ARROWHEAD'S  The Gateway Town in a Flourishing Condition���������Saw Mills  now in Full Operation���������The  New Union Hotel.  The town of Arrowhead is flourishing at the present time. With the  Big Bend Lumber Company's and  Arrowhead Lumber Co's -mills, now  in full operation turning out lumber,  lath'anrl shingles, employing large  forces of men who make their head-  quarters at Airo'whead, which naturally makes it. a very important point  commercially. A large number of  private residences are in. course of  election and others -contemplated for  the benefit of the employees of the  mills. The town too is well supplied  with stores, tliere being three general  stores. Thore ate also throe hotels,,  tlie last to he erected and opened being  the Union Hotel, which is three  stories high and litis accommodation  for ahout fifty guests On the ground  lloor is the dining room, combined  office and sitting room, bav room,  kitchen and pantry. The first floor  Iras tL very neat tind tasty parlor and  ten large, comfortable bed rooms.  The top floor also contains ten bed  rooms, besides linen and clolhes  closets. The house throughout is fni-  nisircd in first class style, '.he whole  being of the very best. Mr. XV. J.  Lighthurne is the manager and is well  and favorably known to the travelling  public. Mr. D. McCarthy of this city  was tlie builder of the hotel.  Colleen Bawn.  Tuesday next is known wherever the  British flag flies as "Empire Day'* bul  locally its importance is enhanced  because orr the evening of thnt day the  delightful Irish play entitled "Colleen  Bawn" will be reproduced by home  talent; in this case we feel it to he  almost supartlu'ous to suggest the advisability of patronizinghome industry  yet would consider ourselves recreant  to out* duties were we to refrain from  calling the attention of oui' readers to  ihe fact that the industry "of the cast  ought to ensure them (as no doubt it  will) a packed house. -     - ."���������    --  " :-"At' tliis,juncture .wc dp not intend to  make any allusions tu individual members bf the company contenting out-  selves with the' extension of hearty  congratulations to- Momus oir the intensity of the devotion of his numerous votaries nevertheless having been  accorded the privilege of viewing  those features which, somewhat like  the ft ame to a picture, materially aid  tlie assurance of a success to wit: the  scenes that are to be used in the various acts we deem it opportune to make  a few comments thereon.  .  Jn all theie are 14 scenes but it is  not our intention to describe them in  detail only touching upon tlie principal ones," and that briefly, ,so that,  instead of detracting from pleasures  anticipated we may create, if possible,  a still stronger determination to go,  see and criticize.  Tor Oiegan, the home of the Ctegan  family is the subject of the first scene  and, situated as it is on the banks of  classic Lake Killarney, upon whose  waters the moon casts its rays lighting  up a path of silvery sheen, affords a  fitting theme for poetical rhapsody,  to those however ot more prosaic turn  tbe at list's work will commend itself  because of accuracy of detail as well as  adherence to fact." It is an exact copy  of a, photograph taken hy one who  shall be nameless, sooth to say, however, he has kissed the original Blarney stone.  "Tne Old Weir Bridge" is another  scene whicli could bc'well and briefly  "dtfsci'ibed"by-the-additioniof-thC"letter.  "d"' to "Weir" transposed.!: Tlioaitist  in this instance whilst depicting an  old scene plainly proves that he is also  up-to-date as iill 1 constant readers of  "The Trainmen's Journal" must acknowledge as it is a reproduction of a  photograph that appeared in a recent  issue of that well known journal.  "The Devil's Island. Cave" is peculiarly appropriate to the incidents that  trnnspiie-whilst this is in evidence,  incidents upon which-we make no  comment now yet are confident that  in our next issue w'e shall be able to  tell our readers "Told y.ou so."  Tlie last scene "The ball room in  Cuslle Chute" is in our estimation the  beat devised and the most cleverly  executtd. Ascending a flight of  stairs is the balcony, at the back is  ticllis woifk tlirough which the light  of the moon filter s, this we will not  describe further only adding that it is  rrot a copy but iin original design by  the artist Air. T. H. Dunne, the excellency of whose work, accomplished  during his spare time in the past  month certainly entitles him to a full  measure of honest praise, having left  no stone uuttr-ned 10 make Colleen  Bawn au artistic as well as a dramatic  success and it is our belief that Mr.  Dunne as a scenic pninter has no  superior in Canada to-day..- We must  not fail to mention that Mr. Dunne  had thc assistance of an able understudy in his son Percy some of whose  work is.woi-thy of attention but space  forbids.

Two tables the.full length'o'f  the hall were tastefully set out, a mini  bei\of plants in bloom adding much to  the beauty of   the"sceiie.: ,;Tli.e .repast  was most substantial' and thoroughly  enjoyed by.all.

Nelson, May 10.���������Joseph .Tac(|iiiin.  aged eight years, was drowned lust  evening under distressing circinnstan-  cs. A little brother, Louis, aged six  years, was. playing on a raft in the  'lake at Bogustown, and by accident  fell overboard. Joseph at once went*  to his, assistance, jumping into the  water, although he was'.not able to  swim. When he came to the surface  for the second time he shouted: "Save  my little brother.":.  A" number of men near-by hurried  to tlie scene of the accident, and three  plunged in to save the lads. They  succeeded in rescuing Louis, the  .youpger, before he was drowned.  Joseph, however, got. under the logs,  and it was 15 minutes before his body  wtis recovered. All efforts to resuscitate him were abortive.  The lttds had a great affection for  each other and were inseparable.  Louis is inconsolable over the loss of  his hi'i ther.  '. jr. Jr. Jr. Jr. ."jr*. .*t*������ .**)*. .'I*. Jr. .Hf*. ff.

But Maria  held him to lis promise���������and, thereby, sigi.e'd hor own death-warrant.  Cordor set about his dreadful purpose in the most methodical manner  poss-ible. To uso his own words-  uttered, of course, long afterword���������  he "was not. going to leave anything  to diance."  He dot ided to shoot the girl in the  Red Barn, the biggest granary on  his farm, and to bury her bo'dy within the bid ding; arrd to this end Ire  carried thither a spado, a pickaxe,  ond a pistol.  Then he waited on old Marten, and  expre sed his willingress to redeem  his oft-repcato'd promise by marrying  Ma'ia "straigl t off the reel."  Only, lo insisted, llternliaif must,  te I*opt an absolute >e~rot' from his  reoplc, and to that cn'd it ��������� must be  a marriage by license, and not by  ba1 ns.  Pe aslo'J, therefore, that Marin  should quit her father's house in tho  ea ly niorning, disguised in male attire. She was then to repair, by a  Co iows and unftcquented loutc,  the Red Ba*n, where she could don  hor own clcthes, and whence he  would convey her in a chaiso. which  le had in readiness, to Jpswiih Par-  ifch  Church.  T* c gi I did os sho was hi ', full  of joy ot the thought-that she was  going at last'to "be made an honest  woman of," and unsuspicious of evil.  But first she took farewell of her  family, "for," she said, "our honeymoon is likely to he a long one."  As a matter of fart, however, Cor-  <?er reappeared in the course of the  revt tvvo or three days: but, of  course, without Maria. To tie an-  ���������vious i'ltpi ies of her mother and  father le replied that' sho was well  and happy, and ho explained her.  non-rctvrn by saying that, now sho  was lis wife, she wished to sever all  connection with the vi'lage which  had been the scene nf her shnmc. Also, as a  fui ther ica^on, he sal'd _h'e  hnd  distance,"* lest  his  mother  might  get  to  hear  (f  thc  nrariin-c.  Tl.i* was in May, 1827, and things  continued in pretty mutli tho same  stato unf'l the middle of tin* following Se; tcrnhcr.. Then Cordor, declaring he would be royarated from  "lis ('a'li-g Maria" no longer, quitted Siuljolk with the averred object  of rcioiiiing le--.  Brfjre leaving he drew all his  ready money, amounting to about  ������4.00,. from the local bank. JTo al-o  bad the Red Barn crammed full tb  the rafters with form produce.  Subroquently  severol   letters    wore  re* rived  by I is  mofcr,  as  well     as  ~ "by "the-: Mart ensp_an"d?~in_the.'-e���������latter  he stated  that  he  wns living     with  Maia in the Isle of Wight.  But it was remarked that the envelopes invar iably, bore the London  po'-tmark, and strange surmises-and  sis-i'. iois began to be entertained-in  comouuence. It wits, too, considered a curious thing that rro personal  communi ation had been ie'-*oived  from the nowly-wc-J'de'd  "wife."  Tho parents of tho unfortunate girl  were, howevor, still boiicfnJ, until  about the middle of the month of  .March,; 1828. Then Mrs. Ma-ten  dreamt,- on three successive nights,  tliat l.er daughter bad ' been murdered,  and  buried in  the  Rod Barn.  Each dream, sho declared, was  identical.- She saw the'tragedy pass  before hcr sleeping eyes as though  she woro awake and actually witnessing it. And sho; described minutely  the exact"rp'ot beneath which the  body lay hidden, the wounds that  , would be discovered upon it, aiid  the ;< "clothing irr wliieli it would be  found attired.  For a lime her husband laughed jj.fc'  what he deemed her "superstitious  faith in dreams"; but at length. "Ip  euro her mind," lo repaired to the  Red Barn, which had been by tliis  lime emptied of grain, and dug at  tho spot indicated in tho tbidcc-re-  pcalod  vision.  And there, sire enough, lay tho  ho,:y of his unhappy 'daughter, rrrti-  .<Haled in exactly the fashion bis  wife had foretold, and attired-���������as  Mrs. Marten hnd said it. would bo attired���������in shift, petticoat,- and corsets.     ;"��������� ���������''".���������'  Naturally thc cxriI einent In tho  neighborhood wns Intense. An  iu-  tp.'o I. was held. ir. verdict, of' wilful  murder was returned, ngniiii't Cordor,  and Ho officers of JuoUce wok.- put  upon his truck. But for a long timo  .l-.u eluded pursuit.  Tn fact, it seenred ns if ho ha'd  vanished into 'thin air, and the detectives engaged upon the cnr.o wero  almost in despair, when quite by accident,, it came to their knowledge  that ii person answering to his description had some timo previously  inserted a. matrimonial advertisement  in  a London paper.  Following up this slender clue, tlie  polico succeeded at length in running  I im to earth at Grove House Academy, near Brentford, where, in conjunction with u wife, whom he had  married about five months previously, be was carrying on a school for  young laVties.  Thc house ho Iind caused to be  Varred and fenced in such a wny that  ingress or egress, without tbe owner's rorini sion, was alike exceedingly ifitlicult, und the ofllcors argued  from this that ho meditated a desperate resistance.  Thoy therefore hud recourse to a  little stratagem. One of them, a  man named Lea, represented that ho  liad a.daughter whom he wished to  put t.o school there, and by that  means obtained admission and an interview.  Cordor received his visitor in tho  breakfast-room, where were bis wife  and th Co other ladies. TTo was in  I is dressing-gown, and before bim on  the table lay his watch, with which  he  was  timing  the boiling  of     some  *-*������gS'  The officer at once revealed his identity, and, having drawn Corcfer on  one side, informed liim that no held  a'warrant for his arrest on n charge  of murdeiing a young woman mimed  Maria Marlon, lately residing at  Polstead,  Suffolk.  Thc murderer denied his identity,  and made as if to leave tho room,  but was promptly secured. Tho bouse  wns then tearched, and a brace of  pi tols wero found in a small velvet  tag, " such as la'cios wero wont at  that time to earry suspended from  ilicir girdles.  This bug was later on identified by  Mrs. .Marten us having been in the  possession of lier daughter when she  quitted tho house for the last timo.  A further examingtion of Grove  House also brought to light, con-  coaled be" ind thc wainscoting, a  sharp-pointed dagger; and this was  sw,orn to by a person named OITord,  a cutler, cf rolitead, as being one  he bad ground for the prisoner only  a- 'day or two prior to tiio presumed  date'of the committal of the crime.  Thc trial took place at Bury St.  Edmund's, beforo Lord Chief Justice  Alexander, amid such scenes of public excitement ns had never bcon witnessed before in that part of the  country. So much as ������50 was offered for a seat in court, and on the,  morning of tbo opening day although rain was, falling heavily,  thoittands of persons besieged the  Court House from live o'clock in the  morning.  -Tic defence s:et up by Cordor was  almost- identical with, that raised  to It he-oilier day by tho miscreant "Dou-  gal,_to account for tho' death of  Miss Holland at tho Moat Farm.

He could not hold  his social position otherwi e,' as tho  Czar does not pay liis officers     any  JAPANESE WOMEN IN WAE  DEEDS  LIKE   THOSE  OF  WOMEN OF SPARTA.  THE  of Russian advance into that region  Situated an a gentle elope of I.i.Is,  on a curve of the Golden Horn, the  city is so screened as to bo entirely  concealed froth without the harbor.  Owing to. tho strategical position of  the many small islands lying in and  about the harbor heavy pieces of  ordnance havo been mounted on commanding* and advantageous points  to insure safely from a sea attack.  While in tho city the writer counted  forty-three fortified positions pro-  tecting  THE HARBOR ENTRANCE.  Vladivostock (prounced Vlod-ovo-  stock) is essentially a port of and  for the Russians. This is manifested  in a marked degree by tlie absence  ol English-speaking t-lerls in the  hotels and commercial houses, which  is not the cas.e in any otiier part of  the Orient. Tho Russians do nol  encourage immigration of aliens, but  supplement tiie population by send  ing numbers of their own peoplo out  either by. steamer or across Siboiia  by tho great railroad.  Tl.o city has probably the poorest  hotel accommodations in tho East.  Thoso places look sumptuous and  comfortable from without, but experience - and contact within tires.*  self-stjled liosteiiies has unmistakably proved that the Muscovite hns  yet much to learn concerning the  managing of hotels. Tho English-  speaking traveler enters the hotel to  discover to his chagrin that tho  hotel start has not been "coached  even in the simplest English " mono-  syliablos.

Vladivostock is a military city.  Commercial houses thrive there.  Asiatic aliens have settled in great  numbers, but* above the clattering of  comme co, the confusion of tongues.  ! the click of machinery, is heard thn  voice of thc military. The houses of  the lower classes are particularly  squalid and dirty; justly litted to  slid ter those whose ideas on cleanli  Just the reverse to the officer is  the Russian soldier, an inherent disciple of filth, dirt ond squalor. He  is irregular of feature" arid big nf  physique, but bis stupidity'is most  pronounced; and strongly verifies the  fact of govermental r.e.ilect cf tho  lower clu������ses in the matter of education. But stupi'lity, however, bus  its moments of relaxation,  oven in  A RUSSIAN SOLDIER,  brutish nn'd ignorant as ho is. The  foi owing incident, which happened in  Vladivo tock during tho writer's sojourn there, will tend to illustrate  the feelings of animosity against the  Jnpunese which at present prevail  throughout Siberia and Manchuria.  There were numbers of Japanese in  Vladivostock following vatious vocations, and short as they are, thoy  were not too small in stature to be  seen and ferreted out by Russian  soldiers, who took fiendish delight in  handling thcm roughly nnd intimidating them. Ono afternoon, a  short time ugo, a big burly Russian trooper, coarse and bloated in  faie and figure, and a beard that  none   but a    Russian   cla'o   exhibit, ,  strutted up   to a little, almond-eyed   arc not lacking in patriotic devotion,  brown man on one of the main roads      There is an anecdote concerning the  Loss  of Son or Husband    For the  Mikado  Is   Accounted  An Honor.  No nation has a better right to bo  proud of what its women have dorro  in wartime than Japan. Even thc  mothers and wives of ancient .Sparta  have been rivalled in deeds of patriotism and sclf-sucrif.ee by tho women  of Japan. **  In the feudal times, which camo to  an entl in .Japan only thirty years  ago, all gentlewomen were trained in  this use of the sword and Innce. Tho  women of the samurai class received  a regular military education antl if  the castle of a dainrio w,os besieged,  thoy wero capable of assisting in the  defence if necessary,  A noted instance of tho martini  prowess of tho Japanese women occurred during tho siege of tho castle  of Wal.-nn.atsu in 1809, where the  .Shogun mndo his final stand against  the forces of the Mikado. .Nearly  ona thousand women and girls bo-  lontring to the families of sttmurui at-  snch'ed to tho Shogun fought behind  the barricades and on the castle  walls. Many of them wero killed in  battle, while not a few committed  suicide rather than undergo the humiliation of defeat.  Vot tho Amazonian finalities of tho  women of old Japan did not detract  from their womanliness. They wero  tender mothers and loving wives. Tho  nursinrr of tho wounded and sick vvas  part of the education of every samurai woman.  With tho passing away of tho age  of chivalry in Japan, upon tho downfall of the Shogunate, the Japanese  woman was called upon to face new  conditions, and how she mot these  conditions is shown in the history of  the  CHINESE WAR OF 1895.  It is a matter of record that some  10,000 Japunese women volunteered  to get to thc front ns nurses in the  field hospitals at the outbreak of tho  Chinese wnr, and advices from Japan  state that tho number ol womon volunteering to go to tho front as nurses to-day is greater than in 1895.  But  tho  women     who  stay  at  homo  might prove worthy of the honor of  wearing tho Mikado's uniform.  One day, when the old woman was  returning to hor home from the temple, sho met a messenger who told  her thnt her son had been killed in  tho  attack     on  Port   Arthtf. The  mother's eyes grew    dim with  tears,  and she swayed unsteadily for a moment.     Then  sho  turned  and  to go back to the temple.  "Where aro you going?" cried the  messenger. "Don't yorr understand  what I sayV Your son has boen  killed."  ���������'Vis. 1 understand." said the old  woman, calmly, "and I nm going to  thank Ojin for tho honor ho has conferred upon me."  Tho Japunese woman who above  nil others distinguished herself in  wnrtiiro was the Kinpross Jingtt Ko-  go, who led a Japanese army in person to Corea irr 203 A.I), and conquered   that  country.     Sho  was onu-  HON.  AUGUSTUS   C    GREGORY.  He Is Termed the v-'r&nd Old Man  of Australia.  Thore was a jubilation in Queensland on the last birthday of tho  "tlrand Old Man" of that state.

The fallowing on lhe lumbering industry of the province, from I In* News  Ailvci-tix'i-, will I.-.* of |i,'itifii!.ti- inlcresl  to IlKiiAI.D readers:  ������������������The* attention of the potipli* in Hi it-  i.sh I'oluiiibia. especially   in   lhe  const  di.-t riots, is being direct ed to lire serious  po.-iiton of the lumber industry, one of  the most important of our provincial  industries,  ll is beginning to  be realized that lhe situation is one that concerns  the   general   public   almost   as  much as it does  those directly   interested iu the industry.   Indeed there  is  a large class which il concerns almost  more thatl it dues tlreniillovvnor.s.   The  latter can. if compelled by  the  unfavorable situation, shut down their mills  . and wait for more favorable cMiditions,  meanwhile, of courso,  getting  no  return from their in vestments i" mill and  ' timlier limits.    But   the  thousands of  employees deprived of   their means of  livelihood are  in  a  far  worse  plight.  Other occupation it  would  In; almost  impossible to secure and  in  the event  of any long continued cessation of  op-  peration of the mills,   tliere   would .hu  no alternative but to  "pull up stakes"  and     seek     employment     elsewhere.  AVliat.th.it   implies, only   those who  are immediately affected  fully understand.     And   then   to  those must be  ���������  stdcled   the   tradesmen and-merchants  arrd a host of others interested in various   businesses   that are subsidiary to  tbe lumber industry.    To a very great  extent the rapid growth of Vancouver  during   the   last three  years  may hu.  attributed to  the great increase in tlio.  number of saw  and shingle mills that  has   been   established  hero.    It is not  difficult, therefore, to sou how important it is to the whole  community that  the   lumber industry, should  be  in a  prosperous condition.  The present unsatisfactory condition  of   the   industry is  the result  of .two  ���������  causes. One of these is the demoralised  condition of prices in tbe export trade:  ,   ll may seem  paradoxical  to say. thai  this has been  brought about to.some  extent by the  low range of prices, but-  it is a fact.     Buyers abroad, are afraid  ' to   buy, fearing   that prices will   fall  still further and   to"protect themselves  they demand reductions  that it is impossible to concede.    This '-condition of  the  export   business  it is, of   course,  beyond  the power of (lie Govern ment  or anyone else to relieve, lint the other  cause of the present depression is different and that is tbe manner in whicli  our home markets  are being invaded  by American millowners. In Washington'and  Oregon   ihu  industry  is in a  depressed   condition,   owing     to   bad  foreign markets and tlie collapse of the  demand in California and the "Western  States. -'The American manufacturers  are   endeavoring  to get tbe   railway  rate to St.  Paul  of -10 cents per hundred pounds extended to points on the  Missouri Kiver, and by thus extending  the   area   of    their   possible   market,  enable them to dispose of some of their  surplus.     Jn tbe meantime while they  can sell the tipper grades of lumber tit  home, they cannot dispose of the coin  ruon  grades arrd  tbey arc*   ���������'dumping'' (  this part of  their output into the Canadian North West at slaughter prices.  The   millowners   of British Columbia  ���������^^havc-1 Ii e���������sa ni e���������d i rncn I fcy^-i 11-ursposi 11 g  of   their   common   grades of   lumber.  There is some protection for tiie upper  grades and in any case American competition does  not   all'ect theni but our  iriilU have not  a  siijlicicut market for  the   common   grades atul then on the  top ol"  that  tiit-y have this fierce competition from tire L'nifeil  States in the  Canadian  market.     That  is  tbe situation  and   unless some rcu.edy can be  found lhe mills must ct-.ase. operations.  Tire common grades amoiuit to SO | i.-r  cent of  the lumber  produced and it Is  impossible to   continue   a   business in  ���������which only 20  per cent of  the production can be  marketed.    A  market can  be found for these  lower grades in the  2***orth   AY" est   Territories   and it is for  the purpose of conserving that market  for Canadian mills  that the assistance  of the Government is asked.    Surely it  is the dirty of any government to pie-  serve   its   domestic   markets   for   the  home producer.     The  Dominion Government has just intimated its willingness to grant subsidies for tiie promotion of trade with .Mexico.     The trade  in lumber from I'acific Coast points lo  Mexico amounts to  about nine: million  feet  annually.     The   market   in   tliu  North 'West Territories for our lumber  were   it   preserved   for  the Canadian  producer, would be about nine millions  monthly, or   about   twelve   times   as  great its tbe Mexican market which, in  any   case,  we   must   share   with   the  American mills,    fs it not worth while  therr to  make .some ell'orl to preserve  for Canadian mills and Ca nad inn labor  the. home* market in the Territories?  The protection asked would not raise  the present price. It i.s not a higher  price that tlie millowners are seeking  ! bu! an <  i ol linni  RailwayMen's Journal, jr-mim..*!.. operate ihci.* mm.*, i^-.-i  ' .-ripposi.ig j.hi' price were raised I Wo  dollars per tliou-and liv!, the additional oust, ���������t!> tho North West sell lei* fertile lumber he uses would be very  lit lie; insignilicant. indeed, as con.par  oil wiih the oul cry Ihal ban been  raised .���������ibiutl the ni.-i!

A comparison of lhe maimer in  which the North Wcsl fanner aiul lhe  1 hit isl i Coin ii . bia mil lowlier arc respectively trealed riiKlcr tht* present t.-irili*  i.s interesting and ius| rucli* e. The  fanner has prolectiou on every item  of agricultural produce nnd when tin;  inillo'.viier buys (be .supplies for his  logging camps be. lias (o pay the duty  in tin* price thai, thi: farmer obtains  for his wheat and oats, his bay ami  grain, hi.s beef and daily products.  Hut when tbe Canadian lriinbei mail  merely asks that he shall hrm; tbe  same protection from "the American  lumberman that the.latter has uiuliM-  the United States 'l.'arilf froni bis Caiir.  lulinn competitor, the Canadian is nu't-  with the assertion that this caniiol.be  granted because the Norlh" West  fanner must have lumber at the lowest possible price, whether it is'from  Canadian or American mills.  Now if the duty was taken oft' agricultural products the Canadian liiin-  iiei-maii would be greatly benefitted.  Iio could buy bis supplies much cheaper in Washington uml Oregon���������were  there no duty on ��������� them���������than he can  (loin Manitoba aud the North West  Territories. Tire difference in tho  prices of agricultural produce on the  two sides of Ilie 'Boundary is also another difficulty that the -Canadian  lumberman has .to-meet in the competition with his American rival. But  be is prepared to meet all these difficulties if the Canadian market is con.  served for Canadian lumber.  ..Protection in the sense usually.tip.  plied to that teriu is not sought. As  long asCanadian lumber has to pay a  duty eif .$2 por thousand' feet .on being  imported ��������� into the United States, so  loiig should American lumber "divsubjected to.the same duty on coming into Canada. Fair play and equality is  all that; -but* .lumbermen ask and. this  should lici.longer be denied then..':  Under any cir-cirtnstauct'S the individ7  util contribution 'would riot be a serious tax, while the result on the lumber  industry' would mean llu; difference  .butween prosperity and collapse.' Few  people have an idea., .of tho magnitude  uf the' industry aiul the, amount of  money it disburses in the community.  No complete statistics 'are available  but-from data we havo 'gathered we  are enabled to make, an estimate. AVe  believe that tlie lumber and shingle  mills pu the Coast here disburse'in the  course of a year for logs anil wages and  all kinds of .supplies about siic million  dollars. If we. add the mills in tlte  ntei-ior of the Province the amount  will be probably eight million.dollars.  It.is easy to see the commercial disaster that would follow a collapse in the  iKiitstry that circulates that amount  annually among the community. 'It  is estimated that of ihe price of lumber  at the-mill from 80 to So .per cent, i.s  I'.'pie.sented by'the cost of-wages and  s tpplies. ,  Tbe Federal authorities and the C'tui-  a It an Pacifla Railway Company urged  t'.ie millowners last autumn to prepare  fot ail immense demand this spring  for lumber in the North West Wiih  that end in view the mills in ISrii.fsh  IteWr  oui let   fni' the  eniiiiiioii grades 1 NOTICK.  ici'. without wl.icl. they cannot \ ,.\,''.,l,"!'.',':;..',".''''.l'.y J-.'���������'.,"'-!!, ���������'���������'',-'.'.> lIil��������� i,ft,il  L7.GA  I.il.- i i.il.'iiJ lu ii'iiily t,> tin* t'hii-f Ciuimks.siMiitT  il'l,:;liiN .-mil Wi'Vli.-i I'm- ;'. i*'it'('ill licence to rut  mil finy away timliii- iY"in tin* t<-U..\vin;;- ilr-  ���������I'lil-fl limls in tin* Wi-.-.t Kimtt'iiiiy ilKirirt :  1.    fcmii-.u'UJ'i.i'.; :t( a pnst. niarhcil *'K. .M'Ta'nn's  imth i':tst. oirir.'r |*..>t," mul ]il:uiti������.l at the wi.-M  li.-lll'i nf till* t'llllltllti'.'l liVl'l'   (ip|l:i::lh. till* 'll.illltl. nf  llcl.li.-li clia'!.-. thru.'f li.a'tli .-?.' ihaiiis. til', na  wot s'.i i-Iiain.i. llii'iii*.* sniil'i su I'll.iaw.

And  what was to become of her socially?  Tho more ho thought of it the more  impossible her position seemed. How  could that dainty blossom-like creature dnitco witli such rough fellows  as her cousin, Roger Plummer, oven  if dancing were in vogue in that set?  healthy      brown fac"e.   found  himself, li?nd t.y,���������h^posslb!e c[������or-���������"llLs}l������  very  smart  in   his  ball  uniform,     at  a large military ball, trying very  hard to look bored, but in reality  full of enjoyiperit. He liked dancing  and ladies' sotlcty, and was fresh  to gayoties of this kind. He Wished  tho deficiency in ladies had been on  tie other side, but then, as so many  of those gold laced, stalwart warriors lounging ? languidly against  walls were too vain, too lazy, " or  too clumsy to dance, it did not matter much, since no lady is ever too  liicd. too bored, or too vain to  dance, so he might have his share of  partners,  ineligible a-s he was,  ^Te thought of his littlo sister at  home, when he saw so marry fresh  prirl-faces in the brilliant whirl of  dancers, bright as rolling sunset-  clouds turning7 before him to the accompaniment of Iovc-ludcn waltz  music on a*.fine string band.  There are peoplo who despise  waltz-music; . have thej- ever been  young ? ever danced? ever flung  themselves liko swiinmerr upon those  bright waves of melody, and stayed  only by the pressure of one young  hand upon another young waist,  fioated far away into ideal regions,  rising and falling in spirit with the  ebb and flow of the music? Besides  that poetry of motion which quive s.  eo strongly through waltz music  that it is pain to sit still at its  sound, it has all the'.-tenderness, the  sadness, the inlinito unconscious  longing, the ethcical exaltation of  youthful love. Young people listen  to waltz music with yearning, looking into the vague rich future: old  people listen with yearning and recall   the  golden   past.  "I am never merry when I hear  sweet music," might be said of  Strauss's or Gungl's waltzes. But  the sadness seems pleasantor than  mirth.  l'i ilip listened, a pensive helight  irradiating and refining his features,  which inclined to a -square solidity,  end, leaning against his door-iamb,  imagined Jessie one cf that bright  crowd of fioiver-deckori, bejewelled  la'Hes, whose filmy draperies floated  mistily about them and mergnd into  one broad mass of color with gold-  laced scat let'and blue'officers, with  the varied facings and decoration  'distinguishing bursal s and lancers,  artillery and engineers, cavalry and  infant.y. lhe brilliance toned down ,  here and there by the black-blot of a I of mirth. "What  civilian dress. What a different | "Legion,"' lie  blc-ni-'ing  of color some of those pre- j ".Look, Medway,  ho admitted to more refined circles?  It had been better, he sometimes  thought, if tho child had been taught  dairy and housework in place of  Mnngnoll's Questions, French, and  piano-playing; her hands would in  that caso have been rougher, hor susceptibilities blunter, her faco not  less sweet, and her heart as pure;  Kogor riummer and young editions  of jlr. Olrceseman would not then  have jarred, upon her, she would then  have no more thought of quarrelling  with her place in life than a flower  does.  "A violet by a mossy stone half hidden from the eye."  She would have blossomed sweetly,  and as sweetly faded, untroub'ed and  unnoticed, in her place. It never  struck him that Jessie's exquisite  graco-and refinement were as native  to her as the perfume to the violet,  and widely different from Miss Blush-  ford's thin and spurious veneer of  history, arid, arithmetic, her feeble  pencil drawings, piatro-strummings,  and petty proprieties of speech and  manner. When he took stock of the  pretty, young faces present and observed tho ways of their; owners; he  felt that Jessie; would do herself no  discredit among them, he wns not  sure that many could surpass her.  That one of those?.young'faces surpassed not only Jessie's but every  other in tho room, he was perfectly  sure. .He-watched the slight young  figure belonging to tlint flower-face.,  as it glided through AOS*mazes of  tiro waltz, with a ceepening glow in  his dark gray eyes, and a. strange  new fearful joy tin ii led hiin when  her soft'floating, drapery swept him  in n. sudden surge of tlio dance. -A  friend spoke to  him,   unheard, smiled  "Thank you." Two gray eyes nnrl  two dark ones rested gratfi'lly upon  Claude Medwuy's face, Ada Maynard  floated away with hor partner, and  Midway's well-built, well-carried fig-  urn passed slowly on with a certain j  princely grace, leaving Philip full of  young gra.titu.do  and admiration.  When thc band struck up the" flrst  plaintive chords of No. 11, Philip  was already at Miss Maynard's side,  eager to claim hcr promise at the  first moment  possible.  Two gliding steps and a turn; and  they were oil, borne away and away  far from the prose of life, lost upon  the fairy sea of that enchanted  music, rising and'falling, upon the  bright waves of its yearning melody,  unconscious of physical being- ond  motion, because of their vory intensity and perfection, isolated in a  common beautitudo, thoy two alone,  each revolving round the other ns a  sole centre and source of motion, as  two stars cast into space free of any  solar system, might do. At last, as  if by common consent, they paused  breathless, flushed, radiant, and  Philip guided his partner to a seat  beneath a trophy bf arms untl flags,  into which sho sank smiling, while  hp leant against a Union .lack above  hcr, and, opening her fan, used it  gently on her behalf.  "I sometimes wonder if there will  bo dancing in Heaven." sighed Miss  Maynard, who was still in hcr teens.  "You dance so well, no wonder  that you enjoy it," he replied, won-  deiing at the glory of the rich dark  eyes, nnd the curled mazes of tlio  deep black hair and sweet curving of  the warm red lips, "1 suppose you  dance a groat deal ?"  "Oh 1 no. I am only just. out.  This is only 1113- second ball. And  it will bo the last, I am afraid." -  "Surely not. Why should it bo  so ?".. ".-.,''  "My last at home, I moan. We  go out to India, mother and I, next  week," -she sighed.  Philip sighed too. "I am sorry,"  he said after a pause, "no more  chance for me of another dance wilh  you." Iio  left   oil  using  the     fan  and   looked     dreamily  at  the  bright  moving crowd   with  a  sudden   discn-1  chantment.    "Poor    little   butterfly,'  ho thought,  "you will  bo snapped up !  the moment you   land."      Then     she I  would   bc  a  flowor-hovering  butterfly  no  more;  but a gontle little    hearth  cricket,   guarded   and     sheltered       by I  sorrre  >trong     man.       Cherlyhed       or \  crushed, he wondered,  witb a   sudden '  fear,  as he turned  and  looked, at the  slight frayi'c  form and  delicate face.  Could  sorrow   or   suffering  touch      a  S'ling      so     fi.it* n and   tender?      The  thought was as prepostc-"oris ..-is painful.

IN 1903, 27,1������0,000  In the valuation of the policy liabilities, the Company's own standard has  again been employed, viz.: the Institute of Actuaries' Table, with interest at  3A% for all business prior to January 1st, 1900, and the same table with 3% interest for policies  issued since that date. Tho total not Reserve by this valuation standard amounts to $25,093,374.  In addition to this tho Company holds Reserves of $32,315 for lapsed policies subject to revival,  and $55,028 for instalment claims fund. After providing for theso Reserves and for all liabilities,  except Capital Stock, there remains a surplus on policyholders'- account of $1,801,367.32. A largo  section of our business was valued on tho new table known as tho O11 Table, and tho Reserves  brought out amounted to 90.7% of tho Reserves required by the table, now in use by the Company. So that it would appear that no material change in Reserves would result bj' the adoption  of the more recent tables of mortality. So far as is known this is the first occasion upon which  these new tables have been used in a valuation in Canada or tho United States by any Company  having an established business. ���������  A full report of the meeting wil! appear in the Company's  paper, Life Echoes,  at     liis absorbed   earnest gazo,    and i shrivels  at  the  first breath  of  frost,  pulsed on.

He  pointed_out__that_since_t.he. conipany!s_  inccption it Iras paid out to policyholders and their heirs over 527,000,-  O00. Such a fact gives sonic idea of  tho vast benefits that result from lifo  insurance. Over Silo,500,000. of  assurances are now curried.by' tho  company.  During 1008 the new btiuiness paid  for amounted to well over ������1.0,000,-  000, a gratifying advance even upon  1002, itself a record year in tho company's history. The assets of the  company increased notably during the  yo.tir, nnd .'now. stand at well'over  S27,000,000. In making up its poll ey reserves,- the compniiy again employed tho. most stringent, valuation  basis of any old-established life company on the American 'continent. ..Oyer and above even these strong reserves the surplus on policyholders'  account is more than $1,800,000.

Tlio scene of ono of theso storiea  is laid iu thc wild moorland country  around fcihofllold, whoro a watchmaker called Huntsman had built a factory for making steel by a process of  his own invention. Tlio secret waa  a vory valuable" one, for it was tho  only process by which steol could be  made of uniform quality throughout;  but Huntsman had little fenr that  any of his rivals would discover it,  for- ho employed only picked and  sworn workmen, and tho portals of  his factory wore almost as strictly  guarded against strangers us Iho-  doors of a bullion-vault.  However, one bitterly cold wintry  night, when the7 wind was shrieking  over the neighboring moor, dribirrg  the snow in wild eddies before- it,  a tattered,- shivering tramp presented:  himself at the' door of the works and  pitifully craved -permission to warm  h:s frozen brines at the furnace tiroe.  For a long time he pleaded in v<yn,  the doorkeeper was obdurate: but-  finally Importunity and tho pathetic-  aspect of the man won the day, and  the tramp was admitted to tho-  warmth, only to fling himself on the-  floor in  utter exhaustion  AND I'O FALL ASL-ERP.  Thc rascal, however, was sleeping)  with onu eye open, and with that'eyo  ho was craftily watching tho men at  thoir work, with thc result that when  an hour later, lie left the place with  words of gratitude hc took Huntsman's secret with him.  Another interesting story takes us-  to the neighborhood of Temple Bar,  and to the shop of a chemist who was-  tho onlv man in England who knew  tho secret of the ma*f.irfac.ture of citric acid. So jealous was hc of his  invention tlrnt he would share it  with no one, but worked alono in tho  laboratory over his shop in Fleet  Street.  Ono evening, however, when his processes wero well advanced, he locked  up his laboratory and left the promises for a time, assured that no one  could possibly gain admittance during  his absence. But he bargained without a certain - uninvited guest, who  worked his way down thc chimney into . the laboratory and made such  good "trso of his time that, when ho ���������  ro-cmergod from the chimney, lie^had -  tho manufacture of citric acid at his  fingers' ends.  It was in a similar way that the  manufacture of tinplatc became potr*-  sible in Knglnnd���������a secret which no  one had been able to wrest from itr������  owners in Holland for half a century..  But thero was ui bold and crafty Cor-  nishrann, ono .lames Sherman, who  made up his mind to discover it al  any cost; and, going over to Holland.  he found-.his way into the factory  AT  GREAT    PERSONAL. RISK  and brought     the uccret back safely  i to our shores.

JToimd   the Food  Fitted Eer.  That  WHY SNOW BURSTS'; A GUN.  -In a discussion at the, Royal Society in jLondon rocuntly of some experiments, on the ofTccts of sudden  pvessurrs, attention was ctilled to a  singular cxpcrlbnco, which, it was  tmiil, people who go.shooting in win-  tur'soinetirrres have. If the' muzzle of  a. gun happens to get plugged up  w'th n little snow, the gun invariably blrrsts when fired in that condition. "Light as the plug of snow is,  il requires a definite timo for a finite  pressure, however greet, .to get it  under way, nod during this short  1 i.i*.(!"tho tension of the powder gases  lioc.ojiHi so groat that the barrel of  ihe ordinary fowling-piece Is unable  -to  withstand  it.

No-  whero in the world arc more luscious  fruits voducod. Among those peculiar to this belt is the durian, which  is about tho .'lize of a inusktrrolon.  Its exterior proiionts somewhat the  appearance of a chostrrnt burr, being  prickly and. tough; within, the fruit  is white and clieesc-like, and owing  to this peculiarity the American sol-  diors dubbed It tho "vosretablo llm-  , burger." Tho mangosteon is anoth-  etiHlly digest and that would supply j cr of tlte rare fruits. It is the rf7o  the greatest amount of nourishment, of an average orage,cliocolato?color-  "One day I obtained permission to i ed, and has a very brittle skin.
