  broke out into a harsh laugh. These  women scorned to be playing with his  heart as they would with a.tennis ball  quite regardleHs of anything he might  suf fer. , ���������  ��������� ���������  He. was angrv with his mother, but  he; was ptill more angr[y; with Eva. ff  ,  ELECTRICITY ON THE FARM.    ,  Compile Plant Operates Affair*   on   n  .Vow YorK State Farm.  On a farm pf ,350 noises in the State  of New York there is a complete electric plant which produces thc current for lighting and boating as well  as for supplying the power for other  operations connected wilh the farm.  All the mechanical energy is supplied  by nature, and tho cost and maintenance of tho pla,nt aro inexpensive. It  ha3 demonstrated that electricity used  for manual labor is,a success. The  farm land is situated 'on both sides of  a good sized stream, on which are two  falls���������one CO feet and the other 180  feet high, and these furnish tbe power.  One motor of 10 horse power runs a  mowing machine, another a threshing  muchiue, and a third works a 44 inch  saw for cutting logs. Tho fa,rm' house  is brillianlly-lightedi- and well heated  by electricity. The kitchen is supplied  with an electrically heated cooking  stove, and in tho laundry, the flat irons  nre heated by the same power. In the  dairy tho churns and olhor appliances  all havo electric motor attachments,  The grounds are lighted by several  aro lamps, and the uso ot these in the  barns greatly facilitates the work and  lessens  the  danger  of firo.  SOME MARRIAGE CUSTOMS..  In Siberia a bride, on entering her  husband's house, must be prepared to  show he1- skill in cooking. She is expected lo give a dinner prepared with!  her own handis1, as a test of the education she has reoeivod. If she pleases  her guests it is taken not only as a  proof that she is well qualified for her  new position, but that hor family is  a worthy one, since her parents have  trained their daughter so successfully.     '  There is another laud where thrift  is expected of the young folks. In  Holland, says tho Rev. E. G. Hardy in  the Quiver, a girl is bound to ask,kar  future husband if he can afford to pay  the wedding fees.  In Norway, however, things are not  quite so promising. The Norwegians  are always trying to put the best foot  foremost, and they-do it in reference  to marriage as well as In referonce lo  other matters.  It is st.id that a young, man once  went oat to seek a wife, and, came fo  a farmhouse where there was more wit  thtin money. The only thing of which  the farmer could boast was one new  sleeve to his coat. This must be made  the most of.  "Pray take a seat," he said, hospitably. "But this room is shockingly  dusty," and so saying, he went about  wiping tables and benches with his  new sleeve, while he carefully kept  the old one behind him.  His wife possessed one new shoe, and  one only, bul she made the most of it  by pushing (he furniture iu place with  it and keeping the other hidden beneath her skirts. "It is very untidy  here," she said. "Everything is out  of  place."  Then they called to the daughter fo  como and put things to rights. But  the only new thing she. possessed was  a cap. So she kepi putting her head  in a,t the door, and nodding and nodding.  "For my part," she said, "I can't bo  everywhere at  once."  Thus lhey all tried to make the  young man behove that tho household  was well-to-do.  One cannot 'but think that the  methods of Siberia and Holland aro  most likely to lead to happiness in  the end.

From tbe News, Alexandria^ Ont.   ,  There is no more popular hotel clerK  in'   Eastern    Ontario  than Mr. Peter  McDonoll,  of the Grand Union Hotel,  Alexandria.     At tho present timo Mr.  McDonoll is in the enjoyment of per-  feot health,   and a   stranger meeting  him for tho first timo could not imagina  that a man  with tbe healthy    glow and1 ,  onergetio    manner   of1   Mr.   McDonell  oould ovor have felt a symptom of disease, v   Thero is a story, however, __ir*  connection  with the splendiddog'reoot  health attained by him Lhat Is worth'  telling.   It is a well known fact that)  a   few, years ago he was the    victim  of the most exorucialing pains of rheumatism.   Knowing these facts a Newa  reporter oallod on Mr. McDonell    for  th6 purpose of eliding fuller particulars.     Withnut hesitation he attributed  his  present sound state of health    to  the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for  Pale    People.     "I    am"    said' he   33  years of age, but threo years ago I did  not expect   to live this long.     At lhat  time I   was connected with the Commercial  hero and  as part of my   duties  was to drive tho  busses  to and from  the C. A. B.   station, I was exposed to  all kinds of weather and subjected to  tho sudlon extremes of heat and. cold.  Along in the early1 spring I was suddenly attacked with tho most terrible  pains in my limbs and body.   I sought  relief  in  doctors  and   then   in patent  medicines,   but all to no purpose;  nothing seemed to afford  erlief. For    two  months I was a helpless invalid, suffering constantly lhe  moat  excruciating  .pains.   My hands    and    feet   swellod  and I was  positive  the end  was   approaching.   My heart was effectedand  indeed I was almost in despair, whon  fortunately a, friend of our family recommended  the use  of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills.   I began us.ing them in Mayi  18BG,  ami  had   taken   three  boxes  before I noticed   any   change,   but  from  that  time   every  dose  counted.      The  blood  seemed   lo   thrill    through   my,  veins, and by tho time I had finished  the fifth  box  every  trace of  tho  dis-  oase had vanished.   Ever since thon I  havo beeD working hard and frequent^-  ly long overtime, but have continued  in  excellent  health.    Whenever  I feel  tlie slightest symptom  of the  trouble  I use. the pills for a da'yl or so and soon  feel as well ae ever.

Dlsllnsiilslied by'Many Acts or Heroism���������  Proverbially Domestic litHttitct���������Punishment Tor Iurrncllnii or Virtue.  The foremost place  among the varies Christian nationalities cannot but  '... bo assigned to the Greeks on account  of lheir intellectual superiority. Physically, as well as mentally, the Greek  women of lo-day exhibit the characteristic traits of fch'eir Hellenic ancestry,  and  types of  almost  classical  purity,  arc constantly to be met with, not only  tho  free Hellas, but also in parts  of  tho Oitoman Empire.     In certain localities, and more particularly in Macedonia, the Greek type has no doubt  ^ much    deteriorated    from ��������� admixture  wilh Slav and olher foreign elements.  It has, however, remained almost perfect in many of the islands, and some  of tho finest specimens ot tho race are  to be found in Asia Minor, not on fhe  seaboard alone, but in many towns and  villages of the interior.  ' (   The heroism which the long struggle  'for independence called forth in    the  Greek men was shared by their mothers, their sisters, and their daughters,  , The domestic history of these troubled  times is faithfully and graphically   recorded in the folk songs ot this suffering people,  and to these spontaneous  outburst   of untutored feeling  we must-  turn to hear how, lhe wife of tho Kle-  p'ht .chieftain waited  with  great   im-1  patience far news of 'him, or lamented  him  as dead;  was  carried  captive   to  the harem of the Turkish General, or,  rather  than submit  to    such  a fate,  precipitated herself and her child over  some precipice.     During tho protracted ck go ol Misdolongkl the women and  "'" girls aided the defenders by bringing  materials of every  description to stop  broaches  made by   the Turkish  artillery.      One of the surviving heroines  ��������� of this famous siege, who died in Athens some GO years' later, expressod on  her deathbed a wish to be buried in the  pallikar's  dress which  she  had  worn  during the   war"   and   had over since  treasured in secret.      The Greek poet  Kostas Palamas has made Ibis incidont  the subject of a long poem,  in  which  he    describes   how    Captain    Philio's  ' daughter donned at her father's command the full white kilt, braided vest  and jacket and felt capote, and stood  in lhe breach at his side, pistol in hand,  while   he  directed  his cannon  at   the  enemy.     Her father slain, sho had escaped in one of Lha many sorties with  t'he  assistance of a comrade, who   afterward becamo 'her husband.  Nor  was tho outbreak on Pelion   in  1878 without its heroines.    The daughters  and sisters of  t'he    patriots   not  only braved tho whizzing rifle bullets  and    the    risk of    eaplure  to    carry-  food and water to  their relatives    in  the inirenchinents, but", as one of their  own  folk-songs records,   would  t'hem  selves on occasions, "bravely fight and  gladly strive for Freedom." The name  of one girl, Marighitza, a native of the  village   of Makrinitza,   on    the     hills  above Volo, now Greek territory, was  more especially mentioned for intrepi  dity,  and when  the  insurrection  was  over  sire was  sent  for  lo  Athens  to  be  presented to the King and Queen  and  FETED BY THE INHABITANTS.  A far more sensational story, bow-  ���������ever, is that of a woman named Per-  islera, "T'he Pigeon,"'who was an  actual combatant in the rebellion, during which her brother met his death.  On'the, occasion of hostilities this wo-  ; man joined a band of brigands and became their leader under the name of  "Vanghelli,'. to which her followers added    the  6ib.br'quel,   of    Spano,:   "The  Beardless.''     After   pursuing the calling of Klepjhlt for some two years without her sex being discovered she finally gave, in her submission to the an-,  tlhorities, was pardoned and became,a  domestic  servant in  tlh'e  household of  the Bishop of Kodjani.     A photograph  taken    at the    time represents her , in  full   Klepht   costunie���������sword,    pistols  and yataglhan at waist, gun in  hand  and suspended round her neck   the insignia  of c'hieftianskip,  a large silver,  disk bearing in relief a representation  of  the Greek patron Saint George  in  his conflict with the Dragon.  Such heroic qualities, however, are  only brought to the surface by.exceptional circumstances, for the virtues of  the Greek women generally aro essentially domestic.

The fond  brother would build* for his sister a  mausoleum in which sho could sit at  ease, look forth on the green earth  and hear the birds singing. And the  young wife . complains that her' husband has abandoned "her and wedded  instead "Lhe Black Earth." But, as  a rule, thc lost ones are mourned as  carried off by the vindictive and remorseless Charon from homo and  friends and all the joys and pursuits of  the upper world to his dreary realm  of Hades.  The mourning worn by the Greeks  is of a most austere character, especially among the middle and lower classes. Ornaments are rigidly set aside,  and all articles of dress are of the  plainest black    materials,    cotton    or  woolen, and made in thc most simple  fashion possible. In some . districts; on  the deathof; a relative tliey send all  their' linen and handkerchiefs to    the  dyers, the result, as *msiy be supposed,  being funeral in the extreme.' Women,  too,  frequently cut  off their  hair  at  the death of their husbands and bury  it with thelm; men, on the other hand,  allow their beards to grow as. a sign  of sorrow.     Mourning is also worn for  a    considerable   period.      Girls.  after.  their   fathers'  death   do not  abandon  their mourning until they marry, and  widows and elderly  women   invariably  retain   it  as   their   peranlanent   attire.  For in many country districts custom  does not allow woniien to enter a second  time  into  wedlock,  and  a widow  who    venture  thus  to violate    public  opinion  would be   treated with  scant  respect by her neighbors for the rest  of her days. -  STICK OUT THEIR TONGUES.

A honr "hooting party, on the track  of bruin in the south hills, Thursday,  killed more powder than bears.

The Nelson Tribune says that Thc  Review has been devoting too much  space to it (Tribune). True; when  game is badly winged much less powder will bring it down.  The miners of New Denver will form  a union.  "Papa" played by the Stuart & Bird  Company drew a crowded house at  Spencer's ball last night.  Mr. Bennett, of the Palace saloon,  upon the return of Mr. Walmsley from  thc East, will take up the management  of the Humbler-Cariboo mine.  There are cigars and cigars, but if  you really want a good healthy smoke,  of a cigar that will not rob your purse,  you will use thc "Interior" or ''La  Morena" manufactured by the Inland  Cigar Manufacturing Co. of Kamloops.  One trial carries conviction.  If the intellectual giant up tho  gulch will only make an estimate  of what the railways of Canada will  cost at 510,000 per mile, lie will be  in a better position to show how the  Conservative party, or any other party  of Canada, will be able to purchase tho  railways of the country. We do not  intend to.argup the question with him,  for kicking af, "nothing is yery straining,*to say the least of it.  The city council arc trying to make  the Provincial' government bear the  expenses of what is culled the "small-  | pox epidemic." There certainly is no  reason that Sandon should bear them.  Thc case did not originate in the city.  It had its origin at a mine outside the  city, in the unorganized territory, and  the patient might as well have gone to  Kaslo or Nelson as here. Because he  chose to come here and the city hud  to go to the expense to protect the citizens, is no reason its people should  bear the burden.  ^rtr^^^^i^if?if?rt^^rk^rt^^  Established in 3892.

A copy of the Statistical Year-book,  for 1S98, issued by the Dcpt. of Agriculture, Ottawa, has been received at  this office. The issue is more complete  than any of its predecessors, and is full  of statistics interesting to all public  and ba-jiness men, publishers, etc.   :  Messrs.,Moody and Wilkins, volunteers from Kaslo, came into the city-on  Sund.-iy bound for the Transvaal. They,  were joined at Revelstoke' by the contingents from the south and west.  There does not appear to be .my one in  Sandon who is anxious to stop Boer  bullets.  The report that the mine owners of  the Sloean are trying to reduce wages is-  simply misleading and untrue-. They  formerly paid. 35 cents per hour, and  they now 'offer'?/"������ cents. They never  asl^cd for a reduction 01 hours in the  day. Restore the day,'to ten hours  again and they 'will as gladly as ever  pay the. $3.50. Is tliis an indication  of a desire on their part to reduce  wages?  Alter a rest of several weeks,.the  band, has resumed its practices. Wc  understand that some of the mining  officials and a few of tlie citizens,-who  appreciate a-good thing and recognizing the impossibility of eight or ten  members keeping up the necessary expenses of such an institution, are at  the botwnii of the resumption of ''bus-  inees" and have very generously proffered their support.  Jit>. Griffith, while on his way to tho  Queen !*i-hs uti Wednesday, had a little  adventure of his own.    While at a very  diingi-i-ous part, of the trail  his  horse  .stumbled am! Jim, thinking tobogg.111-  ��������� ing po'ii: sport  out of season, cleared  the stiii'Sli- in time to sec the horse roll  down about 250 foot.    With' some  assistance,  and the aid of ropes  the ani-  .mnl  was got back on  the trail, some:  ..what ciit and bruised   but still in tlie  v ring.  Tho Editor had a talk with  a-mem-  ber 01 the   Miners'Union,   the   other  day, on the advisability of taking, incapable 'anil inexperienced men   into  the unions,' and his reply was, "If we  don't  t.-ikci them in,   the owners will'  hire  l-hi.-m. at ���������:'<!>, though experienced  men .worth a dollar' a day more are refused .?>.."<(), and work their mines witii  them.    We take them in,  not because  they  nr-j miners, but iii   self, protection."
