Shortly after 7 o'clock on Saturday  night another fatal railway accident  occurred on the main line of the C. P.  R., a few miles west of Griffin lake,  when the first section of.-No..L in  charge of Conductor Anderson and  Engineer Moscrop, collided with a  freight train in charge of Conductor  McCrum and Engineer "Wm. McNab.  The accident resulted inthe death of  the two firemen, Joseph P. Eastwood  and Lancy K. Scott. Eastwood was  killed instactly while Scott'lived until  about 6 o'clock the following moraine.  Both the engineers, however, escaped  with.only very slight injuries, Engineer McNab being cut about the head.  Brakeman Smith of the freight train  was also slightly injured. On the  first section of No. 1 were two cars of  passengers who received a severe  shaking up.  As soon as the news of the wreck  was received in the city the C. P. R.  officials ordered out a special train  and with the doctors- immediately  repaiied to the scene of the disaster,  where everything was done to alleviate the suffering, and bring them to  the city for treatment. Upon examination it'was found that none of them  were badly hurt.  Correct' orders had. been issued by  the despatcher, and all had understood  them correctly .excepting Engineer  McNab and his firemau,_of the freight  train.' " McNab, in reading the order  had /placed his thumb over the first  word "2nd" of the order and had read  it as meaning' number one was in one  section and(. late, .whereas ?-"the order  .was meant to advise that number one  wtis in two sections -with the secpnd  section late." On the "order the freight  should have.rStopped'a.t D6wnie siding  to allow the'iirst'sectidn'of the p'assela.^  ger to -pass, but_.oa, the engineer's  misinterpretation of the order he went  on.

Two tramps were stealing a lide on  the freight and sustained injuries.

B. Lewis, W. J. Dickey, W.  Armstrong and W. J. Law.. The. inquest opened at 10:30 and the hearing  of evidence was in progress till i p.m.,  and at 6 o'clock a verdict was given in  substance as follows: "Deceaseds  Lancy K. Scott and James P. Eastwood met their deaths as the,result of  -a collision between the 1st section of  No. 1 and an east hound freight train  about SOO yards east .cl Downie station,  the collision being caused' by a mistake on the part of Engineer McNab,  who misinterpreted his train orders."

While - Undier.^Influence"  1- Whiskey Indians Quarrel  Verna-n���������Offender Captured by  His Own People.t-      -, -  ' Vernon, jB. C.���������Full particulars of  the alleged murder of tha Indian Hop-  kin at "Vernon'by another native, Wild  'Aleck, have been received. .The Vernon  News says'that the murder resulted  from a drunken row ever: a - go me of  cards on April 13.  "On the night in question, Wild  Aleck and his wife. Long Pierre and  his wife and Hopkin, an elderly Indian  at least 65 years of age, were encamped  on the arm of.the lake." says the News.  "They had been drinking whiskey and  were all more or less' under the influence of the intoxicant. Aleck and  Hopkin were playing cards and gambling, when Aleck evidently - resenting  the continued success of' his opponent,  pulled his'revolver and,,after, missing  fire at the first-attempt, shot' at. Hopkin, striking him in the temple. Long  Pierre-is: said ��������� to have made some  attempt to tako _away. Jthe_revolverL  but was promptly covered by Aleck  and threatened with- death: if'he interfered.  -"After the deed, the four Indians  Immediately left the place, leaving the  body as it was, and proceeded to White  Man's-creek, about four miles off,  where'they stayed for the night.  "Annie, Wild Aleck's klootchman,  confessed that thu next niglit she and  her husband returned to the scene of  ���������the murder, dragged tbe body through  a fence to the lake, and, fastening a  heavy stone to it. towed it out some  distance from the shore and allowed it  to sink.  ��������� "As. soon as he could safely escape  from the company of - his dangerous  associate Long Pierre reported the  -matter to the chief. The latter: im-,  mediately reported to chief constable  Simmons, who made all necessary I  arrangements to effect the capture of  the murderer. Specials were -sent to  watch various points on both sides of  the lake, and constable Rose, of. Kel-  owna and Gardoni, of Enderby, were  sent for to assist in the measures  Q3cessary for tho arrest. These preparations served their turn in preventing the escape of Wild Aleck, although  the- determination of the ���������.- Indians  themselves to bring the offender  speedily to justice resulted in his capture by-his own people. The chief had  enrolled some 30 or 40 men for speoial  polico duty and had distributed these'  .'men In various likely parts of the lake  -vicinity, A section of about 20 of these  located Wild Aleok in the house of an  Indian on the west side of the lake,  -whitherhe had gone to procure -his  rifle. The house was surrounded and  Aleck, who was quite unarmed, was  soon convinced of the hopelessness of  his situation and induced to give himself up. He was brought to-Vernon  and lodged ip tbe lockup," I  The Outlook Never was Better  inthe Rossland Camp���������Negotiations by Le Roi Two for  Purchase of Giant.  The mining outlook is most certainly  brightening to a remarkable  degree  arid everything points to greater profits and output than ever before in the  history of the camp, says the Rossland  Miner,     Every  mine   that  is  being  operated here is making a profit.   The  Centre  Star during  the  first  three  months of the year has made something over $60,000. ��������� The War Eagle  has made a profit  of  $35,000  iii  the  same period.   The Le Boi is making a  substantial profit each month.    The  Le Rioi Two is doing well.   The Jumbo  is piling up an addition to ils surplus  eachjmonth.     The  Spitzee and  the  White Bear are making a profit on the  ore which they! take out, but are putting it back into new work.     Profits  are what mining is carried on for and  when all of the . Rossland   mines  are  doing so well it means that there will  be considerable expansion in the way  of increased development, augmented  ore output and  enlarged   number  of  men given employment.   Just as soon  as capital is convinced of the fact that  a good profit can he made by investing  in the mines in this division there will  be no lack of  it  for   the   purpose  of  opening up new mines and that  our  mines will pay under proper management is now being demonstrated.  The news comes from London that  the'Le Roi Two is about to purchase  the Giant mine., This is a. good move  on the part of the Le Roi Two company, as the Giant is a valuable mine,  having one bf the largest ore shoots in  the camp. It is in such good shape,  having been opened up to a, considerable extent, that .it will not take ' a  great-.deal .-of, money .to put in on a  profitmakingbasis. _  Forty Killed at Warsaw.  WARSAW, May 3.���������The city is apparently outwardly quiet this morning  but the situation is none the less  grave. Workmen are going from factory to factory compelling their comrades to strike and the probability of  further conflicts arouses the keenest  apprehension.  The bodies of the thirty odd persons  killed by the troops on Zelosena street  yesterday are still lying in the morgues  awaiting identification. Some of the  wounded who were taken to hospitals  died of their wounds. During the encounter on Jerusalem' street the troops  not only fired a volley, 'but used the  butts of their rifles and their bayonets  arid swords. Many women and children had their heads and limbs badly  broken.  At Kalisz (Russian Poland) during a  service in a church the congregation  began singing patriotic songs, whereupon soldiers and police entered the  building and attacked the people,  wounding many of them. A fight  ensued, during which weapons were  [wrested from the police, shots were  exchanged and stones were thrown.  A dragoon, a woman and a man were  killed inside the church. A squadron  of cavalry was summoned and dispersed the crowds. ;.. The church was  closed for reconsecrution.  CLUBBED IN  THE STREETS  SPORT.  G.

Wild Man is Shot  Victoria, May 2.���������Vancouver  Island's wild  man, whose capture has  been repeatedly attempted, is believed  to have met his doom from the shotgun of an Indian.   A tribesman was  passing down the coast in a canoe, and  seeing  a  figure  prowling along the  beach, fired at it, believing it to be a  bear.   The figure leaped into the air,  shouting loudly, and the Indian then  saw that- it was the figure of a naked  man.    The wild man rushed into the  woods, whence  his shouts  could lie  heard for some time.   This man was  lost; reported  along  Qualicum River  and when  shot was in the neighborhood of  Union Bay.     The facts are  given   by  Pilot  Owens, who has ju.t  returned from  Union, and  who waa  told  the  story   by  John  Fraser, of  Fraser & Howe, merchants of  Union.  Owens thinks the wild man is possibly  a young fellow who went up the coast  with him ten or twelve years ago when  he  was master of  the steamer Jean.  The young man landed neaifQualicum  and'was living with  a man named  Buss for the holidays.     One day he  wandered  into the woods and never  returned,   Owens thinks that possibly  he lost bis wny and ultimately his  reason, and degenerated into a half-  savage  creature, and  was  the  man  who was recently shot.

JKJS*'' STORY OF MRP. FIELD  8,400      MILES      WITH  A  MISSIONARY.  Feanful    Trip Across      the   Snowy  Wilds of Arthabaska With the  Eev. Mr. Buclcman.  The fearful story of Corporal Field,  of lho Canadian Mounted Police, who  went into the wilds of the polar  Northwest with a clog team, rescued  a maniac missionary and by force  carried him bnck over 2,4.00 iniles of  snow to civilization, rivals all fiction. In his duties a.s a Presbyterian  evangelist in the vast territory bordering HriU.sh Columbia tho Uev. Mr.  Buckman. of the Canadian Mission,  travelled far into the norlli country,  where the only inhabitants are savage Indians and Canadian halfbrceds  in thc employ of tlie Hudson Hay  Fur Company, whoso stations dot  the frozen solitudes from Hudson  Hay to thc Arctic circle and beyond.  Leaving tho last railroad station,  Edmonton, the terminus of the Canadian Pacific's most northerly line,  tor the Arctic regions. Mi: Buckmnn  reached Fort Chippcwyan, a supply  post of tho Hudson Ilay Company.  Ilesides a handful of employes necessary to forward furs brought down  from the north on Erskime dog  sledges there wero on duty there  ��������� three members of tho Mountain  Police.  It was during tho long twilight  days of last summer that Mr. llmjk-  mah, exhilarated by the wonderful  mountain air of tho region, ascended  tho cayon trail of Peace Itiver and  journeyed westward toward the gold  country. He finally went into quarters at Peace Station, another,.of the  Hudson Bay Fur Company's depots.  It consists of a lor.g, low log cabin  in charge of a halfbreed Canadian,  the sole inhabitant of the place. During the busy season, when furs and  supplies were coining through to bo  reshipped from point to point, tho  monotony was occasionally broken,  and the missionary tarried there  until  WINTER  SUDDENLY  CAME,  in tho charming month of October.  The season of darkness came rapidly,  bringing storms and wild bli/.zurds  or snow, hail and ice. The desolation wns profound, and tlirough tho  long nights the missionary had only  Anton Ribeaux, the halfbreed, for a  companion.  They were housed in a dark, smoky  stifling hut, buried in snow. Their  food was bacon and cornmeal, with  an occasional jack rabbit, and on  this the clergyman lived in darkness  and frost, with not a soul who could  speak intelligible English to comfort  him or speed the'wintry hours. In  :. lhe intervale between blizzards,  wolves howled round the door, and  there seemed no possible escape for  the missionary until winter broke,  some eight or nine months hence.  Fortunately a squad of mounted  police,.-making-a forced march eastward, camo that way and found thc  "missionary growing insane. The  halfbreed. who thrived well amid the  ��������� darkness and storms of the Arctic  climate, was well armed, but he  could not stand, the terrors of living  with a wild missionary who was  daily growing more insane. The police .said they would see, what they  could do. and when the storm lessened a little they sallied forth, reached  Fort Chippewyan in n-tuw days and  reported the caso to the police iu  charge of the station.  It was considered a. forlorn expedition, the attempt, to carry a crazy  man on a sled through storm and  snow, hundreds of miles soutii to  civilization. But something had to  be done, and Corporal Field was selected as the one mnn available in all  ihat country able to endure tho fatigues of such a trip. He was detailed to proceed to Peace Station,  take possession df the man, and  carrj- him through the wilderness  down the Athabaska River to the  Edmonton Railroad station, on the  unfinished Klondike line.  Although the weather was beyond  description, real Arctic winter had  hardly begun. The 'darkest and most  dangerous part of the season was  yet "to come when Corporal Fic-ld  "set out with a picked team of  THE BEST TRAINED DOGS  t.haU---onej^coul(Lbuy_,____he-S.lronge&t.  and lightest running.sled in the service of the fur company was loaded  with provisions, cooking utensils,  furs and clothing for the journey. A  small lent and a few blankets were  added���������all a ffood load for the sled.  It was considered extremely hazardous to undertake the trip, ond  jnanv   doubted  if  the. feat  could    be  The snow was deep and crusted.  When clear the sky was ao blue aud  transparent as the Mediterranean.  MAD Toward evening on such days auroras painted the sky in a thousand  colors, and the whole world seemed  fringed with fairyland and spectral  fires. At four o'clock daily the corporal, halted and went into camp  near sheltering trees and a convenient stream. Tho small tent was  used as a sort of shelter, and the  sled was turned on sido to keep off  wind and storm. Cold meat, beans  and ten usually made tho meal.  REFUSED TO  EAT.  Sometimes between storms the cor-  pornl managed to shoot rabbits and  grouse or catch fish through tho ico,  but it wn.s all forlorn nnd horrible,  with the crazy mnn watching with  panther eyes every movement, ovor  seeking to escupo. At first thc missionary refused to eat nnd would  not utter n syllable, so they journeyed on in heartbreaking silence.  The demented man glared at the dog  team or at the sky for hours, and  seemed liko sonic horrible creaturo in  a trance,  with (ear in his eyes.  On tho afternoon of the fourth day  the weather turned clear and the! sun  on the snow wns almost blinding. It  seemed to nITcct the missionary. Ho  became uncontrollable and finally so  violent thnt he burst his bonds. A  clump of trees appeared ih tho bend  of the river and tho maniac ran  screaming into  the woods.  Fortunately the corporal was a  famous athlete nnd managed to recapture tho man before ho could  reach a .tall tree he wns heading for.  A desperate struggle followed,, but  tho missionary wns filially secured,  carried back to tho sledge and strapped to it with the buckles fastened  behind Hia back, so that he could not  reach them. 'Again they proceeded,  but the man refused to ent, and the  corporal had to force food down his  throat with a spoon to keep him  from starving.  When tho weather changed travelling was impossible for two or three  dnys nt a tiine. The snow not only  filled the nir with blinding mist,  but the win'd blew so fearfully that  the corpnl had to lash himself and  the missionary to a tree,which', being rooted twenty feet deep in the  frozen banks of thc rivor, could withstand any gale. 'I'llus they waited  dny nnd night through the storm until it moderated enough for them  to  resume  their journey.  It should bo explained that during  this fearful trip tho corporal had  travelled chiefly on foot, running  with the dogs, cheering them with  his voice nnd helping them in difficult  places to pull the sledge through  drifts and gulches. Tho cold wns intense, from twenty to fifty degrees  below zero by day nnd still lower in  the long hours of the Arctic dawn.  It wns fourteen dnys after leaving  the, hut of the halfbreed, at ..���������'���������Peace  River slnlion, before they reached  the Athabnska River, forty niiles  south of Fort Chippewynn, whence  the, corporal had started weeks before on his trip to rescue the. missionary. Still tho journey had hardly begun. I'hey were now- to travel  down the Athabaska for more, than  a month to reach their destination.  The river is a long, .winding, stream  for thousands of miles, carrying a  Hood from mountain torrents in the  spring months. It is fringed with  timber; in places it is broad and  clear. When possible the corporal  took to the ice where it was smooth,  ,and '      ���������   "       - .  SO MADE PROGRESS*  Hut new dangers confronted him.  Wolves began to cry early in the afternoon, and by evening became numerous and threatening. For weeks  he had been followed by these ferocious animals, but they were of a  smaller breed, very wild, and they  kept at a distance;.but on the larger  river, with niprc timber, bigger and  bolder wolves appeared, and only  fires kept burning aU night around  tho camp, prevented the wolves from  rushing on them and making an end  to   tho .expedition.  Strange as it may seem, however,  the thicker the wolves the more plentiful game became, and soon the corporal was bagging grouse, jack rabbits, caribou and smaller deer in  abundance. This added to the variety of their food, but the missionary-  ate sparingly, and if he had had  his own way would have died of  =s ta r-vati o n,=  appetite. While I was gathering fuel  for n Jiro he became violent, picked  up a stick and attacked the dog.  Then, spying mo wi,th my arms full  of kindling wood, he made a dash  for the open prnirio. With all his  fasting and confinement ho had n������in-  c'd speed und soon outdistanced me.  I kept on running, however, nnd  soon found thnt hc wns too weak to  go fnr. Presently I overtook him  und fastened his arms and legs do  that h'o coi'ild do no injury to himself or mo.

On tho corporal's recovery from almost fatal exhaustion tlieir journey  was resinned for another by rail of  more thnn n thousand miles to Brandon, where th'o missionary was turned ovcr to an institution, nnd his  uUiumVe recovery  i.s  hoped  for.  MIDNIGHT VISITOR.  Philip Sousa    Has An Unpleasant  Experience.  Sousa, thc March King, had a  creepy experience the other night. Ho  has been in England for some time,  nnd in the courso of his tour (snys  M. A. P.) hnd put up that night at  a provincial hotel; Weary from the  business of giving a couple of concerts, largely composed of encores,  Sousa retired to bed at a pretty  early hour for a- man with night  work to do, being so determined to  get a good sleep that ho oven left  untouched tho sandwiches which, in  obedience to hits customary request,  had been placed on a table in hi.s  bedroom. In tho dead of night he  was awakened by what seemed to be  the sound of a plate being pushed  about among the glass and cu{,tlery  on his small supper table. He sat  up and looked around, but seeing  nothing in tho dim light of the lowered gas, and concluding that he hail  been dreaming, hastily .sought. tho  warm valley of his pillow again���������for  it was bitter cold���������and slept, soundly  until  morning.  "Lor", sir, what a mess the room's  in!" cried lho man .who brought  Sousa's hot water in at nine o'clock.  The March King turned ��������� over and  looked at the room. It was, soiled  nearly everywhere with black footmarks. They were on the floor, the  toilet stand, and the chairs���������most  particularly the chair upon which  Sousa had.'put his shirt and other  underwear. "And it's aU ovcr the  plate!" said the man with the hot  water. And it was. Moreover, the  sandwiches had entirely disappeared,  and so had the fruit, which had been  placed at the side of them.  Putting on his .''dressing gown and curred in  slippers,'" Sousa 'hehicd the man in  his search about the room for what  they expected would turn out to be  a -hidden tramp or something hygienic liko that, nnd.it'was not very  long ;l_ e.oi:o" "the sharp", black "eyes  of the bronzed musician discovered  that the footmarks seemed to have  come from and disappeared to the  great old-fashioned "chimney corner." He's up tho chimney, and he  won't be when ; we have burnt a little  paper this end of it." grimly observed Sousa, and the smoke from  the flaring torch of the morning  News soon had the .desired effect.  A. largo baboon covered from head  to foot in soot, and trembling from  and to the same extremes; descended  into the room and stood quite quietly by the window, while sousa ,,and  the hot-wator man retreated into an  adjoining apartment,. locking the  door behind them..  The baboon, it turned out, had escaped from a travelling circus the  night bofore, and was last seen making lm way in the direction of a  disused bit of ground at the sido of  the hotel. It was quite an informal  call. Sousa says be is going to let  a long time go by before ho reads  again the "shocker" of hi.s countryman, Edgar Allan Pop, "The Murders  in   the   Rue  Morgue!"  FATAL SLEEP SICKNESS  CAUSES  GREAT LOSS  OF LIFE  IN AFRICA.  Investigations      By     Col.    David  Bruce, of the Army Medical  Corps.  Tho sleeping sickness of the tropics  is for tho first fow days a languor  so slight a.s to pass almost unnoticed for weeks niul even months���������a lethargy which deepens into continuous  sleep and finally profound unconsciousness, terminating only in  death. No epidemic disease of modern times has destroyed more human  beings than this lins during tho Inst  four years in thu Congo, Uganda  and the Soudan. A visitation reduced the population of the island of  Buvumn from twenty-two thousand  to eight thousand, in tho southern  part of the province of Biisoga the  native tribes have been almost exterminated, and only deserted villages remain where a few years ago  were the most populous communities  of Uganda. No one enn number tho  thousunds who fell victims in tho  interior districts, but tho tales of  panic-stricken refuses give some  idea of the awful loss of lifo there.  Wide regions have become completely depopulated. Fortunately  the disease has been confined to the  basins of the Congo, Senegal and  Niger. Within these limits it has  had a singularly uneven distribution, infected localities, being often  surrounded by areas in which the  disease has never appeared. At the  mouth of the Congo, for example,  no cases have occurred,- -while a few  hundred miles tip the river it lias  been  continually  prevalent.  NO  HUMAN BEING.'  has yet had the sleeping sickness and  recovered. In this it is unique, for  no other infectious disease is -invariably fatal," the death rate, in bubonic plague, the most dreaded disease  of the Orient, varying from sixty to  ninety-five per cent, and iii the. case  bf Europeans sometimes falling below twenty per cent. The mortality in Asiatic cholera is rarely more  than seventy per cent, under the  most unfavorable' conditions, and in  many epidemics less than twenty-  live per .cent, of all who aro attacked  succumb. There is something particularly appalling about tho insidious onset and the relentless1 course  of the sleeping sickness that has filled the 'natives., with the utmost terror, and when it appears among  them thoy desert their homes. But  even flight, the refuge in"'most epidemics, is unavailing "against, this,  for a whole community may become  infected before tho existence of the.  malady is known, so long is the interval between the c'6]Tfract.ibii of  the disease nnd the appearance of  symptoms.'. It is said that in the  days   of   the  slave   trade   cases     oc-  ly fitted to carry out the investigation of the sleeping sickness nnd his  subsequent work was a model of  accuracy and completeness. With Dr.  Ca'slellani he examined tho blood of  thirty-four cases of the sleeping  sickness antl found tvypanosomes in  twenty-three of them. Later examinations havo provod them to be  present in nil cases of tho disense.  A tsetse fly (glossina pnlpnlis wus  found in grent abundance along tho  shores of streams and lakes in localities where tho sleeping sickness  prevailed, nnd from its analogy to  the diseases caused by trypuiiosoines  in cattle' it wns suspected that the  parasites causing tho deeping sickness were transmitted to mnn by  the bites of tsetse flies.  To demonstrate this, Hies wero  caught, fed on persons ill with tho  sleeping sickness and then allowed  to bite monkeys. Tho monkeys developed tho snmo disease nml died.  When bitten by uninfected Hies thoy  did not become ill. When tho flies  which hnd been fed upon infected  persons we're examined they, too,  were found to hnve trypnnosomes in  tlieir bodies.  i *  ?

Neither books nor anything lhat might  distract the mind was allowed,, and  one prisoner having been found designing geometrical figures with his  bread had it removed by tho jailer,  with the remark that hard .labor  convicts "wero not permitted to  amuse themselves."  Another calculated torture in these  Cells i.s the eyehole, nt which a  ���������warder or soldier in posted to watch j  tho prisoner. By this means tho  quietest prisoner is soon moved to j  frenzy,- and the slightest insubordination is at onco punished by merciless flogging, if not worse. Thus it  comes about that of the three men  whose sentences had been commuted,  one, after a year of thene horrors,  became a consumptive: another, a  robust nnd vigorous workingmun,  went mad; the third, nlso a man of  powerful physique, wn.s rotted with  scurvy.

Experts speculated on tho  causes which had led Mr. Smith to  migrate so hurriedly from other  spheres. That hc had "shot tho  moon" nobody doubted.

It was "Tiuolt" Trencher���������six feet  by fourteen stone���������who unmasked tho  white-faced man with the big black  eyes, and tho thin black whiskers.  -To.do Buck justice, he had suspected  the stranger from the first.  But when he met the newcomer  neatly, .'dressed ih his navy serge pilot  suit.i and his irreproachable boots,  hurrying back to No. 74 ono evening, with a book under his arm,  Buck had no idea that the interview  would quite turn out as. it did.

The.' cry has gone out'in'Uussia,  "Thero is uo Cv.ar." Once boforo  that cry lias boen raised in the same  land. Then, us now, thero waa a  man upon the Imperial throne, but  he was no emperor to his people.  Demetrius, Uie youngest son of Ivan  the Terrible, was murdered by the  regent, Boris Oodunoff, who, securing the throne, established that condition of serfdom which for thc next  threo centuries wus to be thc curse of  Uussia, and to leave traces which  even to-day are tho basis of national  discontent. Hut a huu'vcIIcjiik' thing  happened:     -  Years after the murder of the  youthful Demetrius, a pr."'i������>;idor appeared in his name. In reulity he  was a young monk who had been'sojourning with the Sfaporogian' Cossacks. But on all hands he was lui.il-  ed as the man he pretended to be.  The mother of the real Demetrius received him as her own son.  Hero was a Tichborne prototype on  a gigantic scale. The pretender raised art ai'iiiy nnd marched into Kussia. The . usurping GodunofT conveniently died, and... the false Demetrius  -jWas placod dn tliat throno which today  Nicholas  II*.   occupies.  For a year he reigned. But thc  people who had taken him to their  hearts found that he was hut tho  catspaw of Poland, and in a revolt  headed by Prince Vassili Shouisky  he was murdered, and tho newcomor  installod in his place by ono section,  only to bo. repudiated lw the general  body of the nation.' And so the  story wont on.  But now for an interesting parallel.  The man from whom thc false Demetrius derived chief support wus Sigismund III., King of Sweden, whom  the Poles elected thoir king, Und  whose son wa.s for a time to bo C/-u.r  of Uussia. Iu tho history of this  man tlio present Cznr might almost  sco his own doom foretold, Upon  his acceptance of the Crown of Poland    he   made a     treaty      with tho  States of Swe^letv7)tvjvhieh\h(?^^.oii-  gngod'tol-abs every "fifth year in that  .kingdom, h'or fifteen yeura hc failed  to keep his promise.  Then, thc Jesuits, having gained  complete ascendancy ' over him���������he  appointed a Senate to reside at  Stockholm, composed of forty  Jesuits who were, in all things to represent him. Thc day was fixed for  their arrival in state, and they ware  to ho received in every respect as  though tlioy wore the king for whom  they acte<i.  Just as Father C.'apon .has taken  upon himself to absolve the .soldiers  tn St. Petersburg of their allegiance  to the Czar, so the Swedish nobles  endod their allegiance to this abdicating king. "Since Sigismund has  disdained to lie oui- king," they said,  "we must also not acknowledge him  as such."  But the representatives of the king  wero on their way to Stockholm, and  were, the monarch's orders said, to  bc received us if they were the king.  Great preparations wero made; fireworks placod ready, a gorgeous feast  laid. Then at night the nobles sailed out into the harbor to receive the  galloon in which the representatives  of the king hnd come.  Firowo.i'ks  blazed  in   the  city;  can-;  rion  roaro'd   out  across     the  waters, j  But-there  was  death  in  the message  of      tho     guns.      The  cannon  of  the  nobles  wore    trained  on   tho galleon,  nnd down  it went  with all  its  usur-1  pers  of royal prerogative.  Thc nobles  returned  and ate the  feast  that had  been       prepared,        and      acclaimed  Charles,   uncle  of  Sigismund,   king..   -4   AN INCREASE OF 24 P.C.

OF  THE  PEOPLE.  These    Assemblies   In     tbe    Post  Have Sttled Questions of  Great  Importance.  The semi-official announcement that'  the Czar will revive tho Zcmsky  Zabor, or Sobor, of the seventeenth  century s- ems to have had goo'd ln-  fluer.co upon all classes in Kussia,  says The Chicago Inter Ocean.  Count Leo Deonovitch Tolstoi recommended . the convocation of such  au assembly in a letter to the Czar.  IVo latter sent for Co'Jnt Tolstoi and  ni.tlo'J.'ed him to say that ho was  not opposed to calling a Zemsky  Znbor at this time, and that ho bo-'  lioved that the revival of the old  assembly of 1698 wns necessary.  This is tho more significant bocauso  thc Liberal party of Uussia has held  that there need bo no revolution- to  secure a national assembly, but th*  Czar could meet tho demand of tho  zemstvos by roviving tho Zemnky."  Zabor, or Sobor, of the last of tha  Iturics  and  THE EARLIER  ROMANOFFS.  On this point Professor ifaximo Ko-  valesky says:���������  "Tho Sobors were never abolished  by law. They simply ceosoci to exist,  just as .did the States-General, of  France from the beginning of the  seventeenth to the end of the eighteenth cen' iry. So legal act^ therefore, lies, in tho way of a new con-  Vocation of representatives of tho  empire. Should the present Emperor  convoke thcm, in so "doing ho would  be. in. perfect accord with the first  founders of his dynasty."  It will be seen by this that Count  Tolstoi found a way out of present  difficulties that involves no surrender  on the part of thc Czar. Tho latter  is asked to do what Peter tho Great  did when troubles beset his empire  and the Life Guards rebelled. If the  Zabor is to bo revived the Russians  of to-'day will tako their first step  towrd constitutional government by  returning to a Russian institution  300 years old.  The first Zabor was called by John  "the Terrible in 1566. To limit or  crush the power of tho hereditary  nobles of the council ho called an assembly" of local nobles, clergy, landholders, military officers, merchants,  and othcr_ groups.  THE"ASSEMBLY OF 1566 -  was called to decide whether lho war .,  with".:Poland should be continued or  not. .Tho Zabor of 1598 was called  to choose a new Czar on the occasion of the extinction of-tho Houso  of - Uuric."~'fher Zemsky Zabor, or  "general assembly of tho land," took  form Sunder the first" of the Uoman-  offs, and passed upon questions ;. of  "war anil traiie' policy and the ' "suppression/of insurrections. -  The Zabor of 1698 was called together by Peter the Great to pronounce judgment on Prinoc-ss Sophia,  who, during the absence of Peter in  western-'..Europe,:., had tried, by tho  help of the Life Guards, to seat'her-  self on the Russian throne. Jn thia  assembly thero were delegates repre-  .M?iiUnfi;.,.ulL_ihe gro'ips or classes    in  the empire. "~'���������'        ���������*������ -���������������������������������������������  ��������� This was the last Zemsky Zabor  called by the Czars, but its constitution serves as a model for the now  national assembly petitioned for by  the zemstvos. The present Czar, in  calling such" an ossembfy. wp.ild bo  acting in accordance with the pledge  given by the founder of the Uoiiianof-  dynasty. who was chosen to rule by  a Zemsky Zabor.   f   FATE AND PHILOSOPHY.

Conviction is growing in the public  mind, of course by this we mean,   the  minds of all who love the British flag  and  revere   Canada's - constitution���������  that the Dominion is now ^controlled  by . a government whose policy  is���������-  Place . and Power at any price; that a  studied    system   of    corrupting   the  electorate, as well as the people's  representatives, is in vogue and men are  being tempted to violate most fervent  pledges,    by   promises  of   contracts,  offices    of    emolument,    or    honors  coveted by an army of vain  and  tini-  bitious self-seekers.     What have  we  seen in  British  Columbia���������what  are.  ive seeing now?   The sacred pledge of  '���������Better Terms" ruthlessly strangled.  What next ?     A   promise   thab   the  lumbermen of British Columbia,   provided they returned government supporters, would be protected frotu  the  inroads and encroachments of lumber  producers    south    of   the    Canadian  boundary.     How  has   that   promise  been kept?     The   people  have   been  treated with supreme contempt,  such  contempt as should   bave   been   long  ago resented by  those who were insulted.   Has one word been  uttered,  condemnatory   of   the   government's  action ?   Have   any   prominent   men  =���������dSffouhced���������therdouble'dealing^of---this;  organized    hypocricy    at    Ottawa ?  Certainly not.   Why?  Because they  are cajoled and misled by sceret influences; agents of men who can afford  to   lose   money   on   lumber,   because  being interested in other works,  tliey  recoup themselves by  obtaining government   subsidies   and   government  expenditures, in certain directions.   It  is just as well to speak   plainly   and  candidly, just as well to warn with no  mincing of words or terms, those who  are at tiroes deceived  by  specious representations and pledges  made only  to be violated.     British Columbia is  spat upon by Sir Wilfrid Laurier; who  protests?   A vacancy  occurs   in   the  Dominion government, is it offered to  a representative of this province, after  the    electors   had  returned   Laurier  supporters    for   every   constituency?  By no means; the subservient,   office  seeking, contract expecting, favor demanding majority had been slavishly  subservient, and naturally,   those  at  the head of affairs   knew   that  from  Senator   Templeman,    Robert   Mac-  pherson,  James   Kiley   and   men   fit  that ilk, patronage would keep their  noses to the grind stone.      Of course,  William  Galliher dare not open his  lips to condemn.   The private bills he  is promoting, monopolises all his time  and then, the bench is not far removed  from tbe bar.    So British Columbia is  biing   betrayed���������and   it remains for  the honest electorate to say how long  ���������this species of bondage is to be toler  ated.   If the representatives of British  Columbia were sincerely loyal  to this  province, why did they sit like dumb  driven cattle during the debate  upon  the dangerous and hateful autonomy  bill?     This   was   their   opportunity,  they could readily and honorably have  said,   ''Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier,    when  .   ���������>    . ...  appealing to the country in Novethbor  last, you authorized your agents to  solemnly promise Better Term? for  British Columbia; you permitted your  agents to announce (and by your  action gave an affirmative coloring to  the declaration) that a conference had  taken place with!,Manitoba and ;the  Territories, that a duty would be  levied upon certain- grades of, cattle  coining into'the North West, and in  return, the people between Winnipeg  and the Rockies' would consent to a  duty on rough lumber from the United  States. Now sir, yoii either deceived  the people or their representatives,  otherwise it isincumbentupbii "you" to'  carry out the solemn pi onuses  registered in your name 1" 'Did': they  do this? Did they soy thoir prayers?  Tho party whip cracked and the. poor  office seeking, patronage hunting pack  crawled and crouched and lowered the  honor and disgraced the so-called  chivalry of the West 1  What more? The Bosses and Gal-  lihers and Macphersons and Rileys et  al, are so far a unit in assisting the  government to coerce, the new North  West provincas. So far, they not only  support the educational clauses of the  hill, but the land reservation clauses.  What does this mean? That a deadly  blow is to be struck at Western progress, by an Immigration policy  shaped, formed and devised with a  view towards filling Alberta and Saskatchewan with foreign legions,  people^w^q^ju^^la^es^where they  come from and will be slaves to homestead inspectors and government  .outers, wheresoever they settle in tlie  Territories, he they Territories or  Provinces. This is a standing menace  to Canada, ever fulfilling what hns  been considered her destiny; we feel  that apart from the school question,  although closely allied vvith the designs  of what Sir Wilfrid Laurier calls "the  minority," beneath all 13 Lhe foundation upon which he proposes to erect  a superstructure that may yet imperil  confederation. To make a second  Quebec���������inducements must be ottered  those of other countries who desire to  strengthen and consolidate French influence in Canada. Hence the autonomy hill!  Hon.   F.

Full on,  Minister oMiducatioti, addressing the  assembly as said:  He believed tho standard of education in British Columbia was not far  behind  any  other   province    in  the  Dominion,   and   thero   was  not the  slightest doubt that  the school-system of Canada was second to none in  the world.   Tliis statement was amply  justified   by   the    adoption    by    the  'British',. Government-   of    the.New  Brunswick school system for South  Africa.   Mr. Fulton congratulated the  people of Revelst9keon tlie growth of  their city.    It had impressed hiin very  much, especially the schoolattendance  which had so rapidly increased,  that  their - school  was now   being classed  witli tho second class cities, a remarkable advance in three or four years.-  Their high school was aiso doing well.  He congratulated the convention on  the exhibit of work.   He emphasized  the value    of   the   manual   training  which    was   heing   given,    resulting  from the   financial   assistance  of Sir  William   Macdonald.   Tliis  was now  recognized as one  of   the   most  important branches of educational work.  Tho   Government  should   encourage  higher  educational  work.    He made  reference to the Rhodes' scholarships,  and said he had great admiration' for  tlie work which Supt.   Robinson  had  done.    He also referred to the scholar  ships given by Mr.  Flummerfelt,  and  expressed the hope  that bis  example  would bu followed by   olher wealthy  men.   The Dean of McGill University  was   tiying    to    arrange   with    the  Government    to    make  gned has opened a Lumber Yard in the  handle all kinds of  ROUGH AND DRESSED LUMBER  SHINGLES, LATH,  ETC.,  ETC.  stock of Kiln-Dried Edge Grain, Finishings  , arid Mouldings of every description  stock. .:���������������������������.

The government were  anxious to promote the educational  interests of the" piovince, ami in-Lliis  direction they had established a normal school, with most encouraging  results.  The speaker was curious to know  how the new school bill, which he  fathered, was being ieceived .throughout the country. He gave Supt.  Bobinson great credit fur his share in  helping to frame the hill. Something  had to be done to meet the rapidly  increasing cost of education. Figures  were quoted showing lhat So20,000  would have been necessary Ust session  to meet the educational reqiiitements  under the former system. The cost  had grown from one-tenth to one-  sixth of tbe total revenue of the  province. The effect of the new bill  would be to increase the interest  taken in education by the people.  The people of the lower Friizer dis-  JwcJ:__reej;gmzjng that something had  to  be done, whose repicsentatives in  Mayor their thanks for the kindness  and hospitality extended to them,  That the Institute records its thanks  to the Hon. Minister of Education in  his address to tho Institute.  That the thanks of tho institute be  accorded Dr. Hay for his interesting  and useful addresses. Dr. Hay, in  a few words of acknowledgement said  he wonld long remember with pleasure  the three days spent with theni in  ltevelstoke. Their Institute was at  high water mark.  A proposal to do away with the  mid-winter entrance examination was  lost.  a horsey customer that he has fallen  heir to ������100,000 left by a rich uncle  in India. As a matter of fact Fluker  should have told Goodwin. However  the windfall proves to be a false  rumour and Goodwin who, acting on  the strength of his supposed good  luck, has been playing fast aud loose  with money in a "frenzied finance"  fashion, finds himself deserted by his  friends. His only friend Alice has  stuck to him through thick and thin,  and when, afterwards, his uncle really  does re-instate hiin as his heir his  ai.ections turn again to his first love.

He said  the city of Kevelstoke was fortunate  in having a man like Mr. Miller at the  head of its school affairs.  The meeting then adjourned.  whom he affected to love because he  thought her to be an heiress.  The characters throughout were  well sustained, consequently, individual mention is unnecessary.  After the ' entertainment a " very  enjoyable dance was held, to which  many remained.  -  Cabinet Making:  UpholEtoiing  Picture Framing  urn Iiu re  Saw Gotham After Dark.

"This business of paying $20 a month  ���������for a cook who wastes your coal,  'stands ln with your butcher and supplies her relatives with sugar and coffee at your expense ls nonsense," said  !Mr. Lot; "Just go down to the Barge  ���������Office and get the imported article You  -may find a diamond in the rough.

Gratitude will  ���������bind her to you." --.-.-���������  :���������:- "That sounds well," said Mrs. Lot,  -'���������hut your imported article Isn't likely  to understand English, and she wout  know the meaning of gratitude."  - ."-We will teach - her English,    my  ���������dear,'���������' said Mr. Lot, "and we can then  innke sure that she picks- up no slang."  ,��������� Mr. Lot went, down and picked her  out.   She was about twenty-five years  .old.   The Interpreter- told hlni that she  .was a Dane, and thai she was anxious  .to do. housework.    She had formerly  .been employed    behind a plough   or  .tome.such farm utensil.  A Mrs. Lot put In a week's hard work  :? ..wjth Mary, showing hcr by signs how  .her work was���������to  be  done.   , Mary's  moon-like face never varied In expres-  ;- Bion.   She always looked, blank.  "She has the unemotional . placid  /disposition which ls so essential for  housework," said Lot' proudly, when  his wife suggested that Mary was stupid. "A nervous housewife makes double the work. Now if the roof fell In  It would not Jar Mary."  ' "No; and she wouldn't begin to clean  up the muss until I had - told ber,"  '���������aid Mrs. Lot.  Lot  gave  Mary her first lesson  ln  English on Sunday morning.' As she  -appeared he said:-  "Good morning, Mary."  - Mary looked at him blankly. By repeating that phrase all the forenoon he  'taught Mary to say "Morn'n'." Then  Lot worked all the afternoon teaching  Mary to say "Good evening," and Mary  ���������aid.  "Even'n'."- ;  -  "Yon see, my dear, that after Mary  has picked up a few words she will  Advance rapidly. I am going to en-  Joy teaching her."  - "Now, my dear," said Lot to his  trite on the following Sunday, "I am  ^oing'to increase Mary's vocabulary."  ��������� - When Mary had finished her -work  Lot went into the kitchen,-and, point'  ing to the'.stove, said:.  .-.-"Stove, Mary, stove-^stove���������stove."  ; ���������������������������Morn'n*/' said Mary.    ,-.  : '.'Stove!..'

Eald Lot.  - "Dammit!" said Mary, promptly, and  %jot was. sorry.  " "Stove,1 Mary; say stove."-    -  "Dammit! morn'n'," replied Mary.  Mary came to Mrs. Lot two nights  later and surprised her:  "   "Can go out, even'n'?"  ��������� "When 'did you learn that, Mary?"  "Can go out, dammit?" asked Mary.  "Yes, go," said Mrs. Lot, "and vou  needn't-come back if you don't want  to.".  But Mary did come back. When  callers asked for Mrs. Lot Mary would  reply sometimes 'Morn'n'," sometimes  "Even'n'," and again "Ding-ding, dam-  - mit" Mrs. Lot spent all of her leisure  ' time writing notes of apology to her  friends, and telling -them that Mary  1������raa one of Mr. Lot's "rough diamonds."

ROBERT SASISON^ I The Gypsy's Saerifiee j  | A   SECRET   REVEALED  CHAPTER  XX.  Madgo. had been married live days;  and on this, the morning of the  sJxth, as she stood tit the window  of the London hotel, and looked  down at tho crowded street nlone;  which rushed the cabs and omnibuss-  os, and flowed the interminable  stream of eager, restless people, she  asked herself whether site were awake  or dreaming; and, indeed, in her lovely eyes there was a look that was  something like bewilderment, mingled with the dreamy expression of  perfect  happiness  and joy-  For once Uncle Jake's advice had  been followed. Royce had made up  his accounts that morning and received his share of the profits, and  with this by no means large sum he  had started on their wedding trip.  He had chosen London because it  ���������would be easier to baffle pursuit in  that direction, if anyone had chosen  to make it.  There had been only time on their  way to tho station for Madge to  purchase a hat���������tho first fshe liad  ever worn���������and Royce. too, exchanged his rough, tweed jacket for a conventional coat; but the morning after  their arrival, and directly after  breakfast,  she said  with a blush':  "���������Tack, will you let me go out for  a  little whilo?"  "Let'you go out? Why dearest? Are  you going to run  away from  me?"  "Not yet," she said softly, tho  blush deepening. "May I go, .Tack?"  "No," he suid. with an assumed  sternness. "You'll lose your way.  What do you want to go for���������and  alono.  I take It?"  "Ves. I want to go alone," she  said timidly. "Why I want to go is  my secret. And I won't lose my  way, I can't go very far, and I  know the name of the hotel and tho  street."  "Why  musn't  I go  with you?"  "Because you: must not," she said,  and she went and laid her head     on  liis  shoulder  to  hide her blushes.  "Row    long   are    you going to be  away?"  he said.    "I shall count tho  minutes while you are gone! To leave  me so soon!  I wonder you -haverthe'|-.tO   go -into  heart. Madgo!"  "Two- hours.", she said. '.'Yes;  that wi.ir.be enough." :.She- got ' bis  . pipe and tobacco' from the. mantle,  and put. them in his hand. "There,  I. shall ���������; be back almost before you  have finished your pipe."  "It would be a liig one to last  two hours, Madge!" ho said with a  ��������� laugh that was rather rueful. "I  wish you'd tell me what you arc'  after. London's a big place, and you  have never been in it beforo. Hotter  let me; go with you," and he. ^triotl  lo look into her face, but site evaded  him   and   with  a   shy   kiss  run    from  the   room.   Royce felt half inclined to go after  her and recall his consent, but there  had been an -undercurrent of earnestness and entreaty in hur voice which  kept him from doing so, and he lit  his pipe and tried not to feel anxious  nbout  her;  Madge put on hcr hat and shawl  quickly, and. going downstairs, asked for Oxford street. She had noticed as they drove to the hotel a big  thoroughfare full of shops, and, asking its name. Royce had told her it  was Oxford street. The hotel porter  with a curious glance at her, directed  her. ami she walked quickly up the  ���������Strand-and through. Leicester Square  looking into all the linen draper's  shops as she went with a careful  .scrutiny. She found one to suit her  'at las', and. going in asked with a  calmness that barely concealed her  timidity for some ready-made  dresses.  =iiir!h**--=n������n -conducted=her^to-t-h'e-p!-o-=  per department, of the vast and gor-  geo'.i!- place, and there Madgo pur-  rhns-.-d a couple of plain, but pretty  frocks; one a dark blue, tho other a  gray. She also bought some collars  ti -.id cuffs, and was tempted by some  daintily    made  shoes   in   another  de-1  sho paid for with some money which  sho had been saving for years, and  took thorn to the hotel  in a cab.  The two hours had barely elapsed  nntl Royce wtin looking at his watch  for the tenth time, and wondering  whether ho hadn't bettor go in search  of her, when tho door openod and  she entered, standing with a burning  blush on hor face and downcast  eyes.  Royco uttered an exclamation of  amazement, which merged into rapturous admiration as hc gazed at  hor.  "Why���������why, Madge, I didn't know  you!" he exclaimed. "How���������how on  earth have you managed it. and so  quickly?   Let me look  at you!"  He took her by Jhe shoulders and  turned her around twice, his oyes  large with wonder; then he caught  hcr to him and kissed her with the  loving approval which is su sweet  and precious  to every wmnn.  "This isn't my Madgo!". hc ox-  claimed laughing nnd stroking her  hair. "Thi.s is some grand London  lady who has paid me tjie honor of  a morning call! And���������and it fits  like, like a glove! Good Heaven,  Madge, is it magic or wliat?" and  he hold her at arm's length and looked hor up and down with passionate  admiration in his eyes. "Ami what  an idiot I must be not to guess what  yot were after! But I never thought  of that!"  "You thought 1 should hc content  to go about with you in my old  brown dress, and red shawl?" said  Madge in a low voice.  "Of course," he said. "They were'  beautiful   In  niy oyes.  and    I'd     bo  como used  to them.   They  were part  of J'OU, you see."  Her eyes were raised to his with  melting gratitude for an   instant.  "But how did you manage it?" he  demanded. laughing as he pulled her  down beside him and continuing to  examine the neat blue dress, the  dainty shoos, the white collar and  cuffs. "What wonderful creatures  women aro! I should have thought  you would have been too frigh toned  those"._��������� crowded .streets  alone, much less into shops! Wonderful!'���������'��������� a.:  "It was rather? terrible,"./she said  ���������softly,."and it was hard to fix upon,  the right shop; ,,nnd; then the people  ���������I mean the men and women in the  shops���������stared so. I suppose������������������" her  lips quivered for an instant, "I suppose thoy saw I was a gypsy. Jack."  "Nonsense! No ono could .. mlot.ol=o  you for anything but what you are.  ���������a lady,  Madge."  "And you  like  it,   Jack?"  "Like it? Like Isn't tho word," ho  said promptly; "nnrl, 'ook 'here.  Modg-e,   though    I  don't   know     any-j pering together and glancing  at  " j box.    He drew  the curtains partially  so as to hide her,  but wilh a   proud  "Yes, a regular rig out. But I  shall always prefer the brown dress  and the red shawl, Madge' What  have you done with' thorn? I hope  you haven't made waj' with them."  "No," she said softly. "1 havo  kept them. I will keep them to remind mc," she put her amis around  his neck, "of tho days whon you  loved mo though I was onlj' a common gypsy girl."  "No more of that, dearest!" he  said. "You are Mrs. Uoyce Lundon  now. Hut look here. I'll tell you  what wo will do. We will go to the  theatre to-night Madge. You'll seo a I  real piny then, and the womon in thoj  boxes and stalls in their evening |  dresses; that will bo better than my  poor attempts at description. And  now let us go out and liny sonic  moro nice things. 1 want to show  you the streets, and���������oh. ull sorts of  things. There's such a lot yo" ought  to nee, that I don't know whero to  begin first. But never mind, wo'H  take it a.s  it comes."  ^Jien she camo down with her outdoor things there was moro exclamations and admirations over tho  pretty jacket sho hud bought, and  once again Roj-ce told her that ho!  should  not have known her.  Thej' went out, and Roj'ce began  his part of cicerone. To Madge the  great cltj- seemed, as it seems to aU  who see It for the lirst time, too  marvelous to be real.

She was  so absorbed and rapt in delight tliat  she did not notico tho attention thoy  were attracting.

Most woman, alas! have not a  good walk. Civilization has taught  us many things, among others the  mincing gait which fashionable women have fallen into. Madge's walk,  though as graceful as that of an  Athenian woman of old, was uueon-  venional. She moved with the freedom and ease one sees in .Egyptian,  girls as they come and go from the  wells with tlieir pitchers ou their  heads; and hor lithe, supple form,  notwithstanding its fashionable dress  and jacket, seemed to move to music.  In tho middle of the ��������� day .Royce  took her to a well-known restaurant  for -lunclii and Madgo, though out-  wartlly..-calm and self-possessed, was  inwardly almost too excited to eat  the dainty things which the well-  troihed -and , attentive wniter'-brought  them, i  Koj-ce had bought her a nent opera  cloak, >and taken. a box, judging  rightly that she would be - more at  ease there than .iir, the. publicly of  the stalls.

Then he laughed softly, happily. "We were onlj'  married j-estcrdaj-."  The other opened his eyes, tlien ho  glanced at Madge.  "Will you be offended if I sny  that Mrs. Landon is onu of the loveliest women I over saw?"  "Not a bit; because it's true," said  Royce, Hushing proudly. "And if  j-ou knew her better you would add  ���������the best."  "I'm sure of thai," said tho other  "Well," ho shook hands with Roj-ce,  "jou aro a lucky fellow!" Anil after  a little while he bowed to Madge and  lelt  the  box.  "Who was that, .lack?"  ".Lord Rochester," said Royce.  "Ho is an old friotul of mine.

Tho origin of belief in "horseshoe  luck" is so ancient that its origin  novor has been determined with certainty, and no superstition is moro  universal, says the Chicago Chronicle. Ever since horses began to  wear slices those crescents of iron  have been accounted lucky emblems  of air peoples, races and nations that  hnvo beon acquainted with their use.  The Chinese, for instance, sny thoy  nuil th'vm up over their doors ns a  charm against evil spirits, because  of tho close resemblance in shape between them and the .arched body of  tho sacred snnke, Nagandva, one of  their principal  deities.  Ask a Turkish Mohammedan? for  information on the subject, and he  Will tell you that it is because they  arc in form like n crescent, the s-ac-  rod emblem of islam.  A Polish' Jew will explain that at  TO MAKE COTTAGE CHEPSE.  two  rein  in  ���������I'n thousands of homes throughout  the country, cottage cheese is a familiar table dainty. Yet it is doubtful if many of the producers could  ���������give more than a superficial account  of what takes place in the process of  making this ������������������ form of cheese. It is  however, one of tho simplest of oir  cheeses and consists mainly of two  substances, wa'ter_ an'd casein dilac-  tatc. The latter "is one of tho  chemical compounds* or salts,  suiting from the union of casein  the milk with lactic acid formed -.  bacterial fermentation of milk sugar.  Good cottage cheese should havo a  soft texture, being neither .mushy,  dry nor sawdust like. Such a tox-  ture will accompanj' a moisture content of 70 to 75 p.c.  'i'ho flavor i-.hould be that of a  -mildly soured milk or well-ripeno'd  croam, with an entire absence of  bitter taste, flavor of stable, or other  objectionable qualities. Siich flavor  may usually be secured by tho use of  a good starter, but if too much whey  is retained, the cheeso may' ba sour.  Flavor and texture are quite closely  connected, at this point, and alow  draining curd is liable to result in  poor textured and poor flavored  cheese.  The various steps'in making cottage cheeso maj' be "'summarized' ns  follows: Use skimmilk rather than  wholo milk, to avoid less fat. To  secure proper flavor nn'd speedy souring, add a small amount of a good  starter.. This starter should bo pre-  tho Passover the blood sprinkled up-1 pared from clean, fresh milk, separ-  on   the  lin-tol   and   doorposts,   in-the ��������� ate'd from thc cream and placed in a  boing woll fertilized,, though not nuf-  ficicnt to mako good tho drain on  tho soil. This result was obtained  from soil that might bo termed  gravelly loam. Assuming that tho  field is to bo used for corn, stable  manure is applied at the rate of ton  tons Por acre, and a wheat or oat  crop maj' follow tho corn without  additional fertilizing-, and clover bo  seeded with the grain. Tho clover  sod should bo manured and ploughed,  under for a potato crop. This gives  one a throe j'ear rotation in which  clover alternates every third season,  with manure, and giving to the soil  just the elements required to produce  big crops of grain or potatoes. Tlie  corn crop may bo used instead of  potatoes if desired; In case the  .clover shows a weak growth', it  would be well to apply lime to."..the  soil at the time the crop is sown,  which follows the ploughing under  of\ the clover sod, by this method  when it comes around to the clover  again, the lime has removed tho  aciditj-  from the soil.  manner directed by thoir ritual,  forms the chief ".points of an arclit;  hence, obviousl.v," tlie value of arch-  sliaped talismans such as horseshoes  aro.  The stolid and unimaginative 'It us-'  isian peasant, on the other han'd,  maintains that tho luck associated  with. the. horseshoe, is. chiefly, dnp. to  th'e metal,'irrespective of its shape,  iron being traditionally a charm  wherewith to nullify the .malevolent  designs of evil  spirits and goblins.  Tn England, up to comparatively  recent, times, horseshoes were extensively used almost everywhere"���������/��������� as  anti-witch   charms,   and   the    custom  thing about, women's  dress,  I  know  somehow,     that  it's just  the     thing  j-ou ought  to  havo bought.

GOT AWAY WITH THE FISH.  Story   oif  a  Grimsby  Trawler   and  a Danish Gunboat.  A gunshot rent tho air. The captain turned Prom his supervision of  tho men to find a Danish gunboat  on his port-bow. A little drama,  enacted in Icelandic waters, had begun,   says  the  London  Daily  Mail.  It was a fishing vessel hailing from  Grimsby that was thus rudely surprised. The skipper is the most popular man in the Lincolnshire port.  For a week his crew had worked  hard Tit the nets, and had gathered  a rich harvest for their labors, when  the gunboat eame upon  the scone.  Could he bo within tho limits?  That was tho captain's first  thought. No. But the summons  could not very well bo defied. In a  moment his mind wns niade up. Ho  must faco tho music. But in his surrender Captain   did not despair, lie has a stout heart and  a brave spirit, and, while the gunboat was sending a "deputation" to  tho trawler, hc hold a hurried "conversation with tho mate. If the  Danish authorities had but known  tho secret that passed between the  two  men  then!'  So a Danish oJIicor and three men  camo aboard, and the captain was  formally under arrest.

But whilo thc magistrates wero  putting their heads tog-ether and deciding upon this penal Ly, there was  activity aboard tho trawler. The  mate remembered the captain's conversation. ' Tie was aler.t and keen-  eyed. Tho captain had been.several  hours ashoro. That meant that the  court had gono against hiin.

Dr.     Loomis   on the Increase     in  the Mortality From Heart  Disease.  "Bad whiskey, rheumatism, mental  strain and high living are among the  leading causf.-s of heart disease," said  Dr. Henry P. Loomis, of New York,  when his attention was culled to tho  report of the Mutual Lifo Insurance  Company, which heads the death list  with 510 cases of organic heart disease out of a total of 0,397 deaths,  and pu'ta Bright's disease fourth in  tho list. "It is easier, however, to  admit a tremendous incroaso in the  number of deaths from heart disease  than to point out anj' one reason for  tho increase.  "Here, for instance, Is a chart  sent out by the Health Board,  which illustrates the steady increase  in mortality from heart disease in  this city since 1868, and it includes  a tablo of figures of deaths resulting  from Bright's disease and heart disease combined."  "Tliis tablo, which is not nearly so  alarming as the life insurance report,  shows that in 1868 13 persons out  of evory 10,000 died from tho causes  named. In 1901 the proportion had  jumped up 'to 30 in overy 10,000 or  more than  double.  "There are cases of heart disease  which are not complicated with  Bright's disease," continued Dr.  Loomis,' "but it is, not often that a  sufferer frost..
