C, Sept 27.���At a meeting of the members of the local  miners' union held in their hall this  afternoon, it was decided to remain  out on strike until the coal company  guaranteed to give them their old  places again, and until the company  agreed to their demands respecting  th-vsigning of the books and tho check  off.  The following, taken from the Fernie'Ledger seems to be a fair and un-  baised statement of tbe situation:"  - "Once more the minors, the Coal  Company and the people of the city  and viciuity who are materially inter  ested in tbe continuation of work in  the mines, taut branch of industry  being the chidf one of the district, are  face fo face with a suspension of ope rations, owing to a disagreement between  employer and employee .  "Divested of all verbal garniture,  the whole matter is summed up in the  one fact that the union men in the  Coal Creekmiues are demanding that  the non-union men shall pay their  share of the expenses of keeping up  the uniou, because the non-union men  receiye the same banefits of union organization as do the union men, who  pay all the expenses of keopiug up  their fight-for their rights.  ���The non-union man sets up the  claim against this argument that he  has tbe right to work when and where  he can, and at whatover wages he  may please to work for' or be able to  get. Theoretically this'is correct, but  in practice the non-union man has  always and is now benefitting by the'  results brought about by organized  bbor, both as to conditions and as to  wages, and the union man claims that  as he enpys theseimproved conditions  the same ae does'the union man, the  non-union man is morally bound to  contribute his share towards the expense of such organization."

It seems that last Saturday  night while Morrison and Seoit were  working in one of the lower levels of  the St. Eugene mine they became involved in a quarrel, and some hot  words passed between them. When  they came up out of tlie shaft for lunch  the trouble was renewed, and, according to the testimony of the wittnesset-,  Morrison rushed out of the darkness  at Scott and struck him .in tho face  and knocked, him down aud kicked  him. The supposition is that Morrison had a rock or some blunt instrument in hia hand, for Suott received a  terrible blow on the nose and will  probably be disfigured for life. The  J.

CLAY  Author of "A Woman's Vengeance," "Which Loved Him  Best," "Between Two lioves," "Fairy Gold," Etc,  -flMltelMIHlKllil*^^  (Continued.)  CHAPTER VI.  The road that loads to "Fontaine de  Virglnle" ascends rapidly between  tho liigh walls of vast estates, through  the gates of which cam be seen well  kept gardens, chateaux, villas, and  prosperous farms. Half way up the  hillock '.is-a path in which carriages  seldom venture; it is very solitary  anil silent place, where even the barking of a dog awakens strange echoes.  Soon the forest becomes thicker, the  ' sea is lost to sight, and nothing is  heard but the abrupt flight of tho  startled bird or the rustling of leaves  in the soft summer breeze. Then, suddenly, a rustic bridge is reached, and  on the other side of the stream is a  clearing, devoid of underbrush, and  shaded by enormous beech-trees. In  tho very middle, almost at the foot  of the oldest and most venerable tree,  spurts a spring of clear cool water  that forms into a crystal pond before  running into the brook. A prettier  spot for love, happiness and gaiety,  could not be found; it is the domain  of Queen Mab, of TItania and Oberon.  To please her sister, Marthe had  organized a picnic in this charming  spot, and had redoubled in kindness  and affection- to make her forget her  contradiction concerning the comedy.  Edmee was not angry, oh, no! But,  now and then, a light cloud on the  young face, an almost imperceptible  -sigh, showed that this little creature,  was thinking of things she could not  speak of. For the first time the caprices were not law. She was astonished, hurt even, but she never-  thelesss forgave. Marthe was so  good, . and she could not be expected to vise above the "prejudices"  of her castle. Edmee, in her mother's  world, had been taught to scorn these  "prejudices" and, as her ideas were  Btill crude and confused, she classed  many things under that category. She  often shocked Aunt Relie by the excessive indulgence she entertained  for certain liberties of speech and  conduct; but in Marthe's presence she  instinctively concealed her imperfect  knowledge of the world, feeling that  her elder sister was more of a "society woman," in the- true sense of  the-word, than she was herself.  Most of the "guests at Mme. d'An-  cel's dinner were at the picnic. Many  young girls accompanied by their  mothers; among these, two gay and  somewhat giddy American girls who  had-rented an old manor near Cote-  Boisee and for whom Edmee professed a great friendship.  The life of the party was Captain  Bertrand who hiul come at full gallop  from Trouville. ,As ho nearod the rus-  horse shied. Feeling that all 'eves  were upon him, the officer forced his  roaring steed across the bridge several times, lashing and spurring him  pitilessly, until the poor beast almost  fell.  "Spare the poor boast, spare him,  I beg of you!" cried Marthe, indignantly; "believe me, the spectable is  anything but an agreeable one, and  you have sufficiently proved your  horsemanship."  "I am at your orders, Mademoiselle," he replied, gallantly. "But if  you had command of a regiment, or  the breaking in of a horse, you would  be obliged to harden your tender  heart."  "I can, nevertheless, command  obedience when occasion .'.requires"  she said, simply. '  "I am the pi oof-of that," retorted  the-^handsome captain, bowing with  an.ironical smile.  And he immediately began to make  himself useful, offering his services  to all, laughing gaily, and bustling  _abouJ^Edmee . gazed_j.t_ him with evident satisfaction. Tlmt_day7fhl^quTlF  brium she so skillfully maintained  among her admirers���and all the  young men she met were naturally  classed under this category���was a  little disturbed in favor of the younsr'  officer. .  The latter, moreover, made no attempt to conceal his admiration; he  boldly, almost brutally devoured her  with his eyes. She wore a simple  light blue cambric dross, that became  her blonde beauty wonderfully. She  made a great pretense of being busy  rolling her-sleeves-to-the elbow, and  pinning her skirts just high enough  to display the daintiest little foot  Imaginable, while the other young  girls opened enormous baskets sent  on before.  Edmee offered to fill the water-  bottles at the spring, Captain Bertrand agreeing to carry them back  when ouce filled. To do this, she must  stand on the stones placed there tb  facilitate tho approach, and lean over  How could she refuse the willing  hand stretched to assist her? In fact  sho had no choice. And how: pretty  she looked, half kneeling, holding  tho bottle in her right hand, while  the captain firmly clasped the other.  He bent over also and, for an instant,  the limpid water reflected the two  faces together.  "See,' Mademoiselle Edmee," he  whispered, trembling with emotion,  "tho spring unites us, it is the divinity of the place, and the will of the  gods "Is sacred."  "It.is nothing but water," laughed  Edmee, not in the least shocked, "and  poets say that the billows are perfidious."  "Let me. tell you that I adore you!"  said,the young man, earnestly; "you  are driving me mad'. I have loved you  since the very first day I saw you���"  "What, in that horrid railway compartment?" interrupted Edmee. "The  shrill whistles, the five-minute stops,  and the dirty, ill-smelling smoke, are  not poetic accessaries, you must admit."  "You are laughing at me! But I  shall go on repeating that I adore you  until you are forced to believe it."  "But.I do believe it."  "Ah! and it displeases you."  "Not at all. It amuses me."  The young officer gave such a start  that Edmee almost lost her equilibrium and this equilibrium was of  more moment to her tbaa even the  other.  "Be careful!" she cried. "The bottle was nearly full, now. I shall have  to start over again."  "So much the better���"  "Edmee!" called her sister, "be  careful or you shall take a disagreeable bath. Besides, you must hurry,  we are v-allim? tr> 'jfuWn "  ���'I am coming! This is my last bottle."  "Will you allow mo to spcii1; lo you  ir private after hi-onl-fiir.!. where no  ono can disturb us?" asked the lover.  Edmee made no reply, but gave him  a smile and a glance that fully satisfied the gallant captain.  This little scone, which scarcely  lasted five minutes, had been observed by other eyes as vigilant as thoso  of the elder sister. While assisting  Jessie Robinson in unpacking a monstrous ham and a delicious pate,  Robert had watched the captain's attitude and Edmee's coquetries.  ' "Do you know, Monsieur d'Ancel,  that you are answering me at random?" said Jessie. "I asked you  where we should put the pate, and  you replied, 'In the water.'"  "I thought you spoke of the champagne, Mademoiselle." '   '  "You see very well���"  "That you have turned my head."  "I? Oh, no, it is not I."  And the American girl glanced mischievously at Edmee, who was returning from the spring with a bottle in  her hand, while Robert flushed furiously, angry with himself for his  weakness.  Then they believed him in love  with Edmee?���He?���Why, he was engaged, or as good as engaged, to  Martlw. Once more, he regretted that  the engagement should have beon  kept a secret. He was on the point of  telling all on the spot, .but he dared  not. Marthe desired her liberty for  herself as well as for him; and, in  fact, that calm personage seemed far  from being either in love or jealous.  No doubt, she would soon inform him,  in the cold, gentle voice of hers, that  she was, free, that she could never be  his wife. At this thought, he was filled with a violent emotion, an emotion that strongly resembled joy. Yet,  he had desired this marriage, and,  without feeling a veritable passion  for his childhood friend, he had felt  attracted toward her, had done full  justice to the qualities of her heart  and mind. Then?���  But he dismissed tho subject; he  would be happy for a few hours, If it  was possible.   -  The captain had found a place for  Edmee opposite her sister, but Robert  was ever watchful.  "Mademoiselle Edmee," he said,  "Marthe has reserved one end of her  throne for you. Come, you will form  an adorable group together, and we  shall be your subjects." Edmee arose  at once. A throne, whether made of  the roots of a tree, or of gilded wood  and velvet, was hers by right. With  a merry laugh, she glided among the  groups, leaped lightly over an enormous basket, and landed beside her  sister.    Throwing   one   arm   around  uiaiuucS   Wills'-.,   Sills  uciiuM,   ���i i���.   ....  her side. Sho instinctively knew that  she never appeared to better advantage than when her laughing, mischievous face rested against the regular but pale and serious features of  the young chatelaine. Edmee was always more prodigal with her caresses  in the presence of witnesses, and beside her Martho seemed almost cold,  reserving her caresses for the privacy  of their home.  When Robert arose to get the champagne, which was on ice at some distance from the table, the captain followed him, and said, angrily:  "You offered hev that seat beside  her sister to lake her away form me!"  "It,, is quite possible," replied Robert, calmly. "Here, take this bottle, I  shall take charge'of the rest."  "You take charge of a great many  things, even of some-that do not concern you. You- are jealous of me, furiously jealous!"   ���'���..'."���  "See here, my friend, this is no'  place to make .a scene; wo are observed.

Mile.'Levasseur.  is almost a child and does not realize  how much you compromise her."  "And you intend to warn her?"  "Yes/herself or her sister."  "We shall'see about it."  They said no more, for the discussion was,.attracting attention.  "You must be preparing a duel,"  laughed Jessie Robinson, little guessing how near the truth she was.  "You have guessed it," replied Bertrand. "It is to be a champagne duel.  Robert pretends that his head is more  solid than mine. The wagers are  even!'' ���  From that moment, the champagne  seemed to produce its effect beforehand on the young officer; his contagious gaiety soon won the rest, with  the exception of Marthe, who could  not overcome a sense of uneasiness.  After breakfast, which was prolonged as much as possible, there was  some discussion as to what should he  done." The indefatigable American  girls proposed games, but It was decidedly too warm. The greater number sat in the shade of the tall trees,  while a few of the young girls, among  whom was Edmee, wandered off In  search of flowers and ferns. Robert  overcome by remorse, seated himself  beside his fiancee, conversing tenderly and affectionately, and poor Marthe was happy for a moment, believing he was returning to her, that the  momentary fascination had passed  away. Suddenly she saw him start.  -"What is it?" she asked.  "Do you see your sister over there  with the rest of the young girls?  Your eyes are better than mine."  "No, she is not Chere."  "And Bertrand has disappeared,  too. I should have suspected it."  "Why? What has happened?" cried  Marthe, anxiously.  "Marthe, It is all my fault I introduced Bertrand, because he is an old  friend, and I could not help it; but I  should have warned you. He is a  violent, unscrupuoous fellow, and not  at all a suitable husband for your sister."  "Oh, Edmee has no intention of becoming his wife, I assure you. She has  carefully weighed the pros and cons,  for, in spite of her giddy manners,  she has a singularly well developed  practical sense of life. She will only  marry advantageously. The captain is  only a military man, not wealthy, and  tlie name is aol .hiub sounding enough  to tempt her.-'  "But he compromises her. I am  sure her friends over there know she  has given him a rendezvous, and are  gossiping about her."  "Let us go together," said Marthe,  rising; "it will look more natural  than if you went alone. They can not  be far."  They   walked   on   in   silence,   for  j Marthe could not help thinking that  Robert cliowed more    irritation    and  nervousness than the occasion seemed to warrant.  While gathering flowers and ferns  for all, Bertrand had gradually enticed Edmee from tho rest under pretext of finding late violent. The forest was very thick and shady at this  point, and tho brook flowed with delicious coolness.  "Hut whore are your violets?" she  asked.  "Kni'ther on. where thoy alone will  hoar us," he replied.  "Then you have l;i!d a trap for me?"  said Edmee, smiling and thoroughly  composed.  "No, It Is tho rendezvous you have  granted inc."  "1 have (-ranted you nothing, .Captain."  "You think not?���Then vour eyes  have lied, that is all."  "What did niy eyes tell you?"  "That you wero willing to listen to  me, that you knew J was foolishly in  love with you, and that you were  ready to share that folly���"  "Then they surely lied, I assuro  you, Captain, that I will never commit any follv, that I am a very sensible littlo girl���"_  "If you are a'scnsibla littlo girl,  then you are aware that the best  thing you can do is to get married as  soon as possible."  A cloud gathered on the girl's  brow.  "Why, I am only eighteen."  "Why? I shall tell you why. Because  you will not be happy long with your  sister. Just now she plays the little  mamma to perfection; you are a new  doll of which she is very fond, but  it will not last. You come from two  worlds, not only different, but hostile.  When you proposed a comedy the  other day, Mile. Levasseur feared you  would play it too well, show that you  were your mother's daughter."  Edmee broke a branch with a snap  and angrily plucked the leaves, but  she remained silent.  "It is not much," went on the captain, "but straws indicate which way  the wind blows. Your sister spends  eight or nine, months of the year in  tlie country, and you can not expect  that-she will make a change in her  habits to please you, to take you-out  into the world where you would be  welcomed as queen while she would  be neglected."  "You are pleading your own cause,"  observed the girl with a shade of sarcasm.  "Yes, for I love you. You must, he  my wife, mine forever. There is  nothing I would not do to win you;  if-necessary, I would tear you by force  from this world so ill-suited to  -���you���"  "And from Robert d'Ancel," laughed Edmee.  "Ah! you know that he loves you  too���and it amuses you, just as' my  love amuses you- Beware, Edmee, I  swear-that, I v.^uld kill you rather  than see you the wife of another."  "Dramas are out of date, remember."  ��� "On the stace "rather than in life.  Never lias passion been tlie cause ot  more crimes than in our days���and I  would not shrink from crime."  Until this moment, Edmee had retained that disdainful calm of the  Parisian girl, little inclined to the  sentimental and braye withal.- But  she now began to fear this importunate lover, wondering if the numerous glasses of champagne he had  drank at breakfast were not the cause  of his exaltation. She thought him  simply frightful with his blood-shot  eyes, his panting brsath and flushed  face; she no longer recognized her  handsome captain in this excited  man.  "Monsieur Bertrand," she said, in a  dignified tone, "will you have the  kindness to take me back to my  friends? You wore wrong in enticing  me so far away, and I was wrong in  following you, but I never for an instant doubted that you were .a man  of honor."  "Give me a little hope, Edmee," he  pleaded.

To the average visitor at the well  known stockyards in Brighton, Mass.,  the chief object of interest is the large  stock barn. The large rows of stalls  provide accommodations for hundreds  of cattle, and the room is about all  needed during the busy seasons of the  year. On Tuesflay and Wednesday'of  each week this barn Is the scene of  great activity, says American Cultivator. The cattle arrive by train from all  parts of New England and New York  state. They are brought in mostly by  traders who make a business of buying  from farmers or at auctions and sell  In. Brighton. Any one, however, is allowed to use the barn and sell his own  cattle if he Wishes to do so. Some who  live near by drive in their own cows  and sell them direct, thus saving the  middleman's profit, although their own  lack of trading experience may often  offset the apparent gain.  No dealer likes to carry over cows  from weel- to week. The rent of the  stalls is for the market days only and  Includes feed for that period, and also  the cow, if kept over, is a week further  along In milking.  This consideration is the cause and  encouragement of the "sundowner."  The term is applied to the shrewd traders who stay away while buying is active and appear at the last moment and  pick up bargains just as dealers are beginning to tear they must keep over  some of their cows. The "sundowner"  drops in late Wednesday afternoon and  often buys cows at low prices. He is  usually a country resident and trader  and takes his purchases out home to  Bell them at a profit. The cows left  over to the last are not the. most desirable a3 a rule: Once in awhile at a  dull market a few good cows will b.  left over to the last, and then real bar  ypiriq are to ha fnnnd  The Fly.

How They May Be Built Up By Almost  Any Good Fancier.  Rev. E. T. Dailey of Huntsville, O.,  writing to the American Poultry Journal, says:  Pew flocks, as a whole, pay a decent  profit. It is estimated that but about  40 per cent, in most cases pay an actual  profit. The other GO per cent, barely  pay their expenses or fall far- below.  This Is due to the fact that only a few  hens in the flock are layers. Tbe rest  aro most of them drones. To make a  paying stntln and a paying business  get rid of the drones and use as breeders only the hustling hard workers.  You can do this only by some system by which you can ascertain just  which heu lays and just how well she  lays. Some form of a trap nest system  will be most serviceable unless you  can give your whole attention to watching the hens and keeping a record of  each hen, as everything depends on tbe  record.  Follow up a method of selection,from  year to year, using only as breeders  the pullets hatched from eggs from the  best layers of the previous year. "Use  only males from the highest egB record  hen ln the flock, remembering that the  male Is one-half of your flock so far as  building up the utility qualities are  concerned. If this system of breeding  Is carefully followed a very profitable  laying strain can be built up in a very  short time. The great record strains  of the country have been built up just  this way, and not because they were  naturally any better than what you  have  As an example of this system we  want to cite a report of the Maine  agricultural experiment station. In  1898 they began with 140 pullets and  52 trap nests. They began Nov. 1. In  one year from date the record showed  that the 140 birds had averaged 120  eggs. Twenty-four laid over 1C0 eggs,  twenty-two fewer than 100 eggs. Pullet No. 36 laid 201, No. 101 laid 204,  No. 286 laid 20G eggs. In the following  year for special breeding purposes only  females having a record from 160 to  200 eggs were used, and No. 101 and  No. 2S6 were.mated with a finely bred  cockerel, from which mating cockerels  were-selected for fwUire breeding.  The result of the year 1S99 mating  showed pullets making a record from  208 to 237 eggs. This method was followed until in the year 1902 a record  was reached of 240 eggs, and in 1903  they made an average of 150 eggs each  for the whole flock tested. Thus in five  years an increase of thirty egg3 per  ban -sua raiwlud  They   Descend   Upon   Orchardis   With  DevadtntliiK Fury.  The big oriental fruit bats, or flying  foxes, so familiar in India, Ceylon and  tbe Malayan region, feed on all sorts  of soft fruits except acid ones, such as  oranges; are especially fond of figs  and guavas and are a destructive pest  lo orchards and gardens. In some  parts of Java, for example, no delicate  fruit can be raised except by protecting the trees with nets and fighting  off the nightly ��� forays of bands of  kalongs.  They live and travel in vast companies, roosting by day on chosen trees,  where they hang by one hind'leg, each  protected from -the sun's glare aud  from rain in tbe closely wrapped mantle of its wings.'and large branches frequently break under the weight. At  "sunset they fly away to their feeding  grounds, scattering over a wide area.  "Where n fig tree or banana thicket  attracts a crowd the roughest fighting  begins over coveted plunder, each one  screaming, clawing, biting and struggling'to seize somethiug and got away  to a secure retreat to enjoy-It. Tliere  he hangs by one foot, aud, grasping the  fruit he has secured in the claws and  opposable thumb of the other, he hastily reduces it to lumps, with which he  stuffs bis cheek pouches uutil they become distended like those of a monkey.  Later"he chews and swallows this food  at leisure..  At dawn all return to their roosts  and, says Tickell, ''hook themselves  along tbe branches, scrambling about  hand oyer band with some speed, biting each other severely, striking out  with the long claws of the- thumb,  shrieking and cackling without intermission."  No doubt these squabbles are rendered more violent by the disgracefully dissipated habits In - which the  bats indulge during their nocturnal  expeditions, for, according to Francis Day and other observers," "they  often pass the night drinking the toddy from the chatties iu the cocoanut  trees, which results either in their returning home in the early morning in  a state of extreme and riotous intoxication or in being found tbe next day  at tbe foot of tbe trees, sleeping off  the effects of their midnight debauch."  ���Ernest   Ingersoll's   "Life   of "Maui-  mcla "t  SOME FIRST OCCASIONS.

BROWN SHELLED EGGS.  Experiences as a. Rebel In Ireland and  a Citizen of United States.  An address of rare feeling and eloquence was delivered'before the Toronto Empire Club by Dr. J. K. Foran of  Ottawa on "Thomas D'Arcy McGee as  Empire-Builder." He might, the speaker said, speak of him as a historian,  an orator or a poet, but those were  mere accidents in the life of a man, the  ripples on the surface of his life-stream,  that added plcturesqueness perhaps and  covered to a certain -degree the deep,  broad current underneath of prophetic  statesmanship. Dr. Foran . said he  would only undertake to lift a corner  of the curtain which covered that other  phase of his life. McGee was a mah  who had changed from one who was  opposed to constitutional authority to  a stout upholder of it. McGee's early  life and the companionship' of Duffy,  Davis and O'Brien and others in,the  days when they were counted as rebels  in Ireland was followed t>y,_ his arrival  years later in Canada, where he. found  a field for his talents, and.joinedln the  work of confederation. In 1S63, lecturing in Toronto, he said: 'How does  it come that a man who spent his  youth ln fighting that Government  should to-day be the strongest advocate  of British constitutional rule in this  Dominion. My answer is this;. Were my  country governed a.t the time as Canada is to-day, I would have <been the  strongest conservative constitutional  advocate ln Great Britain."  Having spent some; years in the  United States, McGee could compare  theirs with the British constitution. He  "believed the former lacked stability, and  said that Canada wanted something  that was time-defying and liberty-imparting, possessed of stability, and that  could be found alone in the British constitution.  McGee believed that nothing better  could be adopted for Canada than the  British constitution, but he succeeded  Anally ln persuading many of his opponents that that was the only system  'whereby this. country could be raised  and made the polished-buckle In the belt  of empire that engirdled the world. We  were yet too near him to truly appreciate his proportions; 'but he believed  the historian of the future would ba  able to assign to him his proper place  ln the Valhalla of Canadian statesmanship. His prophecy that before 1925 the  Canadian west would be girdled with/  railways, and'that the Dominion would  have 20,000,000 people, was in a lair  -way to be fKlfllled.  The 3reeds Which Produce Them and  Breeds Which Do Not.  We notice In one of our exchanges,  says the Feather, tbe request for information as to which breeds produce  the brown shelled eggs and if there Is  any feed or manner of feeding that will  influence the color of the eggshells.  The color of eggshells is a natural  characteristic of the-breeds. Every  breed "or variety that contains any of  the Asiatic blood���the blood of the  Brahma, the .Cochin or the Larigshan���  produces the brown shelled eggs. The  influence of the Asiatic blood on the  Plymouth Rocks, the Wyandottes and  the Orpingtons as well gives the tinge  of color to the shell. Even the small  portion of'"this contained in the" Fa-  verolle has tinted the shell of this originally French fowl. It Is the Influence  of the Asiatic blood that gives the  tinge of cream color to the shell.  -On the other hand, the Etlropean  fowls, the Houdans, the Dorkings, Polish, Hamburgs, and all Mediterranean  fowls produce eggs having white shells,  Even some of the Dorkings have a  tinge of yellow in the shell, said' to  be Influenced by some Asiatls blood  introduced many years ago to enlarge  the size of the colored varieties.  Some strains of Brown Leghorns  have a tinge of yellow in the sheil.  This was caused by crossing the game  fowls with the Brown Leghorns to enhance the color, a strain "containing  some of the Malay blood having been  used to cast a tint upon the shell.  "~The tint ofthe eggshell ranges from  the very dark, almost brown, color of  strains of Langshans to the perceptibly lighter tinge of the Brahma, next  the Cochin a little lighter, until we  have the chalky white surface of the  Hamburg and the Polish eggs. In this  connection it might well he stated that  the careful breeding of the Hamburgs  and the-Polish has reduced their egg  production to the very finest certainty,  nearly all of them being of regular  size, true in form, smooth in surface  and of a chalky while color. Every  breed and variety might be bred- and  trained to this regularity, of ,egg production. All cross breeding has a  tendency to destroy this.regularity of  shape and color.  ' Red Pyle Leghorn.

C, of Vancouver,  addressed the Winnipeg Canadian Cltfb  on the duty of Canada to Wolfe's grave  recently, and pleaded for a national  acknowledgment of the achievements ->f  tllfe hero of Quebec. Concluding his address Mr. Wade said: "In contemplating the grave of Wolfe at the old parish church of St. Alphage In" Greenwich  one cannot  but recall his marvellous  ��� bravery and brilliant generalship that  planned the attack at the Anse du Fou-  lon, which led to the capture of Quebec  and the cession of this continent to the  - Anglo-Saxon race. The first Impulse is  to look around for some "great monument, some vast mausoleum, or, in default of that, some memorial window,  -brass or mural tablet, some indication  of the love and sympathy or at the  least some sign of gratitude on the part  of the Canadian people. ,' But' there Is  nothing. The dark, mysterious .'crypt  Is there, as is the iron grating which  is pointed to as indicating the exact  position of the tomb. " These are cold  and forbidding enough, but that is all.

Do not the people of Canada owe it to themselves, as well as to  the memory of the great Wolfe, to take  some action which will fittingly express  their appreciation of the heroism of the  ��� Illustrious peer to -whom this continent  owes so "much?",  The Club, after hearing the address,  appointed a committee to set wheels in  motion towards concerted action by  all sister clubs in erecting a suitable  monument.

Explanation of tlie Principles of tbe  Campbell  System.  : What western people have become  accustomed to call the "Campbell system of dry farming" consists simply In  the exercise of intelligence, care, patience and tireless industry. It differs  in detail from the good farming methods practiced aud taught at the various  agricultural experiment stations, but  the underlying principles are the same.  These principles are two In number:  First, to keep tbe surface of the land  under cultivation loose and finely pulverized. This forms a soil mulch tbat  permits the rains and melting snows to  percolate readily through to the compacted soil beneath and that at tbe  same time prevents the moisture stored  in the ground from being brought to  the surface by capillary attraction, to  be absorbed by tbe hot, dry air. Tbe  second Is to keep the subsoil finely pulverized and firmly compacted, Increasing its water holding capacity and its  capillary attraction nnd placing it ia  the best possible physical condition for  the germination of seed and the development of plant roots. The dry farmer thus stores water not in dams and  artificial reservoirs, but right where it  can be reached by the roots of growing  crops.  Through these principles a rainfall of  twelve Inches can be conserved so ef-  ��� fectively that it will produce better "results than are usually expected of an  annual precipitation of twenty-four  Inches In humid America. The discoverer and demonstrator of these principles deserves to rank among tbe  greatest of national benefactors. He  has not merely made two blades of  grass grow where only one grew before,  but be has made it possible to cover  with wheat and corn, alfalfa and other  useful crops tens of thousands of square  miles of fertile land on which nothing  but sagebrush, cacti, Kansas sunflowers and bunch grass are now found.���  John L.

'S  Prom insurance records it has been  found that ahout 35 per cent, of the  deaths of policyholders was attributed  to diseases of the digestive system.  ' To persons who have been accustomed to think lightly of indigestion,  biliousness and liver derangements  this statement will be rather startling  but it cannot bo refuted.

Working Forthe Tribe.  Portuguese South Africa furnishes  an excellent example of "collectivism"  as it works out in a primitive society.  Every year the chiefs of the tribes  send a band of their young men to the  Transvaal to earn tlie hut tax for the  whole tribe. By this' arrangement the  majority of tbe tribe lives in ease,  while a small portion of their number  work underground for perhaps nine  months, at the end of which time they  return home and surrender 80 or 90  per cent, of their earnings to the chief  for the uses of the tribe.

Edward Oyster says in the American  Poultry Advocate: "I have sixty Silver  Penciled Wyandotte hens.and pullets.  Forty of them have tbe run of the  barnyard; others are in good dry pens.  I never did like feeding mash, so concluded to give the dry feeding a trial.  About the 1st of December I constructed: hoppers, making them In size according to the number of hens in the  pens. They hold enough for three to  four days. I mix ground corn and oats,  equal parts; white middlings and  coarse bran, equal parts ' toy weight,  then mix the whole together thoroughly and fill the hoppers���keep them filled all the time. Besides this, I feed pats  scattered in the litter in the morning  and_corn at.night���airthey^wUIea.fcr;  with an occasional feed of wheat at"  noon, cabbage two to three time a  week, fresh water all the time, also  oyster shells. T have never gathered as  many eggs with.any other method of  feeding."' ���'..-���,���-���  Street Trees.  A~s soon as a street or avenue is  opened by all means set trees on both  sides, not too closely together, always  having in mind the size the spesies  planted will naturally attain. Trim the  tree properly, cutting off all branches  that have started too"low-down so as  to eventually interfere with the passage of the streets. One should particularly realize the necessity of making  this trimming while the trees are  small and all scars will be small and  heal rapidly. The effects of leaving  handsome maple trees until it has keen  adjudged necessary to .remove large  limbs, causing hideous scars to appear,  may be seen in almost any town.  Don't Keep Mongrels.  The Increase in prices of fancy poultry shows the stability of the industry.  Every one knows that the fancy poultry business as a whole is ever on the  increase, says "Wurt W. Warner.  It costs no more to keep thoroughbred stock than mongrels, and the  profits as well as pleasure are much  greater. Besides, the breeder of tbor-  pughbred fowls can dispose of his surplus stock without taking them to market. The flocks look much better and  are really more: healthy than those of  scrub birds. ���  ��� xue eurnest year consisted of twelve  months, having each twenty-nine and  thirty days alternately, thus making  354 days.

If ever, been observed in  America, but In September the birthday' of Pike's peak, so far as history  Is concerned, will be observed by the  state of Colorado, with President  Roosevelt and some of the members  of bis cabinet as guests. The occasion  will mark the one hundredth anniversary of the discovery of the mountain  by Lieutenant Zebulon Pike and may  possibly be the occasion of an international event of some interest. When  Lieutenant Pike was captured by  Spanish soldiers In February, 1807, he  was relieved of several maps and  manuscripts, which were never recovered. They are supposed to have been"  sent by the governor of Santa Fe to-  the viceroy at the City of Mexico- and  by him forwarded to Madrid. As the  Spanish are careful about the preservation of historic documents and records, it is believed that Pike's papers  are still in existence.' At the suggestion of Representative Brooks of Colorado Secretary Root has requested the  Institute  The Proccrnies'of Nature by Which It  Is  Produced.  Rain is, as we all know, the moisture  of the atmosphere condensed into  drops large enough to fall with perceptible velocity to the earth.'*'The variation in the sizes of tlie drops Is dependent upon the difference in"-the  height from which they have fallen  and to the arriount of atmospheric disturbance present at the. time. If they  fall from great heights the drops suffer gradual division into smaller and  smaller parts until they are at last  converted into mists. In calm weather,  with the clouds near tbe earth's surface, the drops are apt to be large  and heavy. The formation of rain is  in general a continuation or an enlargement of the processes by which  clouds and fogs aro formed. Tho deposition of moisture depends upon the  cooling of tlie atmosphere, but concerning the precise process by which the  cooling is effected various opinions are  entertained even among those who  have made meteorology .1 life study.

The dictum of the president of the  Divorce Court, that if the drink habit  could be eradicated the Divorce Court  might close Its doors, turns attention  to the question whether the drink habit  among women Is really increasing . or  diminishing, says The London Mail.  The number of divorces is certainly  Increasing, -and the Police Court and  coroners' records show increases in the  number of convictions for drunkenness  and of deaths accelerated by intemperance.  These facts, however, relate to only  a part of the population, and the striking point remains whether, ln spite of  all the efforts of temperance- advocates  and the growing public opinion against  alcoholic drinking, the habit is growing among the mass of women.  Temperance reformers might be expected to give the most favorable report of their work, yet an official at  the Church of England Temperance Society, at Dean's Gate, Westminster,  says there is no doubt the drink habit  is increasing, and not diminishing,  among women.  "It seems that women are not so sus  ceptiible as men to the appeals of temperance workers to their reason," he  said. "In the last two or three years  probably no pronouncement against tha  use of alcohol has had such a marked  effect as Sir Frederick Treves' declara.  tion that alcohol is a poison. Men pay  serious attention to such a statement  from such a man, and they are induced  to put a curb on themselves when Sir  Frederick Treves tells them that alcohol is apt to lead to a physical bankruptcy.  Women Unimpressed.  "But women do not seem to be im  pressed in the same manner. The well-  to-do- woman who had a round of calls  to make, and finds herself getting tired,  is apt not to act on the belief that alcohol is poison. She is offered a glass  of wine, and she takes it, saying to herself ,T must keep myself going for the  afternoon.' That Is one of the causes  of the drink habit among betiter-class  women.  '���Much is being done to establish tho  belief in total abstinence among the  younger women, and that phase of temperance work is most encouraging; but  it is undoubted that in spite of the  greater attention paid to the.question  in recent years intemperance is increasing, and not decreasing, among women."  Nearly all the leading doctors are  temperance advocates to-day, and such  eminent men as Sir Thomas Barlow,  one of the King's physicians, and Sir  Victor Horsley, have given their special  attention to tho . habit of drinking  among women. Sir Thomas Barlow not  long ago said that the special feature  -of-mlemperu.nce-among-women-is-"so-  cret drinking," and that relatively it is  more common among women than men.  One of the-chlef means of secret  drinking among middle-class women Is  the grocer's license. A temperance  worker told an Express representative  yesterday that thousands of middle-  class homes are broken up through the  facility which the grocer's shop' offers  women to procure Intoxicants which  ,'they secretly drink at home. The drink  Is charged for as "groceries," with the  result that tho husband of the secret  drinker Is often unaware of his wife's  indulgence until it is too late.  . Secret Drinking.  Once contracted, the habit of secret  drinking is so hard for a woman to  break that when deprived of every ordinary form of alcohol women will resort to such an Incredible stimulant  as eau do cologne, which has the cor-  taln .effect of producing madness.  A west end doctor expressed the bo-  llcf that the growing habit at drinking  among women of the better class in  London Is largely due to the "restaurant life."  "Instead of lunching and dining at  home, many women now take their  meals In public restaurants," ho said,  "and thoy acquire the habit u�� drinking  like men, taking a great deal more wine  than Is good for them, and finishing up  with liqueurs or brandy, as if it wero  the natural thing for a woman >to do.  "The after-theatre supper leads to  similar indulgence, ami I often see  women of my acquaintance after supper quite visibly affected by Hhe wino  thoy have consumed.  "Drinking among women Is much  more pronounced than it was ten years  ago, and horrible as it may seem the  secret drink in -which many well-to-do  women Indulge Is brandy. A whlsky-  and-soda is a common request among  women at- afternoon calls."  Dear Mother  Your links one* are a constant care m  Fall and Winter wether. They will  catch cold.

A Michigan man tells a grimly humorous story of a lumberman who,  after a bard winter in tbe lumber  camps, appeared in the streets of one  of the larger towns ready and anxious  "to have a good time." This, lumberman had with him the sum of $500, tbe  proceeds of his season's labor���a sum  for which he had toiled and slaved and  risked his life In the lumber jams, enduring the while all the discomforts  and trlbulatious of the rigorous winter.'  With the $500 thus painfully amassed  tbe lumberman sought the comparative  civilization of a lumber town. He first ���  purchased himself a big drink and an  expensive cigar; then bled him to a  faro joint, where he staked bis entire  fortune on a single play. In another  moment he was penniless. Shifting  . tbe cigar from one comer of his mouth  to the other, tbe lumberman cheerfully  observed, "Oh, well; easy come, easy  go!"    lieiierea,  "Our cashier wants a vacation this  summer," said tbe vice president of the  bank. "He'd like to get away, he says,  for about throe weeks."  "Good," replied the president. "That  removes a weight from my mind. I  was beginning to be afraid his accounts  might be in such shape tbat he wouldn't  dare to go away."���Chicago Record-  Herald.

In the autumn of 1SS5, Iho story  j tinn, N, S. Kellogg, who was grubstaked by Cooper and Peck took to  '^Murray some samples of ore, which  liis employers declared worthless. He  root Phil O'Rourke, howurer, who snid  'ihey were of - value.  Harry Baer and Goelz then grubstaked Kellogg and O'Rourke to locate  the ground trom which the samples  had been-taken. These m-n", on the-  'second day of their expedition, chanced  upon Bill, the j ickass, which had  elrayed from Cooper and Peck's camp,  'and pressed iti'nto service.   _  One day the animal escaped from  tbe two prospectors, and when they  found it browsing on the mounlain  Bide ifhdd pawed up a qu.in.ity ol  'njosarapd'earthj disclosing the crop-  pings' of tbe Bunker Hill'ledge.  ' Cooper and Peck then instituted  suit for a part of the mine, on the grubstake law, alleging that the jackass  represented them. After a long battle  "through two courts, Judge Norman  'Buck decided in thoir favor at Boise.  The jackass was'in tlie court room as  '���exhibit A." The mine waa then valued  'at i|'4,0]0,'0), but ia now held at  ''$17 ,ob'6,ooo; r  '" Immediately after the decision was  made Kellogg purchased Bill for $250  'cash, and employed Charles Robinson  to take the animal to bis home at  Forest Grove, Ore., and care for him  as long 'as he lived, for a Balary of $50  a mon'th.
