Revelstoke to-morrow at 2:30 p.m. shaip.  On Saturday last a fast and brilliant  game between the City and the C. P.  R. shops resulted in a win for lhe  shops by 3 goals to 2. For the City.  Sissons and Cummings, in the back  division, played a faultless game.  Keifoot, in goal, played a very nice  game too, but at times was inclined  to play too far from his goal. Beavo  also showed very good judgment in  his neat'centreing of the ball. For  the C. P. R., Allen, Hugh and Donaldson were the right men in the right  place, and pillars of strength.  The men,are now blossoming out  into foi m, .and toinon ow will demonstrate whether or not this city can  beat Kamloops." The home team will  on this occasion consist of: Goal, Ker-  foot; Bicks, Sissons, Entwistle; Halt  backs, Ounnniugs, Lyons, Feeney;  Forwards, Smythe, Hugh, Donaldson,  Beavo, Allen. May good luck and a  large gathenng attend them.  This is the liist game of the League  fixtures for the Martin Cup, at present  held by Revelstoke, representing the  championship of the Intciior. Hence  a vast interest centies around the  coming contest.

At quite a lingo meeting held at Dr.  Moirison's rooms on Thursday evening last the Revelstoke Lawn Tennis  Club was dulv organized as follows:  President, C. F. Lindmark; Vice-Pies.  O. B.

Chief Bain, Constable Sturdy and  Provincial Constable Upper were  working on the case all day and everj  effoitis now being made to track  do.wu the murderer.  In the investigation yesterday-by  the coroner and the police, the neigh-  bois in the vicinity ot the bloody deed  were unable to gue any particulars  bejond the iact that the victim was  last seen by a number of the women  about midnight, when she was in good  spints apparently having no piesenti-  ment of the teinble end that was  awaiting her in llic course of a few  hours. It is the opinion of the doctors  that the ciime was committed between 3 arid I o'clock in the moiuing.  Uhemotnefoi llieciimeis not apparent, since tho victim's money and  jewehy weie found untouched in hei  room by Chief Pain, thetefoie it is  similised that��������� either-'jealousy-or revenge for some imaginary wrong  must have piompted the action.

For long it has been more, than  suspected that sun spots have sonic-  thing to do with magnetic storms,  but no one could quite trace tho-  conncction. .Sometimes we had big  sun spots and no magnetic storms,  sometimes vicovcrsa. IjOI'cI Kelvin  a dozen years ngo said what looked  like tho last word on the subject.  Iio declared that there could be no  causal relation between the tvvo phenomena. Reasoning a prion, Ko  pointed out that as any magnetic influence from the sun must in the  naturo of things radiate in,all directions liko light and bent, the influence of tho sun spots on lho magnetic  needle hero might wax and wane,  but could not arrive vvith the sudden  twitch characteristic of the magnetic "slorm."  In substance Mr. Maunder's theory  is that tho forco which suddenly agitates the earth is-not a radiation at.  all, but a stream of attenuated mat-  tor liko a comet's tail,  or of electrically charged particles, shot out front  the' sun   spot  like n  geyser  or    tlio  water  from    ii   lironian's  hose.      Fly-  -  ing upwwd from  tho surface of    tho  spinning  sun,   this' "stream"    rushes  out into space in the form of n great  Catherine  wheel,   or   invisible  wntch-   .  spring spiral.   When tho stream happens  to srikc the earth,  then  we soo  the aerial  fireworks in  the upper afr  overhanging the polo  of this    carth-  mngnot of ours,    ancl  our compasses  and  telegraph  needles jump  with  excitement.   Thus *].,ord   Kelvin's  reasoning is correct, but docs  not apply  to  tlio prosont sot of phenomena.  IN   REGULAR  PEIUOIDS.  Wo  have  given  Mr.   Maudcr's  con-,  elusion;  now     for his   method.      Ho  carefully  ninrked  out     tho     time    of  hundreds     of   magnetic stormi,,    nntl  found  that somo corresponded     with  . big nun spots, and some 'did not.   In  i vain ho'tried to Iind, a correspondence  j with the faculno, 'or flecks of boiling  ! fire  on  thc sun's surface,  and    with  ! tho "prominences." .   At lasl  hc noticed    that    theru   was   frequently  a.  scries of    magnetic   storms at intervals    of    27   l-������' days.      Sometimes  there wns   no   storm    at thc end  of  this period,- but   the storm  was    repeated after exactly  two or three or  such 'intervals.   Now,   this   time���������27  1-3 days���������is just tho -time taken   for  a point on tho sun to go once round  anc? appear opposite the earth again.  It  is  tho rotation  period  of the sun.  as viewed from our moving" planet.  ���������In this "remarkable discovery Mr.  "Maunder, found explanations of many  didicultios. Tho storm arrives generally about 2(5 hours alter the sun '  spot points fairly and squarly nt us.  Presumably that is tho time taken  by the stream of upriishlng particles  to  reach     this  planet.    Hut     though  -tho-storm���������comes; .ngnin���������and���������again   nfter the sun spot' vnnishos. it is generally just nt tho time wlien tbo placo  where tlie sun spot wns is passing us.  Tho sun spot hns gone, but the  stream of magnetic commotion is-  still flying out from tho snino point  on the sun's surface.  Moro than this, and still more ro-  mnrkable. There nro certain favorite points on the sun for thoso sun  spots and the mngnetic slrenms  which Continue nfter they have vanished. A point on tho 222nd degree  of lho sun's longitude is a con!re of  such disturbance.-;, and magnetic  storms constantly arrive when this  point faces tho earth. This facts  points to definite permanent structure in tho sun. 11 cannot bc merely  a churning mass of lire if it has volcanic regions which never change  their situation.  Mr. Maunder, concluded this- most  interesting and suggestive .lecture- by  .showing- eclipse photographs by Mrs.  Maunder and others, in whicli the  long rays of tho sun's Corona ' ariel  'tho outsweoping waves of light from  whoso crest thoy appeared to be flung  off, wore c'ort'ainl.v analogous to the  "stream lines" of magnetic force or  particles which he suggests as the  origin   of   terrestrial   disturbance.

H*orc  GRAND DUCAL PARASITES.  Russian Denunciation  of the     Oppressors of His  Country.  An article in the National Review  by a "High Russian Official," gives  a scourging denunciation of some of  tho evils  of tho Russian  Stato.  Tho anger, of. the author is strong  against the Grand Dukes. "One has  but to rake any money scandal well  enough," he says, "in order to cotino  upon a Grand Buke at tho bottom  of it. While"foreign ladies can realize millions for their smiles' "upon the  scions of the _ Imperial house, these  soldiers with their fostering wounds,  their quivering limbs, and their oozing life blood, are thrown upon heaps  of horse-dung and bumped aiid jolted  for..days.-without medicaments; food,  washing water, or any other antiseptics than the "frost.* And none of  the Grand-Ducal sybarites,- who live  largely on tho money extorted from  the ��������� people, offers: a rouble .-for the  -wduridcd.-or-his-sword-for-the-causo  of the autocracy. We aro neither  puritanical nor. hypocritical in Russia," ho adds, "but we object to a  numerous caste of mere blood-sucking parasites, some of whose lives  arc mado up of unpunished crimes,  mean shifts, colossal frauds, and  outlandish' vices."  But the Czar regards himself' not-  as thc trustee of tho nation, but as  thc owner of so many million souls.  Tho laws are treated with levity, the  press is* stilled, religious convictions  are playe'd with, spies pry into all  men's secrets, education is systematically discouraged, and taxes  moro than the people can bear are  levied, so that "nearly all live in  squalor, ..while the Grand Ducal  Over-Russians appropriate tho funds  destined for the army, . navy, and  other public ', departments, and 'parade in the theatres or tit balls vvith  their favorite ladies." Russia is an  estate, not.-a state, and- for all this  tho writer-v contends . thc Cwir is  primarily' anci ���������directly responsible.  It is part of his- policy,-and he, -of,  his own vvill and by^his'own"resolution, forces il. on the empire in tlie  hnriie of autocracy.   1   IN  A CRADLE  AT SEVENTY.  There is a man of seventy in Paris  named Wallace Suporiicau, who still  sleeps in the cradle he was rocked  in when a baby, and he has never  slept one night of liis long life in  any other bod. Tho youngest of a  family of boys, Wallace retained his  placo in the cradle as he grew older,  lie soon became too tall to lie in it  full length, but he overcome this  difficulty by drawing his knees upward. Each night to this day he  rests hi.s feet squarely on tlio bottom of the cradle, sways his knees  to and fro, and rocks himself to  uloop as ho did whon u small boy.  The habit was 'formed in babyhood  and  never   broken.  vice. They were humble people, and  shortly after tho daughter's lucky  marriage .'the'*.old' woman lost all her  littlo savings in a famous swindle.  She, therefore, applied to her 'daughter for assistance, and, callous to a  degree-one cannot understand, the  ;daugliter olTorod her a situation .as  cook in her house."- As the alternative was thc_poorhouse, tho offer was  accepted.--    ""..>-,.-      _  -    .  -For seven years the old" woman  acted-as-the servant of-the child-she  had " brought into the world, ' -and  while the latter drove about in a  smart carriage tho old "mother used  to scrub the kitchen floor or clean  the front door steps, and do othor  similarly menial work, and during  that long period of hor service she  vvas not allowed n single holiday ,or  a 'day's rest in bed. Ono of the fellow servants was one cla.v dismissed  on the spot for trying to prevent  the inhuman daughter striking hor  mother because she had overslept  herself or felt ill and wished to stay  in bed. Yet the relationship between mistress and cook; was kept ix  profound secret until after the old  woman's death, which occurred, in a  poorliouse infirmary, for ���������'.when she  was so ill as to be incapable of properly fulfilling hor duties, she was  bundled but of the house without  so much a<i the wages which were  due her.  It is-balm to*"one's sense of justice  tb'kriow that the daughter found herself in prison a short time .after her  .mother's death, 'though not for any  offense concerning the poor old woman.

Every winter thero are unfortunate  persons who dread the onset of cold  weather, because it is sure to bring  them a return of their former miseries in the shape of chilblains.  It is a well-known fact thnt frostbite or a severe attack of chilblains  vvill predispose to a recurrence of tho  same trouble iu succeeding years, and  thoso whose noses, ears, lingers or  toes have onco suffered in this way  soon learn through unpleasant experience that for them special precautions in the way of suitable coverings and avoidance of exposure aro  necessary for protection against tho  painful effects of cold, damp and  wind. It is curious that with such  people tho secondary attacks are often brought on by dampness accompanied by only moderate degree of  cold.  Chilblains aro local dilatations of  tlie blood-vessels of the skin, produced by cold and moisture whon tho  circulation is feeble in tlio region exposed. In ordinary cases the skin  shows a somewhat bluish or dusky  blush, which disappears on pressure  and rotiirns but slowly when .the  pressure is removed. This experiment  shows that the blood .circulates sluggishly. In severe cases there aro  itching, and pain, especially .when  warmth is returning to the parts affected. Sometimes the skin gives  way and leaves a raw surface���������tho  so-called "broken chilblains," and  this may- result in an ulcer which is  slow to heal.- Greater degrees; of  cold or more prolonged'exposure  cause a dead and waxy whiteness of  the skin, which sometimes has a  wrinkle'd: appearance. This condition  is usually spoken of as frost-bite.  The proper treatment of both; chilblains and frost-bite is to restore  the normal circulation as soon as  possible, but not by applying heat  too rapidly. Friction is usually tho  best and least painful-method, for* ia  severe frost-bite there is danger of  producing inflammation or even gangrene if the parts are warmed too  suddenly. The time-honored custom  of gradually thawing out the affected,  part by rubbing with snowis a safe  one to follow, and it is well: to remember that this ought not to be  done in a warm or near a fire,'but in  a cool place.  People who suffer from.chronic chilblains should bear in mind that   the  combination  of  dampness  with    cold  is  much worse for  them  than   .cold" -  alone,  and should always wear, thick -  woolen stockings and gloves "in  winter, and     avoid tight shoes, cii culjic^,,,  garters, ,or -anything elsc-whlch"  ^ifh- "���������  pedes .the circulation  of tha blood.  replied Triboulet, "can't you con;  (.rive to hang him a quarter of an  liour. previously?" * ���������*  Fow men- have been better; able to  extricate .'themselves from a predicament by nimble wit thniu President  Grevy.

I beg to assure you it is the desire  of the company to do all that is possible to give the maximum benefits to  the provinces through which it will  pass, iu propoition to the mileage  b.iilt therein.  Our plans are to first construct a  line conuect Like Superior with Winnipeg, continuing our surveys in the  eastern provinces, and west of Winnipeg to thu Pacific coast. Upon completing into Winnipeg, to construct  from tliere west, thus passing through  tt well populated country, and one  that produces traffic. By doing this,  IK  NOTE   AND  COMMENT.  .This is the second occasion within  three years tbat Kevelstoke has lieen  chosen as the site for the Provincial  Teachers' Convention, a fact which  should prove very gratifying to all  our citizens.  In   another   column   will   be found  particulars of the three days' program.  It will, of course, be superfluous to  suggest that we turn to with a will  and put our surroundings into a neat,  clean and attractive condition, for, by  Bo doing it cannot fail to be of lasting  benefit to all concerned,  ifilT^6uiU"7TI^nf<rnrcdnnection  with the business centre of eastern  Canada, and would have traffic constantly coming along tho new line, and  to the end of same.  I umler.-it.ind your desire is to .secure  for the province of British Coltunb'a  as great an expenditure of money in  British Columbia as is possible, and at  the same time have construction commence at an early date.  We have figured carefully on the  cost of building the new line, bringing  ih our supplies nnd equipment, and  find that the policy laid down for our  guidance, to build from the ea.st to the  west is the most economical.  Should we reverse the conditions, it  will not only be more expensive for  us, in the way of getting in labor,  supplies and material to the front, hut  we will, for a considerable period,  have a large amount- of mona.y invested in property on whicli we vvill be  paying an interest charge, and on  which we will have absolutely no  return, i.e., there will bc no local  business on the line, and it cannot, bo  used as a through line until connected  with the line from theeast.  I understand your government i.s  not in favor of cash subsidies under  any circumstances, and that in the  case of the Grand Trunk Pacific, some  feel that the guarantee we have 10-  ceived   from   the   Dominion  Govern  ment is the limit of assistance that  should be accorded to us. Such being  the case, we will be obliged to carry  on our work in the most economical  manner, and reduce our interest  charge to thc minimum, by having as  little disconnected line ns possible.  In an endeavor to produce the results you desire, for the province, I  would ask if your government will  consider the advisability of bringing  down a bill, nt this session, granting  to the Grand Trim!; Pacific Railway  company:  1. Kight of way. not exceeding  two hundred feet, across crown lands,  for main and branch lines, excepting  whero additional widths arc required  for sidings, stations, sheds, wharves,  warehouses, embankments, cuts,  bridges, culverts, drains and other  works and approaches thereto. Fifteen thousand acres of land for each  mile of main and branch line to be  constructed in the province of British  Columbia.  2. Exemption from taxation for 30  years from completion of said railway,  of equipment, stations and station  grounds, workshops, buildings, yards,  rolling stock, appliances and other  property required and used for the  construction, equipment and working  of the said line of railway, and all  personal property owned or possessed  by the company, also capital stock of  the company.  ���������I. The railway company tn have  the privilege lo take from any public  lands adjacent to or near the line of  said railway or branches, all stone,  timber, or gravel, or other mateiial  necessary or useful for the construction  of the railway, and also, where necessary, to fill in upon any public lands.  5.

Sucl  the   more   desirable,   now  purposes of gallery-play. The mischief done is their's, but the unfoi hm-  atc public is called upon to pay the  piper.  As instancing the exorbitant, nature  of tiie demands made hy the railway  promoters, the case of lhe Grand  Trunk Pacific may be taken as a fair  example. In the straitened financial  condition of the province, conditions  of which they were well aware, il  mighL have been supposed tbat such  demands would have been inciedible.

Yours truly,  (Sgd.) RrcrrARD .McBkidk,  Premier.  At Kdrnonton, Alta., .Mch. 20, '05.  Dear Mr. AlcBride���������f beg lo acknowledge your   letter of   March  17th, in  reply to mine of the Dili insl.., in which  I set forth the conditions under which  construction   of    the   Grand    Trunk  Pacific  in   Biitish Columbia might be  commenced   on  the Pacific coast., and  built Ihrough to tho east.  Note that the proposition is rejected  smoke and dust of parliamentary strife  luw somewhat cleared, in order that  the general public may definitely comprehend the exact present status of  thoir province in regard to railway j  development.  AVilh tlie first _sU������.i:p feeling of disappointment at the failure of the  negotiations looking towards railway  legislation, tliere arose a disposition���������  natural, perhaps, but in no way justi  fied hy the facts of the c.ise���������to blame  tiie Government for the deadlock  between thc high  contracting parties.  It is to be remembered, in considering the terms oll'ered by the various  railway promoters, that tbey regarded  the country as a desert which tlieir  projected line was to open up to settlement and consequent commerce.  The Government on the other hand,  is better informed as to the resources  of the land, knowing it to be an  immensely rich storehouse needing  only a door of communication with  the outer world. But it would bc by  no means tbe part of wisdom for the  Government to give two-thirds of this  wealth to those who opened the door.  The price was too high.  Butiin eomtneiKling Hie government  for   their   foresight   and  prudence in  refusing to  sacrifice  the country, il. is  not fair to  unduly blame the railway  folk for tlieir exorbitant demands. .All  tbey desire is to get as much  the  best  of tlie bargain a.s they possibly can, in  oider to make a good showing, a good  balance sheet, and   good dividends for  their   shareholdeis.      Anl   this   is   a  pr-r(e.cp.y     legitimate,'       business-like  point of  view on   their  part, and no  in in   who  has ever bought and   sold  in the markets of commerce to ever so'  trilling an   extent   has   any  right to  fling   a  stono at   them.     Business is  business.  Prom the very commencement of  the session ��������� aye, and long before  that���������the opposition liad consistently  maintained an attitude of motirico and  intimidation towards the government  with regard to railway legislation.. So  prononuced was this altitude both in  the House and out of il, that the railway lobbyist.1: were encouraged to  believe that tin; government did not  dare to close the session without l.ho  introduction oT some measure, of railway legislation, no ma Iter how unreasonable in character or oxoribitant  in demand. Thus (he opposition contributed in no small share to the deadlock finally ensiiingin Lhe negotiations.  Their attitude was wholly unnecessary.  well that the government had been It  forced to increa-e taxation on the 11!  individual in order to meet the increased burdens of administration,  the Grand Trunk Pacific people had  the immaculate nerve to demand in  addition - that these immense land  grants, if given, should be exempt  from taxation for a period of thirty  years.  Mr. Morse.on behalf of his company,  practically demanded that section 32  of the Land Act should be. repealed in  tlieir favor; that is to say that the  government should have no interests  in any of the townsites of the company in British Columbia. In other  words, the position of the Grand  Trunk Pacific was that they should  get everything they could from the  government, and shut oil tho province  from obtaining any direct benefits in  the shape of revenue in return.  The other railway propositions before the government were in practically the same strain.  It may ��������� he" well'to remark in conclusion that while the opposition,  their friends and newspapers, are  making a great outcry about the  lIlisence���������of~railway^legislation, those  outside of partizan politics are in a  position to prophesy, with a great,  possibility of accuracy, that the coming season will see more railway  construction than has "lieen done in  the past three years put together.

These groups of  iiobbins are surrounded by hairs or  ibrist:es that play 6ome part la the  .-weaving of the web.  * The webs of the spider are of two  kinds���������vertical and horizontal snares.  Tliere are four.subdivisions oi the first  class���������the complete nets, tho sectional  net. the radial net and the partial net.  The network Itself is dlvded into a  central, space,"* spiral space and framework. The central epa'ce has three  distinct parts���������the centro (or nave),  tbe zone of defence and the open zone.  ��������� The nave is as large as the spread  - of the legs of the spider tbat wove tbe  web.   When the insect id on the watch  for    its prey it    ii*  almost    always  s-tietched.cut on this nave, where it  lies airtight. **A~careful examination  |  shows that the tips of the feet  are  twisted in .the net. and the least movement at any point Is immediately felt  *y the spider, whoss twist has tightened the thi ends, so tbat his sensitive  legs will feel the sl:ghtost touch.   Ter-  thaps the spider is also aided  in this  natural te'egrup-hing by tha Ijght fibre  that connects the nave 'with his own  ifcody.    At any rate, the chief object  of .this mode of construction seems to  ���������be that the  spider remains  attached  to his web, whether he be aftor his  ip'rey or leaves his.net for. a moment  to get ready for attacking an enemy,  or when, after a sortie, be -wishes to  return to the web.  I -The nave is woven either shut or  open. The weave covers it with irregular meshes, "across which -we can  generally see the prolongations of the  radial cords, forrai ���������? a zigzag. Tbe  closed nave le cove:'d with a woof of  closely netted wihit= silk; the open  save is generally found in horizontal  ffvebs.  I The zone of- defence- is' made up of  spiral lines, four to t������n in number, Immediately siirround'ng the nave. Tfcesa  spirals do not cross the radials at rijht  jjpngels, but are w.-iven round them  lengthwise at the points of crossing.

It  has been the cry bf  our merchants  that too much money  was being sent out of town to Eaton's  and Simpson's.

No part of it contains any of the vi'pcous bulbs, so that  .tiie sp.'dcr can moye freely all around  bis centre of operations .-without running nny risk of leins caught in his  own net, though at the emie time lie  can catch no prey in this part of the  .���������web.  .   'In -weaving his web the flrst thread  th'at the spider apin^-is ihe frame. To  do this the intcct crawls over the Objects on which he  wishes to sp: end his  ���������Feb;  he drags the fibre behind him,  attaching, it to the    surface   of   the  Ihings by pressure oi the thread ducts.  XVhen these are oprned, provided, a&  they are, witir-htiudreds of little bobbins, the threads e'ick,to the surface  at once and harden.   Then the spider  presses his weaving ilngJis together,  nnd the numerous fibres are twisted su  as to fonm a single "trong thread.  '   The   spider "sometimes makes   t.he  frame in another way, utilizing the air  and its currents.   We often seo webs  epready betwenp  v������*y distant points,  end where it was certainly Impossible  for the Insect to crawl from one to tha  other point. .In some instances theso  points are thirty oi- forty feet apart,  (the   threads   of tho   frame   crcssliifj  o-oa'ds  or    little po.-il3    of water.    It  (would  have  been  impossible  for tho  spider to cross the road or the waicr  without finding:   -insisrmounitnbln    ob-  *tacles If the insec-'. bad crawled.   He  ahas availed  himteif of air    currents  for stretching thc fraime of thp web.  One observer Bays that ho has often  seen  spiders liorr0 to their work  by  /currents or air, and that after laying  ithe frame the spider walks oh  lt to  ���������weave tho other threads and rndlalg.  fThe spider set-nm to attach grout l.m-  .'portanco to the threads of tho frame,  jtreauently using   thcm for tiio   cun- *  (btructlon   of new wsbs;    but If   tlio  (threads of the frame nre destroyed the  position of the new web Is altered.

Itis eyes wore fixed on tlio countess,  but he could see Irene as she stood  where she half-leaned against thc  tree: of Seymour he took no notice  whatever.  "Vour wife?    Are you���������mad?"  "No.   mother.  J  am not. mad.     She  is my  wife.    We were married    lo-dny  this   morning."  The counless shuddered ami put  her hand to her heart.  "Oh, Cod. I om punished!

Irene's   lips  quivered,   and   hcr     head  dropped   lower.    The   countess   looked  at    him" with  mingled   unbelief  horror.    "Vou���������love'd  her;   this  gypsy  girl?

Madge shrank  back   ami  clung     to  Royce,   and     Seymour   started     and  flushed angrily.  "Go, Madge," whispered Royce,  and he led her to his mother.  The countess took her hand and  looked at her penetratingly, and  Mndge, as if she felt the gaze as a  challenge, raised her oyos and met it  steadily, though modestly.  "My son tells me that you saved  his life, thnt he. has married you because he loves yoiu I would have  given my life to have prevented it,  but it is too late now.

Very few people, except those connected with the -fur trade, or who  have had their attention directed to  it, have any notion of the enormous  destruction of nnininl life which  takes place each year among fur  bearing animals, or of tlie very extraordinary way in wliich tlie supply  of these animals appears to keep ,'ip,  says tho Forest and Stream,  Tliere are only u few species whicli  seem to be verging toward extinction; such are tlio sea otter, tho  beaver over large tracts of country,  certain sorts of fur soals nnd a West  African monkey. Northern Asia and  northern Norlli America still produco  vast quantities of fur,* and will long  coiitinuo  to  do so.  Perhaps the most valuable fur in  the world is that of the sea otter,  formerly abundant on the shores of  tho Pacific Ocean in northern Asia  and North America, liut now in  great danger of extermination, unless it sliall soon bo ofllcicntly protected. 'Between 1772 and 1774:  about .10,000 skins of tho sea otter  wore taken in the Aleutian Islands,  and the fur was .so eagerly sought  after that at thn end of tho '.eighteenth, century :l 20,000 skins wero  taken-each year. Tho results of such  destruction, could not be doubtful,  '.rhe number killed soon foil to- 15,-  000 each year, nntl in'"'1807," .��������� when  Alaska was . sold to the United  States, il was 700. In 1901 it was  406, while in 1S0������ Messrs. Lampson  & Co. of London sold 4GU skins, but  thoy hail none in .January, 1'904,  and none in October. It is not unusual for a son otter skin to soil for  SOOO, while remarkably good skins  may bring two, three or five times  that price.

Most of tho shapes require  little trimming, a flower or two or  ,     .a bow.  Almost anything and everything in  the way of a bolt "goes" now, and  ��������� there is apparently no end to thc  '. pretty conceits. A bright green silk  ono, girdle stylo, has a smart littlo  bow placed directly in front and held  by a stunning long, oval buckle,  goltl studded, with green stones.  There is such an extraordinary  showing of lacos to bo found in thc  shops nnd at such extremely reasonable prices that one wonders whether laco will be used on exclusive  frocks, but thc modistes say "oui,"  and we may continue lace hunting.  Grenadine foulard, one of tho new  thin silk fabrics for summer and  evening wear, comes in plain and  Inco stripped grounds, sprinkled with  'lornl patterns. It is 32 inches wido  -   and Si a yard.  This is a silk year, and ribbons of  Rroat beauty are used lavishly on  tho new hats. As a rule they aro  of tho softest and most pliable silks,  and aro put on, not in stiff bows,  but folded and crushed into rosettes.  Several tones of color are used in  . these rosettes, giving a flower-like  effect.  A collar in turndown style is made  of a coarse white linon, with buttonholed edges nnd eyelet embroidery. A  bright red Windsor is run through  two long eyelets and tied in four-in^  hand, with one vory short ribbon  end. o  Among the new trimmings there is  a wido variety of batiste and linen  . crash insertions and -edgings, which  are' applqued : and embroidered elaborately. A largo number of the  ���������most recently opened of thoso trim-  , mings have gold or silver threads introduced into their patterns'. Both  galloons and edgings are often easily-  separable.  . AVhite pemgee, in, pure white,  cream, string, oyster, and other off  shades,   is     extremely  pretty,     both  - for separate waists and for gowns.

Cravenetto  is for many reasons besides tho ono  just mentioned, tho ideul fabric for  rain coats. It is soft ancl pliable,  falls in graceful lines, and is very  durable. It can be had in a variety of colors, and'coats are now.  mnde for sale in the shops ih very  good rodingote models.

Colored handkerchiefs will still bo  smart for spring, and the linen  article will be a shade smarter than  the  silk   and  linon     mixture.  Helio,  ��������� blue, tan, sky, pistache, black and  whito and  nankin  are dainty,    whilo  ���������grounds bearing plaids, jacquard  figures, graduated spots and flcur-  de-lis nre pleasing.  Fancy waistcoats will be as proper  ns ever, but the trend is away from  brown, which has been dime to  death, and toward more springlike  shades, such as corn and'biscuit.  They, are cut a bit. higher to accord  with the" mode of tho new season.  While thc general leaning of fashion  is to brightness and color, thero are  no signs that spring is to upset in  any  sense  tho  accepted  standards.  ST.  VITUS DANCE.  Nervous Trouble That 'Kelds Readily to Dr. William's Pink Pills.    ���������  St. Vitus Dance is- a common disease among children, but it often attacks both men and women of nervous temperament. Its symptoms  aro shaky hands, jerky arms, trembling legs, twitching muscles; sometimes the powor of speech is affected.  Th^ only euro lies in plenty of blood,  because good blood is tho life-blood  of the nerves. I'r. Williams1 Pink  Pills novor fail to curo St. Vitus  Dance, because thoy make the rich,  red blood that feeds the nerves aud  keeps thorn strong anil steady. Hrs.  Wm. Levcllie, Welland. Out., was  seriously uiinicted with St. Vitus  Dance, and no treatment helped her  until sho began the use o:' Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. Mrs. Levcllie  says:���������"At times tiie trouble was so  severe thnt I could not tako a drink  of water unaided, und could not  trust myself to raise a dish-. Thero  was a constant involuntary motion  of the limbs, ami nt times I could  neither eat, walk nor talk. I grow  pnlo and emaciated, and my lifo wns  fairly a burden. Doctors' trcaiii.ent,  which 1 was taking almost continuously, did not do me a particle of  good and I had almost come to the  conclusion that there was no curo  for me.

A man who*walked into the Bank  of England the other day, and laid a  ������10 note on tho counter, was surprised to -hoar tho clerk say, "Wo  can't cash this. The note was stopped -twenty-three years ago."  Over twenty years back the note  was-stopped by a  clerk then in   the  VLADIMIR AND THE CZAR  POWER  OF   THE  RUSSIAN  GRAND DUKE.  His Policy Mainly That of   Hanging Suspects���������The   Czar  Fears Him.  Tho Grand Duko Vladimir, leader  in the St. Petersburg massacre, was  born, it seems, in 1847���������just before  the great annus mirnbilis" of the  European democratic movement,  whon many a continental throne tottered, says tho London Leader. His  57 years do mit seem to have been  crowded wiih glorious incident. As  a Grand Duko ho had, of course, the  usunl claim .upon the "Imperial appanages"���������tho 21,000,000 acres of  landed estate, whoso revenue of $10,-  000,000 in reserved for Romanoffs  not in the direct line of succession.  Before the emancipation of the serfs  tho Imperial appannges carried with  them the ownership of 800,000 peasants. 'The Grand Duke and his wifo  (nee Friuceso Marie of Mecklenburg)  play a great part in society. They  are even said to bo "very popular"  in those circles, and their children���������  including the Grand f-luke Cyril, who i  was one of tho survivors of the  wreck of the Petropavsk���������arc stated  to share this popularity. Then the  Grand Duke Vladimir enjoys thc intimate friendship of tho Queen l?e-  gont of Spain, and spends a portion  of eneh summer with the Spnnish  court at St. Sebastien. Dr. Sockice,  one of the editors of "Free Kussia,"  tells a story of him to the following  effect. It appears that Vladimir dined ono night wilh a well-known engineer, who had been engaged' for a  year on  somo Government works.  "How much did you net on that  transaction?" quoted the Grand  Duke.  "Fifty thousand dollars," was the  reply.  "What, work a wliolo year for that  trifle?"  Vladimir was astonished. The incident well exhibits the pnlnco clique  as the spoilt children of fortune  GOSFKL, OF HANGING.  But if tliis Grand Duko has not  donCmuch, hc has thought much after hi.s manner. He lies a policy,  but has not boen able to carry it  out. The policy can bc summed up  with manosylabic brevity���������the noose.  This is the bo all and end all of his  political philosophy, the ono, only,  and final answer to all the torturing  and questioning of worrying statesmen. "He would hang everybody,"  says Dr. Soskicc, who differs from  the opinion of his rulers. Many a  timo during the struggle with the re-  vol ition he has insisted on the necessity of hanging, wholesale, all  prisoners���������even thoue arrested on suspicion.  His- belief in tho virtues of the  rope is grim in its completeness -and  finality. "String up"a" hundred malcontents in tho presence of their comrades, nnd tho ngitntion' for a constitution will cea&e," is his advice  on  the present* troubles.

When the Grimsby (England) steam  trawler, Syrian, put into .Filey Bay  the other day for shelter from a  gale, she played "Auld Lang Sync"  by means of, an organ-pipe arrangement on her syren. The tune, mosi  admirably played, made scores of  people run- to the foreshore nnrl cliffs  to.seo whence the music camo. After  a short pauso the syren broke forth  into, "A Life on ithe Ocean Wave."  Meanwhile the vessel pitched about  in the rough waves, thundering seas  dashing ovor the reef. "Tho Bay of  Biscay" was. next rendered and then  "Tho Death of Nelson." Later in  the afternoon the steamer obliged  with "The Blue Bolls of Scotland,"  and "Rulo Britannn,"- and before she  put to sea again, tlie wind having  moderated, tho novel concert was  closed with the National Anthem. As  tho vessel waa steaming out to sea  the strains of "God bo with you till  wo moot again" were carried to  shore by tho wind.  Mr. Tile���������"Your wife used to lecture beforo sho Was married; has she  given it up now?" Mr. MU'd.i���������"Well  ���������or���������yes; that is,  in public."-  There have been strange rumors  concerning the Grand Duko Vladimir.  Perhaps they are only 'the babble of  a gossiping court or of ignorant outsiders. But they, deserve j.o. be chronicled, because their mere existence  demonstrates the general distrust.  First, we must recollect that, until  the recent birth of tho Czar's son,  only the Czar's brother, a frail and  delicate creature, stood betweon him  and the throno. Terhaps it is this  fact which has sot tongues wagging.  It is said that tho late Czar, Alexander III., feared him so much that  in his uknso decreeing the order of  succession he inserted a clause barring from the throne any. princo of  the royal houso whoso wife, if a foreigner, had refused at her marriage  to become a convert to tho Russian  National   Church.  This would have excluded Vladimir  on account of his Lutheran.wife. The  Czar is even said to have summoned  to his death bed the General commanding the Seventh and Eighth  Army. Corps, and made military arrangements with him .to prevent the  seizure of his throne by Vladimir after his death.  CREDITED WITH PLOT.  - More than that, the present Czar  and Czarina are supposed to be. in-  "fectcd with the same dread of the  terrible Grand Duko. The story runs  that when the C/nr was stricken  down with typhoid four years ago  the Empress sent peremptory orders  to Vladimir to remain at Paris,  where ho happened to be at the  moment, until further notice. The  fear wa.s that the Grand Duke, as  Governor-General of tho military 'district of St. Petoisbtirg, and Commander-in-Chief of the Guards, would  hapten homo and proclaim himsolf  Resent.

Editor:  Dear Sir,���������Please allow me space  through the columns of your val liable  paper for a little comment ie the  Opera liouse, which I trust you will  not deem out of place.  Many of our pioneers will remember  thu cry that went up eight years ago  from the citizens for a larger h-ill for  public entertainments. A large 'number of citizens strongly advised me lo  build such a hall promising mo the  patronage if I did so. Having great  faith in the future of ltevelstoke J  built, a play liouse that I considered  suitable for the requirements of tho  people. This J did in irood faith, and  J think, Mr. Editor, you will agree  with ine when I say that I was under  the impression T was setting a, good  example in our promising young city.  Now, I can repent at my leisure for so  doing, and ask where are those who  profess to be manly and honorable or  encourage enterprising men. They  stay with rne in the same way as rats  stay wilh a sinking ship. By their  actions ono would bo led to believe  that Revelstoke is on the decline, as  during the past year they havo made  any kind of a little place do for all  kinds of public gatherings.  Now, Mr. Editor, I wish to say that  I protest against the JDrill Hall being  used for so many public entertainments under a militia cloak. They do  not contribute in any way to our cily  trcasu ry,���������wh i lo���������t be���������Opera���������Douse,-a  private enterprise is being taxed to  death by the cil.y. We oniy had one  ball last winter. Our terms areas  reasonable as any hall in B. C. and  who can say we have not dealt in an  honorable way with them. J lad 1 no  olher means wheieby to support my  family, than the Opera liou.se, Ilie  creditors would have had it ere this,  after all the money I have invested in  it. Jn conclusion I. would say that if  our citizens wish to see the Opera  House fitted up to date Ihey must give  it a fair patronage; if not, I will con-  hesfc to lock it up.
