Forty thousand citizens of Ottawa  .���������mil people gathered here from points  nil over eastern Ontario said good bye  and Godspeed to Lord Diindoiurld,  says tht* Ollawa (Jiti/.t.'ii :  Amid thu- ringing aoclaim of a  tremendous, wildly enthusiastic con-  course of people who swarmed in and  around the Central depot and filled  for hlocks the adjacent streets, liis  lordship loft the cily at S:IO o'clock in  a special train over the ('ainida,  Atlantic railway. By his departure  Ottawa loses a respected citizen of the  noblest and mo-t heroic type.; Canada  loses the services of a thorough  soldier, valiant fighter and a worthy  son of Scotia, who has done much to  perfect and-strengthen (he bond of  imperial unity, lt wns up lo tho  .-.tiling sense of sympathy and regret  of Lord Dundonald's departure that  adequate expression was given.  Never in its history has Ottawa  witnessed anything like it; never hns  a public man been the recipient of a  series of ovations so enthusiastic, so  whole-souled, so heartily sympathetic.  The Capital city has been the scene of  marry triumphant? celebrations. Its  people and theii-i neighbors from the  country outside have gathered to  welcome royalty, to bid Godspeed to  departing warriors and hav.e assembled to welcome with equal lervor the  homecoming of its hereoes from thc  battlefields of the cnipii e; victories for  British arms havo brought 'forth outbursts of jubilation" from patriotic  citizens; the city has been the scene  of many national, political and fraternal demonstrations and receptions  and send-offs to statesmen and men of  status; but never in warmth, in  fervor, in regnant enthusiasm has  such a demonstration been equaled.  It was a cosmouohtiur one. In it all  classes' united. Senators, members of  parliament' trom coast to coast,  citizens of prominencu and status in  Ihe community, business men, nieii of  brawn and muscle, sons of toil and  labor, delicately dressed society  women brushed side by side with  unpretentious rticip ..girls, , farmers  'mixed in with those high up in the  learned professions.". They wero out  in thousands���������old and young, rich and  poor, patrician and plebian with the  common aim and pmposc of venting  their admiration and sympathy for  Lord Dundorralil as a man, as a citizen  as a soldier lighting ior ajrightcous  principle and siilVering the " consequence's of a heroic stand. l'artyisin  was forgotten. The people were  there not lis Conservatives or Liberals,  but as loyal British subjects.  AVhat rrrost appealed to oire was tho  spontaneity of tlie gathering. Theie  was little organization. An executive  committee drafted a programme and  the people in their enthusiasm saw  that it'was implemented. It is well  known how elforts were made to  minimize the'affair. Dandsrnen and  otheis in government employ were  quietly but effectively intimidated,  the government organ made air incendiary appeal to people to stand  aloof, rabid partisans spoke in tho  most insulting strain of Lord Drin-  ilonald and deprecated anything in  his honor. To nil these appeals' thu  public mnde answer. The one- long,'  unending ovation to the hero of Lady-  smith silenced the mouths of his  enemies and opponents*. On the way  of his lordship's triumphant progress  to the station tlie people were not  content-UT-look"-on:~~ the v~ crowded  round die carriage, gi lisped the hand  fir the man of the hour, cheered  frantically, waved flags nnd handkerchiefs, and added to all this was  the roll of drums, the call of bugles,  thc skirl of the bagpipes and the  music of bands lending color and  effect and intensity to the tout ensemble.  After all wa.s said rind done if was  not only a personal triumph, a tribute  to the man, rind the expression of a  people's love for a brave and valiant  fighter; it was something of perhaps  greater and more ominous significance  ���������a thundering decisive, adequate  vindication of hi* courage during the  circumstances leading up to his  dismissal. It was one grand outburst  of popular FCirtiment against subordinating the militia to the machinations of narrow-minded partisans  and inti oducing into the military  body insiduous issues of polilical_  influences.  Lord Dundonald left Ottawa convinced, if there ever had been doubt���������  that he is no "foreigner," but that  leaving here ire is going from tire  household of his friends, lie went  away carrying witli hinr proud memories of his residence in Ottawa* and  of the magnificent tribute from its  citizens. To liis former fellow citizens  he left a kindly message of gratitude  and good will a fid the injunction to  "Keep both hands on the Union Jack."  On the whole the demonstration  was ii most magnificent and unparalleled affair, exceeding by far the most  sanguine expectations. - Tt was .1  tinging rebuke for the government  nnd its slanders and tbe outspoken  admiration of a fret* and unfettered  democracy for a courageous, patriotic  soIdi*?r, standing by his guns, holding  fast to his principle and giving expression to his honest and conscientious convictions.  Another Drowning at Sicamous  Another sad  drowning  fatality occurred   at   .Sicamous,   aliout .110011 ou  .Monday last, the victim being a young  man named Mr-own, C. P. R. telegraph  agent at that poirrt.     This accident Is  partieulary   brought   home  to Revelstoke owing to tlresirange coincidence  with   tho circumstances surrounding  the  drowning of   Charlie Paget, the  former C.  P. R.  agent'at Sicainous,  at   tlie same   spot about four weeks  ago.    It appears that Blown Irad gone  into the lake for 11 swim and plunging  into   the   water   from  his   boat   was  apparently,     taken      with     cramps  and   soon sank  to  tho  bottom.   The  unfortunate  victim  was taken out of  the water in  about five minutes time,  but the spark  of  life had fled and all  that  willing hands  could   do   to resuscitate the body proved futile.    The  deceased  was   a stranger in the country and little is known regarding hiin.  A brother of deceased  resides in Virginia and a message was sent notifying him of the death.  The remains were brought to the  city (JVcducsday morning and the  funeral took place, under the direction  of the C. P. R. telegraphers, at 11  o'clock to tlie cemetery from R. Howson & Co's undertaking parlors.  REVELSTOKE'S  Labor Day will be Loyally Celebrated in This City���������A Good  Programme Being-Arranged  ���������Committee of Management.

The thanks of tho citizens of Revelstoke arc due to the trustees of the  public schools for the prompt manner  in which they liave taken hold of iind  pressed for the. establishment of a  high school in tliis city.

Editor Rgvelstoki*: Hi3itAi.ii :  Silt,���������Would you kindly allow me  enough space in the columns of your  paper for the insertion of a clipping  Y **- . MACKENZIE AVENUE.  tyty tytytytytytytytytytytytytyi  fiom   an   English   newspaper, whicli   "������ ������"''" He!i^ISiiUe  may   be   of   interest   to   our  mutual |    friend ' the   Editor   of   tho Kootenav  Mail.  It seems that he is taking a very  great interest in the Dundonald incident,- aird strange to say he only  sqems to run across items in British  newspapers which deal somewhat  harshly with Dundonald. Now if he  is doing this-simply to make people  more favourably disposed toward lhe  Government which deprived Lord  Dundonald.--of his-.-coni'mand, and is  rather afraid of the .effects which  tlieir actions mny have upon the"coming elections, then I think thai lie. is  unwise. He must remember thai the  Canadian people as" a whole thiirk'for  themselves and aio not apt to be led  astray hy the mure insertion of clippings which show that he is not judging the case fairly but is simply trying  to defend his party after they have  made a blunder.  It seems that Dundonald committed  himself when he made the speech at  his banquet in which he accused tho  Government,   or  members   of   it.   of  brng his hands together' in the same  manner as thoso 1 ravelling jewellers  do when they toddle up and say "Can  I sell you a sheep witch," only in this  instance its "Veil and phat's new  down you vay." Beware! Think  well of what you say and look out for  it's being misconstrued.  And now Editor, 1 am afraid that  my letter is too long already, so must  close with a woid of advice to our  dearly beloved mutual friend: Let  Dundonald alone for the sake of the  Liberal party.  Respectfully yours,  Ta i.i!ot Li d u i-:.~n a i.e.  [Tho  article,  from   the r.ondon S.it-  urrday Review, referred to in the first  paragraph of  this  letter, will ap2*teai-  I'n.]  The Mail's Veracity  The following letter appears in the  last issue of our esteemed contemporary, and the IIehald reproduces it  today for the benefit of its numeroir-;  readers in this part of British Columbia.

Arrow Lake Mines Sold.  The sale of the Meadow group of  mini's, situaled in the Arrow Lake  district, in the region known us the  Narrows, has been consummated and  the property deeded by W. A. Coplen,  tlio former owner, to 15. R. Bloohbor-  gor, who is acting for eastern and  foreign men.  "These properties," said Mr. Coplen,  "have arr interesting and unique history. I located them in 1805. The  stake.-! were, fraudulently destroyed  and the claims re-located and sold.  This titlo lapsing, I maintained my  rights by again locating. At another  'trtiitj^the property was bonded to 11  French^ baron, who made a substantial first payment in cash and a second  payment of $5,000 by. a check which  was dishonored at Ihe bank.

"Rory's" many  friends in Revelstoke join with the  liKUALD in hearty congratulations.  using tho militia for political ends.  This was his. chief offence," his ouly  offence.  . Tlie wrong consisted of. making public things, which the'present Government at Ottawa would much rather  for their own sake, have kept secrot.  Why?' If the accusation was not  true then why all this talk:-1 All they  would have to do would be to prove  that there was no foundation to L)un-  donald's statement and the matter  would have ended there. Brrt, rather  than lake this apparently simple step'  thoy retreat behind their ministerial  dignity and say, Oli, our constitution ! Dundonald. will make ducks  and drakes of it, if lie gives our game  away like that! And what else do  they do? "Why just try and sever  "one of "thetool'ew-chriins���������which-birrd  Canada fo the Empire. Arrd tho mollifying pari of it is, that it i.s not the  wish of the people.  Thoy know that Dundonald was  doing hi.s best for the Canadian militia and were thankful for- it, nnd tlris  being the case, is the Laurier Govern-  inent one whicli represents tho peoplo  when the people are clamouring ior  Dundonald to bo reinstated ?  There is I am almost certain scarcely  ono of us who would havo put up wilh  the Minister of Agriculture's interference as long as Dundonald did. And  to think that Lord Durrdonald of  Soutli African fame should have tu bu  over-ruled in his hard thought out  projects by a man who is supposed to  know more about the growing of  spuds than anything else. I ask'all  who may seo this letter: How long  would tliey themselves have tolerated  such an interlorence ?  And if Dundonald's accusation was  true,. why is our highly esteemed  friend, editor of the Koolenay Mail,  kicking. If I remember rightly I saw  in his columns an aificlc in which he  was demanding truth as if he wn->  actually fond of it. I moan the article  in which lie referred to il part of Mr,  Calder's sermon in which Mv. Calder  quoted from a former issue of the  Kootenay Mail. Then our dear friend  of the Mail so disliked the appearance  of his own  words  that he bridled up  in a passion and    I  have still in  my mind's eye the picture of a man  drawing himself up to the full height  of his 4 feet 3 inches and smiting his  hand upon his manly bosom exclaiming "Let us have TRUTH from tiie  pulpits." Truth! I wonder if our  worthy friend knows the meaning of  tlie word, if so why not let a few of  tlie 5,500 who road his papep.be given  a treat in the shape of a greater adherence to it in his columns.  And last week we have Mr. Beatty's  letter. My advice to Air. Beatty's  friends is this: "When fyou see a man  coming up to you with a won't-wash-  oil-smile   on  his   face and softly rub-  untruthful  in reference to' Mr. Beattv's attitude  in regard to the Arrowhead Conservative Association.

These were the fjiieslions tlio oflicer  set himself forthwith to solve, little  dreaming, however, whither his investigations were to load hiin.  The two Irishwomen, having satisfied themselves, "departed, and the detective, disguised as a dock laborer,  followed them.  Thoy made straight for the heart of  Liverpool, and then into a maze of  courts and alloys lying between Park  Lane and Paradise Street, at tliat  time one- of the most dangerous of  the many disreputable quarters  abounding in tho groat seaport of  England.

A sudden wave  of popularity has risen in tKo orst-  whilo calm course of its followers, and  many new organizations liave lately  sprung up lo help foster this "religion," says the Philadelphia. North  American.  Philadelphia is the world's groat,  cen Ire of tlris cult. Churches, mission homes, rcsUiurnnls and boarding  houses nil tend to strengthen tho believers in the doctrine nnd help to  mako fresh converts.  "Man's food becomes his mind,"  might be considered thc creed of this  cull, whoso followers are so impressed with tho benefits derived from a  diet without meat that, they have  banded themselves togetlrer, founded  a church, the only ono of its kind in  the United - States, and sought to  convert others to their way of thinking and living.  The church; with its vegetarian pastor, vegetarian congregation and  vegetarian choir, is called the First  Ttiblc Christian Church of Philadelphia.  FASTOR AN'D I-EOPLE.  Tho Rev. Henry S.

The Philadelphia church wns founded some years ago, and its congregation has gradually grown from a  mere, handful of people to the flourishing hotly, new members now being  constantly gained.  Thc forms of their service are fow,  and aro very simple, but impressive.  Thc golden rule is tbo basis of their  creed, and a spirit of peace pervades  their placo of worship.  Another noticeable feature, and ono  which instantly impresses the visitor  to tho Christian Church, is tho health  and vigor of the congregation. The  men appear alert and muscular, the  women fresh and blooming. Old ago  seems to conic with flagging footsteps  and lho marks of timo are light.

This is, of course,  a correlative of'tlio well-known beneficial action of fertilizers in increasing  plant growth'. 11 is now proposed,  however, to attempt thc cultivation  of medicated plants���������that is, common  vegetables containing abnormal quantities of substances it is desired to  administer.  It is evident to every one at all acquainted witli the laws of physiology  tlrat the assimilation of mineral elements by tho body is much more  readily accomplished when these aro  partaken in the form of food in vegetables. In the past, if tlio body has  needed ,-.in excess of iron, it has been  supplied by iron "tinctures taken  through' a glass tube after meals.  IKON IN TJ7K SPINACH.  Tlio modern idea is to supply this  want by certain vegetables, such as  spinach'. Fxperimonts looking lo  tlio demonstration of this scheme hnvo  been undertaken recently in JSuropc.  Ferruginous' plants wore grown in  soil enriched by the addition of hydrate of iron, and upon analysis it  was found that plants grown in such  soil contained a, much larger percentage of iron than similar plants grown  in natural soil.  Of courso it is not lo ho supposed  that this increase in the percentage  can he increased indefinitely, but it  can be curried to, a maximum point  which is very much greater than llic  average. This same demons! ration  hns also been carried bul in connection with tea cultivation. Samples  of ton leaves from several plantations  having similar climate arrd altitude  conditions, but different soils, were  gathered, nnd, after,drying, were analyzed in tlio laboratory for tlieir content of iron, nitrogen, phosphoric acid, silicic acid, cnflicin and asli.

Thn    recollections    of     ono     duy's  sport as recorded by "llaoul" in thp  Indian  Sporting Times indicate tliat  leopard    shooting   is full  of  interest  and  often   productive  of exciting  incidents.  llo and a friend, whom ho calls  "M.," as soon us they got to the  place of rendezvous, wero met by  the usual motley crowd of villagers.  They- then pointed out to us, snyrs  thc writer, a rather heavy looking  bit of cover in a ravine consisting  mostly of azaleas and wild cardamoms. The villagers wore positive  tho leopard was still in what appeared to be his stronghold; that it  was from thoro tlrat ho hnd delivered  his last attacks. Close to the covor.  tho leopard wns snid to bo in was a  grove of mango trees, and thither  M. and I took orrr stand, whilo we  sent a couple of tho moro nctivo  nmong tho spectators to climb a  tree, llrat partly overlooked tho jungle. The men had token up Willi  them a good supply of clods. They,  had not thrown in many, of thoso  missiles when there was a roar and  out charged n splendid looking leopard, who, finding the const clear, as  tho men had now retired to a safe  distance, broke away toward tlio  soutli.     Wo had  A  COUrL,E  OF  SNAP  SHOTS  but   missed.       While     our   attention"  was  taken  up  with  thm brute,'    another leopard    broke    awny   toward"  tho nortli, and tho men on thc trees-  who hnd soon it, said it was a much  smaller    one    than  the first.      They  told us nlso that they had ninrked it  down in n small but thick bit of cover a couple of hundred  paces or    so  off.     This cover consisted of a stunted   sccstim    tree   thickly    overgrown  with wild convolvulus,  with a   good  deal of undergrowth beneath it.

This was.  immediately   answered    by   a mulllcd  sort  of growl,   followed  by  tiro  loud  thud of a heavy body falling.  Seeing no further movements lithe undergrowth wo cautiously approached it, und one of onr followers, bolder than the rest, soon came'  across tho body of thc leopard, extended on its side and quite dead.  It was soon hauled out in llic open,  and it proved to be a three-quarters  grown cub. measuring 5 feel 3 inches  as it lay. This shot fired .at random proved to be a wonderful fluke,  for.the bullet had gone throughL thc  right eyo of the leopard, killirig Jt  on the spot.

Miss Ingleby looked at her with a  searching directness that would havo  put most peoplo out of countenance.  "If yoir nro not vory deep, my lady,"  sho thought, "you are certainly tho  most refreshing young person I ever  mot." "Woll," sho replied, seeing  that Jessie did not blench, "perhaps  you are not so very good looking  after all.

And men would not  have been made more beautiful than  woman," was tho reply which astounded Miss Ingleby, who had only  recently; taken an t interest in Jessie,  though sho had known her slightly  for tho last three years, during  which lior brother had been rector of  Mnrwoll.  .���������Tho. latter,? no longer distracted by  his sister's conversation, applied himself diligently-to his broom, and had  just finished sweeping his lawn ?and  heaping the" short math' in a barrow  whon- to his surprise. Captain Medway appeared . .within tho gate, an  infrequent visitor, and he went forward to receive him7 with a dnzod  look which was not unporceivod by  Captain Medway. ,  "I am fortunate in finding you at  homo," the latter said, "though my  visit is to Miss Ingleby;; for whom I  have ah errand from my sister."

Mr. Ingleby-, looked gravely, steadily nt tbe young man's troubled face  while uttering somo commonplaces  about time,- hope, and _ patience,  which ho know to bo futile. He had  seen that expression upon so many  faces when visiting the sick, because  they; scorned ; to moan moro -than  hopeless .silonco.-' Medwny's voico  and face said "sho will never bb hotter,'-' and thoy implied a pained self-  reproach7 of which tho rector had the  key; for it was while in hcr brother's  charge that Ethol Medway'-. had received the injury which darkened her  youth'.  '-.  "Not witliout.hoart," he reflected.  "I wanted lo sec you about the  cricket club," Captain Medway continued, in his usual voice. "I shall  bc knocking about hero for a few  weeks. I suppose your eleven is  made up, but ifl can bo of any uso  'I do want someone to show whnt  bowling means," Mr. Ingleby quickly,  interrupted, plunging headlong into  the subject, on which ho was eigcr  as a school boy, having, as Captain  Medway know, a profound conviction  that cricket wns the basis of all  manly virtue.' if not of ovory Christian grace, and conceiving it to Wo  hopeless to try to improve tho morals and manners of-, the village  youths until he had imbued thorn  with a love aiid knowledge of that  nntionnl game.  Thoy walked up "and down'beneath  -ihc-trocs-for-a-good-tcn-miiiutes,-dis-  cussing and arranging, Mr. Ingleby  happily oblivious of everything but  tho grand pastime which wus to  'soften tho hearts ond purify:' the  souls of tho Mnrwcll youth until he  wns brought face to face with .������������������unwelcome- fuels by 'Mis guest's sudden  question If Miss Ingleby- wero at,  homo. Ifo would have replied that  she was engaged, hail not the drawing-room window furnished a full-  length portrait of his sister reclining  in- a low chair .talking to Jessie,  v.'ro wnv ir.visible from wltho'it.  Some mnd notion of carrying Jct-eio.  off into safe hiding crossed his mind  and was dismissed before hc. reluctantly ndmitted tho wolf into'���������'; the  vcry; presence of the Pel lnuib, who  appeared no whit dismayed'or surprised at the'.-invasion.        .,  Miss Ingleby had_been watching hcr  .voting guest with nn interest on  which hor-.brother's recent observation had put a keen edge. Jessie's  remarkable beauty struck hot- moro  forcibly than it had done before, perhaps because her attention wns turned to it, and the idea that, beauty  of. such distinction amounted to a  misfortune in a girl so strangely situated entered hor mind.  Jessie was a littlo pale, which was  natural after her hot. walk, but the  graceful languor of hor attitude in  tho low chair she had taken betokened something more than physical  weariness; thore wns, to a keen observer, a subdued passion in it and  in the half-strained sot of her features/but, sharp ns Miss Ingleby  was, sho could not see far below  that wonderful combination of mask  and mirror, a human face.  She was a litllo stnrlled by llio  sudden radiance which transfigured  tho young girl's fnco in thc midst of  their quiet chat, an electric flash,  which gave depth nnd fire to hor  oyes and mnde hor form and features  instinct with spiritual life. A denth-  Ijr   pallor, succeeded' this    lightning  brilliance,  Jessie    moved,  as  if    uneasy from  bodily     pain,   her     heart  beat in thick pulsations so  that sho  pressed  hor hand  a moment  to    hor  sido,  her movement apparently gave  her relief, hor color returnod in   rich  purity,    sho    spoke    with animation  and  held  herself almost proudly,  all  her beauty seemed aglow with   somo  spiritual  tiro as she glanced  through  tho open wirrdow, pnst Miss   Ingleby,  whose face was turned to her-.  . Surely,  Miss  Ingleby  thought,    tlio  number of broods Cousin Jane's heirs  hnd hatched  that spring was irot   a  question calculated to make a   girl's  heart  beat too    fast und her    color  como    and     go   in that    remarkable  wny; and what was thoro in  the announcement  that    twenty-four     cows  wero now in milk at Hodwoods,   und  yielding so  many pounds of     butter  a week to    make    her   glow liko    a  young Pythoness ?   Yet  thoso     wore  tho    unexciting   topics under  discussion, nnd thora wns nothing but the  sunny   green  linden-tree  beforo    Jessie's oyos���������so Miss Ingleby   thought,  her own fnco being turned from    the  window.  Tho strango firo was still in Jessie's oyes when Mr. Ingleby brought  in Captain Medway, whoso visit, unaccustomed ns it was, in nowise surprised Miss Ingleby, so. nnturally-  arid gracefully did he communicate  his mission from his sister.  Having explained his wants, ho  turned and apparently became aware  of Jessie's, -.presence for the first  time.  "How do you do. Miss Moado ?" lie  said, with tho exact shade of surprise that unexpectedly- mooting an  indifferent person produces, expressed in his face. "I havo just  seen your cousin, ho hopes to finish  carting by. sunset. People need not  bo very anxious about thoir hay today, Bliss Ingleby, need they?"  "Peoplo need' be anxious about  nothing, unless they are goose," sho  returned; "just as if anxiety could  keep tho rain from coming down."  "You arc a philosopher," he commented, with the charming smilo expressed moro by the eyes than by  any other feature that few people  could resist, much less Miss Ingleby, who had now "reached nn age  wlien young nnd fuscinating men aro  regarded with maternal tenderness,  and who openly avowed that sho  loved n chat with a fine, bright-eyed  young fellow who had won his spurs  in actual battle.  Mr.' Ingleby had narrowly watched  tho demeanor of both his guests on  their mooting, and the result of his  scrutiny was eminently satisfactory.  Ho asked Jessie to come to d table  ut tho other end oi the room that he  might show hcr a portfolio of engravings, ovor which they chatted  happily, while Captain Modway, taking a seat by Miss Ingleby, engaged  her in a conversational '''-.tournament,  in which, though be broke many a  stout lance, he was of course vanquished.  Whon tea was announced,, Miss  Ingleby supposed thai Captain' Medway would not caro to join lhem,  and hoard with surprise that ho had  a special devotion for thc hybrid repast known as high ton, nn evidence  of simply; domestic tastes and a  guarantee of all human virtue which  sho often produced subsequently in  his? favor.

It has been said that few men die  of old ago, and that almost all persons dio of disappointment, personal,  mental, or bodily toil, or accident.  The passions kill men sometimes even suddenly. The common expression,  "choked with rage," has little exaggeration in it, for even though' not  suddenly fatal, strorrg passions shorten life. Strong-bodied men often die  young, weak men live longer than the  strorrg, for the strong uso their  strength', and the weak have none to  use���������the hitter take euro of themselves  the former do not.

HOT  WATER.  Under many  conditions  hot    water*  is  ono  of    the most potent  remedial  agents    that can be employed,     and  often,  when intelligently used, it   accomplishes morc than drugs.  But like many other things powerful for good, its; abuse may prove injurious,and     produce   results     quite  opposite to what was intended.  Tho effect of    warm7 or moderately  hot water applied to Uie surface     of  tho body is to cause the blood-vessels  and tissues.'-of thorskin and underlying  regions  to   become   relaxed,   and     to  lose for th'o timo being thoir natural  tone.    Th'o blood -'supply; of tlio region  is much increased, and the pores are  opened.    If tho entire body has been  immersed this action produces marked  changes   in   the   distribution   of     tho  blood,  and  a  considerable portion  of  this  fluid  is  taken  from  the  interior  of the body and brought close to tlio  surface.    If cold air  irow strikes thc  body a sue'den  chill is vcry likely to  bo the result.  This explains tho great case     with  which ono takes    cold after a   warm  bath,"���������; particularly if    tin's has     been  prolonged,   and    it:also suggests the  natural remedy. This is quickly to  sponge the entire surface with cold  water beforo using the towel, which  should  be  applied   briskly.     " In  this  way tho relaxation is followed b.v  prompt contraction, tho circulation is  mado active instead  of sluggish,  and  a delicious sense of vigor and stimulation -is produced.  Hot water is necessary, properly .to  cleanso tho face nnd neck, nnd to  'stimulate'.-' the pores to cast off. tho  fatty, material which might otherwise  stagnate and cause pimples or blackheads.

The petition was addressed to the Premier. That document was suppressed for nearly two  years. Why? Because its publication would have damaged the Liberal  cause. The same .course was pur-sued  in respect of Mr. Blair's denunciation  of the Cos deal. Lord Dundonald's  report of 1902 was similarly treated.  And letters calculated to connect Hon.  Sydney Fisher with political interfer  ence with the Militia were clandestinely withheld from Parliament. The  only justification for tbis line of conduct seems to be the political exigencies of the Liberal party. The Prime  Minister has evidently reached such a  lofty opinion of his own importance  in this country, that lie hopes to treat  the humble elector as a mere pawn on  the nation's chess board. If Canada  has   sunk   to   that   level,  she has no  longer need for a Priirie~Minister or "a  Parliament.

Cressman, Revelstoke y  V-  ���������1  NEW  WAIITS TIMBER  Ulrich Tells of the Mines of That  Country.���������Says There is a  Good Market for Timber  That Part of the World.  in  Says the Nnlson  News:    0. A.   Ulrich, mining agent nf New Zealand,  is  in lhe city mid purposes making this  st'ction his I'ultue Inline     Mr.   Uliicli  resided for 10 years  in   New   Zealand,  2tl ol" which were devoted  to mining.  He devoted his energies'principally to  dredging operations and  lode enterprises.* The yield of precious and useful metals in New Zealand, he says,  i.s  large.    Up to the end of 1U0U the totrrl  mineral   product    of    the    country i  amounted    to   ������7.*),01)7.SO0,   ot"   which  ������57,400,100 was gold.    Tiie  most  productive gold districts are Ot.-rgo, which  yielded   over   ������22,000.000;  Westmoreland near ������1S,000,000.     As  compared  with   other   Australian   states.   New  Zealand ranks.second in the total gold  and third inthe total mineral  output.  The gold exported in 1901 amounted to  iil,~XI,TSl.  Jlr. Ulrich says that some of the  mines have yielded largo profits. The  Waihi niine in Auckland has paid ������1.-  000,000 in dividends. There are a  number of dredging companies operating in the auriferous gravels on the  Moloni river, Outgo province arrd the  Buller river, on the west coast of New  Zealand, which are yielding good profits. One of the companies, owning 17  hydraulic claims was promoted,!.}-Mr.  Ulrich. Tt was promoted witli ''capital  from Germany, '."ilr. Ulrich says he  has had the usual fate of the mining  man, us on some enterprises he made  money and on others he lost.  For the past eight or ten years he  has heard a great deal about the lode  mines and the dredging propositions  of British Columbia and has for a long  time liad a desire to come here and  sc-Stle. Finally he arranged, his  aiTairs so that lie could do this. He  pulled up stakes and brought his wife  and children witli him and intends to  * settle down here and embark in the  lirning business. ���������r-Mr. Ulrich ' will  keep up his British , and Germany  connections and says it should not be  long before he will get hold of something good to presnet to thenr,  One thing that- strikes him very  forcibly is the iiiiuieuse" tiiuber areas  in this country.. There is not much  timber in New Zealand and very little  in the great archipelagos of the Pacific  ocean and he says that there should  be a large business built up in New  Zealand and elsewhere for British  Columbia timber. The lumber should  not be sent out haphazard there. The  best way is to establish depots in  charge of agents. Thc. timber here is  just what is wanted there and all that  is necessary to secure a market for  large quantities of our lumber is to go  after it in the right way.  NOTICE.

Mr. Hall went up on Ute mountain, one time, 1o work irr his mine,  and Willie and Edith went with him  to keep house in lhe cabin, and for  company. One side of the mountain  belongs to the Uto Indians, nnd they  hunt deer and other- gntno the>:������, but  their village is down  in the valley.  Orre morning Willie nnd Edith went  to the mine with their papa, but  came back in a little while. When  they got to the cabin door they saw  some very queer tracks in the soft  earth, a little like tho tracks oB a  wheel, but there were a great marry  or"  lhem.  '*I think," said Willie, "some now  kind of animal witlr tremendous long  feet must have been here." Kdith  began  to cry.  "Little whiie girl no get afraid!"  someone said, anc! when they looked  around there wns Squaw .Wilh-la-  with standing by her pony, and her  boy was with her. too. Tce-ma-ha  came up and shook hands with Willie, and pointed to the poles that  wero fastened to the saddle at one  Bnri and dragging on the ground at  the other.  "Ugh!" said With-la-with, "wigwam pole animal got plenty long  tracks!"     And she laughed.  The Indians set up their wigwam  near the cabin, and then Willie and  Tee-mo-ha went, up to the spruce  timber to hunt. Tee-ina-ha had a  how and about 20 arrows, uncl he  took lhem and left his rifle at the  -camp. Near the spruce thicket, they-  found many tracks, and somo of tho  trees irad been peeled. Ugh ! Porcupine!" Tee-ma-lm said. They looked everywhere for squirrels, but could  not find any. In thc top of one tall  tree there was a bunch of moss that  moved.  "Porcupine !" .the Indian boy said,  again.'.7 ,;������������������'  ''-;'.',.'���������'''?���������,'.  Willie had nevir seen a porcupine.  The funny bunch of moss moved  aroiind very slowly to the other side  of the tree, but Tee-ma-ha ! went  around on that side, too. He fixed  an arrow to the bow and held it up  before him, arid it was taller than  his head.  "ify! but that's a fine one," Willie  whispered.  "Yes; With-la-with name mc Tce-  ma-ha. anil it mean 'a heap long  bow,' when while boy talk." He  aimed at the porcupine in the tree-  top, and "ting!" went the bowstring  and the arrow flew straight at the  bunch or* moss.  "Fine shot!" Willie shouted, as the  porcupine  came   tumbling  dowrr.  It was a'big one. and had greenish-brown fur, arrd something else  that was not fur. on its back and  tail. "Whew! Needles and hatpins !  Who will ever carry thi.s thing home,  I'd like to know!*' Willie said as he  touched the dead porcupine.  But Tce-ma-ha picked it up by the  lower   jaw,  where It had no    quills.'  THE POPE'S DDOTUE-  AU  INTERESTING   SKETCH  OF  A  FAMOUS   CHARACTER.  How He Diffors Front His Canadian Colleagues���������An Example  Worthy  of Being Followed.  Dr. Lapponi, the famous physician  to the Vulierrn, whoso mime has recently como so greatly to tho front  on account of hi.s unremitting attention to His Holiness the Into Pope,  I.oo XIII., and the high esteem with  which ho i.s regarded by the present  l'ope, His Holiness I'iris X., is it  man of commanding genius. But be  is something more Hum that. He is  more than n mere mnn of science.  Hu is a man of original nnd independent mind. He stands orrt nmong  medical men of all nations, themselves tiro 'lower of tho world's intellect, by reason of his fine independent personality. Ito has had  differences with Iris fellow scientists.  J hit rro ono has ever disputed for an  instant tho remarkable nature of his  professional attainments or thc unflinching integrily of his personal  character. Ho is afraid of.no man.  IJut ho has a higher courage still.  He is not afraid of tho bugbear of  professional etiquette which frightens even so:-.'-, of thc greatest doctor's.  As an example of this may bo mentioned ono very interesting respect  irr which he has differed- from the  medical men of this country. Tho  latter are trammelled by medical etiquette. No ono disputes their scientific skill or their- unselfish devotion  to their work. Brrt they are limited in their labors by ono remarkable  scruple. They will pi-escribe and  experiment with drugs of nil kinds  sanctioned hy thc.

No matter how overwhelming tho evidence of whnt such  a discovery when sold ns a proprietary medicine, has accomplished,  they look coldly upon it nrrd will  rarely admit that they have used  it with success. It would be "unprofessional" to do so ! Dr; Lap-  poni is troubled by no such scruples.  For instance, tho numerous remarkable cures which have been proved  by newspaper reports, independently  investigated, to have been accomplished by the medicine sold in Canada, under thc name of Dr. Williams'  rink Pills for Palo People, must be  well known to all Canadian doctors.

First catch your good husband;  that is the main thing. Having  caught hrm, tlio next and most important thing is, to keep him good;  and the only way to effectually bring  that about is for a wife to be good  herself.  Always remember one thing: never  use a lover ill whom you design to  make your husband, .-lost he should  either upbraid you with it, or, worse  still, return it in kind���������afterwards.   .  Repress ever-/ inclination to play  the tyrant; men may be led, but. thoy  most certainly will hot be driven.  Gently and persuasively ruled, you  may do ' almost'���������'-.anything with them;  treat them haughtily and dic.tatorial-  ly, and you wilh-.liave yourself to  thank  for the  natural result.  Avoid, bothibefore and after marriage, Viihy suspicion even ot managing your husband; Never seek . to  deceived him, even ever so innocently,  or attempt to impose on his understanding.

To bo over sanguine before marriage, or to promise yourself absolutely unalloyed felicity is a mistake, for  in the present condition of things social, it is unwise to expect too much  of even a good man. He is just a  man,, not an angel, and if, in the  course ' of time, you discover about  the .husband of your choice anything  not quite according to sample, uso a  little tactful forbearance; be, in fact,  j-a little blind, and pass it over as holing,  after  all,  only  human.

Fortunately for the majority of  married men, women are, as a rule.  only too well fitted for the true wifely position, and the hints wo are  giving tiro chiefly designed for those  whoso youth and inexperionco render  tho matrimonial issue a mailer of  anxiety,  doubt and uncertainty.  This is an age of early marriages,  nnd the girl who enters upon wedded  life befoi'o she is well free of her girlish irresponsibility, needs a tew  words of advice in and warning with  regard to the ordering of herself in  tire eyes of her husband.  Man, lo the average girl in her lato  teens, is a human enigma. Ro much  of his life is necessarily passed away  from liis homo, that his habits,  thoughts, his entire personality cannot but be unfamiliar, somewhat in  tire nature of a riddle indeed, to ono  whoso world, from childhood, has  been limited to her domestic hearth.  Such a, girt may get a good husband, but her ability to keep liim in  that desirable condition mny not bo  equal to her endeavors, however  praiseworthy; it is then "safe bind"  tliat haa a far deeper and more important significance than "safe find"  ���������matrimonially considered.

Choosing h piece of chocolate colored, rich looking soil, the woodcock dug some fifteen or- twenty holes  in this soil, an inch or two apart.  with his bill. Thon he began n kind  of cake walk. He beat the earth  with his wings; he rapped it with his  bill sharply; leaping into the nir, ho  alighted, stiff and heavy, on his foet.  Was     the     woodcock insane. ?     Evidently not.

From thc lime when his dying mother had committed her youngest-born  to his elder brother's charge he had  exercised a constant care over him.  And now, with a smile whicli lit up  his face and made il almost beautiful, the professor answered as his  brotlior knew he would:���������  "A favor, Jack! Aye, a hundred,  and that before they're asked. What  is It this lime���������more scrapes'? Only  don't say you've been getting into  debt again.

I promised to seo you aboard  the steamer and watch you off on  your' voyage; so how can I comfort  tho girl? Imagine me comforting any  girl!" And Hartford senior's voice  took on a note of despair.  "Tlmt's just where your goodness  will come in. T Want you to see mc  on at the station and then devote  yourself to thc girl.

Ho'queried, after n few moments liad  passed in silence���������nn'd deep thought  on the part of one at least.  "Love her? Why, man, I love tliat  girl more than any I'vo ever loved  yet, nnd I've had n good deal of experience in that line! Love hcr? Yes,  I should rather think so! Jim, if  that girl were to" ask me to eat stones  for her speciul edification lid iio it,  and smile as I eat theni until she  was out of sight, at any r.nle. I'm  srrrc it's final this lime. I feel queer  all ovcr when T think of her!"  Then for a while silence came over  tlio pair, for tlie professor's mind was  conjuring irp a vision of the newly-  done summer.  A quaint old garden thronged witlr  merry, laughing guests; while gossamer gowns flitting hither and llii-  tlior tlirough tlio darjj bockground   of  long, firm clasp of the hand; and then  ihe professor discretely turned liis  back and became intent on a lurid  poster.  Tho guard waved his flag, tlie engine shrieked and panted, a carriage  door slammed, and' Jack was olT! The  last view of his brother that tho professor got wiis. a gesticulating figure  leaning dangerously out of a window and waving n hat, oft-repe,ntcd  ���������good-byes" growing fainter anil  fainter, and then the train vanished  round a curve, and the two spectators wore left alone.  Fow words were spoken as the pair  climbed the hill towards tho town.  Once the girl .shivered and drew her  firrs more closely around her, but the  professor was unable to tell whether  it was the colli of her deep feeling  that prompted the movement. Fronr  the occasional glances which he cast  at Irer half-averted face he gathered  that she was bearing up remarkably  well under tlie shock of parting, but  lie had heard that these restrained  natures often needed but the slightest  reference to tlie present trouble to  form the prelude to a bitter burst of  grief.  Above all things ho dreaded a  scone, and the mental picture that  ho drew of "Molly in tears led him to  avoid all  mention of the parting.  Tliey reached the gates of the vicarage, _ and'Molly turned to say "goodbye." As he liekl her littlo hand for  a blissful moment the professor, recollecting how badly he was fulfilling his  trust, ventured on a few words ' of  consolation.  "Cheer up, Miss Ch'arleris. "After,  all. threo years i.s but a brief span  as compared with the many years of  a lifetime. And Jack, in spite, .of  his gaiety, has a warm, true heart. I  know���������who better?���������tho fund of lovo  which, he hints under a careless exterior."  Ah. yes. I know. Mr. Hartford���������1  feel sure that hc will be loyal." Slolly  was-speaking now with a brave effort to maintain her calm, thc elder  brother thought.  "And you���������you will not grieve? I  know ho loves you with all tho  strength of his heart, for he has often  told me that he had only one hero,  and that one his brother."  Slie was able, even in tho mio'st of  hcr own grief, to iind words to comfort him. "What a sweet, true spirit the child possesses," thought he;  "she sinks herself and turns to condole with me! Oh, Molly, Molly, if  only he  had not loved you!"  But .aloud he said: "You will permit mc to call and tell you of Jack's  doings. Miss Chartcrie? We can sit  and shed our tears together and call  back to remembrance the days wlien  he was with us," he continued, with  a-feeble attempt at mirth.  "Oh, J wish you would. Come as  often as you wish, for there will always be a warm welcome awaiting  you."  "A welcome for Jack's brother, but  not for James Hartford!" ruminated  that individual as he plodded homeward. But thc temporary feeling of  bitterness  wns  swallowed  up  in     joy-  afraid I shall liave to leave the task  of breaking the news to Miss Molly  to you, for, in spite of all my check,  I haven't the pluck to do that. Will  you, like the dear, good fellow that  you arc, tell her that I was never  worthy of her, that my one wish is  for her future happiness, that a  man's affections cannot, be placed to  order, and generally smooth matters  over'.' She is so young that sire will  easily get ovcr tho shock, if nny  shock there be, and you will act drjv*  lomntically, T know": nnd so on.  The first feeling that invaded the  professor's breast was one oi consternation; tho second, disgust, and  the third���������yes, although he tried to  laugh it aside with o shamefaced air  ���������was undoubtedly .relief. Now thc  Held was open; and when once the  girl liad recovered from her pain lie  could plead his own cause. And yet,  what a caif lire youngster- had proved! In spite of his earnest protestations he Iind fallen in love with the  lirst pretty face he mot, and shifting  nil responsibility on to the shoulders  of his long-suffering brother/had left  hiru to mako his excuses.       ���������*.  It was too bad; and the professor's  bosom glowi .1 with righteous indignation. On I lie spur- of the moment he  sat down to indite a scathing letter  of rebuke to the erring youth, but  his brotherly love was too strong and  he found himself wandering oil irrto  mild remonstrance.  "I will go ancl 'brenlj tho news to  Molly," he thought, "and then, fired  by the sight of her anguish, T shall  bo ablo to forgot everything, save that  he is n dishonorable scoundrel Then  I will writo a letter tliat will make  him .writhe"; and, acting on Ibis new  impulse, ho took his hat ami coat  and started for the vicarage.  His heart was vcry near his boot  as, arrived at the bouse, he asked the  "dapper maid if Miss Cluirtcris were  at home.  "In thc drawing-room, sir," and he  was in  the slighted  one's presence.  She looked so winning, so free from  care, as she rose to greet him. that  ho found himself inwardly reviling his  brother for having given him the task  of quenching the light of those glorious eyes.  After the first few commonplaces  had been spoken there ensued an awful pause. Neither ono seemed disposed to speak first, but Hartford,  finding the silence intolerable, summoned all his courage and drew the  fateful letter' from his pocket.  "I regret to bo the bearer of bad  news. Miss Oharteris, but that is iny  unpleasant    task " to-day.     Jack���������my  brother���������is���������i.s "    but     the       girl,  glancing a"t    the    en\elope    he held,  broke in:���������  ������������������Not dead!���������oh, say lie i.s not  dead!"  ,"It would have been better- had he  died; but no, he is not dead���������only dishonored. Forgive mo if I seem  harsh, but I cannot attempt to shield  him in any way. Jack is to bc married in six, no Jive months," and  there w,as a tone of tragic intensity in  his voice.  Thu girl's head was bowed, her face  half hidden by her hand, anil the man  tried in vain to read hcr inscrutable  expression.  No sound, no motion came from  her, and the professor- thought that  tho "depth of lier grief has stricken her  dumb".  "Forgive me if I Have been too  abrupt," ho said, "but the consciousness of his infamy compelled' mo to  blurt out the truth. If I can ih any  way atone for the wrong my brother  has dono, you have but to command  me. I will gladly serve you by all  means in my power, but, oh. Miss  Molly, do not grieve too much."  Thc bowed head was lifted and Molly looked across with a somewhat  puzzled'air. ���������  Has the shocK driven her mad?"  tho man asked" himself, with a sudden, tightening fear at his heart. Her  first words reaSBured him, however,  for she asked' "Brrt why should ]  grieve. Mr. Hartford? Jack has but  followed tlie impulse of hi.s nature,  and I, for one, wish him joy.

It is not nn uncommon thing irr  this age. of advancement irr industrial  and engineering matters for the present day engineer to assume that ho  knows much moro than his ancient  brother, and while this is true in  many things it frequently happens  that un invention or appliance commonly believed to belong to modern  limes is found to have been known  and used centuries ago.  Ropes made of various kinds of  fibre and leather are of very ancient  date. Kopos of palm liave been  found in Egypt in tho tombs of Beni-  Hassan (about 3000 B. C), and on  the walls of these tombs is also  shown the process oT preparing hemp.  In a tomb nt Thebes of (he time of  Tholhmos 111. (about 1G00 11. C.) i.s  ir group representing tho process of  twisting thongs of leather and the  method of cutting leather inlo  thongs. Thc Bible tolls us that  the spies sent by Joshua into Jericho were let down in a basket, presumably by means of a rope.  At Nimrud, Assyria, a carved slab  showing the siege of a castle was  found, on which a soldier was represented in the act of cutting a ropo  to which a bucket for drawing wator from a woll outside thc castle  walls  was  attached.  The wire rope is generally considered a modern invention, a product of  modern skill, nnd it will surprise  many to learn that its manufacture  is really a rediscovered lost art.  Although tho "Assyrians practised  the art of wire beating, no evidence  has been found to indicate that thej*  useh wire for making rope.  The excavations at Pompeii have,  however, brought to light' a piece of  bronze wire ropo nearlj* fifteen feet  long and.Rbout ono inch in circumference. This ropo is now in , thc  Museo Borbonico at Naples. It consists of three strands laid spirally  together, each strand being mado up  of fifteen wires twisted together, and  its construction does not, therefore  differ greatly from that of wire ropes  mndo to-duj-. Pompeii was buried  A. D. 79, 3,825 years ago, but how  long wire ropes had then been known  It is impossible to toll, though, judging by. the knowledge shown in the  construction, it may be safely concluded that they had been known for  a considerable time. The uses to  which theso ropes wore put are not  definitely known, but further excavations may. shed some light on the  subject.  As to the use of rope tramwn.ys, it  is said that they wero in use as  carlj- as 104*1.  AN EVASIVE ANSWER.  at the good  fortune which had befall-   not  engaged  to  any  other girl,    was  en  Jack;   and,  besides,  how  could he  fool bitter against Molly,  of all     the  pftiplc in the world?  One montK passed, then two, and  still no word came from tho absentee. Occasionally the professor paid  a brief visit to the vicarage in fulfilment of his promise, brrt whether it  was that Molly wns losing her affection for Jack, or tlv.it she did not  wisli to flaunt'.'lier sorrow in public,  for some reason Iris name was scarcely ever mentioned between lhem. And  llnrlford, try as he would to fight  against his nature, found himself  growing moro deeply in love than  ever.

ViiiV YIOAST RAISES TJOUr.'H.  How many good housewives know  just why yeast causes their bread to  rise, anil when their dough fails to  rise, how juurry can tell just why?  The cause of success or failure i.s due  to the action of yeast. Yeast is a  plrrn.T-a-coIl- so-small-that- only -under tire microscope is it visible. It  is estimated that tiro individual ypast  plant is not more than 1-11800 of nn  inch in dinirieter-.- Tiro ytvist exists  in three stales; tlie real ing Htnte, ns  wlren tlio gooil housewife gets it in  her yenst cake; tlio growing stato and  the  spore-bearing  slate.  It is witli th'o growing slate that  tlie Housewife has to do in rnnking  her bread. When- a little .yeast is  placed in a solution which' contains  pr-o-jrer material for- food, it! begins to  grow by a method called budding:  tliat is, each'.Individual plant puts  out .a whole lot of litllo plants' from  itself. Thus, when it is put into the  dough', the plants iind food irr tlie  sugar*, to which some of the starch  lias been changed. The 'yeast feeding  on tlio materials in the dough ferments the sugar, producing carbon  dioxid and alcohol. Tlie 'carbon di-  oxid accumulator;!..'as "'a.'ga.s.. in small  bubbles, and the dough being sticky  and heavy, it is not possible for  these bubbles to rise rip to tlio surface "as in ordinary fermented liquids.  The gas, therefore, simply collects as  small bubbles in ' tiro midst of the  dough', causing thc whole mass to  swell. Tlio h'eat of baking drives off  lire small amount of alcohol and thus  expands the bubbles of the gas, causing tlie dough to rise still moro. Tlris  makes tho bread light and porous. It  also  makes   it  more  digestible.  Yeast plants? grow readily in Warm  temperatures, and best if kept between 75 nnd 00 degrees. If above  00 'degrees, bacteria arc apt to grow,  giving the bread undesirable flavors.  Thus dough whicli Iras been kept too  long is apt to sour. Sour broad is  due to tlie development during fermentation of certain acids in tlie  dough, which come not from the action of .yeast, but? from the growth'  of bacteria,, present either in the  yeast or in the flour.  long soaking,  pineapple and oranges, all these- make  delicious shortcakes.
