"With these handsome additions to  the already huge list of trophies the  bonspiel this season should be moie  attractive than ever, and with two  curling clubs in Nelson with an aggregate membership of nearly one hundred, the successor this gi eat annual  even*, is already more than assured.

He declared that many-of the public  men of the enily days .could stand  comparison with the statesmen of the  old world by reason of their far-signt-  edness and appreciation of the potentialities of IUitrUi Columbia. In  referring to thc legislalme and its  woik, thc premier Said: "You will bo  glad 10 kuow thafcj-British Columbia,  in spite of the adverse criticisms of the  government .in soinp of our newspapers, stand? better 'tiefouo the world  today than she has done for many  years past. I do not want to claim all  the credit foi' the';improved statu of  affairs for. the.goveinmeiit and Us  supporters, because T le.ilize that thp  work of the opposition is not to be  overlooked.

We do not propose  to shirk our responsibilities, but to go  ahead in the, faith that this conutry  can stand a policy whicli will lie bold,  but productive of far-reaching icsults.  All we ask of (ho people is that thoy  will carefully .weigh these matteis in  their minds without partizan piejudice  and if they approve -oui plans, give us  their suppoi t."  ilr. Richard llnil also leplied. lie  said that although he sat on the oppo  site side of the house, the premier and  he were good friends. He realized tho  difficult task that had confionted Mr.  McBride on laKiug office, and congratulated him on the fact that his  success had not changed him in the  least. ' '  The Ontario   Elections.  Toronto, Dec. 12.���������The Ontario  Legi-laturo has been dissolved by the  Lieutenant ^Governor. , Nomination  day is set for January 10th. and election day for January 23th.      _    -  I    Fair ��������� Samples  Wanted for  Exhibition in Belgium.  At the World's Fair, SI. .Louis,  nearly every mining division in British  Columbia, with tho exception of thu  Fish River and Big Bend districts,  were repiesentod by an exceedingly  fine oie exhibit. . In .i letter to the  Iliiii.vr.o fiom MV. .J. A. Darragh,  who*'is now 'in, the east.doing good  Work for thc districts surrounding  Revelstoke, mention is made of this,  tact. The following is an extract  from his letter which speaks for  itself:  "I liavo just returned from St.  Louis where I spent last week, lt  was the sight of a life-time, and Canada was well to the front. , In fact  there was no nation, or single State of  the Union had such a variety of products, or such a large and*vaiied exhibit of ores. Our section, however, was  not represented and it is really too  bad. All the other mining camps of  B. C, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario,  and Ihe Yukon had unreal displays  w liich wei i' a surprise to many people,  The exhibit tit minerals will be,taken  to Belgium and I lrive arranged to  have it added to if possible befoio it is  lemnvcd fiom Oltawa.' I wish you  would u-ik thiough tho II'SKALD for  samples from lho Big Bond, Camborne  and elsewhere, nnd on my letiirn f  wiil soi t,-label and ship them."  The HiiiiA'LD will be pleased to receive samples from' the propei tics surrounding Revelstoke and will hand  them to -ilr. -.Darragh on his return  from tho east, who, will ship the same  Lo Ottawa to form part of theininer.il  exhibit which is to be seut.lo Belgium.  The miners and citizens generally of  ibis district aie lequested to act  promptly in this* matter and make  the exhibit as good a one as possible..  The thanks of nil interested in the  advancement of the district are certainly due Mr. Darragh for hi.s cneigy  iu arranging aud undertaking the  task of seeing that this district is not  overlooked in the future when any  opportunity is oil'ered for the legitimate advertising of its immense mineral  resources.

Hc was a  deputy inspector of factories, and a  man, therefore, of some standing and  position.  Ilr. Kent hai! been twice mnrriod.  lly his lirst wife he had four children  living, a boy swl tliree girls. One  of these latter was mimed Constnneu  Kinilit���������a strange sullen, wayward,  wilful girl of sixteen.  From tlie very first Constance had  conceived an intense, dislike t.o her  stepmother. Anil, besides, slie was  wont to play all sorts of inad  pranks.  For instance! One day in JSiiO,  when she was but twelve years of  ngo, she had cut her hair short, donned a suit of boy's clollics, and, taking h'er younger brother witli her,  had run away to ISalli.  There were otiier similar escapades  chronicled against hor, ond they were  remembered presently. Tt was also  recalled that h'er motlier, tlio first  Mrs. Kent, had died insane iii tin  asylum. ��������� *������������������  Tlie elder children, including, of  course; Constance,, liad separate bedrooms of their own. , Tlie two youngest, a baby in arms and little* Francis Savile Kent, aged four, slept in  tlie nursery with tlieir nurse, who  was an exceedingly devout and very  respectable person, named Elizabeth'  Goiigli, tliree-and-twcnty years of age.  About five in the morning this  young woman awoke. It was then  broad daylight, nnd she at once noticed th'at Savile's cot was empty.  Her first thought was to alarm  the household. But tlien���������so slie  averred later���������it occurred t-o lier tliat  Mrs. Kent, who was very fidgety  about lier children, miglit have entered the nursery during tlio night, perhaps hearing the hoy cry, or cough,  and liave carried him to lier own  room. So slie composed herself to  sleep again.  An hour and a half later slie rose  and dressed; then, liaving washed and  dressed th"e baby, proceeded to knock  at Ksr mistress'  door.  "Who is tliere?" responded the  voice of Mrs. Kent.     "Wliat is it?"  "Please,  ma'am,"  queried the girl,  "is Master'Savile with 5-011?"  "With me?    Certainly not."  "Well, ma'am," came tlie trembling  reply,' "ho is" not in the nursery."  Within a minute or two, as may  well be imagined, the wholeliouse  was in an uproar.^" Tlie place was  ���������thoroughly searched from, garret to  basement. But 110 trace of the missing child could be discovered.  Moreover it became quickly evident  that there had been foul piny. Tlie  drawing-room door, locked by Mr.  Kent overnight, was wide open. Tho  shutters of tlio same room had Veen���������  unclasped, and the window was a little way up. Yet no glass was broken,  no force had apparently been used,  and there were no footsteps traceable  in the garden outside.  Tlie  distracted  father  ordered     his  now  in     sendee  at  Islewortli,     was  again arrested.  Sho was brought before tlio magistrates in October, nearly thirty witnesses wero examined, but not a  single new fact was elicited.  One of tlie principal witnesses for  tlie prosecution was Constance Kent  herself. Amongst other things she  swore that she was passionately fond  of tlie dead child, and tliat on the  very evening of th'e murder slio had  been romping witli liim in the nursery.  Kvontiially Elizabeth was sot at  liberty, and tears streamed from lier  eyes ns some of the grout est lawyers  iu th'o land pressed forward to .shake  lier by the hand nnd u.'-sural her of  tlieir belief in  her entire innocence.  Late in the following month a last  effort was made to establish the  identity of tho unknown assassin.  Tlie Attorney-General moved in the  Court of Queen's Beiwli to quash thc  verdict of thu corner's jury, and for  the issue of a writ to enable a body  of special commissioners to .examine  witnesses and make fresh inquiry into  all tho circumstances surrounding tho  case.  There was much' argument for nnd  against. Hut in tho end the Chief  Justice, Sir Alexander Coekbtirn, refused tlie application. And t'hc  mystery was finally dismissed as ono  incapable of solution.  Nearly five years came and went,  and then, ono day towards tlie end  of April, 1805, came thc news that  Constanco Kent had confessed;  Slie was at tho time a guest at St.*  Mary's Home, Brighton, an* Anglican.  Convent, established- in connection  with St.  Paul's  Church'.  To tlio Uev. Jlr. Wagner, tho spiritual director of t'his establishment/  slio told her terrible story.  Jealousy of her little brother, and  a desire to bo revenged upon lior stepmother, had prompted hcr to the  deed.  She liad carefully planned it long  previously; liad purloined-and hidden  one of.lier father's razors; and had  also abstracted from the washing-  basket one of her nightdresses, foreseeing tliat sho would probably be  more or less covered witlh the child's  Uood. .. This gar-mant slie had afterwards burnt in her own bedroom,  putting tlio ashes in the kitclien  grate.  Tho actual murder was committed  shortly after midnight. She carried  lier baby brother from th'e nursery  ���������sleeping, and wrapped in a blanket  ���������through tlio drawing-room, and  rolmd to tlio shed at tlio back of the  house.  Arrived tliere, slie lit a candle slio  liad previously secreted, killed the,  child, and returned to tlio houso  quite unobserved. The woman's under garment whicli liad been found In  the scullery liad, slio added, no connection witli th'c .affair whatever.  The prisoner was tried for lier life  on lier own confession beforo Mr.  'Justice'-Willies at th'c Salisbury Assizes. The date was tlio 20th July,  1865,' five'years to the dny from her  first  arrest.  She was dressed plainly in sombre  black, and her face was'pnle, but determined. She pleaded guilty to  the indictment, and was sentenced to  death", lior judge bur&ting into tears  as lie pronounced th'o terrible words.  Constance, ii, was said, desired to  expiate hor crime with lior life, and  particularly requested that no efforts  luiig'ht be nuid������ to obtain a reprieve.  *^*g'g'g*���������*g*t5*G*t5*S������-g*������������������������������<*t<������<'6<(|'^ 1 addition to cold diced chicken, as it j    Note.���������TKo    following  article     has  ���������*>"���������'  A  Ai  It*  AI  (tt  i������  V  V  ���������I  About the  ....House  ^2 ! jollies  when  cold.

There is a pre.tty prevalent idea  that blotting-paper is a modern invention; that a hundred years ago  it was unknown, while <>and being  used   in  its stead  Blrtting-paper, as a matter of  fact, was a recognised convenience  a.s far back as JflTG. fn that year  there was issued a book called  "Towrsend's Preparative to J'Jead-  ing," and this volume contains, on  page S,  the following paragraph :  "Let tho dusting or sanding In  books be avoided, rather using fine  brown paper to prevent blotting, if  time of the ink's drying cannot be  allowed, for sand takes away I.he  good color of the ink, and, getting  info thc backs of tho books, makes  them break their binding."  The snnd that was used for blotting in the past was very clean and  white silver sand. It wns kept in a  cruet wilh a perforated lid, like a  suit-cruet, and thonco it was sifted  over the wot writing. An odd thing  nbout it was that, tho ink never  seemed to stain it. Tt could ho  used over and over again, and it remained to tho end a.s whito us  snow.  It is a matter of daily History testified to by literally millions of peoplo, that Whiskey, Tobacco and Coffeo aro smiling, promising, beguiling  friends on the start, bu.t always false  as boll itself in thc end. Oiico thoy  get firm hold enough' to show their  strength", thoy insist upon gorvcrning  and drive tho victim steadily -towards  ill health in some'form; if permitted  to continue to rule, thoy will.; not  let up until physical and mental ruin  sets in. .     .. o  A.;man under that spell (and "under the spell" is correct), of any one  of these drugs*, frequently assures  himself and his friends, "Why I can  leave off/any timo I want to. I did  quit for a week just to show I  could." It is a sure,' mark of tho  slave when one gets to tlint stage.  Ho .wiggled through a week fighting  every day to break the spell, was  finally whipped, and���������; began his slavery all over 'again,-  The slave (Coffee slave as well as  Tobacco and Whiskey) daily reviews  his condition, sees perfectly plain" tlio  steady encroachments of disease, liow  the 'nerves get weaker, day by day  and demand the drug t'hat seems to  smilo and offer relief for a few minutes and thon leave th'o diseased  condition plainer to view than ever  and growing worse. Many times tho  Coffee slave realizes that ho is  betweon ' two fires. He feels  bad if lie leaves off, and a  little worse if ho drinks and allows tlio effect to .wear olT.  So it goes on from day to day.  Every night th'e struggling victim  promises himself that ho will break  the habit and next day whon Iio feels  a little bad (as ho is quite sure to)  breaks, not the habit/but his own  resolution. It is nearly always a  tough fight, with disaster ahead sure  if the Habit wins.  Thoro have boon hundreds of thousands of: people driven to their  graves through' disease brought on  by coffeo drinking alone, and it" ia  quite certain tliat more Human misery is caused by coffee and tobacco  than by whiskey, for tlio two first  arc'.'more widely used, aiid more hidden and insidious in the effect on  nerves, heart and other vital organs,  and are thus unsuspected .until much'  of th'o'dangerous work is.do-ne.  - Nwo,--Bcader, wh'at is your opinion  as to the real use tlie Creator has  for these things?* Take a look at  tho question from this point of view.  There is .a law of Nature and' of  Nature's Go'd tliat things! 'slowly  evolvc^from^-lower^idanes-to-higlier,  a sturdy, steady and dignified advance toward more perfect things in  botK thc Physical and Spiritual  world. Tlio ponderous tread of evolutionary development is fixed by  the Infinite und will not bc quickened out of natural law by nny of  man's methods.  Therefore wo see many ilhistrntions  showing how nature checks too'rapid  advance. Illinois raises phenomenal  crojis of corn for two or three years.  If sho continued to do so every year  her farmers would advance in wealth'  far beyond those of othor sections or  countries. >So Nature interposes a  bar every three or four years and  brings on a "bad year."  Here we seo the leveling influence  at  work.  A man is prosperous In his business  for a number of years and grows  rich. Then Nature sets the "leveling  influence!" at work on him. Some  of his investments lose, he becomes  luxurious and luzy. Perhaps it is  whiskey, tobacco, coffee, women,  ga.rribl.hg, or some otiier' form. Tlio  Intent and purpose is to level him.  Keep li/m from evolving too far  ahead  of the imisws.  A nation becomes prosperous'' and  great like ancient Homo. If no leveling influence! sot in she would dominate the world perhaps for all timo.  Hut Dame Nature sets her army of  "levelers" at work. Luxury, overeating and drinking, licentiousness,  waste and extravagance indulgences  of all kinds, then comes tho wreck.  Sure.  Suro,  Sure.  Tho law of tho unit is the law of  thc mass. Man goes through tho  same process. Weakness (in childhood), gradual growth of strength,  energy, " thfift, probity, prosperity,  wealth, comfort, ease, relaxation,  sclf-indulgejce. luxury,     idleness,  waste,  dobiwjichery.   disease,   and    the  wreck follal*'*-).      The  "levelers"     are  every    successful     man   and - woman  and they bag tho majority.  Only now and thon can a man  stand out against theso "levelers"  and hold his fortune, fame and  health to tho ond.  So tho Creator has uso for Whiskey, Tobacco and Coffee to level  down tho successful ones and those  who show signs of being successful,  and keep thcm back in the race, so  that tho great "field" (tho' masses)  may not be left too far behind.  Aud yot wo must admit that samo  all w'.w Creator has placed it in tho  powor of man to stand upright,  clothed iu tho armor of a clean out  steady mind and suy unto himself.  "I decline to exchange my birthright  for u mess of potngo."  "I will not deaden my senses,  weaken my grip on affairs and keep  myself cheap, common and behind in  fortuno and fume by drugging with  whiskey, tobacco or coffeo, lifo is  too short. It is hard enough to win  tho good things, without any sort of  handicap, so a man is certainly a  "fool trader" when he trades  strength, health, money, and the  good things that como with power,  for thu half-asleep condition of tho  "druggor" with tho certainty of sickness and disease ahead."  It is a matter each individual  must decide for himsolf. Ho can be  a loader and semi-god if ho will, or  he can go along through lifo a drugged clown, a cheap "hewer of wood  or carrier of water."  Certain it is that while the Oreat  Father-of us all does not -seem to  "mind"' if some of his children, are  foolish and stupid, ho', seems; to select  others (perhaps those lie intends for  some special work) and allows thorn  to be threshed and.castigated most  fearfully by. these "lovelers."  If a man tries flirting with thoso  levelers awhile, and gets a few slaps  as a hint, hc had bettor take tho  hint or a good solid blow will follow.  Wher- a man trios to live upright,  clean.; thrifty, sober, and undruggod,  manifesting as near us he knows  what tho Creator intends he should,  happiness, health and peace seem to  come to him.

A different story mignt easily have  bcon told of i another .couple wiio went  honeymooning skyward a few years  ago* from Denver. The balloon shot  up like a rockot to the height of 8,-  000 feet, when to the horror of thousands of spectators, it encountered  a terrific storm and burst. For a  mile it fell earthward with alarming;  Velocity, until fortunately it formed  itself into a 'paruchutc; ils speed was  checked and, descending more an'd  more fjlowly, it ultimately fclLinto a  cornfield, where the ncwly-marriod  couple wore rescued, unconscious,  from the wrecked balloon.  One August duy in 1879 Captain  H. E. Colville, of the Grenadier  Guards, had a very much happier  bridal, excursion in a balloon. Tho  captain, who was no novice as an  aeronaut, had arranged for a balloon  ascent from the Crystal Palace  grounds, London, and none but hiin;. -  self and another know who his companion was to bc. On the morning  of tho ascent ho was married and  drove straight from the church to the  Palace. A strong wind wns blowing,  and great efforts were' made to induce him either to: Postpone the'trip,  or to tako an aeronaut with him.  Tho gullant captain would not listen,  to such suggestions, not would his  bride, ai.'I so the courageous pair entered the car and had a most delightful if exciting journey.

During sleep the respiration is  shallow, and the expansion of tho  ���������lungs is insufficient for active movement. It is "necessary, therefore, to  fully expand tho lungs on waking before or as soon as active', movements  commence. This is effected by. a  yawn, which is deep.' respiration assisted by the;wido opening of tho  mouth. TiTe depth of the inspiration is of ton assisted ^by raising the  arms above tho head and by throwing forward .the chest, and thus  yawning and stretching aro only  parts of 0110 inspiratory effort.  Stretching also aids the return of  thc blood to tho muscles. During  sleep tho circulation is feebler, and  the skin seems to bo supplied with  blood at the expense of the muscles,  and on -waking the limbs arc stretched to insure their being in working order, and to restore to them  their normal waking blood supply.  Towards night it is not v.ucommon  for a similar reduction ij������ tlie depth  of tho respiration, and slowing of  the cumulation, to take place, and  this is corrected by a similar yawning and stretching as on waking.

Cadaverous    People Do  Not Monopolize   All   the Brains.  "Thick in tho bond and tec-ad in  tho shoulders" is an oft-quoted saying in the North of England, implying that strength and learning are  seldom found in doubie harness. Yot  tho oboso need not deplore their  avoirdupois, for corpulent geniuses  nre by no menus raro, especially in  tho annals of literature.  Writing in tho "Humanitarian"  some years ago, Dr. Kiormun took  up arms against thoso who woro  wont to declare that obesity was    a  THE NEW CAPES.  It is very difficult to toll some of  the new capos from wrups. They  .are closo fitting about the shoulders  and waistline, being curved to the  figuro by myriad rows of shirring.  Then protruding from the shoulders  thoro are capelets of lace, handsome  silk or other elegant trimming to  simulate the flowing sleeve effect.  Thoso now models are among the season's luxuries for not onlj- arc thc  materials used in thoir development  and decoration expensive, but so  much is required that it places the  wraps beyond the reach of the average women. Resourceful women,  however,      with an        irrepressi  ble genius for imitation, find  it reasonably easy to duplicate the  most intricate an'd expensive models  in the many cheaper and effective  cloths and trimmings which can be  had after the first-season prices have  been halved or evon more greatly reduced.  Paris shops arc overrun with novelties, and it tukes a most discriminating buyer to select those which  will outlast the present craze.

CURIOUS COUHTY MINGS  MANY  PROVERBS  AND MAXIMS IN ENGLAND.  Rivalry Between Towns and Counties Makes Some Queer  Sayings.  There aro many sayings peculiar to  the British Isles which o.vo thoir  origin to some special trait of the  inhabitants in a certain district, or  to something for which that district  may bo famous���������either in a good or  indifferent sense.

Thero is a saying current in Cambridgeshire tliat "Tho bailiff of Bedford i.s coming." It Is appllcablo to  tho River Ouso, which runs through  Bedford, because when it is swollen  with rain und overflows its banks it  generally causes an inundation,  bringing down suddenly abundance of  water. By this saying, persons uro  warned to drive off their cattlo, lost  thoy should bo impounded by tho  "bailiff of Bedford," or, in other  words, drowned.  We are all familiar with tlio phrase  "Grinning liko n Cheshire cat.-'" The  crest of a Cheshire family was a lion  rampant, and it is alleged t'hat a  travelling painter, wiio endeavored to  paint a representative -of that particular beast of prey upon tho village  inn signboard, made such a peculiar  drawing of it that tho monarch of  thc jungle bore a greater resemblance  to a grinning cat, and was often mistaken  for  such. ,  Essex lins a saying which describes  a person with vcry littlo fig'hting  powor as being "As valiant as an  Essex lion." Tlie lion referred to  is  THE INNOCENT  CALF.  Durham   rejoices  in  many  proverbs  and  maxims,   several  ot  whicli relate  to  Barnard     Castle.

This is turned up sharply at tho back, and usually trimmed  with a bunch of cowue's feathers  which droop over the hair. The  crown is rather hollow, so that it  can be .filled in with a largo bow of  shaded satin ribbon and fastened  with a handsome buckle.  Mauve hats in purple, blue and old  roso made entirely of feathers or  leaves are; very smart. One of old  rose is particularly stunning. Tho  brim" rolled up on tho left sido' very  cavalierly and on this side and under the brim the feathers were ruffled ami shaded to whito.   This���������is-worn-with a-gown-of -rose-  voile trimmed with Bruges laco and  embroidered net. There is a great  deal of tho openwork, but when underlined with chiffon a groat deal  of the whito effect of the laco is  lost.  A  COLOR  COMBINATION.  An odd combination���������in sound only, for the effect is beautiful, is palo  bluo and crimson. This is used ou  many of "lho smartest hats, especially those made of moire and panne velvet. It is very youthful and protty  for street, as woll ns drossy, wear.  A handsome rnodcl is shown with a  round crown, the short, brim being  composed of ruffles of Valenciennes  lace. A stiff littlo scarf of crini-  6*011 velvet encircles the crown, and  is tied in a fiat bow in front. A  gown of black* cloth,: relieved by  touches of pale blue and rod ..embroidery, is worn with the hat, or  vice  versa.  After all,-the . high crowned . hat  is not setting' the" world on fire, to  use a phrase of the'--boulevards. It  is affected by women who like coquettish effects and have the money  to indulge in all sorts of whims, but  the average woman who gets only  one or two now hats in a season is  selecting designs less decided. The  disadvantage of choosing any stylo  that is exaggerated or too out of  thc ordinary is that people so soon  get accustomed to it, and it becomes a sartorial landmark, ns it  Were, which, of course, every woman  abhors.  string of facts was put forward, llio  significance of which could not bo  minimized by ull tho arguments of  leaner brethren.  Tho world and an overcoat, il is  said, could hardly contain tho glory  of Victor Hugo's frame. And the  embonpoint of the author of "Les  Misorables" was most richly deserved, for his plato was a conglomeration of veal cutlets, Lima beans and  oil, roast beef and tomato sauce,  omelettes, milk and vinegar, mustard  and cheese, which he swallowed rapidly und in immense quantities, washing down the whole with huge  draughts of coffee.

In  the world of politics  big men,  in thc literal sense,  have played  big  parts.

Lord  Rosebery is stouter  than  the majority of    liis    colleagues.

One might bo "more accurate  in terming it an instrument of torture rather than  of music.

It is recognized ns a woman's privilege to change hor mind, and perhaps  tlio. most remarkable instance on record comes from a village in County  Dorry, Ireland, whero a girl lias gone  through the marriage ceremony and  then refused to sign th'o register or  to consider herself bound in any way  to  tho  disconsolate  bridegroom.  The couple became engaged somo  timo ago, and apparently wore perfectly Happy. When, however, tho  engagement was announced and preparations were made for tlie wedding  tlio young woman began to show  signs of fickleness. Difficulties woro  placed in the way of fixing a day,  nnd tlio utmost endeavors of parents  and friends liad to bc added to tlio  persuasions of her lover to induce-  her to consent to be married. But  eventually tlio marriage morning arrived, and the wedding party, with a  largo number of friends, went to the  church".  Tho ceremony- proceeded without  hitch until the bride was asked in tho  usual form if she would take "this  man" for lier husband. Tlio clergyman's question elicited no response.  Instead, Oho woman fidgeted and  looked confused, whilo a buzz of excitement ran through the congregation.  SEPARATED IN THE CHURCH.  In the Irish Presbyterian Church  thero is no set form of reply to t'his  question. Any method of signifying  assent is accepted, and tlie minister,  who thought that the bride was merely nervous, repeated his question  gently. This timo there was an inclination of tho Head, which ho took  for an affirmative. Others present,  howevor, subsequently declared t'hnt  it *.yas immediately followed by .a  negative sliako. \  Be tliis as it'may; the clergyman saw  only the affirmative nod and' tho ceremony proceeded. The ring was placed  upon ' the bride's finger, and everything proceeded without unUsunl incident, to the end.  But.-when the register had~to /be  signed .tlie bride absolutely refused.  She declared that slie. was not married, that she liad never promised to  tako the man for lier husband, and  th'at'slio-.could not and would not  sign tlie register. Husband, relatives  and; clergymen failed to_ induce her  tp relent, and eventually/ after some  hours of fruitless attempts.at persuasion, th'e party broke up, tho  bride's section going in ono direction  and the groom and his friends in another.

In the. eyes  of tlio Church' tho marriage ceremony  liad been completed and t'he couple  were man und -wife. Legally, however, tlie contract was incomplete. Ho  could not decide whether the woman  was maid or wife, and accordingly  sought, (.he aid of the Registrar-General  to decide'the point.  lie'   suggested     that    the marriage  certificate  might  bc  mado  out    with  the'endorsement,  "Mrs.   refuses  to sign   tho   register."

Though tho Jirnkeo is one of the  richest mines on which thi.s method  of gold extraction is in uso, it is employed in many othor districts in  Australia, and little more than a  year ago orders woro placed in tho  States for two fire engines specially  adapted to this purpose for use in  the Klondyke. Once installed whero  there is an adequate supply of water  nothing can excel the method for  speed nnd economy ' combined, the  average cost per" cubic yard treated  being about six cents, so that aU' tho  gold : recovered above that value  is clear profit, and as nearly 500,000  cubic yards can bo handled in the  course of a year' low grade dirt can-  be made to yield a rich return on  the outlay. .     /-  Alexandria, in Egypt, is .one of  the best places to go to see the hose-  propollod boats at their highest development, for there they are in uso  as fire-boats, and tho same ongino  and hose that propel tho boat'to the  scene cf tho blaze throw tho streams  of .water with which to extinguish it.  Alexandria is intersected by shallow  canals, which are' so numerous in  somo quarters as to turn the city into a second Venice. Thc water in  them is too" shallow, however, to  permit of tho" use of boats driven by  propellers or paddle wheels, since  tho craft have to be of sucli light  draft that no such appliances can  get sufficient grip on the wator. This  fact gives the fire hose its opportunity. - Streams of water under a pressure of 200 lbs. to the square inch  aro directed over the stern of tho  boats and drive thcm on in exactly  tho samo way that a punt is pushed  along by a polo.

Those changes in the beam of light  affect tho selenium in tho receiver  and so tlio message finds its way-  through spaco.  It is to Boll tliat tho- credit of tlio  discovery is due. In 1880 ho devised  tho "photophone," nnd subsequent  experimenters all acknowledge thoir  indebtedness to him. The German  Government granted a substantial  sum of money lo a young' Berlin "scientist- Ernst Ruhmer, who had already carried" "out .successfully experiments, proving his .ability, under  varying atmospheric conditions, to  transmit articulate sound across wa-.  tor over distances ranging from a'  mile to nine and a third miles, the  messages being satisfactorily received  and understood  Worthless as a Safeguard Against  Attacks of the Electric  Fluid.  During a remarkable storm in New  York a short time ago lightning  struck no fewer than ihirty-five different buildings in as many minutes,  tlio majority of whicli wero furnished with lightning-rods, says a well-  known builder. Tho electric fluid  apparently scorned tlio conductor,  and instead of running down it attacked the Hag-staffs, splitting the  polos into a thou.snnd fragments and  scattering them in all directions.  Electricians have told mo that whilo  tlie forked rod undoubtedly attracts  tlio lightning the electricity, in nino  cases out of ton, does not run down  tho wire and into th'o ground, as is  generally supposed, but strikes somo  other part ol" the building near tho  rod.  Some ot the biggest sky-scrapers* in  tho world are now built without  lightning-rods and, ns a ���������consequence,  nro seldom struck. Jn order to prove  to you liow the valuo of tho lightning-conductor lias waned I may toll  you that, while ten or fifteen years  ago every insurance company insisted  that each" building for whicli they issued a policy should bo furnished  with a lightning-rod, to-day t they  make  NO  SUCH STIPULATION.  A couple of years ago a valuable  testimony to tho uselessness and even  danger of tho lightning-rod was afforded by a case which came under  my personal knowledge. A big building was being erected in one of tlio  groat cities, and ns it noared-. completion tlio subject of thc lightning-  rod came up for discussion. Tho  contractors asserted that no rod was  necessary; ia fact, _they said the  building would be safer without it.  The firm for wltrom the sky-scraper  was being 'built, however, insisted  tliat the usual supposed safeguard  against the structure being struck  should bo included. Of course, tlie  contractors made no objection, and  as soon as the work was finished tho  lightning-rod  was  run up.  Tlie very next week a terrific thunderstorm swept over tlie city, and the  first building to be struck was the  newly-completed sky-scraper. Almost  the whole of the roof was torn off,  while tlie    flag-staff,     on which     tho  Earlier experimenters liad succeeded    _     in  transmitting  sound  for  tho brief-1 lightning-conductor   was   erected,   re-  ccs.

An old country sexlon, in showing  visitors round the churchyard, used  to stoi) at a certain tombslono and  say : "This 'ero is the tomb of Tum-  mas  'Ooper nn' 'is eleven woives."  Ono day a lady remarked, "ISlevon?  Dear me, that's rather a lot, isn't  it?"  Th'e old man looked at her gravoly,  and replied, "Woll, mum, yor seo, it  Was an' 'obby of 'is'n."  WASHING   SHEEP.  In the shearing seuson in England  it is no uncommon thing to seo a  fire engine in full blast in the fields,  with an innocent-looking flock of  sheep as the only visible signs of a  conflagration. It has been found  that a, small engine throwing upwards of 100 gallons of sheopwusli ia  a minuto provides a far moro expeditious und economical means of cleansing tho fleeces thnn the old-fashioned  dip, though whero many thousand  head have to be handled ns ou the  rungos in "thp' Western Slates, tho  dip remains' the simplest '''method.  Whon used on sheep of course the  pressure of tho the water is considerably moderated, and in place of tho  ordinary nozzle, with its single  Stream, a rose tip is substituted that  throws a fine spray in. every direction.  ....Identical, in principle is the employment* :o.f .nro engines in the hop fields  of Kent and the tea. 'gardens iu Ceylon and .India. : All thoso growths  have much to feni" from insects and  blight, and in a bad year the plants  often have to be sprayed almost incessantly in order to save the crop.  With a firo ongino 10 "or 12 jots can  bo oporntod nt once, each ono of  whicli can do the work of six men iu  a day.  Another novel use of -the fire engine often can be seen nearer homo  at any seaside resort where piers or  othor buildings arc being constructed  on tho beach. Instend of digging  holes for the piles which are to form  the foundations a strong jot of water is turned into tho sand at the  foot of an upright polo. Tho forco  of the water so loosens the sand that  the piles sink to thc desired depth,  tho sand settling securely around  thorn again as soon as tho stream ofI  wator ia turned off.

Ho also found that the distance ovor  whicli tlie message could bc transmitted depended largely on thc size of  the mirror used.  A receiving station was erected on  tlio Kaiser Wilhclm Tower in Grun-  wald, and tests were made on a dull  nnd foggy evening between th'e transmitter on a small launch and th'o  station,, a distance of four nnd a  third milos. Though' tlio mirror was  small and the light imperfect; tlio  message was distinctly understood.  Witli a larger mirror mucli larger  distances W������rc successfully "bridged."  WONDERFUL SYSTEM.  The reader may wonder what nro  the advantages " of tliis system of  wireless telephony over tlio ordinary  system. There are three, nt any  rate. Messages can bc sent more  rapidly tlian nt prosont: replies to  messages received can bo sent instantaneously, nnd perfect secrecy is  assured. The disadvantage of thc  system is that the distance to wliich  messages can be transmitted is limited. Sanguine investigators assort,  however, that it will be effective for  a. distance of a hundred and fifty  miles.  Tlio installation of wireless telephones on-the ships of our navy  would, ono would think, bc of tho  greatest value, especially nt night.  Absolute secrecy would be insured,  and tliat, in . conjunction witli thc  rapidity with which messages can bo  sent-,-otight-^to-rendor-=lhem== especially^  useful.  The admiral could give his orders  quickly to the ships of his fleet and  without fear of their being road by  nny hostile or passing vessel.  And on land the cost of a wireless telephone i.s smnll -enough to warrant its introduction and popular uso  for short distances.  Undoubtedly this gift of science is  a valu.ablo one, nr.d beforo the world  i.s mucli older we mny soo flashing  across our cities and over the sea  shafts of light bearing our messages  nnd enquiries.  "���������      ������������������-f��������� -.  FINISH OF THE NECK.  -An'important factor in the making  of cither a wrap or jacket is the finish of the neck. This should not be  too high or too low, and yet, as paradoxical as it may seem, it might  bo either, for the status of the collar is not definitely settled. Somo  couturiercs considering the plea- of  women with delicate throats arc trying to revive high collar effects;  others, for just the opposite reason  are striving just as hard to maintain the low effects. The square  neck is protty and is finished with  a band cut in fanciful effect horo and  thero, which affords a charming opportunity for tho most delightful  masses of sfofl lace and chiffon ruffles as fillers-iu.  Furs are combined with handsome  laces moro tlian ever; they are also  trimmed with pendants of silk  braid. As if they woro not already-  expensive enough thc latest evening  caries and collars of fur arc lined with  countless frills of narrow old lace.  astounded at sucli a curioUs coincidence, but as they were fully covered  by insurance they suffered no great  loss. The insurance company, however, beforo renewing the policy, insisted on tlie lightning-conductor being removed, which, of course, was'  'done,  and  the building has.  NEVER BEEN STRUCK SINCE.  If a list were mado of all the buildings struck b.v lightning in any great  cily during a twelve-month", I am  convinced tliat at least 95 per cent,  would be found ..furnished witli.light-,  ning-rods. Tliere is no doubt about1  it tliat the long respect wliich" th'e  lightning-conductor lias enjoyed as a  kind of mechanical Ajax is drawing  to a closo. and soon everyone will bo  tearing them down and turning them  into laundry lines.  There is another fallacy, I think",  with regard to lightning, viz., that  it always strikes tlie highest point of  a building, nnd hence tlio custom of  placing tlio rod a few inches above  tho loftiest pinnacle. In many cases  you will find that this is by no  means tlie case. Last year, for instance, a certain church" was struck"  by lightning, but it was not the top  of th'e spiro which was shattered, but  th'o roof of tlio nave. The church  was furnished witli a lightning-rod  whicli ran up tlio spire and a foot or  so above the vane, but it was useless  as a safeguard. Another church' near  by which hnd a spire several feet  higher, but which was without a  lightning-rod,  escaped  all   injury.   ���������>   CONCERTS IN TICE CAVE'S.

THE TRAIL OF  THE SERPEA'T.  Alieady   sonie   self-styled     Liberal  ���������newspapers  manifesting nervous trepidation, conseipietit  upon  the  suspicious   reticence   of    Mr.     Hays,     in  connection   wiih   the construction  of  the Grand Trunk  Pacific.     11 will be  remembered   tbat   immediately prior  to the general election, Senator Tem-  t-pleman, Minister "without  portfolio,"  together   with   other   friends  of   the  Laurier    administration,   announced  that work  would begin  eastward and  -westward simultaneously, that survey  parties were in the field and contracts  -would soon be let.     So the   Kellys of  Vancouver  and   JRileys   of   Victoria,  together with   a select few, operating  upon the cupidity or  gullibility of the  electors   throughout   this    Province,  howled with well dissembled  enthusiasm, over   the   millions   that were to  fall into the caps of those who possessed sufficient patriotism and common  sense to actively support the Government  candidate.     To    be   sure,   the  Opposition, after the 3rd of November,  pointed out the advisability of atdeast  two constituencies electing men .who  ���������would  go   to  parliament pledged to  become faithful  watch-dogs, so far as  devoting themselves unremittingly to  the work   of   inducing   the House of  Commons to force the hands   of  any  Government attempting   to   strangle  ante-election pledges.   The Territoiies  did this, so with Manitoba; but "solid  British .Columbia'-'   is now taken as a  public   proclamation   that the  people  will   approve   of   the.  Laurier policy,  ���������whether inimical   to this   Province or  otherwise.     Is another conspiracy in  .course   of   incubation ?     Are the intriguers , bent upon further degrading  public life, by a shameless repudiation  of promises made to  the electors of  British Columbia?    Is the 'promise of  "readjustment of terms and subsidies"  to be repudiated?   If so, every honest  man, be he Liberal  or Conservative,  ���������will know   what to think and how to  act, under the circumstances.    Senator  Teir,pieman   and his coterie, ate  anxious   to   get   rid   of   the McBride  Government, and it certainly looks as  though a dastardly effort will be put  forth to hamper that administration,  with the design  of handing the Province   over   to   the   Liberals and tbe  Grand ' Trunk- Pacific.      Already the  Victoria Times is preparing the way.  by warning Mr.  McBride and his colleagues, against  granting  any favors  or making  any  concessions whatever  to the new Transcontinental railway.  Imagine   the  death-dealing treachery  of sueh an appeal.     The Grand Trunk  Pacific,  after  entering  iuto   one contract in  1003, forced Sir. Wilfrid Lau-  --=riei'^aud--thej=Hoiij-W.^S.=Eie!ding-toa  re-open   negotiations   and   to  nullify  whatever safeguards remained for the  protection   of   taxpayers.     Sow, it is  stated, that  the  western or coast section of  the Grand Trunk  Pacific, n-iiy  not be proceeded wilh for two or three  years, and Senator Temple-man's newspaper becomes  a  menace to tbe great  railway so fai as the west is concerned,  while   that   delectable statesman will  vote in   favor  of   any iniquity or any  advantage  connected with the   work,  when   he   is piesent   in   l.is   place  in  Parliament.    Of course, Senator Tern*  pieman may be appointed Lieutenant-  Governor, thus escaping responsibility  for pledges m.ide to tbe people of this  Province.     Then   the road  would be  clear: Senator Teinpleman is not a Sir  Henri Joly, he is an eastern Grit without western chivalry, so far as political  creed is concerned.   We do not say be  ���������would   wilfully outrage the statutory  law or violate constitutional privilege-  but we so feel, like Mark Twain (if lie  is   responsible   for   the   saying)   that  should the' Conservatives be forced to  permit   hiin   to  guard their basket of  ���������eggs, they   would be acting discreetly  when keeping bo-.li eyes on the basket  ���������as well as the eggs.    More than this,  we   are   convinced   that,   consequent  upon  tlie  vote-making pledge,   made  by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, with reference  40 a   "readjustment of   terms," every  impediment will lit? placed in the way  and every effort: made, to use this as a  weapon against the Provincial t.'ov-  erninent. This declaration may appear to some extent, unjust; but  precedents are plentiful to establish  the length Canada's rulers will go, to  accomplish their ends. All we ask is,  that those who voted for (he Government, honestly voted, having confidence in Senatoi'Ti'iiipIeniau's pledges,  will watch carefully how they are  redeemed. !!' there be a plot tn defeat  llu* Mclit'idi!

Tliey mingled  with the misty visions that kept rising aiid fusing themselves one with  another in a soft, vague phantasmagoria, veiling the external world  blocking the avenues of sense, confounding time and place, the present  and the past, here and elsewhere, in  the perpetually shifting cloudland  thoy wove round about her consciousness in many-colored iris-  woof.  She seemed to bo sitting, not nt  the end of Westminster Uridge. but  at thc corner of tho bridge by tho  mill at home; sho saw, not Westminster Palace, but tho homely, hoary  front of Stillbrooke Mill, with its  carvei dato above the half-door,  over which her father leant, looking  out as ever with kind eyes on tho  world. The pigeons preened themselves in tho sunshine, the- swans  glided majestically above the mirrored reflections they were contemplating with enamored glances. The  far-off hum and near roar of London traffic was changed to the soothing rush of the stream and soft  throb of tho mill, tho baffled waves  were spurned from tho turning wheel  and the whito feet of angels passed  ���������up the moving stair, shining wings  floated upward and mingled with  bright pinions such as to her fancy  were always hovering about the dim  spaces of tho Abbey. Now the organ-music rolled its mellow thunder  and beautiful awful faces full of  wonder and worship clustered round  her i:i gracious throngs. Tlio faces  of father and mother mingled with  them, and Philip's and Claude's.  Ther. came that cry of "Jessie," so  thrilling with passion ancl tenderness, sorrow and agony, pity and  wonder, from a far, far distance,  piercing the web of vision, and revealing the actual hard blank world  once more. Tho policeman's stern.  "Mow. on," had only reached some  outer gate of sensation, had influenced her body without changing the  poise of her thoughts, but this "Jessie" touched the vital core of her  heart.  "Claude," she replied in a faint  and shadowy voice, as the reality of  his face, moved as she had never  ���������'���������known, it grw upon her and chased the visionary shadows farther  and farther from her brain. "Claudo  here?"  The time for shrinking from him  was gone by, it was not a pleasant  and peaceful thing to be near *.. hiru;'  she ha,i fought her battle to the  deadly end and feared nothing: she  had passed beyond and above temptation, in the fierce furnace of suffering*, the fire of which was still  upon her.  "Oh' Jessie," he cried, "like this!  ���������I drove you to this." Sho was instinctively moving on, and Claude  with her, a singular pair in. the  broad, bright glare of the July sun,  in tiie thick of the daily traffic.  Worn and weather-stained as hor  clothing* was. and in spite of her utter exhaustion, she had still au air  of grace and refinement; her sharpened, wan, and hollow face was alight  with a supernatural beauty, her large  purple-ringed eyes shone with an intense and spiritual brilliance. To  Claude she seemed an accusing* angel,  embodied in the sweet semblance of  the woman he loved, whose youth:  and beauty had kindled a deathless  fire in his heart and wasted  flame. '  The sight of the passing crowds recalled him to a full sense of the situation, and an empty cab coming in  sight, he hailed it. placed Jossio in  it and got in himself. "When did  you eat last?" he asked when the  cab moved on.  ings, and when Jessie spoke thus, bo  noted the waxen wanness of her face  with an awful, awful fear. Was it  too late'.* Ue could not. think for  tho    moment     what to do;  with    n  ishmont Claude had procured, and  listening t.o tho mellow chanting* of  the evensong, softened by distance  and   inexpressibly soothing.  AII the ugony was ended now, and  death coming in gentle guise, like  the full, calm wave of sunset sea,  bearing her softly from tho shore into tho illimitable glory in tho track  of the sunken sun. She wus very  contrite, conscious of having mado  some vital mistake in this lonely  wandering through the wido world,  and yoi: she felt that she could not  have dono otherwise, lly tho in'finito  mercy of Cod she had passed scatheless through the perils of the great  and wicked city. Sho wns dimly  conscious of celestial presences, glowing faces crowned and haloed, mingling wilh tho music, but more keenly  conscious of Claude's faco iu tho  centre of all, attuned in its solemni-  tho    rising*  breaking up-  : more  She  had  been   walking   throe  days j (>veSi  and three nights lo the grim, mono  tonous music of the policemen's  "MoVo on," and it seemed ridiculous  to be asked if she could walk a few  yards farther.  Yet she could not remember how  she got there whon sho found horself  sitting in a cornor by an open archway through which the air camo  freshly into tho cool cloisters. Sho  seemed to bo alono for awhile; then  Claudo was thero, again bending  over her, giving her restoratives.  Then things becamo clearer, reality  fastened itself more firmly upon hor,  she remembered all that had befallen  her since sho rait: away, from temptation.  She had sold one picture, only one.  Then sho found thc address of a  Koyal Academician and presented  ���������herself at his studio to ask advice.  From him sho learnt that she might  procure employment as a model,  that hor ' drawings showed marked  talent, but that sho could do nothing without years of study. She sat  to him.  Thon she wont as a model from  studio to studio for sonic weeks, until she found that thoro woro incidents in such a life that sho was  unfitted to cope with, undesirable  companions and associations, and  that here, too, her fatal beauts- exposed hcr to annoyances, alone as  she wns. Lucy Darker, her landlady's humpbacked daughter, put her  in the way of obtaining a little  needlework from time to time, else  sho had no means of earning broad.  By pawning her few possessions she-  kept alive, she scarcely knew how;  she would have given up her humble lodging but that the Barkers on-  treated her to slay, in their charity,  till another lodger came. Then she  foil into such straits that sho was  minded to write to Philip; but sho  know she must die before a letter  could reach India and be answered.  She might have written to her .'.'.other  guardians, but hcr knowledge .of  Cousin Jane's inflexible' condemnation of girls in false positions was  heightened by the sight of a lociil  paper' in which her disappearance  was commented upon in words that  made hoi- ears tingle. Mrs. Barker  had relations near Cleeve who '"sometimes-sent her a . local paper, and  she hat! lent this to Jessie.-'-'-'After  this she was moro careful than ever  not to say whence she camo. An orphan from the country, leaving the  house of distant relations to fight  for herself in London, was by no  mean.5 an extraordinary phenomenon  ���������to the Barkers. But when at last  the room was lot Jessie wandered  forth rather than prey upon their  hard-working poverty, her Inst penny  being gone. Thou followed a time  that she did not clearly remember,  of wandering in the streets, of resting  on seats  in  public  gardens    and  he saw a  conscious look in her hazed  'you must bo my wifo now, 1  not    lose sight   of   you    any  must  more."  "Oh, no,"' sho replied, "you gave  your word  to  your father!"  "That is all changed. Sho is married. I am free. I have fortune  now."  "Too late! But I nm glad, oh!., so  glad, to see you onco more. And  you will toll I'hilip."  "Philip is in London, looking for  you."  This, too, seemed quite natural,  and as pleasant as it was natural.  It was so refreshing to rest in tho  cool cloistor with hor head against,  one- of -the slender stone'pilasters, to  hoar no more of the dreaded "Move  on." A sort of victorious calm foil  upon her with a strango and infinitely peaceful uplifting of soul; her  struggles wore ended, her warfare  accomplished, thero was to be no |  moro sorrow or pain, nor any doubt  or terror; she was in heaven.  A magnificent strain of triumphant  music now rose from organ and  choir as the anthem pealed its victorious harmony from' within tho  Abbey, bearing her soul heavenward  ou its mighty pinions. Tho words  wero vague to hor, but she saw tho  white-winged multitude, who camo  out of great tribulations, sweeping  softly by with aureoles and palms.  Then sho slept.  Claude was near her now and thev  were at last one in soul; no distracting duty could ever tear thorn  apart, though different worlds might  hold them for awhile.  Presently sho was aware of two  figures with surprised compassionate  faces standing by him. Evensong,  was over ar.d thc organist filled tho  Abbey with exulting music.  "Jessie," Claude was saying very  gently, as if to a sick person, "theso  ure my cousins, Canon and Airs.  Maynard. They wish you to go l.o  thoir  houso closo  by."  Very soon after this she was in a  cool, pretty room lying in fragrant  fresh linen, hor weary aching head  pillowed softly and her limbs at  rest for the first time for many days  antl  nights.  Philip was now stationed at Alder-  shot. Ke had not lost all hope of  finding' Jcssio. and -in his frequent  runs to London tried to follow the  inquiries   he  had   begun.    His    father  thoy drovo along. "I said I would  telegraph for you, and camo here on  tho off chanco of finding you.

Thu rules are intended ns a  guide jn the caro of the stable, cows,  milking and utensils as follows :  1. Stables should be well ventilated, lighted and drained; should have  tight floors, walls, and bo plainly  constructed.  2. No musty or dirty litter, no  strong smelling material, and no  manure should remain in tho stable  longer than  is  absolutely  necessary.  3. Whitewash the stable once or  twice a year. Would recommend using- land plaster in manure gutters  daily.  4. Feed no dry, dusty fodders previous to milkinc". If dusty, 'sprinkle  before it is foci.  5. Keep stable and dairy room in  cleanly condition.  THE COWS.  1. Keep only healthy cows.  Promptly remove suspected animals,  ln particular, add no cows to tho  herd unless it bo certain that they  are free  from  tuberculosis.  2. Do not excite tho cows or expose them' to stress or weather.  3. Feed a good cow liberally with  fresh, palatable feeding stuffs. Do  not chango those suddenly. Provide  water, pure but not too cold, in  abur.danco.  MILKING.  1. The milker should be clean, and  his clothes  likewise.  2. Brush tho udder just beforo  milkir.g and wipe with a clean cloth  or sponge.  3. Milk quietly, quickly and thoroughly.  4. Throw nway into tho gutter tho  first streams from each  teat.      This  thoroughly  wafer und  scald and  cloths  daily.  utensils inverted  sun, it possible,  use.  rinsing in boiling hot  a littlo'washing soda,  drain.

Probably there is no cause which  does n-oro to lessen the secretion of  milk thnn the fui I uro to milk cows  quite dry. Any milk loft in the udder acts as a direct chock to the secretion of a further supply, and very  frequently becomes so positive an irritant of to sot up somo kind of inflammation; hence clean milking is  one of: the first essentials on tho  dairy farm. The usual practico is  to milk twice in tho twenty-four  hours, arid* this system is generally  perfectly satisfactory if the time is  equally divided so that thore is the  same period between every two millc-  ings. Here and there,, whero n cow's  udder becomes unduly distended between milkings a slightly increased  flow can '���������,. bo secured.by more frequent milking, for it appears probably that secretion goes on more  rapidly during tho actual process of  milking than at any olher time, and  there is no doubt that tho distension of tho udder and milk channels  acts as a check upon secretion. The  great point to remember is fo milk  at regularly recurring hours. The  more irregularities that creep into  tho milking practice, so much the  loss will the secretion and supply become. The more fact of milking an  hour earlier than usual may  make a material difference in tho  yield, as also does the actual method  of milking. Generally speaking, rapid milking, when effected quietly  and with duo attention to tho comfort of the cow, ensures the largest  yield. Regularity and tho careful  uvoidancc of  DISTURBING   ELEMENTS  of every  kind   aro  tho  groat    factors  of    uniformly   largo    milk secretion.

Remove the milk promptly from  tho stable to a clean, dry - room,  whero the air is puro and sweet.  G. Stiain the milk through a clean  flannel cloth, or through two or  three thicknesses  of cheesecloth.  7. Aerate and cool tho milk as  soon as it is strained. The cooler  it is the more is souring retarded. Jf covers aro left oft tho cans,  cover  with     cloths  or  mosquito   net-  nervous or excited in any way. The  nervous condition may bo, and frequently is, caused by a new or unskilful milker, by fright, by two  much exorcise, and by thc presence  of an animal in season. The withholding' of milk is "only a temporary  matter, but if of frequent recurrence  it operates        vory injuriously  on the supply just in the same way  as  does  the  failure     to   milk     cows  SEALM OF POET ARTHUR  BRAVEST DEED IN SHE PRESENT WAR.

Tho  actual channel used by vessels drawing 2*2 feet of wafer or moro is about  800 yards wide, and., as a matter of  protection, thc Russians have anchored booms," project ing from either  shore, leaving a very narrow passage-  On both' sides of booms mines are  anchored so as to obstruct the en--  trance of"an enemy from the.outside.

Inattention tp - this  advice, bc assured, will bring diseases on j oui selves- and engender  among you typhus fever, which is*  only another name for putrid fever,  whicli "will- carry off your wives and  childicn. Let me again repeat my  -serious advice���������open your _ windows  to let in the fiesh air at least once  a day. Remember what I say : I  speak now without a fee, and can  havo no other interest than your  good,.in this my advice."  It would bo well indeed were it  possible lo extend this excellent advice to our people, especially those  living in large centers of population.  Although it would be found impossible in tho majority of cases to "never  sleep in a room without a chimney,"  as open grates are vcry littlo used  in this country, the advice to thoroughly air the rooms at least once a  day, by keeping the windows open  for a abort time,. can easily be carried out, and even if they should be  entirely closed throughout the day  ��������� (we refer especially to tho winter  season) the rooms can be perfectly  ventilated during the night by lowering one or all a fraction of an inch.  This imperceptible opening is a regular life saver, so to speak. Ventilation by some moans or another is  absolutely indispensible; such ventilation whereby impure air may be exchanged for pure���������sickness for. health.  IIOW TO  STOP BLEEDING.  It often happens in cases of accident that tho danger' to life is greatly increased by, if not solely dependent upon, the loss of blood, tho injury itself being a comparatively trivial affair. Whether light or serious  the wound can wait, indeed in most  cases must wait, for the arrival of  the physician, but the bleeding waits  for nothing���������it must be arrested  speedily, arid if it is not slopped by  some one on the spot, or if it does  not cease spontaneously, tho coming  of the physician may be useless, for  tlie wounds of a dead man need no  binding.  In classes of instruction in first aid  to the wounded, this point is always  insisted upon, and rightly; but unfortunately Kow bleeding from a cut or  torn artery can bc quickly nnd certainly arrested is not always clearly  enough explained. The pupils study  diagrams depicting    the    course and  "direction of the large arteries, and  round black or red disks are placed  at the points where pressure can be  effectively applied to shut off the flow  of blood from the parts lower down  on the limb; the application of a  tourniquet is taught, and sometimes  even the mode of tying an artery  (which is surgeon's work and not to  be attempted by. any member of a  first-aid class) ' is elaborately explained; but sometimes the lecturer  forgets to say that the most copious  bleeding can,always be,arrested,temporarily, ' arid often permanently, - by  , simple pressure made directly on tlie  .'Weed ing .point."  Ilf". you can "put your"  ' linger (literally)-ori. the: sourco of thc  hemorrhage and keep it there, ;i*yqu������_  "woundeil companion "will not bleed to  death, at least not while under your  care. ..-  One must make sure, in doiog this,  that the finger is really making pressuro on the bleeding point, which  may be deep down at the bottom of  tho wound; but the continuance of  the'bleeding will soon prove thnt thc  linger, or the cloth pad, or the  rounded stick, or whatever is used to  make pressure with, is not pressing  on the right spot. Care must be  taken not to soil the wound with  dirty fingers or a dirty rag. If time  nnd opportunity permit, the finger  should first be washed or at least  wiped with a clean cloth, and if a  cloth pad is used thc outer layers at  least must be free from visible dirt.

The Remarkable Experience of An.  Irishman.  An Irish correspondent of The London Daily Mail vouches for the accuracy of tho -following remarkable  story :  "As the result of a peculiarly vivid  dream," he says, "Mr. Charles E.  Stanley, B.A., of Erin-villas, Newcastle, County Down, is sulTering  from the effects of what appears to  be severe sunburn, and he is anxiouu  to learn if any similar case has been  recorded, and if any adequate scientific explanation can be put forward.  "Mr. Stanley, in relating his almost weird'experience, says: M am  thirty years of age, a student, and  very palefaced. Having been confined to my rooms in the city of Belfast by severe literary work for some  months, I paid a flying visit to Newcastle on Monday last, when the ,lit-  tlo town was deluged with rain and  tho sun  obscured.  " 'I remained indoors all the evening reading, and retired to bed about  11 o'clock. During th'e night t  dreamt I was lying on the seashore  in a strange locality, and that tho  sun was shining with the intense  heat, so much so that I felt my face  and hands actually being burned. In  my dream I remember thinking what  a taancd faco I would have aftei lying so long exposed to the glaring  sun-  " 'The dream passed away, and in  .tlie morning I arose and commenced  to shave. What was my astonishment, on looking into the mirror, to  find my face and neck literally tanned  dark brown, my nose in a parboiled  condition, and. the..skin broken,- my  forehead covered with freckles',-' and'  my hands . also tanned brown and  freckled.... "''..-���������  ���������-���������' 'The experience, made'me-uneasy,"  arid accordingly I--spoke to-_a^ doctor,  who was staying''.in. the same house.  He" said -I. was badly-sunburnt, by exposure^ I explained I had not been  in the sun for a single hour for  months, and that I arrived in Newcastle in a deluge of rain, at tho  same time mentioning my dream.  " *Ho was amazed, and said it was  the 'most remarkable case he ever  know, but ho believed the force -afc  imagination had in my dream affected the skin and caused the sunburn  and freckles.  " 'The doctor asked mo to write to  the press, as the caso is a most remarkable one. I may add I am a  total abstainer, and am* free from  any disease or skin affection."  DON'TS FOR YOUNG MOTHERS.

M DIALS THE FASHION  TIMEKEEPERS      THAT     WERE  ONCE FAMOUS.  Indicators      of     Time   in Ancient  English!    Church-  Yards.  Sun dials have come again into  fashion they are to be seen everywhere, snys Chamber's Journal, and  very often wrongly placed. Elegant  designs, too, are the modern ones,  and a lurgo place of business in London is kept almost wholly occupied  in making new models to attract the  eye and appeal to the imagination.  A largo quantity of the stones of  Christ's Hospital ami old Kow  Bridge wore bought nnd have been  carved into nice pedestals with, a  historic flavor.  In the old days no church was  without ils sun dial. Old St. Cuth-  bert's in Edinburgh, for example, has  a dial on the original tower to wliich  the new building wns added.  In many old country towns the dial  has for centuries occupied a prominent place on the church or in tho  kirkyard. It was the stnndaru timekeeper. But one farmer's wife in  Yorkshire has a series of grooves on  the stone flag of her house door, and  has always the correct time under  her eye���������when the sun shines.  A pretty new dial decorates Inver-  leith Park, Edinburgh; and this is a  very-useful -^.dditiqii to;: public,places,  aria' gardens." ' Lord Haddington has  a very hahd^onie sun dial of massive  design in his -gardens at Tj'ringhame;  Lord Tlchester has a?*^>'iety. of: dials  so-placod that. ho\ct&?itell the time  cih the glass "of-; his" bedroom window  without getting out of,bed;    '*���������'-  AT SANDRINGHAM  there is a very fine dial engraved on  a slab of slate and built into the  walls of the house. The mottoes  chosen by the King and Queen are :  '���������My time is in Thy hand" and "Let  others tell of storms and showers,  I'll only count your sunny hours." A  huge stone dial, six feet square, is  on the wall of the Old Tile House in  Buckinghamshire.  "Begone about your business" was  inscribed on the dial of the old brick  house which stood in Inner Temple  terrace, London; and the present old  sun clock in Pump Court has marked the disappearing hours, for over  three centuries. While various cathedrals, such as Ripon Minster, have  very old dials, singular to say St.  Paul's, London, has none; but as  clocks wero just appearing when Wren  designed his masterpiece it is probable that the old timo had to give  place to the new.  Tho unsavory locality known ns  Seven Dials derived its.* name from a  large stone dial which stood in the  centre of the square with streets  branching off. A splendid example  of Inigo Jones's architecture stood  for years in the middle of the new  equaro at Lincoln's Inn, with the  proud motto, "Let your light so  shine before mon," and the irony of  fato was exemplified when it was removed to make room for a large  flaring gas lamp.

For hewing the stone alone an  Edinburgh mason was paid ������408.  In the beautiful cemetery at Mary-  lebone is an unfinished dial whose  shaft was ATom a design by Mr. Gilbert, R. A.

One well  known man has gono so far as to  hove a beautifully carved sun clock  erected on the marble - stono which  covers his family burying place���������a  constant reminder, truly, of the passage of days.  To got a pretty sun dial is not a  costly thing to-day.

Between theso priees  THERE IS WIDE CHOICE.  Each purchaser has his own ideas  as to a pedestal should ho not wish  to fix his clock to the houso or gar-  don wall. The multipartite dial is  much too elaborate, an article for tho  ordinary man. It boars on its brass  face divisions showing the difference  of time between tho place where it is  erected and other places on tho  globe, such as Jerusalem, Moscow,  Cairo,  Yokohama. ���������'���������-.'

When the  incorporation of clock-makers was instituted by charter in 1631, they  had jurisdiction not only over clocks,  but also over sun 'dials, and had authority to search for and break' all  bad and unreliable dials.  There must . have been many an  error in the years that have elapsed  since it was first known how to calculate the flight of timo by the sun,  for we read that King Ahaz had a  sun clock', and it was in 742 B.C.  that  he reigned  over  Judah.  has an ancient time plate --.tanLing  10 feet 4- inches high and bearing tho  date 1707 and Lord Rosebery has a  pleasing dial at Dalmeny,-  What is said to be tho most costly  sun-dial ever erected was one in  pyramidal form, set up in the year  1669 by order of Charles H., facing  the banqueting house at Whitehall.  Its inventor was a Jesuit and professor of mathematics at Liege.  This tall pyramid contained uo  fewer than 271 different dials. Some  showed the hours according to the  Jewish, Babylonian, Italian and astronomical ways of counting, whilo  others displayed . tables pertaining to  astronomy, " geography, astrology,  etc. There "were portraits "on glass  of the.

Tho Duke of Sutherland had a very.  expensive dial erected quite recently  In thc gardens. at Churlpy l"ooil������  Surrey.  Quite unique has been the idea of  the Duke of Newcastle. Tn his lunisa  at Clumber ho has a pedes*-ul on  which ure two iron hoops about a  yard in diameter placed transversely,  ono inside the othei', with a rod  across the middle. In the centre is  a knob which, when the sun shines,  throws its shadow.on the figures.that  are marked in gold on the hoops, so  that a very attractive time clock is  produce .  Another departure from the conventional stone pedestal is. on .the  lonely island of St. Mary's "one of the  Scilly group..__, An old cannon is  stuck^, upward "with a dial-plate fixed  across its mouth.  -AN OBELISK AT ROME,  which was brought : from Egypt hy  the Emperor, Augustus, has been s-et  up as a gnomon. On the :pacom*nt  around it are lines marked in bron7e,  and for over a century Romans have  glanced nt the "hour o'clock". as  they proceeded on their way.  Thero was ingenuity on the part of  the French gunner at Paris who had  charge of tlio gun for proclaiming  the hour of noon. He so arranged  the dial that the hour of noon concentrated the rays of the sun through  a burning glass on the powder at the  cannon's touch hole and tho time  gun was thus fired.  Perhaps the present method of firing bv electricity at Edinburgh Castle is'the more reliable, for on. some  days the sun is obscured bj- clouds.
