McGULLOUCH  CREEK PLACER  Arrangements Now Being Made  for Extensive Work Next  Year.���������Pres. W. M. Brown  Interviewed.  A couple of weeks ago a largo consignment of provisions wero sent lip  by the s.s. Revelstoke for The Mc-  Ctillough Creek Hydraulic Mining Co.  sufficient to keep the camp in operation until June 1st next year. This  fill the work of preparing the ground  for 11 successful season's operations  next year will bc completed and will  allow of the company being able to  ttike full advantage of the water to  successfully operate the two large  monitors now installed on the ground.  Win. Brown, president of the company, who recently ^returned from a  visit to Duluth to meet thc shareholders there, makes the following  interesting statement to a Herald  reporter:  " My trip cast was a great treat to  mc. It is just 44 years since 1 was  east. I was three days in Duluth and  did not have time to look around  much while there. I met most of the  stockholders in our company. They  areas tine .a class of men as I~-have  ever met. They nil met me at Mr.  Morrow's office to hear my explanation of the proper.y. * ..They felt  very much'discouraged at the result  of the clean-up "for the two season's  work. I gave them a plain statement  of facts about the amount of ground  worked and that the1 yield taken out  which was far better than the men  expected that worked in the mine,  iind as for myself it far exceeded my  expectations after seeing the amount  of ground washed. 1 think we have  a'piactical man in charge of the mine.  He intends lo have- everything in  "proper wyrki'ig order for next s-pring's  washing.' There are now sum:ient  material, supplies, etc., on the ground  to last till June 1st, so that they can  commence washing as soon as Spring  opens up and work- it day and night  .with two giants as long as the water  lasts. " Our intention is to reduce the  stair, just keep enough men^ to. cle.in-  iij) the season'swash, leaving the mine  iu .fbaj-^iigiiin jfor anoilier' season.  Wilh present prospects ofthe'.ground'  wurked so'"far, Ivani*''-convinced''the  result of next year's clean-up will  moie than. meet all expectations of  shareholders interested in the Company."  It is first timc.in 18-years in which I  have been interested in McCullough  Creek'that the property is assuming  a shape-to prove and test the ground,  and I am as confident to-day as I have  been all theso years that the property  is exceedingly rich in gold, and I  (irmly boliv.ve that next year's operations will demonstrate that my faith  in McCullough Creek was not misplaced. Of the original owners of the  property I "am the only one left.  When my old friend John Sanderson  sold out last year it left mc entirely  alone as one of the flrst owners of the  ground. Mr. Sanderson sold out at a  lair profit and can now live tbe balance of his life in comparative ease  and comfort.

The  lields are strewn with hundreds of  lines of trenches, and, marking the  stages of the retreat, camp fires aro  yet burning. 'Searching parties are  still bringing in Japanese bodies.  Graves ot Russian soldieis can be seen  at every turn, some dug by comrades  and others by Japanese.  BOURNE  Sunday Observance  INSPECTING  THE RIVER  Hon F W Aylmer, Government  Engineer Inspects Death Rapids���������Important Work to be  Done by the Government  Hon. F. W. Aylmer, of Golden,  Dominion Government engineer for  the district went up to Death Rapids  on Tuesday by the s.s. Revelstoke-  The object of Mr. Aylmer's visit was  to look over the river for the purpose  of ascertaining what improvements  were necessary to facilitate navigation. Mr. Aylmer found that Deatli  Rapids was not as bad as reports had  led him to believe. In a couple of  weeks Mr. Aylmer, accompanied by  Capt. Forslund will go around the  bend from Beaver and inspect the Columbia river from the mouth of Canoe  river to Death. Rapids and determine  what work is necessary to make the  river navigable; between these two  points. On Mr. Aylmer's report being  received the Dominion Government  will at once arrange for the carrying  out of the improvements recommended.   ..' '"'['j '.   ' "  Mv. Aylmer was accompauied on his  trip to Death Rapids by G. S. McCarter, manager of the Revelstoke  Navigation Company, Capt. Forslund,  J. M. Kellie, Engineer Colbeck and A.  Johnson.

The Alliance,  he said,  of  whicli he was a devout member, were  working hard to maintain  that   end,  and sincerely hoped that their effoi'i.s  might prove fruitful   in establishing  a day lo   be  set   aside   for  religious  worship.   He   pointed   out  how our  neighbors on the other side of the line  claimed Sunday, a holiday, a day for  sport and recreation, and' ignored the  command   which   had   been    taught  them.     He   closed   his   remarks    by  thanking   the   congregation  for   tlie  hearing   they   had   given   him.     An  anthem   was   then rendered   by   the  choir  and   the   offering    taken     up.

Such is the picture that greets  the eye of the fortunate traveller by  ho staunch little steamer Revelstokui  as she makes her regular trips from  Revelstoke to Downie creek, 40 iniles  noi'tlv which at the present time is the  head of navigation. With such a  grand opportunity for a pleasant day's  outing the Herald is surprised tliat  greater advantage is not taken of it.  There is no trip put of Revelstoke that  can offer, the same attractions to the  holiday seeker as the trip north on the  Columbia river. . Tho s.s." Revelstoke  is an ideal .river steamer, and was  built three years ago at a cost of  825,000, and is well fitted out^for a  limited number of passengers.     v  The boat is manned by a most capable crew under command of Captain  Forslund, who, it is well known, hns  no superior as a navigator on the  interior waters of Camilla and his  crew from chief engineer Colbeck and  purser F. Swanson to the deck hands  do all in their power to add to thc  comfort audconvenience of passengers.  The whole trip is one of extreme pleasure to those who are fortunate enough  to take advantage of it. The s.s.

Train Robbed by three  Men near Mission City���������A  Reward of $6,6oo Offered for  Capture of Robbers.  A robbery unique in the history of  Canada and one of the most daring on  record in the Dominion was perpetrated near Mission at 0:30 p.m. on Saturday when thc transcontinental express  No. 1 was held up by three men armed  with guns und dynamite. The train  was boarded by the bandits at a water  tank near Mission, and the engine,  with the express and mall cars cutoff  by the robbers and run by them tq.a  point- on the Fraser river about i  miles west, where they hail- a boat  waiting to ferry them over the Fraser.  From the south hank of the river they  lieiuled soutli with about !$7.000,in gold  "dust tuul cash, besides "the legisfercd  mail, the amount of which is not  known..,  Latest information concerning the  chase after the robbers comes from  Chief of Provincial Police Colin Camp-  hell, who slates that he hits picked up  the trail of the bandits at Linden,  Wash, The Vancouver police have  been reinforced by Constables Spain  and Wilkie of New Westminster, and  by live Pinkerton detectives from tlie  Seattle"ollice of that organisation.  If is believed that the roblicrs have  been surrounded just across the American side of the line, and news of  their capture may bc expectid at any  time. ...      -  As an incentive to the capture of  the desperadoes, the C.P.R. and the  Dominion Express Company announced that they would jointly olfer  a reward of $0,000 for information  leading to the capture and conviction  of the robbers and a proportionate  amount for the capture of individual  members of the gang. Word wit*  received from Victoria to the "effect  that the Provincial government would  give an additional reward of $500 for  each robber captured. There is thus  a reward of $0,500 for the person  giving information leading to the  arrest and conviction of ;the desperadoes, while it is expected that this  stun will bo increased by the Dominion Government in view of the fact  that the mails were robbed.  The three desperados, are known to  be brothers and to havo left Vancouver, where they had been staying, the  day of the. hold-up. '   '  A fourth man, an accomplice, is  believed to be carrying provisions and  information to the robbers. The  police believe that the oldest man, the  leader, is the man wanted for train  robberies in the States, and Chief  Campbell has a photqgraph of . him  that corresponds exacts��������������������������� with ��������� the  description furnished-by train men.

A WIS!" OLD HORSE.  The horse belonged to tho lato J.  Lane, of Frcseonibe, Gloucestershire,  England, and the anecdote was told  by  the   Hev.   Thomas  Jackson.  Mr. Lane, on going home one dny,  turned the liorse into a field to  graze.  A few days before this thc horse  had been .shod, but had been  "pinched,"-.ns the blacksmiths call  it, in t'hc .shoeing of ono foot; that  is, the shoe was too tight, so as to  hurt his foot.  The next morning after Mr. Lane  turned the hor.se into the field to  giare, he missed him. "Whnt can  have l;o~on':e of old Sol?" nsked ho.  The name of the horse was Solomon.  lis was so named because he was  wise.  When Mr. Lane asked where old  So! was, Tim. the stable boy, suid,  "J think some thief -aiust have got  him. for I cannot find Sol in the  Held  or  in   the cow-yard."  "What,     makes vou     think that     a  thief has  cot hiin?''  asked-Mr.  Lane.  "Well,   sir."   said   Tim,"   the     gate  of  the  field  '".as   been   lifted   off     its  'hinges, and left on  the ground."  "That is no proof that a thief  look the horse," said Mr. Lane. "I  iliink that old Sol must have dono  that, himself.-- I will tell you how we  can find out. We will look at the  gate, ami if ther-; i.s a mark of Sol's  teeth on it we .shall know that he  hns  let  himself  out."  So they' went to the gate, and  there on the top rail was the .'mark  cf a horse's teeth.  "Now, ��������� why"' should Sol want to  get out of this nice field,, so full of  grass and clover'?" thought Mr.  Lane.  "Perhaps,"   said   Tim,  smith  can   tell   us  about  "1   will   drive   over   to  smith's    shop     and     sec,  Lane.  So Mr." Lane ' drove over to the  blacksmith's shop, which was a mile  and a half off, and said to Mr. Clay,  the blacksmith: "Have you seen anything  of  old  Sol'?*'  "Wliy. to be sure," said Mr. Clay,  "Old Sol came here to-day, and told  me I hnd made a bad job of it in  putting the shoe on hi.s right lore-  foot.*'  "What do you mean, Mr. Clay'?"  asked Mr. Lane. "A horse cannot  talk."  "O. true, he did not say it in  words; . but he said it by act as  plainly as I enn say it. He came to  thc forge where I stood, anil thou  held up hi.s foot, and looked at me,  as if ho would like to say, if ho  could! 'Mr. Clay, you are getting  careless in your old age.

Mr. I'hilip Cruuiptoit Smyly, the  'eminent Irish surgeon, whose funeral  has just taken place in Dublin, was  the victim once, os it hns been said,  of a' wicked practical joke. Summoned to attend a distinguished gentleman who had been thrown from his  horse in College Green, lie responded,  of course. Tho distinguished gentleman was tlie statue of William of  Orange, wliich had been blown off  the pedestal with a charge of gunpowder.  The Ilev. A. Uf. Cooper, vicar of  Filey, near Scarborough', England,  by his feats of pedostrianism has  earned the titlo of "Tho Walking  Parson." In 1S87 ho walked to  Home, 74.1 miles; and three succeeding years ho walked respectively  across Ireland, from Hamburg to  Paris, nnd frm Filey to Budn-Pesth.  Hi.s other long walks have been  across Belgium, through Spain, to  the North of Scotland, to -A'enice,  and (o Monte  Carlo.  The young King of Spain is regarded with affection by tho peoplo  of Madrid. Indeed, he may almost  be culled their pot. Tho fact that  ho is a good sportsman and a fine  rider appeals to the Spaniard. Hi.s  hundred horses are one of the sights  of Madrid. There is a horse for every  conceivable function.

At the conclusion of  hor performance tho other day sho  sprang a sensation upon her audience  by displaying a notice tluvt she.  would kiss anyone who would give  her ten roubles for the war fund.  The audience,- .-soys some news from  Moscow. imiv.cdiately sprang up,  flourishing bank-notes, and invaded  the stage. So great was the confusion that the pietty nclrocss had to  take refuge in her dressing-room.

The Baroness Biirdott-Coutls, Who  has just celebrated her ninetieth  birthday, enjoys tho distinction of  being the only woman who by-merit  alono has been raised to the peerage,  and has tho honor of being the only  lady alive on whom hns been conferred the freedoms of London and  Edinburgh.

The  Head   of  the   Nation  is   Held  in   Great  Religious  Veneration.  Warships have boon usod by thc  Japanese most prudently and solicitously, says the New York Post. They  could not bc replaced, for the materials for new ones would have to be  imported. Not once have the Russians induced Togo to put theni iu  clangor from their big guns. But  human lifo has been hazarded with  un abandon seldom known in the  world; and not by command, but  from volition, individual initiative,  and u half-patriotic, half-religious  ardor. This very effective strango  element in their strength is to be  explained by the fact that tho Japanese retain to a great degree old  mental attitudes, which cannot be  changed us cpiickly as thc cut of a  warrior's dress. Although thoy  have adopted Western anay and  navy systems, they have kept tlieir  own ancient notion of military duty.  This makes tlieir lighting organizations dilferent from all others, and  you havo to understand what that  ancient notion is before you can calculate the present or future of this  young powor.  Englishmen fight for "God and thc  King"; Americans for home, country  and ling; Frenchmen for "La Pat-  rie." In tho West thero is our patriotism, high devotion to tho State.  WHAT JAP FIGHTS FOR.  In Japan tlie soldier or sailor  fights for the land itself; it is sacred  to him as the abode of his gods, the  spirits of his worshipped forefathers.  He lights for tho Emperor, who "is  more than tho ardhconstable of a  Rcchtsstaat"; besides being temporal  monarch, he lias been made by ancestor-worship, with its accompanying  deep deference for parents, tho fa-  t'her of fathers; and, in addition, _ he  receives greater reverence that tho  Pope from his people, because he,  the. Mikado, is looked upon as himself the son, tho representative and  viceroy of Ilea von. Devout households hnvo altars where his portrait  is venerated because of what he  means in Buddhism and Shintoism  and knightly codes and tradition;  Not long ngo missionatics tried to  abolish in the schools the solemn  obeisances lo the picture, not being  ablo to perceive that these were acts  of.homage paid through, not to, tho  t'mperor.. Busdido, 'o>' the code of  the old knights of Japan, taught  that, .since tho individual was born  into the Slate, and became part and  parcel of it, lie ..must, if need bo, dio  for it, or for "the incumbent of its  legitimate authority." Life wa.s a  means where by to servo the master;  and this wns: enjoined upon tho vassal toward his feudal lord, as well ns  upon the lord toward the Emnnror  ���������whoso kingly responsibility was to  no one here  below.  ���������DISDAIN  OF  LIFE.  New  Japan- clings  to  most of  this  whero nearly 150 out of 200 men  choso death rather than surrender,  indicates tho point of view better  even than thc indomitable jeopardizing of lifo to seal up Port Arthur's  channel. Twenty thousand mon had  volunteered for that task; chances of  escape 'wore not many, still there  were a few.  When 150 men with only rifles will  not givo in to an armored cruiser  carrying forty-four great guns and  quick firers and two torpedo tubes���������  why, war has a now factor to reckon  wi th!  Here, then is a people whoso creeds  arc calculated to make soldiers and  to make them capable of unheard-of-  oudueit.ies, and in religious fervor  and hope of higher reincarnation. Indeed, they will rather court death.  If you consider the Swiss Guards, or  Balaclava,   or  Thermopylae,   or    any  man to His senses, and in 1895, the  French Chamber voted in favor of a  friendly agreement with Switzerland  by a majority of live hundred and  thirteen as a result of the fearful  damage done _bAL., the smaller Stato.

In  addition to raising hor tariffs against  the world generally, sho inflicted particular injury on her neighbor, Germany, by making her pay tho higher  tarilf, whereas Germany's rivals paid  the lower. Germany, of course, replied by shutting out Russian produce, and tho two Powers fought a  furious tnrilf war. But Russia, had  a corner for Germany, out of which  that Power could  not got.

So spoke the six  Great Powers of Europe one dny last  summer to the erring Kingdom of  Servia, when at ono fell swoop a.  group of assassins made away with  the Obrc-novileh' dynasty.  "We sha'n't speak to you for a  !ong time," tliey said, and a day  or two after the massacre, several  ambassadors and their households  wore .leaving''Belgrade Station for an  indefinite "leave of absence," from  which some of them have not yet returned.  "You bad, bad man," said the  same Powers, on August 31st, .1896'  to Abdul Hamid, Sultan of Turkey.  "Yott have massacred thousands of  Armenians. We would like to go  to war with you about it, if we were  not so afraid of each olher. Never  mind. Wo sha'nt light up on your  birthday.    There!''

"But you shall bo punished," he  continued. "I sha'n't call on you  this year."  This threat is far more terrible  than it sounds. Scores of continental towns, not only watering places,  but inland centres, such as Brussels,  the Hague and many German cities,  look to British and American tourists for their summer revenue, and  the falling off of visitors brought  RUIN TO MANY HOTELS,  houses,   and  shop-keepers.    American  visitors,   by-the-way,     avoided       tho  Continent to a great extent, as thoy,  too,  were subjected to  insults.  The late Queen herself administered the snub ' direct to l-'i-uncc by  changing her winter resort from tho  French to tho Kulian side of the  Riviera.  Lns't. year it should bo remembered,  the King did ' not as usual go to  I-Iomburg, but to Maricnbad, in Austria. As tlie King has moro or loss  sat the fashion for Hamburg, His  Majesty's change of plan gave a  tremendous impetus to the Austrian  rival.  A word from Royalty, too, or  some personage of high rank, hns  been known more than once to crush  a whole industry, and through that,  to  punish  a nation.  A nolo to the elTect that a reigning Sovereign no longer smoked  Havana cigars, would undoubtedly  punish the Island of Cuba in the  most appalling fashion, as Society  invariably lakes its load from the  monarch in such dictates of taste.  During a critical period between  Germany nnd France, Bismarck inflicted almost as groat a blow on  his enemy at the dinner-table as ho  could on "a battle-field. He let it be  known that he no longer drank French  wines. Without doubt, this hit had  a groat deal to do with the development of the Rhine wino industry,  and thereby was injurious to tho  whole French nation.���������Pearson's  Weekly.  bouquet bore the  inscription,   "From  do not crowd and crush one another jprjVjng  a   schoolboy  of  his    pooket-  t.he youngest Hardness to the oldest  Baress  in England."

Through the wildest and most uncivilized parts of the Russian Empire run tho costliest and most up-  to-date railway trains in tho world.  They leave Moscow for the shores ol"  the Pacific Ocean, tho longest  through journey in tho world, which  occupies sixteen days. These trains  rival in luxury anything else on  earth, and each ono carries n doctor  and na interpreter who speaks seven  or eight  dilferent  languages.  Moreover, many of these trains do  luxe carry baths, not only for the  convenience of the passengers, but  for the use of the railway employes.  Hence, when tho stntion-masler at  Somethingoliski discovers that he  needs a bath, a. somewhat rnro occurrence, he waits till tho express  train  comes  in.  This habit of carrying doctors on  trains is a godsend to the tho rural  Russ. Tliere is no country in tlio  world .which has a smaller proportionate number of medicos���������only one  to every 12,i300 of its inhabitants.  I-t- is, therefore, usual for the peasantry "lo "hold up" a train and invoke tho aid- of the travelling doctor, as tho nearest resident qualified  man may be three or four days'  journey  distant.  ILLITERATE RUSSIA.  With tho exception of one or two  of thc Balkan States, Russia is th'o  most illiterate country in Europe,  over 60 per cent, of the inhabitants  being unable to rend or writo. Yet  St. Petersburg has the largest university in tlio world, one building of  which has a frontage of nearly a  quarter of a mile, and with the solitary exception of tho (liitish Museum, possesses'the lhosl complete library  in existence.  There is no danger of a Morgan  shipping combine interfering with  Russia's mercantile fleet. Nobody  who is not a "Russian subject "can  hold any shares in a Russian vessel  or vessels, except by inheritance, and  then such shares may only, bo hold  for a period of two years, when they  must bo disposed of to a subject of  the Czar.  Hundreds of thousands of Russian  nensants deliberately eat poison with  their broad. This poison is a parasitic fungus known as ergot, found  in tho rye, which i.s the staple foodstuff of the country. The peasantry  know its danger, but aro in such a  poverty-stricken condition thatl tliey  arc compelled to mako thc diseased  rye into bread, and take their chance  of evil results following, as nn alternative to starvation. In the Province of Tomsk alone, as recently as  at Christmas-time, one in'every ton  of tho inhabitants was suffering from  the effects of ergot poisoning.  Among this class of Russians . a  bride's character is judged by the  dinner she cooks on her wedding  day. When she arrives at her husband's house sho has to prepare a  meal with her own hands as a tost  of   household     capabilities. If she  succeeds in gratifying her guests, it  is taken ns a proof, not only of tlio  young woman's own excellence, but  also as a recommendation of her  wholo family, by whom she was instructed in the culinary art. Speaking of marriages, too, a larger percentage of males marry under tho  ago of twenty-one in Russia than in  any other European  country.  In the Trans-Caucasus education is  mainly carried on in silkworm-  schools, tho chief object of which is  to teach thc proper method of roaring those useful littlo creatures. Ono  of tlie great, exports of Siberia is  th'o liquorice root, beloved of every  school  boy.  TRADE PROSPECTS.  Russia is not greedy in the way of  trade. Sho invites imports, as well  as sending out exports,' Hor ollicials  say there arc groat openings in the  matter of oysters, blacking, and  dentists' instruments, among .other  things; whilo 'at' Warsaw tho inhabitants have taken a sudden liking to  spoons. One British firm alone sent  into that' town recently a consignment consisting of 018,400 of those  useful  articles.  Russia Siberia has motor cars, a  tinned-salmon factory, and an open-  air-consumptive-cure cslablishnicntr  as evidences of its up-to-dateness.  These arc severely handicapped, however, by the fact that all the Siberian roads, where any exist, are  simply ot logs placed side by side.  ACCORDING TO DIRECTIONS.

Such u largo sum was actually bequeathed recently Iiy a thief  lo his victim, a Mrs. I'eter Jordan,  of Brockton, Massachusetts. Tho  pocket-book had boon stolen whilo  Mrs. Jordan wn.4 u visitor at tho  fair in her town, nnd though tho  polico woro informed and a reward  offered for its recovery, all efforts  were without result.  Imogino tho good woman's surprise, therefore, when, fifteen years-  later, she received a lei tor from a  linn of New York solicitors informing hcr that their client, one Georgo  W. Todd, Iind bequeathed to her tho  whole of his fortune as reparation  for tho theft committed so long beforo.  Bill Sikes is not often guilty of  such generosity. One of his kidney;  however, did return interest at ten  per cent, with thc capital ho had  stolen. The thief in question, a  man named Figinski, an employe in  a. Vienna railway station, had absconded with 51,400, and several  months went by, despite tlio -efforts  of tho polico, without news of him.  Then one day the employers received  a registered letter from thoir hit&  .servant. ..Upon'opening the package,  th'oy discovered the stolon money, together "  ���������WITH THE INTEREST.  In an accompanying note Figinski  described how he h'ad fled to Monte  Carlo, had invested the $1,400 at  the gaming tables, and, being lucky, ���������  had converted his stolen gains into  $140,000.  Not long ngo a lady picked up a  satchel in the Rue do Ronnctf, Paris,  which sho took immediately to the  nearest polico station. Tho owner  of the satchel Inter claimed the property, but complained that a ?100  banknote was missing, and accused  the finder of -stealing it. Though,  thc commissairc opened mi inquiry,  ho could find nothing to justify tho  assumption that tho lndy -who found  tho s'atchol had boon dishonest. A  few days later, however, a Lazorist  priest conic into the polico station"  with tlie missing note. lie had received it from an unknown penitent  in  tho  confessional  box.  The burglars who broke into a Berlin lamp' factory recently and stole  money, jewellery, and 13,000 marks''  (8.1,350) worth of bonds, a few days  hi Ier returned the bonds with a note  snyiiig_that "as tho same might hc^  troy them, they'would not deprive  tho owner of this jiortioiijof his property." . 'j?  The action of a French' burglar  about tho snme time wns very similar. Though taking all the money  he could lay his hands on, ho declined to rob the fair owner of the house  into whicli he had broken  OF   ANYTHING   ELSE.  As his note so  sympathetically,   put  it, "hc could not Iind it in his "heart  to take Madaine's jewels in case they,  wore heirlooms."  People who arc usually honest have  before now committed indiscretions  for which thoy have repented afterwards and endeavored to make reparation. In one case, which came  to light last slimmer, a lady return- ,  ed to a h'olel-kecper in Rogay,, Italy,  two silver dessert knives which sho  had stolen as a. school girl twenty  years hefore.  To the tender mercies of the post  was left an Indian silver bowl, which  aftor a disappearance for several  months from Somerset College, Vent-  nor, was, a short time back, returned anonymously.  A magistrate has before now been  the recipient of returned stolen property. Such a package was received  quite recently by Mr. Curtis Bennett,  the stipendiary of Marylebonc police- ���������  court.  Two men were' charged with stcal-  ing-a sovereign and a gold watch  and chain by means of tho three- ���������  card-trick, and a detective was telh  ing the' Court that he had been unable to trace the stolen property,  when    Mr.    Bennett gave a pleasant  surprise- to��������� the���������proceedings.

"Ychi done bright, Abraham," said  Roger, who had been standing scowling with his hands in his pockets,  whence he withdrew one with half a  crown,  which he offered  to Abraham.  "What be yc, gwinc at with he?"  growled Abraham, glaring with mingled vindictiveness nr.d longing at  the comfortable-looking coin.  "Take  it.  .Abram."

I Roger took up a wooden shovel  and made the winnowed corn into a  Micat heap ready for a sack to thc  ' tunc of the flail strokes, then ho  turned back through a cloud of flouting chuff to Abraham, whose face  was more viciously set and his  strokes, then ho turned bock tlirough'  a cloud of floating chaff to Abraham  whose face was more viciously set  and his strokes fiercer than ever.  "So, no, AbruKam," he said,  "keep o still tongue; don't even tell  your wife."  Abraham paused    and     wiped    his  brow.    "No call  to  toll she," he   returned,   with  a     sort  of surly    grin,  "Trust Sarow to tind out.

"Look here, Jess," continued Roger, taking off his hat to thrust his  hand through his thick tangle of  curls, "I suppose you don't want- a  friend?"  "A  friend,     Roger?"  asked  Jessie,  smiling and    stopping    by the    low  stone wall, on which she sot her basket.      "Why?"

If there'd boen  a chance, I wouldn't have been so  mean with poor Phil away."  "Forget mo, Roger," she said,  drying her eyes, "but I will never  forgot you.and your kindness." She  gave him her hand and left him,  stabbed by his words and touched  by his friendliness, and thinking of  the way in which she had undervalued this sterling fellow because of  his rough exterior and intolerable  ways. And yet to be pitied and extenuated by- Roger! Well, -it - would  not be for long. "   -  Sho had    not   left Redwoods since  her visit    lo the Inglebys.     l't   was '  evident to Jessie thnt Mrs.  I'lummer  walk.      Why,  you  haven't been    out  this  three days."  Jessie did not know how to refuse  this small request; she suggested  sending the young maid-servant, or  a letter, and even broached the immense heresy of her cousin's fariag  forth with her.  "It's not much you'll hev at my  death, Jessie," moaned Mrs. Plummet", in response, "so I can't think  ���������why you want me to be gallied into  my grave so quick, I'm sure. Not  that 'twill bc long, anyhow. And  I'm tlie lust to want to live on, a  burden to my own flesh nnd blood.  Plummcr'ri find a difference in the  housekeeping, not to speak of the  dairy, ond as for the poultry, I  never was ono to boast, but I should  wish* you to pint out liner broods of  turkeys than what I'vo rared this  summer. Night and day did I wait  on theni turkeys, I don't know what  more I could a done for them short  of sleeping outside their coops and  not closing an eye ull night, I'm  sure. If nnybody'd tell me whnt I  could a done more, trapozing through  tho archard grass wet days, and  wearing away to a shadow, I'd a  done it and  thankful."  Jcssio hastened to reassure her  cousin, while Mrs. Plummer, whose  curls were.in their full-dress condition and would not bear roup.li treat-  moot from damp pocket-handkerchiefs  very carefully wiped her round,  plump',' apple-like checks.  "Not that I ever look to you to  do anything, Jessie," continued  Cousin Jane, with a'mournful sigh  from the depths of her broad' and  wholesome chest; "many a time your  poor mother hev said to me, 'I've a  bon useful myself, cousin, nnd I  should wish the little un to bo nr-  nunicnlol.' I was always against it  myself, but there was never anybody forerightcr than your mother  without 'twas your poor-" father.  Tho times 1 warned poor Martha  against having him; but hev him she  would and cart-ropes wouldn't hold  her. ^You'd a been easier to man-,  ago if she'd a married a more per-  suadabler man, Jessie, though I  don't cast it up ngen you that your  mother would marry Mat Meade. As  for asking of you lo spile your  hands, I - wouldn't do it to save  anybody's .life. And I' m sure I  never shut an eye last night with'  pig-killing nnd Roger's shirts on my  mind, and, you going in to Miss*  Blushford's to-morrow; not that I  wanted you to help pickle walnuts,  which do black the hands terrible.  But ready to drop as I am, going  over to Mrs. Woodford's is no matter; after all, wlien anybody's worn  out a mile or two's nothing. What  if it do take mo off a week or so  sooner? 1 may as well - die and a  done'with' it, I suppose."  So Jessie thought, but she did not  say so.  "You mustn't be cross on my last  day, cousin," she said; after receiving Mrs. Plummcr's final directions  on the ��������� doorstep at starting, "and  please try and think as gently as  you can of mc,  whatever happens."  Her words and something unusual  in her manner struck Cousin Jane  with an uneasy sensation. "Whatever have come over the child of  late?" she wondered. "Boar, dear,  how I wish Philip would come home  or else have her out! She finds tho  time long, poor thing, she's lonesome and sho frets. It was just like  poor Mat Meade to tie hor up with  Philip, and him going out to the  Mutiny. But thore, what is anybody to do witli a girl that's neither  fish! flosh, nor good red herring? She  can't bo happy with plain folk, that's  sure. Poor Mat meant well, I will  give him credit for that."  Tho day had clouded heavily since  tho morning, the weather was  breathless tind oppressive, though of  Into the air had had the strong,  sharp bite whicli tells of coming winter, warms young blood, and inspirits drooping nerves. The heavy  langor weighed upon Jessie's overburdened heart and depressed her,  body and soul; yet she walked with  a quick, alert air and there was a  tense, strained look on her face.  Her shortest, most direct way lay  straight across tlio Marwell woods,  but slie chose to go the long way by  the highroad and    through tho    vil-  keenly sensitive to the fact that Mrs.  Woodford had never before regarded  h'er with" such interest. It's gwine  to thunder aforo long. Wun't ye  bido till the starm's bio wed over?  "Thunder!" echoed Jessie. "Oh.  I hope not. I must hurry homo  then. I'll run quick the short way  Mrs.  Woodford;  thank you."  She left tho cottage, and struck  across a piece of common toward  the wood, scarcely turning lier head  wheo Mrs. Woodford called after hor  to offer an umbrella. Thc heavens  were now dark with gathering storm,  the cottage fire glowed redly from  the open door, lighting up the tall  oak-cased clock and throwing into  strong relief the figure of the. cottager in the 'door-wuy crying, "You'd  better bide,  you'd  better bido."  Swiftiy sho sped over the soundless  turf. Sho felt the hot glow from tho  lurid wall of purple storm advancing  against thc wind before her, and  quivered with the indescribable nervous trouble thunder always caused  her. It did not exactly terrify her,  it was simply intolerable to her  nerves. Lightning and thunder, together with tho oppression of air  over-charged with electricity, distressed and prostrated her; her. only  thought now was to gat hc-n:/c, whero  sho would throw herself into Sarah's  arms nnd bury he'r face. As a child  she had passed through many storms  with her head covered by Philip's  jacket and her face pressed against  him; her great horror was to be  alone in these nervous crises, when  tho toiich of some familiar and loving hand alone  soothed her.  She plunged into tho woodland, the  warning, "You'd better bide, you'd  better bido," of the hospitable cottager echoing in her ear. The sky  was iron-hued where it was not lurid  with .swift-gathering tempest, tho  brooding expectancy of tlie gray still  afternoon hnd changed to ono disquiet of imminent trouble; the long  grasses shuddered, the dry leaves  rustled anxiously and complained upon the trees which groaned as if foreboding-pain; cows ami slieep moved  restlessly about the pastures, birds  fluttered with anxious cries from tho  sore foliage, all the woods shivered  before tho impending terror. The  day was like Jessie's lifo.  She was too late to outrun the  storm, she felt herself drawn beneath the dark wings of it, the hot  breath of it lifted her hair and camo  iu fitful gusts through the creaking  trees, whirling clouds of sore leaves  hither and thither. Suddenly, with  a crack and a crash' and- a long  booming ronr, the awful thing burst  right above her head. How frail  sho was before this iron blast, and  how- futile her speed against the  rapid stride of  the tempest!  Some large scattered drops fell on  the dry yellow leaves she pressed on,  panting "and 'shrinking. She went  blindly, closing her eyes to tho dazzle of the lightning, hnd saw nothing  till the rustle of a quick step through  thc dead lcav?s and the sound of a  voice through tho storm made her  look up with' an involuntary cry of  joy  into  Claude Medwny's face.*  "Claude!"  she cried,  knowing   and  remembering  nothing   but  that     she  was safe  and calm  and happy after  all  the tumults and  trouble.

Upon my farm T practice mostly a  three-year rotation of corn, wheat,  and clover, with au occasional field  plowed and put in wheat the second  time, writes M. C. Thomas. When I  plow a field il is done as soon after  harvest as jiossiblc, using a jointer  on the plow to turn all the stubble  under, and my rule is 'to plow ns  near 6 inches deep as possible. As  the ground is plowed it is rolled  down, and at intervals of ten days  or two weeks I go over "it with a  spring-tooth harrow. If tlie weather is inclined to be dry this is followed wilh thc roller.  During the last few' years, rains  have been very light about seeding  timo. We must, therefore, , prepare  for sufficient moisture to bring _, the  wheat up and give it a good start  by having- n compact seedbed and  cover with a blanket of fine earth in  which to drill the wheat. In preparing ground for wheat, it is a  good plan to give'it one extra working after ypu think it is in the best  possible condition. All things con  sidered  corn ground, best. With this method  one breaking of tho ground gives a  crop of corn, wheat and clover,  which is quitc-uti important point to  be considered.  I check my corn and give it level  culture both 'ways, which is nil tho  while preparing a seedbed for the  wheat. The corn is cut, thc shocks  being 12 hills square. Care is taken  to havo tho shock rows straight  both ways. This enables ine to  work tlie ground both ways without  being compelled to .trust the shock  rows. I work up just as close to a  shock.row as possible, and then, by  goitig tho opposite direction, the  small space left between the shocks  is worked.  The best tool that I have ovor  found to prepare corn ground for  wheat is the common drag harrow,  which levels- and linos the surface.  Very often two workings with! it,  once each way, mako an ideal seedbed. I drill the same direction as I  harrowed the last timo, in order to  obviate Ihc^ trouble with the corn  stubble clogging the drill. In drilling 1 twist in around the shocks as  closely as possible. In finishing the  field, we go onco round for each  shock row, the opposite direction,  and drill the littlo spots by tho  shock .that could not be covered during the ' main drilling. By this  method, all the ground is seeded except thnt occupied by the corn  shocks.  possible, so that the muscle will be  developed. Wean when about eight  weeks old. If they have been properly fed, the weaning will not check  their growth in any way, and they  will be ready for the market when  nine to ten months old.  BEITAIFS   GEM   SEAL  IT  POULTRY  HOUSES.  If you wish to succeed witli your  poultry do not let your poultry  houses get in an unheal thy condition, but if they should get in this  condition, remove the fowls to temporary quarters where llipjvcan have  plenty of road dust, as this is a  necessity at all times of the.) year.  Sifted coal ashes, not wood ashes,  will  answer   the  purpose.  Remove all perches, nest boxes  and everything else in the house and  give thcm a thorough soaking in  kerosene oil, drying them in the  sun. Clear all thc dirt out of the  houses and there you are now ready  for disinfecting.  Fill an iron pot Willi shavings  soaked iu crude carbolic acid and  after stopping ull the cracks, set  fire to the shavings. Tn about an  hour's time the house can.bo opened  and aired.  Then beautify your poultry houses  give your fowls healthy quarters  and kill lice all at one time by  whitewashing.  A whitewash needs) to be "well  made to do the work, as it too often falls off in flakes after the wood  is dry. Slacken your lime in hot  water, and make it us thick ii possible, as soft soap; then tliin with  kerosene oil. Now you have a  whitewash that will both stick to  the houses and kill ihe lice.  Apply tlie -.whitewash while hot  and be suro that all cracks and  corners get plenty of it. Do your  whitewashing in the morning so that  by night the house will be dry and  comfortable.

Red     Cross Contributions     Stolon  and Replaced with Bricks. '  I am able to supplement the details sent you last week a.s to the  i gigantic frauds that are being perpetrated by officials of all classes in  connection with the conduct of the  war, writes a correspondent of the  London   Express.  I now learn that at the battle of  the Yalu many of tho Russian guns  lost wore of the latest pattern,  which the country could ill-afford to  spare. A telegram was at once sent  to the capital asking for a number  of similar weapons to replace them.  The message was forwarded to Warsaw, whore tho guns alluded to had  been sent several months previously  to be. stored. . N  ���������  The    -military   authorities  in     St.  Petersburg were surprised to  receive  "L V-5, the������".,,an.,������-[ seo*laB- a telegram stating that no such guns  were in Warsaw. Inquiries which  were instituted revealed the fact that  the guns had been sold to a big  iron foundry and had been melted  down, while thc head of the department concerned committed  suicide.  Not long ago a Moscow merchant  sont 5,000 vasts to the Red Cross  Society for the troops at the front.  Not hearing anything about them he  called to make inquiries and was told  blandly that the garments wero ' too  small and would be returned to him.  As they were not returned tho merchant went to the Grand Duchess at  tho head of tho Red Cross work, nnd  told her that swindling was going  on. " The lady answered that she  knew thi.s, but could not find out  any specific instances.  At tho suggestion of the merchant,  the Grand Duchess went the . same  evening to tho railway station,  whero a number of packages she had  prepared were ready to leave by the  train for the east. She caused  consternation among the staff by demanding to see tho contents. Wlien  the boxes were opened thoy were  found to contain bricks and stones.  Tho Grand Duchess enmc to St.  Petersburg and laid the matter before the Cyarina, who was induced  to go with her to the station. Several cases which had been packed at  'the palace with presents from tho  Czarina to the troops were opened  in her Majesty's presence, and more  t'hon half were found to have boon  tampered with, the contents ab-"  structed,-und- rubbish���������placcd_in_ their"  stead.

RAISING   PIGS.  ���������To-begin -with���������breeding-slock must  be selected, with considerable care.  Pedigreed hogs are considered best,  but to be most profitable they must  have first-class cure, be provided  with tho best of feed and shelter, and  not noglecled in any way. This,-of  course, calls for somo experience ami  ability on the part of the owner,  snys P. M. Davis.  Nex J. to the thoroughbred, the liulf-  brced is perhaps the best all-around  hog. The cross stimulates -vitality;  niul endurance in both animals. Do  not misunderstand mo. 1, ot course,  do not recommend indiscriminate,  haphazard breeding. If possible,  raise thoroughbreds, but if not, a  cross between some of the leading  breeds is very desirable, especially  for the .market.  The sow should have gooil length,  depth, strong bone, but should not  be too high on tlie logs. She should  bo at least 13 months old before she  raises her first litter of pigs, and  must always be kept continuously in  dry, comfortable quarters, convenient;  to a gruss .pasture,' and should be  given a variety of feed. A week before farrowing, she should receive  nothing but bran and mash, hut ull  slie will cat. '  At farrowing time, givo hcr thc  very best of attention and seo that  the young- pigs are promptly taken  caro of. Keep the sow and the pigs  in a warm place, particularly if the  weather is cool. Feed the sow sparingly for two or three days on bran  slop, to which a handful of middlings has been added. Gradually increase this and by the time the pigs  nre three weeks old tliey should be  givon some feed in lho way of slop,  made of milk and middlings. This  may be gradually increased nnd  coarse feed ndtlod, as tho pigs aro  able to take curo of it. This kind  of feed develops strong bone and a  thirfty constitution.

Chase's Ointment  It seems almost ludicrously impossible that the Great Seal of ling-  land should have ever beeu made to  servo the humble purpose of a frying-pan; and yet thi.s is only one of  many equally strango episodes in the  romantic story of the Seal which is  the "specific emblem of British Sovereignty."  Lord Chancellor F-ldon was so fearful that the Seal would bo lost or  stolen while in his custody that he  nover went to sleep without first satisfying himself that it was safe in  his bedroom. One night���������it was in  Tjiie year 1812���������he was roused from  his slumbers by cries of "Fire!"  Jumping out of bed ho snatched up  tho Great Seal and, rushing into  the garden, buried it deep in the middle of a flower-bed. His house might  bo burned to the ground, but at least'  hc would not prove unworthy of the  great trust which 'had been reposed  in him.'  Next morning, however���������so exciting  had been the experiences of the night  ���������he had :. completely forgotten in  what part of the garden the emblem  of Sovereignty had been hidden, and  it was only after'his ^entire household had hunted for hours that it  was at last run to earth. "You  never saw anything so lidiculous,"  he wrote later, "a.s seeing the whole  family down -the walks dibbling with  bits of sticks until  wo found  it."  Once at least the Great Seal has  been al th������  BOTTOM OF THE THAMES  and would be there to-day but for a  lucky accident. It was in 16S8,  when tho Second James was fleeing  from England and tho Princo of  Orange to France, in company with"  Sir Edward Hales. He had intended to take the Great Seal with him,  but as "ho was being rowed from  Lambeth to Vauxhal!, where horses  were awaiting hlni, another and bettor idea occurred to him. He would  fling the Seal into the river, and  that" would place it once for all out'  of reach of his enemy. So overboard the .Seal went, and for, some  weeks it lay "there, until by a curious chance it was picked up in a  fisherman's not and restored to the  proper custodians.  The ludicrous frying-pan adventure  befell it wlien in the custody of Lord  Brougham. The Chancellor "had gone  to Scotland for a short holiday ���������  seeing that ho could not take the  Seal on the Rhine trip he longed for  without putting it in commission at'  great cost to himself���������and he was  a guest of the Dowager Duchess of  Bedford at Rothiemurchus, whero he  kept his precious charge in his bedroom. Ono day tho young ladies of  the' house-party took the Seal from  thc bedroom and hid it. Brougham  was desperate when he discovered his  loss, and did not recover his peace  of mind until the pretty thieves  promised to lead him to it if ho  would consent to be blindfolded.  WITH HIS EYES BANDAGED  he was conducted to the drawing-  room, and there he discovered the  Seal hidden in a tea-chest. So overjoyed wns he at its recovery that  he consented to the young* ladies'  suggestion that they should adjouru  to thc kitchen arid celebrate the joy-  oits event by making pancakes in  tho Seal; and thus, amid much  laughter, the greatest emblem of  Soverignty in the whole world was  actually used as a pan in which to  fry pancakes. The Seal, it should  perhaps bc mentioned, consists of  two silver discs hinged together, so  that when they nre closed they form  a mould into which the wox���������green,  rod. or yellow, as the case may be���������  is poured. Thus it would make not  at all a bad substitute for the "common  or  kitchen"   frying-pan.  Many a iinic has tho Groat Seal  bcon taken to ihe House of Lords  and broken to pieces at the bar b.v  the hammer of a sturdy blacksmith,  amid  the frantic cheering  of onlook- '  jng_mo_mhe_!S._ This__wai:_the_fato_of   the Seal which fell into the hands  of tho Parliamentary army on tho  capitulation of Oxford in 1G4G. Three  years later the old Parliamentary  Seal which represented Charles enthroned on one side, and riding on  horseback on the other, was similarly destroyed to make way for tlm  new Seal with its view of the Housci  of Commons in place of the deposed  Sovereign. Richard Cromwell's Seal  was broken by the hummer in IGiilk,  and in the following year the Great  Seal of tho Couimonweult.h itself wus  destroyed in the same way.  oncb Tin-: si;al was lost  by Charles IT. in his flight from the  fatal field of Worcester; nnd onco  it was stolen by burglars from Lord  Thurlow's house in Groat Ormond  Street, but it wns replaced by a replica In the wonderfully short timo  of thirty-six hours.

"1 remember onco being  aboard a ship in tlie Indian Ocean.  There was ne'er a moon that night.  The ship rose faint nnd hushed to  the stars. It was ono hell in the  morning watch. Scarce nir enough  moved to Rive lifo to the topmost  canvas. A.s the ship bowed upon  tho light swell th'o sails swung in nnd  swung- out with a rush sound of  many wings up in the gloom. Vet  the vessel had steerage way in that  hour. Shall 1 tell you why?  cause I know!"  The grey-haired,     respoctnblo  man   closed  his  eyes   in  silence,  with  significance,   and,  after a  smoke,   thus proceeded :  "Some of the watch on  sprawled about in the shadow out of  sight, curled up, asleep. Only one  figure was upright forward. 'Twas  tlie shape of the man on the lookout.  "This man thus standing, by no  means asleep, yet with his head sunk  and no doubt his eyes closed, was  suddenly struck on the side of the  face by something hairy, damp, and  cold. . He sprang into tho air as  though ho had been shot through the  heart. Oh, heavens! Y.'hnt was it ?  A naked figure. shaggy as Peter  Sarrano, wild with hair, furious with  a grin, terrible with tlie red gleamo  the starlight flung upon his little  eyes. The sailor shrieked liko a  midnight cat, and fell in a heap  down upon the deck in a fit.  "The ship was in commotion in an  instant. Such a yell as that was  worse than the smell of (ire.  " 'What's the matter?" roared the  mate.  " 'Here's Kennedy in a fit, sir,'  sung out a voice.  " 'Is that all?' said the mate.   And  lie went forward to look at the man.  " 'It's a  fit,     certainly,'  said     he.  'Give him air, lads.      Got a drink of  . cold    water    into    his mouth.      It's  #pilepsy."

" 'He's mad,' thought the man, who  stepped, nevertheless, into the bows  and looked over. Nothing was to be  seen. Ho surveyed the ocean by the  light of the stars, and glanced  along the deck and up aloft, then  told the look-out man to go below  and turn in, and went aft, reckoning  tho thing an epileptic's nightmare.  - " 'Just then a catspaw blew.

It was an air of wind, anyhow, and someone sung out that the  ship was aback forward, on which  tho mate went to the break of the  poop, and yelled to tlie seamen to  trim sail.- Something went wrong  in swinging tho yards on  the fore.

" 'What nro yer  talking about?'  " 'I never saw tlie like ol" such a  thing!' said tlie male, in slinking  tones.  " 'Js it a man?" said the captain,  staring up with amazement, whilst  the seamen camo hustling close in a  sneaking way to listen, and the  Dutchman  drew   close   to  the  mate.  " 'It has the looks of a man,' said  the mate; 'yet it sha'w't be murder  if you kill  him.'  " 'She vos no man, sir. I vos  close. I vent closer don you.

"Tho captain Went swiftly to his  cabin for a binocular glass. The  lenses helped him to determine the-  motionless shadow in the crosstrces,  and ho clearly distinguished an apparently large human shape, but in  what fashion., or whether or not  habited, it was impossible to soo.  How had he come into the ship ?  The captain went on to the poop  and searched tho silent sea with the  glass with some fancy of timing a  boat wthin reach of his visionrNoth-  ing was to be seen.  "It got wind in the forecastle that  something wild, unearthly, hellish,  was aloft, and theTWatch below turned out, too restless to sleep,- and all  through those hours of darkness the  sailors  walked the decks in groups.  "Why don't the captain let me  shoot him?' said the second mate  at four o'clock. 'I cannot miss that  mark.'  " 'No,' said the chief mate. 'I've  talked of trying what shooting will  do. The captain means to wait for  sunlight. But how did it get on  board?' said he, sinking his voice in  awe. 'There's no land for hundreds of leagues.'  "It was not long before day whitened tlie east. And then, nnd even  then, what was it? Tliere it-sat. up  in tho crosstrces���������a hairy, sulky bulk  of man or beast, black; and the: creature looked hard down, whilst all  hands were  staring hard, up.  " 'Seized, if it isn't a gorilla!-'  said the mate.  " 'So,' said the captain, letting  fall his binocular. 'Look for your-  !self. Vet it's not a num. either.'  He burst into n laugh, as though for  relief. 'It's a huge hairy baboon, !  one of the biggest I ever saw in my  life. .He'll be as fierce as a mutinous crew, and strong as a frigate's  complement. What's to be done  with  him?"  " 'How in Egypt did he conic on  board?" said the mate, viewing the  beast  through  the glass.  "'By that, maybe, sir," exclaimed  the second" mate, pointing to some  object floating flat and yellow, faint  aud far out upon the starboard quarter. -���������  "Tlie captain levelled the ship's  telescope. 'A large raft.' he exclaimed, after some minutes of silent  examination.      'May be.'

Tho Chinaman is a complex problem, and it is not within tho scope  of tho Kuropenn to do justice to  any one sido of his character; but  we are i>erhnps���������thoso of us who  live in the Kast���������better able to appreciate his business capabilities, for  the reason that it i.s in- this capacity  Ihat we most nearly come into  touch'  wilh  him.  .Successful training is the aim and  ambition of the middle class Cltinn-  niati, and he devotes himself to this  end with an energy of which few  Europeans, with their many other  interests in life, are capable.  The greater part of my life having  been spent in the north of China,  says II. b'uli'ord flush in the Shanghai Times, it must be understood  that my remarks bear upon the northern native merchant, who is a  moro phlegmatic and cautious man  than his southern brother nnd thc  more typically Chinesa, in that lie  is less familiar with foreigners and  their ways.  The strong gambling instinct inherent in even,' Chinaman prompts  liim to a boldness in trade speculations which foreigners do not care  to emulate, and which���������uncombined  with that intimate knowledge of past  transactions and apparent intuitive  forecast of conditions governing  prices, exchange, northern and southern demand and supply possessed by  every native trader���������would inevitably  lead to disaster. The Chinese merchant, however, going on the broad  principle, which experience of years  lias justified, that continues intelligent trading iii thc staple exports  and imports will yield a return of  five years' profit as against two  years' loss, enters into forward contracts, purchases in large quantities  and stakes the greater part of  HIS CAPITAL AND CREDIT  on the correctness of his estimate of  the present, vis-h.-visj.the future, market, winning five times out of seven  una waxing prosperous on the fruits  of his bold reliance upon his business  perspicacaity.  The foreigner cannot hope to compete with thc Chinaman in his own  linos without adopting methods  which to the Western mind appear  unpractical and opposed to air business precedent.' The native does not  trouble about bank guarantees, delivery of goods against documents  antl accepted drafts, elaborate bookkeeping and fixed hours.  Dealing largely on the barter system, he delivers imports against exports, each firm making a memorandum'of the transaction in a rough  day book, without any bank intervention; and every merchant is prepared to do business at any time in  tlio twenty-four hours, at his' home,  his hong (business residence), the  tea shop, opium house, theatre or  public  bath.

Tt   was   impossi-  output  of oil  and  allowing  of a    reduction  in  the labor  HUMAN AND ANIMAL,  employed, as compared with thc old  process. There js still vast room for  improvement in this direction; but,  though fearless to a degree when, embarking upon enterprises purely Chin-  business integrity. Much has been  written and said on this theme,  and it is impossible to oxtol too  highly th'o absolute reliance that can  bo placed upon tho merchant's bond.  The writer's father, Henry E.  Bush, for over thirty years in constant touch with the merchants of  North China, never experienced a  bad debt in all his. many business  transactions with tho various' native  Hongs.  Dir Ewan Cameron of the Hong  Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, when speaking of his tenure of  office in China, extending over many  years, said he has never lost a cent  through his native constituents.  When it is considered that tho said  bank is> the leading bank in China,  aod the one with which native as  well as foreign merchants are the  most anxious to do business, it will  be admitted that no finer tribute  could woll be^ paid to tho integrity  of the native trader.  At the time of the Boxer outbreak  the Russo-Chinese- Bank at New-  chwang had over 5,000,000 taels invested in the native city, and despite the business stagnation resulting from the disruption of the usual  commerce conditions since that date,  that money has all been accounted  for.  The main cause of this admirable  state of allairs is. in my opinion, tho  guild organ'zation. Every merchant  is a member of a guild, every tradesman has his guild, nnd what tho  guild ordains is faithfully carried  out by each' of its members,  No Chinese merchant can afford to  lose caste, or "face," as he. would  express it. His "face" i.s literally  his fortuno. Were he to bc engaged  in any discreditable transaction, nnd  be reported to his guild, he would  lose "face," and with it credit, business standing end his entire clientele.  The Chinese merchant has a keen  sense  of  justice,   in   spite  of   the   fact    SLlgin-.  in which tlie assistance of foreign i gularly deficient in that respect; and  methods is a necessity. Jt is pre-| if the foreigner can but show that ho  eisely this seemingly contradictory j'has "li" (right.) on his side lie "Will  trait in his character which baffles I find it an unfailing argument, ono to  Ihe  majority  of   Westerners,   who   on-j compel   a   body  of  Chinamen,   for   tho  rail  as   though    handsomely  nwny  in  a bowline.

Meat  and vegetables can either bo taken  up by the fork and dipped into -the  condiment, or the point of tho knife  can be pressed into the salt, ��������� mustard, catsup, etc., and then applied  to the food on the fork.  Tlie same sort of "dishes' served at  a party supper arc suitable for  wedding-breakfast. Salmon or lo.b-  ster with mayonnaise dressing, cold  fowl���������roasted and boiled���������ham, tongue, pigeon.pic, pressed beef, chicken  salad or patties, lobster cutlets, oyster-patties, jellies, creams, tarts,  trifles, ices, etc., may be selected  from, and. of course, tho wedding  cake.  The knife should never be usod in  eating lettuce or salad of any kind.  With a very little practice one may  soon acquire the art of manipulating  an entire lettuce-leaf with the fork  and wafer alone. The salad is quite  as pretty, however, nnd much more  daintily eaten, if several lettuce-  leaves are placed together, and tlien  torn across in strips. A slight  twist, and tho prettiest ��������� of green  roses may be made to lino the salad-  bowl instead of the plain leaves.  CANNED  PINEAPPLES.  This is a vory delicious fruit to  can, is easily prepared and very seldom spoils. They should bo dead  ripe, and this is determined by pulling on the spines at tlio top of the  fruit. If they come out readily the  fruit is in a lit stage to be eaten.  They ure usually 90 cents nnd SI  per dozen at this season of tlie year,  and one dozen flue pineapples will lill  fifteen pint cans and have sufficient  syrup.  Begin at the large end nnd pare  them all over, not stopping to pick  out. the oyes until nil are pared. A  sharp pointoj knife is best for going  over them tho second time. When all  nre ready commence slicing from the  outsido towurd thc center. You will  find a sort of pith or woody stem,  hut thc pulp will cleave nway from  this,  for it has  no  value  whatever.  Put tho fruit in a preserving kettle  with siillicicnt Water to just cover  nicely. Cover closely and let boil  gently for about hulf an hour, or until it is easily pierced with a fork.  Usually one teacupful of sugar to a  pint can is enough, but depends  largely upon what degree of sweetness tho family likes. Lot this simmer for another half hour, when tho  fruit will be clear, something like  citron preserves. "Bo sure that the  rubbers are new, the tops in good  condition, and tho cans perfectly  clean and sweet, and there will be  no trouble with the keeping.  Pineapples are quite an inexpensive fruit for everyday use on the  table. Should be prepared in tho  forenoon if desired for supper, cutting it*"in fan-shaped piece.1) and sprinkling with powdered- or fruit sugar,  then cover closely and set in the icebox. It will make its own juice, and  whon one is fond of it it is delicious.  The only trouble is they are so  plentiful and cheap just when strawberries are in "full blast," and ono  is undecided which to invest in, so  it must ever remain a matter of  taste.  Pineapple shortcake is much liked  by many, and in the making the  same method obtains. They aren't a  very bad fruit to eat out of hand,  without a grain of Sweet, nnd I often  think that we spoil our taste by the  too lavish uso of sugar, don't you?  sodts mm* OOMEDI  HOW    CIVII.

A  deep chasm  thoy sent a joint note to the  bntants, warning t'hom that,  ever much fighting they choso to do,  they (the two captains) forbade them  to figlit in the town.  Tho Government and the Opposition botUi wrote back unanimously to  say that their Excellencies should be  obeyed; hut as tlieir Excellencies had  forbidden fighting in the town,  would they kindly say where tho  fighting might take, plnce?  ORDER Ol*1 FIGHTING.  Tho t<vo captains surveyed lln  country, and selected ii position  which would do for military operations, with rivers, hills and everything in its proper place.  Thoy then carefully drew up tha  order of proceedings. Thoy intimated that this position was to bo held  by the Government, that the Opposition was to retire a certain number  of miles and might then proceed to  tako tho position; but���������and thesa  wore tho rules���������if the Government  onco abandoned "tho position they  woro to be 'held to have been beaten,  while if the Opposition were unable  to take the position they must withdraw, but under no circumstances  would fighting be allowed in the  town if the position wero abandoned.  The Government might retire to  the fortress in the town, but thero  was to be.no fighting in the town,  or else tho guns of both cruisers  would be turned impartially on both  armies. " -  REFEREES REQUIRED.  The terms were accepted without  demur, the Government occupied tha  position, thc Opposition^withdrew,  and in tho course of two or three  days advanced to tho attack.  Thero was a terrific amount of  fighting, nn immense amount of ammunition was expended, and a great  many lives were lost. Eventually  the Government went on tlie run and  retreated pell-mell through tho  town into the fortress.  .'But the moment thc Opposition arrived nt the position . which tha  Government formerly held thoy ceased firing���������not one single shot was  fired after tho Government had abandoned   thc position.

'  All the shutters of all the shop*  were taken down, and " the population turned out and heartily cheered  tho referees. Then came the dclicato -  and diplomatic question of arranging thc terms of peace.  Tho two captains decided that in  respect of the men of the army of  the Government they must lay down  their arms, nnd should then be allowed to go free. Tho Opposition  accepted those terms without question.  They then said that the generals  of thc Government, and, he thought,  the Prime Minister, too, should bo,  allowed to leave tho country unmolested; but to that the Opposition  at first strongly demurred, thinking  that they ought nt once to bo shot.  But tho two captains pointed .out  to them that revolutions were a  flourishing .institution in the country, that there was no reason to>  suppose that this was t'hc last, and  that to shoot thc leader miglit be a  precedent dangerous to the leaders  of tho Opposition at some future  time.

It is safe to sny that ono woman  out of every four one sees on tho  train wears a travelling cont of somo  kind. The modern travelling coat  is tho grown-up daughter of the linen  duster, and in not only a much handsomer garment, but more durable.  The linen duster became a crumpled  rag after a few hours, while tho new  coats nro as .fresh at the end of tho  Journey- as at the beginning. One  of thc advantages of wearing them  is that a'very informal and comfortable gown mny be worn underneath.  Taffeta is perhaps' tho most popular  fabric, with pongee, in natural tones,  blnck and colors, mohair, crnvenctte,  nnd waterproof silk ns other favorites. Tho waterproof silk in shades  of navy blue, claret and gun metal  are often trimmed with pipings of  whito or gay pluid silk, and arc  most practical and serviceable garments'. They arc worn for raincoats  motor wraps and evening coats, as  well as for travelling. Following  the fashions in spreading skirts, all  the!now dust and travelling coats arc  voluminous in build. _ They flare at  .tho hem and have roomy sleeves, usually confined in an easy, wristband.  A vcry pretty travelling coat of  natural pongee has a yoke across tho  back piped with bright red. The  fullness is confined at the waist hy a  buttoned strap, this, too, showing  thc edge of red. 'I'he front of tho  cont, which falls .to thc ankles, is  loose and buttons well to the left  sido. The turndown collar, button  flap, and gauntlet cuffs are piped  . with  led.  Thc coats ore often made three-  quarters length. One of black taffe-  ������������������ta had pipings of bright plaid in  which green was lho dominant color.  This had n shawl yoke with points  in the front nnd buck and epaulette  points on thc shoulders. The tartan  pipings appeared en all the "Tolds,  uml thc large buttons and slashed  pockets were also piped with* the  color. A half-belt hold the fullness  in*tho back.  LIKE A MIEAOLE.  THE     WONDERFUL    RECOVERY  OF A NTPISSING MAN*.  h-  A GOWN OF DARK BLUE.  ,. An effective nnd quaint costume in  dark blue was worn lately by a society lady. Tliis is a deep sapphire  blue taffeta, the skirt being laid in  box plaits. These plait's aro about  three inches wide and shallow, and  are stitched at their edges so as to  form.a flat hip yoke some eight inches duep all around. The plaits terminate at the front on each side of  u nnrraw front panel, the panel also  blue, und giving a sort of old-time  effect. Thc skirt is circular and just  touched the floor. Tho bodice has a  bouffant and wide effect" at the  shoulder line, but tapers down to the  waist. Tabs of blue silk, the ends  embroidered in white, extend from  tho round blue s'ilk yoke well down  the front. These tabs are longer in  thc center than ut the sides. The  elbow sleeves are quite wide, and are  shirred several times through the  center in a vertical line from the  shoulders to "thc elbow, where thoy  end in a flaring frill elTect, being  edged by fine black silk braid, and  -finished by inner sleeves of fine white  mull and lace. There is a little  guinipc of whito mull and lace, and  the blue taffeta bodice overlapping it  is finished by veiy- wide black silk  braid. With* this" frock was worn a  round black straw cliapeau of moderate size, the brim encircled by a  wreath of pink roses and  buds.  WHAT TO WEAR.  For the cool summer gown pongee  is all-the vogue. It not only comes  ,in tlie natural color, but dyed in a  'variety of attractive shades. It may  ' be bought .plain or showing a dainty  silk figure-or dot. White pongee is  the pei-y latest thing not only for  the ' shirt-waist suit, but. for the  instep-length skirt and-coat costume.  ' To make ah old waist like new,  nnd to add a. smart touch to a new  waist, the shops are selling the most  attractive, of .1*830 yokes.

T  was  stricken     with   that     terrible  nflliction,     partial   purtilywis,   I     had  absolutely no power in my right arm  or leg.

I was   in  this deplorable condition when I was  advised    to  use Dr.   Williams'     Pink  Pills.   I sent for three boxes and beforo they wero nil used I could   move  tho fingers on my    hand, which   had  hitherto   been    absolutely   numb   and  powerless. ,-;     You can scarcely imagine my joy at this convincing   proof  thnt the pills were helping mc. From  this  on  I kept getting  stronger -and  tho ^control  of    my  paralyzed    limbs  gradually came  back    until     I    was  again  able   to  walk  about and  eventually,    to   work.

Eat     N'o Meat,  and Are      Strong  Mentally  and Physically.  The Japanese havo taught Europeans and Americans a lesson and  quenched in some degree the conceit of the Caucasian in his superior  capacity to do all things. - Evon in  thc matter of diet, our long-cherished theory that thc energy and vitality of the. white man is largely duo  to tho amount of animal food consumed,  must undergo revision. .  Tlie Japanese are allowed to bo  among the vcry strongest people on  the earth. Thoy are strong mentally and physically, and yet practically, thoy eat no meat at all. Thc  diet which enables them to develop  such . hardy frames and such well-  balanced and keen brains, consists  almost wholly of rice, steamed or  boiled, while the better-to-do add  to this Spartan faro fish, eggs, vegetables and fruit. For beverages, they  use weak tea without sugar or milk,  and pure water, alcohol stimulants  being but rarely indulged in. Water is imbibed, in what -we should  consider prodigious quantities���������to an  Englishman, indeed, thc drinking' of  so much water would bo regarded as  madness.

It  Is  Estimated  That   Over    ?10,-  000,000  Goes  for Labor  Alone.

Further than this, there are, on  tiie best authority, moro thnn 5,000  "seats of tho mighty," or at least  of tlie rich, the gardens of which  cost their owners anything almost  from $2,500 a year upwards into  the thousands; while there aro ns  many more which demand between  $1,000 nnd S������,500 a year for their  maintenance. On these 10,000 British gardens nn annual sum estimated at over Si0,000,000 is spent for  labor alone; and another $5.000,000  at least goes in thc purchase of  seeds, plants, and manures, and tiie  general upkeep of the gardens nnd  glass-houses.  To this must bo added the tens of  thousands of gardens of the well-to-  do classes on which sums' ranging  from $50 to perhaps 5500 a year are  spent, and tho hundreds of thousands of more modest gardens, eacli,  however, a source of pride and pleasure to its owner, which cost from a  few cents to a few dollars a year.  It is difficult and, perhaps, invidious to say which arc the most  costly gardens in Great Britain; but  among them are certainly those of  Trontham Hall, Welbeck Abbey, Lord  Bulo's gardens at Cardiff Castle, tho  world-famous gardens of Chatsworth,  und those of the Rothschilds, on  which gold has been lavished like  water.  One gets an impressive idea of the  extent of such gardens as these when  we hoar that thc kitchen-garden  alone at Welbeck covers thirty acres,  that the houses in whicli peaches,  apricots, and nectarines are grown  stretch for a quarter of a mile, and  that to stack them cost as much as  ������50,000. When a millionaire . sots  his heart on making himself a lordly  pleasure garden we may be sure that  he rocks  little of  thc  cost.  Not long ago a very rich man in  lhe North of England discovered that  one section of his gardens was rendered useless through exposure to  tho keen east wind. This was not  to _bo tolerated, said the great man,  and to keep the eastern blasts from  trespassing he planted thousands of  Scotch and Norwegian fir trees to  act as a screen, paying as much as  ������125 for individual trees. This little  whim cost him nearly 5100,000, but  lie. considered himself amply rewarded by seeing his wilderness turned  into a Paradise of flowers.  In gardens such as these it is quite  usual to employ as-many as seventy  or eighty men and boys, so that a  Cabinet Minister's yearly salary may  easily go in wages alone. It is said  that there are 900 country houses in  Great Britain each of which employs  a staff of over fifty men; of these,  200 employ between eighty and 150,  while sixty of them employ over 200;  and tho large majority of all these  male servants are gardeners of one  kind  or another.  In addition���������to the cost of labor  there arc repairs and alterations of  houses, furnaces to be fed, walls  built for fruit-growing, nets for protection, tools to buy and replace,"  and���������often the most costly item of  all���������seeds and plants to purchase.  Baron Schroder is credited with  having spent $200,000 on his collection of orchids, and Sir Trevor  Lawrence with an' expenditure of  ?150,000.  Mr. Joseph Chamberlain hns thirteen glass-houses containing, roughly  0)000 plants, many of them of great  value and gathered from almost  every part of thc earth where orchids  arc to be found.

Soldier,    Aged One   Hundred    a.'.vl  Three, Commits S';>.cide.  "Oh! Let mc die. I have lived long  enough."  In a state of collapse, feebly muttering this piteous appeal to the  nurse, a centenarian committed suicide in Festinoig workhouse, " England, after a life of adventure, romance and latterly of pitiable depression.  The story told to. thc Merionethshire coroner at the inquest at thc  workhouse was that the old man,  James Burns, whose age was stated  to bo 103, had given n fellow-inmate  sixpence-and persuaded him to purchase a knife for him, his own having been taken nway bn his admission into tlie workhouse.  ��������� Early on Friday morning, when  thc nurse visted'the ward she found  Burns dying from wounds in- the  throat, which had been inflicted with  tliis now knife, and to her muttered  his appeal to be left alone. Death  took place shortly afterwards. The  jury found that the man committed  suicide .while  temporarily   insane.  Burns 'was an Irisman who until  about 1S50 served in tho Navy.  Then he earned -his living as a hawker, and when nearly an octogenorian  he met a young woman, half a century his  junior,  whom.he married.  The couple settle down in Port-  madoc about ten years ago with  tlieir throe children, but in 1902 tho  wife and children left him for Chester. Burns was sccmingty averse  to thc removal, and quite courageously entered the workhouse. Latterly however, he had longed greatly for his family and had become  depressed.  "Your husband seems to have an  exalted opinion of you," remarked  the bride's aunt. "He says you are  his right hand." "Yes," rejoined  the young wife, with a sigh; "but  he's one of those men who never let  their right hand know what their  left hand  does!"-  and they also cleanse the exterior of |raT)ged in different houses according  their.bodies.,to o_n extent undrcame������;to t,,0 tj]ne of flowering, so-that the  of in Europe or;in America.

'   ������    KAINPKOOF  FLOWERS",  New -Invention   "That Will     Can*e  Joy  to  Ladies.  An English visitor to Vienna the  other day was not a little surprised  at thc seemingly miraculous immunity presented by the flower-adorned  hats of a party of ladies in the Prater, who had been caught in one of  the violent rain showers which often  burst upon Vienna.  Tho great park, that favorite resort of the Viennese fashionable  world, was crowded with gaily-dressed promenaders in their, loveliest  spring attire, when the unexpected  dolugc suddenly descended, with, disastrous results to all except a party  of four ladies, who, nevertheless,  had borne the brunt of the storm,  like everyone else, before they reached the friendly shelter of the Lusth-  ausJRestaurant.   :  . Removing their dripping hats and  simply giving th'em a gentle shaking  these ladies then resumed their  headgear, whereupon the flowers appeared oven fresher and more lifelike than ever. Tliey were, the ~ invention of a beneficent ���������" Austrian  genius, who deserves the undying  gratitude of thc feminine world for  his discovery, that celluloid, prepared in a special way, provides a material out of which the most delicate  artificial flowers of every kind can  be made���������flowers that are not only  almost undistinguishable from Nature's handiwork, but ore absolutely  uninjured by the heaviest downpour of rain. ..   ���������  "Why. that coat doesn't fit a bit,"  said Edgar's sister; "it's all waves  up and down your back." "That is  what I told thc tailor; but he said  you had to expect that because it  was a'surge suit!"  Many great discoveries havo been  made by accident and things better  than gold mines-have been' found in  this way, for- example when even the  accidental discovery that coffee is the  real cause-of one's sickness proves  .of most tremendous value because  it locates thc cause and- the person  has then a chance to get well.  ��������� "For over ,25 years" says a Missouri woman f'l suffered untold agonies in-my- stomach-and-even-tho- best  physicians' disagreed as to the cause  without giving mo any permanent  help, different ones saying it was  gastritis, indigestion, neuralgia, etc.,  so I dragged along from year to  year, always half sick, until finally  I gavo up all hopes of over being  well again.  "When taking 'dinner with a friend  one day she snid she had a new  drink whidh turned out to bo Postum and I liked it so well I told hcr  I thought l would stop coffee for  awhile and use it, which I did.  "So for three months wo had Postum in place of coffee without evor  having ono of my old spells, but was  always healthy and vigorous instead.  "Husband kept saying he wns convinced it was coffee that caused  those spells, ' but even then ��������� I  wouldn't believe it until one day wo  got out of Postum and as wo lived  two miles from town, I thought to  use tho coffeo we had in tho house.  "The result of a week's uso of  coffeo again was that I had another  terrible spell of agony and distress  proving that it wns thc coffee and'  nothing else. That settled it and I  said good-bye to Coffee forever and  since then Postum alone has been  our hot mealtime drink.  "My friends all say I am looking  worlds better nnd my complexion is  much improved. All the other members of our family have been benefitted, too, by Postum in place of  the old drink, coffee." .

"������������������'.-'  They    Flock    to England   Rather  Than Fight Japan.  Immigrants in hundreds arc arriving in London several days in each  week just now. Most of them come  from Russiu, and settle permanently  or temporarily, at Whitcchapol on  the Thames, says tlio London Express. To tiiis down-river resort an  Express representative went the  other day to spend an hour in the  Jewish shelter in Lcman-street. It  was full of stalwart young men who  had decided to servo the Czar in any  capacity except as soldiers. They  wero really a remarkably line lot,  and anybody with the slightest experience of Jewish immigrants would  have put down a high percentage as  butchers. He would have been  right, too; only these butchers .had  refused to butcher the Japanese.  They had como away from Russia  instead, and that not as single spies,  but in battalions. Here in England,  tho breath of freedom fresh in their  nostrils, they were quite willing to  talk about it all.  "Half of us," said one of thc  young mon, "had passports, and had  received leave to go on payment of a  fair price, the money falling into tho  hands of the police or'the" Red Cross  ltind���������I am not sure which. The  other half had to run tho gauntlet  of the frontier guards, and left two  of thoir number in hospital at  Memel suffering from bullet wounds  in a non-vital part. Crossing the  frontier is a dangerous business if  you hit on thc wrong kind of policeman.  "Then there were others who procured forged passports oil payment  of ������2���������one for tho police and one for  the forger. Again a few escaped by  way of tho Black or the Baltic Sea.  Six of theso became stowaways and  were suffocated by hiding too thoroughly beneath a cargo" of bides piled  feet high in a vessel's hold.  "The frontier, however, is tho favorite place for a bolt out of Russia.  Wc generally left in parties. Ours  wns 22- strong, and consisted of 17  Christians and five Jews. Wo marched through tho forests till dawn.  Thon we wore in Germany, and tho  thing was done. The government rewarded a frontier guard who had put  as bullet into ono of our party with  a shilling; if ho liad been offered two  the probability is thnt he would have  looked tho other way.  "All.along the borders there were  peasants who for a cousidcratioo  would lot us lie at tho bottom of  their wagons carefully hidden under  a load of produce while they went a  marketing in a German town. ' We  might get ' proded by an enquiring  bayonet; but if wc kept our mouths  tight shut we were sure to get  across. The main thing, however,  was to have money'with which to  bribe the police.  In Kharkov 12 men were shot for  preaching sedition and persuading  their neighbors, that it was a crime  to 'fight against tho Japanese. Tho  czar, in his innocence, has liberated  all thc political prisoners who were  ready to volunteer for the front, and  the results is that they are preaching a revolution at the seat of war  instead of at home  in  Russia."

And hc knocked, the parson's hat  off his head and hit him on tho ear.  The old athlete's spirit rose; the  science which had been learned in  earlier days and forgotten for a  quarter of a century was aroused:  and a blow on the jaw of tbat cowboy sent him sprawling in thc street.

The biggest blaze ever seen in Kamloops occurred last Friday night when  the   Kamloops     Lnmber    Company's  mill   was   totally   destroyed   by fire.  The Sentinel in  reporting the disaster  j'siy-s:      "In  a few brief moments the  the  earnings  nicely jp'anf,   representing   $52,000, went up  uiioplioiH'.     The ; ;n sirloke. and as   it wa.s only covered  by  iJSO.OOO insuraivcc, the  net  loss to  1,'ie   company   is   $'";!2,000 in property  destroyed   alone,   not     counting   the  f nther loss entailed 'by the enforced  'sir h t ti ffg^do wOT  here. In addition to the mill property  lost, over 100,000 feet of. clear cedar  and white pine were destroyed. The  origin of the lire is attributed to the  s.iatks from a passing locomotive.  Mr. .McCormick, the manager of tho  eompany. is not yet in a position to  say just what the company will do  beyond that they will rebuild either  here or Savona. the storage of logs  being mone easily managed at the latter point. "When rebuilt tin; capacity  of the mill will be doubled and will in  every way be. a more complete plant  that the one just destroyed."

Sept. 11���������ft is current talk  wound town -to-night  that, no matter  look   a j what decision the ministers may reach  than it   f.oi/inrrow, there   can bo no announcement,   of   dissolution   until thc return  o'.    His Excellency.    Constitutionality'  requires that when the. prime minister.  decides that  parliament should be dissolved, the solo prerogative of making  the dissolution remaining witb him, it.  must wait until   tlio  representative of  the   sovereign   returns  and   state the  reason   which   lias  led   him l.o lender  this advice.     II. is urged by some that  possibly Sir Wilfrid may have secured  the  consent  of tbo Oovernor-Oeneral  lo dissolve beforo His Excellency went  west, but this i.s hardly probable.  As Lord Minto will nol, return lo  the capital much before the end of the  month, there is, therefore, little likelihood of dissolution faking place much  before the beginning of October. |  This attraction is booked nt the  Opera House two nights, Sept. 22 and  23, and thej- should do a big business  as they justly deserve.

'This is where w>c  all laugh,' people were told oh"the bills  but ifshoukl have added 'all the time.
