Hi  >TH  A0010ENT  Robert   B.   Farwell  and Thos.  A. Brown, two Popular C. P.  R.   Machinists     Accidentally  Killed by Freight.  It.   is   with   sincere   regret that the  Herald  is  called upon this week to  chronicle anothrr sad accident, which  occurred   on   Saturday   evening last,  resulting irr   the  death of two ut the  most popular employees of tbe C.P.R.  at   Kevelstoke.     Tire   victims    were  Thomas A. Drown and Robert B. Far-  well, the former being n married man,  leaving a  wife and child to mourn his  loss.  About six o'clock Saturday evening  the unfortunate men, with a number  of companions, were returning borne  orr a hand-car after spending the afternoon at iOnglo Pass about three miles  wost of   the eily.     Ed. Trimble, who  was also  of the paity, went ahead of  I be  hand-car on a speeder.    Coining  down   the   heavy   grade   at   the rock  blurt" a   mile   west   of   the Big Eddy  mills, Trimble observed  a, freight approaching.     Jle  immediately stopped  his   machine, gob   clear of   the track,  and signalled to the men on tbe band-  car.    Before  the  car however, which  was descending the grade very rapidly,  could be -stopped  it collided with the  freight.     Those   on  boaid,  with  the  exception   of   Brown     and   Farwell,  realized  tlieir danger iu time to jump  from   the  car   thus   escaping injury.  Brown was cut in two  by one   of   the  driving wheels  of lhe freight engine,  death   being   instantaneous.   Farwell  was badly cut about the head and was  crushed, beneath-the pilot of the. en-'  gme, antl  died  iininediatclyon reaching  tbe hospital, whither he and the  body of Brown were at  once, taken by  the   train   whicli   pirt   br.ck   for that  purpose.  An incpiest was held by Dr. Cross,  coroner', the jury returning a verdict  of accidental death, no blame attaching.to anyone.  Robert Far wall's jbody was shipped  to Osbawa, bis former home, the  funeral arrangements being in charge  of the Masons, Oddfellows, and local  lodge of International Association of  Machinists, of which orders the deceased was a valued mem ber. and  whose members followed the remains  from the Masonic hall to the C. P. R.  depot on Monday- morning. O. G.  Macdonald, of the machinists union,  accompanied the remains east. The  lato Mr, Farv. ell was well known in  the city, and was a general favorite  with his fellow employees in tbe (7. P.  R. shops, where lie bad worked for a  number of years. Deceased was -17  years of age.  The funeral of Thos. A. Brown was  under the supervision of tire Machin-  isls Union, was largely attended, rind  took place on Tuesday morning fronr  the Methodist Church, where Rev. Mr.  Sutherland held a short service, to the  C. P. R. depot, where the body was  shipped toMooscinin, deceased's former home, for interment. The body  was in charge of Then. J.

Former Rosslander Fatally Injured.���������Shooting Not Justified  ���������Belligerent Barber Fires  Bullet Into Bert Mclntyre.  Bert Mclntyre, formerly of Rossland and well known here, was shot at  Bo-sburg at 7 o'clock Friday night  and is not expected to live, says tbe  Rossland Miner : His assailant was  Frank Taylor, a barber', and the  shooting seems to have been unjustified. The .Mirier learned at 7 o'clock  lasl night that Mclntyre wa.s still  alive at bis borne in Ho-sburg, but  tlrat tire attendant physicians had  pronounced bis case hopeless. Taylor  made no effort to e-eape aud was  lodged in jail at Colville to await the  outcome bf Mcf ul3're'b case.  Mclntyre was running a. fr uit ranch  at Bossburg, and ,was in Rossland  recently arrangiug to ship small  fruits lo Rossland retailers. When  resident here be worked for G. "W.  jW'/Budo, and later was in the einp'oy  of the Inland Telephone Company as  lineman. :"  On Friday night at the hour specified MciTntyrG and a friend were  standing on the main street of Bossburg. Mcfntyre and his acquaintance  had been drinking and weie i-cufHing  in it fiiendly manner', neither having  any intent to injure tire other'. "While  they weie scuffling Mcfntyre noticed  Taylor looking at tlrem arrd demanded  to know what be was "urbbering at."  Some word? passed, and it is believed  Melnlyie threatened to strike Taylor.  At any rate Taylor warned Mclntyre  not to approach him, and Mclntyre is  said to have taken a step in bis direction. At Ibis Taylor drew a 3S  calibre revolver from bis hip pocket  and. shot Mclntyre through the  stomach. The injured man was taken  home   and     two     phyMcians   called.  'They opened thc abdomen, found the  bowels punctured, but failed to locate  the bullet.  Xextniorning Taylor was arrested  and taken to Colville. A Bossburg  man slated that there was-no excuse  for the shooting. Mclnryre's attitude  toward Taylor not "being any justifi  cation for the use of the gun. Mc-  Intyro's wound is said to be such that  thei e can be nu hope for his recovery.  Bert   Mclntyre,   thc victim   of the  ������hooting  affair  at   Bossburg,    nien--  tioncd  in   tbe  foregoing   article   was  well known in Calgary, where he lived .  with   bis   parents  for   a   number   of  years   and  is   also  well  known   to a  large number  of people  in  this city.  He w,v a popular young mnn'and the   '  IIkuald regrets to chronicle the sad  affair which ended a promising career.  Mr. Mcfntyre's father Hvps  at Kamloops and   baa   two   brothers   and-a.  sL-ter  living,   besides   two  uncles at  Notch liill.  | {Later���������Bert Mclntyre, the victim  of Friday's shooting at Bossburg, died ,  at bis home there at 3 o'clock Sunday  afternoon. He was an expert bicyclist  holding numerous trophies for speed,.  a clever musician and singer, and an  all-round entertainer. His assailant,  Frank Taylor, is held at Colville, the  county seat, awaiting the action of the  authorities.  No Election This Year.  Mr. D. G. Macdonell, who has just  returned from a trip to Ottawa, said  this morning tbat the general feeling  around, federal headquarters seems to  be that there will be no election this  autumn, says the Vancouver Province.  Very little is said about the matter  and tbe reported probability tbat the  Government would go to thepeople  ibis year does not seem, says Mr. Macdonell, to be seriously considered at  the present time. The feeling seems  to be that the Government will see  the Grand Trunk Pacific scheme fairly  launched and (he actual building of  the road started befoie going to the  coun trv.  i  I  i  \  -������������������'-*g'-'*^.ra*''>W'  H  H  STORE  HEADQUARTERS   FOR   FASHIONABLE  MERCHANDISE  LOVELY   SUMMER    DRESS   GOODS  AT BARGAIN PRICES  Tire most attractive display of Ladies' Dress Goods,  Wash .Muslins, Blouses, Skirts, Tailor-Made Costumes,  Ele. all New Tie-igrrs ami pretty patterns.

He took the top-hat on thc peg  beside him, and, having hurriendly  settled his hill, nnd lipped the waiter, set off, his brain busily occupied  with pleasant anticipations of a  meeting with hcr, who had promised  to .-be his very own ns soon as Tom  Wilton's finances reached the hundred pounds necessary for the launch  upon  the matrimonial  sen.  Fifty-seven pounds eighteen shillings and nincpence ! That was tho  sum' that yawned like nn awful  chasm between Tom and bliss unutterable ! -  "Tom, deal-, what is the matter?"  cried Miss Clara, as she advanced to  meet him in the hall, and noticed  tho gloom upon his face. .  "Nothing, dear���������nothing !" he replied. "I've only been thinking how  horrible it is we cannot marry he-  cause���������because "  She stopped hrm in thc usual manner when he rrttered that old lament.

Why,  hundreds of men would bc only too  glad to marry when they've got a  hundred pounds !"���������   ���������    '  "Woll, there's an awful barrier !"  he almost groaned. "Why can't a  mnn marry when he likes ? It's too  bad !      It"'s "  She stopped him again. Tom was  in the dumps. He was often like  that.      It rather flattered her.  "You've brought tho song with  you which you were to try to-night,  haven't you ?" she asked a little  later.  "It is in my overcoat pocket," he  replied; "but J cannot sing it tonight, dear. Not a bit���������not for  worlds '."  he  added gloomily.  It was all nonsense, she declared,  lie could, and he should,, sing. And  she tripped from the room and down  the stairs to the hull, where his coat  was hanging, to get that song from  his  pocket.  What a nice hat Tom had got!  She lifted it'from its place on���������' the  s.tand. Why ever did the foolish boy-  carry letters in the lining, she wondered, ns her eye caught one stuck  there,  no  doubt  to  prevent,  its  gptt-_j_ers     t.o '���������:Abe   proprietor;   who     came  ing crumpled in his pocket on ils  way to the post.

"Miss Ada Breegravo, Wilbrook  Mansions,Kensington,W.      ���������  A little chill of terrible premonition passed over her as she read thnt.  direction. The letter was not sealed,  "���������lad not Tom often declared that hc  had r.o secrets���������none from hcr���������that  he only .wished  she  could  know    his  Well, pop will bc delighted." she  went on.

Tho inexplicable conduct and  cruelty of Miss Clara Hunter had  plunged hiin into the profoiiiidcst  gloom and misanthropy. Wen and  women were all his foes.  "But I'll be hanged if I'll please.  them by starving myself to death!"  he muttered to himself grimly.

SLAVES OF KIND BANE  FRENCH        FISHERMEN        OFF  NEWFOUNDLAND  COAST  The     Crews    Are    Brought       Out  From France    Every  Year.  The Basque and Breton fishermen  are being ferried across the ocean to  begin their annual trawling campaign against the codfish on the  Grand Banks and to endure six  mont.v* of misery and wretchedness,  writes a correspondent at:St. John's,  Newfoundland.  Francis' little colony of St. Pierre-.  Micpiolon, lo the south of this island,  is the seat of her Crand Banks fish-  cry industry, whicli occupies 400 vessels and 10,000 men, and is regarded  by her as the mainstay of hor navy.  To this end she subsidizes it with  bounties equnl to severity per cent,  of tho value of tho fish itself and by  her conscription forces into it tho  youths of the provinces fronting on  lier Atlantic seaboard.  On tho Grand Banks also gather  every summer the fisThing fleets of  JVIiissacliusets, Nova Scotia and New-  formtlalnd, but of all thc thousands  of trawlrnen who frequent these ocean  ledges the lot of tho French is unquestionably the most miserable. The  business at best is ardtrorrs and venturesome, but the crews of''other nationalities have this in their favor,  that they are fceo agents, llic arbiters  of their own destinies, free cither to  join ship or to stay ashore, whereas,'  the French" are the slaves of (he conscription, and powerless to obtain  oven ordinary, comforts foi* themselves  not to speak of more substantial  rights.  St. Zierrc, the solo harbor of the  Miquelon group,.'Franco'.maintains a.s  an outfitting hasp for the fishing  fleet. The ships, except a few owned  in France, arc kept there all the  winter, the .crows being brought out  for them every spring," hnd taken  back nt the  USD  OF TllFi SKAR0N.  The fishermen/ are made auxiliaries  for (he warships. At sixteen they  arc liable for service, putting in two  years as beach boys at St. Fierce, to  handle 1 Irr; fish in tlio drying process,  and then three years with the trawling fleet on tlie banks. From this  they are drafted into the navy, if  physically fit; if rejected, thoy continue at the 'fishery.  Every year, about tho middle: of  If arch, these marine conscripts ne  somblc at St.: Srai'lo, an'd after being  enrolled and inspected aro horded like  so..much live stock aboard -.-tho..'.transports, which convey them out to St.  Pierre to bc dispersed among the fishing vessels 1 in which they work for  the summer.  During this* period thoir lot is  hard. Thoy observe no Sabbath and  enjoy no relaxation. From d'aylight  till dark and oftentimes for hours after, they toil without ceasing, subject to the .caprice, or brutality ot  drunken or heavy.handcil skippers,  and living amid tho most squalid surroundings. :They sleep in foul-smelling, ill-lighted quarters, without sanitation or cleanliness, sheaves of  straw their': beds and salt bags their  coverlets.  Their fare is the coarsest, tlieir raiment the scantiest, their recompense  the smallest. X.iving as they do  amid vice and drunkenness, their finer  instincts are soon blunted; and unless  thoy can desert to Canada, or Newfoundland, as many do each year,  they are all soon reduced to the common level.  No more repulsive place could be  imagined than" the: forecastle of a  French, banker, where twenty men  or more are gathered.

Ono of these, ;i writer' and traveler,  had joined the vessel for the purpose  of studying Urn lifo of the fishermen  and exposing horrors currently . reported to be practiced among tlroni.  Tlio skipper, learning of his purpose,  persistently persecuted' him'during I he  cruise, i'vcnliifilly causing his den Hi,  Because lie protested against the (logging of 11 boy, hc w,as stripped, tied  to a mast and flogged himself, and  left hound' nml" linked on' deck for  hours at niglil in  the'piercing'cold.

The amateur .������ailor, having dorlrir-  iifl hi* would report this atrocious  murder to the nulliorillos, the skipper  nnrl tlm rnnte I drew him overboard.

Tho   skipper   had   the      body j  hoiali-rl  lo   the  rua^thcad   for  twenty-1  four hours before cimting  it   into the  ocean,   as     ii   warning  (o   thc  . othor  hands v. Iio might lie tempted to turn  informer. '  formation from some of thc sailors,  which led to tho arrest and conviction  of the murderers, who will dio by  the guillotine.  Atrocities of a similar kind oj'c  chronicled every your. Last summer  a fishing vessel returned to "St. Pierre from the Banks with the skipper a  raving maniac, and in irons, hc having, wliile in a drunken frenzy, run  amuck and murdered threo of his  crew.  Some timo beforo that a vessel was  lost and only two out of her twenty-  four men escaped, because the drunken skipper stood at the rail wilh a  loaded revolver and would not allow  the hands lo shorten sail. Tlio previous yenr a skipper was sentenced to  life imprisonment, at St. Pierre for  so ill-using two boys on hi.s boat that  tliey died.  But these convictions aro only isolated instances of punishment; in the  great .majority of cases the scoundrels escape. The reason for tliis is  that all these fishermen are borne on  tbo naval rolls and the fishing  ground is,patrolled by the warships,  which have summary powers of inquiry, and punishment. 'I'he crews  will not venture upon anything that  looks like .Insubordination unless for  tiro very best of causes.  HUMAN LIFE IS CIIF-AP  011 these French' banker.*?.' The death  roll of the (leet runs into hundreds  annually, antl it is assorted, by the  American, Canadian nrrd Newfoundland bankers that tho French skij>-  pprs, in 'many instances,, will not  trouble to scorch' for'drifta.way dory-  men, '.manifesting absolute indilfcreiice  to their fate.  Certain it is that the"'moist un seaworthy craft aro used irr the fishery  by tlrem, for .whon vessels are condemned by other nationalities, tlrey  can always bc sold at St. Pierre arid  arc outfitted for the Banks from thai  port. The consequence is that, when  the region is besot by storms the  losses to the French through" these  crazy craft" nnd their -rotten gear is  great.  Thus, .when ilie: hurricane which .devastated Galveston in tho autumn of  1000 swept up tiro Atlantic seaboard  and spent its last rage oil the Grand  Banks the Gloucester' escaped with the  loss of 0110 vessel���������the "Cora S.

A contribtilivo cause lo this loss  of lifo among the French' bankers is  the fact that intoxicating Htjuora arc  carried ui quantities among the .stores  of (hose French vessels nnd each man  is allowed lo have a dram of brandy  with every meal..

The mother  pig was liko tho old Woman who  lived in the shoe, for sho didn't  know what to do with so many, and ^  ns tho little pigs could not be put  to bed liko the old woman's children,  but kept wiggling about, some of  them'wero-in danger of not growing  as well-bred pigs arc supposed to fto.  Undo John carried two into tho  kitchen for a few dnys, thinking  .somo of tho others might die, when  there would bo room for those. .Sure  enough tho next morning ono .ot  those in the pen wns tlead nml .thoro  was room for one more.  Piggy, or Peggy us ho was called,  Iho one loft in the house, drank from  a bottle and slept and grew, in real  pig fashion. In a week ho ..began'  to notice things and would put his  fore foot on the top of tho box and  uso his littlo hoofs as a child would  its liands. By crooking them'tidbit,  ho Would hold on to the top of" tho  box and call for his milk. As ho  grow stronger and larger he .would  not stay in his box, so a. pen' wiis  mado near tho kitchen, that he  might be. fed often.  in a week or so ho began his old  trick of climbing up to look over his  fence, .hnd. would now and thon balance himself just right arid out of  his pen ho would como. .Strange, to  say, ho would never notico or associate with the other pigs, although  thoy capered about in his sight only  two or throe rods nway.  '.When .tho kitchen door was open hc  would scamper* in, and follow the  little girl who fed him, tlirough the  dining room, oven into the parlor,  chasing around the centre table,  grunting ns ho wcrrt, as full of fun ns  a dog or kitten. This waa. exceedingly funny now and then, but of  course had to be stopped, for Piggy  grew fast. When ho was six .weeks  old ho hail-to be sold. Wo have  often wondered if ho turned out just  as a common pig after all.  DANDY  ANU THE AA*E. _  Dandy was a lit tic dog who lived  with his mistress in a New Vork  apartment (lat up two flights of  stairs. I'hey indulged in tlio luxury  of iur open wood lire in cool weuthcr,  and Dandy, was the errand, boy .".who  brought wood from the cellar when  necessary.  One day Mrs. Kcolf, his mistress,  discovered she had iro wood, so she  said : "Dandy, go down cellar and  bring me a stick of wood." (Ho  usually brought one slick at a .time,  arrd travelled up and down stairs  until the woodbox was replenished;)  Away went Dandy os gay ns a  lark, but only to appear in a low  minutes with a very doleful nir and  without any wood.  "Why, Dandy," said Mrs. Scott,  "did you hear mo ?' I said bring up  somo wood."  Downstairs went tho little dog a  second time, and soon Mrs. Scott  heard n noise as of something being  pulled..-or dragged across the cellar  floor. Going herself to ..investigate,  she found the little dog at the" foot  oftho cellar stairs with the axe, the  handle of which avos in his "mouth,  and ho was trying his best to .carry  it up thc stairs to hor, to show hor  there was no Wood cut.  Who  can say flogs do not reason ?  This is iv true, story,  and may    bo .  vouched for.  MANCHUI.IA'S VALUE.

"We fire going  to   Lucknow,     Mr.  Itundnl,"  Ada   said;   ������������������where does    il  lie r*  He did not know; BeeUunpore was  not in the plan she bad given him.  His guide then told him that sbe  was wot sure of the locality herself,  but. was certain that it was considerably   north  of   Ueolunipore.  'linn information was most depression,, especially when a .sudden twinge  reminded Philip of liis recent wound.  Be looked with dismay at his companion's slender form,'conspicuous in  tbo white boy's dress, and tried to  calculate the distance from Lucknow  by the lime it had taken lire bearers  to convoy him in his palanquin to  ncoltuuporo. Alas '.   these     bearers  besides ' being swift and practiced  runners, knew the way and wero not  obliged to hide themselves. Tho adventure  wus a  desperate one.  "tt'o must make Hie best of the  darkness." Ada said, tranquilly at  this jtinrlui-p. "It will be well to  lie quiet during the day. You have  been very good and given lire no  trouble with questions and hesiuv-  t ions."  "I am at youi* service," lie replied,  simply:   '��������������� know that you  would not  'hnve   left  your  refuge   but   for    good  jvm son."  "flood reason indeed." she snid.  "You havo beard Gossanijee Bhoso  sneak of tho tyrannical moulvie who  caused tiro Hindoo temple lo be deeded.

Thpy travelled along in the darkness,  listening lo the cries of wild boasts  from the jungle they wore approaching, and talking but little: Philip regretting that he had led C'ossnmjee's  hospital roof without a word of  thanks or farewell, and speculating  on the trouble that might befall tho  bonoSL merchant on their account. It  was well that Ada had explained  nothing beforehand, ns in Hint enso  bo would have felt himself bound to  tell his good host of his intended  Hitting.  "Gossanijee will surely think me  ungrateful,"   ho said.  "No," his companion replied; "ho  will think that we found a favorable  opportunity for flight and will be  glad that we did" it before getting  him    into     trouble.

He looked  ovor the prospect before him, a rich  plain dotted with villages among  corn-fields, groves, and paddy fields,  with the eternal palm springing hero  and there; ho could sco no sign of a  largo city, or largo rivor. Beclam-  poro was left far behind out of sight.  Hc had no idea whero ho wus.  "Wc shall soon find tho road," hc  said in a reassuring voice. "Only  keep up your heart, Miss Mnynard."  Thoir frugal meal finished, and  their feet washed in a stream, the  travellers wont refreshed upon their  way toward a village, where Ada's  inquiries procured the disquieting information that they had boon diligently walking nwny from Lucknow  nil night, nnd must now retrace their  steps, though thoy were not obliged  to  pnss  Beelanipore  ngain.  Tho sun waxed warmer as they  walked, and both began to flag,  Philip oven limping, ns lho effort  told upon his woundvd leg. -  "It would have been nothing without nn adventure," Ada commented  joyously; "you didn't, suppose wo  woro going lo walk across to Lucknow as one walks across the fields  to church at home, Mr. Randal '!"  And ho certainly did not.  They hnd now reached a. ravine  formed by a cascade dashing from a  height: tbe steep sides were partly  clothed with wood, and as it was  evident that both wore tired oul,  thoy rested in this cool and plensnnt  retreat till tho sun's worst force  should ho expended. Here Philip  prepared a couch with leaves and undergrowth, but beforo ho had made  much     way    with     it   Ada,   who  had  him, so that he might, be unable to  furnish nny clue in caso of pursuit.

"Poor child !" Philip replied,  touched at the thought of hcr desolation, "������ wish I were ten men for  your sake."  The dawn  was  breaking now,     not  tho   sudden   splendor'   of   the   tropics,  but a. much less gradual  dawn   than  wo know in  these latitudes.   The air  grew   sharp,     the     darkness   seemed  deeper,   and  then   the  clouds   cleared  off,   the  east  glimmered  grayly    and  turned  to  white and  gold,  tho groat  sun   leapt   up   from   the  horizon   into  rv  sky  of  deep  glowing  orange;    the  warm  autumn, day was near.  Ada's  spirits had  been  rising  with  ,   tho sense  of freedom, nnd the slimu-  "'lus   of    action,   tho    terrible sorrow  nnd begun to discuss their plans,  suddenly became silent, her head  drooping on Irer breast. She had  fallen asleep, dead boat. She scarcely stirred when ho lifted her gently  from the earth und placed hcr on  the greenwood couch, himself sitting  near and fanning the insects oil with  u green bougii. Ho sat thus for  many hours,  battling with tho drow-  swers amid tears and smiles, and  ejaculations of sorrow and wonder,  to tho crashing of the grim siege-  symphony over-head.  The fugitives separated without  farewell; Ada was taken to her brother's wife, and Philip, with a keen  pang at a parting he felt to bo final,  at least as far as the closo and  pleasant companionship in tho last  days of suffering and danger was  concerned, went to the quarters assigned to his regiment, whero another equally ghastly but loss emotional scene of recognition, inquiry,  sad response, and half sorrowful welcome occurred, in tho midst of which  tho diabolical war music rose in a  deafening fortissimo; the wall of tho  temporal's* moss room crushed in, admitting a heavy exploding body,  men fell in various directions like so  many ninepins, tlio sound of smashing crockery and shattering furniture was mingled with groans, and  followed   by  silence  and  darkness.  Philip, stunned by tho noise, and  blinded by the thick dust-cloud, wondered that hc was still alive, and  supposed himself the only survivor of  the explosion; when (ho cloud began  to dissipate itself, a light was struck  and a voico quietly remarked :  "Their practice is improving. The  last onlv ploughed the compound a  bit."  "What T halo is' their confounded  slink-pots," said another voico, and  tho wholo assembly, the ollieers being then at dinner, wns soon on its  feet, nnd making uso of such furniture as was not smnshod, adapting  broken things and continuing tho repast, ns fur ns circumstances permitted, which wns not vory far-. The  body of a poor native servant, tho  only victim of the exploding shell,  was quietly removed without comment a fow minutes later.  Thon Philip heard of tho terrific  loss on September 25th, nnd during  the following week, when amputated  limbs lay in heaps in the hospital,  of tho continued fury of the siege  apparently undiminished numbers of  the e.\emy, who had rolled back for  iv  short   distance  round  thc  original  siness  that     threatened   to  overcome  a suit of Churria's clothes, aud fur- arid suspense of the last fow months  nished mo "with food and a littlo !**'as succeeded by a natural reaction  money.

"They arc used to it," lie replied,  his mind busy with more personal  matters.  "And I mn used lo being a wom-  nn," she returned, wilh a scornful  smile, "but 1 find (he moro I am  used to it  the less I like il."  "i'ou surely would not wish to bo  a      man '?"'

IlCVound a quiet circle of ladies in  shabby clothes, sitting in n veranda  to breathe a lilllo air in tbe comparative lull of (he iron tempest,  which usually occurred nftor sunset.  Faded, "haggard, and Jiuiguid these  ladies wero; one wore a bit of-crape  at hcr neck, the nearest approach to  widow's woods that she could procure; one was hushing a young fretful baby. 'This lady received him  very cordially, and thanked him for  his care of hor sister-in-law, while  Captain Maynard look the young  child and looked at it with .a wistful  tenderness.  "This littlo chap began life boldly," he observed, petting the tiniest  of arms.  "Ho ought to grew info a distinguished soldier," Philip replied glancing with iv sort of awed pity at tiro  frail creature, who had chosen such  a perilous lime for his first entrance  upon the world's stage, and doubting  if he would grow  into anything.  Then he heard tlio low clear voico  which had of late become so familial-, though not loss thrilling to  him, and almost feared to look up  (o Hie face lie had seen in srrch varied    aspects     when  Ada camo  on   lo  the_ver.ii.ncla. _i   "I am so glad lo see you," she  said. "1 was afraid you would not  have time to coine. You were in  hospital; J was; so sorry. 1 hear you  have boon on duty, I hope not too  soon."  Tho young widow's eye." clouded  when she caw Philip rise from the  block of wood ho wns sitting on to  sluiko his former comrade's hnnd;  sho hnd hoard tho story of thoir  wandering with n sort of lender envy  and tlio expression Ada's appearance  brought to Philip's face gave him u  momentary resemblance to hcr own  soldier slain during the siege. It  happened thnt Philip was chid irr a  shabby, stninod uniform that she  recognized too well; she had refused  (o sell it, but placed it nt the disposal of nnv oflicer who might need I  it.  Ada had now recovered hor natural  hue, and though unsuitably clad in  o rich colored silk gown given hor  by a lady who lived in the Itcsi-j  dency, nnd therefore hnd nil hcr  wardrobe with her wiion tho flight  thither look place, she rrrade n graceful nnd feminine figure in the din:  light. Hcr dark hair wns coiled  about hcr head like that of a Greek  statue, hcr eyes wore bright with  pleasant welcome; she curried a  sleeping child in her arms, a wusted,  ailing creature, yet no light, burden,  being  at  least   three  years  old. |  "Aria," her sister-in-law hii id, |  "can'l you put Willie to bed now V i  Ho has been in your arms the whole !  long day.      Ho  will wear you out."  "The 'moment I lay hiru down be  cries," she replied, gathering "him  closer' iir ber nrnis; "he is so good,  he lots mc work and wash the china  and do all sorts oT Hi high !"  Philip wonderoil iihnl "all sorts of  things" might mean; without asking  he took the child from her, aiul  quickly hushed the feeble moan it  Puifif ou Loins' moved;  then hc learnt  that its mother was too weak to  tend it, and trusted it entirely to  Ada.  Just then a slight sibilant noise,  followed by a crack, w'as heard, and  a small object bounded from the  chair on which Miss jUuynnrd was  sitting and struck her on thn side.  "Spent, fortunately," she said,  with a slight start, whilo a small  leaden ball rolled harmlessly to tho  ground, whence I'hilip took it as a  souvenir.  "The chair is none the worse,"  Captain Mnynard said, tranquilly  examining it; "it wns evidently. a  chance shot."  I'hilip, whoso low seat was one of  thoso wooden blocks fired from mortars at a high elevation into the  garrison, keenly realized the brief  and precarious tenure on which thoy  all held their lives; was it. worth  whilo lo think of the future in the  near faco of death ���������* Why not snatch  o little joy from these fleeting moments of peril ? Therefore he looked  irrto Ada's deep eyes, and listened to  the music of hor voice, while the  young widow watched thorn wilh a  sorrowful sympathy, and enjoyed a  brief hour of Paradise.  When ho returned to his post ho  felt veiy low, and fell to regret ling  that ho had no lidings of .lessio; ho  would givo the world for a home letter. And tired as he was by the  long day's duty, and weakened by  poor food and hardships, ho did not  sleep that night, brrt lay looking  through the darkness at iv race which  seemed to reproach hiin, ihe face  that of ull faces had looked most  kindly upon him all his life, the lined, worn face of Matthew Meado,  and remembered that good man's  constant and surprising lovo nnd  kindness, and the perfect trust he  had  seen  in his dying eyes.  In tho meantime the guns boomed  on; a ball might at any moment  crash into his room, ending all responsibility. ���������  gfejjgS*^  as  EFFECTS   OF   DRAINAGE.  KATION   F0K   CAUSES.

Comparatively few owners of rolling farms appreciate how great are  the actual losses in many years orr  rolling land which is not adequately  drained.

Tho child wa.s still in her arms; slro  begged a litllo milk for it. and  Philip was happy and proud to bc  able to furnish some.  A fow dnys later, when t he sick  nnd wounded and women nnd children were conveyed to Allahulmd. he  was one of thoir escort, and thus  saw hcr frequently during the fortnight's slow and diflleult jutirch,  which was necessarily onr* of great  hardship. A great crowd of sick  and feeble people and their necessary  baggage in bullock wagons anil pni-  anquins, with camels, elephants,-pedestrians, nml vehicles all mixed up  together in tho hot sun- and stifling  dust, involved much suffering and  unspeakable confusion. With scanty  nnd hastily organized commissariat,  the Maynards were'frequently .without food or tents for the night; and,  liko others, were dependent upon the  sometimes lawless proceedings of  male -friends.  "Brother Ilassamjee," Ada said oiro  night, when nfter long and weary  waiting ��������� ot their encampment he  brought them some loaves filched  from a commissariat wagon, "if you  wer-e in merry England 1 slrongly  suspoct you would sco more of i he  insido of a prison than you liked."  "Well, I begged this milk for- Willie,"  be replied, producing some.  "After all," Ada said, when she  had thanked him, "it is only a long-  picnic, but Mrs. Mnynard won't seo  it in that light."  "It would be morc amusing," poor  Mrs. Maynnrd observed, "if we could  be quite sure the enemy would rrol  atlnck us."  Philip was more than sorry .when  this novel picnic, camo to nn end,  and tho Lucknow people wero safely  packed in trains to Allahabad.

(he fact that they arc rolling and  therefore adequately drained by thc  means which nature provided." The  number of those who hold this view  regarding the draining of rolling  bind is so largo that the subject is  ono of fai'-reaching economic irn-  porLancc that is well worth careful  attention.  On many hillsides there are soft,  spongy places which aro frequently  (oo wet for cultivation, and which  lender tho lower land partinlly or  wholly unproductive, b.v means of  water which seeps from those spongy  places iind finds its way. usuully underground, toward the. drains. During the past, few seasons thousands  nnd thousands of acres-of undririried  hillside larrd have beerr u sourco of  untold loss to thoir owners. Adequate drainage is the remedy for  those heavy losses.  On hillsides, having a clay subsoil,  lho waler which fulls upon the surfaco will sink into the soil and bo  carried off underground, instead of  over thc surface, ir" an untlerriraiiv  bus been located in tho .subsoil at  tbo depth  of three or four foot.  When . t Iresc hillsides are drained  this surplus water- will be readily  carried off, with the result Hint the  soil will not become so thoroughly  sn turn ted, and .surface washing will,  iir a large measure, be prevented.  In ;v few years this well-drained  land will be greatly improved by the  accumulation of humus within the  surface soil; by lire circulation of air  among the soil particles nnd by tho  uctiou or the soil bacteria, whicli  rrow for tbo lirst time find within its  depths a suitable and congenial  home. On hillsides not fuliy  ��������� Iraincd tho surface soil permeable  by water is very (birr, nnd frequently underlaid by a stiff and almost  impervious clay. Tho result is that  when beating rains fall Ihey carry  more or less of tlris surface soil into  the valleys below.  This action annually removes a  considerable portion or" the most fertile soil, arrd is one of tho most^po-  tcnt factors in keeping these rolling  lands less productive than they  would bc under more rational management.  pounds of full milk per day is enough; the second week. li>" pounds.

Amazing    Amount  of Work  on.    a  Light  Diet.  In the war between Russia and  Japan thc problem of furnishing a  food supply will bo for both countries ono of the hardest to solve, and  will limit tho number of mon that  can be put into the field. In this,  says the author of "Japanese Physical Training," groat, advantago will,  lie with tiie little islanders because  of the amount of work thoy nro ablo  lo do on a small amount of food.  The Japanese aro naturally abstemious in the matter of eutirig. Itico  is the staple of-diet, with dried fish  as almost the only, moat, nad with  plenty of vegetables nnd fruit when  they can bo obtained.  An American traveller in Nagasaki  wa.s amazed one dny at seeing the  swiftness wilh which the Japanese  men and womon, l>oys and girls,  passed baskets of coal from lighter  to ship, chattering meanwhile as if  il wero but a picnic in which thoy  were engaged. When noon enrne and  tbey stopped for lunch hc went  nmong them and examined thoir provisions. One had an apple, a toma-  o.bout three heaping tablespoonfuls  of  boiled   rico. Another  had     two  tomatoes  and  a  tiny rice cako.      Of  iho  man  with   the  onion  the  traveller asked :  "Is thnt all you have?"  "Why,    yes,"  was    the    reply.    "I  would not caro to eat moro just now  for I have five hours' more work this  afternoon."  "Whnt did you oat for  breakfast?"  "Oh.   something very  fine;   a    bowl  of    rice      with   some  little  strips  of  dried  fish."  ���������'And what will you cat to-night,  when  work is done?"  "Probably same boiled fresh fish,  lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cucumbers."  Accustomed to such a light diet  from infancy, tho Japanese builds  great endurance on it. On the road  to Peking tho Jnpanose soldiers outmarched all tho other troops, and  nt the end of a day required only a  handful of rice and a kettle of boiling water to prepare a diet which  met every requirement.  tbo  HOUSE OF THE FUTURE.

MILITIA ROTTEN TO CORE.  Lord Dundonald lins done nuicli to  expose tlie  rottenness  of   the militia  department.     An   attack   upon    the  system by Col. Thompson, one of tlie  strongest  Liberal   supporters   in  the  Commons, opened  the eyes of  those  who imagined that tlie millions ot? additional expenditure incurred.in connection with the force and resulted in  '  improvement.   The opposition,  iu  its  criticism of the militia 'estimates, have  made it a rule to be more or less  lenient, realizing that it ivas in the interests of the country as a. whole to have.  an efficient '''militia,     But  tho attack  upon the .management of  the  militia  by the late General Officer Commanding has placed the matter in a different  light.    Jn the recent debates  on  the  3Iilitia bill, the department  has  been  shown to be   run   for   the   benefit   of  politicians and grafters.     When  supplies are needed public tenders are not  called for. The man with the pull gets  his own figures and the treasury  pays  the bills.     In   accordance   with   this  vicious system, a contract for carpentering at the  St."John  drill  hall  was  given to grocer. J. Smith.    Mr. Smith  was down for a contract.    It mattered  not that he was a grocer and had  not  the faintest idea as to how a drill hall  should be repaired.    He had a political   pull and  that  was   all   that the  Militia Department cared for.

To the corn pan y tiro total cost of  tliis vast it ret i.s just JjiijO.OOO, Hut  there is a provision regarding payment that calls for explanation. It is  in those tonus: "The department will  accept payment for these lands in cash  or script." A deposit of $50,00') was  put up, and it took the form of scrip.  "Scrip" has a history. -We buy out  the claims of the Indians and (he half-  breeds with scrip. In so doing the  government issues'a.document to each  claimant representing that on present  ation to the proper-(jirar-ter it will be  accepted as7 equivalent to .$210 paid  for the purchase of land from the  'Dominion.:' The recipients of the scrip  do not hold it, nor do they buy land  with it. They sell it to speculators at  a heavy discount and the speculators  retain it for land-purchasing purposes.  Mi: Sifton has issued a great deal of  scrip. He is interested iir the welfare  of:thu Indians and the halt-breeds and  is determined that they shall not'wano  scrip if they desire tohavo it. Other  politicians are equally concerned in  the condition of the recipients of  scrip. ��������� Westminster Columbian.  *l"lu' N\i. i Biatich Nimlio for Canada is  ovor the   Imperial   Hank,    Victoria,    I".

A Charming; Summer Resort,
Canada i.s rich ahove all other countries in the litiiiiliei'.'ind varyingI'hnruis
of lier holiday resorts. Ami Jjritish
Cohiiir'rria hns more than her fail'share
of the Dominion's charms.
There is one little spot in this   Province that is a perfect gerrr ill   its  cpiiet
way, hut tourists often pass hy ils very
doors without knowing ��� if it'-s exisloni'i'.
This is the Halcyon   Hot .Springs,  0*11
Aivow 1/rke. Tlie Halcyon Hot Springs
nre well worth a. visit say  those  whir
have  spent  a   vacation   tliere.      The
Standard, of Sandon, holds  the  same
opinion, aiul recently prrhlishcd in its
columns  the  following description of
the place:    "One of the most" delightful spots in Canada i-t the Halcyon Hot
Springs. Tourists from all pnrls of the
world hnvi-visited  this  health   resort
and pronounce  ils, writers  to  contain
the  greatest  healing  powers  of   any
similar springs 'mown. Halcyon is picturesquely situated at the font of lofty
mountains, which ahound wiih game,
and near the Arrow hike, which affords
good fishing.    The springs  are  hut a
few minutes walk from the  hotel  and
the water huhhles out of the solid rock
al   ahouc  130 degrees,   which   is  conveyed hy pipe  line  to  the  hotel  and
lunhs.    The  hotel  is  large and  commodious,    having accommodation   for
numerous yuesls.'     ln  addition, ihei e
are also   several   villas,   each   neatly
furnished   and   supplied   with spring
hiths, suitirhle for families or  private
parties.    The chief attraction  at   Halcyon are the haths.    These are  never
failing remedies for all  kidney, . liver,
stomach and hlood troubles and inflammatory rheumatism.    Mr. -MeN'aiigh'',
the courteous   manager,   informs   us
th.it in all cases of no cure of these ailments, there will be ho charge,   hut so
far not in a single  instance  have  the
waters proved inelfectual.    Tire  haths
consist of shower, steam and* plunge,
aud all impurities of the hotly aie withdrawn from the entire system  iir  the
sweating  process whicli follows.   The
waters are the best  remedies   procurable in all cases  of  ���'leading*'  in   the
mines.      The  hotel  is   conducted   on
strictly first-class' lines and JMtinagir
McNaught looks after till comforts tf
his guests. The resort is easy to reach,
b-ing only half a day's journey  from
_ S.mdon.    Two  steamboats  call   there
daily. Every business facility is handy.
The post, express and telegraph olflcer-
are located  in   the  large  hotel.     Although seeking quiet and re: t a per son
is not shut out from the outsii'e worl. ���
T.ie Associated  Press  dispatches   r.iv
received twice a day at  Halcyon, ard
a'l items of importance ara posted  up
in the reading room. Kor recuperation
thc Springs can't he beaten, ami to a 1
persons seeking health we would saj ���
go to Halcyon and get it.   The waters,
although beneficial at any tirrre, are i t
their best in summer, and  if you  an ���
looking for a place to spend a delight-
fill    vacation,   combine   health   with
pleasure by going to Halcyon and yc u
"will not regret it.   To go once,  rn canto go again.
TIu following extract fronr  tho report of A. McGill, E-��i.,   published   on
August 23, ISO'S, gives  an  idea  of  tire
health giving powers contained in the
���waters at_Lialcyon: :^	
Catching* Wild Goat
O, A. Chapman . and Iris partner, .1.
White, have accomplished wlrat is
considered almost impossible, the capturing of two young mouulairi goals
alive. This was done on White.river
in the Kooky mountains, after lots of
liaid work and dangerous climbing.
.Mr, ('liipiu.'in, iir speaking about their
siteres-i, said :
"II.   is   not   an   easy   task ��� bygany
means.    A mountain goat will start to
climb   up   lhe   mountain   side at Ihe
lirst   alarm, and   they   always slay a
long ways up so Unit. Ihey are pretty
free   from   interrupt ion.      It   is  only
possible to  capture  the kids, and that
has   to  be  done when they are only rt
few   days   old,   and yot loo young In
follow the mother in her wild rush for
the   highest   peaks.      AVe  figured on
this, and after a great deal of   patierrt
searching-'and   waiting, we aroused a
mother   and   her   kid.     But   after a
great struggle  we failed to catch the
kid.      Later   we  had better luck, Void
sjcuied two.      Hut in. doing it I went
over  places  that   I would not go over
again for all of Hiitish Columbia.   Hut
in  the  excitement and  desire to capture   lhe   goaf,   one   did  not stop lo
think of the danger.     We had considerable trouble with theni the lirst few
days, ns we could rrot get them to take
nourishment,   but   now  they will eat
out of my hand without any trouble.'*
Mr.  Chapman  does not. know what
he will   do   with   thorn, as hc has not
found   a   purchaser.      Owing   to  the
difiiculty   irr  capturing thcm, and tho
faci  that  very   few   have   ever been
taken   alive,   the   price is  very high,
and   Mr.   Chapman   and' his pai trior
may   realize   two   or   three thousand
dollars for fheliltle pets."���Fort Steele

Gold is  Where   You   Find   it.
Not many years ago Piof. 'Walton,
of. London, tlian whom fcliore is no
faii'Oi* man to the prospoctoi* and mine
owner, was shown .a, piece of yellow
porphyry containing visible specks of
nati ve gold. "Air!" said tho professor
"gold in yellow porphyry !" "Is that
a f.-ivoralile indication ?" asked the
simple man. "���Indication, iny hoy,
iiivcr mind the indication; when you
find a rock car rying gold you just go
a'lcad and dig orr it: a.s long as it lasts.'*
Thus laying down a rule that can he
profitably followed by prospectors
and iniueis.

���'Hot Springs at Arrow Luke. I
visited these remnrkrible springs on tire
24th nnd 20th April, 1S0O. There are
two important springs which unite to
form Uie supply of tlie baths at tlio
Halcyon hotel.
"The teni pern ture at the source is
121 F and the sulphurated hydrogen is
4.(107 pars per. million. The two sourcos
were examined separately and fonntl
to be identical in character, so thai
they undoubtedly have a common subterranean origin, (the so-called northern spring.) situated some little distance north of these. It has a temperature of 120 F. and contained 4,010
parts sulphuretted hydrogen per.
million. The following numbers wave
obtained on analysis of the water fronr
the Hot Springs proper:
Ohi'olinc, 20.0 per million; sulphuric
acid, .'{32.0 per mil,; lime, 82.0 per mil.;
magnesia, 21.0 per' mil.; silica, (12.0 pet-
mil.; total dissolved matter'only nt 100
C, 738.0 per mil.; on ignition, 070.0 per
mil.; loss, (IS.0.
The most remarkable features about
this water are tho high contents in
silica and the largo amount of lithium
present. 1 judge this from the spectroscopic investigations, Ln bo ten
times thc quantity present in the Hot.
Springs at. linnIV, and have no hesitation, in saying that this spring is
among the richest in lithium salts in
America���if not indeed tho very
richest iu this respect.
Kamloops Mining* Deal
K.vmlooi'S, July 22.���The owner's of

Tha Copper King has sent considerable ore to tlio Crofton smelter and is

As tho weather had been fine for  quite hall" nn hour, people had donned their light spring clothing and  lrnri sallie-i forth into Hyde Park,  feeling very spruce and merry. They  sallied om again, however-, witli undignified haste, when u sudden downpour of ruin came from nowhere in  particular���������for no one had noticed  any clouds���������transforming most, of  them into mere musses of drenched  misery   in   less  than   three  minutes.  Lily.     her     head     bent        forward  against  the  wind,     and    with     both  hands holding hcr wind-driven skirts,  started to run  towards Marble Arch.  Xot many yards hnd she gone   when  she collided with  Clayton, who    was  scurrying along towards Hydo    Park  Corner.  "I beg your pardon !" tpaid he.  Lily   stood   still,   her  back   to     thc  wind,  and    Irer     wavy,   golden     hair  blowing   prettily     over  her  shoulders  and framing her flushed  face.  "You !"  she  exclaimed.  Now    he  wa.s standing still,     too.  They! stared confusedly at each other,  neither knowing what to. say.  ,."!  thought,"   he ventured  at last,  "that I had nearly killed somebody.  I  sincerely hope   But  there,     I'm  forgetting the rain, and you've no  umbrella. Hi, there���������you witli the  tent ! I'll give you a sovereign for  it !"  This to a ragged old man, who,  nevertheless, seemed to bo comparatively happy, having a. mis-shapen  but. inviting umbrella.  "Pone '." said the old fellow, jumping eagerly at the bargain. "Tt  ain't much of a beauty for promenading, sir, and niobbe it ain't, quite  worth a  sovereign,  but���������"  "It is to me," said Clayton.  "Here's the yellow-boy. Now"���������turning once more to Lily���������"let's find a  more sheltered  place."  Beneath the trgly umbrella the  young couple hurried along towards  it huge tree that seemed to offer  some protection from wind and rain.  "How strange,*' remarked Clayton,  "that we should suddenly find ourselves journeying along together  again once more, just a.s we used to  do. as though we hnd never quarrelled ! At this moment I can scarcely realise that all is ovei;���������-���������"  "It* isn't !'..- .snapped the girl emphatically. "I mean, the rain isn't  over ,yet; but it soon, will-be, and���������  you really needn't, have '.bothered  about an. embrcllu."

"I'in a stranger here. Won't  please tell ine the way out of  Park V"  "Certainly,        madam.       Go  way,"   replied   Clayton   pointing  where.  .She bad scarcely disappeared when  the history-making umbrella, in response lo the invitation ol* a passing  gust, of wind, turned suddenly insido  out. Clayton. after a moment's  idisnray. reversed the ludicrous-looking object, and held il. over thenr Iiy  its apex, lire homely bulldog handle  standing on guard far above. Then  he repeated hi.s question to Lily���������the  only finest lon in the world at that  moment.  "Won't you forgive the past, Lily V  Won't you lot bygones be bygones,  anil  weal'  nry  ring once  more '.'"  The "invcrlcd bowl" of the umbrella was brought down so fnr over  their' heuds Ural, il completely hid  them from view, and for two foolish  young lover's the beating rain was  turned iirto a golden mist !  * * * * #  A policeman's finger tapped Clayton  sharply on the aim.  "You tan sit on the bench if  like. but you're not allowed  scratch   the  paint   by  standing."  The bewildered collide suddenly became -conscious that the sun wa.s  shining biighlly, anil rhat half a  dozen idlers stood there, in the walk,  gaping curiously al   them.

Die   Russian    Government employs   up discii'line and respect,  ns Lieuten-  you  to  DIPLUMATICJESPATCHES  HOW THEY ARE  SENT TO  THE  FOREIGN   OFFICES.  Telegraphed  in   Code,  the Key    to  Which  Is  in   the  Hands   of  Both  Ministers.  Just at the present time, when the* J-"1*  States of Europe are in an,unusual-' !,urg.  lv anxious condition of mind as the Secondly, where tho despatches or  result of the delicate situation which two foreign diplomats aro in the  has   arisen   through   the   war   iu    lhe|ha-idsol   the telegraph  aul lion lies at  codes of this description for all its  diplomatic messages to its own Ministers, and the Czar, who has a private code of his own, makes use of  it nearly overy tiny for communications to hi.s officers nnd Ministers  abroad. The    British    Government  also uses this class of code exclusively, and , so do tho German and  French.  T1TF. .1APANF.SF.  CO UK,  however, is of an unusually complicated character, and whilst it has  the merit of being, if possible, oven  more absolutely safe than the others,  it is rrot. so easy to decipher by  those in possession of the key. A  message whicli wns recently received  at the .7 a panose Legation in London  from the Foreign Odiee at Tokio  took o  whole day to translate.  There is a common understanding  among the different, nations as to  special facilities which nm to be accorded to the transmission of these  telegraphed despatches. Tin; rule is  that a Govern ment. message of any  country must be given precedence on  the wires over' all other telegrams  handed in, irrespective of tho time  when they were passed over the  counter. ' Thus, r'l* the Russian Minister in London wanted to telegraph  to the Czar���������as he is constantly doing in these days���������when his code message is handed in at the London  ollice it goes oft at once, even though  there are dozens of business and private messages waiting for their  turn. When it is extremely urgent  a. "pilot telegram" is sent in front  n il, I.he words "Clear- the line" being a warning to operators at tho  exchange stations all along the  route to get ready to pass the despatch on the second it reaches  them.  This rule as lo the precedence of  the diplomatic  telegram is subject to  ONLY  TWO   VARIATIONS.  The first is thnt the homo Government always has the preference over  any other, so thai- if the British  Government desired to telegraph ur-j  gently to .Japan its message would |  go before that sent by any oi the  loreign Ambassador's, even though  htinded in la Ier. In the same way,  if the Russian Government, were telegraphing lo its Ambassador' in London, the message would be dispatched in advance of any given in by  our    representalhc    at     St.   Peters-  Far Kast. trie telegraph wires are J "' same tune���������spy, Russian and .la-  kept constantlv busv with Ihe must' l'-mese messages being sent from  important and' delicate work Ihal is London���������tlio ordinary rule of prror-  ever ontrnsled     lo   lhem���������that   is    to''������.���������>*     llokls   S<"'* lo   son'������   people  say," in ���������lr.irif.mil ting the or'ici.il de-.- ,'1"-'s������ nughl appear to be very small  patches which are sent ir.mi ,,���������e; niali..rh* but, in tune of war a dn-  ForeignOfl.ee lo another and from j "cience of n f-w nir miles in receiving  the head Ministers of State lo Ara-]"'* transmitting special information  bnssaclors  abroad. j irruy  .'"���������--ilutelv ' Poriant   events.���������London   Tit-Kits.

Tho London, England, Express has  a touching story of the murder of  Mrs. Rodgers by hor liftcen-year-old  son:  "1 did it for Queenio's sake. Shu  could not be brought up to the life  we havo led for the last few years."  This is thu explanation offered by  Frank Rodgers, the fifteen-year-old  boy who is charged with shooting his  mother at the Gables, Jleldreth, Cambridgeshire, on Tuesday night.  Tho Ind appeared before the "Mel-  botu-n magistrates. Unflinchingly ho  weirt through the two ordeals of the  day���������tlio police court hearing," which  ended in a week's remand in custody,  and the inquest, which ended in the  finding by tho coroner's jury of a  verdict of "Wilful murder" against  him.  Any mother in tlie land might bo  proud to have such a son as he scorned. Tall, intelligent, frank, well-  built, well-dressed, gentle in manner,  lie looked just a typical public school  boy. Out of a Trank face his largo  brown eyes looked straight ut the  magistrates.  He was dressed in a neat blacjj  rct-rer suit, and rested his steady hand  upon the prisoners' rail, and gazed  in a self-possessed way at the three  policemen who stood about hiin, and  at thovWiIncases wiio unfolded their  tale of murder against hiru.  FATHER AND SON.  He was driven in a closed carriage  to tho police court through the village, which was all pretty gables and  thatched cottages and plum blossom.  His father, Willinni Alexander Rodgers, who is a London solicitor, soon  afterwards stepped from a carriage  and started to walk up the steps  across the green plot towards tho  court. Midway he caught sight of  his bright, hundsomo boy behind the  iron bars of the guard room, and  w,as momentarily unnerved.  While evidence was being given  against his boy, Mr. Rodgers sat at  the back of the court, his head bowed upon his hand. Ever and anon  he raised his oyes nnd gazed at the  boy, tho magistrates, the policemen,  and the surroundings of court, as if  ho could not bring himself to understand the full meaning of the scene.  Then again ho buried his face in his  hands.  The witnesses to the magistrates at  tho compact village of Melbourn in  the morning, aird to tho coroner nt.  quaint, straggling Mildrclh in the  afternoon, unfolded a story which  the most daring novelist would have  hesitated to put into his wildest'  welding of human  character.  The sum of it all was that young  Frank Rodgers, a good son and a;  fond brother-, shuddering at > the  thought of his tender little seven-  year-old sister, Quoenic, growing up  to seo the dissipating life which his  mother was leading, borrowed his  brother's revolver, and while his older sister was playing tho piano, shot  i>';s mother dead.  THE SAI1 SECR10T.  Miss Winifred Rodgers, a sweet  young girl, charmingly attired in a  small grey jacket with black hat and  skirt, giving in clear tones that only  faltered once cr twice, tho slory of  Tuesday night, told tho coroner of  her conversation witli Frank after the  murder.  "Why did you do it?" sho asked  hiin.  "I did it for Queenio's sake.        She  could  not bo brought up  to the   life  we nave led  for tho last few years."  "And who is Queenie?" asked      the  coroner at this jioint.  "Queoiiie  is my little sislir."  "And did you  understand  what     lie  meant when he .'-poke of having done  it for her sake?"  "Yes���������yes,  I  understood."  Tliere was a dead silence for a moment, broken only by the rumble of a  farmer's wagon in the lane and     tlie  ceaseless    song of  the  birds  in     the  bright sunshine.  "Woll, now," said the coroner coax-  ingly, "will you tell tire jury what it  meant?"  "The last few years���������the last few-  years have been \lt,v rrnliaTiT>yT''-,l'lio~  girl's voice faltered, and she was iir  tears.  "From what reason?" asked the  coroner'. "A\hy have they been unhappy?"  "Ilocause my-mother has given wny  lo drink."  FAST ffllBRAPMC WORK  SIXTY   WORDS    A   MINUTE  THE P.ECORD.  I������Ir.  IS  Andrew  ,   Carnegie's     Grcstt  Interest in the Railway  Operators.  Many years ago, when he counted  his fortuno by cents instead of by  millions, Mr. Andrew Carnegie was tv  telegraphist iri" orre of the big 'American cities. He was an expert operator, and always evinced the keenest  interest in the friendly compel iI ions  which occasionally took place " between rival telegraphists throughout  tho country, arrd there wero fow who  could beat hiru nt despatching or  receiving  a-message.  Ho is said to have declared at this  early period that if ever he becanio  a rich man ho would encourage both'  speed and accuracy in telegraphy by  founding a prize whicli should bo  fought for by. the best operators in  tho country. In fulfilment of that  promise ho inaugurated twenty years  ago, the Carnegie Hold Medal valued ut S500, together with n cash  prizo of .$300, which should bo  awarded to tho operator who proved  himself to be the best telegraphist of  tlio year. Mr. Carnegie still continues to take the keenest interest in  tho affair, anil, whenever possible, is  present at tho minimi meeting of  competitive telegraphists.  SOME FAST WORK.  Tho contest which always attracts  widespread interest among the general public ns woll as Hiose connected with telegraphy, was held last  yenr at the National -Export. Exposition Building. Philadelphia, when  n great number of operators from  all parts of tho States presented  themselves ns claimants for the Carnegie medal. Mr. F. M. McClintic.  of Pallas, Texas, who won lire medal  the previous year, was present to  defend his title, brrt as it turned  out he wns badly beaten, though his  performance of J002 still remains a  remarkable one. Mr. McClintic then  succeeded irr sending 51 7 \\oids iir ten  minutes, and receiving 500 words in  the same space of timo���������a marvellous performance which can, perhaps, bo better appreciated by those  who aro familiar with tho science of  telegraphy.  Tho contests, which look place on.  tho 30th and 31st October la.st, attracted more than tho ordinary number of interested spectators, and it  had been hoped that Mr. Edison  would have bcon present, but as ho  was not in the best of health he sont  liis regrets, together witli a substantial contribution to tlie prizo  fund.

Wherr such a. message i.s received  the decipher first divides tho numerals into groups of five and then sets  to work upon t.herrr with the. code  dictionary. In the latter all tiro  different arrangements aro given in  progressive order, beginning at,  "00001" nnd going on to "00090,"  and tho solution to any group may  thus be found in ten seconds, or as  quickly a.s a. word could be. found in  an ordinary dictionary.  Of course, the diplomat, who writes  the despatch in the first, instance has i  the   counter-part   of   this   flic.tionarv  that  is,  one  in  which nil   the    words! a good   thrashing,  you  swine!  to resign, or have been placed on  half-pay.  Here is another incident, which  shows to what a pitiful state of demoralization tl.e German military service must havo sunk in this garrison  town  of  Forbech:  " 'What hove I ordered you to do,  you swine?' the lieutenant roared at  his servant.  " 'That f should let no one in tin-  announced,' he answered timidly. 'Jlut  the woman pushed by me. and I could  not  prevent her entering.'  " 'Take your     carcase  away,     you  lazy brute!

Tho number of possible arrangements is infinitely greater than tlie  words to be found in any language,  and lest a key should at'any time  get into the wrong hands the code  figures are constantly changed.  Then he struck Roese in tlie face  with bolh hands, opened tlie. door,  and licked him out."

He identified the  body as that of his wife, (leorgina,  Rodgov������������������*. and gave her ugo ns forty-  two years.  "I was away when this occurred',"  lie said quietly.  Sir. F. Low, K.C 'appeared to  watch the inquiry for tiro .father, anil  on the lad's behalf, too, and he told  the coroner- that the family would  throw further light upon the case at  a later stage, but that .at present  they preferred to keep silent.  Dr. Octavius Roberts Eniiion stated  that when called'to tho Cables he  found Mrs. Rodgers dead in the. hall,  witli a wound in her neck. The bullet  liad passed in til the left side nnd out  ill the right, and liad struck the  mantelpiece; and the wall. When the  bullet was produced in'court a tiny  piece of the wallpaper was still adhering to it.       ���������  There ���������were traces of blood from an  armchair in which Miss Winifred Rodgers had left lier mother sitting after  dinner to the liall whore she fell and  died.  Even after the death young Frank  was solicitous about liis mother, for  he asked Dr. Ennion:  "Did my mother suffer any pain?"  The doctor did not tell the court  wljat liis answer was, if any, but he  slated that thero were no other marks  of violence about the body.

The contest, from  its inauguration, has consisted of  sending and receiving twenty-five average messages nnd 500 words of  press matter, and lust year was no  exception to the rule.  The contest for tho Carnegie medal  took place on the second day, the  competitors being twelve in number.  Mr. Gibson, who was first favorite  in the betting, succeeded in despatching his twcnly-fivo messages in 13  minutes 4.9 seconds with only ono  error. His 500 words of press mat-  tor he despatched in 9 minutes wilh  two errors. In receiving n like  number of messages he made five  errors, but his press matter was absolutely perfect.  Mr. McClintic was neither so (prick  nor so accurate in despatching his  messages, taking 14 minutes 10 seconds, while his number of mistakes  amounted to five.

Mr. William M.

Suitable diet, i.s considered ns important a fuctor in the treatment of  diabetes ns is the administration of  flings. The fact has been for some  timo recognized by tho medical profession, says the Medical Record,  that abstinence from all articles of  food which.may bo converted into  glucose, causes iv markctl decrease in  tho quantity of glucose in a diabetic  Pitt/out's, utrliio, and in every respect  tends t-> nn improvement in the condition ol the majority, ot those  nlllictcd  wilh diabetes.  Sir >Inines Sawyer, of I'.irminghum  in tho .British Medical Journal,  points out that until the researches  of Mosse tu*o years ago, it was thc  therapeutic rule, to withhold potato:::, in si'tcharinc diabetes. "Ailo-si's  researches led liim to conclude that  p.?..atocs, far from being harmful,  form a useful and benetlciitl fcod in  glycosuria, nnd that they are capable  of being substituted for ordinary  when ten bread in daily proportions  sufiicient to maintain the alimentary  ratio���������that is to say, in the proportion of two and oi'v-hnlf to three of  potatoes for one of bread. Mosse  found that a daily ingestion of potatoes iii cpinntities of from J 000  to 3500 grams caused, roughly, from  2 pounds to 3 pounds avoirdupois  diminution   of  tlio  glycosuria,     qirick  . relief of thirst, and general improvement in the patient. The reason for  thi.s beneficial action of potatoes in  the feeding of diabetic persons is,  according -to Mosse, because thc  salts contained in potatoes are chiefly those of potash, and potash exerts a retarding influence on the progress'of diabetes.  Sir James Sawyer states that his  own.experience in practice during thc  past two years is confirmatory of  Mosse's  conclusions,  and  hc goes  on  -lo declare that in his opiraon the  beneficial results of Mosse's discovery and  teaching    as  to  the. use    of  - potatoes as a food in diabetes might  well be. carried much further in tho  dietetics of diabetics, than in merely  thc free allowance of properly cooked  potatoes in a dietary. The writer  proposes that the therapeutic difficulty as to the prohibition of ordinary bread for a diabetic may be met  advantageously by making bread,  cakes, and biscuits for diabetics by  using the "flour" of properly cooked  potatoes instead of- the flour of  grain. Sawyer's dietary for diabetics is as follows : Slay cat. butcher's  meat of ali kinds, excepting liver,  pork, ham, bacon, poultry, game,  potatoes steamed in their "skins."  Fish. oysters, crabs, lobsters, animal soups, not thickened excepting  by potatoes, mutton broth, beef-tea.  Drnn and potato bread or biscuits,  potato cakes, eggs, cream, butter  cheese, greens, watercress, mustard  and cress, lettuce, mushrooms, nuts,  jelly or cuslnrd, unsweetened.  Mny not cat any bread or biscuits  but those made of bran and potato,  sugar, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower,-     carrots,     parsnips,     French  - beans, peas, turnips, arrow root,  macraoni, rice, sago, tapioca, -vermicelli, pastry, excepting potato  cakes, puddings, fruit, fresh and preserved.  May drink water, tea, coffee, soda-  water, claret, hock, spirits and water,* unsweetened: bitter ale, very  sparingly; milk, very sparingly.  May not drink' cocoa, cholate,  champagne, porter, stout, homemade wines, liquors, cider', sweet  wines and ale.  At one time the diabetic was greatly restricted in diet, but owing to  the now views, promulgated first by  Mosso, the sufferer froni tho disease  hns a wide choise of food and need  rro longer live a lifo of rigid self-  deiiinl. This more generous regime  of living is to his physical advantage.  DESPONDENT  WOMEN".  Find Hew Health in the.Use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.  A fow years ngo Mrs. James R.

'Po eat when not  hungry is to cat without relish, and  ���������food-taken -without���������relish���������is-.���������worse  than wasted. Without relish tho  salivary glands do not act, the gastric fluids arc not freely secreted,  and tho best of foods will not bo  digested. Many perfectly harmless  dishes are severely condemned for no  other reason than tliey * wero eaten  pci-fcnclorily and without relish and  duo insalivation.  Hunger makes tlie plainest foods  enjoyable. Jt causes vigorous secretion and outpouring of all the digestive fluids���������the sources of plynlin,  pepsin, trypsin, etc., without a "plentiful supply of whicli no foods can bo  perfectly digested.  Wait for an appetite if it takes a  week. 'Fasting is one of the saving  graces. ,lt has a spiritual significance only ythrougli its great physical and physiologic importance. If  breakfast is a bore or lunch "a nmt-  .tei; of indifference cut one. or, both  "of tliem-out. Wait for distinct and  unmistakable hunger���������and therr, eat  slowly. .

At last it lias been discovered how  to make a. military omelet without  breaking the eggs. Hereafter war  mny be bloodless; ship's companies,  battalions, whole armies may bc placed hors-de-combat, but only temporarily. In tho middle of the wildest  charge squadrons of cavalry may bo  reduced from a stato of heroic fury  to beatific anaesthesia, and may instantly be precipitated, in most regular formation, into peaceful slumber.  In a word, a Hungarian genius has  invented a shell which, on bursting,  liberates a gas warranted to stupefy-  all who breathe it without causing  any permanent or serious effect.  When such a soporific shell bursts  and awak'c, perhaps, to find themselves prisoners  in  a hostile port.  Lot a number of such shell explode  ovor a fortress and not the fortress  but the garrison will fall���������into coma.  Scientifically speaking, it is entirely'possible that this gas-charged shell  will do all that its inventor claims.  He is now in communication witli the  Japanese government, so it is not  improbable that Tort Arthur and  Vladivostok may bo as quiet soon as  tlie palace ot tlie Sleeping Deauty.  The inventor's Hungarian-hatred of  Russia, dating back to 1848, prevented him from approaching the  czar, to whose, pacific ideas such a  humane shell would strongly appeal.  Of course, such a shell would revolutionize warfare. Tho hospital  corps would become the most important branch of the service, and  would need to be enormously increased in order that prostrated combatants could be removed from the field  and' restored to consciousness.  Thc next Hague convention would  have to agree that all who wero asphyxiated by this gas should consider  themselves dead until tho war ended.  And what would happen whon opposing artilleries employed tho won-  derfui shell? Each side would surely i  increase the charges of gas until  somo would bo killed by an overdose  of it. . Thus tho shell's beneficent purposo would bo defeated.-  FOR JAPANESE SOLDIERS.  Rico and dried fish is tho uniform  food of the Japanese army irr campaigning times.

The Inconvenience, the havoc,  arrd alarm it. has created by appearing in hungry hordes and overrunning the humus of men in nil parts of  tire country, is n tale that has boon  told often enough during recent  months.'  What can be said on behalf of the  most universally animal on lire face  of tho earth v lie i.s an agile and  graceful creature, skilful in many  ways, full of resources, intelligent, a  useful scavenger when he can bo kept  to thnt employment, full of complacent happiness, and desperately  plucky. Whon living undisturbed in  his own haunts tho rat is an nlfec-  tionate parent and comrade. Catch  sight of n rut sitting at peace on  hi.s haunches, smoothing his whiskers  nnd il i.s a pretty spectacle. He is  said to bo cleanly in his personal  habits, although ho is always at  homo in the sowers.  His savago disposition is without  doubt the result of the centuries of  hunting of which he has been "thc  victim. Ho was never popular, and  has, therefore, always boon hunted.  Ono wonder's what, hc might have  heen had ho ever been given -a chance.  IMPORTED RAT.  It is tlio brown rat which plagues  England to-day. Tho old English  blnck rat, a smaller and more elegant rodent, far less fierce and harmful, has been almost annihilated by.  his own brother.  The black rat was introduced into  England in tho middle ages, coming  from the east In ships. He is the  ancestor of all the fancy rats kept  largely now as pets. Thc brown rat  also camo from the oast���������from western Chinn, to be precise. He gradually spread over Europe, and in  17!*0 lie first appeared in England,  having been conveyed on ships sailing from the Baltic. He has now  over-run Great Britain* nnd boen  taken further westward by ships to  America, irr. parts of which'continent  lie abounds by the million. On one  Jamaica sugar plantation 30,000  rats have been destroyed in a year.  OMNIVOROUS DIET.  A-rat's diet is omnivorous. 'Nothing seems to come ' amiss to him.  Possibly this is-thc result of-his being continually hunted from place  to placo and time and again driven  by stress of hunger to eat anything  that his teeth can surmount. He is  always working havoc in game plantations and poultry farms, destroying eggs, and eating the young-  birds. Ho has been known to gnaw  holes in the bodies of fat pigs, and  destroy the soles of elephants' feet.  Tho London docks have -always  been a favorite haunt of the rodents.  Over 5,000 have been killed in a  month by the official rat-catcher.  Formerly these rots were taken out  alive and sold to dog owners for  sporting purposes. Happily this has  now  been  stopped.  The carcases of these rats have  boon found to contain germs of bubonic plague. A " penalty of 510  hangs ovcr the head of any person  who takes away a live rat. The  carcases are collected every morning  and'cremated on the quayside in the  presence of an  official.  HARD  FIGHTERS.  The  sewers    of   London  were  onco  swarming with the rodents, and   thc  sewer men were in thc habit of making large   incomes   by catching,   the  rats  and     selling   them for  sporting  purposes,at 75 cents a dozen.     Many  a grim encounter did these men havc_  in  blind underground passages   when"  several  rats were    brought to     bay,  nnd  it  required  no  small  amount  of  pluck to seize tho savage vermin.  When driven to extremity there is  scarcely a 'fiercer animal existing  than the brown rat. He is also a  serious danger, for a-bite from the  garbago-poisonc-d teeth of a rat has  often meant death within a few  hours. A desperate rat will sometimes daunt tlie stoutest bull-terrier,  and many a splendid dog has died  from a rat bite.  ���������In-severe -extremity��������� a- hunted���������rat-  will-    sham    death,    and bc left    for  dead  in  the gutter.      But,  when   all  is quiet, he will recover himself,   and  move awny ns fast ns possible.  Tlio very worst that a rat can do  is in attacking human beings.  Tramps lying by the roadside or in  brick-yards in country places, have  been killed by thc rodents, and- only  too often havo hungry-pressed rats  attacked infants in their cradles,  sometimes killing them.  SOME GOOD POINTS.  As for the good in him, there arc  many true stories. His intelligence  has been seen often. Perhaps the  host-known instance is that of thc  rats which, robbing a poultry yard,  could conceive of no better way of  carrying off the eggs than by. getting one of their number to lie on his  back and. clasp the eggs on his sto-  mach. . -.Then several rats pulled  their .recumbent brother's tail, while  others pushed his. shoulders. Thus  egg after egg* was safely hidden in  their, burrow.  A rat has been known to cross a  swollen torrent in Scotland seated"  on a swan's bnck. Other rats havo  made friends with dogs, and fed  often from the same plattnr. Whon  the dogs were absent, they would  never feed, knowing that the presence of,tl*.eir canine friends meant  safety.  '  Although when driven desperate  with hunger they will decour one another, in time of plenty their affection is nlmost human.  A Sussex clergyman has told how  he saw a number of rats migrating  from one district to another, and in  thc middle of lhe company an old  blind rat with a twig iir his mouth,  by whicli he was being safely led by  a* younger rodent. Instances of  rats lending blind comrades by . the  cars to feeding places. and-placing  food close to their muzzles, have  been observed more than once, This  is more than many human beings  will do for'their weaker brethren.   ���������  A  COMPLETE  CURE  FOR BLADDER TROUBLES IN DODD'S  KIDNEY PILLS.

Somo of the finest and most valuable collections of autographs in thc  world lie in no less prosaic places  than tho safes of old-established  banking firms, tho signatures in question being either in the form of receipts for money or thoso mado in  special books for guidance and purposes of comparison at the banks in  qrrostion.  In at least two cases in London  those autographs are absolutely priceless, for thoy extend back for nearly  200 years, ancl they comprise specimens of the handwriting of c\cry  British monarch during tliat timo, oi  many foreign potentates, ancl of nearly every distinguished man, whether  in war, commerce, statesmanship or  art. For purposes of comparison even now theso ��������� old-time bank autographs aro said to bc absolutely invaluable, for it must bo recollected  that these signatures are tlie very  private and, so to say; hall-marked  autographs of their writers, having  attached to them secret marks known  "only to the writer nnd to the bank;  and wlien saleroom forgeries in tho  way of autographs are offered now,  these often faded writings arc as  precious as when they were made, to  obviate bank forgeries, in times long  past.  Only quite recently, a small tradesman of Portsmouth happened to look  through, a lot. of what he had always  been told by his parents was old lumber. Tin's tradesman's great-grandfather had been a purser on various  British war vessels during the Napoleonic wars, one of the ships of which  he sorved^having fought at Trafalgar  with himself aboard as purser. Most  of the old lumber in question was  found to relate to this ancestor, and  among it were scores of receipts and  other documents written by Nelson,  Collingwood and many other naval  heroes of those days. One particular  batch of tliis old lumber was sold  within a few wecE's of its discovery  for ������50.

Tho hippopotamus is not generally  credited with great intellectual power, but it seems from tho following  incident that" somewhere in that  mass of flesh and fat resides a brain  prompt to act when necessity demands. For several weeks tho wonder" nnd .delight of nn Knglish zoological park was a baby hippopotamus,  which was named Guy Fnwkos because ils birthday fell upon thc fifth  of November. . .       .   Tho  young  hippoplfumrs  about tho size of a bncon pig, of a  pinkish slate-color, nnd ns playful ns  u kitten. It was only thrcii days  old when, ns tho superintendent of  the "zoo" was watching tho little  fellow's antics, it dived to the bottom and did not rise. The grown  animals never remain under water  much, longer than three minutes; so  as time went on nnd no baby reappeared tlie superintendent became  alarmed.  When twenty minutes had elapsed  he gave orders that the water bo  drawn from the tank to recover tho  body of what ho felt sure was a dead  baby hippopotamus. As the plug  was being removed young Guy  Fawkes appeared, shaking liis funny  little horse-like cars, and wearing a  hippopotamic grin, which seemed to  say, "Don't be frightened;-I'm all  right. You don't know all about  me yet." The young animals have  a great power of remaining under  wnter, which they lose as thoy increase in years.  Tho next timo baby went, to the  bottom, howevor, __ivas not so much  of a joke. Ho tried to climb up tho  side of the tank in which there were  no stops. He fell back again and  again, until ho sunk exhausted. The  keepers were gathered about tho tank  in great anxiety, but unable to help.  The mother, however, hurried to her  baby with all hcr clumsy haste. She  dived, put her broad nose under Guy  Fawkes, shoveled him up, nnd held  him above the surface until he had  recovered his breath and was rested.  It was nearly half an hour beforo  the little fellow was able to mako  another attempt. Then ho made a  huge effort, Jlnma -Hippopotamus  gavo a big shove with her head, and  Master Guy Fawkes clambered triumphantly up the side of tho tank.   1   Beware of Ointments for Caiarrh  that Contain Msrcui-y.  as mercury will surely destroy tho sense  of smell and completely derange tiro  whole system when entering it through  tho mucous surfuccs.
