A VERY CLOSE CALL  A Lady Saves  an  Arrowhead , Freight  Train From Being Wrecked  Mrs. Thomas Barrows, wife of  section foreman Barrows,of Wigwam,  prevented what might have been a  serious wreck for ������i Canadian Pacific  railway freight train on VVednesilay  morning List. Mis. Barrows happened  lo be looking oul of her window at 1  o'clock iu the morning, anil noticed a  huge tree lying across the railroad  track. Just as she opened the front  door, she heard a train approaching,  and without even stopping to put on  her boots she ran a distance of nearly  a quarter of a mile bare-footed and  flagged the train. As this spot is just  at the end of a. sharp curve and a long  bridge, nothing but Mrs. Barrows'  great presence of mind could have  prevented a very serious accident and  perhaps loss of life. The spot is between the 15 and 10 mile boards on the  Arrow Lake hianch.     <.

GOOD LUCK STORIES  How Charley Anderson Made a Fortune  in the.Klondike  The story of how Charley Anderson  became an El Dorado king is one of  rare interest. .Early in tho fall of 1800  Andeison vvith a party of ,1 won companions, ' came .up^from -Forty-Mile,  inte' loceite claims oh Bonanza-  creek. Tliey-founrP-the'creek staked  from head toMnoulh, which fact so  disgusted Anderson that he filled up  on bad whiskey, ~ hoping thereby to  dtoivn his disappointment. While in  a maudlin condition he fell into the  hand*, ofsouie" wonld-b'e' sharpers, who  easily persuaded him to invest. fjiSOO.  nil the money he had. in No. 20. -El  Dorado. When Anderson camo to his  senses nex< morning he found himself  the possessor of "i deed to tho property  mined, but without a dollar in his  pocket. Tbe young Swede begged,  implored and threitened his tormentors, but to no purpose. Securing a  grub-stake Anderson went to his claim  The Ontario Legislature has been  summoned to meet for the despatch of  business on the 3rd of August/  and settled dovvn lo hard work. The  first gravel showed good pay, nnd  when bedrock wiis reacheel Anderson  saw that the fleecers had been fleeced.  When Anderson told of his good  fortune, .the former owners of the  claim devised sundry ways and means  to get hack lhe property. But the  prospective rich man would have  notjiing to elo with them. He eschewed  whiskey and to the present day has  not touched u drop. Two ltionllis ago  Anderson was offered $ I00,(KX) for the  claim, not including the present season's work, or $500,000, and he will not  consider any olfer under this.  Lippy. of Seattle, is another favored  son of foi tune. He slaked a claim on hut afler a few clays traded  it for his present properly on El  Doiiula. Hole after hole had lieen  -���������.ink on the Bonanza claim, but not a  dollar found. With the first pan  Lippy saw that he hnd struck it ricli,  and,- though not possessing a dollar of  ready cash, had no difficulty in employing half a score of men. El Dorado at lhat time vvas considered a  vv nthluss pup of Bonanza. Two years  have shown the pup to be in every  way superior to the sire.

KLONDIKE GOLD DUST  A   Party   Arrives    at    Victoria    from  Dawson With $750,000���������Soapy Smith  the Desperado, Killed  VicTOiiiA, B. C, July 13.���������The  steamer Cottage; City, brought down  on Saturdaj- night about twenty men  who left Dawson City about June 8th,  and travelled by steamer to the White  Horse rapids. They bring about three-  quarters of a million dollars'in'dust  and paper, mostly the latter. They  say that banking accommodation at  Dawson is now so good that there is  no necessity for men bringing out  Iheir money in any other form than  drafts. The Canadian Bank of Com  merce and the British Norlh America  are storing dust for shipment via St.  Michaels in boats of the transportation companies. Among llie men who  111 lived are Phil Dobson, oT Los  Angeles; Henry Cheney, of Rochester;  Miller and Vines, of New ,York. All  have money variously estimated at  from $10,000 to $15,000 each. The  health of Dawson Cily is good, and no  lawlessness exist**. The mounted  police are giving great satisfaction.  Exceedingly good strikes are being  made on lhe new bench. Eldorado,  Bonanza and French creek, and Skoci-  kuni gulch is reported to beiniuiensely  productive at- high levels. Quartz  claims prospected so. far, yield poor  prospects.  Soapy Smith was killed on July Sih  by the city engineer of Skagway ou  the what f at that place. Snapy's gang  had robbed a new arrival from' Dawson of $27,000 and 11 mectingof citizens  wtis called to devise some means of  obtaining a refund of the money and  to rid lhe town of Soapy's gang.  Soapy proceeded to break up .-the  meeting aimed with a Winchester  rifle. At the entrance to the whaif  the city engineer had been deputed to  guard- against'- "J n te fr 11 p t i"on ~ai 1 cl ~'h e  resisted Soapy's. intrusion with the  result that the latter struck bim. with  the butt end of his rifle. The men  closed, and Soapy's rifle went off,  severely wounding the" guard, who  immediately shot him thiough the  henit with a, revolver'. Soapy died  instantly, and at the inquest'held  subsequently *,the engineer was exonerated on the ground, of self-defence. Soapy's body was still in the  morgue when the Cottage City left.  The declaration of martial law at  Skagway was -occ.usioned , by the  killing of Soapy Smith, and subsequent to the arrest of sewral members of his gang,_ Bo wei s.1 one cifihe  ringleaders, hnd stolen ������2.700 from *a  newly returned Dawson City mirier,  and the gang's refusal to lefutid tbe  money led to an indignation 'meeting,  and Soapy Smith's - shooting. The  citizens then, armed with Winchesters  patrolled lhe streets, announcing their  intention to arrest all implicated with  the dead gambler. The seaich resulted  in the apprehension of Bowers and  about a dozen others. Captain Yeat-  nian, of the 14lh infantry, stationed at  Dyea, In ought soldiers to Skagway  and proclaimed martial law, and,  according to lhe passengers of the  steamer City of Seattle which has  arrived, Yeatman, feaiinghis inability  to restrain the indignation of the  citizens who seemed likely to resort to  extreme meiisuics and threatened to  lynch'the prisoners, it is said, de-rided  lo give the men a chance for their  lives and allowed them to go free. As  the City of Seattle left for Seattle  shoi Lly after her arrival here, no other  details were obtainable.

Excitement on Isaac Creek  Isaac  creek,  about   10   miles down  the Arrowhead branch line from Rev- _  elstokc, is the scene of much mining  activity at the present lime, owing to  the reported discovery of  some very .  rich leads, which ficm samples of the.v  ore brought to town  have assayed as,  high as $172 to the ton.     It is under-__  stood that there aie   nearly  50   pros--  pectors now in the neighborhood, and'  the HliltAl-D  has  no' doubt   but that  Is-tac   creek- will   prove   itself a rich  camp in a very short time.

He reports'  that two shifts of men are at work on  the properties of his company.     They  are driving a tunnel and are now in  a"  distance of 10 f.eet,  drifting towards"  the hanging wall.    Tlie vein is from  50 to CO feet  wide and  it is   thought'?  that the ore chute will be found next  to the hanging wall.

I wns on tho upper Ohio onco when tlio  river was low, and wtis much amused over  tho uso to which a pilot put a megaphone.  IIo bought tho thing to call nshoro any  messago that might hnvo been given llio  bont to enrry. 'JL'his was to savo time, for  thoso littlo boats in tho local trades nre a  great dcnl_liko tho olel fashioned mail carriers���������anything to nccoiiimodnto the peoplo along tho bank.  "Wo wero in tho pilot houso, nud tho  boat was running up a shoot near tho  West Virginia side of llio river. In a cornfield was .111 old farmer,,vvho was following n plow behind an old, lien bitten gray  that only needed n half invitation to stop  at nny timo. Tho pilot put lho mcgapliono  to his mouth and shouted 'Whoa I' and  tho old gray whoacd.  "Tlio farmer heard tho sound, and he  thought, evidently, that a neighbor was  thero or thereabout, for ho looked around  to seo whenco tho sound camo. Then ho  tossed a clod nt tho old horso and started  him up  " 'Whoal' said tho pilot, and again tho  old horso stopped. Then the old Rubo  went to tho river bank and looked down  in tho willows, but not a soul could ho  seo. Ho looked up and dowfl and then at  tho steamboat and scratched his head iu  surprise He couldn't'afford to wasto any  timo in looking for tho ghost, for ho went  back to tho plow and started on with his  job.  "Onco moro tho joking pilot said 'Whoa I'  nnd ngain tlio horso stopped dead still.  You could see from the boat that tho old  fellow was all mixed up, for ho looked up  nnd down tho river and then afc tho liill-  sido behind him lo seo If he could find the  jiinn who wns working him nnd his old  horse. Ho mado up his mind that lio  would tako it out of tho old gray, nnd to  lis for tho occasion ho went to the underbrush and cut a stick that was 10 foot  long. IIo started tho horso with a vengo-  anco. When tho pilot hollered 'Whoal'  ngain tho old man gave tho gray a lick  thnt sounded clear to tho boat. Wo could  almost hear him say:  " 'Thnr, gol darn youi I'll teach you  to stop when you hear a spook hollerin at  you.'  "But the pilot kept; up lho good work  nnd hollered 'Whoal Whoal ��������� Whoal' and  again nnd ngain tho old man hit the gray.  Finally it looked us if ho hnd caught on,  for ho let tho old horso stop whilo he  watched tho boat.  "Then tho pilot thought ho had had  enough fun and ho culled out:  " 'Feed tho old gray I Feed him I . Ho's  so hungry thnt ho can't work. That's  all tho matter with him.'"  "Then old Rubo got his voico and wo  heard him say: 'You go to thunder with  your old voicel It'd stop a railroad train  nnyvvhercs!' " ��������� Cincinnati Commercial  Tribune.  STOMACH STUFFING.  YOUNG' MARRIED, PEOPLE.  TARTE  Israel Tarte is a cunning politician. He has given anuther proof  of his supreme power in the  Laurier cabiuet. It is only a few-  months since the respectable  Liberals of Quebec were crying  ont for Tarte's head. He was the  bete uoir ot the government. His  influence was corrupt and his  presence in the ministrv demoralizing. "What did he do? Try to  clear himself against their charge.1.?  Attack Lis enemies and attempt  to down them? N'o: here is where  his low cunning, somo may call it  cleverness, was brought into play.  He hot them  all appointed to  GOVERNMENT    .IOI5--..      Thi-  i"~  why  Tarte's Liberal opponents have  not been heard from lately. He  bribed them to keep quiet. He  filled their mouths with the plums  of office. And the patient, uncomplaining, ox-like taxpayer  furnishes the means for the little  Frenchman's private deals. The  tone of Canadian polities tvas  pretty low when the Conser-  vatives.went out, but it is safe to  - say that the Liberals have done  absolutely nothing to rai-ee it. On  che contrary their tolerance ot  ���������Tarte and his shady methods has  tended to sink political morals  deeper aud deeper into a mire  fiom1"1 which a modern Hercules  will be required to redeem them  It Is ������ Sail   Mistake  For  TIicui  to llegin  Lifo In a Hoarding Bouse.  Edward W. Bolt, editor of The Ladies  Iloino Journal, always a stanch and uncompromising advocate of tho home, assorts that a home, howcvor.->huiublc, is n  million limes better plnco for young married couples to livo than is tho most luxurious hotel or best boarding houso in tlio  land. "It is always a, sail thing," he says,  "when a young married couple begin lifo  hi a boarding house or hotol; sad because  Ihey start life practically outside of themselves The fiu-iuturo around tlicm is not  their own Tho young wifo mny brinij  with her nil the trifles she chooses She  mny atld n touch of her own here nnel another touch there. But the things in the  room aro not theirs, and sooner or later  she realizes it.  . " During tho day tho wifo is alone, . No  duties call her. Nothing is there in her  lifo to exercise her ingenuity or develop  her womanly talents. She cannot prepare any little pleasure for her young husband, for things nre prepared for her.  When her husband leaves her for his ollice,  she turns back into tho room anel vvoiidcr.  what sho can do during tho day: how she  will employ herself, where she vvill go  There is nothing in her room to appeal to  her to stay thoro. No home duties confront her. So she goes out and shops perhaps for awhile; runs around to her mother's; calls upon somo friends; goes back  to her room to practice a littlo, if she 1=  musicnl nnel has o pinno, or, if she is fond  ot books, sho rends. Thero is nothing in  her life���������two-thirds of herself lies dormant. Sho is glad when tho timo comes  for her husband to como homo-, gl.-ul to  feel thnt sho hns soma one to whom sho  can talk; glad of company. And he?  What can ho do to express himself to his  young wife"' Nothing around him is his  Kverythlng is by lease his for a time, for  so much money.. And after ho is through  paying ho leaves it behind. Tho enel  la tho ramo ns tho beginning. That is  why boarding houso or hotel lifo is so in-  jurioii- to young married people. It  makes them practically homeless."  Some   Common   Sense   Reasons Wliy You  Should Not Be Greedy.  What special plcnsuro is thore, after nil,  in overloading tho stomach? It certainly  is not a sonsiblo thing to do, and yet tho  so callod greedy peoplo often form this  habit simply becauso they do not take tlio  trouble to reason out tho certain results.  We seo almost daily reports of death ���������"attributed to heart failure. Did you ever  stop to think what it is that tho heart fails  to do?  Tho heart is said to bo tho most perfect,  organ oC the animal economy and ono  that never shirks its duty. Ifc is "stomaoh  stuffing," and not "heart failure," that  causes tho troublo in many instances. Tho  heart goes right 011 doing its duty throughout our lives without 0110 second's rest,  night or day, sometimes without tho intermission of a singlo pulsation for 100  years or inoro.  At ovcry beat it propels two ounces of  blood through its structure. At To pulsations per minute, 9 pounds of blood is  sucked in nud pumped out; overy hour,  010 pounds", every day,'12,000 pounds;  every year, ~t,730,_00 pounds; every 100  years, 473,040,000 pounds, and all performed without; ono moment's rest; verily, a  good record.  Novv tho heart has lho very meanest  neighbor that ever an organ had���������nnnicly,  the Ltomach���������especially if ifc bo tho stomach ol! a greedy person. This organ is a  drunkard, __ glutton, a trespasser and almost everything that is bad. Ifc ought to  bo walled in and compollcd to keep on its  own grounds.  Tho stomach lies directly under tho  heart, with only tho diaphragm between,  and when ifc fills with gas ifc is liko a small  balloon and lifts up until ifc interferes directly with tho heart's action. Tho stomach itself never generates gas, but when  filled with undigested food fermentation  tukes place and gas is formed, and tho In-  tcrfcrcnco depends upon tho amount of  gas in lho stomach.  To overcome this obstruction tho heart;  has to exert itself in proportion to tho interference, moro blood is sent to tho brain,  and tho following symptoms aro tho result: A dizzy head, a Hushed faco, a loss  of sight, spots and blurs before tho eyes,  Hashes of light, zigzag lines or chains,  often followed by the most severe headache. These symptoms are usually relieved when the gas is expelled from tho stomach.  Novv when this upward prcssuro upon  the heart becomes excessive, thero aro  nioiu dangerous symptoms. A-larger  quantity of blood is sent to tlio brain, and  if blood clot in tho brain . result tho pn-  tient dies of apoplexy. When a sick person or an olel one or ono with weak digestion sleeps, digestion is nearly or quito  suspended, but fermentation goes on in  llio overloaded stomach and gas is generated.  A man is found dead in bed, and tho  medical attendant pronounces ifc tho result  of lie-art failure, and such is tho certiiicato  of burial given. Now that man was out  and partook of a into supper; ato roast  beet, turkey, lobster, oysters, mince pie,  plum pudding, ice cream, cake, au orange,  nuts tuul raisins nnd drank three or four  cups of coffee, or perhaps several glasses  ot beer or wine. IIo vyent homo ot midnight, rethed, and died of heart failure  lieluro '.) tho next; morning. What did tho  heart fnilcto do?  A moro truthful verdict would havo  been: Death from a habit of greediness  formed in youth, ending in nn exaggerated  caso of stomach stuffing.���������Philadcphia  Times.  NEGRO HOUSEWIVES.

There is considerable speculation  as to the meaning of the white  flag which our war correspondent  so tantalizingly referred to in  yesterday's dispatches.

Ho nover punished and roro'iy reproved, nnd tho result  was a lax discipline, notwithstanding tho  energy which he infused into his own department through tho excrciso of his own  influence nnd ability.  In "La Vio .1 Paris," Villcmot relate,  that when M. D'Artout was at tho head 6f  tho ministry of the interior there was n  clerk in tho bureau who could vv rite a remarkable hand vvith ns rcninrknblo speed,  nml llio minister always kept him in his  own offices as private secretary.

The minister bowed ngain ln silence,  but went away vvith ft puzzled expression  in his eyes. Three weeks later the same  thing happened onco moro.

As  tho llora ripen during tho hor months of  summor, for the islanel is a thick ma*-s  of vegetation, tho stems enlarge, become  buoyant, anel, as tho season advances toward September, undergo the tirst'stagos  of docay; that is, the stums bocoine filled  with tho gases attendant upon fullorrlpo-  ness and commencing" decay.  ^'This large mnss of gas enclosing vegetation overcomes tho weight of  the mass, tho specific gravity being only  a littlo heavier than the water, and so  tho wholo mass gradually rises ubovo tho  water's surfaco; it stays in this condition  above the surfaco till tho heavy frosts of  tho fall occur, when,   tho   plant*, having  ' beon destroyed, nnd decay measurably  completed, the whole mass boing honvier  than tho "wator again, it gradually sinks  to tho bottom of tho lake, which is about  thirty   tect   dcop   at   this point, to ariso  . again the, following, year, when_spring  aiid summer have brou__ht"iho lako's flora"  into lifo and full vigor once more."

Therefore, as it was so  easy to sail his ships into tho harbors of  tho defenseless islands, to subjugato the  natives anil to tako awoy tho products of  their mines anel soil, ho commenced a veritable courso of piraoy.    *���������  Tho acquisition of gold and nil sorts of  plunder sccmcel to bo tho 'solo object of  this Spanish expedition, and natives were  enslaved anel subjected to tho greatest  hardships, so that they died in great numbers. At one timo 300 of them woro sent ns  slaves to Spain. - A pack of bloodhounds,  which Columbus had brought with him  for tho purpose, was used to hunt down  tho poor Indians when thoy endoavorcd to  cscnpo" from-tho-hands 6f-tho oppressors,"  and in ovory way tho Island of Hayti, tho  principal suene of tho actions of Columbus, was treated as if its inhabitants had  committed a drcaelful criino by being in  possession of tho wealth which' tho Span-  iarels desired for themselves.  Queen Isabella wns greatly opposed to  theso cruel and unjust proceedings. Sho  sent back to thoir nativo land tlio slaves  which Columbus hail shipped to Spain,  mnl sho gavo posltlvo orders that no moru  of tho inhabitants wero to bo enslaved and  . that thoy wero nil to bo treated with moderation and kindness. But tho Atlantic  Is a wide ocean, unil Columbus, far nwuy  from his royal patron, paid littlo attention  to her wishes and commands, and without going furthor into lho history of thl=  period, wo will simply montlon tlio fact  that it was on account of hisnlli'gcelatroc*  ities that Columbus wns superseded ln his  command and sent back in ohuins to Spuin  Waited Kludn.M.

Tho girls looked up in astonishment.  Than they glanced at one another.  "Ye-cs," snlil tho tallest ono.  "Well," said tho young mau, "tlio cars  do not como up the street hecau. 0 of tho  sower excavation. You will havo to go to  tho corner of Prospect and Erie." And  ho passed on.  "Diel you overl" a bystander heard ono  of the girls say.    "Wasn't that'check?"  "Wonder what ho takes us for?" inquired another. 'I  "Guess ho thought we'd walk with  him," said tho third.

Thenip-I  son to the Orangemen of Itevelstoke I  on July 10th, 1S9S:  Lesion:   Ileb. XI, Xi to cutl.  TKXr: IITIin. 1,i:i,���������"Ilnld fust the form nf  " i-otind word-., which thou hast board of  " ine in faith anil love which I.s lu Christ  " Jesus."  The Apostle is writing his dear son  in Lhe gospel, these beauliful letters,  glowing with zeal for Geid, I'or God's  truth, for God's cause, and melting  with lovo for Timothy ."inel I'eir the  ihiiri-b of Jesus Christ. Vim are im-  pre-ssed with the force of the' Apiislle'..  argiinienl. and appeal to Timothy, lie  warns of danger ; tin exhorts to courage, Lo constancy, lo valiant e-emflict.  if necessary, and you will remember  Lhe power anel pathos in that laM  charge whore the Apostle refers to bis  own life. '"I am now ready lo be'  olleri'd, the lune of my departure has  come. 1 have: fought a good light. I  have finished my course. I have kept  the faith." IL is lhis way lie chooses  lo prepare his successor for the carrying on of Irs work and for the defense'  and preservation of Lhe Geispel in its  purity and power. See text: "Hold  fast the form of sound worels." See  also his message lo Titus, nlso 2nd  chap., 2 verse." Now why this nrgencv  uf warning and exhortation ? Because  already some were endeavoring to  pervert the truth, to lead men away  from tho -simnlicty of the Gospel  Laught by Christ, and practiced by the  early Christians, anel looking into the  future. I believe he had some prophetic glimpse nf the centuries of darkness that, wero to follow : when the  word of Christ would he kept back by  the li'iichers of Christianity and the  people leel to believe that their salvation dependeel em their or  lhe will of a fellow mortal and a fellow  sinner as well. That such a'peritid eliel  come every student of history knows.  That it prevaileel among our own  itiimeeliale forefathers the existence of  this L. O. Association proves.  I. LeL us draw your attention lo  Lhe " form of sound words." ��������� What,  are the fundamentals of thn Gospel?  (a) The Holy .Scriptures aro .the  revealed will of God. They contain  all that is necessary for f.-iilh and  practice, and are able lo make all men  wise unto salvation. - And therefore  ought lo be in the hands of all. A free  Bible, "in open Bible, an honored Bible.  II, is'Gnd'*! message In .-ill. All oughL  to have it.    None should be denied.  (li) Thai Jesus Christ has become  by his death anel passion, by his re.-uir-  rection and asci'iision, the only Saviour and fiiLeices'sor for sinful man.  aiul lie is^sullh-iuiit.  (c) That men are justified by faith  alone anel not by, works, nor church,  nor creeels, nnr the intercessions nf  men.  (el) That repentance is fhe fnrsakintr  of sin anel tlie only preparation neeeleel  for saving faith.  (e.-) That eve'ry������ man is free, anel  ought lo be free in conscience, to exercise hi** private judgment in religion.  That no" State, power en* authority  .should come between him anel his Goel.  "Te aie Free'iiien in Christ Je-ns."'  ���������' Where the Spirit of t he Lord is there  is liberty."  ..Heie then, briefly put are the funila-  | God   service."     The   tortures   ot   the I   ~~j~~~~__t  Spanish Inquisition, the fires of Smith-   Jf-^  I  Held, the Massacre of St. Bai'tho'  mew's night. The hunger, the cold,  the banishment of the fathers of Scottish Covenant���������the slaughter of Protestant m in England and Ireland, are  all a matter of well nl tested history  and brings us eleiwn to the days of 20S  years ago, when the liberties of our  foref.-ithei'S in England were, being  liautplcd under foot. The constitution of the realm being endangered by  .lames II. and his Confederale Louis  XIV of France. The loading nobles  and clergy of England besought. William IIT, Lho Prince of the State nf  Orange, in Holland, to become their  King, and wilh bis wife Mary, tho  daughter of .Tames to rule over England. Ireland nntl Scotland. Was it  not, loyalty to the Gospel, to the faith  of Christ, to tho dear bought liberty of  the people eif .God. that made onr  fuLher- willing lo suffer in Bnniskillin  and Derry and at the Boyne. -They  labored and we are entered inlo their  labors, and now Ibronghoul this Brit-  ldi realm, wo rejoice in civil and lelig-  ons liberly. 'More and more tho glorious Bible i.s controlling the hearts and  lives of men. and we see the nations  that aro most1 Christian, the most,  powerful. While those nations that  for ages have heen under tiie. dominance of priestcraft,and superstition nre  toppling to their fall. Then my Rrelh-  ren, with heart a nd voire and vote and  influence, maintain lho Gospel eif  Christ, the form of sound words.  V. LisLly, seeing that wo are the  heirs of these ages eif valourousdefense  of the Gospel." What manner of persons ought, ye to he?" If you accept  this Bible.'if you rejoice in this light  anel these glorious privileges, what  kind of men ought, ye to be ?
