In  view of this the following article from  the San Francisco "__.il_-_t.in" wilHie of  ���������interest to-lmiibewiieij-iii-thi*.-vicinity:  "Ii. H. H.-irrimtiii mid .lames.I.

"With the 'many minor holdings  which- Harriman''*.' and liis ^associates  mny .'count'; on, it is s.iid the plan is to  merge the more 'valuable lands controlled 'by the' -Hill roads- and��������� ; tire  Southern Pacific interests into a trust.  The Southern'Paeifle'.. -principal holdings arerepresentedin tire grant r;rf 10  miles on each side* of its; road, lying  between the southern boundary line of  Oregon itnd a point .smith of Portland  and consist of/about; orre million.acres  of firand sugar pine.

"With the lands of the Hill and tiro  Harriman roads and those of Walker-,  Weyerhaeuser and others in Washing-  Ion, Oregon, Idaho aud California un  der ttontrol, Harriman arrd his associates would be in a position' to control  the lumber market of the world.*'  A great mistake has, however, been  made in supposing that control of the  Western States will result in a monopoly of the lumber industry. British  Columbia today has more timber than  Oregon, Idaho arrd Washington combined. The vicinity of Revelstoke  could furnish billions of feet irr a very  ���������short tiure. The average productive  c.ip-ibility near by is about ten million  feet to the square nrile'and its value,  in accessible locations has beerr proved  by several recent deals to he $1 per  thousand on the ground. This iigrire  will he passed in thc near future as  several leading lumbermen ars coming  to the city in a short time and mutt  have timber. Their-limits in Michigan  arrd Wisconsin have been depleted and  ���������now the mills must be moved. They  cannot obtain limits in the Western  ���������States���������and-must��������� thcrefore-comc to  this Province. The coast larrds being  now practically out of the market tire  only available reserve is the interior,  fir the valuable stretches of the Upper  Columbia, Arrow lake, the Lardeau  and .Lillooet tliey will Und an enormous supply but "will have to pay nt  least the figure mentioned for it. It is  possible that before winter thi.s price  will be exceeded by 'l'i per cent as  every available limit has beerr located  and in cases where tire lairds are not  held by wealthy syndicates, they hit  in the hands of local men who appreciate their value.  Union Picnic  A committee went to Albert''Canyon last 'Saturday and located a first-  class picnic ground. Arrangements,  have been made to have see-saws and  swings fixed up, together .with tents,  and every necessary '."accommodation.  It is liardly necessary to dilate on the  merits of Albert Canyon as a picnic  resort, but mention' might be made; of  the excellent fishing in the .immediate  vicinity, also the .'mineral swimming  baths, which, at considerable expense,  have been put into first-class shape.  The bath is 2o feet by 18 feet antl' five  feet deep,������������������' with a bathhouse and  dressing room built completely over  it."

Annual Meeting of Revelstoke  Hospital Society��������� Directors'  and Financial Repoiis���������New  Directorate.  The old council chamber was crowded to the doors on the occasion of the  Hospital annual meeting on _lloii<Iay  evening last. Thos. Kilpntrick, the  president, occupied Hie chair and A, 15.  Phipps, secret.���������u-y-lrea.siirer of the institution, acted as .Secretary of the  meeting. Among the audience were  F. McC.irty, vice-president, also C. .1.  Wilkes, G. S. .Mi-Carter-, J. .McLeod,  C. F. Liinduia.-k ami other- directors.  -Afler a   lew  introductory remarks  the chair-man called upon the secretary  to read the Annual   Report which was  I as follows:  l>llll_t'l'(l-(S  AX.VL'AL   IIISI'OIST.  lhe l-iivelui-*** have much pleasure  irr submitting the .''How ing report of  tlie work accomplished by the Society  during the pa.st year, the second of its  existence, arrd the first -since the bos  pital was opened.  ritiei*-.u*i*_.  1 .iere was presented to you at the  last annual meeting a very full report  of the operations of the society up to  that dale, shewing that a very complete and modern structure had been  eroded and partially furnished and  was ready for the reception of patients,  and as all matters regaiding the organization of the society arrd the erection of the hospital were gone into in  that report it will be unnecessary to  refer to them here.  There was, however-, a large amount  of work to be done, the hospital required equipping with modern surgical  instruments arrd appliances and addr*-,  tTonal furniture, the appointment of a  nursing and mei.ical staff required  attention, a scheme had to be evolved  to secure adequate patronage, and a  thousand and oue things attendant  upon tbe launching of an important  public institution required tire attention of your directors.  KQUIP.-EXT AND   1'UKXISIIIXG.  During the pas. year the iurnishirrg  of the hospital has been completed  and we now have accommodation for  fifteen patients arrd fori* nurses. The  liospi-al has been well equipped with  .su-.-gi.cal,,. instruments and appliances.  Altogether a total of $](K.7.1������_ has been  expended upon'these tvo items.  HOSPITAL GHOUXI.S.  . The grounds surrounding the hospital have been levelled, sown irr grass  and .fenced, and a small, kitchen garden  provided. A considerable portion of  the expense ' of these improvements  was collected thvough private, subscriptions. It is the policy of the Board to  provide suitable shade trees throughout the grounds and the carrying out  of this policy is respectfully recommended to tlie incoming board.  IIU H.DIXGS.  No building has been done during  the past year none h.aving.beerr required. The hospital has, however, oir  one or more occasions, recently, beerr  filled and there is little doubt that it  will be necessary in the near future to  provide increased accommodation particularly in the men's public ward.'  The question of the erection of an  isolation hospital has also been under  discussion and it is the opinion of the  board that with proper assistance fronr  the City Council and from the Provincial Government this work should be  carried out. The advisability of establishing a maternity v. awl outside i f  the hospital proper is another matter  is priring attention, but it has been  thought better to leave all these im  provements for the consideration of  the new directors.  SYSTEM  01" MAINTENANCE.  After mature consideration the  board���������decided-thai lire bestluetllod of  securing remunerative patronage for  the hospital would be thc adoption of  a plan whereby the hospital would  guarantee lo the employees of the C.  P. I.. arrd the various lumbering and  other industries in Revelstoke and the  vicinity, hospital accommodation, medical al tendance arrd medicine in return  fora.smallmonthly payment fronr each  employee, arrd in pursuance of this  plan contract:**, were errtered into with  the employees of the Revelstoke Lumber Co. I_td. orr the 1st. September.  lZ'M, the Columbia River Lumber Co.  Ltd.. on the 1st. October, 1S.'J2. the  Fred Robinson Lumber Co. Ltd.. on  1st November-. 190*2, and of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and the  Yale-Columbia Lumber Co. Ltd., on  the ,1st. December. 1902. The plan  met with 'great..success, .and with the  Government.-grant..*!'forms the backbone of our revenue, the other sources  being private subscriptions, the fees of  ordinary pay patients and the sale of  hospital tickets.  '.MEDICAL HOARD.  ���������'.'. Upon the adoption of the contract  plan outlined above it became necessary to provide, aud pay sufficient  medical men to attend to the wants of  those for whom we undertook to care.  Our first 'plan was to divide the receipts from these contracts wilh the  three' doctors who did the work but  this system, proving both costly and  cumbersome was afterwards changed  and a resident medical officer and two  assistants appointed at a stipulated  salary. This plan proved much more  workable arid is no doubt the right  one. One of the assistants has lately  left the city and the appointment of a  successor will require the new board's  attention.   .*���������*.'������������������'  NURSING  STAFF..  The nursing staff at present consists  of a matron and three, nurses provided  by the Victorian Order of Nurses under  the arrangement outlined in the last  annual report. The hoard have rro  reason to complain of the cflleieney of  the muses provided by the Order arrd  the ar.iingement appears*to hen mo t  satisfactory orre.  WORK   DONE.  The   amount of -work   done by the  hospital   has   been   much larger than  wa.s anticipated  and   is constantly increasing and  amply  proves the necessity of a first   class hospital at Revelstoke.     You will observe from the report   of   the   medical  superintendent  that   iro   less   than "_(>_*5 hospital days  treatment   have   been   given     to  218  patients since  the 8th August,   If )2.  the date the first patient was admitted  to the hospital, besides  wlir,clr a large  number   of    nut-paticnis   have   been  treated   (here   having been __.'.? visits  from that class of patients.     You will  also  observe from the financial statement that a   considerable   amount of  diM rict nursing has been dorre, it being  the policy of the director's lo allow the  district   mirsu   to   attend  to cases at  their-   home.*,   whenever   she   carr   he  spared from the hospital.  FINANCIAL.  It i.s our pleasant duty  to report the  finances of  the  hospital   in a healthy  condition; the last financial statement  submitted   lo you  shewed that thi-re  wa.s   owing   to   ihe hospital's hankers  the sum of   .$:_<._'., while the total liabilities were .$3.(i9.f)0.      ln addition to  this there  was  immediately requii-ei.  at. least fjiTjf) to  complete  the furnish,  ing and equipping of lire hospital and  ���������j^i-iO to   insure  the  building and con  terrts, a total of i-oughly$l.*H)i). .Agains'  this we had unpaid subscriptions $1170  and   cash   $125.51.      There was also a  prospect of   a  further grant of !.2U..(J  lronr     the     Provincial    Government  which, however, we   were   unable   to  secure.

(Continued orr  last Page.)  ;0F ST.''PETER  Are Now Held by Cardinal Sarto  Who Was Elected Pope on  Tuesday.���������A Sketch of His  Career.  Rome, Au-_j. ..���������Cardinal _t.ucelii,  Secretary of Apostolic Kriefs, announced to the crowd at St. Peter's  this morning that Cardinal Sarto hud  been elected Pope and that he had  taken the name of Pius X.  At ten minutes after 12 this afternoon Pope Pius X. appeared inside the  balcony of the Basilica and blessed the  populace amid the acclamations of an  enormous crowd assembled upon the  Piazza.  Joseph Sarto, Patriarch of Venice,  was born-atllies.se, l.ioce.eof Treviso,  in the north of Italy, on June 2nd,  1S.5, anil was educated at the Senrr-  nary of his Diocese and at the Sacra  The'ologia, Rome. His career has  been that of a parish priest, spent  almost wholly in the north of Italy.  Sarto was made Patriarch of Venice  in 1801 and created and proclaimed  Cardinal on June 12th. ISO'-!, arrd has  for his titular Church in Ronre St.  Rarnado. He is a great preacher-,  fairly well known as a writer and  under him Churclriirteresisin-Venice  have prospered. He is a member of  the Congregations of Hishops arrd  Regulars, Mac-red Riles, Indulgence  and Sacred Relics and Studies.  I'Yorn a recent article by l������\ Marion  Crav-ford, who i.s intimately acquainted with the Korean Catholic Hierarchy  in Rome, we quote the following  extract:  " Cardinal Snrto was talked of in  Italy when, orr his preferment to'the  Venetian Patriarchale irr 1S.I1, he  encountered a determined opposition  on the. pnrtof the Italian government  before.Ire could take possession o." his  See. - The. ('ovcrmucub maintained  that the patriarchate wits part of the  King of Italy's patronage, and that it  was the King's right to present Iris  own candidate. The difficulty which  ensued was in reality solved, or  shelved, ��������� because Cardinal Sarto,  tlrou;**h" chosen by the Pope, was a  favorite with the ItiiK:vii'..Government  aird with King Hurrrbevfc himself���������a  rather singular case in Italy. The  Cardinal has therefore ruled his  diocese undisturbed ' during the last  ten years, beloved ,.by"-;*:.Catliolics,  esteenici". by the GovernmeJi and  respected by his.enemies. Under his  sway, the. -Catholic inst'itu-ions of  Venice have "thriven exceedingly! and  the Cardinal's piety,'- combined-' with  his very noteworthy common sense;  lias given him the .reputation..of being  an ideal bishop."  Hospital Directors.  The newly elected directors will hold  sr meeting at the Hospital this evening  at 8 p. ni.,   when the  president,   vice-  Cresident and secretary-treasurer will  e elected. At least two of the officers will be the same as last year. The  first general meeting will take place  on Monday next, August 8th, at the  same time and place.  At Friday's regular meeting of the  City council the -Mayor- arrd all the  aldermen except Aid. Hume started in  on business promptly at S o'oclock.

Almost unconsciously he took up from  ibis 'tsk a paper lying 'there and his  (���������*������������������������ .yes fell upon Katrina Trask's  fcm.'s poem, and lie read these words:���������  Lie down and sleep,  Leave it with God to keep  This sorrow which is part  ,       Xow. of thy heart.

He went home and slept in peace.  3He arose the next morning, refreshed  and full of power. It was the Sab-  ���������bath, and setting himself to work with  sew devotion, ilis boy was brought to  trust in the Saviour, and was redeem-'  ���������ed from his sin that very day..  - There are tw������ thoughts suggested  hy our text, and by this story which  ���������3 bave told to illustrate it. The first  3 have already indicated; that is, that  ���������aseftjl service most always has iu  foundation in personal fjrith in God.  trhe man who trusts God is at peace:  Iflie man who is worried and fretted  ���������nd desperately anxious cannot serve  you much. He is too worried: about  Iris own affairs. It is the man. whose  Sieart is stayed on Go:!, whose faith is  ���������ure and steadfast. Who has an . in���������  ���������exhaustible fountain of good cheer iu  liis own soul, who can give you comfort and inspire your confidence in God  f������lren you are in trouble.  It is also true that only the man  ���������������?ho trusts God has a proper appreciation of the desirability of serving  ���������others. The man who loves and trusts  the Heavenly Father, by that very fact  la; his love and sympathy for his fdl-  Jon**-_tien deepened and .made more  ���������"Kcr-.d. I������c feels that he is not only  "helping his fellow-men. but is pleasing God,' and is, in thc only'way he  can, making some return for the infinite blessings and mercies of God to  iim.  The other thought suggested by our  theme is that service is necessary in  ���������order that we may keep our faith and  trust. We will not continue to get thc  Toy and gladness which come from a  Jiving Faith in God unless wc do good.  -Tru*=t is not given to us to fold up in a  mat-kin and put away for a keepsake.  ������ It was Paul's great joy as he neared  -the end of his life that he had "kept  ���������flie faith." But he did not keep it by  ���������putting it away in the safe deposit  ���������s-rzult of his own inner consciousness.  He kept it by telling it to everybody  le met on the street, by carrying it  .rom land to land, and preaching it  nnder every conceivable circumstance  unto all sorts and conditions of men.  And so thc only way wc can keep  tthat kind of faith and trust in God that  ���������vill be a fountain of good chcir and  ������nng in our hearts is by serving our  ���������fellow-men with unselfish love,  PIE GOING OUT OF  FASHION,  At Leal.

Tbe pointed buttonhole patterr  King Edward VII. was not the first  English Sovereign lo go to Rome, says  Thc  London   Chronicle,   although   wc  must go back a very long time to find  a King who visited    thc Eternal City  during  his  reign.     King    Acthclwulf  went on a pilgrimage to Rome in 855  with his son Alfred,  to offer the tribute  of  Peter's  pence   to  Pope   Leo  IV.   He spent a whole year there, according to   William  of    Malmcsbury,  and restored the English school which  had been burnt down a few years previously.      It was situated in a quarlcr  of the  town near  St.   Peter's, where  thc Saxon pilgrims resided. For Prince  Alfred' this was  not thc first visit to  Rome, as he had been there    in S53.  when the same Pope had anointed him  King as a presage of his future Kingship.      Canute made a pilgrimage to  Rome in   1026-7,  and  assisted  at  thc  coronation of the Emperor Conrad by  Pope John  XIX.     He  sent  a  letter  home to thc Archbishops, Bishops and  all  thc  English   people,  in   which  lie  described  all  the  holy   places  he  had  visited and his honorable reception by  the Pope, and slated that he had made  a vow to reign well and amend whatever he  had  done  amiss  as  a  ruler.  This  document    still    exists.      Since  Canute no other King of England has  visited Rome until Edward VII., but  three Princes  who  laid  claim  to  thc  throne are buried in that city.    After  the failure  of the 1715 rebellion    the  "old   Pretender"   lived   at   Rome   and  died there, and was    accorded    royal  honors by the Pope.    Prince Charles  Edward was less fortunate, and Benedict XIV. refused to recognize his sovereignty,   so   he   retired   to   Florence,  and  consoled  himself  by  sticking  C.  R.  on the weathercock of his house,  where thc letters may be seen to this  day.    His brother Henry was a Cardinal in Rome, and.on  the death    of  Prince Charles Edward he had a medal  struck, "Henricus Nonus Magriac Bri-  tanniae Rex."  For the Farmer.

Next slip a slender, sharp  knife between the skin and flesh of  the neck, run It round carefully till  tire skin is loosened. Next* slip the  skin down over the neck and cut the  neck off to within an inch of the body.  Having removed the crop, turn the tur.  key on its back and cut on* the legs  at the first joint above the feet. Next  singe the hairs from the turkey and  pick out the pin feathers.

Cut  TEe^gilza������dr=nearirirn^  entrails, clean them well and put them  In a stew pan. Pour cold water over  them and set it with the stuffing  through the gash cut to draw it. Sew  this gash up and truss the legs down;  then stuff the hollow of the breast  through the neck and sew this up, and  truss the wings down.

There is. continually coming from all  sides the inquiry as to the proper  amount by weight or measure to feed  fowls per day. To answer this question properly one must consider that  it takes more to sustain a Brahma  than a Bantam, and that a Minorca  will naturally eat more than a Leghorn; or, in other words, it will take  more to maintain a fowl of five pounds  and over than it will to provide fully  for those of smaller size. ' Also, the  more active a fowl may be, the more  energy will be expended,.and this.must  be provided for in the food sujjply, as  must be the other points of solids and  fluids of the system and'its products.  The average food needed for a hen  is about four ounces per day of all  kinds combined���������-the smaller birds a little less���������those larger than medium of  average a little more. Of this.>two-  thirds should be grain of some kind, or  its products, the rest meat, from one-  fourtli to three-fourths of an ounce  per. day. Meat for the hen is like oats  for the horse; it gives better returns  than-any other food of the same components by analysis. The protein in  meat is more useful to thc hen than is  any other kind. Wc might cite a flock  of hens whose living for a whole winter was mostly of meat; in fact, theiy  had all they would cat of it all winter  long. It was boiled meat, and the  only other food they had much of the  time was ground oats and corn mixed  w.th the soup from the boiled meat.  These hens would go and help themselves to the meat, and had one full  ictd of the mash at noon. .* This'was  j an experiment that all could not fol-  i low, but it produced more eggs than  ! We have ever known to come from the  ; same number of hens���������about 500.  The last feed at night to be thrown  I into the litter for them to scratch for  i should average about two to two.and  one-half ounces of mixed'.-��������� grain for  i each hen. If wc mix our grain food  . of the small grains, this should be  ; about enough, as the average goes; but  I ol all things see to it that they have  ��������� enough fully to satisfy them, forsome  j her.s will eat much more than others.  i For green food in winter nothing is  I better than, alfalfa. The hens love the  J leaves of this kind of clover. The  ' manner of curing and its natural green  ' tint  attract  and   please   the   fancy  of  ��������� the hen, and the benefit gained from  ' its use is well worth its cost, even if  we must buy it in bales.  For hens, the feeding vaiuc of    al-  ' falfa_is= greater than_ of red clover, as^  fl-fey only eat the. leaves ann "ni5T"the  stems.    They  gain  more  than  double  the  benefit  from  this  that   can  come  j from thc clover.    As a  nutritive it is  '. of double value compared witb clover  ' hay, and its protein value is fully dou-  , ble that of clover.   This should be wcil  ; considered by all who look for fresh-  ; laid   eggs   another   winter.     Oats   arc  ! of such value to hens that we arc sor-  j ry to give them up; but wc cannot af-  ; ford to disregard  the caution  of  Dr.  ; Edward  Moore,  thc  able  veterinarian  1 of The Country Gentleman, who states  j that oats in thc hull will so injure and  ! inflame   thc   lining   of   the     crop     of  i fowls  as  to cause death.    It  is safer,  therefore, to feed oats ground or hulled.     Hulled   oats  can  be  obtained  at  about $2 per roo lbs.    As it will take  four   bushels   by  measure   to  produce  100 lbs. of hulled oats, thc cost is about  equal   to  its   increased  feeding    value.  The hull of thc oat has no food value  for thc hen���������in fact, the less rough or  indigestible  food  the  hen   must  grind  up ille better for her.    If for no other  reason than this, hulled oats should be  i.scd  in  place  of oats  In  the    hull.���������  Country Gentleman..  A "Fine" Squadron.

The Care of Working Horses  The teams need and deserve special  care when work is tire hardest. Like a  man, thc horse is at his best only when  he eats and sleeps well, and feels comfortable in general. A team at heavy  work requires liberal [ceiling. Oats and  cracked corn are a good mixture for  hard-working horses- Feed with good,  mixed hay, and at regular hours, three  days a day.- A little green food given  after work is over will do no harm.  Add a little salt. A full hour should be  allowed for the noon meal. Card and  brush daily and sponge shoulders after the day's work. Chafed places  should be washed and rubbed with vaseline or tar ointment. A piece of strong  gum plaster will protect a sore place  from further wear. The cause of saddle galls may be removed by side-padding and raising tire saddle. Collars  cause much strain when ploughing and  hauling heavy loads, and they should  fit well and be fully padded. In case  of.*sorcs under tire collar, used instead  a breast strap for a while���������American  Cultivator.  An Interesting Experiment.  Any farmer using chemicals for fertilization can try a simple experiment  at small cost which will be of interest  the whole season through, and at the  same time will convey information that  may be of great value in further cropping.

The following interesting experiments were tried last year at an English farm school :���������  First series���������Eggs preserved in lime-  water made as follows: Add to every  gallon of water three-quarters of a  pound of fresh lime, shake well, and  let it stand for twenty-four hours, then  pour off and use the clear liquid. Three  weeks after the eggs have been put in,  add sufficient fresh lime to make the  water cloudy. The great object is to  get the eggs as "soon as laid, not two  or three days old. The eggs were  taken on May 21 and opened on Nov.  12.    Result: Air perfectly fresh.  Second series���������Make lime-water as  above and add one ounce of cream of  tartar and five ounces of common salt  Eggs taken June 9, opened Nov. is.  Result : All perfectly fresh.  Third series���������To one gallon of hot  water add one pound of "water-glass,"  when cool it is ready for use. Eggs  taken May 27 and opened Nov. 12. Re  suit : All perfectly fresh. A few were  kept in the mixture for one to three  weeks only. Result : Fresh, but air  space in eggs larger than in thc others,  Fourth series���������Eggs smeared lightly with'vaseline. Taken May 14, opened Nov. 12. Result: Musty flavor,  though not bad.  One important factor in all egg preserving is to keep them in a cool place  until required.  Bees as Fertilizers.

The result has been that the abundance  of fruit set this year is quite abnormal  ���������the best crop yet obtained. In former  years there has been no lack of blossom, but a much smaller percentage of  set fruit. Messrs. Craze, as a result of  the experiment, have dispensed with  camel-hair brushes and other methods  of mixing pollen, and the bees are now  allowed to do the work solely. In the  strawberry, cucumber and other houses  equally satisfactory results have bean  obtained. It is thc'! opinion of those  who have experimented that the increased yield of fruit obtained is sufficient compensation alone for the cost  and trouble of bee-keeping, not to mention the honey yield which is obtained. The results of these experiments  have been watched with interest in thc  ���������outhwest, and other gardeners and  fruit-growers arc adopting this method  of fertilization.���������English paper.   _JB   Somo peoplo rend th' probabirtle������.. every  day so's they'll bo able to say "I .lust  thought ns much," In caso th' weather  don't agree with th' probabii'tlcs. which  bi ot'en th' case���������B.flections ot Unolo  Iko  They Used Him Badly.

It is understood  that Mr. Stanford would havo preferred  to let the matter- drop, but the War  Oflice was determined, and���������; after much  correspondence between Lord Roberts,  whoso strong views on "ragging" .are well  known, and Lord Kitchener, a oourt-mar-  tlal of the officers implicated has been  decided upon. The facts of this extraordinary case are briefly as follows:���������A.  party of officers staying, at. tho Mount  Nelson Hotel gave a dance on Christmas  Eve, 1901. -Mr. Stanford's name .was : on  tha dance committee, and for some unexplained reason certain persons declared  that; they would not attend tire dance  unless Mr. Stanford was removed from*  tho committee. Tho only reason given  privately at the moment was that Mr.  Stanford was a: pro-Boor, but thore was  no ground whatever tor tiro belief, and  Mr. Stanford, being innocent of-any offence implied against him. atteridod the  ball. In the early hours of the morning  about eight officers decoyed Mr. (Stanford into a room, where they shaved oft  half of his moustache, stripped him, and  afterwards twice threw him into a. pond  in the garden. He was released at 6 a.m.  after, being compelled to sign a paper  stating that the affair was a joke,, and  was 111 for some time in consequence of  the treatment to which he had been subjected.

In connection with King Edwarfl's visit  to Paris, it Is interesting to read from  Sir Theodoro Martin's life of the Prince  Consort, King: Edward's father, an account of Queen Victoria's visit to Parts  In August, 1S6-. The author quotes extensively from her Majesty's diary of tho  events. He notes that "No English Sovereign had sot foot within Paris since  Henry VI., and ho had come thero claim-  Inn to bo its King." Internal politics  made the advisability of tho English  Sovereign's visit ei matter of doubt. Her  Majesty's note that tho clothing of the  French soldiers were hotter mado and.  too���������brass orros���������much finer, tempts a  smllo. Ono wondors how much of thoso  events is recalled to "Bortuo" on hla  present visit.  Starting from Osborne at 5 ln tho morning of tho ISth, tho Victoria and Albert,  which had just been completed, reached  Boulogno about half-pust 1. and advanced  slowly up tho harbor, amidst tho checrs.  of tho crowd upon tho long pior, wlrtutt  was lined throughout with troops. On  tho quay stood tho Emperor, surrounded  by a brilliant retinue, under a broiling  sun. whilo tho tedious process of warping  tlio hugo vessel to tho shore was can-rod  out. "At length tho bridge was adjusted.  Tho Emporor stepped across, and I mot  him half way, and embraced him twice,  after which ho led me on shore, amidst  acclamations, salutes and ovory sound of  joy and respect. Wo four (tho Queen,  Prince. Prince of Wales and Princess  Royal) entered a landau carrlago and.  drovo through the crowded and docor-  atod streets.   ...  "Tho vlow from our rooms and balcony  of Paris, lit up by the evening light, with  tho Arc de Trlompho rising conspicuously  ln the distance, had a marvellous effect.  I sat drawing on tho balcony, and took a  Ilttlo sketch of tho very pretty avenue  which leads down Into tho town.

Mny. Heaven bless and prosper it!"  Of a "nice cosy little dinner," her Majesty, wrote that tho -Emperor, speaking;  of the Crimean campaign, "lamented bitterly the want of; Invention and energy  in both our commanders. ; He then spoko  very,openly and frankly of the defects or  our Generals, and* v** told > him equally  frankly; what was objected to In his; and  nothing couldbe more satisfactory* than  the conversation, or more straightforward  or honest than the Emperor's observations and propositions. It,was just as If  we had one and the same army; and so,  in fact, It is, but.it Is very pleasant to  find this so in another Sovereign."  Of the farewell at Boulogne, where her  Majesty, reviewed 3(3.000 troops, and.the  British squadron saluted tho Emperor,  her Majesty wrote:���������"Indeed, It was one  of the not least remarkable of the many  striking events arid contrasts with former  times which took place during this visit,  that at this very place, on these very  sands,: Napoleon: I. re\*iewed his army  which was to invade England.

Discussing the cause of tho low wagesi  paid to women, Mrs. John Van Vorst, in  "The Woman Who Toils," says :���������"In the  factory where I worked men and women  wero employed for ten-hour days. Tho  women's highest wages were lower than  tho men's lowest. Both were working as  hard as they possibly could. The women  were doing menial work, such as scrubbing, which the men refused, to do. Tho  men were properly fed at noon; tho women satisfied themselves with cako and  pickles. Why was this 7 It is of: courso  impossible to generalize on a single factory. I can only relate the conclusions I  drew from what I saw myself. The wages  paid by employers, economists tell us, aro  fixed at the level of bare subsistence.  This level and its accompanying conditions aro determined by competition, by  the nature and number of laborers talcing  part in the competition. In the masculine  category__I_rnet:butJiono_class_.o__-.oompRtl-_  Tor: tho bread-winner. In the feminino  category I found a variety of classes:  the bread-winner, the semi-bread winner,  tho woman who works for luxuries. This  inovltably drags the wage level. Tiro self-  supporting girl is in competition with tho  child, with the girl who lives at home and  makes a small contribution to tho household expenses, nnd wilh the girl who is  supported and who spends all her money  on her clothes. It Is this division of purpose which takes the 'spirit' out of them  us a class.

CHAPTER XVL  l'or the first few minutes after hei  awful discovery, Norma believed that tho  man lying luotronless, bleeding on the  ground, was Astley himself, thc inun sha  loved, the man she would have given her  life tot. With difiiculty she raised the  inert form, aud summoning all her  strength, turned him so that he lay with  upturned face, resting on her knee.  The darkness under the trees, leafless  as tbey still were, was almost; complete:  her eyes were dim with scalding tears.  In epite of these tilings, however, Norma  quickly began to have doubts us to the  man's identity; she felt hia features,  with trembling hand, passed her lingers  over bis hair, his moustache. Thon a  subdued cry rose to her lips, a cry ol  awful, frightened, self-reproachful thankfulness. More by' instinct than by sight  or touch ehe assured herself that, whoever tho dead mail might be, it was not  Astley. And then there followed another discovery, so strange, so weird,  that it sent a shudder through her from  head te foot. The dead man's coat and  waistcoat had been torn open, no doubt  by the unknown murderer.  Whether the object of the murder had  been robbery she could not cell: but .hat  .another hand 'than hers had already  - touched Uie body and then flung it dowr  again, face to the earth, she felt sure.  * Even while she remained quite still foi  a moment, petrified with horror at whal  'she bad found out. Norma heard cer  tain alight sounds in ber neighborhood  which told ber ehe was not so entirely  alone as she had supposed. -  Fearing tliat Uie murderer waa at  hand, she bud the dead man down, got  up and listened.  The sounds bad  ceased.    Seized  with  fright, Norma called aloud:  "Help I    Help!"  She feared that she was too far awny  from the cottages for her cries to he  hoard; but she thought that, in any case,  '.hey might alarm the unseen murder ei  iif it were he whose stealthy movement***  ahe hoard, and cause him to take to  Might  After  a   few  moments,  during  which  'And I dourr't want to  be irr for 110a  scrape," snid the hid dosiprcdly*.  And he deliberately held ber fast by  tha arm until the sounds which indicat  ed tire ���������presence of another person in thi  wood with theni had died away.  Whon there was again dead silonci  around, thc lad let her go, and crying  abruptly: "Good-bye, missis!" he wai  over the wall, and"across the road anc  over the stile into ehe lields oir the other  side liefore Norma Jrad recovered her  breath.  ������t waa with considerable difficulty that  she got over in her turn, having to tin.  a spot where the irregularities in thc  surface of the stone wait enah'ed her to  secure a footing. By Uro time she reached  Uie cottages there wus no sight or sound  of any human being hc.ides herself.  Having told her story in as few wordi  as possible to her landlady, Norma was  able to take breath wliile thc old woman  roused her neighbors. Tho second cottage of the group contained a working  family, of whom the father and two  growmg-up sons were quickly on the  alert? Norma begged that oue of them  would go for a doctor, but in the first  place they all three, with a lantern, went  into the plantation, guided by the best  direction ehe could give, to see for themselves What had -happened.  The women followed prescntiy, in a  body. And while Uiey all weirt together  in) 6ea*rch of this gruesome sight, Norma  went to the third cottage, in tho hope of  getting there a messenger w*ho would go  to the town for a doctor, and to Uie police-station to put the authorities on the  nlert.  But Ihero elie met with no response.  The door was opened by a good-looking  woman of three or four and twenty, who  said ber 'husband was asleep after a hard  day's work, and she could not disturb  hrm for auoh errands; and she shut the  door curtly in Norma's face, being evidently in a great state of trepidation  over tbe tragedy, whioh had apparently  reached ber ears already.  There was nothing to be done, therefore, but to" wait until the three male  members of the next household had satisfied their curiosity; and Norma stayed  at the door of 'her lodging until one oi  the lads came out of the wood by way of  the wail.  Ho said he was on his way to thc  town, but added that there was no need  for any doctor to pronounce  that  the  man was dead.  "Who is he?" asked Norma faintly.  *'I doan't reghUy know, missis.

Looking up, she made out against the  dark night sky that there was a hunuin  being perched in the fork of one of the  trees.  Again   sbe   uttered   a   cry,   convinced *  that it was the murderer who had taken  refuge up there: but as she ran towards  .the wall, a rough boy's voice called out  to ber: '  "Hey, missis, doan't be afeard! I'll  not hurt thee!"  Perceiving that tho voice betrayed at  least aa much terror as she was feeling  herself, Norma stopped, and looked up  again.  "Who  are  you?" 'cried  she.      "Come :  down, oome down, and run for help."      |  ''Doan't go, doan't tha go," cried tho  moustache, and a mark over one cy.  like an owd eut."  Norma could scarcely repress a cry-  She know now who-he was. The murdered man was Tom l.ogersori, the witness Astley wanlcd!  She felt sick and faint at this discovery. She did' not know clearly what  vogue foreboding of unexpected evil  filled her mind and clouded her  thoughts: but she crept indoors and up  ���������to her room, shaking with nervoas dread  Aslley had'.been in the plantation only  a few minutes before. Had he heard  anything of the affair? What would he  say when be learnt t'he irew ? Norma  felt that she mu_t seek bim c t arrd let  him know the truth; and con as she  decided on this, her heart .**ank, for slit-  know that now this man wa*. dead, ali  hopes of happiness wiln Astley wero further off Uran ever.  And she pointed to the dark mass of  trees behind her.  "Murdered! Murdered!" He kept repeating Ure word, staring at her as if he  could not understand her.  "Yes. They've gone for a doctor and  the police. Will you come?' Will you  come aud see?"  He moved beside her liko an automaton, only repeating the one word "Murdered!" to himself as if in a dream. Norma grew alarmed, and presently stopped  short, and made him stop too.  "Why do you speak like that?" sho  naked. "Bo you know something? Guess  somofhing!"  He pulled himself together, and answered her gruvcly enough:  "It doesn't do to make guesses in a  case like this. Come, tell me, how did  you come to krrow of it? Where have  you beerr?"  Norma remembered, with an effort,  that her hiding-place wus a secret to  him.  "Never mind. Don't ask," said she. "I  don't wish yon.to know. Only you may  be sure of this: if you should ever want  nre, I shall not be far oil."  He advanced his face very near to her  in Ure darkness.  "My little, passionate-hearted, wild  girl," said he tenderly, "when it comes to  an omcrgency you seem to be bravor,  more sure-wittcd than 1!"  Norma gave a trembling sigh.  "I hope I am learning to be wiser,  less foalish at least, less wicked, than I  was before I know you," said sbo softly.

"No, no, I'll wait, I'll wait for you to  come down," answered she, in a hoarse  Mid tremulous voice.

"In the  meantime I'll go and tell Sir Astley what  haa happened. Show me the way through  the wood," she added nervously, "so that  I may lose no time."  The man assented, helped her over the  wall again, and accompanied her.'as far  as the edge of the plantation on the other side. Norma thanked him breathlessly, and sped through the intervening  trees and shrubs, starting at every slightest sound, until she come back to_the  house She had left that morning.

Will you always staj  away? Will you always keep me off!  When you know that there is nothing  between us but a mountain of falsehood  deception and lies?"

And you must believe it too:  arrd in tbe .meantime you must be bravo;  and you must put. yourself in Mr. Capper's hands, and be patient if you eau.  "Capper's gone to London," said Astley.   "I saw him off this evening."  "And did you walk back from the station ovor the fields?" a-sked Norma soft-  "Yes."' He turned upon hor quickly  "IIow did you know?*'  But ahe would not tell him. She did  not want liim to know exactly where  ber 'hiding-place waa. So they walked in  silence through thc tangle of brushwood,  guided by the voices and moving lanterns of "the group, which hod now become a large one, to the place where tin  tragedy bad happened.  They made way for the baronet and  held their lanterns up for him to see the  dead mnn, who was lying just where Norma had left bim, bn the short grass.  "A stranger, sir, I think," said a man  who was kueeling on one knee beside the  body, raising his lantern for tbo gentleman to sec the dead man's face.  Astley said nothing, but he shuddered  and turned away with a frown of perplexity on his face.  "Who was the first person who found  this out?" asked he shortly, with a  searching look round.  "I was," said Norma, in a hoarse voice.  "I saw a flash and heard a report, and  then another flash, and another report,  and a cry, oh, a horrible cry!"  A shudder went round the group, and  the women and girls gathered nearer together in tire darkness.  "What!" cried he, aghast.  Norma went on: "I was outside, in tht  road; when I got over the wall, I could  see no one, until���������until I came upon���������  this."  Her voice sank.  Everybody was crowding round, listening intently, wheu the noise of a horse'.  boofs suddenly distracted their attention, and in another minute the cry of  "The doctor!" went round.  All made way for the medical man.  but Astley made a gesture of annoyance  when he found that it was Dr. Wharles  whom the messenger had brought.  The doctor was dashing through the  plantation, and was among them all in a  momeat.  "Make way, my friends, make way,''  he cried in hi"*** hearty, cheery voice, which  struck a strange eo'ntrast to the sickly  horror which was in everybody's heart.  "Dear, dear! This is a had business!  He's dead, quite dead.   Poor fellow!"  With just such short pauses as were  necessary between the phrases, while In*  made a rapid examination of tho body,  the doctor made this pronouncement,  "which-evi_rybody-had"expectedramid~th.  awed silence of'the little crowd. Ho appeared to bo unaware of the presence of  Astley, and devoted himself entirely to  his ditty, with the coolness and nerve begotten of experience.  "Poor fellow! Who is ho?" he asked,  as he took the nearest lantern, and held  it close to the dead man's face.  Quite sharp and clear Norma's voice  rang out: "Why, you ought to know,  Dr. Wharles, for" he culled at your house  yesterday."  Everybody was startled by these  words, which caused tho doctor to look  up. Perhaps he bad not noticed that  Norma was among the crowd. -,..,.._,..  "Indeed, Lady Darwen," said be, very  eoolly, "I don't see how you should know  who called upon me better than I do myself!"  There was a sort of feeling that the  handsome doctor, whose quarrel with tbe  lady's husband was the talk of the place,  had "scored" against Norma, who remained silent for a space, while the doe-  tor asked some further questions as to  the person who had discovered the body.  When he was told it was the lady whom  all now knew for the first timo to be  Lady Darwen, the doctor turned to her  witb cool and dignified respectfulness.  "And may I ask, Lady Darwen,".be  said, "whether you did actually see the;  man shoot himself?"       ���������'.*..  "Shoot himself!" echoed she, in surprise,   i  "Yes. To me the position of, the  wound points to suicide," said Dr.  Wharles.  "Then Where's the pistol ?" said Norma.  There was a sort of murmur in the  crowd, and the fluent doctor sard nothing for a moment. The men and women  looked at each other and nodded silently.  This time it was Norma, plainly, whei  bad "scored" against the doctor.  For the ground had been searched all  round the body, and no trace of any  weapon had been found.  CHAPTER XVn.  The silence was broken by one of the  men in the group round, who nodded first  to the lady and then to the doctor.  . "I've looked round and about, but  there's no pistol nigh 'im,.doctor," suid  lie.  "The body 'has been moved, evidently,"  answered Iir. Wharles. "He certainly  didn't fall on his side like tins. It's im*  possible. The person who fourul hiin may  have found' lire pistol also, and taken it  away. Who was it? Come, speak out,  some of you! Doesn't anybody know  who it was found the poor fellow first?  Who wns in tho wood at the time?"  "I was not in the wood, but I was just  outside,  and  I  saw  two  Hashes, arrd  1  pis!  had beerr torn open," she added steadily  "Torn opcrr? You mean they were  open?" said the doctor with decision.  "I thought they had been torn open."  she repeated firmly, "either to rob I lie  poor man or to find out whether he was  dead."  A thrill ran through the crowd. Tlierx*  seemed alrend* to be a feeling abroad  that among tl; .iir present were sou.u for  one reason or another deeply interested  in  the case.  "And can nobody "L.o give any information?" wont on the doctor.  "Yes," said Norm". "I found a boy, a  big, rough boy, perched in a tree, that  tree."  And she pointed to an oak a . ev  paces away from  where Uiey all stood  __������&.!> Qsua "was a murmur of honor uuo  ciottement through the crowd.  "Who warn it?"  "Ay, msfbo he could tell eummat!"  These ao** ___nilar exclamations ran from  mouth to mouth. Indeed of all the people present, perhaps thc doctor, and Astley, who was away in the background,  were thc only two persons who,made no  comment on Norma's words.  She could not tell who the boy was,  and said that he had refused to give his  name or that of the place where he lived,  and that all he would own to was that  be lived a long way off, behind tbo hill.  The shrewd Northerners who formed  her audience shook their heads, and one  woman said:  "Maybe be were freghtened and didn't  like to give his name, nor to say where  he come from."  "It couldn't ha' been .0 very fur," said  another, "or be wouldn't ha' been here  so late."  "Maybe it were Raggett's lad," suggested one.  And by common acclaim this was  hailed as a good suggestion.  "Ay, Ned Raggett's always a raoueh-  ing round 'ere o' neghts, snaring rabbits  most like," Baid one.  "Let's go to Raggett's, and ast him."  The proposal being hailed as a good  one, the baronet came forward and led  the way to the side gate, which he  opened with his key.  Since the first mention of the boy,  neither Astley nor the doctor had added  a word to the debate. When they all  started' off to Ned Raggett's cottage,  they left Dr. Wharles still examining the  body of tbe dead man. But by the time  they bad crossed the road and knocked  at Raggett's door, the doctor was in the  front rank of the enquirers.r  Norma found that Raggett's was the  very cottage* where the good-looking  young woman had curtly refused to call  tip her husband after the tragedy, and  she already felt pretty sure that Ned  would prove to be the'boy whom she had  found in the tree.  It was a long time before tbey could  get admittance; and when the black-  eyed Nanoe Raggett opened the door, and  the doctor enquired courteously whethei  they could speak to her step-son, slu-  looked horribly frightened, and leavint'  them all at the door abruptly, went to  the foot of the stairs, and called, "Ned!  Ncdl" in a husky voice.  Ned appeared to be quite as, unwillirrj:  to come down'as his step-mother hud  heen. Dr. Wharles at last offered to 21  up and fetch hiin; and bounding up tin  narrow, rickety staircase two steps at a  time, he soon brought down the trembling hobbledehoy, who proved, as Norma knew at once by his voice and gait,  to be thc lad whom she had found  perched in the tree.  All efforts, however, to make him corn  munieative on the subject of what In*  had seen failed utterly. It was irnpos  sihle for him lo deny that he had hei'i  in the tree, for Norma identified him posi  lively, and forced him into confession.  "You remember my crying oirt rrru  your calling to mc from the tree?" i-lu  ���������said.  "Ay," said the boy with a sullen do:'.  "Well, lad. tell rrs how you coorn rij  there, and what you see," said the 11 nr  from the cottage next door, laying a>  encouraging hand on Ned's shoulder.

Ice cream and all delicate deserts that  are properly served cold are digestible,  because they are of light, digestible  material.  It is an absurdity to serve a coiv-  fiomrue cold, because, from its nature,  a consomme should be jelly and nol a  liquid, when cold. A consomme that  remains a liquid is loo watery to be of  value as food.  There is a tendency in summer to  quench thirst by over-copious draughts  of ice water nnd the various cooling  effervescent drinks. This is a. bad habit, and one children are apt to acquire,  as well as older people, if they are  allowed to do so. It is a matter of habit, which can be easily overcome.

Tin- doctrine of human equality  must, be held responsible for- much  that darkens lire world's history.  Tin's, the basic principle of the Karl  Alavx system of political economy  upon which has been erected modern  Socialism, Iras, more than anything  else, been the cause of infernal dissensions in nations and outbreaks of a  serious character resulting irr loss of  life and temporary iinaivhy. Acting  upon arrd intlarrring the proletariat of  France it caused the disasters ol" the  Commune, witli its attendant pin irom-  eria of petroleuses, Phrygian leagues  and oilier' associations llrat* held  human life as untiling. They considered all culture or living for siuuet liing  else than animal instincts only lobe  remedied by lire knife, Ilie firearm  anil l:lu* guillotine.  In the I."nileri States, which perpetuated this living lie in ils Declaration  of Independence, 111 is economic disease  is largely manifest, but, Iras taken upon  itself a somewhat, dill'erenl, form.  There it seems limited to lire white  inrm alone and is not considered applicable Ui lire negro. Count-less assassinations of men of Ilie coloured run-,  perpetrated on many occasions without, the slightest, evidence, are- distinctly and decidedly the outcome of  the idea that everyone i.s equal. The  assassins think thciriscivc-. right in  taking tire law in their own bands, on  t lie ground that all men are equal and  any Tom.

I lieiel'oce. as  rro Socialist action Iras been apparent  in British Columbia, take lire actions  arrd advice of members nf that body  in oilier places as evidences of ils  probable course in the event of its  becoming an appreciable power in  this province. It may be safely con-  ceiled thai the -Mayor' of tire cily of  Xew York has within Iris control a  machinery of government almost, if  rrot qrriLe, equal to IhnloT the Fiemier*  of British Columbia. Granting llii.-,.  which i.s air eminently fail'proposition,  we may quote the words of lhe  ���������Socialist aspirant to lire former office  as air indication of the advice which  Mould Iiu given and acted upon by lhe  same international parly here. During lire last municipal campaign the  Socialist candidate, addressed these  words lo an immense public mass  meeting:  "Xexl election vole so that you will  carry tire revolver instead of lhe  police, not tliat we Socialists believe  in bloodshed, but if bloodshed then, is  to lie. I want, to see a battlelield where  the capitalist ties si ark and where tire  Socialists arc planting lire banner."  ���������Such words as (hese bid us Ire ware.  It may bo thai tlie Socialist candidate  in Kevelstoke riding will object to  being classed with this out and out  anarchist, but lie is a member of the  same party and was backed by the  total socialist vote of Xew York.  These revolutionary tendencies are  apparent even in our own province.  The secretary of local rrrrion Xo. IM of  the Socialist party of 1*5. C I'umber-  l.irrd. Iras issued a niairifestoappeaiing  for funds,    in it lie state.-:  "We are going to run a candidate  in the interests of the Revolutionary  Proletariat of British Columbia."  Tho dictionary definition of "revolutionary" is "���������producing ureal and  sudden change" ami of "proletariat" i.-  "tlie lowest labouring class." And so  the aim of t lie Socialist party is to produce a great and sudden change  through (be lowe-t labouring class.  Xo opportunity will be otVeicd tlie  skilled artizan, or any other branch of  the community   than the   lowest kind  of   labour.

Bob, the first to arrive, was decidedly the worse for  liquor, and Bell seemed over-exefi'ted,  as if she ihad taken wine.  Her escort, a dashing reckless fellow,  dlid' not please the wary watcher.  "Alas! my'brother's children are fast  rushing to destruction. What com I do  to save them?" wns the burden of her  thoughts. "Perhaps 1 can do better  than to bequeath them my .fortune!  Bell, my bright luuncstike, I must  place under better influences. If she  can study music and cullivate her fine  voilce She'll be glad to go away; and  I'll tie-p John through college. Poor  boy!

"John  can earn Ms way���������'self-made' men  'mounted to the most, ye*ll alius find,"  said he to iris sister-.  "But, brother Silas, you do not re-  ailize his;.need of time!

"Well, if Bell wants to go, an' her  mother can spare her hurry her off,  but! must say it's all tomfoolery and  a foolish waste af money!"

"Tito question recently agitated with so  much vigor and rigor, as to whether a  college oil*"ation is necessary to a. young  man in business" (saya Tom Masson in  one of the magazines) "is not half  so interesting as how many men should  a girl be engaged to before she is married. This question strikes at the roots  otf society, and generations to come will  be influenced by it.:  "Just as the kitten acquires valuabla  practice hy playing with the dummies  ���������before she enters upon the serious business of the professional mouse., so, before tire knot is tied, it, is proper that  a girl should fortify herself with ns  much preliminary training ns possible.  Yet litis does not imply recklessness nor  that siipcrllci.il skimming from one subject to another which preclude., n proper  mnslary of the problem. Enough tim.  should be tnken to hook the man thoroughly, and when Ire is properly anil  steadily in hand, to study liim until tho  possibilities arc exhausted. Only then  should he be relinquished, nnd anothei  specimen should be selected, and so on  until thc final adjustment. j  "And, above nil, girls, do not allow  any false sympathy for the man himself  to interfere with your end. It is natural for him to squirm, but the whole  process, while painful at the time, will do  iim lasting good.  "The ideal, toward which you are di*  rectin'g your efforts, is, of eorrrsc, to acquire sueh a working knowledge of all  men tliat, when you nr6 married, the  management of one will be a second nature���������a habit of life that imposes no additional strain arrd does rrot take away  .your attention from the other enjoyments that you have a right to expect.  To be constantly astonished at some new  and hitherto unsuspected peculiarity in  your (alleged) lord and master, when,  ���������hy a brilliant series of preliminary engagements beforehand, this might have  'been obviated, is, to say the least, unfortunate. Well might some married veteran exclaim at this point, with much  emphasis, that if a girl waited to find  out all the peculiarities of men before  ehe married, she would never marry al  all. And there is considerable truth in  this.  "What a girl should strive for, however, is not only to discover a man's peculiarities, but to learn how to subdue  them to her own uses. For, beneath his  envelope of weakness and cunning and  . roughness and tactlessness, man, after  all, is a useful animal, lie is a good  machine to pay bills with, to receive use-  Jess ornaments from on 'anniversaries  and holidays, to ward off burglars with,  to escort one to functions, to consult  about the baby's peekedness, and last,  ���������but not least, to feed. For every woman  should have one animal to feed, and a  man, while often lacking what a dog  lias, answers the purpose' perhaps as  srell.  '"It must be admitted that there is  about a first love a freshness, a piquancy,  a 'fine frenzy,' and a peculiar beauty  that belongs to it alone. And, if this  high pace could be maintained, if life  ���������were all loving, it would be rash to relinquish this brightest dream for a succession of lesser commonplace' reveries.  Yet sooner or later the fire must be  made, the table set, and the* dishes  ���������washed, and practical love requires a  practieal, working knowledge. So, go on  girls, and learn, your lessons beforehand,  ���������while you have enough text-books,'and  _do not wait until you are limited to one  "���������only, with regard to the number, don't  ���������wait too long. There is always a last  lover; and it is generally advisable to be  on with the new love before you are off  ���������with the old.  "AU this, of course, presupposes the  probability of a girl being able to find  out about a man beforehand, when it  is notorious that men tire not the same  before and after. This, however, is not  eo difficult as it seems. Perhaps the best  rule is the rule of contraries. The man  who promises too much, spends too  much, loves too much beforehand, will  fail most, have less lo spend, and love  too littlo afterward."  Needs of the Nations.  "H we may believe the Washington  correspondent of the New York'World,'"  says the "St. James Gazette," "the United States Government are to propose  to Portugal that they should take  J* short lease of Lisbon for tho  purpose of blockading it, presumably  with dummy shells. . . The object is  to prove that the 'American' navy can  .ross tho ocean  to take the offensive."

A letter of condolerrcc to Tobias Lear,  March 30, 1796, signed by both George  and Martha Washington, brought eleven  hundred and fifty dollars at the Peirce  sale in New York recently. It was, of  course, the double signature, said to be  unique, that gave it this value, though  the epistle itself is considered a. model of  dignified and yet sincere sympathy.  The announcement that the Sultan of  Morocco has bought an estate in Norfolk, Eng., has created a good deal of  interest in Europe. The purchase is believed to be partly thc result of the  Sultan's apprehensions that the present  rebellion may be successful, and that he  may in consequence have to flee to another country, and partly the result of  his remarkable admiration for foreign  things. He is said also to have deposited  a largo treasure in gold and jewels in a  London bank.  Ezra Kendall, who is appearing this  season in "The Vinegar Buyer," has just  purchased six hundred acres of land near  the Bennings race-course, several miles  from Washington, which he intends to  divide equally among his six boys.

Tho city is nominally Democratic,  and it is generally conceded that Stewart will be defeated at the polls. If he  is, it will be the ninth time that a Harrison has occupied the mayor's chair at  Chicago. Carter Harrison, father of the  present mayor, was five times the city's  ohief executive.  Ways of Wooing.  There are more ways of wooing than  there aro nations, and to most people  many of tlreso may well seem very  strange indeed:  The etiquette of love among the Hungarian gypsies, for instance, is n. follows:  Cakes are used as love-letters. A coin is  baked into the cake, which, at the first  .pportunity, is Hung to the favored object. Tire retention of this is looked  upon as a virtual "acceptance;" its forcible return, an intimation that the "attentions" are undesired.  This, of course, requires no eloquence  on the lover's part. In some parts of  the world, indeed, all thnt is demanded  of a lover is physical force. Among tho  semi-savage tribes in the Arabian desert,  round about Sinni, the lover tries to  seize the girl while sho is pasturing her  father's flocks. She pelts him with mud,  sticks and stones, arrd will be held in lifelong repute if she succeeds in wounding  hirrr. Once driven into her father's tent,  the lover's object is attained and the  betrothal is proclaimed.  The Eskimo smitten one goes orre better, inasmuch ns he marches openly and  without any healing about the bush to  his loved one's abode, seizes her by her  long, strong hnir, or her fur garments,  nnd drags her to his lair of ice or tent  of skin.  There is considerably more poetry in  the method of the Yuo*Mido_, one of the  many Burmese-Tartar peoples, who woo  their wives absolutely without words,  but to the sound of music. On the first-  day of winter they have a great feast, at  whicli all Uhe marriageable girls gather  and listen to the music rrrndc by the  bachelors, who sit under and round the  "desire tree," each playing his favorite  instrument.  As the maiden he loves, passes him the  youth plays the louder and more feelingly. If the girl ignores him and passes  on he knows that she will have none of  him; if she steps up to him and lays a  flower upon his instrument he jumps up,  takes her by the hand, taking care not  to drop the flower, and they wander off  into the moonlit woods.  A remarkable custom prevails among  the Dyaks of Borneo. When one of  them would woo the maiden of Iris heart,  he chivalrously helps her in the hardest  portions of her uneasy daily toil. If  she smiles upon him, never so sweetly,  he does not immediately respond, but  waits until the next dark night. Then  he steals to her house and lightly wakens her as she lies asleep beside her  sleeping parents.  The parents, if they approve, make no  sign, but sleep On���������or pretend to. If the  girl accepts, she rises and takes from her  lover the betel and sweetmeats he has  brought her. That seals their betrothal,  and he departs as he came, neither speaking nor being spoken to.  The Japanese lover, wishing to make  known his love, throws a bunch of pale  plum-flower buds into her litter as she  enters it to be carried to a friend's wedding. If she tosses the blossoms lightly  out the suitor is rejected; if she fastens  them in her girdle the suitor is acceptable to her.  In Spain the young man looks amorous, but never speaks until after acceptance by his lady-love. The girl neither  speaks nor looks, but���������she sees. Later,  in the cool of the evening, the gentleman raps at her father's door and craves  a gourd of water. It is, of course,  given him. Then comes the crisis. If he  is not offered a chair within the porch or  a seat in the garden, ire bows and walks  away���������a rejected man; if, on the other  hand, the coveted civility is extended to  him, he remains, an accepted suitor.  There is, in the event of his acceptance,  a general celebration by the family of  the bride-to-be in honor, of her betrothal.

Jewel-fit., Mexico.  The jewel from which this well-known  street is Mexico City takes its name was  a magnificent bracch-t of gold, set with  many  precious  stones.    The  jewel  was  made for Isabel da hi I. arside y Tovar, n  beautiful woman belonging to the most,  exclusive     society   of     the   capital    of  Mexico,   both   by   birth   and  marriage.  But, alasl it wns not her husband, Senor  Alonso Fernandez de Bobadilla, who presented the bracelet to her.   This gentleman had for a long time been much more  unhappy than he appeared.   In truth, lie  was the  most miserable of mortals, for  he was filled with apprehension that the  wife  of  his  bosom,  whom he  so much  loved, did  not return his affection and  was not true to hirrr.   They lived in tho  greatest   luxury   in   ono   of    tire Sliest  Ironies   in  tho   street,   and,  indeed,   in  Mexico.    Senor Fernandez's offices were  on the first floor of the house, and their  lurge   and handsomely   furnished livirrg-  Dpnrlments  wero above.     Ono  dny   tbe  senor   was   sitting   in   Iris   office,   sadly  meditating on his lot, when a letter was  thrown through the bars of lire window  and  fell directly in  front of  him.    He  started  as  if  from a dream,  but  even  before he broke tho seal he krrew what  the letter would reveal.    It mentioned  no names, but between the lines he rend  the guilty name of a professional friend,  Senor Rnoul de Lara.    Killed with suspicion   as he had been, the definite revelation of the truth almost stunned him.  He thought of that very morning when  he had ridden forth with his lovely wife  by  his side    in  an. equipage  that was  almost royal in its richness, envied by  all who saw him, and richer than any of  liis  acquaintances,  but  also  more  unhappy.  His flrst impulse was to rush up to  the living-rooms with the letter in one  hand and a dagger in thc other, to  charge the Dona Isnbcl with her unfaithfulness, and, if she could not deny it,  to stab Irer to the heart. But instead he  decided upon the cold plan of establishing a watch that he might prove to himself the'bitter truth. Accordingly, he  went calmly up to his wife and told her  thnt Ire hnd made an cngngement with  the Government that would keep him  awny from home until late at night.  Dona Isabel bade him nn affectionate  farewell and he departed.' A few doors  nway he secreted himself in the gathering shadows. Night had just fallen, when  a man, well wrapped in a long  black cloak,'.'which'��������� he held over his  mouth, ns was the custom at night-time,  and his sombrero shading securely the  upper part of his face, passed him hurriedly, and then stopped in front of  Senor Fernandez's own door. There was  no knock, but the Dona Isabel appeared  on the upper balcony, greeted him, and  then the heavy street door opened  silently a little way, nnd tbe man in  the long cloak entered. Senor Fernandez  ��������� waited no longer. Hastening into his  own house, he found his friend just  clasping a beautiful and costly bracelet  on the arm of the DonaTsabel. Another  instant and a dagger lrnd penetrated the  black cloak and the blacker; heart beneath' it. ��������� The* Dona Isabel turned to  flee, but finding the doors barred sh"  fell on her knees/before her husband and  begged for pardon, mercy and her life.  "Ks thus I pardon you!" exclaimed  the outraged husband, ns he plunged the  blood-dripping dngger into her heart.  The following day the two bodies were  found in the house, nnd on the door, with  the dagger stuck through it to hold it  there, the bracelet ns proof of the crime.

The well-known assyriologist, Dr. Hugo Winekler, has published an account of  the legislation promulgated by KingAro-  raphel of Babylon, which, so far as is  known at present, was the first book of  laws ever given' to the world. King  Amraphel lived 2250 years B. C, and is  mentioned in the Bible as a contemporary of Abraham, so that his statutes  were drawn up fully five centuries before  the laws of Moses. They number 282,  and contain the following::  "If a woman who sells beverages gives  bad value for the money paid her, she  shall be thrown into water.  "If a wife be a spendthrift, or if she  efcherwisc neglect Irer duties, her husband may put 'her away without compensation; but if a mnn put awny bis  wife for rro other renson than that she  has no children, he shall return her whole  dowry,  The Hotel Chaplain  One of the most ..striking proofs of tire  increase of hotel-dwellers in large cities  is the movement which has been started  to provide special ehaplnins for those  who sojourn casually or permanently in  the big and little hostelrics. In New  York a'Hotel Chaplains' Society has  been formed, which includes representatives of most forms of religious belief,  a*, well as prominent hotel-keepers. The  Rev. H. M. Warren, who has given up his  church to devote himself to the work,  thus explains the methods of the association: "No creed or church, you sec, is  concerned * in. the hotel chaplain movement. I am only one of them. If a  patron of the hotel be ill or need the  services of a clergyman. I may be called  first, but through me any other clcrgy-  Iman will come. I am glnd to say that I  have lists of every creed, where men  have said they were willing to come.  That there is a field for the work is  proved by the fact that when I first  started there was hardly one call for me  a week. Now there are ns many as three  or four a day." It does not appear how  the chaplain's salary is to he paid, hut  this notice has appeared in all the large  hotels: "Guests, patrons and friends of  this hotel wishing thc services of a clergyman are respectfully informed that  tbey may call upon JlfiV.

Regarding C. J. Wilkes.
To the Eilitorol ilie IlEiiAl.r,:
IU-_vi_l,*.'l'01.K, B. C, Aug. I, 100a
Sir: I was much .surprised at the
hospital meeting on Monday to hear*
Ihe iiiiM.'iri'.'intahle reference made bv
Mr. C. J. YVilkcsto W. B. Pool, who
has been one of the most, munificent
contl-ihtiloi'.-to that institution. Mr'.
Pool represent.-., also. large mining
interests in Camborne, neither of
which liave other- reptesenlation on
the Board. 1 was therefore glad to
see that I he meeting promptly threw
down Mr. Wilkes* suggestion. But.
as irr Ihe latter' gentleman's upillion, a
city director should attend all rnecl-
ings. what about. Mr1. Wilkes himself ';
lie has lately quit hi.-avocation in this
cily. for the apparently more congenial one of siiperinlcnding the .slinging*
of imid on the Government dredge
and will accordingly be absent fronr
Revelstoke practically till the time.
That being Hie case, if he attends
Boaiil meel ings regularly his I ravelling time will be al. the cost of the
public duties his present position calls
upon hiin to peiTorin.
.May I, therefore, suggest, that .Mr.
Wilkes hand in his resignation, lie
repre-cnl- nothing irr particular and
his place on the Board of I. ircclo]*-
cottlil he easily filled. I'm sure they
would p,i.���a graceful vole of thanks
for hi- previous services. In the event
nf .Mr. Wilkes pioserving his consistency by taking the. course outlined.
I venture to suggest that A. !���_.

the Ladies llospiial Aitl Society who.-fe
report, which   will   be   read    to   you

the ladies ol' Revelstoke for the hospital.    We  also  desire to thank the Victorian Ol'der-of Nurses for the generous
additional grant, of lji*_0U. Bv. Cross for
thedouti. ion of an up-to-date operating
table, and the city council for the grunt,
of free water and light to tire hospital.
The   support   tho   board has received
from all sides has been most gratifying
and encouraging arrd   we  feel that as
long as the  people, of  Revelstoke anil
the vicinity .unite   as  they have done
in the past to make the hospital a success it   will   prosper   and  continue to
perforin the great, mill   noble work for
which it, was established.

His syndicate, flint owns practically
all the placer ground on French creel.,
purchased the properties in the belief
that au old channel was to be found
above the workings that made the
locality famous in the original liig
Meml excitement. Their' idea was
evidently correct as, on July 27th, they
succeeded in breaking into new ground
aftei* putting a shaft of over 100.i'eel, to
tap the channel above the old workings. The limited time available before Mr. Bradley was compelled fo
leave for' the east, showed the new discovery to he all that was hoped for.
He brought dowir with hirrr a lot of
coarse gold lYoni the bottom of the
shaft and il. is his intention lo lay in a

men working all winter'.
