THE CITIZENS'  BANQUET  To Premier McBride a Splendid  Success ��������� Good Menu,. Good  Speeches, Good Fellowship���������  Revelstoke's Prosperity. ��������� ,'"  The banquet to the Hon. Richard  McBride, Premier of British Columbia,  at  the Hotel   Revelstoke   on Friday  evening was a most successful affair.  Ahout fifty citizens were present.    Mr.  J. M. Scott presided, and on his right  sab   the   guest   of   the evening, Hon.  Richard   McBride,   while   Mr.   Thos.  Taylor  occupied   the seat oil his left.  The menu   was   an excellent one and  splendidly sewed.     After full justice  had been done to the good things provided the chairman proposed lhe toast  of "The King,"  which was honored in  the usual  manner and hy the singing  of the National Anthem.   Next on the  list was "Our Guest," the Premier of  British   Columbia,   and   in proposing  this   toast    the    chairman   referred  briefly to Premier McBride's visit to  Revelstoke, - and   extended   to him a  hearty welcome.     The company then  sang "He's a Jolly Good Fellow."   On  rising to reply the Premier was greeted with hearty cheers. ��������� He spoke for  about thirty minutes, giving a splendid   address   in  which  he referred in  eulogistic  terms to the city of Revelstoke, its citizens,' and the' resources  of. the   district, with   which   he was  very familiar.    He^Tpke of the early  history   "  of        the"'   famous       Big  Bend district, giving particulars of the  early   rush   of   gold  seekei'3   to   the  north of Revelstoke.   He also referred  to the enormous timber wealth lying  north of  the citv along the banks of  the   Columbia  river  and assured his  hearers that from his knowledge of the  district, its resources in mining, timber   and   agriculture,  he   believed   it  would in the  veiy near future, make  Revelstoke a large city.   Itsgeogra-  phical   position   was   such   also, thai  nothing   could   prevent the city from  becoming a great distributing centre  and" one   of   the  most-'populous and  prosperous cities in the province.   His  knowledge .of  the- resources  of  the  distiict tributary "to- Revelstoke haul  been..--acquired   to  a-" great*-- ext'ehC  through the'member for this riding,  Mr.*   Thos"*". .Taylor, who, he said, was  untiring'in liis efforts to promote its  welfare  arid was  at all times looking  sifter matters whicli effected this city  and district.*--   The Premier concluded  his able address by urging the citizens  to stand shoulder . to shoulder for the  public  good, as it   was  only through  united action of the whole that great  good could be accomplished, and Revelstoke through the combined efforts  of its people should become one of the  most  important cities in British Columbia; the prosperity   of Revelstoke  meant the prosperity of the province,  and   the   prosperity   of  the province  that of the whole Dominion.  At the conclusion of the Premier's  speech the chairman called upon Mr.  Hudson fora song, which that gentleman rendered in.the usual good style.  The toast "the Provincial Legislature"  was the next, coupled with the  names of Mr. Thos. Taylor, M. P. P.,  and Mr. W. M. Brown, who was a  member for the Provincial House for  Cariboo in 1885. Mr. Taylor, on rising to reply, was well received. He  spoke of the .visit .of the Premier to  the city, and felt assured that his com-,  ing among us was for the good of the  city and distriet, in so much that the  honorable gentleman would see, for  himself the progress that we are making, and become also thoroughly acquainted wilh the requirements of the  district, and that_when^he_:.was,mnk-  ing demands for appropriations for  necessary public works, he would  have one at least who knows the  conditions as they exist. In replying  to this toast of the provincial legislature, there were questions, that might  be discussed, that would suggest partisanship. He spoke of the financial  condition of tbe province wlien the  present government took hold of the  reins of office.' In the neighborhood  of $750,000 annually, was the deficit.  But, he. was "pleased to assure his  friends that he- gathered from- the  provincial auditor, with whom he recently had a conversation, that for the  first time in the "history of British  Columbia this year would show that  the expenditure was well within the  revenue, and marked a new era in the  history of the province, that argued  well for its future prosperity.  Mr. Brown was next called on,and after joining in the'welcome to the Premier, he gave some interesting facts'  in regard to the early history of British Columbia, and" of Kootenay in  particular.' He referred to the time  he had the honor of a seat in the  legislature,'-as member for Cariboo.  At that time the Kootenay was represented by ��������� two , members, the  total voting strength of the district  being 32. While in the House at that  time, the speaker said, there; was a  movement to cut down the representation to one member,-and hei as an inland representative strongly - opposed  it, predicting that within a few short  years .not only two representatives  but, many more would be necessary  to represent the important district of  the kootenay that, in those days,  from its immense richness iu .natural  i*esources," was attracting the attention of capital from all over, the  world. He referred to his arrival in  Revelstoke about1 eighten-n 'years ago.  ,How he bad seen it grow from a mere  hamlet to.'. its present^tate, "which  was most encouraging. .     >.-..  , "Mining and Lumbering," was the  next' toast, coupled, with the names'  bf Messrs B. Adair arid C. F. Lindmark, and to which Mr. Adair replied  in a splendid speech, in which  he referred no the immense timher resources of the Big Bend district, and  all tributary to this city. He also  spoke of the mining resources of the  Big Bend, and predicted that these resources, as yet practically untouched  and undeveloped, ���������would one day be  the means of making the prosperity of  Revelstoke and district a marvel to  the whole of Canada.  Lack of space! however, prohibits  much further reference to the speeches, all of which were well received.  The toast of "The City" was responded to by Messrs W. J. Law and H.  Manning. "The Press " was the next  toast on the list to which A. Johnson  of the Herald replied.���������*- The toast of  "The Ladies" was most eloquently and  gallantly responded ; to by Messrs. A.  M. Pinkham, Dr. Sutherland and'W.  F. Ogilvie. During the evening Mr.  Pat Murphy replied, to the toast of  "Our Navy." Mr. Murphy at one  time was* a. member of the British  navy and has seen service in the  Crimea. '���������-������������������ Mr.! Murphy in ��������� a happy  speech told of, hisr early days on the  training ship and. with the fleet in  Yokohoma. Japan, where he was instrumental- in teaching the Japanese  of that day how to handle the guns,  and as an evidence that they were apt  pupils ,he ..instanced;, -their success  against the Russians today.  Reference' must -be 5 made toother  features of the programme. Mr. B. A.  Lawson rendered ..a recitation in his  usual splendid style Jand was loudly  applauded, as were*also the songs of.  Alessrs. Hudson "andj-Murphy- The  orchestra, of four .-pieces, played a  number of; "selectionsl;;which added  greatly to' the .evening's 'enjoyment.  The banquet wits.; brought to a close  ahout 12:30, with vote's of thanks to  the chairman, and those who contributed to the programme, the singing  of "Auld Lang Syne," and three  rousing cheers for Premier McBride.

His Wealth  from Politics But Out of the  Jumbo Mine, Goldfields, Nevada.���������Ore Uncommonly Rich'  John .McKane.. an-1- Dr. .E. Bowes,  formerly of Rossland, 'have been very  fortunate in their, mining investments  in Nevada, where they have heen  operating for. the past two years.  They are interested in the Jumbo at  Goldfields, Nevada,. This -property  was located hy Taylor Bros., who  were formerly prospectors in the  Kootenays. Messrs. Bowes and Mc-  Kaue own a third of the stock and are  backed in their ventures by Schwab  the man who for awhile was at the  head of the American steel trust.  About three months since Messrs.  McKane and Bowes secured a four  months lease on a portion of the  Jumbo and they have struck it very  rich.  The stories told of the richness of  the mine seems to be incredible.  So valuable is the ore that the  dumps are guarded day and night by  armed men. When Jumbo ore is  shipped to the smelter guards accompany it, as a man could carry oif a  small fortune on his back, provided he  got hold of the richer ore.  John McKane. is well known here  and opposedJGalliher in the last election. The Herald, with Mr. Me-  Ka'ne's many friends here, are pleased  to hear of his' success and extend  congratulations.

The ninth parliament of Canada was  formally dissolved last Thursday afternoon.

The fourth,  Sherbrooke, Que., was represented by  a Conservative. Those classed as Independents are A. W. Puttee, of Winnipeg, and Ralph Smith, of Nanaimo,  THE ACCUMULATIVE POLICY  of the Canadian Casualty Insurance  Co. is acknowledged to be the best  Accident Policy on the market.  Special low rates to railway employes.  THE ONLY POLICY SOLD paying  for 200 weeks disability. Revelstoke  Insuranoe Agency. Limited, sole District Agents.  Those interested, by looking over  the votes and proceedings of the House  of Commons and official reports of the  debates, will readily trace the ^duplicity characterising every movement made by Sir Wilfrid Laurier's  government in dealing- * with labour  questions. Even the operation of the  Chinese Restriction; Act was suspended for nearly nine months in  order to allow vast hordes of Chinamen to invade. British Columbia and  other provinces coming , in by thousands, paying a small fee instead of $500  of a tax. The Chinamen were or were,  not wanted in Canada, but "Opportunism" triumphed. In the House of  Commons the efforts of private members to introduce and carry through  measures promising to prove beneficial to the working classes, . was  promptly voted down by a'servile  majority. .When a candidate was  defeated for the Commons he.was  elevated to; the "Senate; -many.' were  pitchforked in office and readily  became the enemies of that labour  which aimed at protecting, itself.  ��������� Some were made. judges,- and others  were, -available for "commissions,"���������  notably in western labour troubles and  Yukon hydraulic concessions. At all  events, the very Liberals who received  earnest support from the working  men of Canada in 1800 and again in  1900, were the first to forget their  pledges.  In 1901 Mr. Clare, member for  Waterloo south called the attention  of the House of Commons to the fact  that while there was' upon the  statute book laws dealing with aliens,  the poor man was unable to avail  himself of such, as the machinery was  too costly, it not being possible to take  action' without the consent of . the  Attorney-General of Canada 1 Mr.  Clare introduced a bill promoting an  economical method of enforcing the  existing law.   He further said :  "I believe that if the bill ,1 am.,now  discussing ....were enacted, -*>the.-?law  would he- more'' strictly carried-;'out,  and with not one cent pf'expepse.  My bill provides that any" person, for  instance, any laboring man or mechanic, who is interested, should have  the power to 'lay information before  two magistrates and so enforce the  law. That would not cost the country  one cent, for those who are most  interested, the mechanics and labour-  men would see that the law is strictly  enforced."  Despite the eloquent appeal made by  many Conservatives in favour of this  reasonable proposition, Sir Wilfrid  Laurier side-tracked Mr. Clares  measure and promised to bring in a  "government bill," which he did; but  how ? That bill, while to a certain  extent an improvement on the original Act, had the very same objection  as the Bill of 1897: that is it put every  possible obstacle in the way in order  to make it unworkable. Instead of  appealing to the Attorney-General of  I he Dominion for the enforcement of  the new law it was necessary to apply  to the Attorney-General of the particular Province or to a judge before  the matter could be brought before  the'magistrate 1 In short the machinery was made more intricate than  ever.  Mr. E. F. Clarke, of- Toronto, again  appealed to bave the clauses so altered  as to.give power to police magistrates  to_._try_ cases,^ of./: alleged,: infraction  of the law. He hoped the right hon.  premier, having gone so far in amending the bill, would have seen his way  clear to have accepted the amendment  which was offered on two occasions.  Mr. Clarke pointed out that it was the  unanimous work of the labour organizations. These "friends of labour,"  these champions of human rights and  modern privileges, turned a deaf ear  to all pleas. It is true that some supporters expressed themselves in favour  of Mr. Clarke's motion; in the western  portion of tho Dominion, most o( the  judges are at the Coast. The member  for Yale-Cariboo invites others out,  suggesting "that the proceedings  should be taken on sworn affidavits  laid hefore a justice of the peace or  stipendiary or police magistrate,"  Brave words these; the party lash  cracked and when the vote was taken  the member was absent and the  '.'friends of the workingman" voted  solidly against. Mr. Clarke's amendment.  Perhaps it would be well. to refer to  another deformity " the Act to settle  railway disputes;" this bill was to be  historic; brains and statesmanship in  the concrete. It was eulogised as a  legislative elephant; it proved to be  the mere skeleton of a monkey."  Legislation conserving the rights of  the workingman, was, naturally, a  tremendous drain on the intellectual  reserves of the Postmaster General  and Minister of Labour. Sir William  evidently believed that he had done  enough for his country, and forthwith  indulged ina carefully arranged junk-  etting tour, one of those, "private oar"  trips, so obnoxious to/ patriots when  the Conservatives were in power.  Scaroo had. he departed, ere tne bad  workingman took advantage of his  absence A strike in Rossland, trouble  in the Boundary country and complications in Fernie, all in the west;  railway troubles in Vancouver and at  other points. All along the line, a  perfect holocqust of stupendous tribulations���������all sized up "by Sir William  as the machinations of the "lower*  classes."

Then some time after,  followed   the   Fernie troubles.   Who  settled these ?

Howe   of  Victoria, with Mr.  Mackenzie King,  the clever deputy of the Department  of  Labour,   as   secretary.   Hon.   Sir  William Mulock was not prepared to  wait, therefore hastened to introduce  a profoundly statesmanlike    measure  "Bill  No. 17"   was flashed upon the  House,   "An Act   to iiid in the settlement of Railway Labour Disputes."  This was a^milk and water decoction,  meaning neither arbitration and conciliation, or conciliation without arbitration.

It was in the Senate that full discussion and dissection of Bill No. 17  took place. . The Hon. R. W. Scott,  Secretary of State, nearly choked  over the dose, still it was more palatable than usual. *" He pointed out that  the bill had for its object the appointment of "a committee of conciliation,  mediation and investigation. There  was .nothing compulsory about the  bill, except the attendance of witnesses, when the committee choose to call  them."  ' Sir Mackenzie Bowell spoke of the  measure as absolutely inconsequential.  He was right, for at the time a commission was travelling over the Pacific  coast investigating and preparing a  report with reference to the very  issues Sir William Mulock was professing to deal wilh. That report certainly appeared; it was far from fair  towards the men who toiled; they  were not represented and suffered  accordingly. Meanwhile Bill No. 17.  after being roughly handled by Liberal  Senators, got back to the Senate in .  the shape Ministers desired. Sir William was able to make another trip to  ease his vreary brain, seeking new  fields to investigate and new countries  to conquer. Let us see how he did it  and how readily he induced his Senatorial friends to strangle his iasb '  departmental offspring. ,  J  -    School  Attendance.

Dr.  Williams Pink Pills Should be
Used to Bring Back Health.
Sickness comes) sooner or later in
tho lifo of everyone. Many who for
years have enjoyed the best of health
are suddenly seized with some one of
tlie numerous ills of life. Most of
the ills' result from an impoverished
condition of the blood; thus if the
blood is enriched the trouble will
disappear. That   is  why  Dr.     Wil
liams l'ink I'illM have had a greater
success than any other medicine in
llio world in curing sick and ailing
people. These pills actually make
new, rich, red blood, strengthen
every nerve ill the body ami in this
way" inake people woll and strong.
Mr. Alphoncc Lacoussicrii, si well-
known young farmer of St. I.eon,
tine., proven the truth of these stnle-
ments. lie says :���������About a year
ago my blood gradually became impoverished. I was weak, nervous
and generally run down. Then suddenly my trouble was aggravated by
pains in iny kidneys and bladder,
and day by day I grew so much
worse that Anally 1 wus unable, to
rise without aid. I consulted doctors, but any relief I obtained from
their medicine was only temporary
and I began to despair of ever being
well again. One day 1 read an article in a newspaper praising Dr.
Williams Pink Dills and I decided to
try them. I got six boxes and before they were nil gone my condition
'was so greatly improved that I knew
I had at last found a medicine to
cure me. I continued the use of the
'.pill's for a while longer; and evory-
symptom of my trouble was gone,
and I have since enjoyed the. best of
health. 1 think; so much of Dr. Williams l'ink 1'i'Us that I am never
without them in the house."

It is also possible for a person "i o
sit. beside a telephone with the ordinary receiver at his ear and take
the message at the* same lime it is
going into the telegraphone. Tims
he/is able to make sure that the mes-
j-.-ige is clear and distinct, if it is
not so he can ring up the-, central office and stop further transmission until the defect is removed and an unobstructed  line  provided.
By this method it will be possible |
*lo'save time and money otherwise

faulty telephone message. Curiously
��r:o:igh, however, the message reproduced by rhe telegraphone is clearer
nnd more distinct, than the original.
An experiment v.ns recently made
wiih wo.-ds spoken in Knglish'by a
foreigner. Over an ordinary telephone his accent made understanding
difficult. Over the new instrument
���-���very word was clear. This is doubtless caused by the sharp metallic
tone in which the instrument speaks.
Explanation of the device is thus
given: The current from the secondary of an ordinary telephone, microphone and induction coil'.system
passes through a-coil surrounding a
smail magnet, past which a continuous steel wire is drawn. This wire
is magnetized in a fashion-corresponding with the variations of current
produced by the voice, arid when the
coil' is connected with an ordinary
tdcpiione receiver and the magnetized tteel wire again drawn under the
magnet at the some speed lhe words

Time Reduction ��� Mail
Train's Speed.
\ new record in railroad travelling hus been established ly tlio
Civat. Western KaihouJ of '3rent
I.'titain. On duly j u regular nonstop daily train sei'.ice was established between the London terminus
at I'liddington and Plymouth. The
distance is 210 miles, und the "Cor-
nislunan Limited Express" is scheduled lo over the journey in each direction in 2bii minutes without a single
stop. This supplies an average speed
of 5.1.f>9 miles for the journey. This,
therefore, constitutes the longest
non-stop railroad run in the world.
Ever since, thc year .lSOO this railroad has retained such a non-stop
record, for in that year the railroad
company initiated a throug'h non-
slop train from London to Exeter,
19-1 miles, covered in "3 hours <I0
minutes. During     tho     siibseipiont
years, however, this run has been
increased to .'? hours 30 minutes,
equal to nn average speed of ."il.7
miles per hour. Tn the recently inaugurated run, however, the time
between these two points has been
still further reduced by ."> minutes,
increasing thereby tho average speed
to   56.7   miles  per  hour. Hitherto
this railroad has not been able to
make the journey a non-stop one
beyond Exeter, owing to the absence
of the "Valor.- troughs between the
tracks from which to replenish the
engine's water supply. Now, however, a trough has been laid down
at Starcross, between ICxeter and
Plymouth. Furt'iierniore, the coal
capacity of the engine has been considerably increased, und larger lubricating boxes hnve been supplied, so that the oil boxes can contain a sulllcient supply for thc entire
Meritorious though this run of 2L3
miles in '2'dfi minutes is, yet, if the
necessity arises, the speed can ba
considerably accele. ated. This fact
was demonstrated on May 9lh last,
wilh the North tleman Lloyd liner
Kronpriuz Wilhelm. On this occasion
the- train covered the distance ol
2-KVJ miles from tho dock at Plymouth to Paddington in the remark-
ab'y short time of ;{ hours -1(5 minutes. The run, however, Was not a. I me to
non-stop, as a mail van was lie-. I fail
latched and engines changed at Dris-
tol, necessitating a halt of ',1 minutes .'13 seconds, . which slop, how-
over, was included in the lime of the
fusion was 05.19 miles per hour for
the whole journey, nnd lhe last 'AH
miles of the rim to Paddington was
covered at the rate of 79.17 miles
per hour. On the occasion of fan
trial run of tlie "C'ornishmun Limited Express." a. new record was mado
between London and Haih. the 107

Tho large, airy Indian room was  -very still within' acnrcely a sound  reached it from without; the bright  ���������clothing of a native servant was visible oa the verandah, and beyond  that trees wero seen waving in tho  garden and the perfume of flowers  lloalcd    in. An    elderly   lady   in  mourning*, like most of the Fcring-  Iiccs in that year, reclined languidly  ln a long cane chair, doing nothing  whatever, with th'o nir of a proficient  in the art. She was pale and slender, her hands seemed made of transparent ivory, if one can imagine  inrrfeclly limp ivory. A novel lay,  ������a a small table by her side in case '  ������hc should be able to rouse herself  to  the  effort  of reading.  A girl with dark hair nnd eyes  nnxl .. a rich English bloom on her  face, yet bearing some likeness to  the limp, faded,.dried up lady on tho  lounge, sat erect at a table, writing  quickly and sometimes pausing to  think, now with a deepened color  brought by a happy-passing-'thought  now with a smilo as at some pleas-  nnt. remembrance, sometimes even  with a pussing shudder as if at sonic  horror. Her mother 'occasionally  directed an irritated glanco toward  hcr and made a peevish  movement.  "I really wish, Ada," she said  prc-icntly, "that somebody would  call.      There is nothing  to do."  ���������"You don't got on with the novel,  maimiui? I must try to find another."  i������sS  "I can't think bow you can get  through so much writing," continued Mrs. Mnynard, querulously; "I am  sure I write homo as much as peoplo write out to me, but I am not  always scribhling. It is just ; like  girls when first they come out. They  think they can do ns they do at  home."  "Oh, I am '���������'���������'quite inn old hand  how," her daughter replied, "though  to bo suro this time last year I wan  nt. home. Oh! that delicious "dance,  T little thought I should not have  y, nnotlicr for so  long."  ���������"You arc always raving about  that dance, Ada. I thought it stupid; I am quite tired ol" it. Didn't  you pick- up young Randal there, by  the way?"  '*6h! yes," sjit returned, indifferently, "it was- rather lucky, for. mo  that I danced with Mr. Randal. You  see, I remembered his- face well, ber  ' causo he got a tclogram..to say his  mother was dying, and I thought he  was going to faint, poor fellow: So  that I recognized bim in ; Gossanijee  Hhosc's house and was able, to claim  acquaintance with him. With a  totally strange oflicer it would have  been difficult; not knowing me, he  might   have  suspected   treachery."  "Of course,"- replied" Mrs. May-  liard, suppressing a yawn and much  bored -by this long and .unnecessary  explanation; "most romantic. I  wonder how poor Arthur is getting  on? Your father says' thnt- Kuck-  now must fall"'before.' many days.  Sir Colin has received all his reinforcements by this time an must begin the siege. Hose's account of  ITavclock's arrival was terrible  enough  a������e������ao������a***������g���������  dress; "hero is Ada declaring that  Sir Colin will tako the wholo of  Lucknow with less loss than Havelock  did  tho  Residency."  "Less in proportion to the whole,  mumnia."  "Oh, dear! dear! You confuse my  brain talking like a question in a  sum-book."  "We shall know the proportion  soon enough, perhaps too soon  said Rose, sinking into a loiinging-  chair, playing with her spray of orange-blossom, and reflecting that  they might both bu widows' by that  time.  "Tliey are such splendid troops,"  broke in Ada, cheerfully, "and so  fresh. Not liko our poor Lucknow  garrison. He said that the Ninety-  third "  "Who  said?"  Ada colored and Rose smiled. "You  mean  Arthur,  Adu,  I. suppose?"  "I mean Mr. Randal," she replied,  with  a little.-.defiance.  "I am sick and tired of that everlasting young mnn; I wish I might  never hear his name again," observed Mrs.  Maynard.  "Then, mamma, it is of no'use  asking if you have any message for  him, as 1 was about to do," said.  Ada, drawing little pictures on herj  blotting paper."  us and the children, and that she is  not yet old or experienced enough  to express herself in a becoming  manner about it. She is romantic,  as girls are, and exaggerates what,  after all, was only to be expected  from any gentleman to people in  such circumstances ns ours. At her  age every pleasant new acquaintance  is a friend for life���������until another  comes. Fray give my kind remembrance to Mr. Randal, if you really  think it nccessasy to write to him,  Ada. Tell him that 1 iio not forget his kindness to us, and that little Emmie still talks of him."  "Tliere is no occasion whatever to  write; tear up your letter, this instant, Ada," said lier mother, with  unusual energy; "what possible reason can  you have for writing?"  "He is in danger," slie replied,  with a slight catch in her voice.  "They nil like to get letters, you  know, over such a stupid thing  brightens them up. llosides, Sir  Colin Mays that it is of the highest  importance that tho troops should  be kept in good spirits," she added,  with a demure countenance which  belied a certain wicked sparkle in  her eyes. ��������� ,    -  "Danger,     indeed,   and pray    wliat!

The Hindoo songs she sang in their  wanderings ran in his head, and the  soft crooning lullaby with which she  hushed the ailing child could not be  forgotten. Her faco in her various  disguise.') was always rising unbidden  before him, but especially her face  as he had seen it at, the end of the  march from Lucknow at the railway  station, with little Willie's face just  beneath it, with her star-like eyes  shining through tears in a long, earnest, wirsful gaze.  How could he- ever forgot, that face,  or cease to long for a sight of... it ?  Yet hc know that he must forget  that face, or ceaeo to long for a  sight of it.      There was no  need    to  Airs. Mnynard. "What have you to  do with the spirits of tho troops ?  Rose, what are you laughing at? I  should have thought, with your husband at the front an'd your children  so roccntly lost, and Lucknow about  to fall, you had little cause to  laugh."  "It is unreason that makes people  laugh, mamma," returned . Ada.  "Surely you won't grudge poor ilr.  Randal such a small thing as a letter just before the storming of Lucknow? I am now writing to wish  him good luck," she added, coax-  ! higly.  "It is not worth a fuss," said  Roso  to   her  mother-in-law;   "in    the  'Surely  you   have   not   been   writ  ing to that young Randal in this  heat ever since tiffin?" cried Mrs.  Maynard, startled into faint animation at last; "Ada, I. will not permit it. Such' a correspondence is  most improper, quite out of the  question."  Ada meekly represented that she  had only written once lK'fore, so  that it could scarcely bo called a  correspondence. Common     civility  required that she should write to  thank Mr. Randal for his help and  protection during the march from  tlio Dilkoosh.a,; not .to" speak of his  assistance in bringing her from Ileel-  umpbre and through the 'rebel lines  to Lucknow:. And if Mr. Randal  had been so very kind as to write  and tell her how things were going  on at the Alumbagh, and all about  tho Cawnporc battles, and * why Sir  Colin did not begin the actual siege  till now, and report upon the health  of hor father and brother, surely it  was only what might bo permitted to  a gentleman who ' ha-s accidentally  been1 on" sucli intimate terms as their  dangerous flight  necessitated.  "I think it great impertinence of  him to presume upon the accidental  intimacy." said her. mother; "all  sort.-' of strange adventures have  happened during the Mutiny, everything has been topsy-turvy; proprieties have'-'been'neglected,; sadly' neglected."  "We certainly were not over-ceremonious at Lucknow," Rose; broke  in. "I; washed- Sir. Randal'ii 5,'hirt���������  lie had ,but one, which; was morc  than poor Arthur had at one time-"-  and he fetched water for mc; and  Ada. made a jumi>cr for an oflicer of  engineers, who was killed in it "  "The engineer oflicer, I am certain," interrupted Mrs. Maynard, not  catching the last phrase, "will never  presume,: upon   what  Ada  did.      Hut  [first place, it is uncertain if the letter will ever bo delivered; and in the  second, we don't know who may  fall before Ldcknow���������" she paused,  and tears came into the eyes of all  threo women;  "and Ada only means,  ! us I said "  "I meant what I say," Ada replied, with her quiet manner and  distinct . intonation-' "They have,  only been holding the Alumbagh and  the linos during the.,. last, three  months except when they took Cawnporc, and have not lost many men,  but the assault of Lucknow will bc  no; child's play. How can I let my  friend go into such an action without a word of kindness, and hoiwith  no friend nearer than England?*'  So saying, Ada deliberately, folded  and sealed hcr letter, and with a  quivering lip and eyes like two stars  in a frosty night, rose and walked  slowly from the-room with an air of  proud determination that Mrs. [May-  hard ."feared.  "Rose, is it true that this wretched  boy rose    from  the ranks?"-   sho  bable that he would jever sec her  again. Tliis very improbabflitj* gavo  him a sort of plenary indulgence to  think a little of her sometimes, and  recall their adventures more than he  would havo done had there been anj'  hope. It is not only lawful but  right to mourn over a new-made  grave and muse a littlo upon what  can never be again, and the Alumbagh was so dull, and offered such  temptations, to long brooding memories'.  Yet when Miss Maynard's graceful  and friendly letter ���������', of thanks and  pleasant reminiscences arrived, he  was not so very much surprised; the  camp routine seemed cheerful, and  the. well-worn jokes of his surviving  brother officers (for a comrade's  death was a too common incident)  fresh and amusing, though, as one  cheery young fellow said, if they did  not make their jokes see a good deal  of service they would havo to do  without' any. This letter had the  curious effect of ������������������making him add- a  couple of closely written pages to a  letter he had already written to  Jessie, whose continually repeated  desire to leave the neighborhood of  Cleeve and seek remunerative employment elsewhere, seemed to him,  compared to the grim realities surrounding him, but ns the vague discontent, of a spoiled child, and like  that to be caressed and teased  away.  "I can never be too thankful," hc  wrote'in that very letter, which'-was  dated Christinas, "that. you. aro* surrounded ..by people who know all  about ns, and are with Mrs. I'lummer, your nearest relation. I don't  think I could stay in India if I  thought you were alone among  strangers."  Nothing could be more correct und  asked, when Ada and her letter were  . ,    ., _,, .,.  . ,  gono with  the    tuberose scent,   "and1 impersonal   than     Philips    acknov.  you think Ada cares for him?

She would insist upon kissing- that poor lad whose logs were  shot off at Lucknow, and wrote to  tell his mother of it."  "That was of no consequence, for  no^ one could marry a man .with no  legs, oven if hc hadn't died, my  dear.*'  "True, but this young fellow is to  Ada's mind in much tho same case,  though his legs have proved of the  greatest service both to hcr and me.  But Ada is wilful and makes the  moro of her friendship the more you  go against her. Then sho has such  a horror of anything underhand that  sho always makes the worst of everything she does."  "I feel," sighed Mrs. Maynard,  "that she is too eccentric for any  man. If I could but, get her safely  married.

"It wns not worth while to tell  Ada," said young Mrs. Maynard,  "but as Mr. .Randal's company has  already loft the Alumbagh. .and the  Dilkoosha is actually taken, it is  most improbable that he will ever  get this wonderful letter, or have  timo  to  read  it  if he does."  But Philip did receive the letter,  and rend it in all thc tumult of the  grand assault upon Lucknow, or  rather series of a.'-saults, for the  city was taken - .piece-meal, stronghold after stronghold.  When he returned from escorting  thu Lucknow fugitives to Allahabad  in November and took up his quarters in the camp at th'o Alumbagh,  all the charm "ci military life, and  the- excitement of thegreat'enterprise seemed to have evaporated.  The monotony of camp routine seemed as "profitless as unendurable, contributing nothing to the grand final  result.' There was no more fun in  the .-' hardships and vicissitudes now;  making forays upon friendly but timid natives; seizing their,.;cart-load of  provision.-- with a pretence of force,  nnd smuggling payment into their  hnnds so that their hostile compatriots should not detect them, was a.  stalo joke. There wa.s good lighting  to be had from time to . time-* when  Ahmed Oollah tried to force their  lines and'cut off their communications, but even that was inspiring  only for a time, and mnde the camp  monotony only seem heavier afterward. Philip was rallied upon his  low spirits and accused of homesickness by secret sufferers from the  same malady.  Hut though he sometimes persuaif-  ed himself that he was yearning for  Uus     gray      cuoj.    skies,   wind-swept  their madness.  He found time, to read it, and all  through the long day of fierce, often  hand-to-hand-,. light, the thought, of  it hovered about bim, uud Ada's  fact;, sometimes as ho saw it at the  ball, sometimes . as it. appeared in  his room ��������� in Oossamjec's Hhosc's  house.-as- the.-ITIndoo-boy���������companion  of the flight to Lucknow, sMmotinies  as it smiled on him at the Residency, when the spent ball, after  brenking her chair, touched her, or  as it looked from the window of the  railway - carriage wlien they parted,  kept tracing itself upon the luiuk-  ground of dnrk-fa<:c>*l, whlto-dre--'*'ed  foes, upon flume, smoke, and blood,  for there wns no time for reflection  on that grim dny, nnd if these visions did not "give the battle to bis  hnnds," they yet inspirited him to  do gallantly.

In the bo'uso especially the kitchen, they cause a  great deal of grief. Also in the  dairy room, for which they have a  strong affection, they do a great deal  of mischief, and* thi.s is also true in  the stable whore the cows uro milked; Very few use precautions to reduce the number of these pests. We  give some suggestions as to how the  trouble they cause can be largely  reduced, and farm animals have their  comfort greatly increased during this  trying season.  The Hornfly���������There Is probably no  insect so annoying aiid which does so  much damage to cattle as the horn-  fly. This lly haa rap.idly spread  over the United States. It causes  heavy losses to tho s'tockmen for it  is very annoying to the animals,  causing them to lose very rapidly iu  flesh and, if thoy are dairy cows, will  cause a great, shrinkage in the milk.  As stated beforo, the loss is due to  tho intense irritation, which causes  the animal continual worry and interferes with their feeding and prevents thcm from digesting their food  properly.  This fly has the popular name of  "hornfly" because the flies collect in  large number at the base of the  horns. They settle very thickly  near the . base of the horn, often  forming a complete hand oue or  more inches in width.  This fly can vory oat'ily be destroyed on account of the females laying  their oggs in fresh cow manure, for  if some disinfectant, such as lime  or any of the coal tar preparations,  is put ou this manure it will destroy  the .larvae" and" in that way reduce  the number of flics. Another good  remedy is to paint tho horns. Add  one ounce of iodoform to several  ounces of any ..of. the .coal tin* dips,  zenoleum preferred. If the horns  are painted with this it will prevent  the flies from collection  there.  Tho Common Stable Fly.���������-Another  .well known fly whicn is widely distributed .is ..tho common stable fly.  Its bite is 'very severe and causes a  great deal of annoyance to cattle and  horses and. in fact, to all domestic  animals. *\\T<v;'e the flies nro abundant they fiT**-[uenl)y become very  troublesome to people. These flies  like shady nooks about the buildings  Tlioy are vory troublcsonio just before a storm, and especially   .  DURING CLOUDY" WEATHER.  Their bite is; not poisonout1, as supposed hy some, but there is danger  of the bite transmitting disease. This  fly has boon especially charged with  transmitting to the human family  such diseases as glanders and anthrax and it is not unlikely that the  fly can transmit these diseases front  one animal to another. This t-hargo  is made.on account of the fly making  such * a deep bite. Another characteristic of-this little fly is that it  docs not gorge itself on one animal,  but  bites several  iKSfore il  is filled.  This    fly   has   often  been mistaken  for the  one   that   produces  the      ox  warble on . the backs of cattle.     The  life  history  of  this  fly  is  not  determined,  but  it is supposed  it passes through the dung.  The Ox'-Warble Ply.���������During  summer months this fly lays its eggs  on the backs of cattle, attaching  thcm to the hair. The fly is of a  dark -.'brown color, with a yellow or  orango stripe on its body. lt is  probable that .this .pest-can-, bo prevented by treating the cows at a  certain time of,the yeai* with dipt! or  spraying them with solutions that  will keep 'the''llic**.. off'their hacks.  Any of the coal tar preparations  may be used nnd can be applied to  the animal lightly with a flexible  brush, or with a spray pump. Avoid  excessive application, as a very light  application is sufficient to protect  the animal for some time, as, for  instance, during a milking period or  longer.  A  large horde of flies  around    the  stable and premises could be prevented   if a little moro    attention     were  given to "preventive moanurcs.  of these flies an.  fully  that  the  to bo e***orcis*e(l in the whole process  of butter-making.  fi. One ounce of determination.  Thi.s will help us to overcome all  diMcultics.  0. One ounce of prevention. 'I'he  science of butter-making is made up  almost entirely of preventive measures.  7. One ounce of care. Care is  needed at overy stage.  8. Ono ounco of discrimination.  This is needed to distinguish flavors.  It i.s also needed in choosing salt,  parchment   paper,   etc.  9. Ono ounce of forethought. What  are thc requirements of the market  for which this butter is being made?  We will consider this, and develop  flavor, add salt, and color to suit  our  customers.  10. One ounce of accuracy. lly  making use of the scales we will  know how much butter tliere will lw  in a churning, ond thus guage tlie  coloring and salt, :;o that we may  have uniformity.  11. One ounco of judgment. We  need to have good judgement in  choosing the temperature at which  to churn, and for making conditions  favorable for churning at a low temperature;.  12. One ounce of common sense. If  wo use this we will stop churning  when the  butter is  in granular form.  IM. One ounce of patience. We  must have patience in using the thermometer, in draining the wash water  oft the butter, and in giving the suit  to  dissolve.  14. One ounce of experience. This'  will help us in knowing when tho  butter is worked enough, and not  overworked  and greasy.  15. One ounce of neatness. This applies to person and to product, anil  especially to the printing and wrapping of tlie butter.  10. This is tlie ounce of  ho.'i.or. Wo will do our best,  use what is best, and give such  weight that the butter will be full  10 ounces wlien it reaches tbe consumer. The extra ounce will be that  of good' humor, which goes with  all our  work.  MILK  FOR  POULTRY.  Blilk cannot take the place of meat  as it is not sufficiently concentrated  hence the hens could not drink  enough of it to supply their --wants;  but is is claimed that if a gill of  linsccd-mcal is added to a pint of  milk, and tho milk then used for  mixing ground*, grain, ,it will largely  assiV.t in providing a complete food,  ll-ilk should be- allowed, however,  but should be given in vessels which  will prevent 111th from getting into  it, and the vessels, should be cleaned  daily,- consequently it requires a little more labor to supply milk than  to feed grain. Variety of food  cheapens its cost, as there is moro  product when the fcod is varied.  Corn and wheat are standard foods  for poultry, and farmers) have contented themselves that grain is ���������sufliciont; but-.*;it has boon demonstrated  that when' "fresh'��������� milk has' been given  to chicks intended . to be sold .as  "broilers,": the gain, when: milk is  added to the grain ration, is nearly  twice as much as when grain alono  is used. If milk can be. conveniently  I given to laying hens, larger profits  1 will be derived by thus utilizing the  waste products than by feeding to  swine. As    skim-milk, and butter  milk contain nearly all the elements  of food, the eggs are more easily  produced by hens fed upon such than  when tlioy are not otherwise provided, and every farmer sliould allow  the hens; a share ..of 'the skim-milk  and buttermilk.

Tlie police havo  given the impositions the names oC  the "forgo! note game" and the "fiddle game." Tlie scene of the forged  note fraud was at Liverpool during  race week, am! this was the modua  operandi :  A well dressed man drove up to a  jeweler's shop in Dale Street niul  told the man behind the counter thali  ho wanted to "buy a really good,  watch. After looking at various  timepieces he finally chose one costing $'J ;'.*). and in payment tendered  a ������50 note ($2o0), whicli the jeweler carefully examined, and after,  finding it to be genuine, handed over,  the change.  ACCOitPLICE ON SCENE.  Tho customer put the watch caro>  'fully into his pocket, and was about  to leave the place when another man  entered and greeted the purchaser,  with. "Why. hello, Charlie; who.  would have thought of seeing you?.  What are you doing here?"  "I've just boon buying a watch.'i  was the' reply.  "Well, if that isn't strange. I'vo  jui't come in to buy a watch, too.  Let me have a look at yours. That  seems a pretty nice watch*. Wh'ut'a  tho price of it? I'll get one just,  like it."  Whereupon the jeweler, delightcit  at the prospect of another sale, pro--  duccd a watch of the same kind and  was handed another ������50 note. This  also ho carefully examined, and, detecting nothing suspicious about ita  apiiearance handed over the change.  The two men were departing when  a man of official appearance dashed  up in a cab. "Ah, I've caught you,  have I?" he shouted, covering tho  pair, with a revolver. Then turning  to  the jeweler, he asked :  "Have the.ie men just given you  two  ������.*50 notes?"  "Yes, i'ir,"- replied the frightenvd  shopman.  "Well, they're forgeries, thc clever*  est we have had in England in many  a long day. I'm "a Scotland Yard  detective, and want you to accompany nic with these men to the polico  station at once."  Whereupon , hc handcuffed the mcii  who had purchased- thc watches.  ":i can't possibly come now," replied the jeweler, "for I am alone in  the shop, and my assistant won't Uo  back for half an hour."  "Well, never mind," said the "-'.'(!6-������  tcclive "give me the two notes and  follow us as soon an you' can get  away."  The paper money was handed over,  arid the three men, .two of them still  handcuffed,;drove off in the cab. ,la  a short time the jeweler" arrived at  the station, only to discover tha'o  nothing was known of the matter,  .there) and that he : was minus, , hia  two watches, the two ������50 notcs^  and his change.  -   VIOLIN   SWINDLE.

Tt is R short time, but we know  the Conservatives are ready.  The.'Government was afraid to face  a long campaign, .(luring which the  issues could be exhaustively tliseusscil  and.their, object- has been to catch a  snap verdict. But the situation has  been clearly under-stood by the Conservatives and public opinion is ripe.  The issues are the gravest tlie people  of Canada have faced for twenty-live  years.

Let us go back to lS7(i, when Sir  Wilfrid Laurier was preparing' to  .accept the position of 'Minister, of  Inland Revenue in 1S77; we find him a  .Protectionist", and avowed high -tar-ill'  advocate, an uncompromising enemy  of free trade, still playing the double  ,^,'iiiie; ho knew .French Canadians lo  be Protectionists, he knew his leader,  Sir Alexander Mackenzie, to he a  free trader, consequently, faced both  ways, in these words, (see ollicial  debutes, .1S70' :    . ���������  "l do not deny that I have been a  Protectionist, which I Air still.

How can any lover of bis cMinlry,  any man who believes in Canaiht and  national ptogre.-s, for one moment  place confidence in Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and his colleagues:-' The latter have  deliveicd themselves over lo hiin.  bondslaves for salary and emoluments.  "We say this in no ungenerous spirit:  public records prove this assertion and  establish our contention that Sir Wilfrid Laurier. irrespective of racial  appeals and the effort to stiivthe  passions and prejudices of the miisses  in Quebec, has been false to every  profession onee fervently enuiieii'.ted  by hiin. Sir Wilfrid Laurier was nn  ambitious man; he abused the confidence of Liberals, abused the confidence of hi.s own compatriots to compass the design of leaching Ihe  Treasury benches, Had thi.s been  done by any individual in the ordinal y  course of business, he would have been  scouted on all sides and driven to tin-  walk.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier's next, .attempt  lo cajole the electors on tlie trade  .'pK-stiun was a, declaration at Toronto  in Ittll:  "The.

Yes, this i.s the name gentleman  who now occupies the chief seal, in  the nation's council chamber; this is  the man who would never accept any  compromise; who would wa#e war,  who would be the doughty champion  of Continental Fiet: Trade, Commercial Union, Unrestricted Keeiproeity.  This was "Wilfrid Laurier; this is now  the llight Honourable Sir "Wilfrid  Laurier, "Democrat to the hill," K.C.  11., P.C., Premier of the .Dominion*,  And yet I here are Liberals prepared  to vouch   for Ins political consistency.  Let us dissect this statesman and his  motives slill further.    Here is (mother  nt-it'ilion .until  tliey  have finally  umplied   and    obtained     Continental  PreiVumi of Trade."  "Commercial Union," "Continental  Free Trade " and other issues closely  allied were finally (nerved into a  lnaRiiillci'iit " Will-O'-Uie Wisp "���������  " mires!rietrd reeiproe'ly."

Happily 'the Hon. Kdwurd Blake  opposed the policy (although not  making his letter public until after the  general campaign) and the Hon.  Wilfrid Laurier was forced to go back  and sit down again. However, he  had declared :  "���������When the Liberal party comes  into power, it will send Commissioners  to Washington, to propose a, mutual  agreement, by which there will be  free trade ai.oxci tub avuot.e line,  doing   away   with    restrictions    and  KEMOV1XG THE CUSTOMS'   HOUSES that  go so far to cause friction between the  two countries."  This is the 'statesman who, as the  Right Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier,.P.O.,  is about to ask a renewal of the  country's confidence! Let any unprejudiced man compare the tariff of  1890 with that of 1001 and estimate  the revenue derived from each, and he  will then realize how grave a broach  of confidence the Premier is responsible for 1  Finding that the unrestricted reciprocity bait was not swallowed for  more (ban ono season, the present  Premiei' cast about for anothei* (ly ;  hence lie'advocated "restricted reciprocity."' Tt was in ISO!, when he  avowed :_'.���������'  "If we como into power, I promise  you u'comniission will go to Washington, and if we can get a treaty in  national products and a list of manufactured .articles, that treaty will be  made."  Certainly commissioners, went to  Washington but no treaty was  iiri'iuigeil. To-day Sir Wilfrid Laurier  says "we have asked often enough' for  a treaty-1-it is the. turn of Washington lo come to lis." Quite a patriotic  mood for a leader who promised so  much. This is a case in which patriotism pays; a cheap kind, very  transparent and rather unworthy of a  statesman.  But Sir Wilfrid Laurier followed up  his ISO! speech by one made in Montreal in ISflo:-  " The Liberal patty believe in free  trade on broad lines, such- as exists  tx grkat bhitain", and upon that  platform  exemplified   as  I  have  to'd-  yoil.

"Without, so much ns. a scralt'h."
Then innate sentiment superseded tho

most magnificent "bravery I ever
heard of! How did you over dare to1
go back into that fire for those
cliildrcn aftor you yourself had succeeded  in  escaping?"
"They's "a' been thero yet if T

"I don't wonder."   *
"Only two fellows ever got. nway

Whoat     Imports      From   ForeifOi .,
Countries Increases Year by,
The agricultural returns for 1903
fell n pitiful lale of Kngland's unsettled acres, antl her dependence on
outsido sources of food supply..
They nro of imnieuso importance to
Canada, for the decrease in acreage
of hind under tlio jilotigh means larger markets for her wheat. Why
should Argentine show th'o greatest
Increuso in the exports to Great Uri-
tuiu, part it'll In rly whon tho bulk of
her exports rival those of Canada ?
A careful perusal of thu figures given
in the returns mny awaken nil concerned to the Immensity of tho o*ir
porltrnlty at hand.
Since J 87i*> tlicro has been a steady
reduction in the area of land under
tho plough, and hist year 172,000
acres wore withdrawn from arable:
cultivation. Thia brings the total
.uu'ler cultivation below 154 million
acre.i, or {1,000,000 less than n
century ago. The decrease in wheat
acreage lias' been 8J por cent., or,
145,000 acres, leaving only 1,582,-
000 acres to wheat; while the bur-
ley acreage fell by 51,000 ncren, reducing the total ucronge to 1,SD8,-
000 acres, the lowest on record.-
Kven the lands in potato cultivation
nro less by 10,000 acres.
"Tho chief item," says the report',
"calling for notice in the importation of cereals is tho remurkublo increase in the imports of wheat."
The total received in the form of
grain nlone amounted to ns much us
4,407,000 tons, or .'ino.OOO tons
moro than in 1902. The aggregate
imports of wheat and Hour amounted 5,837,000 tons���n figure which ia
441,000 tons more thai) "was received in the.country on any previous
occusions. Of this groat total 4,-.
259,000 tons came from foreign
countries, being an increase of 1H5,-
000 tons ovcr the previous your.
Tho greatest increase wus in the imports ' from tho Argentina. This
country seat 227,000 tons in 1902.
and 712,000 tens in 190.'!. Thero
was also nn increase of .���">".'"'.000
tons iti the Russian supply. Indeed
the supply from every wheat exporting country is largely iiwrciiscd.-
The increase in wheat imports from
foreign countries is not merely tem-
poruly, but. is steadily mounting
higher and higher year l>y your. During the lust five years it has grown
by half u million tons. The United
States supply fell from .1,:J4'3,000
tons  to   2,''������'7,000.
To tho Knglishman, the one consoling  feature  of   those  depressing    figures is the increase in  tho imports of
colonial     wheat.       Lust year    India,- *
was the chief colonial source, sending:
85'i,000   tons,   an   increase     of    411-
000   tons   ovcr     the   previous     year.-'
Canada   pout   72U,000   tons,   or   112,-
0O0 ton.-, more than .in  the preceding,
year.      Neither "Australia     nor     Now.
Zealand  exported  any,   though    F.ng- '���
land   received   21.1,000   tons   in  10O2.

Tho imports of apples were over,
GO per cent, heavier than in 3 902,
and last year's total of 4,570,000
cwt. represents the largest quantity,
ever  received.
The figures relating 1o thc importation of beef tell almost the samo
talc us do those referring to wheat.
To quote the bald, concine language
of the report, "Importations of both
cattle and sheep once again- increased."
: I'l.o dead meat imported from the
United States increa-icd from 141,-
000 to 157,000 tons, although the
���live cattlo decreased from 103,000
'to .100,000 tons. In tlie Argentine
'supply there was an increase of 21,-
000 tons in the supplies of live cattle and (lead meat, and cf 130,000
tons of Canadian cattle. The dead
-meal, imported from Canada remained
stationery at  2.000   tons.
Imports of fresh mutton wero heavier by 18.000 Ions than in 1902���
hitherto the highest recorded���and
th'o total amount now exceeds 200,-
000 tons. The quantity of pig-
meat received is declining.
Of provisions"tirero-were���ovei;-2007-r
000 tons of buttor imported, tho .
j highest aggregate receipt on .record.
'This reveals some unexpected sources
of supply. For instance, Iceland
and Greenland; fx*nl 55 tons, find Ur
ugny 28 tons. Cheese import*;
slightly increased. The supplies ot
eggs were again larger. Russia sent
pnore than a third of the tolal importation.
Some interesting statistics have
recently been published'by the Universal Postal Union as to the number of postal employes in the different countries comprising the union.
Germany heads the list with 242,-
000, the United States comes next
with 239,0il0, and Great Uritiiiri is
third with JS4.000. -None of the

And a few hours later Billy Frigou  was tossing on a bed of sickness,  rumbling nnd calling for Phyllis  Blain much as Markham Penrith had  done.  Captain Dawson sent a wire to  Phyllis announcing the death of her  husband, and then made urrange-  mentr. for tho funeral.  "Perhaps it is as well that Billy  is ill; ho might make himself a nuisance. I will give the protty Phyllis  a few weeks, and when she is Mrs.  Crolnwell my  game begins."  _As, Billy Frigou did not seem . to  get aiiy" better, Dawson had '.him "removed to "a hospital, where ho lay  very ill for many weeks:  Captain Dawson was right in" his  surmise that Phyllis would'soon  marry Harry Cromwell, ami when he  saw the announcement he chuckled  with glee.  "Now, for the riniitains. the ancestral home of the Pom-it hs, and  wo shall see. what Phyllis Cromwell  will have to say about granting mo  an  unnuity."  When hc called upon Phyllis some  weeks later it huppened that her  husband was away for the day, and  Duwson congratulated himself on the  event.

"Yes, Mrs. Cromwell, hero is the  certificate of death; you see for yourself."  "Then���������then���������who "  "You see how it is.

"And���������anil���������is he "  "Yes, madam, ho is alive, hut. in  very low water. And, seeing that  you havo all this money, he thought  "To blackmail  me?"

Koso Seelye-Millcr says that though  most culinary artists advise us th.it  soda nnrl baking powder sliould not  bo used in combination, in actual  practice tho combination is most satisfactory.  Sho says baking powder biscuits  aro much improved by wetting them  with buttermilk sweetened .with soda  as can be imagined. (It is highly  probable that it is the buttermilk  that' makes the. improvement, rather  than the sodn.)  Tho great* mistiiko"made is" in using  too much soda. A s-jjint den teaspoonful of soda will sweeten a pint  of very sour milk or buttermilk. Mrs.  Miller advises: "Ho sure you have  not enough soda und you will have  it just  right."  Doughnuts, sho asserts, am much  better made with sour milk or cream  and soda with baking powder. Sour  cream cake, in fuct anything in which  these things a~ro user! where tenderness rather then flnkiness is desired,  will bo improved by their combination.
