"It. is a chirk-colored,  square-shaped 'stone,    set,   in   a  massive gold ring, and originally  bclongCMLto Salad in, from whom  it, was captured   by  a.

II  afterward came into the  possession of LTJricli, tho Margrave  of  Niiremburg, who wa.s the found-  '   or  of, the  llohenzollern family.  This ring has been passed down  from   generation   to generation,  one  of  the  most  highly prized  and interesting heirlooms of the  dynasty,' but the kings of Prussia  of late generations have  seldom  worn "it until it-was inherited by  rthe   present   Kaiser.      ft" is   a  matter of discussion whether  he  .  wears j it   from   superstition   or  ordinary interest.'"''llnhas never  loft his finger since  he  came   to  the  throne, . although   by   this  ' time he must have lost confidence  in  the protective  power of tlie  jewel.    Nothing  will  save 'men  and   women   in-���this world,from  many  of Afhe conditions of sickr  ness and pnin  necessary,. to our  life  on  earth.     But there  is a  talisman   that will  make all the'  accidents, aud,pains, and sorrows  of life'to  yield   up lo us some-  .thing   that  is  for  our-good and  "blessing, and bring us to  a  safe  and  satisfactory   haven   at   the  end.

Notes From Fernie.
From Our Own Correspondent:
Owing to the steady rains and
melting snow, land slides are of
daily occurrence,between Hos-
mer and Crow's Nest Station,
but the railway, company are
taking every precaution to prevent accidents such °as lately
happened,, and have a largo
force of men watching the track
along the dangerous places.
The tunnel at tho Loop is
making fair progress, it has
boen driven some eighty feet, it
is well timbered.
The coking ovens now building are making satisfactory progress, although the contractors
aro occasionally delayed for
want of sufficient building stone
which is not delivered as rapidly
as required to keep the workmen steady at.work.
A race is on"between the Canadian Pacific and Crow's Nest
Southern railway surveyors, engaged iu running a line up Mor-
risey crook. There is room for
only one track, and llie rival
companies are ti-yin<j_tp survey,
plot and record their route in
advance of the other.
