A fow weeks ago a firm ol housebreakers, who had contracted to demolish the ho uses upon a plot of  ground for a syndicate of builders,  who had prepared plans for new'  property, mado an unexpected haul.  Tho house bail been razed as far as  thc first floor, ancl thu workman-was  laboriously endeavoring to tlislotlgo  the largo, firmly embedded stones  forming tho chimney. With a sudden wrench, some hundredweight of  bricks fell with a crash, tuul the  workman wus astonished lo soe a  number of what ho thought wero  bright brass discs distributed among  the debris. Closer examination, how-  over, revealed the fact, that they  wero goltl coins. When tho cavity  from whicli they hatl been displaced  was searched, two other largo bags,  containing both gold antl silver coins  to tlio value of over ������10,000, woro  found. I'he cavity had evidently  boon tho hidingjplaco of a former  tenant, who had 110 faith in tho  security of banks, ancl had died  without betraying the existence of  his  hoard. ,-.  DIAMONDS IN DIHT.  Another valuable Iind was made  during the demolition of a largo  manufacturing jeweller's factory,  Two floors of the building had been  devoted respectively to the manufacture of the articles, antl jcwel-cut-  tir.ig,  polishing,   and  setting.  When the floor-boards'" wero raised,  in the space between the beams and  tho coiling of the rooms below wero  found small pieces of gold and silver, littlo odds aijd ends of diamonds,  rubies, emeralds, and other valttablo  as stones, that hatl fallen on the floor,  and had worked their way through  tho chinks botween tho boards. r;  ; It-was estimated .'that thero wero  approximately fifty years' accumulation beneath those boards, representing a value of something like S25,-  000.  A curious discovery was made a  short timo ago in the courso of a  demolition of a ramshackle building  in the Knst Knd of London. Tho  hou.so had been condemned, and tho  housebreakers were carrying out  tlieir work with grout zest. They  hnd only just removed the roof, howevor, when they camo across a number of discolored spoons. A little  rubbing showed that thoy vi\re macjp  of solid silver. Furiher W01OT revealed other articles of the silvcimuith's  craft, such as cups, vases, candle-  slicks, both" in goltl anil silver, con-  ccalotl in  flrc-llucs and  other  places.  No trace could bc found of tho  owners, and it vvas surmised that  tho house was thc haunt of export  burglars. Apparently the mon had  not hatl an opportunity to dispose  of their ill-gotten gains, antl had  concealed thcm until a favorable  momont. Tn tl.e meantime, tho men  hail probably boon arrested, and sentenced to lo'ng terms of penal servitude.  Inslnt.ccs arc brought to notico  from time to liinc of peraons who,  distrusting the usual places for tho  accommodation of thoir savings,  have had recourse to cunning devices for the. concealment of their  treasure within their own homes.  JIVSTIiltY OF A STOVE.  One of the most romantic discoveries of this kind was made in a  Nortii of England seaport, near tho  docks. For somo thirty years tho  shop had been tenanted by an unpretentious owner. Ife lived alone,  ami simply supplied tho neighboring  tenants and sailors with their small  necessities. Yet he had a very  flourishing business, and it was  freely whispered that ho had .made  a small fortune. Whon ..ho died, however, no fortune Was forthcoming.

Held  in  tho  implacable grip  of memory,  Hardwick confessed  that it was.   Thoy had grown  apart;  ho had  bocomo absorbed*    in  his business, and sho���������well, sho had  withdrawn into herself.   Then motherhood, with all its cares, hnd como  to occupy tho vacant rooms in    hor  heart.   Their tbreo children had mado  her  lot  less barren  with  their love,  although they had not affected their  father's   lifo    to  any  groat  extent.  During tho first years of their existence ho had been engrossed in    tho  effort to secure a good position. After    the obtaining of that ho    had  mado tha firm's interests his    own,  and had not fouml  timo to givo to  his  cliildrcn.   They wero quite    safe  ln their mother's charge.   Thus had  he over argued within himself,     and  selfishly  had   left   to   hor  tho     complete care of thoir welfare.  Making a strong effort, tho manager put down the letter which was  making such havoc with his usual  serenity of mind. Ho would have jjo  sentiment. Scarcely had this decision 1:cen arrived at than his fingers  rebelled against it. Tlio soiled, yellow paper was again within their  grip. With a furtive glance around,  he kissed tho writing, and then,  completely resigning himself to tho  mystic spell, loft tho table and flung  himself on a couch. Ho closod his  eyes, and livoti ovon moro completely in the past. Vague, pleasant ro~  colioctioi.ts soothed his tired brain.  He forgot that he was a faulty husband, and for the timo lived in tho  Utopia which youthful dreams had  pictured. Involuntarily ho raised  the letter to his lips, and hold it  there. .Surely ho wus a youth  again!  In soiun mysterious fashion Memory held communion with tho  tlreiiin-sjili il, and handed her captive  over.

"Wliat has come over old Hardwick? He has boen a different man  during tho last fow days. Yesterday  when I spoke of coming back at  night, he actually said that ho had  decided to divide my work betweon  two, and that In futuro we would  not havo so much overtime. I got  a shock, especially when ho added  that he hud already spoken to tho  head of tho firm about* anothor man.  Tho speaker was Hurry Brown, tho  individual whoso ' place the dream-  spirit had caused Hurwick to fill,  liis audience consisted of threo  other employees, all of whom shared  his astonishment. After a few moments' conversation each disappeared to his own part of the warehouse,  leaving Urown to his own meditations. As a consequence of the manager's kiirdly words these wero  moro cheorful than they liad been  for some timo provious. Hardwick  was a stern man, and those with  whom he had rubbed shoulders in  businoss wore wont to say that he  possessed little of the milk of human kindnoss, hence his unexpected  kindness had been the moro tefresh-  Ing.  As, with a cherry face. Brown ditl  his customary work, Hardwick approached. Ho watched the younger  man for a moment, then broke the  silence.  "Your partner in this department  arrives Iiy to-morrow's express," ho  said slowly, "and the next day I  leave for a week's holiday."  Ilrown fairly gaspe'd. Thc idea of  tho boss, who had nover wasted  more than a day or tvvo at Christmas on holiday-making, going away  so suddenly for a whole week was  too strango for belief. Presently ho  managed to reply, "You certainly  nood a holiday, sir, and I hope that  you'll  enjoy it."  "I shall do that," Hardwick answered-with an assumed smile: nnd,  after giving a fow businoss instructions, departed humming an old  love song. The btwiltlercd Brown  looked  after him in amazement.  "He must have had a fortune loft  him," ho muttered. "If the "holiday  he intends taking were his honeymoon I rip ho could not look happier. But I'll givo tho puzzle up,  and gratefully accept my good fortune"  About the  ....House  a  DOMESTIC  RECIPES.  Cako Making.���������A common mistako  in Cako making is tho practice of  baking a full roceipt ut a time, no  matter how small tho family may  be. As a result tlioro is too much  cakn on hand, it becomes stalo and  eventually is dislikud. Most cakes  aro mucli better if oaten the same  day thoy arc made. Sinco after a  litllo exporictico cakes aro mado so  quickly, -it is far better to bako often, using only'half of tho roceipt at  a time. Another mistake, which often is the means of spoiling a goad  cake, is tho custom of using too  much flavoring*. If tho materials  usod arc of thc best, tho tasto  should bo so dainty that very littlo  of any flavoring is requirod. .The  icing sliould always bo flavored delicately. Tho speediest and most satisfactory form of baking cako for  family use, or for guests, is in a  sheet, usually about an Inch in  thickness. Ice as usual nml cut into  squares, rounds or any desired form  of serving.  Sweet Potatoes���������Boil throe sweet  potatoes of medium size until done.

"During say thc first 40 years of  railroad history, ..tlie engines woro  not, as a rule, worked to their vilest capacity; but as timo went'on,  tho requirements of railroad work  became moro exacting, and the period during which an engine was in  tho rouwd-houso grow gradually  shorter, until to-day a locomotive,  especially if it is in freight service  is almost constantly at work, the  only interval being the time necessary for oiling, inspection and repairs.

Tlic fascinating clement of romanco  rarely enters into tho prosaic proceedings of a company meeting iu  tho city, but the shareholders of tho  British Nortli Borneo Company *sat,  spellbound the othor day whilo their  chairman. Sir Charles Jessel. told  a remarkable story of a diamond  valley,   says   thc London   Rxprass.  At the end of the narration a  ���������piece-of -rock��������� passcd-fromWand- to-  haiiJ, caused such looks of curiosity  antl wonder that Kir Chari'cs quietly observed: "You cannot expect to  see   the  diamonds   glistening   in   it."  On May 16 tho company received a  letter, in which the writer referrod  to somo discoveries which ho mado  "many years ngo," beforo leaving  British Xortii Borneo. "They nro  always flashing through my mind,"  ho wrote, with au unconscicis touch  of pathos, "and not knowing how  to make use of them, 1 may as well  let the company havo the benefit of  thom."  Thon camo the revelation of tho  secret that had become a burden to  him. After leaving Kimborley ho  wont to Borneo, where he was engaged by Mr. Van tier Woven to '  s'irvey his tobacco estate on tho  Labuk River.  "It is there that I found real diamond bearing ground," he stated.  "It is identical with the Kimborley  blue clay, witli all the pieces of carbon and burnt garnets in it. Anybody who has seen diamond.1 ground  will notico it nt onc"e; It sticks out"  in huge boulders as if thrown up  by somo  eruptiorj."  Returning to the camp on tho  night of his discover}*, lho writer  found that he was not wanted on  tho estate any longer.  "I never had tho fortune to return," he added.  The company was ceptical, but  Uiey sent out instructions for .samples to be taken. Tho samples arrived only a few days ago, and were  found to be of true bluo ground,  identical with tliat from which tho  diamonds are extracted in South  Africa.

It is getting more evident, ns lhe  discussion proceeds, that the Territories have at least two serious  objections to the proposed autonomy  bill at Ottawa. Both objections are  based on the same principle���������and that  is that the Ottawa Government should  not deprive the new provinces of a  portion of their rights, that in fact  they are entitled to come into Confederation as full-fledged provinces with  authority to control their own lands  and with authority to adopt their own  educational system.  There may be a third objection and  that is to the proposition to split the  Territories in tvvo. As to this how1  ever the Territories are themselves  divided. Some wish for two provinces  ���������while others wish for one. 'Itis not a  very vital question. Tvvo provinces  are more expensive than one no doubt  but neither rhyme nor reason has  controlled the size of the other provinces in the past any more than  rhyme or reason hns had anything to  say about the size of the American  individual states, so why should we  ask for either on the present occasion?  But it does seem a shame that the  two great, questions of lands and  schools should be placed in such a  position that instead of cither question being finally settled as far as the  Dominion parliament goes for all time,  both questions vvill be constantly  recurring questions at Ottawa for no  one knows how many years to come  yet.  For that  is  what  it  undoubtedly  "comes   to.     Every   other    province,  except* Manitoba, owns its own  lands.  Manitoba owns part of its lands and  compromised for   the rest With   the  " Dominion���������an act of freedom if not of  wisdom on Manitoba's part.   To own  the lands, means to state the terms on  which they shall  be open for settlement and it also means an immigration  policy.    Is it fair that  the new  provinces should   not   within   tlieir   own  borders have the whole say  in such  important matters?   If Saskatchewan  prefers one kind   or  immigration   to  Alberta, shall not Saskatchewan have  it?   And if net, why not?     Young  Isapoleon may think his  immigration  policy   such   a   world-beater   that   it  Ehould not be interfered with.     Perhaps  we  are   unfair to Mr. Sifton in  this, because it seems he has not been  consulted about the Bill.   At least he  was not consulted about the separate  school clauses.so let us dohitn the kindness of supposing he vvas not consulted  on the other equally important matter.  But there is more than  the  immigra-  tion~poirey���������tlfei^is^the-credit^of'-thc-  new provinces.    "Without crown lands  the new provinces will be handicapped  in   every   market���������limited   in   every  legitimate aspiration  they may have  for their own development.   And with  the lands, ro the timber and the  minerals,   "Where vvill be their  railway  policy for they will   have   no   aid   to  give a tramway even?   Where will be  tlieir mining policy !    For without the  mines there can be no policy but  that  of taxation.    "What about  their saw  mills?   For without timber   of   their  own and the lord of the fee residing  at   Ottawa   the   lumber   barons   will  disregard  every   local   consideration.  Do we want to have the new provinces  so handicapped as this ?   Whut do the  Solid Seven   from   British   Columbia  think of  it?     What   would   British  Columbia* be without  control   of  ils  lands, its timber, its oil fields, its coal,  copper and gold ?   "We are indignant  enough to have so little control over  our fisheries and   we   are   seeking   to  get some   control.     Suppose   all   the  other things were swept away  from  us?   Would we not ask the West to  help us?   And shall we not help  the  West ?  As for the separate schools, it i.s a  question of whether tho West shall  control its own education or not. It  5s not true that the proposed Bills only  inspect. The truth is that several  clauses have been added to the education clauses of the Northwest Territories Act of 1S75 and theso clauses  give the Dominion Parliament an  overseeing control of the educational  .system of the new provinces, a thing  they have never in the past proposed  either to the Territoiiesor themselves.  Again we say it is ii shame that the  new provinces should be compelled to  accept legislation which contains the  seeds of litigation and appeals to the  Privy Council compared to which the  Manitoba appeals were childplny, But  Ihey contain more even than this--  they contain a separate school light  for every future election all over tlie  Dominion. What parliament does  now, a future parliament can repeal  and future parliaments will have the  question bofore it forever until the  whole matter is turned over to the  provinces where it belongs, for them  to settle as their consciences and their  wisdom diie.ct.  But the Solid Seven from British  Columbia must do their duty and  stand shoulder to shoulder with the  rest of the West, and if tho Laurier  Government insist in forcing, separate  schools on tho new provinces, they  must show their hand against coercion  or take the consequences.  But what a chance the lumber  interests of this province are missing  if they let Manitoba and the Ten-itoiies  stand apart from theni on theso matters. Vote for me and 1 vvill vote for  you is not an unknown thing in politics. "Stand by British Columbia for  protection to our lumber interests aud  we vvill stand by you on the questions  of public lands and education," is not  an unfair proposition where the objects  are the obtaining of justice for all.  a man properly entitled to the appellation of statesman.  There will, of course, be much speculation as to the result that this controversy over separate schools in the  tvvo new provinces may have on the  fortunes of the Government and the  Liberal party. Tt may prove to be the  Nemesis of the Liberal action over the  school question in 1S0(> and bring as  much disaster to the Liberals as the  Hemedia! Bill brought lo the Conservatives at that time, lint we are  disposed lo think that the Coveiiiienf  and the pally will weather the storm  and that Sir Wilfrid Laurier's hand  will be found not to have lost its cun-  ningtind tluit tactics similar to those  which gained him power in 1SIX5 will  enable him to retain it now. Mr.  Sirton vvill avoid tlie unpopularity  tliat would --'inevitably have attached  to him had he remained in office.and  assented to the Premier's policy, and  vvill in due course emerge again to take  a prominent part in the struggle in  the party for supremacy, wliich will  inevitably take place on the retirement -of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.���������News-  Advertiser.  MR. SIFTON S RESIGNA TI ON  According to some of our Liberal  contemporaries, the resignation by  Sifton of* the Ministry of the Interior  should' make Conservatives delirious  with joy. We hope that some explanation vvill be forthcoming of tlie  grounds on which this supposition is  based, since without such explanation  the assertion is a riddle insoluble.  With our present lights, wo eau see  no particular reason why Conservatives should feel jubilant over Mr.  Sif ton's retirement. If there are some  Liberals who suppose thnt in the Minister's resignation,Conservatives think  they see the beginning of the end of  the Laurier administration, tbey fouu  a very low estimate of their opponents'  political acumen and foiesight. As a  matter of fact, the resignation hns not  caused a great amount of surprise.  Those acquainted with current events  at Ottawa rather expected that Mr.  Sifton would letire last autumn and  we are inclined to think that had not  a federal general election been impending, that anticipation would have  been realised.

'���������'  That Mr. Sifton's retirement at thi.s  time, ,nnil   for   the   reason   wliieli   is  alleged, is a clever tactical move, cannot be  denied.     It   would be difficult  to   say   whether   the   Governmeet, or  Mr.   Sifton   is   entitled   to   tlie more  hearty .congratulations on the event.  The former  is   relieved of a situation,  the continuance   of   which   boded no  good to the government.    Mr. Sifton  is   even   more   happy in the occasion.  Not only  does he escape from a position of probably very serious personal  embarrassment,   but hc  resigns office  ostensibly in  deference to principles,  the   maintenance  of   wliich   are   undoubtedly popular in the West.

These gentlemen forgot the truth of  the old adage that the vain man is  ofteu humbled, and surely thc chastening process has been applied lo the  Liberal party in Canada, wiihin recent  weeks.

It's  a chance to grow  young, healthy an3  beautiful while yuti  sleep. Wrin U 1 e s  mny be removed  and deep lines bo  softened, and yet  no money need ba  spent. A youthful  expression may be given to the face,  and moro graceful curves to tho body,  and yet no time need be wasted in  Delsarte exercises. ' It's only a lillie  matter of sleeping right.  A physical culturlst has arisen who  has a new theory in regard to the correct way to lie will Is sleepns. Madam Pote Is her ntine, and for lior  theory she claims much. It revolutionizes all Ideas in regard ������o sleeping  ever given in the past.  She says: "Away with tha pillows.  Allwomen sleep with their heads too  high at night."  Not even worry will mclce a 'woman  grow wrinkled and old so rapidly as  Bleeping with her head on a high" pillow. Sleep with no pillow at all. Havo  your head on a level with your body,  and, better still, rest it for a whilo  ������ven lower than your body.  And here is the philosophy of lt:  'All during the day, wben the head is  held in Its normal position, the muscTes  of the face drop, and when the tissues  lire, lacking In strength",' and the skin  flabby, wrinkles come. At night we  ehould counteract the drooping of tho  muscles. We should try and lift the  tissues up. By sleeping with the head  on a level with the bedy or with the  head lower than the body, the drooping lines which give an expression of  care and age to the face gradually  disappear.  Hero is an exercise, highly recommended by Madam Pote:   -Always before retiring press the fingers hard upon the upper part cf the face and rub'  upward.   This brings into play tht opposite movement of the muscles. All  day their tendency has been a downward droop.    At night rub them  upward.   It is well to remember that opposition movements, if practised regularly, always produce harmonious developments.    If ,the ek:'n Is dry it is  ���������wise to apply thoroughly a pure cold  cream each night. before beginning tiie  upward rubbing movement.  .   But It is not aione sleeping without  {pillows that  Madam  Pote  advocates.  Bhe also says: "Lie flat on your back.  It's all nonsense about bad dreams.   It  fs the most healthful position one can  assume when going to sleep.    Lie flat  ou the back, and for strengthening a  ���������weak back let the spine touch, the bed  Its entire length.. This"will strengthen  the spine and tend to "make one stand  erect.    While lying on the  back  the  epine should be curved    outward*  instead of Inward at the waist line."  Now for the arms.   Instead of fall-  ling at the aides. Madam Pote says:  "Raise the arnns so that the hands are  parallel with the head.   This position.  ���������will raise the bony frame of the chest  from the lungs.    Tho effect of   this  Will bo to give the lungs the fullest  amount of space compatible with the  faot that they are enclosed by the ribs,  thereby making respiration more easy.  "As is well known, one of the first  signs' of approaching sleep is deep and  even breathing.      Even an    obstinate  case Of insomnia may often be cured  by forcing oneself to breathe    slowly  end regularly, and it can easily he seen  thow much the position of   the arms  mentioned In the foregoing -will aid In  obtaining    entire   relaxation and tha  consequent rest to the muscles.  .   "It should be remembered that wa  are but creatures of evolution, and that  the erect posture which we assume is  in some respects not the one best calculated to bring out the most gracaful  et a woman's curves.    All day long  every   woman- has    to    support   the  weight of her arms and shoulders. Ths  necessity tends to shorten the *nu6cles  which, underlie and support the curves  of   the bust   ��������� It is the   woman who  lounges���������the woman ' who rests���������tha*  obtains the best figure,* and ehe iota  lt simply because she    unconsciously  stretches and exercises the muscles of  her bust whenever she locks her hands  above her lead and lets herself drop  back among the cushions.   "To_many__women_thls_par_ticular_ po-_  Bltlon would not be comfortable, and  as a.matter of fact it ls not particularly beneficial, for f,he close Interlocking  of the fingers will interfere with tha  circulation of the blood in the hands,  and if persevered in will Infallibly distort the knuckles. It Is tberefore'.very  much better to adopt the new position  which I mention, thereby obtaining  not only rest'but beautiful curves.  ��������� "The average woman," continues  Madame, "ruins her figure and adds  disfiguring lines to her face by the position she assumes when sleeping. In  the flrst place, she lies on her side,  with her head on a high pillow. And  though this has been advocated as a  cure cure for Insomnia, It is also sure  producer of wrinkles, anA tends .to  give the face a drawn expression.  "The Japanese women have skins na  tinooth as satin, and to sleep with their  heads on a pillow Is a thing unknown  to them. They merely rest their necks  upon a*, little block of wood and sleep  all night? with their heads on a level  .with their bodies.  . "The American women cuddle up In ���������  B. heap when they go to sleep, and de.*  Clare they are perfectly comfortable.  Hnd this Is what happens: Their  chests are contracted, their shoulders  rounded, their entire circulation is retarded, and the action of the heart and  lungs impaired. And In the morning  they wonder why they are not feeling  more rested.  'The woman ln need of physical  strength, the womnn anxious for a  well-rounded, 6ymn*������tiJcal form and  an anwrlnkled fnr" should learn to  He correctly whilo sleeping.'

Surely  there  would  be    a  letter     for  her  from   Itoyco;  just     tt  line   or   two,      saying   where   he   waa  arxl thnt he was  well.  But  no  lettor  came,   and  tho  flush  would fade away and thc sweet eyes  grow  moist.    She  darod  not  ask     if  Itoyco   had   written   to   his     mother,  for sinco the terrible ovonir.g he had  boon turned away from Monk Towers   his   namo   had   not   passed     tho  countesa' lips. That sho was suffering      keenly,     Irene knew,  but     the  countess  was  of  the   Spartan     type,  and     would   rather have  died     than  show a sign  of weakness.  Life at Monk Towers went on  just  oa  usual;  as  if  the hearts  of     these  two   women     were  not  aching     with  crtaseless     yearning.       The   countess  faced the world with the proud composure and self-possession, and only  by   an   increased   tenderness     toward  Iron������,     only   by an  almost inaudiblo  sigh now and again when they were  alone     in     the  great  stately rooms,  rave  a  sign   that   the  spiteful     fox, ... .. ,  Sorrow,   was   tearing  at   her     undergo  clout grow _ those roses  in  her cloak of pride and self-restraint.  'lTiua     more  than   a   week   passed,  and then a change came; the countess looked up from a letter whidh  sbe had been reading, aird said very  quietly:  "Seymour is coming down to-day,  Irei:o,"  She announced it without a trace  of rejoicing in her tone, and in tho  same breath turned to the butler  and  said:  "Tho earl is coming to-day; send  the carriage to meet the soven o'clock train, please, and tell Mrs.  Greene"���������the stewardess���������"to have  everything   ready."  Ireno started slightly, very slightly, and the look with which she had  answered Boyce's inquiry after his  brother came for a moment into her  faco. liut   when   the  countess,     a  moment   or   two   later,   askod:  "Would you liko to go and moot  Seymour,   Irono?"   slio  said  quietly.  .VI think'I would rather stay with  you,   madam."  ��������� If sho had boen asked if she would  like to go to meet Koyce, she would  almost havo sprung oft her chair.  The carriage, with its magnificent  pair of bays, and its powdered sur-!  vaiits in the Lundon livery, awnitod  the seven o'clock train, and not  only the footman, but the stutiun-  niai-ter and r.II the porters prussod  forward to receive the curl as ho  alighted   from   the   train.  "How do you do .James?" to tho  footman; ar.d stood for quite a  minute talking to tho stalionmastor  ancl asking after his wife and children; noddod pleasantly to tho porters as he-gave them two pence to  divide among them, and at last  got iri. tho carriage and was driven  to Monk Towers. Ho did not smilo  much an he leaned back against the  soft cushions, but his face grew  bland and benevolent again whon  thoy roachod the lodge, and ho pok-j  ed   his  head   out   of  tho  window   and j  self, and without a wrinkle, and his  hair brushed as smoothly as a Manchester terrier's; nnd with a filial  smile on his fair face, greeted his  mother affectionately and with profound  respect.  "I do hope I have not inconvenienced you by so short a notice,  mothor," ho suid, looking at hcr  with his head a little on one side;  "but though I have been wanting to  run down for a week past. I have  not been able to tear myself away.  A public man, dour mother, is little bettor than a slave, little better  than a slave."  Now part of this nice sentence  was truo. He had wanted to como  down to Monk Towers, but his luck  had improved during the last week,  and he could not tear himself away  ���������from   the cards.  All the time he had been spoaking  to tho countess his pale eyes had  beeu wandering to the spot where  Irene stood, and he turned to hor  when ho had finished with tho countess,  and held out  both hands.  "How well you aro looking,  Irene!" he murmured, his tliin ; lips  stretched across his face, his eyes  covering hei*, so to speak, with a  bland   and   tender  admiration.    "Ah,  London," Irene's face was without a  trace of color, "amd our London  belles do not wear their diamonds  in their eyes! You are wiBO to love  the  country   dear  Irene."  Irene put both her hands in his,  but gently drew them away from  his fervid clasp, and stole back to  her chair. After the first - glance at  his entrance she had scarcely looked  at   him.  "And what is the news?" hc aaid,  leaning against t'ho mantlo in the  attitude with which he always received a deputation. "But I suppose  you expect all the news to come  from me. Dinner, Johnson? Come  then, let us go in. I must give an  arm to each of you must I not?"  nnd with an assumption of playfulness ho lod them into the dining-  room.  At  the  I able he  did   nearly all  the  talking,   the  countosr. sitting upright  ns   it dart,     the  lKvndscmc  face      inscrutably  calm,   her-voico,   when-.she  spoko',  rising arid fulling in measured  cadence;     and    Irene sitting     almost  silent,   with   eyes  that  wore     mostly  downcast.    Now  and  again   she   raised  them,   and  once she saw  thc dark  eyes   of   the   countesn   wander      from  I tho  earl's   luck-color faco to the noblo  '��������� one  of her  dead   husband   in  the  plc-  1 ture  over   the   iniiiitlnpiecc.    It     was  a strange  look,  und it haunted   Irene  ' for  hours  afterward.  I     Toward      tho     close   of   the     meal,  when   dessert   had   linen   served,      unci  ; the   attendants   hud   departed.      Seymour fixed  his  eye on his  plate  and  ! said:  ' "I am afraid, my dear mother,  you have heard this dreadful news  about Rovce. It is terrible, terrible."  "I have heard it," said the countess slowly, and with hcr eyes fixed  just above her head.'  "My heart bleeds for you!"  sard Soymoyr with a deep sigh.  "We always  "But���������but Royce ls not a gambler. "T think sho would bo quieter if I  lie has not touched a card for lot her go for a spin," said irono.  months prst, and will never do no j "I will take her to tho cottago. You  again.    He  told   mo so!" need   not   come.    I   will   join   you   on  "Ho told you so," murmured Sey-1 tho road at tho end of the com-  uiour,     turning    a    sad and  pitying   mon."  smilo upon hcr. "My poor Irene! Sho did not wait for his assent  But this last disgrace! Dismissed to thi.s proposal, but let her horso  from the service!  What is to bo said   have its  head  and bounded off.

You do not  know   all "  Sho could get no further, and, rising suddenly,  glided  from tho room.  As nlie said, the animal only  wan toil a gallop, and consented to  bo pulled up at tiie cottago without  any trouble.  Irene lilted thc latch of tho littlo  wooden   galo     with   her   whiphandlo.  The    countess     glanced  after     hcr   and  riding  up  tho path,  knocked at  calmly;  then  as  sho roso  to     follow | tho  newly-painted  groon   door,  she said: I     It  was  opened after  a  momont  or  "You havo askol, Seymour, what  i.s to be said or done, 'i'he answer  is nothing.

Seymour's face flushed transiently,  and his palo oyes gleamed; thou ho  lowered  them.  "It was the only courso opon to  him." ho said, "the orjly courso.  And, my door mother, I think I  shall best show my respect for your  great sorrow���������a sorrow I share with  you, believe mo���������by honceforth refraining from mentioning his namo  Thoro is always  hope,  oven for  two by a middle.aged woman with  a pulo and caroworn face, which  lighted and brightened at tho sight  of Irono.

LARGE  VS.   SMALL  COWS.  A question much discussed by tho  advocates of tho different broods, for  instance Jersoys aaid Holstcins, is  whethor as a general rule largo'cows  pay better than small ones. Of  courso thore are many things to  tal.o_ into consideration in determining such questions. The large cow  io almost always the heaviest feeder  though there arc exceptions. About  tho fairest method is to compute the  cost of producing 100 pounds of  buttor   fat  in  each   case.  There have boen at least two fair  tests of this problem. One was tho  Columbian Dairy test conducted at  the world's fair in 1893. There wero  three groujis���������light, modium and  heavy. In each group was a Jersey,  a Guornsoy and a Shorthorn, thoso  in the light group being very small  for the breed and those in tho  heavy  group  large.  Tho table shows that the yield of  both milk and fat was in favor of  the large* cows;' that the yiold ��������� per  i;000 pounds of live, weight;was  with the small cows, that the cost  of food was greater for the " largo  cows, and that the cost of producing 1O0 pounds of butter fat was  slightly less with the large cows,  being $17.42 for the heavy class,  $17.79 for tho medium, and .$17.93  for the small ones.  The second series of experiments  wero conducted in Germany. Bach  lasted four weeks, the second: beginning seventy days after the close of  tho-flrst, tho third a year after the  beginning of the first. Thirty good  milkers wore separated into two  lots of fifteen cows each according  to weight. Feed and caro were identical, and none werc-brod aftor the  experiments began. , Tho average  weight of the light cows was 979  pounds and of the heavy ones 1,203  pounds.  Tho conclusions from these experiments are:  1. Tho milk of the small cows is  richer in fat than that of tho largo  ones.  Largo     cows     eat      a     g'roater  charge of a separator creamery and  makes only as' many pounds of butter' each day as ho rocoivci pounds  of butter fat is allowing a groat  many dollars' worth of buttor fat  to  go  to   waste.  We think tho percentage of salt  given is a little too higii, although  it, of course, depends upon the  amount used. As a rule, however,  t'hc per cent, of salt seldom oxceods  four or for? and one-half, whilo it  quite often  falls  below four.  WINTER CARE OP EWES.  Success during lambing and shearing time depends largely on tho  care the ewes receive during the win-  tor months.. It will pay overy herds-  mdn to feed so as to got the*best,  results.

HARD TO INTEREST.  Capt. Rich belioves that the field'  in which ho works calls for extraordinary methods. Many consider it  ono of the most depressing in tho  wholo of England. Lancashire is tho  homo of tho cottom mill workers, a  body of men, women, and "children  who are probably less responsive to  the ordinary methods of ^missionaries than any other civilized people in tho world. They aro dull, stolid, almost entirely lacking'iii emotion." Their lives aro one continuous  round of toll under smoke laden  need difl'oront treatment. Every1 skies.

SCHOOL BILL  Able   Speech   by   Hon.    F.   J.  Fulton, Minister of Education  ���������Obstruction   Tactics of the  Opposition.  With the exception of purely rou-  t ine work, the whole of the past week  tuts been taken up in the Legislature  by the discussion of the School Act,  and the end is not yet, as the debate  on the subject was adjourned on Friday on motion of R. Hall (Victoria).  The Hon. F. J.* Fulton, Minister of  Education.* moved ou Tuesday the  'second reading of this measure in an  able speech, in which he "clearly outlined the whole progress of educational matters in the* province since  Confederation; showing the steady  increase, year by year, in the demands  which the present system was making  upon the public exchequer, and presenting forcibly both the urgent need  for radical -reform *iti this branch of  the provincial expenditure, and the  methods whereby the Government  proposed to effect the desired result  without in auy way impairing the  efficiency of a system of which all  Biitish Columbians were justly proud.  One of the points most strongly insisted upon by the Minister of Education was the astonishing disproportion  in tlie rate of increase of expenditure  l.etween education and that of other  public services. Illustn;timr this point  Mr. Fulton referred to the estimates  for roads, streets and bridges, $218,-  000, or a decrease of nearly two and a  half times, while in education it was  over $440,000, a large increase. The  impression made on the House hy  these figures was very evident, even  tlie opponents of the Government!  being forced to admit that, while tlie  importance of a goo.d educational system was not to be denied, it was  absurd that such a system should  absorb nearly double the amount of  revenue expended in the much more  important public work of developing  the country.  Mr. John Olivet (Delta) was on his  feet almost before the Minister of  Education had sat down, and informed  the . House that he considered the  indefensible.  until on the resumption of the debate  on the following day (Wednesday),  Munro (Chilliwack)'and Murphy (Cariboo) followed suit on practically the  same lines, echoing the member for  Delta's sneer at the Government's  "contemptible desire to make both  ends meet." and urging borrowing, or  any other form of retrenchment���������not  suggesting any kind���������sooner than interference with the present system,  which would render it impossible for  tho poorer districts to maintain the  standard of education.  Tlie Premier speaking on the same  day, scored Mr. Oliver for misrepresenting the hill as a blow at the school  system, and fur his incapacity to look  at the question from any point of view  outside his own riding. He recommended honorable members to study  the bill more carefully, as thereseeuaed  to be some strange mis-apprehension  as to its provisions.  Mr. W. J. Bowser, ' in a slashing  speech on Thursday,, made'a heavy  point in favor of the bill when he  showed that the three lower Fraser  rural municipalities (including Delta  and Chilliwack) had only made a total  contribution iu taxes last year to the  provincial treasury of $23,000, while  they had drawn for education alone  the large sum of $09,000, without  counting the expenditure on school  buildings and maintenance. Mr. Bowser also com men ted very severely upon  the lack of public "spirit shown by  these wealthy farmers, who.represent-  ing a district whose per capita wealth  was greater than in any other province  of Canada, attempted to evade their  just share of the public burdens.  At this point Mr. Bowser produced  some startling figures in support of  liis statements, showing the enviable  position in regard to worldly goods-  occupied by the lower Fraser members.  The Delta and Chilliwack representatives were so much moved by these  gratifying disclosures that Mr. Munro  got up and said that the trouble was  not that they could not meet, their  responsibilities,. but -that they would  not. meet them, and hence the standard of education would he impaired.  Mr. Bowser said that was just the  point he was making against gentlemen   on   the   Opposition  side of   the  weeks ago, were rending the air with I  their denunciations of the Government for increased taxation, and yet  are now urging a still further increase  of that same taxation, and a borrowing policy���������with all its attendant burdens���������at the hack of it. Nothing could  more clearly emphasize the weakness  of the Opposition ranks than their extraordinary change of front on what  is, after all, mainly a fiscal question.  Yet it cannot be denied that the  Opposition have done the country  good service by this obstruction policy.  The public have gained a far clearer  conception of the methods and objects  comprised in this bill than was the  case when it was first brought down.  The result is that many who, at the  first, were vehemently hostile to it,  "  It  Arrowhead News.  (From Our Own Correspondent.)  Once again Arrowhead is as it should  be. Everybody happy.

On the contrary, fully adequate arrangements  are made for their relief, while the  financial burden of this1 necessary  measure of'retrenchment falls where  iti can easiest he borne���������on the big  cities. For example Vancouver loses  over $12,000 by the bill's passage." It  is, in short, as pointed out in an able  speech oo Thursday by Mr. Parker  Williams, Socialist (Newcastle) simply  a measure of taxation directed to  making those who have hitherto taken  all and given little or nothing in return, hear their fair share of the  province's burdens". It is in no sense  an attack upon the schools, whose  high standard of efficiency it aims at  maintaining unimpaired; and the public, thanks-to the senseless course of  obstruction, abuse, and ill-digested  financial schemes instituted by the  Opposition, are now re-assured as to  the true nature of tlie bill.  ���������The measure ,will, of course, pass;  although there is no doubt that there  will be some alterations in commit)ee,  with a view of absolutely securing the  equitab'e distribution of all provisions  imposed. r-  An unpleasant incident in connection with .the debate , on this bill  occurred on Thursday! "Sixpence  from Saanich" was speaking against  the measure and, after roundly abusing the Government, suddenly pointed  a denunciatory finger at.them, nnd  House; they didn't want to meet their ] exclaimed in dramatic accents, "Fa-  responsibilities. As for the member', ther, forgive tliem, for they know not  for Delta, he would read them a speech   what they do."  delivered by that gentleman on thei Then he satdown���������without applause,  school bill of 1901���������which Mr. Oliver Even the Opposition could not stomach  now held to be so perfect���������in which | so rank a piece of blasphemy. The  that gentleman  had   prophesied blue I incident is merely mentioned here as a  measure absolutely indefensible. He  tlien proceeded to criticise it, and did  fairly well until he opened up on the  financial side of tlie question. Here  he gave the House a considerable surprise by insisting that the present  system should be left as it is, and that,  if the Government wanted the money,  they could go and borrow it or raise it  by direct taxation.  This, coming from the member for  Delta, who has heen holding anti-tax  meetings throughout his riding for  months past, and who brought before  tbe lute Assessment Commission the  most blood-curdling tale of woe of all  the lamentations that body had to  listen to, not unnaturally excited considerable astonishment, mingled with  much amusement at the honorable  gentleman's capacity for talking on  both sides of a financial question ; but  his attitude  was  not taken seriously  ruin as a result of the passage of the  1001 measure.  Mr. Oliver rose hurriedly and' ex-  plained_tbat .he took the same stand  then that hellid now. "  Mr. Bowser said he was aware of that  fact, (laughter). The member for  Vancouver finished by a severe criticism of the course of borrowing recommended by the Opposition.  Mr. Mclnnes (Alberni) who spoke  after Mr. Bowser, made a few waim  personal remarks about the Vancouver  member, the bill, and the Government  in general. Then he, too, fell in line  and proceeded to.urge the Government  to raise the money they required by  direct taxation.  It would be useless' waste of time to  mention the many speakers who followed. The debate has become, on the  part of the Opposition, simply a case  of obstruction. In their eagerness to  this end, they have forgotten all consistency and are presenting the astonished country with the spectacle of a  number  of  gentlemen   who,   a   few  specimen of Liberal oratory in the  mouths of the more "advanced tli inkers" of that party.

Emperor Menelik, the dusky ruler  of Abyssinia, has issued an edict  prohibiting tho importation of alcoholic drinks into his ompirc.Frcnch  wines and German beer bave, he  says, found their way to his Court.  He has watched their effects, and  has come to the conclusion that if  he does not put a stop to the drinking, that is going on his empire will  soon fall a prey to other nations.  The . Emperor has no objection to  European arts and sciences; but he  sets his face against European poison, and declares that ho will punish  importers of * alcoholic liquors by  forcing tho stuff down their throats  until they die. In the preamble to  his edict he says, that drunkenness  is pernicious, enfoetjles* .a- r,ace, and  destroys the body" and n^nd.^ He desires his people to remain1*, strong,  healthy. Independent,-.- -and, as a  means to this end," prohibits alcoholic drinks in every part of his  domains.  MIGHT HAVE SAVED IT.  A Lot of Trouble From Too Much  Starchy Food.  A little boy of eight .years whose  parents did not feed hint on tho  rigiit kind of food, was always nervous and suirered from a weak condition of tho stoniuch and bowels.  Finally he was taken down with  appewdicitis and aftor the operation,  the doctor, knowing that his intestinal digestion was very weak, put  him/on Grape-Nuts twice a day.    ... .  He rapidly recovered and about  two months thereafter, his Father  states, "He has grown to be strong,  muscular, and sleeps soundly, weighs  62 pounds, and his whole system is  in a: fine condition of health."  Name given by Tostum Co., "Battle  Creek,  Mich.  It is plain thut if he had been put  on Grape-Nuts at an earlier period  in' his life, and kept from the uso  .of foods that he could not digest,  he never would have had'appendicit-  is. 'Iliat disease is caused by undigested food decaying in the stomach  and bowels, causing irritation and  making for thc growth of all kinds  of microbes, setting up a diseased  condition which is the active causo  of appendicitis, and this is nvoro  marked with people who do not properly digest white brer.d.'  Grape-Nuts is math* of the selected  parts of wheat and barley ancl by  thc peculiar processes of thc cooking  at the factory, ull of the starch is  turned into sugar ready for immediate digestion and the more perfect  nourishment of all parts of tho  body particularly the brain and  nerve centres.

"Oh, that will be all right." said  Mr. Good. "Harold can act as  dining-room waiter, Millie can bo  maid of all work, and you can be  cook. You know you are a good  one.

That word is 'No.' You can look  thc alphabet over and you won't find  any other combination of vowel and  consonant characters that will11 form  a'word.     The  nearest   approach     is  Ab,' which by straining a point  might bo considered nn abbreviation  of ���������Abraham,' or 'Hi,' which might  answer   ns   short   for   'Hiram.'     But  No,' one of the .shortest words in  tho language, is the only bona fide  word formed in the arrangement of  tho alphabet's twenty-six characters."   f   SASHES   FOR  SAILORS.  A Frenchman, M. Challeat, has en-  vontod a new sash, which he thinks  will keep anyone who wears it from  drowning. The wonderful article is  mado of indiarubbcr, but inside it  is placed a little box containing a  certain quantity of one of the compounds of calcium. Wlien the sash  comes in contact with the sea the  calcium compound decomposes, and  produces a quantity of gas sufficient  to inflate tho sash and preserve its  wearer from death by drowning. Experiments have been made with this  now idea, and so far they have been  satisfactory.   *   CALIFORNIA  EXCURSIONS.
