ADVERTISING FAKES  If there is one subject more than another calculated to supply the average  newspaper man's scanty leisure with  food for reflection it is the marvellous  facility, with which lhe crowd of advertising fakirs that lientl on one another's .heels through the country win  the shekels froin the unsuspecting public. From the man, who wants the  council to subsc-ribo $500 for 10,000  copies of the Chicago .Hustler".with ti  write-up of the town in it. to the, enterprising individual who is filling up  a card, containing 11 portrait of the  mayor, with advertisements, they get  what they'want with invaiiable success. To say that all this money is  merely wasted would be lo use a  euphemism. It is worse, because expenditure on legitimate advertising,  which would be of benefit all round, is  curtailed in order to even up on the  total expended in this direction,and the  local newspaper, wliich spends" every  cent it makes in the locality, and gives  away several hundred dollars worth of  free advertising every year, suffers,  while these travelling fakirs collect  their money and skip to be seen no  more. Men will often sptmcl more  money in perfectly useless methods of  advertising in one year from - Christ-  almanacs do.vn to any scheme which  the perambulating fakir has the impudence to propose, "than would get  them out a handsomely printed circular, containing a price list of their  entire stock.  One of these gentry was round this  town last week getting a letter head  for use in.the hotels, on the back uf  which a description of the town was  to be'printcil, whicli description as he  wrote it, the HERALD is able to give  verbatim: - -       .  "- ��������� ���������    REVELSTROKE, B.C.  A town'of 1500 inhabitants pleasent-  ly situated on the Columbia River, the  clistriliiting point for the -Big Bend  country on the noith, Trout Lake, Lar-.  dean und Kootany on the-.south, besides Albert Canyon nnd.several.other  districts'that is rapidly coming "to"' the,  front. Being situated on the C. P. K.  and Columbia river, ..Revelstroke has  rail and .-steamboat collections to nil  points, making; the town the"' headquarters for mining., men and..mining  suplips. -Than? are -now fifteen new  buildings in course! of construction, of  white*' the Cowan Block and Court  House are tho principal, the Court  House is estimated at $12,500, Imperial Bank, capitalized at $2,000,030.  Four fine churches, large school house,  government buildings. Fine C. P. R.  road house. Than* heing the one of  the most eompleete water and execlric  light sisioms in the west," street car  line to start soon, telephone conections  tcwill parts_of_the city. Seven hue  hotels, three"-drtig~stores-'ten���������large  huisiness houses or stores giving the  people all the conveninces of a modern  town.'proving lhe place to be on a  solid substantial basis and to have a  bright future. Keep your eye on  Revelstroke.  For the sake of the town itself the  man was supplied with another description in decent English tind with  the name spelled properly, but' to the  credit of the common sense of our  business men they failed to go into  his scheme.  The Herald quotes the above description to call attention to the impudence of some of the fakes, which  are attempted to be foisted on the  public. They may not be all quite as  bad in point of spelling and composition, but on the score of useless-  ness they are all about on a par. They  should be severely let alone. All the  legitimate advertising that a* retail  house wants to do can be done to the  very best advantage in the columns of  the local press.

Terrible Smash up of Two Freight  Trains the Other Side of Tappcn  Siding.���������One Man Killed and Two  Seriously Injured.���������Tramps -Suspected  of Letting One of the. Trains Go.  At 7:33 on Thursday eveding last a  collision occurred on the easte-rn slope  of Notch Hill about two miles west of  Tappen siding and seventy' twei miles  from Revelstoke, which- resulted in  the death of one'man, and serious,  though not possibly .fatal injuries to two others'." Kolch  Hill siding is si tutted right at  the summit of a long slope from borh  east and west.. There is a"telephone  station there at the switch, which is  on the north side .of the track and a  boarding hoiisc on the south side situated east of and a little way below the  east end of the switch.,There fcscarce-  ly-six car lengths .of flat at the summit  before the slope begins each way. No.  301 coming easthad brought her freight  train np in two suctions ��������� and the train  crew had left the train 011 the main line  and gone to .the hotel for supper. She  was to cross 591,'a * passenger engine  with _a special freight, going west,' at  Notch Hill"and one half of the westbound train was already ntlhe summit  on the siding, and the engine h<itl  gone back "to - fetch -.up the second  section'. Before leaving the e.istbound  train lu*r crew had summarily ejected  four tramps. While at supper, they  were startled by the noise of the train  in motion and rushed out tn catch a  glimpse of her rushing 'past at full  steam. The nest point at which she  wns heard of was two miles west of  Tnppim's Siding and about half a mile  from the foot of the'etistei;n slope of  the, hill. -Here No. 501 .wns slowly  proceeding up the.hill at about eight  miles an hour with the sedpnd section  'of.Jier .train. .'About. 75 yards.,ahead  "of her .was'a"'curve. concealing the* line  beyond from view. Rciund this at  full -speed -.with," all" the momentum  gathered in si rii'Ii of seven miles down  grade came No. 301. Theie was not a  moment for escape." The two trains  crashed into each other with fearful  force, reducing the two engines into a  shapeless ina������s of scrap iron  and' piling cars up, three and  four on top of each other. Geo Brun-  drelt, the front brakesmaiv received  injuries of wliich he died in there  hours. Engineer Geo.

A wrecking train  with Supt. Beasley and Doctors Maclean and McKechnie on board left here  on receipt of the-news, but arrived to  find that the injured men had been  conveyed to Kamloops. - The conductor ami the rear brakesman escaped  without hurt. Both Brown and Hume  are married men and resident.; of  Kamloops. The body of Geo. Brun-  drett was taken*through on today's  No. 2 for' iutt-riuent at Donald, Engineer Brundrett, his brother, went  with it. t     ���������  It is supposed that in revenge for  being put olf the train the tramps took  the opportunity of the gathering dusk,  und the absence of the train crew, to  climb on the engine, throw open the  throttle and let her go down grade.  It is stated that they were seen on the  engine by residents at the siding.  Several tramps have been arrested,  who wex-e in tho vicinity at the time  of the accident.  THOMSON'S    LANDING  An  Interesting  Budget  of   News  from  the Lardeau.  l-'roin Our Own Correspondent.   ~_  Thomson's Landing, Sept. 17.���������Mr.  T. E. llcirne came in from the north  fork of the Lardeau yesterday, anti  left for Itevelstoke today. He hits been  developing two claims that had a very  fine surface showing, the Black  Warrior and the Eva May adjoining  claims on the same lead. He ran a  tunnel in the* lead 25 foet. and has bee.11  in ore all the way. Tho lead is 12 feet  wide and shows at the end of the tunnel 2 feet of clean shipping ore that  assays from 150 to 300 ozs. silver anel  810 in gold. Mr. Home expects to be  able to ship considerable ore from  these claims next summer.  Messrs. J. A. and V. T. Lade arrived from Kiibln today.. The ' returns  from the sampling works of the 2 tons  shipped have been already published  in your paper. They are so highly  pleased with the result, and well they  may be, that they are going to try and  ship till they can before winter sets in.  They*showed me all their assays from  the various samples sent out, the highest, of which went $11 ."Il to the ton.  They had the button from this assay  in a small vial and- it appeared to he  about as large as 10' grains of , wheat.  From present appearances this is  going lo be the great gold mine of'B.  C. * ���������  Mr. II. 3. Stewart, manager for the  Trout Lake Mining_Co., returned from  tt visit to Portland today. The shareholders in this company visited the  mine and were well pleased with the  amount of work done unil the amount  of high grade ore in sight. '���������'  Mr. Geo. Goldsmith while doing the  assessment work on E. W. Nettle-Ion's  claim on Boyd creek struck a body ot  very high'grade galena and copper  ore. Mr. Goldsmith bro.Ui_.lit from  this claim as rich looking specimens  as any galena ore that has been  brought in this summer. - - * - ,"  i_Tho> Horne-Payne Co. seem to ,be  veiy'"/fickle" in'.'tlioir'-thanageinent:  Aftery working two. gangs -of men on  the Galena Bay road for borne days  they suddenly quit work "and - paid off  the men. Various reasons are assigned for this course, but probably the  chief reason is that. they can have  their oi-e hauled cheaper by Thomson's  as they can save a 10 mile haul in the  found trip.  . Those interested in the big gold lend  near the Landing are still unsatisfied  with the results obtained so far, and  are going out today to do more .work  on the lead in the hope of striking a  Ticirpay^treak^i~de"r-the~cappingrt"':^=  The Bald Mountain Co. Strike it Rich,  For some months past the Bald  Mountain Mining and Development  Co. have been quietly carrying on  development work on their group of  ten claims on Bald Mountain, about  six miles south of Donald ; and now  comes the news thet the company's  efforts have been crowned with success  Last year considerable work was done  on the claims and a pack trail was  constructed from to the property.  This year a tunnel 175 feet in length  has been run, Mr. E. Kenny, of Golden, being in charge of the work. Last  week Mr. Kenny succeeded in reaching  the lead and at last report had cut  into it some five feet and was still  going through quartz, samples from  which he forwarded to officers of the  Company. We have not yet learned  from the; officials the returns received  from the assaycrs but it is said that  the assay was very high in free-milling  gold.���������EastKootcn.-iy Miner.  RICHES OF STEWART RIVER  Quartz and Placer in this  Vast   Unexplored Region.  Mr. Attliur Jordan, a young Scotchman, is trying to bring the gold fields  of Stewart river before the notice of  the Spokane public. In conversation  with a Chronicle reporter he said recently.  " I have como lo Spokane to interest  the business men here in opening up  that country around the Stewart river  and at the same time shew them the  advantages iu diverting the rush now  going on into the Klondike country by  way of Seattle, to the Ashcroft route.  "I think I can safely assert without  fear of contradiction that I am the only  white man outside of the Hudson Bay  men, lhat ever set foot onto the headwaters of the Stewtii-t river. .In 1SS." I  first set out to explore* the vast country  up north, starting out by way' of the  Priest river. After a long journey consuming many 111011 ths I came out tit the  headwaters of the Stewart river, where  I fell in with the Minnenooas, a hostile  tribe of Indians of about 300 bucks. 1  made friends with these Indians aud  resided among .them for four years,  learning to speak their language fluently. They are still hostile to the whites  and will not allow their country to be  invaded by them. I left the tribe in  1SS9 and came back into civilization,  going back there on a -trip again last  year.  During the four years that I spent  i.p there I devoted myself to mining  but little, as I took no interest in it,  but I roamed the country over hunting  anel exploring. In so doing,-however,  I could not but help realize what a  vast and rich mineral section that was.  The last year I spent there i took out  $5,000 in gold from a small stream tri-  butaiy to the Stewart, rf.nd the last  trip I made up there I cleaned up $1,-  300 in a few .weeks. " What attracted  uie most, though, was the rich quartz  that I found in the vast mineral belt-to  the east of Teslin lake and river. It is  all free milling and so rich in gold that  ifXwas to tell you \vhat it went in  gold yoiw readers" would not believe it.'  I am going up there this__fall to locate  a number of quartz claims in advance  of the rush next spring."  Mr. Jordan drew a rough sketch of  the Ashcroft trail and explained its advantages over the Alaska routes. He  said that from Ashcroft a gooel wagon  road was followed for over 200 mile!*,  when a broad trail was taken to Ft. St.  James, on Stewart lake, 100 miles further. At the upper end of the lake the  trail continued 180 miles to llazelton  and 60 miles to Telegraph creek," and  continuing about 130 miles  to _Teelin  The Stranded Steamer  A Trail despate-h - to the Rossland  Miner says: No further efforts will  be made to pull the strandeel steamer  Nakusp into the Columbia river. Shi*  will havo to be raised by jack screws,  placed on skids and launched again.  The combined efforts of the engines of  the steamers Nakusp, Trail and Kootenay railed to move th'e Nakusp nioi-e  than a dozen feet, and the river fell so  rapidly that she was soon left high  and dry. The wlieel is now just at the  edge of the channel anil the big boat  _f resting on small rocks, some of  which have almost worked their way  through the bull.  The mishap will prove an expensive  one, and it is likely to cost about "5,000  before the boat is again in the water.  Tho entire crew is still on board, but  sonitJ will be laid off until the Nakusp  is again in service, wich is likely to be  a month or more. The boat will be  raised with jackscrews, and while she  is on the stock she will be generally  ove'-liaiiled. She is 170 feet in length,  weighs about 315 tons and cost in the  neighborhood of $37,000.  ' 'While the Nakusp is undergoing repairs, the steamer Lytton will take her  run. The steamer Trail, which has  been trying to pull the Nakusp oft" the  bench, came down yesterday and made  a trip to Northport, for which place  she brought a quantity of accumulated freight.       _________  No Signs of the Circassian >  Gueenstow*", Sept. 10���������The Cunarcl  line steamer Aurania, from New York  to Liverpool, has signalled that despite  a careful lookout, no signs of the overdue and disabled Circassian has been  seen.  Queensto-wn, Sept. 15���������The White  Star line steamer Germanic, Captain  Maclnstry, from New York September 8th for Liverpool, arrived here tonight and 'reports that though he kept  a careful lookout be saw no sign of  the disabled Anchor liner Circassian.  THE AFGHAN FRONTIER  REPULSE OF BRITISH FORCES  WITH HEAVY LOSS  lake. By^Teisliff liike a 11 d"Tes-liri~river  the journey of about 4-10 miles is made  by water, when a trail is again followed Tor 150 miles to the he-id waters of  the Stewart river. The journey, all  told, from Ashcroft to Stewart river,  he estimated to be about 1,200 miles,  tind it wtis a route so easy of access all  the way that a woman could easily  make the journey.  Another aelvantage by this route, he  says, is that it is open all the year  around, and is easier of travel, if anything, iu the winter than in summer.  Jordan said he could easily make the  round trip to Dawson City and back to  Ashcroft in four months.  He saiel a S'l-wmlll was now operated  at this end of Teslin lake from, which  lumber for building nnel boats could  bo secured. His object in coining to  Spokane, he said, was to feu in a syndicate to put in" a steamer line on  Teslin lako and river for the transporting of gold seekers Jnto the Stewart  river country, and to establish trading  posts along the route, and to also locate mineral claims in that, section, he  to have a certain interest for guiding  the project and locating the claims.  He is submitting his proposition to  the officers of the Spokane chamber of  commerce this afternoou. **  Mr. Jordan expects to take a party  of gold seekers up to the Stewart! river  this fall, starting from Ashcroft about  October 1. He will return in time to  take a still larger party up about February 1st.  m   All the Kootenay money, we are  glad to say, is not going to the Northwest. Mr. W. J. Roper has ai ranged  to send 000 beef cattle down to that  district, in spite of the competition of  more than one Calgary man. The  Yale district is, undoubtedly, particularly blessed. We have a magnificent  fruit country, cattle that will compare  with those of any range in America,  and we are gradually showing that  our mineral wealth is not a whit behind either of these sources.���������Kaiu  loops Sl.iudard.

The Affluents of the Celebrated Stream���������  The Stewart River |is Equally Rich  ���������Quartz as Well as Sand,  V. P.rC. Richardson, late superintendent of the public schools, Seattle,  spent several years in the Yukon country, and the following description ot  the Clondike river and branches given  by him may be of interest.  The Clondike is a stream several  hundred miles long as nearly as can be  estimated (some say 150 miles only)  and for 200 to 300 feet wide, exceedingly  rapid and difficult to navigate by  reason of the swift current and overhanging trees or "sweepers," as they  are called in the district. Its waters  were clear b"fm-e the discovery of  gold, but ti'cy are now muddy from  the wash ui sluice boxes, etc. The  claims are not on the Clondike proper,  but on Bonanza, Hunter, Bear and  other creeks running into the Clondike. The Bonanza empties into the  Clondike about a mile from its junction with the Yukon. Hunter creek is  fourteen miles above, while Eldorado  creek is a branch of the Bonanza. The  stories of the wonderful products of  the river and creeks I have mentioned,  says Mr. Richardson, are not in the  least exaggerated. From what I have  seen of it, I think it has a solid bottom,  good for the next twenty-five years as  afplacer mining country. As soon as  transportation facilities are secured it  will not be a bad country to live in,  Stewart river, further up, in Mr.  Richardson's opinion, is equally rich.  It was prospected in 1SS0 and its bars  panned out as high as $100 to a man in  one day. The river diggings along  Stewart river were only abandoned by  reason of their being so remote from  the base of supplies at the' time. Like  the Clondike, this river has its source  in the Rocky Mountains.  The Rockies in this part of the  Yukon present the same geneial appearance as the Cascade range as seen  _fr_om__-Seattle. The_mountains_have  not been prospected and thev present  an exceedingly attractive field for the  prospector. Mr. Richardson's opinion  is tbat thev not only contain placer  ground but very rich' quartz. fStewart  river is larger than the Clondike, and  will soon be a scene of greater  activity than is now witnessed on the  tributaries of the Clondike.  ONIONS FOR THE MINERS  " Those who go go the Clonelike to  dip tor gold will not be the onlv ones  who will come back with fortunes,"  saiel an ole^army oflicer at an eastern  ciub recently: " People who go up  there with a good legitimate commercial scheme have got a sure tiling and  no risk. I have been thinking ever  since this excitement began what an  unparalleled chance it affords the  i>hrewd man to make fortunes. If I  were only a little younger I would go  myselt. Did it ever occur to vou that  there is a fortune to be made "by some  enterprising man out ol onions up  there in Alaska? Whv, it's a sure  thing, and j-ou will see that somebody  will tbink of it. Any man who will  take a vessel load of onions up the  lukonnssoon as navigation opens up  next spring can come home and retire.  Onions will be worth a nugget apiece  up there next spring. There will be  thousands of people hibernated there  for eight or nine months this winter,  with nothing to eat but "salt horse"  and canned goods, without a mouthful  of fresh fooel auring the whole time,  and by next April most of them will  have a touch ot scurvy.- There is  nothing wh.ch will relieve this terrible  disease so quickly as onions. I have  frequently seen it in the army when  we have been compelled to make long  marches across the western deserts, or  have been fcr long separoted from our  base of supplies and unable to get  fresh vegetables. As soon as we  reached civilization the men would  **,.,*? eatin8 onions, and get direct  relief from them. They are the first  thing sailors always buv when they  come in from a long vov'age. A cargo  of onions landed on th'e Yukon next  spring will literally be worth a fortune  to the enterprising trader who will  take them up there, and would be the  means of saving a good many lives as  well."  ������������������ <.������ .

Tire-plugging is more gn/iertilly used  than the oilier methods, anil is levy  simple. A popular means of inserting a  plug is by pliers especially mailo for the  pm pose. The method of opciation is to  lie a string or (strong thread round the  stem of the.plug; the plug, after having been well lubricated by solution, is  then ginsped by the pliers and forced  into the aperture, head lirst. Tho solution is then squeezed out of the lle.v-  ible tube upon the head of the ping.  The plug is drawn into place by the  thread and cut off even with tho tire.  The double-bonded plug is inserted by  the same instrument, small head innei-  most. The large head nnd adjacent parts  of the tire should bo covered by rubber  solution. After drying, out of contact  with each other, press them toijcthc-i'  and they will adhere.  Another method of inserting a plug is  hy moans of a metal tube with cross  handles. The tube is cut off obliquely  at the lower end. A plug moistened  with a lubiicunt is forced by a bent  piece ot metal into this oblique ei'il.  The tube is then inserted into the puncture and the pricker is forced through  this, expelling tho head of the plug.

HOW  TO  MEND   TIRES.  below its cutter' and is forced through  the punctilio, lly closing the pliers the  bod-piece is drawn up against the cutting edge, so that - a small round di-.c  of lubber is cut out.  A very easy and popular way of mending a puncture is by means of a hollow  stemmed plug nnd a heated wire. The  puncture-hole should first be burnt out  with the heated wire, leaving it ready  for plugging. The wire, still hot or reheated, is then inserted in the stem of  tho plug, to which it will adhere. The  plug, after lubrication, is forced by lhe  wire into the aperture and pulled back  until the head-rests against the inner  lining of the tire. I consider this the  best-metliod-of���������tiro-rcpairiiiB?���������nil���������in-  buming" out tho hole tho ends of tlio  threads aro removed and any tendoncj  to porousness is avoided.  In band-plugging a needle ot about  eight inches, with an end not too sharp  and containing a large perforation, is  used. The noodle is threaded with one  or more bands of India rubber. To introduce a single thickness a small portion of the bantl should project from the  needle's eye. The needle is inserted obliquely and pushed far pi, the band being hold back on the outside until il  snaps out the eye. By carryin'g out this  system any number of bands may be  Introduce*. It t-eoms especially adapted  to punctures of an irregular shape.  A somewhat similar way of doing the  same thing is by means of a noodle  with a small cross-piece and notched  end. A quantity of small cnellcsK banda  are strung upon it, the centre of them  passing over the notched end, nntl their  ends being looped over the cross-piece.  The ' rubber shoulel be considerably  stretched. After lubrication, they are  forced into the tire, and the looped  ends thrown off the cross-piece. The*  noodle is then withdrawn, leaving the  banelsuto be trimmed off as desired. A  needle'" made out of hard wood could be  used in an emergency.  Iu extremely bad cases a patch repair  can be made by the well-known tire  tape. Ar0patch is built up of tip* tape  by cutting'short pieces nnd placing them  transversely to each other." If the cut  is large enough, a patch of this description is placed in the interior of the tpbei  anil presseel firmly against the cut by  forcing the sides of the tubes together.  Another such patch is placed outs.iilo,  and the whole secured by winding the  tire  tape.  Puncture bands are made out of heavy  gum rubber or leather, and are secured  around the tiros by strings, biic!:lt*s. or  tho glove catch. To supply those, if  made ont of leather,*, a rubber patch is  first cemented over tbe puncture on the  outside of the tire and ovpr it the band  is secured. Bands of heavy India rubbox  are wound twice around the tire before  beinz secured, thus producing very perfect tension. In all cases the tire should  be partiallv inflated at the time of mending, so thnt when finally blown up the  tension   Is  Increased,  In mending tires there are two points  to be considered. One is the alleged  porousness of lircs. A sing]"-ln'ip tire  is coinpo������eel of an inner lining���������Ipilia  rubber ������tu rounded by a fabric���������th" latter bedded in anil coated with Inil'a  rubber. The tightness, of Piieh a tirei  depends upon tho soundness of this inner lining. If this is punctured or injured from the inside the air will get  into the fabric and r-ac-ipe iq a quantity  of small stream-:. The tire nny ha*. 1  boon punctured by a nail and then mend-  de so as to be perfectly ticht, jet if  tlie nail lies tone lied the inside fabric  of the opposite side the air will le.t*..  There is no way of finding an inner-  lining puncture*.  Another point relates to patches put  on by the rubber s.jlutie.n, The adherence of these patches docs not depend  upon the oemont-liko action of the robber, but by cohesion. The Mirfaces lo  be fastened together should have two or  thiee coals of tho solution lml be thoroughly dried afler each t-r.ttl, "Vlie-ii  peifoctl) thy the surfaces ntc placed tn-  gi'lher.

The bicycle is itself a new thing, anti it is  not only constantly assuming new expressions, but it is introducing new costumes with bewildering fieqiioney. Among tho lat'ost of the latter. The Sartorial  j\rt Journal illustrates two that are especially prominent. Thoy aie the double-  breasted sacque and the pear-shaped  breeches. The doublo-broastctl sacque has  two expressions that are equally popular.  One of them is that of tho cutaway, the  other that of a short yachting coal. The  poar-shapod breeches are almosl startl-  nigly now, but thoy are so comfortable,  slvlish and well suited for wheeling,  that they promise to become widely popular. '���������  In tho lady's costume shown, the materials represented are a cheviot for the  jacket and skirt, nntl white duck for the  vest. Tho jacket is close-fitting in -the  buck, and moderately short ; the shoulders are of natural width ; the gorge is  low and long, and the fronts, which are  full enough to close at the end of -t roll  of medium length if desiied. aro cut  away with a slight curve to the waist  and boldly rounded to tho bottom. The  sleeves tire" modoititely full at tho top,  below whicli they are shapely. The  edges may be single or double-stitched,  and the scams may bo cord-woltod. press-  eel open and stitched on each side*, or  -finished plain. The vest is single-breasted, has no collar, and is of medium  length. The skirt is short and full, but  is not divided. An Alpine hat, tan-colored gloves aud laced shoes complete the  costume.  The next figure on the plate is a  double-breasted sacquo suit of bird's-eye  homespun. Tho sncqiie is 20 inches long  for a man of average height, ." feet 8  inches. The buttons are 4 1-2 inches  from the edge, and tho fronts arc cut  away with a swoop and boldly rounded  to the bottom. Two breast aud two siele  pockets are patched on, and have the  opening covered with flaps. Tho brooches are the same as riding breeches, with  one-piceo logs, except that they aro a  trillo less pear-shaped. Thoy close ticht-  ly to the log just below the knee with  live buttons, three of which show above  the stocking. A cap of tho material, n  riding stock, km gloves, hand-knit Scotrh  stocking with plain legs and clan tops,  and high or low tan-coleirod or black  shoes complete the costume.

Sir Fred always used a bonr-spear when  on Sir Edward Lugard's staff. He wen*  out of "the den" for a few moments and  returned with the idonticnl weapon. It  had been mended near the spear one]  with -steel clamps, and was pretty he.tvir  and hard, ns the wood was male bamboo.** Sir Fred and a rebel Sowar weie  charging each other. Tho Sowar with  a sabre cut severed the boar-spear, while  Sir Fred, riding on. ran the reti"!  through with the haft of the spear and  killed him. As I could see, the n.ilire  ont hael left the haft with a sharp, razorlike edge on one siele.
