 It  1(1/  I'd  Ii;.  lit  ft/  P'  If-  I''  10  _>o  *-���������  VOL 3.      NO. 15.  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1899.  FIVE CENTS.  Advanced by Many of the Supporters  of the Miners' Side in the' ���������  Present Crisis.  One of the great "arguments" adopted by those who champion the cause  of the miners^-in the Slocnn and Nelson  , Divisions in their present "strike" is,  *-i that having regard to the profits derived from mining, it is manifestly to  the interest of British Columbia that  the mine workers, who are residents of  the Province, should be more particularly considered than alien shareholders, who have absolutely no stake  ���������i ��������� in the country outside of tho stockholdings in question. Like most of  the reasoning adduced bv the miners'  unions and their supporters, this is  based on a fallacy. It presupposes  that mines would be operated under  any or all conditions.   Looking) at the  ��������� matter, however, from a matter of fact  standpoint, one is confronted with the  , question, what are the inducements  which lead to the investment, or rather,  risking of capital in mining ventures ?  The answer to this undoubtedly is, the  big chances offered by this class of en-  > terprise, beyond all others,   of  large  . profit earning. The capitalists of a  mining country as a  field for invest-  ��������� ment can only, from the point of view  of the ordinary invest-sr, be judged by  the standard of the number and lm-  ., portance of its dividend-paying mines.  If these are inconsiderable, and the  results as regards returns are unsatisfactory, capital, with natural caution,  seeks elsewhere for openings where  tho opportunities appear to be more  favorable. There is no demand for  labor unites capital creates it, and,  consequently, any attempt to antagonize capital by unnecessary restrictions  or unjust demands has generally a  retroactive tendency, necessarily injurious to the community  as a whole.  ��������� Thus the policy adopted by New Zealand governments of late years,- of  introducing legislation to benefit the  laboring classes,' has, by limiting the  scope of capital, had a diametrically  opposite effect; and not only has enterprise   in   every  direction been  sadly  . curtailed and crippled, but labor there  now actually commands a lesser price.  Comparing British Columbia with the  Transvaal, we find, it is true, that the  mining industry in the latter country  is seriously  hampered with more irksome laws and is further subjected to a  very heavy taxation.   It may. therefore, be argued   that notwithstanding  these   drawbacks,    capital,   as   represented, at least by the British investor,  has in consequence displayed certainly  no verv marked timidity  in engaging  in mining enterprises in the field, nor  yet  when the restrictions were made  even more severe, of withdrawing from  the country.    Of course the reply to  this is that the mining industry of the  Hand had been well established on a  permanent and profitable basis before  the imposition of a heavy taxation on  the output of the mines  by the Boer  government.   In this country, on the  , other hand, mining is still in  the first  stages of industrial development, and  comparatively few of our mines oper  ated  by British capital are yet on a  dividend-paying busis; a not inconsiderable proportion of British Columbia  properties controlled in London being,  unhappily   either "wild-cats" or over  capitalized.   Intact, it is possible, we  ', believe/ to count the number ,of  bur  regular diyidend-paying mines  owned  by either British or American mining  companies   on   the   fingers   of   both  hands.     Yet it is asserted   that   the  working   miner,   who   suddenly   and  quite unwarrantably "dtrikes" because  mine owners  refuse to pay him   the  same wage for eight hours as for ten, is  entitled . to  more consideration   than  the alien shareholder,  who has risked  his money,   and   in   the   majority of  "-'���������iiies, as yet,   got notning in return.  The alien shareholder is very likely to  come to the conclusion  that if that is  the opinion of the conntry they can do  without him  altogether.   In such an  event miners' unions would be quite as  useless  aud, certainly, no more ornamental than the abandoned and rusting  mine  machinery, whose wheels they  had  been'instrumental in stopping.'���������  Mining Record.  haB hitherto been taken from the  .Rambler-Cariboo was, extracted above  the 100-foot level. There are still large  reserves of ore above the 100-foot level.  In order to tap the ore body 115 feet  below, the 100-foot level, the tunnel  is about 400 feet in length, was driven.  Another object which it was desired to  obtain, was to get rid of the water.  The mine is located in a basin, and as  a consequence, there is ' considerable  water in the workings. The pumping;  of this water was costly, and as soon  as the 100-foot level is connected with  the lower tunnel there will be no more  bother i'ron-r the water, ns it will run  out through the tunnel. The ore body  in the face of the lower tunnel is fou'r  feet in width, and the ore is of high  grade. The ore chute has a horizontal  length of 200 feet on the 100-foot level,  and the presumption is that it will  show'an equal lengtn on the 225-foot  level. If this is true the management  estimates that there will be found to be  $750,000 worth of ore in tho mine above  the 225-foot level. Of this there is said  to be ������250,000 worth above the 100-foot  level.���������Exchunge News.  JH If 0RIT SHE.  The Sunshine Uncovers, a Rich Yein  on Its.Second'Level.

McArthur resigning the  auditorship.  The council adjourned until Wednesday's special meeting.  Although  there-is but little mining  being done around   tlio' camp,   assur:  ances  are daily being unearthed,' that  Sandon must yet become a marvel as a  mining centre.   On almost every one  of the forty or more properties around,  that either have shipped or could ship  at  any  time, ample prcparat'ons are  being   made   for    extensive   mining  whenever actual work begins.   In short  it would be safe to say that when operations fully open there will ,be a demand for half us many more men in  the camp as  were ever employed before.   One of the last properties  to develop a most important strike is the  Sunshine, in its second level nnd quite  close to  the surface.   It is 20 inches,  almost the full width of the ledge, of  solid galena, yielding 246 oz. silver, 70  per cent lead and a value in grey copper.   This means a very high value to  the output, even at present prices of  silver and lead.   When their concentrator is built and running, with immense   quantities of . ore   coming,  in  from the Ivanhoe and Sunshine groups,  the operations of these two properties  will be of great value to the city.   The  new road  to the Ivanhoe has reduced  the distance from the city to  a little  over two miles, while the Sunshine is  not more than one mile.  A. C. McArthur, who has been C. P. It,  agent here for over three years and is  leaving to take charge at Rossiand,  with a gold chain and charm as a  mark of their esteem for him as a citizen and an ofiicial. Short addresses  were delivered by several, all clothed  in expressions of regret at losing a citizen so universally respected for his  uniform courtesy to all with whom he  hud either private or ofiicial dealings-.  The guest l'elt considerably overcome  by this spontaneous overflow of goodwill, but managed to recount many of  the incidents of pioneer days, in his  usual humorous style, and concluded  by assuring all that he would ever bold  in. respectful memory his many friends  and their many kindnesses to himself  and family during their more than  three years' residence in the city.  We may here remark Mint Mr. McArthur and family have<;* the best  wishes of our citizens, one and all, for  their future prosperity in Rossiand, or  wherever else they may from time to  time decide on taking up their residence.  MINES AND MINI  Musical Criticism.  SPECIAL MEETING.  A special council meeting was held  in the council chamber on Wednesday  evening, Sept. 13, for the purpose of  considering the accounts and other  matters in connection with the creek  improvements.

They have the trail, which - can  be widened to a wagon road at amj.ll  cost later .on, _fully compli-iea,���������andva  start made on the delivery, of. the compressor plant. About 20 men are now  employed, but all on outside work.  They are shortly to commence a 1100-  foot cross-cut that will strike the lead  some' 255 feet below where the present  chief cross-cut strikes it. It will be  commenced nearly opposite the bunk-  house, and the compressor, for which  the excavation is now .nearly completed, will be some 700 feet below  that cross-cut again. This will give  the company immense working power  at their very extensive property. We  expect to have lull particulars of the  concentrator.iu a few days.  In music, as in most other things, it  requires education to be a fair critic ;  and still after a concert in any small  place like Sandon every one is a critic,  and pronouncing  So and Sd "the best  singer."   Of bourse   no   paper   would  criticise any singer harshly, when the  offers  were all voluntary and often for  charitable purposes.   No one voice is |  good for all clases of music.   The voice  that has range and is trained for classical music cannot give   the effect to  coon songs that many people look for ;  but training always gives shades, modulation,   articulation and   pronunciation, that always give better execution  to any piece of music.   It is no proof  that because a singer may capture the  masses with plantation ditties that he  or she is a capable singer.   As a matter of fact,   those who have charge  of  entertainments in small places, where  money is the object, generally secure  the singers that "take" with the listeners ; but this is no proof at all that the  singing .is good.   Some singers retain  local success by selecting the music to  which' their voices give   best effect.  Others make a mistake in that particular, and do not reach the same success,  even though better   singers   from an  educated point of view.  Sn'ndon dealers fire sending considerable supplies to'Wilson Creek.  The Madison ore referred to in another article assayed 509 oz. silver and  79 per cent lead.  About 25 men are working at the  Payne, some on surface work and  others on contracts.  The Noble Five is going to be organized under the laws of B. C. Steps to  that end will be taken before long.  There are about 200 men all told  working at the mines tributary to Sandon ; but little shipping is done. The  public may look for'an immense rush  whatever time the mines do open.  At the present time there are some  12 men working on the American Boy,  2 on the Freddie Lee, 3 on the .Ajax  and 12 on,the Ajax Fraction���������all either  on surface or contract work, 10 hours  on the former and 8 on the latter.  The Noble Five has sufficient water  pressure to generate 500 horse power  for drilling, and are now installing  plants at the Last Chance and the Sovereign mines. The Reco company are '  are' also talking of employing it. As  one machine can be operated by two  men and do as much work as six, general adoption will cut off many hand  drillers.

There has been considerable trading  on the Rambler-Cariboo, and the cause  of the incresed demand is the finding of  the ore body in the lower tunnel which  ���������the management has been driving for  tlie past six months.

One of the most important mining  strikes ever made in the camp waa  made by Mr. Warner iri No. 5, or lowest, tunnel oh the Argenta claim of the  Madison group, on Wednesday last.  The strike four feet of almost solid  galena, running high in native silver  with some grey copper���������the assay report will be given in a mining brief.  The massive body was encountpred at  a vertical depth of about 270 feet, giving a stoping depth of 300 feet.  This new discovery is most important to Sandon fer two very substantial  reasons.   Thepropcrty was bought but  a few, months ago by "Montreal parties  lor somo $20,000,   and this will-lead  them   to   place   more money in   the  camp.   It is also important to the city  i;i that, if they desire it.the miners can  live in the city while working at the  mine, as it is  but little more than half  a mile from the northern boundary of  the   place.   A good   wagon   road,   or  trail, up would bring the mine within  a few minutes' walk from town.   What  gives Rossiand, Butte and many other  similar places their growth and activity-is the fact that the miners can live  in town while working, and the present  promise of. the Madison is that it .will  do much  for Sandon in the same direction.

As we instinctively halted, we heard  a low, furious growl. Glancing to the  left, wo ,saw a sight that chilled tho  blood with borrow. ' Twenty foot  down the shore of tho pool, in tho  shade of a rock and overhanging reeds,  crouched a monstrous tigress. Beside  hor was a playful, six-month-old cub.

Perhaps my arm trem-  blod u little���������anyway, tho ball hit tho  cub in the breast and stretched it life  less beside its mother. Tho rage of  the tigress was fearful to see. Her  ������yes grow iLke living coals, and she  roared like a fury. .The next instant  sh? launched herself forward���������straight  toward me. I was actually fascinated  by the sight. My limbs seemed to  have last the power of molion. - As  though in a dream I heard Lucius  cry : '  "Down ! down ! Jump  to one side I"  I think I m'oved a few inches, and  that unconscious aot saved my life. Tho  long, tawny body of the tigress struck  me sidoways and pitched me head foremost   into the   muddy   pool.  As I staggored to my feet, covered  with filth and watar, I heard the roar  of a rifle. Then I saw the tigress  quivering in her doath agonies on tho  ground. She was junto dead beforo I  reached the spot. Lucius stood over  hor .with a smoking riflo in his hand.  His face shone with triumph through-  its pallor.  "That was a splendid shot 1" I exclaimed.  "It was a deucod luckv one," he replied. "You had a closo shave of it.

"'I'l'l Boon get it," I said, and started back to the water.   ;  My legs wore a little shaky, and  my back felt bruised. . I waded out  knoe deep and benb over to grope for  the weapon.- But just then a low cry  from Pandu brought mo stiffly erect.  I heard a threshing noise in - the dry  reeds. It was yet at somo distance. I  hastily rejoined Luoius, and wo looked in the direction of tho sound. A  second later a deep, awful roar echoed  ' through tho jungle- It fairly stood  Dur hair on end. ��������� Pandu's mahogany,  face turned livid.  "The tiger, Sahib I" he gasped. "It  Is coming to avenge its mate and  *ub."  His teeth chattered with every word.  "There, Pandu," exclaimed Lucius,  ''give me your Title���������quick I It has a  longer range."  (He handed his own gun to the  shikaree; but beforo he oould take the  other in exchange, the angry roar  rang out again, ,andi we had a glimpse  of'the tiger as it bounded toward us  oyer the reeds.

"Come back, you rascal I" roared  Lucius.- .������������������;'���������  Pandu never faltered. With a gun  swinging from each hand he bounded  Into the tall resda and vanished. We  unconsciously dashed at the pool, and  floundered across, side by sido. Tho  water came only to our knees. Without looking back wxV plunged up into  the roeds. After a fow slops tho  marshy ground gave way to firm footing, and we wore again in the fastnesses of the jungle. A dismal roar  from the rear, full of blended grief  and rage, sipurrod us to greater sliced.  A furious roar woko the junglo  echoes. It seemed at our vory backs.  "God help us I" cried Lucius. I shiv-  ' ered and nearly foil. He took my arm  And dragged me along. Again an awful roar that mado the ground trem-  ,. ble.    '  But just when a horrible death seemed imminent we staggered into a bit  of cleared space amid tho junglo, and  ���������he-re the scant light revealed the proportions of an iron cage, about eight  feet square 1< iWe gained tho strange  object by a dizzy rush, and Lucius  Jerked open the sliding door. -I remember falling inside in a heap and  hearing tho clang of iron as. tho door  shut fast. And then', oanie a moment of agony. ...  With a stupendous roar, a great tiger  launched himself against the cage, and  ���������clawed iin madness , at the bars until  they rattled and creaked. , Again and  again the .huge- paws dabbed at us.  . Lucius had dragged met to the very  : oentre of the cage. There we crouched and shivered while the beast spat)  and hissed and roared.  Finally, he drew back and prowled  around the caige, peering1 in at us av-  ���������ery few steps.  fWe pluckod up couralg-o a-nd examined our shelter.  ��������� The result was not  encouraging.. The cage was very old  and rusty. Tho bars wore thin. It  seemed to.be merely hanging together.  "The Rajah who brought this here  twelve years ago," said Lucius, "I have  hoard about.

In desperation Lucius whipped out  his pockcf>kn.ife, opened the largest  blade, and struck at tbo creature's  paw, and drew blood, i Tho roar that  followed drove us ,to the furthest cor-  nor of tho cage. .There we trembled  for a moment, whilo the struggling  tiger slipped deeper and deeper between the broken "bars,   i _   I  Suddenly Lucius caught my arm in a  fierce grip.  "The beast is stuck I" ho cried.  "Don't you see ? Now is our chance.  Come on I"  We crept to the door and slid it  open, and banged it to behind us as  we darted out and apod away across  l-the clearing. Roar after roar , rang  ! in our ears, and we heard the rattlo  of bars, and then a heavy crash, and  knew very well that the liberated tiger  had crept to tho ground. At that  moment all hopo seemod gone, and  yet our deliverance was even then at  hand.  As we floundered ,into the junglo wo  saw flashing lightts just, ahead,' and a  circle of familiar faces.   '  What followed was confusion. I remember a volioy of rifle shots, .and  than a loud burst of cheering. Tho  tiger lay dead, and half a dozen officers from tho cantonment were crowding around us. Pandu had gono homo  and guided a rcsouo party; back to the  jungle. Had thoy arrived a few minutes later thoy iwould have found our  mangled bodies.

In his speech at Rossiand Mr. Rilph  Smith "the recognised leader of organised labor in the province," omitted  reference to many matters in connection with mining interests, to which  any man who has the welfare of the  province at heart should give due attention. Any fair ninn will admit  that labor is one of the most important  elements of a country���������that it must be  properly treated and adequately paid,  but it is not the only one. According  to the drift of his remark at Rossiand,  the only question to be settled is good  pay for present Iabor,and he went so far  as to intimate it was within the power  of the legislature to take the developed  mines in the Slocan out of the hands  , of the present owners and operate them  itself. What the courts would be  doing in the meantime, when set to  work by the owners, was to him a mat-  , ter of but little moment. Now every  one knows a silver-lead mine cannot  last forever, and what the miners in  tho country would do when the present  dividend payers worked in that way  became exhausted, he did not' even  surmise.  To our mind, any man who has a regard tor his country, as all M.P.P's  at  least .should have, should look to the  future   as well   as the  present.    We  want capital and  a lot of   it  to  take  hold of our present prospects and work  them till they become dividend payers.  Wc want capital to build refineries and  thus save the very large sum the mine  owners  are paying yearly in freights,  duties etc. to get  their bullion  refined  and returned  to Canada for home  use  and export,  and not a word from   Mr.  Smith as  to how this is to be got.   It  can never begot while the government  continues   tampering and   shystering  with the mining laws leaving capitalists   in   continual   dread   that   every  year's laws   may be worse and more  dangerous   than   those, of  its   predecessors.   As we h'lve said, in previous  issues, the mere matter of 50 cents a  day, though a serious matter to prospect owners with limited capital, is an  item   of  small consequence to   shipping mines, if it ensured good, faithful  men and was proof against further legislative tinkering.  The province has gone into heavy  debts for facilities to develop the mining industry, and now the problem is  seeking the best means of securing  capital to open bur resources. It ean-  not surely, best be got by piling up enactments each one of which is more  .crippling and unsatisfactory than those  immediately preceding.'  On the first indication of Diarrhoea or  Dysentery afewdoses  of Dr.Fowler's Ext.  of Wild Strawberry will promptly  check the advance of  these dangerous diseases.-  It has been over 40 years  in use and 1 t.s no equal fof  the cure of 1 iwel complaints  of young- or >Id. There are  many dang-crous imitations  on the market, so it would be  ��������� wise to see that the full name,  Dr. Fotelcrs Ext. of Wild  Strawberry, is 0*1 every bottle  you buy.  the mines must be worked some time,  and that the owners will have to pay  $3.50. As there is no law fixing the  scale of wages, and but the decision of  the miners required to enforce it, the  same decision could enforce an eight-  hour day without penalties to manacle  their freedom, and declare that they  were incapable of managing their own  affairs. A compulsory measure to  teach men their duty to themselves  appears to be repulsive in this age of  intelligence and enlightenment.  monstrous sum for this people  to bo  called on to provide for."  It was a shame and a disgrace to  spt-nd i?3S,000,000 in 1S9G, but it is a  virtue to spend forty or forty-two millions now. Its readers would like to  see the Kootenaian publish those two  speeches side by side, and express an  honest opinion on the contrast. The  facts are simply these, when the 1S96  speech was made, Sir Richard and  friends wanted office, and they had to  find fault with Tory extravagance to  secure it. Now, however, they arc face  with Grit extravagance, and a defence  must be manufactured to hide it from  the people. . Only this and nothing  more.  THEN AND NOW.-  The Kootenaian publishes with  much gusto a speech of Sir Richard  Cartwright, from which,, the following  is an extract: ,        ,   . ���������'���������.<  "Surely it must be evident.-.'to every  man who will give the subject a second  thought that it would be far better for  Canada to have an expenditure of 40  or 42 millions a year to 11 population  of six or seven millions than to reduce  the expenditure to 35 millions, let us  say, and retain our population of barely five millions here. But, sir, as we  are on this question of population, let  nre here say one thing, I have pointed  out to you ihe extreme slowness.of the  growth of Canada, according to population from 1881 to 1S91. As probably  most of you know, over whole provinces of this Dominion there was no  increase at all."  In the first place it may be noticed  that the population has not increased  to six or seven millions since Sir Rich  ard was in opposition in 1896, when  theTories were in power, here is what  he had then to say:  "For my own part I do not hesitate  to tell him (the Finance Minister) that  I consider a yearly expenditure of $40,-  000,000, or $38,000,000, altogether top  large for the resources of Canada.  ''I say it is a disgrace and a shame  to the government that has been entrusted with our affairs that those  comedown to us and ask for an. expenditure of $38,000,000a year for Federal purposes.  "Sir, the thing is utterly unjustifiable.  ''Sir, there is very little use for honorable gentlemen whining over this  matter.       i   -,.,'���������.    ���������  "They ought to try and meet it, and  the way to meet it is to reduce your  present extravagant mode of government, and to reduce your-extravagant  ideas.  "I have said before, and I repeat it,  that. .*3S,000;000 is, in my judgement, a  When one suggests the repeal of the  penal clauses of the eight-hour law it  will at once be asked, "Where is the  use of a law without penalties for its  non-observance." Penalties in the abstract are all based on the law of compensation for offenses. If a man takes  a life, he is supposed to give his in return. If he steals, he is either fined  sufficient to make a return, with costs  of collection, or imprissoned, to render  an equivalent to the state, and so  on, of all other violations. All penalties are based on an equivalent for  an infraction of justice. If a statutory  day is exceeded in labor, the laborer  has it in his own hand ,tp enforce a  penalty���������to compel an employer to  make recompense for the'extra time  put in. Supposing then, for instance,  there were no specified penalties attached to the B. C. eight-hour law,  those affected would still have it in  their own hands to make and enforce  them on the fundamental, principle  governing such cases���������compensation.  With an eight-hour law without penalties the owners , would have no way  under heaven of compelling men to  work longer than eight hours, if they  did not want to, any more than they  have now of compelling the men to  take $3.00 if they don't want to.do it.  If, on the other hand,'they did want, or  were induced, to work longer than  eight hours, the penalty for asking  them to do it would rest in the hands  of the miners themselves. They say  what compens-.tion was right for an  infraction of the law���������whether it should  be 25, 50 or 75 cents per hour. We  think that viewed from any sensible  standpoint where the settlement of  penalties for the violation of laws lies  in the hands of the parties affected,  there can be no resonable ground for  complaint.      The   miners   say    that  Keep in mind that Scott's  Emulsion contains the hypo-  phosphites.  These alone make it of  great value for all affections  of the nervous system.  It also contains glycerine,  a most valuable, soothing  and healing agent. Then  there is the cod-liver oil, acknowledged by all physicians  as the best remedy for poor  blood and loss in weight.  These three great remedial  agents blended-into a creamy  ���������Emulsion, make a remarkable tissue builder.     ~  50c. and $1.00, all druggists.  SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemists, Toronto.  Hugh John Macdonald, leader of tho  opposition in Manitoba, has said that  he does not propose to give the franchise ��������� to foreigners who cannot   read  English, and he is soundly berated in  some quarters for saying so.'   His contention is, however, sound.   There is a  plea for not withholding it from British  subjects so circumstanced, in that from  long residence  and contact with- the  public they have learned much of our  constitution and laws that foreigners  cannot get without reading.   The franchise���������that which makes and unmakes  the laws of a country���������is a very sacred  thing,   and   should   be handled   with  care.   Very oltcn the votes of a community  may change the entire fiscal  policy of a country, and entail heavy  responsibilities   upon   it   for   unborn  generations to bear.   It is not enough  to say "Even if it is so,   the illiterate  foreigner as well as the learned British  born   subject will have   to   bear   his  share,"   for if the  former*   knew   the  meaning of his vote hemight have cast  it the other   way.   "Manhood suffrage  and universal franchise" sound well on  paper, but when traced to ^heir effect  in any .country, they often do not  look  as  well as they ring.   If Hugh John,  for his country's welfare,   went   even  further than he has gone, and said the  ballot should not bo put into the hands  of men who have not got some kind of  stake in the country to constitute,their  future liability for the   consequences  of their votes, or who,  through being  ignorant of the meaning of the institutions of the country, saddle burdens on  it for future generations to bear.  Some of 'our exchanges are continually ringing 'the changes on'"the mine  owners" in considering the eight-hour  law, as if the working of the present  dividend-paying properties was all  that was involved. As a matter of  fact they are but an insignificant item  in the controversy. Those who have  even but a partial knowledge of the  resurces of the Slocan must be fully  aware that, numerically, the present  producing mines are but a mere index  to what we will have when the country  acquires age and development. The  question is then more what laws will  assist and what laws will cripple the  in come of the required capital and  enterprise to do the work. Shortening  hours the world over shortens wages,  arid lowering wages is the .first' step  towards the crippling of any country ;  and continual changing of laws is always a menace to the encouragement  of capital. As matters stood under the  old law,capital was forging its way into  the Slocan at a rapid rate. The men  were satisfied, and changes were fast  being made at all the mines to make  them comfortable and contented. All  this is now changed, and there are  prints which say it is best for the  country. What man is there, who has  the true interests of the country at  heart, that believes it ?  Nelson Tribune:  "Why do not the business men of  the country bring pressure to bear on  the two men who are responsible _ for  the non-working of the shipping mines  of the Slocan. A strongly worded resolution passed by the.boards of trade at  Rossiand, Nelson, Kaslo and Moyie  might have o good effect."  The business men do not interfere  for the good reason that they know it  is no more their business to ask any  of the mine owners to open and close  their mines than it is for them to ask  John Houston to open or close his  print shop against his will.  If we can judge correctly, six months  will not have elapsed before the lieut.-  governor will call on Joseph Martin to  form a new government, and W. W, B.  Melnnes will be one of his colleagues.  Let our readers preserve this and see if  we are not telling the truth. It should  then be a union of all those who desire  to see the province, grow and prosper  against an irresponsible band of fire  eaters, whose only aim will be to  stir up the worst blood of the whole  country. ;  The man whose home  is "menaced by.midnight  marauder's isn't slow to  grasp a weapon to defend it. The same man  when threatened by an enemy  ten , thousand  times more  dangerous, will  calmly go his  way and make  no effort at de-  fence. The  most dangerous of all mankind's enemies  is consumption.  There is but  one effective  weapon with  which to combat this grim  destroyer. It  is Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.  It cures gS per cent, of all cases of consumption, bronchitis, asthma, laryngitis,  weak lungs, spitting of blood and throat  and nasal troubles. Thousands have testified to their recovery under this remedy  after they were given up by the doctors,  and all hope was gone. Many of these  have permitted their experiences, names,  addresses and photographs to be printed in  Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical Adviser. Any sufferer may write to them.  .The " Golden Medical Discovery" is the  great blood-maker and flesh-builder. It  makes the appetite hearty, the digestion  and assimilation perfect, the liver active,  the blood pure and rich with the life giving  elements of the food and the nerves strong  and steady. Acting directly on the lungs,  it drives out all impurities and disease  germs. It is alsl- a wonderful medicine for  3JI nervous troubles. Sold by all dealers  in medicine. l  Jno. M. Ilite, of Audubon, Audubon Co., Iowa,  says: " I took a severe cold which .settled on my  lungs aud chest. Several of our best physicians  gave up all hopes of mv recovery. I would cough  and spit blood for hours. I took Dr. Pierce's  Golden Medical Discovery aud recovered."  Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical  Adviser is a book of 1,008 pages and over  three hundred illustrations. This book is  free. You may have it in all its usefulness,  and in strong paper covers, for 31 one-cent  stamps, which pays the cost of customs  and mailing only, or iu cloth binding for  50 stamps.

But Lilas Lanrpier was not, in tlie  striot seinse of the word, the ohild of  working parents. Her father was a  Frenchman���������a    Eronoh    "patriot"    of  and  great want of judgment. He hnd  been compelled to escape from France  with his child, whose mother had been  arr> English danoor and had died soon  after tho birth oi her daughter. Tho  poor exile tried hard to get work and  failed.    Ho was restless and excitable,  I and at length, unable to endure his  exile a-ny longer, he left his ohild in  the oaro of some distant, relatives of  his lato wife, while ho himself went  back to Paris. What became of him  there* those whiofin he had promised to  writa ta in England did not'know. Ho  might be in prison; he might be dead  for aught thoy know���������almost for all  tihey cared.  Lilas would have liked her* fathor to_,  bo wil(a hor, but she had no great  love for (him. Jndeed that young person's affections wore principally centred in herself. Sho had shelter and  food from her mother's cousin, whom  sho called aunt, and such clothes as  her relative could afford to give her,  and she nursed tho children, worked  about the house and was treated neither belter nor worse than if sho had  been Mrs. Flood's  eldest daughlor.  So >nuch for one of our heroines*  She means to bo a lady, a lady, according to her ideal of ono. To have  fine clothes, dainty food, a soft couch,  nothing to do, and every wish and  whim gratified, as soon as it oan bo  formed, that is Lilas Lampier's notion  of being a lady, and of tho life that  a lady, should live.  Eva Randolph's <deas aro widely different. The lover* that is to help her  onward in life is 'hard work, strengthened by self-denial.  By earnest seeking after all that is  true and noble, and by eradicating anything that is base and unworthy in  her nature, sho hopes to succeed. And  poor Eva is worse than being simply  an orphan, for her father's death left  . her to the tender mercies of a step-  greajti and noble women and to try to   molher   who  wou*c*   have sent her  to  Via 1   ��������� !��������� a.

"I ?" said "the girl thus addressed,  opening hor round, gray eyes and with  a half-vacamt, half-dreamy expression  af countenance, as though she were  peering into the future. "I mean to  oe a lady."  'A lady I" echoed the three who had  spoken. "How aro you going to man-  ago that? Where's tho money to come  fiom ?"  'I don't think.it is money that makes  a lady," replied Eva, in the same  dreamy manner; "my dear mamma  used to toll mo that money wouldn't  dtat it."  "Them bbw will you set about it?"  questioned the others.  "I mean tb work hard and to teach  myself, and to get other people lo teach  me, and always to do what is just and  right.    And I mean    to    read    about  bo like  them.   II will be    very 'hard  work, builr I shall do it."  "But ladies don't work," objected  Mary Matthews, who, although sho  had great faith in Eva's talent and industry, yet could not (help thinking  thar. her plans for tho future were, to  say ihe least, extremely .visionary.  "Some ladies do," replied Eva, confidently ; "Ivo heard that tho tjueen  works- very hard, and then the ladies  who went out in tho war last year to  nu.rse Hhe sick soldiers, see how they  must have worked. I think ladies do  a great deal ot work, and 1 mean lo  be ono, and. I mean to work."  "Well, wo shall see," laughed Mary  Matthews, "Bui now there's only one  more of you, beside mo. What aro you  going to be, Lilas ?"  "I shall be the same as Eva,",was  the reply, uttered in all apparent seriousness. ;'   .'  fluitl at this the other girls laughed  aloud, and not wilthout some malice in  their mirth, far Lilas Lampier was the  most idle, selfish and sensual, as she  was,by far the best loo-king girl in the  party. Her hair was golden, her eyeB  were dark, with heavy silken brows  and lashes. Her complexion was like  the warm pink,glow inside a sea shell,  and her featuires bid fair to be firm  and delicate. >  But she was only twelve years of  age, and she was very dirty at the pre-  spant moment, for the baby she had  been carrying had contrived to bespatter her with tho mud from which she  had more than once rescued him, and  to which he had managed to return  while she had been talking.  "You needn't laugh," she said, hotly,  irritated, by their very frank remarks; "I ain/t a fool, and I'm as good  looking as any of you."  "Yes, motner says you're far too  good looking to come to any good," retorted Susan Harper.  "Your mother is a spiteful old cat,  and you may tell her I Say so," retorted Lilas, losing her temper, "no one  could blame her for good looks, and if  what some lolks says is true, not for  goodness neither." ,  To this Susan retorted; by springing  tojhe.r feet iinu passion and tearing off  Lilas Lampier's hat.  What further damage she meditated  I, cannot say, foi the shrieks of the  small children, under the care of these  five girls became so shrill and piercing  with terrorat tho prospect of a fight  between their guardians that hostilities had at once to be suspended until  sileince could be restored.  Beforo the girls could recommence  their discussion a huge bloodhound  came bounding into the midst of the  group, scaring the little ones out of  their wits, and terrifying even the elder girls.  Lilas was the only one of the party  who  retakrod hor presence of    rnind;  but  she knew  the dog,  and she  now  called it by name."  "Leo I   Leo I"  The animal looked at her and gave  his tail a condescending wag ot recognition, but he did not care for shabbily  dressed people, and probably he; was  no (judge of feminine beauty, so he did  not approach the girl even when she  held out her hand to him. i  Before she coaild repeat the iinvita-  tion, however, a young man had leaped  the gate which led into the meadow,'  ami seeing- at a glance the consternation whioh his four-footed companion's  presence had produced, he called him  off, and then approaching the group,  said:  "J. hope my dog hasn't    frightened  you; he wouldn't bite."  "Oh I   I   .wa-o't   frightened,"    said  the workhouse, but that the parish authorities would then have taken care  that the girl's share of her father's  property should bo applied to her  use.  Mr. Randolph had died without a  will. He had no near relatives, and  Eva was left to tho care of hor stepmother. Mrs. Randolph's widowhood  did not' last long. ,-Her first husband  had been a surgeon: her second was  a small shopkeeper. Mr. Church, when  he married her, quite understood the  condition of affairs, and willingly accepted the responsibility.  A Jittle ready money was vory useful to a man in business, nnd a small  inoome from houses which, though they  could1 not ,*ne sold, could bo let to tenants too simplo to ask for proof of  his rightl to receive the rent, helped to  cover many expenses, and to enable  him to put away money against a  "rainy day.  There was no one to grumble or to  bring the dishonest couple to book.  Eva did not know she was being robbed. Sho was told every day of her  life that1 sho was eating the bread of  charity, and she believed it, and she  worked hard, harder than any servant  would have done, to satisfy herself  that she carried her-food and shelter., c . .. ���������':,; ' ..     ���������'���������'���������,..

" Ho was  a surgeon at Trebourne; so I married  beneath me whon I took a second husband, as you see, ma'am.'  "Algernon Randolph I' repeated Mis.  Westbrook, while something liko an  expression of pain passed over her'  countenance. "And so he is dead I"  sthe added; "and this is his daughter ?"  "Yos, ma'am, Did you know him ?"  asked Mrs. Church, in alarm, for it  suddenly ocourred to her that any  friends of her late husband might become unpleasantly curious as to tho  amount of property he possessed when  h-d died.  "Yos, I knew hi'm," said Mrs. West-  brook, sadly, "but it was long before  he was married���������when ho was bub a  yiouiug man, in fact; but I shall bo  glad to help his daughter. Will you  come up lo my house to-morrow at ten  o'clock, my dear ?"  "Yes, ma'am," replied Eva, grateful  for tlhe chatngod tone of kindness, al-  mosl; of affection, which tho lady now  used toward her.  The chainye was due to tho respect  in which her dead father was held, and  she valued it upon this account tar  more than if it had been brought about  by ainy personal regard for herself. So  Mrs. Westbrook wont away, a'nd Eva  returnde to ihor room.  But Mrs. Clhurch was ill at ease.  OvielP and over again sho assured her-  aelf thai no one oould blame hor ior  appropriating to heir (own use tho  money that legally belonged to her  stepdaughter. Sho gave hor a homo  and she and her husband only appropriated: tho girl's share of her father's  property, and exacted two-thirds of all  the money she earned at her laco work  in return.  (Mrs. Church knew that the girl's  .own property entitled her to good  clothing and a fair education, quite as  well as any ono could fell- hor so, but  for five years she had gone her dishonest way unquestioned, and it certainly  would be extremely inconvenient if  any investigation were to take place  mow.  "What could Mrs. Westbrook know  of her late husband t", she wondered.  "Was the groat lady aware that he  bad a small income independent.of his  profession?" And, worse still," "Did  she know that he had died intestate?"  A's she pondered these questions,  Mrs. Church thought of making her  hustoand a sharer in hor anxiety, but  second thoughts convinced hor that she  had best bo silent. Mr. Church was  nob ant amiable man ; he was scraping  together a vory nice little fortune,  and it was moro than likely that if  he thought there was any .danger of  losing Eva's money, he would, by some  imprudewl step, precipitate the very  orrsis they both dreaded, for he greatly  disliked the. girl whom, he'was daily  robbing, .and he grudged every mouthful''of food that she ate. '     ,    '  'So Mrs. ChilToh said nothing to her  husband about Mrs. Wostbrook's visit,  except that she wanted Eva to mend  game lace for her, and that the girl  wa|si  Cof go; up   to   the Grange   to   do  it,:. , ���������.-��������� ���������  (To Be Continued.)  .:������������������*: CHAPTER II.  The day after the conversation ' of  these girls had taken place Eva Randolph sat in her own room, busily at  work upon some delicate laco, in the  making of which she was remarkably  clever.  Her fingers were very rapid in their  movements, but her thoughts l had  wandered far away from hor occupation. She was wishing that sho had  time and money wherewith to get a  good education, and thinking thus, her  mind soon traveled beyorJ the question  of waysi and .means, and sne had given  herself up to the building of some  very airy nasties, when the harsh voice  of her stepmother roused hor from her  day-dreams.  " Eva, come down,, you're wanted I'  shouted Mrs.; Church.  The girl dropped her work, and descended the stairs, to find in the best  sitting-room, tho Honorable Mrs.West-  brook, the mother of the young man  whose bloodhound had startled her and  her companions the previous afternoon.  She was a tall, proud-lookrng woman  with fair hair, blue eyes, and largo,  regular features, and She bore about  with' her (an air of perfect satisfaction  that it had , pleased Heaven to make  her superior to all her follow creatures. ��������� ' ;.  Completely assured upon this point,  Mrs. Westbrook could afford to be gracious to her inferiors, and she now  condescended to smile kindly upon Eva,  as she said: ,  " So you are  the little Iacemaker ?"  " Yes, ma'am,' replied the girl, looking up brightly,   instead  of dropping  a courtesy,  as  any other girl  in  her  station  would . have   done.  A slight (frown contracted the lady's  face, but second thoughts transformed it into a smile, and she next asked:     ���������  "Are yon as clever at mending laco  as you' are said to ba at making it?"  "I don't know,  ma'am.   I am  very  fond of mending old lace," replied the  girl.  " Then I shall get you to mend  sitme lace for me," said Mrs..

Lo Ben was induced to como again  to the window, but ho evidently did  not see anything at all attractive- "I  am afraid; we shall, all die to-day; oh,  my father. Why vroa't it go down?"  he said.

FAMIM OF THE FUTURE,  PLOWING AND  HARVESTING WILL  BE DONE BY ELECTRICITY.  ForcliiK Houses Win Be l'slnt-lUIicd tor  Stliiiiilactiig Vegetables and i'Jowers-  I'licru Are ������'reut Changes Coming for  the 'f'lllci of Hie soil.'  '  The model farm of to-morrow and  ot tho future muse avail itself of the  most economical systems of plant  propagation, and tho geomagnelifore  must play an important part fn its  workings, ffjjnoalh the rich soil in the  gardens where tho dolicato vegetables aro growing networks of invisible wires are laid, collecting and distributing the atmospheric electricity  to all the plants.  Iu tho forcing housos similar arrangements aro mado. for stimulating  the winter vegetables- and flowers for  the market, whilo overhead powerful  arc lights make' the n.'ght' as brilliant  as day and help to mature tho plant  growths in half tho regular time required by nature. In the fields of  wheat and corn tho more poworful  current from a storage house work  out similar results, lessening the season of growth and doubling tho yield  per acre. Excessive drought and the  danger from labo'. and early frosts are  thus partly avoided on tho electric  farm, whilo, if necessary, two crops  can be rai.ed in ono season where foim-  eriy. only- ono, could bo grown. The  electric power than tho farmer has at  his command enables htm to regulate  tho growth oD his plants to suit the  season or the markets. Ono porlion of  tho garden can bo forced, while the  other half is kept back several weeks.  Thore is no limit to the use of tho  now invisible power which he gathers  from the atmosphere around him or  generates from the wasted forces of  the neighboring stream of water. This  leads to the examination of tho source  of the now power that propels the machinery , on  the  farm.  A SMALL STREAM OF WATER, j  that formerly flowed across the farm  iu an irregular, course, fertilizing the  lower meadows and irrigating the up-  iand distrrcls, has been widened and  deepened noar its source, forming a  large storage reservoir. This -artificial pond has been dammod at ils  lower end, and as the water tumbles  over tho open water gates it lurns  several .largo turbine whoels.  Those wheels do not move the machinery of a flour mill but conslanlly  manufacture electricity for use on the  farm. By meani oD the huge storage  reservoir tho work' of making electricity can go on through tho dry est season, for tho water power never givos  out, and the eleotrio power is always  ready to do its work, li'rom this storage house the motive power "is conducted to all parts of the farm. The  torcing houses for winter plants are  connected with the power houses by,  overhead wires similar lo those which  disfigure tho city streets for trolley  linos. : The groat barn aud living  houses are lighted by electric lights  that get thoir source of energy rnl tho.  same place.

The electric machinery worked hy  the motors is full of interest. , Here  are huge plows that turn over six furrows1 of frosh soil at once, haysacks  and reapers ;��������� \ which' ��������� perform their  duties automatically, electric weed  killers and fertilizers, corn buskers  and she Heirs, hay choppers and,gigantic threshing and'fanning mills. Electric vehicles rush across the extensive  fields with loads of grain, hay or vegetables, moving their broad' tires without difficulty oyer/ the rough, uneven  surface, and behind the plows and harrows the automatic seeders follow in  close succession, dropping the corn,  wheat of other-seed at regular intervals in the freshly turned ':��������� furrows.  Everything is performed by machinery,  guided by disciplined hands and propelled by the now motive power that  has  oaused  ail  the  rovolution.  There are two general types of these  electric'..plows, which' will serve to Illustrate the general principle of operation in each class., The first type is  propelled hy a fixed motor.   '  THE FIELD SELECTED '"  for plowing is divided into sections of  exactly tho width of the cable used  for pulling the plows. A heavy,  powerful electric motor on wheels is  stationed at each' side of the field, and  a strong cable connects them. This  oable winds and unwinds upon a spool  as tho machinery is set in motion.  To this cable the plow, which is cap-  nblo of turning from; three .to sixi, furrows of soil at once, is firmly attached.  Whon the electric motor on the side of  the field is sot in motion it winds up  the cable and drags the plow toward it,'  and when it reaches that side of, tho  field it turns around, and the reverse  action of tho, other motor repeats the  operation. ' ���������'���������'���������'.  Tho second type of electric plow is  run by a movable motor attached to  the plow itself. The cable is fixed to  an anchor on tho opposite side of the  field, and the electric motor ' follows  this cable, dragging the heavy plow  with it. Even, the weeding is accomplished by electricity. The? force that  stimulates plant growth and gives motive power to all the machinery can  .also kill and destroy. Eljeptrooution is  applied to the woods jjust as successfully as to prisoners in pur jails. The  delicate current of electricity may  give life and vigor to plant life, but  a powerful current destroys every  germ of life, animal or vegetable. In  tho spring of tho year the new; weed  destroyer goes over the field, and annihilates  weeds,   insects    and larvae.

The skipper suffering severoly from  suppressed emotion, went. below, and  tho crew after waiting a little while to  make sure that he was not coming ,up  again, made their way quickly to the  mate.  "If wo can only take him to Battle-  sea in this rig. it'Tl be all right,'" said  the latter. "You chaps stand by inov.  His slippers and sou-wesler is tho only  clothes he's got aboard. Chuck every  needle you can lay your hands on overboard, or else he'll git trying to make  a suit out of a piece of old sail or  something. If we can only lake him  to Mr. Pierson like this, it won't be so  bad, after all."  While these arrangements wore in  hand above, ih<" skipper and tho boy  were busy with others below. Various  Btartling schemes propounded by tho  skipper for obtaining possession of his  man's attire were rejected by the youth  as unlawful,'and, what was worse, impracticable.'' For a couple of hours  they discussed ways and moans, but  only ended in diatribes against the  mean ways of the crew, and tho skipper, whose head ached still from his  excesses, fell into a state of sullon  despair at  length,  and sat silent.  "By Jove, Tommy, I've got it I" he  sried, suddenly starting up and hitting  the table with his fist. "Where's  your other suit ?"   ' < -  "That ain't no bigger than this one,"  said Tommy.  "You git it out," said the skipper,  wiilh a knowing toss of his head.  "Ah, there wo are I Now got to my  stateroom and take those off."  The wondering Tommy, who thought  that great, grief had turned his kinsman's brain, complied, and emerged  shortly afterward in a blanket, bringing his clothes under his arm.  "Now, do you kiuow what I'm going  to do?" inquired the skipper, with a  big smile.  "No."  "Fetch me the scissors, then. Now,  do you 'know what I'm going  to do?"  "Cut up the two "suits and make 'em  into one,'' hazarded the horror-stricken  Tommy. ��������� "Here, stop it I" Leave  off r  The skipper pushed him impatiently  off, and lying the clothes' on the table,  took up the scissors, and, with a few  slashing slrokes, cut the garments into  their compound parts.  "What am I to wear?" said Tommy,  beginning to blubbor. "you didn'r  think of that."  "What ara you to wear, you selfish  young pig," said the skipper, sternly.  "Always thinking' about yourself. Go  and git somo needles and thread, and  if there's any loft over and you're a  good boy, I'll see whether I can'make  something for you out of the leavings."  "There ain't no needles here,"  whined Tommy, after a lengthy search.  "Go down the foc'sle and git the  case of sail-makers' needles, then,"  said the skipper. "Don't let anyone see  what  you're after���������and some thread."  "Well, why couldn't you let me go  in my clothes before you cut 'em ?"  moaned Tommy. "I don't like going  up in this blanket. They'll laugh at  me." .  "You go at once 1" thundered the  skipper, and, turning his back on him,  whistled softly, and began to arrange  the  -yleces of cloth.  'Laugh away, my lads," he said,  cheerfully, as an uproarious burst of  laughter greeted the o/ppoarance of  Tommy on dock.     "Wait a bit."'  He waited himself for nearly twenty  minutes, at the end of which time  Tommy, treading on his blanket, came  flying down the companion-ladder and  rolled into  the cabin.  "There ain't a needle aboard the  ship," he said, solemnly, as ho picked  himself up and rubbed his head. "I've  looked everywhere."  'What ?" roared tho skipper, hastily  concealing the pieces of cloth. "Here,  Ted!  Ted!"  "Ay, ay, sir I" said Ted, as ho came  below.  "I want a sail-maker's needle," said  the skipper glibly. "I've got a rent  In this skirt."  "I broke tho last one yesterday,"  said Ted, with an evil grin.  "Any other needle, then ?" said tho  skipper, trying to conceal his emotion.  "1 don't believe there's such a thing  aboard the ship," said Ted, who had  obeyed tho mate's thoughtful injunction. "Nor thread. I was only saying  so  to  the   mate  yesterday."  The skipper sank again to the lowest depth, waved him away, and then  getting on a corner of a locker fell  into a gloomy reverie.  "It's a pity you do things in such a  hurry,' said Tommy, sniffing vindictively. "You might have made suro of  tho noodle before , you spoiled my  clothes.. There's two of us going about  ridiculous now." '    ,  The master of the Sarah .Jane allowed this insolence to pass unheeded.  It is in moments of deep distress that  tho mind of man, naturally reverting  to, solemn, things, seeks to: improve tho  occasion by a lecture. The skipper,  chastened by suffering and disappointment, stuck, his right hand in his  pocket, after a lengthened search fori  it, and gently, bidding theT blanketed j  urchin in front of him to sit down,  again: . i  "You  see  what  oomos  of drink nnd  cards," he said, mournfully.   "Instead  'of being at the helm of my ship, racing  ������11 the other crafts down tho river, I'm ;  skulking down hero  like���������like-���������"  "Like an actress,'" suggested Tommy. -.  ��������� Tho- skipper ' eyed him all over.  Tommy, unconscious of offense, mot  his gaze serenely.  "If," continued the skipper,, "at any  time you felt liko taking too much-, and  you stopped with the beer mug half  way to your lips, and thought of me  Bitting in this disgraceful state, what  would you do?'''  "���������I dunno,''. rcDliied Tommv, yawning.  THE HYDROPHOBIA SOARS,  "What would "you do?'' persisted tho  skipper, with great expression.  "Laugh, I s'pose," said Tommy,  after a moment's thought.  The sound of a well-boxed ear ran  through  the cabin. *���������  "You're an unnatural, ungrateful  little toad," said the skipper, fiercely.  "You don't deserve to have a good,  kind undo to look after you."  "Anybody oan have him for me,''  sobbed the indignant Tommy, as ho  tenderly felt his oar. "You.look' a  precious sight more like an aunt than  an undo.''  After firing this shot he vanished in  a cloud of blanket; and tho skipper,  hastily abandoning a hastily formed  resolve of first flaying him alivo and  then flinging him overboard, sat .down  again and lit his pipe.  Onco out of the rivor he came on  deck again, and, ignoring, by a great  effort, the smiles of the' crew and the  jibes of the mate, took command.  The only alteration he made in his  dress was to substitute his sou'wester  for tho bonnet, and in this guise he  did his work, while the aggrieved  Tommy hopped it in blankets. The  three days ac sea passed like a horrid  droain. So covetous was his gaze that  the crew instinctively clutched their  nelher garments and looked to the  buttoning of thoir coats as they passed  him. He saw coats in the mainsaiL  and fashioned phantom trousers out of  the flying'jib, and, toward the end,  began to babble of blue serges and  mixed tweeds. Oblivious of fame, he  has resolved to enter the harbor of  Battlesea by night; but it was not,to  be. Near home the wind dropped,  and the sun was well up before Battle-  sea came into view, a grey bank on the  starboard bowj  Until within a milo of the harbor  the skipper held on, and then his grasp  on the wheel relaxed somewhat, and he  looked round anxiously for the mate.  "Where's Bob ?" ho shouted.  "He's very ill, sir," said Ted, shaking his head.  "111?*' gasped the startled skipper.  "Hero,  tako the wheel a minute."'  He handed it ovor, and then, grasping    his   skirts,  went     hastily below.  (Tho mate was half lying, half sitting  in his bunk, groaning dismally.  -  "What's the matter?" inquired the  skipper.  "I'm dying," said the mate.     "I keep  being  tied up all in knots* inside.     I  can't  hold myself  straight."  The other, cleared his throat. ���������     ,  "You'd better take off your clothes  and lie down a bit," he said, kindly.  "Let me help you off with them.1'  "No���������don't ��������� tfoublel" panted the  mate.  "It ain't no trouble," said the skipper, in a trembling voice.   ;  "No, I'll keep 'em on,' said the  mate, faintly. "I've always had an  idea I'd like to die in my clothes. It  may be foolish, but I can't help it."  "You'll have your wish somo day,  never fear, you infernal rascall" shouted tho over-wrought skipper. "You're  shamming sickness to make me take  the ship into portl','  "Why shouldn't you take her in?"  asked the mate, with an air of innocent surprise. "It's your duty as  cap'n. You'd hotter get up above now.  The bar is always shifting."  Tho skipper, restraining himself   by  a    mighty effort, wont on dock again,  | and taking the wheel,    addressed   tho  | crew.     Ho spoke feelingly of the obe-  ! dienco men owed  their    superior ,off i-  Icers,  and the moral    obligation    they  I were under to lend them their trousers  I when  they required  them.     He dwelt  Ion the awful punishments awarded for  ' mutiny and proved clearly that to allow the master of a ship to enter port  in petticoats was mutiny of the worst  type.   He then sent  them    below    for  their clothing.     They woro gone such  a long, time that it was palpable to the  meanest intellect that they did not intend  to bring  them.     Meantime    the  harbor widened out before him.  There were two or Ihree people on  the quay as tho Sarah Jano came  within hailing distance. By the time  sho had passed the lantern at the end  of it there were two or three dozen and  tho numbers were steadily increasing  at the rato of three persons for every  fivo yards she made. Kind-hearted,  humane men, anxious that their friends  should not lose so groat and cheap a  treat, bribed small and reluctant boys  with pennies to go in search! of them,  nnd by the time the schooner reached  her berth a large proportion of the  population of Ihe port was looking  over each other's shoulders and shouting foolish and hilarious inquiries to  tho skipper. The news reached the  owner, and he came hurrying down to  the ship just as the,skipper, regardless  of the keatod remonstrances of tho  sightseers, was preparing to go below.  Mr. Pearson was a stout man, and ho  came, down exploding with wrath.  Then ho saw tho apparition, and mirth  overcame him. It became necessary  for three stout fellows to act as buttresses, and the more indignant, the  skipper looked the harder their work  became. Finally he was assisted, in  a weak state,' and laughing hysterically, to the deck of the schooner, where  he followed the skipper below, and, in a  voice broken with emotion, demanded  an explanation.  "It's the finest sight I ever saw in  "my life. Boss," he said, when the other  had finished. "I wouldn't have missed  it for anything. I've been feeling very  low this last week, and it's done mo  good. Don't talk nonsense about leaving the ship. I wouldn't loso you for  anything after this, but if you- like to  try a fresh mate and crow you can  pleaso yourself. If you'll only como up  to the house and let Mrs. Pearson see  you���������sho's been ailing���������I'll give you a  couple of pounds. Now, get your bonnet and come.''  The  End.  Money, you know, is an evil. Yes, but  I don't suppose people are to blame for  itwhen it's inherited.  SOME AUTHORITIES SAY THERE IS  ' NO SUCH DISEASE.  Superstition Work-* Ilium the Xoi**re������-In-  tcsllns .lied I mi I JiituHlKeu.ee Timt .Hay  Trove ol' Service to Tliouhiiiuls Durlna  Summer.  The phrase "dog days" is, upon tho  highest authority, alleged to bo one  that has caused more cruelty to be inflicted upon man's best friend, the dog,  than any other cause. There is no  such thing as "dog day," so far as they  refer to the season in which tho bite of  a dog is more pernicious than at any  other time.  Babies is a very rare disease among  dogs, and can occur just as readily in  January as. in August. And hydrops  hobia is ' even rarer. Many eminent  medical authorities affirm that there  is no such disease. No microbe of  hydrophobia has ever been isolated. It  is regarded by eminent scientists and  doctors as imaginary disease, as scarce  as "sark biles." In Asia and Constantinople, where parish dogs abound,  there is no such thing as hydrophobia.  It is never known.  In Germany it is seldom heard! of.  Not a case has been reported in Berlin in many years. In London, withl 5,-  500,000 inhabitants, only one case was  reported in 1892, and of the 8,000 stray  dogs which were oapliured not one  showed symptoms of rabies. The statistics of New York for 53 years show  nine cases in which no death occurred,  and two successive years in which there  was not one. During the 301 years of  the existence of tho American Society  for tho Prevention of Cruelty to  Animals there1 has been no single well-  established case either of rabies or of  hydrophobia. This experience, which  makes it a point to look into all reports of rabies and hydrophobia, is  confirmed by the experience of the  most eminent physicians.  DR. DULLES ON HYDROPHOBIA  Dr. Charles W. Dulles, of Philadelphia, examined 78 cases of supposed  hydrophobia, and pronounced tho great  nxajority'of them to be utterly incredible and wholly spurious; and it is a remarkable fact that no one "has yet  claimed the large money award offered  by various kennel clubs and by several  physicians to any one producing a  well-authenticated case of hydrophobia  in man or beast.",  It is hardly necessary to say more on  this subject, and yet it may be advis-i  able to do so, because the popular be-������  lief in hydrophobia'amounts so nearly  lo a superstition that it can probably  be suppressed by nothing but superabundant evidence. ,  .When  a man or woman is writhing  in agony, is leorrifirod by water, and  gives every symptom ol hydrophobia,  shall it be said that all this horrible  suffering doss not exist? Surely not.  And yet those very symptoms, even  they are most awful, may be,' and often are, tho product of a diseased and  superexoited imagination. When a  hungry man thinks of food hia' mouth  waters, because nature supplies saliva  not only to food, lint to tho very  thought of food. Nothing is more curious than this response of the physical system to the operations of the  mind. Dr. Matthew Woods, in an admirable pamphlet upon "Mimetic Diseases," speaks of the familiar fact that  "at the close of many discourses delivered from the chair of the practice  of medicine the professor is privately  consulted by students suffering from  the symptoms described; and this imi-i  tativo peculiarity is not limited lo such  ailments, as disease of the heart, eon-  sumpiion, Bisedow's disease, gall stono,  cancer ot the pancreas, or appendicitis,  bur some have been known lc become  hemiplegia, viz., incapable of motion  and sensation in the right or left half  of the body���������during a realistic lecture  en cerebral apoplexy; others seized  with violent "p.i,n in the knee'' during  an elucidation of the symptoms and  pathology of Pott's disease, whilo there  are reports of students acquiring all  the subjective symptoms of dislocation  or fracture, because of Lhe impression  made upon their minds by the lecturer  while d,s-ussing those suigical states."  Dr. Woods further says: "Can we not  hope for the time when hydrophobia  may be relegated to the limbo of abandoned  vagaries?" ,  A method of cure has recently come  into much favor .with the medical  faculty in general. It is called the  Buisson cure. It is very simple, nnd it  has this great merit, at least, that if it  does no good, it can do no harm.  A SAMPLE REMEDY.  It consists simply of a hot vapor  bath; repeated more or loss frequently,  M. Buisson recommending at least  seven baths as desirable, if not essential, to a complete cure. The theory  is thai the poisonous matter absorbed  into the system from tho bite of a  rabid dog is completely excreted by  these balhs. , Dr. Buisson himself was  bitten by a mad dog in 1820. He took  vapor baths, and was never attacked  with hydrophobia. In other ' cases of  persons who had had a similar misfortune. Dr. Buisson has followed the  same treatment with invariable success. ,  In England nnd elsewhere, particularly of late years, tho same treatment  has been applied and appears to have  been equally effective. To say tho  least, we should expect it to be so. It  is-'reasonable'to believe that the profuse perspiration caused by a vnpor  bath should    completely    excreto    tho  poisonous element lodged in the patient  by the teeth of the dog. , Repeated  baths, would, of course, be even more  effective in this way than a single bath.  The effect upon the patient's nervous  system might also be reasonably expected to be soothing and quieting.  FAITH HELPS CURE.  The hope and belief of the, effectiveness of the remedy would banish) thai  expectant attention which appears to  be the real cause of the hysterical affection known by the name of hydrop-  phobia. AL all events, it is free from  the dangers of the Pasteur treatment,  and it may help to hasten tho lima  when 'the superstition of hydrophobia  shall cease lo affect civilized mankind,  who alone aro subject to it, while savages, the round world over, aro v exempt. I  THE WHITE PASS RAILROAD.  It Now Taken Only Nine D.iys to Uracil "lit:  Kloiidllic  I'cdiii   Y.-iiicnnvri'.  The White Pass and Yukon Railroad  was fully opened to business from  Lynn Canal across the mountains to  Lake Bennett In tho last week of July.  The rapidity with which tho Klondike  has been brought into touch with the  rest of the world is illustrated by the  fact that on July 20 many of the European nswspapers printed a despatch  sent from Dawson on the previous day  telling of the good feeling there over  the vast improvement in communications that the railroad would introduce, and adding that the journey from  Vancouver to that town would now require only nine days. The road was  practically completed - to the lake on  July 11, but was not fully opened till a  fortnight later. The company is a Utile more sanguine even than the people of Dawson as to the shortening of  the timo to that town, for it declares  that Dawson may now be reached in  eight days from Seattle, Tacoma, Victoria or Vancouver.  ,     .    ,    ,     i  At any rate, the completion of this  railroad to the navigable waters leading to Lhe Yukon practically revolutionizes the means of comrnunicali-.n  with the Yukon gold fields. Up to  this time the overland journey has  certainly been one of hardship and  danger, and has cost a great deal of  money., To-day the terribly trying  and arduous part of the trip may be  made in a few hours and at a cost  which is still almost a bagatelle when  measured by the large expense of packing freight over mountain passes that  are among the most toilsome and formidable in tho world.  The Canadians deserve the credit of  pushing lo a successful conclusion a  great piece of railroad engineering.  The company asserts that it was .  THE MOST DIFFICULT  stretch of railroad building ever undertaken, and the history of lhe work  shows thai the technical and physical  obstacles in the way were very formidable. Ono of the greatest impediments in the way was tho fact that  much of the blasting was done in  places where it was impossible to employ any tiling but human labor to carry  the material and supplies for the men  who wero using explosive to tear hundreds of thousands of tons of solid rock  from the mountain sides to make the  roadbed, and human labor also had to  be employed to clear much of the  grade as the blasting operations proceeded.  As the construction was begun early  in June last year, the first section of  the road to Lake Bennett has been  completed in about thirteen months.  This time would have been consider-,  ably reduced if it had not been that  about two months after tho work  began the news of the discoveries'at  the Allin gold fields caused a stampedo  of workmen. One morning 1,700 men  were working on tho road, and next  day the labor brigade numbered only  5G0, all lhe others having departed for  the now Eldorado. This was on Aug.  8 last year, and from that Lime there  was the greatest trouble to keep on  hand a suificient force of laborers. The  difficulti2.s were much augmented also  by lhe unusually heavy snowfall last  winter, and during February and  March last nine men were employed in  shovelling snow for every one actually  engnged in railroad construction. Railroad builders were probably never so  bundled up before to keep them from  freezing to death, for the work was  pushed on steadily in spite<of the elements, and the larger part of the line  was built with the thormornotor from  20 degrees to 30 degrees  below zero.  It is said that the company intends  to push the road on to Dawson as soon  as there is any prospect that the development, of the country will warrant  this additional enterprise. In other  words having joinsd tho sea with  navigable waters by a steam road, they  will rest on thoir oars for a while instead of following the American  method of extending railroads into  new regions ahead of development with  the  idea  of  stimulating and  assuring  it.: _ .

GREAT JAW POWER   OF  ANIMALS  Carnivora  F/xerel-fO Tremendous Force  Iu  Their CoufllelJi.  Not everyone has been bitten by a  dog, a cat or other animal w^ose weapons of offense and defense are their  Leelh, and consequently has not lived  in dread of hydrophobia or lockjaw or  blood-poisoning. Still fewer have any  comprehension of the great power required to inflict the wounds that all  have heard of, even though they have  not experienced them. The teeth,  even of the largest carnivora are merely the "spear-heads;" but tho force  which "works" these instruments ia  prodigious. It seems as if for the  moment the animal threw all its bodily,  energy into the combination of' muscular action which we call a "bite." In  most cases the mere shock of impact,  as the animal hurls itself on its oneiny,  is entirely demoralizing or inflicts  physical injury. . A muzzled mastiff  will hurl a man to the greund,'-in the  efforL to fasten his teeth in his throat  or shoulder. Then, the driving ana  crushing force of tho jaw muscles is  astonishing. The snapping power ol  an alligator's jaws is more or less in*  telligible. They are long and furnish- ,  ed with a row ol pointed teeth from  end to end. But the jaws of a lion;  leopard, tiger, otter, ferret or baboon  aro short and the long and-pointed  teeth aro few.' Yet each or their  species has a biting power which ia  proportion to its size is almost incredible.'  Sir Samuel Bakor, who had a long  and varied acquaintance with the bitea  of the carnivora, noticed that tha  tigor usually seized an Indian native  by tho shoulder and with one jaw, on ,  one side and tho othor on the other bit  clean through .the chest and back,  "The fatal wound was tho bite, which,  through back and chest, penetrated  the lungs." Europeans aro killed by  tho tiger's bite as well as lacerated by,  the claws. A Mr. Lawes, son of a  missionary of that name, was killed  after being shaken for a few momenta  by a tigress, which then left him. Ha  died next day. In nearly all cases the  bite penetrates to the lungs. This  kind of a wound is characteristic of the  attacks of many of the felidao. Scarcely any bird recovers from a cat's bite  for the same reason. Tho canine teeth  aro almost instantly driven through  tho lung, under the wing. Tha  cheetah, which has a very Bmall mouth,  always bites through the blaok bucks,  throat. The leopard, when seizing  smaller animals, such as dogs, crushes  the head; when attacking men it aima  at biting through the lungs.  MAN-EATING LIONS.  Further Fucts About Their Kni-ages Amona  Railroad Itullders Iu I'nst Ati-Ion.  Some further facts have been received about tha man-eating lions which'  made such a panic among 4,000  Indian coolies working on the Uganda  Railroad a few months ago. It appears that the first timo the laborers  knew anything about lions that make  a business of killing men to eat was  one day when one of the , brutes, in  broad daylight, as the laborers wero  strung along tho line with shovels in  hand, suddenly sprang in among them,  crushed one poor fellow's skull with a  terrible blow of his paw and maimed  another bo badly that ho. could not get  away. Of . course, all the horrified  workmen took to their heels and raised  the alarm at the camp a mile away.  Tho district engineer and his assistant  at once went to the spot, but the lion  had disappeared, leaving all of the two  bodios he. could not eat at. one meal,   i ���������  After that an armed guard was kept  along the line of work,' but it mado little difference to tho animals that were  determined to have men to eat. They*  would spring liko a flash out of the,  jungle, seize a man and bear him off  beyond pursuit. Two days after the  first man was killed another man was  taken, and the next day another dis-���������  appeared, and within a fortnight'  eleven men had been seized, all from  ono camp. The third week brought  tlie list of viclims up to fifteen. The  sixleenih victim was one of the coolie  overseers, a huge man, standing over  six feet and weighing more I ban 2C0  pounds. He was the first man to  reach the work lino in tho morning,  and just as be. was giving some in-*  slructoins a ,lion sprang upon him and  deall him a terrible blow on the head,-  crushing the skull. Th-an he coolly began to eat his prey, whilo the shivering  Indians stood about 300 feet away, feeling that they were safe now that the  lion had got his man. Somehow it  didn't occur to them to shoot till the  brute had half finished his meal, and  then they blazed away in a terrifio  volley and,ended the animal's career  then nnd there.  .  It was not till twenty-eight coolies  had been killed that the large force ot  workman went op strike. They declined to do another bit of work till  all the man-eaters had been cleared  out of the surrounding country. Work  was suspended till a party of hunters  had laid low the last of1 these formidable foes of man, and since then no  further casualties of the sort have been  reported.  STRICTLY UNAMIABLE.
