All through  the long fly-infested summer dayi-s lie  squawled and- smiled in turn as babies  do the world over. As he grew in  years and yearnings, he, wandered off  and got lost in the jungle and tempted  the crocodiles in the near-by stream.  He seemed destined to live a life like  that of his fellows who cared not for  the fashions in their contempt for  clothing. But a day came for Derowedia, for that was the name the little  chap answered to when he answered  at all, when ho turned his back on^ his  jungle home. He was a scion of royalty, a nephew of Cetywayo, the cele-  brate(*j-.Zulu chief, and along with four  others he. was taken to England. Dero-  wedlaat the time was thirteen years  of age and his knowledge of English  about as scant as his native apparel.  On Tuesday night, of last week, Rev.  F. C. Reynolds, pastor of the West End  Methodist church, Ottawa, united in  marriage one John. Douglas and Mrs.  Annie Booth, a hard working widow  who numbers amongst ' her"'*earthly  possessions ii' small con'tingent of lusty  youngsters'and a neaf little restaurant  on Wellington'-street, immediatelyeast  of Bank*. Her husband is an honest  looking chap, decidedly dusky of countenance and Hearing thc half century  mark. He is none'other than Dero-  wedia, the child of the African jungle,  the man of royal connection, says the  OttawaCitifcen.  The story of his life -from the tithe  he left sunny Africa to the time he  captiyated and captured the Ottawa  widow reads like a chapter from a story  -book^and^a-good^slory^book^atHliatf  Derowedia, or Douglas, as ho is now  known, left his native land where  clothiers would go bankrupt in a week,  in 1884, the year that his uncle Cetywayo, prirrae "of the Zulus, made his  unsuccessful attempt to buck the' line  against the British. That effort on his  part, it will be remembered, resulted  ".���al.  in the disastrous Zulu war.

'���I liked this woman; she was honest  and hard working and I thought we  could make it. I asked her and she  thought we could make it, too; so we  got married."

I never had much  hankering to go back after I got in  the way of wearing clothes and eating  bread and such like. Out there they  wear hardly anything and cook very  little and I couldn't go back to that  life."  When he first came to Canada, Derowedia, or Douglas, as he prefers to be  called now,.bore a letter of introduction from the Queen to Lord Minto,  according to his own story.

GEORGE  DENNY  Tells Something of the Horrors  of  the War -jn the Far -  East. _  To many it will occur that city election talk might well have been post-  poned.until after tlie Christmas holidays. The mind of the av< r ge business man is too much engiossed with  his own affairs during the Cluistmas  holidays to give that serious attention  to civic matters to which the subject.is  justly entitled. It concerns every man  that the affairs of thc city should be  conducted in a 'manner best calculated  to maintain-the-credit.of the city arid  at the same time In 'keeping with the  progressive spirit of the day. Partic-  ularly,i3 this the casein a young^aud  growing city like Nelson. It is essential at the present time that progressive  men should be 'at,the head of affairs,  but it is equally as important thai the  men who take charge are cautious and  will at no time pursue a policy will that  involve the citv.in irretrievable ruin.  Undoubtedly this is tlio idea of the  business men who have induced'Dr.  Ro3e to become a candidate for mayor  at the forthcoming election^ Dr. Rose  has already held the office of mayor  for one term, and his conduct of, thc  afFairs of Nelson during that period  was such as to induce tiie belief that  the business of the city would be safe  in his hands during the year 1905. It  was with great reluctance that Dr.  Rose consented to become a candidate,  His Canadian courtship was a realizing that due performance of the  short one, for brevity in matrimonial  matters is the rule with his people.  Out iu Zululand a girl is valued noton  the strength of her personal charms  so much as on the weight of brass and  other metal ornaments she wears.  Sometiires she'll be a regular junk  shop, carrying around with lier a  weight of forty or fifty pounds of wire  anda. onnamentSna about���her_ neck-and  ankles and in her nose and ears. Before ho "can call her his own. her admirer has to turn over to bis future  duties of the office would mean a great  loss to him in a professional way.  There wasa general feeling, in whieh  Dr. Rose shared, that'the present  mayor should accept another"term, but  Mr. Hamilton cannot really afford the  time, so thc choice fell upon the doctor.  It is understood that Doctor Rose and  his friends are selecting candidates for  tbo_ council-board, and that_due regard  is being observed asto their qualifications from a business point of view.

The latter one day organized a caravan and went away into the wilderness  of Australia, where be found certn!n  minerals and vegetables from which  he manufactured a compound which,  he says, proved to prossons mummifying properties such as were possessed  by the Egyptians.  To test the efficiency of tbe solution  ho has   hurried   certain animals   for  yeaiH after inoculating them with It  to see what edect the moisture of the  earth would have on tlie bodies.    Two  young children whoso bodies were embalmed and buried were taken up four  years later and found to be tbe same  in    appearance as   when   tbey.wero  placed beneath the ground.     Professor  Taylor claims that by his process human bodies can be preserved indefinitely, and that in tbe case of birds and  animals even the gloss of tbeir skin or  feathers can be forever retained, insuring the companionship of dead.pets for  those who do not waut to part with  them.

In this letter lie  ssks.for   $85,   stating that   he    had  lecelved   the   samo   amount     from  the Government candidate in Frorite-  nac, and that the two sums would re-  - pay his outlay, including $100 for the  man who made tbe boxes.'  Mr. Reilly  says lie will tell' the whole story iu  court, as he ought to-.tlo, and  that he  did not realize   the \wrong*** be   was  doing. Yet he is a graduate of Queen's  University,  and   the   late   Principal  Grant did not fail to discuss with his  young men   the  value of a citizen's  rights.   Mr. Reilly was himself at the  time of thia conspiracy an instructor  of young men, and tbis should have  given him a sense of responsibility.  Mow could he fail to know that he  was assisting in one of the gravest  crimes possible to amy man in a free  ,GOWtry7  Previous to the election the Conservative papers throughout Canada, and  particularly in British Columbia, ventured the belief that  in the event of  the Liberal   party   being returned to  power it would be several yeare before  work would be  commenced.-'in   this  Province ou the Grand Trunk Pacific  Railway.   So insistent were the Conservative papers on this point that the  Liberals hasteiu-.il to secure from what  seemed an   authoritative- source   the  most emphatic assurance that construction on the railway in  this Province  would be commenced simultaneously  with work in the East.   Still the Conservatives continued to express doubts,  and subsequent events seem to show  that they were not far astray in their  surmises.   But it was" largely on the  strength of assurances from the sources  referred to that the Liberals were enabled to carry British Columbia.   Now  comes ths Vancouver Province, a Liberal paper, with the following statement :   "The assurances given by Mr.  Prefontaine personally and those delivered by   President Hayes through  Senator  Templeman demolished   the  arguments  of the   Opposition candidates and speakers, and entirely satisfied the people.   The statements made  by these gentlemen, one speaking with  authority for the Government and the  other for the company, were unequivocal.   They promised that work would  begin     iu     British      Columbia    at  the   same    time    and   with   equal  vigor  that   it   was   begun   east    of  tho mountains.   The people accepted  thc assurances thus imparted without  hesitation or   further  questions, and  sont a "solid" Liberal representation  to the {louse of Commons.   It is only  three weeks since the elections, and we  are given to understand that in harboring .the belief we have referred to  we were eherishing a delusion.   Mr.  D avid H. Hays, the brother of President Charles M. Hays of the Grand  Trunk Paciflc, whose letter written to  Se nator Templeman had such a forceful influence with the electors of tbis  Province, is   authority for the statement  that  nothing will be done in  British Columbia for the next two or  three yeare. ' Mr.  David H. Hays has  just returned from Montreal, where he  met his brother, iu  whose confidence  ho undoubtedly is.   When  he speaks  us he .does,  frankly and deliberately,  .'we can regard.bis statements as-om-  Ing directly from the president of the  pany and as representing the' actual  stale of uilairs.   Mr.   Hays does not  hesitate to assume all responsibility for  what he says, and his words will unquestionably be taken by the public as  conclusive on this matter. Now, what  construction-are -we- to-place on-this  announcement, which comes practically direct from the president of the  Grand Trunk Pacific?   Are we to understand that all the assurances which  we received, prior to the election, regarding a matter ofsuch importance  to us and to our business,   interests  were  intended only  as an    election  dodge, as a trap to catch votes ? If Mr.  Hays' statement is true, if there is no  intention of beginning work here for  two or  three years,   we  have  been  grossly deceived, and wc can only presume tbat we have been made the victims  of a miserable "political conspiracy.    Surely,  however, a breach  of  faith such as this, is not a good beginning for a great national enterprise."  Lowest Rates  Best Time  Toronto,  Montreal,   New  Provinces, New England.

The Bretons arc a cautious people,  and prefer to hide their money rather  titan keep it in a bank. One of. them  the other day, having had a small fortune left to him, could think of no better hiding place than a drawer in an  old cupboard,in an attic, which he serenely thought uo one would suspect.  Going one day to pay a visit to his  hoard, he found the bank notes all  transformed iiito a beautiful soft nest,  harboring a family of young mice.
