B. HUME Hi (0, Limited  RICH STBIft!  OF FREE GOLD  il  Ore on the Kingston Group���������  The New Company is Pushing Active Development work  with Good Results.  A veiy I'ieh strike of tvea gold ore in  which the gold is visible to the naked  eye was made on the Kingston group  last week, and Che strike has caused a  good deal of excitement in the Fish  River camp. The Kingston group  was recently bonded to Portland peoplo for the sum of $200,OOU and consists of Ave full-sized claims and three  fractions. It is situated on the Lexington mountain to the eastward of  the Copper Dollar aud Eva mines.  Considerable work has heen done on  the claims, exposing in open cuts  massive quartz ledges, varying in  width from '���������> to -10 feet. Iu two instances the veins are uncovered -10  feet in length and -10 feet in width,  showing gold freely disseminated  throughout, and from which the management states valiu-s as high as  !r!207.50 per ton have been received.  Another fine showing of thirteen  feet of high grade gold ore is exposed  ou. this property and running from  the Copper Dollar property owned by  the Elwood Tinworkers Co. Mr.  Blockbei'ger, wiio, with his associates  have owned aud worked the Kingston  group for some' years have always  maintained th.it it- would prove a valuable holding which by recent development has proved this faith. The  Kingston grpup is in good company  lying beside the famous Eva, Oyster-  Criterion and Copper Dollar" proper-  tics. _ The two first named are now  and have been for nearly a year, turning out regular monthly gold bricks of  much value, thus proving"the nature  of the gold bearing rocks -in the  famous Lexington mountain range..,  Dominion Day Programme.

Based   on   the   Production   of  Silver-Lead and Gold-Copper  Ores, Lumber, Coal and Coke  ���������Rich for Miner and Operator  The reason Kootenay has solid prosperity today is because the prosperity  is based on what Kootenaj* is producing in the shape of silver-lead and  gold-copper ores and lumber and coal  arrd-coke. The bulk of the ores are  smelted in Kootenay. and part of the  product i.s marKeted as a commodity.  All the timber cut in Kootenay is  made into lumber in Kootenay. A  fair proportion of the coal mined and  tbe bulk of the coke mnde is used in  Kootenay. The payrolls of the mines,  the smelters, the logging camps, and  the sawmills, as well as the payrolls  "of tlTertran^poT,tatimr_cciTnpanies~oper-"  ating in Kootenaj*, are met from the  proceeds of the sale of Kootenay's  products. While many mining and  other ventures have not proved successful, the Kootcnays, nevertheless  have been a good field for careful  operators, and hundreds of men who  c.ime to Kootenay poor are today  well off. Kootenay has had its tips  and downs, like all other mining countries; hut where on the Pacific Coast  is thero a more prosperous country  than Kootenay? How many of her  thirty thousand people aie either  going hurfgry .or without shelter!*'  While few people have large bank  accounts, the number who are broke  is still less.- And the best of all is, the  men who made money in Kootenay  and took it to the States for investment are returning to Kootenay in  the, belief that, alter all, Kootenay  presents a belter field for the prospector and operator than any other  mining section on the Pacific Coast;  aud, at the same time, it is a country  in which the laws are respected, and  where no one need fear loss of liberty  or property or life through insurrection or violence. Men are neither  dynamited nor deported. God save  the king!���������Nelson Tribune.  -The boys will return frtun.KamIoops  Saturday and arrangements have been  made to, play the Golden team Saturday  moi ning  at the athletic grounds.  Football  Arrangements liave been completed  for the football game between the  Revelstoke and Trout Lake teams,  which takes place tomorrow morning  at the athletic grounds and a good  game is expected. The two teams have  each a game to their ctedit and tomorrows game will decide which is  the better eleven. .. The local boys are,  confident in their ability to defeat the  visitors and the spectators .may be  sure of getting their money's -worth.  The "kick oif" .will take place at 11  a.m. and the management hope the  general public will patronize the  grounds liberally in order to assist the  boys in financing the game.

Orangemen's Church Parade  The regular annual Church parade  of the member.*! of the Loyal Orange  Association-of ltevelstoke will take  place from their lodge room Sunday  evening, July 10th next to the Presbyterian church. Hev. W. C. Calder  u ill preach the sermon. All members  of the Order and visiting members are  invited lo be present. After the  service the lodge will be opened and  remain open until after the 12th of  July.  The Revelstoke Club.  On Saturday last the 25th instant  the Revelstoke Club was opened to the  members. The need of such an institution has been felt for a long time.  Every town in the Province of any  importance has its club where business  men can meet together in a social  way, and enjoy a pleasant chat and  indulge in harmless recreation. The  committee of management is us follows :  President���������T. Kilpatrick.  Vice-President���������G. S, McCarter.  Seey-Treus.���������A. E. Kincaid.  ���������Committee���������A.-E.-Phipps,-Dr. Sutherland, H. A.  Brown, F. B. Lewis, A.  McRne and Fred. Fraser.  The fact that the affairs of the club  are in such capable hands is an assurance that the club will be a success  und will be conducted on proper lines.  No gambling of any form will bo permitted in the club.  The premises purchased by the club  are those formerly occupied by The  Imperial Bank of Canada and have  been remodelled throughout and (ittud  up and furnished comfortably. There  arc four sitting rooms, two private  writing rooms, two bed rooms, bath  room and lavatory, billiard room and  ofllce and a suite of a oom.s at the west  end of the building occupied as it surgery by Dr. Sutherland. A flrst class  English billiard table, made by Samuel  May & Co. and a Nordheim piano have  been installed, also electric lights and  bells.  The place is admirably suited to the  purpose and we feel assured the club  will be a success iu every way.  CRAWFORD-LADNKR.

Buffalos Fight to Death.  Three huge bison engaged in a sanguinary battle last Thursday night in  the National Park, Banff, says the  Calgary Herald. The result was the  loss of one valuable animal and two  badly scarred combattants. Howard  Douglas said it was one of the fiercest  contests of brute strength ever witnessed in tho park. A big four-year-  old bull was attacked in the afternoon  hy two live und six year old bulls.  The battle continued until 0 o'clock  the next morning, when the object of  the attack ceased to show signs of life.  The infuriated animals, covered with  blood, then abandoned the lacerated-*  body of the big bull. Efforts of tho  attendants to separate tlie enraged  brutes were fruitless. The dead  buffalo was gored and trampled into a  pulp.  'J'Vj 4-W*-W-W-W~I^'l~i*'I~t'M~*l'-l*'i'-i-S>  I  i  I  I Mi li  Whatever its nature, it was evidently satisfactory; for they both seemed  in excellent spirits as they wished tlio  little lady "Good-night," aud left her  standing puzzled by thc side of her  newly-acquired treasure.  "You'll liave plenty of time, old  man," Cunningham was saying to his  companion as thoy left the house, "to  He's  ^.j_j_j_7������,j..I_j_I..j_^.^..j_}���������j.^..j^_}_{..jj.j. ;iloolc up old Skinner to-night  I never   soon    you    before, I'm certain.  '���������Halloa, aunt! Another bargain!"  said Dick Cunningham, quizzingly,  steering himself round an old oak  tublo which blocked up the entrance  to one of the tiny rooms of hi.s aunt's  flat, and kissing the old lady affectionately on her still smooth cheek.  Poor Mica Jane at once became  eloquent���������also tearful.  ���������'Oh, l>i:l-;" she cried, wringing her  lipids, "it's no laughing matter.  That rascally Jacob Skinner has  swindled  me!"  "What���������again!" laughed her nephe.w  irreverently, seating himself on the  table ond thumping it with his fist.  "What did you give for this, auntie?  Come now���������no equivocation!"  "Well, to tell you the truth, Dick,  I paid fifteen pounds for it"���������blushing  like a girl of seventeen. "It was  really mon- than I could .afford; but  it seemed srrch a. lovely piece of seventeenth-century oak that I simply  couldn't resist it. And now old Col-  onol Marsh tells me It's a fraud, and  worth four or:;frve pounds at the outside. T'll never, never buy anything  of Skinner again!"  Dick looked meaningly at an "alleged" ^rand-father clock���������a former  purchase of his aunt's from the wily  dealer in antiques���������and  smiled.  "Oh, I know; I've said so before,"  faltered little Miss Cunningham,��������� evading her nephew's mocking glance.  "But this time I really did think I  1'ad a bargain. Dick."  "Few people ever get a bargain  from Jacob Skinner," said her nephew, sententiously. "He's about as  smart ������_ man ns I've seen. Everyone  admits that���������most of them with very  good reason, too! What we have to  do now, auntie, Is to see if anything  can be done in the matter. But I  doubt it. 'Caveat emptor' is a very  good rule to remember when yoir are  looking out for bargains in antiques!"  "Oh, if you only could do something, Dick!" cried his aunt, appoal-  inrjly.  "Well;  are there .any  further  particulars you can give me?"  Miss  Jane  shook  hcr  head,   doubtfully.  "No."     she  replied.       "I'm  afraid  not.     Ke  bought  it at  the  sale     of  old Jlr,    Walsh's effects���������that's all 1  know," she ado'ed.  "What���������Walsh the miser?"  "Yes."  "Supposed to bo worth ten thousand pounds in cash at least when he  died," continued her ncpliew.. "Never  found a penny of it, did they?"  Miss Jane nodden confirmation.  Cunningham put oir liis ''lawyer"  face, as became "a full-blown solicitor-  Go carefully, though. He'll take a  lot  of handling."  "Trust mc, Dick," said his friend,  heartily.    "lly Jove, this i3 rich!"  And they separated.  Dick  was  right.  Sure enough, lie had not been five  minutes with Iris aunt next morning  before a tug at tho bell urrnounced  Mr. Jacob Skinner, and with an oily  smile that very cute gentleman was  iiiihcred into tire room.  He seemed a littlo disturbed at finding Miss Jane reinforced by her nephew's presence, but quickly recovered  hi.s self-possession. There was an air  of suppressed excitement about him  ql'ite foreign to his usual behaviour,  and, although this escaped the notice of the unsuspecting Miss Cunningham, it was tire source of unholy, joy  to 'Dick.  Miss Jane motioned hcr visitor to a  chair and waited for him to begin.  Tho dealer in antiques seemed rather nt a loss to explain his early call,  bul. eventually blurted  out:���������  'It's about that antique table,  ma'am," pointing to whero it stood,  covered with its new owner's knitting  and  fancy work.  "Yes?" encouragingly.  "Well, ma'am, I had a caller last  niglit, just as I was a-closing. It  seems he was a relative of old Mr.  Walsh. You remember I told, you I  bought tha table at the sale?"  .Miss Jane  nodded'.  The dealer continued: "He. particularly wanted to buy that table. Had  mind telling you tliat that table has  a history."  Miss Jane looked at hor nephew apprehensively, as if doubtful. whether  the dealer had not "done" them after  all; but Dick nodded reassuringly.  "Come now," ho said; "you didn't  buy it for its history, Mr. Skinner?"  That worthy leered knowingly at  tl"e speaker, and after evidently considering whether ho should tako his  hearers into Iris confidence his elation  got the better of his usual caution,  and he continued:���������  "Well, not exactly, sir���������not exactly.  It's like tliis. Last evening, just as I  was shutting up, in conies a young  chap, as I told you before. He  wanted an antique table, describing  one very   much like 1  had sold Miss  for an investigation of the table by  its now owner, resulted in the accidental discovery that it had a double  top, between the two portions of  which wore found bundles of notos  amounting to a sum considerably  more than ������10,000.  And Jacob Skinner nearly liad a fit  when ho hoard of it.���������London Tit-  Bits.  . a   PEESONAL  POINTERS.  i Notes     of    Interest About  Prominent  People.

A brisk walk for a couplo of miles in  tho fresh morning air, or a four or  live milo bicyclo ride, is ono of tho  first essentials.  Plain, nourishing food and nbund-  nnco of good, ripe fruit is another.  Fruit Is best eaten in the niorning.  Bananas nro easy ot digestion to  some, and very nutritious; grapes are  nourishing and fattening; apples aro  especially good for brain workers, and.  oranges aro of groat benefit to people afflicted with rheumatism.  Personal cleanliness is tho next os-  sentinl lo keeping young. A daily  bath and a good rub will door thi*  complexion faster than medicino".

It has been said that few men die  of old ago, and that almost all persons die of disappointment, personal,  mental, or bodily toil, or accident.  Tlio- passions kill men sometimes ovon suddenly. The common expression  "choked with rage," has little exaggeration in it, for even though not  suddenly fatal, strong passions shorten lifo. Strong-bodied men often die  young, weak men live longer than the  strong, for .the strong use their  strength', and the weak have none to  use���������the latter tako care of themselves  thn former do not. As it is with the  body so it is with the mind? and the  toiripor; the strong aro apt to ? break,  or, like the candle, run; the weak  burn out. The inforlor animals,  which live temporate lives, have generally their prescribed term of years.  Thus the horse lives twonty-flvo  years," tho ox: fifteen to twenty, the  lion about twenty, the hog' ten or  twolvo, the rabbit"' eight, the guinea  pig six or seven. Tho numbers all  bear proportion to the time lho animal takes to grow its full sizo. But  man, of all animals, is one that seldom domoB up to the average:      He j  sary, and sunshine too.  Poor ventilation is accountable for  much ugliness, and in children deformity. Fresh ,nir and sunshine aro  as essential to a human being as they  aro to a plant.  Avoid tiglit clothing,' corsets, garters, slonvcs, armliolcs, collars and  waistbands.     Tight  clothing dicturbs  and is  the, pause. of red noses,'-enlarged veins,  flushings, etc.  Eight hours' sleep Is absolutely ro  quired to rest tho brain, and a tea  minutos' nap twice a .'.'day "will do  much, toward warding off wrinkloj  and keeping the face youthful.  EARLY   RISING.  ���������Most persons who havo lived to ��������� be  old have been good sleepers, but  this does not moan that they havo  been long sleepers. A good sleeper ia  ! ono who sloops woll. - He may sleep  quite enough in six of seven hours to  I answer all hia needs, and it would  j bo folly for him to lie in bed threo or ,  four hours more. As a rule, ' long-  lived persons have been early risers  because thoy have boen good sleepers.  By "good sloop" is meant sleep ��������� that  is sweot and sound, withoui droam-'  ing, refreshing; the .body recuperates  wholly. - Those who lovo' to rise early generally aro of tliis sort. Thoy  have strong wills and good health to  begin with. Lato risers are often invalids or persons of bad habits,; idlers who are never free from other  vices besides idleness. Tho '" nervous  exhaustion which keeps a man wakeful throughout the small hours ro-  guires sleep late in tho morning. Thii  exhaustion is invariably duo to om  of several life-shortoulng influences,  especially anxiety or indiscretion- in  diet or drink.  Early rising is thus rather one effect ,' of certain favorable influences,  anothor result of which is longevity,  than a cause of longevity. To turn a,  weakly man out of bod every."morning*  will not prolong-his life unless h������  has slept enough. Preventing a,  weakly person from, stooping"mora  than four or flvo hours nightly would  not causo him. to live to bo old, but  would tend to shorten his lifo. Early  rising does not mean the time by tho  clock. The word "has a relative significance with reference to the timo  of going to bod. -A person who re-  tiros to rest four hours after midnight  and gets up at ]0 a.m". may be  strictly regarded as an 'early riser.' "���������  Thus early rising is synonumous witli  short sleeping, which moans rjipid recovery from fatigue, itself a sign of  bodily strength. Early rising'as a  practice may bo ctrltivoted by all per-  son_s__in good health. It is excellent  as moral discipline,. and eminently  healthy as a matter of fact. Most  persons will cat three meals daily.  When a man gets up lato those meals  will probably follow each other at too  sljort Intervals and be eaten too rapidly to bo wholesome. When he is an  early riser it will probably'' be otherwise. He can enjoy a good breakfast, and when his other meals ore  duo bo1*1 will bo ready for 'them, and  wilh a good appetite, which is itself  ono of tlie signs of health.  THE.WOMAN .WITH A WMIUK.

Nearly a hundred years ago a stout  person appeared, the boy said very  modestly, "1 would liko to attend  your evening school, sir." r.  "And what do you wish to study?"  asked the teacher, roughly.  "I want to learn to road and  writo. sir," answered tho lad.  The schoolmaster glanced at the  boy's homely faco and rough clothes  scornfully, (tad said, "Very well, you  may attend; but an awkward, bare-'  leggod laddie like you would better  bo doing something else than Icarn-  ' ing hi.s letters." Then he closed tho  door in the lad's face.  Tho bos* wad the son of a fireman  of a pumping-enginc in a Northumberland colliery. His birthplace was a  hovel with a clay floor, mud walls,  nnd bare rafters. Whon he was live  years old, he began to work for his  living by hording cows in the daytime and b*rring up the gates at  niglj't.     As ho grew  older he was sot  in bed. "My life seemed a burden to  mo and I found no pleasure in anything. I sought medical aid and  the physicians who attended mo were  unable to give me any relief. The  doctors 'differed in thair opinion as  to my ailment. Finding that I was  growing worse, and almost crazed  through loss of sleep, I concluded to  give, up business and go to tho  country for a rest. Just when I  Was at my very worst and had almost no desire to live, my wifo  urged me to try Dr. Williams Pink  Pills. I had lost faith in all medicines, but to please nry wife I decided to give the pills a trial. I have  had reason to bc thankful that I  did so. Almost from the outset tho  pills helped mo and I was able to  sleep. I continued their uso until  I felt perfectly well again. I could  sleep as I did in my childhood; I  grew healthy and strong and have  never      known     one     hour's  trouble  THE BOY GOT IT.

"I tell you I don't want it carried," said the man, quickening his  pace.  "Don't you ?" asked the boy,  breaking into a trot to keep abreast  of his victim."  "No, I don't," answered the man,  glancing fiercely ut his small tormentor.  "Well, then, mister," said tho urchin, with an expression of anxious  nnd innocent inquiry on his round,  dirty face : "Wbat aro you carrying  it for ? Why don't . you put it  down ?"  He got the bag.  A GOOD IDEA.  dear-  it  to picking stones from the coal,  and | from that source sinco.      I have no  after that  to-driving a  horse   which  drew coal     from  the pit.       He went  , half-fed and  hali'-clothed.  When he called at tho schoolhouso,  ho was plugman of a pumping-engine,  aud, though he knew nothing of reading or writing, he had studied the  engine until ho had a complete knowledge of the machine. He was able  to take it apart, and make any ordinary repairs.  Not discouraged by the advice given  him   by   tho     schoolmaster,   he  mado  application  and  attendod  tho evening  school.       At  tho    end   of  about  two  years he had  learned  all  this   school  could  teach  him.       Ho  conceived  tho  plan  of  constructing  a  steam-engine.  It took bim a long time:  but at tho  ago of forty ho had constructed several engines,_ and  was known  as a successful   and     energetic    engineer,   and  wus  called   upon  to  build   long     and  difficult linos of railway.  But bis locomotives were too slow;  . he wanted them to run  faster.        Ho  proposed to build'one tliat would run  "at the rate of twelve miles an hour.  Everybody  laughed  at  him.     _ Some  thought  ho  was  crazy.       One  gentleman,   who     considered  himself     vory  wisa,  said  to  him:  "Suppose you  invent an "eng ine "capable of running,   a  cow, should stray upon the track. Will  ,   not thnt be a. very~awkward circum-  " stance?" >. '  "I should think' it might bc very  awkward���������for the cow," he answered.  ��������� Well, he succeeded in making his locomotive, and at a trial which* took  placo near Liverpool it attained to  the unprecedented speed of fourteen  milos an hour. By making certain  . improvements the same engine, tho  nocket, was made to attain tho s^oed  of tliirty miles an hour. People  -   laughed no longer, but admired.  Ho was invited ns a consulting engineer to foreign countries, and  wealth (lowed upon him. ,i Philosophers sought his friendship.

For  tho last 10 years thc suflorirrg was  terrible; it would bc impossible to describe it. During tne last three  years I had convulsions /rom which  the only relic/ was tho uso of morphine.  "I had several physicians, nearly all  of whom advised mc to stop drinking  tea and collee, but as I could take  only liquid foods, I folt I could- not  live without coffee. I- continued  drinking it until I became almost insane, my mind was affected, while my  whole nervous system was a complete  wreck. I suffered day and night from  thirst ond as water would only mako  mc sick I kept trying different drinks  until a friend asked mo to try For>  turn Food ��������� Coffee.  "I did so, but it was somo time  beforo I was benefited by tho change,  my system whs so "filled with cofreo  poison.

It is a well-known fact that dogs  firemen make pots of frequently display an unusual amount of intelligence. This is probably because a  groat deal!of tho compulsory leisure  of tho.men is utilized in developing  any promising feature that may be  detected in their pots.  At the present time there is at the  chief district station of tho Metropolitan fire brigade in Uucon's road,  a handsome Scotch colllo belonging  to themen which is evidently endowed with almost human understanding. It occupies a berth in  the single men's quarters, and when  at nfght the bells are rung for a ilre  call the dog rushes from room to  room" to see that all hands have  been awakened.  Sometimes it occurs that one or  twoof the7men are so tired that the  clanging,1 of. the bells fails lb arouse  them.', It is to such as these that  Xellie devotes hor special attention.  With a,bark she -bounds upon the  bod, and having dragged the clothing off, proceeds to dislodge the  sleeper.

The Canadian  people should cherish  it as one of Uie  sins to be visited on the heads of those  who are doing their best to introduce  machine methods into a branch of the  public  service,   which,   if   tolerated,;  marks the ruin  of the Militia.   Loid  Dundonald  in calling the hand of the  Minister of Agriculture did what any  self respecting Canadian would have  done.     The time1 has, not arrived in  this land of freedom of thought, when  even a   boss   can abuse men witli impunity.    Placed  in the same position  as   Dundonald   has   been, it is safe to  ,.  say ninety men  in ar hundred would  have acted as the commanding officer  of the Canadian forces did.     The fact  that Dundonald acted somewhat hastily is easily understood  by those who  know   -Mr.   Fisher.   , The Minister of  Agriculture,  of   all   the   ministers, is  perhaps the most conceited nnd incompetent.     Like   most small men, he is  incapable of  seeing  further than the  end of his nose, and through Dundonald   he   attempted   a   miserable   and  pretty act of  political-trickery  which  was not   tolerated   for a 'moment,    It  would require  a   pretty good stretch  of imagination to picture the man who  relieved    Ladysiuith   submitting   his  per-sonal dignity   and   self-respect to  tlie boot soles of   such as Mr. Fisher,  and the inevitable rebellion followed.  But the action of Dundonald will pa: s  -from-sight'witlrhisretunt to England.^  Not so with the Minister of Agriculture.     Canada will have the pleasure  of his company as well as that of his  associates for some time yet, and the  people, who are even above the Minister of Agriculture, are to say by their  ballots  whether they approve or disapprove     such   acts    a-s     have   been  brought home  to the door of the man  who has  done   so much to injure the  military   system of   Canada.    I tis all  very   nice   to refer to Dundonald as  '���������the best soldier who bus ever presided over the militia," but the cause of  his removal, the Hon. Sydney Fisher,  is the person on whom the eyes of the  electors   should   centre  on the day of  the next election.    If the people are to  pay for the maintenance of the force,  the Fishers and  their  kind should be  given a back seat.  to lay the truth before the country.  He declined to be led around with a  ring in his nose. That is the head and  front of Iris offending.  According to Will", Lord Stiatlicoiia  and the editor ol" The Eye Opener are  both foreigners. When n Frcnolmian  gets excited he should be put*to bed  by his friends and have cracked ice  put on his head.  All Scotchmen with votes in lliis  country will please bear in mind that  they are now ollicially elassilied hy  the Liberal government as foreigners.  Dundonald's   Dismissal.  (From the Eye Opener)  The English press is siding strongly  with Lord  Dundonald  in  his protest  against giving important  pointrnents  militia ap-  to political partisans  whom the government needs in its  rather painful business of hanging on  to power. In the event of threatened  attack or actual warfare Canada will  find herself in a pretty mess with her  companies of militia officered by a  gang of political boosters.  Dundonald  with  the shrewdness of  the typical Scot, was not slow to (Kim  ble to the fact thab tho only way to  frustrate baneful political intrigue and  fulfill his duty l.o tho empire was to  make such a public scandal about it  that not only Canadians hut the military authorities at home would have  their eyes opened to the unwholesome  predominance of politics in the scheme  of defence of this portion of the British empire.  It makes no strain on the imagination to picture the bulletins issued  during a war on Canadian soil:  "A squadron of the Canadian Militia  under the command of Colonel Mo-  Grafter, whose work during tho last  election in Chipmunk county was ol"  tlie highest importance to his party,  made a inaoeuvre to outflank the enemy but were met with a heavy rifle  fire and forced to retire. Colonel Mc-  Grafter has a high reputation, having  been returning officer for his district  at the two last elections.  "Before going into battle at Sarnia  General de Ballotte addressed his  troops on the prospects of thc party  atthe next election, reminding them  that maiiy might be among the slain,  but strongly urging all those who  came out of the engagement alive lo  remain'staunch supporters of the.Liberal cause and givo hiin their loyal  support, in getting the oflice of immigration agent at Glasgow. "With  shouts of 'We will! We will ! ' the  troops charged the enemy with impetuosity. There was one oflicer wounded  Lieutenant Evershy, who, it will bo  remembered, was the defeated candidate some years ago for East Oxford,  but who now has been recommended  by his superior officer for a job in the  custom house at Portal."'  "At, the engagement of Carberry  Hill Capt. John Collins, of B squadron  adopted a successful ruse to discomfit  the enemy. Clambering up the hill far-  ahead of his troops he stood on thc  summit and started reading in a loud  voice S if ton's defense of the G. T. P.  deal, whereupon the enemy fled in  confusion. It is said that this act of  gallantry will gain for the valorous  officer a job in the Land Department  especially if his political pull in his  native village is strong enough to  make it worth the while of the government."  "Lord Kitchener's offer to come orrt  and^tiite^cifarge'Of th(>~c7r riTpTiigri" lias  been declined owing to Sydney Fisher  having a friend, a prominent druggist  in Chatham, Ont., who is anxious to  be given the command and whose control of votes in Punk County is of the  greatest service to the party in times  of stress and whom tie government  cannot afford to turn down. It is said  that Lord Kitchener is feeling rather  sore about il."  In case some of our Grit readers  may say tlrat we do not know what  wo are talking about (as Ihey sometimes do) and that Sydney Korrroprrt-  kin Fisher, the minister of cinch bugs  and smut ty wheat, did not scratch out  Dundonald's appointments to the 1.3th  Scottish regiment from political motives, we give Mr. Fisher's own state  ments made in the House of Commons  us it appeared in the Free Press, a  Liberal organ :  "Mr. Fisher replied that he objected  to officers whom Lord Dundonald liad  recommended because they were  Tories and relatives of Senator Baker,  the opposition leader in the district." ���������  Now, explain that away, if you can.  The passage in Lord Dundonald's  famous speech which rankles most is  this:  "1 care not, gentleman, who the  man is, whether' Ire advances one man  or penalizes another orr account of I.he  political color of his party, I say that  the man whosoever that man may lie,  is not a friend of his country."  Lord Dundonald. safe and secure in  hi.s pre-eminent and well-earned position in the British nrrny, is the only  one that has held the position of G. O.  C. in Canada who has had the courage  H. W.

Tliey spoke of famous  pictures, talked of Italy, of "Modern Painters," of tho prc-Raphaelite  brotherhood, skimmed recent literature,  drifted  on to  the mutiny   and  Lucknow,    glancpd   thence to lighter j j,gr  and camp-stool, and criticising and ���������watching the progress of  the painting.  Ono morning, while that lovely  spring* weather lasted, Jessie repaired to the appointed spot a little before the appointed hour, and  setting up hor easel and getting out  themes, operas, theatres, declined | },"g".  finally to social celebrities, gossip.  Their conversation opened a hew  and interesting world to Jessie,  who had never* listouod to cultured  talk before. She did not know that  much they said was commonplace,  much second hand, little original  and   nothing  profound:   she  had   not  a.  courtesy  to  which  she  was    littlo   enough social experience to  question  accustomed, and which she therefore more keenly appreciated. This  gratitude was not lost on Captain  Mod way, unobservant as lie appeared in his languid posture on the  grass, his whole attention claimed  by Mis3 Lonsdale, with whom he  was sopn deep irr a conversation  that  did  not  include  Jcsf-io.  "This thriii," she thought,  with    a  thrill   of  enthusiasm,   ''was     Claude  Mod way,  tits hitherto  unknown  hero  of so  many  martial adventures,    the  central    figure of so many romantic  speculations."      From the day when  the    handsome    hoy  helped  pull hcr  out  of the  pond,  he had  occupied    a  large   space    in      her     imagination.  Philip had depicted him under    various aspects  aad  in glowing colors,  until  his very  name diffused nn    atmosphere    of    chivalrous    romance.  .Accustomed  as she  was  to  the  da rice rs and vicissitudes of war  through  tho medium of Philip, who was even  now   on    most   active    service,    the  fact that, thi.s beautiful and  princely  looking mnn lying on  the grass   before  her.   and   displaying  a   courtesy  foreign  to   hor    experience,   had   actually  taken   part  iu  what  is     perhaps    the    most   chivalrous     if not  most      brilliant    episode   In  modern  war.  made her heart    beat with     a  glorious    thrill.        Philip   had often  t.een in great danger, ho must often  have  performed  a heroic  deed;     but  that famous     charge had  fired     her  imagination    as   no   other    incident  .could..       Philip,   wiio   had    actually  .������������������cer.    as much of it as was possible  to  a  soldier  in   the  ranks  on     that  rield.     and     who  had  heard  it  described  in-   detail    and discussed    by  lither eye-witnesses,  and  studied  Uie  whole     battle     scientifically      afterward, had, narrated it over- and over-  again   to   hcr,   not   forgetting    Mod-  way's    special    heroism   in  plunging  beck  under     hot    lire    to  rescue    a  wounded   man.        She had  onlv    to  colortubes, began to compare  sketch with the prospect before  her, looking at it from this point  and that with an artist's dissatisfaction. At last, laying her palette  aside in disgust, she seated herself  on her camp-stool beneath an oak  and gave herself up to a silent absorption of the pure and harmonious  flooring of the April day.  Her shawl had slipped from her  shoulders and hung gracefully about -  her, enhancing the slender grace of'"  her figure, tho lovely lines of which  were well shown by the-simple closc-  and fitting' black gown she wore, her  (small, neat  bonnet set oil the   glory  the good-breeding of totally ignoring her presence, though it revolted  her fine instincts and made her  wretchedly uncomfortable; but she  listened with absorbed interest  could havo listened longer, '.  /���������'Claude's Medway*s appearance had j ~"f bcv ]lail.( sunbeams trea moling  illuminated Clara s face and changed through ti,c budding oak-boughs  her whole bearing: sho became mil-| pInved sol-Uv ovcl.

After a whilo cJessio swallowed  Boniothing down with an effort and  turned her head slightly. "Oh. it  Is only for n time," she snid cheerfully. "India will soon bo quint,  and then I shall go out to I'hilip."  "To Randal ?" he exenimed. "Hut  ho is not really your brother ?" he  added.

Now is tho time to make plans for  the family supply of small fruits if  it has not alrcudy been done. Tho  following list has been resurrected  for the benefit of thoso who mny  profit  by it :  Strawberry   plants,   curly, medium  and lato, 800.  Blackberries,  100.  Black raspberries,  early and   lato,  50.  Hod raspberries, early and lute, GO  . Currants,  white and red,  7.r>.  Gooseberries,  25.  Grapes 18.  This is a list that has often been  recommended for a family small-  fruit garden. It is enough for one-  fourth of nn acre, which should bo  sufficient for a large family, and  leave a good margin for loss by  drouth, insects, birds nnd neighbors  chickens, besides sonic'to give away.  Not many would reduce tho number of strawberries and somo would  bo in favor of increasing tho amount  of ground devoted to this fruit. But  in regard to tho others opinions  would differ greatly.  If anything were to be stricken out  it would probably bc blackberries.  This is a fruit that docs well in the  right place, but if it does not-have  moist ground  it is  AN  UNCERTAIN PRODUCER.

Blackberries are excellent to close  thc season of small fruits, but in a  list liko this probubly half the number would bo found sufficient.  Next to  strawberries  a  good  supply of raspberries is desirable.

Tho Idea may prevail that the  main feature of nn agricultural  course is to teach boys to plow, sow  nnd reap, and to do tho other familiar manual labor of the farm.  Such instruction is chiefly necessary  for the boy from the cily, who bus  never handled a farm tool. What  the boy needs most to study is the  natural sciences which underlie all  furni practices. He needs to know  tho laws of plant life us he may  study of thcm in botany. He needs  to know the habits of insects that  destroy his fruits and vines os ho  may "study of lhem in entomology.  He needs to know of tho composition and physical properties of the  soil,-as he may study of them in  chemistry and physics. Therefore  thesej"'four * sciences have a largo  place in a course of agriculture. The  student likewise needs a knowledge  of English, history, civil government, mathematics, drawing, etc.,  he may become a well rounded  man���������a good citizen as well as a  handy man at his vocation. An  agricultural course is one of tho  most diHiglitfuI a person may follow.  Rome men sny it is the best course  in the universities which have an  agricultural department, because it  deals so intimately with the things  of every day life. -*  (������������������X^*^*****'*^-**^'*********  ;.i Fashion  $ ���������eoa   1 Hi K  "(Veil, Claude," said Clam, when  the painting materials had been  gathered together and the sketclrors  had gnne their- several ways, "whut  do you think of iny little friend ?

HOW TO CLEAN THE CHURN.-  A churn cannot bo mndo clean  with a dirty cloth, and a cloth of  this kind is one of the best known  places for breeding disease germs,  and these may bo washed, from the  soains of tho pans of corners of tho  churn.

Any farmer who depends altogether oii the seasons and hard work  for success in his .business, may  make somo sort of a living and even  increase his small capital by natural  increment, but he will never merit  the appellation of a successful farmer*. Industry i.s a good trait of  character, but often a .good degree  of that which, looks like lazirress  leads to bettirr" results. For instance, a man may bo so lazy that  ho habitually works hard on labor-  saving contrivances, by which lie can  accomplish���������greater-re.su Its-with-less-  lubor, do more and better work  with less physical exertion. Ho may  Iro so lazy that he will do no work  in a slip shod manner, for in that  ense ho would have to do the work  over again. " No farmer can bo successful ^unless ho docs a largo  amount of mental labor, and mental  labor saves physical labor, and  makes what physical is necessary  far morc effective. The very best  work at the very best timo cannot  bo done by unaided physical effort.  'I'o do such work, requires deep and  persistent study.7  HOW THEY  ACTED.

Children's fashions do not dlffor  much from those of last season, sav������  in so f,ur ns different materials and  colors aro used. Tho very long-w*ist-  ed���������abnormally und absurdly long-  wnisted���������one-piece suits are worn by  both boys and girls of tender years.  Whito is the favorite color, and pique,  linen, llnnncl and muslin aro uliko  fashionable. Piquo frocks are trimmed with bands of embroidery, with  round collars of lace or. embroidery,  or have no trimming at all.  Roys wear the ovor-populor sailor  suits, which aro nuide ou exactly the  samo lines us heretofore. Thero is  thus only the ono pattern to use, nor  do the materials differ from thoso>  used heretofore. Flannel, serge, pique  duck pud galatea, the latter very serviceable, are all omployed.  Many mothers are in doubt as to  which is most "correct," long or-  short trousers, for boys. The long  ones are thought rather smarter a������d  aro worn on more ceremonious occasions, but the short ones are so comfortable to play in that the boys generally prefer them, and they aro equally fashionable. For wear over  theso suits, tho covert or roofer nre  about' in equal favor.  Tho loose sacquo coats for small  girls aro new this season and follow  closely upon the lines of those worn  by their elders. They arc mado in  lightweight material, trimmed with  braid, nnd look best over pleated  skirts. Frocks in lawn, muslin or  thin wash materials are made with a  ruffle headod with a band of insertion,  or with tucks and insertion, a full  waist with bishop sleeves; and a  cape collar of the muslin trimmed  with rows of embroidery. Hals aro-  lavishly trimmed' with flowers,  wreaths preferred, with bows of louis-  ine or liberty satin ribbon.  -   CORESTS FOR THIN GIRLS.

Tho up-to-dnte corset for the too  slender maiden is a vision to delight  lho eye. Ils dainty flufiinoss is  enough to make hcr fat- sister envious; and, best of all, it does its business well'. ' .  The foundation of the slays is built  of the sheerest silk batiste and genuine ' whalebone. Across tho bust is a  scries of very tiny firJl pleated frills  edged,  in some cases,  with real lace.  The samo scheme is carried out  over the hips, only hero the frills are  veiled rather loosely witli plain'batiste, so that the skirts may fit with  that exquisite smoothness necessary  oven in this day of very.full skirts.  The effect of this corset on a thin  body is a glorious transformation.

His story cannot be told  within lho space of a few pages. Rut,  briefly, it is something like this :  c "When a young man he committed  a crime which caused his arrest ne  was sentenced to servo a term in  prison; but in the silent prison dnys  repentenco came, and ho determined  to live an upright life when he was  released.  "This seemed siniplo and easy  enough in imagination while in prison, but outside of the walls he found  his pathway hard and rugged. .The  taint of tho prison clung to him, and1  from one position to another be wns  forced through the discovery of his  convict past. Almost discouraged,  ho finally saved enough monoy vto  -enter business for himself in. a small  way in a provincial town. Ho pros-  pored, and in time fell in lovo with  an estimable young woman, who returned his affection. He did not feel  it his duty to inform his sweetheart  ol Iris past crime and imprisonment,  for "he feared it might separate them  for over.  "Then one day came the unfortunate incident which makes this story  ���������so heartrending to mo.- A-friend of  hin-iiancce was a relative of an .inspector at Scotland Yard, and lie  invited them to visit tho department's offices under his guidance.  They accepted the invitation, and together they went and examined the  diCcrorit 'relics of famous criminals  who had figured in crimes long sinco  forgotten.

When her father returned horn"  that afternoon ho was confronted by  his pretty daughter with tho remark :  ������������������Father, I want to visit Scotland  Yard lo-morrow. Will you get a  permit ?"  "What now? What now ?" exclaimed her father. "Studying practical  criminology ?"  Gladys smiled indifferently, but she  carried her point. Sho was anxious  to study the photograph of No. 999  in the Rogues* Gallo y. What it  would reveal to her she did not  know. Thoro was only a strong desire to seo what manner of man it  was who had weaned her lover's  sympathies  and  do lies "from hor.  Tro de.-.Ired permit was soon obtained, and next day she found herself inspecting the photographs in  the Rogues' Gallery.  Thoro was something gruesome  about the portraits which eri/ed upon Gladys with a horrible grip, and  made hor fjint and weak; but sho  steadied herself with nn effort until  hor guide halted beforo the picture  of a famous crimb al.

The face before her was younger  and less vfbrmed than that of , her  lover; but the eyes and expression  were the same. There was an  accountable weakness ' about  mouth and chin which she had never  noticed beforo. That had probably  gono wilh.the change in his life; it  had disappeared witli tho temptation  of  sin.  Gladys slowly recovered her com-  pot>uio, and she stood fascinated by  the photograph, scarcely hooding or  hearing hor guide.  "Shall we move on ?" ho asked finally.  Gladys roused herself as from a  droaiii, and answered  "Yes."  Outt-irie,- in the fiesh nir, sho  breathed eaf-ier,  and murmured '  "I see it. all now. Poor Harold I  Ho co-ild not trust mo.

"But if ho Had already reformed,"  sho asked,  "would that mako a   di-  forence ?" :  Hor mother shook her head.  " "Don't talk  of it.

How the Independent Concerns Are  Beaten Out of the  Keid.  To know every detail of the oil  trade, to bo able to roach at any moment to its remotest point, to control  oven its weakest factor���������this was  Mr. John D. Rockefellor's ideal of  doing business. It seemed to bc an  intellectual necessity for him to bo  nblo to direct tho course of any particular gallon of oil from tho moment it gushed from the earth until  it went into tho lnnip of a housewife.  Thoro must bo nothing���������nothing in  his groat machine hc did not know  to bo working right. It was to complete this ideal, to satisfy this necessity, that ho undertook, some timo  in tho lato seventies, to organize the  oil markets of th.0 world, as he had  already organized oil refining and  oil transporting.  WORLD FOR. A FIELD.  When Mr. Rockefeller began to  gather the oil markets into his hands  ho had a task wnoso field was literally the world, for; already, in 1871,  the year before ho first appeared as  an important factor in the oil trade,  refined oil wns going into every civilized country of the globe. Of the 5,-  500,000 barrels of crude oil produced  that year the world used 5,000,000,  over 3,500,000 of which went to  foreign lands. This was the market  which had been built up in tho first  ton years of business by the men who  were developing the trade, and this  was the market, still further developed, of course, that Mr. Rockefeller Inherited when he succeeded in corralling the refining and transporting of  oil. It was this market he proceeded to organize. His work in-the  United States is naturally what "interests us chiefly, as it is hero tho  organization is most perfect, and tho  competition can be traced in reliable  documents.  WELL-LAID PLANS.  The peocess of organization    soems  to have been natural and highly   intelligent.     Tho entire  country      was  buying refined      oil for- illumination.  Many refiners-had     their own agents  out looking for markets,  others sold  to wholesale dealers, or jobbers, who  un" | placed  trade with  local dealers, usu-  tlie I ally grocers     Mr.  Rockefeller's busi  ness was to replace agents and jobbers by his own employes. The United States was mapped out and agents  appoiotod over these great divisions.  To those who know anything of the  way in which Mr. Rockefeller does  business it. will go without saying  that,   this       marketing     department  Company, an independent concorn in  Philadelphia, employed a man by the  name of Buckley. This man was  discharged and" in September of that  year he went into the employ of tho  leading Standard refinery of Phila-  del 'hia, a concern known as tho at-  lantic Refining Company. According  to tho affidavit made by this man  Buckley the managers of the Standard concern some time in February,  1893, engaged him in conversation  about affairs of his late employer.  They said that if thoy could* only  find out the names of the persons to  whom their rival sold, and for what  prices, thoy could soon run him out  of business! And they asked Buckley'  if ho could not got the information  for them. After somo discussion one  if tho Standard managers said:  "What's tho matter with the nigger?" alluding to a colored boy in  tho employment of the Lewis Emory  concern. Buckley told them that he  would try him. "You can tell the  nigger," said one of the men, "that  ho needn't be afraid, because if ho  loses his position there's a position  hero for him."  BOUGHT UP-EMPLOYE.  Buckley saw tlio negro and made  a proposition to him, The boy  agreed to furnish.'the .information for  a price. "Starting from February,  1893," says 1 Mr. Buckley, "and lasting us to about August, of the same  year, this boy furnished me periodically with tho daily shipments of Lhe  Lewis Emory concern, which I took  and handed personally sometimes to  one and sometimes to the other manager. Thoy took copies of them, and  usually returned tho originals." The  negro also brought what is known as  the price book to Buckley and a complete copy of this was made by tho  Standard managers. "In short,"  says Mr. Buckley in his affidavit, "I  obtained from the negro all the inside  facts concerning tho Lewis Emery Oil  Company's business, and I furnished  them all to the Standard managers."  In return for this information the  negro lad was paid various sums,  amounting in all to about ?90. Buckley says that thoy were charged upon  the Standard books to "Special Expenses." The transaction w.as ended  by the discharge of tho colored boy  by tho Louis Emery concern.  GETS NO REWARD.  The. denouncement of this case- is  tragic enough. The concern was finally driven out of business by these  and similar tactics, so Mr. Emery and  his partner both- affirm.

But Standard Oil agents are not  sent into territory simply to sell all  the oil they can by efficient service  and aggressive pushing; thoy are sont  there to see all the oil that is bought.  "Tho coal oil business belongs to  us," is Mr. Rockefeller's motto, and  from tho beginning of his campaign  in the market his agents have accepted and acted on that principle.-  The American -Oil works, it seems,  were in 1894 shipping an oil called  "Sunlight" in barrels to South Bend,  Wash. This was tho territory of  the Standard , "agents at. Portland,  Ore., one of whom wrote to a South  Bend* dealer when ho.heard of the intrusion: "Wo' will stato for your information that never a drop of oil  has reached South .Bend of better  quality than what we havo always  shipped into that territory. They  can call it 'sunlight,' 'moonlight,' or  starlight,' it makes no difference.  You can rest aBsured*"if"an6th"er~car-  load of 'sunlight' arrives at your  place it will be sold very cheap. IVp  do not propose to allow another carload to come Into that territory unless it comes .and is put on the market at one-hnlf its actual cost. You  can convoy this idea to tho young  man who imported the carload of  'sunlight' oil."  ONLY A JOKE.  When Mr. John D. Archbold, of the  Standard Oil Company, had his attention called to this lettor by Professor Jsnks, of the Industrial Commission, Mr. Archbold characterized  tho letter as "a foolish statement by  a foolish and unwise man," and  promised to investigate it. Later ho  presented the commission with an explanation from the superior of tho  ngent, who declared that the writer  of tho letter did not havo any authority to say that oil would be  sold on the basis mentioned. "The  letter," he continued, "was intended  to be written in a jocular manner to  deny a claim that he was selling oil  inferior in quality to .that sold by  others." It is-hard for the' mere  outsider to catch the jocularity of  the letter, and it must have been  much more difficult for the dealer who  received it  to appreciate it.  GOING A LITTLE FAR.  Thc system resrrlts every now and  then, naturally enough, in flagrant  cases of bribing employes of the independents themselves. Where the  freight oflice does not yield the information tho rival's own office may,  nnd certainly if it is legitimate to  got it from one place it is from the  other. It is not an unusual thing for  independent refiners to discharge a  innn whom they have reason to "���������believe gives confidential information to  the Standard.

They may bo shifted around t*o do  "dirty work," as the " oil regions  phrase goes, but .they are p'ariahs in  the concern. Mr." Rockefeller knows  as well as any man ever did the vital  necessity of honesty in an organization, and the Buckleys and negroes  who bring "the secret "intelligence  never get anything but money and  contempt  for their pains.  For the general public, absorbed  chiefly in the question, "how does all  this effect what we aro paying for  oil?" the chief point of interest in  the marketing contests is that,-aftor  they are over, tho p'rico of oil always  goes back with a jerk to tho point  whero it was when Hie cutting began,  and not infrequently" it goes higher���������  the public pays.���������McCluro Magazine.  RUSSIA'S MD!-TRIALS  CZAR'S    ARMY     IS      PROVING  DIFFICULT TO HANDLE.  Deserters    Shot    Without Mercy ���������  Conscription 13 Considered  a Gurse.  Letters received b.v Russian Jews  in New York from correspondents iu  Wiina and olher places in Russian  Poland, show that Russia i.s having  unprecedented'trouble with its army  at home, us well as that which tho  littlo Jnps arc causing it in tho far  cast. Never beforo. Buy iheso correspondents, have desertions from tho  ranks been roported in such numbers,  and never have tho military authorities used such stringent measures to  repress dessert ions und to punish de-  dcrters when caught. The Jewish  soldiers form tho majority of theso  deserters. Only a few days ngo a  Jewish,deserter was shot in the presence of tho garrison in Wilna, after  having been brought back from the  frontier when ho wns almost on Gorman soil. Wilna is ono of the big  military depots of Russia. To Wilna  aro. annually sent many thousand of  recruits to be drilled nnd from henco  tho new soldiers are sent to various  regiments all oyer the empire and into the regions where Russia is lighting. And Russia is, liko England,  always lighting. The big war in tho  far easl overshadows all the other  troubles of tho bear, but thero is  scarcely ever a timo wncu thero is  not a minor war or two'* being prosecuted by Russia somewhere along the  extent of  HER EASTERN BORDERS.  Wliile it is true that the Jews in  Russia aro coming forward with men  and money to help tlieir country in  this the hour of its need, it is none  tho less the fact that the moss of  the Russian Jews regard the enforced  conscription of young Jews into the  army as one of the greatest curses  inflicted upon tl'cm by a despotic  government. When so littlo is given  them in the way ot civic rights and  evon civic justice, it seems lo them  high-handed despotism to requiro  thoir young men to "givo up their  limo and labor in peace, and their  time and thoir blood in war, for the  country that gives them so littlo in  return.. The day of "Prisivc," or  anual conscription day, in which Lho  young Jews are gathered together  and taken to the military depots is a  day of weeping and lamentation in  tho Ghettos of Russia. On this day  military officer.*! open conscription  headquarters    in every town and vil-  twolve soldiers wero ordered into the  firing narty, and whilo they were  loading their guns tho regimental  bunds wero playing. The condemned  man Was placed against a blank  wall, pinioned, and while tho bands  wero still playing the order to firo  was given  and he was  shot down.  "Cursed bo the country that so  treats us! O God, I shall never forget the Bcene. I cannot remain in  such a land."  Which seems to hint at another desertion, in spite of tho object lesson  tho writer received.  IflTELLIGfEBOE OF FISHES  HOLT FLAGS OF EUSSIA  RUSSIANS      TAKE      THEM  THE BATTLEFIELD.  TO  WISDOM  OF TEE  LOWER  ANIMALS.  SEA  Interesting     Examples ��������� Feeding  Captive Fish���������Migrate Like  Birds.  In the New Yark Aquarium tlio  other day, L. B. Spencer, ono of the  best, known of the attendants, was  discussing the remarkable intelligence  exhibited by fish. -.  "Tho moro I know about fishes,"  said Mr. Spencer, "and tho longer I  study them, the more respect I havo  for thorn. They-know a great deal  moro than you'd have any idea they  do.  "I made this remark to a friend of  mine not long ngo and he said: "Oh,  nol You mean, don't you, that the  moro you know about human nattrre  the more respect you have for fishes?"  "But what I mean was that there is  a remarkable amount of intelligence  in fishes, even in the lowest orders of ,  sea lifo, in soa-anemoucs and corals,  for cxnmplc���������you seo specimens of  them in tho balanced aquaria over  thero. Tt is the same intelligence  only dfTcring in degree, as we find in  higher animals, each order of life  having that degree adapted to its  special needs:.  "Now look at these sea-anemones.

In a slate ot captivity they must rely for their food upon man, who passes down to thorn a  bit of clam or oyster on the point of  a stick. When the food is lirst offered to tlrem in this unusual way the  anemones show fear, for in their natural habitat they are not accustomed  to dead objects; to them this combination    of stick   and    dead clam  Eritish    Troops   in Soutli    Africa  Left Their Battlefiags  at  Home.  Among the many old-fashior.ed customs still in vogue in Russia is thnt  of tarrying flags on thc battlefield,  and tho standard presented by tho -  Czar t!:o other day to the Siberian  Rifles will to defended to the lust by  tho bravest  cf thc regiment.  The Hags carried by. the various ro-  giments of the Rus^inn Army nro  gorgeous -'affairs, richly decorated  wilh embroidery, each bearing a picture of the patron saint of the particular territorial district of tha  corps. Those flags arc regarded as  doubly sacred by tho Russian r-old-  lers, inasmuch a.s ihey not only  form a rallying point, but ever hold  before their eyes a symbol of tho  religion of the country. And tho  Russian peasant solcior is deeply religious.  SURVIVAL OF OTHER DAYS.  Nowadays, however, the carrying  of a standard or colors in warfare is  an anachronism. It is the survival  of ancient days, when men fought  with the sword. The battla flag was  then thc signal by which an army  advanced, held its ground, or retired. Modern fircuiiis have made tlre-  uso of colors rmpossible in tho field,  for they would only act as a drawback' to rapid skirmishing, and,  moreover, would provide a prominent mark on which the enemy could  range his artillery.  Rut that is nothing to thc Russian military authorities, who still  depend on tho sheer weight and  numbers of thoir men to bear down  the enemy. If oire battalion is shot  down, what mailers lt ? Thero aro  many more to follow thn piicst-  blcst flag.  Tho batllo flag originated in the  Middle Ages. Although before that  timo drapery was uted to docorato  military standards of various metals  it was not until the prarticc of heraldry had ' attained definite niomcn-  claturo that anj thing appeared in  the shape of a flag in Uie modern  sense.  SOME FAMOUS STANDARDS.  "At tho Battle of the Standard in  1138, the English standard was an  imposing structure. Jt was formed  of thu mast of a ship, on the top of  which was a silver pyx, together  with  three  sacred  banners  de-licated  lage.

And thero have been cases- Jjnown  where young Jewish conscripts havo  starved themselves into a decline bo-  for'i the "day of "Prisivc," or have  counterfeited illness in order to escape  conscription.  For tho young Jew goes inlo the  army without illusions. Tho older  and orthodox and more conservative  of his race support and encourage the  enlisting of Jews���������especially in this  crisis���������with the idea that in doing so  the Russian will be taught that the  Jew is a p.atriolic subject, one who  has the lovo of country at heart, one  who should bo given, afler showing  ho deserves it, full civic justice.

Bitter feelings of  hostility between Chr-istiun and Jewish soldiers are beLi'tiyod in frequent  squabbles in the barracks here'." One  letter from JCovno describes the  shooting of a Jewish deserter. The  letter was from a srildior. "J have  witnessed a scenn'," he: writes, "which  T shall novor forget.

The standards of.tlie  North Amc* icon Indians, on tho  other hand, were simply poles fledged  wilh feathers.  CUSTOMS AS TO COLORS.'  In timo of war the colors of the  B i'.ish regiments���������thc engineers and  artillery have none��������� are consigned  for safe keeping in the town halls of  the various tenitori!-.! depots, but in  time of peace they take a prominent  part in ceremonial parades. Tho  colors have no sacred devices on  them. They are simply thc King's  color���������a Union Jack with tho number of the regiment thereon��������� nnd tho  regimental color, decorated v,ith tho  names of the battles in which tiro 1 regiment has taken part. Talking of  colors, one regiment, tho Highland  Light Infantry, is the only British  corps with three flags.  Long beforo the time when Saga  were carried to battle, the bannerettes, pennons, or standards wero  used for military purposes In camps,  particularly in pointing out the tents  of the headquarteis staff, and the  various lines and di\ifions of tho  encampment.

That touch  now  means food    and    the    anemone  reaches out eagerly toward it."  'feeding OF FISHES.  "The movements and actions of tho  lower orders of life are , mainly a  matter of food. .Animals take great  risks at the promptings of hunger.  So will men, for that matter, as I  know from my experience in tho 'civil  war.  In regard to their feeding, wo observe many interesting things about  fisher*. Take the unlmon family, for  example. Thoy generally are fed with  live killios. Whon some of those arc  thrown into the tank the salmon at  onco dart after them. The first move  tho killie makes for saft-ty i.s to swim  up to tho top of tho tank, where he  hugs the back wall as closo as he can.  Presently Mr. Salmon spies him there  and makes ready for a drive. But before ho roaches the wall ho stops, and  you can imagine him saying to himself: 'I've run into that wall before  and hurt my snout, and you can bet  your life I'm not going to do it  again."  "On thc sido tlio kiilies show a  good deal of sense. They will jump  out of harm's way 0:1 top of tho  wire strainer at the back of tlie tank  and stay there, half a dozen of them,  tall to snout, as closo as thev can  get. wilh never n Cop for perhaps 1  half an hour.  MIGRATORY FISH.  Mi;. Dc. Nyse, who looks after tho  "salt- water-flsli_ln_tllo~aquarium��������� says  thore is a striding analogy between  tho movements of fish ������'n the ocean  and thoso ot birds on land.  "Migratory fish," hc sr}ys, "como  north in the spring in great shoals.  After arriving hero thoy pair off and  scatter about in bays, creeps and  estuaries, where thoy stay during tho  breeding neasori. Wh?n the fall approaches llioy osflsmble again aad  move southward in large shoals, just  ns they camo. When mjgrating, birds  usually fly high, coming lower when  it blows hard. In calm weather migrating..fish'., swim near tlio surface,  but when it is rough and stormy they  swim deeper."  ELECTRIC  WA3FAB.E.  Tho Many Uses  to Which Electricity is Now Put.  ORIGIN OF HAIL.  Why It Usually Occurs in the Summer Time.  Soft hail consists of minute snowballs, and true hail, or hard pellets  of ice, of alternate concentric layers  of ice and snow, varying in size from  peas to dangerous stones of several  pounds' weight.  An interesting instance of the rapid  extension of tho use of electricity is  furnished by its use in warfare. A  few years ago electric light was introduced to add to tho comfort of the  garrisons und to provide better illumination of tho works. Electric  fans havo been put iu lo ma!.** tho  living quarters more comfortable iu  hot weather, and olectric motors have  been adopted for training thc guns, a  class of work for whicli they are particularly well adapted. Searchlights  have been installed, enabling a fortification to sweep the sea nt    night.  The various posts of the fortresn  aro connected together by telephone,  so that the commandant is in touch  at all times with the entire garrison,  and can instantly transmit orders to  any point. The fortifictlions along  the coast arc linked by telephone and  telegraph, so that, on thc appearance  of the enemy at any point, all the  fortifications would be informed of it.  I    Submarine-mines       arc      controlled  Ferroln theory  is  generally accept-  electrically;  and even the guns     mav  cd.

Raindrops, suspended  for a lime in the snowy region. .' are  frozen, and if thrown beyond tho influence, of the in-current they fall to  tho ground as soft hail. Should they  be carried into the vortex they ascend  through tl-o rainy region, are coated  with moisture, mount to Urn colder  region where ico is formed, and finally fall to the earth.
