Six Miles from Golden���������Freight  Train runs into Rock Slide ���������  Engineer Little Killed���������Fireman Dickey Dies from Injuries  Again    the    city   is ' thrown   into  mourning.     This  time through death  by. accident   of  one   of   her popular  young men,  in  the  person of David  .Little,' C.B.Ri. locomotive engineer.  On Monday evening, about 7:30o'clock,  a  freight   train   of    nine   cars   and  caboose,   in    charge   of     Conductor  John   Lawson,     with     the     deceased David Little as  engineer, and Geo.  Dickey, fireman, ran into a, rock slide  and was derailed,'the locomotive and  four "cars going over the embankment  into the   Kicking   Horse liver below.  Engineer Little was caught under the  wrecked engine and   instantly  killed  while  Fireman   Dickey   had an aim  and two legs broken.  The  accident happened  about   six  miles east of Golden on a sharp curve,  and the unfortunate men had not the  slightest chance to make their escape.  Th'e engineer stayed at his post to the  lasr, for it" is known  that the moment  he observed the rooks on the track he  applied the" brakes, but the intervening   distance   was too  short to avert  the catastrophe.   ' The  wrecked train  was .the . second   section   of   a  long  freight, the first section of which, in  charge ot Conductor Angus MacLean  and Engineer John Purvis, had passed  over  the   point   where ,the accident  happened   only about thirty minutes  previously.     The slide therefore'must  have come "down only a few minutes  before the second section came along?  The rock which caused the'accident  was sy large "tliat it had to be<blas'ted  out afteryvards. 1������  .-.-<-- ���������'���������  :'-Th%  cars  broken up, while the engine, by the  force-of the impact, was practically  turned rouud, facibg e.istward. The  body of the unfortunate engineer was  recovered 'shortly after . the wreck  occurred. . The fireman.was conveyed  on a '.light engine to the hospital  at Goldeu, where, the latest reports  state, he is progressing as well as  could be expected.  The  late  Mr.   Little   was well and  favorably known in. this city, where  he' has been a resident for some years,  as well as-along the line fiom Calgary  to   the ^coast, and  the   many friends  will learn  with sincere regret of  the  untimely end, in  the prime of life, of  "Dave" Little, as   he   was "familial ly  called. " The deceased has left behind  him to moum  his loss a wife and tvvo  young children, to whom he was ever  a loviug and indulgent  husband and  father.     The Herald unites with the  hundreds of friends in this district arid  piovince iu extending to the bereaved  widow and her two litllo daughters,  their heartfelt sympathy.

The result, from a citizens' point of  view, is regrettable, hut the smallness  of the total vote polled would seem to  show that the question h.ul not been  sufficiently placed before the public.  Theieisno question as to the insufficiency of the electric light system.' To introduce arguments th.it  part of the money was to be  applied to other purposes is merely to  sliiik the real question at issue which  is: Shall we or shall we not improve  our electric light system?, If tlie citizens are content to go oh for another  12 months with the present system,  well and good,   but we doubt if they  are; ~ i ,  We would suggest that the cuy  council go at it again. Let it be understood that money voted for this  purpose cannot be diverted lo. making  boulevards or to any other purpose.  Let 1111 engineers report he prepared on the electiic light system and  bo. laid before 1.1m council and then let  a mass meeting of citizens be called I o  discuss thc whole matter-m.d, if the  result is as we think ifc will be, let  another by-law be submitted to the  ratepayers.

G B, HUME & CO,  Department Store  Death of Mr. Mann.  On Monday evening Mi*. M. Mann  died at his residence from paralysis.  The deceased has been ill more or less  throughout the winter, bnt up to a  week ago had been steadily improving  and it was expected that* with the  advent of spring his health would be  fully recovered. But such was not to  be the case and last Thursday ho was  suddenly stricUen with an attack  which resulted in death. The late  Mr. Mann had been a resident of this  city, with his wife, for some years,  having moved here from Donald. The  funeral took place yesterday to the  cemetery and was largely attended.  Rev. O. H. M. Sutherland conducted  the service. To the widow, Mrs.  Mann, the many friends in tht! city  extend their heartfelt sympathy in !  her hour of bereavement.  Madame Freed Griselda is in  the City and Will Give a  Concert Monday Evening in  the Opera House.  The social event of tho season will  be Mad,une Griselda's song recital, at  the Opera House on Morulny evening  next. Madame Griselda enjoys an  enviable position among the leaditi"  artiste singers of the world and her  recital will be in the nature of a musical  treat for this city. The "Victoria Colonist says: "Those of Victoria's  music-lovers who attended Mme. Freed  Griselda's song recital on Friday evening, enjoyed a rare treat, although the  fame of this lady's voice and of'her  artistic capabilities had preceeded her,  Victorians were nevertheless unprepared to find in her an artiste of such  commanding talent and one possessed  of a voice of such delicious quality and  great power as that with wliich she is  happily endowed."  'On May 1st next a Calico Ball will  be given in Selkirk Mall, under the  auspices of the Ladies' Auxiliary to  the B. of R. T. . Under the management of the ladies there is no doubt  the ball will be a success, and they  are sparing no effort to attain that  end.

Willoughby Trcsillls, ponderously, *'it seems to mo that, ovon  though I mn your younger brother,  1 am Justified tn taking lho lead."  "Oh. does iv?" said his brother  Morsden soVngcly. "Then I wish to  goodness you wouldn't stick your  aristocratic nose into my affairs!  Mv life is my own, to do with ns 1  will!"  "It it wero me," Willoughby went  on unheeding, "it would not so  much matter."  "If it were you," snarled the lion.  Mursden, "yoii mny rely upon it I  should not have thc bad taste to  interfere! If you wished to go to���������  er���������tho tropics, I shouldn't attempt  to defeat your purpose!"  "But being you, it's altogether  different," Willoughby continued. "It  is the absolute duty of men in our  position to remember not only what  we are. but who ife arc. The family, any dear follow���������the family must  be  considered."  "Hang the family!" growlod  Marsden.  "Being the eldest, of course, you'll  succeed our dear Uncle Worcester in  the manquisate, and thc idea of an  actress,���������a common person, who���������or  ���������mimes aod poses for the entertainment of an unthinking multitude ���������  taking her place as the Marchioness  of Worcester, I must confess, fills me  with despair."  "Willoughby," said Marsdon bitterly, "you always were a prig!  They did right when thoy foisted  you into the Church! If you had  had the honor���������yes, I say the honor���������of knowing Miss Anstruther,  you wouldn't talk like that. Amd if  I did not know you for an incurable  ass, I'd punch your'noble head!"  "Actresses," said Willoughiby, with  a shuiefder,   "are all alike."  '���������'As a respectable country clergyman, your acquaintance among the  fratei*nity is probahly extensive!  Has the marq-uis consulted you on  the matter?"  "He has. He is filled with pain  and horror at the step you propose  to take. It is as his emissary thtat  I am here."  "I thought so!" said Marsdon.  And although he did his best to  speak with iindifference, he found it  impossible to entirely suppress the  inote of intense interest in hia  voice. "And how does the old fellow take, it?"* =-' "  "I have already told you that he  is   filled   with   indignation    at     the  very idea/���������as, indeed, I am myself."  "Yes,  yes:   but  what  does  ho    intend to do?"      ,;  "The one crumb of comfort to the  marqtuis and myselt is that, it is.not  yet too iuto to avoid tfliis catastrophe. Has tho wedding taken  place, he would have been obliged,  to have proceeded to extreme measures. As it is, he desires me to inform you that, unless you abandon  this mad project, nothing which is  not strictly entailed will como to  you when you succeed Irim. Furthermore, he will endeavor to break tho  entail altogether. So that Miss  Anstruther, if she marries you, must  not look for riahes."  ������������������"She doesn't!" said Marsdon. eagerly.  Willoughby smilod for the first  time during the interview.  "She probably told you so herself," he said sardonically. "On the  other hand, however, the marquis  has promised to treat this���������er���������incident as a youthful indiscretion, to  amply provide for Miss Anstruther,  ancl,     moreover,     to     pay  all  your  debts  in full,   on condition! ���������"  "Ves���������on condition?"  "T'hat you leave the country, and  travel for two years. He has sent  ������200 for your outfit and preliminaries. You will find more awaiting  you at  Cairo."  For  a   moment  Maraden  hesitated,  linn he    handed  back   the  envelope  ^tho^ridtesr-^"-^���������^^-"-^^  ent for one would have to be shared  by two.  Would he bo justified, ho mused, in  placing sweet Dolly Anstruther in  such an intolerably false position?  Would ho not be playing tho nobler  part by Quietly dropping out of hcr  life?  Of courso, it was tho vilest injustice. HiB lovo for Dolly was sin-  ccro an'd sound. Still, the marquis  insisted upon regarding tho affair as  an "entanglement," and, sinco Nature had endowed the^only rclat-ivo  ho possessed who was likely to bo of*  tho least uso to him with the obstinacy of a mulo ami the family prido  of an omporor, ho would have to accept the situation.  Yes, self-aHuogation would bo tho  nobler part. From the mantelshelf  ho reached down tho photograph of  a sweet-faced girl and roughly toro  it in half. But the pieces thut ho  threw into tire fire-grate were wot  with n strong man's tears.  ccr-lt aTnTrig"  "I ahall marry her," he said quietly, "and the familv mav go to Jericho!"  "Then there is nothing moro to  be .said," said Willoughby, rising.  "Nothing whatever."  "Hat I shall leave tho notes, all  the same," said Willoughby. "Man  ���������man. think what you're doing! I  Ehould havo thought you'd had  enough of genteel poverty by this  time. All our lives it has been  grind and scrape and screw to keep  up appearance, and now that.

For some time after his brother  had left, Marsden Trosillis sat with  hi.s face buried in hi.s hands. Wil-  lougWoy might be a prig, but there  was no denying the plain conunon-  sor,5*-e  of   his   parting  sentence.  Poverty, poverty, nil his lifo���������and  such ipmo'ilc poverty!

But he knew how fatal delay might  bn to him, and, for that matter, to  her also, and so ho did not giVe her  tho opportunity of replying to tho  letter. Neither did he go to soe hcr  to say good-bye. He knew that if  those beautiful eyes of hers wero to  fill with tears, and thoso tender lips  were to beg to stay behind and count  tho risks of tho world well lost, that  ho would yield. Scion of a noblo  house he might be; but he lacked  one of the .failings which his class  usually possess. He knew his own  weakness. Hc know himself for a  lovesick body, and so he went away.  At Cairo he inquired pathetically  for letters. There was correspondence in abundance awaiting him; but  none from Dolly Anstruther. Despairingly ho cabled to her: "I will  come home if you wish it." But no  reply Was returned.  "She doesn't caro for one," ho  said, .bitterly; and he plunged recklessly into the gaities arid dissipations which abound in the land * of  the Pharaohs, till it came to .-.her  one day that tho host people wero  beginning to look askance upon-him.  ''This will not do," he" told himself. For he was a disciple of tho  Greek philosopher who commended  man to know himself, and he had a  morbid respect for the opinions of  the "best people."  So he disappeared, whence no one  knew, and for two years nothing was  heard of him.  But at the end of that time he returned, bronzed and healthy;: as a  ploughboy. Ho had not thought of  Dolly Anstruther for months, arid  all that remained of her memory was  a little, and at times painful, scar  deep down in his heart. The pain  of parting had been sharp whilo it  lasted, but now that it was over ho  had  tho feeling  of  a man  who    had  "been   "ttu-ouglv-* the "fire  purified.  "So one here?" he said to tho  coachman, who waited for him outside the station. "I rather expected to seo Mr. Willoughby. He hinted in the lettor I*received at Plymouth that ho had somo important  news." ,  "Mr. W'illoughby's not staying at,  the castle now, sir," said the respectful coachman, "and my orders  was to drive you straight away."  As hc was whirled through tho  smiling country, Marsdon glanced  around complacently. After all. ho  had done wisely. (Most of the land  thereabouts belonged to .his uncle,  and was not entailed, too. Besides,  there was the London property, from  which his uncle drew the revenues  that enabled him to live as he did  at Beancash Castle. They would  have gone if he had given way to  his lovelorn instincts.  "Yes," he told himself, as he  bowled along, "it was a small sacrifice for such a groot reward. T  must have been a fool ever to havo  thought of making  it."  He looked round on the smiling  landscape.

THE NEW LIGHTIN RUSSIA  AWAKENING THAT MAY BRING  ABOUT REVOLUTION.  The     Newly     Born   Middle   Class  Are the Product of the  Universities.  As thc national indorsement of  tho reform programme sgreads steadily over tho wholo of Russia thoro  is a feature which recurs persistently in each local movement. Bodies  which aro wholly non-political in  other countries are hero foremost in  pressing tho agitation against tho  Government, suys a St. Petersburg  letter.  Medical societies, engineers' associations, tho teaching profession,  headed by nearly ull tho university  professors, areas active as tho lawyers. Kvery nation which docs its  own luwniaking has naturally a big  percentage of lawyers in its Legislature, but it i.s not tho practico  abroad for doctors or architects or  any other class of professional men  when they moot to discuss matters  affecting their calling to plunge  straightway into* hot national politics. That phenomenon hero discloses Russia in the critical throes  of producing what is termed a middle class.  It has been the uniform practice  here that every change should bo  worked by a stroke of the sovereign's pen. Institutions have riot  grown up; thoy have been deposited  as completed products, and it is the  popple who havo been called on to  adapt themselves to the institutions,  not the institutions to the people.  Tho first sharp impression mado on  the Government by the Crimean War  fifty years ago was that a complete  absence of national education had  proved a handicap. Thoy wore en-  tiroly justified in holding that their  soldiers had proved at least as  brave and hardy as the French or  the English; but in all tho multitude of things that:are necessary to.'  tho conduct of a war, the transport,  organization, the arrangements for  letting one division know what another was doing, they -������������������'*".  ADMITTEDLY BROKE DOWN.  The treatment prescribed by the  Government after the war was over  consisted in the creation of universities all over the country. Out of  theso thei authorities expected to  seo manufactured that newly discovered useful   thing���������education.  But none of tho governing class or  territorial nobility dreamed of sending their sons to these brand new  universities. They had them educated privately and by travelling tutors, as had always been* the. Russian  nobles' way.  It vory soon camo to be a pressing  question who were to be put inter  these universities which had been established wholesale, not: only in  great cities, but in every province;  howevor     remote    or   -unimportant.  nnd-cu>crgod-|-]-},(,���������-] VDCrntltm   0[-t),i:-pcaBo.ul.i*yJi:om  being tho legal chattels of tho landowner, fed and clothed from the pro-  coeds of their work on the land, ,but  not paid wages nor allowed'.td-leave  thoir owner's estate, which was also  a political sequel to the defects that  the Crimean war had disclosed, soon  gave the Government an idea which  enabled it to get out of the dilemna.

"  But this system of education,  especially tho daily companionship  of numbers of poor and ambitious  young men who expected nothing  but a life of empty drudgery, in a  few years was once again an anxiety to the Government. The places  which were intended to supply that  species of education which the Gov-  ernmemt wanted were all turning in-,  to Jorcing^grpunds_of   of tho peasantry. It is not a question of more loo", of more intelligent agricultural methods, better  roads and fewer local exactions by  tax gatherers.    Theso aro  THE DAILY QUESTIONS  of tho peasantry. For tho educated  reformers tho agitation is wholly  political. Any economic reforms  thoy would prefer to wait for until  they wero allowed to havo a hand in  framing thorn.  Thoir greatest encouragament and  strength comes from tho co-operation of tho territorial nobility.  Theso have always regarded tho Government functionaries, up to and including tho Ministers of State, as  a species ot Chinese literati, trained  parasites on tho body of tho nation  whoso functions thoy impede. As  tho agitation proceeds there appears  a closer union betweon tho loaders  of tho provincial nobility class and  this new middle class whose grandfathers woro serfs.  Tho policy which M. Witto is  adopting aims at economic development for tho peasantry and is  against the political rights demanded by tho middle class. Resolute  and single minded though ho is, it is  diflleult to understand how ho can  prevail eventually against a constantly increasing body which has  plenty of energy and is not at all  modest.  There is nothing academic about  their methods. They record all  around their approval of the act of  Do Plohve's assassin, who was of  tho class from which thoy are drawn.  The ominous recurrence of the bomb  idea in .the past two months comes  from'the younger and angrier of  this party, and not from the starving anarchist type.  It is constitutionalism that they  call for in deadly earnest and no  longer the local administrative reforms of the first programme. The  Government .answers that Russia  is in a wholly different position politically from any other great country and that she needs a wholly different system.  "It is not so," say theso business  men, lawyers, doctors, engineers, all  this new class in Russia which is  multiplying over the space that lies  between noble and peasant. ."Wo  aro not of very different stuff from  what other people's aro made of,  and we want to take the same risks  and chances as thoy.".  . . ���������.���������������'������������������;-���������-'��������� -.-  000<K>00������XHXMHX)<WK>0001 customed     to  travelling  that  Helen  says sho knows Just as long as sho  holds together Ethol May will insist  on seeing tho world.   *.

The firm of John Perrin and Co. has  built ships for generations, and is  pruciiaUly    tho    oldest    established  firm in W .  Tho present head of tho firm, John  Perrin, i.s a widower with one  daughter. It has been said thnt Mr.  Perrin is tho longest-headed man    in  W , and what ho    does not know  about shipbuilding is uot worth  knowing,  Dorothy Porrin, nt tho timo this  story opens, was nineteen years of  ago. Sho was a wonderfully pretty  girl, with a sweet, sympathetic nature.     Most of thc eligible bachelors  of W  had fallen in lovo with hor  at di;Tcrcnt times, but, so fur, Dorothy's heart was in hcr own keeping.  Mr. Perrln's oflices were of an extensive nature, and he employed a  large numl.cr of clerks. It is with  two of the latter that wo are principally concerned. Ono of thorn,  Walter .Jorrard, a nephew ot Mr.  Porrin, was in the privaio .office, arid  it-waa-'a common rumor that vono  day he would bo taken into the  firm. The other employe, Arthur  Evison, was a confidential clerk to  Mr,' Pcrrjn, and had been in his employ since his boyhood's days.  Both of the young men (for thoy  were each of them but twenty-fivo  .years of age) lived in W���������'���������, but,  whereas Jerrard was an orphan and  lived with his uncle, Arthur Evison  ���������resided with his mother, who was a  widow, and his earnings constituted  their sole income.  ln common    with the many    other j  Evison strongly determined to watch  his follow-clerk's movements, for ho  bognn to foel that thoro was some  treachery afoot.  During all this timo 1'Mson was  growing ovory day to caro moro and  moro for Dorothy Porrin, until at  last ho found it impossiblo to keep  it to himsolf. Ho saw Dorothy frequently, and on overy occasion his  passion becamo* more intense. Ho  found it vory hard to refrain from  telling nil to hor, but out of toolings  of respect to his employer ho deemed  It his duty to speak to Mr. Perrin  first. ,  Accordingly, Arthur managed to  get alono with his chief ono evening  after tho other clerks hatl gone, and  immediately begun to broach tho  subject.  "I want to ask a groat favor of  you, sir," ho commenced, and then  paused.  Mr. Perrin smiled, and waited for  Arthur to proceed,  "Tho fact is,  I want���������or "    ho  paused again, for, although ho had  definitely decided beforehand what  to say, tho words failod him at the  auspicious momont.  "My. dear fellow," Said Mr. Perrin,  for Evison was a groat favorite with  him, "if I can possibly help you I  will, but I hardly know yot what  you are in need of.   Is it money?'  "No, sir," cried Evison. his faco  flushing; "I���������or���������I want to get married."  "Oh, is that it?" returned Mr. Forin, cordially. "I'm pleased to hear  it; who is the lady?"  "Well, I have no}, spoken to hcr  yet; I don't know whether ��������� it is advisable."  "Why not? Sho will be a lucky  girl, in my opinion."  "I'm1* glad you think so, sir.", continued Evison, "because i't is your  daughter I want."  o "Oh!" Mr. ��������� Perrin's face; assumed a  vory different expression. He become  thoughtful, ' and gazed meditatively  at the papers , before him.

Each of tho two men, howevor,  'know the other's secret, and this  ���������quickened a disliko that thoy had  long mutually fostered. Evison distrusted .Jerrard; ho saw behind that  hanilsonie face and careless expression a mean and shifty character. In  'his turn Jorrard had the natural  dislike of Evisan. which his kind invariably bear towards men of an up-:  ���������right disposition.  Arthur: Evison could scarcely be  ���������called handsome, but there was somo-  , thing attractive in his strong, clear-  ���������cu.t" features; people could distinguish  .at onco his manly,  tru.thful    nature,'  ���������arid in consequence ho was liked and  respected by nearly all who knew  Wm. ���������-..-.'    -    -  Some years, ago, the shipbuilders of  Britain began  to  grow   alarmed     at  .the    competition of foreign countries  ���������America and'   Germany in "particu-  'lar.   So much was this felt in W   "that   many houses     were forced    to  '.- :closo on account of the. bad times.,  '     Several of the old houses,  though,  such  as  John  Perrin and Co';,    were  -ablo to face tho difficulties,* but evon  ���������',  with them matters were serious. For  Mr.     Perrin   personally   it did    not  mnttor     much,    he    being    possessed  ���������of large private means.  However, when the North Atlantic  Steamship -Company asked for ten-  dors for two now liners from several  of the shipbuilders of W������������������, matters  began to show signs of improving.  'I'he two new liners were to be  larger than any of tho North Atlantic Company's present fleet, and  ���������would     bo thu   largest  vessels     ever  built in a W ..shipyard.  Pen-in and Co. was ono of the firms  -asked to tender and they.; naturally  made every effort to obtain the- order. Mr. Pert-iu know that his only  serious rival was .losiah Grey, whoso  .yard adjoined, his own.  Arthur Evison hnd a groat deal: to  ���������do with the preparation; of the esti  mate, as had also Walter Jorrard  Thoy were both at the frequent consultations held in Mr.* Perrin's private office, ;and naturally tho whole  affair was conducted with the iutmost  ���������secrecy, no one handling the papers  without Mr. Perrin's knowledge.  Every night all the papers were se-  ���������curely^locked'up^Mr.���������Porrin=him3elf  ���������carrying tho key.  One evening Arthur Evison was returning from a solitary walk across  the common when he was somewhat  -astonished to see Walter Jerrard in  ���������company with an employe of .losiah  Grey. Evison knew that his fellow-  clork had hitherto had nothing but a  nodding acquaintance with his prosont companion, but he put down  thoir boing together to a chance  meeting. They had not seen him,  and he speedily forgot tho matter.  It was Evison's custom several  evenings in the week to stroll ovor  the common and climb Erkon Beacon,  a lonely    hill about two    miles  from W- .   Hero he. would sit   and  smoke a solitary meditative pipe,  whilst he contemplated the glow   of  tho     furnaces    of W*  and, farther  away, tho lights, of the shipping in  the bay.  ' About, a week after :hc had soon  Walter Jerrard* in company with  JTosiah Grey's clerkj Evison was - on  Erkon Bcacan in'the early evening.-  The light,was yet.good, aiid. presently ho distinguished two figures come  .together, at. the foot of the hill and  greet each ,. other. To his astonishment Evison again saw Jorrard and  his  new acquaintance,  Tliis second meeting caused him to  think seriously of the matter, and in  the morning he cautiously led up to  th'o subject during a conversation  ���������with Jerrard. Without touching directly on what hc had witnessed,  Evison was enabled by a little diplomacy to draw out Jerrard. It was  very ovldent that the latter intended  to keep his new friendship a secret,  for ho stated that ho had beon otherwise employed on tho ovonlngs that)  Evison had seen him at Erkon  Beacon.  Tho rest of tho conversation only  plunged Jorrard deeper and deeper  into tho mire, iOthd*i������;h> ho iwiis quito  unconscious  of it.      flowovcr;  it  l������ft  my boy," ho said,  "but it cannot be. Forgive me for  saying it, Arthur, but I have other  views for Dorothy."  "I suppose you mean my position  is not good enough?" said Evison,  bitterly.  "Not exactly that, -Arthur," replied Mr. Perrin, bu������-������������������" He became  silent.  "Then, I suppose' it is useless,  sir?"  "I'm afraid so,~ iny boy." ' "  "And so thoy settlod matters without dreaming of consulting Dorothy.  Arthur Evison left" Mr:.. Perrin's  office ?an'd went: out into .the cool  evening air. Tho decision of his chief  had, affected him considerably; / he  felt a choking sensation in his  throat, Jhfa brain -was whirling,, and  everything' seemed to:-dance.'-before  his oyes.  He    must    got   away   from -W .  Yos, there was no doubt" of that;  ho could not- live-so -near to Dorothy  and know - all the while that she  could never be anything to him. He  decided that ho would**osk Miv.Perrin  to let him, go to the firm's office  in London and tako up an appointment there.  All the while h'o was stumbling  forward through the twilight, crossing an unfrequented part of the common which led l'to Erkon/Beacon.  Presently he sat down by a clump of  fur-zo and again commenced to, think  over his sudden misory. At. that  moment the- wind carried the murmur of voices to him. Presently the  speakers drew: near, arid Evison  distinguished the voices of Walter  Jerrard and Mortimer, the clerk in  tho employ of Josiah Grey. As they  passed by '.Eviso'u'a retreat Jerrard  was speaking.  "That will be it, then;"'ho. was  saying. "You meet mo at the back  door ia llston Lane; at tori o'clock  :to-morrow night, and I'll let you  in. You can'get the lender, and������������������"  their-voices died away.  Arthur jumped to his foot and  stared into the gloom after the retreating figures.  Ten o'clock to-morrow night! The  tender!    What    did   it   mean? Did  . J errnrd mean.' treachery?  ''" All -thoughts of his own -troubles  were drivon from his head. There  .was evidently some scheme on^fopt  to got at Mr. Porrin's estimate for  ^the���������two--new^lincr3.='E>v'ison==;,kncw_  that if the estimate, or a copy of i't,  got into tho hands of the rival firm  they, would underquote Mr. Perrin  and sp secure the order./'/.  "I'll be-there at ten o'clock as  well," he said to* himself, -'and see  what  goes  on."  On arriving nt tlie office on tho  following morning he found that Mr  Porrin would be away for tho day  Jorrard was'there ns usual, but very  palo and preoccupied.; The daj* seemed to pass by with leaden wings, and  Evison was heartily glad when the  hour of departure arrived.  Tn llston Lane there was a back  entrance to Mr. Perrin's offices. Tho  door worked with a spring, and  could only be opened from the outsido with a key:: Thus-anyone locked  in tho oflice could get out without  any trouble.  With this knowledge in his mind,  Arthur Evison���������-allowed., himself to be  -locked in. The porter'made his usual nightly round, but Evison easily  managed to.evade him arid tho office  cleaners. Ho had told'Mrs'/,Evison  tha,t, in all prbbaility he would" bo  lato, so that there was no fiaw> -in.  his plan:  * Slowly .the evening passed by, and  at about half-past nine Evison took  up his station .- at a window overlooking tho entrance to llston Lane.  There was a street-lamp just outside thc door, so that anybody, entering  could  easily  bo  seen.  It was just tlve minutes to ton  whon Evison suddenly saw Jcrrard's  figuro slink into tho lamp-light.  Click! tho door wns unlocked, and  then ho thought it best to leave his  position. It was well for his scheme  that ho did, for almost immediately  .Torrard enmc up tho stairs and occupied tho place ho hnd just vacated.  Presently     Jorrnrd    saw   Mortimer,;  and    ho     crept     downstairs     again.  Then the two men returned together,  pussed ulong the passage,  and enter  ed Mr. PoiTln's private room, where  tho safo was. Evison was waiting  with bated breath ln a doorway  farther along the corridor.  As soon as the two accomplices  had entered tho private oflico. Evison  stole along and stood in tho shadow  of tho half-closed door.  It was entirely as he suspected,  Jerrard opened the safo and withdrew the estimate for tho two liners  from an inner drawer. Then Mortimer producod somo pieces of papor  and commenced to mako notes.  "Good evening, gontlemen."  Both men looked up in sudden terror to meet Evison's miling ga/o  Before another word wns spoken,  howevor, Mortimor jumpod to his  foet nn'd rushed from the room. Jorrard and Evison stood looking at  ono another.  "So, my friend," commenced Evison, 'deliberately; "this is how you  servo your undo?" j  "Spy! hissed Jerrard, aud for a  moment hc made as if to spring at  Evison, but something in the lnt-  tor's demeanor mado him suddenly  alter his, mind. Then he took a fresh  lino of tactics.  "Don't say anything ahout it, old  chap," he entreated. "I wanted  money badly, and Mortimor tempted  mo. They were going to give mo ono I  hundred pounds for a copy of tho  tender."  "Why didn't you ask your uncle,  ho would havo helped you?" asked  Evison.  "I didn't enro to," muttered Jorrard,   "because of Dorothy."  "Dorothy!"   cried    Evison.   "What  nns sho to do with you?"  "Oli���������er���������we're ongagod."  "Engaged���������to you?"  "Yes,  why not?" replied    Jerrard.  "Please don't   .mention; it, -though,  as Dolly does  not want  anyone     to  know about it yet."  "Dolly!" repeated Evison, bitterly. Ugh! the familiarity cut him to  the quick.  "May I ask what this moans?"  said a voice, suddenly. Both "men  looked:up and saw- Mr. Perrin standing in the doorway. For a moment  they wero taken aback, but Jorrard  was the first tb recover himself.  "It means this, uncle," ho burst;  forth. "I' was passing by llston  Lane when I saw Evison sneak down  towards the office. I hastened aftor  him, and saw him enter hero. Ho  left the door open, I followed, and  saw him copying the tender."  Evison listened as in. a dream to  this tissue of lies,, and was only  awakonod by .Mr. Perrin's stern  voice. ���������  "Whut have you to say for yourself?"  A thousand words of defonco  sprang to his lips, but erO;he could  utter' one lie remembered Dorothy,  [f he told all he knew it would break  Dorothy's heart.  "Well, Evison, I am waiting.

Er���������you may lie curious  to know ; how I happened to como  here," Mr. Perrin added, "but I saw  a man running from llston Lane, and  an impulse led nio down it, to find  the door of my office open,"  .Stunned'.'by this sudden blow, Arthur staggered rather than walked  to liis home. He did not go to-food  but sat, the night /'through in his  bedroom.  In the morning, with palp, haggard  face, he called at. Mr. Perrin's house  as ho had promised, and was shown  into  the  drawing-room.  He * had r hardly-, boon* tliere a? mprnr  ent before Walter Jerrard entered*  the room.

Dr.   Abernethy   Met    His Match���������  Dr. Gregory Was Very  Generous.  The story of a great London physician, a man whoso fees frequently  run into three figures and yet who  is said to dev'ote a third of his  timo to attending the poor without  a penny of reward, recalls stories of  other doctors who havo declined suhr  stnntial fees���������and of somo who have  not.  Tho famous Dr. Abornotliy had a  heart as tender as his tonguo waa  rough, and many stories aro told  of tho kind d.'nels ho did by stealth.  In ono case, uftor attending a half-  pay officer during a long illness, ho  point-blank refused to tako even tho  smallest fee. "Wait till you aro a  general," ho said; "then como and  seo mo, and wo can talk about fees."  In another case, where ha had  taken fees from a poor lady for attending her child under tho wrong  impression that sho was woll-to-do,  ho retiurned them all, together with  a ������50 note, begging her to spend  the money in giving her child a  daily ride in the fresh air; and to a  third patient of small means ho  said, "Your recovery will be slow.  If you feel pain, como again. IAnd,  mind, I don't want your money."  But with' those who could afford to  pay ho not only insisted on his proper fee, but treated them often with  a brusqueness which was by no  means palatable. One good lady,  howevor,   was  A  MATCH  FOR  HTM.  EARN A  Comfortable Living  WITH A  Chatham Incubator  Poultry raising with a Chatham  Incubator is a very profitable and  easily managed occupation." Unless  you want to go into it" extensively it  need take but very little of your time.  Government reports show that thc  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatly in excess of the supply and  Great Britain is always clamoring  for more. That means a steady  market and good prices for chickens.  You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be  laying. While she i������ batching and  brooding a few chickens she could be  laying five or six dozen eggs. The  percentage of chickens she hatches is  much less than that produced by the  Chatham Incubator.  It will pay you to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham Incubators contain every  improvement of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. They are made of thoroughly  seasoned wood, with two walls, case  within case. Between these walls  .mineral wool is packed forming the  very best insulation. Each piece of  the case is mortised and grooved and  screwed, making the whole as solid  as a rock. Chatham Incubators are  equipped with scientifically perfect  regulators which are an infallible  means of rep-ulating the temperature.  No cash to pay until  October, 1905.  -Wo will start you raising poultry  for profit with a Chatham Incubator  without one cent of money from you  until next Fall. That means that you  can take off seven or cight^hatches  and make considerable money out of  the Incubator before thc first payment  becomes due.  We couldn't make this offer if we  were not certain that if you accept it  you will get complete satisfaction, if  we were not positive that the Chatham  Incubator will pay you a handsome  yearly income.  This is a straightforward offer. We  make it to show our supreme confidence in the Chatham Incubator. We  want you to accept this offer as we  are sure of the satisfaction our Incubator will give. Every machine we  have put out so far has made other  sales in the same neighborhood.  - Our offer ia to send you a Chatham  Incubator at once, freight prepaid by  it* without one cent of cath from you.

What am I to do with  this?"  Abornotliy snapped out, 'Tut it  on the firo if you please." In a  momont the lady liad put the . prescription on tho fire and her fee on  the table, nnd, witli a bow, had  vanished  from  the room.  A good story is told of Dr. Gregory, of Edinburgh, ono of tho most  generous of physicians. 'Hio was  called in to sec a medical student  who was ill with typhus fever. The  invalid proffered the usual guinea to  the doctor, who indignantly declined  to take it.  "I bog your pardon, Dr. Gregory,"  the student said, in apology. "Dr.  ���������<���������. who has beon attending me, always takes it."  "Oh, does he? "Well, just you ask  him to meet me In consultation,"  Gregory said, "and thon offer mo  the fee in his presence."  The consultation took place, and'  when the. student tendered the guinea  Gregory turned on him fiercely.  "Sir," be exclaimed, "do you  moan to insult me? Is thero a doctor anywhere who would so far dis-  ���������grn-cc   Himself    aa to  tako payment  from one of his' brothcrHboA���������rxn-d a  junior?"'  The other doctor  took this rebuke  so much  to    heart that bofore.    the  day was  over    he had returned  thc student every guinea ho had  RECEIVED FROM TTTM.  But. oven ^benevolent doctors must  at times find the temptation to  pocket a fee too great to withstand. It is told of 'Dr. Radcliffe  that after attending a friend gratuitously for a whole year his patient  handed him a fat purse, saying,  "Doctor, in this purse I have puv^:  every c'ay:s fee. Please take it. My  gratitudo must not be less than your  generosity."  ''.Radcliffe took the purse in: his  hand intending to return it, but the  weight and the chink of the gold  caused him to waver. He. was lost;  and, putting thc purse in his pocket,  said, "Singly, sir, I could havo refused them for- a twelvemonth, but  all together thoy are irrestible."  Dr. Hunter onco lost a fee'in an  amusing manner through excess of  delicacy. "What is your fee, sir?"  a lady patient askod him.  "Madam," he answered, "I mako  a practice never to fix the amount of  myfee.���������' -������������������     =^=^   On  being  further  pressed he     still,  declined;  and at last the lady   with  a pretty expression of thanks    took  hcr departure, leaving Hunter fceloss  and not a little disgusted.  It was another ' physician who,  when a lady offered two guineas instead of his expected und customary  throe, made a pretence of searching  for the third guinea on the floor.  "Nay, sir," said thc lady, with a  simile, "you are not in fault. It  was not you but I who dropped it."-  When a friend, after consulting Sir  Thcodo"o Maycrno, put down two  broad pieces (the equivalent of ������3  12s.) on the table, the great physician placidly  PUT THEM IN HIS POCKET,  much to tho patient's surprise    and  indignation.  "Sir," Sir Theodore said, when ho  saw disgust written largely on his  friend's face,"I have just mado ��������� my  will, and if it leaked out that I had  refused a fee on tho same day I  might bo doomed out of my senses."  The generosity of doctors' is���������not  less liable to abuse than'. that';.of  other men. Ono day a man who  called to consult a great- London  doctor pleaded that he was but a  poor half-pay officer, and could not  afford to pay the full fee.  "In that case, sir," the physician  said, "allow me to remit it altogether and to have the pleasure of  attending you gratuitously."  A few months later thc doctor discovered- th*t tho self-styled half-pay  officer was really a wealthy squiro  with a large rent-roll. "And, sir,"  he exclaimed, when ho told the discreditable story, "I'll act in exactly  the same way to tho next poor man  who gives me his *rord of horwu* that  he is too poor to patr me."*���������London  Tit-Bits.

The  onlj- one who has  moved at all is.the member for Kootenay whose  energies appear to be concentrated   upon   forcing   an   electric  power monopoly on the city of Ottawa.  Imagine the Government of  Richard  McBride   countenancing   such   a surrender of existing municipal protection  ���������what a howl would go up from every  housetop any so-called "Liberal" could j \  reach!    And that is the kind of work '  our member is called upon to perform.  TheProvince may bo tyrannised over,  denied its-rights,deprived of its jirivi-  Jeges !    What cares William Galliher,  so long as   his   time is pleasantly and  profitably occupied.   What cares Eoss  of  Yale-Cariboo,   or  ^Macphcrson   of  Vancouver, or Riley of Victoria? Perish   the   thought   that    they   should  waste   time   struggling   to   force Sir-  Wilfrid Laurier's Government to do  justice   to   British    Columbia.     And  these men. when  there is a: Provincial  election will  be  the first to endeavor  to'defeat the McBride administration.  For  several weeks Mr. Galliher lias  been endeavoring to saddle the city of  Ottawa with  a prospective trust combination, which, receiving the sanction  of parliament will add  52 per cent to  the cost   of   electric lighting, and unduly   press   irpon   the   poorer classes  ���������who depend   upon   their daily toil for  the support of   their  families.   Why  Jlr. Galliher shouM  go out of his way  to become the exponent of embryo  trusts and the slave of corporations is  suspicious, to say lire le.i-st. The Ottawa electric issue is at present local.  Jim once parliament makes a precedent,' the evi! will spread to other  communities and io other industries.  XVe imagine however, lhat XV. A,  Galliher is quite indifferent.  THE PEOPLE   SHOULD BE  PROTECTED.  When  men   work  for and advocate  reforms, earnestly believing that such  should be crystallised into legislation,  would benefit a particular class, without doing violence to the privileges or  circumscribing the  freedom of others,  they   should   not   accept   as  a favor  what is claimed as a right.   The curse  of   departmental   patronage   has  too  often warped the judgment of a representative   with   eyes turned towards  future personal advantages. He would  prefer opposing a Government, according   to   the  appeals   and instincts of  conscience;   but   doing   so  involves a  withdrawal   of    ministerial    favors!  Hence,   selfishness   prompts    him   to  think  twice before manifesting independence,  or  privately   agrees   with  thoso who dole out patronage, and  votes with tho Admin ist ration upon  all questions removed from tho particular issues .which he had pledged  himself to support. This man can  accomplish littlo; he fails to attract  those who have been elected ou a  broad national platform and who vote  inthe interest not of a class liut tho  whole people. To be sure, partizan.  zeal misleads many who, in private'  life, would scorn to -become slaves lo  any human influence, and the independent member botween two power*'  fui interests, has not the pleasarrtest  time possible. Men, however, are  gradually coming to look with broader  view when scanning tlie political  horizon. , Every day furnishes proof  that the old iron clad partyism is on  the wane, that thoughtful citizens  realize the danger of .surrendering  their: very.; consciences to leaders,who,  having gained their confidence are  prepared to betray them. For.in-  mce, not one of the important  pledges made by Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and his colleagues; hits eyerbuen,redeemed. -Wliy? Tn the first place too  much was promised, and in the second  place, many of those who made the  promises, upon the first opportunity  retired from parliament and accepted  an office under the Crown. Sir Henri  Joly, appointed to the Lieut.-Gover-  norship of British Columbia: the Hon.  Sir Oliver Mowat, Lieut-Governor of  Ontario; James Lister, M.P. for West  Lamhton, appointed a Judge; Sir  David Mills, Minister of Justice, raised  to the Supreme Court bench; the Hon.  J. Israel Tarte, virtually driven out of  the Cabinet, because advocating in  power, tliat which he advocated when  in Opposition; the Hon. A. G. Blair,  Minister of Railways, forced to resign  because he warned the Government  against parallelling the Intercolonial���������  Canada's state-owned railway. So,  all along tlie line. It is a question  and one of national importance,  wh.et-hei*^t'her-=olc*et'or's-should-n'blrdesl  mand drastic legislation with reference  to members of parliament being appointed to life oflices during the  period for which they were elected, or  fora certain time after they cease to  represent a constituency. At - all  events constituents should have something to say in the premises, and the  political association wliich nominated  the elected representatives should certainly bc vouchsafed the privilege of  either approving or disapproving of  his resignation and acceptance of a  life appointment. This would at least  make a member more independent  and a Government careful as to legislation.

The first excitement took place on  the introduction of the motion ol Mr.  XV. J. Bowser (Vuncouvar) censuring  the action of the Dominion authoi-ities  at Ottawa in interfering wilh educational matters in tiio Northwest Autonomy bill. If Mr. Bowser desired  to place the Opposition on the horns  of a dilemma, if ho desired to expose  their pitiful weakness to the unsympa-  tliizing gaze of a curious and derisive  public, if he wished the Liberal party  in British Columbia to prove by their  own actions that tlioy lacked the  courage to defend their own friends  and benefactors, and at tho same time  had not enough backbone or patriotism to support their own luuch-boast-  ed principles���������then Jlr. Bowser's  wishes wore certainly fully gratified.  Certainly, the member for Vancouver, in tlie brilliant speech he made in  support of his resolution, did not spare  either tho Liberal party or Sir Wilfrid  Laurier.. In dealing with the silver-  tongued Liberal leader, he employed  with great ell'ect that never-failing  weapon the "deadly parallel," reading  to the House copious extracts from  Sir Wilfrid's great speech in 1S0G on  the Manitoba School Question, and,  contrasting his 'past utterances and  his present actions, condemning him  Ucpaiiited'iu,  ���������aesssasgassaa  tytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytytyty  SPRING TAILORING I  r  Tlie undersigned has opened a Lumber Yard in thc  City ancl will handle all kinds of  HOUGH AND DRESSED LUMBER  SHINGLES, LATH,  ETC.,  ETC  A full stock of Kiln-Dried Edge Grain, Finishings  always on hand, nnd Mouldings of every description  will bc kept in stock.

It was not a pleasant speech to listen  to   and   what  mailed it worse was the  sullen silence in   which the Opposition  took it.    .Terrified on the one hand by'  the fear of the Dominion Government,'  and   on   the other by the fear of their  constituents', votes, they diirst*. nei ther  siippoTt   the "resolution, or  oppose it.

The mover of the resolution sat  down and the Speaker put the question. He got no reply. ..Nbr.was  there need for a division.

They placed part  of a stick of dynamite under thc building, but fortunately the charge was so  placed that it did little damage when  iir-ed. The la/Is were up before the  magistrate, who let them out on  suspended sentence after /jiving them  a severe lecture.  ly devoid of thosi.' llowers of rlii-toric  with which weaker men nnd weaker  Governments off on seek to enhance,  the value of llu-ir successes, or to  minimize the, extent of their failures,  in the public eye. It. was a vcry plain  unadorned setting-l'orth of tin; present  financial -posilion of lhe province,  without any . attempt to place . an  undue value on future possibilities or-  to misrepresent existing facts.  Throughout, the speech was every  evidence of careful painstaking endeavor, and of ii conscientious and by  no means unsuccessful attempt to dn  the very best with Iho materials in  hand. Tho Minister's utterances, in  short, were in a, lone and of u naturo  to still further increase that belief in  tlioir ability to administer advantageously thc affairs of this province, which  thc present Govern merit ha.s already  instilled into the peoplo.  It i.s impossible in an article of this  limited description, to do more than  glance at the Finance "Minister's  speech. He pointed out that there  had been, for the first time in (lie  history of the province, a small surplus of some $27,000 for the fiscal year  ending .Time .10th. HMl-1, and that another surplus was anticipated for the  current fiscal year. But a small  deficit of some fivo or six thousand  dollars must be anticipated���������though  not   arr   absolute   certainty���������for   tho  coming fiscal year covered by the  estimates .-just brought down. This  deficit, should it occur, will be directly  due to the loss of revenue from the  ChineseRestriction Act, which revenue, it is worth noting, amounted to  nearly !j!5000,000 for the year .1903 and  ISOt. Tbe new Education Bill, and  several other reductions in public  expenditures, together with "nntici;  pated large increases in timber royalties and leases, and sales and grants of  land, will be a distinct saving on the  others hand. It is perhaps worth  while reproducing here' the Minister's  general.suinniiiig up of.the position :  *'Wlilist,!* he said,. "thero were no  signs of-'boom' or. undue inflation, the  reports, both commercial and agricultural, fr-orrr allpiirts of the province  indicated a condition of; general prosperity, improving business conditions  and progress.

True he carried  his point so far as the wearing of wigs  is concerned, but it was at the cost of  such merciless ridicule that he counts  his victory a very Pyrrhic one. .Why,  tliey are calling hiin "Barber" in the  House now, and scarcely a member  gets up but 'has. something to say  about the Ashcroft gentleman's interest in wigs. There lire several circumstances, it riiay be remarked,  connected with the bringing in of  this extraordinary arid undignified  piece of freak legislation on the part  of the Liberals which are .probably  better not discussed here. At all  events, the Ashcroft barber has committed political suicide very thoroughly.  Po.ssihly Mr. Henderson realized  this himself on Thursday, when he  opened the evening session by continuing tiie debate on the Budget.  The appalling fact must then have  dawned upon him that the House  refused an;' longer to  take him seri  ously.      After a few criticisms of   the  style   of   orator1}*   employed    by   the  Only the day previous he had said to  the Finance Minister, in dignified nnd  austere tones, in the lobby of the  liouse, "I occupy the position of financial critic in the ranks of the Opposition." But it was more than a trille  wearisome after the first laugh was  over, and by the time Mr. Henderson  took a tumble to himself and his seal  at the same time, Ihero were only  eleven members on his sido and nine  on the Government benches, left in  the House lo listen to the Napoleon of  Provincial Finance.  The cliief amii*-eiiicnl. of Thursday,  however, was provided earlier in the  day. by Mr. Murphy (Cariboo) who  made a very amusing speech. Had he  refrained fronr insulting the poverty  and misfortunes of others, his remarks  would have been most enjoyable.  But the true Liberal'contempt for the  poor got thc better of his wisdom  when he took to discussing the Lillooet election.. He had not, he said,  been able to comprehend the Government's victory there, until he came  across the following paragraph in the  Report on Agriculture for 11102:  "It is just possible that the disease  among the cuttle on the west side of  the river'is 'malignant caturrh.' Since  writing to you last t have learned that  the disease has been more or loss  virulent there for several years past.  Want of any reasonable care, starvation in the winter from lack of food  and water, in breeding by little  starved runts of hulls, and general  laziness- and dirt on the part of the  owners are bound to establish disease."  This, said the witty Liberal from  .Cariboo, he took to be an accurate  description of the Lillooet electors.  Lazy, dirty, shiftless and worthless,  these poor starving cattle had fallen  easy victims to Government bribery.  This coarse and indecent sneer at  respectable and .hardworking settlers  was a little too much for the House,  and when Mr. Henderson at the evening session, and the wealthy John  Oliver, on Friday, practically endorsed  the Cariboo member's cruel attempt  at wit, the Chief Commissioner of  Lands and Works gave these typical  Liberals a very severe roasting.  There is not "space here for hi.s remarks, but it is likely lo be somo timo  THE REVELSTOKE WINE 8s. SPIRIT CO.  LIMITED.  IMPORTRES   AND WHOLESALE DEALERS.

Mr. Henderson  remarked that owing to the Govei n-  rucnt, the Legislature had accomplished nothing during the present session.  lloss (Fernie) promptly struck in  "Whj*. what ahout the wig bill?" and  the House roared.  Mr. Henderson was inub'i'sl.nod to  sny, amid tho shouts of laughter from  both sides uf the House, that the wig  bill was the only s'-nsiblc tiling which  had happened (renewed merriment).  Then Mr. Henderson started upon a  speech which excited tho won  the House and grave anxiety among  his friends. After fiercely denouncing  the government and the estimates, he  p.'iid a similar compliment to tbe  dyking and assessment bills, wandered  into details arid anecdotes about other  countries and provinces, abused the  secretary of the Hoard of Health for  getting loo much pay, thought the.  cost of administration of justice was  loo great, sneered at the Lillooet  voters in thc recent election, saying  that ono-third of them wero'Government employees, pitied the Attorney-  General (the portfolio which Mr.  Henderson himself is said to covet.)  for his. strenuous lifo, and dropped  ngnin into conversational tit-bits.  It was probably thu most extraordinary rigmarole ever beard in tlie  House. - And the cream of tho whole  joke was tho Ashcroft gentleman's  sublime unconsciousness of the exhibition   he   was  making   of    himself.  before the Liberal policy of ridiculing  the poor and industrious settlers of  the country is again practiced iir the  House.

Not at all discouraged, the member  for Delta returned to the charge on  Friday, desiring the appointment of  an Enquiry Commission in regard lo  certain Kitimaal land grants, about  which his keen nn������e detected n doubtful odour, lie would move for this on  Monday.

It was rather moro than a week  after Markham Fulf, uml the glow  of the tailing nun added n deeper  crimson to the turning leu ves, and  made pillars of bronze of the treos  in which the caravans were pitched.  Immediately after Markhuni Fuir  the tribe had . again divided, and  the portion oncampod in the glade  was that which Koyce had first  joined.  Madge and Jack ws.ro not present  at the usual supper hour, and their  absence ca'tsed some comment, especially from Uncle .Jake, who on  thi.s ovening had left his owrr de-  tachmtmt, and como to visit tho section of the tribe with which Madgo  was  directly  connected.  About ten o'clock Madgo made her  appearance. Sho had evidently beon  to town, for she bore sundry packages ooataining toys and candies  for the children. She declined to  partake of refreshments, and seemed thoughtful and abstracted. As  she approached the now deserted  camp-fire she lookod down at it with  a dreamy smile on hor lips. Every  now and then she raised her head  as if she were listening, and the  rich color would rise to the pale  face, and then die away as sho bent  her head again. But presently she  heard a step sho had never yet mistaken, and glancing around . almost  apprehensively, sho glided quickly to  the wood and waited under the thick  yellow  leaves.  The sound of the approaching steps  grew more distinct as thoy crashed  over the drooping bracken, and in  another minute 'Koyco's tail figuro  stood near  her.  She hid behind the trunk of a tree  and, woman-like, kept him standing  looking for her for a minute before  she stepped forward. Royce Oaught  her in his arms and kissed her upturned  face.  "Who wore you looking for,  Jack?"   she  whispered.  "You nearly frightened me," he  said, no answer being necessary. "I  was afraid you had not got back;  that something had happened to my  ���������my Madgo!" and he prcssetl her to  him.  "I got back all right," she said.  "But Jack, I waited to seo you to  tell yon that Uncle Jake is here; "I  saw him as I como from the town.  Why has he corae, do you think?"  and she looked up at him anxiously.  "It's a new thing to see you nervous, Madjje."  "I am afraid ho might suspect."  "Oh, nonsense." ho said. "Iio has  only come back for his favorite pipe,  or to borrow somo money from  Davy or rae. Ancl ho shall have it,  too: I couldn't refuso any one anything to-night. And they say that  thero is no such thing as happiness  in   this  world!"  He laughed; and though it was  softly enough, Madge looked around  and  clung to  him.  "Oh, hush!" she murmured lovingly, warniugly. "They aro all around  us���������they may see us. Happy, are  you really happy?" and her dark  eyes dwelfe upon his scarchingly, yet  with  passionate  tenderness.  "The happiest man that ever wore  shoe-leather," said Royce. "Come a  little farther into the wood, dearest."  "N'o, no," she said, putting him  from her, yet with a caress even as  she did it. "I must go back and  put Tony to bed."  "And after?" he said, still holding  her. "Will you come out afterward,  Madge? Come to the brook. There  is going to be a splendid moon presently.. See," and ho took her faco  in  his hands  and turned it upward.  She just glanced &t the sky, but  hcr oyos went back to his, as if  grudging  even   a  moment.  "Let me go now,  Jack,"  she mur-  - mure<]:rJ*a.rt<l-I���������will-come'back^in-an  hour.    List/n���������what    is   that?"      and  she broke from  him.  "One  of  thc horses  broke     loose,"  he said.    "It is  the young colt,  confound him.    Now I shall have to go.  But  in  an  hour,  Madgo���������nn  hour!"'  He   let    her   go inch by  inch;     hisi  eyes holding her even when his hands  had released her. and Madge went  slowly back lo the tfurnva". She  p.'it Tony to bed, nntl then camo  out nnd sat beside the camp-fire; her  hands clasped lightly in hcr lap, her  eyes with tho strange novel shynosa  glowing in them, hidden under their  long lushes.  A lato thrush sung in the tree near  her, a evening breeze made music  through the leafy bougliB; tho vory  air seemed porfumod; and tho moments glided by with fairy footsteps  for Madgo was tasting that brief do-  lirium which the gods give, perhaps,  onco in her life to overy woman,  and  which  we call  joy.  Half an hour before this a post-  chaise drovo up to the door of the  inn in the town near the camp. Tho  horses were jaded an panting, the  postillion tired and cross, and he  8 woro as' he got off his horse, and  eyed it and its follow for a moment or two before he went to the  window.  "Bog pardon, sir," ho ������ai'd to somo  one insido. "but my 'ossos is clean  beat."  The door opened and Seymour step-  pod out. He lookod as tired as the  postillion, and sullen and ill-tempered in the bargain.  "What place is this?" ho asked.  "Crosby," said tho man. "If we  nre to go farther to-night, I must  have a chango of  'osses, sir."  "Can we got them hero?" asked  Seymour. Tho postillion nodded reluctantly as he thought of the  comfortable kitchen and the supper  that awaited him if his passengers  would  only stop.  "Will; you stay th'e night horo,  mother?"  The countess was leaning back, her  eyes closed, holding Irene's hand.  She sat up and looked at Seymour,  and beyond him at the setting sun.  "Can we not go on?" she said in  a low,  strained voice.  "We^can go on till doomsday, or  the end of the worfd if you wish  it," he said with ill-suppressed irritation. "But the question is'whether you are strong enough to endure  oven another hour's journey."  "I     am   quite   strong,"  said     the  countess.    "It   is   Irene "  "Do not think of me, dear. I  would rather go on, if you are sure  you can  boar it."  "We will go on. 1 cannot rest; besides,   we may  miss   them  again."  "I think that's very likely," said  Seymour aa ho helped them to  alight-  Both tho countess and Ii-eno looked pale and weary, but there was in  each of their faces, and shining in  their eyes, tho look of proud ,'-inbo-  lief .with which they had met Seymour's assertion of Koyco's degradation.  Tho countess drew her fur cloak  around hcr and looked up at the  sky.  ���������'When and how will this end?'  she murmured.  "So not be afraid, dear.   If we find  him     it   will   be  to   prove  that     the  story   is  a   lie.    With  every  mile     we  huve    come    my    trust  in   him  grown  stronger!    You  will see."  "It     will     take  half   an  hour     to  proud shoulders, and drank somo  wine before replying; then with a  smile he said:  "Your faith does you infinite credit, my dear Irene. Not oven tho  description of tho 'strange gentleman,' who tho gypsies wo caught up  with after Markham Fair told us  had joined them, appears to shake  your conviction that I have concocted this story. That part of the  direction, and tho landlord tells us  i that, gypsies nro encamped near  here. If    we   do   not     find   Koyce  among them, I shall bo very much  mistaken."  "You did not" find him before;  you will not now," sho said proudly*  "Timo will prove," ho said. "Will  you  not have some  wino?"  She declined wilh a motion of her  hand,     and,   going   to   the     window.  " And This is No Romance Either "  UNLESS YOU HAVE USED  STARTING A GARDEN.  Many persons living within or  near a largo town wtJuld grow thoir  own garden stuff if they knew how  simple it is to manage such an undertaking and whnt largo returns  muy bo obtained.

Tho sullen postboy announced that  the horses wero ready, and, escorted by the obrequious landlord, the  countess and Ireno entered the carriage  followed   by  Seymour.  Scarcely a word was spoken as  tlic fresh horses dashed along tho  road, but Irene's hand held the  countess' as before, and every now  and then sho drew the fur cloak  around the elder woman, or raised  hcr hand  to  her lips.  They had been traveling for days.  By tho time they had reached Markham the gypsies had left tho place,  and Seymour had hit upon the track  of the larger part of- the tribe, and  so missed Royco. But by diligent  inquiry he had learned that a  strange gentleman had' joined the  tribe, and that he had gone south  with a detachment. Thereupon Seymour had tried to induce his mother  and Irene to return to Monk Towers  and leave him to pursue the trail.  But the countess had announced her  resolution to go on; and for three  days they had followed the trail,  sometimes being led astray by ignorant directions, and at others hitting upon it by mere chantfe, us tonight  able depth in uutuinn and allowed to  remain us turned up by tho spado  through the winter. Freezing pulverizes the clods wonderfully. If vcry  poor, a liberal amount of well rotted stable manure should bo stirred  into tho ground when it is broken  for planting.  A .largo garden is relatively easy  to care for; it is possible to uso  plow and cultivutor and to get  along with very little hnnd work. A  smaller garden, if not fenced, may  be tended with a horse if the rows  are imade parallel. ,For a small  garden, however, hand labor is sufficient. ' Great care should be taken  in the preparation of tho soil. The  seed bed should be in the finest possible condition. It will then be  easy to keep it free from Weeds, and  to keop t.he plants in thrifty, growing condition.  WHAT TO PLANT  in the garden will depend largely  upon the likes and dislikes of tho  family. It is always best to plant  a considerable variety and in succession. There will thus be a constant supply of young anil fresh  ciops. If the space is small it is  best economy to grow crops that will  furnish quick and ''onstant supply.  These include pens, beans-, raddishes,  lettuce,   tomatoes,   beets,   etc.,   which  UNDERGROUND IN LONDON  BUILDERS OI* THE METBOPOLI-  ~    TAN  RAILWAY.

"I suppose you  havo  a    great! the .fire,  many  tramps���������and gypsies here?"  warm, but sheep should have a place  to keep dry, writes Mr. Frank Kuh-  len. Naturo gives them a coat that  will keep them warm any kind of  weather, but does not keep oil the"  wator. In fact, when tho fleece becomes soaked to tbo skin, the cold  is very readily conducted to tho  sheep and a sheep is quite easily  frozen to death. An open shed, i  believe, is tho healthiest place for  wintering sheep. Thoy seem lo eat  thoir feed better and fat sheep can  bo mado to gain faster than where  crowded in a closed barn.  Fat sheep should havo a small  inclosure adjoining thoir feeding-  shed, which should bo covered with  litter of some kind���������straw or stover.  After once covered over in the early  winter, it is not much trouble to  keop a sheep lot covered unless it is  an exceptionally open winter. For  breeding sheep, it is nice to have a  grass paddock of several acres, ovcr  which they may run all bright days  when  tho ground is frozen.  Tho watering and feeding of sheep  are not given the attention they deserve. The very best way for watering is to have the water before  thorn all of the time. Unless ono has  spring water in the pen, I should advise one of the tank heaters,- as they  do away with much of the inconvenience of outsido watering. One can  lose enough time in one month cutting out ice to pay for coal to keep  a heater going all winter. Besides  this the pleasure of having the water  there every morning and not having  to work clearing thc trough only  to have it freeze up before half of  the sheep have had a, drink is enough  to pay for all  trouble.  Regularity should govern all of  the feeding of farm animals, but I  think there are none that will respond to regularity as fully as sheep.  Thoy do not care to bo fed early or  late, but want their meals at a regular time. T know ot one farmor who  'fed his sheep vory early most overy  morning, but ono or two mornings a  .week, he would feed a couple of hours  later. ' T never*saw a man have his  sheep tiff reed as much as he did.  That may have not been the -only  reason, or any of it, but it was-lho  case and wo-have to take.; things^ as'  they arc.  What to feed - sheep" depends upon  the" locality nnd surroundings'. For  fat sheep, alfalfa und corn, with a  littlo stover makes an ideal feed. If  there is no alfalfa, clover can bo substituted, but when feeding clover, it  is well to put in one-fourth by  weight of bran or oats in tho corn.  For breeding stock, it is better to  have quite a variety of foods, but  alfalfa or clover should be the main  rough feed. Corn should not form  a very large part of tho feed for  ewes. If raising winter lam'bs, tho  ewes should have everything that  will produce milk, just, 'the samo as  a dairy cow, and the laimbs should  havo a creep that they mny get  grain where tho old sheep cannot got  it.       *   * ,/.-*".���������  If the sheep were shorn in the fall,  they Will come through the winter in  better shape. If tliey have not been  fall shorn, shear early in the spring.  The results will.be very gratifying  in the lamb crop.  WON'T LEAVK-THE SPOT.  Strange Devotion of  Poor Woman  to an  English Village.  Uu almost incredible story of attachment to a spot, sacred because  it was onco home, conies from Rhos-  market, an old-world village about  three iniles from Milfor'd Haven,  England.  Mrs. Martha Davis spent her married lifo thero in the cottage lu  which she was born. Her husband is  dead, her four children aro scattered,  and now sho is alone and shelterless  at  the  age  of sixty.  Several years ago th'o widow's  humble home foil into - decay, . and  was condemned as unfit for habitation. Its solitary inmate refused to  leave, but was evicted. ' She went  no . further than the garden, how-  over. Thoro she lived in tho midst  of her crumbling furniture, watching the rise of a how dwelling on  the site of hcr old home.  The now house is now finished and  inhabited, and tho widow has been  driven from tho garden with hor  fow belongings. But still she lingers near, and has settled herself on  the wide, grassy fringe of the country road, so as to be within sight,  at any rate, of the only spot sho  hns over known as homo.  For more than two years she has  endured hot and cold weather, rain,  snow, frost, and tho bitter winds of  winter. She may not light a fire  cither for cooking or for warmth, or  tho police will order her away, and  her only shelter is a bedstead partly  covered. Sho exists on 2s a week,  which she receives from tho board of  guardians.  FENCE WIRE   SHOULD NOT   BE  TAXED.  (To   be..Continued.)   f    .  PREMATURE   BURIAL.  "Now and again, sir.

Nearly  every dealer has some preparation of  his  own to  offer.  Thorough cures for coughs and  colds are rare, and when you find a  medicine that you can rely on for  such affection������, as well as croup,  whooping cough, bronchitis, and asthma, you do  well to ������tlck to  it.  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and  Turpentine has by far the largest  sale of any such remedy on the market. 2nd as the demand increases by  leaps aad bounds evory year wo believe this is due to tha peculiar merits  of  this  preparation.  You only need to bc reminded that  it is sometimes necessary to Insist  on getting what you ask for. Dealers have other preparations of linseed and turpentine put up to look  a-s nearly as possible like Dr. Chase's  nnd liecause of largo profits may try  the imitation.  There is one way to f>e sure, and  that   is  by  seeing  the  portrait     and  signaturo of Dr.  Chase on  the  wrapper.  Do not be contented to take any  preparation oITerod you been use it  is "only a cold." Colds lead to tho  most fatal of diseases, and you cannot afford to take risks with new  and  untried  treatments.  Mrs. Geo. Good, Tichbornc, Ad-  dington Co., Ont., writes: "Tt is  with pleasure that I corl.ify to thn  wonderful success of Dr. Chase's  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine as  a cure for colds.

From childhood to old ago, from  tho time when croup threatens tho  baby's life until the aged father or  mother are victims of osthmn, Dr.  Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Tur*  pentino is tho most efficient treatment obtainable; 25 cents a bottle,  nt all deolers, or Rdmanson, Ual.es  &  Co.,  Toronto.

" j  "There  is  only  one   infallible     test:  of death,  nnd  that is the presence ofj  decomposition,"   said     Dr.     Hooker, j  "Certain   tests     nre   prescribed     and  carried   out   in   the  cases   of   members  of  our  association;   but  even     these,  in   thn   absence   of   putrefaction,     are  not   infallible.

"I cannot, say, of course, how  many people nre buried alive. The  instances of exhumation are corn  pnratively few, and an order is only  granted iiy the Home Secretory for  the most important reasons. Vou  pmy lake it. however, that there  have beon thousands of cases of pro-  mature  burial."  One of tho chii^f sources of peril,  Dr. Hooker said, is the practice, by  medical men of granting certificates  without seeing the body. "A doctor  is attending a patient who lives six  or seven miles awny," he said, "and  some one runs to his house with tho  information that the patient i.s dead.  The doctor at once signs a corlifi-  ente. Such' a course should bo mado  illegal."  HOT������ED  ESSENTIALS.  ���������   o :���������..  Every  farmor  should  make  a  hotbed  this spring.      It is a simple device  froiii which springs an immense  aimount  of  pleasure  and  profit.      If  the  wife  or  daughter  is   taking-  care  of a flower garden there should    Jie  *,ffi"ioth'eF^l^ired~"iM|^i'S"lly~f(ir"^^h"er=  use.     The essentials are only a long  and   narrow   box  in  which   to  secure  bottom heat, and a sash of glass to  cover  it.      During  tho  winter     days  almost     any     farmer  can   mako  the  sash  for himself  and  build   tho  box.  Now-a-days   tho    hotbed   is generally  placed directly on the ground; sometimes  half  in     and  half  out.        Tho  best  gardeners   think  the  pit  should  be   quite   shallow,   so   that   the   bent  shall  not be drawn from  the innnuro  into   the  cold   earth.     Make  a   level-  topi>cd   pile   of  fresh     horse  manure,  with   about    the same  quantity     of  straw   or     litter,   1   or   5   foot   high.  Sprinkle       occasionally      with     hot  water, nnd  turn  the heap occasionally   to  secure     uniform   fermentation.  Now   hiiild   the   bed   by  spreading     a  coarso  litter  at   the  hot loin,   and   on  it  a  couplo  of  feet  of  manure.      (hi  thi������ place a layer of  leaf  mold,   and  on  top of all  about  5  inches of  fine  garden soil.      In  placing the manure  in  the pit.  spread  it in  layers about  fi incht'A  thick.      Now sow your seed  nnd   be. careful   to  avoid   overheating  at. any tlmo,  especially when the Mini  comes  out  suddenly.        Sprinkle  the  frarrwi at. night,  then close up invariably so  long an  there  in any danger  of chilling  the  plants.     An  old  hotbed can  be used for a cold  fram������ to  grow   plants   more   slowly   thnn      in  heat,   or  to  protect roses  during the  winter.  Tho Dominion Govorh'ment did a  good thing for tho farmers of Canada when it placed certain grades of  fence wire on the free list a few  years ago. Since then galvanized  smooth wire Nos. 9, 12 and IU,  which aro most used in farm fencing,  has beon kept down in price to a  place which enabled thousands .������of  farmers ' to replace . old unsightly,  wasteful, 'wooden fences, with neat,  new 'wire structures, thereby improving their 'own "property ami enhancing the ��������� value of the surrounding  neighborhood. Now ft transpires  that pressure is being brought to  bear upon the Government to go  back to tho old order of things by  imposing a customs duty on tbesu  grades of wire. That such a change  would work injury to the farming  community admits of no argument.  At-present, practicully none of tho  grades of wire on the free list aro  manufactured in Canada, so that  any duty that would bo put on tho  wire would prove an equal tax upon  the consumer���������tho farmer. A tariff  of say 25 por cent, would (undoubtedly enhance thc cost of fencing fully  ten to fifteen cents per rod. This  woulcl mean that (he.owner of a medium-sized farm would havo to bear  an extra tax of fully $150 to fence  hia farm. Were fencing an unimportant matter there would bo no reason  for alarm, but with the passing of  tho old fences, and the increasing attention to stock raising, new fencing  Is  an absolute  necessity.     ...  In the older parts of the Dominion  the improvement of farm buildings  and the construction; of new fences  liavo boon making, very . rapid strides  during the'past -few years, and 'it  woul'd provo a very unfortunate matter if a check were given to this  much-needed advance by the imposition of a tax lhat could work no  b_etT6Bt"^it6i^th'e=ifarmer-rand=at==Itha  same timo hamper tho Canadian  manufacturers of fencing who uso  wire as a raw material, llalher than  hamper farm improvement, and do-  moralize an industry important to  agriculture, by placing wire which is  now admitted free of 'duty on the  dutiable list, it would be much better to wipe out the present tariff of  20 per cont. on Nos. 7 and 1.1, wliich  would enable farmers to get a stronger style of fence without increasing*  tho cost.

Municipal authorities had hopefully  incurred tho heavy cost of new thoroughfares. But still the carts and  cabs and omnibuses left each other  no adequate room for movement.

Tho 30,000 subterranean travellers  of tho first day wero but a minority  of those who aesirod tickets. In  a little whilo London was throwing  up its cap. .ThotralHc problem had  boen solved.  Parliament was promptly bombarded with underground ' railway  bills, so that, had a majority of the  schemes bcon carried out, half the  city must have beon pulled down to  accommodate tho stations. . A joint  camlmitteo sat on those bills and Sir  John Fowler's guiding principle of  an inner and outer circle was evolved. Manifestly that recent shower  of tuho bills was but an historical  repetition.  Constructing tho Underground was  brainy. work. For one thing, the  Fleet sower kept gotting'in the.'-way.'

And have you over noticed,. O Metropolitan travelers, that the Great  Northern and Midland trains a"ro on  your left at King's Cross and on  your right at Farringdon-street?  That curving of one underground  tunnel under another was ongincering  genius. Near   Portland-road     the  lino had to bob beneath the nursemaids' subway, giving access under  the now road between tho crescent  and square.

For a girl named  Therese, a turquoise, a hyacinth,  threo emeralds, a ruby and a sapphire, arranged in proper order,  would bo selected.  The embroidered linon blouse and  the shirt waists, of linon, choviot,  madras, etc., show no strikingly  new phases. Mercerized cottons are  still fancied, but thero is less demand for thc vcry heavy mercerized  s'hirt-waist materials than thoro was  a season or two ago.  Double links with which to fasten  high linen collars aro to bo among  the spring novelties, it is said,  which will arrive in a profusion of  smart designs.  Scarf and stiokpins with miniature  heads in-whioh favorite pets aro immortalized are among the latest  crazes. The best miniature painters, to satisfy the demand, are devoting hours to dogs' and horses'  "sittings." The work is done on  porcelain by the aid of a microscope.  One feature noted at the beginning  of this season bids fair to remain in  hig-hest favor, and that is the transparent guimpo or yoke. At least a  third of all the gowns seen lately  have been made with a thin guimpe  nnd collar, and most of these had  corresponding     undersleeves. The  fashion is extremely pretty and feminine, and it should bc encourngod  to stay as long as possible.  Among the new neckwear is a collar made of natural colored linen,  accompanied by a double front tab  of. white pique and the linen, the  latter above. The turnover collar  anrl linen tab are embroidered with  red, blue or brown dots.  . Broderle Anglaiso, or eyelet embroidery, is still very much the  thing, and most of all the all-over  embroideries and flouncings are of  this order. The robe patterns, too,  both in linon and batiste, are in  eyelet designs. The heavy raised  embroideries  are  also  popular.  Very handsome are the embroidered bamls in linen," crash an'd batiste,  which are to be used for trimming  linen and othor wash dresses. Thero  is plenty of room left on either edge  to allow for attaching to thc plain  fabric. These lrands will be used  for panels, almost all the new skirts  requiring something of this sort.  A pretty way to give a needed  touch of color to an evening frock  is to introduce under a lace bertha  a rirfflc of white net, edgwl with a  narrow ribbon. The ribbon should  just glimmer below the laco ovei*  it.  The florists are showing dwarf lilac trees in full .bloom, and any  number of Japanese plum amd apple  trees. . These make lovely decorations, costing no moro than cut  (lowers, and lasting much longer.  Thoy aro charming for cornets, for  piano decorations, or to fill any  space where a tall jar of flowers is  appropriate.

How it is  Caused by Bad Blood,  and Why Cured by Dr. Williams'  Pink xxj.i..  Not many years ago doctors  thought rheumatism was only a local pain caused by cold or wot in  ageing joints and muscles. Now they  know that rheumatism, is caused by  the blood becoming tainted with uric  acid from disordered liver and kidneys. This acid eats into the vital  organs. It destroys their Vitality,  contracts tho muscles, stilVcns the  joints and irritates tho nerves. Then  cold and wet make every bono" groan  with aching rheumatism. You blame  tho weather, but tho real causo is  acid In the blood. Tho stiffness  spreads and tho pains grow worso  each year until you are a helpless  cripple, tortured day ami night. Perhaps the disease may spread to tho  heart���������and that means sudden death.  You must not nogloct rhcunintisnii���������  but you can't curo It with liiiinvcnts,  plasters or hot cloths. They cannot  possibly touch tho blood. The only  suro scientific curo is Ur. Williams'  Pink Pills, because they actually  make new blood. They sweep out tho  painful acid, loosen tho joints, and  muscles, brace up tho nerves, and  strengthen the liver and kidneys for  their work in casting out impurities.  This is proved by the thousands of  suffering rheumatics who have beon  made well and strong by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Mr. T. H. Smith,  of Caledonia, Ont., is one of theso  many witnesses. He says: "For a  number of years I was badly troubled  with rheumatism, and'was so crippled up I could scarcely do any  work. I tried a number of medicines, but they did not help mc. I.  saw Dr. Williams' Pink Pills advertised as a cure for rheumatia:n and  decided to try them. Before tho  third box was gone I found myself  much better. I continued to uso  the pills throughout tho winter and  they havo completely cured me. I  got so T-could work on tho coldest  day without a coat and not feel a  twinge     of     the  trouble. I  think  every rheumatic sufferer should  promptly take Dr. Williams' Pink  Fills."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure men  and women who are crippled with  lumbago, rheumatism, sciatica, paralysis and even locomotor ataxia, because they ��������� actually make new, rich  red blood. This new blood sweeps  the painful, poisonous impurities out  of thc system and puts thc whole*  body into a healthy state. Nothing  but good rich blood can do that���������  and nothing can give you healing  blood except Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. If the blood is bad thc  nerves are bad, for tho nerves feed  on the blood. That is the cause of  sleeplessness, nervousness, hysteria,  St. Vitus dance, neuralgia, and loss  of vitality in men and women. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills faithfully used  cure theso diseases and othor blood  disorders such as anaemia, biliousness, indigestion, heart troubles,  backache, kidney trouble and decline. But you-must get the genuine pills. The "something elsc just  as good" medicine which some dealers try to persuade thoir customers  to take never cured nnything nor  anyone.

Good     Progress   Towards    Union  Being Made.  In a description of the progress  which is being made with the Cape  to Cairo telegraph, a writer in the  Glasgow Herald states that the lino  has now reached Udjidji, the capital  and chief town of German East  Africa, which is on the eastern shore  of "Lako Tanganyika." For tho  moment construction work is suspended while the route northward is  carefully surveyed and the sections  of the lino that have bcon erected aro  got into thorough working order.  From a purely commercial point of  view the line is fully coming up to  if not exceeding, the expectations  that wero formed concerning it. When  tho work of construction is recommenced tho route will probably bo  along the eastern shoro of tho Victoria Nynnza, and will then striko  due north to the town of Rosarcs,  which is the southernmost point of  tho Soudanese telegraph system. A  junction will be effected hero betweon tho two linos, and tho scheme  for a "Cape to Cairo" telegraph  will then bo an accomplished fact.  The engineers of the lino aro, however, faced with a difiiculty in their  preparations for carrying*-it forward  to Udjidji, inasmuch as the country  for a distance of 100 miles through  which the lino would have to pass  is vcry swampy, and quite unlit for  thc erection of a telgrnph wire. It  was at first thought that a wido  detour would have to be mado at  this point in order to escape this  region, but latterly other councils  have prevailed, and a much moro  daring experiment is likely to be  tried. This is the installation of  the Marconi system of wireless telegraphy in order to bridge over this  inhospitable 'delta country. This  combination of an African jungle  swamp with the latest triumph of  scientific discovery reads very  strangely, but it is only another  instance of the onward march of  civili'/ation through what wore unlil  a comparatively few years ago the  unknown parts  o    tho earth.  r  YOUNG AGAIN  AT SEVENTY-TWO  HOW  CALIXTE RICHARD,  J.

Poles are the people chiefly affected,  and an account of their present legal  status is published which helps to  explain the irreconcilable bitterness  toward the Government which marks  thc popular attitude.  In the code of laws they aro deseribed only as "persons of Polish  origin," and as "natives of the  West Territory and the Czardom of  Poland." They may not acquiro  land, although their inherited habits  are agricultural. They cannot bequeath land as they choose, and thc  compulsory sales of estates broken  up among collateral branches, together with the exclusion of Poles  from land purchases, have led to  many properties falling into the hand  of local   officials  at' low  prices.  Poles are not by practice allowed  to fill local official posts. Those  who enter tho civil service got ; re-",  mote appointments, in Siberia or tho  Caucasus. In tho army they are  drafted into remote regiments, and  the_maximi:m_of "senior "or~sta(T~offi--  ccrs who arc Poles may noj. exceed  a  low  percentage.  Thoso who enter Stato civil service  must exchange 'into orthodox communion. Tho Polish language is  completely forbidden in tho West  Territory. It may not be spoken in  any public assembly.  Shopkeepors must givo a written  undertaking to permit no conversation in Polish in their establishments. Polish childr.en must  rcceivo their Catholic religious instruction in the Russian speech. In  the large town of Vilna, where half  | the inhabitants have Polish for their  mother tongue, it is forbidden to  speak Polish in tho Nobles' Club,  and in the post office printed notices  forbid the uso  of tho language.  Under Princo Svia'topolk Mirsky's  humane government of the northwest  Part of this-territory "the. more irritating and senseless of the language  ordinances were allowed to lapse,  but jthat was on his individual responsibility, an'd outside tho Imperial Code of Laws and Ordinances,  which are as above described.  How Russian officials curb the reform spirit is shown by thoir handling  of educational  gatherings.  The Russian Congress of Natural  Science Teachers which has been sitting has been closed by order of tho  curator of tho Educational district.  The   congress   sent , tho  following \  telegram  to  the Minister  for  Public  Instruction, und to thc Committee of  Ministers:  "The unsatisfactory and abnormal  position -of Russian schools and  -teachers is due to the social organization of thc Russian State. The  schools can only be freed from this  positions by the carrying into elTect  of all the resolutions passed by the  Zemstvo representatives at the St.  Petersburg conference."  The Nijni-Novgorod Teachers' Association held a- conversazoine in celebration of the.tenth anniversary of  its foundation. It was largely attended and subjects of current "interest were discussed. .The debate at  one point became somewhat excited  and the police entered thc assembly  room to disperse the meeting with  drawn swords. In the scuffle ��������� which  ensued some ladies were thrown to  the. ground and about ton persons  received' injuries. The mayor and tha  president of the provincial government department have complained to  the governor of tho conduct of the  police, and a popular protest is to  be addressed to the town council on  the subject, asking that the police  shall be compelled to observe tho  law.  Tho Odessa Literary antl Artistic  Association has been closed by tho  Prefect of Odessa for violating its  statutes of incorporation pending the  drafting of new regulations. At the  meetings of the association,' -which  has a membership of 1,500, all kinds  of political subjects  wero discussed.  ���������UTUtiyMMyd, >&7utunea^ c*e<*vfe<t{/ -&u, J?4  DIFFERENT.

Down at Hot Springs, Ark., the  visitors have all sorts of complaints,  but it is a subject of remark that  ttie groat majority of them have  some trouble with stomach and  bowels. This may bo partly attri-  butod  to  the heavy, medicines.  Naturally, under" tlie "coriditionsr  the question of food is very prominent.

Hot Springs for rheumatism and his stomach trouble got  worse. One duy nt breakfast the  waiter, knowing his condition, suggested hc try Grape-Nuts and croum,  which ho did, and found the food  agreed with, him perfectly.  After the second day. he began to  sleep .peacefully at night, different  than he had for years. The perfect  digestion of tho food quieted hi.s  nervous system and made sleep possible.  He says: "The next morning I was  astonished to find my condition of  constipation hatl disappeared. I  could not believe it true after, suffering for so many years; then I took  more interest in tho food, read the  little book, "The Road to Wellville," and started following tho  simple directions.  "I have met with such results  that in the last five weeks I have  gained eight pounds in spite of hot  baths which take away the flesh  from anyone.

A curious case has been engaging  for some timo tho criminal court at  Tilsit, Germany. A Fraulein Hih-  ios set up in business as a "naturo  healer," using simple and ordinary  rational means as her entire stock-  in-trade. In the courso of her practice a child whom sho was treating  died, nnd an action wns brought  aKninst_herJo^_manslaughtcr. lior  counsel, a man of extreme ability,  argued that, in Fraulein Ribio's methods thero was absolutely nothing  criminal. Sho made no pretensions  to tho possession of secret powers,  but simply rolled on nature. He  pointed out that two of tho most  notable names in modern German  medical science, Drs. Lnhmann and  Schweninger, were identified with  tho methods which Ribios had adopted. -Dr. Ldlunnnn was tho director  of the famous establishment near  Dresden, to which thc highest in tho  Inntl resorted, including members of  the reigning family. Dr. Schweninger was Bismarck's body "physician.  It would, counsel maintained, bo a  miscarriage of justice to condemn  Ribios for - practicing the elementary  rules of hygiene. The jury acquitted  her, and thc Stnte was condemned to  pay the costs of the action.  MESSRS. C. C. RICHARDS & CO.
