Toronto, July IS.���������iMassoy hull was  packed to tliu doors Friday night by  one of the most enthusiastic audiences  that ever assembled tliere, on the occasion of Uie farewell reception by the  citizens to Lord Dundonald, lute corn-  uiander in chief of the Canadian  militia.  An address was presented to^ his  lordship. "When Lord Dundonald  rose to reply, tliere was an outburst of  applause. Again and again the crowd  cheered hiin, the band meanwhile  playing "For He's n .Tolly Good Fellow." When Ilie applause had subsided Lord Dundonald snid:  "I do not consider that it is necessary to trouble you with many words  with regard to the particular incident  whicli led up to rny-summary dismissal  from the command of tho militia.  Theic is perhaj).*, hardly anything  which more intimately concerns the  well being of/the nation than that its  defences should he placed in as efficient  cOrrdition as possible. * ,  "I was myself convinced that matters in this connection were indeed far  from satisfactory and I turned 0,11 the  searchlight to show the people of Canada that there was an evil that was  injuring their defence force. What  followed? 1) AH eyes were turned  toward the lit>ht." All saw the fwil  anrl realized that the-light revealed  what was true. But there is nothing  that -some people hate more than  truth, even though that truth may be  in tlieir own best interests.  "Some of, these have turned their  anger upon mc,* upon * the man who  was Jetting light into dark places.  People have been told that I was trying to dragoon tliem, endeavoring to  over-ride the civic "power, and acting  contrary to the spirit "of the constitution,'trlicn in truth it was not T but  others, wjio ' were' tramplirig'iipo"n the  spirit ���������. of Lhe constitution, that great  magmr/eharta whose essential principle is freedom and eveu-handed justice  to all nien.regnidless of political party.  All right thinking persons realize  the 'vital importance of non-interference with those officials who administer justice between man and man."  "When Lord Dundonald concluded  his speech there followed a scene  which battled desctiption. "The entire  assemblage made 11 rush toward the  platform to shake hands with Dundonald. He was hedged in by the  crowd and despite the efforts of his  friends to hurry hiin off to catch his  train, egress fiom the building was for  a time found impossible. The audience demanded that, the massed bands  should play on, which they did,  despite the'"fact that cheeis and  counter cheers drowned the music  at times.   >���������  Eventually, Lord Duudonald,bathed  in perspiration, was literally carried  out of the building to his cariiage.  Outside 5000 people had gathered and  the demonstration was continued. It  was with the greatest difficulty that  the police could clear the street for the  carriage to move on to the Union  station. ���������  On thc way to the station the crowd  whicli followed, filling the cstreets  brimful, was augmented until it had  trenched about 8,000 by the time the  depot had been leachecf.  ���������The crowd-folio wed-Dundonald-in to  the depot and although" an attempt  was made to check its progress before  the station platform was reached, the  ciowd surged against the 'massive  doors which, with a eracKling of bolts  and timbers, burst open, and hundreds  nf people were swept on with the irresistible forte of a huge ocean billow.  Fortunately within ten seconds after  Dundonald had set foot upon the  Pullman car the train moved out for  Ottawa. The crowd cheered to the  echo. Lord Dundonald was too.overcome by his experience to do more  than bow his, farewell. The crowd  followed the train cheeiing until it  had pulled ont of, the station yards.-.  It is stated that never in  of Toronto' has such a demonstration  been accorded a public liian except  upon the occasion of the departure of  Lord Diilfeiinj  Lord DundoiVnld was presented with  an address by the army and navy veterans at noon, lie was lunched by a  number of citizens.  In a talk   he   said a scheme was on  foot to organize a corps in the North  "West   to   be   known    as   Stratlicona  Horse, with  headquarters  where   Lord     Stratlicona  barracks for them.  Will Hold Sitting in Revelstoke  Mr. H. Floyd, secretary of the Revelstoke Board of Trade has received  tie following leltti* from AV. A. fial-  liher, M.P., announcing the important  fact that the Hallway Commission  will hold a sitting in Kevelstoke :  House of Commons,  Ottawa, July Ulh.  Secretary Board of Trade,  Kevelstoke, B. C.  Dear Sir,���������1 have arranged with the  member's of the Railway Commission,  who will  be  going on a tour through  the   "West   during   the  latter part of  July and August, that  they hold sittings at Nelson  and at Revelstoke.    I  would  ask  you  to kindly give notice  to all the Boards of Tr-idc in the different towns surrounding of this fact,  so that they may have an opportunity  of'meeting   the,- Commissioneis  and  discussing   the   question   of    freight  rates or any other question within the  scope of their authority.     No special  date can be fixed ns yet for the holding  of these sittings but you will receive a  letter from the Chairman of the Commission   advising  you   that   he   will  hold   such   sittings,   to    be   followed  afterwards by a three days' notice of  the date when the .sittings will he held.  I would like to see advantage taken of  this and to that end would recommend  that  all   association's  be notified and  also that this letter be published in thc  newspapers.  When you receive notice  pf the date it should-be wired at once  to   the   different   associations, or perhaps   it-   would   be   better   to have a  meeting of the Associated Boatds of  Trade to first discuss matters generally and, appoint  delegates to represent them at such fittings.  Yours truly,  W. A. GAT.T.IHKU.  A special meeting of the Board of  Trade has been called for Monday 1  next the 25th inst., at 8 p.nr., to discuss such matter's as may be. considered advisable to lay before the  Commissioners.

He will train for  t.wo weeks with Dan McLeod, ex-  chainpioii wrestler' of the woi Id and  D. A. .McMullen, the world's champion  all-style wrestler. With tho aid and  careful training of these two noted  men there can hardly be any  doubt as to who will win. McLennan  i-s in the pink of condition, and feels  confident of the result. The- match  will be pulled off at Brockttjn-Point on  July 30th. The Herald and his  many friends here wish him success.  Mr.   Fowler, Mining:. Engineer  of * Duluth, Minn.,   Visits the  Big   Bend���������Is' Pleased   with  Appearance of Camp.  Mr. Fowler, M. E., of Duluth, arid'  Jesse Bradley returned on Friday  evening from a three weeks' visit to  Ground Hog Basin, Big Bend.

On thearrival of  assaying apparatus Mr. Fowler will  assay the rock samples/ which he  brought down with him and will leave  again in about 10 days for the Bend  where he will remain all fall looking  over the properties thai are located  and being operated in the camp. On  heing asked his opinion of what he  saw in the camp during his first visit,  Mr. Fowler informed the HKltAi.li  that he was very well pleased with the  appearance of the district.  Accident to Mr. Sibbald.  The Herat..t> regrets to -announce  the serious accident that befell Mr. J.  D. Sibbald at McCullough creek, Big  Bend, on Monday morning last. The  "pafticulars'of the'distressing affair are  as follows: About 8 o'clock Monday  morning Mr. Sibbald, manager of the  McCullough Creek Hydraulic Mining  Co., was assisting,in the work being  done on -the property when the foreman, Chris. Richards, observed a stone  unloosen on tlie hill and come rolling  and hounding down the hill side. He  yelled to Mr. Sibbald and the other  men employed on the ground to lookout and Mr. Sibbald .turned his head'  to sec from which direction the driu-  .,���������  ger was coming when the rock struck  the history Ihim on the bask of the head, knocking him down. When the,meu rushed  to his side it was found he had received terrible injuries arid 'was unconscious. .-Mr. Sibbald was removed  to the cabin whore his injuries were  dressed bj* the men'with all care it  was possible to give. As soon as  possible after the accident Henry  Brown, packer for Goo. Laforme, was  sent on to Revelstoke for a doctor, and  made the trip from McCullough creek  to Revelstoke, a distance of'about 75  miles in lOj, hours, with a change of  horses at Downie creek. Dr. Graham  was calle'd. und with Mrs. Sihbnld and  W. M. Brown, president of the McCullough Creek Mining Co., started  by the s.s. Revelstoke early on Tuesday morning for the scene of the  accident, which was reached by Dr.  Graham at-1:30 in the afternoon and  by Mrs. Sibbald and Mr. Brown about  7 o'clock. The doctor found that  Mr. Sibbald was seiiously injured, a  compound fracture oi" the skull being  the result of the accident. It was decided to reniove-pytieiitto thc hospital  and tlio return journey was c Jinmenced  on Wednesday morning at 3 o'clock  and Revelstoke wits reached about  7 o'clock in the evening. The patient  wa.s taken diiect to the hospital where  he now lies iii a precarious condition,  all hough the' doctord* have s trong  hopes now of his ultimate recovery, a  fact which the Herald and the many  friends both here and throughout the  west will hope may be the case.  May Clash on the Red Sea-  Britain Objects to Actions of  Russian Pirate Fleets���������Situation is Critical.  London*, July 20.���������It is believed by  loading naval officers here who are  cognizant of certain sweeping orders  issued yesterday hy the admiralty that  the British government intends to  compel Russia to surrender the Peninsular & Oriental liner Malacca, seized  as a prize of war by the Russian  cruiser St. Petersburg and on route to  Lilian under a prize crew. It is also  generally understood in naval circles  that no other British ships will bo  stopped by the Russians after the  British cruisers reach the scene.  Admiral Freeiriantle, one of the  foremost of the British naval officcis,  said in this connection:  "Were I commander-in-chief of the  Mediterranean fleet I should lake the  law into my own hands and order my  ships to' escort all British ships  through the Suez canal and the Red  Sea and piotect them from any  interference, at the hands of the  Russian ships. I hope the government  will  adopt   stiong measuies in  . jt. ������*K fti fti fti t*t*r ftt fti 1*1*1 fti fti ****** fti ***** ***** ***** **^** ***** t't'i r*l*i t't'i 1*1*1 fl*l 1*1*11'  r 'X1 ty ty ty ty ty Vp ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty "  Hay, Oats, Bran, Shorts, Feed Wheat, ty  Flour, Roiled Oats, Etc.

These ships passed  through the Dardanelles as merchantmen and ought not to be recognized  now as warships. If they'came out  of the Black sea as warships Russia  has violated her tieaty obligations,  and in either case the ships have no  status and Great Britain should either  compel.Russia to recall them or take  the consequences. As admiral I  should not hesitate to, seize them if  they were not recalled."-  Once again the leading English  news'papeis editorialize' in the gravesL  tones on the Russian seizures of British vessels. Even the Standard, declares that tin; nation loolts.to the 'foreign office to take more effectual action  than the ordinary course of diplomatic  intercoiuse piesciibes. The case is not  .one for fastidious treatment. If nothing is done officially to relieve the  painful strain the irritation of the  country may grow into stubborn resentment. AVe cannot, foi1 the sake of  peace even, sit down under a series of  undisguised provocative measures.  A similar warlike tone pervades almost every ot her paper. The M0111 ing  Post says Great Britain cannot tolerate the seizure of the steamship  Malacca "except by the abandonment  of her self-respect as a great power."  The paper declares that either the  volunteer fleet steamer St. Petersburg  is an armed pirate or Russia has violated the treaty of Paris.  No-such bitter feeling has been  aroused in thc English press since the  German emperor's telegram to the  Boers. From all sides come urgent  demands that the government take  swift steps to ptevent similar occurrences by the volunteer fleet.  "Russian pirates," as one paper  heads it, take precedence over till  other news.      . -  Three-Cornered Fight.  Ernest Mills, of Greenwood, will be"  the standard bearer of the Socialist  party in _Yale-Carihoo constituency.

Resumes Operations after lying  Dormant for Six Months-  Rich Looking Quartz now  Being Mined.  The Goldfinch stampmill, which has  turned out several thousands of dollars  in gold bricks but which has been  lying dormant since last January, was|  started again today at its profitable  occupation, urrder the direction of J.  T. Vogler.  A number of mon aro working at  the property, operations being confined to a surface showing from which'  rich golSl-yiilui-s have heretofore b<*en  obtained...,. The ore, now being taken  out is fine looking' stuff and .it is  now almost assured that- the Goldfinch will turn out a creditable gold  brick at the end of the month.  A. F. Rogenbeiger, who is in charge  of the property, intends to thoroughly  exploit and develop it, and prove that  the Goldfinch is a pioperty worthy of  attention. -��������� Considerably more work  has been done this summer on claims  in (he vicinity of tlie Goldfinch than  during auy previous season, and all of  them have shown up exceedingly well.  These, developments will no *doubt  spur the Goldfinch people to greater  efforts, and it is quite possible that  within a short time, other pioperties  in that section will be the scenes of  active mining, and the thud of falling  stamps will replace the echo made by  the clash of hammer and drill as the  persistent prospector progresses hope;  fully with his annual assessment.���������  Camborne Miner;        . -    -  PROSPEROUS  From  the   Mines  to   Smelters  82.816 Tons  of  Ore Shipped  During  the   Month  of June  of This Year. o ���������  Ore shipments from Kootenay mine's  to smeltei-s total up to S2,81G tons for  the month of June this year as against'  j 03,179 tons shipped in June, 1903., This,  is a net increase of 10,637 tons'.

Tli? night was fine, cveir for San  Frimrrsco, the drinking saloorr wus  bright, antl everj body talked about  the title to tho great Washow silver  mini*. thou under trial in Virginia  City.  X-.iv a da.  The case ���������tvas a romance of speculation. Arr Indian, hunting in the Sir-  r-3S, liad fallen over a precipice and,  uprooting a young tree, discovered a  lode or" silver. At one of the mining  liars ho offered a piece of thc ore for  a glass of whisky, and three* luckless  prospectors, loafing by, hnd mr.de him  drunk over a game of euchre, then  cheated him out of the secret. Hard  up nnd ignorant of Its value, they  sold their ill-gotten claim for* .$30,000  to n capitalist, who floated a company afitj exploited the vein. The  silver proved rich in gold, thc shores  rose high, and the mine was appraised  at from S50 to S500,000,000.  Tiie vendors, now racing of their  bargain, get an astute lawyer to picfc  a flaw in tho deed of sale, and contested tire title of the company.  Shareholders, losing faith in their  property, took fright and sold out.  The shares had already sunk low, and  their future value turned on the decision of thc Court.  "If I liad first news of the verdict,  I, could make a big fortun?," stud a  stout man with a vulgar".face, mutton-chop whiskers, .and a huge diamond in his breast.  "I daresay." replied his companion,  a good-looking fellow with a cigarette'between his lips. "A stockholder' like you, Mr. Sharpey. But, if  it's a fair cpicstion, how would' you  mana.ee it?"  **T"a!" ejaculated thc older man,  with a sly smile, "I seo you want a  tip oc your own account. Well, why  not? A journalist like you, Mr.  Ogilbee A man who gets intelligence  of all sorts before the market. However. I don't mind answering your  question, particularly as I guess you  know pretty well. If judgment is  for'the .defendant the shares will jump  to a'ouble- or treble tlieir present  worth. All right. Keep what you  have, buy more, and sell on the rise.  On the other hand,'-if'judgment is  for the prosecutors, the shares will  drop; but there will he a reconstruction of the company and they will  rise again later on. It ain't so dead-i  sure as before, but still I reckon it's  -quite safe.' All right; Sell out any  shares you hold now. Buy Largely on  the'.'slump* and sell on the rise. Why,  there's millions in it!"  ������������������Well. I'm afraid your only chance  of getting. the earliest news is to  buy the first copy of our 'extra special' with a 'stop-press' telegram of the  verdict."  ������������������That's r.o use," replied Sharpey,  sipping his mint julep. "It don't  give time to buy or sell before others  know. But why is-it my only  chance?"'  "Because the editor of the 'Mercury'  has made' arrangements to have tlie  lirst messages in San Francisco. The  verdict i.s to be signalled from the  court-house to the telegraph office in  Virginia City.    You can't beat that."  A young man witli a black  moustache, a dissipated look, and  s-c-edy clothes approached the stockbroker.  "Halloa, boss!" hc cried familiarly,  ancl held out his hand. "Glad to  see you."  Mr. Sharpley nodded coldly, and ignored the proffered hand. The newcomer, a. little hurt, drew it back,  and rolled a jjtiid of tobacco in liis  mouth.  Mr. Ogilbee smiled and walked out.  '���������Well, and how are you, Jordan?"  eomnK-nced the broker, with a patronizing air.    "Have a drink?"  "O.iC," answered Sir. Jordan, sitting down on the vacant seat. "Waiter, a 'streak of lightning'���������smart!  "I know that chap Ogilbee," drawl-  ^ad^oi;t^J.ordan,-With a sneer. "Least-  ways I once met him, but he don't"  5-00-11 to recognize me now. Was a  telegrapher like myself onct. Guess  hc thinks me beneath him since he's  become a journalist. Or ji'r'haps he's  got wind of iny disgrace. Everybody  ruts me since I got tho sack for giving you tips ��������� and scraps of news,  boss."  "Cut what are you doin' just now?"  "Boin*? Why. fneaiiin' round' after  a job, an' can't get it. I've lost my  charactcr already, you see. Wouldn't  even give me a spell of extra worjs  on the wires at Virginia City during  this -Washoe trial. Operators rather  scarce, too, at present. I'm stony-  i>i*o'4e.  that's what  I am!"  "Pity you got tlie sack. Ydu might  have been useful to me at present."  "Hao*.-?"  "By giving rne news of tlie verdict  in the Washoe trial before anybody  else on 'Change gets it. Can't you  get a chum in the telegraph service  to let me know in time, or send rne a  wire?"  Jordan gulped down his liquor and  reflected  a  minute.  "I tell you they've all cut me.  They're too honest," said he at last.  "If yon can seo a way, I'll make  your pile."  ���������'You will? Why, that's friendly  now.*'  "Th'o luck's been .".gainst me, too,  of late, and I want n shove up, or  there might be a smash."  "How much  will you givo?"  "Oh, ten thousand  dollars."  " 'Tain't enough, boss���������not for the  trouble and the risk���������make it twenty  thou."  The figure did not startle the cunning broker. He wa.s 'prepared for  more.  "Henr!" he murmured, directing a  hesitation. "MintJ. I warrt the very  first news of the verdict. I want it  fifteen or twenty minutes before anybody else in 'lYSseo."  "I understand."  "I must tell you thnt Ogilbee's paper, tlio 'Mercury,' has luude special  arrangements to get tho first wire  announcing th'o verdict."  ���������'Boss, I think I can do it."  "Then it's settled. Twenty thousand  if you do  it."  "Shake!" said the ex-tclcgrnplior,  stretching his hand ovcr tho table.  "If yorr don't get u wire at least a.  quarter or* nn hour beforo the 'Mercury' yon can tor and feather me.  Whar d'ye want tho wire sent���������your  oilier or the "'"..change?"  "The Exchange. I'll be on the  watch   for  it."  "II'yo know what I'll do, boss?"  whispered   Jordan.  "Won't want to know," hastily answered Sharpley, "so long's I get the  news."  "Right you are. Then it's my  secret."  "A word will do. 'Prosecutor' or  'Defendant.' Why noj, 'Prose' or  'Deaf'? I'll know and others won't  bo sure. They'll think it code message."  "All right, boss: 'Prose' or 'Deaf.'  When's the trial expected to finish?"  "Thursday or Friday next."  "Good.     And when will you pay?"  "Same night, if you like. Come  to my GiTice���������no, don't do that. Como  here, and I'll hand ovor tho money."  "O.K. Same night, if I can; or tho  following night, if I can't."  messages were sent on. At ono  o'clock he began to work off the delayed messages, alternating tlie time,  and when that was dono turned the  switch to its former position, thus  restoring thc "through" circuit. Then  ho scaled the pole again, replaced tho  bridge-wire ovcr the gap, so as to  cut tiro fino wires and thc .apparatus  in the  shelter  out  of  circuit. Next  he carvfully removed the firm wires  from the Ijole mid the ground, packed  tho telegraph apparatus in his knapsack, filling it and tho pan over his  back, and destroyed other traces of  his presence.  "I guess I'll jest catch Hint train,"  he muttered, as hc left the cave.  ITI.  II.  Through' oiie of tlio lonely paradis-  es of the mountains ran the telegraph  and railroad from. Virginia City to  to San Francisco. A train front the  cast was rattling .along, the line.  When it was past a man stole out  of a thicket of redwoods and, looking  (.furitivoly around him, went up to a  telegraph pole. It was Jordan, disguised in the slouch hat:, red shirt,  and high boots of a gold prospector.  A pair of climbing irons, or "creepers," usod by linemen in repairing the  telegraph were fastened on his feet,  and after making sure that nobody  was on the railroad he scalod the pole  as far as the cross-arms. On the  lowest arm one of the wires ivas held  not by a single insulator like tho rest,  but a pair close together. The short  length of wire between them had boon  cut through, and a piece of similar  wire twisted about the ends of tho  gap so as to convey the electric current across it. Moreover*, two fine  wires insulated by silk of nearly the  samo tint as the redwood'pole were  connected to tho cheeks of the gap  and fastened by tacj<s with double  points along the arm. then down the  pole.  Apparently satisfied with his examination of this device, Jordan glanced at his watch.  "Ten o'clock," ho muttered. "1  guess the; trial's begun."  So saying lie untwisted one end of  the bridge wire from the gap, and  descended' to the ..ground.���������  At t?he foot of tlie pole tho fine silk  wires were, joined to a couple of  thicker wires coated wilh indiarttblicr  and hid'a'cn ? under the surface of trie  soil. Jordan, stooping now and then  to cover a bare placo with' earth, followed these wires nmongst the redwoods to a sort of cave dug out of  the hillside, under.... a..ledge of rock,  probably by some wandering trapper  or gold-seeker. Pushing aside n  blanket liung over the entrance he  stepped in. A telegraph "sounder"  was clicking in the darkness. He  struck a match and lit a candle sticking in a block of wood set on a-rude  bench'. Near it stood a pigmy or  pocket-sounder and various telegraph  appliances, including a switch and a  sending-key. A tier of shelves across  a corner of thc hovel carried a tow of  dry batteries and some cans of preserved meat.  "Ordinary business mess-age," muttered the operator, with his. ear on  the sounder and his eye on the connections of his apparatus. Thc sounder, it appeared, was in circuit with  the cut wire on the double insulators  by the loop of small wires from the  sides of th'o gap, so that messages  from Virginia City would pass  through it and "speak" thoir contents on the way to San Francisco.  ''Halloa!"    he .suddenly exclaimed,  pricking up His cars.     "The trial   at  last^  Inscriptive report for the 'Jrcr-  "cur.vr'i^"l"udgS~Hallidie-dolivering ver--  dict.    Guess that'll take some time."  Jordan laid a note-book and pencil  on the bench', and lighting a cheap  cigar began to smoke.  "Rare long message," he muttered  at length. "I seo how it i.s: tho  'Mercury' has got the wire and means  to hold it until the verdict, so's to  keep anybody trlso getting it. Pretty  smart, I reckon. Wai, I've jest to  let thc thing run through, nnrl watch  [for the verdict. Hope it won't bo  jlong, that's all. W,ant to sec Sharpey to-night if I can. Must cl'ar out  of  'Frisco noon's possible."  Ho began t'o wall? up and down tho  hut to pass thn time. By-ond-liy he  stopped to listen.  "Time to get ready," said hc, turning tho switch so on to break the  loop or "through" connection of the  wire and put one terminal of thn  sounder to earth. Messages from  Virginia City now went through thc  sounder but no  further  on.  "Yep!" hc ejaculated in thc stylo  of a cowboy as hn grasped the sending key, now in circuit with the battery and thn San Francisco portion  of line.    "Here it comes."  "12.35 p.m. San Francisco 'Mercury.' Verdict for defendants," rapr  ped out the soander.  "12.35 p.m.       "VV. Sharpey,     .Stock  Exchange, San Francisco.

"Wai, I reckon I'll  l have a high old time of it now."  I    Hc glanced at liis watch.  I    "I'll givo Sharpley till one o'clock,"  he.     muttered.     "That's  cl'nr  twenty  | minutes.       Halloa!     another message  'ahout the verdict."  |    lie snatched hi.s pencil and scrawled  ithe in''s;.iage in his note-book.   Others  followed, and    those    relating to the  verdict were kept back t������.iile' ordinary  "I'vo como from tho 'Mercury,' "  said Ogilbee to the manager of the  telegraph office in San Francisco.  "\Yo in-ranged to get first news of  the Washoe verdict from Virginia  City, and wo got a telegram sent at  1 p.m., brrt we find thc verdict was  given at 12.30 p.m."  "I'erhups other messages got in  front,"  replied thc manager.  "Can't see. how. Our man was to  hold tho wire till the verdict was  sent."  "Is that so? Leland," said tho  manager to an operator sitting at his  instruments, "get mo the frle of Virginia City message;?."  Thc manager glanced through   it.  "You held tlie wire till 12.35, whon  there's a telegram to a stockholder."  "About tho trial?"  "Only the word 'deaf.' Might be  code. Might stand for 'defendant.'  Then, till ono o'clock, there's only a  few ordinary messages. Well, that's  funny! Still, our office .in7 Virginia  City is not near the court-house."  "We employed signallers."  .   "Is that so?    Leland, just ask Virginia  City     when   the  last   'Mercury'  message was. sent."  ���������"12.85,".''conic  the answer.  ".lern.srileni!" exclaimed tho manager. "Ask if hc don't niean the  Sharpey message."  "Sharpey," said Ogilbee, tinder his  breath.  "Says he don't know anything of  Sharpey message," replied Leland.  "Who's on thc wire?"  "Cummins."  "Been on  all the time?"  "Well, p'r'aps not," answered tho  clerk. "Now I tliinkoof it, I noticed  a change of hand on that very message, and tho signals got weaker."  "Well,.couldn't you tell the hand?"  "No. sir; but it seemed like Jordan's."  "Joi'dan's!'-.' The discharged operator,  you  mean?"  "Jordan."   said   Ogilbee.     "I  think  I .''know  that  fellow.     I recollect seo-  ng him  with     Sharpey     thc      other  night."  "Sure?" ejaculated thc manager.  "Leland, bring that photograph of  the staff. Now, sir, which? is Jordan?"  "That," replied Ogilbee, pointing  him out.  "The plot thickens," jerked out  thn  malinger.  "P'r'aps they took him on for the  Washoe trial, arrd he's played into tho  hands of .Sharpey..'' We suspected  him of doing it before."  /'I recollect that Sharpey xvas  anxious to get first news of? the verdict, and I was fool enough to tell  him of our plan."  "Ah!" exclaimed the mannger. "I  sec you don't know him. .Leland,.'ask  if. Jordan's.at Virginia City."  "Cummins says 'Xo,' "^was tho answer. "Been at the wire himself sinco  noon."  "Jerusalem! Signal's weaker, you  said?"'  "Yes.   sir."  "Seen Jordan lately? Know whore  he lives?"  "No sir. He left my boarding-  house after his discharge. Saw him  on the street the other day. Didn't  speak."  "We must find out. Looks like a  casr* of tapping thn wire. P'r'aps hc  did it from his room in some attic,  p'r'aps he. wont into the country.  Send a service message to all stations  asking tho linemen to go over the  wire to Virginia City for tappers and  I report at once. Kow, Mr. Ogilbee, I  think  we'd  bettor put thc  matter    in  the--hands o������_rZinkerinn _nnil   engage.  detectives."  IV.  In a far corner of the drinking saloon that evening sat Mr. Sharpey,  with o. cigar in his mouth, a juley on  the table, and a newspaper held in  front of his faco.  "Wish 1'e'd come," said be, under  his breath, as hn looked ovcr the  top of tho journal  at the door.  A tall gentleman of correct military  aspect, entered and found a scut at  onu of the tables near hinr.  Presently Jordan enme in and, looking hastily ovor thn saloon, threaded  hi.s way to Sharpey and flung himself into a chair. Hc seemed rather  worn  out.  "Wai, hiow goes it?" he inquired of  thn broker.     "O.K.?"  Sharpey answered by a wink and a  slight nod.  A look of intense relief and satisfaction came into the eyes of thc  operator.  "Waiter!" ho called, "a bottle, of  champagne. I'm as dry ns Death  valley."  Just then Mr. Ogilbee and two Oliver gentlemen with him entered the  saloon and seated themselves beside  tho doorway.  Tho champagne wns brought.  "You pay for it, boss: I'm cleaned  out," snid tho operator, swallowing  down thn winn like water. "Now  give me. a smoke.    I'm dying for it."  Sharpey took out his pocket-book  and paid thc waiter; then offered his  cigar-case to Jordan.  "Put your hnnd under the table."  hn whispered,  as. Jordan  chose  a  ci-  Knr-     ,  'Jordan stiieS tlio cigar in his teeth.  Jigbtnd  it. and blew a great cloud.'  "Ah!" ho ejaculated, with''en air -if  satisfaction, "I begin-to firel Irirttn*  rrow."      Then,    carelessly, as though  by chance, he let his arm drop on his  knees and reached under tho table. A  bundle of notes touched his hand. He  grasped and thrust it into tho pocket  of liis trousers.  "Guess I'll git now���������first train  east,"  whispered  Jordan.  Sharpey nodded.  "If anything bad happens," he said,  in an undertone, "mind yoir don't  apl it on mo. ' I don't know what  you've done,   you   understand. It's  another ten thou for you when you  get out of tlio scrape."  "O.K. I understand, boss. I'll  keep my mouth shut ir" I'm caught.  I'll git you olT, you Irot. I do. Wu',  so long, boss," he added, in a familiar tone.  The operator turner! to leave, but  tlio luilitcH'y man sturtcd ii';l ancl confronted him.  "One moment, sir," he said, qrritn  civilly; "your name is .Jordan, ain't  it?"  "Wai, an* if it is, what's that got  to do with you?"  "I've a warrant for your arrest."-  "What for?"  . "Tapping thc wire."  "Woll, I'm blessed!" exclaimed Jordan, fairly astounded, th'r-n, recollecting himself, ho burst out: "It's a  lic!"  "Oh, no it ain't," replied the detective.     "Wo hold proofs."  "What proofs?"  "Well, it's rather a long story, but  you forgot some details���������trifling details. You forgot that a timed copy  of messages is kept, at thn sending  station; you forgot that a fellow-operator could recognize your hand of  signalling; you forgot tliat you were  seen witli Mr. Sharpey here; you forgot to remove the double insular  from tlie wire;, you also forgot that  Pinkcrton's detectives are-round. Now  just come-quietly .-Willi mc and don't  make a fuss."  "All right, Cap. T guess it's no  use,"  ejaculated   Jordan,   bowing    to  his fate.  . # * * # # *  The accomplices wero tried. Tho  broker (witli the connivance of Iris  ally) was able to show that he did  not know how ithe news was got,  and acquitted, but the /operator was  found guilty and sentenced to five  year's imprisonment. On his release  he claimed his $10,000 and got it.   __4 -.  IEISH   CONSTABULARY.  Claimed  to   "be  the   Finest     Force  in, the World.  The Irish police cruno into existence  in 1814, and in 1807, in recognition  of its services in the Fenian rising,  was honored: with tho prefix "royal."  Its present organization dates from  1835. The : officers (country and  district inspectors) arc mostly recruited from the same class as the officers of the army, wearing uniforms  very similar to those of the rifle regiments. Under every district inspector are a certain, number of head  constables, of superior education, all  of whom. Havo risen from "the ranks  dangerous, duties"of the force iii connection with evictions, the fact that  the rank and . file themselves came  from the tenant farmer clnss is an  instructive illustration of 'the admirable discipline which characterizes the  whole body. At tho very timo when,  some of these men were engaged, in  eviction duty their own kith and kin  were being evicted in other parts of  tho country. But, on ono memorable  occasion, discipline was 'overcome; by  personal feelings. While a column.of  armed police was inarching away from  the scene of somo evictions7'1 five of  the men suddenly fell .out of the  ranks anrl threw down their rifles.  Thr3 was.,intended to be a signal to  others to? do the same. But the remainder refused to follow, and the  mutineers were promptly arrested and  duly  punished.  Another' characteristic of the men  is a sense of dignity, which precludes  their ever accepting a "tip." No Irishman would ever think of offering  ono to a policeman.  Tho training of tlie force consists  not only of company and battalion  drill and the use of the carbine or  short rifle, but also of periodical  searching test examinations as to  thoir legal -powers aiid how they  would act- in various contingencies'.

Ho rodo  all tho long, long way in tho milkman's cart, and he thought ho yjas  going to have a beautiful time. But  when he had a fow minutes at his  grandmamma's, ho began to fool very  lonesome.  Tho grandmamma lived in a littlo  red house with a flower: garden anil  a farm, and fields and fields, and an  attic,7 and a hammock' on the piazza.-  But the littlo boy was lonesome. Ho  sat in thc hammock and kicked Tfith  his new shoes and several large toaTS  dropped down on his ruffled bloUso  nnd took out the starch. He waa  sorry that-he had come.  Just as he was feeling so very "unhappy, tho grandpiamma's large  gray tabby, cat came purring up ;on  the piazza. She rubbed against tho .  littlo boy's legs, and sho said,  "What's the matter ?"  "Oh, I'm so vcry lonesome," isaid  tho littlo boy, ������������������"aren't you ?"  "No,, indeed," said the tabby .cat.  "I have too much to do to think  about being lonesome. You JOst  como around to the barn and -soe-  my kittens."  So tho tabby cat led tho way to  the barn, and: the little boy followed  after, sobbing every step of tho way  and saying, "Boo-hoo, boo-hoo."-  The tabby cat made him climb up  the ladder to the hay loft and there  he/saw' three little white kittens, and  three littlo gray kittens. Oh, they  were cunning, and they had tlieir  faces washed, and they aliased their  tails, and they' rolled over and over  in tho funniest way; and tho .tabby,  cat sang to them.  "Purr, purr, mew, mew !  We never, could cry with so much to  do."  Tho littlo boy forgot-to cry for a  minute, watching thcm, but' pretty,  soon he sat down on the top of tho  ladder nnd began to boo-hoo again.-  As hc. was sitting there, a nice fat  spider crawled up beside him and  said : "What's the matter, littlo  boy ?"  "Oh, I'm so lonosomc,'boo-hoo'.l"  tho littlo boy said. "Aren't you  lonesome, too ?" ���������  "Lonesome, dear no," said the -old  spider. "I haven't time to "be'.'"1  Then she began to make a web from  the top of the.ladder toJtho highest  barn window. When sho came to  tho top of the window' she hurried  to tho ladder again with the spool  of thread which she carried in her.  pocket,' singing all ..the day : ,  "Ovcr    and    under, "   through     and  through,  I never could cry with so much   to  do."  The littlo boy forgot to cry for *a  while, but beforo long he.lay down  in thc hay and squeezed out two-  tears. - He ' was just beginning io  boo-hoo when hc spied a little mud  house at , the lop of the eaves. ' 'A  mother swallow flew out, and said :  "What's the matter, little boy, 1"  "Oh, I'm very lonesome," the little  boy     said.   .    "I     suppose  you-are, '  too."     " . 3     .,:'  "Not' at ������������������ all," ��������� s'ai*,������l the mother  swallow. "Don't you/ seo how busy  I am'?"- The little lidy watched and  ho saw she was flying inland out of  tlio barn door, bringing >vet mud in  her bill. Then she^lew out tho door  for-morc-mud.-singnig-all-tho-wciy, :���������  "Nests and eggs, and babies, tap;  I. never could cry with no much lo  do." '"  '  The little j boy was beginning .to  feel a mito lriappicr now: He climbed  down tho.ladder- from the loft nn'd  went out irito tho orchard. He sat  down in - tbo grans and ato a large  red itjiple. ' When there was nothing  left but'the core, he remembered that  ho waft "lonesome, and *ho cried ono  tear <"on his ruffled blouse. An old  mooly cow who was all alone near  by, eating grass, camo up closo to  him and said : "What's thc matter,  little, boy V"  "Gh, I'm so lonesome," said the  littlo boy.    "Aren't you 1"  "Bless ine, no," said the mooly  cow. "I'm too busy. Don't I have  to chow nil day to mako,-.: cream -and  ���������milk for you and when it conies 4  o'clock: don't 1 have' te. walk w-ay  down to the bars and'get milked?  J'in doing something all the, time.  "Croam    for   butter    and    custards,  moo-o !  T never could cry with   so much   to  do."  The little boy stopped crying for  just a minuto and then he heard hia  tlnar grandmamma calling :, "John,  John; coino into the kitchen a minute."  So he went into tlie kitchen ?nhd  I his dear grandmamma asked him lo  shell some round green peas into a  bright lin pan. The little boy '.sat  down in the rocking chair, innd ho  played tho peas wore bullets rattling  against a fort as they dropped into  the tin pun. When the pens wero:all  shelled, his dear * grandmamma gava  him a bright cent. He went out  and called the tabby cat and "thoy  walked together, down the rond -..to  tho store and bought a peppermint  stick. ''.Afterward' whon he sat -on  tho porch eating the peppermint  stick he decided that he was hot a  lonesome little boy any, long*?'.

Kennedy, thnt really created Simla.  One could pay no greater tribute to  nn author than lo make tho long  unbroken journey from Calcutta to  SUnla. After heii'g there one has a  new understanding of "around .lako"  "ices at LYllili's" nn'd "under tl.e  deodars," and has mastered such impressive looking words as "jimparr-  nies,*' "khilmagais" and "shikar-  rls." writes an Ante lean correspondent.  Until,wc arrived at Kalkn the only  diversion was the government interest in our health. At different stations liim Eurasian girls in whito  swooped down on our wrists to  make sure wc wero carrying no  plnguc. Tlie celerity of the Eurasian, though, was nothing to the export handling 'done by the young  doctor who wont down the rows of  lined up natives, han'd over hand,  like  a swimmer.  In India it takes a man and a  woman to 'do almost everything, on  account of the sacredness of our sex.  This lins been a great boon to the  half caste women who are employee!  by the Government when a native  woman enters into any matter*. It  indeed affords almos-t tlie only stand-  in the unfortunate Eurasian has.  At ICalka. where the railroad seemed to be lire'd climbing, we took  tongas for Simla. Tlie tonga is a  two wheeled cart Willi n. canvas  rover. Jt has no springs, hut it is  so' weil balanced that il is easy  riding. There are seats for only  four, and these sit two by two, back  to. back.  The mail tonga was full.   A young  Englishman approached me an'd asked if I would take a tonga with him.  "Perhaps I can get a third, and it  will be cheaper,"  ho said.  He got a third, a. high officer in  some rajah's household. The third  sat wilh the driver, an'd the Englishman and I sat with our foot braced  against llio tailboard with" tlie plain  of India spread out before us.  Where tho English go there aro fine  roads. In limes of stress the natives  are put on to public improvements.  This serves two purposes: tlie English arc opposed to charity in India  and the country is improved.'  Times of stress are frequent, an'd  tlie roads superb. Every break is repaired .Immediately by the hill  people I  It was interesting to see a la'dy,  the rims of her cais festooned with  silver rings, her face half obscured  by nose rings'and bangles - with  jewelry. disposed on lier arms an'd  ankles, seated by the roadside  breaking stories witli .vigor an'd "precision. Tliesc hill people are Mohammedans, larger in person and  with a freedom of manner and car-  liage in striking contrast with the  scrville. weak bodied inhabitants ot  tlio plains.  The road climbs through layer aftor layer of the foothills of th'o Himalayas for a 'distance of fifty-eight  miles. This is accomplished with  twelve relays of horses, fino fellows  kept in perfect condition, cantering  ns gayly up the mountain slopes as  if on tlio  level.  It wa.s a wonderful ride, the sun  shining ' brilliantly and beautiful  scenes unfolding at overy turn. T'^e  hills convey no sense of the tropics.  The ' buttressed slopes are covered  with  velvety  gross.  The "deep fertile valleys aro terraced with cornfields, cactus crowns the  barricades at the sides of the roan  to keep us from falling down hill,  and then gives way to tho wild-  ioucli-mc-not, four o'clocks, and the  jimpson weed, which in every country greet: one like an old friend.  The halt in the journey is nia'dc at  a dak-bungalow at Solon, half way  up. Here we paid eight annas for  the privilege, and nix annas for afternoon tea���������28 cents of our money.  The English seem to have thought  ��������� of���������everything These -dak-bungalows  belong to the Government, and the  weary mini may rest for so long as  a week at a rupee a dny.  But whatever tho time he elects to  f>tay ho must record in a book tlio  moment he arrived and the moment  ho left, and thc sums ho paid for his  comforts. In tliis way tho Government, which loaves tliere only a caretaker,  keops trade of its pro'lils.  Tlio first view of Simla is enchanting, Jt is apparently on the next  mountain, tho second turning to the  left. It is in fact eight miles away,  iwoliod on a ridgo connecting two  peaks, and beyond lie the snowy  peaks of the great range  The Himalayas are unwooded. But  Simla peeps out from the tall, dark  firs, called deodars, cresting the  ridge, wandering down th'o out-lying  spurs, and up ^'tho adjacent peaks.  fn summer it ia a town of .'10,000  inhabitants, and tho home of the  .Indian Government for the greater  part "of the year. Tho night was  'about to descend.. when wo clattered  under the deodars. The lute dinner  whs  approaching.  Wu met Mrs. Hauksbee as wo strolled up to the hotel. Slro was leaning back in her rikshn wrapped in a  wliile satin cape, lier eyes meditatively lowered beneath well kept  fi luge���������for the fringe prevails in Simla. In another riksha was presumably her husband, but I recall that  it was not usually her husband that  accompanied  Mrs.  Hauksbee.  The outward pliuses of th'o social  organiz.ir.tion nt Simla nro easily  mustered.

Tho  women complain that after dinner,  seated on a sofa, he sends for those  he desires lo talk to to be brought  to him. No other Viceroy ever put  on. such lugs.  Officially, also, ho is not liked. He  litis had the vice-regal lodge put in  telephonic communication with tlie  Government offices, and hns a nasty  wny of calling them up about 10 a.  in- This obliges trio unfortunate incumbent lo be on han'd or take a  wigging. Nobody ever heard of being nt one's ofllce at such an hour.  Tho vice-regal lodge dominates the  town. It is at one enU of tho ridgo  and includes the prospect of tho  snowy range of the Himalaya:),  which ls the pride of Simla. As a  par t of tiro landscape with the viceregal banner flying it has castellated  effect.   This is lost on nearer view.  Tlio cntracc to the grounds is only  nominally barred by a guard of  Sikhs, gigantic fellows resplendent in  red and gold. A further ascent  reaches the spacious lawn.

Sho woro a dove colored  gown with a largo hat covered with  lilacs and violets, looking somewhat  delicate but very handsome.  Th'o vice-regal party is frequently  in evidence, preceded always b.v the  galloping lancers, pennants flying.  My own liksha had to got out into  tho mud for them.  The Viceroy and the Lieutenant-  Governor aro the, only persons allowed to drive at Simla. The rest of  tho world rides or goes in rickshaws.  The amiable wifo af a chaplain to  ono of the Scotch regiments���������the  Gordon Highlanders, in fact���������had  not been able to understand why any  traveller should have vis-itod such an  out of the way place as Manila.  The centre of interest at Simla is  the library. It serves as ,Simla's  casino. Here aro always rows of  rickshaws drawn up. and scores of  jimpannics chattering like magpies,  groups of women, civilians, officers  exchanging gossip, and all that" sort  of movement ��������� characteristic of a  town of leisure'and social functions.  At the moment an art exhibition  was in progress. It was English  and amateur, but carried on with  tho .dignity cf Iho "Royal Academy.  At the library " aro not only tho  books, but the "dances, aud tho next  week the war game was to bc played   there.  But the charm of Simla is 'its  'drives. Tliere are miles and miles of  these -fine rickshaw roads, 'terrace  above terrace, with by-ways leading  lo tlie fancifully named -villas ticked  under tho slopes. Each of .those has  ils name and the-name of the resident in big, easily road letters on  sr-ino convenient tree, with a rccop-  lacle for cards or- perhaps some more  timely no'tico, as "Mrs Hauksbee is  not receiving."  The ride of ronown is "around  .Tako,"- the fir-crowned peak, 8,000  foet high', at the opposite end of tho  ridge from the vice-regal lodge. In  tlie afternoon ono moots here "dowagers, in rickshaws, the younger peoplo mounted on huge Australian  walers, children' on ponies���������that sort  of procession in .which the English  takes precedence of all other nations.  On the far sido is the snowy range  and the road that leads to Mashola,  where Simla picnics. We meet 'the  Viceroy's household en routo there  "to get away over Sunday," and my  Scotch - friend said "I hope not - to  avoid church." On another spur  rises Elysium Hill, with villas clustering under tho deodar's and a background of snow.  ---OiiC-of-tho_ch'nrius-cf-Siiiila-is-'th'e.  flowers.

Gen.      Boulanger's  Downfall���������Secrets Won From British  Officers.  In nearly every instance of treachery and corruption resulting in a  public scandal during the last fifty  years woman-has played a prominent  and ignoble part. The real instigator of the crime, she goes unpunished  bringing to those connected with her  ignominy, disgrace, exile, and somo  times death.  One of thc most notorious of these  women who for a time pulled the  strings of history was the Baroness  de Kauln, a German by birth, who  caused the downfall of old' General  do Cissey, the Minister of War in  Paris during the presidency of Marshal MacMahon. Tho General, infatuated with tho Baroness, was in  the habit of lunching with her at  her houso closo to the Elysee every  Thursday, after the meeting of the  Cabinet Council. While they woro at  luucli her servants wore tailing shorthand notes of the Ministerial papers  in tho General's portfolio, which wero  thou forwarded in cipher to Bismarck in Berlin, who thus know  every Friday morning all that had  passed in the French Cabinet Council  on Thursday.  This wont on for two years, and  might never have boen 'discovered if  tho Baroness had not made the mistake of being too grasping. Sho succeeded in obtaining from the General,  who could refuse her nothing,  VALUABLE   AUMY   CONTRACTS  for some of her friends; this led     to  searching    inquiries on  the part     of  disappointed    candidates,     and       the  wholo business came out.  Another woman of German extraction, sister, to one of the ladies-in-  waiting to the Grand Duchess of Baden, brought ruin to many French  staff officers. This was Mme. Limousin.  Married to a French magistrate of  unsullied reputation, she took advantage of her position to organize the  traffic in tho Legion of Honor decorations, whicli scandal caused such an  outcry on its discovery that President  Grovy resigned the presidency in consequence  Mme de Limousin's was a record  achievement; sho effected tho downfall of General Thibaudin; the Minis*"  tor of War; of General the Count de  Caffarel, his successor; of General the  Marquis d'Andlau, and a number of  staff officers who wore involved in  tho same scandal.  Among tho great men brought' to  naught by the evil influence of a  woman. General Boulanger stands out  prominently." . At the climax of his  career,' when all Paris was at his feet'  and the future of France in the hollow of his hand, ho throw everything  away for a" woman who was.'another  man's wife Tho Vicontesse do Bon-  nemlan called him to her.side on tho  night of his election as member of  the Chamber of Deputies for Paris.  Had ho obeyed the urgings of his  partisans and marched cupon the Ely-  see then and there, - he migljt' havo  been  RULER OF FRANCE,  but he listened instead to the    voice  of the siren, and threw his   career to  tho winds.  In another instance four men betrayed thoir country and lost their  lives tlirough a woman's beauty and  wiles. General Pavanoff and threo  colonels of the .Russian Army were  pjos SJuiAttq joj ^oijs oq o% pautuopuoo  the Russian plan of mobilisation to  the Austrian Government.  It was owing to the fascinations of  a beautiful woman. General Pavanoff's  adopted daughter," that they wero  guilty of tho treason which was punished with death.  The throe colonels betrayed their  country less for money than for the  hope of finding favor in the eyes of  this enchantress who had so infatuated them.  There is a prisoner in the gloomy  fortress of Prezemiszl wiio owes his  downfall to a lovely Russian princess.  He~~is"the~IJarb"ri" P6ttie"r~*"de"s_EscheI^  Ies, once an officer of tho Austrian  Army and aide-decamp to tho Emperor Francis Joseph, now imprisoned  as a traitor, and his treachery owes  its discovery to thc merest trifle.  Ono evening, after a reception in  Vienna, the Princess Aronberg, sister  of Count Koloman Hunyadi, found  on a sofa a slip of paper with writing upon it. It contained two columns of memoranda. One was a list  of military documents nnd secrets of  the Austrian War Department, already supplied to the Russian Government; the other a list of those  about to be divulged.  THE RUSSIAN PRINCESS  the armies of Germany, Austria, Italy, France, Russia, and Groat Britain to stato that if any ofBcor under their command should havo his  name intimately associated with that  of any woman, with tho exception of  his wife should ho bo married, it  would not only debar him from staff  employment and promotion, but  might oven load to his being placed  on the retired list.  It is said that in the Spanish-American War the Cuban women wore most  wonderfully clever spies, and, protending hostility to the Americans,  gained information of the greatest  service from tlie Spanish Generals,  who know that their enemies would  benefit thereby.  During the late war in tho Transvaal the eternal feminine contrived to  havo a finger in the pie. The discovery was mado that our military  ciphers and secrot codes woro being  regularly communicated lo tlio Boer  leaders; tho astute authorities suspected that women wero responsible,  and so it was. Mothers with beautiful and not too scrupulous daughters, who extended frequent hospitality to confiding staff officers, wero  suspected,  nnd notjwithout cause.  On the principle of setting a thief  to catch n thief, the Intelligence De  partment employed a woman to find  out what offices wore sufficiently susceptible to feminine influence to disclose any of tho ciphers then in use.  This was easily done, a certain  amount of intimacy once having been  established, and tho victims' names  wero thon sent to headquarters.  Many officers woro sent down; some  sent home, and others received a  reprimand, wondering, no douBt how  the authorities got thoir information.  To our credit as a nation, however,  it must bo said that it is quite the  exception for any of our women-kind  to play tlio part of betrayer.���������Pearson's Weekly.  ��������� ������   BELOW THE_WATER-LfflE  SCENES  ON A BATTLESHIP IN  COMMISSION.

It is the regions below tho water-  line, the engine rooms and stokeholds, where the difference between  naval sea and harbor service is most  strongly defined From a quiescent  mass of mactv.iery almost dazzling  in its bright array, but looking to  tlio uninstri'icted oyo '-ke some vast  infernal machine, repletv with potentialities of destruction, yot terrible  in its abnormal quiet, it has become  alivo, .a thing of stupendous energy,  with   innumerable  ramifications,    and  a"wKolo-chot'UH- of-differ.--V voices.

Why thoy are not severally and  many times slain each minute is not  clear, nor can the mind feci mucli  wonder at their escape, being taken  up with a consideration of tho hope  lessness of emerging from that terrible engine room by thoso labyrinthine ladders in case of* a sudden disaster to the flying machinery or on  adventitious outburst of the imprisoned, superheated steam, But even this feeling is intensified upon passing through, the air-lock into tho  stokeholds, whero under forced  draught tho half-naked, half-roasted  stokers are feeding the devouring,' yet  never satisfied, furnaces with' a  ceaseless stream of coal, hurled  laboriously from far off dim recesses  of the ship by other toiling gnomes  lo meet their unresting shovels.

Those have taken advantage of tho  excuse to raise their c'nnrgcs.  Novelty deulers have been quick to  seize upon a rrew public interest, and  little Japanese shops near the foreign settlement havo their windows  filled with decorated postal cards  ond posters illustrative of tho war,  and selling for a fow cents api**cc A  new figure, too, has appeared upon  the streets. lie is a coolie, dressed  in the usual dark blue cotton of hia  class, and he pushes before him a  small handcart piled high with small  wooden objects, revealed by a closer  scrutiny as rat traps. On ono end  of the cart is a fair-sized lin box  containing cheese  Tills coolio and cart seem to me  to illustrate fairly well the ability  of the Japanese Government to manage details. Tho coolie is ono of  many engaged in distributing traps  and cheese, so that a trap may be  set in every house. In a few days1  tho coolies will call again for thc  rats, will pay a few cents for every  skin, leave more choose, and go awny  The skins are forwarded' to a central place, where tliey are properly  cared for and arc manufactured into  caps.for the soldiers to wear in Manchuria, whero fur of some sort is almost a necessity.  Tho liberality of tho Japanese in  subscribing to tho war fund is almost incredible to men of other-  lands, and here onco more there is  no gallery in the player's thought.  Tho veriest cynic would find it difficult to show that this is done for  any motive of personal glory or later  personal gain. It is done quietly,  as a, matter of courso, for love of  the Emperor and the cause Tho  givers' names for the most part are  unknown. Tho newspapers record  only the gifts of a prominent few.  It is only by contact with the people  that ono can learn what is tho real  cost of the offerings that aro daily  being made  Tho Elder Statesmen were tho first  to mako their gifts. The newspapers learned .of thcm, and one read  that this or that Bnron, Viscount  or Marquis had contributed ono million or two million yon. No mention was made, however, of what  was in several instances to the writer's personal knowledge true, that  tho money given left thc giver in actual poverty.  A little later the Emperor sent all  his private collections to the treasury, to bo converted into coin should  they be needed. The nobility sent  thoir valuables, also, and now for  any Japanese of any class lo retain  any articles made of gold is accounted  a disgrace.  A Japanese curio denier in Yokohama sent, a large gold Duddha, the  most valuable article in his possession, to the treasury "for the Emperor." Tho school children who  had been spending two sen a day on  their lunches now spend but one son  and give the otiier "to the Emperor."  Tho writer learned a fow nights  ago that ono of his servants was suffering from tho cold, and upon inquiry found that lire s?rvaut had  sold the hibachi or firebox which  formed the only means of heating his  sleeping quarters in order- to "give  the money to tho l~*iiiperor." In addition to this, he had given one-fifth  of his monthly wages, and the other  .servants had done the same.

Typewriters have also been boycotted after a similar fashion, and  that not only In the disturbed provinces, but throughout the Turkish  empire The reason given by tho  Pone is that the machines were being used by the Young Turkish party  as secret printing-presses for tho  manifolding of treasonable literature  Morocco forbids the importation of  firearms. Rifles that cost SS apiece  to manufacture in Birmingham could  he readily sold to the semi-independent tribesmen of that turbulent  empire for ������.10 or ?60 each, so eager  are they to possess reliable modern  weapons. But the Sultan is adamant, and no trade can be done,  unless illegitimately and at the  RISK OF ONE'S NECK.  In Persia, too, n similar prohibition exists. But in this caso it is  really thc British Government���������acting, oi course, through tho Shah���������  that is responsible for tlio boycott.  Tt was found tliat rifles consigned to  Persian ports had a knack of finding  their way eventually to Kabul. And  our Foreign Office has its own reasons for not wishing the present Amir  to accumulate too large a store of  death-dealing weapons within the  walls of his capital.  China objects to all kinds of pills  and potions, principally, it is alleged, because the authorities suspect  that they may possibly contain  opium in some gtiisc or other. Tlio  importation of this latter drug is,  of courso, only permitted under severe restrictions. Several times the  Chinese Government have tried to  strangle tha traffic altogether-, but  always unsuccessfully. Once they .  went to war with ourselves, about  it, and during the time hostilities  wore on and ponding���������ahout five  years���������not an ounce of the precious *  stuff" got into the country through  legitimate channels. Large quantities were, however, smuggled in,  mostly by daring, desperate, men,  who took their lives in thoir hands.  Small, swift vessels, known as  "OPIUM  CLTPFERS,"-  were  specially  built for tha tabooed  trade, and hugo fortunes were realised by the successful adventurers.  King Khama visited Britain a few  years ago, his object being to fjet us  to agree not to permit intoxicants  to bo imported into his country.  To our credit, be it said, he was successful.

You may not bring card "counters," or any objects resembling-  mom, into the principality of Monaco.

GRAND    TRUNK    PACIFIC  CONSTRUCTION.  It is with regret that we announce  in our Ottawa correspondence' the decision of Senator Teinpleiir.in to yield  to the exigencies of the political situ-:  ation,   and   agree  not  to .move   an  amendment to the Grand Trunk Pacific bill, providing for   construction of  the line from the coast simultaneously  with the   commencement of 'the other  sections of the railway. *\Ve had hoped  that  his   published intention'to have  such   an   iiniendment   placed   on the  order   paper  for   the   third   reading  meant, as   a  member of   the Government, that he would have the support  of   the   Government, and   that  there  would be   no   opposition  tort.    Once  more the rights of British.Columbia  to recognition have been ignored, and  once more our Liberal representatives  at.  Ottawa  have   tamely    submitted  without even uttering a'word of.protest.     When   we   saw  that Senators  Terupleman and Bostock voted against  Senator  "Uacdonuld's   amendment   it  naturally occurred to us, more especially as Mr. Templemrui spoke in favor  of construction  of the Pacific section  being commenced on the coast, that  it   was   his   intention   to move in the  matter himself and it was subsequently   so   announced.     The Colonist was  willing to give all due consideration to  the political  kudos that he naturally  w.oivld^c^jwLJttL=i3aifi^iLli������y2iyyi������,  imendirri.'nt   nnd  fathering   the     amendment   anil   refrained" from  unfavorable   comment.  At the same time we expressed n fear  as   to   the   probable   results.    It  has  transpired tbat it was hopeless tn have  anticipated  anything  more favorable  to   British   Columbia's   iiiteiv*.t.s    at  Ottawa.     "Whatever   good intentions  Senator   Teiupleirniii   mny   have bad  they were .strangled by  the Government  at the dictation nf   the Gi.ind  Trunk   Pacific.

Jack and Swede groups for eight  months, through litigation growing  out of the several lunations on the  former property. fl. would be inadvisable to erect a stamp-mill until the  c '  question of ownership i.s finally settled.  To treat the ore of the two properties  economically, the most convenient  place for ri mill would be on the Lucky  Jack ground, as the ore from the  Swede could be easily trammed down,  while the Lucky .'Jack pre could not be  taken up to the Swede except at  enormous.'.-expense. It the ease goes  against the Great Northern Wines, the  mill will of course be erected near' the  Swede group in order lo avoid the  expense of an aerial t.i.'iin. If tbe  company win, a tram will be necessary fo bring the ore down the bill.  The Swede is a quarrying proposition,  there"being .jOO.OOO square feet of surface tluit assays all the way fr-orrr itfi  to ''.upwards-'of- $20,000 to the ton in  free gold. It would be useless expenditure to break this ground nnd store  it in bins, and afterwards hnve In handle it again, when it could jusl as  easily be taken direct- from the quarry  to the tram, thus saving the cost of  handling it ii second time. Siiflicient  work has been done to prove tbe surface area of ore to a depth of 150 feel.  This gives -15,000.000 cubic feet of pay  ground on the Swede ready for1 the  stumps as soon as the case is finally  decided one way'or tbe other.  From the foregoing it will be seen  that 'the Great Northern Mines. Ltd..  cannot build a mill until a decision has  been given by the courts finally settling the ownership of the Lucky Jack.  If they build a stamp-mill nt the  Swede and then win the case, (mother  mill would have to be built to treat  the Lucky Jnek ore.

Cressman, Revelstoke  ..������������������ mmmmi  Synopsis of Rev. W. C. Calder's  Sermon to L. O. L. i6S5, in  Presbyterian Church, Sunday,  July ioth.  "With freedom did Chi ist sirt us  free; stjuuli'ast tlioruforo. and lit: nut  entangled rigainiiut yo\������ of bondage."  ���������Gal. v.-i.    (Kovised Version.)  The doiiiiiinnt note   of   the   text   is  that   of  defeirs,'.     It is not olVensive.  lc is stand fast���������hold   on   to what you  possess.    TheGnlatian Christians were  beset   with   Juilai/.rirg   teachers'   who  sought   lo   impose upon believers lhe  law with circumcision and all its bondage.    Behind   tin:  law  was the priest.  Jesus had broken this yo'.e.    Ye shall  know the truth and the truth .shall set  you free.     Sacerdotalism  became the  burden of   lire, .old   economy,, it is the  "power  which  threatens the i'reedonr  and liberty  of to-day.    The Loyal Orange   Association     is   defensive   not  otferiiive. ll defends light and liberty.  It. is   not   against   a religion, i. e. the  Human Catholic religion bul against a  system���������priestcraft.,   whicli  as a parasite has fastened itself upon the Christian Church.    Tiro question is how did  priestcraft   impose     itself   upon   the  church.      In   the  course of   time the.  early church lost irs (ire and zoal.    In  its   contact   wilh   heathenism,   there  was  tliat. counter action   which per-  .meatcd Christianity  with heathen influence.     That   heathenism   was distinctly sacerdoLal.    Wiih the old Jewish influence these two forces operated  to develop the idea within, of a priesthood.    The development  was gradual  until   in   the   middle ages priestcraft  was supreme.    Tiie evils of the system  led to the  gieat   Reformation of   the  16th century.     Since the great reform  movement sacerdotalism  has sought  in every way to regain its power.    It  is the enemy  of  light and liberty.    It  means   the    shackling of   the human  mind, the binding of   the heart.    The  reducirg   of   man to  mental slavery.  We see it today as it  works in the olrl  land.   The great  struggle in England  over the new education law has this as  its   root.     We   witness people being  despoiled of their goods and going to  prison.     Refusing   to   pay   the i rites  because   they .see   behind   the school  law   the   priest.      One of.- the  things  embedded in  the  constitution  of  the  United States  is  the national schools.  This   enemy   to   all  human liberty is  putting forth   its strength to destroy  the national school.  Wherever thc  priest rules tliere is  -stagnation and-dealh and poverty.    It  is   the   curse of  Ireland  today.   The  Irish question   is not ona.  of   British  tyranny.     Thc Irish-farmer is in a far  better   position   than   the   farmer of  England and Scotland.     Bill after hill  in  the  interest   of ��������� Ireland  lias-been  passed through the British parliament  .and   yet   Ireland   is   unhappy.     The  cause of all Ireland's  ill is to be found  in priestcraft.     We go clown the St.  Lawrence and  view  the fair province  of   Quebec.      Why   is   its people in a  state of  infancy and tutelage as compared  with   the rest of the Dominion.  As we   name   such   names as Cartier,  Dorion, Laurier  and others we name  those   who   have   burst their fetters.  While   remaining  Roman    Catholics  they proclaim the fact that they freed  themselves   fiom   the .power   of  the  priest.     This   power i.s potent in our  land.     The government of today has  refused  (so it is said) to form the Territories into provinces  because Rome  has   made   its   demands for separate  schools. "  It  is the  power behind thc   throne. It_is thi.s__pn.wei'__w(>_rniist  resist in its encroachments, lt is to  standfast in the liberty wherewith  Christ has set us free.  The Loyal Orange Association opposes no man in his religion. It demands perfect liberty for all. It discourages everything offensive anil  reflects on no man's belief. Jt inculcates charity and kindness and within  its lodges there is nothing calculated  to olfend Roman Catholics, If  Protestants oppnsed to us and  tliose of another faith understood our  principles.and ritual they would stand  in fullest sympathy with us. To he a  true Orangeman is to exhibit the  highest type of manhood and Christianity. Here Rev. Calder read the  charge of the Master to every candidate for initiation as to what an  Orangeman should be. In our vow we  do not swear to walk knee deep in  Romish blood as has been atTir-med.  There is nothing murderous or bloodthirsty in it. Onco you pass the  Orange degree the name of Rome is  never mentioned. Aa yo'u pass  through tho Purple, the Blue, and the  Royal Arch on to the Scarlet it is one  continued exemplification of the word  of God and its teachings. And as one  enters the portal of the Royal Black  Knight one's reverence ar.d sense of  obligation is deepened. It is for the  men of this Order to seek in tbe  details of life, to exemplify its living  principles and as we think of our civil  and religious liberty. I would direct  your attention to that deeper and  inner thought of ourtoxt, the freedom  at the children of God.   That freedom  from the law of sin and of death.  That freedom which alone can sweeten  life and deepen hope and. prepare us  for the full enjoyment of the life  which is to come. It is for us thus to  show forth our principles from day  to day and in the highest sense stand  fast in the freedom of Christ and  make it impossible to be again  entangled in a yoke of bondage.

The people of the South are making  more money than thc people of any  section of the union. Fruit growing  and truck farming pay large profits  because the farmer gots his products  into market six weeks earlier than the  farmer of any other section. Kice  growing, sugar cane growing and the  making of sugar, cotton growing  brings to the tanners large return  and these crops are sure. No droughts  to cause a failure.

Philip s/*t smoking his hubble-  bubble by lemp-liglrt thut evening,  pondering ways unci moans of returning to Lucknow when lie should be  woi! enough, and penetrating thc rebel lines to tho relieving force, which  ns he now learned, was closely besieged and ire its turn awaiting relief, he wandered what .Tcssic would  think if she could birt poop through  the latticed wiru*..'W upon him. This  amused him -so much tlrat ho laughed and swallowed some of the rose-  water through lire tube, half choking  himself, this reminded him that the  art or" smoking the native pipe was  not to be learnt in a moment, any  more than the native fashion of sitting which hc was practising, with  his turban ou, his slippers otic, and  an expression of profounB gravity  upon his face. Jossio would not  recognize her brother in this dignified young Hindoo. How amused  Campbell would he ! Ah, no, he remembered, Campbell, the bright boy  ensign who h>U joined a few weeks  before they came out, and whom  Philip hud taken into his heart of  hearts, would never more bo amusing or amused. Tears filled his  eyes and he laid the pipe aside, recalling his last sight of Charlie  Campbell, cut almost in two" by a  round shot, as they passed the deadly Kaiser Hagh. Then he thought  mournfully of others, oflicprs and  men, whom he had scon fall in the  fierce rush to  the Residency.  As he was thus sadly musing and  listening to a subdued chanting,  which sounded pleasantly through  tire house, a low knock was heard at  his door.  "Como in," he said, in the faltering Hindostancc, of which he had  of course picked up a, few words before  his  arrivnl  at  Bcclamporc.  Tho door opened ''quickly arid softly, arrd as quickly and softly closed  r.gnin behind a vision that struck  him dumb with ramazonient. It, was  tho figure of a tall, slim Hindoo  girl/dressed in gay hired silk, with  ��������� n brilliant silken sari thrown gracefully over her head and shoidders,  and with golden ornaments upon hcr  round, brown, arms, and slender*  ankles. Gossam joe's lesson on Hindoo manners not having included the  etiquette proper to the reception of  an uninvited lady ? in his private  .apartments, Philip was embarrassed  as to what he ought to do. He had  only  time,  in  his first startled   gaze  my brother wnuht have sent, us away,  brrt that might have precipitated  tilings arrd the country was rrot  sure. I did not think it was so near  when I 'first put orr the ayah's dress.  IJut 1 must make haste. Vou come  from TiUeknow,1 My brother* Arthur,  Captain Arthur Mnynard, is there,  have you seen hiru ?"  "I never reached the position, Miss  Maynard. 1 fell in the last, rush  and was trikcrr prisoner," ho replied,  "brrt when my wound i.s healed 1  must get there somehow, when 1  may  see your  brother."  lie said may advisedly, for he  knew that the loss during tho siego  must havo been great.  "You will tell him my story, Mr.  RnKdtill," she continued, "it was  for tlris I wished to speak with you,  and prevailed upon Ruksbhni to persuade Gossarnjec to permit this hurried visit. Hc���������-and indeed my poor  mother and all my people���������will have  heard of the disaster at Jcllupore,  and suppose, me  to"havo: perished."..  Philip listened to this recital, his  heart torn by pity, admiration,  surprise, fear, he knew" not what.  Ho corrld scarcely identify the pretty, light-hoarted girl with Whom hc  had danced but, a. few months' before,  and whom Ire had halt despised, In  spite of the spell she had cast upon  him, with this stately Hindoo in  her picturesque dross, with the look  of tragic endtiranco stamped upon  hcr face, and depths of thought ancl  suffering in her eyes. Tho lamplight shone, directly upon lior, playing upon thc dark hair half coriceal-  od hy the crimson and gold sari, and  on ���������l.ho mournful dignity of the face,  which looked as if the light of mirth  could never* moye it from its deep  sorrowful repose. She had developed rapidly .during*' the lust few  experiences that would have  calling the many terrible and sometimes untrue stories ho had heard or*  tho horrors of the last, few months.  Sho krrew where to strike fatally !  How calmly who hull spoken, as if  assuring; him of the most ordinary  fact. And he was powerless to  help her. Tho hubble-bubble and  tho Hindoo posture were alike forgotten, tho turban was pushed farther hack from the brow damp with  horror and Philip sat, a very Euro-:  penn picture of trouble and dismay,  feeling the full tragedy of tho. mutiny as he hnd never done beforo. ITe  hud heard of .lellapore, where Ada  fllriynai'd's own sister-in-lnw had boon  dung alive into the flames of a burning building hefore hor husband's  eyes, and thrust, back with bayonets  till she died. Was it nil a dream-?  He rose and looked round the little  room with its swinging lamp aud  scanty foreign furniture; he looked  out ol" the open bay window shaded  by its sun-lattice, nrrd saw the  moonlight sleeping peacefully on the  housetops, antl scarcely penetrating  the narrow streets, touching a." gilded  cupola with burning silver upon  gracefully, swnying palms arn.1 dark  masses of -unfamiliar foliago in tho  distance, and bringing.out tho bas-  tiorred walls and turrets of a. castle  upon a hill���������the arch i tec ture of  which was like a confused dream of  feudalism and Gothic Middle Ages  blended fantastically with oriental  splendor and despotism, tlio whole  touched with tho peculiar glamour of  tho East and the deep enchantment  of tho days of chivalry.  Tho magic of that rich nnd splendid Eastern hind had scarcely affected him.in the constant succession of  adventures and dangers; he could  even look unmoved upon the grace of  tho slender symbolic palms, tho very  name of which has a charm, calling  tip a thousand associations. He had  first soon these "palms and temples  of the south*' through a. medium' of  bloodshed and horror, but to-night  lire domes of burning silver, the  light soaring grace of the minarets  rising above lhem, the dark, rich,  foreign foliago, and the castle on thc  hillside, nil sleeping in the clear  moonlight, woke in him a. fooling of  beauty and romance to be remembered forever.  Chimin had told him the mime of  the owner* of that castle, a '-native  nobleman neutral in the present  strife. What if lie should prove a  friend.-'tis morn than ono rajah    had  sum-  months,  crushed   some    natures,  had    ripened j been   to  fugitive English  that  hers.

This  doscripti  sorrowful  dark oyes not only cntran-j the  ball-room,   and   thrilled    Philip's! iod  only too wi  stood     with    folded   arms  head  as if awaiting commands.  Thisjcaste  cent chances of distinction ho was  losing in tho lirst terrible week after  tho storming of the English position.  He slept tranquilly on his mat,  dreaming of the great willow by the  mill stream, the pleasant, cool  sound of tho turning mill-wheel, tho  fitrnilinr faces in tho firelight, his  father and mother given back to  him, ns tho dead so often nre in  dreams, and Jessie a child ugnin,  light-hearted, spoilt, and happy. Perhaps .lessie, safe beneath Miss Blush-  ford's prim guardianship, was evon  then dreaming the same dream, on  hnr whito curtained, I a ven dor-scon ted  pillow, seeing Philip again with his  manhood nml his Crimean laurels  fresh irpon him. Perhaps she started from her tranquil sloop, thought  of her poor- boy lighting in distant  India, and said a prayer for hiru before turning again to her rest.  Philip's dream suddenly changed to  the dim and tumult of battle, ho was  before     Sobnstopol   n? -unleer  ing to replace somo shattered gabions under heavy lire, vvlrnri a musket  ball again struck him in the shoulder; agairr he clenched hi.s tenth with  pain, and wont, on adjusting the gabions with l.ho uninjured arm; but  tho pain of the wound grew antl grew  beyond ull hearing till with, what ho  thought, u. loud cry ho awoke.  The moonlight lay upon the courtyard, tv palm-tree standing motionless in tho centre traced its plumed  crown blackly against the deep sky,  and cast its elongated shadow right  athwart the court .towards him; another, a human shadow, fell across  his recumbent form; instead of a  gun-shot wound a. dark, light hand  was grasping his shoulder, a dark  Unbailed face came between him and  the moonlight, ������, Hindoo youth was  bonding.over.him. dimly soon against  tho strong moonlight.  "Chimin !'*'��������� he exclaimed, starling  up.  ''Hush !" whispered the lad, in a  voice which stirred him, "keep in  the shadow and follow rne."  : Ho rose without hesitation or question and cat cli ing up srrch clothes as  ho had laid aside, followed the slim  and graceful figure, wondering if this  I might bo somo fresh scene from  dreamland,'-ot* tho sweet madness of  a fairy tale, and filled with a vague  delight in the 'mystery,';, romance,  and probable danger of following his  fugitive countrywoman iii her fresh  disguise. Ho was bound to bo lior  knight, his life was at her service; as  phe explained nothing she hud doubt-  loss good reason for her silence.  Noiselessly gliding into thc shadow  she: flit led; round the veranda, passing close to the sleeping forms of  Gossainjco and Chunia, each on his  purdah, till she reached a door, in  the lock of which sho placed "a, key  which .turned without sound.  Sho relockcd the door while Philip  wai ted, "-'silent:' nnd almost .{breathless  in the absolute darkness; thnn with  a whispered "Como," led him along  a dark passage until they emerged  inlo the narrow street of Mcelnm-  pore: Ada softly locking tho last  door behind hor. Thon she paused?a:  moment, pushing him back into the  shadow, from which he had incautiously escaped, placed a parcel in  his hands,' and after-; listening intently and looking, as if in doubt,  this way anil that, started again,  still barefoot and noiseless, as was  Philip,  i    They passed  the  bazaar,   which'    he  able excitement in the .monotony of j Hashed  his honorable captivity. A strange  combination of feelings thrilled- him,  and made him wonder that the sight  of a pretty Hindoo woman should  to stir him.  "Mr.  Randal,"  said  thc lady,   in  a  low,     thrilling   voice  which  heart     beating;    "you     do  course,  remember me ?"  The English accent was perfect,  and Philip, iu bewilderment, raised  his downcast head and looked earnestly into the dark, beautiful face.

In thn course of an address boforo  tho I'lolstoln-Eriesian Association of  America, Prof. "H. 11. Penn, o of tho  Ontario Agricultural College, spoko  as follows:  "Eirst wc have found tliem." (thu  Holstein-Ei'iesians) "in our experience  at tho College, whero we keop six  or sovon breeds for instructional purposes for our students, a healthy und  a. thrifty .breed of cattlo. Vie aro  required, owing to our peculinr circumstances, to keep representatives  of tho different breeds, and we' find tho  Holstolrrs a healthy, thrifty brood,  and I consider that a vory strong  point. Now, wo .find that some  broods do not seem to havo that  strong constitution, that thrift, thnt  inherent, quality which always makes  thorn ready for thoir meals, and  ready for almost .anything which mny  como up; and I consider that a vory  strong point, and I believe that thc  breeders of ITolstoin rattle would bo  making a. most serious mistake if  thoy lost sight of that vigor and  thrift and health and constitution  which is now so important a point  among this famous breed of cattlo.  "Then wo find in our experience  that tho calves nro strong, and good  doers. I havo'nevor known in my  experience with..them a calf to come  weak, and a calf that required nursing, and required coddling, and .. required" nny extra attention. Without  exception they conic strong and are  good doers," and in two or throe  weeks we can put them on skim milk  and soon begin to food thorn bran and  oats, and thoy begin to thrive right  from the start. JVow, other calves  do not siiom to thrive in the samo  way, and that is. why I liko the I-Iol-  stoin; cattle, because thoir calves nro  thrifty right  from  the  start. ���������>  "Then, another strong point of tlio  Holsteins is therr size. /Thoy aro.-of.  good size. Now, some people say  that sizo is a detriment in the* dairy  business; that if you 'can get a small  cow to do a given amount of work,  that she does not rerjuire so much  food, and that shu will produce milk  or butter or clieoso more economically, because she is of smaller size.  Now, I will tell you; we have looked  into that, matter pretty carefully,  and we find that the difference in tho  feed which i.s consumed by a lasgc  cow and a small ono, fpr the production of ' a given quantity of milk  or "butter,' is largely in the rough  food, tho clicap food, and whether a  cow be a largo ont? * or a small ono,  she-will reguire just about a certain  amount; of concentrated'; feed, and that  tho difference in tho Tood which is  eaten by largo and small cows is in  t.ho cheap,, rough, bulky food, and  anc? not in the concentrates. We  find that a. cow requires about eight  pounds of meal for each' pound of fat  sho produces in tho millc.  'The next strong point of tho Tfol-  stein is that thoy aro regular breeders. We liave found in our experience vcry much less troublo in getting  cows to breed ..'regularly, cows of 'this  brood, than cows belonging to other  breeds, and we very seldom have any  difficulty in that respect (with Holsteins); a trouble which sometimes  gives tlie d'alrymon a great deal of  annoyance."  CORN CUETURE.  I usually select sod land for. corn  and plow it in the fall, writes Mr.  C. F. Puller. Barnyard and general  farm manure.' is spread broadcast over the land. Cornis planted in hills  aboirt 42 inches apart. Tho seed is  first rolled in tar and ashes to pro-  vent the crows from destroying it.  Wo have found": this method vory successful. I always select a������good, slow,  steady horso for cultivating, and go  twice in the row close to each? hill.  I cultivate both wnyB so. that the  work is thoroughly dono. Thero aro  usually no weeds left except an pc-  casionaE.onc^in.^.thc^hiIl,,iWhieh'^-is  pulled out. I usually cultivate; about  three times during tho soason. East  year' after the ���������' corn was planted, I  put in Hubbard squash seed. The  crop was a very good one. I skipped  a fow rows and planted pumpkins In  the same field. I put two soods in  every third hill in every third row.  Although  last  season  was  a     vory  severe one, we got fairly good crops,  the  field  averaging aboirt  07   bushols  of  shelled   corn   per  acre.   "I  planted  nbout one quart of squash soed, from  which I got a largo double box wagon  load of good  sized  squashes    and  pumpkins.    They wero disposed of at  1 it local  hotel.     .Squashes were  rotail-  | Ing  at     .'J  cents     per    pound,   whilo  | pumpkins were soiling nt SU'ner ton  ! nt. the canning factory  greatly deceived by a large uddor.  A cow mny havo a largo udder and  yot give little milk. A cow with a  deep, narrow udder ending in largo  toats Is seldom a good milljcr. Such  an udder has coarse linlr and abundance ol" it. It is but littlo reduced in  sizo by tho milking process. A heavy  milker must have a largo udder, but  it is rather broad thnn long, and to  carry it woll without bruising or  chafing tlie hind feet-should bo woll  apart. Such an udder should Iv.rvo  short Hair and when milked should be  shrunk in size mid tho skin should  hang loosely ovor its surface.  Tho shujio and sot of tho teats is  ono important consideration in buying a cow. The teats should bo  placed woll apart so that thoro will  bo plenty of room for tho hands of  tho milker. This feature indicates  groat milking capacity. All groat  milking cows havo a wido spread of  teats. The shapo of tho touts adds  to or subtracts from tho value of a  cow.? An ideal shaped is long and  rather slim. Gvory one who has  milved cows knows how much short  teats increase thc labor ot milking.  Thoro is a class of tents known  among milkers as india-rubber teats,  so that whon you press on them with  the hand thoy givo no milk or only a  small stream conies. Such cows .aro  the dread of all dairies, and although they aro often good milkers  thoir owners aro willing to pass thorn  on when a cow-buyer appears.

So far as the question of timo is  concerned, ft deserves notice that not  merely geology, but almost every  form of inquiry into tho past,  throws further back - tho limits usually assigned.,  Kgypt,"for instance, is continually  furnishing fresh proofs of tho antiquity of civilization. Trof. Flinders  Potrio expounded nt Owens College,  Manchester, Kngland, a few days ago  the results of recent explorations at  Abydos, in Upper Egypt, from which  it appeal's that tho ruins at that one  spot tell a continuous story tliat carries us back to ������5000 B. 'C. Abydos  was tho first capital of Egypt, and  remained for forty-five centuries tho  religious centre, tho Canterbury of  tho land; and there the Egyptian Exploration Fund has unearthed the remains of "ton successive tcmi'les, ono  ovcr tlio��������� other."' From tho ago of  the flrst temple a group of about two  hundrod objects, has been found, which  throws surprising light on tho civilization of tho First "Dynasty. A part  of a large glazed pottery vase of  Mena, tho first King of the First Dynasty, about 4700 B. C, showed  "that even then tlioy wore making  glaze on a considerable scale, and also inlaying it *' with a.second color.  Tho ivory carving was astonishingly  fine, a figure of a King showing a  subtlety and power of expression as  good as any.work of later ages."  At about 4000 B. C. an ivory statuette of Cheops, the builder of thc  great pyramid, was found, tho only  known portrait of him. Making every possible allowance for the marvellous rapidity of art development,  must not many -.''thousands of years  liave rolled over betwcen; the pristine  dwellers in tho Nile Valley, and; the  men who carved ivory statuettes and  manufactured glazed work inlaid with  second colors? It is a long, long  march from flint implements to the  solemn temple ivory statuettes and  human portraits;  nealh his roof.

Tlio question of dress is often a,  problem to tiro woman who has acquired moro flesh thnn she desire*  and wl������o in consequence llnds tho mode  ot dross in voguo among hcr mot'u  slender sisters not only unbecoming,  hut uncomfortable. Slie wl-drcs to  keep "within sight" of fashions, yet  finds it diflleult to reconcile styles t������  hcr superabundant avoirdupois. 'Th*'  too slender woman 'can resort ta  various doviccs to conceal hor delicd-  encios; thero is no way, unhappily, iw  which tiio "too, too soiM flush" of  tho stout woman can bo mado to disappear. But by good taste, by a.  careful study of what Is becoming,  and by sedulously avoiding tho eccentricities and exaggerations of fashions ������ho may manage to koop in stylo  rind look well dressed.  Tho stout woman reduces her apparent size if Bhe dresses in black.  Trained skirts add to hor holght and  scom to diminish breadth. Sho should  eschew skirt trimmings unless applied  perpendicularly; . ruffles, pleating*,  bands, are not for hor unless thei/  aro quite narrow and lilaccd at tho  very foot of tho skirt. All horizontal lines tend' to make libr'look shorter and stouter. If ,a figured goods  is chosen, let it be in sinall or modi-  urn size fibures, or, bettor, in unobtrusive stripes, never wide or conspicuous designs,  Sho should avoid yokes.aiid broad  vests. A narrow vest, particularly  in white,7 is almost in variably^ becoming, and may bo framed in porpendt-  cular lines of trimming. As a rule, ri  waist is more becoming, to tlio stout  woman if it is slightly pointed in  front and has a postilion back, hut  docs not extend below the?waist lins  on tho sides. The old round'.basque  was ..'.peculiarly." "trying*'., to the stout  woman because it made a horizontal  lino! so immediately below the ; waist.  Sleeves should not, bc exaggerated,  sinco undue fulness adtls to tho  breadth of tho shoulders. In fact, tho  stout woman should study .to bo mod-  ium in following 'fashion's vagaries.  Tlio long wrap is most becoming to  her. Not so tightly fitted that sho  looks like a sausage in its skin, but  a littlo more snug than what dressmakers call .half-fitting. It should  reach woll below the" knoes. . Many  women inclined to embonpoint^ wear-  capos," and if the capo is well cut and  is not "bobby" it is" convenient and  often a becoming garment, if the  wearer carries herself well, its long  lines continuing thc skirt lines.  ���������Tlio stout woman should' talre especial thought as to her boniMls or  hats. A tiny bonnet crowning a  round, full faco ran never be becoming; a huge lint is overwhelming. The  stout woman can generally wear x  topple to advantage, but must bo carcv  ful to see that it Hns breadth enough  to continue tho lines of.hor head; It  too narrow it is an>, objectionable an  a too small bonnet. A rather'���������.���������'. wide  hat is often becoming if tho weare*'  is not too old for*it.. Tlie hat ar  bonnet that has much height given it  by trimmings is too much like a  steeple, and yet a flat hat is liko a -  pancalto; here again a careful stud'y  in mediums will prove most satisfactory.  Tlio problem of dressing the neck-  often perplexes the woman who, na  slio says, "has no nock.to SjpeaE of."  Just now, there are absolutely collar-  less gowns, and these witli very high  collars. If the throat bo white aud  pretty, a collarless gown worn with  a protty round lace collar turning  back? from the heck is perfectly good  form, and now beads arc worn so  much' a string of them, or a bead  chain, is a good addition. Bettor not  attempt the high' stocks that belong  to "the swan-necked," but bo content  with a low ono that .sirits tho neck.  They soil here, and 1 dare say clse-  whorcTfdundatiorrcollars'-in-blixek-iiud-  whito mousselino, very. slightly stiffened with feathcrbonc, which ladies  cover with narrow silk bands and  beads, or. witli Inco motifs, 'trans*.  formiirg them into dressy little col������  lars. They arc not as high as the  stocks, and some are quite low; they  come" in largo sizes, and some ar-������  pointed In front, a mode becoming, to  tho short-necVed woman.  There was novor such a pretty,  dainty way of necg-dressiiig for' the  elderly worn an with .a short, fat. neck;  as the SQirare of lnce net folded surplice fashion inside the gown. J I. was  graceful and simple: it seemed to refine even a coarse'face, and most ot  us can remember some dear; whi to-  Haired old lady whom wo never saw  and really couldn't imagine::. in any  other..''attire. If tho fashion would" return���������though indeed it has never  wholly gone out, being si ill affected  by many wealthy ladies of mature  years who are good dressers���������it would  solve a vexed question'-- for many-  stout: women.

A burn is such a frequent accident  and is withal so painful tliat any one  who makes tho slightest pretense to  "first-aid" wisdom should know what  to do to relievo tho sufferer until professional medical aid can be obtained.  Writers of surgical works usually  divldo burns into three degrees of  boveiity. In the first there is nothing  moro than increased redness of tho  skin, with more or less smarting ri,*  the affected part. In burns of tho  second degree thc surfaco is still red,  but it is also moro or less covered  with blisters of variable extent. In  tho third class nro placed the burns  whicli aro really burns��������� cases in whicli  the tissues nro charred or completely  destroyed.  The danger of a burn varies in general with the extent of surface affoct-  ea' rather than with the degree. Thus  a burn of the first degree, inducing  only redness without blistering, but  in-iolving about two-third's of the  surface of the body, has caused death,  whito the actual carbonization of en-  lit o foot and part of tho leg has been  survived.  The most desirable thing in the  cv.1'. cf a burn of any extent or degree is to exclude the air and protect the part from pressure or rubbing. Cloth's wet in a solution of  ordinary washing-soda or cooking-  soda ,*inii covered by oiled silk to  provriil drying servo tlie purpose admirably; and the soda Has the further  recommendation of relieving the pain  better than almost anything else. A  mixture of equal parts of linseed-oil  nnd lime-water���������tho well-known carron  oil���������is  a  time-honored   remedy. If  blisters have formed, the water may  bo let out by making a littlo snip of  r thc raised sKin near the edge, of the  bliste.'. hut great care must bc taken  not to teoi* off the covering skin.  If the burn lias treon severe the constitutional symptoms may bc marked,  and tiratinent mav ho needed to ward  a/I shock and prevent collapse. If  tho skin has been destroyed to a  greater or.less depth, antiseptic treatment will bc needed to promote healing and prevent exhausting suppuration, or oven gangerene. Of course,  if the burn is extensive or deep only  "iTst-aid" treatment should be given.  Medical assistance should be secured  . as soon as possiblo.  BLOTCHY  SKINS.

' *'   ADVANTAGE OF. BEING ILL.  One. of tho greatest difficulties in  life is illness when the hands are full  of work."~and of business requiring at-  tc-Titicn. In many cases thc strain  nnd anxiety, which causes resistance  to tho illness," is even more severe,  mvd makes more trouble tl"an the illness  itself.  .Suppose,*- for instance, that'a man  is taken down with the measles, when  he feols that lie ought to' bo nt his  office, wid that his absence may result in serious loss to himself" and  others. If he begins by letting go,  in his body and in his,mind, and realizing that the illness is beyond his  own |iower, it will soon occur to him  that hc might ns well turn his illness  to account by getting a good rest out  of it. In this frame of mind his  chances of early recovery will be increased, aiul he may even get up from,  his illness with so much new life and  with his mind so much refreshed . as  to make up, in part,,for hia temporary absence from business.' But, on  th'e other hand, if ho resists worries,  complains and gets irritable, hc iri-  tates His nervous system and, by,so  doin? is likely to* bring on any one  of the disagreeable troubles known  to follow meo.<=les; and tlius he may  keep himself housed for -weeks, perhaps months,  instead of davs.  BESSEMEIt*S INVENTION.  Saved the' Inland Revenue Department from* Loss.  It  is  almost, the universal   impression' that  the lato  Sir Henry Ilessc-  .   inner" was knighted  in  recognition    oX  the  steel     process    which   bears"   his  name,     but  such   was   not  the  case  rays  Cnssier's Magazine.      Tho honor was bestowed  in  1878,   when    he  was C6 years old, as a tardy reward  for   a service    rendered    thc   British  Government about    the time of   his-  ntlaining his majority.     The history  of this, as told by James Dredge,  is  that the" time,    when  in his    early  years, Bessemer    came into   contact  with some of the officials of Somerset    House,    the seat of the Inland  Revenue Department,    it was notorious that frauds on tho Government  were perpetrated to an alarming extent by thc repeated use of   stamps  ���������  affixed    to deeds.     It was estimated  that an annual loss of ������100.000 was  sustained from this cause, and to devise a means for cntiroly putting   a  . stop to this occupied Bcsscmer's attention.     It is almost superfluous to  say that he arrived at a solution by  tho , simplest means,   that of perforating    the Government stomps    with  dates.     Now that this evident method    has      found    a    Hundred   .uses  throughout  the     civilized   world     to  safeguard  stamps ���������>r checks,  and   to  divide postage stamps,  being among  the most common, it is a little difficult." to    realizo tho   importance    of  this    invention.        To   Bessemer    it  meant, in anticipation, vast things���������  assured     fame,"   a     retaining   fee  of  ������600 a    year   ns a Government official,   and   a groat   advance  on     tho  road 1o fortune."     In reality,   howevor,   it  meant  nothing,   for    though  the  invention   wus  at  once  adopted,  the official promises woro soon   forgotten,   4   Liability to- Diseases of the ���������Bronchial Tubes and Lungs.  Mouth-breathing is more than a  habit; it is an evidence of deformity  or disease in the upper air-passages.  A child never breathes through his  mouth from choice. He docs so  either because the passages of the  nose aro obstructed or because his  tonsils arc enlarged, and ho cannot  be taught to breathe naturally so  long as the obstruction remains. In  somo instances tho interference with  respiration is due to a deformity of  the chambers of the nose, but in a  majority ot cases it is caused by tho  presence of adenoids in tho pharynx.  Enlargement of the tonsils may be  associated with cither of tliose conditions,  or it may exist alone.    ���������   -  Children who breathe* through  their mouths aro alwajs morc liable  to thc diseases of the bronchial tubes  and lungs. They often sudor, too,  from disease of tho cars, - and they  rarely escape thc first opportunity  to contract thc acute infections, for  many of these gain entranco through  the tonsils. But aside from such  possibilities, tho interference with  breathing soon, produces a change in  thc features and a permanent deformity of the chest quite like thnt  which formerly morc than now .was  regarded as an evidence of an inherited tendency  to consumption.  These abnormal conditions of the  nose and throat often become evident  in early infancy; they arc considered  ns due in a measure to hereditary  transmission, for they often nppcar  in sovcrn 1 generations of n family.  Their existence in a child is sometimes revealed during recovery from  measles, scarlet fever or other acute  illness.  A tendency to catarrhal disease of  tho throat may develop and persist  even after tho cause has been removed. Tliis must bo overcome by exercise, cool bathing and other hygienic measures in addition to puch  local treatment ns the physician  may direct.

BUGHISM AND SHIHTOISI  3,000     GODS    FOR. THE  JAPANESE   TO  WORSHIP.  Some     Small    Villages  Are  Made  Up Almost Entirely of  Temples.  Imagine trying to keep track of  and pay homage to moro than 3,000  gods, to offend ono of whom might  bring down tho direst disaster on the  offender's head I This is the task  tho brown littlo people of Jnpnn  have sot beforo them, nnd a busy  time thoy must have of it,  Ono of'the most picturesque features of tho landscape of inner Japan  is tho multitude, of quaint temples  peeping oirt from thc shrubs and  grotesque trees on tho tops of green  hills or tucked beside dusty roud-  ways.

There are  small villages made up almost entirely of tiny temples, v ith E**y>  peaked roofs glistening brightly' in  tho clear Japanese sunlight amid  beautiful  gardens.  In his book on Japan, Lafcndio  Ilearn describes the temple of the  great Lord of tho Dead. King of the  Shadows, Emma-O, surrounded by  quaintly' clipped irces and bright  beds of flowers. Within its shadows,  almost hidden by dark draperies,  glaring in all its hidcousuess, is the  imago of the god, whoso face is so  terrible that when thc Japanese wish  to describe n person of horrible appearance thej' say : "His fa-cc is tho  faco of Einma-O."  Tho figure towers above all other  humble images in the, temple. From  tho wido open, wrathful mouth flows  a bright red beard ovcr a vermilion  robe. On his head is a thrce-lobed  crown of black und gold, and in his  hands he holds n sceptre.  According to a legend about this  image, there , was once a noted  imagemaker who died and visited thc  land of souls, . where hc found the  Lord, Emma-O, his terrible face distorted with rage because the dead  mnn never in his life had carved his  statue. His frown was so frightful  to behold that 1hc poor shrinking  soul expected instant annihilation.  Great was his relief, however, when  tho outraged deity pronounced his  sentence in the following words :  "Living you made no image of mc.  Go back to earth nnd make one, now  that thou has looked upon me."  Suddenly tho image-maker found  himself  alivo  again anil  the horrible  FIRMER GIVES  THE REASON TO  HE PINS HIS FAITH TO DODD'S  KIDNEY  PILLS.

The tem-  plo reached, th* suppliant lays his  offerings nt the feet of the gods, and  then stands by while the ministering  priests, clad in-loose garments as in-  'valids,. drink decoctions of certain  herbs and:i*oll on the floor before the  imago as a penance, for thc pilgrim's  sins.  These offerings, if_ from men, consist of gohic, or small strips of paper attached to a piece of rope and  supposed to be peculiarly pleasing to  the god.

R. brakeman  was the victim of what might have  proved a. fatal accident yesterday.  He was on top of the cars as his  train dashed along the main line at  Cherry Ci eek at the rate of 20 miles  an hour. On the side track was another train and as they passed Mott  turned to wave his hand to the oilier  crew.  Unfoi Innately he had not noticed  that the pipe at the water tank tbey  were approaching was hanging down  instead of being hauled up against the  tank and with his back turned to it he  bad no idea of his danger. As he was  waving his hand, the train reached  the tank and the next moment Mott  was swept off the train, the pipe  striking him on the sido of the head.  For a. time he was not missed, but  Conductor McArthur finally learned  he was not on the train and put back  for him. The unfortunate man luckily  fell among some bushes and so escaped  injuries that might have either killed  him outright or perhaps crippled hirrr  for life. He was unconscious from the  blow on the bead, and was at once  brought to the hospital hero, where he  i.s progressing favorably.  Considering the rapid rate at which  the train was running, that hc should  lie. swept to the ground and not sustain  anything more serious than concussion, escaping without ra broken hone  even, is astonishing. No doubt the  liuslies broke tlie- impacfoF tliiffall  and averted more serious..consequences to an unfortunate mishap.���������Kamloops Sentinel.  THE MARSHALL SANITARY MATTRESS.  PAT. SEPT.. 1900.
