Worst Case in Liberal Camp  in Many Years���������Grit Candidate Takes to Flight���������Great  Excitement io Ontario.  Bi5I.levij.le, Ont., Nov.. 29.���������Revelations in the bogus ballot scandal continue to excite eastern Canada.  The flight of Byion O. Lott, late  Liberal parliamentary candidate for  West Hastings, to tho United States  and the location of a large number of  the croaked billot boxes, are the latest  sensational incidents growing out of  tho OiTe-o.  Lott was released from jail, after  much difficulty in finding bondsmen,  on ,$2,000 bail furnished by his relations. He immediately disappeared  and was later discovered in Now  Yoik.  The offence is nol covered by extradition treaty between England anel the  States, but the government propose  to urge the fugitive's return ou the  ground of public policy.  Lott wired to-day from Syracuse,  N. Y.:���������"I will come luck and suffer  sooner than see three honest persons  whosigned my bond lose their money."  The telegram provoked much excitement, but it is" "not thought the  accused will come back.  Kixasi'OX, "Gilt."

No part  of the harbor at Port Arthur can now  be concealed from the Japanese.  London, Nov. 30.���������According to a  Tokio despatch to tho Chronicle, tliere  is an'ollicial rumor that the Japanese  hauled huge carnage guns to the top  of 203-Meter Hill, from whence their  fire had a sweep of the whole harbor.  This report doubtless goes beyond the  facts, but various despatches indicate  the progress of the Japanese in the  direction of Poit Arthur.  ���������Don't forget that with every dollar  cash purchase, made at the Red Cross  Drugstore, you get a chance for one  of those beautiful presents shown in  the window.  X  Tho "Vancouver Province, (Liberal)  gives the following statement in reference to the Grand Trunk construction  inBrilish Columbia, it should make  interesting reading for the followers  of the "sordiel seven."  "Since a time shoilly prior to the  federal elections the people of British  Columbia have been indulging themselves in the pleasing belief that work  on tho Pacific section of the Grand  Trunk Pacific Railway was to be begun without delay. Assurances of  this were conveyed tu theni from several authoritative sources and unceasingly delivered through the medium  of candidates for Parliament anil their  platform lieutenants. Hon. Raymond  Prefontaine, the Minister of Marino  and Fishei ies, when in the province  over two months ago, slated in the  most unmistakable terms that construction in Biilish Columbia would  begin simultaneously, or practically so,  with construction in the East; and  Hon. Senator Templemaii at a Victoria inpeting produced anel read a  letter from President Charles M. Hays  which clinched all these confident  statements and left no further room  for doubt.   '���������  "It was largely on lho stiongth of  these'assurances lhaf British Columbia gave such a elecided, such a unanimous support to the Liberal Government. The'opponents of the administration had attempted to s innke  political capital out oi the fact.that a  clause had not been inserted in the  contract with the "company making  simultaneous construction in this  province, ono of the bineling terms,  and" they-; were undoubtedly by this  means influencing, the electorate who  were, disposed, to . imagine that tlie.  Government liad neglecteel our interests. The assurances-given by Mr.'  Piefontaino personally .and. thoso delivered by President Hays.through  Senator Teiupleman demolished the  arguments' of the Opposition candi-  ilates anel speakers, and entirely satisfied the people. Thc statements made  by these gentlemen, one speaking wilh  authotity for the Government and the  other for the Company, were unequivocal. They promised that work'  would begin in British Columbia at  the same time and with equal vigor  that it was begun east of the mountains'. The people accepted lho assur-  nnf'os t1iii*3i:iip.iiled withouth"si.a������i,'in  or further fji!i.*si.ioii-i, an 1 sent a 'solid'  l/'-eral riMiiesehtiiiioii to iho iloine  of ("nmuKKi.i.  ������������������U i-,. only three we"'.** since tha  elections, antl we 11 ic given In understand that in harboring tho belief we  have refcried to wc were cherishing a  delusion.

[lays  of tho Grand Tiunk Pacific, whoso  letter written "to-Senator Templemaii  hael such a forceful influence with the  electors of this piovince.is authority,  for thc statement that nothing will lie  done in British Columbia for two or  three years.  "Mr. David II. Hiys has just rs-  lurned fiom Montieal, ivhere he mel  his brother, in whose confidence he  undoubtedly is. When ho speaks as  ho does, fiankly anil deliberately, we  can regard his statements as coming  directly from the President of the  company and as representing tho  actual blafo of 'ill'airs, Mr, Hays docs  not hesitate to assume all responsibility for what ho says, and his words  will unquestionably ho taken by the  public as conclusive on tliis matter.  "Now, whal construction are we to  place on this announcement, which  conies practically direct froTn the  president of the Grand Trunk Pacific?  Aro we to understand that all the  assurances whicli we received, prior  to the election, regarding a matter eif  such importance to us and to our  business interests were intended only  as an election dodge, as a trap to  catch votes? If Mr. Hays'statement  is true, if there is no intention of  beginning work here for two or three  years, wo havo been grossly deceived,  and wo can only presume ihat wo  have been made the victims of a miserable political conspiracy.

Tn fifty-eight years the establish-  ���������ment of J. Hicks' licensed pawnbroker, had suffered "-anny chunge-s���������  generally for the ���������Torso. Onu thing  alone had changed for thc better.  Hicks himself hud been modulated by  time of his last visit, and the chance  that ho could have survived appeared  comfortingly remote. A conviction  that at length the mystery of so  many years woulel he somehow revealed to him penetrated thc old  pawnbroker's mind, and as thc critical date approached Ke felt an almost youthful eagerness of anticipation. As a rule, his visitor had  turned up a day or two earlier than  was necessary, but this year he had  not appeared on the. morning of the  final day.  lly tho terms of the loan, the owner's" rights expired nt noon, and ns  that hour approached Hicks took  down tho umbrella with an unsteady  hand anel deliberated upon a plan ot  the great composer 'Time from a par-  investigation.       He had amply  ticularly  vulger,    self-acscrtive young  ��������� man of twenty into a veteran of     a  singular gentleness and benignity     of  aspect.  And it Had gradually come about  through some resultant twist in tho  old man's mind, that, in a general  way, he preferred his pledges to his  money, anil that certain items upon  his shelves, representing money hopelessly lost to liim, had become, nevertheless, the source of profound satisfaction.  Such was No. 831, as it stood entered  upon his books.  Commercially regarded, No. 831  was a green silk umbrella, with a  heavy metal handle of considerable  intrinsic value; sentimentally, it  ��������� stood-for. Hick's oldest and . dearest  friend.  It had -beer.* pawned one morning in  the early years of his business life by  a respectable elderly gentleman,- who"  after some haggling,   accepted . for ��������� it'  "*  the sum ol one pound.  Nearly a year    from, the date     of  ,   this transaction,  and just before the  ���������   expiration  of  the  term  of tlie loan,  a young man had turned up and had  inquired with evident anxiety regarding the pledged umbrella.  "Tt is most important," said the  young man, "for���������for family reasons,  that this article be redeemed. There  is no objecting, I presume, to ray  paying the loan anel interest on behalf of my���������my .relative, and taking  the property out of your hands?"  "None whatever," said Hicks, "provided you have tlie ticket."  "But I haven't," said tlie young  man earnestly. "It is at the bottom  of the "sea, with the man to whom  you gave it."-  "How can you prove that to me?"  said Hicks. "So, no. my friend: I  must have iny ticket."  "But the thing is worthless! I will  pay you ten times the loan to safeguard you against any claim���������twenty  times! "Great heavens!" he cried,  excitedly, "I must have it, man!  "More depends tipon it than you  know!"  But Hicks was obdurate, and tlio  stranger, after having exhausted his  stock of argument, entreaty, and pecuniary temptation, fir.allv went  away.  When he Iind gone, tlie broker took  down the umbrella from its shelf and  e-*.amir.e:i it with a new interest.  There was some mystery about it.  ."Well, in tliirty days it might be  solved, for if, as the youmr man had  said, its owner and the ticket were  both at the bottom of the sea. the  umbrella would become his when the  loan  matured.  But the matter turned out by no  means so simply. Two days before  the loan matured the young man relumed, clearly fortified with a better  knowledge of the business, and of his  powers and privileges, paid the interest on the loan for another year, and  thus   renewed    the    matter    for that  pro-  only  vided  himself  with  tools,   and  awaited liberty to use them.  Ono! Two! Tliree! Four! Five!  Six! Seven! Kight! Nine! Ten!  131 even I     Twelve!  Hicks had selected a cold chisel  from his layout, and was poising a  hammer to strike, when a shadow  fell upon his desk, and a familiar  voice said:  "Yes; you've beaten mo. I haven't  the money! I've tried hard, but  when ono Hasn't money for food even,  bigger things must go."  Hicks paused in liis work' and looked at liis visitor. He was pale and  emaciated, and could hardly stand  from weakness. What little life Was  left him burned in his eyes, with  which'lie eagerly devoured the: article  the two had so long contended for.  "Let me show you," he . said.  "There is an easier way.''- -  "'.'He took the umbrella from ' Hicks,  and, inserting an awl' in one eye of  the carved face on the umbrella-head,  with this leverage easily unscrewed  tho 'top, to the pawnbroker's amazement and disgust. The cavity thus  discovered contained only a piece of  folded paper, yellow witli ago. Upon  this Hicks pounced with a kind*, of  whine of animal greed and satisfaction.  But the stranger's hand fell upon  his with an energy of which his feeble  body scarcely seemed  capable.  "Don't touch it!" he cried*. "For  Heaven's sake don't! It is nothing-  nothing to you; to mo it is so much!  No," ho urged, as Hicks strove to  withdraw his prize; "not yet, at any  rate. Not until you have heard my  story."  He sank into a chair, His Hand still  grasping Hick's wrist, and went on  passionately:  ���������'It belonged to hcr father���������this umbrella. He was an employer, and a  rich' man; and I loved liis daughter,  and she loved me. But h'e found it  out, and forbade me his house���������forbade mc to . think of hcr. Thit I  wouldn't give her up, and slie  wouldn't give me up, so we used to  write ono another every clay, and  send the letters back and forth in  tliis umbrella-handle. The old man  always carried it, wet or dry, and I  used to watch my clmncc during tlie  day, and unscrew the top-while ho  was o'ut of tlio office, nnd put in my  letter, and she did the same at  home. It seemed a grent joke, then,  to make him our postman. Great  Heaven, what a joke it. turned out!"  Hicks slowly withdrew liis hand,  leaving tho yellow paper between  them on Uio elosk.  ������������������Business wont wrong," continued  the stranger, after a pause. "Thc  old man got involved worse and  worse, tried tlie wrong way out of  it, and liad to skip. He realized or.*  everything he had���������even tHis, as jt  turned out���������and left between two  days, taking her with him.

The instep-length  skirts nro not only to bo worn for  walking, but for reception gowns, and  those who look best in skirts of that  length will wear them, and in ninny  instunccs ovening gowns of round  length for dancing will be seen.  In tlio longer skirts, thoso that  barely touch in tlio front and at tho  sides and lie on tho floor in tho bnck  will bo fashionable for dinner gowns  and general evening wear.  The skirts that lie on tlio ground  several inches all tho way around  and that were as ungraceful and slovenly are taking their gorm-Iaden folds  out of sight.  Por women, especially those of middle age, or of too evident stoutness  or thinness���������either being fatal to  grace���������and also the short woman,  look better in skirts that just clear  the pavement than .in tlie shorter or  instep length, but such' skirts oro  more or less a nuisance, for* thev ure  just long enough-to dip into "every  puddle, or .other ��������� filth .on* the -street  and yot too; short to* hold' tip, a pe-.  ci-liarly ungraceful effect being given  "by the lifting of skirts that manifestly clear the ground. Perhaps the  compromise between this and nn  instep length' is best found in the  skirt that clears the pavement an  incfii all the way around.  It is to ho hoped that all women  adopting round skirts will see lo it  tKat thoy are not only as long or a  shade longer in tho front tfian the  hack when first worn, but also aftor  being worn awhile. If a skirt i.s not  cut properly there is a tendency for  it to ride tip in "t'hc front, anel this  tendency should bo discovered'.'.���������'and'  remedied, for nothing is more fatal  to one's appearance than to have a  skirt tilling up at. tlie front. Kven  a properly cut skirt, if it is figlit,  may have its hang ruined if its wearer is not careful how sho sits and  stands in it.  Th'e new skirts tliat clear th'o pavement from present indications are to  be fuller, nnd nil sorts of plaits used,  but it i.s liardly likely that in tlie  heavy winter cloths tin's fullness will  obtain in walking gowns, as if would  make thorn too cumbersome to bc  otherwise thnn tiring, and American  women, especially the younger one.**,  aro, despito thoir following of fashions, not slaves to extreme modes,  nntl they prefer comfort to discomfort in walking gowns.  Coats fitted at the back and over  the hips but swinging a bit loose in  front to show vests of contrasting,  colors, arc a feature of the new walking costumes, but thc devotee of tho  Eton coat need not be discouraged.  The Eton is a case of the .survival of  the fittest, and while many attempts  have been made to dethrone it, it is  too comfortable and too --roll suited  to the requirements of numberless women to be otherwise than fashionable  so long as coals are worn.  enco Queen Alexandra has ever shown  for these tints; "and will, therefore, be  extremely popular. It will be more  than welcome il it servos lo bring  tliose lovely gems, amethysts, into  favor once more, in obedience to t'he  fashion that decrees that jewels must  match the gowns.  A BOLT ���������M_THE BLUE  STRANGE FATE OF A BRIGAN-  TINE IN* MID-OCEAN*.  A Theory That Many Ships   Have  Been Struck by  Meteorites.  THE COLORS OF THE SF.ASOX"  nnd  The "Mexican Herald recently printed nn interesting account given by  Mr. L. H. Winthrop of tho full of a  large meteor about 1300 yards from a  ship in llio Indian Ocean. After do-  scribing vividly th'o strange scene, tho  narrator expressed his belief that of  the ships that disapjiear. mysteriously  many may be hit by falling meteors  and sent to tho bottom.  It is certain that a ship struck by  a meteoric mass as large as somo  which have fallen on land would bo  demolishcel suddenly. Thero is a meteoric stono in South America estimated to weigh 30,000 pounds, ono  in Mexico even larger, and Yale Col-  lego hns a more fragment weighing  1,7-10 pounds. A meteor estimated  by astronomers to bo a mile in diameter passed ovcr "Europe on tho_  night of Aug. 18, 17S3, and in 1803  one of theso. celestial tramps burs!  over Normanely -*and scattered more  than 2,000 fragments over threo  Square leagues of ground.  Just fifty years ago this month a  vcry largo meteor was seen ovor the  Eastern States. It burst into two  pieces, one of which fell into the sea  OlT Sandy Hook. Tn 1884 Captain  Swart, of tho Hutch barque "J. P.  A.," reported the. narrow escape of  his vessel from destruction by a meteoric stone. His log showed that on  Marcli 19, in latitude 87.39 north and  longitude 57 west, at about 5 p.m.,  a large meteor was seen to break into two parts, one of which, having  appearance of a ball of lire, fell toward tho sea. Judging that tho ball  would fall in the barque's courso,  Captain Swart hove to under storm  sails. Scarcely Had hc done so when  the meteor fell close alongside, causing great commotion of tho water  and cross seas, which  WASHED OFF. THE BECK.  Tho boat from tho fiery mass was intense for a moment, and blistered the  paint on tl-.o ship's siele. The barometer for a few moments oscillated so  violently that no reading could be  taken.  Somo fifteen or more years ago, I  .spoke of Capt. Swarfs report to- an  old Danish' sailor in San Francisco,  and ivas moved to tell me o; an  experience of liis own, for which, of  course, there is only his testimony.  The old man had been mate of the  barque "Antelope," which was burnc'l  at sea on a" voyage from San Francisco to Lherpool in I860, and ho  had no log to show in verification of  his tale. I givo il substantially in  his own words, from notes made at  tho  timo:  "Wo were becalmed in the Pacific  about nine or ten degrees north of  thc equator and somewhere near 123  west longitude. Tho 'Antelope' rolled  liko a log, tho sails llappcd against  thc masts, and made tho only stir of  air you could foci. It was the second night of the calm and the port  watch  was on deck.

That was where  tho briguntinc had heen,  "Tho light nnd noise Had aroused  tKo watch on deck, and tho men wore  gat'hered in a group by the foremast,  blinking their eyes' and wondering  what had happened. They hadn't  scon nil that 1 had, anel didn't know  just what Had made the great glare  of light. I told thenv lo look for  tho brignntinc, nnd sont. a nign nloft  to boo if Ke could make out anything  whero sho had boon. Thoy were just  about struck dumb when thoy saw  the sea clear of nil craft hut our  own, anel asked mo if the brignntino  hnel blown up. Thc man aloft could  not make out anything. They wero  all taken aback when I told what I  had seen, and of courso their superstitious fonrs wore excited.  "Thinking some poor fellow miglit  bc floating whore the hrigantine wont  down.

Tho world, ns often, is mistaken. He is something greater than  a fighter; as a judge of men he ranks  much higher than as a soldier. Hi.s  men never cease to marvel at tho ease  with which he accomplishes the most  difficult tasks of a commander, anel  at tho rarity of mistakes that he  makes in tho choice of his subordinates. Thero is a saying among the  men of the Nippon navy that runs  something like this:  "There is only one commander who  uses his subordinates like his own  fingers, and the namo of that man is  Admiral Togo."  Tho old timo ideal of the Samurai  was the welding of the soldier and  tho scholar in one; and Admiral Togo  is not false to the' ideal; he is a student as well  ns a fighter.  "I am no scholar," ha is reported  to have said. "From my early  youth, however, my masters have  compelled me to examine and follow  carefully the teachings of the school  of Yomci. It seems to, me that a  soldier can derive a great deal of  benefit from the study of Yomei."  The Admiral is certainly not the  first or the only soldier of Nippon  who lias ackneiwledgcd his debt to  t'he teachings of tho Chinese philosopher whom our people know under  the name of Yomei. The school of  Yomei emphasizes a perfect poise of  tho soul. Tho students of Yomei  value more tlian anything else the  quiet balance of nerve, the equilibrium which" cannot be distributed by a  j little thing like a bursting shell with-  j in a few feet of a ��������� man or a sword  gleam a few inches before the eyes.  The first lesson that a-master of  sword or a master of jiu-jitsu tries  to instil into tho mind of a Samurai  youth is the importance of attaining  coolr.e-s of nerve and perfect poise  of tho soul. In the eyes of the Nippon fighting men theso qualities are  much moro important t'han tho clever  handling of sword or gun.   r>   PEER.  AND   CL0CKW"AKER.  Lord     Grimthorpe .

Then  Flossie "and. bed and all were done up  in a great big blanket bundle, and  the,front windows'thrown up fu.ll  height.

All who would liko to know how  three men can exist when cast away  on tho shores of a polar land on tho  vergo of winter, with food enough  for a fow weeks, with no shelter excepting a tout, no fuel and no other  resources save two guns, some ammunition and n sail needle, may  have thoir curiosity .satisfied in tho  detailed narrative which Dr. J. Gun-  nar Andorsson i.s writing. Ho will  tell of tho Antarctic winter of 1903  which ho and two comrades spoilt in  a misery of dirt and darkness on  tho bleak shore of northern Graham  Land, to tho south of South America.  Somo details of tho story havo already been made public by Dr. Nor-  dcnskiold in his recc.*r^'ldress before  tha Koyal Geographical Society in  London.  'The throo mon kept lifo in thoir  bodies through tho winter, but lived  in great wretchedness, and so changed wero thoy in appearance when daylight camo that their best friends  would "not have known them. They  wore members of Dr. Otto Norden-  skiold's pnrty on " tho steamer Antarctic, but he did not know that  any men from that vessel were on  land; and wlion he met them in. tho  spring he did not recognize them as a  part of his* own expedition until they  told thoir names.  No wonder, for they were ns black  aa coal from head to foot, with long  black hair hanging down ovcr thoir  shoulders and black,' bushy beards.  The skis on which they were travelling over the snow were the ��������� only  thing about theni that seemed to indicate somo acquaintance with civilization. They scorned to belong to  one of the lower typos of men who  live almost in a natural state,  LIKE  THE BRUTE   CREATION.  and by the timo tho winter night had  fairly fallen they had killed and frozen about  MONTHS 400 OF THESE BIRDS.  Penguins aro not good eating, and  tho art of cookery, as practised in  the Antarctic regions, has novor mado  their flesh very palatable.  But they wore thc stair of lifo of  tho threo inen that winter, okod out  by a mouthful or two of bread each  ���������day, an occasional bite of preserved  moat and tho flesh of seals that were  killed now and thou and whoso chief  utilits* was to supply oil for fuel.  Seal blubber was piled in a largo  meat tin and sot to blazing and  smoking, nnd it wus thus that tho  skins, clothing and sealskins worn by  tho men woro turned densely black.  Every ono has heard of tho revulsion of stomach nnd norvcH from  which mon suffer whon thoy try to  cnt a quail a-day for thirty days.  When men fnller at such a task, wo  can imagine that nothing but tlio  fear of death would drive thoin to  eat tho coarso and greasy penguin  every day for seven months. The  feat was accomplished and it shows  what men can do when necessity  drives.  But tho hardest part ot their lot,  after all, was the protracted confinement during tho long stormy winter.  Seal blubber was too scarco to bo  used excepting when thelneals were  cooked, and so for days at a'time  the threo men curled up in their  sleeping hogs in the pitchy darkness,  with nothing to read if they could  havo seen to read, an'd nothing to do  but listen to the flowing of the polar  storm. It was hard fate, but they  como out" of it in marvellous fashion,  evon though the winter left them as  black as Africans.  Dr. Andersson believes that a full  description of their experiences will  bo of service to future explorers in  distress during tho survey of ,the  desolate and stormy southern lauds.

The first thing to do was to provide shelter an'd then to secure aU  the game possible before darkness put  an end to hunting.  They put up their tent and piled  up stones so as completely to encircle the tent with a stone wall.  Over the whole thoy spread tlie piece  of tarpaulin.  Their abode was thus provided with  double walls; and when the snow  came they covered their hut deep  under snow, excepting at the narrow  entrance.

This  means "that the first stage of digestion has been mechanically accomplished in Grape-Nuts food at the  factories and therefore anyone, no  matter how weak the stomach, can  handle it and grow strong, for all  the nourishment  is  still  there.

This is somewhat surprising, coming  from the source il iloos. so soon after  the general elections. The Colonist  predicted all along that that is precisely what would 'happen.

I told Reilly so, and   he did  not like it at all.    He asked   mo   if   I  had   any   objection     to   his   making  ariangctiieiU.s with  my men to mako  the   boxes.

They .were  to   receive   two   hundred   dollars for  dning   so.   ' After dickering with the  boys, Reilly turned   to  mo and asked  if  I  would   mind forwarding them to  liim.    I agreed.    He then asked me to  forward   tbem  by  express  to   C.  A.  Kiivanagli,   Ogdonsbiirg,   where they  would be called  for.

Banff as a Winter Resort.  Some way or other we Canadians  have heretofore held tbe verj- foolish  opinion that when-we wanted a winter  holiday, we must seek summer climes.  To be sure, Victoria and other coast  cities appear in verdure clad the  whole year round, aud thus at the  door we have perpetual summer. But  that wasn't what we wanted; we  must go south, (fashion said so). We  must visit Yankeeland (custom demanded it). We must pick roses in  Decern l-.c-r,=and-tU!!:i^our=:backa^ou=JJ)iiL  snowbanks, because���������ob, will, because. Wasn't that sufficient reason ?  But .ill that has been changed. We  find outsiders, Kng'ishinen, Scotchmen, beggar men, chief anil the world  generally hnve decided tliat Canada  is the proper place to spend a winter  holiday, nnd this year of our Lore!,  Ninetcen-liundrrti-nnd-feiur, will see  the world flocking to Ran IT, the beautiful, says a. writer in the Free Press.  Banff hns long been  Lho  mecuv  of  the ncrvo-worn, who  would  seek and  find   healing   in   its   magic    springs.  Banff has  long been  theme  for poet  and painter, and  wioltler  of  the pen.  Banff, an isle of beauty set in  a sp.%  of bills,   a   tiny, patch   of   advanced  civilization walled in by tbe untamed  wilds which creep over  and  threaten  its    citadel.

Where  such leaping  craggy  heights  for  the  ski-man?      Where such   silver sheen  of    water-bed     for    the      steel-shod  skater?   And whore, ob where, would  you find such sight as  is   found   from  the mighty   peaks   of   Uie"'fn,r-fn.iriud  Oasc'itles?  I well remember breaking thc first  footfall of the New Year (1808) on a  glorious Sabbath morning on the  beautiful hillside haunts of BaiilV.    Of  steeps anel sharing tho early sunshine  with the rabbits that scurried across  my path in that upward run. Of  watching the vaporous veils that rose  from the mystic springs that miule  thu hillside Aveep, und of dipping  liands in tho hot waters of tlio famous  sulphur springs that gusli out and  run elown tho mountain side, foaming  fairy fringes as tlioy leap the sluices  of the downward wny, Half way up  this whiUid wall there stood a lilllo  chalet known us "Wright's," and every  stop in tbo uscont bud, as n sign of  pain beguiled, crutches, iron-hunt'  slaIV uml stick, wordless tribute t<> the  boiiling springs which bail givon life  and strength and boldness of limb lo  tliose who hail gone before.  So Baiifl' tbo beautiful is to lie u  winter resort hereafter! Woll, thoso  who go thoro will llnil tbat winter  sports in Canada are not tbo least delightful of our annual games. Let the  ski-er boar with bim his "flying  solos;" let the coaster prepuro for  such wild rides down the mountain  siele as never before was dreamed of;  let the skater curry to Banff lochs and  the long sweep of the Bow river his  stoel runners; for nowhere in all the  world, outside of Holland, is such a  curvetting carry-you-witb-it 'stream  found, as lies there ! What a place  for camp fires during tho December  nights! Antl what place so filled  for carnival fun as amongst tliose  winding hills, snow-dipped ancl  siiicldetl from the outsido winds of  December ! At "Devil's lakes," what a  place for the Scottish curler ! "Eh,  mon, isn't it auld Banfl' o' the Scottish hills again?" And if you wish  for iv winter spin beneath the warm  robes of fur, where would you find  such a stretch behind pacing horses  of mettle as in Unit winding way that  lies between Anthracite and the hollow of tbe Bauir hills? Ancl for a  winter's evening- camp-fire dance,  whore woulcl the seeker find sport  anything to equal Sun Dance canyon ?  And returning to take in thc spiral  ascent that hugs the limbs of Tunnel  mountain, looking down upon Bow-  valley and, seeing, the world asleep  beneath its winter mantle of snow.  And when the cljiy's sports are tlone  and night falls swiftly down as it  does, mysteiiously and swiftly in that  hillside haunt, what so splendid as the  family gatherings about the open fireplaces of the old sanitarium itself?  Whore would you find a more genial  smile to welcome you, Stranger within  the Gates, than that, of good-Dr. Brett  himself, whose features glow with the  warm welcome of the landed lord of a  wide, wido domain? Where hospitality runs to bubbling over. Where at  a minimum of cost a maximum of  pleasure is to be found, and where?  for those who will it, the eloor is open  all the twelve month year round.  Yes.

One tlio clear unci sunny afternoon  following tlio - grout thunderstorm,  Jc-O'iiu, palpitating wilh four und  shuir.-^, passion und dt'spuir, found  horii'If Hying past unfuiniliur fields,  ���������Krungo towns und villages steeped  in golden li;;lit, in the afternoon express to London*���������Hint city of inurvel  and splendor, whitlier gravitate tho  greatent thinkers und workers, whoso  streets are pnvol with gold und  canopied with fame; .Jessie, who had  never travelled express before, or  been twenty miles from tho native  steeple, nnd whose fresh heart had  once thrilled at the very name of  London.  Hut she cai*e'd little to-duy whither  she was flying, ns long us it was  away from the magnetism that must  Moon overpower both reason nnd  principle, and from the disgrace that  smirched her fair name. From both  of these she fled, with unreflecting  fear, seeking only to hide Herself, and  instinctively choosing the vast chaos  of London as the most secure place  of concealment. She thought it the  best field for the exercise of the art  by which in lier simplicity- she intended to live; but. the main purpose in her choice of destination wus  concealment. Every pant of the engine tore somo life out of her heart,  every throb robbed her of hope and  strength, since every turn of those  rushing wheels bore her rnrlher and  farther from the one being to whom  all her nature tended with irresistible force. But this flight was hor  only chance of salvation, as she knew  by overy pang tearing her weak  heart. Had she remained, there was  now nothing to save her but tho|  strength of that weary, passion-'  strained young heart, to which sho  dared not trust.  For  .Jessie  seriously  believed     hor-  What  course  .'.���������eeing     oyc;  her mental  vision     was  tilled   with   Claude's  fuco  ti'ucetl     on  the  dark  background  of  tho     storm,  roaring through  tho drenched woods.  Claude's  face,  always beautiful,    and  now   eloquent   with       passion.      His  words kept    echoing in her ears���������the  philosophic    theories,  the reproaches,  tho  tenderness,   the  anger,   tho     sorrow,  tho pleading!      Yet above    all,  liko tho voico of  Clod  above  the  tumult of the storm,  boomed  in    deep  rolling   thunders,   "Thou   shalt  not,"  silencing all else.  TTow terrible was this now and  untried ocean of fooling, this strong  clinging of soul to soul, this invincible necessity of annihilating self  and merging one's being in that of  another.        She    had never    thought  that womanhood was to bo entered  through this fiery baptism, she  -would fain havo remained a child.  How strango to think of hard-faced,  comnioiirplaco matrons she knew having drunk of this intoxicating cup.  Kven Mrs. I'lummer in this light acquired an. aureole of far-off romance,  strangely suited with her homely activities and russet preoccupations;  had not she, too, once waited with a  beating heart for tho sound of a  young footstep,  in  the twilight?'  But Mrs. Plummer, on being gently  sounded on this point; gave but no  tender vibrations in response, nnd  .Jessie, seeking sympathy, turned lo  Sarah on that last, right,when her  faithful  old friend sat by- hcr bedside'and   parting from  speed toward each other,  subtle brain arranged their  through that intricato maze?  But what is tliis, looming aim  solemn, and majestic in the gray and  misty sky, a sky so strnge to Jessie,  with its thick veil, through which  golden lustre seems ever on thc point  to stream, a sky full of romance and  poetic suggestion? Slender, unsub-  stuntial, and mist-like as are those  towers piercing th'o mist, sho knows  them well." This i3 London at last;  there nro lho houses of Pari lament |  everywhere is tho sparklo of innuni  crublo lights in tho faint twilight.  The magic city, the great heart of  the nation's life, with Its churches,  Jinlucos, and theatros, its storied  buildings and holy places, ils miles  of .stonc-hoiirlcd streets, its millions  of living, rejoicing, suffering human  beings, lay boforo her at Inst; but sho  wus too crushed and troubled to heed  what would otherwise have filled her  with' vivid interest. Tho train thundered into tho grim, great, dirty  echoing station, mid tho stimulating  sense of vastness which for a moment touched hor at tho lirst sight of  thc greatest city on earth, faded in  Ihat dreary pluce, the smoko and  grime of which suggested the sunless  prisons of holl, nnd which was largo  without grandeur, and gloomy without majesty. Tho noises wero irritating, the strango cries confused her  tho   bustle  and  hurry  bewildered.  "Oi'/.'/.y with thc unaccustomed motion and smell of smoko and oil, tired and over-wrought, she stood on  the pavement, jostled by hurrying  passengers and thoir luggage, naif-  frightened by tho hoarse shouts of  "Now miss," and "By'r leave thoro  of porters clattering pust her with  laden trucks���������not knowing what to  do. Parents anxiously gathering  their broods about them, grave but  eager business men, fine ladies with  their trains of maids and  footmen, middle-class ladies with  numerous parcels, well-to-do gentlemen followed by serviceable porters,  all sorts of lioople, hurried b.v, claiming luggage, culling cabs, meeting  friends.      Jostled  to boar h'er company after the storm.  "Yours was a long en-gngoment,  Sarah?" she said, with a tentative  wistfulness.  "Matter> o' vifteen year," she replied. **  "All that time!" sighed Jessie's  pure young voice; "but then you  know that hc cared for you,  Sarah?  ".Ulcus you!

Tho Tirst thing is selecting a good  location I would recommend ..igh  grounds and well drained says Mr.  A. J. Hess. I think old ground frco  from forest roots is preferable for  planting apple trees. Tho decaying  roots havo a tendency to induco diseases of tho roots of tho trees nnd  in a short time the troo dies. Tho  land should bo in a high stato of  cultivation capable of producing any  good crop. Tho ground should bo  broken as deep as possible; subsoil-  ing would be Inst tor, enabling tho  roots to penetrate deep in tho  ground, giving the tree a firmer hold  and  doubtless longer life.  Tho first thing is selecting tho  trees. "Doubtless wo havo all at  itome time in life had tho experionce  thnt inferior articles are dour at any  price. I know of nothing to which  that is moro applicable than tho ap-  plo tree.  I prefer yearling trees, both apple  and poach. Tho apple is then a  straight switch free from limbs and  can bo easily token up without mutilating the roots. Sco that your  trees are healthy, free from disease  and straight bodied. A crooked trco  is an eyesore to start with and oft-  times if planted tho bark is liable  to blister at the crook, should tho  crook bo to the southwest from, tho  summer's sun. The wound gradually  spreads until the tree dies. As to  I ho time of planting, circumstances  should largely control us.

Had  not Claude said so? Yet was her  fraii young spirit strong enough to  resolvo not to sin in reality, and  thus incur disgrace in the sight of  Heaven and of her own accusing  soul, those severest, most awful of  judges. Thus she'rushed blindly into exile from all ;that could over  mako life sweet.  But though she had now; crossed  her Rubicon and burned her boats,  she was! still perpetually urged ��������� by  an inward i prompter, to return, to  givo up honor , and duty, soul and  body to him Who was dearer than  all besides,*-whose, words were celestial symphonies, whose''glance was  heaven, to renounce all and cling only to that sheltering embrace; oven  now s'ho had but to write ond word  and be happy, beloved, sheltered for  life.- And he was wanting her!  Poor deserted Claude! How base to  leave him! How could anything  hero or hereafter weigh against his  happiness? What would she not do  for him? Purity!���������what wns that  but another namo lor selfishness?  Hers, yes! but his? no selfishness  there; that thought was ever victorious when her heart was most cruelly wrung. Disgraced in the eyes  of men! How that pain ate into her  heart as she sped through the goldeu  afternoon, with every fibre still quivering freshly with the passion of  yesterday'b meeting; but the disgrace  was hers alone, it could not touch  him: she was glad���������not blaming hint  ���������never considering that he was the  author of it.

Travelling, like the celebrated bishop, third-class because there was no,  fourth, Jessie did not see two, men  travelling by first, the sight of ei iter of whom might have altered her  fate. So she sped on to her doom,  sitting all alone in the bare, un-  cushioiied compartment, boarded ��������� off  like a cattle stall from the other divisions, by a partition too high for  sight but not for sound. She could  hear two men quarrelling in foul  language, a child wuiling, a woman  hushing it, and quite near her seat,  the clink; of hand-cults on a prisoner  travelling to the county jail in  charge of two policemen.

Hc looked at hcr long in silence,  then  shouldering  her   light  box     and  that direction in th'e summer and  will have a tendency to lean the trco  if planted straight. When the orchard is planted with ""yearling apple  trees, as I have previously mentioned, I would decide on thc hieght of  heading the  trees.  Uniformity should be one of our  aims when it can be easily dono in  shaping the tree. Take a measure  and" cut trees back to samo bight,  care being taken to cut near a bud  so wound will heal readily. Should  it be cut some distance from tho  bud, the part above the bud perishes  and is liable to injure the tree. When  the buds have started, go over your  trees   carefully   and rub  off    surplus  sprouts with tho thumb. Caro should  bu takon to so start -limbs ns to  huve tho trco well balanced. I prefer a number of limbs coming out  from trunk of trco to a fork; it  makes a stronger trco  AND BETTER BALANCED.  It is necessary to cut limbs back  for awhilo so as to havo short,  stocky, stout limbs. Sliould the  limbs have a tendency to run down,  cut so ns to havo the: bud abovo.  That will elevate thorn, vice versa.  I prefer low heading for many reasons. Tho limbs aro a protection to  the tree from tho summer's sun and  thc winter's cold, rendering it less  liable to bo shaken by tho winds and  making th'o gathering of fruit mucli  easier. The old proverb "a stitch  in time saves nine" is applicable to  pruning nnd caring for trees. Go  over j-our orchard occasionally in tho  spring and summer nnd rub off nil  surplus sprouts. It will be an ad-  vantago to tho tree, leaving no  wounds to heal. Ono hour's work  thon will be' equal to a day .next  spring.  I think it best "not to trim fruit  spurs too far up the limbs', ns that  brings tho weight itoo much on the  ends of the limbs, causing them to  break. An orchard should be cultivated until it is five years old. I  do not ' think it advisable to cultivate later than the middle, of July.  Too lato cultivation stimulates  growth and early cold weather is  liablo to damage tho tree by. tho  wood not  being matured.  After fivo years of cultivation tho I  trees should have the full benefit of  tho ground, sowing to clover and  cowpcas to maintain thc fertility of  the soil. Quito a profit may bo  made.by running hogs in an orchard,  grazing tho clover and pens, making  the land more fertile and it is an advantage to have faulty fruit, cnten  up,  thus destroying many insects  Manure or fertilizer if used should  bo woll scattered around the tree  Thc fibrous rools_will take up tho  strength^ Should it'be piled around  the tree the fibrous roots will not  leave the tree. I do not think it advisable to-"so\y grass in an orchard.  A tree sod-bound, seldom amounts  to anything. The cultivation of an  orchard,_ospe������".**-nlly plowing i.t, is likely to hill up ai~*und the trco and it  should bo' leveled -4own. Tn plowirug  nn orchard caro should be taken not  "to bark trees or plow too deep. I  think one of tho best tools with'  which to cultivate an orchard is a  cutaway harrow.  tho larger roots with a spado llio  fall previous to taking up. This  causes tho tree to send out nearer  lho trunk n strong growih of line  roots which will bo taken up with  tho tree when it is dug. All aricd  ami dead roots should bc cut back  with a knifo till living tissue is exposed. Whon tho clean-cut, living  ends nro exposed to the moist soil  they quickly callus over and givo. out  new roots.  In liko manner tho rooting. of layers can bo hastened by cutting awny  the bark' on one side and exposing  tho cambium to tho soil so that a  callus is formed. -The tree pruned  will, in a year or so, havo a better  root development thnn if planted un-  prunod. After the tree is set tho  top s'hould bo cut buck proportionately with the root. Tlie lack of cutting bnck tho top of tho free in  transplanting causes the drying out  and death of many trees that might  otherwisu live.  -������-  IW MODEBN BABYLON".  bidding her follow him,'ihe went to  a third-class waiting-room, where he  stopped and told her to wait half an  hour.

WINTERING  CALVES.  Thc best feed wo have ever used for  calves, considering the money value, I  is bright, sweet corn fodder, stored  in tho early fall.���������under shelter, writes  Geo. A. Groom. Wc cut our corn  just as soon as possible after tho  shock on the ear is dry, but while  tho blades are yet green. When it is  cured sufficiently to keep in a crib  it is 'husked and tho fodder tied in  largo bundles with binder twine. This  method of handling facilitates thc  hauling and feeding very materially.  Twenty calves have bcon wintered  almost exclusively on such roughness,  with only enough good mixed hay to  keep up thoir appetites. They consumed about 150 shocks, worth 12J  cents each, and one ton of hay, estimated at $12, making -a total of  S**0.73 worth' of feed. This is equivalent to SI.50 per head for the entire winter, which I consider vcry  cheap. Tho  feeding is done in    a  long,   inclosed     shed     during    snow  storms or rain,  and  tho calves come  _throUg,i_=_\vilh _nice, sIi*g1c_ coats   .  of  hair,  ready to take on  flesh  rapidly,  when turned on grass in April.  Jly keeping tho calves inclosed wo  save about ton "loads of.mnmire,  whicli pays woll for the trouble of  feeding. Many farmers winter their  cattle in the fields. This is a mistake. Not. only from a business  standpoint, but also from a humane  point of view. Farmers, bo considerate and shelter your stock.  "Starvation   in   the   Midst  of London's  Plenty.  The greatness nnd gaiety of London is sadly contrasted by the-squalid misory and starvation of thousands of its inhabitants.  A Home Office return of tlio number of cases in the county of London last year in which a coroner's  jury returned th'o verdict of "death  from starvation" or "death accelerated by privation," gives particulars  of thirty-nine such" cases���������a vory  small total compared with the thousands of struggling creatures who  fight on silently from day to day  against poverty and starvation. The  following aro a few of tlio cases published:  ~ A homeless tramp was found ill on  a seat opposite Temple Gardens, and  taken by th'e polico to Boaryard Infirmary. In spite of every-enre, and  attention he died, five,days later,  from ' apilopsy accelerated by exposure. No application had been mado  by this maiv at any time for parochial relief or admittance tto a workhouse.  A bank clerk, of "Paddington, fifty-  five years of age, was found ill in  the street and taken to Paddington  Infirmary, where 'he died thirty hours  later. Early, in th'o day application  had been mado on his behalf to tlie  relieving officer, wiio issued an urgent  order on tho medical officer, to visit  hira. The man declined tho officer's  offer of medical nid, or admission to  th'e infirmary, and tho landlord subsequently turned him into thc street.  His death" wns duo mainly to self-  neglect nnd want of food.  James Ouston, a Marylobone laborer, wns found lying in St. .John's-  wood-road on a cold and windy  nighit, and was taken to tlie infirmary in a police nmbula.nce. Ho liad  not tasted food for two dnys. He  never rallied, and died the next dny  from syncope accelerated by exposure.  Isaac John Newton, a homeless laborer, sixty-two years old, was found  dying in Squirrlcs-strcet, "Uptlinal-  greon, and was taken to the infirmary, where ho died from syncope and  chronic    alcoholism. A      married  daughter stated at thc inquest tlint  sho had advised him lo go into the  workhouse, but ho replied tliat ho  would rather dio in tlio gutter.  Thomas Nolson, a homeless firewood seller, was found dying in Old-  street, E.C., nn utter wreck. He was  taken to tho infirmary, wliero hu died  of "gangrene-and-destitutions  Jessie Nowson, described as a widow, 33 years old. a homeless Ilowcr-  scllor,  was  found  lying  on   tlie  foot  way of Hn tier-street, Spltalfk-lds, in  a wretched condition. Doctors said  that sho had not come under treatment early enough' to effect a cure.  She wns entirely friendless and nlone:  no ono know anything of hor. She  died in llic infirmary two days after  admission.  One of tlie most distressing cases  recorded is th'o following: "Man unknown, found in a lumber warehouse  at Spita lflelds...

Whon we consider the many good  reasons why nlfnlfa should be' grown  on tho furm, we wonder, why it has  not received more attention. To got  thc best results it should bo cut just  beforo or at tho time that it begins'to exposure and starvation  to blossom, and then it will start  to grow again very readily, and another crop is at hand in a short  lime. For soiling, the patch'can be  cut over four or five Limes during the  summer. By-beginning ut one sido  and cutting what is needed each day,  if it'..taken: four or live weeks to cut  oyer the' patch, by the time the Iast-  bf the first crop is cut, whore the  first is cut there will be another crop  ready to cut again. To avoid having  Home get too ripe at first cutting, the  first should be cut while very young  and green. After the first time over  it will be reaching the proper stugo  when the time that it is needed arrives, As it is relished and eaten  so greedily by a,I kinds of stock, it  can be cut nnd cured as hay, stored  and fed when needed. We do not  know of any crop thnt will furnish so  much good feed in ono season as alfalfa. It Is rich in protein and fed  nlone is worth' as much as other  clover and a moderate amount of  whont bran.  TRANSPLANTING TREES.  Since countless rooUinrs arc lost in  cutting off     largo   roots   in   digging  trees,  it  is  a  good  practica t������    cut  IN THE  WrtONG   PLACK.  A local railway out Wost has " an  unenviable reputation for slowness,  and many jokes aro cracked at its  expense. Not long ago a liumorist  was travelling on this line. Wlion  a tickbt-collector came to examine  the  tickets,   the  Humorist  inquired:���������  "Does this railway company allow  passengers to givo advice if tliey give  it in: a respectful manner?"*  The collector, suspecting fun at His  own expense, replied in gruff tones,  "I suppose it does." ���������  "Well, then, collector," answered  th'o Humorist, *nd he winked at his  fellow-passengers, "it occurred to mo  as we were coming along, that it  would be well' to detach tho cowcatcher from th'o front of .the engine  and fix it on 'to the rear of the  train."  "Vftiy that?" demanded th'e collector.  "Well, you see," explained the  (humorist, "we are not likely to overtake a cow; but what's to prevent  a cow from strolling into th'is compartment and biting a passenger?"  DOINGS OF _S0ME SMS  VAGARIES     OF     COMETS    AND  THE  FIXED  PLANETS.  Many  Things  About  Theso Bodies  Which Astronomers So Not  Understand.  All Europe was in pangs of terror  when in 18152 it wns unnounccd that  liiola's comet would cross tho  Eurlli's puth. Teoplo died of terror,  nnd so serious did the scare bccoiau  thai ix Parish*n professor begged'tlio  Academy of Science to publicly refula  tho assertion.  The comet camo, blu/od uwh'llo in  tho sky nnd vanished. Its period of  revolution round lho sun being just  under seven years, it camo again in  183'J and wa.s duo once moro early  in 18*10. But in that year, instead  of one comet, two appeared! . Th'o  original comet liad divided into two  parts, each' of whicli had a separate  existence, though' tlieir paths woro tho  same.  In 1852, the two cornels again  enmo flying into sight. Th'oir.path  in 1859 was too closo to tlio sun  for telescopic scrutiny, but in 18'IG it  was expected that tliey would bo  plainly visible. ;Uut tho double comet never turned up. Nor has it ever  been seen since.  Another comet, wliich lins-gone  missing, is tliat k'nowiv ns Ilrorson's,  last scon in 1870. lt was'due in  January, 1901, but failed to mako  its appearance.

Th'o fixed, stars aro suns as  big or bigger tlian ours. Yet oven  sucli vast bodies ns these occasionally appear or disappear in a way  whicli puzzles earthly star gazers.  Ono night in 1572 tlio celebrated  astronomer, Tyclio Ilrnhe, was .walking Home from his laboratory wlien*,  happening to look up into tlio sky,  ho was amazed to sec in the constellation of Cassiopeia a" new star. Its  brilliancy was amazing. H surpassed in brightness all the otiier stars,  oven Jupiter at ils brightest. For  three weeks it glowed witli the samo  magnificent lustre and then suddenly  began to decline. At tlio same timo  it changed colors. At first its light ,  was a pure white. Then it turned  yellow like a gas flame. Afterwards  it took tho lu.ddy tono of Mars and  finally faded into a livid Hue, and  less tlian two years Inter it vanished.*  .Again, in 18GG, a new star flashed!  out on thc constellation of thc Crown!  wliero no star Had evor been seen before. It was ot tho second maghitudo .  wlien first seen, but after shining. ' '  brightly for a few days only it struck ---"  work and  ^    ,.  FADED OUT-OF SIGHT. *���������"'  Before it Went out.it did the scienti-. .  fie world a good turn.    By aid of tho    "i  spectroscope  astronomers  found  that  tlTis     star was ��������� partly at least ���������  composed  of the gas hydrogen in ' a  state of the most  tremendous  incandescence.  This fact went far to prove what ,  had long been suspected���������that there  occurs now and then a colliss-ion between a" dark and probnbly.dead star  and some olher celestial body.l Tho  result is a tremendous outburst _ of  Heat, especially at the surface, whore  lies tlie hydrogen atmosphere of tho  star. This supposition explains also  the fading of the light of the now  star. As" tho blaze died down it  would of course lose *ts luminosity.  Sometimes a new star of this kind  takes a long time lo fade out. One  whicK appeared in the Swan in November, 1870, has novor disappeared  though lt was only visible to tho  naked eye for a very fow days. lt  has now become a nebula, or, star  cloud, of dimensions so tiny that '  only the strongest lens can pick it  out.

Another extraordinary star, ^called .  Brira or tho Wonderful, takes "eleven  months to fade from n star of nearly  llio first, magnitude down lo a point  of light invisible lo th'o naked eyo.  Then during a similar period it slowly regains^ ils brilliancy.  Tho most recent of these meteoric  stars is t'ho famous Nova Persoi dis- ,  covered by Dr. Anderson on February 21st, 1901. The performances of  this sudden visitant wero most remarkable and mysterious.

Temples, ��������� lea houses, pagodas and  marble bridges, with no repairs or  paint for forty yours, all falling into  soft colored, picturesque ruin. Immense covered docks, which once contained Imperial house-boats; hundreds of acres of smooth, green turf;  short, thick and smooth as velvet,  such turf ns can be seen in no other  part of China; large oaks two to four  feet in diameter," rising from tliis  clean turf, and as far as the eye  could roach under tKe trees thousands  of doer browsing in perfect unconcern,  the'hills nnd moxmtains covered with  forests, not a few trees planted * for  elTect, but natural forests extending  for-miles.  It was only one little corner of the  (.park I could see in the time I had  allowed me, but one can never forget tlio picture after tlie treeless  plains and mountains and th'e dry,  sun baked soil of the outside world.  I climbed only one hill, and that to  see the famous bronze * temple, a  small temple, but built* entirely of  bronze���������sides, doors, panels, posts,  tiles, framing and windows, fretwork,  all of bronze, built Jn the time of  Chien-Lung. as were most of th'e  temples  and buildings here.  While resting on the terrace in front  of this temple, and drinking in  Chinese tea and tliVj beauties of the scene,  I asked     the 'head     official 'when  tho  temple was built..  "During  the  reign  of  Chien-Lung."  "Did  Chien-Lung build it?"  "OH,  no;  it was a present to     His  Imporial  "Majesty:   Chien-Lung*  from  the German '..Kmpci'or."

Thoro is one notable exception to  the general ruined condition of thc  buildings, and thut is the library established Here by His Imperial Majesty Chien-Lung. It is one large  Chinese building with' a small court  surrounded by a high wall. In tho  building arc many thousands' of valuable Chinese books, with* tlieir covers  of carved wood or������ jndo; each set of  books carefully folded in a yellow silk  napkin embroidered in gold, with the  name of llis.Imperial Majesty marked  in  the  corner.  Tho small court .in front of. th'o  building is ono immense rockery, minature mountains, valleys, caves,  springs and cascades. Tho mountains  are covered with dwarfed trees forced  into fantastic shapes. Th'e open spaces . are filled witli gigantic pines.  When tho main gales of tho compound are opened one is at the entrance of a large cave, from which  comes tho rhythmic sound of falling  Water. Passing into the cave, wHic-h  is well lighted from above, one finds  passages leading to the right and left  nnd to th'o small open space in front  of thc library building. Standing  on the veranda nnd looking back the  whole outside World is lost to sight,  and no sounds nro heard but thoso of  the birds, th'o water and the sough  of th'e wind through the pines*  To tKe right and left of the veranda  stand tho two uiost lifelike bronzes I  have seen in China, two figures of  horses about one-half lifo size, the  pose perfect and every muscle, "cord  and detail done to perfection.  THo sun sot much too early for mo  on that day, and I was obliged to  pass onco moro into tho street's dust  filth and mud Houses, having seen  just enough of tlio beauties of the  park to hope for the timo when I  could pass day after day thero and  do justice to it, at least with my  camera.  Thero aro none of General Ma's or  any other foreign drilled troops in  Jeliol or in tho vicinity. In tho district thoro aro some two thousand  Banner troops, a sort of irregular  militia formation, part of which goes  through the farce* of drilling onco  or twice a month. A fow years ago  tliey wore armed with bows and arrows, and now only have the crudest  of muskets with but little ammunition.  , Willi tlio exception of tlio soldiers  at Ku-Poi-Kou and Shi-Shn, the only  regulars between Pekin and, Ping-  Chuan-Chou aro General Ma's post  riders and road guard, four every  thirteen  miles.  From Pokin to Jeliol I travelled  without an escort, but at-Jcihol I  found that orders liad been sent from  the Wai-Wu-Pu that I should from  thoro on be furnished with nn armed  escort, botli civil and military; that  I-should-be allowed to-go where I  chose within tho limits of-my passport,' but ��������� .that I must "always. Have  an escort which would be Held responsiblefor my. safety and . for -the  aeconimodntions; I had on" tlio road."  Two days after these instructions  in regard to myself had been received  there was sent a general'order to the  military lieutenant governor to the  elTect that all foreigners travelling in  Mongolia must have tlieir passports  inspected by each magistrate, and in  proper form must bo provided with  an escort. If anything was lacking  in tlio passport tlio foreigner was to  bo stopped at onco and turned back  under guard.  SAFETY OF FOREIGNERS.   '  These instructions wero wired to  nil the magistrates. This regulation  is most excellent, as the Chinese can  keep, check on all foreigners and know  the object of their travels. Also ;it  makes the Chinese government responsible for the safety of the foreigners,, and prevents: tho tramping  through tho country of tho numerous  undesirable adventurers who always  hang  on the outskirts of war.  From JcKol to Ping-Chunn-Chou tlio  rood in winter would bo vory good,  but owing to the heavy rains it is  now  almost:. impassable: in  places.  Tho distance is sixty miles, and  the road crosses eight small divides.  None of tlio passes are of any great  Height, and moderately loaded carts  need no extra mules to take tliem  ovor. Thero has been too much rain  this season and in many places thc  crops have been washed out. This  condition grows worse as we go East.  The' condition of the towns and: hamlets is pathetic.  Not a sign of -truffle on the rood  and buildings and inns "deserted ruins.  Tho" natives along t'nc road from Jehol to Chao-Yang-Fu aro by far the  most miserable in appearance of any  I have seen in China. The spirit Has  gono out of tliem���������almost the desire  to live. Thoy look less like human  beings than animals, and not intelligent animals at that. What I say  here applies to tho Chinese in the  country and small hamlets. There  are no Mongols, and tho town and  city Chinese look less miserable and  a trifle more intelligent.  The country people have dull eyes,  a dirty, unhealthy complexion, bent  and* twisted forms, with slow, shuffling gait.* When struck by the soldiers they slink slowly out of the  road; without even turning the Head.  The continual striving for some-,  thing wherewith to fill their bellies  is t-hoir strongest instinct. -There  is no famine in the land, but between the -' robbers 'on the .ono;..', side  and thc civil' and military forces bn  th'e .other, '*tHe people - are ' always  Hungry. .'���������-",  lETOYQBE HAS A DOUBLE  SOME STRANGE AND A3TOSIN0  DRAMAS.  Instances   Where Doubling  on the  Part of Nature Might Have  Been Serious.  FAVOR THE LANCE.  Now  Finding Many   Champions in   [__   the  Army.  General French' and many other  well-known cavalry officers are said  to be strongly in favor of its restoration, and tlie recent account of  fighting in wliich Japanese cavalry  wero met by Cossacks armed with  lances has given nn impetus to the  agitation. Lord Roberts is said to  be nguinst the lnnce, but, according  to cavalry officers, that is because ho  is not a cavalry officer.  Colonel C. 13. Swnine, who lately  commanded tho llth Hussars, and  proviously spent some years in a  luncer r.eglmcnt, interviewed recently,  strongly urgod the claims of tho  lance,  "Th'o account published in the Russian journal Viva," hu said, "should  bo road by overy officer. It states  that the Japanese did hot know How  to deal with th'o lances, and they  were routed, one, squadron" being annihilated.  "It is all very well to say that on  some occasions llic lanco has been  beaten by,the sword in the sword vs.  lance competition nt the Military  Tournaments. There is a great difference between two single men hand-  to-hand at tlio Agricultural Hall and  n charge of cavalry where real war  is going on.  "Th'c Zulus still remember the  great cliurgo of the 17th Lancers that  did such execution among them. They  speak with bated breath of the men  with tlio 'big assegais.'  "Th'o great advantage of th'e lanco  ovor th'o sword is that th'c lancer  can reach" his opponent first, but tho  moral effect of a row of lance points  upon an enemy is so marked that the  abolition of tbe lanco would be a  fatal mistake."-   + -  The moro saintly a man trios to  appear the less ho seems to enjoy life.  "My dear doctor, you do so remin'rj  me of Lord Kitchener."  "But I am Lord Kitchener,"-  sauvely replied tlie great soldier.  This anwsing misunderstanding occurred at a fashionable garden-party.  Ono of the lady guests was searching  for n doctor friend of hers, who bore  a striking resemblance to Lord Kitchener, and, being unaware that tho  eminent soldier wns a guest, mistook  him for  her  friend.  "Everyone has a double," is an  axiom that is being substantiated  every day, nnd no ono knows when  and where he or she will meet the  counterpart  of him or herself.  This curious duplication on tho  part of Nature hns been tho cause ol  innumerable experiences���������exciting,  amusing and occasionally disconcerting. That of Adolf Beck is a recent  case in point. This man actually  served five years' penal servitude, and  was convicted for another offence,  whicli had been committed by another man who was a complete  stranger to him.  A few years ago an absconding  clerk was "wanted" for'forgery. A  minute description, of the. man wa������ *  circulated, and a vigorous hunt Was  made for Him. Early ono evening a  telegram was . received from Southampton. -��������� -  " smit'hson'Arrested i"  The police chuckled, and were complimenting themselves upon tlieir fortune when another telegrgm came to  hand from Liverpool, also announc  ing the arrest of the forger. The police were in a quandary. There waa  no alternative but to sec the two  men together. This was done, but  even then a difiiculty was experienced  in identifying the criminal, as the  men  were as alike as two peas.  A firm of solicitors were in: quest  of a young lady who was tKe Heiress  to a large fortune. As her whereabouts was unknown, advertisements,  together with her portrait, were published. Two ladies who saw the portraits duly presented themselves to  the solicitors. Here was a dilcmna.  The two claimants were identical in  Height; build, nnd other characteristics;1 and, to make:the matter moro  complex, friends and relatives: could  not positively identify the rightful  person.; Elaborate research as to .tho  past lives of .tho two women' had to  bo carried out,- and it was several  months.before', the claim was>settled.  There recently died i'n London a  gentleman who was. the exact counterpart of his Majesty tlie. King. And  this striking likeness proved his undoing and ultimate ruin. Wherever.  He went lie was mistaken for liis Majesty. This pleased his vanity to  such an extent that he carefully followed tlio King's pastimes, and sedulously  COPIED HIS STYLES OF DRESS.  This procedure proved rather expensive, arid : the King's, double*, -finally  retired into oblivion, and died a  pauper.-  This indiscriminate doubling on th'o  part of Nature once led to a very  dramatic episode. Among the .unfortunate victims in. n. railway disaster  was a man who was identified as the  sole heir to considerable property.  When His death' -liad been legally and  duly testified, the estate was divided  among. the deceased's relatives.  'A**'few months later; the dead man  suddenly reappeared among the mariy  wiio were enjoying tbe Handsome  legacies of their thoughtful relative.  Naturally, such a resurrection* caused  a flutter of excitement in the comfortable dovecots. Even those who  knew tKe deceased": manVmost intimately cou,Id' hardly believe their  eyes. The -resemblance was most  striking, even to th'c minutest detail. -JT.he mannerisms were.- similar..,  ���������even to' a slight lisp and impedi���������.  ment in the speech.  But the' heirs were not disposed to  surrender th'eir newly acquired wealth  without demur, although dozens. *..of  acquaintances of-thc deceased'' coulil  not'pledge their_word that the claimant was not tlie dead man. When,  however; the- double-was_tlireatencd���������  with' a lawsuit, realizing that !ho  could never withstand the fire of  cross-examination, he put an end to  His pretensions���������und his own life as  Well.   *   UNDER HER THUMB.   -  "No, I never Havo a bit of trouble wilh my husband," remarked tho  frail little woman with tho intelligent face. "In fact, I have him right  under  my  thumb."  "You don't look vcry strong,"  doubtfully commented the engaged  girl.  "You mistake me, my dear. Tt'a  a  mental,   not  physical,   subjection."  ."Would  you'   mind   telling  mc Just  how "  Not n bit! Always glad to help  anyone steer clear of the rocks. First  of all you must know that a ��������� man  in love is ��������� the biggest sort of fool,  and says things thnt make -him almost wild when he hears them in after life. I realized''it, and from the  very beginning of our courtship I  kept a phonograph in th'c room, and  every speech lie: made was duly recorded. Now, whenever my husband  gets a little bit obstreperous, I just;  turn out a record or so. Heavens!  how hc does rave; but ho car/t'deny  it. They always will, though, if you  don't have proof positive."  "Thank yoii," gratefully', murmured  the engaged girl. "I'll get a phonograph' this  very  day."  Doctor���������"Mm. Brown has sent for  me to sec Her boy, and T must go  at once." Wife���������"What is the matter with' the boy?" Doctor���������"I don'b  know; but Mrs. Brown lias a book on  'What to do Before tlie Doctor  Comes," and I must hurry up beforo  she docs it or the boy w'll be dead."

Seriously Injured Coasting*.
/ .Phoenix, Nov. 20.���With iho first
considerable fall of snow here, a serious accident has occurred in Phoenix
from coasting on the steep city streets
that will probably ho a warning for
some time to come, two young liien
being laid up in the hospital with
broken bones ns a result,
A. li. II. Chirk nnd 15d. Mosior, with
seven others were coasting on the
Kf.eephill on First streel, ii,M per cent
grade, with two .street crossings, when
tlie. heavy bub .swerved and struck
some heavy timbers on one side of the
street throwing of? all the riders,
crushing Clark's left thigh almost to
a jelly, and breaking Mosier'.*** thigh
also. The men were quickly taken to
j j lhe hospilal, where au operation was
j j performed" on Clark, nnd he may
escape Iiy being laid up for several
inoril.li.s.
Mr. Clark, father of the young lad
A. IC. II. Chirk, left the city,on .Saturday morning for Phoenix to attend at
the bedside of his son. ���
