The ICa-no-la Concert, Co.. appeared  al. the opera house on rVridny and Saturday nights of last week. The .bill  they put on was certainly worthy'of  larger houses than tliey received.  This is a specialty company, nothing  moie, nothing less. What they al-  tompl they put on in first class shape.  Their work is reiined, amusing and  high class in every pari icular.  Doubtless many havn seen the  majority of the specialities they introduce and it is not new, Imt. nt nay rate  it was well put on. Belter nn old act  well dono than a new one botched.  DR. JORDAN, PRESIDENT OF  Dr. Jordan, who appears above, is  the president of a newly foi mod company. The Great West Optical Mnnu-  f.ictiu-ing and Supply Co., whose advertisement appears elsewhere in this  issiie^ ' *  Mr. Jordan is an eye specialist and  optician of unquestionable skill. Graduating from the famous Chicago University's School, of Optics, some 15  years ago, he has htid wide experience  in a number of the large cities of the  ���������States und was of late connected with  the Boston Optical Company.  The Dr. has, in his extensive, practice, met with all the peculiar diseases  little nnd great, pertaining to the eyesight and is a thoroughly competent  man in all respects.  The company, which has its headquarters in Vancouver and also branches in AVinnipeg and the east, is  .exceedingly fortunate in securing the  services of so eminent a specialist ns  president of the company.  As Dr. Jordan states the eye is the  chief of all our human' senses and the  proper care of tluit organ should be  our one and chief aim. The.present  ill success in much of school work is  .partly due to defective eyesight; 75  per cent of the pupils who enter the  primary schools -with normal sight are  when finishing college seriously in  need of eye treatment. Weak nnd  defuoiive eyesight, continues the Dr.,  are responsible for one half tlie ills of  the system .'���������.*> a wJtolQ. It ha/< been  aaid "The eyes are the windows of the  soul," nlto claims Dr. Jordan, are they  windows nf nmirly all physical complaints. Any bodily fillinr-nt will show  itself in the eyes as quickly an anywhere therefore, whal wo propose lo  do, says lie, is not on cxaiuinbtion to  give patients glasses indisciiminately,  nut such whose eyc-ight can be icine-  died by our lenses we treat, those  whoso eyes nhow other bodily trouble  we   turn   over to the  physician.     In  th's way we wish io work iu concert  wilh the medical men as wo feel wi  are indispsirjuble  to them and they to  US.  ���������Significant, is it, thai the Great. West  Optical Company has its hendminrters  not_in_ the. (_*;ist _ irii(l_iL_bi'.'incli_in_the  west, but vice versa. In Vaneouvei  they will manufacture nearly all the  material used except' of course the  Ien-cs. All the grinding and polishing  however will be done there: This is  another gratifying evidence of the advantages to be derived from the Great  West. Among the other members-of  the company arc Dr. Ernest Hull, of  the Burrurd Sanitarium, and Dr.  Townley ns well as numerous prominent physicians on the coast.  Mr. Maitland, who i.s working in  conjunct ion with Dr. Jordan in introducing the Optical Company through  13. C-gave n very enter-taming and  instructive lecture in the .'Young Men's  Consei vntivu club rooms on Friday  and Saturday last. Mr. Maitland is an  able speaker and wilh the numerous  janterii slide 'illustrations he used  made the. evening both interesting and  profitable. In general the speaker  said that as our sense of sight was  Immeasurably greater in delicacy nnd  usefulness than nny of our other  senses it was worthy of our utmost  cue and attention. He pointed out  -the marvellous ability of tho eye"as a  physical organ in that it can so readily  detect nnd distinguish color, the intricate delicacy of its mechanism, how it  instantaneously accommodates itself  to the multitude of tlie vnrious shade's-  of light nnd unconsciously contracts  and dilates to a perfect focus of any  object. As a subject of study it i.s  perhaps the most interesting of any  line of work, in thnt the knowledge to  )ie obtained thereby i.s unlimited. It  ever present** iifcw |ind varied avenues  of thought to the student of option.  Mr. Miiillund gave numerous figures  showing the great, cai labilities of the  eye niul convinced his hearer's that the  organ of sight. Is tuoKt fearfully and  wondurfully made. In Its most intricate  delicacy nnd its infinite power of expression. The human eye is the most  convincing evidence ot the omnipotence and omniscience of the powers  of the Creator,  St. Patrick's Concert���������Harbor  Lumber Co.

C,   March 18.���������The  initial'band concert given by the Camborne brass bund last night���������in honor  of St..  Patrick's day���������was ono of the  most? enjoyable social functions ever  lield in this embryo city.   Few places  in the Province, with  a population of  Camborne's size can boast of such an  excellent aggregation of musical talent  as   is   to   be found in the Camborne  brass   band, an organization-, by the  way that has been in existence barely  three months.     It is nlso satisfactory  to note that  the efforts put forth by  its members to -entertain the citizens  and  visitors from Comaplix,  Beaton  and the lumber camps, was fruitful of  splendid firianciaT results, so that in a  short time the hand  will be equipped  with u. full complement of music and  instruments.''.'. Then too the members  have at their head in the person of J.  Findley,  a conscientious and untiring  conductor.   Bert Norlhey, tho capable  secretary-treasurer of the organization  must" also come in for praise", for his  share  in   making the performance so  successful.  Besides several selections hy the  band that were played with splendid  spirit and interpretation the following  members took part in the programme:  G. R. Northey in a clarinet solo; Frank  McAbee sang "My Wild Irish Rose."  Diamond brothers gave a bnppy ragtime selection iu their banjo duett.  Messrs. Findlay and Northey sang a  duett, "Upper Ten and Lower Five.*'  Bandmaster Findlay; was down for a  cornet solo. In each case the performers received henrty. encores and  responded .-.willingly.,. ���������-. As'an accompanist Dr..Lazier was all that- coiild.be  asked and added much to the pleasure  of the'evening. Afler the programme  came a. social hop for which the full  band pUyed the dance music.  The Harbor Lumber Company is  arranging for the establishment of  additional camps further up Fish river  from this point. J. E. Branford has  the coutiact for hauling 50 tons of  supplies.  B. E.

Salmon Ann.  Although spring is a little backward,  farmers are getting ready for the  seeding.  We notico improvements going on  on all sides. D. T. Forbes has moved  into liis now house and is pruning his  orchard.  Pruning and spraying has been the  order all around the last few months  and everything looks favorable for  another good crop of fruit this season.  We have several families who have  just arrived, looking up farms to locate  on and yet'there is room for more in  this beautiful valley.  The Farmers Institute are making  nrrangements to have Mr. Sharp,  manager of the Dominion Experimental Farm, attend the next meeting to  answer nny questions that the farmers  may wish to rusk about.  Mr. Itovall, of the Revelstoke Dairy,  was in.town Thursday on business.  There is a movement on foot to have  our district incorporated into a municipality which, will be an improvement  on the present method. Still all seem  contended and happy, and as soqu ns  the mud dries yo.u may sec things  huuimjng until the seed und the great  number of fruit trees that arc coming  are planted.  W.

Kven time had  given up trying to indent it.  I'.r-.oul d'Avrieomt had only to push  the -eaves of the heavy oaken door in  order to gain admission to the mansion of hi.s noble hostess. Thc sight  thnt caught his eye in lhe courtyard  by thc fading twilight was so strange  that, in order to sen it better, he con  cealcd himself behind a clump of  sweet bay that flanked the entrance  on the inside.  An old-fashioned, siii"*riinnuated  chariot, widowed of horses but not  of a coachman���������for a white-haired old  man sat on thc box as proudly as if  hc had under his whip apair ofhorses  worth five hundred louis���������was drawn  up in front of the perron. An old  woman, leaning upon two younger  ones, came down the steps and made  ready to enter the vehicle. Before taking her seat she accosted the honorary coachman in a thick and broken  voice:  "Arc you holding your horses we'll,  ThegonnecV"  "Madame, has nothing to fear," answered the man in a very loud tone,  removing his hat as hc did so.  "Good, my friend; bc careful You  know what a poltroon I ain in a  carriage."  Madame de la Mcaugon sat dow-.i on  the back seat of the carriage and her  two companions ' mi the front one.  Two maids in caps raised the monumental step, and one of them opened  the leaves of the porte-cochere. Meanwhile the'old coachman, descemii/ia;  noiselessly from his scat, made an  authoritative gesture to which two  vigorous fellows, hidden in an uncle  of the. wall, responded by co*.:;in'i  obediently to take their places at t!.o  swingle-trees. Thegonncc was at the  head or the pole; the two maids weie  at tire back, ready to push.  From the inside of the carriage  came the voice ol" the Marquise commanding:  "To the house of Madame du Fao-  uet!"  At once the human team stitrencd  its muscles, the equipage shook,  crossed the threshold, and disappeared in the street. The lieutenant niir.-ht  well have believed himself thc only h'.;-  man being left behind-. Hut, as he w;:s  wondering how he was to find his wa  to his room in this deserted dwelling, a sound of hobnailed hoots became audible in the dark court.  "Is that you, Moreau?" called lhe  officer.

Five minutes later Raoul was making his night toilette in,a chamber so  vast that the single wax caiidlc only  succeeded in easting au uncertain  glimmer. Lost in the immense space,  the scanty furniture, the whole of  which, saving llic colossal bed, could  have been stowed in a garret, scc'uicd  still more scanty. In striking contrast, on the chestnut table, darkened by years,-glittered the silver, crystal, and ivory of the elegant dre.-s-  ing-case of a man of fashion,  "Oh, come!*' said the lieutennr-!;.  while faithful Moreau was pulling o'ii  his boots, "what sort of a phantasmagoria have I just been looking at?  Are these people fools, or is it the  custom of the country to substitute  coachman for the horses?

The Vicomte d'Avrieomt was thc j  son of a noble ot ancient lineage and  an enormously rich citizen's daughter. Like an intelligent fellow, he had  appropriated from this mesalliance its  best parts, taking from his father his  name, character and sentiments,  which were those of a man of good  1 blood, and from his mother, who died  young, two very handsome dark eyes  and one or two solid millions. But, if  he made use of his eyes���������and very  good use, for that matter���������hc had as  yet merely the reversion of thc millions. While wailing for his father to  leave'them to him, hc lived on his  pay of two hundred and sixteen  francs a month, without incurring  more debts than were becoming.  True, to this somewhat meagre sum  the Comte d'Avricourt had the good  habit of adding a monthly subsidy ot  three thousand francs. It is a system  which fathers who have sons in the  inferior grades of the army would do  well to adopt.  Raoul was the best-hearted fellow in  the world. Worn out with want of  sleep, he lay down between the sheets  of a marquise whose granddaughters  had not the wherewithal to buy  meat. Hence he slept badly. When  Moreau came to wake him, Raoul  was dreaming that lhe Marquise, 'accompanied by her grand-children, was  driving in the Bois in a victoria for  which he had paid himself.  conttr,     contemplating    tne un'-nown ��������� j.mni=pii������ ������    he,   <?i*d  with ecstasy, so far forgets   himself      "Pardoa   Mademo.������e"e,      to   ;sa.d.  as to murmur half audibly: ft last, " t seems to me that xve n.ct  "It ought to do one good   to   die ; this morning,  under thi glance of eyes like those!"

At the hour appointed, the enemies,  represented by two or three companies of the line, attempted the surprise; but tliey were received in good  style and hotly pursued into their positions with the alternatives of defeat or success. At ten in the morning they were still fighting. A platoon performed at a gallop a turning  movement in a sunken road.  "Halt!" commanded d'Avricourt,  who led the little troop. Thc tiycnty-  five chasseurs drew rein. The tired  horses stopped at onee, though continuing to drive away flies by kicks  which made the sheaths of the sabres-|  ring against their dripping flanks..  "To the left, in line of battle!"  cried the officer again.  The manoeuvre was performed; the  platoon drew up in a double, line,  leaving a narrow enough space between the horses' heads and the talus  of earth surmounted.by chestiuil irees  which bordered: the other side of the  road;  "What!" grumbled a veteran, "isn't  the day over? What an . invention  these grand manoeuvres are! I'll bet  these flinty-hearted sluggards are going to fire on us again from under  cover. And how mean that is, in  such roads as thisl'V  "Come," said ��������� a non-commissioned  officer, "shut up, you fellows; don't  make so much disturbance! This is  nothing! ... It is only the good God  Who is going to pass on the right  side." -  -;  In "fact, a procession was seen an- !  proaching which was in striking con- ;  trast with the motionless platoon.  A young fellow marched in front,,  holding in one hand a lantern fasten-j  cd to the end of a stall, and ringing j  with the other a copper herl. Then a I  Breton in a short jacket, 'breeches  with flaps hanging down to the ca'i. ���������  a large black hat under his arm, l.:s |  grey hair flowing -on .his shoulders, j  led by the bridle a pony with shaggy i  mane and tail which might have i  nJeasured four feet across the with- j  ers.

I' esently the  sacred procession disappeared at a  corner of the road, while the horsemen, the sabres returned to the  scabbards, continued their march in  tfie opposite direction.  There was not one of these men  who had hot become, more serious. As  1 to the lieutenant, the meeting with  these two supreme consolers, religion  and woman, on thc way to fulf.ll  their sacred mission, had suddenly  thrown him into a train of such  thoughts as do not usually find lodgment under the kepi of an officer of  twenty-eight years.  Once more be saw a death-bed, that  of his mother; a priest was blessing  the dying woman. He heard the last  words of her whom he had tenderly  loved:  "My son, I hope that God will give  you a gpod wife!"  Then, like a living response to the  wish of the dead woman, the mysterious apparition of * moment since recurred to his- mind with strange persistence. Who was this unknown  young girl whom charity was conduct  ing to the death-bed of a pauper?  Eertainly she was a good woman,  and how beautiful she was!  ' Yes, though Raoul d'Avricourt  once more, one would be happy to  die if wept for by those tender and  faithful eyes, and beholding that compassionate hand!  Presently the-platoon came in sight  of the lonely farmhouse where a   formidable breakfast had been ? ordered  the day before for the officers of the  two armies.    Everybody knows   how  two or three dozen oysters and several glasses    of chablis develop    the  dispositions of a nature already good  of itself. Hardly had he returned    to \  his quarters when d'Avricourt   made  an extremely careful  toilette    which  transformed the dusty warrior into a I  cavalier of lofty mien. Then he sent",  to ask the Marquise if hc might have '  the honor of being received    by   her. '  How far we are already from the sim- [  pie visiting card which the lieutenant ;t  liad deemed sufficient the previous evening!  The reply took five minutes in arriving, and these Raoul spent in passing in review before a mirror somewhat tarnished by humidity. Yet it  was a matter of calling upon a blind  lady upon whom all this trouble  would be *���������'was ted. But who" knows?  Mesdeirioiselles de Pordic might bs  there,-perhaps, and everything permitted, him ,to', hope they had good  eyes.       . . ,  Notified that he would be welcome,  Raoul was introduced by Thegonnec,  transformed into'a valet-de-chambre,  into a salon which was in lamentable  harmony with the horseless carriage  and the dinnerwithout a roast. One  would- have said the' auctioneer with  his hammer had passed through it.  On the damasked tapestry of the  walls, faded by time, squares of more  vivid color everywhere guarded the  traces of costly pictures which had  recently disappeared.: Over each door  a plaster panel spread open like a fa-'  tally eloquent white page; everything  had been turned into money.  The Marquise entered, led by her ���������  grand-daughters. This old woman  had a bearing so noble, so sovereignly calm, so perfectly kind, tbat tor  an instant Raoul felt as if he were  the ruined one, and that this grand  lady were ahout to say to him:  "Poor young man!  do not despair.  right  their high caps ol the time of Duch  ess Anne thc eficct of one of those  processions which artists of the .sixteenth century loved to paint or. the  church windows of the period.  demoiselles de Pordic did not resemble each other, or did so as thc red  rose and the white bear mutual likc-  I ness.

They revealed  both purity and tenderness, devotion  and poetry, melancholy and courage,  but above all the glorious radiance of  a loyal and intrepid soul .Assuredly  this beautiful personage would have  attracted attention anywhere. 15ut ir.  the depths of this Breton desert, in  the mystic frame of this astere landscape, by the dim light shed through  thc thick foliage on this strange  scene, the apparition shone out with  thc charm of thc unexpected and in  thc harmony of a decoration which  seemed to have been made especially'  for her. ���������  The little procession passed in front  of the chasseurs, who presented  sabres, while their horses, champing  their bits, seemed to be smiling at  ihe sight of the strange congener  whose cars, withers and croup formed a horizontal line, and whose light-  colored mane almost touched tbe  ground.  The lieutenant had saluted with his  sword as the Host went by. But when  the beautiful blonde young girl passed  him the shining blade was. again lowered to thc ground, as if he also  vcre paying homage to this Christian  virgin.  And, in the silence scarcely broken  iiy the.choir-hoy's hell and thc kiicll  that wan toiling in the distance from  an   invisible    steeple.    Raoul d'Avri-  by very little. The three were dressed in black, and one conjectured that  thc dressmaker who had fitted their  gowns lived at no great distance.  "Madame." said d'Avricourt, bowing half a yard lower than one does  nowadays to the duchesses of the  left bank, "it must be difficult to  avoid cursing your invader. I wanted  to lay- at your feet, as soon as possible, my excuses for this involuntary  disturbar.ee."  "Involuntary on your part, sir, hut  not on nu.-ie. I arn a soldier's daughter and T have insisted, in spite of  wy privilege as a defenceless old wo-  r.ian. on bearing my part of the expenses of war. I have been rewarded  by having a well-bred man sent to  me. Apropos," added the blind woman, with a gaiety surprising to  anyone who knew her history, "it  seems we bad a fine escape last night.  But, thanks to- you, I was appraised  beforehand that the city would not be  taken."  "It will not be taken for a week;  until then you are condemned to the  tediousness of our presence."  "The tediousness could not be  great, alas! At least, you arc not  too badly oft in my house? Your horses agree well with mine, I hope.  They are not accustomed to seeing  strangers; but they arc old, and  obliged to be peaceable."  Mesdemoisellcs ������ie Pordic became  red as cherries in listening to these  words. As to Raoul, hc had scarcely stopped looking at one of the  young girls, the blonde, as she had  kept hp.r eyes obstinately bent on llic  floor, which is sometimes, for eyes  of eighteen years, the best way of  seeing very well.  those soldiers whom we fou \ in the  Kergrist road were under Monsieur's  command. How line it was, all those  armed cavaliers in battle array, luw-  crin their sabres before a poor priest  who seemed the image, ot peace!"  "And before you. who seemed the  angel of charity, Mademoiselle. I sec  that you do not drear! fatigue when  doing good is in question."  "Alas! it could not fatigue me to  return to the house of poor Annie,  who leaves little children without  bread or shelter." x  "You will deign to receive my alms  for your proteges?" said Kaoul,  drawing out his pocketbook.  "Oh!" cried the young girl, her  eyes shining with joy, "how good you  are!' How the dear little things will  bless our meeting! They have gained  bread for the whole winter from it."  "And I," said Raoul softly, feeling  once more the emotion of the night  before, "have gained from it memor-'  ies which will last longer than the  winter."  Yvonne made no answer, and for a  moment silence reigned in the salon  of the Marquise.  "Madame," the officer said at last  to his hostess, who with tense neck  and watchful ear ivas waiting for the  sequel of the conversation, "I see  that it is unfortunately impossible to  accompany your grandchildren in their  promenades."   '  "My health will hot permit it. All  I can do is to get into the carriage  three times a week to go and spend  the evening with.an old neighbor still  more to be pitied than I, for she is  paralyzed and does not leave her armchair."  The conversation continued for son*:-  time. ' The Marquise spoke, to the  young man of his family. It seemed  they had alliances in common.  "Well," said Madame de la Macu-  gon, "since we are. relatives,, or nearly so, you must dine with mc to-moi-  row evening. I had a chef who has  left me, and whose place has heen vn-  cant ever since. But a soldier in the  field accommodates himself to everything, and these little ones will do  their best to prevent you from famishing."  This time the "little ones" became  pale with terror, arid four great beseeching eyes were raised to the officer, as if to say:  "We hope you will not have the  cruelty to', accept."  But he seemed not to notice.,.  "Madame," said he, "a person more  discreet than I would feel bound to  refuse. For my part, I .accept, only,  since this is war-time, you must permit me to impose my conditions. My  orderly; who could give Vatcl points,  will? take possession of your ovens,  and you will?share our booty."  "Fie! sir officer, Booty! Can you  be conducting yourselves like Prussians or Cossacks?"  "Not at all, although imitation is  the order of the day. We made hecatombs of game in our cavalry.charges  and I brought back my holsters -full  of it."  It was the young man's turn to  blush at a falsehood which did ; not  deceive Mesdemoisellcs de Pordic in  the,least. Wounded pride was plainly  evident in their glances. But in rising Raoul laid his linger on his lips  and then pointed to their grandmother, smiling with rileasure in her easy-  chair. They under-stood ..the'?' gesture,  and by a spontaneous movement each  oftered her hand to the lieutenant.  On withdrawing, the latter had a  long .conference, with Moreau, who  was aa adept in contrivances of all  sorts.  That evening, wliile they were  brushing their hair in their common  room, Jeanne dc Pordic, the brunette,  said to her sister, continuing a conversation begun much earlier:  "This Vicomte d'Avricourt is really very good-looking. Did you rccog-  dred thousand and tire hundred  francs, for his groom told Thegonnec  that he would have one hundred thousand on his side."  The discussion ccntinucd for some  time longer; then everything was silent in the two white beds. But an  eye that could pierce the shadows  might have seen that, under the mys- I  terious pinion of the Dream, it was  the face of Yvonne, thc saddened  beauty, which now was smiling.  V.  l^-^Hr^nl"^  ;n!ze^KinrW^6ncc?  "The minute be came in. But if  you knew how much better he looks  on a horse, at the head of his nieii,  not so polished, not so well brushed  ���������more like a soldier, in fact. And  then, with all that, such a soft  voice!"  "What! Such a soft voice! for commanding his squadron?"  Yvonne blushed; but she did not,  think it more 'timely now than in the  morning to relate what Raoul had  said of her eyes.  "IIow good he is!" she went on,  without replying. "One hundred  francs! Those poor children are quite  rich���������richer than we are," she added,  with a sad smile. "Ah! in spite of  everything, this meeting, almost beside a death-bed, frightens me a little. Who knows whether wc shall not  regret it?"  "Superstition! Why should wc regret it? 1 never saw a man who inspired conf.dcnce so quickly. He made  grandmother smile again���������is not that  enough to make me adore him?"  "And he will love you. He will  take you and 1 shall remain alone.  You will sec whether I am wrong;  pcop.'e always say 1 have thc second  sight."  "You don't know your trade. If he  loves one of us, it will be you. You  arc blonde, you arc of the Gaelic  type and your name is Yvonne; how  do you suppose a Parisian could resist all that?"  "There!   You have the faculty    of  of laughing at everything. Think that,  to-morrow wo are going to dine   oni  the bounty of this man!" '  "You will have to get used to it  when you are hi.s wife.

But own that my poor wine cellar  has some fine remains."  It was some time since the remains  of the wine cellar of the Marquise  liad become thc property of the hotel-keeper Le Goaziou, who had consented to reconvey several samples  of it to Moreau for this occasion. At  the old lady's words the prorrd  Yvonne reddened and bent her head  over her plate. She had done, nothing but that since dinner began, not  to eat, for she had barely touched  what was placed before her. One  might have fancied she was regretting  her buckwheat, cakes, and possibly  one would not have been wrong.  "I am no connoisseur," said  Jeanne, who thought it more dignified  to look the situation squarely in the  face, "but I would swear that this  wine has made more than one. journey before arriving here."  "That is what makes it so good,"  replied Raoul. "I have never tasted  any which I liked so well. Madame  la Marquise, I drink to your health  and to the honor you are doing ine  at this moment."  The talk became more lively. Raoul  was witty. He would have been more  so if lie had looked less steadily in  front of him, at Yvonne, that is to  say, who was pretty enough to turn-  a head more solid than that of a lieutenant of chasseurs. When they rose  from the table, poor d'Avricourt. felt  so discomfited that it seemed to him  Madame de la Meaugon must* have  perceived it, blind though she was.  But the dear woman was preoccupied  with another idea. Atter they had  entered the salon she said to her  granddaughters:  "Children, it is time for you to go  to church. M. d'Avricourt will permit you to leave him alone with me  for a quarter. of an hour."  Raoul bowed and:Mesdemoisellcs de  Pordic disappeared.  "My dear Vicomte," began the  dowager when they were alone, . "I  seldom have a chance to talk with a  man who understandsI'.business...-'". Permit me, then,?to be confidential with  you. My son-in-law,' I 'may as well  tell you,: understood business -about  as well as I would understand how to  command a drill. I will not .criticise  him since he is no longer here; .but  atter all, he was badly inspired on  the day when he put all our,fortunes  into that-.bank. * * * Do you know  what Iwish to sppak.-.pl?"  "I know, Madame."  . "Some people pretend that wc have  lost everything to the last sou. I do  not believe a 'word' of that myself,  for among the .officers of the company  there are names whicli, are the best  of securities. But, however, it may  be, for the last two years ' wc. have  not received a copper, and, between  you and me, I,.cannot avoid_ being  very much embarrassed."  "It is only "a passing difficulty,"  said Raoul. "Perhaps, you have not  claimed it?"  "Yes, assuredly. 'Only, no one pays  much attention to a poor blind woman away off at the end of the world.  My granddaughter Jeanne, who acts  as my secretary, has never received  any answers to her letters."  Alas!' she had received answers!  But instead of sending money they  demanded it.        "���������.������������������'������������������. ,  "For the moment," continued the  Marquise, "some thousands ot francs  ^in^partia^payment^^juJI'e^ilLlSSSSt  money would make me patient, and I  would leave my debtors tranquil provisionally. Perhaps, Monsieur, you  could point out to me a conscientious  man who would undertake to act. in  my name?"  "Take my notary, Madame?" said  d'Avricourt. "He is an able man who  has rendered mc a similar service;  for, like you, I am interested in these  tiresome affairs."  "And people have let you have  money?"  "A little, yes. It is only a question  of showing your teeth. Twill write  to M. Fossier to-morrow. Will Madame kindly give me some figures?"  When Mesdemoisellcs de Pordic  came back from 'church they found  Madame de la Meaugon twenty years  younger.  "My children," said she, "come and  embrace me., I am very happy this  evening. Without -owning it.to you,  I was somewhat uneasy about your  future. But our good old friend here  has reassured me. Perhaps your poor  father was not so badly inspired, after all, in the investment of his fortune."  Once more the young girls raised  their large, almost severe eyes, and  looked at Raoul. And again hc laid  his finger on his lips. During this7  pantomime the blind woman was  heard saying:  "Yvonne, let some ons go and tell  Madame du Foucet not to expect me  this evening, because I have somebody  at home. Thegonnec may take out; the  horses."  Dear noble woman, whose hearth,  visited by ruin, was now deprived of  other guests. You should have heard  her broken voice swell iovfullv to say:  "I have somebody at home."  If anyone had predicted to Raoul  the day before that he would pass  one of the most charming evenings of  his life opposite a blind woman of  seventy and two young girls in black  merino gowns, he would have shrugged his shoulders. Which proves that  one ought to swear to nothing, especially not to love some day a poor  littls provincial who deserves it, when  one has pretended up to then to love  many brilliant Parisienncs who could  hardly be said to deserve it.  The Marquise asked d'Avricourt to  tell them his history. He obeyed  without waiting to be urged, but he  suppressed some details. * * ��������� The  result was a, biography so edifying(  that one wondered why this young  man was not in thc seminary instead  of at the great manoeuvres. However, there was one among the three  women who would have been sorry,  enough if Raoul had worn the cassock instead . of that fine uniform  which became him so well. This one  was the fair Yvonne,, the melancholy,  ol whom everybody at G  said:  "There is one who will die a nun,"  When that old tell-tale, of a clock  essayed to strike eleven, Raoul would  have liked to. throw it out of the  window. The Marquise-almost immediately inquired the hour.  "Goodness!" said she, "we are sitting up late to-night. These   children  must be ready to drop with sleep."  But no one was inclined   to  go to  sleep. - ���������;.,'-,  .  D'Avricourt kissed'the hand of the  Marquise and that of Mademoiselle  Jeanne. Before the second sister he ,-,  bowed profoundly, without trying to  take her harid.U And yet it was  Yvonne who was all out*, blush..  The next morning at dawn, while  Raoul was making war on the, neighboring moors, Moreau .was galloping  towards the nearest railway station  to put in thc express box an envelops  bearing the following address:  "M. Fossier, Noimrc,  Rue de Lille,  Paris."  VI. -., '    c  , The next evening and that which  succeeded it resembled .that-which has  been described, a fact which gained  for the lieutenant, who: had become  invisible to his comrades,, a storm of  pleasantries which he forced himseli  to take neither   badly nor   too. well.  The fifth morning witnessed a very,  unusual event. The, courier brought a  registered letter addressed ' to the  Marquise de la Mcaugon! Mademoiselle Jeanne, sent for iri great haste,  drew from the envelope three notes  of a thousand francs each, and a letter from ���������ihe''notary Fossier.  While this letter was being read,  Madame de la Meaugon, all' radiant,  was caressing with meagre fingers the  three notes; they, at- least;' were not  impostures.  "You see, niy'.child!" said she to  Jeanne de Pordic. "Was. I wrong in  blaming you for despairing too;quick-  ly? But "how true it is that one must  have friends everywhere! .This notary,  seems to.me a very worthy man, and '  M. d'Avricourt an eminent adviser."  Jeanne fled, under pretext of going  to tell hex sister the good news. ,  "Yvonne, heretic is now trying to  make grandmother, believe that ��������� we  are rich! But. this time it'is too  much!"  ...  When she had related the:sending  of the pretended payment on account,  Yvonne said: ���������  "Grandmother liiust be told everything. We cannot, touch that man's  money even with a finger."  ��������� "I have been thinking about that  already," replied' Jeanne. "This is  what I am going to do. Twill draw  up a receipt which we will both sign.  We will repay this sum one day when  we are left' all alone. We; will go out  as governesses, if we must. But I  have not the courage,, to undeceive  grandmother^ For that-matter, .tor  see her die tranquilly I feel capable of  accepting alms."  "Then," said Yvonne slowly, "I  .wilLgo^awayjnyself .IL  "Why, sister?  not  "as  Have you  much courage as I?"  "No, I have no more courage.' I  would rather see all three of us die  than take his' money."  "I .comprehend," sighed Jeanne.  "You love him. Poor Yvonne!"  And the elder sisters left her hands  fall while her lips murmured:  "Ah! my God! make her blind also.  Let her not know what ������he is going  to make me suffer!"  During this .time D'Avricourt, while  pushing hisreconnoitring to right  and left, began to he unable to recognize himself. He had arrived at finding Brittany a charming country ��������� the  great manoeuvres the best conceived  of institutions, the women of I^aris  mere dolls without minds 'or ^hearts.  His imagination was not called on to  build castles itt Spain, since it found  one ready-made in' Lorraine and very,  fine, but it installed in Vthe dwelling  the most loving qt young couples.and  even the rosiest of babies, which, was  going rather fast. '    *  The young wife was blonde; a pretty shade, She was called Yvonne, ;a"  pretty name whicli Raoul kept repeating to himself to convince himself  of this more fully:  "Yes, my dear Yvonne. No, my little Yvonne. Yvonne.: have you told  the nurse to take your daughter out  for a walk? .Yvonne, do you love  me?" To this question Yvonne did  not respond, arid for cause, and Raoul  dared not answer for her. .''  "In fact," thought this chasseur,  suddenly becoming timid, "how do I  know that she will ever love me?  And then what docs it matter? To  marry her? Come'on!

Then came the defendant's turn..

two guineas?"' questioned the defendant.
"Ceitainly you did!"' replied the plaintiff. '     '

"Quite right; and I said that if you
would make it guineas I would 'take it

of triumph.

my dog?" demanded the defendant, with
a sudden eneigy that woke up the judge

with folded arms in tho middle of tlio

wounded be.ist charged full upon^him,
but the matador, splendid to the List,
knelt motionless as a statue, while thc
spectators held their breath in bonified

PROGRESS OF  ORTHOGRAPHY.  B'V^t'      ���������-���������  Throughout all the workings of the  universe nothing ia to manifest aa tbe  system���������th* incontrovertible regularity, precision and order which dominates all the laws of nature. Nothing  occurs by chance or accident. Everything haa a regular cause and a reason  for happening.  haws which exhibit this harmony of  concerted action most beautifully are  ���������Tbe indestructibility of matter���������Tbe  law of magnetic attraction and repulsion���������Tbe law of gravitation, and tbe  revolutionary system of the planets,  ���������which gives us our days, nights and  seasons.  Not only are these laws of the universe perfectly systematic and methodic in their working but although  the why of them has and always will  baffle human intelligence, the simplicity, of them is in all phases very  apparent.  It is beyond the power of man to  alter these rules and regulations of the  Creator, in any degree, and certainly  it is wise that it is eo. They are  arranged for his comfort, welfare and  happiness and set as an example for  bim in th* construction of his finite  laws. Wherever man ha* obeyed  these laws and worked in concert with  them be has naturally been abundant-  ly successful, when he has failed to  obey and work in harmony with  them he haa dismally failed.  It is said that "Order is God's first  law," and undoubtedly it ia true. If  the Creator required that, aa hi* flist  principle certainly it is also a necessity  to mankind, and our advanced civilisation of to-day is tbe result of our  infusing into all things, little or great,  ���������ystem and order.  Natural philosphy says a fluid of  gaeater density than another will  buoy up the fluid of les*er density. In  compliance witb thi* w* build a structure by which we force the displace-  of water by air and . thus pursue our  commerce upon the sea. In this we  are systematic in that we follow a  rigid principle. We do this because  we are forced. When we are not  compelled to follow certain laws and  thu* obaerve system and order we set  up any arbitrary rule sensible or  senseless, which happens to suggest  iteeli to the fanciful brain. Frequently we disregard ���������reason entirely and  consequently we are encumbered with  rules which ar* aa contradictory a*  light and darkne**.  Generally ia this true of our English  language (which, by tbe way, ia tbe  pearcet to a perfect lapgu������qg*-, yet  known) specifically  is it true ef one  branch of it���������orthography.  Writers and orator* bave labored to  bring  about  a sensible and universal  system of spelling, but tike tbe farmer  who  kept    asking   in   vain  for  hla  neighbors to come and assist bim to  cut hi* com and finally found that the  only way to accomplish anything wa*  to do it himself.     DO!     There ia tbe  secret, ceaae advocating such a thing  me good but do it, and show it* value.  English  people  are  laboring with  their  arbitrary pounds, shillings and  pane*.     We   are   a little more systematic with our dollar* and cent*, yet  our system might be made ten time*  ���������more simple and practical.    Evan the  universal  decimal system of notation  Knight with great advantage be chang"  red to the octimal system.    We are so  arbitrary, we J������y 12 inches in a foot;  SO ounces in a pound (avdp.); 100 cents  tn a dollar; 12 oh. in a pound (apotb.)  4 peck* in a bushel and 00 second* in a  minute, etc.  What a terrible mixture!  Where is the logic, reason or sequence  in the above?    Take the octimal system, and apply it thoroughly and see  ���������what  a simplification���������8 inches to a  foot, 8  ounce*  to  second*  to a  dollar, etc., etc. How easy it then  become*: Half a pound 4 ounces;  quarter of a foot, 2 inches; eighth of a J .^"'^^  dollar, 8 cents; sixteenth of a dollar, 4  cents; thirty-eecondth of a dollar, 2  cents; sixty-fourth of a dollar, 1 cent.  What simplicity, no fractions, only 8  tables to lsani instead of 12. Only 8  arbitrary figures' to learn���������infinite  numbers following in a natural sequence to the young mind after mastering the first 8���������instead of the 27  arbitrary figures even up to 100  which have at present to be learned.  To return from this little digression  and repeat: There is no way to accomplish aught but to start out fearlessly and boldly and with no regard  to criticism but in the light of reason  and judgment pave the way to a proper system and order.  Significant i* it that tbe medical  profession, which haa achieved more  for mankind than any other. product  of the human brain, is taking up the  sword and wadingintothe orthography  of the English language. A medical  journal entitled, "American Surgery  and Gynecology", ' published in St.  Louis, Mo., andraa a periodical representing the very deepest thought and  most intricate skill of the age, has started in and it is to be hoped that other  leading journals of the day will assist  in the. good work and a liberal pruning  and alteration will be continued till all  this redundancy and contradiction in  our present orthography will be done  away with entirely and some consistency and order evolved from the chaos.  The above mentioned journal has  wisely commenced gradually and  struck a blow.at the most flagrant  incongruities as a starter. It has discarded the idiotic "ough" from  "through" and spells it as it ought to  be "thru". Also it has cut off the  useless, "ugh" of "though" and loaves  it in a rational form "tho". Still  further has the worthy journal gone  and "talked, walked, worked and  inixod,"are now the' more sensible,  Vtalkt, walkt, workt and niixt."  Emory Lahphear, M. D., Ph. D.,  L.L.D., the editor of the above mentioned magazine has the following note  appearing each month under the name  date and terms of subscription of the  magazine. "The spelling found in this  magazine i* that voucht for by the  most prominent educators of tnis  country and is recommended for general adoption." And verily may it be  so. Now that the ice is once broken,  surely many will follow the valiant  lead.  One cannot look over our alphabet and not find a great deal that is  incongruous and should that one be a  primary teacher, still more is the inconsistency painfully apparant.  Where is the necessity of "c" ? It  appeal's with two sounds tbat of "K'  and that of "S". Thus it is a redundant letter and very confusing. We  say to the child that ca-t spells tbe'  word cat. The name of the letter "C"  is on* thing, the -sound - of it is quite  different. To be systematic the name  of any letter should be a suggestion as  to its use. With "S" and "K", "C" is  of not the slightest use.  Further the letter "Ot" is wrongly  Dame^.^Eathetshould.=it^be_i.called  "gay", using the hard sound invariably, then it would not be intermixed  with "j" as it at present is. "H" is  another misnomer, "hay" should be  the name of thi* letter. The letter  ���������q" cannot be   used   without  its co-  LOOKING FOR  TIMBER LIMITS  a pound, 8 or 04  minute, 84 cent* to a  partner "u" why not give it its proper  name "quay" and thus make it simpler.  Then "w," what a name! "Dubbleu"  or some such sound. This should be  "way" in sound, and then it would be  consistent with its use. And lastly  "y" called "wi." Were this called  "ye" as it should be if any connection  is to be found between its name and  use, then it would be consistent.  The letter "x" is amply significant  in its sound and yet we will persist in  prefixing "e" to it in nearly all cases���������  excuse, explain and extract. Why  not drop the senseless "e."  We smile at the illiterate Englishman changing his "h's." We are just  aa foolish when we say "horse" and  "hour," only we pride ourselves on  following our arbitrary law.  While all alterations in orthography  should be made with careful judgment  and reason yet, now that the campaign is opened the most glaring of  these offensive silent letters will surely  be quickly dispensed with. All honor  to the American Surgery and Gynecology Journal, and (hose that follow  Enterprising Prairie Men Here  After Investments.���������Say That  Their People Will Put Money  in Here.  D. O. Parker, of Morden, Manitoba,  and H. P. Simpson, ot Winnipeg, are  guests at the Hume. They are out  here prospecting for timber land.  They say they expect that there .will  be a very large accession to the population of Manitoba and the Territories  during the coming year and for several years to come. With the Increase  in the number ef people, will come an  augmented demand for. lumber for all  sorts of purposes. In order to supply  that demand, it will be necessary to  call on the forests of British Columbia. These'two gentlemen, who are  wealthy and enterprising, say that  they want to secure some timber  limits in this province before the big  rush to secure them begins. They  intend to do "this and will make  another trip to this section for this  purpose later in the year. Tliey say-  that the provinces to the east cannot  prosper without this province feeling  the good effects of that prosperity;  nor can British Columbia enjoy good  times without the prairie provinces  feeling the':-good effects of it. The  two sections ure so close together that  they must' necessarily trade a great  deal with one another.' What we  have they have not, and what they  bave we are not provided ��������� with.  Looking ahead a few years they can  see that there will be a big demand  for lumber in the section in which  they reside and are determined to  place themselves in.a position to supply some of the demand.  When interviewed they stated  that they were interested - in real  estate in Manitoba and thought, it was  the best country in the' world, the  same as the people here think that  British Columbia holds the palm for  all that is great. People who have  not been on the prairies know very  little about that section. Immigrants  are coming in from Easteen Canada,  Europe and the United States. Both  gentlemen stated that - they had  attended a meeting at St. Paul at  which was formed) the Canadian Inii-  gration Association. * The idea of the  association is to induce imigratioa  from the United States, lt has been  decided by .the association to spei d  $00,000 in advertising in the United  States. Tbe head office is in St. Paul.  The Dominion and Provincial Governments^ the city of Winnipeg, the  railway companies and business men  in Manitoba and the Northwest  Territories are subscribing to the fund.  The advertising department is under  the charge of Theodore Knappen, who  was formerly tha associate editor of  the leading St. Paul paper, but he  gave up this lucrative position to push  the advertising for the association.  Messrs. Parker and Simpson report  that last year over 100,000 people came  into Manitoba and the Territories, of  which 50,000 were from the United  States. They further state that they  expect the influx will be even larger  this year." So greAt is the demand for  land that the. price is advancing and  good arable land is now worth from  90 to $7 an acre. This is cheap, they  declare, for good wheat land.  The growth of Winnipeg has been  very rapid, >nd is now putting on  metropolitan airs. One sign of this is  that a 12-storsy steel building is to be  erected by the Union Bank on the  corner of Main street and William  avenuerwhich^wilUcostbalL.a=raillion.  of dollars. Last' year the building  permits in Winnipeg were for over  $0,000,000 and this year the contemplated improvements will cost $8,000,  000. The Canada Northern and the  C.P.R. will spend about $*,000,"000 this  year in improvements at Winnipeg.  The C.P.R. is putting in what it is  claimed ara the largest terminal yards  in th* world at VVinnipeg.'slisor new  roundhouses and shops .*nd other  buildings. The builders will have all  they can attend to this year in  Winnipeg. '  From what Messrs. Parker and  Simpson have seen of British Columbia they feel satisfied that it is now on  the up grade; that the mining, lumbering and business generally will be  more assuredly prosperous than it has  at any previous time. The people of  the prairies are already looking around  for places in which to put their surplus capital, and they predicted that  many of them will invest in our mining, lumbering and other industries,���������  Nelson Daily News.

We are in eec.'ipt of the Seventh  Annual Report of thu Department of  Agriculture of B. 0. Tire Hon. tt. G.  Tatlow has prepared a very extensive  and"Compre!ieii.sive report on the progress of this industry of our province.  Throughout are numerous excellent  cuts of farms, stock and fruit lands  which show British Oohimhia to Iiu  second to none in quality of agricultural productions.  In speaking of Kevelstoke the report  says : " In the vicinity of ltevelstoke  quite a largo quantity of land is under  cultivation. Bi'twven Kevelstoke and  Carnes Creek there are some splendid  flats for "cultivation. At Hevelstoke  and along the railway line one i*.  struck with tho luxuriant growth of  red clover and the thrifliness of the  vegetable and root crop."  While wo can claim for our district  importance in the immense mineral  and hun be i- wealth we can also show a  considerable fanning area. While  much of the land is at present heavily  timbered yet this timber���������mostly  cedar.-���������is very valuable and the cost of  clearing is practically covered by the  sale of hun ber. This timber land  makes the very finest fruit atid vegetable land to be had anywhere. Even  iu the Big Bend country���������essentially  a mining locality and as such mountainous���������there are, according to the  report, numerous benches of excellent  funning lands. As the mining industry  of this section progresses, which it is  bound to do, these binds will be culti  vated and the products thus obtained  will practically support; the entire district���������surely a gratifying consideration.  eral election is most probable before  1H05.  The American presidential campaign  will soon be commenced.  Premier Coombes of the Republic of  France is also on the eve of his resignation owing to vai ions socialistic  measures he has vainly attempted to  introduce.  With Citnndii, United States, Great  Britain and France all holding general elections there will be a fitting back  ground to the cannonading in the  Japo-Itussian war.  Thn panic in the New York cotton  exchange on Saturday owing to the  failure of D. J. Sully & Co. to meet  their margin calls on tlieir vast, holding.*! of cotton, was unprecedented in  its freiiKj- and eonfu-ion. D. .1. Sully  during the past 15 months has "bulled"  cotton  from  7c. to 17c. per pound.  The "bears" made a well planned  attack on Sully and unloaded immense  quantities of cotton and sent tha price  down $l.i per bale. Mr. Sully cornered  cotton last. May and cleared over a  million dollars. At that time he  forced the price up to 10c. per pound.  This year hc opened out on a much  larger scale and 'unfortunately could  not hold out. His losses will aggregate two or three millions."  NOTICE.  Xntrei* is litrreliy iirven tlrnt sixty dnys nfter iliite  1 inlenil Oi jii'p'ly tc tin* Chi..:!

Four   and a half per   cent   on  First Mortgage Loan.  There seems to be a well founded  rumor that there is a secret understanding between France and Britain,  whereby the former will in all probability refuse to give auy assistance to  Russia in the present strife. If such  . be the case Russia is evidently on her  own resources entirely and not backed  up by France. True, what little help  France could give would be of little  avail as her trade with:Britain is very  great and any complications with  England would.practically cut. off all  her supplies.  It is quite possible that for this reason'  Britain has a distinct understanding  with France that the latter shall refrain from enteringinto the present  warfare in any way.

"I like a man to 'bo a man," 19 on oil-  repeated dictum of the fair sex. This  ���������somatic saying seems, at first, absurdly simple. But the Delphic utterance,  with epigrammatic brevity and comprehensiveness, reveals, upon examination.  a tremendous truth. Woman likes a  man who is anything ratiher than a. duplicate of herself. He must be manly, not  effeminate; strong where she is weak;  bold whore she is timid; dauntless, outspoken and passionate where she is hesitating, fearful and reserved.  He must be a. man who can act well  hia part in the outside world, for.  strange to sny, woman rarely likes or  appreciates the domesticated man, who,  they say, is "like a woman about the  house," and Who can wash and dress the  children, or put them to bed. or cook the.  dinner with equal facility. Most women  ���������eem actually to prefer tliat a man  ehould be positively-helpless when within  the walls of his own home, but probably  this ia iljecause they wish him to realize  bis utter dependence upon them, and his j  incapacity to grapple with domestic  "problems" of any and every kind during  their absence.  It is the modern human fashion to  consider that women are not ruled by  passion. Xcver was tliere a greater fallacy. If woman is'ruled by anything beyond her own whims and fancies for the  moment, it is by passion���������but she calls  it love! Women, au fond, are all more  or less passionate, and the men who appeal to her primitive passions and instincts are the men she really likes best.

In 6pite of Wilkin's well-known honst  that though it took him half an hour just  "to talk away his face" (on account of  his extreme "]ila'niles3) ^e would heat  any man that, entered the lists against  him for a lady's favor, it is undeniable  that most women prefer men who are  good-looking, nnd. . in addition, well  groomed and smart, in appearance.

This i������, of -a certainty, a challenge full  of assurance and conceit, but Wilkie  knew his world���������or, at any Tate, the  feminine portion of it���������when he suggested the powerful influence of "attentions." No true woman ever disregards  or disapproves of "attentions," even  jrhgn=be8tow,ed_~hv_men_to_whgin jhe is  indifferent, but when they come fnJm  the man of her heart and choice they are  treasured and prized enormously.  A woman is both, fond and faithful,  tnd tie more a man respects her sensitiveness nnd her not always or altogether unworthy weaknesses over this question of sentiment the better will she like  him.

Man :���������"I am come that  they might have life, and that thty  ���������night have it more abundantly."  Jhat ������������������.religion is a message of life,  alms 11 its prime feature, its supreme  purpose. It fulfils this mission in two  ways':���������  First, by awakening this spiritual life.  Bhe life of man is threefold���������animal,  intellectual, spiritual. The spiritual  it that in which exists the divine image  It is far the noblest form of life, ft  is the life of fellowship with God, of  discernment of the spiritual and eternal, of heavenly aims and aspirations.  Ofet this uppermost round of life is  just that into wMich men and women  (io not enter until awakened and lifted  tap to it by religion. And so marvellous is. the change oi experience it  bangs that it can only be denoted by "a  ���������ew birth," a being "born again," an  opening of the soul's vision to a higher  realm of being.  And the second way in which religion is a message of life is by its revelations cf immortality. Tiiis' "new  ���������tteature" is superior-to death. The  ������tal 'principle, inbreathed by thle Spirit  of God, can never die. Through the  ���������hock of death it shall be preserved,  and when.time shall be no more, and  when at the archangel's trump creation ."sMall be.uncreated, undimmed will  it shine on in the firmament of eternity.'  - We see here, then, the great mistake  ef ��������� many conceptions about religion:  One of the most current of these is  that it fetters, narrows, circumscribes  life. People shrink back from religion,  fearing that it will largelvi make them  part with-lifc,-take its vim, its range,  Its felicity from it; whlcreas precisely  the reverse is true. Christ proclaimed  ao -fettered, gloomy, ascetic Gospel.  But His message was one of gr.od  tidings, of freedom, of uplifting. He  not only called to life, but to larger  life, to higher life, to more exalted  raptures. Religion denies no rightful  pleasure, it restricts no natural faculty.  It does net preach abstinence, but  temperance. It only adds to the animal  ���������nd intellectual sense of being the spiritual, the crown and flower of life.  A notable illustration of this Morley  gives in His "Life of Gladstone." "His  religious faith inspired him to high  thought and noble action and gave new  strength and beauty to his fine nature.  (There, was in the greatest English  ���������dentists of the last century something  lacking, that left fhlcm with a touch of  meanness, narrowness and hardness  ���������nd kept them to a lower range of manhood than that of Gladstone."  Religion, then, is a message of life,  ���������nd cf larger life. Those who hold  back from it are only debarring tticm-  -selvcs-from the-noblesi-actions,- -llic-  finest experiences and the rarest joys.  At tlie death of such a person, no matter what n--.y have been his wealth and  mental culture, we may truly say :���������  "He has never lived ; lie has, never beheld the true secret of life." Religion  but expands the nature of man, broadens the.diameter and enlarges thc horizon of life. It quickens tUe spiritual,  it gives true freedom, it fosters love  ���������nd good-will, it intensifies joy, and  over the mound of death it rears the  rainbow of an immortal hope.  We only then sound the vast range.  of.life and taste the rarest essence of  being when wc develop and give scope  to our religious nature. This is that  message of a larger, fuller, more blissful life which religion brings, and  which Jesus voices in' tliese pregnant  words :���������"I am come that they might  have life, and that they might? have it  more abundantly. "  The Farm Horse.  (Synopsis  of a  Talk on  the  Farm  Horse at a Farmers' Institute at Bain-  bridge,  N.Y.,  by  Frank  D.* Ward  of  Batavia, N.Y.)  I am glad to speak upon this sub-  pect, for it is a question in which all  are interested.  Some people are preaching that we  are coming to a horseless age. Now,  our children and grandchildren will  never see that time. It was prophesied  that the trolley car and the bicycle  would supersede thc horse, but that  time will never come. Neither will the  automobile nor any other means of locomotion. No, the time will never  come when tlie class of horses demanded in the best markets will not  be grown with profit. Europeans are  looking to this country for horses, for  we can grow better horses thany anywhere else, and, while some other  parts of our country can grow them  equally well as we can here in New  York, that territory is limited, and nowhere can tliey grow them better than  here.  One of the greatest troubles with  our breeders is, we have been breeding from unsound or vicious horses.  The saying of Paul, "Whatsoever a  man soweth that shall he reap," is as  true to-day as when uttered, and nowhere is it more true than in' the  breeding of horses.  The different types of horses may  be divded into four classes���������the heavy  draft horse, the heavy coach or carriage horse, the trotting horse and the  general-purpose horse. And the successful breeder must hew close to tlie  line and confine himself to one breed.  First as to the trotting horse. * I'  wouldn't let a boy and a trotting-bred  colt grow upon the same farm, for I  would expect it to prove the ruin of  1 the boy, and between the boy and. the  horse I will take the boy every time.  So we will cut the trotting horse right  out of-this question. The general-purpose horse, too, will not be found profitable, for the class commonly known  as general-purpose horses are too light  for profit. ;  So we are now limited to the heavy  draft horse, and thc heavy coach and  carriage horse. What shall we breed  then ?, I think we will find every merit  in .heavy draft horses in three breeds���������  the Clydesdale, thc Percheron and the  Shire, and for coach horses I would  also confine myself to three breeds���������  the French ��������� coach, thc Hackney, the  German or Oldenberg coach. As to  the weight of the former, I- would  have one weighing about 1,400 lbs., and  in coach horses a weight of not less  than 1,200 lbs. Some one will say these  heavy horses- cannot stand it to work  on ploughed ground or on thc farm,  but there was never a greater mistake.  Now, how shall we breed them, and  what time of year ? I believe with a  spring colt it is much better to keep  the colt in a good box stall than to  allow it to follow the mare when working her. But I believe, though, that  fall-bred colts are greatly preferable.  The colt should be fed liberally and  intelligently, and begin by feeding some  grain when quite young. Feed at first  with regular but moderate feedings of  ground oats, some oil meal and a little bran.  . The disposition in the dam is a question-of-great-importance.���������A���������vicious.-  uncertain disposition in the dam will  be transmitted to the offspring. Always halter break the colt while run  hirig with the da rii, but never use a  rope halter. Always use a good' live-  ring leather halter. Handle always with  the greatest care/' never to frighten the  colt with the harness. Never use a.  bitting rig of any kind on the colt.  Never check up the colt until he has  been taught to drive. Always hitch  the colt up with a good, young, snappy,  vigorous horse, but nevtr hitch it with  an old horse that will teach it to walk  slowly.- A colt will learn more mean  tricks from .some slow, old .plug in a  few days than it will forget in years.  Having bred; a horse of this class,  then how "shall we sell him ? Why, we  .will not have to consider this question'  "at all, for they will sell themselves. The  Household  Hints.  Borax and water is a good wash for  the hair.  A burn will soon be relieved by application of flour and water.  Sprinkle carpets with salt before  sweeping; this will freshen them.  When the oven is too hot piit a basin  of cold water in it.  A newspaper will polish a stove better than a brush.  Brush pie crusts lightly over with  fresh cream before putting them in the  oven; this will give them a fine brown  tint.  Soak the soles of boots which creak  in  linseed  oil.  The nails of the hand can be improved by keeping them fifteen minutes in  ���������hot water and then paring them. Polish  them with chamois leather dripped in  oil, and finely crushed pumice-stone.  Salt is a very useful, though humble,  friend of the housekeeper, if she would  but realize i'*e fact. Damp salt will  rub off- the e.scolorations left in cups  by the sediment of tea and coffee. Salt  will set the dyes of black and colored  articles, if a little be added to the water  in which these are washed. Salt, mixed  with lemon juice, removes the stains  of oak, tar or paint from the hands.  Salt and water, appl'ed to basket and  straw work, anu rubbed in with a soft  nail brush, is a most effective cleansing  agent. Brass ornaments may be kept  bright by rubbing them occasionally  with salt and vinegar. Salt thrown  upon the grate will soon put out a fire  in the chimney. Salt, when added in  proportion to whitewash, induces the  latter to adhere more firmly to any surface to which it may be applied.  At this time of year damp beds become greater elements of danger than  they were in warm summer weather,  though, of course, at any time a damp  bed is to be avoided. In no household  should thc precaution 01 airing the bed  linen before t?k:ng it into use be omitted, and it will make the bed* more  healthy and more comfortable if an in-  dia rubber hot-water bottle, or a stone  bottle cased in flannel, be put in just  before bedtime. As a final test oi  dampness in a bed. put a small looking  glass between the sheets. Leave it  there for about five minutes, and if it  is then taken out with a cloud or mist  upon its surface it i.s a sure sign that  the linen is not thoroughly dry.

The condition .of the labor market In  XrtMidoh, according to The Star of that  city, is described by a Salvation Array  officer who recently applied In person to  a few of the advertisements Irr the ually  papers. An advertisement for n carpenter  asked that applications slroe'd be made at  t a.m. At half-past 8 35 workmen were  ln waiting, -and by 9 tho number had" increased to 110. The Electric Tram Company wanted men for road work, and  when one of the applicants arrived at 3.34  there were over 300 men waiting. Thirty,  who had shovels of their own, were enraged.

And, also,, these good'horses will do  bcttii* work upon, the farm. They will,  as I have already said, be found profitable for the market, and, best of all,  they will make the farm work more  pleasant, ami thus, as you will find,  will have an influence in keeping the  boys contented on the farm.  Now for the dairy farmer in New  York. Wisconsin, or any other section  equally well adapted to the growth of  this class of strong, vigorous and hardy  horses I have indicated," who is looking for some profitable adjunct upon  his dairy farm to add to theresourccs,  I believe horse breeding, if intelligently directed, offers better advantages to-day than almost anv other line  of work.���������E.

Thin  tliere was u lull in tire bidding, but the  crier persisted, and tins bargain was Anally knocked down to H. YV. Shea, a  commission merchant, at two dollars and  thirty-nine cents. The negro eyed tho  commission man closely and announced  that lie believed he would like to live  Willi him. Hc said he hud had no home  for years and he was tired of living from  hand to mouth. Mr. Sheu told thc women  that he would give ills new purchase  some light work around liis commission  house, and, if he proved to be trustworthy, the Job would be permanent. He  agreed to give the negro a suit of clothes  and plerity to eat. The old man thanked  the women for having found a home for  liim and went away with his new master,  seemingly  quite  satisfied."    -  Throughout Indiana the city of Indianapolis Is known as the "niggers' heaven," because of the unusually liberal  treatment of colored folk, compared to  their lot ln surrounding States, and ln  other sections of the State' itself.  Wants to be a Lawyer.  The appeal of Miss Cave of London,  England, against the decision of the  Benchers of Gray's Inn refusing to admit ber to the society, in other words,  rejecting her applicalion to practise law  has aroused as much attention in Britain  as could be expected in a country which  has scant time to discuss anything but  "liscalitls" and "brain fag." A special  court of the House of Lords heard Miss  Cave's appeal, and the public were excluded from the hearing. After listening  to what she had to say (the Judges seemed to be amused thereat) tire Lord Chancellor Immediately said there was no"  precedent for an admission such as Miss  Cave had sought, and he saw no reason  to create one. If only a certain oilier Lord  had discovered a like diniculty In regard  to Uncle Sam's application to be appointed permanent guardian of part of Miss  Canada's property we would still be  throwing bouquets at liim.

Roosevelt and    oik's Sayings.  President Rooset tit's last message to  Coasreea contained a' long and violent  denunciation of bribery (not ln the r*  motest conneoted with tho Panama gams  Which, of course, was played by Mr.  Roosevelt and his advisors with the most  conscientious' regard for the rights of  their weaker "sister republics"). That  denunciation hud a familiar ring, and  now, not tlirough any desire on tire part  of Mr. Roosevelt, who with characteristic modesty maintains silence on the subject, the note of familiarity has been explained by several newspapers. The Nerf  York World thus delicately expounds the  situation:���������"The mystery attending the  deadly parallelism between the passage  on bribery in the President's message  and certain public utterances of Prose-  c.u.Kln?

A correspondent writes :���������The recent  death of Sir John Blundell Manle. Bart,  tiie millionaire breeder of horses, who  made his money by selling house furniture in a shop In Tottenham Court road,  a by no means aristocratic quarter of  London, recalls the story of the ingenious  and enterprising genealogist who was retained to trace his pedigree from the records of the Heralds' College. The nams  Blundell was a good starting point, and  the learned genealogist was able to deduce a pedigree which greatly pleased the  newly-created Baronet, and which (to his  satisfaction, at all events), proved his  descent from Blondel, the favorite bard  of the Court of Richard Plantagcnet. who  discovered the dungeon in which his loyal  master was held ln durance vile, the veracity of tho pedigree being confirmed by  the final surname Maple. For does not  history tell us that on hearing the harp  of his faithful bard outside the walls of  his dungeon, Richard the Lion-heart was  heard to explain "Blondel M'Apnelle"  "Blondel calls me"; after which Sir John's  branch of the family adopted the surname of "M'Appelie," which in a later  age degenerated into "Maple"���������at least so  the story goes, and genealogy ls never at  fault.

A^Hard "Road to Travel."  Some details ns  to the  rond by which  the  Thibet  expedition   Is  advancing may  he   of   interest   af the  present moment.  Kamba  Jong,  where thc mission  Is now  encamped, Is Si miles,  as the crow flies,  due  north  of the  Indian   hill-station   of  Darjoellng, hut,  of course, the mountain  road by Tongu Is much longer.   The present height of the camu above sea-level ls  13,SOO feet,  the surrounding country  consisting of high mountains. Intersected by  deep   valleys.     From   Kamba   Jong   two  roads   lead   to    Lhassu,    one  due   rrorth  through   Shlgalse,   on   the   brink   of   tho  Tsang-Po,   the great  river  which  eventually becomes lire Brahnrnputra. The.distance .by-, this   route,   says. The   London  Dally Chronicle, Is ninety miles to Slrlg-  atse, and 130 miles further* to Lhassa. Tho  southern   route   by Gy.intse.   which  it   Is  proposed to follow, Is thirty miles longer,  Gyantse being 1C6 miles from Llrnssa.. But  both  routes  cross  the  watershed  of the  Eastern Himalayas,   which is.a very-arduous   undertaking.    Tlie stutement that  Colonel Macdonald has ordered Canadian  fur coats  for  his   troops  shows   that  he  thoroughly  appreciates  tho.rigor of   the  climate which he has lo encounter. At tho  beginning   of   November    20    degrees   of  frost   were   registered   at   Kamba   Jong,  and the winter was then only just setting  in.   In the expedition of 1SS8 the Thibetan  field force found snow lying deep on the  slopes   in  the month  of March,  and  tho  small garrison of Gnatong had afterwaras  very trying experiences In the dreary winter weather.    Tho tableland of Thibet Is  covered   with  snow   for   several  months,  and life under canva., is almost impossible  during that period.   The great danger is  from pneumonia,  which, Is  more'formidable   than  the muskets  of the  Thibetan  army,   these   being   only   muzzle-loaders,  and the army Itself an untrained and un-  warllke  rabble.    But the native  soldiers  of  the   Indian  plains,   of   which  Colonel  Macdonald's force will mainly consist, are  little accustomed lo extreme cold,  earnestness���������a deadly earnestness. fn  this respect the men are quite put to  shame. ... In organization, too, the  men must confess that they have been  equalled, If not 'outclassed.' - Nothing  could have exceeded the harmony nnd  mutual good feeling with which the several comihittees worked. . . . Further, the proceedings were conducted In an  extremely business-like manner. Those  women who do take an interest ln public  questions are evidently zealous refn'TYiers.  and in a much greater hurry to rlshi tho  wrong than man. When they get tiro  vote, which they ought to have and  doubtless would havo but for the apathy  of their own sex, Liberal statesmen may  Indefinitely retire from business, but social, as distinct from political, reform  will bo expedited rather than Impeded."  Which means, adds The Anglo-Russian,  that at tho hands of women, Hbertv. retrenchment nnd reform, instead of being  only party watchwords, will, become practical national assets.  There was no reply.
