It may suit the part of the  partis.m politician to cast discredit  upon himself, as well as upon others,  by cndeavoi ing to belittle the work of  the Legislature to which hc belongs.  My colleagues, and I can, however,  look with confidence to the people for  a very different verdict, having kept  the welfare of the public and the  interests of tlie Province" carefully to  the fore."  These sentiments were expressed by  Hon.   Richard   McBride,   Premier of  British   Columbia,   and   published in  the Vancouver News-Advertiser. They  are  practical,   manly    and   full    of  common sense.   They are the opinions*'  of oue who, Province born, believes in  the   people, trusts   the people, has no  secrets    so     far     as     the      people  are concerned.    The language is tliat  of one who desires to do his duty and  will-do it, irrespective of ungenerous  criticism  or the   effect, it may have  upon him politically.     We believe the  electors of this  Province understand  Richard   McBride, and .are convinced  that  lie   desires to do what is right.  Tliis being so, how."unjust the attacks  of  so-called   Opposition   newspapers.  Of course.there'dre those who imagine  that" no   legislation   is   effective, - no  measures -beneficial, unless some parT  ticular hobby ii they   believe in or are  interesr'ed.inV forms-'tlie cential figure  of,-Proviucuil ^legislation   or,', brings  grist"'to'Ttlie rniill they, are operating.  The very fact'that the_present-admiiV-  istration is grappling with issues other  governments   deliberately   avoided���������  should be proof positive * of   sincerityt  And -yet,_there_are-scorespf .sensible  people, 'who   aie misled by  specious  statements,    assertions,���������call     them  what "one may���������to the effect that the  recent session was "barren of results."  Why so ?     Because   the Government  refused  to   be   bullied?   Because  the  Government stood asadamant between  grafters and the public domain?   Here  is"just where Liberals and Conservatives   can   find   a   common   camping  ground.     Here   is just where honest  men can coalesce, irrespective of party  affiliation.      Because    the     Provincial   Government   w,is   faithful   it is  pilloried and abused  by the very men"  and the very  newspapers that would  have condemned them had they bowed  to   pressure  and  acceeded   to   eveiy  demand made by various corporations.  Is this fail?     Is it reasonable?     Is it  logical?  Again, the McBride Government has  been   condemned, for not being more  The Ticket df Leave Man.  On the evening of Victoria Day,  May 2-lth, the"' Amateur Dramatic  Club' will again present the splendid  four-act drama "Tlio Ticket of Leave  Man."

Department Store  progressive. What Government has  done more, with a limited revenue ?  True, millions of dollars might have  beeu expended: what would that mean?  That a Government countenancing  such a policy, was recreant to its  trust and only adoptad.it for the purpose nf retaining power. ������  Do the electors yearn for such a condition of affairs? or, do they appreciate, are they willing to appreciate and  approve   of  such   measures   as  weie  ciystallised   into   legislation   by Mr.  McBride    and    his    colleagues,   and  approved   by   the   Legislature?     For  instance���������personal taxation, taxation  of hook debts, equitable assessments,  and  above   and   beyond  all,   timber  licenses.as well as education���������all these  industrial  and  domestic  issues were  dealt  with  in" an honest, straightforward and practical manner.   It must  not be   forgotten that' the  Dominion  Government has   violated   its sacred,  pledge.that should Sir Wilfrid Laurier  be  sustained    in   November,   1004���������  immediate action would be taken with  reference   to   "Better   Terms."   This  pledge was violated, will remain violated, until   the  Province of  Quebec  puts     its      foot      down,     calls      a  IuiId    and    organizes    a     hold   up.  Hence   we have   nothing to say  of  thc   Hon.     Richard" McBride     that  is  otherwise    than    generous.     We  speak in   no spirit of  adulation, but  simply because we   believe that the  man   who   has   displayed    sufficient  ability to grapple with many intricate  local  and  domestic    questions,   will  when  circumstances demand   it, r Ee  equal to a greater occasion,  "I       ,  SPORT. ...  -, ~S,       ..*.  ��������� a-i -; Ai -.(.  ,       BASEBALL. -"    '-U.'      -  A" splendid' practice was held, on  Saturday and. the team should be in  good' "shape -.by the '2ith, when, it "is  expected they will 'journey to Golden  to play the.first match of the season.  ���������. -.

Japanese Threats Against  France Not Regarded Seriously at St.- Petersburg-  Japan Grows Pompous  St. PETEiisnuito, May 10.���������The  Japanese threats against Franco are  not taken very seriously heie. The  Russian luithoiifics continue to main-1  tain that Admiral Rojcstvensky'has  not overstepped lho limits of neutrality. In view of the excited slate of  the Japaneso over the possibility of  the fruit of their previous land and sea  victories being swept away, Japan's,  protests are considered quite natural,  but her mandatory attitude towiud a  chivalrous country like France is re  garded as a blunder.  While Great Britain is expected to  support her ally and.secure fair play,  should the Japanese press France too  far, Great Britain, it is said, cun be  counted upon to use all her inllucnce  to calm the statesmen at Tokyo. The  interests of Japan would not. he served  according to the opinion here, by an  extension of tho hostilities, unless Admiral Togo is beaten, iu which case it  is not doubted thut Japan will use the  pretext of French violation of neutrality to demand the fulfilment of Great  Britain's obligations as hor ally.  The opinion is held in some quarters  that it' is exactly ,this contingency  which Japan has in view. All the  newspapers discuss the subject, tho  Novoe Vremya very sarcastically picturing Japan] as the great dominating  power of the world, laying down the  laws, issuing orders and ' making of  Rojestvensky a veritable oullaw.dri ven  from place to place at JapauV bidding  and poor Rojestvensky, the paper continues, weaiied, and not "knowing  where to go, remains wheie he is."  " But why does not the great Togo,  who knows so w'ell where his enemy  is anchored, attack him and thus end  all; complications ? That; would be  bettei'-JLhan/ -placi ng - au'Lembargo i>on  French ships.-nnri , lnorc.simple than  bonibaiding the ports of France in In-  do-China. Japan has growii, very  pompous.- -Her .frown inspires Ihe  world with awe, but" it - is - passing  strange .that. Rojestvensky has not  been seized with the universal fright."  . The Novosti says -France did well  to come to an understanding with  Great Britain in view of the danger  which threatens Indo-China, whicli  the paper insists is so imaginary.  " From the beginning," continues the  Novosti, " Japan has clone everything  in her power to exhaust France's  patience and force her to take  dangerous step, and until now Fiance  has .bhowu tact and moderation.  Japan may desire to draw in France,  but this is impossible in view of Great  Britain's reserve."  Wined and Dined.  One of   the   merriest  evenings ever  spent around   the   festive ' board   in  Golden was that: of Wednesday la.st in  thc Columbia Hall, when  Ilie stall'of  the Columbia River Lumber Company  entertained a large number of tlie citizens iu honor of YV. li. Robertson, who  has severed  his connection with that  company and   embarked   in business  fdr himself  at   RovelMoke, wheie he  has opened   a real estate ofllce, and in  doing so has taken  with hiin all lhe  good   wishes of   tho peoplo of Golden  although sony to  see him  leave our  midst.    Mr. Robertson has been a true  citizen of Golden in every sense of the  term, and   we   vetituie to say he w ill  pi ove equally  true to the interests of  the city he  has   chosen  for his future  home botli in matteisof business and  sport.   .   .   .

Wiknipeo, May 9.���������Tlie Kree"Press  says:   A week ago several prominent  contractors   from  the   east   and   the  United States were-iTfthe city-iiifd'it  is learned they were  in consultation  with C. P. R. ollicials  with  regard to  a, contract for taking over the Maintenance of Way of the central division.  At the present time  the Maintenance  of 0000 miles of western  lines entails  an annual expenditure of approximately $1,000,000, and if the contractors  are able  to see their way clear to do  the work at a satisfactory figure, it is  thought the C, P. It.- will accept the  bid.   This,  adds the Free Press, may  be the company's reply  to the trackmen who are  known to bo restive and  to be demanding more wages, under a  threat  to strike.     If the plan be put  into operation on  the whole western  ���������lines a large number of laboring men  will be  involved.    The summer staff  on   these   lines   is   10,000  men, all of  whom would be dismissed.   The plan  has been tried on a small scale on some  railroads   in   the   United   States, but  never  ou so  large a scale as the one  mentioned   in "connection    with   the  0. P. R.

The Toronto Globe states that doom  awaits the present Dominion government if it continues,to fly ,in tho face  of public opinion^ and intimates that  the belter class of Liberals will turn it  down. Coming from the-Globe, this  means a gieat deal,- but the present  domineering attitude of the Laurier  government is nothing new. AITgov-  ernments, when they think they have  the cinch, owing to a large majoiity,  invariably \5ecbme tyrannical, ar.d lhe  people are compelled to step in and tie  their hands in older to save the coun  try.���������Fernie Ledge.  Accidentally Shot Himself.  WiNNIl'Eu. May !).���������.l.-iine.s L-iwrie,  a prominent, farmer, for 30 years in  Morris district, was found dead this  morning by his hired man. It is  believed that Lawrie went goose-  hunting and that liis gun was accidentally discharged, killing him. He  was a native or Whitby, Out., where  hia wife is non' visiting.  and after an  exciting and  well contested   game,   victory  crowned  their  efforts,   by    one    goal    to    nothing.  At the last moment it was found  tliat  some of the tegular players could not  accompany the team,   aud   this,   together with   the fact that   the  game  was to take place away  from home,  made many people doubtful as  to  the  result.    Kamloops won  the  toss and  pl.iyed   with   the   wind   (wliich   was  blowing almost a gale), in their favor,  Kamloops attacked, and it  looked a.s  if they were almost certain  to score,  but   tlnir.ks   to    Revelstoke's   strong  defence,   which  was almost   impregnable,     their    elforts     were     futile.  Checking   was  of   a   very    vigorous  nature, but was taken  by  both   sides  good   naturedly.    In   the first    half,  owing   to   lhe   heavy   wind   against  them,   Revelstoke   played  a   strictly  defensive   game,   checking   their  opponents   closely.     At   half   time the  wind had ceased.  to  that Revelstoke  did not gain the advantage that Kamloops enjoyed in the first half.     Upon  resuming play Revelstoke came away  with a lush and almost scored.   After  some pietty passing   on   both  sides,  Robertaon secured the ball and racing  down    the   right   wing,     passed ���������' it  over to Le Feaux who shot for goal,  which   the   goalkeeper    fisted    out.  Doinildfon then secured the  ball  and  parsed to "Allen   who   shot   it  right,,  through, thus making tbe only goal -  of the match.   It was   a  clean   exhibition   of   football,    there, being   no  evidence   of-foul   or .-"ungentlemanly  piny.     Games like_ this are. bound  tn  win-popularity.

At  Jills stage of tho war it is interesting to note what the losses have beon  Ito both belligerents in men, ships and money, and the total is almost an  f-.ppalling uiio, Not including this Inst buttle of Mukden, it is estimat-  I'd that the tolul killed and wounded on both sides, by land uud sea  lighting, wns 240,000 men. divided this wny: Japanese. 115,000, Russians ll!."i,000.

Hove tho  pntiont in bod, and rub the chest  thoroughly with hot sweet oil (any  oi' will answer, either hen's, goose,  or skunk's), then sprinkle on the  powdered lobelia, and cover with  a flannel saturated with hot sweet  oil. To keep in position, it is wise  to place a flannel bandage around the  entire body. If it should happen to  cause nausea, it could bo removed,  but otherwise it is best to let it remain undisturbed until the soreness  has disappeared. This remedy is  used in pneumonia, vvith excellent results.  For an ordinary sore throat the  home remedies are often the most  effective. A camphor gargle is ono  of the best. To prepare, put a tablespoon of granulated sugar in a  tumbler, and drop on it six drops  of camphor. Add a littlo water and  stir thoroughly, then fill up tho  glass with moro cold water. Use  as a gargle as often us tho case demands.  A gargle of alcohol and warm  water is also excellent for a sore  throat. Prepare each time the quantity you need for one gargle. One  teaspoon of alcohol to threo teaspoons of water, is a good proportion. Have the water as warm as  you'can conveniently use it. /  Sago tea and alum is another valuable gargle for .cankered sore throat,  .while for simple irritation borax and  water may be used with benefit.

Crying is tho universal language of  babyhood, tho only, means that babies have by which lo express their  desires, discomforts and emotions.  Poverty of vocabulary is compensated for by tone and volume of sound;  and theso qualities are soon modified to sucli an extent as to become  distinctly expressive of-entreaty, persuasion or command. J---"-���������-  Persistent crying always indicates  something abnormal; nevertheless, .it  is not so often a sign of hunger as  tho mother is disposed to infer. Tho  hungry babe stuffs its fingers into its  mouth, and its cry is fretful; but the  snimc actions may denote soreness of  the mouth or throat when food is  ���������refused, nnd headache or earache  when tlio brows aro knit and thp bead  is tossed from sido to sido. A hoarse  cry is caused by dryness of the vocal  cords that may accompany an oroin-  ary cold, croup, diphtheria, and  othor affections of the larynx. The  cry is never loud in painful nrections  of the chest; in fact, it is usually replaced by moaning. When crying follows tho coughing of bronchiti'6, it  often signifies thc supervention of  bronchopneumonia, and the doctor  should _bo callod at once. Squirming  and kicking attend thp crying of  painful conditions of the abdomen.  A voiceless cry denotes great weakness, except when the sound is sup-  prcssed_on. account of_pain-or-hoarse-  noss. Tearless crying, after the  fourth month of age, generally reveals illness. When rhe infant cries  upon boing picked up. thore is usually tenderness duo to rheumatism,  pleurisy, rickets or scurvy. Pressure  ovor different regions discovers the  sensitive area.  Tho cry of fear in nn older infant  Is short nnrl loud; thc eyes remain  open nnd aro turned towurd tho  source of danger, while the fnco becomes palo nnd tho body trembles.  An angry child also becomes livid  through holding its breath. To thc  pampered child crying becomes a  hnbit; even young infants learn to  cry for the light, to bo carried or  rocked, and sometimes, apparently,  merely for their own declaration. It  is, of courso, possiblo that a sudden  piercing cry at night may indicate  some serious trouble, but it is more  likely to bo nothing worse than indigestion, or .nervousness.-;-;-''*.-'"'.

Among the many nautical  mysteries which have been the talk  of seafaring Toik that of the Mary  Celeste has for thirty years taken  the lead. All sorts of explanations  havo been attempted, and the incidents have boen used as tho basis of  a well-known sea novel, yet no satisfactory solution lias bcon offered.  A writer in the New York Evening  Post has recently summed up tho  facts .of the_ case, and strange, ones  "they are. The Mary Celeste was  launched in 1869". Bad fortune attended her very start ,in tho world,  for being built of green timber, she  stuck on the ways, and was floated  only at great expense. Her voyages  woro Unprofitable, and aftor a few  j'ears her captain, discourgaod by  continual loss,  took his lifo.  On December 1, J 873, the Mary  Celeste, bound for Genoa, was found  by the British vessel Pel Gratia  about midway between the Azores  and Lisbon, adrift and abandoned.  Sho was running under sail, hcr  long-boat was gono, and the chronometer and ship's papers were missing. It was evident sho had beon  deserted in haste. By the log-book  it was judged she had boen cruising  without a crow for eight or nine  days.  The ves.-el was searched carefully,  but the mystery only deepened. A  naked, dark-stained cutlas which was  found on tho cabin floor for a time  caused a suspicion of mutiny, but a  later examination  showed   the  stnins  to be_ ordy__rust. Thore_werc ��������� no  traces of strife. On the cabin tablo  lay cloth, noodle, scissors and thiin-  blo���������evidences of a woman's suddenly  interrupted sowing. The pumps wero  dry, thc cargo intact, and nothing  wrong with  the spars or rigging.  The brig was taken to Gibraltar  and investigations begun. There was  an attempt to prove that tho captain intended to lose his ship on  one of tho reefs of the Azores, but  the case fell through. Obvious objections to this theory woro tho presence of tho captain's wife and child  on board and thc risking of nil lives  in tlte long-boat, so far nway from  land.  When the Mnry Celeste was boarded, her sails gave evidence that she  wns abandoned while running boforo  a strong breeze, nnd hud been rounded to in order to launch the lifeboat. Her fore hatch was lying bottom side-up on the deck. JJcr cargo  was alcohol stored in red oak barrels. Rod oak. is very porous, and  permits lho escape of fumes under  the pressure of: high ,.��������� temperature.  These alcoholic fumes mixing the foul  air of the hold may have generated a  gas which blew off the fore hatch.  Volumes of. vapor pouring out would  have caused the captain to believe  the ship was on lire. Accordingly he  lost no time in taking to the boat,  intending to lie put at'a safo distance. There was no fire, but tho  vessel, caught by thc wind, sprang  awny, and left the long-boat to make  a tantalizing and hopeless stern  chase, and finally, no doubt, to sink  beneath' the waves. No one vvill ever  know,, but this is what may havo  happened.  The later adventures of tho Mary  Celeste wore quite in keeping with  hcr ill-starred early promiso. She  was sold for debt, and proved a bad  iiargain. Then sho vvas wrecked off  Haiti, and her officers were arrested  for intentional destruction of the  brig. Tho case in barratry was dropped, but the (suspicion still lingers  that the owners and the captain had  an understanding that ��������� the vessel  should never reach port.  Perhaps the most 'disagreeable part  of tho journey for them was when  they passed through thc streets of  tho Chinese villages and hoard the  jeering remarks of the Chinese; for,  tho last time they had passed that  way, thoy had passed as a retreating  but not a defeated army, and were  still masters. Now the spell was  broken, the glory had departed from  them, and the Chinaman, unable to  prererve the soil for himself, at  least was not going to miss tho opportunity of having a laugh' at the  expense of those who had so ruthlessly made themselves his masters  A camp was formed at Chcraslii  station, and here tho prisoners were  housed, ponding tho arrival of the  trains to convey them to Dalny.  Hero also was served out to them,  with no stinting hand, each soldier  having as many tins of meat and as  many packages of army biscuits as  ho could possibly desire. All were  apparently in excellent humor, and  none seemed to feel their position  very keenly.' Tho officers paraded tho  platforms smoking cigarettes and  joking as if the surrender of tho  strongest fortress ever known was  nothing but an ovory-'day event. This  callousness of the Russian officers to  the disgraceful defeat their, country  has suffered has been the most marked feature of the surrender, and perhaps explains better than anything  else the reasons for that defeat.  COSTUMED AS FOR A BALL.  I went to Cherashi Station, and I  think almost every one did, with a  fooling of sympathy for the Russians;  for, so groat had boon tho downfall  and so complete tho humiliation of  the Russians, that common humanity could uot but feel disposed to  sympathize with individuals, oven if  one's feelings against the nation remained the same. But, after watching the crowd of Generals, Colonels  and lesser magnates arrayed in costumes more fit for a ball than th?  finale of a tragedy, and watching  how lightly thoy fell their position,  and seeing tho c'ontoinptuo.'js-manner  in which they received tho assistance  so readily accorded them by thoir adversary, all sympathy at once -evaporated, and a feeling that the  judgment fallen upon them was perfectly just took ils place.  Nat'irally one's feelings remained  the same towards tho womon and  children huddling together on the  few seats and looking-for the most  part miserable. Thero woro not many  officers' wives present, but many  maids end tho wives of some of the  civilians nnd noncommissioned- ollieers. Ono poor woman had threo  children to look after, one only u  fow months old; they were crying  and  too   much     for  her   lo  manage;  Recently Recast Bells  Turned Out  Nearly 300 Years  Ago.

Then, with a last whistle, the train  slowly moved off, carrying with it  tho truo cause of Russia's 'downfall  in tho far oast, and leaving seated  on tho platform, to await for hours  tho arrival of tho next train, tho  majority of the woman and children.  It was a miserable scone, and dissipated tho last remaining fooling of  regret for the misfortunes of tho garrison.  RAILS ARE TOO LIGHT.  Cause of Most of the Present Accidents.  I will mako a statement which will  bo challenged, but which can not be  disproved, writes Mr. F. U. Adams,  in Success. Thc abnormally heavy  locomotive, now th'o standard on  American railroads, is the positive  cause of a large percentage of railroad accidents, most of which are  charged against other factors of  equipment or service. The craze for  powerful locomotives set in about  1878. Prior to that, timo the aver-  ago locomotive weighed from, twecty-  fivo to fifty tons. Our roads wero  planned for engines of this typo and  weight. The rails, switches, bridges,  viaducts, und othor features wero in  conformity to tho medium-weight locomotive. It was discovered that  there was an economy in big height  engines, hauling a largo number of  cars, and thereby doing away with  train men. Jt was also discovered  that the greatest source of safety incase of tho inevitable collissions was  a car so solidly constructed that it  would smash' through" weaker ones.  Po haul those heavy cars at high  speed required engines of increased  size. The mechanical world was surprised when tho seventy-ton locomotive was announced. Then it wont  to eighty, then to ninety, and thero  was much acclaim when the hundred-  ton monster was tinned out of fho  shops. A    passenger      locomotive  which does not weigh ono hundred  tons is now considered out of date.  To meet th'o terrific impact of these  monsters, tlie size of thc rails has  bcon slightly increased, but we still  hold them to tho ties by the primitive .method of spiking- thorn down.  What is ihe consequence? Th'o rails  spread-'on a curve, and sometimes on  a straight piece of track, and a disastrous wreck ensues. Sucli accidents liave increased at an alarming  rate.  It is an open secret that hundreds  of accidents are charged against misplaced switches when tho cause  sliould read "ripped-up switches." It  seems impossible to construct interlocking switches, which arp safe'  against' thc well-nigh' resistless* impact of ono hundred or more tons  of metal hurled forward at a speed  of seventy miles an hour. Thc tracks  and switches nro too weal: for tho  locomotives. Thero is no doubt in  the world about it. Tlioro is not a  railroad man in tho country who  does not know that this statement is  absolutely true.  but no helping hand was hold out lo  her by tho crowd of oflicors whoso  privations sho had so bravely borne.  Thoy laughed and thej' I a Iked, they  brushed by her and took not the  slightest noliiv. Then It wns that tlio  Russian soldier showed lib; .superiority ns a genlleinnn lo his olllcer, as  ho has so often done ns ������ soldier in  the field. One dirly, ill-kempt imnl,  a humble puusnnl, perhaps unable to  rend, went up and took olio of tho  children, in his arms and kept him  until tho train moved oif. This is  only one little incident, but thoro  wore many more liko it in this truly  miserable, scene.  .SCICNIQ OF SI-IAJIE,  After describing the arrival of General Stoessel and his. staff at the station the correspondent..'goes oil to  say: Then occurred a .scene..'wliich  thoso who ,- witnessed it Wil 1 never  forget, and will ever.'remember With  shame and disgust.

It Is More Disposed to Friendship   With_England   The effects of tho Anglo-Krench entente are becoming daily more manifest, and there is a trowing feeling  of confidence in the sincerity of tho  reccncilintlon with Knglnnd among  all clnsscs of Kreiicliiuen. Thoy are  convinced that, even !n the event of  a chniicc of Government in Great  Britain, the snmo friendly intercourse  between the people which has been  begun under such promising auspices,  would be continued.  It is not only nmoiiB l'arlsians  themselves, but among the whole  French people, tliat lho .���������.ympbums of  cordial sentiment lownrds their llritish nrighbors is rapidly becoming a  prominent, feature in .social and political   lifo.  When thc change of .Ministry comes  in Great Britain, and vvith it a possible change of economic policy, it  will ho discussed in this country on  its own'.merits, and from a purely  technical standpoint; that is to say,  without the bitter Angloph'obo spirit  whicli used to render controversy between tho two countries so objectionable;' nnd sometimes  impossible.  Jt may bo true that tho disenchantment, with their Russian allies, resulting from th'e events in the far  East and . in-tho Russian Empire itself, has tended to fortify tho ties  that link the French nation with  Great Britain in virtue of tho Anglo-  l-Vcndi. entente. In many cases loss  is heard every day of the benefits of  thii . Krancrt-UiiKsinn alliance, while  the advantages of the Anglo-French  entente are the theme of constant  appreciative comment. The opening  of Parliament and the prospects of  the session would; in other circumstances have called forth that display of hostility to English' politics  nnd politicians wliich was until recently a. leading characteristic of thc  French press.     .  People who sleep with their mouths  closed enjoy bettor health than  others.  3S3-J-, have boon retained. Tho industry calls for superior workmanship. To bo a successful boll founder  ono requires not only to bo a good  musician and mechanician, but he  must also bo a practical metallurgist ana possess some of tho qualifications of an architect. To be able  to cast and tune a bell in consou-  ance with others of the peal, ono  must have a precise musical car, and  as bell metal is a mixture of copper  and tin (tlio latter being somewhat  loss than a fourth of tho wholo  weight), it would bo ruinous if tho  bell-founder were not an expert.  SOME FAMOUS BELLS.  But tho onerous duties of tlie boll-  founder do not end there. He has  to make thc bell wheels and fittings,  and in order to appreciate tho  strength' of tho belfry in which tho  bells are to be hung, he must havo  a good knowledge of architecture.  And still further, to iusuro success  he must bo a bell ringer. AU these  attributes are to be found at tho  foundry whence tho great bell of  Westminster, the largest ever cast  in London; the great bell of Montreal Cathedral, the largest ever shipped; "Great Peter" of York Minster.  "Groat Tom" of Lincoln Cathedral;  the clock bells of St. Paul's (the  hour bell ringing since 1709); "Bow.  Bolls" of Choapside, and a host of  others had  their origin.  The industry is a most interesting  one in all its branches. To begin  with the casting of large bolls, the  shape of the bell is a vital factor.  It is its soul. Although the shape  h'as not changed perceptibly for hundreds of years, yet to th'e eye of the  export tho advance of science can ba  seen. The first diJIculty is to get  the shape true. Th'at done, tho tone  will be true.  MAiaXG THE CASTING.  To bring this about an iron mold"  is made and lined with loam, giving  the exact shape of the outside of *  tho bell required. It is mathematically correct and inside this mold  or frame is built a core of brickwork  with a lining of loam on tlie top.  The core and lining is so manipulated tliat space is left for thc exact  thickness of tho bell. The next step  is to placo the mold in a loam pit.  Tho loam, which is in the vicinity of  tho furnace in which the metal is  mixed and melted, must be absolutely dry. Wet or damp,-' an explosion  would occur. _ The mold is then  buried vvith the exception of the orifice to which tlie metal is drawn  from the furnace. When the mold  is full, a pool of molten metal is  left, on tho top of Uie pit, so as to  obviate the mischance of making an  unsound head lo the bell. A bell in  cooling contracts and the greater  thickness of the base draws the metal away from th'e upper part; hence  the necessity for the pool  of metaL  _  Smaller bells, by the way, aro"  made by the samo method, with tho  exception that, hy means of a runner  oc pipe which runs alongside of tho  mold, the metal enters the bell at  thp bottom and rises to ihe top.  This gives a better vent than by  pouring from th'o top, but, of course,  in tho largo bells this method is impracticable. Before tho mold is  placed in the pit, however, the text  or legend which is to adorn thc bell  is impressed in thc loam and so good  is tho workmanship at Whitcchapcl  that when tho casting h.is bcon mnde  tlio-letters���������arc- beautifully-cut���������and   require only a rub with a brush to  clear away tho sand adhering to tho  metal.  PROCESS OF TUNING.  When the metal hns cooled, tho  mold is taken from the pit nnd the  extraneous parts cut off from the  head. Jf necessary, it i.s then tuned.  Tn ca5e of the Rochester Ileal, tho  bells wero cast lo act in unison with  the old or tenor bell, which has been  doing duty for some eighty years. Jf  the new bell happens to bc loo sharp  it is placed on tho tiuifnir machine,  head downwards. This machine  works in a circle and cuts metal  from the inside of iho bell. This process is continued until the correct  note has boon obtained. A bell can  ho sharpened onlj' by cutting it  jjjown, but this is rarely resorted to.  Next comes the fitting of tho  tongue or clapper. This is a delicate  operation. The staple is first foreed,  thon the. clapper and its stem are  welded together, and the lot ill tod  in with mathematical precision. In  tho forgo the steel frames are also  made  FAMTLY OF WORKERS.  The bell is then fitted with a wheel  and head stock. Tho wheels are  made in two halves of English ook,  and as in other parts of tho foundry  everything is Knglish, n circumstance all the more remarkable when  scarcely an Englishman is to bo'  found in  tho surrounding district.  Good hells have long lives and  only a short time ago tho bells of  Sittingbourne, Kent, which Wore cast  at tho foundry in JGS7. came back  after 200 years to be seen to. Jf  bells have long lives, it appears that  bcl(founders are also blest in that direction, for one of tiio mon working  at tho hand bells in a top room has  his father downstairs working thc  tuning machine. The f.ither has been  forty years at tho foundry: his fa- -  ther in turn worked for fifty years  there, and his father again���������tho  great-grandfather of tho youngest  workman���������worked in tho same place  for many years.  ���������*- *ifi?jtti*.\-ici*'&xc;  ������������������mj**tt$^&&9i^X*tXim\-*r'* ?TW������W-CMK>.V������Twa'*JJl-i'  <k.ama,ys0*l&f&*&G3&*a u*JGX*XZi������iC*3tx*������t  nw****!*?****?.  j Appreciation  m  m  m  ���������  a  a  a  a  a  a  a  a  a  a  Madame Grisckla, the famous European  Soprano, who so thoroughly delighted thc  musical public of the City at her concert in  the Opera Mouse, has given thc following  unsolicited testimonial of thc "Nordheimer"  Revelstoke, B.

Sir  "Wilfrid Laurier is forcing separate  schools upon two new provinces, without consulting the people or permitting them to decide as to the system  they consider most conducive to the  welfare of all classes. Then again  these Government organs declare that  the vote in parliament demonstrates  the fact that Canadians generally  "~iTpp^TeW'th(rlegisiatioiir==Jlot'e,-that-  opposition to the bills was "factious"  and only in Toronto was any bitterness displayed. Take the division and  that proves where the sectionalism  centred. Out of 140 votes sustaining  this outrage as Provincial Rights,  sixty-one were recorded hy the Province of Queliec.  When "so called Liberal newspapers  attempt to draw a herring across the  trail, for the purpose of cajoleing  thousands who were cajoled nnd deceived during the last Dominion election, they appear in a rather awkward,  certainly threadbare role. The latest-  trick is to howl for a Department of  Alines, or ilit least an extension of the  influence of that marvellous auxiliary  to milling���������"the Buieaii." Not one  word about the strangled pledge for  "Better Terms": not oue sentence condemnatory of tlie Government's action  in refusing to deal with the duty on  rough lumber entering Canada from  the United States and. al times  jeopardising local lumber industries.  Oh, no���������that would be heterodoxy,  party disloyalty, honest journalism.  Never in the history of British Columbia have representatives manifested such utter indifference to issues  controlled at Ottawa. They only  know the sound of the "division bell"  and crawl to their places in abject  terror lest the vote be missed.

On toward the latter part of August  the Gates boys determined to have a  try for treasure shipped out after the  ' clean up at the llubson mines, near  ' Bullion. Tliey communicated wilh  Bill "Miner mid enlisted his aid. By  some means they manage 1 to secure  information concerning a shipment of  .$tS0.l>iX> of gold dust which was to he  made to Van run ver early in September,  The  gang  then came down to Vancouver and awaited information us to  the timo the gold dust would be placed  on the train at Ashcroft.     Word was  sent out from  the mine that the shipment   would leave on Sept. 9.     News  of this was secured hy the Gates boys  and   Miner,   by   some    underground  means, which the  secret   service men  were   never   able to fathom.   But in  interpreting   the   message   the   gang  made a  mistake, which was fatal to  their plans, and was the salvation of  the gold dust.   They read the message  to mean that the shipment would be  made   from   Ashcroft on Sept. 0, and  made   tlieir plans accordingly.   They  held  up   the   express,   which passed  Ashcroft on the early morning of that  date, and   got  only   $7,000  for their  pains, us   the  gold   was not shipped  from Bullion till Sept. 9. The message  concerning the dale of shipment did  not mention   its point of departure on  thc date in question, and  in jumping  lo  the   conclusion  that Ashcroft was  meant, the   gang   made   a   bad error.  Tho history of the robbery at Whon-  nnck on  the.  niglit of   Sept. 9 is well  known.      So   far no capture has ever  been made.    Old Bill Miner is the only  culprit   left   for  the law's vengeance,  now that the Gates boys have reached  the end of their string.  Tliey paid the penalty of their many  offences, and now lie biu-icd in unmarked graves on tho outskirts of  Lordsbuig. N. M. Two men held up  a saloon in T.ordsburg on Alarch lo,  and with ��������� their loot hurried oil to  tho mountains. Sherilf Afcurath, of  Lordsbuig, immediately organized a  posse and started in pursuit. After a  hot chase the posse overtook the robbers at the town of Separ. and whon  the two men showed resistance they  were killed. The youthful appearance  of thc dead men caused the authorities  of JLordsbiifg to institute an investigation wirh a. view of discovering their  identity which is said was finally  eiTected through photographs of the  Gates brothers then iu possession of  one of the Southern Pacific repiesen-  tatives nf the Pinkerton Detective  A'^ncv of Chicaso.  ������tf^^<������������^.'gswjwu^j������������gyji.ii, .Mj^gg^w^wnawwoi'mMV jj>mijm^'^ ,^^yi ��������� " *-l^*?J!fJ!J5?  3S5B3SS  *rir*mmi**m*ih>i*'rJ-?maBKran&a*r#tKt*ti*^^  'KHfJMUMilAM  The'untlersigned has opened a Lumber Yard in thc  City ancl will handle all kinds of  ROUGH AHD DRESSED LUMBER  SHINGLES, LATH, ETC., ETC.

She stated,that after their marriage she and Ben-Hailad-Nnthan had  traded together and that a house harj.  been purchased with a portion-of lier  dowery, This house, tho value of  which was as much as 110 manchs, GO  ihckels, or ������C2 10s., hnd been assigned  to hcr In perpetuity.

"Not. exactly what you'd call bad  news, though it reminds us that,our  holiday  is  coming  to  an  end."  "What���������what does she say?" she  asked, hei- face turned from him, her  eyes bent on the street beneath,  though  they  saw   nothing.

"Does���������does she say nothing about  me?" she asked in a verj- low voice,  the color rising to her face still  turned  away from  him.  "Ko-o." he replied. "I think she  wrote in a hurry." His face flushed  and his brow ''darkened. "Anyhow,  she might hnvo sent you a little  message,  but���������never mind,  Madge."  He jumped off the table, and ran  to her and put his arms around her,  with a word of sympathy and pride  and   protection   in   the   caress.  "All in good time! Just you wait  until ihey know you better and love  you; and you won't have to wait  long,  Madge."  She shook her hea'd and battled  with the tears that threatened to  fill her eyes.  ���������"But we are to go to Monk  Towers the day after to-morrow," he  said after a pause and with a sigh.  "How quickly the time has passed!  I wish I'd sfick out for a fortnight  or a mouth! But never mind. Hun  and put your things on, dearest, and  let us get out. Every hour is precious  now!"

Madge's face crimsoned, then turned pale.  "It���������is something of yours," she  said. "Will you lake it now?" and  she held it up to him, her eyes  downcast.  "Can't," ho snid. "I've packed  my portmanteau nnd locked it; and  if I opened it I should never get it  to again. Besides it wouldn't hold a  1'ut it with yours,  and givo it to me when we get to  the Towers.    What  is   it?"  She did not answer and ho sauntered olT. Sho held thc packet in her  hand, looking at it for full a minute, thon slie put it at tho bottom  of the trunk. It contained the things  alio had found on him the night she  had discovered him on the moor,  and Irene's locket was still among  them.  They traveled by an express train,  nnd Uoyce had tipped tho guard an'd  .secured a compartment to themselves. Madgo was very siiont, and  sat in hor corner looking out dreamily upon tho landsape as it flew ivy  taking, as it seemed to her, all hor  past   life  wilh   it.  Uoyce understood all that was  passing in her mind, knew thnt she  was thinking of her peoplo whom  she had left forever, and of'the new-  life that awaited her; ami every now  and then he took her hand, or put  his arm around her and murmured a  word of love and sympathy.  Whon they reached the station he  saw her start as if she had suddenly  awakened from a dream, and her  face grew pale, but he had no time  to   whisper  more   than:  "Here wc are dearest!" before thc  door was opened, and a tall footman  came forward and touched his hat.

"All right, Madge?"  She looked at him and tried to  smile, but she could not speak for a  moment,   then  she said:  "Yes. While you arc with me,  Jack."  "I shall always be with you,  Madge!" he said.  The carriage sped on through the  semi-darkness up the avenue and  within  sight   of  the  house. , I  "See, Madge," he said; "here woi  are." ..'"'.-...''  Madge looked out and hold her  breath.

She expected every  moment to hear it broken by the  strains of an organ, for it seemed to  hor like one ol" tlie churches Royce  had   taken  her  to  see   in  London.

As he spoke he looked at Madgo,  and Itoyco saw his discreet oyes  opon with a respectful surprise aiid  admiration,  "Hor ladyship thought Mrs. Landon would like to go to hcr room  at once, sir," he said, an'd ho beckoned to some one on the stairs. A  maid, dressed in black cashmere, with  collar and cull's that gleamed whilely  in the subdued light, came down  softly.  "Quite right," snid Royce, "Como  along-, Madge," un'd just touching  encouragingly thc hand that rested  on his arm, ho led her up the broad  stairs.  Her heart wns beating so fast  that she folt stifling; she know that  she was pale; but she fought hard  for outward composure, and won;  so that tho maid, who watched her  closely, declared in the servants'  hall that Master Roycc's lady was a  plucky one, and as cool as a statue!  Madge did not look around tho  room into which thoy were shown  until the maid had gone into the adjoining one; then when slie did glanco  about her, she found it diflleult to  repress a cry. ,  Tho room was ono of tho bost in  the house, and it had boen newly  and siiberbly furnished. Even Koyce  opened his eyes and whistled as he  surveyed  it.  "Evidently madam doesn't mean  to  do   things  by halves,"  ho  said.

To develop a good flock of breeding sheep for wool ami mutton I  would begin with ewes that are half  Merino and: mate thorn wilh a buck  that is a full blooded Shropshire,  writes Mr. i-'rank G. Hughes.- In  this cross-you get a grade of sheep  that is hard to heal for both wool  and mutton. Hy this method I once  got a twin lamb thai sheared, when  a little moro than a year old, 10  lbs. of good wool and when a year  and_iaJialfi the carcass _^?'Khcd_l_00  pounds. I cross my sheep "back and  forth as my judgement lolls me is  bost. If the sheep are getting loo  wrinkly and the wool loo short 1  get either a Cotswold. Oxford or  Shropshire buck, and if the fleece is  getting too hairy and light in weight  I  breed   back   to   the Merinos.  In caring for the flock I prefer  green pa!-.lurcs for them us many  months in the year as possible. Hlue-  gruss makes tho best permanent pasture.

When Alexander If.���������grandfather of the present  Czar���������was assassinated by a bomb  he was carried to this room, in  which he died. He was laid upon a  couch, and thoro was that desolate  want of comfort about the palaco  that wo soo in all palaces. Splendour and no comfort is the experience of most monarchs. Everything  in the room is kept exactly as it  wns when tho Emperor died. The  uniform that he woro is there; the  cigarette that lie was smoking, only  half consumed, when the catastrophe  took place; some of the earth on  which ho foil; the surgical instruments that were usod, and oven a  small phial containing narcotics, and  part of a bottle of brandy. One  wonders that tho Czar cares to have  such a terrible memory of the past  about him, and those in his confidence often advise its removal.

Thirty-seven Deaths Attributed   to  Its Use Last Year.  Tho subject of wood alcohol poisoning has again cropped up, this  time iii Russia. When Russian troops  woro being mobilized last summer at  Dorpat tho event was made the occasion for drinking, and men and  women partook freely of a beverage  composed, according to lho Journal  oi the American Jledical Association,  of alcohol, water, peppermint, leaves,  salvia, lavender, etc. Liko Jamaica  ginger, this beverage is much affected by tho I.ivonians as an internal  remedy. Similarly, it ��������� is used as a  stimulating drink in default of the  ordinary alcohol  beverages.  Unfortunately for the Russian  merry-makers, the stuff was made  with wood alcohol instead of grain  alcohol, the consequence being that  sixteen men and. one woman died as  a result of the debauch. It is suggested that the alcohol used was  probably  of  the  deodorized  kind.  More recently a report has come  from Russia that twenty persons  have died at Kief from drinking  methylated brandy.1*'  It is only within the last year that  wood alcohol poironing has occurred  in Russia. Up to the year 1904 the  wood alcohol used in Russia was so  repugnant to tlie senses of smell and  taste that oven the ignorant peasants, who will drink tho vilest and  strongest forms oi spirits,���������could not  usu it as-a beverage.  ���������In tho; early part of 1904 the 'deodorized wood alcohols were introduced into Russia, in consequence of  which there have been already thirty-seven  deaths reported.  As here, wood alcohol, owing tb  ils comparative 'cheapness,' seems to  have boen largely substituted in Russia for grain alcohol in tho manufacture of remedial agents, flavoring  extracts, perfumes, liniment--, witch  hazel, -etc. - i  Russia May Be Too  Poor to Buy  .So Many Skins ' This  Year.  The trappers of the north, the fur  collecting depots and tho ordinary  country storekeepers are accustomed  at this season to send out their  bales of skins to tho wholesale dealers in tho great centres. A littlo  Inter the breaking up of tho snow  roads will hinder travel, and the increasing heat will injure and throw  such pelts as have not boen properly  dried jpon tho hands of tho men who  are   least  able  to  stand  tho  loss.  A  great deal of tho fur is shippedj  as il has been over sinco the lime ofj  Charles  II.,   directly  by  water    from  Hudson   liny.   Until   tbo  annual sales;  havo been held, which is after tho arrival  of tlio steamer from  Grent Britain,  tho  prices of furs  for the  coining season arc never established.  Tliat is tho groat rounding up  time, wlion the extent of tho winter's  harvest of fur thc world over is exactly cnlcjlated. A fair estimate of  it may bo made, howevor, from the  sizo of the bales and the quality of  tlioir contents ns they arrive just at  this  season.  Trappers who work south of thc  height of land which divides old Canada from the Hudson Bay territory  are generally heard from early this  month for the first time since they  went for their lines in the autumn.  The reports so far received are.  '     DECIDEDLY ENCOURAGING.  There has been a great deal of  snow, but also a good many fino  bright 'dayr, and clear nights. In  cloudy times most wild creatures  stay" under cover os much as possible,  and the hunters' baits are likely to  bo snowed under. It i.s in clear  weather that animals get out to  forage for food and to play about in  the snow.  Then, the cold has beon steady  since it set iii early in November,  with no prolonged thaw to loosen  thg hair. The snow has been kept in  gpod order, the moisture being frozen  out of it, which keeps the fur from  fading.  ���������  Mnny of these conditions were so  unpropitiioiis last winter that the  supply of furs taken from the woods  was smaller than usual. That meant  so many - more; animals left to mature,     or  to   breed    for  this  season.  But most important, of all is the  fact .that this is a fisher year. Why,  no one knows, but so it is that for a  year or two these valuable black  animals are to be found in greater  or smaller number. Then for perhaps  six or eight years there will bo  nothing, seen of* them at ,all. Old  hunters make many guesses as to  what becomes of them and why or  wliero they hide, but no one has ever  boen able to furnish a really satisfactory reason for their .  -  TEMPORARY  DISAPPEARANCE.  Suddenly some winter the trappers'  hearts are gladdened by the sight  of thoir peculiar trail or they get  them in fox traps. Fishers have boen  plentiful this winter, though they  wero scarce as hens' teeth last year.  It is always suro to bo a good  trapping year0whcn fishers are about.  In -fact, thoy scorn to bo a kind of  gauge whereby tho fur season may be  tested. _ If it is goo'd enough for  Ushers, then every other fur bearing  animal may be! expected to .'do well.  So it has been this last winter.  Fur has been plentiful. Trappers  have been unusually successful in  their captures. The quality is better  than it was last year. .  Unfortunately there is always such  a wide difference between the pricc  paid to the trappers -and thc actual  value: of 'Sir'tKat: it is impossible to  forecast. tho price of fashionable furs  for next season. But foresighte'd  men foretell a drop in prices of the  costliest varieties because of the  troubles ;��������� ,'in Russia, which is tho  heaviest buyer  of the  most valuable  furs  ��������� -    * .

Men dio long beforo their time because they try to crowd too much  into their experiences���������tlioy climb too  high and fall too hard. A wise  woman writes of the good that n  simple diet has done her:  "I have been using Grape-Nuts for  about six months. I. began rather  sparingly, until I acquired such a  liking for it that for the last three  months I have depended upon it almost entirely, for my diet, eating  nothing else whatever, but Grape-  Xuts for breakfast and supper, and 1  believe I could eat it for dinner with  fruit and be satir.lied without other  food, and feel much better and have  more strength  to  do  my  housework.  "When I began thc use of Grapo-  Xuts I.'was thin and Weak, my muscles were so soft that I was not  able to do any work. I weighed  only 108 pounds. Nothing that I  ate did-me any good. I was going  down hill rapidly, was nervous and  miserable, with no ambition for anything. My condition- improved rapidly after I began to eat Grape-Nuts  food. It made me feel like a new  Woman; my muscles got solid, my  figure rounded out, my weight increased to 126 pounds in a few  weeks, my nerves grew steady and  my mind better and clearer. My  friends tell me they haven't seen  me look no  woll  for years.  "I consider Grape-Nuts the best  food on the market, and shall never  go back to meats and white bread  again."

"Do you know why it is that a  woman dreads so to have a tooth  filled?" asked the dentist of . tho  young  mnn.in. the  chtiir.  Tho young man was of the opinion  that it was because women are human, and consequently decidedly opposed to having thoir jaws and gums  subjected to a treatment .like.'.unto  the working of a 'compressed air drill  in a stone quarry.  "So," said the man of: th'c drills'  and forceps. "Women can stand pain  mucli bettor than men. It is a fact,  even in the extracting of troublesome  teeth, tho fortitude of lhc litllo,  slender women : is remarkable when  one .'comes.:, to, consider the hideous  groans that emanate from a big man  undergoing the sane operation. It  isn't tho fear of pain that keeps  mnny a woninn away from: the chair  when sha really ought to be liaving  lier tooth attended  to.  "You seo this rubber? .

Well, there you havo it; that's  the reason women don't like to go  to tho dentist. Yos, sir, it's a fact.  I have: lost somo or iny best cuslonv  ers because of thc necessity of applying that  rubber.  "A woman comes in here to got a  tooth filled. If she is'''inexperienced  in- this line sho will bo. surprised  when tlio rubber is produced.

Sometimes, when I take the shield off,- the  pent up speech of the fair ones breaks  forth into an irrepressible flood, and  thc. portent of the remarks is, io say  the least,  not complimentary  I o  me,  "Some day somo genius will invent an apparatus .wliich' will allow  teeth to be filled without depriving  the patients of tlioir speech' for the  time being.

It has been almost utterly forgotten thut the electric railway was, in  the first instance, a British invention  and that so far back as 1837 a car  was electrically propelled on the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway. But  the invention came beforo its time,  and like many others Was put aside  and forgotten because of temporary  imperfections.  So, too, with llio ..motor car. So  long ago as 1769 Captain Plnntn,  a Swiss army oflicer, succeeded, after  long experiment, in producing a  steam carriage which ran along the  road.  A second automobile, built in the  following year, was exhibited before  Louis XV., M. do Choiseul, and  many other distinguished personages  at Versailles. That this is no more  legend is proved by tho fact that today, .134 years after its birth, this  self-same machine is to bo soon at  the Paris Conservatoire of Arts and  Crafts.  An obelisk was recently erected at  Dundee lo the memory bf .lames  Bowman Lindsay, who died in thnt  city on June 29th, 1862, on one of  tho panels of which aro inscribed  these words:  "A pioneer in electrical science;  foretold the application of electricity  as an illuminant, a motive power to  replace steam, and substitute for  coal in heating. He devised an electric telegraph, 14332, suggested welding by electricity, producing a continuous electric light. 1835; proposed a submarine telegraph, 1S13;  and accomplished wireless telegraphy  through water, 1853."
