A communication was read from  Lewis Bros-offering to sell five acres  of the smelter townsite for the purposes cf a public recreation ({round for  $1000. After-some discussion it was  ���������decided to accept tho offer.- .   A petition was received asking that  a sidewalk be constructed along Vic-  toiia Road connecting McKen*ie and  Boyle avenues,' and also easterly a  3'ioit distance from McKenzie Avenue.  These matters were referred to the  Board ef Works. *  The same Board was also instructed  to procure plans and specification* for  excavating and erecting basement of  t'.ie City Hall on which to base tenders  for excavation. It was also decided to  obtain tenders for the removal of the  old school building to its new position,  where it will be remodelled and converted into a City Hall. ���������������������������������  .

COUNCIL OF THE  TRADE BOARD  Decide to Recommend Reduction of Membership Fee���������  Canoe River Trail Completion  To be Urged.  The Council of tbe Board of Trade  held a meeting on the evening of the  9th, when the reports of the delegations to Ottawa and Victoria were  received and adopted.  A motion was carried recording  approval of the local Government's  action in commencing the Canoe River  trail and urging that it he pushed' to  completion. The Government Agent's  requests for appropriations in Revel-  atoke riding were endorsed.  A number "of- members"having  expressed the opinion that the present  membership fee was too high, it was  decided to recommend its reduction to  $2.50 per annum.  The Columbia River Improvement  Bill was then taken up and Mr. W. A.  Galliher, M.P., was instructed to look  after the city's interests.  After a good deal of discussion Mr.  G. 8. McCarter, President of the  Boaid and Mayor O'Brien were  were appointed a committee to wait on  the C.P.R. Superintendent to ascertain  if it is possible to have the proposed  new railway station built on the south  side of the line. The meeting then  adjourned  -For Sale, Buff Orpington Eggs for  hatching, also Duck Eggs and Ducks,  apply to Mrs. R. Tapping.  New Accounting System  On the flrst of this month a new  system of accounting came in force on  the C.P.R. Instead of. us foi merly. all  clerical work dealing with the business  of the company being done in the  offices of the General Superintendent  of each division, a, system of decentrali'  zntion has been inaugurated, whereby  each Superintendent, loots after the  accounting of his own jurisdiction.  This will inciin a considerable accession  to the clerical stuff here, as Mr. Kilpal'  rick is now responsible for the accounts  of his part of the line, transmitting the  same directly tn Montreal without  reference to the General Superintend*  ent at Vancouver.  Royal Scarlet Chapter  The prominent division of the Loyal  Orange Lodge was opened on Tuesday  evening, butailjourned until Friday at  9.30 p.m., after the regular meeting of  the local Orange Lodge. Important  business will be transacted on Friday  and all brethren are urgently requested  to attend.  ANOTHER  BONANZA  Has Been Secured by Capitalists  In the Fish River Camp.���������  Large Development Work to  Be Carried on.  ing of the outcropping)) has taken  place. ' This Btate of affairs was well  exemplified a fair. years ago on some  properties near Alburni Canal, where  tha pockety lttwalts of surface concentration caused, 'the owners of claims  there-to imagine they had a bonanza,  whereas the larger portion of the rock  waa of very low grade,     . ���������!_- M -j--UT  Everything indicates that the season  just opening will be a momentous on*  for   Revelstoke   and    its    tributary  camps.     The   Fish   river basin, ingre  particularly, will be the scene .of great  activity and our neighboring towns of  Goldfields and Camborne bid fair to  rival in   rapid growth  and  enlarged  business Importance the palmiest days  of Rossland and   Nelson.     The   Fish  River ramp, consisting, aa  it* largely  does, of well defined veins of auriferous  quartz, as the permanence uf its mineral wealth Women more apparent,  bids   fair  in   the   near future to add  practically a new phase of'mining to  the Province, that of free milling gold,  the only extensive workings of which,'  in   the   past,   have   been-   the  Ymir  and the Athabasca, neai Ne?sju.  A deal, of great importanc** to the  camp in question, has, it is reported,.  just been completed by Mr. W.B.P00I,  Manager of the Ophir-L-utaSyndicate1.  and one of the most' enterprising 'and  successful mining men in tlie Province.'  After along time spent in negotiations, ubout'a week ago he acquired  the Old Homestead. Detroit and Idaho  groups, a dozen adjoining claims, from  McKay Bros., Malcolm Beaton and  William Strutt. The properties in  question are situated on the northeast  bank of Mohawk Creek, in the well  known Beatrice Basin and are separated by a short distance from the  Silver Dollar,*. Gilman und,.. Beatrice.  We have not been able ��������� to ascertain  the figure paid for the groups in .question, covering considerably over 600*  acres, hut feel sure, from' 'actual  knowledge, that the new owners are  in luck. The report has not yet been  officially authenticated, hut our source  of information is extremely reliable,  and we must congratulate Mr/Pool  and his associates on their latest  acquisition. , ���������"     *      ������,   -" *v  Regaiding the properties}3, themselves; the surface snows the* typical  slate country rock of the vicinity and  there are some 15 or "Id * well-defined  veins of gold quartz known at present,'  a number of "which ^JjAvefbeini^eroll  prospected allglving wdet*������atiifaotofy.!  retina in* free, gold: .lfH-willTbe  remembered that some tt*v*o"yeari*i' ago  a-very rich strike., was made on the  Old'Homestead, , specimens - of -. tbe  quartz taken out literally glittering  with free gold. -Assays were taken at  the time some of which jranashigh" as  $1400 to the ton. The quartz, as far as'  the ledges nre at present exposed,' has  almost entirely preserved the original  formation, very little signs of decomposition being apparent. This is of  great importance as there is little  danger of too glowing,expectations  arising from what is known as surface  concentration, whereby comparatively  barren veins appear rich in places after  extensive decomposition and weather-  It is' Intended, wa are informed, that  Mr. Pool's new acquisitions will be  extensively worked in the near future.

All members are  requested to attend..  W. W. Foster. Secretary."  When, in the year1805, gold was first  discovered in-'theBig Beiid, the smi'iico  placer mining performed showed the  district  to  be  exceptionally  rich  In  alluvial auriferous deposits.   But, ul  that time,   means  of  communication  were very limited, mid the remoteness  from every centre of population made  a trip  to the  district a very arduous  one. - Now,   all   this is  altered, and  when, with the opening of navigation,  the steamer Revelstoke commences its  regular  trips,.the journey  to  Death  Kapids..will   be  a   beautiful summei  excursion.  All supplies necessary canbeohtnined  at Revelstoke without any difficulty,  and the past experience of our mer*  chants in outfitting prospecting and  mining" expeditions is a guarantee that  not the slightest hardship will be. felt  by those visiting the Big Bend district.  About 15 miles above Death Rupids  Smith cieek, on the west, aud Gold  Stream.on tbe east.enter the Coin in bin  river practically opposite one another  and it is on these creeks that the most  promising indications are found. Gold  stream, sometime* called Gold creek,  with its tributaries from the north.  Camp, McCullough and. French, will  be the scene of active operations ns  soon as the snow is off. All the creeks  in question .have practically the same  characteristics and one'general desciip*  tion will apply to all , The formation  consists of a series of alternating  8Lbists."shales-nnd slates, witb lime and  qn'aitzite in narrow.belts interpose-  between the schists.'and ih 'es. Cn  French creek particularly, which was  the scene of much activity in the early  eighties, past experience has shown  the gold deposits tn be very rich. The  crude methods of mining in vogue at  'that'time, however, did not peimitof  exploitation on the , extensive scale  requisite for efficient' hydraulic work  on. the old" creek .bed, where, it is  believed, and 'practically proved, the  most extensive a'uriferous deposits aie  to be found.".'-'In some places < a shaft  fur as much - as.ninety fee*, has to be  sunkv'.bjjfc. where-this ihas"- been?" done  ���������������������<���������*��������� distinct- 'layers'of- pay dirt Were  prospected us the glacial strain but  from nil Indications appeals to be of  slightly if any less value tlnin the main  11* will thus bo wen that the richness  ��������� it' the creeks mentioned can hardly he  over  estimated, nnd   when   the com*  panics  holding    lc'iseliohls  are   in   a  position to commune*.*  extensive opet"  iiUoiih iiijic limn satisfactory profits  must ensue.   Hy the bcratching of the  surface, several millions have alreadv  been taken out of French, Mt-Uitlloiigh  and Camp creeks, and the old channels  will bring in a much   greater   harvest  for those with  energy and rapital to  exploit theni. It must not be forgotten  that, especially mi French creek, some  of the surface even has has not been  turned over.and It is not at all iiuproh-    ^  able that   satisfactory   values will  be, ���������*���������*���������*  obtained from the  giass  roots down.  Whatever   may   he   the   method    of  mining decided upon, it is evident that  sinking of pits to the ancient channels  will beextiemely  successful, nnd it U*  not too tn'ncli to say that the results ol  piominent Cariboo companies will be  overshadowed by  those of the richer,  more  accessible  and    easier   w01 ked  deposits,in  the   localities  mentioned.  Ample   water,   the absence of  which  reduced Cariboo's production lust yeai  to a minimum,  is at all times obtainable.     The small  lakes and creeks of  tho northern  hydraulic country  may  play out, but the Columbia river nevei  will.   The enormous expenses of clear*  ins* 300 foot beds of  cemented  gravel,  which hits to be faced in Cariboo, does  not enter into the "dead woik"   to  be  accomplished in the Big Bend, and the  Heuai.d has no hesitation in forecast*  ing a rush to piocure properties_there  as   soon -as   the   piesent  season   has  demonstrated the favorable opinion of  leaseholder und mining men generally  to be correct.

Bj'Cuttis, acting manager  of the" Nortlfwestern." Development  Company's mines at'Qoldfitelds'.'arrived'  in the city on,Friday:Just with a'gold  brick the result of the run of the 10  stamp mill. The brick1* in question  was the resnlt of milling 177 tons of  ore which-occupied about 12 days.  The weight of the brick was about 12  lbs. troy, and, as the bullion will  average $18 per ox., the total value  will be in the neighborhood of $3000.  This makes the net gold value of tbe  ore, as at present recovered, about $17  to the ton, but when the fact that the  plates'are new and take up considerable gold is recollected, it may safely  be said that the actual value of the  rock was not less than ������20. This is  certainlv high for a free milling  proposition, the mill being new, as  many are being successfully worked  at a quarter of this value.  Many citizens called at ...Barter's  jewellery store on Saturday, where the  gold brick was exhibited, and considerable interest was taken in the fresh  results of operations on Fish river.  We have repeatedly drawn the attention of our readers to this district  which is now beyond the prospect  stage, ana may be classed as the  richest and most extensive free gold  camp in the Province.  Residents of the camp were sorry to  learn that-Judge-Cunis-has to relinquish tbe management of the property  about tbe 25th inst. Since his arrival  at Goldfields he mace many friends  who will all mueh regret his departure.  He will, however, still retain hit*  interest in the company. His successor  in the management will be Mr. Frank  Blackwell, a prominent mining man of  Duluth, Minn. Judge Curtis left yesterday for the mine where he will  remain until his successor anives.and,  after relinquishing thc management of  affairs to Mr. Blackwell. the Judge  will return to his old home at Calumet.  The company's stamp mill is near the  townsite of Goldiiulds and lots are on  the up grade. Before fall quite a  thriving community will be established  there.

' The old love ol  liberty was gone. That ���������beautiful natural religion which'in its highest development,   produced   philosophers   like  ��������� Socrates and Plato Had vanished. The  Athenians followed indifferently Epicurus or Zeno, embracing, as mendo in all  human systems,' the weak and the bad.  ���������disregarding the good nnd noble. Tho  Epicureans apotheosized lust; the  Stoics made a religion of indifference oy  despair.

Under the heading   "Imperialism    in  revolution    in "infantry tactics  hai j  Chile," Tho Literary Digest; has the fol-  tbeen recently invented by a Danish officer and formally adopted by the Danish army.     This gun has all tho advantages of tho old machine gun with none  of its disadvantages.      Whereas the old  stylo gun is a  heavy piece of artillery  mount cd on wheels, the new gun weighs  only thirteen pounds nnd may bo carried,  together  with  ils tripod and  nm-  iminition,   by    a    single    soldier.    The*  lii'irxl  which  holds  the gun  is not nb-  {���������olult'ly necessary,  ns the  weapon may  be supported  on nny miiUeshit't crotch,  like an ordinary vilie, when occasion demands it.      This portable  weapon may  bo  fired   at   the   rale  of  yt)0" rounds a  minute.      Its ammunition  is carried in  curved   magazines,     each     holding    HO  rounds, several of which  may  be packed side by  side in a curved  knapsack  made for the purpose.      It may be carried into many places where a machine  gun could never be drugged, as, for in-  stance,  mountain  fastnesses,  where  tbo  .horses  nnd   mules   necessary  for  drawing artillery could  not  penetrate.  Particularly   is   it   adapted     to     defensive  warfare.     Jt has no carriage and nccd-i  no  shield  which  may  oiler  itself  as  a  mark to the shells of the enemy.      Instead it can be hidden nway during the  time  of a  bombardment..

Another use to  which  this weapon may  be put  to advantnge is the arming ol  ���������marines, to whom in the Bmnll operations on shore in which they are apb  to take part it wonld be of wonderful  assistance.      Military experts say that  the possibilities that may be found in  a  corps  of   mounted   infantry  with  a  third of its number carrying these weapons  and  the  remainder  carrying  am*  munition   nre startling to contemplnto,  as the corps thus equipped  would combine  the  qualities  of  infantry, cavalry  nnd artillery and would be   almost   invincible.  lowing :���������lt Is often said that the South  American nations regard the United  Btat.es with apprehension as a power  that is aiming at the absorption of this  whole hemisphere under cover of the  Monroe doctrine.

THE RICHEST NATION  IF  DIVIDED,, EQUALLY  WHAT    EACH  ' ONE'S SHAKE WOULD BE.  6cotch as It is Spoken.  On the occasion of a recent visit which  I paid to Tomintoul, says, a. writer  in Tho Celtic Monthly, I travelled from  Dalindalloch station by coach, along  With some natives of tho district, and a  fow strangers,who took advantage of*  the-ride to make their first mutual acquaintance. Among the visitors was a  gentleman with a very pronounced Knglish accent, who seemed lo be deeply interested inan old woman belonging-to  the district. Un fortunately, they could  not convey miich information to ona  another without the assistance of an  interpreter. The old lady explained very  circumstantially, and with gicat Wealth  of detail, that she was "rieht sair made  wi' the roomatic3, an' they gist gia  every ither stoon that dirlu a' up my  airm an' clean rooir'tlie" shouther-blcd,  till a'm nour ban* wid wi't, an' surely  a'm sair cnyoch forfochen this same day  wi' a' this traivcllin'." Later on hor  new acquaintance questioned her.... regarding the longevity of the inhabitants  of the district. When the interpreter  hnd again explained, she hastened to inform lier interlocutor : "Oo aye awite  they div sometimes wachle awa' till a  richt lang age," adding, by way. of a  striking example, "there's "mi 'niither  liersol' noo, she 'ud he a* hunner an'  twacome the morn's week���������if sht wis  livin'."  Greasy Butter. ���������    ���������   .        * j  By gTcaay or oily    butter  is meant  butter that Is soft and oily-in appear-  mice,  without the    granular    structure  and llrm texture of fii-st-clasj butter. A  ���������number of causes and conditions, cither  together or mngly, may cause tho greasy  condition.    Temperature    i'sa  frequent  cailso of gToasine.s.s, in butter,   lt is, of  course,  well  known  thai,    if butter  U  healed  to  a certain  point    (about tit)  degrees)   it  will eliungo1 from  the  solid  to  the  liquid  condition,- or"' liielt.    li niter that" lias been .melted will never regain its former texture, add Will always  be more or less greasy, im matter what  or how careful manipiilalio'u ttWiuy havo  undergone.     This   grensiness   of   butter  thai lias been  melted is'airiiriportant  charaotcr in detecting "renovated" butter.    But it is not necessary that butter be melted in order to ���������show groasl-  ness.   As is well known; butte'r soften*  rapidly as the temperature is raised before tho melting point is reached, and  "butter that has undergone any considerable   amount' of  alternate   softening  and hardening Will become more or less  gTeasy, even though it was originally of  good texture.   Butter is a mixture of a  number of fats, some of which are solid*  and  some  liquid  at  ordinary-tempera*. ���������  ture.      These* fats vary in  proportion'  under various conditions, and as a consequence  different   butters   aro   harder  or  softer according to  the  proportion  of hard or soft fats that they contain,  and-butter ma-y frequently contain so  largo a proportion of soft fats as to -be  exclude other South American  nations ! objectionable on account of its softness  18XO  from it. To this end.Chile .has not kept  faith with Bolivia or Peru in her treaties with thoss powers. There are no  wars in consequence eimply. because  Chile, being, the stronger, is able to  apply the law of conquest. l"'or this  reason there exists a fatal status quo  on bhe ...Pacific coast answering to all  tlio conditions of an armed peace. lt  is false to say that this Paeilic problem is regulated according to treaty.  Chile refuses to be bound by any treaty  whatever, feeling herself too powerful to  submit to such restraint. She conforms  in her international relations only to  .such conditions as suit herself. She adheres neither to the letter nor to the  spirit of any compact., She proposes  now treaties'1. to . the weak, but such  treaties aro. but subterfuges for the  enlargement of her territory. This ia  the plain truth in regard to Chile."  Sentiments of this nature are a source  of intense disgust to the newspapers of  Chile.      The Lei   (Santiago)   repudiates  or" oiliness. Certain foods notoibly in*  fluence the butter in this way, and it  is generally recognized that an undue  amount -of,linseed meal and some other  foods-will"result in a soft or .oily butter from the cows so fed. Lastly, an  important', source,of greasy*' butter is  caused by improper manipulation during  manufacture. If thc cream is ripened,  and particularly if it is churned at too  high, a temperaitiirc, the butter will hs  Boft;.pr, greasy. If the butter, is .worked too long,, or when it is too warm, it  will also be soft, but in this case it is  more likely to be greasy than oily. If  changes in tempftraturc, particularly in  the cream, are brought about- too rapidly, the resulting butter is likely to  suffer in texture. This raises the question of the proper temperatures for. the  ripening, churning and working, but  since these temperatures are .largely  governed by the proportion of, hard and  soft  fats  in   the  milk,  it  can* only  ba  Jtelics Found in London.

She is regarded by many in consequence  as a robber and ��������� predatory State,, but  the truth will be vindicated in the end  BRAZIL  Shakespearian   play,  he   having  himself j 'j^yxCg\\  eral into Portuguese with j  and Chile may rest assured of the ultimate respect of the world." And Tho  South American Journal (T-ondon), organ of the British investor, is prompted  to defend Chile in these terms:  "In our opinion, the idea that the  I Chilians keep steadily before them a  policy of conquest is erroneous, or at  least largely exaggerated. We believe  that they will be able to tind within  the limits of their own country ample  scope for their energies for many years  to come, and that thc most influential  part of the nation has no desire for  war. This is what the Government  ought to make manifest to the world.  They could do so by publishing widely a  descriptive account of the country's resources nnd possibilitiex of development,  and the opportunities which it offers for  immigrants and the employment of capital. This ought to be drawn up in a  systematic and practical manner, not  on such merely general and supertlcial  lines as have usually been adopted in  such works; and it ought to be supplemented by establishing properly organized information offices in Chile nnd in  tho principal countries of Europe. If  properly carried out, sueh a system of  publicity would bring immediate and  great benefita to thc republic. It  would, as we have said, tend to dissipate the idea that the Chilians must1,  perforce seek to make their living outside their new country and that there  is room for a large increase of population of industrious foreigners who could'  prosper there." Thc accompanying illustrations are from La Prensa (Buenos  "Farm and Home"-.'(Eng.)..  Key to "Profits in Poultry."  The vigor of farm poultry must be  kept up . in order to have profitable  stock,' as weak inbred stock does not  thrive or lay well. Thero is & mistake  made in calling for extremely heavy  weights in a breed. Select birds about  the standard weight for the chosen  breed, and get them thick fleshed and  solid. .Avoid a. knock-kneed or crooked-  backed' bird, and a low comb is preferable in dresse'd birds.

Then came somo delicious green turtle soup, which Judge Walker explained was prepared from the finest  fnt turtle tbe Florida buys could afford.  "No doubt, no.doubt," was the reply  In Greeley's peculiar whine, "but coldblooded animals are un abomination  tome."  The pompano, imperial fish that, lt  Is, and fresh from the Gulf, was open  to tho same objection, despite Judge  Walker's eulogy,; and that, too, was  passed. . Mr. Greeley bnrely , tasted  the accomp.*.uylng Parisian1'"1, dainty,  and shook bis head ruefully-nt the  Idea that anybody would Impair bis  digestion by cntlng cucumbers.  Shrimp salud, another New Orleans  delicacy, proved no more tempting;  shrimps, he said, looked so much like  worms that they always gave him tbe  creeps. f  "Ah, here Is something you will like*  ���������a homely dish In name," said Judge  Walker, "but fit,for the gods. It Is a  .Gallcla.hnm." And then he went on  to tell how the hogs from which these  hams were obtained were fed only on  chestnuts, making the Ucsb luscious  and delicious.  "Perhaps so; very Interesting Indeed," observed Greeley; "but dp you  know. Judge, that there is so much  talk of trichinae now-R-diiys that I  'wouldn't'dare-taste-a bit of pork."  The Judge gave up In despair. The  only things In all of the array of dainties which had beeu provided whlcl*  Mr. Greeley would eat were bread,  potatoes and cauliflower, aud he feared that he might be overloading his  stomach at that.

Not that Marjorie ever suffered her  faith in her lover to be shaken.   No;-she-lovcd him-too-dearly,tan_-  - iwas herself too true and loyal of soul  ' for that.

For some, time, they pursued their  lealthful exercise with mu.cE enjoyment.

There was one part which waa admittedly dangerous, and to this part,  In her abstraction, sho had skated.

Alarmod, she trlod to skato back into safety, but it was too late.  Tho trea-mernua Ice was breaking uf  (nail directions.  A plet-j of wale* two yards wide, and  ���������Madeline, who _.������4 witnessed her  danger with horror, skated up to tho  verge of the fatal spot, at the samo  time uttering loud cries Cor help.  Marjorle's clothes had kept her from  Elnking as yet, but lt was evident lt  was but a momentary reprieve.  Unless help was given her speedily,  ehe would disappear beyond thc  reach of human aid.  .White as. death with agitation; Madeline knelt "down at the very edge of tho  Ice, and, regardless of the danger to  herself,;' stretched out her hand' to tho  drowning girl. ���������  In a moment the ice gave way beneath her weight, and she clutched at  Marjorie, only to be drawn Into the water with her.  If help had not been at hand, neither  : Af the. two would have emerged alive.  But the gardener had seen the accident, and was hurrying   to the lako  with a ladder, .which was providentially,  "near. , i  By the aid of this they were rescued,  and were removed to the house, palo  and shivering Indeed, but not serloui-  ly the worse for their wetting.    ���������*,  They changed their' clothes, hut  .would not do aa the frightened servants advised, and go to bed.

"I owe my,  life to youl"  Suddenly Madeline bent forward, and  elaaped her in her arms. .  i "Do you think so, dear? Then remember the debt until I ask for payment. Some day Marjorie, I may ask a  life.from.ypu."  She tried to speak with affected  lightness, but there was a touch ot  real, of almost terrible earnesstness in  ber tone, which would not be suppressed, and she kept her head 'resolutely  bent so that Marjorie might not see the  flush on her cheek���������the strange, excited glitter in her eye. *-       '  "*-������       -'   *tri~2  *_C5b " CHAPTER IX. ���������    -'  )P'~ -        St. Valentine's Eve.  The next day was Sunday, and St.  (Valentine's Eve.  Mr. Hyde, who had, of course, been  .eeply concerned at hearing of the ico  -accldentr-whlch-might-*so-easlly_havo  been fatal, would not hear of either  Madeline or. Marjorie attending Devino  service at the church. i  * He himself went; and his nephews,  though not without some little demur,  accompanied him.  Out of this a little Incident arose,  .which rather discomposed Marjorie.  "Now, young men,": said the uncle,  as he rose from the breakfast table,  df you intend to get to church thla  morning, It is high time you began to  think about lt"  Edgar made a slight grimmace be-  felnd his uncle's back.  Edgar hesitated, and said something  about its being lonely for the ladles to  be left at home by themselves. ,  "Don't1 you trouble about the ladies,  my boy," eald. Mr. Hyde, cheerily, and  yet with a look of slight vexation on  bis rudy, good-humoured face. "You'll  excuse them���������eh, my dears?"  Madeline assented��������� languidly.  / Mturjorle looked up, and said, with  energy���������  "Oh, please don't stay at home on  our. account. We would much rather  you went to churth, wouldn't we, Madeline?" >  "That settles It. Come, my boys.  (Let us make a* start," said Mr. Hyde,  cheerily still but with an air which  ���������bowed he expected to bo obeyed.  He left the room the next moment,  and his   eldest   nephew   very   cooly  made, a gesture of derision behind his  back.  V This did not greatly surprise Mar-  lorlo. She was prejudiced against -Ed-  tar, and expected nothing better from  lim.  But what did surprise, and grieve  ter too, was that Charles should laugh  dt. the gesture, as If ho approved of it,  clapping his brother on the back tho  wblle, and muttering something tn his  ear which convulsed them boih with  laughter.  "A pottering old Puritan!" said Ed-  far, bonoath bis breath. "Why can't  he leave u3 alone? Goodness knows  be docs enough psalm-sluglng for tho  family I"  Charles laughed ognln nt this, and  {lien, still Jesting and grumbling, they  Quitted thc room.  Madeline glanced nt Marjorlo to seo  It sho had noticed this bit of by-play,  and perceiving from bar fnco that sho  had, sho sighed faintly, nnd said���������  "You see, Marjorlo. all ts not gold  that glitters.

"I saw Edgar was   vory "began  Marjorie but Madeline stopped her,  rather sharply,  "It was not Edgar alone," she cried,  Adding, after a moment, with groat  energy and significance: "Whatevsi  Edgar's faults may be, Charles baa  ���������worse."  Marjorie made no reply to this. ^  ��������� Knowing how passionately Madeline  foved Edgar, she was far too genorous-  nutured to say another word against  bim; and, moreover, her heart .*��������� waa  heavy as she thought of her own lover.  Loyal, loving little soul though sho  Was, she could not help,feeling that  he had lowered himself "greatly in her  CBteem.  Marjorie was no.Puritan.  '''���������v Her religion was of a sweet, simple,  cheerful kind, with no admixture of  gloom or bitterness about it.  She-was the last in the world to be  .evere on other people's faults.  But It hurt her to think her lover  could make an open jest���������even in her  presence���������of sacred things, and it hurt  her still more that he should sneer at  bis uncle who, she felt sure, had been  the best and kindest of friends to both  bim and Edgar.  Madeline had once remarked tnat  (hey owed all they had to him.  Marjorle's whole soul revolted*1  against anything like ingratitude.  And so she sat secretly mourning het  (over's shortcomings, though not loving him one whit the less because ot  ' them.  There had been such a charm in that  frank smile and sunny   fiance ot his  *aB had completely won her heart.  She could not take back lightly what  she had so fully given.  - She and Madeline spent a great pari  of the morning.* with, their   .prayer-  books, but It may be questioned whether either of them was really able to  fix her-thoughts on what she read.   .  Certainly it was a relief to both when  (he gentlemen came home for luncheon.  ' Early" in the   afternoon,   the   sky,  -.Which had   been" fairly "bright in   tha  morning, clouded over, and became a  dull, dreary grey, while a soaking rain  came down.

In a chapter on "Woman tho Obscure," he tells this s-ory, which is hero  translated from the original "cockney"  into something at least approaching English.  A fancy takin' me, says the conductor,  I drops into a place as were a cut ahovo  what I patronizes as a usual thing. I  orders my steak, cut thick, underdone,  and then I takes a look round. There  were two females as had jest done. They  were setting doing nothink. There was  a waiter opposite to them, and he weren't  doing nothink neither. Presently a gent  calls him, and oft" he goes.  Thc moment he starts to wait on someone else, they- both hollers out, "Waiter!" as if they hadn't a second to spare.  One "of them says, "Give me the bill."  "Two buttera and one bread," he says.  "Nothink of the sort," says the female.   "It's two breads and one butter."  He alters it, and hands her thc bill.  "Oh, you silly man," she says, "I wants  two bills. My friend here pays for her  own."  So he makes out two bills instead.  "Look 'ere," says one of the females,  "you've charged me for a joint, and I  never had no joint." *  ��������� "Yes," says the other, "and you've  charged me for an entree, an' I never  had no entree.", .,  "It's all the samo," says the" waiter.  "One had a joint an' the other had an  entree,.aud both is"the name price, and  I don't remember which had who."  "Wery well," says one; "then we must  exchange bills." '  - .,.  , * "Lookv ������������������ 'ere,"    says      one," .'/you've  charged mo for a* butter which I never  had,  an' you haven't charged 'me  for  "bread."   '.  "Mine is wrong, too," says the other,  "because he's charged me for a bread I  never had, an' no butter, whicli is right."  "You tell me ono bread; two butters,"  says the waiter.  "Yes," she says, "but I meant to say  two breads and one Hutter, and anyway  you ought to know without me telling  you, an' I never had neither."  - He alters them and gets them worse  than before; then he tears up both' and  starts fresh. After about three tries he  got both bills made out to suit 'em, and  then one of thc ladies pulls out her purse  and says that, after all, she'll pay for  both, because she owes the other two  shillin's, and the other's bill being two  an' nine, if the other pays her sixpence,  that'll be right, because six and three is  nine. '  Then the two started discussing which  owed the other.' I didn't stop to see tlie  finish. When I left one was eleven an'  li'pence to the good,' and the other was  saying, "If I takes back the shilling an'  the penny stamp I givc3 you, and hands  you tho difference atween what you've  j*,,,*-1* nnd what I paid yesterday, then  Mi__l owe me twopence."

'Tt will only be necessary tor you  to :drop about half a teaspoonful ot  tho mixture Into this cup of coffee each  morning," the circular said, "and thc  taste for tobacco will gradually depart  from bim. Ho may not cease the use  of tobacco Immediately, but within a  week ho will begin to abhor tobacco  if the mixture is clvcn to him falthi  fully every morn ins."  And eo tho young wife sent her little $2 on and got a flagon of thc tobacco cure.  "Pretty bum coffee thi;", morning,"  ho remarked dryly the tlrat time she  dropped tho half-tenspoouful of tho  mixturo tnlo the cup.  "H'a the* tiuuie as we've been using  right along," she replied, craftily.  Now, lo nnd behold! ho was a pretty smooth proposition himself, aud ho  hnd. unbeknownst to her. seen the  package holding tho IIubuii of ugln tobacco mixture when lt was dcllvcicd.  So after dluner that evening he produced a large bulky package of line-  cut tobacco trom his poclcci and took  therefrom a plcntoous chew ot tobacco., It was the firet chew he had even  taken In her presence, and she marvelled thereat, but she determined lo  persist with the "treatment."  "Dead rank chlckory again this  morning, Isn't lt?" he inquired at  breakfast the next morning.  "Im cure It tastes the same to mo,"  ���������he replied.  That evening after dinner ne produced a short, black clay pipe and a  package of a new kind of tobacco thnt  Was as black as the ground work of a  Jolly Roger.  "Thought I'd bring this old dudcen  up from the oflice." he explained  cheerfully. . "It's as sweet ae anui."  Whereupon he filled the house with  the aroma of punk that was strong  enough to break rock.  "This grocery, person who gets all of  my wage_ Is certainly doing us on the  coffee game," he remarked when he  taeted his cup next morning.  "Really," she said, gazing innocently at the ten-cent bunch of asters In  the middle of the table, "I can't detect  any difference.' (  "And yet there are low foreheads  who don't believe that all women are  actraese**," said lie to himself on tho  Way to his office that morning.  ; That evening he brought home a box  et auction stogies, - and ��������� after he had  smoked: one' ot them after dinner all  of the people In the neighboring flats  stuffed cotton In the. hall: door keyholes  and clo-aed the, hall.transoms.  "I must persist though," thought hla  "baffled little wife; gloomily.  "Coffee tastes like stewed gunny-  eack again this morning," h"e remarked at the next breakfast. She felt a  bit sorry for him, but she was determined to use' up that flagon ot "agin-  tobacco"lf she had to chloroform him  and pour lt down his throat.  That evening, howrver, her resoln-  tVon deserted her. After dinner, for  the first time to her knowledge, he  pulled out a package ot cigarettes,' lit  one and began to smoke it.  She went upstairs, poured out the  reraalnlng'portlon of her-$2 worth ol  agtn-tobacco and carefully hid the bottle  "Coffee's   all   right this   morning,"  said he at breakfast the next day.*  .   "Yea?"  she  Inquired, r.bsently.  When he. had finished his dinner  that evening he lighted one of his  usual brand of good cigars.

T__=  __>,/  Yae Thoughtful Shah  The kindly consideration of the Shah  toward a dentist whom he summoned  during his recent '-visit in Paris is described by the London "Telegraph," but  it is evident that if the Shah was  thoughtful for the.dentist he was not  troubled by any solicitude for the feelings of his attendants.  His Majesty suffered from toothache  soon after his arrival in Paris, and sent  for a dentist. The dentist looked at his  Majesty's teeth, and advised the extraction, not of one, but of several. Tho  operation was postponed for a day, but  when the "dentist returned he; found the  Shah all right, and apparently in a playful mood. The toothache'had gone, and  there was no longer any need for the  dentist's: services.  As the dentist was preparing to leave,  the Shah called him back, saying, "I do  not like to have troubled you for nothing, so, as* you have come, you had better draw a molar from each of my counselors."  The Shah spoke with his eyes fixed on  the ground, and in a meditative manner.  When he looked up all thc counselors  had vanished, with thc exception of the  grand vizier, who manfully stood his  ground, unmindful as to whether his all-  powerful master was in joke or iu car-  nest. The other counselors evidently believed in the earnestness of the master's  utterances.  This anecdote is something like the  one told of tho Shah's predecessor, who,  when in Paris, asked to see Monsieur  Dcibler at work with the guillotine.  When he was informed that at the lime  there was nobody wailing for execution,  lie proposed that one of his suite should  be handed over to Dcibler and deenpl-  iat*A *���������   '*    ChainDs-i**'- ,  *         A Competent Wit new.  fjnlted States District Judge Williams, now holding court In Topeka,  tells a funny'story.

The convention of the Provincial  Teachers' Institute, which concludes  today, has been 11 most interesting and  instructive one. As the profession of  teaching becomes more recognized as  a science every day: meetings of this  character for the intetclmnge of  experience cannot but lie of great  value. British Columbia lias reason  to be proud of its teaching staff; men  antl women who. in most instances,  could have obtained a much more  lucrative livelihood in other walks of  life-  BILLY'S BIG BLUFF.  We have no hesitation in saying  that tbe bill introduced hy the Provincial Secretary and dubbed ihe "'Conciliation Act," is the product, of a  brain overheated with self assurance  and afflicted with the "tiied feeling"  rtf a peripatetic politician trying to  hold his job. The measure, which has  been heralded by the faithful and  telegraphed to Mie east as an impi-ove-  --i'ieSt_on_yie_la.\vs.oLXew-=/.ealand.=the  findings of the Anthracite commission  and the pet hobby of Sir \Vm. Mulock,  resolves itself, upon the slightest* consideration, into a preamble and fourteen sections of tommy rut. Intact,  the hill in (jiiestion can be most aptly  de-Miril-ed as the New Zealand Act  reduced by the elimination of all  t-ections that make'tha latter operative.  The ambitious title, "An Act for the  -prevention of strikes and lock outs."  lias   no   bearing   whatever on the hiil  itself:   for  as noon as the Conciliation  J3oard has sat, nnd published its report  in the Gazette and a. good government  newspaper,   the   employees  may   gii-  ���������uhead and  strike till-they're black in  the   face.     A   conciliation    board   of  three is  provided   for, but no machinery for Its selection: and  no remuneration at the  hand of the Government  can   be   given   to the members.   The  only   effect   of   the   bill   therefore, if  passed, will be to have a committee of  three to take evidence, hut deliver no  verdict, and   to   make   a   report, the  longer the better, which will be handed  over to a paper   in want of political  pap for publication.    This having been  done   the   "Act. for the prevention of  strikes and lock-outs" will have made  its   little   bluff and employer and employee can then pioceed to lock-out or  strike if they feel   so inclined.     It is  peculiar that this unlucky fledgeling is  JEST SO.  ���������I0,(XX) acre Prentice introducing a  Small Holdings Hill is an example of  unconscious humour.

They visited- the Embassy, hut  learned that all tickets were srokcii  -for weeks. In advance. The attaches,  of the Embassy could suggest rio way  Jn which they could secure admittance  ���������unless they knew some member. After a day's unsuccessful effort to place  a Member of Parliament on their ac-  ���������rjiiaimance list, they visited fha Cun-.  a.-d agent who had shown them courtesies when they first landed. He'  could suggest nothing, until lie ro-  mpmbered that he knew a member or"  1hc lower house. He promised to see  ���������what he could do for lhe tourists.  That night he came to their hotel  "bringing them two tickets from' hla  "Member acquaintance which would  admit them to the House of Commons  Tl'l.en they suggested their desire to  ���������visit the House of Lords to several  ���������Englishmen, the Britishers simply  ssjied in wonder at the mpn whose  ���������nerve would prompt them to think of  luch a thing.  On July* 19 the tourists wsre.ad-nilt*  ted to the gallery or the House* cf  ���������Commons, where they listened for  come time to the weighty discussion  on the advisability of permitting the  Irish language to be taught in the  ���������schools of Ireland. , This debate soon  lierame too tame for the Americans,  and they left the House in quest of  lai per game. '../:���������;���������.,  They started down the long hall  "fr-adiug to the assembly chamber of  lhe upper: house. Soon they wero  stepped by the uplifted hand of a  ruard. ,"S-s-t. You mustn't come here.  The House of Lords is in session."  The Americans were not to he stopped by-.such', trifles';'. They, engaged  "the guard in conversation, and soon  they had secured his graces.  Then they explained the situation and asked bim to help <; them  get into tbe House.  "Don't you know some Lord?" inquired  the  good-natured   fellow.  The Americans admitted that they  had no lords on their calling list. Tho  guard scratched his- heart in perplexity.    Finally lie suggested:  "Well. I'll tell you. Just bide a,bit.  ban' per'aps some lord will come out."  The tourists "bided several bits,"  Tim none came. More scratching of  ���������liis bead brought another idea to the  ^uard. who suggested:  "Kow, don't tell no one that I told  you, but go down to the door there  and inquire for Lord Aberdeen, and  _ee if you can make it."  The Americans believed that this  ���������was good advice, as it put them one  euard nearer the goal. They presented themselves to the stiff officials,  who stood at the outer door of tho  House, and Mr. Smith said:  -We would like to see Lord Aberdeen." : -   ���������  "The guards were Inclined to argue  1he question, but the Americans stood  their ground, emphasized their demands, and convinced the guards that  they were important dignitaries.

While we stood debating what we  ������hculd do next, tbe guard loudly  announced: "Lord Aberdeen.' Turning, wc saw behind us a pleasant looking, but very dignified, well-dressed  man of middle age, and then we knew  vp had got to see the game to the end.  Putting on bis best brand of bluff  Mr. Smith stepped up to his Lordship  ���������nd began:  "Mr. Aberdeen, we owe yon an apol-  egy. but we wish to get into thu  Mouse of Lords, and we were referred  to you to take us in."  "Mr" Aberdeen was too much sur-  jrri-ed to speak at first, so the young  attorney explained:  "We have just come from the House  ���������of Commons."  "How did yon get into the House of  Commons?"   inquired   Lord   Aberdeen.  "On tickets from a member."

In Sicily, says The Daily Graphic, ono  of (lie most celebrated brigands of today is a Frunce-'co Varsnlona. Ho has  quite outdone his predecessor Muso-  lino, ns ho has eluded the carbineers  nnd soldiers for l(*n years, and has not  yet been taken. Like all members of his  "profession" ho is devoutly religious,  and he will run nny risk to get to a  certain shrine of tlie Virgin near Cas-  tronovo, where ho considers himself under particular protection. A picture of  him, which accompanies The Graphic's  story, was, the article proceeds, taken  under the most peculiar circumstances.  An amateur photographer passing the  shrine just at the moment of the arrival of a man and woman thought the  scene picturesque, and "took" it without their being aware of the fact, absorbed as tliey were in prayers. Not  liking the threatening air of -the man  the photographer 'eft hurriedly. Wishing to induce some peasants in tho village of Cammarala to pose for him, he  showed this picture, together with others, to the villagers, who instantly recognized the man as the brigand, Varsnlona, and the woman as his associate.  The sensation created was immense,  but the photographer had lo decamp, as  ���������Varsalono. heard of tho matter and was  furious at having been photographed.  It is related of Varsnlona that, having  committed an extraordinarily brutal  murder, he wished to go to his special  shrine, but it was gun riled by the carbineers. He felt it imperative to get  rid of them and resorted to strategy.  First his female nssociato came wringing her hands and crying, "That awful  Varsnlona has not only burned down  the house, but has murdered my mother.*' Then Varsalona himself rushed  forward, disguised as a shepherd, shrieking, "What are you good for if you  can't catch that wretch; he has 3toIen  all my sheep." "Where is he?" cried  the eager carbineers, falling into the  trap. "A few miles down the valley, to  tbe south," returned tie other. Whereupon ono carbineer loft hurriedly, and,  when he was out of sicht the other was  bound and gagged, with the help of tho  girl, who was as strong as any man. In  this condition the unfortunate soldier  was left while the brisand said his  prayers, and thus lie wns found when  his bafiied companion icturued.  ^ An _Opp_oritunity_to_Buy-   ���������Just before wo ...ft.

Marriego has always Deon one of  the world's greatest themes. Interest  never Hags in the subject. Men have  tired of their own matrimonial experiences sometimes, but of other people's never.  The great thing, as a wise philosopher said, ie to get the right girl.  There is no stereotyped' way of getting her. Just as men have found different ways of proposing, so there  havo been endless ways in which men  havo. met their fates. A romantic  clement is mixed up .with most lovo  affairs.  Horace Greeley nnd Mary Young  Cheney were married the first day  they met. They had corresponded for  somo time, a mutual friend, who was  something of a matchmaker, having  brought this about. She was young  and beautiful and all his fancy painted her, but she was much disappointed In his appearance, to much so Ihat  when he appeared before her, having  proposed and been accepted by letter  and the marriage day fixed, she frankly told him that although she married  him, she was not in love with him.  Their married life was long and happy and the loss of his wife was _  blow which he did not long survive.  The second time that Bismarck "met  Fraulein Johanna Puttkammer he'  kissed her soundly in the pre: once of  a number of guests. The immediate  effect of this embarrassing and  shocking behavior was the prompt  announcement of the betrothal, which  was soon followed by the mairiage.  The first time Mary Todd met Lincoln she said to her sister: "That  man will be President one of those  days. He will make a husband to bn  proud of." About that time Linco'n's  chances of becoming President seamed  as remote as possible, and Mary's  sister laughed the Idea to scorn. A  few months afterward Mary Todd was  married to "Ugly Abe," and In fourteen years the prediction was fulfilled  As a child the future Mrs. Lincoln  had prophesied that she would become  the wife of a President of the United  States.  The first August Belmont's marriage to Commodore Perry's daughter  grew out of a duel. At his first meet-'  ing with the lady, a blooming' Baltimore belle, at the theatre, he challenged a man who made some remark  reflecting on the virtue of women generally. When the smoke of thc simultaneous fire of the two pistols cleared  away it was found that the bully bad  a bullet through his heart and Belmont a ball In the leg. He became a  hero of tbe hour; * proposed to the  beautiful Miss Perry and was accepted. He said It was her noble face that  nerved him to resent the imputation  on her sex.  With Henry Stanley the explorer, It  wa3 "love my daughter, love me."  Mrs. Tennant persistently refused to  consent to her daughter marrying,  ���������Dolly is all that I have left, and I  can not, shall not, part with her. But  lo entreaties she finally yielded. "I  want your daughter for my wife,"  Stanley said, "give her to me, arid do  you at the same time become my  mother, father, brother and sister."  "She Is yours," repled mamma, "and  so am I."

I was  :he youngest, so thnt it never was 1.  Now, you would bo surprised to know  the effect, mental, moral and physical,  that shoes havo on a man. 1 consider  that my career, aye, and my character, hlngo upon tho possession of a  pair. When I went to school in Virginia thirty years ago, of course I was  barefooted, 1 was a quiet youth,  strong for my ugo, but phlegmatic  ind would put up with a lot nitlie.r  than got into a light.  "My particular enemy In the school  was an impudent and conceited   boy,  somewhat older than myself.   Ho was  the son of our family doctor, nn only  son, and the proud possessor ot a pair  of shoes, shoes of    tho old    country  typo,  with  thick soles  adorned with  plenty of steel.   You see we were not  utterly poverty    stricken.      We    had  a family doctor.   You couldn't cxnect  a Southern gentleman to be able   to  stand for a family doctor and shoes  tor his family at. one and  tho same  time.   My   enemy was   forever   tormenting     me,     but   I     endured    H  silently for a long time.   At last ona  day my patience would endure it no  longer.   I fell upon him and a sanguinary conflict ensued.    We fought for  an  hour  or more.      We fought like  windmills in a hurricane.    It is true  we did not often hit one another.   Wo  were usually too close or too far off.  but we  smote    everything in    sight,  trees, walls and particularly the air.  Tweedledum and Tweedledoe were not  a marker to  lis.     We    managed    to  blacken   each other's eyes and    bleed  each other's noses, chiefly through tho  contact of our heads.  "Finally, however, my enemy bethought him of his superior armament. He drew back and delivered upon my unfortunate bare shanks a kick  of cruel force and precision. I can  feel to-day the impact of that mass of  leather and steel. It was agony. 1  surrendered unconditionally. Now  began a period of the most heartrending humiliation and misery. Wherever I went that wretched shod youth  followed. I was his slave. I ran*his  errands. He thwarted me in all mv  undertakings. He stood on his ste.nl,  and leather between me and the smallest taste of enjoyment.  "There was a girl, a, sweet little  blue-eyed thing of twelve summers,  ���������ny flrst love who .was to me as all  the world, including the village candy  store. With her I would commune under the trees near the village RChonl.  With her I would wax gallant and  eloquent. Yankees I would slay by  the score, rather than that a hair of  her head should be disturbed. I wished her to believe me a Paul Jones and*  a Stonewall Jackson in embryo, only  with a spice of wickedness.  " "I believe I * should have succeeded  but for that horrid boy with his shoes.  One day whon I was holding forth to  my lady love in an especially lofty  strain, the wretch came sauntering  past. As he took in the situation, his  eyes lighted up with malicious joy.  He made straight for me.  *' 'Get out/ he said in tones of peremptory conteptm. 'I want to talk to  Delia,'  "For a moment, as the spirit of  Jackson and Jones burnt bright in my  breast, I was for giving battle. But he  merely raised his foot and I saw the  flash of steel beneath the leather.The  fire of my valor was quenched. I turned one last despairing glance on Delia,  who was laughing and slunk awav.  fi"he horror of those shoes was upon  tne and my knees knocked' together.  "But I* swore vengeance, and all  things come to the man who knows  how to wait. That winter my father  carried through successfully-a pieco  of business. Result, the whoU'fa-mly  was shod. My own footgear was especially magnificent. No shoes, mind  you, but boots, with stout leather  reaching even unto the knee. Homer  was all right when he made the well-  grieved Achaeans the victors.

But burning with the  DEATH   BY   HANGINQ.  tt lithe Most Exaggerated ol All Iluilci.  of Execution.  "I have madovtho subject of death  by hanging a long study," said Dr. I>.  S. Lamb, uu ox-surgeon of the United  States army. "From my observations  during my experience iu the army, I  feel justified in saying thnt death by  hanging Is tho most exaggerated of till  modes. It may bo immediate and  without symptoms, but tho subject  must pass through three stages before  deiith.  "In the first stage tho victim pusses  Into a pnrtlnl stupor lasting from  lliirly seconds tn twu minutes, lr.it this  i.s generally governed by the length of  tho drop, list* weight of the body, aud  tho tightness of the const ruellou.  There Is absolutely no pain In this  istnge; Iho feeling Is nil her line of  pleasure. The subjective symptoms  described aro Intense bent In the  head, brilliant flashes of light In the  eyes, deafening sounds in tho cars,  ntid a heavy, numb feeling In tho  lungs. In the second stage, tho subject passes Into unconsciousness, and  convulsions usually occur. In tho  third state all Is quiet except the beating of the heart. Just before death  the agitation Is renewed.- but in a different way .from that in tho second  f*tato. The feet aro raised, the tongue  has a peculiar spasm, the chest heaves  the eyes protrude, from tho orbits and  oscillate from silled to side, and tho  pupils dilate. The pulse can, in most  cases, be felt ton minutes after the  drop.  "I once knew a man who was desirous of ascertaining if thoro was any  suffering by hanging, nnd In order to  find out he placed a rope around his  heck and stepped off a bench. Intending to step back again, but he became immediately unconscious, and  would have died in a few.minutes hud  it not been for the timely arrival of  a friend. Ho said he experienced all  the feelings that I mentioned lu -the  first stage."���������St. Louis Globe-Democrat  OLD FORT HAYS  TThfreupon Thero M m Mori*.

He was born in a  small cabin on tlio Big South Fork of  Nolln Creek, In La ltuo county, Kentucky, which is about three miles  from Hodgcnsvlllc.

The most famous mllitnry post ,*in  the Kansas frontier has. by the pas-  sago of the Fort Mays bill by Con-  gress, been wiped out of existence.  This fort, which was for many years  Ihe central point of the army opera-  lions against the redskins, has for  years been deserted.- Us 7,001) acrep  havo been leased to cattlemen and the  splendid timber that is nnequaled in  Western Kansas has been furnishing  tho settlers with furl. Nineteen big  frame cottages, the ollleers' homes, the  barracks and training quarters, have  been unoccupied, nnd It will ho a  great delight to thc people of this  section to sec them filled with students of tho State normal school and  the State agricultural school, both or  which nre under the bill to havo  branches there.  This fort wns the barrier against  'the Indian rnlds thnt marked the last  attempts of the redskins to Irightcn  the people of tho State. When tho  Cheycnnes came down from tho  Northwest the soldiers of Hays, with  the assistance of those from Wallace  and Marker, met them and drove  them back, saving the lives of thousands of settlers. Gen. George For-  sythe followed Roman Nose into -the  Upper Republican countrv. and thero,  with his band of 100 soldiers, was surrounded by fully 1,000 of the redskins. For three days they were held  there, and then were rescued by-succor brought by two scouts who escap-  td and went back to the fort. It was  found thatitlie Imprisoned soldiers  had been more than victors, for they  had killed more than a dozen for ev- ,  ery ono of their own number that fell.  Roman Nose himself was among the  killed.  There was another scare In the latter 70's, when tho people as far cast  oa Topeka felt uneasy, but the Indians  did not come so far as on the earlier  occasion. It Ihcn became apparent  that there was no further need of the  maintenance of- thc post, and it was  abandoned a few years after. All  this time the buildings have stood  empty, and thc caretaker has had the  lonesome task of looking after them.  Fort Hays has had an eventful history. It was originally called Fort  Fletcher, and was located fourteen  miles south of here on thc Big Muddy.  One day the creek was swelled by a  storm and the waters drove the soldiers out'of the fort. Several colored  soldiers who were too slow were  drowned, and Gen. Pope ordered tho  location changed to the present site.  The buildings were then erected and  improvements made.  The town of Hays City, which was  then founded a short distance to the  north, was a rough place, being tilled  with cowboys and frontiersmen who  followed thc building of .the railroad.  The City Council granted thirty -seven  saloon licenses lhe flrst day that it  met., There' were "killers" . without  number,"and* on the slopes ot a littlo  hill.were laid the victims of .their  prowess. It was called Boot Hill, and  there,lie forty-Ave of the distinguished gentry, who'died with their'boots  on, some being known by their reaf  names'and- some not; It will never  bo known who really were laid to rest  in the unceremonious fashion .of the -  frontier days,- for now it is too lato  to find out.  "Wild Bill" was Marshal of the  town for a while, until one day ��������� he  shot three soldiers on the street, and  thee It' was healthier for him to go  hence. He went, and was next beard  of at Abilene, where he was again  Marshal, with a predilection for kill**  ing.  -   ,  The most famous event in tbe'history of the fort was the raiding of tho  army stores' in 1869. Thc government  then had a great many stores there  and the surplus that could not''bo  cared for at the fort was piled up "  along the railroad track wilh tws  watchmen to guard it. One of them,  John Hays, went across the street one ���������  night and entered a saloon, to get a  'drink. As be .went in he was met by  t.vo soldiers from the fort, who,  without provocation, killed him. The  soldiers were colored and were drunk.  They went into a barber shop and  broke mirrors and scared the proprietor to the roof of his shop. He went  to the fort and .when the men were  ranged in dress parade by order of the  Colonel he picked out the desperadoes.  /J*hejr_were_.taken_to_Hays_and_shut_up =_  in a cellar that served as a jail. That  night they were taken out by the citizens and strung up to the railroad  bridge. In 187*1 the Ninth Infantry  (colored) tried to get even with tha  town, but in the battle that ensusd  six of their number were left dead-In  the street. There were many other  fatalities In the conflicts -between.tho  town and fort, and the soldiers found  ihat they had a town of fighters to  deal with. ;  The old-timers, like thc late Henry  Inman and Gen. Forsythe, tried their  mettle here and found honor. Now.

What the Spanish authorities believe
to be the ashes of Christopher Columbus
were deposited in a special mausoleum
in Seville last month. They aie thc
ashes which were removed from the.
cathedral in Santo Domingo and taken
to Havana after the-Spanish ceded the
island in 1795. When Cuba ceased to Ik-
Spanish territory the ashes wore carried to Spain. The people of Santo
Domingo insist that the remains'of Columbus .still rest in their cathedral, and
that when, in the eighteenth century, thc
Spaniards removed the sarcophagus," they
took ihe one which contained the body
of the eldest sou of the explorer. That
their claim is well founded was conclusively shown by _\ A. Ober in his investigations into the subject for the Columbian Exposition. Aside from the ineiits

"If, however, your work is not all unpleasant, then, stop your constant fault-

Walk a portion of the way if possible,
and amuse yourself by deep inhalations
of fresh air. There is great enjoyment in
mere breathing, if you know how to do
it.
"We often hear it said of a man that
he does not know enough to go in when
it rains. Such ignorance is much less
reprehensible than not knowing enough
to breathe, and there arc tens of thou-
'sands of human beings who belong to
that category. Life and work assume
much more interesting aspects when we
learn how to breathe. If all the way to

sorry for yourself because life is monotonous, you are building the wall higher

A Young; Detective.
There is a ten-year-old boy in Boston
whose mother thinks he is deslined to
become a noted detective. One day he
was begging for permission to try his
hand at mending a broken umbrella
over which his father was working, and
at last he was sent out of the room on
an errand.
When he returned his .father and
mother were talking, and the umbrella
had vanished,
"I know where you've put it," he
said, after a glance around the room.
"You've put it in that closet, and "
"Well, where-else should I put it!"
demanded his father, impatiently ,* but
the mother waited for her boy to finish.
"I know it's there," he said, triumphantly, "because whenever you open
the closet door thnt photograph on the
end of the bookshelf falls down, and it's
down now. And I know 'twas father
put it in, for mother would have stood

story "of the nobleman who saved
his estates to his heirs by rising
from the block and walking three steps
after his head had been cut off.   This ar-
fued something like intelligence in tho
ody.    Dr. Oliver Norton, a recent investigator, argues that all the thinking,
power is in the head, and the,axe docs
not end it.   Dr. Norton'has been in thc
naval  service  for'eighteen years.    He
^ms been around the world several times.
When the allied forces marched to the
relief of Pekin' he accompanied them. - It
waa on this expedition'that he gathered
the data that form lhe basis of his declaration that the death of a man beheaded is not instantaneous.   At Canton
he witnessed the execution of 3G Chinese
in one afternoon, and studied,the gruej*
some spectacle from a purely scientific
standpoint.   Dr. Norton said: "It was on
a Sunday afternoon in last November
that the wholesale execution took place.
I was standing outside n pottery where
official   execution   ground   is    situated,
when   there   were   loud   shouts   and   a
crowd of Chinese came running up.   The
30  condemned' men   followed  in   litters
carried   by  coolies.    The   men's  elbows
were  drawn   backhand  pinioned;   their
hands were hound together, and heavy
irons  were  on   their  legs.    The  litters
were  tinned over, and  tlieir occupants
spilled out on the ground.-  Seven came
in thc fiist batch, and" these were forced
to kneel.in the street and wait nearly

Piracy-and murder were the crimes for
which the majority of the men were to
be killed.   When thc others arrived they,
too, were made to kneel, the party being  arranged in  a   long  line,  two  and
three abreast.    A lag was attached lo
each   man's  piglnil.  ami   a  similar   tag

official, with a red umbrella, came out
to   see  that  justice   was   done,   and   a
guard of 15 soldiers lined up lo prevent
any attempt at a rescue.   Jinny of the
condemned    men    exchanged    farewells
with friends in  the crowd of onlookers,
but there were no signs of grief or collapse on the part of nny one.   Two executioners performed the entire 30 dcc.ipi-
tutions.   The headsmen were armed with
heavy   two-handed   swords.      They  did
their work cleanly and rapidly, nnd in
all but 'three cases the heads fell at a
single stroke.   A remarkable feature of
the occasion was the demeanor of the
spectators.    As  the  sword fell  on  the
first victim there was u wild outburst of
cheering, and  this   was  repeated  after
each stroke.   I asked a Chinese the reason for the demonstration, and he said
that it was to make the doomed men
brave.   ...   As  Uhe  heads fell  I examined them closely.   There would be a
swift upward movement of the eyes, an
expression of surprise would come over
the face, as if the'victim were wondering what  had  hit him,  thc lips would
move as if in an attempt to speak, and
then  the faces would tuin pale, and a
faint, which Bpeedily gave way to death,
would follow.   Many of the faces showed
looks of intelligence at the instant the
head fell, but this, of course, was only
for a second.   In a number of cases a
decided  effort  to   swallow   was   shown,
and lcpeated several times.   In some instances there was a pronounced elTort to
speak, judging from the expressions nnd
movements of the lips.    There were no
���convulsive movements in any of the bodies   or  legs,   the  heads  aluiic   fallowing
signs of life.

Following is an extract, from " Tbe  Advance Advocate " for April, the official  organ of the "Maintenance of Way  Employees"' i-ublishod monthly at St.  Louis, Mo.  In a recem address in San Francisco,  Cal., one, Estes, who i.s president of a  mixed organization of railway employees  which has attracted some attention on the  Pacific Coast, stated "that no effort had  ever beeirniiuie" to organise-the-Trackmen " until the task was undertaken by  tlie organization he represents. Mr.  Estes knew that he was stating a falsehood al the lime for he knew of the  existence ot" the Trackmen's Brotherhood  al the time when he was fighting hard to  have his ambitions recognized an*.! to have  himsell elected President of lhe O. R. T.,  but since those who knew him best  decided ihat he was not the man to lead  the hopes ami preside over the destinies  of the "men of the key," and turned liim  down very coldly in that organization, and  since none ol the other established railway organizations saw fit to lake up Mr.  Kstes and his grievances, he .decided, he  would start a little'organization of his  own, nol so much for the good he might  do to the toiling thousand** in Ihe railway  servii-c, as for lhe purpose ol securing  funds from lhem to carry out his work of  retaliation against those who failed to see  and recognize his greatness. If Mr.  Estes thinks il will be anything to his  advantage lo utter such palpable falsehoods ns the one above referred to, he  has placd a different estimate upon lhe  character and intelligence ol men in Ihe  railway service io thai whicli has been  held by lhe leaders of organized labor.  Men in the railway service who have  shown themselves to have, the intelligence  to get together, lhe determination lo slick  together, and the courage lo fight together feir improved conditions prefer lo  remain in their class organiz-itii'iis which  have shown abilily lo secure results.  Many of lliese. men remember wilh sorrow  their previous connection with general  organizations like the" K. of L. and lhe  A.R.U., which failed miserably in their  efforts to hasten the mille'niiini, and Ihey  leel thai il is only a question of lime���������and  a shorl lime al that���������when Ilie U.

AllllltlCHrt  lie said, in opening, that, the lust  convention at Victoria had thought it.  would bea. good thing if the nexl  meeting could be held in the Koolenay.

In this  manner there would be a convonl ion  each year, either of the local or the  Provincial association. lie also urged  Ihat ,inoilier . Institute lie formed,  embracing Cariboo.

He was pleased to be able to state  that British Columbia waa lo receive  one -scholarship tinder the Rhodes  Bequest of the value ol" about, $15**0  yearly, which would pay all the  expenses of the holder at Oxford and a  visit to the continentduring vacations.

Clark, M.A , of Nelson, at two o'clock,  and after a few minutes general discussion Mr. D.'Blair, drawing muster  at. the Normal School, was called upon  to give ah address on " Drawing��������� use  of the Authorized Books." This  address, which was -technical in its  character, was listened to with deep  altcntion. The speaker took up the  various lessons in the primary grades  and showed the wrong way of teaching. .Several valuable suggestions  were also given as lo the necessity of  giving pupils an exact understanding  nf elementary, geometric figures. The  address caused considerable instruct ive  discussion, a large, number of teachers  taking pftrt, lhe Biihjeet iippetu-iiig.  to  1'ACIFIC COAST   HISTORY. '  Mr. Gosnell's lecture on Pacific  Coast History was -listened to'with  deep attention and the many unique  phutngraphs,.reprodaced on the elides  shown., were not only evidences of  great i-'eseanh, but also of a complete  mastery "of the subject. The prelude  lo the addiesswas a rapid recapitula"  tion of the contrasts between'- condi"  tions previous to the exploration of  America and lhe present. Mr. Gosnell  briefly reviewed the careers of the  noted soldiers and navigators who, in  their vii ions attempts trying to find  another route to far Cathay, hud  practically without knowing it stuof  bled on the New VVoild. From the  discoveries of Marco Polo and the  earlier vo.tges of de Gama, interest  had been aroused in the question, and  although the actual, "first footer" from  Kurope in this_ continent will ever  remain a* subject of discussion, he  thought there was every reason to  believe that this honor fell on tbe  vikings of the north. Even today, in  his opinion, the north west const was  only in the tadpole stage nnd from  PiTgetrSohiid'io Cape Scottr was~ngaiir  hecoining the centra of attraction in  the world. Trade between the Euro*  pean countries and the Orient and  .South seas had come to the front of  recent years mote ".particularly than  ever before and was practically the  keystone of industrial progress. Such  b*ing the case our Province had an  enviable future before it, and by  reason of the convergence of all  transcontinental lines to the region  mentioned. British Columbia with  its natural wealth and'geographical  posi'.ion would become the banner  province of the Dominion. Mr. Gos*  nell then rapidly.traced the history  of the early settlements in California,  Oregon, Alaska Hnd B.C.. and, at the  conclusion of his able address waa the  recipient of many congratulations  "*���������   ' ��������� b_blythefirst.tr)  and pictures the  ly history of the Pacific Const.

Ottawa, April * 11 ��������� [Special] ���������  Parliament adjourned on Wednesday  night for the Easter holidays,  The consideration nf thu public  works estimates brought from Ihe  opposition a stringent criticism nf the  government's extravagance. At the  Dominion Capital the public buildings  are overflowing with civil servants,  and private property has been rented  at a cost of $33,000'per annum.  The government refused to give any  information in regard to Iraus-t-onti-  nentul railway lines.  The  government's  negleet   to provide a satisfactory mail service from  the mainland to Prince Edward Island  was veiy strongly'condemned by Mr.  Hughes.Liberal, and other speakers. *.'  Mr.  Smith's  (Wehtworth)   hill    to  amend fruit marks act was introduced.  Apiotest from  the Yukon  miners,  was read asking the  government toi  refrain from granting concessions to  privat.eindividiials.. If the practice is  continued, it will result in the ruin of  thc gold fields.  ,'  A large deputation of labor  waited on the' government aud protested against the importation of alien  labor. This evil has extended to the  Kingston Locomotive Works where  engines are being built for, the Inter-*-  colonial. "Thev delegates were coldly  received.
