MINING  ASSOCIATION  Election of Officers.���������Vancouver  Decided on for Their Next  Convention.���������Dominion Minister of Mines Wanted.  . The Mining Association met last  week in Victoria and account it as  one of thoir most successful conventions.  A committee from the association  waited on the government and asked  for an outline of modifications they  proposed to the-two per cent, tutt and  the government in reply thanked the  committee and said they would be  glad of suggestions for an alternative  to the tax mentioned.  The. Convention also passed a, resolution-urging the Dominion ��������� Govern  ment to appoint a minister of mines  from the Pacific Coast. Senator  Templeman's name was mentioned in  connection with the matter.  Another resolution urged the government to issue crown grants for  mineral claims within fifteen days  after application had been made for  the same.  Another resolution asked that  passenger steamers be allowed to cairy  explosives   under proper restrictions.  Messrs. Keen and Hobson were  reelected president and -vice-president  respectively, amid great enthusiasm,  rind Rowland Ma'jhin, resident vice-  president, vice D. XV. Higgins.   ���������  The electoral district representatives  on the executive were elected as'  follows: Atlin, J. H. Brownlee;  Cariboo, John^Hopp; Cowichan, P. ,T.  Peru-son;' Grand Forks, George W.~  liurnberger; Nelson, Leslie Hill:  Rossland, E. B.. Kirby; Revelstoke,  W. M. "Brown;, Vancouver, _R. P.  McLennan; Victoria', H. Dewdney;  Yale, A. E. Howse; Trail, D. . W.  Moore.  utmost to enliven and further the interest iu mining.  Action was taken towards incorporation and a special committee in Victoria was formed to look after that  point.  The question has arisen here as well  as elsewhere : "What hus the Mining  Association dono ?" Well, when we  consider the obstacles it has had to  contend with, it has certainly done  well to exist at all, Up till hardly it  year ago B. C. lias been without a  government and even now, owing to  the long hopelessly tangled affairs of  the Province, the present government  is just/getting on its feet. Time it  must take to p-et things in working  order and already,' we see vast benefits  from the well directed, and energetic  efforts put forth by the Hon. Mr.  McBride and his ministry. Heretofore  it bus been utterly useless for capital  to invest in B. (1. as the province had  no government and was subject to tho  influence of any Tom, Dick or Harry  who might chance to be in power for a  month or two and mining regulations  particularly might make a dozen  changes a year.  We are thankful that this state of  things is reversed and that wo now  bave a stable government with a good  working majority, and regulai ity and  fairness in mining laws will be one of  the government's chief aims.  In conclusion we would urge upon  the citizens of Revelstoke and  district  o  the great importance of this industry  to our Province and tp supplement the  generous efforts of Mr. Brown on  behalf of our local mining branch so  that when the next mining association  meeting is called instead of the small  attendance at the last meeting there  will be tieble the membership of 100 of  last year.  DELIBERATE  FALSEHOODS  The Editor of the Mail Endeavors to Score Political  Opponents by Publishing  False Statements.  MINES, LIMITED  B- C. Mining Association.  We have had an interview with Mr.  Brown the representative of this district at the general convention held in  Victoria, since his return from thc  coast. The constituency of Revelstoke  at large and tbe local mining association are certainly greatly indebted to  Mr. Brown that such an able and well  versed mining man as he is, was theie  in the interests of this,district.  Had itnot happened that Mr. Brown  was over in Oregon on business and  returned to Victoria in time for thc  convention the local branch here  would not have been represented. On  arriviug in Victoria hc fully expected  to meet the delegates from Revelstoke  bat none showed up. However when  the convention was called and a resolution passed authorising the president  to select a committee to investigate  the credentials of the several delegates.  Mr. Brown was one chosen on that,  committee thus making it easy for  "hinrtcrstand^as=delegate=-froirKRevel-  stoke. The convention adjourned and  later when the Provincial Executive  was being nominated Mr. Brown stated  that as he was the only delegate present from Revelstoke he could make no  nominations. It was, however, urgently requested by several members that  hc stand and he was unanimously reelected. From the Provincial Executive was chosen the Parliamentary  Committee as follows: W. M. Brown,  Mr. Edgar Dewdney. Clive Phillips-  Wooley, D. W. Moore, A. C, Gait,  Colin F,'Jackson, C, H. Dickie, E. H.  Croasidaile and Harry G. Leamen.  This is the most important committee of _the whole as it will meet the  Government to confer on the best  possible method to be pursued by the  government to facilitate this chief  industry of the Province.  Mr. Brown has done much for the  local branch here. He has attended a  number of other branch conventions  entirely at his own expense and when  the question of the $2000 deficit came  up in Kamloops, and it was decided to  assess,each local branch in proportion  to its memtrership, Mr. Brown made  out his own personal cheque to the  amount of $40, the proportion the  then membership of 100 of .our local  branch was called upon to pay. Not  only does the Association here stand  indebted to him to that amount in  cash but is also responsible to liim  that any interest whatever, in the  local branch has been kept alive.  The recent convention says Mr.  Brown, was the most successful they  have yet had, all leaving with a renewed resolution to go back to their  several local  branches   and  do their  Arranging, for Work on Their  Property ��������� Some Particulars  .about the High Grade Imperial Group.  tThe New Imperial Mines, Limited,  with head offices in this city, has just  been formed for the purpose of acquiring the Imperial group of three claims  owned by D. Woiseley and situated on  the Iliecillewaet river in the Revelstoke mining division. The capital of  the company is $100,000, in shares of  .$50 each, which are now being offered  to the public at par.  The Imperial group is located about  twenty miles north of Albert Canyon  station on the C. P. li. and is reached  by a good wagon road that can be  used all the year round extending from  Albert Canyon to within a few hundred feet of the workings. The work  already done on the group consists of  tunnels and diifts of 100 feet in length,  a shaft of 22 feet on the vein and the  vein stripped on the surface for over  200 feet.   The.pre. from tins; groupJsespjicjally  In his issue of the 20th February the  editor of the Kootenay Mail, in order  to make a political point against the  member for this riding, Mr. Taylor,  and the McBride government, deliberately lied. The editor of the Mail  said : '',  "Not only aro the appropriations for  this riding only about half of former  years, but even Hurry Wright, the  weakest man iu the AlcBride following,  has been ablo to get 25 per cent more  by way of appropriations for hi.s constituency of Trail than Mr. Taylor the  government whip has obtained for the  large and important Revelstoke riding;  and Minister Green has got about  twice as much for the Kaslo constituency."  The real facts of the matter accord,  ing to the official publication of this  year's estimates are as follows :  Mr. Taylor, Revelstoke $15,500  Mr. Wright, Ymir $10,000  Mr. Green, Kaslo $12,500'  We would suggest to the failing  memory of the author of the above  the quite recent sub-division of this  riding into something like half what  it was. The appropriations obtained  by Mr. Taylor were therefore naturally less than formerly on account of  the smaller district but were proportionately much greater than those  allotted in former years. Wliei e there  is such a glaring proof of the falsity of  such a statement as tho above we are  led to question the sanity of the producer. At any rate as the day of the  anniversary of ��������� the famed George  Washington is near at hand we would  advise our worthy friend the editor of  the Kootenay Mail to duly celebrate  this great 'waif and turn over about  17 new leaves.

Arrangements are now being made  to cany on the work of development  this coming year, and this work will  be under the direction of Mr. Woiseley, who located the property, and  who has disposed of it to the company,  receiving as payment shares in tho  company, thereby showing his'belief  in thc property to-be genuine. Tlie  ^directors are all local people and there,  are no paid officials so. that every  dollar- will be spent in development  work. The company are now offering  250 shares at $50 each, 25 per cent  down and balance in three, six and  nine months. There is no better proposition before the investing public pf  British Columbia today and, in ��������� the  opinior. of the Herald, purchasers of  New- Imperial Mines, Limited, stock  have the very best possible chance to  make good returns on tlieir money.  If is estimated that about 1300 men  are at present employed in the mines  and smelters of the Boundary district.  The monthly pay roll is upwards of  $140,000. In the spring the wages will  approach an average at the rate of  $2,000,000 annually. All miners in the  Boundary section receive $3.-50 per  8 hour day underground, or 10 hours  above. Shipments for the past week  average 17,850 ore tonnage. The great  bulk of this goes to the Granby  smelter.  City School Report.  The annual school report published  by the Superintendent of Education  Alex. Robinson, B. A., is at hand.  The report on the Revelstoke school  by David Wilson, is as follows:  "Inspected December Sth and Sth,  1902, aud April 22nd, 1903; 221 pupils  present. On occasion of second visit  tone of school had been greatly raised;  careful supervision of whole school by  principal; improvement in every respect in first division, which is mado  up of passed entrance pupils and senior  classes; second division in charge of  substitute. Senior classes, fair .work,  but teacher unable to retain attention  of pupils; intermediate classes in third  division; good order and careful  teaching. Fourth division with intermediate, and junior work in fair  condition; large pupils for advancement. Fifth and sixth divisions with  junior classes only, show 'progress;  teachers endeavoring to make lessons  interesting as well as instructive;  supplementary���������reading���������introducedr  Many of the school-rooms'tastefully  decorated with pictures and colored  drawings on blackboards.   In January.  1903, the Revelstoke school was moved  into it line brick building, erected on  the old school site, which is about  midway between the-old and the new  town. This building contains eight  class-rooms, and is not only well  constructed but well designed 'for  school purposes. Each room is supplied with a large closet, or book-case,  to hold apparatus and books;' stall*  already looking forward lo formation  of school library and museum."  The teachers at time of inspection  were:  1st Division���������E. E. Miller.  2nd       "     ���������Miss A. Smith.  3rd       "     ���������Miss S. V.

The staff should feel justly proud of  the above encouraging report as many  of ithe districts were scored heavily.  Since this inspection Miss Robinson  has given up her position, Miss Atkinson taking her place.  'There is also now an additional  division with Miss Hobbs as teacher.  Curling.

Fish River Gold Camp in a  Flourishing Condition���������Road  Building���������Daily Mail   Service  ��������� Wanted���������Dredging.  [SPECIAL correspondence.]  CAjrBORNis, B. C, Feb. 20:���������During  the past-week business has been brisk,  consequent upon the Great Northern  Mines, Limited, and the Calumet <fc B.  C. Gold Mines, Limited, disbursing  some ijiS.OOO in checks. The financial  clouds that for a time were hovering  over the camp are clearing away and  the citizens generally are at last awaking to the fact thai Fish River camp is  going to take its place in the front  rank of the gold producing camps of  tho Province.  Besides the two pay-rolls mentioned  Camborne receives much financial  benefit froni the dilferent lumbering  outfltsem ployed _along -the Fisli riye^r.  It is announced that the Harbor Lumber- Company will erect a new modern  mill at this point to replace the one  recently destroyed. It will lie located  on Fish river and will add a considerable pay-roll.  Your correspondent learns that tbe  $2,000 conditionally appropriated by  the government toward the construction of the Fish rivor road beyond  Camborne to the mouth of Boyd creek  will Ire turned over to the Harbor  Lumber Company who'have undertaken to build the road. It is to be  constructed on the west side of , the  river and a bridge will bc built iu the  vicinity of Floyd creek.  An agitation has beerr started for  the purpose of circulating petitions  here, Ferguson, Beaton and Trout  Lake City urging the government to  establish a daily mail service in the  Upper fjiirdeau. At present there is  a three-times-a-week service and to  say the least, considering the importance of the various towirs, the mining  and lumbering industry, it is inadequate.  A petition is in circulation between  here and Beaton addressed to Hon.  W. A. Galliher, M. P., requesting him  to use his influence with the Dominion  Government for the purpose of having  the river approach to Beaton made  navigable. -At the" present time it is  necessary to go nearly three-quarters  of a mile beyond Beaton to high water  landing. It is figured Witli the aid of  the government dredge that the cost  of doing this work would be but a  trifle and would effect a great saving  financially to shippers and the public  generally. Already over 100 voters  have signed, including the numerous  crews of loggers employed between  the two places. This is something  that has been urged time and again,  and Mr. Galliher though promising to  use his influence, at the time of his  election, failed to keep his pledge.  The dredge has been laid up at different times, with the crew idle, and  pay going on, when it could have been  I profitably employed at Beaton.  Whileour ladies team did not bring  hack   victory   yet  they established a  reputation   of   the  best for playing a  clean lady-like game.   There, was some ������������������  'distention .-is to the*advisibilitvvof tlie  ladies going down to Rossland" to play-  but  from   the   most  dignified wav iir  which they conducted themselves there-  can be no question   as   to anything in. ,  the least   out of   the way.    Rossland.'  I people one  and   all complimented the'  Revelstoke   girls  on" their    pleasing,  womanly   behaviour.     On   Saturday  evening the teams lined up as follows -.  ROSSLAND , REVELSTOKE  Mai'3'Milne Goal  N. Dunne  E. Blnckmau Point.. .E. Pcttipiece  M. Govinan. .Cover Point. V. Coleman  F. Honey Centre B. Sawvei-  E. Demuth.. .Right Wing A. Brack  Edna Honey... .Rover M. Buck:  K. Hamilton. .Left Wing... M. Corley  The teams played 30 minutes each  way and the score totalled ' 6 to 1 in  favor of Rossland, Miss Sawyer scoring  the one goal for Revelstoke.  Perhaps the main fault in the play  of Revelstoke was that their -whole  attention seemed turned' to the defense and they bunched themselves  around their own goal, not going out  to check the rushes of the Rossland  forwards, thus allowing them to shoot.  at close range.  But under the instruction of their  coach, Mr. Bews, this little defect was  remedied irr the Monday night game,  when with the exception of one or two  changes on the Rossland 7, the line up  was the same as Saturday.  The girls showed in  this last game  Avhatajittle.rir:iictise_h;id done for them   and Rossland was certainly up against  the real thing.  The score resulted in a tie the order  of the goals being the following;  1 Rossland, 2 Revelstoke, 3 Revelstoke. 4 Rossland, 5 Rossland, 0 Revelstoke, 7 Rossland, 8 Revelstoke,  The ladies speak very highly of the  courteous reception they received in  Rossland and also of the delightful  way in which tliey were chaperoned  by Mrs. Bews.  Tomorrow night a match will bo  played for the city championship���������  C. P. R. versus City. The teams will  be picked from the following:  C. P. 11.���������Wood. Barber. Allen, Mc-  Cann. Calder, Chambers, Bowden, and  O. G. .McDonald.  City���������Wickens, Swan, Watt.Allum,  XV. Bews. H. Bews, Edwards, H.'Sawyer, and Armstrong.  ��������� It will be seen that neither team has  the advantage and as both have been  desirous of proving their superiority  for some time an exciting game may  be lookhd for. Game will tie called at  8 o'clock sharp. Admission 25 cents,  to all, which, will include one hour's  skating.  .JWar Notes.

The Australian "Review of Reviews"  for September, just to hand, contains a  vivid account of a remarkable disaster  which occurred recently in New Zealand:  Waimangu geyser, llotorua, New Zen-  land, ia one of the most remarkable geysers in the world: a lake of boiling wator, black and threatening, that, at irregular intervals, shoots up into space a  vast column of water, mud and stones  to a height sometimes of over 1,000 feet.  It ia aimply ono of the wonders of the  world.    It is situated on a crater chain.  which wns formed hy the great Tarawcra  emotion   rift.     One   photograph   taken  while it waa playing shows liquid mud  rising   to  a height   estimated  at   1,800  feet.   The immense stone, shot up hun*  dreds of feet, as shown on  the photograph, was afterwards found to measure  12 feet by S feet.   The steam cloud from  the geyser can be seen thirty miles away.  One feature is the echelon discharge of  many of tho shots.   The first might send  ���������vtones and mud perpendicularly, 00 that  they all fall back irrto the crater.   The  second   might   come   nt  an  angle,   and  bombard   the bank  whore    the  victims  stood.   On Sunday afternoon, August 30,  a group of tourists were wailing to secure a, snapshot  of thc  next  eruption,  -when  a   dreadful   discharge   ol"   boiling  water and irnrd took place, and four persons���������two  of  them   young  ladies,  and  one of them a well-known grrido���������were  La grippe, pneumonia and lail-a  enza eften leave a natty cough  when they're gone.

That flne old ceremony, the bringing  tn ot the uoar's head, is observed at  Quean Victoria's table at Rugby,  Eton, Vi .nchs'-'i'.v and Harrow, and at  Oxford and Cambridge Unl   <rsities.

Here is a   description of  -.the incident by an eye-witness:  "My sister and myself had been staying atYRotorua since Jlonday last. .Our  first view of the giant geyser at Waimangu was obtained on Tuesday. There  was then not a ripple on it.    XVe made  up  our minds  that  we  worrld  viat  it  again, and we did so on Sundaj*, aceom-  ;panying a fairly large party, consisting  for the most part of tourists.   The geyser was then playing gently.   We took  -up a position near the shelter sired and  watched  the  jets   of  water  shoot  upwards.   About 12.30 n shot went up to a  height of 400 feet or thereabouts.   After  crossing to ;tlie far side and inspecting  the display from numerous positions, we  come back, passed over the, bridge, and  stood  on a slight  projection.    Looking  over the edge of the geyser; we were re-,  warded by seeing an outburst from the  geyser reach a height of SOO feet.   Other  shots  went higher still.    It was a stupendous spectacle.    About 3 p.m. I no-:  tlced  a party  of ladies and ..gentlemen,'  who   had   arrived   at   Waimangu  about  2.30 or 2.45.    They included, the  Misses  Nicholls, Joseph V.'aihriek and Mr.?Ale-  Naughton.      The    ladies and gentlemen  took up a position  some forty or fifty  yards in front of where I was standing.  They had cameras with them, and were  evidently. bent  on getting snapshots of  Waimangu in action.  "At twenty '"minutes past, three the  geyaer sent up a huge columm .'of;iboiling  mud and scalding water that spread out  over; a wide area; For perhaps rather  more than o. minute the entire scene  was enveloped in darkness, made all the  more terrifying .by reverberations as of  thunder amdavibrationthat filled the  atmosphere and caused the ground under  our feet to ���������tremble... I called] out to my  sister tb run for her life, and I fled after  her. Fortunately, we had, a clear, path  in front of us, and wecgot away just in  time, a huge fragment of Toek falling  within a yard of us. The eruption lasted  for about two minutes.   :  "The diaippcaranceof Misse3 Nicholl3,  Mr. J. Warbrick and  Mr,. MaNau.ghton  eaused the utmost consternation.   They,  had apparently attempted to reach  thc.  path,   but  without  success,   the boiling  torrent sweeping them into the seething  cauldron   below.     Search-."was   at   once,  made  for   the   victims.    Warbrick,   the  guide,_ assisted by a"number'of others,  including myself, took part in,this painful task.    Tiie first. ouuy recovered was  that   of   Mr.   McNaughton.     This   was  found about half a'inile from the bridge  j in about twelve, feet  of. water.    It.'was  -.lid ; -terribly db-Gg-ircd,. tbe  head  in  particu-  ���������_7;t    iar  being-  b.id'y   c;:t.

Mrs. Xich  "Ollie" James, the giant from Kentucky, who is now n member of Congress,  was making a political speech. "I want  to ask you a question," shouted a mar.  in the rear of the hall. "Well, my  friend," n-dcod Mr. .Tames, blandly, "what  is it?" "1 want you to toll this gathering what is the difference between Gro^  vor. Cleveland nnd Theodore Roosevelt?"

"My father's the best man  in the world," said one little girl; "he is  a minister. He makes people go tc*  church." "Mine is the best," piped rrp  another; "Ire's a doctor. He makes sick  people well so they can go to church."  Three or four more enlarged upon thc  benefit tbe world derived from their  fathers, when finally a sweet, blue-eyed  little girl said: "My papa's tho best of  all. He's a poet."- A poet," said another, in sympathetic surprise; "why, a poet  isn't a profession!   It's a disease!"  One evening, during his recent visit to  England, Rear-Admiral Charles S. Cotton w-as entertained at dinner. Among  the other guests wore the Bishop of Durham, a clergyman noted for his wit, surd  a' millionaire-manufacturer, a stout 111 in  with a loud, coarse laugh, who ate and  drank a good deal, and who' cracked  every little while a stupid joke. He. did  not know the bishop from Adam, but  seeing his clerical garb, he decided he  must bo a parson, and that here was a  chance for him to poke a little fun at  the parson's trade. "I have three sons,"  ho began, in a loud tone, nudging his  neighbor and winking toward the bishop  ���������"three fine bids. They are in''trndo.  I had always said that if I ever had a  stupid son I'd make a parson of him."  The millionaire roared out his discordant  laugh, and the Bishop of Durham said to  him,--.with a quiet smile: "Your father  thought differently from you, eh 1"  ItYis Ahe icustorn in Abyssinia for all  foreign missions to bring presents Y to  King Menelik. Tlie French, some years  ago, brought a lot of Parisian mechanical toys���������sheep that squeaked, pigs that  ran about on their hind legs, and dolls  that talked. Tlrey thought such things  would be certain to tickle the fancy of  ft dusky king. Menelik looked at them  for a moment with disgust and rage,  then he thrust them aside. "Do you  think," he aaked, "that I am a child or  a savage, that I should delight?in toys?"  The Russian and English emissaries  showed a truer insight into his character.  They brought hinr Maiiser;pistols, revolvers, and the latest and best rides they  could buy. Ho was delighted.". "These  are gifts worthy to' be received by a  warrior and a king," he declared. The  influence'.-: of the Russians and English  over Menelik dates from that lucky incident, -but''the French have always been  badly represented rat "his , court.

The Electric Light  Company find, however, a very good purpose is being accomplished by having the  art showrooms in their new ollice building in Adelaide street cast thrown open  to the public. It is their intention to  havo an exhibit of the latest things In  electric fixtures there, in order that Toronto people may have the benefit of a  large variety of beautiful pieces to select from. Their wish is that everyone  who takes an interest in the artistic and  beautiful should call and see their dis*  play.

Not far from the spot where William Jones had lauded, and removed  tome little disjtnncu from the deserted  village,, witb its desolate main street  and roofless habitations, there stood  a low, one-storied cottage, quite us  black and forbidding- looking as any  of the abandoned dwellings in its vicinity. Over tbe door was placed,  like a sign, the wooden figure- head  of a young woman, naked to the wni.t,  holding a mirror in her hand and regarding herself with remark:: b'e complacency, despite tlie fact that accident had deprived her of a nose and  one eyo, and that the beautiful red  complexion and Jat black hair she had  once possessed had b;en entirely washed away by the action of the elements,  leaving her all over of a leperous  pallor. The rest of the building, as  I havo suggested, was of sinister  blackness, though here nnd there it  was   sprinkled   with   wet  sea-sand.  To this cottage William Jones ran  witb his treasure- trove, and, entering in without ceremony, found himself In almost total darkness; for tho  li^ht which crept through the black-  onod panes ot the small window was  only just sufficient to make darkness  visible. . But this worthy seaside  character, having in addition to a  cats predatory instincts, something  of a oirt's power of vision, clearly  discerned everything in the chamber  he Just entered���������a rude, stone- paved kitohen, with an open fireplace  and no grate, black rafters over-  bead, from which suspended sundry  lean pieces of bacon, a couple of  wooden chairs,, a table, and, in one  corner, a sort of bud in tbo wall,  where a human figure was reposing.  Setting down the trunk on the floor  he marched right over to the bad,  and uncermoniously shook thc indi-  ���������> I lual- lying upon it, whom'he dis-  (overed to ba a man, muttering in a  hesvy sleep. Finding that he did  roi. wake with shaking William Jones  bjnt down and cried lustily in his ear:  "Wreckl wreck ashore]"  The effect was instantaneous. The  fbrure rose up in bed. dr**-clo.-,ing the  head and shoulders of a very old  man, who wore a red cotton nightcap, and whoso-hair and beard were  as  white as snow.  ".Eh? Wheei-f Wheer?" he cried, in  a shrill trehle, looking vacantly  around  him.  "Wake up, old "un!'' said William,  seizing him and shaking him again.  '���������It's  mo,  Wiljiam Jones.".  "William? Ls it n-.j son William?"  returned the old man, peering out into  the darkness.  "Yes, father-. Look ye now, you was  a-talkmg again in your sleep, you  was. A good thing no one heerd you  but your son William. Some o these  days you'll bo letting surnmat out,  you will, if you go on lr'io this."  The old man shook his head feebly,  then, clasping his bands together in  a kind of rapture, bc lookea at his  son and said:  "Yes, William, I was a-dreaming.  Oh, it was sucb a heavingly dream!  I was a-standing on the shore, William,' and it was a-b'owrng hard from  the east, and all at onee I see a  ship as hig as an lndiaman, como fn  wi all sail set, and go ashore; and I  looked round, Wi.liam dear, and there  was no one nigh but you and me;  and, when she broke up, I sec gold  and sliver and jewels come washing  ashore ju3t like floating weeds, and  the drowuded, every one of 'em, bad  rings   on    their      fingers,   and   gold  trunk��������� f.'sV' tnrou'jn a (!c:r .: L I je  brck of thr'. k.:c!K.-;i and cm ered an  i n.s r s'rrnmb.-r.

Placing the box down, Wiiliam  Jones carefully covered it witb a  portion of an old sail.  "It's summat, but it ain't much,"  he muttered, discor-tvnledly. "Lucky  them coast- guards didn't see me come  uahore. if they did. though it wouldn't signify; for whit's floating on the  sea  belongs to him .is finds it."  iA sound startled him as be spoke,  and, looking rou.id suspiciously, he  srrw Matt entering the room, loaded  wiih broke.li wood. Put sbe was not  alune; standing behind her in tho  shadow -was a man��������� nono other, indeed  than Monk, of Slonkshurst.  Whilo Mutt entered the room to  throw down her load Oi wood. Monk  stood in the doorway. His quick eye  had noted the movements, of father  and son.  "More prunder, William Jones?" ho  asked, grimly.  In a moment William Jones was  transformed. Tha keen    expres-e'oTi  of h's fac-2 changed to ono of mingled  stupidity and sadnces; he began to  whi ne.  "More-plunder, Mr. Monk?" he said.  "yo, no; /tlM days ."or t'.nding that are  gone. Matt an-1 me has been on the  shore forag.ng for a bit o' firewood  ���������that be all. -Put it down, Matt,  put it down."  Matt did as sh-ri was told; opeaiing  her arms, she threw hsr load inio a  corner o*' ttir* room- "then William  Jones hurried the while party back  :n;o tb,- kiiulmn.  The men seated -themselves on  be.iiehpss; but Matt moved abuut tbe  room to g.-t a light. The light as  welt ai Ci-e.i-ylh'ng else, was a living  illustration o.' lb-.* meanness of William Jon<".. "iit eonsistnd, not ol a  candle, but oi a long runh, which had  been gathered from the marshes by  Mall,,uiLd afterward dried and dipped  in   grease by   William   .Tones. Matt  lighted it and fix"d it in a little iron  niche which was evidently made for  lhe purpose, and which was altarhod  to a table near tha hearth. Wh������n the  worn: was ifinishied, she threw off bar  vhat and jacket, retired to the further  ond eif the hearth, and sat down on  the floor. '  During tne .whole oi! this time Mr.  Monk hod rbeen watching her gloomily; and ho had been watched in his  turn by William Jones. At last the  latter spoke:  "Matt's growed," said he; "she's  growed wonderful. Lord bless uy!  she's a toit changed sin' that nighi  when you ifound her down on the  shore. Why, her own friends wouldn't know iherl"  Mr. Monlr started and frowned.  "Her friends?" he said t��������� "what  friends?"  "Why, them as owns her," continued William Jones. "IE thoy wasn't  all drowned in the ship what she  she came ashore from, they must oa  somewheer. Mayhap some day they'll  find her, and reward ma for bringin'  Iher up a good gal��������� that's what I  alius tell her."  "So that's what you always tell her,  do you?" returned Monk, grimly.  -"Then you're a fool for your pains.  The girl's got no friends��������� haven't f  told you ithat beifore?"  "Certainly you have, Mr. Monk,"  returned William Jones,-meekly; "but  look ye now, I   think���������"  "You've no .right to think,'" thundered MonJc; "yuu're not paid for  thinking; you're paid for keeping tho  girl, and what more do you want?  Matt," he continued, In a sortor tono,  "come to me."  "Where  have you  been  to-day," ho  said, "to have on that Lrock?'_*  "I put it on to be took!*'   '        '  "To   be took?" repeated  Monk.  "Yes," returned Matt; "to have my  likeness   tooU.      There     be  a    painter  chap here .that lives in a   carl;     he's  took it."  It wa.s curious to note'the changes  in Mr., Monk's .ace. At first he tried  to appear amiable; then bis face gradually darkened .into a look of angry  suspicion. Malt never ones withdrew her eyes from him ��������� his very  presence seemed to arouse all that  was bad im heT; and Bhe    glared    at  locks     in  iike yoa, Matt.      Do you uaUer-vtauel,  I  like you?"  *So unzious did ho r.cnm to imi-'rcs.-,  this upon her, that In pui bis arm  around her waist, drew her town ni  him, and tissod ber on the. cheek, a  ceremony he bad never performed  before. Cut Matt t-eomod by no  means to appreciate the. honor; a.s hi'j  lips touched ber checks she shivered,  and when he release.'' her she began  rubbing at .the platii a.s l, to wipe the  touch   away.  Mr. MonK then b*.:t the. cottage,  tarting William Jones with him. Ten  minutes taior .William Jones return"d  aloae.  "Where-a  be?" n!,ked   Matt.  "Meumn' Mr. Monk, Matt ��������� he. be  gone!" said William Jones.  "Gono !or good?" demanded Matt,  impatiently.  '*No, he ain't, Matt; he'll bo down  hero to-morrow, bc will; and you'd  best bo at tome!"  Matt safd nothing this time; sh ���������  only turno.t awuy sullenly aud shrugged  her shoulders.  "Mutt," said William Jo:ix*s, presently,  "Well?"  "Mr. Monk scorns uncommon fond of  you,  ho do."  Matt reflected for a momont, th.-n  sho replied: >,  "I wonder what he's fond o* run  for, William Jonas?*'  "Well, I dunno; 'cause be is, I suppose," returned WU i.iui Jones, having no more logical answer at bis  command.  "Tutn't that," said Matt; "he don't  love mo 'cause I'm me, William Jours.  There's summat else, and I should  just like to know what that summat  is,  I   should."  William Jones looked at her, conscious that there was a new development of sagacity in her character, but* utterly * fit a loss to understand what tbat new development  meant.  OrTAMER -VI.       .

"Well, you're awake now, old 'un;  so jump up. I've brought summat  home. Look sharp, arid get a light.'

Having gor tired  of tHuis* characteristic , occupation,  he at length sat down and began lo  put a few loucbas to tho portrait.  Seeing that he was unconscious of her  approacth, Matt crept up quietly behind him and took a 'pe,ap( at tlio picture.

"Then  we will get on."  He removed from his easel and carefully covered the portrait upon which  he had been working. Then ho put  up a fres'h cardilxx'trd, and sat down,  inviting Matt to do tho same.  With-.the'.disappearance of the Sunday clobbes, ihe "girl's stiffness seemed orr.helve disappeared also,nnd she  boca-me again a veritable child' of  |Nature. She looked like a shaggy-  young pony fresh from a, race on the  mountain- side, as she-'threw herself  on the ground in an altitude wllich  was all picturesriue.ness and beauty.  Then, wkh her plump, sunburnt hand  she began to carelessly pull up the  grass, while bur brack eyes searched  alternately tire prospect and tlio  painter's face.  Presently she spoke:  "lie says you're u pryin' scoundrel,"  she said.  BririKley looked  up and smiled.    '  "Who ��������������� r.:-. Man. ?"'  "Mc.

But it  would bo useless 'to lay title caso before her, since, if she.is the key, she  is quite unconscious of it herself."  He threw down his brush, rose and  -stretched himself, and said:  "Look here, Matt, I'm" tired of  work. The sun shining on those sandhills and on the tar-off sea is loo  tempting. I shall go for a walk,  and you, if you are in the mood, shall  be my guide."  She evidently was in the mood, for  she was on her feet in an instant.*  "All right, master," sho said, "I'll  go."  "Very  well.   Tim, 'bring forth some  refreshmo'ut.      We will refresh the inner   man   and girl   before  we  start."  Tim  disappeared  into  tho Caravan.  Presently   ho   reappeared   bearing     a  small tray, some biscuits and u   couple of glasses.   This he placed  on the  cainp-Hlool, which his master had just  vacated, and  which,  when nol.  iu  use  as a   seat, served as a   table. Brink-  ley  poured  out'two glasses ot   milk,  then,   looking   at   Matt,   he   held   the  little glass on high.  "Brandy,   Mall?"        ,','.  She  shook   her  head.  "Very  well, child;   1 think you are  wise.     Here, tako the milk nnd drink  confusion   lo   your  enemies!'-  Matt took trie glass of milk and  drank it down, while Brinkley hastened to dilute and dispose of (he olher. Then ho gave some orders to  Tim  and thoy started off.  To the sand-hills, they wended their  way. Having gamed tlrem, they followed.a route which Matt" knew full  well, and which soon brought them  to the narrow foot-path - beyond.  During tiro walk r--ho was singula rly  silent, and Brinkley seemed to be  busily trying to work oul. some abstruse problem which bad taken po.--  sessron of hr's brain.  When they had followed tlie footpath for some distance rind .had  gained^ the greensward on tho top of  the  cliffs,   the .young, man threw  himself  upon^?thegrass^arid--invited  Matt  to do"- tho snme.      It ,was very  pleasant  there,  soothing, both  to  the  eye  and  to  the  mind.  "Do you see that house standing  all by itself, closo to shore?" said  Matt, pointing to the'cottage where  she Uvod. "Tim 'belongs to William  Jones, 'And, look Yye now, there be  William Jones on the rocks!'*  > Looking down, Brinkley behold a  figure moving along the rocks, just  .where the  water touched the edge.  "Very   lazy  of  William   Jones,'*   he  eaid.   "Why   isn't ibu at  work?'*  "At  work?'*  "Yes, tilling the fields or fishing.  By the way, t forgot to ask you, is  he a   fisherman!"  "No, he ain't," said Matt. "He's  a wrecker, ho ist"  . "A what?'- exclaimed Brinkley.  ' "A wrecker,'- continued Matt, ns  if wrecking was lire most nntrini'i".  cupaliori in the world. Brink'ry belied at her,' imagining ihal. who must  he practicing .some wild jolrn. ITo  had certainly heard of Wreckers. b*:t  he had always believed (hat 'li-y  were a species of bumani'.v wliivb hail  belonged,;;.to past cenlui's.  "That sen don't look u."-'v. do ii?"  she continued, pointir;.- nt,th'.> iiei*nn.  "But it is; therus'���������'r'v'ci otn 11��������� re,  whore the .'-.hips split, on: i.h*n tliey  go all to pieces a-id tho tilings come  ashore."  "An?l wirat becomes of all the  things,  Matt?"  "Some of 'em's stole, and some of  'cui's took by tne coast- guards. They  do say,'* she added, mysteriously, "as  there's lots o' things���������gold and silver���������bbl among th"in fi.-ind-hills. Re-  fore the coast- guards come all the  folk   was   wrei'R.-r.M.   like Wil!i:).������n  Jones, and they used to gel. what  come nsho'-e n.i.-l ih'.-y used to bi.le it  in   Ibe sand-hills."  ' "Indeed! Then, if that is the case,  .why don't tbey tako the treasure uo  and   turn it   into money.'"  "Why?      'Cause   r h"m  sand- hills   is  ' aiiiis   changing   auu   shifting     about,  tbey   are;   though   they   know       v.-'):  enough   tho   things   is   thero,   there s  no  findin    of   Vm!"  "'1 always thought William Jones  was poor?"  "So ho is, ho says!'' replied Malt;  "cause, though he bo alius foraging, hc don't find much now on account o-  them coast-guard chaps.''  After     tlrey     had   rested them  selves they werrl a little further up  the cliff, then they followed a nar-  iow winding path which brought  tnen to (he shore below. Here Matt,  who seemed to be pretty well grounded in tbe history of the plane, point-  bd him oul thu wondui.s of ibe coast.  She showed bim Ibe caves, which trn-  ditiou said had been formerly used  as wreckers haunts and lieasure-  utores, but which wero now washed  by tbe sea, and covered wiih slimy  weeds; then shu brought bim "to u  promontory wlrero tbey told ber rslrc  herself had been found. This spot  Urinkley examined curiously, then be  looked  at   tbo  girl. I  "I suppose you had clothes oa  whon you camo ashore, didn't you,  Matt?"'    ,   ,        I  "Why, of course I had. William  Jones   has   got   'om!'" ,  ,  "Has   he?   Where?'- *  "fn  his cave,  f expect."  *   "Hus cave!   Where is ihat?" asked  Brinkley, becoming  very much interested. '������������������''!.."  "Dunno,'* returned Matt; "perhaps  it's somewhere here about. I ve seen  William Jones come ubout here, I  have, but I never could track him!'*  -Matt's fnformntron on tbe subject  was so vague that it seemed useless  to institute a search; so, after a regretful look at the rocks. Brinkley  proposed that they should saunter  back   along   the  shore.  "By the way,'- said be, "1 want you  to Introduce me to William Jones.**.  "To William Jones?'  "Yes. Strange as the fancy may  seem to you, l shSuld like for once rn  my lifo to Btand face to face with a  real  live wrecker."  Thoy made their way back along  tbe coast, until they reached William  Jones   cottage.  "William Jones," said 3he, "hero  be   the  painterl"  By the light of the flickering rushlight Brinkley now looked about him.  At a glaace he noted some of the details of _ the queer iit Lie room; then  his eye's fell upon iho occupants  whom, from Malt's description, he  recognized as William Jones, and the  grizzly   author   of  his   being.  The old man, who, B.-ink'cy perforce admitted, certainly bore some  resemblance to the Re.nbrandtish bead  which Matt had recognized, sat dozing fitfully by tha hearth, whilo bis  son v.-as busily employed in mending  an  old  lantern.  Upon the entranoa of Brinkley, thc  lantern was quickly-thrown \ aside,  and AVilliain Jones, assuming a most  obsequious manner,' hastened to give  a welcooio to the stranger. Crink'.ey  was amused, tk accepted William  Jones- oHfer of a seat, then h? lit  up his brier-root pipe, an! "^-bi!e  smoking lazily, he pui n few que.---  tions to bis host. ' IVut if he expect-'  Rd to gain information of any kind  be was soon undeceived. William Jones  was no fool. Combined with excessrve  avarice, ho possessed all tbe cunning  of tha fox, and the moment be taw  that the stranger was pumping him,  he   was orr his guard.  Presently, however, his curiosity  gamed tho day. Categorically, in his  turn, he begun to question' Briuk-  ley   about   his   doings.  "1 suppose now. master," said he,  "you travel about a deal in thai  cart o' your'n?"  Brinkley explained that lhe "cart"  in. question 'had been in his possession  only a   few months.  "But I traveled a   good  deal beforo  I got it," tie explained.   "This    lime  last year I  was in Ireland."  "In  Ireland, master?"  "Yes, on the    west    coast;    do you  know it?"  William Jones shook his head.  "There be plenty wreck there, ain't  there?" said be suddenly.  "Wrecks'" repealed Brinkley.  "Yes, I've heard tell o' wonderful  storms and big ships breaking up.  Look ye now, they do tell wonderful  tales; and I wonder sometimes i������ all  ihey  Says be true."  Brinkley looked at his host for a  minute or so in silont wonder,.for the  little   man was transformed.  "Wreck!" said the father. "Ay, there  it be, driftin' in wi' the wind arrd the  tide, William��������� driftin' in wi' the  tide."  "Shut  up, old  man," said   William,  giving his father a   nudge; lh?;n turn-  iing^agatn=to^Brinkley,Jie^i&aid,^iBe=,  them tales true, master?"  "Bb? Oh, yes; perfectly true,"  said Brinkley, (being in a lively humor  and determined to give his host a  treat. * -  ���������  The expression in  tbe eyes, of   William Jones became even more greedy.  "P'raps," ihe said, "you've seen some  of them wrecks?"  "Dear me, yes," answered 'Brinkley,  determfned to give the reins to bis  imagination. "I've seen any number  of them. Huge ships broken up like  matchboxes, and every soul on board  them   drowned; then "afterward���������"  "Ah, yes, mister," said William  Jones, eagerly, as the other paused;  "arter���������"   *" ������������������*'.���������'  "Well, afterward, my friend, I've  seen treasures come ashore that would  have made you and me, and a dozen  oil'---   .-"tv lr, rich for life."  ...r, dear! and what become of ft,  -."stnr���������' toll mo that?"  ".What became of it?" repeated  Brinkley, whose imagination was be-  ginrirng to give way; "why, it wa.s  appropriated, of course, by the population." ���������'���������;.  . '"And didn't you take your share,  mister?"  "It" repeated Brinkley, who was  getting muddled; "well, iio;��������� firstly,  because. I did not wish to ��������� I bavoa  superstitious horror of wearing dead  men's unrigs; and secondly, because L  could not have dono iTrj had I wished.

"i suppose, rnlstor, there be no  coast- guard chaps there?" said Wiljiam .Tones.  "Oil. dear, -no! No coast- guards.'"  "Alii" s:,gru*d the ol-i man, coming  out of his'trance.

But whatever Matt knew "she evidently moaat to ktep to herself, for  sho gave no reply. Presently, after a  littlo more general conversation,  Brinkley rose to go.

But'  in a   irfco Matt Wa.s beside him.  "I'm gor rig to show you the way,"'  sha explained as sho wont out with  hrm Into .tho air.  "Whew!" said Brinkley whon (lmy  were lairly clear of the cabin; "the  open air is better lhan that den: but  then William Jones is very poor, isn't  he, Matt?"  "He says he is."  "But  don't you  believe it?"  "P'raps I do, and p'raps I don't; i-tg  don't matter to you, doo* it?"  "Not the least in the  world."  They went on for a Milla in silence;  then Matt, who had boon furtivclyi  watching his face all tho while, spoke  again:  "You ain't angry, are you, master?"  sho asked.  "I angry��������� what for?"'  '"Cause I  said tl������t  just  now."  "Dear me, no; whatever you might  say. Matt, .wouldn't oifend me."    *  If he expected to please her by thia  he was mistaken.  . "That's, cause you  don't care.  Well,  I   don't care neither, if you don't."  She ran a littlo ahead of bim, and  continued to precede Jrirn until she  gained the last sand- hill, and caught  a glimp36 of the Caravan. Then she  paused.  "You don't ,-want me to go no fur.  ther, do youi"  "No."  "All right��������� good by."  She gave a bound, "Ike a young  deer, and prepared to staTt for a  swift run back, but the young man  called her. '  "Matt, come her������!" -  Sho came up to him. He put his  arm about her shoulders, bent over  her upturned face, and kissed ber. In  her impulsive way, Matt returned the  kiss ardently; then, to her amazement, she gave one strange look into  his eyes��������� blushed violently, and  hung her head.  "Come, give me another, Matt," he  said.  But Matt would not comply.

Mali Grows Matrimonial. '**"  That night the young man of tha  Caravan had curious dreams, and  throughout them all moved like a presiding fairy, Matt of Aberglyn. Sometimes he was wandering on stormy  shores, watching ths wrecks of  mighty argons; again, ho was in  mysterious c.ivems underneath the  ground, searching for and finding  buried treasure; still again, he was  standing oil the decks oi Htorm- lossed  vessels, while the breakers thundered 0  close at hand, and the bale- fires burned on lonely headlands. But ac all  timss, and In all places, Matt was his"  companion.  And, curiously enough, Matt in his .  dream was verv different to the Matt  of waking reality: taller and brighter  ���������in fact as beautiful as a vision can  be; so that his spirii was full of a  strange sensation of love and pity,  and the touch of the warm little band  disturbed his spirit with mysterious  joy. So vivid did this dream become,  at last, that be found himself seated'  on a sunny jock by the s?a, by Matt's  side; and he was talking to her like a*  lover, with his arm around her waist:  and she .turned to him, with ber great  eyes frxed on his, and kissed him over ,  and over again, so passionately that ho  awoke!  It was .blowing hard, and the rain  was pelting furiously on the roof of  the Caravan. He tried to go to  sleep again, but tha face of Matt* (as  he had seen tt in his dream) kept Jirm  a long time awake.  "Sow youug  man,'- be said to himself,   "this   is  idiotic.

ADVERTISING IJ.  C.
We .1:0 in rtceipt of :r little pamphlet published by ' tiro C. P. H. descriptive of liritish Columbia :is a
mining, agricultural rind lumbering
centre. It relates particularly to tho
Kootenay and Boundary districts, i.s
neatly antl tastefully gotten up, niul
as a means of advertising om- immediate vicinity and surrounding country
it is certainly very useful.
This is only one of the many features
the Company lias introduced in its
endeavor to advertise and buildup
om- province- Unfortunately there
are some individuals and even somo
newspapers, political and otherwise,
���who have sought to minimize and
disclaim the fact that we reap untold
advantages from the enterprise rind
push of this great company. Tliey
have endeavored to show that the C.
P.K. Co. is- a huge, grasping, grinding,
soulless corporation, and ruining
of the country for the company's own
financial advancement. *'
Tlie  fallacy  and   falsity of  such a
presentation   i.s   an   axiomatic fact to
anyone* who  will stop to consider the
great   development   and -commercial
importance our province has achieved
solely through the efforts of the above
company   in   opening   up   to   us  the
abundant means of .transportation we
now enjoy.    Not only in tbe 'transportation system has the company labored
but it has  collected rill possible details
relative to the richness of the mineral
wealth, the   fertility   of   the soil, the
beautiful  climate, the '.extensive lumbering     possibilities   of     this     most
westerly province and published lhem
unsparingly   to   induce : settlors .'and
lioine-seekei-s to locate here.   The' plea
is   of   course   made that these.efforts
are   for   their'own-pecuniary-benefit.
Even   granting such, for we have not
yet   reached   the   milleiiiiiin  point in
rhe world's  history .'where either individuals or corporations labor- to-benefit
the  other party only, still the advanV
tages we have  derived from the C..P.
R. are the principle factors which have
made tliis   province what it is today.
"Whenever tlie natural resources of
this countiy  have  been  sufficient to
induce  outside  capital' to invest, tiie
company have  made that inducement
much  stronger   by   connecting   such
points  if  possible  with her   lines   of
railway.    Considering the circumstances and natural obstacles the lines of
communication    we    possess   in   the
Canadian   Pacific    railway  are    not
excelled   anywhere   and   equalled   iu
few portions of the globe.

medal by the Royal Society of London, England. It is said that this art

Scientific Society, and their cordial

Crririt- hns greatly plea.sed the French
and made them for the time ipritt*
forget the old national ill feeling.
Surely scientific advancement and t Ire
progress of education are greater
factors than any in the moulding of
nations.
Doubtless many are unaware of tire
nature of this elusive substance, and
as a matter of fact it i.s somewhat
hard to desci-ibe to those unacquainted
���with chemistry physics.
In appearance it is something liKe
sand in the day time while in the
darkness it gives oil a glow .similar to
phosphorous. Kvery hour it radiates
a quantity of heat capable of .melting
its own weight of ice, and alway.-
liolds a temperature some two or three
degrees above the surrounding air.
Ui-aniirm, an element which Iras
been known for some time, has the
power of emitting light and heat rays
or. technically speaking, radiactive
power, but Radium has this power
E 1X0,000 times greater.    It gives off

In the last issue of the Camborne
.Miner there is a plea for- a daily mail
service'. It seems that abuut .1, year
ago a petition .'iskingforsueh a service
was circulated through that district
receiving l.'!l .signatures and was sent
to Mi-. Galliher, iit. P., but unfortunately that was the. apparent end of it.
All are aware of the growing importance of lho vYViriiboi-no district,
including Trout Lake. IJenton, Comaplix and Kergusoii, and surely there,
is ample reason tlrnt a daily, instead
of the present, ln-i-wcc.l'ly service, is
not only their right but quite necessary. Considering the fact that runny
of our citizens have business interests
in the Camborne district, the introduction of a daily service there would
not only be of immense benefit to that
district but also of considerable importance to Revelstoke. We therefor
feel confident that the request of the

Loraino had given tho first  waltz to Dr. Stafford; ho regretted  .when  it  was ovor.  "ft is not- often I am favored  with so graceful a partner as yourself, Mrs. Ulvesford," ha said, gallantly, leading her to a seat in a  bowor of bending ferns -that arched  above one of the long, French -windows that led out  into tho porch.  .Loraine was albout to mako somo  light rejoinder, but tho words died  away on her lips in a- piercing scream  .which brought the guests hurriedly  about her as sho' pointed to tho window.  ���������There crouching close against the  dark pano, tbey beheld a white, wistful, beautiful face, fnnmed by long,  dark, disheveled hair, uind gleaming,  mournful   eyes.  ���������The white, cold snow on the ivy  vines, and the long, glistening bides formed a weird background tlc-rt  struck a subtle fear to tho hearts  of all   who gazed.  In an insiant flashed across Loraine's mind that beauli ul, foreign  face that hnd haunted hor so strangely  in   the  vine-covered   Alps.  The g-entlranon had started out to  search -Tor the owner of face which  when observed, had instantly disappeared. .  Lornine looked nround for Ulmont;  he (was   not  among   tham.  She heard  murmurs      from   tho porch  strange  without.  "Keep tho ladies back," the gentlemen wore saying; but tho ladies would  not tbe kept back; they would know  all   about   the   disturbance'.  Loraine, heedless of shawl or wr;vp,  mado lier way out to the group  hovering around some dark object lying upon  the snow.  The gentlcmieri entreated her to  return to the house.  "You will catch your death oi  cold, Mrs. Ulvosrord," they urged;  "see,   you   aro  shivering   now."  As Loraine persisted in seeing what  was tho matter, the group silently  made way for her.,  There was something in the si ill  beauty af tho white, upturned fact  lying there that touched a deep chord  in Loraine's heart as sho knelt down  in tho snow beside her. ���������        ���������  In after life people often spoke.  who  witnessed   that  sight,   of the  strange contrast they mndo. Loraine in her robe ot velvet, the flashing lights quivering on her flaming  jewels and on her golden hair, and tht  slight, delicate figure lying there  wrapped in the dark, snow-covered  cloak, the sweet face, perfect as it  carved in marble, on which the d.:rk,  silken lashes lay, seemed the face ol  a child; there was a pitiful expression  about the moutb, bard to see on onr  so young.   '  "Where is Dr. Stafford?" called  Loraine.  "I am here," he responded, promptly; "I have forced some wine down the  poor creature's throat; she will' soon  recover,   Mrs.   Ulvesford."  "Why Ls she not brought into thc  bouse?'   asked   Lornine.  "I have ordered a crrriage to hav*  her removed to the hospital." replied  the doctor; "little good coks of harboring people of this kind in one's  home." ���������  Th������re Was something appealing in  the still, white face that mode the  heart nf Ulmont Ulvesford-s wifn  warm unconsciously  roward   IVr.

Behind them slouched Tall Torn wirli  his irifle, and Dolph and Bubo, each with  a huge, old-fashioned horse-pistol swinging from his right hip. Last strode the  schoolmaster. The cabin was loft deserted, the hospitable door held closed by  a deerskin latch caught to a wooden pin  oirtside.  It was a strange humiliation to Jack  thus to be led along the highway, like a  criminal going to -the gallows. Thore  was no power on earth that could have  moved him from Chad's side, other than  the boy's own command, but old Joel  had sworn that 'Ire would keep the dog  tied, and the old.hunter always kept his  word. He" had sworn, too, that Jack  should hove a fair trial. Therefore, the  guns���������and the schoolmaster walked with  liis hands "behind him and his eyes on  tihe ground; he feared trouble.  Half a mile up the riven* and to one  Elide of the rond n space of some thirty  feet square had been eut into a patch of  rhododendron nnd filled with rude benches of slabs, in front of which was n  rough platform on which sat a homo-  made, enne-bottomed chair. Except for  tho opening from the road, the space was  walled with a circle of living green,  through whicli the sun dappled the  benches with quivering disks of yellow  liglrt, nnd high above great poplars nJiJ  oaks arched their mighty heads, lt was  an open-air "meeting-house" where the  circrrit-rider pieirclrcd during hia summer  circuit, and there the trial was to take  place.  Already a crowd was idling, whittling,  gossiping to the road, when the Turner  cavalcade came in sight���������and for ten  miles up and down the river people were  coming in for the trial.  ."Mornin", gentlemen," said old Joel,  gravely.  "Mornin'," answered several, among  whom wns the Squiro, who eyed Joel's  g'un and the guns coming up the road.  "Squirrel hurrtin'?" he asked, and a*,  the old hunter did not answer, he added  sharply:  "Air you afcerd, Joel Turner, thnt you  ain't a-goin' to git justice from me?"  ="I-don't- keer - wilier- il   comes-from.'-*-  sald   Joel,  grimly,  "but  I'm  rr-goin'   to  have  it."  It was plain that Uhe old man not  only wni making no plea for sympathy,  but wan alienating the little he had. and  what he had was very little, for who  but a lover of dogs can give full sympathy to his kind? And then Jack was  believed to bn guilty. It. was curious Lo  boo how each Dillon shrank urieo.n.scioris-  !y as the Turners gathered���������nil but Jerry, one of the giant twins. lie always  stood hid ground, feiuring not muu nor  dog���������nor devil.  Ten minutes Inter the Squiro took his  seat on tho platform, "yhile the .circuit-.  rider squatted down beside 'him. The  crowd, men, women and children, took  tiro rough benches. To one sido sat nnd  stood the" Dillons, old Tad nnd little  Tad, Daws, Xance, and others of the  tribe. Straight irr fTont of the Squire  gathered the Turners about Melissa and  Chad and Juck as n-center���������with Jack  squatted on his haunches foremost of  all���������facing tho Squire with gravo dignity, and looking at none else save, occasionally, tho old hunter or his little  master.  To the right stood the sheriff with his  ride, and on the outnkirts liurrg the  schoolmaster. Quickly the old Squire  chone a jury, giving old Joel the opportunity to object as lie called each man's  name. Old Joel objected lo none, for  every rnim caiied lie knew wns more  frt>rid!y to him Mian to the Dillons, and  old Tad Dillon rni-.'d no word of protc-t.  tor he knew his cn-ve was clem. T'l^n  began the.-trial, and any soul that was  there wonlrl h-'Vi* -iY:ii!.le"-."d eoirhl he  have known how t'ruvt trial iva.i to divide  neighbor ngiiiiist neighbor, and. iri":in  dentil nrrd bloods-ftcd for half a ccalrrry  aftei; the trial itself w.i������ long forgotten.  Tire tir*it. witness, old Tnd���������long, lenn,  stooping, crafty���������had seen the sheep  rushing wildly rip the hillside " 'henf,  enrol, o' dny," he said, and hnd sent Btiv.-a  Kill liim!" And old Tad had rushed indoors for his ritle nnd had taken a shot  nt .Tuck ns lie leaped into the rond nnd  loped for homo. Jrrst then n slern, thick  little  voice rose froitr  behind  Jack:  "Hit wns a Cod's hlcssiu' fer you tlrat  you didn't  hit liinr."  The  Squire ghviud   dowrr at the  boy,  and old Joel snid kindly:  "Hush, Chad."  Old Dillon hnd then gone down to the  Turners, and asked them to kill t.ie dog,  hut old Joel hnd refused.  "W'lrnr wns Whizzcr?" Chnd asked,  slinrnly.  "\ ou can't nxo that question," said  the Squire.   "Hit's cr-or-irrclcvnnt."  Daws cnnio next, When ho reached  tho fence upon tho hillsido ho could see  the sheep lying still on the ground. As  he was climbing over, tho Turner dog  jumped tlie fence and Daws saw blood on  liis muzzle.  "How close was you to 'him?" asked  the Squire.  "'Bout twenty feet," said Daws.  "Humph!" snid old Joel.  "Whnr was Whizzcr?"   Again the old  Squire glared down at Chad.  "Don't you axe that question1 again,  hoy. Didn't I tell you hit wns irrelevant!"  "What's Irrelevant?" the hoy asked  bluntly.  The Squire hesitated. "Why���������why,  hit ain't got notliin' to do witli the  case."  "Hit ain't?" shouted Chnd.  "Joel," said the Squire testily, "of you  don't keep that hoy still, I'll flue him fer  contempt o' court." ,  Joel laughed, hut he put his heavy  hand .on the boy's shoulder. Little Tnd  Dillon and Nance and the Dillon mother  'had all seen Jack running down the  road. Tliere was no doubt but that it  was the Turner dog.. And with this clenr  against poor Jnek, the Dillons rested.  And what else could the Turners' do but  establish Jack's character and put in rr  plea of mercy���������a useless plen, old Joel  knew���������for a first oiTcnce? Jack was tin  best dog old Joel had ever known, nnrl  tho old man.told wonderful tales of the  dog's intelligence and kindness, and how,  one night, Jack"'had guarded n stray  lamb that had broken its leg .intil daybreak, and he 'hnd been led to the dog  nnd the sheep by Jack's birr-king fm  help. The Turner hoys corrlinnrjd (lib  story, though it was received wi-/h *r.  credulity.  How could a dog that would guard nil  3one,  helpless Inmb nil night long lake  the life of another?  ��������� Thore wns no witness that hnd a ugh'  hut kind  words  to  say  of  the  dog.  oi  aught but wonder  that ho should hav  done this thing���������even hack to the catth  dealer who had given lrinr to Chad.'  I'o.  at that time  the denier  said���������so  testified Chad, no objection  being rri-:od  ((  hearsay   evidence���������that  Jnek   wns     the  best dog he  ever knew.    That wns al'  tlio Turners or anybody could Jo or sny.  nnd lho old Squire-wnstihout to turn the  case over to the jury when Chad rose.  "Squire,", he said, and his voice trembled, "Jack's my dog. 1 lived Willi hire  night an' day for 'bout three years, nrv  I- wnnt to axe some questions." ��������� >  He turned to Diiws.  "I want to axe you ef thar was any  blood around that sheep." ->  "Tlrair was n great big pool o' blood,'1  said Daws, indignantly.  Chad looked at the Squire.  "Well, a shecp-killin' dog don't leave  no great big pool o' blood, Squire, will'  the fust one he kills. He sucks it." Sev  eral men nodded their heads.  "Squiro,   tho  fust   time  I   come   ov>-  these mountains, the fust people I see ,  was  these  Dillona���������an'  Whizzer.    Tin  sicked Whizzer on Jnek hyelr, and Jne'  whooped  him.

The hoy  startled  the crowd  nnd  llu  old Squire  himself,  who turned quiekh  to the Dillons.  "Well, whar is Whizzer?"  Nobody answered.  "He ain't been seen, Squire, sence the  everrin' afore tire night o'. the killin'!*'  Chad's statement seemed to be true. No.  a-voico-coritradicted   "An' I want to know if Daws seei'.  signs o' killin' on Jack's head when h.  jumped the fence, why them same sign:,  didn't show wherr he got home."  Poor Ohnd! Here old Tad Dillon  raised his hand.  "Axe the Turners, Squire," he snid  and ns the schoolmaster on the outskirts shrank, ns though ho niennt tc  leave the crowd, the old man's quick cy,.  caught thc movement and he added:  "Axe the school teacher!"  Every eye turned with the Squire's !������������������  tho master, "whose face-: was strangely  serious straightway.  "Did you aee any signs on the dawg  when lie got home?". The gaunt man  hesitated, with one swift glance at the  boy, who almost paled in answer.  "Why," said the schoolmaster, and  again he hesitated, but old Joel, in n  voice that was without hope, encouraged  him:  "Go on!"  "What wus they!"  "Jack had blood on his muzzle, and i}  little strand o' wool behind one ear."  'There was no hope againsti that testimony. Melissa broke away from her  mother and ran out to the road���������weeping. Ohnd dropped with a siob to his  bench and'put his arms 'around the dog;  then he rose irp and walked out of the  opening, while Jack leaped against his  leash to follow. The schoolmaster put  orrt his hand to stop him, but the boy  struck it aside without Igoking up and  went on; he could not sttty to see Jack  condemned. Mc knew what tlie verdict  would be. and ill twenty minutes the  jury gave it, without leaving, their scats."  '���������(brilly!"  The sherilT cinrr> forward. He knew  Jack nrrd Jnek k:ip-.v him and wagged  his rail and whimpered up at him when  he took the leash.  "Well,   by- .   trits   is   a  job  I  don't  like.   nn*.

They were going to kiil Jack whero the  Dillons snid he hnd killed the sheep, and  the boy jumped to hia feet and ran up  tlte hill a little way and disappeared in  tho bushes Hint he might not heiir Jack's,  denth shot, while Melissa sat where she  wns, watching the croud corrre on. Daws  wns rrt tliu foot of the 'hill nnd she saw  ���������him innke a gesture toward hor, and  then the sherilf enure orr with Jack���������over*  the fence, pnst her, the sheriff snyinij  kindly, "Howdy, .Melissa. I slioroly am  sorry to have to kill Jnek," and on to  the dend alrecp, which lay fifty yards beyond. If t'he slici'ill expected Jnek to  drop head and tail and look mean ho wa*  greatly mistaken. Jack neither hung  back nor sniffed at thu carcass. Instead  hc put ono forefoot on it nnd with tho  other bent in the air looked, without  shame, into the sheriffs eyes, as much,  as to say:  "Yes, this Is a wicked and shameful  thing, but what hnvo I got to do with it?  Why arc you bringing ine hero?"  The sheriff came bnck greatly puzzled  and shaking his head.    Passing Melissa  he  stopped   to  let,   the  unhappy  littlo  girl  give Jnek a  last pat,  and  '.t  was  there thai Jack suddenly caught eccnt  of  Chad's  tracks.      With    one  mighty  bound   the  dog  stnntt'hed   tho    rawhide  string from  the  careless sheriiTM  hiind,  and in a moment, with his nose to the  ground, 'was  speeding  up  toward   .llio-.  .Woods.      With  a  startled   yell  and  u  frightful oath, the sheriff threw his iil'.o  'to-his shoulder, hut the little girl sprung  .'up   and   caught   the  barrel   with .both  hands, shaking it fiercely up and down  and hieing  Jack  on  with  shriek   a.'ter..  shriek.   A minute later Jack had disap- *rvt  ���������pearcd in  the bushes, Melissa was run-"  ning like the wind down the hill toward  ���������home, while the whole crowd in the meadow was 'rushing up toward the sheriff,  led by the Dillons, who were yelling nnd  swearing liko madmen.   Above them the  crestfallen sheriff  waited.    Tlie  .Oilluiis  crowded  angrily  about, hiru,  gesticulating and  threatening,   while  he  told  iris  story.  But nothing could he done���������nothing.   They did hot kiiow that Chad wns  up  in   the  woods  or   they  would   havo  gone  in  search  of   him���������knowing   that  when  tliey  fouird  him  they  would  find  Jack���������but to look for Jack now would  be like searching for a ncedlo in a haystack.    There wus nothing to do, then,  but  to   wait  for  Jack   to  come  home,  which   he   would   surely   do   to  get   to  Chad,  and   it  was   while  old  Joel  was  promising that  the dog should  be surrendered  to  the sheriff  thai  little Tad  Dillon gave an excited shriek:  "Look up thar I"  And up tliere al the edge of the wood  wag Chad standing, and nl his feet Jack,  silling on his haunches, with his tonguo  out and looking as though nothing liad  happened or could evor happen to Chad  or to him.  "Come up hyeh," shouted Chad.  "You come down  hyeh," shouted  the  sheriff,  angrily.    So   Chad  came   down,  with Jack trotting after him. -Chad had  cut off the rawhide string, but the sheriff caught Jack by,the nnpe of the neck.  "You won't git away from me ugin, I  reckon."  "Well, I reckon you ain't goin' to  shoot hira," said Chad. "Leggo that  dawg."  "Don't bo a fool, Jim," said old Joel.  "The dawg ain't goin' to leave thc boy."  The sheriff let go.  "Come on up hyeh," said Chad. "I got  ���������oniethin' to show yc."   '.  The boy turned with such ' certainty  .hat without a word Squire, sheriff, Turners, Dillons and spectators followed.  As they approached a deep ravine tho  hoy pointed to lho ground where were  evidences of some fierce struggle���������tho  dirt thrown up, and several small stones  scattered about with faded stains of  blood on them.  "Wait hyelil" said the boy, and he ,  slid down the ravine and appeared again  dragging something after him. 'Tail  Tom ran down to help liim and the two  threw before the astonished orowd tho  body of a black and white dog.  "Now I reckon you know whar Whizzer is," panted Chad vindictively to the  Dillons.  "Well, what of it?" snapped Daws.  "Oh, notliin'," said the boy with fina  snroasiu. "Only Whizzer killed that  sheep and Jack killed Whizzer." From  every Dillon throat came a scornful  grunt.  "Oh, I reckon so," said Chad, easily.  'Look thar!" He lifted thc dead dog's  head and pointed at the strands of  wool between his teeth. He turned it  over, showing the deadly grip on tho  throat and close  to thc jaws, that had  choked ^he life from  Whizzer���������Jack's   own grip."  "Ef you will jus' rickolleet, Jack had'  ���������the same grip the timo afore���������when I  pulled him oft o' Whizzer."  "By  , that's so," said Tall Tom,,  and Dolph and Rube echoed hiin, amid'  a dozen voices, for not only Joel, but  many of his neighbors, knew Jack's  method of fighting, which had made him.  a victor up and down the length of  Kingdom Come. ,  . There was little doubt that the boy:  was right���������that Jack hnd come on Whizzer killing the sheep, and hnd caught him  at the edge of the ravine, where the  two had fought, rolling down and settling the old feud between them in the-,  darkness at the bottom. And up thereon the hillside, the jury that pronounced'  Jack guilty pronounced him innocent,,  and, as the Turners started joyfully  down the hill, the sun that was to have  sunk on Jack stiff in death sank on* Jack  frisking before, them���������home.

The Oiristian is to bc no hermit, no  recluse who draws his heart into his  thcll and goes self-absorbed along the  way of life, thinking only of his own  ���������fTair*. His heart is to bc open to lhe  cries of joy as well as sorrow. He ia  to have a tender heart, easily reached  with thc gladness or thc sorrow of his  neighbor. "Rejoice," says Paul, "witli  them that do rejoice, weep with them  tbat  weep."  The way this command is put robs it  trf all possible selfishness. We are  to rejoice with other people in their  Joy. A great many selfish people envy  thc joy of others and' would ii they  could rob them of it and leave them  bare, carrying all the joy away for  themselves. But the Christian idea is  to rejoice with the one who is glad  and thus reinforce and increase his  gladness. And we all know bow much  there is in that. Every man who has  had a sudden gladness come upon him  has had the desire to tell it to someone else. The joy ot" any great vision,  such as a splendid waterfall or a  glimpse of'a. threat snow mountain or  some scene of wild beauty in the iorest,  is a small thing, if one has. the experience alone, compared to what it is it  you have a congenial soul with which  to share it. Such sharing, instead of  dividing and subtracting from your  own delight,- multiplies it many times.  And the same law holds good in all  other joy. We have a desire to impart it, a desire to talk about it with  others, and we'.'often have the: opportunity of greatly increasing'the joy of  another by listening.'and "putting ourselves into sympathetic touch witli the  ���������gladness which has conic to his soul.  You know some lonely man or woman who has few govs and few friends,  nnd when a letter or some little experience that seems '.trifling, to you wilh  your many friends and your numerous  sources of Happiness comes to that  man or' that women it is a real opportunity given of God to you 'to lisren  with kindling eye nnd appreciative face  ond word while they talk to you of  their joy. Such a privilege to tliem  is a little foretaste of heav n. where  ' all selfishness will be banished and  everyone will,be seeking to give joy  to others.  There is no more regrettable mistake  -for any Christian to make than to permit himself to become so self-absorbed, no matter how great his work'mav  be, that he shall become a kill-joy to  '.������������������weak and ordinary people who look in  Jiim for appreciation in the glad-  ness_ which comes to their fives.. Jesus  Girist was? nc-ier so self-absorbed in  Hii sublime mission for the world's  salvation that He could not enter with  '.sympathetic . heart' aird tender appreciation into the joys as well as thc sorrows of others. He cast no dark shadow at the wedding feast, but added to  its gladness. Surclv wchavc no rigiit  to be above our Lord and hold it lie.  ticath our dignity to bestow our smiles  on the wholesome gladness that has  come to any soul.  But wc mii't not only keep our  hearts tender in appreciation of the  joys of others, but irr ���������svmp-ithctir relation to their .nrrnv.-s ���������,- well.

The loosening of the handles o:  knives is due to the fact that the  knives have becri=tossed into a pan  of hot wa' r, t(���������clhcr with the fork.*,  and spoons, and, in consequence, the  cement has melted away. Knives  when brought from the table, should  tc scraped against thc edge of a plate  to remove as much soil as possible  and the blades should then 1 st in a  jug, not a pan, of hot water, into  which a little bit of soda has been  melted, care being taken that the watci  does not reach the handle, where it  joins the blade.  Thebitian Customs.  Bookish Women.  BookisJmcss is an unreliable test oi  ability. I have known bookish women  who were profuse readers and delighted  in study, but were not of much use  for anything else, and I have known  other women who took books rather  hard, but amply made up for that disability by their closeness of observation and mental energy. As between  persons who read to save themselves  the trouble of thinking, and persons  who observe and think, but find rcael-  ing laborious, the latter are likely to  bc best worth while. But reading, observation and thought ought to work  well together and to make for practical efficiency. A mind that is capable of Greek and analytical geometry  is usually capable also, under proper  training, of omelets, good coffee ant'  household administration.���������E.S.

The process of tearing down, or what  is commonly termed "wearing out"  our land, has been thc work of generations, and the building up must necessarily be the effort of years. On the  ordinary farm, with its five or six  year rotation, each particular tract is  reached and worked oniy six or seven  times in one generation, which should  prompt us to make as much improvement as possible when opportunity offers.  ..-,,���������_    .,,    ^������������������������,i ��������� num.   any    umt:i    .i.niuary   exiier;  rson-ftho   wishes  to   pray   ,,fl       mng.-r-     ���������  criticism  of  ia  ie whe^luturn-H^ swung ,.ij(       Gcnc!.a.    ..,,.(,0l.-e,   and ��������� tircv.

Britain and the Persian Gulf.  The London Dn-ily Chronicle nf Nov. 20  makes the following editorial remnrks In  connection with Lord Cnrzon's tour of inspection In the Persian Gulf :���������"The Interest of Great Brltnln In the matter Is  clear. It Is to prevent tho control of  the gulf by any navnl powor other than  themselves. j.nis policy Is dictated alike  by pnlltlcnl, strategical and commercial  considerations. Tho security of India  would be affected by the establishment  of another power In the gulf: the great  sea route to the enst would be flanked,  n.nd British, and still more, of course,  British-Indian, trade would be put nt a  disadvantage. The Viceroy's tour is In  part Intended ns a practical demonstration ln the general policy declared by  Lord Lnnsdowne In tho House of Lords  Inst Mny. More specifically It may-bo  hoped that Lord Curzon will succeed in  establishing relations which shall be.moro  favorable to British trade than Persian  policy has recntly been."  In Its news columns the same paper, referring in detail to the tour snys :���������Bunder-abbas has long been thought n desirable port by Russia, and the first mention of Russian designs on this port was  promptly followed.by nn attempt on the  part of her ally.

Sheep will cat many plants  that other animals will not touch. It  may not be profitable for some farmers to keep large Hocks of sheep, but  a dozen sheep will cost almost nothing. Tlie same may be said of one  or two pi*-- which give a profit because they consume materials that  would otherwise go to the -manure heap,  but too many sheep or pigs may make  the item of labor too costly to allow  of a profit.  Value of Shredded Fodder.  Ask men who have made a practice  of feeding shredded fodcr why they do  it, and they will tell you thai they feed  it because tlieir cattle, horses and sheep  like it so well and thrive so well upon  it, and because they cannot afford to  let it go to waste and feed hay which  could be sold for two or three times  as much as the prepared fodder costs.  When thc farmer computes the cost  of cutting and shredding his fodder it  looks high, but he must remember that,  although it does cost him' from $2.50'  to $3.50 per ton, it takes the place of  hay which has a market value from two  .to three times that amount. .Men who  have made a practice of feeding shredded fodder state that it costs from $3  to $5 an acre to prepare it, and that  an acre ot average corn will yield from  one and one-half to two and one-half  tons of dry fodder. Tbey > say further  that a ton of fodder lias as much or  perhaps more feed value than a ton of  average hay. Corn used for shredding is bound and -.shocked when the  grains are well dented and glazed  over, but before the stalk" has shown  many signs of ripening.' When thoroughly dry it is run through the busker  and shredded and stowed away in the  maw.���������Iowa Agriculturist.  :..,,?    He Has a Pull.

Many poultry dealers art proud that  their hens produce doublo-yolked eggs,,  and I have known nuin ���������.'(.���������.is cases in  my experience of hens laying eggs  with three yolks. The habit, however,  is one to be discour.ig'jrl in,every possible way, says a writer in London  ,'Farmer and Stockbreeder, for it is  not ah indication of .productiveness,,  but rather of disease. It is caused  either by some sudden disturbance  from the ordinary conditions of life,  as a severe fright, or else it is due to  weakness of the egg organs���������thc natural process of formation not being  gone through properly and regularly.  In almost every case this condition is  brought about by overfeeding���������a too  rapid development of thc yolks causing more than one to leave the ovary  at a time to enter the'oviduct.. A hen  which once gets into this habit will  always be liable to illness, which usually takes the form of loss of power in  the legs, even if an actual rupture does  not occur internally. Such a hen  should therefore bc put at once on  short rations with a view to checking  for'the time being the'development .of  eggs. It is not the ben which lays a  doubl'e-yolked egg occasionally, that is  a profitable hen. Whnt the poultry  farmer shoirlel aim at is a h' Yer general standard in egg production���������a better-average size'and .more .'regular laying. Some heirs only lay once every  two or three clays. These arc thc.."ttn-  profitablcs," and they are ' often the  birds which arc addicted to the "double  yolk" evil.  Great. Demand for Poultry.

In - Germany the attack on. the promiscuous use of the piano and other  noisy musical instruments at all times  and places hns assumed almost the  phaae of a crusade. The latest and  most characteristic discussion of the problem is a determined protest made by  Siegmund Aucrbach, a leading physician  of Frankfort-on-tlie-,\Iain. in the Supplement of the Munich "Allgemeine Zei-  tung," No. 142, tlie oldest and probably  most influential general scientific journal  in the country. The publication of the  protest in this journal is significant, indicating that the learned world of the  Fatherland is taking the matter: seriously. We translate and quote the following:  "The protest nf thinkers against the  piano pest is not new, nor have the pro-  iestants been the meanest among men.  Both Goethe.and-Seliopenhruicr have virtually cursed the evil habit of their  thoughtlesa neighbors that interfered  with their work and comfort, and yet,  comparatively speaking, their sufferings  must have been small compared with  that of most modern men. Still more  recently the litterateur, M. Lessing,  wrote, a aeries of articles in the 'Kord  und Slid,' in which he voiced the protest  of nervous people against this evil. It'  13 w������ll known to what trouble Mrs. Carlyle went to save her husband from  molestation of this kind, and how ISifih"  ard Wagner bought peace at a higt  price from the distorting street rabble in  .Florence, The question itself has a history which prominent men have helped  ���������to: make. ���������  "The question has both a medical and  a legal sido.

Mr. Sibbald has icturned from the  south where he has been for the past  two weeks in connection with rninihg  interests. Among other places Jlr.  Sibbald visited the great hydraulic  plant at Grant's Pass. Ore., wheie  they have a working claim of over  .1500 acres. He also was in Nevada  City but the majority of the mines  there were >hrrt down owing to lhe  difficulty in disposing of the large I  amount of refu*c sluiced outs Mi:  Sibbald finds few new ideas in ihe  placer "mining system in the south  which are not in operation here. Of  com-se. as he says, in every workable  mining property dilferent circumstances call for different method.*, in working and while one system i.s all right  for one claim it might lie entir^ly  rrnsatisfactory in another.
