T  Rockefeller, Rogers, Clark and  Heinze Will   Join   Hands.���������  This Merger Has  a   Capitalization of $2,500,000,000.  New   Yoitk,   June   It.���������Announcement will'be made soon, according' to  the World, of a gigantic new  combination of capital in  tho United Stales  rind Europe.    It is nothing..less  than  an amalgamation of the valuable mines  of America, and  the man . who  is to  consummate   thi.s   stupendous   transaction is John D. Rockefeller.  Men who have some knowledge of  work now going on in "furtherance of  this plan, sny the '.Corporation under  which the big mining interests will he  merged, will have a capital of $2,500,-  000,(100.  It is expected to control absolutely  the mineral output of the United States  except possibly the Calumet & Hucla  copper mine of Michigan.  Within the last ten clays Jlr. Rockefeller has taken up personally the  task which has been previously left to  his brother, W. A. Rockefeller, and to  H. H. Rogers, who has been conspicuously identified with the mineral  interests of the Standard Oil company  for ten years.  Standard Oil millionaires have been  acquiring the mines through their  banking interests. In Colorado David  Moffat and Dennis Sullivan, of tho  First National bank of Denver, have  paid out many millions iu the last six  years for producing mines and are said  to control 70 per cent, of the produc-  tive'gold, silver and lead mines of the  Middle Rocky mountain district. J,  Senator .W. A. Clark, owner of the  United Verde copper mines of Arizona  and'with large holdings in many of the  Amalgamated Copper company mines  in Montana, has,.heen working with  Rogers for several years;  ���������Extensive placer gold - interests in  Southern California are controlled' by  Southern California banks in such a  way that they can be taken over at  any time.  It is understood thatK. ? A.. Heinze,  has a condition for turning his Montana  mining interests into the big combination, demands that he be made an  officer of the company in order to  keep certain promises he has made to  labor unions. Heinze will probably  he made an officer. v  ennnecl.ion with tlie Canadian militia  maintained. Sir F. Burden lias taken  authority lo appoint an inspector  general who will bo an imperial  officer. His duties will bo simply to  attend crimps and inspect thedilTcrent  militia corps. He will have no administrative functions.  DiSMiSSlED  Grand Orange Lodge.  Picton,  Out.,  June 11.���������The Grand  Orange Lodge of British America concluded its session here last night after  passing   a   resolution reasserting   its  complete independence of all supreme  grand lodges.   The order decided   to  build   a  Wallace memorial' liallT   A  satisfactory statement of  tlie operations of  the   Orange mutual benefit  fund  was submitted,  and it was decided to further extend the usefulness  of thi.s feature by having a IjioOO policy,  and   hy  making  some   provision  for  those who may be partially or* permit-J  nently disabled.   Q>ven Sound was selected as the next place of  meeting  after a spirited contest between that  place and   Vancouver.    The   former  place only won by two votes.  Kitamaat the Terminus.  Victobia, .Tune- 13.���������Indications  point to the Giand Trunk Pacific  building to Kitamaat. Forbes Vernon, who is deeply interested in the  Pacific Northern and:: Oiuineca road,  with charter and subsidy from this  province, has been in the east. He is  on his way home now, coming hy way  "of St. Louis. His mission east is said  to have been to- interest the Grand  Trunk in taking over the charter of  the Pacific Northern and,to build from  Hazelton to Kitamaat. Mr. Vernon  held several .conferences with Mr.  Hays, and it is understood negotiations  .weie very satisfactory. Charles Clifford, member for Cassiar, is leaving  for Kitamaat Thursday to build a  wharf there. Coming incidental with  tha close of Vernon's visit to Montreal  indicates that some- arrangement has  been entered into for a branch at  least of the Grand Trunk Pacific over  the route of.the_ Pacific Northern. The  route is surveyed- up the valley, nowhere having one".per cent, grade.  Kitamaat is easily approached and is  free from ice the year lound.  CATASTROPHE  ^-#<������3+-*$Hfr^4fc*$H|*-  Order in Council Passes Cancelling Commanding Officer's  Appointment.���������Other Interesting Situations.  ��������� Ottawa, June 13.���������The Dundonald-  Fishcr incident was under consideration to-duy_by_the_Cahinet,_and_an_  Order-in-Council wa.s passed cancrlling  the appointment of Lord Dundonald  as major-general commanding the  militia, or in other words dismissing  him from his position. Lord Dun-  donald had Hatly announced tliat he  would , not resign. The minute of  council goes down to his excellency  to-night, and will be signed by him  tomorrow. Tlie official announcement may be forthcoming Wednesday  unless in thc*meantime the opposition  force a . statement from the' govern  ment* The grounds for dismissing the  general is a breach of military discipline and constitutional usage. There  "was some talk of asking the Imperial  authorities to recall Lord Dundonald,  but this .will not be done, as he simply  holds office, upon the strength of an  order-in-council passed by the government. ��������� The vacancy will not be  filled until after tho session. As the  bill permitting appointment of a Canadian as general officer commanding  li'is not yet become law, Lord Ayhner,  the adjutant general, will take temporary charge of the offices until the!  new Militia Act has been passed.  That the day of the Imperial commanding officer's in Canada is a thing  of the past���������- is generally conceded.  After the tieatment accorded to Lord  Dundonald it will be difficult to induce  any first-class officer to come, to  Canada. The Liberals have it. now  within their power to select an officer  themselves to command, and it is  thought that the office will go to  Colonel Pinault, tlie present deputy  minister.  To modify the feeling, of those who  are desirous  of  seeing   the   imperial  Changes in Customs Tariff  Below'we give a list of the principal  changes in the tariff*, intimation" of  which was made in our previous issue.  For the purpose of comparison the  old Schedule A rates (which carried a  preference of one-third off on British  goods) are given here as well as the  new rales:  Woollen fabrics, wearing apparel,  ready made clothing, etc., Schedule A,  35 per cent, ad valorem; new-rale, 30  pei' cent, ad valorem.  Twine and cordage, Schedule A, 25  per cent, ad valorem; new rate, 20 per  cent, ad valorem.  Tableware rind china, porcelain or  other clay, Schedule A, 30 per cent, ad  valorem: new rate 15 cents ad valorem.  There are also several other items of  less import ance mentioned under  the  alteration of reciprocal tariff's.   Illuminatingj3nsj*osting_jnore than  Five Hundred  Persons Burned  ���������Awful   Ending  to   Sunday  School Picnic at New York-  Victims Mostly Children  Nisw Yoiiiv, June 15.���������Five hundred  persons,   mostly    children,    perished  today hy the burning of Ihe excursion  steamer "General Slocum," near Hell  Gate in the Kast river. The Slocum,  liaving on board the annual Sunday  School excursion of St. Mark's German Lutheran church of this city, was  on her way up the river to a resort on  Long Islaud Sound.  When just off about 125th street,  persons on shore saw smoke and  flames spring from the upper part of  the crowded steamer. A panic ensued  on the boat immediately. The crowds  on the forward deck, panic stricken,  began to spring overboard or t(i crowd  to the after part of the boat. The  screams of the terrified passengers  could be heard on shore and hundreds  of small boats immediately put off to  the rescue. Owing to the rocks on  either side of the channel at this point,  it was impossible to beach thc vessel.  The captain stuck to his post and  steered the vessel straight through  Hell Gate for North Brother Island  where she went ashore in the shallow  water. Five hundred feet of open  .water lay between the burning  'steamer and the shore and many persons perished either in the water or  on the vessel,.after she was beached.  Jt was estimated that the steamer carried more than 2000 "persons. The  General Slocum is the' largest excursion steamer in these waters. She  has plied for years to Rock away Beach  and could carry about 1000 passengers.  Soon aftor the first reports reached  police headquarters, a call was sent for  five ambulances, and inspectors were  sentout to take charge-of a detail of  harbor police,' which was ordered to  the scene.  The latest report is that at least 500  persons have been burned. Many,  were rescued by tugs and other vessels, which promptly came to the rescue when the Humes broke out. The  pastor of St. Mark's church, Rev. Geo.  C. E. Phass, was on board with his  family.  .*���������*. Jr. Jr. Jr. .*!*. Jr. J9. J*. Jr.  BROS.

TO SUCCEED  LORD MINTO  Earl Grey Determined Upon,  but His Appointment Will Not  Be Announced Until His Term  of Office Expires in October.  London, .Tune 11.���������It is announced  that Earl Grey, Lord-Lieutenant ol  Ireland, has been appointed to succeed the Earl of Minto as Governor-  General of Canada.  Earl Grey is a brother-in-law of  Lord Minto. ��������� Tho hitter's term docs  not expire until October, so the official  announcement of Earl Grey's appointment will not be made for some time.  Although the famous Baron Mini  chanson has long been gathered to his  fathers and his erstwhile Kootenay  representative has passed over the  Great Divide, the little town that  nestles under tho shadow of mount  Stephen; enjoys the proud distinction  of having amoiui its inhabitants one  who, although but a tyro in the art  descriptive, possesses qualifications,  which promise ere long to entitle him  to enrolment in the first class of story  tellers.    He writes as follows :  Golden may have ils blowouts,  Revelstoke its> Chinese fireworks,  Japan and Russia their deathly struggle, yet our burg still holds first place  in its methods of conducting charivari  entertainments, all disputants are requested to place their protests with  McPherson or McRae, but if they  decide to do so personally, I would  respectfully suggest that tliey leave  their measurement at Howson's. 0  We are thinking seriously of sending  a team to show you folks in Revelstoke  what* kind of players we have, as our  town boasts of some of the best baseball players on the continent and as  for lacrosse players if some of our  defense men could cut themselves up  into seveial parts the Shamrocks  themselves would havo hard lines to  hold the laurels.  Horse racing is strictly prohibited  owing to the crowded streets and  tbeieforc we take exercise in climbing  up 'mountains.  Tliere have been several bear hunting expeditions and as a result some  of our citizens have splendid furry  rugs in their houses. These hunting  patties attribute their success largely  to the expert advice furnished by that  veteran bear stalker, Andy-Patterson,  whose experiences would raise the hair  of a bald-headed Indian.  There are many other'items I would  like to Write about, but will continue  them in my next.  YOURS, ARGUS.  Albert Henry George Grey, L.LM.  .1.

Sudden Death.  ��������� Somerset,-Pa.,���������June_.U.=Ahner  McKinley, brother of tho late pi-esi-  dent, was found dead in a chair at  his home at 8 o'clock this morning.  His death came without warning to  his family. His colored-servant, who  slept in his room, wa������ up with him at  2 o'clock, and it is not known at what  time .Mi*. McKinley got up again as he  did not waken his servant. Mrs. McKinley walked into hi.s room at 8  o'clock and found him sitting in a  chair, cold and apparently dead. A  physician was summoned who said  death had probably occurred two or  three hours earlier.  Orange  Celebration  Tlie committee having charge of the  arrangements for the Orange celebration at Vernon informs lis that llic  train will leave at 0 o'clock on the  morning of the ]2th proceeding to  Sicainous where the 'contingents' 'r nn  Salmon Arm and Kamloops will bo  picked up, leaving there so as to reach  Vernon about 0:30 thus enabling those  who intend returning tlie same day  to have fourteen hour's enjoyment as  thehomeward bound is scheduled to  leave Vernon at 11:30 p. m. or more  explicitly 23,30. If there be any who  desire to prolong their stay they may  do so as all tickets will lie good for  three days.  I        Sports and Pastimes.  The recreation grounds are well  patronized every evening by enthusiasts at different games. In one corner  of the field a number of youths,: tnem-  bers of the seniors, intermediates arid  juniors, aro to bc seen diligently practising the national game. In the  centre Professor Jones is busy hitting  hot liners and wide rangers to candidates for the baseball team that expects to try conclusions with Kamloops  shortly. Near the fence, two poles  with a string attached to the top of  each, serves for the goal of the football kickers, but one-of the most  amusing features may be witnessed  near the farthest fence, where a crowd  of young Chinese boys 'practise lacrosse  in a way which would make an expert  of .tiie game liable to attack of  apoplexy.       ,  lacrosse   ,  In Vernon on June 22nd, the Revelstoke team will have an opportunity  of crossing sticks-with the Vernon  boys, when, it is tojje hoped they will  make a better showing than they did  in last year's game, when the score  was 5 to 0.  Arrangements have been made for -  two games in Nelson, July 1st and 2nd,  when the boys hope to give a good .  account of themselves, in which we  aie sure they.will not lie disappointed  if they put the same vim into their  practice games as was displayed Monday evening, when the whole team  was on the ground. Hyatt, Rennie  and Edwards on the defence are showing up well and the clever work of *  Latham and Saunders on the home vis  particularly noticeable. But in order  to make a good all round showing  there should bo constant full team  practice.  A spirited game of baseball was  played on the recreation grounds  Tuesday evening between a nine from  The Columbia Athletic Club and nine  of the city's fire fightei-s, and judging  by the excellent field work displayed  Prof. Jones feels quite confident that  the boys will demonstrate to. the'  Kamloopians on the"lst_of-July���������that���������  they 'are no mean antagonists. As  an evidence that Kamloops prowess is  recognized there will be full team  practice every evening (weather permitting) for the rest of the tnonth.-  The team which Pi of. Jones will  take to Kamloops irs tp ho selected  from the following: D. Calder, W.  Calder, Henry, Maunders, Palmer,  Sturdy, Knowlton, Caste, Moore,  Morgan, Grey, Ferguson and McDonald.  ���������Anything you want in the shape of  Printing, neatly done, good stationery  Place your next order with us.

Additional Fire Protection  The City fathers are proving to their  constituents that their promise to put  forth every effort to supply adequate  facilities for fighting fire was by no  means an empty one as an order has;'  already lieen placed for a 75,000 gallon  tank and this issue contains their  advertisement calling for tenders in  connection with the water system.  In addition to the above a proposition  has Wen submitted to the C.P.R.  asking their co-operation; in the  laudable object of protecting life and  property by building a tank of like  capacity to the city's both to be filled  by the waters of Bridge creek and  other available streams.  Dominion Day at Arrowhead  Arrangements are being made for a  big celebration at Arrowhead on July;  1st. The programme will consist  chiefly of aquatic sports, further particulars of which will be given in our  next issue.  ���������A\ I  i  i*  V  tf  T  I  +  i  CATCHING  A FLAT  ���������*->M fr  *  ^������������������H-W-WW*  Martha says I nm a fool.  Martha 13 welcome to her opinion;  thero are others who think ilitTciciit-  ly. But 1 will     not    boast.      The  l'lains never did, and they have dono  great  things  in their  time.  Martha says that 1 nm not capable of taking enre of money. I only  wish that Martha would "trust me  with more than half a sovereign a  week,  that's all.  Martha hns plenty of money���������Jive  thousand in Consols, eight thousand  fn various corporation stocks, and* a  half share in Allen and Darker. Tom  Allo_a was lier first husband, and tho  money i.s hers for life. Then it  goes lo nephews and nieces.  These 'nephews and nieces resent  my being Martha's husband, and insinuate that J. married her for hcr  money; or. as Job Allen, in his elegant way, *������ys, "/or a home." 'I'hey  quite ignore the fact tlrnt I was  Martha's first sweetheart, nnd that  she  threw rne over for Tom  Allen.  One morning last July Martha said  "Jonty" (my name is John Chcsncy  T31aiir)���������"Jooty" she said, "Archie  is coming over to stay with me for a  fow wc s. Now, remember what  I've  told  you  of him."  If all  was  true that Martha    had  said   about   her   brother   Archie,     he  was as great a villain  as there  was  to be found.     He novor had a friend j  or   acquaintanco    but     he borrowed  money from him   and    never repaid, j  Ho had    lived  under many names  in j  many towns.      And the more   places ' fJ������ods  he lived  in  the moro  bills  for  lodgings ho  left unpaid.      Ho had    never  pounds easily enough, Jonty. Trust  to mo."  That same evening he told mc that  Mortimer was on. "He's ns eager  ���������well, ns eager as flats usually arc.  Now, Jonty, not. a word to Martha  if you value my friendship. I've arranged with Mortimer that he shall  sec the picture at the Albion. You  slide it out without. Martha seeing  you, nrrd bo there at three. And Mr.  Guy Mortimer is ours."  So it fell out. After several unsuccessful attempts to smuggle the  picture out of tho house without  Martha seeing, I took a bold step  rrurl walked coolly downstairs with  it. under my arm. Martha met me  iu  the  hall.  "John Chcsncy Blairr," she said,  looking lirst at tha picture, then at  rne, "where are you taking that  picture ?"  "To tho restorer's," I replied,  adopting tho methods of brother Archie, "You know how cracked and  dirty it is dear. Now, tho restorer  will make it liko new for a few shillings."  I sard it all so glibly that she had  nothing to find fault with, and I got  safely awny to tho Albion.  Mortimer was a neat, smart-looking chap; not my idea of a flat nt  all. But Archie whispered, "He's all  right; we've got him."  "Mi'. Mortimer," said Archie, as  wo seated ourselves in a private  room,  "this    ia Mr.  Blain,  and   this j  tho  signature.      We must buy     the  picture back."  "Yes," I replied, with somo hesitation. Tho greater portion of my  twonty-fivo pounds had found its  way into Archie's pockets. Ho had  been showing mo some now card  games.  "How much havo you 1" he asked.  I reckoned up my assets to eight  pounds some shillings.  "Whow I" ho whistled. "That's a  had look-out. And I. parted with my  available balance yesterday; a pressing bill���������you understand. Hut let  us go over to Mortimer's. You can  see the signature, and we'll work  him again. Once a flat always a flat  you know."  We went over to Brortimor's. He  occupied two rather untidy rooms-  over a tobacconist's; but. ns Archie  explained to me, Mortimer wns only  in town for a week or so from his  placo in Yorkshiro. "Five'thou a  year. Keeps hunters. A bit eccentric. Thinks hc knows something  about pictures," wns whispered in  my ear ns wo wont upstairs.  Tlie picture was hung in a prominent position and had boon put into  a neat gilt frame, showing moro of  the painting. When Archie attracted Mortimer's attention for a few  minutes I gavo it a close scrutiny,  and there, dimly, but surely enough,  was thc signature my franio had covered.      I nodded to Archie.  Mr.  Mortimer,"  ho  began,   "sinco  he  saw you    last    my     friend,     Mr.  ..   , Blain,    has. had'a  small   windfall���������a  is.tho picture.

"I said to  him, 'But, Mr. Blain, a salo is a  sale.

I haven't  much to lend out of half a sovereign  a week.

Yet nothing moro than this  -was the primary source of three centuries ol war between Kngland and  France. In order to please the archbishop of Rouen, Louis VII. of  France consented to remove his beard  in* common with his subjects, and  present a clean shaven face to the  world. It was a disastrous shave,  far-it led to so much friction with  his-wife, who resented her husband's  changed appearance thnt at last the  king divorced her, to become a few  months later the wife of Henry II. of  England.

Your  clothes ore too heavy and though  you aro not sick, you nro too tired  to walk, too tired to work, yes, oven  too tired to eat.  It's that "spring feeling."  Do yen know thc cause of it? No,  nil you want to know is how to get  rid of lt. Well,- thc cxjilanation and  the curo are alike simple.      ,  In tho winter you "get used" to  the cold, you think. As a nyitter of  fact it is tho body that gets prepared. It puts on "a fortification of  extra tissue that,. keeps the cold out.  In the spring time this tissue is  thrown ��������� oil by the body arid if the  system is .all in good working order,  the .blood carries away the cast-off  tissue, which is in turn filtered 'out  of the blood by the Kidneys, and expelled from tho body.  This means extra work for tho Kidneys, and if they are at all tired or  worn they fall in their work. The  result is clogged circulation and that  tired spring feeling.

THE PROSPECTOR  AND PROSPECTS.  A recent   editorial   in  the Rossland  Miner calls attention to the complaints  of prospectors relative   to the difficulties ot interesting capitalists in good  prospects stating that  "if it were not  for the prospects yearly discovered in  the mining camps and districts of the  "West;  were it not for the fact that  many   of  these   are  able   to interest  capital in their development, aud were  it .not also a fact that of   these prospects so developed a certain number  are annually transformed into producing and paying mines, it would not be  many years before the metallic wealth  producers   of  this   country would become limited and their number lessened by exhaustion and   abandonment  until,   filially,   the    mining   industry  would die out  entirely.     A few men,  however,   even   though    they   be   in  rather       straitened       circumstances,  can join issues with their small capital  in tbe exploitation of a prospect;, and  if it is possessed of merit it will not be  long liefore   they  can   place it upon a  producing basis.    'Tall oaks from little  acorus grow." The same axiom applies  to   mining.     From a small producer  the prospect rapidly grows into a big  mine.     If it is worth 810,000 when it  begins its initial shipments it is worth  ten times this   much as development  ���������work progresses, and as the workings  Mock out more ore and room is made  so that more men can work in break-  AN OVERSHADOWING  ing down ore bodies for shipment arid  the market. A little later a miracle  has taken place. "'The S100.000 mine is  vorth half a million and capital is  tumbling over itself to get possession  of it- The transition from a prospect  into a bonanza is so rapid, so to speak,  that the owners are taken by surprise."  XVe have already touched upon this  question in previous issues of the  Herald yet feel that it is not out of  place to add to our contemporary's  remarks tbat the prospector i.s too  prone to waste energy on prospects at  ���������widely divergent locations instead of  concentrating his efforts in one district  until he has satisfied himself of the  futility of continuance, then and only  then do we deem it a good plan to  seek pastures new. To illustrate we  ���������will cite one instance of many that  have come under our observation. A  miner who had discovered a promising  prospect up Fish Creek did enough  assessment work to comply with the  law and then leaving his camp with  provisions, outfit, etc., started down  to Thompson's Landing where he  spent a couple of days with the necessary expenses incident thereto (and  some by the way which were not  necessary) any then came to Bevelstoke where after a  week's stay at a  cost of dollars he proceeded to the  Big Bend to do the assessment up  there. The moral to this story is  obvious and we deem further comment  superfluous.  Never had a political party in Canada  a better opportunity that the  Conservative party now has.    It is seldom  that the leaders of any party rise to  the occasion as Mr. R. L.  Borden  and  his lieutenants have done.    The result  of their sagacity, statesmanship and  courage is that the party throughout  the length and breadth of Canada is  placed in a 'position  where they can  uphold the principles and policy of the  party   without   any  reservation    or  excuses.   If there ever was any room  for difference of opinion���������and  we are  not saying there was not���������as to the  wisdom of the policy sis pursued in  years gone by, hy thc leaders of the  party, they must surely  be forgotten  when   such    a   momentous,   issue is  before the people as that involved in  the question of transportation,   This  great question that is now before us  overshadows   everything   else.     The  whole future well being of the nation  is wrapped up in it.     Before  it   must  fall the dead issues of the past. Before  it all personal ambitions must cease to  exist.    Nor should any local jealousies  or disputes which may exist in. any  part of our Dominion  be allowed  to  creep   in   to   usurp   the   pre-eminent  place which the great and all important   question    of    transportation   is  entitled   to.     The   party   is  given a  chance to   unite itself that it never  had before.   The party was defeated by  disruptiou over a grave issue.   It was  predicted at the time,  aud we   were  amongst those who predicted  it,  that  the Conservatives would only againjbe  united by a great question.   That time  has   now   come.    Mr.   R.  L.  Borden  evidently saw not only  the need of  Canada but of the party. He saw that a  great country like Canada required a  Thu Canadian  Parliament contains  131  Liberals,   but   out   of  this  large  number  the   Government   found    it  almost impossible to keep a quorum  (20 members) in the House during the  discussion of the Grand Trunk Pacific  contract.     It is  hard  to believe  the  statement in the face of the fact  that  the   deal   means  an   increase in  the  national debt of somo $150,000,000, but  so notorious has been the neglect on  the Liberal side of the House, that  on  one occasion Sir Wilfrid  Laurier was  forced to adjourn at six o'clock, owing  to   the   indifference  shown    by     his  followers to the expenditure  of such'  vast sums of the peoples' money.    The  party in power has reached a stage  when all thought of safeguarding  the  treasury seems   to liave   heen  abandoned.     The   broken pledges of tho  leaders   of   the   erstwhile economists  have come to be regarded   as licenses  to    squander   the   revenues   derived  from the greatly  increased  taxation  that has prevailed   in   Canada since  1890.   Among the supporters  of  the  Government  the   pledging   of  $150,-  000,000 is rather looked upon as sport,  and the men   who  arc  enjoying  the  fun   tell their friends that no matter  what the Liberals may  do,  they   will  have   the  support   of   the    electors.  With this belief firmly fixed in  their  minds, they abstain from  performing  their duties and allow things  to drift  along  in   any   way    their    political  bosses may decide upon.     The result  is inevitable.     When   the   vote   was  taken on the bill  to enable Sir Wilfrid Laurier to spend a sum   equal  to  50 per cent, of the national debt,   over  half of the supporters of the administration were not in a position   to give  an intelligent vote on tho   question.  Yet these are men who are in   possession of the country's funds and  who  declare that the people .are so easily  gulled that they will  permit the   outrage   to   continue.     The    exhibition  furnished   hy   Sir   Wilfrid   and     his  followers is enough to make one doubt  the    advantages     of    a   responsible  government.    If   the   men    who   are  sant   to   Parliament   to  support   the  Liberal   party   cannot  find   time   to  watch   the   progress   of   a    measure  involving an   outlay   of   $150,000,000,  they should  be left at home at the  earliest possible moment.  fJARVEY, M'CAUTES Ji PINKHAM  Barr;lRtersrSoli(!ltors, Eto.

He also saw that a party, such as the  Conservative party admittedly is,  could not be led successfully by the  advocacy of only minor politics or an  indulgence in criticism only. Realizing the necessities of the times his  courage has given to thc party a  policy round which the whole party  can once more unite. It is a national  policy in every sense of the term; a  great broad policy, a policy too big to  permit of any minor jealousies or past  dispute finding a place under it.  Air. Borden's policy has already had  the effect of stampeding the Liberals  into a state of hysterical fright. Their  weird ravings and foolish distortions  reveal their state of mind. They  realize the effect that a well chosen  policy, courageously advocated, will  have upon their fortunes.  The leaders of the Conservative  party have done their duty. It is now  the duty of the local leaders to do  theirs. It is necessary that the public  he instructed thoroughly in what Mr.  Borden's policy is. The campaign  now before us is more than ever  before one of education. From the  platform the work of instruction must  be carried on vigorously. It will not  do t.o rely solely upon the press  because so many see only the distorted  side presented by the Liberal papers  they take. There should, therefore, be  , no more time lost.

"Whilo  shepherds watched their flocks," sho  s������ng, hcr eyes clouded with tears,  nnd, looking up, she became aware  of the intent gaze of a lady in the  ?.f.-u-we!l     Court  pew���������a  gaze   -which  prince,  his  nioco fully  occupied  tvith  her ponies, who sniffed up tire frosty  nir      as    they      tosssed   their   pr*>nv  manes      and      made bolieve to  tako  every biiKh and stone lor' an c-rru......  They     drove     through   the    park,  the noble oaks    nnd beeches i the  visitors !"  she might well    exclaim,  on surveying herself in the glass.  Jessie was soon opening the door  to receivo tho guests; visitors very  rarely had occasion to ring at Redwoods. It was deemed inhospitable  not to go out to welcome them as  soon as they appeared in sight. Tho  sight of her caused Sir- Arthur to  remove his hat from his head and  himself from the low pony chaise,  and confirmed Miss Lonsdale in her  admiration. Tho touch of tho tin-  gnllant frost, which does not hesitate to nip thc nose of rarest  beauty, only brought a delicate rose  to Jessie's cheeks, tho sunshine fell  full in hnr fuco, causing her to lift  ono slender hand to shade her beautiful eyes, whilo with the other sho  held o. light blue wrapper, one end  of which was thrown over her head,  beneath hei* chin; her bright liuir,  true "chiome d'or nil" aura  Tasso, glittered  whero        -      _ _...-.     ���������                 bore    fairy-like foliage of honr-frost   spnrso" so dear to  instead of    green   summer   lenvos on   in  tiny  ruffled  rings  about tier  tcm-  tho      line    tracery    of  their  boughs, | pies,  as  if each  separate hair    wero  which sparkled with delicate     jewel-. iv beam of light.

They coon came to a  comfortable farm-house standing a  lil tie way back from, the road in a  trim flower-garden, fenced by a low  stone wall over which the dainty little,"roving sn<ilor" spread its shinning trails, and yellow stone-crop  and patches of green and gold moss  tall and slim, in her plain black  dress, while some white pigeons,  startled by thc wheels, flew up with  clanging wings    and settled    on  tho  church in the foreground all firmly  and truly sketched. "From nature  in winter, too I You have a good  deal of feeling for landscape,- Miss  Meade."  Jessie had persuaded I'hilip, who  recognized her decided talent to let  her exchange Miss Blushford's fino  pencil drawings ' and water-color  flowers and fruit for lessons from a  broken-down artist, whose constant  potations had not been able to  quench a spark of genius whicli  might have brought him to tho  front rank, and under this man she  had made some progress arrd learnt  to cherish great hopes.

Sho could  scarcely believe that Miss Monde had  seen nothing and yet painted. so  charmingly.'  While they were standing thus at  the easel. Cousin Jane, her curls  beautifully arranged in glossy bundles on either check, with a cap five  grades higher than that of tho  cheese-brushing, and her afternoon  gown and   apron    on,    came in and  wa.s repeated and interrupted by tho  {-"ft*: . ??c f'������"se wa9 ot sn?i������to11?'  raising of Jesnie's eyes several times   h������lf ������������dden , by creepers, which     in  h J summer made a very bower of bloom  the tiled roof waa richly embroidered  by yellow lichen, that caught and  l>?opt the sunshine in reserve so as to  throw a golden glow over gloomy  days; the warm brpwn tiles roofed  the barns and other buildings in tho  yard, and were similarly embroidered  by nature's hand; the pale yellow  stacks beneath a group of elms in  the   rick-yard    glowed in  tho frosty  ng nf Jesties ey  during the sermon.  "Whatever made Miss Lonsdale  look our way like that ?" Cousin  Jane asked, at dinner. "There was  nothing wrong with my bonnet, Jessie, was there ? I am sure yourn  was as i;cat as a. new pin.

And  I'm sure my mourning is deep  enough  for a  sister."  itiss Lonsdale was at tho same  moment askirg Lady Gertrude who  "t1 at charming girl in mourning"  with the . Plummcr's was, and how a?  creature so graceful came among  such  rustics.  "Charmirg girl ? Graceful creature?  Pathetic ? Refined ?" murmured Lady  Ge trude, bewildered. "I saw no  stranger,  Clara,  and I  usually  round  tho church; one owes it to the  peorle.  "Clara    has      discovered  procrigy/'   said    her     cousin  Medway. "Be     merciful,  Leave   the   rose    to    wither  stem."  * Vou probably mean little  Meade, the miller's daughter*," Sir  A thur added. "You must often  have seen her before, Clara.' She .is  ceitainly growing into a very nice-  lcokirg girl. But the refinement  soon wears off in that class."  This spee.h put Miss- Lonsdale on  her mettle. "Do not imagine," she  replied, "that our class lias the  monopoly of .; everything. Uncle Arthur. That sweet girl~ at no age  could be anything but refined.

"Jessie," sho added,  mufirgly, "a.caressing, sort of'name;  soft but not'sufficiently dignified for  her."  A few days later Sir Arthur lamented in her hearing that, what  with one thing and another, he had  not a horse fit to ride that morning,  and supposed he rn'isw walk. Rod-  ���������.roods was not so wry far, but he  wished also to call at Ferndale and  Little Harwell.  "Why, not let me drive you?"  Clara said; "the ponies want exercise, and I like an obioct for a  drive.  when he was gone Jessie wont    out  to ask Miss Lonsdale to-come in.  She assented with a smile. and  laying the reins aside, alighted.  Tall, well made, warmly clad in rich  furs, with the jewel-like breast of a  bird glowing iridescent in her hat,  with that indefinable air of one daily  used to polished human intercourse  and the constant homage due to an  absolute grace of speech and movement���������Clara Lonsdale seemed to  Jessie, who rarely saw but homely,  often uncouth people, a being from  a more gracious sphere, nnd hcr  clear glance fell with a becoming  deference hefore the penetrating gaze  of the  lady's  golden-brown  eyes.  "Not Mrs. Plummcr's daughter, I  am sure," she said, in a voice naturally musical, but the more so because of a softer uccent than that to  which  Jessie tvas used.  "No,"; sho replied, opening the  door for Miss Lonsdale to pass in,  "I am Mrs, Plummcr's cousin, Jessie  Meade.''  She led her inlo a largo, low  room with heavy furniture, and two  fair-sized casement windows with  deep cushioned scats.

PEAS AND OATS TOGETHER.  Peas nnd oats make a grand soiling food for milch cows when .grown  in duo balance and a rich land, says  Professor Thos. Shaw, of Minnesota.  This crop may be sowed on almost  any kind of land that is rich, and  well prepared nrrd moist, and it comes  anywhere in the rotation. The small  variety of peas are moro suitable than  the marrow-fat varieties, as they produce fino straw, making them more  palatable. The weak point about  this food for soiling purposes is thc  short period during whicli it can  be fed green. This period will not  usually, extend beyond three or four  weeks from ono sowing, but It may  be extended by having another plot  sown two or three weeks later than  the first.  Tips crop may usually be best sown  on fall plowed land, rich naturally,,  or made so, and sown as early as  tillage is practicably in the Spring;1  Tho modes of sowing will vary with  ithe conditions. In many canes the  seed may best be sown with the grain  drill nfter the peas and oats have  been mixod. On reasonably stiff clay  this method of sowing will answer  well.  In othor situations, as on prairie  soils somewhat weedy, it has been  found best to scatter the peas over  the ground whilo yet unplowed, nnd  then to . plow in four to five inches  eop and in rather narrow burrow slices to prevent the seed from growing  in rows to distend from another.  The oats should then be sown just  before    the      peas  come  through  the  eyes and broad forehead, with moderate short head. and short, . thick  neck', a well-sprung rib, strong loins  and a long, level rump.  The whole animal should be smooth  and evenly covered 0with thick flesh.  A moderately large paunch on' a  healthy, vigorous steer should, be  regarded as a desirable indication.  Moderately fine bones is also an indication of a good feeding quality.  On the contrary, a coarse bono  with long body, large head and general appearance of coarseness is always to bo considered-, an undesirable  characteristic.  Cattle possessing .the desirable characteristics mentioned above will fatten more quickly and will distribute  their flesh on thoso portions of tho  body where the highest-priced cuts  arc located.  It is impossible here to give all  the information one will neod in applying these principles.  WATER FOR SHEEP.

Sleep for a    Week*1 or Two     With.  Occasional Waking Moments  for Nourishment.  Sleep is being recognized at last'  as a cure. For nervous troubles it is-  highly recommended, and in London  patients are encouraged to sleep for  weeks nt a time, with waking moments for eating and drinking.  Neurusthenia, epilepsy and dipsomania have responded very readily *to  tho treatment, and somo marvellous-  cures nro related at one of tho largest of thc sleep cure establishments.  A Swedish doctor is tho in von tor of  the cure, and the patient taking'hi**-  treatment is : obliged to put himself  completely in the hands of thc physician, who allows no deviation from-  the contract.

It was begun in 1870  and finished in 1870, and additional  work has since been done on it.  Commencing in Callao, it ascends  tho narrow valley of the l~.im.ac, rising nearly 5,000 feet in tho first  forty-six miles.  Thence - it goes through the intri-  cutting more nearly than when sown  at the same timo, and the oats are  less likely to overshadow the peas.  It would not be possible to name  the proportions of seed to be sown  that would best suit all soil conditions, as they vary greatly. Where  peas grow better a less quantity  should be sown. The proportions  that are exactly suitable for any locality can onlv be ascertained by actual tests. The idea should be kept  prominent /that tho peas aro the more  15,645 feet, thc highest point in tho  world where a. piston rod is moved  try steam. Tho wonder is doubled  on remembering that the elevation  is reached in seventy-eight miles.

The proportion of oats that will sustain tlie peas from falling-will be  enough.  Usually not less than two and a  half bushels per acre should be sown  of the mixture. Ordinary not more  than one-third * should bo oats. On  some prairie soils one peck of oats  Cer aero should suffice. On other  soils it may bo necessary to increase  the oats until they furnish by measure nearly half the seed used.   '  This food is exactly for milk production. From 15 tp 20 tons per  acre may lie taken of tho mixture,  and it may bc followed in many seasons by. a catch crop on tho same  ground more especially of rape. The  cutting may begin as soon as the  peas come into bloom und may continue until tho. crop is nearly rige.  Tlie dwarf Essex rape crop is  more frequently grown for pasture  than for soiling food, and yet it is  an excellent soiling food for milch  cows. Some will not except this  statement on the ground that.it will  taint the milk. That depends on how  it is fed. If fed to cows just after  the milk has been withdrawn it may  bo given twice a day, and in considerable quantities. But it would be  impossible to feed so much even in  the manner indicated above, that the  system would become so saturated as  to produce taint. But this certainly  will not follow from modern' feeding.  When it can be done, tho ideal way  would be to feed rape as a soiling  food one end of the clay and sonic  othor kind of soiling the other end of  the day.  Dwarf Essex rape may bo sown  on nny kind of rich moist soil of  reasonable-open-- texture- ���������Deep-hu-  biiih soils, as for inntancc, slough'  soils grow it in greatest perfection.  It. would scarcely bo possible to make  land too rich for the growing of  rape, antl the yields arc usually in  proportion to the richness and cleanness of the soils. Early crops are  best sowed on Fall plowed land.  warm tho water above the freezing  point a good deal, to about the normal temperature of spring water.  They need water most in dry summer, but when the grass is fresh and  growing well, less is required. You  might as woll expect your daily cows  to produce milk, some sevonty or  eighty per cent, of water, as to expect your breeding ewes to raise  lambs that arc drinking milk on grass  alono. In winter when they arc eating dry feed more water is taken  than when they are supplied with  roots and silage. Ordinary a sheep  should have from 1 to 6 guarts of  w,ater daily, accordingly to water and  feed.  There is no placo in which will take  water with morc zest than in a shed.  In such a Rlace the water does not  freeze nearly so readily as outside.  A shallow trough is best and in very  cold, weather, if the water is not  wonted after tho sheep drink it may  be drawn off to prevent the accumulation of ice. It is a mistake to try  to water them in the same trough in  which cattle drink.   *.   ENGULFED IN THE SEA.  Innumerable, Fortunes Waiting for  You.  Many people have heard of the  search made by Greek divers under  the Turkish Government, and the  treasure discovered iu tho Russian  admiral's ship, sunk at Tcherman at  the time of thc naval battle of 1770,  when the Turkish fleet was completely destroyed.  The. search has continued "with  striking success. These fortunate  divers have become rich, but tho  Turkish Government also has obtained some large amounts, inasmuch as. it has- reserved for' .itself  the lion's share.  It already has been annouend that  on the first shipment to Constantinople the divers obtained for their  port the sum-of 270,000 f runes. The  daily .work of .the divers amounts to  from 5,000 to 10,00t>'pieces of gold.  A special boat of the Admiralty,  manned by officers af tho * Turkish  Navv and ~by a Government inspector, is stationed continually ,at tlys  point. Each sack drawn from the  water is registered, tlie pieces counted, ' and a receipt given to' tho divers.    _  It would be difficult to give " even  a summary of the innumerable fortunes cngulfed'*in the sea.

"*  THE MAIN DIFFICDI/TY  which doctors meet ln their treatment of nerve ��������� troubles is the refusal.  of tho patient to leave the surrounding causes of the excitable condition.  Thc brain-fagged merchant cannot  expect to find relief from insomnia  and its attendant ills if he remain*  within sound of the telephone bell  and the ticker.  In cities where tlie noises of streot  cars, elevated trains, ambulances and  fire engines arc constant a nerve cure  is almost impossible. For this rea- -  son patients suffering from this form  of diseaso are always sent away on  ocean voyages or to the country,  where their ears will not be assailed'  by a constant din.  But even under these circumstances  sleep is often impossible, and the  drugs resorted to are in most cases  worso than the cure. . Frequently the  very simplest and most old fashioned  remedy proves effectual. Massage .is  now recognized as a valuable aid in  the cure of insomnia, and when taken  with light gymnastic exorcises and  cold showers very obstinate cases are  cured.  "The sleep fad is one form of the  rest cure," said a physician who advocates-the cold water cure for nervous diseases. "The, principal difficulty in dealing with troubles of thia  sort is encountered in tho mind ol  tho patient,-which dwells constantly  ���������   *     -   ON HIS  CONDITION.-  "Tho various remedies that pro'**",,  efficacious in so many instances '?���������*���������  so not so much on account of thctr  inherent virtues as from the fact that  they remove the mental strain.

But he  could not take' a business man by  the shoulder, and say to him: "Invito me to your house. I am lonely.  I want to know people."  As he was now walking through  the park, and away from the busy  streot, he took off his hat and ran  his fingers through his grizzled hair.  He thought of a girl he knew once,  ' who, perhaps, would havo married  him if ho had asked her, as he was  templed to do.  Yes, that was a. long time ago.  .Suddenly auother girl arose beforo  his mental vision���������a modorn girl,  very different indeed from the one  of whom  he had been thinking.  She was the only woman in tho  world with whom he wns on speaking terms, and he knew her merely  bocausp her light and nimble fingers  played tl e business sonata of one  nolo on his oflice typewriter. Miss  ���������Shaw w,is pretty, of course���������ell  typewriter girls are���������and it was generally understood in thc office that  she belonged to a good family who  had co.ire down in the world.  Robert Furnival sat down rrpon a  park bench. "Why not?*', he asked  himself.  Next day business went on as ttsu-  ,al. , Letters wore answered, and tho  time arrived when Miss Shaw came  in .to see if he had any further com-'  mands that day. --  Mr. Furnival hesitnted. Hc felt  ��������� vaguely that a business office was  not the proper place for a proposal.  yet ho. knew hc would bo at a drs-  advan��������� age anywhere e'se.  It must .bo either at liis'oflico or  nowhere.   -      ;    "  "Sit down a moment. Miss Shaw,"  ho said at last. "I wanted to consult you aborrt a matter���������about a  business matter." . ' .  -.  Miss Shaw" seated herself. Furnival, in an embarrassed manner, ran  his fingers through his hair.  "I am thinking," ho began, "of  -tal-ing a partner. The business is  very pros, erous now���������in fact, it has  boen so for somo time."  "Yes?" said Miss .Shaw.  "Yes. I think I should have a  partner. It is about that I wanted  to speak to you."  "Don't you think it would be better to corsult Mr. Dixon? Ho  "knows more about tho business thnn  I. But perhaps it is Mr. Dixbn who  is to bo Clio partner?"  "No, it is not Dixon. Dixon is a  good man, but it is not Dixon. I  have made up my mind to have a  partner,  if thc partner is willing."  Furnival mopped his brow. It wns  geing to bo "even more difficult than  ho .had anticipated.  "Cannot you decide how much  capital the partner is to bring in?"  asked Miss Shaw.  "No, no.    I don't need any capital.  I have enough for both."  The   young   lady   raised   her     eye-  _Jurows_in_ surprise. = =.- =.   "I'm afraid I don't understand,"  she snid. "It seems to mo a foolish  thing to do���������that is, if you want my  advire."  "Oh. yes, I want it; but it isn't so  foolish as you think. T should have  hnd a partner long ago. Thai is  whore I mado n mistake. I'vo mudo  up my mind on-that."  "Then T don't see that 'I can be of  any use���������if your mind is already  made up."  "Oh, yes, you can! I'm a littlo  afraid that my offer may not be accepted."  "It is sure to be, if the man has  any sense. No fear of such un offer  being refuse!. Offers liko that aro  not to bo had overy day. It will bo  accepted."  "Do you really think so, Miss  Shaw? I nm glad that is your  opi-ion. Now, what I wanted- to  consult you about is tlie form of tho  offer.- T would liko to prrt it���������well,  delicately, you know, so that it  would not give offence if not acceptable."  "I see: You want me to write a  letter to him?"  "Exactly��������� exactly!" cried Furniviil,  with somo relief.  He had not thought of sending a  letter beforo. Tt was evidently the  best wny oul of a sitiintion that wris  <jxlfcnrely disconcerting.  "Have you     spoken   to   him  nbout  il?"  "To him?-  What hirrr?"  "To your future partner'."  "NTo.  rro!     Thai is.   lo nobody  you  "And  spenk  write?"  "Quilo  ness."  "Oh,   vory well!"  said  Miss  Shmv  'bending ovor hur writing-pad,", ''"  . It "was evident that her opinion ot  Furnival's wisdom was steadily lowering.

"I���������I don't think I would mention  that. You see, I don't, wish this  arrangement to bo carried out on a  monetary basis."  "On what basis, then?"  "Well, I can hardly say. On a  personal basis, perhaps. I rather  hope that tho person���������that my partner���������would, you know, liko to be associated with me."  "On a friendly basis, do you  mean?"  "Certainly. Perhaps more than  that."  Miss Shaw looked up at him, puzzled.  "Why  not      writo  a  noVo  inviting  your future partner to call upon you  here,   and  then  discuss  the  matter?"  Furnival looked frightened.  "I      thought     of     that,      but     it  wouldn't  do.     I  would  much   rather  settle everything by correspondence."  "I  am. afraid I shall  not  lie    able  to compose a  letter      that will suit  you.     It is very unusual."  "That is true', and that is why I  knew no one but yon could help mo,  Miss Shaw. If it pleases you, it will  please me."  Miss Shaw shook her head; but after a few moments sho said:  "How  will this do?  " 'Dear  Sir ' "  "Wait a moment!" criod Mr. Furnival. "That seems rather a formal  opening, doesn't it? How would it  read if you put 'Dear Friend?' " -  "If you wish it so.:' Sho crossed  out the ���������'Sir," and substituted the  word suggested. Then she read the  letter:  " 'Dear Friend,���������I havo for some  time past been desirous of taking a  partner, and would be glad if you  would consider tho question and consent to join mo in this busines. The  business is, and has boon for several years, very prosperous; and, as  1 shall require no capital from you,  I  think you will find my offer a very  advantageous one.

"It reads an if I  wero offering everything, and that  jny partner���������well, you seo what I  mean."  "It's the truth," said Miss Shaw.  "Buttor put it on a friendly basis,  as you suggested a moment ago."  "I didn't suggest anything, Mr.  Furnival. Torhaps it would be bettor if you would dictate the letter  exactly as you want it. I knew I  could not write one thai would  please you."  "'It does please me, but I'm think-  ing'of my future partner.

"Anything else,  Mr.  Furnival?"  -   "N'o.        I  think *   that covors  the  whole ground."  Then "Miss Shaw retired. Tho rapid click of tho typewriter- was heard  for a few moments .in tho ftext'room.  and soon she came out with the  completed letter in lrjr hand.  "Shall I have the boy copy it?"  she asked.  "Oh, bless you, no!" answered Mr.  Furnival. ..  The girl said to herself:  "He doesn't want Mr. Dixon to  know, and no wonder. It is almost  unbusinots-liko proposal."- Then slro  said uloud: "Shall you want me  again lo-duy?" ,  "So, Miss Shaw; and thank you,  very much."  Next morning Miss Shaw came into Mr. Furnival's oflico with a smile  on her  face.  "You made a funny mistake last  night, Mr: Furnival," sho snid.  "Did I?" he nsked. in alarm.  "Yes. You sent that letter to my  address. I got it this morning.. I  thought, before I read it that perhaps  you did not need me to-day. But I  saw  at once that you  put  it in  tho  .wrong_cnvelope. Did_ you_want iuej  to-day?"  lt was on his" tongue to say: "I  want you every day," but he merely  hold out his hand for t'ho letter, and  looked ns if he could not nccount for  its having gone astray.  The noxt day Miss Shaw camo Into  and sho looked frightened. It was  ovidont that Furnival Was losing his  mind. She put the letter down before film, and said:  "Yon addressed that to mo the  scond time, Mr. Furnival."  There wus a look of haggard anxiety about Furnival. He fell that  it was  now or never.  '"Then  why don't  you  answer    it.  Miss Shnw?" he said gruffly.  She backed away from him.  "Certainly!     If      I. got      a  letter  twlco I would answer il."  "Whnt do you mean?" she criod.  "Exactly what tho letter says.     I  want you for my partner.    I want to  marry  you.   and���������financial  considerations "  "Oh!" criod Miss Shaw. Sho fled  to her type-writing room, closing the  door behind  her.  itobcrl Furnival paced up nnd down  lho floor for a fow moments, then  rapped lightly at her door; but there  was no response.

ANIMALS DIED OF BRIEF  DOGS ARE MORE  FAITHFUL  THAN HUMAN BEINGS.  Some Have Pined to  Death   After  the Loss of Their Beloved  Master.  It is often said that animals have  proved themselves times without  number to bo quite as faithful ii not  more so than human beings, and  that tliis is so has been borne out  by fa.ts; for, though it is comparatively seldom that one hoars of anyr  body dying of a broken heart, ~ there  aro many instances of animals that  havo pined vto death after the loss of  a beloved master, and that have  given their lives for others.  Both dogs and horses are capable  of the most devoted affection; the  story of Glenclower's faithful dog,  who defended his master's child from  wolves during his absence and was  killed by him under a misapprehension, has been familiar to us all  from childhood. Less well known,  however, is the story of a wnler-  spaniel belonging to a French magistrate during the Revolution who, being suspected-of Royalist sympathies,  was imprisoned and condemned to  death. His dog accompanied him to  the Bastile, but was not allowed to  enter. Day after day the devoted  animal took up his position outside  the prison door in the vain hope of  seeing his master, till at last the  gaoler's heart was touched, and he  took the dog into the cell for a few  minutes.  Tn future, each day at precisely thc  same hour the spaniel put in an appearance, and after spending some  moments licking the prisoner's hand  ho would leave of his own accord.  The poor dog wus present at his  master's execution, walked .by .the  sido of his body as it was takon to  the grave,' and laid himself down,on  tho spot.'. After two or three' days  somo neighbors, finding out where he'  was, forced", him to eat some food  and took him away to their home,  but" he  RETURNED TO THK GRAVE,  and, though he would go to these  frioncJs for food daily, novor remained" away longer -than was, necessary.  Bul at last he became too weak to  fetch his food, and declined to* cal  whon it was brought to him, and his  last- hours were spont scratching up  tho earth, that in dy.ing he might be  nearer his beloved master.  Another dog that would not leave  his master was that belonging to.  Sabinus, the Roman general, who  was an adheront _ of lho Gernianicus  family. After his execution his body  was placed at the edge of a precipice  as a warning- to rebels, and nobody  but his dog had the courage to approach il. For -three days the noble  animal kept watch by tho corpse,  food was brought to him, but instead of eating it he placed it on thc  dead man's mouth. When tho body  of Sabinus was subsequently thrown  into tho Tiber the dog sprang after-  it into the river, and perished in his  attempts to keep it above water.  One has often heard of horses that  have refused to leave their master's  who have been killed in battle, but  there is only one instance on record  of a horse that caused tho death of  its owner's opponent. After Antio-  chus was slain by Centaretus the Ga-  latian, the latter jumped triumphantly���������in lo_.tlio__saddIe_of hi.s fallen foo's  steed. But the animal, as if understanding who was on its back, rushed to a precipice und,-in spile of all  efforts to restrain it, leaped with  its rider over the edge, and both,  of course,  wore  CnU.SH.KD TO DKATll.  A more modern story is that attaching to the charger of Colonel  Varidelour, the oflicer who was killed  at Laswarri when in command of the  8th Hussars. When lhe regiment  was ordered back to England, Black  Hob was sold to a civilian at Cawn-  pore, but the soldiers who had purchased it when their colonel died  returned the buyer half his money on  his promising that Black Dob should  always have a good stable, a snug  paddock, and no work in hi.s old age.  As the regiment was inarching away  to embark, playing a familiar tune,  the horse who for so long' had been  its pride kicked his stall to pieces I  and galloped to the barracks, only  to fall dead just'at the saluting  poirrt.  A dolphin seems an unlikely animal lo credit wilh great affection for  a human being, but a story regarding  orro has been handed down since the  time, of Augustus Cuesnr. As some  boys wero, bathing at Baioc. one of  their number seeing a young dolphin  near the shore nro un Led its back, at  which the r rent uro manifested great  celigl'.l. f-'o daily the boy came down  to tin! beach to play Willi his strange  companion, which Iro mimed Sinro,  aud ihihi be found that instead of it  lung walk round rhe. shore to 1'irt-  eoli, where he attended school, bo  had , nlv to call Siiun, when the animal would lower his prickly fins, and  the boy. .mounting his fishy steed,  Wits quickly'conveyed-  ACROSS Till*"  BAY.  This companionship  lasted for sev  eral years, but one day, as the two  were playing together, tho sharp fin  of the dolphin pierced the boy's side,  and he bled to death soon after  reaching tho shore. It is said that  the dolphin foil down by the lifeless body and died in-less than an  hour afterwards, it is supposed, of  grief. At any rate the child was  buried with his faithful friend beside hrm.  Tlie devotion.of almost every kind  of animal to its young is proverbial,  but sometimes tbe position is reversed, as in the caso of an old horse  irr a French cavalry regiment thnt  was too feeble to grind its oats  properly. For over- two months tliu  horses each side of it used to take  the hay from the rack and chew it  well before placing it within reach  of the old animal, and they performed the same kind office with its  onts; aird nol very long ago we  hoard of a gardener who, digging  one     day,      found      two  very  large  rubbish- Watching'them, to liis astonishment be saw the larger of the  two climb on the back of tho other,  which nt once began to move away,  and. looking more closely, ho found  ho had cut tho side of one with his  spade, and its companion was bearing it away to a place of safety.  ^ -m-   -m-  ^^    ������   ��������� u.

Result of Color Experiments Conducted in China.  -The Berlin Post reports that the  experiments, in China which have  been conducted by tlio Prussian Office  in regard to the color of German uniforms have resulted . in restraining  the army administration from introducing a grayish green instead of  the color hitherto used in Germany.  The report of the War Oificc contains  the   following :���������  "It has often been noticed during I  field exercises that the gray winter'  uniforms of our troojis could not be  distinguished at long distances from  the blue clothes of thc Chinese, who  were always present as spectators.  In order to ascertain which color was  the least distinguishable from tho  country surrounding a column was  composed, the first section of which  woro gray winter clothes, the second  old blue shirt coats and black cloth  trousers, the third khaki, the fourth  overcoats, and thc fifth canvas. The  column wns placed in closo formation behind * bushes without foliage.  "At a distance of about 1,4.00  yards the result was . as follows :  The gray overcoat section appeared  like uniform dark sipots, whilo tho  khaki and canvas sections wore  hardly distinguishable.

Question Whether Passengers    Are  Ansdous  to  Have  Trip  Shortened.  The figures which have been published of the number of first-class  passengers travelling by some of the  best krrowri Atlantic liners in tho  course of this summer, raise tho  question whether vessels of 23-knot  speed are more profitable than vessels of large tonnage with only 1S-  knot speed, lt would appear from  the statistics as to the passengers  carried by tho fast steamers of the  German lines on the one hand and  the largest, but somewhat slower  steamers of the White Star Line, on  thc other hand, that the Whito Star  steamers carried quite as many first-  class passengers as the German ocean  racers, although the White Star  steamers took about eight days between New York and Liverpool, while  the four fastest German steamers  landed llieir passengers at Plymouth  in less than six days from New York.  Thc reason for tho preference of tho  White Star steamers is obvious. Till  within very recent times an Atlantic voyage at almost any season of  the year did nol leave very pleasant  memories to those who endured it. ,  It was an event to be got over as  quickly as possible, and th<- quicker  tho voyage the more passengers who  were able to pay first-class rates  were willing to pay for it; but tho  coming steamers of 20,000 tons and  upwards has changed all that. It  is now quite possible at almost any  season of tho year to cross the Atlantic in vessels drawing 30 feet and  upwards without feeling the slightest  movement of the vessel from tho  ocean waves: and, even in the stormy  month of February this year, tho  Celtic crossed from Queenstown to  New York having a full glass of water on the table of hor main cabin,  not a drop of which was spilt at the  END  OF TnE VOYAGE.  When comparison is made between  such a steamer as the Cedric and the  German steamer Kaiser II. it _is  found that, though both steamers  are over 20,000 tons and less than  21,000, the German steamer cost at  least twice the amount of tho White  Star steamer to build. The Gorman  steamer consumes about 650 tons of  coal a day. os compared with 2,*50  tons by the White Star boat. Tho  German     steamer     requires    almost  os     high  out  of a     strip  of writing ,  paper.     Till this in center hole, and   thrce t,mes ^  many. mcn.

Sir AVilliam Playfair, who-has recently died iu London, after having  been'for years ono of the leading  physicians of England, had a painful  but instructive experience early in his  practice.  A patient confided to hiin in the  courso of illness certain facts about  himself. Sir William mentioned thcm  to Lady Pluyfatr, his wife. She  passed them on to an intimate  friend, also a woman, and in the end  they became public property. The  patient     brought     suit for  damages. .  against  the physician,   and recovered Ipensating for the  lower  fares,  the enormous sum of sixty thousand  dollars.  The incident has been used hundreds of times by lecturers to medical students to point the danger of  violating professional confidence. It  might well have been taken to heart  by women also. Probably the wife  might better- remain in ignorance of  her husband's "professional secrets.  But she who, knowing thenr, uses  lhem to spice her conversation is  surely moro deserving of contempt  than the confiding husband.  The "I'll ne\cr tell" of n woman  was long regarded as n sort of permissible  joke���������everybody  urrdorstand-  tukc out Urn ruw starchy taster Acid  four level tablespoons of butler, one-  quai'lcr teaspoon of sail and a teaspoon of sugar.

Vie.-*,  a very large cargo Tl.e advantage-  is therefore in favor of the cheaper  White Star steamer, and therefore it  is evident that a vessel like the Cedric is much more profitable to her  owners than one of the fastest German steamers.  The position in regard to the fast  steamers on the Atlantic, with high  fares, now is very similar to that on  British railways thirty years ugo._  Then first-class trains at special fare's  were run on almost all the railways  of the United Kingdom; but railway-  directors after a time found that it  was more profitable to carry third-  class passengers by nil trains, the  larger     number  of pnssengcrs     com-  So  for a time it is likely to be on the  Atlantic. Steamers will be divided  into two classes, one comprising such  vessels as the Deu'lschland nrrd the  Kaiser Wilhelm II. and t'*c coming  fast boats of the Cunard line, tho  other class steamers of 20.000 and  upwards nnd of about eighteen knot**  speed���������and one need not be a prophet  to tell which class of vessel will  prove profitahle to her owners in tho  end.

Drops to Quick Death.
A special from Ymir to the Nelson
Daily News says that Frank Butler,
brakeman on the Spokane Falls &
Northern train, running between Nelson and Northport, was instantly killed
thi.s morning at a' point two iniles
from Ymir.
Shortly after passing the Porto Rico
lumber camp, Butler and Sid. Brown
left the baggage car with lhe intention
nf going to the front of the train so as
to be in readiness to uncouple a flat
ear at the Porto Rico Lumber Company's siding, Ymir. Adjoining the
baggage car was an empty self-dumping ore car. ancl to cross over this car
it-was necessary for the men to jump
down into it. They both landed safely
and proceeded to cross it. Butler was
in front, and no sooner had he put his
foot upon the trap door than it gave
way under him, precipitating hiin upon
the track, where the train passed over
hiin. cutting ancl crushing him to
Sid. Brown, who was within a few
seconds of him when he fell through
the trap door, which had heen insecure,
ly fastened, at once rushed back and
put on the air brakes, stopping the
train, hut loo late to save him.
The body waa picked up and taken
to Ymir, Butler came here three
months since from Spokane, where his
people reside.
