Jenkins Lloyd .lories, Minister of  All Souls' Church,. Chicago.  Worship the Lord in the beauty of holl-  tiesa.���������Psalms,   xxlx.,   *_.  Reverence is the crowning grace of  life. Worship is the universal solvent  that everywhere disintegrates thc rock  ���������ot bigotry. Reverence makes melodious the iron bars of creed. On tire  (horizon line of human ignorance, on  tjlie mountain peaks of human aspiration, in the deep valleys of humiliation,  In the lonely dc-drcs of tire heart, there  ��������� re no sects, partisans, denominational  antagonisms or race prejudices, and  these are the places where worship becomes inevitable and prayer spontaneous.  Whatever we mny think of prayers,  however we may regard the formal  words of ritual, wo mujt all believe in  prayer, for Adoration in the presence  of the Adorable is inevitable to spirit.  Gratitude, admiration, the hunger fpr  ���������communion with tire pure, lire thirst  Jor companionship with the divine, represent thc soul ar its maximum everywhere. These constitute the prayer  which exalts the-heart that yields to its  law.  Prayer is the hunger pf the conscience fpr righteousness, the thirst of  the heart fpr love. When by thinking  we reach a sense pf thc Ineffable ; when  thought lands us at the feet pf the Un-  . thinkable ; when the Known is conscious pf the measureless rim of the  Unknpwable that surrounds it, this is  prayer, and in this realm wc are all  brothers.  "Worship the Lord in the beauty of  holiness.^ Holiness is wholeness. This  is one clement in the Pentecostal language. The life of the individual is  fractional. It comes to its wholeness  only in the community. There is moving power, culture, helpfulness in thc  pure notes of the soloist whose voice  {lives adequate expression to the  heart ; but mighty deeds arc inspired.,,  communities acquire added momentum, i  .-the city is defended and thc nation  is $  AFIERCE BATTLE.  0. FisTtit  to till.    Dentil net-"To en   Deer  Bntf  Cougar.  a. flgbt to the death between a deer  end a cousar was witnessed by two  hunters up in tho north fork of tlio  Kettle river, in the interior of British  Columbia.   "  The contcislants were a large buck  and a powerful cougar, aud John Soil  .".ml A. 13. Jonos, who were up in tho  country on a fortnight's shooting trip,  cay that it was a battle royal.  The attention of the chance onlookers was attracted tp the scene at tlio  moment when the cougar launched  himself upon the hue!; from tho limb  of a tree. Ho landed squarely upon  the, .shoulders pf tho buck tho force of  (ho leap almcet throwing the deer to  lhe ground. The bu<*k recovered himself almost instantly, however, and ths  h. '.tie began.  Tossing his head hack, tho brick  /.oiscd himself for a second and drove  two prong*, of his antlers Into the con-  Bar's body, then with a deft swing for-  yard threw his enemy tp tho ground.  Leaping backward, the head pf tho  herd, with lowered head, awaited a  second attack.  The hunters rail forward until tho7  (vcre within thirty feet o������ tho new  thoroughly enraged animals, but so intent wero the latter uppn settling their  fpud that they paid absolutely no attention to the intruders.  The buck had npt long to wait for a  /enowal of the contest, for with a roar  of pain and rage the cougar sprang  upon him. He was deftly caught upon  the antlers of the buck and hurled  high in the air. The moment the cougar struck the ground the buck waa  upon him, striking savagely with his  fore feet, which cut like knife blades,  and driving his atrtlers again and  again into his enemy. But the cougar  was no passive adversary. He tore  frantically at the deer with his great  claws until the buck had a great gaping wound  in his shoulder. -  .Finally they separated but only for a  second, for the cougar by this time,  blinded with blood and almost disemboweled, crawled forward for the final  death struggle. Game as waa the cou-.  gar, the odds were now wholly with  tho buck, and it did not take long to  For the Farmer.  The prize for the best ioo-acre farm '  or less in England was won by a  farmer who farms 81 acres of grass  land, 41 acres being in pasture. He  keeps 52 cows, and spent $3,000 extra  lor food for his stock each year.  Birds That Help.  Recent careful study   with reference  to the food habits of hawks and owls  carried on by the United    States Department of Agriculture goes to show  that these birds, with but few exceptions, arc the farmer's friends  rather  than his enemies.    It appears that thc  good  whicli  they  accomplish   in    the  way of destroying mice, gophers, rabbits and other small mammals,    along  with   great  quantities   of   noxious   insects, far exceeds    the possible harm  tliey do by the occasional destruction  of poultry and other birds.   A critical  examination pf the contents of about  2,700 stomachs of these birds showed  that    pnly six    of  the    seventy-three  species found in thc United States are  injurious.    Three   of      these  are    sp  rare that they need not be considered.  Of the remaining three, the fish hawk  is pnly indirectly injurious; hence but  two remain to be considered, viz., the  sharp-shinned   and    Cooper's    hawks.  Omitting    the six    species    that feed  largely    on    poultry and    game, 2,212  stomachs were examined, of which 56  per cent,  contained    mice  and    other  small mammals, 27 per    cent, insects,  and only 3 1-2 per cent, poultry and  game birds.

They arc hardy, good winter layers  of rich brown medium-sized eggs, and  are also the best of mothers when allowed to  incubate.  The chicks grow well and develop  rapidly under popular care. They are  great foragers when allowed to roam,  and small caters, considering their  size. .

There is an idol factory in Philadelphia that turns out a great many of the  idols used in India, Corea, Japan and  other Buddhist countries. The proprietor has recently been subjected to  very general criticism iu religious circles. In the course of an interview he  said :���������"I am not ashamed of my business."  He led thc way into a small room  that had a white curtain. Here a man  in a blue, cap was carving a Buddha p������  white marble.  "The Buddha pf white marble is pne  of pur more expensive gods," thc proprietor said. "This god, two feet in  height, costs $50."  lie pointed to a little wax Buddha  that stood upon a shelf.  "That is the model," he explained,  "which my man here follows. It is a  copy of a Siamese Buddha that has the  reputation of bcirrg the best image of  the god extant. But my man has made  so many Buddhas that he hardiy ever  looks at thc model now, 1 guess he  could carve a Buddha in the dark by  this time."  In a second room another man was  carving a strange god, a god with four  arms and an elephant's head, the Hindoo deity Ganesha.  "This is another expensive idol,"  said the proprietor. "Plain it costs  $50, and decorated $75. Two of my  girls are decorating a Ganesha now.  "Most of thc gods I make arc images of j-iiddha. Buddhism is an old  creed.

Hitch the horse or colt up in a  strong harness and cart, in a place  where he can have a straight run ot  a .mile or more,'or, better still, on a  race track, where he can run* a.s long  as he may please without having to  stop on account of the road..  Keep him as quiet as possible while  being hitched. When he is all ready,  and the driver is ip the seat, Ict him  go, leave the reitis loose and keep  still. Let .'liim run until he commences to want, to stop, then take up  the lines gently, and speak low and  kindly to bim to stop; he will at once  start faster. Loosen the lines again,  arrd waif unlil'he wants to stop. Again  repeat, taking, up the lirres gently and  telling him kindly to stop. This may  need to be repeated -several times  before he vyill; at last slop; but all  things must end, so he must at last  stop. When he does, get out and  pat and,caress him unlil he feels tlwt  .'what,he did was just what you wanted.  Jf, possible, unhitch him at once.  Repeat the treatment until the horse  docs not i-titi. at all.y You will find that  each* time the lesson will gel shorter  than the last. ;I have had young colts  run fast three, or four miles before  they would commence fo fag or lire,  and old ones that would hold oul for  15 or 20.miles;, In. the latter case I  would take the country, and try to  make turns so that I would at last  be, near the barn or stable.  Above all things, do not make the  horse go after he wants to stop.

The  Chili-Argentine    compact    may  yet   give  us   a   "romance   of    modern  warships,"  says The  Chronicle.      Tin  Chilian ships  now in the .market, and  the  purchase   of  which   is  said  to   be  under the consideration of our Admiralty,   are   the   Libertad  and   Constitu-  cion, and they cairy four ten-mch and  fourteen 7.5 guns.    They are excellently  armored,   and   sard   to be of high  speed   (nineteen  knots),   though   only  of some 11.S00 ions displacement.     On  paper,  therefore,  they  look .very  fine,  and many peoele want to see theni purchased.      Yerthc Admiralty hesitates.  The reasons for this hesitation are as  follows :���������Previous      purchases,      the  Neptune  from     Brazil,    tiie    Superb  Bclleisle and Orion from Turkey, th<;  Scorpion   and  Wivcrn   from   thc   late  Confederate States of America (U. S.  A.),   have  all   been ��������� unlucky.   . These  ships all failed to embody-certain minor   details   demanded   by  .the   Biilish  navy, and to modify them to suit this  cost a great deal of money, and when  modified very little  use was made o!  them.      In addition,  thc  guns of the  foreigners  are in    few cases    service  guns.     To take the ships wo.uld mean  introducing four new "marks" of guns,  and  a fifth that would be unusual for  a battleship.      Of course,    something  might be done before' the completion  of the vessels in the way of substituting service guns, but such changes on  designs do not usually result happily.  Were it done, the Chilian ships would  have their present ten-inch replaced b>  ithe-9.2���������a-weakcr-gun,_of_course._\-cry  possibly, also, six-inch guns would replace thc Chilian 7.s's.     In the Argentine ships, o.2*s and 7.5's would replace  their   ip-inch   and   8-inch.       A   third  point, and perhaps the salient one, is  that all  four ships have been designed for South American waters, where  smooth seas arc thc rule.     South American ships can. therefore, carry more  guns per ton of 'displacement than ships  constructed for world-use and stormier  seas.      Several nations are,  however,  possible     purchasers."    Japan,      Germany,    Russia,   Turkey   'and     Spain  having all been mentioned'. Were Japan  to buy we could see her purchase without   qualms ;   but   ft   i.s   quite  another  affair  with  the  other  nations.      Both  Sppin   and   Turkey  might  buy to  sell  again  lo  Germany or  Russia, and wc'  cannot afford to allow either of these  ' powers to purchase���������it would upset thc  balance too much. Thus wc arc forced  into   a   species   of   dog-in-the-manger  policy.      Wc  do  not  want  thc  ships  ourselves, but still less do we want any  other nation to'havc them.     We have  a sort of lien on the Chilian vessels,  and these, it may be taken Tor granted,  will end by belonging either to uf or  to Japan.     Thc latter is thc more likely, for the estimates for new warships  have been passed.     As for the Argcn-  !  tine vessels, neither wc nor Tapan are  likely to buy them, and all thc probabilities are that thc  Sultan of Turkey  buys  them���������his  private    purse    being  opened now and again for warships.

Surely it must be .the unknown, mysterious woman" who had taken him  away! * Wild -thoughts flew through  'Korma's brain, fancies,inconsistent with  firobability, with what she knew of Ast-  ey.   Her whole, being seemed to be absorbed in acute' consternation;  she felt  - that if this one staunch friend who had  done so much for her had deserted her,  she was desolate indeed.  . When she had got out of the crowd  and into the wide, open subuiban i-oads  with their rows of trim, .detached villas  , -    and spruce front gardens, she slackened  her steps a  little,  and  tried to  think.  Why   had  he  gone    without  a  word ?  Selfishly as she felt she had treated him,  it. yet seemed to her incredible that he  should choose to punish her like this, by  going away without a sign.  -That she would hear from 'him pres-  ���������ently she knew;.but the iact gave her  small  consolation.    Every  thought  she  ~ had had during the last few days had  'beenso entirely of Astley,,that this sudden breaking off of the odd, 'pleasant,*  piquant relations between them was a  grievous pang.

She  was so : much excited - that she turned  "out the gas instead of turning it up,  ud wasted precious minutes hunting  for matches and relighting it.  The letter was evidently written in  great haste,'and was headed:  "Four o'clock.  "My Dear Norma���������I'm afraid you, will  be awfully surprised when* I don't turn  up, but I have just had the most shocking news.

"This came whilo you were out, Norma," she'said.   "Is it���������"  The girl had snatched it from her  hand itnd torn it open. She read at a  glance the few words it contained, aud  uttered a low cry.  "What! What is it! Speak, child,  can't you speak ." cried Sirs. Ilivscot, as  sho tried in vain to get the paper out  of her niece's hand.  "Dead!" said Norma, with shaking  lips.    "He's deadl"  -   "What!     Your  husband?    Mr.   Darwen?"  "No, no. _His cousin���������Sir Hugh," faltered Norma, in a hoarse whisper.  It was Robert's thin voice; that piped  ������ut from the passage, where, he had  been, if not listening, at least hovering  conveniently near. "Why, then He's Sir  Astley now, and Norma's���������Lady Dar-  Brenl*'  But it waa something besides sadness  that she was feeling. She tried to think  that it was all distress on Astley's account, that she was only sorry he was  not free to console pretty Lady _ify-  fanwy by marrying her and giving her  -lie *.jusi.2oii Sim would have bad as his  cousin's wife. But in her heart of hearts  she knew that it'was jealousy she felt,  a most unwarrantable and small-minded  jealousy. She envied Lady Myfanwy his  comforting words and looks, and. his  admiration, too.  The rest of the letter had little interest for her; all her thoughts were now  centered in the girl who. was as "lovely  as a lily," the girl who, she told herself,  would presently have been Astley's wife  had it not been for his rashly chivalrous compact with herself.  She was half crazy with remorse and  distress that day, and at night she wrote  and posted this little sad letter in answer to his:  "Dear Astley���������This is the eighth letter I have begun, and the sorrow I feel  is greater than I can express. It is liko  you, in your constant unselfish kindness,  to have written to mc at all. I hope  that when you can you will let me sea  you again, that I may try to say what  I cannot write.   Yours,  "NORMA."  It gave her a moment's throb of  strange comfort to think that this letter from her would be in his hands within a few hours: she knew him too well  to think that'lie would ever be anything  but kind to her, badly as she felt she  had treated hiin.  What, what could she do to make  amends?  She heard nothing more until after the  funeral, when Astley sent a hurried line  xnat ne snould nave' to _go  vo  A cold shiver ran down Norma's frame  as sho heard these words. Yes, instead  of being the benefactress who was to  brine; to Astley the few hundreds a year  which would make lifo easier to him,  she Was the incubus who had fastened  upon him, spoilt his life, and tied him  forever to. a business partner ia whom  he had no interest but that of compassion, if not contempt!  As the galling, bitter thought camo  clearly into Norma's mind, her remorse,  her horror, her humiliation, her despair,  overwhelmed her and seemed to crush  her to the earth.  CHAPTER VTI.  "Come, oome, my dear, there's no need  for such grrief as this," said Mrs. Bascot,  aa her niece, with a white face and  trembling limbs, sank down upon a, chair.  "Of couise, it's proper for you to express some sorrow at the death of one  of your husband's relations; but, after  all, you never saw Sir Hugh, and nobody would expect you to show more  than conventional sympathy with the  family."  Norma looked up without hearing  enough to comprehend how widely different her thoughts were from those of  her aunt. jMrs. Baseot, of course, could  not understand why her niece should be  so genuinely affected 'by an event! which  gave her title, position and money; af-  - ter enduring a few more -of- these -and  similar reflections, Norma, suddenly perceiving that Robert ^had crept up'.to the  open door of tlie room, and* was looking  in upon'her and his ^mother'with eyes  full of interest and mild *" excitement,  sprang to her feet, -and, turning to'ier  aunt, said:  "Leave me a little while,. please. 1  .'���������want to think; ,Thsn I'll* come downstairs and���������and > talk," ��������� she ��������� added, perceiving, as she fancied, an air of resistance lit her aunt, -who was longing to  discuss the matter further.  So they left her,'-nnd Norma, after ,the  wildest^ and most futile attempt to. review her 'position and Astley's, and to  come to some decision as to -what course  to pursue, went downstairs to receive  more of those hateful veiled congratulations, and to listen to Robert's artless  prattle about Darwen Haigh, and the  jileasu're'in store for'himself when Norma should invite liim there on-a visit. ���������  She did not know whether to write  io Astley or not: but when, she got upstairs again she made half a dozen attempts at a letter which should exprc-3  her contrition at the,position in which  she had placed her too generous amd  .chivahous friend; husband she dared not  call him, even to heisclf.  Not one of those attempts, however.  got further than the fire;, and as she  saw the last spoilt sheet of paper our]  up, black and smoking, in the flames,  Norma .drew a long, shivering sigh, and  resolved to wait -events without giving  ^a sign.  The next day , passed without her  hearing from Astley: but on the following morning she got another letter, and  found herself blushing furiously aa Robert's little eyes fixed themselves upon  her. And she vv_s surprised to find how  fast her heart beat, and what a thrill  ehe felt at the sight aud the -touch of  4-he-letter.  fears of what news may meet mo. Good-  by. Yoii will forgive me for not coming to-day whon you hear what it is. I'll  wire or writo as soon as I get to the*  H..tah.   Yours, A. D."

She felt for him with all her  heart, AiTcutioniitc and kindly us he  was, she knew how real the emotion wnn  which spoke through every line of the  ���������rimply worded loLter, nnd Bhe prayed  that the n_ws he met might bo better  than he expected. Prayed! Av, and  with a fervor whicli was personal, too.  .And while sho still sat shivering, she  heard a voice outside her door, and her  aunt camo in.  "My dear Norma," it began. .  "I couldn't write last night after I  had sent off the wire. This is a terrible  business. In the midst of all the shock  and distress there are so many thing-  to see to, nnd such a lot of people 'to  see, who all expect me to give directions about things I know nothing whatever about.     '    *     ,  "And then there are the lawyers. I  have seen three already; one of theni,  poor Hugh's London lawyer, is a nice  old chap, who helps me to get through  all I have to do and explains things.  The others all want explaining to. Tnen  tho old servants are all dreadfully upset, and not unnaturally importunate  as to .their chances of staying on here,  and the place has been a good deal neglected, as Hugh spent so much of his:  time away, yachting or shooting, or in  London. . The old house seems bare and  cold and lonely; poor Hugh left the refurnishing of the place to be done by his  bride after they were married.  "And now I come to the worst thing  of all. Poor Lady Myfanwy (Scorton,  Lord Wyresdale's daughter, who was to  have married Hugh in a few days, is  half crazy. She tell fainting into my  arms when she first heard the truth,  and I couldn't console her, though I did  my best. ' It was horribly touching altogether. She is one of the loveliest  girls I have ever seen, as tall and fair  and graceful as a lily, and so gentle and  quiet in her manners, though I believe  she rides, to hounds as well as the best  of the men, and never wants a lead over  a fence. She was here again to-day,  looking sweeter and sadder than ever;  it cuts mo to the heart to have'to tail-  to her."  Norma put down tlio letter with a  sudden sharp pang) Robert stared at  her intently, with great interest.  "What's the matter?" he lisped out  gently.  "Nothing, nothing," said Norma, who  felt that she was choking. "IPs���������it's  very snd to rend about, you kuow."  London on the following day, and that  h** would break his journey by a couple  of hours at Oxford, in order to see her,  and "talk things over."  Ominous woids those to poor Norma,  who felt that she could scarcely dare to  meet his eyes.  He gave no indication of thc time at  ; which he would arrive in the town, from  which  fact  Norma concluded  that he  did not want her to meet him, and worried herself accordingly.  It was when she was sitting in the  drawing-room (that afternoon with hei  aunt and Robert, trying to answer tha  tatter's curious questions with good humor, that the door opened and Astley  walked in.  None of them had heard his ring, and  they all looked rather startled, the  more so as he was very pale, and looked  ill and worried.  Norma could not suppress a little cry  as ehe sprang up. She, too, was palo as  the dead: and as her great black eyes  met those of her husband, thero was in  them an expression of piteous, passionate pleading for forgiveness that would  have puzzled her aunt and Robert, if  both had not been too much interested  in the visitor to take nny notice of her.  Astley shook hands with Mrs. Bascot  and her. son, who pressed forward to  meet him, while Norma hung in the  background, shaking like a leaf, humble,  apologetic, wistful. He came towards  her,, and held out his band. Once more  her black eyes, luminous" with unshed  tears, were raised in plaintive entreaty  to his. He just held her hands for 'one  moment, himself' as white" as she, and  then, witlh a sudden] impulse, bent down  and kissed her .forehead.    .  She gave a'long,,shivering sigh of relief and gratitude, and then,' without a  word, sank into the nearest choir.    .  To Mrs. Bascot and Robert this affectionate greeting between 'Astley and  Norma seemed natural enough, and devoid of any peculiar significance. -Hus-  * band 'and wife met in new circumstances,  and both were affected and inclined,to  be silent. No inkling'of the strange  truth came into the mind of either Mrs.  Bascot or her son, as they chirped and  twitteied about their guest, receiving  him in a much more warm-hearted fashion than would have been the case if he  hod not come into" a baronetcy and a  fortune' since they had met him last.  But he was anxious to speak with  Norma alone, and he soon made the excuse of his journey to get away from the  'embarrassing attentions of his hostess.  "I've only an hour," said he, with a  glance at his watch.    "Will you come  with me as for as the station, Norma?"  She bow cd her head in shy assent, and  at once went to put on her hat.  When they went silently out) into the  street together, after Astley's,farewell to  the otheis, it was he who recovered his  self-possession first.    " ,  "Your aunt's very kind, but it was  rather embarrassing to me to be wondering, as I couldn't help doing, how she  would have received me if���������if, well, if  things hadn't turned out as they have  .done," said be gravely at last, ,  Norma drew a long breath.  "It was dreadful, dreadful," she whispered, a***, she kept pace with his slow,  Jn'nu steps, "to have to sit there and  li_ten_ tpjjieir twaddle, and to wonder I  when I should bavea, chance of speaking1  to you.   Oh, can you ever- forgive mel"  Astley laid his hand very gently, on her  arm.    The street was almost deserted;  it vvas a raw, bitter January afternoon;  they were almost as well able to converse as if they liud been miles in thc  country or shut up in a room.  "Forgive you! What for?" said be, in  his easy, half amused tone, thc very tone  she had sometimes reproached'him with,  when she wondered, whether he could  ever take anything seriously.  "I've spoilt your life," almost'moaned  Norma. "In my selfish wish to get free  myself I've put a chain upon you for  life. I didn't see what I was doing as I  see it now.   Oh, why did you let mo do  --"Re lifted ar'icar-staineu, miserable face  to' his.   Astley was touched.  "Even supposing I were to tell you to  stay on at your aunt's, and make yourself as charming to her as you can?";  said he, half playfully.  "Yes, yes, that or anything." .'���������  "Aud that I were to require you to  promise not to mope?"  "Yes, yes, I'll, do my best to keep my  promise, in any way.   But���������" she hesitated, and suddenly tried to withdraw  her hand.   Aslley would not suffer this, j  "But���������if I'm to stay on here," she went j  on quickly, after    a    short, breathless,  pause, "will you���������will you���������is it asking  too much���������will you come and see me  sometimes, just for a few minutes���������I'd  meet you at the station any timo, if you  didn't want to see them���������as you wero  Eossing tlirough between London and  ancashire?"  Her voice was broken and hoarse. Astley was inexpressibly touched.  "Why, how can you i__k such a thing?"  said he warmly. "Do you really think I  meant lo leave you all alone, to the tender mercies of the Baseots? No, no. Besides, have you considered what they  would think, if I went up to Lancashire,  and you stayed on here?"  Norma groaned.  "I haven't'-thought, of anything," she  murmured brokenly. "I've just���������worried!",  "Well, well, you're not to worry any  moie. What do you say���������" He paused,  and looked down at her, -still holding her  arm in his, "to coming up to Darwen  Haigh.witli me,,coming on with me when  I pass through on Saturday, eh?"  Norma trembled.  "I should like to," she whispered,  Xhen there waa a pause.  (To be Continued.)  A FEW SAYINGS.  Mainly About People;  Sir Richard Powell, the eminent'English physician, is noted for his frankness  in speaking his mind without regard to  the .social position of his patient. Once,  when ihe was called to prescribe for t'he  Duchess of Manchester, he ordered her  to disrobe. "But, Sir Richard, I haven't  my, maid here," she said; to which the  baronet retorted: "Madame, I have no  Intention of examining your maid."  Dean Fuertes of Uie College of Civil  Engineering at Cornell, who died recently, was frequently gruff, though he hod  bhe kindest of hearts. A recent graduate tells of going to the office of "Tho  Moge," as everyone called him, to see  whether he had been successful in an  astronomy examination. ''The Moge"  knew what he wanted, and the student  was greeted as follows: "Blank, I passed  you.   God forgive mel"  Talking of the late Augustin Daly,  Miss May Irwin, tihe well-known Canadian aotress, says: "One of flhc funniest  things to me was to havo the guv'nor  say, 'Well, I'll"show you,' and then come  up and do the aot.

A single man's ambition Is to get  married; a married man's ambition Is  to make the most of a poor job.  Man has his true affinity, but he never really finds it out until he Is married and can't hare It.

"I was  troubled with Kidney Disease for ..thirteen years. It developed into Sciatica  and located in my side so that I was  hardly able to walk, and could not  do without the aid of a cane. My back  was also affected and altogether I  was a cripple in the most painful  sense of the word.  "And the worst of it all was ,1  could get no relief. .Doctors and medicines failed to do me any good till I  was fortunate enough to'try Dodd's  Kidney Pills. The benefit was almost  miraculous.

"Whereas before I could hardly put  one foot to the ground, and I had to  use morphine to ease the pain, I was  enabled to go to work selling fruit  trees and walk all day without any  trouble."  Sciatica and kindred diseases are  caused by uric acid in tbe blood.

The intervention of Almighty  Providence on .lurre 18th 1S15. toppled  over jis it house of cards the blood  moulded edifice of Napoleonic supremacy and thus forever obscured  the light of one who rose from nn  unknown lieutenancy of artillery to  the dictatorship of the French nation.  ��������� As the lapse of time .dulls the enthusiasm of contemporary decisions it  each year becomes more apparent  that the actions of man on the eventful Sunday in question were more  than usually guided by the hand of  God and the British race entrusted  ���������with a responsibility that, to all  human appearances, seemed placed in  the hands of Napoleon. As the in-  fcpired prophecy that a descendant of  David should occupy a throne of thc  "world for ever is . proved true by the  present King, who traces his descent  directly from the ancient Jewish  monarch, it may be that in the hands  of our Imperial race is placed the  divine destiny of '"calling all people  unto Me."  clothes sold goes toward payment of  civic expenditure and those who pay  their share of taxation irr such forms  are entitled to as much consideration  as land owners who hand their annual  cheque to the city treasurer.  Such being the case an adequate  water supply should not be witheld  because it means a few mills per dollar  extra on the tax sheets. The city is  growing rapidly and the water supply  should come ahead of instead of  following the influx of-populatiori. If  the Mayor and Council do not,, take  immediate steps in the direction indicated they only,will be to blame  when the time cornes.as it must and  that very soon, when the- city will  suffer from an epidemic of contagious  diseases.  The City Council should not forget  that the life of John Smith, laborer,  and those of his wife and family nre  just as talliable to the' community as  those of Amador de Montmorency, 1  land owner,   and    the   scioirs   of   his  house, and although poor John's name [ .-.taVes "tliat' tiiV 'city has decided to  may not appear orr the tax roll it i.s j make, considt'i-ible repairs to the sys-  his hard earned wages Lhat,   pays   the!1*?.-1.1  "!'  the Brew.iry Creeks with pos  Brewery creeks was about 4.2 cubic  feet per'minute when combined. Tlie  water available in 1005 Bridge Creek  at the same time was about 23.5 cubic  feet pei' minute, in fact is quite u nice  stream of water,.mid as its course for  most bf the distance is tlirough burnt  timber the probability i.s that it will  tend to increase in volume rather than  decrease.  Suppose we put the population of  Revelstoke at 2,000 and allow the consumption of water in. thu city per  capita a.s high as 70 gallons per day,  that is to sav a total consumption of  110,000 gallons"for the 2*1 hours.  1005 Bridge Creek alone would supply at least 250,000gallons peril hours  at the very lowest stages of water.  Regarding distance: from a suitable  intake on 1005 Bridge Creek 1*0 Mu-  Ivunzie avenue it would be about /,200  feet, or about the same distance as the  present reservoir i.s from the same  place. By taking the water from this  creek and connecting it; with our present system the city would he amply  provided with water for, as things  look rrow, many years to come,  especially if the metre system were  adopted and of course a suitable reservoir for lire protection.

WATER RIGHTS.  mean  who  This term ia usually taken to  the rights obtained by those  record a certain number of inches of  "Water for mining, irrigation or other  purposes. But a far higher and more  important definition is the right of the  people of a city to   have   11   sufficient  ���������supply, of.-good��������� pure__water_ fur��������� all  purposes. And as regarding the first  tbe city of Kevelstoke has shown a  mistaken economy in not securing a  record of sufficient water to meet even  the   present  meagre supply    so   the  .second definition also applies now the  people find their water -'growing  smaller by degrees and beautifully  less." We understand the Mayor paid  his flrst visit to the waterworks the  other day and that bis examination of  conditions there will cause a revision  of the intended scheme of making  water and light pro/ito pay for maintaining and o|ieniiig thr* streets of the  city. If so; the latigue consequent  upon that long and painful journey  might well have been accompanied by  a sigh of relief that the municipal  authorities bad been" saved from  perpetrating a monstrous injustice..  A number of the City Council seem  to subscribe to the fallacy that those  only who contribute to tbe civic  revenue by direct taxation on land are  entitled to consideration when the  sources of civic revenue and its proper  expenditure ai-e discussed. They forget, because those of wbom we speak  do not vote at municipal elections,  that the large majority of people in  the city, although they do not pay  such direct taxation, indirectly contribute it all through generally little  thought of channels. Municipal  taxation is practically all met from the  profits'of merchants and others doing  iNisiness in the city and every resident  pays his share of such   levies   in   one  1 form or other.

Thu  present system would certainly stand  some repairs, but as regards the proposed construction on the creeks it is  absurd. In the first place the water is  certainly not forthcoming, and if they  could in some costly way manage to  procure another cubic foot or two of  water it would lie of very little use for  fire protection east of Government st.  With the pr-esent existing .-ystem of  mains, the 1 inch main east of Charles  st. would take nearly all the pressure  in friction head. Ton hear quite a,  few people saying that Right Mile  Creek should be brought to the city.  Considering the topography of the  country between the crei-k and the  city and the present population this is  ridiculous especially when we have  sufficient water close at hand if properly applied.

And  so  lt happened  ��������� that this fall "Bush" Gallagher had  r* \'hree "boarders" who were glad enough  -��������� . io pay ?2 a head for a week's comfort-.  f.ble shelter,  with  "yarns"  to  enliven  -the   long  nights   and   pointers   on   the  t      subtleties   of  successful  trolling  from  -ihe most renowned fisherman and ro-  ���������_ mancer of Wlntergreen Shoal.

Well,  In 1SE), as I wns sayln',  there was a  jtranger come down  the Center road,  ���������tne stormy October night, and turned  in at Pete McLean's.   Pete was a pretty well-to-do farmer, you mus' understand,  but not  too; well  liked   in   this  ���������Aere neighborhood, fer he was keen on  money  an'   always   got  ahead   o'   the  ether  feller in  a deal.    This stranger  ���������.���������wai 3.  shabby-lookin'  customer,   with  ���������.leedy clo'es, an' a hooked nose an' cur-  ^- hair an***beard. He had a big carpetbag bulgln' out with stuff, and he said  me -was a travelin* salesman  (I'd  call  Aim a peddler), an' expected to do business    with     the     settlers     in     these  H-parts.   He'give his name as Sol Nltler  -.-ar Xeedler, an' he -asked fer a night's  'Jodgin* an' breakfast at Pete McLean's.  Pete, bein' keen fer money I suppose.  .Bickered with him fer thc price an' took  trim In���������a mos* unheard-of thing fer a  "farmer ln them days to charge a stran-  jBer Ter a night's roostin' an' a slab o'  -������ow belly in the   mornin*.    But I dare-  m* Ihat stranger wouldn't eat pork aa*  had ter have fresh eggs, an' that may  be why Pete charged him, after all.  "Well,   Sol .Nitler   w.as   around   this ". known 'Bush'  as long as I :have "ye'll  ighborhocd fer  three  or four  days, [ put as much dependence in liis murder  One  of *Bush'   Gallagher's    yarns.  eh?" hd exclaimed.   "Well, when ye've  Dcoley on Athletics For Women.  neighbo  sellin' jewelry.''  "Selling jewelry?" exclaimed the IC.  C, in the incredulous tone of a barrister cross-examining a hostile witness.  "Tes, jewelry, that's what I said,"  went on "Bush." "P'rhaps you don't  know, Mr. Ketch, that you can sell  luxuries where you can't git the price  fer necessaries. But that's not in yer  law books, it's jest a law o_ human nature. Sol Nltler drove a thrlvin' trade,  an' every night, reg'lar as the hens  went to roost, he returned to Pete McLean's an' paid fer his bed an' breakfast. These fac's I wasn't seized of at  the time, bein' as I was down here on  the shoal, like most o' the men folk.  Pete McLean���������he wasn't .flshln' much  that fall.  "Sol Nitler engaged with Jim Gregory, who was goin' ter drive to the  railway, twenty miles away, ter call  fer him at McLean's an' take him  along. Pete didn't know of this, and  when Jim Gregory drives inter his  place in the mornin' bright an' early  an''asks fer the Jew, Pete vows Sol  ain't .there���������that he'd never came back  the night before. Jim says that's  strange. Pete allows it is strange, an'  talks kind o' confused like as if Jim's  suspicionln' him of some wrong-doing.  Of course Jim ain't doln" anything of  the kind, and drives off to the railway,  thlnkln' most likely Sol had took some  other chance.  "Nex' night, as I was sleepin' here In  ei makeshift balsam an' bark wigwam,  I woke up all of a start round about  midnight, and pretty soon I thinks 1  hears the 'tuck-tuck, tuck-tuck' of  steady rowln' out on the lake. 'Queer  time o' night,' thinks I, 'fer anyone to  be out ln a boat. Mischief's abroad,  someone Hftin' nets.' So I gets up an'  creeps out to* the beach. It wasn't  very dark. There was a moon, but it  was. behind a bank of cloud. I could  see a boat out about quarter of a mile  trom shore, and,,; by jimlny! come to  look, my boat was gone from the*  beach. My first idea was ter holler, at  the thieves, but on second thought I.  knowed It was better to sit tight and  wait developments.  "The boat was manoeuverin' round  out there fer some tlmo, an'then it puts  in fer shore again. As it draws near 1  crouches down in the^underbrush, and  pretty soon I sees there's two men In  the boat, an' hanged If they don't loolt  like���������well, never mind who they lookeo  like; that's part of my story. They  pushes in, very qulet-liko, nnd before  the bont can scrape lier snout on the  stones, out they steps as noiseless as*  jackra.bbits an' lifts her bodily���������slip  was just a little duck-boat���������up the  beach. 'They've got no fish, -that'.1*  sure,' says I to myself. Then they dive;-  through the bush, quick-footed as red  Injins,.takln' the direction of the settlement, an' leavln' me crouchln' heiv  like ���������*"*. fool, too serprised ter tell my  own name If I'd 'a' been asked sudden.  "I confides in the boys nex' day as  to what I'd seen, an' the yarn spreads  round nnd people is sayln' pretty soon  that so-an'-so is mean enough an'  graspln' enough ter lift nets, but they're  glad he got nothln' fer his pains. Bui  I knows In my heart it was .no net-  liftin' business, fer the only net in that  direction was mine, an' nex' mornin' ii  was fuller o' fish than Vd ever seen n  net before. But I keeps *__y counsel on  that p'int.  "Soon Jim Gregory comes back from  the railway an' brings word that Sol  Ni tier's not there nor been there, an'  Jim tells somebody what passed at McLean's that mornin' he drove off, an'  the story spreads, an' everybody  matches my. story with Jim's an'  makes a piece o' them, an' the fat's ln  the fire. The men of the settlement  meet at the blacksmith shop an'udis-  cuss the hull thing, pro an' con. an' a  deputation is sent up to Pete McLean's  With lhe as spokesman.  "We call's Pete out o' the barn an*' I  tells him, straight up and down, that  we don't want to make no charge nor  no trouble, but we think circumstances  calls fer explanation, and If he knows  anything of the whereabouts ������of Sol  Nitler he'd better say where or suffer  the consequences. Peter McLean turns  red an' then white, an' swears an'  curses, tellin' us he don't know nothin'  o' the Jew, an' we can go to all kinds  o' places, if we like, fer any further information: an' he winds up by savin'  my yarn about the boat is a infernal  'le, which he'd make me prove it. An*  ne calls on his son Martin" to back him  up.  "I keeps my head an' says that's all  very well, but "Meantime, Mr. McLean,'  I says, 'we're goin' ter search the  woods an' fields round your house to  the last rod, an' we're goin' ter drag  the lake, and to-morrow we'll send ter  dependenc  storie3 as in his fish yarns, an' that's  not sayin' much."  Of course "Bush" was taxed with deception at ths evening camp-fire. Not  the ghost of a smile or of a blush  haunted his countenance. "Tou suspl-  cloned my veracity when I was tellin'  gospel truth, an" yet you wanted entertainment, an' you got it, didn't  you?'/ This was the only explanation  he deigned.  "Bight you are, 'Bush,'" said Mr.  Ketch, K.C. "Still, you might have  added, as a sort of postscript, you know,  that there never was a Sol Nitler; that  Peter McLean died here in bed ten  years ago; that 'his son (still residing  in this township) is called McAlplne,  not Martin; that there was no railway  in this section of the country ia 1869,  and finally that you were not here then  yourself ��������� all which I myself have  quietly gathered from your own lips  to-day, Independently of the discovery  of the Doctor and 'the Kid.* "   ���������  "Had you been educated at college,  'Bush,' you'd be one of the distinguished  historical novelists of the day," added  "the Kid."  "Or, if you'd been trained in my profession," said the Doctor, "you'd be the  right kind of man to give expert medical testimony in the courts."

THE life of an orchid hunter combines In Itself all the most sensational features of exploration in  untrodden districts, often Infested  by ferocious beasts and by even more  savage natives, and in many cases  highly malarious and disease laden.  The rarer orchids are generally found  in the most Inaccessible spots, and In  the densest and most marshy jungleS.  Even the natives avoid the districts  Into which the intrepid orchid hunter  ,-,snetrates in search of his floral quarry.  R.

Last summer Doctor Berson, the German aeronaut, accompanied by Doctor  Suering, made a balloon ascent from <  Berlin, and attained tho enormous altitude of about 33,000 feet, or six ivnd a  quarter miles.

The postal savings bank building In  Amsterdam, Holland, is being constructed by the "Monler system," a  new method of construction. A steel  framework, like a bird-cage In appearance, Is enveloped In Portland cement,  which prevents the steel from rusting,  while the cement Itself Is rendered elastic. This construction is said to be  strong, fireproof and waterproof, and  to be growing In favor in Europe for  government buildings and factories.  The moment a man ceases to grow  he begins to diminish. Such'ls the conclusion at whicli a German physician  has arrived, after several months' careful study of the subject of "human  height. Men, so It is asserted, begin" to  grow smaller ln their thirty-fifth year,  and -women a little" before they are forty. Men, tiowever, stop growing when  they are thirty, and for five or six  years their stature remains stationary.  Then It decreases, at flrst very slowly,  but afterwards more rapidly.

Anecdotal.  As a preface to his attack upon the*  recent army appointments ln England,  Rudyard Kipling tells a story of a man  who Wfts carrying a bag, and of whom  a fellow-traveler asked what it was  that tho bag contained. "Mongooses, '  was the answer; "my brother sees  snakes, and I'm taking the mongooses  up to kill' them." "Hot your brother  doesn't see real snakes." "No; but  these aren't real mongooses."  .  Hans Jensen, a Dane, who appeared  before a Kansas Judge in order to take  out naturalization papers, very easily  demonstrated his fitness for the privilege.

The orchid  importer has always to be prepared for  heavy flosses.  Twenty - seven thousand valuable  plants were sent home on one occasion  ���������from Colombia by Mr. Roezl, and of  these only two survived the voyage.  They were sold tor 40 guineas each���������  not a high price when one considers  what they had cost.  Until the plant flowers its value Is  purely speculative. Its species Is in  most cases readily determined, but it  may present some variation which will  greatly enhance Its value. For example,  a certain orchid with a purple bloom  .-nay be worth about five shillings, but  an exa.mple of the same species with  white flowers will realize ������100 at auction. Tho value of a plant depends  upon Its rarity and novelty even more  than upon Its beauty.  Many years ago an orchid, of quite  new and unknown species, arrived In  the packing In which some foreign  plants were sent home. No one knew  where It came from, and for a long  while It continued unique. Orchid  hunters sought everywhere for It, but  not till seventy years later was It  found.  Another orchid arrived in 1854 without any known place of origin, and,  notwithstanding persistent search, its  natlwo habitation has not been found  yet.

A court official with fear and trembling conveyed thin Intimation to her  late Majesty, who reluctantly yielded,  for Blg-Endlan and Little-Endian  questions came within the compass of  her brain, and she attached great importance to them. Mr. Jesse Grant  did not know that the smallest of the  court officials with whom he scorned  to dine took precedence of the grand  old Gladstone, and that without shocking any Englishman. The aristocratic  nobody who wailed on the Queen was  supposed to absorb some of her sacred  virtue. So far as precedence went,  the Prime Minister, who-was the representative of tho nation, was of Inferior standing. But I dare say this  did not matter to thp Grand Old Man.  I had some years ago one of her Majesty's Judges (Sir Henry Keating)  dining with me. Another guest was an  English Honorable, who might have  been. In regard to* age, his son. It  seemed , to me absurd that the place  of honor should not be given to the  Judge. To make thini?.i pleasant to  Wm, I consulted hlrn before the dinner came off on the subject of precedence.

R. W. H. DRUMMOND, the author of those'fascinating delineations of the habitants' life, underwent a novel experience at  Vancouver the other, day when  ho was entertained to dinner ln Chinatown.

It was held at* the Quang Fong Low  restaurant, in Dupont street. The front  of the restaurant was gaily lit with  lanterns in honor of the distinguished  guest. Eight others sat down with  Dr. Drurnmond at the round table,  whioh had been decorated In customary Chinese fashion. Tho array of preliminary sweetmeats having been sampled, the dinner proper began.

The  time came, however, when Sargent could  no longer answer the beck and call of  his teacher, for he was getting work of  his own to do, winch would not allow  him to leave his studio at a moment's  notice. One dajr, it is related, Duran  sent a 'hurry call for him, and when he  received a note sajrrrg that Sargent was  compelled to decline hia request, owing  to pressing woik, Duron was furious. A  Jew days later, tt friend, to whom he had  confided his anger at his reculcitiant pupil, asked him: "Well, how is it with Sargent? Have you made up? How is he?"  "Ah. nol" said Duran, and he looked sad,  and his shoulders went up; "how i*j it  with SaTgent? Cost flni! (another shrug)  e'est flni I It's all over! I havo been To  tho Luxembourg.

None of  our generals before Kitchener ever attempted, still less succeeded in attempting, to wage war without oiders, without loinis, without state-, or papei-  ns>scrie of any t>ort or kind. . . .  Kitchener's ollice stationeiy consisted  of a sheaf of telegiapli-iorms which  ho earned in his helmet and u  pencil which lie cairnd in his pocket���������and that sufficed.

Power of a Great Telescope  The Lick Obscivatory has often'been  described, but a, notion of the power of  the great telescope there could scarcely  he more strikingly corivej-cd than in the  following extract from an article in thc  New York "Tribune:"'  "The great eye of the telescope, the  object glass at its uppei end, cast in  Pans, and made by Alvin CUrk"-*S_ Sons  in Rhode Islanjl, takmg seven hundred  days for its completion, and costing-$50,-  000, is thirty-si\ inches in dia.me.ler, and  gathers several thousand times as much  light as a human eye. In conjunction  with the highest ejepiece, it magnifies  twenty-six hundred -times, but such a  figure conveys to the mind ,no idea of  its real performance If two arc lights  of great brilliancy wore hung out on the  tower of New York Citj- Hall, across the  Continent three- thousand miles away  and weie placed ten feet apart, supposing  the curvatuie of tlie earth did not interfere with vision, the eye behind the  great telescope on Mount - * Hamilton,  looking across that vast space, would  pick tho lights out as two But if these  two lights, instead of being placed at  the distance of New York City, ware  hung out on our ncaiest outside planet  neighbor, Mars, thej' would have to be  not ten feet, hut twentj' miles apait to  be distinctly seen.  "Objects two handled yaids in diameter on the moon's surface can he easily  made out with this telescope, and buildings as.huge ai the Stanford Quadrangle,  or as high as the San Francisco City  Hall, would cause no trouble at all.  Structures like Brooklyn Brrdge or a  river _as jvrde_as_Niaghia__a.t_th������*__i'alls  would plainly appeal. But no buildings  of design or any other sign of former >ife  can bo found on the moon.

Does one come  apon such peas nowadays? Are tho  Jieenish, brownish, skin cased balls that  ������re set before us from time to time,  bearing tihe tired flavor of years in their  hearts, are these peas? Or what have  thej* to do with the peas of memory?

Nordau and his crew, with their va-  ponngs about genius and degeneracy,  should read and ponder Dr. George M.  Gould's "Biographic Clinics " Dr Gould  makes no attempt to account for genius;  but he sets out to show how it may be  affected by apparently trivial phj'sieal  causes, and he supports his contention  by indisputable facts His novel theory  has to do with the acute phj'sieal anil  mental suffering that has pursued many  men of genius through life, often with  the most momentous effect on tlieir  work; and ho believes that in many oases  this suffering is due to eje-stroin���������the  prolonged effort of accommodation of  defective eyes. Dr. Gould studies tho  lives of De Quincey, Corlyle, Darwin,  Hu.xley and Browning clinically, grouping all the procurable d_,ta and piesent-  ing his conclusions with convincing logic.

As an  illustration   of   the   exceedingly   clever  weaving/of these rug3 it is a fact that in  a loyal Persian rug of the fifteenth centuiy, also shown at the Marquand sale,  there were six hundred hand-tied knots  to the square nidi.

A resident of Baltimore ow ncd a farm  situated at some distance from the* city,  of which he was veiy proud But tl -lard  was rocky, nnd the owner bt-cr-no  anxious to get nd of some of the boulders The Baltimore '"Sun" tells how he  decided to accomplish this woik, and  Vouches for the stoiy as being "absolutely true in every detail." The gentleman  had a resouiceful workman on the place  who suggested the use of dynamite.  "Don't like to fool with the stull," waa  Iho reply.   "Too dangeious"  "Oh, that's all right," said tihe farmhand, cheerfully. "Theic'b no danger if  you go about it right. I've used it many  I tune, and haven't been blown up yet.  if you'll pay for it I'll get it and blow  nut tho rocks."  Tho owner of the farm agreed, no  rave the lured man the money and a  long and elaborate lecture about being  awful, and then sent him to Baltimore.  [Ie hod some misgivings, but his state of  nuiid was bliss compared to what it  would have been had he known tho  truth.  The- hired man is conscientious. His  motto is ever "Dutj* before pleasure,"  although he usually adds, "but plenty of  Pleasure after you've done the duty." Ho  od no sooner got to town than* he mado  directly for a place where dynamite is  sold. He bought generously, for there  were m$.ny and large rocks He also  purchased a lot of fuse and some percussion-cans. Tliat was the duty. Next  came tne pleasure.  The package of concentrated annihilation was not a large one, and could he  carried under the arm very easily. That  Is the way the hired man did carry it. It  was a beautiful day, and he determined  to make the most of it. First he strolled  along the crowded streets Had anyone  knocked the package out of his grasp,  the newspapers would have had "scare-  heads" the next morning; and the 'hired  man would not havo read them.  Next, tihe man took a ride on a trolley  car, and deposited the package of dynamite under the seat. Tlie car bumped  along, but nothing happened.  He went to a restaurant for supper,  and deposited the bundle on the floor,  then placed his feet on it. Tlie restaurant is still intact.  Then tihe young man went to the theater, ho and destruction arm in arm, as it  were. His seat was in the gallery, and  he put the dynamite under the seat He  was one of the most enthusiastic spectators, and when the house rocked with  applause at the rescue of the heroine, he  stamped his feet and clapped Ins hands  with the best of them. Just why that  playhouse did not soar aloft on the  winds of the heavens can never be explained. That is one of the queer things  about dynamite. It will act in a certain  way ninety-nine times, and in a very  different way the hundicdth time.  When the play was over, the hired  man picked up his dynamite and hoai tied a train for 'homo. The next daj* he  blew up the rocks, and the dynamite was  just as good and just as lively as tho  best dyna.mite0ever manufactured.  *..^S  A FIew Heart  for You  means renewed he. 1th,   for on  tl e heart depends all health.

Savage Landor, in his latest  book of travel, c "Across Coveted  Lands," relates an amusing railway  incident ��������� that occuned in Russia  while he was on route to Persia. "Unable  to get at my towels packed in my legis-  tered baggage, and ignorant of the l!u_-  sian language," he says, "I enijuiied of a  polyglot fellow-passenger what wa. the  Russian word for towel, so that I could  ask the guard for one. 'PaJatiensi,' said  he, and I repeated 'Palaticnsi, paktiensi,  palatiensi,' so as to impiess the woid  well upon my memory. Having enjoj ed  a good wash ond^a shampoo, and diip-  ping" all over with" waTcr, I rang for tire  guard, and sure enough when the man  came I could not recollect the woi d. At  last it dawned upon me that it was  'Palatinski,' ajid 'Palatmski' I asked of  the guaid  ���������smiled graciously, and putting on a mod-  eat air, replied- 'Paikttinski mot, paruski  (I do not speak Latin, I speak only Rus  eian), and the more I repeated 'palatinski,' putting the inflection now on one  syllable, "then on the other, to make  him understand, the moie flattcied the  man seemed to be, and modestlj gave  tho same, answer.

How can  you expect a Russian railway-guard to  speak Latin? Look how incensed the  poor man is at being mistaken for a  Latin scholar! Ask lum for a palatien-  si, and he will run for a'towel' Tiro  man did run on the magic word being  pronounced, and duly returned with a  nice, clean palatiensi, which, however,  was"littlc"U8e"to-me7~ for I"had^by-tlns  time got dry hy the natural processes of  dripping evaporation."

She invested .*t*20 in a brood sow,  and with  her fathei's permission made  arrangements with the shepherd to caic  for the sow and the pigs    As theie was  an  abundance  of  skim  milk,  this  was  given her without cost, but all the gram  fed was charged for aL iiuuket prices.  Fiom this single investment she clcaicd  P00 Mrc flrst year, !j>200 thc second and  $.100 the third.    By this time tho stock  hnd bo inci eased m number as to outgrow its quaiteis, and was proving so  profitable that Di. Webb thought it advisable to buy her out.   So at the end of  the fourth jcar he took over the stock  at market prices, and gave her a check  for $700, which  rcpiesciitcd  the year's  profits.   Fiom this start the present pig-  gciy has been developed, which  is the  most profitable depaitment of the place.

The principal buildings arc situated a I. llu* junction of  Monliinick creek and**;Fish Biver, a  hundred yards or so west of the town-  site of Goldlields. The buildings  consist of a substantial log bunk-  house, about 1.5x15 feet with a kitchen  and dirrirrg l'ooin of about the same  size to the' rear. Ample stable and  other accommodations are found on  t lie river bank a short distance to the  right.  Tiie power house i.s a building of  2()x 10 I'eeL and has two dynamos installed, (10 ll. ]i.. 110 volts and 2."i h. p.,  ������������������������10 volts provided by (lie Hammond  Company of Portland. Oiegon. The'  water power for generating* the  electricity i.s obtained from Mcnhiiiick  creek, where the company have a  record of (1(111 inches, and the pipe line  starts a considerable distance above  on 100 ft. waterfall which leaps over a  rocky hi ult about 100 yards behind the  dynamos. All the buildings are lighted by electricity.' and there- is a  private telephone from (he oflice 'to  the mine entrance some 1.100 feet,  air ive. ^  Adjoining the power house i.s a fully  (���������"���������quipped blacksmith's shop and a  short distance further on a building  used as a supply store whci e extra  portions of machinery and all other  requirements of the mine are kept.  The largest building is f lie office and  laboratory, a two story frame structure  with quarters for the officials and a  draughting room on the upper floor.  The ofiice itself consists of two large  rooms, one for the manager and tlie  other for the balance of the. office  staff. Separating these from the  laboratory i.s a dark room for developing photograph? which, it. is intended,  will be used to keep the directors at  Hancock, -Mich., acquainted with conditions by oeulor demonstration.' The  laboratory consists of three rooms  used tor assaying, fin nace and weighing departments and is uquipped with  everything necessary for this department of the mine. The manager  makes frequent assays of the veins on  the properties of the company and for  this purpose has a good gasoline blast  furnace for cupelling purposes.  The larger of the dynamos is used  for the stamp mill and electric lighting while the smaller was installed for  running two Durkee electric^ drills  which were started on the new "vein  above the mill on 10th instant. The  stamp mill is of the usual pattern the  ore being .carried to the top fiom  whence it passes thrjiigh* the crusher  and tlience to a hopper to feed the  stamps. The latter works automatically and opens and'doses as. the  crushed rock is carried on the plates.  Tha stamps are in two groups" of five,  only ten being used at present, but the  mill is large enough to'hold twenty  and the foundation for another set i.s  already in place. The tables aro of  the Vanner type and have worked  very satisfactorily during tlie three  tost runs so far made. Up to the  present the tailings have not been  saved, being run just outside the mill,  but -preparations are' being made to  retain them with a view to concentration later on. Thc ore is carried from  tire present workings by a gravity  Hum way about a mile in length and  lhe angle is sufficient to make it self  running.  Of the mine itself there is not much  to say beyond the fact that the recent  bonaiv/a strike has heen crosscut and  proved permanent. The rock does  not retain the phenomenal richness  reported from the surface find some  weeks ago. but still is of a higher  grade llian the $21 ore which is the  average run of the mine. A new vein  has been located about 100 yards west  of the tram terminal and i.s being  actively developed. An unl'oi'tiinate  accident, resulting in the burning out  of the armature of the large dynamo,  lifts caused the .suspension of milling  operations until it can be re-wound at  the coast, but llu* interval is being  UH-'-d in blocking out and extracting  ore. of which, in the old workings  there is several month's supply m  sight:  The Manager, .Mr. Frank Blackwell,  is crrLlnisiastie over the property.  His recent work in following up the  veins has shown their permanency  and he believes that when Ihe miil  starts running it, will continue1 steadily  except when .shutdown for cleanups  or repairs. It may lie mentioned that  Ihe men employ.-d'at the old workings,  at .present about 21), have every  accomodation at the mine so that  they do not have to come down to' the  lower camp for anything connected  with their* work. The company is an  instance, of commercial co-operation  the miners being at liberty to receive  a large portion of their wages in  stock. They show their faith in the  mine by taking advantage of this  offer which should be a sufficient  guarantee of the lichness of the  property.  Mayor and Aldermen Desultorily  *   Determine on Small Repairs���������  J. A Kirk's Recommendations  Laid Over  The City Council held a special  meeting oii Friday evening to discuss  question of adequate water supply,  then; being present the Mayor, Aids.  McLeod. Law. Foote and Supt. tior*  (lim. Immediately on convening the  council formed into committee of the  whole oh Fire, Water and Light witli  tlie Mayor in tiie chair.'  The Mayor stated he had been looking over the water works with ..Mr. J.  A. Kirk. P. L. S.. and Supt. Gordon,  the foriner of vvliiuu had submitted a  report. Mr. Kirk's report was read  which showed that (he present* dams  Were extremely leaky, that water  probably* escaped hy percolat ion between the place where the stream left,  bedrock and the point of iirtakearrd  lecommended carelul measurement to  ascertain this. He also recommended  the. lining of the present reservoir  and the construction of anotherhigher  'll'-  ' The subsequent informal   discussion  developed the fact Ihat, according fo  the "Mayor, the present reservoir is  leaking so badly, the water pouring  oul, iu all diieclions, that it cannot  become full. Being built ol" cedar the  wood is too soft to permit of caulking  and the cement lining has fallen away  through the action of frost. He al--o  stated that the repairing of the dams  was absolutely necessary us the lower  one will not hold water at all. To  build tlie suggested reservoir would  cost about ,$i*_0l>, and it would hold  about *I2,()00 gallons which, for fire  purpose--., would last 1 j hours using  two sets of hose.  Supt. Gordon, at the request of the  Mayor, gave his opinion as to conditions. He stated that all the water  in Long's creek could lit1 secured if  another dam were built though it was  a question that, even were this done,  there would be enough water in an  extremely dry season for domestic  purposes. A tank should certainly be  kept lull for use in the event of fires  and it could he so arranged that a  man could he sent up to turn the  water from it, the usual supply being  used in the interval.  After a lot of further discussion it  wa.s finally moved by Aid. Law and  carried "That thc present reservoir be  lined as suggested by Mr. Kirk and  the dams repaired at once; the question of other tank to be left over for  further consideration." The meeting  then adjourned.  The Heii.vld is having statistics and  other data, prepared regarding city  water supply present and available  and will take up tho matter fully next  issue. The City Council apparently  not appreciating the dangers of the  situation,it will he the duty of the  citizens to move when the tacts are  laid before them. If the Council at  it's regular meeting tomorrow does  not take up the matter thoroughly  the. citizens will bo forced,, in self-  defence* to-take independent action.

The Harbor Lumber Co's.  Camp Four, iir charge of R. J. Thompson, is now in full running order, and  putting iu logs at, a satisfactory rate.  The camp i.s opposite the 20 mile  hoard, near the centre of a line block  of timber, "nine miles in length. The.  loading place i.s at 2*1 mile board and it  is "Hob" Thompson's intention to load  eight-(Jars-a^lay-wlieli-tlufcam'p is"  working its full capacity. The camp  established afc 20 board i.s of a permanent looking character and appears  most comfortable. The buildings are  well constructed of dressed lumber and  present ,a good appearance from the  river that is not belied by a nearer  approach. The foreman in charge, 11.  J. Thompson, is one of" the best known  Revelstoke loggers and deservedly  popular with his "crew who, with but  few* exceptions,' look like a good lot of  woodsmen. There' are no less than  four fiddlers.in* the camp_, six vocalists  and Jack * Davis who gives humorous  recitations when he can be induced to  quit singing.  J. Merrick McGregor, P.L.S., of Victoria, is surveying the limit which  will he laid out in three berths. It is  estimated that there i.s three years  cutting in this bunch of timber.  R. Howson & Co.
