Dateel this 20th dav of August, 1897.  J. F. ARMSTRONG,  l"������u4t Official Administrator, Kootenay  What do the Liberal bosses and  understrappers of this province expect  to gain by this shallow diplomacy?  Do they'imagine it deceives auyboely?  They started in a, few months ago by  an open eleclaration that tlieie wtis  some inherent necessity in the nature  of things themselyes that the next  provincial elections should lie fought  on Dominion party, lines. They saw  that the Turner government was shaky  and unpopular and they imagined that,  they saw an easy way to score another  great Liberal victory hy dubbing that  government Conservative, so that all  the credit of its defeat niightttccrue to  their own party. A few feelers in this  direction put out hy the"pocketx)i_ans  of so-ca11e3X"l)iTalism in British Columbia were summarily knocked on the  head by the independent press of the  province. It was pointeeVont that in  the first place Mr. Turner's ministry  were not elected for their Conservatism, that many of their opponents  both in and out of the legislature, were  quite as much Conservatives as-the  premier himself, anel that finally there  was nothing particular about the per-  sonel of tliei Liberal party in British  Coin in bitt, oc.theirycon^iu-t sifice" the*  Liberal IriunYph,"which would lead the"  electors to entrust Iheni with the task  of refoitiling the administration of  the province. The proposition, for  which not one single argument of any  kintl was ever adduced, was hurriedly  withdrawn and the. Conservative opponents of Sir. Turner patted on the  back and told that their Liberal  friends, like Mrs. Micawber, "would  never desert them.'.'  chance for the Libctal party to get  holel the: government machinery of the  province for use in Dominion politics.  No pains have been spared to effect,  this object in every other part of the  Dominion, and province after province  litis been bribed, cajoled nnd bullied into  compliance with the. lequiicinunls of  the Grit politkal bosse-s. They appear to have some misgivings about  the retisibility of the job in British  Columbia, and are going much more  secretly to work than in other cases.  They anel their candidates will be from  this out very much worth witching,  and Conservatives will have to b<_! very  cautious lest in the next c>leclion<Ahe.y.  unwittingly lend a hand to frn*f>a-nn-  other political machine for keeping  their own party in the Dominion, out  of oflice.  THE    CONSERVATIVE    LEADER  Buttonholed on   His Way to Rossland  With Sir Mackenzie Bo well.  Sir Charles Tupper and Sir Mackenzie Bowi'll passeel thiough Revelstoke  on Wi'diiesdtiy on their way to Keiss-  land. The Conservativo leader is looking well anel carries his 70 ye'us  lightly. He shoived uo signs of fatigue  fYbm his long journey. He conversed  with several friends on the* pl.itfoitn,  and when the time came for the boat  train to pull out both he and Sir  Mackenzie hopped on to the cars with  the agility of schoolbeiys. The two  Conservative veterans met quite by  chance and laughed, heartily over the  iele-a that, the object of their joint expedition was to offer the leadership of  the parly to Sir Hugh Macdoniild.  Tlie real object of Sir Charle.-s" trip is  to visit some claims at Kossland,  which lie has bonded for ,111 English  company, whicli he Hoati'd himself, as  well as another which will operate in  the Yukon. Sir Mackenzie Bowell has  been in the province several times, his  first visit being paiel in 1SS6 and his  last during his premiership, when he  was accompanied hy Hon. T. M. Daly,  then Minister of the Inteiior.  But there are more ways of killing a  elog than by choking liini with melted  butter.   .The .Liberal.elispensers ..of  patronage', wirepullers anil hangers-on  havo got their oiders. .'���������Theirs but to  do or die." So it is suddenly discovered that. Liberalism in this province  wants organizing, anel its interests require looking after. A convention is  requ'n ed at one e. Tho tusk before this  "gathering will be of the simplest. The  local, provincial opposition is all at  sixes and sevens, without coherence  and without a real leader. All that  the Liberal notables will have to do  will be to select some trustworthy  Grit lei run in each constitlieney us an  opponent of the Tinner government  and the ti-ic-k is elone. riieConservalive  members of the provincial opposition  can take the Liberal candidate or  none. A number of the electors will  vote against the present government  anyhow, ri-gardless of the political  stripe of the candidate, all good Grits  will of course vote for the right man  too, anel so the thing will be elone and  another palm leaf he added to the  garlanel on Premier Laurier's brow.

For the whole transaction is simply  a conspiracy to capture the administration of this province with a view to"  its future usefulness in Dominion  politics. The Conservative opponents  eif the Turner government have by  their apathy played straight into the  hands of the Grits of the province,who  are not slow to lake full advantage of  the error. The persistency of the  attempt shews how all important they  consider the prize to be. The interests  of the province cut a very small figure  beside it. They would be best served  by a United Reform party with a  platform based on provincial requirements. Such a paity could have been  organized and its success would have  been well nigh assured. But for the  hungry Grit partisans there is in the  immortal words of the great Mc-  Cre.edy "nol hing to it," in any such  proposition as this. The main feature  of the next piovincitil election in their  opinion is the fact that it will open a  A CHUNK OF GOLD   " 1,  As Big as a Cake of Soap Chipped off  a Rock���������A Fabulous Report  The Worlel young man, while on a  trip to the East, had a conversation  with Mi*. H.yH.'Jon'es "of Port. Hope,  from whom he learned ()f a find of gold,  reputed to be fiihuloiis.  ' Mr. Jones is a business man, well  known in this city, whose word can be  relied upon. He says that some years  ago an Indian discovered a ledge of  white quartz in a spur of the Rocky  Mountain:*, containing adepeisit.of geilel  so rich that with his hatchet he broke  eiff a piece of soliel gold about one-half  the size* of an ordinary cake of soap.  Tliis piece of gold, it is said, is in the  possession eif e>ne of the men to whom  the lind was reported,and shows plainly the mark of the blow whicli broke  it from the le'dge. The le-dge the'In-  diitn reported .to .shoiy^ aji immense  area of solid* golel7 He "gave explicit-  directions as to its location, and would  have conducted a party to it had not  an unfortunate accident eluded his  life. The secret is known to but two  white men beside*s Mr. Jones, and they  are about to organize a company of  reliable Canadians with means for the  purpose e*>f locating nnel securing the  "richest deposit of gold in America."  Mr. Jones has so much faith in the  deposit that he is selling out his prosperous business in Port Hope, and  with a few good men who have expressed a de'ire .to accompany him,  will (it he I'.'innot start a gooel company) go personally to the locality,  where he thinks they will have but  liltle difficulty in dueling it as the Indian left. il. lie knows the exact number of ilays by pack horse from Eel-  inonton, the nnnibor of days by boat  anel Ihe number em foot which it took  the Indian to make Ihe journey. He  also states it i.s em a spur on the east  side of the Rockies, anil the rich finds  of golel on the' Pence River woulel go lo  corroborate the statements made by  Mr. Jones that this is the genuine  lnothi'i' lode of lhe Northwest geild.  Shoulel the route to the Klondike be  opened up in gooel shape from" Eeluion  ton. it will be a. comparatively easy  matter to reach the reputed treasuie  over the same road. Air. Jones expects to start about the latter end of  February, so as to be on the* ground  before the streams rise in J tine.  OUR RIVER  BANK PROTECTION  A   Suggestion   From   Mr.    Olcott.   an  American Authority on Grass Culture  A shoit time ago the Herald wrote  te< a gentleman named Jas. B. Olcott  of South Manchester, Conn., who is a  great authority on grasses anel has  travelled for his state iu various purls of  the world with a view to investigating  different kinds of grasses, particularly  such as would hold dams .and river  banks against the encroachments of  the water. The Hkiiald asked him if  he knew of any lnug-i noted grass  Avhich would be of avail in our case,  -particularly mentioning the "guinea  grass" of Australia, which is stated to  have roots.forty feet long and to grtnv  tinywhere. From his reply it appears  that we are not singular in the matter  of having our townsite washed away  by the 1 iver, only we have no Uncle  Sam to vol e us an occasional "5000 to  improve matters.   Mr. Olcott. says:  "The Ranch," South Manchester,  Conn., Sept. IU, 18U7.-G. E. Gi-Jgan,  Esq.: My Dear Sir���������I 11111 not much of  a long-distance or short-distance ael-  viser on what I have never seen, although 111111 an old newspaper, man.  I am very apt to get my neaiest neighbors to sf.idy their own business even  when I am d'jing it, and not depend  too much em me. If you wish grasses  for any purpose ���������they are like the: limbers���������you need te> know all 1 he gooel  ones to make one little job right.  Why didn't you send me a map of  yemr townsite or a copy of your journal ?  "The thing which occurs to my  mind first, for your predicament, is  nut grass but a line of heavy trees with  the liiiibs on, chained together, butts  up stream, and" held by piling every  few rods just outside your river bank  till they get water-logged anil sink in  your quicksjimls. Inside e>f those  trees���������supposing they staid there���������willow stakes might grow. Later on,  when .your shore is anchored on a  slope with tree roots, theie are doubtless grasses that woulel hold the bank  even if the most of the trees cut away.  This treatment is what I . woulel  recommend for my own Connecticut  river, opposite Hartford, where towns  have been washing away these two or  three hundred yi*ars.- The land owners are iulerosteel, the town is deeply  interested,--so is the county and the  state. But Uncle Sam votes us $5000  eince. in 11 while for. the "improvement  of navigation," a steamer noses along  the bank and makes the washing  worse and so. on. We have, long got  used lo this'state 'of thihgs*. ' Tell"nie  in a hundred years if you don't���������  especially if you get the government  appropriation."

About 30 <pitchers were  present from Donalel to Kamloops and  the Kootenay country. ��������� The proceedings were very interesting anil the  gathering was greatly appreciated by  all present, the beauty ot the country  anel the pleasant sitti'ition and appearance of Vernon adeling considerably to  the pleasure of the meeting.

He  is above everything else a gentleman and his worst enemies have  not been able to cast any serious  aspersions     against    either     his  public or   private character.    In  his  cabinet  he    has- surrounded  himself with a number of strong  and  cleag' men    well    fitted   to  participate in the government of a  large and important country.   It  is  true  thnt   among    the   good,  whether   willingly   or    not,    he  selected some that it would haye  been better for himself  and the  country   to   have  -left    severely  alone. But a change seems to have  come over   Sir  "Wilfrid with his  knighthood.      In    his    Montreal  speech on the 10th he said:  "We are free today aud weave  a nation. ... I was in Pans,  in the land of my ancestors, when  the telegraph wires Hashed the  news that England had denounced  the treaties which she had maintained for 20 years and more with  Germany and Belgium. What was  Canada before that day? On the  Continent of Europe what was it  ���������in France and Germany and  everywhere else? Simply a name,  simply a blotch on the map und  nothing more. But when the day  came that, at the instance of  Canada, England, a great nation,  denounced her treaties with  Germany and Belgium, I felt a  proud citizen because on that day  my dreams were realized and  Canada became a factor among  ���������the-nations-of-the-earth,'-^-etc._=   Futther on he said:  "If I may be privileged on this  occasion to say one word of ray  own personal self, I would say-  that for many and many years ic  has been my hope that I would not  close my eyes, that I would not  sink into the grave, before 1 had  seen Canada lifted up to the state  of a nation."  The Toronto World has been  analizing Sir Wilfrid's post-Jubilee  speeches, this among the rest, and  has come to the conclusion that  they are full of clap-trap. It  quotes the much talked of epigram  that Canada is now a nation as a  fair sample of the Premier's  buncombe, and states���������what is a  fact���������that Canada is very little  more of a nation today than -he  ever was. Can we make a treaty  with the United States today?  Certainly not. Can we appoint  our own Governor General? By  no means. Has Canada power to  appoint a Minister or Ambassador  to a single foreign country? Not  at all. As far as France or  Germany or the United States are  concerned, Canada is still simply a  name, simply a blotch on the map  and nothing else.  It would be hardly opportune  for Sir Wilfrid to sink into the  grave just now. What he lias  accomplished is but the forging of  a single link in a chain that  already has hundreds of links and  that requires several more before  it is finished. Other links more  important than Sir Wilfrid's have  been fashioned by other statesmen than he, but in regard to  none of them has such transcendent glory been claimed as has been  claimed by Sir Wilfrid Laurier  for^the part he took in fashioning  the last link. The realization of  Confederation was the greatest of  all the inks in the chain of nationality, but history does not record  Agenti:  RAM LAL'S TEA  GROCERIES���������Our Stock of Groceries is always  fresh and first-class, being constantly renewed  by consignments from the best houses in the  Dominion.

Sir John Macdonald  fought for and established' the  principle. oir "Wilfrid Laurier  merely made it retroactive. He  has won for Canada no new prerogative, because nothing like the  German or i$ergiau treaties was  possible in tlie future, even if they  had ne\er been denounced. Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's coup tV etat has  no prospective significance.  Canada was really as much of a  nation iu 1S0G as she is in 1SSJ7.  WRITING A BOOK  Miss Fraser Talks  About   Her   Forthcoming Volume on British Columbia.  (l"roiii*.h8 Calgary Herald)  Miss l~r.-i.sei*. who writes under the  tiorii de plume of Frances M.-icNabb, is  in Calgarv again after a long visit to  British Columbia, wliich included ti  few elavs each in Llie; coast, cities, Pen-  tinctoii. Agass-i"/., Rosslanci, Sandon.  Kaslo, Fort Steele and other points.  Miss Fraser, who is -in authority on  South Africa, was interested to find in  British Columbia tin* same questions  as are met with in the older mining  country, but was ilisappointed. t'rom  the author's point uf view, over the  absence of any great question such as  the native problem in South Atrica.  "What :lo voii think of British'  Columbia's future," asked TilE Hkii-.  Ai.D,"as compared with South Africa.  " That   is   a   difficult    question   to          remarked. Mis Fraser  British Columbia very little  the fact that Sir John Macdonald,  on the consummation of that  great event, was so upset with the  glory of it that he declared himself ready for the grave and immortality.  Ever  siuce   Confederation   was  brought about    Canada   nas enjoyed practical   autonomy, in the  matter of her tariff.   Before that  day of days to whicli Sir Wilfrid  Laurier refers, the day when we  ceased to be a mere blotch on the  map, Canada had power  in   hot-  own hand to   discriminate against  the United States  and a  score of  other nations, in her tariff.    But  in  regard   to   Belgium   aud  Germany,   it appears, we did  not enjoy the same complete autonomy  as we   did   toward    the   United  States.   AVhat the day of days has  really given us is complete   tariff  autonomy,    whereas    previously  that autouomy had been   a trifle  circumscribed.     It  seems "to-require very little to turn some people's heads.  But when we bring to light the  facts connected with this greatest  and most glorious event ia Canadian history, we find that it was  notSir Wilfrid Laurier at all who  conceived the idea which led up  to the greatest fact in our nationality.

Canada, it is true, now enjoys  complete tariff autonomy aud wa  are a nation. Still, we are not  supreme in the matter of copyright. Even when it comes to j  dealing with our next door neigh-1  bours ou this ejuestiou, we are not  a law uuto ourselves. We are  still a daughter in our mother's  house, not mistress in our own.  We are simply a blotch on the  map. But the late Sir John  Thompson made a noble fight to  secure for Canada supremacy in  the matter of copyright, as well as  of the tariff. This very copyright  question was one of tlie mutters  that took him to England and  that was to engage his attention  hael not Providence intervened  and suddenly called him from the  scene of his earthly career. "So  statesman was ever more determined in carrying any measure  through than was Sir lolin  Thompson in maintaining Canada's right to make her own copyright laws. If he had lived till  today, Canada would now enjoy  supremacy in the matter of copyright.  For several years back Canada  has claimed and exercised the  right to representation in the  making of all treaties in wliich the  interests of the Dominion were  directly concerned. Wc did not  enjoy the right at the time the  German treaty was made, but the  principle of Canada's right to representation in the making of all  treaties affecting herself has been  admitted i'or many, years. What  Sir Wilfrid Laurier succesdcel in  doing was in making this principle  retroactive in regard to two treaties  FERGUSON  The.

GOLD AND WHEAT  The editor of the Regina Standard  rounels off bis description of a tour  through West Kootenay with the  following interesting camparison :  '���������Averaging this ore at $20 per ton m  Rossland (a very low estimate) we get  Hi2.000.000 in return for the year's output. Let us now make tt comparative  statement to see what this really  means.  Turning Lo the last census we find  that the wheat crop of the Northwest Territories in 1S91 was 1.702.109  bushels. Allowing tin increase of 50  per ceiTtffor"-tliP~greater-iicreage--ttnd-  tbe exceptionally good crop., of the  present year we have, in round numbers, 2,500,000 ot No. 1 hard.

Tlie e-tv.npai i*-*on is no  disparagement, of tbe North West, for  ti two million dollar crop is something  to be proud of���������and it is possible to increase it ten fold.

'  ���������Ella  Wheeler WIIcon,   iu  Woman's Journal.  "Much attention is being given to the  question of the best means of prolonging life, in the medical journal." of the  day. The London Hospital, which  has been discussing the subject, rejects  the idea that temperance or prohibition in drinking liquor promoted long  life. The journal in question [points  out that Lord Eldon drank a bottle of  port every weekday and every Sunday  Lord Stowell dined" with him, and each  of them drank two. "Thev eauh lived  to be .a good deal past SO.". The writer  tells the old story of a yeoman of S3  who unitized Justice Deninan with the  erectness of his figure, the vigor of his  intelligence and the resonance, of liis  voice, 'lho old man explained that he  was ti vegetarian and a total abstainer.  The judge, in dismissing him, expressed a hope that all who were present might profit by his example, and  then the next witness wascalled. This  was another yeoman, an elder brother  of the preceding anel fully a match for  him in stiength,..activity and intelligence. As he was about to retire the  Judge stopped him with the observation: "I presume that vou also, Mr.  Greenlield are indebted for,the preservation of your stiength and faculties  to a, careful observance--of the same  sobriety and ' ot the same regimen |  which has. been so well described to us  by your nrother?"  "Hain't been to bed sober for 50  years, my lord," was the unblushing  and st.irtlingly unexpected teply.  The Hospital points out what should  be, if it is not a univt*isally accepted  dictum, that the avoidance of excess  n eating is the great secret of longevity. The old axiom is undoubtedly  true, that men elig their graves with  their teeth. It may. however, we  think, be assumed that length of days  in the majority of cases is due to some  inherent peculiarity of organism, 'by  which it is enabled to exist for a period  beyond the average.  Tranquili ty"6f life has���������longbeeii-re-  garde'd as an essential to .longevity:  and the tact that yeomen are as a class  the* longest lived points to the advantages of rural life as promoting long  life. Tbe -clodhopper who vegetates  in an out-of-the-way country places  vies with men "whose minds are kept  active and recipient" by the study of  questions remote - from the nerve-  gnawing pettiness, of daily existence.  Great mathematicians, great poets,  great statesmen live long. We have  in minei Bisniarck,Gladstone,the''pope,  Lord.Kelvin���������to name but a few���������  bright examples of the preservative  power of lofty mental exercise. It is  the middling man, the plodder, .who  fights the gnats on. his journey, not  the sleepy plowman or the philosopher  striding on with his head among the  stars, .who perishes. As the Hospital  says: "Our advice to those who desire  longevity would be to eat sparingly,  and. unless their business���������like that of  lawyers���������demands constant exercise  of the men'nl faculties, to study some  alistru~e question in such intervals of  leisure as they can obtain."  SOME LARGE NUGGETS  The largest nugget yet'found on the  Clondike came down on the steamer  Excelsior, the 15th instant. Itweighed  a little less than 31 ounces and was  worth $5S3 23. Lirger nuggets than  that have been found on the North  Fork of the Occur d'Alene, and in  comparison with some of the nuggets  found in California, it is a trifle. The  famous Monumental nugget of California weighed LIS pounds 4 ounces.  California's second largest nugget wa������  found in Frene-h ravine in 1S53. and  ������ eighed 51 pounds. One from Down-  ie.ville in 1S51 netted the owner SSjOOO.  NuTgets ranging in value from $500 to  S5.000 were found by the score in California.  But it does not follow that the failure of the Clondike to turn out big  nuggets is indicative of the absence of  greit placer wealth. In thp early days  of California, millions of dollars were  taken from rich diggings,and in many  camps no verv large nuggets were  found. Then" Clondike's history is  hrief, anel Liter work in the placer  fields of Alaska may disclose some  large chunks of gold. " The California  excitement was started in 1.318, and  many millions #1 dollars had been  taken from the placers before the  great nuggets were uncovered.  A BICYCLE CHASE.  Milo Warren was making a call on a  Sirl to whom he was fondly attached,  although he had never told her so.  But this was a case where actions  speak louder than words, and���������leave a  girl alone for finding out if. a young  man regards her with favor. Every  girl is clairvoyant -where affairs of the  heart  are  concerned.  They were talking about their birthdays and the pleasant custom of giving presents at such a lime.  "Let-me see," said Milo, thoughtfully, "did you say your birthday came  In September, Miss Nellie ?"  "I didn't say," remarked Miss "ellie,  demurely.  "Then it was December, wasn't it ?  Some lucky fellow will be giving you  a diamond, perhaps !"  "Or a souvenir spoon," laughed Nellie; "you know they made jewel-spoons  for birthday gifts, but all the girls  changed their birthdays to December,  and the young men could not stand  the expense, and they sent a petition  to tlie manufacturers, asking them .to  discontinue the'custom, so no more  spoons are in the market."  "I���������I���������I���������really wish you would tell  me when your natal day arrives. I  might at least send you a bunch of  roses, _in remembrance of all the���������the  ���������happy days .we have spent together.  Is It this month, Miss Nellie '.'"  "You remind me of the parlor game:  'Is it this ? Is it that ?' " said Miss  Nellie, and then fearing that the  young man was becoming sentimental  she turned the conversation to other  subjects.  But the next day Milo Warren  dropped casually into the store where  Miss Nellie Newton's best brother was  engaged as"'bookkeeper, and inquired  solemnly at the grated window, which  permitted a segment of liis countenance  to appear, if that young man would  take lunch with him.  "Certainly," was the brusciue reply  from a mouth full of pens; "I'll meet  theo at-Pliilippi���������I mean at Hunger &  Co.'s���������in an hour."  He was there, and at the pleasant  spread of good things provided Milo  Warren  propounded  tliis  conundrum :  "If you like a girl awfully, but.  haven't told her so, and you think she  maybe likes you awfully���������no, I don't  mean that���������but if that girl has a birthday, and you want to make her a present, and she wont tell you when it  is���������tho birthday, you know���������oh, hang  it all, I'm everlastingly mixed up.  Can't you help a fellow out ?" ���������  Lyman Newton laid aside his knife  and fork, and looking Milo in tht* lace  asked, seriously :  "Any insanity in your family, Milo?"  "None that I ever heard of outside  -of~my~bwri"-"case;"_was~the'=depre"sse-d-  answer.  "Reducing your heroics to a plain  statement, then, you want to give a  girl of your acquaintance a birthday*  present."  "Exactly.".  ' '  ���������  "Is she an  Old Woman ?"'  "What do you mean V" roared Warren, turning red. "I'll* thank you tc  speak with respect of my friends���������Besides  I���������"  "Oh, no harm done; don't get riled  so easily. I wanted to know if she belonged to the past ago or the present.  I take it, then, that she's a New  Woman ?" - -  "I understand now. Yes, T believe  she has advanced opinions, but she  Isn't one of those dreadful creatures  that advocate tU<������ wearing of bloomers.  Nellis is the soul iff womanly modesty,  and���������"  "Nellie ? Do you know this bright  particular star ?"  "Why, of course you do���������1 quite for-  eot���������she's   your   sister !"  "Well, I like that ! j.nd you want to  make her a birthday present'and don't  know the day. Sorry, old fellow, but  I can't help you out. "Nellie would  take my head ore If I told."  That ended the lunch, hut an unforeseen thing happened. Just as Milo  Warren left hie company at the corner  he saw an urchin he knew. It was the  infliction known as Nellie's youngest  brother, age seven, capacity for mischief seven times seven, precocity unlimited   by   any  period   of  tlme.-  Milo, with malice prepense, engaged  the dear child in a surfeit of sweets,  and' then asked, as if the idea was  not of tho least consequence, and had  just occurred to him :  "When does Sister Nellie have a  birthday '*"  The dear child looked at him for a  moment, drew his mouth round under  his ear, elevated both eyebrows, anil  said in a conliding,  infantile voice :  "What'll yer give  ter know ?"  jVdvantapeous le^rnis being made, the  boy puckered his mouth for a whistle,  thought better o������ it and gave the following Saturday as his sister's birthday.  "jVn' if yer want to make yourself  solid���������see���������Just tend her a real stunner  of  a  bike."  "What ! jV bicycle ? Does she ride ?"  "How kin she ? I reckon she kin  learn, mis_ter. Vou just send that bike  -"there ain't nothin' Nell wants wuss  cor that,"  With this advice, and bein������ sworn  to secrecy, the small terror bowed liJ.**_i-  self oil*.  li gave Milo .Warren t-om.-.th'ii'* lo  do to purchase that bicycle and have  It doliveied to Miss NWlic- on nor birthday in an anonymous manner. lie expected it back every hour for about a  week, but it tllel not come, ami no felt  safe. The small brother had not betrayed him after all.  Dut after ti little lie began to v.-isfl  he had, for Miss Nellie had evidently  mounted thai bicycle nntl ridden out  of his life. He called, but she was oui  on hei- bieyce, no matter what the  hour was, noon or night, and be got  himself run over on the stivei and  knocked down daily by diu-biug out  from sidewalk corners lu see who tho  rider was, ami gelling btu-i for his  pains. When lie could stain] It no  longer he ciinii; to a sudden retiolve���������he  would buy a bicycle for himself, and  perhaps  be  able  lo  lind Nellie.  And now, began an exciting chase  for life and liberty, for at one moment  the amateur bicyclist was under the  feet of a trampling horse, the next lm  was running over a wrathy pedestrian,  and he* usually ended his experiences  by picking up his frisky stec.l and  carrying n  t0  t;ie sll0p f01. _.,_,,__.,.__.  And all this time lie never caught a  ellmpse of Nellie, but he was inclined  to think lie divined the cause. Judging from his own experience In learning to ride a bicycle, Nellie might be  exercising her own fractious acquisition on some remote roadway outside  the city limits���������or, dreadful thought,  might even be laid up herself for repairs. He called "on, the'.* bookkeeper  brother, but found'him busy and non-  commital. So he wailed and tried to  possess liis soul with patience, and  learn to ride a bicycle without the zigzag motion that had endangered the  lives of tbe populace and nearly caused  his arrest by the police.  Then he made the discovery that if  he gave his wheel its head, it would  behave much better than when lie  guided it carefully, to the end that it  traversed both sides ot the street at  ence. Afler acting like a thing possessed it learned to behave, and he  found himself skimming along like a  bird on the wing, with an exultant  sense of freedom and delight, and he  longed to see Nellie and tell her what  he had been trying to say for months  ���������that he loved her,  And at that moment there whizzed  past him a vision In bloomers, one of  those dreadful new women of whom  he had heard, and now was to see. He  almost felt that it was disloyalty lo  gentle little Nellie to ever look at such  an apparition; but somehow she looked so quaint in her saucy jacket and  baggy trous.ers, her neatly gaitered  feet were so port , and independent,  that Milo looked and looked again,  then he gave a great whoop,' and took  after the flying wheel like a streak of  lightning.  His confidence stood him instead of  skill, lie went spinning along in fine  style until he reached a parallel with  the girl with bloomers, then he leaned  over toaspeak to her, toppled and fell  in a heap, but ho't before he had gasped :   "Nellie !"  That young lady skilfully eluded  the wreck, made a fancy run and  turn, and as Milo gathered himself up,  said, pleasantly :  "Why, Mr. Warren, I didnt know  tlfat you rode a wheel."  "I don't," sajd the young man, ruefully, feeling of his tilbowto determine  whether it was dislocated or merely  abraded, "but you, Miss Nellie, are  quite an expert."  Miss Nellie murmured something  about the wheel-being a present from  her brother, and that she had not cared to ride, but just did to please him.  "But you ought to see my . little  brother ride," she said, with enthusiasm ; he rides the wheel' when I am  not using it, and he makes ��������� it spin.  Why, he rides standing up, and I'm so  afraid something will happen to him."  Milo was walking along, leading his  wheel, as if he preferred that way, and  Miss Nellie gave him 'several exhibitions of her skill, and each moment  made a stronger anel more lasting im  presslon on . the poor fcllow's���������lioaft7  But even bicycle courtship comes to  an end, and they were at Nellie's  home, anel he must leavo lier, unless-���������  he askeel for a glass of water, and before it_was brought he sat down with  the wheel on the sidewalk.  It was a sudden and most cffeslive  stroke of art.

In 1S05, Pitt called a meeting of the  British militia colonels to consitler his  Additional Force bill. Some objected  to the clause which called them out  under all circumstances, anel argued  that this should not be "except in case  ot actual invasion." "Then," said Pitt,  "It would be too late." Presently they  came to another clause, when the same  objectors insisted on the militia not being liable to be sent out of the kingdom. "Except, 1 suppose," said Pitt,  with cruel sarcasm, "In case of actual  invasion."  A Wetiscl'rt lly ptleilie; Power.

ALBERTA IRRIGATION.  Mainly the Result of  Individual   Effort  on the Part of the Settlers.  The last report of the Interior De-  pal tuient says regarding irrigation in  the West: "It is worthy ot note that  the large and healthy growth of irrigation developmentasevidenced therein, is largely the outcome of personal  ell'orls of tlie resident population in  then- endeavor to improve existing  conditions, and is not in the remotest  sense any attempt to boom irrigation  or tbecousti-iictionof.irrigation works.  It may be safely said that in very few  of tbe new anel undeveloped portions  of Western America, have the settlers  evidenced a greater readiness  to help themselves by striving  to        overcome nature's        short  coinings in the way of insufficient  moisture, than litis been shown by our  population in the arid portion of the  Territories during the past two years.  That this face is sure to mil ih the  rapid growth of the:irrigation principle  and result in theearly construction of  the larger works, requiring combined  effort and capital, will be realized hy  t.hose who have experienced the many  difficulties to be overcome by inteiest-  ing capital in any undertaking which  is in iin experimental stage, or fiom  which the lesults are uncertain."
