IS.���������Tho Coipinander  of tiro Japanese anny, besieging Port  Arthur, despatched Major Yamoka  and a member of his stafT wilh a ilag  of truce to the out posts of the Russians yesferday, where he delivered to  a Russian stall" officer the offer of the  Emperor of Japan gnmling the removal of non-combatants. He nlso  demanded the surrender of Port  Arthur.   -- C  General Stocssul, commanding the  Port Arthur garrison, refused to surrender and said that the garrison were  prepared to fight to a finish. On the  news of the refusal of GeneralStoessel  to surrender the garrison, the siege  was begun and the batteries prepared  for a final effort to reduce the inner  forts. In another" twenty-four hours  it is expected the Japs will "be in  possession of the besieged city.  St. Petehsuukg, Aug. 18.���������The  Cruisers Diana and Palladn have  reached Port Arthur.

GOVERNMENT  SUSTAINED  Another Gold Brick  A gold brick reported to'be worth  about $4,000, the result of the past 20  days run of tlie Goldfinch stamp, mill,  says the Camborne Miner, was taken  out on Saturday by A. F. Rosenberger. * s This is tho'first brick turned  out by this mill since last January  from. which time until the. 13th of  July .the mill1 was'out of commission.*  Development work has been-**in progress on the Goldfinch property for  some months past, and it is said that  rich ore has been encountered.. Considering that the bulk of the ore  treated was taken from open surface  cuts, tiie amount of gold obtained at  the cleanup gives one an idea of the  value of the property. The Goldfinch  is situated directly across Fish River  from the Copper Dollar and Eva  mines and is one of the leading gold  mines iti'B. C. Under new management it should stand foremost as a  gold producing property.  Railway Commissioners Coming  Mr. II. Floyd, secretary of the  Board of Trade, has received the following telegram from the Board of  Railway Commissioners, relative to  the sittings of tho Board to be held in  Revelstoke:  Regina, N. W.

A. Geohck Blaiii, Jr.,  Acling Secy. B. R. C.  Reception to R. L Borden  Halifax, Aug. 10.���������Mr. R. L. Borden, leader of the Opposition, and Mrs.  Borden were welcomed home by  thousands of citizens last night.- The  city was illurninatecj. Ib took the  procession nearly two' hours to traverse the route through the city to  Mr. Borden's home and everywhere it  was continuous ovation:*  School Re-opening.  The public schools will re-open on  Monday, Aug. 22nd. The trustees and  teachei-s request that ns far as possible all pupils be in attendance on that  date. They would specially urge that  all pupils who"'intend entering the  Primary Class (Miss Grant's room) before Christmas should be present from  the beginning of the term, as such  pupils cannot receive proper attention  if they enter the class after the work  has once got- under way. It is hoped  that parents will make a special elfort  this term to have their children attend  regularly, as in the past the work of  the school has been somewhat seriously retarded by irregular attendance  in many of the classes.  Labor Day Celebration.  The Labor Day celebration finance  committee are getting down to work  and of the end of the week a statement of the amount subscribed by-  business men and citizens should bc  in the hands of the executive committee. In Ward III Messrs. Chas.  Abrahamson, R. A. Upper and Albert  Stone had collected nearly $150- up to  last' evening.

A Young Man * Named Cochrane/- Found Dead in a Shack  at Notch Hill.���������Cause of  Death Unknown.  Notch Hiix, Aug. 17.���������-A young  Scotchman, named Cochrane, 'was  discovered dead in his shack one mile  and a half from this place this morning. The cause of death was in evidence in the Uitipc of a rifle, but  whether it was a case of suicide or  murder- will not be known until the  arrival of the coroner who has been  telegraphed for.  Michael Sullivan, a popular pioneer  succumbed to pneumonia at the Kamloops hospital on Monday. Mr.  Sullivan's illness asserted itself only  three days before his death and the  end curie suddenly. Deceased leaves  a widow and daughter _ to mourn his  loss. The funeral was largely attended.  McDonald, Conservative Has a  64 Majority with Two Places  to Hear From���������Government  Popular.  Lir.Looisr, Aug. 18.���������The election of  Mr. A. McDonald, the Conservative  candidate for Lillooet riding by a  large majority is now assured. Candidate McDonald has now a handsome  majority of 0-1 with two places to hear  from which will undoubtedly increase  his majority.  Returns from tho Lillooet election  are not complete, but from figures  already received the election of Ah:  McDonald, the government candidate,  is certain.  Thore is very littlo to be said about  the election at the present time. It  will be contended by the Opposition  press that the election of the Government candidate was duo to lavish  promises by the members of the administration; but we aie assured that  all statements to that effect are abso  lutely foundationless. Even if the  Government was inclined to promise  public works here and there, as alleged  there were no demands for appropriations by the electors. It was a straight  issue as between the Government and  the Opposition, and whatever may be  the final result it is to be accounted  for on the issue as presented by the  speakers, ancl, of course, to some extent by the respective popularity of  the candidates. -*  Mr." John Oliver, who was prominent in the fight, made a 'strong point  of the taxation issue, but with little  effect. The feeling generally expressed  was one of satisfaction.  jt. jt. Jt. Jt. Jt. .*!*. Jt. .it. jt. jt. .*8*. .'  TJ rr I.T.I ITI I.T* ..T..TT.I i.f I If I If I ITI 'T***  '. Jt. ������t. .*!*. Jt. Jt.

McRao  made speeches at the Grit meeting in  Vancouver on Tuesday evening last.  The coast papeis did not publish a  lengthy report of their utterances,  but they probably referred to the  defeat of the Grit candidate at Lillooet, the Dundonald incident, and a  few remarks on the splendid work  done by Bill'Galliher's dredge,, winding up with a brief reference to tho  "shorn lambs of Revelstoke."  Lady De Lotbiniere Dies:  Lady de Eotbiniere, wife of His  Honor the Lieutenant-Governor, Sir  Henri July de Lotbiniere. died Monday  evening at Government House at 8  o'clock, after a lingering illness.

Mob Burns Murderers  Statesboro, Ga., Aug. 10.���������With  clothing saturated with kerosine,  writhing and twisting in their agony,  screaming to heaven for the mercy  that the mob would not show, Paul  Reed and Will Cato, negroes, two of  the principals in the murder and  burning of Henry Hodges and wife  and three children, six miles from  Statesboro, were burned at She stake.  The Spy Glass  J. A. Magee, superintendent of the  Spy Glass Mine, at the head of Poplar  Creek, was in the city on Monday and  to a Herald man confirmed the report that a shoot of native silver ore  had been struck in the No. 2 tunnel  on that property. The showing is a  good one. Before the native silver  had been encountered they passed  through 8 inches of high grade gray  copper assaying high in gold and  Silver,  First White Woman.  A despatch from London says:  "Jlrs. W. N. MacMillan of St. Louis  reached London today after traversing  Abyssinia at - the head of her own  caravan. She is the first white woman to cross Emperor Menelik's country  from west to east. She accompanied  the expedition organized by her hus-  btflid.us far as Pokum, at the base of  the Abyssinian hills". Then Mr. Mac-  millan started for Lake Rudolf and  his wife went to Adis Abeda. the capital of Abyssinia, where she had a  special audience with the Emperor.  Jlrs. MacMillan's caravan took four  weeks to journey from' Pokum to the  capital. She met with every courtesv  by the0 Abyesinian chiefs while on her  way."��������� Victoria Colonist.  Mrs. MacMillan's husband is a Canadian and a cousin of Mrs. B. A. Law-  son of this city.  Lead Pipe Manufacturing:.  The establishment of lead pipe  works by the C. P.

Hitherto all of our lead  ores and bullion had to be exported at  a heavy cost which ultimately' the  users of lead manufactures had to pay  without the producer getting a proportionate amount. The cost of transportation from smelter' to refinery,  thence to-the manufacturer, both in a,  foreign country, tlience back to'the  consumer in .Canada, also..duties, all  had to .be paid for by" the-producer"  and consumer of lead.

The  Japanese acrobats were exceptionally  good, while,the circus riding, performing animals, trapeze performers, tumblers, etc., were fully up to the standard of the ordinary circus. One thing  they did lack which was very noticeable and which is a necessary adjunct  to all good circuses, was a good clown.  In all other respects the Floto Shows  were superior to anything of the kind  previously visiting the city.  Horses For Sale.  A team of Horses, weight about  2700 lbs.

A Face t  IFrom Memory!  ���������W?VWVW������  anil listened to the trivial drivel of  her- communications; By tho third  sitting I had begun to dread hcr- as  a recurring nightmare. Tliere was  something monstrously unnatural  about her smooth face, steady smile,  nnd unseeing eyes. Surely, if sho  were but an average woman, r.:c-  1 bought she might, recall me by somo  trick of gesture, speech or'other  mannerism. "Jt was as humiliating  as  a  ship   in   tiro  face.  Brit no. She whispered forth hcr  foolish chatter aliout dear I.inly. 15.  niul Mrs. A., the distressing leg, and  the charming gowns of lust night's  play, as il' 1 were no more to her  than a huirilresser. Only when she  mentioned lire boy did I show my  interest in her tongue. I ihould  think she praised him for* his "nice-  ness" five times irr the three sitting's.  "No; Inm rrot his guiir-limi, Sirs.  ���������Swindon," 1 told hcr cttrlli/ vv.io'i,  on tho third occasion, sho rait the  question point blank. "To 'he lest  of my belief there's nothing about  hlrn to guard, except hi.s senses and  his simplicity. They're both his affair���������not  mine,   thank  Heaven!"  She breathed a reflective "Oh!" to  that, followed nt nn'intcrvnl by "Jn-  tloed!" And then, for tho lirst time,  I cnuglit myself wondering what kind  of a girl she had for a (laughter. I  hadn't encouraged Isniah an the subject.  I wondered still more wlien I had  finished that study rrom memory,  and liad dismissed Mrs. Swindon  with a basely cordial "Good-bye,"  nnd an assuanrce that she was a  perfect sitter, and that the result  finite satisfied me.  "You don't warrt to see it, then*?"  I asked her iinully. And, with a  little picturesque shiver of dissent,  sho Iiu'd said :  "No, no, Mr. Willing, indeed I  don't!" It-was what, she said next  that withheld mr from smiting hcr  by insisting. "For though I'm  suro you've mndo the best, of mo, I���������-  .1���������I'm nn old woman nt heart, and  I should be shocked by the. hypocrisy  of it all. J'rJut the young may have  thoir- illusions, mayn't thoy Mr. Willing? My dear little 'daughter' will  see only the good in me, and���������I  would liko her to do just thnt."  And so it was "good-bye," and I  wirs left engrossed in the sweet face  which 1 had drawn out of tlio past;  tlio candid young eyes which I had  kissed once, tho sensitive mouth  which bad    told mc    that slie loved  me,- but  Th'c subsequent and  now  late Mr.  Swindon  was the  "but."  Arrd then, .wlien I was in .'the other  room (for I required' a little refreshment to clear me of this maudlin lit)  what, should happen? The boy came  in with' a ���������young lndy.

I gave   iny  nephew Isaiah J2mpson  n  look     that  mnde him open his mouth and .stare.  Arid  then she spoke.  "Jt  is    so    charming of you,    Mr.  Willing,   to   undertake   to  paint     ray  portrait.

While she spoko she freed lier   face  from     its   gossamer  grey   silk     veil.  For an absurd moment or two I expected  a  sudden break  in hcr  Words  nnd ".in  outcry.   But no;  she iinisHod  her      speech���������doubtless     a    prepared  speech���������and   smiled  calmly.      Twenty  years  had  dono  something  for     her,  but nothing to  what they Iind    done  for- me.-        -She    had  not  a  wrinkle,  whereas I was a bald and corrugated  veteran  in     spectacles,   changed     beyond recognition,  both' in name   ond  appearance.  "It's Mrs. Swindon,  Uncle.    Tom!"  exclaimed the    boy'anxiously.      "We  weren't nt liberty  to mention  names  before.     It's awfully jolly that   you  can do it!  Jlrs. Swindon  took   some  persuading,   but���������-"���������  "When one's youth lias passed, Mr.  Willing," murmured my visitor melodiously,     "one     ought  not  to   think  iike thot  of  oneself.        But  it  is  so  good   of you.   A  gentleman  in   your  posilion,   who  paints  only for     love  oi his art."  Shc shrugged faintly, and lier smilo  was vers* pretty. The smile was rather for the boy thnn for me; another devastating testimony to the  use of a bald head nnd spectacles  after twenty years.  '���������Yes,"  1  snid.    "I can     begin     at  once  if  you  like,  "Mrs.  Swindon."  "Can you really, Uncle Tom?"  cried that eager boy.  "If it suits Mm. Swindon. I can."  I said. "But ITdon't want j*ou in  thc  way."  lie laughed and said "Good-bye"  to mj- subject ceremoniously; and I  was alone with the matured Catherine Lewes of my heart's desire.  Ha, ha!

But : what  good? The past wns beyond patching, nnd I did not want to patch it.  .Now--that I felt Any power, I could  treat her as a" mere subject.  "I can spare you an hour, Mr.  Willing," she said. "Where shall I  sit? It is only the face my child  wants. I don't mind what you  make of mc; I sha'n't want to' see  the thing.

It happened nt tho Shogun's  Court two hundred j'enrs ago, nnd  it is thus retold: Now it happened  that a certain provincial lord, Asano  of Ako. liad been charged with' thn  dufy of currying out the reception of  nn envoy of the Mikado.  Asniro, a bluff lighting man. well  aware of Iris deficiencies, consulted  another nobleman, an experienced  supple, well born aristocrat named  Kirn, Kirn sneered at honest Asano,  and even told hirrr to stoop and tie  his shoe-string. I'he liot blood of all  tho Asirros rose at this wanton insult. Out came tho great two-handed  sword, nnd next moment the proud  but cowardly Kira was lleeing through  tho palace with a great gash' in his  cheek.  To make an uproar- in tho palace  was .crime punishable by death. Ar  board of punishment condemned tho  much-provoked Asnno to commit  suicide by tlio traditional method or"  disembowelmerrt, his castle was confiscated, his family declared extinct,  his clan  disbanded.  Meanwhile'the'dead lord's clansmen  had arranged a plan of campaign.  They wore now what tlie Japanese  called J.onfn���������"wavemen"���������servants  without a master, wanderers without  a home. They met, and swore vengeance.  FAITHFUL RETAINERS.  Oishi, tho head retaining, ordered  his men to separate. Some took to  mean trades, and in the guise of artisans and pedlars gained access to  Kira's mansion. Slowly thoy collected information as to his habits, the  precautions he was taking, and the  intricacies of his houso and garden.  Oishi 1'iimsolf, to disarm suspicion,  plunged into dissipation. He threw  aside, his 'well-loved wife and children, was seen lying drunk in the gutters, and conducted himself.lis a man  lost to till  sense of shame and  duty.  Two years thus passed.

The  children   stood   up   and   repeated  the Lord's l'rayer  in unison.  "Sit then," snid  the master.  Usually  the session begun  with  the  singing  of a  hymn,   but  thc  dominie  explained  that  us several of his  best  singers  wero  absent,   ho  did   not  feel  like     liaving     the  singing  before     a  stranger.  At. the close of tlie prayer he asked several pupils to repeat certain  of the commandments, and toll what  wa.s meant by them. Tlie whole  hour- wns spent in these and other  exercises of a religious character.  Thc master said it was tho hour of  "the conscience clause." Attendance  was not compulsory, nnd any parents who choso could keep their children out till it wns ovor. But ns a  matter of fact, few of them took advantage  of this privilege.  At ten o'clock tho master called  off tho thirty-six names he had on  his roll, nnd then he bade his oldest  class read Sir- Walter "Jcotfs poem,  "The Battle  of Flodden." ���������  This class of seniors, wliieli tho  master spoke of as "the sixth standard," recited sitting in the corner  next the platform, with their backs  against the continuous wall desk.  Every child kept thc samo key of  voice right through, and only usod  punctuation marks to catch' breath.  One would think the poem itself conveyed no meaning to their minds,  and that tlrey were simply reciting a  list  of words.  After the reading thc master put  some questions to th'o class, beginning with, "Whore is Flodden?" If  tho ones questioned hesitated, he  hastened tlieir wits by exclaiming,  "Come on, now!"  Besides geographical r.nd historical  questions he asked meanings of  .'words, had the pupils parse and  spell, and sometimes called for tho  Latin derivation of a word. When  ho had doubts as to whether tho  children wero going **.p answer, he  would give a partial reply himself,  as, for instance, whon ho asked,  "What is the meaning of volley?"  Pause. "What is it, Jessie?" Anxious silence, which the master breaks  by saying, "A great many guns." He  lingered ovcr every word in tho hope  tfhat tlie girl would catch tho cue���������  "going olT at thc same t���������"  "Time." says Jessie, quickly, and  tliat passed for nn answer. Tlie pupils picked thc final word of nn answer- off the teacher's tongue in that  way again .nn'd ngain, and ho would  dwell on the first letter- of the kes'-  word as long as ho could, and lean  forward in keen anxiety th.nt thc pupil should not force him to pronounce it all. Usually liis efforts  'met witli a prompt reward, and lie  could settle back in relief and in  pride   over   liis  pupils'   ability.  SOME   LOMI WOEIERS  A    STRANGE  INDUSTRIAL   EXHIBITION.

The vicar  of an Knst End parish conceived tho  idea ot showing the processes of  manufacture, with prices paid for  labor, of many articles of common  uso in London. It reveals a condition which no longer gives tho Englishman a churrco to point his finger  lit Herman sweating methods. The  Loudon Daily News devotes a.column  of description to tho exhibition and  ii description of visits to the homes  of the workers.  Judging from what I have, scon,  says tho writer, I should sny that  the sempstress is tlio most sweated  or all Jurist End workers. I wonder  whether tho ladies who sliop in , the  West End nro aware that the filmy  summer blouses for which they , puy  from seven to ten shillings are sewn  together bj' some poor soul in an  Kast End garret for twopence farthing, or that there aro thoso of their  own flesh nrrd blood who sit .until  tho small hours making men's coats  for sixpence eneh.  It is a long timo-since Tom Hood  wrote "Tho song of thc Shirt," but  the conditions remain as in his day.  Mori's Oxford shirts are still seamed  nnd guessetted and buttonholed and  buttoned for a penny three-farthings  each'. And yet these peoplo sing  "Kule, Britannia," ns heartily as if  they knew not shivers'.  MAKING MATCH-BOXES.  Match boxes arc a famous side lino  of the sweater, but so much has been  written on this subject that there is  little new to say. A woman is at  work in the exhibition, but 1  thought I would see the process in  tho home; and cnlled at tho address  of u match-box maker in an adjoining slum. On a doorstep sat a  dirty-faced litt.'e urchin, caressing,  with'maternal solicitude, his baby  brother. In an upstair back room  tho mother was busily engaged in  making thc common chip and paper  box. Her husband was a laborer,  she told mc, moie often out of work  thnn in, so she supplemented thc pro-  carious income hs*. doing this work  at home.  "How much do I get? Well, twopence half-penny for a gross, and I  can do seven gross in the das'. But  that takes me from two o'clock until  midnight."  "All -this, Iio wo ver, savours of  wealth when compared with thc lot  of thc man who makes mousetraps. I  was shown a sample of the ordinary  wooden mousetrap-of conimercc. The  maker has to' buy the wood, cut to  shape and nail together, buy and  their cut tlio wire into lengths, and  make the spring. Having completed  ono, hc has to make 143 more cxact-  Iv like it, nnd then he is ready to go  out and seek a purchaser, If hc is  in luck be gets ls 3d for tho gross.

In a room in Tag street an old  woman of 73 makes lhe tin labels by  means of which tho East End bakers mark their customers' dinners on  Sunda.vs. Bent nnd wretched, the  poor old sorrl grapples with the oddments of tin, which she shears to the  correct si/e, stamps with a number,  and finally punches with a hole in  which thc skewer may be inserted.  At this she earns sixpence a day.  "They, givo mc a shilling for 200,  but 1 can only do half that in a day  now  because iny cough is so  bud."  A tragedy,  indeed,  in. a tin label.  Iii an attic overlooking one of the  most malodorous sections of the 11c-  gent's Canal a woman has been living for years, earning her own living and 'that of hcr three girls by  stitching boot tippets.

Made   of  the  Skin  of the "Square  Flipper" Seal.  The skill of the Eskimo is shown  in the excellence of the things lic  manufactures from a slender stock of  material. Without nails, for the  most part- without iron, his sleds  and boats are made firm and strorrg.  Tho fastenings are of home-made  cord. The author of "Across tlio  Sub-Arctics of Canada" tells how  the Eskimo makes the Inshiiig-thoiigs  and heavy lines for hunting purposes, nnd tho small threj^l for sewing.  A heavy Harpoon Ihu"', ueed irr tho  hunt for* securing walnirrw, is made  of tho skin of tho "sqirure flipper"  soul, an unimril nbout crgjit foet  long. For siroli use. the skin is not  removed from the seal in. the usual  way, but is pulled oil' without cutting it, as one might pull off n wet  stocking. Thc whole hide is thus  preserved in tlio form of a suck. It  is then placed in water anil allowed  to remain there several days, until  tho thin outer blnck skin becomes  decomposed. This,, together witli tho  hair, is readily pecdled ofi", arrd a  clean white pelt remains.  Two men thon take the pelt in  hand, and with a sharp' knife cut  it into one long, even whito line by  beginning at one end and cutting  round enrd round until they rcailh  tho other end. Ono skin will mako  three hundred feet of lino. In this  condition it is allowed partially to  dry, after which it is tightlyr. stretched and dried thoroughly in tlio sun.  Thc result is a hard, oven white  line, throo-eigliths of an inch in diameter, but equal in strength' to a  heavy  Manila  ropo.  I have seen such a lino embedded  in the flesh' of a walrus at one end  and spiked to tho hard ice nt tho  other end by a stout iron pin. Hold  by six men, it plowed a fur-row six  inches deep through tho ice, bent the  spike and dragged thc six men to  the edge of the ico, whore tho tug  of war ended; the victorious walrus  took tho unbrcakablo line with him  into the sen.  Finer lines, such ns thoso used for  fishing or for winding whip-stocks,  and thread for sowing purposes, arc  manufactured from reindeer sinew.  The best is that obtained from  along the spine, which* is always  saved froni the carcass. Tlio Eskimo prepares it by drying it .iird thon  rubbing it till it grows quite soft.  Then it is readily frayed, out into  fine fibres, whicli are usod for needlework, r,  When coarser thread is rucpiircd,  these im'divid'unl fibres arc plaited together with wonderful neatness nnd  rapidity. Cue woman can make fifty or sixty .yards of this thread in  a day.  ���������..*.���������:<.:���������.:.���������:..:..".���������;..:..:..-..���������..���������..:..  ;������������������?'  ���������:������������������:���������������:������������������:������������������!>  HEALTH  .;./v  THE AMATEUR NURSE.  rhe hor.i-ynroon  wns rudels*  interrupted   !>;*���������   tho   sudden   disappearance-   of j  his   l\s-\enr-old   wife a week after tho i ���������     ..- ��������� ���������.  mrifri.rgo-wuir-a-mrmc.--admircr-.Shelsl'e hns_to-do   l.y-l"^----^,c-.^s  never  c.unr  back  to   Paris,   hut     she   am   faces,   stitcliM   and   luins    back  Tie  lavs down | ami  lim man she lied   will, were trnc-   ;������akes     and     st riches    wc    C        ttonr-  .���������rica  some    months   holes, nnd sews on tuel*.e buttons   If  the  boot     is  lo  have  an ornamental  ed   to   South   Arncr'i  I.

Fleas From Infected Animals  Carried  Diphtheria.  London, ' England, medical officers  of health, have been investigating the  danger of disease whicli is spread by  domestic pets. This danger they regard as very serious, and an active  campaign in tho near, future is ro-'  garded as a pressing necessity.   .  The wandering cat is the greatest  source of danger in London. Its evil  work as a disease-carrier has been  made a subject of special study, and  a few months ago Dr. A. W. Martin,  tho filedical Oflicer* of Health for  Gorton, an outlying district of Manchester.,, publishes a paper on tliis  question in Punlic Health, in which  hc suggested that the great increase  of diphtheria in London was due to  the disease being convcs*ed by fleas  from infected  animals.  He shows that pigeons and fowls  suffer from a form of diphtheria, and  arc infested with fleas. Hc ^further  shows that the cats of thc neighborhood congregate wherever tliere is a  pigeon coto or fowl run.  From this hc deduces that cats  bring the infected fleas from tho  birds into tho liouses,-"and thus  sproud  the disease.  An experiment with a cat showed  that in four nights it deposited 248  liens' eggs on the spot where it lay  in tho house.  Then Dr. Martin proceeds to ������h?*Y_  how children are especially liable to  contract diphtheria in this wny.  Under one year of age, thc child is  nearly always in thc arms or the  cradle'; from ono to two it is crawling on the floor and the rug; and  from that age until it goes to school,  it is playing with or nursing the  cat.  Thus, thc children become infected,  contract diseases, nnd, in turn,  spread thein. Thc enormous increase  of diphtheria in recent years is put  down to this theory.  Althougth this is decidedly the ago  of tho trained nurse, there arc thousands of families who tako care of  relatives and friends through every  sort of illness, from whooping cough  to tyi-liold, and thero aro so mimy  things that the home nurse can do  to make n patient comfortable and  to keep a sick room wholesome without any special trouble or expense,  nml with jist a little knowledge of  simple facts tlrat it scenrs important  to talk about tlrcf.o things as often  as possible, so that thc untrained  woman who aro devoutedly kind and  untiringly patient may also know  how to prove themselves capable  and really useful.      ' .  In the first place, if s'ou nro unexpectedly called upon, say, to care  for a member- of the family suddenly  taken down with scarlet fever, you  must not only nurse your patient,  but guard members of your family  from contagion, n|nd j'ou must start  doing the right things at the very  beginning.  Clean out your sick room nt tho  start. Send away nil draperies, carpets and curtains tliat will not  wash; put nwny useless bric-a-brac  and upholstered furniture; and clean  out all hooks. Have pretty, frosli  irene'd while lawn ciu'tains at tho-  windows, a few jars for flowers, nnd  anything else tlint is cheerful, nnrl  not an abiding place for disease  germs. Ret a good sized screen, so  that sroii can have plenty of clear  air, without draights, and sco lo it  that thci'o is a washable or old rug  by tho~ hed, plenty of pillows arrd  neat "bedding.   ,  Witli a room made easy to clean  nnd disinfect, next turn youi- attention to your dress. ��������� It must be cotton, and plain, as mucli after tho  fashion of a nurse's uniform as y*ou  con quickly and conveniently prrt together���������that is, shoa't skirt, wliite  aprons, and a cap, if yourNhair is  at all oily and likely to hold germs.  In any case, covered hair is a wise  precaution. Wear noiseless slipper's,  rro clinking watch chains and no jew-'  ellery.  If you want a simple antiseptic for  use all througih lire sick room, got  some pure borax tl.e first day. Tako .*  a quart of warm water and put into it as much borax as it will hold  in solution, and uso tho solution, a  half cup to a gallon of water, for  all disinfecting and washing. W-������shi  tho woodwork, furniture and ilobr  with this water, all dresses beforo  they nre sent to thc laundry) and  dip n.ll bedding a.nd clothing In it beforo sending theni to the.-laundry. A'  weak solution of the original solu--  tion is.excellent for bathing the patient and for a daily mouth wash. It  is also valuable for bathing wounds  and for washing tho nurse's hands, after the dressing of wounds.  A floor should novor bc swept in a  room where there is a contagious  disease. It should bc washed with  a cloth dipped in borax "waler. so  that no dust annoys the patient, and  no assortment of germs nre flung up  in thc air, to drift out of thc window into thc hall eu route to fresh  victims.

Young children, as soon as tho first  teeth appear,   should  bc given     little  tooth-brushes  with  very  soft bristles "  and   should  bc   taught  to  use  thcm,  nnd  then   watched  to   sec   that  thoy  nlways-ilo-use-thera,.���������But-ns-to- in   fauts, thc toilet of the luoulth must  be performed for thcm. and -should  never Lc neglected. For this purpose a little wad of .sterilized absorbent cotton should bc usod. and  tlicn thrown away, or rather burned.  When the baby has its bath the  mouth should, ns n' matter of i*ou-  tine, to washed icry gently with a  pledget of cotton wet in a solution  of borncic acid, or any other mild  disinfecting liquid. ** If the little  guars are soft and spongy and bleeding, dabbling them witli tincture of  myrrh  will  help thcm.  The reason for nil this care is the  same renson that makes the careful  adult use his tooth-brush scrupulously after each meal���������-namely, that  harmful germs constantly exist in  tho mouths -of all of us, even the  healthiest, and babies, although they  liave no teeth, are no exception to  this rule. If their mouths arc not  kept clean not only are tho coming  teeth jeoprndized, , but tho child's  general condition may bc lowered by  the constant presence in the moulh.  nnd consequently the passage through  tho system, of health-injuring microbes.  In illness a small child's sud'orings  are often . greatly aggravated by  parching of the lips and tongue, and  it is unable to tell what tho trouble  is.

There lias seldom been a season  when the bolt has been ' such an important part of a woman's toilette  as it is this year. Kelts and girdles arc shown in infinite variety,  und instead of or.o or two, My Lady  feels it necessary to have half a  dozen.  Hanging in price from 50 cents to  $o, as they do, tho financial item  Is by no means inconsiderable. So  inuny ingenious girls ure making  their own, and really put together  some very tasteful cinctures. A bolt  is, of course, comparatively simple,  but a girdle is not a thing to bo  thrown together carelessly. It must  bo properly ma'de, or it has neither  fit nor sts'le.  There nro to be obtained canvas  foundations, already boned, for tho  small sum of 10 cents. If those  foundations happen to fit the figuro  the work of building ,a girdle is  greatly simplified. Otherwise, a  model should bo carefully fitted, and  a pattern cit of it, from which others may be cut on occnsloii. The  foundation must be boned every two  inches to insure shapeliness.  " Most of the girdles are nearly  straight rn the lower edge and  pointed nt the uprer. Other modes  arc pointed at the bottom, but never as deeply as above. A properly  shaped girdle is becoming to a long-  waisted woman; th"8 short-waisted  ono  should   stick  to   belts.  Tlio favorite girdle is wide in tlio  back and graduated to about an  inch in width at tlio front, and  thoro are mans" forms of it. A pretty  mode is- about four inches wido in  the back, the silk being shirred three  times on the centro -back and again  on each side, fastening in front with  a pointed end slipped through a  crocheted silk ring, under which v������ a  liook and e}"0 for fastening. The silk  is as often laid in pleats, when tho  silk ring in front is supplemented  witlr smaller ones set along the  bones. Tint taffeta or crocheted  buttons aro sot quite close together  down tho middle back and sido boning on some belts, and moke a pretty finish. Cue pretty belt hnd a  high pointed back laid in pleats,  tailoring from about four inches in  the centre to half that width on thc  sides, where it was met by pointed  and stitched straps coming from the  front, and set on with smgll buttons.  Sjftl another requires five bands of  inch' and a half ribbon set at tho  back through crocheted rings. and  tapering to a single width in front.  M.idc of Dresden ribbon, such a girdle is. a great addition to a summer  gown. Liberty satin ribbon .makes  charming girdles or bolts, it is so  soft and pliable.  A dainty girdle of narrow velvet  ribboiC consisted of four straps of  half inch velvet separated bsr their  own width. Tlie upper straps wero'  gradually drown down into the lower, which followed tho curve of the  waist line. To conceal tho centre  back boning, tiny bows wero set on  between the strcrs. Ihe open spaces between the straps disclosed tho  waist  below.  Tho secret of making a sts'lish  girdle consists in, making it take the  curve in tlie back, which draws it  in to fit the figuro. Tliis can usually be" effected, by stretching tho material a vcry little tighter just at  the  waist lino.  TEMPTING- THINGS.  Little .sunbonnels of gaylj'-figured  muslin, with an interlining pleated  full around the face, and strings of  the material arc well fitted to protect the youthful face and neck* from  the sun, although open to the objection of being vcry warm and confining. However, as they are picturesque and fashionable, thes' will  be worn. ' The ordinary style costs  CO cents.  Shirt waist patterns of white linen, with inlet Mexican embroidery,  cost So. The trimming consists of  a strip 'down the front, with n curving i>attern at each side, reaching to  the shoulder scam, two pieces for  ���������cuflSj-ond-a-tricornered-pioce-foi-Uie-  back, as well ns curved backpioces.  whicli continue the embroidery side  pic.es up the front. As white linen  is virtually new every time it is  laundricd, these waists arc not unprofitable.  The banquet lamp still reigns in  all Its glory, and rivals other means  of lighting.

Women Who Play a Prominent  Part in the War.  Tiie Eed Cross nurse is one of the  redeeming features of war. The Japanese Hed Cross nurse is a particular's,   redeeming feature.  Most women are born nurses ���������a  small woman of five s'ears old is a  moro intelligent nurse than a full-  grown man���������but the Japanese woman is peculiarly fitted for tiie trade.  With her soft hands and ner work-  womanlike ways, sho can look nf'or  a sick or wounded man in a most miraculous  manner.  Sick or injured, say travellers in  tho cast, we would rather bo nursed,  by an English woman than any other woman, but if no English woman  were there���������send for a Japai.-i.su woman. ���������  Here is a picture of the Japanese  nurse from Airs.- "Archibald Utile's  charming book, "A Diplomatist's  Wife in  Japan":���������  "Afy first Japanese train rd nurse���������  1 shall never forget tlie day when  sho flri.1. loomed on iny. ua'-uri's.hod  vision. - Slro was barely fuiii* feet  high, hor complexion was dark in  the extreme, her foot were encased in  white linen socks with' divided toos,  and shod with dainty straw sandals  witli green velvet straps.

"Into this belt, holding her breath  for a long time, sho could, witli a  groat effort, push her fat silver  watch, her clirrical thermometer, two  or three yards of a Japanese letter  (whicli she would road, a foot at a  time, when she thought I was asleep)  hor carefully folded podket-handker-  chief, and tlio relentless little register in which she noted down, from  right to loft, strange cabalistic  signs, witli which she and tho doctor  .conjured overy morning till they knew  all tlio signs my pulse and temperature had boon committing for tlie  last twenty-four hours."

' JOHI DHEISTIAN WATSOI  NEW  PREMIER     OF   AUSTRALIAN COMMONWEALTH.  He" Was a Newspaper Compositor  in Sydney Only a Few .  Years Ago.  Australia is a land of surprises, especially in political affuirs. Only a  few years ago John Christian Watson was a journeyman compositor in  a Sydnej* newspaper office. To-day  Iio is Prime Minister of tho Australian  Commonwealth.  Such a maa must possess exceptional force of character, nnd Mr.  Watson is no exception to tho rule.  He is the son of British parents residing at Valparaiso, Chile,  where hc was born some 37 years  ngo. While yet a child he accompanied his parents from Soutii America to New Zealand, where he received his elementary education und  served his apprenticeship as a compositor.  In duo course he loft New Zealand  and/camc to Sydney, whero he took  nn active part in labor politics. In  1901 ho wns elected a member of  tho Commonwealth' Parliament,  whero ho speedily came to the front  and, despite his comparative youth-  fulness and lack of experience, found  himself-* leading tlio labor members,  wiio instinctively recognized hiiu as  tlieir chief.  Mr. Watson rose to tlie occasion  and proved himself the man of the  hour. He recognized nt once the pliability of Sir Edmund Barton's Ministry. He saw the supremo importance of his support to tho lifo of  tlie Government, and soon began to  barter that support on terms most  advantageous to his parts'.  THE  TASK  WAS  NOT EASY.  Ho presided over a part}' which,  while it was united in its main" ami  differed widely concerning the degree J  to whicli it should go. But the influence of Mr. Watson assisted in  bringing tlie whole of the party into  lino witli his views.  His policy vvas to avoid tlio responsibilities _of office and be content  witli piping the tune to which the  Federal Ministry liad to dance. Sir  Edmund Barton did not share tho  semi-socialist views of Mr. Watson,  but lie had not the courage to dis-  avow them and was unwilling to  sacrifice thc honors and emoluments  of his position.  His utter subservience to tlio labor  party prepared the way for increased  demands, which . culminated in the  demand by Mr. Watson, on belialf of  his followers, for the introduction of  tlie Federal Arbitration bill, with  provisions giving the Federal Arbitration Court the power of fixing the  rate of wages and conditions of labor of every individual���������including  members of the naval, military and  polico forces���������employed by the Federal and  Slate governments.  But ��������� Mr. - Deaken, the Australian  Prime Minister, was made of sterner  stuff than Sir Edmund Barton. About  the same age as-Mr. Watson, and,  like him, formerl.v a compositor in  a ncwspnper_gllicc, lie declined'to bc  driven into what hc regarded as ,a  gross violation of State rights, for  tlie provisions demanded by Mr. Watson virtually amounted to the Commonwealth's seeking to. deprive tlie  Stale governments and Parliaments  of tho control of the public expenditure and handing it over to an independent and irresponsible tribunal.  Mr. Deaken, in resisting tho demands  of Mr. Watson, wa.i supported Iiy  Mr. Reid, leader of the opposition,  but  THE  OBNOXIOUS "CLAUSES  HE'S OSLt OUE  OUT" 01 SCORES  BUT     DODD'S    KIDNEY     PILLS  MADE HIM A NEW MAN.

When he meets Parliament  at tho bead of the Labor Ministiy,  he will find himself confronted" by. a  solid .coalition of Ministerialists and  members of the opposition, headed by  Mr. Reid, protectionists and free  traders allowing the fiscal question  to remain in abeyance for Hie time  being.  Finding himself at tlio mercy of a  hostile majority, Mr. Watson way  induce his fallowers to accept a  moderate and conciliatory policy.  Should he fail in this, his defeat is  inevitable. Personally, hc is equal  to the situation,  but the trouble    is  .witli-. the extreme menibers_of_,_his  party.  Mr. Ilcid's accession to the office  of Prime Minister with Mr. Deaken,  Sir George Turner and Sir John  Forrest included in his Ministry,  would bc speedily followed by the  abolition of the regulation prohibiting the employment of colored labor  in oversea mail contracts, and a general revision of the labor legislation  of thc Inst three j-ears.

Royal     Bootmaker    Talks of  Royal Footwear.  Tlie King wears an 8} boot'  his foot is well proportioned,  says Mr. Loo Thomas of St. James'  street, London, the royal bootmaker,  in nn interesting interview on the  King's boots, which appears ia thc  current number of Footwear.  His Majesty has practically a pair  of boots for every uniform he wears,  besides walking boots, walking shoes,  evening shoes,  and shooting boots.  It is a popular delusion that tlie  King orders his boots in large quantities. This is not the case. ne  orders, as a rule, only one pair at a  time, although occasionally several  pairs are required for specific purposes, and which differ from each  other, are included in one order.  "The King," said Mr. Thomas,  "knows precisely what he wants, and  insists upon having it. He is one  of the greatest students of detail I  know, and I liave come in contact  with a great number of people, " as  you can well imagine. There is not  an ornament, a button, or a particular stylo but wliat he remembers,  even aftor "the lapse of a long period  since tho goods were orignally made  for him."  As for material,     tlie King    never  BROWNS  AND BLUES.  Tn browns,^ dcaf-leiaf and tortoise-  shell shades are favorites, and moi-  dre, a light golden brown, is beautiful. One shade of brown verges on  burnt  orange.  Blues have always been more popular tlian browns; presumably because  more women can wear them," and because there are more blue-eyed women than any othor colored-eye variety. Brciwns have'to be selected  witli care. There is a popular notion that browns look well on overy  one, whereas blue is far more likely  to look bettor on most people. The  woman* wiio looks her best in light  golden browns should beware.of tho  rod browns and vice versa." Tho  dead-leaf browns are just the thing  for certain brown-haired, brown-eyed  women, who can't venture, on any  other shade without losing their color charm. Browns arc best suited  to brown and liazel^eyed women, and  to tho brown hair, and also to tlio  creamy skin which should go with  tho ha7el or brown eyes and liair.  Tllie shade of brown to be worn depends largely on the shade of brown  in the liair.

Lawyers who aro usod to examining witnesses know well that sometimes thoy must lot a man toll tlio  story in his own way or ho may not  talk at all. A county court judge  tolls, in The Cornhill Magazine,- somo  of his odd experiences with eccentric  and stupid witnesses.  Oni man was brought up for not  paying his rent.

THE     FIFTY    MILLION     DOLLAR  WORLD'S  FAIR   ST.   LOUIS.  District Passenger Agent McDonald  of tho Grand Trunk Railway who  recently returned from St. Louis,  states tlrat it is liard to find suitable language to describe tho magnitude and beauty of the greatest Exposition  ever  held.  Tlie site of 1240 acres being two  miles long and one mile wide, is  covered wifi beautiful buildings,  broken witli lagoons,. canals, 'grand  courts, monuments, statuary, parEs,  'etc.-, all forming a picture that must  be seen to  bo realized.  An Electrical railway, called the  Intramural, makes it easy to: get  from one part of tho grounds to  another, and follow out the daily  programme, enjoying an hour listening to "Sousa's" or other famous  bands, or taking in a lecture or address,  or Art  Gallery.  When you consider 'lie immensity  of the buildings, one alone having  over 20 acres of floor space, and reflect that thoy aro filled with tlio  choicest of exhibits from all over  the world, one exhibitor vying with  another to obtain the coveted Gold  Medal, it seems to suggest the  thought of wliat a grand opportunity and an education it will bo, to  tho young men and women of out-  land, to spend a week or two at  St. Louis this year. Really no intelligent mail, woman or child can  afford to miss this groat World's  treat.  Tho beautiful Electric lighting of  the Pan American Exposition, which  few thought would ever be approached is entirely eclipsed by this Monster Fair.  Ono of the features of tho fair, is  the "Insido Inn," a hotel accommodating (5,000, splendidly run, and at  reasonablo  rates.  Tlie total expenses of a trip to St.  Louis based on half-railway rates,  is within the reach of all and permits stop ovcr at Chicago, and other  points, and tlie trip is made quickly  and comfortnbly.  It is the intention of tlie Grand  Trunk to run through cars from  Montreal and Toronto to St. Louis,  commencing June 13th, and possibly  before.

THE KOOTENAI OUTRAGE;  XVe. have already referred to the dishonest, as well as cowardly tactics, of  the Dominion Government, in ���������withdrawing the constituencies of Kootenay and Yale-Cariboo from those to  vote  simultaneously  at   the  general | Pacific!  control over certain industries, yet  voted for and advocated permission  being given by parliament to the  Ottawa Electric Light Company to  absorb another local company and  thus increase the tax upon the poor.  More serious still, Mr. Galliher voted  against a proposition to malce the  Gratid Trunk Pacific a state owned  rail way, although be knew that Canadian taxpayers wove contributing  $L0O,000 to every $10,000 promised by  the promoters of the Grand Trunk  This may be statesmanship.  ll  election.'v'The.'��������� contention was, that  there would be insufficient time between the day of nomination and (be  flay for balloting, to deliver the ballot  boxes and ballots, at tbe various polling places? throughout- the two eon-;  Ptituencies. Tbe bubble was nicely  pricked however, by Mr. Alcorn. M.P.,  ivlio upon the. motion to read the  amended election act a second time,  (August 2nd) moved the following  resolution :  " In the electoral districts of Comos-  Atlin, Kootenay and Yale-Cariboo in  the Province of British Columbia, the  flay for tbe nomination of candidates  so to lie fixed fry tbe Governor-General,  and  named   in   the writ of election,  S-HAIX  NOT BE   L?ESS   THAN FOUKTEE**.*  clear days next before the day also  so fixed and named for holding tbe  polls, and the day for holding the  ]>olls shall be'the same throughout  Canada."  During tbe debate  upon the' introduction of the bill, Mr. Galliher, M.P.,  as   we  have   pointed out in another  article, drew a terrible picture of the  dangers  and   tribulations   attendant  __npon   a trip through  the interior of  Kootenay.     His   special   stuclieinnuf  evidently been "on angles." The member   for Yale-Cariboo, and   candidate  for Kootenay. asserted  that a returning   officer   would   be   obliged,   after  travelling 10) miles to deliver a ballot  l-ox, although within   twenty   miles  from the   next   point, be forced to go  back 100 miles to reach his destination!  The   member   for   Yale-Cariboo   and  candidate  for Koolenay, went pretty  far when he declared tbat "personally"  be   would   prefer  that voting should  take place in Kootenay simultaneously  ���������with the vote  throughout the Dominion !     High statesmanship   tbat; but  tvh.it do the electors think of the man  ivho blows  hot and cold according to  the  demands of the occasion ?   'What  ���������will they think of the representative,  ���������who, after  making   such a statement  opposed Mr. Alcorn's motion, which if  carried, would have enabled Mr. Galliher   to enjoy all  the advantages bt;  declared   would   accrue   to  bim,   by  l-eason of no exception being made as  to the   day of  balloting 'i   The representative of   Yale-Cariboo, (known in  tbe House of Commons as "The Absent Member") has given a few voles,  however.     He voted against protecting   the  public   exchequer; be voted  against giving the auditor general sufficient   authority   to   guard   that exchequer; he approved of a government  composed of men, who, when in opposition, denounced their opponents for  fin annual expenditure of $32,000,000,  but wc do not believe tbe practical  men of Kootenay are' prepared to  approve'-or Mr." Galliber's political  record. He evidently has his doubts,  otherwise, ���������lie. would have supported  Mr. Alcorn's proposition to remove  any difficulties, by having the Koote  nay nomination one "'month earlier  than in other constituencies. XVe  have the action of the Government,  endorsed as it was by Mr. Galliher.  "playing with loaded dice." Wc have  given our reasons for this, and it  must not be forgotten, that the conspirator's, bent upon bullying tbo  electors of Kootenay and Yale-Cariboo  know that should tbe Government be  sustained, they would have the advantage of the personal presence of  Ministers, as well as the help of those  who yearn to receive Government  favours. XVe are far from believing  that this chicanery will advance Mr.  Galliber's interests; it will more probably prove a boomerang: still, that  does not in the least minimise tbe outrage upon the electors of Kootenay,  an outrage for which Mr. Galliher  mi'..st^b(^heUUrespon3ible,ii^=si_==i_^i=  awaiting development, to be one of  tbe richest in the world���������and yet the  servants of the people holding office  at Ottawa, positively refuse to assist,  imagining that people who are struggling to accomplish something for  British Columbia will be satisfied with  the crumbs pitched at them in the  shape of dredging a. river, building a  drill shed or erecting a post office.  There should bo no uncertain sound,  on the part of the electors of British  Columbia. Bartizan passion should  dissappenr before l.ho serious issues  now involved. Of course, the absence'  of Mr. Galliher from parliament one*  third of every. session, as well as  absenting himself '.from.two-thirds of  the divisions in parliament; is not  creditable: still, he would have done  woll to stay away oil more occasions,  judging from the votes he recorded in  favour of the administration.

Scores   of party   nominations     were  mnde,   political   literature circulated,  and   the   machinery   generally   oiled  and prepared for action.    Of a sudden,  the wheels were reversed and another  session of   parliament'called.    It was  then found that tbe promoters of   the.

"I disapprove of letters oT lntrodttc-  Itlon," said an elderly New Orleans business man, "and won't give oue under  Buy circumstances. They are bad form  and border close on downright impcrtl-  meneo. What right have I, for example, to thrust a perfect stranger on  [toy friend, John Smith, of Memphis or  .Chattanooga, without having at least  tasked Mr. Smith's permission or ascertained whether tho Introduction vould  be mutually agreeable V Then, again,  l������ucb. letters always mean cither too little or too much. My.t of us give thsin  jnlmcst as freely as wo give good ad-  [vice, without tho least idea of incur-  jTlng any responsibility; yet a lotter ei  [introduction is, or ought io be, an ab-  'eoluto Indorsement of the bearer, and  .tho recipient would bo justified In holil-  tag tho writer strictly accountable for  any abuse of his hospitality. 1 bellcvo  [this view is unassailable, but I must  confess I stopped writing letters of ia-  itroducion myself oa account of a little  contretemps that has nothing to do  with the proprieties of the Question. -It  .happened In this way:  ** "A certain friend aslied me to give a  ,/etter to a young Englishman, intro  <duclng him to a former business part-  ������er of mine, now living in Louisville. I  idn't want to do it, but lacked moral  (courage to refuse; so 1 wrote two letters���������one the introduction requested  ���������and the other a brief note to the Louls-  rville man, explaining the circumstances and saying that I didn't really...  know whether the .Englishman, was'a  (gentleman or a horse thief, Two daj'J  Sater I got a telegram from my partner,  nay Ing that he had received a letter o"  introduction by mail and was atalosn  Ito know what to make of it.

"I suppose he read it. of course," re*  (narked eome one iu the group of lis*  (tenera.  "That's just what has been troubling  tne ever since," replied the old merchant; I don't know whether he did or  not. He presented it without turning  ta hair, and i* he knew the contents ho  certainly made no sign. At least that  Is the report of my friend, who was so  surprised when he van his eye over the  epistle that he nearly fell out of his  chair. All this happened four' yoaiu  Bto, and I haven't written a letter of  Introduction since. I wouldn't meet  that Englishman again for a thcusand-  Uollar bill, because if I did I wouldn't  know "whether to shake hands or gel  ���������feadj; to fight.  ���������*" ?? 'Uses of Turpentine.  {Turpentine, either in resinous form  Or in spirits of turpentine, has a lot of  household virtues well known to'women on the frontier or in isolated farm  Rouses, but not so familiar to city  housewives. Few barefoot hoys are ignorant that a cut toe heals quickly if  Borne resinous turpentine is used aa a  salve. But in cities spirits of turpentine can be more easily secured and is  more convenient for application. In  most cases lt will produce the same effect.  Let a child suffering from the croup  or from any throat or lung difiiculty  inhale the vapor; and rub the little suf-  ferer'o chest till the skin Is red, ending  by wrapping about it a flannel moistened with the fiery spirits. Relief will  be almost instantaneous. Afterward  sweet oil will save the skin.  Use spirits of turpentine for burns,  the pain will disappear, and healthy  granulation at once set in! * It can ba  applied effectively on a linen rag.  ,  Spirits of turpentine will take awa7  the soreness of a blister very'quickly,  The skin will go down, and healing will  begin as soon as the remedy is applied,  But outsido of the family medicino  chest spirits of turpentine is a good  thing to have at hand. It ls the best  dressing for patent leather; lt will  clean artists' clothoj and workmen's  garments from paint; it will drive  away moths If a few drops are put into  closets and chests; lt will persuade  mice to find othor quarters far away, if  a little is poured into the mouse-holes;  a tablespoonful added to the water in  (which linens are boiled will make the  goods wonderfully white; a few drop3  Will prevent Btarch from sticking:  mixed with boes>vax it makes the best  floor polish, and mixed with sweet oil  It ls unrivalled for fine furniture. Tho  latter mixture should be two parts of  ���������sweet oil and one ot turpentine.  Some physicians nyfonimend spirits  pt turpentine in external applications  for lumbago and rheumatism. It Is also  prescribed for neuralgia ot the face.

There uns such a concent ruled tenderness nnd compassion in his voice,  that Jessie's overwrought, feelings  reached a climax, nnd she burst into  tent's. She was about to toll him  nil, when thc sound of n heavy iron  step on the wooden footbridge iiuule  her start, while Mr-.

He stood before her with a grave  air, and preached her a nice little  sermon on the sin of discontent, to  which she listened with becoming  meekness, though not without a lit.  tie reproach in her large pathetic  gave. He recommended her some  do-.otional and other reading, and  rh al ked out various duties'for hor,  and bid her come oftener to tho rectory and  take counsel of his sister.  '���������I know," he said in conclusion,  "ihat your position is a very trying  one. hut heaven will reward you as  you bear it patiently. Ho of good  cheer.

"The whim will pass with her;  don't make '.yourself indispensable  there." he repeated, utterly blind to  the real danger. "Go less frequently."  "Vou may be sure, Mr. Ingleby,  that1 shall riot go there more frequently than I can help." she replied,  with 'despairing emphasis as thoy  parted, and she wont home with Her  ���������secret still locked in her breast.

Jliss Ingleby liked lier brother to  tease hor about lier grand flirtation  with Claude Medway, and she did  not hesitate to say that his visits  and the quips and sallies which passed between them, made her feel at  ���������least six year's younger.

Everybody was out, even thc  nurse wanted tlio afternoon; it was  too rainy for Ethel to venturo \oirt  of doors. So in Half an hour's  time Jessie was standing by Ethel's  coucli, a fresh nod hope-inspiring vision, with ruin-drops sparkling upon  her bright, lmir; and her color heightened by tho (lump, soft oir; ready to  do anything to while away tho tedium of the sick girl, for whom sho  had a tenderness. The pnle, pinched  face brightened at the sight of her,  and Kthel raised her' arms and drew  Jessie down to kiss her, the latter  submitting to Uro caress with the  princess air Miss Ingleby had observed.  "Everybody is so cross and disagreeable lliis morningi" she said in  a querulous tone. "1 suppose the rain  spoils their- tempers. l>o you feel  cross, Jessie?"  "Not in the least, dear* Miss Medway," she replied. wilh iv gentle  smile; "it is a treat to come and  seo you."  She soon cliased away the gloom  and peevishness, and in a few minutes had her patient in a wheel-chair  traversing tlio North Gallery, in  which thero were a few good pictures  among ninny family portraits nnd  others of mediocre worth'. To Jessie  it .was the picture gallery, and. a  source of great inspiration, since she  had seen no other1, and il; was a. real  pleasure, as she said, to linger  through it and hear all that Ethel  could tell hcr about the pictures. Indeed Marwell Court, really a lino  building full of artistic ancl interesting things, was the most interesting  placo Jessie had ever seen, though  she Had discovered that refined and  beautiful surroundings do not make  peoplo  perfect.  -At the end of thc long gallery was  a large, deep bay window, rind in  this, at Jessie's suggestion, luncheon  was served on a large oalc table.  Mere, besides the long vista of the  gallery,- tliey liad an extensive view  of tlio park with its beautifully  grouped oaks and beeches, so that  tliey seemed to be in the moist  green world outside, being protected  and . divided from the raiu-.swalhod  park only by tlie window-panes.  It is liko    a picnic in  tho rain  letter? Oh! here it is at last!" and  she picked a largo foreign-looking  packet from tlie floor, where, it had  fallen entangled in tho sweeping sari.  Captain Medway smiled behind his  roses; it was not' thus, ho Had been  led to believe, that lovers' letters  wero usually treated, tossed about  and mislaid.  "Let mo see," she continued, opening it. "Dear Jessie���������I was vory  glad to find your letter���������yes���������Cousin  June���������hum. Abrahnm. I beg your  pardon, Miss Medway.

By  the way, Sire, it was .Wither., too  much" of a good thing to call out  the military, to' cut up the children's  cake for you."  "I didn't. I had set Jessie to cut  it in the school house. Captain Medway happened to bo passing by and  just looked in. When he saw poor  little Jcssio slaving awny at the  slabs of cake with a great carving-  knife, the good-natured follow quietly took tlie knife out of her- hands.  Jessie made no demur, but abdicated  her post with lier little princess air.  I believe that if the Princo of Wales  were to rush headlong to pick up Her  handkerchief, she would accept it as  a natural and proper attention.

The silken Sari glided gradually from  the slim figure as its poise altered-  with Jessie's efforts to catch tho ball  until it. lay at lier fecr and she  paused, flushed arrd radiant, with one  bright braid of hair loose on her  shoulder, to hand the cup to Ethel,  that she might essay her skill.

Why They Would Be Out  of Placo  in. the  Suggested. Role..,  A writer in an English' review expresses the opinion that if, for a  while, men could take over all Housekeeping duties, keeping women entirely out of domestic management, the  ensuing revolution would solve thu  servant problem. B.v planning everything on business lines about .10 pet-  cent, of the present labor would be  saved. It is asserted that all the  labor-saving devices in use at present  aro llio inventions of men, ancf that  there are plenty more of these beneficent ideas on tap in the masculine  brain only awaiting an opportunity  for realization. Men do not Havo  the same troubles with' their employes  tliat women do with their servants,  says the writer, and it would not  take the mighty masculine intellect  very long to uo away with the servant  question  entirely.  Wo are inclined to agree witli tlio  writer to this extent: that after a  man had conducted tlie domestic affairs of a household for a few weeks  there would be no servant question,  and no servant eitiier, writes Robert Webster Jones in the Juno Housekeeper. It would bo a task of'Hercu^  lean 'difiiculty to persuade a servant  to enter that House again. Wo can  picture in our mind's eye tlie domestic  chaos tliat would result, the astonishing innovations that would be introduced from cellar to garret. Fancy  the average man attempting to discipline the cook by employing the  same methods with wliich ho is accustomed to coerce tlie office boy. Imagine this man debating tlie vital  questions of "Thursday afternoons  out" and "What shall wo Have for  d.'nnei".'" with an indignant Abigail  whose eloquence exceeds Her logic!-  As for us, we do not want a home  ran ori "strictly business principles.".  There are plenty oi" them in the land,  but they aro called Hotels. Here is a  conundrum: Wlien is a Home not a  home? When it has a man for Housekeeper. Home is tliat realm where  woman rules.

It is contributed to by the Czar, by every  noble, every oflicer, and soldier, and  by every individual, no matter of  what class, from prince to moujik.  On tlio great feast days a great clotlj  is spread near tlie altar in church',  and tliere rich and poor heap up gold,  silver, paper money, jewels, copper  kopocks, pearls, ikons studded withi  gems, all tlieir most cherished trea-  surcs, until tlio cloth is completely  hidden.

Nobody nsked them whnt they  wished themselves���������Hussars, Life  Giinrhs, Infantry or Fleet. And, to  tell lhe truth, the two Ivans were  absolutely indifferent. They must  serve somewhere.  So, when the conscription oflrcciv  chalk in hand, walked past the long  line of men, writing a military, or  naval mark on the men's sheepskin  coats, neither Ivan had a single  thought in his head. At most thero  was a faint imago of their native  villages, bat even thnt receded and  seemed to melt inlo the mist.  "That fellow has a sailor snout,"  snid someone's voice. Then one  Ivan felt the chalk passing ovcr his  chest.  "The navy !"

All tho world looked at thcm, but  they could not even seo the sky;  they sat concealed and obscure in a  steel box under water.  The council was short and their decision soon taken.  "Wo must die."

Monsters      That     Struggle    With  Half a Dozen  Sailors  at  a Time.  Owing to the' exceptional rigors of  of the past winter along DnHinlnnd  and Labrador, the polar bears have  had        to      wander oft        among  thc ice floes in greater numbers than  usual in quest of the seals upon  which they chiefly feed, nnd the crews  of the Newfoundland sealing fleet,  just back from their annual hunt,  tell many stories of encounters with  these monsters writes a St. John's,  Newfoundland,  correspondent.  AV'heri he is well fed the polar bear  is easily worsted, but if Hungry he  lights with fury. Hence, encounters  with bears aro not sought, unless  riflemen are included in the party;  but sometimes there is no alternative  This season, on one occasion, seven  men armed only with seal clubs Had  to jight an old male bear.  One man thought he saw a seal behind a hummock and r.tnrted off after it, a second following Him. Just  as tho first topped the hummock he  raised His club and struck, when to  his horror he found He had hit. a polar bear over the snout. The bear  turned on him witli an angry growl  and would have dismembered Him  witli a single stroke, wlien the second  man got in and hit him on the snout  also. This blow half stunned Him  and lie fell r backward into a small  hole of walei'.  Still, though dazed, he struggled to  ge.t. out, and so therc_ was -nothing  for it bul to light him, and this'the  men did successfully, the whole seven  joining in the struggle. Yet he  broke one man's ankle, lacerated another's thigh and splintered the arm  of a third beforo ho gavo in. His  skin and fat weighed-4.00 pounds nnd  his carcass probably, as much more,  co that he was as  BULKY AS A SMALL HORSE.  ' On another occasion there was a  fierce- light, within full view of a  ship's crew, between a bear and six  men. Bruin had been asleep for the  night on a small pan of ice and was  awakened in the early morning by  the sound of the steamer's whistle,  blown to call her crow to their day's  toil. Tho bear, aroused from slumber, raised himself on his hind' paws  with a mighty growl, as,if in challenge lo thc ship. His defiance was  accepted in this sense by six young  sealmcn, who promptly made at him  witli only tlieir clubs.  The boar was unable to leave the  small pan he was on, owing to six  enemies assailing him, and so had  to fight it out there. . lie made a  game defence, too, notwithstanding  all attacks of his adversaries. One  of these struck-at him -with a club',  but lie. reared up. caught it in his  mouth and jerked it from the owner's  hands nnd, shaking it.-ns a terrier  would a rat. Hurriedly banned at thc  owner witli it and felled him senseless with' a blow over thc head. The  other assailants ho kept oft also in  the same way, and it was not till  a man came from the ship with a  rifle rind put four bullets through  Him that he showed nny'weakening.  At Inst he became dazed; and a well  directed blow on the snout stunned  hiin, while a shower more npparently  killcel him.  A ropo was lashed touii'd his body  nnd he wns swung up by the ship's  winch lo be got on board, but just  as���������lie-came���������over-tho-rnil-the-rope  broke anel he disappeared from view  in the water. The cold bath revived  him, for in about five minutes he  wns seen to emerge In a blow hole in  n floe, and climbed on to a high  pun. Three men were nt onco despatched nfter him, and hc was stunned, stabbed to the heart nnd then  drugged to the ship to .be skinned.  1U> wus nearly nine feet long and  twelve feet irr largest girth,.and was  altogether  A FORMIDABLE ADVERSARY.  Men who go to the seal fisheries  for the sport or experience as passengers on tlie ships of thc fleet,  usually derive their keenest enjoyment from stalking the polar bears,  ns it is quite a novel form of big  game hunting. The scene is tho  great floating ice field, and from  hummock to hummock, and berg . to  berg, the hunter will dodge.his prey  until a lucky shot will enable him to  bring down  the victim.  Sealing captains will never let  tlieir guests go off unattended on  sucli a mission, but send a couple of  expert riflemen with them, as at  limes Mr-, and Mrs. Bear nnd their  offspring may be at home on the  floe, arrd thoy would bo rather too  formidable a combination for the inexperienced hunter.  The Esquimaux of Greenland nnd  Baffin Laud nro notable bear hunters.  Tho Esquimaux have trained their  dogs to run the creatures down nnd  torment them until they can come  up themsolvcs and give ihe quietus  With lanco or gun. The daring cf  the Fisquimaux hunters is groat, and  they will attack the Infuriated b������cr  tlie moment tliey come within striking range.  In northern Labrador  tliey are ul-:  so    to be.    got    in goodly numbers.  Last season    a Newfoundland fishing  skipper found two of them entangled  ln His nets"in O'Brien harbor at the  entrance to Ungava Bay, and was  able to kill them with but little  trouble. Another skipper sighted a  third and sont two men in a boat after him, but their first shot only,  wounded the brute and ho made back  at them, upset and tore apart their  boat, and badly gashed ono of tho  men before the schooner ran down  and poured a whole battery of bullets into Him.  The Hudson Bay Compans-'s factors are always keen to secure skins  of this white water bear. Last year  ono station secured fourteen of these  skins, tho largest of which measured  thirteen feet nnd brought ������15 ut tho  company's mutual auction in London. Another station, JVnkvnk, the  most northern and therefore Host situated for them,  collects  ABOUT  SIXTY A  YEAR.  About    400     hears    arc  killed  along  Labrador every twelvemonth.  Theso bears nre extraordinarily  cunning. They catch seals .in exactly tlio same way as the Estjuimaux,  by waiting nt a blowhole, having  first built up n little wall around  it. They show cleverness almost  human in grasping a seal when it  comes up to breathe, and transferring it to thc ice.  If tho bear is not Hungry He will  piny with the seal just as a cat  docs with a mouse, putting it till it  wriggles nway, catching it again,  tossing it into the a'ir anel torturing  it in various wuys, but always  keeping between it and the blowhole, and eventually killing it by.  jumping on  it  with all four paws.  Tho boars alpo will wait, nose  down,' against tho floo by which  seals, narwhals and even whito  whales swim, and when ono of these  will rise lo breathe, spring upon it  liko a cat on a sparrow, hugging and  tearing it to death in the water,  ancl oventunliy dragging it up on the  ice, to bo devoured at leisure. When  no better food oilers, thoy subsist  on some of the innumerable diving  birds that abound in northern seas.  The bear will immerse himself in the  water where Uro birds are swimming,  and then, sinking beneath it, will  leave only the black nose visible, up  to which tho unwitting bird swims,  only to find itself a victim to his  maw.  It is while abroad on the ice that  the bears are carried off by. adverse  winds and swept south to perish of  starvation. During last Christmas  week tho steamship Hanover, crossing tlie Grand Banks on the way to  Baltimore, sighted an iceberg on  which wero moving objects flrst  Ihought to bc human beings, but  subsequently seen to be six polar  bears. They Had been ferried hundreds of miles from their Arctic home  nnd were doomed 'to perish by  drowning or hunger. Similar scenes  are often witnessed by the crews of  vessels fishing on the Grand Banks.  Last .July two castaway fishermen  from one of the ships on the Banks  pulled toward an iceberg to get some  fragments to molt into drinking water,1 but found it tenanted by a  starving polar bear," which plunged  into the sea and made after tliem  on catching sight of them. Thoy  had to row their best to escape, as  theso bears -can swim as well as  seals, and it was only when he saw  he could not reach them that, he returned to his lonely eyrie, bellowing  forth hoarse growls of rage thc  while.-  A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE  WOMAN  IMPRISONED  DEATH ADDERS.  WITH  Hunting      for     Orchids      in     the  "   Wild Hills  of North  Queensland.  On the bank of tlie Kirk River, in  North Queensland, there is a wild  picturesque runge of rocky hills,  whose tops arc 300 feet high. They  consist of immcuse boulders, tumbled  together in the wildest confusion,  with timber, vines, creepers nnd huge  orchids and ferns growing in between .  I had visited this place three limes  for tho purpose of gathering orchids  for a person in Townsville who  used to puy me five shillings each  for them.  One day I set out for a spot where  T  was  sure  plenty  of  orchids  would  be  _found���������a narrow,   wild-looking,  "wedge^slrapcel-cleft-or-gorge- in the  mountains which was dosely covered  on each side with jungle. Hugo  grev boulders showed out Hero and  there through the verdure, and orchitis could bc seen less than one  hundred feet above me. Hobbling  out mv horse, and taking my wator  bag, I started. It took me quite  an hour to get to tho top of the  gully, for I had to clamber over  boulders, push through' vines and  creepers and make ninny detours.  However, when I reached there, I  was well satisfied, for tliere were  many orchids around mc���������some-growing on trees and others?in the clefts  and crannies of the boulders^ From  the summit there w-as    : ?  A   SPLENDID   VIEW  of thc surrounding country���������the long  meandering course of the Kirk River  being especially noticeable, owing to  both banks being Heavily fringed  with dark green she-oaks, which  made a startling contrast to the  monotony of the pale dull green of  the forest of iron bark and gum  trees. Almost directly, beneath me,  at the base of thVh'ills, there was a.  flock of seven emus, who wero feeding  on a thick, fleshy kind of saline  creeper,'Which grew iimbnst tho loose  stones. I could sec them quite distinctly as they stalked to and fro.  Little did 1 know as I watched them,  that these Huge birds were to be the  indirect means of my being rescued  from a dreadful  situation.      ??;  Leaving my water-bag under the  shade of an overhanging boulder, I  began to collect. I had been at  work about half an Hour when I  caught sight of a beautiful orchid  just coming into flower. It was  growing iu tlie cloft of a jagged  boulder standing amidst a tangled  network of tough, malodorous vino.  I was so eager to get possession of  it that, when I found tliere was a  narrow cleft between the boulder  and mo I did not hesitate to jump  across���������with a disastrous result, for  when I landed on the other sido toy  foot slipped on the rock_apd I tell  sideways down into the cleft fluid  dropped into a thick pilo of du'sris  of dead vines and leaves, whicli had  fallen from tlio.trees above.  Rising to my feet, I lookctl ab������ut  mo, and nearly criod with fright, for  I saw that I was in a prison chamber! From where I had fallen to tho  bottom was about ten or twelvo  feet, although the floor of the place  was three feet thick witli potcelery  leaves, etc. But what terrified me  wns that tlio woll of solid rock, was  dome-shaped, and would bc iin-pijssi-  blo for nnyono to climb. Tli������������ cleft  nt tlio top���������through which I could  see tlio blue sky nbove���������was tLliout  three feet wide and about ten long;  at ono end of it the roots of a tree  called the  "MORKTON BAY FIG'!-  hung down over the edge.  I sat down and looked all mound  my prison nnd saw that it wa.s fu-  tiio my attempting to escape unaided���������1 should have to wait until 1  was rescued. Then 1 began to feel a  little more courageous. My mother,  T knew, if I did not return by sunset, would bo sure to send someone  to look for me. That I should be  found by night, or at least on the  following morning, I was certain.  I stood up and scraped together a  pilo. of leaves, making them into a  sort of bank against tho side of the  cavern, so that I could either sit  or lie down in some comfort.  Then I caught sight of something a  few yards away on tho other sido of  the cave that made my Heart "come  into my mouth"���������a number of snakes  lying together in a heap, and apparently asleep.  I kept perfectly still for a few moments, and watched them intently,  wondering whether they were young,  non-venomous "rock" carpet snakes  (which wero very plentiful all about  the Kirk) or the " deadly brown  snake.  Vcry softly and quietly 1 wont a  little nearer, and looked more closely, and felt sick with fear when I  saw that they were elcath adders���������  dark grey in color, and all, except  one, appeared to bo of tho same  size, about 18 inches long; evidently  they wero the one-brood. Presently  one of them moved, and then writhed itself clear from its horrid companions, and slowly crawled away to  tho Soot of the wall, whero it suddenly disappeared, and then I saw what  had previously escaped my notice���������  that there wero means of exit (for  snakes at least)���������narrow cracks and  fissures in the rock, some of them as  large as a man's hand. At that side  ���������where the adders *werc lying���������the  floor of thc pit was free from debris (heing away from tho opening  above-), and consisted of a dirty  dark greyish- sand; and a wild hopo  come to mo that I might be able  to dig my way through under the  wall.  -- Creeping over as quickly as possible and keeping a watchful eyo on  the hideous mass of slumbering reptiles, I began to dig with my hands  at the base of the wall, and worked  on for ten minutes or so, the perspiration streaming from every pore  in my body, and then gave up when  my nails struck against solid rock.  Kneeling down  I PRAYED FOR COURAGE,  for the coming night, ond then I  "did a long weep." Turning over  my seat of leaves, in the hopo that  I might find some large stones underneath which would enable mo to kill  any of tho adders if one came over  to my part of the cave I found some  small pieces of granite. These I  put in my handkerchief and tied  them up tightly, making a weapon as  good as a stone, and weighing about  five pounds.  Then I suddenly .remembered my  box of "matches, and I became almost  Hysterical with joy. 1 found a certain means of defence, and should  not die a dreadful death from snake-  bile in that awful place! After another "weep"���������this time one of joy���������  and_ when my hands ceased to tremble "with excitement, 1 began my preparations.  As -long,- ns daylight lasted I  should, I knew, be comparatively  safe from thc adders, unless 1" disturbed them; but at night thoy  would bo all ovcr thc placo seeking  food,_such-ns Jittle-grey-rock-lizards,-  maiiy of which I saw creeping about  the sides of the cavern in pursuit of  flies, moths,, etc. Very carefully I  gathered up armsful of leaves ifnd  (lend vines, and pushed them inch  by inch towards the sleeping adders  feeling more courageous every moment, when I saw that no notice was  takon of my movements, In half  an hour I hnd a thick somi-circular  layer of leaves nearly two feet high  between the snakes and me. Then 1  added more and more leaves, until  I had formed a complete circle, with  a clear space in thc centre, inlo  which. 1 then carried all the leaves  that were left and compressed them  ns mucli''."as possiblo by covering  tliem with iny. shirt, which I took  off. It was my intention to sit on  this mound of leaves till darkness  came on; then first set fire t.o tho  surrounding girdle of leaves and add  to them ; from my heap, littlo by  little.  AS  THEY BURNED DOWN*  I was sure there were enough leaves  to keep the fire belt alivo until daylight, but at the sumo timo I was  almost certain that help would come  to mc long before then.  Suddenly I heard a sound which  made my heart loup���������a gun shot !  Then another and another followed.  I sprang to my feet, and in a few  moments I had lit thc circle ot leaves  in a dozen places, cooee-ing loudly  tlie while.  'A dense volume of smoke arose  round me, and poured up .through  the top of the cave. I was so surrounded by it that I was not only  lialf-smootlferocl, but nearly roasted  ns well, for the leaves of the More-  ton Bay fig tree give out a great  heat. Tn anothor quarter of an  Hour, when I was gasping for breath*,  and the flames and smoke had died  away, I was ablo to M*.  !fta������������ftftttft*_fer_Mt*fr*e$fta.*������<  the  CHOICE  RECIPES.

Bake tho same as  spongo cake.  Maitre d'llotel Potatoes���������Wash,  pare and shape potatoes into balls,  using a French vegetable cutler, or  shape in one-half inch curbs. There  should be potatoes to make two cups  full. Soak in cold water for fifteen  minutes, then drain and boil in salted water till soft. Drain and add  maitre d'hotol'butter and mix well-  Dandelion Wine���������Gather two quarts  of blossoms, without steins, which  wil] make tho wine better. Pour one  gallon of boiling .water over blossoms, let stand in stone crock threo  days and nights (or granite kettle  is better). Strain and add . three  pounds white sugar, two sliced lemons and two oranges. . Boil aboirt  five minutes. When lukewarm add  ono tablespoonful good yeast.* Pour  into a jug- to ferment, having ,tho  jug full,'so it can run out as it ferments, fillrng up the jug witli the remainder (if any is left over, if not,  use sugar and water, as the jug must  be kept full during fermentation).

Removal of soot marks���������When soot  falls upon the carpet or rug, never  attempt to sweep it up at once, for  tho result is Mire to bo a disfiguring  mark; Co\ er���������it -thickly- wit h-nicely-  dried salt, which will enable you to  sweep it up cleanly, so that not lire  slightest stain  or smear will be left.  Cnrputs should bu beaten on the  wrong side first, und afterward more  gently on the right. Never put  down a car-pet on n dump floor, for  this���������often the result of hurry and  impatience on the part of weary  house-cleaners���������i.s a frequent cause of  carpets becoming moth-eaten.  Windows in damp weather���������When it  is necessary to clean windows in  damp weather, uso a little inolhylat-  e'd spirit, and you will polish tho  windows In half the time, as the  spirit evaporates, and dries the superfluous moisture us it goes.  To clean enameled baths���������Stains  may be taken off an enameled bath if  it is rubbed well with rough salt  moistened witli vinegar. This will  also clean enameled pots and pans,  no matter How binned or discolored  they may  be.  To preserve stair carpets put pads  of old blankets on each step. If  tliere is no store of ancient blanket  to draw from., a substitute may be  made of several thicknesses of brown  paper.  When makino, a pudding don't for-  gol to in.iko n plr.it in lire cloth nt  the top of your 1hi.mii, so ns to allow   tlle  pudding  room   to   swell.  To boil egus for nrwilids. bring the  water to lhe boil, then tnko the  egg in it for live minutes. This will  cook the egg peifectly without making the white hard nnd iii(lig<-*-liblo.  It is also well to boll an egg intended for a young chrld In this manner.  'I'o clean brass nothing is better  than the old-fashioned plan of rubbing first wilh a paste made of powdered bathbrick and paralliiie, and  then wilh powdered bathbrick. A  mixture of lemon juice arrd powdered  chalk used in -the same wny is also  excellent.  Never hang a mirror where the  sun's rays will fall upon it. The sun  acts upon the mercury and clouds  the glass.  ON TOAST.  For nn inexpensive "tasty" hot  dish, for tea there aro morc ways of  using up the left-overs from dinner  by serving them on toast; which,  with a little caro, mny be made to  look as tasteful to the eyo as lo the  palate.  Trim the crust from neat slices of  stale bread, and toast each side a  delicate brown; butter while hot, and  keep covered unlil tho slices are softened. Then lay on each a portion  nf the preparation, leaving a  cdrjo of the toast visible.  Fish���������Separate the meal from the  bones of any fish that may be left  from dinner, and place on one side.  Break into a bowl one or two eggs,  according to the amount of fish, add  salt, a bit of pepper, .and orre teaspoonful of plain flour; mix thoroughly. If you think there is not  sufficient lish for your slices of toast,  add one slice of fresh, white bread,  minus crust, mix all well, and add  the flsh. Pour into a frying pan in  which is a little hot butter or Ham  gravy, stir until very hot, spread  on toast and serve. A few drops  of lemon .juice sprinkled on thc mixture improves  it for somo tastes.  Chipped Boef���������Put into a saucepan  one gill of milk, and a teaspoonful  of butter. When the butter melts  add as much as desired of chipped  beef shredded into tiny bits. Add to  this one beaten egg, a sprinkling of  blnck pepper. Stir with a fork  about two minutes, spread on toast,  and serve.  Tomato���������To about a cupful of cold  slewed tomato, add the same quantity "of chopped ham, one beaten egg,  antl a little warm water or gravy.  Bring to a strong heat, and lay on  toast.    Sorvo very hot.  MOST REMARKABLE CASE  A  MAN WHO   SEES  SOUNDS  VARIED COLORS.  IN  Crossed    Nerves    in Brain Enable  Him to  Interchange  Three  Senses.  There is a young man of twenty-  six at Zurich, Switzerland,' with'  such a wonderful brnia that tho  neurologists and psychologists of  Paris are visiting Switzerland to see  with tlieir own eyes the marvelous  performances related of him by the  rroted alienist, Dr. Alfred Ulrich,  who discovered him three years ago  and who has ju������t published in a  Paris specialisis' journal a full account   of   the   icinnrknble  case.  Tiie young man is a native Swiss  of poor family, and that is How ho  fell under the ob.scn ation of Dr. Ulrich, who i.s the head of the nervous  hosjiital at Zurich. Tho patient  came lo the hospital for treatment  of a slight spasmodic affect ion, but  Dr. Ulrich soon discoid cd hc had  happened on one of the most curious  and amazing cases in thc annals of  science. It is diflleult to make out  lire causes of the strange things this  young man can do, for an exactly  similar case was never known, although the patient's brother, a  younger man, presents many of the  same phenomena.  MATHEMATI CAL  PRODIG Y.  Until the boy wns 13 years old it  was beliovcd he would make a second Newton or Gauss in mathematics. His ability to solve the most  difficult problems in arithmetic was  such as to amaze his teachers. At  ."> years of age he could quickly perform the solution of the hardest kind  of the simpler arithmetical problems;  and later he developed still more  wonderful facility as a mathematician. At 13, however, He fell ill  with measles, and upon his recovery,  tiny, he lost his color, his general health,  and his brilliancy of mind, but new  powers came to him which wero  quite unobserved, at least in their  scientific importance, until he fell under the eye of the Swi?s alienist.  It was then learned that ever sinco  his boyhood thc young man could see  color in thc sound of the human  voice. After his attack of _ the  measles all kinds of sounds were  translated into color after reaching  his brain. He could Hear no definito  sound without at the same timo  sensing a definite color or combination of definite colors.  Dr. Ulrich discovered other strango  things in the sensations of his pa-  lientT. and for three years he Has  been making continous tests and experiments, the results of wliich" He  lias now given to the scientific world.  The adders had  gone.  I Lhcii made another pile of leaves  directly, urrder the opening above, lit  it and watched lho smoke ascending  in a straight lino to thn sky, and  every now nnd then cooeed with all  the strength of my lungs.  Hours and hours seemed to pass,  though it was in reality less than  half an hour after the first fire was  lit that thc smoke was noticed, and  my cries heard by a man named  Maurice Kerr and a black boy. Thc  ���������former was a stockman, and was  riding across country to the Kirk  Rivor Township when he saw the  flock of emus, and had shot three of  thcm with his .Winchester carbine,  when tlie black boy first called his  attention to my horse and then to  tho smoko. As they wore pulling  the big feathers out of 'one of the  emus thoy heard my cooee.  It did not tako them long to find  me, and 1 was soon rescued by  means of two bridles, which Kerr  lashed together and lowered 'down to  me, telling me liow to tie one under  my arms. Then they pulled me up.  And then as I lay on th'o hot rooks  I pointed to my water-bag.  Oh! that drink of w������t������r. It wafl  heaven itself!  CUTS AND BRUISES.      ,  Just ns soon as the warm weather  comes the children want to go barefooted and then begins trouble with  sore toes- arid bruises. They get all  kinds of wounds, but the most serious arc those made by rusty iron,  generally received by stepping on an  old nail, tlie barbs of wire fences,  etc. Such hurls often prove serious, resulting sometimes ia lockjaw  and that is a disease that the doctors do not seem able to handle successfully.  Children should be instructed not  to think such hurts of'no consequence  This is not "babying" thcm, either,  for they should be instructed why  care, is desirable. Teach them to  come to" you with every hurt in  which" the skin is broken, then see  that the wound is properly cleansed  and bound up with some henling liniment, so that no foreign matter  either  remains  or can enter.  In the case of a wound from a  rusly nail���������the most dangerous of injuries to the barefoot boy���������turpentine is lii___.li!_> reromiiicrided.

Bruises and bumps will not turn  blue if butter or lard is imiiiediritoly  upplied.  Illtes from venomous snakes nre  generally counteracted by giving  whisky, on the homeopathic principle  of .siniilia .simiiibus curarrtur, probably. If tho remedy it. not at hand,  make a lye of wood ashes and immerse 'the bit ten member. The lye  should be hot as can be borne, and  changed ns it cools. Continued  soaking is necessary. Several cuses  nro on record where Hies have been  saved by this treatment.  CAKE OF  UMBUELLAS.  Wet umbrellas should be stood on  their handles to dry. 'Phis allows  the water to run out of them instead  of into the part where the ribs and  the silk meet, thus causing the metal  to rust and the silk to rot.  "Arrd you asked her father for her  hand?" "Ves." "Was he violent?"'  "Very. He said I must be an idiot  to think of such a thing." "What  did you reply?" "I told him that,  of course, he knew his own family  better than I did, but that I was  willing to  take my chance,"  He���������"If you don't intend to break  your engagement witli me, why do  you allow young Richmann to make  you sucli valuable presents?"

Alter a boy discovers he doesn't  knov sum uu his father, it is the  ���������a**y tinn ta btgina to knew mora.  SOUND  OF THE  VOWELS.  Tho most intense colors the young  majvean see are produced before' his  eyes when lie hears the sound of tho  vowels. When the letter "a" is  sounded he perceives a brilliant  green, but at thc same time he has  a sensation as of feeling something  cold and smooth, such as glass. Tho  sound of the letter "e" produces several varying colors before his eyes,  but particularly yellow or shades of  yellow. Thc letter "i" gives him a-  sensation of dark color, "o" is ro- .  prerented by a bright red, "u" is a  dark green, and "y" is white.  When he looks at these letiers in  print .he sees colors corresponding  with those he sees when the letters  aro sounded, but much less vividly.  Theso results were obtained by experiments chiefly, made with the human voice.  But the young Swiss perceives different colors in the cries of different  animals. The cry of a dog produces  for him a sensation of yellow; when  he hears the cry of a black-bird he  perceives a red color; thc raven's  voico flashed a color of green beforo  his eyes; the low of a cow is followed' by the perception of intligo,  while the bleat of a sheep gives him  an impression of yellow.  SENSES   INTERCHANGEABLE.  Remarkable as all this may be. tho  young Swiss seems lo have in his  brain some strange faculty by  which almost all the senses fcem to  be convertible one into another, and  this faculty rendered the best and  most conclusively positive results in  the experiments, for it left him entire! v��������� in ihe bunds of the experiment-   t'cr. '  In his brain the senses of form,  color, and -sound nre interchangeable.  In other words, he can feel the qunl-  ilv of roundness in n sound, of  Fqurtieni-ss or roundness iu a color,  of color in roundness or squareness,  lie not only sees a sound and hears  a color, but In* sees nnd hears lho  Minpc or form of things. For example, for him a circle produces a  sensation of red, and when he smells  Iodoform he can see a bright red  color and perceive, nt the snme time,  n sour or bitter sour taste. When  he touches a cold object l,e can seo  n green color, and hc sees a red color when he touches a  hot object.  SENSES FORMS OF TOUCH.  ���������  Dr. Ulrich brings all these interesting facts forward as proof  that    all  tho  live senses  are  really  but differ-  '  mil forms of one and  the snme sense  ���������that is,  touch. The entire busi7  ness, it is claimed, is done in tho  brain where the different centres controlling the sensations act like a  switchboard upon which no coordinated method is at work. So that  the .sense of rouiulnc.<-s, when a  round object is seen or felt, is carried to thc brain and there, by misplaced switches of the gray matter,  is converted into color, sound, or  even smell and taste.
