HUME ^t (0, Limited  Department Store-  LABOR DAY  CELEBRATION  Revelstoke's Second Annual  Sports ��������� Lacrosse Match-  Firemen's Races, Athletic  Sports, Horse Races.  Revelstoke's second annual Liihcn-  Day celebratson passed oil'successfully  without 11 hitch. Monday morning u  large crowd assembled at the depot to  welcome the lacrosse boys from Vancouver, the Independent band, was in  attendance and played the visitors  into town. The programme of the  day was opened by a giand parade,  which formed at the city hall and  consisted of the Independent band, the  local union of I. A. of JM., attired in  overalls and smocks, with a, banner  carried by two of their number representing "John Biill"'djnd Uncle Sam,"  No. 1. Fire Brigade, the local Blacksmiths Union, \vearing white aprons  and bearing models representative of  their calling, next came the Journeymen Tailors, followed by the Boilermakers Union in- blue jeans and  sinocks.-No. 2 Fire. Brigade bringing  up the rear. Thc; route of the parade  was up McKenzie Ave., along Thhd  street, down to First along First to  Government Road, down Government  Road to Third street and on down  around Front street and back up  Douglas street and on up Second street  to the.city hall, where the procession  disbanded.  .JVhile the parade was in progress,  the Civilian Rifle Association shoot  and Guii Club tournament were taking  place, reports of which appear else-  ��������� wheie.  LACROSSE MATCH  The principal feature of the celebration was tbe lacrosse game  between  Vancouver  and,: Revelstoke, ."������������������ and  it  certainly was a warm one. ���������--Lucky  it  was for Nelson  that they .decided  to  celebrate Labor Day at home, for they  would    assuredly    have   gone   down  befoie the   magnificent   game   which  was put up by the'home tenm.     As it  wa--,   ifc   kept .the  Vancouver    team  thinking and working hard to  defend  their title ascv.ampions of the province.  It vvas'anybody's game till the whistle  blew_and.it was with a sigh of relief  that the_vi.sitors heard.the_call of time  TK5 '.team   which���������represented'-Vancouver hereon Labor Day   was; with  the exception of three' men,  tho regular team which represents' th.il city in  the senior games on  the  coa?t.    The  game was witnessed by   a   huge   and  enthusiastic crowd who littlo expected  to see such an exhibition, of Canada's  national game, as the general opinion  was that in tackling Vancouver,  Revelstoke was   undertaking   too   much.  The game was called at 2 o'clock and  the teams lined irp as follows:  Vancouver Revelstoke  goal  Ritchie.........................Dunne  point  jUcConachy.. Hyatt  cover point  Carter Rennie  1st defence  Morrison Ritchie  2nd defence  Mattison Edwards  3rd defence  Cameron.,....... ii......... ..Knight  centre  Payne......'.............. McCullough  3rd home  Douglas    ' Barber  2nd home  Conway ��������� Saunders  1st home  C\6.'. Latham  outside home  R. Cameron ......;..... ..Watson  inside home  McLaughlin _ _._ArmsJ_rong  Held captains  J. Haw mnn..........D. G.  McKenzie  .  Dr. Sutherland  Referee.  McCullough drew the ball in the  face oft" and it quickly travelled to  Vancouver territory' where several  shots, were made on the goal, all however proving wide, the boys seemingly  being a little too anxious to score to  make their work elfective. Carter,  relieved for Vancouver and witb some  clever combination, plav was 'transferred to Revelstoke's goal, Imt Dunne  was on hand and stopped a hot one.  Play was of a gi ve nnd take character  then for a time, Douglas finally-  secured the ball passing to Oni wny,  who passed to Cao, who scored the  first goal for Vancouver. . ln the face  off McCullough again secured the bull  but lost it to Cameron, who passed" it  down the line and after some.; clever  3tick handling the visitors secured  another goal, R. Cameron doing the  ���������trick. No further scoring was done  in tlie first quarter, which ended with  the score 2 to 0 in favor of Vancouver.  Nothing daunted Revelstoke went  at it in the second quarter and considerable improvement was noticed in  their play, as tbey kept a closer watch  on their check������������������-. Vancouver, however  were also working hard and taking no  chances, the'r defence playing an  almost perfect game. After some  give and take play, Douglas put on  another, one for'Vancouvir. It was  Revelstoke's turn next, McCullough  s'c.:ring the ball passing to Barber,  to Saunders, to Latham who scored  amid great cheering. Cao retaliated  by adding another for Van'cover. On  [resuming play, Caoand Hyatt got into  a ni'x up and were 'sent to the fence  for rive minutes. In about, two minutes  muie Douglas added a fifth^for Vancouver, Th'ngs leo'ied blue for the  home team, bnt they never let up and  shortly before time was called Latham  put in a second one for Revelstoke,  which left the score at half time, Vancouver 5, Revelstoke 2.  The third quarter was Revelstoke's  | all the way, the home team outplaying  A Monster Caribou.  On Wednesday Cunt. Forslund of  the s. s. Revelstoke sliot a caribou in  the Columbia river at Rocky Point.  It is claimed by those who have seen  the carcass to be the largest ever shot  in this district. While the s. s. Revelstoke was going up to Downie Creek  ou her trip Wednesday Capt. Forslund observed from the pilot house a  caribou swimming tbe river, aiid taking his gun succecdod in shooting the  animal in the forehead, and wounding  it. The infuriated animal, maddened  with pain, made a charge at the boat  when another shot from the captain's  gun entered near the shoulder and  disposed of it. With the assistance of  the crew dipt. Fbrslund succeeded in  getting tbe animal on hoard and  brought it to the cily wheie it has  lieen examined by a large number of  citizens. Tho antlers are very largo  and thc animal is supposed to be about  12 years of age. It is likely that Capt.  Forslund will have the head mounted  although the while skin and head may  be sent on to the government museum  at Victoria where it will be mounted  life size. While the surrounding  districts are advertising for tourist  trade and hunting parties the Herald  believes there is no district in British  Columbia that can olfer more in  grandeur of scenery than the districts  surrounding Revelstoke and the Big  Bend district to the north of lis, nor  can a field for sport and thc hunting  of big game be found to excel, the Big  Bend district.  the visitors at everyjpoint. showing a  combination and spewl which completely buttled their opponents, resulting in a third goalj-being added by  .McCullough amid tumultuous cheering. By this-limp';the game was  becoming very fast .^Vancouver evidently awaking, to the'fact that they  had no snap, vainly endeavored to stop  the rush. Quick/and;! clean combination did the trick anil excitement ran  high when Latham rnude it four goals  for Revelstoke..,.'Jfjjie crowd yelled  itself hoarse, uever'jwas such excitement witnessed at apy sport in Revelstoke and the third;' quarter ended  with the score.5 to-t'.in favor of Vancouver.^ ���������    i   %  The last quaiter "was the hardest  fought of tho game iiid although the  home team had a little the best of it  keeping the ball well-up in Vancouver  territory, tbey failefrto beat Ritchie,  Vancouver's custodian, who certainly  played the game of His' life and stopped  shot after shot and sliut for his magnificent defence .Vancouver would  have gone down to.fflefoat. The best  of feeling prevailed^ throughout the  game and Revelstoke has every reasoii.  to be proud of the .showing made by'  he.r boys against thfe'premior team of  the province. The gkme will no doubt  serve to place the Revelstoke lacrosse  team among the 'irlfet in' B. Oi and  next season the coalt teams will have  the interior to reckon with before they  can lay claim to thejbhainpionship.  Dr. Sutherland..jnade an emcent  referee and gave' ehtire satisfaction.  The visitors werehighly pleased at the  treatment aceorded'.theni during their  short stay in the tiity aifd returned  home on No. 1 Tuesday morning.

Next, came the most exciting event  of tho afternoon viz. the-vfug-of-war,  teams being euteied fiom the City, C.  P. R. and Big Eddy Mill. The first  pull was between the City and tire  railw.iy men aud it proved a hard  struggle, the former proving victorious  after a long pull and a strong pull.

Considerable disappointment was  experienced by_the_non-iurival of the  fireworks which were delayed owing  to"iv break down of tiio car which they  were in at Kamloops and which  did not arrive in the city till 4 o'clock  Thursday morning. Tlie display took  place last night however and the  public were well recompensed for their  long wait lry the brilliancy of the  demonstration. The band was in attendance und enlivened the proceedings with a number of selections.  Kuropatkin's Official Report  Just Received Announces  Arrival of Army at Mukden  Without the Loss of a Gun  London, Sept. 8.���������The trend of the  view of the morning newspapers on  the war in the far East is that Gen.  Kuropatkin's arrival at Mukden does  not solve the problem of his retreat.  "Where will Kuropatkin stop?" is  wha t is asked here.  St. Petersburg, Sept, S.���������A despatch  from General Kuropatkin, timed 0.30  o'clock yesterday evening, was received later in the day. He reports  that Geneva! Kuroki's army was about  27 miles eastward of the railroad and  that General Oku's army was 20 miles  westward of tho railroad. The general  stall' expects that a big battle will be  fought.'  St. Petersburg, Sept. 8.���������0.25 p.m.���������  General.'Kuropatkin's official report,  sent from Mukdeu during the evening  of yesterday, announcing that the  whole of his army had arrived at  'Mukden and-was talcing up'a position  around the city, and adding that the  army had not lost a gun during the  retreat, relieved the public anxiety  and put an end to the many alarmist  reports which had been 'current here.  ��������� *  Gun Club Tournament.  The Gun. Club Shoot on Labor Day  was a pronounced success. Shooting  started promptly at 10 a.m. with a big  attendance. Teams from Kamloops,  Ashcroft and Shuswap being present.

Was   the   Serio-Comic   Drama  Production " Dick Turpin and  Tom King." by the Amateur  Dramatic Club Monday Night.  _, A bumper house greeted the initial  performance of the Revelstoke Amateur Dramatic Club on Monday evening in the Opera House. On this  occasion a double bill was presented,  opening with a laughable one-act farce  comedy "Slasher and Crasher." The  principal roles in the f.uce Sampson  Slasher and Cristopher. Crasher were  cleverly played by J. XV. Chilton and  W. Henry. W. A. Chambers as  Lieut. Brown, n, very English dude  officer, und It.-J. Taggart as Benjamin  Blowhard, a retiiecl army man, weie  also, good. Miss F. Fraser, as Dinah  Bl.ijvhaul, a maiden lady, in love with  Crasher, and Mis^^-T. 11. Dunne as  Rosa' a young ..huly in lovt������ wilh  Slasher played their respective parts  with credit. It was one continuous  laugh from 'beginning to end and.,put  the audience in good humor for the  serio-comic ditimn. which followed,  "Dick ' Turpin - and Tom King."  Although comprising only two acts,  these were divided into niiieVdift'cre'iit  scones, the scenery for which was the  work of T.'II. Dunne, and executed iii  that gentleman's truly artistic manner, the principal scenes being the  "Village of Greenfield" and the wood  scene, drawing forth well merited  praise from the large audience. Dick  Turpin aad Tom King, knights of the  road, were cleverly portrayed by W.  Henry and XV. A. Chambers, showing  careful training and a thorough  understanding of their respective  parts. Squire Whim ey, a gouty old  justice, was well represented by W.A.  Stuidy, while Jacky Goosegieen, a  country bumpkin, was played by R.  H. Sawyer, in that gentleman's usual  realistic manner, creating much  merriment' and applause among the  audience. J. XV. Chilton as Fif/.foozle,  cockney tourist, was extremely good.  Miss Mae Corley as 'Mury Watson, in  love with' Dick Turpin, was 'much  admired and played the part to perfection, and Jlrs.' T. 1:1. Dunne as  Betty Slititkins, Squire Whimscy/s  servant,   was  also . good.     The   cos  tumes and make-ups of the different  chai acters were splendid and reflected  credit bii-.thc management of the Club. /  During the interval between the farce  and tlie drama W.M. Lawrence, president of the Dramatic Club, in a few  well chosen words explained the  formation and objects of the Club and  thanked the hirge audience for . their  attendance and appreciation of the  club's elforts. At the conclusion of  the performance a social dance was  held, music for which was furnished  by the Independent Band.  Arrangements are now being made  by, the club for the production of Rob  R'oy on St. Andrew's night, Nov. 30th,  of which further particulars will bo  given later. k  Farewell Supper.   - -  Mr. B.

Slake a  rosette of blue, pink nnd black baby  ribbon velvet, and add, when so desired as a corsage garniture, tucking the strands falling from it into  the belt.  A pearl or coral dog collar will bc  a pretty finish for the neck, whilst,  for day wear, a band of black- velvet  may be substituted, nnd, of course,  black velvet instead of the colored  th'rcadings will be in better taste.  SUPERSTITIOUS raBLERS!,/01���������8 of the Turf M0  WAISTS AND BLOUSES.  Many women are still hunting for  novelties for shirt waists aud fancy  blouses. Shirt-waist suits in the  better materials have been in vogue  only two or three years, and early in  the'spring it was suggested tluit  they might not be so popular this  season, but thej- arc quite the smartest thing. The simpler stylo of  shirt-waist suit is disappearing, and  the very elaborate take the lead.  Vcnrs ago a morning gown of silk  would have been regarded ns extravagant. Now it is so cheap that it  is 'within the reach' of almost every  women. Never before has taffeta  had such a sale, and probably it will  still hold first place among thc silks  next fall.  Braided taffetas, embroidered pongees and embroidered lines nro supplanting plain materials for shirtwaist suits, except in the case of  strictly tailored gowns. Last season white linen was regarded tho  smartest, but this year colored linens are becoming popular nnd fashionable. They do not soil so easily,  nnd if care is taken can be worn  throughout the season without being  cleansed. Many of thc linens and  muslins arc made up just ns elnbor-  aielv and expensively as some of tho  silks.  FAVOIUTE  GOWNS.  The gray voile and crepe dc chine  gowns are becoming more and more  a favorite. These costumes arc  heavily trimmed, dyed lace the ex-  net shade, though not new, being  especially pretty.'

The ivory marble was sent spinning  round the roulette wheel, there wns a  moment of suspense, and then thu  croupier announced the winning number���������thirteen. Hut whnt is fnr more  extraordinary, the same number came  up three times in succession. That  fly cost tlio Casino $25,000.  It is very unusual for colored tourists to be iii the neighborhood of this  city of riches nnd ruin, and, when on  hi.s way from Mbntb'nc to If on to Carlo  there jumped into liis compartment  five negroes, nil Englishman, well  Known nt the gambling tables, saw  fortune in tho incident.  ���������Upon reaching Monte Carlo lie nt  once staked five louis (about $23.25  altogether) on black at tho fifth table,  leaving liis money on for a run of  five. As luck'would liave it,, his inspiration  CAME OUT THUMFS.  Five times black turned up, enriching  him to the extent of SO^O.  Thero are very few habitual gamblers wiio do not possess some talisman or charm. Yet one seldom hears  of any great 'coup which can bc traced directly to some object significant  of fortune. There nro one or two exceptions,  however.  A small piece of common coal is  tho mucli cherished possession of the  owner of a large estate in Scotland.-  Though' now immensely wealthy, at  one period of his lifo ho would not  have parted witli this piece of coal  for a big sum of money. And for  this good reason.  A regular visitor to Monte Carlo  infatuated with tho gambler's passion,  ho liad found luck entirely against  him. Again anil again he lost till  hc wns nil but ruined. Ono evening,  whilst wandering, morose and despairing, along tlie nuny, he passed  a barge nt that moment being unloaded of its coal. As hc walked under the swinging crane n piece of tho  shiny mineral fell from the. carrying  bucket into the gambler's cont pocket.  Hero was a lucky omen if you like.  "Raising all tho money he could, he  determined to stake it all on a last  chance. When hu left thc tables in  tho early, morning he liad over 30,000  francs ($6,000) in his possession���������  HIS NIGHT'S EARNINGS.  From that time ho never left tho  gaming tables except.as a winner;  sometimes of a small amount, more  often of a large. Even to-day the  piece of lucky coal accompanies him  every whore.  Quito as lucky for a time, though  somewhat gruesome, was tho charm  carried as a "brooch by a well-known  actress. It was tho right forefinger  bone of a man''who was the seventh:  son o,f a seventh  son.    This  she.    as- ;  almost  superstitious as gamblers. Dreams  of horses are csiiccially considered  precursors of fortune. Ono such  dream was responsible for tho winning of pots of monoy. Though' tho  incident happened so long ago ns  1SS1, it is still remembered in racing  circles In America.  A certain Frank Snyder, a well-  known New York racing man, 'dreamt  that a horse named Parolo would win  the  LIVERPOOL,  SPRINT.   CUF,  with Adamite, another horso, second;  but that, at the entrance to tho  stretch, I'tirolo would cross Adamite,  and ii claim for foul being made and  allowed, Adamite would bo given the  pur.se.  At the timu Snyder told his dream  to a ciri-le of friends, Parole, an American horse, had not even been embarked for England, and as for Adamite, there was no such liorse entered for the race. There w.ns an Advance, however, to bo ridden by tho  then world-famous Fred Archer, - and  this horso was accepted by thoso who  know .Snyder as the otto he had  dreamt of.  On tliu day of the race, excitement  in Now York Turf circles wa.s intense,  but when tho cnbio was received giving details of tlio race exactly as  dreamt by Snyder, the fortunate backers of Advance could scarcely restrain  themselves. Though tlio dreamer  himself had not betted a penny on the  race, quite a crowd had staked their  monoy.  It was a dream, too, that yielded  no less than $2-1,000 about a year  ago to a lucky little Italian boy  named Luigi Ti'ranti. This youngster,  employed as errand boy in a home  for lost children in Rome, liad a  dream in which four numbers frequently occurred. So impressed was he by  his dream that lie put aside his scanty  savings till thoy had reached throe  dollars, then ho invested tlio whole  in lottery ticliots bearing  THE MAGIC NUMBERS.  A fow months afterwards lie was announced tho winner of the enormous  sum  mentioned.  It must bo admitted, however, that  tlio greater number of'fortune-winning  dreams have not this fine regard for  superstitious feeling. One dream, indeed, whicli eventually camo true, had  a goodly portion of irony in it.  About ton years ago a Vienna merchant dreamt several times of a certain number. Tlio recurrence" of the  number seemed to him an omen of  fortune, and ho forthwith purchased a  THE PUSTIASTER  mm EMPHATIC  BELIEVES        DODD'S      KIDNEY  PILLS  THE RIGHT MEDICINE  FOR   KIDNEY TROUBLE.

The     Exhibition    is Expected    to  Break  all  Previous  Records.  It is, of course, impossible to attempt witli any degree of accuracy to  predict the number of visitors that  will pass through tho turnstiles at St.  Louis; but experience in matters dealing with exhibitions shows that the  aggregate number of visitors that  may be expected should bo between  fifteen and eighteen times tlio total  population of tho city in which it is  Held. Tn 1900 the ratio at tho Paris  Exhibition amounted to the population of that city multiplied by eighteen; at ������������������ .Wolverhampton and Chicago  in 1893 tho ratio was about fifteen;  while at Glasgow it was sixteen.  Taking tho highest of theso figures,  and applying it to the population of  St. Louis, wliich is th'o fourth largest  city In tho States, it i.s found that  tho expected crowd should number  thirteen and a half millions, wliich  would place it a trifle higher than  the position occupied by tho Glasgow  show of 1901.

Those  who have face ache should prove it  Tor themselves by sifting in a sunny  window, whore the warmth fulls full  on tho check. For nervous debility  and insomnia the treatment of all  others is rest in sunshine. There is  no tonic liko it, provided the good  effects are not. neutralized by ill feeding. To restore a withered arm, a  palsied or rheumatic limb, or to  bring a case of nervous prostration  up speedily, a most efficient part of  tho treatment would bo to expose  the limb or the person to as many  hours of direct sunlight as the day  would afford. With weak lungs let  the sun fall full on the chest for  hours. For the chilliness which  causes blue hands and bad color resort to the sun; let it almost blister  the skin, and tho circulation will answer the attraction.

Th'o story was begun In boredom,  weariness of soul, and a fine distutse  for  life���������becuuso  of  a     girl.   It  wus  ��������� ended in exaltation, a sudden s'purt  of fervor, und a glowing lovo ol* nil  the world. That, also, wns because  of a girl, but the two girls wore  us different ns the beginning nnd the  end of Cullibort's story.  The first girl forced him into  writing it, because, nftor a twelvemonth of heated devotion on his  part, and . tacit iicceptnncc on hors,  she discovered one dny that she did  not love liim. .One must do something to 'discourage thought in such  ���������cases, und so Cuthbert began the  story.  ITe made his heroine blonde and  ctK'ly-h'nired, with a trace of the elusive flirt, in order that he might th'o  more readily forget the dark, thoroughbred beauty, to which his acquaintance with the first girl hud ac-  ��������� customed him.-  He had written stories before���������a  .great many, it; fact���������and some had  prospered, aud some luul not���������notably. He was the son ol n man of  wealth', so that Die nccoptanco of his  stories by thc magazines wns a matter of artistic ambition, not of  brea d-a nd-butt cr.  He -wrote rnth'er steadily on tho  new story, chiefly because lie hoped  the girl would hear of it nnd bo  sorry.  Later, something of tho writing-  fever got into his veins, and ho  would doublcss have gone on to lho  ���������end in real interest, and honest effort  but. that the other girl appeared upon tho scene, and effort flared into  ���������energy, interest into  inspiration.  lie met her at th'o studio of a  friend, where ho had gone to sco  about the illustrations for a recently  "finished work, nnd his lirst thought  was thnt ho had seen hcr beforo: his  second, tlint Iio had unwittingly  written her into the story, for there  were all his heroine's traits. There  wns the pnle hair, with a glint of  copper in the waving of it, baby  :inouth, dimpled chin, and evon tho  ���������elusive flirt, ns evidenced by a pair  of sleepy-lidded eyes���������brown, where  one might naturally have expected  blue. Culhbort succumbed on tlio  instant.  He thought lier a professional mo-  ���������del, bat ventured only the most for-  }nal politeness; and discovered afterwards, as a reward of virtue, that  . she was tho sister of his friend's betrothed, and tliat she was sitting for  'hev portrait.  One afternoon lior horse lost a slioo  ��������� in the Park, and though thc groom,  'hurrying up from his respectful post  ~in the rear, reached lior in loss than  ���������a moment, Culhbort, strolling down  "the walk, was before him..  "It is too bad," he said sympathetically, "Hint your afternoon should  be  spoiled.'*  "Hut it isn't," she protested, with"  -something audacious in the movement of her lazy eyelids. "I don't  ���������enre so much for riding; and you'll  take  me homo,  won't you?"  Cuthbert did not trust liiniself to  speak. He knew what he would  have made his hero do in such' a  ���������moment, but tlie groom wus waiting  ���������ancl  tho  conventionalities.  He dismissed -the first Willi a. few  ���������curl directions: the second with a  masterful glance ut the girl, and a  wave o'" his stick at a passing cab.  "Without a clia'peron?" sho questioned,   witli  timid   archness.  Cuthbert helped hor in, followed  her, and closed the door.  "You can't walk homo in your habit," lie snid; "aiid it would b_c_ too  conspicuous in an omnibus, Wliat  else  could you  do?"  "Yc-es," she agreed, in the most  tantalising drawl; "and you are  'warranted harmless,' 1 suppose, so  it really doesn't, matter."  Now, the most retiring man in the  ��������� world will resent being told that ho  is "harmless." . Possibly the girl  knew this. Looking at hcr lilllo  dimpled chin, you would have said  sho did not; but, looking at hcr hali"-  -rlosod-eycsr"with'-t hat-veiled���������audacity lurking somewhere in tlie drooping of lho lids, you would liave said  s'he did. At all event./, it is more  possible that she was not entirely  surprised when Cuthbert kissed lior,  which' lie did nt once.  "Afterwards ho proposed.

It i.s interesting to nolo that his  chief regret during this tlmo was for  ever having met l.ho fecund girl, not  for the Idler tho first liad written  him. It-was in him lo tear up Uio  completed story tlirough' those distressful hours; but ho restrained the  desiro, and gained by the restraint.

After a very littlo hesitation '-Ko  declined lier invitation, with a plea  of a previous engagement; and then,  in nn ecstatic note to the first girl,  proceeded to make tliat engagement  real,   if  not  previous.

The Russians know it,  say the Singapore Straits Budget,  but cannot prevent it, for thoro is  absolutely no telling a Japanese  from a Chinese if made up aiike, and  the question cannot bc solved by  excluding all, for the Russians .cannot get along without thc Chinese.  The British in India without any  Hindoos would not bo more helpless.

Tho peasantry do not as a rule,  betray them. for several reasons.  First, from1 the fear of vc-ngeniice;  secondly, because the Hung-hu-tze ra-  tlior follow tho style of old Robin  Hood in posing us friends of thc  [ioor (ns n matter of policy): and  finally, because the Cossacks themselves aro worse brigands thnn the  Iluug-hu-tzo.

It was    impossible, lo extract any  Every torpedo is practically a  ���������mall submarine boat, in which automatic doviccs roplaco tho crow. Tho  wholo idea of tho fish torpedo was  born out of the earliest submarines,  and it is, in a sense, a development  of tho submarine born too soon.  Tho gyroscopo is the twentieth century contribution to torpedo efficiency. Liko most great inventions, it  is based on tho simplest of facts���������tho  tendency of u heavy wheel when spun  to remain spinning in a certain  plane. It Is mado uso of lo keep tho  torpedo sloady on its course. Anything thnt tends to dell ict the torpedo comes into conflict witli tho  tendency of tho gyroscopo. In the old  days, before "gyros" existed, ono  thousand yards was tho maximum  range ut which a torpedo could bo  fired.. There wns no difiiculty in  making a torpedo go further, but  there was no means of insuring  whero it went to when its first power  was spent nnd its. main energy in any  direction reduced. With tho "gyro"  hits have often been mado at ranges  of a mile, and a mile and a half has  nlso bcon reached. Two miles also  s no longer a dream, and, experimentally, a torpedo going very slowly hus been mado to travel ten miles  in  a  tolerably straight  line.  SPEED  TROUBLE  It is the knowledge of facts liko  this that leads peoplo to credit tho  torpedo with undue powers. Thero  are two big things, however, against  torpedoes. One is the speed trouble.  A modern torpedo will go half a mile  in a minute, but it will not go a  mile in two minutes. It will, instead, require from three to four  minutes, and to go 3,000 yards���������that  is, a mile and a half���������at least six  minutes and probably seven. Thus  lho speed .decreases till to travel ten  miles a torpodo requires something  liko an hour and a half. Its power  is limited; its air can drive it very  fast for a short distance; if it is to  go a long way its air must be economized and speed, reduced.  One may aim a torpedo with tolerable certainty at a thousand, yards���������  a little moro than half a mile���������for it  is not difficult to calculate whore an  enemy in motion will bo a minuto  hence. To calculate threo or four  minutes ahead is far less, easy, whilo  for any longer peripd pure chance  alono can enter. Of course, whon tho  enemy's ships aro stationary,' as the  Russian ships were at-Port Arthur,  it is quite another affair, and tho  Japanese could have hit them from  almost  any  distance.       Ono  or  two  admission that this man had been a  torpedoes      might    miss,-  but' a fair  bandit.      He  had  seen  the Hung-h'u-1 proportion of hits could bo regarded  tzo, as every one had who travelled  say ho had been ono of them. Hc  said, however, that there was no  real secret about .Japanese being  ���������imong them; it was obviously in tho  nature of things, and need not be  denied.  He said tlio bandits .wore quiet at  present, for several reasons. The  bandits had no concerted plans nor  settled policy. Somo of the leaders  of bauds wero meeting secretly to  discuss whether any combined movement could be organized in tlie summer and aulumn, when farm work  would again be slack and recruits  robber bands would bo plentiful. Probably something could be arranged,  but not what the outer world seemed  to think; not the formation of a  grand army of national liberation,  nor any such ambitious thing.  Tho Hung-hu-tze were chiefly mon  of no very high motives. Thej' were  malcontents ne'er-do-weels or escaped criminals, Chinese, Manchu, Mongol, Ordos, Eleuts, Burials and even  a few- Russians, fugitives _from the  Siberian prisons. Most" of thnm  liad no aspirations or thoughts beyond mere self-preservation and tlie  need of daily bread. Their motives  were almost entirely of the most sordid, and political questions or national ' issues never -entered their  heads, except in so far as they might  directly affect the bandit business.  They look to tlio business  FOR_A���������LI\T2*anOOD"  Tho stories about tho Hung-hu-tze  being in the pay of Japan were absurd; it was plain that there was no  waj- lo convey any pay to them, nor  I nny means to guarantee that the pay  would bo earned.  Airy man who might become a  member of a ba:id might in time  come to innuonr-e the other members  of that band in nry desired dive.Jlion  that was all that cculd be done, and  it could not amount tn :n;icH. Still,  it might bc worked up into a force  with some cohesion in a few months;  and if tliey could show a few successes every Chinaman in Mancliuria  would ber ready to Join tho winning  side. Tliat sort of thing, however,  counted for nothing, because what  wns wanted was a body of men willing lo harass the Russians without  waiting for tliem'to be already losing. Of such men-th'e numbers possible to raise were small, comparatively. -But th'ey were good. With  a liitle instruction they mndo distinctly better soldiers in every way  than the Russians, whether Cossacks  or  others.  My informant', while denying tliat  lie ever witnessed an engagement between Hung-hu-tze and Cossacks,  stated tliat on several occasions the  bandits had defeated a superior number of Russians. The latter usually  allowed themselpos to be outwitted  and neglected the most ordinary precautions.  as a certainly. - Tho trouble is that  such actuation was unusual���������never  to bo expected in war, never to be  expected again, oven with-so bad an  admiral as tho Russian Admiral  Stark. '    '  FALSE  LEADER.  Thc second count against the torpedo is a less known ono. It is that  the virtues of the gyroscope can  most easily become vices. A little  careless handling, a littlo grit in the  bearings, and tho gyroscope will not  revolve in its proper plane. It "will  revolve" in another, and torpedoes in  which this has happened have been  known to circle and return liko a  boomerang lo tho ship thnt fired  them. It is a danger that has carefully to be guarded against. Apart  from this the "gyro" is apt to develop unexpected eccentricities, and  in general it is nowhere alongside  the gun in accuracy.  Tho torpedo is aimed by means of  an instrument called the "director."  This is so devised that it can be sot  for Ihe known sliced of the ship firing and the guessed-at speed of lhe  enemy. Things aro timed so thaL  the enemy and the torpedo arrive at  a single point at tho samo time. The  only vatinble quantity is tho enemy's speed. If thai has boen guessed  badly, or if thc enemy alters speed  or course while the torpedo 'is in tho  water,- a-miss-is-almost-certain ^___  AN ORATOR.  Johnny���������Pn, what is an orator?  Wise Pa���������An orator, my son, is a  speaker who speaks best when ho  has nothing to say.  UNCERTAIN   WEAPON.  The easiest way to torpedo a  ship i.s to steam abreast of her on  tho same course and at tho snmo  speed. She is then relatively stationary and a certain target. The  only drawback is tlint youi- ship is  also a certain target, to her if she  fires first. Also thc intention lo attack with torpedoes is so obvious  that sudden changes of the hostile  course ate pretty certain to occur. It  is this, not any mechanical defect,  that makes tho torpedo nn uncertain  weapon. At its best it is sixty times  slower than the shot from a gun.  Often tho gun is a hundred-fold swifter.  The real use of the torpedo has yot  to bc demonstrated in war. It would  bo shown if Russian torpodo craft  attack successfully the Japaneso  fleet. Such nn event is not very  likely. Well-handled fleets surround  thorns,elves with torpedo craft, and  all experience points to the fact that  torpedo craft in such a case will  annihilate each other.  SWALLOWS   AND   MICROBES.

Thus  they arc never to be found in districts whero cholera, j'cllow fever,  thc plague, and other epidemic diseases prevail. The districts which  they select us their temporary homes  are in nil respects tho moft healtliy  that can bo found. It is evident  from this that persons who arc  afraid of catching cholera or other  infectious diseases ought not to live  Iin    places    which'    N-c shunned     by  theso birds.  British Commissioner  Gave     Part  of the State     of  Maine  to  the States.  You don't happen to havo seen     a  stray    Stato     ubout     anywhere,    do  you?    A Stato that does not seem to  know where it is,  or why it's there,  or to whom it belongs?    If you havo  seen  such   a  country,  don't  fail     to  notify Mother  Europe.     Perhaps     it  is one of    tho many territories  that  have got lost in one of her periodical  hoiise-movings,   or  spring-cleunings. ..  To  explain:   tho various  congresses  of the Great Powers, summoned from  timo  to    timo  to  settle  outstanding  disputes,   havo  been   known   to     lose  sight of wholo territories,  which,   as  a result, have passed into lho liands  of  tho wrong  people,   or have     boon  left entirely without owners.  Such a country i.s  Iceland.  It  was  left    languishing    on     tho European  doorstop by tho Congress of Vienna.  For this    marvellous  body  of diplomatists,   if     you   please.     Had  never  heard of Iceland,  und did  not know  thore wns such a country!    That   it  now  belongs  to  Denmark  is  entirely  due to  this  curious  oversight.  Part    of-   the work of tho  Vienna  Congress  was     to   despoil   Denmark.  That  Power  hnd   shown   itself     constantly     friendly     to   Napoleon���������nol  by  its  own  sympathies,   but.  because  Napoleon had a little way of forcing  his  friendship  on  small Powers.  To  punish Denmark  for  this,     tho  Congress  compelled   her  to  give     up  Norway,  whicli  sho  then   owned,    to  Sweden.       Had     anybody  mentioned  that there was a country called Iceland  to  bo  had  for the asking,    tho  Powers would promptly have handed  it over  TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER.  But no mention was mndo of it.  AfLer  the  Congress   was  over,   and  tho conventions signed, by which ono  Powor took this,  and another   that,  it dawned  upon the diplomatic mind  that Iceland had been left���������appropriately enough���������out in  the cold.    Don-  mark,     accordingly,   was  not  robbed  of it.  If ignorance was tho cause of    tho  dropping       of     Iceland    from       tho  schemes  of    the Powers,   sheer boredom on  tho part, of a  llritish    Commissioner    lost    to     Canada a huge  chunk of territory.  This  was a part  of  tho    Slate of Maine,   over  which  there was  a furious  dispute between  Britain and America last century.  Lord Ashburton,  the British    Commissioner, set out with tho   American  representatives   to   settle   lho  boundary of tho State of Maine with Canada.       They    decided     to  mark  tho  boundai-y along a certain lino, drawn  from the St.  Lawrence Rivor to  tho  sea.  It so happened that tho river    St.  John   flows     from   somewhere  about  Hint point on lho St. Lawrence, and  ils mouth, on the Atlantic, is almost  in the samo latitude ns its source.  Said   the  American   commissioners:  "As this river seems to flow protty  straight from one point lo the other,  would it not bo a good idea to make  it     the  frontier     lino  between      the  States,nnd  Canada?"  Tho    British       Commissioner    Had  grown rather tired of tho journey, so  whon the suggestion was mooted,  ho  jumped at it,  and tho boundary was  fixed.  Tho feelings of Britain and Canada  may bo imagined when the truth was  revealed,   after   thc  signature  of   the  treaty,  that while the mouth  of  the  St.   John  is about in the same latitude "as  its  source  in  the  St.  Lawrence,  in between,  the river makes  A  HUGE  UPWARD  SWEEP  to the north,  inclosing a vast territory,     whicH    had     practically  been  handed    ovcr lo  tho    United  States  gratis.  But    it  was     too     late.      Wo  had  agreed to the St.  John frontier, and  had to abide by tho treaty.    It was  generally  known  as   the   "Ashburton  Capitulation"���������a Stato lost  to     tho  Empire because a   comiiiissiouei-  was  too tired .to do his duty.  In     the    course    of     the  European  spring-clean    before      referred       to���������  namely,     the     Congress   of   Vienna���������  quite a lot  of _._______i_alj_S___.___________.s_go:L_los_t,_  with odd  results in  History.     Ono of  these is  Moresnct.  Moresnet lies somewhere near Aix-  Ia-Chupclle, on tno Prusso-ltelgiiin  frontier. H was one of Germany's  many -^independent Stnles, but so  small was it���������a few square miles in  area���������that no notice whatever wns  In ken of it at  the Congress.  Whilo Prussia was taking possession of this, and Austria Ihat, while  Franco wn.s receiving one thing, and  Britain tinolher, nobody bothered  about  the ownership  of Moresnct.  After tlio Congress, therefore,  Moresnct awoke to nnd itself ownerless, in the midst of Europe. It  remains so to this duy; Prussia does  not claim it for fear of offending  Belgium, and Belgium dare not lay  hands on it for fear of Prussia.  So it remains independent, though  belonging to the German Customs  Union. It sends conscripts to no  European army, and pays tuxes only  lo itself. Its governor i.s ono year  a Prussian major, another year n  Belgian.  Through a similar oversight, a  small district named Jungholz finds  itself to this day in a queer position. It is siiuated in the heart of  the German empire���������in Bavnriu���������but  belongs not to Germany, but lo Austria, from which it is separated by  hundreds of niiles. Though in Gorman toi ri tory, it sends conscripts lo  the Austrian army, and pays taxes  to Austrian collectors.���������Pearson's  Weekly.  Sir  tho  Bri-  THE SMILLERBATTLISflIP  THE      WAB    IN       THE      EAST  FAVOBS  THEIK.  USE.  Britiajli      Admiralty   Will      JJuiloj  Warships   of  Less  Tonnage.  Tlio day of tho smaller battleship  Is coming! The instant destruction  of tlio Totropuvlovsk und tho I-Tnt-  suse, by floating mines, has furnished  conclusive proof that naval warfare  in the future will be attended by  dangers whicli no armor can guard  against. Thorn is, therefore, no object iu sinking more money in a  single battleship thon i.s absolutely  necessary in order to obtnin the necessary speed and strength sullicieiit  to  curry  big guns of  long range.  Mr. Philip Watts, tho Director of  British Naval Construction, i.s now  busy with hi.s plans for the present  yeur, nnd tlio next ships laid down  will bc of considerably smaller tonnage than those designed by  William White.  MUST TAKE THE LEAD.  Commenting on this matter,  London Express says : "lt is  tain's duty lo take the lend in naval  construction. Tho strength of our  navy lies not onlj- in it's numerical  power,-" but also in its conformity.  Our 'ships' must conform as closely as  possiblo to the conditions necessary  to obtain the highest degree of security possiblo in modern naval warfare. Th'o Fur Eastern conflict has  added much now information to our  previous knowledge, based largely on  theory, as t.o what might happen in  this age of.high* explosives. We Have  now to turn these fresh facts to our  advantage.  "Mr. Watts lias alwaj-s .been in  favor of the smaller battleship, and  the wisdom of his belief lias been  fully confirmed.! Not only will less  money bo locked up in a single structure, but there will bo greater speed,  whicli, in war time, is almost as important as fighting power.  SHIP OF THE FUTURE.  ���������"The fighting ships of- the future  appear to bo a compromise between  the great, gun-weighted, metnl-laden  battleship, and thc strong, efficient,  and swift armored cruiser. Speed is  the chief factor. This vital essential  has been uphold time and again in  those columns. The slow, unwioldj-  man-o'-war is as obsolete as Nelson's  three-decker. Even the capabilities  of so modern a floating fortress as  the King Edward VII. will be greatly limited in the event' of war by  tlio oxperionco gained off Port Arthur.  FLOATING- MINES.-  "Before any now battleships aro  laid down, tlio Admiralty will have  to consider seriously what are lo be  the future tactics cf tho British'  navy, and the question of floating  mines will have to be settled by international agreement. Tf it be permissible to sow the high' seas with'  floating mines, more especially in  th'o probable track of an .approaching  squadron, battleships will have to bc  confined to coast-defence, and-the  battles of the future fouglil by  smaller craft. Before th'o Far Eastern war if. at an end', we may expect lo have heated discussions between naval odicers and naval exports on this question.   +   IN IEREY OLD EMLAND  NEWS BY MAIL ABOUT JOHN  BULL AND HIS PEOPLE.

AT TIIE OLD GAME,  " A favorite plea of those who are prepared to swallow Mr. "Wm.'Uallihci-'s  absolute neglect of parliamentary  duties is, that He succeeded in getting  a bounty on lead and also induced the  Government lo put various sums into  the estimates lo be devoted to benefitting certain localities. AVitho'tit  being unjust, .we.yotr.leem these points  fairly open to 'criticism; the inference'  is that a member of iiai'liament is justified in absenting himselt" from his  duties, so long as the Goveinnienl lie  supports gives the. taxpayers bucl; 11  portion of���������: the uiont-y- coming direct  from tlieir pockets.

To  return to the issue already alluded to.  The iead bounty existed io a limited  extent (8100,000) before the present  policy was adopted, which provides a  bounty of three-quarters of a cent pet-  pound   on   lead, mined, smelted   and  on his part in tho direction spoken of  might possibly prove detrimental to  those who were urging the Government to come to the assistance of load  milling and smelting.

The   west was increased its  follows:     British   Columbia  from six  to   ten;   Liie   Territories  from five to  eight; Manitoba from six to ten.

One of yov.r readers has writton to  tne and wants to know "what alio  can do."  Women can generally drive figurative nails straight, and this ene hits  It right on the head.   Sho saj\>:  "I am a good looking woman, who  lias no father nor brothers, and v/lio  has to earn hcr own living.

Sha  might slap her annoyer in the face,  but that would bring most undesiiablo  notoriety.  She might appeal to some other man  In the car against the man who was  leering at hcr. The chauce6 are that  the second man would try to push an  acquaintance on tho strength of Uee  eppeal  for  help.  There is nothing for the lone woman with good looks in an Eastern  pity to do but to grin and bear it.  In the West if a man is caught intuiting a womau the rest of the nun  tiarash him.  In the East if a woman tells of an.  Insult she is looked on as seeking notoriety.

His   face     was  .set  in stern lines,  in his heart there  beat the strongest feeling ho had yet  liad,   oven   for     Jessie,   lo   whom     it  had  been  given     to  stir  the  deepest  currents  of hi.s una wakened  nature.  When   Sir   Arthur's     revelation     of  embarrassments and   losses  had  stopped  his  son's avowal  of  his  intended  marriage     with     Jessie,  and     shown  him  that such a  marriage could not  be contemplated,  the better man that  had   sprung  up   in  liim  had   received,  a.s he thought, his death-blow.     I'or  hiin  there could  now  be no  pure and  lovely domestic    life,  lie must     sink  back to his old,    stale    amusements  and  interests,   and  gradually  develop  into the world-worn cynic who is tho  middle-aged result of a youth of  pleasure. But lie would not harm  Jessie; he would never see her again,  'and so gradually she would forget  him. He would marry Clara, as his  father wished, and so mend tho fnm-  i iiy fortunes.  But not yet, whilo his heart wns  still throbbing with the ono strong  and puro passion  of his  life.

To Claude's intense surprise nnd  relief sho suggested keeping the engagement secret until I'hilip couldtbe  communicated with. The naivete of  her .supposition that Philip's consent  could easily be procured amazed him.  As for .Sir Arthur's wishes', tliey  seemed natural to her. Parents usually had theso unpleasant views  about their children's marriages; in  th'o meantime a silent patience must  bo observed until opportunity was  ripo aud the parental will gave way.  And in tho meantime what happiness, what a puro and perfect idyl  of higli-souled love in thoso golden  autumn days! Was ever lover so  chivalrous, .so considerate, so perfect as Claude? JVas oyer intercourse  so sweet, so full of intellect as  theirs? Sure, sho thought, to love  hiin was a liberal education. He  really had average brains and' was  fairly well read, bes'ides having travelled and seen much of interest, and  possessing the art of presenting his  intellectual wares with charm and  elegance. To Jessie, who had never before held intimate discourse with  u man of culture and taste, lie wns  an Apollo a.s well as a Bayard. Mr.-  Ingleby's conversation consisted  chiefly  of Paris    matters and    good-  soothed and reassured her. "Ah !  dearest, I would do moro than that  for you, I who havo neither father  nor mother, or���������" she paused*, thinking of Philip. "Surely it ip-aiot a  question ol" sacrifice," she added,  "but of duty. Dearest Claude, can  it be right?"  He could  not   trust himself  to moot  not reason,  I can onl.yjecl.

With all his selfishness and inclination to satiate his own appetite and  desires, regardless of the welfaro of  his fellow swine, tho hog must bo  given credit of having held up his  end nobly a.s a money producer during the pnst decade. Occasionally  during that period, through overproduction of his kind, the market  bus been glutted and a noticeable  slump in prices been the result. IJut  this hns been the exception.  Tho farmor.s's success depends in a  largo degree upon his readiness to  realize and adapt this salable product to tho market demands. Whnt  | ever his practices have been and no  matter how successfully he may have  prosecuted them ho cannot ignore  market conditions nhd wisdom counsels thnt it i.s always profitable to  fry and suit tho product to the demand as our influence upon the demand can count for but little. If is  good policy to cater to market demand .  At present tho market demand is  for tho lighter and medium weight  pigs rather than the heavy hogs  which in the past have been deemed  (most profitable, nnd it is very important that we adopt our practices  to conform to these changes It has  been thc custom for many farmers to  winter a large number of swine each  year and market them when from  twelve to fourteen months old. With  tho old timo demand for heavy hogs  and tho better prices realized on that  class of stock it may have paid, but  for tho past several years wo believe  that well bred pigs, farrowed in  early spring and pushed from birth  by careful ond intelligent feeding,  would pay bettor than if wintered  and fed for twice tho time. Tho careful feeder can make pigs at six  months of age weigh from 200 to 250  pounds, and this at less cost than a  similar weight can be produced in  any other way. If these weights, or  lighter ones, are to command tho,  best prices because suited to tho demands of the market it seems reasonable that the most profitable handling of swine lies in tho.fattening.of  pigs. This may necessitate in some  instances changes in the method of  breeding and feeding.  In the selection  of  the brood     one  Increased. Ono of tho most desirable  foods for growing pigs is wheat middling slop, if fed judiciously. It  seems to bo greatly appreciated by  tho juvenile porkers and is readily  assimilated.  Cleanly troughs and yards, regularity in feedings and a goodly supply  of pure water will pay and pay well.  It is a good plan to keep ashes, charcoal and salt in the yards constantly so that tho pigs may have access  iit will. Sprinkle tho troughs and  pens with some purifying element  frequently. Carbolic acid is good.  A noticeable aud satisfactory growth  and freedom from diseases will bo  tho result of theso attentions, and  tho young pigs will express their  appreciation by a splendid increaso  in  weight, each week.  As a rule if tho pigs can be put  into condition for l.ho early fall mar-  key the. result will bo eminently satisfactory.  rt,''l1'y:.i'!.ra.!!*S,?,le���������,,im' "thnt y������U Kad I should" chooseWthe "one"foi"'whicli "he  a pleasant: wall-  "It is pleasant under tliose cedars,"  ho replied, affecting to misunderstand hcr; "such a relief after grinding at  letter-writing  may have a fancy,  as  most farmers jynrd,    tho  have  a     fancy    for    some  particular���������'��������� swine pens  breed.

Wing,  tho  well-known  writer  on   live  stock  topiis,  is    a  natural   food  for milch  cows ancl growing cattle.    It is useful  in  the ration of fattening lambs.  It may be fo:l  to  horses with probable  advantage,   but  it  must  be  fed  with extreme caution. '"'If fed in regular   amounts,   not   exceeding   ten    to  fifteen pounds per day,  many experiences havo been entirely satisfactory.  If fed  in unlimited amounts,  nnd especially if tho silage has been poorly  made or has undergone some further  deterioration,   it has    proved 'deadly  in its effects.    Last winter in Minnesota a man ciiine to us at the farmers'   institute  with  a  sorrowful  tale.  Ho had     filled  his     silo  with  fro'/on  corn and  there was mold on the silage.     Ho had     no hay.       His  horses  had been gorged  with silage,   having  no other feed.    Thoy ato n. bushel or  moro a day.    They gained in flesh for  a  timo.

AU  died,     I  think, and    hc.wns a poor man,    in  debt  for  his  farm.     This  winter     a  friend  fed  silage.     What  thoy rejected was thrown out in ,n yard in     a  rack.    From this .ruck cows gleaned:  One day eight horses: running  m     a  yard    ate all     they wanted of    this"  half-spoiled  silage.       All  died,     The  symptoms,    were    peculiar,   including  nervous spasms,   and ono veterinarian  pronounced  the disease  hydrophobia.

The- oro beneath tlie old torrent-  bod proved far richer than was anticipated, and a now town rapidly  grew up in the gully, beneath the  dam. The electric station was next  put in hand. The only site available  was a projecting lodge, some three  or four hundred feet wide, half-way  up tlio rocky gorge. This position,  although only, half a mile from the  nearest ���������'. mine, was!, only accessible  from over tlio top by means of a  rough and dangerous path, the journey about two hours.  The erection of tlie electric    mach-jalready  inery and   turbines-  proved    another;face,  .masterpiece'of engineering, for-it was  nil     carried      up      suspended   below  grooved wheels on two ropes,    which'  Hyde stretched from above his ledgo  across  the gorge into the gully    below.   Tlio two  cables eventually carried  the current    to   the mines,  and  although    stool is not sucli a    good  conductor as copper, tliey were   ablo  to withstand the strain unsupported  and the additional loss was   nothing  wlioro current cost so little.  After seven years, during whicli  tho town had increased twenty-fold,  friction arose between tho mines and  Mr.. Hyde���������inevitable friction duo to  Mr. Hyde's increasing insobriety. He  was dismissed and was succeeded .by  Mr. 'Mark Hanbury, who:..carried out  further improvements by giving electric light to tho town. Thc last I  lieard of Mr. Hyde Was' that lie was  gambling and drinking heavily in  Rio 'do Janeiro.  Statemont by Mark: Hanbury ;  My first acquaintance with Rio  Mancrio and thc works was in January of la.st year. Tho engineering  work had been conceived and carried  out by a master mind. -.The'.'current  was continuous, of .500 volts pressure, and.'was' used for driving motors and lighting arc lamps in series.  I advised tlie purchase of a "balancer," and carried"a third or middle  wire into the town, thereby halving  tho pressure and enabling ordinary  incandescent lamps to bo used in tho  hotel and private libuses.  In accordance with' modern practice  I. "earthed" this middle wire at the  supply station, and had an "earth  ammeter" which would show me immediately if any current leaked to  the ground from either of tho. two  otiier wires. Houses were connected  betweon one of those "outer" wires  and the middle wire;, but in the'caso  of". large installations such'-'ns tho  hotel and tlio post-office' half tho  lamps would be on one side arid half  on the other.   In addition���������to= carryinglout ���������this  work I fell in lovo and wooed, but  had not yet won, thc love of Grace  Anderson, the daughter of the superintendent of telegraph's. Grace held  tlie position of postmistress to Rio  Monerio, and it was said received on  tin nverngo fifty proposals of marriage a week. I can believe this, as  in addition to being one of the prettiest girls 1 have ever met she had  a disposition as sweet as she was  beautiful.  To while away ray time at the  works 1 liad constructed two telephones, and, pointing out my isolated position, obtained sanction to run  a small wire into the town, and in  case an urgent telegram miglit arrive for me���������I have not a relation or  friend in the world���������I could think of  no.better place-to terminate this line  Jhan  the pqst-ofltcp !  Knowing very little of telephones I  placed the battery-in-'.the-main \ circuit.   This I learned afterwards   was  incorrect, .but to it I eventually, owed  'my life. '-.'_���������'''.  On. October 13tli Grace and h'cr  father paid me- a' visit at the: Electricity Works, 'nnot' I proudly showed  th'em my extensions. Mr. Anderson  doubted'tho advisability (as a tele-1  graph' expert) of "oartling" iny middle wire, but I fully explained how  it reduced the possible shock lo careless concumers, and the warning it  would give mo of. any leakage. To  illustrate this I passed a. current  through' somo 'lumps to earth' and  pointed out liow the needle of tlie  ammeter deflected quite proportional  to tlio number of lumps in circuit.  Grace took, the keenest interest in  these explanations.  , In tlie afternoon Grace anil I climbed the liill to tlio reservoir, where I  h'nif a smoll... boiit.

Too much cannot be said on  necessity of keeping tlio cellar ,  fectly dry and in a wholesome condition.' It is more important to have  the cellar, kitchen and other rooms  of utilitarian value, perfect in cleanliness and sanitation, than to have  the parlors attractive and pretty. In  most cellars there is more or less  I dampness, and it is unwise to clean  the woodwork with water as it will  become mouldy beforo it dries. The  cellar walls aflor tliey. aro brush'od  down should be whitewashed, and  all tlie woodwork rubbed with a dry  cloth dipped in kerosene.     Obstinate  Tho man' who can: accomplish work  at a dash is probably the one who  has,spent patient years in preparation for it. An enthusiastic English  sportsman, Mr." Wells, of Redleaf,  Penshurst, had engaged Landseer to  paint the portrait of his favorite  dog.1' But tho artist was one of  tliose who put off their duties as  long, as possible, and one day Wells,  who had been growing more and  more-5 impatient, showed his feeling  by some sharp, expression.  "I know I have behaved shamefully," said Landseer, "but I wil! come  down next Thursday and stay till  Monday,, and the picture shall be  done before T leave."  On Thursday he arrived, just in  time to dress for dinner, and his  flrst remark was, "Oh, your man  tells mo you are going to drag the  groat pond to-morrow! Hurrah! I  am just in time. That is a subject  I have often meant to plant, ,nnd I  shall get any number of sketches  done."  This was an 'impleading announcement; but. the host bore it. Landseer did .-a"''capital day's work...'-for  himself, and the next morning, when  ho come down to breakfast, ho said:  "Mr. Wells, I hear you are going  to shoot to-day. I've been looking  forward to that for a year or two."  So" it-wont_on���������uiit.il~SundiTy morning  nnd then Wells, who was very particular about seeing his guests at the  early service, said to Landseer:  "I suppose you are going to  church?"  "I. don't feel liko going," said  Landseer. "I think you must excuse me."  "Oh," said Wells, in a blaze, "do  just ns you think best! You know  well. enough thnt this is liberty hall  ���������for you,  ut nil  events."  "Thank you," said Landseer. "And  I am going to ask you to let mc  keep Charles Mathews with me, to  amuse me."  Wells vouchsafed no answer. and  nway the people went, leaving these  two to their own devices. Thc minute the house was clear thoy hurried  to another room, which Landseer had  specially arranged for thc purpose.  The head gamekeeper was there,  holding the' dog, and Mathews assisted when there was need, ut tho  samo time amusing Landseer.... When  the party returned from church the  picture Was painted, finished, and  framed on the wall.

Need of, education in Russia is illustrated by frequent stories cpl tho  grossest superstition among thc peasants. The latest is a device to se-  curo justice by placing the culprit on  a red-hot stove, and is authentic. At  a village near Odessa an old man  named Peter Dutsclio was suspected  of having stolen a purse containing  eight: roubles. He denied his guilt,  and liis accusers were unable to  provo tliat : lie h'acl committed the  theft.- In these circumstances one  of the peasants named Martsclienko  suggested tliat Dutsch'o should be  tried by ordeal.  Tlio proposal was accepted an'd the  peasants placed Dutsclio on the   top.  of a red-hot stovo, staying that if he j Penetrates to_ma.Uers  tho brain in the railway car to the  men in shirt sleeves at tlie telegraph"  ollice.

Dutsch'o himself offered no resistance to' this method of  trial by ordeal; believing that the  firo would do him no'harm, .as . he  knew himself to be innocent. Dutsch'o sustained" fearful injuries, and  on the same day it was discovered  that tlio theft had been committed  by another man.  Th'o story of the trial by ordeal  reached-the ears of the authorities,  who arrested Martsclienko and his  comrades. Martsclienko was sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment.  In court lie stated that an evil spirit must liavo possessed him wlien lie  suggested tho ordeal of fire for an  innocent man. Ho went to prison,  glad in the liopo that tlie evil spirit  would  be exercised  there.  PAYLV  HIM BACK.  Hc was a mortal wiio wns mucli to  be pitied. For several days lie had  .suffered a martyrdom of tootb'uche,  antl now he hnd delivered himself into the hnt)ds of a dentist who largely advertised the "painlessness" of  hi.s" operations.  After a busy five minutes the offending molar "was drawn, and the  victim wns trying to ascertain the  extent of the damage to his jaw.  "Is that what you call painless?"  h'o asked.  "Certainly," smiled the Wielder of  tlie forceps; "it was entirely painless  to me."  "Oh, was it? Well, this is what  I call a painless punch," said the  victim.  And letting his clenched hand  dwell for a moment on the operator's  nasal organ, he walked out of the  shop. ,  JEWELLED   COLLAR.-  "Isn't it liarid to lose your 'daughter?"

There is some sense in  the fad which she exploited, and  | thc Queen usually does things with  an object. She wore a heavy diamond dog collar, and under her collar was a band of white tulle, which  made the jewels lie more comfortably. Another advnntago of the background tulle was that the diamonds  shone more brilliantly- than against  the neck. The jewelled collar was  extremely high, almost four inches.  Carticr, "of Paris', invented the dog  collar especially for the Queen, who  has a surgical' scar on hcr neck. Before the day of the collar she wore  rows of necklaces that covered 'ner  thi*������t.  coals and horses, to the mending of  roads and tlie disposition of correspondents, to the schooling of Chinese  officials, and the "direction of court-  martial.

From Port At-  thur to Mukden, from Yin-Kow to  Feng-Wang-ChVng, he hns himself investigated the positions, familiari/eJ  himssclf with the circumstances of  each   situation.  In tlie Russian army, as in thc  Russian household, there is a familiarity of intercourse, a directnej-s of  npjyoacli tliat Btrikcs curiously upon  the mind of the British observer.

He  may bo ignorant of politics nnd superbly indifferent to affairs in the  Far East, but he knows and adores  his company commander, respects his  regimental colonel and reverences the  General-in-Chief. Gen. Kouropatkin  exacts every expression of this personal devotion, is tireless in. cementing the interests of His forces, in  fostering brotherly love among his  children.  "Yes.

At that time they  succeeded in getting some excelleut  views of this part of the country  hefore the advent of the: railway  which are Che most valuable collection  of views in the'world. Their 'present  trip is for the purpose of taking views  as they find the country today and to  note the changed condition oi: affairs.  To a Herald reporter the Professor  jind Mrs. Buell talked most entertainingly of tbeir trip through this  part of .the world' before civilization  liad reached this far, over 20 years  ago. .and their astonishment at the  rapid growth of the west as they are  seeing it in this new age. Professor  Buelf by his views and from the platform has possibly done more to advertise the great Canadian' West than  any other living individual.

In the morning the Commissioners accompanied by General Supt.  Marpole and Supt. Kilpatrick, representing the C.P.R., and Mayor Brown  and Aid. McCarter, Lewis and City  Clerk Floyd, representing the city,  viewed tho, Douglas street crossing  and a mutual understanding was arrived at betwCen all parties that if the  present'' crossing was; widened to 20  feet it would answer all purposes for a  time.  Returning to the crossing up'.to the  Big Bend-it was concluded that if the  city would apply , to the C. P, R. for  un overhead crossing and get a road  allowance from 0. P. Ri through  Parcel-3' to connect with the gazetted  road all difficulty in the matter would  be overcome it being utterly impossible  to follow gazetted road as it runs up  the hillside.  In the afternoon the Commissioners  and the committee from the Board of  Trade consisting of Messrs. O'Brien,  Lawrence and Floyd held a session.  The Board of Trade were a little late  in getting their case prepared and as  it had only been laid before the Commissioners in the morning they had  had no time to consider it. The principal points brought to the notice of  the Commissioners were:���������  1. Revelstoke merchants have Jo'  pay a freight rate equal "to the rate  from the point east to Vancouver plus  the rate from the latter place to Revelstoke. In reply the Commissioners  stated that this was opening up a big  question and'would have to be considered with' similar instances which  had been brought to their notice at  other points.  2. Goods"broken or damaged in tran-  sit.i^ConsigneeSnCan^getsno^recoui-  pense. As in the case of the first  question it would have to remain'for  future consideration. Mr. Greer, C.  P. tt. freight agent at Vancouver,  pointed out that where the railway  was responsible for goods damaged in  transit claims were always paid.  3. Revelstoke has been deprived of  local distributing riite in force some  years ago. This was also laid over for  future consideration. Freight Agent  Greer stilted that rate was taken away  at time of opening of Crows Nest Railway.  ���������I. Goods shipped from,~say, Montreal, in foreign glass and wood, and in  domestic glass and wood and shipped  as car lots, each kind (glass and wood)  takes respective car rates; but with  same shipment! from hero to, say  Vernon, each has to pay the less than  carload rates. Mr. Greer explained  that this system was not in vogue  now.  5. No excursion rates are granted  Revelstoke. In this matter the Commissioners stated they had no jurisdiction.  The local hiinbcnncii also met the  Commissioners and laid before them  their grievances regarding existing  freight rates.  THE MARSHALL SANITARY MATTRESS.  PAT. SEPT.. 1800.  R.
