(Speeinl tu Tin: Herald )  Rossland, B. C��������� June 0.��������� Tlie  wearers of tho triune link are practi-  cully in possession of the city and have  been promised-immunity by the mayor  in liis address of welcome, marking  the opening of the Grand Lodge of  Oddfellows of British Columbia, which  took place at 11 o'clock Wednesday  morning. -The speech was witty, able  and courteous and the hearty applause  that Mayor Clute received upon taking  his seat showed conclusively the  appreciation of his auditors.  A fitting reply was delivered by  Grand Master E. C. Arthur, of Nelson,  who on behalf of the fraternity  thanked the citizens of Robsland for  their cordial reception so ably conveyed by their civic representative in  his speech.  The members of the Grand Lodge  reception committee are satisfied that  theirs is at least no sinecure. This  committee is composed of T. Embleton,  H. J. Raymer, Al. A. Henderson, Dr.  D. E. Kerr and H. S. Rickard.  As there were quite a goodly number  of repiesentatives who were attending  Grand Lodge for the first time the  G. L.''degree was conferred upon them  after which thc standing committees  were appointed. At 7.30 in the evening tlie adjourned session was proceeded with, election of officers for the  ensuing year being iu order the result  was as follows:  -Grand Master, T. F. Neelands,  Vancouver. ���������   -  Deputy Grand Master, D. E. Mackenzie, New Westminster.  Grand Warden, F. E. Simpson,  Cranbrook.  ���������-Grand Secretary, Fred Davey, '"Victoria."-' -.  Grand Treasurer. Thos. Embleton,  Rossland.  Grand Representative, H. B.- Gilmour, Vancouver.  The next session will probably be  hsld iu Vancouver.  [  Dynamite Outrage at Golden.  Word iviir received Monday niorning that .shortly after midnight the  jewelry store of XV. Alexander of  Golden had been completely destroyed  by dynamite and. that his stock was  scattered to the four winds of heaven.  So far the perpetrator of tho outrage  has not been found, it is surmised  however that it' was the act of burglars attempting to blow open the- safe  but being novices they made a bungle  of tlie job lis the facts above mentioned  clearly prove.

Clallam Wreck Damage Suit.  The first damage suit to result from  the wreck of the steamer Clallam,  owned and operated by the Alaska  Steamship Co., was .filed in Seattle  last Saturday.. It &r(lt;lij.e]y be followed shortly by a dozef������others.  The suit instituted js t4 claim for  ������50,000 damages. It* has'���������' been commenced by Mrs. Laura Smith and her  two children. She is the widow of  James J. Smith, assistant engineer of  the Clallam, who lost his life in the  disaster.  As the plaintiff to claim damages  must necessarily show fault upon the  part of the defendant company the  courts will now conduct a second investigation into the wreck of the  Clallam. In the present suit it is  claimed that the deadlights on the  starboard side of the steamer were in  such poor shape that it was impossible  to close them to shut out the-water.  It is also claimed that when the Clallam sailed from Seattle on her fatal  trip for Victoi ia her tiller was so loose  in ils fastenings that it could not be  held to bring the vessel head on to the  seas and as a consequence she wallowed in the trough of the waves and thus  brought aliout her destruction.  ���������Go to C.

Many  Injured���������Wholesale   Hanging  is Feared.  CitiPPr.E Creek, June 6.���������Twelve  men were killed and seven others  severely injured today by the explosion of an infernal machine at the  railway station 'at Independence.  Eleven men were' killed outright,  being blown to pieces" and one' died  later. All the killed'and wounded*  with the exception of two men of the  dead were miners! employed on the  night shift of the Findlay mine. The  infernal machine ..with which the  crime was committed consisted of a  quantity of dynamite, probably three  hundred pounds and a'loaded revolver  with a long fino steel .wire attached to  the trigger. The revolver was fastened so that the, pulling of the trigger  would not.draw it ;awa,y. The wire  ran from under thejjstation platform  to the cribbing of."- the Delmonico  property about 400 feet away where  its end was fastenedbto a rung of a  chair. " The dynamite was placed  close to .the muzzle of the revolver  which was dischaiged by the pulling  of the wire. The.^ball? from the revolver' and the resulting-, concussion  exploded the dynamited  Victor, Colo.,'June 6.���������Deadly rioting broke out in Victor to-day "during  a mass meeting to'discuss the murders  at Independence. Forty shots were  fired into a crowd in the street, one  man being shot dead and at least six  persons injured. A pitched battle is  looked for at any moment. There are'  5,000 men on the streets and the union  men are arming themselves., They  are thronging the streets making  threats.  Cripple Creek, June 6,���������Though  the strike of the "union'miners in the  Cripple Creek district, which began  Aug. 10, 1003, and which led to tl e  declaration of martial law in Telluride  county by Governor Peabody, is still  in effect, good order has been maintained for the last six months and  military rule has been suspended and  all troops withdrawn;  Charles H. Moyer, president of the  Federation, is in jail at Telluride,  which placo is under martial law, being  held as a military prisoner by Governor Peabody, who  charges   him   with  inciting insurrection and rebellion.   The strikers in the metalliferous  mines of .Colorado were ordered out by  the executive board of the Western  Federation of Miners for the purpose  of cutting off the ore supply of mills  and smelters at which an eight hour  do,y was refused to the employees.    ;  The local committee of the Western  Federation of Miners has given out the  following statement: ?     --���������??.  "No men who deserve to live would,  or could, approve the awful deed. The  fiends who' planned iind carried out  the devilish criifie should be detected  and punished to the full extent' of the  law. The crime must be unearthed'  and the perpetrators pun ished. The  committee and all local members of  the Federation are ready and willing  to assist in uncovering the guilty  ones." ;: ; -������������������;?'

Lynching is freely talked of and  almost every man is a walking arsonal.  The union stores are in charge of the  deputy sherilld. Wholesale arrests of  union men are to be made. Mounted  armed men haverbeen sent on a quick  march to the extreme southern and  northern ends of the district to guard  all avenues of escape of the union  miners who are to be arrested. Company "II" Colorado National Guard,  is under arms at the armory in the  city and will be called out should  there be any rioting.      -  The   Silver   Dollar���������Work  Proceed  at Once   if   the  Government  will   Provide   a  Wagon Road.  Mr. J. R. Bottorff,  president of   the  Elwood  Tinworkers   Miiiiiig"Co..   of  Elwood,  Ind.,  whoss company   owns!  the Silver Dollar,  Copper Dollar and J  Western   Star  groups   in this camp,"  arrived in" 'town  this week and stated  to a Miner man that it was the intention of his   company to install a compressor   plant   on   the   Silver   Dollar  group to facilitate development operations.  "But there is ono drawback" said  Mr. Bottorff, "that we cannot overcome until the government extends  assistance to us, and that is thi.s : The  Beatrice trail, as you know, practically  passes through the Silver Dollar, and  we want that trail widened and graded  so that a wagon can haul our compressor to the sito selected for it, a  distance of about 3-J miles from Camborne. ��������� That portion of the trail  leaving town will have to be rebuilt,  as the-present grade is far too steep  for a wagon road.  "Of course we don't expect the  government to do it all, but we would  like to see more assistance offered to  people who are coming in to open up  the country."  "Referring to the property," concluded Mr." Bottorff, "I may say that  we expect to strike the lead any day  now, and if surface indications are any  criterion, it will be a rich one, I intend staying here for a week or two,  and if the government sanctions the  widening of the Beatrice trail from  Camborne to our property, I shall go  east and rush machinery along so that  installation may be made as early as  possible."���������Camborne Miner.

Thursday last the members of the  Methodist Church gathered at the  resideiice of their beloved pastor Rev.  C. Ladner, who has worked so faithfully in the vineyard endearing himself  to all those who have made his acquaintance. It is eleven years since  -his first call to Revelstoke during  which time he has seen the growth of  the community frorii a struggling village to one of the most important  cities of the province with^a corresponding expansion of Methodism.  One of the most pleasant features,  although not without a touch of sadness was the presentation, made by  Mrs. Pettipiece, of a purse containing  $85, as a slight evidence of the esteem  of the congregation on his departure  for other fields coupled with the hope  that his lot may fall in happy places  and that'he may long be spared to propagate the teachings he has so faithfully inculcated whilst in our midst.  Mr. Ladner expressed his heartfelt  thanks for the many' kindnesses  received and was pleased that with the  energetic efforts of  thc congregation  the church had been freed of all dett  Refreshments were served during  the evening. Tiie Revelstoke band  was in attendance and discoursed  sweet music.

She did not look up.

ruthlessly into the yawning trunk. l>e-

the  open   doors  of  the  wardrobe,   the
empty  pegs  whera     her*     clothes  had
been.
"Vou  are going?"
"What else  enn I do?"     Her voice
trembled  slightly.
"You can���trust mc!"
"Trust you?     When you  refuse   me

She went on bundling ull Irer finery
into the trunk.
He came further into the room and
out her aside.
"Heavy articles first. You will

.She knelt, or rather huddled, on
:hc floor In mute misery, as he busied himself with harpacking, folding
skirts and piilfully depositing boot-
trees.
In  a   tew  minutes  hc  looked  round
with a brisk  inquiry:
"Is thot all?"
"Yes���thank  you."
"I mny strap it up then."
Thc lid of the trunk shut down with
a prolonged weak.
He net his knee against it and fastened tlie strap securely; She scrambled to her feet and took up her hat
from the dressing table. As she adjusted' it, the black feathers nodded
with n dismal effect above her suffering white face and hollow cyesr
teristic handwriting, and secured by
a great red splash of sealing-wax,
sealed with his own seal, a mailed
hand.
"Take it with you," he said scornfully. "When your curiosity grows
unbearable you may break tho seal

bo the end. You don't mistake me?
The symbol of a dead faith may

He opened thn door for her.
She put out an uncertain hand to
him, brrt it slid down untouched by
her side.
"You will not bid nro 'C'ood-bcy'?"
"No." hc said gravely; "it is you
who are bidding me 'Good-bye.' "
An hour later there was nothing
left her but to face her life without

USEFUL HINTS.
For Sore Throat.���Half a teaspoonful of chlorate of potash dissolved in

How to Tre.at a Sprain.���When a
sprain occurs lose no timo in attending to it, howovor trivial it may
appear. Ascertain whether there
has been a, fructure or dislocation. If
so send for a physician as soon      as
wash them in it. This treatment will
render them almost equal to new.
Turpentine will remove paint from
woollen or silk fabrics. Saturate tho
spots with spirits of turpentine, and
allow it to remain for a fow hours.
Rub tho cloth between the fingers,
and the paint will crumble off without injuring the goods.
Wash new glasses in cold wator for
the first time or two, and they will
be found to have a much clearer appearance than if0waslied  in hot.
To soften old putty apply to it a

Czar's Soldiers Apt to   Go Hungry
���The Japanese Marching
Order.
Tho war in the East is affording a
tost of tho transport and commissariat systems of ttussia and Japan.
By tho Hussian system an army
corps of 45,900' men is supposed to
be accompanied by 2,400 wagons.
When campaigning, the Russian
soldier is supposed to carry two
days' rations on his person. Tho regimental truins carry rations for each
man for two days longer, nnd the
divisional trains for ftVom two to
four days. Tt is reckoned that fresh
supplies should always be obtainable
from tho surrounding country or
along tho line of communications
within the six or eight days allowed.
Tho system is a good one, but
the transport and commissariat broke
down miserably in every important
war waged by Russia during the last
century. The experience of tho past
indicates that tho Cossacks are lho
only Russian soldiers who are mobile and well fed in a cumpaign. They
are mobile because they always have
j large numbers of spare horses���often
two for each man; they arc well fed
because of their skill in : foraging.
Russian officers spend freely out
of their private funds during i* campaign in order to romedy the defects
ot the official transport and commissariat. They have been , obliged to
do so oven: during manoeuvres.
Tho example was set by Skobeleff,
Russia's greatest General of modern
times, during
THE HUSSO-TURKISH WAR.
He was a rich man, and every'rubble
hc owned was at the disposal of his
beloved soldiers when thoy needed it.
All      the officio]     arrangements  for.
feeding the men and caring for     tho ,f������;��������� ���, ,-,
Instead of using Heavy wagons liable to be bogged or to tire out the
horses, the Japanese had a great
number of light lidnd carts. These
carts were drawn by coolies or by
tho soldiers themselves, and they
wero so lightly laden that they interfered little, if at all, with tlio mobility of tlio force.
Tho horse and mule carts were of
the smallest type and lightly built.
Spare animals wore made to carry
thoir own fodder, and that of the
other animals as woll.
Those measures wero rendered necessary by the smallncss ond weakness
of tho Japanese horses, which arc
nbout tho scrawniest animals of their
kind. The Russians, on tho contrary, aro well supplied with large,
strong,
WELL-BRED HORSES.
Jn tho Turcoman campaigns in Central Asia camels wero employed, but
thoy nro hardly over usecr-to^dny by
Russian troops. Thousands of dogs
aro pressed into service, mainly for
transporting soldiers and supplies in
sledges across Lake Baikal.
In tho present campaign the Mikado's fighting man is carrying a great
deal more food with him thun his
Russian adversary. Against the lat-
ter's two days' rations he carries two
cooked rations of rico in addition to
six emergency rations. Theso are
contained in an aluminum moss pan,
nnd as the rico has boon boiled and
dried in tho sun, the entire weight is
trilling.
It is commonly supposed that the
J,npancso soldier lives on rice and
dried fish, Lut such is hot the fact.
TTeccnn live, and fight well, on that
spare diet, if. necessary; but he is
given moat and . other sustaining
foods whenever practicable, as* well
as beer or saki.
Several years ago a military commission was appointed by the Mikado to ascertain, why. the .physique' of
the r Japanese troops was inferior to
that of the British, Gorman and other countries. The commission came
to  tho conclusion that beef and bcor

Iy, and Skobeleff w.as always putting
his hand in his pocket through that
campaign. On one occasion he spent
15,000 rubbles to charter a steamer
to tako; a number of wounded men
to Odessa for treatment. He never
recovered from the Government the
largo sums ho expended.
'"When'. SkobolelT waa praised for his
generosity toward hia troops, ho ro-
jjliod unaffectedly:
"I owo everything to theso mon,
and the loast I enn do iu to spend
a few thousand rubles to help them
in thoir need."
That spivit animates most,'officers
in the Russian army to-day. Gen.
Kouropatkin, Gen. G'rodckolT and
othor famous Russian officers trained
under Skobeleff followed his example.
Now it is regarded as tho regular
thing in the Russian army?-for an officer to have to snend money.on his
men to remedy olliciol shortcomings.
It is to be feared that graft has .a
groat deal to do with those shortcomings.
These defects aro, however, largely
offset by tho patient endurance of
the Russian soldier, born of his doglike
LOYALTY TO THE CZAR.
The..:-American"- military attache was
impressed by that quality.
"When his battles result in defeats,
when his biscuits are full of maggots, when ; his clothes are, shabby,
when his? boots drop, to pieces, the
Russian "soldier," he said, reasons it
all out slowly, and can only coiiio to
tho conclusion, so pathetic in its simple faith: 'Ah,' if the Czar only
knew!'
"Kvery ono within his reach he
freely discusses, criticizes and blames;
ho hnlf suspects that his Generals j
may be fools, and he is sure that his
commissaries arc rascals; but no
thought.; of censure ovor crosses his
mind, against the Czar."
It is hardly necessary to point out
the value of this'mental'attitude as a
military asset. '

Some of tho Japanese commanders
adopted a short way with these ob-

DIVORCE IN JAPAN.
Nearly One Marriage Out of Four
Is a   Failure.
A recent issrro of a Japanese statistical ... pamphlet "Tn Japanese and
French.,reveals' some, curious facts of
a social  chnractor.
According to thisreport thore wore
in Japan? in tho year 1889 297,428
marriages. The ago of marriage
seems to bo nearer that commonly
prevailing in Europe and America
titan most  persons suppose.
Of men only 5 married under the
age-of-13, and only 108 under the
age of I (5. Nearly 5,400 married between tho ages of 16 and 18. The
number of marriages increased rapidly up to the ago of 24, whon it was
rather moro than 20,000. After that
ago fewer and fewer? men married and
less than a thousand married betweon tho ages of 48 and 49, though
a few men married: in extreme ��� old
age.
In the case of girls thero woro only
58 marriages under the ago of 14, and
the age at which the greatest number of marriages was reported was
between 20 and 21. Only about
900 women '.'wore reported as marrying between the ages, of -10 and 41,
but perhaps Japanese women are
prone, liko their Western sisters, to
cease having birthdays after they
pass SO. There wero a fow marriages of very old women, up to and*-beyond the ago of 80.
The civil state of the women marrying is significant. More than 247,-
000 of the' whole number are reported- as maidens, and nearly 8,600 aa
widows, whilo nearly 33,500 wore divorced women.
Astonishing arc the divorce statistics of Japan. In this report it is
shown that with fewer than 300,000
marriages reported- in the year, thore
were more than 6(1,000 dovorcos. The.
proportion of divorces' to niarriages
was about 1 to 4.
The fact is that Japanese civilization is most conspicrrously weak In
the, matter, of the status of women.
Divorce is easy.
In fact tho seven causes laid down
by Confucius nre allowed. Ono of
thoso permits a man to divorce his
wifo for talking too  much'.
Among the lower classes divorce is
extremely fretjuent. It is loss so
among tho upper classes, mainly because concubinage is common. Tho
divorced wife patiently endures hor
lot, and loaves the houso of her lord
with ,i blessing for 'him upon her lips.
It is a rare thing for a woman in
Japan (o seek divorce, though'.husbands frequently give sufficient cause.
Tlio fact that tho -caro of- tho children would fall upon the .'wife should
she. obtain a divorce is a sufficient deterrent to the mothers who are poor,
und the condition of extreme'.- subjection suffered by nearly rill Japanese
women probably deters wealthy wives from  seeking divorce.

DO M JUMP OUT OF BED,
THEORISTS        ARE      AGAINST
SUCH  A   PRACTSSJ3.
On the    Contrary,    They Say,    A
Person Should Wake Up
Slowly.
Wake up slowly I '
No matter what has teen your
habit, begin to-morrow morning nnd
wake up by degress.
Thc modern girl lives too much in
a hurry, anyway. She hurries out
shopping, sho hurries through the
stores, sho hurries home, hurries
through hor luncheon, hurries out to
take her constitutional, hurries back
to dross, and, finally, after a long
day of hurrying, sho hurries to bod,
so as to wake up early the next
morning.
Everybody wants to woke up early
enough, but few people do It. Tliey
sleep a minute too long, jump out
of bed, and the mischief is done.
You will suffer the effects all  day.
Tho theory of waking up slowly is
this : During sleep, the heart beats
sluggishly, and all the functions of
thc body uro, in a souse, asleep. Tho
vital organs are resting or as r*ear
it as they ever are.
When you wake up in a hurry and
jump out of bed, you set the heart
to beating rapidly, n.nd you ^stir up
all the vital organs with a. suddenness that is a distinct shock to
thorn. Thoy should wake up leisurely.
There are persons who habitually
Wake up suddenly, jump out of Led
and rush into a bath. Frequently
the bath will be taken within five
minutes after waking up, und the
result is not the vigor which one
expects to have in the niorning, but
a langor, a torpor, a feeling as
though one had worked hard all
dny.
When you wake up in the.morning
it is very important to wake up
slowly. As consciousness.returns to
you lie perfectly still for a while
until you, are wido awake.
OPEN  YOUR EYES  GENTLY,
to get accustomed to the light. Open
them, and   closo    thcm   again.     Perhaps you want to doze a little   before  waking up.
When you do wake up. wake up
Very leisurely,, like a kitten. Have
you ovor watched, a cat wako up?
It will stretch one log and then another. It will yawn? It will
stretch this muscle and that muscle.
It will stretch its back; it will roll
over, elongate its nock and roll ovor
again.
And how" does a baby wake up?
Watch a baby somo time and see.
= It opens its eyes nnd closes them
again and rubs its fists into them.
It trios to roll over; it stretches its
arms out," and it stretches its logs.
- It wakes up in a vory lcisusoly
way. You aro not sure it really is
awake until it begins to cry, which
is a signal that it , wants to bc
taken up.
A good natured baby will wake up
nnd laugh.     This is tho healthy nny
of wakening in the morning.     If you
are    houlthy,   and  if ,you are    good
natured,   you    will wake up   slowly,     '
stretch   and    yawn,     nnd  begin      to
laugh.      That is  the  proper  way  lo
awaken.
Ifere aro a fow  wake-up- don'*s :
Don't    wake up worrying.     13unish
caro    from your   mind.    You;   have
no idea    what   an  important    ���slTect
the    ifirst   waking    thoughts of your
mind exert upon your body    during
the  day,
Don't tako your breakfast "alone.
Even though .you may not want to
talk, it is a good thing to have
cheerful society in the room with
you. ��� It will keep' you from brood-,
ing.
- Don't plan things before breakfast
Many women nro in tho habit of
laying out the .day .and making
'memoranda beforo  they eat.
Don't think intently before breakfast. Try to keep thc mind a per-
fest blank until you have fed tho
the stomach.
Don't worry before breakfast.
Don't quarrel until you have boon
awake at least two hours. '.���'��� Quarrelling beforo the morning"meal is a
GHEAT WRINKLE. MAKEll.
Don't talk much before breakfast.
It tires the voico and taxes the
mind; :
Try to think pleasant'thoughts.
Try to got the mind in a calm,
pleasant statu.
Try to remember that a calm hour
before breakfast, makes a culm mind
all  day.
Try to smile und think of nothing
at iill. Don't tax the thought und
don't tax the spirit.
Then thore aro things you can do
as well us things you must not do.
One of .the most important principles
of correct living Is that of a bath
beforo breakfast.
Take ii bath on rising in tho morning.?;. 'Lot it? bo, a topid birth, just
the same"-temperature. us tho r'room,
and to secure this, draw tlio ; bath
the night  before.
For thoso who"can't have a morning plunge, and who an* very uncomfortable without it, there is a
substitute,    ;    massage. Massage
stretches tho muscles and rests them
aiid gives all the effect of the friction of the bath and tho bath'towel.
But if you cannot got massage...
thero is still unothor resort. Wako
up slowly and stretch every muscle
of tho body. Wako up by degrees,
wako up in.ii?leisurely way, wake rrp,
roll over, yawn throe times (ind
stretch   rigairr.
That is .the way to'wnko up in
such a ���milliner that you do not need
a bath or massage.
"A good yawn is better than a
cold bath any time," snid nu instructor in physical, culture. "Let.
ine wako up, taking half air hour for
tbo exercise, and lot mo yawn nil I ���
want to yawn, and I will do without the cold-bath-and without, .mas-
sago."
One of the. rules of waking is lo
exert every muscle of tbo body alternately, first tlie arms, thon the
legs, then ail the other muscloK. Go
through with ull the muscular con-,
tortious, while, you stretch, and you

I'.eforo he loft England, and resigned Jo;!*io to tho temporary care of
her other guardians, thoy went together to ti*e graves of their father
and mother, which Jessie had uiade
pleasant with flowers and greenery.
As lv* stood there, I'hilip thought of
all tnat liaey had done for him. Hut
for Matthew Meade's beautiful charily to tin orphaned child-waif, wlrat
might his lot have been ? A workhouse boy, a. nameless, homeless unit
in that mass of shipwrecked Immunity, untaught and unloved, what
chance of oven a decent life would
havo been  his ?
He was glad now that he had chosen the lowly home at Still brooko
rather than Mar-well; what worrld tho
mo'e brilliant-seeming life have profited *f*.*!m ii ho had remained a comparative stranger to thoso two kind
hearts,  now stilled forever ?
Yet hc must now be a nameless,
kinloiS man: his last forlorn hope
that ho might discover his own
origin in looking through Mr.
Meade's papers was gone. He decided once for all to think no more
of his dubious origin, from the
knowledge of which, in spite of his
efforts lo learn it, he shrank, fearing
dishonor. He felt that he ought to
know, but sinco he had failed to (ind

Jessie did,not hood, sho saw nothing but Philip's vanishing face; it
seemed as if hor life haii been violently wrenched from its placo.
As for Philip, he folt that nil that

aimlessly into a blank, homeless
void.
Yet ono thought throbbed g'o*"-'ing-

heart, meant nothing less than lo\e.
Ho was quite mire now ho should

up several inches" in height and her
mental nnu ��ioral growth kept, pace
with tho physical. The utter destruction of hor early associations,
the loss of homo, the sudden and repeated irruption of death, gave her
the emotional experience of years.
The sorrow of hor triple boi naval���

time, of Philip���was too great, sho
dared.not think of it. Occupation
was hor great panacea. She had

morc than pride or fear restrained
him from corsrlting Sir 'Arthur
Modwny, who would probably con-
ili.de thut Matthew Moade had told
him nil thoro was to know on his
coming to man's estate. And, after
nl1, if there wore any profit in knowing, they would surely have told
him beforo.
All who had cured for him and his
orphan sister lay there beneath tho
turf: ho must carve out a place in
"    life of his  own.
"My loss was greater thnn yours,
.le.-ssio." ho said. after a long silent o:  "I owed thcm more."
"Yes."   she     loplied,     looking   up
,    from hor flowers with a faint smile.
.   "And   ]   often   thought   tlrey      cared
most     for you.      Especially    father.
- Tliey woro so proud of you/'
"And  1  such a boast," ho thought.
"    * Then ho asked Jessie to renew the
doadi-bed promise, .and  tbey clasped
hands solem.-.ly over thc graven, and
ho piit a r ing-on her finger.
"Oh I Phi ip," sho exclaimed, when
thoy turned to lea*?e the spot, "it is
V?'an  opal i ing."
"Do:i't you like opals ?" he asked.
*'T thought you did; thnt is why I
iii ifo theni."
"Ah I   but tho bad  luck !"
"I-'oolifh child," he said, tenderly,
1 is heart going out to hcr in a rush
of pitying love, "how can "a true-
' lo\o gift be unlucky?"
Thoy, sat alone together in Mrs.
Plijuurtor's houso till late that night,
<oirr,liiig the minute". Xext morning
i.i ey drove together to Cleevo station
whcir'*o Philip started for Dover, on
his  wny  to India.
Jessie stood on the platform by
tl'O can iago-door with him till the
la**t moment; every tick of thc station  ilocl:  seemed  to  beat some life
- or.t of their throbbing hearts: thoy
held each ot'.er':; liands, and when
tho la**t boll clanged and their hands
were forced apart, tho jangling
strokes crashed on tic two bruised
young hearts. The engine panted
away, Philip looked back till the
bon.I of tho road swallowed him up
nnd ho could no longer see " Jessie,
and the yearning gaze of each was
met by vacancy. ^
Then Coi.sin Jane, who hnd boon-
fctundiiig at a bookstall showering
tears upon the monthly magazines,
came bustling forward and bid Jessie
'mako haste home to Miss Blusli-
foid's.
"He'll wi ito from Dover to-night,"
sliiT"Baiilr "and_that���ydii'ir'hev "to^

write, and at Paris. Dear, dear,
what expense he'lj be ut with postage to bo siue. Look up, Jessie,
look up, 'tisn't many of our sort can
themes, and Jessie stitched thoughtfully at the abhorred wool-work,
wondering if Miss Blushford's colossal ignorance were normal in schoolmistresses.
Miss TJltshFord was a good woman
and lovod Jessie, who loved her in
leturn. She wus about fifty, upright, thin, exact, self-denying, timid and rigid. What irite loct she ever-
possessed had been worn nwny in
mill-hoise drudgery and potty anxieties, what littlo knowledge she ovcr
acquired frittered away in constant
lnechuuical repetition to her pupils.
Her school had a good reputation,
it was select. Jessie had with groat
difficulty and much heart-searching
boon admitted to it; it was expensive
and yet Miss Blushford wus poor*.
And sho had nothing put by for old
ago or sicknoi-s. Sho was a lonely
woman, yot sho had many to sui>-
port.
In most families thoro is one holp-
lo*?s member dependent on tl.o rest, it
was so with tho 151ushfords; one
daughter was imbecile, MiS3 -Blush-

Orre male Blushford had failed in
business and passed his prime in
hunting for odd jobs, looking for
commissions, and hovering on the
verge of bani-ruptcy, whence Mi.-s
Illustiford pei'i.otrui'Iy plucked htm:
sho educated his nine children tuid
sot them oi.t in life. Her father's
second family she nlso educated and
set out in lifo, and supported her
stepmother till hor death. No wonder Miss Bli:s'*ford was poor. Her
elder brothers were mon of substance, it is true, but thoy had families whom they could not rob.
Hor sister "kept her carriage," and
was ashamed to own poor Bes-sio,
but no help was forthcoming from
her;,it was preposterous to suppose
that hor husband would rob bis
children to support his wife's rulq.-

to maintain the heirless members,
winning little but the contempt of

"I wonder' what poor Bc-sic will
do now ?" the family said, when
anybody camo to grief.
t Brrt .Tc*-sie knew of Miss Illushford
orly that sho was ignorant, narrow,

A man should so plan his work
that it will always bo dono at tho

man is worse than useless on a cattlo

for success or failure.

were all complied with. They thon

The Manchu army in the Central
Province, where brigandage is most
rampant, is chiefly employed in a perpetual conflict with the Chunchuses,
who fight with the greatest determination, and frequently como off best in
their encounters with the military.
Mr. Alexander Hosic. in his work on
Manchuria, says that brigandage is'a
recognized profession in tho central
province, and that parents havo been
overheard seriously discussing tho ad- -
visability of fitting out their sons as
brigands, much as English fathers
might debate tho question of sotting
rrp their sons in business. Thoso rob- *
bors .arc very active on the banks of
thc Amur, where they aro known to
the Russians as "Ilongus," and they
havo been a source of constant trouble to the Russians sinco their occupation of tho country. During tho
Japanese occupation of Manchuria,
at the time of the Chino-.Iapancso

the invaders morc than did the Chinese regulars, and it is even said that
the Chinese promised one of their

the Japanese, though what success
ho achieved is not recorded.

To such we  consider'it pertinent to ask "is not an  ounce of prevention worth a pound of  cure ? " ���������  We have spoken from the standpoint of Western business men. A  word may be added to our friends in  the East. The amount of business to  be dono in Western Canada, the  market to be gained or retained here  by the producers of Eastern Canada  in competition with those of the  United States is largely a question of  railway rates and facilities. Those  who imagine that the Grand Trunk  Pacific, loaded with enormous overcapitalization, and with that great and  costly folly, the Eastern section will  be anything but an additional incubus  to inter-proviucial trade, are nursing a  grievous delusion.

While 1 prospected much of  it in the vicinity of Groat Slave lake  witl o it. finding anything but the  faintest signs of the precious lnetnl.  still that does not mean that there is  none there. After 1 'make good' on  my little discovery, I am going to  devote many mouths to thoroughly  going over tiro country."  Mr. SliioiV spout four yours in Australia some year's ago, and hns also  worked in the mines in South Africa.  He went to the Klondike two years  ago, proved unsuccessful in his work  there and then drifted into tlio Northwest Territory, more on a hunting  expedition than to discover gold. On  this trip he intends going fiistc to  Nome, tlien taking a coasting schooner  oi* small steamer to Shishniareff inlet,  and from there down the Mackenzie  river.  NOTICE.

The following protest by 21 prominent business men of "Winnipeg, all  old-time Liberals, against the agreement with the Grand Trunk Pacific  Hailway Company, has been sent to  Sir "Wilfrid Laurier:  " As business men, whose interests  ���������will be seriously affected by the rail-  way policy_of jibe Dominion Government, nnd who, tlrerefo"re~realize���������tire  elfect upon the general interest of the  "West, we feel obliged to protest  against tho proposal embodied in the  Grand Trunk Pacific agreement.  Liberals on principle and by conviction,  wo cannot support the Liberal party  in a ti-ansaction embodying, on a large  scale the very evil to which genuine  Liberalism is most fundamentally  opjrosed���������Tlie sacrifice of public good  to private greed.  lhe enormous liability proposed is  to Ik* incurred mainly' for tho construction of the proposed Eastern  section, nn undertaking absolutely  absurd as a reined}* for the congestion  of traflle or for the lack of adequate  facilities from whicli the West suffers.  Nor is the Western section, 11s shown  in the map published by the Dominion  Government, of much more value.  Closely paralleling lines already in  operation, or approaching completion  from Winnipeg to the Itocky Mountains, it fails to develop new territory.  And its possibilities of usefulness ns a  means of securing reduced rates or  improved car supply, either for Western exports or* for imports from the  East, are effectively nullified by the  terms and conditions under which it is  to lie constructed and financed.  The remedy lies in railways under  public ownership, and operated by a  non partisan commission. The intercolonial should be freed from tho  spoils system, placed under srrch n  general manager as Sir Thos. Shaugh-  nessy, Mr. Hays, Mr. Whyte, or* other'  cllicieiit railway administrators, and  extended to the Rocky Monntains arid  the Pacific Ocean. Public ownership  would free us from over-capitalization,  from combination from excessive  rates, and from inadequate equipment,  with cai-s and locomotives, it would  give us a truly national transportation  policy, would immensely facilitate  business and augment the prosperity  of Canada, and it would deliver us  from     the   frightfully    demoralizing  .Tas. M. Shieif, n former Australian  minor, yesterday sailed for the North  from Seattle on n> quest for a rich  "pocket"' of gold which ho believes he  can locate at Great Slave lake, in the  Northwest Territories, lie bases his  belief in the existence of the treasure  on statements made him by an Indian.  His mission and what he says of his  former experiences possess an especial  interest to the milling community of  British Columbia. The Seattle Post-  Intelligencer thus deals with his visit  to that city :  A story of difficulties experienced  in efforts to locate a rich "pocket" of  gold at Great Slave lake, Northwest  Territory, the probabilities of valuable  finds of precious metal in that country  and the persistency of an experienced  prospector in making another effort  to discover the mine after almost losing bis life once in a hunt for the  pocket, is the scory brought to this  city by James M, Shieff, of Milwaukee,  a former Australian miner, who is  jioiv staying at =the Hiitel _Cecil, en^  ~rbirtci"N(H*tli. According-to~liim"tlie  gold he has practically located is more  on the style of Australian metal than  anything else, and a dilferent color  from that found elsewhere on this  continent.  Tlirough the blundering of an Indian  guide, Mr. Shieif first secured a line on  the precious metal. The Indian came  into camp one morning with several  nuggets in his pockets of the value of  which he had not the slightest, con  eoption. By close questioning the  American elicited the whereabouts of  the find, Iind tire Indian draw a rough  limp of the exact location, and, loading  all their supplies in a dug-out owned  by tlio guide and breaking camp, the  two started for the scone of the  alleged find.  The little craft camo within half a  mile of the other side of Groat Slave  lake, when a squall, prevalent on that  shoot of water in the Into fall, sprang  up and the boat capsized, spilling tho  occupants in the writer. The Indian,  injured in some manner, failed to come  to the surface again, and Mr. Shieif,  after a heroic .struggle, mode,land  alone. His provisions had all boon  lost, together with his rifle and ammunition, and all the weapons he was  possessed of wn.s a revolver and a  knife. As it was late in the fall, and,  without provisions or a kit, Shieff was  unable to work bis find even after he  discovered its exact location, ho.gave  up all idea, of using the information at  his disposal for a time, and made for  the coast, which he reached after  many hardships. Tic then came to the  .States, and, going oast, started to  raise monoy with whicli to. "grub  stake'' himself for work tlris your.

It is tho harbinger of sunsi.ino, and birds and  flowers; It breathes of freedom and  out-of-door lifo. But unfortunately  thoro are thousands who cannot enter into the spirit of the season.  Closo confinement during tho long  winter months has left them weak,  dispirtcd and oppressed; tho appetite from  is tickle; the blood is sluggish with  impurities; the oyes lnc.k tho lustro  of health; weariness und lassitude  havo taken the place of vigorous energy. What is needed at this season  by such peoplo is a health-renewing,  blood-making tonic���������something that  will send new, rich red blood coursing through the veins, bring brightness to tho eye, a healthy appetite,  and a clear skin freo from pimples  and eruptions.

The littlo men of Japnn who havo  dared to face tho Russian boar can  give tho world many thrilling stories  of courage, and many of clover stratagem as'well. Ono of the powerful  nobles of the olden time was forced  to flee from his enemy in haste. Ho  ! hid in a barrel  and  was borne nway  perfectly still seve-al times a day  for fifteen or twenty minutes nt a  time, while the faithful brute industriously licks the hurt clean of all  foreign substances. Tho motion of  thc tongue has a  MOST SOOTHING  EFFECT.  Wherever  rattle-snakes   abound     in  countries  in   which   leprosy  is      also  prevalent,   the  belief  Is  current  that  tho bite of the reptile in question is  not only non-injurious to persons infected   with     that   dread   complaint,  but     that    it in   some way actually  acts   beneficially.      Dr.   M.   dcMourn,  a-'Brazilian scientist, has deemed this  belief    worthy    of    careful investigation.  He first of nil  assured himself    by  "   artual   observation   that  the  leprous  Indians of the Matto Grosso .were in  the habit of allowing themselves   to  be   bitten   periodically  by   full-grown  ��������� "rattles,"      and with  results     which  were,  at 'all events,  not unbene'ficinl.  Ho next caught a number of. the i entiles,     prosed the poison from     the  glands,      nnd administered  it suncu-  .  taneously  by  means  of an  ordinary  hypodermic syringe  to  fifteen  selected lep' ous patients.  The results were so far encouraging  that' the novel treatment is now being systematically pursued, both at  tho leper asylum at Molokai, in the  Sandwich Islands, and at that supported by our own Government at  Robben   Island,   Cape   Co'ony.  Tlio bite of the terrible tarantula  spie'er has long been credited with  all sorts of curative and- even  MAGICAL POWERS.  In Mexico many natives who are  a(Tli'*tod with paralysis allow ..tl ein-  sel'os to be bitten by it periodically  with beneficial results, Dr. Steinz-  fortke thinks: while in Peru the same  drastic remedy is used in cases of  vcrrugia, that bane of tlie high Andean  valleys.  Bee-stings are said to constitute an"  -almost infallible cure for rheumatism; provided, that is, the sufferer has nerve enough to stand a  Kufliciently large "dose" of the painful  "modi ine."  The negroes of the Congo basin  allow themselves to be bitten by tho  terrible termites (white ants) when  ' attacked by the dreaded sleeping  hickness, and stoutly maintain that  ��������� the "cure" is certain to be efficacious, if only it ls applied in the  earlier stages of the malady..-  It was noted by Kraussc, nearly a  century ago, that the Siberian peasants, when bitten by a rabid dog or  wolf, used to kill the animal at onco  ���������whenever "possible���������nnd inoculate  themselves with its spinal marrow.  The learned Austrian physi'ian only makes mention of ..the' custom to  laugh at it. But he admits that the  sufferers had a rooted belief in its  efllcacy in warding off the attack of  hydrophobia, - which else, they a^crr-  - ed.-was-almost-certain-to-follow. ���������A-  bignificuiit admission this, in thc  light cf what wo now know of Pasteur's treatment of tho  SAME DREAD DISEASE.  The Greenland Eskimos arc said  to cure themselves of the itch by  immuring themselves for an hour or  two inside the freshly-killod carcase  of a whale. A favorite Chinese remedy for cholera is pig's liver, mixed with brick dust from the inside  of a furnace���������a compound known as  the "liver of the hiding dragon."  The Matabili are quite sure that a  lion's breath cures any form of skin  disease, and many sufferers have lost  t'-eir lives in attempting to get near  enough to a sleeping animal that  they may inhale his expirations.  Among the Irish peasantry o somewhat similar belief is common with  regard to tho ordinary domestic ass  and whooping-cough. A loaf of  bread i.s baked and given to the animal to eat.

The  pulp thus obtained is then plunged  into a so a' bad', w'ere it slays U6  hours.
