McLebd and Ross,"the celebrated Slocan  Star   Jdrillers,   have   beaten    the  world's record in Spokane, in driving a  51 inch hole through solid granite in 15  nifnutes. , Some years   ago they were  ���������beaten by Qppenents who ..drove 47 inches, because  their  drii\ broke in the  hole.   This year they hadsi5^ the contest  two  other   pairsc of  compeiftors   who  drove 46 3-4 and,48 inches very" nearly  respectively';. Towards the close of the  time betting was 100 to 1 in their favor.  The quaility of1 their work was   favorably commented on on all hands,  Shortly after"'they made this record  Bradshaw and Freethy, of Butte, Mont.,  entered the lists and drove the drill 55  inches.or  4 inches better.   In a few  minutes the friends of the Sandon'team  had $1,000 up on a wager that their men  could defeat the Butte drillers, and on  Wednesday night the contest'came off.  Thedrills of both teams Ptuck in the obstinate  granite, andv both   teams lost  considerable time and distance thereby.  Whan time -was called" for both, it was  found.the Butte parties had driven the  steel  52  inches  and the Sandon men  5.11-4. giving the $1,000 to. the  Butte  men. Unless it is known just how much  time and distance-both  teams  lost by  the  sticking  of  the drills, it is impossible to say which is the ^better   team.  The possibilites are. however, this contest does hot end the matter, and  that  i'there will be more bets and more trials  before the championship is settled.  Davy  and   Stevens,   of   Marysville,  drilled 53 7-8 inches in the contest, but  o/  course,   this  was  distanced by the-  Butte men's first record, vlt would seem  the Butte men are giants with the ham  The Washington Mine.  It is- reported that the Washington  mine in McGuigan basin is showing up  better all the time as development work  goeson.   Last week one of the   richest  strikes in the history of the property  was   discovred ' in one   of  the  workings, a mall stringer running in the face  of the tunnel.   There are some  60 tons  of good ore sacked, and in a   few days  shipping  will  commence  again.   Tlie'  ore from new showings is being taken  out as well as the other ore.   A great  deal of exploration  work is being done  so as to have the property worked on a  largei   and   better   basis    during  the  winter.    This  mine .has   one   of  the'  largest payrolls in the basin.   The mine  atl through is in better condition  than  ever   before.   John   L.. Retallack   has  full charge of the work.   It is the intention to ship steady all winter.  The Washington was staked by Wm.  Lynch in 1892.   There are three claims  in the group���������Washington, 'Washington  Fraction and I 0.   John L. Retallack,  Ed   Mann    and    Major   Montgomery  purchased   the  prospects and  opened  them up, and afterwards they sold their  interests   to   a   Spokane  company for  J $50,000. . During the next two  years a  concentrator and tramway were put up  out of'the   profits,   besides   declaring  dividends   to   the  amount of  $30,000.

In the face of this drift so far  there is a six-inch stringer showing of  galena which assavs 400 ounces in silver  and 70 per cent in lead, and in another  drift there are four inches of ore.

J    Tbe Fletcher   group  at Whitewater  ' was bonded on Monday to  Geo, Alexander, of Kaslo, for $35,000, 10 per cent  of the purchase price was paid to the  owners, Messrs.  Fletcher Brothers and  Moulse.     Mr.   Alexander   intends   to  commence work  on  the property immediately..   A surveying party left on  Wednesday  morning for the property  and will be followed in a few days by a '  force of miners.   The Fletcher group is  a gold proposition,   from   which   some  very high-grade ore has been   taken.  It was under bond a year ago to Chas.  Plowman,  who dropped the bond without doing any work.

Kings and Queens arc evidently as  great believers in talismans as .are  the humblest of their subjects, indeed, perhaps more ao. for in Europe, at' any rate. nearly every  crowned head, without exception,  possesses .some precious ornament or  another to which lie or she attributes a more ,or loss supernatural  power.  Nicholas T. ot Russia is a case in  point, lip to the day of his death  he wore a ring which, according Lo  : the legend nttached to it by tradition, assured happiness and definite  prosperity to iU owner for the time  being. .11 came to tlie Tsar as a  betrothal jucsent from Princess  Charlotte of Prussia. the daughter  of Frederick "William.  111.  jMadanie Wildcrnuilh, the latLer's  Swiss governess, was its first known  possessor : till one day, when rummaging with the princess, among hex  collection of curios, the ring was  especially noticed and admired.  "This must be a very antique  piece," observed the princess, putting it. on her finger, "ii. has-such a  peculiar shape, that it reminds one  of sonic ancient talisman." Endeavouring, hy-i'iul-bye. to draw off tho  ring, with a view Lo its return, she  found herself unable to remove it.  Madame "iViidei nuiLh then offered it  as a keepsake to her royal pupil,  who accepted  it.  ��������� Later on, the princess succeeded in  getting- il oil. It was- a curious little ring, very simple, and made in  Gothic fashion. Closer examination  "revealed, engraved within it, words  which, though very much worn, when  carefully deciphered, read : "Russia's  Tsarina." ' Madame- Wildenmith and  her charge were highly amused with  this discovery, laughingly attributing- a not unnatural .significance to  the   inscription,  In the  course of years a marriage  ������������������W'-.s   arranged   between   Lhe   Princess  '���������"Charlotte   and   the   Archduke   Nicholas, who. at that Lime was not in the  /near succession ;     hia brother Alexander   (.,   the reigning Tsar,   having  as his  heir-apparent      the  Archduke  .Constantino,  HIS   SECOND   BROTHER.  It was at a'.court dinner in Berlin, where Nicholas had come in  order to meet his,.prospective bride,  that the ring for the second time  changed hands. Briefly, the Archduke foil really and desperately in  love with  Lhe princess, told her    so,  'WCSf  '���������������s  i/  V V *  WHAT THE QUEEN'S CORONATION" ROBE MAY BE LIKE.  Queen Alexandria's coronation robes will, it is expected, soon be in  course*.pf preparation. ���������  So many years have passed since a Queen Consort was crowned - that  records and precedents have had to bo consulted in regard to the "type of  robe a Queen Consort must wear.  Quite-recently the robes of Queen Adelaide, Consort of William IV.,  were brought up from Scotland for the- Queen's personal inspection.  These robes, which-,are-of black .velvet, trimmed with gold, with largo  ���������sleeves, became a perquisite of the Duchess of Gordon, who was Mistress  of the Robes in 1831.  They-were kept for some years'at Gordon Castle, and afterwards at  Iluntly Lodge, and when the Duchess died, she left them as ail heirloom  to /her relative, Brodie of Brodie. The robes have since been preserved  at Brodie.Castle. ���������  '-   - ���������'��������� .'''..-.,.'.  of sight,  never onco wearing it dur-  ing'  ALL   ITER MOURNING   YEARS.  as thev sat side by side at tabic, and     he fat oi  war ���������X        "on*  craved  some little  token as a     sign I ^ to.    don it aga n^.en.  ne  that   his   love  was  returned.

The manoeuvre was successfully accomplished, Nicholas securing the  ring���������the same lhe princess had received from her governess years before.  Most people know of the happy i  wedded life of these two, but fever,  perhaps, the prophetic 'connection  between tlie crowning, after eight  years, of >, Charlotte- as Russin/s  Tsarina. and the words engraved  ���������within the ring. Nicholas, it is  said, nevur, until in late years it  beenine too small for him, ren  the  ring  from  his  finger.  Ultimately, he had it attached to  a gold chain, and wore it continually  round his neck.  The Empress Eugenie at one time  possessed a certain breast-pin, shaped like a clover leaf, Und formed of  closely-set diamonds' and sniuragds,  -which she regarded-in the light of a  lucky jewel, or talisman. No thing  would      persuade     her   huL   thai  the  The Prince Imperial., however, went  to Zululaud, and his departure    for   for  news  came of her son's untimely death she  took it off once more���������and for ever.  Eventuallv she gave it to the Princess Moncly, the daughter of Murat,  ex-titular King of Naples.  * The Rajah of Mattau, in Borneo,  is the happy possessor of the largest  known diamond in the world. As a  ornament- the jewel is 120  years old.. It is pear-shaped, and  'has  a  small   hole  drilled   through  it.  Were this all, however, about it,  there would be nothing peculiar to  chronicle. It is the romance attached Lo it ; the legendary .properties  attributed to it, which give it a foremost claim'to be included in-the  somewhat limited list of royal precious  talismans.  iMany battles have at. various times  been fought for its possession ; but  iu spite of every known dodge on  the political board, it still remains  loved i'11 the. Rajah of Mattau's family, a  i prized heirloom, and "venerated mystery stone.  The Dutch Governor of Batavia for  Lhe Lime being, once offered .-the sum  of $:l i50,000 for it, with, in addition, two men-of-war, fully equipped  with guns and ammunition.  Jt is said thai the Rajah's refusal  to part with the- diamond on any  terms was couched in language more  forcible than polite It being in  Malay, the Governor,'fortunately for  everybody, did not get the full benc-  ���������IT MIXED  HIM  UP.  "As to the coming yacht race and  Lipton," said Mr. . ezzit to his  wife, "I think it .will be found that  there is many a slip between the lip  and the cupton."

SYMPTOMS THAT MAY LEAD  TO SERIOUS RESULTS.  The Experience of Thomas , Cada,  of Essex .Co.���������Nerves ��������� Seemed  Shattered, and He Felt Unfitted to Stan'd Hard Work.  From  the Review,  Windsor,  Ont.  Mr. Thomas Cada, of Pike Creek,  a small village in Essex Coim-ty, is  known Lo almost everyone in that  section.- lie is a son of Mr. .John  Catia, mill' owner, and a prominent  politician 'in his locality. A representative of the Windsor Review,  who had . known that some time  previously IMr. Cada was in  poor health, recently met him looking anything but an invalid, and naturally asked what had restored him  to health. "L\-. Williams' Pink  Pills," promptly replied Mr. Cada.  When aske'd if he would give the particulars for. publication, Mr. Cada  said "certainly, if yo\i think it worth  while: but there is nothing very wonderful about my ca.se.' I was simply  badly run clown; my nerves seemed to  be'all shattered, and! J was unable to  stand hard work. In fact work of  any kind left me badly' used up.  There did not seem ;o be any organic trouble; it was just a case of  being run down and worn out. T  fell myself /Gradually getting worse,  however, and I began taking medicine. I. tried several advertised remedies, but they did not help me, indeed some of ihem did me more harm  than good. dust then I read of a  case much like mine cured by the use  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I  purchased a few boxes. ' Vory soon I  noticed a decided improvement in my  condition and in the course of a few  weeks 1 was feeling r/iy old-time self.  I can now eat heartily, do a,.good  day's work with no unusual fatigue,  and. in fact feel thoroughly renewed  in health and strength. Naturally 1  think Dr. ���������'.

Mclaughlin  LIVES    TO    REJOICE THAT  HE TOOK  HIS  BROTHER'S  ADVICE.  Por Twenty-five Years Crippled  with Backache���������Pinally Advised to Take Dodd's Kidney Pills  ���������What  Cure.  He    Says About    His  Economy Point, N.S.; Sept. 9. ���������  Mr. G. S. McLaughlin lives in this  quiet little Nova Scotia village. His  brother keeps the grocery store here.  But for this .seemingly unimportant  fact, unless death had mercifully re-  sieved him of his sufferings, Mr. McLaughlin would in all probability  have been a helpless cripple to-day.  For it was through his brother keeping store that he came to try  Dodd's Kidney Pills.  Economy Point is thirty-seven  miles from Truro. The only connection is by waggon road, and in the  spring when the roads are impassable, the hamlet is isolated completely. But nevertheless the fame  of Dodd's Kidney Pills found its way  to Economy Point, and Mr. McLaughlin's brother in response to  frequent requests, began to retail  them at his store. There is no druggist in the place, and Mr. McLaughlin's grocery is looked to for medicines as well as groceries. Hearing  the terms of unqualified praise  with which his customers spoke of  Dodd's Kidney Pills, the brother recommended them to'Mr. McLaughlin. "They might help your back,,"  said he.  That is the story.'.of-Mr.. McLaughlin's cure���������or all of it that varies to  any extent from that of thousands  of others. lie followed his brother's  advice. "T will try them, anyway,"  he said. That's all Dodd's Kidney  Pills want���������a'; trial. After the first  trial there is' no more hesitation.  Mr. McLaughlin says it was wonderful the way his pain left him. and  his back, strengthened." He was a  free man ever since. .  "I "was troubled with lame back  for twenty-five years or more. I.  couldn't turn myself in bed. Wonderful to say T have had no return  of the trouble since using the Dodd's  Kidney Pills.

King Edward continues to cause  himself to bo discussed in all circles  in London by his persistency in rearranging conditions existing in the  Royal household. The utmost endeavors are put forth to maintain  secrecy upon the changes ordered by  the King, but inklings of what i.s  transpiring almost daily in the palaces creep out and form the subject  of newspaper  articles.  For several weeks the King has personally superintended much of the  work of destroying huge, (juantities ofthe .private-correspondence of Queen  Victoria. This consists, in the main,  of letters received from relatives and  near friends of the late Queen, intermingled with, copies of her replies  and  thousands of .state documents.  It was found that the Queen had  perfected an elaborate index system  of these documents and letters, by  which she was able to refer to any of  them, upon a minute's notice.  CARE IS EXERCISED. '  In obliterating the Queen's correspondence King Edward exercised the  utmost care to prevent any part of  it from falling into the hands of persons who might publish it. Officials  especially charged with this duty  and who were made personally responsible to the King, took charge of  the work, and submitted their ro-  ' ports to tho King.

SATUBDAY,   SEPTEMBER 28, 1901.  LABOR.  It ia acknowledged on all hands that  ��������� the labor problem will yet shake civilization to its very centre, if it is not  doing that to-day, and bring about a  ��������� new order of things in business economy.  To say it is under paid the world over,  is simply acknowledging facts universally admitted; but at the same time  labor itself does not always, in fact it  but aeldom takes the course to best  advance its own interests. The laborer  thinks the value of his wages should be  based on what it costs him to live, when  that is but one side of the story. He  must consider alom- side of it what he  is earning for his employer, The  employer must make interest on investment out of employed labor or there  is something wrong in the industrial  methods somewhere. This the employer must correct; but in many instances  he is powerless except through his  payment of wages.  Let us illustrate. Railway companies  can confer with one another, and  arrange such tariff and passenger rates  as will permit them to pay fair wages to  employees. Contractors and manufacturers of every class can combine and  charge such prices for their products as  will enable them to pay fair wages to  their hired help. It may lessen the  demand some what, and reduce the  amount of labor required, but it need  not reduce wages' scales.  Farmers on the other hand have to  tako such prices for their products of  every class as the markets offer, and  these latter are governed by supply and  demand which nature for the most part  regulates. The}' are then compelled  either to hire no help at all or pay such  wages as the volume "of their crops  in the markets allow. The3r practically have but little to say in the  inarketB themselves.  Mine owners are to a large extent in  the same class with farmers���������they can  only hire and pay as markets may ofl'er.  There have been times in the Slocan,  for instance, within the last four years  in which the owners could morereadily  paid .$4.00 to men than they can $3.00  to-day.- Supply may be controlled by  producers by the curtailment of labor;  but demand is regulated by causes  wholly beyond local control. It is quite  possible that in some callings the  available labor is wholly beyond requirements in the natural order of  things, and must it become a drug in  the market. Here is a held in which  unions properly regulated and manned  could accomplish a world of service. By  having communication with one another  a properly directed effort, much of the  overstocking in one channel could be  directed to where its services might be  better employed and would be required.  This may be considered a far reaching  idea; but it is a reasonable ono in the  life of a world.  In some cases, an industry is clogged  and rendered inoperative by local and  legislative machinery and intricacies  that might be made a world of * service  under new conditions, aB in the case of  mining in this province to-day. If  under such circumstances, labor would  only co-operate with capital instead of  fighting it in getting these restrictions  removed, a change for the better in the  interest of labor would follow at once.,  Oh, but, says one miner, if we got the  government to remove all tbe irnpedi-  EASY   CURE  What will you say to a  cream that makes you digest  your food so well that you  lose your weakness and pain ?

In practice, however, such arguments are absurd. If all  the government restrictions were removed hundreds of new properties now  unworked would begin operations by  the employers in two's, three's and  ten's. This would start saw mills,  stores, saloons and a hundred and one  other businesses so demanding labor  that self-interest would compel the old  producing properties to pay good wages  or lie idle, which latter for financial  reasons they certainly would not do.  Summed up, what labor should do is  direct its energies to secure such a  distribution of itself as to leaye no  calling overstocked. It should next cooperate with capital, to create employment and demand for production,  from  Of life a woman may find herself fading  and failing. She doesn't understand it.  She goes to doctors, who treat her for  this or for that, but she gets no better.  She grows frail and pale. She can just  "drag about the house," but has no  pleasure in life.  Many such women  have taken advantage of Dr. Pierce's  offer oi free consultation by letter, and  have been restored  by Dr. Pierce's  treatment to perfect health. There  is no more wonderful medicine for  women than Dr.  Pierce's Favorite  Prescription. Its  action upon the  womanly organs is  at once apparent  in the decrease of  pain and the increase of strength.  It cures female  weakness and such  diseases as take  away the strength  and beauty of  women.  Sick women are  invited to consult  Dr. Pierce by letter  free.    All  corres-  gondence private.

"Ilcfore I commenced to use your medicine I  was in a bad condition (for eight years) aud  four doctors treated me," writes Mrs. Uettie  Askew, of Garysburg, Northampton Co., N. C  '���������Tliey, of course, g-aveme at the time some relief, but it did not last long. I was some days  in my bed and some days I diagged about the  house. I have used five bottles of Dr. Pierce's  Favorite Prescription and five of the ' Golden  Medical Discovery,' aud four vials of the ' Pellets.' Now I feel like a new woman, and 1 want  the world to know it."  The action of the " Favorite Prescription " is assisted by the use of ���������' Pleasant  Pellets" when the bowels are irregular.  v.hich a bettiii'inent of its own status  without recourse to strikes and crim-  niinatious would as certainly follow as  tbe sun rises and sets every day.  TRY FEDERAL LINES,  We never favored the introduction of  Federal party lines into provincial  politics, as theie is practically nothing  in common. The first government of  Ontario, after Confederation, was a nonparty administration or coalition, and  history proves that it was the best  government the province ever had.  When men are agreed on principles of  government, and are men of principle  and stamina themselves, the non-party  government is certainly the best for  provinces. When, however, these elements are either lacking or possessed in  too light a degree to properly hold men  together, they are ineffectual; and to  secure a stable government influences  better'de lined appear to be necessary.  From the introduction of responsible  government, this'province has had but  a no-party government, and it has ever  been the least stable of any administration on the continent. The history  has ever been strong to-day and upset  to-morrow, without substantial reasons.  The spectacle now on the boards at  Victoria is only a repetition of the  convulsions of the past.  A few months ago Joseph Martin  appeared to the electors as premier, and  because of his record in Manitoba and  elsewhere, he got the most effectual  turning down ever a piemier got in  Canada. This ought to be sufficient  warning to all politicians of the province  to have nothing to do .with Martin.  Mr. Dunsmuir succeeded, with a sufficient following for all emergencies. He.,  ran but a few months when a defection  followed, because of.his railway policy,  that came within an ace of causing his  defeat. The other day again contrary  to the wish of supporters, he took into  his cabinet a henchman of Joseph, who  now lies in Lhe dust with Joseph. J. 0.  Brown Was elected an out-and-out  opponent of Dunsmuir's policy, and  opposed the premier on all but one or  two divisions. To take such a man into  his cabinet, and at the suggestion of  Joseph himself, is proof something must  be done to make a change in B. C.  politics. When no better than this  comes from the strongest aud most  favored of no-party governments, it is.  pruof there is something stronger required to preserve dividing lines.  When lions and lambs of to-day become either all lions or all lambs tomorrow, without the. filighest grounds,  as the public see for a change in  lerocity, it was time something else waa  tried, even Federal lines, to see of  stability of some character can be  secured,  This is,the best value in a  Lady's    Diamond     Ring  I   ever offered for $50.00.   ���������  The stones in these rings are  personallyselectedbyusfrom ���������  the cutters in Amsterdam,  and are absolutely perfect.

We have shown by the  governments' returns that these increased burdens on mining operations  have notonly not increased the revenues  of the country but actually diminished  them and crippled operations into the  bargain.

On Monday evening a meeting ofthe  city council was held and Mayor Lovatt  and Aldermen McDonald, Cunning,  Cameron, Folliott, Jalland and Duffy  were present. Very little business came  up for consideration, except the loan  ���������to borrow money from the Bank of  Montreal at New Denver���������which was  also discussed at last week's two meetings, of which the minutes were read.  A letter was received from J. & J.  Taylor, of Toronto, in reference to the  payment of a safe purchased for the  city some time ago. The clerk was  intructed to pay tlie draft when it was  due.  Invitations were sent to the mayor  and council, requesting tliem to attend  the New Westminster exhibition and  the Duke and Duchess York reception  at New Westminster.  Mr. M. L. Grimmett, after and interview with the manager of the Bank of  Montreal in reference to to the $1000  loan, stated that the loan eoukl begot  ns soon as the realty taxes were givsn  as a security. The finance committee  will attend to this matter at once.  Dr. Gomm gave the council, to understand that his claim againstthem would  como up in the courts if not settled  soon. A. motion was carried to pay off  the doctor's hill, and 25 per cent of the  amount to be paid at once and the  balance-as soon as possible. Dr. Gomm  accepted this settlement.  Alderman Cameron's amendment of  the traders' bylaw was passed and now  the peddler' and hawkers' licenses are  now reduced to $100, for every six  months.  Some of the citizens who are in favor  in fixing up the Sandon cemetery had  the matter brought up for consideration.  All the councilmen were in favor of this,  but it thought wise not to do anything  except in a personal way until the funds  were greatlv increased. The city team  would'he offered at any time to help on  the work. .'������������������'-'������������������  ^' ''  ������������������4   ���������  TINSMITH   AND   PLUMBER.

The time, for fresh apples is ., always hailed with pleasure by housewives, foi- with 'tliom no. end of delicious dishr;; nmy be prepared.  Apple sauce, , appreciated by nearly  everyone, is too oiten jjoorly made.  Not long ago. in a house wl-ere bet-  lei* judgment might have been expected, the dish came to the table  thickened; with  cornstarch.  Many people think that sauce made  of suniinei* apples and tender skinned  winter ones is improved in Uavor if  tlie, apples -in: not peeled "before  cooking-. In this case the pulp is  pushed through a. colander while it  is hot. By thi*.1. method, however,  the sauce becomes more or les.s  "salvy." iu the long run the. usual  method of cooking is most salisfac-  ���������tory to the majority of persons.  Pare, quarter and core the fruit :  put it into a saucepan with just  enough boiliiuy water to cover, and  simmer     it gently  until it is     done.  to  be  better      flavored  than     when  cookec in an open dish.  A sort of     baked apple sauce     is  made by     paring  and  coring     tart  apples, putting them in a deep pudding dish  with just enough water to  cover them,  covering the, dish closely and     baking or     steaming in     a  moderate oven until they are tender.  Then     the 'apples arc removed without breaking and  a half a cupful   of  sugar is added to the juice for every  six ������������������apples,'    and the syrup is boiled  for about  half     an  hour-.   Ten minutes before     removing from the fire,  a piece; of,ginger or mace or a    few  cloves are -put, in.   At tha end ofthe  time,      remove  the spice and     turn  the  liquid   over  tlie fruit,  which has  been   kept  hot.    Cover   closely     and  stand     away to cool.    This dish    is  delicious served .with cream.  A compote ol apples makes an attractive dessert. Make a syrup with  a cup of sugar, a cup of water,   and  &ZIZI3Sr TIB-ilL.  Resembles Japan in flavor, Mt is never impure���������while  infinitely superior, in Quality. It is making: rapid strides  in public favor because of the above facts. Drinkers oi  Japan teas should give it a trial.  ���������tic!  i-  to  taste while hot,   stirring  sugar  apple  is distributed,  sections are wanted  a syrup of one eup-  threc-fourths, of a cup-  sect, ion of lemon  boils,   add   pared  of jrevcn or eight  them1 slowly  uii-  but  not  broken,  apples care-fully  Sweeten  until   Unit tin-  unbroken,  ma  ful  of sugai  fill of water, and ���������.  peel.   When      this  and cored quarters  sour  apples.    Cook  til  they are tender  Then     remove the  with a wooden spoon,  boil the syrup  for five minutes or so, and strain it  over     the      apples.    A  tin or     iron  dish is never, of course, employed to  cook any     fruit.    A teaspoonful     of  butter     added to   Ripple sauce often  softens the flavor, and the juice of a  lemon and additional sugar add     to  its      richness.    A   sliced    lemon   (not  peeled) may bo put     into tha syrup  in   which      apples- are  cooked.   This  gives  a most decided   flavor.    A    bit  of orange peel  boiled  iii the     syrup  also   gives   a  pleasant-' taste.      True  apple lovers, however, object to anything   that   detracts  from  the    -pure  apple savor.  The old fashioned way of cooking  the apples slowly until they turned a.  rich mahogany red makes a pleasant  variety in the bill of fare. To accomplish this, pare, quarter and core  the apples' and cover them with cold  water, to which a tablespoonful of  ���������molasses or of dark brown sugar and  a piece of lemon peel have been added. Cover them and cook very slowly. , hardly at a simmer for several  hours. The sections should remain  whole. Pears cooked in this way  are especially delicious.  . Pits of butter sprinkled over the  top of the apple pie af u'j* the sugar  and cinnamon'have been put in and  before the top crust is on is a great  improvement, as is also the juice of  a lemon and a.n additional quantity,  of sugar.  For the baked apple of time honored memory there is a variety of  methods. The simplest of all is  liked the' best by many who claim  that from the core and seeds a certain flavor i.s given to the pulp.  Perfect . apples are selected, sweet  or tart, with no suggestion of worm  depredations. After washing them  they are placed iu a pan, with just  enough water u> cover the bottom,  and are baked slowly until tender.  To serve for desert it i.s best to  core them, tho cavities being filled  with sugar, with or without an additional  flavoring     A   tiny   piece    of  into  cinnamon.    Boil     it  ni i mites.     Mean-  ten tart apples,  syrup until they  liou.se-  cinna-  sii-e of  lemon     pee!  is ���������sometime** pui  each   with   tlie  sugar.    Some  keepers      use  u   sprinkling of  moil or a piece of butter the  a cherry.  One housekeeper always uses pound  sweets for  baking.   She removes   the  core, and packs them in a. large pudding dish with a cupful of hot water  in  the  bottom.   The dish  is  covered  closely and  set  in  a moderate oven,  where the  fruit  is  allowed  to  steam  slowly  until   it  is   tender.   Then  the  apple.-? are placed in an earthen dish  and tho juice      is  poured  over  them  with, a big woocier   spoon until  they  are ceo!, when     they are transferred  to a glass dish,  again  covered    with  the     juice and  placed      on  the  ice.  Baked  in   this  way,  apples are said J  an inch o  slowly for twelve  while, paro or core  and cook them in a  are  nearly  tender.    Drain  them   and  put  in   the  oven,   for  a  few  minutes.  Arrange the apples when cool  on   a  dish and fill  the spaces left- by     the  cores  with  currant jelly.    Cool     the  syrup'' and   pour   it  over   the   apples.  When     very cold,      arrange whipped  cream   around'the  base  and  garnish  it with the currant jelly.  "If apples are to be served uncooked, each should be washed in cold  water, wipeti carefully and then  polished with .a piece of flannel. Arrange in the fruit dish with some of  the leaves placed 'here, and' there,  lied apples, of course, are the most  beautiful. South, in fact, out of the  "apple bolt," where the fruit tastes  less like home, the people arc most  fastidious as to appearances, and  green apples "are passed by in the  market, while red apples, the brighter the better, find ready' sale. In the  North, Jiowcver, little attention, except for special occasions, is paid to  the color, but the flavor is the  standard of merit, each buyer having  a . personal preference. Not infrequently this taste results, from  pleasant acquaintance with some  partiedlar tree with which one associates  tender memories.  To salads, where tartness is wanted, dried apples are sometimes a  pleasant addition. Mixed, with r;el-  c.ry and English walnuts or with  boiled chestnuts, they are delicious  served with mayonnaise dressing.  Apples for salads should be pared  just before they are needed for  serving, and thrown into ice water  until everything i.s ready, so that  the color nmy be preserved. A little  ingenuity will discover a variety of  ways in which the bright colored  peel of the fruit may be utilized for  garnishing. Narrow, unpared, wedge  shaped sections of a. red apple may  be arranged about the edge of the  dish, with the ends pointing toward  the i-jentre, or a pretty combination  may be made of green and red  skins.  Tlie most delicious jelly made of  apples is of the cider kind. Tart,  green apples were usually employed  for tho purpose. They were washed,  sliced without paring, put into a  preserving kettle with new sweet  cider before it had shown any signs  of working,' and boiled until soft.  Then they are drained through a.  sieve two cupfuls of sugar were allowed to one pint of .the .liquid, the  whole was boiled for twenty minutes  and poured ' into glasses and sealed.  =������  Ceylon Teas are sold Ln Sealed Lead  Packets only.

Joseph       Chamberlain,       Britain's  great commoner, is a .man of definite  aims, and endowed with the inexpug-  nableness of mind and purpose.essential     to    their     complete   fulfilment.  Life  to him has always  been an unbending reality, a. ceaseless searching  for the solutions of present day problems.       Recognizing    the fact  that  England's dependencies must soon be  linked  with indissoluble bonds if she  is  to  retain  her  world-wide supremacy,' he has evolved a  broad schemo  for the knitting together of the Empire's   scattered   strands.     Generally  speaking    his    plan is to leave local  matters in the hands of colonial legislative  bodies,  and convert the two  Houses of Parliament    into    council  rooms for the chosen representatives  of the diverse powers that form the  Empire.     His Imperial  project calls,  among  other- things, for the English  as an ofiicial language, and as a first  result has raised a storm at Malta,  where  Italian obtains in  the courts, .  and indicted Britishers cannot tell on  what evidence judgment is being given for or against them.     The agitation     is     entirely due to  a few  disgruntled    members    of    the Maltese  Council,   who   recently  declared  that  a language was  being    forced    upon  them by the Colonial Secretary,  and  determined to revenge themselves on  the Home Government by refusing all  taxes,  most of which wero    required  for the immediate advancement of the  people.     As a matter of fact, in this  case Mr.   Chamberlain simply carried  out the wishes of a majority of the  islanders when he selected English as  tho ofiicial     language of. the colony.  Tho non-payment of some  tax. levies  compelled    him    to    take    measures  i which  would  ensure  their  collection,  and these acts have caused no end of  rioting.     No   serious  or  lengthy  objections  will be raised, however, and  in a few-years .Malta will praise and  honor     the    man who simplified her  court systems.  Mr. Chamberlain's policy in South  Africa- was vigorously denounced  when tho campaign commenced and  reverses began to pour in. but now  that defeat has been turned into victory his uncompromising attitude in  dealing with the Boers is gaining  general approval. When peace has  been restored to the Orange River  Colonies, they, too, will share in the  OLD   MOORE'S   SHADOWS.  His   Almanac    Issued   for  1902.���������  Some Predictions.  I    Although  almost    four months yet  remain of the year 3 901,   old Moore  has   already   prepared   his   wonderful  .predictions for .1902,  and  they _  are  ; now  being      sold  in  England  in  the  'famiiiai  form,pi the penny almanack.  }    The, war  in  South  Africa  will  ap-  jpareuitly end next   January ;  at   any  I rate this     seems to,- be     the hidden  j meaning of     the     prophetic phrase,  j "We shall  hear from  South     Africa  tidings of really good omen."      But  it     wil1  be a short-lived peace.     In  July   "we shall      learn  of a sudden  rising in South Africa.    Some, of the  smouldering  embers  of  revolt      will  he fanned into flame, and for a time  tilings will look serious for the British.    In the end the  Union Jack will  float again in peace." -"'���������  Reverting ' to January it is prophesied that "a King's messenger  will be seen on his road from Windsor  to   London,   involving   a     hasty  a  ,te  ,'i.iS-  of   the cabinet,  and for  A GOOSE BOURSE.  in Prague there exists a  "bourse," where yearly some  OOu geese change hands, its  active time lasts generally for  goose  5.000,-  lllilSf  about.  six to eight weeks, from the middle  of September till the first day?- of  November. Jhiring this time immense flocks of geese are driven into  the suburbs, especially from the districts lying on the right bank ' of  the Weischel. As the geese are driven in from long distances they are  "shod"���������that is to say, walked repeatedly over patches of tar mixed  with the sand. This forms a hard  crust on the feet of the geese, and  they, thus "shod," are able to cover  immense distances without fatigue.   , f   The Chir.ose 'nave twice sacked Mos-  and again in 1293.  meeting-  time at least all  the world will  ' in a state  of expectation  and  pense."

In the same month  will occur the death of a venerable  and respected nobleman, who for  more years than the usual span 61  life has devoted himself to his  Queen,  his King and his country."  There will be great times for  motor-cars in July, and startling  news from China in August.

But they are merely representative  of departments,  and so- far as   their  "material" goes are dependent upon  the permanent oflicials     who control  the complex machinery by "which tho |  State    is governed.    When    an oflice  in'1 the Government    i.s  filled   by      a.  genius and a statesman, he gets      a  grasp of liis department  which compels the admiration of the permanent i  officials, but generally speaking, even j  the successful   statesman   is  often    a  theorist,  and    the permanent ollicial  has to do the "filling in" with facts  and  figures  in support.  The British Empire is well served  in its permanent ollicials, and her  statesmen of all parties very properly place great confidence and reliance  in   these  gentlemen.  Our    system     of Covcrnnient has.  not     inaptly,   been  compared  to     a j  limited     liability company.   In    tho.i  .British Empire Ltd.. all l'ritish ciLi-^ J  zens, are    shaieholders.

M.G., who is permanent secretary at  tho Foreign Oflice. .It i.s a position  of the greatest delicacy, for a false  step may mean war. or, at any rate/  undesirable foreign complications.  The Colonial Oflice has played an  important part in recent years. The  permanent secretary is Sir E. Wing-  field.

THEBE,  CLEVER TRICKS    AND  HOW  TO DETECT  THEM.  A Well Known   Detective Tells  of  Their   Many   Devices     and  Tools.  There is no      rogue half so incorrigible   as      tho  professional   coiner.  I .'jays a well  known  detective.   A   rj-  j formed      burglar  or     pick-pocket is  j quite common ;   but     a  regenerated-  I coiner,      in my experience,  is      even  ;'niore rare than a black swan or     a  dead donkey.   There appears to      be  sonic fascination      in the misapplied  art ; foi   no     amount of punishment  scion;?  to      deter .a convicted   coiner  from   returning  to   his  moulds     and  batteries the very moment he i.s free.  The modern    coiner takes a- very  high, rank  among intelligent- criminals,  anci is as far removed from   his  forei unner of a few generations  ago  as an average man from an ape. The  coiner of our grandfathers' days was  indeed  a clumsy workman,  who  was  content with a hatterv made of jam-  gold, filling up tho cavity with  platinum, so as to preserve the proper weight and ring, l'y these  arfiiices the sovereign loses half or  oven as much as three-quarters of  its intrinsic value, while retaining  the unmistakable appearance of a  goorl coin.  , Probably none but an expert teller  could detect these impostures ;     but  and   manufactured   his  iron    and  tin,  bismute  and      the products of  would impose on none  coins  and  his  but  jars,  out <of  brass  ������������������skill"  would  the ignorant and  careless.

Jt is not, however, this physical fact alone which tends to render  the aspect of our suburban country  strange.

At, this .rate of profit the business is  quite lucrative enough to compensate  for a little risk -'and naturally such  coin's,'which are of full weight and  of standard silver, are most difficult  to detect. ,  i But most coiners are not satisfied  with reasonable profit, and they prefer to make: their silver coins of  antimony and lead (antimony furnishing the bulk of the coin) covered, of course, with a coating of silver. Spurious gold coins are largely made of platinum, a metal which  gives  the requisite' weight.  .The process of coining is really  very simple, although it requires  both delicacy aud manipulative skill.  An exact impression i.s taken of the  coin fo bo copied. and a mould is  made from plaster of Paris. The  molten metal is then pourod into the  mould through a small niierfure in  it.

Sheriff Tuck sold a mineral claim the  other day for a debt of .*f65, and got hut  ,-}!3.00 from the purchaser. This transaction has not either paid creditor or  sheriff very well.
