Is the Cause of a Good Deal  of Excitement���������Where will  the   Depot  be   Built  is now  .  the Burning Question.  Excitement, petitions   und  counter  petitions, and on  every street corner  for the past week has been gathered  a combination of    rare  intellect discussing  the   0.   P.   It.' station   site.  Meetings : lire  being* held. at regular  intervals   and   to   judge  by the wise  looks  of  the   men   in the kuow, the  newspaper   reporter   is speedily  convinced that, there is something doing.  At  flist   thought   the   reporter  was  inclined to imagine that the Russian  Baltic fleet  had  captured  Esquimalt  harbor, during the lull incident to the  discussion  of r the  Autonomy Bill at  Ottawa, and had. landed* an army to  march  through Eagle Pass and capture   the   army   of  gallant   workers  who are throwing up breast works on  the sand bar on the south side of the  Columbia.   However, after tracing up  the   different clues  the reporter discovered that there was truly   "something  doing." -   On   Friday   evening  last a  meeting   was called by some  person   for eight'o'clock  in the city  hall.   - Ttiereportets were not notified  of the meeting, and not a few of the  citizens were  treated   with  the same  courtesy.    But'the meeting was held,  with Mayor  Brown  in tbe chair and  H. N. Coursier officiating as secretary.  ~A number of telegrams weie drafted  and-"ordered  to be despatched to the  officials of the C. "P. R. and the Railway ,. Commission" and to the member  for this-riding,.Mr. Galliher, protesting against  the erection of .the C. P.'  R. depot on the north side of the track'  and asking them*to*( consider the advisability���������in thejnterests of the pub-  HcT-'of placing^ the ne,w depot'atsome  ���������point oe'.the south side.^.-A*'; petitions  WhtCK had -Iyccu ci^ov������lrttoA_i*l,^.-S������������j *-V.������  wejek and -largely signed w.as taken  into consideration. I't was deoided by  the ��������� meeting to send, Mayor Brown  down to* Ottawa" to lay the wishes of  the meeting before the proper authorities, 'and Mr. Browri' left on Tuesday  morning on his mission. But during  the .time these- interesting matters  were taking - place, a counter petition  was ��������� being circulated, protesting  against the attitude of the meeting  and stating the view tbat if the C. P.  R. could not see their way clear to  place tlie depot on the" south side  without having to shift its location  too far either "east or - west, the petitioners would prefer' having it remain  on - the site chosen by the"company  themselves.  It is regrettable t'.iat so wide adiffer-  ence of opinion exists on this matter.  The C. P. R. have made their plans in  regard to the yard improvements and  the erection of the depot, and it is  possible now that if the company are  forced to chose a new site for their  depot, the immense work proposed to  be done by them here this year will be  postponed until -such- time - as ncw-  plans can be prepaied, 'and probably  another year will elapse before the  city receives the benefit that would  undoubtedly, accrue from so large an  undertaking.

WHATiDlJES  ilfrl>#rEN8  C B, HUME & CO,  Department Store  Cassie Gets Ten Years.  ; Cleveland, Ohio, March 20.--Mrs.  Cassie L. Chadwick was sentenced yesterday to ten years in . the Ohio state  penitentiary by Judge Rolicrt F. Taylor iii the United States district court.  The sentence came at the close of a  busy day for the court, hearing arguments on a motion for a new trial.  The motion was overruled. Mrs.  Chadwick was not particularly affected  hy the action of the court. When ordered to stand up and receive her  sentence, Mrs. Chadwick did not hear,  and was assisted to her feet by a  deputy United Slates marshal. The  court asked her if she had anything to  say why sentence should not be  passed. "I have something to say,"  she said, "hut I would like to consult  with my attorneys fiist." "You may  do so, hut it miist be' immediately,"  the court enjoined her. : "If.you have  anything to say you must say it now."  Mrs..Chadwick said there was nothing  she cared to say herself. Her attorneys made no appeal to the court, and  the sentence was immediately imposed.  Knights of Pythias.

'     -, ���������,- . -r  Ottawa', Marcli 28.���������Politicians at  Ottawa are puzzling over*, the speech  made in the House last Saturday ;by  the Finance Minister. No one'suggests  that the utterance was not ,'a significant one, that it meant a vast deal  more than appeared on the face of it.  Mr. Fielding openly declared his refusal to accept or even entertain the  argument of Sir Wilfrid' Laurier. He  made his declaration as a. Cabinet  Minister, and as one who - clearly, intended to remain in office.  .  The incident has set the capital  thinking. Mr. Fielding is deliberately  swallowing his known views, and is  doing it behind what at thc best is a  shallow pretence. Why is he doing it?  He is with the bill, to which the party  fortunes have been tied, but he is: not  wilh his nominal leader..* He takes a  stand of his own, barely saving his  right to remain a member of the  Ministry. Why is he doing it, and  what^dqes_it_porteud?  The Finance Ministef"has"heetrsincc  the general election, and for some  time before it, first choice for the  premiership. Is he any nearer it now  and does his semi-independent support  of Sir Wilfrid Laurier at this season  keep him nearer?  These are questions much asked at  the'Capital. There exists an * impression that the whole basis upon which  Sir Wilfrid Laurier united his Cabinet has not been made known, but  that the secret is to be found in the  stand taken by Mr. Fielding. The  situation on Parliament Hill is too  peculiar to be without some significance as to the futuro of the: premiership and of the personnel of the  government. The result is that a  feeling of disquiet has got into the  Liberal party at Ottawa. There prevails a strong sense of foreboding.  It is hinted that Sir Wilfrid Laurier  will never face the cost of his betrayal  of provincial rights. " He will never  lead the Liberal party again at a general election. Sometime after the  passage of the autonomy bills���������how  soon after it is impossible to say��������� he  will give up the reins of office. He  will do it as much in justice' to,, those  of his ministers whose future he has  imperilled, as for any other reason.  Hon. "VV. S. Fielding will then become  Premier, and a general und thorough  overhauling ot the Cabinet will take  place.  There are those who say that the  exit of Sir Wilfrid Laurier will mean  the estrangement of Quebec, and  eventually disaster to the party.  Whatever truth there may or may not  lie in thc predictions that arc being  made, one thing is a certainty; It is  that there exists in Sir Wilfrid  Laurier's Cabinet only a temporary  and makeshift unity.  As the result of invitations the Heii-  ALU representative visited Messrs.  Reid & Young's and Messis. Hume fc  Co's respective millinery exhibition.  The impressions created upon him may  be summed up briefly ns astonishing."  ���������".':���������"   C.-B.  HCME AND CO.  At Messrs. Hume & Co's millinery  department, under the management oi  Miss   Ward,   may. be   found   a  fine,  firetty and tasteful display of tlie  atest New Yoik and Paris creations,  which excited the admiration of the  large ciowd of visitors to thestoie  yesterday afternoon and evening. The  Independent Band was in attendance  in the evening and rendered some excellent music.  The   pendulum   of   f.ishion   having  reached   tlie   extreme   limit   in     the  matter of headgear, naturally enough  starts   out   in   the opposite direction,  and  may  in   time   reach   the  olher  extreme.     Canadian   women  will, of  course" be somewhat slow to adopt any  radical change wilh avidity, thciofore,  it  is  reasonable   to   believe that the  medium   sized   hat   will lie given preference for early spring wear.   Lending authorities  wish  to  point out the  fact that in fashion cen ties thc cplored  hat or the suit hat will bc  in as strong  vogue  as  ever   this spring, and  will  offer moie scope than ever for wearers.  In connection with this it will be well  tor buyers to bear in mind that stylish  dressers  are  di if ting  from   the idea  that  suit   hats must match their costumes in color.    At present the darker  shade   of  red   is  considered   in good  taste  to   wear  with   a plum colored  gown,  while   the   golden-brown   hat,  trimmed with  many   blown   roses of  different shades, is equally fashionable,  worn with  a   green, a giay or an all-  brown costume.     Such shapes as thc  turban and tricorne will evidently be  ,very popular, and,  while making this  statement  it tis, of  course, taken for  granted that no one   expects  that the  serviceable  sailor. effect has * in   any  degree been^ forgotten.. Something in  the way of ;a-novelty, is, exhibited in  the  nieduim;sizeil.* hat. and   has' as a  brim. TKisVieffect' appears'in' what" is  looker upon as'a picture hat, as well.as  in tlie tricorne and small sailor shape.  The marquise is a high-class novelty  hat which ��������� lias been included in the  importations to America. This shape  has the brim turned up.in front in  several diffex-ent ways, and at various  angles, while the trimming appears at  the back and is massed.. It is a shap'e  that has had favor with a few leading  milliners in New York this winter, but  is duplicated in straw for spring, and  is likely to be one of. the handsome  hats for the better trade. '   -  REID  AND YOUXG.  At Reid'and Young's much time and  pains had been spent in decoration  with ptetty and costly flowers creating  a charming and artistic effect, reflecting the gieatest credit upon Miss  Shook, who presides over the millinery  pallors at this store. Here also were  to he found tbe latest and prevailing  fashions in the millinery art, as follows:  In ready-to-wear styles, common  French black sailors and Napoleon  designs, the l.itter being plain and  severe except for dress occasion when  itis richly dimmed. Large picture  hats are still in vogue, though not so  wide and trimmed much higher. The  very high and also the low, flat crowns  are fashionable, also those of any extraordinary or peculiar shape. Direc-  toire, and very small turban_styles too  are highly favored; the polo turban  often trimmed with a peculiarly large  Ostrich plume is also'.. a very favored  hat, and so is the small boat shaped  turban suited to small features.  Auteuil. Paillard, Boulevarde, Canteul  and Beaumont are amongst the pretty  imported creations. Malinc is move  favored than chiffon this spring, also  softer silks are used; the main thing  being giuizey, lacy, effects. Prince  Albert tips look ' more chic than  plumes and arc quite au fait. French  flowers are in demand and anything  in hydrangea shades is good, right  down to a deep purple; also shades  from pale pink tn Magenta. Many  Bhades are used together, often such  as red roses and lilacs, aleo three or  four shades of one color, especially in  ribbons, for that and flowers are the  principal trimmings when avoiding  expensive plumes.  Football.  On   Friday  evening   lust a general  meeting*.was : held   at,  the eily hall to  discuss   foothiiU   club matters for the  present  season.     There   was quite a  fair gathering of footballers and otheis  interested.in the sport.    Dr. Morrison  was voted to the chair and tho election  of officers for tlie ensuing year resulted as follows :  President���������-Dr. Morrison.  Viee-Pres.���������C. F. Lindmark.

Morrison, Annan,,Feeney, Allan.  The club roll was increased by four  new.'members'and. altogether the outlook of ' tho club for 1005 is a very  cheerful one. The personnel is strong  nnd negotiations for. matches are on  with Kamloops, Golden, Fuderby,  :Vernon and elsewhere. It is up to.  the boys now to practice often and  show outsiders where the "Ramblers'"  stand.  _A football match, City vs. C.

It will be understood that the  foundation of each of these soup  recipes is a quart can oi the best  soup of which you have any knowledge.    These vary in excellence.  Chicken Soup.���������This makes a delicious bisque, when a cupful of cold  veal or a can of chicken, chopped, is  stirred in, with a half cupful of dry,  seasoned crumbs. A finer soup can  be based upon chicken broth by making egg balls, such as are described  in the next recipe, and- putting them  ^nvo^tl������^'bo'ilifl^iyfSUiT~Tta^\^  a   cupful   of   scalding   milk,   stir   in  a  different, soups, such' as tomato, julienne, rice broth, tapioca, sage,  bailey, potato, turnip, etc., each of  which will repay you for the additional  trouble  it  costs you.  Pea Puree.���������Canned peas should always be 'drained and left to lie in  very cold water, slightly salt, for  half an liom* bofore they arc cooked.  This takes away the smoky flavor  which people arc apt to consider inseparable from American peas. These,  by the way,-arc as good for soup as  the French, which arc double, the  price. Put the drained peas through  your vegetable press, then proceed as  with the corn puree.  Canned Corn Purge.���������Chop the corn  vcry line, add a scant quart of boiling water and a teaspoonful of  minced onion. Stew steadily for  three-quarters of an hour after it  reaches the boil. Rub through a colander into a saucepan, add salt,  pepper, three tablespoonfuls of butter  rolled in as much flour and a tablespoonful of chopped parsley.

It had como out in tho  evidence that hn had onco held holy  orders, but hail been dismissed, liiH  living owing to somo glaring scandal; and certainly his attitude during the wearying trial, protracted  already to five wliolo days, afforded  ample evidence of his high mental  ability and  undoubted  education.  With him it. was a matter of life  or dun th. and, as point After point  of ovidnnco told heavily ag-ainst him  there was not one in thc court who  could not I'orsoo the dread verdict.

It was now half-past four-in the  afternoon, and the Court had been  sitting, with a brief interval for  luncheon,   since  eleven  o'clock.  The prisoner alone appeared cool  and collected. He had shaken off  his nervousness and dejection, and,  with head thrown well back and figure erect, he rolled off the most  beautifully ..rounded- periods, one after the other, in endless succession,  scarcely taking time to breathe.

An audible groan camo from the  jury-box, and that peculiar smilo  again flitted across tho prisoner's  face.  1"As you will, my lord," ho bowed.

It must indeed bo gratifying to those gentlemen who have boon  connected : with, the institution from  its inception, and- who aro witli us today, to seo that our total assets havo  reached over $20,500,000 by this increase of 5.1,810,000. As you know,  this has been what is called the lean  half year, yot, notwithstanding that, wo  havo been able to report a profit..at  the rate of 10 1-3 percent., per annum  on tlic capital stock of tho, bank :in  that time.

The addition to  our reserve loaves us, in round figures,  only 9130,000 more to carry to that  account to mako . our reserve equal to  our total capital. While this bank is  not mucli given to prophesying, I think  1 can safely so,y that by the next annual meeting wo will seo our reserve  and our capital the same. That will  indeed bc a proud position to have attained.     (Applause.)  it cannot bc domed'that in the general prosperity of the country we, as a  bank, musi also expand, and, while wc  arc not rushing into every new field,  the directors are carefully considering  overy point and selecting such as thoy  consider will prove sound and! permanent.* ��������� Wo have had under consideration,  and , have purchnsod a new site in  Toronto. Wo have invested in good  property tlioro aiul I am sure that the  shareholders   w  approved      of   at, '.tills   annual  will   bo  mooting.  I regret, also, that. our friend and  fellow-director, Cyrus. Dirge, met r with  a serious loss in tho death .of his wife,  and it is due. to him that-, the;- cause  of his absence! should bo' mentioned at  tills, meeting;' and our sympathy extended  to  him. e  I need not speak of tho loyalty: of-,  tho staff and general manager, for tho  general manager is as loyal to them  its they are to him, and both are at all  times loyal to tho hank.

Probably fow girls who marry nowadays over droam of connecting tlieir  futuro titlo of "wife" with tho word  "weavo." Yet the former is merely  n modification of tho latllor. anil  both como from tho Anglo-Saxon  "wofon" (meaning to weavo), in allusion to tho house linen which- at  0110 period was always made by tu  young girl in viow of hcr ninrriago.  young girl in viow of her marriage.  Our own word "spinster" is a relic of  tho  same significance.  Tho bride cako ia an institution of  extreme antiquity, lt is a relic of  tho Uomnn period, when tho principal part of the marriage ceremony  consisted in tho partaking by the-  two contracting parties of a cako  mado of flour, salt, and wator in  the presence of tho High Priest nnd  ten  witnesses.  It is known that the Jews wore*  wedding rings long before tho Christian era. Tho idea seems to havo-  been that tho husband gave his signet ring, or a duplicate of it, to his  bride, by way of signifying that ho-  deputed to, or shared, with her his  authority. It was also considered  an emblem of eternal love, as,-being,  round, it hatl no end. But a ring,  or bracelet ^soems to havo boon a universal betrothal emblem with many  early races besides tlio Jews;. Among  the Egyptians, a finger, of-iron was*  assumed by both man and woman at  betrothal, possibly symbolising thO'  mutual  SACRIFICE OF LIBIDRTY.  Gold '..monoy��������� usod to circulate inthe form of rings in Egypt in vory  early times, and the Egyptian ut  marriage placed ono of these pieces'  of ring money on his wifo's finger as*  a pledge that ho would share with,  her   his   fortuno.  The uso of the ring at weddings is-  now so nearly Miiivorsal that a British bride would not consider-herself  legally wedded without the plain-  gold circlet. It is, therefore, interesting to discover that "iii'the'country round Cadiz in Spain no ring is-  used. After the ceremony the bridegroom moves the flowers in his  wife's hair from left to right, for, in  that part of Spain, to wear a rose-  above the right ear is to: proclaim  yourself  a   wife.  The protty w"or<l "honeymoon" is  probably seldom 'supposed to hayo-  actually anything to do with honci'.';  Yet thoro is no doubt that it was  the ancient custom among the Scandinavian races to drink "mothoglin"  or diluted honey for thiry days after  evory wedding. ��������� Still more strange,  in the Island of Rhodes honey is still  a factor in'the marriage riles. After  the wedding tho husband.dips his  fingers in honey ami tvntMs a cross  over the doorway of his home before  the bride enters. Meantime the spectators cry out to the lndy. "Be always good anil sweet as is thia  honey."  AT   A   JEWISH  WEDDING*  the woman is put to  stand on*, the ���������  right   hand-.of * the" .niaii,'- iirallusion  to that-  verso    of   the ,44th  Psalm:-  "At  they  right hand   rlid   stand    the  Queen in  gold of Ophir."   Our    custom  is  the reverse of  this,   for    the  Rubric   directs  tha.t   the  man     shall  stand   on   the right hand, and      the.  woman  on  the loft. . ��������� A  The reason. is somewhat doubtful, '  but that the usual one assigned' is  also Biblical in its origin, being because the book of Genesis tolls us  that the rib which the .woman was  formed was taken o.'.it of the 'left  side of .Adam. All. the Christian -  Churches,:,the Roman and Greek, as  well as Protestant,: follow out .this  same custom. ��������� *-  Tho "best.'limn" has.plenty to do  at a modern wedding; indeed, ho  takes most of the business par.t- of  the ceremony, off the hands of the  groom. J Jut "he, too, is_ a survival,  and may thank his stars'that his lot  is cast in the twentieth century A.  Ti. instead of the tenth B.C. In  those days marriage by capture was  the savage custom of, our ancestors.  Tho groom did not Waste his time in -  long and delicate wooing, but lay in  Jvalt^outsitlo=tho=-l!Ut^-Of-=the^bi:ldo's=i=  family, antl when she fame out 'hit "  hor over the head with.a sfcoiie club  and bore her oil' in  triumph'.

He,  poor follow', hntl to hold the pans,,  and fight perhaps the entire family  of the abducted lady, whilo'his friend  reached a point of safety in soma  cave high iup  in the moiintniiis. '���������  "  This brings to mind the. fact that  the wedding veilhas an origin equally remote. The bride, -no doubt, often was woll aware when her capture had boon planned, and resorted  to the device of attempting to .disguise and hide herself by means ' of  trails of long grass, boughs, or  creepers. . Even after capture she  still clung to th'o relics of hor disguise, to show her friends :that she, -���������  had been no willing "party 'to' - *������tie ;,  rough wooing.  Rice-throwing at a wedding, .is so  far as this country is concerned, a  comparatively modern innovation.  Rice, of .course, was hardly known in,  Britain a couple of centuries' ago.  Rut the throWing -of grain of ono  kind or another is a custom of extreme antiquity, and in the days  before rico became common and  cheap amongst us it was customary  to throw over the bride a handful ol  ripe ears of wheat. The idea was no  doubt a wish for future plenty and  prosperity.  HONOR FOR A HEN.  GaiKlcrsheim, a German village,  some time since was en fete. The  occasion was the honoring of a hen  whicli had laid its thousandth egg.  Many of the houses were decorated  with flags, while in the evening the  proprietor of the hen entertained his  friertds to supper, at wfc'ch the principal dish was a gigu/ritic omelet.  The function was a sp]������������diil success,  and the health of the hoti was drunk  with great enthusiasm. u fc  ..������>.:.���������:������������������:������������������:������������������:���������  %  \  *** *���������* '** ������������������**������������������ *m* ������������������* *2**������**/M2* *J*"*  X  Fashion  ...Talk  I  STYLES  FOR  LITTLE   FOLKS.  The quesK.ui of a boy's clothes is  ���������easily disposed of, for ho is usually  taken to-a clothing store, and rigged out without further thought thuu  tlint spent in tho store���������until it  comes time for tho patching. But  the inol hei* of girls has quito another problem to solve. Tliu girl is  mother ot the woman, and thero.  must always bo a certain suitability  and style about her clothing, how-  over plain, if for no other reason  than lo keep her from thinking  about thorn. To her will probably  descend tho worn-out drosses of tho  mother which will bo quite an good  as new when remodeled, and perhaps  of better material than might have  been bought for hor in tho first place.  The Russian modes aro still very  popular for girls up to 'about thirteen, because of thoir simplicity, and  general becombigness. Tho waist is  made on a lining and should have a  blousing front, and straight back,  while the skirt has,, considerable flaro  at tho bottom, but fits smoothly  over the hips,-the fullness at tho  back laid in box or inverted plaits.  As a variation from the stylo so  much worn, the blouse may bo finished with a sailor collar, with a wido  lap-over, and a removable shield of  a contrasting color, showing at the"  neck. The sleeves are of tho bishop  order,  finished  by  narrow  bands.  Another very simple littlo gown for  which any ordinary pattern will  serve has a plain lining to tho waist,  over which the blouse body sags a  littlo all around. Thc skirt is trimmed with tucks, tliree at the bottom, antl if desired another cluster  of throe higher up. But except as  a matter of economy in lengthening  the dross, those serve no othor purpose, and add nothing to tho appearance of tho dress. The nock may  be finished with a deep circular collar that falls a littlo over the top  of tho sleeve, and is edged with some  fancy     braid,   or. trimming,   or     thej  collar may bo omitted, and the band   seIU|  LA GRIPPE'S RAVAGES.  The  Victims  Left  Weak,   Nerveless  and a Prey to Deadly Diseases.  La groppe, or influenza, which  swoops ovor Canada overy winter, is  probably tho most treacherous disease known to medical science. Tho  attack may lust only a fow days, but  the deadly poison in the blood re-  mains. You are left with hardly  strength enough to walk. Your  lungs, your chest, your heart and  nerves aro permanently weakened,  and you fall a victim to deadly  pneumonia, bronchitis, consumption,  rheumatism, or racking kidney troubles. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills nover  fail to curo the disastrous after effects of la grippe because they purify  the blood and sweep away its poisonous germs. Every dose makes  new, warm, rich blood which brings  health and healing to overy part of  the body. This is proved in tho caso  of Miss Dorsina Langlois, of St. Jerome, Quo., who oays: "I hatl a severe  attack of la grippe, tho after effects  of which left mo racked with pains  in overy part of ray body. My appetite completely failed me; I had  severe headaches, was subject to  colds with tho_least oxposuro, and  grow so weak that I was unable to  work at my trade as dressmaker. I  tr.icd several medicines without the  slightest success until a drug clerk  advised me to take Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills. I acted upon his excellent advice and the pills rapidly and  completely cured me. My strength  returned, the headaches and cough  disappeared, and I am again enjoying my old-time health. I am. satisfied that if sufferers from la grippo  will use Dr. AV'illiams' Pink Pills  thoy will speedily recover from thoso  aftor effects which makes tho lives of  so many people a burden."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure all  the common ailments duo to weak  and watery blood, such as anaemia,  headaches, sidenches, indigestion,  neuralgia, rheumatism, sciatica, nervousness,* general weakness and tho  spocial ailments that growing girls  and womon do not like to talk about  oven to iheir doctors. But only tho  genuine pills can do this, and you  sliould see that the full name "Dr.  Williams' l'ink Pills for Palo Peoplo," is printed on the wrapper  around each box. Tf you cannot get  thc genuine pills from your druggists  nnd neck trimmed with a fow rows  of the braid. It is the fit and hang  of theso littlo garments that tells  far more than any laid on trimming,  anil frequently a few rows of stitching is all that is required. Thc nock  'eshould always be finished with a bit  of lace or a little niching of chiffon  that is renewable when necessary.  AMONG  THE   STORES.  If yoii happen lo know your color  scheme for next winter, and what is  becoming in tho way of .lints, without taking into account the latest  fashion, this is the time to buy millinery,  material are the same  pricc.  A new and vory durable, as woll as  pretty, material for shirt waists, is  Llama cloth, which costs $1 a yard,  is double width, ol a firm, closo  weave, good washing quality, and  may bo had in dots or stripes, in  several   popular   colors.  Pretty lint-pins, topped with crystal knobs, or a largo pearl enclosed  in n gold coil, aro quite cheap. Thoro  are various grades in these sham  jewels.  Ilulf-inch violet ribbon, made in  four loops, with a single cross stitch  of yellow silk in the center, have  the appearance of violets, without  being really imitations. A buncli  for tho hair or throat looks well  with  a  brown or heliotrope gown.  Seven-inch' ribbon, with Dresden  flowers, apple-blossom on a grey  ground, red or brown, blue or black,  is Sl.So a yard, and a yard and a  half is just enough for the neck, with  another three-quarters needed for  crush girdle.  A very desirable fabric for upholstering is linen taffeta, which is  50 cents for yard wido goods. It  comes in solid color only, with' a  littlo raised pattern of the same, antl  is almost un-wcar-out-ablc, because  of its being all linen.  DRESS   HINTS.  Authorities have talked for some  ���������time- of- ������7i7r","cvival-of-the fringed  and shawl-shaped dolman. Whilo  one doubts the popularity of such a  garment, a loose-fitting capo coat  wilh draped sleeves is a pretty modification  of this rumored stylo.  A fashionable cloak which has distinct individuality is a welcome relief from thoso rea'dy-madc, and tho  fooling that one may not moot its  counterpart in cheap make nn'd material is a point greatly in its favor.  Sleeves are always the most .significant part of a woman's costume,  nntl just now one might well say  that "tho sleeve is the pivot of ������lio  fashion," and if one has the "log o'  mutton" style, it little matters how  the skirt and  bodice  arc made.  There aro no changes in the skirts;  they are full and that's about all  that can be said. There aro many  variations of the charming surplice  waist introduced last season.

Englishman    Points the Moral   in  the Russia-Japanese War.  Ouo of tho most distinguished  nas'al architects in tho Kingdom,  Mr. Cross-man Lawrence, writes as  follows to thu London Express, on  tho subject of torpedo-boat destroyers: "At tho outbruak of tlle War  between Russia and Japan I told  thoso of my friends who asked my  opinion that Russia had ships but  no navy, while Japan had both, lly  this 1 meant to say that the natural conditions ol llio two countries  had given to Jtipan alono of tho  two combatants tho hardy, seafaring population which is the real  Davy. Jf     thoro  bo  any   truth     in  this statement of thc case, then it  must bo also true, generally, that  tho right policy in naval warfare  must be to multiply the opportunities for tho display of seamanship  in tho available ollieers and mon.  The wrong policy must be to lock  up tho dash anil initiative of your  personnel in  big ships.  "The Russian ships, with no effectively seasoned and trained personnel  have boon counted ovor and over  again as if they could bo fairly compared wiih Japanese or French or  British ships, in foigotfulncss of  what it is that makes an engine of  war on the seas. It is on the seamen that everything depends. If  ali our own expansion of the shipping of the strictly limited Royal  navy should lead to thc neglect of  gunnery training and boat attack  among tho seamen of our great  British marine, we shall have gained  that expansion at too groat a cost  And if the increase in the size and  power of individual battleships un-  .duly_ lessens--the���������opportunity���������for-  personul initiative for our officers,  then nothing that Mr. Roosevelt  may say can justify England in  making such an increase whatever  America may do. If, on tho other  haivd, she neglects to expand hor  fleet of destroyers, she will deprive  her splendid.^ perse unci of weapons  which Japan has proved to bo just  fit for the haiftls of expert antl brave  men."                               c  BLONDES ARE WEAKLINGS.  More    Physical Vigor   Usually Belongs to Dark-haired.  Souno remarkable' conclusions upoi>  the disease-resisting ipialitics ot  light and dark haired peoplo havo  boon arrived nt b.v Dr. F. C. Sbrub-  sall, assistant medical officer at tho  Brompton Hospital for Consumption. Tliose conclusions nre based  upon figures Dr. Shrubsall has gathered with the object of discovering  how far the population of London  is influenced by city lifo.  In the British Medical Journal ho  states thnt his observations hnvo  included 1,878 hospital patients aiul  8-lli visitors, as well as several thousand  children.  Generally speaking ho finds that  brunettes are stronger than blondes.  His  figures show  that:  With each successive generation of  city life the fair element sends an  undue proportion of its members to  the hospitals.  Child patients are markedly fairer  than tho children in tlio districts  around thc hospitals.  In the earlier years of child-life  blondes are about as numerous as  brunettes, but Dr. Shrubsall shows  that disease during childhood falls  unduly heavily on the blondes.  Throughout life, blonde peoplo are  more prono to fall victims to disease than brunettes, and this loads  .Dr. Shrubsall to a further -conclus-  ion:  That diminution of stature and increase of brunette traits aro almost  certainly progressive with increased  heredity of an  urban environment.  The conclusion is based upon the  principle of the survival of the fit-  tost. Tho unhealthy conditions of  city lifo���������long hours, hurried meals,  and insufficient ventilation���������while  stunting tho growth of all, toll more  severely upon blondes, with the result that there is a predominance of  thc brunette, type.

BREAD  PEDDLERS  IN  CHINA.  FORTUNE  FROM TORES.  Orstt, in Sweden, has in tlhe"coursc  of a generation sold S5,7o0.000  worth of trues, and by means of judicious replanting has provided for  a similar income evory thirty or  forty years. In consequence of tho  development of this commercial  wealth there are no taxes. Railways  and -telephones are free, and so aro  the school-houses, teaching, and  many  other things.  At least 40 per cent, of lhe people  of London''aro attendants at public  worship.

Among tho many curious sights in  China, none presents a stranger aspect than the bread peddlers and  tlieir methods of disposing of their  wares, says a writer in the Living  Church. They carry their stock in  trade about with thorn, either in  oval boxes strapped to their' backs,  or in two boxes depending from a  yoke across tho shoulders, or- on  trays hold by a strap hung from the  neck and carried in front of thorn,  after tho manner in which the pio  man of Simple Simon fame is invariably pictured by all orthodox illustrators of 3rother Goose.  In the city of Tientsin these  street vendors offer threo different  kinds of broad for sale. Two of  those are twisted in oval shape, and  the third is a thin, crisp cake sprinkled with seeds of sesame, that magic  word which at once recalls to our  minds tlie wonderful tale of Ali Balba  and the forty thieves. How little we  over dreamed, when we listened,  spellbound, in our childhood days  to-the_lhrilling���������account~of���������Ali "Ba-~  ba's adventures, that we should ever  behold, far Joss taste, thc fateful sesame, tho name of which proved so  illusive to our hero at the critical  moment when he was confronted by  the rock of difiiculty. But the peddler's bread is not more curious  than his method of selling it, for  it is frequently disposed of by raillc,  for which purposo hc carries threo  dice,  held  in  a  little  dish.  In Pekin, tho capital of the Celestial Empire, the bread peddlers generally comefrom the-province, mostly from Shantung. They arc called  po-po sellers.     Their street cry,  "Vaochin-mantoa?"  "Can I,sell you a pound of bi'oad?"  is often heard until lato in the evening. Their bread is made of wheat  flour and baked in hot vapors, distinguished from another kind which  is baked in hot pans. They, also  sell several varieties of po-po, baked  goods, a special favorite with the  Chinese being an oval oil cake made  of the very- best flour, usually eaten  with pork,  sausage or liver..  The Jlohaminedans in China have  a reputation for good bread and  evidently wish to be known aa pure  food advocates, for in order to enable customers to distinguish their  wares from thoso of other vendors  they ornament thoir carts or boxes  with the Moslem emblem. This consists of a vase containing a branch  of tho olive tree, on the top of  which is perched the Mohammedan  cap. On each side of this design is  inscribed the motto. "Pure and truo  Islam." Theso Mohammedan peddlers also sell a kind of pate filled  with a mixture of meat, vegetables,  oil and sago. Another of their products, which is called "la shouning,  ya chakuei," is a large roasted cake  or dumpling baked in oil. Many of  these Chine1*! confections are much  more appetizingrthan ono would imagine from the description, but; like  Diner���������''How comes this dead fly  in my soup?"

A cigarette race  is tho latest novelty. On a recent  trip ttiero wero six contestants, anid  they had as assistants six pretty  girls. Each young lady was supplied with a dozen matches. According to the conditions of the race,  tho contestants had to run one hundred yards along tho upper pramen-  ado 'deck to where the young ladies  stood in line; The runners carried  uulighted cigarettes in their mouths,  and the chief object' of tho race was  to get the cigarettes lighted with*  the aid of the ladies at the other  end of the course. The man returning first to the starting-point  with his cigarette burning was the  winner. ITie contest looked simple,  and doubtless would have been, if  any of the ladies had known how to  light a match. Striking the matches on dock was prohibited. No  match-strikers were allowed. Thoy  had either to strike the matches on  thc soles of the shoes, or to light  them as the average smoker usually  does. The woman who helped her  partner to win resorted to the  schoolboy 'trick of lighting tihe  match by exploding it between her  teet'h.

Towards  A great deal depends on tho point  of view. A good temperance woman was led, in a very peculiar way,  to revise her somewhat harsh judgment of tho poor devil who cannot  resist his cups and slio is now tho  more charitable.      She writes:���������-*.  "For many years I was a groat  sufferer from asthma. Finally my  health got so poor thnt I found I  could not lie down, but walked the  floor whilst others slept. I got  so nervous I could not rest" anywhere.  . "Specialists told me I must give  up the uso of coffee���������the main thing  that-"!���������al way s tl i o u g*h t ga vc~me  some relief. I consulted our family  physician, and he, being a coffee  fiend himself told ine to pay no attention to their advice. Coffee had  such a charm for mo that in passing  a restaurant and gelling a whill of  tho fragrance I could not resist a  cup. I felt very lenient towards  th'i drunkard who could not pass  the saloon. Friends often urged me  to try Postum, but I turned a deaf  ear, saying 'That mny do for people to whom coffee is harmful, but  not for me���������codec and I will novog  part.'  "At last, however, I bought a  package of Postum, although T was  sure I could not drink it.- I pro-  pared it ns directed, and served it  for breakfast. Woll, bitter as I  was. against it, I must say that  never beforo had I tastetl a moro  delicious cup of coffee! From tlrnt  day to this (moro than 2 years) I  have never had a desire for the old  coffee. My health soon returned;  the asthma disappeared, I began  to sleep well and in a short time I  gained  20  pounds  in  weight.  "One day I handed ray physician  the tablets ho hatl prescribed for  me, telling him I had no use for  them. He stayed for dinner. When  I passcid hiin his coffee cup ho remarked 'I am glad to see you were  sensible enough not to let yourself  be persuaded that coffee was harmful. This is the best cup of coffeo  I ever drunk,' he cantintucd; 'the  trouble is so few peoplo know how  to make good coffee.' When he got  hi������ second cup I told him he was  drinking Postum.

Concurrently -with   the   announcement that the new provinces, carved  from   the  Territories,-are   to receive  ample financial  assistance, another is  made, to the effect that the "general  question of "Better Terms" for all the  provinces  ma5T   be    considered,   riot  British  Columbia alone,    but^ "my  province" as Sir AVilfridXaui'ier designates it and those inhabited by other  people.   What does this mean?   Simply that every word, every sentence  uttered   by   the premier's emmissary  Mr. Tweedie, of New Brunswick and  the Minister without;baggage���������Senator Templeman,  were absolutely untrue; that the statements were made  at the coast, to influence the elections  and republished in all the Government  newspapers throughout this province  with the same design.    At all events  the granting of Bettei* Terms to British Columbia is postponed, while Senator Templeman chuckles in his sleeve  and   fondly hopes   that   he may  be  offered the vacant portfolio of Interior.  The same as to the promised "duty on  lumber-': it is as far oft'  as ever, and  yet hundreds of   conservatives  voted  for a Government candidate under the  ^JhBPt-ession that something was to be  done   to   save   a   struggling industry  to protect it against ������3,000,000 worth  of rough lumber sent in from the United  States.     Of course. Mr. William  Galliher has no time to look after the  interests of British Columbia or that  of any of   his constituents.    The electors   were   willing   to  be cajoled and  duped  and   must  accept   the  consequences.    Mr. Galliher, for the limited  number of   times  he   bn- been in the  House of Commons this session, from  ���������what we observe in the daily press of  Ottawa,    is    devoting   his    energies  towards inducing a   majority   of   the  members to support a measure having  all   the  ear  marks of  an obnoxious  trust or monopoly���������the Ottawa Electric  Light Bill, promoted for the purpose   of   enabling   those behind iL to  control the stocks of the Metropolitan  and Consumers' Companies. It means,  if  passed, squeezing   the   earnings of  the poor, taking from their pockets a  few   dollars   that  should go to their  families.     It   is   a local  bill,  but no  member could be found to take charge  of it���������hence Mr.  William Galliher, a  lawyer and  a member of parliament  fills   the  breach '.     Consequently, the  interests and aspirations of the Province he is supposed  to represent'will  find no champion  in him, unless during the spare moments preceding prorogation.  in  the pursuit of office, he seized the  opportunity   of    violently   attacking  Conservatives,   because   they   endeavored   to do justice to the minority,  under the finding of the Lords of the  Privy Council, introducing to parliament what is  known as the Remedial  Bill.   All will remember the extreme  agitation inaugurated by the so-called  Liberals; all will  recall the denunciation of a Conservative administration  for, as it was alleged, "coercing Manitoba."     These  were   the palmy days  for advocating Provincial Rights, and  this burning question was kept before  the public from 1801'to 1S9G. "Conferences took place .between'representatives of the Dominion 'and..Ministers  bf   the   Crown  for Manitoba, but no  agreement could be arrived at.   Manitoba had conducted educational institutions from 1S71 to 1S90, pursuant to  an enactment guarjuiteeing'separafe  or denominational schools to the Roman Catholic population.   Iu 1S90 this  law was  amended,   Free   or  Public  Schools being substituted for tho system   hitherto  existing.     The British  North America Act provided that educational privileges by law or practice,  enjoyed by .any   class  should hot he  taken from them.    After much litigation,   the   Government   of  Sir  John  Thompson, Sir Mackenzie Bowell and  Sir Charles Tupper decided to submit  the whole question to the Lords of the  Privy Council, the finding  being that  the minority was entitled to consideration.   Iu deference to a long respected custom, with reference   to educational legislation,   which came under  the   class   of  subjects peculiarly controlled by the Provinces, the Government of  that day refused  to disallow  Provincial  Legislation.       Day   sifter  THE WHIRLJ-GIG OF. TIME  Sir Wilfrid Laurier sowed the wind  ...:,.,1      Mntl  day, month after   month. year~after  year, Sir Wilfrid Laurier persisted in  denouncing   "coercion," promising, if  placed   in   power   to remedy the evil  within   six   months.     Meanwhile hb  co-religionists   were duped into massing their forces.     The anti-Protestant  cry was raised, they were nsked how  it could lie expected that Protestantn,  particularly   Orangemen, would   ever  extend   fair  play to Roman Catholic**,  and  when  the general elections took  place in 180(5, almost a solid   phalanx  was   elected   in   Quebec   Province to  support Laurier, while  the  hierarchy  suddenly  transferred  their allegiance  to   him   and   the Conservatives were  defeated.    What followed?   A Liberal  government���������now a thing of the past  ���������was   in   powor   in    Manitoba,   and  throughout  had   done   all    in   their  power   to complicate matters, by refusing   to   accept   terms offered  and  suggested by  Commissioners appointed to   confer   with  them.   When the  Laurier   Government   carno  in, but a  few   weeks   elapsed  before an understanding wa.s arrived at, and in 1807,  the Greonway administration amended  the net of 1800, guaranteeing certain  privileges to the minority���������then  Mr.   Clifford   Sifton,   who  had  been  attorney general for Manitoba, accepted the portfolio of Interior under Sii  Wilfrid and the happy family appeared   to be   progressing in a most amicable   manner.     Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier  informed his   "compatriots" that he  had got more for   "his people," than  t-httv would  have  been    vouchsafed  under tlie Remedial hill, whilo strange  to   say,  Mr.   Sifton   declared   to   his  Brandon constituents lhat in no manner had   the   Greonway government  departed from the principle of public  schools.    A mysterious and very significant incident  occurred, about the  peiiod of the Lauvier-Greenway settlement, namely a visit to Canada hy  Monsignor  Merry del Val, a brilliant  member of  tho   Papal  staff, aud it is  now alleged that he induced the hierarchy  to accept  tlie  terms, while on  his part Sir AVilf rid Laurier solemnly  promised   that when the North AVest  Territories   were  granted autonomy,  he would see to   it. that the minority  was vouchsafed ample protection, that  probably two  Provinces   would    be  created   and denominational  schools  would   be   the    first    consideration.  Hence the introduction of the Autonomy   hill,   the  guarantee of   immense  financial provisions for each Province,  with  every  privilege.,   the  minority  could possibly demand, carefully preserved  and   vouchsafed.   Sir AVilfrid  Laurier's plea is that "The Territories"  were given separate schools, under the  "Territorial"  act  of  1875, and therefore  come   within the scope of "Provinces" mentioned in tho 03rd section  of  the  British   North America Act.  The Hon. Clifford Sifton, strongly dissenting, at once resigned his portfolio,  while the Hon. AV. S. Fielding, Minister of Finance, has signified his intention to  retire, providing  Sir Wilfrid  insists upon  the  financial terms mentioned   in   the proposed act.    On the  other  hand   the   lion.   Charles Fitz-  patrick,  Minister of Justice, and the  Hon. R. AV. Scott, Secretary of State,  both   threatened   to  resign,   if    any  changes were made in the educational  clauses of the North AVest Provinces  bill.     The   proposed   legislation  was  considered some weeks ago by a subcommittee of council. Sir AVilfrid Laurier,  Charles Fitzpatrick, R. AV. Scott  and Sir AVilliam Mulock, three Roman  Catholics   and   oue Protestant, while  the   educational   clauses   were  never  discussed in   Council, before   the Premier   introduced   the   hills  to Parliament.... Jn.. f.'ict..31i'._J3aukain.  the  Premier of tho North \VcstTcrritories7  states over his signature,   that even  the   sub-committee  did   not consider  thcm, nor   was   he asked  to give an  opinion one way or the othor. Stranger than all--Sir Wilfiid Laurier introduced the   measure   to   ihe Commons  without consulting Afr. Sifton, or  Mr.  Fielding andTn their absence.    AVhen  the Territorial Act of 1S75 became law  there  were   not more than 100 white  settlers   between   Manitoba   and   the  Rocky   Mountains:   since     then   the  population   has   increased   to   nearly  400,000.   a   very   significant majority  being opposed to  any extreme legislation   in   favor   of  denominational or  dissentient  schools.     This   objection  does not alone come from Protestants,  for thousands of  Roman Catholics are  convinced   that   their children derive  greater advantages  by open competition  in  public schools, knowing that  battle cry of the hon. gentleman in  1S0O was "hands oil Manitaba. There  shall be no coercion under Laurier.'  The slogan of the day raised against  the exercise of a coercive but constitutional power should ring today iu  thunder tones in the ears of those  from whose lips ib then resounded."  Mr. Borden closed by moving:  "That all the words afler the word  'that'to the end of the question hu  loft out and the following substituted  therefor : upon the establishment, of a  province in the Northwest territories  of Canada as proposed by bill number  00 the legislature of such province  subject to and in accordance with the  provisions of the British North America, Acts ISi'w to 18S0 is entitled to and  should enjoy full powers of provincial  self-government including powor to  exclusively make laws in relation to  education."  they can stni~^i"jlTy^gWJd~feiigions  training and example. It is naturally  asked why Sir AVilfrid purposely  avoided re-enacting the separate  school ordinance now existing in the  Territories and, as well, why, if as he  says the minority is absolutely satis-  lied with the Manitoba settlement, he  did not adopt it for the new Provinces.  He has certainly pleased himself and  the country in an unfortunate position, for the general demand now is  that the entire educational clauses of  his bills should be eliminated.  HANDS OFF TIIE WEST!  Mr. Borden, leader of the Opposition  in the Dominion House, replied on  Wednesday last to the Hon. Sir AVilfrid Laurier on the educational clauses  of the Autonomy Bill. He delivered  a masterly address, his strong fort  being the discussion of constitutional  clauses. Mr. Borden declared that  education was assigned to tlio provinces and that any necessary agitation in respect to educational rights  and powers should bo confined to provincial limits. That was the true  solution of the question. "I believe  firmly," said Mr. Borden, "lhat if this  question had been left to the people of  the new provinces they would have  dealt justly and fairly with tho minority. But wc must nob oppress or  coerce any portion of tho people to  provide safeguards which have no  warrant   in   tbe constitution.    The  Dyking Assessment Act passes  Second Reading after a Prolonged Discussion���������Bowser's  Resolution worries Liberals.  The past week has seen some  lengthy and acrimonious discussion in  the House, and a great deal of com*  mitt oo work. As regards the latter  tho bill to amend the Assessment Act,  after prolonged consideration aud a  number of important amendments in  the interests of settlers, was reported  complete with amendments in committee of the whole on .Wednesday.  Tho principal subject of discussion  throughout the week, however, was  the Dyking Assessment Act, which  was hammered at day aftor day, until  it triumphantly passed ils second reading Friday, by a, vote of twenty-one to  thirteen, or a majority of eight���������the  largest yet secured by the government  this session, and a very satisfactory  proof of the conviction of the House  that the measure, while it may need  some pruning in committee oh account  of reasonable representations made hy  numerous delegations .from the districts effected, is in the main both fair  and necessary.  The prolonged and bitter discussion  over thc measure was due to the attitude taken by Oliver (Delia) and  Munro (uumm-iicKj.r "i'licse gentlemen  adopted from the first a position of  uncompromising hostility to the  government over the bill. It was  difficult for the listener to disentangle  anything direct from the prolonged  floods of stump-oratory with which  thoy favoured the lIon.sc���������unless it  were that thoy considered it an outrage that the farmers should be askod  to pay anything to the country- for  having had dykes constructed in their  districts. Mr. Oliver, in particular,  was especially virulent; forgetting  himself so far on Tuesday as to deliberately accuse the government of heing  in league with "a gang of land-speculators."' Called down for this on  Thursday by the Premier in a magnificent speech. Mr. Oliver had the  hardihood to deny having used the  expression���������but his memory (or something else) was out of shape, as your  correspondent, who was in the press-  gallery at the time the accusation was  made,"can vouch for the above being  the exact expression made use of l'by  the^mernber for Delta.  r������sroppasiTTu*ir^^^  nnd their supporters in the provincial  press, have been making great capital  on this "land-speculator" cry,   it  may  be as well to  mention  what kind   of  people were   referred   l.o   under   this  opprobrious    term.      They    consist,  practically without exception, of men  who have sunk large sums  in a vain  effort to reclaim and render cultivable  their lands, and who, being at  length  drained of tbo necessn.iy  money, antl  unable to wrest a   living   from   their  property, have been   forced   to  cease  residing on it personally,  in   order to  earn ix  living  elsewhere.     Now   the  government is attempting fo so adjust  legislation on the subject  that   those  persons, as well as those farmers still  resident on their properties, shall  not  bc unduly burdened by tho necessary  measures to secure   a   return   to   the  province of some portion of the enormous sums which the governmentcon-  trolletl    dyking   operations   have   involved.  Tho position, therefore, of these so  called "land-speculators" is simply  that of any other farmer, who, being  unable to make his farming pay, has  to come into town ami hire out on  some other job until times art; mended, or, as in th'iH case, public assistance  of somo sort is directed to the reclamation .or other improvement, (if his  lands which ho has uni the capital to  set:urn for himsolf. Thero are plenty  of such eases iu almost every fanning  community, hut this is the lirst time  these viciiins to misfortune have heen  held np l.o lho public scorn a.s crimiiij  als. or tbe government that tried to  succour them -accused of being their  accomplice in crime.  Vet Jlr. Oliver and Jlr. Munro���������  farmers both, and extremely wealthy  ones at that���������think  it  uo  shiuuo tp  brand these men, who have done their  best for themselves and the country  while their money lasted, as fraudulent rogues who should he forcibly  deprived of the lands on which they  have spent many thousand of dollars  of thoir own money. It is a typical  Liberal attitude in its rank injustice  and its callous intolerance of undeserved misfortune.  Both thesa two wealthy agriculturists, however, wore subjected to a  tremendous slating by the Premier  for thoir attack on their less fortunate  brethren. Jlr. JIcBride's speech on  Thursday was nut merely a masterpiece of political oratory, hut it was a  conciso and careful exposition of the  merits and objects of the bill in hand,  and it scathing condemnation of the  men who, to make a little political  capital and to evade tho payment of a  few paltry cents per acre justly due to  their province, could both revel in  false charges and public premeditated  mis-statements,-and urge the imposition of greater burdens on thoso who  had been less fortunate than themselves. Jlr..McBride did not spare his  opponents, and, by tho timo he had  finished a long and eloquent speech,  even the iricpressiblo -member for  Delta was reduced to the condition of  tho men who had not a. wedding  garment.  Of the effect of the Premier's remarks the largo majority by which  the bill passed its second reading  Friday was ample evidence. Tho  speech was one of the most notable  delivered in the House this session,  and it is to be regretted that space  dues not permit of a more detailed  account of it.  Another striking example of the  well known tendency of the Liberal  party to harass and distress the  masses of the people by unnecessary  and unduly restrictive legislation, was  exhibited in a couple of proposed  amendments to the Game Act on Friday. The first of these, was a motion  by Jlr. Oliver to prohibit the shooting,  killing or trapping of game on Sunday.  As the average man, ��������� whether clerk,  workingman or employer, has no othei'  day in the week in which he can get  out into the country to fill his lungs  and procure a little wild meat, the  hardship which Jlr. Oliver coolly proposed to inflict on a large and respectable section of the community can he  easily estimated! The amendment  was promptly defeated.  Immediately there uprose Jlr. H.  Tanner (Saanich). He was not so  much concerned, he explained, with  thc preservation of the Sabbath as he  was' with tlie'preservatlon tit the game  and, with the latter end in view, ho  (Continued on page Five)  ^tytytytytytytytytytytytyty^tytytytytytytytyty  1 SPRING TAILORING I  C R USSMAN'S imported  Spring Goods aro here,  aiul most of tliem are  marked olT and have been  passed into slock.

Many of the up-  country members are actively engaged in assisting the deliberations of  the Government with the view of'-facilitating early action iu the matter.  Prominent among these is Mr. Shal-  ford (Similkameen), whose constituents have no reason to complain of any  slackness on tlieir member's '-part to  further their interests by doing all in his  ���������power to secure the better opening-up  of the enormously rich countrj* he  represents. ��������� -  Mr.  W-, ��������� J.

"Companies Act, 1S97.  Harold Nelson in Richelieu.  The performance of Eichelieu by  Harold Nelson and his company at the  Opera House on Thursday last was  well attended- and afforded an excellent evening's entertainment. As  Richelieu, thd all-powerful 'Cardinal,  and one of Mr. Nelson's strongest  characters, this popular actor thoroughly impressed his audieiice. The  *5forceftil=natiire^and^aEl^eJi}ciful_ciin-_  liinjj of Ihe old mini, who, to the lust,  kept one eye on his enemies and one  on himself, was throughout a clever  impersonation. Clifford Lane Bruce  (Adrien de Miinpiat) entirely ingratiated himself into*1 the hearts of all  who watched his career and liis trials,  and added another leaf to his laurels  in this city. Ml: George Anderson's  Haradas was a "heavy", role and well  sustained. Once moreAVns. Yule, as  Brother Josepii, caused much mirth  by the droll and clever handling of his  role. His announcement was novel  aud original and nothing if not funny.  As Julie de Mortimer, Jliss Helene  Scott acquitted herself well aud pleased her audience much by her graceful  and clever work. Of the rest of Ihe  company, of whom space forbids us to  particularize, wc miglit add that they  ��������� carried out their several roles in u  manner calculated to do. credit : to  themselves and the company of which  they form uo small part. .On Friday  night the company again presented  Paul Kiiuvui'.- As on the preoeeUing  occasion this drama met wilh the success which hard conscientious work  and taicntcombined will always merit.  Realm of Science.  A design for relieving the "congestion <  and increasing the capacity of the '���������  terminals nnd trains running over  Brooklyn bridge is being suggested by  our American cousins, viz., a large  circular revolving platform al, eitlier  end of. tha bridge and a continuous  flow of * eight trains, around and  around. Tho edges of each platform  form chords of a circle, each being  the lengthof a car. As tins cars meet  the revolving platforms they would  lock with it and without stopping  discharge the passengers. At the cen-  "tve of tlio platforms, where tire speed  "of revolution in about one mile per.  hour, are exits and entrances down a  spiral staircase to the street holbw.  Thus an endless chain of cars is formed  which would run continuously, *  with the uiiaitimoti** conueut of the Council.  Received the assent of the electors ' .    dav  of April, 11)05.

I wonder if anybody would be kind enough to shoot  rne if I asked them politely! This  is the la.st time T shall talk about  anything but the weather lo iny  partner at dinner! What an ass I  have  made  of  myself!"  He went iuto the drawing-room  afterward in  fear and  trembling,  but  came, anil the look of fear wa.s intensified in her expanded eyes.  He drew a little nearer nml look  the hand  that hung  beside hor.  His touch seemed to recall her to  life and the realization of what his  words meant. With a shudder which  she could not repress, she tore her  hand from hia and shrank back.  "Mo���������no!"   she  breathed.  His faco grew paler, and an ugly  gleam shone for a moment in **is  light eyes.  "No?" ho murmured. "Surely,  surelv, dear Irene, you cannot mean  thai���������that you will not he my wife!"  "Yes, yes," she replied quickly,  with intense earnestness, as if to imply that her answer was final and  complete. "Thnt is what I mean!  Oh, I could not; I could not! Do not  ask    me���������do not say any more!"  He    stared  at  her,   ns  if  too     as  Irene     smiled  upon  him   and     made | touudod  by her  presumption  in     re-  room   for him,     and,   with   the     arl, j fusing  him���������the carl���������to  be angry,  which   women  learn  in   their  cradles, j     "I  don't     tliink   you  know     what  drew, him on to tulk of Royce again. I you   say,.    Irene,"    he said   at last.  Tt was the most delightful evening  everybody declared. The carriages  were kept waiting some half-hour,  for the guests wore loth to go; but  they went at last, and Seymour,  standing on the hall step, looked  after them with a sinister smile.  "No more dinner parties or parties  of any sort, until I have got her  safo," he muttered. "I suppose her  head will be completely turned by  the  flatteries   of  these fools."  But. when, after taking a sip of  brandy, ho returned J.o the drawing-  room, he found Irene standing by  the ti replace, her head resting on her  hand, and a sad thoughtful expression on her face instead of an elated  and  triumphant one.  "I thought you had gone to the  smoking-room," she said. ''Mndam  is  tired,  and has gone to  lier room."  "Quite right," ho said. "No; I  came back hoping to find you here.  I trust you are not sorry lo see me,  Irene?"  and he  smiled  tenderly.  She looked up at him absently.  She was trying to decide whether or  nol she should tell him of what sho  had heard of Royce, and ask him  to take up his case.  "Sorry?" she said. "So; why  phould I bo? Are you nol going to  have  a  cigar?"  "Xot yet," hc said. "I have something to say lo you, Irene dear,"  and he came a little closer and stood  beside her, leaning against the mantelpiece.  'Do you mean to tell mo that you  did not know I loved you, <*and  meant to propose to you?"  "Xo, no, I did not know;- indeed  ���������indeed, I did not;" sho breathed.  "It is not true," he said almost  loudly. "You" have played the coquette and led me on; yes, even to  the last. Do you say that you did  not guess- just now what I was going to say to you;?"  "I did not." she said indignantly.  '.'I���������I thought you were going to  speak of Iloyco."  At tho mention of his name tlie  red died away from Seymour's face  and  left  it palo almost  to  lividity.  "Royce," he hissed; "Royce! That  is thc key to the business. You are  foolish"���������he nearly said "fool"���������  "enough to love liim! That vagabond and scamp!"  For a moment Irene staggered under his open brutality as if he had  dealt her nn actual physical blow.  Tier eyes closed and her lips quivered; then sho drew herself up ancl  seemed to  look down  at. him.  "How     dare    you!"  she      panted.  "IIow dare "  then her voice broke  nnd she hid her fnee in her hands.  It. was ar. if hc had torn tho veil  from her heart and shown it to her  in ull its nakedness. Then she looked   up.  "Uoyce  is  not  a    vagabond   or     a  scamp, and none know it. bettor than  speak���������do    not  yourself.

She put her hand to her throat, as  if she were suffocating, and left the  room.  ���������������������������  Seymour wiped his perspiration  from     his    face;      the    room   seemed  lie pulled up short at sight of the  tall figure in evening dress and uttered an exclamation; then ho touched  his cap:  "llcg pardon, my lord, but you  gavo mo rather  a  fright."  Seymour camo forward with' some-  11 thing appronching his bland smilo  on his face.  "Let mo see who you aro."  "Oiles. second groom, my lord."  said the man with a kind of suppressed eagerness, and he got off tho  horse and touched his cap again.  "I've been to Mnrkhnm Fair to buy  a  horso for  tho  farm,   my lord."  "Ah, yes," snid Seymour. "I hope  you have bought a useful one. Goodnight."  "Yes, my lord," .-.aid the man;  then, hesitating, ho said: "lleg pardon, my lord; but���������'but I wns coming  up to the liouse to sire your lordship  In lhe  morning "  "Vos?" said Seymour blandly.  "Arc you in any tro'ible? If so you  arc quite right to como to me, Oiles.  I nm always ready to assist or���������er���������  at least sympathise with those who  are consigned by. Providence to my  caro."  "Yes, my lord," said Oiles fal-  teringly. ' "But it isn't that, my  lord. I ain't in no particular trouble as I knows of. It's Master Itoyco  my lord."  Seymour started. It seemed as if  he were doomed to bo haunted by  his  brother to-night.  "Well?" he suid harshly. "Wliat of  him?"  "I've seen him, my lord," snid  the man, lowering his voice to a  whisper. "Yes, worse luck', I'vo  found him, my lord."  CHAPTER XV.  Irene went upstairs slowly until  she had gained the corridor, then she  ran as if she almost feared that  Seymour was pursuing her. Trembling, she stood in the centre of tho  room, her hand pressed to hcr bosom, her eyes dilated as if with fear.  She could not think of the scene  that had passed in the drawing-  room, without a slvJdder. q  In a few minutes a strango sound  reached her. it was liko,a sob or  a moan. She listened and heard it  again. It seemed to come from the  countess'  room.    Could she bo   ill?  Notwithstanding her dread of meeting Seymour again that night, she  went to the door, and unlocking it,  listened. All was silent, but she  could not rest under the fear that  the countess was ill, and alone; and  very softly, yet 'quickly, she went to  the door and knocked.  A minute elapsed beforo any response came; then the countess" voice  said:  "Who i.s tliere?"  "It is I.��������� Irene, madam," said  Ireno. c  The door opened and the countess  sLood with her hand-lump raised  above her head. .She was still dressed, but in that instant Irene saw  the Landon diamonds lying in a  heap on lhe floor, as if tho countess  had     torn   lhem  off and  flung     tliom  Irom   her.  "What is the matter?" she asked.  muKing down- nr. -Irene's pnicr xiou-  bled   face.  "I���������1. thought I heard something.  Let me come in,  madam!"  Tlie countess stood aside, and Ireno  entered. and, crossing the room,  knelt and picked up lhe diamonds.  As she rose she staggered a littlo.  She was exhausted by the mental  strain she had undergone���������and the  countess put her arm around hor.  "You   are  ill.   Irene,"   she  said.  I "Is���������Is this true?" came from the  | quivorihg lips at lust. "Are you  | suro it is  true?"  |     "It is true!    I will answer for    it  j with  my lifo,   every   word!"   respond-  ! ed  Irene,  sinking  on her knees     and  j winding her  white arms around    tho  countess.      "Vou      will   forgive   him,  you   will  tako him  back?   Ah,  I seo  you   will?   Think,   dear,   ho  may    be  wandering   about     the   world   penniless,  perhaps hungry and ill."  The countess put out her hand nnd  let   it   fall      trembling   on      Irene's  I head.  Hush���������hush!" she murmured brok  enly.   I���������I    cannot   bear  airy     more!  I  jlf it be true,  then  j     She   slopped   suddenly  and caught  j her breath.  ! "Yes, Irene, he must come back!  My heart is breaking with longing  lo see him! My boy, my boy," sho  sank into a chair, and it wa.s now  Irene's turn to try and soothe and  calm. The outburst of the mother's  yearning  was  almost  terrible.  "Oh, d������m"t cry so!" murmured  Irene, "lie calm, dear. Wc will  find him and bring him home, nnd  then wo will all be happy! Oh to  think of having Koyce home again!  He will forgive us and you will bo  happy onco more, dear. Let me  stay anil help to undress you? May  I stay with you all night? I should  love to! Wo shall not sleep, perhaps, either of us; but we can talk  of Koyce,  dear Hoyce."  She put her arms around tho  countess and kissed her lovingly,  and was beginning to unfasten the  lat'o around her neck, tho countess  submitting, when a knock was heard  at the door.  Doth women, started, and the countess rose and dashed the tears from  hcr eyes as it afraid lest her weakness should bo seen by a second  person.  "Who. can it be, madam? Louise,  the maid?" c  "No, I have sent her 'to bed,"  said the countess in a low voice.  Then she said aloud,  "Who is there?'  "t. Seymour," camo the response.  "1 want to aee you for  a moment."  The countess laid hor hand upon  Irene's arm to reassure her, then  went and opened the door.  Hc started as he saw Irene, and  stood silent for a moment. His lace  was llushed, and woro a .thinly-veiled   expression  of   triumph.  "Forgive me for disturbing  dear mother," he said. "But I  just heard important news  Royce."  Irene caught at tho countess'  Seymour  glanced  at  her,   but  addressed   the countess.

"I can understand your reluctance  to credit such infamy, even on the  part of Itoyco; but I have i't on  good authority.

(To be Continued.)  THE SEPARATOR.  While tho merits of tho farm separator are quile generally understood, dairymen in many sections  fail to properly appreciate tliat it is  .invariably applicable to their own  {individual conditions, aivd that to  every one separating creani l'roim,  milk it offers a means of better awl  more satisfactory results, says L.  P. Martiny.  The a'dvantagos of tlio farm separator over the gravity system are  too numerous to give a full or extended enumeration, but those, of the  most importance arc, niiorc perfect  separation, greater value of skiim  milk, saving* of time, and labor, saving of ice and a better quality of  butter.  Under the best methods of deep  setting, it is rather dillicult to keep  the loss of butter fat in the rfkim  milk -down to three-tenths of 1 per  cent., which will mean a loss of .?60  in a head of twenty cows, each giving 5,000 pounds of d* per cent, aitillc  per annum. This is a vcry .conservative' estimate, for if we wero to  take the average of all conditions  th'rouigivout tlie stato, the loss would  be about twice as great as I 'have  estimated.,  Progressiva dairymen, as a rule  are aware of the atlvlantagos* of the  centrifugal separator over lhe old  process and coni.pariatively little  mil Ik is being skimmed in that way,  1110.91 Wisconsin dairymen delivering  their wholo milk to the creamery, causing a farm separator and delivering  the  croam^{o   the  creamery.  Thu point that will most interest  tho average dairyman is the advantages or the farm separator system  of creaming tind then delivering the  cream to the creamery, and I wish  to -discuss it from this standpoint.  -J-"7Ej" PRfNOIPAl/ ADVANTAG FS  of the farm separator to the ptttrons  of the creamery are increased value,  of S'liim milk, saving in cost of hauling the dairy products, less expense  in making up the butter, a smaller  awl less expensive creamery plant,  aired a possibility of better butter  product.  T hnvo named these advantages or  tho fanm separator system in their  value of importance, although there  may be a great many exceptions 'to  this enumeration. For instance,  the lessening, of thc cost of deliveiv  ing the dairy products to some dis-  'tant creamery may be of greater  value than the increased value of thc  skim milk, and there may bo other  conditions that would change U*e  order of the advantages of the farm  separator. '  Users of'bhe farm separator find  one of their greatest advantages in  having warm, sweet, skim milk,  fresh from the cow for calves, pigs,  and other feeding punposes. With  sepnrator skim, milk there is mo  scouring, or other digestive trou-  |b>es, with calves, aivd this- oiivc point  is not fully appreciated, for this  trouble impairs the futuro usefulness  of  our  cattle more  than  -we think.

With a  herd of twunty cows, giving one  hundred thousand pounds annually,  this means a cost of $80 to get it  delivered to the creamery. In delivering cream, it usually costs about  one-half a cent per pound of butler  fat, which means one hundred thousand poun'ds of milk testing four  por cent., or four thousand pounds  of butter fat, that iho cost will bo  SS20, a saving* of S60, aiftl very often  the creamery man hauls the cream  himself free * of charge, because ho  can reach out farmers from his factory and haul a larger quantity of  butter fat to his factory, in the form  of creani, compared with what. he  could haul in the form of mi I Ici, and  thereby increase the business of his  factory.  The man who delivers croam to  tho creamery should receive more  per pound for butter fat tlian* the  man who delivers whole miilk, -because he has saved the creamery  man the expense of separating the  milk, which means that hc does not  need as large and expensive a crowni-  ery, loss high-priced machinery, less  help, awl less expense in running Uio  factory. As a rule, the m,an who  delivers creani should receive about  one cent per pound more for his butter fat than the man who delivers  whole milk, because in connoolion  with the less expense in Ihe making  of (he butter tho creamery man suffers none of tlio loss of fat in the  skim milk, whilo there is always a  loss of fat in the skim milk of tlio  man   who  DIOL/IVKRS WIIOI,13 .Ml LlIC.  The possibility of a better butter  product is vcry evident from the  fact lhat the. dairyman has a less  volume .to euro for, there is less fill'h  in the'cream to hasten ferniuntalion  than there is in the whole miik, fermentations in the milk go on more  slowly in rich cream than in wliolo  milk, and the cream docs not. need  to bo heated at the factory, as -does,  the whole milk, \yhieh. ���������n-os,o**s cannot" ~bl!t"h*fls>i'en fermentation.  One of the objections maido to the  farm separator is the first cost, but  whon wc stop -to figure on the profit there, is in the investment, tlio  cost is not worthy of much consideration, beside that they must be  well mnde of the very best muiterial  and tho best workmanship to run  well and lie durirble at thu high rate  of speed  at which   they must  run.  Some crcamerymeii object, to tlie  in traduction of tho fni'm separator  at first and condom.'n theni iu a  great many ways, but ns a rule,  they object lo them, because they do  hot care to make preparations for  'handling lhc cream or it generally  eomes in in too small quantities at  first. It necessitates different apparatus for testin'g ami more work  for the coiirparalively small amount  Dwindled.  Agnhi stoinc object to the use oi  the farm separator on the claim. Uml  butter made from farm supumtoi'S is  not of ns good quality as that lutidu  from whole an ilk. The cause of tho  poor buttor is not in the use of the  farm separator system, but in tho  aibuso in not taking proper cure of  the cream, not delivering the cream  oflc.n enough, nnd not keeping Ihe  separator cleaned. Right lroro is  where a groat many shortsigh'tvil  separator agents have done a lot of  harm to th\: system by claiming for  :thi*ir_ri>sprr.liyu_m-cichi_nes   that   it   is  Unnecessary to wash I Irom moro than  onco a day, and sometimes not so  frequently. If there is any milk  utensil tl.at needs wasiiiing it. is lhe  bowl of the separator.

"='"  With Courtesy Many Have Opened  the Way to Fortune  and  Fame.  Although courtesy, like honesty, Is  always the best policy, it ranks  among tlie many virtues which must  rest content wilh being their own  reward. So brusque havo American  bocomo with the rush consequent on  tho rapid development of the nation,  that it is but nu turn 1 a man whoso  manner is- one of thoughtful attention to the pleasure and comfort of  others should hero most easily pavo  the way to .success. Hut, with tho  cunturios of leisuro and cultivation  of Kurope. it seems strange that polished manlier should bo luokod upon  on the continent as octlasion for exceptional favor, yet, on more than  one occasion sinco Walter Kaleigh  soiled his cloak with thu mud of a  London street that his queen might  avoid a pool has au act of politeness  been tho magic key which opened tho  portals to fortune,  and oven  fame.  In France, the land of excessive  politeness, if'there be one, ono of its  most brilliant statesmen of to-day  owes his brilliant career to a simple  act of politeness to a woman. M.  Doleasse began his working life as  uii obscure and poorly pnid school  teacher, and won C.'ambctla'ii favor  by the grace and courtesy with which  ho presented him with a hamper of  Ariego beans, of which the great  Frenchman  was fond.  THIS PROSAIC INCIDENT  was the first turning point in young  llelcassc's fortune. Gambotla invited  htm to dinner, and wus so pleased  with his intelligence that he procured for him the post of privalo  secretary to a wealthy deputy.  One day wlien the secretary wits  travelling by train with tho deputy  and his wife he observed that the  latter was much annoyed by an ill-  bred passenger, who persisted in  smoking in lier presence. M. Ilel-  casse's aclion was characteristically  prompt. Without a word ho sei/.od  the man's cigar and threw it out'of  tho window.  I''or that act of courtesy tho woman, when her husband died shortly  after, rewarded M. Helcasse with hor  hand and witli the fortuno that liar,  made  his   brilliant  Career   possible.  One ot the leading advocates at  (he French bur owes his present position to a similar act of gallantry.  In tlle early '80s, when ho wus a  young clerk in Paris, "passing rich"  on tho equivalent cf S200 a year ho  wns travelling from Orleans to Paris  when he hoard screams proceeding  from an adjoining compartment.  WOM AN 1 'ItOVES WF.ALT11Y.  Opening the carriage door he ��������� proceeded along the footboard to tho  compartment from which the sounds  proceeded, and saw a young woman  struggling in tin* grasp of a powerful  and well dressed rulilan. Springing  into the compartment, the clerk seized the rascal, and after a brief tussle * pinned him on tho floor of the  carriage, where be held him until tho  train slopped and he could l>o given  inlo   custody.  Tlio young woman proved to bo  the orphan daughter of one of the  wealthiest, nicrehanl's in I'aris; and  lier gratitude to her 'deliverer mado  it an easy matter for liim to nsk  for her hand in marriage. Four years  later he was called to the French  bar, and to-day there is uo position  in Franco to which hc may. not legitimately  aspire.  'FAVOltS TO f'OOU.  ���������Only a few years ago a poor solicitor's clerk in lho city of London  was amii'/ed and incredulous lo learn  that a Miss Scale had left him a  sum of $100,000 for "great kindness  shown to her in a time of poverty  and distress." lie treated Ihe mailer  a.s a joke or an unhappy mistake  until, on taking tlie news homo to  his wifo, .she" reminded hiin that  Scale wus the name of a poverty  stricken woman who had somo years  before occupied a room in tho samo  house as themselves and whom they  had occasionally assisted with food  nnd  fuel.  It appears that, nome time after  tliey had lost sight of lier the woman-had-como-into_a_liirgo_ fortune   on the death of a bachelor undo  who had neglected hcr during his  life; and her first act had been to  make a will leaving large sums of  money lo the few people who had  been kind to her in days of need.  CRIPPLE'S KINTOCESS.  A few years ago a shabbily dressed and feeble old mnn entered a  crowded omnibus in London, but  looked in vain for a seat. Not a  single passenger wo-;ld move until a  crippled girl rose from a corner seat  and insisted ou the old gentleman  taking hcr place. In vain he protested, for she walked out of the  omnibus and nio'inlod the stairs  lending to the top, although it was  a  blustering  day  in winter.  When she left tho omnibus later  the old gentleman joined her, and,  after - thanking her for her great  courtesy, asked for her name and address. Kvery week for more than a  year the girl, who supported an invalid inoth'er by. making artificial  flowers, receivedr a sovereign neatly  wrapped up in an envelope, and left  by-a messenger who'', declined to say :  who .'.Karl sent him; and soon after,  the "weekly sovereign ceased to come  came the news that their mysterious  benefactor had left the girl an an-'  nuity of $500, payable during her  life and that of her mother, "ingratitude for a touching act of kindness  to an old man."

Tlie nose, larynx, trachea, bronchial tubes, lungs, and air cells aro  all included in the respiratory tract.  Any nu'eclion of these involves, moro  or less seriously the whole breathing apparatus. For illustration, a  growth in the nose has caused asthma which lins disappeared upon removal of tho foreign body. Then,  I.oo, an inllaininatory condition of  the bronchial (jibes i.s liable to shut  o!Y tho uir from certain regions of  the lungs, writes Boo. J. Fisher,  M.  r>.  Talking about the nose���������why i.s it  bost to breathe through it rather  than the mouth? Thero arc nt least  three good reasons: First, it purifies  the air, that is, the fine hairs in  tho nose strain out the particles of  dust. Second^ the air has a longer  passage to travel lo get to the  lungs when inhaled���������cold air* is irritating. Third, by virtue of tho samo  reason tho air is moistened by contact,  with  the  mucous membrane.  Tho next question that is asked  naturally is, why do we breathe?  Thc maintenance of lifo depends upon  tho absorption of oxygon and the  excretion of carbonic acid gas. Tho  lungs in this process aro only tho  medium of exchange, that is, they  provide tho oxygen nnd carry away  the poison. The blood is the medium whicli carries to the various  parts of the body aud gathers up  the poisons and turns them ovcr to  thc lungs for elimination. Therefore, the absorption of oxygen is  dependent not only-upon the lungs  but the blood. If Iho latter is not  rich in red corpuscles the blood is  not able to take up the oxygon, no  matter how much of it is supplied  fcy'the  lungs.  Why do we need oxygen? To produce heat, to assist in the process of  nutrition. Thero can bo no combustion without ozygon. This it is  that makes  tho fires of life burn.  Why is deep breathing valuable?  Not because it supplies more oxygen  to the blood. For thp blood may  be gelling more oxygen than it can  take up in an ordinary inspiration.  In fact, men can live with ono lung,  and many arc living to-day with  such a handicap and are well and  getting enough oxygen. Then why  breathu deeply? The greatest value  of deep breathing is the effect upott  abdominal circulation. Thc diaphragm  makes  larger  excursions  up-  successive crops, so that from start  to finish tho disease may extend over  a period of several weeks, or ovon  two or threo months. A second attack is fortunately not common.  Thore is littlo to do in tho way of  treatment except to allay irritation  nnd protect tho blisters from rubbing by dusting them with oxid of  zinc nnd s.tareh or sonic other bland  powder, and covering them with a  layer of absorbent cotton kept in  place by a bandage or strips of adhesive plaster. If there is much  itching, frequent mopping wilh spirit of camphor or a .solution of menthol in alcohol is useful. Tlio intensity of the pain usually diminishes  when the eruption comes out, but  before this limn and if it persists  later, some anodyne remedy may bo  needed, or relief may bo obtained by  tho  application 3of  electricity.

Of all the breeds of swine raised  from the distinguishing characteristics of unconvoliness up to the dignity of a breed, and creatures of  beauty, there i.s none thnt can lay  higher claims to great antiquity  than the largo Yorkshire. From a  very remote period there existed in  Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, in England, a class of hogs thut were  noted for their great r.ize. A very  early authority, Morton's cyclopedia,  describes it as "one of the largest  breeds in the kingdom, and probably one of the worst; extremely long-  legged and weak loiiied.- long from  head to tail; color chiefly whito,  with long, coarse, curly hair; tolerable feeders, yet yielding coarse,  flabby flesh of inferior marketable  quality," Sidney snys thut "it was  long coming to full size, and could  he fed to 800 pounds." They had,  however, one randeriiig characteristic, us thoy were prolific and the  sows   wero  excellent   mothers.  Harris,Who wrato a good deal on  tho subject considerably moro    than  colts, the result, of his own ex-  periunco, and some of them could bo  adopted in this country with much  benefit.   He says:���������  "Growth and development, ability  to shift without the milk of the  mare, rather than tho attainment of  a certain age, should bo tbo test of  fitness for weaning, for somo foals  are better able to bear tho separation nt four months than others at  seven or eight. Something depends  on constitutional vigor and precocity  but more on the manner in which  mare and foal have been treated  sinco the birth of the latter. A  suvero chock nt weaning timo is seldom compensated for by any amount  of good treatment afterwards, and  it Is most essential that when separation is determined on the colt  should be lit to bear il. The best  preparation    for weaning, i.s to tench  foals  to  cat  brnn  at  a  vcry     early,      , , .  ���������   , ,    -  age.

'  causes  a  greater  blood   supply.  Then, too, the aspiration of the  lungs affects tho circulation. Thore  " is a great suction in the veins. Tho  lungs no doubt are a factor in this.  If a vein is opened the air is allowed to enter, death occurs immediately. If then tiie heart is dissected air  bubbles are found in thc right auricle of tho heart. In tho next place,  deep breathing fills up all the air  cells in the lungs, enters thc apex of  the lung which is its weakest part,  supplies more blood and makes it resist disease. Again, deep breathing  strengthens the respiratory muscles,  and also, if done properly, helps to  bring thc thorax in its proper position, and enlarges its capacity, giving the organs of circulation and  respiration   freedom   to   work.  I notice again tliat because a man  has a good chest expansion is not  evidence that ho has a good capacity. I note, too, that because he  has a good expansion he is not in  a position to flatter himself upon  the fact of being a proper breather.  I notice in the third place that a  large lung capacity- is not necessarily an indication of what we commonly  term  "good wind."  Many men have wondered what  second wind is. The nearest to tho  truth tliat.'wu have with regard to  the physiology of second wind is  that it is a matter of blood pressuro.  If a man runs in a short clash we  find there is great bloo'd pressure,  hi.s arteries are contracted and tense,  nnd the blood is forced bnck upon  the heart. Thus in the early part of  a long distance race this condition is  present in a less marked degree.

SHINGLES.  This is a'curious alTection, neeming-  ly a disease of the skin, but really  ono of the nerves, and even thought  by somo .'doctors to be an cruptivo  fever -analogous to measles or scarlet  fever. ,.���������.-''  The disease attacks children and  young Persons especially, but the  middle-aged and oven the very old  are not exempt. The characteristic  feature is an eruption of blisters, resembling cold-sores, covering- only  one-half of the face or tho bdclyj  very rarely passing beyond the middle line in front. Preceding the appearance of the eruption for a few  hours or days, or 6ven..a week, thero  is usually moro or less severe pain  of a sharp neuralgic character, limited quite distinctly to the part whero  the blisters aro to form. This pain  varies 'considerably .in degree, from  a mere uneasy sensation to an almost unbearable stinging neuralgia,  being of slight.'-intensity, or practically absent, in the very young, and  increasing with the years. It is limited as a rule'-to the parts whero  thu eruption is to appear, but  in some cases it is more general, the  skin over a wide area being painful  and very sensitive to the slightest  touch. .There is sometimes also u  fever  of  mild  degree.  Tho eruption begins quite suddenly  and progresses rapidly, Tliere appear first a number of pimples irregularly grouped in tlie midst of nn  area of reddened skin, nnd these soon  develop into firm blisters with a  thick skin, in. nppenranco exactly liko  cold-sores.

But let their  relatives bo what they may have  been in the past, and are at the  present day, the improved Yorkshire  has many redeeming features and is  universally popular in England and  Canada, and any place where first-  class bacon is in demand.  The improvement of this breed began more than a century ago. Like  some of the breeds that are coarse  nivd hardy, thi.s ono wns not improved by a cross of the China hog.  Whilo tho China cross gavo the appearance ot refinement and reduced  the size, it nlso reduced the vital  energies, and animals crossed nn'd  rofin'Od in that manner aro loss hardy  than those having none of the alien  blood. It is claimed that the Whito  Leicester hog was used to improve  the. Large Yorkshire.  The leading characteristics arc thc  white color, great size and adaptability to various conditions, being  good graziers, and, at tho same lime  capable of doing well if housed and  fed. They are very prolific, perhaps  lead all the breeds in this respect.  While the faco has been greatly  shortened, dished and broadened, the  loin' strengthened, and the general  appearance very much improved,  they still stand on legs of considerable length. Tho quality of the  meat is such that whore its iqualities  aro appreciated, it sells for an extra  price.  . It is distributed to nil parts of tho  'CiviHzeflA^jvprld, Canada. __Uni ted  States, At^t^a^^S^r^^Zcaland;  European countries, Brazil and tho  Argentine Republic.  Its value as a cross under certain  conditions "is recognized. Crossed on  the fine-boned breeds, the size is increased, general vigor improved, prolificacy retained, and the quality of  the meat for bacon consi'deraoly advanced.  SHEEP  NOTES.  Breed the best ewes to the best  rams.  The way to, keep ideal sheep is by  trying to  improve them.  Sheep are always improving or  they  are   deteriorating.  An uneven lot of goo'd sheep are  better than an uneven lot of poor  ones.  Stationary troughs and racks are  not 'desirable in  the sheep  stable.  Ewes will produce larger and better lambs if in plump condition at  time  of  mating.  At weaning, if possible, the ewes  should be placed in a field out of  hearing of the Iambs.  It is well to place the owes on  short pas-lure for a week or more  after the lambs aro weaned.  _ jSh_ccp_._are easily managed,���������aro-  first-cl.in.s fertilizing machines, gootl  farm scavengers and yield two harvests  annually.  In fattening sheep, especially punctuality in feeding should bo strictly  observed.  In many cases, Rafter the corn i.s  laid   by,     the   sheep  may he  turned  growth nntl development, and render  separation work possible at an early  date, but will enable them to maintain their condition und go on improving when they lose their* nntur-  .al nutriment and the society of their  dam when weaning time comes  round. Even in tlio case of thoso  mares whose missions in life is  breeding foals, and who nro not  wanted for work, a prolonged association between tho pair i.s not desirable, sinco the brood mare is  wanted to breed regularly every  your, and suckling a foal, carrying  another, and living on grass are not  calculated to be of much use to tlio  mare or to.her prospective offspring,  however tlio plan may suit the sucker. Generally speaking, neither marc  nor foal derives any material benefit from remaining together fori  longer than six months, and, if they  have received decent treatment, the  foal ought to be fit to 'fend' for  himself at that ago."  TOULTRY ON THE FARM.  Many of our progressive farmers  are beginning to realize that fowls,  if well selected and properly cared  for, are tho best-paying stock on  the place, but 'there are a great many  farms on whicli the fowls do not receive near os much attention  thej* should, writes R. 11.

Not so very long ago a certain  weokly paper stated that Britain's  explosive mines wero under the  charge of ordinary Government laborers earning $9 a week! To anyone who knows anything at all about  fighting Dtitain, tin's is an absolute  absurdity.  Strango stories were also told by  tho periodical under notico of attempts made by foreign spies to  penetrate tho privacy of these  mysterious mines.

It is a fact that thore aro numerous mines in the Thames, ono of  them boing in tho vicinity of Black-  friars. It is supposed that an in-  nocont-looking cellar at the basement of a tradesman's shop is the  entrance to this, particular mine,  but tiie tradesman Is not aware of  this, nor does he'know who rents his  cellar, or the true naturo of the  operations carried  on  therein.  HOW THEY-ARE PROTECTED.  At tho further >end , of tho cellar  is a door, so admirably mndo that  it looks like a portion of the brick  wall, and it opens upon a circuitous  passage which lends to a secret  uhniutiur irom where the mine is controlled. The chamber is about eight  foot.square with ' wil if.*? stono walls.

Standing on the banks of the  River Tiber is a curious looking  fort. Within it is a staircase which  leads to an -underground strongroom, bounded on two sides by the  river, whero tho jewels of Italy's  King nre hidden. In tho event of  war the fort can be removed, and  the approaches to tho secret vault  entirely hidden. Only the King himsolf and two or three of his Court  know precisely where the strongroom is situated.  UNDER THE DANUBE.  The -Bulgarian jewels arc hidden in  a castle which stands on the banks  of tho Danube. It is guarded by a  small army- of soldiers, but not oven  tho officers know whore the jcw-c-ls to  the value of Sj,000,000 nre hidden.  King Edward and Queen Alexandra do not wear real gems very  often. For safety's sake they wear  pasle jewels wliich are exact copies  of tho valuable originals. The real  stones repose somewhere in tho recesses of Windsor Castle, and are  carefully guarded by the finest detectives of the day, who reside in the  Castle  ns   ordinary   ollicials.  The Crown jewels in the Tower of  London nro similarilv protected, but  in tho event of a hostile army and  navy attacking our shores, they  would possibly bo taken to Windsor  Castle and hidden in the underground stron*g*-rooms there.  Thore is nn old law still in forco  which states that those persons  through whose carelessness any of  the Crown jewels might bo stolen  shall be put to death. This law,  which would not bn carried out now-  a-days. was made to prevent trcastm  on the part of  tho guardians.  from tho fields with grasses, weed-j ter of the mine.

'-  if a radical change in the rations  i.s made too suddenly, growth of  body and fleece is liable to suffer a  check.  In some localities at least sheep  should be= looked upon as auxiliaries  in keeping up the fertility of the  land rather than a  means of profit.  Fowling in sheep husbandry i.s  like any other problem in live stock.  However good the breed, without  good caro and feeding they must  necessarily  degenerate.  In mixed farming there i.s enough  goimg to waste on every farm to  almost -maintain, a -flock of' sheep,  which would be  lost without them.  Sheepm independent of wool, arc  worth more than their cost in what  they do for thc farm and in the  incnt  they  furnish.  Tlie ram needs to be changed every  two years and fresh blood infused in  the flock. All things considered, a  three-year-old ram is best when  breeding   to   improve.  The production of lambs for market, especially on farms convenient  to market, if conducted with intelligence, cannot fail  to  be profitable.  Wool is a product from feeding  just the same as fat or flesh, and  the flock should be fed and managed  with a view to wool growth, and  that of fine quality.  WEANING   COLTS.

Standing in ono of tho American  naval docks is a vessel called the  Vesuvius, lt was secretly constructed some years ago to clear any harbor mines in a few hours, and only  -a-dozon-chiofs-of-the-American-Nai/y  are aware of the contents of the  hold, which i.s secured by means of  ii double-locked 'steel hatch. Within  the hold is machinery which works  an npplinncc similar to a mud-  dredger, clawing ..the mines and  their .shore connecting gear out of  position and rendering them useless.  It hns been tested times out of  number with unqualified success, and  it is believed thnt. nothing yot designed in the shapj of a .submarino  mine could possibly escape it.  In the event of the Vesuvius being  unable to 'approach a mine and use  its dnylgos, speeinl dynamite cartridges havo been designed which, upon being discharged from tho bows,  explode at nny required distance,  and cause the explosion of the. mine  at the same time.  Another of Uncle Sam's secrot war  weapons is in ironclnd specially do-  signed for ramming. The Ham, as  the vessel is called, is practically a  mass of steel, witli hardly any ac-  coininiodution beyond that set aside  for her engines and crew.

Some new nnd interesting light is  thrown on the lifo story of ajfoman  ���������who passed so successfully as a  man that she entered the army as a  medical oflicer���������by an article in the  Christmas number of the "Cape  Times," says tho London Daily  Mail.  Tho case of this woman, who was  known in tho service as James Barry  M.D., is mentioned in "Fifty Years  of Public Service," a book recently  published by Major Arthur Griffith's.  'I'he writer in the "Cape Times" sets  forth Dr. Hurry's autobiography, the  manuscript of which recently came  into   his   possession.  through Ireland a little while back,  when he was accompanied al a respectful distance by as many newspaper correspondents as would bo  sent out to a big war, the King  took the exceptional course of sending a message out to the delighted  journalists, saying that he had read  most of their spocial accounts, or  nt least as many of them as he  could, and wns greatly pleased with  the way in which the work had been  done.  There appears also to be in modern times only one occasion on  which the Sovereign has publicly  used the Press for liis personal convenience, and this was Dy King 1-Jd-  ward . in September of last year,  when he thus showed his realization  of the Value of the Press as tho  surest and speediest vehicle for tho  transmission of a message to his  people. - His Majesty had just been  to Doncaster races, where hc had  been accorded a specially enthusiastic reception and when he camo  back to London again he sent tho ,  following message to ' the newspapers: "The King desires that it'  should be made known through the  Press how grateful hc wa.s for the  splendid reception hc received ati  Doncaster." This was a small  thing in  its way,  but  IT MARKED AN EPOCH.  His Majesty i.s a great newspaper,  reader, and even an up-to-date journalist would have difiiculty in exhibiting greater knowledge of tlie  salient features not only of the  English papers, but of those of the  Continent also. He can tell you the  names of the daily papers published  in all the big towns and cities of  the Continent, and in most cases tho  details of their policy and the names  of the editors. When in England  hc goes through at least one daily  paper every morning, often through  several, nnd frequently a Continental journal i.s submitted to a short  scrutiny. He i.s usually attracted  by special articles concerning himself and hi.s doings, and ho rarely  fails to read the report of any really  big political speech which has been  delivered  the night  before.  The    King     always  tries   to  make  ceiltilu   ot   tte-ivr   im.ooIms;   Bering   cm*y-  thing in thc papers which he thinks  he ought to see, either about himself or about any of the numerous  objects aixi movements in which ho  is interested, such as different charities, the visits to him of his foreign  friends, and so forth.'  Ic--.������ould, however, bo plainly difficult for either him "or-his secretaries to make a sufficiently closes ~"  examination of tho whole of thc '  Press every day to ensure this being dono with any degree of thor-  ougluiess.

I  The Theatre  On Monday night the Russel-Davis  Stock Co. opened their first engagement here*in- the*- Opera.House with  "The Punkin Husker," which met  with the approval of tlie somewhat  small but appreciative audience. Ou  Tuesday was presented''-^A-Friend of  the Family." The attendance on this  evening was somewhat better, though  not '.what' it should Have '$eeh.L The  individual acting. of * the i members of  the company * and": Che -bright songs  and- dances between the acts, left  nothing to be desired tind Stamped the  company as being thoroughly capable.  On Wednesday evening *'A Gambler's  Daughter" was played in the usually,  cleverand finished style which marked  the performances of the two previous  evenings. The company is a good  one and from the rise of the curtain  on the first act to the end, there is not  a single pause.  Tonight will be presented "Autumn  J^ayes.^amLbuing^Jiouse should  greet this talented eompanylr^"-'   Not only are the Ladies Aid arranging for a liig sale of work on the 18th  but a program, which will be unique,  is being prepared for thc evening. The  "Nation's ]<air" gives promise to not  only be profitable for tho "Aid" but to  be a most interesting event to the  public. The Ladies' Home Journal  Booth, under the direction of Mrs.  Creelman nnd Mrs. Dent, will bo a  work of artistic excellence and itself  worth a visit to the Fair to see.
