Spokane, May 2.3.���The mine owners  of the Coeur d'Alenes propose to cooperate with the staie authorities of  Idaho in'preserving order, and v/ill  immediately start up all the mines in  the district. ,    .  This, was decided upon at a meeting  of the Owners held in this city yesterday. The following mines were  represented: Tiger-Poor man, Standard, Hecla, Mammoth, Helna-Frisco,  Black Benr, Gem, Morning, You Like,  Bunker' Hill <fe Sullivau, and Empire  State (Last Chance). The decision  was unanimous.   . ,       '  The wages paid at Burke, Gem and  Mullan are $3.50 a day for all men  working underground., The wages at  Wardner are $3.50 a day for miners  and $3 a day for laborers or -'muckers." Three hundred and fifty men  aire already at work at Wardner, and  the other camps can give immediate  work for 1000 men.  Wardner, Idaho, May 22-.���The  Western' Federation of Mineis is likely  to be split over the question of dealing  with tlie situation in ��� the Coeur d'Alenes. The few members remaining  in the district have been sullenly  .awaiting developments in the hope  that the order would not be enforced.  Now, however, when , every union  mine in the Coeur d'Alene has been  closed absolutely they are Ik ginning  to realize that the adniini.sinttion  means business.  Sunday, afternoon at 2 o'clock tiie  Butte Union held a meeting when the  mat ter "was considered. It was finally  decided that the unions throughout  this district had best surrender their  charters and suspend ihe fight until  the troops leave here. Meanwhile  married members, who are beuomiug  a drain on the federation's linimccs,  will be permitted to renounce (he  union ("not") and thereby' get permits lo return to work.  Ed Boycn, the president of tiie federation, and Col. Pat Beddy of San  Francisco, who has beeu employed to  defund the strikers, are credited with  being opposed to the scheme. Both of  them nre trying to bring about the  annulment of the order compelling  miners to renounce the union before  seeking employment there. Boyce is  opposed to suspending the fight at the  present time.  Up Canyon creek the miners are  still sullen and disposed to be  defiant.  MAMMOTH   RETAIL   EMPORIUM.

O'Farrell, that gifted writer  who has been so instrumental during  the past few years in placing the mineral resources of the Kootenays prora-  inently before tho people of both the  east and west, landed in Moyie last  evening, and will remain here until  next Tuesday morning.' Mr. O'Farrell  is interested in the Moyie and^ Kimberley townsites, and it is for the purpose of looking after these ' that he is  now in East Kootenay. He has been  unceasing in his efforts tp secure the  necessary railway accommodations in  Moyie, and feels "confident now that  the desired effect has been accomplished.  The following concerning the Moyie  and Kimberley townsites is taken  from the. Spokesman-Rflview'of the  2-ith, inst:   ' '  ���-  "P. A. ,0'Farrell. and   J.   F.  Reddy  are at outs over their town site schemes  in   British    Columbia,   and    the   first  named bas sued the latter  for  $3,000.  Mr. O'Farrell says that early   in  1897  he   and   others    furnished   funds   to  Reddy to buy a  half interest   in   the  townsites of  Movie and ' Kimberley.  with the understanding that O'Fanell  should have   a   tenth  interest  in   the  townsite of Moyie  and   an   eighth   in  Kimberley. Redd3- took tbe title in his  own" name, and ifc is  said   sold   ^6,200  worth of lots in Moyie aud $3,300  in  Kimberley.     Later,    it    is    claimed,  Reddy,   by G. J.  Riner,  his   attorney  in fact, -''conspired to defraud plaintiff  of his interest in   the  townsites,"  and  January S, 1S9S. sold the half interest  in each town to P. J. MoMahon. ' The  prayer   of   the   complaint   asks  judgment for $3,000 and costs."  Xe-iv, Storo in Town.,  Moyie has another store. It has  bloomed forth under the name of the  Moyie , Clothing Co., ' with W. S.  Morrell as the manager. The store is  located in the cemodious rooms in the'  west end of the Central hotel, on  Queen's avenue. It is the intention  of the company to carry in "slock  every thing in' the gents' furnishing  line, and to sell at prices lower than  can be had in outside towns.

In pursuance of the directions left  by Mr. Barnes and communicated,, to  him by Burrows, Squire Olnoy, empanelled a Jury, taking ihem.to the- Lewis'  farm, and allowing tliem to examine  the corpse, where it lay in the position  {is when discovered. He then adjourned the inquest until the return of  the absent detectives. Meanwhile he  .ordered Dr. Snow, a. competent' sur-'  jreon, to make an autopsy, placing1 the  corpse in an upper:,room and in charge  ��jf the physician.  '   The  jurymen   and   assembled "neighbours dispersed slowly, as though loath  to   the   leave   the   vicinity.       Burrows  mixed   with   them,   hoping   to   extract  some clue by conversation which might  prove of value to him.     In this* he I'ail-  ��-d entirely.      The greater number .apparently suspected that Walter .Marvel  was implicated, and a.s he was a pon-  Vral   favourite   they   feared     to   speak  "With   the   detective   lest   they     should  compromise their friend.  '   One man.   however,   voluntarily    ap-  piwu-hed him and said :  *' They tell me as how you're the detective."  " You are quite light," said Burrow.s  hopefully. "  "My, name's Skene," paid the other,  " Josiah Skene, station-agent, down to  Lee���Deepo'. I hearrr 'bout this inquest, an' tho't I'd run up an' see how  ��� you're sittin' ,011. Anybody 'rested '!"  " Well, that only goes to show. 1 al-  with a smile. " We have only been at  work a few hours, you know."  '" Well, that only goes to show.    T always tho't as how them stories in the  Borston papers wuz kinder- far-fetched.  They  make   out's  though you detective  fellers wuz o_uicker'n greased lightning.  I  guess  you    ain't' no    smarter    than  other, folks.     1 guess 1  could put you  up, to snuff in this case anyway."    Mr.  Skene   took   his   long   chin   whisker   in  ]iis left hand, stroked it once ancl turn-  <   ed it up so that he readily bit the end,  the while loooking at 'Burrows through'  the corner of his eyes, his head turned  partly away  as  though  he  were  contemplating some  thing  on the distant  horizon.  "Do you know anything ?'1'',J3ur-  , rows spoke with a little anxiety. He  recognized that the man was an eccentric and feared to do or say something  that would antagonize him. After a  long  pause  came 'the  reply.  "Mebbe." Only this one word, muttered without removal of the whisker  from his mouth. Burrows waited for  more, but was forced to continue the  conversation himself.  " Mr. Skene, this is a dreadful business, and if you can help us to unravel  it I am sure you will do so.''  "Ain't   that what I'm   up  here  for?  D'you   s'pose   I   tramped   up   here   for  exercose ?    N'ot much.    But the joke is  that   you  should   need   me   to   tell   you  anything.      You're    a  detective    from  Borston.    ��� T   tho't  as  how  you  fellers  wuz so so cute-like, that you jest  looked at the dead man an' 'rested the mur- 1  derer straight'oil':  saw his likeness in  the corpse's eyes, or suthin'.   j\-e read I  that in  books,  but 1 guess you reel de-  leclives   ain't  so .darned   smart  as   all  that, hay '."'  ������ jVo,  1   am afraid   not.      We  are  no  smarter than other folks, only we maJte  ere us. Then ,i\hcri 1 hearn of the  murder, - .why/ it j-a.ll come tn me as  plain as a pikestaff. That mysterious  visitor come up expressly to kill  I-jf-wls. That's why he wuz so darned  anxious1 to ^;it outer town ajj'in las'  night. Uudi i- Hum circumstances it  ain't likely as how he'd buy a ticket  frcm  me." >,  "At   what   time   did   he   arrive   and  at   what  lime did   lie leave ?"  *��� He come in at i.OT, an' he kctehed  tho 10.29 down."  " Which way do you mean by  down '!"  " Why, man alive, don't 3-011 know  ,that much ? J.vnvn is down. Down  to'ards Xaahuwav, Wooster an' that  'ere ivav."   ���  " Ycu   must   excuse   my   ignorance."  said Bui-row's,  humbly.     " 1 don't nre-  trrrd   to   know     everything,     you   s.;o.  JVovr, one thing more���X must tell yon,  though   T   rrosunie   you     know   it   already,   that   it   is   of   the   utmost   im-  jxrtance   when   a   detective-is   trying  to   catch   a   criminal     that   he   should  keep  a   close   mouth.      As   you   and   I  are   working   together,   as   it   were.   I  must ask you to speak to no one but  myself."  This   speech   was   adroitly     worded.  Burrows vvas anxious that Mr.  Barnes  should  not hear of this new clue,   intending   if   1 ossible   to     work   it   out  alcne.      In ��� order   therefore,   to   close  the mouth of this egotistical countryman   he, ingeniously   included   him   in  his   work,   having  discerned   that   the  fellow wa.s anxious  to, havo a tale to  tell   to   tb<?  frequenters   of   the   saloon  of   how  " me  an'   the.   detective, from  Borston   worked   un   the   case."      Mr.  Skene, how ever, made one feeble protest. ���*  " Well, as to that," said he, "I 'Am",  as how I'd have to go on the stand  at the inquest an' tell what T know."  He evidently counted upon the notoriety to be gained by such a pro-,  cod u re.  ���'Oh. of eourre !" said Burrows, hastily endeavouring to i-atisfy him upon this point. " i" will tell "the squire,  and he will call you unless he should  be afraid to let your story bv known  tijo i,oon. I think, thouph. that you  'will   be   called.      What   T   meant   was  attention  to the fact that  it might be  as well  hot to read  the  will  until  notice  could   be  given  to  other  possible  beneficiaries under its provisions.     The  squire forthwith  opened and read   the  'japer.      Jn   substance   it   was   to   the  effect   that   the.   house  and   all   available   funds should   become  the   uncoil"  diticr.al  proicriy  of    Virginia    LewL=.  There  was a 1 lause in which an allu-  sic'n   was   made   to   tho   son;   but,   far  from   making   him   a   losatee,   it   was  plainly explained that Lewis pere considered  that his  son had  forfeited  all  claim   tiuor. his  bounty,   and   therefore  no  direct provision   was  made  for his  receiving   part     of   the     estate.      But  tl'i-re was a request that,  in case the  3"oung  man  should .return   home,   Virginia should do  fur him  whatever his  circumstances seemed to  i-eouire.  Burrows listened with close attention and quoted this clause with much  interest. Here was evidence that the  young mail; then present, could not  have committed the crime with the  tutainty of ir.heritin;.. Lewis then  said :���  "Well, gentlemen, it seems that T  am not the owner of this house after-  all, and therefore I cannot sleep here  without the 'permission of my cousin.  But I suppese- ycu can arrange- thai  much for me, at least ?" Ho, appealed  to  the squire,  who  replied :���  "I am suie of it. Virgie would  rot turn a stranger' from her roof, and  1 am confident that when she understands thai vou are so near a relative  she will offer you the hospitality which  is due to you. In fa./i, if 1 know her  oraracler. 1 doubt if she will accept  the property at all, no,w that you have  returned."  "Unci" more," said Burrous,  " I h'bpe  you  will see  that  I   am  speaking  con-  hcieiiirously  when T   remind   you,    Mr.  Lewis, that you have ��;i\vn us no proof  of  your   identity.        Of    course,     your  word   alone   ^as  sufficient   this  morning when we were coming here.,     We  cxpecteci to find  Mr.  Lewis  alive,   and,  it   would   have   been   his   privilege   nr I  satisfy   any   doubt,      But   now,   unde:  the peculiar circumstances,   J, hope yci  don't ini.sconstrr<�� my motives���-"  " Xot   in   the   loar-t."   replied   Lewis.  " You are investigating a  murder, ann  are   right   to   demand ,a   thorough   explanation of my movements ancl proot  of my  identity.     I am   a stranger to  you, and you have but my unsupported  word.     I arn more- glad  than sorry  that I am disinherited by my  fathers  v\ ill.      I   .did   not .deserve any  consideration at his hands anyway.' and  under  the distressing circumstances,. and  considering  my  appearance  just  after  ,his  violent   death,   were  1   bib  heir  it  might seem���you understand '.'   1 might  be  implicated !"  " Nonsense .' Nonsense .'" exclaimed  the squire. '' Xo one would thiiksuch  a thing." The squire's positive assertion' made Burrows feel a.''little uncomfortable, for he was inwardly conscious that h"j was entertaining tlr>  very idea at that .moment. Lewis  continued :  'fcsW*  "BOB and may.  Bob and May -were sweethearts.  Of covsro0 they were; that's what they  had   been  learning  ever since Bob, a  stripling of 20, had come ont from Tennessee Ur the Texas Panhandle with the  ! family.  In those days Ma}- was a bright haired, high strung little girl of 1-1 whom  Bob never called nor thought of as "redheaded."  Boh was a strong, good humored boy,  not a bit afraid of work, and ho  had a  way witli him that gave him command  of men and creatures.   "He rose rapidly  in old man Love's employ from simple  cow puncher to wagon  boss, then foreman, and when  lie was  only 25 went,  with the approval and good will of  his  employer, to take the position of ranch  manager for a Boston company. ,  '   All tho world loves a lover. Boh was  such a whole hearted one, his  state  of  mind  was  so  patent, ho took such delight  in it, woro 1 his chains with sjieh  open pride and enthusiasm, thnt all tho  Panhandle felt with and for him.  And old man LovO' wa^ pleased  enough with tho match and greatly  given to bragging'of Bob as a coming  adjunct to the Love greatness, until thc  tragedy of tho ono horned brindlo cow,  (which tore things all' up generally,  threatened <o sever two loving hearti'  and darken forever Bob's and May's  happy horizon.  '  This old cow���worth perhaps $?���  bobbed up at one of llioronudujin sporting, in addition to tho B'N of tho Boston   ^rational,   whicli  was  facetiously  'Beau" brand, old   man  'Xo, I won't, aiid Unit's Jlat.  you must    not    speak    until vou  a business of putting two and two tol  gether, that's all. You could tell that  it would make four as easily as i could.  But you have your railroad business,  Mr. Skene, and f have to look for  criminals. That is the only difference."' Burrows tried a little conciliatory llattc-ry, and it operated to make  Mr. Skene more communicative.  " By Je-hosar-hat ! You hit it square  that time. I kin smell a rat, but it  ain't my place to- hunt1 him down. So  1 guess I'll tell you who killed Lewis  an' let you ketch him. Only scorns vo  ��� me you oughtn't to git all the glory,  hay ?"  " Y��n give me the clue. Mr. Skene,  and when I arrest the man you shall  have full credit for giving me the  clue."  < " Oh, I'm onlv jokin'. You ketch  the feller an' I'll be satisfied. I ain't  lookin' for no notoriety." c Nevertheless he wore 'a pleased expression, as  when a shrewd New Englander has  just arranged' one of those typical  Yankee " bargains" in which each,  man swaps what he does not want for  what he does want and, chuckles because he lias cheated the other man.  ' Mr. Skene thought , a" moment, as  though deciding where to begin. Then  he resumed, " You noticed that T spid  J could tell  you who killed Lewis ?"  " I did," said Burrows, " and I wondered whether you had sct^n. the crime  committed "  " Seen  it '.'"  cried  Mr.  Skene. " Why,  man   alive,   d'you   s'po.se   J'd   have   let  the   murderer   escape V      No,   1   didn't  'spect hirn  last night,  but I seen hirn,  I seen   him   twice."  "Whom   did   you   sec   twice?"  " Why,   ain't   I   tellin'     vou ?   ��� The  murderer- !      I    seen       the   '   murderer  twice.

"This is important. You say a .man  csmcuc on a train last n.irvh.t, and  at'ked to be directed to the Lewis  jcirm ''."  "That's jest what I said.

" Oh,    that's     diff'rent .'"     said     Mr.  Skene,   quite   satisfied    now,, that   the  picspect of being- a. real witness in a  genuine murder case v.-a.s still in prospect.

Let  you jt*lt on."  CHAPTER Yl.-Continued.  As he sauntered off down the road  toward the ntation Burrows wondered whether he would really koeii the  scory to himself. He doubted it; hut,  as much as he should have liked to  start in pursuit of this strange visitor of the night previous, he scarcely cared to le^.ve before the return of  his suDerior.   r  lie had been standing in the road,  near the main gate, during his conversation with the station-agent, and  now, turning toward the house, he  saw a young woman coming out. He  recognized her as on�� he had supposed was a servant, from the fact  that he had seen her cookins: in the  kitchen while the inciuest was started. He decided to question her, and  as she came out and was passing him  he said : ���  "Pardon me, but I wish to say a  few words to Vru."  The woman faced him in silence and  baited  for  hiirr   to  sneak.  'yyni vou t'-1' me your name ?"  " Sarah."  '��� Your last name also, if vou nlease."  Carpenter."  " Now will vou tell me what vou  know alK>ut what occurred last night,  and whether you heard any pistol  shot ?"  " No,  I won't,  and   that's  llaL"  Before he recovered from his stir-  r-rise at thc asperity of her reply she  abiuptly turned 'from him and provided aJong the road. He looked  after her, wonderii.-gjy. Was it possible that this womin held the key  to the situation ? If g0, it became  most puzzling, from the fact thar. it  did not seem to lit any theory as vst  advanced.     vy<_.i.   her   manner   w;i.'i   not'  He t of one -,\ lit  He   decided    to  about  this  and  tain   her   secret,  went   i;;tr.   iftr_.  was entirely ignorant.  si Lak to Mr. Barnes  leave it to him to obit' she had one.

A.s he  entered  he heard the  squire say: ���  " J suppose, Mr. Lewis, that you  w.'ll sle.'D here to-night, as this  house is now yours '!"  ' It occurred to Burrows- at once that  this was his opportunity -to ,continue  the line of inquiry ..suggested by Mr.  Barnes In his 'note. . Therefore, without waiting for Lewis to rerily, he  said :��� '- '   [ ,  "���Squire, you .say this house is now  the property of this young man. I  hope,.both of you will par-don my asking whether.a' v/ill has been  found."  " I am not at all offended," said  Lewis,, promptly. "That is a very  proper question. . Squire, do you know  anything  about   this '!"���'  "Why, yes! I should have spoken  to you before. I have the will in my  pocket now. It was given into my  keeping by your fa.i.her, soriio time  ago. I do not, however, know its  ccrrtents, except that I am named as  tne of the executors, for he had the  document drawn in Boston and gave  it into my hands in a, sealed envelope.  Here it is, as I received it." He drew  forth a legal-looking envelope of large  pre portions.     "Shall I open it?"  Lewis nodded, and Burrows was too  curious   to  know   its   contents   to   call 1  "As   to. my   identity,   fortunately   I  for.csaw that   the time might someday  come when I   should wish  to  prove  to  ;ny  father-that  I am   indeed'his son.  Therefore   I   have   carefully   preserved  the last three letters which I received,  from   him,   determined,   should   it   ever  he necessary, to produce them as proof  of  my  identity,   in   the event    ot    his  failing    to   recall     my     changed   face.  Now he is dead,  but the evidence thus  attainable  assumes,   it   seems,   an    increased   value.     J  have preserved   the  letters in  my pooket-book through  all  iheso years,   ahel   from   frequent!"reading they are not in a very perfect condition,   though   I   hone 'sufTicientlv. decipherable  for  you  at  least,  squire,   to  recognize   their   g.^nuineness."  t<So saying.' he produced   a. dilapidated   waller   and   took  from   it, thr-e  letters, .apparently quite old.    They were  in   envelopes . that   scarcely   lu-!_x     together,   and   the  edges  nf  the  folds  of  the   letters  were  almost   worn   through  in   plac-vi.      Nevi'rih<- loss   tiie     writiriT  was  suiTi<'i<"iitly  distinct   to  be  legible!  The squ.'n. cmd Burrows looked through"  them,   and   the   former   wnhesitatingiy  declared that he recognized the handwriting as  that   of John   Lewis.      The  contents  were not   especially  interesting,   being  simply    such    as   a  father  would send to a son absent at school.  A detective is naturally suspicious, lie  Is   apt   to   doubt   and   question   to   the  last,   and  though   Burrows  was    com-  raratively    new   he   nevertheless   possessed ��� this   trait   to   a  strong   degree.  He therefore examined the date of the  postmark,    which   was   1ST2.    Although  he could not but accept this as unimpeachable   evidence   that     the     young  man's story  was correct,  still, without  knowing   exactly   why' he   did   so,   l.e  copied   down   the  address   on   the   en-  \ elopes,  whicli  was :���'  "John Lewis, jr. Care T. Jamison.  Esq., Washington Heights, New York  City,   N.Y."  "Mr. Lewis," said the squire. "lam  satisfied that you are niy friend's son,  and I am sorry that this will leavc-s-  you nothing by its provisions! 1 am  sure, as I told you just now, that Yir-  gie will do what is right.' I will see  her   at   once."  He   tapped   gently   on   thc   door    of  Virginia's  room    and     was    admitted.  While   he   was   absent   Burrows   took  the   opportunity   to   ask   Lewis   a   few  .more questions.  "Mr. Lewis," said he, "how long  is it since you were af sea, and why  did you. give up the life ? Thourrh  perhaps you rnta.iv to return to if ?"  "Oh, no. 1 havo had enough of it.

Wriilo they do sometimes result  in tights and killings tliev are easily  , enonsfh adjusted between reasonable  people, since .any clever cattleman can  readily tell which brand is of tho longer standing.  But an}' cowboy on tho iri'ngo would  havo told you that whilo old "man LoAo  was square enough himself ho wa.s a  crazy crank about tho sacredncss of his  brand. His long suit was to jump up  and down and swear that it never yet ,  was on anything that wasn't his own. '  He invariably claimed an animal that j  boro it in addition to another brand 1  (as did this old cow) however plainly it '  showed as the newer of the two.'tliough  as a matter of fact his branding irons  wero handled by just as many careless  c-owhoyst-as any others.  Jf Bob had known what that aged  and damaged brindlo cow was going to  cost him, he might perhaps have blinked  his  obvious  this how and entertaining employer.  Being commanded to (timo along and f  assist in dispersing Boh and rescuing  May, he mounted a serious appearing  but fitful tempered buckskin colored  pony, with ono whito 170 and much  symmetry of bone���as much of a character in its way as Hank was iu his���  and started, with cunshlfrablo interest  and curiosity.  They rode hard and wtre near overhauling tho lovers within a mile of  Roaring creek. But whih pursuer and  puisned pushed on at thcx utmost pace  another factor was eomhir with a hundred times greater speed b tako a hand  in tho game. !  The dry, bod of  Roariig  creek   was  juht   before   them, heyone that a   tiny  rise, then an arroyo, and .beyond   that  again   tho  roof  of tho judico's house,  just in sight.   As Bob hndMay clattered over the creek bed and Icrambled up  onto tho rise beyond, bothlookcd back,  and their ponies stopped.fossing theii  .heads, pricking their ears and snortin;;  at a curious  bumming sound that suddenly seemed to fill all th<|air about.  "Hurry    up,   darling,'j cried  Bob,  thiVwing out a hand to bitch May-Vj;  "it's a big storm coming t|oin above."  But before they could desand tl>o slope  to cross tho dry arroyo in front it was  running from hank to ban! and trimming over with , a snddenflood of red,  muddy water.

A famous corps, says .1 writer in Chums,  is that of the French zouaves, whose picturesque uniform, exrnsistin^ of baggy red  trousers, short, blue braided jacket, gaiters and close fitting cap (a sorb of fez) has  been seen in many great battles. The  zouaves gained their richest laurels during  the" Crimean war, at-which timo the corps,  although supposed only to consist o(  Frenchmen, had attracted to its ranke  many young men of other nations���English, Scotch, Irish, Germans and Italians.  Many of these, no doubt, wero soldiers of  fortune, anxious to servo in a body the  fame of which was worldwide.  But Franco was not to enjoy the monopoly of a zouave corps, for some ten years  later, when the Amcucan civil war broke  out, two bodies of American zouaves were  formed, one by tho Federals, the other by  the Confederates. They were uniformed  much,after tho Frond style and gained a  great reputation for dash and courage.  This was particularly the case with the  Confederate zouaves, yho were known aa  tho Louisiana Tigers.  When tho French zouaves were serving  in Africa, they had ore day to perform a  long and terrible mardi in the blistering  sun. Tho chasseurs a pied, a corps of famous marchers, were vith them, but tho  soldiers of both corps tvero ready to sink  with hunger, thirst ani exhaustion. Toward evening they arrived at a town, and  tho,colonel of the chasseurs appealed to  his men tq enter the placo iu a stylo  worthy of French soldbrs. '  Tho men responded bravely, and with  'bugles sounding the.v Marched in with a  light';" springy step, linking as little as  possiblo like Mien who vcro half dead with  fatigue This was 100 much for tho  zouaves . They Irnel si.fl'ered, if possible,  worse than thc chasseurs, but at tho command of their colonel ,hcy braced fche'.m-  selvi'S ti]} and, although ready to drop, entered the town on tho run, swinging their  muskets round their iVads, that being an  evolution of the z/niavj drill. They had  "gone ono better" thai, -iie chasseurs.  JPIX*  Phraueolojcr.  "Do you think Russia and Great  =Britain will disarm?" asked the Anglo-  Saxon caller.

Canada   lias   at    least    two    men  in tiie dominion parliament who  cannot ho pureuaded or purchased by the  Canadian  Pacific  Railway   company:  They are Hon'.   Hewitt   Bastook  and  Hon.. A.   O.   Blair.    Both   men   have  declared their policy  of dealing  with  "Canada's  Nulional    Highway"    and  their   assertions are ' cloareut.   unmistakable and   admirable.    They   speak  emphatieuily,,and their, orders will' lie  obeyed, because the}- are supported by  the law and public sentiment. ���  Mr. Blair, tlio   minister of  railways,  has defended,tho right of parliament  to attach any condition' it saw fit to a  bill ���afl'ecling  this  railway.    Fie said  that it was his   duty   to   protect  the  people.     That   parliament   had / the"  .power to say where stations   should be  located.    In speaking of the matter of  the discrimination of tbe C.  P.   R.   us  against Moyie,   he  said   that   he  bad  not   yet   sanctioned   tlie   station    at  Moyelle.    That if what was stated was  true/there should be, and   there   must]  be, a station at Moyie.  Mr. Blair can easily become convinced that what was stated was true.  There can" be no misinterpreting his  words "There should be, and there  Must be c a station at Moyie." We  firmly believe Mr. Blair will' stick to  his word.  Mr. Bostock has also' done yeoman  service for his constituency ' in regard  lo the C. 17. R. townsites, and as a   re-  ,'''Blarrie. those  mosquitoes J"   I    exclaimed aloud, in a bumst of indignation; whereupon rny guide and servant1.,  Mat,   a cheery and intelligent Malay,  ejaculated     a    confirmatory    "Tuan"  (which means  "master,"  but is frequently used as an affirmative, in conversation by the Malays, aa if he thought  he ought to agree, although, as a son  of the country, the exasperating little  insects had not the power to persecute  hiiri as they did me.  I had taken a. few daj-s' leave after  some'weeks of hard  work,   and had  started on a journey of discovery across  EQnie unknown jungle country, hoping  to bag some game en route and fetch up  at a friend's bungalow, who was district officer in the state adjoining my  own.    We   hadr trudged fair, and had  made a fair  bag consisting of some  snipe, wild pigeon, and jungle fowl.  In  traversmg the paths through which at  times we, had been obliged to cut our  way, we had seen trades of deer"and  bigger game, but the undergrowth was  too dense fo follow them.   And now we  hnd spread our mattresses and sot up  , our curtains, intending to settle down  to rest for though t.  I wa�� so tired that  T should have.

I have jslumbered through a. heavy thunderstorm hnd an earthquake, and even  the frantic yells of a wakeful infant  have failed to disturb me when once I  was, safely in the airms of Morpheus:  but the ping of a, persistent proboscis-  armed monster bas a peculiarly routing effect upon   my nerves, and   insomnia reigns supreme.  After a short wrestle with the two-invaders of my privacy and a vain attempt  .sat outride -talking to different neighbors who looked in^ind "Tijah crept  away to her room, meaning to lie and  watch   until   Sleiman  joined her, but  wearied wit.h the alarm, and anxiety of  the previous night, she fell asleep.  ���   '"She awoke with a sudden sense of  terror knocking at ber heart.   By the  light of the moon   which   penetrated  through a. small window ni the liui, she  saw Sleiman extended try her side; for  a short space of time she heard nothing  but the noise of his loud snores, when  suddenly a. sort of shuffling sound inside the room struck her as something  strange.    It seemed as though some animal was crawling along the floor, and  as she looked with trembling   expectancy  toward   the direction whence it  came,   the face  of Tong slowly rose  beside Sleiman from the other side of  the low bed on which she lay.    She held  her breath,' hardly daring i-o keep her  eyes fixed on him lest the intensity of  her gaze should drawTong's attention  to herself.   A flash of somel king bright,  a long-drawn groan, a short struggle,  and then a pillow flung over the mouth  which was still capable of crying out  for help, and brawny muscular arms,  pressing it firmly down till the convulsive heaving ceased, and all'Nvas still as  death.   r'Tijah closed her   eyes, with  one deep shuddering sigh and fainted, j  When'she regained,  ber   senses,   she]  feared to move or look at first, dreading  what ghastly sight would meet   her.  She put out her. hand and felt   about  cautiously.   The dead form of Sleiman  was still beside her; the pillow rested  over the face; in tho room no sound,  rbux; billow'a stealthy passing to   and  ftro���Tong  and his wife preparing to  get rid of the body.  " 'Tijah paused, thinking what to do:  then she rose slowly and crept outside.  The door,of the house was open, and  Tong had evidently just gone out. She  caught up a sarong (skirt) which lay  'Murder will cut.* I f<>a! a. special interest in Katijah since you have told  me hor roraa ntic h Mory.

Bull of his   representations  it  is   now  proposed  that   the   government, and  ���not the railway company, shall fix the  station sites.    This' willbe a  boon   to  the country in stopping   the  booming  of rotton railway'towusiles to the  dis,-'  advantage of those already established.  Both men are deserving of congatu-  hition.    It is plain   that   their  course  "Will be vigorous and that none of ,the  Underhanded schemes of  the   railway  companies to hold   up the people  of  the west will be tolerated.  every creature on God's earth was crer-  ate'd' for some good and useful purpose.

Mat crawled from-under  his curtain and approached quite' near  to where I luy; then squatting on his J  haunches, ii& Said, solemnly, in his na- !  five tongue: ' J  "C have heard 'that question before,  Now that it is a certainty   that   the  eight hour law   is   to   be   enforced   on  tbe twelfth of June, the  mine owners  of 'the  Slocan   are  formulating   new  scales pf wages 'io  conform  with   the  deduction   in  hours.    The   owners of  the principal mines in the Nekson and  Slocan districts have   issued   circulars  explaining     their    situations.      They  have almost unanimously agreed   that  ihe standard rate of-nvages to  be   paid  by them will   be $3  a  day for   eight  hours.

And this is the tide, that he' told me.  I had often seen, the heroine of it (his  wife) passing i-d and fro across the back  premises attached to my residence. She  was a pretty young Malay woman,  aged about. 20 years, with a particularly bright and pleasing-manner.  ''Tuan kh'o'wis niy wife, Katijah; she  was a, widow wlicii I married her. When  we were quite- wmali^ we lived in the  same village iiktr Malacca, and we  played together; arid I was very fond of  her. Then we grew tip; and I went to  be a servant id ii European, and her  father married Her wlien she was 14 to  a rich man, who' was a cattle dealer and  had plenty of money. Se was old, perhaps 40 years of age. 'Tijah could not  care for him. lie took her away to a  place on the coast, where he lived with  his brother and sister-in-law, and I did  not see her again for many clays and  weeks. Tier husband, Sleiman, used to  go away very often to Singapore on  business, and every now and then came  back home to 'Tijah, bringing the re-;  suits of his sales' with him.  ��� "At last one day, wiien he had been  abseni or a^|l'f, three weeks, 'Tijali  knew he wonja^on; come again.

A lonsr  way she rowed, .and the next day when  the sun got up and scorched her, she  pulled in her paddle and rolled herself  n her sarong and lay down in the hot-'  orpe s  earning power of the   men   emplove'd, I "J 'J''1*1    VAAl    him:     Well,   sho   was  ' sitting   idly  on   Ll:<-  seashore,   behind  some    rocks,    looking    over   the    sea  and to interfere with tlie free righl   of  contract hitherto enjoyed.''

She   was  I aroused by the movement of her cockle  shell.   It  was' night;   a - breeze    had  sprung up and a squall was   coming;  white crests tipped, the'waves and   a  heavy bank of clouds obscured'the star-  .light, and iu a few moments a. black  pall   of  darkness enveloped, her.    The  wind struck tho fragile craft, whirling  it wildly round, and Before she coulil  seize thc paddle to try and steady it. .tlie  boat capsized, and she wax flung into  the angry sea.    She struck out lioldly  and swam until iter hands touched the  upturned bnrk, to which she clung, endeavoring to right it.    Poor girl!  she  knew not where she was, how far from  shore, how long her strength   would  last, and whether there wasa-nyhopeof  succor.  At last the squall passed over and the  water became comparatively calm, but  the moon had riot risfebh and she. could  see. nothing. She beg'an to get exhausted and felt that she could not hold on  much longer and would sink and drown  unless Tuan. Allah took pity on her.  She thought sadly tiia.t she was young  to die, and prayed for help. A small  thing as lignt as a feather touched her  cheek���a mosquito.- sent to save her  life. Wlien she heard the sound which  Tuan cursed just now she knew that  land must be quite near, for a'mosquito  never flies out to sea. She let go her  anchorage, and, making one more effort, swain bravely on, and very soon  her feet touched tho beach.  "Meanwhile those cruel murderers  had finished their work, nnd before, daylight dawned had pot rid of every trace  of their ill doing.
