Sc, late of  London, England, lint who is now a.  resident of tliis city, returned on Monday evening from 11 trip to the Fish  River Mining District. During his  visit, to the camp. Mr. Gooding spent  some lime on tho famous Beatrice  mines, in company with Mr. F. F.  Fulmor, one of the owners of the pioperty, and also ou the Silver Dollar  properly, owned hy thelilwood Tin-  workers Gold Mining Co. Being  asked hy the Herald to express liis  opinion of the Beatrice mines anil the  camp generally, Mr. Gooding said;  "I had 11 splendid trip and wus much  pleased with ths appearance of the  district generally. It is true I left  here for the express purpose of looking over tlio Beatrice Mines, of which  1 have heard a good deal since my  arrival here1, antl to say that I found  everything as it, was represented is  quiet true. The Beatrice is one of the  hest silver lead properties I liave  visited, during my five years of inspection of silver lead mines in different parts of the world. Then the  Beatrice is more than a silver lead  mine, it is a gold mine. I visited tho  dilferent leads on the property and in  the walls of the tunnels 1 found that  the lirst tunnel had cross cut a splendid  free milling quartz lead, which I inspected and followed the course of the  same over the surface and from  which I have taken some splendid  'sample*.. Tliere is no doubt in tuy  mind but that the same lead of gold*  oie outcropping on the Beatrice is thc  A Pretty Wedding.  On Wednesday evening the 23rd ult.  the home of Mr. G. Hedstroin was thc  scene of an  intorestii-g event  in lhe  marriage, of Mr.  John Brill to Elizabeth Miller,  sister of Mrs. lledstriim.  Some 2S couple and friends assembled  to   witness   tho   happy   event.     The  bride   neatly   dressed   in   bluu ladies  cloth trimmed  with cream satin, was  assisted  by   Miss Esse Hamilton, in a  dress of white lawn, and  Capt. Lloyd  in   her simple   hut  suggestive serge.  Tlie   groom   wiis   supported   by   Mv.  James Beazelynnd   ilr. David Brill,  brother of tin.' groom.   The. marriage  ceremonv was performed by the Rev.  XV.   0.   Calder.     The  bride was (he  recipient   of  it   number  of  valuable  presents.     About 10 o'clock the company   was   invited     to   supper    and  gathered   around    tables   well   laden  with   good   things,   and   such  as did  great  credit to the   hostess.    Everything possible  was done for the comfort aud pleasure of tho guesLs and to  do honor to the young* couple.   At the  conclusion of the supper the health of  the  bride and groom was pioposed by  Rev. Mr. Calder and' joined in by the  compivtiy.   After supper the company  enjoyed an  hour or two in music and  social pleasure scporating about midnight.

HUME & (0, li  same one that tho Eva Mines Ltil,,.are  working ou, in their property on.Lex**  ington mountain " and I am ������������������ credibly?  'informed tliat the' leads eau be' traced  across country from one property to  tlie other, aud when I made the remark  that tho Beatrice would make a big  gold mine, as well as it is now known  as' the richest among the best mines  iu'high grade silver lead ore. I do so  iii absolute belief of what my examination has proven to my mind during  my visit there last week.  The work of development that has  been in progress for some time is well  dono and co the very best advantage  to the property. There is piactically  no dead work and the tunnels are  running with ore bodies, whicli to my  mind is good mining. The management has been of the best, as is evident by the systematic manner in which'  the property has been developed. I  was shown the smelter returns from  a shipment of 117,50S lbs., net weight,  which realized tho handsome return  of $0,070.10 at tlie smeller. The Beatrice is a splendid tunneling proposition  and as I said befoie, the woiking of  tho property by the tunnel system  undertaking, keeps the ore bodies in  sight as^the_works proceeds.  On the dump at the Beatrice, there  is a large body of good grade ore. of  sufficient valuo to pay the entire cost  of the construction of a mill for the  reduction of the lower grade ore and  at the same time will pay a handsome  profit. I am told that the mill will in  all likehood be, under construction  next year.  I brought down with me some  .sumpies of the galena ore, as well us  samples from the gold quartz loads,  and from the carbonates. I will have  them assayed at Vancouver and in a  few days will have the returns from  there. The carbonates have heen  assayed by the owners, and Mr. Fulmer showed me returns of 201 oz. of  silver to the ton. Yes, I believe the  Beatrice mines are making towards a  splendid dividend paying property  and in the very near futuie will be  well considered with the big mines of  the continent.  Mr. B. W. Brock, M. A., of the  Geological Survey Department, in nis  report to the Department of the Interior in 1903, in speaking of the geology  of the .Lardeau district, makes a very  favorable comment on the Beatrice  property, which he visited during his  work for the department in the  district.  I also visited the Silver Dollar properly, and was well pleased with lhe  work I saw done and the appearance  of things generally on this gioup."  House For Sale.

Cunning    Indians     Discovered  Crime and Reported to Police  ���������:Charred   Bones ' and   Gold  ��������� Teeth Found among Ashes.   .'-,,.    \--e 1       .-* - _,-.*���������>_'*��������� ,  Winnipeg,*' Dec.--u'.'���������"VVitliin 500  miles of the 'Arctic, circle and as far  from civilization, a couple of months  ago "an American gold seeker 'committed a brutal and cold-blooded  crime, murdering his only companion  in the wilderness. _ The two men had  gone into the region in Northwestern  Canada 'about Slave iLake, known to  possess fabulous deposits of gold and  mineral. They made the acquaintance  of Indians and had many friendly  pow-wows. One night the Indians  who camped near them heard a shot.  The next day'they visited the Americans' camp and found .the remains of  an extraordinarily laige fire. With  native cunning thej" found that only  one man had left camp and grew  suspicious, but could find no trace  whatever of the spcond. Thoy soon  reported the case to an isolated police  fort. Investigation in the ashes  of the fire found a couple of charred  bones and gold-filled teeth of the  missing man. The Indians had called  him ''Man with gold in his mouth."  The other man was followed up and  overtaken on the fringe of civilization,  .arr_e.->.ted__on_ a ti limped up charge of  liquor smuggling, and later charged  with .nurdcr. Since the latter charge  he refuses to talk or even give his  mime. The police have found out bis  name, but will not disclose it. He  vvill be tried shortly for the alleged  offence. ���������'    ;  Christmas Presents.

The ice sheet  will be 350 feet long and 125 feet wide.  A comfortable building for the accommodation of patrons is being erected.

Season-tickets  will be offered for sale shortly at $4  for gentlemen, and $2.50 for ladies,  The   Watson   St cck   Company  The abovo named company, who  have just completed a phenomenal  run of six months in Vancouver,  opened a week's engagement at the  Revelstoke Opera House on .Monday  evening in' that great mining play,*  '���������Jim', the Westerner. Mr. Watson  appeared iu thc title role and cleverly  depicted th'e generous, open-hearted  miner who slicks "to his * partner  ''through thick andj.hm." Mr. -Harry  Pollard, as Andrew Burkopa sh'rewcl  speculator, niade a first class villian.  The comedy" parts were well taken  care of by John J. Williams and Miss  Aline Wallace, as Mr. and Mrs. Simon  Dean, lt would be hard to find Mr.  Williams'equal as-a" comedian. He  kept the audience in convulsions of  laughter. Miss Ethel Roberts, as  Mary Lawton, was much admired.  Miss Roberts is a graceful and accomplished actress with a peculiarly  attractive style and charm of manner  which at once made her a favorite  with the audience. The remaining  members of the company gave excellent support.  On Tuesday night the great Russian  war drama "Michael Strogofl'" was tho  attraction. The principal roles were  ta'*en by Ilaydon StevetiMin, "Michael  Sliogolf"; Harry Pol'ard, "Ivan Ogar-  i(l','' and Miss Ethel Huberts as "N'acsia  Teoilor." In the comedy 1 ole of an  English war correspondent Johnny  "Wil liains iii.nle a ureal hit, being ably  assiaied by .Mr. W.i.son, a repres-enta-  tiie ot lhe American pie-s. Mins  Marie Thompson, a Gypsy _woinan,  and Miss Wallace ns "Marl'u Strogoll' "  were also good. The play is a powerful ono necessitating great dramatic  talent, and it suffered nothing at lhc  hands of the Watson Stock Company,  each member appearing lo the best  "advantage". '  Lait night "The Parish Priest" wa.s  presented, a comedy drama in which  the light and shade are beautifully  intermingled, and the simple -'story  was told with a charm Ihat wound  itself about the hearts o[ the audience  and left a deep impression there.  A sterling lines of specialties are  given between the acts, which keeps  the audience in first class humor, thus  avoiding the long . and tedious wails.  Au.icing the specialties, of which there  is an entire change each night, arc  comedy monologues and parodies by  J. ,T. Williams; character songs by  Miss Adelaide Keith, who possesses a  lyric contralto voice of a very preLty  quality. True Boardman, baritone,  in the latest .popular negro melodies,  and Tracy McDermot, tenor, in class!-,  cab ballads. One of the most interesting features is the illustrated songs,  among which were "Soldiers of tho  King,"For Sale, a Baby," and "My  Mother was a Northern Girl." The  performances throughout aro clean  and wholesome and good lessons may  be drawn from the stories presented  each ovening. With each performance the company grows in favor with  the Revelstoke public, although the  patronage is not as good as the merits  of the company deserve. Mr. Watson  has spared no pains to get together a  first class company, four members of  wliich have been "starred," Miss Ethel  Roberts, Mr. Watson, Mr. Hayden  Stevenson, and Mr. John J; Williams,  the last named was the original  "Peck's Bad Boy," starring for 15  years in that role.  To-night that, funniest of funny  comedies, "The Man from Mexico,"  will be presented. It is full of tunny  situations and is a distinct contrast  with the two preceding plays "Michael  Strogoff" and "The Parish Priest,"  giving a splendid opportunity to. the  company to display their versatility.  Among the specialties to-night will be  an illustrated song by Mr. Tracy McDermot, whose singing during the  past   three nights has been so much  A dinner with  these accessories  LIVERY  Ts almost as important to the successful Grocery as the quality  of the goods il sells.

I  ^^^w-w-^^^^^^���������w--^~^'^-M--i������������������I-*I���������  It was undoubtotlly galling. Tom  ralmcr sat in a corner of tlio bur  of the Green Dragon, moodily nursing  his wrath, and gazing with exaggerated worn at Miss Ann Tompkins,  She lounged over tlie counter nnd  shook her curls nt Anthony Dean.  Two months ago the curls had been  shaken at hiin. It was more tlian  palling; it was wormwood to watch  her  now.  Two months ago there had been no  Anthony Dean in Sluntborough, and  life had boen pleasant to Tom. Two  monuhs ago one blissful afternoon he  had boen invited to tea in the back  parlor, and Mrs. Tompkins liad hinted that when Ann was married she  would give ovcr the conduct of the  inn to lier son-in-law, antl gracefully  retire. Ann had smiled nnd blushed,  and put three lumps of sugar in his  tea in 'her confusion; and Tom had  gono home nnd asked his elder brother what h'e would give him for his  share in their village grocery store.  Then Anthony "Dean -had como to  .Slumborough, and Miss Ann, fickle  as her sex is, had thrown Tom into  despair by her utter neglect of him.  Anthony Dean travelled. There was  ��������� cause for mystery in that. In tho  drapery,  lie said.,  "I'm going on a journey," Anthony  said, loudly and pompously, fingering  a pink-spotted tie. Tom sniffed audibly.  "There are bothers who can go a  journey,"  lie  commented.  "As who?" demanded Anthony,  staring, not at Tom, but at th'o array of pewter pots, hung upon nails,  winking back at the oil-lamps.  "I name no names," said Tom,  oppressively. "But somo can go  farther nor others," he added, gloomily,- "and no wonder, considering, tlio  .treatment folks 'as to put up witli.'!  "I wonder at your taking notice of  people, Mr. Dean," said Miss Ann.  "Will you bc long away?"-  "Two month's," said Mr. Dean. "It  will s*ecm like a haze until I return,"  hc added,  sentimentally.  Tom said "Ho!" very loudly.  "What    wonderful    things   manners  is!"  said Miss Ann,  sarcastically.  There was no withstanding this.  Tom rose and made a tragic exit,  marred by the urgency of'the swing  0 door, which", escaping from his hand,  tipped his straw hat upon the saw-  <1 listed floor. Groping for it, lie  heard a light titter and a loud guffaw.     It hurt liim.  A man followed Him out. He had  been intently listening to tlio conversation from behind tlie ambush of a  pewter pot. He was a stranger to  the village. He liad th'e alert' appearance of a man wiio lived by  hazards,  generally losing hazards.  "I gather, sir," lie said, "that you  are contemplating a journey."  Tom -halted, looked at th'c man,  said gloomily, "I am," and continued h'is way up the village main  street. Th'e man paced genially at  hi.s side.  "Going far?" the stranger persisted.  "Mebbe," said Tom; then added,  reflectively, "Mebbe not." Then, in  a sudden burst of confidence, "Jt depends."  "Ah, yes; quite true. Excuse mc."  He pulled out the stump end of a  cigar, lit it, and smoked noisily.  "J-'act is, I'm a stranger. I don't  know you���������you don't know me. But  I heard enough' to-night to find my  heart going out in sympathy to  you."  "Ho!" said Tom.  "You have been treated badly."  "I have���������cruel,' 'Tom sighed.'heavily. " 'Ere. mister," h'e said, suddenly, the desire for sympathy breaking down his reserve, "wliat "'ud you  call it if you were, so to say, closo  to 'appiness and 'ad it stolen from  you by a brown billycock 'at, a black  tailed    coat,   and     a  tie  with     pink  _spot s?" = -      "I  should  call   it,"  said   the stranger,   pondering  deeply,   "cruel   liard."  "You've  'it  It, mister.     It is cruel  'anl."  "And  you  arc goir.g away?"  "Yes,"  said  Tom,  gloomily.     "I've  'ad enouirli of it."  "Far?"'  "As far a.s the Thames." Tom  grew tragic���������tlie more so tliat he had  no intention of putting his words into effect. "My life's spoili.il by a  brown billycock hi and hetcctras. I  can't call it a man to come and  F-nenk afore me like that."  The stranger slopped and confronted Torn.  "1 guessed as much. When my  licart went out in sympathy to you,  I  said  to  myself,   'There's a  promis-  gifls," said Tom. "Shall wc say  two pounds os a token of liestcem  and Happreciation?"  "Wo will say two ���������pfC.nds!'*- said  tlie stranger,   enthusiastically..  Tlio next day Tom and the stranger were in London. At the Hammersmith Broadway tho stranger  stopped.  "Ho slioiilrT be licro in a. few minutes," suid tlie stranger. "lie moves  from one public-house to another. I  will point liim out, and then���������if you  sliould liappcn to make it fifty shillings, Mr. "Palmer, you would never  regret it. A good action is always  a comforting thing to look back upon."  "A bargain's a bargain." Tom answered, unsympathetic-lily. "I'm a  grocer and 1  knows."  "I merely suggested it," tlio stranger said.    "Ah,  there lie is!"  Tom looked up, nnd liis mouth opened wide in absolute astonishment.  "As like a pea is to a pea!" lie  snid.     The stranger  smiled.  "I remarked tlie wonderful resemblance wlien T first entered t'he Green  Dragon. Might bo tlie snme man.  That concludes my part of the liar-  gain, and tliat���������ali, thanks." The  stranger dived down a narrow street  towards the river. Tom remained  staring in amazement at tlie vendor  of bootlaces  approaching  him.  Except that ho was dirty, ragged,  and unshaven, he might liave been  the twin brother of Anthony Dean.  Except that liis mouth was weak and  liis eyes suggested gin,' ho might havo  been Anthony Dean Himself.  He camo shuffling along until h'is  wandering eye caught Tom staring at  liim.  " 'Ullo, capting!" he cried, impulsively, adopting a facetious manner.;  "studyin' beauty in 'Amniersmith?  Think you'll  know mc agine?"-  "Can I 'avo a word with you;?"  Tom asked.  "Well, I ain't got many engigc-  ments this mornin'. Fact is, cap-  ting," lie added, confidentially, "Joey  Chamberlain is gone awye, an'  they've shut up Buckin'am Pawlace,  so I've got more time. Yuss, yer  can 'ave a word. D'jer want h'any-  think in roy line?" he added, dangling th'o bootlaces. "Wot d'jer  want?"  I wants you.''  Ho l'i The request evidently staggered Him. " 'Olesalc border. Look  'ere, capting," with' a sudden suspicion, "if it's tracks I sells 'cm for  wislo pi pei'; if it's the Harmy, I've  been rescued once this week, an' my  'ealtli won't stand  no  more."

"Wot do you tliink?" demanded Mr.  Hawkins.  Hy a curious coincidence, in the afternoon Miss Ann Tompkins and lier  mot-her drove ovcr to Budbury Fair  from Slumborough in Mr. Erdale's  trap. Mr. Tom Palmer, marking tho  nrrival from a side street lost tlie  anxious expression that had been gradually clouding his faro.  He' watched Miss Ann Tompkins  mid her mother, but kej.it modestly in  the background. They had alighted,  an'd were engaged in tlie contemplation of a small stand on whicli dazzling jewels in rings were displayed  for sale, varying in iirice from sixpence  to eiglitpeiicc.  "I don't 'old with' nuthin' but di-  ininds, Haiin." snid Mrs. Tompkins.  "Tliey set ho(T tlie 'and so. 'Ullo!  wliat's this?" slie broke off, catching  sight of tlie slowly moving crowd.  "One of those nerebneks goin' to  jireform!   '   Conic on,  Ilium!"  Making excellent use of lier umbrella, the old lady liad forced a way  for herself and hcr daughter into the  fourl'h row, when a barman deposited  a drunken man on the pavement and  returned to attend to other of hi**,,  customers.  Mr. Hawkins sat blinking his eyes  nnd flourishing a block cigar in weak  and undecided circles.  "Ma!" cried Miss Tompkins, suddenly, "come away! It's Mr. Dean!"  ^.Someone cried out that a policeman  was coming���������tlio effort of a vivid imagination���������and then Mr. Palmer broke  tlirough tlie crowd and went up to  the amiably-smiling Mr.  Hawkins.  Mr. Hawkins hailed him with enthusiasm*.  "Glorious dye, Mislh'ur Palmer!" lic  said. Then lie suddenly grow grave.  "Tike a frion���������frien'ly warnin' an'  go 'ome.

Someone said "Shame!" and Miss  Tompkins made frantic but ineffectual attempts to break through tlie  crowd and get away.  Mr. Tom Palmer roso to the occasion.  "I know this man," 'he said, clearly addressing the crowd. "Let me  take him nway."  "Friend of you,rs?" nsked one of  tlie bystanders.  "Not���������not exae'ly friend," answered  Mr. Palmer, "but 'e's dear to one I  would  spare."  Helping tlie limp Mr. Hawkins to  rise. Tom piloted him as well as ho  could  down  a side street.  Safely in the train tliat evening,  Tom slapped his leg exultantly and  then chuckled audibly.  "Hit's cost me a sight o' money,"  Tom reflected, philosophically, "but  a funeral would 'ave come to moro.  A fellow can't be buried in a respectable way tliat does 'iin credit  under eight pounds."  Two months later tlie door of the  Green Dragon swung open to .admit  Anthony Dean. Ho carried a small  cardboard box ostentatiously in his  hand.  "Good evenin', Miss Hann," he  said, cheerfully.  Miss Ann looked at him as though  he were transparent. Tom. who had  been lounging across the counter with  a sentimental smile, which' fulfilled  tlie purpose of conversation and was  by no 'means so exhausting to the  brain, turned nnd regarded him sadly  even reproachfully.  Anthony Dean paused and stared at  them.  'Sotnebodv bcon  'a\in'  a funeral?"  on'  I'm    sorry    for    you,   but   you  shouldn't   ;avc dono it."  "Dono it! Done what? I tell you  it's all a lie! Never was in Budbury  but onee,  ten years ago."  " 'Umbug!"  said Miss Ann.  The door swung open again, and a  hoarse voice called through it.  "Bootllces, miss?" it said.  Tom started and paled.  "I'll jes look in an' see your mother," lie snid hurried to Ann, lifting  tlie counter-flap.  "And leave mc unprotected?" slie  answered "snilllng. Tlien slie cried  out, "Shut that door! We don't  want no bootlaces!"  "Orhlght, miss," answered tlio  voice. Tom kept his head down nnd  studied the counter. The door closed, and then the voice spoko again,  inside this time.  "Bootliecs, penny a pair!" it cried.  "Good 'eavens!" cried Miss Ann;  and "Well, I'm blowcd!" said Anthony Dean, simultaneously. In tho  bnr-parlor stood a man remarkably  like Antliony.  "Wull ,my stars!" criod Mr. Hawkins, catching sight of Tom. "My  gardin liangel!

Place tho  balls a littlo 'distance apart on a  floured pan and bake ten or lifteen  minutes in a moderate oven. They  will  look like macaroons.  Almond Filling for Layer Coke.���������  One cup ot sour cream, heated to  the boiling point, into which stir  three teaspoonfuls of cornstarch, the  yolks of threo eggs, beaten with one  cup of sugar, tho whites beaten to a  stiff froth, and add last a cup. of  almonds, artcr thoy are shelled.  Blanch the nuts, roll fine, and then  return tlie mixture to the fire and  cook till thick. This is a rich and  delicious filling for a layer cake.  Chicken a Salad.���������Ono well boiled  chicken; remove the skin and fat and  cut in dice; two teaspoonfuls ol celery cut in dice. Put two teacupfuls  of creani into a saucepan, let it  come to a boil, stir in a tablespoonful of mixed mustard, two heaped  teaspoonfuls of butter, vinegar, salt  and cayenne to taste, and last, th'e  well beaten yolks of four oggs. Stir  until it becomes like thick boiled custard; then take from tho firo, set  tho saucepan in cold water and stir  till it cools to keep it from curdling.  Toss the chicken and celery together  and mix carefully with the dressing.  A Good Pot Roast.���������Havo thc butcher extract the bono from the rump  roast and take a'few* .stitches . to  keep tho J>iece in shape. Place in  mi iron pot with a tight cover. Put  in with it two small onions with  two cloves stuck in each, a pod of  red ���������pepper, ' two carrots, salt, and a  little allspice. Pour enough boiling  water over the beef to nearly cover  it. Let il come to a hard boil, then  set the pot where it will just simmer  for six hours. Plnce tho beef out  on a hot dish, strain the gravy, and  take off every particle of grease.  Have ready one-half teaspoonful of  sugar browned in a saucepan, pour  the gravy, over it, and thicken with  a little flour. "When cooked pour  over the beef. Cut up the carrots  and arrange around tho meat. A  better pot roast could hardly, be  cooked.  An Easy Omelet���������This is made in  an uncovered casserole, the sort one  buys for twenty cents at Italian  groceries in any large city. Beat the  yolks of the eggs until they arc light  in color and quite stilt. Beat tho  whites stiffly. Add to the yolks  grated cheese, chopped mushrooms,  or whatever variation of tho omelet  is required. Add salt and liopjicr, a  cupful more or loss, of milk, ��������� very  gradually, and fold in the whites of  the eggs". Turn into the buttered  casserole, and bako in a moderate  oven. These little shallow casseroles, which are to be found in several sizes, are ratlier fragile affairs,  glazed, on the inside only, and soft-  baked clay on tho outside. They  have a short handle, like the old-  time porringer, and are altogether  very*- pretty dishes. For a dish of  baked macaroni, baked beans, soft  corn bread or any vegetable au gra-  tin    they are recommended.  A Fine Flavoring.���������Orange rinds  in theii- fresh state make a fine flavoring. A good extract made without alcohol is prepared by boiling  thc yellow rind of a Mediterranean or  a seedless California orange with  enough water to cover it, and  enough sugar to make a thin syrup.  Every particle of bitter inner white  skin'of thc rind should bc peeled off  and only the juicy yellow part used.

To get th'o full flavor of the peas,  beans, etc., that go to make up a  genuine vegetable soup, do not dissipate their strength by boiling in  water and then draining' oil, but use  simply what will barely cover thcm,  adding from time to time to rcjilaco  the waste by evaporation soui> from  th'o soup pot, which should bo kept  simmering conveniently near.

Most of the organ grinders are simply lazy,. and somo aro worse. The  Italian lias many strings to his bow.  Somo of them are only grinding with  a hired organ while their ice creams  aro cooling or the asphalt which they]  lay is hardening. In the winter they  turn to chestnut and potato roasting and  the organ.

Amusing   Result   of the Impulsive  Promise  of  a  Politician.  A laughable story was circulated  during tlio administration of tho old  Duko of Newcastle and retailed to  tlio jiublic in various forms. This  nobleman, with many good points,  was remarkable for being profuse of  his promises on ull occasions, and  valued Himself particularly on being  able to anticipate tho words or the  wonts of thc various persons who at  tended his levees, beforu tliey uttered  a word. This sometimes led him in  .to ridiculous embarrassments; aud  it was this pronencss to lavish prom  ises whicli gavo occusion for the foi  lowing anecdote:  At tlio election of a certain borough in Cornwall, wliero tho opposite  interests were almost equally poised,  a single vote was of tho highest importance. This object tlie duke, by  well ajiplied argument and personal  niiplication, nt length attained; and  tlio gentleman lie recommended gained  the election. In the warmth of gratitude, liis grace jioured forth acknowledgements and promises without ceasing on tho fortunate possessor of the casting vote; called him  the bost and dearest friend; protested  that ho should consider himself as  forever indebted to him; and tliat lie  would serve him by night or by day.  The Cornish voter, who was an  honest fellow, and would not liave  thought Himself entitled to any reward, but for such a torrent of acknowledgments, thanked tho duko for  His kindness and told -him the supervisor of excise was old and infirm, if  ho would have the goodness to recommend His son-in-law to tlie coip-  missioners, in case of tlie old man's  death, Ho should think himself and  liis family bound to render his grace  eyery assistance  in thoir  power,  ON ANY FUTURE OCCASION.  "My dear friend, why do you ask  for such a trifling employment?" exclaimed His Grace. "Your relative  shall have ,it tlie moment tho . place  is vacant, 'if you will but call my  nttontion to it."  ��������� "But how shall I get admitted to  you. My Lord? For in London, 1  understand, it is very difficult-, to get  a sight of you great folks though  you. are so kind and complaisant to*  us in the country."  "Tho instant the man dies." replied the Duke, "set out post-liaste  for London! drive directly to ray  House, and, be it by night or by day,  thunder at the door; I will leave  word with my porter to show yoa  upstairs directly! and the employment  , sliall bo disposed of according to  j-our  wishes."  The parties separated; tho Duke  drove to his friend's house in the  neighborhood, without a wish or desire to see. his now acquaintance till  that day seven years; but "tlie memory  of a CoAisli elector, not being burdened wilK such a variety of objects,  was moro attentive. The supervisor  died a few months after, and th'e  Duke's Humble friend, relying on the  word of a peer, was conveyed to London* post-haste, and ascended with  alacrity the steps of tKat nobleman's  place.  The reader should be informed that  just at" this time no less a person  than the King- of Spain, was Hourly  expected to depart tliis life���������an event  in which the minister of Great Britain was jinrticulnrly concerned; and  the Duke of Newcastle, on the very  niglit that the proprietor of tho decisive vote arrived at his door, had  snt lip anxiously expecting despatches' from Madrid. Wearied by ollicial  business and.agitated spirits,  HE RETIRED TO REST,  His friend from Cornwall, making  low bows with Hat in hand, and  "hoping ray lord would not forget  the gracious promise ho wns so good  as to make in favor of His son-In-  lnw at tho last election."  Vexed at so untimely a disturbance  and disappointed of news from Sjiain,  the duko frowned a moment; but chagrin soon gavo way to mirth at so  singular and ridiculous a combination of circumstances, and, yielding  to tlie impulse, he sank upon t'ho  bod in a violent fit of laughter, which'  was communicated in a moment to  tlio  attendants.  The relator of this little narrative  concludes with observing: "Although  th'e Duko of Newcnstlo could not  place tho relative of his old acquaintance on. the throno of his Catliollc  majesty. He advanced him to tho  post not less honorable���������ho mado  him an exciseman."

His grace was sound' asleep; and  the "porter, settled for the night in  his. arm-ch'air, had already commenc-  ~ed-a-s'oiiorous"nap,-whcn-the -vigorous-  arm of th"o CornisK voter aroused  him from his slumbers. To his first  question, "Is tlie duke at Homo?" tho  porter rej'licd, "Yes, nnd in bed; but  ���������has left 'particular orders that, como  when* you will, you are to go up to  him  directly."  "Bless him, for a worthy and honest gentleman,"' cried our applicant  for the vacant post, smiling and nodding with approbation at th'e prime  minister's kindness^ "How punctual  his grace is; I knew h'e would not deceive me; let me hoar no more of  lords and du.kcs not keeping tlieir  words; I verily believe tliey arc Honest, and mean as well as' any other  folks." Having ascended the stairs  as he was speaking, lie was usliored  into tho duke's bed chamber.  "Is he dead?" exclaimed his grace,  rubbing His eyes and scarcely awakened from dreaming of the king of  Spain,  "is ho dead?"  "Yes, my lord," replied tho eager  expectant, delighted.to find the':election promise, Willi all its circumstances, so frosli ir.'  THE NOBLEMAN'S MEMORY. ;  "When did Ho die?"

Tlio duke, by tliis time perfectly  awake, wa.s staggered at the impossibility of receiving intelligence from  Madrid in so short a sjmcij of lime,  ind perplexed at tho absurdity of .the  king's messenger applying fur his son-  in-law to succeed the King of Sjinin,  "Is tlie mnn drunk, or mud?

A real caso of "Babies in the  Wood" lias occurred in North Staffordshire, England, . 'Silver-dale.* was  tho scene of tho pretty littlo story.  A 5'oung servant took four children  out for a walk; they, lost their way  in a wood, wandered about until they  wero exhausted, then huddled together for warmth, and after the girl had  said a prayer, went to sleep. At four  olclock in the morning they were  found and taken home.  The servant's "name was Lizzie  Kirkham. She was sixteen years  old, and her little charges varied in  age from five years to eight months.  Throe of tliem belonged to a family  named Bootc.  The party set out in the afternoon,  and as none of them returned to tea  the parents began to get anxious.  Tlieir anxiety deepened as darkness  came on, and thero was still no sign  of the missing jiarty. Inquiries were  made among relatives and friends,  but no trace of the children or the  girl could  bo  found.  Meanwhile news of the affair spread  throughout the mining village, and  bands of sympathetic colliers formed  themselves into search parties. Tho  father of three of the children procured a trap, and other men started  scouring the district around on bicycles. By ten o'clock at night the  whole village was busily helping in  the search. The police ia neighbor  ing pottery towns were apprised of  thii occurrence, and in every likely  quarter a vigorous search "was continued by hundreds of peoplo for  tho gtoator part  of  the  night.  It was feared that the children  might havo fallen in the dark into  somo dis-uscd pit, or into some un-  fenced pond. However, just beforo  dragging operations were to havo  been commenced the miss-log party  were found.  About four o'clock the next morning a Newcnstlo-under-Lyne man was  startle! whilo mushrooming in Maor  Woods by hearing what ho thought to  be the bleating of a Iamb. Hc struck  a match, nnd approached a whito object and 'discovered that it was a  baby. Near by he saw the nursegirl  and the threo little children asleep  beneath a tree. He aroused Kirkham, who gave art" account of their  adventures.  '-'We got lost," slie snid, "when  out for a walk. Instead of getting  back to Silvor'dale, as we thought  we were doing, wo got further away.  The children, cried when darkness  came  on.  "We could not see anyone, and  there was no house in sight. We  wandered on till we wero all exhausted.- Then wo sat down. It was very  cold. Wo     huddled' together      for  warmth,  and th'en went     to sleep after I had said a prayer."  The man who found tho children  gave them some food, nn'd wrapped  his overcoat and jacket round the little ones, nnd led them to Silverdale,  where they arrived nearly four hours  later, the distance being seven or  eight miles.  Beyond contracting, colds the children were little the worse for their  niglit in tho wood.  [SCENES IS _S1DRED CITY  WEIRD   RITES  PERFORMED   IN  CATHEDRAL  AT LHASSA.

Latest Phase    of   the- Continental  Craze for Cards.  ���������A-striking-hovolty~in���������picturo_post-  cards i.s  about  to  bo placed on    tho  market by n French syndicate.  To an ordinary pictorial card is  aflixcd a very thin transparent gelatine disc, on wliich is impressed a  gramophone musical record. A hole  is jiierced through the centre of the  disc, arid the post-card can be placed  on an ordinary "talking machine"  nnd ployed in the usual way.  Tho musical post-card opens up an  entirely now field for the craze.  Photographs of great singers and  comiibsers  will     be  accompanied     by  Tho outer walls arc built entirely  of yak horns. Some of tlie Houses  Have banks of turf built up ou.tsido  the doors, witli borders of English"  flowers. The dwellings are mostly  two or tliree-storeyod, and bird cages  hang from tlie windows.  The outside of the cathedral is not  at all imposing. From the streets  one cannot see tlie golden roofs, but  only high' blank walls, and. at tho  entrance a forest of dingy pillars beside a massive door.  Tho door is thrown opon by a sullen monk, and a Huge courtyard is  revealed, witli moro dingy pillars  th"at..wcre once red. Tlie entire wall  is covered with paintings representing  Buddhist myth's and. symbolism: tlio  colors nro subdued and i^Ieasing.

As he  points to the earth there is tho clashing of cymbals, the beating of drums,  and ��������� tlie blowing of trumpets and  concli shells.  THen the music dies away liko the  reverberation of cannon in th'e hills.  Tlie abbot begins a chant, and the  monks, facing each other '.ike singing  men in a choir, repeat a litany. Th'ey  ���������have extraordinary deep, devotional  voices, at onco unnatural and impressive. The deepest bass of the west  does not approach it, and their sense  of time is perfect.  The voice of the thousand monks  is like the drone of some subterranean monster, musically plaintive���������the  voice of the Earth God praying for  release to the God of the Skies.

Tlio images were  greater than life-size, and set with  jewels ffom foot to crown. As in  tho cloisters of an English cathedral,  thore were little side chapels, whicli  held sacred relics and shrines.  There were lamps of gold and solid  golden bowls set on altars and embossed salvers of copper nnd bronze.  A hanging grille of eliainwork protected the precincts from sacrilege,  and  an  extended   hand,   bloody     and  extracts  from  their  works,     pictures menancing.   wa.s  stretched   from     th  of national flags by the anthems of  the different countries, and so on in  endless    variety.

Instead of wishing their friends a  "Merry Christmas and a Hal'py Sew  Year" in cold^print, Mr. and Mrs.  Smith will be "able* to send a spoken  message broadcast through  the jiost.

Having proved its uscfilncss as a means of propelling small craft at high speeds,  and then its ��������� adaptability to tho  ueeds of'thn passenger traffic, it has  been employed in tho Allan liner Victorian, recently launched, while tho  Cunard Company have two turbine  vessels on order.  While this evolution in size-has  been in progress, however, improvements in details have gradually been  made, so that now we learn," says  The .Westminster Gazette, that the  trial trip of the Midland Railway  Co.'s now turbine steamer Manxman,  built by Vickers, Sons & Maxim, at Barrow, has established a  new record in propulsion by means of  the turbine. In her several runs  over a measured mile on the Clyde  the Manxman gave d. speed of 23  knots. Hitherto steam pressures for  turbines have been kept down at 150  lb. per square inch, but in this vessel 200^ lb. press-nirc has' been provided, and^riliis has economic results.  The Manxman has been built for the  Heysham and Isle of Man service.  She wil!  carrj- 1500 passengers.  A gentleman ' intimately connected  with a large firm of engineers who  are-'engaged in ,thc maufacture of thc  turbines states that for fast passenger and oilier rapid, steamers the  turbine wns admirably suited 'whether the boat was engaged in thc short  homo trado or long foreign trade j  voyages. One of tho chief advan-i  tages���������apart from the question of |  spedd���������which the turbine possesses  over the'reciprocating engine is that  bad weather does not prevent the  tin bine making its normal sjiecd, and  passengers in any of the three cross-;  Channel -turbine steamers may count,  as fnr ns the engines are concerned,  on being landed at schedule timo.  notwithstanding Heavy head * winds  and' seas.  Referring to the question of the  best reversing gear, the firm suggested that for moderate speeds astern a reversing turbine wns adequate, but for High' stern speed a reciprocating engine was preferable. In  timo this difiiculty would, no doubt,  be solved without recourse to independent on-gines. In'regard to tho  commercial outlook" the engineers  maintained that nt present lho turbine was not economical for tramps  or si on mors whose average speed wns  below 15 knots. Even in ocenn pas-  sengor ships a speed about a 25 knot  "average was generally fatal from an  economic standpoint on account of  the huge conl space necessary to bo  reserved, crushing out cargo, etc.;  hence they did not anticipate a further dovelojiuient of speed beyond  25 knots in passenger ships' until the  fuel  difiiculty Iind  been  overcome.  With regard to the navy, the engineers nfiirm thnt the turbine wns  for nil ships, with but a few isolated  exceptions, preferable, Iiocuuso the  propelling power was less liable to  damage ���������luring war. They, 'therefore, expected largo developments in  this direction.  INCONSISTENCY Osr -WAR.  Strange    Occupation   for Civilized  Nations.  TKo Red Cross organization is altogether beyond praise. But the spectacle of thoso maimed soldiers being  carried in, with their fresh bandages,  recent wounds, their white faces and  vaguo wondering eyes, in tlio scorching sunlight, somo of lhem dying,  some of them crippled for life, all of  them suffering, made one think onco  moro what a strango ironical jiro-  ceeding is modern warfare, writes  Hon.

To  carry on war on humanitarian principles is, if one comes to think of it,  an absurdity. Our object in war is  to kill, destroy and damage tlio enemy as rapidly as possiblo, to lot  those wiio, are whole and Halo fight  for all they are worth", and lot tho  weak and the wounded "go to tlie  wall. Logically Rod Cross organizations and field hospitals arc a great  Hindrance and an unnecessary expense. If the fact of war bo admitted, logically it shot-Id be waged as  barbarously as possible, since a Humane war is a contradiction in  terms. It is like a humane boxing  match���������or  A HUMANE BULL FIGHT.  But, I suppose, just as to figlit and  to wage war are an ineradicable instinct and a raison de'otre of mankind to succor tho wounded is likewise an ineradicable instinct, and as  long ns armies exist, Rod Cross societies will exist. At tho samo timo,  whon ono sees tlio wounded brought  in on th'e stretchers all the philosophy in tlie world does not prevent  one from thinking war a strange occupation for civilized nations. It  may bo argued that the field of Crecy after the battle was probably as  gruesome a sight as a modern battlefield, and tliat we would no morc  part witK. tho namo of Crecy that we  would part with any of tlio jewels of  our national inheritance. But there  is this difference: thero was no moro  an ambulance or a Hospital at Crecy  than there would now be at a football or a cricket match. TKo French  and th'o English fought for fun then,  in tlio snmo way in whicli they now  play football. War was an aristocra-j  tic game.

Old Lady Still Keeps a Vegetable  Stall.  President Loubet, of France, haa  been visiting his old home at Montel-  imar. He was received at. tho railway'station, soy tlio French uews-  jmpers, by several functionaries, and  he subsequently took a drive in semi-  state With oiic of his cliildrcn. Much  less ceremonious was the '.charming  scene described by the Rev. A. N.  Cooper, the "walking jiarson." Mr:  Cooper in one of his rambles, found  himself' nt Montclimnr, and, looking  out of the window at his inn in the  early morning hn saw the President  escorting his old'mother to the market-place, wlinre she continued to sell  farm produce, even though her sdii  had become Chief Magistrate of the  Republic. She drove up in n market-cart, which wus duly unlmvlod.  Thon tho President gave her nis :i!tii,  escorted her to her chair, nnd ..pened  the great umbrella under which siie  sat. No funclionririos were 'ii ,*t'..tendance, nnd the reft of tho niarke'..-  jicople showed no signs of reg.uMing  thc incident na anything' remarkable.  At the end M.

"It's a protty good way too," retorted Tom. "I overheard lior toll  Lucy she preferred medium-sized men  to either tall or sliort ones."  "You say tliat because you are  medium-sized."  "And dark-complexioned to ligh't-  comiilexioned men."  "That's because you're dark and  I'm light."  "And ability of tongue rat'her tlian  of tKe pen."

HIS INHERENT PATRIOTISM.  Tho story of a littlo Boor boy who  refused to betray his friends, even oa  tlio threat of death, is told by Major  Seoly. M.P., ns illustration of deeply-  rooted love of freedom and country.  It happened during the Boer war.  "I was asked," said Major Seely,  "to got some volunteers, nnd try to  capture a commandant at a place  somo twenty miles away. I got the  men readily, and we sot out. It was  a rather desperate enterprise, but we  got thero all right. I can'see the  little place yet, I can hear the clatter of the horses' hoofs.  "Tho Boer general had got away,  but where hnd he gone? It wns even  a question of the general catching  us. and not we catching tho general.  Wo rode down to the farmhouse, and  thero we saw a good-looking Boer  boy and somo yeomen. I asked tho  boy if. the commandant had been  there, and he said in Dutch, taken by  surpris-o, 'Yes.' 'Where has he gone?'  I said, and the boy became suspicious.     He answered, *I don't know.'  "I decide'd then to do a thing for  which I hope I may be forgiven, because my men's lives were in danger.  I threatened tho boy with death if ho  would not disclose the whereabouts  of the general. He still refused, and  I put him against a wall, and said  I would have to have Kim shot. At  the same time ' I whispered to my  men :���������'For heaven's s'ake, don't  shoot.' The boy still refused, although I was going to have him  shot. 1 ordered the men to 'aim.'  Every rifle was levelled at the boy.  'Now,' I said, 'before I -give the  word, which way lias the general  gone?" I remember the look ia the  boy's face���������a look ������uch" as I havo  never seen but once. He  transfigured before, me. Something  greater almost tlian anything human  shono from his 03-cs. -He threw back  his head and said in Dutch, 'I will  not say.' There was nothing for it  but to shake hands with the boy and  go away."i  AUNT ESTHER'S  SECRET.  Bessie sat by the table, working at  h"et* home task in arthnietic. Her  face wus very sober, for she was in  a great hurry to finish and go out  to play with her cousin Polly.  By jind by Aunt Esther, Polly's  mother, came in, and seeing Bessie,  asked her why sho was not out at  play.  "I have to get my number work,  done. Aunt Esther," said Bessie,  "and it is very hard."  "Is it, indeed? Perhaps I can  help you," said her aunt, sitting  down beside the little girl "Four  nnd five make how many? Here is  your mama's button-bag. Take out  five buttons. Now four more. Count  them."  "Nino!"     cried     Bessie,     her   eyes,  dancing.  "Yes..    Now take four,  thon five."  "Nine again!" declared Bessio.  So the lesson wont merrily on, and  when    Bessie    had   the numbers   all  neatly written out her aunt   covered  tho  answers,   and Bessie  foun'd    that  sho   could     remember  every   one     of  them.  "Thank you. Aunt Esther," said  tho little girl. "This has been so  easy, and I thought, it was so hard.  I will  try  mama's  buttons  ngain."  "Thnt is a good idea, and now I  will tell you a secrot. If you learn  to add and substr.act all the numbers up to ten, if you learn them  _yo_ry_carcfu_l_ly_.._so__that_you_con give  the right answer every time without  stopping to count up, then you will  not need thn higher numbers very  much, but enn add ai>:l substract  them just as easily as you can ono  nml  two."  Is that not a lovely secret? Do  you not think it is true? Try it for  yourself nn'd sec.   -���������   FIELD MICE IN FRANCE.  Serious    Concern   in    the Agricultural   Districts.  According to the statement of a'  French newspaper, in th'o experiments  made during tlie month of February,  last in the Department of the Char-  entc, irr. Chamberland, of tho Pas-  teu.r Institute, estimated that tho-  average number of field mico to bo  found at that time ujion a hectaro  (2.47 acres) was 1.350. They consumed annually at least 13J tons of  vogetnblo matter. In 1S03. in the  region of Bar-snr-Seine, according to  another expert, there were moro tlian  10.000 field mice to tho hectare.  It will bo seen, then, that tho anxiety among the farmers i.s justified.  Such an increase in the number of  mice as would bo naturally expected  would permit tliem to eat absolutely,  every bit of living vegetation that'  a field could produce during tho season.  To destroy these pos<s people formerly resorted to asphyxiation by filling the burrows with smoke or to  drowning by pouring water into them  or to sowing jioison about the fields.  Tlie latter method, though the 'nost  efficient, proved so dangerous to domesticated animals that it was resorted to only in exceptional cases.  At the present, day another method  is used whicli is considered much'  more efficacious���������infection by a microbe wliich is deadly to rats and  mice only, domesticated animals being immune to its influence. In 1893  Doctor Danysz, of the Pasteur Institute, wliile studying tho habits of  field mice in tho Department of Seino-  et-Marne, observed that large numbers of mice died apparently from  disease. He collected virus from sick  animals, mado cultures, and assured  himself that these cultures absorbed  with tho nourishment produced the  disease in healthy rats and mice.  These experiments wero made on a  largo area, nearly 200 acres, and  seemed conclusive to the experts.  This method of destruction has been  recently commenced and carried out  systematically on a surface of 2,800  acres, and has proved ablo to accomplish the destruction of the mice,  while the game, fowl, and other animals of the farm were in no instance  affected.  Tlie seriousness of the situation is  emphasized by the fact that thc  French Parliament apjiropriated  295,000 francs $50,935 to be used  for tho 'destruction of tho mice. Tlio  virus, which" is furnished free to departments and townships, is supplied  from tliis fund^and is sent directly to  wasjth'e regions affected. The virus is  "'"* then distributed and mixed with" four  times its volume of slightly salted  water. - In this liquid crushed oats  are soaked; the oals are then distributed in suitable places near, the burrows in such" a wny as to contaminate as many families or groujis as  possiblo at ono time. Whon this has  been done, ton or twelve days afterward wliat is estimated at 95 per  cer.t of the mice have been found  dead in the fields.  One would expect from these results tliat thc work would bo quickly done, but the "campagno1.*;" aro  great travelers, and many disappear  from ono locality to reappear suddenly la another, breeding witli great  rapidity. The work has been going  on to-'-- ������o*ne month's, but thore are re- '  appearance in regions Hitherto unaffected, and it is probable that the ���������  figlit will continue for many more  weeks. .-jta ���������-*-,-��������� . 1  GOAT'S   MILK.

While Dr. Koch Qnd the Royal Com-*,  mission" on Tuberculosis,   With     their  several adherents, are exchanging polite scientific invective as to  whether  tuberculosis  is  or  is  not  transmissible from cows and their milk to    human  beings,   many     have  solved   tho  question in "their own way by leaving  cows'  milk' severely alone and drinking nothing but the product of     the  goat.      This  may be  regarded  as    a  very safo move, for tho average goat  has a most enviable constitution,  being immune apparently to every disease     that    attacks    sheep or  cows,  while it may' be kept with advantago  on  the roughest of  land.      Certainly  no goat has ever shown signs of tu-  tuborcular  disease,   and   on   this   fact  -aIon"e-th'e-urinker~of~goats'-milk   re=  lies  for  his  safety.   An  analysis     of  the nanny's milk shows a still  furtli-  or  advantage,   for  it  contains,    bulk  for bulk, nlmost    twice the    amount  of  nourishment  that  cows'   milk   has  hence,  though  it may be double    the  price, half th'e quantity ought to suffice, for it may be diluted with water  up to  twice  its original volume.    As  a     milk     producer,     the     goat      ii  of course much  inferior  to  tho   cow;  nannies  have  been  known   to   givo  a  gallon of milk a day; but two quarts  is nearer tlio    average yield;   but  on  tlio othor hand,  liousinc; accommodation nnd-nrca of-run mny be on    tho  most exiguous    scale,   a   fact    which  has earned the goat the title of jibor  man's cow.     The chief,  perhaps    thc  only,  objection  to  the  milk  ia    that  it docs not keep so  well as a cow's,  owing    to    its     exceptional   richness;  and  goats'   butter  has   the  snmo   inherent defect.     To  the animal  itself,  however;   serious    objection  ran      be  tnken unless kejit rigidly to its    own  domnin,  for  it  is  inordinately    fond  of young shoots of trees,  and  would  speedily  ruin     nny young  [limitation  to which  It had access.     This    proclivity has    lieen one     of   the     chief  causes of the nukednei*s of the mountains  nil     round    the  Mediterranean  where goats abound,  and  a     greater  demand  for    their miik  would    toon  show.i -similar    results  in  our    own  country  unless  strict  measures    woro  taken   to  prevent  stray inff.   4   'POPULARITY OF BROWN.

THE TRIUMPH  OF mPOCRISYt  One finds difficulty in believing that  the jubilation indulged in* by Liberals  over the results in Yale-Cariboo and  Kooten-iy as absolutely sincere, unless  at the same tune realizing tbat the  acme of hypocrisy has been attained  Ly these disciples of bogus ballot  "boxes and irreverent violators of God's  Holy "Writ. Albeit tbey are the same,  ���������whether manipulating elections in  Hastings or Froiiteiinc, or inducing  personators to swear awny their souls  in Algoma and JSippising. What is  the honest truth about Kootenay ancl  Yale-Cariboo? Last January noinin-  .ations were made by both parties, for  these and many other constituencies.  An unexpected session of parliament  ���������was convened and during the interim.  Liberals discovered that should the  elections in this district take place on  tbe same day a.s the general voting���������  neither government supporter could  lie elected. It was left for AV. A. Galliher to arise in Parliament and defend  the infamous trickery of the Government. Mr. Borden leader of the Opposition, appealed to the "Minister of  Justice "not to put a foul blot upon  the Dominion Election Act," Imt Mr.  Galliher upon being asked, gave his  word of honor that tbe returning  officer ''would have to visit every  polling place" and could not do so in a  ���������n eek. Ajked again, ^'Isjhat tjie cus-  tom in British Columbia?" he answered  "Yes." Thus the elections were deferred and upon the Government being  sustained that posilion was used to  coerce the lumbermen; influence the  mine owners, terrorise over those who  depended upon the Crow's Xest Coal  Company for a living, nnd appeal to  tbe cupidity of oflice seekers, contract  jobbers .and a horde of greedy expectants whose rewaitl will be���������disappointment.  Only an extreme Liberal or a chronic  "grafter" could glory over a victory  achieved by such unmanly, such unworthy tactics. It will be remembered  that ex-Governor Mackintosh has publicly declared that he promised XV. A.  Galliher neither to hold meetings,  epenk against bim nor canvass, should  Parliament be called: he kept his word  and was rewarded 'by tieacbery upon  the part of the man whom he treated  ���������with the utmost generosity, treachery  not only so far as calling the election  was concerned, but treachery so far  as tbe campaign was concerned, it  liaving lieen agreed that no personalities should be resorted to. Tlie Conservative candidate kept his pledge;  not so his opponent and his friends.  Where would W. A. Galliher have  lieen had retaliation been the Conservative policy?  The   Government   being   sustainei^  the next move  was  to influence the  mine   owners,    the    companies,   the  lumbermen of Yale-Cariboo.   A horde  of speakers, led by   Senator  Temple-  man, honeycombed the entire division,  large sums of money were expended  and Martin Burrill wits defeated.  Had  the   election   not   been  deferred,  his  majority would have  been 300.   The  same with Kootenay, where until tbe  ���������1th  of  November,   all    believed   the  Conservative    candidate    would    be  elected by at   least 350 to 400.   After  the result of  the 3rd, rumors could bc  heard in particular districts. In Moyic  and  Slocan  City  and Sandon, it was  hinted   that    Galliher  bad   received  assurances tbat a duty as  well as a  bounty, would  be put on lead: so merchants, business mon and miners were  (old that  "all depended  upon them."  In   Fernie,   of   course,   Senator Cox,  Robert J affray ct al. representing the  Crow's   >7est   Coal   Company, undertook to   "deliver   the goods."     Cranbrook and  Golden  were hard propositions, so  the wires were brought into  requisition and such pressure brought,  to bear upon  the lumber, mill owners  and   managers   that   through various  agencies they appealed to Mr. Mackintosh lo retire, as  if Galliher  carried  the   constituency,    the     Government  had  promised  to  shut  ont American  lumber.     The Conservative candidate  publicly    mentioned    this,   asserting  that he was willing to be sacrificed if  the'-lumbermen' were guaranteed the  protection   asked; but   as  he said  at  Revelstoke:     "I   fought beneath the  banner   of  .that    great   patriot  and  statesman   Sir  John   Macdonald; bis  vocabulary contained no such word as  Retreat.     In  1S7-I had Sir John Macdonald retired Canada was a, ruined  and   undone   country.     In   1S9I   the  grand old patriot  went to death fighting the enemies of the Empire on the  issue    of    Unrestricted   Reciprocity.  Well. I do  hot know the word retire.  rf^it"i^fr^"������l'^'Cotise1^-Wfv^inTnw''  who their  friends are."   These sentiments   were    heartily    approved   In-  thinking Conservatives, who felt that  it would be disastrous to surrender 011  unworthy   terms.      And even the bitterest   opponent  has   but    words   of  praise   for   the   two   candidates who  went   down   with   colors   flying, hut  stand   today   honored by all patriotic  citizens.      Now   let  the Conservative  Mr. Fulton at Kamloops, takes the  editor of the Mining Exchange to  task. Iu reply to the News the  Mining Exchange has the following  in reference to the McBride Government :���������  The News misapprehends our meaning and   intention   in   a  rather odd  way.   In using tlie term "strong"  we  were not in lhe  least  considering the  widely   diverging  views of   the   half  dozen warring  pulitic.il  fuel ions  who  have heen lining  their little best  for  some years past to ruin   tho country  for themselves and anybody else who  might como   into   it.   XVe  used  the  word "strong" solely in  reference  to  the light in  which tbe   present   Pro-  vi11ci.1I   Government   is  regarded  by  the outside world.     That that light is  a distinctly  favorable  one,  tbat the  present Gov. rnment is held in  higher  esteem in tlie financial circles of the  world than any previous government  in British Columbia has been for many  years, expressed opinions of financial  and other journals of high  standing,  extracts from which we have quoted  at various times during the past year,  give ample evidence.    And, permit us  to point out,   it  is   by   that   outside  financial   opinion���������in   a   country    so  dependent upon external capital for its  development as this is���������that British  Columbia must stand or fall.   With  the opposing points of view    of the  Ins and Outs in the funlioly squabbles  of local politics  tve  are   not  at   all  concerned    But it is   of   the highest  importance that tbis  country should  present a good "front" to the world at  large, and the government  whatever  its political creed or make-up may  be,"  which'can do tbis,  is most emphatically a strong government. \  EIGHTEEN YEARS  John D.

THE McBRIDE  GOVERNMENT  Is a Strong Government in the  sight of all Patriotic People���������  A Testimony from an Independent Source.  In the October issue of the B. C.  Mining Exchange the editor took  occasion to mention that the present  Provincial Government was a strong  government, and the Nelson Daily  News, edited and owned by F. J.  Deane,   who was   defeated by Hon.  Fort   Worth,   Tex.  Pompanoosnc, Vt.  The report of Secretary-Treasurer  Boyle elicited favorable comment  from thc chairman of the auditing  committee, ft showed that since the  last convention, two years ngo, the  membership of the organization bad  doubled and that the finances on hand  hail more than doubled.  Tiie total membership of the organization is more than 100,000 and it has  members in Canada, United States  and Mexico, The Canadian representation was particularly strong nt this  session. The date of the next convention will be tho first Monday in September, 1000.  President Wilson has occupied the  position of cliief executive of the organization for seventeen consecutive  years, or since, it was formed. Ife  first filled the duties of secretary and  treasurer, but with the growth of the  order it, was found necessary that a  secretary and treasurer should be  elected. Mr. Boyle was thc first incumbent of these offices and lias held  them uninterruptedly for four years.  ,, /JOS PBESOEITTIOIT.  Th* Dade TTm Taklng the Staff for Vear  p-^ That Hla natr  Would Fall On'.  ;HC dudlsh specimen of humanity pre-  Bemted last week to the clerk of a. certain drug store, on Olive street, a grc-  icrlption, reading as follows:     ���������  "Sodil chloridum, one ounce..  - "Aqua pura, four ounces."      '-  The -weights were written In the ordinary conventional style. The cleric  looked smilingly at the prescription  Tor Bait and water and asked the customer what he -wanted to use that prescription for.  "I am afraid that every *aalr will fall  out, and ������y doctor gave me that as a  prescription," was the anBwer. The  clerk filled the prescription and charged 75 cents. He put on the bottle a  red label, with the word, "poison," and  told the dude to be careful, as tho  '"sodll chloridum'' was particularly  fangerous.  ���������Two davs later Mister Dude brought  back the bottle to be refilled. Tha  clerk was absent, and the druggist  himself wftlted on him. This gentle-;  man found the prescription on file, but  the price had been omitted. He knew  that ha had to deal with a fool. Therefore he fixed up the salted water and  thought that 25 cento would be an hon������  est compensation.  "How Ib that?" asked.the customer.  "Last time I paid 75 cents."  The druggist went back to his prescription inclosure to investigate, or  rather to Invent a satisfactory answer.  In a few minutes he returned and explained that the duty on "sodll chloridum" (common salt), which was enormous, had been declared unconstitutional by the- Supreme Court of the  United States. As to "aqua pura" (pure  water) the price had fallen 100 per  cent on account of the absence of yellow fever this year in Central and  South America.  The dude went away satisfied with  his hair restorer, but the clerk will be  discharged if he falls to write the  prices on the prescriptions ia the future.���������St. liouls Republic,    .^fy  v-   A Friendly Foeltn**-.

A foi-u*\jght Inter, Jessie. wan,  wasted, (imj*. forlorn, paused with  weary feel before Westminster Abbey,  u grand gray mu.*<s in the dim sunshine filtering through the canopy of  golden mist. She-turned in ut rout's  Co?.'ier to read the great names with  some vague and solemn feeling of  companionship, and was comforted by  the quietness, when the door closed  behind her and the great wave of  roaring trallic surged away in a low  hushed murmur, rolling very softly  and soothingly among the dim shadowy arches.  The stillness, the subdued lights  aud mysterious shadows, the unaccountable rumbling echoes like silence*  audible, the perfect symmetry of  those slender columns ascending with  such rapid precision till they merged  in the narrow-pointed vaultings iar  overhead; the long dim vistas suggestive of endless continuance, the  ���������jiultijilicit.y and accuracy of the  perpendicular lines in this kind of  architecture, a multiplicity which  stimulates rather than confuses, the  great antiquity and sanctity of the  place and its manifold associations,  all combined to calm and elevate hcr  thoughts and refresh her jaded  nerves.      She had never seen a cath-  aml  dav  had  who  warrior  with   its  confused   noise  gnrments rolled in  blood.  She hnd eaten    nothing thnt  since  a  scanty  early  breakfast,  spoken  only  to  hard  strangers  looked upon her with stony eyes; she  saw    actual    starvation  before     her.  Then,   while she sat kindled  by     the  solemn, beauty of the Abbey, consumed  by  the eating    pain  of her  soul,     a  spirit from tho nether darkness' Hi tied unseen to her ear with bland whisperings,  asking  her  why  she  suffered  and     strove    so     far    beyond      hor  strength.      For a  narrow    prejudice,  for a word's     sake,     as Claude had  told her.     For this shadow of a punctilio she had left him who loved and  needed her, lonely,  wretched, pcrliap.-j  bitter and reckless;  for this she   hiul  renounced  the vcry life of life,  a lot  so fair and noble, so bright with unusual  promise.      She thought of  thp  world's    beauty,      of    noble historic  scenes,  of music and art in fair and  ancient    foreign    cities,  of mountain  grandeur,   castle-bordered   rivers,   leg-  end-hnuntod  forests,   lovely  scenes   in  which they two might wander braced  and    elevated    by holy passion    and  noble  sympathy,  all  in  all  to     each  other,  living a    life of pure intellectual  and   emotional   happiness,    each  supplementing the deficienees and en*  eriral before, and the fascination of h'nncing the gifts of the other, harm-  old Gothic architecture"Was strong ing none and unreproachod. Was ho  enough  to  overpower     the effect    of  missing her now with  the same   sick i rose a pure and happy boy-voice  those huge and hideous monuments  blocking fine vistas and marring  beautiful combinations.  Here, in the presence of entombed  kings and warriors, saints and  sages, the bitter present dwindled to  its proper, insignificance; she felt the  continuity of national life, and the  conviction that to-day is the final  result of innumerable yesterdays impressed her, when her eyes rested on  stones seen by eyes which turned to  dust centuries ago, and hallowed bj)  tho prayers of long dead generations.  She was glad to sit in a shadowed  nook and let these larger thoughts  and nerve impressions sink quietly  into her, and so forgot herself for a  little while.  AU that day, and nearly every-day.  aluce her flight, she had wandered  wxariiy, vainly seeking work, with an  ever-sinking heart and ever-shrinking  purse. She had ventured into the  Xational Gallery, and there seen that  it must be long before she could  grasp the elements of art; she saw it  with a heavy apathy foreign to her,  for what is art to one who has no  desire or hope-not-fatally 'bruised?  She had met with' rebuffs, sneers���������  worst of all, that dreadful form of  admiration which  is insult.  Sot only was all hope gone, but  overy illusion had faxlcd from her  ruined youth, men had stones for  hearts, the fairy city was paved with  mud for gold. Never in her life had  she seen such grime and squalor; the  smoke and fog polluted her very  breath: she could not open her ill-  fitting *.window-sash without letting  in a swarm of smuts to soil the close  dingy room she had cleansed with  her own hands. Of the moral 'filth  she had as yet caught but a few lurid  glances.  Never was woman's heart more sick  for home than Jessie's when she stole  into the Abbey in the chill of that  autumn afternoon: the mere thought  of a home face brought tears to her  how  and stormy 5-earning that wasted hor  lifo? How da rod she leave him?  That one face was never quite absent  from her thoughts, now roso vividly  before her, its beauty enhanced, its  passion sublimated, invisible arms  wero silently folded about her; sho  heard the music of the unforgo'tten  voice whoso lightest tone stirred her  to tho depths, her lips glowed wiih  a remembered kiss. She no more  considered the beauty of the dim long  drawn aisles, her marble-white, anguished faco was buried in her quivering hands, while the dark spirit  marshalled vision after vision before  her, gazed reproachfully on her with"  Claude's eyes, and spoke in his  voice.  Tho time drew onto evensong. .The! nook'  breathes." She raised her head and  rested it against the stone pillar,  listlessly hearing the chanting of the  evening Psalms; never had she heard  such sweet and soothing singing as  this.  "Hold thee still in the Lord nnd  wait patiently for him���������fret not thyself." How beautiful tho familiar  words rang in the rich restrained  music! "1 myself beheld the un-  ungodly in great power and flourishing like a green bay tree. Vet a little while and the wicked shall not be  ���������I sought him, and ho was not  found."  Ves, the richest earthly happiness  was but for a day, and then'.' Jessie  could not do deliberate wrong, howevor she might err through frailty or  ignorance, and what would wrong  profit the soul that was dearer than  hcr own? The singing went on, now  softer, now stronger, like sea waves.  "Put thou thy trust in God and be  doing good,-und lie shall bring it to  pass," the clear boy-voices sang, and  before they ceased the dark spirit  folded his wings and sank inlo the  depths of the everlasting storm,  peace stole into Jessie's torn heart,  crowned and winged presences seemed to draw near her. * Tho evening  prayers sank healingly into her soul,  tears fell softly over lier palo and  wasted young face.  Once moro tho organ storm broke  forth in splendid tumult and the  voices of the full choir pealed majestically through it, "The Lord is  King,' be the people never so impatient; he sitteth above the water  flood, bo the people never so unquiet." Then a lonely golden tenor  voice complained, "The sorrows of  death encompassed me. thu overflowings of ungodliness made me afraid���������  the pains of bell got hold of me,"  until once more tho tumult of the  full choir broke in witli the refrain,  "He sitteth above the water-flood be  tho peoplo never so unquiet." Then  from those!stormy depths of harmony  I  waited for the Lord and ho inclined  unto me"���������"Ho hath set my feet upon the rock"���������"Ho hath put a new  song into my mouth, and ordered all  my.goings," it sang in lucid melody  failing like a shower of light and  melting finally into the triumphant,  jubilant, multitudinous "shout of the  full choir,. "The Lord  is King."*  Awed, soothed, uplifted in heart.  Jessie sat still and listened to holy  words and holy song, till the benediction sank into her heart, and the  final strains of music died away. She  was resolute now,.to keep on in the  path that seemed safe to her, to seek  her bread . by painful toil, and failingthat to 'starve,-.-'but never, never  sin. She remained in her tranquil  until    vast     winged    shadows  missionary institutions and referred  tliem to places whero young women,  are employed. And once being in  town for a few days Mr. Digloby had  gone with Claude Arodwny to look'at  the body of an unknown young  woman wiio had been found dead ot  want, und who was described as having bluo eyes and abundance ot fair  hair, and the same height and ego  as Jessio. Entering the mortu.iry  they suw a slight, shrouded form lying- iu tlie stony stillness of u.v.it'h,  tho outlines of the face were .'.tintly  visible under the white sheet, from  beneath which flowed one long fair  tress of curling hair.  i\rr. Ingleby, palo nnd quivering,  advanced in all reverence to the  i shrouded head, but Claude clutched  his arm and drew him back with a  sharp cry. "Wail, wait, wait!" he  repeated in harsh aiul increasingly  strident tones, pointing to the long,'  fair curls which he knew to bo .io's-  sie's.  "Jt must be done," Mr. Imrhiiy  soid at last. "Let me do it. St-md  back."  "So, no," he replied with a"dis.'���������>limit laugh. "What, man? Afraid  of a face? of a dead girls fu..'e?"  Striking him off he rushed forward,  then stopped and trembled. Mr. Ingleby was afraid ho would fall upon  the quiet form, the repose of which  was the more awe inspiring in contrast with the living man's emotion.  Twice he touched and twice dropped  the  corner    of    the   sheet,  and  thon  .1  NATURAL GREEN tea of Ceylon. ������ Thc rival of  Japan."

ITe had long since given up haunting J""^  the shop in thc Strand; but he still-'  wandered in many of. the streets, and  saw many a terrible phase of London life. On wild nights���������- he stood  outside workhouse^doors and scanned  the     ghastly     faces   of    the  hunger-  nnd folded it back on tlie icy oroast.  Mr. Ingleby wa telling him, turned  nick and covered his face, he could  bear to look no more.

He gently replaced tho cover with a silent prayer for  the unfriended dead, and then hclj ed  tho attendants to temove Claude and  pluce him in the open air.  "She had a look," Claude t.vd,  when he revived and gazed into Mr.  Ingleby's kind blue eyes, which vir  wet with something that did him no  discredit, "she had a look���������of Fan-1  uy."  Fanny's face had followed him c-veri  of it. Maybe tliey don't caro to see  how dirty the stable is, nnd so keep  dark about-, it.  Make the stable so tliat it will  keep warm by the animal heat. It  is rarely tliat our stable goes below 55 degrees to 60 degrees in the  vol-y coldest of weather and yet the  cold fresh air is pouring into it constantly from 30 registers 10x12 inches in size. But tho stable is made  tight, witli four dend air spaces in  the walls, with all hay sh'utcs or silo  sliutos, or otiier openings leading upwards closed  when not in use.  If the side walls are mado of  wood, as they should be, it is a  simple thing to make it over in the  right manner. Starting witli the  2x1 studding and cover on the inside with building paper; tlien nail  a 2x2 piece to oach studding and  covor with paper as before; thon nail  on another 2x2 strip antl go over  with paper as before and finish by-  ceiling with ship-lap boards. Here  wo liave a stable wall with tliree dend  air  spaces.  Then  ceill   overhead  with  stable room tliat will bo n joy to  you and your cows, as long as you  use it. Many farmer.*- nro hindered  from making ovor thoir stables in  thi.s way, by reason of the side walls  being constructed of stone. lint holes  can be cu.t in lho walls for more  windows and the walls can bo furred  out with' two of the 2x'l* air spaces  spoken of on the inside, and tlie room  ceiled ovor. Ono farmer, to whom  wc recommended this change, was  surprised at how cheaply it was done,  and said ho had never known what  it was to liavo a comfortable stable  for his cows before. Holes can be  chiselled through the walls from the  outside near the ground, or at least,  tliree feet down from the top, nnd tho  fresli air let in behind tlio paper furring, to rise and come into the stable  at the top of tlie room. It is necessary to have tho fresli air start from  an opening several feet down on the  oiitside and come into tho stable nt  the top, so that it may be warmed  by the warm air. I'he warm air is  prevented from (lowing, out (liroug'h  the fresli air openings because it is  lighter and cannot sink, while tho  cold, fresli air wil! constantly rise  and flow into'-tlio room tlirough the  warm nir at the top.  Wlien tlie stable is made ovor rigiit.,  then take a .small force pump with*  a liose and give it two coats 01" th'in  whitewash'. A little money laid out  in this way will pay grandly iu tlie  increased health and efficiency of th'o  cows.

Nature's demands for rest aro imperative. 'Tbey aro often enforced  tth'rougli the infliction of pain, and  y persistent disregard of th'em is punished at times with death. The unresisting infant spends much more  than half its time in sleep, and it  should bc encouraged to do so, for  sleep is tho typo of perfect rest, and  -,most essential to growth. In adult  'life, energy can bc made n substitute  for rest to a remnrkablo extent. Tho  "hours of sleep may bo reduced from  the normal eight to four, and fho  week may be robbed of its Sabbath";  'yet not with impunity. Such pi-cic-  k.tics beget a predisposition to the  Icontagious and infectious diseases,  'diminish the capability for efficient  ! work, and often induce disorders of  ktho nervous system. Tlio penalty  may bo long deferred, but it frequcnt-  \\ ly becomes more severe with delay.  >lh all circumstances, rest sliould be  commensurate with labor or exercise.  Tho apparent demand for rest varies  with' the temperament and vigor of  ithe person; sometimes it is governed  largely by.habit, nnd it is often increased by an inability to obtain  completo repose. Ability to rest is,  with' many people, a natural faculty,  while wifh others it is nn art. The  lirst step toward acquiring it is generally, the systematizing of one's duties; so that no unfinished tasks re-*,  main: at-/ night to occupy th'e mind.  Lassitude and drowsiness, on the  other hand, are often induced by ro-  t\\ .tcntion of ptomains or other poison-  ������V*i*ous matters in the system, and rest  is of littlo benefit until the poisons  have been removed.  Benefit may ofter.* be derived from  1 shortening of th'e intervals between  .the periods of repose. A sound nap  * of only a ��������� few minutes' duration in  th'e middle of the day, for example,  is more beneficial than several Hours  of sleep made restless or broken by  ���������th-oams as a result of prolonged fatigued But tho mind is more quickly refreshed tlian the body, and the  apparent invigoration after a short  sleep may prove to be of almost as  short duration.  Thero aro many ways, too, of obtaining both' mental and physical recuperation without increasing. the  hours of sleep; even without idleness.  Some-persons can obtain it best in  reading, others in conversation, and  ���������-others, again, in solitude and thought  with a couch, a hammock or a.rocking  chair for tlie sake of muscular relaxation.  In addition to all ordinary rest  every one ought to take a .vacation  ' df several weeks' duration once a  year or oftcner, at such' times and in  such' manner as will give the most  complete relaxation and abstraction  from accustomed worry and care���������  youth's Companion.  HEALTH  AND SUNSHINE.  It hns for some years been known  .that sunlight acts as a destroyer of  many of those pathogenic organisms  which aro popularly known as germs.  Some time ago an ingenious experimentalists dcmor.strated this fact in  a  very    convincing  manner   by pre-  . paring a "culture" of these germs on  a flat surface ar.-d exposing it to sun-  . light beneath a stencil plate, with'  .the result that he obtained an image  of the cut-out part of the stencil in  'dead germ life, the rest of the prepared plate being still alive. He called it a "living" photograph," but the  .same term has since been applied to  the popular cinematograph picture.  Th'e Massachusetts Board of Health  have recently carried out a series of  experiments in order to ascertain how  far sunlight is able to cleanse water  affected with th'o undesirable germs  which result from sewage contamination. The two organisms dealt with  more particularly were the colon bac-  cilus and that associated with typhoid. Th'ey found th'at both' species  were quickly "destroyed by free access  to sunlight, thirty minutes' to an  hour being,,   sufficient  to  sterilize     a  "culture~wheh spread-out~iri~a.���������thin"  layer, as in th'e pgotographic experiment already detailed. In the case  of typhoid bacillus from 95 to 99 per  cent, were quickly killed by.:.e-rposuro  to direct sunlight, but there were always nv few hardy individuals which  required for their destruction an extended time.

Somo  there are, however, on account of  apparently inexplicable reasons, -Who  are supersensitive to such conditions.  But these, above all othor persons,  find their best protection in habituating tRinselves to a plenary supply  of fresh air under all circumstances;  by woollen clothing and by particularly avoiding small bedrooms and all  such conditions as are engen'ie'ed by  tbem.  People generally rely altogether too  much upon the house to exclud-3 cold  air, instead of. warm clothing, by  which thoy exclude fresh' air.

His Daughter, Florence, Was All  But Dead From Dropsy���������Her  Doctor Had Given Her Up���������Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills Wero Then  Used and To-day She is Well  and Strong.  From tho Post, Thorold,  Ont.  Everybody    believes   in a    dreamy  sort eof way of tho efficacy nf a well  nnd wisely advertised medicine, when  tho recorded cases of restored health  aro at  a distance;  but when  a case  conies up in    the   home town,   when  tho    patient  is    known to overyonc,  and when tho euro.is not only positive but maivellous,    tho efficacy   of  tho  medicino  becomes a fact���������a    decided  thing.      For  many years    thc  Post has    advertised   Dr. "Williams'  Pink     Pills for    Palo   Peoplo; largo  quantities of them have been sold by  the local drug stores,  and many   remarkable    cures   liavo  been  effected.  Ono of these attracted the attention  of our reporter and h'e investigated.  Miss    Florence    Hilton,  tho  eighteen  year   old   daughter    of Joseph    and  Mrs. Hilton, living" in the west   port  of. th'o town, was! taken ill early last  summer with   dropsy,  coupled    with  heart trouble.        She was compelled  to giv? up one   duty after   another,  and finally became unable to walk or  to Iio down.     Her suffering was    intense  and medical  skill did all  that  could    be done.      Florence, however,  grew worse,  sitting in her chair day  ond   night    for five long   months to  get her breath, and the parents   despaired.     At last the doctor gave her  up and said further visits wero futile.  The   poor   girl's limbs  woro pitifully  swollen and finally burst below    the  knees.        She sat  helpless and weak,  gasping     for     breath   and   at times  could breathe at   all only with    the  greatest   difficulty.       Ono niglit    the  neighbors came in and said she could  not  live  till   morning.      But  to-day  she is olive and well,  moving about  among her  young companions  a    remarkable and miraculous contrast to  what  she   tlien   was.      The reporter  called    ono    evening   at the ��������� Hilton  home, but Miss Florence was out visiting.   Tlie father and    mother   vara  in,  however,  and freely told him    of  the cure,  which they attribute entirely to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.     The  first box was  brought to her by her  grandmother,     who  urged  their   use.  Then Mrs. Hilton herself remembered  that she had ithe previous winter boen  cured by Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills of  a slight attack of dropsy, and    also  remembered the many cures advertised  in  the   Post.      She bought-    two  boxes and Florence took them,  three  pills at a dose.      In two' weeks    she  felt a slight decrease in the pain   in  her limbs,  and more pills were   procured.       For five months���������five    long  pain-laden     months���������the  weary     girl  had sat day and night in her   chair,  but -now  she began to feel  the   pain  leaving her and to see her   limbs -resume  their natural     size.  ��������� Fourteen  boxes of tho pills wore taken and   at  last  her   perseverance   was  rewarded.  She rose from her chair; her former  strength gradually came back; one by.  one hor household -duties wore   taken  up again,. and when The Post representative  ' called    ho    was  mot    by  beaming  faces   and  thankful  "hearts  and a grateful readiness to give   to  the world the facts  that had  saved  a bright young life "and had brought  joy   instead    of    grief to a Thorold  home."  In thousands of other homes,  scattered over tho length and breadth  of Canada, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  have brought health and joy and  gladness and in every home in th'e  land where sickness and suffering enters new health and strength can be  had through, a fair uso of this medicine.

Girl   Married  a  Dying Prisoner ���������  New  Caledonia  Convicts  Intermarry.  Though    marriages  are  practically  unknown in British prisons,  in other  countries they aro sometimes allowed,  especially beforo  tho accused  is convicted of his    crime,  says Pearson's  Weekly.  Not long ago all Now York was  talking of a romantic marriage tliat  had boen qide'tly celebrated in ono of  its prisons. A lawyer named Patrick was found guilty of tho murder  of an old man and tho forgery of his  will, and lay awaiting th'o death sentence in tho Tombs Prison. Hc  protested his innocence, which wns believed in by n Mrs. Francis, a widow, wiio loved him.  To show her faith in her lover slie  made application to tlio prison officials for permission to seo Kim.  This was granted and under tlie very  noses of the authorities, wiio were  ignorant of the ceremony tlius being  enacted, sho married tlio lawyer.  Accompanied by Patrick's father  and sister and lier lawyer, Mrs. Francis was told to wait in tlie matron's room. Here the prisoner was  brought to h'er. The widow had in  her pocket a marriage contract, requiring only tlio signatures bf the  parties and witnesses. While tlie  matron was busy with h'er duties at  ono end of the room tho prisoner and  the widow wore legally joined together as man and wife at th'o other.  A few. days after the bride again  became; a widow.  A marriage that was not only celebrated in prison, but with a dying  bridegroom, was \ that of a young  clerk and his employer's daughter in  a Berlin prisfltt about a couple of  years ago.  MARRIED TO A DYING MAN.  THe young man was engaged to be  married when his master discovered  that he had been systematically  swindled. Being found guilty, the  clerk was sentenced to two years'  imprisonment; and, of course, the em-  rloyer forbade 'his daughter any further intercourse with the worthless  scamp. His hope th'at th'e girl's love  would be shattered by the pronouncement of her lover as a th'ief was in  vain. News reached the girl that Ker  fiance was seriously ill. On visiting  the prisoner she found that he was  dying, and, at tlha risk of for ever  displeasing her family, determined to  show her devotion by marrying him.  Permission was obtained, and the  chaplain stood by the dying man's  bedside to read the marriage service.  Within an hour'lie had to perform a  moro solemn duty, and t'he wife of a  few minutes became a widow. ' .  So groat was the lovo of a young  Russian woman for a convict' sentenced to ten years' labor in the salt  mines of Siberia that, after marrying  him, sh'o followed him to that terrible country in order to bo near  him and to await the expiration of  his sentence. Th'eir marriage took  placo ' at Witebek, a town on the  Dwjna.  Bc'the Daguonoau, with tho right to  call him husband.  As Goirand was not convicted, the  magistrate who was judging him  had no option but to givo his consent. Ho sont for Bertho Dagueneau  and asked her if &Tio wero willing to  marry Goirund. Sh'e replied that sho  loved him very mucli, and that tho  wedding day would bo tho happiest in  her lifo.  A few days afterwards, in tho local mayor's office, witli four stalwart  policemen as witnesses, the couplo  were joined together in matrimony.  After a loving farewell the bridegroom wns led nway to his coll,  while tho bride wont out to await  the release of her husband.  THIBETAN SUPERSTITIOE.  Strange   Reliefs About    the  Moon and Stars.  Sun,  Tho Thibetans havo numberless  strange myths, one, tho most curious  pertaining to tho sun, moon and  stars. The sun is believed to bo an  immonso ball of yak-meat and fat,  whereon tho spirits of departed an-,  cestors are supposed to feast, the  light being caused by its heated condition. Tho stars ..arc portions of  t**is immense feast,������ which, droppin;  to earth, givo birth to animals for  the sustenance of suffering humanity.  Tho moon is a lesser ball of similar  texture as the sun. In use while the  larger one is being replenished for  tho morrow. When sun and moOn  fails to appear in cloudy days and  nights, it means that the deities are  undergoing a period of religious abnegation. And th'e Parched and sterile condition of bleak regions is ascribed \6 the fact that many thousand years ago the sun ball' slipned  from the hands of its keepers, de-  cended too near the earth and, before being re-captured, scorched those  parts with which it came in contact.  Theso illustrations out of hundreds  that might be cited, at least give a  hint of the ignorance, superstition  and brutality of tho Thibetans, as  well as of their heterogeneous tribal  relations "their lack of any real national union and their inability to  resist aggression; a hint also of tho  greatness of England's" task.

A local watchmaker, engaged to  be married to tho daughter of a  priest of his native town, was convicted of coining,' and was about to  bo transported when the girl made  application to t'he authorities for  permission to marry him. Her father and friends tried to persuade her  to desist, but she was bravely obdurate.  TKe convict, shackled with' heavy  chains on liis hands and feet, was  brought to the prison cliapel, where  th'e bride was waiting, dressed in  deep mourning. Under these gloomy  conditions, with" ' warders all round  them, th'c couple became man and  wife. The bridegroom ' was taken  back to his cell, whence lie started on  his honeymoon to Siberia, while the  bride returned to her home to make  preparations to follow him into  exile.  Marriages among certain classes of  convicts in the French" penal scttle-  ment-in���������New��������� Caledonia^are^^very,  common, being encouraged by th'e authorities. The convict, who answers  to our tick'et-of-loave man, save that  he is not allowed to leave the island, may send for his wife if married; but, if a bachelor,  MAY SELECT HIS  BRIDE  from among the convicts of th'e other  sox around liim.  More often than not th'e couple establish themselves in business, and  frequently become well-to-do. If after  a period of probation* ' the selected  wife does not come up to the anticipations of her spouse, ho can, with  the permission of the authorities,  make another selection.  A marriage tliat was dramatic in  its sadness was celebrated a few years  ago in Cuba. The wedding was fixed and all arrangements wero made  when the bridegroom, a Cuban, was  arrested on a charge of conspiring  against Spanish' rule. Being found  guilty, ho was sentenced to be sliot;  but Kis bride, a young Irish girl, determined to show h'er faith in tlie innocence of her lover by marrying him  in spite of "his own protest. Begging  a grudgingly-given -permission from  the authorities, she was actually  married to her lover on the very day  of execution.  Before a guard of soldiers the prison chaplain performed tlie ceremony  and at its conclusion the bridegroom  was led away and blindfolded. Within  tliirty minutes the bride fell fainting  to tlie ground as the report of rifle,  Shots reached lier cars, for slie knew  tlien  tlint  slie was  a  widow.  A  HAPPY  PRISON MARRIAGE.

Be nobody else but you.  When in doubt, don't even whisper.  A word    to the unwise is superfluous.  It  is  always  safe to  suspect     the  suspicious.  Be generous in'thought but miserly  in words.  ^-Successful men are not of necessity  good men.  Vanity is often mistaken for prido  in this world.  Got  the  prize.     Let  others  explain  how they lost.  Every man is compelled to pay his  debt to nature.  Courage  is  simply  knowing     when  it is wise to be afraid.  Most of our earthly pleasures    are  due to our ignorance.  The less some people have to   say  the more talking th'oy do.  Th'e  duties' we  owe  ourselves     are  generally performed lirst.

Tlie best wny to educate a bright  young man is to put him to work.  Often you can sell a worthless thing  easier than you can give it away.  Useful education is a gradual elimination of knowing everything.  Tho men who are satisfied to take  things as tliey come never get mucli.  The man wiio says lie only wants  justice is often sorry when ho gets  it.  Ill luck is sometimes better than  good luck, as it may cause a reformation.  Boys make their own way better if  tliey do not always have tlfeir own  way.  ��������� When a man is working for himself  he doesn't have to employ a timekeeper, j  Thoso who borrow trouble multiply  it and then lend it to th'eir friends.  Larceny, embezzlement, and defalcation are merely misapplied business  acumen.  Many people think' thoy are living  for character wiio are only fighting  for reputation.  If your enthusiasm lasts only forty  minutes, you can't expect it to do  anything for you. ,  There is nothing makes a woman  feel so proud and a man so foolish' as  to read old love letters.  "Uo you know,"-remarked th'e pessimist, "I think that I have experienced every kind of misfortune except  hanging?" "Well, you shouldn't be  discouraged," rejoined the optimist.
