T.i.'re seems to be no part of the
province but has its mineral
s 'ction. In fact, from the
Rockies to the Pacific, from Ihe

the Arctic circle, this wonderful
mineral country has been and is
being explored. Exploration has
demonstrated that all of the
precious and useful minerals
exist in that domain, and yet tho

What the future of British
Columbia will be is beyond con

if the mineral discoveries should
continue for the next 10 years
the production will be greater
than any similar section the

The possibilties are great. The

Since the election fears have
been expressed that with the
liberals in power the great enterprises projected, and even
promised, by the conservatives,
will not be curried out. Among
them is tho Crow's Nest pass
railway. The liberal party are
committed to retrenchment and
reform, but we learn that most
of the promises made by the conservatives will be carried out;
that while a subsidy loan may be
granted for building the Crow's
Nest pass road, no money subsidy will voted. It is not the policy of the new government to
check progress in any part of
the dominion,

minerals, suoh as gold, copper, nickle,
silver and load ores, refractory anil
compound ores. This Furnace is de?
signed and uonsli'iu.tod by and for a
prospeotor, who, requires a serviceable
furnace, easily transported over a
mountainous country by a pack animal:
Unit is complete and ready, and can lie
set up at any dump of low grade ores,
that otherwise will not pay to sliip with

of a Cupola.Smelter, knock-down bottom

ores, made of No. 10 steel plates with
slag and metal spouts, rotary steel
blower, countershaft wiUi geared pulley
for blast supply, by either wuter, steam
or hand power; with three graphide
crucibles, three steel ladles, six furnace
steel bars and tools, only weighing complete 1285 pounds—when the prospector
can determine the value ot one ton of
the ore in a five-hour heat by (lie output of the bullion.
Willi a little ordinary intelligence ol
the average prospector, this live feet
by three feet inside diameter little
smelter, run on low grmlc orgg, will nut
only pay for itself every week, hut it
will convince tho skeptic beyond redemption who does not believe with us
that tho little smelter must come ti

The fact that a great many of thesi
cupola type, smelters are now being
adopted throughout the Western mining district, and all giving entire satis
faction, is sufficient recommendation

necessity to every prospector, mine
owner, millnian, sampling works or

This smelter has met will] such universal satisfaction, and our confidence
in it to ship the above outfit complete

And he Is glad to follow her;

With a freo hand doth minister.
But. when sweet Hope at last hath fled,
Cometh her sister.  Memory;
She wreathes Hope's; garlands round her
And strives to stem as fair as she.
Then Hope comes hack and by the hand
She leads a child most fair to see,

And bluer grew the shy above;

N love, lieutenant!" I cried, almost
starting from my seat, so greatly
had he surprised me.
My fneiitl Swash generated a great
cloud of smoke in his pipe and it bo enveloped his head that I could not Bee his
face, deeply flushed as it must have been,
and from thf cloud of gray vapor came
the gruff reply:
"Yes, In love, confound It!"
"Oh, how Interesting'." exclaimed my
wife, dropping her magazine and looking
up at my friend and myself, whom she
had always previously declared to be
most unlnterestli-g when we got together
over our pires.
"It is not very pleasant for me," muttered Swash. He was greatly embarrassed and fixed his eyes pensively on
the  floor.
"What Is her name?" I asked.
"I don't know,' he answered brusquely.
"Where does she live?" ventured my
"Don't know t(jat."
"Where did you meet her?" said I.
"Can't tel). that, either, Dockboy. Don't
think me disagreeable. If I could I would
gladly answer your questions. Indeed, I
wish lhat I was able to."

Mid. "13 this young woman purely an
ideal, a mental creation of your own?
You have been melancholy enough of
lato to have been sighing for somethln
more material."
"She Is not a mere creation of my imagination," replied the lieutenant, solemnly.
"She exists—where, I don't know. I saw
her once a great way off, and she realized nil my Ideals of the woman I would
make Mrs. Swash. And when I saw her,
for an Instant though it was, I cried to
myself, 'Here, Swash, Is tha woman you
have dreamed of all these years. That
soft, Intellectual face, those soulful ty
those belong tc the woman you have been
waiting for.' Then she was gone, from
whero and whither I can't tell, for I
can't tell where I saw her."
Swash sent a beautiful ring of smoke
circling upwnrd toward the celling, and
on it fixed his eyes watching it aa It
swung away into the air, became thinner
and thinner, and finally disappeared, and
where it had been he kept his eyes fixed,
so that it seemed that he was looking oft
Into space, unconscious of our presence

she suspected that our visitor's mind was

"Your case Is really most remarkable,'
I said. "Explain. Don't surround yourself with such an air of mystery. It would
relieve you to conllde your troubles in us.
Perhaps we could help you."
"Yes, indeed," cried my wife,, enthusiastically,   "Perhaps  we can  help  you."
Swash started.  "Ah, yea.  Where did I
,    leave oft? Perhaps you can—Indeed, yes.'
-   -"Perhaps we can assist you," I repeat -
"I think not, Dockboy," he said, having recovered himself. "For my case Is
truly remarkable. I have swept tho skies
with a telescope and can't And her. I
have walked ihe streets day and night,

a month ago I was walking down Broad
way on my wny home to my hoarding
house," continued my friend. "It leemi
to me that I had been up here to see you.

At first all was blackness. '1 can't se

Justed,' replied the astronomer. And wi'.ti
that lie began to turn a lot of screws.
The blackness gave way to a hazy griy
light, that I suspected was from a theater
across the street, but I said nothing and
strained my optic nerve to make
the planet. It was of nu use. I withdraw
my eye and complained. The astronomer
then discovered that the telescope whs
pointed wrong, and he looked through It,
lowered one end and gave It  a turn.
"My eye was at the Instrument a^ain,
but no change was visible in the mike*

dolphla Record,
Nnshvlllo reports that orders from thfl
country are backward und for small
w...iard, which was large, the
walks were spread over with sand, and
the trees, loaded with fruit, afforded a
beautiful shady grove. This was Clara's
favorite nook; here she would go and
read poetry. She had been given the
works of Lamartme, beautifully bound.
Now. Lamartine Is a very tender poet,
and Clara was still in her teens, and this
was summer, and the fragrance of the
flowers and the murmer of the breeze acted on her young mind; and through this
book she would dream of things that she
had never dreamed of before.
(me day her mother asked her if she remembered her cousin Albert.
"Oh, yes. indeed!" said she. This answer came from her heart; she blushed,
and from her neck to her brow she felt
that sort of electricity that Is produced
bv a little shame and a great pleasure.
"Well." said her mother, "you will see
him very soon."
Clara was about to say, "Oh! how glad
1 am." but she thought it more proper to
sav nothing.
And why was she silent? I will tell
you: It was because she had read Lamartine. Why! does poetry make one
false? Well, I don't know about that, but
it ?peaks of love—and what is love?
"Well." said Clara, "I have not seen
him for two years. I suppose he is
"Not more than you," said her mother,
listing a loving glance of admiration to
her daughter; "you were a little girl when
you went away—you are a young lady-
no w."
Clara ran off lo her beloved grove to
hide the blushes on her cheeks and the
benllngs of her heart. She sat down,
drew from her pocket her volume of poetry, but read not a line.
Albert arrived a few days before he was
expected, but she was thinking of him.
She always had roses on her cheeks, but
these roses changed Into peonies when
she saw him, and her hands trembled.
He took hold of those hands and kissed
her on both cheeks.
He was a medical student A'ho had not
yet In IiIb brnln the least thought of anything serious; he had suddenly discovered
In himself a vocation for the beautiful
science of Aesculapius, that he might go
to Paris to spend a few years of his life
nnd waste a few thousands of his father's francs.
"Ah! little couBln," said he, "you are
pretty now. Why, I am afraid 1 shall
fall In love wdth you."
She looked at him, not knowing what
to say.
"Have you forgotten the good times we
had In this garden, and over thero in the
"0, no," snld she.
"And when we would go rowing and I
would scare you by swinging to and fro
in the boat to capBlze you?"
"0, no, I remember It all."
"Then why don't you put your arms
around my neck and say pleasant things
to me ns you did then?"
"I don't know," she faltered.
Then ho said lo himself: "This cousin
of mine must be a Utile simpleton."
"Well said he, aloud, "and what Is this
"Lamartine.   It Is beautiful,"
"I don't think so. 1 think it stupid"—
then seeing Hint she was somowlmt
abashed, he added: "Why does It displease you that I should not care for Lamartine?"
"Because I love his poems."
"Well, If I read poetry 1 want Alfred de
Musset. 1 shall send you his works when
1 get lo Paris."
At this moment they heard a quick and
Arm step on Ihe sandy walk, and a young
mun came upon them.
"Excuse me, mademoiselle," said lie. "1
havo Just learned thai Albert Is here, and
1 have come to shake hands."
An old saying came to Clara's mind:
"Two 1b company; three Is a crowd." Sin-
was ioo well behaved lo say ll, so she loft
the two young men together, When nlone
she rollecled that Albert was a vory nice
cousin, and might make a very guud husband; nH for Ills friend—well, he was a
very good-looking man, and might he a
very nlco follow—hut what a difference
belween the two!
"Your cousin Is a charming girl," said
"0, yes, hut she Is only a schoolgirl,"
"Well, what else can she he? She is
Just out of school, and nol a woman yet.
Do you know what wore my thoughts as
1 looked nl you both?"
"How can 1 know?"
"I was thinking that you would mnke a
prelly couple."
"Now, Jack, what litiriu havo 1 ever
done that yuu should want lo chain me
"Are you not 35?"
"Is Ihal old age?"
"Would you give an old mnn lu your
couhIii, who will be only 111 next year?"
"In two years she will lie 20-thal will

"Clara 1h ii good mulch; nlir ffirtliliOH

whiH mny happen one day? 1 have pluu-
ty of time lo think of It."
"1 think your euuslu deservim heller
than Hint, and you uuglil lo be In love
wllh her."
"What! luve at first sight! 1 do think
Clara Ih pretty, but,...plenty of llnie....
plenty of time!"
Jpvcryhndy seemed happy at Ihe mill;
nWin Clnrn, who listened with pleasure to
the compliments of her cousin whenever
he chanced lo he wllh her, and she
thought him ho witty thai she quite forgot to show Iter own wit before him.
In the meantime Hhe was hoping (hat
he started wilh a valiso
In one hand and a bundle under one arm;
it was Mussel's works.
Clara met him at the garden gate; she
was looking as fresh as the flowers, and
he. being conceited, thought the happiness expressed on her face was due to his
presence. She was less timid than Inst
year and a huh- stouter; one could read
her heart through her gray eyes and her
"Is what   1   hear true,  Clara?"
"Certainly: 1 was about to write to you.
1 want you here for tho wedding."
"It is impossible!"
"Quite possible and true."
"With whom?"
"With .lack, of course."
"Ah, the scoundrel! There Is nothing
like a friend ,to betray one."
"Why, Albert, what a short memory
you have. Poor Jack would not speak of
love until he was quite sure of your feelings toward me. 1 urn very thankful that
you set him at liberty to speak. I am so
proud and happy at being loved by such a
noble heart."
Albert threw his bundle on  tho table.
"What Is thin?" asked Clara.
"Musset's works. 1 had promised them
to you."
"You are too late, cousin. Jack gave
them to me long ago, as 1 was complain-
Ing of your forge fulness."
"Tell me Clara—this is all a dream, is
it not? You nre not going to marry
Sho laughed.   "And why nol?" said she.
"Because I love you; because if you
mean to marry Jack I start by the first
train, and you shall never see me again."
3he looked at the clock, as ho had done
the year before, and said, archly; "Then
hurry up, couBln. for the train is here,
and it cannot wait."—From the French in

The International Blue Cross ocean life
ami' salvage service. A pretty name, i'
faith, and a suggestive one. It Is the name
which Henry Foxlon Craggs, a member
of an English firm of shipbuilders, has
chosen for a proposed fleet of lifeboats
which shall be equipped and manned for
Ihe purpose of saving life and property on
the ocean highways. He urges 'the undertaking of the scheme by the Kngllsh
nation, In oonnectlon with such other
maritime powers as may And It available. He believes that the Investment necessary would pay good Interest to all,
says the New York Herald.
The Idea, In brief, Is that a certain
number of steam lifeboats, each at some
given point of latitude and longitude as
a central station, should cruise around
the sens In search of disabled vessels and
their crews. An International hoard
should be uppolnted, representing the nu-
tions who adopt the scheme, each nation to he represented in proportion tc
shipping tonnage. The board should determine tho number of lifeboats and of
cruising slatlons, the latitude and longitude for each boat on her station, within
sight of which point each shall cruise for
a llxed time, such latitude nnd longitude
and dates lo he published In the marine
almanacs, so thai all vessels may know

They are lo bo fitted with twin triple
engines, giving a speed of !I» knots;
exlra large boilers, lilted with induced
draught, to he used In case of need; evaporator and feed heater, with 'connections.
A large condenser will supply fresh water
for boilers' and ship's ubc, to bo connected to mldshlptauks as well as fresh
water tanks, nnd lo have ash ejectors.
The boats tire to he practically unsiukn-
blc, built In water-light compartments,
with midship water-light bulkhead fore
and art up to Ihe main deck, without any
opening whatever, and the second bulkhead to be carried up lo awning deck.
Watcr-tlghl doors are to be an the main
deck only for communication.
The bonis are to carry one or two
smaller lifeboats of the best type, with
niriheir usual appliances, ns used by the
National Mfehoat Society, and suitable
davits or cranes or double derricks to

US, I'AlulKTT closed Iho door
wilh a llillo sigh of satisfaction,
and turned with outstretched
md delicately Hushed checks to
man who was standing in the center
of her drawing  room.
"You have come because 1 sent for
you?" wllh gentle emphasis.
lliiKh    Hurl on    looked   down  Into  the
tempting face so near to him and answered;
"I knew you would." Her voice was
a caress, and for a moment the violet
eyes were veiled.
She flung herself wllh a careless grace
on the divan In front of the grate lire,
beautiful as a dream, even more lovely
in her mature charms than she hud heen
in ihe days when Barton had loved her
above and beyond everything. She was
Margaret Maryland then.
"Come, share my throne."
Hugh accepted the Invitation, and for
tho first time since ho had entered Mrs.
Padgett's luxurious home, he smiled,
"l saw by the papers that your vessel
had arrived," she said, toying with the
lace handkerchief in her lap and turning with soft eagerness to him. "I ran
up to town for the opera, and 1 could not
resist letting you know that I was not
at Chnrnmouth. I did right? You are
glad that I sent for you?"
Her voice sank to a pleading whisper
and her eyes had an alluring softneBB in
them ns they sought his face,
"Yes; you did quite right, Mrs. Padgett," Hugh replied, but his voice and
manner were so directly opposite to that
which Mrs. Padgett had expected that
unconsciously she straightened and gave
him a searching glance. He was gazing Into the Arc and his profile did not
look forbidding.
"It used to be 'Margaret* and 'Meg' In
the old days," she said with almost childlike plalntlveness ns she sank back reassured.
Hugh shook himself with a little laugh,
and meeting her gaze direct, answered
What un excellent memory you have
developed! The 'old days!' Really, they
are so,far distant In my memory' that I
feaV I cannot recall them."
In that moment the hope that was In
Margaret Padgett's heart died, and Bhe
suffered agony that no trouble In all her
26 years had had power to bring to her.
For an Instant the room swam before her,
but with habitual self-control she regained herself immediately.
"Yes," with a slight smile. "Forgotten?
Fie! to let a woman's -memory outlast
And there was nothing to tell that the
Joy had gone out of her life forever, nothing snve the paling of her lips, and tho
hit of luce In her hands.
"Nay; you are not fair," Hugh said,
deliberately; "there was a day, you will
recall, when my memory was better than
yours. It was the day, if you will permit me. that you forgot that you were
pledged to me, and bound yourself to another man,"
The ticking of the sliver clock on the
mantle was the only sound that broke the
stillness which ensued. Hugh sought his
companion's face questlonlngly, but her
eyes were fixed on the slim hands that
rested white and nerveless in her silken
"1 yield you the palm," she said at last,
with hor Inimitable grace. "You have remembered." Then straightening, she
passed her hands over her face aa though
she would clear away some unwelcome
vision, nnd turning to him, added calmly:
"Now that you are here, may I not hope
to hear how you have succeeded since
your absence."
Though Barton despised the woman for
her fickleness, ho could not fall to admire
her at this moment for her spirit,
"You are very kind. Beyond my moBt
ardent hopes, I have succeeded. It hue
been hard work, as you will understand;
save for the three months I spent nl
home last year, I have tolled unceasingly."
"1 was abroad during your visit, I believe. But my companion, Miss, ISsholt,
whom I left to care for Mr. Padgett's
molher, informed me that you honored
mo with several calls."
Barton had not a handsome face,
though It was one that people oftentimes
turned lo look at a second lime; a face
that could become us tender nnd as lovable as a woman's. Just now a light
that transformed li rested there momentarily, then died as quickly as It came.
"Yes; I called frequently, t found that
Hope .Miss lOsholt—nnd 1 wcro old

Something In his voice made Mrs. Pad-
gelt raise lior head quickly. She looked
and read, A while ago she had deemed It
Impossible lo suffer keener pain than was
hers nl that moment. Now, with a woman's Unerring Instinct, she divined that
another had taken her place In thu heart
of the man she had worshipped, and tho
Mioughl was torture. That the one who
had supplanted her should be her companion, the one who knew her life as It
really was, the girl wham she hud snubbed and petted alternately at her capricious will, wus tho bitterest sling,
"Then your visits were lo Hope Esholt
and nol to me?" she demanded.
"The hist one was for you, the others
were for her," Hugh answered, Blmply.
"Permit me lo congratulate you," with
a smile that was devoid of mirth, "I had
no Idea of so Interesting a romance growing In my house, 1 brought homo a
French maid with me, and so was obliged
to dismiss Miss lUsholt, but doubtless
you will And her as redolent of tho coun

"Thank you," Mrs. Padgett, T am In

Hugh Interrupted, towering tall and stem
above his hostess us he arose, "You will
pel-mil me lo wish you adieu. 1 have an
eugagemeul with Miss lOsliull this evening."
Km tt inoiii' nt ilielr eyes met, tho woman's huldlug a wild regret for a vanished happiness; the man's enduring a
vain sorrow Ihal this woman had ever
been known tn him. Hhe held nut her
hand hesllaliiigly. At llrst Hugh would
have passed rrutu her without taking It,
but (hero Unshed to him Ihe memory or a

Tor a moment held ll gravely.
The hall door closed and Mrs. Padgett
was alone In her iiiagulllceiii beauty, mir-
rmindud with every coin fori thai gold

And the fnce of Ihe man whom shu had
married for his wealth, and who hud
loved her oven as she had loved another,

platform of Ihe Utile station at, Crossings, Hope IDsholt's homo. The alntlou

broad shouldered fellow and said; "Going to Iho hold, sir?"
"No; to Miss lusholt's house, There Is

LAItOK       MAP        pnOJRCTRII
Hopro.lnee    the    United    StiltCH    nu
Three   Mile*  of  Potomac  Klllts.
I suppose no reutty meritorious scheme
for Increasing the city's usefulness ub n,
museum center has been nl tlrst more
generally frowned upon man tho surface map project, says tho Washington
correspondent of the Tioslon Transcript.
Mr. Cannon, a young man from Utah
who came to the senate Ihls winter, introduced a bill to lay off on the Potomac
flats, for a space two or three miles in
length and half as wide, a ground map
of the United States on a scale never
before attempted. The Idea seemed to
most people visionary; they asked, of
what use would such a map be, and
would not its estnoiisnment and maintenance cost an unnecessary fortune?
But the young senator was persistent,
and as he besought the friendly assistance of his colleagues, was almost invariably told that If he would go to Gardiner Hubbard and get that gentleman's
approval, these senators whom ho had
approached would favor the project.
Probably they took this means of warding off what they regarded ns an Impracticability. But the Joke of It is that
Mr. Hubbard, who is president of tho
National Geographical society, and a
distinguished patron of science, believes
that this project might he made of the
greatest value to geographical study, and
an Invaluable aid to our world knowledge. Mr. Hubbard ut once called into
consultation Mr. Wolcott, who is at
the head of tho geological survey, ami
with him discussed many of the praotioal
details of the plan. Mr. Hubbard then
appeared before the congressional committee In support of the project, nnd
Mr. Cannon's Idea Is beginning to take
root. According to Mr. Hubbard, this
great map would be to geographers of
the country what tho great museums nre
lo the specialists In the several lines
there represented. A uniform system of
exaggeration for mountain elevations
would be adopted, and a constant supply
of water provided to keep the rivers
running nt a representative rate, and
all the miniature Niagaras pouring down
their floods,
On a scale of this size every established highway In the United Stales
could be represented, the larger buildings, even, and the exact limits of the
great cities, the lines of the railroads,
bridges, tunnels, nnd a thousand and
one points of Interest which have never
found their way upon the four-by-six
maps, By the use of different kinds of
coloring matter, the prevailing geological
types can lie shown, and perliaps by
pointed arrows above the surface the
prevulllng winds. A series of paths
would be arranged, either slightly raised
or perhaps below the general surface of
the map, and In lhat way when one Intended to make a trip to any particular
point in the country the proper thing
to do would be to take u walk down Inlo
tho map and around by proper avenues
lo the representation of the section
which It was proposed to visit.
People thinking of Investing In real
estate anywhere, or of building faoloHos
or railroads, could get n bailor Idea of
the lay of the land from such a map as
this than from a study or tho actual,
country, for ihey could see the whole
thing much belter. I n't I me the useful-
uobs of this great work would bccoino
recognized, and people would come here
from all parts of Ihe country to make
special geographical studies. The data
for such an undertaking Is already In
Iho hands of Iho geological survey or
being rapidly collected, ami all congress
would have lu do Is to appropriate Hi-
Polunmc lluls, udmlrnhly shaped In outline for snub a scheme, and set skillful
scientists and engineers to work carrying out the project. Some very subsluu-
lial material thai would withstand ihe
elements would be necessary to represent tho earth's' surface. Perhnps In
tlmo the weather bureau would co-operate by representing on this map Hie
weather conditions at the lime in every
part of the country, Just as ihey do now
on their blue print maps. Ituln storms
nnd heavy winds could then by sprinkling devices and Sturtcvnnl blowers hu
represented, and we should Ihus havo
before ub at all times our country as It
Is, us nature lias made 11, and us she Is
now treating It.

Mr. Morrill uses 100 bushels ot un-

uses In his orchard In Connecticut
S2.000 worth of muriate of potash a

if you have the money.
There are a great many people who

Six little peaches will weigh less than

cheaper to pick while green than when
ripe. In California the rule given the
Chinamen who do the thinning Is to
leave on Just peaches enough so you
can put your hand between each two.
That's the kind of commercial orcharding that pays.
Apples and pears should be treated

The commercial orchardlst of the future will more generally wrap his

cleared one dollar barrel on Identically

to retain their fine flavor. The longer
a pear smells good the poorer It is getting.
Secretory Dunlap of the Illinois State
Horticultural Society said: There will
be failures in Commercial fruit growing us In the past. One failure that
should be avoided Is the failure of being posted in the market. Last fall
many orclmrdlsts sold their crop uf
No. 1 apples for 60 to CO cents per barrel—the bulk of them sold for 75 cents.
These were hold by the buyers llll

Ihe crop has much to do with the success of orcharding in the future.
Mr. Llndley ot North Carolina, ex-
presldellt of the American Nurserymen's Association, suld lhat In their
section they hud made a reputation for
their peaches by the manner In Which
Ihey packed them.
They used six baskets to tho crate,
which when full weighed 10 puunds.
The peaches were packed In two rows,
each as good as the other. Before putting in the peaches a sheet of paper
was placed on the inside of the basket.
After the second layer was in a few
sprigs of peach leaves were laid nicely
on lop and the edges of the paper folded over them. This was done at an expense of not to exceed ten cents per
crate, and they were sold at 50 to 75
cents above the same quality of peaches from the same section that were not
so uniformly and tastily packed. Besides being honestly packed the name
of the variety was stenciled upon each
We havenm de a demand for our
goods that as yet we have been unable
lo meet. This Is one way to make commercial orcharding of the future successful, liaise good fruit, pack it honestly und tastily.

Miss Dow, however, never found any
dilllculty ut' getting rid of her lovers until she met Don Juan Miguel de in Corda,
a fierce and even haughty Brazilian, who
claims a lineage as old as the everlasting
hills. Dun Juan is dark, no MMuuklug
and full of determination. He met Miss
I'ow one glorious afternoon when she
was riding a favorite horse, and from
that hour he could think of nothing but
her superb figure, her "bronze brown
ryes" and her lustrous hair.
The Don's courting was swift and lo

securing1 an Introduc Ion, and before he
had known her a quarter of an hour the
Impetuous Brazilian asked Sallle to be-
eomo his wife. She laughed at him, and
he began to curse, Then Miss Sallio became alarmed, and, altering her tone,
begged for time. She said she must consult her father.
"Tonight," said the Brazilian, "1 will
call for my answer."
Rullh> rode Wildly for her father's lions*-.
and In a few words told her story. Sin-
was sure, she said, the man was mad, and
as for marrying him, she declared she
would as soon think of mating with th.'
old boy himself,
Dow pore received Don Juan courteously when the hitter called that evening,
and listened to him with a tine show of
patience, The Brazilian wasted no words.
"Seiior," hu said, "your daughter pleases me and 1 will take her lor my wife,
I return to my ranch in the morning. I
will now go and get a priest and we can

threw him out of the front door with so

noble Brazilian ceased to rattle. He wont

Dow, however, was not to be caught napping and promp Iy fortified his roaf tree
and armed his servants with Winchesters
and his daughter with a couple of revolvers. ,
"Keep one of these for Liu.' crazy Brazilian, my dear," said he to Sallle, and tho
girl marked Dow's name on the gun and
put ll away in a safe place.

were waging a fearful warfare in the

Then came the Harrison campaign of
1S40, with Clay sulking like an Achilles
In his tent, boiling and raging over ihe
alleged treason of Tyler. The medals
fairly rained down upon the people, and
their Influence was aS great as In the
first Jackson campaign. Harrison had
lived in a log cabin, where be drank
nothing but hard cider. This taunt of
the democracy was made the campaign
cry of the whlgs, and Ihe cider Dane!

A guest at one of the hotels in Pendleton related the following anecdote of
Joaquin Miller, says tho Hast Oregonlan.
"It was quite a number of years ago
I met Joaquin Miller, and I'll never tor-
get the occasion. It was on a steamer
on tile Atlantic ocean as we returned
from Europe. During the first half of
the journey we hud extremely rough
weather, and nearly everyone was sick,
one old gentleman was apparently not
affected wllh seasickness. He stood
looking off at the waves and the sky and
was fond of being on deck, even though
the tossing of the waves made It necos-
sarv lor htm to lash himself Into a chair
on'(he deck.
"Filially, the weather cleared up Mid "
the sea became calm and the passengers
became acquainted. The old gentleman
was not approached much by anyone and
appeared to make no advances. His
name was unknown, excepting to the
ship's ofllcors, with whom he registered.
Before we reached New York the ladies
were arranging a program for one oven-
itig In the main cabin, ami a self-appointed committee went about to secure
usslslnuce.    Several   well  known   publio
 a anil women were on hoard and all
promised to contribute something for the
general enjoyment. The ladles went to
the old gentleman. Yes, said he, ] wilt
try lo entertain the company for a few
moments. About five minutes, did you
say',' The ladles were somewhat amused,
and went away thinking It rather u joke.
They expected some sport from the funny old man and asked him ills name. His
reply was that he could be announced
simply as an old gentleman who would
furnish a number of his own selection.
"When the time came, lie arose and
said that he would recite a poem of his
own composition and he proceeded to
give them 'William Brown,' a poem
familiar to all who know Joaquin Millers
productions. The company were perfectly delighted, They stormed with applause, and Joaquin Miller was compelled to tell his name, which once repeated
was familiar to nearly every one lu the
cabin, and he was the lion during tho
remainder of the trip home."
