C, -  -  ' ��������� August 8th,'1004.  Editor Revelstoke Herald :' ,'*  Sih,-'���������Would you kindly- allow rae  lo again iise your columns; this time,  to * answer , the letter which-a.ppen.red  in fc-he last issue'of the Kootenay Mail,  written'_by* "A Scotchman." lam  rather "'Wrfy' to again trouble you,  especially as "I know'that very little  good comes of,' this kind of correspondence.    J  ' Now I suppose the best way to deal  with our friend's letter is to take it  piece by piece'and so thoroughly sift  .the whole thing.  Tn the tirst place I may inform our  friend that I am quite satisfied with  -tlie amount of snow here, without  conrfgnmg myself or anyone else to  Siberia,. Then I will show our friend  thut if lie is a Scotchman, he certainly  lacks t>nc of the Scotch attributes  namely" that of' consistency, for his  letter is,thoroughly inconsistent.  - Now, V .never complained of newspaper men criticizing public men at  all, what I complalued of was unfair  criljcisnii Justus "A Scotchman" deals  ���������vs-rth me unfairly when lie says that I  .eannots.ee anything good in the Lib-  eral party or th������"KooFenay~MaiirN5vv  suiely it would indeed be a sorry  thing for C.-muda and Revelstoke if  such were the case. Neither did I  complain exactly of clippings being  published by lhe Kootenay. Mail, only  when it became too evident that its  editor was not giving the case a fair  trial. Now, here iu the poinl; which  our friend failed to uee. Because he  thought that I beltovud that public  men should not hc entjei/.ed, lie kindly  assures me that I do not belong to this  enlightened age, yet lie upholds the  Government which forces a man to  resign his position, simply because he  has used the liberty of which* "A  Scotchman" is so proud, namely, that  of the liberty to criticize public men.  Is this consistent Scotty ? And re-  jjmieruber^ Scotty that Dundonald's  ���������frankness was the only charge the  Government had against him, at  least the only charge with any foundation.  :New another ,one of the Mail's  unfair criticisms is the one in which  he endeavors to spread aboard the  fact that a minister of this town  deliberately lied. When the Herald  kindly referred the Kootenay Mail to  one, of its former publications in  which the Kootenay editor used the  words quoted by the minister, the  editor of the Kootenay Mail kept  silent.  Now 1 think that the least thing an  editor could do when he found ont  that he had made a mistake woujd be  to own up to it in a manly fashion.  Of collide this is the opinion of one  who should have been born years ago,  aud perhaps tbis common courtesy is  not expected of editors in this enlightened age.  That I should be Talbot Liddesdnle,  (the first.) is in my mind rather nice,  it certainly means originality, a thing  which, my friend Scotty does uot give  me credit for. o  That I should bo trying to stampede  the Scotch vote to tlie Tory ranks,  is certainly news to me. I never  mentioned Scotland at rill in iny letter  and was certainly not thinking of  Scotchmen, except, of course of JD1111-  dounld. Neither was I trying to  benefit one party or the other, all 1  wanted was fair criticism.  Now Scotty, most, of the Scotchmen's eyes I have looked into, have  been either blue or gr.ry. 1 don't remember seeing any green. In fact  Scotchmen are usually noted for being  the opposite to green and therefore  could not be stampeded by any letter-  that I could write. And.not only that,  but if I was really trying to bring  Scotchmen under the Tory flag, I  certainly would.leave those with green  in their eyes to the Liberals, for they  Would only spoil the cause.  And as for convincing a Scotchman  who held contrary views to mine in  politics.���������Why Scotty don't you know  yourself that it is very hard to persuade any man to take a different  stand in politics, bat to change"* tlie  politics of a Scotchman..���������Why ask  foolish questions?" And so you .see  friend Scotty, there is no chance at  present of my making an ass of 1113*-  self, so do not be alarmed.- And now  I must say goodnight and goodbye.  Respectfullv yours,  TALBOT- LIDDESDALE.  I  BUSS3AN ARMY  Kuropatkin. Must  Petersburg - has  Fight ��������� St.  Doubts   of  Port Arthur's Ability to Hold  Out Much Longer'. .-   '        ^  _* * ��������� *���������  ,_St. PETEnsnuj������?',-'AMg,?10.���������Nervousness over the situation at tho front  seems to be increasing since the occupation by the Japanese of the AVolf  Hill, before Port Arthur, lt is lealized  that the besiegers have an elevated  positron, whence emplaced guns can  command the fortress, and, while still  professing chiefly that Gen. Stoessel  will be able to hold out with his comparatively small garrison against the  enormous numbers of theattackers and  their disregard of men, indicated by  the -reckless manner in which they  stormed the outer positions, the state  of affairs creates more apprehension  than the war office or admiralty cares  to acknowledge.  With the Japanese cordon tightening south and easl and a column  threatening the Russian line of communications in the rear, toward Mukden, the a'ppearance of the Japanese  on the other sido of Mukden would  almost pocket Gen. Kuropatkin, if, he  has resolved to accept battle with his  whole army at Liaoyang.  Fire at Albion Iron Works.  Fire, whicli originated in the pattern room of tho Albion Iron Works,  Victoria, on Tuesday afternoon,  destroyed the eastern section of the  building and about thirty-five, houses  situated ea.st of Douglas street, from  Pembroke street to Queen's avenue.  Tho fire in the residential quarter  rendered homeless a nimi her of families  and in addition to the loss of the  houses a considerable amount of furniture and personal effects was destroyed.  The total loss is estimated at about  $100,000.  The efforts of tlie fire department  prevented the flames from spreading  to the lurnbor yards of the Shawnigan  Luke Company, adjoining tho Albion  Iron Woiks, but little could bo done  to save tlie houses above Douglas  street.  Card of Thanks.  Mr. and Mrs. Robert Laugh ton de"  sire, through the columns of the  Herald, to - express their heartfelt  thanks for the sympathy extended to  them by the many friends in the community in their and bereavement  through tire death of their infant son.  Holidays Extended,  School holidays have been extended  one week and schools throughout the  province will re-open on August 22nd,  instead of August l.'rth, The hot  weather in thc interior led to this  step being taken.  His   Worship     Mayor   Brown  States there is Sufficient water  in Bridge Creek   to Warrant  the Work.  A report was currenti in the city  this week that the water in Bridge  Creek had practically disappeared and  that the work now being done by the  city to givo an adequate water supply  was practically lost. In thi.s connection a Herald representative called  upon Mayor Brown who stated that  there was plenty of water in the  creek at the present time, notwithstanding any reports to the contrary.  Tho dry weather of the past .month  has boen a good test of the supply  obtainable from the dilferent streams  and that Bridge creek would, in his  opinion, furnish all thc water the  city would require for some time to  come. In addition to Bridge creek  there is another stream, just above  tho residence of Mr. Watson, that  could bc taken in.  The pipes are now being laid and  Contractor J: Kernaghan has the  work of constructing the 80,000 gallon  reservoir ahove McKenzie avenue.  His Worship further stated that the  new water supply would be turned  into the mains within 10 days or two  weeks at the latest.  *l*i '-fr* fti fti fti ft- fti fti fti fti fti ft' ************************************************************ ������*fr������ j  *Er1'J"$r Vfj^ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty ty tyty *  ty Hay,.Oats, Bran, Shorts, Feed Wheat,  ff Flour, Rolled Oats, Etc.  *g Bacon, Hams,   Eggs*   Groceries  and  ty Panned Goods, Etc., Etc.

C. Arrangements have  been made for a location survey party  to follow immediately on the preliminary survey party, thus vitually  completing the entire survey work at  the sanre time. Chief Engineer Warrington says that no engineering  difficulties are lDeing* encountered and  he believes that a grade of less than  one per cent can he maintained all the  way."

The- annual   Golden    sports  take  place on Monday and Tuesday of next  wcelc. The principal features of thc  celebration will be, horse racing, a  baseball tournament and a lacrosse  match, with a moonlight excursion  and fireworks display, on Monday  evening and a Grand Ball Tuesday  evening' Hovelstoke will send a la-  'crosse team,- and in view of the fact  that the citizens of Golden* have patronized Revelstoke so well of late,  those who can possibly do so should  return tho compliment Iiy attending  the celebration at Golden next week.

But Enderby Liberals aie not so  gullible as they are patriotic. They  subscribed for stock in the venture to  get a Libera] paper in the Valley that  they could depend upon. On the face  of it the game looked easy. But they  see now that it is a political shell  game.

Last Sunday Constable Aston made  a trip to Beaver with the photograph  of a man named Bakker, who liad absconded with the funds of the Miners'  union at Red Lodge, Montana, in Iris  pocket.

He was brought lo Golden and  lodged in jail here until the arrival erf  the hhe.rilt' of Red Lodge, who i.s expected to arrivo tomorrow to tnke  charge of Bakker, who bus decided to  waive all extradition proceedings and  return peaceably with the sheiilT.

Pueblo, Cplo., Aug. 0���������-Late tonight  the total number of identified bodies  recovered from the Eden railway  wreck was 73; unidentified, 43. The  list of those reported missing has been  gi'owing all day and now nearly  reaches 40.  Seven more bodies wero recovered  and a number identified.  A coroner's jury today viewed the  scene of the wreck and examined some  witnesses. District Attorney Low  slates that the matter will be gone  into thoroughly.  p,i[*cr that would lay bare thc back of  the McBride Clan and polish tbe nose  of the , other-fellow.

That was six months ago. The  paper w.ts to appear some time in  April. It didn't. It has not appeared  yet. For a month or two the plant  that is to pi hit the paper has been  lying in tho freight shed at Vernon.  Nobnby seems to know anything about  it, and everybody wants to know  everything about it.  After making numerous inquiries,  some of the Enderby Libeials who  subscribed to the stock but did not put  up the monoy have learned a great  deal about it. A few days ago they  weie shocked from caudal to cranium  by receiving through His Majesty's  mailji check for one dollar and somo  cents as the first dividend declared by  tho company.   x  A dividend before tho plant is out of  hock !

C, Aug. 8���������A  particularly sad drowning" accident  occurred here to-day, almost--in the  "presence of a large number of people.  As is the daily habit of the children,  quite a number indulged in "bathing  on the sandy tbeach in.front of the  station and close ^ to the passenger  wharf, among them the family of. Mr.  John Bull, who until last year- kept "a  clothing store here. It appears that  a smaller child, May. had gone out of  her deptii, alongside tbe barge, when  her sister Nettie, 14 years old", went to  her aid. .May reached the shore, but  Nettie vanished from sight. The cry  of the children quickly attracted the  attention of passengers and workmen-  on the wharves and though expert  divers and swimmers jumped into the  lake in all directions they failed to  locate her, and the crowd of people  who had gathered along the shore  were compelled to give up hope of  recovering the girl alive.  Men and  boys worked   with   grappling hooks, and after lying in  water  one    hour*   the     body    was   finally -  recovered.  Efforts to restore life proved of no  avail, and with sadness in every heart  the body was borne home.  The deepest sympathy is felt towards the parents iu their bereavement, particularly as the father is  away from home. He has opened a  store at Arrowhead. Two brothers  arc in business at Vancouver.    -  THE LEADING STORE  HEADQUARTERS   FOR  FASHIONABLE  MERCHANDISE  LOVELY   SUMMER   DRESS   GOODS  AT~BARGAIN PRICES  The most attractive di-.pl.iy of Ladies' Dress Goods,  Wash Muslins, Blouses, Skirls, Tailor-Made Costumes,  Ktc, all New Designs and pretty patterns.

Hut tliere was a  drawing down fast.  Yes. you Have guessed  "Lola had,, flashed from a slip of a  girl into a thoughtful, beautiful woman, and it seemed as if Clifford and  I made the discovery at the same  fateful moment. No word of it had  boen breathed, but words were not  wanted. It wa.s conscious silence  that made the struggle the more  deadly. ��������� Clifford meant to win her  definite promise if it lay in man's  power, and I had sworn to myself  that if slie would not tako my name  for- life she should never take liis.  Bid she know? Closely, jealously  as I. had watched, the utmost I  could believe was that, caring sec-  reily for Clifford, she would die sooner than say the word that might  drive myself to desperation.  One evening, after'the performance,  1 stood listening beyond the door  of the manager's loom. I could just  sec Lola, standing very still there,  lier face gone like marble, tuul Old  Sam wiping his forehead as he stared  past her. The manager's voice had  cut the silence with chilling irony,  "Either it ends ioriiigl.it...or." our  contract snaps; and you don't look  like signing.another. The 'turn' has  lost all life and is going to pieces.  Why?" The two men arc palpably at  variance., and the girl i.s in Tear. You  can't deny it."  "I don't!"

Her lips quivered, ber fingers clasped and unclasped;'.but,that was nil. Clifford! She  wanted to say it, but could not. Some  deep woman's instinct warned her to  keep silence sooner than make us lifelong enemies.  His arms dropped. The manager-  had laughed. "Dramatic! Some mystery I don't understand. Settle this  between yourselves; nry show mustn't  puffer over an everyday trifle."  A     irifie!

If anything happened to him before dawn, Clifford  llano could not dance for thc cup.  Then, as. I stood fighting .against myself, that small point of gas-flame  haprloncd to flicker-. Like a streak of  lightning the inspiration darted  through my brain. The gas! . . . . ;.'.  I was mad; I live only to believe  that. I closed my oyes, reached up,  and paused for one chaotic second.  "Lola!       Lola!"   came     his     slow  whisper.  There were two gas-jets.    The flnrhe  Th'erc���������thero at tho wings, watching  me, pale, calm, accusing.

I wns shoking, fainting, but  if it cost mo my sanity I must stand  and  watch.  Through a red mist I saw Clifford  step forward, very palo, vaguely unfamiliar, but with a quiet detormirrar  tion to outdo all who had gone before. Clifford! Was conscience playing me tho Inst, most ghastly trick  of nil? ITo had given the littlo scries of gestures thnt his public recognized; ho hnd arched his folded.arms,  the band bad struck into the step,  nnd the patter of his clogs rang out.  It Was in his look, in his whole bearing, and tho audience seemed to realize it���������ho had como at thc last moment to win!  All a dream! The minutes Went  by; tho silence held, punctuated by  dull bursts of applause. Faster and  faster his feet seemed to flash, gliding from step to step, from stylo to  style, ��������� .with a flawless, fascinating  rhythm, and all with a grace and  ease that told He was crowning tho  greatest moment of hi.s career. Hiv-  cted there. I watched. Ah! there was  tlie new stop that he had been practising and teaching my Lola in secret.  It wont with an irresistible swing.  His sot face liad not see.ir.cd to move  a muscle, but he was winning���������winning; a hundred foot woro involuntarily keeping time in a sound tliat came  up liko low thunder. Tho flutter of  a. paper and flash of a diamond breast  stud wero quite still in that box now.  And still he. went on, till every  known step-figure, seemed exhausted,  and tho great house was filled with  a continuous whistling and roar of I  voices. Not tho dancing alone, but  his personality! Ancl then the sudden lui.'li. Tho judge's figure was  loaning from that box. Clillord had  won tho cup.  And rrow���������rrow I was in the cool  street. I stood, my breath suspended, in e natch of shadow by the stage  door. Yes, there he canrc, muffled in  a groat-coat, struggling through a  dense crowd. Tlo had hurried away.  Did ho guess nt tho figure following  close? It was in a quiet by-street  near the station; ho suddenly turned  and stood quite still, ns if waiting  to say sonic last word in life.

Then something liad made  my shaking fingers pluck' at tho mass  of dark, close little curls. There was  a little cry, almost a moan���������and thon  I realized. 1 was staring down at  the woman I Hart lost. Lola! SHo  had acted a part that night as she  would never net again. It was Lola who had dared so much and danced that night for the cup.  "Hush!    To  save you!"  camo     her  quiet,     far-away    voice.       Sho     had  drawn  hack,  her hand trembling out  to -keep  tire  distance.     "Don't speak;  don't ask more.    Let mo go���������let mo  forget  it;     To  save you!

LUCMOW AND OAWSPORE  VISIT TO THE SCENES OF THE  GREAT TRAGEDIES.  Eeminiscences    of the Indian   Mutiny���������Brave Deeds of British  Soldiers.  Lucknow and Cawnporc aro ob'  jects'or pilgrimage to nil Englishmen  because of their terrible memories of  the awful struggles of tho mutiny of  tho Sepoys or native soldiers in  1857, and thoir heroic defence and  heroic relief by a handful of British  troops under Sir Henry Havelock,  Gen. James Outram, and Sir Colin  Campbell. Although* more has been  wriltei- nbout Lucknow, yet the tragedy of Cawnporc is to me tho moro  thrilling in several particulars, and  that city was the scene of the groat-  er agony, writes n correspondent of  thu Chicago Record-Herald.  Upon the* shores of tho Ganges river in a pretty park of sixty acres, in  the centro of which rises a mound.  That mound covers tlie site of a woll  in which the bodies or 250 of tho  victims of the massacres wore cast.  It is inclosed by a Gothic wall, and  in the centro stands a beautiful figure  of an angol in white marblo by an  Italian artist. Her arms nro crossed  upon Her breast and in each hand  she holds a palm branch. The archway is inscribed:  "Theso Aro They Which Came Out  of Great Tribulation."  Chiselled in the wall that marks  the circle of tho well aro theso  words:  "Sacred to the Perpetual Memory  of a great Company of Christian people, chiefly Women and Children, who  near tliis Spot were cruelly Murdered  by the Followers or the ilobol Nana  Dhundu Panth of Dithur, and cast.  Hying with the Dead', into the Well  below on tho XVth day of July,  MDCCCLVII."  TIIE STORY OF  CAWNPOR.E  lins no parallel in history. It might  have been repented at Pekin two or  three years ago, for tho conditions  existed there. In the summer of  1857 sixty-one English artillerymen  nnd about 3,000 Sepoys woro attached to tlio garrison at that place,  whore about 800 foreigners resided.  Upon June G tho native troops rose  in mutiny, sacked the .Jaymastcr's office, and burned several of thn buildings. The frightened foreigners fled into one of tlio larger buildings of tho  government, whero they hastily th'rew  up fortifications, and resisted a siege  of three weeks. Their position having become untenable, they arranged  terms of capitulation with Nana Sahib, tho leader of the mutiny, -who  had been refrrsed tho throne and tho  allowance paid by the British government to the Into mnharajah, although thc latter had adopted him  in legal form, and had proclaimed him  his heir. This was one of thc principal reasons for the mutiny, arid,  without considering the' question of  justice or inuustice, Nan,u Sahib sat-,  isfied his desire for venegeanco under  tho most  atrocious  circumstances.  Having accepted - tho surrender of  thc little garrison upon his personal  assurances of tlieir security and safe  conduct to Allahabad, ho placed tlio  survivors, ahout 700 in number, in  boats upon the Ganges river and bade  them good-bye. As soon as the last  child was on board and the word  was given to start down thc stream  tbe blast of a bugle was heard. At  that signal the crews of the .boats  leaped into the water, leaving tho  passengers without oars, and immediately thc straw roofs of tlio boats  burst into flames, nnd showers of  bullets woro fired from linos of infantry drawn up on thc banks. Most  of thosa who jumped  into tho water  life-   to escape the flamea were shot down  have  should bo burled "without any fuss,  liko a British soldier," and that tho  only epitaph upon Kis tombstone  should bo:  "Hero lies Henry Lawrence, Who  Tried to do his Duty; May God have  Mercy upon his soul."  Ho died upon the Fourth of July.  Upon tho sixteenth Major Banks, his  successor in command, was killed and  the authority devolved upon Captain Inglis, whose widow, tho last  survivor of the siege, died in London  on Feb. 4, 1904. The deaths averaged from fifteen to twenty daily,  and most of tho poop'lo woro Wiled by  an African sharpshooter who occupied  n. commanding post upon tho roof of  a neighboring houso and fired through  tho windows of tho residency without over missing his victim. The  soldiers called him "Bob tho Nailer."  Tho latter part of August ho Was finally killed, but not until he liad shot  dozens of men, women . und children  among tho besieged. In order to  protect themselves from his shots and  thoso from other directions the windows of tho residency wero barricaded, which shut out all tho air and  ventilation, and tho heat became almost intolerable. A plague of flies  set. in which' was so terrible that tho  nervous women and children frequently became  FRANTIC AND HYSTERICAL.  On Sept. S a faithful native  brought tho first news that a relieving force under Sir Henry Havelock  and General James Outram was ncai*-  Ing Lucknow. On tho 25th Havelock  fought his way through the streets of  tho city, which wero packed with  armed rebels, and on the 26th succeeded in. reaching th'o residency. But  although the relief was welcome, and  tho sufferings of tho besieged Wero for  tho moment forgotten, it was considered impracticable to attempt nn  evacuation, because the wholo party  would have boon massacred if thoy  had left the walls. A young Irish  clerk in tho civil service, named  James Kavanagh, undertook to carry  a message to Sir Colin Campbell,  nnd succeeded in passing through' the  linos of tho enemy. On Nov. 10  Campbell fought his way through tho  streets with" 3,500 men, and the relief of Lucknow was ilnally effected.  A few days later Sir Henry Havelock, tHo hero of the first relief died  from nn attack of dysentery from  which he had long been suffering, and  his body was buried under a wide-^  spreading tree in the park. Tho tomb  of Havelock is a sacred spot to nll-  soldlcrs. A lofty obelisk marks the  resting place of one of tho noblest of  men and ono of the bravest' and ablest soldiers.  Tho residency is naturally a great  object of interest, but tho cemetery,  gay with flowers and feathery bamboos, is equally so, because there lie  the dust of 2,000 men and women  who perished within tho residency, in  the attempts at relief, and in other  battles and massacres in this neighborhood during the mutiny.   *���������r-   t  4-  *  -t*  t  ���������r  YOUNG  FOLKS  T  I  1  ���������*  ���������J  !*H^++++++++-M-^++*f+-H--*'  HOW THEY ACTED.

Tlie following anecdote is said to  be ono of thc traditions of a manufacturing lirm iii Glasgow, Whether  it bo anything more than n tradition  or not, it is a characteristic story of  Scotch  pluck, and persistency :  A barefooted, ragged urchin presented himseli before the desk of the  bend of an importnnt firm, and asked for work as an errand boy.    .  "There's a deal o' running to bo  done," said Mr. Blank, jestingly, affecting a broad Scotch accent. "Your  qualification wud be a pair o'  shoon."  Tho boy, witli a grave nod, disappeared. He lived by doing odd jobs  in tho market, and slept under one  of the stalls.^ Two months passed  beforo ho had saved enough money to  buy the shoes. Then ho presented  himself beforo Mr. Blank one morning nnd held out a package.  "I liavo tho shoon, sir," ho said.  Mr. Blank with difficulty recalled  tlio circumstances. "Oh, you want  a place? Not in those rags, my lad!  You would disgrace tho house."  Tho boy hesitated a moment, and  then went out without a word. Six  months passed beforo ho returned,  decently clothed in coarso but now  garinonis. Mr. Blank's interest was  aroused. For the first time ho looked at tlio boy attentively. His thin,  bloodless faco showed that he had  stinted himself of food in order to  buy tho clothes. T'hc manufacturer  questioned him, and found, to his  regret, that he could neither read  nor  write.  "It is. necessary tliat you should  do both befoi'o wc can employ you in  carrying home packages," ho said.  "We havo no place for you."  The lad's faco grew paler, but without a word of complaint ho disappeared. Ho now went fifteen miles  into' tlio country and found work in  stables near a night school, where  during yet another six months' waiting he learned how to rend and  write, in addition to acquiring an elementary knowledge of arithmetic.  During this time he had carefully  saved back his better clothing, and  now at last onco more presented  himself to Mr. Blank.  "I can read und writo now, sir,"  ho said.  'Again recalling the circumstances,  Mr. Blank was so impressed with the  pluck and persistency of the lad that  he gave hiin the place for which he  had so nobly striven.  ���������������:������������������<������������������������������������:������������������<������>���������������������������:���������������������������:���������������>*������<������������������:������������������:*���������*  I.

Tho Eskimo's  diet, consists of two kinds of meat  or flsh nnd a littlo fat, whilo tho  Congo native cats littlo else than  plantain. Tho North American . Indian used to live all winter upon a  diet of snlt moat, and tho Scotch  peasants formerly for six dnys in tho  week tasted nothing but oatmeal  porridge.  Such a restricted diet, howevor, is ',  usually not a matter of choice but'  of necessity. Tho environment provides nothing else. The Eskimo  meat-eater consumes with groat relish' canned vegetables when ho can  get them, and the vegetarian .African  simply gorges himself with meat  when  He. enn  obtain it.  As a rule, tho more civilized 'a <  man becomes tho greater becomes his  variety in diet. The French' nation,  which-for centuries bus led thc world  in thought, is the grent cooking nation. Fino cooks and grent variety  in diet.  Variety in food! docs not necessarily mean a great variety ut arry ono  meal, ilor docs it mean rich pastries  and indigestible stuffs. We think  that a meal of two or three articles '  is really better than a greater number, but cacli meal should  bo different from tho other. Breakfast, dinner, and supper should consist of different articles of food, and  thoso be varied from day to day. A  variety pf wholesome foods .well  cookeh.  'I'he sensible housewife is the ono  who does not servo to husband and  children tho samo things day after  day until their appetites aro cloyed  and their stomachs go on a strike.  Tho food should vary from season  to season, from day to dny, from  meal to meal.  Eat moat, eat fish, eat vegetables,  oat fruits, cat cereals, but do not  try to eat thcm' nil ih ono day. Remember your body is mnde'up of  many different elements and it is  best nourished by many different  kinds of. food. There is no single  food, not oven milk, that will keep  a man' in health and vigor for any  groat length of time.- Even tlift domestic animals are kept in better  condition by slight changes in diet,  or changing from one pasture lo-another. Nature hns nrovided such a  variety of products for food that it '  seems only reasonable lo .conchido  that they are of use -in tho nourishment of tbo body.  LITTLE THOUGHTS.  Frist living is but faster dying.  Character is crystallised conduct.  Orrly ti fool's to-morrow ruins    today.

INFANTILE  PARALYSIS.  ��������� Tn its eni-ly stages this is an aculo .1  febrile disc'aso of childhood, 'and "  seems not a serious ailment; hut'the  paralysis may bo lifelong and shockingly crippling. For this reason it  is, to tho physician who rccouizes it ���������  in its early stages, one of tho most  dreaded of all tho ills of childhood  except those which directly threaten  life. The discaso begins, liko most  of the iicuto fevers of chilhood, with  an indisposition to play,. loss of appetite, sometimes nausea aod vomiting, headache, restlessness, muscular  twitchings, or. sometimes actual convulsions, and fever. Tho fever is ���������  seldom high, nnd nt first thc child  docs not seem to be very ill. The  symptoms suggest rather ������ - little  digestive upset than a serious disease.  After a few dnys, sometimes earlier  the child' is scon to bc paralyzed,'  and tho paralysis . increases rapidly-  in extent, until sometimes the-power  of motion is abolished in both arms  and both legs. But usually tho  muscles aro not so widely'implicated  and only one or two limbs, perhaps  tho-leg-on-ono-side-nnd-the-avni���������on-  ihe other, or maybe only jrarts of  theso limbs,  nro affected.   ; '  By this time the acute, symptoms  h'avo generally subsided,, nnd if ���������it  were not for the paralysis the .ehild  would bo up arid about again asus-  unl. But the paralysis persists for  a fow 'days or weeks, and then grad-.  ually recedes, until" only a comparatively small part of the original urea  involved- remains permanently affected.  Tho   disease    is essentially    one of  children,   and     more    commonly    of  boys, although* young ndults aro oe-  casionnlly  attacked.      It  is  boliovcd  to bo an infectious disense, although!  probably    not contagious or  "catching," nnd it hns been known to occur  in quite    extensive    epidemics.     Tho  paralysis  tliat remnins  is ncc.ompan-\J  ied by atrophy  of the muscles    and  retarded growth of tho affected limb.  When it. affects the leg it.is tho most  common cause "of'acquired.'clubfoot.  ..Although'- a    complete euro is    seldom .'or never obtnincd,     there     are?,  few  diseases    which  offer a.    greater  reward for persistent treatment.     At  tho beginning massage and electricity ,1  nro    of   the greatest use,  and some- '  times   llio.   persistent    and  scientific  application  of electricity  will     bring  abo'ut  a notable improvement,    even  after-'years    of paralysis,  whon    the  muscles  seem  wasted  awny  to nothing.  ���������   :-.' .���������"���������..-.��������� ���������  REMEDY FOR NOSE BLEED.  For nose bleed there is nn old- j  fashioned remedy which -we can thor-*  oughly- recommend. Tho juice of  ono or two lemons is to be squirted  rrp into tho nose; with a good rubber-syringe. It should be applied to  the side of the nose from which the  blood appears. This is almost certain to stop nose bleed. If it. does  not do so, packing the nose with cotton soaked in lemon juice, is to Jm3  .-thought of. ": ' xjsss&mi  Mill  CVISJ  Divided '*  The  House...  39������a3)���������48^0est���������-ee^  The way that tho light went in tho  littlo room, half McAlphino's faco  was in shadow; tho other half was  clear arid strong. Presently ho  jnovo'd round towards his secretary,  and tlio Hard mouth s'Aowed in full.  It was late, and in the heavy silence  tlie remorseless ticking of thc clock  sounded slow and very loud to the  tired secretary, like blows on a tiny  anvil.  "So that's the letter," said Mc-  Alphine the Scotsman. "A pretty  letter.    What woro tho threo names?"  Onco more the secretary's hand felt  for tho typed letter on the table. Before ha had picked it up, McAlphino's  memory crunc.  "All right,'-' said he. "It doesn't  matter; I remember thcm���������l-earce  and Thomas and Bcrnardson. If T  employ those three any longer, the  othess nil go out. An ultimatum  to mc."  "Yes," said the secretary. "Tliey  go out at tho end of the week."  '"They don't," said McAlphinc. lie  pushed His chair back and ��������� stood upright. A day and half a night of  galloping work were behind liim,  but ho shook tho creeping tiredness  from hiin like n'i old coat.  "Thoy don't," He cried again, and  his voice leapt. "They go out tomorrow, ns early as you can wire  down. If I wero worth only a tenth  of wl.at I am now, I'd pay tliem  their week's w,ages atter that letter.  and see their backs, if it broke me."  The mind of the secretary was at  once invaded by tlie black panorama  tliat this would mean. He saw the  palo women and the Querulous children, the burly, idle men. He saw  each slow-moving week a further  milestone of-degradation.  "Thoy have been led astiay," said  he.  "Yes," said McAlphinc sliarply.  "Whose fault is that���������they choose  their *own leaders. I know what a  lock-out means as well as you, but  I'vo lost patience. I'm ns competent  to be a leader as nny three of their  wretched agitators. Man, I tell you  I had it in my mind.  "I would have made Castletown a,  place for the world to look at���������a  fair. Eden for decent working men.  But I've conic up by myself���������it's a  fact tliat I started with a borrowed  . 'sovereign���������I'vo sweated, and strained,  and! worked; and I'll have nobody to  dicta.te to me how I'm to run niy  bus.5\ess, and what men I must employ.  "Tliey had it in their liands, for  you know wlion there was that trouble a-wec_f ago,' I went down and  told tliem to their faces. "All this  week, I suppose, little mon in whito  collars have boon holding meetings,  and going from house to house, telling them to strike. . 'You're bound  to win. He can't aiTord to have his  worts shut.'  "They've chosen their road. and  they think it's a short one. But I'll  light. I was three years in tho ;'oor-  house when I was a boy, and I'd  sooner bo there again than not have  my own way now. Perhaps you  can't understand that?"  "Quilo well,"  said  the  secretory.  "Graham, my boy, it's the longest  speech I ever made to you.     I want  some sleep.     Good-night."  "Good-night," said Graham. "I'll  wire "down first thing." Ho rose and  stood by tlie window. ��������� "I might as  well go out now," he added with a  laugh. For as he .pulled aside tlie  curtains the day came strange arid  awkward into the lighted room.  Wlien the strike liad lasted a month  nnd   McAlphino's   men  at   Castletown  got- timid,  nnd talked of cavarlymen  nnd thc nearest barracks, McAlphinc  said:  "I must go    'down to  Castletown.  They won't frighten me."  But when ho told his wife tliat ho  ___woul_d__not_3_L1������-1_^_______Z*tV. _ and    rilie  must not be afraid for him", f.ho said:  "Lot mc go, too."  McAlphine   looked   at  hcr   in     surprise.       "Take you    down,     Grace!  Why?"  "I don't know," .sh'c answered evasively. And then added for her reason,  "I want to go."  "It's not safo for you. You  wouldn't dare to go out in the  streets for a walk, from what Mcrri-  man tells me."  "It can't bo so bad as that. Th'o  worst of tho men would not. hurt a  woman."  "I imagine," said McAlphinc grimly, "tl>at you wouldn't be nn ordinary woman to them aa tliey are  now. You'd be just McAlphine's  wifo."  But sh'e had her way.  "Life's too crowded to waste time  in trying to dissuade a woman," he  said* to Graliam afterwards.  By tho time McAljHiine liad reached Castletown, the strike had bored  the placo to a collection of- dreary,  idle streets. His coming irritated  tho men to furious speech. They  talked openly ot meetings of attacking hiin, -which" was bad, and got  tKcir words printed in a local peper,  which was' worse.  McAlphine took a thick stick, and  walked about tho streets ,os ho liked.  The apparent indifference had its effect irr  less  than a fortnight.  One morning a man began Hesitatingly to follow him. Wlion McAl-  phino slackened, the man stopped.  "(Iood niorning, Peters," fwid Mc-  Ali'hln.* over his shoulder. The man  was en nssistnnt engineer. "To  think of your poor engines spoiling  thorn for n wipe of grease!" said McAlphinc, nnd stopped In his turn.  I'olers cnine nearer.  ' "Hnndii off!" cried McAlphine, mistaking  i.'no   movement.  "No., it's not Hint." snid Peters.  McAlphine lowered tho lifted stick.  ''I'vo'Eoir.o news."  "Well, lot's h'avo it," aaid McAlphine,   "if you please."  "They had a meeting yesterday,"  said Peters. "They're tired, or, rather, their Women are, and it'B the  samo thing. They're coining to you  to-day to toll you. They'll have tho  threo men back, and start next  wceK."  "Will th'oy?" said McAIphino in  quick, sudden rago. "I'm much  obliged. I'm glad you told mo. You  can go bnck and tell thcm quietly.'  It'll save thorn having thoir licking  advertised in tho papers, at any rate.  They'll como back, will they���������the  good men. Toll 'em from mo that  they'll do nothing of tho sort. They'll  como back when I want theni, and  not before. I'm sorry yoit went in  with the crowd, Peter's. You wero a  decent worker for me onco. And I  stood by you���������if you were ill nt  home, ar anything of that sort,  didn't I?"  "Yes," said Peters. "You're rjuite  right. But I practically had to go  with the others, and that's a tact."  "I'm sorry. But no man has to  do anything Ite doesn't want to, if  he's strong enough," ".-xiid McAlphinc.  "Cood morning, rotors."  So things were worse.. It was a  part of McAlphinc now to know tliat  ho was master, to see those who had  revolted go down and down. It was  really against his nature. But he  would  not  move.  Wlien the big London papers took  tho part of the men, and wrote  against McAlphinc and his tyranny,  it made him harder still. Thero wero  special correspondents now, who filled columns about the ^pitiful state  of thc people.  McAlphinc laughed at reading  thorn. His wife looked at Him across  tho table with sorrowful oyes, trying-  to get to tho depths of the man's  hardness.  lire hardness of the man she loved.  This masterful man. Surely he  would soon relent.  And already tho gloom of_thc late  months was coming ovor Castletown. Grey, clammv fogs tliat heralded tbe winter. Ihe winter was a  bittor tKing for thcm without money.  "Finish it now, Jack," said his  wife. "You have proved h'ow strong  you are. Finish it, and lot the men  in." "     -  "Sot , I," saidi McAlphine. "The  men liave paid for their lesson with  their speeches of two months ago. I  was a tyrant and a slave-driver. The  first I will be now���������.thoy shall have  their lesson to tlio full."  "Did the women anrj the children  pay?"  said  she.  "I can't help, tliat. Evon a man  at a pound a week should think before ho jumps. My mind's made up.  You enn't change- it. . Let 'em go  tlirough tho winter for a bit, and  como to mo again." His hand came  down upon the tiapors ha had been  reading. "And I'll .walk their  streots alone," Ho sKouted. - "I'm  not old.-- I'm fit and strong. Not  ono of .them "dares to say I am  afraid."  But in faco of this cruel arrogance  his w;ii"_s's oyes had changed.' And  tliat night a woman, veiled and in  black, knocked at the door of Peter's  cottage/ The woman in th'o print  dress w'rro faced her stood silent in  surprise and curiosity.  "Js vour husband in?"  "No.'*'  "Then may 1 como in?" asked the  visitor in a soft voico.  Tlio parlor was now baro an'd  dreary, and she wont irr, listening to  a confused murmur of apology. Tlio  wax ornaments in tho glass cases  woro gone. Thoro wero two chairs  w_iere there had been five. Tlie gilt-  framed cKromograph' of a scene in  Venice was missing from the walls.  Tlio visitor put down a bulging  parcel on tho tablo,  and said:  "May I look at your children?  They're asleep,  aren't they?" -  Wondering,- yet with no thought of  refusing, the woman of the houso  led hor up a narrow stairs. Together  they looked down upon the sleeping  children. And the mother said, almost humbly:  "It's a hard time."  "There's food downstairs," said the  stranger. "Tea, and things "that I  know you want. I'll como again.  "Ohly_tell~ribb"ody. I~will~send-other  tbing-s to you. You can help mo by-  taking them to other houses. You  don't know nie, 'do you? It doesn't  matter. Good-bye." she held out  lier hand.  But tho mother or the children  could not speak.  Only when tlio stranger had gone,  she snt in th'o parlor instead of tho  kitchen. Because she could imagine  tho lady fn black still standing there.  Sho was thinking. Trying to reconstruct a memory from the soft voice  and the dimly-seen face. "Tlie governor's wife," sho cried at last. And  she knelt down at a chair and prayed.  On another night, at a lnte hour,  McAlphine met his . wife on thc  stairs.  "You're very late, Grace," said  he.     "Where liave you been?"  "I  couldn't  sleep,"   she  said.      "I  went ont."  "By yourself���������at this time?"  "Yes."  "I don't understand."  "Have     you     ever   thought,"   said  ahe, . "that .  there     are   some   things  which you will never  understand?"  Slio flung the words at him in a  sort of calm temper, and rnssed by  him.  "Now, when shall one kr.ow a woman?" said McAlphine speaking to  the  stairs.  But meanwhile tho locked-oirt men  talked in groups and planned in bar  rooms. Tliey were rejected, useless.  McAlphine passed theni 'daily, with  his shut lips and his stern fnco. Silent scorn���������rubbing  in  llieir wounds.  Nothing hurts a man so mucli as  lo know Iro can bo dono wil'hout. To  know that whether he works or is  idle, it is iniuuUoriul to some other  mnn. Nothing is so bitter. And  thoso nun could be done witihout.  BocaiiKO of tho, strength and tho force  of tbis cold, silent man.  Desperate,   thoy    worked   to a cli  max. They would show _ that tliey,  too, had power. That they could  hit back. Should thoy starve and  bo cold for over? And with.? a little  drink, which they managed to gert  sometimes, they were new men. They  swaggered and" tliey talked. Th'oy did  not starve. Thoy wero kept by tho  food that camo to thorn, and thoy  did not question. And their children wero bright-faced arid healthy.  On th'o night whicli was to soo  tho climax Peters came liomo. Ho  had taken a little intoxicant to givo  him courage but exciteniont p'ossoss-  ed him more than the drink.  Ho was disagreeable arid suspicious,  and Iio wanted to quarrel. Hc began  at onco to wrangle, witli his wifo  about tliu parcels that liad come. In  his queer mood he resented them as  an insult.  "Where do they come from?" he  asked.  "I sha'n't tell you," replied his  wife.  Peters was swept with the desiro  to bo masterful, which he could indulge ��������� Here���������the only place where he  could be free from tliat feeling of  humiliation.  "Then    they're  not  to  come    any  more.     Eat humble pic  to  anybody?  I don't want anybody's charity."  "What about tho children?"  "Lot them bo the samo as us. Mind  what  I  tell you.     I'll  bo  master  in  iny own house.     I'll "  Ho was stopped short by the fooling that another person was in the  room. He looked up to seo tbe lady  in black, who was free of ths house,  and who had como silently from tho  passage. He recognized her at onco,  and all tha sullen passion of thc  dreary days, long kept under control, leapt up and overcame the  man.  "It's you, is it?*' he cried. "Then  it's you who sends the food. I'm  to go in thc dust to liim, and to  you as well, am I?" he snarled, and  struck her across the face.  Sho shrank back and went blindly  through tho door. Then his wifo  had held cf his wrists, and was  forcing him backwards against the  wall.  "You coward!" she said. Her voice  was like a whip.     "You fool.     Mrs.  McAlphine  brought  thc  food   for tlie  children.    Where would they be without it?    Thore's not a better woman  on earth  than  Mrs.   McAlphine     has  bctn to me���������oc one more ki*.d.   You  coward!"  Peters shook himself free.  "I don't care,'.' he said doggedly.  He  turnedj and  took  liis   cap  from  behind the door.  "Where are you going?"  "I'm  going  to  finish  it.     He  said  'Good-morning'  to me as if I was a  dog.  ' Itiougii  I'm  sorry I hit lier���������  now."  When McAlphinc returned home he  went straight upstairs. His wife  called to him and he wont into her  room at the side of the house. Ho  started back whon he saw her face  ���������the ugly marls across her forehead.  "What's the - matter?" he criod,  quickly understanding. "Who was it  that hit you? One of .the-men? Aro  you much hurt? They shall j\ay for  this!"  "Thoy shall pay my own way,  then.    Not yours."  "What's this?" said McAlphine in  a diflcrent voice.  "You said your mind was made  up. My mind is made up too. You  say you can't change yours. I can't  change mine."  "AMho hit you?" he interrupted.  "Toll me his name."   >  "No. Who was the cause of the  blow I bear? Who but yourself?"  "WKat do you masn?"  "Let us leave that alone. It's done  with. You've gone too far in pride  ���������too high. For weeks I'vo helped  thorn with food and money. Unless  you j-romisc to have tho men back  ���������to havo them back next week���������I  leave the house to-night."  They stood silent. And then suddenly, from - far below in tho still  house, came the noise of a ��������� gentle  .tnyping. And then a faint scraping  sctnd. Instantly McAlphine was  himself again.        ...  "Stay here," lie aaid softly. "Turn  that     light    low,     and     stay    here.  They're���������trying���������the���������catci���������of���������thc-  k ite lien  window.    I heard  something-  Into this was afloat."  The room was in darkness. He  reached tho door, but turned at her  voice.  "Jack."  she called,  "is there   any  danger?"  "None whatever, dear."  "But you're going downstairs!"  "It's all right." ho repeated, coming back into the room.     "Don't be  afraid.    And about tire other thing���������  I learn    in  a    minute what  I  have  been trying  for  weeks  not to  learn.  You're quite right."  On the landing ho took off his  boots, and crept quietly down. There  were two men outside. Ono was at  work on the window while the other  waited.  Tho window wont slowly up. As  Peters let h.'imsolf down noiselessly  from the sill into the room, he held  a lantern high���������nnd faced the barrel  of a revolver, held by McAlphine.  "Oh. it's you, Peters?" said McAlphine. "Who's the other man?  W3iy, it's old Ben Dodd. I suppose  vou camo here to-nigh't, Peters, --to  rob?"  *'Ycs,-' said Petors. Hc was defiant still. "I "did." I wasn't particular about stopping at that either."  "To rob, and, if necessary, to kill,  eli?" questioned McAlphinc in a deep  voice.    His revolver dropped.  But now Peters did not answer.  Hia courage was gone. He was once  moro mastered by this man who  would not bc afraid.  "Well, Peters, there's no occasion.  To-night one of you men struck my  wife. Mnn to man, I would kick  him through' the streets, whoever he  is. But now I sha'n't even ask you  for his name. My fight's done. I've  learnt my lesson. My wife has  taught me. You'ro not to think ���������  there enn't bc ono of you who will  really think in his heart that I stop  fighting because I'm afraid   of   you.  It doesn't matter a Sin to mc now  if you do think t!b,at."  Ho stopped. Peters could Hardly  find hi* vote. At last ho said from  dry lips:  "You mean 7  "You can all como bade next week,  and we'll work properly together. Is  tliat all rifvlifc for you? Dodd, my  son, you might bo dead for all you  could do In thc way of talking now.  Look here, it's not .vory late, is it?  I've got an idea.

But Peters, who had struck the  blow, was crying like a child. McAlphine left him thore. Going to  tlio foot of tlio stairs, he called  "Grace!" in a groat voico.  And tliey ha4 supper. It was a  roaring, if a most unusual supper.  And tlie lock-out was over.���������Pearson's Weekly.  BABIES  AS  SHOP-LIFTERS.  How They Are Taught to Steal in  London's  Big Stores.

The  woman, carrying a child about two  years old in her arms, and accompanied by- a little girl a, few yenrs  older, asked for some gloves, which  necessitated the salesman, turning his  back on the counter in order to obtain tliem from a certain box bo-  hind: Whilo doing so lie distinctly  heard the woman say, in a rather  low voico, "Dolly, pick up that for  mamma;" The man quickly turned  round, arid was just in time to sec  tbo woman taking a lace collar  FROM THE BABY'S HAND.  The salesman immediately accused  the woman of trying to steal. Of  courso, sho indignantly denied the  accusation. Nevertheless, a search  was carried out in tlio manager's  oflice, whicli resulted in the finding-of  handkerchiefs, pocket-books, and jewellery, which tho woman had purloined with the child's aid from the  other dcpartirients. The most -remarkable feature about this cas.e was  that the little girl, who was only  about nine years of age,, acted ns a  guard to the woman. Whenever  there was an appearance of observation she would pull her mother's  skirt, and thus warn her that someone was watching.  Some time ago a German woman  was caught in another establishment,  who had trained her little girl to  "lift" articles from tlio counter in a  very ingenious manner. The child  was' so small that she could hardly  put her face over thc edge of the  counter;   but  she  was  nn  adopt     at  thc-art-of-thicviug-^ Doth _worq___ul-_.  tinmtely. caught whilo trying to steal  silk remnants.

The child would  then pu'rl it over thc edge quickly,  nnd sho wns so smnll she could not  bo seen by tho snlcsiiiun when sho  took it from the floor nnd slipped it  under her coat. When arrested, the  child was found to havo seven remnants of silk about her person.  *   ANOTHER VTCTIM.    .  Little Bertie had boon left at homo  with strict orders to keep out of  mischief.

Borax, or, to givo it it's chemical  name, biboralo of soda, may be used  in tho. household as a substitute for  ordinary soda under nearly overy  condition in which the latter is required with considerable advantage.  It is softer, sweeter, and cleanlier.  In cooking greenstuff, such as cabbage, if tho cook uses, instead of  th'o ordinary soda in the pot, half a  teaspoonful of borax, tho result will  be as perfect colored a vegetable as  one can wish to bring to table. At  lho samo time, whilo bringing out  the coloration borax in no wny injures flavors, ��������� but. rather increases  thorn. lt is thc secret of the admirable green color nnd perfect flavor of pens as served  up  by    French  cooks Apnr_t_fr_oni_its_u_scs_in_  the  kitchen, borax is an cllicierit, cheap,  and easily obtainable antiseptic. In  small nnd tasteless proportion it  will keep milk and butler from turning sour nnd rancid. Mixed with  sugar and rubbed into a hum when  the latter is being cured it. imparts  a fine flavor and renders it safe  against tho ravages of the "bacon  fly." Muslin cnlico and flimsy cotton goods dipped into a strong solution of borax become prncticully lire-  proof. Tut into si arch it prevents  tiro Iron from singing and forms the  "china" gln/o so much sought after  by laundresses. Ladies who value  a lino complexion mny be interested  lo henr that borax is as powcrul a  skin Ionic as arsenic without the lat-  ler's poisonous qualities. A tablespoonful of ordinary powdered borax  to a washing-basin full of water  usod every day will, in most cases  produce a clear and fino colored skin  in tho course, of a few weeks.

The food value of the moro delicate  raw vegetables as eaton in salad,  aside from the oil with which they,  are dressed, is almost entirely in the  contained salts and acids dissolved  in their ninety to ninety-five per cent  of water. Salads must be held to  the pleasure-giving foods, tho food  accessories rather than true foods. It  is well known how scurvy is induced  on board ship by the absence of all  kinds of fruits or vegetables._ The  mixing and the flavoring of tho salad  is a curious ��������� thing. The cooked  mayonnaise is preferred by/some; the  morc simple French-dressing by others, ,and between are all shades ��������� of  practice and theory as to tho dressing of this succulent dish. Salt,  pepper, and acid, and some form of  oil, are all that arc really essential;  thc rest, refined taste points towards  simplicity.  Granted that one has green salad  tender, crisp, well grown, the washing ls an important part of the preparation. This should be done in  several waters, tho last to be ice  cold if possible, then the loaves  should bo placed in a basket or towel  and swung to ensure their being woll  drained, and if necessary each loaf  wiped as wet loaves cannot be coated  with oil.  Tho salad habit onco established  does much to promote good health  and cut down the undue use of meat.  T'ho disli is capable of endless variation, with fruit and vegetable nnd a  cliango in tho dressing, and is one  that may bo served at any meal.  DO  YOUR BEST.  This habit of always doing one's  best enters into the very marrow of  one's heart nnd chnractor; it affects  one's bearing, one's self-possession.  Tho mnn who does everything to a  finish has a feeling of serenity; he is  not easily thrown oft his balance; he  has nothing to fear, and be can look  the world in the face, because ho  feels conscious that hc has not put  shoddy work into anything, that, he  hus had nothing- to iio with shams,  and that hc has always done his  level best. The sense of efficiency,  bf~b"ein"g"mastor-of~oiie's-craft,-of-bo-"  ing equal to any emergency, the consciousness of possessing thc ability  to do with superiority, whatever ono  undertakes, will givo satisfaction,  which a half-hearted, slipshod worker never knows. When a man feels  throbbing within him the power to  do what he undertakes ns well ns it  can possibly be done, and all his faculties sny "Auicn" to what he is  doing, nnd give their unqualified approval to his efforts���������this is happiness; this is success. This buoyant  sense of powor spurs thc faculties to  the fullest development. It unfolds  the mental, thc moral, and thc physical forces, and thi.s very growth,  tho consciousness of an expanding  mentality, and of a broadening horizon, gives an added satisfaction beyond the power of words to des-  scribo. It is a realisation of nobility, the divinity of the mind.  MADE A DIFFERENCE.

May is a month which the Czar,  has conic to. regard as the most  eventful of the twelve. He was  born in Muy. He also camo hazardously near death in Maj-. When  travelling in Japan, beforo ho became Czar, hc was attacked on May  13, 1S91, by n fanatical Japanese,  but tho upraised sabre wus dashed  aside by Prince George of Greece.  Tho coronation day of thc Emporor  comes in May. Though ho ascended  the. throne on Nov. l, 3S94, Nicholas IT. was not crowned until Muy  27,   1895.  In Russia's war with Jnpnn tho  Czar is under fire oven more than his  admirals and generals. They must  answer to him. Hc must face tho  criticism of the wholo world. If ho  sends oflicors to the fiont who meet  disaster, he cannot escape tho verdict of history. If he would soek  to lay thc blame on headstrong bureaucrats, he must c\pcct to hear  himself called a feeble judge of man.  Where there is one-m.in power, there  is  one-man  responsibility.  For ono who attempts to forecast  the fate of Russia, thc-ieforo, a study  of the Czar's chat actor is pcculraily  illuminating, though it may fill some  hearts with foreboding In Nicholas II. one finds the ".erj antithesis  of tho typical war monarch. By nature the Czar is almost a recluse Ho  is averse to all that is combative.  He hunts more foi cxccicisc than for  the love of killing. He spends long  hours reading books of fiction, and  some of his favoirto authors aro  Hugo, Zola and Drckens. Evidences  of his peace-loving disposition may  be seen in his cffoi is for a uimersal  disarmament of Eur ope and thc establishment  of  THE HAGUE TKIBUNAL.  Tlio Czarina once diow a caricature  of her husband which reveals mora  of his inner life than perchance she  at first intended. She represented  him as a solemn rnfant, with bald  scalp, but bearded chin. Ho was  sitting in a hign chair, to which ho  was tied by swaddling bands About  him hung a crowd of anxious 1 datives, grand dukes, and giand duchesses, each with n nursing bottle,  and each struggling with tho other  to feed tho baby. But despite all  this solicitation and attention tho  bearded infant was puckoiing up his  lips to cry.  Physically and mentally, Nicholas  TI. differs in a striking degree from  his father, Alexander HI. Tlie son  is of medium height, measuring fivo  feet six inches. ITis figure Is inclined to frailness. His face indicates  a sensitive, even poetic, natuie. Hrs  oyes are those of a thinker rather  than a man of actron. They conicy  thought rather than sock to read it  in others. Most of these characters,  istics the Czar inherited from hii  mother. "Alexander III. posessod .->  huge body, a practical, blunt mind,  and a pessimistic opinion of human  nature.  Unlike most mon of artistic temperament, the Czar is methodical in  his habits. Ho rises punctually  each' morning at eight o'clock, an  early hour for Russian noblemen. Ha  breakfasts with tho Empress at S>  a.m., and at 9.30 a m. he shuts himself up in bis study, \ihcio for an  hour he reads newspapers or correspondence of special importance. At  10.30 a.m. he lakes a walk in  palace gardens, aud at 11 a m.  returns indoors to confer with  ministers.  At 1 o'clock in the afternoon  Czar Has luncheon, ufter which  takes a drive. Later hc holds  dience with court officials, and at 4  p.m. he goes back to his study,  where ho closets himself with his  books for four hours.  DINNER IS AT 8 P. M..  and then the Czar swings to tho \ery  appositc extreme. Leaving tho solemn library, he robes himself for  the banquet hall; for there rs no  royal      tabic       so    luxur ious as  that of Nicholas U.  If there arc guests the Cznr spends  the rest of the e\cnrng with them,  and retires at It p.m., if not, ho te-  t wns=to=his =study_al_l Q_nnd_labors_  th'cre until midnight. Tfe is fond of  having the Czarina by his side when  nt work among his books and papers, and she silently sows ns he  rends.  The Cznr is deeply religious. Thoso  who have seen him nt prnycr often  tell how nt such times he seems to  lose that cold rescr\c which usually,  characterizes liim. He often weeps  in church, and brushing uwuy tha  tears hc smiles ns if his heart was  lightened of some burden.  In spile ot all the brilliancy of tho  Russian court, thero is a shadow on  the lifo of its young nilcr which  many persons in many ways hnve  tried to explain. Some say tho  Cznr is the victim of nn incurnblo  disease. Despite ollicial contradictions, the report every now and then  emanates from his palace that hc is  nn epileptic. When a child, it is  said, he hnd fits every four months,  but of morc recent \.'������ra they have  increased in frequency and violence.  At ono time the Czar was compelled  to give up nil mental work and consign the cares of state to his uncle,  the Grand Duke Michael. In 1899  the Czar's skull wus ticpannod, an  operation: which is said to have relieved him considerably of his sufferings from; cfrcbral pressure.  tno  ho  his  tho  ha  au-  ful burns caused by carbolic acid can ' was all right; but I didn't su'it."-  THE NEW  ARRIVAL.

Assuredly  there will  be  a terrible  reckoning  day for   those supporting  what is called a Liberal  Government.  In all seriousness, we risk  tliose   who  make and unmake Governments���������the  sovereign electors of Canada���������to ponder over this .situation. For years.those-,  now in power denounced their opponents   for   expending .'$32,000,000; tind  their   S^.WXl.OOO   per   milium.      For  years tliey denounced tlieir opponents  for having so many  Ministers of   tlie  Crown.      For   years   they,   wilh    all  protestations of sincerity,   called  for  Senate   Reform:  anathematised  Conservatives    for    appointing   defeated  candidates for Commons'.elections, to  senatorial-   positions.      Presto'!     No  sooner in power than the  annual  expenditures have increased to $7(5,000.-  (.���������00. The number of Ministers has been  increased: scores of members of parliament have been appointed to  ollice  ancl half a score   of  candidates,   who  ran for the House of Commons and  were defeated, have been   elevated  to  the Senate!    The   records   of   parliament shew   this.      It   has   remained,  however, to prove  that there  is still  a lower-depth.    On the  iSth  of July,  Mr. Borden, leader of tlie opposition,  moved:���������"That    in' making   appointments to public oflices and particularly  to  thos-* of a  representative nature,  party services   should   not   alone   Vie  gageineirts, tlrey were forced to cancel  thenr.

WHY PLAY LOADED DICE?  considered, but selection should be  made witli regard to capacity and to  persona! character."  It will scarcely be credited that the  Government opposed tlie motion,  although ii was one of tire old time  Liberal pi-ofcs-ions. Tin- cause of tlri-  irrotion was that a man named .lark-  xin. who was appointed to an important position in Leeds, bad lieen publicly denounced by a judge on tin- lierirh.  us being guilty nf the heinous olTerrce  of endeavoring to induce men to commit perjury, and yet the crime was  condoned Iiy Government supporters.  Of course. Mr. Galliher'. was as usual,  ABSKNT !  S3IAL L PO TA TOES.  The course pur-sued by the Liberal  party in' respect of lhe farewell to  Lord Dundonald was unworthy of any  public body of men. The citizens of  Ottawa, irrespective of party, decided  to make the home-going of the distinguished soldier-an epoch in his life.  The services of the military bands of  the Capital were sought but the Gov-  ���������ernment refused point blank to allow  theni to parade. Those of the bandsmen who held positions in the civil  service were threatened witlr dismissal if they dared to show any courte-  pies to their late commanding oflicer.

AY'hnt  is to', bethought? Bill No. LIS "To  amend the Dominion Elections Act of  .1.1)00,"is worthy the source whence it  sprung. The proposition'is (and doubtless the government will carry out the  intention) to .reserve five or six constituencies, and to leave to tlie Returning Ollieers the settlement of the  day of nomination, perhaps, from two  to four weeks after the general election !

What will the people think of a representative, who deliberately villifies  and defames bis own constituency,  when tliere seems a chance of furthering hi.s own polilical fortunes?  It. was pointed out by the leader of  tin- Opposition, .Mr. H. L.

Would the  government consent to'this?

"I hud no idea tlrnt Ingleby was

said, tranquilly. **f wish I had
looked him up 'before.'*
"What vvas there to do, Claude?"
Lady Gertrude asked, from the depth
of hcr chair, with Irer usual air of
unwilling  intercut.
"Nothing-. There lay the charm.
Miss Ingleby is a crack piunist and
can talk. One listens. Ingleby is
keen on cricket, wants mo. lo set the

"Certainly," Sir Arthur added,
looking up from bis Morning l'ost,
"that kind of thing- is expected oi
one. And thc Inglt-hys or�� very
good people. You may rely upon iL
that I should never give tlie living
to a man whom 1 could rrot see at

���'But, Claude, just ftuicy Claude

looked up to his eldest brother as
a'prince of fast men.
"I always said," murmured Lady
Gertrude, suppressing tt yn-.vn, "that
Claude would develop into a model
squire in time. He will soon be tin
fail in top-dressings nnd short-horns
���excited by turnips and depressed
by cattle disease. You know the
kind of man���stout and beefy."
"There i3 no knowing to what I
heights we mny reach by dint of
energy and lofty aspiration," replied
Claude, looking before him with' a-
curious little smile, "even Jim, now,
Jim might become a bishop or ... a
judge. Corae, J im, you are the

All of a sudden a light seemed to
flash upon Jim and he began to
chuckle quietly to  himself.
"Is  Jessie Meade    a  crack    piano
player?"  he  asked,  demurely,   "or. is
��� she keen .bit cricket?" :
Claude looked up with ah / angry
frown that only half subdued Jim,
who had passed Jessie at the rectory
gate that aficrrnoiv.
"Jessie Meade, what about Jessie
Meade?" asked Sir Arthur, who had
lost the thread of the conversation
in liis paper.
"A very quiet well-conducted young-
person,". Lndy Gertrude remarked.
"1 really think her quite a godsend
for  poor  dear-  Igthel.
"1 don't know what, poor Miss
Meade has done to be called a young
tontioiiNiress that highly amused his
mother, "rank nnd nmne descend by
thc male side. The stjn of a duke's
daughter may  be only Mr.  Smith."
"Mr. Smith with a difference, a
duke's grandson," Sir Arthur interjected.
"Still plain Smith', or Sin it h-S Wellington at most, sir. But us you
said, beauty and manner nre the only needful things for a woman, her
iranre and rank come from her husband."
Sir- Arthur was not sufficiently interested in the question to point out
that this wus not precisely the purport of his words. "Did I say so?"
hu returned with a gentle smile, retiring into the seclusion of his Morning Post.
"I hope j'ou will go to no more

She sat wilh her hands, on one of

if sho dared trust him with the

would help her- to what she knew
to be her only safe course. Ke, in

key to her discontent'might bo. How

Milk kept at 5)5 curdled in eighteen

tlio keeping property of milk is concerned, low temperature is considered of morc importance than cleanliness.
In milk kept at 95, the species developing most rapidly is the undesirable ono known as Bacillus lactis
At a temperature of 70, this specie
develops relatively less rapidly in the

Such milk in the course of time

Although the temperature of 50 degrees is to bo emphatically recommended to the dairyman for the purposo of keeping his milk sweet and

from grazing any other kind af live

must be sown the right kind of
grasses to get the best results. First
and. foremost as a hog pasture is
clover. I keep a plot coming on all
of the timo for tho hogs. Do not
wait until one set of clover lias perished before sowing another. Those
fields need not be very largo if they
are judiciously managed. -The. hogs
should have access only to u small
part at a time.
Two years ago I purchased 80 hogs
averaging ubout 00 pounds each, in
lhe early spring. I gave tliem access to clover pasture with a slight
mixture of other grasses. September

tho weapon that hns been playing
such havoc with l.ussia's navy says
London Tit-Hits.
Never, Iio continued,' hns the ingenuity of mnn devised an iustrument of

graceful lines und its polished-silver

fact, a miniature ship, full of tho
jjflost delicate and complex machinery, and carrying destruction in it9

But now that wo have gone so far.
let mo describe it- in detail, and I
promise that you will admit, when
J have finished, that tho torpedo is
one of the most wonderful things
oven in a century of wonders. Now
that you have formed a mental pic-
turo of tho Whitehead torpedo you
can divide its length into sectious.
In the first section���the head of this
beautiful monster���you have a charge
of 200 lbs. of tightly-compressed
gun-cotton, wilh a detonator and a
pointed rod at the end or nose of
the weapon. When this roti comes
in contact with a hard body, sucli as
the hull of a ship, it is driven in
and strikes the'' detonator, which in
turn   explodes  tho  gun-cotton.
Immediately behind thc oxplosiva
compartment is a chumber, ovcr flvo
feet long, full of compressed air, tM
motive power of ,thc machine. So
compressed is this air thnt it exerts ���
a pressure of moro than half a ton
on every square inch of its compartment. Uchhid this chamber comes
another, called the balance-chamber,
containing the delicate nppnratun>
which automuticnlly keeps the tor��
podo at the right depth in tho water
checking instantly nny inclination to
rise or drop. Then comes chamber*
No. 4, in which are three small cyU -
indor-engines, which-ure, however,-ol
thirty horse-power, and into whicli
tho air passes from the chamber in
front through' a plpo fitted with governing valves. .. <*���
Next comes th'o' "buoywicy chain-*

the torpedo buoyant, and in it thf
requisite ballast is placed; and fln��>

rudders which guide it. Here, then*
wo have a marvellously-constructed
machine full of terriblo potentiality,

Well, in every battleship, cruiser
and torpedo boat thero are tubes,
like so many large gun-burrels, built
into the ship, some above, but most-;
ly below tU'e water; nnd from theso.
tubes the torpedes aro discharged at
the enemy's ship. A smnll ch'argq
of cordite nv compressed air, at u
pressure of 500 lbs. or morc to the
square inch', shoots the torpedo out
of the tube, along a guiding bar,
which' directs it until well clear of
thc ship. \Vhon it leaves the guiding bar the projectile is off, straight
as a bullet, to the target at which
it has  been aimed.
Tho original Whitehead torpedo had
a speed of eight knots un hour aud
an outside rungo of a quarter of a
mile; the torpedo of to-day���and I
am describing the very weapon the
Japanese arc using with such deadly
cited���will run as straight as a
dart for a mile (thanks to the gyroscope )__at a Sliced ^f pretty well *10

most wonderful is tliat it can be.adjusted from the conning tower of a
ship and discharged, by simply pressing an electric key.
When the torpedo strikes n ship
it doos not, ns sonre folks think,
blow her "sky high." There is a
heavy, quivering shock, a column of
water is sent, high above tho decks,
tliere is n sickly smell of explosives. '
and thut is nil Hint is seen or felt;
but below water tlio steel plating of
tire ship is rent nnd twisted like so
much paper, there is a griping holo
through wliich nn omnibus might
bc driven, und in most cuses no human power enn. snve the ship from
going to the bottom.

Oceans, like continents, have their  deserts. On the high seas there are  vast spaces whose waves have never  bcon parted by the prow of a sailing  vessel cf lashed by the propcUor of a  steamer: immense solitudes where the  flap of a sail i.s never heard nor the  strident cry of a siren; veritable deserts whoso siliincc is broken only by  tho howling of the wind ond tho roar  of this waves which havo been vainly  pursuirif;- ono another since tho days  of creation.  These deserts lie forgotten betwixt  the narrow  ocean  highways travelled  by vessels.

This Trouble is Caused by an Acid  in the Blood, and Can Only be  Cured Through  the Blood.  Rheumatism is caused by an acid  in the blood. That is a modical  truth overy sufferer from this trouble  should bear in mind. Liniments and  outward applications cannot curo  what is rooted in the blood���������tho dip-  case must bo cured through tho  blood. That is tho reason rheumatism yields almost liko magic to Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. This new  blood conquers the painful poison,  sweeps out the aching acid, soothes  tho nerves, loosens tho muscles and  banishes rheumatism. Mr. Robert  Morrison, ono of the best known and  most esteemed residents of Guelph,  Ont., gives striking testimony to the  truth of tho statements made above.  Ho says :���������"My trouble cum. gradually  and     was  pronounced  muscular  less ground swell, without being able  to hail assistance; her only  chance of escape is tlio possibility  that some oceanic current may drag  her into a moro frequented region.  FOLLOW BEATEN TRACK.  It is generally supposed that by reason of tlie universal increaso of maritime traffic the sen is everywhere furrowed by vessels. This is a mistake Ocean commerce has grown  enormously during the last half century, but that development is due  to the substitution of steam navigation for thc'old fashioned employment  of tire sailing vessel. When the. first  steamer began to churn tho water  with its paddle wheels, the sailing  fleet ceased to increase; with the ad-  - vent of thc screw propellor they began to decrease. The gradual but  constant ' disappearance of sailing  ships made the ocean more of a desert than before. Sailing vessels had  tlieir established routes in accordance  with winds, currents and seasons;  tho gaps between the routes taken by  outward bound and- homeward bound  ships wero often considerable; moreover, the capricious elements not infrequently played the mischief with  nautical instructions, and as a result  the field of operations for ocean shipping was vastly expanded.  OCEAN  HIGHWAYS.  This is no longer true to-day. The  liner goes straight ahead, in defiance  of wind and wave; tfie ports between  which she plies arc great industrial  or commercial centres, -whither come  numberless railways, serving as prolongations of the lines oT navigation.  Freight cars carry their loads "of merchandise to "the lesser ports.and the  cities of tho interior. The railway  has killed coastwise navigation. ���������  The ocean highways are therefore  anything but numerous. The most  frequented of oceans is tho Atlantic.  Apart from tho Folar sens, we see  that in its northern part thero is only' one desert r.one���������a dreary waste "of  waters between the routes from  Europe to the United States or Canada, nnd thoso from Europe to the  Antilles. In thc soutli, between the  routes from South 'America on the  Western American const and thc  routes from Soutli Africa, extends  a desert occasionally traversed by the  steamers of the lines from Cope Town  nnd "Mozambique, which, when tlie  coffeo season is at its height in Brazil, cross the Atlantic for.cargoes at  Rio Janerio or Santos.  PATHLESS DESERTS.  The Ind fan Ocean is frequented  only in the north, by lines out of  India and Tndo-China, and a littlo  way in thc west by liners from Oce-  anica, .which call at Colombo and  thon make straight for Australia..Two  lines, each witli a steamer a month,  follow a slender lane from Australia  to Capo Town. The Pacific is the  Sahara of grcut seas.

Ho who takes good care of tho days  need give himself no worry ovcr the  yenr.  Character consists in a man steadily pursuing tho things of which Jie  feels himself capable.  A fault which humbles a mnn is of  more use to him than a good action  which puffs him  up  with  pride.  It is easy to find something good  to sny of success, but the struggle  must go a-begging for encouragement.

This great industry now has a  capital account exceeding 310,000,-  000, and the gross profits last year  passed the million dollar mark for  the flrst time iu the history of the  enterprise. When the' original purchase was made it was arranged that  the owner's should receive in perpetuity annuities and stock valued at  more than $2,0CO,00O." The city ��������� later  adopted tho policy of purchasing at a  premium theso annrrities, and last  year wiped out more than one-third  of the amount. Under private management gas cost consumers . from  SI.25 to SI.150 "a thousand-feet, but  this has been reduced steadily,'until  the rates now stand at 4S cents for  motive-power arrd ."54 cents for lighting. It is expected tlrat this will be  cut .to 50 cents this year.  When  the     plant  is  fully  paid  foi-,  which will not bc many years at tho  present   rate   of   profits,   tho   citizens  of Glasgow will  pay not moro     than  30 cents  for gas.

Work was in progress  for two and a liilf months and consists  of corduroy .and. macadam. The road  is in better shape now than if. .ever  was. but still there is room for improvement. It would be a wise plan  for the provincial government to give  one man continuous employment on  the road, with power to procure help  when necessary. Undersuch conditions  the wagon road could be kept in good  shape all lhe year round.���������Camborne  Miner-.  ���������Gillard's   Pickles,   just   in  at C. B.

The Great Floto Shows gave I wo  performances yesterday, afternoon  and evening, to as well pleased crowds  of spectators as ever went into a circus tent, says the Vancouver Province.  The juvenile patrons, especially, considered that the chance to buy popcorn and peanuts and feed the animals  were alone worth the price of admission. It is the regular circus all right,  and one almost felt young again as he  sniffed the unmistakable circus smell,  saw the sawdust, and heard the alluring cry of the man with the pink  lemonade.  Ves, it was the real thing. It was a  circus, all right, and as enjoyable nil  around us any of tliem. The show is  not the largest in the world, but ifcis  clean, and. is really good. Sonic of  the acts are particularly well done.  The Japanese tumblers and jugglers  ���������ire splendid. This group is original  ami does new work well, while, it does  the old things better than any of the  others.  Even better, perhaps.'fchiin the Japanese is the St. I^eon family. This  group is made up of a man, his wife,  two daughters and a son, and what  they do not do irr acrobatic work is  hardly imaginable. They work singly,  in pairs, three, four arrd all together,  and something is going on all the  time. The. family caiiie to this side of  the Atlantic with the Forepintgb  shows, arrd has beerr hero ovor sirrce.  One thing particularly noticeable  about the work of the St. Leons is Iho  easy grace with which everything is  done.  But the real charm of a circus is  lis  animals    The elephants, camels and  llamas got thc peanuts and  popcorn  whilo the children just doted over tho  ��������� NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that  under and by virtue of three Warrants of  Execution issued out of the Count}' Court  Kootenav holden at Revelstoke in actions  wherein A.
