Bradley���������Magnificent Showings.  Further evidence was recently discovered of the continuity of the Lardeau free gold belt at least as far north  as Ground Hog Basin. The lucky locator was J. O, Bradley who has named  the big lead discovered by him the  "Eureka. It"is~rt~inassive-white=qiiartz,-  heavily iron-stnined, and lias'a minimum width of eight feet. The uiaiu  lead runs north and soutii and has  been traced across five claims, a total  length of 7500 feet. The claims were  staked by Mr. Bradley and ' associates.  The property is located on the west  side of McCullough criek going up  between Gold stream and Ground Hog  Basin, the exact point being quarter  of a mile north west of the Last  Chance cabin.  The country rock is the well known  hydro-mica slate which,, in the stringers included in thc quartz, also carries  free go*1-** Specimens from the Eureka  shown to the Herald have large  quantities of pin head gold visible to the  naked eye and the appearance of the  quartz is* exactly similar to that of the  Fish creek and Lardeau mines. The  location of the group makes it evsdent  that it was oue of the principal sources  from which McCullough creek received  its placer gold. Tlie surrounding  mountains were originally capped  with quartzite whicli is .visible on the  very highest summits. Glacial erasion,  however, has removed this in'many  places leaving the slate, and quartz  exposed to a considerable extent as  well as the net woik of veinlets running at right angles to the principal  leads.  Mr. Bradley will shortly leave for  the coast and endeavour to interest  capital in the property/ Everyone  acquainted with the locality knows the  richness of the district in question iind  it is hoped that better transportation  facilities will be furnished next year.  It is practically certain a steamer will  be put on the Columbia above Death  Kapids which will bring this prominent free gold district within ten miles  of steamboat transportation. There  is plenty of water and timber for mining purposes in tho locality.1 As a well  known authority stated in a recent  special report to tho Hkhald regarding Ground Hog Bnsiu: "I believe  that with depth this will prove a very  rich free gold camp as everthing in the  geological formation of the couutrv  goes to strengthen this opinion. A  visit to the ground must convince  practical mining men of the worth of  Ground Hog Ba tin." These remarks  equally apply to the Eureka, whicli is  in the immediate vicinitv, and iu tlie  same mineral zone. It will be a lucky  day for Revelstoke when men with  money take hold of propei ties like the  Eurena. Gold is there in abundance  and the pioneers in exploitation will  not only reap rich rewards but be tbe  means of inducing a rush towards  further development.  Feather Social.  The Feather Social, held under the  auspices_of���������the-Ladies���������Aid of_the  Methodist church, at the home of Jlr.  and Mrs. Jtt. Hyland, Third street, last  Thursday evening, was a. most enjoyable success. Despite the heavy rain  the- commodious parlors weie well  filled.  During the time of assembling  Misses Jh.cnncr and Lennox rendered  excellent service at the piano. When  all were assembled, each person was  presented With a programme, daintily  decorated with feathers and blue ribbon, containing twenty-fivequotations  descriptiveof "OurFeathered Friends."  Miss Norah Kennedy having guessed  the largest number correctly was  awarded the prize consisting of a  medallion representing the Christ.  The ladies then did their part by  serving refreshments which were as  unique as enjoyable, after which  the company dispersed to the strains  of "Should Auld Acquaintance lie  Forgot." Proceeds will lie devoted to  improvements at the Parsonage.  TheRoarin''Game. '"..-.  Mr. H. A. Brown and Aid. Foote  had great success in securing subscriptions to the proposed bonspiel in  this city, having collected some $550 in  cash and prizes. Now.the fight will be  to get the* endorsement of the Kootenay Curling Association for holding  the big "stane and besom" event in  ltevelstoke this year. With that  object in view Mr. Brown left on  Tuesday to attend the meeting of the  association to he held in Rossland  tomorrow. We hope he will have  success as airy league sporting gathering has a tendency to advertise the  city.  If the curlers come thev- may lie sure  of hospitable treatment and maybe  a "wee drnppie o*t" to keep away the  cold.  ���������Children's  Wool  gloves and   mitts  25c. and 35c. a pair,   C, B.

(l-rom Onr Own Correspondent.)  ���������  Cajihouxu, Dec. .1.���������I have recently  visited a couple of groups on Mohawk  creek, which may Ire described as the  lirst turn ing to" the right up that  liaiueil aflor --Billy" Pool, and find  theni fully as I ielr as reported.  Ths Silver Dollar group, owned by  the e.st;rt(' of the late Joseph Best anil  Revelstoke nren, was the scene of a  rich gold strike while assessment work  was b.-iug done lecently. The big  lend on this group is of a peculi.ii*  character and seems to mark the  junction between the big free gold  belt and the silver-lead zone fnrllrei'  east* The discovery was made on a  lead from 7 to 15 feet wide tliat has  heen traced 3000 feet aud cross-cut in  seven places. Seveial assays were  mado running all the way from $8 to  $350 in gold besides being rich in silver-  arid a large percentage lend. I understand this property will probably be  purchased by eastern capitalist*-* and  extensively worked. The rich showings certainly warrant it.  Another property in tbe same locality is the Del Hay group of four claims  tliat wa-s bought by Indianapolis  people a short time ago This pi-omi-  ises lo become, in the neai future, a  prominent free gold shipper. The  Del Hay adjoins the well known McKay propei ty, the llowiestaUc, and*  has" three welt defined ledges running  from l.-> to 27 'feet The Colorado  claim lias been the scene of most  development in ilhis group and its 27  foot ledge shows up free gold all  across. Many assays have been made  and average "about" .$01.25 to the ton.  Mr. Averill, one of the owners, obtained JS'141 from a piece of quai tz knocked  oil* the ledge by himself.* The richness  of the rock is not������appar*ent to the.  naked eye as a number of samples  from which those showing gold wore  eliminated averaged $110. ' Cabins  have been built in ��������� preparation- for  engaging-a force of men aiid, iiJj supplies can be obtained soon enough,  work will be continued all winter.  The Del Ray is one of the best free  milling quartz propositions in this  vicinity and there is ample water  power "available for use as soon as the  erectiou of a mill is warranted.  There was a short run of the Northwestern mill at Goldfields dining the  past week arrd 10S tons of ore in the  bins nnd at the upper terminal of the  tramway were run through under the  direction of Frank V. Freeman. The  oi-o netted $S.S3 to tho ton in gold.  The new company that has been  organized to take over this property  will work it as early as possible in the  spring.  The Oyster-Criterion mill has started  running and works like a. charm.  Everything went particularly smoothly from the start and the plates show  lip already a considerable quantity of  the yellow metal. The manager, Mr.  Lade, is very much pleased with the  outlook.  of 15 cents per acre. The rate for  purchasing outright has been raised  from $5 to $10 per acre.  AHSKSHMKNT  AIT.

Railway and Other Taxes.  The amend ments to the ''Land Act"  introduced by the Chief Commissioner  on Friday Inst will have an important  bearing on the lumber industry, and  accordingly we give below a synopsis  of the principal provisions.  In tbe lirst 'place,' unpre-ernpted  timber lands will be offered to public  competition by cash bonus and leased  for a. period not exceeding 21 years to  the highest bidder. A rental of 25  cents per acre is to be paid in advance  and a royalty of 50 cents per thousand  on all timber cut. On each 400 acies  a sawmill, cutting 1,000 feet in 12  hours, must be operated for 6 months  iu the year unless the Ies. o.* Is excused  by the Lieutenant-Governor owing to  poor markets or other good reason.  The rent, if such mill is operated, is  operated, is reduced from 25 to 15  cents per acre.;; :  Special timber licences, not exceeding 640 acres, the fee being increased  from $50 per annum to 25 cents jier  acre, or $160 per annum. These can  be had for any period not exceeding 5  years upon ''payment of the. whole  rental in advance and renewals for  further periods may be given.  The gener.il rate of taxation for  timber is 50 cents per thousand and  25 cents per cord on spars, poles, etc.  Taxation on lands where no roj-ally  has been reserved is 'graduated running from $2 to $4 per thousand for  No. 1, $1.50 to $3 for No. 2 and $1 to  $2 50 for No. 3. These rates, when the  timlier is .manufactured in B.C., are  reduced' to a rate of 50 cents per  thousand.  COAL  AND Oil..  The fee for a prospecting licence has  been raised from $50 to $100 and when  discovery is proved, a lease for five  years will be given at an annual rent  K. of P. Elect Officers.

Debating the Speech from the  Throner- Taylor Government  Whip ��������� Seventy-two Suits  Again&t Dunsmuir.  (From Our Own Correspondent)  Victoria, Dec. 1.���������The  Opposition  was much surprised at the promptness  with whicli the Government' brought  down business when, for the first time,  there was no three or four days adjournment after the opening of the  .Legislature... Nothing has been done  of any importance beyond discussion  of the King's speech the debate on  whicli i.s not concluded at the time of  writing. It will probably end tomorrow. The noticeable features of  the debate were the speeches of the  Premier, Attorney-General, and leader  of the Opposition. The latterdiscusscd  matters in a dignified way that.some  of his followers would do well to  imitate.  On Friday Harry AVright moved and  XV. lt. Ross seconded the address in  reply. Both made good business-like  speeches and will be an addition to the  debating strength on the Government  side. On Saturday J. A. Mac-Donald  spoke for a long time and chiefly devoted his attention to the 2 per cent,  tux. The Premier followed and created' great enthusiasm. He defended  the action of the Government regarding the Houston incident* and stated  that the Governor acted strictly within  his rights. He also took up the Eraser  river bridge and pointed out its great  importance to Vancouver and New  Westminster in giving ri competing  line to the C. P. It. Regarding the  financial proposals, he appealed to the  House not to treat the matter as a  political one." It" should bo placed  above that and the proposals discussed  oil" their merits. "As to the Fernie  alfair, it was not within the power of  the Government' to proceed otherwise  l ban as directed bylaw and it could  not be said tliat they had disobeyed it  in the slightest degree. '' . ���������  Thc Premier, in conclusion, referred  to the Grand .Trunk Pacific railway  arrd pointed out that there was no  limitation to tliUU.elass^ of labour employed which mighEVes'uIt in flooding  the country with ��������� undesirable . immigrants. The Opposition were friends  of tlie party iu power at Ottawa but  had made no objection to this. The  Government, however, were doing  their duty in the matter.  The Premier concluded by assuring  the House that if there were any  omissions in the government's programme they would be supplied during the ssssion. If all the members  kept, well in mind the chief duty they  owed to British Columbia, this would  be perhaps the most successful parliament sho ever enjoyed.  John Oliver was in a funny humour  and closed the day's debate by a  speech dealing with everything but  the Speech. He was evidently put up  lo kill tinic.  Hon. Charles Wilson to-day made  his first speech in the House as a  member of the Cabinet and showed  himself a tower . of strength. He  handled Oliver without gloves and  scoied liim' for' making a harangue  against men who, with the exception  of himself, had fought side by side  with the member from Delta for two  seasons. He also referred- to tlie  Grand Trunk Pacific and spoke very  forcibly of-tUeDoiiiiniori"Governincut's  bixiress regarding Asiatic labour.  Milnnes, Bowser nrrd Drury ,al30  spoke.

There are, I think, few sensations  mors horrible than that of a man who  loses wife or child in a great city and  feels himself hopelessly at sea at tho  very outset of his search. I realized  this sensation to the full as I walked  away from my friend's house. I wns by  ���������that timo certain that something had befallen Helen. She might at that moment  be calling on me for help ns she did in  my dream. And yet I wns helpless, powerless. Which way should I turn amidst  that awful labyrinth of streets? Sho  had been more easy to find in'the desert  of Sahara than in that vast city.  I went home, hoping to find her there.  J looked into the dininir-room.

But tho Toora was  empty, and so wns the wholo house, emp*  ty, nt airy rate, of her presence. I  roamed from room to room for u, while,  too full of a sickening l'cnr to think or  speculate, but nt Inst I oould bear the  suspense no longer. I left the house and  drovo to the nearest pollco station and  gave information.  There is a certain monotonous regularity about tho ways arrd doings and  thoughts of our police which is exasperating at times like thnt of which I am  writing, but in spite of it their help is  valuable, and it gave me some further  hope to see how promptly their intricate  machinery was put in motion. Perhaps  I chafed somewhat urrder tho cold, ollicial questions of the inspector. He was  full of motive nnd cause, I was concerned only with result nnd effect. I  laughed when he asked me if there were  t<p "behind him. ovd at the same instant  looked round nry aiudio ns I have seen'  captive wild beasts look round a cage..

Ten minutes passed  and there was no sign of her coming. 1  went upstairs to our rooms and sat down  to smoke in my'studio. It was then  nearly three hours since she had left me,  and the afternoon was rapidly fading Into twilight. Still'I''did not feel uneasy;  it struck me that she had met sonic,  friend or other and made a call. She  know that I was busily intent on my picture and should* not object to being left  alone with it. So I sat there smoking  and reading, expectant of her voico on  the stairs at any moment.

The studio ]  was in darkness, there was no gleam of  light save the faint ray3 of a gas lamp in  the street outside. Something seemed to  suggest coming sorrow and trouble: the  air felt charged with it. I struck a  match and lighted the gas, and at that  moment the door opened to admit the  parlor-maid, carrying my reading-lamp.  I wanted to ask her li Helen had returned, and could find no words to do so.  She set down the lamp and looked  at  ' "My mistress has not come in yet, sir,"  she said. "Will you dine?���������cook says  that dinner will be spoiled���������it's nearly  seven o'clock, sir."     .  Our usual dinner-hour was six, a convenient one for us because it was neither  too early nor too late. I glanced at my  watch- It was live minutes to seven.  Whore could Helen be? It was nearly  four hours since she left home, and  wherever she might have gone I felt -sure  that had all been well she worrld hnve returned to dinner. Then t remembered  with a sickening sense of fear that we  had promised to accompany some friend*  to the theater that evening, and had arranged to call for them at a quarter to  eight. Even as I remembered that, a r.ry  of hope flashed upon ine: it might be  that Helen had gone, there.

But later in the day the  police took me to a lonely spot in Kensington Gardens where they had discovered traces of a struggle. The wheel  of a conveyance had impinged on the  grass, and near it were tire marks of  feet. Close by lay a parcel in brown  paper which proved to contain the two  books purchased by Helen at Hatchard's.  It turned my heart to ice when I saw  those books, for their discovery seemed  to suggest a tragedy. But there was  worse in store.  "Here's something else," said an inspector. "It lay close by the books, but  whether it has anything to do with the  case or not I don't know.   Look'at It."  He held up a carte-de-visite portrait  as he spoke.

It seemed like a  century   to  me,   for  as   the   long'days  lengthened    into    longer    weeks    they  brought me no news  of Helen.    I had  spared   no  time  and   had   spent  every  available penny in my efforts to trace  her, b.ut without result.    She had vanished as completely as though something  had snatched her awny from earth.   Thi  ordinary methods of the police were ah  solutely futile, they resulted    in    mere  nothingness.    After a time I discardc.  them and turned enquiry agent on  m*.  own account.   It seemed to mo that thi  clue to the mystery of Helen's disappearance lay  in  the strange man who bin'  shown so keen an interest in my "Jul  iet." I secured the portrait of him whrcT  the police picked up and began to loo],  for hfm diligently.   I 'hunted the foreigi  quarters of London, I spent hours, days  aye, weeks in the cafes and restaurant*  frequented by foreigners, always seekin;  a, face, the face of the man wnose coun  Urfelt   presentment   I   carried   in   my  breast-pocket.

And yet it was hopelessly weal:  I felt that from the first.   There was n*  name on the card, no address, nothing t>  show where or by whom the photograp"  was taken.  I d"o not think that I ever gave uj  hope altogether, but at the end of th  year there came upon me that awful  sickness of heart which only hope de  ferred and disappointed can cause. Fo:  me H had been a terrible year. I had  lost my wife with all the horror of un  certainty as to her fate. Had I found  her dead it had been better than to  ^know-that she, had-disappeared-from.m*:  in a fashion that suggested all manner  of nameless horrors. I hnd searched for  her and found no trace of her. Now it  seemed to mo that it was utterly useless  to do more. My resources were almost  exhausted, for I had earned no money  during that twelve months of sickening  suspense, and all that I had previously  saved had been spent in my efforts to  find Helen. And I was.no nearer finding her at the end of tbe year than at  the beginning.  I sat in my studio one afternoon, staring vacantly at a canvas that Rtood upon  the easel near the window. It had its  baok turned to me; I had turned It that  way months before, for it was* the picture upon Which f had been working  when Helen left me, nnd I had never felt  able to look at it after realizing her loss.  I wondered if I should ever paint again,-  if years would heal my wound, If time  would soothe the gnawing agitation that,  still possessed me. I got up and began  to pace up and down the room, all the  bitterness of the past year welling up.  afresh within my heart, and it was while  I wns thus sorrowfully engaged that I  heard a hesitating knock at the door. Jt  was so faint that at first I paid no heed  to It, but when it was repeated in a louder though still curiously hesitating fashion, I went over and opened the door and  looked out.  The landing wns dim with shadows and  at first I saw no one. But presently I  caught sight of the figure of a man  standing within the gloom. He breathed  my name in a low voice.  "ifr. Vincent���������thc painter?" he whispered, questioningly.  "Yes," I replied. "Who are you?  Come in; I can't sec you there."  "Are you alone?" he asked. "Quito  alone?"  "I am quite alone. Come lnj why do  you stand there?"  I drew back and motioned him to enter. The mnn stepped out of the gloomy  shadows and followed me. A tall, blacj--  halred, black-boarded man with ft grortV  cloak and slouched bat.  lie put the door  "Yes," he said, "yes, It was I Hint, you  saw there. I snw you too. 1 was looking at your 'Juliet.' The picture of your  wife." J  He walked slowly across the room, nnd  then I noticed that he limped und shuffled in his wnlk. He dropped wearily Into a chair nnd fnced me again. I went  up to him with a curious feeling nt my  henrt.  "Why hnve you conic here?" I cried.  "Do you know thnt I have been searching for you for a yenr?   Why have you  come?   Is lt "  "To tell you of your wife," he snid.  "Yes, that is it. I have endured much to  do that.    But I promised her."  I nerved myself with nn effort and  tried to speak, but my tongue had  grown dry.  "Go on!" I said at last, the words rattling in my mouth.   "Where "  "She is in the fortress of St. Peter nnd  Paul," he answered. "I wns there, too,  until they sent me off to Siberia. I escaped en route, you understand?"  I understood nothing. I sank into the  nearest-ghair and stared nt liiin.  "Timii ivanovft.ch,5-t he said. "Stepan  Iyanovitch. It may be that she never  mentioned me; why should she?

Tliey  were sent for as a last resort. From  almost the first dose Mr. Kent says  he felt benefited by them. After taking four boxes, he was able to sit  up. Seventeen boxes cured him completely.  Mr. Kent's cure caused great excitement at the time. People who had  heard of it came from far and near  to see him, and all went away convinced that Dodd's Kidney Pills will  cure Bright's Disease.  This conviction is strengthened by a  number of other cases reported  throughout the country where this  great Kidney remedy has been used,  and Bright's Disease vanquished.  would go to him; surely he would help  me.   And there was the Prince Z- , '.a  whose family Helen had been governess;  he, too, -would not refuse his aid. I  thought of these things and took oour-.  age. That evening I spent in drawing rip  a statement of my case. The next morning I called upon Lord A-���������-, and saw  him personally. And when I left him it  was with new hope, nnd yet ho had told  me kindly enough not fo.be too sure of  success, for the matter bristled -with difficulties and obstacles.

One day, however, Mr. Widener  had  an hour  of   idleness,  and  strolled  through his huge stables.

In an Irish town the lads of a school  acquired the habit of smoking, and resorted to the most ingenious methods to  conceal it from the master. In this they  were successful until one evening, when  the master caught thern puffing most vlg- '  orously. "How now?" shouted ho to one  of the culprits. "How dare you be smoking?"

Inquired  (the lawyer, In bland tones that indicated that he-.had entirely regained his  ���������self -possession.  i "I refer," responded Claude, "to the  ���������statements current here In this village  (that you have taken possession of Rolff  Bouse arid a portion of the adjoining  ���������property under authority of deeds pur-  ,, ���������porting to be given by me. I need not  remind you that I gave no such deeds,  and "that there is no possible chance for  ��������� there to bo any misunderstanding on  the point that It was my wish, most  distinctly expressed, to place no incumbrance whatever on Rolff House,  or any of the homestead property, or to  Imperil niy possession of it ln.any way.  (Tou probably can Inform me whether  the rumors I have henrd are true.  "Well,  really,  my  dear sir,"  replica  .ci-  are aware, of course, that a number of  papcts were drawn and signed by you.  Intended to secure me for moneys  loaned you, some of which moneys I  was forced to borrow. Among these  securities, were certainly two deeds,  which received your signature In due  ���������form, and are properly witnessed, and  which I have doubtless treated somewhat differently from what you expect,  ed, owing to the fact that I supposed  circumstances had rendered your return home for a series of years exceedingly problematical. These deeds were  intended, of course, only as collateral  security, and I never had any Idea of  using them until the outbreak of war  rendered your return uncertain and tho  Impossibility of securing anybody to re.  main ln Rolff House called for some  disposition* of the property. Under  the circumstances, I placed the deed3  on record, and am nominally the owner  * of the property in question, but of  course I consider myself bound as a  man of honor to keep the matter open  for a satisfactory adjustnrent if we can  come to amicable terms."  "I confess I do not understand you,"  replied Claude. "I wish to state, with  the utmost distinctness, that I signed  no deeds by way of collateral security  or for any other purpose, and that if  any such deeds are ln existence they are  fraudulent. My instructions were explicit, and our understanding complete,  that there was to be no mortgage, incumbrance or obligation whatever 'relating to Rolff House."  "Ah, my.dear young friend," replied  the lawyer, still maintaining his smiling  and insinuating mien, "I was more than  half suspicious at the time of our business arrangements that you did not  fully understand all the details we entered into. You left all the arrangements pretty much ln my hands, and  expressed your willingness to be governed by my Judgment���������In fact, 1  thought you were far too careless of  your Interests. Of course, left to act  almost entirely on my own Judgment, I  drew up such papers as I considered  wise nnd necessary ln the "premises, and  you signed them. I am quite confident  you did not critically examine all the  papers you signed. It is well, perhaps,  for you to remember this fact, beforu  proclaiming any papers that may be ln  existence fraudulent. It might be difficult for you to disprove your own  signature."  ��������� "What I mean," replied Claude, "Is  that I expressly Informed you that  Rolff House was not to be Included ln  any of the transactions, and you could  not have mistaken me in the matter.  If you took advantage of my confidence  In yoii to disobey my Instructions and  deceive me in the nature of the papers  'drawn up, it places your conduct In an  equally bad light. The fraud ls not les-i  for being a cunning Instead of a bold  one. Now, sir, I wish only to be informed if you claim to have deeds covering Rolff House and the . adjoining  estate?"  "I do, most certainly," replied the  lawyer. "And I will add that they are  regularly drawn, and duly signed and  CWitnessed.   Stil, as said "  "That" Is'enough," replied Claude,  flushing with indignation. "I do nov  feel able to-day to .discuss this matter  further.

He ".tent at once to the huir.ble  domicile occupic by Carl Crum, ar.<2  was heartily greeted by that worthy o'.a  fellow. After a (rood nlorht's rest, lie  had spent, the morning in hearing Sror.t  old Carl a full account of all that hr.d  passed during his absence, and in t.-.e  afternoon had come to lawyer Saybrook's office and had the interview  detailed in the last chapter. It appearo  that he had not received the letter dn--  r-atchod to him by Rosa and old Carl  by the hands of the privateer sailor,  but, becoming uneasy ln rusaid to tiie  plans of British invasions, that we* a  bruited ln Europe, and resolved If possible to give his services to hla country  ** Claude was exceedinly anxious to see  Rosa, but very much perplexed how ',0  gratify lrrls wish without Injury to his  6elf-respect. He understood well enough  that the old farmer would be decidedly  opposed to his having any Interview  .with her, and' he felt scruples as to hla  right to use any influence to induce her  to disobey her father's wishes ln any  .way. But If "love laughs at lock *  smiths," lt certainly has a way of overcoming lesser obstacles; and Claude  soon resolved In his mind to send a  note to Rosa by old Carl, asking her to  meet him ln the old wood, at their  tryBtlng place, at a certain hour, provided flrst that she secured the consent  ef her mother to the Interview. In tnis  .way he felt that he had compromised  -with his conscience to a sufficient degree, and at the same time would secure his object, as he remembered that  be had been a favorite with Mrs. Bruyn,  and did not doubt that she would readily consent to the interview.  In response to his note, he received  a tender and brief epistle from Rosa,  telling him that her mother had consented to the interview, but only on  condition that she accompanied her and  was present. Claude could not well object to this arrangement, spite of his  anxiety to meet Rosa alone and ha.ve  a full explanation and understanding  ln regard to the obstacles that had been  thrown into the pathway of their love.  A little before the hour he proceeded  to the appointed place, and had not  long to wait ere Rosa and her mother  appeared. Claude's bearing was so  courteous and sincere, that it at once  dispelled any prejudice against him  that might have been excited in Mrs.  Bruyn'B mind. And, withal, he looked  so handsome, and his evident suffering  condition so appealed to the sympathies  of the good lady's womanly heart, that  it was well for him that she had chosen  to be present at the Interview.  Claude first greeted Mrs. Bruyn, and  then taking Rosa's hand pressed It to  his lips. Not a word was said by either,  but their eyes told the tale of mutual  distress and longing during the months  of their separation. ,  Claude's story was soon told. ������������������,.  "My early return," he said, "Is no  'doubt a surprise. The war had hardly  broken out, however, before I resolved  "I knew it���������I knew it." he exclaimed.  "God bless you! The devotion of a  lifetime will be too little reward for  your faith in me, Rosa."  "Say no more, Claude," answered  Mrs. Bruyn, quietly separatmg tin  lovers. "I believe in your fidelity and  goodness, and see through Mr. Saybrook's evil plans. But much wrong  has been done, and lt may be hard to  right It. It Is not advisable to proton:**  this Interview. If you wil receive a  little advice from me, I will suggest a  course that may lead to the evil tlrat  has been  dono being corrected."  "Oh, most gladly," replied the youn.v  man.  "Mr. Bruyn ls deeply Incensed nt  what he regards as your treachery nnd  recklessnefjs," continued the lady, "and  It will be difficult to reverse his opinion. Indeed, he looks upon you i-.n  hopelessly fallen from good. lDut although I fear for the result, I uin w.u*  pelled to suggest that you po to lilr.i  and endeavor to explain all that seems  wrong to him in your conduct lie wil,  not approve of your resuming your  friendship with Rosa unless you disabuse his mind of the impression he hns  gained���������no doubt chiefly through Mr.  Saybrook's influence. It would bo  wrong for Rora to disobey him, and  hold communication with you clandestinely ln anyway. I could not approve  of such a course, and I cannot believe  that she would so forget her duty. I  have accompanied her here, because I  thought lt was'necessary there should  be an explanation that would perhaps  prevent future trouble. So far as I urn  concerned, my dear Claude, I would  willingly admit you to our home as the  most welcome of guests and friends;  but lt Is not my province to decide in  this matter, and you will have to secure Mr. Bruyn's consent before again  attempting to see or communicate with  Rosa,"  ,   The young man's head dropped.  "This decision seems hard," he said.  "I am fearful���������but, no, I will do as you  say. I am strong In my own sense of  integrity; I may have been foolish, but  criminal���������never. I think all can be explained, and I will trust in Mr. Bruyn's  Justice and'charity."  With this understanding the Interview  .-terminated.    Claude   was    allowed   to  to take the first opportunity to reach    ������lve Rosa a farewell kiss, and to whis-  the lawyer, rubbing his liandB and smll- ,��������� her hour ot need, he had taken pas-  1ns as pleasantly as possible, "I do not #ace for nome In the monner.and with  ���������exactly comprehend your meaning.

I  left Dresden and went to Hamburg and  other Dutoh ports, but could find no  vessels going to America I then went  to France, as I had heard that occas*.  sionally an American privateer would  avoid the British blockade, and run  into port for repairs. I went to Calais,  and after waiting there until I was almost discouraged, I was gladdened one  day by learning that a schooner had  escaped the blockade and run into .the  harbor, and was probably'an American  vessel. I took a boat and went on  board, and found, to my joy, that it waa  an American privateer. I at once offered the captain to Bblp with him as a,  common sailor, and, as I was an American, he took me at once. On our return  I was hurt In an engagement with a  "British brig, which accounts for my  (weak condition.    But I shall get well  If���������If "  i He hesitated, as If somewhat fearful  to repeat the thought that had occurred  to him; and Mrs. Bruyn quickly replied:  "I trust you will get well without any  'If,' Claude. You are young and of  .vigorous constitution, and a long and  useful life should be yours."  I "But, my dear Mrs. Bruyn, I would  not care to live a moment If the dream  of happiness I have cherished should be  rudely destroyed. I think it needs no  .words to tell how truly Rosa and I love  each other. No one else can ever fill  * her place In my heart. I am alone in  the world, without kith or kin; my  friends seem to turn to enemies; those  whom I trusted with implicit faith have  proven false and tried to rob me of my  inheritance; and If, now, the one dream  of happiness that I have cherished  above all others is to be ruthlessly shat.  tered, I shall regret that the wound 1.  received on board the Harpy did not  Strike me dead at once."  The young man spoke .with much  emotion, and his evident suffering and  pale, emaciated features, added to the  apparent sincerity of his declaration.  "You are sure you speak honestly,  Claude?" asked Mrs. Bruyn.  "As -I live, I do," replied the young  ���������man, fervently.     ������������������  "I do not question the truth ot your  iStatement,=continued^the~good=lady;=  ���������"but perhaps it is well to have an explanation of a matter that I confess has  influenced my opinions to a certain extent Not many months ago, Mr. Saybrook exhibited a letter from you that  seemed to Indicate that you had formed  connections In Europe that hardly render your present statement of youi  feelings toward Rosa sincere."  The young man colored, but It was  -���������-���������ith indignation more than embarrassment.  "Carl Crum has told me." he replied!  "of the base use made of a mere phrase  In a letter of mine, written ln humorous  reply to some of Mr. Saybrook'B suggestions that I might have become Involved ln love affairs In Europe. I now  See through his double-eyed duplicity  and villainy. It was his purpose not  only to rob me of my property and ot  the only girl I have ever cared for, but  to Incite meto, conduct that would destroy in my heart the pure love It cher.  ished. Oh, weak as I am, if I had him  here I would make him own his duplicity or take the consequences."  "Do nothing rash. Claude," pleaded  Mrs. Bruyn. "Public opinion will come  to your aid if you have been wronged.  Rely first on the law for justice, and do  nothing to prejudice your cause."  . "And did you believe that I had s-a  ���������oon proved false and villainous, Rosa"  lie asked, turning inipetously to tbo  fair girl.  . "No, Indeed, Claude," replied Rosa,  With a frank and kindly tone that indi-  cater her perfect confidence In him. "I  did not doubt you for a moment, or believe there was anything in the letter  that you couid not readily explain.  Mother can bear me witness In thia  Yet where nil was so dark and everything Eeemed conspiring against us, I  could not explain your silence of your  strange words even to my own mind,  so I attempted no defence of you, but  Uept my belief In your good faith in  my  own heart."  Claude fold������d her Impetuously to his  heart.  per to her a pledge of his unalterable  devotion, which was returned by a  glance that assured him that she could  he trusted to the uttermost and then  he turned away his soul filled anew  .with Indignation toward the author of  his unhapplncss.  He took early occasion to have an Interview with Mr. Bruyn. The old farmer received him curtly, and only after  the most earnest pleadings gave hla  consent to even hear his explanations.  But this concession was of no benefit  to the young man.' The old fellow shut  both his ears and his heart to his pleadings, and remained obdurate and unconvinced in spite of all the earnestness and eloquence with which Clauds  ���������defended his conduct.  I "No, no, no," he said at last, "I tell  you young fellow, that I've made up my  mind on this matter. You're none of  thc kind for my Rosa, She must marry  a sensible, plain fellow,* with no rattlebrain notions about him. You don't  cars for her, and she's made up her  -mind to some one else.

CHAPTER XXX.  , Recognizing that he had a hard battle' before him, Claude devoted himself,  heart and soul to the contest he had  In hand. The thought of regaining his  property, and taking revenge on the  knavish lawyer, was some relief to hia  wounded feelings. There was balm inaction, at least, and day and night ho  gave his time and thoughts to consultation with his lawyer and to details of  the proposed suit He did not. rely  alone on such legal talent as the little  village afforded. He retained the services of an experienced and prominent  lawyer from a neighboring town, who  undertook to unravel the thread of  villainy, which he was convinced from.  Claude's statements had been perpetrated by\Anthony Saybrook.  : The name of this lawyer was Hals-  tead. He was a short, keen, cool man  whose sharp gray eyes and broad brow:  Jndlcated^unusual^mental^acutenesa.,  After a careful study of the situation,  Mr. Halsted decided oh his plan of cam.  palgn. He determined that tt  ,was necessary to undermine the  enemy's defences by counter-plots, and.  If possible, to create a defection in his  camp that would lead to a revelation  of the methods by which the forgery  of the deeds had been accomplished.  Choosing his agents with keen Judgment, he sounded every person who had  in any way been employed by lawyer  Saybrook, and was not long in getting  a hint that the widow Grewy would  become a valuable witness If she was  ,won  over to  therr  service.    And  this  ���������alas for feminine constancy!���������was  rot a difficult r.-atter.. Lawyer Hals-  tead, lt 1 appened, was a bachelor oC  conslderuiile wealth. Though verging;  close on to sixty, he was still well preserved, and of a gallant and vivacious  disposition not' unlikely to impress ths  fancy of a susceptible and lonely widow!  like Mrs. Grewy.  Interviews were- arranged, ln which,  little by little, the confidence of Mrs.  Grewy was gained, and step by step  was learned from her every detail of  the plot for the possession of Rolff  House, which her sharp cars and eyes  had enabled her to obtain, ln spite of  tne secrecy witn which tlie lawyer and  his son. supposed they had conducted  their conferences.  The first Intimation that lawyer Saybrook had of the mine that had been  arranged to be sprung under the very  citidal of his defences, was affordel  by the retirement ot the widow]  Grewy from his house and service. Sha  refused to give any explanations, and  Was firm against all promises and  cajolements. The lawyer, in his desperation, went even so far as. to la-/  his hand and fortune at her feet; biA  it was too late.  (To be Continued.)  Wormy Apples.  There is nothing new about wernij  apples except the way to avoid Saving them. There are several sr.e ia  of grubs or worms which work in r.p.  ���������plea, but the one which does nearly ail  the damage is the core worm. 'lb3  core worm ls the offspring of the cod.  lin moth, and this is the incsct which  a man wants to fight in his appl������  trees.  The best general remedy for the  core worm or codlin moth, accoidlng  to information furnished by the Vermont experiment station, ls Paris  gieen. Some apple growers use London purple, others use white arsenic,  but they amount to the same th ng.  They all poison the core worms. Other insecticides like hellebore, kercse-is  or sulphur are not effective in ' thii  case.  In the hands of the average man Par.  Is green is the best medicine for ths  codlin moth. The poison shou'd be  thoroughly mixed with water at ths  rate of a quarter of a pound to the  barrel,���������that is about one pound ol  Paris green to 160 to 200 gallons ol  water. About a pound of lime ought  to be added to each barrel of water,  which will prevent scalding ��������� of the  foliage. It should be applied with a  spray pump and fine nozzle.  In case bordeaux' mixture is rssd  on the .tree the Paris green may ba  added directly to that solution at thi  rate already recommended.

Tlie (irivt-rntnciit is to bo heartily  culigiiiUilnti'il upon (.���������(���������iinlmiig, ns fur  a> possilili*, the tiixritiun of the luinlici'  industry of tire province. The iinpo-  .-ition uf a spocial tax upon tiiulior cut-  in the Railway 1k-U anil tlio F.. and N.  land grant will remove a largo artimiiit  nf discontent. Tiro unfair conditions  existing up to tlio piesent. whereby  liiiiil-oi-nit'U operating on tlio lands  mentioned eonliibiiteil nothing to llio  Treasury,* will lie removed by the  amend merits to the "Laud Act' now  lief ore the Legislature, and a largo  sunr annually added to the public  revenue.  lint irr regard to the ehanges proposed as to special licences tlie amendments are not. so satisfactory. We  hope such representations will bu mndo  lo the Governliient as will induce  their modification. In this connection it^mist be: Ixirnc in mind that., at  the coast, rill lumbermen are on an  equal footing while in tho interior  there i.s an abrupt distinction between  lands in the railway lieltiindtlio.se  outside it. The railway belt, extending us it does twenty miles oir cither  side of the C. P. P., places the Limber  lands under Provincial control a long  distance from the main artery of communication with the.markets of the  prairie to which A Vest ICootfirmy mill-  inon must look for disposition of their  surplus product.  .Such   being   the case it is only rea-  son.ible to ask that most careful study  be   made of the, situation  before, the  changes proposed are crystallized into  legislation.-.. * The     main     facts    are  briefly    these.       Ini   the      railway  belt    the    timber    limits   are     held  al an  annual rental of So per square  in ile.     These; lands   are   in   a   more  favourable position than those under  Pi-ovincial   control   upon  which  it is  proposed  to  levy a rental of $1(10 per  square mile or .32 times as much.    Not  only -this, the   special   licence; is the  poor  man's  licence  and   every effort  ���������ihould   be   made   to   encourage those  who go into the unexplored districts  of  tlie  province   and   locate   timber  lands which, as soon as theg are operated,   will   produce  a   large revenue.  The revenue at present derived from  the lumber industry is enormous, and,  instead of curtailing its sure increase  by   short  sighted   impositions on the  poor man who discovers the source, of  supply, it   would   be   better, even, to  reduce the licence fees and thus stimulate exploration.     The returns from  stumpage would be ten times as great  as   the  amount  derived from licence  rentals.  Irr the last fiscal  year the following  revenue was derived:  pays the fees and fulfils the conditions  i imposed by law.  The contrast with foes imposed by  tho Dominion i.s certainly enough to  wai-rant a forcible objection to the  j l'.iposeil increase of rental. This  affects the Kootenay.**. more than any  other part of tho Province, and Kevelstoke in particular.  AVhy a man cannot transfer his  right, in a timber'limit it. is impossible  to iindei-stanil, and, providing the rent  is paid,' thoro should lie no objection.  As to the last proposal it is certainly  just that, a half mile limit should only  pay half the rent, of a lull mile.   ���������  A\'o commenced these matters to tho  attention of the Government witli the  assurance that, if tho lumbermen's  wishes are met, the revenue will not  suiter Imt, largely iir crease. Hovelstoke niiUmen paid $.j0.01J0 into the  Treasury last year and this sum will  shortly lie doubled if the work of the  timber cruiser is encouraged, not  hampered. The legislation nt present  proposed will have tho latter effect.  DEATH RAPIDS.

The lumbermen do not  object to the .-tuiiipngo, realizing thai  they should provide a reasonable portion of the revenue. Hut thoy do  object lo tiie proposed additional  charges for licences which will deter-  many from engaging in the exploitation of our timlier resources by reason  of a heavy i-ontul and insecurity of  tenure.  Tlie old fee of SI00 was too much,  but that might remain. The additional .Minis 'proposed, however, make the  runt altogether beyond reason and  should l>e cut out at once. The lumbermen only ask what is right. They  would be content were legislation  passed on the following basis:  (a) Licences to he equivalent tori  yearly lease renewable, by right, on  payment of the yearly fee in advance:  (b)" That tho fee remain, as at pres"  out. Sit') per square mile:  (c) That licences be transferralrle.  This is most important as it would  f-xpedite the sale of and dealing with  standing timber:  (d) Provision that where only n  half or quarter mile can be secured the  licence fee be reduced in proportion.  The flrst proposal will remove much  trouble. AVhon a man discovers timber nnd is willing to pay the rent on it  he is eertainly entitled, ns a right, to  Jiold it against all coiners, provided he  These two words have a sinister  sound and the locality known by the  name, has had, arrd always will havo,  a, sinister eli'ect on the progress of  Revelstoke until this obstruction to  navigation of the upper Columbia is  minimised as far as possible. AVe are  entitled to demand that the best  transportation facilities in reason lie  all'orded a district so rich, not only in  potential, hut proved mineral wealth  as the. Big Ilend. The surface scratching of the placer miners in early days  provided a rich harvest for many, but  later investigation has located some  of tho sources frmu which it is believed prehistoric rivers and glaciers  eroded the golden grains of bullion.  Placer, mining is ephenial, except irr  deep diggiiigs.-.-but quart/, mi nos are  permanent.  Provincial revenue  is derived  very  largely   from   exploitation of natural  resources. ;  To .obtain   thn.tr e venue  facilities     of  development    of   such  resources   must  he   provided.    Of no  place is this more true than of the Big  Bend.    The,   only   feasible    way     to  afford  such  facilities   is   a   tramway  round Death Rapids and a steamer on  the -upper Columbia. These are proper  projects   for   government   assistance,  if the necessity is strongly represented  such assistance  will,   we   believe,   be  given.    The subsidy   to   the   steamer  "Hovelstoke" is about to expire. AVhy  not obtain a. continuance of n, similar  amount to the upper link in the  chain  of transportation we suggest?    This,  and a fair measure of aid to the tramway mentioned, would permit actual  proof heing given to the. world of  that  wealth, which those   fully   acquainted  with the Big Bend know to exist there.  Revelstoke would double its population in a couple of years if tlris .-.cheme  were carried out. A railway will come,  we are. sure, but now is the   time   for  action-    Lot every man in J?evelstoke  put bis shoulder to'the wheel, 'strengthen Thomas  Taylor's   hands   in   the  demands   in   this   direction   that   we  believe   he   will   make on the government.

That thoy can well pay more for their  valuable franchises is conceded on all  sides and a share of their rapidly  increasing i-ovonues should certainly  he diverted to tlie public purse.  -.Amendments to the Land Act are  also foreshadowed as a source of  furl her revenue.

Kveryone else will e������ilorse the  notion of the Government.  We nolo, also, thnt another elfort is  being made to obtain justice from tho  Dominion. This matter wa.s referred  to in this column a fow weeks ago and  we then stated enough of the unfairness  of present conditions to convince  unbiassed renders of tho necessity of  unceasing pressure until the Federal  authorities give us our rights. The.ru  are. several other matters mentioned  in tho Speech hut the above are the  most important. So far as is known  at present wo believe all fair minded  citizens will agree that the proposals  of the Government have much to  recommend them.  FINANCIAL PROPOSALS. I  THE KINO'S SPEECH.  Since our last, issue we have received  the text, of the Speech from the Throne  at tho opening of tho Provincial legislature last Thursday, and find it well  worthy of most, (���������aicfiil consideration  The part dealing with finances shows  a clear cut policy thai, will, we are  sure, meet with the approval of the.  people of the Province. It is pr-nposed  to meet the present deficit by "the  issuance of Treasury warrants extending over a short period of years arrd  payable in annual instalments." This  is an eminently satisfactory way of  dealing with a difficult position. This  doficit has been largely brought about  hy the criminal prodigality of the late  administration and it would not be.  just to tax posterity for n. debt ajlarge  portion of which wa.s incurred for  ephermnl purposes. In the speech  there is no mincing of thc renson why  this method was adopted. It is "the  unfavourable condition for obtaining  a loan in the London market."  Additional taxation will be required  to meet the annual instalments on the  pi'oposed Treasury warrants arrd wo  await, with interest, parti cu In is of |,li-  Even the strongest opponents of the  present Government* must admit that  it has shown commendable promptness  in bringing hefore the Legislature on  the first day of the session practically  all the important business outlined in  the King's Speech. The members have  now before them a* new Assessment  Act, and important aniendenls to the  Land, Coal Tax and Coal JMines Act  together with an Act for raising the  sum of $1,000,000 by a series of Treasury debentures re-payable in ten  annual instalments of $100,000 each.  It must, in this connection, he stated  that the Government has to meet* a  deficit of nearly a million and a half  left by the Prior administration, the  expenditure for 1902-3 being !*>.*l.3l)3,]S2  against a revenue of $2,011,030. Of  this half a million wns paid on account  of the JNew AVestminster bridge.  lion. R. G. Tallow was compelled,  therefore, to adopt drastic measures  and lias shown the courage of his  conviction that the era of deficits must  cease This necessitates additional  taxation, the most important features  of whicli are set out in the Assessment  Act. One thing we are pleased to  notice is that the taxation of railways  is fixed at thc full assessed value and  at the same rate as ordinary real  estate. This more than trebles the  res-enue from that source.  Annther matter is the imposition of  a tax on all lumber cut on lands where  no royalty is paid. This i.s evidently*  directod at the K. k X Railway lands  and removes the cinch .Mr. Dunsmuir-  and his associates up to the present  have had by reason of non-taxation  To encourage saw mills in the province  a reliate'of all taxation over fifty cents  per thousand in respect of timlier  manufactured in   British Columbia is  over his heart "I am a free trader  after the school of Gladstone. Bright  and John Stuart Mill." but where, oh  where, are his free trade principles  now? The only free trade he has  exercised has boon trading* the public  funds and territory for tho monetary  support of such men as Senator Cox  and Klias Rogers. The promised reductions in tho tarilf havo not eventuated. The promised economy in  administration has vanished into thin  air. Not an item in tho Liberal platform has been eaiTiod out and Sir  AVilfrid Laurier will appeal to the  people with nothing to support him  unblushing eU'routery and control of  the money bags.  The Conservative patty, on the  other hand, stands whero it alway  stood. Planted firm on the rook of  the National Policy, synonymous with  National Prosperity since its inception,  it will conic before the peoplo upstand-  .ing with a clear face looking towards  good government and protection for  home industries. I lad the present  opposition been in power for the past  few years there would have been no  refusal to requests for an export duty  on silver-lead ores.

The lumber industry would  have received adequate protection  and the fishery protective service  would not have, .consisted of slow,  unwieldy steamers that any good  poaching vessel can promptly show  ils heel. to.

VADE, LAURIER,  It is practically certain that a lJo-  irriiiion genei-iil election will be held  during one of the first two months of  the coming year. The people will  then have achance to assert themselves  and wc believe they will, with no uncertain voice, bid the present Dominion government hand over the reins  of power to the Consul vative party.  Many indications point to this, ft  was particularly evidenced towards  the close of the recent session when  Sir Wilfrid Laurier aird his colleagues  showed themselves totally unable to  withstand the onsets of the Opposition  and took refuge in abuse and ill temper instead of making n statesmanlike  defence of the policy or their government.  And why should the electors of Canada support a government returned to  power' orr one platform and legislating  on its opponent's?

The pamphlets we nre republishing  regarding the Tin ill Campaign in  Great Britain nre certainly of aii educative nature. The one below, No. 10,  deals with the fallacy that the consumer pays all an import duty, so  often stated as a fact by free traders,  and we fail to see how a careful consideration of the matter can enable  anyone to arrive at any other conclusion thnn that given below. In  this connection we might point out  that the facts and figures affecting  Great Britain are as fully applicable  to Canada and these contributions to  Mr. Chamberlain's campaign have a  much wider significance thnn the discussion of affairs within tbe territorial  limits of the British Isles.  NO.    10���������TAXING THE  FOHEIGN-ER.  It is commonly alleged by opponents  of preferential tariffs that "all import  duties are paid by the consumer," that  is, that if a duty is put on any imported article, the price of that article is  always and necessarily* increased by  the full ainout of the duty. The community as purchaser therefore loses  more by the increase of prices than the  State gains by the yield of the duty.  If this theory is true, it "is impossible  to "tax the foreign produces," or make  hiin pay through an import duty for  access to our market, as nearly all  foreign nations make us pay for access  to theiis.  This theory is taken for granted in  many publications of the Cobden Club.  But it has been rejected, after can -  fui examination,  by the best* modern  economists.  The late Professor Henry Sidgwic'r,  of Cambridge, says: "Unless foreign  products are completely excluded by  . import duties, such duties will partly  have the effect of levying a tribute on  foreign producers, the amount and  duration of which may in cerlain  cases be considerable. (Principles of  Political Economy, p 49.)  Professor Seligman, of Columbia  University, New York, says:���������  "It is obvious that cases may arise  where it is not true that the 'tariff is  a tax' in the sense that the whole burden of an import duty is necessarily  borne by the consumer." (Incidence  of Taxation, p. 303.)  HOW A. TARIFF WORKS.  The following example is given in  the words of the eminent economist,  Professor Sidgwick:-���������  "A simple case will show how a  duty may at once protect tbe native  manufacturer adequately and recoup  the country for the expense of protecting him. Suppose that a 5 per cent,  duty is imposed on foreign sil*-s; and  that in consequence, after a certain  interval, half the silks eon-uincii ar *  the product of native industry, and tlrat  the price of die whole has risen 2.J per  cent.     It is obvious that, under these  r ise   in   the   American price.    It wa**  also proved:  (2) That "the duty of five cents per  dozen was imposed upon eggs by the  McKinley tariff is paid by the foreign  producer not by the consumer."  (3) That foreign producers "have  dropped the valuation on most farm  products just about the amount of the  duty imposed   by  the McKinley Bill."  (4) That "they have to take 80 per  cent, less for their horses."  Prance. ���������The following statement is  derived from official returns of the  French Government:���������  In 1802 the duty on imported fresh  lieof was raised from 4s. lOd. to 10s. Id.  a cwt., and that on imported fresh  miittonfrom 4s. lOd. to 12s. lid. a cwt.  So far from prices being raised by  this increaso of duty, theaverage price  of beef fell from 7d. a lb. in 1801 to  UJd. in 1802, and to OJd. in 1803, aud  the price of mutton from 8Jd. in 1891  to 8d. in 1802, and to 7-Jd. in 1803.  In 1901���������the last year for which  returns are published���������-the prices were:  beef, Oid., and mutton 8d.  In this case the French consumer  has lost nothing at all by the duty:  and the amount received in respect of  the duty by the French government  is a clear gain to the community.  /NOTICE. )  Notice is hereby given tlrnt thirty (lays after  date I intend to apply to the Chief Commissioner  of Lauds and Works for a special licence to cut,  and carry away timber from the following de-1  scrilied lands situated on Adamslake in Lillooet  district, B.

After that first oriel' and disatrreA-  alilc. interview with Miss Mosryn,  Katharine had very fitllo to do with  llu* mist rcss i>f tire nail. l?*roin tho day  following tlarbnrn's return some  fresh guest or otner kept arriving,  and it wajt with a sigh of decided relief that Katharine saw her employer  s<������ occupied wilh these arrivals that  she had no time to waste in tyrannizing and insujlfug ihiKse ln hor power.  Katharine was not long in discovering that sho una red Lady Drum-  mond's dislike [or i model village  and estaljlishinonr. A.s far as the  surface went, iltrexlny and all appertaining toil was very well; but only  half an inch heneuin thai surface, and  what rots aiul barren places were to  l������a found!  (Katharine had not been an inmate  oi Hrcxley Hall mi-ec days beforo  she know that every domestic in tho  houso or estate held tlieir young mistress in -perfect detestation. In tho  village it wns  the same.  'Katharine's duties were not very  heavy so far. sue round that she  was expected to write all Aliss Mostyn's letters, dictated Co hor by Mrs.  ITrevanian, ana to sec that. Miss Mostyn's sleeping apartments and boudoir  .were kept well supplied with hot-  Jj-ouso flowers, arl trie latest jieriod-  icali-, and new txxjka. As far as companionship went, ene was never with  MTL-.s Mostyn, ana apparently she  had .been engaged to amuse Mrs. Trevanion, and Listen to her never ceasing flow of adulation about hor sweet  niece Barbara. Ot course, all this  might be ull erect alter the fete, but  'Katharine did not Know what to think  of Uio "future,   i  Miss Mostyn's birthday fell on a  Wednesday, and on the Monday afternoon, as Katharine sat answering  a batch ot letters that had come by  live middle-day post, Barbara entered  the library. She was dressed in a delicate pink muslin gown, and her  fingers glittered with rare diamonds  while a bangle of the same precious-  si ones  bung on her  right arm.  "Finish those letters quickly,  Brereton," sho said shortly. She never, by any chance, addressed oun  heroine except in the afoove curt  fashion, a habit Mrs. Trevanion had  soon adopted. "And then I want  you to go into the village to do some  commissions for me." Katharine put  down the pen and waited for further  aiders; her face was p rfectly cold  and quiet. Barbara 1 *nged to strike  the girl, or to rouse her into some  ebullition of wrath.* Why, sho could  not have aaid, except that sho dimly,  felt tho superiority of Katharine  over herself in every way. "On  second thoughts, you can go now,"  she said brusquely. "Aunt Mildred,  you must finish these letters; it will  take Brereton some time to g"t to the  village and back, and I want her in  the ball-room after dinner to* play  some waltzes for ns. You play, of  course?'' this sharply to Katharine,  who answered in  the affirmative.  Barbara frowned again. It she  could only find some excuse on  which to pin a lecture that, should  bring this young woman to hor bear-  in*gs I  fortune favored her.  !As Katharine rose, to her feet to  give up her pliico to Mrs. Trevanion,  Miss Mostyn drew a sharp breath,and  a disagreeable expression came into  her cold,   light  eyes.  "I wish to speak to yon aboirt your  dress,  too, Brereton," she said, in her  most   insolent  way,  "My   dress?"  'Katharine glanced down at the one  she was wearing; it was a dark red  cotton made by herself, and copied  from an old, quaint picture gown her  father had designed for her year?  ago. There was r'la'.ut.ely no "fault  to find with such a simple", gracefully-draped gown, except the tault ML?s  Mostyn found, namely, thnt she had  nothing so pretty i'n all hei expensive  wardrobe, and that, beside that tall  form, that, clear slcm, those wondrous  eyes shown to ma-velous advantage  by the deep red setting of the dress,  she   was absolutely nowhere.  "Yes, jour dress," said Barbara  angrily, "it is altogether too absurd  ^for-^*Y������>������dS,^-j5specia^  your position, ijr.-reton; you "v. iO~  oblige me by changing it at once lor  something differ it, and in futur.* jou  will wear a. gown that I will have  made for you.

Katharine was sii������nt.-for a mom nt,  then, an she m*"-v������d to the door, she  said   very   quietly:  "You shall have no reason fo rnm-  pla-im of my dress in future, Miss  Mostyn; although please Ict me assure you Ih't nothing will induce mc  to weeir any crown other than t.ho������" I  provide m}-������(*lf.

"f     have  I not.   finished with   he.r; she wa its     to  j In   I aught,   hor   proper   place,   and"���������  j with   a   viri-irs   clench    of    her   right  hand  ��������� "T Ihi.nfk T shall  knw how to  do    it.

Once out. of sight nf lire hall, Kalharine unfurled her umbrella nnrl (r.-ive  a deep sigh, while unerr.-isciniisly two  te.nrs  rolled down   her cheeks.  She fell, dinhenrteni'd, miservr liTc, ul-  Irirly lonely and fnr from string.  Tfer him"ness was fast gr������in;r, l,ui h.'r  foot and ankle were unploaxaritlv  feeble,  and  sbe dreaded   tho effect of  "Miss   Mostyn     takes     littlo   pains  to show her disliTfeo and antipathy  lo  me," she Ihr-ughi. bitterly us she walked on ut   as qui-.-k n paco as  she could  muster   up.       "What,   is   it,   1   wonder,  tlwit makes her hate me?

Sho   heaved  nmoihnr sigh.      "I am  afraid      that,  like   the   u.n'lucky   fish,   I  have  jump-  od from the frying- pan into the fire,"  she smiled  faintly  as she brushed u-  ���������wnj*   the   tears   from  her* eyes;  "  but  (here      is nothing  to ,do but  to bear  it for a time, unless it gets altogether /beyond mo.

Perhaps,"       Katharine  mused on wiih a shiver, "perhaps this  is   rm'y   punishment   for   sharing   Cordon's guilty secret,  for shielding him  from      the     just  punishment of   his  crime I  Have I  done wrong?*     Oh,  if  Heaven would but. send me ono word  of comfort  to hel# me iic|w| in      this  my   trouble I"        .  Katharine was very pale and worn  whon she reached the village, and she  .was thankful to o/ccept a chair at. the  door of one of the cottages, for'hor  a.okle was giving her such pain, she  ���������ho felt as Tf she would faint.  But courage was one of hei  stron.g characteristics, and notwithstanding hor fatigue and weakness,  Katharine, with many words of  thanks to thc kind- hearted woman  who had given her the chair,  moved on  to execute her orders.  One of these was to go to the station and inquire it some boxes had  arrived for Muss Mostyn. Barbara  might have spared lier companion this  unnecessary task, seeing that the  wagonette and dog- cart were lo  meet the express to bring bn.������jk some  fresh guests, but sho resolved to  crush down Katharine's proud, calm  boa ring, and it was a petty gratification to her to know that this girl  Was toilin-g to obey her behests Uke  any ordinary servant.  Th'e boxes had come, and Katharine  having given orders that they -should  be sent up to the hal.l at once, left  the booking and parcel office, and  went out of the station. The express  had arrived white shs had been making inquiries, and a group of laughing, chattering people were gathered  round the wagonette and dog- cart.  Katharine recognizing the hall carriages shrank back instinctively.and,  turning away, walked as quickly as  she could down tho road.  "I will .'.let them pass mo, and then  I will sit down and rest again," sho  said to _herself; "Miss Mostyn would  bo horrified if her* guests were to see  her companion actually silting i������  the road." '  The wagonette so-oii bowled along,  and the dog- cart followed, and Katharine was glancing about tor some  good resting- pince as the. carriage  .vanished in the distance, when a voice  behind her sent her heart leaping in  her throat, and ti ��������� quick blood mantling her pale cheek*!. The next moment Ormande had hold of both her  hands, and was .'-"hiking ihiiu wT'dly,  vigorously, a fact of which he himself was not. awa re. '  "Did 1 startle* you?" he asked hurriedly, seeing how white her 'checks  had grown a-rain. "I am sorry! I  knew iyou in a moment, but.

Katharine *br*t her pale lip; suddenly  she recalled with a rush of unconquerable agony the. time when she  had *met Craven Adair, the sense oC  trust and liking the poor boy had  awakened in her unsuspecting breast.  Ah', little did she thirrk that bygone  summer evening, ns she refused to  let him carry her bfcsket and walk into Ledstone with her, how the day  would come when she would have given v-ilmost her life itself to have seen  him standing before her as he stood  then��������� and now he was deadl She had  seen him killed, she had mado no effort to save him, sho had only consented to shield his murderer, nnd  beep him from his just reward.

"Por the poor boy is not. dead, Miss  Brereton,"  he went on quickly, care- j  fui   not   to   startle her   by  any  hint  or   allusion   yet   to   that   future.

Men there were,  certainly, fashionable society men,  but Lord Otway's harrd.-jome face was  not nrnong them, and in answer to  bee query whether any one had seen  anything of him. she had .been amazed, alarmed    and maddened    to hear  who had brought, him down to Brev-  loy, and not sho, Barbara, at all.  "Only let me find out," she snid to  horself.with a vicious,1 ugly look hf hor  face, that was growing uncomfortably  red, from the unusual exertion of  walkiug on a rough country road in  preposterously Iri-rh-heolod French  hoots. "Only lot me find out, and if I  do not give hor some, misery it will  not  bo my fault."  It took some little time, to reach  the lower gate, then all of a sudden  hor eyes fell on Katharine loaning  against tho tree in that attitude ot  weakness and despair, and Barbara  knew bettor than if any one had told  her Hint her rival was before, her.  Infuriated by anger and jealousy,  sho went up to the girl, and wo know  how and in what manner sho addressed Katharine tho quiet way in which  Katharine answered, and tho hiore  suggestion of IosIiik tlris rival now  Mint sho was in her powor rousod  all   llarbnra'S slyness and cunning.

What a clianco of revenge  was open to hor! Yes, but that chance  would be gono if Kiil.hnrinoi wero allowed to leave tho hall.  As Katharine ceasod and drew herself up proudly, utter offering her  resignation, Barbara was silent for  a 'moment, then in a. low, voico, as tf  ovorcomo witli emotion, sho suddenly said:��������� I  "���������No, no; I cannot let you gol I���������I  am sorry for wha,t, I havo said, Miss  Brereton." .Tlion, ns Katharine drew  back, almost too astonished for words,  she went on with an artful break In  her voice: '".Whut a imiseriible, awful  temper I have! Ah! seo what It is  to be alone in the world, with no  father or mother's hand to guide one;  always flattered and pam'pered for  the sake of my money; with not ono  single real friend to tell me my  faults and to help to crush them.

Miss Mostyn,"  she said gently, and with a weary  little sigh, "though your words pained   mo  di-'ply."  "Whati did I say?"' Barbara clasped her hand������ In mock dismay. "Ohl  I remember. Something about Lord  Otway,'wasn't itt Oh, we'll, I know  you will forgive that, loo. | I went  to 'meet Lord Otway, and whei* I saw  him: tallcing to you in the distance"���������  Barbara uttered this lie glibly ���������"it  made me get into onn) of my sad,  wlckgd tempers, you know," sho added, with a .well assumed air of frankness. "Dear Lord Otway is ono of  my very best friends, and you never  told Ime you were acquainted with  him, you funny childt"  "I did not think of it," Katharine  answered, simply, hor pride thawing  gradually beneath the warm, pleasant manner Barbara had adopted.  ".No, no, of courso not." Barbara  drew hor thin lips still lighter across  her white teeth, longing tb strike  this girl's face with any weapon that  would destroy its beauty utterly and  forever. '"���������Ihal was very natural,  and, of course, I twas just a lilllei surprised to see you together, but"���������she  paused, and then held out her hand  with a smile���������"but you must forget  all I thavc said lo you, Miss Brereton.

"If���������ah! then you relent, you forgive 'me?���������you will remain to be a  comfort, dear?" with another kiss;  "how can. I ithhrilc^ you?"'  Katharine looked bewildered for a  ���������moment; but quick to sympathize nnd  to receive sympathy, she flung her  arms about Barbara's tight -laced  figure.   ���������  "Love Ime!" she murmured, fervently, feeling that in her greatest hour  of tribulation this girl had come to  bo. a comfort to .her, to soothe her  .wretched, anguish-torn mind.

For everyone  that nsketh received!-, and he that scck-  eth findetli; and to him that l.nocketli  it thall be opened.���������St. Matthew, vii.���������  7. ���������������  ���������These words proclaim an unchangeable, universal, eternal law of the  kingdom of God. They arc not a threefold repetition of a single thought.  .They are rather nn announcement of  the three successive stages in the up-  ward progress of the one law of desiring and obtaining. These steps arc not  interchangeable. Seeking is not ask-  ing. Knocking is neither asking nor  seeking. Asking is,desire; seeking is  desire in action; knocking is active de-  ���������ire concentrated upon a definite purpose and plan.  The words of the text are, we believe, not the language of a "character" in fiction, but an utterance of  Christ Jesus., Two of their most impressive qualities are their unquestioning confidence and their unlimited  scope. There is no suggestion in them  of doubt of the reality of the law; no  hint of a limit to the law in time or in  space or in the nature of things. Ask,  ���������*��������� -seek, knock, at any time, anywhere and  for anything, and you shall receive,  you shaH find, it shall be opened to  you. Painful or pleasant, good, or  what is thought to be evil, what you  wish for, what you look for, what you  work for, you shall have.  The lesson of thc reality and the  universality of the iaw of desiring and  obtaining is hard to be learned. Like  other hard lessons ot human life, this  is to be learned only by experience.  Man gets opinion and belief from observation. Experience alone . brings  ���������knowledge. When one has seen the  fulfilment of a law of God's kingdom  in .his. own life, he knows tlrat thc law  is real. This is the foundation of his  ���������faith ,in the law and in the God ex-  pressed in the law. His faith, too, is  the real faith, whicli results from real  understanding, .which"'grows out" of  real knowledge acquired by niaii in his  own individual experience. No argument can shake such faith. No denial  can destroy it Once attained it is  immortal.  . It would seem that this kind of  knowledge was thc foundation of the  ���������faith of Jesus Christ in the reality and  the_ universality of" the divine law of  desiring and receiving. He believed  that the law was real arid unlimited because He saw and felt its .operation in  the concerns "of His own holy life. Hc  knew that what He asked was being  given to Him; that He was finding  ���������what He sought; that Yne doors at  which He knocked were opened to  Him. He lived to do good to others.  He desired, He attempted, He planned  to do good to them, and the sick were  made well, the lame walked, the blind  saw, the deaf heard, the dumb talked,  lepers were healed, the dead were raised and broken hearts were' mended.  How could He doubt the reality of the  law when the law was fulfilled in Himself? 'Flow could Hc question the universality of the law when He found  that^-whatsoever good He determined  to do, and whensoever and wheresoever He determined to do it. the good  wa������ done? This was actually receiving-* what He asked, finding what He  sought, the opening of the doors  through which He purposed to pass !  From. the point of view of human  experience -there was nothing peculiar  in' the earthly, existence of" Jesus  Christ. Tested at all points as all humanity is tested,-Jesus found what all  humanity, finds���������the* knowledge that  result! from" experience, the understanding that accompanies knowledge,  the power, the faith, the love that  come from understanding. ��������� He came  into this world a baby grpping after  power with almost aimless hands.. At  the. end bf His experience on earth He  went out from His cross the God-  man, endued with all power in earth  ~and"ih=Heaven^Because���������we^believe-=  that the. faith of Jesus in the reality  and the universality of the law. pf de**  siring and obtaining was an outgrowth  from His experience and that His experience was in no essential'particular peculiar to Himself we believe the  law to be as real for all as it was for  Him, as real for ourselves as it is for  all others. More.than this," we ourselves grow into actual faith in, the  reality of the law bccatisewe find it  fulfilled'in our own experience, whether in the good which we have desired to do or in the mistakes which  we have undoubtedly made. ^  Whatever we may be doing, therefore, wherever we may be doing it,  we will have faith that God gives to  those who ask and seek and knock,  and that if we desire them, and seek  them, and knock for them we shall receive, in due time, that is, in God's  good time, all good things*���������all : the  knowledge, all the understanding, all  the wisdom, all the power, all the  faith and all the love of which..hu*  inanity is capable!

This system of roadway construction has  been patented by Gilbert D. Wansbiougt  of London,   Eng.  Mootis Almanac and Canada.  Knowing .the   covert  belief   which   the  majority   of   mankind   places   in   soothsayers,   says  The  British  Canadian   Ke-  vlew, London, and that much confidence  Is placed In  Ure prognostications of Old  Moore's Almanac by thc lower classes in  this   country,   one   would almost   believe  that some 'cute official ot the Canadian  immigration  Department had  Interviewed  t.ie editor of this quaint publication, Feeing   that   tho   most   happy   anticipations  held out in tha corning year are nrainly  connected   with   Canada.      "Old   Moore*'*  tells   ub   tbat   at   the   commencement   of  the   year   "our  sister   colony   is   skating  with death on what looks like very thin  lee,"   but  we  are  glad   to" be   reassured  ���������the fair maiden will not full through,"  andjwe  are  greatly cheered  by  reading  "that VOld M6ore"-predicts-"a-ni6st"iiros-*  perous  future   for   this   grand  country."

In July we are told to expect  news from British Columbia "which will  bring  a   heavy   rush   of  miners   to   tliat  colony." As British  Columbia is a large  territory, lt ls perhaps a pity that "Uid  Moore"   could   not   luive   Indicated   more  nearly the location.   We wonder If he has  heard about the recent discovery ot rich  quartz In ths Lardeau district? In September we get  this cryptic  prophecy:  "The.  whole of the  empire will   huve  occasion  to rejoice on the receipt of some wonderfully good news which   will  come to us  by cable from Canada, business in many  quarters will Improve in consequence, and  tho increase of emigration to that colony  will be very marked." "Old Moore's prophecies"  may very  likely help  to swell  the tide of emigration to Canada, as this  penny   almanac   Is   widely   read   by   the  masses,  many of whom still believe    Iv  Mother Shlpton and others of that ilk.  The Necessity of Sh-crp Grit.  Many people hatch a number of fine  chickens, and these being t'_ grow and  look nice and healthy. Soon some ot  them begin lo droop and some die.  and these innocent people wonder what  the meaning of it all can be.  Thc secret is in the gradual exhaustion of the sharp grit iu the  ground on which the chicks are, running; consequently, as the failure of  this continues, thc powers of digestion  in thc chickens grow less and less,  until they die from' slice organic inability to digest their food so as to  get the nutriment -it contains.  Another thing must be borne in  mind by those who keep chickens in  confinement, and that is that fowls of  all kinds need a good amount of vegetable and green rood. The real reason for this may not strike poultry  keepers at first sight, but they will see  when we mention that the green food  does very much to purify the blood  that the health of the chickens must of  necessity be better when a plentiful  supply of green iood is given.���������Mark  Lane -Express.

"l-at and fertility are at'  the antipodes of each other,"* says thc'  author of "The Transmission of Life." j  When heifers are kept till they are !  two years of age before getting bred,'  they are quite apt to contract a fleshy ]  habit or tendency.   But, if the process :  of gestation is going on with them at i  the same time, it counteracts the flesh-  making  tendency, and establishes  the  milking temperament within them.    It  is  true that the    bad  results  of late  breeding in checking the milking ten*  idency are not nearly as apparent in thoroughbred dairy* cattle as they arle in  dual-purpose "or beef cattle.   The reason forthis is that the "dairy temperament" is more thoroughly established  in  them,  by long heredity in that  direction,  and    so j holds    them   more  steadily   to" the   central   purpose   for  which they  are  bred.    But there  is a  constant tendency to "reversion" in the  very best of families.  So if we keep alive ..and strong the  dairy temperament, we should start the  heifer in that road, as soon as she is  JS months of age. What we are after  in this matter of breeding dairy cattle  is to constantly establish and enlarge  the dairy individuality of our animals.  We like to feel that all our methods  of breeding, feeding and handling arc  doing their best to make of each heifer,  if possible, a little better cow fhan lier  mother. That is the road of dairy progress. Branching off from it and leading away from thc great central purpose are   other  paths,  such  ns   "dual  purpose," the "color craze,'*' Mid an uneconomic demand for "size," etc-  A  writer  in  The Jersey  Bulletin ot  July 29, speaking :n this question, says:  "Wc like them (the heifers) to drop  their calves at two years of age. Would  prefer    them    to    freshen    at ' twenty  months than to go over two years.

H. S.  Pearse, Dr. Horowitz, Dr. Ernst, Mr. Alfred Robbins; Dr.  Hobertson   Nicoll,    and     Mr.     Frederick  (Jreenwobd,   have   lectured   to   the   stu-  .dents  on  war,   foreign  iind  "London correspondence,   reviewing and   "the   higher  aspects of journalism." Finally the scholars have produced, with the veriest modicum of supervision on the part of the director,  a full-sized newspaper,   No. 5  of  The Steevens Gazette, which,  if It were  not priced  at  half  a  crown,   might   enjoy a large circulation.   Perhaps the best  test of   the   training  the students   have  enjoyed  Is   that   already   three  of  them  are engaged In actual Journalistic work.  The experiment Is to run for a period of  three years,  and  already Mr.  Hill Is so  satisfied  with   its  success  that  Ire   con-  lidently looks forward to a.

On. a recent morning, at the  Liverpool. Central Police Court, the  charges of drunkenness numbered eighty-  one in a list of about 100 prisoners, and  of this number ten were young women.  On a previous Monday In July there were  seventy-seven crrarges of drunkenness,  forty-one being against females and thirty-six against males. Included in the  former ware ten young persons of twcnly-  orre years of age nnd under. In June  last no fewer than thirty-one women were  convicted in the l/iverpuol Third Court for  being Intoxicate,1 while In charge of children under sev .1 years of age. "I have  seen a woman In the dock," says Councillor Leo, "who had been found lying  in nn Intoxicated condition la the open  street, with her baby, fourteen days oM.  by her side. Another woman, in a similar condition, was found carrying her  child by one leg. head downwards; another hnd llurrg Imr child at a policeman  several yards away."

When to Breed Heifers.  With those who value size principally  in their cows, the theory and practice  are not to breed until tlie heifer is 20  or 24 months old. There is no doubt  that the heifer will make a larger  growth under ordinary treatment if  bred at such age, but there is danger in  this method, in our estimation, of promoting a beefy tendency in the heifer.  With dairy cattle the main purpose is  to promote as much as possible a predisposition to milk-giving. For this  purpose we breed for milk, feed for  milk, and in the care and handling we  give the animal we endeavor to promote the_ milk-giving function all we  can, consistent with health and constitution. It has been nortced by close  observers that if heifers, or cows even,  become too fleshy, they are apt to fail  in breeding, or if they do conceive and  have a calf, there occurs, somehow, I  & "-nit back" to their full and free miUc-  nalism, and has promised another ������200,-  DOO in three years' time should the scheme  prove *.;u-ceHSful, naturally directs attention to an experiment on a" more modest scale which has for nearly a year  been carried orr at the City of London  School. 6tiys Tlie London Dally Chronicle, it was the outcome of a conversation bctwoen Mr. William Hill, a distinguished journalist,- who has since directed the class, and a gentleman of  wealth keenly interested in the future  of journalism,'who agreed to Iind the  funds for tho enterprise. This Included  a "George Steevens Scholarship" cf ������100,  to be awarded each year to the most pro-  inlslng student, who will thus be enabled to make a tour-of the world. The  invitation to tho boys ,of the seiiool to  Join the classes resulted in the enrolment of ten, and one of these by the end  of next month will, as the result of the  -examination lately held, be in a position  to start on his travels. All working Jcur-  Tiallsts are agreed that it is as hopelsas  to try to teach journalism in theory and  by lectures ils to learn swimming on dry  land. Nobody appreciates this more thnn  Mr. Hill, and his training has" been a judicious blend of theory nnd practice,  -which, only in this particular let It bo  --raid, suggests Mr. Sdueers. It will be  remembered that Mr.*Saucers in c-xi.lKjn-  ing his system to Nicholas Nlckleby, said  to a trembling urchin, "Win-der���������window,  now go and clean the windows." In like  manner the studerrts In the Journalistic  class at tho City of London School, having had reporting and sub-editing and  Interviewing spelled to them, go and do  them, and have thus, even 01 .1 brief  tlmo, learnt moro of tho calling than  years of mere class teaching coiod have  given them.

Most  of that which has been used for experiment camo from a mine In Bohemia. It  Is found also In Saxony, ln Cornwall and  tn Colorado. The dirantlty already found  Is so small that thc llgurutive price of a  gram has been placed at $10,000. It may  be that there arc largo quantities of lt  stored under tho surface somewhere, but  the man who found a (luantity of ll In a  Btato of anything like purity would probably not live to tell the tale. The par-  tlclea which fly from it arc charged with  electricity, and at night lt shines forth  with a phosphorescence which has been  shining since the beginning ot all things,  and which will go on shining"'until tlio  final extinction of all matter. A small  quantity of It In the possession of M.  Curio has caused the most painful blisters  when brought in contact with the skin.  A small particle of radium salt vas sealed in a glass tube, placed in a pasteboard  box and tied to Prof. Curie's sleeve for  an hour and a half. It produced a suppurating sore which did not heal for over  three months. Prof. Curie thinks that a  person entering a room containing a  pound of radium would be blinded. Judging by what Is experienced with a. grain  of It a pound would exhibit all the pro-,  parties of the sun condensed into small!  space. No, he would not be lucky wbr  found a pound of radium.

Return Engagement��� Initial

vfrent splendidly.
The return engagement of Harold
.Nelson and his company was equally
as successful as their former visit, and
all three performances were of a high
elm racier. Friday evening's bill, l.yt-
ton's well known romantic drama,
"Richelieu," was remarkable for splendid scenery. The perspective ellVcls
iir the cardinal's palace, and the garden and King's elinnrlie.r of the Louvre
were particularly good. Both Mi-.
Nelson arrd Mr1. JSruce showed greater
depth of interpretation than during
llieir visit last spring and the drama
certainly was worthy, both in performance, costume aud scenic ell'ecls, of the
master band that.wrote it.
The double billon Satin-day evening,
T. Jl. Aldrich's comedietta "'-A Set of
Turquoise" and Shakespeare's immortal ���'Taming of the Shrew" met Hie
sympathy of the audience more than
airy other plays given by the company
and both received irrost hearty applause. The latter elicited shouts of
laughter in which the company, on
marry occlusions, were compelled to
join. Mr. Nelson, as Peti-uchio, disclosed a vein of humour that was
unsuspected by most of his auditors
and the rollicking comedy went with
the utmost vim.

11AK0LD NELSON   us   David Garrick.
A comedy of this description requires
clear cut character acting on the part
of all the. performers and, for a. first
night, this was most apparent. The
[ plot of the play is simple in character.
David Garrick, the actor, is in love
with Ada Ingot, believing her to be a
lady of noble birth. Simon, Ada's
father, has discovered her passion for
Garrick but dreams not that it is
returned. He approaches the actor
and asks that something be done to
.���pro-vent affairs going further. not
realizing that. :i mummer can be a gentleman as well. Garrick is invited to
dinner- and appeals in ri state of
feigned intoxication only to find out
that the woman he is to disgust is the
woman ho loves. However, the deception is continued and Ada turns for
the lime being against hint until her
cousin. Squire Chivy, who has dined
not wisely but too well, in his ignorance discovers the plot to Ada. This
is practically the theme of the comedy
and. a.s usual, all ends well in the last
act.
For Mr. Nelson's performance in tlie
title role we have nothing but. praise.
The vivid contiast between the gerrtle [
bearing of the refined tragedian and
the puree proud pomposity of ' he
vulgar merchants was beautifully
brought out. In the second act. when
he feigned intoxication, the feeling of
remorse was continually apparent,
and, when for a minute he became hi.s
real self wrrilt** alone with Ada, to
resume hi.s feigning when the others
returned. Mi-.Xelson showed a depth of
interpretation, equalling, if not surpassing his favorite roles of Hamlet
and Richelieu.
The Simon. Ingot of JMr. Bruce was
a clever bit of character acting and
showed him in an entirely new light.
In halting step, voice and gesture, he
was the anxious father to tiie life and
gave a .'characterization that showed
careful study and conscientious work.
Florence .MoLeay'.-** Ada Ingot was
equal to her Portia, which is sa.ying
miicliT In the third scene, at Garrick's
house, she was probably at ber best,
and throughout displayed a recongiii-
tion of the possibilities of the part.
Squirt; Chivy, as rendered by Fred
Roland, was also good, irr fact, the
whole cast wa.s most satisfactory. A
word must be said in commendation of

only large source of revenue should be
the taxation of land values and, after
all sides of the question had beerr
thrashed out.it was moved by J. B.
Ilobson, seconded by Leslie Hill, and
carried unanimously:'
"In view of the" embarrassed state
of the finances of the Province, and
the objections which have been raised
upon this ground towards measures
for the relief of the mining industry,
and tbe fact that all deirrauds for such
relief during the past two years have
been met by a counter demand on the
part of the Government then in power
for a substitute whereby the revenues
of the Province would not suifer loss:
'���Be it therefore resolved that this
association desires to re-assert that it
has no wish to be relieved at Ihe
experrse of other industries, but. on
the contrary is now. and has always
been, ready to pay its fair and equitable share of the taxation necessary
for Hie ecoiio-nioal and businesslike
conduct, of Provincial affairs.
"In the opinion of this association,
natural resources of the Province and
not industry should bear the chief
burden of taxarion. Tbe enormous
aivas of valuable land now held under
a taxation which ls practically insignificant shauld be made to pay Us
proper share of the burden and thus
relieve industry.
"The association therefore respectfully commends to the Government.,
the advisability of enquiring into and
adopting the. Australasian or' some
other equitable and uniform system tf
taxation on land, including mining
lands, that will tend ,*.to increase the
revenue, foster the settlement of the
lands of the -Province,.and'encourage'
the development of its great mineral
and other resources.
"In view of the vast areas of land
held in this Province, it is believed
that the revenues from such a system
of t-ixation will more than meet the
annual deficit of the Province, and
will enable it to materially relieve the
mining industry."
Tha only other resolution of particular interest was passed on Thursday morning on motion of Mi'. A. E.
Howse, of Nicola, seconded by J, B.
Ilobson, of Cariboo, reading as follows:
"Whereas there has long been an
increasing dissatisfaction with the
relrtion of the Provincial Bureau of
Mines to the mining industry, the
complaints most prevalent being to
the effect that the conditions and
resources of various districts have riot
been fairly or properly presented, and
that all efforts made hitherto by mining men towards Hie betterment of
mining." conditions have met with
I opposition, instead of assistance from
tins office, and that moreover, it is
complained that the work of the
Bureau lias apparently been restricted
to the collection of statistics, while tlie
industry has nol received that assistance iu the way of expert scientific
study and reports on mineral districts
which was expected from Hie oflice,
and which wns the main object of its
creation, and set out iu Section 7 of
the Bureau of Mines Act, ISO";
"And whereas it appears to this
Association that the co-operation
which should exist betweon the Bureau
and the mining conriiiiiuily is now
entirely wanting, and Hint'the main
object of its creation has been thus
defeated:
"Be it therefore resolved that in thc
opinion of this Association a radical
change should be effected in the constitution and conduct of the said
Bureau.''
On Thursday afternoon a discussion
was had as to amending the Water1
Clauses Act irr the direction of giving
free water to the placer miner and the
committee concluded its deliberations
by a vote of thanks to the Mayor' arrd
others who had hospitably entertained
them while in Kamloops.

Of the Provincial Mining Association at Kamloops result in
Recommendations of Drastic
Character.
The meeting of the executive of the
Provincial Mining Association, held in
Kamloops last week was well attended
and several intere.stirigdi.sr-tr.ssions took
place. President Keen occupied the
chair and this city wa.s represented by
Mv. XV. M. Brown.
Tuesday's sessions were largely devoted t.o the financial condition of the
association and it was decided to have
the president issue a circular to all the
local branches requesting that the
assessment authorized hy tho constitution be paid. It was also decided
to hold the annual convention in Victoria on February 22ud, 1001, itt which
the (piesliorr of incorporating the
association will be discussed and n
private bill introduced in I hu House* il
this step is decided upon.
On Wednesday thi! morning was
taken rip with internal affairs of the
society but f-he afternoon session was
particularly interesting. The only
subject approached was the llrrarreial
condition of the province and nearly
everyone present took part in the discussion. It seemed to he, the opinion
