THE BRITISH  CABINET  Resignation of Duke of Devonshire���������Vacant Portfolios Filled  by Selection of new  Ministers  ���������Appointments Approved.  London,   Oct.  5th.���������The Buke  of  Devonshire, who was 'Lender'*"of   the  Conservative Purty in   the  House of  Lords, has resigned the office of  Lord  President of the Council, and the King  has accepted his resignation.  ^JCheneuvcabiiieki.s^cotiiposed^is^fol..  lows : ".   ��������� "  Ex Mr. Broderick, formerly Secretary  for War, succeeds Lord George Hamilton ns Secretary for India. .  Mr. Austen Chamberlain, Postmaster-General, succeeds Mr. Ritchie, as  Chancellor of the Exchequer.  Hon. Alfred Lyttelton, Recorder of  Oxford, succeeds Mr. Joseph Chamberlain as Secretary for the Colonies.  Mr. H. O. Arnold-Foster,' Secretary  to the Admiralty, succeeds Mr. Broderick as Secretary for War.  Mr. Andrew Graham Murray, Lord  Advocate of Scotland, succeeds Lord  Balfour of Burleigh, as Secretary for  Scotland.  Lord Stanley, Financial Secretary  for the War office, succeeds Mr. Austen Chamberlain as Postmaster-  General. .*.';  No successor has yet been appointed  to the Duke of Devonshire, and several  minor Government offices still remain  vacant.  Of, the new appointments announced  tonight, the most surprising is that  of the.Hon. Alfred Lyttelton as Secretary for the Colonies. Mr. Lyttelton  is'a man of acknowledged ability and  a. good speaker, but he has no Ministerial experience whatever. He is  better known to the Colonies as a  cricketer than as 11 politician.  Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Fairhall and  child, of Comaplix, left on Saturday  for a holiday trip cast. Thoy will  spend a month or so near Greirfell,  Man., when Mr. Fairhall will return  homo.' Mrs. Fairhall will spend some  time at her old homo in Poterboro,  Ontario,  SUPPLEMENTARY  Estimates Show Nil for Westminster Bridge.���������The Quebec  Bridge Has $6,000,000 Guarantee.���������B.C. Railway Subsidies  Ottawa, Oct. 7.���������The Liberal caucus  yesterday endorsed the*proposul of the  Government, to guarantee bonds of  the Quebec Bridge Co. to the extent  of $0,000,000.  Tho Railway Committee has turned  .down-the^bilbto-incorporatethe'West-?  minster Bridge Co., introduced by  Aulay Morrison, M. P., for Now  Westminster. The British Columbia  Government insisted that the bridge  was a Provincial .ltulertaking and il.  was tbe policy of the administration  to keep it under public control.  The supplementary estimates have  been brought down, but nothing is  appropriated for the New Westminster  bridge. Thore are a lot of "railway  subsidies, those in B. C. being:  Nicola, Kamloops and Similkameen,  from Spence's Bridge to Nicola Lake,  45 miles, $1-14,000.  Kootenay Central Railway, from  Golden to International Boundary, by  Windermere aud Fort Steele  and crossing the Crow's Nest  Railway at Elko, 106 miles, $339,-  200.  Kettle River Valley Railway, from  Grand Forks up the North Fork and  West Fork of the North Fork of the  Kettle River, 50 miles, $100,000.  For a lino from Wellington to Union  Bay, 55 miles, $170,000.    -  For a line from Midway to Vernon,  150 miles, $180,000.  CHASIIIEKLAIN-'S   PKOOHKSS.  London, Oct. 7,���������Continuing his  fiscal campaign, Mr. Chamberlain tonight addressed a meeting of 4.000  persona in the town ball of Greenock  and dwelt strongly upon necessity for  reform in lineal system.  London, Oct. 7.���������Tlie morning papers devote ample space troth to reports of and comments  on Mr. Cham^  HO, HO! NOT FOR JOE!  Said the Electors Most Emphatically on Saturday.���������Thomas Taylor Elected By a  Substantial Majority.���������Conservative Administration Sustained and  Stable Government Assured.���������Majority of Two Over Liberals, Socialists and Labour Party Combined.  Revelstoke was very animated on  Saturday. Business was practically  suspended and the large vote, 409 out  of a possible 425, polled shows that  every committee was hard at work.  The total vote in the whole constituency will be about 825 wliile the  Voters' List shows 1080 names. Final  returns are not yet available, the official count taking place as the Herald  goes to press but as yet known the  total vote is  Taywis, Cons., 335  Kellie, Ind., 308.  Bennett, Soc., 178  In this city Mr. Taylor had a majority of 00, exactly tbe number forecast  by the. Herald. It vvilfalso be noticed that Mr. Bennett came within a  small margin of losing his deposit.  The Government, as will be seen by  an article on our editorial page has a  majority over all and will, when the  House meets, command at least seven  votes over the Opposition. This is a  safe working majority and, While not  as large as anticipated, is most satisfactory. The snowing-under of Joe  Martin no onewill regret.  The Government has been endorsed  by a much larger majority of actual  votes than the candidates elected  shows. A careful analysis of tbe votes  cast gives,the Conservatives a majority of "5292 over the Liberals,  which, divided into the average vote  of, say, 750 in each constituency* entitles tbem to seven more seats than  the Liberals, whereas the returns only  give five.  The Socialists polled a total vote of  ���������1379, to which may be added 2S1 for  the Socialist-Labour candidate in Vancouver. This, divided among ten  candidates, averages 400 votes in each  .constituency. The surprise *��������� 7ns.the  large   vote, 1338,   polled by Mortimer  one of the Socialist candidates in Vancouver. ��������� '������������������    '���������..'������������������"'���������.'.  The Labour party had five candidates in the field and polled a total  voce of 4333 averaging 800 in each constituency.  The official count started this morning and will'probably: take until late  tonight. The figures given above are.  the result corrected to the time the  Herald .went'to press. The only  change made was the disallowance of  one vote previously counted for Kellie.  ELSEWHERE.

Conversion to his  views appears as distant as ever from  the columns which have hitherto been  opposed to him. Mr. Chamberlain  believes that the Colonies will secede  unless a preferential scheme is adopted.  ���������While there is no evidence of a breach  between present exponents of public  opinion '- or of the electorate to give  Mr. Chamberlain's fiscal policy immediate endorsement, there is ample  proof of a desire to exhaustively examine his p.ioblem and accept or reject  jt on its_ lneriLs_r.iither... than on party  lines.  ANNUAL MEETING OF C.P.R.  Montreal, Oct. 7.���������The annual  meeting of the Canadian Pacific Railway was held here today ut which the  23rd annual report wan presented by  Sir Thos. Shaughnessy, the president,  who briefly referred to gratifying results, Which made the'shareholders  present happy. Among the resolutions passed was one providing for the  expenditure of nearly ten million dollars on rolling stock and additional  terminal facilities. The old board of  directors was re-elected.  Farewell Supper.  The members of' the Independent  band gathered en masse at the band  room on Friday evening the occasion  being a farewell supper to Mr. R. S.  Wilson who has been President and  business manager for a considerable  period and bandied the affairs of the  band with great ability.  The supper was provided by M. A.  Smith&Co. and was much appreciated.  A. number of short speeches were given  all expressing regret at Mr. Wilson's  departure and he was presented with  a marble eight-day clock as a slight  token of esteem. The recipient replied  in a happy manner and the proceedings  terminated with -'For he's a jolly good  fellow."  Ci-awford & Co., who recently  liought out Andy Craig's livery and  freight business, have made themselves  popular with the shipping and travelling public. They have retained all  the old staff.  THE VACANT  PORTFOLIOS  Thomas Taylor Likely to be  Appointed Provincial Secretary  ���������Hon. Charles Wilson for  Attorney-General.  (From Our Oivn Corresporidont.)  Victoria, Oct. 6.���������The defeat of  Hon. A. E. McPhillips and Hon. A. S.  Goodeve will necessitate a revision of  the Cabinet. I hear, iiponvglX good  OTthT^tjvtliat~HbTJT^Cliarles^Wilson,  K. C, will vacate the Presidency fo,.  the portfolio of Attorney-General. In  that event the Provincial Secretaryship will lie between Tlioinn.s Taylor  and Price Ellison, witli chances in  favor of tho former. C. W. D. Clifford,  being a resident of Victoria, will probably tako the position vacated by  Hon. Charles Wilson.  The. Speakership will, I believe, be  tendered to Hon, C. K. Pooley who  hns fulfilled that position liefore. If ho  takes it the last vestige of Diinsmuirism  will be removed from the floor of the  House.  Fish River Notes.  A new trail is being built to the  Beatrice mine in preparation for  shipping this winter. Thore is a large  amount of oi-o awaiting shipment.  Work has been suspended on the  Copper Dollar until the beginning of  the year as tbe weather is unsuitable  to bring in machinery, rails, etc., for  the tram line. The property is looking very well. I  Very good reports are coining from  many properties on Goat mountain  and Boyd creek and a big landslide  has, it is reported, exposed a heavy  body of free gold quartz on the north  side of Fish river, near Goldfields.  The Ophir-Ladc and Eva stamp mills  will make trial runs shortly.  The Comaplix mill is running very  smoothly and the many labour-saving  devices render a visit there extremely  interesting.  2,050  2,505  2,-113  2,301  2,300  1,547  1,401  1,411  1,338  1.327  1,250  .1,193  1,104  050  > 909  284  Nanaimo ��������� Hawthornthvvaite, soc.  101 ' majority, the vote being Hawthornthwaite, soc. 480; Quennell, con.  325; Shepherd, lib-lab.'294.

(Special tu tlie IliiiiAi.u.)  Kaslo, Oct. 2.���������A deliberate attempt was made last night to wreck  the special train chartered by Sir  Q}^^^MlM^l,!^Vti^iyi^i���������t'JJve^him.  from Kaslo tb Sandon on his way  home to Vancouver where he wished  to record his vote. The attempt  was made at a good sized bin 11' 12 miles  outside this city. The train consisted  of only one car and the engine, the  latter pushing froni behind. It was  well after dark when the obstruction  was reached and fortunately the train  was travelling very slowly so that it  was not derailed. In vestigatiou showed  that a number of large boulders and  logs bad been placed across the track  with the intention of cruising the  death of Sir Hibbert Tupper. It was  unsuccessful and the line was cleared  and the train proceeded with very  littlo delay.  The Provincial and . local police are  working on the case with some hope  of discovering the offenders but tlie |  px'oximity of the boundary will render  actual capture difficult. Some hotheads attribute the attempt to members of the Socialist party but the  more calm do not say this but think  it thc work of disappointed gamblers  who had wagered heavily against Hon.  R. F. Green's success in tomorrow's  election.  Arrow lake has backed up considerably at Beaton and the landing has  accordingly been moved a mile or so  up the south shore. Both passenger  and freight traffic is very heavy. The  Catnborne-Beaton wagon road is very  bad in some places although the  portions recently repaired will, when  completed, be in first class shape.  . .*���������***. .���������j*. .*���������***. ."h. .*****. .*-**���������. ,***-*,, iT* i'  * ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty '  ttytytyty ty ty ty ty  Bourne  Bros, f  Boiled Linseed Oil  Raw Linseed Oil  Neatsfoot Oil  Turpentine  White Lead  Yellow Ochre  BOURNE BROS.

It will ba  seen that "A" each time takes aw-ify a  number of matches which, added to  those taken by "13," makes four, and aa  twenty-live is one in excess of a mul-  liple of four *B" cannot help losing.  But the' latter does not know it,  ���������plays again, loses agato, and makej  ''A" besin. 0     "  "A" begins:  "A" 3   2    3   2   1   3  "B" 3 .1    2   3    1 ���������  This makes twenty-four, and *'B  loses. "A" simply operates so that aa  ���������soon as possible tlie number ot match*,  es from which "B" has to take shows  one in addition to a multiple of four,  and from then on again takes away a  ���������number, which, added to those taken,  by "B," makes four. Of course, the total number of matches is not restricted to twenty-five. It may be 20, 37, 73,  aoi, etc., but must always be one ia  ���������pxcess of a multiple of four.  Jllrd* Intelllfi-eiiC"-*.  During the early part of the sutm-  " -mer of 1S35, a pair of water-hens built  (their nest by the margin of the orna-  ���������mental pond at Bell's Hill, a piece ol  (water of considerable extent, and or-  .���������diuarilv fed by a spring from tho  -height above, but into which the contents of another large pond can occasionally be admitted.  This was done while the female was  eitting; and as the ucst had been built  when the water lever stood low, tha  eirdde:i iuTlu**: of i-iis large body of water from thc mc-uiu pond caused a  rise of several ivsches, so us to threaten tho speedy iuiueraion aud consc-  ci'.enl dobir uetiois oi the eggs. This  the bi;.is seem ft lr.-.ve been aware of,  nnd they Im-aediately look precausions  agaiust so immir.cnt a danger; for  ���������when the garde-tier, seeing the sudden  ���������rise of the water, went to look after  -the nest, expecting to find it covered  ���������and the eggs destroyed, or at least forsaken by the lieu, he observed, while at  a distance, both birds busily engaged  about the brink where the nest was  iplaced; and when near enough ho  clearly perceived that they were ad-  ��������� -ding, with all possible dispatch, fresh'  ���������materials to raise the fabric beyond  ���������the level of the Increased contents or  the pond; and that the eggs had by,  come means'- been removed from tha  nest by the birds, and were then lying  ' upon the grass about a foot or moro  from the margin of the water.  He watclied them for some time, and  6aw the nest rapidly increase in  ���������height; but I regret to add that he did  ���������uot remain long enough, fearing he-  might create alarm, to witness the interesting act of replacing the egg-J,  ��������� .-which must have been effected shortly  after; for, upon his return in less than  an hour, he found the hen quietly suiting upon them in the newly raised  jiest i  In a few days the young were  thatched, and soon quitted the nest and  took to the'water. The nest wrm  shown to me shortly afterwards, and I  could then plainly discern the formation of tho new with the older pat?  -of the fabric.  v '~~~  Tern l-nrty Tliat Waa 17pact.    -  Two little girls sat together under a  (Dig tree, . with their dollies beside  them, writes Lys Lovett in Brooklyn  -Eagle.  "Ruthie," said one litle girl, "let's  have a tea party and invite Rover and  *he dolls. ���������*  -Goody," cried the other girl; and  then they both jumped up and ran to  ������sk mamma what they might have for  ���������(their party.  ���������   Mamma said: "White tea and slices  Of bread and    jelly and    some .'nice  ���������spongecake."  So Ruthie carried out her table and  Bet it under the tree, and Mabel  --brought-her=new*tea-*setand--spread*-the-:  table. Then they sat the dollies around  ���������on chairs and told Rover that he must  ibe good, and not bark, or, he could not  ���������come to the party.  At last, when everything was ready,  the party began. Mabel poured the tea  out of the fat little tea pot and Ruthia  j>ut in the sugar very carefully. Each  dollle had her cup and saucer and the  Jittle mother made believe that their  children were eating. Rover would nol  elt on a chair, so he lay down beside  .���������Ruthie and watched for his; share ot  the party.  . And oh. how good the bread .and.  Belly tasted under the big tree, and  ithe sponge cake! But what -was tha  jnater with the tea?  ���������' First Mabel took a sip and made a  face, and then Ruthie took a sip and  made a -face/and they all looked at  ���������each other. Then Mabel took a big  .(drink anil choked and coughed and  jar-opped her cup, and Ruthie jumped  iup in a hurry to pound her on the back  and she triped over Rover and fell and  upset table and dollies and all! And  (there was a big squirming heap of  girls and dollies and dog and table and-  dishes.    -   ,  Then thu two little girls picked  {themselves up and looked at each oth*  ���������erand both said: "Salt!"

"Mamma made a mistake and gave  lis salt 'stead of sugar," said Mabel,  end Ruth looked at the upset "party"  and was ready to cry. i  But mamma bad seen It all and sha  came running to pick up tho table and  felt Ruthie and Mabel all over and  asked if any bones were broken.

TDo you know, dear children, that tho  ������lack capped chickadee and the hermtt  Ornish sing like a prima donna? They  ire charming out of door singers. Wo  ire told that the best way to crowd  Dtit the evil is to crowd in the good,  no next time you feel out of sorts try  going out to seo thc birds, for they  won't come to you. They are very shy  indeed, and hard to get near, but as tho  -ountry is the boys* antl girls* gymnasium you might try it, at any rate, and  do as some of the birds do���������swing  about on saplings, sing as the chickadees do, run ubout tho meadows i\3  thc meadow lark docs, take handsprings, which some birds also can  ;lo. as you will (hid out later on. Birds  flowers, insects, an inn* Is and all subjects in nature are gt.od hobbles for  boys and girls. To win bird secrets  you must be very (-''.ret and use kindness, i-cantier Keyset* says in Lis  charming boolt "News from the birds"  that to be successful, you must have an  opera glass, a standard manual, a key,  nn alert mind and a sharp eye. The  beginner needs a key.  Tiro red wing blackbird sings bin  gurgling melody, "o-o-o-gl-c-e. o-o-o-o-  gl-ee," and then breaks down into ;i  fine, high pitched twitter, half music,  half squeak. The bobolink, tho meadow lark, the song sparrow and tho  brown thrasher are all summer warblers. The bobolink lives in clover  fields and in meadows during the summer.

It feathers  early and leaves its home nest earlier  than most birds do. Some bobolinks  build nests in grass tufts witli  thc. bottom of thc nest resting on the  ground, some in hollows scooped out of  tiie ground and surrounded by grass,  covered with plantain leaves. No two  nests are alike, which gives an added  charm to the study of birds' nests aud  to nest hunting.  The brown thrasher's nest is also in  the meadows aud is never the same���������  it is something new all the time. Once  Mr. Keyser saw a chickadee fling himself straight up from the second rail of  a fence so as to alight on his claws on  the bottom of the rail above to get  something he saw there. He had to  turn half way around to do it as he  flew up. He"wheeled ovor also as Iro  came down, and repeated the trick, as  if to say, "There, you can be sure jiow  you saw me perform that trick, if you  want to write up any more of my exploits for the entertainment of your  friends." Mr. Keyser adds, "Think ot  a bird being able to wheel around in  ascending only a foot, and catch him-*  self with his claws on the flat unde**-  surface of a rail! He ought to havo  a gold medal."���������Appleton's Hotar  Reading Books. *(������������������...*"'"'  Aa Authority.  Teacher���������How do you know that two  and two are four, Bobbie?

He lived in  Sonkers, in a house with a lovely lawn  fell around it. Nothing was ever too  good for that cat. He had all his  meals In the dining room and always  ���������mtjieaidei his .���������mistress....Hereh^would  ���������watch each .plate as it was passed  around until five were served; then he  would give a little "Mew!" and claw  at his mistress' dref*. as much as to  say, "It's my turn now." Sometimes  Toby would be late for breakfast and  would be given his milk ln the Hitch.-'  ��������� en. ...'���������; '  One day a colored man came to live  at the house to'act as a waiter and j to  attend to the furnace and do other  ���������Jobs about the place." After the first  day he saw the. man Toby was very  much afraid of him. The cat always  had gone all over the house, but now  no one; could induce him to _go to the  basement, as that was where* the man  generally was. Sometimes, the man  would go out for a time, and then the  cook, whom the cat was very fond of.  ���������would put him on her shoulder and  {walk down to the kitchen, as she had  often done before the colored man  came* to the house, but instantly the  cat would make frantic struggles to  get away,' so that even she could not  get him to go down. The funniest  part was that even when the man was  out the cat would not go down stairs.  The mistress did not like the man  and so when his week was up she discharged him. Just after he had eone  the cook took Toby on her shoulder  and once more went down stairs.to the  kitchen with bim. Tb her and the  mistress' great surprise Toby quietly  sat there, and when he got to tha  kitchen Jumped down, walked around  purring like a.saw mill and In everj  way tried to show how pleased he waj  that his enemy had gone forever. Thin  is a true incident, and it has always  bean a wonder to the family how Tobj  knew when the man was going oul  temporarily, and when he had left for"  erer. ....... ���������j  GOOD     P'l   Cr-ll  in connection with the last visit to  London of the late Shah of Persia,  many stories are told which sound like  satire upon tire politics of. the East-  One of thesa tales, wore amusing perhaps than true, is that he strongly  advised the Prince of Wales to make  away with a certain influential nobie-  man who had grown **too powerful to  be quite safe."  Another story is vouched for on better evidence. The shah was taken to  visit Newgate Prison, and after a  somewhat extended examination, he  suddenly requested to see an execution. With the utmost politeness, tbe  warden of the prison explained tliat  unhappily no one was under sentenco  just at that time; but the shah swept  uwny the objections with a wave of  his  hand.  "Take one of my suite,'" ho said.  'Any one will do."  Greatly to his disappointment, tho  ofllcials declined to comply with hi*  request.  Statesman, legislator, administrator,  orator, scientist and philosopher, the  late Duko of Argyle was a bright ornament of the noble sphere in which  ho was born, says the Youth's Companion.  Like many another man of rank,  he found his exalted position a lonely  one, and his isolation has been neatly  described by an innkeeper on the  duke's estate.  "His grace," remarked the Scotchman, "is in a verra deeficult poseetion  whatever. His pride of intellect will  no' let him associate wi' men of his  aiu birth, and his pride of birth will  no' let him associate wi' men of hi*  ���������ain intellect"  The recent visit of Queen "Victorlt.  .to.

The campaign of falsehood and  vilification against Mr.. Taylor and  the present Government instituted by  our contemporary arrd taken up with  enthusiasm by Mr. Kellie's committee  has met with it's own reward. Mr.  Taylor has won with a good majority  nnd the same is true of the Government. AVhile the success of tire  Government wns not us great -is* anticipated there were many factors  entering into the contest at tbo last  minute whicli changed political  matters considerably. AVe may take  occasion to refer to tbem elsewhere.  In Thomas Taylor Revelstoke riding  has a member elect who will act in the  future as in tbe past as the representative of every part of the constituency.  He is remarkably free from that,  sectional feeling which did so much  towards securing Mr. Kellie's defeat.  Mr. Taylor is on old resident of the  Kootenays: he knows the needs and  requirements of this riding and irr the  big fight in the House against the  Canadian Northern grab and later in  his endeavour to secure proper representation for this vicinity showedhim-  self possessed of that sturdy independence after election which is much  more desirable than the  ante-election | <>*������'er bigh  they will be. AVe prefer to suppose  that the deed was the work of disappointed gambler**' who realized that  the money bet by them on the victory  of either Messrs. Retiillack or Shannon  was being lost by tbe ultimate success  which was apparent for Hon. R. F.  Green.  In common, with every self respecting citizen of the province we congratulate our distinguished fellow citizen  on his lucky escape. AVe hope no  effort will be spared to bring the  miscreants to justice and that such  \ efforts will be successful. The method  pursued savours somewhat of an adjacent country not under British rule  and it is probable the offenders are  now in that land.  couple of Mr,  Kellie's stiongholds  to  the south.

They have done well and when the  excitement incident upon the contest  ha.- subsided their success will be  concurred in by practically every  voter in the constituency.  INDEPENDENTS.  We note with satisfaction that, so  far as is at present known, the. two  Independent candidates in .Saturday's  -^(plections-^hnve���������ljeen���������defeated f^^-'-ilrr  Kellie. in this riding, a Liberal refusing to support that party, arid Mr.  El-erts, a Conservative refusing to  support the Government, were both in  their candidature at variance with the  expressed wish of the people for- party  line government. There were other  ifA-sons. unnecessary to mention at  this time, which rendered the election  of these gentlemen undesirable. XVe  trust that Mr. Kellie will, irr retirement, rrru.-w upon the result of his  campaign and learn, once and for all,  that the only use electors in llritish  Columbia, lrave for political "Independence" is .1 strict observance of the  "Independence of Parliament Act" a  statute which will repay perusal and  rumination .upon by both Messrs.

P., can  filially make up his mind to this necessary improvement, and there should  then be no difficulty in making the  trip to Fish creek camps comparatively easy.  The present Government has done  as much as possible this season but  next year not only the people actually  concerned but also the merchants of  Kevestoke should insist on better communication.

Wc* are sure that Mr. Taylor' will  press the importance of this necessary  work upon the Government and. we  trust, with a full measure of success.  THE ELECTIONS.  The dastardly attempt on the life of  Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, an aV:-  counl of which is given elsewhere,  was a compliment to him as well as a  disgrace to the Province. He is known  all over the Empire a.s a strong supporter of the Conservative party and  the National policy but even his most  pronounced enemy would assert that  his personal character is above reproach.  "We would not, like some of oni'  contemporaries, accuse the Socialist  party nor any of its members of being  the pei-petnitoi*s of the outrage. This  ���������would lie evidently unjust until tbe  facts are discovered  as   undoubtedly  It i.s an old snying that the only  thing more uncertain than a. horse  race is an election. Saturday's contest was no exception to the rule and,  while the Conservative party has not  made the success we predicted, it will  still have a sural) majority over all  other parties combined.  The result in this riding was, a.s we  anticipated, a victory for Thomas  Taylor but the division of lhe* other  vote wn.s totally unexpected. Mr.  Kellie's friends in the la.ft few days  worked well for him and we. believe  the large falling off in the supposed  vote for Mi: Bennett wa.i caused, to n  large extent, by his importation of an  alien at the last minute to bolster up  his cause. Britishers resent such outside instructors. A few sore head  supporters of the Independent candidate threaten a protest but it is nol,  taken seriously as Mi: Taylor's campaign was conducted in an upright  manner wliile there is even more than  a suspicion of duplicate   voting   in   a  Gov't, majority 7  which is  a   good   working   one  House of 12 meuilrers.  Tiro two big surprises were Victoria  and Vancouver. Even the "Times"  predicted air even break in the capital.  The reason is probably found in the  sectional cry raised at the last minute  that there Was "too much Mainland"  "ni the present cabinet. That and Mr.  Riley's recent arrival from Ottawa  with a Well filled sack accounts for the  result. In Vancouver it was thought  that either Martin or Baxter would be  returned with four Conservatives.  However, the Terminal city has  certainly turned down Martin aud returned to its old friend, the Conservative party,..that-it so loyally .supported  rrntil 1900, for it must be remembered  that there were two Conservatives in  ehe field in 1S90 who together polled  a much heavier.vote than the late G.  R. Maxwell.  In Nelson the anti-Houston faction  decided, at the last minute, to put  party before all and loyally supported  the old member- Mr. Houston must  thank Mr. R. S. Lennre and his large  personal   following   for   turning   the  scale in Jiis   favour'. The   d ef eat   of  T-JonTTATS. Goodeve, in Rossland, is  much to be regretted. A strong, clean  man, of great platform and organizing  ability he should have been elected  and it wn-������ only the mine owner's  organ, the Kosslarrd ".Miner", that  caused his defeat. The hostility of the  proprietors of that newspaper, whose  duplicity.was exposed by Mr. McBride  when Minister* of Mines, accounts for  one part of that paper's renegadisrn  and personal spite of the editor, who  wa.s unsuccessful in his recent still  hunt for a Government position, completes the talc.  Hon. A. B. jMcPhillips would bave  won anywhere outside Victoria where  his broad and honest view against the  Canadian Northern aroused great  hostility among the "old gang" of  sectionalists.     We trust a seat will be  arranged for him.  . ��������� **  By the elimination of Joseph Martin  stable government will be restored,  11 n event which, irrespective of party,  all true British Columbians will rejoice in.

Everywhere Poplar creek ores are
shown they create great excitement.
After causing a sensation at the Ke.v
Westminster exhihitioii they have
lieen taken to Spokane while a few
specimens exhibited Iiy J. J. Young.
M. L. A., at Victoria caused the
following appreciative reference in the
"A visitor to Victoria on Saturday
was J. J. Young, M. P. P., of Calgary,
Alberta, who spent the day in the city
on business after taking in New Westminster's fair. Mr. Young had with
him two small valises containing the
more valuable of the gold quart'/, and
telltiride specimens from Poplar creek,
which were loaned to the New Westminster people for their exhibition.
"They were too valuable," said Mr.
Young, to a Colouist reporter, "to
leave behind, or to check as baggage,
sol'had to bring them along."
Imagine a piece of yellow 'quartz not
much larger than a man's fist, but
worth .1>200 in gold, and a jagged sample broken with a sledge hammer, but
held together with hinges of gold and
containing over $400. Such specimens
are beyond the dreams of old gold
miners, but they were visible on Saturday at the Dominion hotel, where
many interested citizens called to see
them. Altogether* there were between
���fifty and sixty pounds of specimens
and tliey were all studded with the
unmistakable yellow metal, both fine
and coarse,-some of the gold sticking
out nearly as big as walnuts.
"How big a   ledge   is   there?"   was
"From two to six feet," Mr. Young
replied, "where the richest quartz was
taken from, but on bol h the Lucky
Jack and Swede properties several
other ledges have been found, all
currying high values in free gold.
These two properties, which ai e considered tlie best in the camp, were
acquired by Mr. XV. B. ��� Pool and
myself shortly after they were located.
We are doing systematic development
work bn both groups. Our tun nei on
the Lucky Jack is in about sixty feet
on the ledge, which cuts the mountain
almost vertically. The tunnel is all in
rich pay ore. We have also blown off
tlie face of the ledge for about sixty
feet where it crops oiit. We did this
to save the expense of keeping armed
guards, but there is still so much gold
showing that it has to be watched
night and day. Notwithstanding all
precautions several hundred dollars
worth lias been stolen. We expect to
have a stamp - mill put in at once,
though we may ship a few tons to our
mill at Camborne, on Fish creek, which
has just been installed to treat the ore
from the Oyster-Criterion."
"Is the  gold   found   over   a  large
"Yes, from Poplar creek to Fish
creek is some twenty-five to thirty
miles and the free gold belt has been
traced between these points and also a
considerable distance north and soutii
of them. Three stamp mills, each of
ten stamps, have been already erected
at Camborne and it will not lie long
before they give a good account of the
big gold ledges of that camp. But
Poplar creek," concluded Mr. Young,
' "will beat them all, if the sensational
discoveries are any indication���and
there is every reason to believe that
the values will continue."
 The.Colonistis informed that Messrs.-
Machin & Clarke of the Victoria branch
of the Provincial Mining Association,
made every effort to have the Poplar
creek specimens exhibited at the fair
here this week, but Messrs. Pool &
Young had previously promised to
loan them to the Spokane.fair, which
opens on the 7th. An urgent invitation was sent to these gentlemen .a
week ago, but it could not be accepted
for the reason already stated."
-The richness of the placer claims
owned by Clarence McDowell and
others is increasing with depth. The
Herald was shown the result of a
trial of three pans at about 60 feet
down, which netted about $2.75 in
gold. It is believed that a local company will be formed to exploit this
property and we are assured they wil
meet with success. Every, foot sunk
shows better and when bed rock is
reached the returns will probably be
very large.
Mr. McDowell will probably be in
Revelstoke before this issue of the
Herald appears and our citizens
would do well to invest in this promising proposition.

Maritime records since the Intra*
Auction of ironclad would seem to
fully justify the condemnation of the
new royal yacht, built by the Admiralty for the use of the British sovereign, but found to be unwieldy, if
not actually dangerous, to those on
board her. More than one terrible
naval catastrophe has resulted from
faulty construction, the modern Iron
or steel battleship being far more
dangerous than the old wooden war
Such a vessel ls likely to "turn turtle" and go to the bottom within a few
minutes, whereas the wooden war
ship, though full of water, would float.
The fires and engines In the modern
war ship add, moveover, to the dang*
��rs of the craft in case of accident.
The first accident which called attention to the terrible dangers of ironclads was the loss of H. M. S. Captain
tn 1871. She was a sea going, masted,
turret ship, of 6,900 tons, and was regarded as the finest fighting vessel In
the British navy. She was 320 feet
long, with a beam of 53 feet, a draught
of 25 feet 9% Inches, tvfth a freeboard
of only 6 feet 8 inches. The turret
armorwas 13 to 18 inches thick, and
that on the water line 6 to 8 inche.i.
She had an immense sail spread on
her three masts, and carried five hun*.
fired officers and men.
On September 6, 1871, she was manoeuvring in the Bay of Biscay with
the British Channel squadron, near
Cape Finisterre. Under sail, but witn
steam up, she was rolling at angles
from 12ii to 14 degrees in heavy
squalls of wind. The last seen of her
was at a quarter past one A. M.
Some of the survivors struggled to
Cape Finisterre. They reported tbat
the Captain, with steam up but screw
not working, and under three duble
reefed topsails, began to roll heavily
and then to lurch from side to side at
Increasing angles of from 18 to 28 degrees. She finally rolled to her beam
ends and low on her side, her masts
in the water. The sea r/ished down
the funnel onto the furnace fires, and
many of the engineers were scalded to
death. As the Cnptain slowly turned
over some of the men walked on her
bottom. Suddenly she sank, stern
foremost. Out of five hundred men
on board only, eighteen survived. The
catastrophe was attributed by the Admiralty to too great top-weights.
The second disaster to an ironclad
was unattended by loss of life, but it
emphasized the "sinkability" of tho
new ships. The British Channel
squadron left Kingstown for Queens-
town on September 1, 1875, when the
Iron Duke, steaming at seven knots,
struck the Vanguard four feet below
her. armor on the port quarter abreast
the engine room, making a rent twenty-five feet square, the .opening being
into the two largest compartments in
the ship. One hour after the collision
the Vanguard, which was heavily
down by the stern, , whirled around
two or three times and then sank, after the crew and officers had been
taken off.
Three years later a similar disaster
occurred to the German fleet when
the Koenig "Wilhelm collided with
the Grosser Kurfurst off Folkestone.
The ram ploughed up the armor as
If it had been an orange peel. The
water poured through the great
breach into the stokehold, flooding the
furnaces, and a heavy list to port laid
the vessel on her beam ends and prevented the crew from getting out tho
boats. The captain tried to run hev
into shallow water, but she sank
within five minutes of the time of being . rammed. Of a crew of 497, 216
were saved. The Grosser Kurfurst
t*was a turret ship of 6,600 tons.
But the most tragic of all these mis*
adventures was the loss of the Victoria flagship of the British Mediterranean squadron which occurred June 22
1893. The fleet was manoeuvring off
Tripoli in two columns, one led by the
Victoria, the other by the Camper-
flown. Admiral Tryon, on board tho
Victoria, ordered the two columns to
turn inward at an angle which would
inevitably bring the leading vessels
Into collision.
As the Vitoria and Camperdown approached each other it became evident
that one would strike-the-other.���Th��
screws were reversed when it was too
late. Four minutes after the signal
the Camperdown struck the Victoria,
almost at right angles, near the forward turret
The ram ploughed its way in ahout
ftlne feet, and the deck and iron work
buckled up before it. When the
Camperdown pulled away lt was seen
that the breach measured about 125
square feet, into which the water
poured. The watertight doors inside
both vessels were open at the time.
As the bow of the Victoria sank her
ctern rose and from the other ships
her screws could be seen whirling.
Admiral Tryon, on the deck house of
the victoria, said "it is all.my fault,"
but declined to accept assistance being convinced she would float. As the
tilt of the ship grew greater, the crew
were drawn up ln line on deck, excepting engineers and stokers,"and finally
the order was given to "jump." Tho
prew leaped into the water.
Suddenly there was a tremendous
roll to starboard, and the Victoria
dived, bow first. The last seen of Admiral Tryon he was on top of the
chart house. The number of officers
and men lost was 321.
Still unexplained is the loss of the
Spanish cruiser Reina Regente, In
March, 1895, while conveying members of the Moorish mission from
Spain to Tangier. She disappeared
in a violent storm, and no trace of
her was ever discovered. She waa
heavily armed for her size, and carried a crew of four hundred officers
and men. Catastrophes of less Importance were the loss of the Japanese
cruiser Unebl In some unexplained
way at soa, the floundering and loss of
the French floating battery Arrogant*
and the loss of the British gunboat*

to this ingenious but eccentric plan  to
secure your residence most of the timo

there Is rro moral obligation In a promise given under a state of deception or
to   an   Incompetent   person.     Secondly,
It does not appear that there ls any real

be the possible delay of five years in the

by a  duly accredited  agent.    In   view
o* these points, I think I can properly
advise you that it is not necessary for
J-ou  to  personally  fulfil!  your  promise
to your aant on  her  death-bed.    Still,
to  provide   against   any   possible  con**

her  sweetness   and   kindliness   seemed
naturally to appeal for sympathy and
support, and hence it was easy for her
to   take   strong   impressions   from   tho
moods of others.   Claude, in particular,
exercised   an   almost   supreme   control
over her.    Ills bold, confident, aspiring
nature was the opposite of her quiet,

: They did not linger long. P.osa had
her errand to accomplish, and Ralph
accompanied her to the other side ol
the wood, toward the village, and, after an affectionate parting, and a
���pledge to see her daily before his departure, he returned to Rolff House.
His mind was full of a weight of caro
ond doubt. Almost unconsciously, ha

the box that contained the mysterious

From the paper, he learned that tho

key.    He now resolved to gratify his

! .which  he  had  regarded  as  silly  ar.J
j STsilse.
I i "With the key in his pocket, he proceeded through the old hall, then down
a flight of stairs to the basement, in
���which there were several rooms, most
ot them empty and Illy lighted. A narrow dark passage led for some distance
���from the flight ot steps by which ha

of the house, and at the end of thi**

heavy stone walls through which there
rwas no communication, and access 'to
each was by a flight of steps from

|     As may be Imagined, the sudden dc-
j rarture for Burope of the young heir of
I "Rolff House had been tho cause of nn*
i aimltcd gossip  in  the  little   place.    In
��� some mysterious maimer, pretty much
i nil of thc legal transactions ln  whicli
Claude had  been  engaged  had  leaked
out and become the subject ol  public
talk, and, naturally, the truth had been
Improved upon in various ways as the
details passed from mouth to mouth.
j  The good burghers shook their heads
gravely as they commented on tho recklessness of the young man, and many
/were the predictions Ihat he would soon
"come to a bad end."   And when Lawyer  Saybrook's name  was  mentioned,
���there were knowing  nods and winks,
and voices were lowered as comments
jivere freely made on tlie sharp bargains
he had driven with the young man  In
supplying him with money for his European trip.      ��� .     ���
I' These stories had of course come to
tho ears of Farmer Bruyn.    The Rolff
property adjoined his lands on its western side.   The old wood, mentioned in
a previous chapter, extending across into
the hounds    of    the    property of  tha
shrewd, acquisitive old farmer, and for
5-ears he had had his eyes on it and the
adjoining meadow land as a most desir-
ciile addition to hl3 farm if it ever became purchasable.    But so long as tlio
aged mistress of Rolff House lived, no
such result was poslble.   The old lady
would not listen to a proposition to sell
a foot of her lands.   But now rumor wa3
busily circulating the tale that young
Rolff had  privately deeded all of tha
land ln  question to Lawyer Saybrook
as security tor certain moneys advanced
liim, and already the public was beginning to look upon the shrewd lawyer as
the ooming owner of Rolff House.
i  "Farmer Bruyn  credited   these  tales:
and he had no doubt that, if the lawyer
became the owner of thc property, ho
(would soon be disposed to put it in the
market for sale.   So he hastened at onca
to Inquire Into the matter.
j  The man of law was aellghted to see
the old farmer.   He shook his hand with
cordial warmth, and the keen, self-satisfied twinkle ln his eyes indicated that
perhaps  the visit was not unexpected
by him.     Nevertheless,    he   professed
surprise that the farmer could have any
business with htm In regard to the Rolff
estate, a-nd handed him a chair and sat
llown beside him with.a. well-assumed
air of interest and innocence.

remarked the lawyer, as  the old man
concluded: "In fact. I think I may say,
It Is a complete surprise. -Why,.really.,.

! "Xo need for surprise," Interrupted
the farmer. "I want the old wood and
the meadow land ",*etween it and the
road. I've had my eyes on that piece of
land for years; and I'm ready to pay a
good round price for it, money down;"
"Of course, of course," replied tho
lawyer. "You come directly to the

L El-'ORU the sorrow came upon Ireland there was a time of plenty  on the people, and a very good  time it was.   In every lull-slope  and  deep   in   the   valleys  tho  crops were thick in their yields.   O, it  was a laughing age of peace!   Now, the  land but covers its louely bosom witli j  the sadder brown of the talking rushes,  i. In Aiighray o' the Mountains whero  Eilisheen lived tliey hnd never heard of  fever or famine. Nor would she have  had parley with cither, but that she left  the mountains and stepped westwards.  She might have dwelt under tho purple  shadows of them nil her days but for au  untoward happening, for it was on a  fleecy dny of mist in the late autumn  that her mother was in the bog cutting  turf, and she saw a strange gray-green  herb growing on the edge of a pent-hole.  For better, for worse she gathered it.  There was nothing in that���������anyone with  natural curiosity would do the same;  but there was no need for her to nib-  nibble at it as she trudged slowly homc-  iwards with the turf-creel slung on her  ���������boulders; and the setting sun slanting  at her from behind Slieve Cladiah.  When the first giddiness came on her  mhse put it down to the weight of tho  dripping turfs, and staggered on.  .'���������'.     "It's the old nge that is beginning to  ���������how on mc," she said to herself.    "I'll  take mind to let the girsha herself do  tihe carrying from this on."  With the thought came a smile.  "It's not so ancient 1 am at all; for  fcimsclf says I am as young-lookin' us  ever."  But whatever it was, age or sleep, it  gave her little time. Her sight grew  blurred, and she wandered off and on the  track, just saving herself blindly from  sudden falls.  When she reached the bend of the  Toad, at the smithy, she knew she would  never reach home. She gave a sharp  cry of agony, and her husband's arrri3  closed round' her. He had been coining  ���������Jong to meet her. She never felt bis  ���������touch or heard the wr.il in his voice as  She sa*w the death-mark on her face. Por-  Ihaps hereafter he would tell her how he  suffered.  Even Eilisheen could not keep him  from listening for the sound of vanished  footsteps through the shieling, or watching for the sight of another face round  4he hearthstone. When the old year  -passed hc followed them���������and her.  TEalisheen stayed on in Aughray until  lie whins pricked their spiky green with  ���������scented yellow. Then she waited no  longer. There was a pride in her, and a  'certain aloofness thnt kept her solitary  'in the midst of many. Her pride could  not soften the heart-break that lay in  the emptiness of the house where she  had been horn.  "It's not  by such  a cold  hearth ye  should be-aittin'at all, at all, if the man  sad the sinse of a man, an' the stren'th  - :tf wan."  And TEilisheen turned away from the'  trell-meaiit comfort of the neighbors,,  knowing to her pain they spoke truly.  So now, as she put together the bits'  *���������,**.' things she was taking with her, h-er  eye* were smarting with fiery tears; but  ���������he would not let them fall. She looked  ���������Up at tho man who leaned over the half-  door, watching her. She did not speak.  'If lie could find naught to,say she would  be silent. As for words; au' talk! It  ���������r������U promised so much in the saying, and  .gave so little. He shuflled and fidgeted,  ���������and could not keep his eyes off her, try  <as he might! The loose waves of her  Suiir fell in wonderful curls and clusters  ������ver her homespun gown of blue. Tliat  nut-kissed hair; where the red and gold  look their pleasure, and made her seem,'  in that land of black-haired people, like  the princess out.'of one^ of thoir: own  fairy tales, with a living crown woven  on her white brow.  Then, because the time was shortening,  he spoke in to her. His face was a v������v*f-  pleasant one; but there was au indecision in the mouth and chin 'that his  character wrought out. Yet she loved  him. Her strong nature had wrapped  his weak one in its power, and had given  kirn attributes he had no claim to. And  ���������let Oh wclll he had for sure .put himself into many a trouble for many a long  day, because he would not give -her up.  His mother had set herself against tlie  match just for contrariness, and because  ���������he had a warm seat hy her son's cabin,  and did not want another woman about  the place. There was no need for .two  to do the work of one.  "But I will come for you, Eilisheen,  =^eeo^Ul_don'tyLoverthe big hills and the  long roads beyond.

She slipped away and ran down the  valley road with no word of parting. He  climbed upon the stone, and stood shading his eyes gazing after her. The loneliness of that girlish figure in its blue  gown! A feeling deeper than ever he  had felt before surged up in him, like a  wave, threatening to overthrow the  flimsy barriers indolence and weakness  had builded. He staked it all on one  chance. Would she pause and look  back!  "Ahl if you do, bit o' maythorn, it  will not take me long to be even with  your small feet, an' it's together wc  push forward or come back."  But she never stopped nor stayed.  Tlie tears were dropping so thickly that  the road itself was swaying underneath  her. She could not have seen him had  she looked. As ho stood, hesitating, seeing the gray distance gathering round  her liko a shadowy shroud, a boy camo  calling along the village lane.  "Milagh o' the Farm! Milagh! Milagh I Your mother .is .waitin' for ye  this hour past."  Ho jumped down nnd went homewards*. *  ' He was a man, too! Tall, and the  hair of him red and long and curling.  Hi3 eyes puzzled her, they seemed so familiar, and yet unknown. It was not  until long months afterwards sho knew  their secret. They had the changing  beauty of the sea in them. He had some  nets slung over his shoulder, and his  jacket was made of fur. His fnee was  ���������tnnned brown by sun and rain, and the  mouth wus, hidden by a long, fair mustache. He did not seem to her to be a  real man at all, he was so unlike nny  she ind seen, and she called to mind  Btories of drowned sea-kings who appeared to the daughters of men round  the solitary coast. But n3 she stooped  to lift her treasure from the grass these  thoughts had no hold upon her. She had  no heed of wraiths or aught else as she  faced him.  ' "Why did you do this? Think, had  you fallen there below."   She shuddered.  But he threw back his head and stared  straight into her eyes.  "Because you nre the one woman in  tho world for me. That is my answer  to you."  He turned and swung down the sheep-  track to the farther shore.  ��������� ��������� - ��������� ������      .���������..'*:������������������.������������������.        . *  When the whins grew scented with  yellow, and the birds preened themselves, and trilled each other���������'lqve-songa,  she haunted the hill of the gray cairn,  because from there the long road lay  plainly stretched as a silver ribbon. Arrd  she saw many travelers speeding or loitering out of the gray distance. But none  of them mattered to her. Yet it was  early dnys, and she cast no doubt on the  dream of the future. Only her face  grew white and the youth went out of  her mouth and eyes. The woman in thu  cottage made it into a laughing-stock.  "For shurel no man would foot it all  that long,-lone way for a bit of a gir-  leen at the end, an' a red-haired wun,  too! Ah no!' Jlen were men, an' it  was ever the nearest that was the dearest with them." .  Under these stings Eilisheen grew- listless. One day as she turned her eye**!  wearily from the sight of the passing of  the springtime, trying not to know that  the promise of fruition thnt Iind lain  like a soft green web on the land was  merging rapidly into the deeper groerr  of fruitage, she heard a man's voice  crooning a ballad,'on.! the.'other side of  the old rath. She stood very quietly; but  every nerve was tense with exaltation.  Why hnd she doubted? It was a man  from the mountains! No one else could  know that song; the sweet Irish words  dropped like honey one by one in the  -sunny-stillness. =. ,   I think I -could Journey a long way the  world over V  !"Without finding the like ot you.

But the fever and the famine stalked  through Uie glamor of it; they never  passed a shieling, no matter how humble, -without one or other stepping in to  sit for a while by the fire.  Now Eilisheen was a 'mountain girl,  and this solitary country, with its  leagues of flat morns3es trailing off into  the gray sky, ahead, with no hill or coppice to break tho monotony, made her  .lA'rnid. The purple-sided Aughray mountains, threaded by the blown 'silver of  the leaping streams, had her still in their  spell. But to her wonderment she experienced a stronger fascination than  that of the rain-thralled giants behind  lier. For, as she walked along a road  that was loosening into a cart-track,  four days after leaving home, she felt a  stinging wind on her face; but a wind  that was as wine to h-er, and, for the  time, put her sorrows away from her.  She began to sing, and her tired feet  kept dancing amongst the tiny heart-  case that dappled the sa.ndb.iuks. All  the while she (heard a sound that is like  none other the- whole world over���������tlie  sound of the unfettered ���������'sea.' breaking  upon a lonely shore. But she knew it  not until, rounding a high slope,.strewn  with forgotten wreckage, and dried seaweeds, she stood face to face with the  ocean. Fot an instant she waa motionless; then the Viking blood leaped in her  veins, the seajlove came upon her, and  she ran down the shnllowy beach crying  and laughing with pure joy. She stood  at the edge of this new wonder,-wherein  every wave was a breath of living  beauty. And the strength of it! Ah!  and the great green breadth of it, flaked  and ringed with the ceaseless hurry of  its Mining and going! She bruised her  mouth upon the masses of wet shells  and wrack, and slipped her arms up to  the elbows in the crystal water of the  .glancing pools, crooning all the time like  amother over a tiny child. And this Joy  ���������this Glory���������was hers!  In a waking dream she reached her  journey's end. It was a black enough  welcome. The fever had been there before her. and it did not pnss the doorway alone. They were very bitter about  it,-poor-souls!���������"Just-a slip-of-a-girlecn.  i.ti' she doin' no harm, an' they witli but  the wan."  The man's heart was maybe the sorer;  but he did not let Eilisheen go by for all  (Uie ache. He could not bridle his wife's  tongue. Between the gusts of her 'wild  sobbing she looked darkly on the stranger, until the girl felt that she-was fcak-  TI-IE LATE FO  PIS LEO'XIII.  rightly fill! 'She had no choice". Her  cheeks burned as she thought of going  north again. "He would think I was  hung'rin' for him, an' could not content  myself away!"  She would stay the days out; it would  not be a long wait, either. The heat of  summer was on them now. Her tenderness waked for the lonely mother-heart  in the little cabin, and the man was her  own father over again. Besides, whose  hand was it who knocked at the weeny  window of her room, and called her to  rise and come forth in storm and shine?  Whose but the sea?  The year mellowed and sickened.  One day in the autumn she wandered  over the bank-heads, herding the goats.  It was a golden day, amber everywhere,  save at the sky-line; there the storm-  cloud lay blue-gray, like a trail of smoke,  shadowy, yet impenetrable. She dallied,  fascinated as ever by the restless majesty hundreds of feet below, and suddenly  a puff of wind arose and lifted the kerchief off her hair, and carried it over the  edge. It wae a slight thing of little  value; but to her it was the first snap  in a chain of pearls. It was TMilagh's  last gift to her. She peered for one  dizzy moment over, and saw it had  caught in e, briar some ten feet down.  The thought of such a descent made her  fall half-swooning on tlie grass. "It waa  the bad hick come to her an' she'd never  see him more."  When she got up to go homeways -Uie'  Swaying a little she went-to meet the  singer. As 'her shadow fell upon the  grass he started up, and held out his  hands.  "Donnan the singer I" she said.  "Ay, Eily; but 'tis the flrst song has  passed his lips since you left us."  His face whitened and darkened under  the stress of the moment.' Ib had never  been a secret between them, or anyone  else in Aughray, that he loved her. But  Milagh, was his friend. There she stood,  this love of a life, and ah! how changed  she was!  ' They spoke of trivial things, the common gossip of parted friends, and all  the -time, * underneath the unmeaning  glow of talk, he saw the unspoken question in her eyes. His own gaze wandered past her. At last, soft ns a snow-  flake, came the name, "Milagh? What  of him?"  "Oh! se for Milagh," he answered  lightly, "he ls as big as ever, an' getting  on to doin' well, an' bettor, so they say."  "So they eay!" she repeated wonder-  ingly.

There was little or  no need of words between them  "I think I know whnt you keep front  telling me," she snid slowly. The speech  was hurting her; her tlnont was like a  flame.

"Then he did send me word? He has  not forgotten?"  But his silence was enough.  After a while sire asked, without looking at him,"Who is the woman?" !  "How did you know that?" he replied.  "Ah!" she said, nnd the ghost of a.  cruel smile showed in.her face, "there is  always a reason for men's ways. It is  only we poor fools who change ns tho  wind does, without any sense at all. But'  ���������i man! Oh! they plan out every foot  id the road tlrey journey, with ils kind-*  ness and1 its faithlessness.   Who is she?",  "A stranger, well-to-do.

"And you came the long travel just to  tell  me tlris?."  He looked at her averted face.-  "Ay, just to keep ynti from wasting  the sweet of your life." He was not fit to  be trod by your little foot. He has the  soul of a bat in his big man's body.

In silence he took her snow-cold hands,  and watched the slow tears dropping  down her face. In silence, too, he took  the long road home, and so passed out of  her life for always.  ������* ������ ��������� ������ .       ��������� ���������  Then her days sank into grayness.  -There -was-not!iing-to_remerubcr,.Lieca.irso.  Memory meant pain. There was less to  hope for. Milagh hnd seen to tliat. The  present was. hers alone, with empty  dreams to fill it full of mockery. Blank  days, and blanker nights, yet full of the  summer's rarest witcheries���������tho sun-  kissed flowers, the strong breath of sea-  scented grass, the slow dawns, and purple-misted sunsets. And through all, the  sea itself, pulsing and leaping, foaming  and surging under the smile of a sky  never rain-clouded.  These things passed before her like  shadows; their joys of springing sap and  blooming bud did not enter into the  darkened house of her soul; but unconsciously to her the beauty was healing  her.    In  time  even   the  thrawed  faith  tic (>   at the mere    of  wind and  tide,  ���������>cu red =0 pilifullj   nail.  She need not have feared for him. On  nil thesea-border there waa none braver  or more skilled in the cunning wisdom of  the sea. There was the glamor and  gloom of mystery about ltim, arrd he let  it remain so. Hia home was perched on  a tiny island of rock and turf, ut tin*,  mouth of the buy, and there he had built  'him a house. It was accounted a) castle  by the folk on the mainland, and they  told in hushed tones of the curious  iwoods and rare hangings he had garnished liis nest with, things cast at his  ]Very threshold by the wanton hands oi  the sea. For by that island many, ships  came to anchor, and their harborage was  fathoms down, down on tho cruel, jagged  teeth of hidden reefs. On til!- landward,  'sunny side of-his kingdom, Freel the  Frisian mide a sleeping place for those  whom he found when the storm calmed,  and there they sleep to this day.  He spoke to few, and no one had  orossed his doorway. Ho was held as an  alien, a stranger, one whose, ways wero  outlandish, and only the fact of his iron  fUt, and manner of using it, kept the  Bsher-peoplei from laughing at him when  he* strode amongst them. But, after  months of silent interest, Eilisheen grew  to think, him the incarnation of the sea  ���������itself; strong and mysterious.  Still hoping against hope she climbed  the hill and scanned the road to thc  north. Perhaps the old love was dying,  and she was striving to keep it alive for  the sake of memory. Milagh's niche was  empty; she would not have allowed him.  had he come, to step irrto her heart and  life again. She was amazed at her own  inconstancy, and so strove to quicken the  whitening embers of affection into thc  ���������crimson ilaine of love, by spending lono  hours of watching on the gray cairn. It  was about that time she remembered  'how to smile, and she used to sing to  herself, nnd then stop, ns if the past had  just put its icy hand on her and frozen  the music dumb. But she could not help  her face changing into happy beauty.  Oue day in mid-win ter, when tho after-  inoon was glooming to dusk, and the sea  was moaning sullenly, she ran lightly  up. tho worn sheep-track, holding her  scarlet hood round her closely,, for .the  air wus nipping. "For the last time,"  she said, as she stood breathless on the  summit, and the thought brought little  or no sorrow with it.  Before she oould scan the frozen road  beneath her a voice spoke softly out of  the twilight.  "Why do you water*- for one who comes  not?"  She knew who stood there, and some  foreboding seized ht-r, she who was so  screne-and-calm-in-'iior-bcariiig,  might be woven to perfection again  It was the crisis in Eilisheen's life,  and  leant against the fronted stories for sup  port. She could not .speak, and thc deep  voice went on.  "I've followed you every time you  came here, although you saw me not. It  waa pain to mo to watch you grieving  for a sorrow that is no sorrow."  Tho pride of a rejected love stung her  into anger.  "What do you���������you���������know of my sorrow?"  Sho stood up very strai<rhtly.  "You are a sea-man, and u stranger;  w-hat can you know of tlio lives*of land-  folks? Nothing! You only guess. Our  ways and yours tliey never meet."  "I've heard all," he suid. "I know you  wait still, and watch always, to see the  falee mountain lover come laggard from  (ne! The sea and mel And you for us  both. You, and no other, forever. And  t will tell you another thing. Who but  yourself is like uuto me in this land of  strangers? I am no alien to you, or you  to me. Seel we are alike iu iace," in  form, and in���������onr loves!"  He laughed low as he saw her quick  gesture of dissent. The belated sun  turned through tire mist, and one fierce  spear from Iris burning came to the help  of the man and his wooing. It rested  on his uncovered head, and on hers, irom  which the hood had slipped, and bathed  them both in thc same glow. She raised  her eyes and looked at him. It was as  ho said. Tho red-bronze curls, and underneath the changing eyes, blue to gray*  green 1 The level brows, nnd tho lips  cut into flexible curves! Ami the dented  chin! It was her own face looking back  nt lier, and yet���������and yet���������it was as utterly unlike as it was like. For tho face  is a mask; granted a uia-sk of beauty at  best; but we look nt the soul for the  understanding of the masker.  The light dazzled her, so that she  missed that supreme moment in the life  of a man and woman, when each soul  thrusts aside the body and asks tho  truth for itself, without a mediator; but  he saw her dreaming soul awake, aird \.  peer for ono instant through her eyes,  wistfully, pleadingly, and he rend thc unspoken que3tiou.  He smiled and his voice hushed to a  murmur.  "You may doubt all else, life! death 1  the stars! the sea! but you must never  doubt this, never in this world or another, that I love you, and that you are  mine. Even if I leave you now, and you  do not see me again, or hear me speak  again, you will be mine all the same, and  I am not afraid of another man taking  my place." - ,,  "You aro very sure," she said, nnd her  eyes stared down ou the rusted heather i  at her feet.  "You do not look nt me, Eilycensi. Are  you angry with me for telling you? I  had to; 1 go away to-morrow seal-hunting, to the Outer Islands, and it is no  work for your small hands, else I would  take you, for the waiting will be hard on  you."  "What waiting?" she said scornfully.  "Until I come back," Ire said tenderly.  "But you cannot escape ine. I will not  turn to another girl, and let your eyes  grow dim looking vainly for me. No! 1  will come back, alive or dead, to claim  you, and I will find you watching! Bui  it will not be,the inland road you'll be  sitting by, but'beside the sea." i  Sho turned Tound to speak, but he  caught her hands in his and crushed  them to his breast.  "Ah! do not speak.

It was alleged, that tlris  was a virtual monopoly and held the  prices of lumber much above those  warranted by the cost of production.  So persistent were these allegations,  of which the foremost spokesman was  Hon. Thos. Green way, of Maui to ha,  th'ul. the Dominion Government decided to hold an Inquiry into the mutter  arrd appointed Mr. Justice Richards, of  'Winnipeg, to fake evidence and  report.  As a result this Inquiry wus opened  in Winnipeg the other day A. .T. Andrews representing the complainants  and Mr. Howell, K.C, the Association.  Mr. Andrews in his opening statement, produced the rules of the Association hut was unable to present any  evidence proving the existence of the  alleged combine. He also stated that  his clients were wholesale and retail  dealers and he could not claim that  they were injured by the existence of  the association, possibly they were  benefitted because of tlie increased  prices they were, able to get for their  lumber, therefore they were rrot pecuniarily interested in this inquiry,  and as the Dominion govern ment hnd  refused to pay the cost of an investigation, it* rested wilh the parties residing outside of the city to say whether  tbey would prosecute it at their own  expense or not. On behalf of his  clients he had no evidence to olt'er  and personally lie had nothing but  feelings, of friendship for the members  of the association.  This practical ...'.admission of defeat  drew from Mr. Howell the remark  that he could not see how Mr. Andrews could have such feelings after  having made such charges against the  association and vilifying statements  against its members.* . Mr. Andrews  stated that if what" he had said had  vilified them, he was prepared to make  such'statements outside of the court  room.  ���������His lordship stated tliat ho had received a number of communications  from outside points stating that evidence can be given there to prove that  a'.combine exists, but as particulars  bad not been given he could not say  whether sittings would lie held at  these points or not. Before he wonld  decide to do so.it would have, to be  shown to hirrr that prima facie evidence  to prove the. charge would be forth-  coining. The inquiry, would bo adjourned for two weeks and in the  event of sittings of the commission  held rrt outside points, all parties interested should receive due notice. Mr.  Atkins. K.C. iind J. S. Hough. K.C,  also appeared on behalf of the Western  Retail Lumbermen's association.  Later advices state that* it is improbable.the Inquiry will be further ex- j  tended. The statements made were  incorrect in the first instance. Tbe  Western Lumbermen"**- Association is  treating all classes fairly and their  prices have only been raised to a  figure commensurate with the extra  cost of logging and lumbering consequent upon recent advances in wages  and material.

After disrobing   the   bather   enters  the vapor room,   which   is   kept at 11  temperature   of   about   110     degrees, !  which opens the pores thoroughly and  causes all foreign matter  in   them'   to j  be eliminated by perspiration.    When ���������  this is done the patieu'; is stretched on '  a table and   rubbed   witli  medicated  salt until the skin exhibits a soft glow.  An interval is then allowed for cooling  when tlio hot room is entered where a  dry .heat of about 100 degrees i.s   maintained.       Next  comes   the   shampoo  slab   upon'which    the    nerves    arc  manipulated, overy   important   nerve  being subject to ;i thorough system  of  massage, and afterwards   the body   is  washed   with   soap   and   hot   water.  Then   a   bath   robe   and   slippers are  provided and  the   patient   is   walked  gently up and down the cooling   room  until thoroughly  cooled   after   which  the final rubbing down   is   given  and  alcohol   applied if   there appears any  danger from cold.  Mr. .1. O'Connor, .the operator, is an  expert masseur and chiropodist and is  able to treat those requiring the  assuaging of pain by the osteopathic  process. Mr. 'Morgan is to be congratulated on instituting this great  necessity in Revelstoke. Railway  men, in particular, will find it a great  boon when fatigued .'.after long  stretches of duty.
