Attwood,  Esq.,   the   consulting  engineer of the' Great  Western   unci  Silver Cup Mines Co., wus in   the city  Saturday, having returned from.a trip  to*the company's properties at Ferguson, when "in  tin interview  with  our  reporter, stated thnt ho had thoroughly investigated--conditions prevailing  and acknowledged that although the  damages caused   hy   the   snow  slide  were serious indeed, ho wns pleased to  state thnt they were not quite  so  bad  as iirst reported and'unless unforeseen  circumstances intervene tho mill- will  be in full operation ' on   Tuesday   the  24th.,   Every, arrangement  has' been  made to start the -works on ores ���������, from  The Silver Cup, also a trial test of the  Nettie L. tramway has  been effected  satisfactorily, as well   as. one   of   the  long tramway of   the   Cup.     At   the  upper terminal of  the   Silver  Cup  a  large gang of men has been employed  clearing off the snow and debris.   The  bull wheel or  clip 'wheel was found  to be intact, but the frame work was  badly smashed, however, the work of  cutting and framing timbers to replace  the damaged ones is being prosecuted  and-it is now   only   a  question nf  a  short time when that tramway will be  in good working order and as soon ns  it is, food supplies will be taken up, an  increased    force ** employed   clearing  away snow, ice and  .debris, from   the  compressor   building   and   tne  small  feeder tramway.  "- The large rotary roasting furnaces,  pans and settlers; are in first class  shape, all having been thoroughly  tes'ted.

We congratulate the citizens of  Ferguson on the bright prospects" of  their camp and kuow that we. re-echo  their sentiments in -expressing- gratification upon the successful issue of  the company's efforts in repairing  damages to their., property, which, it  is to be hoped that once under way no  further difficulties be encountered, but  that the work may continue to progress with profit to themselves and to  the community.  team which work well together und  will hold their own with any team iu  the inlt't-iiii*.

A pleasing feature of the match wns  the easy task of Referee Willing who  had 110 occasion to rule players off for  rough ladies. It was a gentlemanly  game throughout and in this respect  differed greatly from former matches  between these two teams, The Kamloops boys recognized that they were  outclassed, took . .their defeat with  good grace and returned home with  the determination to do hotter next'  time.  New AVcstminster defeated Nelson  nt Kaslo 011 the 21th hy -I goals to 3.  THE COLLEEN  BAWN SUCCESS  Baseball Match  One of the features of the Empire  .Day sporls, was a baseball match between nine of the Columbia Athletic  Club and Fire Brigade No. 2. and although tho scores,.would indicate it  was by no means a faultless game yet  there is no doubt that Revelstoke  possesses excellent material for the  formation of a good club.  The score was 21 in favor of the Columbia Athletic" Club to 5 for Fire  Brigade No. 2. "The players were:  Columbia Athletic Club���������lt. Jones,  H. Ferguson, AV. Henry, R. Cast, C.  Palmer, C.

There was a large turn out at the  athletic grounds Tuesday' afternoon  to witness the first game of the season  between Kamloops and Revelstoke,  whicli had been looked forward to  with great interest, but proved to be  a big disappointment. It was easy all  the way for tlie-home-team~wlio"put"  it all over their opponencs. AVhile  the Kamloops defence , played a fairly  strong game they could do nothing  with the clever combination work of  Revelstoke's home who put the ball  into 'the net three times in the first  quarter, twice 'in'the .second quarter  and twice again in the last quarter,  making seven"gonls iu all to nothing.  For Kamloops Smith was the most  conspicuous player; 'but- he'.received  little or no assistance. For Revelstoke  Latham, Burlier, Hyatt and Edwards  of Inst year's team appeared in their  old places and did good work, while  among the new players Saunders,  Knight and Jamieson were most prominent.   Following was the line-up:  BEVELSTOKE  Thc.Criterion or. No. 2 lead on the  Rossland, one, of the. properties contained in. the Oyster group, owned hy  the-Great * Northern Mines, Limited,  was ' encountered last week in the  main tunnel in which operations have  been conducted'during the past two  months. The lead, which was struck  "at li distance* ri".*>j500 feet from . the  mouth of the tunnel," is about 3 feet' in  width and to all appearances is very'  rich as free gold can be seen in places.,  According to Mr. J. A.*'Darragh, the  tunnel on the Silver Dollar is. in '13  feet, and it is expected thai the lead  will be tapped in another 10 feet.���������  Cam borne Miner.  A. satisfactory settlement will he  arrived ,-it between .the, Calumet and  B. C. Co", and the Imperial Mining Co.  in reference to the Eva mine. The  Herald will have the particulars as  Eoon as they are given out by the  parties interested.  The famous Horseshoe property,  owned by Messrs. Craig & Hill man  and G. S.' McCarter.has .been sold to  AA'. B. Pool. The property lies on the  slope of tlie mountain .about three  miles from the C. P. R. at Trout Lake  nnd has about 150 feet of work done  on it. The ore is gray copper running  from 150 to 300-..ounces'? in silver and  from 10 to 20 per cent. lead.  (J. lit & (fl,  Department Store.

It is a matter of regret that the  teams were' hot more evenly matched  as a fair test of the strength of the  home team could not be ascertained in  a one-sided contest as Tuesday's match  proved. From all appearances however Revelstoke  possesses a lacrosse  Ball at Arrowhead.  - The following report of-the dance  given by Mr.  and "Mrs. J. AV. Light-  burne'on the occasion of thei opening  of the Union Hotel at Arrowhead,  arrived  too   late   for publication last  week:���������A-most enjoyable-evening-was  spent by those who attended the ripening of the Union Hotel. . Everything  went off in grand style, dancing being  continued till early morning to the  music of the Arrowhead orchestra.  Mr. Bert Elliott officiated as Master pf  Ceremonies. A splendid lunch wjus  served at midnight by Mrs. Lightburne  to' which full justice was done.  Among those* present were the Misses  Kennedy, Cedarholm, Duncan, Bnrlee  (Arrowhead) Miss Joliffie, Miss McCarthy (Ilevelstoko), Mrs. Capt.

After the service the order sang  God save the King, and on retiring to  the hall, a heart y vote of thanks was  passed to Rev. Mr. ��������� Procunier for his  able address.  Miner's License.  All miner's licenses expire at midnight on May: 31st. See that your  license is renewed promptly.  The   Colleen   Bawn   at   the   Opera  House on Tuesday evening drew forth  one   of   the  largest  audiences    ever  seated in that well known play house,  and thc peiforuianceby local talent of  this well known Irish play wim exceptionally good, much. better  than was  really  expected and compared   most  favorably   with   the   standard   maintained by professional companies playing here.   The scenic.effects, the work  of Mr.  T.  H.   Dunne,  assisted by his  son Percy,  were,  (as the Hkr.vld intimated, iu its last issue,) simply perfect.     The   opening scene���������-Lake Kil.  larney  at  midnight, with   the  moon  shining over the placid waters of this  picturesque and favored spot for tourists and,travellers -who go to view the  grand scenery of   the  Emerald Isle,  while- away   across the lake at Much-  ross  Head    a    star-like   light   shone  from a window in the home of  Eily  O'Connor���������ths Colleen Bawn���������-a signal  Lo her   lover  Hardress Cregnn, all of  which was most realistic in effect. The  Gup of Dunloe, before sunrise, and the  interior of Eily's cottage, tlio remaining   scenes of  the first  act were also  much admired.    The principal scenes  in the second act were The Old AVe r  Bridge and The Cave on Devil's Island.  .In the former the effective coloring  displayed to advantage the genius of  the artist.   ' In the latter the .grandest  and most realistic scenery ever witnessed in the west was here produced.  The  wild   and rocky cave proving an  ideal spot for the attempted murderjof  Eily   O'Connor.     On   this scene  Mr.  Dunn e took particular pride.and the  success attained was evidenced by the  splendid reception  it received by the  large audience who applauded   most  heartily.     In the last act the exterior  of Castle Chute with its lights showing   from   the   windows was indeed a  grand  spectacle. "*   The hut of  Myles  Nae Coppaleen. on the shore of Lake  Killarney was also admirably depicted.  The   ball  room   in   Castle Chute, thc  final scene of the play'was certainly a  clever piece of work".' The .staircase  with its-handsome oak - balusters,'-the  corridor    with    the    moon' shining  through   the   windows n.nd the 'handsome costumes'of the ladies and gentlemen   guests  at   the  castle lending  beauty and naturalness to the scene.  Of the cast there is nothing but  praise from ��������� the large audience which  attended, and to eveiy member a great  deal of credit.isdue. "Wheh.it is known  that not even one full dress rehearsal  took place the > disadvantages under  which they labored will be more clearly realized. However, there was not  a hitch from the rise of the curtain,  every part running smoothly throughout. Mrs. H. A. Brown, who played  the title role, was as perfect in the  delineation of tbe character���������o, generous, warm hearted untutored Irish  girl���������and was the recipient of many  congratulations on her rendition of  this, the most important part. Her  singing of "The Cruiskeen Lawn" was  particularly admired and drew forth  rounds of applause.  Mrs. T. H. Dunne both^ looked and  acted "the part of Mrs. Cregan, the  aristocratic .Irish"'-matron-. ' It was a  character that called for careful study  nnd ability that did not suffer in Mrs".  Dunne's rendition of the part. Mrs.  G. J. Wilks as Sheelah Mai.ir;?Dai.ny  Mann's mother, was a true rendition  of a good old Irish woman. Mrs. W.  J. George, as Anne Chute the heiress,  only had a week in which to prepare  the-par_7did splendidlyriind her clever  portrayal of this important character  in the play was the "cause of a good  deal of favorable comment.  Of the gentlemen who took part  there was no cause for complaint.  Air. T. H. Dunne, who by thc way has  had a good.deal ��������� of ? experience on thc  stage in amateur theatricals, took the  part of Danny Mann with considerable success. Mr. AV. A. Chambers  had a difficult role to play as Hardress  Cregan, nnd he acquitted himself  creditably, as (lid also Mr. F. S. Burke  in the character of Kyrlc Daly, a naval  officer, Criigaii's bosom friend. Mr.  It. Sawyer, as Myles Nae Coppaleen,  a real Irish hoy, as usual was good  hnd his portrayal of the character true  to life. -Mr. W: M. Lawrence,, as  Father O'Brien,- made' a typical Irish  priest, his rotundity of form and jovial  countenance fitting the bill perfectly.  Mr. E. B. Stringer, as a crafty Irish  lawyer, sustained his part well .and  received the commendation of the  audience.. ? '���������''������������������"���������'  . ��������������������������� The. costumes of the, different character s were very handsome and added  greatly to the success of the performance, more particularly in the last act,,  in the ball room of Castle Chute, where  the entire company appeared, the  gowns of the ladies and the costumes  of the gentlemen presenting a spectacle which for beauty, of effect cannot  be excelled on any stage on the continent. The entire cast worked hard  and faithfully *td put on a play that  would be appreciated bv the citizens  of the town and that they did so was  evidenced by the bumper house and  unstinted praise bestowed upon them.  Mr, Dunne who had charge of the  whole performance spared neither  time nor money to make the affair a  success and to him is due a large proportion of the credit.  By special request the performance  was repeated on AVednesday night,  with even greater success than the  previous evening and the audience  though not as large was quite as  enthusiastic.

LAST WEEK'S  Fire    on     First    Street   Last  '   Thursday     Night - Destroys  ���������  $n,ooo Worth of   Property���������  Child Burnt to Death.  A fire broke out' tit  10:30 Thursday  night in the house occupied by Peter  Gavin and his family on  First street,  between   Mackenzie' and   Orton-^ave-  nues,   which, -he'fore   it" .was extinguished, spread over a larger' area than  any fire in the" history of the" city.  The first to arrive on  the scene was  Thomas Booth, who, at great personal  risk, succeeded in saving three of the  Gavin children,  but the flames were  so-fierce that he could not reach five-  year-old Gladys and the poor child was  burnt to detith.    Meanwhile an alarm  had been turned in and the membci-s  of the three fire departments,   No. 1,  No. 2 and the C.P.R. fire brigade were  quickly 0.1   the   spot  and, aided   by  citizens,   every effort to quench 'the  blaze was made, but so great was the  headway obtained that the upper pait  of the adjoining house occupied by E.  H.   Lewis    wtis    a     seething     mass.  Willing liands were   busy removing  the furniture of the' lower  floor,  the  children who had been left in  charge  of   Miss  Ashley during the parents'  absence were conveyed to a place of  safety.   The flames continued to eat  their   way,  compelling the abandonment of the lower part of the house to  its  greedy maw.   A   bucket brigade  was working heroically on   the  building of-Mike-Pat and-was assisted-by-n  detachment of the fire hoys, but were  reluctantly compelled   to desist when  the heat became so  intense as to  be  beyond human endurance.   The warehouse of   Lewis   Bros,   containing  a  number of pianos just received,   was  the next to be endangered.   After the  instruments had been taken out ropes  encircled the building.and  then  commenced a strenuous tug of war whicli  ended with the razing of the building.  Several  of   the    laddies   who    were  stationed on the roof of Mrs.  Blake's  building, the lower part of which was  occupied by Yodo Fujii, stood bravely  attheii*posts, their facesand hands bearing  silent  witness to the   scorching  heat they were subject to.     We   may  say that it  was largely due to _ their  plucky stand that large as the damages were they were not far greater.  Mike    Pat's; building   consisting   of  store and boarding house, were totally   demolished,   some   of  the  goods  consisting of groceries, rice, etc., were'  removed.   Wet blankets were largely  instrumental  in   saving  considerable  property, and the scorched and blistered appearance.. of  Bennett's  store.  Cowie's  restaurant  and   Burn's    ice  house bear mute testimony to their  efficacy.    At 1.30 a. ni., the fire being  under  control,  many who had been  busy removing their goods and chattels with signs of relief moved thetn  back again.  As an evidence of sympathy for the  unfortunate Gavin family, a subscription of over S200 was raised and several of the merchants in addition to  monetary donations, made gifts of  goods and a number of ladies furn  and personal effects. $400, no insurance. -Mrs.- Blake, house, $1,500, insurance. *il,000.

The Daily Mail's correspondent at  Shiinbnpseki, Japan, cabling under  date of May 21, asserts that active preparations are in progress for the  reduction of Port Arthur and that  these preparations have been instructed to be made by a carefully  chosen forceof veterans forming a part,  of the thiid army. Very heavy artillery is being landed on the Liaotung  peninsula.  The Daily Telegraph's Newchwang  correspondent declares that Gen. Kur.  opatkin is determined   to   check  the  Japanese at-Lirtoyang.-whereprobably   the greatest battle of the war will be  fought. He adds that Lieut. Gen.  Stoessel and Maj. Gen. Fock, continue  to make well directed but desperate  sorties against thc ������d vance of the Japanese, who are fighting with a stubborn determination almost unequaled  in history.  Included in a score of rumors is one  sent by the. Shanghai correspondent of  the Morning Post to the effect that the  Russians have lieen defeated near  Yinkau, abandoning fifty guns, and  that Gen. Kuropatkin has been advised  by Viceroy Alexieff to retreat to  Harbin.  Additional details  of   the  fight  at  Wangchiatun,   near  Takushan,  May  20, indicate that a  squadron   of  Qps-.  sacks was almost annihilated   by  the .  Japanese infantry, which  surrounded  and completely routed the" enemy. All  the    Russian    officers    were    killed,  wounded or captured. , Natives report  that some of the Cossacks escaped on  foot,   abandoning    their   equipment.  Many killed and wounded were found  on the battlefield.  Provincial Secretaryship.  The Hon, F.J. Fulton, the Presiden  of the Council, was sworn in Wednesday last as Provincial Secretary,  the Hon.

lt you are a light sleeper, and most
people nt some time.or other have
trouble ,.-getting to sleep, you may
try the "pillow cure. This calls for
.soft pillows, of two sizes. One is to
rest under thc head and tho other
is to make tho neck co.nfortnblc.
The rule is to make your neck comfortable when you go to sleep.
"Make your head as easy os you
can. Thon make your neck comfortable," was the advice given by a
London physician to an insomnia P<t-
"li you go to sleep with the neck
unsupported you will not sleep long"
said a physician to a banker. "Aftor your head is comfortable, begin
and prop up your ueek. I'lnce a
small pillow under it, twi t and
turn t.h<* corners of your pillow, and
keen on until your head is perfectly
siipportod. Then fall asleep and you
will   I'eeji   until   niorning."
A /rrcat many women and men,
too, s-Ieep better sitting up in a
clu.ir than in a bed. ������The reason,"
said a physician,-"is that the ueclc is
supported bettor when thoy are

Aftor a certain number of changes
which tho bacillus undergoes ori this

on the contrary, another toxic substance, which kills small animals, and
to which tuberculous animals aro no

Except during the hours before Fleet street  takes down its shutters, or on fi  Sunday, you will Uriel it diflleult to  "take a walk" thero if your promenade is of the character of a stroll;  as It evidently was in Johnson's  day. yrom morning until night you  are .iostlod by an everlasting crowd  pushing ite way along: both sides  ill the street, while a nover-ending  stream of omnibuses, cabs, carte,  waggons, and un occasional motor,  works its sluggish course to and  from the city of the Lord Mayor nntl  corporation.

The \vondor is that stillicient precautions can he made to ensure tho  safety of pedestrians. As for the  general trallic of the streets, no  amount of railway relief, underground, seems to make any difference  in its volume or extent, and rather  to increase both. If you want to  see the London streets, you should  ���������walk or drive through them at four  or five in the morning. Then you  wil] wonder at trie things yorr have  never before seen in them���������their remarkably artistic sky line, their architectural points that are unob-  sorvublo in the rush and htiiry of the  crowd, and tho singular undulations  of the roadways.

AT A LONDON CAB  STAND.  "Not in any city in  the world  will  you observe such a general aK|>ect of  'cheerfulness  among  the     drivers     of  public \ohicles  as in- London.   There  * is no harder worked set of men and  none more civil. It is arr education  of a kind to frequent a London cabstand. The contrast with New  .Vork for example is very remarkable. The New Yorkers waiting for  fares aro a serious and silent lot.  To them life seems to be a thing to  tolerate; work a necessity to be  borne with a frown. A good deal of  this may come from the continual  change of work and the more cos-  inopolitan character of the local  whips. Whatever the cause may be  ���������temperament, manners, or what  not���������the difference is very marked.  At a London cab-stand, most, mon  scorn, to know each other or to havo  mot somewhere, arrd all of thorn feel  a community of irrto*. ests. There i.s  generally a wit amongst thein, - always a politician, and very rarely a  dullard. And when a cabman contests ^with you the question of his  fare, he is more frequently sarcastically polite than rude. '.'You know  how to lay out your money, don't  you ?" of "Do you think I'm driving this affair for amusement ?*'     or  __"V.'hnt_ price .consols.?'..*.. as-I_lieard_a  smart hansom whip ask a venerable  looking gentleman whilo contemplating his shilling fare in his open hand  "I'm looking for an investment."  Now nnd then you meet with a bully, but hc is to be found among all  clnsses of the community, and your  only chance with him is to give him  oracular blow for blow.  THE PICTURESQUE PAST.  It is diflleult in theso days to  reali7o tiro picturcsquoncss of Fleet  street and thc Strand when Goldsmith and Johnson took their walks  there; and still more diflleult'to go  as far back as '.'The Cock" tavern,  when I'epys atc a lobster thero with  Mrs. l'ieico ond Mrs. Knipp. In  the earliest days of Georgo III.  Teinplo Bar was the portal, of an avenue of many gabled houses, from  the fronts of which swung trade  signs of innumorabfo variety. There  were Saracen's Heads and Golden  Keys, Red Lions and IMnc Bears,  Bibles and  Crowns and Jlitres.      By  day     they    made   a   brave show of  color.      At night  thoy creaked     and ! fire  a bomb-proof is  groaned  a chorus  of  strange accom-  source.  calibre military rifle, that entrenchments in somo form or othei- arc  absolutely essential to troops in the  open. The man who in ,the face of  the enemy can burrow the quickest,  and at the samo time is prepared to  spring forward and - scizo the opportunity thnt is afforded, is the best  modern-day soldier.  The absolute necessity for thc spade  on the field of battle was first clearly demonstrated in the Russo-Turkish  war, when modern rides woro brought  into play. So great, indeed, was the  necessity tliat the Russian General  SkobolorT provided every man in his  command with a spado, and when his  mon reached the outskirts of Constantinople, it was found they had  discorded every article except their  spades, belts.- and rifles. Thoy had  learned a bitter and an unexpected  lesson.  AT PLEVNA. ;_  At tho entrenchments of Plevna  thoy discovered to tlieir cost the havoc that could be created by determined men 'with plenty of ammunition behind earthworks. The Turks  had used their sp.ades with a. right  good will, and in addition to their  fighting trenches, had erected bombproof works thnt wero afterwnrdsjthe  hdmiral"it>h_of_tho"\vorla*7 ATPlevntiT  the Turks lived entirely within their  bomb-proofs during the bombardment  by the heavy artillery, and when the  assaulting columns pushed to thc  front 1ho Turks sallied out and, lining their lighting trenches, drove the  Russians back with terrible, slaughter.

Some    of the Prices  Obtained    for  Now Varieties in England.  ���������Country folk generally may have  no particular reason to bo thankful  for tho- very small mercies of 19011,  but thero are some who will admit  that they really didn't do so badly  out of their ��������� potato crop at any  rate. As a matter of fact, several  respectable fortunes have beeu made  during the pnst six months by the  shrewder fanners and the still  shrewder  seedsmen.  And in no part of the couniry has  tho boom���������for it amounts to nothing  Jess���������reached a higher pitch than in  the fens of Lincolnshire���������thc county  par excellence for the onco plebeian  potato.  A variety called "Northern Star"  was first put upon the market in  1902 at ten shillings a pound. In  the early part of last year the price  had fallen to 5s., but then came the  boom, and "Stars" rose to 7s 6d.,  to 113s. to ii-1. And no' wonder, for  so prolific is that potato that from  a quarter of a ton of seed-tubers  one farmer "fifled" 33 tons, valued  at ������5,400, the seed costing him  something less  than ������150.  But thc sensation of thc season  was the coming of thc "Eldorado."  Raised in Scotland, which country is  the nursery of most new varieties,  the grower amazed the agricultural  world by scorning to accept nn offer  of ������10 per lb.

Scenes in an Interesting People's  Principal City.  Tokio, perhaps the mo������( interesting of thc world's capitals nt Pro-  sent, was formei ly known as Yedo  or Yeddu. It stands on tho banks  of tho Samida, which is unnavigablo  owing to the silting up of the mouth  tho port being Yokohama. It is  quite a considerable place with a  population of about a million and a  half, but it exhibits a strange mixture of the up-to-date and the mediaeval. Tho streets in many places  arc narrow and irregular and do not  permit of heavy trallic, while tlio  pavement cf pebbles ret in clay, excellent in fine weather, is not in  rainy seasons a pleasant promenade.  The principal streets in the business  quarters arc lighted by electricity or  gas, or in somo cases by oil lamps,  but in most parts''of. the town ,it is  a question of darkness made visible,  while in some parts there is no attempt at public lighting at nil, and  tho wayfarer must carry his own  lantern. Similarly the rickshaw, or  coolie propelled hansom, exists sido  by side with the electric trams. The  lower part of the city covering tho  river fiats is intersected by canals  which, with their picturesque bridges  form one of the. most ;-triking features of the city. Ono of these, culled- the Bridge cf Japan,  is the   con-  Corca is a land of extreme beauty  and fertility, though it has for  years suffered from certain political  evils which wo may the morc easily  understand as they have analogies  nearer homo. Jt has a land question almost identical with tho Irish  land question, except that, in Ireland, the landlords wore additionally  odious as representatives of foreign  conquest and foreign domination, the  rule of nn alien race and an alien  faith. But in both Corea. and Ireland the heart of the land question,  economically * speaking, -was th������>  same; a ycar-lo-year tenancy which  gave the landlord the right to raise  thc rent every time the tenant. improved his holding by clearing,  draining, building, or fertilizing.  This system in Corea, as in Ireland,  kept Jthe peasant tlass iii perpetual  poverty, and 'made all hope of progress for them impossible. The absenteeism of the Irish landlords was  repeated in Corea, as tlio land-owning class invariably streamed to the  capital, to take party in its pleasures and amusements, and to participate in the court life, which, for  splendor of pagentry and costumes,  and for elaborate detail of etiquette,  was a close second to the court of  Vienna in' the days before Sadowa  and the legislative secession of Hungary.  A second evil, anci a. very seriou.**  one, in Corea, we can best realize by  what wc have recently read of Bulgarian-Macedonia under "Turkish  rule; it is tl e evil of tax-farming  lined with extortion and dishonesty.  A political writer of much' acutonesi)  has spoken of tlie Constantinople  hierarchy in the Koumania of olden  dajs as "a cascade of simony"; we  might, with some justice, speak of  the governmental system of Corea as  a, "cascade of extortion." The peasant groans an'd pays the bill, just  as he does in tho practically Ofcudal  India of to-day. B*rt the Corean  peasant ls further thc victim of a  cruel and barbarous criminal law,  with punishments as capricious as  they are severe, and here the Indian  ryot has immeasurably tho advan-  ttfgcT���������since; ln_tlic"British'-lndian  Empire, the law can neither be  bought nor delayed.  JAPAN'S MISSIONARY ZRAL.  Add to this that thc central government hns never assimilated tho  modern doctrine that governments  exist for the good of the people, and  to develop and 'distribute the resources of the country; and that the  Corean army was a costly luxury of  the court, but wholly inellicacious  against foreign foes, and we havo n  fairly trim estimate of thc internal  condition of the Heriuil Kingdom.  Noi' can it bc doubled thut Japan  was inspired b.v genuine missionary  yeai. acconipanio'd, without doubt,  by feelings less disinterested, in her  attempt to modernize Corea, immediately before and during the war  with* China in 1894.

The   old   Breyfogle   mine    in     thc  i southern  desert  has  sent  a'hundred  souls to their ..inker, but it  did result  in the discovery of Jfansbing, and the  Yellow Astor mine has taken  millions  in money from the ground.    It was  a  prospector   who  was looking for the  lost   Breyfogle   who   ran    across  the  desert mines, ami his knowledge soon  became known to the world  with the  result  that  old    mother   earth    lias  turned     over     considerable     of   her  treasure to  the world  and   tlie   men  who bought out tlie lucky prospector.  Out at Tonopah the discovery .came  about by Jim  Buller   looking   forn  mythical mine, and when  he found it  lie   did   not  recognize   the     ground.  Judge  Hawthorn   found   oil'!   of   the  Tonopah mines on ono of his  pilgrimages ottt  that  way,   but  he   lost   his  bearings, and   tho  ground  was  never  again found until the  luck}'   day  Jim  Butler  happened  on   to  it,    says tho  Carson Appeal.  Half of the mines in Nevada that  are now on the map were found by  some one who was on u wild-goose  chase, led there by some story 'of  riches that a prospector had found and  then lost again. Several parties in  every mining town have taken stock  in lost mines and whilo they have  never realized through the ventures,  yet they ate willing lo try again. The  old Snowshoe Thompson mine, which  he lold of on his deathbed, resulted iu  the discovery of the Alpine mines and  prospectors are looking for the oM  mine until this day, and every s-.aion  brings in a new property from the  effect of the hunt. The case is the  same in every country antl section.  It's the lost mines that tire bringing  out the new ones, and so long as  people believe theic will be new  ground found where the old was lost.  ���������E. & M. Review. San Francisco,  A PECULIAR FEATURE OF  CONTRACT.  It will appear to the average volei  that tlie Grand Tiunk, having induced  the government to builcl-$151.000,00t.  worth of the new transcontinental  railway, while the company pays foi  only SM.500,000 worth of it, would  have been satisfied. But there seeim*  to be no limit to the demands of tlu-  UTefrwHoTiTeengirreeHiig'tlie deal��������� I ri  addition lo the concessions set forth,  the Grand Tiunk drovo the government into an arrangement where!.}  tlie country, tit the end of the company's fifty year li*a-e, will bo compelled to take over such non paying  brunches ns the company may elect to  dispose of. Of course the country will  be forced to hold the bankrupt portions of the line.  But the government, in addition to  assenting to such generous  terms for  the company, huve stipulated that, at  the end of the lease, the  Grand Trunk  shall have running rights   for a f in-  ther   period   of  fifty   years  over the  Eastern   division.     That  ii.ieans.thnt  the Grand Trunk  will be iu n position  to compete with  the government ovei  a line built  exclusively  by the people.  But this  section  of   the rood extendi,  only   to   Winnipeg, and   will  include  ouly such feeders as the Grand Trunk  will   have   found   to   be unprofitable.  The  Grand Trunk on the other hand  will bold the AVestern section and the  paying   branches.     On none of  these  will the government have the right to  run its trains.   Why should the Grand  Trunk get running rights on the government section,   whilst  the latter i.s  to   be   shut out from   the company's  territory?     Could   a  more ridiculous  arrangement  be  imagined ?   But it is  to such a scheme that Sir W. Laurier  tjjas committed Canada.  Work on Grand Trunk Pacific  to Commence in B. C Simultaneously With Starting of  Construction on the Eastern  Sections.  "Work on tlie construction of the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway will coin  muiico on the I'acilic cotist end ol" the  line simultaneously wilh tliu beginning of operations on the eastern  sections. A provision to this elfect  will bo incorporated in the bill now  before parlirimisiit. This highly im  poi'tiint piece of news was received  .Saturday by ollicials of the Victoria  Board of Trade, which lias been active  in endeavoring to secure government  consent to such astipulation.  The announcement will be hailed  with the keenest pleasure by the people of British. Columbia, indicating as  it does an era of unprecedented  activity on this const. The arrangement obviously implies that the vast  equipment necessary to nntke a commencement on construction work on  the Pacific Coast will require to be  transported from British Columbia  ports to the scone of operations, thus  creating a great activity in shipping  and furnishing employ incut to a host  of men.  The outfitting of the big party, the  huge quantity of supplies lreeded, lire  demand for horses, and the other  requirements of such a lingo undertaking, implies the certainty of a  tremendous impetus lo industrial  conditions, and a commercial awakening such ns has never before been  witnessed on this coast.  It will bo recalled that during Uio  construction of the C. P. R. the Pacific  Coast benefitted to a- vory small degree  ���������equipment and supplies following  tlio rails fronr the cast; but even then  n great throb of activity was felt in  British Columbia. Now, however,  wilh the certainty that construction  will commence from the Pacific Co.isi  simultaneously with beginning work  on the eastern sections, there is the  gnu ran tee of (he ushering in of an era  of unparalleled prosperity. Go( d  times in the truest and best sense t f  the phrase, will bo present, lo the  people and tlio upbuilding and development of tlio land whose resources  are unequalled in any similar area on  the globe.���������Colonist.  anil truck fanning pay large profits  heciutso the fili-iniu'gets his products  into market six Weeks earlier than the  farmer of any other section.

Control of disease.���������Pruning is of  prime importance also in controlling  the action of some of our most dreaded plant diseases. Tho study of pear-  blight, for instance, has shown that  this disease is very generally communicated from ijlant to plant by  insects, through the pollen, as they  pass from blossom to blossom, or,  later in the season, from shoot to  shoot. It is also believed that the  disease eau bu carried by the wind  and .that infection can take place  while the vegetative processes are ac-  | tivc and the tissue at the ends of the  'branches can . easily be entered by  I the germs of the disease,  i Pear-bliglit.���������Tho way in which  i pruning  is  of     service  in  controlling  Result "of  "French  Alienist's  Investigations.

Clean  milking is of greater importance,  however,  in keeping up a full  flow.  There should always be a friendly  feeling between the cow and the  milkjer, and milkers should not be  changed any oftener than is absolutely necessary. Our best dairymen  lay special stress upon these two  points, and it is well for every body  to do likewise.  Don't be irregular about the milking timo. have a definite hour in the  morning, and at night, and milk at  these appointed times. Tlie. samo  applied to feeding periods and the importance of these f,acts cannot bo  over estimated.

MOUH'TAIK' MUSIC.  Strang-e    Formation     of     Musical  Bocks in Nevada.  From the shores of Pyramid Lake,  near the Truck'ce River, Nevada, rise  the rock-covered slopes of a musical  mountain. It is little known to  man of the present age, for it has  no mines, and the country about its  base is barren and unfit for cultivation, while the absence of a railway  or coaching' convenience puts it out  of the beaten track of the tourists.  In 13<53 it was '-first discovered by  a. party of white settlers, who had  come prospecting from Conistock,  and wiio pitched their camp alongside a waterhole at the foot of the  mountain.  When the sun had gone down, and  the myriads ot insects had ceased  their humming, and the animals had  sought their lairs, a low sweet  sound of music seemed to emanate  from tlie mountain side, beginning  like the tinkling of millions of fairy  bell:-*, gradually swelling into a roll  of harmony. and then stopping  almost abruptly.  In a short time the operation ,wns  repeated, and tho sweetest sounds  rl1uft~exer~fell~6^^  Ike calm evening air. Theories*,  wild arrd improbable were propounded by thc prospectors, but no satisfactory reason was forthcoming, and  the sounds continued at intervals,  throughout the night, becoming inaudible at sunrise.  After a time it wits discover by  those men who developod a groatcr  interest, in the musical phenomenon  than in prospecting that thu whole  of the mountain side Was covered  wilh fit In flakes of crystalline rock,  lying in large beds, which were ever  moving slowly, like an avalanche,  townrdn the foot. Hosing their  iheo'ier? on this .discovery, they arrived at the conclusion Llnil. the  strains of music arose from the  friction of these plates one against  the olher; nnd that the sounds of  thc world drowned the music: by day  which accounted for its only being  audible  (tt  night.  s;, stems can endure���������paralysis or  prostration  follows.

A  couple of years ago the Bishop attended a. confirmation at Boston,  England. Tliere ho heard of a poor-  crippled girl who had been prepared  for confirmation, but could not bo  brought to llic service. Without,  more ado, despite his three-score and  twelve yours and a driving- rain, and  bltisterim*- wind, ho set out and walked the two miles that separated the  cottage of the girl from tlie church.  The 'service in her bedroom lost nothing, of its' beauty or solemnity because of  its, moan  surroundings.  The Crown Princess . of Sweden,  who is very pretty and popular, goon  by the name of "The Coldnol's Wife."  Tho Crown Prince, unlike bis poet  father, is a military .enthusiast,, and  is. honorary colonel of several regiments. When he was first married he  took his young bride into the headquarters of tho regiment of which ho  was then acting colonel, and said:  "Gentlemen, the? colonel in command  of the regiment, desires to introduce)  his wife to tho regiment." The '  charming young wifo was received  with rounds of applause, and the  name has stuck to "her "ever "] since.  The Crown Princess is ti notable  cook, and- this gift, which she has  falcon great care to perfect, viadc huv  a prime favorite with the pltl Emperor William of Germany.  Many good stories arc told .of; Pir  Walter Parratt,' the Master or the  King's Jrirsic. Here is one illustrative of his extraordinary memory.  Some eight or ton men were assembled one evening in one of the lodgings attached to St. Michael's College, Tenbury. Sir Walter Parratt.  and Herr von Hoist played in tunr  upon the piano such music ns was  asked for. This went on for sonic,  time, until nt last the chess-board  was brought out; Sir Walter then  iproposod to play two men at. chess  in consultation,, still remaining. at  the piano and playing from memory  what was demanded, cither from  Bach, Dcethoven, 'Mozart, Chopin, 01-  Mcndclssohn.

"Burglars' weather," remarked the  officer to himself ns ho halted n*>d  listened. "I wonder whether tho  gentleman who has boon so busy  round this neighborhood recently is  at work to-night."  . flush I     What was that?  Tlio constable craned forward, drew  book, crouched, and then starting  suddenly erect, called upon a man  who waa slouching past to halt.  For answer there rung out a couple  of revolver shots. Robinson was  hit, and staggered back, but, instantly recovering himself, he darted at  his.would-be murdered.  ���������Hid latter fired three more, shots,  which missed, and the next instant  was felled to thc ground by a blow  from the constable's truncheon.  Even? then, however, hc discVnined  to surrender. Instead, he drew a  liugc knife from an inner pocket of  his jacket, and tried to stab his captor in the stomach and throat.  /'. ���������' Hut in tho end he was overpowered  and taken to the station. Ho gave  liis name as "Jem Ward," and claimed lo be a half-caste sailor from America. Tlie empty -revolver���������a fine,  brand-new; weapon���������was found securely strapped to his wrist.  -'At first his captors were inclined to  credit his story, but after a day or  two of confinement his face was noticed lo have got perceptibly paler.  A closer examination revealed that  ������������������ It had been stained with walnut-  juice.  This discovery put the police on  their mettle. Here, evidently, was  no ordinary criminal. So the best  and keenest intellects nt their disposal wore set to work to solve the  problem of their mysterious prisoner's identity.  And they succeeded ih th'e end; but  only aftor long and patient inquiry.  At first, indeed, they thought his  namo was Johnson, for under this  alias hc was found to have been liv-'  ing in style in n fine house at Peck-  h'am.  Hut afterwards it wns discovered  that he was in reality Charles Peace,  a burglar by profession, and a murderer upon occasion.  And then,  lilllo  by  little,  was  unravelled    the     whole    of his sordid,  ���������.strange - llfe-sfory.  Originally an ordinary laboring  man, Peace very early in his career  ' ' made up his mind that hard work  vvas not at all to his liking, and, after various escapades in different  ���������parts of the country, he blossomed  forth on thc music-hall stage as "The  Ethiopian Pnganini."  He. wns fairly successful in his now  role, too. for lie was a clever violinist. Hut he wanted to get rich too  quickly, -engineered a big burglary,  .got caught, and received a sentence  of five years' penal servitude.  On his release he organized the ela7  "borate system of wholesale robbery,  which was eventually to render his  name notorious all over the civilized  world.  He would have no' male accomplices, and he confined himself to no locality. At Sheffield, Nottingham, and  ���������elsewhere, as well as at Lambeth and  at Peckhani, he Tented houses in respectable localities, where he passed  ns a man of substance, and which he  used as depots for the proceeds of  his burglaries.  When things began to got too hot  for him at one place, he went to  another. At each of his numerous"  houses he had installed a lady housekeeper, so that he always had ready  to hand half a dozen secure and comfortable hiding places.  When not ."working." lie amused  himself with hitr violin, on which,  however, he played only sacred mu-  ���������sic:���������He^was=also=a���������clcver-carver-iiv  wood, and it was-recalled afterwards  us a curious fact, that he carved-little else save models of churches and  cathedrals.  Another trait in his character, that  served him in excellent stead was his  '.ulont for disguises. At Peckhani,  ���������������������������or instance,, ho was a one-armed  man���������his artificial limb, made by  himself, ? is in the Scotland Yard  "Criminal Museum at this moment���������  and even those who knew him most  intimately novel* onco suspected the  trick that was being played upon  them.

In Sheffield he  one face  was believed to be a wealthy dealer      No  man  in real restate. for one  It was in this latter town that he  met and fell in love with ? Mrs. ICate  Dyson, a pretty and vivicacious lit���������  . tie American, woman. Her husband  objected to his too evident attentions. "-''Whereupon' Peace, who never  -' went unarmed" actually, shot him dead  in tho "pi'c's'enoa of his wife. ?  This dastardly, murder was committed-on ;Novcmbcr 22nd, 1870, and  it wns not by any means his first.  Hardly'eighteen months previously,  a young policeman named Cock had  attempted to arrest him while in the  act of breaking into a. .house, but,  less lucky or loss adroit than Robinson, had fallen a victim to the burglar's deadly revolver.  For this latter crime mi entirely  innocent'.man, named William Harbon  was arrested and sentenced to the  gallows. Fortunately tho Homo-Secretary'.commuted the death penalty  to one. of life-long pcnul servitude,  and when Pence was condemned for  the murder of Dyson lie confessed to  thai, of Constable Cock, turd Harbon  ���������was    releasee". Hut    lhe    -iniluc(ty  young man Iind then served seven  years In -'prist,-!.- However, as somo  compensation, J<*v     this,  Uie Govern  ment awarded     him tho sum of S?4,-  000.  Th'eso two murders woro the r^nly  ones that woro actually brought  homo to Peace, but it is believed  that ho committed at least throe  others. Indeed, during his long career of crime, ho never hesitated to  take life when lie thought such a  courso needful for the furtherance of  his ninny plans.  Nevertheless, tho man was full of  strange contrasts. He had, for example, a pony which used to follow  him about like a dog. antf of which  ho was inordinately fond. When it  was ill, he sat up with it night after  night, and on its death he broke  down utterly, crying bitterly for  hours together.  He kept all sorts of pots, too���������canaries, whito mico, dogs, cats, a parrot, und a gont, and was uniformly  kind to all of them.  Ovor Romen he soemod to oxercise  a species of magnotic fascination, and  this despite a physiognomy that was  well-nigh rcpulsivo in its ugliness.  Thero can be no shadow of a doubt  that he completely won tho heart of  the unfortunate Mrs. Dyson; and it  is significant that not one of his  many house-keepers betrayed him, although they must havo known perfectly well what his real business  was.  His audacity knew no bounds. At  Hull, at a timo when tho streets of  tho town wero actually placarded  with bills offoring $500 for information as to his whereabouts, he took  lodgings in tho houso of a sergeant of  police", with a view to learning all  ho could concerning the plans afoot  for his. capture. Ho was then so  cloverly disguised that his own wife  and son passed him by without recognizing him.  On another occasion a detective  from Shields, who happened to bo in  London on private business, thought  he recognized Peace near Westminster  Abbey, and followed him. The latter, neodless to say, know ho was being shadowed. But ho gave no sign  of trepidation. Instead, he strodo  straight across Parliament Street  and into Scotland Yard, and thence  doubled back through a public-house  passage to the left.

Ho knew that the widow of his victim had been brought  back from America to identify him,  and must have felt that, metaphorically, the rope was at  his throat.  One last chance he had, and he  took it. While the train was going  at full speed, ho suddenly bounded  from his seal, and threw himself  headlong through tho open carriage  window.

Always buy tlie steak  salmon, as it is best, and, when onco  a good brand is found, keep to it.  Boiled Salmon���������Drop the can, free  from wrappings, into a kottle of hot  water, and lot it boil 20 minutes. Cut  the can open, turn out the salmon,  take ofl* the skin iind bono without  breaking, and pour oil' tho liquid. If  tho quantity seems insufficient, boil 4  or 5 eggs as long as you boil tha  salmon. Take oil' tho shells, cut 3 in  halves lengthwise, and arrange them  around the flsh. Make a white sauce  and sift tho other 2 eggs into it, pour  over salmon and servo with peas and  boiled potatoes, followed by. a cucumber and lettuce salad. When family  is small, eggs may be omitted. Keep  best brand of canned peas on hand  and when open wash woll before heating and seasoning.  Salmon Patties���������Open a can of  salmon, pour oft liquid and put into  hot water; heat to boiling, then remove all skin and bono aftor draining. Break into small pieces. Put  saucepan over tlio fire witli buttor the  sizo of an egg if whole of salmon is  to bo used; as it melts, stir in a heaping tablespoon of flour, and when  smooth add water until it is the consistency of thick cream, Salt to  tnsto, and also use popper (cayenne if  liked), a bit of grated lemon peel,  a sprig of chopped parsley and a- few  drops of onion julco for seasoning;  put In the salmon and heat without  mashing. Fill patty shells, which  can be made in a few minutes if  pasto is made onco or twice a week  and kept in ico chest.  Salmon on Toast���������-Prepare the salmon as in the above recipe; havo  ready a platter of hot buttered toast,  heap a spoonful on each slice and  garnish' with lemon points and parsley.

A  wido bridge spans this at its narrowest place and leads d'own a broad  road to the gates of the arsenal and  dockyard.  Givon time, the Russians would  have made a model city of. Port-'Arthur; but, unfortunately, moro attention was paid (and from their point  of view rightly so) to its defences  than to its development along peaceful lines.  THE  ADMINISTRATION  of the town was entrusted to a committee of officers under tho presidency  of tho- Viceroy, and in his absence tho  senior naval officer present.

A  line of steamers under Russian control made daily trips to Chefoo, eight  hours distant, and Russian "tramps"  had been' taking more and more of  the Corean coast trade nway from  the Japanese, who until recently possessed a practical monopoly.  One more feature is worthy of notice���������the so-called impregnability of  Port Arthur. From the sea I think  it ivould l;o almost as impossible lo  capture as Gibraltar, and ships  moored-in the inner harbor would lie  in perfect safety.

'  Pinnacle Rock on the west to the oj>-  positc shore is barely 350 yards,  whilst the threo-fathom channel nt its  narrowest is not more than 500 feet  in width. Within the heads it widens out somewhat, und between ythe  end of tho Tiger's Tall and the entrance to the basin thore is a width  of 480 ynrds: oven this ma Ices it a  most difficult task for any vessel over  300 feet in length tb cntot or leave  cither the harbor or basin.  On the Tiger's Tall aro placed seven Canet 5.5-inch quick-firers in an  open battery at an elevation of not  moro than 10 feet above the sea;-at  the extreme end of the spit is n  quadruple launching slip for destroyers, from which two lots of four have  recently been launched - after being  sent out in sections. Behind this,  again, is a circular observation tower and. flagstaff.  THE BASIN OR EAST PORT  was excavated primarily by the Chinese, as also the dry-dock cut in its  northern side. It has ah average  depth of 3j fathoms and citn accommodate nearly a dozen large vessels.  Tne western end is devoted exclusively to torpedo craft, though a dock  for these small boats is in the process of construction on the eastern  side. The dry-dock, repaired ::and  enlarged by the Russians, is 452 feet  over all, 370 feet over blocks, 90  feet wide at the entrance, and has a  depth on tlio sill at high" water, ordinary spriug tides, of 32 feet: These  figures are interesting, for they show  that, oveu with her draught augmented nearly 6 feet, the Retvizan might  still enter the dock for repairs at  high water. An 80-ton shcerlogs is  in position on thc land side of the  basin, and immense engine shops and  repairing houses ar. in course of  construction wherever thero is an  available plot of land. Just inside  tlio Tiger's Tail the mud has been  dredged away     so as to allow     de-  projectiles so discharged would more  probably range far into the town at  the back. From lho land sido it is  difficult to judge of the value of the  defences, but it appeared fo me that  a determined foo might very conceivably 1-c able to rush the place by ,-x  concerted attack from several points.  But for these and other matters-wc  must await the course of events.  NOTES FROM MA XYWHERE.  Air famine is.the common cause of  Pneumonia.

A good ���������dishwasher needs a bright  tin or porcelain dishpan and drainer,  a supply of ��������� water, and tea towels  that leave no lint....Do not dump the  dishes into the pan promiscuously,  thereby running the risk of breaking  half of them. When the food is removed from thp table scrape . the  plates and drain out any coffee or  tea that is left in the cups. Pile the  plates together, tlicn the saucers,  cups and small dishes. Have the pan  half full of water that is as hot as  you can bear your hands in, put in  enough gold dust washing powder to  make n good suds, and. wash the  glasses first, then the silverware, and  after that the china. Put thorn in  the drainer, pour warm water over  thorn to rinse thorn, and dry .with" a  clean dish towel. Care is required at  every stop of tlie p_rocess.

Japan Has a Powerful Navy,  and  Excellent Sea Bases of  Supply.  Angus Hamilton, in his book on  "Korea," compares Russia and  Japan in the struggk which ho then  saw  was  impending.  Mr. Hamilton agrees with other  students of tho Far F.astmcn situation that to use his own language,  ���������'Certainly in tho annals of military  history, excluding the march of Napoleon upon Moscow, ihere is nor war  which may be said-to havo developed a parallel to the task which besets Russia in Manchuria and Korea." In-explaining what he means  by this remark, Mr. Hamilton says '  "Upon land a single line of railway traversing the heart of an enemy's country terminates at Port  Arthur. At sea Vladivostock' is cut  off by reason of its position, while  it is inaccessible on account of its  climate. These points, Vladivostock  and Port Arthur, define the extremities of the stratogic position which  Russia holds in Manchuria," Tli.  author decides that Port Arthur for  the opening moves of the war must  become the pivot of operations.  In tho discussion of Uie value of  Port Arthur as a military and naval  base he points out that it must b.  many years beforo the limited accommodations of the port can bo increased. Of Port Arthur he says in  part :  "Port Arthur is happy in the possession of all thore objects which to  a naval base are component parts  of success. The dry dock, somewhat  weak and unsubstantial, is 3S5 foet  in length, 34 feet in depUi, and 80  feet broad, wliile the naval basin i9  equal in surface space to tho total  available steamer anchorage in tho  harbor proper." It is pointed out  thnt when the dredging operations in  contemplation are completed the harbor will afford a surface anchorngo  of more than a square mile, "but,"  says Mr. Hamilton, "until tho work  has been executed the value of Port  Arthur as a satisfactory naval base  is infinitely less than the prestlgo  which it enjoys as an impregnable  WHERE" JAPAN IS STRONG.  "After a brief reference to Vladivostock as probably too far removed  from the scene of hostilities to bo  worth considering, the author points  out the overwhelming advantages of  Japan in the matter of naval bases  for the naval operations which must  mark the beginning of the war. Of  these stations Japan has no less  than nine scattered about at important strategic points.  His comparison of the numerical -  and tonnage tea strength of thc two  powers, while interesting in that it  gives Russia the greater, has now  become obsolete in the light of de-  monsU'ated superiority on the part  of thc Japs.  Due weight is given to the superiority of Russia's military resources,  but he points out that Russian  troops are slow movers, and though  they may be relied upon to fight  to the lust ditch in actual combat,  the lack of individual initiative on  tho part of Russian officers will certainly deprive their operations of tho  dash and mobility so characteristic  of the Japanese army. He also  foresees that-though much is expoct-  ed of tlio'Siberian Railway, its great  weakly guarded length will provo a  perpetual strain upon : llustia's  strength and authority. Mr. nam-  predicts that no opportunity  ill   be missed    by the    natives  Foreigners Cling- to Belief in Bleeding.  - Tiie uso of leeches, according to a  retail druggist in an Italian quarter  of the city, .is increasing. This is  likely to bo news to many physicians  nnd certainly to tlie laity, who have  thought that bleeding was a dead  medical theory.  The druggist who made the statement had just sold something in a  small box to a group of Italians  whom he liad charged 25 cents. Afterwards he explained that .it was a  leech, and then hc added that sales  wero increasing in drug stores which  find their patrons among the foreigners of the .large cities.  They are raised mostly in Sweden,  where thoy ore cultivated in leech  lakes. Thoy are sold at *! cents each  at' wholesale, but tlie retail druggist  adds heavily to tho price. "Wo have  to do it," said the druggist. "They  dic if thoy get too warm or too cold,  and 5rou are out what you paid for  them.  Tho sale of them is constantly increasing. It is due to the fact that  tho foreign population of the country  is growing all thc time. Tn this  country tho natives do not look upon  bleeding as a cure for all manner of  things, but in many foreign countries  that is tho first thing thoy think    of | ^{lon  when anything is the matter with a I m be-m������ssed --bv the natives of  person.

There is one chapter in  the   boolc,  thatwhich deals with Russian  interests in Korea,  in  which  the    author  sheds  some  light  upon   the  meaning  I of it all.   This is summed up in  th.  ! ormning sentence, "Russian industilal  activity   in Korea may be  regarded  as a cloak  for political schemes. '  Mr. Hamilton goes on to show how  Japan neglected the opportunity to  make permanent a political ascen-  -danc?���������in=Ko;*ea~w?iteii=then=lay-open-  to her. "Before she had realised the  probabilities of her position," he  says, "she had committed herself to  a design b^* which she hoped to secure the King and Queen and to direct herself the reigns of Government."  In summing up the present situation he rays : "Japan still wields  inutcrial influence of a high order  iu' Korea. Hut within the paramount position which she fills there  is a rift caused by the spread oi tho  antagonistic and insidious influence  of her great opponent. Curiously  enough, the position whicli Russia  holds to-day is not nearly as assertive as that which she occupied in  lS'JG, yet there is little doubt that  her influence is more commanding, if  less conspicuously aggressive. Japan  has turned aside upon thc occasion  from the political issues to develop  her commercial interests. Russia  again has pursued, unswerving, tho  policy which revealed witli the fall  China   the    fact thnt Manchuria  ing' whenever anything happens in  the way of an accident, and if one of  them gets bruised the first thing lie  wants is a leech. When one of them  gets into a squabble and comes out  of il with a black eye, nothing but a  leech  will  do  him.  "Tho demand for these ugly little  things is confined almost entirely to  the foreign born element in the city,  and iir a store situated as this one  is we must      Iceep a good  supply of  'lecclies=alwoys=on^liand. -Tn^tbc',  stores situated in the fashionable districts'I doubt if you will bo able to  buy a leech. They, however, may  Icecp them in somo of these, places  just to have them in case they arc  wanted, but it is safe to say they  don't sell a dozen in a year. Do wc?  Yes, indeed. A dozen a day is more  like our record. One, day last week  I sold   thirty-three."  DISHES FOR LENTEN DAYS.  Baked Pickerel���������Cleanse the frsH,  rinse It and wipe dry.

Football   Match  At the conclusion of the lacrosse  match a very interesting game of  football was played between the C.P.R  shop, arrd Revelstoke town clubs, resulting in a win for the shop team by  3 goals to 2. For the C. P. R. team  Feeny, Hugh, Annan and Allen played a iniignilicent game, while the town  who apparently lacked practice, al  time played brilliantly. Purvis al  full-back was like a stone wall, and it  was to be regretted that he had to  ij<iit after about Hi minutes play. Had  lie been able to play throughout the  whole game the score at the final  would have been different. Srnythe,  Hodson and McKinnon as forwards  for the town team did fine work, and  there is no doubt that with practice  the town team will be able to give a  good account of themselves later on,  and it is to be hoped that, these games  will be kept up during the season, as  who have material in this town to cope  with any team in the province.  ty  ty  ty  tyty  ty  ty  tyty  tyty  ty  ty  ty  ty  tyty  tyty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty...  ~ty  ats  PAT. 8EPT., 1900.  ��������� R.
