London, Mny 15.���������Addressing his  constituents nt Birmingham tonight,  coloni.il secretary t.'li.enihei lain iimde  nn important speech, which seems lo  foreshadow the direct raising of the  question of free trncle versus protection  at the next general election.  The colonial *,ecielury proceeded  stiongly to urge the necessity, in  ordei to pics,eive the gient empire,  thnt the ti.ielc of lhe colonies s-hrmld  he secured. Cui.ul.i hud ottered  exception,el rid vantages, he said, which  Gient Biilniii did not date accept,  heciiuse of the narrow interpretation  of the doctrine ol free trade, the policy  of dictation nnd the ititurlerence by  foreign puivets.  The .peiiker snid he believed that an  entirely wrong interpretation had been  pUced upon lhe doctrine of fiee trade,  lint thtt the country ought not to be  bound hy this and it should not  hesitate to resort to letalintion, il  nec-essaiy, wherever the interests  between the colonic, and the home  country weie tbietitened.  He pointed out thnt Bright had  niipioved of a preferential treaty wilh  France, and snid: "There nre two  alternatives hefoie you. First���������To  maintain the free trade policy in all  its sieverity, although itis repudiated  by every other nation and your  colonies. Second���������To insist that wc  he not bound by any piirxly technical  definition of lice trade. While we  seek the one chief object, the free  interchange of couimeice between  ourselves and all the nations of the  world, we. will nevertheless recover  our freedom, resume lhe power of  negotiations, mid if necessary of  retaliation."  In conclusion the colonial secretary  said- it-was an "issue gmver in its  consequences than mere local disputes.  A, luistake.in legislation could be  .orrectsd, he said, but a mistake in the  imperial,policy wiis irretrievable. _-. v  .

There he told him'he  was a detective and forced him across  the track where the lobbery took  place. Complainant's pocket book  was rifled and its contents, except tha  mousy, scattered over the road. The  papers were of much importance and  were found by a representative of the  Herald, (who was on the rspot  immediately after the assault) early  next morning. As they had no  hearing on the case they were returned  to Mr. Stephenson after inspection by  the police.

MYSTERIOUS  DISAPPEARANCE  John Brennan Walks out .of  the Central Hotel two Weeks  ago and has not Been Seen  Since.  The friends of Mr. John Brennan;  the well known miner and prospector,  are much concerned at his mysterious  disappearance. He is one of the best  known prospectors of the Lardeau  country having" been exploring that  district for a number of years,  particularly what is now known as  Fish river camp. Some time- ago in  association with Cory Menhenick and  J. J. Foli-y of Arrowhead, he disposed  of his interests in two claims, believed  to be the Kossland and Balfour, part  of the well known Eva group, to the  Imperial Development Syndicate, and,  it is stated receiv-d two out of three  payments on the purchase price.  Ahout a month ago he came to Ihis  city and registered at the Central  Hotel where ne remained until about  two weeks since.    '        ' .  About the sixth, instant, without  , any warning to hi" friends or the  hotel proprietor he suddenly disappeared and has not heen seen or  heard or since. Tho only possible  reason obtainable for his actions ia a  statement made to home people round  the hotel, abe-iit a day or two boforo.  that he Intended   to drown  himself.  This remark waa not taken seriously  by those who heard it,'as Mr. Brennan appeared to be in fcjood spirits and  was, it ia believed, in possession of  ample funds to meet all liabilities. He  is not known to have had trouble of  any description. His continued  absence has caused numerous enquiries  to be made by the Chief of Police and  others at Arrowhead, Wigwam and  other places where he was Known, but  no information as to his wbereal o its  has been elicited. His friends there  fore feel that he may have carried ort  his threat to drown himself, although  no evidence of such a character baa  been found.  It is possible that there may be  another solution of the mystery,  however, as Mr. Brennan has been  somewhat erratic in his movemen s  on previous occasions. A year or s>  ago he left Arrowhead without notice  and caused considerable worry to his  friends until was located here. At  that time he left at midnight and was  supposed to huve gone to bed until a  rumour was circulated that he was  seen the next morning at Wigw-un.  wh<ch caused an investigation to be  made when it was found he was in  Revelstoke. In this connection it may  be said that Mr. Brennan was well  known to many of the trainmen and it  is almost certain that he did not leave  the city by any of the trains as no one  remembers seeing him in the vicinity  of the depot. Unless he is soon located  his friends will be forced to accept the  conclusion that he carried out his  threat of self destruction.  ���������Our new departments are showing  new silver ware, cutlery, fiat waie,  pocket knives, razors, etc. C. B.  Hume & Co.  In" this connection it is interesting  to note that, on June 9th, 1886, in an  addiess to the Congress of Chambers  of Commerce of tha Etiipir������,"he said  in part:  "We have, therefore, if we are -to  make any progress at all, lo seek a  third course, in- which the separate  interests of the parts shall he subordinated to the good of the whole.  "I admit that, if I understand it  correctly, I Hnd the germs o*f such n  proposal in the resolvtion which is to  lie submitted to you on behalf of the  Toronto Board of Trade. What is that  resolution? Again I say that I hope I  am correctly explaining it. That  resolution I understand to he one for  the creation of a. British Zulleverein or  Customs Union, and would establish al  once practically free trade throughout  llie_British Empire, but would leave  "the separate contacting parties free  to make their own arrangements with  regard to duties on foreign goods,  except that this is an essential condition of the proposal���������that Great  Britain should consent to place a  moderate duty upon certain articles  which are of large production in the  Colonies. These articles would comprise corn, meat, wool and sugar, nnd  perhaps other articles of enormous  consumption in this country, which  aie at present largely produced in the*  Colonies and wholly produced by  British labour. I do not doubt if it  were adopted it would be the strongest  bond of union between the British  race throughout the world."  Then, alter- mentioning certain  details that would have to be arranged,  he concluded :  "I otily want to impress on you my  personal convict inn that it a proposal of  this kind came to us from the colonies,  backed by any considerable support  on their part, it would not be met  with a blank refusal by the people of  this country."  Suicide at Beaver.  A. W. Smith, a young Englishman  well known in Vancouver, committed  suicide on Friday last by jumping into  lhe falls on the Beaver river, near  Beavermcuth. - The deceased had only  just arrived from the coast and had  heeu engaged to work' on the track  between I.iggan and Donald. lie was  a man of prepossessing -appearance,  well educated and had heen doing  some special correspondence for  English'newspapers. -"Hesei ved in the  Boer war for a considerable period  and like nvmy a returning volunteer  came back a^very sick man. Funds  becoming low he- wns compelled to  turn his hand to. the, first work  obtainable, and his suicide is supposed  to have been caused by -despondency  through ill health, a 'fallen position  and financial embarrasment.  PARLIAMENT  2WgF|iiS������AAL  H _H'������*  . ���������___        V  -Police  Court  Things have been rather lively in  police circles this week, all cases but  one, however, being of a minor nature.  On Tuesday evening before Messrs.  R. Gordon and W. E McLaughlin,  J's. P., five drunks were fined $5 and  costs or three days, and Kid Rogers  was committed for trial on two  charges of robbery with violence as  outlined below. A cross assault case  between James.

On Wednesday morning Mr. McLaughlin disposed of two cases, one  against Angus McDonald for vagrancy,  accused of entering the gaol yard and  communicating with prrsotrers, fined  $10 or fifteen days, and Tip O'Neill,  ope of the D. and D*s fined the night  before was again   convicted   for the  OpenedYesterday���������Stdck'Panic  in.

Ottawa, May- 21.���������(Special)���������The  last stage in the Gamey investigation  opens today when Counsel for prosecution will commence their closing  arguments.  Our Ottawa Letter.  [special correspondence.]  Ottawa, May 17.���������Sir Wilfred  Laurier stated that there was no truth  in the statement that part of the  Public Works'Department patronage  would lie handed over to Marine and  Fisheries Department. A motion by  Hon. Wm. Patterson provides for  many important changes in the  customs laws.  The preamble to thc Grand Trunk  Pacific Bill has passed the Railway  Committee, coinitting thc Government to thc principle. Owing to tlio  opposition's activity Sir Wilfrid  Laurier has announced that nothing  further will be done regarding the  Treadgold conce.ssiorr in the Yukon  until after full investigation.  In the Gamey investigation a lot / of  evidence has been put in convicting  Hon. J. R. Stratton of misstatements  under oath.  "Victoria, May 21���������(Special to the  Hkrald)���������In commotion with the  investigation of land grants to lhe  Columbia and Western Railway now  proceeding at Victoria it is the intention af the C. P. R. to apply to the  Dominion authorities at Ottawa for  disallowance of the Repudiation Act of  1003.  Victoria, B. C. May 20���������(Special)���������  Only two witnesses of import.tnceweie  examined last week before the special  committee. Hon. D. M. Eberts and Sir  Thomas Shaughnessy. Mr. Eberts'  testimony hud several sensational  features,' notably the statement Ihat  all along he had believed theC.and W.  were entitled to the lands granted hy  the Older in Council now "rescinded by  Bill No. 10 recently assented to. In  very many matters he flatly contradicted the Chief Commissioner, notably  regarding lhe alleged telegram from  W. J. Tayloi from Montreal originally  suggesting the deal. He had always  thought Mr. Wells' conduct in bringing back the deeds fiom Monor-eal was  a gross breach of faith,us he considered  their preparation, signature and  sealing constituted delivery to the  company. This was also his Deputy's  opinion. He challenged the statement  that Diinsmuir had insisted on the  extension of the road from Midway to  Spences Bridge heing a condition  precedent to delivery of the grants,  and generally supported the accounts  of the transaction given by G. McL  Brown.  SirThos.Shaughnessy'sexamination,  which was commenced yesterday  afternoon and is not yet concluded,  was even more strong than had been  indicated' by press despatches. In  addition to his own testimony he  produced important documentary  evidence, Mr. G. McL. Brown's report  to him of the executive meeting of  March 24th, 1002, when the-Big row  was 'on between that gentleman and  the government. ��������� It is a long detailed  statement ot the. conversations'  characteristic* expressions., of, the* ministers heing set out-in-fulK.-,,^^**���������������*_'-.'  ��������� If-this report is correct tlie, ministers  gave politicafexpediericy, as their sole]  reason for- 'cancelling^.* the (- Crown  grants arid Mr. Brown then stated  that he fully agreed with Sir Thos.  Shaughnessy's telegram 'that.' 'the  Government were doing things which  in private life were dishonourable. All  the members of the cabinet were present at the meeting. The report also  stated that during private conversations in the Driarcl Mr. Wells did not  deny the bad faith but said "Well, we  are up against it and had to.".  Sir Thos. Shaugnessy swore, also,  that the only ground given for  witholding the original grants when  Mr. Wells saw him ni Montreal was  political expediency and also that the  Company's solicitor had advised him  that the sealing of the grants was  delivery, actual handing over not being required. He had trusted Mr.  Wells with the Crown grants as he  had explicitly promised to' hand them  over as soon as the 'cabinet vacancy  was filled, in any event, not later than  a month. Mr. Wells asked to retain  them as a great compliment. He  fully concurred in the statement that  the whole recession was dishonourable  and thought - thc government hod  been guilty of the grossest bad faith.  It is expected that his cross examination tomorrow will envolve further  further sensational evidence, ns the  question of tangible handing* over  .will.be-takenjup. : -_^  JOLY   suspicious  Victoria, May 20.���������(Special correspondence.)���������Tho House has been  further adjourned until Tuesday next  as the C- & W. Committee cannot  finish their work before that time.  The Lieutenant-Governor has returned several Orders in Council,  recommended by the Government,  unsigned. This is taken as an in  dication that he is losing confidence  in the nrcsont ministry.  The Methodist Conference has been  in session here all week, and will  probably conclude its work in a couple  of days. An important resolution  has been introduced dealing with  economic questions, particularly disputes lietween capital and labour.  ourne  B  Me.MJ.t1  ros.  *.t  e  Boiled Linseed Oil  3  2  Raw Linseed Oil  e  a)  Neatsfoot Oil  e  X  __  Turpentine  3  >������  White Lead  "O  o  "I  Yellow Ochre  3  sr  ���������  *.t  Mackenzie  Avenue .  .  1 BOURNE BROS.  _*_% _ __���������_ _���������_-���������_ JT* JT* __P_ (-Ti JT* JT* _-K JT* JT* _ ___��������� ���������*-% JT* JT* t&* JT* JT* JT* *9* -T- _���������**_._ JTm JTm.

Victoria, B. C, May 10. (Special)  There is another big kick against the  Chief Commissioner who has placed  it reserve on practically all tbe available timber in the Island and Coast  Districts for a mysterious combination  known as the Island Power Company,  Limited, presumably for pulp  purposes. ' The area reserved composes some thousands of square miles  and loggers and millmen are up in  arms. Capt. Tatlow, M. P. P., was  advised that vested interests would be  protected, but in any event the proposed reserve will stop any extension  of lhe lumber industry for'at least two  years. A������ fur us it is known no  corporation of that name lias yet been  incorporated.

H.  Kstell nnd J**.ck Moore, of Golden,  B.C.. while on a prnspeclinf*; trip to  Surprise* rapids lust week, found a  laige number of articles which  prove that two men met their death  there some months ago. They found  a bundle of clothing, some wooden  traps, and, upon investigation, an  undecipherable Plioenix hospital  ticket, memorandum of lumber on an  envelope and an account of Morrin  Thompson & Co., of Phoenix wilh W.  flail & Co.   An  upturned  punt was  also discovered some 200 yards Turthcr  wn the river,  mlt appears lh.it last August two  en, whose names are at present  unknown, built a punt from lumber *  the same size as shown in the memorandum, and stat ted on a hunting trip"  to Surprise R.������pids. Nothing was  heard from them beyond the fait that  their little brown spaniel returned to  Beaver two days aftei thev left, wheie  it has since remained. Before going  to Beaver they purchased their  supplies from Charles Warren, of  Golden, lint he is unable to recall their  names. The vicinity of Surprise  Kapids is one of the most dangeronv  places in the Upper Columbia, the  stieam being extremely swift. Any  boat striking a snag would surely be  upset and, owing to the terrible  riirrent, its occupants drowned. There  is no doubt that the two men who '  were at Beaver have met their death  at this point and steps ha������-e been  taken to establish their identity by *  communication with officials at  Phoenix and Greenwood.  ���������See C B.

A Cat's Whiskers.  Nature Is an economical dame, and  never indulges in useless gifts. If she  giv-S an animal or plant an "appendage  of any kind we may be sure that It  verves some wise purpose.  Take a cat's whiskers, for Instance,  which may seem to you to be merely  ornamental.

If we imagine, therefore, a lion stealing througt  a covert of wood in an imperfect llghtc  we shall at once see t'he use of thest  long Hairs.

The cost of the manufacture. of a  pound of butter in the creamery la ai-  ino-st entirely governed by the quan-  !*���������������/ of milk 'handled by that creamery,,  and a decrease 'in teh cost, on account  of the magnitude of the business, ia  followed by an Increase of the price-  paid to farmers for butter fat. Ono  creamery in one of the dairy counties *  ln Iowa manufactured 400,000. pounds  of butter at a cost of 1 cent per pound;;  another 639,000 pounds of butter at a.  cost of 1.2 cents. In the smaller;  creameries the cost is reported at f roan"  5 to 7 cents per pound, the average-  being 3 cents, ln creameries handling  not more than 2,250,000 pounds * of;  milk, the average cost is 2.42 cents,  and when 1,000,000 pounds are added'  the cost falls to 2.2 cents, while la.  creaimeries receiving more than 3,500,-"  COO pounds of milk, the average cosf  Is 1.79 cents.  1 When a creamery Is established, every farmer who patronizes it, or in��������� '  (tends > to patronize it, should exert*  [himself to the utmost to Increase tho  supply of milk to tho creamery. In  eo doing he will cheapen tho cost of  manufacture, and thus advance tho*  pi*ice-of-hls-own=cream.���������The attitude���������  of a few leading farmers is frequently the life or death of a struggling  creamery. If these men throw thoir  active support to tbe creamery, they  can increase the supply of milk, and  thus enable the creameryman te.gllve-.  an increased price. This Increased  price renders it comparatively easy to  secure still further ��������� patronage, .and.  In time an Industry, profitable alike  to the farmer and tbe creamery man.  will -be built up; but if tbey withdraw their support and * diecou_ftg_  their neighbors, they decrease, tha  amount of milk, and decrease tha  pries, and frequently compel the cream.  cry to close or become a mere 'skim  station.���������Wallace's Farmer.  r.lqaid Mimure.

Try to grow Quality as well as fluao*  tlty.   v -   '"��������� -f->-"  Lady Minto as Skater.  lady Minto sets an admirable example  fry her article in January number of the  "Badminton Maga���������ine" on tlie subject of  skating, though it has long been the custom of Canadians to frown down descriptions of the outdoor sports which the  snow and ice give to Canada during the  winter ninths.  The editor of the magazine rightly acclaims Lady Minto aa "m-i-ster" of tho  art of skating. Years ago in London  society she established a repute in this  respect. Kow she iiiids' h--itelf in Canada, and she realizes tliat a'tl'ougli the  skating rinks of tire West tnd are better than nothing, it is to such a. land as  Canada, with it- open-air skirting, that  the skater must go for true enjoyment.  For weeks togetlrer iu (.'-inuda clear,  frosty weather prevails, and tlie skater  need feel no anxiety le-t nrr untimely  thaw should conic and mar his pleasure.  Kotliing, as Lady JlintJ says, can surpass tire beauty of u. l_ ���������ii.'jl Canadian  winter's day.  "The tall, dark fir tree? stand up  grandly aguiii*jt the inti*:is.* blue of tha  feky, the .->uu turns tlie -Siowy landscape  into myriads of sparkling diiinoiids, and  the clear, still atmosphere is almost awe-  inspiring, so pure und spotless does Nature seem.

Imagine the same, but instead  of Iflie brilliant rays of the sun, the silvery light of the "moon tlnowing dark,  mysterious shadows on-all around as the  skaters, each holding a blazing torch,  dash to and fro over the glassy surface,  sending a weird, fantastic glow as they  flit through the dim, uncertain light.  .With these surroundings, who can help  being an enthusiast?"  In this matter of skating Government  House leads the way; it possesses two  open-air rinks. No Canadian city is con*  eidercd complete without a covered rink  and even u mushroom town of three  years' growth, such as Rossland, in British Columbia, can boast of a splendid  building where many may seek relaxa*  tion and-eN cise during the inevitable  trials and excitement of a miner's exist*  ence. For another word picture we quot-i  the following:  "Sometimes at the beginning of tin  winter, before the srrow has covered tin  earth with pall of spotless white, a so  rere frost turns these mighty Camidiai  xivers and lakes into silent fields of crys  ital ice; then the skaters can'enjoy tin  supreme pleasure of gliding for iniles oi  ita clear surface, each heud of the rivei  (unfolding fresh scenes on which to feas*  "their.eyes, and as evening approaches tin  flow of the setting sun illuminates tin  '���������whole landscape with a soft, rosy hue  and the crimson ball of fire sinks bchini  ���������the pale horizon, leaving tlie vast, white  expanse in soft, gray twilight. A mon  .enchanting spectacle is scarcely conceiv  able.*'  When a wind springs up it is possibh  to sail before it at the rate of 30 mile:  ���������an hour. There is also, of course, hockej  , on the ice, and we can believe Lady Min  to when "she says that "it is a beautifu  * eight to see what absolute mastery tin  flayers have over the blade3, the light  ning speed with which they stop, turn  jump, or resume their course, perfonnin;  feats of skill and endurance with sucl  easy assurance tliat tlie spectator canno*  fail to follow each movement of tin  game .with admiration and interest.'  And no wonder tlie Canadian manages ti  reach this remarkable proficiency, foi  "the Canadian hoy can skate as soon a*  - he can walk; it matters nothing to hin  if he skates on ice or snow on the frozei  sidewalk or road; it becomes-second na  ture; his balance is perfect and his con  fidence complete." Some excellent plro  tographs illustrate the article, and ii  them Lady Minto herself figures with al  her accustomed grace and proficiency.  Anecdotal.  Spinsterbood.  Discussing old maids irr the "Centurj  Magazine," Lillian Hamilton French  wonders why it is that history and  tradition have done so little for  the" spinster except lo make hei  absurd. "Why," she asks, "has lit*  erature never enshrined her, I ask myself often���������set her apart in u corner bj  herself, as poets and philanthropists anc  great world-saviors are set, where she  can rest honored and reverenced, not ai  some special and iinsellish sister, nor yel  os a ccrtairr unmarried and devoted eou  ___in, but simply.and-witliout equivocation,  as an old maid, mi individual us necessary-* lo the world and its progress as  even the married ones? For think of all  tlie other people's children old maids  have loved und reared; of nil the homes  in which tliey have been benedictions;  of all the marriages they have helped to  bring about, and tire husbands and wives  their counsels have kept togetlrer. Think  if these tilings, ami then of how, when  no longer needed, tlrese old maids Jiavo  slipped away nnd been forgotten, like  the ashes of last year's fires."  Another of. their good traits, Miss  French points out, is that tliey nre such  good listeners, despite the fact that nobody pays any attention to their speech,  "Arid I "wonder," she adds, "considering  how many confidences men have poured  Into their ears, and how many other  things men have found to say about  them, that rrot a gentleman Iras yet been  found good and generous enough to pay  tribute to this surpassing excellence in  spinsters���������an excellence so dear to the  masculine mind. IIow many old maid  aunts, indeed, have nephews not beguiled? IIow many old-maid sisters  have not opened tlieir cars to the self-  praise of their unsuccessful brothers who  have missed n hearing at the bar, or in  the pulpit, or wherever thero was competition among men? Patient souls,  these old pinids, listening to each of us  ns a mother only listens to her own, and  mho hnve liitened so long that at last  they have Uie air of never expecting anyone lo pay attention to them. They  rcnture into speech on their own no-  eount, as timid mice into parlors, ready  on the. instant to whisk about and seek  cover again. These, though, are the old  maids for whom corners are never lacking, so eager arc tlio very least among  men to fissure themselves of a hearing  tomowherc."  One of the keenest of journalists audi  wits, Morifcz Gottleib Saphir, had the.'  better of the irate stranger against whom  JDb ran by accident at the corner of a.  street in Munich. "Beast," cried tho  offended person, without waiting for an  apology. "Thank you," said the journal-,  ist, "and mine is Saphir."  A lady was distributing tracts to the  patients in a certain military hospital,  when she was greatly shocked to hear  a soldier laughing at lier. She turned  around indignantly to reprove him, when  he said: "Why, look here, madam, you  have given mc a tract on the sin of dancing, when I've both legs shot oil'."  Tennyson invited Henry Hallnin to be  godfather to liis first boy. As t.hey were  walking up the churchyard the historian  enquired of Tennyson, "Whut name do  you mean to give" him?" "We thought  of calling him llallam," said the poet.  "Oh, had you not better call him Alfred?" modestly suggested llallain.  "Aye," replied the naive bard, "hut what  if lie should turn out' a fool!"  On one occasion, in Manchester, during thc performance of ".Macbeth," Sir  Ilenry living came to the line where he  has to suv to one of the nuuderers,  "There's blood rrpon thy fucel" The  grout tragedian stared so hard at the  uctor wiio was playing tlie "murderer"  tliat that worthy ijuite forgot lie was  acting upon t'hc board--*. "Great Scotl Is  there?" he replied, in alarm, and rushed  off the stage.  On one occasion the Pope wrote a message to be printed in a Now York newspaper, and copies were shown in advance  to prominent men hy the newspaper,  with a request for comment to bo printed  at thc same time with the document. To  tho request made of liim, the late Thomas B. lieed replied: "The overpowering  unimportance of this makes mo speechless.    I have nothing to say."  One of the most beautiful stories in all  biographical literature is tliat told of  Wendoll Phillips, the great orator. He  ���������was passionately devoted to his invalid  wife, and one day, after he had lectured,  his friends urged him not to return to  Boston that night. "Tlie last train has  left," they said, "and you will bo obliged  to take a carriage, lt will mean twelve  miles of cold riding through the sleet."  "Ah, yes," he replied, "but at tiho end of  them I shall' find Annie Phillips."  The other day a well-known actor was  showing a visitor to New York through  the Players' Club, where there is a collection ef old ale mugs used by distinguished persons. "Here," said tho Thespian who was doing the honors, "we  ���������have Edwin Booth's mug; and here is  Joseph Jefferson's mug; this is .Barrett's  imug; and here Henry Leslie's mug; hero  we have Mr. Kendal's ���������iu������- "   "Thank  heaven,"  mberrapted   the viaiter,  "that  you haven't Mrs. Kendal's musi"  Senator Hoar, at bhe Now England  dinner that was held reoently in Jt-hila-  .delphia, balked ahout New England hospitality. "It i������ better now than it used  to be," he said, "but ifc wiM still stand  improvement here and there.

I said: 'John, this turkey1 will  make a fine ' hash te-merrew.' ��������� 'Yes,  George, it will,'' the farmer, answered,'  'provided tJrat you leave off new'.'"  - - One of the difficulties ef roraities-^one  of the things that nccetmt tor the" ten-  ' dency; te selfi-hncss which has been considered a weakness of the royal easte���������is  that they so Bcldom hear the truth. For  instance, when Louis 'X_V. was once  playing at-backgammon, a. favorite game  with him, a dispute arose ne'to n'doubt-  .ful throw of the monarch.,Tlio courtiers,  appealed to by the King, snid nothing���������  not daring ,to give the verdict against  tihe King, not caring to tell too palpable  a lie. The-Comte de Grammont entered  at this awkward moment, and the King  Risked him to decide the matter. The  ���������witty courtier replied \without a mo-  jment's hesitation: "Your Majesty is in  i bhe wrong." "How," said . Louis, "can  you decide Ibofore you know the* question?" "Because," replied the count,  "had there been any doubt, all these gentlemen would have given it in favor of  your Majesty."  As a junior .counsel, Sir. Justice Hawkins was once practising before Lord  Campbell. In addressing the jury, he referred to a brougham, and pronounced  the word with two syllables���������bro'am.  "Excuse mc," said his lordship, blandly,  "but I think that instead of saying  'brough-am' you were to say "broom,*  you would be ���������' *ore intelligible to the  jury, and, mc ver, you would save a  syllable." "' ,m much obliged to your  lordship," r_ietly replied Mr. Hawkins,  and proi.r;'.(lcd to bring his address to a.  close. ?reserrtly tire judge, in summing  up, made use of the word "omnibus." In-  fetntitly-up- rose-Mr.���������Hawkins���������and -ex--  ctairucd: "Pardon me, m'lud, but I would  take tlie liberty of suggesting that instead of saying 'omnibus' yorrr lordship  would say "bus,' and you would then  be more intelligible to tire jury, and besides you would save two syllables."  It is related that while in Xew York,  Professor Lorenz one evening at dinner  was seated next to a clergyman, who  was describing to thc great Austrian how-  deplorable were moral conditions on the  East Side. "Why, professor," snid the  minister, "I 'heard an eleven-year-old girl  over there orre day step up to a boy of  about her own ago, nnd say, 'I'll lick hell  out of you.' ". Dr. Lorenz looked puzzled,  for he is not fnmi_.ii- with American  slang. "Lick," ho said; "was ist dos  'lick?'" "Why, 'lick,'" said the clergyman!, a little puzzled in return, "'lick'  is to kick*out of, to stamp out from, to  eradicate." "Oh," said the professor,  "and 'hell.' I don't know 'hell.' " "Well,  'hell' stands for all wickedness, everything that is wicked." "Yes, I see,"  slowly responded Dr. Lorenz; "the leetie  girl said to the leetie boy she would  stamp out, eradicate everything wicked  from him. But why should that he so  bod?"  Among the new uses to which paper is  being put are artificial teeth and "uppers" for boots and shoes. The old saying, "There is nothing like leather," may  some time be changed to "There's nothing like paper." At this very moment a  substantial business firm in Boston is  considering a proposition to take up the  work of manufacturing paper hats. By  and by a high hat, dress suit and shoes  rivaling patent leathers, all made of paper, may be considered quite the correct  thing. -The paper age may astonish the  world to a greater degree than any that  have preceded it.  In the center of a piece of Canadian birch timber, which recently arrived at High Wycombe, Eng., was  found a young bircli tree, 2 1-2 inches in  diameter. It had "escaped the saw, although the piece of wood was only throe  inches in thickness. Tlie young bircli  had enjoyed an independent growth, and  it is supposed that years ago a'seed fell  into; a hollow part of the old tree aird  developed into a sapling, forcing its way  up through the trunk of its parorit. The  hollow was completely filled for a distance of several yards. This curious  freak of nature is to be preserved.  So ninny members of the staff of tho  Mafeking "Mail" were lccently incapacitated at one time that the editors felt  obliged to (ipologize for the paucity of  news in a certain issue. "We are sorry,"  thoy said, "but we could not help it.  Ono of the stall had rheumatics and pnr-  tial paralysis of the shoulder, another  has had a few days' colic, and yet another could not come to work because liis  child was dangerously ill. One left without notice and paid two pounds for an  interview with the resident magistrate  in consequence, and another seized the  opportunity to break into tcctotalism,  while more terrible still, one of our best  went and got married."  Tire Chinese representative at Washington, in a recent despatch to Pckin,  stated that some' of the Chinese students in the United States had begun to  cut oil tlieir queues and to assume foreign  clothes in lieu of the flowing garb of the  Celestial Empire, ns a matter of convenience while residing in "the great Republic. His Excellency was instructed  that the queue was the badge of their  nationality, and its abolition an infringement of the laws of the Manchu dynasty. Aa the result, the students have  been ordered to resume the wearing of  the queue, on pain of being sent back to  China to be punished.  SHUBENACADIE'S FAMOUS CURE  STORY OF ALICE M.

Asked to'begin -at the*beginning, and tell  the complete story of the case,,   she.  complied willingly, for she felt, she  said, that all the world should know  how her daughter escaped from the  supposedly fatal Bright's Disease, and  that she owed her escape to Dodd's  Kidney Pills, and to no other agency.  THE MOTHER'S STORY.  "Alice," Mrs. Parker began, "was  always a delicate child from her  birth. When she was twelve years  old she was not any larger than an  ordinary child would be at eight years  old. But like many delicate children, Alice pulled along as delicate  children will, till July, 1!)00. She  was then thirteen years old. On July  7th she was taken seriously ill. lier  eyelids swelled till she could hardly  see, her legs swelled from her ankles  to her kuues. I took her to a doctor,  and he said she had Bright's Disease, and could not live long. Thc  doctor tended her for about six  weeks, but as she grew worse, I stopped the doctor and tried different  kinds of patent medicines. But ail  the time she just got worse and  worse. Her sufferings had hy this j  time become' so great tliat I again  turned to thc doctors. This time I p  tried another otic. He had no hesita- j  tion in pronouncing her disease,  Bright's Disease of the worst kind.      |  AI.ICi: MAUD IWKKCit  Whone i-miar*, ,l,lu r.enwn   from I'ri^hl**, D. _a.-c  li.t, *l*c nil Ciui-tlt t-tlkin,.-.  the disease had been thoroughly cleared out of the sjitcni. There could  only he one result. Thc Blight's Disease gradually regained its hold oa  its victim. "And," s.iid Mrs. Parker, continuing, "to our great surprise, in January,  11)02,  the swelling  I came back.  , "This time, though, I knew what  to do.  I sent at once for six   boxes  I of Dodd's Kidney Pills. She began  at once to take them, and gradually  thc dread monster fell hack before the  BELT MEASURED 48 INCHES. I (Treat remedy.

She showed  lhem to me, and I grasped at this  last chance to help her, as a drowning man grasps at a straw.  HOW THE CURE BEGAN.  "She" began taking Dodd's Kidney  Pills on November 25th, and before  she had finished the first box I "could  see a change for the better. By December 19th there was a marked improvement in her condition, but there  was. a large gathering across the  small of her back and ready to lance.  When it was opened it emitted a  quart of matter, besides blood and  water. Again we feared for her life,  and again the doctor warned me that  she might die at.any moment.v But  my faith in'Dodd's Kidney Pills had  grown, and all through that long  winter she took them regularly, and  under the treatment continued to gain  in sttength ^till' by. -April her back  was well, and the 'swelling had all  left her, though her urine when tested was milkey and at times it would  curdle.    '- ' ' f     '     . *  ."Still she was 'vastly improved,  and I was greatly encouraged, and  continued to give her the Pills till  November, when she appeared to he  perfectly..well, and .was growing faster than she had done in years."  ' A NEARLY FATAL MISTAKE.  At this point Mrs. Parker nearly  made a fatal mistake. She stopped  the use of Dodd's Kidney. Pills before  The doctors told me my daughter  could not live._ When they knew ��������� I  was giving her Dodd's Kidney Pills,  they said that if they cured her ii  would be one of the greatest miracles  in the world, for the like had never  been in this province or anywhere  else. And Dodd's Kidney Pills did  cure her. I gave her 70 boxes of,them  altogether, hut they gave her life in  return, and I feel that I cannot say  enough for Dodd's Kidney Pills."  THE SUMMING UP.  This is the story of the famous  Bright's Disease cure, as told by the  mother of the sufferer herself. There  can be no doubt as to 'the truth ef  the story. Scores of people corroborate it. The case was thoroughly diagnosed by skilled physicians, who unhesitatingly _ pronounced Jt Bright's  Disease.   " "->   '  Neither can there be any doubt aa  to what caused the cure. It was  Dodd's Kidney Pills. For", after the  doctors had given the patient up for  lost, Dodd's Kidney Pills were ths  only medicine used. The fact remains  that Dodd's Kidney Pills have cured  Bright's Disease. And If Dodd's Kidney Pills can and do cure Bright's  Disease, which is thc worst stage of.  Kidney-Disease, liow sure must it be  that they are a sovereign remedy for  those earlier stage-, of Kidney Disease from which thousands of the  Canadian people arc suffering?

Some of  ���������them have an ancierrt" ring, hut there is  one that is perhaps not generally known.  A doctor was attending a dangerous case  where a Scotch butler was engaged. On  ioalling in the forenoon he said to Don-  :B-d: "I hopo your master's temperature  '.is much lower to-day than it was laat  night." "I'm no' sae very sure aboot  that," replied the butler, "for ho dee'd  'this morning."

And   he  saw  a "living  1 picture"  of  Sir Hiram  firing a  Maxim  [gun in the presence of the Shah of Per-  |sia.   That was conclusive. I  .

And the growth of Imperial loyalty  has been in no  small   measure due to  the life and actions   of Victoria, for of  all the leaders of the British democracy  she was unquestionably the  greatest.  She never feared her people, she nevei  hesit.-ited to  part  with private prejudice*, on tlieir behalf, and .'through all  the  changes of more than sixty years  preserved lhe monarchy of  Britain to  be a source bf strength and inspiration  to the empire.   Thus   she  achieved  a  work which   no publicist   could   have  devised and no statesman have forseen.  '���������3h_ wrought her people lasting good."

THE DIAMOND DRILL.  -  This instrument lias, since its  invention.been a most valuable adjunct  to scientific mining, and, as its use is  becoming more extended, many rich  ore bodies have been discovered where  their existence was little suspected.  The latest development. of this  character we have noticed in British  Columbia is the location of a valuable  body of ore some three hundred feet  below the piesent workings of the  Le Roi.  The use of the diamond drill is  almost* self evident. Suppose surface  indications show what appears to be a  mineral body of economic value, its  permanence can be easily determined  by prospecting holes sunk, at a  comparatively small expense, by the  instrument in question. In the case  of a fault occurring on a vein in  underground workings the ore can be  relocated by the diamond drill without  the inevitable dead work seeking it,  even under the most competent  niaiiagement, by crosscuts or sinking.  Access to the use of such instruments  would be of great benefit to Kootenay  prospectors. If they were able to lay  before capitalists not only assays  showing good surface indications but,  in addition, drill cores showing character of rock hundreds of feet below  the surface, it is evident thu speculative feature or mining would lie  greatly reduced. And not only this,  the man with the pick and drill would  receive a much higher figure for his  prospect, or for an interest in it on a  development basis.  Such being tbe case, the question  naturally arises, should not the  Government assist irr the best way  possible the prospecting of our mineral  lands? Yes, must certainly he tlie  answer. Ami irr what way could **uch  assistance lie better giv-������n than by  providing, under proper safeguards,  that prospectors could have access to  diamond drills for pros pec Ling work  on their mineral claims. Tliis subject  is not n. new one but seems recently to  have dropped out of sight.  Our reason for taking up the matter  'is very easily explained. We think it  would be -not only a boon to  prospectors, bub also a good business  proposition, for the Government to  purchase a number of the smaller class  nf diamond drills, say, one or two for  each mining division where prospecting for lode mines is actively engaged  in. Such instruments could be placed  in the cave of the Mining Recorder and  loaned at a small figure to reliable men  for exploitation purposes, proper  conditions being ur-ide for return in  good order. If objection were made  to this method of assisting prospectors,  we have no hesitation in saying that  if the Government had a number of  diamond drills, and experienced men.  engaged to run them, the Department  of Mines would be deluged by applications for such service from men ready  and willing to pay the necessary  expense. We commend tire foregoing  suggestions to thecareful consideration  of the Government.  THE GRAND TRUNK  PACIFIC BILL,  It is admitted on all hands that  another transcontinental road would  lie of advantage to tbe Dominion, and  also that to secure its construction 11  reasonable subsidy might lie given  from the public funds. As such a  proposition, thc Grand Trunk Pacific  Bill now before the Federal Parliament should he criticised in no carping  spirit; hut experience wilh other  railway measures has shown thai*  every detail of a scheme of this kind  should be carefully scrutinized. The  measure affects this Province .is no  Bill of recent years could have done.  If thc present proposals are carried  out it will mean for British Columbia  at some time two other transpro-  vincial railways, one entering via*  Yellowlicad Pass and terminating at  Bute Inlet, and the other entering  through the Peace Kiver Pass and  ending at Fort Simpson. Tlie two  branches in this Province are foreshadowed by the recent declaration  of Sir Rivers Wilson that from Edmonton both the routes indicated  would be utilized under the proposed  charter.  Beyond a forecast hy Mr. Tarte in  LaPatrie, we are unacquainted with  what aid is promised.   His statement,  however, was that there would   be   a  cash subsidy of $fi000 per luile'foi* 3000  miles,   or   $15,000,000   in   all.   witli a  further   Dominion   guarantee    of interest at a. snllicient   rate   to   secure  flotation upon   a  capital   of  .<t>30,000,-  000.   As no present Minister lias made  any   statement   as   to   the proposed  subsidy we will not, at present,   make  any reference   to   the   terms  beyond  slating   that   if   the   amounts   given  above are even approximately correct  only very limited Provincialassistiince  should be given, if any at all.  ��������� Btrt the construction of railways in  the north is   au   urgent necessity for  British   Columbia,   and   it   is  to this  phase of the matter we wish to direct  attention.    When the Bill in question  was before the   Railway   Committee  311'. C. .1. Hayes, General Manager of  tire Grand Trunk Railway, stated that  construction   would   be    commenced  from Winnipeg and continued east as  that section of the country  was  more  irr need of  immediate   transportation  facilities ��������� than   any   other.       Such a  statement was not in accordance with  I the facts aud yet we do   not   find the  representatives from British Columbia  calling   attention   to   our   provincial  needs.      If the Grand Ti unk Pacific is  to be of material good to this Province  without our   waiting   ii   considerable  number of years,-provision   urust   lie  made   for     concurrent    construction  from the Pacific coast.   And in urging  the inclusion   of   a   clause  in the Bill  providing   this   Messrs.    Tenipleman,  Galliher.   McPherson.   Morrison   and  Riley���������who   have   tbe    ear    of    the  Government���������would have   only   lieen  doing their duty.     But no, when this  important matter was under discussion  tbey were conspicuous   by   tlieir   absence and  fet   the   committee   decide  practically   without   discussion,   that  _construct.ion_frc*im_\Vinnij*ieg_e.-LS_t_ _v*i__  the only   necessity   for   the   present,  British Columbia being left ont in  the  culd.    Tho Quebec and other  Atlantic  coast representatives   were   there   in  force to see about the eastern terminus  hut the Pacific members never opened  their   mouths.      On   one   memorable  occasion   Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier    telegraphed "Tlie views of Liberals in tbe  west shall prevail," and wc can hardly  blame him ^if he   considers   that   the  western members  silence  signified no  particular views on the subject.  This matter must he taken up by  the local House and other public  bodies in British Columbia. Let us  impress on tlie Dominion Government  that constructions of the Grand  Trunk Pacific must be begun in this  Province as soon as, if not sooner  than anywhere else, and, if our  representations are made with  sufficient force, wc believe the charter  will be hung up until such a necessary  provision is inserted.

WATCH REPAIRING A BP'-CIALTY. r?B>  NOTE AND COMMENT.  According lo Hon. Sydney Fisher,  who 1ms inst ictiunt'ii from Jupiin,  there in a large market open in I hut  country for Ciiiiailiiiu Hour, pulp,  lumber and rtiinitui*e. He forgot to  mention salmon which has been  steadily exported from the const for  sumo years.  If Hon. J. I. Turte's correspondence  to Ln, Patrie is relntlile the Dominion  Government will give l he Grand Trunk  Pacini: a bonus of $5,000 n mile lor  3000 miles, a total ol $15,000,000. There  will also he a government, gii'triintee  of interest on another $30,000,000,  steel industry as a mirage. If this  sort of thing goes on Andy will either  die rich or burn up his dough.  Simon Leiser, of Victoria, B. C,  made a suggestion to the Labour  Commission that the Dominion government take a hand in settling Dunsmuir- labour troubles. Whereat  Chief Justice Hunter, the President,  said they would have to know something moro about the west than they  do at present. Proof positive of a  deep seated feeling of injustice among  provincial liberals. If a sermon were  in order in this column a flue text  would he " Do good to them that  despiteful!)* use you."  Hon. W. C. Wells let hia colleagues  in tho cabinet, think, for a month after  liis return from Montreal, that the  deal had bevn consummated and the  Crown grants delivered to the C. and  W. Railway. Then he casually informed Prentice who casually told  Dunsmuir. Which proves that you  uuist use lorfg ropes to haul things  out of Wells.  SHAFTS AND STOPES  R. F. Tolmie's appointment as  deputy minister of mine's, was gazetted  last weak, which shows conclusively  tnat the Herald's contention as to  his previous tenure of office being  illegal was correct.  No one called the Mail's five dollar  bluff for a news item, consequently  "our esteemed" hnd no news:  A sheet called the Kootenay Mall.  Saw news for its news column* fail,  Though it offered a prize  Five dollars in size  For an item Ihat wasn't quite stale.  In .connection with the article in  the Herald last week regaiding the  Flathead river coal oil lands, just  ���������outh of the line these fields are being  exploited hy Montana capitalists.  Two holes have been bored nearly  1000 feet, and a third plant, with COOO  feet capacity, will start at once. In  Montana the wells are in the ground;  in-B. C, unfortunately, Wells is in  the cabinet.  That man Greenshields has bobbed up  again in the C. & W. investigation.  But he was too tough a proposition for  even the C. P. R. Now the question  arises-what had the .C. & W. to do  with the New- Westminster bridge?  That's what his  fees were charged to.  * "Very many of   the evils that afflict  society nre the result of- the pettiness  or the cupidity of little.men."���������Toron  to Globe. * Wells is a little man.  "'- Fire caused the destruction of about  $600,000worth"of property in Ottawa  last week. This is the second big fire  since the Liberals came into power.  The Musical Cycle has come and  gone but a letter from C. A. E. Harris  to the- New Westminster conductor  foreshadows another transcontinental  concert series next year. Are there  not enough music lovers.in Kootenay  who will practice separately but unite  on one place for a production in the  interior? All needy is energy and a  little self sacrifice.  Fish River  Contractors Bodine and Thompson  are progressing well with the intermediate tunnel on the Beatrice. From  all indications the ore body will be  struck shortly.  It is practically certain the ten  stamp mill on the Eva will be in  operation hy the beginning of next  month.' All preparations, including  right of way dam, etc., outside the  mill itself havo already been completed.  On tire Goldfinch at Goldfields  Manager Blackwell is rushing development with all speed. Large quantities  of $20 to $30 quartz are being blocked  out and when the mill starts running  steadily, about June oth, there will  be a large output of gold.  Many miners nre going in to work  the high grade free gold properties in  this camp. . Goldfields and Camborne  are growing i*apidly.  SLOCAN  Ore shipments to May 15th were  5S00 tons.  The Payne Company held.its meeting in Montreal the other day when  the manager submitted a most satisfactory report. He expects the new  mill to be running by 1st June, and  states that the present average of 300  tons of high grade concentrates per  month will be greatly augmented in  the near future.  Frank Pyman is progressing well  with his contract for the tunnel on  the Capella.  c* BOUNDARY  The Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  have now been connected by No 3  tunnel of the. Granby, workings.  It is reported that a six " inch vein  of telluride ore has been found in the  E plurihus unum mine, -Greenwood,  which runs $3140.00 to the ton.  ���������- The new' Superintendent of the  Mother Lode smelter at Greenwood,  is J. E. McAllister. He formerly  occupied a similar position nt Copper-  ville, Tenn. ' ���������   ' '  The Suowshoe is gradually extending development and employing more  men. About 1st June shipments to  the Sunset will be resumed.  ROSSLAND  The Le Roi has been conducting  diamond drill prospecting for ' some  time. The latest result is the location  of a remarkably rich body of ore some  300 feet below the present workings.  Dept. of Publicity.  Whenever  an   exhibition   like  th  World's   Fair,   or   Pan-American    is  mooted    theiv  first    department   to  receive attention  is   the   Department  of Publicity.     Its duty is to advertise  the attractions to he shown, the goods  to   be  sold   and   tho  why  and  the  wherefore generally of tho  fair.     In  the same way   overy   community   of  any   size    has    its    Department  of  Publicity   in   the  shape  of  the local  paper.

A novel experiment is being made  by the British admiralty, that of  ���������toring coal for naval purposes under  water. First thing we know some  high spots in the ocean beds will be  coral led as submarine colonies. As  Mark Twain said regarding the Em -  pire, "Blessed are the meek for they  khall inherit the earth."  Sydney, O.B., has thrown Carnegie's  gold brick in the old reprobate's face.  He characterised the Sydney iron and  extent' by the Northern immigrants  who have settled at Pinebiuff, N. C.,  the new winter health resort located  just six miles South of Southern Pines  the famous winter resort wher*  thousands of Northerners go each  winter. The peanuts grow on a little  plant that looks like it might be a  cross between the sweet potato and  tomato vine. The peanut, like the  tomato, has a- blossom on the vine,  from the blossom shoots downward a  needlelike branch that enters the  ground and from tlie tip end, soon  after it enters the soil, begins to form  a little soft oblong pod that finally  develops into the full grown peanut.  The vine spreads out on the ground  somewhat similar to a cucumber,  covering, however, a space much  smaller than the cucumber, only about  two feet in diameter. Tlie settlers at  Pinebiuff have sent up North specimen vines of the peanuts to their  friends, and they have been shown  around wilh much interest; and  recently there has been a demand for  the vine from the schools up North  so as to show an object lesson to the  children and many of the vines have  been furnished the schools by John  T. Patrick, Agent of the Seaboard Air  Line Railway, located at Pinebiuff.  A demand has been made on him by  the schools for cotton plants as they  grow and rice as well as peanuts, and  he has promptly responded to their  demand, in fact Mr. Patrick has added  many interesting specimens to the  schools and private collections North.

This was not, however, the whole sum  of the suffering of Astley D.mven on  that bit tor December dny." IVir iie had  aot only liiniseif to lliink of, hut he hud  to consider also the fnct lh.it he was in  ohfirge of n brand-new motor-ear, the  property of a confiding'friend, which had  Broken down in a hojieless manner when  he had uot a few miles out of Oxford,  ������nd which he felt hound to stand hy in  misfortune as it had stood hy him up to  then.  With much exertion, therefore, and  limping along in a very chastened mood,  Astley directed hia steps, motor nnd nil,  towards a riverside inn which he knew,  where he proposed to leave tho ear for  tile time, and to get rest and refresh*  aient for himself, before returning into  the town.  Never had he seen the place so deserted. Not so much ns a tramp did he  meet to give him a hand Qn his way.  Blowly, painfully, with laborious steps,  lie pushed the vehicle along, filled with  that deep sense of humiliation and  abasement of which the Englishman becomes conscious when, after forsaking  bis true friend the horse, and taking up  with the modern substitute, that substitute breaks down and, so to speak,  tfcunts him with his inconstancy.  When he had got so near the'inn that  _. shout would have brought someone  out to him, Astley paused a moment,  ������nd gave a look round him.  The anow wns beginning to drive down  at a faster rate; the wind was whirling  the flakes round before dropping them  In little feathery clumps wherever there  ..was. a nook or n hole to he filled. Already  a. cloudy rail hung between him and tho  river, which was running fust and look-  in-; black as it ran.  There was just one figure in sight, and  Astlcy watched it with the interest to  Which its lonely position entitled it. It  was that of a wo,nan, apparently a  ������������������light young girl, who, with her hat  pressed down tightly with one hand, and  Ber skirts blown round her like a shenth,  Was running like a hire with the wind,  ���������long the towing-palli and towards tho  hand-bridge which crossed the river, a  little below this point, past an old water-  ���������fain.  He was much too far off to see her  "lace, but something in the woman's walk  and  manner   made   Astley' look  again,  -and presently made him leave.his'motor-  tap, to hobble a few steps in the direction in which she had gone, to look at  her again.  And the more he looked, the more interested he became.  The    woman     reached    the    bridge,  stepped on it, stopped short, turned once,  turned   twice,  hesitated,   came   off   the  bridge again, and stood for a few moments looking down .;t the water.   Then  again she made a d.-*������h for the bridge,  crossed it, and disappeared in the veil of  mow.  Astley hnd by this time made up his  ���������mind  to follow her.    Something in  his  ���������wn  eireum-fanees  rt  that  time made  Bim take a speeinl interest, of a cynically bitter rather thai- a benevolent sort,  fa the doings of any woman oi-eccentric  tendency.   So he crossed the bridge, and  turned to the right, and saw the same  figure again, this time close to the racing  -water.  She did not see hi.i.   She did nothear  fcim.    The snow \v_-= driving,  the wind  ���������was roaring and'whistling in the leafies3  trees, and she  walked along the  bank  quickly, without a  look behind.  Then suddenly she stopped.    Whether  she was blinded by t: e snow, or whether she did it of her own free will she  never  told;  but  the next  moment she  was down the bank and in thc water.  Astley was  near enough  to  scramble  down  the bank after her, to snatch afc  her dress, to seize it. and to hold on,  wet-iJicpugh himself, until, somehow or  ,_ther,=^_ith___av.er_____w______tly_-J_j_c,_  they   both   found   th'tnselvcs,   dripping,  Brought faco to face with the knowledge that ho was behaving unconventionally, Astley grow serious again.  "Indeed I ilou't know." snid ho.  "There's nothing really laughable'about  tho affair for mc; i"or I've got wet  through;   niul  as  I'm    dcad-lnme,   and  haven't long sot ovor an attack of tv- * . ,  phoid, there's're.illv nothing about this j }onS S������t over an attack ol typhoid,  ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ���������  ���������    make me nicr- i *'������ 3 been wounded beside, so he s moro  the gill's arm kindly, as she seemed to  shrink into herself at these words. "I  know what young folks arej I've been  young myself, and I know it's very little they see of anything but each other."  The young girl moved restlessly under  the infliction of this speech, not knowing whether she hud better confess that  the man who was her fellow-sufferer was  a stranger to hor, or allow Mrs. Bonne's  curiosity to evaporate in ignoranco.  "Oh, it wasn't that, it was not at nTl  like that," sho said, with a little frown  and a restless movement.  "Oh well, never mind, I won't bother  you. You neither of you want to talk  about it, I sec." From these words tho  girl gathered that her unknown rescuer  had boon ns reticent aa herself. "I only  hope the poor gentleman will get over  it ns well as you seem to have done;  hut he's done nothing but, shiver ever  since."  "Really?" said thc girl, in n strangled  voice, rising instinctively as she uttered  tho word.  "Really and truly.   It seems he's not  und  adventure whicli ought to make me nicr  J*.-" . j  lhe woman staved al him, and a littlo !  sound, like a smothered sob, came to her j  lips.    Her eyes,  which  were black  and  lot-ked unnaturally huge in lier face now  that it, was blue-gray with eold, suddenly became moist.  "Lot ine help you up thc bank," said  she.  And it wns now her turn to do him a  service, for his injured limb was benumbed with thc cold, and she had 'hard  work in getting him up to the top of  tho hank, which was now wet and slippery.  Im much obliged to you," said he,  With his teeth chattering.  And he tried to walk, following her  as she hurried along irr the direction of  the bridge. A curious object she looked,  with her lank garments clinging to her,  and the water still pouring down all  over her. Ueforc she had got many  steps away she turned half round tu  look at her rescuer. He was hobbling  along with evident pain, and she hesitated, her conscience getting the better  of her shyness. In another moment she  had come back to him.  , "Won't you let me help you along?"  said she quickly, in a shamefaced way.  "Thanks. It's very good of you, but  you'd better make haste and get somewhere out of the snow, and 1 can't get  along fast enough: to���������to���������"  "I Can't leave you, after what you  did, until I've seen you out of it, too,"  murmured the girl in a low voice, still  in the same awkward and shy manner.  Suddenly it occurred to Astley to  think that it would ho better for the  girl, as weli as for him, for her to remain under his eye for the present. So  he said:  "Very well. Then, we'll.get to tho other side, to the inn there, and*���������"  "Oh, no," cried she in sudden horror.  But tho next moment she checked herself, and said, in a low voice: "Yes, yes,  to the inn.   Very well."  They had to go ; against the driving  wind now, and, at the slow rate of progression which was the best Astley was  capable of, they were so blue and stifi'  with the cold by the time they got across  the bridge, that it was with difiiculty  they ported their lips to exchange a few  melancholy w.rds.  "Now���������I'll���������leave���������you. You can ���������  get along from here," the girl said, as  she withdrew her stiliened arm from his  when they had reached the opposite  bank, and wore near the* little desolate-  looking inn.  "You'd better���������come in���������loo," rejoined Astley, with difiiculty forming the  words behind his chattering teeth.  "There'll be���������a fire���������Think of it!"  He was trying to rpoak with humorous joviality, though his half-frozen companion was scarcely aware of the fact, j  She shook her head, but feebly.   Astley I  tried again. :  "Conic���������you'd.���������better," said he. "You'll '���������  be half dead���������-by the time you get back j  ���������anywhere���������if���������if���������" |  ..Something in these words struck the ,  girl, and made her hesitate.  Half dead! Dead! That' was a solemn j  word, and it had a new meaning to her :  who knew what she had just escaped.)  She let herself be persuaded. When Ast-j  ley put a cold, still hand on her arm, a.i ;  if again asking for her support, she si- j  lently gave in, and accompanied him up -i*  the little path, trembling and**'wearing a i  very hang-dog expression. .*<  Before they reached the door it was !  thrown open" and the landlady, with a j  than ordinarily susceptible just now. Do  you want to see him?" she went on, moving towards the door, as if to lead tlie  way downstairs.  "No," snid tho girl sharply, as she  promptly resumed her seat by the fire.  Mrs. Bonne seemed rather surprised, if  not displeased. **  "He's silting all by himself in tho parlor downstairs," said she, while she began to wonder whether a serious quarrel was at tho bottom of this accident.  "Ho's sent into Oxford for a fly, to take  you 'both, and in the meantime I advised  him to keep ns warm as possible."  Again the girl stood up, and now it  was impossible to mistake tho expression  of her face for anything but one of serious concern.  "Not for both of us." she said quickly.  "He���������I���������"  Sho stopped. The landlady was eon-  firmei in her suspicion, and the expression of her fnee changed also. Intense  curiosity began to get the better of ev- |  ery other feeling in her breast, and the  girl, grateful as she felt for the kindness  she had received, was worried and distressed by her position, and a little inclined to resent Mrs. Bonne's evident  wish to know mora than anybody chose  to tell her.  "Oh well, of course, it's no business of  mine," said the landlady, after a pause  to allow her guest to unbosom herself if  she chose. "Of course I've no wish to  intrude, though,I've heen trusted with  a good many secrets in my time."  "There's no secret in the case," said the  girl, with unconscious irritation, turning to the window, and looking out at  the still fast falling snow. :"X slipped  and fell into the water, and���������and this  gentleman got me out, and unfortunately got wet through himself in doing so.  That's nil."  "I quite understand, nnd I won't trouble you again'till the fly comes," said  Mrs. Bonne, as she snatched up her.littlo  trajr and retreated to the door.  And ,before;her guest could detain her  to eKpress afresh her thanks for' tho  kind treatment s*he had received, Mrs.  Tienne hod shut herself out of the room,  and wag on her way downstairs.  The girl sprang up again, and once  .more stared out'in the gathering gloom.  The mow was falling faster than ever:  the wind swept clond3 of the feathery  ^-kc*" now to the risrht and now; to the'  left, and tho black line of the river was  powing dim.  "I must get away, I must get back!"  muttered the girl, peering out at tho  flat country along the Trver bank with a  dismal sense of the difficulties .that lay  before her. Then "she turned quickly,  and having by this time exchanged her  borrowed ".'garments' for her own, proceeded; to put on hor jacket and misshapen headgear which, much damaged  by the water, had to do duty for a hat.  With ones horrified glance in the little  looking-glass at the strange object sho  then appeared, she hurried across the  room, opened the door softly, and ran  downstaira.  The day was by. .this time fading fast;  the he_vy clouds and Uie falling snow all  contributed to the darkness and the  gloom. At the bottom of the narrow  staircase she came to a window half  blocked with snow, and to a door which  she knew was the back door of the  house.  Almost leaping to the ground in her  haste to get away, the girl had. her fingers on the handle when someone darted  out of an opposite door and, turning in  her  direction,  began   to   gtope  for the  A HOUSEHOLD ECONOMY.

Mi*. South Orange looked interested.  Mrs. Orange aa a flriJincler, and especially as, an ecnomizer*, was wliolly  new, and the prospect of having to  pay for her economics in some .unsuspected way was almost as exciting as  a roulette game. So he baid with careful  pronunciation:    '"Well?"  "Well," said Mrs. Soutn Orange,  drawing a long breath. "You know I  keep an account in town here." Mr.  Orange nodded and sighed to himself.  His wife went, on: "The other day  I heard from a little tailor in the city  ���������I mean Now York, ot course���������that  ho had had to pay ten cents lo get a  two-dollar check cashed that 1 had  sent him.'  "Yes." said Mr. South Orange,  "country   checks nave   to   pay   tnat  now "  "But we don't, live in the country!"  cried Mrs. South Orn-ngr Indignantly.  "You told me only the other day that  this was a citv  how.'  '  "Yes. it is a city," k id South Orange. "But country checks' Is merely  the n-ame for checks co, .ing from otic  of town. For some nu.Mtlis past the  city people presenting such checks  ihave had to pay ten cents for getting  them  cashed.

I have decided  hereafter, so losg as they don't get all  that we think they're going to get to  just take ten cents off the checks that  I send them.* You see, that tailor  wanted $2 and only got $1.90.

I'll save ten cents, and  they'll get all they would have got if I  had paid 'em all they ought to have  got."  She stopped brenthless, and Mr.  South Orange looked up without a  word. Finally he asked, gently:"Have*  you begun on this yet?"  "Only thought of it last night, while  I was waiting for you to come back  from your bowling club."  "You wait about putting It into  action until I have laid tBo plan before������������������No! You'd better see the President of the bank yourself, and take  his advice.    Good-by; I must run!"  South Orange thought he had rid  himself of the job of explaining matters, but he hadn't. Mrs. Orange returned to the plan at dinner.  "The President said he did not approve of my plan." she said, sadly.  "He said it was all right in theory,  but would militate" asalnst banking  customs, and that I had hardly the legal or moral right to lead an attack  against" those customs alone, as it  would take up much of my time and  inisrht Drove labor in vain. He said  that his advice, as he was President of  a bank, might 6eem prejudi .ed, and  said that your advice ".was more likely  to be quite disinterested than his own.  So he referred me back to you."  South Orange's jaw dropped.  "Look here," he began; "I'll get you  Mill's book on political economy tomorrow���������'the dismal science some one  calls it.

And the good woman, talking herself ���������  so fast that there was no need for either :  or" the guests to iind an answer, hurried  the shivering girl up the stairs, and into  her own bedroom, where she quickly ;  provided her with some clothing to put j  ���������on while her own was dried downstairs j  at the kitchen fire.

Then, with a laugh, Astley  spoke:  "Not inviting outside, is it? And���������  there's a. fire in that room."   ���������  Drawing the outer door slowly to, in  the face of a gust of wind and a whir!  of snow, he looked round towards the  room out of which he had just come.  .The girl .hc-itated, wad*' a movement  forward, as if she would hare burst her  way out of tho house at sight of him,  and then, with a crimson, hang-dog look,  and breathing heavily, turned in tha  direction he indicated. She hoped he  would not follow her, but he did. Ho  came in his turn, into the big, hare room,  with its uncomfortable linoleum-covered  floor, and its rows of deal tables, now  huddled together at one end, which  would be. covered with little white tablecloths and ranged at even distances when  the summer came, to invite the t.ca-  | drinking visitors and excursionists from  Oxford.  Now there wore only two of these  tables in occasional use, and they were  placed near the fire, each with a coiiplo  of worn knives, a few Britannia metal  spoons, and a dusty basin half full of  sugar, to intimate that they were at the  service of the chance visitor.  On each side of the fire was a spring-  less arm-chair, relic of the days of horsehair and crochet antimacassars, and in  one of these Astley had been taking his  ease whon a sudden impulse had urged  him to leave the inn before his fcllow-  .vigitor should make her reappearance.

CHAPTER XIII.  Conclusiou.  Later in the dny, when the morning  had worn into afternoon, Sir Edward  Mortimer came nguin to Danelnnds.  Marjorle's lovely fnco had taken I1I3  fancy very greatly; and hor singularly,  trying position making a clnini on hia  compassioiv it was scarcely to bo wondered at, that he should take moro  than ordinary pains to bo of service to  her.  "Is Miss St. Clt-lr in    tho    dining*  room?" he ns-fked tho policeman who  stood on guard ln tho hall.  "Yes. sir."  "Alone?"  "No, sir���������I think not."  "You think not?   Who Is with her,  then?"  "Why, sir, I can't just tell you���������that  Is to say, I'm not quite sure "  The man was evidently embarrassed,  tnd really did not know what to say.  Sir Edward passed by him hastily,  and tapped at the door of the dining-  room.  "Como ln," said Marjorle's soft volco,  and the baronet, opening the door,  found she was not alone.  Great was his anger as he recognized  her companion.  "You!" he exclaimed/starting bacte  in his surprise, while his face expressed unmitigated disgust and indignation.  Hyde���������or Trevor, to give him hla  real name���������met the young baronet's  angry glance with one of calm, smiling confidence.  "Yes, Sir Edward," he said. "Allow  me to thank you for the kindness you  have shown Miss St. Clair. She has  been telling me of; your visit to her,  this morning."  : Sir Edward turned from him to Marjorie, who 6tood in; soft confusion, a  pink flush on her pale cheek, her eyes  timidly drooped to the floor.  "Miss St. Clair, will you.tell rae what  this means?" he exclaimed, impetuously.  "Nay, let me tell yo- ," interposed  .Trevor, stepping forwaro, and speaking ���������with a frankness which must needs  _.a*re dispelled all mistrust. "I am not  what I 'seem, Sir Edward. I am not  one of that gang of rascals, or-I should  scarcely be here how. .Instead, I an*  the detective who has brought them to  their reward at last."  "The detective!" exclaimed Sir Ed-  Arard, in still deeper bewilderment.  ':��������� "The ' detective., and no other," said  ���������Trevor, laughing. "Marjorie, tell him  ���������that what I say is true."  "It is���������Indeed it Is!" said Marjorie,  clasping her hands together in her  eagerness.  *T need no further assurance, Miss  Bt. Clair." said Si Edward, quietly;  and he turned and gave his hand to  JTrevor.  "Forgive me for having m'tsjudgeA  you,*' he sah , with the frankness of a  Igentleman. "And may I know your  nar e?"  "Trevor���������Fred Trevor, at your ser������  .vi������e."  "Trevor!���������ind Fred.   Can It be ;  but It's impossible!  "What's ._   ossi'" . Sir Edward?**  ".That you should be the Fred Trevoa  of whom T heard a good deal a little  While ago."  "Do you mind telling me who he  Was?"  "Well, he was, or rather he Is, tho  nephew of Sir Edward Trevor of Deten-  _am Park, Sussex. He had a quarrel  with his uncle a year or two ago; and  5 fancy, disappeared mysteriously.  -'T didn't know him at all, but one ot  my sisters did; and that's how I came  to hear.>, good bit   about   him..

"On!" exclaimed Marjorie, "Yon  Bidn't tell mo that."  And she looked at him with, something like reproach.  "Didn't I, dearest,? Well, I didn't  like to seem to beast about myself, you  see," said Trevor, turning to her wl.-.U  such a tender smile that Sir Edward,  even If lie had not heard the term of  endearment must have guessed bow  matters stood between them.  It cost him just a Utile pang, for, if  the truth murt be told, his own'heart  ���������was already inclining very tenderly  towards Marjorie, nnd ns he walked to  DenolandB that 'ifternoon lis had been  Indulging in a very pleasant day-dreara  In which Marjorie had figured a Lady  Mortimer.

At the end of March, the trial ol  Geoffrey Hyde and his accomplices  came on at the assizes.  It was the greatest of all the criminal trials that year; and warm and unstinted was the praise that was poured  out on tho young detective, whose bold I  find skillful coup de main had brought  such a dangerous gang of scoundrels  to punishment.  nyilo was sentenced to penal servitude for life, the others to periods  ranging from eight to fifteen yor.r.i.  No charge was preferred against thi  Unhappy Madeline.  Trevor made lt elenr that she hni\  had no hand in the nefarious schemes  of those to whom she had unhappily  been bound by the closest of human  ties.  Much sympathy was felt for her, os������  peciallj- when it was known thnt sho  became a mother on the very day ol  tho trial.  Her child wns born prematurely���������a  little girl, that lived only for a day.  Madeline, ns she kissed its ..waxon  face, and folded its hands in dealh,  thanked heaven for ils mercy.  ���������Her life Is overshadowed by so darli  a cloud that it seems almost impossible she should ever stand again within  .the sunshine.  ., And yet who can tell T  ' She is very young, and heaven la  Oaerciful.  Marjorie is tender and sweet to her.  and has often begged her to come and  stay with her In,her new home; but  this Madeline will never do, in spita  sf her deep love for Marjorie.  Instead, she lives in a .great" city,  ���������where she busies herself among tho  poor, and is especially solicitous for  the welfare of young children whoso  parents are; or have been, criminals.  Very early in the autumn Mnrjorl*  tecame Fred Trevors wife.  It was quite a fashionable wedding,  for society chose to interest : itself  hugely in the young man, and in the  bride whom he had wooed and won  in so strangely romantic a fashion.  ��������� His detective exploits.were over before his marriage, for his uncle, Sir  Richard, ha* partly through the friendly offices of Sir Edward Mortimer, .become reconciled to him and reinstated  him as his heir.  -Sir Edwardacted as,best man'.at tht  .wedding, and his sisters were Mar-  Jarle's bridesmaids: '  ; All the world and his wife were there  and the lovely young bride was, ol  course, the" eynosuro ������t ail tyerl  : One ef'tke prettiest weddings ot tht  season,[declared society,:and;certain-  fly the most interesting  ' Sir Richard settled a handsome income - on his nephew and bought a  fceautIful>house for'him in1 Surrey.  There he and Marjorie were happil)  ensconced, a staid married pair'of almost live months, -when St. Valentine's  Day again came round.  Trevor was up early in the morning.  Tt was bis invariable rule to take a  four or five miles' walk before breakfast, and he wanted to be back in time'  to greet his Marjorie when she came  aownstairs.  The clock struck nine as she entered  their pretty breakfast-room, looking  (fresh and fair as a rose in her dainty  ���������morning-gown, with a soft flush on  (her cheeks and the light of love and  Siappiness in her eyes.  "Well,.sweet.hea-'- "was her hus-  iband's greeting, showing they had not  quite degenerated into prosy old married folk after all.

LINCOLN MOORE  Pastor Riverside Baptist Church,  New York City.  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ.-���������  Romans, i., I.  It is said that no one can look upon  the matchless statue of the Apollo  Belvidere without instinctively drawing  up himself. Such is the influence of  perfection in the realm of art. A beautiful character has precisely the same  influence in the realm of morals.  No one can read the biography of  Paul, the master Christian, and carefully study his character, without feeling a conscious moral uplift, expansion and inspiration. Survey him first  intellectually. Paul was naturally endowed with the highest order of intellect His natural endowments were  developed and strengthened by study,  and his mind was enriched by profound learning, drawn from every realm  ol thought.  His was a comprehensive mind and  an expressive mind. Despite his modest disclaimer of eloquence, Paul possessed the rarest oratorical gifts, a  yivid imagination, a brilliant invention,  fervor and depth of feeling, presence  of mind, readiness and exactness of observation and command of language.  His first recorded sermon is a model  of analytical and rhetorical skill. In  his defence before Agrippa Paul shows  his wonderful power of adaptation. His  sudden transitions prove his mastery  of the rhetorican's art.  His was a honiiletical mind. Paul  made his sermons definite, practical,  fervid. His sermons possess unity, order, movement, point. Nothing was  admitted except on business. He ai-  ,ways adapted himself to the occasion,  the circumstances and to his audience.  Too many preachers lack fervor, adaptation and knowledge of men. They  are mouldy . pedants, useless book  worms, unfitted to dwell witli living,  aspiring working men.  The heart lies at the root of all  eloquence." The great defect in the  modern pulpifis want of heart Many  able and scholarly .preachers do not  touch the sensibilities and kindle emotion. Their- formal discourses, dried  preparations joined together by,, arbitrary ligaments, are as meagre aud  lifeless as,a skeleton articulated wrth  iron wires. Enamored of the truth,  impelled by a mighty motive, swayed  by a great, loving heart, Paul's sermons were expressions of what he  himself was.-*-What his*luminous mind  saw his warm heart felt and his eloquent lips expressed. Every sentence  comes to us laden with heart power  and burning eloquerce.  His "was,a theological mind. .Paul's  epistles when arranged in chronological  order show that his mind.-was ever  getting a profounder grasp of truth.  He is pre-eminently the thinker of  ��������� Christianity; as a theologian he_ is unsurpassed and unsurpassi le. Like the  sun in the heavens, he stands without  a rival. For nineteen centuries he has  ruled in the'realm of theology, appearing in every ecclesiastical council,  entering every theological "discussion1  and settling all doctrinal disputes. In  brief, Paul was an intellectual giant,  a-theological genius. "He has beggared the past and bankrupted the future." .- ���������;  And now "survey Paul morally. He  strode the earth li!;**. a moral Colossus, rebuking ruler-, ignoring armies,  shaking thrones, liberating" nations,  upbuilding the king-Jom of God. Hot  his intellectual power, not his oratorical power, but his moral power gave  him supremacy. His character gave  projectile force to his words. He was  self-sacrificing. Paul gladly ga-e up  his Jewish ' preferences and privileges, cheerfully sacrificing _ all  hope of worldly honor and political  pre'lermentHe willing^ endured bonds  and imprisonments, perils on land and  sea, for Christ burned at the glowing  centre of his heart, and no sacrifice  .which he might make could possibly  express his gratitude for the great salvation.  Paul was conscientious. Evenbcfore  _his_conversion_he rcvcrenced_l_s_con-_  s.cience as king. Afcer his conversion  he was governod. invariably by the  same principle. He did always and only  that which his conscience approved ai  right He exercised himself to have  always a conscience void of offence toward God and toward man. He was  courageous. Everywhere he lived the  feero. Paul was ever valiant for the  truth. He never attempted to purchase  safety by a ooli������*y of trimming or recantation. The chains of imprisonment,  the stripes of the scourge, the agony  pf martyrdom could not move him.  . Paul was a man of prayer. Every-  ���������Whcre, always, he exercised the gracious ministry of prayer. With a chain  on either arm, he was still a stupendous agency for good. His devout  heart was like a great galvanic battery; it enabled hi-n, despite all hindrances, to communicate with dis'*. tnt  friends in Palestine or Italy, in Greece  or Asia Minor, and influence their  destinies. A man of prayer is always  a man of power. Prayer, is the secret of his successful life. Paul's moral  character rises before us in all- its  peerless beauty. Surely the Master's  beauty is, reflected in' His servant, and  from the servant we turn a**' .'ugly tn  the Master, all radiant with celestial  beauty.  From this study of Paul's life tern  a lesson of divine 'inspiration. While  the apostle in the loftier attribu'es of  his character greatly transcends" us  and we despair of reaching the lofty  altitude which he attained, yet in his  weaker m ints he confessed failure,  and this brings hiin very near to in  and we arc encouraged to persevere  in our efforts after Christlikcness. Let  God's grace'work freely in our hearts.  Divine grace is a sculptor working out  in tis a*grand ideal. The real greafess  of a man begins when God marches  into his being.

This, from The New York Tribune,  would, no doubt, if it met his eye, involve Mr. Chamberlain in a ilerco mental  struggle as to whether he should go on  with his South Afrlcun tour, or depart  immediately   for   Philadelphia :  The flower pot was like a toy. Tho  moss in it would not have made a teaspoonful. Out of the moss two tiny  leaves, each less thnn it hiilf-ineh long,  peeped, '''hey wero vaiii'g.ited leaves;  tlieir right halves weie green and their  left halves white. Pot, earth, leave** and  all, this plant would have slipped easily  into a man's waistcoat poeket. And vet  $10,000 had been oli'ered for it. It did  not weigh an ounce. There was nothing to it but two tiny leaves upon a  stem less than" an inch long. Yet it  was worth $10,000. It waa an orchid in  the collection of .Mrs. George B. Wilson  of Philadelphia. Mrs. Wilson's orchids  are said to be the finest in America;  some say the finest in the world. The  little plant was a cross between a Cat-  tleya aurea and a Cattleya labiata. It  was two years old, and it would be  five years more before it would begin to  bloom. But it was the only orchid in  tho world with leaves half green and  half white, and therefore Sanders, the  English collector, seeing it in November,  said:  "I will give you $10,000 for it."  But Mrs. Wilson's gardener replied :  "Wa buy all we can, but we never  sell."  An .unknown enemy some years ago  entered one of Mrs. Wilson's preen-  houses by night and poisoned a half-  dozen of her most valuable plants.* The  plants sickened, and in a fow days died.  They were eattleyas, and their value  exceeded $10,000. To discover the cause  of their mysterious death they wero  submitted to a* chemist for analysis. Ho  found them permeated with a violent  poison. The drug, he decided, had been  sprayed on their aerial roots, and they  had absorbed it quickly. The police of  the city were informed, and a number  of detectives tried to find the poisoner,  directing their attention mainly to the  professional-rivals of the gardener, Peri-  cat. Thoy had no success, however, aa_  the muidorer of the flowers is still at  large. -Since'that fatality the Wilson  greenhouses "have all been protected  with an elaborate system ~ ot 'safety*  locks-      .

Following our articles on the adulteration of timothy and nl*>ikc, to-il.iy  we present the result of the roil clover  tests, concluding this series, which has  been of vital importance both to farmers and the public, with those comments which deserve the most serious  study and earnest  consideration:���������  Quebec samples were practically oi  the same nature as those found in the  seed obtained from Ontario. -Nearly  all the clover seed offered was reported to have been obtained by the local  dealer from wholesale firms in thc Province of Quebec. By far thc worst  samples came from Yamaska, Iberville,  Chartierville, Montreal and Quebec.  Only one out of twenty-one samples  obtained in the Province of .New  Brunswick had been taken from seed  grown in the Province. In fact, practically all the red clover seed offered  in New Brunswick had been obtained  from Montreal and Toronto wholesale  houses. One lot from Bathurst was  very bad. A ten-gram sample (about  one-third of an ounce) of this seed contained the following weed seeds; lamb's  quarter, 8o seeds; stickweed, 4; Canada  thistie, 21; catnip, 17; mayweed, 5;  barnyard grass, 1; curled dock, 44;  green foxtail, 303; yellow foxtail, 3;  panicum glabrum, 15; plantain, 8; bull  thistle, 1; black medick, 55; and black-  bindweed, 2; in addition to having nine  seeds of white clover, 245 of timothy  and 953 of alsike. Two samples from  St John and.one from Woodstock contained charlock or wild mustard. Three  of the samples from St. John and Bathurst, each contained eighteen or more  species of weed seeds. With the exception of one from Bathurst, all the  samples showed a high percentage germination during the first .three clays.  but only a few of them were reasonably  pure. Twelve' out of the twenty-two  samples contained over g.oop weed  seeds perpountL-eight containing over  10,000 weed seeds per pound. *  In Nova Scotia a bad sample from  Yarmouth had been "imported from a  Boston seed house and was evidently  eld seed, judging from its color and  slow germination. The farmers who  were so unfortunate as to buy seed  from this lot.paid four times its first  cost for the pure living seed contained in, this sample. The farmers oi  Nova Scotia have been paying too high  a price for their red clover seed. One  sample contained (from Weymouth) twenty-two species ** of  weed seeds. ". The nature and*  prevalence of thc impurities of the s-eci  from the Province oi Nova Scotia are  much the same as those from the other  Provinces.  Charlock or wild mustard seed was  found in large    quantities in samples 1  from some dealer.,, one set of seeds :  containing    sixteen    species of    weed  accordingly; nor is it too much to require seed merchants to furnish a statement showing the percentage of purity  aad vitality, of the grass and clover  seeds which they sell, instead of merely issuing a non-warranty declaration.  There is a great need for wise measures and energetic and persistent efforts to protect Canadian farmers and  their fields'from the far-reaching and  long-continuing damages which arise  from the sale of. seeds which contain  noxious impurities.  As long as Canadian farmers are  content to use cheap low grades of  seed without possessing any definite  knowledge of their real value, so long  will the best quality of our home-grown  seeds be exported to countries where  the seed trade is conducted on a more  businesslike basis than is the custom in  this Dominion.  The sale of seeds containing seeds of  such weeds as bindweed or wild morning glory, wild oats, charlock, or wild  mustard, field pennycress or stinkweed,  and perennial sow-thistle should be restricted or wholly prohibited.  It is desirable that uniform methods  for grading grass and clover seeds, according to fixed standards of purity and  vitality, be adopted for Canada. Any  seeds containing an admixture of noxious impurities should not be represented or sold as a Number One grade.

The black man  of thc soutli in general no longer has  his right to vote. The right to aspire  to office is generally disputed and in  a great measure denied. A curious development, has been seen within the  past year along this line. President  Roosevelt has appointed fewer black  men to office in the south than did  President McKinley. There are fewer  black men holding federal offices in the  south now that there were when Mr.  McKinley died. Yet outcries are to be  heard throughout thc south against  what is called President Roosevelt's  policy of appointing negroes to office,  when under Presidents McKinley,  Harrison and Hayes nothing was said,  .whereas more negroes were appointed,  Humor ef Mo Hour.

TAYLOR  INTERVIEWED  TOILET SOAP  Storekeeper's Departure  Mr. E. J. Fort], who for the past few  *thontlis--has-been=acting-as=G-*=EUJ_=  storekeeper here, left on yesterday's  No 1 on a vacation trip to the -coast  and probably to -San Francisco.  While here Mr. Ford lias made hosts  of friends all of whom extremely regret his departure. After his holiday"  he will return to his home in Montreal.  It is possible, however, that he will  return to British Columbia shortly to  take up his permanent residence.  Requesting Government Aid to  River Ferry, Death Rapids  Tramway and Manual Training School���������Election Imminent  Thomas Taylor, M.P.P., arrived in  the city on Friday morning when the  Herald had the pleasure of a short  interview. His visit, here was on  private business and hud nothing to do  with politics.  Mr. Taylor flrst expressed himself us  much pleased with the proposed introduction of manual traiui.ig in the  public school* of interior cities and  stated that he was using every effort  towards having the appropriation for  initiatory expenses, as urged by the  IIkkai-d, included in the estimates.  He will endeavour to arrange joiut,  action on the part of the members for  the constituencies concerned.  Asked as to the condition of affairs  at Victoria, Mr. Taylor was unwilling  to expross'an opinion. He considered  that being a member of the legislature,  a committed of which was conducting  the investigation, it would not be in  good taste for him to say anything  regarding the evidence adduced until  the committee had made their report  to the House. He has every confidence, however, iu the good faith of  the committee and is sure that no  guilty person will escape. The prompt  acceptance of Mr. Oliver's motion for  an investigation by the Premier, Mr.  Taylor further said, had materially  strengthened Col. Prior in Victoria,  as whatever might ne thought of some  previous matters in which he was  concerned his course regarding the  Columbia and Western deal had been  most straightforward.  Taking up other matters of local  interest, Mr. Taylor said he had  devoted considerable attention to  connection between Kevelstoke and  the other side of the riyer. He  realized the growing business importance of the mills and settlement on  thu west bank and thought something  better than the present dangerous  route across the railway bridge should  be providud at once. "The so called  arrangement-between the C.P.R. did  not appear to have any foundation in  fact, and the cost of a, foot bridge  would be" in the vicinity of .$30,000.  It would be impossible |o secure such  an amount for some time, but, in the  interval something should be done*.  A ferry is, in Mr. Taylor's opinion, the  best that can be bopeu for and he is  doing all in his power to have an  appropriation put in the estimates for  its construction.  While heie Mr. Taylor was interviewed : by several prominent men  regarding the proposed tr.iiiiway  around Dentil Rapids and the provision of: ;a Steiiiuer on the Upper  waters of the Columbia. Tlrs matter  had not been brought to the attention  of themenilier.'hel'ore, but heat once  promised;; his j;: hearty ��������� suppirt to  Government ard in this direction. ��������� He  has arranged to have a plan of the  proposed tramway, its estimated cost  and'-ill other pYirlicularo sent to him at  Victoria arid will 'at once take Ibe  niiilter up witli'the Government. He  pointed out. however. Unit it was  rather a late date for"'such a proposition to be mooted this year as it  would have to go in the* supplementary  estimates in which it wnsiery hard to  secure insertion of such an item,  Mr Taylor has evidently been  watching with interest the first productions of gold from Goldfields, Fish  River, and predicts for it, in common  wilh other mining camps in the  vicinity of Revelstoke, _ very bright  future. He stated I hut recent advices  from Trout L-ike had also b. en most  satisfactory and that taken nil in all  North West Kontenny should be the  banner district of the Province for  1908.  Requested to give an opinion as to  the probability of a general election  Mr. Taylor"'s-iid that it was almost  certain. No party in the House as at  present constituted could have absolute control, though Mr. McBride,  if called upon to form a Government  would secure some support fiom the  other side and have a small majority.  It is conceded by the members themselves that the inevitable outcome will  tie the formation of a Conservative  cabinet followed by an appeal to the  country on party lines as noon its the  estimates are passed.  situations can be assured them on  arrival. Their transportation and  oilier small incidental expenses will,  in tbe first instance, be pii'd by their  eniployeisandt.be amount refunded  them by a. deduction every month  from the servant's wages lifter they  have entered upon their employment.  This is a most feasible way of mooting the circumstances of the case, and  tho Hkhai.d advises all those interested to communicate at once with Rev.  0. R. Procmiier, at St. Peter's  Rectory, or Miss ltiddell, at Reid &  Young's, who will be pleased to  furnish any further particular  necessary.  Unique Cutlery.  Among the hardware novelties  introduced in the west by 0. B. Hume  <& Co., Limited, one of the most, useful  is Edwards' prospector's knife and  fork, which by an ingenious arrangement of each ailiclt*. fitting into the  handle of the oi bur renders breakage,  cutting or pricking impossible. Tbe  invention is a, un.del of compactness  with hardwood biiirllcs and brass  trimmings and should be much in  del i in ml for picnic and camping  parties. When sheathed both articles  occupy no more space than nn  ordinary table knife and can be easily  carried in the pocket. .

PROMPT DISPEH8INC OF PRESCRIPTIONS  WALTER BEWS  I>rii(*glnt niul .Stationer. Next Hiimf- Block  lo the Editor of the Hkrald:  Sir:     I am much surprised that the  City   Council   has   not   seen    fit*,   to  officially    recognize   the   fact  of the  great struggle   unfortunately waging  between the C.P.R. and an important  body of its employees.     Representing  as it does, the -interests of un   important railway city, a city that   must lie  supported   largely , through   the     industry of railway men, , it is proper to  expect  some    expression   from     the  Council on this matter.     If the Revelstoke     City   Council . cannot  pass a  resolution endorsing the action of tbe  U.B.R.E.  in it's struggle for unionism  and justice, it is lacking in u sense   of  public duty,   and   we   must   suppose  that thc   threat   re removal   of shops  followed as it was by'the farce  of the  Board of Trade   meeting   in   relation  thereto, is having a permanent  effect  upon the courage of our city   fathers.  Revelstoke interests  are   broadening  and if thc Council considers  it  duties  consist entirely of looking after roads  and sidewalks and   moving old btrild-  iigs all over the town, it   is   in   error  and needs a jolt. If the city is flourishing and prosperous it is   useful   labor  here and   elsewhere   that has   caused  such conditions,   and  nothing   more.  Let our City Council give to C.P.R.  labor    the    moral    support    of   its  formerly expressed sympathy  in   this  struggle for its rights,  H. Edwahdh.  May 17th, 1903,  Postmaster Resigning  ���������It-iK=currently-Tumored on.thestreet  corners that A. McRae has resigned,  or is about to resign, his positio lias  postmaster of this city. As a reason  for this step it is stated that Mr. McRae will extensively engage in lumlier-  ing operations in tbe future. He has  recently acrjuired large timlier interests in the Kootenay. It is also  rumoured that one cause of J. M.  JCellie's trip east was a desire to obtain  the refusal of tbe billet.  Very Valuable Ore Body on the  Georgie. Reggie and Otto-  Deal on for Transfer of the  Donald.  A mining camp directly tributary lo  Revelstoke is lire north" fork of the  Iliecillewaet, and recent development  there bhow that the prospects for  mining on a large scale commencing  shortly nre very bright. One of the  mining men who have always had  faiih in that locality is Mr." David  Woolsey, and the Hbkai.d is glad to  ascertain that lecent work on some of  liis properties h>is revealed some very  liiRh grade ore.  Th-gioiip in question consists of the  Georgie, Reggie and Otto mineral  claims and is situated on the north  fork of the Iliecillewaet river about  nineteen miles from Alb.rt Canyon.  Three men have been working on the  property nil winter and there is now  110 feet of tunnelling, SO feet cross-  cutting nnd 30 feet drifting on the  vein. The mineral values of the ore  nre in gold, silver and copper and give  veiy x-itisfiictoi-y returns, lhe silver  contents being particularly high. In  1800 a. trial shipment of four tins was  made to the Trail smeller- and the  values demonstrated were the cause of  further prosecution of work. Operations so (t\v have been in the direction  of development only and no attempt  has been made lo produce any ore.  But in stripping the vi ia on tin-  surface for lifty feet some orp wns  necessarily removed*, niul about 7 or 8  tons aie now sacked above ibe month  of the tunnel. The average ( ontents  of Ibis ore his been found to !>*��������� 000 oz.  silver, ."57.20 gold, and 81 per cent,  copper lo Lhe Ion. and the "recent rise  in Ihe price cf silver has enhtneed its  value considerably. At present-market  prices this ore is worth $510 per tou-ilt  the mine. >*,  The vein on the properly is a well  defined one. a pay streak on the foot  .wall underground 0 lo S inches wide  running-117 oz silver und 10 per cent,  copper, while, another on the banging  wall has fiom 8 to 12 inches of about  equal value. At* lhe end of lhe 80 foot  cross cut the oie body is a solid one 10  inches wide and f ml ber investigation  of it is to be made at once.  Anntbei milling property in this  district is the Donald, about live miles  east of Iliecillewaet, also the property  of Mr. WooUey. There has been a  large amount, of development done on  this claim, an 80 foot shaft being sunk  and some 900 feet of tunnelling. This  is a galena proposition having a value  of aliout $75 to tbe ton. It is nndei-  stood that a deal is now on for the  pin chase of the property at* n large  figure. If the matter goes through n  concentrator will be built at once and  active mining commenced.  Hospital Donations.

Desirable Domestics.  An   item   which   appeared   in   last  week's Herald   regarding   proposed  measures   to   remove   the   dearth   of  desirable female domestics has aroused  a large amount of favorable attention.  It is well known  that   practically   all  householders of this city ���������much object  to  Mongolian   help,   but  up   to   thc  present  it   lias   been    impossible   to  secure any other class of servants.  ��������� A   movement  is   now   on   fooc   to  remedy this difficulty and the   following particulars of the scheme, should  receive careful attention from those  who wish to assist in   making British  Columbia a white man's country.     It  is   proposed,   through   a    competent  agent In Ontario,   to  arrange  tor the  engaging of about fifty young   girls,  thoroughly    trained    for     domestic  service and of   irreproachable  character, to come to Revelstoke provided  Vernon Assizes.
