HUME & CO,  Department Store.  The Keystone Mines at Downie  Creek   Developing into High  ���������Grade   Gold-Copper   Mines���������  About the Big Bend.  The Big Bend   disttiet,'to lhe north  of Revelstolie, is considered by mining  men and prospectors wiio have visited  that   section   .ind   who  liitve made ti  study of   its   miu'vellous   showing  of  gold,  silver, and copper ledges, to be  second to none   in   richness and magnitude on this   continent. ,. For years  the Hkhatcb has written of the great  wealth that   lies to the north of' this  city, and wliich otie day in the not far  distant  future    will   cause   such   an  excitement by its great value as will  be   heard    throughout   the   civilized  world.     It   has often been stated by  mining men from  across the line that  if the Big Bend district was located in  the   United   States   there   wonld   be  millions of money go into the development of the rich properties and would  be a camp teeming with enterprises of  every description, and one of the most  prosperous   sections   in   the whole of  Canada.     The   value   of  the disti ict  however, is known lo the  old timers  and   their  faith   in   ils   richness has  never faltered.  The Prince Mining Go. who own  valuable gold-copper properties in  Standaid Basin about' six miles up  Downie creek, have for the past six  years continued working with most  satisfactory, results, and a couple of  weeks ago the winter supplies were  shipped in to continue the work.  The Keystone Mines, Limited, owners of two valuable propcrtie.vone on  One-Mile creek, east of Downie, and  the other abuut seven miles up Downie Creek, have -had meu working on  their properties for the past nine  months with most satisfactory results.  On, the last trip of the s. s. Revclstoki*  (o Downie creek a cargo of supplies  wore taken up to continue the work  throughout tbe winter. The Keystone  Mines-Ltd., is a local company and the  managing director, Mr., Alex. Mcintosh, who is one of the chief stockholders is an old timerin the Big Bend  district and with an abiding faith in  the great possibilities of the camp has  worked quietly for years on the properties that arc now owned by this  company. The chief work has been  done on Onc-Mile-Creek, aboul five  miles from the Columbia river. This  group consists of five full claims, viz.,  the Keystone, Druid, 'While Rose,  Arotic and Snowflake. Tho work on  .this group has been done principally  on the Keystone claim and consists of  two tunnels, No.^1 being in 58 feet and  No. 2, 90"feet. The No. 2 tunnel runs  directly on the hanging wall of the  ledge and at the end of tlie tunnel a  shaft is now being, sunk on the ore  body and IS inches of high grade carbonates is exposed in the shaft which  has   now   reached   a  depth of 35 feel  cutting the formation Unit lhe precious  metals are found.  The Keystone Mines Limited have  two valuable properties and the work  now being ��������� done is adding to their  values. In a vory short space of lime  thc Keystone and Pinnacle groups  will give lo the Big Bend that place  in the mining world that its richness  in the precious motals deserves, and  will go a long way to advertise Hovelstoke the natural distributing point  for the Big Bond district and incidentally enrich tho fortunate stockholders  of the company'that owns and operates these properties.  Dedicated to the Mail  After all that has  been  written  on  the subject by tlio Liberal press of the  interior, Bob Green  is not "going  to  build an $S,0001iouse.     "Well,- what if  he did   build   a  house   in   Victoria?  Other cabinet ministers'have done so.  If we are not mistaken Fred  Ilutue,  when   in   the   cabinet/purchased   a  residence in Victoria, and no. ono  appeared   to   think   he    committed   a  serious crime by doing so.    Mr. Hume  is a Liberal.     If it is not wrong for a  Liberal   cabinet   minister   to   own  a  house, it surely Cannot be very wrong  for   a   Conservative.     If  Mr.   Green  chooses to spend his wages, or salary,  or income, in  adding to the comfort  and happiness of his family he should  ���������like   any   other   wage    earner���������bo  allowed   lo do so without criticism.  His public   acts  are   fit   subject  for  criticism: bis private lifo i.s his own.���������  ELECTIONS  Nugget.  Ely*.  8fi  and four foet of concentrating ore is  also exposed towards the hanging  wall. The load lias been cross-cut at  tlie end of the 09-foot tunnel and at  the end of IS feet the hanging wall  was not in sight whicli will give an  idea of the immense sizeStif the lead.  On the surface there is an enormous  showing of high grade galera on the  hanging wall, and there is no doubt  but when the hanging wall is reached  in the ci-oss-cut there will he a continuance of the values at the lower  depth which have been maintained  throughout the work already done.  On "the, surface the ore has averaged  from $21 to $150 in all values, principally gold. The work at tho mine is  in charge of Mr. H. "Wilcox, a well  known miner- of over thirty years  experience in all the big camps in; the  Western States, which is an evidence  that the best -work will obtain at the  mine in the-interests of the property  and the owners���������The Keystone Mines  Limited.  This same company are also owners  of the Pinnacle group of four claims  situated nbout seven miles up Downie  creek upon which considerable work  in development has boen done. Upon  tbe lead crossing this property there  is 10 foet of gold-copper ore which  gives big returns, and it is the intention of the company to shortly prosecute work upon this group with a  view to making it a high grade  shipper of ore.  The formation of the* Downie creek  district is schist, through which a  series of igneous rocks run, traversing  thc schist formation for miles in a  north-west and south-east trend, and  it  is in the true fissure vein cross-  -7S������  Hon.

Joshua Simpkins  A,New England comedy in four acts  will bo presented at the Opera House  on Tuesday next, Sept. 4lh. .��������� The  climax of stage realism, it is asserted,  has boen reached in the presentation  of the stirring sawmill scene .in  "Joshua Simpkins," and will, be pro-  ���������senled in: this ��������� city by a - peculiar  mechanical contrivance which has  never been introduced hero before.  This sawmill scene is claimed to be a  vast improvement over many other  attempts in a similar line. The: company also boasts of a splendid  orchestra which is carried ��������� complete  by the organization to aid in the  proper presentation of the play which  is said to abound with musical and  dancing spocialtios of a high order.  To assist " Joshua Simpkins" in  popularity, a band of music is also  carried, iind a concert is given which  is said to be far in advance of anything usually heard with a travelling  musical organization. The parade  will leave the theatre at tho usual  time and take the usual route; making  a burlesque parade. Prices, 25c. for  children, 75c. and $1 for adults. Plan  on view at Canada Drug & Book Co,  Premier Laurier Opens the  Campaign at Sorel in Quebec  ���������Elections Dates Announced  This Week.  Ottawa, Sept. 2S.���������The Dominion  election campaign will be opened by j  Premier Laurier at Sorel to-day. The  prime minister had a long conference  this morning with the governor-  general, at which, it is understood, hc  gave reasons which, in his judgment,  warranted a dissolution of the ninth  -6 - '   .    ���������    y  parliament of* Canada. It is presumed that theso were held to l.e  good and sufficient, as in the course  of a day or two His Excellency's  proclamation dissolving the present  Parliament will be issued. The reason  for.withholding the announcement of  the dates of nomination and polling  arises from tho fact that the government is still uncertain as to when the  voters lists for the unorganized district in Ontario will be ready, and as  there must be simultaneous polling  in all Ontario ridings, the government is, perforce, compelled to wait  the completion of the lists.  j fti fti r***Ti t'tt '*fr* ������***. .****. .*t. fti i'r-1*1*1 **l*i fti 1*1*11*1*1 fti i*fri T*t** *"!** '*fr- .****��������� .*t.

Galliher credit for having  the"acconnts of Carlson & Porter, subcontractors on the Lardo Gerrard  branch, paid ' hy the government.  Evon greater credit wonld be* given  Mr. Galliher wore it not for the fact  that his.Iaw partner is collecting from  5 to 10 per cont of the face v;Uue of  thoso accounts from ��������� the creditors of  Carlson & Porter. It is possible that  Mr. Wilsoh is legally entitled lo this  privilege, but at present we are unable  to see how ho gets into the game. It  is a woll established custom that the  client has the privilege of selecting his  legal'adviser and paying him, in this  case, it appears, the custom has .been  reversed, and tho lawyer retains the  client, paying himself for unsolicited  services out of funds appropriated by  the Dominion government for tho relief of creditors of a bankrupt firm of  railway contractors. 11 may be that  the firm of Galliher & "Wilson arc entitled to this 10 per cent, rake-oft',  owing to tho efforts of Mr. Galliher,  as member of parliament, in inducing  the government at Ottawa to reimburse tho creditors of Carlson & Porter  or it may be one of the numerous  methods peculiar to the Liberal party  of pay men t for services rendered. Tho  connection of tho partner of "W. A.  Galliher, M. P., with the distribution  of this money, and the reason for his  10 por cent,  commission,  is sadly  in  need of explanation. If it is an example of up-to dato Liberal methods  as practised in Ontario, the electors  want to know the why and the wherefore of it. The creditors of Carlson &  Porter would liko to know why they  .should bo compelled to pa)' for a legal  adviser who had not been retained by  theni���������Nelson Lodge.  RICH STRIKE  Made on the Famous Silver  Dollar���������Fully Four Feet .of  High Grade Galena is the  Outcome.  Chief Young, manager of the Comaplix Townsite Company, arrived in  thc city Inst evening and brought  news of another important strike on  the Silver Dollar property, owned by  the Elwood Tinworkers Gold Mining  Co., of Elwood, Ind.  Tho new strike shows four feet of  solid galena and has occasioned considerable excitement in tho camp.  Manager J. A. Darragh, of the company, who is on the property at  present is pushing work with the  utmost vigor and is naturally very  much pleased with the showings made  by the work already done, Tho Herald hopes to have full particulars by  next issue of the new strike.  "Heart and Sword."  No bettor evidence could bo given  Mr. Harold Nelson,, the eminent Canadian actor, of his immense popularity  in the city "of Revelstoke, than the  bumper house whicli greeted him on  Tuesday evening. The Opera House  was taxed to its utmost capacity with  an enthusiastic crowd eager to soo Mr.  Nelson and his talented company in  thoir production of that famous romantic military drama '���������Heart 'and  Sword," and in no way woro they disappointed, ilr. Nolson was seo.i to  advantage in tlio role of Prince Victor  of Hcinhault, first as tho self-indulgent  ruler and later in tho various heroic  and love scenes. Clifford Lane Bruce,  always a i'avorito with a Kevelstoke  audience, was equally good in thc  difficult role or thc traitor Stalbach,  while Miss Helen Scott made a most  charming Princess Sylvia, and was the  adrairntion of all. The balance of the  company wore all good and gave  excellent support. The scenery,  specially painted for this production  hy W. F. Hamilton of Now Vork, was  magnificent, while the-costumos were  most elaborate and beautiful.  An unploa-ant incident occurred in  tho middle' or tho second act. whicli  completely spoiled the effect of tho  scene and put a damper for a time on  thc whole performance. Thc interruption , was grossly insulting and  called forth* a- well-merited rebuke  from Air. Nolson, whose 'remarks wore"  loudly applauded. It is a malter.of  regret that some people cannot attend  any public plaeu. of amusement without showing their ignorance by making themselves a nuisance to the  public, insulting the performers and  spoiling the' performance. These disturbances arc generally attributed to  the small boy but it i.s morn often the  bigger boys, who call themselves  "men" who are the guilty enes.  Jlr. Nelson and company will return  hero On Thursday, Oct. 0th. on which  dato thev will appear in a thoroughly  metropolitan production of "Kaust,"  Goethe's immortal drama, and will no  doubt be greeted with another record  breaking house.

The surplice or rather waists  t.'ith Y-shaped openings at thc neck  arc coming rapidly into favor. It  is a becoming device und has the  charm of extreme novelty. After  such a long season of yokes, the V  with its attendant guimpo is welcome. A gown of mauve raw silk,  very rough and weuvy. had a waist,  which was a real .s'.ir]_>lico, although  there was no fulness in the way of  tucks and caugings at the shoulder  Ejaiiis. The fronts were edged with  bands of Persian trimming and a line  of heavy cording. A parallel band  of cording ran from tlm poiut of the  shoulder   to   the   waist   line. This  gave a certain substantial elfect and  prevented the fronts from pouching.  This is an unforgivable sin now as  every one knows. -No Mouse must  pouch this summer. The guimp and  collar were of heavy lace, very deep  in tone. A shirred girdle was attached to the extremely pointed  waist, and the skirt was laid in  small 'plaits, with a plain front  panei.  Pointed bodices are seen every-  - where. Wc nre more oi less emancipated from tin- exaggerated drooping  holt, but we poiut just ns much as  ever in the new girdles. Thc pointed girdle has the advantage from  the aesthetic standpoint, however,  since it extends upward to the natural waist line. Thc drooping belt  made a short woman look shorter,  especially if she were inclined to  stoutness. Few women realized this,  but went on wearing tho drooping  belt, thinking that it made them  longer waisted. Of coarse it did, hut  the shortness of ca well corseted woman is nearly always below the  waist. A long mirror, full-length, if  possible, should bc in every woman's dressing-room. One should  know how she looks from head to  foot.  It is noted that gowns for tennis  and poll* are moro graceful and feminine than fhey wore of yore. .Sports  arc business like and call for simple,  easy, gowns, hut tliere is no renson  why the cut. ancl design should bo  ultra severe. Almost nny pf the  short, tight-weight shirt-waist suits  are worn for tennis gowns. Linen  is a capital material. Tho average  good player dislikes to be bothered  with trimmed sleeves or high collars,  but these features do not appear on  all linen suits. For golf the plaited  skirts so much worn aro hardly suitable. Kither are they beautiful on  iho windy lints. Hats" must be small  and plain. Foe tennis nothing is  and plain. F^r tennis nothing is  prettier .than, linen caps. .  The latest, tiling In neck lingoria is  ���������the turnover plaiting of mull - or  Chinn silk. Theso little collars aro  usually laco edged, and most, of them  are sold in n set with cuffs to match.  Almost nny one who wears a turnover or Kton collar, finds these ruffles becoming.  To wear with white shirt waist  or shirt waist suits lir.cn collars and  embroidered ties are always cool  looking and agreeable, especially  since lhe all-white fashion became  popular. At several of tho large  Khops quantities of these aro offered  at bargain prices. Keally beautiful  mull ties with fine embroidery are  for sule as low as fifty cents and a  dollar.  There are indications that the  dainty pink ond blue underwear is  beginning to bc worn. One chop displays a number of the pretty garments, ond they arc said to bo selling well.

Dr. Lapponi, whose skill proscrvo'd  tho life or lhe lato Pope Jj:o X1.1I to  tho great ago of f'2, und to whose  care the health of the prtiwnt Poiv,  His llolincF.'i Pius -\., is conflilud,  has written the remarkable hitler of  which tlio following is a. translation :���������  "I certify that I have tried Ur.  Williams' Pink I'ills in four cases of  the simple Anaemia, of development.  After a few weelcu of treatment, the  result came fully up to my expectations. For that reason 1 shall not  fail in thn future to extend the us*e  of this laudable preparation not only iu tlio treatment of other morbid  forms of the category of Anaemia or  Chlorosis, but also in cases of Neurasthenia  and   the  like."

It would lie impossible to exaggerate thc importance of this opinion.  Dr. Lapponi's high ollicial position  places liis professional competence  above question, and it is certain  thut ho did not write as above without weighing his words, or without  a full sense of the effect his opinion  would  have.  The "simple anaemia of development" referred to b.v Dr. Lapponi is  of. course that tired, languid condition of young girls whose development to womanhood i:; tardy, and  whose health, at the period of that  development, 'is so often imperilled.

At no place in the world is a  greater gathering of sharpshooters  crer round than at llisley, writes  Frederic Walker in The London llnil.  On tho pine-clad Surrey commons  thero arc now assembled thc picked  marksmen  of  the empire.  The presence of the men from overseas represents a, year's patient  shooting, for numbers attending arc  limited mid tlio competition for solution  is keen.  Thia year tho great brigade of  sharpshooters is again comprehensive  in its collectivism. The sharp drawl  of tho sons of the pine from Northwest Canada contrasts oddly with  the soft tongue of tho New Zealand^  j er; tho rifleman from the Punjab  rubs shoulders with the West Indian,  | while Uganda and tho Capo jostle  with Paris and Aberdeen.  In no assembly is tho mixture of  dialects so noticeable, for the harsh  burr of the northern counties, the  Gaelic tongue, and the purring of thc  Celt mingle with purest cockney and  tho strango "bat"  from overseas.  A great working hive is Bislcy. A-  thousand men arc firing to-day, and  two thousand to-morrow.

Jessie turned shud-  :'orlng from it.  Seeing the cause of her distress, he  drew her back among the bundles of  hark, where, by displacing some and  piling others, he made a screened recess and arranged a scat for her.  Her thick, irregular heartbeats became quiet and rhythmic, and a delicious calm stole upon her. He sat  hy hcr and took her hand; sh'o did  not withdraw it, his touch was too  healing. The storm crashed furiously on, the rain rushed with a  hissing -splash on tho leaves all  round tho shed, 'the air was still like  the heavy vapor of molten brass;  yet Jcssio wns undisturbed, her delicate cheek was tinged like an infants  and her breath came with the soft  ease of a sleeping child's, sho could  not fiec the distracting dazzle of thc  lightnings in the pleasant dusk  among tlio bark-bundles which emitted a wholesome forest odor.

"I must," ho replied, taking her  hands and speaking earnestly; "you  have given mo tho right, you must  not trille with me.

They wero . completely isolated,  fenced round for the next hour at  least by that blessed storm; thoro  was plenty of time, without spoiling  that perfect'1 moment, "to look before and after, to pine for what is  not." Besides, what could express  her lovo and confidence more than !  that silent surrender of herself with  the instant solace that -his* touch so  evidently gave.

Sho rose and left the dim recess,  sh'o would have gone hut that hc detained her with gentle force. Her  slight figuro was outlined on thc  storm-rent sky whicli hud now no  more terrors for her.  "Foolish child! What bus frightened you?" ho said, with" infinite tenderness; "dearest Jessie, think for a  moment, don't bo reckless. Don't  ruin my happiness, don't throw away  my hint hope.

Stny, Jessie, stay, I  will leave you, only stay in the shelter;" but she wns o!T through tho  tangle of wet undergrowth und into  tlio main road; ho followed, then  stopped, knowing that further pursuit  would only distress her.  Just then the rain, which had died  nearly away, changed to a fierce  crncklo of hail-stones rebounding  from branch to brunch and denting  tho baro earth where thoy struck;  the storm gathered its dying energies for a linni outburnt. A blue  sheet of light revealed towering  cloud-musses above, colored llio  whito hail-storm  for a momont  ! on her; sho    said  anguish  "Wo will go to Switzerland," he  added, "marriage laws aro easy  there."  "Wc cannot marry, you have given  your    father    your word  of honor,"  showed him the last glimpse ol" Jessie's dress before sho was engulfed iu  the double darkness of storm and  forest; and by tho time ho removed  his hand from his  fierco white zig-zag  heaven to earth, accompanied by a  peal of reverberating thunder which,  seemed as if it would never end.  And Jossio was under trees in tho  very' heart of tho storm!  Ho wont back to the shed and  lonnt against the bark stacks, intently gazing in th'o direction which  she had taken; ho" was palo and had  a  solemn,   resolute   look.  "Whatever happens," hc said aloud,  and as if calling unseen presences  tb witness, "Jossio must now bo  my lawful  wife."  Tho long unequal duel was at an  end, but tho battle was not. to the  strong.  When  tlio storm had  at last rolled  away,  and   ho   had     left his  shelter,  | the figure  of a    woman  issued  from  I among the piles of bark not far from  TESTING   CREAM.  A correspondent of Hoard's '.Dairyman asks tho following questions,  which arc nnswered by I'ruf. E. IT.  Farrington.  "How can tho creamery arrive at  the cream patron's test, if one day  his cream may lost 80 per cent., another 20 per cent., or '10 per cent'.'  A composite samplo is taken each  'day.

Horses neigh and rear upon their hiiid feet while fast asleep;  dogs bark and growl, und in many  other ways exhibit all their characteristic passions. It is highly proba-  blo that nt such times the remembrance of the chafe or of a combat  in passing tlirough the dogs' minds.  Besides the abovo signs of fleeting  pain, auger, and excitement, these j  noble creatures often manifest signs I  of kindness, playfulness, und'of ul-j  most every other passion. Huminaiit I  animals, such as tho sheep nnd thei  cow  oil offenders, and even persons in high  places have been whipped.  VICTIMS  OFTEN  KILLED,-  Not infrequonl.y, too the laying on  'of ih is hideous weapon has resulted  in death. i'olitical offenders often  found surcease from earthly sorrow.  under the barbarous punishment, oi  iho knout. In the communes a sentence to be knonted was decreed for.  almost all kinds of offenses, from  petty theft to highway robbery, tho  number of lashes varying, of course,  with the enormity of the misdemeanors. But it now npivars tliat this  inhuman .scourging, after centuries of  use and abuse, is to bo abolished,  and thus tho subjects of the great  white czar have a fear worse thn 11  death lifted from their minds.  A little over two years ago a book ���������  entitled. "Prisoners of Russia" was  written by the late Dr.. Benjamin  Howard. " It was the outcome of  visits made by that scientist to tlio  dominions of tlie czar to' study criminology and penology. The book contains a remarkable description of  punishment by the knout. The victim in the case was tlie'pcr'-clratni-  of many brutal murders, and was  classed as a criminal of the lowest  and most dangerous 'kind.  torture is hescrieed:  In the following manner Dr. ITow-i  nrd' vividly peu-pictirred the torriblo  knoutiiig  operation :  "Being divested oi" his manacles hy.  the guard, the man laid himself full  length downward. : By straps passed  through perforations in the table, ho  was immovably secured to it by tho  ankles, legs, chest and arms. About  eight puces in front of the kabyla  stood from right to left, the corpor/  ill's guard, the governor, the civil  surgeon and myself. Close besido  the culprit, on the loft, stood a subordinate ollicial, known as "tho-  marker,' with a large memorandum  book in liis hand.  "All being prepared, the executioner entered and.tried the knout in 'thu  air, carefully measuring liis stroke.  Beforo'-" the command to begin was  fairly- oui of tlie governor's rnoutii  it wns drowned by the shrieks and  yells.,of' the culprit. I quickly began to appreciate what had appeared to me mere oscontatiousness in tho  preliminary stroke practice. For,  having once been started, the executioner's strokes were as steady, ns  rhythmical, as precise as if done by.  a steam engine, and as unrelenting.  Such was the precision of them that  at the end of the fifth stroke thero  wore exactly fifteen lines on the culprit's* back, scoring as evenly ns if  thoy liad been'marked with a piece  of clinlk.  BODY LOOKS BLOODLESS.  "Tho force of the blows so completely oxjK-iled tho blood from tho  sun'neo that with clinlk the lines  could not bo mado whiter. Uy the  wrist maneuver the blows were applied wiih such carefully graded force  that nt tho end of tho first stage tht:  part already attacked looked as if  covered with an even sheet of whito  paper. Thore was not a drop of  blood.  ' 'The    second stage commenced  na   the blood l.-og-.in to liow, and ns thi.s  proceeded more and more freely the  victim appeared to revive and to  come to life again. As a spectacle,  this was the most horrible part of  the puniMuiiont, though for tiio victim it was much le*-s painful. At  every blow each of the three-knoutod  thongs, lite the claws and honk of  a vulture, pecked out fragments of  dripping llcsh, which were fcattored  in nil directions by the backward  swing of tho cruel lush. To avoid  them tho ollieers, who were in whilo  uniforms, nnd myself, hod to step  back and bnck. for. u considerable'distance.  "After the skin of! the side attacked  had been completely detnehed and  scattered tho screams of tho poor  wretch subsided into groans nnd  sobs. Thc excavation, now about  tlio size and depth of a soup plute.  being filled wilh overflowing blood,  which poured ovor the edge of tho  table, the force of the executioner's  blows was much deadened. The deeper and 'deeper the plowing the less  and the less was the pain."  , SIGHT IS SICKENING.  Dr. Howard said .that thoro was a  halt nfter the fiftieth Insh, and thai;  the physicians examined the victim  Finding that bis life wus not in por-  to pay with his lifu for his effort! jil. tho punishment then went'on. in  against slavery, he being executed fo.'ja sickening way, until ninety-nine  his share in the plot to liberate th!!

Mr. Borden, on the 20th of May last,  urged the Government, lo "build the  Transcontinental Railway as a* state-  owned work, it being virtually paid  for by Canada and presented to a  Corporation.    He moved:  "That the Transcontinental line  from the Atlantic to thc Pacific, be  entirely owned and - under thc control  ofthe people of Canada."  Of course the party lash cracked and  all the Government supporters bowed  their necks, presented their backs and  took the punishment. Mr. AVilliam  Galliher was right in it.  CONSISTENT  INCONSISTENCY  The controllers of the Iron and steel  4 works, at Sault St. Marie, claim that  they will soon be able to roll out 500  tons of street rails per day. More  power to their elbows: but why should  British Columbia be asked to pay the  piper? AVe have iron, fluxes, water  power: but our eastern friends have  lieen given a big start and tho Province is again handicapped. Seven  dollars a ton duty: nine dollars a ton  liounty. How is that for a Cobdonitc  Premier and an up-to-date free trade  Government.  ���������PARTY-BETORE-GO UNTRY,  Certainly it  seems that   those  support the  Government at  Ot  who  ttawa.  whether Parlia.iient hn.-' been convened or otherwise ��������� are preparcil to  put party liefure country, every time.  A vote wa*' recorded during the pa.sl  that merits thorough consideration  aud those who opposed the motion,  deserve condign punishment at the  ballot boxes. It will be remembered  tliat the Grand Trunk Pacific authorities, gave contracts to a number of  American surveyors, shutting out  Canadians, so far as possible. Finding  that thisoutragc: was being committed,  Mr. Clare. (2r.th May,  1001.)  moved:���������  "That in all cases were persons nre  employed in connection with the surveys for the construction of thc said  Transcontinental Railway���������preference  shall lie given to British subjects, by  birth oi- naturalization."  Mr. Puttee, M. P. for AVinnipeg,  made an earnest appeal to bis fellow  members, to support thc motion; bul  no; every so called Liberal voted with  his party and against his country.  and strange to say, the duties on  imports are almost within a shade of  what they were under what was known  as a Conserva'.ive Protection regime !  The official announcement now mado  that the steel works at  Marie are to receive $7 per ton protection and $9 per ton bounty on all  steel rails produced, will certainly  staggers free traders who have pinned  their faith to those now, in power.  Nothing for tho AVost however, that  was to be expected, when British  Columbia : members wore utterly in-  dill'erent. In fact, thoy till voted  against.'i reasonable motion made by  tho leader of the Opposition, Mr. Jt. L.  Borden:  ."

Have  not   the labour organizations  been   solid   factors in sustaining  Mr.  Clarke?     Have   they    not   in    their  reports thanked him for his devotion  to  their interests; he has been elected  by their votes very frequently and we  inclino   to   the  belief  that a similar  experience   awaits    his     candidature  again.     The day  has gone by when  any  strong organization  can bo used  for   election   purposos   and  then cast  aside.     People   read,  learn,  observe,  discuss all  issues and all men, and the  labour element in the remotest part of  Hit! Dominion knows pretty well what  is transpiring at  what   are   called the  "eenll'o.s   of iiite'.ligonoe."   The   "Mail  and   Kiiipire," being the chief Opposition  organ  in  Ontario, evido.illy has  some  misgivings as to the  ,".iiiu>iini:e-  tiiont   that   in    some    constituencies  labour candidates would be nominated.  It has  been   done   before  in  order to  assist Government nominees, splitting  the vote and allowing the Liberal to be  elected.    The day has almost gono by  for this   too,  and  we  incline  to the  believe   that   wherever  a candidate's  labour   record is in his favour, hc will  receive   earnest   and  ardent support  from  tliose whose cause he espoused  when   friends   weie necessary.   Take]  for   instance    this    constituency   of  ICootcnay;  the   parliamentary record  of   the  sitting member is such as no  thinking   man   could ��������� approve of;  no  doubt, some   extreme   Liberals would  like to   bring about  a   three cornered  contest, thereby as they imagine, concentrating not only the Liberals, but  those opposed to the rights and aspirations of-labour, upon the Government  nominee.    This would make it easier  no doubt,   for   Mr.   Galliher; but  his  ,., c        friends   must   first   catch   flsh befoie  '   e' ' they* proceed with the frying process.

NOTHING FOR  BRITISH COLUMBIA  Sir "Wilfrid Laurier was presented  with the Cobden Free Trade Medal,  and yet his Government has collected  more revenue from the present tariff  than   any   preceding   administration,  .Several of onr Kastorn contemporaries are discussing the question of  Labour candidates at the approaching  general election, and do so in a spirit  of earnestness vcry gratifying indeed.  Wo take it though, that our contemporaries do not precisely size up the  situation or the mean ing of those who  have labour interests at heart. The  Toronto Mail and Kmpiro commenting  upon the subject says :  "Let us take, for instance, the caso  of Mr. F.. F. Clarke, the member for  West Toronto. Mr. Clarke did not  claim to be the representative of any  pellicular class, yot wliero is a more  si al wart .'ind more influential friend of  labor? Is there ever an occasion  when a service can be rendered to the  loan who toils that Mr. Clarke is not  found eagerly and effectively working  on his behalf? Labor cannot afford to  be unjust or ungrateful to those who  are its best friends. If, for political  purposes, an effort is made to place  labour in an attitude of hostility to  men who in season and out of season  seek to advance its interests, it is certain tlie schcrlio will fail. There is too  much common sense in the average  man to permit of such amistake. AVe  do not judge friendship by professions,  bnt by actions. And so it must lie  with every class and interest in the  State. To be well represented labor  must search out tliose who serve it  best, and then reward thcm with its  THE CLOVEN HOOF  In criticising the Government's  record so far as consistency is con-  corned, one socks in vain for an issue  standing forth 'prominently, to prove  that at any time they wero consistent  in anything except, perhaps, inconsistency. Some of the -niost glaring  departures were opposition professions  of regard and sympathy for the work-  ingman* but, in power, double dealing  and subterfuge. The first effort made,  after the so-called Liberals attained  powor, was an endeavor to balk legislation introduced by Mr. Geo. Taylor,  Conservative M. P.'..for Leeds, Out.  Finding this could not be accomplished  Mr. Cowan, Liberal M..*-*T.\.for Soutii  Essex*, was pushed to the"front wMlh  another bill (No. ii, Jlr. Taylor's being  No. I) entitled "Alien Labour Prohibit ion." Sir Wilfrid -Laurier did not  care for either bantling: but the feeling was too strong and he succumbed,  making these remarks, however:  "I am in no sympathy whatever,  with this legislation, and it is with  extreme regret that I have come to  the conclusion that we should follow  so unfortunate an example.*'  The Premier referred to the Corliss  (U. S.) bill and other legislation antagonistic to Canadians. Kveirtually,  both propositions were sent to a committee,-the result being the bill of  1S07, was sent to the Senate. There  the Hon. R. XV. Scott. Secretary of  State, denounced lhe measure with  much bitterness, riddling it fore and  aft, and urging the Senate to reject it,  as nothing but a disgrace to civilization. The Conservatives were not  slow to' see through thc coimpiiacy,  ..���������tiioh was, while letting the bill  through the Commons, to slaughter it  in the Senate.

In lfXVi Senators  l.mightjeil and lieique, introduced antiunion bills in the Senate, both hei i'i x  cuiried by liberal voles nnd ullimalcly  coming to grief in the Commons. The  past session, however, was more significant than any other, so far as the  Labor question was concerned:���������Sir  William Mulock introduced a hill dealing with contract labor and prohibiting foreigners (only United States,  however,) from accepting contract,  positions on railways and other,.works  in Canada. This measure went through  the Commons by easy stages but was  kept back until a day before prorogation, when it went lo tho .Senate, arid  some of the Lihcrill Senators, under  the veil of friendship, slaughtered the  bill by talking it to death. fn fact,  the members of the Commons were  preparing to meet the Governor  General in the upper Chamber, while  Sir William Mulock's bill was being  murdered. Strange to sny, that very  day tho Senate found time to vote over  $77,000,000 of the people's money, only  requiring a few hours lo do this���������  wliile lhe Liberal majority forgot their  duty and their pledges to the laboring  classes. Sir Wilfrid and tho Government chuckled and laughed in tlieir  sleeves, the Grand Trunk Pueillu  triumphed, but there was no protest  heard from tliose who professed to he  friends of Canadian workmen.

Koiv,     when   I,  Thornton     Hall-til.  invoke  on tiio morning ot the day with  ���������which this story deals, 1 felt precisely lho sumo ns I usually do on  ���������returning to my conscious existence.  I wisir to emphasise this fuel, and  thc ciiu.-illy undoubted one that I  ���������am ix young man of steady, regular  habit.*;; also, 1 have all iny life been  in enjoyment of excellent health.  Therefore the reader may spare nim-  s</lf the trouble of offering a commonplace nnd iineompliinentary explanation  of my  strange experience.  On opening my oyes wy first  thought was of thc letter I had received on the previous evening from  "Messrs. Dixon and Rutherford, solicitors', requesting the favor of nn  tarty call on a matter of somo im-  ���������portance. I hirf lieard of Messrs.  Dixon and Rutherford, for my poor  'old uncle, Tom Halbut, had insisted  bn employing them to manage the  very little bit of house property, on  the income of wliich ho managed to  live���������a useless extravagance, against  .which I had often protested.  I had not heard of the old man for  some time; but I concluded that the  'business on which they wished to see  "me had something to do with him,  end as I dressed I whistled a duet  ���������with the blackbird outside my win-  'dow, and determined to ask Powell  'llio chief clerk at our place, for leave  to call on  them  during  th'o day.  In fact, it was not until T arrived  nt the office that I began to be mystified.  C! rigson was the onlj' one who Had  arrived when I entered the oflice,  nnd he favored me with that idiotic  wink upon which he prides himself so  vastly.  "Hallo, my gay and giddy wanderer!"  ho  said.      "How  goes  it?"  "It goes well." I remarked; "but  I am not aware that I am anybody's gay and giddy wanderer."  "Sol to-day." he said; "but what  about yesterday?"  I came to the conclusion that Grig-  son was on what ho elegantly describes as tlio "having slakes,"  whereby, by a subtle process of conversation, he inveigles ono into asking a perfectly natural question,  which he answers in an obviously ridiculous fashion, and forthwith' abandons himself to a paraxvsm of laughter. -������������������  "Yesterday!" I repeated. "Ah!"  -And turned, to find myself confronting   Powell;."  "The firm want to seo.you .at eleven, this morning, Halbut," he.said  quietly.  "All right." I replied. "By tho  way. irr. Powell, I have a little  lavor to  beg  of you."  "I don't think you had hotter ask  any favors." he said trenchantly,  "until you've seen the firm���������at any  rate, don't ask them of me."  "Oh!" t suid. ".Something wrong  ���������eh?      What  is it,  Mr.  Powell?"  1 was. surprised at tho manner in  which Powell turned upon me, for  Powell is a decent fellow, and is seldom sharp with anyone.  "Don't pretend innocence," lie snid.  "Vou know how strict they nre with  regard  to  absence from   the  ollice."  ���������'.Hut *' I commenced: but by-  then ho had wnlko:! away, leaving me  puzzled   beyond   words.  Surely Powell had not descended to  taking a leaf out of C'rig-on's book;  but yot. ii he were not, he must  know that 1 liad novor absented myself irom my place without obtaining  leave.  lly  then   the  others  had   arrived.  Aj^yajteJ   for   vou  Eo!.-:aii>   hush  descended  on   thc  oflice, i bad!��������� Jessica."  I   repeated,   in   astonishment.   "Why  I saw the commissionaire was regarding us unfavorably, and it  it s'truck mo that I might, by means  nf this unsavory-looking individual,  bo ablo to discover something about  the mysterious yesterday.  I dragged hint out into  the street.  "Kow, then," I said, "what did  I promise yon a fiver for yesterday?"  "Wliat did you promise roe a liver  for yesterday?" he repeated. "Oh,  como off, guv'nor! AVhy, for savin'  you from the cops���������for resctiin' you  from the  'and' of justice, nnd "  Sly heart sank. Evidently yesterday had nol. boon altogether as blank  ns it certainly was in my memory.  "Will you have the goodness to  toll mu what. I Mas doing to give  you occasion to rescue me from the  polico?"  T asked.  "Well," lui said, after regarding  mo for a moment in blank dismay,  "you're a good 'un, you tiro, and no  error! Per'aps you'll deny a.s you  was trying to embrace an old gent  because you snid 'e reminded you  of your Uncle Tom! Por'aps you'll  say as you never give mo this 'etc  card! Hut it's no good, guv'nor. My  pal Sum's in this along of mo, an'  wo 't>:l too much trouble gettin'you  safe and snug clown our court under  the very noso of tho cops: and wo  ain't goin' to stand no bluff, so I  tell you straight!"  Ho nourished a piece of pasteboard  under my eyes, and I glanced at it.  Undoubtedly it was my own business  card, and on the back wus an agreement to pay the bearer, Mr. James*  Hopkins, iive pounds "for services  rendered," in my own handwriting.  Phew!  I    faintly asked:  "Was I "  And,  seeing that words failed mo to complete tlio sentence, Mr. Hopkins ob"  ligingly did so. "Under thc influence? Well, no, guv'nor. I don't  think you was. You was strango  and excited like, but you did not  seem lonicky!"'  I breathed again. Perhaps things  hnd not been  so bad,  aftor all.  "Here is ten shillings on account."  I said. "I must look further into  this matter beforo I pay the rest,  for I declare I have not the slightest  recollection of any of the things  j-ou mention."  "All rigiit, guv'nor." snid Mr.  Hopkins, after deep consideration.  "But look hero. I sliall wait on you  agin tor-morrow for the rest. and  if you don't cash up mo an' Sam '11  put you away, and you'll got it 'ot.  I never see a gent in such a rage  as tlio old chap you said was like  your  Undo Tom."  And with a few more threats he  slouched  off.  My mental condition was now  worse than ever. However I had  spent Tuesday, the 26th inst., it  was evidently not in a creditable  manner; but Mr. James -Hopkins liad  givon me a. clue. A. had-'mentioned  my Uncle Tom. Could it liave been  that I had visited Messrs. Dixon'  and Rutherford, and have received  from them news which would in  somo measure account for my strange  aberration? '.. I felt that I absolutely must ascertain" the. suspense was  too awful to be borne.

IVhcn Lloyd's father told him that  he had sold tho farm, nnd that thoy  were going to spend .tho summer  camping out,  Lloyd  was very  'much  delighted. His father and two other M" ������ "'ining camp wns too rough for  men had formed ;i partnership aiid!!,is ������'���������"��������������� sold out his .share to his  were going to spend the summer In! two partners, and. with" Lloyd and  mining. They bought their provi-j '''** mother, "returned to their farm,  sions and mining outfit,  and    loaded' which   tliey  were   now ablo  to     keep  went  to  sleep  in  camp   that    r.ight.   tone.     Gradually ho gets livelier and  "Next day one of the men drovo   over   livelier until the reading    becomes a  to the nearest town with a wagon to  buy picks and shovels, fuse and  blastings powder. They called tho  mine 'Lloyd's Luck,' though his papa  said it ought to bo called 'Lloyd's  Pluck," because ho had worked so  hard. Several mining experts for  big companies had assays made, and  it proved a vory valuable claim. Indeed, so valuable was it that in tho  courso of a month Lloyd's father,  who had all along felt that  tho   lifo  up as it never had been before, and  to send Lloyd to college a a soon us  lie became old  enough to enter.  tliem in two wagons, tliey started.  Lloyd's father und mother, with  Lloyd nnd the provisions, wero in  one wagon; in tlie other were the  two partners, with the picks, shovels  gold pans and the lumber for sluice  boxes and  rockers.  When, after several days, traveling,  they arrived at tlie place where they  intended  to mine,  tho men cut down  somo  trees,  and  in     the course of a    week  built a log cabin;      They    had! Something    About   the Persecuted  QUEER RELIGIOUS SECTS  ANCESTOR    WORSHIP  COMMON  IN*  JAPAN.  planned to work a "placer claim.  It had been mined long ago, whon  gold was first discovered In California, but not very thoroughly. Lloyd  liked to watch the men shovel the  dirt into thc sluice boxes and seo the  swift muddy water wash the rocks  and coarso gravel out at tho otiier  end. They found the 'dirt' was not  very rich', and somo days wlion they  made a 'cleanup' they would find a  very small quantity of gold dust in  their riffles, loss than half an ounce  for a whole day's run.  Lloyd soon  grow tired  of watching  tho men work; ho wished to do somo  Doukhobors   or   Spirit  Wrestlers.  It would bo almost impossible to  find two civilized countries in which  so many weird religious sects  abound as in Russia and Japan.  Each country lias its orthodox religion; in Japan it is, now Buddhism,  in Russia tho Greek Church claims  the great majority.'- Each of these  great bodien., however, arc contending with smaller sects and doing all  in their power to wipe their adherents off tho face of the globe. In  Russia the persecution of the Spirit  mining nil by himself; so his father,| Wrestlers and-thc Khylstics has pass-  one evening aftor his own work, od all bounds, and makes the  mado liim a littlo rocker out of the! martyrs of old look vory small bc-  thin   light    boards    of a dry    goods; side    the     followers     of  these  sects.  box, and every day Lloyd would  play he was a miner. Finally - ho  curried his rocker up tho stream  nearly a quarter of a milo above  where his father was working.  Ono of the men had called to him.  'lTollp, rocker, where are you going  with  that,  boy?'  Lloyd looked back and said. ���������We're  For years they havo been driven  from pillar to post in a most ruthless manner.  Whenever they managed to settle  in a district, generally some faraway spot that had been avoided by  others as unfit for human habitation,  and made it by thoir marvellous industry  it    prosperous   village,     they  going up the creek to find a claim of: would     bo  pounced     upon '   ny     tho  soldiers. Shots, whips, and sabres  nnd galloping horses would announce  their doom.  ���������With' the fierco brutality of tho  Church and Stato it seems almost  miraculous that theso humble worshippers    could    have survived,    and  our  own.'  'Well  go  ahead,   and good  luck  to  you!'  thoy called after him.  Lloyd did not iind much " 'color'  along the creek,   so    lie carried    his  rocker up a dry gulch that led into  that  stream.  Next day Lloyd dug till his   hands;.yet their number increases yearly,  wore blistered and his back ached.  Ho had been digging a' hole where the  ground was' wet and soggy, so tliat  lie could get, water to rock with.  When ho went back next morning lie  found that the hole was nearly full  of muddy water that had scoped in  from tlio spring. ������������������������������������There was enough  water to run . the rocker for some  timei '.:������������������.  Ih one place at the lowest part of  tho gulch, near where his rocker was  set, a rock cropped out a few inches.  ���������Ho. did not know at thc time, but  ho had gono to the best place possible. A few inches below the surfaco  ho struck'bedrock. II. was quite irregular.      He     took  his  shovel     and  SPIRIT    WRESTLERS.  The Spirit Wrestlers were first noticed about the sixteenth century.  Then they wero in such very small  numbers that little notice was taken  of theni; but soon their rapid development alarmed tho Church and  State, and the organized sysematic  form of persecution was begun. What  has always made the attacks upon  them so much worse is that they  must kill neither man m r beast.  They therefore carry no aims, and  refuse point-blank to defend themselves when attacked. This may bo  the very, cause': for which tlioy are  persecuted,  as Russia can  tolerate no  ^ay cliant in    which the whole congregation joins.  When he considers he has worked  thorn all up ho begins io jump, and  before long tho whole congregation  is on tho move, beginning slowly  and gradually increasing the pace- as  their excitement grows till the whole  crowd is joining in a mad and wild  danco that would rival tho war  dances of tlio most savage tribes in  the world.

Skoptsy is another strange belief  founded on the literal interpretation  of Matt. xix. 12. The followers are  all unmarried and increas*o thoir following from tho great mass of poor  and unsuccessful.  JAPANESE SECTS.  In Japan Shintoism is still disputing the ground witli lluddhism. The  Shintos worship thoir ancestors, nnd  make great sacrifices to tho dead  heroes. Shinto means the way of  the gods, and the followers of it believe if they consult their own heart*!  nnd follow truly the dictates of  thorn, they will nover go astray.  Thej' havo many demigods, but believe that the Mikado is the dirocl  descendant of the sun-goddess.  Their shrines are built of white  marble, and are noted for their lack  of tho ordinary adornments of theso  places. In the sanctuary thero is  only a plain mirror, which is there  to represent' the human heart, as  thoy conceive it, pure, placid, and  untroubled. In worshipping thoy  stand before the mirror, and see  themselves* reflected in it, and so  think they- gain that great knowledge���������tho knowledge of self. Loyalty  and patriotism aro tlieir two strong  points. Shintoism discards tho belief in original sin, and steadfastly  holds to the innate goodness and  god-like pursuits of tho human soul.  Among tho unwritten religions of  Japan aro :���������Shamanism, Mythical  Zoology, Felichism, Phnllicism, and  Tree and serpent worship.  Followers of Shamanism can bo  found nlso in any port of Chinese  Asia. The followers of Shamanism  believe in the presence and powers of  multitudes of spirits', both good and  evil, and thoy are always trying by  strange ways and sacrifices to keep  tho evil spirits satisfied and tho good  ones on their side. 'i'hey employ  many queer devices for warding off  tlie evil ones, pointed sticks called  inaos arc stuck in tho ground by  farmers - when they desire their crops  to flourish, for whore the inao is tho  evil ones dare not intrude.  Tn most of the religions of Japan  Shintoism and Buddism can be traced; from time to timo each prophet  or loader has added to or taken front  tho original tenets, but one thing  that is noticeable in all is tho strong  adherence  of the  followers.  Whatever  their  sect  is,  they    hold  to it hard    and    fast,  and    nothing  not even death  or,  worse still,    tor  ture,   will  chango     them when    once  they   are   convinced  do to risk mv position at, Robson"!

You  need no second glanco at him to seo  thnt here is ono who can accomplish  things. Thoro is none of tho softness of the typical Corean in his face  and yet there is nothing revealing  the character or cupidity nnd tyranny universally attributed to him.  Tlio cast of his features is Mongolian. Ono understands aftei* seeing  him how thu coolio bccauio head of  the State.  Vi speaks no English, but ho  shook hands English fashion, and  beckoned us to squat down on tho  mats in the adjoining room. My interpreter humbled his forehead in the  dusjt before him.  Yi did tlio same to me, and I replied ns best I could. Truth to toll,  I had real work to stow wy legs  away in unobstrusive fashion, as tho  others did. liel'ore our talk was  over my violently compressed muscles were aching in way that sadly  interfered with my enjoyment. If  you doubt it, try the experiment of  sitting on tlie ground for an hour  with your legs  tucked under you.  Tho Minister promptly crossrexam-  incd me; Did I believe there would  be war? When did I think war  would come? Why did I'think so?  What were the Japanese doing? This  was courtesy on. his part, and courtesy equally demanded that I should  disclaim all knowledge, he knowing  nil befoi'o, and yot should tell him  what I know. Question as to my  own movements were easier answered.  Then Yi spoke, emphatically. "We  believe there will bo peace," ho said.  "There will be no war." I gazed at  him. Did h'e not know that but an  hour before thc Corean wires had  been cut at Masampho by Japanese  troops landing there? Was lie unaware that at this moment Japanese  transports were stealing up from  Tsushima, full of armed men, that  Russian transports were filling with  soldiers at Port Arthur?  A GREAT CAREER.  Twenty years ago, and loss, as I  havo snid, Yi was a coolie. Friends  of my own can remember hi in when  ho was engaged in tho most menial  offices in tho yard of a great Corean.  His master liked liim, and had appointed tax gatherer in a small district. Hero Yi was in his clement.  A poor man himself, ho knew all tho  tricks of tlie poor to avoid taxes.  He "was unsparing, and raised more  money out of tho people than anyone  had dono before. He was soon promoted to a higher placo, for he who  can squeeze best_Js a great man in  Corea. Tn his now district he found  some gold.  Accounts differ as to how he found  or acquired it. Possibly he lighted  on a gold mine in the district���������this,  at all events, is what his friends  say, and what many believe. He  took this gold to tlio Emperor, who,  liko all Easter rulers, ever welcomes the man with money. Yi became a court favorite, and a place  was found for him in the. Ministry.  Hc was made Controller of the Emperor's finances," and then Minister of  Finance for the  State. Ho  is     a  strong man, ho has many good business qualities, and extortion is by  no moans the only sido of his character.  His methods can bo illustrated by  one example. There was' a Corean at  Chemulpo who, probably alone  among hi.s fellows, liad succeeded in  business on a largo scale. Yi ordered through him    a hundred thousand  the   army.

Vermiform Appendix  la   Not     tV.9  Only Useless Article  in  Our Body.  Tho doctors for the last few yeara  havo contended that the veriform appendix, so prolific a cause of the disease known as appendicitis, is nn  absolutely useless part of the human  anatomy. There is every reason to  believe that this is not the only use-  loss appendage humanity litis possessed, although nearly all the othci'3  have worn away.  Has anyone ever complimented you  on the beauty of your upper nyc or  inquired after your gills? For,  though you may not know it, you  number thoso among tho disused features of your body.  In the ceutre of your brain, looking  vaguely skyward, lie the atrophied  remains of a, third eye, which, it is  supposed, was; actually one of man's*  useful features at somo provious state  of development, lt is known as tho  pineal gland, though covered by skin  and is found in an almost perfect  condition in certain lizards.  SUPERFLUOUS GILLS AND EARS  You have four gills, or bronchial  clefts, w'hich, however, are now closed up and useless. You originally  had six-, but two of them, by. forming-into your ear and your mouth,  respectively, turned themselves to  somo account. However, before your  lungs developed and became fitted to  carry on your breathing system tho.  work was done by tho four gills  which have since childhood ceased to  develop and  become closed  up.  Your cars���������that is, your outer ones  ���������are quite useless save as an ornament. All tho work of hearing is  done" by the middle oar or tympanum  antl tho internal c'ar. Tho outer feature is purely a pleasant sort of finishing touch to your hearing system. The muscles of tho outer car.  aro powerless and arc not under our  control.  Are you awaro that you have a  ininature grand piano in your auditory nerve, which is tuned up to  every note in music? This is known  as Corti's organ, and consists of a  series of tiny hairs, wliich vibrate on  the drum of your ear and enable you  to distinguish the differences of  sounds.  SOME  ARE  USEFUL.  As sometimes when you striko sx  note on the piano some ornament in  the room will bc found to sing with.  it, so each of theso hairs insido your  ear vibrates in sympathy with somo  musical sound corresponding with it.  An appendix is generally a useful  thing when applied to books, but  man's- appendix is not only useless,  but very troublesome. This is tho  remains of an intestine .supposed to.  have formed part of our ancestors.

In Berlin the waiters, in boor-gardens are very sly in securing tips.  When a guest pays his bill and tho  waiter has to givo change, the latter  returns all the change correctly except ten pfennigs. The waiter,  searches industriously in all his pockets and displays ostentatiously all  his money, but he has no ton-pfennig piece. As a general thing the  departing guest becomes impatient,  and, tired of waiting for the small  amount-tells the. waiter to keep tho  change.  A celebrated  professor who was    a '  frcquent"'visitor ', to-������tlio beer-gardens  had his curiosity excited to .find  out  what the waiters did with the    .ton-,  pfennig  pieces,   go  lie  watdlicd  them.  Ho  soon .discovered  that  the  waiter.;  piit: all  the .ten-pfennig'-.pieces  in  tlio  left-hand- pocket   of  his   vest,-.-whilo  t'hc rctit of the money wont into   his  trousers     pocket.     When   the  professor's turn en me to pay for his boer;  as usual  the waiter could not find a  ten-pfennig  piece     to   complete     tho  change.  "I am afraid," said the waiter, going furiously through his pockets,  "that I haven't got a ten-pfennig  piece."  "Suppose you fool in the left-hnnd  pocket of your vest,*' replied tho professor,  suggestively.  The waiter ditl so, and, as ho  handed out ��������� the requisite coin, hu  whispered in the professor's cur, "I.  guess you were a waiter yourself  once upon a time; but keep the trick  dark." -r-1  W������W-4-M'H*M'^H''f>H-H-14  | The Case of the I  1 Mannings  *. *  kj^*^-*^.*(..{���������j..j-*^j..*(t^���������'^^^^-j-i^������^.|j.{.  i.  I was in my old friend Serjeant  llnllnntino's chambers one day when,  rummaging in a drawer, he suddenly  produced* something whicli he tossed  to me.  "*\Yhat do you think of that?'' he  asked.  It was a woman's ralli'or worn  black silk glove, witli four little  pearl buttons at lhe wrist���������a glove  so slim that 1 could easily pass it  through my signet ring. Tho lingers  of its wearer had been long und tapering.  "It is a relic of one of my early  cases," lie 'observed. "Tho hand  filled that glove had a terrible history connected with it."  It had belonged tb the notorious  Maria Manning.  A lull, dark, fashionably dressed  lndy was .standing one August afternoon at tlio door of a house in Green  ���������wood Street, London. With her delicately gloved hand she knocked and  rang impatiently.  "Is Mr. O'Connor in?" she asked,  as the door was opc-i-.ud.  Mr. O'Connor was out. The lady  turned away as if disappointed; and  Ihen said she would outer aud wait  his return in his sitting-room, to  which she was shown. The. lady's  name was Maria Manning, and she  and her husband were intimate  friends of Mr. O'Connor, a somewhat wealthy oflicer in the Customs,  nnd Mrs. Manning often waited in  tho silting-room when on calling  she found O'Connor out. Sho remained there now for nearly an hour:  but O'Connor did not return, and  sho left., expressing her disappointment.  Seven days passed, and nothing  was seen of the Customs House officer. His landlady, becoming alarmed, sought tlie aid of the police, and  a couple of detectives were despatched from Scotland Yard to search his  rooms to seek a clue to his mysterious  ���������disappearance.  "Jlr. O'Connor wns a most careful  nnd tidy maii���������most tidy!" declared  Ids landlady, in answer lo a question put to lior by one of the detectives.  "Then how. is ir. his papers are like  1his?"  asked  the oflicer,   pointing  to  an open drawer in which lay a. mass  of  documents  scattered  in  confusion.  The landlady shook her head.  "H looks as if some stranger    had  been    rumniHging," went on the    de-  ������. tcctivc.      "Who has been in the room  since Mr. O'Connor left?*'  The landlady could remeber no one  save his visitor, the .Swiss lady���������Mrs.  Manning. In a few minutes tho dc-  lectivcs wore on their waj* to . Mr.  Manning's residence, a littlo house in  Miniver Place, Bermondsey.  The place was empty. Tho most  vigorous knocks at the door failed  to bring any answer. And at la.st  one of the neighbors informed the  detectives that Mr. and Mrs. Manning hnd left tlie house some days pic-  viously, having sold their furniture  "all in a hurry." It' was a strange  coincidence which made the officers  keen to enter and see whether in the  deserted House there lay some clue  to tho reason of Mr. O'Connor's disappearance.  Nothing.      Tliey had searched from  top to bottom.     If those s-ilent walls  those empty, bare rooms, held a secret it was  well concealed.     Tho   detectives  turned thoir attention  to tho  little  bnck   garden,  and   dug  it    foot  by foot.      Nothing!      The house     in  Miniver Placo would apparently   furnish no.   evidence    against its  occupants.     Rather,  it testified.in   tlieir  favor.      It, was  marvellously     clean.

For instance. Professor Bailey,/at  Cornel!''University, aind the authorities of-th'o;West'.Virginian Agricultural Station, have found that cauliflowers will.grow'very tall, but have  smaller heads, and radishes develop  extraordinary' profusion of "top" under the influence of the lamp.

"Of course, you know���������everybody  knows, for that matter���������that a man  or woman never writes his name  twice exactly in the same way. There  is always a slight difference, and  where 'two signatures of the same  namo appear identically alike it is  safe to assume that ono or both is a  forgery. But suppose the signature  has been forged but once, suppose the  handwriting of which it is an exact  copy has been destroyed or is not  obtainable, of what avail is tho  comparative method then? The exact  comparison cannot be employed, but  other almost infallible comparisons  are still available.  "When a, child is taught how to  write at first its penmanship is severely stilT and cramped; then it becomes very much like that in the  copy book,-but after;this is discarded  -Uio child's" chara'cler" begins-Xo creep  into its handwriting.

It is In  the minute details that the forgery is  discovered.  "Then again, a man's mental condition will impress itself upon his  writing. If he is nervous, bubbling,  over with joy or depressed, the fact  will be apparent to the export in  writing. If the alleged handwriting  doesn't show traces of the mental  condition the man was.-roally in ' nt  the time lie was* supposed to have  written or signed a certain,letter, the  signature or the writing is a forgery. These arc some of the ways  by which' an expert delects even the  most successful forgery."  lettuce leaves which' are dressed witli  French dressing, and two largo cherries at ono side.

Perhaps there is nothing that adds  KO much to the appearance of a room  us clean windows and pretty draperies, and cheap curtains that nre well  laundered look far better tlian lino  ones' that havo become flimsy and full  of dust. Tho only way to keep the  curtains from becoming dusty is lo  either cover them woll wlien the room  is swept, or by lifting the brackets'  from the poles and laying tli" curtains iu another room. If your curtains hnvo become dusty, they can be  freshened considerably by taking  them out. doors and shaking thoni  well; and if they liii'vo become flimsy  (hey can bc gone over with a soft  cloth dipped in thin starch water.  Tlie earliest and best, way to clean  (he window glass is to wash with  warm water, to which" a-little kerosene oil has been added, and then,  without rinsing, rub dry with soft  cloths and polish with newspa**cr  softened and crushed in the hands before using. Another method of making tho glass shining clean is to dust  with whiting, then rub it off with  a damp cloth and polish with chamois leather.  Lace or muslin curtains should  never bo put in with the general  wash, nor should ihey be rubbed on  the wash board, but they should be  put to soak over night in a light  suds and then iu tlie morning be  washed through a strong pcarline  suds prepared especially for them.  They will need no boiling unle.s'3 ihey  have been allowed' to become very  mucli soiled.  When long curtains have become  partly worn tliey mny be cut and tlio  best part used for sasli curtains.  Pretty and serviceable curtains can  often lie made from tlie best breadths  of  summer  dresses.  To make the front of the house attractive, the window shade!-; should  all be alike, the windows shining,  and tho curtains clean. No matter  how cheap tlie curtains may bo,  thoy arc always presentable if clean,  and it has been said that one- can almost be sure of lho housekeeping virtues of the woman of the house by  tho condition of her windows and  curtains. Any woman can mend her  shades and launder her curtains  when she once learns how it should  he done.   r   BRITISH SHIPS SUPREME.  Sailing Vessels Being Displaced by  Steamships.  England's remarkable posilion as  the world's carrier has ;:eldojn perhaps boen more conspicuously illus-  traled than-during tho present Russo-Japanese War. Nearly all the  vessels stopped by the Ilussian .privateers have been British.  Those who still love the old sailing ship will regret to learn that lhe  progress of elimination is still being  steadily carried out. In just over  three years t'ho figures of the sailing  ships owned by the United Kingdom  have decreased from 1.804 vessels of  3,727,(537 tons to 1,507 of 1,=392,132  tons.

The report of the British Tnter-De-.  pni-tni'.'iit Committee on Physical  Bc'orioration was issued in London  re-emly.  The committee make no fewer tliart  fifty-three  recommendations of  which  the   following  aiv   a   selection:���������  OVERCROWDING.  The committee believe that tha  time has come for dealing drastically with this problem. Thoy ndvocato  nn experimental ellort by tho local  authority in certain of the worst districts, in tho direction oi fixing a,  standard and notifying that after &  given dato no crowding in excess of  such standard would be permitted.  ALCOHOLISM.  Tho committee believe that moro  may bo done to check the degeneration resulting from "drink" by bringing home to men and women tho  fatal effects of alcohol on physical  efficiency than by expatiating on tho  moral wickedness of drinking. To  this end they advocate the systematic, practical training of teachers to  enable them to give rational instruction in schools on the laws of physical evils caused by drinking. At  tiie same t ime. lho committee can-*  r.ot lose sight of the enormous improvement which has boon effected in  some countries, nnd might be effected  in this country, by wise legislation.  FOOD  AND   COOKERY.  For the purpose of brine,ing homo  to the people the importance of properly selected and carefully prepared  food, there is much room for training of a socially educative character  among girls and young women. Continuation classes for girls bcyonrJ  school age rfiould be organized, attendance at which should be compui-  sory, subject to the exercise of a judicious discretion on the pai t of tho  school  author;tv.  EXERCISES  FOR   CHILDREN*.  It is desirable that moro attention  should bo given with the ar.sistance  whero possible, of voluntary agencies,  to organizing games for school children, and for that purpose much  greater use should be mado both of  school and public playgrounds than  at present. But the committee aro  of opinion that no scheme of games  alone can evor be made general  enough to supply the place of methodical physical  training.  JUVENILE   SMOKING.  The committee recommend thnt a'  bill should be brought before Parliament at an early date, having for  its object: (1) To prohibit the sale  of tobacco and cigantsttcs to children below a certain ago; (2) to prohibit the sale of tobacco and cigarettes in sweet shops and other shops  fro'iurnted by children.  In conclusion, the committee declare that they do not rely "upon any  largo measure oi legislative assistance; thc law, they sny, may with  dvantagc bc altered and elaborated!  in certain respects, but thc pathway  to improvement lies in another direction. Complacent optimism and  administrative indifference must be  attacked and overcome, and a large-  hearted sentiment of public interest  take tlie place of timorous counsels  and sectional  prejudice.   ���������>   RUSSIAN  War  RAILWAY  TRAFFsC.

Some idea of the extent to which  traffic between Russian inland railway centres and Russian ports of  export has decreased in consequence  of tho war may bc gleaned from the  fact, officially- admitted, that nearly  200,000 tons less wero carried over-  Russian railway systems last May  tlian during May of last year. Tho  fall is almost one of 2.'5 per cent.  'From official statistics, again-, it" appears that tho aggregate quantity of  goods carried from various parts "of  t ho,Jempire_ t o _ lhc_ wesn crii_ iajjd_ fron-_  tiers of Russia nlone was less for  tho same month than the cpmnlity  carried during May of last year by  nearly 40 |>er cent. On several of  the main lines In thc empire, military traffic has undoubtedly increased,'though not to an extent sufli-  cieut to make amends for the extras  ordinary decrent-c in private trafllc.  Even where military trallic has increased, particularly en the lines  running into and out from Moscow,  a largo part of thc work is done by  soldiers. The average workman,  therefore, has derived little or no  benefit from it. On tho railway  lines in Eurojiean Russia and in Poland alone it is computed that 00.-  000 railway - liands have been discharged in four months. The number of laborers and artisans throughout the empire thrown inlo idleness  during , the same period owing * to  compression of export and the closing  of works and factorico is estimated  at from 300,000 to-400.000, tho  bulk of whom arc not likdy to find  remunerative employment unlil tho  end of the war.

Association  of Machinists' strike has been declared  olT and the men returned to work at  I2:.".;j o'clock last night.)  The machinists in the C. P. l'i. shops  from Fort William to Vancouver,  went out on strike at 11 o'clock last  Saturday. The strike affects about  fifty men in the C. P. R. shops in this  city. The nrcrt.iT.n has heen requested  to correct a false statement appearing  in the last issue of the Kootenay Mail,  which paper stated that the "local  machinists were called out on an order  from the executive though they are,  not involved in any grievance." The  fact is that the machinists here have  i just, the same grievance as those in  Winnipeg and at all other points from  Fort William west. The particulars  of events leading up to the strike were  told the llj'.HAi.o by a committee of  the union here, and are a.s follows:  "The scale of wages under which the  men are working is such that upon 30  days' notice being given n. change may  be demanded. There lias heen for the  last four months open dissatisfaction  expressed hy tho men .with the existing scale, and tho situation has heen  thoroughly discussed. As a result lhe  regulation notice was given and the  tnaobtnists formulated their demands.  Those were for a. general advance of  one and a half cents per hour in all  shops. When this demand was mado  it was met hy a positive refusal.  After long discussion tho mon reduced  their delnands to an advance of ono  cent per hour. This also was refused,  but, after discussion the C. P. 11. ollicials made an offer to nrhitiato with  the one cent advance as a .maximum.  As the men had already receded half ii  cent from tlieir demands, which they  considered   fair, tho   proposition  was  The rates paid by the C.P.R. are not  the same all over the section now out  on strike, but very considerably. From  Fort William to Pasqiuv the rate is  32J cents per hour. From Pasqua to  Laggan to Kamloops (exclusive . />f  Kamloops, but including the Crow's.  Nost and Kootenny), 30 cents per hour.  From Kamloops to Vancouver the  rate is 31.J. cents.  The rates paid by tho Great Northern from Minot east are 31S cents per  hour. This corresponds in locality  with the region cast of Pasqua on the  C. P. R., showing a, difference <>f 2  cents in favor of the Great Northern  men. ��������� From Minot to thc coast the  rate is 37 cents per hour. This shows  difference of from 1 to 2A cents per  hour. The rates paid by the Northern  Pacific are practically the same us tho  Great Northern.  The officials of the C. P.
