The Minister of Labour's Tactics in regard to Alien Legislation Exposed���������Facts From  Official Records.  During   tlie   session    of   1903,    Mr.  Hughes' (North  Victoria)  and others,  called the attention of the Postmaster  General  and   Minister   of  Labour, to  tho   fact   that scores of aliens   were  supplanting   British   subjects on  the  surveys  of  the  Grand Trunk Paciiic,  in the" North West.    The Minister was  deaf   to   any   representations   or any  appeals.      Ultimately  on   tlie 10th ol  April,   1001,   Lhert!   was   a movement  upon thc  part of the government.    It  was stated and  not contradicted, that  in January  1001, the Canadian Association   ol*   Civil   Engineers,    wrote   to  dilferent   members   of   the     cabinet,  oit'ering   proof   that they were being  superseded   by-Aliens.    Nothing was  done: Sir "William   was as silent ns the  grave: he could not al't'ord to interfere  with   the   Grand Trunk Paciiic plans.  Finally, a   letter  was  written  to Mr.  I lays/who informed thelVeiniet that  lo some extent the allegation was true,  but   not   more   than   four or lhe per  cent of such   employees' were citizens  of  the   United     States.      With   this  knowledge on his desk did Sir William  Mulock   put tlie law n force?    Perish  the thought!    Further delay was compassed  hy  the appointment of Judge  Winchester���������a   very painstaking and  diplomatic coinmissionei', who unveiled  a state of affairs, absolutely aggravating.      Correspondence   was   found in  which Canadians  were, represented as  "no   good,'*   as   incompetent   and  as  ignorant   "natives,"   being   jeered at  and sneered at  by  these foreign officials, whose   source   of existence was  supplied   by   the Dominion Treasury.  Not until   ih'. R. L. Borden, leader of  tbe Opposition  gave  notice nf motion  (2.5th   April) for   copies of   all letters,  petitions,  documents,  etc., complaining or protesting against the employment of aliens as engineers iii railway  surveying on construction on tho line  of the National Transcontinental Hail-  way, did  Ministers appear to move at  .���������ill.'    On   March 22nd" Mr. Puttee, ol"  Winnipeg,had called the government's  attention to Alien survey parlies working on   the  Grand Trunk Pacific; but  he-received no satisfaction on'the 27th  of April, Mr.** Ralph Smith joined Mr.'  Borden's crusade aud asked for a government   return of   "American aliens  employed on the GrandTrunk Paciiic."  Finally   the   government succumbed.  It   was   found that all the cliief positions   weie   held   by   citizens   of the  United States, at least 35 in  number.  Most of these were allowed to silently  cross   the   borders;   others   were   deported.  The noticeable and significant  fact   is,   that   although   Sir, William  Mulock knew  the alien law was beirg  outraged,   he     made   no   movement,  until public sentiment forced his hand,  unci yet he is the friend   of   Canadian  organized labor!  On the 25th of May, 1001 '(sec votes  and proceedings) in order to protect  Canadian engineers and others against  this alien invasion, as well as test the  sincerity of so-called Liberals, Mr.  Clare, South Waterloo moved :  'That in making surveys for the  Grand Trunk Paciiic preference should  be given to British subjects by birth or  naturalization."'  Mr. Put tee made an earnest .ippeal  in favour of this amendment, but it  availed not, for a solid phalanx of  government supporters voted it down.  The government hud claimed that  they did riot know about the alien  grievance. "Did not want to know"  was proved by the f.ict that when they  did know, they voted against any  parliamentaj.y_declai'alion.that_British  subjects should have preference in  their own country.  Sir William Mulock member was  obliged, however, to introduce 'an  amended aliens bill, (No. 102). When  emerging from the Commons it had  not many substantial features left;  liaving been put through its stages at  snail's pace; stranger still it did not  reach the Senate until the last hours  of an expiring parliament. Ministers  bad bad five months to prepare and  put through remedial legislations, so  far as the interests of labor demanded;  but the socond reading of Bill No. 102  was delayed until the 5th of August,  a 'system of procrastination being resorted to; consequently the aliens  restriction measure did not reach the  upper House until the Oth of August,  or get a second reading until the 10th  of August, during the morning session  and parliament was to prorogue at I  o'clock that DAY. Then; the legal  friends of the government got their  innings aud Mr. Kerr (Toronto) with  an oily, unctuousness, almost betraying his design, proeeded to talk; Senator Clorah (usually friendly to labor).  Senator Watson and Senator Dan-  durand, each spoke his piece, the latter  declaring that the bantling was not  an aliens bill but an "omnibus bill,"  adding, "the bill will go over for six  months." And the murdered offspring  to which Sir William Mulock h;.d  vouchsafed intellectual hospitaly, perished there, and then.   ;.  To be sure the Senate had that day  voted over $77,000,000 without comment; to be sure, the government had  they been jn earnest, might liaye seen  that the alien bill was sent to the  Senate one week earlier, or that suspension of rules been moved; hut no,  Ministers got the supplies for their  departments, and now all they are  looking for is the votes of their dupse.  To-day, Sir William Mulock's thumb  is not very far from the tip of his nose.  Official records prove  that Conser-  The Fall Assizes  A sitting of the Supreme Court was  held at Kevelstoke on Monday, the  10th instant, Hon. JMr. Justice Duff  presiding. There was only one case  on the list, a charge of indecent assault  preferred against Thomas Skinner.  The grand jury examined tho Crown  witnesses and compared their evidence  with the statements made befoie the  magistrate in the preliminary hearing  and promptly returned "No Bill" and  Mr. Skinner was discharged.  Tho whole matter appears to have  been the outcome of a family rowand  the action of the Grand Jury met with  commendation on all sides. The  practice of rushing into court to wash  dirty linen ought to be discouraged as  was done in this case. .  JT. M. Scott,' acted for thc. prosecution and G. S. McCarter represented  the accused.    ���������*'������������������'.:'���������'  In their presentment to His Lordship, the grand jury bade him heartily  welcome, on this the occasion of his  firs-t ollicial visit to Revelstoke. They  pointed out the urgent need of a new  gaol, drawing His Lordship's attention  to the old Ing shack, which had been  used as a lock-up for the past 20 years,  stating tliat it was a disgrace to the  city and province and emphasizing  the necessity of the immediate construction of a new gaol in a more  desirable locality. They also pointed  out tlie disgraceful state" of the grounds  surrounding the Court House, that  they were not in keeping with the  dignity of the building, and suggested  improving same by laying out with  trees, etc.  (Concluded ou Paee ������),  Nomination Day Fixed for Nov.  ist. Polling Takes Place on  November 22nd��������� Galliher a  Political Coward.  At last the date has been fixed for  the contest in Kootenay electoral district, Tuesday, Nov. 1st, being set for  "nomination" day, polling taking place  three weeks later, Tuesday Nov. 22nd.  1 Now that it has been decided when  the election in this riding will take  place, the fight will bc carried on with  vigor. So far' the Socialists have made  no move towards nominating a candidate and ..it- is,.pro,b.'ible"the fight^will  he be'tweerrCharjo':' H." Macintosh! the  Conservative nominee, and William  A. Galliher.'who will lead the forlorn  hope foi* the Liberals.  The electors of Kootenay will not  forget the fact that Galliher is a poli  tical cowaid. Fearing to face the  verdict of the electorate on the day of  the general elections throughout the  Dominion, XV. A. Galliher was a party  to a gerrymander scheme of fixing the  date of election in this riding two or  three weeks later, in tho hopo that the  Laurier government would bo sustained, thereby securing to himself the  prestige of a government which had  just heen endorsed by the electors of  Canada. Bul the electors of Kootenay are not thus easily hoodwinked,  as Galliher will find-'to his cost on  November 22nd.  The Campaign in Kootenay.  Hon. C. II. Macintosh, the Conservative si andard bearer for Kootenay,  spent Tuesday in the city. Mr. Macintosh is arranging for a thorough  canvass of tf.o constituency .and is  confident-that with united effort on  the part of his friends hc will he victorious on ' Nov. 22nd. He left on  Wednesday morning for Trout Lake,  Ferguson, Camborne and olher points  in that district, returning to Revelstoke in a few days when he will  address-the~clecto"rs"~oir the~issucs~of  the campaign.  Carmen Get Increased  Pay.  An amicable settlement of all points  at issue between the C. P. R. company  and the Carmen's union was effected  luVWinnipeg last Thursday, covering  thc en tire system wost of Fort William.  The agreement is perfectly satisfactory  tb both the company^ and (he union,  removing.; iill,. possibility of a strike,  ���������which-was imminent at one period in  the negotiations.  The cannon have secured an increase  of pay ranging froni one-half to two  cents'per hour all round, but they regard that as a minor matter compared  with the adoption of the code of rules  which are believed to he the best ever  compiled. They have been carefully  prepared after consideration of the  rules in vogue on all the principal  roads of America, commendable features having been adopted wherever  found. These rules provide for the  appointnient pf a generq.1 phi*.irman of  the Carmen's, unions on the C. P. R,  system who shall act as administrator  of their aft'sirs, arid Mr. L. L.

The men appear to be pretty evenly  matched, Person standing 5 ft, 10 in.  and weighing 190 lbs., while McLennan stands 5 ft. 11 in. and weighs ISO  lbs., so the match should prove an  interesting one and be a good test of  science, skill and strength.

A  referee will be chosen at the ring side,  the mutch commences at .8:30 sharp.  Prices of admission are GOc. and 75c,  reserved seats$1, children 25c. Seals  reserved for ladies ."SOu. This will be a  good, clean, refined'exhibition of the  grand old art'of wrestling, for ladies  as well as gentlemen. The record of  the two men is a guarantee that the  contest will bo no one-sided affair aud  should ensure a bum per house. Tickets  man bo had at the Canada Drug Store.  "My Friend From  India."

The speaker was seo ted in a cafe in  a certain town somewhere near the  .Sahara. 'I'he settlement was situaled in a disliicl, by name Aiiteran,  over which the French ("ovornniuiit  claims ovcrseership, and was under  tl.e local supervision of .Jules Arnotte, a gentleman ol portugucsse-  cum-Fiench extraction.  The Consul, for such wns the titlo  Arnotte enjoyed, was a crafty gen-  tlcnian, who would sloop to any  tlopth to gain his ends.  At this particular moment his  company ia iho cafe consisted of  two Englishmen and a number of  other men whose nationality it would  have been hard to discover; suflico  it to  say  they were not British.  The two Englishmen, J la rry Foster and Jh'ck Ainslie, had arrived one  day in Autcran, just ns Englishmen  do turn up in every corner of the  . earth. Thoy had been in town for  nearly a month, and in that, time-  had become inti-antc with most of  thc townspeople.  It was to Harry Foster that the  Consul, during n political argument,  had ad'tressed his unflattering remark, and after a moment's pause  he repeated it again.  Crack! Jules Arnotte was lying  on the floor with Harry Foster  standing ovcr him and inviting liim  to  insult him again.  At length Arnotte stood to hi.s  feet, his face pole as death, save  where a livrd mark showed where  "Foster's list had  been.  "You shall pay for this, you rascal Englishman." he hissed; and  then  he rushed  from thc cafe.  The other customers sat roun-d in  silence. Inwardly they approved of  Foster's action, for Arnotte was generally disliked; but it was best to  keep in witli the Consul, so nobody  applauded.  "I'm sorry I did tl' t," murmured  Foster;  "T was too hasty."  "Yes; I should think we'd better  clear out of this as quickly as possible," said Ainsjl-1. "What nay  you?"  "I'm agreeable," rejoined Foster.  The-two' chums soon got their belongings together and made prcpara-  t ions to start from the town. They  derided to work through the forest  to the westward and make their "wny  to  tho coast.  They left the town at nightfall, so  that their departure occasioned no  comment, for tho good reason that  there were no witnesses to it. The  night was spent in a hut about  twelve miles awnv.  By about midday- on tho morrow  tlioy were crossing the rocky .plateau  whicli marks the extreme western  boundary of Autorgn. Here they  ! ested for a wliile and partook of  their   dinner.  Tho ground about thcm whs of a  peculiar, formation: many tiny cracks  r-nd fissure"; ran hither end thither.  As Foster took out his pipe, it a.e-  > ldcntally fell from his grasp into  one ot the little crevices. It wns  loo deep down for him lo roach witli  his fingers, and, in consequence, he  ��������� ook out his clasp-knife nnd cul away  only for a short time," cried Foster.  "You sec, as soon as ho tries to  make it public it Will be at onco disproved, nnd no one will believe him."  Eventually the plan was agreed upon, and tho two friends retraced  their stops back lo the town, which  they "reached during the evening.  Their return did not cause any  surprise, for, ns yet, no one hud  givon much thought, to their absence, it being quite usual for townsmen to bo absent for a few days on  somo mysterious expedition into the  interior; then they were usually  wealthy for a dny or two, and ihero  wns mourning in some fnr-olT native  village.  It. wr.s part ot the plan that negotiations sliould bo opened up with  Arnotte, and for obvious reasons it  was considered desirable that Ainslie,  and not Foster, should conduct  thc.'c  Tho oflices oi" the Government from  whii'h tho law was dispensed in Autcran consisted of two villas, built  on raised iron foundations and connected by a glass-roofed passage.  The oflleo. wns the largest building in  t'he town, and above it Hew the Tricolor.  At cloven o'clock tho Consul entered his private ollice to transact  his daily business, but Ainslie was  before him and was waiting. The  Englishman sat cooling his heels until half-past twelve, when the Consul  signified  his readiness to  soo him.  "Good morning, Mr. 'Ainslie," said  Arnotte, through 'ho smoke of his  cigarette.    "What can I do for you?"  "Give me the favor of -a*, private  interview with you."  Arnotte looked suspiciously for a  moment    nt    his visitor,  and  in     a  The two Englishmen retraced their  steps to Autcran, for thoy deemed  it necessary to keep a watchful eyo  on Arnolte's movements.  Tho time seemed to go by on leaden wings whilst Ainslie und Foster  waited the coming of Matthews. Only  onco did they make any reference to  the mine to Arnotte, and Ihen Ainslie  said that a mining engineer was on  his wny to inspect the mine; nt the  same time ho winked vigorously and  thc Consul smiled, but inwardly that  worthy gentleman rejoiced in the fact  that his timo for revenge was drawing nigh, as he was still smarting  under indignity of tlie blow from  Harry  Foster.  Matthews arrived, and the trio  proceeded at onco to Autcran, and  then on lo the Thakrc Plateau. In  ti few moments ho wus congratulating Foster and Ainslie on their luck,  pronouncing tlie find to bo an immensely rich "pocket Held." As the  gold was ull near tho surface, working would  bo comparatively  cheap.  "Il-.it what aro you going lo do���������  hang on to it, sell the place, or  what? By tho way, liow long does  your option hold goodv"  "Thc land is ours for over," cried  Ainsljo; and then he told thn engineer of tho manner iu which ho had  obtained  lho ground.  "That's rather smart, but 10 percent, is a heavy lump for this Consul friend of yours."  "Oh, that's all right,'.' said Ain-r  slie, with a laugh. "I'm going to  soil the mine t.o Hurry, here, for two  hundred and liftv pounds: 1 shall then  present Mr. Arnotte with twenty-five  pounds."

He  watched Ainslie a.s though he would  divine his intentions, but tho Englishman's face wa.s like a mask.  "Now, thon. Mr. Ainslie, what is  it you want'?"  "I want to enter into a littlo compact with you. You have doubtless  heard that there is a good deal to  bc mndo out of mining: you know,  company promoting and t'Jiat sort of  thing. Somebody finds a mine out  in some unknown land, a. company is  formed, nnd the mine is sold to  them, of course, t'here is a lot of  gold in tho- mine." Ainslie. paused  and  solemnly winked  at  the  Consul.  "Ah!" said Monsieur Arnotte,  whilst his heady oyos glittered.  "Wo huve discovered a wonderful  mine," said Ainslie, and he onco  more winked ot the Consul.  Tho  Consul  winked nt  Ainslie.  "Of course," continued Ainslie, "if  wc could got a lease of tho ground  wc would not mind paying the Government a good price for it." Here  both men smiled, for Ainslie had accented tho word "Government."  "And," hc continued, "say 10 per  cent, for yourself oh thc price wc  realize on the minn."  '' Well. 1. soc n o official reason why  such n.'lease should not bo granted.'.'  said Arnotte. afler n little consideration.     "Whore  is your iiiino'.'-'  "On Thakre riatenu." ,.  "Ah!" said the Consul. "It's  somo wny in the interior; it will bo  awkward getting machinery there."  Once more he winked.  "Shall wc have an agreement  drawn up, thon?" asked Ainslie,  whilst he smiled broadly.  A map was produced, and an nren.  the bearings of which had been  roughly token by Foster g.m.1 Ainslie  the day before, waj; marked oft hy  Ainslie in an apparently careless  manner. A deed was then made out  by  whicli  tho  land   wns   secured      to j  should liko to make a more minute  inspection."  Matthews went vcry carefully over  tho ground, and a.s soon as possible  sent a long cable in code to his Jinn  in London. During the next few  days messages hummed backwards  and forwards ovcr the wires, with  the result. that Matthews was empowered to o.'Tor Foster-and Ainslie  ������200.000 and 20,000 shares in a  company to be formed, in return for  the .deed they held. Tho partners  asked time to consider the matter,  and in the* meantime they returned  to Autornn. Their first business was  to visit the Consul to whose private  office they wero. speedily admitted.  "Good morning, gentlemen," said  A'Uotle, his smile making hi.s evil  face look oven uglier than usual.  "Whnl can I do for you?"  "You will remember granting mo a  lease for a portion of Thakre Plateau?" began Ainslie.  "Aii���������yes," murmured the Consul,  his    evil     smilo   -growing "slill  moro  "I am glad to.������������������say that 1 have succeeded in disposing of the property,"  continued  Ainslie.  "Permit me  to .-congratulate you,"  beamed  the Consul.  ."Mr.    * Foster "-'purchased  tho     pro-  porty olT mo for the stun of two hundred   and   fifty   pounds."  As Ainslie said those words the  Consul's face assumed a most malevolent expression, although he tried  to  musk   it with a  smile.  "And," continued Ainslie. "J havo  much pleasure in handing vou a  draft for twenty-five pounds. J have  also taken tho trouble to prepare a  receipt, which I shall bo glad if you  will   sign."'  "Ah. you did not realize much  on your property." said Arnotte, re-  straining himself  witli dillieultv.  "These gentlemen are mining experts sent down by thc Government,"  ho said, whilst ho watched thc Englishmen narrowly, expecting to see  them cowed, but to hi.s disappointment his words had no effect on  them. "Tliey will proceed to make  nn examination of your so-called  gold-licld. Meanwhile, you will consider yourselves under arrest." Ho  motioned to tho sergeant, who stepped forward with his men and ranged- themselves alongside tho Englishmen.-  "What do you menu?" cried Ainslie. "What is Uio lncanina of this  outrage?"  The Consul paid no heed to his  remarks, but begun to converse with  the mining experts, who commenced  to  examine  thc ground.  "Look here, my friend," said Matthews. "What charge do you make  against mo?"  "The charge is only against these  two," replied tho Consul, as ho indicated Foster and Ainslie. "You  can go whore you liko aod do what  you   like."  "My friend," criod Ainslie, "if you  don't shirt j-our toy soldiers there'll  bo trouble. What arc we undo*' arrest fer?"  "What for?" returned the Consul,  with a triumphant laugh. "Why, for  'salting' thi.s ground with intention  to defraud."  His reply wns a liearty peal of  laughter, which considerably . disconcerted him. Shortly "afterwards" "the  two experts, ..who had been joined by  Matthews, .came alone. :  "One of tho finest fields I have ever scan,"   said Monsieur Lcssac.:  * "Yes,"   assented   Do   Stanton;.,.  "I  really do    hot    know why * Monsieur  the Consul .brought .us down here.'.'  Jules  Arnotte was staring at    thc  men, his countenance livid with-rage.  "What!"   he  screamed.     "Do     you  moan to say there is gold here?"  "Why, tho place is simply full of  it,"  replied De Stanton.  "Merciful Heavens!" cried the Consul.     "And I have given it away."  "Pardon me, you received two hundred and twenty-five pounds for it,"  remarked Ainslie. "Now, ..kindly, order your men away."  In a state of stupefaction the Consul did us he was bid.  ���������"Just to  think":'"  he gasped.  "And  it might have boon  inine."  He turned and, mounting his horso,  rodo away. Before ho was ten paces  distant he turned in his saddle and  shook  his Jist  at  the Englishmen.  "Wait," he shouted. "1 shall win  yot."

Moro interesting discoveries have  been made on thc ancient frigate  which hns heen found during dredging  operations  oil  Havre jetty.

A search among local records shows  that during the bombardment of  Havre by the Anglo-Dutch fleet in  3 759 a small English vessel armed  with two bombards was sunk by thc  fire from tho French  forts.

Soutli Africans, as a rule, trouble  themselves but littlo about snakes,  although it is vory well known that  a few varieties are particularly deadly. Among tho natives the properties  of thc "snakestone" ��������� havo for many  generations formed a centre of half  superstitious credulity, and even by  people who might bo expected to  know better, Have been supposed to  effect the most surprising-cures of  snakebite. An investigation of its  properties by thc government bacteriologists of Natal, who submitted  an Indian snakestone to tho test of  applying it to animals infected with  snake venom, has shown conclusively  that its properties are quite mythical  and that it does nothing that is  claimed  for  it.  According to tradition the snakestone, which hns absorbent qualities  and which there is some reason to  believe is frequently artificially pro-  pared, is placed on the wound inflicted by the snake. There it is believed to suck out the poison, and has  beer said that if afterward placed in  a bowl of milk tho venom will exude and t'ho milk turn  blue.  In certain experiments narrated in  The British Medical Journal, all  these directions wero followed. To  the two rabbits injected, respoeth'cly  with tho venom of a black mamba, a  vcry deadly South African coulbrine,  and with puff adder, venom, tho  snakestones was at once applied. The  stone, by virtue of its absorbent nature, adhered to the wound, but  here its adherence to tradition ended. Both rabbits died, and. what  was moro disappointing, two other  rabbits, used as a "control experiment," which were injected with the  same amount of venom, recovered.  Nor when tho stono was placed in  milk did the milk change color,  though a ilight quantity of it was  absorbed.  v Tho amount,-of absorption that the  stone could .possibly effect-would bo  no more in hours than ordinary suction by the lips could achieve in a  fow minutes, and its only possible  usefulness might bo that of improving-the physical condition of tho patient by impressing him with the belief that a valuable remedy was being applied.  ���������_ +   and not a commission on the valuo  of the estate, and it is not to his advantage to prolong the settlement  and engage in unending litigation.

State life insurance is another deservedly popular Institution of New  Zealand. Started more than tliirty  years ago with the design of promoting thrift among the poorer classes,  it has fully justified its design, with  the result that to-day the people of  Now Zealand carry more lifo insurance than any .people in the world,  tho average being nearly ������80 for  every adult "man. Of this sum the  State Oflice guarantees one-half, and  has undoubtedly greatly promoted  faith in this method of providing for  tlie future. A State.

Clark.  Children aro protected with special  solicitude.   A number of trades deemed noxious arc  forbidden  thcm,    like  silvering    mirrors,*   dipping      lucifcr  matches,  etc.        Women nnd  children  under  sixteen must  not he employed  for moro  thnn     forty-eight hours    a  week or at any  time  between six in  the ovening and eight in tho morning,  of  for  more  than  four  hours  and  a  half at a timo without half an hour's  interval  for meals.  Tho workman's wages, too, arc protected as in no other land. Wages  are payable in money only. Any  clause in a contract providing that,  part of the wuges shall be paid in  goods or otherwise than in monoy is  mill and void, and "an employer may  not sue for tho value of goods supplied to a workman at any shoji or  store belonging in nny degree to  him; noi' may ho in a claim for wages  ugninst him plead any counter-claim  or set-off.  PAYMENT OF WACES.  Wages must be paid at intervals of  not moro than one week, and boys  under eighteen must be paid a minimum wago of five shillings and girls  a minmum of four shillings per  week.  Moreover a weekly half holiday is  everywhere compulsory. Shops and  factories must close at 1 o'clock on  Saturdays, unless the local authorities, as i.s sometimes tho case, elect  Wednesday, more often Thursday, or  some other day of tho week for tho  half holiday. "Almost universal satisfaction is expressed with the working of this law. Business men admit that the volume of their business  has not been reduced, as they nt first  feared, and a well-known authority  on New Zealand affairs declares :  "Thore "is, perhaps, no other among  tho labor enactments that has - conferred such obvious benefit, with so  little injury and so littlo friction, ns  these cluu.ie3 which havo added half  a day a week to the leisure of thc  community."

Now Zcnlanders encourage  them, and thc vory act of Parliament  which ten years ngo established compulsory "arbitration is entitled : "An  Act to encourage the formation of industrial unions! or associations, and  to facilitate the settlement, of industrial disputes by conciliation and arbitration." This in turn has promoted the- formation of employora'  unions, and so the responsible recognized and "registered". organizations  on both sides.are provided for carrying the dispute to the court of Settlement. '" -'-**���������  Together with the court of arbitration. 'Boards of Conciliation' ase  established in each of tho six "industrial districts" of the colony.  These boards consist of five members,  two chosen from tho regis'tered union  of workmen, two from tho employers' union, while those four choose a  fifth  as their chairman. _  If all the parties to tho dispute accept tho ruling of this Board of Conciliation the mat tor is settled for  threo years, and the -case goes no  further. If, however, as is usually  the case, tho award is not satisfactory to one or the other of the parties concerned; the matter" is carried  to the Court of Arbitration, which  sits in different districts as occasion  requires. This court consists of  three members, ono nominated by the  employers' union, ono by the work-  mens' union, tlie third, who is the  president, is appointed by the former  in council. The award of this court  is absolutely final, and there is no  appeal.

Thc oldest specimens of glass, says  an authority on curious information, arc traced back from 1,300 to  2,300 years beforo Christ. These  are of Egyptian origin. Tianspur-  wit glass is believed to have ������������������ been  first used about 750 years beiore the  Christian era. The Phoenicians wore,  supposed by the ancients to have  boon responsible for the invention,  and the'story will bo recalled of tho  Phoenician merchants who, resting  their cooking pots on blocks of natron, or subcarbonatc of soda, found  that the union, under heat, of the alkali and the sand on the shore produced glass. Tliere is little doubt,  however, thnt the art of glais making originated with the Egyptians.  It wns introduced into Home in lho  time o' Cicero, and reached a re-  marknblo degree of perfection among  the Romans, who produced .501110 of  lhc most admirable specimens of  glass ovor manufactured; an instance  is the famous Portland Vase in the  British     Museum.        Glass    wus    not  used  for windows  SOO.  until  about A.  D.  err is human and Ihe ability  it divine..  to  BOARDS  OF   CONCILIATION.  Tho Boards of Conciliation, how.-  evcr, which it was hoped nt'the beginning would settle nine-tenths of  the aisputes, have not fulfilled public  expectations, for their awurds are  not considered final, und four-fifths  of tho cases are carried on to the  Board of Arbitration.  Jn the early days of tho law the  employers were slow to take advantage of it, both actively and passively, and all the early cases were  brought before thc court on the ini-  tation of thc labor unions; but when  tho employers found that the law  ho-d conic to stay thoy began to rc-  ���������gard it moro favorably, and decided  to test  it   fairly.  "As experience of the working of  the Act increases," writes a well-  known authority, "unionists will  probably become less,', employers morc  eager to invoke its aid. . Public opinion in tho colony is quite prepared  to give the experiment a fair trial;  thc employers and employed alike  will readily put up with incidental  difficulties, and even hardships, in thc  operation of the Act rather than ro-  ���������sort in labor disputes to the argument of thc brick-bnt."  PUBLIC TRUST OFFICE.  Though there may bc some lingering opposition yet to compulsory arbitration and other labor laws, there  is one peculiarly New Zealand institution which is unusually popular,  and that  is the Public Trust Oflice.  Tho Public Trust Oflire administers  estates whenever requested to do so  by tho testators or whon their owner  dies' intestate, and *'lhe public trustee may be nnmed substitute for nny  trustees of properly in the perform  Iheir duries. "'  The advantages of the public trustee nre obvious in the expedition and  economy with which estates are administered,     lie    is    paid his salary  laim. But aftor all this  troo, like every other, is known .onlj  by its fruits, and it must be said its  fruits "are not bad. ' *���������  This very paternal Government, it  must be remembered, is the deliberate  choice of tho people..themselves, and  th'oy ought to know what tliey want.  It may induce them too often to visit the public crib, but it"does" not  deprive them of self-respect, even if  it in some degree diminishes personal  initiation and self-reliance.  But what are the results of this  Paternalistic .--socialism ? .. Here .-aro  some of them. A land without paupers and without millionaires, an  amount of private wealth that gives  to each individual on the average  more than ������240, ranking,.him very  high among the inhabitants of the  most* favored nations in the world in  this respect; a country where every  individual spends more for food,  drink and clothes than in*any other  country in tho world, in spito of tho  comparative cheapness of staple articles; a country of industrious, prosperous, contented, law-abiding. Godfearing peoplo. Those indisputable  facts surely speak well for tho indtis-  tribl conditions in the world's economic experiment station.  -f-  BOERS LIKED BERMUDA.  Are.

A very simple little dross may bo  made for boy or girl under six in  bishop style which has only the  shoulder and back scams, the entire  skirt being in one straight piece  along the bottom. For a sleovo a  short puff or thc bishop may bo  chosen, and tlio node finished by gathering into a band or by several rows  of shirring with a heading, according  to material. It is an easy waj* in  which lo- muke up the dark print  for tho morning, and, slightly elaborated, is suited to lawn or China  silk.  Another easily-made garment for  the vcry young of either sex is tlio  Russian dress, with body and skirt in  one. It may be worn over either  bloomers or petticoat. The neck  may bn finished by a narrow standing collar or a hem finish may bc  given anil a removable Eton collar  worn. For sleeves, a sailor sleeve,  with wide box plait down its full  length arid the fullness laid in small  or elso the regular bishop slcevo  plaits at the wrist, is something new,  gathered into bnndn. The leather  bolt is to be worn with this,' held in  by narrow straps nt thc side. Largo  buttons may show down the sido  opening, or else smaller ones covered  by a strap of a contrasting material  and a corresponding strap on the  other side, both reaching from shoulder seam to hem. V?hito straps of  any good washing material make a  nent finish and wash woll.  For tho young girl in her early  teens tho plaited skirt has a smart  appearance. . It .may bo cither five  or seven-gored antl should measure  from four and a half to five yards  around the bottom with the plaits  drawn-out. .-The plaits may bc folded towards the front, ending with  -two box plaits^at the back, or may  belaid in box plaits all around, with  scarcely any space between. An inverted box plait nt the back disposes  of any extra fullness. These plaits  are .to be stitched down to any required 'depth,, below which they fall  free.  When either of those' skirts is to bc  worn with a shirt waist it is well to  havo outside suspenders for this very  immature young lady, or else with  hcr slim hips things do not keep in  place. The suspenders arc to be  mnde of tho skirt material, should bo  at least two inches broad, nnd may  be so treated as to be quite an ornament to the costume. They may extend in a divided peak at the shoulder, so as to droop slightly over the  sleeve, and should be nicely stitched  to corrcsjiond with tho stitched plaits  on tho skirt. They are to button on  to tho bumf *.*.ith two protty boui-  lons .to each suypender front and  back.  ���������   "sincerity,   in my     opinion,  most important qualiiicaiiuu for advancement in  liftf."

A BORN  FKillTKH.  Vis-count Haynshi knows something  of warfare from the actual and grim  side, for iu his student days ho  fought in the civil war in Toku-  gawa's party, and had tho misfortune to bu taken prisoner by thc  Government troops. It has been  stated, when so taken prisoner, ho  was condemned to execution, but on  account of liis knowledge of English  was spared, and sent to a legation  where sucli knowledge might be useful. Tart, of this, however, is a  mis-statement, for hi:; Excellency  tolls the writer that he "participated  in tho general amnesty afterwards  granted, but there waa no connection  whatever between these events, aud  his entering into the diplomatic service, whicli, in fact, happened many'  years  aftor  the  war."  The Japanese, ns a people, are distinguished by a strong patriotic spirit, and doubtless Viscount Haynshi  waa imbued witli this when, as n  more boy, lie determined to become a  naval officer, attending the necessary  schools and colleges to qualify, for  tliat career.  ARDENT PATRIOTS ALL.  Every career in .Japan is open to  tho poorest of tlio Mikado's subjects, for so strong is lhe patriotic  fooling tlint class jealousy is entirely  absent. "Everyone for his country"  is the watchword steadfastly held in  view.    .  There arc three classes iu .Tnpan���������  nobility, gentry, .. and commonalty,  and the ollicials of tho public services arc the flower of the nation.  At the commencement of thc reign  of the present Mikado, the Imperialists decided that without intercourse  with foreign nations the greatness  they so ardently desired for tlieir  country.could not bc achieved, and  they "set themselves strenuously to  work to prepare for this enlightenment by establishing relations with  other countries, and thoroughly qualifying themselves for equality with"  such. It     is  interesting     to  know  from  Viscount J-lnyashi    how keenly  capacity correspondingly increased.  To wind up wiih. it is estimated  to contain one-third of lho masonry  contained in the Great Pyramid of  Cheops, and it lias been proved by.  tho folk who employ their time  proving such things that if thu  ���������.tones composing that pyramid were  cut into bricks a foot square and  ranged in single file along the ground  tliey wo*:ld cover a distance of 17.-  000 miles, or two-thirds the circumference of the earth at the equator.  By tho time you have digested  these facts you will have reached thc  othor end of the dam. and there the  great navigation canal and four hugo  locks, onu above the other, each  20OxM2 feet, are to seen. And as you  look, there comes a snorting and  puffing, and the thud, thud of u  great wheel. and a Government  stcrn-whccler, bound for the Second  Cataract, conies plodding up the  canal. And then���������and here is (ho  apex of genius���������ra button is pressed a  lever is turned, and all the strength  of lho pent-up water of the lake i-j  brought into play, and silently tho  great lock gates aro backed into  their sockets, tho basculei* of tho  drawbridge above them raised, and  lhe steamer puffs up to the first lock,  then up to Uie second, and so until  ttic last lock is readied; then the  water is sot to help itself again.  Slowly it rises, tho southern gates  open and thc steamer floaUs out onto  the waters of the great lake.

Among the latest fashions in garments for shoulder wear nowadays,  the capo is conspicuous, for although  scarfs of silk with shirring of chiffon  und iiiKertings of lace are protty and  graceful, they afford little comfort to  tho wearer. The cape, while effective in connection with summer  frocks, is also convenient and practicable, on account of thc much elaborated slcevo it is meant to cover.

The  Mackenzie Governnienthaviiig secured  power, and sprung an election upon  the country iu - 1S74. the following  upholders of the "standard of purity"  being unseated; two -members being  disqualified for personal bribery,  coercion and corruption:  Shibley, Jodoin, Mackay, McGregor,  Chisholtn, Ii-ving, Xoriis, Devlin. C'ou-  pal, Biggar, Murray, Aylmer, "Wilkes.  Prevost, Higgiiibothain, Gushing,  Tremblay, Macdonald (Cornwall). Mc-  Nab. Wood. Cameron (S. Huron).  Walker, Mackenzie (Montveal),Stuart,  Kerr (Northumberland).- Miicdougall,  Cook, O'Donohue, McLennan, Dy-  mond.  Imagine! Thirty immaculate "standard elevators," found guilty of bribery  and corruption, personally and by  agents! In one case, that of the London, Ontario, contest, ic wa.s proved  that over S2O.0O0 had been expended  by 'flJe^IifdWifz'ie~c7imlM  lowing letter being produced by one  of the Lila-i-al witnesses hs having  'lieen written to him. by one John  Moddivt-r:  "Dear John,���������I hope you will come  and help us  to puL down bribery and  corruption     .     Come   along  John, we've lots of inonev."  John came, John voted, and John  frpent money, but the gentleman  whom he assisted to elect was disqualified during that parliament.  "\Vhat do we fee today? .Similar  tactics throughout. "Wherever au  election is protested. Purity on the  surface, flagrant misdoings beneath.  Take for instance the contest in the  St. James Division, of Montreal,  where the Liberal candidate, Mr. Joseph Brunet, was declared elected.  The finding of the judges was:  "In the course of the trial of Uie  present petition before us. it has been  proved that fraudulent acts have been  practised during the election' to  ���������Which the said petition refers,  to       the       knowledge of        the  said defendant, Josepii Brunet,  and with his consent. That a certain  ���������number of persons committed the  offence of personifying other persons  in the defendant's interest and hnd  been paid with his money; that had  been taken out of the boxes at poll 37,  torn and destroyed by the returning  officer,   named   Randolph   Hetu,    in  conspiracy with the poll clerks named  Louis Gingras, Edouaril Lefebre, thc  petitioner's representations and Jos.  M. N. Desy the defendant's representatives, and that the ballots had been  replaced by others tbat had been  marked,in favor of the defendant.  In this case the Liberal candidate  was disqualified for seven years;  others went to gaol, but were immediately pardoned ! In Brockville and  other places similar tactics were  adopted, elections being stolen from  the people, despite the.vote they-cast  against tlie Laurier-govcrnment.    ,  DISGRACEFUL DECEPTION.  (Continued from Page 1)  vativos have never been inimical  to  the rights of labor; at the same   time,  the fact must not be overlooked,   that  in both parties are men  entertaining  pronounced,'..'   sometimes      extreme,  views, with "reference   tri   labor   and  capital. -.-.  For''instance    there    are  members of  Ibe Senate,    who   havn  known what it was to  toil  and   cue  fairly estiiniite.tlie position; but when  Senators McMullen, Gibson and half a.  score of others, are found  denouncing  the aspirations of labor,  one almost  despairs of ever 'seeing   harmony  restored and capital and labor brought  together in friendly communion.    For  Sir William Mulock, Ministerof Labor,  to  imagine  that  ho can  successfully  deceive both  interests,   is   but   proof  that vanity  and self-conlidence  have  *;������it the better of him.    He cannot fool  either side all the   time.      it   is   well  enough to initiate labor legislation  in  lhe Commons and have the guillotine  ready for it in the Senate; but that  is  not    statesmanship,    neither     is    it  patriotism.     Such a  system is  more  likely to create   greater   friction;   for  naturally, with Sir William Mulock s  promises, each looks   forward   to   triumphing over the other. Labor stands  expectant,   capital  goes to rest confident, both are being made cat's paws  of;   Sir   William   Mulock   draws   his  indemnity    nnd    salary,    the   Labor  Gazette is published at the expense  of  the taxpayers of   the   Dominion,   Sir  William    Mulock's   old  promises  are  being replaced  by  new  ones  and  all.  (he Government desires now  is  backbone enough to go to the country and  money enough to if possible carry the  elections.     Splendid program; worthy  ambitions.

C.  on two very important occasions, the  division lists of tbe Senate, have been  misruported. For instance, last year  (l'.)OI) two hills were introduced in" the  Senate. Bill "4". by Senator Loughoed,  "an act to aim n 1 the Criminal Code,  respect inir olletioes connected witb  trade nnd breaches of contract." This  bill dealt with alleged abuses that had  obtruded themselves upon the industrial life of Canada, more particularly  in the western portion of the Dominion, within recent years, namely, the  continued presence of Alien .and  irresponsible bihorngitators in inciting  strikes, etc, (see page 113 Senate Ollicial  Debates.) Hon. Senator W. Gibson,  (Liberal), who bud lieen defeated in  Lincoln and of course elevated to the  Senate, espoused Senator Lougheed's  cause, with much warmth, he said:  '���������This bill is in the right direction,  but it does not go far enough; because  ir only treats with individuals, whereas, .sometimes strikes are directed by  Corporate Unions." (Page 144 Senate  Debates.  Mr. Gibson proceeded to denounce  tliose who united to force tlieir opinions and wishes upon any industrial  firm. He applied this more particularly to foreign agitators, who should  be kept out of Canada. In tlie days of  Liberal opposition no member was  more ardent in expressions of solicitude regarding the |\vnrking man than  iho present Senator J. McMullen, of  North Wellington. To-day, hard  would be the lot of nn artisan who  got twixt the wind and this Liberal  senator's nobility I He, too, last, year  thought an artisan should apologize  for being found alive. Speaking on  thc above bill he said;���������  " It is quite time that some legislation should be placed upon the statute  hooks of this couniry, to put a stop to  the never ending agitation and worry  which employers are subjected to by  organizations that havo their hcad-  cpiarterson the other side of the line,  coercing and coaxing organization on  this side to go into and make unreason  able demands . . , . Tbey claim the  right to dictate how many hours a  man shall work in a day .... Labor  conditions will get to a pitch in Canada, that mon will be forced, to refuse  contracts in many lines, ite."  Of course the object was to strike  the Canadian Labour organization  over the back* of those in tbe United  States. Later on (page 690) Senator  Kerr, of Cobourg, Ont., said :  "When I cast, my vote in favor of  this bill, 1 do so as a true friend of  Labor Unions.. I cuinot conceive  anything tbat will array the Canadian  people and the capitiUists of buth  countries, aga'.nst Labor Unions, more  than agitators coming in here io  meddle with union men's affairs."  There was >x good deal of McMuIlen-  Js_niJii_^ies<2i:^<y_tir^i^LJ]0\v^er,  only a sauple of tbe hot and cold  breath of Liberalism.  Senator McGregor, another Liberal,  followed.     H������ said (page 090);���������  " I am to some extent an employer  of labor myself, ff there is anything  T wonld punish, it is the man who  would prevent a laborer from doing as  he pleases."  Mr. McGregor further remarked  that he would vote against the bill  because in some particulars it interfered with the private rights of men  who might wish to meet the foreign  countries and consult with one another. The division list was called  July 22, I0Oa, with the following  result:  In favor of the bill     38  Against the hill     l'->  The bill was rend a third time and  passed. The Liberals who voted in  favour of tho measure were Messrs.  Casgrain, Frost, Fulford, Gibson,  Godhout, Kerr, Cobonrg, Kerr (Toronto) McLaren, McMullen, Pelletier  Sir Alphonse) Power (speaker)Tessier,  Wood���������15. And* yet it is not n.t all  uncommon to hear Liberals abusing  onr Conservative Senators and  anathematising thp.m as enemies of  the artisan : Here is a case, where I printed by  had Liberals been sincere in past I administration  professions (that if, when in opposition) tbe votes for the bill would  have counted as follows : for the  Bill, 23; against 28; majority against  5. And yet, peoplo are asked to credit  the statement that ��������� Conservatives are  uncompromising enemies of the  working classes!  In the Senate on tho 25th of June,  1903, Hon. Mr. Beiipie (Liberal) moved  the second leading of Bill "tin act to  amend the criminal code J892. restricting free Labour." Mr. Bcique explained that while the code of 1892  provided for the preservation of peace,  it did not go far enough. He explained :  " My object in introducing this bill  is to   provid  the conditions are altogether abnormal, and that [extraordinary precautions should be taken to preserve the  peace. We have had that experience  lately, especially in Montreal, during  the late strikes."  This bill clothed the poliee authorities with power to make summary  arrests during strikes and it remained  for the party arrested to prove his  innocence. Although he had been a  mere spectator. During the debate  Senator Cloran (Liberal) stated���������"I  have consulted thepublic press of this  country and have failed up to the  present time to find one organ of public opinion defending the passage of  this bill. In fact where public opinion  i.s expressed it is, in both languages,  against the measure."  ___n__t_}^J_������g_ue___ji*y'^  have been intended as a direct attack  upon Labour, but it bore all the ear  murks and was objected to by the  working classes, not because they  asked or demanded immunity from  punishment should they infringe any  law, but rather that it was a. recorded  reflection upon them as citizens.. It  remained for Senator McMullen to put  the finishing touches on the debate  (page 731):-  " I want to say that I have hail the  privilege of sitting in parliament for  eighteen years and in my humble  opinion there never was a law brought  before parliament that is more necessary than-the one which is now before  the House. Take the experience of  this country for the last two or three  years, for the last year particularly,  a number of strikes have taken place  and men who were "willing to labour  where tbey were wanted, have been  subjected to abuse, insult and injury,  tlieir homes and families threatened,  themselves called "scab" and every  kind of abuse heaped upon them."  Tn the old days plain "J. McMullen  M.P. for North Wellington" painted  in gruesome colors the lot of the poor  workingman whose taxes were nppro-  vilely extravagant  for the purpose of  purchasing table napkins for Government House 1  Hon. Mr. de Boucherville, (Conservative) said:��������� j  " Wu have measures of precaution!  against strikes, if they aro dangerous.  They immediately fall under the  criminal law as the law exists.  Therefore for my part I shall vote  against the bill; not because I consider  il. bad, but because I consider it useless."  The Hon. Mr. Dandurand (Liberal)  joined issue at onco. It was necessary  t.o cope with situations, therefore he  approved of the bill. Senator Dandurand further said :���������  processions when a strike is on in any  part of Canada."  All amendments were voted down,  Senator Beigue's motion for the third  reading of this measure being carried,  by the following vote, For 31; Against  20; majority in favour, 11. Had so  called Liberal friends of the working-  man opposed Mr.. Beique's motion it-  would have been defeated by a vote of  34 against, 17 in favour of the proposed  legislation. The Liberals who made,  the majority were Senators Beique,  Edwards, Fulford, Frost, . Godbout,  Kerr (Toronto), Kerr (Cobourg), Lov-  itt, McMullen. McKay, Power (Spoak-  er),PelIetier (Sir Alphonse). Robertson,  Wood. It will be observed that some  of the recent appointments to the Senate, made on' the plea that various  industries sliould be represented, comprised men who had-beenin-the House  of Commons. Senator Edwards represented   Russell  and   was   then    the  workingman'8 friend"; so was Senator Frost, M. P. for Leeds and Gren-  ville; Senator Fulford too and Senator  Kerr of Cobourg, both ardent Liberals  one a worker in Brockville, the other  M. P. for Northumberland, professed  a generous sympathy towards the  toiler in field, factory or mill���������but  "wts'hk bknators now." All said and  done, tliere is nothing more effective  for a Minister of Labor than having  two strings to his bow, and if Sir  William Mulock has not that advantage, it is not his fault. Still it i.s iin  extremely dangerous game to play  upon intelligent people.  .-a**���������  ������_���������*���������*������������������-  ������____-  &  ������_*^  <_���������������-  __���������*--  a**-*���������  ts*~  6***-������-  e*f���������  ������_p������-  ������,**__  jp_L_  ���������������->-  e_>���������  (!���������������  CS**-**-  fiC***-  ITS.

Philip Randal, no longer a. mere  lieutonunt of infantry., now ranked  as captain, while holding <i stall  appointment. nnd hotl recently arriv-  ed at the large station of Mvsera-  bad.  He had been  wounded at the end  of  tho      Hohilcunde   campaign     in  May,  passed  maraj-   weeks, in  hospital    anrf  many more ut Uw> hills at Nynec Tal,  to recover h-ia sorely shattered health  before  he  was lit for duty.      He had  received   Jcs.-.ie's   letter    offering     to  release him     from    their engagement,  and   hc   had   replied   that  he  had    no  desire for     the     freedom  she  offered,  but   that   he hoped  very booh   to     be  able  to send for her.      He bad     also  had   that curious visionary experience  which  the  doctor    had     ascribed      to  home-sickness    acting     upon   nervous  depression.       He   reproached     himself  often for the lack of cnthnsinsni with  which he regarded  the ponding happy  eonsummation     of    his   engagement,  but hoped     that   proper    enthusiasm  would  be  forthcoming on  the   fitting  occasion   when   he   should   look     once  more  upon   tho   pretty  childish     faco,  now    so  dim  in  his memory,   and    of  the  probable changes  in     which'      he  did not think.    Hcr face had naturally   become     dimmer     in   his  memory  since  her picture    was shattered     at  the  relief  of  Lucknow.      He  was     in  no   position   to   marry,   even   without J  the      professional  ambition   to  which  his marriage,   especially  his marriage  with  Jessie,   would  be a serious  hindrance.      It     had   even  been     hinted  to   him   by  some  who  knew,   that    he  should,   and   with   his  already   gained  distinction  could,   marry   into   a   family  having     high     military   influence.  IJut   he   doubted   this,   for  every    day  the stigma  of his unknown origin became harder to boar.    The mysterious  little     fortune     which   came   to     him  after thc Crimea  could not.-ns he at  lirst     thought,     possibly  have     come  from       the      broken-down      Matthew  Meade.-who  was 'unable even  to  provide   for   his   own   daughter:   it   must  have come from some kinsman of his  own.        There .  must  be  some  thing  unusually painful   in connection    with  his birth; though, after oil.  the'most  painful   thing  for   him   was   the   mystery.      Could   he  but  sny, ."'My   father     was   a     rat-catcher     of   nomadic  habits.-a day laborer, or a    -rich but  honest tradesman,"   he .would     have  something firm  to  stand  upon.  After the. Rohilcmide campaign Mr.  Cheeseman had sent liim out a parcel which surprised 'awl touched him  greatly.- It was" a box recently discovered in a disused attic by the  miller who succeeded liattbew Meade  at Stillbrooke. antl was ticketed iu  the hitter's peculiar unformed writing, "For Philip linndul at my  death."  It contained the clothing of a child  of threo. and some faded age-yellowed papers. One packet was labelled,  "Philip, aged two years," and enclosed  a     soft,     short     curl  and     an  Clod  will  surely  pity our ljiisery and  protect    my     innocent     and     deeply  wronged child.      1 will  work my lingers to the    bone    before I will risk  his  discovering    his   infamous  parentage,   and I am so young and strong  that I must get work."      "Tho money will soon  be gono and no  work."  Other     passages*     ran   thus :   "This  terrible     isolation    would  turn      my  brain  bu.t  i or my     precious  boy."���������  "To-day     I'hilip     gttve  me  pain,   he  had a look  of    his father.    I     would  rather see the    sweet litUe    roguirfi  face dead than bearing any truce   of  that black soul."���������"If my boy is but  an  artisan  or    day laborer he    may  still be a gentleman at heart and an  honest man."���������"I  fear I am ill,   but  I must  and  will  get, better.   I    cannot die and leave my treasure alone"  ���������"Sold tho ruby and diamond bracelet."���������"F. sont ������5;  grumbled   at my  false name and at having only P. 0.  address, I dare not    trust him    further."���������"That     love' such    as    mine  should turn  to hate is scarcely credible,   but  tlie  cause,   ohl   the cause is  beyond   credibility."���������"Has  not     my  wretched beauty brought mo    enough  misery?

Among tho papers not. in the delicate Italiun hand tliat was evidently  Mary Handal's, was one beginning  "Darling Mary" and ending "your  own most loving A. M." . It was  dated M.C., April, 3 834, and spoke  regretfully of the obs'tacles in the  way of marriage with the writer,  who appeared to be in a higher position than the evidently rfowerless  Mary, and whose father wished him  to "look higher." It. counselled  "patience for the present" and a  "stolen match" at the worst in the  future. It wus evident that poor,  broken-hearted Mury, ��������� in.-spite-of tho  horror with which she had come to  regard her child's father, who oeom-  o:l to have wronged her beyond the  common measure' of man's' iniquity,  could not bring herself to part with  this, perhaps, her first love-letter,  which, in spite of some duplicity, had  real feeling.  Did "M. C." imcatv MarweUCourt'?  Was it lie then who'broke her heart  and crushed her youth? Jf Matthew  Meacle had not. died so unexpectedly  1 'liiilip-'would have" known all.' If he  had been well born, would Matthew  Meade have asked him to marry  Jessie? Sometimes he was tempted  to think il. hard that his adopted  lather should have laid this burden  upon him, but his heart reproached  him   when   he   remembered   tho     good  The las't duy of bloodshed, the day.  when h'e fell, severely wounded,  seemed very far off; though really  little over five months ngo��������� the  months were like years. His health  had been shattered both by tlie long  campaign and his final wound. This  long illness, the knowledge of India  acquired during convalescence, and  the subsequent promotion, all helped  to widen the gap between that time  and this, and threw those romautie  memories farther back into  the past.  As he was walking along in the  cooling evening, he heard the merry  shout of an Knglinh child among the  trees surrounding a bungalow, and  out from tho enclosure darted a little sunny-headed boy, while at the  same time a rose struck Philip in  the face and sprinkled him with its  crimson   leaves.  "Harry, Hurry," called a voice  which thrilled him to the heart. Then  a lady ran out after the truant boy  who had cannoned against him, with  hor dark hair shining in tho aim,  and her face full of laughter. "You  naughty boy!" she was saying.  She stopped at the sight of Fhilip  whoso dark face, thoroughly 'browned by two Indian summers, paled  in the warm sunshine.  "I beg your pardon, Captain Ran-  dnl," she said, iicrceiving tho rose-,  leaves with which she had sprinkled  him. "I waa thinking of you only  to-day when I had a letter that you  may like to see from Gossanijee  Hhose, our . old friend. This i.s a  little nephew. Not Willie? oh, no,  Willie went home to his friends in  the spring. It was a hard parting;  when one has been through so much  for and with a child, you don't know  hon:jMe'S heart clings to him. We  are till, so glad of your promotion.  My father says you have such opportunities before you on the stall of  such a man. He is in the veranda,  and  will bo so glad to  seo you."  Philip scarcely knew what he said  or did in the strange vertigo that  the light blow of the rose and the  sound of Ada's voice brought upon  him. He gathered that his coming  was known and had been expected,  and that to renew his acquaintance  with the Maynards was looked upon  as a matter of course, and, like a  man in a dream, followed Ada  through an orange-grove, and past  beds of sweet mignonette, while tuberose and other pleasfcint flowers,  whose odors floated on the balmy  air, anil enhanced the magic of Ada's  voice and tlie glamor of her presence  till he reached the veranda, whore  Colonel Maynard was lying on a  chair, reading, and Mrs. Maynard's  faded graces wero reposing on a  cane lounge.  "Yes, we were talking of you this  morning,". ~ Colonel Maynard said  when Ada had explained his presence, nad he had been introduced to  tho widowed d'auhter, Mrs. iios's, one  or two children, the young ensign  son, AVilmot; a tame: mongoose, and  a young pet boar rolling about in  the sunshine.        '  "Vou-will show Gossamjce Bhosc's  le'ttor," Ada, rny dear. Ada does not  forget her perilous flight," ho added,  when slie was gone for tho letter,  "though indeed���������"he broke off  abruptly.  Philip ' understood that h'e was  thinking, like so many others, that  the less those dork days were remembered the better, es(>ecially for  Ada. whom the flight placed in.,'on J  awkward position. 'When Ada returned with the .letter' the handed  him a white rose with it: "to make  up   for  my  rough   salute."   she    said.  connection with thorn;-.- a reserve  that, being mutual, constituted a  secret bond between Philip and Ada,  the consciousness, of which when  their glances met sometimes sent a  keen thrill through I'hilip and caused  Ada's sensitive niouth to quiver so  faintly that ho only saw it.  The fascination of the Knst had  taken Philip's imagination as it had  taken Ada's and more than this  fascination, the deep interest which  both had in those dusky, graceful  people with their ancient civilization  and religions, their venerable literature, picturesque histories and customs, bound them together, and  many an earnest conversation did the  quartet, Ada, her father and brother  and Philip, hold upon Indian history,  tradition, and Uiturnture, and upon  tho destiny and duty of England in  the peninsula during those brief paradisaic  weeks.  "I cannot imagine what your father can see in those horrid natives,"  Mrs. Maynard frequently said to her  daughter Mabel; "especially nfter  they have shown themselves such  fiends. As for Ada, it is positively  unwomanly of her to mix in such  conversation. Sho is nearly twenty,  and will never marry anybody else,  I suppose." Uy which else Mrs.  Ross understood her mother to  signify Captain Randal, who was at  least good enough for a girl who had  reached years so mature without so  much as an engagement. "She has  ovorslood her market," her mother  elegantly  observed.  "Ada might do worse than - .' take  Randal," Colonel Maynard caid to  his wife in a moment of confidence.  "You nee, my dear, if it got. wind,  that Becla-mpore business would bo  awkward. As you say, twenty is a  great ago in India. Ada has  snubbed so many men; besides,  this young fellow will rise. He has |  not only talent and character, but  htis been lucky enough to got himself recognized iu tho right quarter.  Lord Blank has taken him up and  means to make use of him. As for  birth', Ada has that; besides, grandfathers have gone  out  of  fashion."  "Hut people at least have fathers  still," urged Mrs. Maynard, whose  own father was a nineteenth baronet.  "Hot necessarily; with talent and  luck the want of a father rather enhances a man's personal distinction."  "Hut ho has neither family, interest, nor money," sighed Mrs. Maynard.  "He  has  at  least  no   family  hindrances  and .Lord  Blank's  interest    is  omnipotent..-.-' As for money,   enough'  will  come.      Besides,  my  dear,  will  never marry at all,  unless  has her own way about it."  mg.  lies were labelled in Matthew Meade's  faded nandwriting, "Given as thc  late Mary Randal's property, by her  landlady Mrs. Koberts, -4 Brook  Street. Chichester, September,  1S33."  They were contained partly in a  small leather desk, partly in a handsome morocco-bound diary. In the  desk was a wedding-ring. With it  was a  keeper set  with brilliants    and  "True; and to be an- old maid in  India is too terrible a disgrace,"  Mrs.   Maynard   Sorrowfully   agreed./  Philip knew very well that Lietit-  enaiit-rColonel the Hon. Lionel Maynard. R./Avy; Was an earl's son and  brother, andN-he knew all about the  nineteenth "baronet, but he did not  know how Tittle money in proportion  to his numerous" children the. colonel  had, arid, what 'an article of; faith  it had become with both parents to  get their numerous- daughters married. ��������� .He. thought, himself too .unsuitable to be considered dangerous,  and supposed that tho Maynards  deemed him as harmless a companion  for their daughter as the pet bear;  nor did it over occur to, him that  Princess Ada, whose repute in the  station was that of a most highland  mighty damsel, would ever condescend from her highi estate to him  even if lie     dared     lay  siege  to  FEEDING   STEF.RS.  Interesting facts about feeding!  steers in barns and sheds have lieen  recently worked out by the Pennsylvania experiment station under the  direction of Prof. T. I. Muirs. The  main points considered aro comparative gains in live weight, health and  vigor of the animals as indicated by  the amount, of food consumed and  tho relative economy of the method  so far as it relates to the amount of  feed consumed per pound gained. The  steers. were divided into two lots of  12 each nnd wore selected from a--  carload lot bought for fattening purposes.  Lot 1 wns fed in a large pen or  box stall in th'o basement, of the col-  lego barn. Lot 2 was fed in tho  yard ' adjoining the barn. A shed  14x10. feet was built across one side  of this yard to give shelter to the  animals. It was inclosed at both  ends, wliile one side toward the  southeast was opened. This was  constructed of rough boards. A solf-  rccoiding thermometer wns placed in  the shed and one in the barn. Both  lots of animals had plenty of fresh  water. The aim was to treat all as  nearly alike as possible, except the  shelter.  ���������I Shredded corn stover and clover  hay wero fed. The grain ration consisted of 3 2 parts corn and cob  meal and one part cottonseed .meal.  This .was fed to February 11, aftor"  which, to the close of the experiment  corn meal and cottonseed meal were  fed in the same proportions. Tho  steers were weighed on three consecutive days at the beginning of tho  experiment and the average of thi.s  was taken as th'o correct weight.  During the experiment they were  weighed two consecutive days every  second week, the average of which  was taken. Where there was a vcry  great difference, a third weighing  was made the following day. All  materials fed to tho animals : were  weighed and recorded. Tho foods uneaten wero removed and weighed. The  experiment began November 26 anil  closed April 1. Up to December 11,  grain was fed three times a dny,  with stover at night and hay in the  _ morning. After that the grain was  Ada I fed twice a day, with hay at night  sho nnd stover in the morning, lt was  I thought  that, morc  stover   would   bc  Sowa carrying much flesh, made  while confined in small pens, will  provo at best unsatisfactory breeders. In the summer, exercise is easily secured by the use of pasture,  but winter conditions at the north  are so adverse to outdoor life of the  pig, tlhut much ingenuity is called for  on the part of the herdsman to attain the desired end. Sows will gain  exercise in winter when the weather  is not too cold if turned inlo sheltered yards, where horses and cattle  will not annoy them. If litter from  the stable is thrown in the yard, exercise will be gained whilo working  this over in search of waste grains.

The lot fed in the opon shed produced a slightly smaller gain at the  expense of a somewhat greater i  amount of food. It is not clear that'  the  lower  temperature to  which Lot  2 was exposed  was  the  cause  of  tho  Somo    years     ago    fruit    growers  thought   that     the introduction     of  cold  storage would  revolutionize  the  business and about do away with ordinary    cellar storage,  writes  O.  H.  Van    Hou-tcm.       They   believed that  early apples    could  be kept in   cold  storage   throughout   thc() fall   season,  and thus come into competition with  the winter  apples.     While great success 'has been had  with refrigeration,  the average farmer will still have no  cause to change from the old-fashion-  e1 cellar method,  if he uses common  sense and  care  in  preserving liis apples.     I  know   of  nothing  morc    de-  sitahle   than   first-class   Genet   apples  buried in  the ground  and  kept  until  spring.  _Tn     a     properly    constructed     and  well-innnagod   collar,   fruit  and  vegetables should  keep all  winter.  Farmers should bear in mind that it does  not hurt apples to freeze, so long as  they aro buried  deep  enough  to  prevent, thawing  before  springtime.       ft  ia  wiso to  put  on o   mulch   of  straw  or  litter,  alter  thc ground  is  frozen,  to   prevent     the   fruit   from   thawing  during  a  warm  spell.     Generally     I  would say a cave is    more desirable  thon  a  cellar.        A   well-bricked   cave  arched  over and nicely cemented  will  not cost  too    much  for tho average  farmer.     Thc satisfaction of     such a  storage  house  will   fully  repay     the  extra  work  and  expense.  Good results nre obtained by suborn th ventilators. Tn caves these  arc made as deep as the nature of  the ground will permit, preferably so  the top of thc ventilator will not bo  above the level of the ground. Tiling  should bo laid from some point that  is several rods from the cave; it  should enter ut tlio bottom of the  cave, nnd bc so constructed as to act  as a drain in case water should seep  into the cellar. Tiling should be  large enough to allow a good inflow  of air, and a good opening should  be maintained for the exclusion of  foul atmosphere in the cave. By the  use of this system of ventilation,  outside air is cooled and circulated  in the cave whilo all impurities are  carried off. Tf a farmer rannol see  his way clear to build such a,"storage cave, his cellar should be opened  in tho fall, when the oir is cool, and  closed when the weather is yet warm.'  Thc cellar should , be-kept tightly  closed during warm and windy days  of   ths  fall.'   My experience  has  been  TEADES F0B_THE BLIND  MANY     PROFESSION'S     WHICH  THEY CAN FOLLOW.

From the proud position ot" prima  donna, or concert pinnist, ,down to  the humbler branches of pianoforte-  Uining, music opens its arms to tho  entry of the sightless.  Mendel,- the blind pianist, recently  earned tlie rapturous praise of critics for his magnificent, playing. Ho  has a repertory of a thousand pieces  of all kinds, and his touch has been  pronounced perfect by fellow-pianists.  Ho hns wonderful powtjrs oi memory  and extemporisation.  Of course, the art of music can bo  taught in all Hs branches to a man  without the aid of written notes. Tiie  pupil is taught by familiarity .with  the sounds thomsclves, and may often gain a finer knowledge of tho  art than the man who scribbles exercises on reams of paper.  ���������Hundreds of blind persons to-day-  engage in tho occupations of music:  teachers, organists, aud piano-tuners. In ,, tlte latter profession, the  person possessed of a good musical  ear, but no special talent, may bo  almost sure of a living.  If Ihe keys of the piano ad'ord tho  means of a livelihood lo tho sightless, so also do the keys of the typewriter.

But how is any one to tell what constitutes top violent exercise? Ono  xnan can with" impunity bear more  violent' exercise than another man.  A man can bear more violent exercise' ono dny than another, according  to how ho fools. No one would exercise too violently if he knew it at  tiie time. lt is a question of judg-  i.'!-?nt merely. Lively ambitious boys  or girls often think they can stand  moro violent exercise than they, are  *ble to.  Whnt then is"thc rule by which one  may know when he is taking too violent exercise? Is there any way for  every one to decide for themselves at  tho  timo?  Yes; there is a very simple way.  Keep your mouth shut. Breathe  through your nose. As soon as you  discover that the exercise you arc  taking compels you to open'". your  mouth to breathe you are taking too  violent exercise.  In the exigencies of business it  happens sometimes that a person is  called upon to run, or to meet some  sudden -emergency requiring muscular  exercise which compels him to  breathe . through .his mouth.; Of  course,' such things: can not always  be; nvoidoj, but -in deliberately taking exercise no one should resort to  "greater violence than' can be maintained ' by- breathing through -his  nose.     .

ST, VITUS DM,  MUST BE TREATED THROUGH  THE BLOOD AND NERVES.  One o! the Worst Cases" on. Record  Cured Through the Use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.  St. Vitus dance is a nervous dis-  easo cMefly afflicting children. There  t aro a number of signs by which it  may bo detected such as a twitching  of the muscles of the face, shaky  hands, or a jerky motion of the  arms, a trembling or a drugging . of  tho logs, irritability and restlessness.  St. Vitus dnnco is caused by disordered nervea and blood���������that is why  it is always cured by. Br. Williams'  Pink Pills. The pills' fill the veins  with pure, rich red blood, which in  turn soothes nnd braces the nerves,  ranking the yulTorcr well. Mrs. Luff-  man, Toucher's Mills, Ont., tells  how Br. Williams' Pink Pills cured  her daughter, Louise. "I do not  think it possible," says Mrs. Luft-  man, "that anyone could be afflicted  with a more severe form of St. Vitus  dance than that which attneked my  daughter. Her arms and legs would  twitch and jerk, hei- face was drawn,  and finally her left side became numb  as though paralyzed. Her speech  became thick and indistinct and she  could neither stand still nor sit  down. Two doctors.attended her,  but gave her no .benefit. The last  doctor who attended" her told me sho  would never get better. It was : at  this discouraging .time we decided to  givo her Dr. .Williams' Pink Pills.  After takings two boxes we could see  an improvement; she could sleep.bet-  ter nnd thc spasms were less severe.  Prom that" on she steadily grew better, and was as strong and healthy  a girl as you will And anywhere, and  she has not had the least symptom  of tlie trouble since." -  Dr.     Williams' Pink Pills   are   thc  THK BABY'S FIRST DANGER.  When a child first comes into the  world its hold upon lifo is"very  slight, and mny be, and often is,  broken by any one of several possible accidents. , Fortunately, nature  tries to take cam of and strengthen  this feeble grasp of existence.  Life at .first depends mainly on tho  immediate enlubiit'liniont of thc  breathing process. The lirst impulse  of some babies, born pessimists,  seems t-o bo toward a determined attempt ;it suicide.

The band boys returned Sunday  morning from their trip to the coast,  and report having spent 11 most enjoyable time. They were in attendance  at the New Westminster exhibition  on Friday, and,judging from the press  comments, made a very favorable  impression on the public. The New  Westminster Columbian says:  "The Revelstoke band," "which has  been organized for the last seven  years und enjoys the distinction in  the Up-country centre of being one  of the few such institutions which  .has survived-the ravages of time and  other influences which generally tend  to the destruction of things. The  band, for a young one., is an exceptionally good one and is composed of  fifteen pieces. Every member has  been trained in Revelstoke, and as  JjU Laj^tou ngLjmeriHi^y _ji^  lyhnve'ii" future before them Hs-a"  musical organization in this province.  , There are no professionals in its  j ranks, and, with the exception of two  nr three members, noiie had ever  blown an instrument till training  I was commenced in Kevelstoke, pre-  | punitory to the organizing of a band.  ] This is their first trip to the coast  i as a musical body, but now that they  I have found the way we hope to see  tbem often, and all  who  lieard  them  on the street and in : the exhibition  grounds Friday wish the boys the full  measure of success."

" Political  Life in Canada as it is aud as it Ought  to Be."  A Deceptive Watchword;  In the course of his opening campaign speech in the city of Toronto on  Tuesday, Oct. 1th. Hon. R. L. Borden, leader of the exposition in the  House of Commons and the man  whom destiny and the Conservative  party have chosen to become Canada's  next Premier said :  " I observe in reading the Globe  that a new watchword has been given  to thc people, which reads: 'Laurier  and the Larger Canada.' I had, however, been impressed with the fact  that Canada seems a little smaller  than it was when Sir Wilfrid Laurier  took, up the reins of government.  (Laughter). AVe know that after the  Alaskan boundary issue had been  decided to be given over I o arbitration,  Sir Wilfrid Laurier handed back the  whole question to tlie Mother Country,  yet in the. end he told us that the  whole fault in the matter was we liad  not larger treaty-making powers.  The true motto for the campaign  should not bo 'Laurier and a Larger  Canada,' but ' Laurier and a Larger  United States.'   (Applause).
