Constantinople, Sept. 0.���������Though  there has been no further disturbance  at Beirut since Sunday, great uneasiness amounting almost to . a panic  prevails among the Christians, many  trf whom have sought refuge in Lebanon.     The   Porte intends to concen-  ���������trute 50.UOO Ur70,0U0"tiobps7i;t Adtiun-  ople. It is said 2,000 insurgents have  heen surrounded at Kirk Kilisseir and  tbgir annihilation i.s expected.  Berlin, Sept. 0.���������German jiapers  totlay blame the United States for the  riot at Beirut.    One paper  sees iu  the  . American Minister's action in connection with the alleged assassination of  the American Vice Consul at Beirut  which later proved to be untrue and  tht'. subsequent United States naval  demonstration in Turkish waters a  yearning on the part of that country  lo mix up' iii European politics. It  attributes the Beirut riots to this.  London, Sept. I).-The "Times" Sofia  correspondent says the insurgents have  laid up large stores of provisions iu the  mountains and even contemplate a  winter campaign. The suffering or  the women and children " thereby will  lie appalling, but the insurgent leaders  believe- that ill clad Turkish troops  will suffer more than themselves,  owing to their inability to obtain supplies m a devastated country with interrupted communications.  Paris, Sept. 0.���������A telegram from  Cairo, Egypt, says disquieting rumors  are current in regard to the situation |  in Assyria*. Bedouins 'are arriving  from tha Arrsh desert who say the  Druzes are in arms and fears are entertained of a massacre in Ivebanon.  Pakis, Sept. 0.���������Despatches from  Oran, Algeria, show that the defeat of  the insurgents by a French force near  Almoungar, in which the French lost  57 killed and wounded, was one of lhe  most brilliant of the recent feats of  ,the French army in Algeria.

Brown, of this city, was  the only representative from British  Columbia at the annual meeting of  the above association held in Calgary  Sept. 1st to -illi. As there weie over  100 competitors it is not yet known  what places Mr. Brown obtained in  several of the matches. However, he  got in 1 out of 0 competitions and was  13th in the Grand Aggregate. This is  more than ct editable as several of the  ���������competitions weie at 800, 900 and 1000  yards, ranges at which it is impossible  to practice here. On the second afternoon there was a terrific wind and  rain stoi in which played havoc with  lhe shooting at 1000 yards in the  Merchants' match.  All1.

Camuobnk, Sept. 8.���������The big No 2  vein on the Eva has been struck at  the 700 ft. level. The .stamp mill is  practically finished and it is expected  that the tram will be running by the  15th, at latest.  I went up to the Oyster-Criterion  tram a couple of days ago and found it  working smoothly taking up supplies  to the mine, A big force is at work  blocking out ore for the mill which  should strut running before the end of  the month.  The recent big discovery near Trout  Lake was on the Winslow claim  owned by J. Grant, G. McLeod and  P. Murphy, situated about five miles  along the S'ii*iniit���������t*riii*. Craig and  Hillman, who own the York grotrp  near it, are preparing to work at once  ind will put in an d-30 ft. tunnel to  ta*i the Winslow vein, which they  clainr goes through their property.  Another group, the Lucky Jim", will  he worked by Murphy, McLeod and  Bennett this fall. This was another  location of Orange Hamilton's and  some ir>'500 ore was obtained from it in  18f)������.  Revelstoke's Labour Day Celebration Passed off Magnificently ��������� Fulton Cup Match  Won���������Other Events.  If ever a city had reason to he proud  over1 air inaugural celebration it is  Revelstoke. Wu did well and that s  all theie is lo sry about il. From lire  opening event, the ptoce*.sion, to the  close, the smoking corn ori, everything went, with such a vim that even  old timers, who thought their ideas  were moss grown, came up to the  scratch nobly and did all in their  power-for the success of Iti'Vclsloke's  First Annual Labor Day Celebration.  Orrt of town readers ask why, and  now lire JlKitAU) proposes (o tell  theiri.  The slarter was tho great  I'llOCUSSION  which, in.rgrir.-rlcd hy labour, developed into a showing ol" our- merchants'  goods that would throw into tlie shade  many oil ies ol" larger population. The  bigh'm prise was Walter Bews' float.  Nol, even entering into thr calculations of the parade eoiiiinil tee it  pi lived a most alt r.icl ive foal in e. As  what we would term a ������������������symphony in  gieen and while" it was .a most artistic emblem of the gentlemen of the  mortar and pestle. C. B.

Howson'*-; Hoar, w.us also a  good one and we think he missed a  prize by trying a pun. A house on  wheels is too palpable a play upon  words to seeirie recognition amongst  those grave and leverend seigneur**.,  tlie judges. And ,iUo the Machinists  put in a float, the very best in our  opinion of the whole outfit. Representative of tho union ot the cralt and  supported hy 75 of the member**;, il  stood head and shoulders ahove anything in the patade as what one may  call a real float. The only fraternal  society to turn ont was the  i.

A. ot M., who put in an  iip'pe.iriince to the extent ot 75 .md,  within the limitations hereinafter suggested, we think as an union procession the judges' decision should have  been vaiied. The day was Labour  Day and nothing else and, as the  prizes weie "given for not. only the  lloat but also '"appearance," to use the  wotds ot the piogianrme, the only  representative labour union appearing  in the parade was entitled, without  the slightest shadow of a doubt, to the  picinier position on the prize list. But  the judges thought otherwise and in  their wisdom gave the following tale  of precedence. We understand there  is a protest in, which will be considered this evening.

Their "Art"   made  another   long   run, reaching   well lrt'-  yonil   centre, and   shot,   to  the home  which   kept   the   ball well within thr  Kamloops  defence Hire for a couple of  minutes.     ln tho scrimmage hack the  ball wenl, out of bounds and there was I  rr lace oil" near centre.     Graham got it  out, as he usually did throughout tlie  game, and halted   it over  to Melville,  who carried it the I) ilance of  the fluid  and   then   passed   to  McCulloch who  made   the   first   goal  ior Revelstoke,  the time being 5 nriirs.     Some dispute  arose as to whether thc ball was in the  net, or   slightly  over'  it, hut the-go.il  was  awaided   and, to relieve tension,  Mv. George retired as umpire his place  heing taken by-Mr. Thos. Taylor.    The  dispute only lasted a few minutes and  play w.us resumed at 8.27.   "This game  wirs largely in  the centre, although it  ran  near  Revelstoke's go il early, the  pie-isure being relieved by "Wickens,  who played a stai game throughout.

Revelstoke will at last have a permanent institution for young men in  the Junior Conservative Club which  w ill auspiciously innugiualed at a  meeting held in Selkirk Hall on Tires-  day evening last. ��������� Although tlie idea  had been only mooted ior a week  great enthusinsni.wns manifested and  already over- fifty names have heen  placcd'on the list. The meetings will,  until suitable iooms are obtained, he  held in Selkirk Hall probably on Monday and Friday evenings. It is proposed to make the instution a permanent one and invite to membership all young men suhsctihirrg to  Conservative principles, although  some may he slightly under the age  necessaiy to become voters.  At Friday's meeting Mr. XV. XV.

As the club will use the Conservative  headquarters until the election i.s over,  the matter ol subscriptions, etc. was  laid over until th.it lime.

The Government Determined to  Meet the House at the Earliest  Possible Moment ��������� Session  Opens November 26th.  (From Our Own Correspondent.  Victoria, H.C. Sept. 8.���������Many were  sin prised to hear that the date of the  elections had been changed Irom 'list j  loHrd October. The new dales are as  follows: Nomination, Sept, illth and  election as stated ahove. The Legislature will meeL on November 2llth in a  special session the reason for which  has not yet been made public. In an  interview Willi the "Colonist" lhe  Premier gave Ihe follow ing stilleinenl,  which will be consideied sufficient by  most people.  "It has bierr a sort of political tradition in British Columbia in the past,  to postpone the mooting of the House  as long as possible, arrd when an  election was necessary to put the  I election as far in the future as could  he done within tho letter of the law.  [ I propose to hold the elections aud  meet, the House with the leasl possible  del iy.  "At the closing of the House, after  the defeat of the late government, j  promised tluiL the election would be  brought on as soon as practicable.  AVhen the dale was first fixed it was  thought thai/ the .-list, of October  would be the earliest dato practicable.  However, it has heen discoveted to lie  possibla to hold lhe electrons much  sooner1. The voteis' lists are now in  order, there" being practically no  appeals to delay mutters and, theie-  I'ote, rro diflicitlly presents itsell toil a id holding (he elections on the date  last chosen. We have been taunted  with being a government 011 suHrance  and without any mandate fiom the  eleetois, and we do not propose lo be  subject to the suspicion that wo desire  to hold oflice one day longer than the  electors will srrstairr its in that positibn.  "Secondly, that the government  consider it necessary to have ithe  endorsement ol the" electorate and to  ���������submit to the Hourie at as.early a date  as possible ceilain reforms'��������� tliat are  deemed necessary to he immediately  introduced iu|hejx*st interests of the  province." *Our policyTn largely; basetl  upon the determination to thoroughly  leorganize tho fiscal system, and by  that arrd other practical reforms to  restore confidence in the financial and  political administration of the  province.  "ram fully aware that the'opponents of tho government will in .ill probability seriously criticize the coui.se  we have adopted, and accuse its .  having taken an ''undue advantage of  thc .situation. We must, of course, be  prepaied for that kind of tiring and  trust lo the good sense of the people  to acquit us of even the semblance ol"  sharp practice. 'No political use whatever h.ts been made of the change of  dates, not a single person outside thc  members of the executive having acknowledge of what was proposed; and  the members of the executive had  only considered the question since the  Court of lievision sat on the Mist.  Both political parties are, therefore  on exactly the same footing.  "In taking the present course the  government is placing the interests ol  tho country before paitizan considei-  ations. The government aird its sup-  poiters will be placed at adisadvarit.tge  rather than at au advantage by tlie  change. Much organization that wa.s  contemplated, and an extensive political itinerary mapped out, will have lo  be foregone.  "You may say that the campaign  from this mit_will_he_'i.horl, sharp and  decisive.'"  Candidates.  New* Wkstmixstish, Sept. 8.���������The  Liberals have chosen another victim in  the person of Aid.

They come with  the sanction of divine authority, and  (echo the voices of thc prophets. They  ������re spoken by John, thc herald of  Jesus, the Messiah, who confirmed  them by His teaching, and their truth  ts proved in human  experience.  Note the  terms.    "I.iio" means thc  perfect possession  ot  every power of I  human nature.    This includes thc will!  to use each power.   To have a period |  body would be glorious, but none pos-1  jesses it.   When Socrates saw one that  seemed complete hc cried, "Jove 1 how  beautiful!"    Wc   have  liis  enthusiasm.  'More splendid is the life of the spirit  *n man, and it is to this these words  refer.    Each   of  us   knows  some  one  ������*ho possesses in rare.degree this life.  Such  interpret  to   us  the  divine;   wc  instinctively feel they arc of God. "On  God  and  Rodlike  men   wc  build   our  trust."       But  even   these  have   their  faults; only One has ever lived on earth  perfect in all things.   Imperfection, unless righted, tends to death.   We cannot stand still, we  are  ever  growing j  better or worse.   How we fight against  toe downward tendency,  seeking help  from, such   as  we  think  can  help   us  grow  better!  So wc  tie  ourselves  to  the physician, the teacher, the friend.  Is   it not  true  that the best  wish  of  your best moments  is  that you  may  become better ? And we have all found  that, beyond a certain point, th������;vc is  no help in a man-    Once there came  unto our world a Perfect Man, " the  Son   of  God,   with   power."  He  gave  ���������Himself to the work of redeeming mc.n  from death to life, and, throii-jti His  spirit. He is a constant Savi-jur. "lie  that believeth in the Son has everi'tst-  ing life."  "Believeth" It means more than  assent to the statement of the Gospel.  Faith is willing self-surrender to God.  'Only thus can HU vitality impart itself  to us. This is possible for every one.  ���������They are self-deceived who think otherwise. All about us are those ignorant, weak and hard pressed as you are,  ���������who, because they open heart and mind  to Him, arc growing better. Are nut  thev who refuse to do this fools and  blind?  The condition for every one is obedience. .r.t is so in all relationships. To  effect O cure the physician must be  obeyed, the teacher must be followed,  the friend honored, and if the Redeemer is to save from death to life our  part is to honor, follow and obey.  And now note the alternative:���������*'Hc  that   obeyeth   not   Uie   Son   shall   not  see lite; but the wrath of God abideth  on him."   Perhaps you persuade yourself that thi-s is a visionary statement  and are 'indifferent to it.    Remember,  there is relationship between you   and  God.    He is your "heavenly Father."  God cannot be indifferent to you- You  are and always.*will-be'His child.      tl  is the worst blunder orre can make to  think that God is careless about him.  Do the words, "the wrath of God,"'  seem cruel words?    Nevertheless, cm  human relationships explain them.   We  are more than inhabitants; we are citizens of New York, having certain inherent rights      and   obligations.      .Its  laws are thc measure oi these.

A great teacher said :  "Men are ruined by their best ana  Hearest friends, not by their indulgent  fondness, but by the noble example that  is never followed, and by the noble invitation that is never answered.." Experience has taught some oi us that  this is true.  Now, so long as God is, every soul  must feel His power. He that loves  ��������� -wid obeys is blessed in the thought ol  God. The revelation of his kindness  is unfailing, and it transforms thc  character that gratefully receives. Il  is equally true, that he that disobeys  must suffer loss of good, for each soul  bas to touch God, and as they do this  He becomes blessing or curse. You  are either a better or worse man because God is. And this is the Gospel! You recall how Jesus loved Jerusalem as she had never been loved by  a son, and she rejected Him. Then  it was Himself He could not save her  people from. "O Jerusalem! If I had;  not come and spoken unto them thev  had not had sin!" Here is the awful  power of disobedience.

H nrst-eIa*k\vPv!^--J  Sheep Prospects in Canada.  The Farmers' Advocate writes in respect lo the sheep industry :���������"Now is  their opportunity" (referring to tht  flock owners) "for selection and improvement, so as to be ready  for the upward turn of the  tide when it comes. Indeed,  it appears to be close at hand.  The demand for mutton continues to  grow, and it is quite certain that its  limit will not be reached yet awhile.  Hence breeders may, we feel sure, look  forward with confidence." It is quite  certain that Canadian breeders will be  far better and larger customers for oui  stud rams when the demand for theii  own stock is an increasing one. Thus  the prospects for the demand during  the coming season from Canada arc  probably better than they have been for  some time past. Despite all the drawbacks which the sheep industry has to  contend with in that colony, it ranks)  very high amongst the dilferent sections of the general agricultural interest, and bids fair to become quite as  important:as it is at home. No mattct  what breeders of other varieties.of live  stock may say, there is no question that  thc key to successful farming is the  same abroad as at home, namely the  maintenance upon every holding of a'  flock of sheep, either breeding or otherwise, as the character of the holding  may determine. Thc profit and benefit  arising from sheep breeding and feeding is certainly larger and more general than from arry other variety of  live stock.���������-Farmer and Stockbreeder, London,  Eng.

Broody Hens.  Very soon broody hens will be getting rather ^plentiful in many yards,  and a few hints as to the best method  of dealing with them will no doubt  be acceptable. In the first place, it is  perfectly natural for the hens' of  incubating varieties to develop their  natural propensities during the warm  season whenever a batch of eggs is  laid. This propensity may be .-cry  persistent or the reverse, according* 10  the race to which the fowls belong;  Cochins, Brahmas, Indian Game,  Malays, Langshans, and their crosses  or descendants, such as the Buff Orpingtons, Buff Rocks, Buff Wyandottes, etc., are very keen and frequent sitters during warm weathjr,  and it takes more to break them off  the fit than birds with a milder tendency to incubate. Birds which have  got rather fat and heavy are also  *rather*-dfffiett!t-ito*-break^onV=ar.d-"it-***Js=  a rule with those who keep incubating  varieties to keep them* only in fair  bodily condition during warm weather. They will lay all the better in  consequence. Whenever a hen becomes broody she should be kept  away from the nest or roosting house,  and for preference put in a coop with  a square bottom in the middle of the  yard. The spars should be at least  two inches from the ground, and  about two .and one-quarter inches  between the" spars, when a hen is  placed inside she docs not feci in a  comfortable posi'ion. Her overpowering tendency is to sit, and to sit soft,  ,jj.'hilc she is forced to stand, aqd to  ���������Csi^tid upon  a hard  and  uncomforta  Age  of Japanese "vVomen,  The objection made hy women to letting  their age be known Is not approved by  the ladies of Japan, who actually display  their cycle of years by the way-in which  they arrange their hn.lr.

She quickly tires of it,  aird in her continued anxiety to secure  more comfort outside the broody desire is forgotten. One feverish desire  conquers another. This proceeding is  nol in the least degree cruel, and the  bird quickly returns to laying again.  During the period of confincm*mt  food should be supplied sparingly, and  of a kind which does not heat cr  stimulate. Broody hens drink a lot of  water, owing to their feverish condition, and a little Epsom salts put ,'n  the drinking water daily greatly helps  to cool them down and break up the  broody fit. A plentiful supply of  green food should be given. It  should be chopped up finely, .ind placed in a vessel at thc side of thc coop.

So   it  may be (writes ray Indian correspondent;  an appropriate moment to recall the romantic   history   of   the   Doni   Pedro   diamond,  about which  there was so  much  excitement a few years ago.    When the  unfortunate Emperor Dom Pedro was deported   from   Brazil   his   great   diamond  soon came into the private market.    An  attemptwas made to soil it to the King  ���������then Prince of .Wales���������who did not like  to have anything to do with the painful  business.    Then attention was turned to  India,   where   the   well-known   financier,  Mr.  Jacobs   of Simla and Calcutta (the  original  by   the   way,   of  Marion   Crawford's "Mr. Isaacs"), took the matter in  hand.    Eventually  Jacobs   arranged   the  sale of the stone to the Nizam of Hyderabad   for   forty-six   lakhs, -which   if   the  rupee were at its nominal value,  represents a sum of ������4C0,CO0.    The  Ni?.am  deposited twenty-three lakhs with the bank  which   held   possession   of   the   diamond,  the   deal* having   been   carried   but   by  means of a glass replica and the expert  description   given   by   Mr.   Jacobs.     But  there's many a slip between a deal and a  diamond, and one happened here, the interruption   coming   from   a   slip   of   an  Irish boy.

It is the business  of the British Resident in a Native State  to   advise���������and    tacitly    to    control���������the  chief of the State; and Sir Dennis went  to  the Nizam, asked  him  if he realized  that there would probably, on tlie general prospects,  be a famine in  Hyderabad  the   following   season,   and   if   he   could  imagine what his starving subjects would  do    to   him   If   thej'   knew   he   had Just  ^quandered__for^*^ixM_]akhSi.on_ another  diamond for his turban.

Shuddering at the  thought   of   scimitars   at   his   throat   or  hand-bombs   flung   up   into   his   howdah,  tha alarmed  Nizam   sent  off   at once  to  Jacobs to quash  the bargain.    Quite naturally the  latter refused   to be  cist off  thus   peremptorily,    but   Irr   a   few   days  afterwards  he  took  steamer away  from  Calcutta.    This  raised  an  alarm,   on  account}- of the twenty-three lakhs deposited,   and   Jacobs  was  arreted  before  (he  vessel   got  clear  of  ih<-   Ifoo^hly.    After  a long trial.

Dreams and Their I.-Ieanings.  Do you believe ln dreams and ghosts?  Or are you one of those who airily sweep  away all arguments to the effect that  ghosts aro, and that they walk forth at  the uncanny hour of midnight, and that  dreams come true by declaring-that persons who relate hair-raising stories of  weird spirits and uncanny dreams are  the victims of hallucinations, asks a  writer ln Tha Chicago  Tribune T  Thla la no argument at all with Mr.  Andrew Lang, who ls ono of tho most  Interesting of all the authors that have  written on the subject of ghosts. Mr.  Lang cheerfully admits that ovory ghost  Is an hallucination, but thnt tho hallucination ls a perception, to quote Prof.  James : "As good nnd iruo a sensation  ns If there wore a real object there."  The object happens not to bo there.  That Is all.  As to telepathy, under which heading  might bo classed both ghosts nnd  dreams, Mr. Lang says :���������"I do believe,  with all studcrrls of human nature, In  hallucinations of one, of several, or ot  all the senses. But as to whether such  hallucinations, among the snno, aro over  caused by psychical Influences from tho  minds of others, nllvc or dead, not communicated through tlio ordinary channels of sense, my mind Is In a balance  of doubt. It is a question ot evidence."  Mr. Lang, in his latest book, "Dreams  and Ghosrs," has brought together a  great many stories as evidence In this  matter. As to whether the evidence ho  submits is convincing or not depends entirely upon the individual readers. Mr.  Lang himself does not declaro whether  he regards these stories as proof positive  or not. He does not constitute himself  as judge or jury. He is merely the attorney who submits liis case on Its merits. He takes tho position of one who  says :���������  "It may be true and lt may not be.  . I tell the tale as 'twas told to me."  Among other dream stories he tells is  the one about the dream vision of Prof.  H. "V. Hilprecht, who has the chair of  Assyrlology at the University of Pennsylvania. The University had despatched  an expedition to explore the ruins of  Babylon, and sketches of the objects discovered had been sent home. Among  these were drawings ot two small fragments of agate, inscribed with characters. Ono Saturday night irr March,  18D3, Prof. Hilprecht had wearied himself with puzzling over those two fragments, which wore supposed to lie broken  pieces of finger rings, lie was Inclined  from the nature of tlie characters to date  them about 1700-1H0 B. ��������� C; and as (ho  first character of the third line of the  first fragment seemed to read KU, ho  guessed that it might stand for Kurl-  galzu, a king of that name.  About midnight the professor, after  long and" vain work over the inscription,  went perplexed and weary of miivl. and  body to bed. Then he tells of tire following strange dream:  "A tall, thin'priest, of the old pre-  Christian Nippur, about forty years of  ago, clad in a sirnplo abba, led me to tlie  treasure chamber of the temple, on its  southeast side. He went with me Into a  small, low-ceiled room* without windows,  in which there was a large wooden chest,  while scraps of agate and lapis lazuli  lay scattered on the floor. Here he  addressed me as follows:  " 'The two fragments, which you have  published separately* upon pages !!!! and  26, belong together. They are not linger  rings, and their history Is as follows:  " 'King Kurlgalzu (about ISM U. C.)  once sent to the temple of Bel. among  other articles of agate and lapis lazuli,  an inscribed votive cylinder of agate.  Then the priest suddenly ������������������; received the  command-to make for tiie statue of the  god Nlbib a pair* of earrings of agate.  We were in' great dismay, since there  was no agate as raw material at hand.  In order to execute, tho command, there  was nothing for us to do* but cut'the  votivo cylinder in three parts.'thus making threo rings, each of whicli contained  a portion of the original inscription. The  first two rings served as earrings for the  statue of the god; the two fragments  which have given you so much trouble  are. parts of ;them. If yoii* will-put. tho  two together yoii will have' conllrmation  of my .words. But the third ring, you  havo not found yet,' and you never will  find it.' ���������'  Tho professor awoke, bounded out of  bed, as Mrs. Hilprecht testifies, and was  heard crying from his study, "It is so.  It is so!"  The professor verified  his  dream   next  day.   The Inscription ran thus, the missing fragment being restored, "by analogy  from many similar inscriptions:"  To the sod Nlbib, child  Of the god Bel,  His Lord  Kurlgalzu,  Pontlfex ot the god Bel  Has,presented It.  But In the drawings the fragments  were of different colors, so that a student working on the drawings would not  guess them to be parts of one cylinder.  Prof. Hilprecht, however, examined tho  two actual fragments in the Imperial  museum at Constantinople. Thoy lay in  two distinct cases, but when put together fitted. When cut asunder of old,,* in  Babylon, the white vein of tha stone  showed on one fragment, the gray surface on the other.  Prof. Romaino Newbold, who publishes  this dream, explains that the professor  had unconsciously reasoned out his facts,  the difference of color in the two pieces  of agate disappearing in the dream. The  professor had heard from Dr. Peters of  the expedition that a room had been discovered with fragments of a wooden box  and chips of agate and lapis lazuli. The  Bleeping mind "combined its information,"  reasoned rightly from it, and threw lt,  own conclusions Into a dramatic form,  receiving the information from the lips  of a priest of Nippur.

"Well, as we shall be wanting to hear  the lad speak at the inquest again, we  might as well know where you're going  to, and why you were goiirg away at  night," said the policeman.

On reaching Mrs. Raggett's cottage,  however, the first person whom the official saw was Dr. Wharles himself, who  was standing by the bedside talking to  Mrs. Raggett.  The doctor appeared to he delighted to  lee him. " .  "Ah!" he.said, "we've got a caso for  rou here, I'm afraid."  .."Indeed, doctor?" -  "Yes.'Here's a sick lad been sent out of  his mind by the injudicious treatment  of a lady whose zeal outran her discretion."  "You mean Lady Darwen? It is on  ier information I have come."  "I thought so. She plied him with  rruestioiis and her own fancies last night  till she had the lad in raving delirium,  and then turned me out of the house  when I came to see if I could do anything for the poor lad."  "Well, ladies are hasty, aren't ihey,  ioctor?"  "Yes, but there ought to be limits to  their hastiness* when human life is at  itake," said Dr. AYharle3 sonorously.  "I quite agree with you.

Io everybody's amazement, the lad,  who had been lying with his eyes closed,  io all appearance fast asleep, said sud-  ienly:  "That's a lie. She wasn't wi' me for  more'n a few minutes."  The doctor looked rather startled;  Nance Raggett turned white. The superintendent walked to the bedside.  "So you can hear what one says, and  understand, eh, my lad?" said-he.  Before Ned could answer,  the doctor  "lnterposed_sharpIy:  "I must forbid you to put any questions to Wm at present. He is in my  tare, and I couldn't answer for the con-  lequences if he were to be subjected, to  Ui interrogatory now."  The doctor and the policeman looked  taoh other full in the face, and the latter had to give way.  "Right you are, doctor. Then you an-  iwer for his safe-keeping till he i*> well  trough to be examined?"   : '. '.  "I do," said Dr. Wharles firmly.  CHAPTER XXHI.  For the .next few days Dr. Wharles  irove up regularly in the morning and  Main* in the afternoon to Raggett's cottage, and Norma heard from Mrs. Giles  that his reports upon Ned's condition  Were in every way satisfactory. The  lad was going on so well, indeed, that  bhe doetor declarer' lie would very shortly be well enough to be re-exam, id by  the police. And the doctor took p rticu-  lar care to call every day upon me superintendent to report progress.  Perhaps that official was not wholly  at -the'mercy of the medical man for the  information he received about the Raggetts and their doings. At any rate,  when Nance Raggett started for a trip  to' the seaside, and took tire precaution  to go at night, taking Ned with her,  the was met before she reached the Tail-  way station by a policeman, who courteously suggested that sire should accompany hirrr to the superintendent's office to answer a few questions, befoio  proceeding on her journey.  Ned, who looked very white, and indeed wholly unfit to take a journey, began to shiver violently.  ���������TJoan't you be afeard; boy; no harm  will happen to you," said he. "You'vo  only got .to speak out, and tell the  truth, and you'll bo protected, never  fear."  They wero walking back in the direction of the police station, but it was  clear fjcgm tlu*_J[uE,Uvo glances. N������(j_caat  lt was a piece of advice which she had  no elio. c but to take. But it was with  pale faces and downcast mien that the  two went back to the cottage in the  lane.  On the following morning, instead of  the doctor's calling on the Raggetts, it  was Nance who called upon tlie doctor.  And instead of Mrs. Raggett's taking  a holiday with her stepson, jr. was the  doctor who packed hrs portmanteau,  and, with his wife, went away, in a day  or two, rather unexpectedly, for a week  in London.   *  There was some talk among the neighbors about this sudden holiday, taken'  without much notice upo* Lhe plea of  Mrs. Wharles' need of chi(..j-t*. And rumors got about,, which culminated in a  general wonder whether the doctor would  be back in time for the* adjourned inquest on the body of, Tom Rogerson.  When the great day came, the' court  was, if possible, more densely packed  than ever. People.of note in the county  were accommodated with seats in that  part of the court usually reserved for  the jury and witnesses and others directly concerned in the case: Every eye  was bright with excitement; every ear  was strained for hen-, ing what new evidence the police might have to bring to  light.  j There were certain fresh witnesses to  be heard first.  There wag a j -*g woman, to state  that she saw two i"err go over the fields  on tire night of the murder, in the direction of thc plantation at Darwen Haigh:  the foremost of them she knew by his  slight limp to be Sir Astley Darwen, but  of'the identity of the one who followed  she professed not to be sure.  On account of tire way in which Sir  Astley's name had been dragged into tho  case, -ilr. Capper eppeared in court on  the young baronets behalf, arrd put a  few questions to some of the witnesses.  "Where were you when you 3aw these  two rrren going across the fields?"  "I were goin' home across t' fields', by  t' track ns goes reght across t' footpath  from Blackdale."  "And how far were you from the  men?"  ���������'About as fur as from one end of thia  court to t' other."  "I see. And there was still enough  light left for you to recognize Sir Astley?"  ���������'Ay. He has a little limplike in his  walk.   I'm main sure it wn.*> him."  "And   ;re second man ?   Was lie far be-  oind?   How far would you say?"  ���������"II���������was- nigh- as-fur -from-Sir-Astley-  is I was mysen from Sir> Astley when I  first r.ee him."  "Very good. And nfter seeing Sir Astley, you had heen walking on all the  tim-V You hadn't stopped?"  "Nay, I hadn't stopped."  "Then you must have been considerably nearer to the second man than you  had been to the first, to Sir Astley?"*  There .was a  slight  sensation   in  the  :ourt.     The witness, a respectable-looking young woman, with  the clear, hard  ?ray eyes of the typical Northerner, grew  nervous, ^apparently  for  the  first  time,  and looked.down.  "You \yere nearer, were you not?"  "Ay, I suppose I must ha' been."  "Yet you recognized  Sir Astley,  but  were cot sure about the sectmA." man:"  ".*- i* Astley has a limp.", *  ��������� "Yes. Was there no distinguishing  mark about the second man? Describe  him if you can."  "He were a tall man and muffled up.'*  -������3o nrurtled up that you could not seo  hit face?" ���������**'..���������  "Not well."  pid you take him to be a stranger?"  Long pause. Then the witness answered in a low voice: "No."  "You thought he was someone you'd  seen before?"  "I couldn't reghtly be sure."  "Come, who did you think it was?"  "I might ha'' been mistaken., THrc  was a hedge between him an    me."  "But a hedge is not very th.ck at this  time of year, not high enough, either, to  conceal the whole of the face and figure  of a tnll man."  By this time the girl's evident reluctance to tell thc whole truth had roused  curiosity and interest to the very highest point. People craned their necks to  see, to hear.  "I doan't reghtly know who it was,'*  she snid at 1** *,., almost below her breath  "Was it Coin Rogerson, the man who  was murdered later that night?''  The answer einue sharp and clear and  rjrompt:  "Nay, I know it were rrot hiin."  "Come, you eanie here, I'm 'ire, like  an honest, good girl, prepared to tell the  whole truth."  "But th.-y didn't tell me as how 1  should hnve to name him."  The impression these few hurried  -words produced upon the court may b������  imagined. A sort of sigh went round  followed by a deep, "Sh���������sh," and thf  ushers cried "Silence!" when all were already as silent as the dead.  "Ah, but the whole truth must come,'  said the lawyer, impressively. "And remember, it can harm no one but thc  guilty."  "It woan't prove him guilty, if I saj  I saw him?" asked tire girl quickly. "1  didn't see him do no harm, lie was only  crossing the fields like any. other man  might -aa' done."  "Who was?"  "Why, Dr. Wharles."  Again there was a sibilant sound, like  the sudden rush of an incoming -ide, and  then again dead silence while the lawyei  spoke.  He was very gentle, having to considei  the overwrought feelings of the witness  whose voice was now tremulous and  much fainter than before. She could nol  'but be conscious of the tremendous effect her evidence had already had.  "You are sure the second man, who  was following Sir Astley, was Dr  Wharlesf  The girl hesitated a moment, thee sh������  said quickly:  "I was sure at t" time: but when 1  .heard as how they'd gone and fetched  Dr. Wharles away out of his house, later, for to see t' body, why I thowt 1  .must ha' been mistaken. For how should  they ha' had to fetch him if he was a'-  ready there? And how could he ha' got  back so quick?"  There came a sort of surging rush ol  subdued voices, whispering, exclaiming.  "Silence!" roared  the ushers again.  ��������� With a kind word and an encouraging  gesture, Mr. Capper gave the witnesi  leave to retire, and she retreated, sob  bing, into an adjoining room, while thi  witness, Ned Raggett, who had been kepi  out of tihe court, was at length called,  and, amid a scene of indescribable, sub  dued excitement, was brought in.  The lad was horribly pale, and had t������  be accommodated with a ohair. His drj  lips were parted: his eyes were glass?  and heavy; his whole appearance wa/  tha/t of a person suffering not only frorr  physical ill-health, but from some acut<  mental torture.  The coroner was very gentle and kind  with him.  "Now, my boy," said he, "we're not going to bother you with many questions  because we all know you've been ill*, and1  are not over-strong yet. Answer openly  truthfully, and don't be frightened. Nc  harm shall come to you for speaking tha  truth, and there's not a creature in the  neighborhood that wishes you arij tiring  but good."  A sort of encouraging murmur of pity  and good-will seemed to be felt rathei  than heard." Enough -had leaked ' out  about the Raggetts and their affairs for  a general feeling of compassion to have  been engendered towards this lad, on  whose evidence so much depended.  "When you were last in this court,  before your illness, on the opening of .the  inquest, you were in fear of someone,  were you not?*'  .Tlie boy tried to answer, but his  tongue was dry. He bowed hi3 head, and  it was only after a moment's pause that  ���������he was able to whisper:  "Ay."  "You had been threatened, had vou  not?"  * Ned stared round him with a sudden  shock of alarm. The coroner spoke more  encouragingly than before.  "Now take my word for it, there is  nobody here who could or would possibly do you or wish you any harm. Speak  out without fear. You arc now re .dy to  tell irs what really happened on the night  of the murder, are you not?"  "Ay," again blurted out the boy in a  strangled   voice.  "You got up in a tree because you saw-  Sir Astley coming, and you didn't wish  to be caught trespassing" You lrave already told us tbat, arrd it is true, is it  not?"  "Ay, sir,  that were  true."  "Well,   and   after   that?     What   happened after that?"  A long pause. Then the ind, seemed to  pull himself together, and in n hoarse  voice, plucking meanwhile nervously at  his cap, lie said:  "I waited lill t* Squire were gone, and  it was a long time, for he went slow-  like. And 1 was going for to coom down,  when I see another man a-eoomrng oop  quick-like, as if for to follow t' squire.  And���������and then, while I was a-wondering  who he was, and why he wns so quick*,  1 see sorrreone a-eooming oop from t'lnne,  not cooming quick, like t' other, birt.  "creeping like "and "slow. And nt first I  didn't know who hc wns. no more'n  t'other. But when I' first heard him, Ire  turned from following t' Squire, and lie  looks round, and Ire says, says Ire: 'Who's  there?' says he. And���������and then, when he  sees who t'was, he cries oot, and savs,  says he: 'Why, doctor,' says he, 'is tliat  yo?'"  There was a pause, and once more that  strange, hushed, subdued movement ran  round the crowded court.  "Well, go on, my lad."  "And I looked down, and I see���������-I  see���������" A shudder convulsed him, and  he paused before going on: "I ece t' man  as was creeping -' -rg rise oop quite sudden, and hold *- .- Iris hand. And I sec a.  flash, and I heard a bang. And there  was  another  flash,   and   another   ban?.  and t' fiiat-i.-.c.T "������=r g*.--ve eve err, not si*  very loud, it wasn't, but he fell down  and he moved*a bit and he give a sort  of kick, and I knew he was shot dead."  "Well, go on."  "I must ha' moved, or cried out, for  tf man as had shot t' other looked oop,  and I see his face."  "Well?".  "It was Dr. Wliarles."  There was a sound like the surging of  the sea, a suppressed rorrent of speech  and movement.   Then the coroner said:  "Go on."  "Afore he could speak to roe, we heard  someone cooming,-.id hc ran away quick  towards the lane. And then my Lady  Darwen she,coom oop, and I didn't dare  tell her what I'd seen. 1���������-I was aieard  of what he might do to me."  "You saw him later?"  "Av. And he towd me not to let on  I'd seen owt, for if I did, 1 should very  like be had oop for a���������a���������cess'ry���������"  "An accessory after the fact?"  "Ay, 'twas summat like that. And he  towd"me it'd be seven years in prison for  me and worse for him. So I didn't dare  speak, sir, and I didn't, not till I was  took ill and talked in my dreaming."  Tiro story was told. There was minor  evidence to be taken, but all the in. ;.rest  of the exciting day had culminated in  . Ned's confession.  The excitement in Blackdale was tremendous: nothing was talked of but the  murder and the strange turn given to  the mystery by the fresh evidence. And  when it leaked out that the doctor had  sold his house and furniture, wholesale,  to a dealer in London, even his warmest  supporters began to grow faint; and the  warrant for his arrest, which was immediately issued," took no ono by surprise.  In the meantime the Wyersdale peo-  Sle had overwhelmed both Astley and  forma witli their congratulations, while  at the same time tliey were full of hardly repressed curiosity as to the reason  of the tragedy, llrat it was in some  way connected with tire unhappy circumstances of Astley's marriage they  knew, 'but that was nearly ul).  Norma could tell them little; but she  wrote a note to Mr. Capper, before he  left The Haigh, containing n suggestion  which she begged that he would make to  Astley.  It was that, since he had made up his  mind to leave the neighborhood altogether, and since she herself was goiirg  away, too, he should muke the continuance of his allowance to hid wife conditional on her coming to live at The  Haigh.  Astley thought the suggestion a  strange one, but Mr. Cupper approved of  it.  "Lady Darwen is quite right," said he.  "It will clear away any mystery about  the first wife once for all. It will ensure her behaving properly, and prevent  any repetition of the tricks she has already played upon you."  So the solicitor wrote to Lottie informing her of Sir Astley's decision. The  answer came from Mrs. Midsomer, who  said her daughter was not well enough  to move at present.  This answer roused Mr. Capper's ready'  suspicions, and he replied that, unless  Mrs. Midsomer and her two daughters  could find it convenient to fulfil his expressed wish without further delay, he  was instructed to inform them that the  allowance would be cut off at once.  To this second letter there came a  submissive answer. If it cost her daughter her life, Mrs. Midsomer wrote, she  would bring her to The Haigh on one  condition, that the lady who was using  the title of Lady Darwen should have  left the town.  To this Mr. Capper, without consulting Norma, at once agreed. But, with  the suspicion hc was nut unjustified in  feeling, he called upon Norma immediately after this, and suggested that, on the  day of the arrival ol the ladies, if the  meeting would not be too painful to her,  she would do well tu call at The Haigh  on some excuse of fetching something  that belonged to her, and to have one  more conversation with Lottie.  "You say she seemed rather contrite  about having placed you in a false position," said Mr. Capper. "Perhaps, if she  sees you unexpectedly, and understands  that you are not vindictive, she may be  inclined to muke a confession which  would free Sir Astley, rather than remain  in the practical confinement of The  Haigh, where she is not likely to make  many friends, or to have a very lively  time."  Though rather reluctantly, . Norma  agreed to this; and 'when, a week later,  Mr. Capper came to her lodging to take  her to The Haigh, on the arrival of the  Leamington party to take up their residence, she was dressed and waiting for  him.  "I've got a di*"ipoirrtrnent for you,"  he said. "At the last moment, this  precious Lottie had to be left behind.  Tliey say she was loo ill lo travel, but I  expect she took fright, and refused to  come. But they've given their word, the  mother and sister, that she shall come  next week; and I've told them that, if  she doesn't, Sir Astley will certainly carry out his threat."  "Then I needn't go to the house,'*' said  Norma with an air of relief.  "I should, if I ��������� were you. This Mrs.  Finch is not sueh a bad sort of woman;  she's the best of the bunch, at.aiiy rale.  And you may as well see the mother,  who is an artful, intriguing woman,  much of the same tvpe as Lottie herself."  "Where is Astley?*' asked Nornra tremulously, as she began to walk quickly  in the direction of The Haigh with her  companion.  ���������'i don't krrow. lie's about here slil),  somewhere or other, 1 fancy. Perhaps at  the Hall," said the solicitor.  Norma felt a pa"g of the jealousy she  could not repress at, any mention of the  Hall, where the beautiful Lady Myfanwy  lived.  She said nothing, however, and Mr.  Capper tried to keep up her spirits by  chat on indifferent matters until thoy  came to the portico.  The butler informed them that the  ludics were in tire drawing-room.  lt was a bright, spring-like day, and  'the-wide~lrall-look"od~a-liltle_les3~glooirfy"  than usual us Norma and Jlr. Capper  crossed it together.  When   the    drawing-room    door  was  thrown oneri, the sun was strcuming in  brightly,  imparting  a   transient  brightness to thc faded glories of that melancholy state apartment.    By the fire sat  thc two women, quietly dressed in black.  Both turned their heads as the visitors  entered, and both started violently when  the butler announced: >.  "Lady* Darwcn and Mr. Capper."  Norma, citine timidly forward.   She had  not reached the. middle of the room when  she  stopped  short,  and   uttered  a  low  cry.  SCALDED TO DEATH,  Mr.  Wm. Steer of London the Victim.  Loudon, Ont, June 29. ��������� An engineer, Wililam Steer, was most  horribly scalded iu tlie engine-  room of the Power Equipment Company of this city, and died after more  than three hours of awful agony. He  was formerly an engineer on the Grand  Trunk, but ior some time had been  night engineer at this establishment.  One of his regular duties had been to  strip tlie boiler���������that is, let tlie hot  water out, the steam escape, and then  take off the cover of thc manhol  Steer must have attempted to lake this  cover oft' before he had let the water  out or the steam pressure down. The  bolts of the manhole cover having been  loosened, the cover was blown off, and  Steer was caught in the rush of boiling water and escaping steam. liis  entire body was scalded in au indescribable mariner, lie did rrot lose consciousness, and was able to gei down  the ladder from thc top of the boiler.  There he might have lain uutil dealh  came had it not been for an astonishing call that was received at thc central fire staion. The building in which  Steer was dying is equipped with an  automatic tire alarm and spriuklei  system, which the intense heat of the  escaping steam set in motion. The  sprinkled water revived the injured  man, and the 'electric alarm' that  sounded in thc fire hall brought the  firemen to his aid. The accident occurred between 1 and 2 o'clock this morning, and Steer died at 5 o'clock.  A NEW TURBINE STEAMER.  Fast Time Made by the Queen Alexandra���������No Vibration.  London, June 29. ��������� There was  initiated in the English Channel thc  latest development of turbine ideas as  applied to marine architecture. The  new turbine steamer, the Queen, made  her final trip before being placed in  commission, and her builders, the inventor of the turbine engine and her  owners expressed themselves well satisfied with the result. The vessel  made the journey from Dover to Calais, twenty-five knots, in one hour and  ten minutes, the flood . being favorable. The return journey against the  flood and without any attempt to break  records occupied one hour and thirty  minutes. There was hardly any vibra-  tion, in fact thc deck felt as substantial  as a board walk on land. ��������� Those on  board predicted a turbine Atlantic liner within two or three years, and Hon.  A. C. Parsons, the inventor of the turbine marine engine, expressed the opinion that a full knot per hour could  be clipped ofF thc best transatlantic record by a turbine liner.  NO CHARACTER REQUIRED.

Rankin House Safe at Chatham Rifled  ���������Porter Missing.  Chatham, June 29.���������Some time between Saturday night and Sunday  something like a thousand dollars was  abstracted from the safe of the Rankin Hotel. When Mr. W. R. Peck,  the proprietor, retired ou Saturday  night, he, as usual, placed the collections of the day in thc safe, but neglected to' lock it. This morning the  porter, a man named Harry Hall, was  missing, and suspicion turns on him.  Hall's home is in Milton, and he was  once employed, at the Hub Hotel in  Toronto. The police at orrce wired to  outlying places, including Toronto, but  up to a late hour there is no intelligence of Hall.

River Bourgeois, Richmond Co., C.  13., June 22.���������(Special).���������One more remarkable cure has been credited to  Dodd's Kidney Pills in this neighbor-  howl, and the story is best told in the  words of Simon V.

In  fact I was a total wreck. I could not  work as I got tired and weak so  easy.  "I also had a weakness in my stomach, and it was so bad that I could  not bend down to anything. I tried  many medicines without getting any  relief till I was induced to trv Dodd's  Kidney Pills.  "After I had used three boxes e!  them I was able to start work again.

CITY LIBRARY.  .-   Now   that   a   good   start   lrns been  'made towards the foririntion of u (Jifcy  ' Library,   the   project  should   not   be  allowed   to   hang   fire. The    city  council hits  provided   a vory suitable  , building and citizens generally should  tsee to it that the   library   becomes an  accomplished fact before cold weather  - sets   in. Such   tin   institution     is  peculiarly neee**s,iry in   Kevelstoke as  there   are   a   lingo   number of young  men employed in the C. P.   \i.   shops,  the mills   and   other   places   who are  somewhat at <r, lo********   to   obtain amusements in the evening.     As to Uro steps  . to.be taken to bring  the mailer-   to   a  .focus,   we    would    -suggest   that  the  -Mayor call "'a" .public, meeting   at an  early   date   to   elect   Library     Corrr-  'liiissioiieiv*.      On  this board.the Indies  should    be   repiesented     us.    in   the  "arrangement,   of    local, festivities for  augmenting the funds,.llreir,assistance  ���������would be most raitiisile.  The rai-jon d'ette o ' a public library  ���������is, in the flrst place, educational. lt_  should   contain   a������ many     works   of j  reason of his announced retirement  is a natural reluctance to lose that  two hundred dollars which he would  unwillingly donate to the provincial  treasury if he attempted to oppose  Hon. Kiehard MoIsVide.  And where is .Toe? A few years  ago he was not only Joe but .To-.To, the  marr eating god, of the Grits. Now he  is fishing. At the coast the Liberals  are. having a most charming ..scrap  arid tire probable outcome will be the  "stormy petrel" coining out as a time  .worn "Independent", in opposition ..to  his erstwhile friends. Thai's all right,  too. Joseph Martin has shot his bolt,  antagonized, .friends arrd, opponents  alike and will be relegated to the  ranks'of the has beens when.'election  day conres round.  On the Island, as well, the '.Liberals  nre showing disintegration. In  L'squirmilt, Geo. R. Powell. ,1 brilliant  barrister- arrd orre of the rising sLars of  the '.Province, '.has been turned" down  for a week-kneed Dowieite ..named  Jar-dine, who has as much chance of  election as a snowball in hades. Another bull of Bnsh.-in. W. XV. B. Mclnnes, has been'compelled ' to. take to  the btnreyard of the Pacific for a constituency, mid, instead of hypnotising  the.miners in the vicinity of Nanaimo.  will shake his flowing locks to the.  mountains' and chasms of Alberni.  whose chief population', is the  ghosts  on men Inking the place   of  strikers.  reference a.-** po*-sil)le. technical text j of ship-wrecked'mariners who found  'book*-, standard works on sociology Davy Jones'locker on tliat bleak iind  arid political economy, and place with- j desolate shore/  in the reach of all the best thoughts j. Not only irr the districts mentioned,  of the world on matters whicli are jj |,ut in many others, the Liberals 'are  somewhat outside the purview of j crying "Peceavi". We have no need  L-phi-ruial literatuie.     There should bej to'refer to their Kilkenny attitude irr  history and   biography,   both   important!!! their place,   and,   irr   fact, the |  City Library  should 'primarily'  exist  for   the   purpose   of   making    better  citizens  of   those   who   patronize   it.  Revelstoke. These statements of  fact, and they cannot, bedisputed,bring  the inevitable conclusion that the  present Government .will be sustained.  Tlie success of   the   Conservatives   in  Aud thi- work can be carried on in no j Manitoba will be duplicated here.   Th*  better way than by following somewhat the course above indicated. The  fad for obtaining the literary sensation  of the hour, particularly in fiction,  should be entirely tabooed. Nothing  should 1������ pel mi t ted on its shelves  that is not of   permanent   value.      In  -thisway-the institution���������wilLba-mada  a credit to the city. At an early.date  we will take an opportunity to discuss  the matter somewhat at length, but  suggest that the ii-on be struck while  it i.s hot and organization, at all  events, lx* proceeded with at once.  SPA VINED.  -   The   "war horses"    of   the   Literal  Jiarty are In-corning;spavined, sufferer**  from spring halt or any other disease  that offers an excuse for their retiring  irom the race.      John   C.   Brown declined,   with   rhnnk.s.   the unanimous  ���������nomination offered him in New Wist-  "minster, of which city he   has* beerr a  resident for   thirty   years and mayor  "three or four times.      Of course, he is  too well known there so has   decided  to make   ,1   dying effort in Richmond  where he has,  perhaps,   not   been   so  . much in   evidence.      But   F.   Carter-  .Cotton will teat him with ease, as the  -, farmer's from Moodyville to .Steveston  .have     largely     been      residents      in  the vicinity for many year's and know  "Winchester.".  Jn Dciwdney, too. there is a little  jnan called Pater-son. He manages a  ���������saw mill at Port Moody and i.s there-;  foi*e well acquainted with the result  of getting up against a buzzer. As!  early as April lie announced himself  as the Literal candidate," held meetings and sent spa.sms of hot air from  Moody to Agassiz. , But poor "'li.  Frank" lias now pressing business  engagements, Too pressing, in fact,  to permit bis opposing the Premier-.  JJut we venture to remark that the  party that stays with its .principles,  unaffected by those squalls which  sometimes stampede public, opinion.  must reap success in the long run and  the men who nailed their colours to  the mast iu IS70 iind have not changed  an iota since are the safe ones to trust.  Aliiybe-iorriiiiirii&s-wi'oiigj-but^alwiiys  honest, the Conservative party is still  doing business at the sarrre old staird.  It's slogan "The country foi- the  people, the trade for our citizens, protection to home industry" hns the  same force today that it had when the  rratiorral policy was first promulgated.  In'the restricted sphere of provincial  politics this ideirtical banner i.s unfurled and when the ballots are  counted it will te found that under  this orillairmre the great mass of  electors are urassed. The passing fads  of Socialism, Martinism. Kellie-Lib-  Labism and all of a similar nature will  go down to the oblivion to which  they belong aird British Columbia  obtain its political recrudescence  under' the aegis of Hon. Richard  McBride, his cabinet, and at least  thirty loyal supporters. Voters, dorr'f,  lose your- franchise. Each man is  only a unit lint, like the wands carried  by the Roman lietor.s. bound togetlrer  we can never be broken. And the  axe in the centre of that bundle, will  be used by the Conservative party to  decapitate nil grafters, dcspoiler*-1,  agitators nnd self seekers no matter  what political stripe thoy may earry  on their- bricks.  IIOW THEY   WORK.  Not content with creating disturbances in the trades imionsthe Socialists  countenance violence against those nol,  believing in their cult. The V.li.R.li.  a Socialist organi'/ation, countenances  this openly and irr a circular of May  1st, lwy, gloats over injuries inflicted [  This is an extract from the circular in  question, addressed to all members of  the brotherhood iii North. America;  "At Vancouver a number of scabs  seem to have meet with accidents in  some unaccountable manner. If tliey  receive them whilst at work tbey must  surely be very awkward*and'.unaccustomed* to* tiie work they are doing, for  tho men whose places tliey are attempting to fill were never seen with bond-  aged' heads or 'black eyes."  "We have as little respect for a scab  ns "anyone; but, cannot Iind words  suflrciently strong to deprecate literature of this description. Reporting  violence without aspersing it is a clear*  cut direction for' its continuance .and  the Socialists are responsible for the  U.B.R.IC, a socialistic organization.  And the friendliness (?) of this order-  to its fellow workers" is shown very  fully in Lire account of George Estes'  speech ata mass meeting irr Vancouver  during the strike. Air account prepared by CM.It. 15. ollicials has this  to say: " '  "There are orders and orders,   religions and religious, unions anil unions,  some so constituted that they  cannot  carry out the true laws   of   unionism.  "These orders were a cruse   to   railway employees,    because   they   were  under the contiiil   of   capital.      Class  orders and contracts make  men  scab;  oue cannot gut awny from that.     The  recent ruliirgof the Trades and Labour  Council hurt, he would soorrni- see men  scab without a contract than with one,  because with one it rrrade   the   action  .appear to be .premeditated.      Orre   is  simply forced into   it.   nnd   the   only  'solution was to get   out   of  such   an  order.'"  XVe cannot separate these brotherhoods from the balance of the Socialist  party/ In this riding nearly all the  supporters of Mr. Bennett's candidature are political unionists of the same-  kind. In the report of the recent  Labour Commission appears the  following words, which a it worthy of  attention by all true trades unionists.  "It is obvious from these fact* thaL  it is not beyond the bounds of pos-ibil-  ity that the legitimate desire of a body  of wnrkingiuen to establish a proper  rrniori maybe used aa a means to forward illegal and unworthy ends by  plausible leaders who are in the pay of  foreign capitalists, and Ihat a union  may lie pei'srradedjntoji strikejiy uri-  pr'irrfa'pR-riTneri iov~nit~ other purpose  thnn to cripple or destroy.a Canadian  industry for the benefit of its rivals.  ft was further shown that the Cuited  Brother-hood pursued just a.s reprehensible tactics n-s the company, inasmuch as private telegrams between  officials of the company were disclosed  to the union, arrangements made with  an employee of a foreign telegraph  company to reveal information, copie*.  of confidential documents abstracted,  waste jiiipel' baskets ransacked, airl  the house of the local superintendent'  watched, and all with the express  approval and encouragement of the  president of the lirolherhood."  Members of unions must remember  that their principles are directly  antagonistic to Socialism, that Socialists in the union will be as treacherous  as Urey were irr the employ of theC. P.  li., thatf.lrcy are encouraged to disclose  other' people's confidential business if  It furthers their aims and that they  stop at nothing l.o obtain political  power-. Referring to such despicable  actions President Estes wrote to F. .1.  Malton, Agent of the U.B.R.E., in  Vancouver, as early as Januai-y 2nd,  in the following words:  "I am proud to think that the union  i.s so well organized as to put us in a  position lo get such information, arrd  congratulate you on your promptitude  in giving rne the information."  Pride in double dealirrg, pride in  treachery, pride in betrayal of employers. These aro the tactics of the  Socialist society in question. Anil  they .are asking for the support of  (lcccnl., honest, respectable members  of lhe unions of their crafts. But they  will ask in vain.  Gold Rango Lodge, K. of P.  No. 26, Revelstoke, B.

Caisson disease, or compressed air  disease, Is a malady which is often  contracted by those who are engaged  In engineering work In positions where  they are subjected to great air pressure. Dr. Thomas Oliver has^ observed  several cases of this kind, and he-has  arrived at the conclusion that , the  symptoms are best explained hy the  theory that the malady ls due to increased solution by the blood of the  gases met wMth It In compressed air.  and the liberation of "these gases dur- j  ing decompression. The increased solution of the gases Is due. of course, to |  the greater pressure upon the person  of the caisson worker.

Letters have recently appeared ln  The London Lancet, ln reference to the  colors of newly born negro children.  Several medical men have given tbe  result of their experiments, and the  evidence shows that the children are  of the color of a light quadroon. It  is recorded. In a paper published in  The Journal of the Anthropological Institute, of the natives of the Wan I district of the Niger Coast Protectorate,  that when pure negroes are born they  are pink like young rats, but at the  end of three or four months they become black. From this it would seem  tnat atmospheric conditions seem to bn  necessary to produce the full black  colored negro.  The Park Department of Boston has  for a long time thought that parks  were something more than simply incisures where citizens and their children could walk dressed up in their best  and look at the grass and trees. Playgrounds have been provided in differ*  ent parts of'the city and in these the  children can play ln thc sand and make  mud pies to their hearts' content, while  older ones have outdoor gymnasiums  and ball grounds to attract them from  the sickening and vicious life of the  pavements.

Four submarine mines broke away  from Castle Island and floated on the  beach at Marine Park, at South Boston,  Mass. For a time it was thought they  were floating barrels, but when their  real nature was discovered they were  taken to a place where there would be  no danger of premature explosions. I(  appears that the mines had been anch.  ored in a little cove at the southerly  end of Castle Island. They were  placed there in order tbat they might  be exploded as soon as the weather permitted. The storm was sufficient, however, to sever the mooring lines which  held them together as a group, which  accounted for their going adrift.

During the middle of the day. when the  sun was shining brightly, the salt appeared to dry out and the wires could  be used to some extent.

He snatched up  fetters prepared for Jesus, and, try-  them on his own legs, proceeded to  I.jU8t them, so that when he should a-p-  lf them to Jesus,  tliey  could not be  Ldone.  [Then, suddenly, from the cross came  e  words, "Father,  forgive, them,  for  ley know not what tlrey do."  Then Jesus cried out, "It is finished,"  id gave up the ghost.  Beelzebub   understood   that   all   was  st.

J." He had hardly time to draw breath,  (when   from   an   opening   overhead  red  Karnes glared, and a crowd of devils bust-'  |ing each other, rushed through bhe hole  'ato the basement and seated themselves  (round Beelzebub like birds of prey round  Pcarrion.  f These devils were big and small, stout  and thin, with long and short tails, with  horns pointed straight and crooked.

HI.  "What does this noise signify!" said  I-Beelzebub, pointing upwards.     "What's  going on there?"   ���������    '  "Just the eame as lias always gone  on," answered- the shining devil in the  !.eape.=  '"'But are there    really    any sinners  J'liowt" asked Beelzebub.  "Many," answered the shining one.  .,    "But how -about the teaching of Him  ''whom I do not wish to name?" asked  Beelzebub.  The devil in the cape grinned, disclosing his aluurp. teeth, while suppressed  ' laughter was heard amongst all the devils.  "This teaching does not hinder us.  Men do.not believe in it," said the devil  .In the cape.   ���������  "But. this   teaching   obviously   saves  them, from us, and He.sealed it by His  -death,", said Beelzebub.  ��������� "I.hnve transformed it," said the de-  . Til in the cape, thumping his tail on the  |, floor.  "How have you transformed it?" .'."  ' "So that men do not believe in His  -teaching but in mine, which they call by.  His name."  "How didst thou do this?" asked Beel-  ���������aebub..* '.:.   ''������������������������������������������������������*���������" .  ,    "It was done of itself.   I only helped."  "Tell me about it quickly," said Beel-  ���������zebub. "  Tire devil in the cape 'bent down his  '. 'head and was silent a whilc.asif .leisure-,  i ly considering, then Ire said:  i "When that dreadful event happened,  i' that nell was overthrown, and-our father.  ���������' and ruler departed .frbni: us," aaid he, "J  ('������������������went to those places whore that very  '��������� teaching which Iind so nearly destroyed  i -*us was tnught. 1 '.wig-hod to sec how  I *hoae people lived who fulfilled it, and 1  ���������saw that the people who lived according  ; to this teaching were perfectly happy  I and quite out of our renoh.

Whea I saw this I thought that_ all was  iost, aad was just going to quit. _ But  Jhen occurred a circumstance, in itself  Insignificant, yet which appeared to me  to deserve attention, and I remained.  Amongst these people some regarded it  is necessary that all should undergo oir-  -umcision, and that none should eat meat  snored to idols; whereas others were of  ���������>pmion that these matters were not essential, and that one might abstain from  lircunicision jind oat anything. So I be*  jjaii to'Tristil Into all their minds that  this difference of opinion was very im*  ���������portant, and that aa tho question consented the service of God, neither side  :ou!d possibly give way. .Thoy believed  me, and the disputes 'became moro obdur-  ito. On both aides thoy began to be  mgry, ond then I proceeded to instil  into each of them that they might prove  tho truth of tlieir teaching by miracles.  Evident as it is that miracles cannot  prove the truth of ir teaching, yet tlrey  so desired to be In tiro right that they  believed nre, nnd 1 nrriingi'd miracles for  them. It was not dillicult to do this.  Tliey believed anything which supported  their desire to prove that tlrey oirlylreld  tho truth.  "Some said that tongues of fire descended upon them; others said that  tliey had seen the risen body of the "Master Himself, and much else. Tliey kept  inventing what had never taken place,  andjjicd in thejnme o������ Him who called  fis k'avk, worse than we doourselves���������and  did not know it. One party said of the  other: 'Your miracles are not genuine;  ours are genuine.' Whereupon the other  retorted: 'No, yours are a fraud; ourq  are real.' --*������������������  "Matters were going on well, but as I  was afraid tlrey might discern the too-  evident trick, I invented the 'Church.'  Onoe they believed in 'the Church,' I  was at peace. I recognized that we were  saved, and that Hell wiie restored."  IV.  "What is the 'Church?'" asked Beelzebub, severely, not wishing to believe that  'his servants were cleverer than, himself.  "Well, the Church is this: When-peoplo lie and feel they are not believed, tlrey  always say, referring to God: 'By God,  what I say is true!' This in substance is  the Church, only with this special feature, that those men who recognize  themselves as the Church become persuaded that they can no longc'rerr, and  therefore, whatever nonsense they may  say, they can never after recant it. The  Church is produced thus: Men assure  themselves and others tftutt their teacher, God, to save the law revealed by  Him to men from being misinterpreted,  has chosen special men who, with those  to whom they* transfer this power, can  alone correctly interpret His teaching.  Those men who call themselves tho  Church regard themselves as holding the  truth, not because what they preach is  truth, but because thoy regard themselves as the only true successors of tho  disciples of the disciples of the disciples,  and at last of the disciples of the teacher  Himself, God. Still, in this method thero  is also the same inconvenience as in the  miracles, namely, that many people can  assert, simultaneously, each one of himself, that he is a member of the only  true Ohureh (which, indeed, has always  been the case). But the advantage of  tins. method is, that as soon as men  claim for themselves that they are the  Church, and upon this assertion build  up their teaching, they can no longer renounce what they have once said, however absurd it may be/and whatever oth*  era may eay."  "But why has the Church misinter-,  pretcd the teaching iii bur favor?" said  Beelzebub.  "They did this," continued tiro devil in  the cape, "because having . recognized  themselves as the only expositors; of  God's law, and having persuaded others  of this, these men became the highest  arbiters of men's fate, and therefore  were entrusted with the highest power  over men. Having received this power  they naturally became; infatuated, and,  for the most pairt, depraved, thus exciting against themselves the anger and enmity of men. In order to overcome their  enemies they, Braving no other arms but  violence, began to persecute, to kill, to  burn all those who would not Tecognize  their power. Thus by their very position they were forced to misrepresent  the teaching so that it should justify  both their wicked lives and their cruelties to their enemies.  "And this they did." |      .  V. "  "But when* the teaching was so simple  and clear," said Beelzebub, still reluctant  to believe -that Iris servants had done  what he had failed to think of, "it was  impossible to misinterpret it. 'Do unto  others ^wbj*/*^^puylcsjresj^jthat jJthers  should do unto thee.'   How caJrTone^pds*-"  itamce, It is said in the Scriptures, 'Call  io man your Father on tire earth; for  >ne is your Father which is in Heaven.  Neither bo ye called masters; for one is  rour master, the Christ,' but they eay:  We alono nTe the fathers, and wc alone  iro the masters of men.' Or, again it is  laid: 'When thou wislrest to pray, do so  rn secret, and God will hear thee,' but  ihey teach that it is necessary to pray  *n churches, in a company, and to the ac-  ���������ompaniment of songs and music Fur*  ih-or it is said in tire Scriptures: 'Do not  ���������year at all,' but they teach that men  ihould swear implicit" obedience to tlie  uithorities whatever these may demand.  Or it is snid: 'Thou-shalt not kill,' but  ;hey teach that one can and should kill  Sn war and according to law. Or again  It is said: 'My teaching is spirit nnd life,  toed upon tt ns upon bread,' whereas  they tench that if one puts a few scraps  sf -bread into some wine and pronounces  ���������wrtnin words over these scraps, then the  :>r(*nd becomes flesh nnd tiro wirre blood,  irrd that to eat this brend and drink this  iviire is very profitable for tire salvation  af one's soul. People believe in this nnd  sanctimoniously eat this Rop, and then  when tlrey fall into our 'hands they nre  astonished that lire sop lias not helped  them," concluded tho devil in tire cape,  and turning up his eyeballs he grinned  from ear to car.  "This is very good," said Beelzebub,  and smiled, and all tire devils joined in  roars of laughter.  VI.  sibly'misinterpret this?"  "Well, by my advice, they used various methods for this purpose,' said tbe  devil in the cape. "Men have got a  story about a good magician who, to  save a man from a wicked magician,  turned him into a little grain of wheat,  Whereupon the bad magician, having  changed himself into a cock,, waa about  to peck this little grain, so tlie good ma-  flician emptied a sack of grain over the  little grain so that the '-bad magician  could not eat up nil the grains nor yet  find tbe one which he wanted.  "According to my advice they did thus  with the teaching of Him who taught  that all the law consists in doing unto  another that which we wish others to do  unto us. A3 a sacred exposition of the  law of God they accepted forty-nine  books> in which they asserted that every  word was the production of God, of the  Holy Ghost. Over the simple, easily understood truth they shook out such a  heap of self-styled sacred truths that  i it; became impossible either to accept  them all or to discover amongst them the  one which is alone necessary for men.  "This is their first method.    The second, which they, used  with success for  more than a thousand years, consisted in  simply killing and burning all those who  wished to reveal the truth.   This method  is becoming obsolete now, "but they have  not altogether rejected it, and although  tlrey no longer burn those who endeavor;]  to disclose the truth, still they so calum-j  niate theni and so poison their lives that'  only very few havo courage to convict  them of their deceptions.  "This is tire second method. Thc third  "ts that while asserting themselves as the  Infallible Ohureh, yet, when it suits  tlrem, tlrey simply tench the direct opposite from what is said in the Scriptures,  "Is It possible that it is as of old with  you; are there adulterers, plunderers,  miurdorers?" asked Beelzebub, now cheerfully. . V**'-.***:  The devils also became merry, and,  trying to show themselves off to Beelzebub, began to talk all ut once.  "Not as of old, but more than as of  old," shouted one.  "The adulterers have not sufficient  room in our sections," piped another.  "The present plunderers are more cruel  than the old ones," cried a third.  "We can't prepare sufficient fuel for  the murderers," roared a fourth.  "Do not speak all together," said Beelzebub, "let that one answer whom I will  question. Who manages adultery? Come  up and relate how thou dealest now  with the discipl������s of Him who forbade  men to change wives, and said that one  Should not look at a woman with lust.  Who.manages adultery?"  "I do;" answered an effeminate brown  devil with a flabby face and a restless,  slobbering mouth, as he crawled up to  Beelzebub on his haunches.  This devil crept out in front of the  others, crouched down on his heels, bent  his Dread on one side and wagging liis tas-  seled tail twisted ia between his feet,  began thus in a sing-song voice:  "We do this both according to the  old method used by thee, our father and  ruler, when yet in the garden of,Eden,  and whicli gave over all the human race  into our power, but we do it also in a  new ecclesiastical way. According to the  new ecclesiastical method we proceed  thus: We persuade men that true marriage consists nob in what it really consists, the union of man and woman, but  in dressing oneself up in one's best  clot-lies,. going into a big building, arranged for tire purpose, and there putting on one's head caps specially prepared for the occasion, walking round a  little table three times to the sound of  various songs." We teach men that thus  only is true marriage. Being persuaded of  this they naturally regard -all unions between man and woman formed outside  of these conditions ns mere frolics binding one to nothing, or as the satisfaction  of a hygienic neeessitj*, and therefore  they unrestrainedly give themselves up  to this pleasure." *  Tire effeminate devil bent 'bis flabby  face to, the ������the* side, and was silent,  awaiting Beelzebub's reception of his  words.  Beelzebub nodded his head in token oi  approval, and the effeminate devil continued.  "In this way, while: not abandoning  the former method of forbidden fruit  and inquisitiveness practised in Eden,"  ho continued, evidently wishing to" flatter  Beelzebub, "we attain the very best results, men imagining that they can arrange for themselves an honest ecclesiastical marriage even after their union  with 'many women; men change hundreds of wives and thus become so accustomed to vice that they go on doing  the same after the Church marriage. If  for any reason, any of the demands connected with their Church marriage appear to; them cumbersome, then tlrey arrange another walk round the little  table, whilst the first is regarded as of  no effect."  The effeminate devil ceased, and having wiped the drivel from his mouth with  the tip of bis tail lie bent his head on  ^the^othenside^and.silently^fixed.-his^eyes.  on Beelzebub.  lay pThTraor, witli impunity, the TuTroring  najority.

Thus, at one  time, in Bussia, I placed on the throne,  as an experiment, one after the other,  the most disreputable women.'stupid, illiterate and dissolute, and who, according to their own laws, bad no right to be  there, arid the last one���������not only dissolute, but a criminal, who murdered her  husband and her lawful heir. Yet men,  only because she had been rubbed with  oil, did not tear her nostrils, nor beat  her with a whip, as they were wont to  do with all those who murdered their  husbands; but during thirty years they  servilely submitted to 'her, allowing hor  and her innumerable lovers hot only to  plunder their property, but also to deprive them of their liberty. So, therefore, in our time, open plunders, i.e.,  the forcible appropriation of *a purse, a  horse, or of clothes, are only one-millionth part of the 'lawful' robberies  which are continually being enacted by  those who have the power. In our time  unpunishable and secret plunders, and  in general a -readiness to plunder, are to  such an extent, established amongst men  that in almost all mankind the chief object of life is plunder, moderated only  by tlie mutual strife between ���������lhe plunderers." i  VIII.  VII.  defend   themselves  against  at-' leaving It to their pupils to disentangle  tacks, but. repaid ovil by good. ihomsclvcs from these contradictions as  /'Thsir  life  was so good that many  -tji-y like .and ns they can.   Thus, for in-  "Simple and good," said Beelzebub; "I  approve.   Who manages tlie plunderers?"  "I do," answered, stepping forward, a  big devil with large crooked horns,  tumed-up mustaches, and enormous  crookedly planted paws.  This devil having crawled out like tho  others, arranged his mustaches in a  military fashion with both paws, and  waited to be questioned.  "He who destroyed Hell," said Beelzebub, "taught mankind to live like the  birds of Heaven, eomiuanding men to  give to him that a*ks and to surrender  one's coat, to him wiio wishes to take  one's shirt, saying that to be saved one  must give away one's property. How  then dc-st thou induce men who have  heard this to go orr plundering?"  ..���������'"Wa do tlris." said the mustaclrcd  devil haughtily, throwing back hU head,  "exactly as did our fit ther and 'ruler  when Saul was elected King. Even as  then," wc instil into men the idea that  instead of ceasing to plunder each other  it is -more convenient to allow one man  to plunder them all, giving liim full authority over all. What is new in orrr  methods is only this-*-���������that for confirming this one man's right of plundering  we lead him into a church, put a special  cap on hia head, seat him in an elevated  armchair, give him a little stick and a  ball, rub him with some oil, and in the  name of God and His Son proclaim the  person of this man. rubbed with oil, to  be sacred. Thus the plunder performed  by this personage, regarded as sacred,,  can in no way be restricted. So these,  sacred personages and their assistants,  and tlie assistirrts of their assistants, all  without ceasing, quietly and snfely plunder the people. Generally, laws and re-  s i filiations are instituted by which the  i-1 Idle minority,  even   without  anointing.  "Well, ^this is good," said Beelzebub;  "but murders?   Who manages murders?"  "I do," answered a devil of blood-red  color, coming out of the crowd, his tusks  sticking out from bis mouth, and with  sharp horns and an upturned; thick, stiff  tail.  "How dost thou cause murder amongst  the disciples of Him who said: 'Do not  render evil for evil, love your enemies?"  How dost thou make murderers of these  men?" said Beelzebub.  "We do this 'both in the old way," answered the red devil in a deafening, rattling voice, "*by exciting in men avarice,  anger, hatred, vengeance and pride. Also  by the old method, we persuade the  teachers of men that the best way to  keep men from doing murder consists in  the teachers themselves publicly murdering those who have murdered. This system does not so much furnish us witb  murderers as it educates them for us.  But a greater number bave been and are  given to us by, the now teaching of the  infallibility of tbe Ohureh, of Ohureh  marriage and equality.  "The teaching of the infallibility of  the Church used, in former times, to  give us the greatest number of murderers. Those who recognized themselves as  members of the infallible Church regarded-it as a crime to allow those whom,  they called false interpreters of the  teaching to deprave men, and therefore  looked upon the murder of such, interpreters as an action pleasing to God, and  they killed whole populations and executed and burnt hundreds of thousands  It is droll that those who executed and  burnt the ones who 'had begun to understand the'true teaching, regarded these  men���������for us most dangerous enemies���������  as our servants, i.e., the servants.of devils! Meanwhile, those who executed  and burnt others at the stake regarded  Jli^ii^ly(^asjawte_fjilfilling the will of  God, "wKile tSey^*rere"ih~i*ealityi6uf-obe-i  dient servants.  "So it was formerly. At present -a  very large number of murders is given  to us by the teaching of Church marriage and by that of equality. , The  teaching of marriage gives us, firstly, the  mutual murder of those married and the  murder of children by their mothers.  Husbands and wives kill each other  when certain demands of the law,and  customs of ecclesiastical marriage appear to them cumbersome. On the other  hand, many mothers kill their children  when Uie unions from whicli Obese children have proceeded are not recognized  as marriage. Suoh murders* are of constant occurrence.  "Again, though murders called forth  by tire Ohureh teaching of equality are  only committed periodically, yet when  they do take place ihey are in great  number. According to this teaching, it  is inculcated into people that they are  a31 equal before the law. But tibe'plunr  dered people feel that this is not true.  They see that this equality before bhe  law only makes it convenient for tbe  robbers to continue their plunder, while  for themselves it is made inconvenient  to rob, and tben they revolt at 'this, and  attack their plunderers; and then begin  mutual murders which sometimes give  us scores of thousands of murderers at a  time."  IX.  "But murders in war? How can the  disciples of Him who recognized men as  the song of one Father and enjoined tho  love of one's enemies, be enticed into'  war?"  The red devil grinned���������letting out of lf������r the science I lrave invented for them  his mouth a jet of lire and smokie���������and  joyously slapped his thick tail on hisjj  back.  'We manage ttius: We persirade each  "Woll, this is clever," said Beelzebub,  tfter a long puuse. "But how is it that  earned men, raised ivbprn such deceits,  lo not see tliat the Oliurcli bus distorted  .'ho teaching of Christ, and do not ucek  ro* reinstate it?"  "Well, they cannot do this," said a  lusky black devil in u mantle, with a  lat, receding forehead, feeble shoulders  ind large, protruding cars, and speaking  :n a self-assured voice, as ho crawled out  m front of tbe others.  "Why?" severely asked Beelzebub, dis-  sleased witli the self-assured tone of the  Itcvll in tbe mantle. f  Not disconcerted by tlie manner of the  shiof, tbe devil in the mantle leisurely  lat down, not on his heels like the  atbers, but in the Eastern way, crossing  his ���������weak legs, and, without hesitation,  In a low, unifwrra voice lie began to relate: . i<xi<^.^"&Z^,.x-a&*s'-xa**-  "JCljiey cannot do this because I contln-  aaily distract their attention from what  It is possible and necessary for them to  know, and direct it to what is not ne-  ���������essary for them to know, and which  they will never know."  "And bow dost-thou do this?"  "I have done this in the past and am  doing it at present in varied ways," answered the devil in the mantle. "In olden times I taught men that bhe most  important knowledge concerns the relations between the persons of the Trinity,  the origin of Jesus Christ, His natures,  the qualities of God and so' forth, and  they discussed mucJh and 'lengthily, arguing, quarreling, and getting angry. And  these discussions so airs-orbed them, tJlia-t  they did not think about how tbey  ihould live. Not thinking of how they  should live, tbey did not need to know  what their teacher told them about life.  "Then,_ when they 'bad become so entangled in these discussions tbat tbey  themselves ceased to understand what  they were talking about, I persuaded  them that the most important thing for  them is to study and explain everything  written by a man called Aristotle, who  lived a thousand. years ago in Greece;  others I persuaded, that the most important thing for them was to find a  stone by the maans of which tbey could  produce gold, and an elixir which could  heal all diseases and render men immortal. .And the most clever and learned  of them* thus directed all '.their mental  powers.  "Those who were not interested in  this, I persuaded that it is most im-  pi>rtant to know whether it is bhe earth  that (revolves round tbe sun, or the sun  a round the earth. And when they found  out that the earth revolves and not the  sun, and ascertained how many millions  of miles there are between tbe sun and  the earth, they were very glad, and  since then tbey are yet more earnestly  investigating the distances between tbe  stars, although they know tliat there  can be no end to the number of such  distances and tbat the number of stars  itself is infinite, and that there is no necessity at all for them to know this.  Besides this, I also persuaded them that  it is very necessary to know the .beginnings of all animals, worms, plants, and  infinitesimal creatures. And although to  know this is: likewise quite unnecessary  f.or them, and tliough it is quite clear  that it is impossible to know this because the number of creatures is as infinite as that of the stars, yet they direct all their mental powers to such investigations of material phenomena, and  ire greatly astonished that tbe more  tbey find out concern ing wliat' tohey bad  no necessity to know, llio more remains  unascertained 'by them. So though it is  obvious that in proportion as their in-  vestigaitiona proceed, the region: of that  which remains to be investigated becomes wider and wider, and the subjects  of investigation more and more complex,  and the very knowledge acquired by  them less and less adaptable to life, still  this does not in the least perplex tbem,  and being quite persuaded of the importance of tJieir occupations, they continue  to investigate, preach, write, print and  translate.all their enquiries arrd discussions, which are generally utterly un-  mvailablerand=if "o-censi 6 r^  then only for tbe pleasure of tire minority of the rich or for the. aggravation  of the position of the majority of the  poor.  "To binder (these men from ever again  guessing that the only thing necessary  foi- them is tbe establishment cf the laws  of life indicated in the teaching of Jesus  1' impress upon them tlrnt they cannot  know the law of spiritual life, and that  all religious teachings, including that of  Jesus, nre error and superstition, and  that they can better ascertain how they  ought to live from the science which 1  have devised for tlrcrrr, called sociology,  consisting in the study of bhe various  bad ways in which former people lived.  Thus, instead of trying to live better  themselves, according to the teaching of  Jesus, they think that they need only  study the life of. former peoples, irr order-  to deduot universal laws of life, so tliat  to live well tbey need only conform  their lives to the laws they choose to  invent.  "To confirm them still more_ in this  error, I suggest to tbem something similar to the Ohurolr teaching���������namely, that  there exists a certain succession of know-  .���������edge called science, and that' thc assertions of this science are as; infallible  as tire assertions of the Church.  "Then, as soon as those who are regarded as the promoters of science be-  ���������tomo persuaded of their infallibility,:  they naturally proclaim as indubitable  truth the most useless and often absurd  nonsense, which once having proclaimed  tbey cannot recant.  "Hence it is that ns long as I inculcate  into these men  respect and  veneration  Ptbey will never comprehend that teaching which all but destroyed us."  ebub, and Iris faco irftione.

"Thou," ho s.iid, adilre*****  ug tho devil of technical improvement.-,,  'what dost thou do?"  "I persuade men Hurt tlie more articles  Uiey produce, and the quicker they pro-  luce them, the better it will be for  iliem. And men, destroying their lives  ���������n the production of articles, keep prewiring greater and greater quantities  if them, notwithstanding that these articles aro unnecessary to those who compel their production, nnd are inaccessible  ;o those who produce them."  "Cood! Well, and thou?" said Beelzebub, turning to the devil of the division  ������f labor.  . "I persuade men that as articles can  ie produced better by machines than by  men, jt is therefore necessary to ��������� turn  Sien 'into mabblncs, and they do this,  ind the men turned into machines bate  those who bave done so unto them."  "And.this is good. And thou?" Beclzo  bub addressed tlie devil of the means of  sommunication. ���������-��������� '���������**���������������*������������������.���������.���������������������������������  "I persuade men that for their welfare it is necessary that tlrey should  travel from place to place as speedily as  possible, and thus, instead of improving  t'heir lives, each where he is, they pass it  for the most part.running from place to  place. They are very proud that they  can travel fifty miles and more in one  hour."  Beelzebub praised this one also.  Then came forward the devil of book-  printing. His business, as be explained,  3onsis(ted in communicating to the greatest possible numlber of men all the nasty  and silly things which are being done  ind written in the world.  The devil of art explained -tliat, under  pretext of comforting and exciting noble  feelings in men, be panders to their vices  by representing tlrem in an attractive  aspect.  The devil of medicine, explained tbat  liis business consisted in persuading men  that the most necessary tiring for tbem  is anxiety about their body; arid since  anxiety about one's body has no end,  those people who take care of their body  by the aid of medicine, not only forget  about the life of other men, but also  about their*: own.  The devil of culture explained that be  teaches tbat to profit by all those things  Which are managed by the devils of technical improvements, division of labor,  means of communication, book-printing,  art, medicine, is a kind of virtue in itself, and so tbe man who profits by all  this becomes quite self-satisfied, and does  not endeavor to improve.  The devil of education explained that  he persuades men to imagine that, whilst  living: badly, and not even knowing in  what right life consists, tbey .can still  teacb children the right way of Irving.  The devil of correction explained that  he fceacbes men tbat being themselves  perverse, they can yet convert perverse  people.  The devil of intoxication showed that  Ire teaches men that, instead of escaping  the (sufferings produced by bad life by  endeavoring to improve tlieir lives, they  had better forget themselves under the  influence,of intoxication from wine, opium, tobacco or morphia.  The devil of philanthropy said that by  persuading men thnt whilst plundering  by tons and returning to the plundered  by ounces tbey are charitable, and do  not need improvement, be renders them  inaccessible to good.  The devil of socialismvboasted that in  tho name of the very highest organization of human life, he excites the enmity  of classes.  The devil of worn *i's* rights boasted  that in the name of yet more perfect  organization of life he���������besides the enmity of clauses���������excites also enmity between the sexes.  "I tun comfort! I am fashionl"  screamed und piped more devils, crawling up to Beelzebub.  "Do you really imagine that I am so  old and stupid as not to understand thai  as soon aa i^eJ>eacbing^oLlifeJis^r*,r^������g*^-  nized as an error, then everything which  might be 'harmful to us becomes useful?"  ���������tried Beelzebub, with a loud peal of  laughter. "Enough! I thank you all,"  snd flapping bis wings be sprang to bis  feet.  The devils encircled Beelzebub. At on*  end was the devil in the cape���������the inventor of tire Church; at the other end  the devil in thc mantle���������thc inventor of  Science.

Right here let it. be stated that the  visitors from A'ernon cei-taiiily proved  themselves gentlemen in all senses of  the word. There were some slight  differences before the mutch but, Once  on the field, both teams were in it to  stay nnd practically lhe _garne=w/iS������  TrorVn rlTrTyifSn^'T^oi^  both teams got nasty Knocks hut rro  oni! had a Ht or- anything' else that  might suggest; playing for time or  wind. This is thrown out as a suggestion to a��������� senior ten in recently visiting  us.    The line up was.  :Hilliei\s*and Chambers. They played  the game of the team from then on.  Wo have nothing to say against the  balance of the boys'ont the want of  preparation was so apparent in many  cases that we trust lire old maxim  '���������experientia docet" will apply and get  tlie whole team orrt���������and why rrot two  ���������to practice as often as possible and.  when a probable invitation comes to  A'ernon Fair, which will be hejd Oct.  15th to 17th. the Bevelstoke Inlcrmcd-  iates .should win orr a walk. But.  standing round Irving to Iind out how  il. happened will have no effect.  The , lirst two ipinrli-rs made no  change iu the score. Beally the  visitors were heller than is shown on  paper and the saving ol* several other  marks is to be credited lo Bevelsloke's  home. .Mclntyie, in gnnl. and laler  changing places wilh 1 lurry Bews  worked well and maybe a little re-  iirrangeineiil. of lire learn would have  averted defeat. Still, the youngsleis  haven record irr the Province as even  the big bugs a I Ihe coast have not. held  the score down yet to a single goal for  an hour's hard work. Louis Gould, of  Vei'iiou, and captain of that team is  the only one necessary to mention  again where nil played *well. The  Vernon boys will be welcome visitors  here airy old time they like to conie.

Just say Bevelstoke and tliat describes it. The score was 20 l.o 1 the  singlet being the property of JStiderby.  The homo team, having Burirell as  pitcher- .and McLean, catcher, just  played rings round the. visitors. Thos.  Meiville' olTieiated as umpire arrd no  orre questioned his decisions. lie was  prompt,' capable and let everyone  know what, his conclusions were.  After Tuesday's game 'Revelstoke'can  consider itself the boss in baseball of  tlie* interior."
