M  li  lt doesn't make a particle of difference  what he does or does  not  do,  1  can    never, never    lovo him    again I"  Eslie Reed looked at her husband as  he walked up tho garden path, and if  he could havo known her feelings regarding him ho would have been perhaps far less hopeful than ho was. Far  less hopeful that some time in the future  they would bo  to each  other as  they once had been���������loving and kind.  Ho  was looking bloatod and red and  seedy, and th'e very sight of him disgusted hia wife.     She had no faith in  him, albeit he Jiad not drunk anything  Intoxicating for three weeks; she was  expecting  him  to  come   homo   in   the  usual  reeling, maudlin    condition  every time h'o returned from the village.  Three    weeks    before   he  had  came  home one night and blustered around  and struck her.     It was not, a hard  blow,  but ii stung and outraged her  and she had turned upon him  like an  enraged   tigress  and  stormed  at  him  till he was sober and contrite as pos-  siblo.     Since tlh'on he had kept  sober  and had worked in the garden and all  around the place, and had seemed to be  trying to atone for what he had done  and to convince her that he was penitent  and resolved  to reform.  But  do  what ho would she could not soften,  but foil herself igraw harder still   toward h5*m, if that were possible.      She  was  altmost  frightened    at    her  own  hardness and wickedness, and one day  she decided to go away where she could  not see hiim at all, hoping that in time  tihe   feeling   that  now  possessed    her  would be replaced by a milder form of  dislike,  at least.      She cooked a good  supply of victuals and made other arrangements for his  comfort  and  left  the house, omitting to mention to him  that she was going.     He leaned on his  hoe  nnd watched  her go  out   at  the  gate.     She had not.vspoken to him for  days, and he was at last becoming impressed wi/th the idea that Elsie, onco  so "patient and loving, had become very  bitter toward him  indeed.  Finding that sho did not return that  night, nor the ,nexfc day, nor for many  days, a feeling almost,of despair grew  upon thitn. Had she gone forever ? No,  it could not be. True ho had fried her  patience for years and that night when  this bitter feud which was now sep-  araling^ therm began ho had��������� The  broom with which ho was vainly trying to tidy up the once neat kitchen  fell to tho floor and lay there, whilo  he who had been wielding it let his  thoughts go back and pick up every  little detail of that day which it was  possible to recall, considering lire state  he had beon in on tho occasion, inking  a sort of comfort! in torturing himsolf  thus.  Elsie had now been away a month  and all his eatables, oven to the last  cooky and bit of fruit cake, wore gone.  A certain elderly woman whom ho had  always known chanced to pass just  then and the demands of his stomach  Impelled him to leave off remorseful  meditation and ask her assistance.  "Could I get you to bake me some  bread ?" hits said, hastening out; "and  ���������anything else you please, you know,  Mrs. Lane. If you will 1 will bring  over some flour or���������do it any way you  please and I will pay you -whatever you  ask," he stammered, flushing under  her searching gaze.  "Why, yes, John, but where'a Elsie?"  Mrs. Lane, inquired. She was not an  inquisitive woman, but she waa twice  his age and had known him all his  life, and friendly interest prompted the  inquiry. John Reed had avoided  friends and neighbors of late, and  though it had been evident to" all that  something was wrong, no one, knew  exactly what was the trouble. "Elsie?  ' 0, she's^gocne to make her mother/a  visit. Left a lot of stuff cooked up,  bu it's all gone and���������so if you'll  please.������������������ "  "Oh, of course, John; I'll go right  at it when I get home. How nice  your garden looks, and I think you  rather beat Elsie at'making the flowers grow. She'll bo���������" Something  piteous and beseeching in John Reed's  eyes checked the kind woman's speech  and she nodded and smiled and went  on.  ffhen Jie   ate   his   cold,   sqggy   pancakes, the only .kind of bread he could  make    and, went  out  in   the   field   to  work.     There was a little comfort in'  Mrs. Lane's big basket of food that ho  found    awaiting him at noon  on  the  doorstep; still it seemed to John Reed  that that day would never end,    and  when  he   lay   down  .upon  his  bed  at  night there was .not 'a more miserable  or uncomfortable man in the vicinity j  He was ill, ibuh ihe did not realize.it.  A period of pain and resltlessness w'hich  seemed unending was passed, then he  became  conscious  of  someone  moving  in the other parts of the house.     By  a great exertion^of his 'mind he roused  himself    sufficiently    to    listen,    and  gradually he realized that the step going    from    one  room to another  was  . Elsie's. A sense of rest came over him,  and he resigned himself to the stupour  ��������� which for   a brief    moment    he  had  fought against, and while Elsie, after  a  brief    disdainful    survey    of    him  through the partially open door, went  swiftly about the house, restoring it to  Us wonted state of neatness, he had fevered dreams in which, she played the  part of an angel, and ho was in a state  c)E. ibea.mtude   tifroug-fi  heir  ministrations.  ElsLe_fohd returned home that day  tt 10 im fchfe morning, and' seeing her  Husband lying in ,a heavy slumber at  that hour o fthe day, concluded as was  natural  frota  effects of a nigh-Ts indulgence in  drinking liquors. Heartsick, dhte proceeded to rectify th'e results of his  four weeks' experience at housekeeping, and when out of the surrounding  chaos she had .evolved a degree of order and comfort, she proceeded to prepare a mea\ This done ahe stood for  a brief period cogitating as to what  io do. Never after Ms worst drinking  bout had she known John Reed to lie  in bed all day, and this according to  the clock was what he had in this case  pretty nearly accomplished, for it was  5 o'clock. She took a peep through  the bedroom door, hor tidy soul revolting at the dreadful disorder reigning within, aud (hero he lay, flushed  and stupid, as ever.  Something in the expression of his  face, and, more than, that, the absence  of thb scent of liquor, caused her to  observe iiim more closely. She entered, but with hesitation, and laid hor  hand upon his forehead. But a mom-  end more of close scrutiny and then  Elsie Reed hastened out, and after a  looked up and down .the quiet road in  a vain search for someone to send, sho  prepared hterself to go for a physician.  Details attending the illness of a patient running a course of fever are  neither interesting nor necessary to  the tolling of my story. Suffice it that  no patient was ever more carefully  nursed, still it was the timo of fruition and frost, even, before John Reed  stood again in his garden. Gradually as he regained his strength and  health, his wife had frozen toward him,  till now, as he stood among the autumnal beauty of his garden and looked wilh the eyes of a man who has  been almost beyond the gates of earth,  upon thto results of his latiors before  that wearing fever had attacked him,  they stood in very nearly the same attitude toward each other as upon, the  day of their estrangement. This was  not as John Reed had expected or hoped, and it was with1 a troubled heart  that he moved aimlessly about, living  under the snadow of his wife's cold indifference. To-day t'hero was tho light  of a settled resolve in his sad eyes,  which Elsie, who scarcely ever looked  at him observantly, had not seen.  She -was making pies in the kitchen  table when he came in from tho garden, and came iup and stood beside her  ior a moment, silently. "Elsie," he  said at length, "one day last spring I  did you a great wrong ; ono that_ I find  you can never forgive ; at least it was  my hand trial did it." He paused, but  slhb made no sign. "Can you not realize, dear, that it was not I who did  thlart miserable thing; not really I ?"  Still no sign or word from Elsie. "You  wilL ai least say good-bye to me ?_ I  aim going away, Elsie ; we cannot live  like this. i'orgive me if you ever can,  dear."  The rolling pin was vigorously plied  and stiLl no word was spoken by the  worker at the table, no stretched out  his hand toward her. "Good-bye," ho  said in a voice the pain and despair  of which were not hidden. He had  touched, and melted tho frozen spring  of her love and compassion at last.  She dropped hor work, and seizing his  hand pressed it to her lips, raining upon il kisses and (ears together. "By  God's help, I will keep what I have regained," he said, and he did.  o  | Aboof the House. W|!  STARCHING SHIRTS.  Aftor they have become "bone dry"  put the shirts, collar and cuffs through  a wheat starch mado by pouring foaming hot water over a smooth batter obtained by stirring wheat flour and cole  water together until it is tho consistency of thin cake batter. This should  bo boiled slowly for two hours and then  strained through a cheesecloth to have  it perfectly free of lumps. Add to each  quart of boiling starch a teaspoonful of | dl6������stible  white  wax such as is especially prepared for laundry work.  The secrot of a good smooth finish to  stiff starched chothos is in the method  of starching. This must bo carefully  done. Spread a shirt bosom over a  clean board, aad with a piece of thin  cloth rub the starch into the bosom,  with strong, firm strokes. Thero  should not be a wrinkle in tho linen  aftor it is thoroughly wet and starched  and all superfluous starch is wiped off  with a cloth. The wristbands and  neckbands are treated the same way  and the shirt is again hung out to dry.  When it is thoroughly dry���������"bone dry"  again���������the,shirt and collars are dipped  for a moment in boiling waler and  quickly wrung through the wringer  with the rollers pressed as tight together as thoy can bo turned. The  pieces should now be, left to stand for  at least two hours before thoy are  Ironed.  chioken pie, when the crust has been  made without a vent to allow for the  escape bf the steam 'and gases generated. The ' same ��������� effect, in lesser degree, may be noticed in tho cooking  of many, if not all, vegetables, in tho  boiling of beef, or In nny other closed  cooking.  The free JcircUlation of air is an admirable thing in cooking, as, witness  the broiling of steak, or the old-time  roasting of beef on a spit���������the" most  delicious and wholesome way of cooking. Whilo, ,in boiling, ib ia not expedient to leave the cover entirely off, on  account of its reducing tho temperature too much, it should bo left far  enough on to allow for the free escape  of the. steam. Cabbage, cauliflower or  spinach, cooked in this way, retain  their natural color, and are much more  SELECTING A CORSET.  Tho woman' who wishes as good a  figure, aa she can have, and to keep  corsets in shape as long as they last,  should buy corsets to fit her. If sho  is long waistedand slender and "pretty  much allot a size" all the way up and  down, she needs a oorset built in those  lines, just as a short, stubby foot with  low instep needs a shoe built one very  different last from that which suits  the long, slender, high-arched foot.  Th'o woman; who "is of matronly proportions, inclining to stoutness, needs a  corset desigaod for (hat type of figu.ie.  Iactdentally, a corset thai fits the fig-  uirei can be worn in a smaller size,  without injury to the organs of the  body,'than can one buil'l on tbe wrong  linos, supposing ono is not considering hygiene, but juist soulless fashion's  own view point! . ,  ���������It is a great mistake to think; that a  stout woman looks less stout when she  has compressed her waist measure into  the corset ineant for the slight figure,  On the contrary, her fat shoulders puff  up over the corset line at the back ;  the bones and steels ,in front and on  ���������(.ihe hips are boat and pushed out of  line, and after a. few times wearing  the- corset manufacturers.or their prin-  time.  The leading corset-innkei's to-day  manufacture a great variety of ready-  made corsets; in a wide range of  prices, yes, bujt what is more important, in a very wide range of designs.  This does noit mean merely with regard to tho materials and styles of  trimming; it means that corset manufacturers make corsets to-fit different  types of figures���������i. e'., the stout, short-  waisted, woman, the slender, long-  waisted womain, the stout, long-waist-  ed woman, the slender, short-waist-  ed woman, the woman whose hips are  small in proportion to her waist  measuire, and vice versa; the woman  wftto likes or should wear a high-  busied corset,, the woman who likes  or should wear a lowbusted corset,  etc. .--.-.  If a woman cannot find the corset  thlat fits her at her regular trading  place she can always order direct of.  the corset manufacturers, or tie r pnn-  cpial agents, and by sending the necessary measurements secure just what  s(he requires.

Sandwiches.���������It is said that some  timo during the last coniury the Earl  of Sandwich, an enthusiastic sportsman, invented the preparations that  were afterward known by his namo.  These are composed of different articles introduced between two thin  slices of buttered bread. , Those most  commonly used are game, beef, veal  and ham, tongue, mutton, potted  meats, fish pastes; hard-boiled eggs,  sardines, anchovies, pounded cheese,  cucumber, tomato, and ciess.  able seasoning should always  ed.

Season the cut-up meat with  pepper, salt and mustard, or whatever is required, and,' lay it' between  the slices of, buttered bread, press it  with the hand, and cut the sandwiches  into squares with a sharp knife. When  not wanted immediately, as for picnics,  lay" a napkin, wrung out of cold water,  upon the sandwiches to keep them  moist.

MEASLES NO SIMPLE DISEASE.  A physician states, that of all the  diseases which come to our little ones  and which receive too littio care, even  amounting to criminal carelessness,  measles stands pre-eminently conspicuous. So little thought is given to it  that 7������ percent so1 affected are '.reated  without the care of a physician. If accurate statistics were to be had, the  number of deaths from this cause alone  would bo frightful. He adds: "I can  say without fear of contradiction that  the deaths from measles alone would  equal tho number of the more dangerous infectious diseases. This is lhe  disease that is looked upon as the most  benign of all the diseases of childhood,  but in its results often prove tho opposite."  PRIVATE LIFE OF THE CZAR.  ������������������i '  A Peep Into tlie llonie I.lfc or Nicholas ol'  Itll-.Sl'l.  So littio is known about thef private  life and personal habits of Czar Nicholas of Russia that a volumo on this  subject, which has just beon published  in Germany, is bound to prove of  unusual interest. The volumo is entitled "Czar Nicholas II. and His  Court," and tho author is Bresnitz  von Sydacow.  Nicholas, we are told, is one of the  most reserved monarchs that ever sat  on a throne. He speaks seldom and  briefly and while he is, talking his  eyes are generally fixed on tho  ground. He rarely laughs, and does  not often even smile. Of danger ho  has no dread, resembling his fearless  grandfather in this respect. "I will  livo and dio for Russia; how, I die I  care not," he said a few days after his  accession.   . _  The Czar's homo life is "simple. lie  likes plain food at dinner, and he  seldom has many guests at his table.  He oats quickly, "liko all men who  are accustomed to work a good deal,"  and he drinks very little wine. He  drives al.oal in a small two-horse car-  HEIRESS LOVES ANAFRCAN  Verily, Africa is fast becoming oivl-  lized. An English girl has aotually  fallen In love with a dusky African.  And no ordinary girl is she, but one  with an abundance of [money and no  small share of good looks. Her name  is Florence K. Jewell, and she is the  daughter of Joseph Jewell, a "mining  engineer, who made a fortune in  Mexico.   .  Miss Jewell happened lo be at  Bloemfontoin, the capital of tho  Orange Free Stale, somo time ago, and  there one sultry afternoon her attention 'was attracted toward a young  Matabelo warrior. He was clad in his  picturesque, if decidedly barbaric, native costume, and the ordinary travelled* would have seen in him nothing  m'oro than a stalwart African savage.  Miss Jewell, however, saw a good deal  more in him���������so much more, in faot,  that sho lost no timo in finding out  who ho was. **  She was informed that he was a pure  blooded Matabelo, that he was known  as "Prince" Loben, or Lobengula, and  that he professed to bo a relative of  the famous Matabole king of that  name. {3ho learned further that ha  was going to England; where ho was to  bo/ tho leading figure in an Ethiopian  show   to be held in London.  Miss Jewell thereupon concluded  thai London would be a pleasanton  place for her than the Orange Free  State, and so sho bade farewell to,  Bloemfontoin, and followed Lobengula.  Ini due time that dusky potentate appeared afc the Ethiopian show, and all  London went to 3ee him. Miss Jewell  wenti with the others, and her admiration for tho Matabele youth increased.   There woro otner i*.rricans in the  ���������fl**  show, equally picturesque and almost  as stalwart and high born, but for,  thean sho had no eyes, all her attention being concentrated on Lobon-  gula.  Day after day she went lo see and  admire him, and, being a man, he naturally soon saw what an impression-  ha had made on-her. They talked ta  each other, aind the young lady was  surprised to discover that her dusky  Adonis could talk fluently both in  English and Dutch. What they talked about, only they two know, but  every ono can gues's. (Anyhow, they  soon, camo to an understanding, and  the result was that all arrangements  wero made for a speedy wedduig.  iMeanwhilo, however, Miss Jewell's  frionds had not .been asleep. They  saw how tho Afrioan had fascinated  the, wealthy girl, and they were determined that he should nol profit by  it. They hoped that it was merely a  girl's wayward fancy, but they were  undeceived whon the bitter news oi  the proposed wedding reached them.  Then they rose up in arms.

THE KETTLE COVER.  Advanced cooks who study into the  philosophy and physiology of cooking,  with its accompanying effects upon tho  digestive organs, object to tho,close  covering of any kettle, or stewpan,  while its contents are cooking. All will  recall  the  frequent  deadliness of  the  atliro. Indeed, it is said thatl he had  no frock coal until he visited Paris a  few years ago, and that the court tailor, who was only, accustomed to making his uniforms, was in despair, bo-  cause ho knew that his imperial master would be obliged to wear civilian's  attire in the Parisian ceremonies.  JJeing a man of resources, however,  he went hastily to Paris to study tho  latest fashion in men's dress, and he  finally  purchased a suit  for  SEVEN HUNDRED RUBLES.  This suit the Czar wore during the fes-  tivitcs  in Paris, and  the    story    goes  that ho felt very uncomfortable in it.  Nicholas is an unwearied worker. All  documents submitted to him- he reads  carefully,, and he frequehcly makes  notes on them with a red pencil. His  memory is wonderful, and it often  happens that months after he has  given an unimportant order he will  ask as to the manner in, which it was  carried out. j Summer and winter he  is the first to . arise in! the morning;  and he is working hard while the others are still sleeping.  _ During the day the Czarina sits beside his desk, sewing or embroidering.  Whenever a court official enters she  prepares to leave the room, but the  Czar invariably says:���������"No, my dear,  you won't disturb us," and with gcntlo  insistence he lays his hand on hor  arm and draws hor back to her seat.  Of his littio daughters the Czar '.is  wonderfully fond..- When the first one  was bom instead of the expected heir,  the Czarina, it is said, wend to her husband with tears in hor eyes; and begged him-to forgive her for not presenting him with an heir. Tho Czar in reply kissed her tenderly, and said that  he was very glad to have- a daughter  "When the Uzar wants to shake off  all cares he plays with his children,'  and; it! is on these occasions that he  seems most happy.  Affirm believer in popular.education  is Nicholas. While he. was heir apparent he once said:���������"Russia has had a  Czar who was a liberator; it also needs  a,Czar who will be. an educator," and  the people have not forgotten these  words.

In Jewish marriages the woman is  always placed to the right of herniate.  With every other nation of the world  hor place in the ceremony is to the  left.  ol] an uncouth savage. But how could  they prevent the wedding? 'Misa  Jewell is twenty-two, and can do as  she pleases. Thoy know that, and so,  instead of remonstrating, thoy pleaded iwilh her not to ruin her young life  in this mad fashion. She listened patiently to these pleas, and finally so  much pressure was brought to bear on  her that she consented lo postpone the  wedding.  No more extraordinary romance than  this has occurred in our day, and thousands who never saw Miss Jewell or  Lobengula will be anxious to know,  how it! will end. That Lobengula  should have spent so much of his time  in loveniaking, while in London, is certainly surprising, for the reason that  >thcr Malabeles who have gone lo the  English capital havo apparently had  ao timo to do anything except to wonder at the extraordinary sights around  them. King Lobengula sent emissar*  ies to Queen Victoria a few years ago,  and London was to them tho most  wonderful place ,on earth.     '  Some strange marriages are made  nowadays, but; this is apparently'���������:the  first time that a wealthy and oultured  white girlhas set her affections on a  native African. That there should be  ������ strong opposition to the marriage is  not surprising.

WEIGH BABY EVERY WEEK.  Nothing tells so accurately how  the baby is- thriving as its gain in  weight from week to week. Scientific  men have given such through study  to the "bottle fed" baby that this liny  development of our modern civilization  now stands fully! as good a chance as  his "mother s milk " competitor in the  matler of adding the desirable number  ol ounces from week to week to his  weight.  Al birth the average boy baby  weighs 7 1-2 ��������� pounds, is 20 1-2 inches  high; chest, 131 1-2 inches; head 14 in-  ohes. Girls weigh about a pound less.  They aro abouti the same height. At  one year tho baby should weigh 20 1-2  pounds; at two, '26 1-2; at three, 31;  at four, 35 ; at five, 41.  During the first six months weigh  /our baby, without ��������� clothes, every  .week; during tho "next six months, at  Jeast every two weeks. The first week  baby will probably lose from four lo  eight ounces, after which he should  steadily gain from four to eiglit  ounces a week up to the time he is  six months old. Now' baby will begin  ��������� tho troublesome job of cutting his  teeth, which will cul his gaining in  two in tho middle. .But in spite of  teeth he should, take on from two to  four ounces of weight-each week/ If  he does not do this there is something  : wrong' with his food, his airings or  .bathing.  There are many excelent proprietary  foods for infants; but it,is many times  not the easiest- thingin the world to  find which one of these best-suits the  idiosyncrasies of your, baby s stomach.  For this reason, the "bottle fed"  baby may not gain as rapidly as the  ono that is nursed, for the first two  or three months. After that the gain  should be quite as regular. . By the  timojjhn "bottle fed" baby is a year  old ho has a decided; advantage of his  nursing friend, that about this . time'  tho entire household is busy weaning  "Bottle fed'' baby is tucked down in  his crib,with his favorite nice, warm  tipple on the pillow beside him, quietly laughing in his sleevo at the-, baby  that has to go through' the process of  being  weaned.  lAt four months baby should hold up  his head; at five months he. should  have double his weight; at i seven  months ho should sit alone ; at between  nine and ten months old he should  bear his weight on his feet, and at  twelve months give you a proud little  grin when you1 lot go,his hands, hold  one fingor up to him and say, "Now!  AH alone." When he,is fourteen or  fifteen months old he will walk-all  over the room and keep you( busy seeing that ho'does not take a "header"  out.of bed or down stairs. Bull never  urge your baby to walk. He will do  it of his own accord as soon as his  bones and muscles are strong enough  Let baby sleep in,his carriage out  of doors if ho wants to. It is not  true that a child takes cold more easily  when asleep; on the contrary, he will  grow stronger and be less liablo to  take cold. ���������  ��������� In the summer and. early autumn  baby may be out of doors almost any  iraae between seven o clock in the  morning and sunset. In the winter,  modified somewhat. by climate, only  between ten or elevn o clock in the  morning and three o'clock in the after-  ncon.   See    that  the  wind   does    not  blow directly in his face, that his feet  are properly covered and waim. and discharge the nursery maid on the spot  thai lets the sun shine down into your  babys eyes, whether he is asleep or  awake.  THE STOCK POT.  No house, however small it may be,  should be without a stock pot; it is  tho " save all" of an establishment.  There is nothing in thfo shape of meat  that is sweet and wholesome that may  not go' into the stock pot. For the  benefit of the' stock pot, you should  not allow any one to pick a bone. If  you send a joint of cold meat into the  kitchon for the servants' dinner never  allow them to pick tho bone, for the  stock pot requires it, and will extract abundant nourishment from it.  In trimming a joint of cold meat for  tho table, pu,t the trimmings into the  stock pot; they lend lo clear lhe  stock. Hard crusts of dry bread may  be put in ; they ga.thor the scum, which  should bo taken off three of four times  in the day.' Ham, beef, veal, mutton,  lamb,'pork, bits of poultry, > game, in  fact, the bones or remains of any kind,  of meat should go in,to the stock pot.  Cold carrots and parsnips or the remains of onion santeo or gravy, the outside stems of celery, thoroughly cleaned and cut up, should go into the stock  pot. _In this you have the ground  work of almost all kinds of gravies  and soups. Tho stock pot should be  made with a faucet. The top being  not quite at the bottom allows room  for sediment, and thus you can draw  off the stock perfectly clear. It should  be drawn off and' thoroughly cleared  out about every twenty-four hours,  when the bones and the like should be  removed. The saving in a. year by  means of a stock pot is something enormous.  MAKE THE TABLE ATTRACTIVE.  Clean linen on the dinner table  makes the meal taste about fifty per  coal better. If flowers cannot be had  all the time, a good idea is to make  a little round flat basket of wire, pack  with moss and earth, and then, fill il  wilh tiny maiden hair ferns. It makes  a very dainty center piece, particularly if set aver a circular mirror.  FOR THE LITTLE ONE.  A-cover'for a carriage pillow is a  pretty gift for a young mother. It  may be of wash silk, with a deep ruTfl?,  or of colton or linen, hemstitched.  Baby s monogram should be embroidered on' one side.  THE   SAN JOSE   SCALE,  COMMISSIONERS REPORT THE DAMAGE OVERESTIMATED.  Suggestions for Extermination or the 1'eHt  ���������Will Cost a - Considerable Sam of  Money.  That the damage to fruit trees in  tho Province of Ontario by reason of  the ravages of (the San Jose scale has  been somewhat overestimated was one  of the salient points brought out by  the commission appointed by the Ontario Government to investigate the  mattor. The report was received by  the Minister of Agriculture a few  days ago, and recommended that further operations be carried on to exterminate tho pest if possible.. The  commissioners appointed were Dr.  James Mills, Chairman, President of  the Agricultural College at Guelph;  Prof. John Dearness of London, and  W. H. Bunting of St. Catharines.   .  The questions touching the operation of the San Jose scale were, briefly .* The localities in: which'it existed  outside, of, the Niagara section and Essex and Kent;, if it was confined to  those sections, and whether the destruction of the infested trees would  check the further , spread; if it was  practicable to combat it by the means  beforo adopted with hope of success;  as to'the danger through the scale being, carried from; the United States  side of the Niagara /River, and tho  means that might,bo taken to combat  this; whether .opposition to the provisions of tho scale act was unanimous  or whether adversity of opinion exist-  od, in the infested" aroas and in the  uninfested areas ; what changes might  bo mado in the mode of procedure; how  the work of inspection had beon performed ; that the commissioners mako  any suggestions to load to a completo  suppression of tho pest. ; ���������������������������'���������.  '.. OPENING OF THE INQUIRY.  Tho inquiry was started on June 20,  and ended July 14, the commissioners  visiting the Counties of Lincoln, Wetland, Wentworth, Elgin, Kent and Essex, in Ontario, also the 'New York  side of the Niagara River, and Catawba Island in Ohio. , One hundred and  sixty-eight witnesses were examined  altogether.  As to the extent of the infestation,  the greatest is in one-corner of Niagara Township, near Niagara-on-the-  Lake, and in the Township of Harwick,  Kent County, in the neighborhood of  Gould's Postoffice. There is limited  infestation at Kingsville, and smaller ones at St. Catharines, Winona, Burlington and near Chatham. In 91  other cases trees  planted  within  the  last two years were found Infested.  These were all destroyed, and this  year's inspection failed to discover  scale in any but 13 out of the 91 places,  scale was found in five nurseries, but  the infested stock was-' destroyed.  While the worst .areas of infestation  were not large Ihey wero in good fruit  districts, and the inspector estimated  it would be necessary to destroy 156,200  trees to be reasonably sure of oxtrem-  inating the scale.  DESI'RUCTION NOT A REMEDY.  The commissioners are in doubt as  to the possibility of checking the further spread of the scale and eventually  oilerminating il by the destruction of  the trees as provided by the San Jose  scale act. While the inspector thinks  the scale can be 'exterminated by  prompt and vigorous enforcement of  the act tho commissioners incline lo  the opposite opinion, and they are satisfied the result can be secured only  by a very large expenditure of money  and something like a guarantee that  the work will be done promptly and  the object undoubtedly accomplished.  There is not much ground for alarm  as to dangoirof reinfestation from the  United States iide of the Niagara River  the commissioners believe.  Tho opposition to the provisions  of the - scale act, the commissioners  state, is not unanimous. The majority of those whose orchards are infested'or in immediate danger of infestation are strongly opposed to the  enforcement of the act on the present  lines, because the .compensation is  very much less than it should be, and  because the owners are not consulted  in any way, either as to the variety,  age, condition or .value of tho tree to  be taken out. Many of them also add  as a third reason for their conviction  that the extermination of the scale is  impossible. Nearly all these maintain that they should be allowed Iho  option of treating their trees. Nine-  tenths of the witnesses whose orchards are not supposed to be in immediate danger are in favor of the act, but  advises ��������� an amendment which would  provide for larger compensation, nol  less than 50 per cent, of the value of  the infesled trees and two-thirds the  value of uninfested trees.  DAMAGE OVEBJSSTIMATED.  (The commissioners have been unable to form a definite and reliable  judgment as to the vitality of the scale  and ihe injury likely to be done it by  the Canadian climate. They were  forced lo the conclusion, however, thai  the damage in Ontario has been somewhat overestimated. In regard to  complaints about inspection, the commissioners find that thoy havo arisen  in most cases .from owners and onlookers, nol knowing the instructions  under which the inspectors were working. While wilh exceptional instances the work of inspection has been  faithfully done, still a good deal of irritation and ill-feeling has been caused by inspectors entering orchards  without informing the owners, and by  the severe blazing of trees wilh axe  and spade. They think that in future  a less offensive manner of marking  trees should be adopted, and they express the opinion thai in the past'there  has sometimes been an apparent lack  of due regard for the feelings and natural rights of owners.  Tho commissioners recommend that  the work of inspection be continued for  some time in a modified way; that  none but certified and approved men  be\ elm|pl.oyed, that the inspector he  authorized lo destroy at once all  shrubs and trees which show signs of  serious injury from lhe scale or have  their trunks and principal branches  injured by the scale; single infested  trees and shrubs of unprofitable varieties or in an unhealthy condition, even  though thoy may not be very much  injured by th escale; single infested  branches or limbs on trees which appear to be otherwise free from infection ,* that all infested trees and shrubs  except the above and all exposed trees  be  treated  according  to  the  " MOSI APPROVED METHOD,  that large discretionary powers be given to tho inspector in dealing with isolated infestations in districts which are  otherwise free, or supposed to be free,  from the scale. This work should be  done by the Government, but the owner of the trees should pay for the material and board the men and horses  during the time of treatment. Owners  of trees, not so badly infested should  be required to treat them by a prescribed method once a week, at least  from, the time of notice till the 15th  of October. Owners of trees- should  be pa id one-quarter, of their value  without discount, the fruit'on the tree  to be regarded as part of its value. The  method of valuation should be modified, so that .tho owner may be represented in some way. The fumigation  of nursery stock should be, done under  official supervision, . and" nurserymen  required to attach to every parcel of  stock sold a certificate of fumigation.  The suggestions of tho commissioners  are:���������  That the utmost care be taken lo  prevent tho scale from spreading.  That valuable trees bo not destroyed  when it may seem possible to save  them without serious risk of infesting  neighboring orchards.  That the owners o������ orchards, especially those who aro directly interested  by infestation or exposure, be enlisted as far as possible by and with tho  official workers in the effort lo. exterminate the scale.  Thai a brief circular of instruction  in regard to the most important facts  in the life history of scale-insects, and  of the San Jose scale in particular, and  the approved melhods of treatment be  prepared nt once and sent.'to.-every or-  chardist 'in  the  infested areas.   ���������  That a plan, something like that  submitted herewith, be adopted, to encourage every owner of an orchard in  the Province to make a careful inspection of his orchard next winter, with  a view to discover whether or not  there is any San Jose scale in it.  I    On the Farm. <%. (  9-&*>'&&&w&��������� ���������***fc/^"*k^.(i  THE PRODUCTION    AND    CARE OF  CIDER. ,  j  To make good cider, the first requis  ite is that the apples shall be sound.  To gell tho best results api>ies should  be ripe/ but not over-ripe 6r mealy. The  juice of a ripe apple contains more sugar ,than' the juice of a partly! ripe apple. The valueof apples for cider and  cidor vinegar depends on tho amount  of, sugar ;n the apple, and the amount  of this depends upon the season and  variety. Wilh very few exceptions,  late apples are richer in sugar than  early varieties and the indications are  to make your cider for drinking and  even for vinegar, of late apples. Sweet  apples do (not always contain more sugar thuja sour ones. In a sour apple  the sugar, is covered up with tho flavor  of the apple. Wild crab apples are rich  in sugar, but do not mate good vinegar oh account of the flavor of the  a'pple.  Mixed varieties with few exceptions,  make tho best cider for drinking. Any  one variety does not usually make as  good cider as a number of varieties  mixed. As a rule, sweet and sour apples mixed mako good cider. Hydraulic  cider presses have many* advantages  over other styles of presses, one of  which is they are quicker acting, and  are strong and durable. Pomace makes  a good fertilizer, but should lie in a  pile six months of a year before being put on the land. With good machinery, apples should yield at least  four gallons |to the bushel. Regrind-  ing and repressing will pay when apples are high in price.  The sugar in the cider ferments and  makes alcohol, and the alcohol being  weak, rarely over 7 or 8 per cent., not  being strong enough to keep, acetifies  and makes vinegar. Some of the apple  acids -are in' the cider vinegar and il  has an agreeable flavor which makes  it superior to vinegar made of grain.  To keep cider sweet is not! an easy proposition. For domestic use on a small  scale, heat thoroughly for 20 minutes,  at a temperature ,of 160 deg., then seal  up in fruit jars or bottles. This done  thoroughly will keep the year round.  Settling cider is less trouble than filtering. Small pieces of pomace will  go to the bottom ; then the cider can  be racked off. To mako vinegar re  quires a large amount of patience. Put  the cider away in good barrels, laying  them down horizontally, leaving the  bung out, |and cover the hole wilh netting to keep out flies. II should be  kepi moderately warm in the winter,  but this is not essential, only it hastens the fermentation. It is belter nol  to put the barrel in the sun in summer.  A bottle put in the bung! is worse than  useless. With ordinary storage such  as farmers usually have, il should  make good' vinegar in two years, when  it can bo racked off and  is ready for  ery than keeping the 'nuts perfect]?  tight, writes Joseph P. Jennings. I)  one becomes loose, the 'implement maj  be ruined in a short time. No machine  can do' good work if the closely fitting  parts are allowed to become loose. It is  astonishing how soon they will com*-  mence to wear themselves out ofi shape1  and how. soon the "machine will become  unfitted for use.  I, have on my farm an old rear cut  mowing machine which has been in  use for 21 years. I never got off the  machine to oil it without examining  every nut, and it any of them are loose  I tighten them, I mow over some^very  rough' ground, t>ut in ispite of this and  because of good care the machine is in  working condition to-day. The samo  principle holds good for every farm implement. Loss of aiuts on .a wagon often causes "serious accidents. Frequent  examination and proper tightening pay  better than any work the farmer can  do. The machine on which every nut '  is light works much easier and, is 'mud**1  more  efficient... ���������- i  DESTROY THE WEEDS.  If there were a general appreciation  of the many good productions of the  earth in the line pf luscioug fruits and  vegetables, there would not be such an  extravagant waste of precious land,  and such a neglect of opportunities'to  produce in abundance the rich and  valuable fruits on the lands now running to weeds.  Think of it, strawberries are a rarity  both with the town dwellers and the  farmers, w hile weeds abound in " untold" abundance.  Grapes are unknown on the majority  of farms and in the villages, while  weeds everywhere abound in great  plenty. [  In a word the innumerable varieties  of the precious fruits of the earth, both  in the vegetable and fruit lines, are  grossly neglected, both in the country  and towns, while lands that should be  devoted to the production of the grand  gifts of the creator are allowed to  grow upi in weeds of the most pestiferous kinds. ..,'������������������'.  Subdue, subjugate, destroy the weeds  and then produce the ground productions that a wise, and beneficent creator has graciously, and abundantly  blessed us all with.  THE YOUNG TURKEYS.  Ib is (best to give'lhe young turkeys  two regular feeds per day of the corn'  cake, wheal1 or young corn in thei milk  stage, cut from th'e cob. Some owners'  let the turkeys shift for themselves  from- the, age of shooting the; red up to  fattening time, but we think the'  fowls are kept in better condition and1  better flavored lo have ^regular feed'  once"or twice a day. Turkeys are great  foragers, picking .up all sorts of insects and bugs. Tobacco worms and  grasshoppers are special delicacies for  them. They are also great rovers, and  where the neighbors are turkey owners also it is best to ha,ve a certain  mark for one's fowls to prevent loss  and dispute.  FARM WELLS.  At this season of the year there is  great danger of the average farm  well becoming thus contaminated, for  bugs, crickets, small worms, etc., seem  especially inclined' to creep under loose  well platforms, thence fall into the  water. We have looked into wells in  which the surface of the water waa  almost covered with crickets and grasshoppers in all stages of decomposition  and the water had a sort of rancid-  butter taste, lyet was being used right  along because there was no other avail-  ablo supply.

The cost of feeding a chick is ono  cent a week for 10 weeks, or 10 cents  for 10 weeks. The amount is very small  at first, but on the fifth week the  amount is exactly one cent. After the  10th week the cost increases. The chick  should then weigh two pounds, livo  weight, costing five cents a pound. A  brood should double in weight every  ten days until the chicks are 40 days  old, whon they will gain greater, but  not so rapidly in proportion. If penned,  and fattened with carbonaceous food,  chicks will gain one-fourth theirweight  in 10 days after thoy are of the size  of three pounds. It is estimated that  ten pounds of food, mixed grain, will  keep a chick in good growing condition for ten weeks, bu,t if the weight  of two pounds is expected meat and  green food must be allowed. Tho experiments performed gave the above  results as an average. Some breeds of  chicks grow faster than others, especially those that feather slowly, and  the weight and cost will vary according to the climate, warmth, shelter,  and management .given.  KEEP THE NUTS TIGHT.  There is probably  nothing more essential ini the running of farm: machin-  BARBARIT1ES OF FASHION.  If ladies have not hitherto realized  the enormous destruction of bird-life  caused by the uso of egret feathers  for the decoration of hats, they can  no longer plead that excuse for a  wasteful and cruel fashion, says tho  London Standard. Our frequent protests are now reinforced by the official figures contained in a consular report issued on the trade of Venezuela.  There are two sorts of egrets, or white  herons, which breed largely in South  America, the greater and the less.  Both are remarkable for their beaut-  ful milk-white plumage, which is indeed, to thoso unfortunate birds o,  fatal gift.  The facts set out by Mr. Do Lemos>,  British Vice-Consul al Ciudad Bolivar, show that if tho process goes on  for many years at the same rate, the  birds must in time become extinct.  Nearly 900 of the smaller breed havo  to be killed, and a little more than  200 of the larger, to make about two  pounds of these particular feathers.  Striking an average between the two,  and taking the whole amount exported last year, wo find that the number  of rerets U-illpd was more than a million" and. a half. In Venezuela, we  presume there is no. Society for the  Protection of Wild Birds. But there  is in Hanover Square and it would  do well to renew the appeal .to ,tho  better feelings of women, which did  Cor a.time produce some effect upon  "society." .".-  ���������  But "aigrettes" ���������' in other word.,  the feathers of the egret���������are, unhappily, just now in fashion. The tradespeople who make a profit out of them  have an easy, mode of quieting scrupulous consciences. If a lady \seeins  io hesitate on the score of humanity,  she is at once assured that the feathers are only artificial. But, in  most cases,' theso "imitation" feathers .ire merely the spoiled ones. The  differenco in price may be the difference between four shillings and ton.  Hut the difference in cruelty is nothing. There are, no doubt, artificial  aigrettes which may be bought for a  shilling apiece. But with theso wo  are not concerned. They are not sold  by smart milliners. Surely there must  be plenty of other ways in which ladies could adorn themselves without  rosorting to the wholesale destruction of the feathered race. The  slaughter for which they are directly  responsible is perfectly wanton, for  the simple reason that they would  look just as pretty and quite as well  dressed without them. Yet a whole  species is being exterminated merely  to gratify a passing freak of fashion;  We can pardon .a folly which is indulged merely from want of knowledge or want of thought, but no defence is possible for sheer want of  heart.

(]Rv order),*  Chas. A. McKay.  Agent Kootenay Minors' Unions, B.C."  The Review has no other motive in  referring to the present mining difficulty in the Slocan than to tell the absolute truth, and in doing it alone, wo  may not be carrying out the wishes  complete of either of tho two parties  most interested���������the miners or the  mine owners. 'However, we must say  the foregoing notice published by the  "Agent of the Koqtcnny Miners' Un-  ionsf" in some of the eastern papers,  conveys at leayt two wrong impressions���������tho one that there is a strike  and the other that the owners aro endeavoring to reduce the wages of the  men.  In the first place there is nosfrike.  In addressing the miners here some  weeks age, nt a meeting called to heir  Mr. Walker, of tlio Spokane labor  organ, Mr. Stockhiun, then president  of the Miners'Union, said ihere was  no strike���������it was simply a lock-out.  The owner*, announced their intentions  to bhut down thoir mines on the 1st of  Juno, and, oi' courso, the men quit  when the employment, closed. That is  not a strike in tlie propt-r sense of the  word.  Neither have the owners attempted  to reduce wages. Up lo the date mentioned, they were paying ?3.50 a day of  10 hours���������the highest wages in the  world for such work, and they are all  as willing to pay it now as thoy were  then, if they could only get the same  service. If the miners will a������sist in  restoring the old condition of things  the owners as a unit will agree to the  same pay. Tins is certainly not attempting a reduction of wages. Unfortunately a condition of things, unasked for, so far as the public are  aware, by 'either men or owners, is  forced on the owners which prevent.-'  them from getting the original service,  and (hoy simply fay we are willing to  pay relatively what the allows us to  get, and even more. They say we were  paying 35 conts an hour for ten hours  a day; we can .now only get eight  -hoius work and we are willing to pay  37i cents an hour for it. Surely no  fair man can assert from either premises that the owners have attempted  any reduction of wages. The situation is, the men want for relative service a raise of wages to 43-J cents an  hour. This is the naked truth, and  nothing more nor less. If thero is any  one to blame the responsibility must  be placed on the shoulders of the government that passed the law that has  created the serious complications.  Every person in the Slocan, knowing  the laborious and dangerous work the  miners have to dov wants to see them  get all the money they can ; but at the  same tunc the owners arc just as much  in their right in saying what they can  pay as the miners are in fixing their  demand. It is not enough to say that  because there arc six or eight dividend  payers in the camp all are wealthy and  can afford to pay what ever may be demanded, as it is no secret that scores  ���������of owners will never get the money out  of their properties which they put into  them, even at moderate wages to the  .miners.  Those   who   intend  g-oii'sy camping    this  beny.  Getting wet, catch-  hit*- cold, drinking' water that is not always  piirc.or eating-food tha4  disagree!-, may bring  on an attack of Colic,  Cramps and Diarihoc.i.

Fowler's Exiract of Wild Strawberry,  as most of the imitations are highly dan-  gerous.  simply   throw in   the shade   any  instances    heretofore   exposed    in   the  courts.   These  things  loudly call for  the most diligent efforts   of  all who  wish  the future of the  country  well.  Tlie practice of purchasing has become  so general  that no  honest  man need  attempt an  election contest   as  it  is  money   that sways  the  results.   Th..t  there are Liberals in and out  of the  House,  as well  as Conservatives, who  revolt against this crocs without saying.  There is then  but one course open to  them, and that   is 11  united  effort  to  purily the electorate.   It is useless for  either one of the parlies  to attempt to  cleanse  the Augean  stables alone���������it  can only be done by a united effort of  well   wishers  of   the  country.     This  thing of personal canvassing is one of  the  chief sources  of all this   trouble.  So long as it is allowed by law so long  will unprincipled men be employed to  do it, and in their rounds learn all the  weaknesses of the electors with whom  they   come  in contact.      If  the   law  made personal canvassing  punishable  by    disfranchisement   and   imprisonment, it would go a long way towards  clearing  tri'j  atmosphere   of   election  corruption.    Lf we had   1 law compelling every mini to vote, who could  reasonably do so,  and prohibiting candidates, or their agents, from doing more  than holding public meetings and e're-  ulating their literature, thero would he  much less to astonish  the sensibilities  of   election   courts,   if,   indeed,   they  would ever be required.  friendly co-operation the best results  follow.  Up to a few months ago there was  this hearty co-operation between miners and owners in the Slocan, free from  distrust of every description. As a  consequence the district prospered as  few other districts of Canada prospered  111 the same length of time. Towns  sprang up in every direction ; mines  opened in every quarter, giving employment to hundreds of men at the  very highe.-t wages, and yielding a  voiy largo revenue for both Federal  and Local governments ; but now all is  changed. For tlie purpose of helping  a few politicians, lacking in abilities  to recommend th'em to ollieo, they pass  a law reducing by a lifill the earning  capabilities of the miners, unci leave  the situation iu a muddle, hoping that  in the scramble and mist they may  get a new lease of office.] [-This is all  they look after nnd all they care for, so  long as they hold the position of M.P.  P. the country may go to the clogs.  There is no denying the fact, ns some  of theso M.P.P's contend, that eight  hours is long enough to work in some  tunnels; but miners, ono, and all, admit they would much prefer to work  ten in others for the same pay. Then  why should an enactment be forced on  the country that pievents an amicable  settlement of all these matters between  owners and men as in days of yore?  No parties asked for such a law, and  certainly in the Slocan no one is benefited by it. In other camps, where the  prevailing wage was S3.00, there mny  hnvc boon an excuse for the shortening  of labor, but tinder the circumstances  there is no defence of a manacling  eight-hour law in the Slocan.

A BETTER UNDERSTANDING.  ELECTORAL CORRUPTION. ,  The exposures in  the Waterloo election, Ontario,  and in   many others of  the. Federal   bye-contests, lay  bare a  condition of things truly appalling.   It  has been brought out in  the Waterloo  trial that the Liberals  had  a gang of  men go through the constituency  and  wherever voters could be found, who  ���������were purchasable.pay them their price,  and hand   them money   to   purchase  others of their purchasable neighbors.  These were all reported to the faithful,  ���������and after the elections were over, lawyers interviewed them all informing  tliem that exposures of their offences  ���������would lead to   serious results.    This  was done to prevent them from giving  evidence in anticpated trials.   Now, it  is not to be supposed  that because a  voter is a Liberal he is corrupt, or because ho is a Conservative he is incor-  ruptable.   There is more or less of the  corruption  in  either party ,*   but  the  .tactics of these Liberals in these cases  Tho miners must not for a moment  imagine that in endeavoring to do the  best they can for themselves under the  mining laws of the province from time  to tiaic, so long as they listen to reason and are guided by the dictates of  fair play in the premises, the public  will hold them up for reproach. To  seo the matter fairly, however, they  ���������must confess that thoy are but one element in the question���������capital is the  other. Tlio average citizen of a country and the statesman, not the corner-  fence politician, who can see politics  no farther than he can sec personal  profit, see as paramount importance  the development of the country, and  they know that no country can develop  without the hearty and joint co-operation of capital and labor. Without  capital, holds cannot be opened for  the .employment of labor, and equally  capital without labor becomes a drug.  Under tbe circumBtnnces, then, it is  always best for each one to consult  and co-operate with  the other.   From  Children should always  increase in weight.

SCOTT & IJOWNE, Chemists, Toronto.   :  Tho Silvertonian, that is usually disposed  to write on all   subjects with a  degree of fairness, if, wc fear, taking a  serious fever and is now writing 'about  "scabs," etcetera.   That scabs   arc tho  result of sores  is  generally  conceded,  but that they can be created whore no  sores have existed is open to question.  If the Silvertonian  can find from   its  ni'itcrn. medica that, they can  it is a  matter now to the public.   That there  is, however, a   wide   latitude   allowed  western journalism is readily conceded,  but even it cannot be the more admired  by  calling  ugly   names.     it appears  that   the Silvertonian   is desirous   of  calling  all   miners coming from   the  outside "scabs," under the present condition   of   things,  but,   of course, its  vocabulary is its own, and no one  has  any particular right to complain of its  choice,   if   its readers   do   not.     One  thing  that ruflles  our neighbor's good  nature is a declaration of sonic Ottawa  miners that the situation in the Slocan  was misrepresented to them   by some  attache   of the  Payne,   among   other  things in  saying thero was  no strike  and "only the demand was greater than  tho supply."    Wc  have shown in another column that the late president of  the Sandon Minors' Union declared in  a public meeting there was"no strike."  This shows that   the Payne man,   in  saying there  was none, did not lie,  as  the   Silvertonian   says   he did.   It is  equally true that the   demand in the  Slocan is greater than the supply, for  if   the   mines   opened   to-morrow   as  many more men as  could be found in  the Slocan would have to be imported  from somewhere.     The whole Slocan  could readily take on  2000 men and it  is a question if there are 1000 in  the  whole country.    It   would   be   much  better for all interested if the presB of  the country, instead of calling people  "scabs," "liars" and   such other   nice  names,   would  only set to   work and  show the people's representatives that  while retaining an eight-hour law,they  would  be serving the country   by removing conditions  in it that preveat  miners and mine owners  from being  their own masters,   that would grant  them the freedom  of  their liberty���������  recommended by all honest British institutions.  The Nelson Tribune seems to stop at  nothing, within the limits of decent  journalism, to manufacture motives for  newspapers that take a view of public  matters differing irom itself. Steeped  to the lips in the "gold cure" itself, it  concludes that all differing from it  must be influenced by mercenary  motives. Because The Mining Review  now objects to the penal clauses of the  eight-hour law, on the ground that  they unfairly force conditions on the  owners, they limit miners to tlio condition of wards of the state, deprive  the country of a large, badly needed  revenue, and have given the Slocan a  set back Irom which it will take years  to recover, in the eyes of the Nelson  Shibboleth its motives must be sordid.  The Review desires to see the miners  get the highest wages possible, that  they aro not overworked and that they  are in all respects tairly treated, as  they are one of the two elements���������capital being the other���������through which  the natural resources of this, or any  other country, can be brought to  proper account. From the passage of  the law, we have held, it has greatly  interfered with all these conditions  and wc, therefore, oppose the penal  phase of it. It may be that as the  owners see we have'opposed tho penal  clause of the act, on principle, they  will patronize this paper moro than  they otherwise would have done, but  that is all there is to it. As, however,  our neighbor cannot see a principle or  an advocacy without a cash payment,  that being the first "nature of the  baste," the public can well understand  its reveling in its proper clement.

Sept 19���������F W Wright to Emily Swan,  April S. y D D McPherson to E Shannon Aug 29. ������������������  Four miners from Ottawa 'sign an  article in the Silvertonian saying the  Payne mine agent brought them here  under "the vilest kinds of falsehoods."  Some of these "falsehoods" are that  there was no strike, there no  trouble between capital and labor,  ihe ��������� demand for labor was greater  than the supply, * the wages were  the standard wages, etc'. Let lis see  how far these lire lies and endorsed  as such by the Silvertonian. Ex-prea-  ident Stockham said ' there is no  strike, only a lock-out. The public  know of no trouble between capital  and labor, only a law that prevents  them from coming together. We fully  believe that the complaint against tha  third count is as well founded as the  others. There is not a man in the  country today but knows that if the  managers were to announce a full start  up of the mines tomorrow there is not  enough men in the Slocan to fill the  jlaces���������they   would have   to be   im  ported from somewhere, therefore, the  supply woul-.l he unequal to the demand. We suppose the. Payne agent  told the men beforo starting just what  the wages should be, and whether they  were satisfactory or not tho men  should have decided before starting.  Tlie men finally ask if this is the free  country they read about. Well, it is  not, and it is the government, which  they call their friend, that has destroyed their freedom in preventing  them from selling their labor as they  clioose,  MRS. GILHULA.  Peraaanent  ,a������������ or uanoetPo  Some twelve years  .-itro Mrs. Elizabeth  Gilhula, wife of the  postmaster of Buxton, Ont., was talc en  ill with an obscure  stomach trouble  which her physicians pronounced  cancer of the stomach and informed  her that her lease of  life would be short.  On tho advice of  friends she commenced taking- Burdock  Blood Bitters. The results that followed  were little short of marvellous. Her  strength and vigor returned and in a short  time she was completely cured. Mrs.  Gilhula is to-day in the full enjoyment of  good health, and in all these years there has  not been the slightest return of the trouble.  Here is the letter Mrs. Gilhula wrote at  the time of her cure:  "About four years ago 1 was taken sick  with stomach trouble and consulted several  of the leading physicians here, all of whom  pronounced the disease to be cancer ofthe  stomach of an incurable nature, and told'  me that it was hardly to be expected that  I could !j ve long. Afterward the two doctors  who \\c.\o attending me gave mo up to die.  ''By the advice of some of my friends,  who know of tho virtues of Burdock Blood  Bitters, I was induced to try it, and I am  now li.ippy to **ay that after using part of  ihe fir-st bottle I felt so much better I was  able to.get up. I am thankful to state that  I am completely cured ofthe disease by the  use of B.

An Enslihli Syndicate Has Secured a Contract lo Build u Line to tlio, J'erslau  Gull���������Something About the Country  Through    Which   tho   Railroad    Will  Pans.  The report comes from Europe that  an English syndicate has secured a  concession from the Sultan of Turkey  to build a railroad through the Euphrates Valley to the, Persian Gulf. If  this he time, as is most probably the  case, wo ahall_ soon be ablo to go by  rail to tlio site of the Garden of Eden,  as it is located by the Bible.'.  Headers of Genesis will remember  that It is stated in the second chapter,  vorses 8-1-1, that "Tho Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and  there ho put man whom ho had formed . . . . and a river went out of  Eden to water, the garden; and from  thence it was parted, and became into  four heads," or streams, two of which  were the Tigris and the Euphrutes.  It is reasoned from these statements  that the Biblical Garden: of Eden was  in Mesopotamia, the district lying between the Rivers Tigris and Euphrates. .Trn������ being the case, it is no ex-  aggerati - say that the. new  rail  road whi       s to be constructed along  the- Valle.   of the Euphrates will pass  through  the    site    of    the Garden  of  Eden.        , ,  ITS TRADE IMPORTANCE.  ���������The importance of the project docs  not, however, lie in this, but in the  great country which will be opened to  trade and European influence by this  railway. The project of building a  railroad from Constantinople to the  Persian Gulf was broached many years  ago,' being first put into pructical  shape by the great engineer Be Les-  seps, who petitioned the Sultan to  that end, but in vain. England has  tried beforo to obtaki this concession  having entered upon negotiations for  this purpose in 1878, but all for nothing, on account of the complications  with Russia which then ensued.  It was Russia's turn some years  later to seek a similar privilege, but  this, too, was denied, although the attempt to hide tho real purpose of cutting England out was cloaked by tho  pretence that the road would run from  Tripoli to the gulf and connect with  Bagdad by a branch road, But the  Porte feared to give tho Bear a foot-  ' '   ixi" Asia  Miner,  and   the   project  untold wealth, its  fruits was tho delightful food of  oountless lands. All this was made  possible by the tremendous Irrigation  system, by means of canals running*  from the great rivers which raa  through the country. These ruined  waterways are the marvel of modern  engineers, who wonder at the scientific achievements of thousands of  years ago. But-all of these could bo-  restored to usefulness, and the rich'  soil, almost virgin now after its centuries of rest, could once more be  brought to yield abundantly to its"  cultivators.  ad  wildness ���������. ���������_. ,      . . _ ,   _  her fearful and wonderful costume.

"Two rushing school girls," was  Mrs. Harding's contemptuous mental  comment. "I hope Conrad won't be so  effusive toward her.'?  The thought had scarcely bep,n formed in her mind before Conrad Longford  and his father joined the party.  To  be Continued.  CAMEL RACES.  They Enthuse Hie Lovtrs or Sport In  Fur-  OH* Alscrla.

I only wish  I was rich ; I wouldn't ride in this  beastly cab and be jolted and rolled  about like this, if I were."  . And she made a grimace so expressive of disgust, ,that .Eva, who felt herself to be in some measure the cause  of her companion's annoyance, hastened to 'say;  " I am very sorry you should have  taken the trouble to come and meet  me,  if  you  dislike riding in cabs    so  much." ,.   ���������   ,  " Oh, you mustn't take any notice of  mother.  It was an odd family that Eva had  been sent to live with. Clever, well-  meaning people in their way, all , of  them addicted to "gush," and every  one, from father to Bell, evasive of the  responsibilities of life, and ready to  make any shift rather than boldly face  a difficulty.

The ordinary folding fan was invented in the seventh century by a Japanese artist who derived the idea from  watching a bat closing its wings.  hold  was  dismissed.  At last Germany succeeded in doing  what all of the other Powers had failed to accomplish. In October, 1888.  the German Bank concluded an arrangements with tho Turkish Minister  of Internal Affairs, by which it undertook to build a railway from a  port opposiie Constantinople, first, to  Angora, aud later to Koniah. On  November 27������ 1892, four years later  than the signing of the agreement, the  first train was run from Ismid to Angora, and tbe Anatolian Railroad was  an established Lnstitiution." Kaiser  Wilhelm has not shown himself a  friend of tho Porte for nothing. Ho  desired an outlet for German industry  and capital, and he has found an excellent one. How excellent the world  is just beginning to find out.  EMPEHOR WILLIAM'S PET SCHliME  The extension of this railway from  Kcniah, iirst .to Bagdad, abo.tit /a  thousand miles, and thence, to Bas-  sora on the Persian Gulf, another four  hundred miles, has been a pet scheme  of the enterprising young monarch.  The move by which England now undertakes this work is but ono result of  tho entente cordiale lately sealed between him and his grandmother. It  means much for both Great Britain  and Germany. To Great Britain it  means a new and short route lo India,  a saving of at least five days over (he  Suez Canal route; to Gormany it means  a new field for colonization and a  good feeder for her road already in  operation.  The value of the country through  which these roads will pass has been  littio considered, perhaps because of  tho degeneration from which it has so  long suffered. A glance at the past  of this land of wealth is necessary to  an understanding of its future.  Asia Minor,, every schoolboy knows,  was the seat of the world's earliest  and highest civilization. Here wero  Assyria nnd Babylonia, enjoying the  sciences and arts five thousand years  13. C. We know from the Tel-Aniarna  letters that Egypt anxiously sought  ah ulliancc with Assyria, 1590 II. C  Loss than a thousand years later Palestine was overrun by her warriors  and the Jews were taken captive in  Assyria.  BATTLEFIELD OP NATIONS.  Phoenicia, with her ships plying nil  over the then known world, was situated on the1 western border of this  land. Croesus, the richest man  known to history, was King in Asia;  Minor. The flourishing settlements  of the Greeks were situated /on the  northwestern shores, and there, too,  stood ancient Mycenae. It was the  battlefield of the .nations, where  Greeks, Parthians, Romans, fought for  supremacy. .'Here-, were'the realms of  Cyrus and Alexander the Great.' The  degeneration of this fertile land began  first by the decline of its ruling dynasties, and then when it became a part  of the world embracing Byzantine Empire in the seventh century.  In the thirteenth century it was  overrun by the Mongolian hordes,in  their western emigration, to be eternally doom'ed by the .conquest of Sultan Selim in the sixteenth. Ever since  then it has been the property, of the  Turkish  Empire.      -! "  RECORD OP THE RAILROAD.  The record of the railroad, whieh has  boon in operation only for a few years,  and ovor a small territory, ia an indication of what may bo expected here-  aftor. The first year of its operation this railroad carried 300 carloads  of wheat, the second it had 700 of that  cereal to carry. The first year it  hauled but 70 car loads of rye, tho  second BOO. The first year thero were  400 car loads of corn, the second there  were 700.  So the story ruins for theso staple  products, which aro wanted always m  the world's markets. The railroad  has dono much to alter the character  of the country, to build up towns, to  open factories and bring good European colonists to cultivate its soil. Ono  of tho chief bars to tho progress of the  country has been the shiftless Turkish  inhabitants. They will not use any  modern tools, they ,do not want to bo  rich, thoy do not want to learn. They  do not know whaty'a harrow is, and a  cultivator'or harvesting machine is  something entirely beyond thoir comprehension. All they ' care for is  enough coffee to drink and enough tobacco to smoke.  Thoy   will  not   sit   in   the  seats  on  tho railway, but squat an the floor, so-  that at last it was (necessary to take  out the seats and leave the passonger  coaches almost like cattlo oars. Some  of them at first refused) to utilize the  cars for riding  or for  shipping,    but  this prejudice is now passing away, as  the increased earnings of the railway  show.      The chief'dependence for  tha  future,    however,    lies  not  upon  the  presont population, but upoir the immigrants    which  the    railway  brings  wilh  it.      Instead  of  taking  days   to  transport goods, with groat'risk from.  Bedouims  to caravans,   thoy  are  now  shipped in hours  by  the railway.  THE  SPARSE POPULATION,  which  seemed  to   be  an   objection   at  first, mow proves an advantage for the-  newcomers from Europe have no difficulty   in finding  all  the  room   they  require.  If the question now be asked, "What  can the land produce ?" the answer  might be given, "Everything," for the-  climates of the different parts of Asia  Minor and Mesopotamia are so different that almost anything that grows  anywhere can bo raised successfully  somewhere in this broad domain.'It ia  the railway that will bring tho needed,  energy to make the whole land blossom and bloom from end to end.  Croesus, King of Lydia, is reported  to have drawn his wealth from the-,  sands of the Uiver Pactolus, heavy  with gold. The mountains whence  this stream originates must still have  untold troasure hidden in thoir bowels.  Only of late European enterprise has-  awakened to the facts, and several  companies are now working the silver,  copper, iron and load mines of the  mountains.  According to legends, which are almost history, Mithridatos found his-  store of precious stones in tho valleys,  of the Pontic coast;,and it is now settled that onyx, agate and jasper are  to be on the coast of Trebizond.  'i'ho future '.oiuls, to Asia Minor and  Mesopotamia a3 powerful rivals to-  Africa, offering a better climate and  richer reward than can be found in  the torrid wilds of either tha East or  West  African coast.

Among the many in this vicinityj-  who firmly bolieve in the efficacy of  Br. Williams' Pink Pills asa'-*ure fur  rheumatism is Mr. John Stewart, of  Hortonvillo. To a representative of  the Acadian who recently interviewed  him, Mr. Stewart said he had been a  victim to the pangs of rheumatism for  upwards of twenty years. Two years  ago Mr. Stewart was Lhrown fiom a  load of hay and was injured so severely  that he was obliged to take to his bed.  While in this condition bis old enemy  ���������rheumatism���������again fastened itself  upou him, tlio pains radiating to  almost every joint in his body, making  life almost a burden. He had read  frequently in the Acadian of the-  cures effected through tho use of Dr.  Williams' "Pink Pills and doclded  to give them a trial.. After the  use of a few boxes tho -pains began to-  diminish, and his general health began to improve. Mr. Stewart continued taking the pills until ho had  used eight boxes, when the pains had  entirely disappeared and another victory over disease had been won by this-  peerless medicine.  The Acadian van add that Mr. Stewart is worthy of every, credence, as he  is a man  of  intelligence  and sterjing-  qualities, whuse word is unhesitatingly:  accepted by all who know him.  The public is cautioned against  numerous pink cqlore.d imitations ,of  these famous pills. The genuine are  sold only in boxes, the wrapper around  which bears the words "Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for Pale People." If your-  dealer does not have them they will bo  sent postpaid at 50 cents a box, ior six  boxes for ������2.50, by addressing Oho Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville^  Oat.

E. Soton Thompson, naturalist to the  government of Manitoba, gives in his  - book, "Wild Animals I Have Known,"  some curious examples of ' depravity  among wild beasts. The best story is  that of the New Mexican wolf who led  a band that killed a cow a day for five  years. Finally the ranchers offered  S1.CO0 for this wolf's pelt. Ho was eas  ily distinguished. His track was an  inch wider than that of other .wolves.  A professional wolf-hunter tried to  earn tho bounty, but the wolves killed  his   dogs  and   he   gave ,it   up.      Then  * Mr. Thompson took Jiha case. He melted cheese in the fat- of a hoifer in a  china dish, out it into lumps with a  bone knife to avoid,.the taint of metal  and put in strychnine and cyanide in  odor-proof capsules. Ho wore gloves  Btoeped  in    cow's    blood, and avoided  ' bronthing -on tho baits. The baits  were picked up. Ho followed - the  track and found that the wolf had lain  all four logelher and scattered dirt  over them.  The wolves then took to killing  sheep. Traps were set to the number of  130 in different parts of the ranch.  Tho trails of tho big wolf and of the  pack wero traced up to one set of  traps, and the doings of tho leader  were marked in the dust. Ho had  stopped the rest, warned by scent, and  scratched around the trap till ho found  the buried chain and picket. On another part of thci ranch he entered an  H-shaped series of traps, and detected  the danger.     The trail showed that ho  ' had slowly. backed out on his own  track, putting each paw down backward until out , of the dangorous  ground. He had then sprung some  of the traps by scratching clods and  .stones, backward at them with his  hind foot. He was at last oaught by  dragging over the traps the body of a  Jemale wolf, the scent of which ho followed.       ' - V '  -fo more skillful criminal than this  wolf was ever known. Old Eph, a  lame grizzly, which in two years ruined half the hog-raisors in tho Sacramento valley by his wasteful love -of  pork, was a close second. A bob-tailT  ed wolf kept the whole city of Paris  In terror for ten years at the beginning of tho fourteenth century, and  the Lochneo panther, in India, killed  .800 human boings in less than two  yoars. A famous roguo. dog of Derbyshire was oonspicuous by its faithful care, of sheep in the daytime, but  was savage and ugly towards men  strangers. It slept in the house, and  .was never suspected,, though shoep-  worrying took place on thie farms  near. At last it was tracked in tho  snow from a fold where twenty sheop  had beon killed to tho farm  where it  ��������� lived, tho dog having forgotten that  tho track would show, though it took  partial means to conceal it by running along tho  top 6f a stone wall.

One of the many rules hedging those  who cater to tho wants and pleasures  of royalty is that a strict secrecy shall  bo maintained as to the sayings and  doings of their royal masters and mistresses. Many a secret has gone to  the grave untold, owing to the conscientiousness of the hearor or seef,  who, bound by the oath of office, would  rather die than divulge what the  >vorld ia lever on the qui vivo to learn.  It is said that when Miss Adeane,  who is now Mrs. Mallet, was appointed  maid of honor in the Queon's household,  she wasyvisiting ,in a household where  was a well I known man of letters  and  wit. ";' ''"-:" "���������"���������'"  " What a fine . opportunity you will  now havei to keep an interesting diary,"  ho.said to her.    ���������'  Miss Adeane responded that, according to the Queen's conditions, no one  was allowed to keep a, diary when at  Court. But disbelieving,. the man  laughingly responded, "I 'think I  should keep a very secret one, all the  same;" to which the future maid of  honor'��������� courteously replied:��������� 'y  " Then I am afraid you would not  be a maid. of. honor.'*.  The term," maid of honor," seems to  have a wider significance than is usually applied' to it. It is to be not only  a maid, who is honored byher. elevation  to the membership in the royal household, bu t it is to be a maid whose honor  Is rased in defonoe of her mistress by  Bjpeoch or silence, as may be required.  '������������������"' *   REFLECTIONS, OF A BACHELOR.  Thero-is no euch thing as a heroic  falsehood.  Shame can know love, but love knows  no shame.  The dead are the only friends(we  have always with us.  ���������Before ho moves every man ought  to make ujp his mind to fall from  grace.  It takes a woman to be unhappy  thinking how unhappy she would be if  she were not aa happy as she is.  It isn't true that one woman can't  love anbthor; she can like her until  she finds out'that a man she likes also likes her.  The moro a man loves a woman the  less he likes her faults. ; The more  ,,a woman loves a man the more like  virtues seem his faults.  , The belief in God is probably almost  as instinctive to a woman as the idea,  that she can't clean house properly unless she has- a sunbonnet on.  ���������������������������������  ���������  A SUCCESSFUL SHOW.
