Jl],iMl4'St'intruders than our own officials at  the Coast. Major Walker, of the United States Customs, the other day arrested thirty little brownies at  Whatcom, who were promptly deported back into  British Columbia. Only two could show money or  give any evidence of having bjen in the country before* At Blaine, recently, a number of private citizens  drove a party of Japanese through the town and across the international boundary. The invaders slip  over in small groups hi charge of well-informed guides,  but as very few of them have any money or can speak  Knglish, they are easily detected. A little more energy on the part of officials at the coast would have a  tendency to prevent British Columbia being over-run  by Japanese aadXhinamen.  Thk latest news from South Africa is that the wfar  is practically over, and that Lord Roberts will start  for England about the 3rd of October. President  Kruger is trying to sneak out of the country, and  what remains of his misguided and once enthusiastic  followers are throwing down their arms. This is good  jiews. ��� ' -  V'Go into politics;" is the advice of Richard Croker  to all young men. The King of Tammany has no  doubt made such a huge financial success out of  the business as to make it a tempting one for ambitious aud unprincipled young men to engage in. It  is not, however, every day that a Croker, of Croaker,  of Richard's stamp is born, and besides, if all young  men were to enter politics with the view of emulating  him, there would not be enough money in the States  to go round. There are too many professional politicians already, and to increase the number would but  make matters worse.  Thk structure of the embryo of the grains of wheat  and barley recently obtained from Egyptian mummy  cases, has been scientifically examined. The result  is as anticipated, that aitlumgh the grains have undergone but little change in external appearance, and  the reserve substance* hive retained their chemical  composition, the chemical composition of .the embryo  has been completely altered and is no longer capable  of de velopmenL The dormant life of the seed must  long ago have expired, and this must be taken as entirely disposing of the apocryphal statement that  t hese seeds can germinate after thousands of years.  A liCHJSK of asbestos is the newest thim*- out The  'many advantages possessed by this peculiar mineral-  fibre is bound to bring it into prominence:iji structural  work; It is proof against lire and water, is as hard  a*'slate, and yet eatt.be nailed and planed like a piece  of wood: The substance is very light, and is an excellent insulating material against heat and cold.

California is tlireatened with a Belgian hare pest.  Less than a year ago the entire state ��� wiitf. Helgian hare  mad.    Prize stock was imported at exorbitant prices,  newspapers devoted much space to booming an industry Which was to rival the mineral wealth of Cdijoruia  and thousands of rabbitries were started throughout  the state    The craze, however, is now over,  and too  many who went into the   "industry-"   expecting to  make mone/, have discovered  that they can lose as  much in the business as in any other.      An effort to  create a demand for the hare as focxi has not proved a  success ; the flesh has  been pronounced unpalatable  and unwholesome       For this reason breeders have  become disgusted, and are turning their hares loose to  forage Tor   themselves.      The  wonderful   fecundity  shown by the hare in  California has had much to do  in killing the business of raising them.      It is estimated that there are more than   ioo.ooo of the little  animals in the state at present.      Not only dp they  multiply at a wonderful rate, hut they are hardy and  do well in theopen, hence the great danger of turning  them loose.     Our neighbors in California should not  forget the annual rabbit drives  of a few vears'. .ago,'  nor fail to profit by the  sad experience of Australia  and New Zealand.  IT is announced the Duke of Manchester has been  adjudicated a bankrupt, having tried in vain to compromise with his creditors.      It is a pity to  see  the  nobility of old England in the bankruptcy court,   but  still they must be taught the wholesome lesson to live  within their means.     This is what, other people have  to do, and there should be no exception made in favor  of "blue-bloods."      The Duke says  that   the family  estates are so heavily mortgaged that the receipts only  suffice to pay the interest.      This is".very ..unfortunate,  for the Duke,   and cognizant of the fact,   he will find  it difficult to justify his action in incurring liabilities  exceeding ��i5,000.    His grace says that his relatives  allowed him /70 a month, which is ample   for any  honest gentleman to live on I comfortably in England.  It is the etceteras that involved the Duke of Manchester, Ike too many more  of the English nobility and'-  aristocracy, in bankruptcy.     The sooner they realize  that they are responsible beings, and act accordingly  the better will it be for themselves and all concerned'  The Duke comes of a very extravagant  family, and  he appears to inherit this undesirable trait of character without the means to honestly indulge it.  An industrial commission is sitting at Washington  whose object is to devise ways and means to prevent  such calamities as, for instance, the coal miners*  strike In Pennsylvania. The strike inaugurated in  the anthracite region last week throws some M,nnr  men out oi work, and it we assume that each of'h*-  his on m average three persons dependent on hi  tBis would give 568,000 persons as direct sufferers by  .v.;  lbe:iroublef::afii  'iOMkfi^nbta'to  ':,;reasoti-of-thelock*out;a-  i'-'oftHis-cias^  ���ate,th*t^  ���:./%btna.te':^  \ and; worse,;^  ;���;��� this all.-.;,-;-.-No <HS��::%reatU l  pothers.: ;;.^  ... -aud i nsyaspathy^ii^^j^:risef;, tip goes freight 1  ; mahnfacture.-of wh^ "J  :: used by, t he ordi nary..;Consumer-��-i��; fact, an all^.

Of the rank and file 19 per thousand have been  killed or died from wounds, and 31:.8 have died from  disease.

The!  �� "'      1,        *i , af:  Economist has frequently alluded to the evils of the|  departmental stores'as felt even so far west as British  Columbia, They enter into unfair competition with  our western store keepers, and seem to enjoy every  facility for so doing. A one cent postcard carries the  order to Toronto, and from that point the parcels post  is at the service of the departmental store to carry its  goods to every quarter of the Dominion.' We wish  the retail dealers of Toronto every success in their effort to force the departmental stores to contribute a "  fair revenue to the public exchequer, in proportion to  the number of departments represented under th*  roofs of their huge establishments.  "I     *  1      A  Thrkk months from date the new passenger depot*  of the C.l\R* at Nelson will, it is expected, be ready  tor use.      The contract   for   the  building   has been  awarded to Mr. John Hepburn,   which is a sufficient  guarantee that  the work will be   well  done  and on  time.    Tenders are also invited for the erection of new  and commodious freight sheds at the depot,   work on  which will be commenced forthwith aiid  pushed to  a:orapletion.     There is a significance about these extensive improvements which cannot but tell in favor  of Nelson.    It is clear that the CPaR appreciate the  importance of the citya?s a business centre,  and as a  matter of business are providing for the ever-increasing traffic.      A look over the railway ground at the  west end of the city indicates the  permanency of the  improvements the big corporation are making, and if  there is anything in the prophetic,  the C.P.R.  management can see as for ahead as anyone      They are  convinced that Nelson is the most important point in  the Kootenays, and are practically demonstrating their  confidence in the future of the city.

One day a farmer came in  a bip- muscular chap���and as he sat in the operating  chair asked,".'.V Will it hurt ?'V Being in a jocular  mood he of the fbrcips answered, ������" Wcib.if It;aioesn4t  I shan't charge you ...anything;*" Then he fell to work.  ���TinTTooth came even harder than he expectecL and as  the man got up Irom the chair and pulled himself to*  aether in evident pain, the dentist asked, '/Well, did it  hurt ?" " Not a bit," replied the farmer as he sinxle  out of the office, leaving the operator minus a lee -and  '  completely non-plussecl.  And this reminds me of another little storv on somewhat.the same lines.    An -Irishman living in a section  of the Emerald Isle visited onlv once   a quarter bv a  dentist, was troubled with a had tooth-ache^..���'������,'''.He determined .'he. would have thetooth extracted,   but the  dentist was not due for two months to come; and tins  seemed a long time to stiller,  and the  ache had;������ cvi-  dentlycome to staya    In his agony Pal vveht into the  village and told his troubles to the���-druggist,''-requesting that individualto   -yank'it'out'.'   The druggist  was' not disposed to undertake the job,   but the sufferer was persistent.    Finally the .man was placed in  an ordinary chair,   and the druggist-- n muscular 'fellow-��� proceeded to operate.      He fastened ..his 'farcins  on the particular tooth   indicated; as  the seat  of augment, and pulled and pulled, and twisted and twisted,  holding on to the tooth although his poor ..victim was  wriggling around the  store  in agony.-.   ;\t last  the  tooth yielded to the sheer force brought to .bear-upon  it.    When Pat had sufficiently recovered U speak, lie  asked the druggist his charge,;wastoldone shilling.  and paid it over.      The next  time he h?d a tooth \'}  be drawn he waited for the dentist.

Then follows an effort to count each particular face or form and to'note the change effected by  position.     This apparently harmless exercise gradually  becomes   a   disease,  and the sufferer  getes so  infatuated with his study that he will lie a~hed in the  morning until roused from his reverie by some mera-  her of the household.

There are numerous inventions aiming at the relief  ol the wash-tub, household labor-saving devices.     A  welcome innovation in this line  is the Acme Steam-  Washer, just introduced in Nelson by Mr E. J Beau-  cage.      The washer is of tin,   and is made in various  sixes.    In the boiler proper, or steamer, is a revolving  drum,  |*erforted with small holes.     Into this drum  the clothes,   which   have  previously  been   soaked,  are placed*      The  washer  is put on the stove with  a couple of inches of water in the boiler, and as soon  as steam is up,   the cleansing process  begins.     The  dirt is thus forced out of the  clothes aud  falls in the  water beneath.      A few revolutions of the cylindar,  and all is over���the clothes are ready for the wringer.  The machine is provided with a close-fitting cover, so  that the wash-room  is not filled   with steam aud the  disagreeable odors of the wash-tub.    The Acme is an  indispensable washer.  It may be seen at Mr. Blaney's  store on Hall Street.  |fWn,il-r^s;throvvn i���.  The new disease of which  s M'H'-tr()m which, this" class suffer more par-  As } have said.

That there is considerable  elocutionary  ability iu  Nelson i\�� evidenced by the decided taste displayed for  theatricals and the high-class ���recitations heard at the  ���rt'mate'ur aiU'e'r'taiiimerits which  are a pleasing feature  of the winter season.      Now and again tiie' rendition  a>f some  ambitious  piece shows   undoubted   natural  ability, an 1 leaves the  conviction that a little careful  traiiiing��� a little professional assistance���vv^uld make  a wotuieriully pleasing improvement.      It   is   nDt in  every comrnunity that :au aspiring elocutionist has the  opportunity  of perfecting himself in   this charming-  art.    Nelson is fortunate in this particular.

Sixth  Royal Rifles and detachments of the Royal. Artillery,..  Ro}ral Engineers and Army Service corps, with two  seven-pound field guns, altogether about 400 men;  under the command of Colonel, now Lord Wolselew  Field Marshal, Corapiander-iu-Chief of the British  army. The expedition was tor the purpose of reestablishing the Queen's authority in the country.

During the night one of the sentries  captured a scout from Fort Garry, He was kept in  confinement until we arrived in Fort Garry,     There  was a very  heavy thunder   storm during the night,  with very   heavy rain  " On the morning of the 24th we re-embarked in  our boats and rowed up the river to a point !*nween  St. John's and Point Douglas,, where��� wed'iscmhnrket!  for our final march. There were some men standing on the bank of the river who .said that Kit! was  in the fort, with a number of followers. We formed  up in quarter column.

It is hard to believe that anyone could be  nstinuously enthusiastic over the routine of daily  mseliold duties for strangers. But to make a per-  ct home for a father, to relieve a tired-out mother,  ind provide time for her to enjoy just the things she  post wants to give attention to, or to contrive simple  Lasiires for brothers and sisters and friends, these  [very girl knows to be /' worth while." . - ���  If you learn how to be a good home-keeper and a  onie maker, and the time comes when vou must go  iiit into Lmsinessaq earn bread instead of to bake it, ���  lou will know that 8 o'clock  means when the' hour-  hand points to the centre of the figure 8 on the clock,  the munite-hand being at 12 ; that an hour means  60 minutes; that your attention, as well as your  time, must be given to whatever you would do well ;  that there are 100 cents in a dollar, and that to waste  cents means to waste dollars ; that it is essential to  do all tasks well and expeditiously at the same time ;  that you may give an exact good weight, time and  measure, and that all this can be done by concentrating attention on the work in hand. In short, you  will be punctual, industrious, quick and neat of hand,  thrifty, saving and attentive to your task, the very  ideal of business adaptibility,     *  fATENAUDE BROTHERS  JEWELERS AND OPTICIANS  D0ors, SasheS and Tu rned Work  Brackets and Office Rttinfil  Satisfaction  ���II CERTIFICATE OF IMPROVEMENTS.
