The" Kootenay-Bonn.lary division  is mode up of the following r provincial election  districts: Bevclstoko, Columbia, Fernie, Cran-  lirook, Ynrir, Kaslo, Slocan, Grand Forks, Greenwood, the City of Bossland and the City nf Nelson.  At the same meeting the following resolutions  were adopted,  1.

D. Sibbald Brings Down  More Gold from the Hydraulic  Claims ��������� Smith and French  Creeks Look Well.  Mr. J. D. .Sibbald,manager of the  McCullough Cr-eek Hydraulic Mining  Co., came to town the other day and  returned Tuesday morning to the properties. He brought with him, as  usual, a I lag- of nuggets from the  claims which show that gold on the  creek is not .'only.: present ..in large  quantities but is very coarse in character. His force of men are busily at  work on the pipe line and he hopes to  .Hive... it* completed by July 8th."at  latest, when hydraulicing will be commenced at once.  The gold brought down this trip  averages from $2 to $5 to the piece  and was picked up on liedrock in the  course of operations necessary to  build the pipe line. It was in no,sense  the result of actual work'oh the property but merely an incident of development. - "..'���������.it'll the monitor gets to  .work' regularly Mr.' Sibbald believes  the output of gold will be large.  On French creek Mr. li. A. Brildley  is -steadily working on his newly  acquired properties and has every hope  that, as predicted, they will lie on a  pitying basis before .September 1st.  The present development has shown  presence of the yellow metal in quantities and as soon as drifting on bedrock is commenced the richness of  French cr-eek will prove to be equal at  depth to the surface deposits worked  over during the Big Berrd rush.  The Smith creek properties are looking well and all indications point to a.  most successful season for1 those engaged in deep placer mining in the  Big Bend. These workings can never  suffer from the shortage of water that  this season as last is crippling operations in Cariboo and in a very short  time the country to the north of Revelstoke will be a large factor in the  gold production of British Columbia.'  council the sum of five dollars per  night for each public performance,  such performance to be rendered each  Saturday night during tin* months of  June, July, August and September',  circumstances permitting, thu band to  play alternately at each end of town  provided" suitable . standsj be erected.

LAUNDKV8  Three by-laws regarding removal of  certain laundries and one making  further regulations as to location were  reconsidered and finally passed.      '  WATEK SUPPLY  The Mayor opened the ball on this  important matter and stated that  when improvement of water 'was be.  ing" considered the- lighting system  should be taken up.. The building of  a hew reservoir, costing about $1000,.  as recommended by J. A.' Kirk, was  thet. matter how to be considered.  Aid. McLeod did not approve of I  expenditure this year but thought j  present tank should l>e lined at once.  To this Ald.r MeMahon agreed, '".and  thought the creek about a mile from  the reservoir should be investigated;  Aid. Law supported the suggestion to  fix iip old tank and let. new one proposed, .wait.:!.'. '���������..-.*���������..���������'���������---....������������������*���������-  The Mayor said, ^-egarding the  bringing of water froni the new creek,  that if this was done it would be -well  to build a million gallon cement  reservoir. Aid. Hume closed the discussion by saying that .there, was a lot  of hearsay talk about othei- creeks but  no one seemed to be in possession of  facts.-'*'  .... Accordingly there  was  no   change.|  from the decision of the special   meet-  ihg a week before to line the tank and  repair the two dams.

Nelson, June If).���������(Special)���������There  was a big crowd at the lacrosse match  here this afternoon both grand stands  being full and the Nelson band enlivened proceedings with several selections. And although Revelstoke went  down 7 to 0 against the champions of  Kootenay the visitors had nothing to  be ashamed of as the score hardly  represented the respective abilities of  the players. On several occasions the  visitors came very near scoring, particularly in -the second quarter when  Dodds Bros, and Cao put up a very  good game. The line up was as follows:  NELSON      ' " ' P.EVEI-ITOKI-  Grey erbiehl Goal Trimble  Jeffs I'oint Hyatt  McCorvie Cover   Point   Co-rhlin  C Jeffs 1st Defence Wickens  Tavlor '.2nd Defence   Dodd-s  Williamson 3rd Defence Edwards  Thompson.."

For Nelson  Rutherford, Perrier and * the Jeffs  brothers played particularly well while  of the visitors the best were probably  Trimble in goal, Cao,"; Woods and  Hyatt. - Graham in centre worked like  atrojan.  , Directly the final whis'le sounded  the Revelstoke team gave three cheers  for the Nelsons which were returned  with interest, a large number of spectators joiniiif*; in this expression of  good fellowship. The Revelstoke boys  will have a splendid welcome when  they visit Nelson again.  ���������.'v..-VICTORY AT ROSSLAND. ,  Rossland, June 20.���������(Special)���������The  local lacrosse tearh. suffered defeat' at  the hands of your city this afternoon  after a most exciting game. Tlie  attendance was rather small owing to  rain which did hot cease until 2:45, but  there was an enthusiastic gathering on  the bleachers and grand stand. In the  flrst quarter it looked to be going our  way as Rossland scored 3 to Revelstoke's 1. The second quarter evened  things up. At three-quarter time the  score wits Revelstoke -0, Rossland 5  and the fourth quarter finished with a  tie of 6 each. An extension of time  was necessary and it was decided to  continue playing until one side scored  and Revelstoke landed the lucky goal  in four minutes.winniiig the niatchby  7 goalsto 6. Revelstoke's goal keeper  is a good ono and Coghlan, Dodds  Bros., Edwards, Hyatt and Woods  showed up well. Rosslaud's stars  were Summers, McKinnon and Percy  Wilkinson. Field Captain Kincaid, of  Revelstoke, sized up the poor financial  position of our club and handed Charlie Summers, the Rossland secretary,  a five dollar bill for the good of the  game.

AStlOOD AS  CRIPPLE CREEK  The Opinion of W.   H. > Bland  Regarding-  Fish River���������Says  .Will    Waken    Sleepy     old  Victoria.  Mr. W. H. Bland, a capitalist and  mining man of Whatcom, recently  returned from a tour of investigation  into the merits of Fish river and adjacent camps. Before returning home  lie was good enough to give the  Herald his conclusions in regard to  some of the properties inspected.  "In the first place,*' said Mr. Bland,  "I don't think the people of your  Province understand fully its great  mineral resources. The Fish river  camp, from which I have just returned, has every prospect of becoming  another Cripple creek, and yet the  papers in big cities at the const only  accasioually mention its existence.  And yet they could do much good by  sending representatives to visit it.  There is no need for any booming,  just let them state facts as they find  them and it-will be-thu-fault-of your  own , citizens if they do not pick up  some of the good things. I had heard  casually of the cam}} in question, but  it was not until its very good friend  Mr. VV. B. Poop insisted on my coming  up that I. realized Fish river might lx*  worth investigating.  "And so it was. On such properties  as the Eva and Oyster-Criterion there  arc immense showings of free gold  and sufficient development has been  clone to prove the permanence of the  veins. The work, too, has been performed in a first class manner,  particularly on the latter, and I think  that as soon its the mills get running  even your sleepy old capital, Victoria,  willopeh its eyes and discover, there  are good investments, for those wishing a permanent; income, in British  Columbia mines. : The Oyster-Cri-  .terion has .been opened up most  systematically, and . I spent quite a  long time examining the leads, and  must say that Mr. Pool has in every  case done the right thing to get the  ore   to   the   mill   at. the smallest ex-  othbr places.    -  Vancouver is jubilant over beating  Westminster 7 to 4 on Saturday.

You t__ke  my word for it, Fish River is going to  be a big camp in the near future and  I intend returning about August and  seeing what I can get hold of there.  I would have stayed but am compelled  to go into the Mount Baker- country  where I have some interests and see  work well under way there. After  that is done I shall certainly make a  further examination of Fish rivor.  .*������*. .*������*. .T. .ft*. .*_*. .*-*. .T. .*t*. ������*t*. .*������������������ .*!*��������� .'  1^,1 ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty-*.  rtytytyty  B  ourne  B  ros.  ���������  CO  c  Boiled Linseed Oil  3  a.

Havo   Itcr-lll'lici.   to   (hi*   1-.IIK-.  The experience of tlie Fox Hay squatters   of  Anticosti     Island   when   transplanted   to  Manitoba     shows   that,   although thc farmer may be a good li-.li-  cr, the contrary  !s not   the  ease.    Ac-  eoidiirg to Mr. Jas.  Osborne, lie is  the  last of these settlers lo leave Manitoba.  He  says  they worked hard as agriculturists", hut their minds were constantly reverting to the freedom and charm  of their former condition.      In   a  few  instances  they  met  with   a  fair  measure of success, but in the end pined like  children for the salt breezes of the Gulf  of St. Lawrence, and eventually one by  one returned to the Atlantic coast.   His  story of thc failure of these frugal people to make n home on the prairies is  full  of pathos.    In  the  first place  the  climate was unsuited to the newcomers.  They had been accustomed to the_.alu-  hiious climate of the gulf, and the eold.  dry climate of Manitoba made them feel.  as they themselves express it, like lish  out of water.     These islanders, too, had  spfiit  their  lives  fishing  and   hunting;,  farming was now to them.     Then it was  so  monotonous.      Eaeh    morning  tliey  awakened,    and  instead    of   the   ever*  changing seascape they saw' nothing but  prairie.     Thoy worked listk's������ly all day,  and  vowed   to   return   to   their   native  shores.      But it was not easy for such  people to pick un and get out, so thoy  worked away until the climate and the  changed conditions  began  to  tell upon  their health, and.strong robust men ami  women began to pine and weaken.   Then  began tho movement eastward.

None, who, fatigued by over* j  exenion of body or mind, has ever ex-|  perienc-d   the   reviving  influence  of  a'  U-.mbler of this beverage, heated as hoi  as it can be sipped, will willingly forego a resort to it because of its being  rendered  somewhat  less acceptable  tc  thc palate.   The promptness witli which  its  cordial  inlhicncc  is  felt    is  imlecc  surprising.    Some portion of it seems  to be digested and assimilated almost  immediately, and many who now fancy  they need alcoholic stimulants when exhausted  by  fatigue,  will     find  in   this  draught an equivalent that will be abundantly satisfying and  far more enduring in its effects.    This should be taken note of by al! hard-working people  ���������Dairy World (England).  Feed Brood Mares Well.  Feed the brood mares liberally thai  arc carrying foals, says Tlie Horse  Breeder. They should be kept in good  condilion, but not ''hog fat." Mares  that are not blanketed, and whose hair  stands on end, often look to be in better condition than they actually are  Place the hand upon their ribs and hips  and it will be found that there is bill  little meat upon their bones. Such  mares need a more liberal ration ol  grain and better quality, of hay than  they have been getting, or their foals  will be starved before they are drop  ped, and'afterwards, too. Mares thai  are very thin in flesh will not yield so  large a quantity, of milk as would the  same mares if in good condition. Foals  that, begin life under such conditions  can never make so valuable animals as  they would have made under more favorable conditions. It is poor economy  to keep brood mares thin in flesh, and  the first thing to do is to so regulate  that the food will do its natural work.

Tlie following from The London  Daily Express shows in what manner  the new English licensing act is working :���������Thc first appeal under the new  licensing act is that of Lady Lawson  against a separation granted her husband, Sir Charles Lawson, on the  ground that she was a "'habitual drunkard." It was argued in her behalf that  Sir Charles deserted hi* wife last July,  and thus debarred himself from relief  under lhe act Counsel raised thc  point whether habitual 'drunkenness  would justify desertion. "When this licensing act was passed." said Sir Francis Jcune���������the appeal came before the  Divorce President j*ii:1 Mr. Justice  Barnes, sitting as a Divisional Court���������  "1 tried very hard to get the committee to bring the principles of this court  to apply in the act, but they would not  do it. This act applies to a married  woman, but not to a married man, and  that, with all respect to thc Legislature, seems to me perfectly ridiculous."  In dismissing the appeal with costs,  Sir F. Jcune said it was quite clear that  desertion in the eyes of the law meant  desertion without reasonable excuse.

The Cuban Treaty.  Dreyfus Case Again.  Looming large on thc French horizon is the threatened recrudescence ol  the.Dreyftij affair, which is to come up  not  iu  a  court  of justice,  but  in   thc  House of Representatives.   .The  campaign for thc reopening of the matter  is being led by M_tl. Jaures and Francis  de  Pressensc,  but in  Conservative  quarters there is grave doubt of the opportunism  of  the    whole    affair,   and  there can be no question but that the  Republicans think il much better io-allow thc matter to subside rather than  reopen a quarrel which so profoundly  divided France.  Thc question seems to  be whether or not new facts exist which  will  prove  Dreyfus   innocent,   even   lo  those who arc inosi unwilling lo believe    him    so.        Even     those    who  believe       in       the        existence       of  such  facts  point  out I'n at in  bringing  the subject before Parliament there is  great danger that thc Conservative Opposition, thc Nationalists, and    chielly  the anti-Semites, will find an excellent  pretext lo begin again their campaign  against the republic, for the "only wish  of these groups is to so discredit the  republic that the people will decide a  change of regime is necessary.      The  latest evidence of thc hostility of Francois Goppee toward this government ol  "anarchy,  shame  and  persecution,"  as  he calls it, has been his refusal to pay  his taxes.   The consequence of this was  that M. Coppee's furniture was seized  and offered at public sale.   Before thc  actual sale of thc property took.placc  M.  Coppce let it    be known  that he  would sell  at this auction  one of his  manuscripts, the Luthier de  Crcmonc,  and the incident   proved M. Coppee's  admirers to be sufficiently loyal to pay  no less ������hair 4,000 francs for the manuscript,  a   sum  which   was   move  than  sufficient to satisfy thc amount of thc  tax assessment, this being not over 20a  francs.���������Public-Opinion.  The concluding work of the special  session of the Senate, says the Wash  ington correspondent of The Chicago  Tribune, was the ratification of the reciprocity treaty with Cuba, but with  amendments put on in the Foreign Relations Committee lo satisfy the piratical demands of thc beet sugar crowd,  both  Republicans and Democrats.  The treaty as a whole was ratified by  a vote of 50 to 16. The opposition  was even less than was anticipated because, allowing for pairs, there was  considerably more than two-thirds ol  iho full membership of the Senate in  favor of the treaty as amended. There j  is a bare possibility that even this rati- j  licatiorr will not be sufficient. The j  treaty as a whole was previously ratified by thc Cuban Senate, but now that  the agreement has been amended by  the United Slates an entirely new ratification by Cuba will become necessary,  and there is a bare possibility that ratifications cannot be exchanged within  the limit of time.  Under the,amendment made requiring thc consent of Congress before thc  treaty goes into effect all possibility ol  benefiting the Cuban sugar planters 011  this year's crop is disposed of. For  this reason it is quite within the range  of possibility that the Cubans may decline to ratify the treaty. There are  some fears of this, arrd if it should  prove to be the case the United States  will lose a large and profitable exclusive trade -with the Island of Cuba.  Most people have lost sight of the  fact that thc Cuban reciprocity treaty  is a double-barrelled affair. It does  let in to thc United States Cuban sugar  and tobacco and some other articles at  a reduction of 20 per cent, below the  Dingley tariff rates. The same treaty,  however, gives a preference to American manufacturers, amounting in some  cases to 40 per cent, of the Cuban  tariff.  This preference in the markets ol  Cuba will be absolutely denied to the  United States all of this year owing to  the selfish opposition of the beet-sugar  trust, and farmers, cattle raisers- and  manufacturers of thc United State3 will  lose more this year by the delay than  would pay for the entire beet-sugar  crop of the United Stales. Taken  altogether, therefore, the ratification of  the treaty by the Senate to-day -docs  not materially advance the cause of reciprocity, and it is not surprising that  the beet-sugar men are correspondingly jubilant and declare they have won  a signal victory over the President and  his   policy.  It may also be added that Britain  and several of the European nations  will, if they have not already officially done so, protest -against the treaty  because of tlie'prcfcrcnce given to lhe  United States, and 1hc knowledge of  this no doubt inspired the accompanying cartoon. It is also a pleasure to  note that many papers in thc United  States did not lose sight of the fact  that the honor of their counry was  at stake, and they' have-not failed  to protest against the delay in passing  the treaty,, and against the changes  made upon which Cuba was not consulted.

Mr. Bryce, M.P., spoke recently before members of the Irish Literary Society ou "The Hill of t.ira." Tara, he  said, for three hundred years had remained the centre and* heart of the  Irish monarchy, or what was understood as a monarchy. It was the  scene of the triennial assemblies, like  .those"at Delphi, where thc poets sang.  the lawyers argued, and the harpists  harped, and also, as the poets had described, where everyone drank all thc  week. (Laughter.) Tara was abou*  tweiity-two *>miles northwest of Dublin, in County Meath. The top of the  hill was nearly 500 feet above sea level,  and is raised about 200 feet above the  surrounding country. Although there  were places of interest to antiquarians,  such as Stonekenge, Avebury, Penrith, awl Orkney, which had a history  later than that of Tara, there were no  data concerning them. They knew  more about Tara, for events of the  second century were clearly indicated..  Tara remained the centre of Irish  government down to 560 A.D. It was  recorded that St. Patrick visited there  in 433 A.D., and there succeeded in"  alienating the Gaelic people from their  Old belief. After that the place was  cursed by the priests, and finally abandoned. Tlie Kings of ' Ireland still,  however, retained the name of Tara in  their official designation.

Astley hesitated.  "Well, no, thev don't," said he. "But  I could explain."  Norma drew her ?iand away with a  sharply drawn 'breath.  "I'm in your way, in your way. You  don't know what to. do'with me, what  to do about me!" she cried, in a low  voice indeed, but witn great bitterness of  ���������oul.  Now this was indeed the truth, hut  Astley was much too kind-hearted to allow the statement to pass.  _"hc road seemed unspeakably dreary  lo Norma, who had m*\cr been in this  bleak north country before. As the carriage clattered through the streets of  BlackdiUo, a typical Lancashire town,  with rows of bare stone houses, aird  with a distant view or' ta.ll factory cliim-  neys in the background, she thought to  herself that it was not surprising that  the late Sir Hugh had preferred his  yacht and his London hotel to the dreary  spot where his home lay.  This feeling was intensified when they  had passed through the town, and were  driving along a straight, hedgelcss 'road  towards Darwen Haigh.

You have done  exactly the right thing, in every way."  Sho felt a shy delight in his approval,  but she said nothing. Almost iu siience  she walked beside lnrrr until they reached  the station, listening while he told her of  the difficulties he had had to contend  with among the servants and dependents  in his Lancashire home.  * When he got into the railway carriage, and held out his hand for "a last  " shake, she felt a keen sense of disappointment that he did not kiso her again,,  and went hack to her aunt's house half  miserable nt this omission, half happy because he had been so kind. -  She lived in a state of intense excitement the two days ihat passed before  Saturday came round; nnd when the  train steamed into thc station, and she  recognized Astley's face looking for her  . from one of the carriages; she felt a sud-  ���������den impulse of joy such as she never remembered to have experienced before.  Thc result, however, of this Sensation  was ihat she was more shy with him  than she had ever been before, and that  ehe was as constrained as a schoolgirl os  she sal in the opposite corner of the carriage, and felt quite glad that they were  not alone.  Conironled thus with a sudden difficulty in lire way of milking conversation  with her, Astley presently remarked t hat  he .had been followed home one -night  recently.  Beiore  he  could  finish  his  sentence,  Norma said quickly:  "I know: by a lady."  Astley stared in astonishment.  "I was going to sav /by a dog,'" said  he.   "What made yoii say that?"-   *  Norma grew very uncomfortable, as  she answered in a. low voice, telling him  the fancy ehe had had that he waa foi"  lowed before he left Oxford.  Greatly to her relief, he appeared altogether surprised, and at once assured  her that she must have been led away  by her fancy.  He, however, asked for a description  of the lady, which Norma gave as well  as she could. . But the result was that  he was more sure than ever that'her imagination had got the bettor of Irer, and  that the woman whom she had seen had  not been following him at all.  "If she had wanted to see me at the  hotel, as_you_supp^3ed,"__������aid_he,Jlwhyl  should your entrance have prevented lier  .coming back and asking for mc? And if  she had followed us to your aunt's  house, and then followed rne back, as you  describe, why shouldn't she have spoken  to me as soon as I was alone?"  Norma could not tell. She could only  say that she supposed she must have  been mistaken, und nothing more was  sadd about the circuinslnncc until tliey  reached the station nearest to Darwcn  Haigh, whore* they found a carriage waiting for them.  ;*������������������ As. she got in, Norma, uttered an! exclamation.  "What's the matter?*' asked Aslley.  Norma was looking at a ladylike woman, neatly dressed in black, who had  Just  walked  away from  the .bookstall  with a paper in her hand.  "That lady," said Norma in a low  voice "reminds ine of the one who came  into your hotel at Oxford, and whom I  fancied I saw following you."  "What?" asked Astley, with sudden  pallor.  "Oh, it's not tho same woman," explained Norma hastily. "But there's  something indefinable about her tliat reminds me of her."  Astley did not recover his color.  "A li.nev only," hr. said, with a slight  frown. "That's Mrs. Wliarles, the doe-  tor's wife."  Norma was sorry for the associations  she 'had inadvertently called up in his  i mind.    For she remembered  tliat Mrs.  Wirurles was t'he  si.sLer of the woman  whom Astley hnd murried, and who had  t treated him so ill.  "How dreary it all looks!" she said  with a shudder, after a glance out of the  CHAPTER VIII.  K , During the whole of the drive to Darwen Hnigh, Norma wns sijIToring sd terribly from nervous distress that she could  scarcely give reasonable attention to tho  remarks Astley made.

Astley, who'was little less gloomy than  she, shrugged his shoulders with a de  pressed little nod.  "And yet," he said, "tho country must  have been pretty enough at one time.  It's broken up; you get plenty of hilU  iind dales and streams. But, since cotton  took possession of the place there's a  blackness over it all, a sort of veil Ihat  dims the colors and slain**, the very sky."  "And the cottages���������they're so Imrd-  lookmg, and bare, and all exactly alike  And the people���������Ihey look rougher lh.ui  the people down in tlie south, don't  they?"  "They're a good sort, thou )���������. for till  thai," said Astley. "1 think ,fou*!l like  them when you know them. Al least J  hope you will."  Norma shot a frightened glance at  him. Did he mean that sho was to slay  at his Lancashire home? She dared not  ask a question about il, but sho felt thai  Aslley was quite as much perturbed as  she was herself. Ono other thing sue noticed too: he looked pale and fnligir-'d.  Afler a little hesitation, she s.iid shyly:  "Aren't you very tired?"  Aslley learrcd back in, his corner.  "Very," said he. "To tell you the  truth, I've felt tired out, thoroughly  knocked up and fit for nothing, ever si"c.-  poor old Ilugh died. You see it ali .came  upon me so suddenly, the wony and tin-  work, before 1 was quite myself afler  my illness."  "Yes, I see," murmured Norma in lhe  softest of soft voices.  She spoke so gently that Astley looked  at her and smiled. ,      %      ���������   ..  "You must be tired, too," said ho.  She shook'her head.   "I'm never tired.  Aunt says I'm as strong as a horse.".  Astley looked at the delicate features  and smiled.  "It's the last thing one would think of  you," he said. ��������� -    -  And*then there was silence again until  they readied'the lodjc.gales of Darwen  Haigh, arid drove through lhe long avenue of now lealless trees up ton big.  bare stone house, with life same gloomy  black film over it thnt Norma had .already remarked over t'he rows of cottages.  In the portico stood a disagreeable-  looking elderly servant, who hud beeir  butler there so long that he resented a  change of masters, if he did not look  upon himself a's master and upon Astley  ns a toloraled visitor. He had small  black side whiskers, and a long-sull'ering  expression of face. Norma' felt, the moment she saw him, tliat ho resented her  own coming, and was filled with suspicion regarding her.  She had the same impression when, on.  entering the great, bare, comfortless hall,  to whicli even a roaring lire in the hooded fireplace imparled little warmth, she  was met' by a curtseying housekeeper, a  3tout, I'cd-firecd woman of middle age, in  the inevitable black silk dress and massive gold brooch, who was presented to  her as "Mr_. Griffiths."  Mrs. Griffiths was condescending, ceremonious and stately: Lady Darwen (Norma started when Astley called her by  this name) was nervous, -frightened and'  almost humble. She tried not to move"  loo fast for her dignity when the ordeal  of presentation was over, and she was  ceremoniously inducted, nfter ascending  a wide-and draughty staircase, and#tra-  .versing-a-wider-arid-more draughty-corridor, info an cnoiinou3 bedroom, where a  frowning foirr-poslor, with mediaeval  hangings, seemed to scout thc idea of  sleep or repose.  liefusing all oilers of assistance from  the head housemaid,* who was as thin  and giuint as the housekeeper was a lout,  and quite ns forbidding-looking, Norma  sli'iit herself into the huge apartment,  arrd looked round herewith a shiver.  It seemed to her the biggest room sho  had ever been in, arid the most uninviting. The walls were,covered with dingy  old tapestry," which suggested lo Norma  nothing but nightmare; the furniture  was heavy, cumbrous and shabby, and  the window curtains and bed hangings,  though moro modern lluin the tapestry  on the walls, was sonrebre-lookirrg arrd  heavy, too. There was a fire.; in tho  grate, but it appeared to. Norma as if  most of the heat went up the old-fashioned chimney.  ��������� When she walked to the windows, of  which there were three, she found the  outlook as dispiriting as the inlook.  Bare fields, divided from the lawn of the  house by a patch of scrubby orchard,  stretched away to a river in the distance, which ran in a rocky bed, bounded  on the oilier side by a row of bleak hills.  1'lrero were factory chimneys within  light on cither hand, and there was the  heavy black smoke cloud over all.  Decidedly this was the most depressing  locality she 'had ever been in: and the  lupersensitive Norma wondered how  sire could ever have been so mad and  wicked as to contemplate self-destruction in the comfortable midlands, when  such awful places as the cotton towns  and their environs existed upon tho  earth!  Sire eat down in nn unwieldy armchair  almost in the middle of the room, and  stared around her in a sort of mental  torpor for nearly twenty minutes, at the  end of which time there came a sharp  knock at her door, and Astley's* cheerful  voice snug out from tho corridor outside:  "Arc you still up here? May I come  Int"  She jumped tip and rushed eagerly to  the door, and then suddenly checked "herself with her fingers upon the handle.  There she stood for a moment hesitating,  with a hot blush on her face, until the  handle was softly turned, and Astley's  face appeared peeping at her, with an  amused smile on it.  **I may come in, mayn't I?" he whispered.  She slunk away from the door to the  middle of the room without a word, nnd  Astley came in and threw himself into  the unwieldy arm-chair. She noticed  that he limped more than ever, and again  she was struck by the extreme pallor of  Iris face. The sight cured her self-consciousness, and she came quiekly up to  him.  "You're overtired," sho said anxiously.  "You'll bo ill again if you don't take  jnrc."  "That's just what I'm afraid of," panted he. "I do feel this rushing about after thc quiet time I had -of it at Oxford.  I've been thinking���������if I were tnken very  ill, what on earth would you do ?"  She sat down promptly in a littlo  chair, which was-near the one in which  he sat, and said, looking eamestlv in his  face. "What should I do? Why, stay here  and take cure of you, of course!"  His pale face grew a little less pale, as  he met her eyes.  "Would you ? That's nice of you. I've  been thinking about you, and feeling so  sorry for you, as often ns I've had a  shance of thinking ol anything since poor  Hugh died." " -���������* **"*'  . ������-'*..~������������s-*r������������wv*>*uf'  JTorma leaned forward'.������ little, and  said in a low voice:  "But you're not to think ahout me, at  least not to worry yourself. You don't  understand how '".I feel. There, I won't  say muoh now, because I don't want to  make you talk; but I must just say  this: I feel your kindness to me so deeply, I feel so grateful to you as the one  creature who's been good to me, really  "ood and kind, since my poor mother  died, that whatever were to happen to  me now.T should just take things quiet-  -ly, thankful for having had the ono experience of true goodness in tho world."  She spoke in a very low voice, putting  such strong constraint upon herself that  Iho nails of her clasped hands dug into'  her flesh. But thero was a passionate  thrill in'her voice which made her simple  words eloquent, and touched a sympathetic chord in Astley's heart.  He put out his hand and lard it firmly  on both hers.  "There's a good, good girl," said he.  "I'm glad we've had these few words together. So it's settled then, that you  slay up here, eh?"  Norma looked at him with the blood  ness, and with gentle hands, Normn di-ew*  his head on to lier shoulder, and whispered: "You mustn't go out again today." _  "I suppose not," answered he in a weak  voice.   "I'm (oo giddy nnd stupid."  "We must send for the doctor," said  she anxiously.  Astley lifted his head arid frowned.  "Wharlcs!" suid he. "I hate the  beast!"  "It can't be helped. He must como,"  said Norma firmly.  And then thero was a knock at the  door, and Martin, the head housemaid,  answered the summons Astley hud given.  She looked startled when she saw hor  master's white face and blue lips.'  He sprang up arrd staggered to tho  door tiying lo laugh. Norma ran wilh*  him, insisting that he should lean on  her. But he shook his head, and disengaged himself from her arm,, tcllitig hor  he was loo heavy a load for sueh a slender little creature as she wns.  "Here, Martin, lend rue your shoulder,'"  said he. "And you, Norma, go and have  a cup of tea, and don't look so frightened, child.   I'm all right, nil right."  With a reassuring nod to her, he went  away with Martin, leaving poor Norma  half crazy with grief and rnrsery.  "He won't let me help him! He won't  lean on my arm! He hasn't really forgiven nre���������and he never will!:" sobbed the  poor creature to herself as she -shut herself in her great, lonely room.  She sent herself for Dr: Wharlcs, and  when r!ir hnd seen him drive up in his  gig and had heard liim go upstairs to hia  patient, she w������Iked tip and down th*  wide corridor to meet him on his waj  T-OMTROL OF V/EEDS  rushing into her face. Then she looked  down again.  "If you wish," said she, in a low voice.  "I do" wish* it most emphatically. It's  tlie only thing to be done. People would  think it very odd of you if you were to  run away now, when they know I'm not  very well, wouldn't they?"  "Yes," whispered Norma, still with her  eyes down. There was a pause, and then  sho said: "You meant me to stay then,  when you asked me to come?"*  "Yes. But I wouldn't frighten you hy  telling you so till I'd got you up here,''  said he with a laugh. ''I'm afraid you  don't care for the place much now you've  come."   " <  "It isn't a very lively place," she suggested modestly.  "It isn't at all lively. It'3 precious  dull.   And 3-our room: do you like that?"  Norma hesitated.  "I-don't much like-the-dragons   and  grants on the waHls," she said humbly.  Astley alfec(ed horror.  "Not like our four-centurics-old tapestry!    The pride of the Haigh!" cried he.  "My dear child, for heaven's sake don't  let Mrs. Griffiths or Martin hear you say  so.   1 suppose you'll be grumbling about  our best bedstead next!"  ' Norma glanced at the cumbrous,piece  of furniture'in question.  "It's rather high," she said meekly.  "I've never seen one that you had to go  up steps to before!"  "Thai's the beauty of it," exclaimed  Astley. "People come miles to see the;  furniture in tin's room. It's tiie oldest  in" the count}'. They say it ought to be  put in a museum."  "I shouldn't much mind if it was!"  piped out Norma in a small voice, which,  set Astley laughing.  ^'You've no gratitude," said he. "I  said tills room wns to be prepared for  you,' bceause'.I thought you'd find it interesting, and because tlie view's better  than in the front of the house. There  you can see nothing but trees."  "Is it worse than this?" said Norma,  with intentional lugubriousness, because  she saw that she was amusing him.  He got up slowly and held on for a moment by the back of the chair.  "Much worse," laughed he "And now  111 let you have a liltle pence. I  thought, he added hurriedly, looking at  tire fire, "that I'd _bettcr_come-and-see  " how you were getting on, so���������so that nobody would think we weren't good  friends, you know."  "Oh, yes, yes," agreed Norma breathlessly, also looking nt thc fire.  "Haven't they brought you a cup of  tea?" said he, as ho limped across the  hearthrug to the bell. "Tell, them to  bring you one, and try to got warm."  "It's you who ough t to do that," sn id  Norma anxiously.   "You keep shivering.*'  "Yes, I always catch cold directly I  come   to   this    beastly    old  draughty  house."  '���������Won't���������won't you stay nnd have n  cup of tea with me?" said Norma difii-  .dcntly.  "Thanks, no, I mustn't. I've got to get  round to'Lord Wyersdale's to���������to explain things. It's just occurred to me  that, when I last saw Lacy Myfanwy"  ���������instinctively Norma drew herself up���������  "I said nothing'to���������to explain matters.  There was so much to say about poor  Hugh, you see," he went on apologetically, "that I���������well, I forgot it."  It was Norma's turn to hang on to a  chair.  In a stifled voice she began: "Doesn't  she know you���������I���������we���������"  "���������Er���������er���������no," said Astley awkward-  iy*  Norma was shaking like a leaf. This  Lady Myfanwy Scorton, the lily-fair lady,  whose voice! was so sweet and who rode  eo well to hounds, was already the object of her ardent jealousy. That Astley should be so anxious to visit her immediately after his arrival at once became a vivid sorrow. Astley paw tbat  she was perturbed," but he supposed it  was at his remissness in not having explained his position to thc neighbors  moro clearly.  As Norma turned away to the window,  he walked to the door. But she board a  shuffling, uncertain s<hind, and looked  round'just in time to fly across the room  and support him as he" stumbled into a  chair.: ���������*  With a face alight wilh fender kind;,  out.  When the door of the bedroom opened  at last, Norma looked at the doctor.-witli  a good deal of in' leat, to find out whal  it was in 'him which had so prejudiced  Astley. against him.  Dr. Wirarle3 was a: tall, dark, broad-  shouldered, fresh-colored man about thirty years of age, with black hair, blue  eyes, a silky long l.ioustache, and a smiling look of self-complacency on his features. H-a passed for the handsomest  man in that part of the county, and appeared to bo not unaware of tho fact.  He greeted Noima with a bow of tho  deepest respect,'rather more demonstratively thin a London man would have  done.  "Lady Darn-en?" sard he. "I'm very  happy to have the pleasure and honor  of making your acquaintance."  Norma shook hands with him,' understanding as she did so how his rather  swaggering provincial manner must grate  upon Astley, but not otherwise predisposed against the good-lookin" man.  "Tell me what you think. Is Sir Astley really ill?" she asked anxiously.  - "I wish I could say no, your ladyship.  But unfortunately it is true that he is  very feverish, and that ho must take the  greatest care of himself. I've ordered  him to bed at once; and I think he had  better not be left to-night without someone on the .watch. But he is rather  touchy on this point, and declines to be  treated as an invalid. You, however,  with your sex's tact, will, I doubt not,  overcome this difiiculty."  "I'll try," said- Norma, ns she accompanied the doctor .down the wide, bare-  looking marble siaiicaoe, whioh seemed  to strike cold to  the feet through the  ' thick pile carpet.  "I think I'll write him out) a prescription," said Dr. Wharlcs as they reached  the bottom stair.  - Norma reddened a little, not knowing  tho house, or in which direction to go  for a pen and ink. -The doctor understood.  "May we go into  the study  here?"  asked he, as he pointed to a door in the  hall.  Norma accompanied -him into a cosy  ^room, not  too   1 rge, and  dilleiing in  charade- from wi.at she had seerr of the  rest of the house.    The  furniture was  newer;   there vas more of it,' and the  room was filled with a man's mementoes.  "The   late  Sir Ilii'ih's  sanctum    this  was," said Dr. WhurTes, .13 he placed a  chair for Norma with elaborate politeness, and then proceeded  to write out  his prescription.  "I understand tha I" it was in Oxford  that Sir Astley had the good fortune to  meet you, Lady Darwen," said he, as) he  put down the pen.  Norma," who perceived under his manner "that he had something to say to  her, assented."  .1 have been there myself," said he.  "Lovely place. ,1 like the Midlands. My  own wife comes from there, from Leamington. You know, of course,, that Sir  Astley and I married eistei  ."  "Yes," said Norma rather coldly, not  caring to discuss the subject.  But she saw that the doctor, who was  no fool, had some object in persisting.  "���������Sir Astley hears nothing! from Leamington now,  I  suppose?"  he  went  on.  -t'Doesn't-oare-v,'hat.-beeomes"-of*-lhe"fumT  iiy, in fact?"  "I don't know,' really," said Norma  stiffly.  "He wouldn't receive any of the family  now, of course?*' said the doctor. "Even  if there were any discoveries or confessions to be made, I dare sny he would bo  in no hurry to'hear them?"  Norma rose to irer feet, trembling ant]  very pale.  "Kxplnin yourself, Dr. YV; lories," said  she in a steady voice, meeting him eye  to eye. . "Bo you mean that���������-his first  wife���������is not dead?"  She put the qucs'ion in a low v-oico,  and quile calmly. The doctor paused, before answering her. Then ehe looked  down.  "She is supposed lo be dead, Lady Darwen," snid he in a voice ns low as her  own.  "Do you suppose so?" snid she search-  ingly.  After a moment's.hesitation he looked  up-  "Your ladyship," said he. "Ihis i.s a  very delicate matter. Will you excuse  me if I don't answer at once?"  "X will take no excuses," said she.  ."You have said loo much or too little.  I mush have an answer-."  '  He paused a few moments longer, and  then said frankly:  "Your ladyship, it is true that I have  had doubts; but thej' are doubts only.  But if you wish it, I will go to Leamington myself, and make the doubts certainties one way or the other. Speak  the word: am I to go?"  '..*������������������ The room seemed to swim round Norma. She dared not answer. Holding fast  to the chair by which she was standing,  she-held out her hand as if to beg for  a minute's grace.  (To be Continued.)

The-"Weeds and their Destruction"  impresses me as not Judiciously treating the subject It starts with the assumption* that "weeds are the greatest  pests on the farm." Consider the effect on agriculture had we no plants to  grow but the few we wish to cultivate,  as grain or grass. Smaller and large*.  areas are continually being dropped  from tillage, and were we without  weeds, these areas would soon ba denuded and consigned to poverty and  desolation.  I prefer to assume that "every crea-  ture of God Is good," coupling with it  the tact of man's obligation "to dress  and to keep" his heritage. The plants  of our' woods and the natural meadows  have their appointed bounds. None aro  allowed to crowd out others; but  when the soli Is brought under tillage*  they disappear. The weeds of our cultivated lands have followed civilized  man around the world, and it were,  both reverential and philosophic to.  And in them not enemies, but friends.  I know not from what part, of oua  country the standard is taken for comparing American with European agriculture. Certainly not from the region  embracing southeastern Pennsylvania.  Here our general crops average twenty  bushels of wheat, fifty of corn and ono  and one-half tons of hay per acre. Favorable conditions extend these figures  to forty bushels of wheat, seventy of  corn and above two tons of hay. Potatoes and oats are more dependent  upon the season. When our field crops  fall below the above average, it Is seldom referable to weeds. We sometimes  see neglected gardens and truck  patches, but a corn field choked with  weeds is a very rare sight. The pro.  vailing plant to tako possession of our  /unoccupied grounds is the rag-weed���������  Ambrosia artemisiaefolia. This is so  tenacious that it would completely occupy our plowed land but for after  cultivation. The time to destroy it is  soon after tbe seeds have sprouted. A  .few strokes with a sharp, light harrow  effect this; no patented weeder is  needed,  .;��������� The cultivation with various harrows  .that destroy the weeds is only what is  needed to pulverize the soil; but I have  sometimes thought the young plants  of our hoed'crops would fail of sufficient culture did not the coming weeds  hurry on our action. Of course this  culture to be effective must have tho  favoring conditions of drying weather.  I can well unuerstand that when clouds  and rain are continuous at this time of  year the destruction of the weed? crop  must be a failure.  I suppose that nine-tenths of tho  total crop of weeds that infest our cultivated ground here is rag-weed. We  have several others of simualtaneous  growth, as chenopodfum, amarantn,  verbascum, datura, etc., but the time-.  Iy treatment outlined.above; suffices for  all'of them. A few docks, burdocks,  Canada thistles, horse nettles, etc., require special treatment And we have  the morning-glory, the abutilon and  others, that were left to produce seea"  in neglected ground, require years of  care to germinate and destroy thc last  of the crop of seeds in the soil. Daisies  and carrots would thrive here, but they  so readily yield to culture that we havo  only to put the ground in order and  seed lt well with ��������� grass to keep thorn  out of our pasture and bay.���������L.

Winter is a season of tho year when  birds do not incubate, honco they do  not lay eggs. The hori, though domesticated. Is not entirely exempt from  lier natural Instincts. She is prompted  to begin laying when the conditions for  raising her young are most favorablo,  and If she lay during tho winter season  .It* will be due to warmth,. systematic  management, and au a pproach to the  conditions of spring. If the hens aro  not now laying they will do so in  spring, as soon as the warm days begin, giving good results for their idleness ln winter. It may be mentioned,  also, that the long rest of winter  should prepare them for spring work,  and when they begin they should lay  persistently, .it is in winter, however,  when prices are high that eggs are desired, but it is well known that If old  hens moult late, or the pullets are not  hatched early, they will not lay before  winter approaches, and if they do not  begin early In winter, they do not, as  a rule, begin until early in spring.  brown appearance and crispness that i   ,  we want in fried things.

Tiiursd.vy, June 25, 1003.  DOMINION  DAY.  Before another, issue of the I_1.1t.Ai_i'>  is irr the hands of our readers Canadians, from one end of the Dominion  to the other, will celebrate the thirty-  sixth anniversary of confederation.  Aud for British Columbia it ccrLrrinly  will be nil occasion for thankfulness,  for from very small liegimiings our*  province has taken its place as one ol  the greatest in Canada with every  j*i'o_pect that, before another decade  has passed we will equal irot only in  wealth but also population the usually  termed "banner" province of Ontario.  British Columbia entered Confederation on llth July, 1S71 and in the  year 1S72 our imports were of tire  value of $1,700,352. In 1002, just 30  years afterwards, this sum had swollen  to $10,391,250, of which practically all  was for home consumption. The  amount of duty paid increased from  .$342,401 to S2,354,405.  Our population whicli by the census  of 1SS1 was 30,247 by that of 1901 bad  increased to 17S.059 and at the time of  "writing is probably 200,000. It is  interesting to note, also, the increasing maritime importance of our coast.  In 1876, the earliest year for which  statistics are available, the total registered tonnage entering and leaving  was 325.751 while last year it was  eight tiuies as much, viz., 2,372,50S.  Aud so in every branch of business  British Columbia has shown a steady  increase, checked  in  some cases for a  LIB-LABS.  fi rJTeTJy^ ex't eTrmlT-K-S es"l i ke" tlie's i 1 ver"  lead industry is at present? but always  recovering itself and stepping ahead  with renewed vigour whenever such  checKs were removed.  Such Iras been our material progress  and we are sure   that   in   intellectual  development tire advance of our   pro-  - ranee has been equally marked.     And  at this  tiirre 11   more   particular'cause  for   thankfulness     is   also   apparent.  The political clouds of   the   past   few-  years  have   been' effectively   cleared  away and thu   silver   lining of  stable  government, hailed with   delight   not  only here but all over  tire   Dominion,  has at last appeared.    In view of these  facts we can make the   coming   anniversary not only an occasion of thankfulness     for     past*     prosperity    arid  progress but also for publicly expressing the conviction that in   the   future  tbe Province   will  advance at even   a  more accelerated rate.  Tiro pious wishes of the Vancouver  "World" bnvo lately been many and  -sincere. It's latest hope of a Liheiul-  Ijiibonr combination is, however,  bound Lo die a born in'. All over Lhe  Province tire eyes of the working men  have been opened to tbe manipulations of tire GriL machine arrd tlreyaic  anxiously waiting Lire chance thai the  corrrirrg election will give Llreirr of  throwing over the Liberal politicians  who have falsely posed as friends of  Lire horny banded sons of toil. And  Lbey are taking Lhe right course. The  Secretary of State only lately termed  the demand for recognition of the  Typograpic.il union arr iinpetlinenee,  arrd Lhe so-called Alien Labour Act of  Sir "Wm. .iluloek Iras turned orrt a  howling farce.  The working men of tire Province  will also remember Lhe active part  taken by such prominent Liberals as  E. V. Bodwell and K. P. Davis in Lhe  prosecution of uniouists during recent  labor disputes. It was Hod well who  prosecrrted Estes and the members of  the Steamboatmen's Union in Victoria  while Davis'record is too well known  to require I'ecalling. in this vicinitv  tbey will not forget the Columbia  River Improvement* Bill, a measure  riesigued to lower tbe wages of all and  cut off entirely the employment of  many engaged in the lumbering industry. It is fathered by W. A.  Galliher and receives the active  support of Aulay Morrison. .Despite  Lire protests of Revelstoke City  Council it will undoubtedly pass.  The peculiar position of the L-'urier  Government iu relation to the trackmen's strike should also not he  forgotten. Just before it arose the  ^tliOrr"-rmlrdur=^__nr"-ndirrg ���������Act��������� wns  passed, placing tho initiation of prosecutions irr the the bands of the provincial authorities. That was all  light, but when the Committee went  to    Victor-ia   to   request,   such   prose-  against whose position of organizer  was recently passed by tbe Trades *.ind  Labour Council of that cily.  Orr Lhe ether band, tbe Conservative  party makes rro violent protestations  at election times which between  whiles are conspicious by thoir absence. It stands or falls by the  principles enunci'-itcd in its platform  of September last, aird asks only the  calm consideration ol" unionists arrd tbe  workers generally ns to whether such  platform is not Lhe best in Lhe interests of labour now before tbe  electors. And the Conservative party  docs not fear the result. The members of the present cabinet all have  records of unflinching adhesion lo the  best interests of the Province behind  them aird despite all outside influences  will make their motto in the future,  as irr Lire past., "For the good of the  people."  Since tbe above was in print we  find thai,, a.s we thought would he tbe  case, the Trades and Labour Council  of Vancouver have unanimously  decided against this most unholy  alliance with mis-called Liberalism,  and that if labor decides to take a.  hand in the present campaign it will  be on its own basis and not as tbe tail  of the party that has shown it_elf the  perpetrator of a lip serving confidence  game on those whose interests it was  supposed to corwer-ve. And tJ������-i_*  course will lie followed all over the  Province. "We view with rather unfavourable eyes tha present fetish  of class representation aa we do legislation of a similar character, but if tbe  working men wish to bave special  measures brought prominently Ix-fore  the public eye it will be much better  to bave them enrrnciated by genuine  representatives   of     labour   than   by  Grit���������politicians whose.._hopc'_ of_the  loaves and fishes makes them pose as  working men's friends before election  which position is afterwards changed  to that of cringing myrmidons of  those corporations, such as tbe Crow's  LEGAL  j* E M-uSTRK .6 SCOTT.

Charles  K.  .l'tnnds, a very  clever  wriciipoudent of        The London  Daily       .Mail,       who served       that  paper in tire campaigns in Cuba  md South Africa (getting a bad  wound at the relief of Mafeking), is in  the United Slates writing a series of  impressions of the life and conditions of  our neighbors. Here is the commencement of one sketch, ".Xew York (.iocs  Uonio."  "It's no u^o dogmatizing," I was saying oi:<: ufliTnoon ns we eauie round tho  corner into Park How, "let us just try  and think this thing out calmly and���������"  I was going lo say ���������'rationally," but  I did not have time. 1 was caught  suddenly in a rush of humanity whicli  snatched mc from my friend's side and  swept nro with it along the pavement  as helpless of resistance as a leaf on  the surfaco of a mountain torrent. Fortunately, a few yards along was the  ollice of Tiie New York livening Journal, whoso sixty-eighth edition wns just  tumult nously issuing. This rrrndn crosscurrents and eddies, ono of which bore,  mc near enough lo the bank to he ablo  lo clutch hold of an iron railing and  drag myself exhausted but alive to  safety.  "What are you in such a hurry to  go to Brooklyn for 1" my friend asked,   when  1  got   back  to'him.  "Where's the fire t" .1 gasped,  winit is il V Live wires ? What  they  all   running   for ������"  ".Illuming !" ne said, "they are  running. They are just going quietly  heme to Brooklyn, that's all. Hut. if  you get rrrixed up with that procession  you have to go with thorn. It often  -lappens. J knew a man who ciinic out  of his office to mail a letter to Brooklyn'. On the Way to thc posl.ollieo ho  got caught irr the rush, was swept into  a trolley car, with the letter still in  his hand, and by the time he had recovered his breath and his legs he found  himself over in Brooklyn, right at tho  door of the address on the envelope.  It's swift, very swift, about here at  this time, of day. You want to ho  nailed up in a barrel like the people  who try to shoot the rapids at Niagara  to live in  it."  It certainly was swift.  ".I wanted to show," she said, "that  woman is maligned, that brevity is quite  as much her atlribrrtc as it "is man's,  and so when he proposed I had to say,  'Yes.'"  "You might have said 'No,'" it was  siuraested.  "Not at all," she protested. "When  you say 'No' you have lo explain why  you say it, and tell how sorry you are,  and it would have spoiled everything."  ���������Chicago Post.  Fop Stookmen.  "or  aro  not  Work IIo-*.s(*!- iu Sxifintf*  Horses that have had a reasonable  amount of work to do through the winter are iu the best condition for tho  harder work of spring. But nn many  farms the number of horses employed in  the spring is very large, and the work,  for horses in thc winter very limited,  hence many horses must be put at work  when in a "soft" condition, due lo their  long rest; and ofieir it seems necessary  to put them at very hard work, wilh  long hours, at tho outset. This should  be avoided, if possible, since the winter  idle horse is more likely lo bo able to  do a grenlcr amount of work irr the aggregate during the season if it can be  gradually accustomed to the harAest  work, lint where this cannot be done,  tlio next best thing is good care, which  not only means ample food, but good  grooming���������which is always restful and  refreshing to a horse���������and well-lltting  collar and harness. This last is very  essential, since it is a preventive o1  galls that rimy entirely disqualify the  horse from work later'on. ln short, if  good judgment,' patience, kindness and  all around humane consideration for the  noble animal that is so vital to the success of the season's work nre practised  in thc beginning they will prove to he.  among the most profitable investments  of the year.���������Kami, Stock and Homo.  The   Princess'   View  of  It._o.lci..  An appreciation of Cecil Khodcs, written by thc Princess Eadiswill, was published by Mr. Stead in his Review of  Beviews in 1S99.

Wentwortlr of Mnrshalllon,  Iowa, is authority for saying that music  hath charms to soothe a cow's breast,  lie had a cow that was particularly vicious ut milking lime. At the Missouri  Hairy Convention he told how he managed her :���������  It was necessary to tie her in tho  stall while, his two hoys milked her.  Now, Mr. Wentworth's boys are good  singers, arrd cannot resist tho temptation  to indulge in song while at their work.  Ono day they started up "My. Old Kentucky Home" while milking "Betsy, and  were surprised to-.discover that thc cow  suddenly became docile. After thai  tl.ey found thai it was not nccessary  to tie her, and she would slatid patiently in the yard while the milking was  in progress so long us she lie-ird the  refrains of "Dixie." "Take Mis Back to  Old Virginny," aird other old melodies.  This inspired a man with a foreign accent to rise and give his testimony, "in  Switzerland,*' he said, "lhe man or  woman who can carol best always gets  the most pay. They milk the wildest  cows, and they always stand quiet. I  think singing is good."

A View of Ireland's Ills  A correspondent sends some views on  the ills of Ireland, ��������� prefaced by an explanation that in the optimism  of his youth he hopefully accepted tbe  view that home rule would be a suro  cure. "A littlo more knowledge," he  writes, "has afnended ray. views. I  havo been particularly strirck by the  bcok 'Anglo-Saxon Superiority,' which  to me is a remarkable production for* x  Frenchman. Shortly, the theory of tbo  author, who is a most eminent social  scientist, is that the success of thc  Anglo-Saxon race is due lc> ils 'particularistic forma lion,' which lie ex plains to  mean that the individual relies for his  livelihood, not on the community or  group, or public social org������ni::a'lion,  but ou himself. M. I).*mi,>liiis seeks to  show thnt it is due to this individualism or sense of responsibility for one's  self that the Anglo-Saxon race has been  ablo to spread over and control so  much of (he newly-opened portions of  thc earth. Tho author has not taken  the next step, however, nnd has not explained that this individualistic formation not only involves the idea of responsibility for self, but also duty to  one's neighbor, to allow. ' m to work  out his own salvation, with which latter idea seems to be involved Mr. Ben*  ji'nrr'n Kidd's idea of "toleration," and  that broader liberty which he finds the  dominant idea at the present tinrc.  M.'Denuding contrasts with this individualistic formation the communistic  formation. The latter ho defines as  characterized by a tendency to rely not  on self, btit on the community or the  group, family, tribe, elan, public powers,  etc. He .particularizes tiro populations  of the Kast ns the most striking representatives of this type, but the object  of his work is to tea'eli his own country,  men that they, too, are of this class, and  nre falling behind for this reason. He  slates that tho whole aim of education  in France is to fit youths to hold public offices, to rely orr the community for  their maintenance, so that once they  have entered the public service Uiey  arc able to* .forecast . every important  step in their liv-'s except the date of  death. M. Demi litis'also refers to the  family control which is exercised over  children, and even grown men. giving as  one example tire French custom requiring parents to furnish dowries on  the marriage oil her of a son or daughter-.  M. Dcmolius finds lira I this communistic idea governs all Celtic races,  a survival of their tribal or clan organization. "Owing lo llieir traditional  elan organization they show more taste  for public than for private life, for  political than for agricultural, industrial  or commercial struggles. Tn the Anglo-  Saxon world thc Celtic populations mostly fill the liberal and political professions.  "Wc have evidence of this characteristic of the Irish race in om- own Province. When a public ollice becomes  vacant thero is frequently a demand  that it should be fined by an Irishman,  and the reason given is that if. is tho  'turn' of an Irishman to tret an ofi.ee.  Here surely is the communistic idea that  the individual hns a certain claim on  thc State for his maintenance, and  that the Irishmen are not geltir.^ their  share." .  31-   Demolins  writes:���������"The  constant  tendency of the Anglo-Saxon is to confine the" ppwrs that be In the maintenance of public nencc. without, which no  business  is possible.    The  tendency    in  communistic    societies    i*"..  on  I! ���������> contrary,  to   disturb  ns  much   ns  possible"  the public peace, in order to insure for  one's self or children, by the triumph of  one's    parly, some    rosy administrative  i sinecure,   since   the   idea   of   all   shrewd  ; people  is   understood   to  be to live   on  ' the budget.    There was no other reason  ' for    our severil    (French)  revolutions;  , there, is no oilier reason for the revoin-  | lions which  are  of   daily   occurrence  in*  ! Southern  America."  "See what has become of Southern  I America under Spanish and Portuguese.  \ rule, and behold the transformation of  , Northern America in the hands of tho  . Anglo-Saton. It is like night nnd day."  1 Whtn we look nt South America,  as suggesitd hy the author, we must  feel convinced that home rule is al least  ��������� not a sure cure for unrest among Celtic  races.     We   mav   admire   the     courag_.  ��������� fighting ability and energy s) mil in the  ! perpetual motion of tlieir revolutions,  ; but it does seem  that these upheavals  ��������� are chiefly due to a desire for ollice. in  i conformity with the communistic idea.

Mr. J.

With proper cooling facilities at tho  creameries, so that the churning, washing and working of U.e butter may be  carried out at sullicicntly low temperatures, thero is no difficulty in producing  a butter which is well within the limits  as regards the amount of water in it.

Tlie wearing of clothes should  come'as naturally to men as to women,  but it doesn't.

We notice the well-tailored  man on the street and in drawing-rooms,  and say to ourselves that, after all, it  is the tailor who does it.   The truth of  the matter is that, a, good modiste can  make a woman smart much easier than a  tailor can convert a stick into a possible-  looking man.   Men's clothes are of men's  Uvea a thing apart, and a man probably  doesn't feel any different if bis collar  buttons'are gold or celluloid.   But every  -inch of real lace that a girl attaches,to  her joyous duds affects her temperament,  the exact thinness of her batiste petticoats, the gold buckles on ber garters,  all mysteriously influence ber manner aa  she enters a room or steps from a cab,  and give her confidence in herself!   It ia  one of the most mysterious of sex attributes and there certainly must be a few  of the brain cells with baby ribbon run  through the bars in the head of a normal  woman.

The nr.ilcs, one by one, began  to go out quietly, nnd tbe women, an  they departed, regarded ono another with  scandalized eyes. But the minister  droned on, corning,back again and again  to his text, "Thou art weighed, and found  wanting," paying no heed lo his impolite  flock. Finally, though, four men aro.������o  together and started on tiptoe down lhe  aisle. This was a little more than tho  good minister could stand.

They have their freedom aa  eoon as they are strong enough to run  around. Little turkeys do much better  .with an old turkey.

It is the kidneys that are doing  their work. They need to he toned up  with Dodd's Kidney Pills. Why? Because they are heing overworked and  need help.  In the winter the body fortifies itself against cold. With the coming of  spring it throws oil this fortilicatien  which consists of extra tissue, and  additional waste matter is given to  the blood to carry away. If the Kidneys are in the condition to do extra  work this waste material is quickly  expelled from the body in the usual  way.  But if the Kidneys arc tired or  worn but the waste remains in the  blood and the circulation is clogged  The remedy is simple. Dodd's Kidney  Pills put the Kidneys in good working order.

Methodist Bi-Centenary  Two hundred years ago next Sunday, John Wesley, tbe father of  Jlethodism. first saw the light. He  was born at the little village of  Epworth, Lincolnshire, on June 28th,  1703, (.lime 17, old style). His father,  after whom he was named, was the  i!ector-of^thi^������hurch=afc=-f-pwr>rtb-=and=  his mother^ the daughter of , Dr'.  Samuel Anrresley, the " St. Paul of  nonconformity." At the early age of  a years the coming great divine narrowly escaped death by fire, the parsonage being burned to the ground.:  Methodism was practically born on  May 21. 1738, when Wesley went unwillingly toagospel meetingrn Alders-  gate street, London, led by a Lutheran  missionary. From that time on until  bis death on Miirch-2. 1701, Wewley  preached to ever increasing'audiences.  Refused Episcopal pulpits he spoke in  the open air and travelled, in tbe  course of his 'ministry, over a quarter  million miles; At his death the Methodists numbered 700 itinerants, 2000  local breacher-s and 214,000 members.  In 1901 there were 42,229 ministers and  8,201,250 members and .probationers.:  Iteckoning all adherents the Methodists on this continent now number  about 18,000,000. Tire Epworth League,  named after 'Wesley's birthplace, is  also a most powerful factor for good  and in many other directions the edi-.  fice of which John Wesley planted the  cornerstone has' flourished like the  green bay tree.
