THE PYTHIANS  EASTER BALL  il  Was Largely Patronised and  Proved an Immense Success  ���������Good music, a good floor,  and well arranged Programme  That Gold Range Lodge, No. 26,  Knights of Pythias, are among the  peers of entertainers was always an  acknowledged, fact in Revelstoke, yet  the patrons of the local Knights' Easter ball were more than surprised and  delighted at the perfect arrangements  which had been made for their comfort and pleasure on Monday evening  last. The committee of management,  consisting of Bros. T. J. "Wadman, E.  Paget, F. B. Lewis, R. Gordon and G.  H. Brock, are certainly deserving of  the best thanks of their brethren for  so ably maintaining the reputation of  Gold Range Lodge on this occasion.  Everything that could possibly add to  the success of this long looked for event  had been carefully attended to.  The Opera House was artistically  draped with bunting in the prevailing  colours of the Order���������red, blue and  yellow. The addition of an arc light  iu the centre of the hall added greatly  to the brilliance of the ball room.  While the cosy corners, thoughtfully  arranged by the committee for the  comfort of the dancers were, judging  from appearances^ much appreciated.  Two of the principal factors in the  success of a ball���������good music and n  good floor���������\verev in this case all that  could be desited, and when it is known  that the former was supplied by the  Revelstoke orchestra, viz., Messrs:  Cormack, Doyle, Bray, Taylor and  Humphreys, and that they were up  to tbeir usual standard, 11b more need  be said.  The reception committee, consisting  of. Mrs. H. A. -Brown, -MrsrHB.- Van  Home, and Bros. H. A.Brown, Dr.  Cross, B. Van Home, B. A. Lawson  and R. Gordon, were untiring in their  efforts to 'see that one and all had a  good time and were well supplied with  partners for the different dunces.  Some eighty couples were in attendance and the bull opened shortly after  nine   o'clock   with, the Grand March  and   Lancers, after which   followed a  varied   programme   of  waltzes,  two-  steps,  jerseys,  minuets,  schottisches.  etc., each mimbsi* seemingly superior  to its predecessor as the dancers became enlivoned by the gay music, the  bright surroundings and the geniality  and sociability which abounded on all  sides.    At midnight an  adjournment  was made for supper, which was served  upstairs.   Here again the general committee   showed   good   generalship   in  leaving this, not the* least important,  share of the evening's entertainment  entirely in the hands of the ladies, the  committee in charge being Mesdames  S.  McDonald,  Bturidge, Bennett and  F. B. Lewis.     As was noticeable in all  other details in  connection  with the  hall nothing was lacking which   could  add in any way to those present "thor-  j^ighly__������ijo>Jjig__thj?jirselves.     An  abundant supply of dainties had been  provided, and ample opportunity was  given  the dancers   to refresh, themselves.    Durfng the interval a number  of acceptable extras  were played by  Miss Bliss, Roy Smythe and H. Watt.  Floor Manager Gordon  then called  "The 'Lancers"   which   signalised the  opening of the second part of the programme.     From then on dancing was  cmtinued with unabated* vigor tintil  '{���������30 on   Tuesday, morning,  when all  dispersed to thoir various homes well  pleased with  tho splendid time which  they had had.     Thu event will linger  long in the memory of those who participated therein  as one of the most  successful in tbe history of Revelstoke.  From a financial standpoint also the  ball   was   a  success and a handsome  sum realized which will be devoted to  the institution of a lodge of Rathbone  Sisters as soon as  arrangements can  be   completed.     To   judge  from  the  energetic   way   in    which   the" lady  fl*ief|ds rjf the Knights assisted at .the  ball on Mondiiy night, the new lodge  will   be  composed   of  a bevy of   fair  hustlers capable of rendering valuable  iv.d to the local Pythians in the com-  nendable   work   in   which  thoy  are  its   success   is   already  No Sign of War Fleets.  On board the steamer Haimun, oif  Port Arthur, April 0.���������(By De Forrest  wireless telegraph to Wei-Hai-Wei;  April 0.)���������"I have been cruising in the  immediate vicinity of Port Arthur for  fifty hours. The situation here is a  most remarkable one and but for the  searchlights on Golden Hill, which'  illuminate the waters brightly, it  might be thought that all the world  was at.peace. There is absolutely no  evidence of hostilities and we have not  seen a single craft of any description  belonging to' either belligerent. Although we have been at sea ever since  Saturday, we have failed to locate even  a scont ship, which is very unusual, as  heretofore when the fleets were notto  be seen, the scouting boats were always  cruising off the coast.  . "Another singular feature is the absence of tho large flotilla of Chinese  junks, which, on all previous visits to  these waters we have seen steering  northwest and which were usually laden with provisions for Port Arthur.  None of these have been seen for two  clays."  Brussels, April C���������The following  despatch has been received from a Berlin correspondent, and while it is not  generally credited, is worthy of reproduction merely as indicating that there  is still a belief that intervention will  yet end the war:  "KingEdward-has taken precautionary steps to ascertain in Russia would  be disposed to accept an offer of mediation. The Czar' is declared'to have  assured the King that if such an offer  were properly made, it would readily  be accepted by Russia. With Russian  acquiescence thus secured, it is difficult  to see how Japan can decline tlie proposal when it emanates from her powerful ally. Optimists here believe that  the slow march of events in the Far  East is due to the fact that these notifications, have actually begun." ,  THF GRAND  TRUNK PACIFIC  .

Whyte  Says the Alleged Combine is  Broken and That Satisfactory  Agreement Reached.  Winnipeg, April 4.���������Mr. William  Whyte, second vice-president of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, made a  statement to the press to-day that the  lumber combine which has existed in  Manitoba and the Territories tor some  timef aiid which has caused such unfavorable comment, both on the part  of the public and the company, is now  a thing of the past, and in future  lumber will be sold in an open market  the same as any other commodity in  connection with the development of  the West.  This open market is the direct result  of the announcement which he made a  short time ago, that if it were necessary to do so, the ,C. P. R. Company  would instal its own mills on its timber  areas In Britfsh Columbia, and sell lum-  liel^tli'rougliits agentsrTlie~"iimTounce~  ment was followed by meetings with  the Coast and mountain mill-owners,  and agreements wore entered into with  them which enable him to make this  announcement.  In consideration of the lower freight  rates granted by the Company from  British Columbia, the manufacturers  will lower their-prices on all common  grades $1 per thousand to all points iu  Manitoba and the Territories, in  addition to which they will join the  Railway in publication of price list,  showing the prices of all kinds of lumber delivered at each point of the Iine>  such price-list to bo posted up in all its  stations for the information of the  public; There is also an understanding with the manufacturers which will  insure absolutely an adequate' supply  of lumber being carried at all points.  Sir Wilfrid, Explains Reasons  for Modification.���������Hon. Borden Recommenes a Thorough  Revision of Policy  Ottawa, April 5.���������-In the House of  Commons today Sir Wilfrid Laurier  moved the.adoption of certain 'modification!*'of the contract entered into  last session with the Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway Company for the  construction of a transcontinental  railway. The Premier, in doing so,  referred to the transportation question  as being the most important before  Parliament and the country. There  was also the development of waterways and the connection of the Yukon  with centres of population in the West  to be considered. The changes in the  contract, he said, were for the purpose  of permitting the Company to sell its  bonds on account of the change in the  money market. ,  Mr. Borden, leader of the Opposition  moved an amendment. He suggested  that, in order to determine the transportation question, tho government  should have kept in mind the extension of the Government railway  system, and the freeing of 'it from  political control; a control of rates, in  return for reasonable aid; extension of  the canal system, and a thorough  equipment of Canada's national ports  in inland waters and on the seaboard;  a system of elevator warehouses and  terminal facilities, under Government  control or government ownership,  where expedient; more economical  carriage and more eiilcient service,  and, as these features were not provided for, he moved an amendment  that, instead of ratifying tho proposed  contract, it would be more in public  interest to-develop -the- system-��������� of  national transportation, which should  include *the immediate construction  and control by the Dominion of such  lines of' railways in the West  as. the" enormous importance and  increasing development of the  great Western country ' required the  extension of the Intercolonial Railway  to Georgian Buy, thence to Winnipeg,  and the extension and improvement of  the government system in the Province of Quebec and the Maritime Provinces; the development and improvement pf canals and inland water-ways  and the effectual equipment of Canada's national ports and terminals on  the Atlantic and Pacific, as well as on  the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes and  a thorough examination and survey of  the country between Quebec and Winnipeg, with a view to the future construction of such lines of railway as  might be found necessary in tho public  interest and to accomplish these results the governmentshouldgebexpert  advice and assistance.

The Provincial Teachers' Institute,  now holding their annual convention  in Vancouver, have chosen Revelstoke  as their meeting place next yeai\ Revelstoke has been well.nained "A City  of Conventions," from the fact that so  many provincial conventions have been  held here in the past two or three  years.

On Thursday,evening last the employees of thc C. P. R. shops tendered  a farewell smoker to their foreman,  Mr. John Scott, who has been transferred to Kamloops. Over one hundred were present and Jlr. Kd. Trimble  occupied the chair. An enjoyable  evening was spent, consisting ol" songs,  speeches, etc. During the evening the  guest was presented .with a handsome  meerschaum pipe, and the following  address was read by Theo Wadman,  to'which Mr. Scott suitably replied:  Mr, John Scott,  Revelstoke, B. C. .-���������   ���������  Dear Sir,���������-I feel myself honored indeed iu being delegated to voice the  MiMitiments of those who have, for thc  past few months been your co-workers  in the C. P.

However indadequately I may accomplish this pleasing task rest assured it  is simply because Ihavenot graduated  in this capacity 011 many similar occasions and am no High Priest in the  art of making speeches or presenting  addresses. Sir, your comrades have  felt that they could not permit you,  their foreman, to depart from the  classic shades of Revelstoke without  assuring you of the; high place you  hold in their esteem and affection.  That sentiment is not shared alone by  those who ranked close to you in the  shops but also by the novices who did  apprentice work in that great school  of industry and by whom you will he  long held in pleasant recollection for  the patience you displayed in teaching  them the craft, and the kindly encouraging words and advice you gave them  as.they toiled under yoi'ir supervision.  Accept therefore their grateful thanks*  When you have gone to your new  field of labor (where we guarantee you  in  advance  new  laurels,   but   none  Presentation to Mr. Scott.  On Saturday evening last the home  of Mr. Peter Hooley, McKenzie ave.,  was thc scene of a very pleasant gathering, when ��������� the boiler makers of the  C. P. R. shops gave a concert in honor  of Mr. John Scott, locomotive foreman,  who is leaving Revelstoke to take  charge of the shops at Kamloops. Mr.  Hooley ably filled the position of  chairman, and the manner in which  followed songs, readings and recitations,- sho wed-that-the-ri vet-drivers  were out for a good time.  About 10:110 a change took place in  the programme when Mr. Robert D������w  on behalf of thu Innler-makers. presented Jlr. Scott with a handsome  gold watch chain, to which was attached a charm bearing the emblems  of the Masonic Older and the inscription "To Mr. John Scott from the  boiler-makers of Revelstoke.*' Mr.  Scott replied in a very feeling manner,  showing how highly he appreciated  their kindness. The. company were  then invited to the dining room where  supper was served. Then followed  toasts and speeches until the clock  warned them it was time to separate  ere they encroached upon the Sabbath  and after singing, "God be with you  till we meet again," the company  dispersed.

McLennan of Revelstoke, champion amateur -.wrestler of British Columbia and holder of the Maxwell gold  medal, returned on Friday last from a  visit to his home in the east.' During  his sojourn in Eastern Canada "Jack*'  has won fresh laurels as a wrestler,  having met and defeated D. R. Reid,  of Sydney, Nova Scotia, who until  their held the championship of the  maritime provinces. Reid, who stands  0 feet 4J inches, had much the advantage in height and reach over McLennan, who stands 5 feet 11 inches.  There was only two pounds difference  in their weight however, Reid weighing 197 lbs., while McLennan weighed  105 lbs. The following extracts from  the Sydney pi-ess give a brief account  of the match:  " Reid was the aggressor and secured ,  a half hold forcing McLennan to the ���������  mat on his knees. It looked as if little '  remained for Reid save turn his oppon- '  ent over. Here McLennan displayed '  his excellent knowledge of the game '  as just at the time Reid intended to do *;  the trick, havingsecureda half Nelson, '  McLennan by- an excellent feat in"  which, much strength' and splendid''  skill was a feature, pinued'the champion to the mat and obtained tlie first  fall.   Time 15 minutes.*'  "Five minutes later the men again  faced each other. McLennan was decidedly on the defensive while Reid  was very aggressive. The latter finally  secured a hold and forced his opponent  to his knees. Reid this time was taking no chances and finally secured a  half Xelson and log hold and pinned  McLemian's shoulders to the mat.  Time 20 minutes."  "The greatest interest centered in*  the next bout. For the first time McLennan assumed the aggressive and in  short oilier secured a lock which by  clever manoeuvering gave him a full  Xelson and with much force from it  standing position he hurled Reid to*  the mat and in a manner that did not  admit of the slightest doubt won the  third fall. This was the last fall and  when they again faced each other  McLennan was taking no chances.  Reid. as the hour advanced, became  more aggressive and desperately attempted to secure a hold. McLennan,  however, was content, by clever dodging to await the expiration of the  time of one hour and succeeded."  "A feature of the match was the  "clever_breaking'_nnd"dodging_of���������Mc;���������  Lennan. On different occasions when  it seemed Reid was bound to fecore  McLennan would break clear. His  work in this particular was extraordinary, and while Reid may have an  advantage in length, reach and possibly strength, he was simply out-classed  in lhe more scientific knowledge of  wrestling by McLennan."  "Jack's" many friends in Revelstoke  are glad to welcome him back, and  congratulate him on his new triumphs.  He befirs his honors modestly and was  none the worse of his encounter witU  the "big man" of the cast. He will in  the meantime resume his former occupation as brakesman with the C. P. IU  but should he see fit to follow up tha  grand old ail of wrestling, we predict  him a coming champion of larger fields  than either  provinces.  the  Maritime  or   Pacific  A football^meeting will be held on  Wedna. day, April 13, at 8.p.m., at Ij.

ind his action, which of couise we all
hriil to ngiee was perfectly fair and jnst,
nn-. the first blow to thc general felicity.
After mastering all the facts of the caso,
he showed us that it was incompatible j
with his duty to his dead friend t���.�� allow
nny acknowledged engagement between
the young couple until Phil had mentis
lufSeient to support a wife, until he had
at least the same amount of capital to
Itart with as tho girl herself had���ffoio

Five to seven   thousand   pound?!    Tlio

about those diamonds.    Once  again, ^n

tvith as little success as on the first occasion.    Ko   power   on   earth,    it   would

those tantalizing gems.
Colonel Maitland, whom   we  all   Iilced
��� greatly, remained a week  with  us. during which time he and   Phil   had   many
long consultations as   to? the   quickest
ways and means of increasing his modest
legacy to the stipulated amount of capital, for  to  these young  lovers, who sis
weeks before had not nn ideaof spending
their lives together, the idea of  waiting
until Trot v.ts of age to marry whom sho
liked���the idea of  waiting four never-
ending years���appeared a probability or
Contingency too painful and absurd to ha
entertained seriously for a moment.   Tho
result of these consultations  we  learned
to our general dismay the day before our
guest took his departure.    P'n'l Irad marls
up his mind to  Rive   up  the  University

Then the terrible bitch came. In a
short letter tn me, enclosingeeven sheets
to his sweetheart, Philip informed 113
that he was starling tha next day up-
country to view some property that was
for sale, and 011 v. Inch a scientific friend
liad reported the strong probability of
the existence of copper. If he had sufficient grounds7 for believing this report,
lie would require us to realize his second

send out the iaouey to hiin without delay, as even a modest find of coppei
would run him up to the top of the tree

angrily. "I will not listen to another

my dear; I've kept a cup of tea hot for

Trot   followed   me   out, but   instinctively   Btopped   at the turn that led to
her  room.    I. glanced   hurriedly  away
from  tiro  pale piteous   face, ^then   rui-1
swered the unspoken appeal.
" .���/ell, j'os, you are right; it is too late
for tea. Trot. Quarter prist six ? I bad

She took a few steps upward, then
turned, layiug her band upon my shoulder.
"Netty, love," sire whispered, "dof't

bave been happy, you know, and that
would have been worse for you all. Tell

Oh, but I knew better���I knew better,

A week went by.    '.t'he disenchanting

circle of friends, and Trot   had had   tho

, "Well, if we don't* Trot?"
'��� "If yon don't, I'll leave tho bouse ray-
lelf to night, go straight to my guardian
who will be only too delighted to linva
me, and never, never couie back until
you give in. I will, an sure as I'm standing before you!"
The end of it wns we had to give in,
tbe four of us, for we saw thnt Trot was
determined to carry outlier threat. Tho
blue room was placed at Janet's disposal,
and she and Trot sp-nt. the rest or tho
afternoon (herein, dii-l:iig. settling, superintending the housemaid's iiiTiiiigu-
merits, wliile we sat in ihe drawing-
room, our hands crossed irr orrr laps,
Swelling with indignation.
At about six o'clock, a few minutes
before the arrival of lhe mail (rain,
Janet, in her best black Mlk, her thin
hair ornamented wilh a bunch of HCirlet
feathers, looking very Hnnteied arrd ill rrt
ease, joined our circle, and then Trot
slipped in too. She took her usual place
on lhe footstool between l-'cggy ami me,
laid her dark bead against iny knee, **. 1
whispered wariiingly���
"Be good���bo good, all of you. C*^
member my threat. At the Jiist sirji' ol
outbreak I'm off to the Colonel's!"
There wuo a sound of carriage wheels
coming up tho avenue, then Janet, hei
heavily-ringed lingers working nervously
turned wistfully to us.
"Sisters, dou't he hard upon her; it. is
not her fault���she knows nothing aboiu
it. And she is a stranger, coming alono
among us in the most, trying position a
���a woman could he placed in, claiming
our pity, our protection and love. Help
me to make her feel at hrmie, please���
The door opened and wesaw her standing on the threshold, a tall, very fair
young woman, with bright blue eyes,
rather sharp but very pretty features,
and a mass of golden hair tumbling about
lier shoulders. For a moment she stood
thus confronting us, her arms slightly
outstretclied, ber lips parted, until Janet
made a few unsteady steps forward, and
then sbe moved swiftly towards her and
fell lightly and gracefully into her arms.
"You are his mother!" she cried. "Oh,
I knew it���I felt it the moment 1 saw
you! Mother, you will try to like rue,
for bis���for Philip's sake ? You will pity
tue, for I am nearly broken-hearted ?"
Janet responded effusively; then, after
much kissing, crying, and hurried exchange of information, with tlie tears
Etill in her bright eyes, the girl turned
very prettily to us.
"And you are bis aunts about whom
I've heard so much ? Oh, I love you already for your goodness to him! I think
I know you too!"���this to Trot, who had
advanced shyly to greet her. for we all
stood in the background like a row of
mutes, not knowing whnt'to say or do.
"He has your photograph all over the
room���only you rare prettier than your
photograph; You are Trot,' ai*en't you ?
Yes, I thought so. Well, Phil gave ine
a sweet little parrot for yon; but it died
when we were in the UXy of Bisc.13*, and
I cried a whole day- over it Won't you
kiss me, Trot, aud tell me you are glad
to see me?"
Whereupon Trot raised her lips, winds,
a neat little speech of welcome, and then
drew back to make way for ua,-r 1 rd-
vanced, my hand extended.
"Iain very glad indeed to   make yout
acquaintance,"   I  said   with    pompons
stiffness.    "I hope yorr will   find   tire climate of the country.agrees; with yorr. "
Ignoring my hand, she slipped, her. arm

to put his hands into Ids father-in-law'.,
pocket before be hriil beeu married a
moulh, and that besides he had set his
heart on working this business ivitb his

with his own money. I was so angry,

me a bit. AVe had ipi'ie a scene���our

a. g^od little girl to let him go, wasn't
I now? I wonder if yoir would havo
been as self-denying if you had beeu Lu

There was a horrible minute's silence;
then Peggy broke ir with a rather treacherous tremor in iier voice.
"Bull���i'Niii'pose your sacrifice will
be amply recompensed, if Piiil finds ojp-

"Oh, then he and I can start a uinnsio'i

tnin, I watched unnoticed tlie meaning
glances our visitors interchanged, heard
a few of the whispers that I knew wero
circulating all through the room.
"How well she takes it, to be sure!
Do you really think the unconcern is all
put 011?"
"It ia bard to know. Some people say
tho poor girl is nearly brokeii-hearted���

since the news was told her; o'hers again

"What do you think of ths bride?
Hasn't she a charming face?"
"Oh, charming���just like an angel's;
and her manners are so graceful and sympathetic."
"Her figure���ha, ha!���rumor says, in

J '      "You   have eye3 311st like Phil's!"���!
have  not; Phil's are  brown,   mine  are
two years before.    Then, on  the  Fri ay ]
following, the Australian mail brought a !
second letter that almost threw   us   into
the same state of agitation and rebellion I
as  the   first.    It  was  a   hurried  scran I i
again from Phi! informing us that he had i
not waited for the answer to his appeal,.]
that  he  and   his   brr.ler had intended to j
take us by storm that very   week, arriv- j
Ing by the marl that brought  the letter.
They bad  started, it seemed,   for   .Mel- j
bourne, taken their  cabins, and,   at  tho ]
last moment, just two  hours before   tire
vessel was to sail, Phil  received  a  tele
gram from hi3 partner summoning him
at once up country on business and   urging bim to wire to Europe for the remittance of his second   thousand.    After a
half-distracted consultation between husband  and   wife,   the   former decided on
Beniirug his poor Enriiieline home by   the
green, with a soapcoii of a cast in tiro
left "I mean the expression. Which
are you���Netty, Hetty ?"
"Netty," I answered, rnolified in spite
of myself; and then the others .followed
6uit, the stiffness and soreness disappeared, and we found somehow* that we
could not-snub Phil's-wife' as we felt sha
ought to'be snubbed.."
"Oh, this is so different from what I
expected!" the pretty young creature
cried, sinking unon her knees beside
Janet's chair, "You can't think bow I
dreaded this meeting! I thought you
would be cold, stiff nnd critical���that it
���wonld be weeks before we could know

But I was ri :br after all,   fnr,   half rn

couched   in     tho    following    pn.Lh.iiic ;

excitement. "The h!ne room has rather!

"Tho woiiia.il will oooupy no room in a

I nnswered determinedly.
The threo others continnn I my deolnr-
Ation nnd looked so i.,llexihle thnt.,hi ���(,
without an attempt nt expostulation,
went off in a flood of tears.
Then Trot, who had been a silent ivit-

When I drew up my blind the next
morning, the first, ohjeois that, mel. my

round the garden ariii-iii-arin^ making a
very pretty picture in their light colt 111
dresses among the blooming Uowrcs.
And, when they cumu in to breakfast,
tlrey appeared to be already on terms of
easy girlish intimacy and to have exchanged many confidences.
Emmeliiie's greeting of us was again a
mixture of timidity and effusiveness that
we found very disarming, aud we wero
not inclined in tbe least lo complain of
her "gush" when she praised the old
place we all loved so well���when sbe declared that it was her ideal, tree for tree,
flower for flower, of an English homestead, and that the freshness of our

������ That afternoon chanced to be our
weekly afternoon at home; and, as tiro
news of Emmeliiie's arrival had,already
spread in the neighborhood, there was
quite a large gathering in the drawing-
room, when, at about four o'clock, Janet,
who had gone out aft !r lunch lo see to
the transfer of Phil's properly, entered,
in a condition of coiiiplacnt .exhaustion,
leaning on the rtrni of her blushing young
A faint murmur of approbation went
round, aral the girl mdinowluiiged il by u
deeper blush and 11 swift drooping of her
eyes; bul, after 11 few minutes, sho
seemed, without the slightest apparent
effort, to shake oil the biirthon of hei'
pretty consciousness and to become her
own chatty impulsive self again, moving
from group lo group with smiling easo
nrrd well-bred self-poitsession. And,
when Trot, nfter ;i hot game ut tennis,
reentered lo preside as usual nt the lea-
table., she found the place already most
(flicicntly filled,'Kninieline having been
established in it bv Juliet's cruel taclless-

Kitirueliiic, seeing, 1 suppose, the surprise oil the other girl's face, jumped up

"Oh, Trot, I���I hnve taken your pine?,
dear; but I'm bo glad yorr have como,
for I'm making such a muddlo of everything���such 11 muddle!"
Trot, dropping into an armchair near

" 'Ail's well that ends well.' How
radiant the mother looks! She really
ought to have ber precious diamonds out
to celebrate the occasion."
Janet's affection and appreciation of
her daughter-in-law increased daily.
They wero inseparable, for Janet, suddenly laying nsido all her invalid fnds
and habits, ordered lliree or four rather
juvenile costumes and went about to
floner shows, cricket matches, tenuis
parties iu indefatigable chrrperonage of
her new daughter. Poor Emmeline,
however, did not much appreciate this
devoted attendance, for Janet, with her

the girl five minutes from her side, and

The young wife spent the rest of tho

the murmured ; and then an uncomfortable silence followed, broken only by Janet's tearless sobbing.

For the rest of the afternoon we saw
no more of Emmeline, as she'remained
locked up in her room, poring over hor
letter nnd adding countless postscripts to
the one she was going to send out the
next morning.
However, the vague gloom of the day
was somewhat dispelled at late post hour
by an invitation for Janet and her
daughter-in-law to a big dinner-party at
Lord Somertown's that day. week, for
which Jaue.t announced her intention of
ordering the next morning at Madame

fact through the evening papers, slie
was at the gate to meet the postman,
who brought her another voluminous

her dear daughter's supervision, promised
to he a tremendous success.

Ulmont was frightened at the terrible calmness of her voice.  "What do they wish? answer mc,"  she commanded.  Slowly the officer stepped forward.  '"lie is wanted in Switzerland, madam; wq aro come to escort him thither." i  'i'hey all read the terrible question  in hor eyes, and they pitied the  proud, white-haired iady before them,  as  they continued in a   low  voice:  "For the murder o������ Heath Hampton in a  duel."

I'hey heard a glad cry: "Ulmont, my  darling," and two white arms were  flung around  Ulmont's nock.  "What have I dono that has displeased you, dear's"' whispered Loraine; "you could not have stayed  away from me so cruelly if it were  nol so. Why did you not come hours  ago, love?" ,  Ulmont's (heart was full; he only  shook his head, clasping the lovely  form he was so soon to leave madly to  his wildly beatiing heart; in that (moment he quite forgot she was not his  .wife.  "1 have had such horrid dreams,  love," she sighed, "but'they are ali  gone' now that I have you with me  again."  "You .would not like to lose me,  -Loraine?" he asked, in a voico terribly calm.  The clasp of the white arms tightened about his neck. "  "Do not say such frightful words,  Ulmont. I cannot bear such thoughts,  dear; you must not try my heart so  cruelly."  Ulmont could scarcely impress a  groan that rose to his lips.  "I want you to clasp your arms  010601; about me, Ulmont," she said,  with a smile on hor innooeut face,  "and tell me how truly you love me.

He knelt at tho couch of Lorainfe,  his head upon her mother's shoulder  refusing  to ba  comforted.  That was a funeral never to be forgotten. It was a pitiful sight to sea  the same group of sorrowful maidens thnt had held whita roses at her  wedding, place snowy flowers on her  tomb.  She was so beau'tiful even in death,  so fair, so young to die.  Young girls looked upon her smiling, marble face, with tear- stained  eyes, while mothers, with a shudder,  clasped their own darlings oloser to  their breasts.  For many a long year after tihey  told df tire beautiful, goldon- haired  young wife, who waa sc* young and  fair to dio.

Kven strangers cried:  "God bless hor for  the comfort she  has brought tbis grief- stricken mother."  It was all over.  "Izetta," Ulmont said, sadly, "I am  going away ���������going abroad for the  present. Ulvesford Mansion haunts  me.

THE TRAIL OF THE  LIBERAL SERPENT,  It must be very   edifying to those  Conservatives  who ri-iiiemlicr Liberal  professions  to  iind  how  readily tliey  strangle their offspring whenever partisan  interests so ilciiiuiid.    I'Vw will  forget  the   holy   horror expressed by  Sir Wilfrid Laurier. lion. AV. Mulock,  et al,  at the mere idea of ;i government daring to outrage public life by  votes and subsidies in favor nf various  local projects.     To-tiny Liberal orgafrs  are urging the electors of Kootenay to  support the   Laurier  administration,  because grants had  been   made in curtain   districts.'    We ask, who contributes this money ?    Does it come out  of the pockets of well paid ministers of  the   Crown ?     These   latter nob only  increased their annual  indemnity, but  saw to it that the Premier's salary was  increased.     Surely the people  of the  Kootenay country, and this applies as  veil to those throughout British Columbia, paying as they nearly do three  tiuies the per capita tax paid by eastern "nabobs" and artisans, are entitled  to some consideration, unless the Liberals are willing to permit our western  Mien  to remain  hewers  of wood and  drawers of water   for the edification  of   all   and   sundry   who   prefer   tlie  breezes of the Atlantic and the waters  of the St.  Lawrence, to the shores of  the   Pacific.     More   than this, it was  announced   that   a    general   election  ���������would   take   place   in     February   or  Jlarch.   Presto!  after candidates had  been nominated, the  wheels wore reversed -and another session  called to  patch   op   the   Grand   Trunk Pacific  blunder.    The country not only-pays  an immense sum for legislative work,  but each member receives .$1,500 for  attending the session.     More sessions  still,   another -opportunity is'.vouchsafed both political and private "grafting."   "Wherever a weak spot is found  there the wirepuller gets in his deadly  work, nothing is   done because of a  right possessed  by electors.   For instance   take the  case of the  town of  Beaton,   in   the Upper  Lardeau.    At  the last general   election   the Liberal  candidate recei ved almost a unanimous  vote, on   the   strength, it   is   said   of  promises made by his supporters that  a high water channel would be dredged  irom the present deep water channel  to Beaton, a distance of about three-  quarters of  a mile, thus facilitating  loading and unloading within the village   precincts.     Then   delay, on the  plea that the   "government   dredge*'  ���������was   not   yet  constituted.     Now the  subject looms up again and one of the  Liberal managers signs a petition and  returns it with the remarks:  " I saw Mr. Galliher regarding this  =ildi^gingi^nd^ji'^iEVEijF^iiEi^i&  "AGAIN RETURNED BV THIS RIDING  "'THERE WILL DE NO TltOflSLE I.V  " HAVING THIS WORK DONE.*'  A   more   brazen   attempt   to coerce  electors' never was made in the Kootenay country, and whether the government or   its   agents at Arrowhead or  Camborne or any other point, finally  bave   the   dredging   done, we  do not  believe the  insult will be forgotten or  forgiven.    The work is either required  or not required:  we   believe   it to be  . necessary: but the   shameless   threats  as to voting properly is unworthy of n  free people.    "If Mr. Galliher i.s again  returned."     Are    the     Liberal   wire*  ��������� pullers so sure that the Laurier government   will   be    sustained   by   the  country?    Now  if the dredge (whicli  appears  to  be a  sort of   addition to  some of the Arrowhead works) cannot  b<5 utilized for the purpose of deepening the channel  approaches to Beaton  ���������why   not  say   so   at   once   and be  honest with the people?   The Government dredge is marvellously adapted  for undermining piles and destroying  docks, and certainly  if it i.s let louse  upon Beaton there will  be no Beaton  left, unless greater caution is observed  bt those who during the season are  piid for manipulating it.

He.  submitted Iliat one born and bred in  the province of British Oolunibiashoiild  bc in a good position to talk intelligently upon the Chinese (question,  particularly as it affected white labor.  "I certainly think," said the Premierl'  ������������������that the British Government is committing a very serious error in throwing open the Transvaal to Chinese labor. "Presuming that the reports which [-growing, sugar cane growing and   the  making   nf   sugar,    cotton     growing  into the Transvaal can never serve any  useful purpose, and will only add anothei* complication to a situation  which I understand is sullicieiitly  complicated now to pir/zle the best  brains in the colony. I certainly view  with the utmost misgiving this step of  the British government, and cannot;  believe tliat they have been well-advised in the matter. Had the. advice  of lhe British Columbia, government  or of British Columbia public men  been sought in this mutter, as it well  iiii^lit, owing to tlieir wide experience,  there is litlle doubt that the British  government would liave been strongly  advised to discountenance the pr.i-  posal fo allow Chinese labor into the  Transvaal."'���������Victoria Colonist.

Il  was to this province and its long and  varied experience of the Chinese that  the'British Government should have  looked for an example of the sort of  thing which it is pioposed to introduce  into the Transvaal. That government  would then have learned that British  Columbia, afterexhaustive trials, is not  favorably impressed with Chinese labor  and is strongly desirous of stopping the  further inilux of those people. Eastern  public men who oppose, the imposition  of a prohibitive head tax. as the $500  head tax at present in force practically  is, clearly do not understand the question.

The horizontal bar in an attic ls an  t indoor limb of a tree. Expert, boy tree  ' climbers will be expert horizontal bar  gymnasts; yet the clumsiest tree  climber can learn to worlc on the bar.  AU he needs is courage���������plenty of it.  The bar should be of hickory or ash,  two Inches in diameter and five or si"  feet Ions. One end of the bar may ba  fastened in a wooden (socket screwed to  the wall, the other being laid in a hole  cut-in tho top of a stent pole, which is  strengthened by ropes or wires attached to rings in the floor.  Better to rig your bur too liii;h than  too low, for your tall friends cannot  work on a low bar, while your littlo  chums can manage fairly well on a  iiich ono. You should bc able to touch  with the flnsi-r tips of both liands the  lower side of the ideal bar.  Your indoor tree Is planted, and you  fiave taken off most of your clothes,  opened wide tho windows, placed an  old nmttretra beneath the bar. and arc  quite ready to "climb.*' Walking with  the liands is n i;ornl movement for the  beginner. Seize the bar, placed at tho  proper height, with both hands, finger*:  and thumbs, not the backs of your  liands. beinp: opposite ypur eyes. Walk  sideways with your hands, keeping  your feet together, and trying not to  sway. A well set up man does not  bway when he walks; nor (should you,  even though you are walking on your  hands. *  In breasting the bar, hang in the  first position and slowly draw yourself  up to your chest, ionising a moment before dropping gradually. Chinning is  , a simpler form of the same movement,  the idea being to raise one's chin to the  level of thc bar. When you can chin  yourself with one hand you have become a very strong boy or girl. Hanging by the knees mpst people do not  find it difficult to perform. ��������� Dropping  to the feet from that position is not so,  easy. Ask Fred to hold you. On making your first trial sway like a pendulum, and when you are at the top of  the swing, drop���������and you will be surprised, if you have been fearless in  your attempts, to find yourself landed  on your feet *  Fifteen minutes of these movements,  frith skinning the cat as the last movement, is plenty for your first few  weeks' work. At the end of a fortnight  of the horizontal bar your arms should  be knotty and your chest broadened.  Be suae to take five minute cold rubs  on gftting up each morning.

SCOURGE OF THE AGE  IS KIDNEY DISEASE  Terrible Increase in   tho Number  of  Deaths   from   This  Ailment.  Dosing Sheep.  Giving medicine to sheep and lambs  is often a matter of some difficulty,  and to those inexperienced in such  matters, the following method can be  recommended : Secure a piece of  black rubber tubing live inches long  and three-quarters of an inch in bore,  and "select a four-ounce bottle, into  the neck of which this rubber tube  will pass with diriicu.ty, fitting as tight  as a stopper. Measure your liquid  and introduce into thc bottle.and when  you have inserted the rubber tubing  catrh it between the thumb and t'ore-  finger and shake the bottle for several seconds. Now back the sheep up  into the corner of the shed, and hold-  :ng the head up, slightly open the  iiu.uth and introduce the rubber tubing on the top of the tongue and well  back in the mouth. Nine out of  tin sheep will drink any dose in this  manner with little difficulty. Be sure  and give the animal time, and do not  insist upon its drinking while it is  trying to breathe.���������American Cultivator.  Flavor of Choice Butter.  The proper aroma of butter is a  very important matter for study.' lt  is not due to thc volatile acids, as  was formerly supposed, for the butter  aroma has been found to be produced  in solutions containing no butter fat.  ���������Evidently- this aroma is in some way  connected with the first products of  decomposition which are -set up in the  cream as the result of bacteria growth.  Lut these decomposition products are  very numerous and not at ail desirable. The bacteria which grow in  ripened cream have been found to  produce all sorts of disagreeable'.flavors and tastes in milk and cream if  allowed  to act  unhindered;-'  It seems to be only the first products of the decomposition that have  the pleasant flavor, thc later stages  of the decomposition giving rise to  products of a very different character,  loo long a ripening results in the  production of a butter containing too  strong flavors, and one of the difficulties of butter makers is to determine the right length of time for proper ripening. Indeed, the greatest  difficulty_ which the butter maker has  to* meet is in obtaining a uniform pro-  du5.'* Proceeding according to rules  wnrch his experience has taught him,  he can usually obtain a good product,  but even the best butter makers wiil  sometimes fail from causes not explained.���������W    ~  Breeding; Draught Stallions.  The United States is as far ahead in  breeding fast horses as it is behind in  breeding work horses. The reason is  obvious.

Dodd's Kidney Pills the OneB'Kem-  edy That Never Fails to Cure  It,  No Matter How or  Where It is Found.  Of all the diseases tho human body  has to combat in its struggle for  health, the one that is steadily growing in strength and terrors is Kidney  Disease. Quietly, stealthily as a serpent, it creeps on its victim till the  latter is enveloped in its folds, and  the greatest physicians the world has  ever'known stand helpless before it  As the last fold goes around the strug  gling victim and the doctor shakes  his head and whispers "Bright's Disease," hope fades to nothing, and the  sorrowing friends feel that death has  marked their loved one for its own.  The alarming increase this terrible  disease is making is evidenced by the  columns of almost every newspaper.  For not among the lowly of the earth  alone does it look for its victims.  Statesmen, judges, emiuent lawyers,  and honored divines are numbered,  among those who in recent months  have gone down to their graves with  the fell marks of this dread disease  upon their bodies. In fact, so prevalent has the disease become that a  celebrated New York specialist stated recently that not one person in a  hundred was free from some taint , of  Kidney Disease.

BRIGHT'S DISEASE CURED.  Bright's Disease has invariably  yielded to a treatment of Dodd's  Kidney Pills, no matter how firm a  hold it had secured on its victim.  Possibly 'the most talked of case of  recent date is that of Alice Maud  Parker, of Shubenacadie, Hants Co.,  N.S. The full story of his case will  be fsund in the current number of  Dodd's Magazine. Herewith a short  statement from the young lady's mother is appended:  Two doctors pronounced my daughter's illness Bright's Disease, and  gave her up to die. Her eyelids swell-,  ed till she could hardly see; her legs  from her ankles to her knees swelled.  Her belt in health was twenty inches,  when she was at her worst it was 18  inches. Then she gave up all other  treatment and started to take Dodd's  Kidney- Pills. By the time she had  faken thc first box I saw a change.  It took a long time to bring her back  to perlect health, but Dodd's Kidney  Pills did it. To-day my daughter is  in perfect health.  o Mrs. T. G.

It Is reported that Admiral AloxielT, the  Russian Viceroy In the far oast, told hla  officers that Russia would not mind Diluting Japan if she had threo docks at Port  Arthur and two at Dalny. At present  Japan has far more adequate ae-  jcmmodatlon for the repair ot vessels In  the far east In tho event of an unfavorable engagement than Russia could  command. Whether the Admiral ls rlcht-  ly reported or not. the situation Is an  outlined ln the language accredited  to him, and that Is one reason why Russia delays the negotiations. The longer  the delay the? greater her naval and military strength In the far east. When her  reinforcements of warships now on the  way reach far eastern waters hor naval  strength will be vastly superior to that  of Japan, and she would not need to bemoan the lack of proper docking facilities, because the loss or disablement of a  vessel would not mean so much to her.  Because she was not roady for war she  played for time, and though she may  still avert hostilities, ln the end the world  may depend upon It Japan, alone or  with China, or some of the European nations, will be faco to face with Russian  naval and military forces in the far enst.  ready for any emergency. Russia has  not been nearly so well prepared tor war  during the long period ot negotiations at'  Japan has, and the admirable restraint  shown by the latter, with that fact before her, Is an object lesson for some of  the European  nations.  _A lump of soda laid upon the drain  pipe down which w.iste water passes  will prevent the clogging of the PH1"?  willr** grease, especially it thc pipe lie  flooded every week with boiling water.

The London Dally .'Express'has discovered that the average age for matrimony  in Britain is steadily rising, and as Its  authority quotes from the Government  reports as follows :���������"Between the yearn  lSTliSO the number of male 'infants,' an  the law calls theni, was 77.8 out of every  1,000 marriages, and ofchild wives there  were 217 per 1,000. Every year since then  the number has dropped. The last statistics (for 1901) give only, fifty husband*  and sixty wives who were registered rtrv  'under age'  out of every 1,000."  The Express continues :���������"Among the  very poor, child marriages are still rather  numerous, and In the ranks of the wealthy  there.are also many girl wives. In the  one case, extreme poverty is a direct incentive to early marriage, because there iu  none of that sense of 'keeping up a position' which acts as a. preventive among  the middle classes, and a working wifr.  Is looked upon as an additional source oi  Income. On the other hand, of course.  a wealthy man finds no drawback to his  position by marrying young. In the middle class, on the contrary, men with limited incomes are becoming more and more  chary of plunging into the 'extravagance' of matrimony. The thousand little luxuries of modern days aro now looked upon as necessities, and these make  life more expensive. Women also are not  content with the same modest households  and the same quiet life which satisfied  their mothers. Consequently tlie average age of marriage is constantly rising."  All of which docs not seem to alter  the fact that lovers nre as numerous as  ever, and that when the right man asks  the right girl an experiment In housekeeping usually follows. This year it is,  of course, the privilege ,of the girls to  do a little asking themselves.   '  rible noise they make. But it is rather  costly noise, lor the simple reason  that it tears and inflames the lungs.  The lungs consist of an extraordinarily delicate sponge-like tissue, which  sometimes gets inflamed and choked  with phlegm. When wc try to get rid  of this substance we cough. But, obviously, H we remove it violently we  must necessarily injure Uie delicate  lung tissue.  Therefore, train yourself to cough as  gently as possible���������New York World.  Keep the Shades Up.  The habit of keeping the window  shades down, which is so common a  practice, even, when'there is ho direct  sun glare oh the window, is a direct  setting at naught of physiological  principles which teach us the importance of health, of both body and mind,  of an abundance of light. Sir James  Criclrton-Browne, in an address on  light and sanitation, delivered at the  Jubilee Conference of the Manchester  and Salford Sanitary Association, says:  "I have spoken of light .as purifying our atmospheric environment and  as freeing us from certain superficial  parasitic distempers, and I wish now  to remind you that it has stiil more  deep and intimate human relations of  a sanitary nature; tor light is a necessary condition of mental and bodily  well-being. Its tonic physical "effects  are     everywhere       recognized.       All  wrappers,   the  boxes,  and   the  smokers,  and then you have the Egyptian cigitr-  -ette.    .  "But still," contends the enthusiast,  "there can be no coffee liko the genuine  Turkish coffee. Ah, think of the Arabian Nights! And Schehcrezade!

To tlris I can only reply that they  may have had good coffee in Turkey in  the time when Sultan Hnroun-al-Rnsehrd  walked his city's streets incognito, but  they have not now. You can get better  Turkish coffee (so called) in Xew York  thnn in Turkey; you can get much bety  ter Turkish coffee in the Hoffman House  thnn you can in Stnmboul, Pera, Scutari,  Smyrna, Beyroot, Jerusalem or Cairo.  ���������How about the luBcious figs of Smyrna?

Jamie Soutar lived at thc extreme end  ef a long, strnggling settlement which  extended for nbout three miles tlirough  what in tho early fifties was a part of  the Canadian bnckwouds. Jamie and it  number of his neighbors had left their  homes in Scotlnnd to make their wny  in the new world; and with others on  the same errand bent, with whom they  had ample time to become woll acquainted on tire emigrant ship during  Its long vovnge of over tnree months  between Greenock and Quebec, tliey hnd  gono into the wilderness, each '-taking  up" one of the regulation lots of land,  or, more fortunate than others, some being able to purchase one or more lots,  with their improvements, from some  earlier settler whose courage had failed  him.  They bad but little experience to help  them; they knew.notning of either woodcraft or farming; they endured privations which now would be deemed impossible even in the wildest parts of the  country; but they, persevered with a  steady cheerfulness, nnd each year saw  the little clearing nt the side of the  strip of corduroy whicli did duty as a  highway grow larger, their log-built  houses more comfortable, nnd their lot  more endurable.  But while they were thus7engaged in  a fierce struggle, almost for existence,  they never forgot the land they had left  behind them; it wns still "home" to  them, end jemained so to generations of  their descendnnte. Tfcwy had brought  with them the beliefs, the superstitions,  end the customs, some of them good and  some, otherwise, of the Old Country.  (Still, it may well be the case that these  things, however objectionable they may  appear to us in these days, helped them  In no small measure to continue the  struggle in the face of almost insuperable difficulties.  Of the customs which doubtless helped  to interrupt the hardship and monotony  i of existence, none was looked r forward  'to with more lively anticipation or furnished a more interesting subject for discussion after the event, than those  which centered ahout the New Year.  Work and anxiety and care were for  the time forgotten, and they gave themselves np to the enjoyment of the fester*., season, perhaps not always too  Wisely, but with the hardships and discouragements of their lot, now but a  memory, we may well, when we look  ���������upon this part of their experience, say  with Scotland's poet:. .

The New Year's celebration began  With the .stroke, "o' twal," and as mid-  pight found Jamie Soutnr wishing '"a  {rude' New Year" to his next neighbor,  Eandy "-icDonnld, we "cannot do better  than follow" them and gain a, picture of  the mnnner in which they celebrated the  festive season.  Jamie was provided with a substantial  tottle of whiskey, anu his good wishes  for his neighbor were sealed by a.liberal  (taste of it. Thus fortified, Jamie arrd  Sandy, who was similarly munitioned,  set out for the house of Duguld iicTav-  Ish, their next neighbor.  Dugald was a Highlander, full of Celtic fire,~ and already partially full of  whiskey, when Jamie nnd Sandy entered  the house without the ceremony of,  knocking at the door. They were Lowland and very deliberate, but Dugald's  welcome was "Heclnn' an* hearty." nnd  f*iven hefore they had crossed the  hreshold. "It's Chamie an' Santy, an1  ye'er fery welcome. Oh, yes, an' it's ta  Kew Year, an' she must prce tn whus-  fcey.* Na, na. she'll no use her pottle, for  she'll be hafin' need for her, for she will  be gaein' tae Tam Anerson, an' Tarn, her  whuskey's no sae gude but ye'll pe want-  In* what's petter."  And Dugald insisted on supplying the  refreshments out of his own store, for,  If he was not altogether as prosperous  M some of his neighbors, it was universally admitted that the fault for the  greater part lay in his generous hospitality and readiness to help his friends,  who, it is needless to say, were many.  But the? occasion must be properly  celebrated, and so, accompanied by Dugald, _who,_had ^furnish edhirnselfiwith. a  double supply of "usquabne - tne��������� mnk up  Year's morning.

Tam made divers attempts to get off  his speech, but without avail, andiwith  each interruption there wns n. fresh recourse to ine .supply of whiskey. At  nine o'clock of that New Year's morrv  ing Tam Anerson was seated in his big  chair repeating in maudlin sentences the  set speech which lie hnd prepared; Dugald McTavish wns dancing the "Heelnn*  lling," Sandy McDonald was challenging  all and sundry lo a disputation on the  question of predestination, Jamie Soutar  was in a corner singing "John Anderson,  My Jo John," two others.were, fighting,  and the rest of them were asleep.  Thus Was the ndvent of the New  Year celebrated, and the event for many  days afterward recalled with much satisfaction. Sandy and Jamie and Dugald  and all their generation havclong since  passed away, and their children's children are now in their place. The forest  has given way to broad fields, and the  log houses to stately dwellings. Again  the last hour of the old year approaches.  Through the ..windows of the village  church the lights shine out, and within  are the people assembled with bowed  head and bended knee, giving thanks foi'  the blessings of the old year, and making  supplications for the new; then, as the  bells ring out the tidings that the new  year has come, with grateful though t*-  for the past and with hope for the future, their voices rise in the grand Dox-  ology, "Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow."  Origin of the Names of Countries.  The following countries, it is said  were originally named by the Phoenicians, the greatest commercial people in  the world. The names, in the Phoenician language, signified something characteristic of tlie places which they designate.  Europe signifies a country of White  complexion, so named because the inhabitants were of a lighter complexion  than those of Asia and Africa.  Asia signifies between or in the middle, from the fact that the geographers  placed it between Europe nnd Africa.  Africa signifies the lnnd of -corn or  ������.its. It was celebrated for its abundance of corn, and all sorts of grain.  Siberia signifies thirsty or dry���������very  ehnracteilstic.  Spain, a country of rabbits or conie=.  It was once so infested with these animals that it sued Augusta for an army  to destroy them.  Italy, a country of pitch, from its  yielding great quantities of blnck pitch.  Calabria, nlso for the same reason.  Gaul, modern France, signifies yellow-  and juice of a lemon, one-half pound  of finely minced suet, one-half pound  oi finely chopped apples when cored  and peeled, mixed spice to taste, and  half a nutnu g  grated.  Beat all well together in a basin, and  stir in one glass of sherry and a gill  of brandy. Many old-fashioned cooks  add meat t*o the mincemeat ; if meat is  used, a piece of liticly-minced boiled  tongue will br- found best. Some  cooks add minced almonds; these are  better pounded with .1 little rose water.  The patty pans should bc greased wilh  a lump of butter and lined with the  finest of past.-, thc mincemeat put in  and covered with paste, '.hen nick  round neatly. Put into a quick oven  for five minutes, then the heat slackened for a quarter of an hour will bake  them.     Turn out of the tins at once.  Fried nuts���������These are dainty little  ��������� additions to the luncheon or supper  table. Good Housekeeping furnishes  the recipe. Cold cooker farina, oatmeal or other cereal is rcheatid and  seasoned with butter, =salt and pepper.  When cool enough to shape with the  hands into small balls, dip in crushed  walnuts, then in beaten egg, again in  walnuts and fry in deep fat.  Apple sauce���������Everyone knows how  to make apple sauce 01* a sort, but the  best way is to first pee! the apples, one  at a time, then cut each one into  quarters, then core and cut into  chumps, and throw into a clean sauce-  pah into which has btcn put a gill of  water, two lumps of sugar1, and a mite  of lemon peel, put on lid tightly, set it  over a small jet of gas or near a bright,  clear fire, and watch them boil, then  draw them back and allow them'-to  simmer until quite a mash. Stir round  many, times'whilst cooking, then pour  all into a turem. This is the only  way to make good apple sauce, but  you must do it yourself. Cook peels  the apples thickly, then removes half  the apple taking away the core, leaves  them to boil, bubble and "bum, .while  she attends to something else ; she  can't help it. but then you see the  ���������sauce is spoiled and wasted.  Preparing beans��������� Prof. Harry  Snyder of the Minnesota Experiment  Station of the Department of Agriculture says that housekeepers could vastly increase the digestibility of beans by  parboiling them with a little soda, in  the proportion of half a teaspoonful of  baking soda to a pound of beans and  two quarts of wat;r. The ordinary  white navy bean, he asserts, while it  contains when dry 22 5 of protein, or  muscle and energy, is very hard to digest, and taxes the digestive apparatus  more than .almost any other vegetable  food.  Horseradish Sauce���������This sauce also  must be made by the wife or  daughter. The horseradish should  be put into water for a night.  then scrubbed. When clean and dry  scrape off the. thinnest of skins, .and  scrape it from end to end with a piece  of glass. Broken glass is sharp and  cuts it finely. Put lhe horseradish into a basin with a tablespoonful of made  mustard, a pinch of salt, and enough  vinegar to soak it. When thoroughly  mixed, pour over about a half gill of  cream, slowly mixing the whole time  with two forks. Sweeten to taste. The  cream -will never turn if made in this  manner, then put into a clean  tureen.  Stewed prunes���������Stewed prunes have  become a byword and a jest, but if  nicely prepared they are not ridiculous  or worthy of scorn by any means.

Tam wns not a favorite. He was  tmnll of stature, wilh what his neighbors described as a "wenscned" fnee, and  an enger, resiles* mnnner which led  eome of these same neighbors to com-  . pore hirrr to a rat running hither and  thither trying to pick up something 01*  .value. Tam had lived, up to the" lust  year, in the worst'house in the settlement, nrid his miserly instincts not only  stood in the. way of doing his neighbors  a good turn when the opportunity offered, but led him to keep even his own  family on a very short allowance of the  ordinary comforts of life. Four years  before this particular New Year a young  Englishman bought the . land adjoining  Tam Anerson's fn rm ��������� He was possessed  of eome money, but no experience. At  great expense he elenred away the, forest nnd; built a large stone dwelling,  which he furnished throughout in a manner that would have been considered  luxurious even in thclOld Country. Two  years later, with his resources exhausted, he was glad' to sell it,.'with all the  furnishings, to Tam Anerson for a tithe  of its value.  Tam was a vain man, and his ambition wns now to be looked upon by his  neighbors ns the'"bnillic," or thc acknowledged head of the settlement, but  his miserly instincts, tlirough which hc  fell even to the depth of watering the  whiskey which he olTcrcd them, a capital offence in Dugald's eyes, .earned for  him their contempt and  even ill-will.

John was not n sv.ecossful king. The  first thing that he did on corning to the  T.hror.-n was to hnve n go at the bi-diops.  If v.-p hnd been Ki'n** of England at that*  period we should hnve hastened to toe  the line with our glorious ancestry and  to invite the bi-ihups to step into the  ring nnd put 'cm up.  When people, however, look back  ("-.long the dim vista of time, nnd think  harsh end bitter tilings of John, there  comes a moment when their strong  voices break with errrotion. nrrd the irrr-  bidden tear begins to well up in their  Mushing eyes. For then they nre thinking with moist gratitude of the Mngna  Ohnrtn, which gave to our great country  its blessed title of freedom, and permitted common, ordinary people liko yorr  nnd ourselves to live.  The Magna Clinr'tn was signed in the  year 1215 on Easter Monday. A.s there  was 11 cheap excursion fricn Waterloo  on that day, John said he would inert  the barons* at lltinriyinedc where tlrey  could talk the htisiiicss over in between  tho sculling races. The barons did not  Quiie approve of John's oir-hnnd way of  miking of their lovely Chsrrta, and when  t.hey met hiin nt the. station they crowded round 'him quite rudely. John  thought nt first that it wns only his  barons' enthusiastic desire to give hiin  a' cordial welcome, until he found that  his watch nnd chain nnd his diamond  scarf-pin had got mislaid in the scuffle.  John tried several ways of escaping  the signing of the Charter. At first he  said he hnd hit his thumb with the ham-  rrn-r while hanging up framed texts in  Ilia: bedroom at home, nnd therefore  couldn't hold a pen. When he found  that didn't go down he tried to stjind  on his dignity. In order to convince the  barons thet ho didn't, care tuppence for  the lot of tlicrn ho put his hands in his  pockets and kicked his dog in the stomach just to 3how his independence.  Neither of these brilliant schemes  worked, however. One of the barons  puched John from behind, while Fitz-  YVnlter, the Pride of Bcrmondsev,  bumped quite rudely into the King, nut  then apologized by saying that hc had  tripped up over himself accidentally.  Alter a lot of hard words had passed  on both sides, the barons gave John to  understand definitely that if he didn't  sign the thing there would be a rather  untidy scene. Seeing that he was cor  nered, John snid a naughty word, nnd  signed on, and thus gave us the*price  less liberties which our forefathers bled  to maintain.  As soon as John returned to .-London,  his first business was to try and get a  bit of his own back, as the poet has so  beautifully expressed it. Agents were  sent to the Continent to hire mercenaries, who were offered an engagement for  two months certain, with the usual extra for mntinces. In this way John  collected quite an army, nnd he chased  his barons up to Scotlnnd, nnd on tht  wny there he burnt all the villages and  ���������haystacks he came across. Some of the  inhabitants as they were being suspended by the heels over slow fires, were  quite surprised to learn that nil this red  trouble wns the first result of the Great  Charter for securing to the people "of  England their priceless liberty. Many of  tlrem .said nt the time thnt they would  lather be without" the Charter, and scoop  in what liberty tbey could for themselves with a pitchfork or-a pole-axe its  they used to in the old days.  While John was rushing nbout the  kingdom, it happened that he had to  cro?s the Wash, in Lincolnshire. During the crossing the tide reared up on  its hind legs nnd went for the transport  ships and upset everything. John and  his second wife escaped by wading  ashore, but all their trurks and brown-  pnper parcels containing the crown jewels and the week's housekeeping money  were swept awny into the eold and  soughing ecu. This loss upset John su  much that he turned irrto the nearest  convent nnd cried like n child. A few  days after thnt he got feverish and died,  and the historians are not quite sure  whether he passed nwny in consequence  oi gri;*f or whether somebody poisoned  him. Still, it is well known that grief  seldom kills, whereas poison gets there  every time when it is administered by an  expert. And somebody may have hit  upon the idea that it wus nbout time  this burning and killing was brought up  with a jerk.

Grant asked  the  senators how  tliey   liked   the   new   horse.      Conkling  shook  his   head.    "What's   the  matter,  Mr.  Senator?"  asked  Grant.    Conkling  looked the horse over and said, "What  did you give  for  him, Mr.  President?"  "Pour  hundred  dollars."      "H'ml"  said  .Conkling.     "I'd   rather   have   the   four  hundred dollars than the horse."   Grant  puffed a cloud of smoke and replied, in  his usual cool manner, "That's what the  butcher thought."  While Senator Thomas C. Piatt of  New York was enjoying his recent honeymoon he was approached by a certain  Pennsylvania politician of note, who  said: "See here, senator, you won't mind  if I sny confidentially that you're no  raving beauty. Now what I'd like to  know is how your wife wns ever attracted' to such a plain person as you are?"  "I'm glad you asked me," returned the  senator, smiling broadly, "and I'll tell  you���������in the strictest confidence, of  courso. She first fell in love with me  through seeing the newspaper pictures  which the cartoonists made of me.
