In Princely Style at Revelstoke  ���������A Unique Programme���������A  Host of Visitors.���������Horse Racing the Main Attraction.  For the that time in a number of  years Revelstoke celebrated Dominion  Day. The fact that we celebrated,  however, was entirely due to the  efforts of the newly organized Tuif  Club, 'who had arranged for a two  days ptogranime of horse races and  which they carried out most successfully on Friday and Satuiday last.  The weather tluoughout the two days  i aces was till that could be desired.  The sun shone foith in all its gloiy in  keeping witb the spiiit of the occasion.  Dominion Day was nn ideal day for  white diesses, picnic parties, out of  door amusements and excursions. A  number of citizens took occasion to  spend a few horns at the celebration  at Arrowhead. -  But those who remained in the city  were tieated fo a splendid programme  of horse races on Front stteet, in which  besides the local flyers were two horses  from Kamloops, owned by J. R. Hull  and C. "Cottle, one horse from Trout  Lake, owned by A. Al. Cr.iig and oue  hox-se-froui Golden, owned by H. G.i  Gordon. < .Golden sent a contingent ,of  about fifty people, including the base  ball team and " "Old Pete".

( The Golden horse  ."Prince," which was'in*'charge of '.J.  XV. Hcndeison,1 of the Hott3 .Revelstoke  was easily.-the ''favorite with a large  majority and it-is believed that h.ul  an experienced'rider been up the little  b iy would have landed all the prizes,  although Tod Sloane, owned by J._R.  Hull, of Kamloops, was a splendid  goer and showed wondeiful speed,  and by many wasconsideicd invincible.  Tbe second day's events were held  on Second stieet and weie attended  by as huge and enthusiastic crowd as  on the previous day. All the races  were well contested. During the day  a matched race was mn between  Mrs. Fred Taylor's Katit T., iiddcn by  the owner, and Mi s. D. Robinson's  Laik, ridden by Miss E, Pettipiece,  the latter hoise was an easy winner,  causing consideiable excitement. The  most interesting event of the day was  the five-eighth mile dash between  H. G. Gordon's Piince, ridden by  Seymour Hillier. and C. H. Cottle's  Idaho Chief, ridden by Williams,  which was won easily by the former  after an exciting race. On leturning  to the winning post the rider was  tendered an ovation, being hauled  fiom���������his���������Miildle-jind-placed-on- the  shouldeis of admiiers, and inarched  thiough the stieet. Not only were  the men interested, but the ladies  showed their approval by the waving  of   handkerchiefs and   heaity cheers.  The officers of the Tuif Club are to  be congratulated on the successful  conclusion of their first race meet.  Alex. McRae acted as judge, W. M.  Brown starter, W. Cowan, secretary  and W. Fleming piesident in charge  of the couise.  The following gives the list of races  for the two days :  FIRST DAY  QUARTER MILE DASH  J. R. Hull'-, b. g., Tod Sloane (Williams) 1; H. G.

The football match "Fiiday morning  between   the   above   teams   wns witnessed by a large crowd of spectators.  Tbe game was well contested tluoughout,  Revelstoke   showing   the better  combination   and   winning   out   by a  scoie  of  3 goals to nil.   While Tiont  Lake   possesses some good individual  players, the  combination  game is tho  only one that wins.     The visitors de-  fence was good and but' for, the clever  work of  Bell   between the posts the  score for Revelstoke would have been  doubled.     For the home "team Feeney  at half-back was  the star, while Hugh  and w AIlanv on i tHe left wing showed"  good   combination    and   made   some  pretl y runs np the field., -' The steady-  defence of   the   backs * gave Hodgson  the custodian  very little to'do.

The boys suffered defeat at the  hands of the Kamloops team ou Dominion Day by a score of 80 to 13.  The fielding of thc local team was very  slack which accounted for the big  score against thcm.

The boys returned from Nelson on  Sunday evening and although they  did not succeed in defeating the Nelson team they made it so interesting  for them that the games played were  reported by the Nelson papers us being  fast and exciting, evenly contested and  the principal featmes of the celebration. , Nelson, of course, had the advantage of playing on their own  ground and their team, compared to  Revelstoke, was much heavier. ' The  ground also was in very poor condition having been newly fixed over,  was soft and uneven, making il almost impossible to pick up a ball. The  flrst game  was played on Friday and  Foot,Races '  * On Dominion Day Supt.

Tho game was much more evenly  contested than tbe score indicates and  judging from a two-column report in  the Daily News the Nelson boys had  all thoy could altendyto.  In Saturday's game the^ score is  leported as 4 to 2 iu favor of Nelson.  This should really road 3-2 as one  game credited to Nelson was not  earned by them, being put into the  net during an altercation and while  the Revelstoke goal was unprotected.  The referee was responsible for this  goal being remiss in his duty in not  stopping the game until the dispute  was settled. The line-up on Satuiday  was much the same as in the previous  game, the only changes in the Revelstoke team being that Dunne played  goal and E. Dodd took Clark's place  as second defence.  The boys are well pleased with the  showing they mado considering the  disadvantages under which they played and are confident that on good  ground, such as we have' in Revelstoke, they can turn the tables on the  I.

Strange Epidemic  Kinoston, Ont., July 5.���������The city is  suffering from an epidemic of a strange  character which attacks children and  is growing in extent. Victims are  seized with violent pains in the chest  or bowels, causing great agony and  oppression. Breathing is much contracted, a high fever sets in and  altogether the afflicted one has a very-  serious time. The disease only lasts a  few hours in most cases. The doctors  are at sea as to the cause of the  symptoms.  Labor Day, Sept. Tth, is drawing  near. What about the annual celebration ? It is time that organization  was undertaken to make the celebr .-  tion this year better and bigger than  last year.  Latest News fom the Far East  ���������Russia's Losses in the Last  Engagement���������Fierce Bayonet  Charges.  St. Petersburg, July 4.���������A war  correspondent who has arrived from  Mukden expresses the opinion that  with the rainy season at hand the  Japanese lost the opportunity of  dealing General Kuropatkin a crushing blow. He says that neither the  world iu general nor the Japanese  know how weak the Russian army  was in the earlier part of the war, and  asserts that   practically  the_Russian   army was then non-existent, but  when he left on June 18th Gen'efral  Kuropatkin had 125,000 men, ' and  reinforcements were pouring in at the  rate of 2,000 per day.  Earlier in the war the correspondent  thinks the Japanese could have done  anything they wished if they had  prer>sed the campaign with vigor.  During the six months' delay in cutting off Port Arthur thc Russians  rushed in munitions and provisions.  LiAO-Yang, July 5.���������The latest  reports of the Russian casualties in  the reconnaissance made by Lietit.-  General Count Keller between Motien  and Fen-Shui Passes on July 4th to  ascertain the Japanese column's  advance force, moving on Ltao-Yang,  show that 14 officers were wounded  27.1 men killed and 101 prisoners taken.  The desperate character of the fighting is shown by the repeated bayonet  charges, the Russidns ousting thc  Japanese from the trenches.  ,   (l  School Trustee Election.  On Monday, at the nomination for  school trustee, Mr. C. F. Lindmark  was elected by acclamation. Mr.  Lindmark has had considerable experience in the past on thc school  board and in the work of which he  has always taken a deep interest and  his election by acclamation is a matter  of congratulation to all concerned iui  thc welfare of the public school.  1$'\ <,.;..;������;..j^,;..;..j���������j,.j..j������.j,<;..>.;^..*;..;..;������.j������^i!night, however.

Efforts     Made to Anticipate     and  Mitigate tho  Sufferings  of  the  Stricken.  Famine is chronic in India. Tt lins  occurred at intervals for centuries  past, ns long as mnn remembers, as  long ns records have been kept, nnd  undoubtedly will recur for centuries  to come, although tho authorities  who nro responsible for tho well-being  of tho empire aro gradually organizing to counteract the forcus ol" nature which they cannot control���������by increasing the food supply nnd providing for its distribution. Hut there  niirst bo hunger and starvation in  India so long ns tlio population remains ns dense ns it is. Tlio reason  is not because the earth refuses to  support so ninny people, writes a correspondent. There is yet a vast nren  of fertile land untitled,-and. the fields  already cultivated would furnish food  system which promotes economy as  well as efficiency.  THE WORST FAMINE  ever known in India occurred in 1770,  whon Mr. Warren Hastings, tho Governor-General, reported that one-  third of tho inhabitants of Bengal  perished from hunger���������ten millions out  of thirty millions. Tho streets of  Calcutta and other towns wore actually blocked up with tho bodies of  tho dead, which were thrown out of  doors and windows, because thoro  were no menus or opportunity to  bury them. The empire hns boon  stricken almost ns hard during trie  last ton years.

In the aitnrnoon T called on Sylvia  and found hor admiring some lace.  "See!" she cried. "He toook this,  ond must havo rumpled it dreadfully,  for he had a lot of potatoes in the  same basket. But dear Mrs. Timbs  washed and ironed  it all  out."  "How do you arrange for his visits?" I asked.  "Oli, wo let bim liave tho lower  floor, and lock the doors nt the head  of tlio stairs. He is so used to our  house that he seldom disturbs us  now. 1 had an awful time prevailing  on papa to lot him como in. But you  know papa always does as I want  him to."

Oh, it's sueh fun! You  seo, we hover know when we got up  what we will find missing. Tho other morning he cleared out the kitchen  nnd pantry, nnd papa had to got his  breakfast, in town. And, would you  believe it, Mrs. Timbs wanted.to pay  l'or thc  breakfast?"  "She certainly is a generous woman, and has a great deal to' worry  her." I assured her. But after this  conversation I kept the upper part of  the. house locked.  Then passed a  visits. It was a groat relief, ns it  spared mo from calling on Mrs.  Timbs every morning to cart back  my, belongings. Her husband liad  stolen tho saddle-bag- chair on four  consecutive nights, and on each" occasion I was forced to help liim carry it home. I told Sylvia that I  could not stand it much longer: that  slie could not now acuse me of being  indolent.  "Don't begrudge a good.deed," she  said  a surplus. The export of grain and  otiier products from India continues  regularly- in tlio lean ns well as the  fat years, brrt tho country is so large,  the distances are so great, so inadequate that one province may bc cx^  porting food to Europo because it  has lo spare, while another province  mny be receiving ships loaded with  charity from America because its  crops havo failed and  ITS PEOPLE ARE HUNGRY.  The health and happiness of 300,-  000,000 human souls in India and  that of their''cattle, their oxen, thoir  sheep, their donkeys, tlieir camels,  and their elephants are dependent upon certain natural phenomena ovcr  which neither rajali nor maharaja, noi  viceroy, nor emperor, nor council of  state has control, and before which  oven thc great mogul on his bejewelled throne stood powerless. ~"*It is  possible to ameliorate tlie consequences, but it is not possible to prevent them.  Whether thc crops shall bc fat or  lean, whether the people and the cattle shall be well fed or hungry, depends upon thc "monsoons," ns they  are called, the alternation of wind  currents, which bring ruin in its season. All animal nnd vegetable life  is dependent upon tliem. In tho early  summer tho broad . plains are baked  by (ho sun to a temperaluro higher  than that of tho water of the great  seas which surround them. In parts  of northern India, around Delhi and  Agra, tlio temperature in May and  June is Higher than in any other part,  of tho empire, and is probably exceeded in no other part of the world. This  phenomenon remains unexplained. The  elevation is about 2.100 .feet above  the sea, the atmosphere is dry and the  soil is sandy. But for some reason  lho rays of the sun aro intensely hot  and arc fatal to those who arc exposed to thcm without sufficient protection. But this extreme heat is tho  salvation of the country, and by  its own action brings the rolief without which all animal and vegetable  life would perish. It draws from the  ocean a current of wind laden     with  bo the minimum. In a country. of  the area of India, inhabited b.v a superstitious, secretive und ignorant  population, it Ts impossible to compel the natives to roport accidents  and deaths, particularly among the  Brahmins, who burn instead of bury  their dead. Those who know best  assert that at least 15 por cent, of  the deaths aro not renorted in times  of  FAMINES  AND  EPIDEMICS.  '  And the enormous estimate I havo  given does not include any of the  native states, which have one-third of  the area and one-fourth of the population of the empire. In somo of  them sanitary, regulations aro observed, and statistics arc accurately  reported. In others no attempt is  made to keep a registry of deaths,  and thero are no means of ascertaining the mortality, particularly in  times of excitement.

AUDITOR GENERAL  WILL RETIRE,  The Auditor General lins decided lo  retire from oflice  rather  than submit  to   the  tyranny of the  Government.  Last  year   nu   attempt,  wns   made to  destroy his usefulness  by taking from  him   most   of   his. powers.    This plot  was defeated by public opinion.   However, the   ministers   were   not,   to   lie  denied:   aud  during the  prist twelve  months they have curried on a systematic  crusade  against the wntchdog of  the   treasury.     The    treasury   board  overruled decision or Mr. .McDougnll,  which  meant 'thousands of  dollars in  the pocket of  Canada.     I.ly one exposure   the   Auditor   General  made tlie  Government 'change    a   conl met.. in  such   a   way, as  to afreet a saving of  millions of dollars.  This did not please?  the   grits.     The party heelers could  not thrive under such conditions and  a   petty   persecution   of   the Auditor  Genera]   was   commenced.      .Mr.  McDougnll could not stand the strain and  asked  to  lie relieved of his duties on  the first of July.    In view of  the immense  expenditure io.be undertaken  iu connection with the construction of  the Transcontinental railway this is to  regretted.   The country will be called  upon to raise  8170.000,000 nnd there is  no doubt that with Mr. McDougnll nt  the head of the audit department, tire  money would   be   spent in a judicious  manner.     He   is   a   Liberal nnd was  placed in  office by   a Liberal govetn-  -meq t.������������������H-? -fc-ytilL-of���������t-ha b=politisal-  faith  but he  will   not allow money to  be   thrown   away without making a  protest.     Thnt   i.-   his   crime and the  Liberal   party   nre   not   prepared   to  allow Mr.   McDougnll or- anybody else  to interfere in  the coming carnivjrl of  expenditure,  which  is  to  glndcn  the  hearts of the faithful.

"It���������wns so���������slippery," she said,  childishly," "I���������I was so frightened."  She possessed  the rare art of crying gracefully, her flushed face   only  looked  sweeter    through  tears,     her  features    kept    their  dainty  curves,  her eyes  wero all  the  brighter,    like  for-get-nie-notrs in  the dew,  her   eye-,  lids did    not   redden,  the  quiver  of  hcr    lips    went   straight to people's:j than  hearts.

"Then     it  .might hnvo killed you? nnd you  don't like .slippery things;" he added  with  a   tender smile.  "I don't, like snakes. Tlrey make  me ill.

Jessie now began to express, some  wonder."' nt Miss Lonalale's delay,  and looking at her watch, found to  hcr intense surprise* that the morning was gone, it was lime to go  home to dinner.  "Hy   the   way,   I  quite   forgot    tho  note.-'   Captain     Medway  said,  getting also  that he had  been  when  ho reached  the Court,  cheerful  and good-tempered as  usual.  "Heen sketching this morning,  Clara ?" ho asked his cousin. "No?  Is tho picture finished, then ?" Clara  did not reply; she wns angry with  him for not making himself nca.iiairi-  ted wilh her movements earlier, in  which case ho eorrld havo driven to  Cleeve with her. Being Sir Arthur's ward, arrd having from early  childhood passed half thc yenr with  him, Clara had fallen into fraternal relations with hcr cousin. This  was all very well in one's teens, but  a wonrarr of four-and-twenty, possessing largo property, expects moro  deference. So Miss I.onshnlo told  her cousin later, when explaining  the cause of lier anger to him. lint  Claude know the true cause far too  well.  "If you havo nothing to do this  afternoon, Claude," Sir Arthur  said, "do try'to umirso poor little  Ethie; she is frightfully low to-day."  "1 was thinking I might wheel hor  oul, ir} the sun. perhaps, this bright  day," ho replied readily. And he  passed the long afternoon by the  sido of the fretful little cripple, who  rewarded her brother's patience by  pouts and reproaches, but would  not  let him go.  "I really wonder," Lndy Gertrude said, "that Claude boars with  Ethel as he does. The truth is, he  spoils, irer. Sho    is   more peevish  over    nfter    he has been with  "Claude feels for the child; ho is  certainly ���������kind,'.' Sir Arthur returned. "Hut it would be hard indeed  if a strong mnn, who never had an  ncho in his life, lost his patience  with a sick girl."  "My dear uncle, it is precisely  those strong men knowing nothing  of pain who nro most impatient of  other, people's suffering," Clara interposed; "Hugh would never devote, an.-afternoon to Ethel; he says  that slie gives him  tho blues."  "Or Jim," -his .mother added; "as  Jim- says, ho wouldn't so much  mind, amusing her if-she would bo  amused,  but sho  is so ungrateful."  "Poor child ! poor- denr child !"  moaned her father, thinking how  different a lot he had expected for  his only daughter in her spring-tido  of womanhood.  "And Claude knows what it is   to  surfer.

"Only last night I dreamt of bride  cake," she sighed, "and tho feelings  I hnvo in my inside nobody knows.  Hut I ain't ono to complain."  "Jessie," said Mr. I'lummer, when  Cousin Jano had left the room  wafted by her own sighs, "don't  you ovcr give Philip tho tongue-pio  for dinner, my dear;" and she crimsoned with inexplicable pain at this  indirect allusion to hcr engagement.

Then she paused,  having, emptied the skimmer daintily,  into tho wooden bowl sho held in  her left hand,  and fell into n  SOIL MANAGEMENT.  The problem of soil management is  a complicated ono for a variety of  reasons, among which mav bo mentioned: 1. We possess little fundamental knowledge concerning the soil.  Thero hns not boen a time in f)0  years when wn know so littlo ns at  present. 2. Tho character of our  soils varies greatly, und soil types  hnvo not been sufllclciit.lv correlated  to mako it possiblo to predict that  results obtained in one place will  apply to another. When tho Eoils  have been surveyed, mapped and classified into sny ten main types, il  will then'be possiblo to carry on field  experiments on each of the ten typos  and state with some degree df dc'll-  nitenoss thn conditions best, suited to  each, writos ThoR. F. Hunt.  Soil is only n means to an end.  Tho farmer does not wa*nt to produce soil. Uo twishes to produce  plants and animals. Soil- is only  one of the- means or essential conditions to the successful., production of  plants. Speaking broadly, successful  plant production depends upon 'tin-  plant itself, that is, its inherited qualities, and upon its environment. Its  environment is the soil, its preparation, rainfall,' temperature, the time  and method of seeding or planting,  insect or other inliiries, mid plant dis-  caseM  . TOO LTTTLE ATTENTION ;..  is paid generally to the inherited qualities of the plant, that is, to improved seed, and too litt.lo to adapting thc plant to the coll or the soil  to the plant, and to giving it those  methods of culture best adapted to  its fullest development.  These fuels admitted, what practical methods are open to the farmer  and others, not merely for tho improvement of his soil, sinco thut is a  iucans to an oird, but for the economic production of lnrgor crops?  Speaking generally ami recognizing  many individual exceptions due to  special conditions, the basis for improvement lies along two lines. n  moro systematic and shorter rotation  of crops whero the land is capable or  tillage, and the keeping of morc live  stock. It can easily be proven sta-  trairr j tistically that the farmer is not liv-  of reverie, her cheeks (lushing and . ing up to his opportunity in either  her* heart throbbing, us tho morn-,of these directions. This does not  ing's history repeated itself and she necessarily moan that more land  thought    of   looks      and  tones that .ehould be  plowed  annually  than     at.  present.

Oh !  that Miss Lonsdale hnd never known  her !   that she  had  never  seen    anyone     at   Marwell   Court I   And yot  nnd yet !  pans again  get a full bite of grass. The cows  relish the tender grass, but practice  groves it is not  good for them.  They partially lose thoir appetito  for dry forage and tho watery grass  that takes it does not contain tho  nourishment that was supplied by tlio  hay. Tho consecjuonco Is that they  fall oif in their milk nnd they hardly  regain it again all that season. The  pasture is injured, yielding less feed  for the season, whilo tho ground is  soft nrrd they poach it up and cut  the sod.  When tlie cows nro kept In lho yard  and fed their usual amount of forage and grain thoy will give a steady  flow of milk. Tho grass will grow  without Interruption, arrd whon ready  to turn the cows on it will give a  full bite tliat will keep up 'through  tho season.  Those wiio havo had to feed their  cattle in tho yards until the grass  has got a good start are well satisfied with their methods,  POULTRY  NOTES.  Don't sot eggs from your breeding  hens until at least ten days after  mating.  Never market hens the age of  which you are in doubt about. Bad  eggs destroy the demand for hen  fruit.  One cockoral is not sufficient for  a floclj of sixty hens, if you want  to get fertile eggs and want also,  to got chickens that are a, notch hotter than tlio parent birds.

Tlio popular belief tlint ;nuts are  too hearty is a misapprehension of  tho facts, It camo from the practice of eating thorn after a hearty  meal and especially after a liberal indulgence in some form of flesh.

People have no right to be careless  concerning their health. First, they  have tljeir' own duties to do, and  thoy cannot do them properly without health; -secondly, no person can  be "sick without interfering with thn  rights and p-ivilcges ond comforts of  others. Probably three-fourths of tho  sickiioss and disease iu thc world  could be prevented by a littlo care,  and what a shame it is for people  who ought to be and might be, well  and useful in the world, to mako  themselves ill and dependent and miserable, and so hinder others from  their work, and weary them and mate  them ill, when n littlo care might  havo prevented it all! It is every  person's duty to be well and strong,  rather than weak, sickly, miserable,  hopeless, and burdonsomo to "others.  Ilenco all persons should be thoughtful and careful about their health.  Christians especially should care for  their bodies  which  aro  the   "temples  of the-Holy Ghost," and their hoalth,  which  is necessary 'for 'effective'   scr-'  vice  for their Master.     No ono     but-  a brute would wish to .work a    horse  till  it  is sick;  yet  many  who    claim,  to bo Christians will work themselves  nnd  thoir families,  in a way     which  would-bo-crunl-in-tho-cnso-of-a-horso���������  or a mule.    People must' learn to bo  careful  of the Lord's property,     and  Christians are not    thoir own;    they  nro "bought, with a price," nnd should  therefore "glorify in their bodies."  TREACLE FOR HORSES.  Scientific tests in substituting  treacle for oats and othor cereals in  feeding horses have yielded surprising results. It is now definitely established that as a horse diet thero  is magic in treacle. With this syrup on hi.s bill of faro, the horso  rapidly takes on solid weight, develops prodigiously in muscular energy, grows a glossy coat, and enjoys uninterrupted health. For  these animals, therefore, treacle is  declared to be both a tonic and  health food. In addition to tho  many desirable results a treacle diet  reduces the cost of horse maintenance over 'JXt per cent.  HANISIIING   PIMPLES.  Thero are three ways, to banish  pimples. One is to heal them prematurely, only to have them break  out again. To this end cold creams  are used to effect a transitory cure  which is far from radical.  Tho second method is the use of  astringent lotions, which dry up, but  do not riVive out, tho impurities, so  that they simply seek another outlet.  Tho third and only sure and permanent method is to seek the cause,  eradicate it and drive the pimples  out. Better suffer a slight temporary  increase of the evil than to endure  intermitten disfiguration for years.  Tho ordinary    physician pays     but  'little hoed to facial eruptions, unless  of a malignant 'character, yet thoy of- -  ten cause greater mental misery th*n  more serious disorders.  Tht- pores of an oily skin arc simo-  ly inert, lazy. They must be stimulated to do thoir part in eliminating  wattte matter. If tho retained solium,  bo left in the pores it hardens, festers and becomes a pimple. Blackheads are almost the certain precursors of pimples.

As  the affair seemed to open, up .an. entirely new field, it has been suggested to Bode that a more popular account thereof might servo to promote inquiry into nr subject which  has but latterly begun to arouse anything jipp'roaching rgcncral' interest.  Tt is, therefore, at his request that  the following is penned.  Early in August I received a note  from a. well-known dealer in -antiques  to the 'effect. Mint an ancient couch  of Egyptian workmanship liad come  into his possession. As 1. have myself a small collection of -Egyptian  curios���������though' insignificant beside  that of Maurice Bode���������and ns such  anthrin'ties aro always of interest to'  mc, I called at the shop to examine  tiie specimen.  T must confess that I was anticipating', comparatively modern workmanship, probably evincing indications of the Roman influence; it Wns,  therefore, a welcome surprise to find  that ��������� lho: coucli -alluded to? was of  much" earlier design. It was constructed to grotesquely resemble a  leopard, the feet anil clnws being of  copper. Tho body of tho coucli and  a. part of the- logs were of acacia-  wood. heavily gilded. . Thc head and  shoulders of the leopard were so  contrived as to furnish a Hollow, presumably for tlio reception of a large  cushion, and along tho framework of  this singular,piece of furniture ran  a lino of partially defaced hieroglyphics. Tlie' execution, throughout was  magnificent, and, tliough-fantastic,  betrayed considerable artistic -taste.  The wood had in many places decayed  and of the hierglyphics I could mako  .neither head nor tail. Nevertheless,  I would -liave given much" to possess  the" beautiful piece of work; but the  figure mentioned by the dealer placed  it beyond the reach of my somewhat  slender purse.  "The price I'm asking leaves me  vory little profit, sir," he assured me.  "It was one of the lots put up at  Northbio's last Friday, and* there  were buyers from three big museums  to bid* against."  "Who was tlie previous owner?" I  inquired.  "Professor Bayton. who died at the  beginning of the year. It was the  last item ho ever added to his collection."  "IIow did they describe it at  Northbio's?*'  " 'Antique     Egyptian   couch���������later  Theban.' "  "No further particulars?"  "No.  sir,"  said  the denier,  with  a  smile.  " I'-determined to draw, tho attention  of Bode to this very peculiar piece  of furniture, and, mentioning my intention, I left tho shop, lt so'luip-  . pened; however, tliat the doctor was  out of town at the time, nnd nearly  a week clnpscii before I snw him. At  the earliest opportunity I called at  liis place, and proceeded lo describe  what I had seen, intending to ask  him to accomji^y_iiie_u|ion_a_second  ^yisilT"-There was no need for mo to  make the request: I saw from the first  that Iur was interested; and when T  endeavored - to explain the unusual  format ion of the leopard's head he  sprung up excitedly.  Seizing a sheet of paper and a pencil, he executed a rapid sketch'. "Like  thnt?" he said eagerly.  "Exactly!" I replied, in astonishment.  :> "AVe'll go now," was liis iioxt remark; and clapping his hat on his  head, he clutched me by:', the arm  und hurried from , the house.  On tho way I endeavored to elicit  from liim some explanation of his  sudden' enthusiasm; brrt lie declined  to gratify my curiosity, promising to  explain moro fully later. Upon our  arrival at the dealer's a disappointment .awaited us." The- couch had  been sold    two-    days before  lo      a  into tlie hands of M'Quown was usod  in their temple���������probably about tha  time of Hatshepsu."  ���������Bbdo had no 'immediate opportunity to., further pursue the matter, for  on :the' following day Iio'.. again'left-  London in response to an urgent appeal from the Continent, where ho  was engaged in some matter connected with one of tho principal  museums. Ho was still absent at  tho end of August, and was upon the  last day of the month I observed tho  how I would, I could hear no sound  ner was I conscious of being in contact with anything palable; in short.  I was myself fmpnlnpablel ..T seemed  to feel my heart throbbing, yet realized in somo strango wny that, being but nn immaterial mind, I could  havo no heart.

A couple of minutes ngo  you became so deadly pale that I  grow alarmed.    Wero you dreaming?"  I rose to my feet as unsteadily .as  though leaving a bod of long illness.  "Before I answer your question, what  havo you discovered?". I asked, sinking Inlo a comfortable nrm-cluiir.  "In the first place, 1 have partially translated the hieroglyphics, and,  in tire second place, I have removed  the top of tho leopard's head."  "IIow could you possibly translate  the hieroglphics in so short a time?"  was my incredulous inquiry.  "Well, you havo slept for over four  hours,  and I have,  moreover,      been  THE ART Of TOII JAPAN  FOREIGNERS WONDER AT HER  SYSTEM.  without perccjitiblo effort from tho  marble balcony-to the, brink of tho  river.  A man and a woman wore in the  boat, which was rowed from tho bow  in the manner of a gondola by a gigantic     Nubian.       The    woman was  following paragraph in a well-k'nown | robed in white, and as she lay, with  scientific journal:  Tlie extensive collection of antiquities made by tho Into'Mr. Edward  M'Quown, who died witli lamentable  suddenness on tho 10th instant, will  commence at 11 a. m., when a largo  attendance may be expected."  I had known M'Quown slightly,  aud, as ho was barely forty, was  shocked to learn of his death. I  saw, however, that I must act with  promptitude, and without a moment's delay I sent oil a wire . to  Bodo:  "M'Quown   dend.     Auction  to-morrow.   >Am I to secure the couch?"  The reply w,ns brief but definite:  "At all costs.���������Bode."  Accordingly,  at the hour of clc������'������n,  on'tlio following morning, I duly presented myself at tho auction-rooms. I  found tho couch to be catalogued as  Lot, 111.  and. a mournful man      who  stood   immediately  beside  mo      commented upon this circumstance.  "Between ourselves, I am inclined  to think that tlie bidding for Lot  3 3 will bo rather slow,'-' ho confided.  "An unlucky number to. an-unlucky,  article."  "I:am afraid I don't quite follow,"  said I. .  "Well, docs any ono know where  Professor Bayton got tho thing? No,  "nobody does. Did hc or did ho not  dio "threo weeks aftor it camo into  his possession? Ho died. How long  did M'Quown have tho couch? Four  days! Their ho died. Now it's up  as Lot 13; and if you're thinking of  bidding, it's my personal opinion  that you'll get it cheap."  Whatever tho reason, it was an  undoubted fact that the bids for  Lot 13 wero few and cautious. It  was ultimately knocked down to me  at one-third of the price that poor  M'Quown* had paid for it. Thore  wore no other lots in which I was  interested, so, having mado arrangements for tho convoying of the couch  to my rooms, I wired Bodo of my  success, and spent the remainder of  the day delving among Babylonian  records in tlie British Museum. I returned homo about half-pa'st six,  to find that tlio purchase had just  arrived; and hastening through my  dinner, I lit a cigarette and began  a-molliodical examination of this latest acquisition.  I had hoped to, find something that  would.servo to confirm Bode's theory;  but beyond the fact that the work  was of ..undoubted antiquity, I could  establish nothing. The hieroglyphics  might possibly contain-a clue to the  maltoi*,_but_they_were-pcculiarly- complicated nnd diflleult, and.I felt too  weary after my day's labors lo attempt their immediate translation.  Heing seized with a desire to learn  whether nny.degree of comfort could  bo enjoyed upon so strangely shaped  a pieco of furniture, I placed a large  cushion in tho hollow behind tlie  leopard's head, and, lighting a fresh  cigarette, stretched myself upon the  couch.  vTlie result was surprising.' A morc  delicious sense -.'. of restfulnoss stole  ovor me thnn I had ever beforo experienced.    I had only to close     my  her head upon thc man's shoulder'  and tho moonlight fell upon her upturned face, I saw hor to be as beautiful as a nymph of classic lore. A  strango resentment, such as Zeus  j might have. experienced toward a  mortal lover of Io or Danae, possessed mo; and whon a shaft gleamed  through the air and the man in the  boat sprang up, to fall dead into  the river, an incredible satisfaction  tool: the place of my former resentment.  An eight-oared galley shot out from  tho dense shadows of a lingo bod of  rushes, and then ensued a scene such  as shotrld have moved the heart of a  stone; yet I observed it to its close  without being conscious of any emotion,'whatever.  The white-clad form of tho girl rose  up in the boat, and in another instant would have plunged into the  river beside tho dead man; but tho  huge Nubian seized hor in ono muscular arm and -restrained her. A momont afterwards thc galley came  alongside, and slie apparently lost  consciousness as her slim body was  roughly hauled on board.. I saw her  lying upon the deck as still and  white as though death had claimed  hor too. I have n6 recollection of  being actually on board tho galley,  but I remember viiidly thc silent  journey across the calm bosom of the  river, and can recollec*,. that thero  scorned to be something familiar in  it all. I evon noticed the infinitely  cooler air out there upon tho water,  and tho scene of tho arrival at tho  great temple shall be with mc to my  dying day.  At the foot of -a flight of marble  steps the galley wa.s moored, and I  saw a number of men clad in long  black robes descending slowly. Two  of them carried a kind of bier, and  as they reached the edge of the water tho death-like form was lifted  from the galley's deck and placed upon it. Solemnly raising their beautiful burden, they mounted again to  the top, passing betweon two tall  towers, advanced along nn avenue  lined-upon either side by tho figures  of sphinxes. I witnessed all this  quite clearly without knowing by  what means l'-wns enabled to?follow;  and when the bearers reached tho  prokylaoum of thctemjjlc and'passed  within I still accompanied them.  Across an area surrounded by high  walls they proceeded, and through a  doorway that was cither gold or  gold-plated, into': a vast hall, dimly  illuminated, and seeming to bo a  very forest of pillars.'

And I related tho incidents of  my extraordinary dream as I have  already set thcm forth.  He remained silent for a moment at  the end ..;-. bf my narrative, his eyes  dreamily closed. Then, rising to his  feet, ho bent over the head of th?  couch. "Yes," ho said slowly, '.'there  is a narrow channel from tho mouth  of the leopard that presumably communicates with the hollow at the  base." -  Ho paused, then added irrelevantly:  "Tho rock temple" at Eeir-ol-Bahari."  "Right, Bode!" I criod, in sudden  excitement, "lt was tho temple at  Deir-el-Bahari! I understand now  why tho scene seemed vaguely familiar. But how do you account for the  leopard-priesthood being established  tliere?"  "A secret .cult, consisting of priests  ostensibly following other creeds. You  havo undoubtedly" witnessed tho punishment'of Neothys, Ja "beautiful priestess of the mystic goddess, who is  never named in tho inscriptions,' but  of, whom tho white leopard is emblematic. This Neothys ' had a lover,  one 'Neremid, ' a captain of thc warriors, and their trysting-placo was  in the very, shadows . of Hntslicpsu's  temple at Dcir-cl-Behari. Ho used to  wait her coming in a boat upon tho  rivor. But ono night 'she was followed. Neremid died by the hand of  Thi, chief of tho temple-gunrd, "ami  Neothys was dealt with by thc iiigh-  priost."  "What was the moaning of the extraordinary experiment I witnessed in  my dream?"  "Tne man in the red robe was 'undoubtedly Karpusa, whom 1 believe  to have been tho last high-priest of  the cult. I have previously encountered this singular personality in the  courso of my investigations;. and liis  knowledge of lho "unknown" appears  to havo exceeded the credible. According to the inscription upon the  couch, TCarpusa wreaked vengeance  upon Neothys by denying her immortality for all ages."  '"I fail to follow."

The Japs had plans.and  specifications of tlio new boats beforehand, and: know tlie run of them "from  stem to stern���������even lo the position of  tho guns. Every detail of the transfers was , accomplished with the ease  and  REGULARITY OF CLOCKWORK.  "Tho Britishers and dogoes were put  aboard tho liner and the cruisers ran  their anchors up and steamed away  iir cliaso of a. couple of Russian volunteer ships, with everything as trim  npd shipshape as if tho new crews had  made the long voyage in them.  "That was a feat in sheer- perfection of detail work.' said Lea, 'that  no olher fellows in the world but the  Japs, as I honestly believe, could  have accomplished.'  "When Lea and his brother officers  got to Tokio they had a great reception. 'The 'Mikado decorated them.  The Mayor read an address of thanks  and a? national holiday was proclaimed in their honor.  "He showed mo some of the presents lie received from the people of  all classes���������from the Mikado down.  Thero wero cases of 'em, things somo  of thorn of the kind to make, ah art  collector's .mouth, water. From the  Mikado lie had some priceless silver,  and there were lots of treasures in  his collection that monoy could not  buy. From the poor people there  were hundreds'.of faris and all thoso  charming knick-knacks '".whose, artistic  beauty is out of all proportion to  tlieir trifling cost.-  '/.Ono present that he prized highly  consisted of a.now pair of; the queer,  short, hand-knittod wbollcii '���������������������������'���������. socks  that' Ufa soldiers wear in winter��������� funny looking things, with' a separate  pocket for the big toe. As lie was  leaving Tokio an old woman pressed  through tho crowd of loavo-laRcrs  that politely made Way for her and  handed tlrem to him tlirough the carriage window, smiling through her  tears.   THE DESEGT DURE NOW  ENGLISH PARTY NOW ON  WAY TO EGYPT.  THE  Sunlight   in   Tents  Through  Special Hue of Glass for Each  Patient.  The "desert cure." supplemented  by the "color cure," i.s the latest  thing that is to be tried to restore  neurotic women to health and  strength. The nub of (lie former is  rest, fresh nir. quiet, and tho novelty of strange surroundings. The  "color cure" is an extension of tlio ^  experiments of. Flammarion, tho  French scientist on flowers.  A party of English women is now  on its way to the .sandy cxpntrso of  Egypt.- This dc-svrt cure is tho idea  of n woman who hns gained a reputation ns a masseuse. Among her  clientele nro several society leaders  suffering from neuritis and ils attendant ills, and they have been benefitted greatly by thc particular form  of Swedish massage pructit'ed' by tho  woman.  Something, however, wns wanted  (o complete their perfect restoration  to health, and the idea struck the  masseuse llrat. the pure and beautiful  nir of the Nubian desert was the  one thing necessary to bring back  tiie elasticity of youth.  Acquainted as she is with the desert, thc masseuse made arrangements to take her patients to a suit  able spot far? enough removed from  the regular enravan routes  TO  AVOID PUBLICITY.  Tents nro. to'be erected  when     they  arrive and each tent is to be inhabited  by  a  patient.  A certain number of' fellaheen women have been engaged ns servants,  and once the camp has been formed  no man will '22 allowed within its  lines."- Neither are letters'or. papers  to be permitted to enter the reserved inclosurc. The diet is to be of  tlie simplest" and will .consist of  fruits and cereals.  The great cure is to be the air,  tho pure air of the desert. The.  clothing will be of tho'lightost and  most -...ethereal description, so, that  the. patients-may enjoy the air? and  sun baths with little trouble.' Simplicity i.s also to be tlie keynote of  the furnishings of thc camp.  No amusements, except perhaps a  little painting for the artistic, no  fino dressing, no distractions such as  are found in the foreign spas and  health resorts, will be permitted.  Ail day long they will be breathing  in tho life-giving air, which in its  very elasticity will prevent any feeling of ennui from gaining ascendency  over their minds.  Tho directress of the cure will soo  that her palicnl-s have just enough  to soothe their tired-out brains, and  will herself superintend all the arrangements. One of her ideas, and,  having ascertained what particular  nhndecis likely to exercise a beneficial influence, over each individual  patient, bho will see thnt tho <ssun-  light. streams in  tlirough a  SPECIAL HUE OF GLASS. ,  Or if thc pane of colored glass cannot bo aflrxed in the tent itself thc  manager.wiil contrive that some arrangement is made to. pci'mit colored  light. Thus the patient will have  one form: of ? distraction to interest  them, and tlie novelty of the ' curo  is expected to assist materially in  the benefit to be derived from' the  pure air.  In the case of using the glass 'in  the desert, the patients will be ablo ������������������  to undergo the course at stated  times only���������in, tho early morning and  evening���������for the heat of the midday  sun''beating" down oh the fair invalids would do more harm than good'.  Rest, fresh air, and quiet nro "tho  panaceas offered by the originator  of the movement, who firmly be-"  lieves that there is a groat future  for the desert cure for women of nor- '  vous and highly strung natures.-Tho  women of..'the.'present-' expedition intend to spend some seven weeks far  from, the madding crowd, and- their  leader has : assured them that? by  that time they will be restored to  perfect health.  " 'Poor old lady,' said T.ea. 'Tliere  was it simple grace arrd dignity in  the way sho made her humble offering  Hint touched me deeply.

The   citizens   of   Revelstoke    were  shocked last night on  a receipt  of a  telegram from Sicainous,  announcing  the death   by ' drowning,   of   Charley  Paget, the C.P.R. operalor. It appears  that Jlr. Paget and the express agent  at Sicainous were out somo  distance  from the shore with a  boat  liathing.  Both being in the writer holding to thc  side   of   the   boat   paddling   towards  shore, when  deceased,   who  was only  learning to swim, decided that he could  make his way to shore without the aid  of the boat,   and   started   oif.      In   a  moment   his  friend   noticed   that he  was   irr    distress     and     immediately  went to hi.s assistance, but was unable  to keep him up and  Charley sank  irr  12 feet  of   water.     Hi.s   companion's  cries for help were heard by Jlr. T. E.  L.   Taylor,  who is   spending   a   few  days at the C.P.R. hotel,   who  rushed  down,   jumped   into  the   water  and  swam to tbe spot where Paget was last  seen.    Diving in   12 feet of  water he  srrcceeded   after   a  hard   struggle  in  rescuing the unfortunate young  man.  Two physicians who were slopping  at  the hotel, tried for fully half an   hour  to bring life back into   the  body,   bul  without   success,      The   accident   occurred  about 9   o'clock   on   Tuesday  evening.      Dr.   Cross,    coroner,    was  notified and left on No. 1 for Sicainous  lo look   into  the   facts   of   the   case,  and decided that death wa.s due to  an  accident.
