SPORTS AND PASTIMES  UNFORTUNATE  Another and Larger Rock Displacement Imminent���������On{ Advice of Premier Haultain the  Town again Deserted!  It appears that the unhappy town of  Frank is liable to be visited by another  slide of rock of even greater' dimensions than that which occurred on the  unhappy day, April 29th. Preliminary  observations apparently disclosed the  fact that further rockslides were not  to be feared, and the inhabitants who  hnd recovered from the terror of the  recent catastrophe were just beginning  to return on the advice of Premier  Haultain when, like a bolt from the  blue, came the awful intelligence that  another and more fearful displacement  of rock waa imminent.

There was a scratch lacrosse match  at the recreation grounds on Victoria  Day between teams captained by Dr.  Coghlan and A. E. Kincaid. It was a  good warming up for commencing the  season and a number of new players  turned out. A couple of juniors Earl  Pettipiecc and Percy Dunne have thu  makings of first class stick handlers  the former in the field, playing with  his head as well as his stick, and the  latter in goal making many pretty  stops. ^The teams, one man in the  home field short, lined up as follows:  CO-HUS'S        ' P0SIT10:< NINCAID'g  Dunne Goal McKenzie  Miller Point Kincaid  WALKEM, THE  WHITEWASHER  him Premier Haultain issued a proclamation stating the tacts of the cose,"  and advising that the town be at once  vacated. No sooner had the' warning  been posted than consternation spread  over the whole community. Those  who had returned five days before  with bright hopes that the gloom  which spread over ��������� the town would  gradually pass away were for a short  referee. Of the old players Graham,  Coghlan, Chambers, Edwards and  Sn-tythe showed up well, and if as is  expected one or two more good players  join' the team shortly Revelstoke  ^should have a cinch on the Fulton cup  this year. But the boys must practice.  New "Westminster has only achieved  its present-position by arduous work  and  Revelstoke   has  growing  up  a  time unable, to   grasp   the  situation,   bunch of youngsters that with encour-  but some of "the more timid made an  immediate start for the safe side of the  mountain leaving practically all they  had in the .world",behind them. Some  of the merchants, however, have  determined to let their stocks remain  ���������rather than incur tne damage consequent .upon another removal: "With  their families they have moved to  places of safety, leaving their goods in  charge "of the police who practically  hold' possession of the' town. Mo  business is being done, except at one  or two hotels, where a few, adventur  ous souls who insist on remaining are* al on Saturday, Vancouver  won from  catered for.' " v v:������*������_n .* +_ o  Messrs. McConnell  vestigations 'covered  $2 Per Year  and) Brock's* in-  a periodioi ten  days, during which time they ascertained that tlie westerly peak ot Turtle  mountain had moved at ���������> least1* six  inches. This peak is [a gigantic  agglomeration of limestone 01 even  greater extent than that' which overwhelmed the town on-,'the previous  occasion and as it overhangs the town  there is no doubt that its fall, which  may occur any day, will - devastate  what remains, of the unhappy'com-  munity. Independent observations by  the chief engineer of the coal company  have shown that the mass whose fall  is imminent has' separated from the  balance of the mountain. There is a  yawning chasm, about'three thousand  teet long and four feet wide between  it and the solid body, its depth not  being ascertainable, but is certainly  very great. The ground already swept  by the enormous masses of rock of the  tirst catastrophe is now comparatively  safe, as no further fall is considered  likely in that vicinity. Accordingly  there, is some talk" of mining being  resumed, but if so the miners' camps  will be situated some distance east of  the_track_of the flrst slide. __ This report cannot be "confirmed at the time  of writing but the source from which  it has been obtained renders it almost  authentic. Supt. Taylor of the C. P.  B. has taken up the question of removing the railroad depot, but after  careful* consideration does not think  this move necessary. He thinks that  the station is out of the district which  will be covered by the second slide  when it falls although there may be  some danger from flying boulders.  Messrs. McConnell and Brock have  returned to Ottawa where they will at  once report to the Federal authorities-  They were non-communicative whil_  agement will get in and play the game  to a finish.  The match *was won" by, Kincaid's  team four goals to two. f.Coghlan's  team taking their two in.the first half  and the winners four . in the second.  The scorers were:   ���������  Kincaid's���������1, Graham (5 mins); 2,  Graham (2 mins); 3, Ed wards (14 mins)  and 4, Graham (2 mins).  ���������t* Coghlan's*****-!, Boyd, bounce - from  ground (5 mins); 2, Chambers (15 mins),  " Tlie first lacrosse match for theB.

FOOTBAXJ_  Thej-e was also a scratch association  mutch between two Scotch teams, two  club players Smythe and Snider completing the number. - No names were  available so the crowd christened the  sides "Hot Scotch" and ,"Cold Scotch,"  and the former won 2 goals to 1. Football should be on, the up grade here  next fall as the new comers," though'  out of training, showed a good knowledge of the game. One of them,  whose name is believed to.be Adam,  played as a junior for Scotland in an  international game Scotland v. England.  TRAP AND TRIGGER.  The Gun* Club held its second shoot  of the season on Victoria Day, when,  considering the strong cross -wind  some very good scores were made.  The shoot was 20 birds, 5 traps, unknown angles, resulting as follows:���������  A. J. McDonell 15, J. Sturdy 15, Guy  Barber 14, C. R. Skene 14, Dr. Sutherland 10. Sturdy and McDonell shot  off the tie and the former won the  match. A scratch practice was held  afterwards. J  The details of the first shoot on the  lfltK^instanrhave^not*- yeirbeen'pub-  lished. The match was 25 birds, unknown angles with the following  scores:���������A. E. Phipps 20, McDonell  and Barber 18, Sturdy 15 and McRae  14.  The annual general meeting of the  Revelstoke Gun Club will be held this  evening at 8:30 o'clock at the Hotel  Revelstoke. All members are requested to attend.  The Rifle Association held its regular weekly shoot on Saturday and  although several applications have  been made for the scores they are not  obtainable.* ���������  His Report on the Curtis Commission a Travesty of Justice  ���������Dunsmuir the Whole Thing:  ���������Feeling in Victoria.  [bpbcij-L. correspondence.]  Victoria, May 25���������Now that people here have had time to digest Judge  Walkem's report as commissioner on '  the Smith Curtis charges,- even the  strongest supporters of Mr. Duns-  muir's government are astounded at  the course pursued by the Judge.  His peculiar point of view, that of  placing Mr. Dunsmuir's own evidence  as an answer to every objection is  most adversely criticised and the  statement that speeches of ministers  during the bye-election in this city  were not relevant has given Victoria  such a jolt that it will be hard for any  of Dunsmuir's old supporters to be  elected here.  In his report, speaking of the value  of the land, the Commissioner says:  "The land being at this time in its  wild state would, according to Mr.  Dunsmuir's evidence, above quoted, be  "worth nothing���������not ten cents an  acre," and hence be a valueless asset  to the , province. The implements!  part of the subsidy, namely, the-,cash  bonue, was not impeached. Consequently, the allegation that the subsidy, as a whole, was excessive has not  been proved. .It necessarily follows  that the charge of corruption made  against Mr* Dunsmuir, as well as that  made against his colleagues, as being  alleged parties to that corruption, has  not been established." '  '  Although it was proved up, to the  hilt' that Greenshielus was an officer in *  the paper company under the aegis of  Mackenzie & Mann that executed the  agreement when the land grant was  decided upon by the Government, and  also was acting for-the Government  at the same time. Judge Walkem  totally ��������� disregards this evidence and  states in his report; _��������� , '  '* With respect to the next charge,  namely, that the government im-,  properly employed Mr. Greenshields  as its legal adviser in the matter' of  the . railway- negotiations with the  company, * notwithstanding the fact,  which'they were aware of, that U.  was at the time acting in that capacity for the company, I need only say '  that the weight of evidence is against  it.".     -,'->'  , His calm elimination of all - the  statements made during the campaign  here which was fought out on the  Canadian Northern issue ��������� alone, is  unique in 'its impudence, and shows -*'  that the only idea in appointing 'him  Commissioner was to ��������� stifle all reference in the future to Dunsmuir's and  Ebert's speeches. I quote from the  report again: '  "Many newspaper articles and'  of the speeches made by ministers and  others, I held to be' irrevelant,  inasmuch as it was plainly my duty,  to be guided only by such evidence,  given one way or the other, as would  be admissable in a court' of justice,  when dealing with similar charges."  I understand tliat when the question of payment for services in connection with the commission come-  up in the House'there* will be an  animated debate.   _      _       **���������  Smith Curtis is determined ~to_havo~"  the facts considered as a whole before  some competent authority and will  probably move that the report be  expunged from the records of thc  House and the .whole matter fought  out again. Failing that, the Opposition will insist on all the evidence  being printed so that the public can  judge for themselves.  v -  Conservatives don't forget To-night ;1  i-~  VI \J  1^  RAI LW  ____sr_3  MKN'S   JOURNAL.

Mellet Committed for  Trial on Charge of Brutal  Assault on Jennie Kiaouhara  ���������Other .Police News.  On Saturday ��������� evening la-st, Alex..  Mellet was committed tor trial on a  charge of assault occasioning actual  bodily harm upon a Japanese woman  named Jennie Kiaouhara. Messrs. K.  ���������Gordon and W. E. McLaughlin wore  the'presiding justices, and G. ���������������-*'<--  Carter, city solicitor conducted the  pr'osecution. .,  The fracas occurred on the atternoon  of Monday, the llth instant, and troiii  the evidence adduced it appears that,  Mellet frightened the woman out o  her house and then ran after and  dragged hor back, kicking her with Inn  knee for a considerable distance up  Douglas street. Upon re-entering the  house she attempted Lo escape by the  garden aL the side, but prisonc-v pu let  her back again by lier hair and kicked  her while on tlio ground. Mr. r-eed-  Imiii, who lives in tire vicinity, remonstrated with him arrd was aWo knocked  down and kicked by the prisoner.  Tho medical testimony o Dr.  Graham went to show thai, when he  was called thc woman had both eyes  blacked, a blood swelling on her' lore-  head, a lacerated wound under tlie  lctt,oyo und numerous bruises all over  her limbs and body. She complained  trf an aching 8catj> and was m a slnto  of collapse. Passage of blood from the  intestines caused the physician t_  suspect internal injuries, " which aro  not yet apparent, but may develop  arry time within a couple of months.  Thomas Steed, Jesse Bradley and  others gave con(iriuatory testimony.  The hearing of various charges again.*>t  the prisoner occupied till midnight  and resulted in hit, being committed  for trial for assault orr the woman  and being fined $20 and costs or '.0  days for Hie attack on Mr. Needhani.  It appears this is not the tirst time  Mellet has been in trouble. About a  year ago he acted in a similar maniir-r  at Nakusp and only escaped arrest by  reason of the iniideniutle police protection there".  POLICE NEWS -  Corporal Thomas, of the N.W.M.P.,  Calgary, came to town on Friday and  left Sunday morning having under  arrest 1. Townley. who is charged  with theft at the prairie city.

VICTORIA, May 27, (10 p.m.)���������The Prior Government was defeated today after an exciting time in  the House, Wells and libc-rts being dismissed yesterday and Melnnes resigning this morning. The  Premier on the opening of the House made an explanation, lie said that after hearing the evidenc'u  produced before the Committee he had decided it was impossible owing to divergence of opinion in the  Cabinet to keep Eberts arrd Wells arrd had asked for' their resignation. He had a promise of dissolution  from Lieutenant-Governor.Joly and asked the House to pass necessary estimates and a few blllh first.  Kbevts and Wells defended themselves vigorously. Prentice scored Eberts arrd there was oonsiderable  dirty linen washed by ex-nieinber**, of the Cabinet. On a motion to adjourn the Government was defeated  .seventeen to fifteen, the opposition afterwards agreeing to meet tomorrow arrd let necessary estimates  1   through before dissolution.  Tho report of the Committee finds that the grant of the disputed blocks was a violation of tho Subsidy  Act: that Kberts advised these lands could bo granted under the Subsidy Act; that whilo Dunsnruir and  Prentice were willing Wells should try to get road from Midway to Spences bridge built, it -was not a  condition.for delivery of the grants. The Committee comments on the fact of the Railway Company  _ preparing descriptions of lands and bills, as Kbort's and Wells" departments had assumed no responsibility.  The Committee believes this bill 87 was drafted by the G.P.I.. and considers the coincidence of -formation  of the Pacific Coal Co. gives color- to the belief that it was formed to deal with the lands involved and also  shows .something in Montreal improper proppsals incident,.though the Committee does irot decidb on tiro  question of veracity betweon Wells and Taylor. The Committee approves final rescinding of the gran(sj  aird finds also that the Government allowed answers "not iir accordance villi fact to he given in thi? matter  to the Legislature last session, and that correspondence in the Department of Lands and Works controlled  ?     by Wells was withheld when asked for. ,     ' :  $/ts-*v-*B<V-*'/-V-*^^  ourne  B  ros.

C.  " News came to the city on Monday  of a phenomenal strike of auriferous  ore on thc Goldfinch claim at Gold-  fields, one of the properties" of the  Northwestern Development Syndicate.  _s is well known there is on this claim  an enormous vein of free-milling gold  quart/,, about a hundred 1'cet wide  and running straight across the properly. Development has been proceeded with lor some-considerable  time a"ud the recent teat runs of the  stamp mill, with the resulting , gold  bricks brought to this city, are Iresli  in Lhe minds oi I___sa_.D readers.

Thc surprising dis-  covervof last week was the result. A.s  soon "ns the -wesfcerlv contact was  reached aud the debris on the surface  removed tho miners were thunder-  siruck-with ruveiii-severaljnches wr*le_  of enormous richness right against tlio  hanging wall ol" schist, and extem.ing  into it. The manager was at once  called and saw that the richest strike  of free gold bearing ore ever heard of  in the Province ot British Columbia  had been made as the result ot his  investigations.  This wonderfully rich rock runs in  the neighborhood of $10,000 in gold to  the ton. It may appear an extraor-  dmarv statement to make, but the  Hek.Ci.i_ is not publishing a rumor  and has actually inspected a quantity  of the ore in question brought to town  bv Prank U. Freeman on Monday  evening, and who left on Tuesday  morning with about .-.0 pounds of the  samples for Hancock, Michigan, the  head office of the Northwestern Development Syndicate.  The gold is contained in a greenish  micaceous schist and the samples seen  had attached, on one side, particles of  the typical white quartz of the Fish  river" camp showing that they had  been extracted at the point of the  contact with the vein and country  rock. Nodules of gold, many of them  the size of a pinhead were studded  throughout the specimen and the end  fractures show that the same features  characterise the whole body and the  surface is no richer than the lower  faces. ,T  It is a plea-ant task for the Hkkai.1.  lo congratulate the members of the  Northwestern Development Syndicate  on their remarkable good fortune.  The company in question was one of  the first to operate in the Fish river  camp aird have shown their faith in it  bv continuing development work  where mnuv others would have ceased  operations." The difficulties surrounding tbe opening up of the mine and  the necessarv expense discouraged a  number of the original shareholders,  but those who bave stayed with the  camp arc bound to reap a rich harvest.  Kvervthing is now  ready   for   the ^  starting of the stamp mill at continu  ous work, and -probably- before this  issue reaches our -readers* the * slumps  will be poimding (fill gold from what  oromiscs to .be.^*.**.richest, mine of  ."irifcish" Columbia.'< The track, for-Oie  surface tramway from the mouth of  the tunnel at present worked***lo the  cable line has been completed and the  arrival of rails, now orr the way, is all  that is necessary to. complete , tho  equipment of the property. There is  two month's supply of ore' at the  moulh of the tunnel and'an unlimited  quantity iii sight, and'from now "on  Goldfields will bo a liaine 'to conjure  with in tho milling centres of North  America. From the old workings the  ore averages at least $20 in gold to tho  ton. and the present small, but complete, equipment should ensure a  monthly output, of about $18,000 in  gold, which, as development is pushed  and extra stamps provided will, before  the end of tho present , season, bo  largely increased. Meanwhile, prospecting will be actively continued to  fully disclose the extent of the recent  discovery.

It   Mae   Seen  ������*& Veure In  Croutng th*  Continent,  The founder, Thomas Joy, came over  from England aB a young, unmarried  man of twenty-five, with his fortune  to make, writes James Ft. Joy, la the  Cbautauquan. He settled ln Boston,  married the daughter of a bay pilot  and Indian trader, and begat sons and  daughters, whose births and baptisms  marriages and deaths, are written in  tbe records of the town and church,  and printed in the precious "Report of  the Boston Record Commissioners."  Four generations havo brought us  down to 1750, and the great-groat-  grandchlldren of the emigrant have uot  yet loft the tidewater region; it was  sot until the seventh generation that  the family hogan to spread abroad.  The fifth and sixth show slight wanderings from tho Seaboard Into the new  inland tiers of townBhipB, for which  lands were being granted to the older  settlers, aflor tho cossatlon of the  French nnd Indian wars in 17G3. In  the seventh generation New England  becomes too small. One man goes lo  Ohio and makes a fortune In~_arm Implements. Three brothers go to Morgan county, Illinois, fn 1838, to spy out  the land. Settling there with other  neighbors from New Hampshire, thev  create a little prairie colony of .New  England farmers, clustering about a  white Congregational _meeting house.  Their children and grandchildren have  crossed tho Mississippi and settled in  Colorado and -California as merchants  and professional men. Another man  of the seventh generation finds his life  work in Detroit. Still another of the  Salisbury families, after turning northward Into New Hampshire, and later  trying its fortune In Maine, goes to  Chicago in prosperity. The children  in the ninth generation from Thomas,  the emigrant, are now in their cradles  or ln school, and three out of every  four of them have been born beyond  the llmUs of Now England. It wns  not until 1880 that the first scion ot  this branch touched the Pacific coast  at San Francisco. The family had been  245 years In crossing the continent.

The derailment of trains on the  South Pacific Coast Railroad through  4;rack_jiimping^-W___h has_ been notably frequent of late, is attributed "by"  railroad employes to the excessive oscillation ot the locomotive and tender,  produced by a new method of breaking  joints In track laying, adopted as an  experiment on the narrow-guage lino.  - In ordinary track laying it is tho  custom to bring the rail joints on each  side of the track on the same tie. On  the South Pacific Coast Railroad the  joints alternate at the centre of Uin  opposite rail. As a result the jar received by the locomotive and tender in  passing "over each joint has thrown  them first one way, then the other, iho  regularity of the oscillation conforming with the length of the. rail and tho  reproduction of the joints.'and its violence augmenting with increased-.spend.  As a consequence, the motion of tho  locomotive under such conditions In  time swings thc tender and Itself clear  of the rails to Its own destruction.  So convinced has the railroad management become ot thc correctness ot  the theory of the roadmen that it h,t_  decided to abandon the now system nt  breaking joints and relay the track  on the old plan.���������San Francisco Cbroa-  lcle.  Tlie Woikiuu Were Uelishteil Willi Illia  at the Ar������ennl������-lle Shown Them How to  fc-t Then Siicoil and rccd tiearluit for tlie  Tool*.  Lord Charlea Beresforu, nwcuBshig  the openings In China for mechanical  engineers, gives an amusing description of Chinese forts and arsenals.  "1 would like," he says, "to tell you  one or two stories thoroughly characteristic of the Chinese. At Shanghai  in the superb arsenal under tho superintendence of Mr. Bunt aud Mr. Cornish, both British mechanical rnginvers,  I Baw an Armstrong gun which nad  had tho breech piece repaired in a most  clover manner. As a matter ot fact, it  was really a Krupp gun. but witb an  Armstrong breech mechanism. On  nsklng for explanations, 1 was told  thnt the original breech piece had boon  blown out, and on visiting a fort later  on I found out how and why. At this  fort I congratulated thc mandarin on  having the guns (IST-ton) mounted In  proper positions, and I was afterward  shown tho powder used. I then said:  'You surely do nbt use this powder In  thoso guns?' 'Oh, yes,' replied the  mandarin, 'we do.' 'But it will blow  the breech-pieces out.' 'Yes, It does,'  was the reply. One killed fourteen  men; and then they tried the other  gun and killed twenty-four men.  "Later on I visited another battery,  where there were five sixty-ton guns.  Observing thc arrangement ot these, I  asked the mandarin where his 'front'  was. The mandarin pointed in one  direction, but the suns pointed In an-  -.'lrcr. 1 mentioned thrs, and the mandarin nodded, and said he thought  thero waa s*.ome mistake. I then pointed out that oiily one gun could be fired  surely in ihe desired direction. Oh,  no,' replied the nutadarin, we should  fire them all.* At my request the ex-  poriii'-oui. was then made, aud on pointing the guns around as desired they  became en echelon, so that ths wave of  concussion oi one gun would havo  destroyed the dctichmcnt on duty at  its neighbor. KnowirF. this, I placed  soldier's hals and clothes ahout thc  guns, and on firing tho latter in succession those garments were blown  sky high. You Bee?' 1 observed to the  mandarin. 'Yes,' replied the latter, 'we  should have haif some men killed, but  the shot would have reached the enemy, wouldn't it?'  'At another place there was a CO-ton  muzzleloading gun, at which thc  arrangements were such that the gun  was actually loaded in the magazine.  A badly sponged gun or burning wad  might, therefore, have blown the whole  up. I pointed this out, remarking that  I had never seen anything so dangerous. The mandarin smiled, clapped  me on the back and said: You are tho  cleverest man I have ever met. That  is just what happened last year.  We did fire the gun and the magazine blew up. I will show you where.  About fifty men had heen killed in tnls  explosion, but no alteration had been  made In reconstructing the battery.  Later on I went to a powder mill and  found there excellent machines of German make. I noticed however, that  there was too much powder in the pan,  and, further, that the windows were all  open and protected by gratings. Hence  it was possible for dust or grit to blow  in, and, getting into the pan, it would  be liable, by the friction caused, to  start an explosion. I pointed this out  and the mandarin replied: Yes, it  blew up like that last year: this is the  new place we have built since.'  'The Chinese were also delighted  with me at other arsenals having co  European superintendent when I snowed them how to set their speed ana  feed gearing for the tools.  "In one place I found a man boring  ^ 6-pounder gun, and the tool protesting mo3t vigorously against the ill-  treatment. I showed 'he man how to  adjust it, and got it going properly.  The workmen gathered in a corner nnd  talked excitedly. I askpd wha* thev  wore saying and was to-id: 'They aie  saying that England produces the most  wonderful mandarins in the world.

Mind your own business is a good  rule to go by," said a veteran Westerner with an ugly scar between his  thumb and his index finger, and this  mark you seo on my hand keeps me in  mind ol it. I got it by not do ing that.  It happened in a faro room one night  ln a mining town. I was watching a  friend playing, and Justopposlte waa  a little fellow neither of us knew. My  friend had up a bet ot $20 which he  won and Just as he was ttbout to take  It, the little man reached out and got  It.  " 'That'B mine,' said my friend.  "It's mine,' unlil-tho littlo man, and  the trouble wfta raising when the lookout, with a gun across his lap, put in  to settle it. ~  " 'This Ib our business,' said mv  friend waving the look-out oK. 'Now,'  he went on. addressing tho little man.  'wo will just step outside and sue  whose it Is.'  "I thought I had seen a 'guerrilla,'  one of those chaps around a samo who  Ib watching to catch a sleeper, slip the  checks and* knowing that uomohody  would be killed If tho two men wtnt  outside, I put my hand on iny friend"!',  shoulder and anuouncod that tha guerrilla had pinched tho bet. Tire guerrilla promptly struck me ln the jaw and  I went over, but was right up again  and he came tor mo with a big knife.  I caught at his arm and got iho knife  which ripped my hand up. but I held  on until somebody hit the guerrilla  with a stool and knocked him senseless. A dozen pistol rhots wero llred  during the scrap, *just to shoo vhe  th'es out,' some joker said, but I was  worse hurt than anybody else.  " 'You ought to have minded your  own business,' said tho old fellow who  dressed my wounded hand.'  " 'But I wasn't going to see my  friend robbed and killed,' I protested.  " 'Mebbe,' was the sage reply, 'hut  you'll have all you can do to keep out  of trouble mindin' your own business  in this country, aud let this be a warn-  in' to you.'  "As it turned out, I was right, and  my friend and the little man shook  hands. We got the $20 from the guerrilla and that same night the boys  wrecked his cabin and drove him out  of tho camp."  THE HEAT IN AFRICA.       strangest of lakes  THE HOTTEST CONTINENT OF THEM  ������������������ '. ALU  WUy Not Iliinie Made Ice.  If the courts fail, science may be depended upon to knock out the ice trust  says a chemist in the Kansas City Star.  "I venture the prediction that the average well to do family will be making  its own ice inside the next two years.  For a long time past a number of the  cleverest inventors in the country have  been trying to devise a small, compact  ice machine, with a capacity of from'  50 to 500 pounds a day, that can be  operated by any domestic servant, and  they have made sufficient- progress to  bring success clearly in .view. It is au  interesting fac^that nearly all the. remarkable improvements which bave  heen made ln large commercial machines during the last two or three  years have suggested themselves in  this tireless search for a practical  household apparatus.  "When I say that success is in sight,  I mean that all the most serious prob-.  lems have been solved, and the difficulties that remain to be overcome are  purely mechanical. As a matter of  four or five small machines are already  in the market, but none of them quite  meets the requirements. The ideal apparatus .for use in cities will probably  obtain its power from an incandescent  lamp socket, just like the ordinary  electric fan. The cook will fill up the  receiver with water, make the connection and go about her business.  There is nothing Utopian about thla  little forcast. Private ice plants'are already practical for very small commercial concerns���������resturants, confectioners, etc���������and the household machine  i*; one of the advances along the line of  domestic economy to which we maj  look forward with absolute confidence.  By the by, one of the inventors who  is pegging away at the problem is a  New Orleans man. and I was told lately that he had turned out a very successful working model.

'Africa is tho hottest continent ot all.  One needB to iuru only a fow pages ot  Africa travo.s to feel cool by comparison in thinking how very hot ho  might be.  Mungo Park, that pioneer ot the  Dark Continent, remarks upon the awful heat produced by a vertical sun in  a di*y and snudy country, wilh a  scorching wind blowing irom tho desert. Tho ground becomes unbearablo  to the naked toot, and evon thoroughly  seasoned negroes will not run irom ono  tent to another without sandais. Oiieu  tho wind from tho Sahara was so not  that he could not hold his hand in tho  currents of air coining through lUo  chonks of his hut without feeling sensible pain.  About tbe hottest place in the world  Is Massowah, on the shoro ot the Rod  Sea. Its average temperature for the  month of May is ninety-nine degrees-  Fahrenheit, und even ln mid winter  the thermometer is said to rise frequently lo over one hundred degrees in  the shade. An ISnglish naval officer  says the hottest town in India is nothing compared to Aden, while Aden'a  heat is mild to that of Massowah,  whose climate can only bo compared to  that hot hereafter which we aro all  anxious to avoid. It was at Massahow,  that James Bruce, the famous eighteenth century traveler was astonished  to find the heat had made his soalinu  wax more fluid than tar.  Captain Lyon, who made the acquaintance of tho Sahara early in this  century, ws struck by the absence of  vegitatlon. He observed murry skeletons of animals, and occasionally tho  grave of some unfortunate human ue-  ings. The sun's heat ha'd so dried all  these bodies that thore was no appearance of putrefaction, liven animals  just dead gave forth no offensive odor;  and after a long lime their skin remained unbroken with Ihe hair still on  it, though so brittle as to fall apart  from a slight blow.  Journeying towards the Great Desert, John Davidson was murdered by  the natives, and his privately printed  journal (1S39) is a rare and most interesting record of African adventures.  When the thermometer in tho ��������� sun  marked a temperature of one hundred  and forty-one degrees, he had to wrap  pieces oE white wool about his stirrups, Moorish daggers, and all metallic  articles, because they grew too hot to-  be handled.  It is affirmed that eggs may be baked in the hot sands of Upper Egypt  and Nubia, and the A rabs say, "in Nubia the-soil is like fire, and the wind*,  like a flame." When Bayard Taylor  traversed the Nubian Desert," he seemed to absorb tha sun's neat until he  glowed like a live coal. The skin ot  his face cracked and peeled off." and  had to be anointed every day with butter, from the alternate buttering and  burning attaining at last the orispness  of a "well basted partrlfige." This dry  heat acted also upon-the provisions;  dates became like pebbles of jasper,  and ,when he asked for bread he was  given a stone.    -  In his wanderings' among the wild  tribes of the boudan, F. L. James'occasionally noted a temperature of one  hundred and sixty-four degrees under  the sun's rays.*  In his notes of the African experiences which ended with his death at  Khartoum, the lamented Gene'ral Gordon, made such remarks^ upon the  weather as: "No man under forty  years of age should be hero, and-ther,  only those who are accustomed to  these climates. Young-fellows never  will stand the wear and tear and malaria of these countries."  C. J. Anderson encountered excessive heat in his explorations of Southern Africa, and his violent thirst could  not be appeased by water, half boiling  as it was. He says: "We experienced  precisely the same sensation as when  standing before the mouth ot a heated  oven. The quicksilver rose to such a  height aa almost to make up doubt our  eyes."~        '  Three Thousand _*eeto( Water   ��������� a (_ias  and Marrow Blomitalu Cliaain.  The result of a survey of Lake Chelan In the northerii part ot the State ot  Waahlngtoa has been given by Gen.  Merrlam, commander ot this department.   He says In bis report:  "The cliffs on each side of the lake  were moat perclpitous, towering up ln  many places to a height of 1,600 or 2,-  000 feet. But it is the lake Itself that  Is the greatest marvel. Its waters aro  clear and blue, and by actual Bound-  Ings have been found to be of an average depth of 8.000 feet. This seems almost incredible, but it is the truth.  Tho width of tho lake varleB from a  mile and a halt to two miles, but tho  length is the most remarkable ot all.  "When I'poluted up towSrd what appeared to be the head ot the lake and  asked the Indians lt the lake was not  about three miles long, thoy laughed  and shook their heads. Thoy said It  was a three-days' journey for a four-  oared canoe. I determined to see for  myself, so the next morning my engineer and I and two Indians started tin  the lake in the largest tcanoc the natives possessed.  "It was impossible to go on iho hike  shore as in most pluccs thc mountains  ran sheer down to the water's edge.  Wc rowed along until we came to the  northern confine of thc lake'and there  we found that it made a big bend to  the right and stretched on and on. The  next day wo started out again, and on  the third day at nightfall, just as the  Indians had said, we reached tho head  of the lake. On the return trip we  measured the distance and found the  length to be a fraction over sixty-five  miles.  "This curiously narrow and deep  body ot water wns cut right down  tlirough the mountains by the glaciers  of bygone ages. At the foot of the lake  is a great moraine."  The greatest of African travelers,  David Livingstone, tells how the hot  winds ot the Kalahari Desert marked  every wooden thing not made In tho  country, shrinluhg the best seasoned  English boxes and furniture.  Before his recent travels "in Darkest  Africa," Honry M. Stanley confined hia  marchos in Congo in the mornin(5  hours, on account of .the heat, and ot  the climate ho wrote: "The sun is the  only real enemy to tho European."  ntoMnluliifi Tluit Sine.  , Singing mountains nro those which  nre known to glvo'out musical sounds  when trodden by man or when played  upon by the wind.   This phenomenon  Is duo to tho presence of a particular  sand which is found In many parts ot  tho world. Thc musical sound Is believed to be due to the rubbing together of millions of grains of this perfectly clear sand, which have no irregularities or roughness, and no adherent  matter attached to lhem.  A famous example of a singing  mountain Is that ot thc Gcbol-Nakus  or "Mountain of tho Bell," near tho  Ited Sea. Its notes vary from those ot  a deep, mellow church hell to thoso of.  an Aeolian harp. A similar mountain  Is found In the midst of Pyramid Lake,  Nevada. Here, In certain states ot the  weather, the sound produced by tbe action of tho wind on the ground is like  tho Jangling of coun'less silver bells,  ending with n loud strain like the low  notes of a pedal organ.  l'uwer From the 1'iivlli'n Ifent.  "A distinguished scientist has scri-  otisy suggested the sinking of boilers  deep enough to uso tho heat of the  earth as fuol,"-said a prominent engineer of this city.  That, sounds fantastic, in view ot tho  fact that a depth ot 12,000 feet would  be necessary to boil water, but a  scheme of thc same sort was urged  with groat energy back in the COs by  n Washington inventor named Forain.  If my memory is correct, Forain was a  man of considerable means and a  mathematician of ability. The internal heat of the earth is supposed to  equal about one degree to the 100 feet  of penetration, but he claimed to have  discovered that the , percentage was  very much greater and Increased in  compound ratio after a certain deDth  was reached. He figured out an elaborate table,and "proposed to sink" a  huge shaft with accumulators at the  bottom, from which unlimited steam  would be supplied to the surface." All  that was needed was a few million  dollars capital to. pay for the,'digging  and the plant, and he immediately Bet  to work to raise the amount. Forain  succeeded in interesting a number of  people of wealth and formed a joint  stock company, but meanwhile his .calculations were assailed by -scientists  and It.was shown pretty'clearly that  the figures were incorrect. He replied  with great bitterness and .the consequence was that the scheme went to  pieces in the shock of controversy."  "What became of Forain I don't  know. -If the problem is actually  solved, I suppose he will be fished out  ot.the limbo of cranks and visionaries  to take his proper place ln history."  Ghnuce fur tho Surplttq Womnn.  A report'issued by the British government says that there is "a notable  lack of women throughout the entire  extent of the British colonies," and the  suggestion is made that "at least five  hundred thousand English women  should emigrate there in order, to establish a proper equilibrium between  the sexes." The reason for this suggestion is the fact that there are in  England, and especially in London,  many more women than men, and political economists argue that, as many  ot these women cannot find husbands  at home, they ought to look for them  In the colonies. In London alone there  are said to be live hundred thousand  unmarried women, and if they would  only consent to emigrate the colonial  problem would readily be solved.   -  The~women," h"owever,~are _iot-inclined to emigrate, and they turn a deaf  ear to the grave statistician, who assures them that 'Ibis is simply a case  of supply and demand. Five hundred  thousand young colonists are looking  for wives, and, if the five hundred  thousand Londo'n women will go out  and marry them they will make themselves and others happy, and they will  add greatly to tho prosperity of tlie  British colonies." Neither.do they pay  much hoed to tho French writer who  informs them .that.,they will make a  grave mistake it they decline to accept  this Invitation.  History constantly teaches us that  ���������women aro never more happy than in  young countries. The Sabine women,  when their first surprise was over,  grew accustomed very quickly to their  new husbands, and were treated at  Rome with respect which was not accorded to lhem in their own countrv.  It was the same at the beginning of  Iho century in young America, and if  tho women of that country are lo**dav  more free and more independent than  the women of any other country, Che  reason is because for many years tho  supply of women in the United States  was less than the demand."  1BD������P������NDHNT IUDUNS..  Ch* OMgea are the Wealthiest People I*  the World..  *n is customary to consider Indians  as a species ot beggars, because they,  ore mainly pensioners on the Government; but there could not be a mora  mistaken view. Poverty-stricken, orr  even dependent tribes, are the exception, while many are very well off in  this world's goods. The Cherokee* and.  Creeks are prosperous farmers and  business men, and many a white man*  has envied their possessions.  In another part of Indian Territory  live tho Osages, the moat Independent  Indians on earth; ln fact, they are toxica that, If all their itsacts were turned Into ready cash, thero would he  about $10,000 for every person, from  the veteran warrior to the tiniest pa������  poose.  Tho story of how Uiey got so rich is  an Interesting ono. In 1X7S tho Osagea  occupied a vast reservation In the very,  heart of Kansas. It was bottoming more  valuable overy yenr, and ns a consequence tho whites were closing In upon,  the Indians. The Osagea became alarmed and asked tho Government to let  them sell out and go to the Indian Territory, and the proposition being satisfactory, millions ot acres change*  bands.  With part of the proceeds of the sale  the new reservation In Indian Territory, containing 1,000,000 acres, was  purchased, and the remaining sum was  held ln trust by tho Government, and  Jt now amounts to something over eight  million dollars. When the present  reservation was bought from the Oher-  okees, lt cost 75 cents per acre; to-day  80 per cent, of the land Is valued at %i  an acre; tho remainder���������-tbe tillable-  portion���������Ib worth from ?8 to ?12 aa.  acre.  Their personal property Is valued at"  nearly a million dollars, and they have  a school fund of $180,000. Footing up  theso Items, the Osages are found to be -  worth $15,000,000, and as the tribe numbers 1,500 persons, it is an easy matter  to compute the average wealth per  eapltt-.  Thero is enough tillable land to give*  every Osage, big and little, 200 acres  apiece for a farm, and enough grazing  land left to tack on to each farm 800  acres additional.  Yet. with all thoir riches, many of  the Osages are Industrious, and some  ot t'he farms are as well cultivated as  auy white man's. Tlie majority, however, do not work very hard, because  they don't have to.  Tho interest on the trust fund is "paid'  quarterly, and each member    of    the  tribe comes in for an equal share of  this money, which amounts to $41.5,  or $166 annually.  This income,  in  addition to a few  acres   of    land under cultivation and  -some cattle and ponies,*"keeps the ordi.  nary Osage family in comfort, if nof  affluence.  The Osages have made great advance.  , iment in the   past    twenty years. 'At  first Uiey would uot send their children    -  to school.

Litfcleliold,  tlio   First  Union Presbyterian Church,  New "i'ork City.  Lead us not info-temptation, but dollvor  as Irom evil.���������Tlio Lord's Prayor.  In the prayer that teaches to pray,  Jesus takes full, account of the perils  of life and teaches His followers what  to think concerning temptation. It is  significant that .the petition gives expression neither to a hope of escape  nor to a sense of despair. It is into  temptation, but not into evil, that we  are led ; it is from evil, but not from  temptation that wc arc to ask to be  delivered. None knew better than  Jesus that temptations are at once a  menace and an opportunity, and, as our  secret of safety, Ho indicated a two-  told attitude of mind : a sense of  shrinking lest wc be overconfident a'nd  fail of our equipment, a sense of security lest wc falter and fail of the victor's  crown.  The petition is not a cry for escape,  but a confession of dependence. There  is no escape possible but victory. To  ask to be taken out of temptation is  to ask to be taken out of the world.  In the old parable of Eden the .tree  which represented temptation stood  with its fruit low hanging- and inviting,  a standing challenge, in the very centre  of the garden, where all must pass it  every day. For all men all life is i  series of testings ; every day is a judgment day. The daily decisions of life  test and attest us. Here is some call  to duty ; shall we accept it or decline it ? Pain comes to us ; shall we  fret and chafe under it, or bear it  bravely and try to see its deeper meaning ? Some richness of life is ours ;  knowledge, position, ability, money ;  shall we clutch these things for ourselves or hold them in trust for the enriching of another's life ? No man  can"escapc these questions, and upon  his answer depends his value to thc social order.  Temptations are the penalty of manhood, they arc .he sign of a progress  upward. Only a moral nature can be  tempted. Temptations are the appeals  of the lower nature, the impulses to  be untrue to one's highest vision and  to carry into a higher stage of life the  characteristics of a lower. In the nature of the case, therefore,- they do not  separate us from God. Only, yielding  does that There is no-experience of  human life that lies outside the sphere  of His purposes of grace. God never  meant our lives, to" be- artificially  screened from danger. -The'safe life  is not the sheltered life, but the victorious, life.- Untested virtue is 'only  a possible, virtue. The process .of  proving is for the purpose of approving. Testing manhood,' temptations  reveal it and prove its worth.  Apiary and Garden.  i* _____________  Red clover is valuable for the abundance of pasture it produces and for its  excellence as food. Rich in lime and  nitrogen, as well as containing a large  proportion of starchy matter, it is one  of the best-balanced foods used, and is  also higMy relished by all kinds of  stock. In addition to promoting a  large flow of milk from cows, it is unexcelled as pasturage for hogs. Its  value as a fertilizer is also admitted,  and many farmers grow it for that  purpose, as well as for food.  Every morning brought a chanco.  And every chance a-noble knight.  But testing implies the possibility of  failure, and. a moral failure is no trivia] thing.     The issues of eternal life  ���������are at stake upon the battlefields of the  heart _    Temptation   *,net   means   the  ���������moulding of character ; yielding means  its sure and terrible, orevention..

While it is profoundly  true that God leads us into temptation,  He does not lead us into all temptations.  Into some   we lead   ourselves.      Hut  when one  wilfully makes a choice of  circumstances or actians tli-t are hostile to the higher .'ife of himself or of  others he simply places himself at the  mercy of the forces of evil.   Compromise is fatal.   There is no possible security outside the p_t_.w.y"of God's  guidance.  A prayer of dependence and a prayer of confidence. Xot n' ro'it'est that  .we be taken out of temptation, but  that'we be kept in temp ration. We  need falter in no testing into which  duty* shall lead us. W'isn, in 1-iytlty  to life's highest standard, it is your  purpose to try as best jou can to do  the right thing, count it all joy when  you fall into manifold temptations.  iThey are a bugle call to battle ,n which  you may win the crown of an eternal  life.

Aged persons who arc toothless,  says, Dr. l'crnic, in his work entitled  "Herbal Simples," can live almost exclusively on honey. The great Duke  of Beaufort, whose Iccth were white  and sound at seventy years of age,  whilst his general health was likewise  excellent, had for forty years before  his death a pound of sugar daily in  his wine, chocolate and sweetmeats. A  relish for sugar lessens the inclination  for alcohol, and seldom accompanies  the love of strong drink. Willi young  children cane sugar is apt to form  acids in the stomach, chiefly acetic,  which causes pain and flatulence, so  that milk sugar should be given instead to those of tender years who  arc delicate, as this produces only lactic acid, which is the main constituent  of digestive gastric juice. Tacitus informs us that our German ancestors  gave credit for their great strength  and their long lives to thc mead or  honey beer on which they regaled  themselves. Pliny tells 0/ Rttmilius  Pollio, who enjoyed marvellous health  and vitality when over a hundred  years of age. On bcrng presented to  the Emperor Augustus, who'inquired  what was the secret of his wondrous  longevity, Pollio replied, "The eating  of honey and anointing with oil."  Honey has certain claim** as a food  which cane sugar docs not possess. It  is a heat-former and a producer of vital  energy both in the human subject and  in the industrious little insect which  collects the luscious fodder. Moreover, it is all ready for absorption  straightway into thc blood after being  eaten, whereas cane sugar must be  first masticated with the sali\a or spittle, and converted somewhat slowly into honey sugar before it can be utilized for the wants of the body.  Hotbed management.  The methods of preparing and caring for a hotbed are very simple, and  with care one should have but little  trouble. The ordinal y hotbed sash is  three by six feet, but any old sash will  answer the purpose. The bed should  extend east and west, and tlie frame  should be a little higher-on the nortli  than on -the^ south sidc,'/tq give'the  glass a pitch toward the sun. Ten  inches in.front and 14 behind is about  right. The.sash should fit closely.and  the ends of the' frame should come up  even with the'*top of the sash,,to prevent the -wind from blowing under on  to the plants. .The frame should also  have a stay* across the top about every  six   feet,"  to   prevent   the   sides   from  Tommy had ibeen a town mouse all his  lltfclo lifo up ,to tlio present vc.ir, but  work had been plentiful with .'dad, who  was discussing with his wife the dcir*  ability of sending Tommy for a week  into tiro country, snys Spare Moment 1.  Tommy listened thoughtfully, nnd at  lenpt.li broke in :  "I don't want to go."  "Why not J"  " 'Cause I've ltenrd thoy have thrashing mncliines in the country, and il\ hut'  enough hero in town, whore it's done bv  hand." ���������*  springing in. '        '���������**...  With the first warm days in}���������Itrch,'  or even^as early as February in some  districts, preparation should "be made  for thc hotbed.* A few barrels <of  good -garden'loam 'should have been  prepared the fall' before and stored in  a place away from the frost, for it  is difficult to, get good soil at this season of tlie year.- Select'some sheltered spot, where, there is plenty of  sunshine, and draw out a "few loads of  fermenting . horse manure. - If, the  manure is heating evenly all ^through  it may be built up into the bed -at  once, but if not it should be' shaken  up weH and piled in a flat heap for a  few days, and*if any portions of it-are  dry these should be wet down.' 'When  the heat: has permeated well through  the pile fork it over and build it up"  into the bed,-1 shaking out all. of the  lumps, so that it will pack evenly and  give a steady heat.- Tread it down  quite firmly, for' if. left too loose it  will ferment'rapidly, giving an intense  heat for a thort time, then.become exhausted. Build tbe bed about two  feet thick and large enough'so that it  will extend two feet beyond the frame  on all sides. Then set "on the frame  and bank it up to the top with manure. Next put in about four or_five  indies of soil, put on thc sash and let  iUsweat. It .will_soon_begin_to_hcat  quite violently, and the temperature  will run up considerably over 100 f.-  grees, after which it will begin to si ���������-  side, and about the third or fourth  day it will be down to about 90 degrees, when it will do to sow the  seed.  It* wag claimed some years ago by  The American Agriculturist that radish, lettuce and onion seed may be put  in along with tomato, cabbage, pepper  and egg plant seed for plants. Rake  the-bea smooth and fine, and sow the  seed in drills three inches apart, covering half an inch deep. The plants  will be uf> in a few days, and in about  three"weeks'"time, if the weather is  favorable, radishes will be fit to use.  Lettuce, however, may be transplanted  to a cold frame, and onions will give  sets for the' garden. If in picking  the lettuce the leaves are removed and  the roots and crowns left they will  throw out a new growth and continue  to produce all through the season.  The plants should be kept free from  weeds and thinned, so they will have  room to develop. Tomatoes will make  stronger, stockier plants if transplanted when they are two or three inches  high.  The sash of the hotbed should be  raised a little every day, to give the  plants fresh air and to regulate the  temperature. When water begins to  gather on the under side of the glass  it indicates that the temperature is  running too high, and fresh air should  be admitted, but be careful not to allow the "cold winds to blow on the  plants. The sash should be closed,  as the temperature falls, toward evening. If the nights arc very cold extra  covoring will be necessary. Old  pieces of carpet or matting can be  used, or lijtht board- covers can be  made, which arc more convenient.���������  Philadelphia  Record.  A Pullman to Whitechapel.  There are many stories in circulation  regarding Mr. Albert Chevalier, the  coster comedian, but the best of all is  an absolutely true one which he himself tells, says "M. A. P." He was  ���������to use a professional phrase���������"working two turns." There was no time  to spare between the chgagements.and  "Chivvy" used to run across to Edg-  ware Road station in his war paint,  cut-away coat, bell-bottomed trousers,  pearlies, rakish hat, and red handkerchief included. One night he bustled to the booking office, put down  his money antl asked for a "first-class  to Hammersmith." Standing close by  was a real, genuine coster, whose attire was almost as picturesque as that  of the actor. With amazed eyes he  followed the movements of Chevalier,  admired his "get-up," and was on the  point of striking up an acquaintance  with a seeming "pal" when he heard  Chevalier ask' for his ticket. "What ?"  cried the real cosier ; "that cove wants  a fust-class to . 'AinnicrsmifT ? 'Ere,  matey, give me a Pullman to Whitechapel i"  An Interesting Locality.  Tlie Detroit Ncws-Tribunc says :-���������  "It is generally acknowledged that the  Passmore Edwards social settlement  in London is, indirectly, the result of  the publication of Mrs. Humphry  Ward's 'Robert Elsmcre.' Gladstone  and Tolstoi both gave liberal criticisms  in praise of thc work, and Mrs. Ward  has been given generous recognition  'in England and abroad. Mr. Gladstone in his review of her first prominent book emphasized the writer's  strong" thought of the brotherhood of  man, rich and poor, and Tolstoi has  called her the greatest living English  novelist. Mrs. Ward has always kept  her home life and her public career distinctly separate, and refuses all efforts  to be interviewed. It is said that  George Meredith is the only other  prominent fiction writer who has never  been interviewed. Mrs. Ward's^ country home is one of the old English estates within easy reach of London, and  one of the few remaining estates of its  size still mentioned in 'Domesday  Book.' The house was once the home  of that charming seventeenth century  poet, Waller. Sir Walter Scott also  once occupied the'old house, and it ia  supposed that the little Viliage of  Ivanhoe, near by, suggested the -title  of Scott's famous novel. Indeed-the  whole country round about_ is_ full of  the interest of literary association,.and  a delightful spot in which to evolve the  studies of character which make such  a strong feature of Mrs. Ward's  works."  Carnegie and His Lieutenants.  Andrew Carnegie, according to an article in The New iTork Sun, was recently  asked:   , ;  "What influenced you most in the"selection of your lieutenants'in'the steel  industry?"   -~ _      ,     *' L . .

And when he did  then he became one of my lieutenants,  and in return for his assistance I endeavored to let him have a fair share in the  profits of my business,"  A number of incidents are related in  the article bearing upon Mr. Carnegie's  remarks, of which the following is'one:  ' "Only a few years'.ago William B  Corey,-President of the Carnegie "Company and*the.Carnegie,Steel Company,  and frequently talked of 'as- a futuro  President of the United. States Steel  Corporation, was pushing a'wheelbarrow in the yards of one of the Carnegie  mills in Braddock.

King Edward and Absolutism.  Under the caption, "English Distrust  of Edward VII.," the Literary Digest  says :  When a little over two years ago  Edward VII. succeeded his illustrious  mother on the throne of England, he  proclaimed his intention of being "a  constitutional monarch in every sense  of the word." But an uneasy suspicion, vague at first, but ever growing  more precise, has seized the British  mind that the King is not keeping  within thc limits prescribed for hiin  by thc unwritten constitution of his  country. He is accused of usurping, or  attempting to usurp, functions whicli  rightly pertain only to thc responsible  Ministers of thc Crown. The tone of  British comment upon this suspected  development of the King's character  indicates that the blood of the race  which dealt with Charles I. still flows  in the veins of thc average Englishman. In other words, it is being intimated in the London press that if Edward VI [. has really undertaken to interfere with the Ministry and to decide the policy of Great Britain after  the fashion of the German Emperor,  there will ensue consequences oi a serious kind. The Spectator (London;, it  is true, scouts the idea that the King  has done, or wants to do, anything  of the kind. However, The Daily News  (London) insists that Edward VII.  forced the German alliance���������so far as  Venezuela is concerned���������upon a reluctant Ministry, and it points out that  this proceeding of his Majesty's was  a most serious step to take. The Outlook (London) solemnly warns he  King against his course, which is pronounced revolutionary and dangerous.  This paper attributes the King's usurpation of Ministerial functions���������if there  was any such usurpation, and it says  there was���������to the weakness of Premier  Balfour. To quote thc exact words of  our contemporary: "Our Prime Minister is Mr. Balfour, and Mr. Balfour  is young to the office. And we can  imagine that if some kingly desire had  to be declared impolitic and impossible,  more experience and austerity than Mr.  Balfour possesses as yet would , be  necessary to utter the requisite interdict. As things have gone, a most  glaring divergence of sentiment between the British Government and the  British people has been revealed to the  world. However little such a contradiction may matter as between the German Government and the German people, in this country it must, if persisted  in, make the Government impossible.  The British people rule in Britain. The  German people do not rule in Germany."        ...  - ,,  The explanation of Edward VII.'s  ���������sudden taste for absolutism, proceeds  this London paper, is to be found in  the fact that the German Emperor is  his nephew. The uncle is dazzled, and  he has been misled into cajoling the  Ministry, which in its turn has betrayed the people ���������'.���������.."What answer  would the ordinary-Englishman give if  asked why his/ Government so misrepresented him ?- Not to employ-any  phrases about the matter, he would and  docs say, plump^and plain, that the  reason is to be'.found in the relationship of. King and'Kaiser; that also is  the-'answer of members 'of Parliament  and those whose business it is" to seek  an explanation <of so strange a Ministerial procedure. , A Government containing'"Mr. " Chamberlain,* the Mr.  Chamberlain,who replied to Count von  Buclow with brusque and unaccommodating-brevity,? could .not want for^ a  convinced interpreter of the plain sentiment of "the British people, a sentiment of self-reliant national dignity  needing'no help'**from Germany in the  work 'we have to do in the world. But  Mr. Chamberlain is not Prime Minister."' -_       .*;  The situation ' is certainly unusual,  for it is generations since a British  ruler has-been accused of attempting  what George'Ilf. ^failed so signally in  achieving.    -The,Paris Temps says it  The Guild In China.  The handsomest buildings in China,  excepting the great temples, says Public. Opinion, are the guild halls. The  Chinese are past masters in trade organizations. Every industry is a simple but effectively organized guild, and  the guild halls of some of the richer  trades in Canton, arc superb. Even in  the north it would be hard to find any-  ' thing to surpass the green-tiled, exclusively ornate middle gateway of one of  the guild halls in Chcfoo. The guild  idqa is highly developed, too, even to  the extent of profit-sharing by employees. The beggars and thieves have  their carefully governed guilds, as well  as the carpenters and thc silk dealers.  A non-union beggar will be driven out  or quickly made away with. The begging business is handled wilh scientific  precision, the vagabonds making regular rounds, pounding tins, throwing offal, and otherwise making life impossible for reluctant givers. A regular  payment to the head of the guild secures immunity. .There* is'a considerable admission fee charged to candidates for membership in thc beggar  guild.  It is largely by means of the guild organizations that a Chinese city is governed. In Canton, for example, each  guild has its own street, and, of course,  its own ciders.. For thc maintenance of  the streets, its cleanliness, thc preservation of order in it," the'heads of the  guild are rcsponsrblc. Accordingly, at  night one finds gates locked at each  end of thc street, and passing down one  of thc great streets where trade succeeds trade, requires a continuous  squeezing through half-locked gates  Any crime committed in the street of  the jade stoneworkers would be laid at  their door, and they would have to produce the criminal or a substitute.  Municipal orders would reach the guild  members through their ciders, with  whom alone the Government deals.  Even the guild of thieves'finds its place  in the Chinese civil system. The head  thief occupies a semi-official position in  soutli China, at least, for though he  may continue to steal himself, his punishment is remitted that he may watch  over thieves, and be in a position to  recover stolen propeity.

In view of thc recent interesting debate in the House of Commons, the  following from Blackwood's Magazine  is of interest *���������  For  the  average  reader  who   may  have ceased to take absorbing interest  in military reform after,thc passing of  liis hot fit, it is well to particularize.  The War Office ideal of strategy gives  us, in addrtion to recrurts and non-effectives,  190,000 men for home garrisons,  200,000 men, more  or less,  for  thc  defence of  London,  and a home  field army of 120,000 men, with 80,000  white troops for India and 30,000 for  tlie colonial garrisons. Wc must, therefore,  carry  forward a total  of  half a  million   men  at  least,   committed,  by  the nature of their functions and the  law of their recruiting, to a task which"  is'nothing more nor less than a sinecure  unless  our navy is driven from  thc seas.    "These numbers," said Mr.  Brddnck' to   the. colonial   Premiers,  "are'certainly not deemed too large-by;  our mrlttary advisers,  in view of the  possibility" of our at any time losing  the command of the sea."    The veil-  is lifted and the  murder-is out.    No  words could express" more naively the  entire absence of compiehension of the  real problem that confronts ^'our military advisers."    The'statement quoted  is rn direct conflict with the Duke of  Devonshire's   famous   declaration    of  1896 .   "The   maintenance   of   sea   supremacy  has   been   assumed   as    the  basis of the system bf Imperial defence  against  attacks  from  over  the  sea,"  The high  a_g_rs are Hot in Unison ;  we are Back in the old,  extravagant  and disastrous'system of'government  in compartments.' The question which  all those-* who  interest themselves  in  great problems of national defence are  asking is this : How comes it that after Mahan, Colomb, Thursfield, Laugh-  ton and all the series of brilliant writers on naval strategy have laid down  for   us   in   letters   of gold  the plain  and incontrovertible principles of national strategy, how comes it that our  War Office should continue to both  preach, and, to our heavy cost, practise a theory of war which is the exact  ���������mtlthests' instead of the corollary of  our navfcl policy ?

In    Ida    M.  Tarbcll's    history    of  the Standard Oil Company, now running in McCIure's, the personality of  J. D. Rockefeller is 'discussed at soma  length, in part as   follows:���������"Oi courso  Mr. Rockefeller knew that the railroad  was a public carrier, and that its charter forbade    discrimination.    But    he  knew that tlie railroads did not pretend  to obey the laws governing" thcur, that  they regularly handed special rates anil  rebates to  those who  had- large amounts of freight.    That is, you could  bargain with thc railroads as you could  with a man carrying on a strictly private business depending in no way on ������  public franchise. Moreover, Mr. Rockt-  fcllcr knew that if he did not get rebates somebody else would; that they  were  for  the  wariest,  the  shrewdest,  the most persistent.    If somebody was  to get rebates, why not he?   This point  of view was no uncommon one.   Many  men held it, and felt a sort of scorn,  as practical men always do for theorists,  when it was contended that thc shipper  was as wrong in taking rates as the  railroads in granting them.   Thus, on  one hand there was    an    exaggerated  sense .of personal independence, on. the  other a firm balief in combination; on  one hand a determination to root_out  the vicious system of rebates practised  by'the railway, on the other a determination to keep it alive and profit by it.  Those thcoiics which the body of oilmen held as vital and fundamental Mr.  Rockefeller and his associates    either  did not comprehend or were deaf to.  This lack of comprehension by many  men of what seems    to    other    men  to    be   the   most   obvious principles  of justice is not rare.   Many men who  are widely known as  good share    it  Mr. Rockefeller is as 'good.'   There was  no more faithful Baptist in Cleveland  than he*    Every  enterprise    of    that  church    he    had    supported    liberally  from his youth.    He gave to its poor.  He visited its sick.    He wept with its  suffering.   Moreover, he gave unostentatiously to manv outside charities ol  whose worthiness he was satisfied.   He  was simple and frugal in Ins habits  He  never went to the theatre, never drank  wine.   He was a devoted husband and  he gave much time to the training of  his  children,  seeking    to  develop    in  them his own habits of economy and of  charity.    Yet he was willing to strain  every nerve to obtain for himself special  and  illegal  pri\ilcges    from    the  railroads which were  bound  to    rum  every man in the oil business not sharing  them  with  hiin.     Religious  cmo  tion and sentiments of charity, propriety and self-denial seem to have taken the place in him of notions of justice and regard    for    the    rights    of  others."

Much is being said of late in dairy  journals and at conventions about the  comparative' quality of- butter made  where the cream is separated at the  factory, and where it is separated at  the farm and only thc cream delivered to thc factory. Put into a few  words, it is a battle between tbe factory separator and thc farm separator,  In", nearly every case thc reports of  the"*' buttcrmakcrs are that a higher  touch of quality is obtained from the  -factory separated cream than from  the gathered cream separated at the  farms..1.     , ' - -*���������-.,���������-,  Just herc4 is an important matter for'  consideration, and one over whicli we  have'not seen any discussion that the  advocates of the farm separators have  brought ^to their .aid. The milk, whether taken directly to the factory'or  separate^ at thejarm, in _bot]i cases is  alike when Jt comes from the .cavs.  It is the man behind the cow that is  the .cause of any distinction, good or  bad, that may be found, and not thc  separators. The cream as it comes  from the small separator at the farm  is in every respect as* sweet, fresh and  perfect as the cream from" the large  separator at the factory... It is in the  after care of the cream tliat is the  cause of such imperfection, it any, that  may be met in the cream.  The quicker cream, after it leaves  the cow, is carried through the necessary changes on its way to thc butter product, the better will be the  quality of the butter, as judged by present standards. Factory rules of  management do not require prompt  daily delivery to thc factory of the  cream from the farm separators, where  the cream gathering plan is practised.  For the convenience of the maker the  cream is held at the farm where made  for a day or two, and frequently for  several days, before delivery.    Under  Controlling K_g rroititctlon.  Some  men who  have  been in  tho  poultry business   for a   consldcnblo-  tlme claim that the}' can control egg  production.    Thta they profess to do  .-  largely by selection arrd feed.    They  cause hens to lay a large number ot-  eggs, and they can, if they desire, _top  them from laying by observing cer.'_!u  rules   or neglecting   them In ev. ,,-in  ways.     To exy *, person can ah.'ays-  control the production of eggs is *���������__-  ing a good deal.   A cow withholds net,  talk.    Many hope thought they can  overcome this.habit or peculiarity in  the   cow,   but   _0met11_.es   the   best,  cures fall.  Moving hens trom one house to an- -  other or from one farm to   ano h-T*  will stop egg production for a i_mc_.  This can be accomnted for on the sup- -  position that th*   change    causes'  a.    ,  shock to their nervous system, wltb_  a corresponding dim.nution of nutrition.    This fact Is damonstrated    'at. _.-  that should the, nest of a-wild turkey be   destroyed, -she will   make   a_.-_  new nest and lay a number of egga-.-..  equal to the first, although she vioul<i:fV  otherwise raise but one brood.  yj  Tha.--,-. -S  domestic turkey is also induced 'to*^.  lay more eggs when removed from tha.-  nest, and all females show a disposL~ _''-''*Sl  tion to sit when the nest becomes fall,  of eggs.

In this  way the quality of thc product made  from it is graded down. The man behind the cow, in whose care the  cream is left* while at the farm, is responsible for all defects in tlie cream  >-hile under his care.  The practice of keeping cream for  several days, or for a week, as is sometimes thc case, cannot be too emphatically condemned. Choice butter cannot be made from cream a week old,  as every critical- buttermaker, private  or factory/ knows. Another error of  the dairyman is in failing to clean and  scald thc separator each day, and  every time it is used. Complaint is  made in some localities, and at conventions, that anxious salesmen represent that this is* not necessary. But  this is all wrong. All utensils employed in handling milk and in dairy work  whether the factory or the farm separator, or milk pail, must be thoroughly cleaned and sterilized after  every using. A speaker at one convention declared that where separators were properly used they always  got good cream ���������M.rinc Farmer.  No animal can use its food twice.

LAUNDRY RESTRICTION.  I.-  Although somewhat late in the dny  the City Council is to becongralirlated  .   upon the passage of the   "Wash-house  --Iie-trictiou Bylaw" at its meeting   on  Friday last.     The by-law in question  limits   the     operation    of     such   institution, to Blocks 1 to I. and 7  to 12  inclusive, being U19 south-west corner  of tho city bounded on   the   north by  Douglas and on   the east   by   Hauson  streets: Block J00, from  Connaughl lo  Campbell Avenues and Fifth to Sixth  -Street; and  Blocks   107   and   10S,   at  present unoccupied,   to   the north of  the track.       The bv-law provides, in  addition, that  such businesses in  any  part of the city shall be provided with  ample   drair.age    facilities   and   conducted in   a   manner  approved of by  the Medical Health   officer.     Sprinkling from the mouth is also prohibited.  While Lhe   Council   evinced a commendable    desire     to      limit      the  Ix-mndaries within which  wash-houses  could be operated, there was   danger,  fliaVirTtberf~ansielyT-~d.5~~.iris    sueir  limits would have   been too curtailed,  and the remarks of the  City  Solicitor  011   the   subject,   we  ar.  glad to any,  leceived proper attention.      He pointed out that while restriction ot   trade  wa. permissible actual   restraint   was  not. nnd we think  the present by-law  will   be   upheld   by   the   courts,     if  atUcked.     Aid.   Mctaod staled   the  case tersely by saying that   the limit.*-  prescribed . u-nulil    be   ample   in   the  opinion   of   r-easonable   men   and l.bp  interpretation of by-laws like the  one  under  discussion     was   founded    on  principles of common sense.      The bylaw should meet with the approval  of  our citizens and be explicitly observed.  We.understand  that   there   are   at  present one or two Chinese   laundries  in  operation   outside ; the   prescribed  limits,   and   their   regulation   should  now   receive   the   attention   of    the  council.     While realizing the wisdom  of   respecting    vested    interests    we  think that     the   by.-law  just   passed  may well be added to for thc   pm-phse  of regulating wash-houses as well outside as within the   limits  referred to.  The city of Victoria, in   1901,  took up  this question at length and we   beg to  suggest that Kevelstoke take advantage of the experience   of   the   capital  and make further regulations   regarding cement floors, distance of washing  places from street line,   etc.,   making  such regulations apply to all laundries  whether  tit   present   in   operation or  pot.  GROSS INCOMPETENCE  It will be remembered that the  Government, a couple of weeks ago,  placed a reserve on large .juarrtitie.s  of limber lands at the coast. This  matter was brought up in the House  at the fori mil sessiorr on Wednesday  lust. The Chief Commissioner drew  irr bis horns at once and, according to  the Colonist, this was his explanation.  "Hon. _Ir. Wells said that the  Government had 110 objection to the  resolution. He explained that the  Island Power Company had irrade its  application two years ago. The area  .involved was understood to have a  maximum ot 100 st-uare miles, lt was  found that more, nearly 700 square  miles were involved, and the Government intend to immediately correct  the rnistnke."  The question naturally arises, ���������'Who  made thu mistake1'? If the Chief  Commissioner atterrded to his duties  he would have verified-the description  of the lands reserved. He blames W.  S. Gore,-and probably very rightly.  If Gore is to blame, it should he goodbye. Gore. But that does not absolve  Hon. YV. C. Wells from gross negligence. As wu skated before, recommendations of .Ministers are passed  upon by theCouncil without discussion  of details, and there have been too  many of these so-called "mistakes" in  the Chief Commissioner's department  lately.   AVells must go.  INJURIOUS ADVERTISING.  There are some people in this  province who consider-the Department  of Mines should he a boom bureau for  undeveloped prospects instead of one  to supply reliable information as lo  the conditions of the mining industry  us they exist. This is particularly  true of some of ehe inhabitants nl* the  SiTiiilkameen c*~~~~~~try~Tlie liome" of'tbe"  ijigautic Ulalla fake. Because all mining experts do not fall down and  worship John Brown's irorr capping, or  Bill Smith's coal outcrop and call each  the "greatest thing in the world" some  folks in the little burg of Princeton.-ut  the forks of .Siinilkameen and Tuln-  inueii rivers, are out with the scalping  knife.  And so the Princeton branch of the,  .Mining Association with a fine dis-  iVHiird of common sense and forgetful  of the idiocy of mis-statement, have  held a little love feast and demanded  the resignation ov discharge of the  Provincial Mineralogist. A man named  Winkler- (probably a descendant of  Winkle in the "Pickwick Papers") is  the fiither* of this most extraordinary  resolution, which reads*.  '���������In the opinion of this branch of the  Provincial Mining' Association, tlie  present Provincial Mineralogist is  uiisiiiled for the position he occupies,  arrd we believe it iir the interests of the  Province that the executive of the  Provincial association urge upon the  ifovernmei.it the desirability of a  change. Our reasons for this belirf  are as follows:  "First ��������� His reports on new mining  camps aro invariably pessimistic anil  tend to discourage both prospector  and cirpitiilist seekirrg a suitable fit-Id  for operations; so notoriously is this  the ca������e that interior mining districts  having few developed properties have  never welcomed his visits, and his  name has become a by-word and a jest  among large numbers of the prospecting fraternity irr Southern B. C;  "Second���������Because of their ofllcinl  rharacterhisreporlshave an extremely  injurious    effect    on     outsiders    un  acquainted with the country's resources, and go fur to nullify the ttt'orts  of those who are working for the  development of new sections;  "Third���������In particular we protest  strongly against his report on this  district, which did it 'i grave injustice."  We have not space to quote extensively from the report referred to,  which will he found at length in the  Mines Report for 1001 (pp. 11(10 et seq )  but will give the last two paragraphs  of All'. J-tnliertson's general summing  up of conditions. (See p������ge 030 of the  report).  "From the neighbourhood of Princeton northerly to Nicola there is a zone  highly mineralized witb copper on  which some development has been done  nf a preliminary nature���������which iTho advent of a railway will greatly stimulate.  These pr-opertins will certainly be low  grade, and as there seems to be a large  mineraliy.i'd area it will reipure extensive development lo prove tlie ultimate  value 1 it the tamp.  "Then* have heen several coal locations made in the various parts of this  district, the more important being in  the vicinity of Princeton and Nicola,  where very consider.-ibleand important  beds have been proved which are  referred to in detail elsewhere."  And yet that foolish .Mr. Winkler  calls the report "pessimistic." ''  We are quite aware that there is a  certain class of mining promoters who  do not like Mr. Robertson's reports.  He is not. however, engaged as Provincial Prophet, but is required by lire  "Bureau of Mines Act" to report on  the mining industry of the Province.  It is not his duty to indulge in airy  nothings or platform platitudes, but to  state facts. And that is what the Provincial Mineralogist, does.  In his smill way, little Mr. Winkler  is somewhat of a humourist. We note  in clause two he says "Because of their  official character his reports have an  injurious effect." This is p.rfec tly  charming. We know the Government  i.s in bad shape, and sonre of its official  characteristics may be injurious, but.  we were not aware that all official  report-~we~re~fiatur;illy~b!rd: We"fully  sympathiie with Mr. W. as to the  "desirability of a change"���������but in the  Government, not the Alin-tralogist.  But, speaking seriously, our Princeton  friends should pause before again  making asses of themselves. Mr.  Robertson is so well knowti all over  America as an honest and conservative  mining man that all resolutions of this  character must react on their proposers. Despite all pressure to the  contrary his reports have he������n honest,  just and true. Which is the highest  recommendation for any man. Mr.  Winkler's actions remind us of the  poet's description, when he said:  ���������     ���������    ��������� ������ .       "Man, v������ln mini  Pressed In a littlo brief authority.

The Nelson grand jury have called  attention to the undesirable foreign  element at Fernie. And yet the  Laurier Government always disallow  restrictive legislation. Watch out fertile Doukhobors, maybe the Crow's  Nest Company will want to import  them. Passive resistance will suit the  coal barons.  Vancouver is suffering from a severe  attack of False creek flats. The two  head pushers of the Grit party said  - they had a lease, and the Council  objected. Whereat sunny Sir Wilfi id  says he knows nothing about it. But  that doeBti't prevent the lease being in  axisteuce. t Maybe he's like Wells  who Buys "No" and means "yes."  Ths success of the Laurier immigration luetics is phenomenal. So anxious  are European governments lo supply  our needs for population that Denmark has started to send over Its  murderers and criminals. The Danish  government know a good thing when  ihey see It. They recently shipped a  party of eight criminals to Canada,  mixing them up with some decent  people so that the general aveiage  would not be too low. This is no fairy  tale, as witness the following from the  Copenhagen "News":  "Here is a new wiiv of getting rid  of our prisoners. They can be sent,  out to Cunadu, which country is very  anxious to secure immigrant**, where  they will be given work ou fai ins und  at other labor. Some are now being  sent out as an experiment, and it Is  likely that others will follow those  now awaiting shipment in Copenhagen."

Gosnell, Secretary of the  Bureau of Information, is doing good  work. His latest bulletins on agriculture and . Ashing are a mine of information to those concerned. In the  former are some particularly fine half  tones.  The Department of Agrit-iiltiiie  has recently issued a pamphlet of  information to fruit growers. All  those interested can obtain copies ou  application to J. R. Anderson, Deputy  Minister, Victoria. The process of  grafting is well described and illustrated by wood cuts. This is not intended  as a joke.  "If Mr. Wells promised to deliver  the grants and then refused to do so,  it spoke well for his nerve." asked Mr.  McCaul. -    '  "Well.that's aphysiological matter,"  replied-Sir Thomas, amid luughter.-  - We would like* the prescription for  Wells* nervine. r-     <-'  Says the Trout Lake "Topic"' re  ferring to F.

Yet notwithstanding the briefness of his visit, and an inspection���������as  far as' we have been able to ascertain  ���������made from the platform of his hotel,  he feels himself competent to say that  there is nothing the matter with the  river bank nor likely to be, thereby  stamping the men who petitioned the  government for relief, an aggregation  of idiots."  --���������"'.  Please note this is - another  of   the  Chief Commissioner's pets.  Harry Lindley believes in the  aphorism "to point a moral and adorn  a tale" and so at ��������� the -performance of  "How Women Love" on Friday he  laid to his son in the play���������''You are  a smart boy, my son, perhaps when  you grow up you may get in the  -legislature���������give-away- the province,  and maybe die Chief Commissioner."  There's many a true word spoken in  jest.  The Granby company has decided  to operate its own coal mines, and  thus be independent of the Crow's  Nest monopoly. It is intended to sell  surplus product to other smelters.  Which may tend to show Elias Rogers  that there are others. The new  properties are near Blairmore, Alia.,  just over the B. O. line.

The Commission  proved to be worse than a farce, it  made a mockery of truth, it was a  travesty of justice and its abrupt  termination was ' a fitting climax to  the miserable pretence' that it was.  That the belated report of the Commissioner, just presented," should  exonerate the Government is only  what was expected but it means  nothing. The facts brought out in  the evidence, and the method of conducting the investigation rob the  report of its value. It is an appropriate termination to a. scandalous  episode. (Kamloops Sentinel.) All of  which are absolute statements of fact.  Against the wishes of the  Government    the    Provincial     Legislature  o. B. T.  The May number of the "Railroad  Telegrapher," which is just to hand,  his nearly two hundred illustrations  showing the directors of the ord&i-al  woik, the head office staff, and poi-  traits of men prominent in the order.  Among them we notice Ed. Goulet,  W, T. Francis and John Campbell,  C. P. R., Division No. 7. From the  leading article "The*. High Water  Mark" it appears that for the first four  months of 1903 the ordi r has n total < f  8196 added to its membership far out-  rent-hing the growth of any other  railroad labour organization .in the  country. April was the banner month  the tolal.new membership being 1872.  Considerable attention is given to the  speech of D. M. Parry, President of the  National Association of Manufacturers  ut New Orleans last month, and a  most vigorous defence is made to his  adverse comments on Unionism. A  curious feature is the hearty appreciation of Senator Hanna's speech,quoted  in the editorialcoluinns of the Herald  a couple of weeks ago, in which he  advocated ah extension' .of union  principles, ..and, going.even . further,  their consolidation.  The strong financial position of tho  order is shown by the statement of the  mortuary fund which had $60,885.81 to  its credit on 30th"Apiil.  ,  /     " ' I. A. op M.    ,  The " Machinist's Monthly Journal"  for May hns, as its piincipal feature, a  fully illustrated article on Milwaukee,  and the first editorial note is a naive  conundrum as to what made that city  famous. A well timed warning is set  ont������in the official .section, advising  machinists to keep away from the  Pacific Coast, as there is not work  enough to go round. -  The leading article' is a plea for  economic education, the editor pointing out that every branch of economic  life to some extent affects all the  others. This very true statement is  emphasized by mention of. the fart  that aa by the exercise of the ballot  the laborer's emancipation will -come.  so will its coming be hastened by true  conceptions of economic questions  becoming universal.   To quote:    .  "Since education is what is most  lacking in labor's equipment for this  struggle, it ought to be the "duty of  every trade unionist to do all in his  power to educate both himself and his  fellows in a.kuowledge of.economics.1_  The series of articles on "Improvements in the Steam Engine" is  continued, the fifth paper on "Engine  Governors and Fly Wheels" appearing  in the present issue. Magazines of  this character elevate their readers by  amusing and instructing them at the  same time, and the Machinists  Monthly Is to be congratulated on  keeping fully abreast of affairs iu the  complicated calling covered by the  membership of' the International  Association of Machinists.

Astonished, as well .sho might bo, tho  girl sturcd at him in silence. Then, half  turning as she stood with one foot upon  the fonder, she caught sight again, as sho  had done up-stairs, of her own reflection  in a weather-stained looking-glass, nnd  her feminine vanity suddenly got tho  better of every' other feeling.  The expression of her faco changed  suddenly as she stared at* the unattractive-looking object before her. It needs  beauty of a high order, and in the most  perfect condition at that, to stand tho  ordeal of an appearance in a shapeless  "bat which has been thoroughly soaked  and imperfectly dried, seen tlirough tho  medium of an early Victorian looking-  glass.

And if  you've been ill, it's even more important that you should -jet hack than tlmt  I should." 1 think it; will be better for  you to go first, and lo send the cab hael.  for nre. I'll prnmi-tu to wail," .-;ho added  quickly, and with n eerlain injjonunus-  ness which confirmed the impression Hint  sho wns very young indeed. Astley tried  not lo smile, again.  "Oh," said he, "don't trouble your  head    ahout   inc.      After    roughing it  as he had proposed to ao.  The friend ho had como to Oxford to  gee, an undergraduate, some hnlf-douon  years younger than himself, did his best  to make the time pass pleasantly for  him. Ho introduced Astley to his friends  in tho neighborhood, one hy one, nnd  finally to ii family named Mascot, who  lived'on the outskirts of the towtr.  "I'm afraid you won't Und them very |  interesting people," he remarked, as  they drew near tho modern gabled redbrick houso ono Sunday evening. "But  they're inoffensive at, least. The son���������  there's only the ono���������is studying for tho  church, lie's an ardent stamp-collector,  and ho's going to marry a rich cousin.  Thnl's about all there is to tell about  him."  Thoy wero shown into tho convention*  ter ou a snowy winter's day,' that you  won't have to reproach her with such  eccentricity again!"  Tho nc.Nt glimpse lie caught of Norma  waa of a pair of big dark eyes swimming  irr grateful tears.  When tho timo camo for going awny  Astley tried hard to get near enough' to  tlio girl to bid her good-night. Hut she  would not let him.   ..ho became absorbed  ��������� V FACTS  al drawing-room, which agreed in all ro*  with the promise of tho modern  gabled rcd-hrickeil exterior of tho house.  apocU  ������  was good-looking���������could not stand such  * test. Her olive skin looked green;  her black hair looked lank, twisted up,  half-dried, in an unbecoming fashion;  and her large dark eyes and fairly regular features counted for nothing against  these odds.  Instinctively she turned her head away  from Astley, who was struggling to re-  fuin his gravity. For the aw'ful thought  ad suddenly struck him that she might  think he was laughing at her. In fact,  the curious little knob into which she  had fastened her hair peeped out under  her shapeless hat in an extremely comical way. It behoved him therefore to  bo careful.  "I'm afraid you think it very stupid  of me to laugh," he said, as he camo  forward a little way into tho room, and  stood behind one of the mahogany, armchairs. '.���������'������������������.'������������������;!  "Oh, no. Some people see fun in anything," said the girl, somewhat distantly.  Evidently she was not grateful for  ���������what he had done for her. Astley felt  that this was a great comfort. And it  amused him lo think that he had boon  a___ou*3 to avoid an hysterical scene of  tears arrd thankfulness, while she had  been just as anxious to escape the sight  of -him at all.  "Well, when things are at a very had  Eass    they   have  a   way   of   taking   a  lughable" turn,   don't  you   think   so.'  ���������aid he.  "I can't say I do," said the girl, tartly. "There's a long walk in the snow to  ���������be faced, for one thing, and in the dark,  ���������too."  And she glanced out into thc gathering gloom.   Astley broke in cheerfully:  "Oh, it's not qiiite so bad as that. I've  Bent in to Oxford for a cab, vou know,  and���������"  "But I mean to walk," struck in the  {������������������irl, and she suddenly sprang away from  the fireplace and rnr.de for the door.  Astley, however, was nearer to it than  Bhe, and, in spite of his lameness, was  able to obstruct her passage.  "Oh no, you can't do that," he said  quickly, speaking with sudden gravity.  "Oh! but I can. 1 must!" And into  the girl's tone there came suddenly the  first intimation of inward distress which  ahe had given since her reappearance.  "Indeed you must not. I can't allow  It," 6aid Astley, speaking in his turn with  seriousness, and also with unexpected  authority. "To venture on such a walk  along an exposed road, in the dusk, with  the snow and the wind driving towards  you, would be danger, if not certain  death, especially after such an adventure aa you've had," he added hurriedly.  What gave him authority with tlie  girl was not so much the fact that he  aad saved her life an hour or two before,  but a certain hardness, amounting al-  fcost to a suspicion of mockery in his  manner, which made her curiously con*  ���������ciou- of a feeling of inferiority to him.  Though he was pev.cctly courteous, it  -="wa������=w'rth-the=court_*-y^of-one-who-st_.__s.  hi an unassailably superior position.  8he felt that he looked down upon her,  despised her, was courteous only because  It was a convention of his clas3 to be  Verbally courteous to women. The  thought enraged her, quite swallowed up,  __deed, any impulses she might bave had  towards gratitude.  "Oh, as for that, I'm none the worse  tor getting ury feet wet," sire said, ungraciously,* ns she paused a moment,  ���������watching for her opportunity to slip by  kirn and get away.  "Getting her feet wet" was such a  eaphcmUtic description of what had hap-  ���������pencd that Astley could hardly forbear  another "smile. The girl saw it and made  another dash for the door. She was  (Oiled, however, again.  "Excuse me," said he, "but you must  allow me to insist."  The girl drew herself up.  ���������'Suppose I insist too!"  "Then we shall have to see who can  insist the hardest," retorted Astley with  perfect coolness, "and, to judge by our  previous experience, you know, it���������will  aot be you."  The spirit, the dash, the daring went  ont of the girl's face and bearing in a  moment. She gave one shy, frightened  look at his face, and turned away with  a quivering lip. His manner altered di-  rectlv.  "I"should strongly .advi30 you," said  he, with the resumption of a more everyday tone, as he glanced towards the  fireplace, "to take off your hat and wait  quietly and get thoroughly warm before  thc cab comes, a3 you will have. a. very  cold drive." ' .  "And���������and you*!" faltered the girl, in  a strangled voice, and she instinctively  turned as if to obey him.  "Oh, I think I shall perhaps'stay the  ���������night here, unless I tell the cabman to  come back  for me," he said.  It was quite clear that the girl began  to breathe more easily after this. To  the highly-strung mood in which he had  first met her had succeeded the" inevitable reaction, so that: she now felt as  through nn African cnmjmljjn, this sort  of experience is a mere picnic."  A look of interest suddenly peeped out  of tlio sidelong glance sho gave him.  Then, ns he still stood in tho way between hor and tho door, she muttered,  "Very well, then," and immediately  walked back to the fireplace, where she  resumed her former position, standing  with one foot on the fender,and her oyea  directed towards that terrible looking-  glass.  Astley camo forward slowly, drew one  of the horse-hair arm-chairs back to a  discreet/distance, nnd sat down. As she  was between him nnd the window, tho  only view he could get of her faco was  by tiro light of the fire below her, which  throw distorting -shadows upon her face.  Little as he saw, however, ho was conscious that she was taking up the burden of life again, and trying to devise  some manner of tricking him, so that  sho might hide her identity.  Long before this Astley had discovered  that liis companion belonged to a-different'sb'citil class from that he had at first  supposed, and perhaps she divined his  curiosity. At any rate she presently  said, after a pause:  "It's really most important that I  should get hack to Oxford quickly, as  I'm only passing through it, with���������with  inj' aunt, and I havo a train to catch tonight.".  "Indeed! Then it's as well the cab is  coming," said Astley politely.  "Yes, I hope it won't, be very late.  _Ty aunt might"be anxious. As we're  both in great trouble, trouble abotrt  business, she might think, you know,'  she might think all sorts of dreadful  thing3," went on the girl, iluently  enough, but with a manner which was  transparent to tho observant Astley.  "Yes, indeed," said he, in the same  tone as before, when she paused.  The girl wont on with her odd confidences.  "You seo women are easily depressed  when anything goes wrong with them,  and when you've kept a, shop for years.,  and things suddenly go wrong with it*,  why you don't know what to do. But 1  suppose you don't know anything about  shopkeeping?" she went on. turning suddenly to him, ns if with a little burst ot'  frankness.  Once again Astley smiled. This time  safely- enough, for his faco was buried  in shadow. And his answer was made  in a little demure voice which startled  her:  "Perhaps I know as much as you  about it."  There was a pause and he heard her  draw a sharp breath. Then she said  curllv:  "You don't believe what I'm telling  vou**"  Asllev answered with great suavity:  "Well,  no,  1  don't.    But what does  that matter?   It's no affair of mine, you  know!"  Dead silence followed this unexpected  retort. Then the girl moved restlessly,  glanced two or three times at the motionless mass of shadow in the big chair,  and at last asked in a querulous, high-  pitched voice:  "How do you know it's not true!"  "I would much rather not answer you,  but if you. insist I'll tell you how I  know."  Again she waited a moment, and then  said imperiously, but in a low voice:  "I do insist."  ==^\Vell^then,__=see_tha.tiyon_dor^-M-  thore wero tlio usual small, over-crowd  ed tables, tho usual curiosities, tho usual  photographs. One of thoso attracted  Aslloy'a attention; it waa that of a girl,  in evening dress, holding a bunch oC  roses. Ho thought ho had seen the faco  somewhere, hut could not remember  where. Ho had not, however, hnd much  timo for considering tho point* when tha  door opened, and llobcrt Bascot, the sorr,  came in.  Ha proved to bo a rather small nnd  effominntc-looking fair man, with curly  light hair like a baby's, and a precise  little voice and manner. Astley mentally  agreed with his friend that tho stamp-  colleotor might he amiable, but was not  intcrosting.  And then two ladies came in.  "Mr. Haiglr���������my mother���������my cousin!"  eaid llobert Bascot, introducing the visitor.  Astley bowed, and shook hands with  the elder lady. Then his heart leaped  up to his mouth. For as his eyes met  those of the younger lady, their eyes  flashed out a mutual recognition,  Kobert Bascot's cousin was the girl  Astley had saved from drowning ten.  days before I  iu tho conversation of somebody else  whenever hIio saw him coming her way.  Astley, of course, snid nothing to his  friend, 'jack Yielding, about his discovery. But he lingrred on in Oxford,  and when Jack propm-oil another visit  to the Bascols, ho readily assented.  "Now I wonder at your wanting to  go there again," .Tack said. "To my  mind it's tho slowest house in Oxford.  And (.lie women ono meets there nro all  so high dried, exeepl Mrs. ]hiseot*'i\  niece, You're not ut traded there, 1  hope, liccauso you know she's booked?"  he added suspieiounly.  Astley shrugged his shoulders with ft  frown. '  "Am I likely to ho attracted hy nny  icomnii, after my experience?"-snid ho  impatiently.  "I know you say you're not, brrt���������"  "And it's tho truth. I'erhaps one ot  tho attractions of th" Bascots' house fo  mo is that tho culture-press seems lo  have dried most of the attractiveness of  femininity out of the ladies."  "Not out of Nor. v. She's feminino  inougli, in all conscience, with hor iin-  CHAPTER HI.  Nobody noticed the confusion of these  two, as Robert Bascot chirped out their  names in introducing them to each oth-  that"  long to tho class that keep shops,  keep them seriously, I mean."  "I don't see how you can know that.  Tradesmen's daughters are educated  nowadays, better educated, sometimes,  than other people's daughters."  "Better educated, perhaps, but not  educated in quite the same way. And  they don't get the same tone."  Before the girl could reply to this, the  sound of wheels and hoofs struck and*  dcnlv upon the cars of both, and they  beard the cab stop. The next moment  they, heard someone running in the passage.  "We don't want to jatisfy the curiosity  of these people," said Astley quickly.  "I'll go out and say I mean to'stay here  the night, while yon Will just get into  the cab and drive away."  "Oh, thanks,  thanks."  He was already at thc door, and they  exchanged a hasty bow as he we.nf. out.  She saw nothing more of him. With her  heart beating a litlle. faster, she heard  hi., voice informing the landlady that hi:  hardly liked to risk tho chilly drive, anil  asking for a room for the night. Ami  a few* moments later Mrs. .Bonne cam**  in  and told her the cab was nt the door.  Sho got in quickly, not giving her address in the hearii-.g of (.he.landlady, but  simply telling the driver to go into Oxford.  It wa.s altogether n strange, adventure,  Astley thouglit, as he wondered who the  girl he had rescued-could be, nnd what  ber history was". Before night, however, he had personal concerns more  pressing to think n.bmii, for the chill he  had got developed into a feverish attack,  nnd ho had to send for his friend ami a  doctor.  Although ho was well enough in e.  few davs to go back . to the hotel at  Oxford "at which he had hr.cn staying,  Astley, weakened and demoralized by  this ircsh attack of illness following on  tho still more demoralizing typhoid,  stayed on in the town, instead of going  to 'his cousin's scat on tho borders of  East Lancashire, for t'hc hunting season,  Astley bowed and looked down; so did  Norma Bascot. There was a second's  pause, and then it was Mrs. Bascot, a  thin-faced woman of forty-five or so, who  wore glasses and was "intellectual," who  began the conversation.  And Norma stole away to the furthest  possible corner, and tool: care not to  meet Astlcy's eyes.  He was so utterly bewildered by the  discovery that the girl he had saved  * from drowning nnd tiro rich cousin whom  Robert Bascot was to marry were one  and the same person, thnt it was with  tlie "greatest possible difficulty that he  answered intelligently, aird laughed in  tho right places.  And as soon as he could, Iiq took thc  opportunity of examining minutely tho  faco of thc woman who had appeared to  him within so short a time in two such  very diirerent characters.  So different indeed, that if it had not  been for her own miserable self-consciousness, Astley might evenhavc been  tempted to believe himself mistaken.  For, with her black heir beautifully  dressed, parted in thc middle, waved,  and coiled into a massive knot behind  her head, her face looked' much more  beautiful than it had done when she was  blue with the cold and sick with nervousness: while her slight figure, which  had presented no particular attraction  when wrapped in a bedraggled skirt and  shapeless jacket, looked exceedingly  ��������� graceful now that she wore a black silk  skirt, with a slight train, and a blouse of  lavender silk trimmed with black velvet, and two rows of lovely pcarlB round  her throat.  In tho course of the evening Astley  noticed other circumstances about the  girl which excited his curiosity still further. In the first place, she received the  attention* of Robert Bascot, who was  most effusively courteous and even affectionate to her, with an irritable petulance which was patent to such a close  observer a3 Astley. When the devoted  Robert chirped into her ear, fhe looked  helplessly round the room as if anxious  for a chance of escape; and when he  leaned over her, with an odd, prim little  assumption of tender possession, she got  up and walked away.  And throughout the long and somewhat heavy evening, which was characterized by mnch exchange of a dry sort  of talk which the frequenters of the  bona- considered int-llectual and stimulating, the girl talked to everybody in  the house, which was soon half full of  visitors, except to Astley.  He, on his side, w.s bound to respect  her evident wish that he' should bc  eqiially discreet; but his curiosity was  piqued all the same, and he would have  been-glad=*t���������������exehange-il-only-a-fem-  words with his heroine  The next best thing to talking with  her, however, waa to talk about her, and  he contrived to mention her to Mrs. Baa-  cot, by taking up the photograph he  had previously no*'ced, and asking  whether this WM her niece.  "Yes," said the lady at once, "that is  Norm-. It's rather a good one: don't  you think so?"  "Very," said Astley. And aa he npoke  he raised his eyes, arrd saw that the girl  herself, with a look of deep anxiety  burning in her eyes, had drawn near  enough to listen to what her aunt and  he were saying.  "It gives tihe Italian look, doesn't it?"  "Italian," said Astley, glancing firBt at  the portrait and then nt the beseeching  eyes of the girl herself, and then quickly looking down again, "yes, perhaps it  does.   Is she Italian?"  "Not altogether, of course. Her father was my husband's brother. But her  mother was half Italian, which accounts,  I suppose, for some of her daughter's  perversity. Norma's eccentricity is rather trying."  The good lady did not know how near  her niece was.  "Well, eccentricity is rather refreshing in these days wb'-n we're all ns much  alike as if we'd been turned out by machinery," said Astley politely.  "Not in a young girl," retorted Mrs.  Bascot almost tartly. "Why, only imagine what she did lhe other day I In  the most dreadful weather, with a* hurricane blowing and the snow falling fast,  she went for a walk along the. river  bank, and of course Hlippcd into the water, and came back more dead than alive,  looking like a drowned rat. What do  you think of that?"  Once more Astley looked tip from the  photograph, and saw that the girl was  standi'rig quite close to her mint, looking  piteously into his faco. His eyes met  hers for a moment only, and then he  turned to the elder lady and said:  "Well, I think, if ahe fell into tho wa-  pulsivenoss and hor impationcel"  "It's not tho prettiest aido of womanhood,   tliat.     No,   Jack,   young  Bascot  need not look upon me as a, hated rival."  "All right, then.    I own I shouldn't  like you to make a second venture with  an opera-singer's daughter."  "Opera-singer's, ch?"  "Yes.   About tho Inst thing you would  expect to hear of that menage, isn't) it?  Bascot's brother married a singer, and  though thoy are grieved  at the taint,  they are not at all unwilling that the  money she earned should be kept in the  family.'" -'  These details concerning the. girj  whose acquaintance he had mado so oddly increased Astlcy's interest, and on his  second visit ho determined that she  should not escape hiin as she had done  the first time.  But to his surpriso her manner to  hiin had changed altogether. Satisfied  now thnt he would keep her secret, and  grateful for his reticence, Norma at  once, upon his entrance, gave hiin her  hand wilh a blush arrd a faint smile, and  made no further attempt, as she had  done on his previous visit, to avoid)  -speech with him.  It was natural that, as on the previous occasion, Astley should be made  much of as a hero who had fought and  bled in his country's service. The fighting clement was usually conspicuous by  its absence from tho slightly stuffy professorial Oxford atmosphere, and tho Indies in particular were never tired of  hearing, liis adventures, which he described with an attractive admixture oi  truth both new and strange.  And* of  course it was presently suggested by one of the matrons that he  should marry.    Jack Fielding, who was-  near, answered for him.  ".Now I'm going lo 'give him away,'"  said he,.with a laugh. "lie made a confession to me last night, and owned thai  he disapproved of marriage altogether.  Won't have it at any price, wants it  abolished. Now you know what a serpent you've been harboring by your fireside."  There was* a chorus of remonstrance,  and Astley defended himself as woll ns  ho could, though he was hardly listened  to. For each of the ladies was more intent upon being heard than upon hearing hiiu.  Norma, who was near enough to hear  all this, was the only silent and grave  listener. But when, presently, he got the  opportunity he wan rod of speaking to  her in a quiet corner, she turned to him  at onee, and said:  "I do agree with you so thoroughly in  what you said about marriage. 1 think  it's a hideous thing!" ***  Prepared as he wa.s for tho eccentricity  of which he knew, Astley looked at hor  in real surprise.  "Why," said he, "that is, if you will  allow me to say so. a strange thing to  hear from a ladv engaged to be married  herself."  Norma's eyes flashed.  "I'm not engaged to him," she said vehemently.

So great has been tho interest    in  Toronto over    the cure ot    Bright's  Disease, reported from Shchcnacadic,  Nova Scotia, that a reporter yesterday visited  the head  cilice    of   thc  Dodd's   Medicine     Co.,     62    Yonge  street, Toronto,    to    ascertain    thc  views of thc management    concerning  the case.    He found the management  satisfied, but by no means surprised.  "No," was thc answer lo thc   'reporter's question.  "Wc aro not   surprised that thc public generally    arc  at length being forced to thc conclusion that Dodd's  Kidney Pills     will  cure    Bright's   Disease.      Wc    have  known it for a long    time ourselves.  The Parker cure is only one of many  of which wc can furnish proofs.  A  SPECIALIST'S PRESCRIPTION.  "Thc troubles  in these cures   have  been made by what is termed a 'patent medicine.'  Had they been made  hy a physician in thc regular     way,  and that physician had been able to  tell    exactly    how he brought    them  about, they would    have been talked  of learnedly from one end of thc country to the other.   But when    people  talk ahout our cures there is a tendency to say, . 'Oh,    that is only    a  patent medicine,advertisement.'  "They forget that" Dodd's Kidney  Pills are the life work of.a doctor.  That they have *bcen uniformly successful in. treating all diseases of the  Kidneys, ;and that thc only feature  in which they diller from regularly  obtained medical advice is that tho  prescription of a specialist is given  the. public at popular prices.   "  " -  NO ROOM FOR DOUBT.  , "Now, you have seen the particulars in thc Parker case. Nobody, can  doubt for an instant that that was a  veritable case pE -the ��������� 'incurable'  'Bright's Disease, neither can anyone  doubt that the 'cure was effected by  Dodd's Kidney Pills and by no other  agency. Of course, n took time and  perseverance; but'thc patient was in  thc last stages of the disease before  ���������she started to use Dodd's Kidney  Pills. Had she started* sooner' thc  work would have been easier; and  the results would have been 'obtained  much more speedily. It was an extreme case and took time." ,  "���������You know of other cases of Bright'  Disease tliat   have   been   cured     by  Dodd's Kidney Pills?" queried the reporter.  The manager walked over to a safe  and produced a bundle of letter's.  Holding them up; he said: "Everyone  of those letters- tells of a case of  Bright's Disease cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills,* and every case has been  thoroughly investigated and verified.  Let me read you a few of them.  ROBT. BOND CURED.  "This one, you see, is signed,  'Robert Bond, Mt. Brydges, Ont.'  You see what he says.

Here's  another letter from the same Robert  Bond, dated May 2nd, 1902. You see  what he says in it. 'The cure is permanent as far as I know. My general  health is good.'  ���������  C. A. HARRIS CURED.  "Here is another case. If you'll  take thc trouble to look at this letter you'll see it is written by the  Postmaster at Lovctt, Ont., Mr. C.  A. Harris. Notice what he says: 'In  1807 I was at the point of death from  Bright's Disease, and was a complete  wreck, could not even dress myself or  turn in my bed, but now I am, I may  say, a well man, and I attribute it  all to Dodd's Kidney Pills.' That's  from a postmaster, a man who undoubtedly knows ,what he is talking  ahout, and there's no uncertain sound  ahout what he says.  CIIAS.  INGRAM CURED.  cured of thc first-stages of pains.'  a.

Nowadays it is  'If you see it in the papers don't believe it.' If we could bring thc people here one at a time and let them  read these letters, or bring them face  to face with thc men and women who  wrote them, our struggle would be  over, for the whole world would admit that Dodd's Kidney Pills will  cure Bright's Disease.

Their pitiable condition, due  innnedialely to laziness and to their inferior physical and mental development  is more remotely due to the presence el  -ibis-hook-worm-dissa������e-among_th-m-for_  generations past. The clay-eaters and  pickle-eaters of North Carolina owe theii  abnormal appetites to uncinariasis, Tha  lary crackers who send their infant children to work in mills have got it, too,  but the children themselves, Dr. Stiles  thinks, profit by the change in their environment.

'A wrious book, on a frivolous subject) by an eminent scholar���������such  6 "The KiM and It_ History." It  ha* been translated into English from  the Danish of Dr. Christopher Nyrop,  professor of romance philology in th*  University of Copenhagen, oy Wllliam-  Frederlck Harvey of Oxford, and, according to the preface, has also been translated into German, Swedish and Russian,  and has gone through two editions in  Denmark. Verily, the history of the  kiss is a matter of universal interest. Dr.  Nyrop presents in tho volume but little  personal opinion; rather ho contents  himself with weaving togethor proverbs  of all peoples of ull times on iho subject of kissing, and gives, in addition,  quotations from tho poets who have  rhymed of kisses���������and thoy ore no small  number! For his quotations he has  hunted in out-of-the-way place*, and has  sought them among the masses as well  as the classes. For Instance, the ladles  of Germany have tho poetical saying  that "n kiss without a beard is like Vespers without the Magnificat," but tho  milkmaids of Jutland express a liko Idea  by tho rough-hewn provrrb thnt "kiBsing  a fellow without a quid of tobacco and  a. beard ia like kissing a clay wall." That  kisses are naughty the ltnlians deny,  saying "that a mouth U none tlio worse  for having been kissed," whilo the French  proverb runs: "BahI two kisses. What  of that! They are exchanged like bullets that miss tho'mark, aud horror is  satisfied," and even cooler-blooded races  agree to that, saying "a kiss can be  washed off," though to this proverb there  is a corollary which runs: "A kiss may  indeed bo washed away, but tha fire in  the heart cannot bo quenched." Of stolon kisses there are many proverbs. "One  returns a stolen kiss," say tho honest  Germans, and the Spanish have the same  idea: "Dost thy mother chide thee for  having given me a kiss? Then take hack,  dear girl, thy kiss, and hid her hold her  tongue." The loarncd author casts a  glance at the proper number of kisses  that ought td be bestowed at one time,  and a page or two lightly touches the  doubtful subject of "the topography of  the kiss." Again, tho various kinds of  kisses���������those cool and tender, or ones  liko those of Ilaflz, whose mistress was  afraid that "his too hot kisses would  char her delicate lips," or those whicli  leave marks behind, against which Are-  thusa warned Lyons 111 a letter���������"Oh,  suffer no young girl to print the mark  of her teeth 011 your neck"���������these arc  all treated. Of such tenor is the hook,  exhaustive almost, it would seem, of the  possibilities of the subject���������on paper.  A Dinner at Ilagnevs'.

To escape a eold leg of mutton  which had haunted me for two evenings,  and which I knew my landlady was at  that moment "laying" only that it might  appear before ino in the more frightful  form of a hash, I took my hat and followed Van Amberg,  "I will give you a dinucr such as yov.  have never eaten before," said he as wc  got into a hansom.

In 1SU8 there appeared  -n a weekly  paper nn  article  headed  "Tlio Coming  Richest  Man  in   tho   World."    It   described how n San Francisco multi-millionaire hermit willed all his possession*  to  his  nude  successor,  who  would  be  found ln England.    Lawyers misapplied  the vast estate and weru imprisoned for  the crime, and then the rightful heir was  discovered and thc hermit's mansion explored.   Down a trap-door into a mysterious pi* f sage the way led .to a large ���������  room  lined   with   gold   ingot*,   to nn-1  other  filled , with   bags  of   gold   dust, j  anu   to   a   massive   iron   door    whicli >  bore a warning that a person forcing it '  wn.-i liable to death.

Tho prospective Croesus was James Albert Marson, at that time cariiing 30s n  week as a merchant's elerk in a Shcllicld  house. A tall, handsome, fairly-educated  man, he found no difiiculty in acting the  part of the owner of millions, lie showed  to his friends copies of the will and documents purporting to entitle hi 111 to a fabulous yearly income, an estate irr '"Ontario, United States," half the size oi  Ireland, and vast quantities of diamond-*  and rubies.  He told them he was entitled to boundless wealth, signed letters "Albert, the  future Lord Sycrston" and "Marson, K.

He retired from  business, installed a telephone, a valet,  a private secretary, bought horses, guns  and fur-lined coats, and was attended  by a retinue of favorites anxious to  please. To somo of them he promised  "staff" appointments���������the boots at tho  largest hotel in the city was to havo the  position of butler at ������2,000 a year, and  his doctor was to have  ������1,500.  All this meant money, and to keep off  his creditors he borrowed on the strength  of his "expectations." Sums from ������3 to  ������250 were lent freely by his friends,  who believed his promises implicitly.  One man advanced as much as ������3,120,  another ������420, nnd many lent smaller  sums. The largest creditor, Mr. Thomas  .Eastwood of Chesterfield,-once received  from ������������������Marson* cheques for ������10,000 and  -������150,000, but he was askedvto return  them for "re-endorsement." Marson's  accounts showed a deficiency of ������5,307,  and he had been living at the rate of  ������1,000 a year.'  ." One of the most curious points about  the story is the methods by whicli Marson duped Eastwood. . On one occasion  he wrote: "Best assured that for 'every  pound I have had from you the same will  be repaid at the rale of ������5,000 for every pound, and an annuity to each of  your children of ������10,000 to accumulate  to their years of discretion."  Later, Marson wrote: "I have already  iigned half a million a year for your natural life, irrespective of your stipend,  while in my service." \  Marson lived in a house of which the  rent wsb 0s per week, yet Eastwood believed'him when he said'that thc.Homo '  Secretary and the Duke of Norfolk wero  coming to dine at his house.

Whatever thc original story was,  he took advantage of it and made untruo  statements to Eastwood, who was a gentleman easily "taken ia.      .      " ^ _ ,  Two Lion Stories. >.ifw- _  Sir Charles Warren, in his recently  published "On the Veldt in the  Seventies," tells two capital lion  stories that he hoard while surveying between the Orange and Vaal  rivers. "A man," he writes, "was driving  in -his bullock wagon one dark night  along a road in the interior, where there  ���������were big game, but he was not fearsome,  because he had several large, fierce dogs  with fcitn that barked at everything they  met. On a sudden the oxen ���������topped,  and, whip thorn as he would, they would  not go on, but as the dogs did not bark,  he drd not think of danger. Ills native  'leader' called out that there was a mule  lying hi tho road In front, and ho wont  forward ond saw what ho thought was a  strange ox lying in front of them. Getting angry at Tlndlng his way wtnpppd,  lie rushed at Ihu beast and gave lt a  good kick, shouting 'Foot nook I' (get  awny). Then arosa a niiijcstiu animal,  which slunk with a roar into tho bush,  lt waa a lion, just deliberating how lie  could make his spring upon one of the  oxen, but the midden on.-dnught of the  man so disconcerted liim that olT ho  went. When tiro driver went back to hi*������  wagon he found all his bravo dogs Iviui;  skulking under tho wagon; tliey could  not bark for fear. The moral of this  story is to put a bold front on' matters  and dangers will lice away. I rather  distrust this story," adds Sir Charles, "as  improperly told. . . . Another version 1 lttivc heard is that lire driver did  irot go up and kick the lion, hut gave it  a good lash with his whip; that seems  to me more probable."  The scoond story Ib as follows: "Somo  Korannas, when out hunting, came upon  an elephant just as thoy .were passing a  lion's lair. The elephant, when he saw  them, made after them, and they, in  their alarm, ran close up lo where thc  lion was, and ha also was disturbed.  Looking round they saw tho lion running, also, but not after them; he win*  runrrirrg witli tlierrr, away from the elephant. After a timo they all got into n  narrow path, whero there was little  room, .and by that time tho Korannas  had got so used to the lion that ono of  them wns bold onough to give him a  push, and say, 'Givo mc mora room to  run."'

'' The Chicago "Tribune" has again prepared, a list of general statistics  gleaned from the happenings of  1002 in Uncle Sam's country. Among  them are crimes of violence, which  embrace murders, suicides and lynch-  ings. The figures, being compiled  from the daily press, are not oOu'inl,  and_probably not complete, since a number of occurrences~in~~eacii���������class-may -  easily have been missed. Sufficient, however, has been gaUlrcrcd to make an examination of it interesting.  The number of murders during the  twelvemonth indicates a recurrence of  tlie wave of homicidal tendencies which  was prominent in the statistics liotwccn  1804 nnd 1897, and which receded after  the latter year. There wero nearly 1,000  more murders in 1002 than in 1001, when  the number recorded was 7,852.  Last year there were also 1,000 more  suicides tlran in the previous year, when  7,245 were reported. The pistol and the  poison routes were chosen by two-thirds  of those ��������� who sought a, path to self -destruction, and carbolic acid was the favorite poison. Despondency, based on  disappointment in love or domestic un-  faoppincss, was the cause generally assigned. Only 07 suicides wore ascribed  to failures in business. It has generally  been conceded by statisticians that tho  proportion of suicides as to sex is about  four males to one female. Last year tire  figures formed a stTong contrast with  previous records. Three times as many  women committed suicide as in 1001. The  figures given are 5,032 males, 3,009 females. Lynchings show some sign of decreasing in number. In the Southern  States there wore 17 more legal executions and 21 fewer lynchings than in  1901. It is to be presumed tlhat many  of the negroes lawfully executed last  year would have been lynched a few  j ears ago in preference. The whole number of executions in 1902 were 144, as  against 118 in the previous year, showing that punishment is keeping up with  the ir.crease in murders. Of the whole  number of men hanged 88 were negroes.  Sunday as a Social Holiday.  In all the larger cities of tho United  States  there   is   nowadays,   no   othei  socal     holiday      equal      to      Sunday.  There are some sorts of diversion that  'aro still forbidden on Suirday by social  conventions.   Nobody ever heard, for instance, of a cotillion on Sunday or n tea  to introduce a debutante.   But there are  gallons of informal tea poured In drawing-rooms every Sunday afternoon, and  ���������there are dinners on Sundi'y night���������formal  dinners  at  home  and  dinners   at  .fashionable restaurants. 'Many hostesses  prefer the latter, and as a result Sunday  ���������night is thc most difficult time of any to  'find tables at a popular restaurant.   In  ���������New York the vogue of tho'restaurant  .is even more pronounced, and it is very  difficult for  people   to   get   tables   at  .Sherry's,  Delmonico's,  or. the  Waldorf-  Astoria. r At* these places a certain number of tables are always kept for guests  who agree to come there to dinner every  Suirday during  the  winter,  or  lot  the  .'waiter know during the afternoon that  tliey -will not.   "Then, on Monday," one  manager- informed  a New  York ,"Sun"  writer,  "the   orders  for   tables-for  the  next Sunday begin to oome in.   If there  happens to be a large party���������six or eight  ���������we sometimes get word two or three  weeks, in- advance." Thafc*-is--necessary.  iThcn, throughout the week the 'orders  , corae in until by Saturday tho two din*  ,ing-rooms nre .filled, and -we could 'seat  'twice as many persons., The orders con-  ���������tinue to come in all day on Sunday, nnd  ,we set tables-in the hall.   That leaves  no place for thc casual guests who are  ���������certain to corae without taking the trou-  .ble to telephone in advance.   They make  jup almost naif tho attendance, and ther6  jmust be room for tlicra.    So we bring  'down tables and chaira from the ball-  iroom upstairs and spread tables in the  men's cafe. Then, with only room 'enough  .to pass between' the tables, every Inch ol  available space is taken." This Continues  'from the middle of October until May.  And during the past five years that I  .havo been in this restaurant, I have no-  iticed  the Sunday night crowd getting  bigger every winter." _______  43  Devety's Warm Vocabulary.

The play itself is strikingly uneven  in character aud many suggestions  have been made lor its improvement.  It has always been considered a mistake for the wives of both Damon nnd  Pythias to be poilrayed of a cowaroly  nature, as a splendid dramatic contrast, could have been obtained by  making lleiinion a regular wife of  Hp*'.rla. willing lo sacrifice her husband  so th.it he did not break his plighted  word to his friend. ������������������The killing of  Dunion's horse by his faithful retainer-  is also very weak, ns it seems strange  that a man occupying the excellent  position of D.tmon should not have  other steeds at'his disposal'.

Particularly-is  this the case in Damon's appeal to the  Senate for the preservation of popular  institutions and the scene outside the  prUon, concluding Act !_ where  Pythias, dc spilt!- the lemptings ot the  disguised 1. iouysius aud lire pleading.**  01 Caianlhe, refuses Lo stain his  honour, and though offered liberty  remains sleadfast as hostage for  Damon's return.  The musical numbers wore all that  could be de-iied. Miss Scott s - first  song "The Shade of the Palm" showed  her voice to great advantage and tlie  crieine "Tommy" was particularly  appropriate to Victoria Day in view  ot" the laic Queen's gieat interest in  the volunteer service. Between the  acts Mr. Gilfroy played sonic fine  musical -?eleel ions, the best of which  v.as perhaps "When Knighthood wa.s  in Flow. 1". which he rendered after  tlie scene in the Senate. Will Yule in  his muck Ijelsartean postures and  paiiLomuie of a country gitl preparing  for the opeia showed himself a  fcenuine comedian and Wm. Blake's  .Scotch da nces raised Lhe "Hoot moil"*  clement lo a high degree of excitement. The people of Kevelstoke will  await with pleasure the return of this  talented company, with even butter  scenery and moie elaborate costumes,  next se.i**'in.  r_r.**mH".vj'i'oi_TMi;_-'f-  CORRESPONDENCE  The following letter, which appeared  in the Nelson '���������...-ibuno", is republished  by I'l'ipiest*.
