Dangerous Sweets   Which Parisian
Confectioners   Sell   to
the  Public.
Much stir has recently been created in the newspapers by the statement that, in future, confectioners
will not be allowed to sell the popular sweetmeats known us cKocolato
liquors without a license, as they
contain  alcohol.
This is true concerning most of
them, but it is only a part of the
truth with regard to the Parisian
confections known as "Angels'
tears." These are, it. is regrettable
to say, largely sought after by a certain section of fashionable society,
and they are tilled witli a coarse spir-
'it of enormous strength', the naturo
of which' is masked by tlie casing of
swcetsLulT by whicli it is snirroundod.
So volatile is this spirit that if
one of the sweets is held, by means
of a pair of sugar-tongs, in the flame
pf a lighted candle for a few seconds, it explodes with a loud" report, just like a minature bomb. One
silly young girl -liad her mouth badly blistered tho other week through
holding one of tliose liquors between
her teeth for some time, in play, before . biting it. Tlie heat, of hcr
breath evaporated the s-pirit, and th'o
sweet  blow  up.
Kpicures say that, tliere is only one
way of pro]*t;rly enjoying a .meal of
sikate, mid that' is to hang it* until
tlio fisli begins to .turn black. This*
is a dangerous ; disli,, however, for

A piece of skate in this "gainey"
condition has been pluced in a closed
glass vessel, through whicli an electric wire passed. After the gas
liad been allowed to accumulate for
a short timo, the current .was switched on, wifh the result that the glass
vessel wa.s blown to the other side
of tlio table upon which th'e experiment* was  being  conducted.
It is easy, therefore, to imagine the

His Majesty     King      Edward   la
tbe Most Versatile Englishman.
King Edward is a sailor by training-, and can splice a rope or climb
lhe rigging as easily ns many of his
gallant lads iu blue. Hut since
those happy "Britannia" days he,
hns played a practical purl, in nearly
every calling and trade iu tho Empire. The King has brewd one
hundred gallons of beer, and been a
tram driver. He has sold goods
from a llower stall, and run a printing ma.-:l:>,iic. In one day he made
twelve pats of butter, sailed his own
yacht, experimented with a new
rifle, and delivered nn address whilo
showing hi.s remarkably intimato
knowledge of machinery: Here are
a few of his Majesty's trades and
attainments, in which at some time
or other he has taken active and
practical interest : etching, engraving, ship-building, book-binding, motoring, boring, mining, hunting-, acting, weaving, spi lining, pottery, and
engine-driving. Altogether,      tho
King has ovor two hundred accomplishments, besides being our most
popular soldier and sailor, and*.Britain's  greatest diplomat.
Next to the King, no man, ��� perhaps, has a larger number of callings than. Mr.. Carnegio, whose list
totals something, like one hundred
and'forty.' Mr. Carnegie has been
nn, errand boy, ancjy.ho has also
spent many' "weary months at tho
drudgery of clerking. Ho has boon
a stoker, a builder, nnd has worked
at every branch of steel-making.
Tram-car buildrtig is another of his
attainments, and hc has run a meatpacking machine. Besides all this,
he may bc described accurately ns a
house-agent, itockbroker, milliner,
librarian, builder, and scores: of
other callings.

worker." The combination looks
odd,, yet it is quite correct. As a

THE EVILS JF TIPPING  A FOLLY THAT HAS REACHED  ITS   CLIMAX.  Scandalous and    Unmanly .     Way  of  Bleeding  the  Public.  Tlint  old    saw,   "The' hand      that  rocks tho crudlo rules tho world," has  the. merit of fundamental truth',, says  too     London     Express,   but  theie  is  mucli   to  be said" al.s.)  for  tliu     now  unci revised version,   "Tlie hunt! vhnt  slips the-silver rules tho roast."  The wealthy traveller puts his less  fortunate fellows to considerable inconvenience when ho secures a railway carriage to himself by "tipping"  the guard, the wealthy hotel visitor,  by preliminary nnd promissory tips  to the liead waiter, secures lightning  service at the expense of tho poorer  visitors, and tho wealthy guest at a  country House, wlioso generosity is  known to tlio family butler, receives  tho almost undivided attention of  the servants.  The evil of tho "tipping" system  is universally admitted nnd deplored,  but until recently littlo effort has  been mnde to mitigate it.. It is a  fair instance of poetical justice. The  insidious system, if it did not originate in these isles, lias, nt any rate,  grown to be most rempant among  tho English speaking peoples.  There aro really cheerful signs, however, ol' rebellion against a form of  oppression which weighs heavily on  men and women with moderate  means. A popular firm of caterers  has dared to open a huge restaurant  where t'neir employees are absolutely  forbidden to receive grntuties of any  kind.  Countless tea shops tnl.bndon  t'lu-ive on th'e  " NO ."GRATUTIES" FLAN.  Then, why should not restaurants  conducted on the snmo system prosper "equally well? It is well kiiown  tliat hundreds of London waiters  work without "a* wage and are absolutely dependent for their living on  tlie tips thoy roceivo. If tips woro  abolished in nil hotels and restaurants there would probably be a strike  of waiters. That would bo unpleasant, of course, but in tho end the  proprietors would be forced to pay-  each man a fair wage, and the public  would triumph'.  In country housoj lifo some half  dozen hostesses aro leading a reform  movement wliich, it is expected, may  have--far reaching results. In one  large house whero a big shooting  party has already foregathered n  bmall collection .box^is placed "In tho  room of cai'n guest.

Tt cannot be denied that the Englishman has brought tho trouble upon himself, ond that thc American  has made matters worse.

The Rossland   JUiner formerly the  property   of   the controllers    of   the  Centre Star and Vi* r Eagle compan-  es, has   made   a   discovery:  failures, to pay dividends, on the part)  the War Eagle, which have been  operated under thr same management,  have so far produced 053,032 tons of  ore,which has averaged about ������1-1.40  per ton,, or a total value of $8,070.(501.  Of this, more than ,$I.S72,S3l lias gone  to pay railways and smelters for  freight, treatment, refilling and marketing charges. The balance, amounting to about .$3,200,000, has been  received by these mines, and (he.  .whole of this has by them been dis-.'  biii'scd'.for labor and supplies in connection with Ihe milling of lhe oro  and the development and equipment  of the mines, and f may say that, so  far as the "War Ragle is concerned a  large uinounl lias been borrowed in  addition."

If the Miner possessi-a  any common sense, it will "go away  hack ancl sit down": it cannot "fool all  the people all the time."  What  is the gravamen of  the Pro*  linchil Government's ollY-nt-v?

AVhy, lhe whole  2 per cent - tax collectable was a mere  fly on the ivhoel, in comparison with  losses occasioned by experimental  plants, refusal to discuss issues with  workingiiic-n and a policy of centralization at Toronto. W'e honor those  who have invested llieir money in this  Province; but we do not propose that  lhe Rossland Miner, when shedding  crocodile tears over Messrs.

Such goods were usually composed of one or more roasted grains  (barley,    nrheat, etc.,)    pea  hulls, and a paste made of wheat mi-  dlinffs.   Flour, meal and other ground  gTains contain a little soluble material  but, as is -well kno-wn, the bulk of tho  material in them is insoluble.    Wh������n  the cereals are roasted, a portion t.i  rendered soluble, making the roasted  material more soluble than    the   nn*  roated.     The infusion of    the   cereal  coffees  studied  at  the  Maine  station  -was in every case made according to  the directions accompanying the ma- ,  terlal.   The amount of the cereal cof- ���������  --f es'-which-���������������' as -recommended���������to���������bo-]  used  varied considerably, and  conse- '  quently the strength  of thn  Infusion '���������  varied    within    rather    wide    limits j  iWhen  made  according to  directions, ���������  a pound of material yielded from to 20  to ISO cupa. j  The average amount of soluble material In the different samples (and  hence the total food material in thc  Infusion, not counting sugar and  milk or cream added) varied from 22.4 j  to 51.2 per cent.

It was not long before I'hilip found  some relief iu an outburst of grief,  but     Claudo     remained  culm. Ik*  knew in that moment of exceeding  anguish thnt he hud long . known  hopo to be dend, sudden and unexpected though tho end wns. The  eeeds of denth. ho well knew, as .Jos-  Bio did, though neither of them dared confess it, and though the doctors only hinted at danger, had  been sown in that winter of privation nnd mental priin, fostered by  those final days and nights of wandering in London. He knew it and  ncceptod the inevitable doom, with  tho awful, acquiescent grief which  is "a solemn scorn of ills."  "I am glad that you came," hc  said, gently, even tenderly, as ho  led I'hilip from the chamber that  had suddenly become a sanctuary;  she was so fond of you. She will hunger no more," he added, gliding unconsciously into Biblical phrase,  "neither will she suitor any moro  pain."  Ife came with a bleeding heart to  look upon the woman he had slain,  when she was arrayed for the last  chill, solemn bridals. He thought  of what he had dono to blast thp  sweet llower before him, and of  what might have been for one so  young, so lovely, and so highly gifted, if he had never crossed her  path. Strange, very strange and  terrible, even incredible, it was  that those beautiful lips did not  part, ��������� as sometimes he felt thoy,  must, to answer the agonizing  thoughts of his heart; that tho  the fringed eyelids did not open  when he was so near tind so sorely  needing tho deep love-light darkened forever in tho veiled blue eyes.  That she should be wrapped in that  shroud of chill, unbreaking silence  was so awful, so intolerable���������yes,  and so just; for it was his own  work.  JVhen he entered the darkened salon, tho room which but yesterday  was bright with her living presence,  and in which she now lay pnle in her  white drappcries among whito roses  and   orango  blossoms,   ho  placed     a  "If T could atone!" ho groaned;  ".lassie, Jossio! you know that 1  would have died for you!" But ho  could not; nor could ho alono for  the waste of this sweut young lifo  nr tluit of another ho never lorgot;  nil his life would bo penanco, tho  penance of blank desolation; nothing  could  undo   tho  past.

Hard, hard it wns that  sho should suffer for him; his heart  rose against tho injustice, ho did not  feel that heing ono, they must share  both ill and good.,, Everywhere . ho  saw; tho innocent suffering for the  guilty; ho saw -Fanny-'iir her death  agony���������when did he not seo Fanny?  ho saw the martyred innocents on-  trupped to vice in great cities; ho  saw Philip an outcast in his babyhood, rescued from beggary by n  poor man's charily, branded with a  life-long stigma, and abhoring his  own gentle name; and a faint vision  of tho oneness of tho human race began to gleam upon him, with some  feeling of tho horrible fruitfulncss of  evil, and the ineffaceable nature of  human conduct. Yet Jessie did not  suffer; one glance at the deep and  nwod rcposo in tho sweet face rebuked such a thought  "The,, wonder, was not yet quite gono  From that still look of hers."  Sho was gifted, such an artist,  Philip," ho said that evoning, when  tho earth had closed over lier; "and  no ono could look in her faco without being the bettor for it."  Then ho showed him a paper in her  .handwriting, a list of small gifts of  toys and souvenirs of tho places sho  had seen in this first foroign tour,  for, each of, her friends, including a  porcelain ' pipe' for ' AlSralinm,���������' -with*  a mossago ,to each friend, dated a'  week back, arid showing that sho  know how near her end was. There  ivas also a sealed separate packet  for Philip and ono for her husband,  to be oponod a week after hcr death,  as if sho had pictured the increasing  ache of bereaval that would como  to each of them after the first shock  had.gone by, and thus tried to comfort them.  Then a very noble and tender  friendship, which haH already taken  root, grew up and blossomed between Claude and Philip in this common bereavement, which drew thorn  together all tho moro because thoy  shared tho loss with no one in any  great degrco. Kach could speak of  Jessie to tho other and to no one  else, each had boon lovod by hcr and  . knew hor as no ono else had done,  Her soul was taking diaughts of j CMh hnf| jlt ��������� different degree  vital joy from tho still, waters of; wronged her and been forgiven.

If a male, it will  usually transmit these qualities to  its offspring. As soon as. a calf is  dropped, .it*'is "removed .-from. it's, dam  to a clean b'ed. of straw. I prefer  that it shall .not know a mother.  Unless the cow'' is suffering from an  excessiyely.., full'.: udder, I wait an  hour or two beforo milking,- or until  the calf has begun, to exercise���������' and'  get an appetite. I consider it necessary that it be fed tho mother's  first milk. A 5'oung calf should  never bo fod milk from a cow long  in lactation unless somo mild laxative is added, and, if possible,  should have the milk from its dnm  until old and strong enough to  thrive on skim-milk. , ' I  The amount of milk fed dopeds on  the size of the calf, varying from  two .-.or three quarts niorning and  night. Tho pails from which calves  aro fed should be kept clean. If the'  milk becomes chilled, place it in  warm wator until it reaches nearly  blood heat, never giving the calf  all it will take, but removing the  pail while it. still -wants moro. If a  calf does not begin to nibble nt haj  when it is throe or four days old,  a fow bright spears should be placed in its mouth -  A'l' FEEDING .TIMH  In this way it soon learns to expect-  hay as woll as milk T have had  calves eating hav legularly at a  week, old, and '*:. at two weeks old  would look for their noonday feeding oT-biain. When'a ralf 'begins 'to  eat hay and giam well, skimmilk is  substituted foi a pait of the wholo  milk, incieasing the amount giadual-  ly,. until��������� tho iatii\n is all skimmilk.  If the" nil Ik has bocomo Vool ln^se1!)-  aratmg, it should be waimed" Jto  about 10 - degrees. There can be no  set rule.as to the amount to bc allowed, a.s some calves take nearly  twice as much as others with, no  bad effects. The feeder must watch  his animals, and if too great a looseness of the bowels is observed, give  less, first making sure that scouring .is not.'caused by' sour pails,*  cold milk or wet, unclean quarters.  As soon as the milk pail is taken  away, some clean, fine hay is placed  before them, and they are taught to  cat, it. instead of sucking 'oil some  convenient object. Aftnr^.thOy com-  men-e eating hay, a daily allowance  of grain, consisting of. vrheat, bran  and'middlings; is given at noon, beginning with le.ss: than a pint daily,  and 'increasing.the hay and grain  ration as the calf grows, seldom.permitting the skimmilk to exceed three  run on pasture, an occasional feeding of grass i.s given in summer. In  winter, turnips aro sliced daily and  fed to lhem. A littlo snlt is added  to tho grain ration every other day,  or oftener if needed. Fed in this  way, with no corn meal in its rations, the calf that lays, on too much  flesh is liable to.turn out a light  milker, and will probably havo to  go to tho block.-  THE CALF'S..

During tho last three or four years  I have had but littlo trouble with  scours. Sometimes in changing to  skimmilk a calf will scour. Tho remedy is a very small feeding of  whole milk for a day or two, or until the calf begins to grow again,  when the chango: of skimmilk should  be gradual. .'Plenty of hay, grain  and water tends to develop the appearance, liked in n dairy cow.

It has'.recently been claimed that  cases of infection that could be accounted for in no other way have  been explained by ,the fingers as a  vehicle. In handling money, espe-  pf' cially of paper, dooi'rknobs, ��������� banisters, window straps, nhd^a hundred  and one things that every one must  frequently' touch there arc chances  innumerable of picking up germs of  typhoid, scarlatina, diplhoria, small  pox, etc. Yet sane persons actually  put such things in their mouths, if  not too large. ' Before eating or  ...touching that .which is eaten tho  "hands should be immediately and  scrupulously washed. We hear much  about general cleanliness as "next  to godliness."- It may be added  that here in particular it is also  ahead of health and safety. The  .lows mado no mistake in that "except they washed they ate not." It  is a sanitary ordinance ns well as  an ordinance of decency.  HOOKED A  BIRD.  Scotch Fisherman  Has   a Strange  Experience.  An     old    Aberdeenshire " fisherman  who fishes daily in  Cruden Bay   has  had an exciting fight with a great  northern river diver, a somewhat  rare bird  which     can  dive  a    great  depth for any fish it mny fancy.  The man was plying his rod about  o mile from tho shore, when suddenly ho felt a series of unusually powerful tugs at his line. He began  pulling in the catch, and had hauled  it nearly aboard, despite a resistance  which lashed tho water into a fury,  when the diver suddenly darted from  the so-'- into his face with a . force  that almost hurled him overboard.  Before ho could recover.himself, the  bird swooped down again, and then  whirled round him. In one of its  mad dashes it split open., the back of  his hand; inanother, it^ struck hiin  "above the' eye with its beak, "inflicting a wound two inches long and  laying tho bono bare.  .Using one of the boat stretchers as  a weapon, th'c fisherman was able,  with a lucky Mow, to break tho  wing of his infuriated assailant, and  then kill it. He rowed ashoro, and  bis wounds were stitched by a doctor. ���������       .      . .  Tho diver was found to measure  threo foet across tho wings and when  Mic bird was cut open a small hook-  Sd whiting was discovered. The  bird l*ad no doubt soon tho fish  wriggling on tho line, ond diving  twenty feet had swallowed it and  been also hooked.  work.   For    years Mr.  Etsell  was a,things, rendered him so popular th'at  ho was  acclaimed  Emperor.  Coming to Inter times, th'o following anecdote alVords an instanco of  wonderful powers of memory. 0 An  Englishman wont to Frederick tho  Groat of Prussia for the express purposo of giving him an exhibition of  his powers of recollection. Frederick  sont for Voltaire, who was then residing at tho Prussian court. At the  King's roqucst Voltaire read a long  poem which he had just composed.  Tho Englishman wns present and was  in such a position that he could hear  every word of the poem, though ho  was concealed from Voltaire's notice.  After the reading of the poem, Fred-  crick observed to the author tliat the  production could not bo an original  one, as there-was a foreign gentleman present" who could recite overy  word* of it: Voltaire listened in  amazement to tlie stranger as he repeated,  WORD FOR WORO.  th'e poem which he had been at so  much pains in composing, and, giving way ta n momentary outbreak of  passion, he,tore the manuscript in  pieces. He was then informed how  the Englishman had became acuuaint-  ed with his poem, and, his anger  being appeased, the was* willing to do  penance by copying down th'o work  front the second repition of tho  stranger, who was able to go tlirough  it as before.  There lived in tho sixteen century  at Padua, a law student who had  trained his memory to such a high  degree of perfection tliat he could recite 36,000 words after onco hearing  tliem  rend.  Jedediah' Buxton, an illiterate person of the eighteenth century, used  to put his memory to a curious use.  On ono ocenfrion he mentioned thc  qiiantity of aio ho had drunk free of  cost-since lie wasj-.twelve years old;"  ami the names of the gentlemen who  Iind given ,.i to - him. The who'le"  amounted* to 5,110 pints.      *-  As again showing tli-it retentive  gifts were not found in-the educated  alono, there is a notable instance of  "Blind Jamie," who lived some twenty years ago in Sterling. He was a  poor, uneducated man and totally  blind, yet ho could actually repeat,  after a few minutes' consideration,  any verso required from any part of  the Bible, even to the obscurest and  least  important.  An instance of a wager being won  by a feat, of memory was that of a  person wiio repeated an entire newspaper, advertisements as well, after  A SINGLE READING.  Another instance of a wager being  won by a feat of recollection was  that of Mr. Futter, who not many  years ago wns a well-known tithe  collector in Norfolk. He wagered  that ho could recollect every , word  of a sermon that was to be preached  and afterwards write it out verbatim. He was not seen lo take notes,  and at the' close of the service retired to a room and wrote out the  sermon. On comparison, with thc  manuscript, which the preacher had  been asked to bring for the purpo.se,  it wns found to vary in one instance  but in that Mr. Futter was proved to  be correct, for the clergyman had a  distinct recollection of substituting  one word for the other in his delivery.* .... ' ���������'*." ���������-           When reporting was forbidden in  the "Houses of parliament, and any  one seen to make notes was immedi-  ntely^ejected.^the-speeches.^neverthe--  less, were published in tlio public  press. It was discovered thnt ono  Woodfall used to bg present in the  gallery during th'e speeches, and. sitting witli liis head between his hands,  actually committed the speeches to  memory. They were ufterwards published.  Lord Macaulay had a marvellous  faculty for remembering what He  read. He once declared that if by  accident nil tho copies of Milton's  "Paradise Lost" were destroyed ho  would be able to write out the whole  of the long poem without a single error. In fact, ne once pcrfromod tho  marvellous feat of repeating the  whole poem, making only one omission.  Charles Dickens, nfter onco walking  down a street could remember tho  names of all the shopkeepers and  th'eir  businesses.
