C���������  A Successful Day.v  Queen's weather marked the opening  of the morning of the Glorious Twelfth  and continued throughout the day to  the joy and comfort of the Orangemen and their friends at the celebration at Vernon on Tuesday.  Fully 250 of Revelstoke Orangemen  and   friends   went   to  Vernon on the  C. P. R. excursion train which left the  depot at 6 o'clock  in the morning and  were accompanied by the Independent  Band.     The   local "C.   P. B. officials  took a deep interest in  the matter of  providing a comfortable train for the  excursionists  and   that  fact    added  greatly to the convenience of the large  number   who  took   in the excursion.  All day Monday the officials and employees at the shops were perpariug  for the   event.     Engine No. 409 was  detailed for the trip with Fred Crick  at the throttle,  .assisted  by Fireman  Rogers.     The engine was gaily decorated  hy   the   boys   with    flags  and  orange,   purple   and   blue    bunting,  while   over   the pilot  an    arch .was  draped'with the Orange colors and in  the centre of the arch hung a picture  of King William.   The start from the  depot was   made  sharp at C a.m.  the  train being in charge of Con. Hyland.  Vernon   was  reached    at   about  10  o'clock, where   1000   people   were the  guests of Vernon Orange Lodge.   During the day a big parade of-Orangemen took place in which five interior  lodges were represented,  assisted by  three brass brands.     After* the parade  a number, of gentlemen delivered'short  addresses and the afternoon was given  over.to sports of all kinds,  -The Ver-  lnnguage, expressed as happy to note  the flourishing condition of the order.  Like bin friend, Mayor McGuigan, he  was of a dilferent faith, but, also like  his friend, he was himself a lover of  religious liberty and so in complete  sympathy with the Orangeman.'  Richer than Gold  Ashobopt, July 12.���������Johnson &  Fry, gold miners" arid prospectors,  have discovered* a rich deposit of  scheelite'in the Willow Creek region  of Ctu'ilxio, The provincial mineralogist says it is more valuable than  gold and makes fourteen cent steel  worth sixty-tour cents. Hitherto the  only place in the world that scheelite  has been found is Northern Australia.  Johnson & Fry say they have an  immense deposit of the stuff, which  they will work at once. It is the  mineral from, which tungstic acid, is  manufactured. The original discoverer was K. W. Scheele, the Swedish  chemist.

B. HUME iii (0, Limited  Department Store.  Xhe Twelfth at Vancouver.  The Vancouver World gave a good  account in its,issue of Tuesday of tbe  Orange celebration in Vancouver and  the ceremony of laying the corner  stone for the new County Orange Hall  on Hastings street. The following are  a short synopsis of tbe addresses given  by Rev. Dr." Reid. Col. Dudley, U. S.  Consul, Mayor McGuigari of Vancouver  and Mayor Keary of New Westminster:  P. G. M. Duke first* called on Dr.  Re>d and he responded with a stirring  speech on the association's work, say-  in'g that brotherly love and kir.dness  were the keynote of Orange teaching.  The reverend doctor wound up his  speech with a splendid peroration.  We want the people to know," he  cried, "thnt we enjoy, we want those  who come after us to enjoy, that we  "aini~atsecuring"God;s~life~God's*'"love  and God's liberty to be handed "down  to our children's children.  Dr. Reid sat down amid hearty  applause and was followed by Colonel  Dudley, the United States consul, who  made a very happy speech. The colonel remarked that there were 700,000  Orangeman in liis country and he was  proud to be asked to speak on this  occasion. He referred in well chosen  language to the mission of the two  great branches of the Anglo-Saxon  race, the mission to preserve the liberties of the peoples of the earth and  to spread civilization.  Colonel Dudley's speech was well received and the chairman next invited  his worship Mayor McGuigan to come  foaward. The mayor had been standing modestly on a pile of lumber which  was in the background and made a  very good press box, but his name was  received with so hearty a 'cheer that  be stepped to the centre of the stage  at once. His Worship said that he  deeply appreciated the honor accorded  him in the* invitation to address the  gathering. While he had been brought  up in another faith from theirs he appreciated the value of the work of the  Orange Association and was as happy  to note the flourishing condition of the  order. Like his friend. Mayor Keary,  he was glad to be able to say that the  bitterness of a former day had been  purged from the religious organizations of these days and that they were  as one in a desire to forward a noble  Christian spirit.  Mayor McGuigan was followed by  His Worship Mayor Keary of New  Westminster 'who, in clear,  forcible  Is the .Gold Lead on the Famous. Silver^Do'llar, and Two  * Feet of High' ��������� Grade Galena  on Hanging* Wall* -  A cbuple.:of ,weel6>",7igo the Herald  announced that one of the high grade  gold leads on the famous Silver Dollar  had been struck in the end of a'tunnel  which Mi*. J. A. Darragh the manager  was running to cross-cut the surface  cropping at a lower depth. On Saturday last the Herald was informed  by Mr. Darragh that the lead was  crosscut and showed an average width  of eleven and a half feet. On the  hanging ;wall the miners working on  the property, were astonished to find  two feet of solid high grade galena.  In speaking -of the new strike the  Crmborne Miner has the following :  ��������� "Eleven and a half feet is the width  of the splendid free-gold - that was  tapped on the Silver Dollar last week.  Two feet of the lead is solid galena,  which is a good augury for rich values  it being a peculiarity of the leads in  this cam]> that the presence of galena  in any quantity in the quartz denotes  good gold values. Four yeais ago  when,this section first came into prominence for its rich mineral deposits,  assays from the surface of the Silver  Dollar lead gave $25 in gold, 180 ozs.  silver and 40 per cent lead. Mr. Darragh is greatly elated over the future  prospects foi the property, A forco  of men are now drifting on the lead,  and this work will continue for some  time to come. The new cabins aro  about completed and the erection of a  30-foot cribbed ore dump will be commenced in a few days."  The Hkrald again must congratulate Mr. Darragh and the Tin Plate  Workers Gold Mining Co. on the successful outcome of their work this  spring, and there was not a doubt in  the minds of mining men who havo  visited the property from time to time  during the last six years but what the  Silver Dollar would take its place  among the high grade properties in  the province. In speaking of the  recent strike on this property to old  prospectors and miners, there only  answer is "I told you it was there,"  and "I told you so." '  JAPANESE  REPULSED  At Port Arthur With Severe  Losses���������Russian Mines Did  the Deadly Work. ��������� Great  Excitement at St. Petersburg.  St. Petersburg, July 13.���������A despatch from a Russian correspondent  at Mukden dated1 July I2th says:���������  "According to intelligence received  here the Japanese last night attacked  the positions north of Port Arthur  and were repulsed with enormous  losses, not less than thirty thousand,  it is said, being killed and wounded  by our mines."  London, July 13.���������The Morning  Post's Shanghai correspondent says  that the Japanese casualties by land  mines at Port Arthur Sunday night  are reported to have been 28,000, but  none of the many other special war  despatches mentions a Japanese disaster at Port Arthur.  A Frenchman who recently- arrived  here in a junk from Port Arthur  reports that on July 7 the Japanese  captured Fort No. 13.

It was immediately transmitted to the official messenger, and a  few minutes afterward the newsboys  were racing through the streets, elec*  i ,  trifying ihe crowds .with the tidings.  The boys were fairly  mobbed by people eager to buy the extras. ,  HIGH SCHOOL  EXAMINATIONS  L O L Church  Parade.  The annual church parade of thc  officers and members of L. O.

Calder delivered a  most eloquent and instructive sermon  which was listened to with a good deal  of interest by the large congregation  present. The choir under tho .leadership nf Mr. H. Cooke and assisted by  Mrs. Creelman, rendered a beautiful  song service. Mrs. Creelman sang a  solo during the service, which was  highly enjoyed by the congregation.  A synopsis of the address delivered by  Rev. Mr. Calder will appear in our  next issue.

Although  the 'threatening character of the  weather detained many, not a few of  the, members and adherents of the  congregation assembled to do honor  to the occasion. A couple of hours  were spent pleasantly by the company  in music and social intercourse. Before  the gathering dispeised the pastor  made the presentation to Mr. More',  reading the following address, to  which Mr. More feelingly replied.  After refreshments were served the  proceedings were brought to a close  with Auld Lang Syne.

Revelstoke, July 13, 1001.  (Signed)-  Thos. Skixner.  Comaplix Cullings.  (From Our Own Corrcjpondent.)  Born to Mr. and Mrs. W. Hamilton,  on July llth, a daughter.  The Empire Lumber Co. have had  to shut down on account of high  water in the lake, the water being  within 3 feet of the high water mark  of '03. It will take a week, after water  goes down, to put tbe mill in running  order again.  Mr. J. A. McGee visited Comaplix  on Saturday.!  Mrs. C. H. Diamond and son of Cam-  Iwrne, spent last week here with Mrs.  B. Ross.  Since July 1st we have hod a daily  mail service.  An excursion was held to Halcyon  Springs last Sunday on tbe Empire  Lumber Co's new. tug. Among those  present were Mr. and Mrs. G. Sumner  and son; Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Diamond  and son, and others from Camborne,  also Mr. and Mrs. Fred Porter, of  Beaton. Mine Host McNaught entertained his visitors in proper style.  Thanks are due tbe Lumber Co. for  the use of the tug, and to the Captain  and crew for their kind attention on  the trip.  Handsome Bank Notes  The Imperial Bank of Canada has  just had engraved in England a handsome new series of notes, embracing  the $.">, $10, $20, $50 and $100 denominations.  The well-known old issues will continue in use Sor the present and until  sufficient of the new notes have been  prepared for circulation. The most  fastidious of tastes will be satisfied"  with the new issue, which in point of  workmanship and in excellence of  design have no superiors in -Canadian  bank notes. All the notes are' flne  pieces of work and are examples of the  best English skill, in that particular  line of manufacture���������and .that is the -  be8t"in the world.  In keeping with the title of the bank  the notes are decidedly imperialistic  in their engravings, embracing portraits of his Majesty the King on the  highest denomination���������the $100 notes;  of her Majesty the.Queen~on*XKe $50  -.notes; of *-*his Highness,,the Prince of  JVales .on.,the-,S20.i������gwe;jBt.her Highness the Princess of-"Wales on the $10 *  paper; and of Prince Edward of Wales *  on the $5 notes.  On each of them, clearly and strongly brought' out, is some symbol or.  figure representing the Empire of  Canada. All the engraving is carefully  and beautifully done in the strong  vii ile style so characteristically British, which in itself is an Imperial  mark. The expressions are excellently  brought out, and the portraits are.  indeed lasting memorials of English  skill and thoroughness.  Doubtless partly with the sentimental view of giving.one value for his  money the $100, $50 and $20 notes are  novel in this respect that they are  nearly though not qnite double the  width of the present ordinary notes,  but all are of the same length. This  idea, however, was not the main one  that induced the bank authorities to  be liberal in the size of these notes of  larger denomination. They are naturally much more difficult to counterfeit  and there is little or no possibility of  paying them out in mistake for notes  of smaller���������denomination- This_will   not, however, worry the general public  vcry much, for obvious reasons. They  are made slightly smaller than double  to prevent mistakes in handing theni  out for the lesser bills and at the same  time to protect their edges from fraying in packing and shipping. Being  slightly less when doubled than the  width of an ordinary bill the edges are  thus protected in packing them with -  the latter style.  The issue is decidedly a beautiful  one in workmanship and in the coloring and shading, which is gone into in  the detailed description o'f. the bills  and their tints, which is given below.  The $100 bill is yellow and pink;' the  350 is green and yellow; the $20 pink  and yellow; the $10 greyish blue .and  the $5 yellow. The fronts of the notes  to the naked eye appear to be ordinary  tints, but on examination under' the  glass the tinting is shown to be made  of the words, "Imperial Bank of Canada five dollars," etc.  Tbe issue is certainly a credit to the  British workman and to the Imperial  Bank of Canada.���������Toronto Telegram.

As Curtis  slopped  to  light  a cigar
For several minutes tho four grappled, breathing heavily; then Curtis
threw thcm off.
"Jf you hurt mc you will be sorry," he hurled his defiance at them.
'*My dog is now gono with a nolo
which tells of my. danger. He will
bring help."
'���Let him go," suid the fair man
"Arrd, if I might suggest.���soon,"
said Curtis placidly. "Help will
undoubtedly arrive."
When    Curtis reached  tho    corner,
flame-  brought  out thc     strong   lo found Ty* sitting stolidly on   the
lines of his face. At tho same
moment ho was struck sharply oa
the cheek by something soft nnd perfumed, which slipped  to his shoulder
end   theneo     to   the  gn    leaving
bcgiml the fragrance of the spring
Before hc stooped to find the unusual missile. Curtis involuntarily
looked up. In the open window of
the dark house in front of which he
stood he could just discern a blur
of white. The blur resolved itself
into the tender form or" a girl; then
Eho  drew  tho   curtain   quickly.
iro bent to pick up the thing that
had struck him, nnd discovered that
Pyx was holding it patiently in, his
niouth. Pyx was Curtis's dog, nn
Irish terrier. lie was his master's
inseparable companion -when thc big
man took walks in the streets of
St.   Petersburg.
"Como under the lamp. Pyx,"
commanded Curtis. And the dog
trotted obediently to tlv*. corner,
where his master took from him ^ a
bunch of violets tied.'.'with ribbon of
the same color, and enfolding ai bit
of crisp paper.
He read the hurried words :
"X dort't know who you are, but
you are an Englishman, and I believe you arc a gentleman! .Two
nights you have passed the house���
you and your dog���and I.have' heard
vour voice as you spoke to him; it
gave me courage. In the' niorning,
nt six, I shall bo alone. Will you
come to me then ? I need help at
That was all. On the surface it
looked liko the rambling of an insane person,, but Curtis retained
some of the illusions of his early'
youth'. . '
"We will think it over while we
have a bite, Pyx," he said nnd led
lho way to a little out-of-the-way
place, whero he ordered a simple
Under thc stronger light Curtis
once more examined the violets, nnd
discovered that tho ribbon which
tied tliem was stamped with a
Mrange device topped with a crown.
As hc looked up ho met thc gaze
of a man seated at a tabic opposite,
a small, fair, red-checked individual,
with the ends of his moustache upturned. "���"
"Beg  pardon !"    he     said.      "Hog
pardon,   but might 1  ask  where you
got  those violets ?"
Curtis  looked   at  him. ���
"Xo."-     he      said,      "you      might
not I"
The little man fidgeted and reddened.
"Hut I must insist !" hc said; "it
is  important that  ]  should  know."
������'That  you  should   know  nothing ! |
Vou  can  buy a bunch of violets   at
nny  street  corner."
The little man leaned over and
put:.an impressive hand on Curtis's
**But not with that ribbon, . my
dear sir," ho said.
"What do you know ?" Curtis asked in turn.
The .little man fairly squirmed.
"I  cannot  tell  you.'    Come     with
me '" he pleaded.
Curtis followed the foreigner out
into the stormy street. They walked some distance before they stopped at a dark stone house". The
door was opened by a concierge, who
showed them into a handsomely-appointed library-
Here sat two men. One was tall
and dark; the other short and grey.
Curtis's guide did not stop for introduction or explanations.
"Good dog, r.vxio !" said Curtis,
as tlie two plodded to tlio hotel;
"we fooled I hem. They took you
for a trick dog, nrrd expected the
whole  of  thc  secrot police."

At five o'clock in thc morning they
were out agnin in front of tho dark
house of mystery.
The lady of tho violets opened thc
door before Curtis could ring.
"Como in I" she commanded, and
led them to a back room.
Then Curtis saw hcr face.   He had
been prepared for beauty, but he had
not    thought   to  find  such youthful
"I can trust you," she said.
Then Curtis' did a strange    thing.
Ho dropped   on   one knee and    carried tho appealing hands to his lips.
"Let me serve you," he cried, "my
princess'!'.' .
'She  drew  back  from  Curtis     with
terror: -      . '���-.���������
"How did you know !" she stammered. "How did you know _I was
a. princess ?"
.   "I   saw . Heinz     and  thc others,"
said   Curtis,   and  told  his  story.
And when he had finished, she told
her own.
"Did they tell you," she said,
"that they intended to force mo to
marry tho princo of another pro-
vince-^-my cousin ? To force me,
who have breathed the breath of
freedom in the forests���to shut mc
up in a dreary castle, loveless and
unloved ? ' I could not stand it, and
1 ran away."
"Alone ?"
"No; I made Miss Powell, my English governess, como with me. She
wants mo to go back to my kingdom; that is why 1 appealed to you.
I won't go back !"
"You shall not !" said Curtis earnestly.
He unfolded a plan thnt had

As a race of suicides, tho Japanese

or honorable self-slaughter, is past.
The military portion of the empire is
especially susceptible, as the following incidents brought nbout directly
by tho war will show :
In tho early days of tho strugglo
an order reached tlio militury headquarters at Aomori, in northern Japan, to prepare to take the field.
A very smnll. portion of tho garri-j
son wus to bo loft behind to keep
up the military department.
Ono young Lieutenant named Sng-
uya, was chosen to command the
smnll party remaining. Hc received
tho command submissively. He took
upon himself the character of host

provided all manner of diversions for

dinner to his fellow Licutanants, in
which ho was tho lifo of the gathering.
In a short speech before the ban-
,quct broke up and he delivered an
eloquent toast to the future of the
command, foretelling triumphant
marches, splendid victories, and���his
voico was shaking a little���spoko of
the heroes returning home in glory.
With his head bowed down, ho ended
by saying that he had hoped ""to go,

Saguya accompanied tho regiment
to tho port of embarkation, and was
tho first and last to yoll "Banzai!

Upon returning to the fort the
Lieutenant wont directly to his
quarters. Tho next morning his orderly found him lying upon tho mating,  his abdomen rent
in  tho    hideous fashion  of thc hari-
kari.      And  the  short  sword   of  tho
harikari     had     boon  returned  to  its
scabbard aftor its task was done.
It is plain from tho words of Saguya. at the banquet that hc saw tho
better way, that ho understood the
necessity of somebody remaining -to
perpetuate the garrison at Aomori���
that his detention was only luck and
no reflection upon his valor���but the
blood of thc ancient Samurai was
strong within him and triumphed
against his better .knowledge.
.About tho middle of March several
valuable horses belonging to one of
tho Tokio forts broke from their
pickets and fell into the moat surrounding tho grounds. T'he beasts

recruiting office, pierced his abdomen
again and again with a blunt knife
until ho fell.
Thero aro many of thoso stories.
And many similar and useless sacrifices occur without tho public eyo.
Acquaintances ask what has bocomo

learn, but moro often thero is no answer. - .
Tho Jnpnnoso Government keeps
such matters secrot wiren possiblo,
lest suicide bocomo a contagion as in
olden days, and fighting blood bo depleted.
Ono of the most crucial moments
in tho history of tho empire occurred
ten years ago, when tho Triple Al-
linnca dictated to Japan nnd thrust
aside tho fruits of tho conquering of
tho Chinese. The Emperor had returned to tho capital from Hiroshima, whero ho had personally directed the campaigns of the wnr.
It is said that a hundred thousand
people assembled along. the way
where the imperial carriage was to
pnss. Mingled with the crowd in
| great numbers were tho Samurai, tho
military class which would have arrayed itself with joyful heart against
the Triple Alliance or all tho world���
rather than to submit to a victory
without tho trophies of conquest.
It is a known fact that tho Emperor dared not look out of his carriage, lest at tho sight of his faco
tho moro impulsive elemont of tho
Samurai would slay thomselves he-
cause wisdom had prevailed and they
were not allowed to contend at that
timo ,ngainst  tho  combined Powers.
Infinite generations have inculcated
in tho Japanese mind a capacity for
tho last despcrato act of man���
brought him close to- tho possibility
of it, tho glamor of honor has mado
it easy to embrace, and tho hereafter
self-achieved allures rather than restrains.
And the point of all this is that
in thc coming land campaigns toward Harbin, Port Arthur, Vladivostok or wherever clso a Japanese
column may beat its way���there will
bo few, if any, prisoners taken by
thc Russians. .The Jap will keep his
last blado and his last pound of
strength for himself.

Tho tailored shirt waist has a rival
in tho simple sheer blouse, but . it
has by no moans' been supplanted,
and, for certain purposes, it is decidedly moro desirable than any other
separate waist.
For outdoor summer snorts tho
shirt waist is tho thing, and a host
of women maintain stoutly that a
trim tailored shirt waist is moro chio
in connection with.a coat and skirt
morning costumo than tlio daioticst
of sheer ombroidorcd blouses. Tho
latter is, perhaps, moro distinctly feme
inino, moro exquisito in'quality, anl
strongest argument of all,'more Pnri��
sinn; but it loses its freshness and
daintiness readily, and when mussed
has littlo charm.
"��� Tho shirt waist, made of stouter
stud' and severely tailored, stands
rough wear better, resists tho reckless
assaults of the laundress, and is really an indispensable fcaturo of tho
summer girl's Wardrobe.
The shirt waist suit is of courso
smarter than tho separate shirt waist
and thero is a marked tendency, this
season to mako up simple. skirts to
match shirt waists of all kinds. If
tho prices asked at popular' . shirt
waist makers' shops.,for tho whole
frock are out" of proportion'to a woman's income she in many cases has
hor waists mado at the shop, buys
enough material- matching the waists
fpr- skirts, and makes the skirts herself at homo.
Some.very good shirt waist makers
will use materials bought by the customer; but unless one goes to a good
maker the safest course is to buy a
good pattern, hire an inexpensive
-seamstress, and have thc waists mado
at' home under one's own direction.
To make a shirt waist may soem a
simple proposition, but as a matter
of fact a really satisfactory shirt
waist is a raro thing. Vcry careful
fitting is required; and in tho largo
shops, where hundreds of tho waists
aro turned out in a weojc, and many
workpeople aro employed, mistakes
arc of frequent occurrence. A" careless
workwoman may undo tho work of a
careful fitter, and often the homemade shirt waist, fitted early - and
often, and watered at every "point in
its progress, turns out much better
than the expensive shirt waist ordered at* the fashionable shop.''

A curiously complicated story of  Oriental manoeuvring, Russian intrigue, Chinese commercial jugglery  and Thibetan efforts to throw oil a  hated suzerainty circles round tho  history of Colonel Younghusband's  mission to tho mysterious city of  tho Lamas says tho London Express.  To make this history plain in the  light of tho events recorded in our  news columns to-day it is necessary  to dour tho ground of sonic persistent misconceptions. Chief, perhaps, of these, is the deeply-rooted  belief that Lluisn. tho ultimate object of tlie mission, is a sacred city.  A.s a matt or of fact, Lhasa is purely  xi priest-created stronghold. It hns  not, und never has had, any inherent sanctory, any claims conferred  by history or tradition, to hold it-  hell* aloof from the world, ns somc-  ���������thirrg deniable by outside touch, its  population is as mixed, its customs  as unsniritly. and its streets os diity  as those of any Indian native city.  Bound up in this misconception as  ���������to tho sanctity of thc city is the  _ -theory that it is the headquarters,  the great and central shrine of Buddhism, of which tho Dalai Laura,  or "Ocean Priest," is hold to bo tho  incarnation. But the religion .of  tho Thibetans ir. not oven Buddhism,  except in a diluted and corrupted  -lorm of sulnl-wors.hip and the adorr  "ation of many gods, with the'addition of the Buddhistic doctrine of  reincarnation.  TROUBLE IS OLD.  A third misconception is that the  Imperial Government ha\e been all  along aiming at the annexation of  Thibet. The mission has had no  such purposo in view, and and until  the hostility of thc Thibetans���������induced on the one hand by Russian  agents, nnd on the other by tho Viceroy S7.e-chu.1n���������made tho advance of  Col. Younghusband with his handful of Sikhs" impossible, tho mission  was purely a peaceful and political  one.  Nor is the mission a thing of today or yesterday. It has now  reached within sonic ISO miles of  Lhasa: it started in thc days of  "Warren Hastings. It had.in view-  in theso days, as primarily it has  now, tho establishment of commercial relations with Thibet. If it  has moro than that, in view ��������� to-day  the responsibility lies with the Thi-  liclans themselves. So far as' hostilities are concerned, they 'were begun in recent times, in 18S0, when  -the Thibetans invaded the .British  ^dependency of Sikkim, and there  was heavy fighting on thc high altitudes near llic Jolnp Pass. ��������� .7  CONVENTION NOT KEPT.  Tibct.has been tributary to China  sinco* it was -finally conquered" by*  thut country in 1720, but when representations were made at Pekin  with regard to''this invasion of Sik-  kim, tho Chinese Government declared ils -complete inability to interfere with the activity and , aggressiveness of its vassal. And the  essence of thc situation to-day lleo  in the fact -that this powcrlessness  . of tho suezerain powor has been  manifested ever since. In 1890 * n  .convention wns signed between tho  Chinese 'Envoy and Lord Lansdowne  (then Viceroy of India) with tho object of delimitating the Thibct-  Sikkim frontier and facilitating  trade relations between Thibet and  India. Threo years later Regulations were drawn up to give effect  to the terms of tho convention. But  if" any single ono of those regula-  'lations has boon carried out. the  circumstance' has certainly escaped  notice.       :  THREATENED TREATY.  The Thibetan authorities have expended - endless ingenuity in ob-  , structing trade routes across the  Himalnyns, and in making commercial intercourse with India impossible. Thoy have ' not hesitated to  arrest and imprison British subjects;  thoy. havo opposed every effort to  adjust tho northern boundary* of  Sikkim; and "they have resolutely re-'  fused to mako any effort, to carry  out tho terms of lhe convenii-jn. In  this attitude of undisguised In siility  "Tli ibet- lras"al r"alorig~ beof^prjTiiplod"  by Russia. Of that rirc'imslunco  tliere is evidence too ample to bc disputed. Four years ago Russia vas  supplying the Thibetans .with aims,  missi'.'irs were cxcli.-uij*\*:I l.e'Weon the  two countries, and a Russian subject and agent was directing tho attitude* of- the lamas from Lhasa  itself.  In 1902 Sir Ernest Satow, British  Minister at Pclciii. was ablo to toll  Lord Landsdowuc that Russia had  concluded a secret treaty with China  guaranteeing to .maintain thc integrity of that, country. Tho price wns  Thibet.-' The sequel was a stern  warning from Lord Lansdowne to  the Chinese Government that if  such an arrangement woro contemplated "or carried out. Britain would  tako steps to protect hor own interests.''  CHINESE CONTROL.  ��������� ��������� 'During'a'-brief period of'.quiesconce  which followed, the Viceroy of Sze-  chuan'exerted such'influence as ho  -possessed to obstruct l.ho ;friendly  opening-up of lndo Thibetan - trade  relations. Through this province���������  to which portions of Thibet were attached in 1787���������the bulk of Thibet's  trude has passad for moro than a  hundred years and the viceroy, was  bound to resist, by all the dubious  means known to Chinese diplomacy,  a movement which might, havo the  effect of diverting some of that profitable commerce to other routes.  The situation thus experienced u  fresh complication.  A third complication lay in the  fact thnt tiie Chinese mi/erarnly ovor  Thibet hail long been 11 warring power. Early in last year Lord Cur-  7.011, aflor pointing out Hint nil prist,  attempts lo deal with Thibet  through China had failed, declared  that the Indian (lovoniinciit "regarded lho so-called suzerainty of  China an 11 constitutional fiction���������a  ���������������*>*?'���������'"V:  political affectation which has only  beeu maintained because of its convenience to both parties"; and, under cover of which, it may bo added  Russian intrigue was having everything its own way. China and tho  Lamas were tho Spenlow and Jorkins of the Enst. Spenlow was  willing, anxious, burning, to open  the rond to India's trade, but Jorkins wns so short-sighted, so stupid,  so blind to his own interest, so obstinate and immovable. And Jorkins, appealed to in thc same wny,  retorted in tho samo strain���������that  wretched   suzerainty    stood   In     tho  ' ������J''     PRESENT MISSION.  Then camo. tho tardy decision of  tho Imperial Oovorniuent, arrived at  nftor much urging ou the part of the  Government of India, to ignoro tho  intermediary, and deal directly with  Thibet. It was agreed that tho  Dalai Lama and tlio British mission  should meet at Khainba-jong last  year, and discuss the whole question 'in a perfectly amicable spirit.  Colonel Younghusband was sent  thither, but thc Dalai Lunin fuilcd  to keep tho appointment.  Tho mountain advanced towards  Mahomet, then busily engaged at  Lhasa in burrishing Russian arms  and at. almost every step of the  wny, the advance was threatened.  Menaces becamo deeds, and tho attacks at Oura marks tho final stage  of the .conversion in self-defence of a  mission of peace into an affair of  arms.  But that the peace of tho Thibetan  silences is threatened is in the highest degree.improbable. The. Thibetans, buoyed-up by false hopes and  Russian promises destined to bc  broken, have all along been - convinced that Britain would bring no  force to bear upon her wishes. The  whole history of *the matter has  yielded support to that view. There  may ycl bo fighting at Gyangtsc,  but in all human - probability the  mission will have achieved ils aim  before that point is reached.  THE  RUSSIAN  GOSSADIS  SOMETHING OF THE FAMOUS  CAVALRY.  Thoy     Have    Glorious Traditions  and Are First-rate Fighting Men.  Tiro word Cossack is derived from  a Tartar word signifying bandit,  and up to 1814 tho Kazak lived 'up  to his name. The first Cossacks  took boat on tho Dnieper, the Volga  and the Don, and settled on the  banks of these groat rivers, living  by plunder and by the proceeds of  their fishing,, fighting generally on  foot, - but ��������� always remaining near  their boats, which secured them ' a  safe retreat in case of a reverse,  says thc military correspondent of  The London Times.  Closely bound up with every page  of- Russian history, the Cossacks  sometimes sided with the Czars, but"  as often against them. On the accession of Peter the Groat thoy  formed.a half circle round the southern frontiers, whicli they protected  from Tartar invasions, penetrating  later into Siberia, where they became ,lhe Russian advanced guard  against Kirghiz and Kalmucks. So  long-as theso communities remained  on the frontier and woro inured to  constant warfare they retained all  their' best qualities. Thc legends  interwoven with the names of Mazcppa and Platoll belong to heroic  periods of Cossack lore, and so, too,  do thc deeds of the Cossacks of thc  TJkainc and Zaporogin, whoso names  havo since passed away, though  thoir fame is abiding. As the Cossacks became morc settled in their  territories lo the northwest of . the  Black Sea, and the confines of Rus-'  sia marched rapidly past thcm "towards the cast, they became moro  confounded with the general population and less apt for-war.  SERVICE FOR LAND.  Tho first principle of Cossack service has always been that, in return  for a grant of land and freedom  from taxation," every man should  como out whon called upon and  bring his own horse, arms and  equipment. It is a system which  might with ndvuntngo bo applied  upon somo of the frontiers of Bri-  laiiYr^ In practice many- "changes-  have boon made, and the root principle is not ono that is any longer  generally respected. Many Cossacks  are too poor to provide their own  horses, nnd the cost of their equipment falls upon the slniiilsa, which  is put to heavy expense and is very  hard hit by nn order of mobilization. Wnr, for lho Cossack, is no  longer a business that pn.ys.  Tn 1875 a radical change wns made  in thc old-established methods of  Cossack service; the regiments wero  brigaded' with lho regular cavalry,  and their independence as a fighting  branch was destroyed. It is doubtful whether tho change was ~of advantage. The greatest successes of  the Cossacks in war, striking records of which wc find scattered  throughout thc writings of Napoleon's Generals, were due to thc  perservation of J.hoir 'particular and  very " unconventional . methods, of  combat, which wore thc absolute antithesis of the traditions of regular  cavalry. The tendency of late-years  has been to merge the Cossacks' with  thc rest.of the population, and old  Platoff would harly recognize in the  Cossack of to-day his unkempt warriors who wore down the chivalry of  Frdncc.  have  in  times  past  been  committed  to  Cossack guardianship.  These eastern voiskos havo been  constantly engaged wilh Asiatic enemies, and have hnd no experience of  regular fighting; thoso farthest east  have been reinforced by contingents  from thc Trans-Bnikal territory,  while tho tJssuri Cossacks have been  fortified by heavy drafts from the  Don, which havo been brought, round  by sea in tho Volunteer Fleet. The  five voiskos which are most immediately concerned in the present war  are those of Siberia, Semiretchinsk,  Trans-Baikal, Pri-Amur and TJssuri.  Their total population may bo put  down at about 750,000, besides non-  Cossacks, tho number of mules of  what is known ns "Cossnck condition"  being somo 180,000.  PRESENT WAR STREXCTH.  Tho war strength of these five communities at present is about 25,000  men and 20,000 horees, but. in these  numbers TJssuri and Pri-Amur do  not bulk largely. The total number of Cossacks in the same five  Vpiskos, presuming that tho wholo  available 20 classes aro called on,  and the opoltchenie or lands-turn  embodied is about CO,000 men, but  not moro than 5,000 of these belong  to the Ussuri and Pri-Amur communities. Although these fivo eastern voiskos havo 300,000.horses,  not a third aro fit for service, and  only 40,000 are fit for the saddle, of  which only 4,000 arc to bo found in  Pri-Amur--and Ussuri. This fact is  important, since It results that  nearly all thc horses in tho army  mobilized against Japan must como  from tho wost, save what can ho  collected from ncn-Cossack districts  or from  China.  Of courso theso five voiskos do not  represent the most important part  of tho Cossack forces, which aro  mainly in the Don and to the ������iorth  of the Cauacasus, with most of their  active regiments spread out liko a  fan round Russia's southwestern  frontiers. Some of these, no doubt,  can be sont east, and we have reports that regiments from tho Caucasus and thc Don have already  marched, but it must bo remembered  that the Cossacks represent the  chief element in tho Russian cavalry  of tho present day. They are tho  mainstay of-internal law and order,  while on the great plains of thc  west cavalry is for Russia what  ships arc for England, and the frontiers cannot be largely denuded df  these. valuable! troops. Moreover,  even if a reinforcement is required  in the east, the Cossack territories  west of Orenburg aro no "more favorably placed to supply troops than  any other military dislrict. Even  in the territories of the eastern  voiskos, it is a fnr cry from Lake  Baikal to Port Arthur. One mny  put down tbe maximum number . of  Cossacks available "for service at  50,000 mon betwoen.Lake Baikal and  tho Pacific. This figure is only given as an indication, for it is obvious that' during a war in East  Asia it is not a question "of what  number of meu and horses Russin  possesses, but of how many she can  keep in the field.

A joint resolution demanded  lho immediate withdrawal of the  Spanish forces from Cuba, nml empowered tho President lo employ tho  whole military and naval resources  of tho United States to cnrry it into  elTect. It is not necessary hero to  recount the course of tlm war.

INTERFERENCE JUSTIFIED  MEANING        OF        ''INTERVENTION" IN TIME  OF WAR.  Hague      Convention Provides    ior  Friendly Mediation, Not for  Armed Intervention.  It is a curious . feature of modern  warfare that, in consequence of the  complicated interests ol tho Great  Powers, the word "intervention" is  sooner or later sure to be mentioned  during an armed conflict.  There is no longer tho old tendency  to form a * ring and let the combatants fight it out^by themselves. What  with Dual and Triple Alliances, "understandings," rapprochements, and  ententes cordiales, tho chief difficulty,  now-a-days is to prevent a-war from  spreading, and involving th'o whole of  Europe. Yet, according to thc law  of nations, intervention is not recognized.

EXERCISING THE RIGHT.  According to Article Three of the  Hague Convention of 1899, "Powers,  strangers to the dispute, have the  right to offer their good oflices and  mediation even during hostilities."  Further on tho Article says: "The exercise of this right can never be regarded by thc parties in conflict ns  an unfriendly act.".- This, of course,  only provides for friendly mediation,  and not for armed intervention. Yet  though international law ignores intervention, thc thing itself remains a  stern fact. European .intervention  was the secret hope ot the late Boer  Republics in their struggle against  the= overwhelming might of-^Enjland.  European intervention was prevented  by Great Britain during the Spanish-  American War of .1898. In the latter'  case, any interference by European  Powers would have been intervention  upon intervention, as the cause of the  war, in the first place, was the United States intervening between Spain  and the Cubans.  At the opening of the year 1898 the  Spanish authorities had not succeeded  in pacifying Cuba, though since 1895  no less than 225,000. Spanish troops  had heen sent to the island.

Tho three intervening Powers required tliat Japan should give up  Port Arthur and "all tho portions of  the mainland ceded to lior by Chiiia,  in consideration of which sho was to  receive nn additional thirty million  taels of indemnity. This naturally  enraged tho Japanese, who had spent  so much blood and treasure in gaining the victory over their huge op-  .ponent, and if Great Britain had  supported the Japs there would'havc  boen a European war so slupendpus  as to dwarf every armed conflict in  history.

At twenty minutes past  two, on June 1.1th, 1878. the German Imperial flag was hoisted over  the building, indicating that the Congress was begun, and on July 1.1th  fie Treaty of Berlin was signed.

I  fancy I am not astray in surmising  that these people have year by year  been taking out, oil and bone, to the  value of at least .?100,000. Some  years ago the Hudson's Bay Company made large profit out of tho oil  of tlio senl and white whale, .and refined lho oil nt their northern ports;  now, as tlie oil has a less commercial  value, they liave censed this industry.  Tlio walrus is hunted not only by the  native Eskimo, who roams the sliorc  lino of tho bays and straits and kills  this huge animal from Lcyak and ice  floo, but also by the company's men,  who seek it in small vessels out from  Churchill.  THE RIVERS WHICH FLOW  into Ungava Bay and doubtless others further west, abound in salmon���������:  salmon equal in flavor to those of  New Brunswick. The Hudson's Bay  Company at one timo found it worth  while to send a ship to Ugava and  George's River for salmon alono to  bo shipped in cold storage. I boliove  this ship has been .discontinued, but  I think; it probable for reasons oilier  than the failure" or tha fishery.

What wonder that'the Manitoban and  Northwest farmer have considered  whether Hudson's Bay nnd slraits  aro not the natural and best outlet  from the Northwest granary lo the  markets of Europe. Churchill is only  850 miles from Edmunton, 620 miles  from Princo Albert and 640 miles  from Winnipeg and thc soa route  from Churchill to Liverpool is but  3,308 miles.  NAVIGATION OF STRATTS  is not a new thing. Vessels had  ploughed thoso northern waters beforo the- Ohnmplnin had paddled  across Lako Ontario. The vessels  of the Hudson's Bay Company were  passing regularly to and' fro between Great "Britain . and thc company's forts, whilo as yet tlie sole  navigation of tho great lakes was in  bircli bark canoes. Tt was in 1612,  Hudson's fourth voyage to America,  that he passed through the Straits  into Hudson's Bay. Of course, his  object wn.s not to report on the resources of tlm buy���������ho hoped to have  discovered a new route to Cathay  ���������to  China.  The original charter of tho Hudson's Ilu'y Company wns granted in  1668, in which Prince. Rupert sent an  expedition into the Bay, and Fort  "CluTrlcsT" llic""first��������� Efiglisli-sollleiiiohtT  wns established near the mouth of  Rupert's River. For nearly 200 years  the company's ships havo been passing bnckwnrds and forwards through  the Straits, and - seem not to have  been liable to any large percentage  of disaster. Tt must, however, be  bornu in mind Hint tlie ships huve  until recent yr-nrs been sailing vessels, and making but one trip pur  annum. hnve passed through tho  Straits when there has been very  little Ice. They leave Scotland so as  to roach the entrance of the Straits  about August 1st, and within loss  than two months they are again out  of llu* Straits homeward bound.  ICE FLOES TN THE BAY.  Mr. Stupart then proceeded to give  some particulars relating to the  length of time navigation in lho bay  is impeded or actually suspended  through  the ice,  then  continued:���������  "T givo tho following as the season  during which' navigation may in ordinary years be regarded as practicable  for the .purpose of commerce; ' not  indeed to the cheaply built freight  steamer, commonly known as the  ���������oconn tramp,' but to vessels of about  2,000 Ions grass, fortified for meeting ice. and of such construction ns to  enable tliem lo be fair freight carriers. These vessels must bc  strengthened forward; should have  wooden sheeting nnd bo very full under the counter; the propeller should  bo of Riiinll diameter and be well  down in flip "water. I placo the limit  of size nt about 2,000 tons because a  larger ship would bo somewhat un-  wieldly. could not make, such good'  way through thc loose ice, arrd being  unable to turn so sharply she would  got many a heavy blow that the  smaller ship would escape."  WAKEIIAM'S  EXPERIENCES.  Tho  speaker  thon  went  on  to  g'me  details     concern  "ap-  tain Wakeham, tho commander of  a whaling vessel and concluded his  remarks thus:���������  In judging of tho suitability of  Hudson's Straits as a commercial  trade route we have not to consider  during what period of each year a  Dundee whaler or a specially constructed ico crusher can navigate the  straits, but rather during what period an ordinary well found iron ship  with a master of usual experience  can investigate them with an ordinary degree or" safety. Tho result of  Investigation is not uncertain���������such a  ship may with safety enter thc  straits early in July .arrd should she  have good luck sho may get through  to the buy with but a fow delays in  the ice, but delays of a week or ten  days will not be infrequent. At the  close of tho season ships should not  leave Churchill later than the middle  of October, because at that date winter has set in, and being caught in  tho icefields is a serious-matter when  the floes become cemented together  by the increasing cold.  Last summer the good stout, whaler "Neptune" again took an expedition to Hudson's Bay, to study its  resources and assert British sovereignty. Mr. A. P. Low, than whom  no bolter man could have been obtained in the Dominion, is in command and one of the most famous ice  captains of Newfoundland has charge  of tho ship.

The Japs Are     Polite and Hospitable,  Character Ts Simple   ������  and Childlike.  CARRYING COAL FOR LUCK  ABOUT THE  QUEEP  SUPERSTITIONS OF THIEVES.  Pickpockets Have a Regular   Code  of Lucky and Unlucky  Omens.  Except, perhaps, the professional  gambler, there is no morc superstitious being on earth than the professional criminal. No burglar worthy  of the namo, for instance, will, on  any account, uso another man's skeleton keys or dark lantern. Such a  proceeding, ho opines, will be certain  to bring him "bad luck."  Yet, .curiously enough, no belief is  more prevalent among members of  lho crib-cracking fraternity than that  a jemmy which has onco been used  successfully in a "big job," will, if  given ,a fair chance, repeat tlie performance. Cases have boen known  whero burglars have given so much as  S100 and $150 for the jemmy with  whicli somo famous jewel robbery has  been accomplished.  Tho number of burglars committed  on tho sixth day of the week is fewer by nearly fifty por cent, than those'  perpetrated on any other day olher  day. This can only bo. due to the  well-nigh universal superstition which  regards Friday as an unlucky day.  Moreover, a similar, though less  strongly-marked drop, is noticed - on  the thirteen o.f each month.  . Many criminals have "unlucky-  days" of thoir own. - "Harry tho  Valet," who stole ii.a Duchess of  Sutherland's jewels, invariably declined to "work" on the seventh of tho  month, or on any multiple thereof.  '  IN T1HS BRITISH MUSEUM  there is preserved a curiously-marked  flat stone, described as having boon  used by a note:! thief as a calendar  for calculating lucky and unlucky-  dates.  . Pickpockets have a regular code of  lucEy and unlucky omens of their  own, by which thoy regulate tlieir actions while on '���������business*' bent.  For example, tliey will not, on any  account, rob a cross-eyed person���������especially if that person bc a female���������  nor one having -a club foot. To_ do  so~thoy think, will insure them forty-  days of ill-luck.  Strangely enough, too, tlio finding  of a "lucky" coin���������i. c., ono with a  bole through it���������among the contents  of a purloined purso, is esteemed of  evil augury. And tho same applies to  bent or twisted money. Indeed", it  frequently happens that the discovery  of a single srrch damaged piece will  suffice to induce the thief to throw  nwny oven a "well-lined" p'urse, together with all its contents.  ���������A-single five-cent piece is esteemed  good luck, but more than one. in the  same purse, is very bad. and the badness of the luck increases with the  number of five-cent  piercs.  Some little time back, during the  trial of a notorious pickpocket, it  camo orrt that ho liad. one morning,  robbed nn old lady of a bulky purse.  On opening it. he discovered, lo his  horror, thnt it contained nothing but  FIVE   CF.ST  PIECES.  sixty or seventy of them at the very-  least. He p'romptly pitched purse  and coins out of the window.  Again, when pickpockets���������and this  applies ulso to sneak-thieves, area-  robbers, and others of that ilk���������start  out upon their nefarious business,  they invariably keep a sharp look-out  for the first policeman. Nor will  they, ns n general rule, commit a  robbery until they have seen liim.  If his back is turned" towards them  they believe they have a good and  safe day beforo them; while if he i.s  coming, or even looking, in their direction. Uiey will frenuently give up  the idea of theieving for Hint entire  day.  A black cat, if a householder only  know it, is moro efficacious in protecting their houses from forcible entry than half a dozen mastiffs. Even  Bill Sykes himself would have left  severely alone a tenement containing  no ill-omened a denizen.  On tho other' hand, a horseshoe  nailed above the door of even tlie  most zealously-guarded mansion is  a direct Invitation to the prowing  burglar to try his luck there. -  If you want to know what people .  really are you should see them at  home, said a gentleman who had  spent twenty years of his life in tho -  country of the Mikado; nnd. judged  by that tost, I am qurte sure thero  are no more delightful people on  enrth than the Japanese. To livo  among them nnd to know thcm intimately is to love them; you simply  can't help yourself, for whatever prejudices you may take with you to  Japan they nre sure nil to melt  away before you have been there' a  month'.  The keynote of the Japanese character is its simplicity and childlike-  ncr>s. You cannot walk through a  village 6treet without seeing grownup and even middle-aged people playing ball or flying kites, with all the  iinfcinncd enjoyment of schoolboys.  They live in glorified dolls'-houses,  tlieir furniture and their table eguip-  ments are like so many pretty toys,  and life generally is just a delightful  bit of make-believe.  You won't be long in Japan beforo you will bo made a welcome  guest in moro than one household.  Really there ore no such polite and  hospi tablo peoplo anywhere. If you  are walking through a village you  aro almost sure to receive a most  courteous invitation from someone or  other to step indoors and drink a  cup of tea with  YOUR UNKNOWN HOST.  He will conduct you to the veranda,  a tray witli tea and sweetmeats will  be brought, and your host will entertain you witli bright conversation  as long as you please, and all tho  timo give you tho impression that he  thinks himself the most honored of  men.  Your first meal in a Japanese houso  will be a very interesting experience,  I can assure you. Each guest, you  must know, has a little tablo all" to  himself, and on this table all the different courses are placed on tiny-  plates. You may begin in topsyturvy fashion witli fruit and sweets;  or, if the meal is an elaborate one.  soup will make its appearance first,  to bo followed by fish of different  kinds beautifully cooked, usually in  tlie form of a ball, and cut into slices. Following courses will consist of  an omejlette. a fricassc of chicken,  stewed chestnuts, lotus-roots boiled  in soy, bamboo shoots, or other na- <  tivo delicacies all most daintilv served. - \  During these preliminary courses 3*011  may drink as much as you please of  the national beverage, sake, a most  exhilarating, if not vcry sweet-smelling, liquid, mado from rice, and calculated to mok'c you feel bouyant in  a very short time.  THE DIFFERENT  COURSES  I liave enumerated all serve the pur-  .  pose of loading    up to Hie-crowning"  dish of thc feast���������rice,  which" is    the  most important feature of every Jap- *  anese menu.    And when the rice stage  is reached,  farewell  to  tho'sake,    for'  you  must not think  of drinking now.  The  rice,  snow-whito  and most seductively ' cooked,     is    served by    a   -  daintv handmaiden kneeling at a tub,  and  if you  wish-to please your hostess you must take at least three or  four   helpings    of it.       You  will oat  your rice from a pretty porcelain   or  lacquered-wood bow],  whicli you will  raise to the level of your lips    whilo  you ladle the    rice inlo your mouth,"  a.s best you can. with" a pair of ivory -  or  silver  chopsticks.  When you have fared sufficiently  well you wil! bc expected to drink at  least one cup of tea���������not the beverage .  you know in England,, but a slraw-  colored infusion of green tea taken ���������  without milk or sugar; in fact, so  weak is the lea that you can scarcely call it an infusion. However, it is  very palatable and refreshing, and  like all things Japanese, even sake,  IT "GROWS ON YOU."  When thi.s final stage of tl\o meal    is  passed you  are at  liberty  to    smoke:  and the ladies of thc household   will  bear    you    company.     Each' of tliem  will-produce-5i-long7-dainty-pipe with   a bowl no larger tlinn the lower half  of a thimble; in this she will place  n liny pinch of tobacco, and with two  or three pretty puffs it is gone, and  fills it up again. But it is all done  so gracefully and she is so captivating altogether that you ure delighted  instead of being shocked.  Time was when a Japanese lady ���������  even the mother or the family���������wns  considered quite an inferior creature,  nnd it was only as an act of grncu  that she was allowed lo sit down to  one meal a day with her lord and  master. But times have changed, and  to-day tho Japanese wife is one of  the. most envied of her sex, honored  and cherished ty Irer Husband nnd  allowed overy indulgence and freedom. Of course, I have been describing a household of the better class;  but in every Focial grade of Japan  you will find the same courtesy to  strangers, the same delightful child-  likeness, and the same simple, well-  ordered, frugal lives.���������London Tit-  Bits.

OIL AND COAL LANDS  IN EAST KOOTENAY  The Colonist i.s accused  of niiiking  an '-attack" upon All: Macdonald,   the  leader of the Opposition, in connection  with his interview in  the   Kosslaiid  "Miner.     "We     are   not   conscious   oi'  having   gone   beyond   the   limits   of  legitimate   criticism.     The  interview  iir question was so far as  language  is .  concerned a very severe arraignment  of   the  Government policy,  and not-  justified by any facts adduced.    We  stated chat in condemning  the  policy  that had been pursued in  reference to  the applicants for conl and  petroleum  licenses .Mr. Maedorrakl   wns  in  duty  bound to give an   alternative  policy  whereby the merits of his  statesmanship could be judged "in  comparison.  A child  could  say  that   the' Oovern-  * ment was all  wrong,   and   the  most  natural  question to be suggested in  reply is "Why J"   All  we  wanted  to  know from  lhe leader of the Opposition are his reasons.    Those  can be  best formu ated in  a  straightforward  statement of what oughL to have been  clone instead of whnt was  dune.    "We  can only determine the relative  value  of things by comparison.    The way to  judge of the policy  decided  upon   in  reference to the lauds in question is to  lay  some   other   definite proposition  alongside of it and say ���������'��������� that is what  I would have done under the circumstances."   That would have  been   fair  ^jjidJioncyLt^iind^wq^  who was in earnest about it.     We dn  not say that Mr.   .Macdonald   is  not  fair and honest and in earnest; but lie  has given us no  proof  of it  in   this  matter.  The Government was con fron ted  with a set of condition?, for which as  a present administration it is nut  responsible. There Were a very large  number of applicants. Their claims in  many instances.overlapped each other  and in some instances covered the  earth twenty deep. They nil presumably believe in thc legality of  their claims. Had the Government  undertaken to decide upon the respective merits of these there would  have been such an uproar in tbe  Opposition press tbat any other part  of the globe would, in preference,  have been a paradise to live in for  weeks to conre. The Government  would have lieen accused of favoritism  and other crimes innumerable. On  the other hand, had the Government  undertaken to bear thc burden of  litigation in determining prior rights,  it would have been accused of supplying work for legal gentlemen oir the  Conservative side of politics at tremendous expense to the country. A.s  a matter of fact, under the circumstances, should the ratepayers of Lire  Province be put to the cost of ascertaining for the benefit of a number of  speculators who had  just claims and  who liad not ? If tliey chose to rush  and. slake claims they certainly did it  all heir own risk. Would the Government be justified in treating coal  and petroleum rights iir K.rsl lvootuiiay diU'orent from disputes in regard  to ordinary mineral claims ? Is there  any distinction in principle to justify  difl'orentialion ?  II   is   claimed   that   the    coal  and  petroleum  rights   should   have   been  put up to public criinpetil ion.    This as  air abstract proposition is   very plausible.    But   prospectors   bad acq ui red  leg-il rights  in   this   ease,   which  tlie  Government was bound   to  consider.  They   were   rights    acquired     under  existing laws and to  liave   gone   over-  the   beads   of   claimants   at auction  would have bean  t.-iiil.rirrnunt   to confiscation and  repudiation.    The  Government announced a. ^policy of  placing claimants in a  position  in   which  whatever rights they possessed- would  remain   unimpaired.     Considerations  of sound public policy demanded thai,  but no more.     That policy  has   beerr"  carried   out.    It   is   now   up   to   tire  critics uf tlie  Government  to present  an unsaillnble programme  of definite  detail tlrat would have been   otherwise  just to all  parties   concerned and  at  tire   same   time   have   conserved   tire  interests of the  public  at large.    "We  are told  tliat 31 r.   Macdonald   is  not  bound to supply the Government with  a policy.    XVe  say  that   the  Government having decided irrevocably upon  a course there is now  no  occasion for  the members of the  Opposition  concealing about their persons any patent  method, the rights of which tbey may  wish  to   protect   from  infringement.

Cressman, Revelstoke //  CANADA'S POSSIBILITIES  OF NATIONAL GREATNESS  The following patriotic sermon was  delivered by-?-the Rev. C. H. M. Sutherland in the Methodist Church on  Sunday evening July 3, the title of his  subject being 'Canada'-s Possibilities  of National Greatness."  "For wliat nation is thero so grout, who hath  <Io:l tho I.or I so u'gh unto thcm. as the Lord our  (imt i.s in nil thiiiu's tliat we call upon Hint for?  Ait.! what nation, is tliere so great, tliat hath  statutes anil judgments so righteous as all this  law whioh I set before you this day V"���������Doui. 4���������7.  These words wero uttered'liy a man  without n country. Ite knew no  fatherland, and yet lie. "wns probably  the greatest statesman the world has  ever seen. So great was liis genii's  that the impress of his statesmanship  is borne by. the er'tire civilized .'world'.  A wanderer on i he earth and yet so  intensely loyal to his people chat he  offered his life for their good. In those  words the groat Hebrew liberator and  legislator spoke ol the greatness of  his nation while yet Ihey were ti ending the sandy sod of tbe wilderness,  with no c-muliy except the orre of  Promise which lay before tin-irr, the  land of their hopes by day anil ol their  diearns by night. Happy is the country that has many suns an,1, daughters,  who looking around with kindling ej e  and beating  heart exclaim "For ������\hat  nation is there so great." And happy  are the people who div ell in surh a  land. The Israelite vvas intensely  patriotic. Woe to the country thai  awakens not in the lre.nU of its citizens the love of fatherland, runl woe  to the people having a great country  and yet in whose hearts no patriotic  sentiments ever swell. Tire rnau without a country is to be pitkd, but the  man having a noble fiitheil.ii.il and  yet devoid of love for liis land is to be  scorned.  Muses cries of his people. "For what  nation i.s there so givac*-" Aird with  Us nt this timo it cannot be unappiu-  priale to consider the possibilities of  our country'sgreatnes-. Thirty-seven  years ago last Friday the Dominion of  Canada, came'inro existence. Previous  to fh.it time tliere were a number ol  isolated colonies,1 owning allegiance to  Britain it is I rue. but without any  strong bond binding theni inlo ciu  solid vvjuile. The JJ. N. A. Act. w.ts  passed and tho scattered fragments of  British territory became organized  into one great country having one  Federal Government and a commi n  aim and ideal.  Province alter pio.ince entered in'o  the confederation until today it  vouches from thegaiden Province of  Prince Fdvvaid"Tslantl, whoso shores  are washed by the spavkiing waters  of the Atlantic Ocean, westward for  401)0 miles to where the Pacific's murmuring waves kiss the shores of Van*  Oliver's Isle, and the vvoidsof the  Hebrew patriot may not be altogether  meaningless as we repeat them today  87 years after union, "And wli.it nation is theie s<? great."  Canada's   Possibilities   of   National  Greatness.    Consider   these   possibilities   in   the   light   of    her   material  resources.    Material resources aie not  everything, but they are an inipoitant  something.     Think   of   her immense  territory, an  area of il, l.*j(t,3S.'' si[iiai'e  miles.     What  conception have we of  ftssize?   Very  vague.     Afierrthiuis-  jn-ds of years the name of Spurlii still  rings  with martial  music in the ems  of men and  makes their blood tingle,  but   famed Sparta   of old   was   only  about as large as our smallest province  of princely name.     If the influence of  Greece were  taken  out of  the woi Id  lioiv   infinitely   poorer  we would he.  ���������Greece���������the���������fountain���������of��������� sculpture,  poetry  and   philosophy.     Greece   of  Marathon and  Thurmopyle���������the province of Nova Scot In ia ahout equal to  "The Isles of  Greece*'  in area,    AVii.li  what throbbing hearts have vvo read  of the glorious struggle of the brave  Swiss mountaineers against the might  of   despotic   Austria,   freely   pouring  forth   their   blood   rather than bend  their   necks   beneath  tho  heel of the  oppressor.     And    down     from    the  mountains   of Switzerland   our swift  winged sympathy has travelled to the  plains of Holland and we glory in the  spirit  of  the brave Dutch as they cut  t))rh' dykes and let in the sen to cover  their hipd rather than  that the torch  nf. freeflow should he quenched.    But  "New Brnnsvvii'k  isifhout equal in sive  to Holland and Switzerland pmphirred.  The nlighty French nation has n history   that,   reads   like   n   llnllliiig romance.

In  the  heart   of   Europe lies I Ire inighly  German   Umpire, land   of   I'Vederiek  the Great, whose  kingdom   wan Pros*  Ma, Un iteil Gurmiiiiy of liiHinrii'ck mul  of the  Hr'ilan, anil  yet  tlie empire nf  the Kniser  In   Ithtrnpo could lie placed  within thu  limits of queenly Ontario  nnd have room still lo spare.    Iir the  virgin  province of Mniiltohn there Is  room enough   for  Turkey In I'.nriipc,  whilo iu  the  Prairie Territories then/  is room  enough   for  a  Turkey   nml  JJiissiii in Europe and ample spiieo to  spare for another.another France and  a Spain.    And  yet we  have only reached the  Rocky Mountains.    What about B.C.?  Some   of   you   good people who have  come   from   the   boundless readies or*  the prairies perhaps imagine that here  you are crumped for room.    Do not be  alarmed for  within   the boundaries of  B. C. there  is io mi  for  the province  of   Manitoba  with   the- Territories of  Alberta,  Assiniboia and Saskatchewan.    You  kind  friends from the eastern provinces cannot forget   tiie wide  sweep of .magnificent Ontario and the  long   readies of   the  fertile valleys of  tlte Ouher Provinces.     But here in B.  (.'.where   you are  making your hew  home   there might   ho carved out another   Ontario,   Nova    Scotia,    New  Brunswick,   with   room  still   left for  Newfoundland.     We   are pleased to  welcome the thousands of noble people,  who are Hocking across the boundary,  from the great Republic to the'south  of us.     You  do not forget the magnitude  of  the country from which you  have come, but here you need not he  alarmed  that you will be cramped for  hi entiling     space.        B.   O.   contains  enough  territory  to  make the States  ot Maine, New llairrpshite, Vermont.  New  York,   Massachusetts. Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, New  Jersey,   Ohio,   Michigan,  Illinois and  Indiana, while  the provinces of Nova  Scot i.i   and    Prince     Ed wai d   Island  could   be   made   out of what vvas left  over.    Mi'thliiks I hear some Western  American   e\c!aiur,    "That is all very  well for the small Eastern States, hub  iu the   west   to   the soutli of us there  are magnificent distances as well as in  li. C.    In reply we might say that the  Pacific   States   as California, Oregon,  .ind Washington contain 00,000 square  miles less  teiritory than the Western  Province of Canada.    To those of you  who   have   braved   tbe   distance  and  come  from  far .ivv.iy  Europe to hew  out f.jr yourselves homesin the princely   province, you   may remember that  while the area ot  Gei many is 20U,0U0  square   miles,   of   Prance   201,000,  of  Spain   lOS.OOO, of Norway and Sweden  combined  IDS,000,-of  llaly  110,000 of  the   United   Kingdom* 121.000,   while  that   of   British   Columbia  is 385,000  square   miles, or   in other words that  the area of 13. O.'is about equal to that  of   the   United   Kingdom,   Italy and  Swedcrrconibinod.     "What a ten itory  h'ns Cnnndii equal  to about one-twentieth of tlie earth.  But cjiianlily is not everything.  WhnI, about quality:-1 Think of our  mineral resources!,' But who knows  vv hut they are! Although the Atlantic coast has been known for "over 100  years, it is within the last half dozen  years thnt a great city has spuing into  existence in Cape Breton. Vast quantities of "iron ore h ive been discoverd  on the Atlantic coast and Sidney  gives promise io be another Pittsburg.  This is the age of si eel and we rejoice  to Iind that iron has been discovered  in large quantities iu seveial places  throughout the Dominion fiom distant Newfoundland in the east to  Texnda arrd Queen Charlotte Islands  i.i the extreme west.  Tho cuol area of the Dominion is  estimated at 100,000sqir.ne miles. One  s pinre mile of conl has given the Duns-  mtiirs their millions. What must  thoic vast beds yet untouched mean  to the Dominion. It is estimated that  the Crow's Nest coal area is capable of  pi oducing 1,000,000 tons a year for  ."iOOO years. Vast iron deposits and  practically exhauslless beds of coal  spell a word of six letters���������i iches. The  Yukon country tliat a few years ago  wai considered almost valueless, last  year produced i-il2.000,003 worth of  g ild. Canada ranks foui th among the  gold-producing countries of the world.  Her- mineral-output���������fni'-lOOO totaled  S.IJ.OOO.OOO, and yet the pick of the  prospector has barciy scratched her  mountains of mineral.  What wealth of "timber. The Dominion lias the only very large area of  timber in the vvor.d. estimated at  1,000,000 square miles from which we  reaped last year a harvest worth  $SO,000,000.  What lislieries, extending from tlie  famous cod lish banks of Newfound-  laud to the rivers of B. C. teeming  with .salmon and out to the deep  water halibut fishing which is yet in  its infancy. Our lislieries employ an  army of 100,000 men and we gathered  oil" lhe tiviiHiuos of the water last year  a value of $22,000,000. Since cunfeder  ation our fisheries . liave yielded a  value of $:"77.OO0,OOO. We rank 7th  among tho iiiniitime nations of tlie.  world. But Camilla is e.-sentially an  agricultural couniry. Ayh.il are its  possibilities? The answer would require an imagination with wings  bread and swill. . Look at Japan,  largely self-supporting so far* as the  food for hei' immense population of  1.1,01)0.01)0 is concerned. In admiration  vv,> behold the Empire nf the Rising  Huu engaged in deadly conflict with  the colossus of the north, all success  lo her. And yet l|)0 area of thai  sturdy nation i.s bul a little more than  one-third ns large as tjie, single province of II. C. and ahout two-thirds of  Japan ii an uninhabitable- sea "of  uiouiilains.. If Japan can support  such a large population, what are  Canada's possihilities. Twenty-five  years ago the cattle of the west con-  Hinted of 20 head. Now tliere wo  grazing  j*>  its pastures 100,000 cattle,  distinguished American has said that  two-thirds of the total wheat growing  area of North America lies within the  bounds of the Dominion of Canada.  At a moderate estimate our country  can raise SOO.000,000 bushels of wheat  annually,  Let   us   glance for a*moment at the  water   systems   of   the   middle-west.  "Beginning   with   the   noble  St. Lawrence with its broad niouth lying open  to the commerce of Europe we travel  up its ample waters for SOO miles and  then continue  westward  through the  lakes  for   another   thousand.     More  vessel tonnage passes through the Soo  Canals in seven  months during which  they are open, than through the Suez  Canal   iu   n year,   and   this  traffic is  only in its infancy.    In   the   heart  of  the   continent   lies    Lake   AVinnipeg  some   300   niiles   in length.    Flowing  into its north-west angle  is the great  Saskatchewan    river    which,   iu   its  northern   branch,   is     navigable   for  suitable craft lo Edmonton, 1000 iniles  to   the   vvest,    and   on    its   southern  branch to Medicine Hat 1000 niiles  to  the   south-west.     Pouring   into   the  south end of this great lake is the Red  River   of   the   north   with its several  large tributaries,   representing navigable water of>not less than a thousand  miles   in   extent.     Tlio    magnificent  Nelson River  100  miles in length connects  Lake  AA'innipeg with Hudson's  Bay.     Scattered  along   these   rivers  there   are   obstructions,   but   neither  many  in   number nor of formidable  dimensions.     A fraction of the cost of  the_St.   Lawrence   canals  wonld probably be sufiicient to enable freight to  be carried  in unbroken bulk from the  base of the Rockies and cential North  Dakota to the salt waters of Hudson's  Bay.     The   rivers Saskatchewan and  Athabasca are  only 90 miles apart at  Edmonton,   and   if   connected   there  would    be   a    continuous   waterway  from tho Hudson up the Nelson, along  the   Saskatchewan, down   tbe   Athabasca into the great Mackenzie system  and   on into   the   Artie   Ocean, thus  giving     the   long-sought   north-west  passage.      "For  what nation is there  so great."    No wonder Lord Dufferiri  vvas led to exclaim "Canada, the owner of  half ii continent, in  the magnitude of her possessions, in the wealth  of her resources, in the sinews of her  material   might, is   the   peer of  any  power on earth.*'  And now for a moment let ns glance  at Canada's possibilities of national  greatness in the light of population.  Piesent population. What blood runs  red iu their veins. English. Old England marching for it thousand years iu  the van of the world's civilization, has  given us of her lest. Scotland. AA'hat  a limine to conjuio with. Our history  is written large in the names of the  sons of 'the heather. The Emeiald  Isle, her sons as brave in hattie as her  statesmen are wise in counsel. France,  who, notwithstanding that she has  been so heavily handicapped by having' the light of the Reformation so  largely quenched., is yet a mighty  nation, France has given us of her  best and we hail one of her descendants as our Federal Pi ime Minister.  AVhat a foundation is being laid in this  land. A commingling of the great  streams of Anglo Saxon and Celtic  blood.  Canada is today probably the most  temperate country on earth, thanks  lo the earnest efforts of noble heaited  men and women. AA'h'ere can we find  a people more law-abiding? AVe ad-  mii-e the gieat" nation to the south of  us, but we are proud of Canada's  reverence for law. Think of GOO  mounted police patrolling an area as  large as Europe !  Miss Pauline Johnson tells this little  incident,,related_while the._passengers,  on the Imperial Limited were tied up  in the Rockies during a recent  washout:  AAlien the American passengers  learned we were "tied up" in the heart  of the Blackfoots they shuddered���������  lint tliey did not know the meaning of  the scarlet tunic of the N. W.M. Police.  AAre had to tell them that old, old story  we never tire of telling a Yankee, of  the days subsequent to our 1S85 rebellion, when six hundred Canadian Indians invited themselves to sojourn  across the border and found scant  welcome in a country that had, ac-  coiding to the "great white father at  AArashington," "quite enough Indians  of their own." Ottawa and AArashington held a conclave, and arrived at the  decision that "Canada would care for  her own Indians if Yankeeland would  please escort them to the border.'*  Yankeeland did���������gladly.

Many a dying car heard  it nnd was content, a company of  wan nnd wasted women and children  emerging from their damp vaults to  snatch one breath of air in the slackening of lire after sunset, nnd wondering among themselves when would  the relieving force como, heard it  with au incredulous, delirious joy,  soon changed to certainty by tlio  irruption of tho Highland soldiers  among them, nrrd the snatching up  of tho children by their heroic deliverer's, to bo kissed and cried over  in their noble joy at having saved  them from tho fulo of Cawnporc; it  rolled along tiro ranks, and heartened up tli'ose still struggling without  it struck terror to the souls of tho  dusky foe, nnd brought new life and  energy to the exhausted garrison,  who took it up and prolonged the  grand note till it hushed every other  sound. In tho rapid failing' of his  pulses, Philip heard it and rejoiced,  knowing that his life, in- life so  sweet and precious to his youth,  wns not given in vain; hc, too, uttered one exultant cheer with his  last  strength,   something crashed  on  Now    tho battle was at its body.  fiercest,  tho relieving force had been  ., j fighting  all  tiro  long day,  and    had  'to cut   their    way    step   by-step in  despair���������hope of being relieved  by  a  . force they knew to be in the neighborhood, despair of meeting moro  mercy at tho hands of tlieir enemies,  should they yield, than tho tragedy  of Seetapore led them to expect;  for an ominous silence was the sole  intimation thej* had ever had of tho  fate of Cnwnpore; tho defenders  Lucknow  rose on     the 25th,  to    go  lho besiegers, whom   they could   not  dislodge.  Amongst the European infantry  vvas Philip Randal, hardly to be recognized as tho smart, inanely smiling young oflicer of Jessie's daguerreotype; bis face was blackened by  of! smoke and stained with his own  blood,  his  sword  ran  with that     of  through     oue  morc   duy  of  terrible, j the enemy,  his right hand  was    rod  tragic  monotonv,   and  saw  the   ���������sun!nnd   his  sleeve  soaked  with  it,     his  once more turn westward over their  wearied force diminished now by one-  third, while the awful iron tempest  still crashed mercilessly upon their  riddled and half-ruined buildings, and  filled every open, spot with dust.  Night and day those devoted men  had fought and toiled in their, unsheltered intrenchments, scorched by  the fierce summer of India, drenched  by its tropical rains; they buried  their daily tale of dead, tlrey nursed  their sick and wounded, they did all  the ollrces of daily life under an  incessant Tire of musketry, shot and  shell, varied by stink-pots and car-  ���������canes', and only "slackening a while  from time to time to .bo-..renewed  with fiercer rigor. The sick,7 crowded on the? lowest floor of the hospital. were not sccurp from the occasional round shots; the only : really  safe places were damp, dark cellars,  in which some of the���������ladies and children 'were... crowded day and night  among rats and mice, and whore  children rapidly sickened and died,  arrd other children were born. All  the long-, hot day, ollieers and men,  more or less weakened by fever nnd  dysentery, and covered witli boils,  fought; rushing -from battery to battery, because, they .were top tew to  man ail at once; and' at. night, the  exhausted combatants', pincers 'and  men without distinction, save that  oii'rcers worked the hardest, toiled at  burying the unloaded and famished  beasts, the carcases of which bred  pestilence. They could not furnish  fatigue parties strong enough to repair breaches and make countermines: ihey had to grind their own  corn by hand;  they  had not strength  breath came in short gasps, a burning thirst consumed him, his limbs  trembled, and a rod mist swam before Iris failing eyes; with his parched lips compressed and his teeth  clenched, his one hope was that ho  might not fall till Ire reached tho  Residency, if indeed it:'might be  reached after so terrible a. struggle.  Be. had the good fortune to servo  under that bravo and beautiful soul,  who, "irr gratitude for and in admiration of the brilliant deeds of  arms achieved by General Havelock,  cheerfully waived his rank in favor  of that officer"���������tendering his military services to -.Brigadier-General  Hayelock as a volunteer, though officially appointed to the command of  both Havelock and the-.expedition.;.  Philip felt that ..it was irrdeed y an  honor: to servo under two such rare  and chivalrous soldiers, in nn opera-,  lion so fraught with peril and honor  Outram's force never forgot Cawnporc, that word so; ovcr'r-weighed  with agony and infamy, with heroism and cruelty, with : pit3r and horror. Thoy had hot, like Havelock*s  Highlanders, been maddened by tire  sight of the tragic- Becbcegurh, ankle  deep in the blood of Christian women and children, and the', yet . more,  tragic well, over the ghastly contents of which they hnd cried aloud:  brrt lho whole relieving force, as  they hewed! their way through the  living .wall of dark-fneed, white-dressed foes under thc concentrated fire  of the street, trusted that they were  saving the Lucknow garrison from  the fate  of Cuwnpore,  Lucknow was relieved at Inst, with  the loss of over a quarter'of the relieving'-force; and though after tho  first wil and' rapturous emotion of  tho relieved garrison had subsided,  the relief was found to be but a reinforcement, food and quarters for  which could with difiiculty be provided, the sequel that the deed was  worth the terrible cost.  How long Philip lay among the  slain Ire did not know; ho was probably protected from further injury  by falling into one of the trenches  cut across the road to impede tho  progress of the troops; when he regained consciousness ho found himself a prisoner, deprived of his sword  but furnished ?. with tho water for  which he craved with delirious agony; food was given him and  he slept a long sleep, and on waking  found himself not much, worse for  his wounds, which wore not deep,  though their copious bleeding had  helped to exhaust him. As for the  crack on the head from a clubbed  musket, that -had left only a surface'tenderness, tind,.a certain mental  dulness behind; and as he looked  round tho dark chamber in which he  lay7orr a purdah, a sort of thin mattress, ho knew that the honor of  -'death on the battle-field had been  denied him, and that he was probably destined to insult- and ignominy, and th'o. horrors of death by  torture.' Tho cold drops stood on  his brow; on searching his clothes ho  found; that no weapon,: not even a  pen-knife, hail', been left him. His  money was gone, but the ruby fastened into a portion' of his dress liad  not been discovered; Jessie's shattered   pictaro  still   remained.  The poor lad rose and fell on his  knees',, echoing'.'the. prayer which he  afterward found written upon n. wall  in Cawnporc���������"Have mercy..upon us,  and deliver'us not into the hands of  our enemies"���������a prayer so pitiful in  tho light of- after-events. Jinny  Englishmen and women in that awful  year turned in extremity to thc sure  and certain refuge of souls, and  turned not in vain. Frail women  bore witness during the siege of  Lucknow   to     the  strength   procured  time; in all those dark, fierce, tur-  baned faces round him, hc saw  only fronds of cruelty, heathen  fanatics bound by devilish rites  to all iniquity. As tragedy  after tragedy had        reached  his tingling ears, his horror of those  alien Asiatics had grown, till he said  things of them nnd the treatment  due to them which shocked Jessie,  then, nnd himself, irr after-years. He  did not reflect that the revolt was,  after all,'but a military and partial  outbreak; ho had seen nothing of tho  intelligence, tlie culture, the graceful manners of theso interesting and  picturesque peoples; had heard nothing of the magnificent fidelity nnd  noble generosity or" which many of  them gavo proof during the .Mutiny.  Ho did not remember that even the  worst deeds of cruelty wrought upon conquerors of nn ulien race, a-  hated, religion, and n dilferent civilization, were equalled by what the  "most polished people" in Christendom did. to their own countrymen  nnd fellow-Christians in tho French  Revolution; nor did he know how  dreadful some of the English reprisals had  beerr.  One day he forurd himself unbound  in an abandoned house on tlio outskirts of tho city, by tho river,  guarded slightly and carelessly. Presently he discerned from his window  a groat tumult: natives, both sepoys  and civilians, rushing headlong in  wildest panic amid the thunder of a  furious cannonade and crash of the  explosion of an Knglish mine beneath  a  largo  building held   by     the  CROP ROTATION.  This is a subject that is of mucli  importance to tho farmers. AVe are  usually in the habit of thinking of  crop rotation as of quite recent date,  writes Mr.  G.  A.  Wilson.  Crop rotation is by no means of  recent or modern origin, for wc find  in the writings of Onto, Pliny, Columella, and Festus, that it was.practiced at tho time of the Romatucivi-  lization. Their method of rotation  was to grow a grain crop for two  years arrd then let tho ground lie  fallow for a yo.ar. By so doing, tliey  reasoned tliat the land gained a needed rest, whilo tho truth was, that the  year's rest added no fertilizing elements to tiro soil but simply increased tho soluble salts in the soil.  Hut our more   modern   system     of  crop  rotation  dales back to the  recent  or  made necessary by tho methods  of agriculture which then prevailed.  Tho management of the farm was not  in tho harrds of tho individual, but  was under the control of the village.  Kach family was allotted a piece of  land for a single season  upon  which  different depth's and. have a dilferent  solvent action upon the constituents  they reach.  3. That th'o soil is maintained in  good tilth by the addition of humus;  and bacteria which is beneficial to  tho soil and the plant is encouraged.  4. And that weeds are moro easily  eliminated arrd the farm work" distributed more evenly.  Experiments carried on at our experiment stations have showed tliat  wheat and corn require more potash  than oats or barley, and also tliat  clover hoy removes a larger amount  of nitrogen from the soil, but it has  also been proven tlint clover obtains  a larger amount of its nitrogen by  the aid of bacteria,  from  tne air.  Is it, then, advisable to buy our.  nitrogen in fertilizers at the rate of  fourteen cents, per pound when clover  will take it from the thirty-eight tons  of nitrogen that rests over* each acre  of .land in our country? The Minnesota experiment station found that  by introducing a. crop of clover overy  fourth year tlrey could grow us mucli  wheat in the remaining three years  as tliey could  grow  in four yen's of  -H-H-f-f-f-f-f-M-H-H-^f -f-ftH-fc  7ii,r   vl VT   i *,     , roc-'continuous.cropping.

He caught  up a tulwar among tho arms the  soldiers had thrown nway in their  panic nnd made for tho river, unheeded in tho general flight. Seeing  a boat, he sprang into it. pushed off  and floated down stream, for he had  rro oars. Ho saw the English flag  waving still above the battered Residency, which was as fiercely bombarded as ever, though tho besiegers  had been beaten back from the im-  modiaie vicinity of the position. He  let himself borne farther and farther  from them, until tho caprice of thc  current sent hiin ashore some miles  away from tho city, beneath a grove  of mangoes, into the shade and shelter of whicli he was glad to crawl.  The half-closed wound had burst  open again during his flight, hc had  boen unabla to bind it properly;  every moment he grew fainter with  loss of blood beneath tho scorching  sun, until ho sank at last, unconscious,  just within tho grove.  When ho returned to consciousness  dark, turbancd faces were bending  over him, restoratives wero given  him, *liis wound wns bound up, he  was lifted gently irrto a palanquin  well sheltered from tho sun, and  borno away, he knew not whither.  Somo time after darkness had fallen, they reached a smnli town; tho  hearers set down the palanquin beforo an arched-door which opened to  admit them, and Philip presently  found himself in a courtyard stir  rounded by buildings; outsido of  whicli was a verandah lighted by  lamps fronr within arrd partially illumined by tho^ slant rays of thc  moon  from  witlrorrt.  A Hindoo lady dressed in bright  silks, with gold anklets and bangles,  came orrt to welcome and'receive a  mil nnd dignified man in the prime  of life, whom Philip recognized as  having" bound up his wound; men  servants .salaamed, there was much  talking in an unknown tongue, nnd  many arrd strange ceremonies confusing to Philip, Tlie tall Hindoo  having entered thc houso, soon came  back with ashes taken from the altar  upon his brow; and turning to Philip, bowed himself 1o him, touched,  his feet in token of respect, and bid  him welcome in the name of God to  tho hoirse of Gossarnjec B'-'ose.

This was tho crop rotation  that wns practised on the more fertile soils of Europe for centuries. So  thoroughly did this rotation become  established tliat it actually became  an impediment to a more rational  system of agriculture.  It is folly to tall: crop rotation to  a man wiio i.s cultivating a virgin  soil^ for is he not growing good crops  of liny or wheat on thc same field  year- after year? It is true. But let  us see what lie is doing. He is taking from the soil, without replacing  anything in return, the capital Iliat  nature has taken centuries to  thero  FOIl HIS BEXKFIT.  Ho does not stop to consi'der  he is drawing out tho money  nature's bank without giving as  much as a receipt for it.

M'hat means this statement thnt a  soil is "worn or run out.*' Tt i.s simply the loss of one or more essential  plant elements from "the soil below  tho amount needed tp support plant  life successfully. It is surprising to  what extent somo of tlio farmers of  this state continue to crop a field  with tho same kind of a crop year  after year, when we have at our very  door in the eastern states examples  of what has boen the result of such  a system. There may be bought today, by paying the back taxes,  "wornout lands in the east thnt were  onco as fertile lands as we havo in  any of our western states. They wero  abandoned because they ceased to  givo a profit after tho labor and taxes wore paid.  Hut how are we to redeem our  wornout soils or to maintain tho fertility of our richer soils? We answer, by a proper system of rotation  and by returning as far ,as possible  tho plant elements that we remove  from it.

This nitrogen was  lost by the oxidation of the liimius  by denitrilication chemically, b.v windstorms and through the loss of solu-  ablo nitrates by drainage. Tn a rotation of wheat, clover, wheat ami  oats nn average of 178 pounds of  nitrogen per acre was removed annually, yet thero was a gain for four  years over and above this amount of  245 pounds ol" nitrogen. This nitrogen  was gained largely by thc clover' from  the free nitrogen of tho air. In this  rotation not only wero larger crops  grown, but thc nitrogen and humus  contents of the soil was increased.  It has been said that successful  farming is based upon tho conservation of tho organic matter of tho  soil, and tho following out of a good  system of crop rotation is tho ono  method whereby wo can conserve litis  organic matter of the soil. It is  important that wo foster tho humus  of our soils, because in it wc havo  thu principal source of nitrogen in  the soil* also it influences to n marked extent the available potash and  phosphoric acid of the soil. Humus  forming materials, like green manures  and barnyard manure, have thc power, when they decompose in tl\'e soil,  of combining with the onsolunblc potash and phosphoric acid of tho, soil  ancl converting them into forms  which are readily available by plants.  It also aids in the relaxation of soluble  "nitrates and ammonia-phospj'ales.  But the benefits that are to bo derived from humus in the soil cannot  bo measured entirely by its chemical  effect-1:; but what seems to be the  greatest source of benefit, to bc do-  rived from it, is from its pliysicul  efiects upon the soil. A soil that  contains a proper proportion of humus will be more poms, will hold  more cai'illary water, and will average from 2 to ',1 degrees moro in temperature  throughout  Till*: GROWING "SEASON.  Kow it can pio inly bo seen that  there arc only U1.0 ways by which wo  can keep up or add to this humus  content of the soil, namely, by very  heavy manuring, or by using a good  system of crop rotation, in which wo  turn down at least once in every  five year's somo nitrogen crop, such  as clover. This is one of the reasons why alfalfa should never bc  grown extensively in Michigan. It  is not at nil suited to crop rotation,  because of the length ot time it takes  to establish the crop.  Tlio amount of humus added to  our soiLhy a crop of clover or a sod  is even greater than we would . at  first suppose. fitorrs, of Connecticut experiment station, found that a  grass sod three inches high, when  plowed under, returned to tlie soil  8,228 pounds of organic matter  which' contained 00 pounds of nitrogen, 25 pounds of phosphoric acid,  and 5(5 pounds of potash, wliieli at  present prices paid for commercial  fertilizer would be worth' Sl~.'10.  Arrd since a soil's capacity for holding capillary water is increased by  ���������1;*17��������� pounds-, for-ovcry - pound- of-ad���������  ded humus, Ihen tlie capillary water  capacity of this acre would bo increased by 18 tons.  lint the chemical and physical benefits to the soil that are derived from  crop rolnlfon nro not the only  important points to bo considered in  its favor. There is iro better method for eradicating weeds, arrd for  apportioning tho farm labor throughout the growing season than a good  rotation tlrat includes ono lioo crop.  Just as soon as tlio Michigan formers begin to systematize their work  nnrl enrich' their soils with proper ro-  tiiliorrs just so soon will they begin  to grow wheat that will run moro  thnn 17.7 bushels per ,acre, oats 30.5  bushels per acre, and corn 30.0 bushels per acre.  -I*  t  i  ���������*-  b  -*-  THE BOY W'E NEJ5;*>.

Whon tiro boys and girlo of Germany are asked what thoy see in tho  moon thoy answer :���������  "Why a man, of course. Ho was  serrt there for punishment, and must  stand forever with a bundle of sticks  on his hack, because ho was wicked  enough to gather faggots on - Sun-  duy." ������  But tho Chinese children would bo  quito surprised to hear that story.  Thoy would tell you that a rabbit,  and not a man, lives in thc moon.  They aro quite sure about it, because  once, long ngo, n little boy in China  was sent to bed without his supper  because he hud not used chopsticks  properly, and so spilt rice ovor his  clean blouse.  Thon ns he lay in bed with the  moon shining on hinr, and crying because he was so hungry, a tirry hand  touched him and a kind voico said���������  "Hero, littlo boy, is a bowl of rice,  The rabbit in the moon sent it to  you."  Littlo Ah Loo jumped up and* ran  to' the  window.  "Oh," ho cried, "is there a rabbit  in tho moon ?"  "To ho suro," was tho answer.  "Can't you seo him? He is pounding his'rico irr a bowl."  Then little Ah Lee pressed his faco  against the window and looked very  hard.  "I seo him," ho cried joyfully.  "What u. nice, kind rabbit ho must  bo." .     "  Sinco then overy littlo Chinese boy  han been able to sco ���������tho-rabbit, too.  When the littlo Hottentot, the fun-  rfy littlo brown, boy who lives in fnr-  awny Africa, and who greases his  faco instead of washing it, nnd never  combs his hair, asks his mother  about thc moon this is tho story she  tells him :���������  One day the moon said to the hare  ���������Go to the earth and toll the people  that just as I rise again after dying  uwuy so shall they die and again  como to lifo.  But the stupid bare did not carry  the kind message right:- ITc told tho  peoplo that tho moon boasted that  she rose, again, but that they died  forever.  When thc moon heard this sho was  very angry. She took an axe to  cut off the hare's heud, but the axe-  missed and only cut his lip open.  Ever since thon the hare's children  have, a "hare lip."  Then thc pain of the cut mnde tho  haro so wrld that he flew at tho  moon and almost scratched her eyes  out. The black scars on the moon's  face nre the marks .of the hare's  claws.  Quite a different story is told to  tho children of Iceland.  When Jack and Jill fell down tho  hill, they snj', the moon picked them  up. She wiped away Jill's tears  and patched Jack's' crown.' Then,  taking one under each arm, she flew  up to the sky again. " Thoro they  draw water for her, and sometimes  their buckets tilt over and tho water  spills.

It is not possible  yet to indicate what will bo the respective, attitudes of Uie 'European  Towers when tiro time arrives for a  settlement of the Fur Eastern question ot tho closo of tho present war.  That the situation will bo very different from the one prevailing at the  outset of the conflict is already certain. Tho application of this statement is (ptit/; irrespective of the two  belligerents as factors ir> the general  situation.  Tho chief change is in the position  of Germany. .Indications multiply of  the great discomfiture pf German  statesmen over tlie recent developments in international politics. Tho  phrase 'isolation of Germany" has  become a common one in the Franch  nnd British press during the last few  days. It is recognized throughout  Europe that the Kaiser's expected opportunity to profit largely at no expense out of .the trouble of sister nations has been reduced to a small, if  not non-existent, possibility.  GERMANY'S  DISAPPOINTMENT.  goes considerably further. The Anglo-French agreement and the closer  rapprochement between -France and  Italy, which will be strengthened by  President Loubet's visit to Home, is  regarded as a serious menace to German interests in several directions. It  is feared, and with somo reason, that  as soon ns a favorable opportunity-  arises for friendly intervention lo stop  the war it will be French and English, .nnd perhaps American, good offices that will restore peace.  There remains also the possibility,  which the Germans at tho present momont are inclined to exaggerate, that  Groat Britain and Russia may roach  a friendly understanding on several  points whereon an agreement has  long been regarded as Impossible.  The chance of thi.s development would  grow rnpidly if the war should continue along the lino of Japanese success.  * ' *  There are Signs in Russia of rapidly  ONE  THING DONE  WELL  The True  Secret of a "Remarkable  Success.

A. Schafer : Tho patient is  laid in a prono position, preferably  on the ground, with n thick folded  garment, underneath the chest, and  the arms forward. Tho operator  puts himself athwart tho subject,  facing his head, and kneeling on one  knee, with tho other knee and hip  flexed, and places his hands on each  sido ovcr the lower part of the back  of tho chest. * He then slowly  throws tho weight of his body forward to bear on his own arms, nnd  thus-presses on the thorax of the  subject and forces air orrt of tho  lungs.  ITo thon gradually relaxes the  pressure by bringing his own body  up again"'to a more erect position,  but without moving the hands; as  ho docs-this nir.'is drawn by elastic  reaction of the' chest walls into tho  lungs.. >This process is repeated're-  gualrly not less often than twelve  times or moro often than fifteen  ^imes a minute. By this means it  Is easily possible in nn average man  to effect such an amount of respiration us Will bo enough fo maintain  complete aeration of thc blood. Thc  advantages of this method nre :  Ease of manipulation, simplicity,  impossibility of air passages being  blocked by falling bnck of the' tongue,, nnd facilitating escape of wut-  tr from lhem.

The  better class Coreans wear arr attire  tho immaculate cleanliness of which  is probably unexcelled anywhere ' on  eartli. It. is certainly the quaintest  in the Orient, and as its owner invariably swings along with a supercilious swagger, as if ho and ho alone  were the owner of tho street aud all  he surveyed besides, tho incongruity  of his manly gait,- contrasted with  his exceedingly effeminate dre'e, is a  thing which must bo seer, to be thoroughly appreciated.  He is clothed in whito from head to  foot, the whito being sometimes varied by, cream colored silk;'every garment being of spotless cleanliness. He  wears- tho baggiest 'of .baggy breeches,  tightened just' above ,-the p**'''*������r", . and  his" padded white-socks are partially,  enclosed���������in���������-, whltc-aiid -black��������� -cloth1  sandals. Uo wears in summer a silk  or grass cloth coat of gauzy texture,  which is tightened under the armpits  and spreads loosely from there downwards, and being stiffly laundered;  sticks out-'in a ridiculous jminner' all  round his "logs liko the starched frock  of a littlo child.  On his head he wears a hat, not  unlike tiiat formerly worn by Welsh  lisherwomen,. only tho crown is not  so high- The ���������hat is black .and glossy, and a close inspection of that of  a yang-bnn (aristocrat) showed that  it was made of finely woven" silk and  bamboo irr an open mesh that resembled crinoline, while, those worn by  the less prosperous aro made of horsehair. Tho truncated rone does not  fit thc head, but perches,jauntily on  top of it. As its base is a round  brim aboirt four inches wide, and .tho  wholo is kept in place by a black cord,  or band tied under the chin. The  ofRVe of this peculiar capillary attire  is not alone to protect tha head front  tho weather', but to form a receptacle  for an equally curiously shaped skullcap', which in turn contains thc top-  kjiot. This hat is worn on all 'occasions, both on tho street and in  tho house, and its gauzy construction  enables the topknot to be plainly  seen within  its airy wnlls.

Reighley, one of our old time  bachelors gave the Revelstoke Aerie  of Eagles an opportunity to visit him,  tbe happy event being his taking unto  himself a wife, a Mrs. Miller from  Spokane. Jim's four acre lawn was  alive with a happy crowd and after  formal introduction to the bride set  out to enjoy themselves. ��������� Refreshments were served b,v Mrs. Reighley.  Mr. Reighley made a very neat speech,  the guests sang "For he's a jollv good  fellow," and "God Save the King."  after which they bade the happy  couple "Good-night."  A quiet wedding took place at S:30  this morning at the Presbyterian  Manse, Rev.'W. C. Calder officiating,  the principals being Mr. Joseph Henderson, the well known C. P. R.- engineer of Field, B. C. and Miss Annie  McAleese of Revelstoke. Miss Bell  assited the bride through the ceremony, while Mi*. Alex. McLeod performed a similar service for the groom.  The bride was becomingly attired in  cream silk and carried - ahandsome  boquet of roses. .rThe happy couple  left this morning'for Halcyon where  they will spend their .honeymoon and  will afterwards make their home at  Field. The Herald join's with the  many frinds of the young couple in  wishing them a successful and happy  married life. *.-"  ���������r f "v>  STRAWBERRIES  $2.25 Crate of 24  Boxes  FRESH BUTTER  Nice First Class Fresh  Butter in One Pound Prints  Only 22^c. per lb  SEND YOUR ORDERS  ���������TO���������  S.
