(Special to The Herald )  Ferguson, Oct. 20���������While not much  is reaching the outside regarding the  mines in this vicinity all'the important  *=-propertiesarebeingsteadily-devclopetl.:  The Triune has been working all slimmer, and the operators, the Metropolitan Gold Mining Company, are so  pleased with the outlook tbat they  will, for the first time, continue working all winter. Several hundred feet  of tunneling have been contracted for  and the new stoping- ground provided  will enable very large shipments to bo  made next season. Progress has boon  made with the tramway ,and the management expect to have it in good  working order ^so as to handle the  output as soon as spring opens up. A  lot of flne ore is oh the dump and it is  very probable some shipments will be  made over the snow.  The Silver Cup Mines, Ltd., has done  extensive -work on its well known  property this*'season and shipments  will shortly be made over the new  trams to the compressor at Five-mile.  A very large amount of machinery  has ibeen installed during the past  summer  and   money' has been spent  ' wherever it could be used profitably to  improve the mine and equipment.  When tbe compressor gets to work it  is confidently expected that large  profits will be derived. The management has taken the wise course of  thoroughly developing the mine befoi e  commencing to earn dividends and its  success is now assured.  PROGRESS AT  POPLAR CREEK  The annual meeting of the Talent  Society of St. Peter's Church was hold  at the rectory on Thursday. The following officers were elected for the  ensuing year: Mrs. Spurling, president; Mrs. Paget, vice-president, and  Mrs. Burridge, secretary-treasurer.  Mines Showing up Splendidly  as Developed���������Building Operations Active���������Streets Graded  and Stumped.  (Special to The Herald.)  , Poplar, Oct. 20.���������As work proceeds  oh the various rich'showings, here the  owners are becoming moie satisfied as  to the permanence of-the gold-deposits."  On the Lucky Jack the tunnel is now  in some 160 feet and every foot made  adds to the value of the mine. The  same with the Swede Group, the Gold  Park, Ophir, Telluride and others.  Alex. Lucas, mining recorder at Kaslo,  who was here temporarily has returned home, his place being taken by  John Simpson, who hns been appointed  deputy mining recorder and provincial constable.  As for the town, it is progressing  rapidly. Contractor Spiers has completed the stumping and grading of  the streets. There is a movement on  foot for immediate incorporation and  acquisition by the citizens of electric  light and water works facilities. Property owners have decided not to be  at the mercy of any company for  these utilities.  . Visitors are much surprised at the  building already done. There is ample  accommodation for travellers as there  are six hotels having from 14 to 20  rooms in connection.- Several residences are in course of construction,  those for J. Y. Cole, Magnusson Bros.,  J. J. Casey and O. Schultz having  been completed. Nearly a dozen provision men are open for business and  there are, in addition, the usual mining brokers, an assay ofllce, livery  stable and hardware store. Taken  altogether Poplar is doiug very well.  Next spring will see a big boom here  with enormous froe gold exposures to  warrant it.  CONSOLATION  PROVES RICH  The Conservatives of Yale-Carllroo  hold a convention this evening to  nominate a candidate in the forthcoming Dominion elections.  Well Known Blue Auriferous  Clay Located on French  Creek���������To be Operated all  Winter  The result of operations during the  summer' on the old Consolation claim,  French creek, has been more than  satisfactory. This leasehold, which is  held by Mv. E. A. Bradley, is a drifting proposition and hns been opened  up in a most systematic manner. A  shaft was sunk Hint, at a depth of 82  feet, reached bed rock where drifting  was commenced. A tunnel wns then  run a distance of 00 feet when the rim  of the old channel wns located. After  sinking on the chair nei a shortdistance  a vein of blue auriferous clay was  struck, carrying gold to the value of  Sji'i-5 to $50 per square yard. This  deposit has been carefully compared  with the blue clay of Williams nnd  Lightning creeks and found to be  perfectly identical. It is also similar  in clurracter to the famous blue lend of  California. The rich dirt is carried  from the face by bucket ears to the  shaft where they are attached to a  water power hoist and, upon reaching  the surface, dumped into the dump  box. The water from the power  wheel is then utilized and the pay dirt  taken from the dump box and sluiced  in the usual manner. All th" preliminary work has been done and the past  week was devoted to building a new  camp for winter operations. This consists of sleeping houses, mess house,  store room mid office, and has just  heen completed. <*  lt is Mi-. Bradley's intentiou to keep  a force of 14 men at work all winter  and for that purpose 8 tons of supplies  are now on the ground. The property  is in good shape and'can-easily be  worked all. the year round. This is  where the Big Bend has its great  advantage over Cariboo, in which district, even at the best of times,* operations can only be carried on for six or  seven months annually. There is also  no shortage of water such as handicapped the older district for the last 2  or 3 years.  It may be mentioned that Mr.  Frank H. Guffey, the well, known  attorney and mining man of Pittsburg, Pa., visited the property recently on his way home from Nome and  expressed himself as more than surprised with the good showings. The  statement that the pay dirt runs from  $35 to $50 in gold may appear exaggerated but it must be remembered that  until the old channel is reached the  deposit is practically barren. The gold  is coarse and well washed thus proving  that it is an ancient river bed. This  makes the probability of rich returns  more certain than would be the case,  had the auriferous deposit been angular in character.  The  success   that   has   met    these  operations^shows  cojiclusjyely    that  RETALLACK  in question.     The proper timo to in-1 n������|f G������ M ft C d 11  vestigatc   this   matter  and act on it   ft t V EaNutalUL  was in 1002, not after a geneinl election and with another Government in  power. As to the vacancies, however-,  I still adhere to the prediction that, if  seats are not found for Messrs. Mc-  Phillipis and Goodeve, Hon. Charles  Wilson will become Attorney-General,  Taylor or Ellison, Provincial Secretary and Gilford or Pooley, Speaker.  The statement that tho Canadian  Bank of Commerce has stopped supplies is also false. Cheques are issued  in the usual manner and promptly  paid on   presentation.     Those   in the  know laugh at the asserted stringency  especially as the Goveinmentreceived,  only recently, over $280,000 from the  Dominion   as   our   proportion of   the  Chinese entry tax.  The  Premier  has  quite   recovered  from his recent indisposition and has  been   at  his   office   for thc pnst four  days.     Col.   Wolfendcn,    the King's  Printer,   completed . his  *10th   year of  service in  that capacity on Monday  nnd   the   employees' of  the Printing  Department   presented   him   with an  address and a splendid watch to mark  tire occasion.  The  petition   against tho return of  Mi'.  C.  E.   Pooley for Esquinialt was  filed in the Supreme Court yesterday.  It is made by A. E: Wale.     The usual  charges are laid.  Ontario Bye Elections  Toronto, Oct. 27.���������To-day's bye  elections for the Ontario Legislature,  leave the parties in just the same  position as before. ' '  Sault Ste. Marie, formerly Canser-  vntive, has returned Mr. Smith, Liberal, by about 100 majority, with the  Michipicoten poll to hear from.  Muskoka, formerly Liberal, will probably elect Mr. Mahaffy, Conservative,  by a small majority; be has 78 lead  now, with 18 polls to hear from.  EVA POUNDING  OUT BULLION  Causes the Discharge of Ferguson's Postmaster Owing to  Election of Hon R F Green  ���������Miners Indignant.  (Special to The Herald.)  Ferguson, B. C, Oct. 25.���������As soon  as the result of the election became  known Geo. B. Batho, who has been  postmaster here since the office was  opened in 1808, wa.s informed by Inspector Dorman that his services were  no longer required. No reason was  given for his dismissal and the only  known cause is an alleged statement  by J. E. Betallack, tho defeated Liberal candidate, that if he was beaten |  Batho would have to go.  This action has caused great indignation*'not only here but in all the  surrounding camps. Mr. Batho has  proved himself a competent official  and is well liked and respected. Not a  single complaint has been made  against his conduct of the office. Thc  postmastership was tendered to J. L.  McKinnon, a staunch Liberal, but  refused owing to the treatment given  Mr. Batno.  4* ^t lat iTi ITI BTI 1*1*1 1*1*1 l*Tl 1*1*1 l*t*l rTl 1*1*1 t**** ****-* ***** .****. .*T***.

Victoria Budget  (From Onr Own Correspondent.)  Victoria, B. C, Oct. 28.���������-You may  take it for granted that it is unlikely  anything will be done towards filling  the vacancies in the Cabinet for some  time yet. The statement that John  Houston was recommended for a portfolio and refused by the Lieutenant-  Governor is correct. The reason for  this unusual course is an incident that  occurred in the Legislature during the  session of 1902. The Government was,  by the absence of one or two members,  in a decided minority and Houston  acted as a stop gap from four till six  o'clock. He defied the Speaker, defied  the House, and, in addition used insulting language to the chair. The  matter was taken up by motion a day  or so after, the Opposition moving a  resolution that it was advisable to protect the Speaker. The motion was  voted down and the matter was supposed to be dead. However, tbe TLieu-  tenant*-Governor, who retained the  Dunsmuir Government that was responsible for this insult to the chair,  has at last repented, aiid now refuses  to accept as a member of the Cabinet  the man who, acting under instructions from a former Government that  had  his   confidence, caused  the scene'  Stamp Mill Now Working and  . Estimated October. Clean Up  $20.000���������Oyster-Criterion will  Start up Soon.  (Special to thc Herald.)  Camborne, B. C, Oct. 27.���������Lexington mountain promises to be the scene  of much mining activity the coming  winter by many claim owners who  have been closely watching the progress of the Evil and Oyster-Criterion.  The Eva mill has now been running  over 10 days and it is certainly piling  up bullion. From tbe daily run it is  conservative to estimate that the  clean-up for the month will not he far  from .$20,000. The 10 stamps are  pounding out an average of 32vtons  per day.  At the Great Northern's property���������  the Oyster-Criterion��������� everything is  *being*puti=in^readiness=for-=;aniactive  winter season's work at the mine.  The 10-stamp mill has long been completed but the management has bee'n  forced to await the receipt of a car of  .water-piping that has tied operations  up at the mill for the past six weeks.  Meanwhile at the mine a new crosscut  tunnel, to bo known as the Terminal  tunnel, has been started, just above  the terminal of the aerial tramway.  Superintendent Lade figures that it  will be 400 feet before the quartz is  reached. This will give a depth of  approximately 400 feet on the vein.  The upper workings are all in good  shape to start stoping and the ore in  the bin and on the several dumps will  be sufficient to last the mill'many  weeks. When the lower tunnel is  completed raises will be made to connect with the upper workings.  The Camborne .Water Works Co. is  laying the mains for a water-works  service. Most of the trenches have  been dug and -the 'work should be  completed before the snow flies.  This Morning's Despatches  Liverpool, Oct. 28.��������� Mr. Chamber-  Iain was the guest at the Lord Mayors  luncheon today and was afterwards  presented with an address by the  AVorkinemcn Conssrvative Association. Speaking at the luncheon he  declared that as the United States had  failed to meet Great Britain regarding  the tariff, the latter will be forced to  retaliate by placing, duty on their  goods.  London, Oct. 28.���������Speaking at Dover  tonight. Mr. "Wyndham, Chief Secre-'  tary ��������� for Ireland, said that unless  England was prepared to lose -her  prestige she could. not afford to see  Canada dominated by American capital. Canada must be linked with the  Empire whether it was done by  Chamberlain's method or by some  other.  Rome, Oct. 2S.���������The Italian finances  show a surplus of $13,000,000.  Washington, Oct. 27.���������U. S. Ambassador Clayton, at Mexico City, has  wired his government that the reported  attempt to assassinate President Diaz,  was without foundation.  L. O. L.

LEGISLATORS  CLOSE SHOP  Wedding Bells.  On Tuesday morning at the Roman  Catholic church the wedding was  solemnized of Louis J. Ball, manager  of the Vernon "News" and Miss Mary  Happey, late of Toronto. After the  ceremony a recherche breakfast was  given at the Hotel Revelstoke, among  the invited guests being Mr. and Mrs.  JD. McCarthy and Miss Darragh.  The Herald extends hearty felicitations to Bro. and Mrs. Ball and  hopes for them a long and happy  married life.  Dominion Parliament Prorogued  on Saturday���������Cabinet Recon-  struction���������Minto to be Appointed Viceroy of India.  (From Our Own CorreapnrKlent.)  Ottawa, Oct. 24.���������The House was  prorogued at 11 a.m. today when the  Governor-General delivered the usual  speech from the Throne. There was  nothing particular mentioned in it  and most of the legislators had left.  Yesterday R. G. Macpherson delivered a spread eagle speech about the  Alaskan award and a government  railway to the Yukon but it only had  a political significance.  The Dominion cabinet will be reorganized at once. From what I can  hear H. R. Emmerson, M.P., lately  Premier of New Brunswick, will get  the Marine and Fisheries portfolio,  Hon. J. R. Prefontaine going to the  Public Works and Hon. James Sutherland taking Fielding's late department, that of Railways and Canals.  It is reported that, at the conclusion  of his term in Canada, JLord Minto  will succeed Lord Curzon as Viceroy  of India.  Granite and White Enamelled  Ware-  Mill and Builders' Hardware.

Can we truly believe in all Gil'*-,  blessings, in the groat truths which  affect our eternal welfare, and not rejoice?  There can be no cold, unfeeling belief in God's great truths. They arc  too vital, too essential, and if they do  not make us happy, then our faith is  r.s nothing. Relieve in the truth. Yes,  but hclicving, we must rejoice with  joy unspeakable.  Proscribed Races.  the dreadful truth is realized, and iho  pent-up agony *,-ives way to a flood of  tears. Here '������������������'���������' ���������.������������������-���������d we have truth that  may not be r< Juiced over.  But, on the other hand,    the    news  of a certain fact  may bring with it a  world of joy.    The lost may be found.  . The son who had wandered away from  his home and  loving family, and who  had spent his youth in riotous living,  returns  at  last.    His   father runs    to  meet him, he recognizes him,  and his  .heart goes  cut  to  the son  who  was  e'ead and is .dive again, and was lost  end is for,;:;.    What a happy moment  was that in the- life of the aged   patriarch  Jacob  when  his sons  returned  from Egypt with the news, "Joseph is  yet  alive."  At  first  he could  not  believe, but when they had told him all  lheir tale,  and  showed him  the waggons  which Joseph  had sent to carry  him,   the  spirit  of.  Jacob,     their    father,  revived,  aud  Israel  said:   "It  is  enough; Joseph, my son, is yet alive.  I  will go and see him before I  die."  .Yes,  it  i** indeed joy to be convinced  of truth like this.  All these events, whicli afreet more  or less our human life, are of .-little  consequence, however, compared with  the greater truths concerning the uni-  .ve'rse and God himself. Under (he  former head we" may consider sci"*u-  tific truths���������truths which men have  discovered and proved by profound  study and research. They are the revelations of things which God meant  its to know. JN\*iv facts are being discovered every day in the world pl  science, and in regard to .these things  Took a Long Time.  When George Ade went from Ilie  literary field of Lafayette. Indiana,  says The Reader, lo trend thc primrose path of dalliance wilh all s.i-is  of things on the staff of Tho Chicago  Record, he met a native lady writer  of that town of l'icrian Springs and  Olympian heights. Sh..*. wasn't ks  young ns-slic used to he, hut she wa*  quite as pretty as she had ever heen,  and her devotion to .Mr. Ade as a present help in every lime of trouble--  her troubles���������was pathetic. lie wis  a good thing at first, voluntarily, he-  cause he wanted to help struggling genius, but the lady was so persistent that  she became a nuisance, and .Mr. Ade,  in his cft'orts lo break away, at times  became actually rude.  One day he went cheerfully to liis  desk, for he had not seen her in a long  long time, and the hope that she had  gone to a better world above made  him resigned, if not really and truly  happy. But it was not to be. He  found her waiting for liim. She  greeted him effusively, and he didn't  reciprocate, but he had to be polite,  and ask her where she had been all  this time.  "Why, don't you know?" she said.  "I had a fever for three weeks, and it  has taken mc six weeks to get on my  feet."  "Sire weeks!" exclaimed Mr. Ade  in surprise.  "Yes, indeed; six whole weeks."  "Well," he responded, as if thoroughly convinced. "I have always heard  that Chicago women had large feet.  but I didn't suppose they were quite  so large  as that."  Theodore  YVatts-Dunton,   In  an  article  In   Tho   London   Star   dealing  with   the  "Proscribed    Races."    says :���������Some   few  mon seem  to be  drawn instinctively toward  tlio proscribed races of the world.

For the Farmer.  it is our duty to receive them when we  ���������  'ire convinced of tlieir truth.  Eut belief is one thing, and rejoicing  in what  we  believe  is  altogether  another.    A: scientist, a bacteriologist, a  .student1 of disease  germs, is  studying  some  painful  and   contagious  disease.  He thinks to himself,  "Now,  this disease must b*. propagated by some kind  -of germ..    Let nre try to discover the  presence  of such."    With great pains  -���������-*.<; analyses ci-.���������ry'tliing which may be  the lurking place ui such germs as he  :supposes exist.     At last he is rewarded by finding the cause of the trouble,  nnd  perhaps also  discovers some way  i-\ extermir.-.ting the bacteria.    He has  "'.Tiscovered .!;-��������� truth.

"Tlris is the Hist time for mujjy  years that such a subject has beerr permitted to be mentioned locally.

Thousandi of tons of grass (and  even weeds) go to waste annually  along the roadside which might be easily nt ilized. A farmer lately made a  few movable hurdles, in which he placed sheep, and pastured them along  the road, the farm fence forming one  side of the hurdle. The hurdles were  moved forward daily, ami the result  was that the roadside was cleaned oif  wherever the sheep were hurdled, while  quite an amount of mutton was secured  at a trilling cost.

Sir Hartley  Williams, tho retiring senior Judge of  Victoria, hus been subject to such a retrospect. One of tbe tirst cases Ire had  to try was a very rare offence indeed-  stealing- a steamship. A couple of audacious scoundrels named Henderson and  AVallace stole a steamer from the Clyde,  disguised her very skilfully, and went  on a pleasure cruise around the world.  At Melbourne, where thoy posed as scions  of English nobility, and received much  social attention, the fraud was detected.  They were arrested, convicted, and sentenced to long terms of Imprisonment.  Stealing a ship Is like stealing an elephant, a very unprovable form or crime.

The subject  of  manures  is  perhaps  the most touchy one in the whole category  of  the   good   old-fashioned  farmer's principles and practices.    Here  he feels master of the argument.    He  is   standing  up  for  an   old   friend,  a  faithful   servr.iit  of  the  family���������something that has done good work in his  day, and in the days of his father and  grandfather.     It is the hardest worker  on  the  farm;  its  work  is   not  done,  says he, in one year; you can see it  the next year, and the next.    The farmer does not attempt to explain this  apparently permanent  benefit,   nor   to  understand it in so far as it is so. Nor  does   he   discriminate     much   between  manures  and  manures,   good,  bad  or  poor; nor does he calculate the money  value of this manure, unless he    have  need to buy it, and then he often calculates   long  and   earnestly,   and   fails  to  buy.    Nor  docs  he  oiten  think it  worth while to  give  attention  to this  faithful   servant   until   he;is   ready   to  plow  it into  the  ground.    It may  lie  in  his   barnyard   and   leach   away,   or  burn;  a  passing  brook  may   flood  it  and  wash  tlie life  out  of it;   still, it  is  his   old  faithful  and   true   standby.  If it fails to stand by him, something  else receives the blame.     The season  or  the  soil  is   at  fault,   but  barnyard  manure  is  infallible.  Now, if thc good old-fashioned farmer knew the full and true value of  this friend���������barnyard manure���������ha  would guard it as tne apple of his eye,  and use it as carefully as gold dust.  He would build a wall around it and a  roof over it, would preserve it from  flood and fire, and in the end old  barnyard manure would do itself more  than old-time credit in the work for  which it was created.  Now, let us consider a few things  in regard to these barnyard manures.  First, there is quite a range in their  chemical (food) composition and value.  Manures of highly-fed animals are different in value from those of low-fed  animals���������those of fattening from those  oi milking animals. Manures composted with leaves, cornstalks, tobacco  stems, etc., have the added value of  the composting material, while those  the sun and rain keep  first  Mr. McDonnell Bodkin, K.C, tells somo  flne stories of the Irish judiciary In his  recent book on the "Dlvarslons" of tho  Irish law court. Of nn omlnent Judge  he says :���������Ho was an Irishman nnd a  Comiuught man to Ills (liiger-llps���������with n  western brogue which, lo use his own  expression, you could "hung your leu  on."

"Throw your bn>*.:u.*.  my Lord," retorted Father Healy,  promptly.  Fortunately for tho fun or Hie world,  the advlee was not taken. Tho broad  brogue was part ot tin* man's self.

That tho'humor of tho Bench and Bar  ls still alive, let one or two stories of  living personages prove. An eminent living leader of tho Bar. as eloquent and  powerful an advocate as ever addressed a  jury, has a perplexing habit of confusing  the Christian names of the parties to n  case. Ho got mixed irp badly ln his  speech for the plain tin* In a recent case of  "Brown v. Robinson." The Judge bore  it for some time with exemplary patience.  At last he interru: ted :���������  "Mr. Attorney," he said, "will you pardon me for one moment? So long ns you  persistently ana consistently called tho  plaintiff Brown by the nnmo of the defendant Robinson, nnd defendant Robinson by the name of the plaintiff Brown,  the court could contrive to follow your  speech; but when you Introduce a third  party���������by the name of Jones���������without explaining whether you Intend him to represent Ihe plaintiff Brown or the detend-  Ant Robinson, some difiiculty arises."  Just an illustration or two of modern  Irish Judicial politeness, and I have done.  Two criminals were recently convicted of  an atrocious offfc,._o. Tho Judge proceeded to pass sentence. "Tho prisoner  Moriarity," he said, "is the more guilty  of the two. "'Which of these two men Is  Morlarity?"  "I'm Moriarity," me Lord, cried an Insinuating voice from  tbo dock.  "Thank you, Moriarity." replied the  courteous Judge, "twenty years' penal  servitude, Moriarity."  Anothei* old offender was moro fortunate  in a recent case. Tho jury acriuilted him  In the teeth of Ihe plainest evidence.  They sat abashed when the Judge hnd  rend aloud a yard long list of previous  convictions for similar' offences. "13ut,"  iris Lordship concluded, gravely, "the jury  have In tl.eir wisdom acquitted you of the  crime for whicli you were here tried.

Twenty  loads"  oi barnyard manure at a value of $30  would furnish somewhat less food, but  produce about tire same yield of corn  as  650 pounds  of plant   iood,  costing  $12, in a high-grade commercial fertilizer;  the same with clover hay.  B- rnyard manure has, however, an  additional value���������one which at times  becomes quite as important as its food  value. To a sandy soil it gives body,  moisture-holding power, and a slow  and steadily available food supply���������orre  that will not wash out easily. To a  clay soil, particularly if it has had land  piaster added, it gives circulation of  air and moisture���������two essentials to  plant growth.  For these last reasons it is a valuable  helpmeet for the commercial fertilizer  in all but very r! ;h, loamy soils and  'those rich in decaying vegetable matter. It- benefit extends over into years  succccing its application,for these two  rcasor.;���������first, its improvement of lhe  texture of the soil is more or less permanent; second, it decays slowly, aird  slowly yields up its food con.stittrenls.  The whole $30 worth is not available,  and is therefore not. used the first year,  although it was (lecessary to place this  much within the reach  of the plant,    j  A word ��������� to a disadvantage of I  barnyard m.. -tire. All decaying vegetable and a' nal matter is favorable  to insect life; hence crops upon which  barnyard nvmurc is used are more liable to insect pests than those nourished with commercial fertilizers. This  may be in part avoided by spreading  the manure late in the fall, and leaving it exposed to  the winter frosts.  Barnyard manure is especially valuable for crops which have a long period of growth, like corn and potatoes  and clover hay, though it must not be  forgotten that there are also slow-  acting commercial fertili. ers which  serve the purpose as well.���������W.

There is about to be constructed between TManchcstei' and Liverpool, says  The London Spliure. an electric express  mono-rail track which will be the pioneer high-speed railway.in the world.  When tlie bill was brought before Parliament cautious persons prophesied rail-  ure, but after the committee had heard  evidence of prominent engineers, who expressed their opinion that travel at 110  times an hour was quite possible arid  safe on tho mono-rails. Parliament authorized the construction ot the line,  which will probably be tbo forerunner  of a host of subsequent mono-rails on  which wo shall travel nt high speed in  perfect comfort and with rro reasonable  chance of accident. Tho engineers are  Mr. Jr. B. Behr and Mr. R. Elliott-Cooper, who propose to run single cars on  the single-rail track at a speed of 110  miles an hour, the cars running everv ten  minutes. The length of thc line will be  about thirty-four and one-half miles, and  the cars will take twenty minutes instead  of the forty to forty-live minutes taken  by the present fastest express trains*run  by three railway companies. The patentees of this high-speed mono-rail is.  Mr. F. B. Behr, who has devoted himself  to this form of travel for many years  past. Some little while ago, in connection with the Brussels' exposition, Mr.  Behr built an experimental mono-rail on  which very high speeds wore attained.  The commissioners appointed to report  on the lino by various Governments expressed their opinion that speeds of 100  miles an hour and ovor would be quite  feasible on such a track, rhat cars could  run round sharp curves with no possibility of derailment, and that the passengers would feel no ill-effects from such  rapid travel. The earlier mono-rails  built by Mr. Behr were steam lines, and  many of those exist in various parts of  the world and give every satisfaction.  Mr. Behr's Idea in building the Manchester and Liverpool mono-rail is to convince  the railway companies of the advisability  of laying down special mono-rail tracks  solely for the express passenger traffic*,  thus leaving the present ground tracks  for slow passenger and goods traffic. Bn-  pincers are agreed that average speeds  of over seventy miles an hour aro Impossible on the cUrves found Jon existing  -railways.**1���������The^construcfroh^of rar"i*perei(ir-  mono-rall track would enable very high  speeds to be re died with perfect safely,  and would do ii*������-ny with 1 hat ���������'mixture  of speeds" whh renders the problem ot  dealing with express, slow and goods  trafilc ono of -������������������cr-increaslng difiiculty io  tho railway ���������ompanlcs. The mono-rail  tracks would be laid alongside tho existing two-rail ground tracks, or Iho cars  could be run overhead if so desired.

"It ls needless, hr>Hev<* me, Mr. Saybrook," she replied. ���������'Ho not wrong  yourself with such a hope."  "Ah, but, Rosa, I cannot help lt.

I could not expect to be  ���������without rivals, but, knowing my own  heart, I oan well indulge, the hope of  being able to surpass all in faithfulness  and devotion."  Tears sprang to the eyes of the young  girl. The situation was becoming very  embarrassing for her, and she determined to cut lt short by a candid explanation.  "Let me be frank with you, Mr. Saybrook," she said. "My faith is already  pledged to another, and I cannot break  it"  "Unwelcome as the news is to mo,"*  replied Ralph, showing no sign of discomfiture, "I do not see how it entirely  shuts me out from hope. I had reason,  perhaps, to suspect such a fact, but I  also had reason, to believe that lt was  not an objection that would prove in  any way Insuperable. Indeed. I did not  know but that your relations in* that  direction' had been broken off. Ot  course, you allude to Claude Rolff.

They approached ihe jjr^at'fro.it door  and the elder Saybrook placed his hand  on the heavy iron knocker and sounded an alarm vigorous enough to have  waked the soundest sleeper. It was  some seconds before the echoes ceased  reverberating through the vacant hall**1  and rooms.  They waited; but there was r.o answer. The summons was repeated.  Still no answer. Again and again did  Anthony Saybrook repeat the knocking  ln the loudest possible manner, but no  response came save the muffled echoes  from within.  "This is strange," he muttered, testily.

It had flashed across  Anthony Saybrook that perhaps Leb.  might have taken advantage ot the opportunity afforded him to break into  the old vault, rob It of any valuables it  contained, and make good his escape.  Hence his sudden agitation.  They made a hasty search of tho  rooms off from the old hall, and called  loudly for Leb. but there was no re-  sponce.  "Let us go down into the cellar," exclaimed the elder. Saybrook, who was  plainly very much dismayed and discomfited by the mysterious disappearance of Leb. "I'll warrant we'll And  his traces there.

"Let us look around," interposed  Ralph, who was of a less excitable na-.  ture than his father, but equally Intent  upon solving;, the mystery of Leb.'a  strange actions.  After considerable search, they discovered a tinder box and the same old  lantern with which Carl Crum had  guided the lawyer down to the lower  regions of the house, on a previous occasion. The lantern had in it a piece  of candle. Managing to light lt, they  proceeded cautiously through the dark  passages and stairways down to the  old cellar.

Thus'   Ralph  ���������was offered his own opportunity to declare himself, and the occasion was well  jchosen.   It,was a beautiful early spring  (day, and Rosa had been to the village  Ion������������������ some  errand,   when,   on   her  way ;  borne,   she  was  Joined   by  the  young  lawyer.

"I cannot believe it���������I will not believe it," replied Rosa hastily, and with  a sudden spirit that seemed to indicate that her feelings . were much  moved. "Tou all slander him; you all  seem conspired together to deceive n*e.  I cannot believe ill of him till'*I have  better evidence than I have yet seen."  "Possibly you are right as regards  the evidence," replied Ralph, who  shrewdly saw that it would not do to  press the point at present. "I confees  I can hardly believe so 111 of Claude  myself as his actions, would seem to  warrant. It is a point that perhaps a  little lapse of time will settle clearly.

The stone was across his breast, as he  lay stretched upon his back;: his face  ���������was twisted hack and turned toward  them; his git., -eyes protruded; and  blood had flowed from his mouth and  nostrils. It was evident that his life  had been crushed out at once,  The two met glanced .at each other  ���������with blank co  -tenances.  "Ralph, this ls horrible," said the  elder Saybrook, as soon as he* could  compose himself to speak. "I did not  expect any such result as this. Let us  look about Tes, yes, I see; he had  been making an attempt to get into  the vault. ��������� See here where he has been  to work trying to break through the  door.

"One thing Is certain," interposed  "Ralph, who had somewhat recovered  his coolness by this time, the gate ot  the yard being passed, "Leb. has been  foiled in his game of robbery, and the  old vault is safe. It is good luck, afteT  all."  "Well, perhaps so," responded the  Other. "But 1 hate terribly to be taken  In by any one in such a manner. Still,  as you say, it is sood luck that tlie  vault ls safe, but what it contains  I confess I don't know, though I suspect there is something valuable in it.  This affair will make a big talk; but  of course it will be seen at once that  Leb. was the cause of his own destruction, or if some are superstitious enough  to attribute it to supernatural means,  as many no doubt will, lt can make no  difference to us. I suspect we will have  difiiculty now to get some one to put  ln Leb.'s place; but even if we have to  lock the old house up, this event will  Inspire such dread that I do not believe  any ono will be so bold as to molest it  hereafter."  Thus discussing the matter, they  soon reached home, and, after a short  rest and consultation, the proper authorities were notified of the tragic  accident that had happened ln Rolff  House.  The officers of the law and a few assistants soon made ready and proceeded to the scene of the strange occui*-  renco. They were well provided with  lights, and, on investigation, the hurried surmises of Anthony Saybrook In  regard to the cause of Leb.'s death  .were fully confirmed. He had evidently made ah attempt to break ln the old  Vault, but, falling in his first efforts,  had drilled holes in the massive door  and attempted to blow It out with a  blast of powder. The only result had  been to Jar the heavy masonry, and  loosen a huge stone that rested as a  Bort of projecting cap above the door  of the vault, and, as he had approached and was probably occupied in observing the effectB of the blast, tha  Btone had given way from its position  and fallen upon him, forcing him backward and crushing him beneath its  Weight.  i The corpse was carried away, an Inquest held upon It, resulting in the  ���������usual verdict of accidental death. So  the would-be robber had been caught  in hiB own trap.  To the general*public, however, Leb.'s  tragic ending was proof positive that  Rolff House was "possessed" by evil  spirits, and that the tradition that the  Old vault was protected by the Evil One  was the sober truth. His recklessness  in risking himself in such a foolhardy  contest with the powers of evil was  commented on with many sober shakes  of the head, and all the old, well-worn  stories ln regard to strange occurrences  at the old mansion were revived and retailed with impressive earnestness to  groups of interested listeners.  As he' had surmised, Anthony Saybrook could secure no one to take tho  place made vacant by the death of Leb.  Sackett He would not have old Carl  Crum; so, trusting in-the protection'  which the popular belief that the house  was the,abode of evil spirits would afford, he had it carefully closed up and  left to only such occasional Inspection,  as he and Ralph should together make.

"Leb. seems to have managed that  llttie job of getting old Margaret out ot  the house very neatly," remarked Ralph  as they were discussing the matter.  "Tes," -responded the other.. "He  Bald he'd try.to fix it.'and he has succeeded very finely. But I am puszled  to know why he keeps himself so quiet  since the old lady left. Perhaps he Is  only trying to keep up the mystery;  but I have my suspicions somewhat  aroused. To tell tho truth, I haven't any  too much confidence in Leb. He's Just  a trifle too smart to be trustworthy.  It is irow four days since he has reported. Suppose after dinner we walk over  and see what ls up."  Ralph assented; and, dinner being  over, they proceeded to visit Rolff  Mouse.  As. they drew near the old place.  It looked as silent and deserted as If it  preached to see the effect of his operations, and crushed him to death.  Btrange and fatal reward of his knavery! What a spectacle! It leads one to  think of the stories they tell of the Evil  One keeping guard over the vault I'm  not superstitious, Ralph; but this thing  unmans me. Let us get out of this.  .We oan learn nothing further now. Wo  must touch nothing till we notify the  properMegaJ-^uthoritles.���������It!s**a**strange.  tragedy. It sickens me. Let us get  out"  They turned to go, when the feeble  flame of the candle grew suddenly faint  and then expired, leaving them in total  darkness. The situation was one that  might well. Inspire terror in the hearts  of braver men. Already horrified as  { they were, the sudden quenching ot  the light.threw them Into a panic of  fear. . They scrambled for tire cellar  door, as though the Evil One himself  were ready to seize them, tumbling over  each other and falling sprawling on  the cellar bottom. Fear added to their  confusion, and they were some time  in flndlhg the door. But they at last  succeeded ln doing so, and hastened up  the narrow stairs into the dark hall  above. Here again they were ln trouble, and some moments of fearful suspense were passed ere they discovered  the stairway that led to the upper hall.  They finally succeeded in gaining tho  door by which they had entered, and  drew easier breaths.       ���������  "Whew!" exclaimed Anthony Saybrook, "that is the worst scrape that  ever I got into. I wouldn't be down  there again for. a thousand dollars."  ���������No, nor for ten thousand," added  Jtalph.

' "Events drifted along a few weeks  Without any event to startle the community in regard to Rolff House.  The, old place: remained locked up  and deserted, but'it was better protected by the superstitious dread in which  It was held than it if had a score of  guards., Mr.* Saybrook had, sent; off  letters to Claude explaining and  smoothing over the late events, and also taking occasion to drop him certain  hints that would lead him to Infer that  old Mr. Bruyn's dislike to him continued  and that he had used his influence to  prejudice Rosa against him.. He did  not say this direct]y; in fact, he was  careful not to let Claude suspect that he  took any interest Whatever in his love  affairs; but he deftly managed to weave  certain facts and hints in his letter,  as if by the merest Inadvertance, which  the young man could not well help interpreting so as to arouse his suspicions that Rosa's love for him was already "becoming cold. The wily lawyer  argued that if he could arouse in the  young man a feeling that he had been  ���������lighted, his naturally'high spirit would  probably lead him tu express his resent*  ���������Tent by affecting eooihe'sV'anff reserve?  himself. He knew that he must bo  anxious by this time on account of the  teglect with which his letters had been  treated, and full of fancies as to the  reasons tor lt; and, by skillfully misleading him, hc hoped to so arouse his  lense of injured pride as to incline him  'Sodismiss^alUthoughUof^Rosft^frori^hirr  Bind. Amid the novelty and excitement *t his new life, he inferred that  Claude, like most young men, would  tasily forget past Impressions, and  that, could his thoughts and feelings  be turned into a new channel, his past-ion for tlio old farmer's daughter  would soon be so far erased from Iris  mind that Ralph would be left a clear  Held to woo and win her, no matter  ���������That turn events might take.  But Anthony Saybrook had no opportunity to learn the effect of his letter upon Claude, or whether, ln fact,  the young man received it at all. It  ovas a period when the mail service between this country and Europe was par.  ticularly irregular and "slow. Tha  tvorld was being shaken by the throes  ���������f the gigantic contest between England and the France of Napoleon,  which had Involved nearly all Europe,  and the consequences of which wero  slowly but inevitably dragging tho  young New World republic into war.  The seas were harried by the hostile  fleets of the belligerents, and commerce  was practically interdicted by the decrees the proud hostile nations hurled  at each other, commanding the world  to cease from commercial intercourse  with their enemies under threat of tho  capture and confiscation of ail ships  venturing to do so. The spirit of the  aspiring young Western nation illy  brooked this arrogant dictation, which  was destroying Its growing commerce;  and it had long been evident to careful observers that tiie outrages committed against American commerce  particularly by British cruisers -would  sooner or later result in hostilities. In  fact, the spirit of the peoplo was already-aroused to the highest pitch, and  'was pushing a peace-loving administration forward to the bold course ot recommending the young republic to un-  iheath its sword as ihe champion of  the rights cf cer.inreree. j;  (To be Continued.)  The man who captured Colonel John  Singleton Moseby, the most famous of  the Confederate guerillas during the  civil war, was George W. Fink. The  fact that Moseby was a prisoner under  Fink for only a short time, not more  than half an hour, in fact, does not  take away much from the glory of his  achievement, as may be seen from  the circumstances of the incident as  related by Mr. Fink at the Union station in the special train in which the  colonists lay over while arrangements  for the transfer from the Peunsylvruiia  to the Fort Wayne were being made.  At tho outbreak of the war Fink enlisted in Troop A, of the First Pennsylvania Cavalry, and went with that  command almost Iiuiut-dintely to th-.-  region of the Shenandoah Valley, whe.e  their field of operations continued to  be. In 1S01 Fink was one day a member of avecouting party sent out to re-  connolter, and in that capacity traveled a considerable distance from the  spot where the camp had been pitched.  It was learned from some of the Union  sympathizers in the region that a  small party of Confederates were concealed in a house three or four miles  away, and a detachment was sent after  them.  Fink himself rode up to the door and  demanded entrance, which was refused  him by the woman who answered his  knock at the door. She denied vigorously that any soldiers were within  and loudly protested against the intrusion of the scouts.  In one of the upper chambers two  officers, a lieutenant and a captain,  were found lying under the bed, and  were triumphantly dragged forth, covered with dust and lint from the floor.  In another room a third man, dressed  in civilian's clothes, but very evidently connected with the army, was found  and placed under arrest in company  with the others. Their arms were  taken from them, and under the guard  of Fink and one companion their return to the camp was begun.  On the way a thick wood was passed  through. The man in civilian's clothes  was riding at the front of the little  party. When tlie middle of the grove  was reached he wheeled his horse,  plunged the, rowels into its side and  dashed oft* to the right. J Fink promptly raised his carbine and fired at tho  rapidly retreating' form. The horse  fell dead, but the rider leaped free  from the animal's body and ran like  the traditional white head further'into  the woods. The cavalrymen corrld not  leave the two .prisoners who remained,  and who were watching with, breathless interest the flight of their comrade, so the journey to the.,camp'"was  continued without chase having been  made.  When headquarters were reached the  two ollieers were turned over to the  commander. On their way to the guard  house they turned to Fink and one of  them said:  "You may be interested In knowing  that the man who got away was Colonel Moseby." Then he started on  wllli his companion. Fink, in telling  the incident said:  "I was feeling sore enough over the  escape, as it was, but when I hoard  who my prisoner was, I felt like going  to the guard house myself,.and serving  the longest sentence 1 could persuade  iny superiors to give me."  It has never been positively established that the man who got away in  the woods was really Moseby. The  two officers averred that it was. and  Fink's comrades believed them and always called him "the man who captured Moseby."  - ��������� '-  if it was Moseby. it was the closest  escape he ever had from becoming a  prisoner of thc Federal government,  for there was no man probably in the  whole rebel army who was more wanted than he was and against whom  more determined i-fforts were directed.  Arch H. Rowand, Jr., the well-known  local attorney, who was during tho war  one of the,most famous of Federal  scouts, put in*the best part of three  years in trying to apprehend him. Mr.  Rowand this morning said in connection with the Fink incidoit-,   -,**.  "If Pink really had him I never  heard of it. I put in my spare time  and a good deai more during lSfiJJ-S-H  in going after the doughty old fellow,  and when we weren't after him he was  after ub. I was once chased by three  of his men from Stickers Gap clear  into Harper's Ferry. My own opinion  is that the man who skipped out in  the woods Fink speaks of was not the  guerilla at all, but that the ollieers who  ilitt'tS^ULClanc^to clcar^qutjtrst  said he was, to mal^lliSir'dwTi'ctiptora'  feel sore at their loss. Of course you  understand I "don't know anything  about the affair, and that this theory is  one of my own construction."  Moseby is still ulivc and resides in  California. Ho came into great prominence Just after the close of the Civil  war by becoming a Republican, or as  tho phrase wont then, a "reconstructed rebel." Ho held offlcc under President Grunt and him always remained  an administration mnn. During the  Spanish war he caine Into public notice again by applying for a commission. He wns told to get the recommendation of the Senators of his State,  but hotly declined to seek any such |  backing, closing tho letter in which he  did so with the characteristic declaration that ho was after an army job,  not a political appointment.

Receive  them  well, take pains to entertain them, enter with  vigour into the  accounts of youthful  prowess and you  will find  the'boys* eyes  turn towards  home as   the   flower   turns its face to  the sun.

Irr every othei' mining country in  tire British Empire but this, easy and  inexpensive means are provided for  the settlement"* of mining disputes.  The course generally pursued is to  form a .Mining ("(iiti-tL in each distriet  and the Warden, an olYicial sonrewlrat.  orr a par wilh ourtJold Commissioners,  is appointed its judge. Until British  (.'olrinibia joirred tbe Dominion a  similar plan was in force, here and  woi ked extremely well. The "Gold  Ordinance. 1S(I7." provided for- these  courts and any ordinary mining litigation was sumiii'irily disposed of  without the trouble or expense of  leaving tbe district, in which the dispute arose. Of course provision was  made for appeals in eases wheie  matters were adjudicated upon irr  which the interests were too complicated l.o permit tbe Mining Court  properly, heing that of last resort.  This procedure was attempted to be  revived irr tho "Mineral Act, 18SS," .by  which Mining Courts were vc-eon-  slilutod and large judicial powers  given to the Gold Commissioner. It  was nob long, however, until tlie  legality of the rrrirrirrg courts was  attacked and they were disposed of  irr the iirsl. ease. Tho sectiorrs constituting tbem had lo be repealed and  it is almost impossible for this Province to use this most satisfactory  method of dealing with mining  disputes.  The case, to whiee we refer is Bttrk  v. Turnstall, irr which judgment was  given on June 21, 11)00. By this judgment it was held that;  '��������� It is competent for the Province to  create Mining Courts, and to iix tlieir  jurisdiction, but not. fo appoint arry  officers, thereof with other than  ministerial powers."  The question naturally arises, why is  the Province not competent? And  here again our old bugbear, the B.N. A.  -Vet, steps in and says "No.'* British  Columbia can organize and maintain  courts of all kinds, but the judges  ��������� mist he appoint ed by the Dominion,  which it is fair to say pays tlieir  salaries. This i.s another matter in  which the B. N. A. Act should be  amended. The Province can and does  organize, appoint magistrates of and  run police coin-Is having jurisdiction  liver the liberties of our citizens, but  cannot' provide a great, convenience  for the prospector when minor- mining  disputes arise. This and many other  things prove that the time is ripe for'  a general overhauling of the 13. N. A.  Act.  But  " MINER " MISTAKES.  Very many newspapers in the Province show a lamentable ignorance of  all'airs when attempting to discuss  local politics. The Camborne "Miner'  is one of these. Irr its last issue there  i.s an article, purporting to give an  account of the coril emplaied reductions irr lire civil service, in which the  following occurs :  "Among those let out aro two men  from the laird registry oflice, but unfortunately W. S. Gore, Deputy  Conimissioner'. is .not one of them.  Xow that the ministers have stalled  bouse cleaning, they should pay  particular attention to tbe land registry ollice and remove the cobwebs and  dust from the documents so that in  future applications for crown grants,  etc., may be aeknowledg-td and attended to at least within a year from  their dates."  What makes this so .amusing is the  fact that \V. ,S. Gore was never in the  Band Registry ollice and has nothing  whatever to do with it, the regulation  of all registry offices being under the  control of the Attorney-General.  Again, the office in question lias  nothing to do with the issuance of  Crown grants, and anyone applying  there for tbem would receivo a polite  intimation to try again at the proper  department.  Does nob the *'Miner" know tbat  Mr. Gore is Deputy Conimissioner of  Lands and "Works? XVe thought  everyone did. As for removing thc  head of tlie Land Registry office in  Victoria, tbe matter has not been  thought of and will not be. Mi: S. Y.  Wootton, the registrar, .is one of tire  most capable officials in thc public  service and fills the marry dirties, such J  as those of Registrar of Joint Stock  Companies, allotted to hirrr inapronipt  'and efficient manner. '  There ought to be a. journalistic  kindergarten where newspaper men,  such as the editor of tho " Miner,"  could receive a, training in the first  requisite of journalism���������a knowledge  of the facts. Mny vo recommend tb  our coir temporary Lincoln's.' well  krrown motto���������:" Be sure you're rigiit,  then go ahead."

Obviously the way to leatn is to  study the methods of rrreir who have succeeded.  Guides to success are many. What do they say? Be honest. Tell the truth.  Work hard. Save money. Do $20 worth of work for wages of $$. Such advice  is good, no doubt, as far as it goes,���������but is not something more needed?  ITlid these methods alone make IIillis, and UoK, and Reed, and CARNEGIE,  arrd Cukti.s, successful ?  Young nren are not fools. They see that there is a secret of success, and  that it is more than honesty and hard work, else every honest hard worker  would be successful.  The secret lies in controlling the minds of men. IIow to make others believe  you, trrrst yon, arrd do what you wish,���������this is wlrat you must learn. To he sure,  few will learn it but tlrm-.e who also work hard and tell the truth. These come  first,���������but thry are rrot all.  As a guide to the highest success, " Modern Eloquence" has no rival. It is  a splendid scries of object-lessons by masters in the art of influencing men's minds.  And the success aimed nt is far more than mere money success. Fame, power, honor,  the gratitude and love of generations to come,���������these are the rewards which have  spurred to such efforts the men whose words are gathered in these ten rich volumes.  In " Modern liLorjUENCU" the men who have won success in every line speak  for our instruction:��������� 9 >  In Lav/, there are Evarts and Phelps, both the Choates, Coudert, and David  Dudley Field.

The following questions were ptrt bv  Mr.  Chamberlain  in tho course of his  speech   at   the    Constitutional   Club,  June 26th, 1903:  What is the alternative to Preferential Tarill's as a system by which tiro  Empire can be held together?  AVill opponents say by whnt process  they hope to secure the closer union of  the Colonies with the Mother Country?  Is it a fact that, the experts of our  manufactured goods to our own Colonies already exceed the total exports  of our manufactured goods to all the  protected states in Europe and the  United States of America?  Is it a fact, that our exports to these  protected countries ure decreasing in  quantity, and deteriorating in their  profitable character?  Would it irot be better to cultivate  trade with "our own kinsmen and fellow-subjects, who take from us at the  present, time more than ������100,000,000 in  manufactured goods?  Shall we lose this opportunity for  the sake of air 'attempt to conciliate  300,000,000, of foreigners,' who take  froni us only a few shillings a bead?  Is it true that the existing policy of  free imports is necessary to our prosperity?  Is it the fact, as we are told on the  authority of Sir Henry Canrpliell-  Bannerman. that 12,000,000 of our  people���������more than orre-fo.rrth of the  whole population���������are always on the  verge of starvation?  Is that a proof of the blessings of  free imports?  Is it. true of many once profitable  industries that, the whole of the capital invested irr them has been lost?  Is it true that the workpeople  employed in them have gone to join  Sir Henry Campbell-JBariiierinan's  12,000,000, or have been forced to  emigrate, where ihey are finding employment in competition with their  comrades at home?  Is it, or is it not, the fact that our  greatest and oldest industries���������especially the iron trade and . the textile  industries ��������� are threatened as they  never were before?  Is it true that these indiistriesinight  at any time be overwhelmed by a  great importation of goods, manufactured abroad arrd sold here below cost  price���������the produce of protected states?  Has the .progress of these protected  states been in 'much greater proportion  than the progress of Great Britain  under free trade?

How tho lied ".Inn l!tlli/<-.i n Product of tin  Sl-tug-Iiler Iiouko,  The Montana Indian ia something of  a schemer himself. He comes to town  and sometimes walks all over the place  without saying a word to any one.  Sometimes ho brings in a few sets of  polished mounted cow's horns, which  he sells for a dollar or two a cet. He  never frequents saloons. He looks Into  clothing store windows, but never  bucks the slot machines in cigar storeB.  He frowns as he passes a restaurant,  but smiles while walking through the  swectscented alleys back of cheap  boarding houses.  In a horse trade he takes the prize,  if there's one to be taken, for he was*  never known to get iho worst of such  a bargain. The reason of this, ho-.**--  ever, may lie In the fact that ho begins  the negotiations with nothing to lose  aud everything to win. However, hc  has the reputation of a schemer.  Where his schemes shine brightest  is in the scale of polished "buffalo"  horns. He lives out near one of the  slaughter houses on the sonth side, and  there he secures his "buffalo" hornis,  all sizes, curves and consistencies. Hc  picks out a sot of ox horns of symmetrical proportions, scrapes the  scales off and bolls the horns ln a solution of glycerine, wood ashes and water. This treatment softens the'horns,  so hat a case-knife will easily remove  all the exterior acciimulation. Then  fine sandpaper is used to give the first  polish, followed by a thorough rubbing  with a flannel cloth slightly saturated  with oil. A varnish or shellac is then  applied, and the horns are in condition  for mounting. Then the work Is turned over to the squaw, who does the  really artistic work. Red flannel and  braid, beads sometimes, and a strio  here and there of buckskin, a few  brass-headed tacks and the mounted  "���������buffalo" horns are ready for the  market.  Mr. Buck comes to town and the  tenderfoot asks him where he "ketch-  em buffalo horns."  "In Yallowstone Park," grunts the  big buck.  "How much?"   asks   the   intending  purchaser.  "Two dolls." j-*.**-  "Too muchee."  "No, no; cheap; thine dolls, ugh."  The tenderfoot inspects the work and  satisfies himself that they are really  the horns of an almost extinct species  of the majestic Western animal, and he  hands over tho coin and walks away  proudly with his prize.

I  saw him recently when I was down In  his neighborhood looking after the title of some farm property, and was  greatly interested in his story.  He is now about 70, tough and gnarled  as a tree, and the mark of his horrifying a'dventure consists of a curiously  ridged and Indented scar, about four  inches across on the top of his   head.  "He says he was one of a party o'f.  emigrants who had taken what was  then known as the 'Fremont overland-  trail,' for California, and while passing through southern Kansas he and  two otner young men left the main  party to ride after some antelopes.  They were intercepted by Indians and  his two companions killed. He himself  was shot in the back and fell off his  horse senseless. The firing was heard  by the other emigrants, and a rescue  party drove the savages away.

An Indian cannibal has heen sent to  jail in Vancouver. His crime was part  of an ancient rite. He was an initiate  of the Ha-mattsa, an Tndian secret  fraternity which demands of its members that they acquire a taste for human flesh.  The Canadian government is greatly exercised over this outbreak of a  barbaric custom that had been thought  well nigh stamped out.  One of the prisoners was a well-  known half-breed named George Hunt.  He had charge of a hand of Indians, exhibited at the World's Fair, nnd he  acted as interpreter for Dr. Franz  Boas, of the Museum of Natural History, New York, when tho latter was  in Vancouver collecting data for his  important work on Indian customs,  now tiled at the Smithsonian Institution.  There was InsuITlclcnt cvidonro for  lire conviction of Hunt, and the same  is trrre of all the defendnn'a save ono.  He wa.s convicted of having devoured a  portion of the body of a squaw.  It Is -only among n few of tlte far  northern nnd inland tribes, rcnui'e  from civilization and stubborn In their  resistance to missionary effort, that  tho horrible rites of tho Ha-maltsa, or  flesh-caters, survive.  Every spring the ffa-inattsa holds  its initiation ceremonies for new candidates, accompanied by feasting and  dancing and other wild orgies. The  chief purpose of tho initiation ls to  create in the aspirant the tasto for human flesh.  In the case in question the body of  a young squaw who had mys'.eriously  died but a few days before was rc'-  moved from the burying ground and  taken to the Initiation room, where It  was lashed naked to one of the posas.  A band of the Ha-mattsas, marched  round It, inflamed by wild mrrsic and  frenzied yells of the old Ha-mattsas,  and proceeded to bite off mouthfu'ls of  flesh from the arms, sides and legs of  the squaw's body.  The Northwest "Mounted Police were*  Informed of the hideous rHe and succeeded in^captur.'ng the ringleader.  Many, curious facts about, the cannibal fraternity came to light during  the trial. It was developed that for initiation into tho Ha-muttsas tho novice  must go and live four or five weeks in  the forest seeing no one and eating no  food.  At the *fcnd of his banishment  Iris '"spirit" "appears in tho shape oil  some animal, which ho at once kills  nnd devours raw, whereby he is supposed to imbibe its courage and  strength, which thereafter dwell in  him. He returns from the forest  adorned with a headdress of cedar  bark, dyed red' wh ich is ope of the  emblems of the flesh-eating fraternity,  and is worn by him during the progress of the initiation. He is metby a  band of the secret brotherhood, who  escort him to the village with much  ceremony.     *  -  They are joined hy an attendant  bearing in his arms a dead body, which  must be that of a young squaw. -In  ancient times she was sacrificed for  the occasion.  Walking behind'thfs body, the candidate is led into the dancing-house,  which; has been cleared for the ceremony.  ��������� The; body is tied to a post and ITke*  unspeakable rite begins.  There were witnesses : at'.'the trial  who swore that Hunt, the half-breed,  had cut the body to pieces for distribution among the old members and tho  novice, and that all joined in devouring the flesh. Certain it is that the  man from the woods, naked and half-  starved after his vigil, played his part-  In the rite, whilo his...jv������cciates spurred him or'T^itl: "ance and song.  ���������Ana if they did not actually join  him ln the gruesome feast, they stimulated his zeal by making concerted,  wolf-like rushes at the mangled body  and pretending to,fight over the flesh.  Nor did the candidate for Ha-mattsa  honors escape with one night of horrors. Four times, as darkness fell, he  was led Into the dance-house and compelled to undergo the trial prescribed  by Indian tradition. On the fourth  night the corpse had been all devoured.  Then came another stage of the ceremony���������the eating of living-flesh. In  this the uninitiated spectators were allowed to play a passive part. The Ha-  mattsa ran hither and thither among  them, biting with the ferocity of a  wildcat and eating their flesh.  It was a point of pride With the victims to endure the onslaught with stoicism. Besides, the customs of the or-  -der^prjeserlbeigiftri*^  themselves to be bitten. The first prize  on this occasion was awarded to a boy  who allowed a large mouthful to be  detached from his forearm.  Having gaithfr'rlly performed all that  was required of him. the candidate was  pronounced by the elders a full-fledged  Ha-mattsa.  It then devolved upon his proud family to give a great feast ln his honor.  Human flewh was not included In the*  repast, but thc new Ha-mattsa exhibited his zeal by occasionally taking a  bite out of his nearest neighbor's arm  or shoulder, and these attentions were  submitted to with great good humor.  Most important of all was the distribution by the young Ha-mattsa of  blankets and other gifts tb all tho persons whom he had honored by biting.

A brief telegram the other day recited that ono James McMullon had  lost an arm in/a wringing machine In  a laundry at Hutchinson. Here is ihe  remarkable story, related about the  accident by the ���������Hutchinson News:  "McMullen stopped at the wringer  and held his hands over'it to dry!  them. Ilr- g0������ one hand too low so  that tho air suction caught, it, and his  arm from the elbow down was taken  off as by a miracle. The wringer is a  large circular iron affair, with u .sir.nll-  er bowl inside it in which the do hr.a  arc' placed.

When  a cyclone strikes a brick building and hurls it to atoms the  force seems appalling and1 incomprehensible. The accident to Mr. McMullen* was equally mystifying. : The Instant his arm came into contact with  the current of air it was parted at the  elbow. One part lay on- the clothes  that were in the machine and the other dangled from his shoulder. There  was nothing about the machine to give  him even a scratch.  "The nerve exhibited by McMullen  was wonderful. ' 'It never touched me,'  was the first thing ho said.

Public interest has been aroused recently on this , question by the exor-  tion of a confession from a thief bv  means of hypnotism.  A confession of crime obtained in  this way may -or may not be a vali'dl  one. It ls not necessarily infallible,  any more than a voluntary confession  would be. It would have to bo verified by other evidence before it could)  be seriously considered.  Hypnotism will not make a liar instantaneously veracious. It is a very  common opinion that a hypnotist can  completely capture the mind of his patient without his consent, and discover all the secrets of his past life.  Hypnotism only gives us a means  whereby we can the more readily, get  at the divine man within.* It is not so  much.* key to the door of a man/si  mind'as a more effectual way of ringing the door-bell and conversing with  the occupant.  Generally speaking, a strong-willed  man may still keep his criminal secret  in spite of all influences, hypnotic or  otherwise. As a rule criminals are  ^very--hard=to^hypnotize,=because=they-.  set their whole nature against the hvp-  notist, and when a man is under the  influence of liquor it is impossible to-  do anything with him,  There is no doubt that hypnotism*,  can and will be used to detect crime..  But we aro only on the threshold of  knowledge in this direction, and no  one can set limits to the future of hypnotism in overcoming the obstinacy, of  criminals. The time may come when  the old, Ineffectual methods of regenerating tne moral nature will be su-,  perseded by hypnotic treatment. 'The  astonishing results already attained  prove this beyond question.  By hypnotism we can reach people  who are moral Imbecile:!, and by no-  other power known to man can you do  this.  We can discover the sense of right  and wrong where none seemed to'exist. We can overcome evil habits and  awaken the higher self which never  completely dies in any man or woman.  Where every other influence has  failed to restore a man to moral san*<  ity, hypnotism has succeeded. So I  would say that if It fails to extract a  confession from a criminal no other  means can be used with mrccess.  There is such a thing as compulsory  hypnotism, which can be' applied to  any person without his consent. It 1%  possible to shatter a human will as  you might break a china vase against  a rock. But this Is a new and almost  undeveloped field, about which little  can be said at present.  "Wire") Need Rent. :.

With that he pushed iiis chair a little  back from the fire, set his pipe in hia lap,  and with his feet resting upon the fender told mo the following extraordinary  story:  Eliza Fulham was sentenced to a long  term of imprisonment on a charge o)  .forgery. Her maiden name was Chambers, and she was tlte daughter of a  Canadian rancher. At the age of eighteen she married a man named l-'ulham  ;Who came from the States, and aftei  somo five years of life in Canada she  went with him to .England, where thej'  settled down to a humble, humdrum ex-  jistence in the suburbs of London. There  were no children of lire marriage.  The man, Thomas Fulham, was several  years older than Iris wife, and her very  counterpart.     Whereas  she   was   small.  fair, gentle and infirm of will, he was  '���������huge, black, stern, and  n man of iron  determination.   His full, dark eyes were  expressive of the most profound melancholy, and the character of his mouth  iwas severe, and at times eyeii cruel.   Hc  Was  frequently   thrown    into    fits    of  gloomy depression, which lasted several  days.   He waa glunr, taciturn, secretive.  !His wife, at  tire  time of her marriage  and for several years after, knew nothing of his antecedents.   He came suddenly into her somewhat lonely life���������a striking looking man of magnificent physique,  a fj-reat hunter, a bold rider, a lover of  solitude���������and sp; powerful was  the en-  fchantment ho cast over the girl's mind  '"that for many months, thinking lie did  ���������iurt care for her, she suffered severely  [both in mind and body.    Her love for  'aim  was of  thc blind and unreasoning  order���������o  girl's  love  for  a hero  of romance; the sort of love that is common  .enough  in  young  and    unsophisticated  communities, however rare it miry be in  'modern Europe.   She loved blindly, arid  when one day he rode up to her father's  ranch,  tied 'his- horse  up  to  the  rails,  .entered tho house, and without preface  jof any kind told her that she must mar-  ;ry him, the girl was wild with happi-  jness.  Her father appeared content with Fui-  jham's assurance that he had private  ���������means, and no bar was raised to their  .engagement. They were married, and at  Iher father's death, five years later, they  'left the country.  j   My story begins after their arrival in  JEugland.   But I must tell you first that  isoon  after the marriage,-although she  "continued  to  adore her  husband, Eliza  ;Fulhajn was distressed by his deepening  'melancholy and by the unliiting shadow  ifchttt overhung his thoughts.    She real-  'ized that she was married to a confirmed  .hypochrondriae, and niter vain attempts  !to dispel the mists of his melancholy she  jsettled down to a gray colored life, con-  jtent if- she avoided giving him offence,  land enchanted if he, ever bestowed upon  |her any mark of tenderness or affection.  jSuch a.life, as you may well imagine,  ;had a; numbing effect upon her intelli-  igence.   The vigor of the strongest mind  lwould decay and atrophy in an atnios-  iphere cf this kind; and as the poor girl  ���������was 'of a weak and clinging nature her  'environment was peculiarly adapted to  jthe destruction of her so-nity.  j   One day, she told  me���������it was some  jeigJht years after her marriage���������Thomas  jFulham returned to   his   villa after  a  |VJ*sitto London, canje.into the kitchen  [where sho was helping a libtle maid of  sail - work to . prepare' tlio evening meal,  'rand, taking her hand, led her without a  Word  into, tho  sitting-room.    Hero  he  Said both hands upon her shoulder, and  for several moments looked deeply into  ���������her eyes.    Then he. drew her nearer to  ihim, kissed her gently between the eyes,  and spoke as follows:  ;   "My dear'JMnry,"* said he, "it has been  dawning'upon me sloivly for several days  thai I have not shown you the kindness  and the attention which your great affection deserves, and which my love for  you is most ready  to display.    I have  had thoughts to worry me, business lo  (occupy my mind, and conscientious difficulties* in Ure ��������� matter of* religion.    But,  'by the mercy of  heaven, I  have  now  - shaken- these =_troubles_f mm _ my _hrain,  and from this time forth we will be all  the world to each other."    ,  She was so enraptured by this confession that she did not concern herself to  tell him he had addressed her by a wrong  name. She threw herself upon his breast*  told him that hc had always been good  fto her, and professed the most complete  And consuming adoration for her one  friend in the world.  Ho seemed pleased by her artless love,'  ' fondled her with quiet affection, and  studied'her countenance with lingering  Interest, "you arc not looking at all  well," he said presently. "You stay too  much indoors. I must take you about."  She said she was perfectly content with  her life.  "You.: deceive yourself," he answered.  "You are not well. You have grown  much thinner, and I notice that in order  to obscure this effect upon your face  you have taken to-wearing your hair in  a different fashion."  She laughed, and said that he was  qui to mistaken.  "Do not distress me by contradictions,"  he answered, a little impatiently. '"I  remember perfectly well that you always  wore your (hair parted in the center, and  caught away from the' brows, which  gave your face a. more. open, and simple  expression. I hope you will return to  that fashion. T I liked it, and it suited  you." ".''..  To Inrtnor (him she said that she would  dress her hair in future like a Madonna.  J'At that he shuddered.  "Like the Madonna!" he said, almost  under his breath. "Yes, yes, like the  Madonna. All women should emulate  ���������ttflH-lt holy purity; certainly, cortainly."  -And then ho added, thoughtfully, "I desire my Mary to he liko tho Mary of  Scripture.-*  ���������"Why. A> jou call mo Mary?" she  asked, smiling np into his eyes.  He looked at her in surprise. "Why T  {Became your name ia Mary."  "Ko," she answered; "H is an uglier  name, a much uglier name."  i.3Mr 'It-tie wife in ill." he eald. gently.  "Come, I have neglected you too long."  "No, dear, I am not ill," she answered,  "and I know that my name is Eliza."  He frowned angrily. "Your name is  Mary," he said.  "If you call me Mary, Mary I will be,"  Bhe answered.  "Your name 13 Mary," he rejoined.  That evening, when they had finished  their meal, he drew from his coat an  old leather pocketbook, which he had  kept iri his possession ever since their  marriage.  "I was looking to-day at one of your  old photographs," ho said; "it was tlris  that made mo realize how much thinner  you have becomo since your arrival iu  tlris country." He looked for a minute  nt a photograph in Iris hand, arrd then  passed it to his wife.  "Tlrnt was tihe old Mary," he said, tenderly.  She  looked   with  amazement   nt   lire  picture of another woman,    lt was tiro  picture of a girl some twenty years of  age, with large, quiet eyes, arrd a beautifully gentle mouth.   The hair was worn  as hc had described, and  thero was rip  likeness between herself and this woman.  '"This is not 1," she said, looking up.  lie smiled sorrowfully.   "Is it possible  that you have  forgotten yourself?"  he  suid.  "But, really, this is someone, else."  "My dear JTUary, you aro ill.   Wlrat enn  possibly   have   occurred   to   make   you  doubtful of your own identity?   Look at  the back of the photograph;  you have  written your own name there."  She turned tho picture over and there  on the back, written across the photographer's usual advertisement, was the  name of Mary Townserrd.  She looked up;  her husband was regarding her with a smile of quiet  triumph.  "Well?" he asked.  "This is nil wrong" she said. "There  is some mistake. My father's name was  Chambers.    My own name is Eliza."  Without answering, but continuing to  smile tolerantly, ho drew from his pocketbook a folded document, ,nnd passed Jit  to his wife.  She opened it and saw that it was a  certificate of marriage. Her heart began to beat nervously, and tears rusher!  to her eyes. .The document witnessed to  a���������'!marriage 'between' Thomas' Fulham of  Cedar City, Nevada,:aiul Mary Jefferson  Townsend, of Salem, Ore.���������-four years before her Own.  "What.does it mean?" sho 'cried,.*with  a sob.  "It should convince you," he said, tenderly, "tliart your nanre is Mary; thai  this picture is your photograph, and that  the signature at Hie back is your own.''  "No, nol" sire cried, starting up. '"'It i.-*  a lie!    I say it is a lie!"  At that moment, she told me, the poor  thing felt the full horror of her loneliness. AVilhoul a relative in the world  alone in a strange country, she found  herself in the grip of a* man who persisted in attaching to her an identity not  her own, who forced upon her a personality that was not hers; and this man  was her one guardian and protector, in  the world! lier brain was possessed with  horror, and she could do nothing but, cry  out, "It is a lie���������a lie!"  He looked n't her calmly as she said  this; then he look tire paper from the  floor where"she had dropped it, and with  quiet precision folded it* up and replaced  it with the photograph in his pocket-  book. She stood there, mesmerized,  while he slowly closed the 'book and  pulled the clastfc strap about its covers.  The room was growing dark, and she remembered that the streot lamp outside  their window was suddenly lighted as hn  placed the book in iris pocketbook and  looked up at .her. She could see hia  black eyes shining upon her as ho stood  thero on the other side of the fireplace-  huge and tyrannic���������the flame of the  street lamp dancing against the window  of the room.  ��������� He came to her, rested his. fingers upon  her shoulders, and regarded 'her with  fixed intensity, his face close to her own.  It was for many minutes, or so it seemed  to her, that he stood there in tho gloom  fixing her with this long-arid searching  gaze; then, very gently, and very slowly,  he put his arms about her, gathered her  up to his breast, and, as if she liad been  a sick child, carried her from tiro little  parlor up to their Jbedroom on the floor  above. She was completely under the  6pell of his gaze, and could say nothing,  and could make no protest against his  action.  . "You are ill, dearest," he said, when  they reached the J bedroom. "You must  go to bed, and rest there until you are  quite restored." He bent down and took  the shoes fromThor feet.  "I am not ill," she answered. "I am,  indeed, quite well. Only���������only why do  you say I am somebody, else?"  :i^He^kissed-her,_and^-slre-toUi jne-ihat  never before had he been so deliriously  tender to her. His very voice was a caress.  "Beloved," he said, "you are ill, though  you do not know it���������very ill. I will  watch over you and.nurse you Ull you  arc restored to me again, for I could not  support life if you were taken fronr me."  He assisted her to undress, and put  her to bed. Then Ire drew a chair to her  side, and, sitting there, holding her hand,  spoke as follows:  "I once had a terrible dream, dearest;  I dreamed that you were dead; that people came and bore you away from me,  locked up in a coffin so tlrnt I could not  see your beautiful eyes, iror fondle your  dear hands, .which tlrey had folded upon  your breast. It was a dream from hell,  und when I woke up mid found you still  alive I could scarce believe that it was  true, so strong was the hold of that bad  dream upon my mind. And now. tliat  you are ill I am full of terrible fear that  my dream may come true. You inu-it  live, Mary���������yoi' mirst live to comfort  me, for without jou the devils will goad  me to madness iind self-destruction.^ Promise rne that you will try to live."  The yearning in the last sentence filled  tire hrystifie.'.' girl-wife, and she kissed  the hands fondling her own, promising  that sire would get well, and that she  would never leave lrinr.  Then he sat 'there and talked* of a  past in which she had.never shared. He  recalled anecdotes of lier homo, her father, and her old uncle the ironmaster, and  she knew that he was talking of the  home of this Mary Townsend whom he  hud married four years, before he married her. It was a horrible situation; to  all Iris appeals, '"Do you remember this?"  and "Don't you recollect that day wo  rode to this place or that?",she hud to  rrod her head and express recollection of  a past she knew nothing about.  Well, for the ifrst day of this treatment ehe listened eagerly, curiosity  naturally urging her to learn all she  could of this man's first wife. And he  never Mt  her till  to fetch food and  Irfnk, tending her with extraordinary  iact and tenderness. But at the end of  the second day her brain grew weary,  jnd it was then that delusion first be-  Jan its assault upon her consciousness.  Now, you know how .frequently we  think during a conversaUon, "I have  heard that before," or, on visiting a  Icene, it suddenly strikes us that we  have seen it on former occasions. You  know all that? Well, there is a scientific explanation. When tbe intelligence  Is alert the sound of words is conveyed  Instantaneously to the consciousness;  the lobes of the brain grasp the meaning  of words at tho very moment their  sound strikes upon the drum of the ear.  ind weary, the attention flagging, rind  there is delay���������albeit infinitesimal, tliat.  delay, that fraction of a second's interruption in the normal working of the.  mind is sullieierrt to produce these wandering delusions. "1 have heard that before!" we exclaim, believing it to be  years and years ago; and quite truly,  wc have heard it before���������the thousandth  part of a second ago.  This explanation I apply to the case  of Eliza Fullrain. She told nre tlrnt on  the second day as lie sat by the bedside  talking to her of tlris past, it suddenly  struck her that she was familiar with it,  familiar with tire very words ho was  addressing to her, and tlint somewhere irr  the mysterious past she had threaded  the ways of which he spoke. She roused  herself to see if she were not dreaming.  Then she checked her thoughts and  brushed the theory aside. She was herself, Kliza Chambers, daughter of a Canadian farmer, and now the second wife of  Thomas Fulham, the man who had lived  beside her dead father in the far-off  Canadian days.  It was a 'battle between memory and  the present. On the one side was recollection of her past, on the other the  live and active present which told her  she was Mary Townsend. You may imagine the conflict.  Days went by, many days, and still he  kept her a prisoner in bed, nursing her  with engaging gentleness, and waiting  upon her smallest whim with -the alacrity of a lover. They were in a measure  .the best days she had known, for the  pretty little creature had long been sick  lor love, and now the hero of her romance was showering upon her a thousand tendernesses. But they were days  of struggle���������the conflict of memory and  present���������and every day found her memory weakening in the strife: She could  not tell me definitely When she abandoned her personality:'. The transition  must have been so gradual, she thought,  that no actual date could be assigned to  it; but when sire rose from her bed it  was with the full and complete conviction that she had been Mary Townsend.  that she had lived in* Oregon, and that  it Was in the old town.of Salem she married Thomas . FuUiam. Eliza Chambers  Was forgotten.  i She was weak in health, and her weakness increased. Tlie greater part of her  day was passed on the sofa, her husband  in the closest attendance. In brief, she  had become a complete invalid. -  . -.Three years after tlris, when she had  almost forgotten her belief in the existence of Eliza Chambers, her husband  came to her room one morning, in a  state of great excitement, with a letter  in his Jhand.  "Mary," he cried, "I have bad news  for you, and good news, too. You Te-  member your uncle, Zachary Townsend.  ;the ironmaster? "He is dead, and he has  ���������left you a. fortune���������a big fortune."  ; JHe came to the bedside, put the fluttering sheet in her hands,, and as she  read it he placed his arms tenderly about  ���������her and kissed her. hair,  j -.Well, when she had received that for-  Itune she believed herself, to be the dead  ���������wife.'..'

While she trembled and gasped before  him, however, his face suddenly softened,  a look of the most tender compassion  dawned in his eyes, and he stretched out  a hand, resting it gently upon her head.  "Against two women have I sinned,"  he said, slowly and brokenly; "the ivife  whom I forgot in death, nnd the woman  whom I must forget in life"  And he left her���������without another word  he went out of the room and out of the  house.

A saleswoman in a Paris dressmaker's  establishment, whose salary was twenty-  Jive hundred dollars a year, accepted an  offer of three thousand dollars from a rival firm, nnd promised to forfeit two  thousand dollars if she broke the new  contract. Thereupon her employer advanced her salary to thirty-seven hundred dollars, nnd agreed to pay the forfeit provided she would rrrake no change.

TMiich interest has lately been aroused  in London by two surgical operations  which have resulted in a marked change  of character in the patients.

This expensive animal, which appears  to have been designed by Providence to  keep man poor and humble is found in  both Europe and America. Much controversy has arisen over the classification  of tlris interesting creature, owing to the  circumstance that only married men havo  etudied the species at close range, and  they write of it with* a manifest prejudice and venom that robs their observations of all weight.  Some of the scientists go so far as to  declare that tiro Shopper i3 the original  vampire, that bleeds a man's pocket-  book to thc lust drop that is in it. Others affirm that it delights in torturing  its victim by pulling its leg, but tho  truth of the matter seems to be that  it merely belongs to the class of animals  that have no grip, and let thirds grjt  away from them (genus fomnibus li'-irk-  ruptus).  In appearance thc Shopper is inconspicuous, being clrielly noticeable for  currying a* bug stuffed full of samples  and newspaper- advertisements. These,  however, lender it. so formidable that  peoplo give it the right of way, and  men, especially, lice ut its approach.  it has been found impossible to obtain  any iiecura.te information ns to tiro  habits of the Shopper. According to the  most reliable data that have been furnished ou tiro subject, it is, at times, a  most docile, intelligent nnd affectionate  domestic animal, performing its tasks  with willingness and ability, when suddenly it will be attacked with a wild  mania, and, breaking every restraint,  will rush off to the bargain counter.  These fits, which are similar to those  which seize animals in the Wild Wes*  after eating the loco plant, seem to be  occasioned by reading the advertisements  of the department stores in the Sunday  newspap-er, for which reason many eminent elenrymen advocate the abolition of  the Sunday paper.  Arrived at the shop, the Shopper  rushes wildly up one aisle and down another with no apparent purpose, but will  lock horns and fight with another Shopper over the possession of something  that neither one of them wants.

"Urn!" drawled  Irving. "As���������ch���������Hamlet, did you say?"  Tiie other, incensed by the tone of the  query, bridled up at once. "Bo you  think, Sir Henry,"'he demanded, indignantly, "that you are the only man who  can play Hamlet?" "Oh no," rejoined  Irving, blandly; "but I am quite sure  that you are the only man who can't."  The late Paul du Clraillu w:as on one  occasion asked why he had never married. "Well, once upon a time," he _ answered, without a smile, "an old African  king who was very fond of me offered  me my choice of eight hundred and fifty-  three women as a wife." 'Your majesty,' I replied, 'if I should marry one of  these beauties of yours there would be  eight hundred and fifty-two jealous women here.' 'Well,' replied the king, 'that  is easily settled. Take them all.' That  was a little too; strong for me, however,  and as I have never had such a field to  choose from since, I am still a bachelor."  Chnuncey JM.

A peculiarity of the Shopper is its utter indifference to hunger and fatigue  while on one of its raids. It will sustain  itself by nibbling at a cream puH, and  although ordinarily so fragilo and weak  it cannot walk the length of thc street  or sweep a room, it will lead a rush on  'a counter of marked-down blouses with  a vigor that would make a football player look sick.  Another' interesting characteristic is  that the Shopper's sole idea seems to be  to get rid of money, and it will buy anything. *It may go out with a list of a  special sale of tin pans for the kitchen,  and come Home with forty yards of off-  .color chiffon in place of them. This peculiarity in an apparently intelligent  creature can only be accounted for on  the theory that Uie Shopper suffers at  times from'being bluffed.  JMcn, as may be supposed, stand in  great fear and dread of the Shopper;  but, unfortunately, there are no outward  marks by which it can be distinguished  from tho ordinary female domestic animal, and so many a man who thinks ho  ia getting a thrifty, economical wife finds  out, when he has got it home, that ho  has acquired a Shopper instead; and as  it is impossible to trade ono off, or even  give it away, his plight is a sad one.  A Shopper is the most expensive pot  in the world to.keep. A small and insignificant looking one, with an appetite no  bigger than a bird's, costs more to maintain than a herd of elephants or a menagerie of carnivorous beasts. This is  owing to tlieir unfortunate habit of going off on buying raids. Whether science  will ever be able to find a virus that will  inoculate Shoppers against the bargain  rabies, as dogs are inoculated against  hydrophobia, it is impossible to say. You  can always tell when a man owns a  Shopper hy the way his trousers bag tit  tbe knees and his shoulders hump over.  ���������** ,,_  Tht Soulful Lady.  and which \>criv.i:.:es the body and'  ������0������* ot the average h*:roi:re of the modern novel.

The penalty for being beautiful  would seem to be more exactlns and  more disagreeable, than the disappointments experienced by the ugly- It is  because the modern heroine of books,  or of the stage, is descriL-ed as a sort  of daughter of the gods in form ami  build and looks that you take Interest  in her and follow her doings, her sufferings, through every page of a novel  or through every scene and act of a  play.

There is recorded  in the unwritten archives of inearly every village such a story as that told  in one form or another.  But this ls not the story of a village"  merely; it is tSe history of the world-  It was this evil fate of beauty that  wrecked Cleopatra, who in turn wrecked Marc Antony, broke the heart of  Octavia and brought ihe Ttiorrors of -  civil -war upon imperial Rome. Tho  great Julius fell a victim to her exquisite charms at a single interview.  Cleopatra was a beatuiful and -magnificent creature, and her charms never failed to captivate and conquer  those who passed before her. She w,-������  not only all this, but her pers^nsi  beauty seemed to have influenced her  mind intellectually in a marked degreo|  for she was a woman of verj- high at<,  talnments. She was as intelligent ag,  she was beautiful. She was a capital  musician, skilled in several languages,  a good singer and a brilliant conversationalist. Ko woman Jjas surpassed^  herjn cunning.

As the room has been  whitewashed several times, thu autograph no longer exists. One day, writes  a traveler who is touring Southern Europe, I heard a soulful lndy importuning  a guide to show her this autograph; he  would cheerfully have accommodated her,  but there had been no autograph there  since ho was born. Still she .was so soulful, and yearned so for the autograph,  that I wrote one.myself for her in pencil  near whero she was searching. When  tho soulful lady found it she burst into  truch a torrent of emotional rhapsody  that I felt more than repaid. These littlo acts of kindness as we go tlirough  tbo world are far loo rare.  This same soulful lndy subsequently  pointed out to her companion a blank  white wall down irr Granada, whicli was  covered with round black spots.  "Lookl" she cried, enthusiastically,  "look at those apertures! * Evidently  they are shot-holes-���������probably made by  ;unnon-bull3 fired in tire wars waged by  tho Moorish kings with Ferdinand and  Jq-ibclla. 13 it not quite too interesting?"  It struck mo us being so, particularly  as the shot-holes wore so clear and.  sharply defined. Tliey seemed a little  recent. So I asked our guide Juanito  what the black spots were.  "Those round blac-k spots, senor?"  said he. "Oh, thnt is a hat factory, and  those are new sombreros hanging up in  the sun to dry."  The man "said: '"I want a  subscription, Mr. Greeley, for a cause  which will prevent a thousand of our Icl-  low-heings from going to hell." Greeley  shouted: "I will not give you a cent.  There don't half enough go there now."  As Greeley wns a Universalist, this reply  was not so severe as it sounded.  A certain Yankee woman.the wife of ;a  former (representative in Congress and  minister abroad, who now aims at soei-U  leadership in the mo3t exclusive and toplofty circles of Washington, D.C.; is noted  for her love of display and her penchant  for wearing about all the jewels she can  bear up under." One recent night she  gave a dinner. Several members of the  diplomatic set were present. Madame  was in high feather, and she also wore a  diamond tiara and several strings of  pearls around her neck. (-During the evening she complained of feeling a bit chilly  and told one of the servants to call her  maid.  said to have shivered a "trifle, and es  claimed: "Susotte, I am sojcold; please  get me another string of pearls."  An amusing illustration of the linguistic caparbiSty of the educated Chinaman comes from' Berlin. When the Kaiser complimented the new Chinese JJilin*  ister on his excellent German, the man  from thc Orient replied: *'I can do .better  ���������I can speak the Berlin dialect. One  day, during the occupation of Pekin, I  encountered a number of your Majesty's  soldiers, one of whom, thinking that I  would not understand him, took tihe lib-,  erty to address nre as follows: 'Wait,'  you Chinese baggage; if ever I catch you  in tlie dark I will twist your queue for  you!' 'Shut up, you Berlin weiss beer-  pot,' I replied in his own vermicular, 'or  I will knock all your teeth into your  bread-basket.' Your Majesty ought to  have seen the soldiers' faces," concluded  the minister. "If you yourself had addressed them at that moment without  warning, tihey couldn't have - been more  astonished and frightened."  A new application of the rule of proportion between labor and wages is illustrated in a little story told bv a representative of the house of Witwark.  -The.leader-of-a certain-band,-who**was re-^  hearsing one of their publications,  stopped the music abruptly and frowned  at a stout little fellow wh'o was putting j  I Empress of Rome.

I'Vir fully five minutes  the large audience listened with  breathless attention to n masterly  description whicli only one thoroughly  (pialifled irr voice arrd elocution could  have made attractive; and at the closo  a. round of applause such as is rarely  heard from n. .Brandon audience, denoted the hearty appreciation elicited."  ft will be a, pleasure to our renders  also to know that several of the old  company art* with hirrr including  Clilfor'd Lane Bruce, I'Ycd Roland,  Win.
