BEVELSTOKE  Mr William Kirkup Dies Suddenly at the Oriental Hotel  Tuesday Evening from Heart  Failure  'Yesterday- tit noon the startling  news wns given out that Win. Kirkup  was found dend in liis hed tit the  Oriental hotel, liaving apparently  heen dead some 10 hours before it was  known to Mr. A. Stone, or the employees'of. the hotel. " Tuesday evening  "Mr. Kirkup retired to his room early  apparently to rest, and wituout taking  oil' his clothes he laid down on the  bed andjexpired without a moments'  notice. "The proprietor of the hotel  noticed that Mr. Kirkup did not come  down to breakfast and went up to his  room, finding deceased in bed and  lying in a natural position, and supposing him to be asleep, did not then  try to arrouse him, but went up again  about midday and was horrified to  find that Mr. LsLirkup was dead. Mr.  Stone notified the authorities at once  aud on arrival of the doctor the body  was examined and it was learned that  death had taken place some hours  previously.  The late Wm. Kirkup was an old  timer in this district, coming to Kevelstoke iirst in the year 1S5"5 and has  moie or less identified with mining  interests in this district and particularly in the Big Bend as a placer miner  up to the time of his death.  Mr. Kirkup's belief in the great  riches of the placer giouhds in tbe Big  Bend district never wavered, and that  distriet had no better friend than  "Bill" Kirkup. To the old timers of  this disti ict the news of his death will  be received with genuine regret. He  was big hearted and his hand was  always open to help the needy, and  no one ever appealed to "Bill" for  assistance and was refused. The  "Ujskald sincerely regrets to announce  the news of his death, and joins with  the many .friends here in extending  sympathy to his relatives in the hour  of theit? sad bereavement.  E  ASK JUSTICE  1001.  Grand Amateur Production by  the Revelstoke Dramatic Club  Nov. 9th -T- Splendid Scenery,  Special Music and Dance.  Patrons of the drama should not fail  to see the production of the "Ticket of  Leave Man" by the Dramatic Club on  Wednesday evening next, Nov. Oth,  in the Opera House. This is one of the  most-successful four-act dramas that  has been produced of late years.  Special scenery i.s being painted by  Mr. T. H. Dunne wliich is exceptionally good, one representing Bellevue  Tea Uaulens in London, and another  The Churchyard of St. Nicholas, being  works of art. Great care has been  exercised iri the distributing the different roles, and as will be seen from  the cast this will without doubt be  tho best production of the season and  no expense is being spared to make it  so. Kobert Briefly, the hero, will be  interpreted by J." W. Chilton, who  created such a good impression in the  last prochietion given hy the club."  As Hawksh'aw, tlie detective. E.  Sturdy has a good part and should  not 1'aiJ- to^niake_go^d._Mr.^Jibson,  Uie"~-kfnd-heartcd banker, will be  cleverly, portrayed by D. M. Rae.  Sam Willoughby, a fresh young city  chap, and Mnltby. the proprietor of  the Bellevue Tea Gardens, will no  doubt Iind clever exponents in O. D.  Palmer and A. Crosby, who will uiake  their first appearance in this play,  .lames Dalton, alias Downey, alias the  Tiger; will be handled:-by AV. Henry,  and gives liim three distinct types of  persons to play and is one of .the most  difficult roles in the "Ticket of Leave  Man." As Melter Moss, the plotting  Hebrew and Dalton's pal, W. A.  Chambers will no doubt give a good  account of himself. The comedy  element will be handled by Mrs. T. H.  Dunne as Emily St. Evremorid, and T.  Hudson as Green Jones, which goes  without saying that this branch of tlie  performance will be well attended to.  Miss Mae Corley as May Edwards, the  heroine, has a. part whicli is - well  adaptedto this talented young lady's  style. As the talkative Mrs, Willoughby a better person to fill the'part than  Mrs. C.J. Wilkes it would be>; difficult task to. find, it being a'splendid  part..'..-.-'  Special arrangements have been  made for music to be furnished by an  orchestra of five pieces. At the conclusion of the performance dancing  will be indulged in' and all attending  the play are invited to remain.  The management respectfully request the public to be on hand in good  time as the play is a long.one and will,  be followed by a dance, for these reasons the curtain will rise promptly at  S:15 and those who fail to see the  garden scene in tlio opening of the  lirst act will miss one of the* best parts  of the performance.  Postponed  The Beggar Prince Opera Oo.mpai.iy  will not play as advertised at the opera,  house to-night. No. 1 is late ana the  company cannot get herein time.

Jn the matter of coats, it is already pretty evident ihat a change  has como o'er the spirit of tho dream  fur whereas we have been accustomed to see none but the shortest and  loosest of coats now for many seasons past, we shall bo retiuirod in tho  iinmcuialo future to transfer our affections to coats that arc moulded  closely to the figure both back and  front, and that measure, a long  three-quarter   length. Many     very  smart traveling gowns have boon  mado already with these long coats,  while ono of thc most striding frocks  included" in the trousseau of a recent  bride was made entirely in white  broderio anglake, with' a plain skirt  finished at tho houi, with a narrow  flouu.ee of broderio, and a tight-fitting coat of the samo material, in a  three-ouarter length, with long revets  and gauntlet cuffs of white Irish  poplin, covered with Irish crochet  laco.  Another long coat of tlio samo description was made to wvnr with a  very chic gown in dark brown taffe-  tas moussclinc shot with heather  purple. The skirt of this gown wns  trimmed near th'o hem with' threo  gathered bouillonnos of tho samo  silk. The coat was made with long  basques, fitting smoothly round tlio  figuro below tho waist, Tout having  the bodice part closely gathered  down the centre of thc front, and  fastened there with dull gold buttons. The sleeves of this coat wero  nlso noteworthy, as they wero made  in the old log of mutton shape, and  arranged with a considerable amount  of fullness between the shoulder and  the elbow, whilo from tlio elbow to  tho wrist, they were wrinkled lightly  round the arm, in a quaint but very  becoming fashion.  Jn the caso of tho "cloth coats for  wearing with tailor gowns, the  sleeves will be smaller, and of a  much more simple form���������a fact which  argues that, of necessity, the sleeves  of the bodices will also bo considerably less voluminous as time goes  on. With these longer coats, many  of which will bo made with full  basques, smaller sleeves ' will. Tuo a  foregone conclusion, if any kind of  Kmceful proportion is to be preserved to the figure.  MODES FOR AUTUMN.-  Jealously guarded as the secrets of  .lho coming fashions always arc, certain linos have boon already laid  down for thc immediate future, by  the great ecuturies in London and in  Paris, nnd it is scarcely likely that  nny great deviations will be ma'clo  from these during the next fow  months. Walking skirls will remain  short and very full, and thore aro  those even among the oracles who  hint at a lining'of .buckram-in the  hem at first, to be succeeded aftcr-  .war'ds by Whalebone, with possibly  steel," as a last resource. Between  a steel-stiffened skirt and a crinoline  there' is little more than a verbal  difference, although one can but hope  that if wo are to have crinoline at  all, It will remain in a modified form  unsuspetted by the majority, and so  clevercly insinuated that its existence  will be "rather hinted at than emphatically  expressed.  r- Full skirts will be worn also in tho  case of those gowns that are intended for smart occasions, although the  pleats and gathers will be moro simply arranged than has hitherto been  the case, while the flounces and frills  will be fewer in number than they  have been lately. In many cases,  where soft fabrics like crepe de chine  nnd colours mousseline are being used  the skirts will be allowed to fall in  long, straight fol'ds from waist to  feet, thc bodices being also vcry  simply     but    picturesquely   arranged  .with full folds coming from tho  shoulders and crossing, in front, under a deep waist-belt of soft silk or  satin ribbon.  r-i=A-largc"cdliar=oPthe=very-fine--:Irish  crochet lace or Venetian guipure will  lie worn with a bodice of this kind,  wliile the full sleeves, drooping oft  ihe shoulders, will be drawn into  Vandyke cuffs of lace to correspond.  '1 he tendency of all lhe newsest bodices will be"toward fitting closely to  the figure, many of them being arranged wilh long points in front,  ortipod slightly as they reach the re-  pion or the waist so that tliey give  the effect of a belt, and worn, of  course, outside ihe skirt. For tailor  {���������owns and coats plain smooth materials will be worn, some of the  ne west boJices being made to fasten  like a riding habit, straight down  llic centre of the front.  IH MODEM DAYS..  THE WAYS OF DOING THINGS  HAVE GHEATXY CHANGED.  No Branch of Science Has Made  Greater Advancement Than That  of Medicino���������Thousands of Lives  Prolonged,   by  Modern Discover-  "Few things have dovoloi>eil ns  rapidly during the past quarter of a  century as tho scijncu of medicine,"  said a well known practitioner recently. "And undoubtedly tho most  striking phase in its progress is in  the treatment of the blood. In the  old dnys it was tliought-tliat o|>ening  a vein and letting the blood out was  a euro for most 'diseases. Tho utter  fallacy of that theory was discovered  afler a while. Then tho symptoms of  the disease wero treated and tho  blood disregarded. That also has  been shown to be a wrong practice,  for, though driven tt/tay for a time,  tho symptoms always return if tho  cause is not removed, and tho disease is worse than before. It is tho  root of the disease that must bo attacked, and tho most important developments of modern medical scienco  has been in discovering that, in most  diseases, this lies in tho condition of  blood. If tho blood is thin and  poor, tlie nerves and vilal organs  cannot receive iheir proper nourishment, the system becomes run down  and in a condition to invito disease.  Build up the blob'cf, restore the worn-  out nerves and you remove tlio cause.  When tho cause is gone the disease  will van'sh."  An instance of lho truth" of this is  given by Miss A. M. Tuckcy, Oxdrift,  Ont., who says :���������"I do not know  what would havo become of me had  it not been for Dr. Williams' Fink  I'ills. My blood seemed to liavo  turned to water, and I was troubled  with diw.incss, headaches and general  prostration. I tried several medicines but instcad of getting better I  was gradually but surely growing  worse. I became so weak I could no  longer work, and it was Wliile in this  condition I was advised to try Dr.  Williams' l'ink Fills. After using tho  pills for a few weeks I began to gain  strength; my appetite returned, trie  headaches and di/5ziness vanished, and  beforo long I was enjoying as good  health ns oyer I. had done in my life.  I cannot thank you enough for the  good the pills have done mo, and, I  hope tliey wilL long continue to help  other ��������� sufferers.."  Indigestion, neuralgia, heart trouble, anaemia, kidney . and liver complaints,:. rheumatism, tho functional  ailments of women,, and a host of  other troubles are nil a disease of  the blood, and that is why they: nre  always cured by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink , I'ills which' actually  make new, "rich, red blood, thus  reaching th'o root of tho disease nnd  driving it frc-m the system. The  groat success of this medioine has induced some unscrupulous dealers to  offer pink colored imitations. You  can protect yourself against these by  seeing that the full name "Dr:".. Williams' Tink Fills for Palo Peoplo" if**  printed oil the wrapper around every  box. Sold by all medicine dealers  or may bo had direct from the Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont.. at 50 cents a box or six boxes  for $2.50.

Comparison     o������     Casualties   Suggests That   Gunpowder  is  a  Beneficence.  The horror of war increases pari  passu witli the advance of civilization, and t'he value set upon life has  arisen proportionately witli our ability to appreciate its pleasures, its  mutualitv and associations', says The  Pall Mali Gazette. Partly t'he scn-  timontalism of up-to-date journalism  partly our own sensibility of nature,  lias disposed us to regard any battle  losses over 1.000 as "terrible." But  the strange truth' is that as we go  ISacirTn^th'e^lii'stoYy^of'wa  notice an extraordinary increase in  thc propnrtion of losses to the numbers engaged, until we begin to realise thnt the lonaboiv and clothyard  shaft of our ancestors wore much  more deadly weapons than tho modern magazine rille, with its small  bu.llet  and   high  velocity.  Such facts would doubtless have  confounded M. Illoch, whose favorite  contention it was that, owing to the  doadlincss of modern weapons, war  wns rapidly becoming impossible. A  closer study of history would have  taught him that lho discovery of  gunpowder was in reality a beneficent  invention, which hns enabled an  armed struggle to bo decided without the foi mer necessity for prolonged <-loso-qiiarter fighting and the  deadly weapons of  tho melee.  It cannot bo charged that men are  loss courageous now-a-days when  tliey are called upon to face much'  more terrifying instruments of warfare. Hut the fn'-t remains tliat the  Lee-Enfield the ���������/Jauser, quick-firing  artillery nnd high��������� explosive shells arc  productive of notching 'iko Such  slaughter ns the .long-bow. the liat-  tlcax and the sword in th'o hands of  our fis'iting ancestors.  SOME ISATTLES  COMFATIEI).  If we take battle:1 like Colcnso and  Kinchou since the employment of  maga'/ine rifles nnd quick-firing artillery, and compare tliem with engagements such as Crecy, Poitiers or  Agincourt, wo cannot fail to be impressed with the astonishing discrepancy in thr- casualty lists. In  Gen. Buller's attack on tlie Boers  at the battle af Colcnso. his mon  presented as fair a mark for the action of tho modern firearm as our  enemies could have desired. Yet, as  a result of f.overal hours' hot fighting, during which many bravo deeds  were dono by offliccrs and men, who  recklessly exposed themselves to a  storm of bullets nnd shell fire, our  losses wero iKti more than .1,100 men  out of a force of 25,000 to yO.OOO,  wliile those of tho Boors woro probably far loss.  Compare sucli a casualty list witli  the slaughter at Agincourt in 1-115,  a battle which lasted for not much  longer than tliree hours between an  English force of 14,000 men under  Henry V. and 50,000 Fi-ench* led by  tlieir Constable. It was tlio longbow and the clotliyard sliaft which  broke tlie French* army and wns the  most potent agent of destruction on  tliat great day in ou,r military annals. Over 10,000 French' wero slain  outright, and two or tliree times  that  number  wero  wounded.  With the result of this three hours'  battle it is interesting to contrast  the sixteen hours' struggle in Kin-  ch'au between tlio .Russians and Japanese, whore botli sides woro armed  to tho tooth with modern weapons  and tlio position was taken after  successive assaults in tlie face of an  apparently murderous firo from  heavy artillery and magazine, ritles.  At th'e end of this prolonged contest  the losses: of the victors, compelled  to advance through tlie'-fire-swept  zone in front of Nans-Kan-;, wero no  more than 4,000 men, of whom only  750 were killed, out ot a total force  of  about  ("0,000.  How infinitely more terrible again  was the work of the bow and the  battleax at the battle of Crecy in  1436 when our-Edward HI. and his  son, tlio Black Prince, routed the  great army of Philip of Franco. Tho  English nrmy.numbered 30,000 men,  tliat of Philip 120,000. Again tlie  longbow proved its terrible effectiveness. 'Tlie French* were utterly unable to_siistain tlie heavy lire of its  yai-cf-long projectiles, against wliich  armor wns but an indifferent, protection. - ond '.-'we're routed with the  loss of.1,200 knights, 1,400 esquires  and 34,000 men, of whom no less  tliar. 30,000 were killed outright.  Tlie same casualty lists were noticeable at tlio battle of Poitiers, whore  ���������12,000"; English; defeated 60,000  French; and so terrible was tlio execution 'done by tho English bowmen tliat 11.POO of their enemy wore  slm'n outright. Both Hastings and  Banr.eckburn bear additional testimony to thc formidable and deadly  character of those old battles. At  thc former '30.000 men fell, on both  sides, while the latter resulted in  total losses of 38,000 in both' cases  a heavy percentage of the combatants  LISTS  MUCH  SMALLER.  As we gradually approach' our own  time we shall find not only that the  proportion of those actually slain  in battle to the number of th'ose who  are wounded shows a sensible decrease, but the total casualty lists  ore almost invariably smaller. in  proj-ortion to the numbers engaged,  in spite of the fact that the weapons of war are always 'described as  growing more and  more rteninjy.  In     the  campaign   of  Marlborough  CHANGE  FOOD.  Some  Vcry  Fine   Results Follow.  Tlie wrong kind of food will put  tlio body in such a diseased condition that no medicines will curo it.  There is no way l.ut to change food.  A man in Mo. soys:  "For 2 years I was troubled so  witli my nerves that sometimes I  was provtratcd nnd could hardly  ever gnt in a full month at my  work.

Ton  days' trial of Grape-Nuts will show  ono tlie 'rond to health', slrcinglli nilfl  vigor.     "There's  a   reason."  Look in each package for tlio famous little book, "Tho flood to Wcll-  yiUe."-  there was still much hand-to-hand  fighting, for, although artillery (had  taken its placo in the battlefield the  infantry firearm was possessed of  little range or accuracy. Accordingly, at Blenheim and Mnlplaquet two  of the most bloody struggles of later  times, although tho slain show a do-  creasing ratio, the losses on botli  sides, out of a total of about 150,-  000 combatants, were, in th'e former  engagement, 44,000 killed wounded  nnd prisoners, whilo the cost of driving tlie French from a strong position nt Malplnquet was 20.000 killed  nnd wounded out of a force of 90,-  0C0.  AllCiough in th'o larger nrmics of  more modern times losses have reached In many instances a high figuro,  yet the percentage of slaughter, especially of killed to wounded! combatants, hns sliown a remarkable decrease from tlio horrible figures of  ancient battles and sieges, beforo tlio  clis'w'overy of gun-powder and tho increasing perfection of firearms ns it  tnay appear���������began to diminish" th'o  butchery which invariably attended  tho encounter of armed battles in  olden times.  Tlio explanation is that fighting is  now carried on at such a distance  and in separate bodies of infinitely  grent manoeuvring that lho least  tactical advantage becomes instantly obvious, while the abandonment  of armor and tho ponderous weapons  of the melee has endowed bodies of  troops with superior mobility, both  in  advance and retreat.  In old days, when tlio effective  range of the longbow was not moro  than 18 to 20 score yards, a battle  could only be decided by armies  coming'to closo quarters at an early  stage of the conubat. The consequence was th'ey become so intermingled tliat tliey could witli difficulty be separated, and, indeed, tho  victor was often quite, unable to feel  assured of success until ho found no  more of liis opponents to slaughter.  Moreover, it was much moro difficult  to mako effective use of cover then  thnn now, and tho bowman of Agincourt was debarred from th'o use of  his weapon in the prone position  adopted by his successor, the rifleman of to-dav.  ~h  A certain restaurant hns become  famous for its - high prices.

Philip  was glad of the long, silent walk  buck ovor tlie snow, during which ho  could think it over and decide how  much' it would be desirable to reveal.  Beforo returning to the farm, he  turned os-'ide and called at tho Rectory, the lights of which shone invitingly on the snowy-lawn between  tho trees. Here he was received  with a friendly warmth that gave  him tho only home-feeling he hail had  in "England. Mr. Ingleby had hoard  of his unexpected return tho night  before, and came out into tho hall  to welcome him, silently pressing his  liand and drawing him into his Snug  study, where "a mundane odor of  bird's-eye "tobacco was distinctly recognizable; an'd where fishing rods  and guns adorned the walls, along  with shelves laden with ponderous  theological  tomes.

"Too late," Mr. Ingleby. returned,  "if I lia'dn't been as big an ass - as  ovcr brayed in a pulpit, I should  have written long before. As it is,  I might have spared my meddling  nn'd left you there in peace."  "Not at all, I can never be too  grafful to you for writing,"- Philip  rejoined,  warmly.  "She was in J the wrong phice,  "Phil,.", continued Mir. Ingleby; "that  is how it all happened. Poor dear  child.'

"You see," he  said in conclusion, "those lwoolings  have been equally accidental on her  part."  "You aro a staunch friend," said  Philip, with a kind of gloomy satisfaction; "but how do you explain  tho disappearance'.'  Suicide?"  Mr: Ingleby quivered. "God only  knows," lie replied, "what a sensa-  tivo, friendless girl may do in desperation."  "Not that," Philip rejoined in'" a  harsh, voice. "I can't lay that: flattering unction to my soul." And  ho told his friend what, ho had just  learned from Sally Samson, and -was  surprised to find that Mr. Ingleby;  though viewing the ihtoU-igooceo with  gravity, was not much startled.  "And I could . have killed the old  woman for telling mo," he almost  Sobbed In conclusion.  "Philiji!

"I shall leave -no  stone unturned tO\ effect a;.mnrriage.  And I shall probably thrash him  publicly."

"Ho would take caro of that. Besides, Mr. Ingleby, what possible motive could she have for going  alone?" Ho did not liko to acid that  ho knew that ahe could have hnd no  money for thc journey.  "Two motives," settling himself in  a chair and crossing his logs with  tho air of nn assured advocate,  "first, to flee from temtation; secondly, to fly disgrace."  '* "Which" she merely courted," Philip  objected.  "Look     horo.    Phil,"    Mr. Ingleby  continued, earnestly.

Well,      I   am     wurranted  as it is in saying that many a poor,  drunken,   fool-mouthed   outcast   reeling along the streets to-day will pass  into      Heaven  before  these Pharisaic  Plummers  and  people.

He ventured to muke some, observation to that effect, saying that female honor was of such vital importance to society, that no price ;was.  too high to pay for it, that the suffering, even if- unmerited, of individuals, was as .nothing in ..comparison  with the    virtue of    the whole    sex, j  She did sell one or two of her    pictures."  "She would have come back long  ago in tlrat case," I'hilip replied,  thinking this theory too wild even  for conjecture.  "Would she?" asked Mr. Ingleby  with heart-stricken emphasis, and  both were silent for some moments  with fears they dared not express.  Then Mr. Ingleby told Philip of  Claude Medwny's strenuous denials of  all knowledge of Jessie's whereabouts  and his expressed anxiety, concerning  her. Ho nd'docl tho significant fact  that tlie supposed engagement between Med wny and his cousin was  undoubtedly at nn ond, sinco Miss  Lonsdale wus engaged to and about  to marry the Marquis of Bnrdextor,  whose family wns more remarkable  for antiquity than wealth. Finally,  nt Philip's request he related all that  ho knew of Jessie's history during  ���������liis absence in India and ended witli  a vivid Uopicturo of hor beauty and  grace, hor sweet manner, her modest  bearing, her singular intelligence und  taste.  "Upon my honor," Philip thought  when he left, greatly heartened by  his interview, "if the dear old fellow were ten .years younger I should  think ho was in, Jove with her himself."  The next afternoon he called at  Marwell Court. Sir Arthur took  his visit as a matter of course, regretted that Lady Gertrude was not  at home, spoke of the interest with  which lie':hod followed; his movement's  in India aiid heard of his'distinction  and talked of the Mutiny.  "Sir Arthur,"' Philip broke in at  last, -"you do not perhaps know that  I am one of the guardians of Miss  Jessie/Meade, respecting whoser-ah���������  connection with Some members : "of  your family I am nncious to'know  everything that can  be known."  Quite so," ! replied* Sir Arthur,  with a sudden change of manner.  "It is a snd business. I have, done  all I could to get'to the bottom of  it, in vain. It lias occasioned great  distress in my family; My daughter,  who is an invalid, as you may know;,.  was...attached to Miss Meado, whose  society was tlie means of beguiling  mnny weary Hours for her. My  niece. Miss Lonsdale, was first struck  by Miss Meade's singular beauty and  refinement and-brought her to iny  house, where- .1 was glad to receive  her as your future wife as ".veil as  for her own sake. ' Miss Meado was  not well placed at Redwoods. The  Plummers are excellent people, for  whom I have the highest respect, but  with  her."  "Miss Meade was born in that station," said Philip, stiflly, "and I  was bred in  it."  "Pardon me, Miss Meude was bred  out o.f it, and had virtually-left it in  becoming engaged to you. Whtcver  your breeding may, have bcon, Philip,  and you can choose it yourself, remember, you have- simply justified  5'our gentle birth. In spite of my  natural interest in a young lady of  beauty so rare," ho continued, "I  tried-to. discourage my. niece's intimacy with her. Miss Lonsdale'is in  the habit of forming sudden and nr-  dent friendships nnd ns suddenly getting- tired oi them. I considered  Miss Meade .too goo'd for such treatment. But ladies 'sometimes have  wills of their own. Miss Medway  then became interested' in"Miss Meade  who was able to soothe my daughter's sufferings as no one else.could.

Surely a man has but littlo .thought  of his  wife if h"o  compels  or  allows  hor to tramp around in a ilirly barnyard or stable after coirs.  Her placo  is in the house, antl if she takes pro-  po,'  care  of  that,   and   cooks  wholesome  meals  ior you and your  hired  man and 1 he children and keeps your  privileged  inmate and  enjoyed    every j clothes  clean  nnd  in  order,   s-hc  lias  comfort     and    consideration, as    my dono enough without  milking   cows,  daughter's companion.

Bo you  keep scrub  cows or     cows  ot any breed  that  arc  of  loss     two  hundred   pounds buttor capacity?    If  so, why not sell, trade or beef them  and get     some    good' ones  of  three  hundred pounds  or more butter    capacity? . Jt costs moro to feed, milk,  stable  a-nd pay  taxes  on  five or six  than  on. throe or four.

'.Not   making  a  business-  of selling milk  or  butter,  oh?     Well  what is tlie difference?    Y'ou are keeping cows to furnish' milk,  butter, and  cream  for    your  family  and.    costs-  more to feed six poor cows than four  good   ones.    'Why not  liavo  the  four  good   ones   and   sell   four   tons  more  hay and fifty bushels more grain that  th'o two extra cows would have eat-  on,  and put fifty dollars mow in the  bank for a rainy duy?    A plain bust-j  ness proposition'isn't .it?    Does your  wife milk  the cows  whilo your    boy  and dog  mind tliem  ih  the lnnc    or  in  one corner of  the pasture     field?  Try it^youj-solf onco  or twice   when  the flies^aro troublesome,' aird we believe you will realize tho necessity of  a change    in     th'o arrangements  for  milking.     Fix a nice clean.place     in  the     darkest     part     of your  stable  where J ho cows may bo tied and fed  a couple of quarts  of  bran  or meal  eacli;  -ip up  ihree or four old  bono  dust sacks antl     sow  thorn together;  throw this over tho cow while    you  are milking to keep tho flies off;   or  bettor still   to keep some Shoo    Fly  on hand nnd apply that two or three  times pei- week.    Tt pays in tho   increased  flow of milk as well as     re-  'diicing the annoyance while ihiliking.  If you   insist  on  having your     wife  do the milking this arrangement will  make it  th'o tempera tii re to about 03 degrees and churn. As soon as tho  -butter breaks nnd the butter globules aro about the sire of No. *1  shot, draw olT the buttermilk and  put in three or'.four gallons of cold  water; give,the tfhiirn a dozen turns,  nnd diitw off.

If  you take, the surplus to your grocer,  he will soon pny you an extra price  for what you have lo spare as liis  trade will call for your butler. -Bettor still find one or two private customers who are willing to.jnty a  good; price for good butter.< and sell  to them, got1 ing al least five cents  per pound advance over tlie -.market  price for common country 'Mutter.

Shipping poor sheep to market is  practically  i-iving  tliem  away.  To .secure the best prices, wool  should be sent to market in"Uio best  condition.  For poor lands and short pasture  sheep arc .decidedly, better adapted  than cattle.  Sheep are not naturally so well  adapted^to,rough ,usage and picking  their  own  as  cattle.  It takes blood to feed sheep ticks,  and blood is too costly to bo used  in thnt way.  Any animal when fed heavily  should have a variety of food. Tliis  is especially so with slieep.  All flocks should be graded according to age, size and: conditions  as  far as practicable.  'Sne most ; unfavorable condition  under which sheep can be-grown .is  to subject tliem to feeding on low,  washy pastures.  Jt is often the case Iliat poor sheep  are' kept at a po-ilive Ibsss when  good sheep under the same' circumstances  would   rclurn  a   profit.

(Extracts from Mr, Blair's Memorandum )  The "Memorandum, which appeiii-s in  the Montreal Star opens with a strong'  defence ' of Government. Ownership.  The Intercolonial be uiges has not had  a fair test. lis location is bud commercially and was dictated by political  and military reasons. As for its administration Mr. Blair argues (1) that  it has been free from secreD rates and  discrimination; (2) Unit, corporation  owned railways are by no ..means free  froni political influences and corruption; in .'management.. He heartily  approves Government Ownership of  railways in Canada.  "There is one certain means of putting the Intercolonial upon an interest  paying basis, and that is by the extension of its line. The "Montreal extension has done much; but lhe further  extension will do more."  ���������'All winter shipments ftoin west  ordinarily reach the seaports, to St.  John or Portland via lhe Canadian  Pacific antl Grand Trunk, respectively  and although the Intercolonial is fairly  well placed to carry freight to Halifax  and St. John it must always remain  excluded Irom that portion of the  business arising west of Montreal so  long as present, conditions continue,"  "The undersigned has long held the  opinion that a port nn the Georgian  Bay should be reached' by the Intercolonial and thus a connection had  =^^'withithei<i*-anr.diaii-*N'orl!!ein-!iy^vate:'  transport open and piaetirable for  from 4 to 0 weeks longer than canal  navigation."  ������������������To the undersigned, it has always  nppeared as if no good reason, founded  upon the highest political wisdom.  existed why lhe Province of Ontario  Ehould not be travel"=r-d by the Inter-  colonial. That Province has been the  storm centre of all opposition of the  Government llailway."  Nothing   it   would   seem   could   he  devised in the way  of a railway policy  better   calculated   to   strength?!!   the  Labor   Party  in    Ontario   than   this  ���������would do.    If evidence  were rciiuired  to support this view, it would be found  in the enthusiasm with which the people of that   Province   have approved  tha building of the Tcmiskarning Kail-  ���������way by   the   Provincial Government,  Isot a woid  is  heard  of   the folly of  Government Ownership in connection  Tfith  that   project';'  The fact is public  opinion is  ripe to ������< ccpt such n policy  as a boon  from the  Government, and  as   promising   relief   to   the cuiiDtry,  from what, rightly-nr wrongly, peopic  believe are  unreasonable exactions of  the corporation rai!.wiij\s.  It would be a grave political blunder  to respond to lhe western try���������and it  ���������must be responded lo���������without seeing  to it that the interests of the peoplo  Ct the east are not overlooked.  Mr. Blair next urges the purchase of  the Canada "(".astern ,by the Government.  Public opinion, Mr. Blair states, "is  now very decidedly opposed to the  bonusing policy."  If bonds may be disposed of by companies at a large discount, and stock  distributed gratuitously or on terms  which produce little or no cash at all  for construction ..and equipment purposes���������which has been forbidden by  the law���������the business such railways  will do will, for dividend pin poses, be,  always unduly burdened, and will be 11  grave handicap for all time to the  development of the interior. With  capital shares and bonds ultimately  coining into the hands of innocent  buyers at prices increasing with the  growih of the railway traffic, it will be  impossible for either a Railway Commission or the Government itself to  reduce tolls below a dividend paying  basis. Moreover the system is'not  sound. Whj' : should.a few people be  allowed to inake themselves millionaires in such a way?  ll uiay not: be possible to repair the  errors of the past. It is possible to  'prevent'lheir repetition in the case of  new railway unertakings in future.  The ideal policy as it appears to the  undersigned, for Government to adopt  so soon as it shall be deemed necessary  to take up the subject of a third transcontinental railway, would be to insure  lirst, that the railway shall not  promote the carriage of our export  products of our Imports southerly by  way of United Slates lines of railway;  but to and from the St. Lawrence in  summer and the ports of Halifax and  St. John in winter. That the Quebec  bridge be utilized as a part of the said  line and that the railway be pusheJ  westerly from that point hy degrees to  the Peace River dislrict. Through  lhe Rockies to the Pacific coast. In  the meantime it would be well tn  decline all assistance of railways to  which Government has not already  committed, and propose to Parliament  that railway charters covering this  ten itory be withheld.  I says: "Organized labor has proclaimed itself in favor of public ownership  nf railways and telegraphs on many  occasions. This polity has been  adopted as one of the planks in the  declaration of principles uf tho Trades  and Labor organizations of Canada,  and any parly iliat would favor public  operation and ownership, all other  things U-li.g 1 ([ual, will receive the  apprcval cf the organ"'.*'d working  pci'p-e nf I l.is country.' Mr. Borden's  policy fomvs nearer filling the bill in  llii-- P'lrliiMi.ir than Sir Wilfrid's, the  laller gentleman being opposed to  Government operation. In iny opinion  thu proper policy would bo to continue  the Intercolonial Railway right thru'  to Lhe Pacific coast."  Anothei who lakes exception to the  Premier's utterances is Mr. David A.  Carey. Mr. Carey is past president of  lhe Dominion Trades Congress .'and is  the district oflicer of the American  Federation of Musicians, representing  Canada east of Winnipeg. He says:  '���������Since tho Tiade Congress of Canada,  at its recent meeting, has gone on  record for the public ownership not  only of railways, but all public utilities  1 cannot see anylhing for the labor  organizations who havo repeatedly  affirmed'their loyally to that policy,  to do than to oppose Sir Wiirrid  Laurier. I am personally of opinion  that the labor , organizations will  uphold the party which advocates this  policy; I cannot sue why any labor-  man can vote otherwise when it is  considered that the rank and liie of  the labor movement in thi.s country  have always on all occasions approved  of the policy adopted by tlieir executive body, the Dominion Trades Congress. Personally I am stroagly in  favor of such a policy."  Mr. James Wilson, editor of the  Toiler, admits that it is hard for woi k-  ingnien sometimes to get away from  old political affiliations, hut as a  matter of principle they are bound to  support the part}' that advocates the  policy of public ownership. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in his speech at "Mnssc-y  Hall was very inconsistent. He  denounced.-; the .-..public operation of  railways, yet almost in the next,  breath he commended Government  ownership of telephone and telegraph.  I believe," said Mr. Wilson, "that the  working people will support the  principle of public ownership."  Why the Census Cost so Much.  Editor Herald :  Deak. Sik,:���������The Hon. Mv. Fisher  has given many reasons for the enormous cost of the 1001 census over that  of 1S91. The cost of the former (WOI)  up to the present being over ������1,200.1)00  and not yet finished, whilst that of  ISni was under S000.0OO.  The real reason for this vast dilTer-  ence in the cost came out before the  public accounts committee during the  session of 1003. The facts demonstrated were:  That the enumerators were engaged  at S3 per day of eight hours, and the  same rate for over time.  That two days after they wsre at  work they were recalled to a central  point by the commissioners to receive  fflTsinffsOTctiWffi.  FOR PUBLIC  Labor Leaders say Working-  men Should Support Mr.  Borden's Railway Policy���������The  Premier Criticiaed.  Ti'ls.ONTO, Nov, 1. ��������� Leaders of organ  i/.t'd labor arc far from pleased at being  told l>y Sir Wilfrid Laurier that the  public ownership plank in their plat"  foi rn ia not a British idea, but a  rorai.iKT jwd coscKrvm) i.v the  Unitbd Status.  Tha Premier"-! campaign against Mr.  Borden's" scheme of government owners-hip of lhe nr-w . transcontinental  railway has alienated much support  thai organized labor waa prepared to  give him. Leaders in the labor movement oro plainly staling their disappointment at and resentrjient of thc  Premier'* stand.  Mr. John A. Flett, of Hamilton, pasl  president of tiie Dominion Trades  Congress, and organizer in panada for  the  American   Federation  of  Labor,  This was the evidence given by the  census commissioner for West Middlesex, and there can be no doubt but  that all the commissioners had to do  the same.  To call the enumerators to a central  point after they had been somo days  at work, re-instruct them, and have  them go over Lhe ground they had  already covered, must have taken on  the average about ten days. There  were 3,800 enumerators engaged at SU  per day. The extra cost owing to  this blunder would be $201,000  The evidence taken proves that after  the work was nearly completed an  order-in-coiincil was passed on the  28th April changing thc pay of enumerators from $3 pei1 day to piece  work. This mode of payment would  deprive the enumerators of any compensation for the delay in being  recalled, and having to go ovei' the  work again. Many of the enumerators wrote to lho papers at the time  recording tjieir objections to the  change.  To satisfy the enumerator.*) they  were permitted   to  charge  for extras  10 the   extent   of   several     hundred  thousand dollars, as may ho seen from  11 reference to thc  Auditor-General's  report for lWZ-Ki.  The above   was   the main  cause of  the costliness of this census compared  to the last. Other mistakes were  made that were, not so costly in money  but their ultimate effect will be hurtful to the good name of Canada. I  need only call attention to a few of  these mistakes.  According to thc original figures  entered in the schedules by the enumerators, a largo area of land in Canada  yielded two crops during the census  year. This gavo rise lo 11 seeming  anomaly between the area in field  crops in schedule I, and the area ol  crops reaped, the particulars of which  aro given in schedule 5. These two  areas very seldom agree, for farmers  frequently sow biit do not reap,  whilst a vast number get two crops  from some portion of theirland during  the same year. From the evidence  taken before the public accounts committee Mr. Blue instructed the staff to  make these two areas agree. To do  this hundieds of thousands of figures  had to he changed at a very great  cost, and the inference to be drawn  from the figures' in the resulting  census bulletins is: that not a single  acre of laud in Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific yielded two crops  during the census year.  In the census of 1801 fallow land was  included in the item field crops, and  involved no change in the figures.  This time thc fallow land was added  to thc area in pasture and involved a  vast change in thc enumerators'  figures, increasing enormously the  apparent area in pasture. Other  items in the Agricultural schedules  were changed for one reason or other,  with the most' extraordinary results.  For instance the area of land occupied  in B. C��������� N. B., N. S., and P. E. I.,  was less by 2,SS5,0G2 acres in 1901 than  in 1891. This result was obtained by  cutting out large areas returned by  the enumerators as land occupied.  The area in field crops in 1901 was  less by 2,-111,31-1 acres than in 1891.  This arises from the'fact that the  area in fallow was-included infield  crops in 1S91. ,  According to thiscensus the farmers  of Ontario, Quebec, N". B., N. S., and  P. E. I., have cleared their farms of  ���������1,907,-131 acres of bush or forest, since  1S91, yet the cleared portion of their  farms is returned as 2,031,12S acres  less in 1901 than it '"was in. 1S91. This  result was obtained hy cutting out  large areas of forest returned as occupied, and adding a portion of the land  returned as forest, to pasture.  The greatest discrepancy occurs in  the area of pasture land.  The census of Agriculture taken  each year by lhe Ontario Government  gives the pasture land of Ontario in  1901 as 2,901.000 acres, The Census  Return Bulletin 17 has it 5,248,179  acres.  The excess area in the Census Return is owing to the fact that all  fallow land was added to pasture, and  also a large area of forest. To obtain  these results the original figures entered hy the enumerators in the  schedules have been changed in thousands of cases and at vast expense.  liather than be a party to these  changes I resigned rny position on the  ceriS".is--3taif-=in==thea--i5pring--of^=1902f  explaining to the "Minister of Agriculture my reasons for so doing.

This is "heads I win, tails you lose,"  for the only hope "Mr. CJalliher's supporters have is that the Government  may bo sustained," otherwise the  "grafters" will desert Mr, Galliher.

That is how Serjeant llullnntinu  was one of the counsel for the prosecution, ami he frequently referred to  the case as one of the most remarkable criminal mysteries lie had ever  had   io  deal   with.  German wns brought in by a policeman, charged with a trivial offence.  Ho gave the name of Salzniann, but  the police wore doubtful as to its  correctness, in spite of his vigorous  assertions that he had. nover borne  any other  name.  "We believe that you aro Carl  Franz, who in wanted on suspicion of  having murdered Martha Halliday,  at Kingswood Rectory," declared the  superintendent. And at las't, when  confronted by a detective brought  from Saxony, who declared ho was  Carl Vranz, the prisoner confessed ho  was tho sought-for man.  "1 uni Carl Fran/," he said.

'You  think Fran,?, as good as found guilty,  don't you?' lie asked. I nodded.  'Well, we're going to got him off,'  he said. I wondered at his entertaining so absurd an idea. What,  short of a miracle, could get Frunx  out of that dock?"  Kingswood Rectory was a large,  old-fashioned, red-brick building, four  miles from Keignte, standing remote  from other houses in its gardens,  and sw-ro-undod by shrubberies and  trees. In June, 180-1, thc rector and  his family were away for tx holiday  and the house liad been left in charge,  of a caretaker���������Mrs. Halliday, a  woman fifty-five years of age. Ono  morning the Rcigato police were summoned in hot haste to investigate  the circumstances surrounding this  lady's death".  She had been murdered!  Her body was discovered lying on  the floor of hcr bedroom, clothed  only in her nightdress. A gug���������a  piece of rag���������had been thrust Into  her mouih, nnd her hands and feet  had been tightly bound with' stout  string.  "She has been dead somo hours,"  declared the doctor whom the polico  oflicors  hnd   brought with  them.  Reside the body was a rough beech  cudgel���������a branch which liad clearly  been only recently torn from the tree.  'I'he string with which the woman's  limbs were tied was a peculiar hempen cord���������known as "rublay" coi'ii,  of special manufacture, and only  sold at very few shops. These might  form valuable clues, but they seemed  insignificant beforo the next discovery.  Lying on the floor under the dead  woman's bed the ollieers found a little packet of six papers. Three of  these related to one Joh'nnn' Carl  Franz���������a birth-certificate. a baptism-  certificate, and a service-certificate*���������  the last a species of testimonial  granted to German craftsmen. This  documcntO contained n minute description of Carl Fran/.'s personal  appearance, for the purpose of identification-.  The three other papers bore no reference to Franz���������at least, not by  name. One wa.s a letter, signed  "Adolphe Krohn," begging monoy  from some lady, whose name and address was not given; another was a  note from Mademoiselle Tiotjens, tho  celebrated singer. It bore a date  three days previous to the murder,  and was an answer to an appeal  made to her for alms. The last  document was a list of names of  prominent people, with their addresses.  The packet of papers must have  (���������lipped out of the murderer's pocket  while he was bending over his victim, and fallen under the bed without his suspecting his loss. In the  slang of Scotland Yard trackers, it  seemed that th'e perpetrator of the  crime had "left his visiting-card."  Overcome by some sudden alarm of  discovery, th'e murderer had become  blind and deaf to everything around  him, and tailed with only one thought  ���������that of escaping from the scene of  hi.s crime. Th'e contemplated robbery  iv.-is forgotten in that rush of fear.  Not a thing was missing from tho  house. Kven the murdered iwoman's  pur.-e. wiih her money in" it, was  found untouched in thc pocket of her  dross hanging behind  the door.  An'examination of the house and  grounds disclosed the fact that there  ~~ nad^b^~n^"Wo.^ihen'^cohcerned"nn^thc-  rrimc. They had entered by a window, the latch' of which they had  'orccd. and had lied by the front  Ioor. which they had drawn to, but  not  fastened  behind  them.  With that minute, ollicial descriji-  tion of Carl Franz which the police  liad found in the death-room, it did  r.ot Mill possible that ho should  long elude them. Thc detectives  quickly discovered that two Hermans  ���������^-ono short and dark, and hi.s companion tall and fair-haired���������had  stayed at an inn in Heig.'tte. The  tall, fair man tallied with lhe description  of  Franz.  II.  There was only one shop ir. lieigato  at which thc "rublay" card could bo  bought. Thc shop assistant examined ihe piece the police had unbound  from  the  dead  woman's  limbs.  "1  sold  some  of  that,  cord   to   two  foreigners,"     she      said.       "One  wa.s  short   and   dark,   arid   the  other    was  mil  and  fair"!      They  were  foreigners,  ��������� I  know,   for   they  talked   so  strange-  lv."  "What was the tall, fair man like?'  -asked the oflicors; and the woman  described  him.  "That's Carl Franz!" wa.s the officer's  comment.  Later, on the night of the crime,  a laborer had seen the two men  standing beneath a beech-tree. Ono  of the tree's lower branches had been  torn off, and the rough end of the  cudgel found beside the dead woman  exactly fitted  the gap  in thc trunk.  Leaving behind thcm theso awful  testimonials to their visit to Kings-  wood, the two foreigners ha.:l afterwards disappeared, as if the earth  had swallowed  them.  Several weeks of keen search resulted in no trace being discovered of  Carl Franz. When it began to bo  thought that, in spite of all precautions, he must hare succeeded in  icaving the country, ht* was sudrlenly  found in a cell in a London police-  station.   One    day a  tall,  fair-haired '  1 am innocent.    L swear il!  The prisoner lodged in a house in  Whitechapol, and on the- detectives  proceeding to search there they discovered whnt appeared to be another  important link in tho chain of evidence whicli should place the hangman's noose round Franz's neck.  In a drawer was one of Carl  Franz's shirts, rolled up nnd tied  with a piece of conl. 'I'he cord was  "rublay"���������the very same kind of  cord as that with wliich thc murderers had  tied Mrs. Halliday!  "Counsel for the prosecution have  brought evidence, a muss of delails,  which I am well aware must appear,  at first sight, to almost conclusively  bring home tho guilt of that, poor  woman's death to th'e prisoner," said  the counsel for the defence. "I hope  ���������to be able to prove to you that all  thesa apparently damning facts nro  absolutely consistent with the perfect innocence of tho accused uinn���������  Carl Franz."  A few months previously, amongst  the passenger!-! landed from a steamer at Hull, was a lull, fair-haired  German youth, with* only a little, silver in his pocket, and in his hand  a little bundle, containing n second  wuit of clothes and some treasured  papers. The passenger was Carl  Franz, bent upon making his way to  America, where he had heard fortune  smiled upon the worker more freely  tlian it did  in  the Fatherland.  Disappointment awaited him at  Liverpool, he could not obtain a pus-  sago, and Franz determined to plod  to London. It was a. long tramp,  and on thn road he chanced to fall  in with friends!���������Germans, like himself���������one short and dark, calling himself Adolpho Ki'oh'n. and the other  tall and fair. Tlio latter was " re-  mnrkablv similar to Carl I-'ranz himself. 'Franz told litem all about  hlm.-ielf, and was delighted when they  invited him to join them in their  journey to London. Call Fran/, was  to learn thc folly of making friends  too quickly.  "What aie you doing?" asked the  tall man one'night, whon tho party  had made themselves as comfortable  ns they could under tho side of a  rick. Franz was busy writing with  a pencil in a little book he had produced from his bundle.  "I Keep a diary." he replied. "I  put down in it what's chanced during  the dny. I've kept it up every clay  since  T  loft  my  home  in  Saxony."  The tall stranger was interested.  nnd he incpiircd about the othor  papers which  Franz had  witb him.  "They aro papers of identification  and my work certificate." answered  Franz.  "If the*, "re no use to you you  might let ine have thorn." suggested  the stranger coolly. "We're so much  alike that no one would suspect tho  papers wore not mine." Hut Fran/,  refused  to  part with them.  A few mornings later, waking after  a night spent on some straw in the  corner  of  a     field,   Franz  found     h'is  OCKKWOOOtXKWOOOOOOOOKXl J fighting with" weapons,"  and ken-jit-  su, which' is a remarkable long-sword  drill practised    with bamboo sticks,  Thero is    only    tlio one room in tho  building,   und.  it  is of extraordinary  sizo.

One may livo in  Japan for years and never cease to  wonder at their power of endurance  and tlieir remarkable muscular development, Aiid tlioy nro proud of  it, and spare no labor that will increase thoir strength. But most of  Japan's defenders are from the higher ranks of the race, the old soldiery, the Samurai, wiio may now be  called the top of ,the great middle  class, and tho children of tliis class  aro trained from babyhood to endure  all things in a manner tliat makes  tlie average European stand aghast.  In Yokohama, I happened, during  an afternoon's walk, to come upon  tho drill-grounds of tlie public  schools of the city. Tho boys wore  all drossod in white-duck u.niforms.  They wero divided into companies,  and each company was commandeS  by a master, a teacher of gymnastics. There were a number of  companies lined up together when I  happened upon tho scene, and tlie  teachers were giving their commands  in unison, tho result being a unison  of  PHECISE   MOVEMHN'T  TREATMENT BI DEPUTY  TRIAL  PATIENTS    FOB  RICH  INVALIDS.  that was superb. Tt was the ordinary calisthonic drill, but I had never  scon it so well done. These little  fellows, not ono of whom looked  more than ten or twelve years old  from our standpoint, took it all in  ns solemn earnest as if thoy were a  regiment of soldiers being reviewed  by their Emperor, and it was hard  to beliove they were boys from the  public schools come together from  districts all over tho city. And they  woro all armed with small rifles, as  1 discovered when I walked about  the grounds and found detachments  here and there lying upon tho grass  with thoir guns proudly stacked in  even rows, after the manner of a  camping army.  At another quarter of tho groat  green square were running contests  going oil -under the direction of  teachers. the. unusual feature of  which was that when' the boys had  the end   of  the  course  companions gone, nnd his bundle���������his ; reached  precious clothes, his diary, his papers  of identification���������was gone,  too.  Such was the story Franz told.

Crash!     crash;     tho    heavy bamboo  sticks  came  down  upon the  tops  of  heads,     upon  unprotected arms  and  necks.    Thoy backed each other    all  over tlio    place,  fighting desperately  and working to get a final blow upon  the tops     of each others'   heads.  Tlie ono    who did this was counted  winner, and instantly tlie combatants  were down upon tlie floor giving tho  ancient  Samurai 'sword  saluto,'   and  all the time the terrible yelling continued.,    I was told it was done   to  mako tliem seem more terrible to tho  enemy, but I thought it was a most  fortunate  custom,   simply because it  would be awful to have to take such  punishment as was inflicted nn'd make  no sound.     I think tlio yells were   a  very good   ..vent  for a  very natural  feeling.    Tlien  there was a class     of  little fellows, of ten and twelve, who  would, all together, sot upon a single  big teac'her    and  punish hlni  to  the  utmost  of  their   immature  strength,  while taking without a sign tho punishment  which* he purposely inflicted  upon  tliem.     Onco  they succeeded  in  disuniting  hirn,   and   this  gave  tliem  tho right to  try and get his helmet  off,   which,     if  they wore  successful,  would make him thoir prisoner.  And  thoy  took  after  him  witli yells  like  littlo     demons,   nobody  paying     tho  slightest  attention  to  theni,   it     all  being a  part  of a very serious business.     They   finajly  caught  liim  and  tripped  him,  one" littlo chap running  between his  logs -to- accomplish  this.  Then  they piled  on  top of him  and  worked like littlo beavers.    It was a*  vory  good     imitation   of  a   football  game.     But  tho teacher managed to  keep his helmet on for nearly a half-  hour,  while ahout a  down  boys  did  their combined utmost to get it oft*.  Finally    they    succeeded,     and     the  teacher    came    up    bareheaded    "but  smiling,  with his arm all  torn     and  bleeding.     He went  down upon     the  floor  before his  little pupils  and offered tliem his sword, hilt foremost,  but  th'oy witli equal courtesy declined   to  accept  it,..-..;and  restored     his  helmet and liis liberty,  after    which  the fight began  again.

"The average human being lias a  pronounced objection to medical experiments being conducted on his own  person,-however- salutary tho. 1'cs.ilts  aro expected to bo."  So spoke a celebrated doctor to  the writer of this article, and he added: "On iiinuiiivcmblo occasions  wlion a certain courso of treatment  is recommended to patients, who nro  at the sumo time, both rich", sceptical, und perhaps nervous, lliey express a desire to wntcli tho effects of  tho same treatment on uuotlier person beforo submitting to it I hem-  selves; and somctinicp they liavo been  known to put thoir liands in their  pockets for large sums of money in  order that thoy may be completely  satisfied in this way."  Thus, a few weeks ago, according  to tho snmo authority, a new treatment for cancer was announced by a  Continental doctor, whicli could  only bc properly tested at liis own  placo in Germany. Thoro was one  case of  A RICH ENGLISH I-ATIE-N'T,  who liad tried all recognised methods  of dealing with this terrible malady  without success, and he was at this  timo not only sceptical as to anyr  thing new, but not well' enough to  mako a long journey unless fairly  well satisfied beforehand that there  Was at least a respectable chance of  tlio results being satisfactory. - His  own doctors wore nlso doubtful as to  whether the evidence nfi'oitied justified  taking such a  course.  Accordingly tlio patient offered to  pay all tho expenses of any other  poor sufferer whose case might bo  approved by his medical man as being very similar to liis own, nnd to  give him a bonus of ������1,000 as well.  on condition that ho would proceed  at onco on a three months' courso  of this now treatment,- and roport  weekly to his patron as to tho results. The n:*atter was arranged, a  patient selected, and lie is nt tho  present time putting the treatment  to  the test',  and reporting.  Again, a couple of years since, a  middle-aged gentleiann who is pretty  well known in London society, and  who had for a long time boon living  a" vory health-breaking sort of life,  fell ill with a complication of maladies, and his doctor, when consulted,  proscribed a very drastic and unpleasant courso of treatment, which  involved long abstention from almost everything whicli in the patient's opinion made life worth living He declared that,-however ill  ho was, ho would like to sco t'ho effect of tliis sort of doctoring on  somo other person before lie underwent such sacrifices on his own account.  A TRIAL THAT FAILED.  It. so hapi'oiied that a precisely  similar caso came under thc attention ' of the medical man about the  same time; but tho patient was poor,  and could not leave his work for  such a long period as this treatment  would involve.

Thc next nfiernoon, about the fulling of dusk, saw Philip walking

Ashamed of Jossio. That was indeed
n strango experience and yot it was
tho strongest-in nil tlio Wild medley
of agonized feelings' that surged
within him. Hc pitied her much,
but he condemned her moro. Nothing, he thought, with the stern Pharisaism of male kindred, could pulli-
nto, much loss* excuse cor/.luct such
ns hers; those rccret meetings augured deception as well as a frailty that
mado him shudder; piteous ns tho
idea of a self-sought, death of despair
wns, it was still the one sign of
grace to be hoped for. Rut he did
not think that she had taken lior lifo;
the country" talk, tho cold looks and
averted heads of her acquaintances
would not provide a motive strong
enough for so desperate a measure,
and no more pressing motive could
ho argued. He did-not know what

that "Wood ways" could scarcely

more so as sho saw homespun roughness, in contrast with thc refined olo-
Cnnce. almost splendor, of Marwell

with these thoughts; he asked himsolf again . and..again what he-could

water splashing through thc cracks
when the groat beams rebounded

heavenly pleasure. If one performed

Ho 'did not liko Mrs. I'liuninei' jP��.*"m

Tho meadow was while now, thc
river was black in the dusk by contrast with its snowy banks; the
edges) of tho timbers woro scaled by
great white flakes of ice, thc tide
was running up, flowing strongly beneath his feet,us-hc stood on thc odgo
of tho floating timbers slippery with
snow; tho grove was heavy with
shadows. About a foot ocyon 1 the
timbers tho . channel was deep; , be.
know it well, and so did Jessie; a
slight, spring from lhc springy balks
nnd one would bo in mid-stream out
of depth. No house was in sight
but thc ark. built-on a boat at thc
water's edge, tho grove woulcl shelter one from the gaze of passers-by.
Sally Samson, the old woman who
lived tliere, had seen her from'hor
door. Roger had round thc handkerchief on,the timbers; but what .motive had' Jessie for Kclf-dcstrucUon ?
Roger maintained that the scandal
had crazed hcr, but Philip.thought it
would take something stronger than
moro talk* to drive a girl who held
No secret meetings, received, jewels, and
wns false to hcr absent lo*vr ond
friend, to desperation. ' How false
Jossio had been, to how solemn a
troth-plight, to what sacred memories ! False to hor dead futhcr and
all her youth. Yet hc did not n>-
proach 'himself for his own passion-
ale swerve from loyalty; he had conquered his heart's desire and sacrificed all his hopes of advancement to
keep faith with this frail, slight creature. Besides, hc was a man, nnd
uro not men's temptations heavier
than women's '? aro not'thcir passions
stronger? Must not a, man lovo! be heard,
when under the spell of beauty and "Pound
fascination ho does not sock ���? Js it
not criminal for a woman to love nt
nil except at thc word of command ?
Do good women foci tlio beauty of

arrogance, drawing conclusions from
arbitrarily ��� fashioned premises, such
wondering when the latter spoil thc
syllogism by n false conclusion, and
not dreaming that either premise can
bo false.
Musing thus, hc wont along th'e
foot-path toward tho black ark,
whence one red glow from n little
window gave comfortable nssurance
of warmth und humatrity amidst the
blnck and     white   desolation  of     the!

cap-frill- of hor cap. tho same
brown arms, which, like the
seemed carved in old oak; the
dingy crossover shawl, the
scanty dark skirt thnt hc remembered
in boyhood: Summer and winter,
indoors and out, Sally's attire never
varied, thus sho rowed on thc river
iu sun or wind, Wot or cold.
Ho had brought hor a packet of
snuff, and some Indian figures to add
to hor curiosities. She received
thorn wilh a grunt of satisfation;
then she rose, and opening n tiny
cupboard above llio littlo fireplace
brought forth' n black bottle containing some pale, clear cognac which
she poured into one of lhc old china
tea-cups and gave him. nn:l which
hu knew woll -had never passed thc
custom-house. While sho did this,
ho took rapid .'.lock of thc familiar
objects in tho cabin, and saw on a,
littlo shelf with tho Bible and Pilgrim's Progress, a railway timetable, which his quick eve made out
to bo of lust year's date.
He talked of old times, and of the

Then, when i'ho paused ancl fell to
staring before hor into tho glowing
wood-coals, he said without preamble :
"Who was in the boat with you aud
Miss  Jessie   last  October,   Sally '.'"
"Never a s'oul," she replied, still
gazing inlo the fire, hor head slightly bowed forward and lier hands
resting on her kneccs.
"And how long wore you rowing

ho added, keeping his hand before**his
oyos whilo his elbow was on thc

the eager, pained interest that ho
could keep out of his' voice but not
out of his fnco.
"Matter of a hour; tide agen us,"
sho said, ' absently, being, for "i'o
practised a. story-teller, short - of

"And* you had to pull well, wanting to catch tho mid-'tlay boat, no
doubt?" ho continued, vainly trying
to  speak carelessly.
But either somo vibration in his
voice or his persistent" catechising,
roused the old woman, nnd she turned and eyed liim sharply.
. "Who's talking of boats?" sho
"Look hero, Sally," eaid Philip,

Dr. Chase's Ointment has done for
mc. 1 had suffered from itching piles
for over sixteen years, and suffered
badly nt thnt. There have been
times when I could and would have
pui an end to it all if it had not
heen for the thought of meeting God.
Some peoplo mny think I am stretching it a point, but those wiio have
suffered as I have will know.
j At other times 1 have felt T

1 came to know of Ur. Chase's Ointment. 1 have bad doctors' advice
and remedios to no.end and could

my caso, as it said ior itching piles
and   saved  painful   operations.
As I could not get Dr. Chaso's
Ointment from my chemist, I wrote
to my brother, Mr. IT. Shelley of

I am suro you will be surprised to
get this letter from this corner of

It you cnclo&V} a stamp for reply,
Mr. Shelley would no doubt gladly
answer any question about his case.

A groat many experiment!* in tho
feeding of 1'u.rm animals have boon
made, but thoy have been incomplete
as a basis for estimating the absolute cost and profits of aniuuil product-ion, because us a rule thoy cover
only a small portion of iho animal's
life. Kcnli'-'ing lho importance of
more complete tlnia iu this' respect,
several of tlio experimental stations
have mado records of the amount and
cost of food consumed by various animals from birth to maturity. While
these observations need to bo repealed many times under a variety
of conditions before it would be safo
to draw too positivo conclusions
from thcm, the results already obtained nro suggestive and of considerable practical valuo.
Mr. W. Clark has recorded data,
regarding the cost of raising hoifo.i;
calves. In a number of cases lhe ro-?
cord covered from birth to maturity
���that is, for approximately two
years. One of the calves weighing
at birth -50 pouirdn, consumed during
tho first your 159 pounds of whole
milk, 2,7.\"S pounds of skim milk, CO
pounds bran, 224 pounds of liny, and
was pastured for one hundred and
sixty-one days. When one year old
she had cost $12.86 and weighed 4-:J5
pounds. During tho second year tho
ration was mado up of sorghum buy,
silage, ont straw, corn stover, and a
littlo cotton seed and bran. The
period of pasture covered two hundred nnd twenty-four days. Tho cost
of thc food Wus ��9.09 and she weighed at the end of the year (idii pounds.
She dropped hor first calf a few
days before sho was two years old.
Thc total cost of food up to this time
was S21.05.
by two other calves, which lhc nu-
thor believes made a normal growth,
cost $11.4.0 and .913.01) respectively,
for the first year. One of theso
calves weighed 4,'3 pounds at birth
and during thc first year consumed
92 pounds of whole milk, 1,192 lbs.
of skim milk, 1522 pounds hay, and
204 pounds of bran, and wus on pasture ono hundred and sixty-five days.
Tho other calf weighed 50 pounds nt
birth and was fed in much the same
way, weighing wlien a year old ">50
Data nre also recorded regarding
throe other calves, which Lho author
believes consumed too little skim
milk during the first year and hence
did not make satisfactory- growih.
Furthermore, they were accidently
bred too early. One of these, calves
weighed 50 pounds at birth. '"During
the  first  year  250  pounds  of    whole

Mr. AV.  M. Lawrence was the, chairman and on  the platform wore seated Messrs. F..  B. Lewis, .1. M.Kollio, .Tohn Abrahaiiison, itobt. Caley and G. M. Clarke.

He read,  from his notes, furnished no doubt,  by Mr. McPherson, the stalwart representative of Liberalism in this riding,  of a speech Mr/Borden had made some  years iigo in reference to railway' construction but Mr. Galliher did not  make reference to the fact that Mr.  Borden as leader of tho Conservatives  in Canada declares that if the people  of Canada elected him today at the  polls he would build a railway from  the Atlantic to the Pacific, and at once'  and that construction would begin  from tho_B. ; C. end simultaneously  with the eastern portion of Canada  and for the sole benefit of thy people  of Canada and to be operated by an  independent commission appointed by  the '"Dominion parliament..  Next ; question 'taken up by Mr.  Galliher was Sir Wm. Mullock's Coiu-  ,ptilsorj'=Ai'l!itration-BiII,^-;iiid=statod-  liis position aud attitude in connection  with this bill, He stated tiiat he wns  approached by railway men and asked  to oppose the bill as being against  their best interest, He, Mr, Galliher,  at: once wont to Sir William nnd told  him that hu could not&iippoi't thc hill.  Sir William, he says, had the hill  altered three times, and had at last  when he found thnt thu bill was so  harmless Ihat it would not hurt thej  railway men or help them very much,  endorsed it, thus putting upon the  Statute book legislation that simply  was not worth the paper it was written  upon, a statement which Mr, Galliher.  made at field tlio other niglit to railway men, who refused to endorse  under any condition Mr, Galliher's  position in this matter.  Next question'he. referred'.to was  protection to B. C. lumber, and he  bubbled, over with enthusiasm., lie  0111 braced'the lum boriiien throughout  British Columbia, and ���������. incidentally  stated JJ. O. was not getting justice  and should have .protection, but he  was tumble to go to Sir AV"in,'-Mulock'  and other 'members of thc government  and get; the matter righted nnd give  justice fo the B. C. lumber industry.'  In one voice Mr. G.-dliljer decried protection and in Ihe next advocated protection.  Mr. Gnllilier did not tell the electors  why he voted to h,ive tiie election in  this riding postponed until three  weeks aftei' the general election  throughout I.he Dominion. Hu could  have staled that he Imped the Govt-  orninent would win and lie would then  have a hotter chance and only possible  chance to get to Ottawa again���������whicli  i.s paramount to a deliberate insult  to the electors of this riding.  Shortly after 10 o'clock the meeting  dispersed'with cheeis called for by  Mr. Lawrence, chairman.  last, when Master AVally Clark was"  presented with the gold medal donated by Br.
