Developing- into one of the Richest Mines in B. C���������A Herald  Correspondent Visits the Property���������The New Strike.  Another big strike of high grade oro  was uuicle on the Silver Dollar group  lust week. As has been previously  stated in the Herald this well known  group is situated on Mohawk creek,  aliout 3i miles south east of Camborne, while in close proximity to the  south .lie the Beatrice and Silver  Crown properties upon*- which are to  bo. found some immensely rich gold  and silver bearing ledges. The Silver  Dollar group consists . of three full  claims and two fractions, viz.,rLittle  Johnny, Iron Dollar, Carbonate Hill,  Gillman fraction,"and Carbonate Hill  fraction," comprising iii ull about 175  acres, nearly all of: which is well  timbered. This property is owned by  tho Elwood Tin workers. Gold Mining  Company, of Elwood, Indiana, being  purchased by them some time ago  from the trustees of the estate of the  late Joseph Best, the original locator,  and the company are devoting their  energies, under the capable supervision  of Mr. J. A. Darragh, to a thorough  development of-the property. Up to  the present time fully $8,000 has been  expended on development work about  halt" of which was accomplished by the  late Mr. Best.  When the announcement was first  .made of this last and most important  |-strike a correspondent of the Herald  visited the pioperty with a view to  ascertaining the extent of the strike  and the intentions of the company  regarding future operations.  Since acquiring this valuable property development work has been  systematically and vigorously prosecuted by Mr. Darragh, manager for  the company, .with' great success  resulting in the "magnificent showings  which have been "l eported from time  jo"time in^.tliese columns. The work  consists of. three ' prospect tunnels,  open cuts and shafts.1 On the Carbonate Hill- fraction; a> tunnel has been  driven 45 feet, and-Jon- the- Gillman  fraction a tunneh';85'feet.r: The third  tunnel, 75 feet in;'length is a-crosscut,"  and after driftingifor^lOp.JfeeK.on" the  lead;- in __iwfiich*orenwas'-uucovered all*  the way, test's were made of the schist  and quartz, giving returns averaging  from $2.'40 to $15 to the. ton in free  gold. . By looking closely after the  schist in which'.the gold shearing  quartz is'embedded, high values are  also to be obtained. -. This fact is  clearly demonstrated in the workings  of all the best properties in the Fish  river camp.'  In one of the' open cuts recently  made on-the Iron' Dollar, in a southeasterly direction ��������� from where the  drifting operations are in progress, 20  inches of .high grade steel galena has  been exposed on the foot wall of the  lead. ' Some three feet., of splendid  looking quartz carrying high values in  free gold is also exposed on the adjoining lead towards the hanging wall.  Each panning bf this quartz, after  crushing in a mortar, showed a string  of colors that was a good indication of  ���������the'iminense richness of the ore.  Continuing in a south-easterly direction, towards- the Beatiice, splendid  showings of free gold have been  obtained at two other points.  The .work lately done clearly demonstrates the existence of another lead,  similar to- that exposed on the Silver  Crown and which was heretofore supposed to he the same lead. The new  lead running-in a westerly direction,  parallels that on the Silver Crown.  Thus four separate and distinct leads,  each~carrying"~high values~iiY"g6Id and  silver, have already been exposed on  this property, and two of the claims  which form part of this group, viz.,  the LittIe"7ohnny and Carbonate Hill,  have riot yet bean prospected to any  great extent; There is' overy "probability that when this is done additional  ore bodies will be discovered, as these  two claims arc well situated within the  highly mineralized zone on this mountain. - Taking this into consideration,  together with the splendid results  wliich.have already been obtained  from the work so far prosecuted, the  outlook for the Silver Dollar becoming  one of the richest mines in the Province, is very bright indeed.  The company have purchased a  compressor plant from the Rand Drill  Co. at Rossland, and a saw mill, both  of which-will be installed as soon as  the trail leading to the property has  lieen put in shape for the transportation^ the machinery. It is the intention of the management, before  definitely .deciding as to the method  of treating the ores, to have a  thorough ' mill test made. It is alto-  getberprobable.however, tfyat'a stamp  mill will shortly be erected for the  purpose* of treating the big bodies of  high grade gold ore now showing in  the different leads on the property.  From the business-like and practical  way. in which this property, has been  handled since being acquired by the  Elwood company, there is every reason to believe that before long the  property will be equipped with a complete and up-to-date plant necessary  for the,successful developing and mining of the rich ore bodies that have  recently been demonstrated to exist  on this .group. The Elwood Tin-  workers Gold Mining Co., and their  manager, Mr. Darragh, are to be  congratulated upon the highly satisfactory results- obtained so far on the  Silver Dollar group, and the Herald  is confident that in a comparatively  short time the "Silver Dollar will.be  shipping its rich bullion and galena  ores to the refineries and smelters and  thus give to the stockholders handsome returns for their investments,  and placing the camp among the largest producers of the precious metals iu  British Columbia, while at the same  timo it will - do as much to convince  the public of the richness of North  Kootenay as the Granby Mines have  done for the Boundary district. This  is not only the Herald's opinion but  is the view generally expressed by all  the mining men who are acquainted  with the property.  Ghastly Tragedy in Vancouver  About 10 o'clock Monday morning,  Joe Nucci, a.'woll known bootblack and.  gambler, shot and instantly killed 15-  year-old Daisy Oapella because she refused to marry him at once. Financial  troubles had aided,in driving'Nucci to  the point of desperation that made his  awful act possible. The child, for  she was no more,. was carrying her  youngest sister, a baby some six  months old, in her: arms when the  madman shot'her-through the head at  such close range' that the cloth of  her little round sailor cap was burnt  by the exploding powder.. The bullet  entered just below one ear and a slight  bulging of thc ball of the opposite eye  showed that it had passed or lodged  clo'-e behind it. Death must have  been instantaneous and as the girl fell  to the ground Nucci placed the muzzle  of the revolver to his right temple,  arid sent another bullet crashing  through his own brain. The first  bullet went through the sleeve of the  baby's dress. Nucci was 43 years of  ass-      ' ' '.'    r  BY DECEPTION  How Labour Legislation has  been Manipulated ��������� Utilising  Liberal Senators to Strangle  Bills���������Facts froni Records.  * a*i** **9** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** *  r i������i i^j ij^i i^i t^J 1,^1 'IJ,! ������j,i l;  ****** ***** ***** ***** itt ���������������������������   ***** a**** J  ,    IX* **fT 'tli'* *X      X      Ji     ������T*'X'"  A  OF CRIME  Is the Verdict Against the Liberal' Party in ��������� Ontario.���������North  ' Perth and' the Soo Seething  With Corruption  , Out of eight protests entered against  the return* of candidates elected to the  Ontario House of which three protests  are against the return of Conservatives  and five against the return of 'Liberal  members, only' Tour have come to  trial; so --tar, .two" Cor>servativ6s->and  two"Iiiberalsr with the'starliing result  that both- the Con"servative3-! have  been i-etained iu their seats and con-,  gratulated. by the judges, while the  two Liberals have been unseated for  corruption of a '��������� most scandalous  nature' The Liberals in North Perth  and the Snult Ste.

Hume & Co., for Guns,  Rifles and Amunition,  Sir William Mulock is by instinct an  aristocrat; in political-finesse a thinly  veneered democrat. However, he can  never hope to play the game of successfully hoodwinking the working  masses for any prolonged period, and  at the same time be hand in glove  with the employers of labour. He was  vouchsafed a great chance to distinguish himself as a practical legislator;  the will was there, but alas, the occasion demanded genius.' Sir William  when ^endeavoring^ to be dramatic in  parliament, is amusing, not impressive, for all who . have watched his  career or read the debates In tlie  House of Commons, are inclined to  question his sincerity, not so much an  opportunist as his leader, Sir Wilfrid  Laurier,;but quite willing to surpass  him, if possible, in political tergiversation. The Postmaster General and  Minister of Labour believes in Mulock.  thinks Mulock, reads Mulock, presents  bouquets to,- Mulock, and wonders  how theanterests of Labour ever  prospered while Mulock was in private  life. 'Naturally, amid the multifarious  possibilities of personal advancement,  the statesman was absorbed inthe  demagogue, arid the:trick of deceiving  labour.;; organizations soon became  transparent.: We propose discussing  the subject at; length, more: particularly because Sir. William Mulock recently "asked in the House of Commons "What have: the Conservatives  ever done for:the wprkinghian''" Had  the Minister even casually read of or  remeiribeied events dating from '72, he  would never have asked.;the question;  in short,' it seems' almost superfluous  to discussi"thetissue,j^yeVarid except to  prove how utterly ignoi'arit or' wilfully  deceptive:- Sir".'���������'William-Mulock is.

The  striking printers were-arrested,.hand-  cuffed andNescorted to jail, despite the  wide spread indignation manifested.  Who became their champions? 'Grits?  Liberals? .Not by any means. Robert  Beatty, editor of the Conservative  Leader,-, and Sir v John Macdonald, the  Conservative premier, who advised the  Governor-General to liberate the unfortunate victims,'finally repealed the  obnoxious statute and gave parliamentary sanction: to a measure conferring the right. of workingmen to  establish unions and regulate their  own business conditions;.  Again, for many years the products  of convict labour were' permitted to  corne.inlxwioinpetitioiiisWith^those of  tho honest artisan. The Hon. Alex.  Mackenzie, when Premier and Minister  of Public Works, from 1874 to 1878,  declared in the House of Co ininons:���������  "I have nn idea which is not clearly  defined, of employing TtfH lauouu of  CQNVipTS in parrying on the public  works- of the country. It is quite  possible   that  they  might be able to  MANUFACTURE THE GREATER PORTION  OK THE KOLLING STOCK ON THE RAILROADS   ABOUT. TO -nu CONSTRUCTED."  It remained for Sir John Macdonald,  Premier and leader of the Conservatives to declare it a penalty tp employ  copvict Iftbqur f,o compete against  honest tpil, "Prior to-Sir John coming  into power (1878), the Hon., afterwards  Sir, David ���������_ Mills, Mr. Mackenzie's  colleague defended his leader. He  said: . "Nothing could be more preposterous than arguments of the. lion,  gentlemen (Conservative speakers) in  this particular. ..They might just as  woll legislate criminally against the  introduction of emigrants into _ this  country..*'.,<If the conviota were taught  trades it, would bp a pragticivl advantage to thpiri,'-'when. tl^py went back to  fho cojpnjunitv," In other words, so-  called 'Liberals proposed to. offer a  premium.on criminal life, while the  industrious, thrifty artisan, was to be  hampered, at every point by the educated convict.  Now, as to Chinese. In 1875-6 a  resolution was moved by Conservatives purporting; to rest-riot Chinese  being employed ip constructing the  Can.adiap Pacific, A storm of objection was raised by the Liberals. The  Hon.- Alexander Mackenzie denounced  tho . resolution. He said : "I hope  the honourable gentlemen did not  really expect such a resolution to  obtain any support in this House, It  is one unprecedented in its character  and at variance with - those tolerant  IftWs. which afford employment and an  asylum to all who come into this  country, irrespective of colour, hair or  anything else." The Conservatives I  came into power," Sir John Macdonald J  favoured  restriction. of Chiqese,  at  BOURNE BROS.  Hay, Oats, Bran, Shorts, Feed Wheat,  Flour, Rolled Oats, Etc.  Bacon, Hams,  Eggs,  Groceries  and  Canned Goods, Etc., Etc.  ORDERS SHIPPED SAME DAY AS   RECEIVED  BOURNE BROS.

Tho then member for  Cariboo (Mr.  Thompson) pointed out  that  the   Chinese  were, as irgeneral  thing, criininally inclined.    Mr. Mackenzie,   leader    of    the   Opposition,  declared: "The  member for Cariboo  had  stated   that   there   were   many  criminals   amongst   the   Chinese,   including perjurers.     I  can get equally  bad cases in Canada, without going to  the Chinese.     My impression is, from  all   I  have  heard, that   the  mass of  Chinese   in    California,   are     better  behaved, as regards the observance of  law, than the samo number of whites."  This   then   is   the  Liberal     record  towards   the   Canadian workingman,  and   since   coming   into   power their  legislation in   the interest of  Labour  has   been   viitually a delusion and a  snare. ' When they passed a measure.  it was so framed thafc'ar'horse and cart  could   bo .driven   through it; or their]  friends   in   the   Senate   strangled' it.  When they appointed a Labour Commission   last  year,   a    judge   and   a  clergyman . were~ 'selected;   but'1   no'  labour representative, and   yet  these  so-called Liberals expect to receive the  votes-of the men  thej'   had   tried, to  hoodwink.-'-    ���������.',."' .   - -  -  The.trail of hypocrisy can readily be  followed, so'..far as the Dominion Gov-  er'iment's'doublc-dealing on the question of Labour organizations and  workingmen's associations, is concerned. When Sir William Mulock,  attained the posi tion* ��������� of~--a cabinet  minister, he suddenly manifested a  not badly dissembled sympathy for the  toiler. He had humbugged the electors by promises he never intended to  keep; pledges fervently uttered, only  to be strangled; hence why not a  similar policy with a view tow.-trds  consolidating a very important vote  and handing it over, to his party? Sir  William proved his unfitness forLthe  task, by his inability to properly estimate theaspirations of thc thoughtful,  reading, industrious and observant  moil he hoped to mislead. He outwardly espoused the cause of Labour,  professing to sympathise with its  conditions; but he at all times saw to  it tbat most of the members elevated  to "rcform'rthe Senate, were "'.uncompromising enemies of Labour legislation. Take for instance the initial  measure, 1807, for giving statutory  effect to a measure protecting artisan's  and others from an invasion of-foreign  workers.

The  company have now cub and  piled  on  tho river bank, between Carnes Creek "  and Stoney Point, some'three and one .  half million feet of logs of first class-  quality, which will be sent down  the  river to the mills at once and in fact  over a million feet is .already   in the  boom by this time.   During a recent  trip by a Herald reporter by the s. s.  Revelstoke,     an'   opportunity     was  afforded us of a visit to. the company's  camp, at Stonoy Point.-' The cbmpariy.  liave here fi-bcted large," comfortable-  and commodious accommodation   for  the employees of the camp and everything was, "found to   be *"in   first  class1,  shape.   The sleeping accommodation  for the 40  men.   now, employed, .was"  first'class, while the' boaitlirig. depart,-'  ment was all that could be "wished for.  The provisions sent up  are" tBe'verV"'  best Ihat can be secured oh the market  and the culinary department is i.i  the  care of an experienced chef aud assistant, ihe   table fare being, equal ac all  times to the best that can'be found in  the leading hotels of a town of city.

TROUSERS BUTTONS.  Later on, when the great calamity  of tlio admission of a commoner has  been declared, the talk turns naturally lo Winkler, tho innocent cause  of all this pother. Tho representative of his majesty arc  bombarded with questions, once  champagne lias loosened tho tongues.  "Hut, count, tor heaven's sake toll  ns. You must know something  nbout. him. Who is this Winkler?"  "Gentlemen," tlio adjutant said at  last, "all lho colonel and I know-  is what, his majesty has just told us.  Old Winkler i.s a factory owner."  They all felt as if n load has boon  lifted. Factory owner! This was  not much, and of courso could not bo  compared with tho social position of  a noble squire or a court ollicial,  but, after all, Krupp himself had  been nu fond only a factory owner,  and llio German emperor bad called  him friend before ull tho world. Yos,  thoy felt relieved until they saw that  the count was holding something  bnck, something relating to the factory owner. "What does tlie man  manufacture.? Guns or engines?"  "Neither of them. Trouser buttons." If a flash of lightning had  struck thorn they could not have recoiled morc suddenly, more horror  struck.    "Good  Cod!"   they said.  Presently the new man is introduced. The noble ollieers have been  bidden to moot their new comrade in  tho barrack yard. "Gentlemen," the  colonel says, "I have asked you to  meet mc in order tbat I may introduce our new comrade, "Lieut. Winkler.      If you  please,  lieutenant."  Lieut. Winkler advanced a step and  saluted by touching bis helmet,  standing in" the stiff, proscribed attitude, a figuro of medium height,  strong and slender. He had a good  figuro and looked extremely well in  the becoming gold embroidered uniform of the regiment, Tlie healthy  look on his young face���������he was * 27  years old���������witli the fair mustache,  and his clear blue oyes, suggested  energy ancl independence. Many a  man would not have been able' to  hide a certain nervousness at such a  moment, but Winkler's face remained  serenely quiet.  LOOK FOR RICH GIRLS.  The contrast between tho, young  commoner, with his innate tact and  modesty, bis sensible outlook/his  keen sense of honor and dignity, and  his aristocratic comrades with their  boundless conceit, their cynicism  concerning women and money matters, their gluttony and .-drunkenness;  is triking. Perhaps it is oven a little ������������������' overdone, and might be still  moro .convincing if painted in less  startling colors. After the absolute  wbrlhlcssno'ss' of the aristocratic  officers has beeu revealed in i- the  course of some-chapters shown up  in various ways, the author devotes  some' time to an explanation of the  usual-means adopted to escape from  the degrading impecunious- position  into whicli the large majority of  officers of his class find  themselves.  The one remedy towards which they  all look, and which they discuss with  a callousness wliich shows the depths  to which tliey-have sunk, is marriage  with a rich girl.

Among the many strangely named  stieels in Strassburg perhaps thc  most singular is that called "Whero  tho j J'^ox preaches to the Bucks."  There arc also Water Soup Streot  (Soupc a I'Eau), Lung Street.  Heaven Street and a host of others.  Some of t'ho names nro quite ludicrous and wo owo their existence to  a French official. When tlio French  took Strassburg from tho Germans  in 1602 they ordered this man to  translate all tho names of streets  from German into Frcnc'h.

The one lesson of the blanket was  sufficient to loach me the color, red.  Yellow was a different matter. The  nurse brought mo a cool drink. I  could recognize her by sight now.  Tho thing I saw in hcr hands I knew  to bo a tray after I had felt of it.  Suddenly T felt ,i thrill of disgust'.  "What is that thing on the tray?"  I asked.    "It makes me sick."  "it is a lemon. You said you liked  lemonade."  "Thon it is yellow. It, is the color  that  nauseates auo."  Any object close to mo looked tremendously large.

An old farmer, writing recently to  a railway company's head ofllce, nsked for rates, distances, time, and so  forth for many imporlnnt kinds of  freight over the principal linos. Tho  letter probed deep into trallic business; it was indicative of a keen  mind; plainly its writer, provided ho  got fair treatment, would bocomo a  valuable patron of the line.  So the railway company sont,"post  haste, -one of tlieir brightest young  traffic agents'to see him. The agent  got, off at his station and had to  walk fivo miles to reach his hou.so.  Arriving, with some disappointment,  at a smull farm, tho agent took  from hi.s pocket thc long list of-rates  that throe clerks had spent half thc  night in compiling, and he said to  the old man:���������  "I have come, sir, to answer your  recent letter in person.Hero, on  these papers, you will find each of  your questions treated in detail. May  we hope to do some business with  yon?"  The farmer loooked over the list  of answers with a grunt of satisfaction.  "You're from the railway company, eh?" he said. "Well, you  can't hope for business from me, but  I'm obligeid to you just tho same for  all this information. It's for iiy  son.

There's a small dinner  Party at the house, it scorns, on  Saturday   night.        Dreadfully      dull  affair,  but then,  of course "  Claud concluded by shrugging his  shoulders. ' This implied that a  young man witli financial expectations can cn'duro n good muny disagreeable things.  - Saturday arrived. As befits most  of tho traffic on the Great Southern  Railway, Claud's train reached Ilkington forty minutes late. Darkness liad already closed iu. Claud  leapt out of tlie carriage and hailed  a porter.  "Hi! Got my bag out of the van  A dark brown one marked C. A. in  large Tetters."  The porter--   vanisliodon  tlie  quest,  and Claud  set about securing a cab.  As usual,  the yard was empty,   but  h'e found one Just outside the station  and    Jumped    in.      Tho porter reappeared, trundling some luggage on a  trolley.  "Shall I put it on top, sir?"  "Please!  There you ore!"  "Thank ye sir.        Cabman    knows  where to  go?"  "Yes. Tell him to drive as fast  ao Ko likes."  Tlie vehicle passed* out of���������the station.  Miss Muria Sheppard lived three  miles out of Ilkington, in a largo,  gaunt, prim, old-fashioned residence,  curiously in harmony with her own  appearance and disposition. As the  cab stopped, Claud nervously cleared  his throat and-blow liis nose. Dozens  of previous visits in no way minimised his lack of ease in these august  surroundings.  A grand-looking footman came  down the steps and deigned to incommode himself with Claud's luggage.  "Shall I unpack your things as  usual, sir?"  "If you please! Here are my    keys.  Tlie usual room, I suppose, James?"  "Yes, Mr. Claud! Miss Slieppcard's  in  tlio drawing-room."  Tho young man  nerved himself for  tlio coming ordeal by hurriedly fum-  ���������    bling with liis necktie.   Tlien he turn-  -   ed  the handle    of the drawing-room  door.     A stately old la'dy rose from  a dimly-lit corner.  "Is tlint you,  Claud?"  - ��������� "Yes,  Aunt."  "I'm glad to sec you."  sented    an icy    clieek.  you?"  "Very well,  thanks."        o  "And your    people���������you liave  tliem well?"  "In   tlie  best  af  health."  "That's right.   "Now como an'd   sit  down and warm yourself, before you  go and take off your things."  For ten minutes there was an exchange of family news; then Miss  Sheppard glanced at tlie clock.  "Perhaps you would like to go>up  and drccs now, Claud. We sliall be  dining in half an hour."  Stifling a sigli of thanksgiving,  Claud passed out of his aunt's presence. At tlie top of tlie stairs tlio  footman awaited him. It might be  on optical "delusion, but certainly the  ordinarily demure James appeared  to bb smiling.  "Please, Mj". Claud," he began with"  hesitation,  "I'm afraid there's something wrong."  "Wrong, James!  Where?"  "If you'll step into your room I'll  show you,  sir."  -'    Claud followed tlie    man wilh curiosity.  On the bed in the room he was  ubout to occupy stretched a strange  array of garments. Two dresses���������an  evening one and a fancy costume of  most alarming hues���������kept company  "\vith"~a powder bo"x.~a_rdug(r~ pot,"  nnd a false wig. James coughed  discreetly  behind his hand.  "It didn't like to take anything  more out,  sir."  "Is this n joke, James?" Claud  spoke severely.  "Oh, no," sir!" replied tlio man,  straightening his features with' difficulty;. "It all came out of your  portiriantcnu."  "My port  Heavens, man,   wliat  do yoii mean?"  For answer James pointed to a  dark-looking object on tlio further  side of the bed. One glance at it  was sufficient for Claud.  "Good gracious, that's not minoI  Tliat's an  overland  trunk."  "I thought there seemed something  strango about it, sir. I had such  a lirefful trouble with tlie key."  "Most extraordinary! No wonder  the porter: mistook it in the dark.  It's marked C. A'., just like mine and  labelled for Ilkington. Whoever can  it belong to, James? There's no  mvpie anyw'lief'e."'  James took a discreet glance at  the articles in array before tliem.  The fancy costume, which' scorned to  bo a Geisha's,     was liis special    re-  f;ard. Outsido the illustrated week-  ics, which' found tlieir way down to  tlio servant's ball, ho had never seen  anything half so startling.  "Don't know, I'm sure, Mr, Claud'.-  Looks uncommon like an actress/'  rig-out,  don't It, Mr.  Claud?"  "Husli, James. My aunt would go,  of! into fits. Tlie other man���������woman  I mean���������must liavo got my bug in  exchange. Oli, it's1 a beastly awkward situation."  Ho sat down on tlie edge of the  bed, wondering wliat wits to bo done.  By tlio loss of his bug ho found himself without any personal eqiiipmont  for the evening, and to appear nt  dinner in tweeds was, in Ills aunt's  oyes, only a less heinous sin than to  cnt peas witli the assistance of one's  knife.  "Put the things back in the trunk  as carefully  as you can,  James."  "Yes,  sir."-  "Ancl���������oh, Jamos, you haven't got  n fairly decent dress suit you could  loud mo for tlio ovening, I suppose?"  "Yes, I liavo, Mr. Claud; least  ways it's my seooncf best one. But I  ain't quite your iiggor,  sir."  "Novor mind. I can pad a little, I  daresay.   Jt isn't very shiny?"  "Only at tho elbows! They will go  tliere."  "Right! Fotcli it along! You're u  good  follow,   James."  "Always glad to Kelp a gentleman  in  a difficulty,  sir."  "Thanks. I never thought of it,  but probably lho owner of Hint pretty costume is in a worse plight tlian  I nm." And us James proceeded on  his quest,    Claud    lidded to himself,  "Poor littlo girl! Wonder if sho  can act!"  # ���������       # ���������       * v. J  Miss Slioppurd's dinner-parties  wero small, select, ond poi'tenfbusly  dull affairs. On tho present occus'Ion  tho company was represented by n  I Dr. Culross, who tolkod of tho driest  subjects in the driest tones; liis son,  Ralph, studying for tlio Churcli and  witli an opinion of himself in no wny  warranted by, his abilities; and two  ladies, onu a Miss Sanderson, tlie  otiier hnr cousin, a youngish-looking  girl, whnsc name Claud, on being inr  troduced,  liad  failed  to catch.  When the time came for the gentlemen to join the ladies, Claud felt  distinctly relived. That monotonous clerical burr had got on his  nerves, and tho father, under tho influence ol port wine, had grown very  dogmatic. When Claud entered the  drawing-room he was glad to notice  a vacant seat boside thc fair unknown, and, stepping across, secured  it.  "I didn't catch your name, Miss���������"  "Armitage,  Mr.  Andrews."  "Ah, you have the advantage   ovor  me.      I ve been having such a    dull  time."  She-looked at him wilh laughter  in her eyes, and whispered :  "But they are very estimable peoplo."  "Maybe, but not my sort! Not  yours either, 1 fancy?"  "I cannot honestly say tliey are."  A deligntful mutual understanding  liad already been established between  tliem. Claud fell, tliat this dinner  party was going to prove endurable.  His aunt was at that moment summoned out of tho room; Dr. Culross  and his son were expounding the fiscal question to Miss Sanderson, who  was evidently trying desperately to  tako it all in.  "I'm glad I don't pose at being  clever,  Mr.  Andrews."  "Why?"  "Because if I did, I should require  to  be in tliat circle over there."  "You are good, Miss Armitage, to  prefer the society of poor unintellec-  tual little mo."  "You know I didn't moan that.  But I -think one soon finds one's affinities, 'don't you?"  "I'm suro of it."  Ho looked at hcr more .closely. A  pretty, fascinating girl, but Kow  dowdily dressed! Did sho not realise  that dress accomplished so mucli for  a woman? But sho was probaly poor.  She observed that moment tlio mis-  Jit of his dress suit and those dreadfully shiny elbows, whicli lie could  not ' keep out of sight., A man  should recongnise that a woman is  attracted by nico clothes. But, of  course, it was only an eccentricity  on liis part.  "I wonder how long wo shall be  left in peace, Mr. Andrews. Tho war-  faro is a wordy one over there. OK.  botlier! Here's my cousin coming  across."-  Under covor of a hotly contested  point between the two gentlemen,  Miss Sanderson had escaped.  "Please play us 'something, Clara."  "My music's  upstairs."  "Doi Miss Armitage! A little Clio-  pin would soothe us all," added  Claud.  "Well, if you really want me to:"  - She left the room in quest of    the  music.  Wlien James summoned Miss Sheppard out af tlie drawingroom, she  spoko to  him somewhat sharply :  "What is it James? No dispute in  tlie kitchen, I hope?"  "No,  ma'am!     A man  has called  We've hud other similar cases of bags  being stolen as tliey ar-3 put out of  Hie luggage vans, and now I think  we've caught thc thief. The porter  wiio wheeled the bag, and the cabman who drove him hero can both'  corroborate my evidence. I havo  called ta seo your nephew, and here I  wait until Iio chooses to appear."  Tlio objectionable person sat down  in Miss Sh'cppard's best favorite  chair.  "You nro either made or intoxicated," suid that lady with asperity  and somo loss of dignity. "I sliall  fetch my nephew to put you instantly  out of tiio house."  A minute later she sailed iuto lho  drawing-room and beckoned Claud,  Ifo enmo out, and nt a sign from lier  closed tlio door behind hiin.  "Yes, Aunt? You look pale. What  lins happened?"  "I may look pale, but I'm really  furious. There's a dreadful person  in tlio library wiio accuses you of  stealing n lady's trunk at Ilkington  Station to-night. Ho is ridiculous.  Will you como and speak to liim?"  In the dim light she Iind not noticed Claud's change of color. So the  mutter was discovered. Wns thero  any chance of braving it out?  "I'll come and speak to him," Iio  nervously snid.  But lie liad not taken ono step before a scream rang out from above.  Aunt and nephew looked at. one another.  "What's that?" she cried.

"I came up stairs for my music, as  you know, and mistook this room  for the one I had left my things in.

The furiV  ily had gathered around the breakfast table, when mother came in  and said Harvey would not be down,  ns ho had taken cold, and hnd some  fever, and therefore would not ��������� bo  ablo to go out with his bunch of  sheep,  writes Mr.  It.  W.  Davidson.  "I nm sorry to hear that," said I.  "I had intended going to town today to get that now harness, so  Jack could break thoso bronchos, and  get them handy before the haying  season, but I can put that oil until  some other time, mid I will laJco  charge of Harvey's sheep until ho  gets well."  So after breakfast I went out  and whistled for Fido, tho littlo  shepherd dog, who came running up  with a surprised look on his face at  such an unusual call. But after I  hod told him that Hnrvcy was not  well this morning, and he ancl I  would havo to look after tho sheep,  ho put his noso to the dinner pail  to make suro that the dinner was all  right, and being told that thoro was  enough for us both, his face brig'htcn-  ed up ancl ho turned and led the way  to the sheep sheds.  Arriving at tho sheds I threw open;  'tho wide doors, but tho s'heep seeing  a stranger before, them, wero timid;  they stood looking at mo in wonder. I turned to the "little dog, and  said: "What will wo do'now, Fido?"  and by t'he way of an answer, he-  passed quickly in at the door, and  up one side of the.shed, as close to  the wall as possible, until he reached  the far end of the shed. Then the  flock gave way for hiin. Fido walked back and forth behind '.them until  near the 'door, an old ewe with a  small lamb - turned and with a  threatening look, and stamping her  feet, disputed Fido's right to follow them. But when she had approached dangerously near, tlio little  dog gavo a short, sharp little bark,  anel that took tho courage all out  of tho old ewe and sent her scampering off after the flock with the littlo lamb following close at hor heels.  .Nothing- unsuual occurred during  the day.

But tho willow  called to it lo tako heart, saying,  'Clasp your tender tendrils in my  bark and hold on to me." and tho  stranger did so.  Day b.v day it grew in strength  and beauty, wrapping its soft, green  limbs around lho old willow. One  day a great mass of buds showed  themselves amongst this green foliage  and tho bamboo sneered, crying,  "What aro those ugly lumps that aro  now coming amongst your loaves?  Is it a plague that you havo brought  so near mo?" But tho next day  tho sun shone on the buds and they  burst open, ancl the old willow was  ono great blaze of glory from the  ground .right up to its topmost  height  That night tho man -who owned tho  ground said to his workmen: "Clear  a space around the old willow; cut  clown nnd burn all thnt is in thc  way; for the gods have sent us this  lovely thing, and we must protect  it."

"What was the blunder 'i  Simply   that   the   promoters   of   the  Grand Trunk Pacific demanded bettei  tjrms: although, it must be   remembered,   Sir  AVilfrid Laurier. from his  place   in    parliament    bad,     several  months  before   (September   1003), declared   that   unless   the  measure wa.s  -   sanctioned   by   parliament   then,  the  transcontinental railway would riot be  built, or at least  the pioject would be  in jeopai dy! "Now, today is the time.'"  .   -Since   then   one     year   has   elapsed.  Since   then,   sweeping   changes have  been   made   in the contract, and new  legislation   has   passed.      In January  last   Sir   AVilfrid   and bis newspapers  insinuated   that   tbe Government desired to submit   to the  people a rejection or approval of a policy involving  =^t!ie-cxiKM!dit-ni'&-of-SlflO,-'j������')X!*S).==D������r-  ing  the session  of parliament, closed  last   month,   the    amended   scheme,  costing fully   S170.t!''.io,0.7,X wa.s  forced  through   the   House, and  then it wus  announced   that the Grand Trunk Pacific   was   11 M'iiviy.     Sow. there ,'ii-e  seini-ollk-ial   intimations that .Sir Wilfrid    Laurier   lias   not  finally ih.-cidt.-d  upon   a   general   election,   while  the  Liberals are making all their arrangements for a campaign!    What does it  mean?     Are tlie free and independent  electors   to   bc chained lo Sir Wilfrid  Laurier's   chariot   wheels?     Are they  to be humbugged  and bamboozled by-  political tricksters/     liven litis might  - be tolerated; but  there i.s a more serious phase of the question: the business  aspect.     It is most  unfair, uiijtisl and  unpatriotic   for   any   Government  to  keep   thc   country in  suspense; it injures   business,   hampers    trade   and  creates a  spirit  of  unrest and uncertainty.    In short, it is a crime for any  government   to   adopt   a     policy    of  "jockeying"   their   masters.      It   is a  misdemeanor which the electors sliould  punish,   upon   the   first   opportunity,  The truth is the people should demand  a statutory  date  for Uie  meeting of  Parliament   and   should   also    insist  upon    a    law    requiring reasonable  potice before a  dissolution   of Parlia-  It. has been  a   favorite axiom,  one  .   that so  long as tho western  country  was  accorded a, few  scattering  Government  favours, a closely  pruned   nu 111 ber of  items in tbe   Kstitnates  made   by  the  Dominion  Finance   "Minister���������here  a  public building, tliere a dredge,   elsewhere   a   dock   or some   other  local  requirement���������that the peoplo did   not  care   what   become   of   the   millions  voted to   tbe east.    There,  may  have  been   some   truth   in   that,   but   the  present  linancial   position  of Hritish  Columbia   lias    prompted     observers  a-id taxpayers to  think, sum   up  the  pablic expenditures ancl decide that  a halt sliould be called. But even in  the ICast notes of alarm are being  sounded by tliose who bave carefully  watched the trend of public expenditure and who realize tliat there is  very clangorous element in tbis widespread Government extravagance.  For instance, the Farmer's Association���������a non-political body, rept-e-  Senting-=-sixlx^coiYsti���������^  Province of Ontario, recently held  its  springs into activity the moment tbat  the track, so jointed as to form a continuous electric conductor. Midway  under the forward part of tho engine  is hung tlio working instrument, an  electrical apparatus enclosed in a  square case or jacket, occupying a  cubic foot of space. Tbo instrument  is connected with a contact shoe  which slides along the third rail, and  by wire with a telephone and electric  alarm bell in the cab of the locomotive  and 11 red incandescent lamp, which  is lighted by the same impulse tliat  rouses tho alarm bill inlo action. A  further improvement of the device  sets tbe. electric brakes on the engine  ot- entire train simultaneously witb  the alarm signal wliich sounds the  bell and lights tho red lamp. The  apparatus is so adjusted and arranged  that the engineer can at any moment,  by touching a lover, satisfy himself  that, it is in full working condition.  In practice tlie same warning  signal  is sounded upon every engine equipped  with the  apparatus which   is  nn   the  same track ai.d within  the prescribed  radius���������a kilometre or a  mile,  a.s Unease may   bo���������from   the   engine and  train which cause the obstruction.    If  a semaphore  signal   bo falsely set  aL  safety the train may run past it into a  block   or   section   in   whicli   another  engine   is   hulled   or    moving,    witb  perfect security tliat warning   will   be  givtn   in   ampU-   time   to   prevent  a  collision under any and all  conditions  of darkness,   fog,  storm  or  mistaken  instructions.      The invention puts tbe  engineer of every  train   into instantaneous   touch     with   other     trains,  switchmen,  and  station and crossing  keepers   in    his     neighborhood,   and  keeps ever  before  his eyo and ear an  OTEL  W.

Keep a vow registered that the nicm-  bei- of Parliament who gives his pledge  to vote for ccftaiii ���������'principles,. then  deliberately breaks his word, would  never again receive your vote and  influence."  The key note" of common sense is  struck, when the 'President"'of an  .-issouation, sucli as flint referred to,  calls upon all honest men to repudiate  any member of Parliament, who having pledged himself to vote for certain  principles, afler being elected, deliberately violates pledges, breaks his word  and turns the cold shoulder to tliose  wiio confided iu liim.

The  Hus.-iiin Government has obtained  permission from the inventors to test  the device in actual service on the  new military lines in Sibei-i.-i.

So by degrees the incidents recorded in the last, chapter  faded gently from men's minds, until  at length they ceased to occupy any  prominent position therein, and harmony was once more restored. New  topics of conversation arose  to ban-  crows. To thosi: who owned cattle  not quito up to tho mark, it was  doubly provoking to witness from a  distance, becoming with each mile  morc and more enforced, many a  truly lirst-class run. Tho wise  sportsman was he who dissembled  and shielded the failing powers of  his horse from universal discovery.  An excuse was easily found���������a lost  shoe, a train to catch, or telegram  to send off, were sufliciont to cover  a timely retreat. Hut this wot weather, greatly us it was disliked by  the majority, suited the Duckling exactly.

After an unusually line run, in which  ho had covered himself with -glory,  Kate Browser, wet to the skin, but  'greatly elated in spirit, found herself riding in t'he direction of Fox-  ington, with Colonel Clinker as lier  companion.  They now usually rode home together, and it had become quite a  recognized thing that thoy -should do  so, while during the many miles  they had  covered  side by side     they  ish the old, for oftentimes  the- more .,  eagerly a subject is discussed, tho hnd attained n very confidential and  more liable is it to become exhaust- ������������������n*i-*.te looting.

By-and-by the lady appeared, quite  unsuspicious, from the inner recesses  of tho wood, whero sho had been  ploughing up and down through a  sea of mud, and perceiving Colonel  Clinker, "Mrs. Forrester, Mr. Mc-  Grath, and Kate standing talking together closo to the gate by which  she gained egress, said with impudent  assurance���������  "Good-morning, Mrs. Forrester;  good-morning, Miss Browser, morning,  Colonel  Clinker."  The two ladies returned her greeting with a frigid stare and, never  moved a muscle by way of recognition, but Jack Clinker made liis  horse pace one step in advance, and  sternly fastening his grey-blue eyes  on "Miss Palliscr's small twinkling  ones, said, with a, cutting dignity of  manner���������  "Madam, we, the members of Sir  Beauchamp Lonard's hounds, beg to  offer ������������������ our congratulations on your  literary talents, but at the same  time we decline the honor of your  further acquaintance." '���������'.  The cat evidently was out of the  bag, and "Miss Palliscr knew .' tlie  game to bo at an end. ~*"Sho turned  ghastly pale and her thin lips quivered with tho mortification and regret attendant upon unwelcome discovery.  She never said a single word in reply, but she turned her good hunter  sharply nway with a quick jerk of  her powerful wrist and set his head  straight for home, although at that  very moment the hounds were giving  tongue in covert, and a fox had just  been viewed away over tho nearest  "field.

The roads were  ankle-deep  in  rich  brown  mud,    and  thc brooks  and  rivers  in the neighborhood came swirling down charged  with all  sorts  of refuse in such   rapid torrents that in many cases they  broke through their banks and flooded  all  the    meadows     and  low-lying  ground,  so  that, acres upon acres of  water met the eye in overy direction.  Hunting    people    grumbled, left    all  considerations     of    personal  appearance at home,  arrayed themselves in  covert-coats,     comforters,   pot   hats,  and nondescript waterproof garments  of    every    shape, and    size, prior to  splashing     through     the  treacherous  moisture     and     resisting     a   further  downfall;     while  many   of  the     less  enthusiastic,      or     more     luxurious,  either  'hurried  up  to  the" "Metropolis  under pretence of witnessing.tho    last  new piece at    the Gaiety,   or stayed  at home reading French novels  of a  spicy nature and smoking long cherry-wood     pipes,     declaring     hunting  under  such     circumstances   was    not  "good enough." and reiterating with  more force than originality the well-  known     saying  about     the    folly  of  making "a    toil of your  pleasures."

"And you want me to come and  look on?" She put the question in  a subdued voice, for her heart was  boating  fast at   the  very thought.  "Would you think it very conceited  if I said that I did?"

Kate was fond of her theories, and  had all a girl's enthusiasm for high  and noble aims in life; and although  he invariably laughed at her remarks at the time, vowing they were  too highly pitched, ho often ultimately adopted her views; whilst she  learnt daily to recognize more and  more tho inherent goodness and kindliness of his disposition, nnd to look  to it with a perfect trust, which far  greater talents might possibly have  failed to inspire.  "I'm always asking favors of you,  "Miss Browser," said Colonel Clinker,  as they subsided into a walk, after  a long, steady jog', during'wliich'neither of them 'had uttered more than  an occasional fragmentary exclamation ; ' 'I want you to do mc one  now."  ��������� "1 should say it was the other  way about," returned Kate, ducking  her head so as to allow a small  stream of water to escape from, the  brim of her pot hat. "What is it?  Nothing very terrible I hope?"  "Oh no, not at all. Put I want  you to come to Sandown next week.  The races are on Thursday and Friday.

"Ko,  do     you'   mean     through  You never mentioned it bo'*1  of  your nature a similar one?"  "Pon't be so silly," giving the  Duckling's rotund sides a little impatient kick with the heel. "How  else arc we to amuse ourselves when  we to up to town?"  .. "Why, we'll go to a theatre together on tho lirst night, races again  the following day, and catch thc  eight o'clock special back, which will  land us safe and sound at Foxington  somcevhoro about ten thirty p.m.  Wliat do you say to thc programme?  Does it please your majesty?"  "Vcry much indeed, if only it can  bo carried out."  "Why do you say 'if?' There nro  no insuperable difficulties to bo overcome?"  "Insuperable, no���������difficulties, yos.  To begin with, nice things never do  como olT according to our anticipations: nnd secondly, I doubt very  much if Jrnry, who i.s so strong on  tho proprieties, will consider you and  "Mr. McOrath, sufliciont chaporones  for two young ladies at u public  theatre."  "Oh, bother tho chnperone! Can't  you raise a placid old woman somewhere?"  "What a disreslioctfiil way of talking!"  exclaimed Kate with* n. laugh.  "Do  you  mean  to say  the     whole  thing is to be knocked on the   head  for such nonsense?"  "I didn't say that; anyhow, I  promise to talk tho matter over  with Mary whon I got homo, and soo  how best the outing can be managed.  You know," playfully, "I don't dare  no anything without consulting Mary  Whitbread. She prevents my tumbling into no end of scrapes."  Tell Miss Whitbread /rom me  that Mr. Grnliaine says he will go  if she does."  J'Sow that's nasty of you, trying  to gain a mean advantage, and I  shan't tell her any such thing."  " 'Pon my sou], I believe the Chir-  per's most awfully spooney. I do  indeed, Miss Browser, and it ' would  bo only charitable to give the young  people a chance. The Chirpor is  not half a bad fellow."  "Since when, may I ask, have: you  developed t'heso match-making propensities?"  "Oh, I don't know; not very long.  This winter I  think."  "Thon if tho habit be so recently  acquired as all that, you will not  probably find much difiiculty in discontinuing it," said Kate, with a  mischievous spirit upon hor. "I hate  match-making. No good ever comes  of it." Sho was thinking of ...that  melancholy attempt at match-making  of her Uncle Campbell's. ������������������.'Presently  sho added after a slight ..pause, "If  Mr.' Grahamc really cares for Mary,  as you say, he is free to speak to her  of his own .accord, and interference  from.a third party is as unnecessary  a.s it is judicious."  Now when a man makes a suggestion, even in fun, and finds:, that  suggestion accepted with serious, disfavor, ho is apt to draw in his  horns liko a. sensitive snail, arid feel  rather small. Colonel Clinker cleared his throat once or twice, and  said'testily���������  "I beg your pardon, Miss Browser.  I'm sorry I spoko. I presume you  will give up all idea of going to  Sandown,  then?"  Hs sat quite straight up in the  saddle, and looked steadily, out before him at the driving rain. It was  clear to his mind, she had no wish  to go, and therefore she should not  sec that hc cared one way or the  other. It had been a silly fancy on  his part, not wholly' free from vanity, desiring she should witness  Snow/lake's success. His victory  ��������� was a matter of indifference to-Miss  Browser. After all it was but natural,   and   least  said  .soonest  niend-  I FOR FARMERS!  was at  that moment.

Plainly speaking, tho horso is  about the most useful of any animal. Man's best helper, and for  this reason hc should bo givon tho  best of enro. Think of him ns you  would of yourself. You know your  own habits nnd needs, t'hen if you  havo iv horse you should hnve a  thorough knowledge of hi.s habits  and needs;  The first thing to learn is proper  feeding and watering, and in tho  first rules ������re n yularity, common  senso and a judgment of the kind  and amount of food to give. Thc  horso is the best judgo. of the amount  of water.  After     watering     feed     the    bulky  food,  such as hay,  leaving tho grain  or mass foods  until  last,   remembering that tho amount of work a horso  does makes a  dilTeronco in his appetite.       Ho  should  be  fed  with     the  object, of supplying heat and muscle  or strength in view and not to   put  on abundance of fat.    Tho horse that-|  is  confined  or  staboled  and .has     to  worl: at all times cannot, of course,  get    natural  food,     thut is grasses.  Therefore ho    resquires a nourishing  food.    Thero nro mixed foods on  tho  market nnd one or two "of them   are  excellent to  uso in your feeding and  thoy nro safe.    Hay. grass, oats, barley corn,  beans, rye, pud's,  bran,  linseed   carrots,     turnips,   apples     and  potatoes are the general foods. Oats  is tho best grain food, next is corn,  and they aro    improved  to  a   great  extent if fed crushed.     Of tho latter,  however,   too  much  is  not  good,   as  it  produces  little  hard muscle     arid  supplies heat and fat.     The     season  makes a difference when feeding corn.  As  stated  it  induces  heat;   therefore  more should be fed in winter than in  summer.  Your horse should have pure water  given from a clean bucket or trough.  Ico water should never be given, and  in winter water should bo heated to  TAKE THE CHILL OFF.  Pefore starting on a journey a horse  must have a good drink, but'.during--'  the journey ho should bc given water only in small quantities, as: he  is liable to sickness if allowed to  drink too much: or while in a heated  condition. , Oatineal-s.watcr is very  beneficial to a tired or exhausted  liorse,  A horse is like ourselves. We have  our likes. The first thing in the  morning we want a drink. So with  thc horso. Know in's wants. Ho  should be watered early in the morning, then again about twenty minutes  before each meal.  You like good wholesome food.  Don't give your horse any old sort  of grain. Feed good hay; in quantity according to the size of the horse  arid - ii. the amount of. work ho is  required to do. Try about thirteen  to eighteen or nineteen pounds and  see how he likes it. Note results.  Bran mixed with cut, feed daily is  good.  The time for feeding is between  five and six in the morning;, then: at  noon, und again between six and  seven in the evening, making the  evening meal the heaviest. Cooked  feed is not good and will cause trouble, as will tlio feeding of a tired  or. heated horse, ' like ourselves.  Would you liko'to come from your  labors and sit down to your meal  in a heated or tired state? No. You  would take a rest first. The same  is true with your horse. Allow him  to cool oIT first and then colic and  indigestion will be prevented.  The food should always bo served low especially hay. Green feed  should be fed with the greatest  kind  of care.  We like luxuries, and a change���������  well, apples, carrots and so forth  are luxuries for the horse and thoy  will not hurt him; ho likes them for  a change, while a piece of rock salt  always in roach will work wonders  for him. If possible let him have  a'iterL-iiiinute. ..run-in*a -pasturo^evcry-  e\ cuing.  All in all your horse to bo good  and well must bo treated well, and  nt this season especially, when ho is  so liable lo colds, chills and liko  diseases, caused by weather changes;  so it would bo well to watch your  surroundings closely and do for him  what you would do for yourself.  Give, him good enro.  their places. Tho eggs from old  hens nre larger than thoso from pullets, but the latter are better layers,  and you are after numbers more than  size. When you prepare your eggs  for market, seo to it tliat thoy aro  packed with care; and havo them  uniform in size and color, ~ Look for  customers who can afford to pay a  fancy price, and give them a fancy  article. That is tho way to moko  money out of your hens.  TAINTED MILK.  Soon wo will hear much complaint  from tho customers of milk products about taints in milk. The  dairyman's difficulties begin when he  is obliged to rectify this trouble. In  nine cases out of len the cause of  bad or tainted milk is due to thc  dairyman's neglect in handling his  dairy. Dr. Clei'ber, tho Swiss scientist, gives the following causes of  bad or tainted milk:  1. Poor, decayed fodder, or irrational methods of feeding.  2. Tool', dirty water used for  drinking water or for tho washing  of utensils.  3. Foul air in cow stable, or tho  cows lying in their own dung.  4. Lack of cleanliness in milking;  manure particles  on  udder.  5. Keeping tho milk long in too  warm poorly ventilated and dirty  places.  0. Neglecting to cool the milk  rapidly,  directly after milking.  7' Lack of cleanliness in tho-enfb  of the milk, from which cause tho  greater number of milk taints arise-  8. Poor  transportation   facilities.  0.  Sick cows,   udder diseases,  etc.  , 10.  Cows being in heat.  11. Mixing fresh and old milk in  tho snmo can.  12. Rusty tin pails and tin cans.  The abovo causes scorn to bo pretty  clearly given and cover in a comprehensive, yet concise, manner the general causes of taints in milk. We  trust that those of our readers who  aro having trouble with taints in  thoir milk will read the above causes over-;,carefully arid profit by tho  suggestions  they contain.  31  EMBRYO  ADMIRALS.  How Lord Charles Beresford. Trains  His  Officers.  Lord Chnrles Beresford has introduced into the training of the Channel squadron new* methods especially  adapted for modern war.  When at sea, every morning from  7.30 to '8, evolutions of the squadron" aro'.. conducted, not by the captains of thu respective ships, but by  tho. officer, of the watch; This teaches them to handle ships: and to learn  to read thc signals without resorting  to the signal, book.  A fow years ago it was rare for  any oflicer or yeoman of signals to  be able to read a hoist of flags without recourse to tho signal dictionary, lt is duo to tlie persistence of  Lord Charles Beresford that tho  knowledge of signals has extended  throughout thc fleet" to such an extent that no less than a minute to  a minuto und a. half is saved in the  execution of some evolutions. The  valuo of this saving of timo may  mean tho dilTeronco between winning  and losing a battle.  In tho Channel squadron each captain; in turn takes .charge, of squadrons, : thus) .learning to handle a fleet.  Hitherto no captain lias begun to  lenrn the A B C of an admiral's duties,until he hoists his own flag.  Under the Beresford system of  training each captain in the Channel squadron becomes a trained' admiral, and when the time comes to  hoist his . own *3ng he will bo efficient for the performance of his duties instend of having to learn tliem.  Much practice in evolution and  turning movements is carried on at  night with and Without lights.  As regards tbs men, tho Channel  fleet is virtually a training squadron, ns the lower deck' hands are  changed every six months. From  this cause the drills arc necessarily  constant and stevore, but the material turned out is of the best. .The  squadron was never in a higher state  of efficiency than is the case to-dny.  : ���������������     ���������  TAKING IT MACK.

Learning to Walk on a  "Geta" ia  An Exceedingly Difficult  Process.  Tho Japanese shoes, or "geta," ns  they are called, aro ono of the singularly distinctive features of Japanese lifo which will strike tho observer with wonderment ns soon as ho  sees them looming along tho roadway, or hears them scraping tho  gravel with nn irritable squeak that! - ;  makes his very nerves shudder. Nnv-  orthelcss, awkward though tho  tflioes appear, thoy arc of a kind constituted to make feet ns hard a*)  sheet iron, and ankles as strong aO  stool  girders.  Tho shoes nro divided into two  varieties: tho low shoo is called tho  "koinagcta," and is only used when  tho roads aro in good condition. Tho  high shoes, named "ashida," nro  worn when the wen Cher i.s rainy ana  tho roads nro muddy. Both kinds  have a thin thong attached to tho  surface to secure them to the foot',  wliich aro therefore not covered aa  if they woro in shoes, but aro left'  exposed to atmospheric conditions.  Tho "komngeta" resemble somewhat ihe Lancashire clog, and their  construction merely entails the carving of a block of wood to the proper,  size. Tho "ashida," however, ara  of more 'complicated design. They,  have two thin pieces of wood, about'  three inches 'high, at right angles to  the soles, and occasionally, in the  case of priests or pilgrims, only ono  bar  attached.  Some of the "geta" worn by little  girls are painted in many colors, and  others have a tiny bell hanging from  n hollow place at the back, which, ns  it tinkles in a mystic way, heralds  the approach of children. ThosupelV  ior makes aro covered with mats,  MAIJB OF PANAMA.  The highest price amount to about'  10 yen or ������5, while the'cheapest'.' is  less than 10 sen, or a few cents; but  then the "geta" will not last longer,  than a month, and onco out' of repair can never bc mended.  Learning to walk on a "geta" is  an exceedingly difficult process: Indeed, it is,far easier to' acquire  skating or stilt walking: -The-.average child in Japan takes about two  months before being able to move  along on the national footgear, and  the littlo ones repeatedly slip from,  tho wooden blocks, falling to the  ground, which seems to their liiina-  tu.ro imaginations a considerable distance beneath them. Although foreigners usually tako with readiness  to the customs of Japan, thoy aro  absolutely unable to manipulate the  perilous "geta."  A curious story is told of a Sun  Francisco 'merchant.', who., was 'invited  to attend a fancy dress ball. Ho  thought it would be quite the correct thing to attend in Japaiies.0  costume and wrote to a friend in  Yokohama to send a complete suit of  tho costume of a gentleman of high'  class. On receipt of thc costume ho  was immensely surprised at its ex-  tcusivo variety. He mastered all tho  intricacies of the flowing,: robos, but!  when he unearthed ��������� the "geta" ho  was completely at a loss to understand its use. Having only just!  arrived in the country, and not being over observant, the had omittod  to notice the foot arrangements of  the people. Aftei*'much, earnest consideration, ho was suddenly seized  with a brilliant idea. -"Ah," ho exclaimed in his desire to extol everything Japanese, "this wooden block  has got a very lovely shape, if is  very beautifully carved and artistic.  Therefore, it must bo a_kind of decoration to be worn on the shoulders  like epaulettes." And so' the merchant went to-the ball, with: a  "geta" on each shoulder instcad of  on each foot!  SOME PARENTS  allow their children to play barefoot'  in the streets, but when going out  with their elders, or paying visits,  it is essential that every ono, from  the smallest to tho tallest, must  mount the wooden clog, and propel  themselves in this odd fasliion. Tho  dislike of the Japanese children for  the "activity"^bf "outddbr-"ga"riTes��������� is to-  be mainly attributed to the awkward  cncumbcranccs with wliich their little foot are loaded. For' instance,  ono seldom sees Japanese children  gambolling in open playgrounds ���������  thoy havo yet to learn the feverisH  pleasures of "hide and seek" or  "rounders," While sueh a thing as  top spinning or football never obstructs the roadway.  Singular superstitions aio associated with the "goto," which at  times nro decidedly useful. _AVhen a  (host desires that a too attentive  caller should depart he induces some-^  body to burn moxu, which: hns a pe-"  culiar odor, upon his shoes, which'  are outsido the door. The guest will  immediately, take the hint, and .simultaneously' his leave. When a thong  of o "geta" is accidentally severed  on the return from the visit to a  sick: person a firm belief exists that  the patient must die.

This is a now disease, or rather a  ���������newly discovered disease, which has  boon considerably discussed of lato  in the medical world. It is an interesting' affection, nnd its discovery  lins served to clear up many puzzling  points in relation to typhoid fever.  Originally typhus and typhoid fevers  wero thought to be ids'.-.tir.ai, but  early in the lust century tilota observers detected certain difference*! in  the symptoms which served to mark  two groups of cases, und noon they  found that they really liad to do  with two distinct diseases���������typhus  and typhoid fevers. Now, nearly ono  hundred years later, they find that  thore aro two typhoid fevers, but the  distinction in this case lies less in  differences in the symptoms than iu  tho fact that tho microbes associated  with  the two  diseases differ.  Tho newly differentiated is called  paratyphoid fever, and the germ  associated with it tho paratyphoid  bacillus. Although typhoid" fever  occurs as a. rule but onco in the same  person, ono attack conferring an immunity'which lasts for the rest of  life, there have seemed to be so many  exceptions that some authorities  have ovon doubted the existenco of  any rule, and havo assorted that second attacks- of tlie disease arc common. But these exceptions are easily explained now, for it is likely  that an attack of typhoid fever will  not "protect against a subsequent exposure to paratyphoid infection, aud  vice versa.  Tho symptoms differ but littlo from  thoso of typhoid fever, and often it  is possible to make an absolute diagnosis only by means'of blood test.  Tho malady begins with thc usual  loss of appetite, headache and muscle-ache, and out-of-sorts feelings  common to all beginning fevers. The  fever comes and goes, being higher in  tho evening, but is not so regular in  its up-and-down movements ns in true  typhoid*"*"!'!!������ tongue is coated, some  gurgling is heard in tho bowels when  pressure is mado in the right groin,  nnd there is almost always some  diarrhoea. Tho spleen is enlarged,  and there is often an eruption like  that of typhoid fever. There may bo  sore throat at tho start, and: a  cough  is common.  The disease lasts about three weeks  rind there may be relapses, as in  true typhoid. It is' apparently less  dangerous than-typhoid, the mortality being only between three and four  per cent, instcad of between fifteen  and twenty. The treatment is practically tho ' samo in both disorders,  consisting chiefly in good nursiiig-  and in combating possiblo complications.���������Youth's  Companion.  HOW' MUCH TO EAT. .  How shall'oue terminate how much  food to eat? Let your sensations decide, lt must be kept in mind that  the' entire function of digestion .and  assimilation is! carried on without  conscious supervision or concurrence.  It should : be'entirely unfclt and -'unknown, excepting by the feeling  which    accompanies    and follows its  : normal  accomplishment.  Satiety is bad. It implies a sensation of fulness in tho region of the  stomach, and that moans, that too  much food haa: been taken. The exact correspondence, in a hoaltliy animal, between , thn .^anpetite and : the  ���������''���������mount of food required is extraordinary.  As a rule, the meal, unless oaten  very slowly, should cease before the  appetite is entirely satisfied, because  it little time is required^for the outlying organs and tissues to foel tho  'effects''of" the food that has been ingested. If too little has boen taken,  it is easy enough to make it up at  the next meal, and the appetite will  be  only    tiie    better,     and tlie food  ; more  grateful.  No one was ever sorry for having  involuntarily eaten too little,- while  millions    every    day   repent    having  :  oa ton too   much.    'It   has been said  **. that the great lesson homoeopathy  taught tho world was this: That,  whereas physicians have been in the  habit of giving the patient the largest dose he can stand, they liavo been  led  to seo  that    their  purposo     was  ���������bcttor-subserved-by���������giving.,;.him the.  smallest dose that would produce  tho desired effect.

GIUSEPPE   LAPPOUI  PHYSICIAN*      TO      THE      POPE  PRAISES    DR. WILLIAMS  PINK PILLS7~    ���������  In Pour Cases of Anaemia Their  Effects Were so Satisfactory that  He Will   Go on Using Them.  Dr. Lapponi, whose skill preserved  tho life of the late Pope Loo XIII to  tho great ago of 92, and to whoso  care the health of the present Pope,  His Holiness Pius X., is confided,  has written the remarkable letter of  which tho following is a translation :���������  "I certify that I have tried Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills in four cases of  the simple 'Anaemia of development.  After a fow weeks of treatment, th'o  result came fully up to my expectations. For that reason I shall not  fail in tho future to extend tho usta  of this laudable preparation not only in the treatment of other morbid  forms of-the.category of Anaemia or  Chlorosis, but also in cases of Neurasthenia and  the like."  DR,   GIUSEPPE   LAPPONI,  Dr.  Giuseppe Lapponi, Physician   to  the  Pope,    who   has  written  a  letter in praise of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for  Pale Peoplo.  It would be impossible to .exaggerate the importance of this opinion.  Dr. Lapponi's high official position  places his professional competence  above question, and it is certain  that he did not write as above without weighing his words, or without  a full sense, of the. effect his opinion  would have.  The "simple anaemia of development" referred to by Dr. Lapponi is  of course that tired, languid condition of young.girls whose develop-'  ment to womanhood is tardy, and  whose health, at tlie period of that  development, is so often imperilled.  A girl, bright and merry enough in  childhood, will in her teens grow by  degrees pale and languid. Frequent  headaches, and a" sense of uneasiness  which ahe cannot understand, makes  her miserable. Just when it is time  for'her to leave off being a girl and  become a woman���������a change whicli  comes to different individuals at different ages���������hcr dovelopmojt lingers���������  why? Because' the has too little  blood. That is what.: Dr. Lapponi  means when ho speaks, in tho scientific language natural to him, of "tho  anaemia of development." Dr. Williams' Tink Pills for Palo People  have tho power of making new  blood. They cure anaemia just as  food cured hunger. That is how  they help growing girls, who, for  want of this now: blood, often drift  into chronic ill-health, or "go into  a decline"-���������which means consumption  ���������and die. Dr. "Williams' Pills could  save them.   *  " The value of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills as a nerve tonic, referred to  by Dr. Lapponi, makes them valuable to men as well as women. Thoy  nct on the nerves, through tho: blood  arid thus cure diseases like St. Vitus  dance, neuralgia,' paralysis and locomotor ataxia. When buying these  pills it is important to see that the  full name Dr. Williams' Pink Fills  for Palo People" is printed on the  wrapper around each box. Never  take a substitute, as it is worse  than a waste of money���������it is a menace to health., If you cannot get the  genuino pills from your dealer write  the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockville,    Ont..   and   the  P__ns_.will  bo sont you post paid at 50 cents a  box or six boxes for $2.SO.

Common Sights in the Streets   of  all Jap Cities.  The streets of Yokohama and for  that matter, of all Japanese cities  and towns, fairly swarm with children, says a writer in tho Brooklyn  Eagle, and the question of race Suicide certainly cannot bo raised here.  It seems in many streets that wo  seo moro children than adults, which  may bo partially accounted for by.  the fact that many of the adults  aro indoors, while the children usually are not. They aro of all ages,  and when old enough romp around  tho streets and engage in their  games with the greatest vim. A  book could bo written on this feature of street lifo in Japanese cities,  and tho subject would not then bo  exhausted. Almost every woman is  carrying a child on her bock, as the  universal wny of carrying them is in  a sort of a bag, made by tying tho  ends of a pieco of cotton cloth  around tho shoulders nnd depositing  the baby in the rccoptaclo thus formed. Somo of these babies seem entirely too lurgo to be thus carried,  and they are not, as a ruin, agreeable objects to look upon, for when  they aro awake their heads aro lying  on ono side, with a most stupid ex-  prcss'ion. In most cases they aro  asleep, and it would seem, from tho  way their heads hang over the bag,  that thoir necks would bo dislocated.  They certainly possess tho power of  sleeping under tho most discouraging  circumstances as the mothers go  about just as if the child woro not  .there, nnd stoop over when necessary in thoir work.  Many mothers do not bathe their  children until they aro two years  old at least, not because tliey desire  to avoid the labor involved, but  becauso they have been taught for a  generation that this was the proper  course to pursue. The result, as a  matter of fact,: is not pleasing to  European eyes.  'As soon as a femalo child grows  t,o a certain age she is also utilized  to carry the baby, which is sure to  be in the family, and littlo girls  often go around with huge babies  on their backs, almost half as largo  as themselves, and romp arid play  with the utniose indifference as regards their burden the stupid eyes  of the baby blinking, if awake, as if  it did not mind in the least having  its head : almost jounced from its  neck.   #:   ECCENTRIC LANDLORD.  Newcastle!   Man     Who      Collected  Rents in a Barrow.  Thousands of Newcastle (England)  citizens recently witnessed tho funeral of the- late Mr. George Handy-  side, a "self-made" millionaire,  whose career was one of tho most "romantic in tho annals of commercial  lifo. Ho .began as a cobbler's boy  at Berwick and died in his 80th  year the owner of vast tracts of residential and business property on  Tyneside.  His methods were decidedly eccentric He thought nothing of buying  a whole street of houses at once, demolishing ; them; and re-erecting 'buildings upon plans of his own.  Every Monday lie used to perambulate his acres of tenomented property with bell and barrow collecting rents. Those who answered- the  summons and brought out the money  to him received discount, in the. shape  of a fow coppers returned. It was  his proud ��������� boast .that he had .never  employed a baliff in his life. When  imposed upon he would philosophically say, "I shan't miss tbe money,  and it don't do them any good."  He never asked for rent at: a house  in which the bread-winners wore ill,  and in the case of death his first  act was to call and say to the widow,; "You shall livo here rent free  as long as you remain a .widow.".  Though worth considerably over a  million sterling, he turned; out. at six  every morning to labor with his" men  whom he paid every night for tho  work done. From a consumption  "cure" he mado vast sums of monev,  but at all his establishments there  was -the "announcement that thoso  who could i not afford lo buy  would receive it :free. At the  time of his death ho,had building  schemes on hand which would tako  20 years to  complete.   His_bequests inclu_do_������100,000_to_  Newcastle charities.   '   ������.   JAPAN'S  RED   CROSS.  Sir  Frederick  Treves   Says    Many  Good Things About It.  Sir Frederick Treves, tho King's  surgeon, writing from Tokio to tho  "British Medical Journal," has  soma most interesting things to say  about the medical and surgical  equipment of the Japanese army.  "In Japan," ho says, "there is  very little evidence that this wonderful nation���������-��������� is at war. All over  the country mobilization is being  carried on, but very quietly. and  methodically.  . "Most excellent arrangements are  made by the Red Cross and other  societies to secure every possible  comfort for the" soldier on .his say to  the transport, and no opportunity ia  lost to give him a good 'send off.'  Tho field equipment of the Army  Medical Corps in Japan is excellent,  light, simple, and inexpensive, and  full of ingenious devices in almost  every department.'  "In times of w������> . the. Red Cross  Society supplements the medical  work of the service. This society, is  remarkable in its size, its many  branches all oyer the country, its  important Work, and its very ad-  mirablo organization. It is a society  of voluntary workers.  "Tho Red Cross Society is able  to supply through ite various  branches 3,000 female nurses and 2,-  000 male nurses. Female nurses  will not be sent to the front, but  will undertake duty in Japan in the  military and Red Cross hospitals in  various parts of thc country."

The Train Is Given Pull Right o������  Way  Over  the  Line.  One of tho most important features  of a modern railway system is the  auxiliary train, or, as it is sometimes  called,  the  wrecking train.  It is not a scheduled train, it produces no revenue, yet it increases  the dividends of the company very  materially by saying;tho stock and  property of the road, and its importance is made evident by the fact that  it has running rights over any other  train on the road, even the special  train of the president'; himself being  included.  When an auxiliary train starts for  the scene of a wreck, "the conductor  is given an ordor with right of track  over any; other train, and also an  order to work between, two points  until the track is cleared again. It  is the auxiliary train that keeps tho  railway, lines clear, and prevents any  unnecessary delay in the running ordor of tho trains."  At every divisional point on the  system an auxiliary train is kept,  although the sizo, power, weight and  equipment of the outfits differ according to the importance of the  various places. For instance, the  C. P. R. has auxiliaries at Smith's  Falls, Havelock, London, -and Toronto Junction, but tho Junction  outfit is said to be tho largest and  best-equipped in Ontario, simply because it is situated in t'hc centro _ of  a network ot railways. It may go  north or east or west, whenever tho  call off wreck", comes.  ENGINE AND SIX  OARS.  The train' is made up of an engine  and only six cars. Noxt the engine  is the derrick car. built iike a flat  car, but much stronger and heavier.  On it is the derrick or ceane, which  is used for lifting and moving heavy  weights, trucks, and box cars. A  strong and well-built derrick will  lift a weight of 4.0 tons The device is simple* Chains arc used, and  whenever trie ponderous arm of the  machine  is    directly over. the. object  Any  kind  of success  worth  having  never arrives unexpectedly.  ���������: WRONG TRACK.  Had to Switch.  Even the most careful person is  apt to get. on the. wrong track regarding food sometimes and has to  switch, over.  When the right food.is selected tho  host, of ails that como from improper food and drink disappear,  oven whoro the trouble has been of  lifelong "standing".  "From a child I was never strong  and had a capricious appetite and I  was allowed to eat whatever I  fancied���������rich cako, highly seasoned  food, hot biscuit, etc.���������so it was not  surprising that my digestion was  soon out of order, and at tho age of  twenty-three I was on the verge of  nervous prostration. -I had no appetite nnd as I had boon losing  strength (because I didn't got nourishment in my daily food to repair  tho wear and tear oh body and  brain) I had no reserve force to fall  back on, lost flesh rapidly and no  medicine helped me.   ���������".*'���������.'  "Then it.was a wise physician ordered Grape-Nuts and cream and  saw to it that I gave "this food (now  to me): a proper trial and it showed  he knew what ho was nbout, because  I got better by bounds from; the very  first. That was in the summer and  by winter I was in bettor health  than ever beforo in my life, had  gained in flesh and weight and felt  like a new person altogether in mind  as well as body, all due to nourishing and completely digestible food,  Grape-Nuts.  '-'This happened three years ago,  and never sinco then have I had any  but perfect health for I stick to my  Grape-Nuts food and cream and still  think it delicious. I oat it every  dayi I never tire of this food and  can enjoy a saucer of Grapo-Nuts  and cream when nothing else satisfies  my appetite and it's surprising how  sustained and strong a small saucer-  ful will make one feel for hours."  Name given by Postum Co., Battle  Crock,  Mich.  True food that carries ono along  and "there's a reason." Grape-Nuts  10 days proves big things.     .  Got the little hook, "Tho Road to  Wellville,"  in cach package.  it is to lift, an engine tugs on a  chain thnt passes through a pulley,  and slowly but surely the load must  come. The derrick cur Is well blocked up anil mado perfectly stationary  beforo this operation is begun, for  too great a weight might piny havoc  with ils equilibrium if it wero not  well fixed. Clamps aro evon used to  fasten the wheels to. the rails.  Down east steam derricks aro usod,  nnd thoy nro powerful enough, it is  said, to lift a large-sized engine itself. The Ontario divisions aro not  yet blessed with tho steam article.  At the siding nearest tho wreck the  derrick car is put ahead of tho engine in order to havo it in placo for  its work.  Tho second car on tho train is the  one that contains the tools, all the  implements necessary for tho skilled  workmen to use in clearing a wreck  from tho lino. Thon comes a car  loaded with ties and rails; a precautionary measure, in- view of t'ho need  sometimes of patching up a. portion  of tho track.. Another car is loaded  with wooden blocks and jacks, in  order that any heavy weight not to  bo reached by the derrick may bo  hoisted and blocked up till on a level with tho track. When level, it is  nn easy matter to lay rails and pull  tho car or truck, or whatever it  may be, back on tho track again.  THI"! DINING  CAR.  In the dining car the men find the  nourishing food that they nood when  their work is done. This car ig always 'a part of tho ''train, anil his  Majesty the: Cook is un important  mcnibor of tho crew. He is supposed  to eat and sloop and stay on the' car,  and when he leaves it ho-must'.have  a substitute ready.  In the van stay the crow, numb'-r-  ing from 12 to 20 men. This crcw'is  composed of- men who are experienced in railway life, men who are expert machinists, men who can* toll at  a glance what needs to bo dono, and  who know also how to do it. Thoy  are carefully pickod from tho hundreds who work i'n tho shops and  around tho yards, and t'hey arc supposed to be always ready for. a call.  Speed is a prime essential in the  work of an auxiliary. Forty minutes is tho time allowed for preparation. Forty minutes after tho message telling of a wreck is received,  the auxiliary is supposed to bo pulling out of thc divisional point. On  the instant, that the news of a wreck  comes tho word is ��������� passed around,  the crow next duo out are called, the  regular auxiliary men aro called by  car repairers and call boys, and in a  few minutes all aro on tho spot. No  time for lunch. Just a moment to  kiss wifo and children good-bye, and  then off to the train, perhaps not to  return for days," and perhaps to  be back in a few (hours. .. For it's an  uncertain  lifo  always.  PICKS UP  SECTION MEN.  As the train: rolls along it v picks  up gangs of section men if the  wreck is reported as a big one. These  men are to do any track-laying that  is  found: necessary.  All possible speed is made to tho  scene of tho wreck. A milo a minute is often the rate. When it: is  reached the men got to work, and as  rapidly as possible set to work to  straighten "out the tangle. On such  nn occasion time means money, and  not a minute is to be lost.  If an, engine goes clean off the  track and into tho ditch, the men  build a foundation solid and' secure  under it, and raise the locomotive  by the sure and steady work of  jacks. Every inch that is gained is  filled up by blocks until at last the  engino is level'with the track. Then  temporary rails are laid, and it is  onco.more placed on its native rails.  Thou it is pulled to tho nearest,, repairing ^io*r������,_Jhero to  bo fitted for  service again."   V   WHISN SUCCESS IS EASY.  The principles that win in success  are very simple and few in number.  They ai'o easily remembered. Here  thoy arc: "First, industry, but i not  overwork; second, willingness to profit by the experience of others; third,  ability, coupled with modesty; fourth  simple nnd correct habits; fifth, honesty, politeness and fairness. Anyone of ordinary ability who practises  those rules cannot avoid success.  Success is easier than failure.

The ladies provided coffee and cake  and did their best in every way to  make the evening what it was, one of  great enjoyment.  After the programme proper, those  who wished to enjoy a few turns of  the mazy dance were entertained with  suitable music by the band, the end of  which came sharp at midnight.

I 0 O F Banquet  Tuesday evening last the members I  of-tho 1.0.0. F. lodges in the ci Ly /  assembled in their hall over the post  crawled up to the Senate, where it  was anticipated the finishing blow  would be administered. Sir William  and his colleagues reckoned without  their host, their game was detected  and the Secretary of State forced to  show the cloven hoof. It- would be  difficult to imagine why the conspiring  Liberals expected men who since 1872  had been the earnest friends of work-  ingnien, should in 1S07 prove inimical  to their interests. The Government  support in tlie Senate was rapidly  increasing and that, with even a fair  Conservative vote would ensure the  passing of any important measure.  However, when bill No. 5, "an act to  restrict the importation and employment of aliens" (see Senate official  reports, pages C95, etc.) a lengthy  debate ensued.  Hon. JMr. Casgrain (conservative),  said: "Living as I do, on the border,  I sliould be derelict in my duty, if I  did not call attention to the harsh iind  ���������shameful treatment that Canadians  are subjected to, when going to the  United States in search of employment. . . . Retaliation is a measure  to be deplored;=bulfbcconleS"ivtiecessity  for a nation which has a sense of its  own dignity and of the protection due  to its own citizens."  ft may be mentioned that billNo. "5  did not emanate from the Government  still Sir William Mulock displayed no  animosty towards it. Consequently,  the Hon. R. AV. Scott, loader in the  Senate, reminded Goverrment supporters that it was not a measure  demanding the slave vote. TJe, however, did all he could to defeat it,  saying (page 003),   "If   we put this on  DOiTNOW  GET A BOTTLE OF  CREAM OF WITCH HAZEL  An   exquisite  Toilet  Lotion for   "���������  Chapped Hands,  Roughness of thc Skin  Redness, Irritation, Etc.

Itis  not "on a line with the vidws of - the  people, of Canada." Again' (005) "I  advise that it iiEnROPPKD, because iL  is not a bill which should be enforced."  Hon. Mr. Macdonald (Conservative,  British Columbia) "J would not give  to (he United Slates one single thing.  .' . . 1 should cci'Lainly like to try  this bill. . : . 1 should meet them  blow for blow."  Sir Mackenzie Bo well (Conservative)  pointed out that when he accompanied  Sir John Thompson, and Hon. G.  Foster, to the conference at Washington, Mr. Blaine sn.d the Government  could not change the law, as it was  introduced by an independent member  of the House of Representatives and  carried through. Sir "Mackenzie said:  "I understood tho Hon. Secretary of  State to say that, he thought the Sth  clause with reference to communication with the Attorney-General of  Canada in Ottawa, before you could  prosecute, was nonsense. . . One of  the strongest advocates of an act of  this kind, said in the House of Commons that the Government has so  niul iiated it that it was unworthy of  further support."  Hon. Mr. Clemon (Conservative)  page 089, said: "The sooner we put  this law on the statute book, and shew  that we are determined to act in our  own defence, the sooner the United  States will come to terms."  The Hon. the Secretary of State,  finding that : Conservative Senators  were not prepared*.to assist him in  picking chestnuts out of the fire,  became somewhat anxious. At all  events his friends appeared sullen and  he mfide_a_fljial jtppeiyji^gej"*^),^!  IJa'Snot .allow tiiis bill, to pass  without expressing my very great  regret that the parliament of Canada  should have taken the step it has with  regard to this measure."  Sueh as the bill wns, it received a  third reading, thanks to the support  vouchsafed by Sir Mackenzie Bowell  and the Conservative Senators generally, and today Sir William Mulock,  with brazen effrontery asks���������"What  has the Conservative party done for  the workiiigman?"  on Monday for tho prairie where we  hope its refreshing breezes will win  back to him health and vigor.

HEAD  OFFICE, , FERGUSON,   B. C.  Branch Offices : Poplar Creek, B. C; Camborne, B. C.  Bankehs: Imperial Bank of Canada, Ferguson, B. C.  Solicitor *xd Secretary : Robert Hodge, Ferguson, B. C.  The promoters of the Great Northern Mines, Limited, have every reason to feel that they are  presenting a proposition which stands unique in the history of mining, and one in which the few who'  are fortunate enough to have shares allotted to them may well feel that they have an interest in some  of the richest gold mines ever discovered.  Every man who reads has lizard of the sensation created by the discovery of the Lucky Jack,  at Poplar Creek.     Thata claim ot such unheard cf richness should have lain for years on a well  known line of travel, passed over by hundreds of prospectors���������even having.a railroad built' through  t���������to be discovered at last by the men from whom this Company bought it, is almost incredible.     It  is a case of truth being stranger than fiction. ��������� ���������   ���������  The Company's*second acquisition,,the Swede. Group; comprising the Goldsmith and Gold  Hill claims, (over ioo acres), is, in the opinion of many; an even bigger and richer property.  It is an accepted fact among mining men that a camp does not usually produce more than  two or three great mines. In the Poplar Creek camp there are three great gold properties, and  the Great Northern Mines, Limited, owns two of theni. **- -  A  CONSOLIDATION.     -t~LJJ-  The promoters of this Company have in the past successfully operated the famous Nettie L.  and Silver Cup Mines in the Lardeau. They can point to an experience of nearly .ten years mining  -and prospecting in this district, during which time they have organized several companies, and developed many valuable properties, in each case with marked success.  Having acquired several of the most notable free milling gold groups in- British Columbia,  the promoters decided to consolidate them in one big, solidly organized company, and place on the  market, for a limited time only, a small block of the stock at par.    Hence this prospectus.  The consolidation includes the following properties, which are more fully" described in an-  -Other part of this prospectus :  No.  A  COMPLETE  MINE  GAINER  No. 1.���������Olive Mabel  GoSdenville  Foundation  Annie L.

DESCRIPTION   OF  PROPERTY.  No. 1, embracing seven claims, (a claim is about 52 acres), and well known throughout the  province as the Lade group, is situated on Gainer Creek, fourteen miles above Ferguson.  Atunnel 112 leet long has been run and a shaft sunk on the ore. Five tons of the ore shipped  to the smelter gave returns of $1,100 to the ton, in free gold.' Frequent assays of ore from other  parts of the claims have more than confirmed this high value, running from $200 to $3,200, and from  picked samples as high as $11,340 to the ton.  The property is traversed by a main ledge, 8 to 12 feet wide, and several smaller veins carrying high values in free gold and telluride, similar to the rich ores of Cripple Creek, Colorado.

The Lucky Jack has   been  so much  talked    of since its discovery, and has created such a sensation in mining    circles,    being    described  in all  the leading mining journals, that the directors feel   it almost-  unnecessary to say much further. The   group   comprises   three   claims,   situated at the mouth of Poplar Creeks  and with the Lardeau branch of the Canadian Pacific Railway running    through it.  No less than seven ledges have been discovered on it, all carrying   free gold.

LAST   BUT  BEST.  No. Ti, Though enough has been snid in tho foregoing to satisfy even the most sceptical, there is  still better to follow.  Words  fail  to  describe  the  phenomenal  richness of the ''Swede"  group.  Briefly, however, it may bo stated, that it consists of two full claims, the "Goldsmith" and "Gold Hill"  being a continuation of the I.ucky .lack nnd lying higher up tho mountain, thus furnishing better" tunnelling  sites    and    enabling the ledges to    bo mined to a depth of nearly   2,000 feet, without sinking.  There are, as far as known to date, nearly a dozen ledges on the claims, carrying from an ounce to  over a hundred thousand dollars per ton in free gold, and besides this, there are rich deposits of galena and  telluride on the claims, as indicated by the following certificate given by Mr. J.

Poplar  Immensely  "Words Fail to Give an Idea of tne Great  Riches of tHe New Discovery is Opinion  of Mr. Beatty.  <From   the  Vancouver Daily  Leager;  August 15th, 1903).  "By any newspaper description It  would be hard to exaggerate the gold,  discovery on Poplar creek. .If. I des-  cribejd .to the press what I saw, a snffi-  ciently glowing account could not be  written to convey an idea of the  marvellous showing of the Lucky Jack  and the great richness pf tide surrounding country."  This statement was made by T. J.  Beatty, the well known mining man  of .Vancouver. Mr. Beat'ty has been'  working in the Lardeau, crown granting claims about thirty mile away from  the find.      He had. heard about the  streak of quartz cutting the ;grey_  Stone perpendicularly for over three  hundred feet, and from three to four  feet .ii,._width. A closer inspection of  tie claim is' very interesting. Notices  were posted in every direction, warning  people to keep 'away from the ledge,  while Messrs. Morgan and O'Connor,  two of the owners of.the Lucky Jack,,  and Secretary. Holden, of the ���������new-  company, were mounted, on guard at.  the ledge with loaded rifles.  Mr. j Beatty. examined the ledge up  the face of the bluff. No one, how-*  ever, was allowed to go further back,  although the owner stated that the  surface behind was .much .richer than  away down to below the second crossing of the lardeau'.

The Lucky Jack mines are located  oh the south side of Poplar creek near  itis confluence'with, the Lardeau river.  The group contains three full claims'  and a' fraction, covering a compact  area of something like 170 acres. The  Lucky Jack is sirivpit in the very  heart of the Poplar creek camp, and  is generally admitted by those com^  peterit to judge to have .'the most phe>  nomenal showings of free gold quartz  ever discovered in. Western America.  The richness of the ore is something  fabulous. It is so thickly impregnated  with coarse gold that there is no difficulty in selecting from the several  ledges specimens that, contain more  precious metal than quartz. Owing to  the topography and general physical  character of the country, the veins  are exposed to" view in a remarkable  ���������way. From natural causes much, of  the rock in the vicinity of the large  ledges has been broken away, together  with the vein filling, thus disintegrating large quantities of high grade ore  all ready for treatment.  Early History. ���������  To a representative of: the 'Miner  Mr. Holten was induced to give an  approximate idea of how matters stand  inthe new gold fields at the present  time.  '���������It is difficult," he aaid, " to give  a description of the richness of Poplar  creek without arousing the scepticism  of those who have riot Been on the  ground. I have mined all over the  west and until I went to Poplar creek  would not have believed that it was  possible to find a district of such widespread and uniform richness as unquestionably occurs in-these new discoveries. It .is all the more surprising from  the fact'that ��������� the; surrounding country  has been:" fairly well prospected. At  the mouth of .Poplar creek' and along  the Idwer Lardeaii'thererorejevidences  of extensive placer operations.    It  nine other leads on the property. Some  are parallel to the main vein, while  others occur at right angles to it. Kach  and all the vef.is show free gold to the  naked eye."  People   Flocking  lu.  Mr. Holten says there are from 11100  to 1500 people in the Poplar creek dis-  frict. The country is being ''explore'd  from Trout lake to Kootenay lake, and  rich strikes are being made daily. The  most feverish excitement, prevails. A  number of people are in the district  trying to make deals with the prospectors, hut most of them hnvo limited  backing. Mr. Pool was thc first man  of means to get on the ground.  A  New  Town.  A town will be started nt. the mouth  of Poplar creek and on the flat portion of tho Lucky Jack group. It will  probably bear the name of Poolsbnrg.

This is the Lucky Jack  claim.' Though* much has been written  of the claim, not the halt has been told.  is|ln fact all the stories told'in the camp  Perkins located a lead ten feet from  the railroad track, showing the same  nugget quartz as the Lucky Jack, but  this lead is undoubtedly on the Lucky  Jack  claim.  The ground in.the camp seems to be  impregnated with the yellow metal, for  tha crib work below the bridge over  Poplar creek is packed with rock which  runs extremely rich in free gold. On  the other side of the creek from where  the Lucky Jack ia located, Marquis  and Gilbert have been working for  four years and they havo recently  struck it very rich, claiming lo have located the mother lode from which the  Lucky Jack Is an offshoot. This lode  Is of decomposed quartz, and a ton  of it on the dump is said to contain  $4,000 in gold, while an offshoot from  this lollo' contains the samo kind of  quartz and just as rich as tlio Lucky  Jack quartz.  Owing to the fact that the strikes  wero made late in tho season there  has been no stampede to thc camp and  thero are not a great muny miners  there at present. But those that are  there are Intensely in earnest, and as  an indication of that earnestness, Mr.  Lucas says thnt he saw one man working close to tho track on a rocky bluff  where the train passed. Tho train  rushed by but a few feet over his head  but he did not look up or stop driving  his drill for one second as the train  thundered by. He was anticipating  every moment to see a fortune burst  upon his view and not even the mighty  thunder and close proximity of a railway train could disturb the intense  concentration of his thoughts upon his  fascinating work. In the spring there  will'be a stampede to Poplar creek  and the world will yet hear more of  the ..fairylike land, in the lap of civilization, a land gilded with gold.  generally .supposed  that t.Kls  was    a of a sensational nature would fill a lat  profitable field [for placer miners in the  early sixties:and following the rushes  ta the= Fraser ;river aid 'the Wild  Horse. ..But.in those days1 prospectors  do not art-fear to'h'ave thought of lode  volume, but they would partake too  much of the color Jdf the metal found  there that'they would not be credited.

"  who bought the Lucky Jack .for  ���������1200,000, money made right in the  district, for'he only recently sold the  Nettle L. for a large sum, he was  heading for the Canadian .Territories  with his grip full of nuggets to sell  stock,"  Mr.   Beatty  said.  The quickest way to get to the big  strike Is to go to Arrowhead on the  C. P. R., take the boat to Beaton,  stage to Trout lake, boat to Gerrard,  train to Poplar Creek. The traveller  can walk to the Lucky Jack from the  train in six minutes. You can hit  the Lucky Jack with a stone from the  wagon road. It seems incredible to  a casual observer how it is possible  that the rich claim could have been  undiscovered so long, lying as it does  practically beside the railroad track.  This is explained by the fact that, the  fire burnt, the moss off the rock last  fall, and left the big bluff clean.     All  According to-Mr.. Pool, one of the own  ers, he considers that when he-first  looked at the mine, sizing, up the proposition, with.a'vle^'tb purchase, that  there was certainly a rnillion dollars staring him in the face. I think  that the chances are there are three  or four million dollars right above  ground to stope.  ���������' '.'-Yet this Is only one of the marvellously rich ledges, for when I was  there I'got several well authenticated  statements that there were other properties just, around the same vicinity  even richer than the Lucky Jack  some of them carrying even as much  as five ounces of platinum. A lot.  of these properties are owned by  Swedes. As the country is largely  populated with people of this nationality,, they Were the first, on the spot  and did most of the locating, fn some  instances the Swedes, as p.oon as they  uncover the ledge, cover it up again  it hidden    from  Swede ba^ uncovered a ledge of high  grade silver and goW. :At Rapid  creek I visited the Broken Hill claim,  also the Rogers and Smith groups. 1  picked up pieces of qUartz In'the  claims from the surface'with nuggets  in them. These claims are about  three miles.,from the Lupky Jack in  a straight line west,'th"e showing here  being "Uso" very rich   -with the same  formation.  Rogers and. Smith have i  Closed the De&l.  "I arrived in camp a few days after  the discovery, and was taken to see  it. My feelings after a hasty examination may be better imagined than  described. 1 could scarcely believe my  senses.

The same nature"*of nuggetty  qua'rtz is on the Lucky Jack, and gold  can be panned from tbe quartz on  all the Wg leads.   -  "These rich finds are all In  same belt as the well known mines  Nettie L. and Silver Ciid and Cam-  bourne.

"Warner, of Vancouver, who is stopping at  the Veridome. ���������''  "Newspapers have given vidld descriptions of the wealth of gold ore recently discovered in the Poplar creek  country, but the half has not been told.  I have a brother who has lived within  40 "h-dles of the Lucky Jack for nearly a year, and the contents of some of  tne letteis which 1 have received from  liim ate almost beyond belief.  "People who have taken up claims  there, as well as those who did own  land in the vicinty," he continued,  "are trying to keep the outside world  ignorant of the true state of affairs.  Great as has been their precaution,  people have flocked to tlie scene in  sucn numbers that it is now almost  impossible to procure a foot ot land  in the whole district"  lo make his assertions more complete, Mr. Warner produced a letter  which he had received fiom his brother last Friday.  The part of the letter whicli pertained to the wonderful discovery, iaix  as follows:  "Excitement around Lucky Jack  and all along Poplarc reek is at a  fearful pitch. People who couldn*t  tell gold ore if they saw it, are running about the country with a pick  axe on their shoulder and a frying pan  tide to their belt.

All the way along this  tunnel the showing is just as good as  where the first discovery was made.
