The prospecting season is over; mining except in the case of such properties us have ahead)' nuclei gone considerable development is closing down
for the winter; miners and prospectors
are coming into winter <]iiiirti>rs and
the season of 1807 is practically over.
As f.ir us North Kootenay is concerned it may be principally noted as a
year of great activity in the prospecting line. The* district has never been
so thoroughly genie over .is il, lias been
this summer. On the other hand tin*
difficulties of transportation have prevented as much development work
being done as was anticipated til the
beginning of the season.
In the Big Bend country two entirely new sections both highly miiier-
ali Zed .with ore carrying .1 very considerable proportion ot gold as well as
well as silver, copper and lead have
been located, and a number of claims
sttiked in both of them, us well as in
other and better known portions of
the district. In ' development work
the Carnes Creek Co. have met with
very gratifying success in their operations on the Roseberry mine, and the
Last Chance placer claim has given
the strongest indications that success
will ultimately crown the pei severance of the company", which has stuck
to the work on their deep diggings on
the property so long. On the Oie
Bull the operations set oil foot by Mr.
J. C.-Ferguson will give a good test of
tho permanency*of the quartz leads in
Ground Hog Basin," while the French
Creek Co., after an heroic struggle
with the difficulties of transportation
inlo the countiy, have at lasL made
such progress that next season will be
almost entirely devoted to the work of
hydraulicking the pay gravel on their
claims. Every step'gained in the development of the Big Bend country is
of vital importance to the progress of
Revelstoke. The question of transportation into that district is one,' in
which every business man "in town is
directly interested and it is one, which
thpy should set themselves to help to
solve with rather'more, energy than
they have hitherto t*xpeneit~d- upon it.
As soon as incorporation is obtained
one of the first cjuestions, which should
be put before the people, will be the
desirability of this town giving some
direct aid to a permanent steamboat,
service as far as L*iporte.. The Big
Bend is quite obviously one of thosa
cases in which facilities of transputt
will have to precede development,'
tind this place will have to spend
money in order to make money in the
In the districts tributary to Revelstoke in the east two events have been
most prominent in the history of the
season, the paitial closing dowti of the
-Lanark"anel-the-opening "up���of���the
North Fork section by the construction of the wagon road and the operations on the Waverley. While it was
an unfortunate tiling that the Horne-
Payne syndicate found it necessary lo
suspend a large proportion of their
work at Laurie, yet it is very well-
known that their decision was in no
way due to any defect in the property itself, but simply to tho way iu
which the mine has been handled-*
There neied be no misgivings, lest under more careful and scientific management the Lanark will not again
come to the front among the shipping
mines of West Kootenay. Thu operations up the North Fork of the lllecillewaet by the important English
company represented by Mr. Grant-
Govan and of the Waverley mine under Mr. John Grant cannot fail to
bring North Kootenay prominently
before the notice of London capitalists. Botli the Waverley and Tangier
are fully answering under development to the high expectations, which
tbe extraordinary richness of their
surface indications had led tbe owners
to form.
Taking it altogether the retrospect
of the season in the Big Bend and Illecillewaet districts is very gratifying,
and gives great promise of increased
activity next season. The new discoveries will sti utulate propecting, and
it may be noted in this connection
that there is an enormous area scarcely examined at all, while the capital
already operating will reveal, as the
Herald confidently expects, the permanent character of the extraordinary surface indications of the country
and induce other investors to take
hold of the field awaiting them. With
one lamentable exception, the wild cat
company has been conspicuous by its
absence and mining has been pursued,
so far as it has gone, as a business,
and not as an opportunity for gambling in shares.   Development litis been
steady and solid, mid we havo nothing
l,e> dread, but everything tt; hope for,
in our anticipations of llie piohuble,
course of events iu tin; future.

The Canadian Pharm.areiilicfil Journal and Gazette contains the following
answer to a conespondent asking if
the undermt.-'iiUemed prescription contains incompatibles. The answer is of
interest in its bearing on the Sheard
inquest. "Liq. strych li drs.. Tr. cap-
sici i drs.. Pot. brom. 2 drs.. Kola cordial 2 oz., Aq. ad -t oz.. Ft. mistnra.
Sig., 2 drs. every three bonis." Bro-.
nudes anel alkaloids are incompatible.
In this case you will have formation
of strychnine hydrobromide, which
would be precipitated, but as the kola
cordial contains a large proportion of
alcohol, the new compound may remain in solution, as twelve to fifteen
per cent, of alcohol is sufficient to elo
this. Another ift'compatability is that
between tannic acid ami alkaloids; in
this case you muv have ieaction between the kolu-tannic acid and the
strychnine sedation. For security this
mixture* should not be dispensed without a "shake " label.

SILVER  The. outlook for silver is becoming' decidedly brighter. * The  - Bank of England does not appeal'  to have been scared either by the  threats or the cheap ridicule of  t!������e gold party-and its rabid press-,  and will evidently carry out the  intention lately announced.by its  governor to use silver for a portion  of its note reserve. The opposition  of a large section of the people and  press of Great Britain to the white  metal seems to theoutsideobserver  inexplicable. The name of silver  has only to be mentioned and  certain papers become insane.  Their hands go np in horror, real  or assumed, Me-..| iheir vocabularies  are searched for the most opprobrious epithets to hurl, at the  miserable traitor, the dangerous  revolutionist, the enemy of "sound  finance," who dares to suggest that  silver should be given a decent  show. These papers, - and. the  millionaire gold bugs they pander  to, know that silver has been  placed under the ban by the  majority of the so called enlightened nations of the- world,-  but nothing will satisfy them" but  *its complete anihilation. They  *"k*iow, but will not admit, that  silver is as useful a money metal as  sold, and yet, not satisfied with  the action of the lending nations  in closing their mints to its iree  coinage, they are now fighting  tooth and nail to prevent the  Bank of England from doing what  the law and common sense allows  it, namely holding a fifth of-its  reserve in silver.  The Daily News of the 4th  instant' in its financial, article  refers to the rumor that au active  ---correspondence--=---is--^-proceeding-  between the home aud Indian  governments and that the concessions to America will include  the holding of one-fifth of the  Bank of England's reserve in  silver, raising the amount of the  legal tender of silver coin from ������2  to ������25 and reopening the Indian  mints and says: '.'I*- i.s very much  to be desired that au end should  be put to the present mischievous  agitation and its attendant  disquieting reports."  The most effective way to put an  end to the "mischievous agitation"  is to treat the silver cause with  the simple justice to which it is  entitled, that: is, restore it to its  old time standing by opening the  mints to its fiee coinage at a  reasonable ratio with gold. At  the present stage of the game  silver is depressed owing to unfair  and oppressive legislation. Allowing it to be coined, and giving it a  status as legal tender, at a ratio  which would niakc������ say 18 or.,20  ounces of silver "equal to one  ounce, of gold, would once more  restore the ; balauce by making  money more plentiful, by encouraging the important industry, of  silver mining, and last ���������but,;,not  least by putting an end to the  "mischievous agitation" which  daring the past few years has done  so much to unsettleboth commerce  and politics.

Invention of a Montreal Militiaman���������A  Missle That Will Quickly Stop an  Enemy  Montreal Star: At St. Helen's Island  on Thursday. Colonel Lake, the Quartermaster-General of . the Canadian  militia, witnessed, a test of anew bullet invented by a member ot ono of the  local militia corps. The bullet, fired  from a Lee-Enfield rifle at a joint _of  beef, tore open a wound at the'point  of the inpaet fully four -inches across  and two inches deep. That the bullet  was not unduly weakened by the  special treatment was demonstrited  by the fact that it shattered a large  bone in the middle of the joint, and,  passing out, flattened itself on some  stones in the rear. The Militia Department will conduct a series of experiments with the new bullet.  One of the most perplexing problems  before the military men of the -worlel  at the present time is to provide a bullet for the new long-distance rifles  with which all the armies of the great  powers are armed which will stop an  enemy on hitting him. For years the  minds of military men have been devoted to the provision of weapons and  ammunition to carry missiles to the  full limit of distinct vision. Success  has practically, been attained in this  regtird, but now that rifles have been  invented that will carry a certain bullet as far as a man can see distinctly,  the unpleasant fact has been revealcel  that though one of these bullets mav  go through three or four men and still  keep on its course, the wounded men  -will-not.be chuckecLbuLuiight_k_"ep on.  fighting for halE an hour even after receiving fatal wounds. ~*"ow, in a battle the object in shooting an enemy is  to put .him hors-de-combat at once.  There is no object attained in filling  him full of bullet holes if he can continue the fight on his own part  even though he may succumb to  hemorrhage the next hour. The increase in the velocity has gradually  reduced'llielr stopping power. The  old smooth bore with an extreme  range of .a couple of hundred yards  made a ghastly wound in a man. ar.d  if the bullet did not reach a vital spot  it promptly put the man out of action.  A gunner in A Battery H.C.A. wounded by a round bullet from a fowlinfr  piece at the action of Fish Creek in  13S5 told a correspondent half an hour  afterwards that when hit it was as  though a red hot cricket ball had hit  him and forced an entrance into hi3  body.  The shock was so severe that lie spun  round on his feet and fell senseless lo  the ground. In a few weeks he wns  discharged'cured.> Another gunner in  the same battery.".wounded in 1.111���������  same action by a Winchester rifle bullet, merely' fe'lt a stinging sensation  when struck, and kept.his place in the  ranks for some time, not realizing that  he had been seriously wounded until  the effect of the he-mmorhtigo began  to be felt. -The old military bullet was  of soft lead with a hollow base, the-  sides of'which were "set tip"or expanded outwards anel pressed into the  grooves of the rifle. The bullet itse-If  conseeiuently lired at a high or low-  velocity, was sufficient to make a painful and stopping wound. The nesw  rifle uses a long slender bullet or shaft,  the lead being encased in a thick covering of nickel.. When it hits a man  he haidly feels it unless a bone is  struck, so minute and clean cut a-  wound does it make. During the  Chitralcampaign some prisoners were  captured with as many._ as three nnel  four bullet wounds through their  bodies and they were still fighting  when captured.  yearly per head and the death rate to  20'OS per-annum per 1,000 of the population; for France both the drink rate  and the'dealh rate we're considerably  higher. -The death rate wtis 21-Of. It  may be taken that the Canadian death  rate was, in proportion to population,  equal to about two-thirds of the average death rate of the principal European nations, and her drink rate to'  about one third of Iheit drink rate.  It is possible that the age distribution may account, to some extent for  the abnormal smalliiess of their rate  of mortality. No doubt it does but  nol to any great extent. 1 am convinced thill the sniallucss of the drink  rate is the main factor, fn this 'connection it is important to note that  Quebec the province of Canada in  which the temperance movement has  made the least progress, has by much  the highest rate of mortality. For the  ten years in cjucslion it averaged 1S!)1  per 3.POO per .���������minim, or -1 00 per 3.C0IJ  more than Canada as a whole. Its  drink rate yearly was the equivalent  in absolute alcohol of I'-loti gallon of  proof spirits. Of course, as Quebec  drank so much more llitin the average, the rest ot Canada must, have  consumed consideeably   lejis   than the  average.   -o~-   THE CANADIAN ACCENT  CANADA'S   LIGHT   DRINK RATE  Air. James Whyte?, of the United  Kingdom Alliance*, says in (he Times:  Canada has. I believe, the lightest  drink rate and also the lightest death  rate of any nation in Christendom.  For the ten years ending 1S0O her  death rate was only 34'01 per 1000 of  population living, and her drink was  the equivalent in absolute alcohol of  P14'.) gallons of prrof spirits per head  per annum. For England for these  same ten years, the drink rate was  equal to 3'S90 gallons of  projf spirits  AS IIKAItn RV AS ENC'LI"~"~IA>'.  An Eng[ish visitor, wilting from  Montreal tb the St. James's Gazette,  savs :  The Canaelian accent sounds American at first to English ears, though a  difference is soon perceptible. To  American ears  the dilTf-rence  is  very  _nr.'jMh ��������� .1 K(^r_or>j_.  fr.nr)_rt T_ A J.,^,r_. ������ tr J^l*^_  resemblance, but that is all nonsense.  Granted that the two ate distinct, yet  the! Canadian speech is neater to American than it is to English, anel the fvict  is rather a disagreeable surprise. Xo  doubt theie arc vari.al ion-s. Xova  Scotia and HritUh Columbia have  much le.-s of the* tv/ang than Ontario;  but the Central Province, with all deference to the others, must be taken a*,  the most representative It is. th"  richest ar.d the most populous, anel ii  is almost wholly I!rit!!;h. At any rate,  the city of Toronto is, and there all  classrs, except tbe highest, revel in a  highly-seasoned form of Ame������rie'ane*oe>.  They call ,their town "Terahnto," ns  near as spelling can make it. which is  not very near, but n sufTiciemt inelica  tion; they do not say "thei second turn  ing to the right,'' or"a hundred yards  further on," but a "hlocknnaliaf;"  "lift" is''-levator;'" "tram" w "sire-tit  car;" a hag is a grip : and "right here'  occurs every third sentence.  1 am not cavilling these* expressions  except "elevator." which is an indefensible subililute for "lift,'' f merely  mentinn them ns specimens of the  Canadian vernacular, and they are'  certainly AniericniiPSP. Any number  might be given, fn the Slates great  ingenuity has .lie-en cxponded on the  invention of terms tlilforentiatintr the  language* from English, and tho Canadians have; c.m^ht them all.  They al.-o u=e the Yankee: inflections, and no little of the Yankee  twang. The lower you go in society  tho more marked'is the* tendency.  Yet the Cin.idian accent is quite different, from the Ameriran. even among  the lower classes. The more one gets-  accustomed to it the more plainly one  hears the difference. It is broader, less*  sharp anel pinched, and, f must'' ad'I,  much less tlistinct. Of all the forms  of speech I have ever heard, that of  the common Canadians is the most indistinct.  There is, in short, a Canadian accent  compounded of Yankee and Droael  English, ft, is not, pretty and makes  ��������� he voices of the women very harsh.  To an English ear it is so strange; as to  seem quite foreign, and that impression is heightened by the pains the*  natives take to leWyou know that  your English is strange to them.

DISCUSSED IN LONDON  THE   FINANCIAL   NEWS  DEALS  WITH THE CALGARY ROUTE  CITY VERSUS COUNTRY  SILVER  MjVNCHEstkk, October 0.���������Members'  of the Royal Kxchango are memorializing the Government to entry out its  pledges to establish a sin pie par of  exchange between gold and silver and  suggesting a compromise between the  extreme.views of. both parlies..

The opinion pi'evails.generally that  residents in cities .are ,a less healthy  class than those who live in the country,-but statistics do not sustain this  view. Country people, it i.s true,  should possess the better physical development, and the fact that the reverse is ejuite often the case is proof of  their disregard of hygiene rather than  of tho advantageous conditions of city  life." In other words, there can .be  little doubt that with equally intelligent observance of the laws of' health,  tho country would win in the competition of hone and brawn.  Few of those who live in cities realize what benefits thoy enjoy in the  way of scientific cookery and ample  market resources. The cuisine ot the  farmer is so limited that his household  falls into.'a dietary routine which is  monotonously unhealthful. Different  sections have* their own characteristic  peculiarities, but, everywhere the frying pan and its dripping, indigestible  products hold first place. Tho experience of city peoplo who go occasionally to the country disproves the boasted superiority of rur.il cookery. The  farmer's wife rarely advance's beyond  tne limits her mother set before "her,  and in most instances the v.ai ied demands upon her time and strength  render her unable to give proper care  to the preparation of food. On the  other hand the urban family has the  .widest scope in the select ion of edibles,  and the sources of the food supply are  watched by nitiuicipal specialists, who  are quick to trace the relation of cause  and effect between tainted milk or  water and n. rise in the death rate.  Then, again, the competition among  producers��������� is���������so���������-lceen-5-that--tbe-  grcat city markets are loaded with the  best of everything eatable.  There is another consideration which  is potent in turning the hygienic balance in favor ot the eif.y. Oddly  enough, this is the question of ventilation. One would suppose that people  brought up in the open air would appreciate the value of well Ventilated  rooms, but as a rule they do not. Most  of U3 have;been in farm /houses wheie  the outer air has been rigorously excluded. In some that we have "seen  the window frames had been deliberately sealed down with a thick coat of  pi'i'lit, which from easily gathered  evidence had not "been disturbed for  years.  The statement that country life possesses .superior possibilities of health  finds jbojiflrmation in the tecognized  fucl-Wuit rural infants are hardier and  better conditioned than their city  cousins.' On the ,other hand, among  .the applicants for admission at a number of women's colleges, the city girls  show better.averages, in health and  physical development than the candidates from the country. If this is fair  evidence���������and it would be easy to multiply instances���������it appears th.at country people, starting in life with better  promise for good health, quickly fall  behind in comparison with city folks  simply because they fail to observe the  elementary principles of hygiene.  pearly all children today are taught  a smattering of hygiene, and it is to  be honed that each successive generation will possess a. more .abiding sense  of the necessity of eating'1 tjie right  things at the right times, and breathing the best kind of air at all times.  When these conditions ��������� are fulfilled,  we (shall expect to see a standard of  physical development among funnel's  ���������ind dwellers in country towns superior to that of city people,  An additional number of men are  wanted on the Crow's Nest Piikm railway, and as inducement the contractors intimate that no transmutation  fare will be deducted from the men's  wages.

Ry.���������A Hint That Jim Hill May  - be Approached to  Extend the Railway South.  The Calgary-Yukon route is already  attracting attention in England, as  the following article from the Financial News,   of   September   22nd,  will  show:  "CALGARY TO CLONDYKE  The 'Canadians mid the Americans  are playing a game of blulf wilh each  other over ���������Clondike, and the Canadians may be safely barked to "come  out on top," as they say across the  Atlantic. Tliere is no longer a doubt  that the now goldfields are in -Canadian territory. The Americans may  discover others for themselves on their  own side of the i-boundary,.but: they  have hud to give up theii' threatened  claim l.o any of those .already found.  Still they hold all "the ' exisiing gate-  eviiys into the Yukon country, and,  apparently, thoy mean to make the  must of that advantage. At Dyea and  Skagway Bay they are enforcing the  Dingley tariff to its utmoi-t rigour  against the gold hunters, so many of  whom are rushing to certain destruction. On every horse thev take in  with iheni they are charged $30, and  many horses have had to be left behind in conseeiuence of their owners  having no $30 lo spare. Naturally, the  Canadians are sore at the unneighbor-  ly treatment they are receiving, and  opportunities of (jetting even* with  Undo S.im are not. likely to be neglected. It has been proposed to revise  the Clonelike regulations and disqualify foreigners from holding claims.  Seeing that most of the existing claims  aie in the hands of Americans, that  would be hard on them. Less aggressive means of retaliation are likolz to  be favored. A very effective one  would be to open a purely Canadian  route into the Yukon country���������ono  avoiding Alaska altogether, and keeping out. of the way of tho Dingley  tariff. That may look at first sight  far from easy, as the distances by the  shortest trails from possible starting  points on tho Canadian Pacific range  from 1.200 to 1,500 "miles. But the  journey need not be all made by land.  The great rivers and lakes of the  North West may be utilized for water  carnage, sometimes for several hundred miles at p. stretch.  The Dominion Government has had  under consideration this question of  an all Canadian route to the Yukon,  and is Fending *ont an experimental  expedition, which will be followed  with interest." It starts afc Edmonton,  tho northern terminus of the Calgary  and Edmonton railway, a feeder of the  Canadian Pacific. " Should a practicable route be found the railway will, il  is said, In-, extended from Edmonton  lo tho Athabasca, along the Hudson  Bay Company's trail. From the  'Athabasca the next stage would bo to  the Lesser Slave hike where another  Hudson's Bay Company's trail would  be struck going to, the Nelson River,  from which woiild'be an easy journey  to the Peace River, then to the Pelly  and down to the Yukon. This route  is known to old trappers, one of whom  vouches for its being not merely practicable, but comparatively easy. Several parties of Ganadians are to try it  next spring.i and it is hoped before  I hen to hear a good-account of the  Pioneer expedition being sent out by  lhe Government. A railway or even  a wagon road to Athabasca would reduce the journey to about 1,100 miles,  of which 000 miles would be by land  and the final 200 miles an easy flout  down Pelly liver to Clondike.  While this scheme if it can be >real-  ized, will be an immense stroke for  Canada and a great boon to the Clou-  dike Argonauts, it may also cheer the  hearts of certain ^English investors who  have not been in luck's way of late.  The Calgary and Edmonton Railway,  though built by Canadians, was financed in London, and most of. tile bonds  with wliich it was built are still held  here. They were issued six or seven  years ago to the amount of ������1,100,000,  and though they b^ad no direct .guarantee from the Canadian Pacific, they  had a traffic agreement which was  supposed to be almost as good. The  latter company undertook to work  and maintain the road at its own risk  up to July 1, 1S93, reserving to itself  whatever net earnings there might be.  So well did the Canadian Pacific think  of the prospects ot the rosid that it  acquired the right to pay off tho bonds  at 110 on July 1, 1S96, and it obtained  .an Act of the Dominion Parliament,  empoweiing it to olfer its own fourper  cent, debenture stock in exchange for  them. In the prospectus of the fiist  .issue in 1S90 the above facts were' set  forth in such a way as to imply that  the line was being built practically  for the Canadian Pacific;.;' and. doubtless.if it lind fulfilled the expectations  of its builders" -it; would -have'- been  Canadian Pacific property ere now.  On July 1, ISOQ. when the right of  redemption at 110 matured'it was not  exercised, and a sharp fall took place  in the bonds. At the same time they  came to the end of their Government  annuity, which ensured to them their  full six"per cent, up to th? end of the  first Canadian Pacific lease (July 1,  1896). They had, fortunately, another  Government subsidy to fall back on���������  the SSO.OIO per -annum which was  really a disguised bonus, though set  down as payment in advance for postal  services. That subsidy still continues,  and will go on till the maturity of the  bonds in 1910. It ensures a 1* per  cent, dividend till 1010, while the" new  lease for five years entered into with  the Canadian Pacific gives the Calgary  And isdinput~n all the surplus earnings  it may produce.  The lessee of tho line in effect guarr  aulees its woiking expenses, and  hands over all its-'surplus earnings  a <.very comfortable arrangement for  the bondholders. The Canadian Pacific admittedly did not make much of  the first lcise, as a large portion of the  net earnings had to be spent on raising  the physical conditions of the road.  The new lease, however, is yielding  much better results, and, in fact, very  encouraging ones. The net for July  just announced "exceeds ������0,000, and  raises the aggregate for the nine  months of the current year to 855,'100  ���������fully double the aggregate of the  corresponding period last year. These  were the dullest months of tbe North-  , Western year, and the next three will  have tho moving of an exceptionally  good wheat crop. Only $8,000 per  month will be needed up to the end of  October to raise the. net earnings of  tho road to the same amount as lho  Government subsidy, namely, $80,000.  The divisible balance of $1(10,000 thus  foreshadowed would pny three por  cent, on the bonds.  But their futur; possibilities are neit  limited to a e|iiestion of niero   yield.  The essence of their value continues  to be What itwasoriginiilly���������the prospect ot their being abbot bed by the  Canadian Pacific. That question was  not settled last year, but merely postponed. It will have* to be settled, however, before the Canadian Pacific commits itself to: llio proposed extension  from Edmonton to Athabasca. Tho  new '.traffic thereby thrown tin tho  existing road would e:i*-ily niiso its net  earnings to'more than li per cent, on  tho outstanding bonds. Rumors of a  contemplated deal with the bondholders may not, therefore, be floaLing  about for nothing. Tho road is of  more use to the Canadian Pacific than  to anybody else, but il has a second  string to its bow, also. Ils southern  section, from Calgary to Macleod,traverses a famous ranching couutry and  connects with an American road into  Montana, whicli strikes tbo Gieat  Northern at Shelby Junction. This,  though no't much of a lint* at present,  might, in the hands of a pushful  American like President Hill, tap to  some pnrpose one of the Canadian  Pacific's best preserves. Sir William  Van Home is doubtless alive to the  importance of shutting him out. - The  Calgary and Edmonton is nol between  two stools, but between two liv.al  suitors, and its fate cannot remain  much longer m suspense.  THE RED COATS  OF THE PRAIRIES  The following tribute appeajs in  Seiibners: "The irnmaculateness in  the uniform of the British soldier  known as the North West Mounted  Policeman, beyond Regina always  impressive becomes doubly so in the  careless rough and tumble west. One  would think that the example set by  the Indian and the cowboy iind the  rancher, in the way of negiige attire,  would be too much lo withstand, and  that-oflicors would forget caste distinctions and fraternize with the privates out of sheer loneliness and need  of human companionship; but the discipline of the English army is maintained in all its integrity at the foot of  the Rocky mountains, and the "Eyes  r-rightl" and "Attention!" are as grim  as at Aldershot, and the men as well  uniformed and disciplined as though  they were under tho eye of g'eneral  Lord Wolseley himself."  When we reached Fort Macleod we  were, more than ever impressed hy  this. There were long neat rows of  officers quartets, and a big guard  room,- and the Union Jack floating  from the big mast, and privates to be  seen in brilliant tunics and "pill  boxes," or sometimes, as a concession  to the fierceness of the sun,a sombrero  tied on under the short black hair wil h  a string, just as the Harrow boys wear  their sailor hats. And when wo had  loft Fort Macleod and driven, 35 miles  straight west over-'the prairie,"with  the Rockies always ahead of ui, radiant in the afternoon sun. and reached  the little detachment where we were  to spend two months, we found the  same thing there���������order and discipline  ���������in miniature, it is true, but, as rigid  and as effective as if it had to do with  a t liousaud men instead of six or eight.  Perhaps it is this untiring vigilance  and discipline thai makes the North  West Mounted Police such a power in  tho country over which thev are  scattered ��������� lhat is from Regina  to the Rockies, south to the international boundaty line, and north to  Edmonton and Prince Albert. Or  more probably it is because a great  many of its 1,000 men are gentlemen  by birth and education, and who,  through some fault o__f___their_o_*-vn__pi'_  fate or circumstances, .have-lost their  birthright and the opportunity of using their education." ..So "they became  machines of the Canadian "government  iind the Queen, through'llert* Governor-  General acting through his Minister of  the Interior by way of the Commissioner at Regin.a, gives him a regimental number,and a Leo-Metford rifle  and fifty cents a day to start with, and  he studies his Manual of Anns and invents a new name for himself arid  tries to forget who he once was. Sometimes he succeeds and sometimes ho  cIops not. ,  Perhaps it is the scarlet of the police  orderly and the Union Jack floating in  tho breeze over the barracks that  makes everything seem so English;  or.perhaps it is the political discussions  of the Liberals and Conservatives, anel  the bursts of patriotism towards the  Queen, and the talk of the young  ranchers of their clubs in London as if  they we're only a mile away, anel with  the voic~ and > accent one last 'heard  there.

The calculations ol astronomers extending over many years have fixed the  weight of the earth at 0,000,000,000,(100.-  000,000, or six thousand and sbty-niue  quintillion tons.  A well known statistician, ,T. Tlolt  Schooling, endeavors to make the meaning of the figures cleavciyby various devices, such us shovelling the eaith off  into space, weighing it with the moon  and so forth.  In the cut shown hero tho earth is  compared with the moon. It may thus  bo seen that our planet,.weighs as much  as seventy-eight moons.'
