The  game was a very .fair exhibition of  football and every player seemed bent  on  getting  there.   Notably amongst  those   who  played a. good game are  Rev. Thos. Rodgers, C. B.

It is reported that a well known  Liberal will btaud in opposition to  Oliver, and will perhaps receive the  support of the Conseivatives, in view  of his emphatic stand against the  educational clauses of the autonomy  bills.  While Oliver's majoiity of-1,000at  the fall election makes his defeat difficult, it is pointed out by Dr. II. 1.  Mclnnis, of Edmonton, who is here,  that the Edmonton disttiet may be  tinned against the government on  this issue of educational fieedom. He  sajs significantly:  "As  laid_ down   in   the autonomy  bills the .educational-clauses are pihn-  nrily and radically wvongiiA The only  class who leally want separate'sehools  is. less   than   one-half of ftho]'Roman  Catholic population of the Teriitqiies.

The peojjle of the west will never  rest until they get provincial autonomy on the same terms as thc older  provinces.

Throughout   Ontario,  Quebec    and  New Brunswick, the ministers of the  various denominations spoke Sunday  with much emphasis on  the incident,  aud declared tha't the time had arrived  when the country must rise and  protest against an Italian prelate coming  to Canada and attempting to interfere  in the administration of the country.  The bitterness has become so intense  over this   feature   of  recent political  developments  as  to entirely obscure  the merits of the autonomy bills.  our men are now getting in form.  With the material to hand, and given  a little more-- preliminary practice,  Kamloops is liable to run up against  things the wrong side out.

A letter was received inviting  the   team   to   play   Kelowna on May  31th, expenses   being paid,  and   suggesting a plan for forming a league,  the   delegates   to   meet at   Sicamous  shortly.

Theie _is_somc_,taIk_ of  finds  no   echo   in   the Liberal press  which views with something akin to  alarm even the remote possibility of 11  turn o������fortune which would strengthen the government at home.  The Chauvinistic organs, however,  are tilled wilh long articles discussing  Admiral Rojestvensky's chase, but  they are all based on the theory that  the whole; squadron has reached the  China sea. The Novoe Vreyma highly  commends the admiral for having  safely accomplished, the difficult feat  of bringing the squadion through, declaring the die is now cast.  "Japan," says the Bourse Gazette,  "now stands to lose (he mastery of the  sea, together with the fruits of hei  successes on land." 1  Other papeis express doubt as to  whether a sea fight is imminent, ex  pressing the opinion that Rojestvensky is likely to await Rear-Admiral  Nebogaloff and that Admii.il Togo  will retire close to his base befoi e  accepting a battle.  Stiictordeis have been issued to the  ollieers on duty at the admiralty nol  to   make   public   any   poition of. the  long leport which ai lived heie yesteiday from Singapore.

'���������And you really lovo mc, .loan'?"  1 murmured, hardly believing my  ears.  "More than my life," she replied  passionately.  As in a dream 1 gawd into the  beautiful eyes of .loan Ainslie,  whilst I held ber tightly in iny urms.  We stood in the oltl garden whicli  surrounded the home of my love in  the little country lown of Krrtiiglon.  ���������loan was0 an orphan and, with tlio  exception of nn oltl nurse, she lived  alone. -She sometimes spoke of hor  brother. .lack Ainslie, who had long  ago gone to Australia, and hntl  never since been heard of, but, otherwise, she had no living rotative.  I met .loan at a garden purty almost directly after I went to livo at  Errington, ancl straightway I fell  in love with hor. Now, sis months  afterwards, I had asked hot- to  marry me. and hcr reply was still  sounding, like tho music of the fairies,   in  my  ear.  "Allan, I have a little confession  to make to you," said Joan during  the evening. .She nestled closer to  mo and hid hcr face against" my  shoulder  as  she  spoke.  ."���������Kow terrible," I cried with a  laugh. "Say on, and I will consider  the case."  "You���������you  aro not the.   first   man  whom     I    promised    to "       She  paused, and . her liands clutched  nervously at  each  other.  "���������Ha!-Then there is another?" I  cried in pseudo-dramatic style.  Joan seemed glad that I was only  amused, and then told mc that two  years ago, whon she was only eighteen years of age, she had agreed to  marry a visitor froni London. liis  name" wns Jack Oat-stairs, and he  left Krrington promising to write to  her. Tliis ho did, but eventually,  went to South Africa, since when  Joan had not, hcavd anything from  him.  "And what was my rival like?" I  questioned.  "Oh, not your rival, dear," she  murmured. "I did not really lovo  him; it was but a girlish infatuation  which I got over almost directly  after Mr.   Carstairs loft Errington."  ������������������But what was lie like''." I repeated.  "Well, not quite so tall as you,  nor so good-looking, and he had  a beard. Ugh! I'm. glad you haven't  got a beard, Allan." Joan stopped  and blushed violently, and after a  little while*'sh'o made me .understand  why she preferred clean-shaven faces.  Time went on, and Joan and I  lived in the littlo earthly paradise  that wo hacV-constriictcd, until, as in  olden  time,   the serpent  entered.  Although I had laughed away tlio  story of Jack Carstairs, yet I could  not get rid of an absurd, jealous  feeling that clung to mo. By dog-roes  1 began to hate this man whom I  had never met, and whom I thought  I never should.  It was one evening about nine  months after our engagement that I  climbed into Joan's garden ovor the  fence in my usual manner, for it  saved going round to tho gate. Suddenly I caught sight of a figure  striding up the path. In astonishment I paused, and there came a  wild, jealous tug at ray heartstrings.  It was Jack,Carstairs.  There he was, just as Joan had  described     him. Slightly     shorter  than I was, wearing a beard, and  bronzed, presumably by the South  African sun.  The door was opon, and, without  knocking, ho deliberately entered.  From where I stood I could see Joan  through the open window. I saw  her spring to her feet as hor visitor  entered, for a moment they gazed  at one another encortainly.  "Jack!"  "ilrianl  I heard thoir voices distinctly, antl  then���������then ihey were clasped in each  other's arms.  For a moment, all wont dark  around inc. whilst a great pain  .���������wemed to tear my heart asunder.  Again 1 looked, end he was kissing  her. Then, with a smothered groan.  1 burst from thc garden and rushed  mati'.y away over thc Common, whither I knew  not,  nor  en red.  When 1 returned to my senses  darkness had settled down over the  land. T was striding rapidly along  ih-.' hitjh road leading into Errington. A little way ahead of me  through the trees I could see. the  light in Joan's house, and towards  this point I hurried, a dull rage  burning in me, and a roti glare seeming to burn before my  eyes.  I entered into tho garden and then  1 caught sight of Joan standing  clone on thc lawn. The rage within  me burst forth into a relentless fury,  and, hastening up to her I seized her  harshly by the arm.  "So your lover has gone?" I almost shouted.  She gazed at me in terror, and  tried to shrink away from mo, but  I held her firmly.  "This is how you show your lovo  for me. is it?" I said hoarsely. My  grip was tightening on her arm so  that she winced with pain, but in  rny  blind  rage I saw  nothing.  Then, os I looked into her beautiful eyes and thought of them gazing  tip at another as they gazed up at  ine, and thought of hor rod lips  prcssod against his. my jealous rage  became so strong that I threw her  from mc. and turned and rushed into  the darkness.  1 went straightway to my rooms,  packed a small handbag, and, telling my landlady I should not be  back for a tow days, 1 rushed to the  station and booked to King's Cross..  The whole of tha timo I was practically bereft of my Aenrcs-  When I alighted from tho train in  London, it was mv intention to proceed to Haxoll's,'but as I left thc  terminus and crossed tho entrance  drive thoro was a sudden crash���������and  then darkness.  When I recovered my senses I was  in the hospital. They told me 1  had been there nearly a fortnight.  1 hail been knocked down by tt cab,  and the fall had brought on concussion of  the brain.  ".It has been a very near thing,"  said tho nurse. "Once or twice wo  thought, you  wore gono."  And when 1 was alono, I said to  myself. "Woultl to Heaven that 1  hod died." But I lived on, siclc at  heart, for there seemed nothing to  livo  for  now.  As soon as wns possiblo I left the  hospital nnd wont to Eastbourne to  recoup my health. On the second  dny of my stay I was thunderstruck  Iiy observing what .1 thought, to bo  Joan's figure amongst tho pronnui-  adot-s, but after a while I assured  myself that J must havo been mistaken.  How T longed to sco my lost love  again, to fold her in my arms and  cull her mine. But my he.irt ached  whon I thought of all that had boon,  of how sho had proved faithless to  :tno.  When I had fully recovered my  senses, nil my sudden passion had  left mo, with the exception of a  dull hatred in my heart for the sup-  planter, of my affections. Gradually  it conquered mo until I made up my,  mind that I would follow him and  never leave him until I hatl killed  him.  I. sat on tho front pondering on  this, and thon I saw what confirmed  my suspicion of the previous day. I  saw Joan, and with hor was Jack  Carstairs.  Great Heaven, tho whole world  reeled round mc for a moment, nnd  then, -with a bitter hatred gnawing  at. mo, I calmly Rat and watched  them pass. Thoy did not sec me, although T sat quite closo to thorn.  Joan looked palo, and my heart beat  with unwonted rapidity as I gazed  at her groat pensive eyes. Perhaps  she repented hor step, but he lookod  happy enough'.      c  Tlien I got up and walked in an  opposite direction. To those few  who do not know Eastbourne I  would say, that if one goes away  past tho Wish Tower up on to tho  side of Boachy Head lie- will be at  homo with solitude.  Thither I. wended myAvay. and lay  down amongst tho furze bushes..-.

An   Examination   by    the Officials  of the Ontario  Board  of  Health.  In describing tho result of experiments ho made with foods anil medicines to determine their possible effect on public health, Ilr. G. G. Nn-  smitb, of the Ontario Board oi  Health, addressed tho Canadian  Household Economic Association,  dealing with canned goods, ns follows, at. tho Normal School Theatre:  An examination of tho various  brands of canned vegetables, fruits  and jams manufactured in Ontario  Was mado last winter in tha laboratory of tho Provincial Board of  Health to find out, whether, as it is  often stated, poisonous motals aro  present, whether adulterants or preservatives nro used, and whether  there existed any renson at all tor  the somewhat prevalent opinion that  the continued use of canned goods is  injurious to health.  Canned gootls may bo harmful on  account of tho presence of metallic  saltH, preservatives, plotmaincs,' or  adulterants. Exact data as to tho effect of metallic salts in minute traces aro quito wanting. Tt is woll  known, however, i.hat small quantities of lead, copper, zinc, tin and  arsenic act poisouously, and these  arc- (ho only ones likely to bo met  with   in   canned   foods.  Copper, for instance, might be derived from tho vessels in which tho  food is boiled previous to cunning:  if the copper is perfectly bright there  is littlo danger, but if it is allowed  to-tarnish soluble copper carbonate,  hydrate or verdegris might form and  outer into tho material boiled. Food  should novor bo left in contact wilh  copper vessels, since oxidation takes  place at tlio surface of contact and  these  compounds  form.  HOW Lir.AIJ   COMliS.  Lead might come from the load  pipe conducting thc witter used or  from tlio solder of the cans. There  is abundant evidence of tho cumulative notion of lead in tho human  system when takon in small doses;  such. for instance, as tho chronic  load poisoning of painters, workmen  in lead factories, from hair dyes and  cosmetics and moro e.'.pecially  through drinking water, where the  latter is soft and therefore a good  solvent   of  lead.  Zinc poisoning is :*are: in fact zinc  sulphate in smnll dose)* is used as a  nerve tonic. Arsenic, which might  como from sugar prepared with impure sulphuric acid, which often contains thiti material, is "also genorally  ptvscribed as a nerve tonic. It is  not. likely to bc in.-t with. Cases  of tin  poisoning arc rare.  Preservatives are seldom usod apparently in rammd vegetables which  can bc "rather rougltly linn.Uoil and  sterilized at high temperatures.  Where tho shape and tcxtutv of tho  substance must bc 1-opt, however, as  in preserved or canned fruits, and  where it docs not do to boil them  much, preservatives .ire very opt to  be used in order to prevent bacterial  growth.  UNITED  STATES  CASE.  The widespread use of these coin-  pounds was suggested by a caso in  tho United States, in which a preserving lluid had boen added to milk,  first by the farmer, then by the collector "to whom he sold it, thirdiy  by the wholesale dealer, and lastly  by tho retailer. Tho facts wero developed by -.-.n investigation occasioned by the iilne.-s of children who  drank tho doctorod milk. The United States Agricultural Department  report on (LVD. preservative preparations is unfavorable. Ho tasteless food preservative has os yet  bcon suggested which is entirely non-  poisonous and which does no* have  a marked influence on digesibm. ever  when taken In relatively small doses. N'othins should be added to  food which is tonic, in it*elf or h.-  te-rfefs in the slighter.! wiih the  process   of  direst ion.     Of  course   the  -proserva U vo���������pcj-itl e_a J_WHYs__.sa V they_  aro harmless, hut, science gives their  statements  nnqunlilied   denials.  The absence of preservatives is often ai, indication of wholesome food,  cleanlv method* of preparation, etc,  while then- presence ofw-n indicates  a slovenly, unclean nnd cuvless method tu' preparation, which tbey endeavor to cover bv these compounds.  Ptomaines nf- substances allied t.o  tho vegetable alkaloid, such a.s caffeine, strychnine and the like, and  are. producod in dead plant, nnd animal matter by bacteria. They are  often very like those poisons produced in llvinar animals by bacteria,  such as diphtheria toxin or typho  toxin,   for  instance.  They are more commonly found in  canned oysters, bad sausage, shellfish (tho most harmful), canned  moats, lish, milk, cheese, anrl more  rarely  in   vegetables liko  peas.  Adulterants arc .seldom dangerous;  they merely 'ind icn t.o that, whon you  buy cheap raspberry jam at. ten cents  a pound you got, two cents' worth of  raspberries ar.d a lot of applo pulp,  whereas if you pay twenty or twenty-five cents for a pound you get  nil raspberries. Thus it is" plainly  cheaper lo buy good raspberries and  a,|d your  own  apple sauce.  Of nine brands of canned peas examined in our Inborn.lories only one  showed traces of copper, and four  showed traces of zinc. Two were  thicken of I   wilh   :: lurch.  Of four bra '". of tomatoes examined, three showed traces of zinc,  and nil four  truces or copper.  Traces of ���������/.inc. were found in only  niw of three brands of corn. Threo  brands of mimed raspberries, nil ar-  lilirbill.v colored, gave traces of zinc  mul I wo ga.v������ reactions for tin.  Thno hr.mils of striiwhnrries gave  truces of zinc, wliile two yielded of  tin. Two brands of plums gave  slight  relictions  for  tin.  Although enough specimens CJii in  ull) lune not been examined to draw  general conclusions from, still it  may ho said that so far as ,theso results go motals aro not present i.t  at all dangerous amounts.  SOME  OF TfTF.  JAMS.  Nine specimens of cheap jams woro  examined, and were without exception "mado up." In every case a  ���������'filler*' of applo pulp had beon added. Tho jars variously labelled  "true fruit" and absolutely pure  had in some cases but a .small fraction of genuine fruit present, the  bit lanco consisting of "tiller." coloring, arlillcinl flavoring and sugar.  One manufacturer used tho stune coloring for his raspberries, strawberries, and black currants, merely  varying tho quantity of each.  Although tho investigation into  the uso of preservatives has not boon  yot mndo here, wo know that such  are usod b.v somo Ontario canning  establishments. Tho uso of preservatives in canneries is highly reprehensible.  The tin can is undeniably a cheap  unbreakable and convenient package  for goods, and - ono readily scaled  airtight. ' There'is no doubt at all.  however, that fruit packed in cans  is inferior in flavor to tho samo  fruit packed in jars. A caso recently came under my observation where  part of a pack of strawberries was  scaled in tins, and part in glass  jars. Thc cans nearly nil became  tainted and smollcd bad, though bacteria wero not present. Tho other  half, packed in jars, were perfectly  sound, lasted well and had no foreign odor. Thc only way we could  account for tho change was tho possible catalytic action of tho metallic,  tin   on   certain   unstable  protcids.  Glass is preferable in every way, it  if- practically chemically inert, eliminates all danger from metals (from  lho can at least) and allows tho purchaser to moo what he is buying. It  i.s bolter to use glass sterilized by  heat (eliminating preservatives')' and  seal iho .surface of thc jam with  para'iu, whioh prevents organisms,  which may bo sucked through thc  seal,   from  growing  on   tho sui faco.

Narrow Escape From. Boing Buried  Alive.  Ono of thc most terrible ordeals a  human being has ever been culled  upon to go through was that endured  by  Warder     Thomas   Kelly  in  _the__ urison_ hospital    in    Araurilitis.  Kelly, v.ho arrived in~riIo7ulon"Eng=~  land, the other day, wus for six  du\ s iu a death-like trance, and  only returned to active lifo when  actually   in   the   mortuary.  A Canadian, forty-nine years of  age, *.*. iio has spent fourteen years in  the navy. Kelly b;oks physically a  wreCk, und gives an impression of  extreme  bloodlosshoss.  "t arrived at .Mauritius soven  mouths ago as boatswin on a steamer, and .was sent ashore through ill-  heulth." ho said. -'Stranded on tho  island.

LEATHER FROM THE SEA  MANY     VARIETIES    OBTAINED  FROM FISH.  Sharks    Furnish    Sword   Grips  ���������  Slurgeon BiiJb: Kako Good  Laces.  A great deal of good leather comes  out of tho sen���������not tho kind of leather that comes from tho backs of  walrus, seal and otter; everybody  knows about that. Thero is a  queer leather which comes from t ho  bodies of  fish.  An extremely fino quality of green  leather intulo in Turkey is manufactured from tho skin of an m-ly lish  called the angel Ash. This is it kind  of shnrk*-a shark with thick wing-  like fins that have earned for him  the name of angel, though bo doesn't  look a bit liko nn ongol, but rather  tho  opposite.  Tho sword, grips of the ollieers of  the German army nro made from  shark leather, too. Thoy oro beautiful in pattern, being marked with  dark, diamond-shaped figuics. The  skin conios from a North Sea shark  ke-iwn  as the diamond shark.  Gorman leather manufacturers havo  tried to produce a leather from nnir  mal hides , that shall supplant J.hi's  skin, but in vain. Unlike tmiiual  leather,   fish ..leather  is  absolutely  "IMl'RLiVIOUS TO  WATER.  ami never gots soggy from dampness. Therefore it is ideal for  sword grips, as, no matter how much  tho hand may perspire, the grip remains hard and dry.  Tbo slurgeon, despite his lumpy armor, furnishes a valuable and attractive, leather. When tho bony  plates aro taken off thoir pattern remains on the skin, just as tho pat-  torn of alligator scales remain on  alligator leather. Tho 3'acitic coast  sturgeon and tho .sturgeon of the  Great Lakes produco a tough leather that is used io make lacos for  joining leather bolting for machinery, and the lacos often outwear tho  belting.  Tho strange garfish, an American  fresh wator fish with long-toothed  jaws like thoso of tlic crocodile, has  a skin that can bo polished smooth  until it has a finish liko ivory. Tt  makes beautiful jewel caskets and  picture , frannes.  Tho .skin of lhe garfish used to bc  converted into armor by some tribes  of American savages. Tho hide Is so  tough and hard that it makes a  breastplate than can turn a knife or  spear. Some of tho finer specimens  that hove boon found aro hard  enough to turn even a blow from a.  ���������tomahawk.  Thc savages who wore that fish  armor also used to wear a fish helmet. Tt was made from tho skin  of thc pricklv porcupine flsh, and besides protecting tbo wearer's head it  was used as o weapon of offence. Thc  warriors butted, thoir enemies with  it. nnd as it had hundreds of iron-  like spikes, tho operation was eminently painful   to  THE OBJECT  OF  ATTACK.  In Gloucester tho ''king town" of  fish, tho hiwnhle cotl has boon utilized with success for making leather  for shoos and gloves. Tn Egypt mon  walk on sandals made from tho  skins of Ked Sea fish. In Russia  certain peasant costumes arc beautifully trimmed with tho skins of a  fino food fish, thc turbot. Bookbinders in Europe oro binding books  with eclskin.  Tho eclskin serves another and less  pleasant purposo. 'It is braided into whips. Tho writer was the unhappy member of a European private school where one' of thoso eclskin whips was a prominent instrument of discipline, and ho has never  cared for eels since then.  Along the big salmon rivers of Siberia the natives often wear brilliant leather garments dyed rod and  yellow. They are mado from salmon  skins.  Tn Alaska beautiful waterproof  bags arc made from all sorts of  fishskins.  Tho queerest, use is that to which  the inlost ims of tho seal ion are put.  Thoy_aro slit antl stitched together  to i"or~m-_lioodod coats,' "which���������anr  supoi'ior to Tndia rubber us waterproof  garments.  Walrus intestines aro mado into  sails for boats by the Esquimaux of  North-Western   America.  Even thc frog does not escape.  Several factories in Franco, ami a  few in America, niuko card cases ond  other smnll leather articles from his  skin.  TO. A VOID  At'T'ENDTCITIS.

ELECTJUC  SHOCK.  Ono of tho now aiul not uncommon  dangers of modern lifo is that of  getting in lho way of a powerful  current of electricity and receiving  lho entire discharge through tho  body. Tho effects of such a discharge vary, of course, with tho  strength of the current: thoro may  bo simply a sharp muscular contraction, accompanied by thc familiar,  disagrecablo sensation ot an electric  shock: theso contractions may bo repented several times after tho cur-  rout has ceased, constituting truo  convulsions, or there may bo a persistent continued muscular contraction; there may bo suspended respiration while tho heart continues to  beat; both heart and respiration may  cense, in which caso death will speedily follow unless instant medical relief is at hand; or in still other cases,  death may bo instantaneous.  The first caro is, of course, to free  tho person froim contact with the  livo wire, and hero groat caution is  necessary, or tho giver of assistance may share tho fate of tho ono  ho is trying to help. Ho must himself be insulated beforo touching tho  victim's body, if the latter is still  within tho path of tho current, and  thi.s is especially important if tbo  accident has happened out-of-doors  on a wot dny. Caro should bo takon-  also not to lot any part of lho body  olher than tho hands, or rather ono  hnnd,  (ouch (ho electrified person.  Tt may not bo possible to pull tbo  sufferer nway from thc source of electricity, antl if tiot it will bc necessary lo mako a -short circuit by  dropping a stilt wiro or a metal tool  of nny kind over tho livo wire, or  cutting  tho  wiro.  Insulation is best obtained by rubber bools anil gloves, but in thc absence ot these, standing on a folded  coot or a woman's silk skirt and  putting on thick woollen gloves or  wrapping the hands in several folds  of silk, woollen or cotton cloth,  which,   of  course,   must bo  dry. A  dry board or several newspapers, or,  better still, both, may servo as an  emergency  insulating stool.  When lho victim has been freed  from the current he should bc placed  on tho back, with clothing loosened,  so that ho can havo plenty of fresh  air. Tn severe, casos artificial respiration will almost always bo needed,  just as it is in cases of drowning,  and an early resort i.o it may save,  a life that would otherwise inevitably bo lost. There is tittle else  thnt can be dono on the spot lor tho  sufferer, - but ho may need careful  treatment ,���������subsequently to remove  tho remote' effects of tho terrible  shock he has received.  IKXMXHXWOOOOOOOOOCOOOfl  YOUNG  FOLKS  WEAK  HEARTS.  There aro many persons, usually  city dwellers, who aro troubled with  a more or less persistent consciousness of having a heart. They cannot do anything out of tho ordinary  without being shandy reminded that  they aro doing too much. A Thanksgiving or Christinas dinner, a sudden fright, tho hearing ot bad nows,  anxiety concerning a business transaction or tho health of a friend, running to catch a train, walking in tho  teeth of a winter storm���������'these" and  many other things which do not affect a healthy body cause a weak  heart to thump and pound a terrifying tattoo against tho ribs. This,  unless iL has occurred so often as to  brtied tho contempt of familiarity,  alarms tho sulleroi-, and his imental  distress' reacts in turn upon tho  heart, which palpitates tho moro  through the incitement of fright. All  this distress is needless, for it can  bc prevented by a littlo caro and the  exercise or- common sense. It is  simply a condition of weak heart���������  not diseased heart, and tho organ  can bo toned up by exorcise just as  a weak biceps con bo strengthened by  tho same  means.  The possessor of tho weak heart is  usually one all of whoso muscles aro  flabby'l-a- tlcsk-workor_who_gocs_ _^.t_o_  his Office in a street-car, sits' all day  at his books, and rides homo in a  car at night; who does not walk tho  equivalent of a mile in a day; or  perhaps it is a woman whoso life is  passed indoors, whoso heart is irritated by tight . stays, whoso digestion' is poor, and whoso.nerves aro  strained by strong and overmuch tea  or coffeo.

It wa.s prime weather for coasting;  tho least tang wus in the air and a  thick crust on tho snow. Thc sido  hill back .of old Farmor Butler's barn  was tho placo toward which overy  boy who owned a sled made his way.  It was fearfully stoop at tlio top,  but later on struck a gcntlo inclino  antl when tho gap in tho fence was  safoly passotl a quick turn to tho  rigiit took ono down another hill for  a good quarter of a milo. But tho  route was a trillo dangerous for  novices, as thu lirst hill was set out  to peach trees. They stootl at regular dis*lanccs apart, largo, thrifty  trees and it requirod a cool ��������� head  and much oxporienco to keep from  running counter to the chosen routo,  nntl striking obstacles.  Mary Jane, tho farmer's daughter,  was especially fond of tbo sport, and  was always ready when her older  brother, George, askod hcr to const  with him. Seated ��������� in front of him  on thc big gre.cn sled, with her foot  on tho stout round, sho breathlessly  enjoyed the swift runs made and  never felt thc least bit afraid of being overturned in tho snow, for he  understood steering a sled to perfection.  Times wil bout number had STnry  June coaxed- George to allow hor to  try it alono," .but he "invariably said  "no," for hor parents had expressly  forbidden it. She was inclined to  he sol twilled ami alwuys aimed to  carry hor point in ono way or another.  "Why, my dear child." said lior  father, whilo expostulating with hor  "you could never reach tho foot of  the hill in safety. Aftor you had  left the btow of the hii! you would  lose your head���������ho blinded; and no  knowing where yon woultl fetch up.  So do not be so foolish as to undertake it somelimo whon alone, ior it  will mako you much misery, I am  suro."  But mooting with so much rpijosi-  tion only served to make Mary Jane  more anxious to know by actual experience antl she determined nt-' tho  first opportunity t.o find out if it required so much skill to steer a slod,  as George protended.  "Boys always feel so smart," sho  murmured. "Thev want to sin nil suv  perior to us girls. I shall _try it  just to show him  what I can do."  One pleasant afternoon in February Mury Jane found tho opportunity she had so long waited for. She  had helped bor mother with the Saturday's work, had baked cookies,  pared apples and clonncd the lamps;  and when it had gotten around to  4 o'clock t.ho mother had said. "Now  Mary Jano*, you have helped mo a  gtcat deal. It is pleasant out, and  yoiKcan lako Marietta for a ride on  tho sled. T will wrap hcr up well,  and you can. keep hor out for an-'  hour, as T want (o step into Mrs.  limit's for a little call. I see tho  doctor is thoro, and I havo really  neglected her for a wholo week."  So littlo Marietta wns woll bundled, and taken for a ride. Mury Jnno  kept a watch on tho roud.and when  sho saw hcr mother disiippeur into  Mrs. Hunt's side door sho started  for the hill back of the. barn,, fooling that tho time" had actually" arrived when sho could try hor skill  at steering a sled. Reaching ' tho .  brow of thc hill, sho pushed Marietta to the .front, thon taking tho roar  as her brother did. sho gave a stout  push,   and   away  they  went.  Aftor the first instant"all sense  left hcr, and the next thing she. realized she lay in hor mother's bod,  nntl how heavy and dizzy hot* head  felt! Her right chock bone ' was  bruised: thoro was it long gash over  hor right eye, and her wrists and  hands  woro  skinned.  "A narrow escape," ho was saying;  "a wonder she wasn't killed."  About quarter way down tho    hill  the" sled had swerved,   and  had    run.!  into a peach tree with such forco as  to  throw  Marietta  several   foot     to  pnc_sidc,   smash  out  the big   stout  rouiid_in_ff6nt"an"d-sond_Mary--,Iano-  full  against  the tree,  knocking     hcr  |  senseless. ���������   -  Farmer Butler "Shtl his hired ��������� men  wore foddering tho cattlo. at the lower barn and saw tho slod as it  started.

It has its enticing qualities,  howevor, has tlio pudding, niul the  average man and woman are readily  inclined lo admit that with nil its  faults thoy lovo it still. Pure and  fresh ingr.-tlionls aro the necessary  basis of a good pudding, as indeed  thoy are of all other dishes.

Very Few of Them    Get Lost   For  Any Considerable Time.  With' cars coming and going every  hour in tho day antl night, constantly shifting never more than a fow  hours in the samo place how does a  railway keep track of its 'equipment'?  How can. it over toll how many cars  it has with which to handle j������n business and whero it. can put its hands  upon  them?.  The handling of cars is systematized. This is the simple explanation  of a seemingly difficult problem.  Some ono at headquarters or division points is camping on tho trail  of every wandering bit of rolling  stock and a tremendous system of records and tracers makes it practically impossible for cars to get lost.  Tlio handling of the Northern Pacific's equipment is delegated to a separate branch of tho service the Oar  service .department at the head of  which is Ira B. Richards, formerly of  Tacona, and many years' in tho Northern Pacific employ. Mr. Richards  lias grown up with moving cars. Ho  knows them liko a book. any of  tho distinctive features of tho work  of tho Northern Fucilic car service department have been worked out under his direct ion. Few railway linos  havu boon ablo to mako such a department do more for the public and  tbo organization of fifty-live clerks  required to transact tho business of  tho department soouis to bo perfect.  Fat'lt desk has a number which appears on each bit of correspondence  originated or handled by it and  which enables a rapid distribution of  the thiitisair-Ia of letters arriving  j daily.  ��������� '  Tho Noithern   Pacillc   liailwuy     hns  nine  hundred  and   thirty   locomotives  1 moving practically day and night.  It also has nearly eight hundred passenger cars which are handled by  means of a system applying exclusively to this class of equipment tho  details of which are lookod after by  Cliief Clerk Ballion and bis forco.  But tho important task is tho handling of its 31,178 freight cars and  the '1,000 to 6,000 additional freight  cars of foreign lines constantly moving between St. Paul and Portland.  Askod  what service his  department I  performs   for    tho public   in locating!  shipments  moving  over  tho Northern  Paciiic Mr.   Richards .said:  "Wo undertake to furnish on re-  q lest complete information showing  the location of any loaded car moving on our rails. Wo tell shipper  whon it will reach its destination.  Wo find shippers consider such information valuable to thcm and a special telegraph record is maintained for  thai purposo for all cars that move  ovor  MOKE THAN  ONE  DIVISION.  "Given a car number we can instantly locate the car at any station if standing or in" what train if  moving and th'o location of such-  train regardless of the class of  freight. Also we furnish daily by  wire information concerning certain  loads to our General Agents at their  respective headquarters. Consignees'  nro advised of the location and pro-  gross  of  their shipments.  This relates however merely to  moving cars. To know what and  whore these cars are is a different  problem. Trains reaching destination instantly lose thoir identity and  tho forty j.0 sixt^y cars move iu as  many  different directions.  On  lho  top   floor  of  the headquarters    building    at    St. Paul a small  army of mon in charge of Chief Clerk  McCauloy see  to  it  that  those    cars  do  not    go  astray.   An  average    of  about    nine    hundred  reports  a  day  are  received   from  freight  conductors  and as many more from agents and  others    covering    tho    movement    gf  cars   in     thoir  charge.   These     cover  30,000   to   35,000  home  and  foreign:  cars.      A  tremendous system  of    ro-j  cords is maintained formidiblc to tho:  novice yet exceedingly simple in priri-J  ciplo by means of which it is impossible to mo ve a freight car from one  siding to another    2,000 miles away'  unless     information    roaches the  St.!  Paul office.   Forty-five books contain  tho individual car records.   These aro  novor more than a few hours"  behind  the  actual   movements   of  tlio     cars. I  Six liugo-books show thc foreign cars!  moving on Northern Pacific linos.   A-  lost  car  is  charged. against  tlio  for-]  oign line  which has ''receipted for,   it;  and such  line is hold: responsible until  i't  has     either  produced tho    car  receipt from some other lino or paid  for it.   Tho system of handling    cars  moving  on  homo tracks is so    complete that mouths have elapsed   sinco  a single car was'able  to  eludo     the:  department oven for a -brief interval.  "We receive twenty cents por    day  for cars  off  tlio  lino and .'.."ono   dollar  per  day  for cars    hold  longer    than  twenty     days,"    said   Mr.  Richards.  "We pay  foreign  linos- the samo rate  for the use of thoir cars.   This  item  alone    is   of    groat    magnitude.     It  proves    an     incentive   to  keop    cars  moving however  and  when tho question  of money enters  in other    lines  don't let us go to sleep;    Collections  last year  for   per  diem an'd    similar  items amounted to 5546,000."  "; Two   thousand-   cars    c6me to  Northern  Pacific every  day and  proximately  two  thousand  cars  sent  off  the   lino  each  day  yot  ono gats lost.   Tho tracing and chocking system has been reduced to   such  accuracy  that  ERRORS   ARE  IMPROBABLE.  Handling passenger cars and trains  is a somewhat different question. In  Mr. Richards office there is an immense board * which is apparently  covered with queer colored pegs.  Each peg represents a car. Color indicates class and the serial arrangement of the pegs a train or ntimbor  of trains. Each passenger train moving ovcr tho system and there nro  ten'���������'"North* Coast TJimited's" and  tho same number for onch of the  other overland trains constantly in  motion is shown on this board.  Every car is shown. If a car is dropped en route or picked up en route a  pog is dropped or added. 'A glance  gives a graphic picture of tho entire  passenger train situation the location of each train and its progress.  Cupplomcntc"d-bi���������an-olaborn.to���������system of reports by telegraph tho board  gives every minuto detail of the days'  passenger train 'movements. Littlo  boxes arranged J.o represent a train  and containing pegs which represent  tho cars in the train contain spocial  information     in  the form   of    report  slips.  "Mr. Richards asks: "Whnt equipment is in the Limited which left  Portland yesterday and whore is tho  train'? The operator "instantly gives  the location, the engine, coach equipment, and any fact which may throw  light upon tho trains movements.  Thousands upon thousands of car  reports como into headquarters each  week, each sifting to the proper man  and finding itsvOnal resting placo in  the proper cabinet or record.  The days when "maverick" cars  existed have passed. Cars cost too  much and loot cars are a money bur-  thcy were lost until a proper accounting is made.  tho  ap-  are  not  ,,    HOW STORIES  GROW.  Mrs. A.

SOLDIERS OF THE CZAR  HIS   LOT   IS INDEED   A   VERY  HARD ONE.  A Study in    the   Life  and    Character  of the   Russian  Private.  In hi.s ordinary, overy-day career���������  thas is, in time of peace���������the genuine  Russian soldier is an exceedingly  amiable creaturo, writes A. Fremd-  ling in tho London Speaker. Ho  seldom quarrels oven in his cups. If  anything, an over indulgenco in  vodki makes him rather grow affectionate, sometimes even tragic. In  his sober moments he is all good  nature, song, and gnioty, with nothing of tho proverbial niolchunoly of  the Slav attached to him. But on  reflection it will be soon that it is  only the Slav's extraordinary capacity for endurance that can mako tho  daily lifo of tho common soldier at  all supportable. Added to tho extreme rigor of discipline, which  makes his term of service ono long  round of kicks and thumps from tho  sergeant-major Jjfeldvobol) to tho  more senior private (diadkn), each of  whoso superiority must be acknowledged with the orthodox salute,  poor Tommy Toftsky���������as I woultl call  him, by reason of his unqualified  toughness���������is fed and housed under  conditions unthinkable to tho western mind. Pay thoro' is practically  none. In somo of the crack regiments  the private receives his ninety copecks every three months, which  works out exactly to ono farthing per  day, allowing it, however, tho. purchasing powor of ono'penny. But  out of this ho is expected to keop  himsolf in boot-blacking, ���������pipe-clay,  and other trifles in thc way of warpaint, ahd sometimes even to pay  for the making of his boots, the materials for which only are served o.ut  from the stores. His washing ho  docs himself (if any). His food, as  originally regulated for him by tho  War Office, might not be too bad  nor too sparse; but he ������������������ lias the contractor to reckon with, and so his  black,  BADLY-BAKED  RYE  BREAD  quito often has more sawdust than  meal in it. , Of this brutal mixture,  with nothing but a grain or two of  brown rock salt to flavor it and a  draught of pump-water to wash it  down with, lie manages to snatch a  hasty morning meal whilo polishing  his. boots' or.grooming his horse, to  get ready for drill or parade. The  rigors of these, by the way, aro perhaps unequalled iu any other army,  even tho Gorman. , Apart from all  else, in no other European country  is the climate so given to alternating extremes of cold and henti as it  in in Russia. Th'o far-seeing Russian  military genius avails itself of that  circumstance as a special means to  inuring its fighting material to hardships. On a winter's morning,-when  tho. frost takes grip of your 'toes as  between iron clamps, when it burns  ou the tip of your noso as a rod  coal,, and cuts through ; tho rinis of  your cars as with knives, mon on  parade are kept, standing In statuesque: lines for half ah hour or "more,  awaiting purposely-belated arrival of  the senior officer. Oh the hottest duy  in summer, again, whon tho whole  world, is a huge Turkish bath, the  soldier is kept marching and counter-marching for hours under all tho  weight of tho heaviest possiblo kit.  Happily, the catering for tho ; midday meal is beyond th'o grasp of tho  contractor's cupidity, or the poor  soldier might bo made to dine all  the year round off dead donkeys or  chopped-up old boots. Tho',, regimental, or, in-cases of isolated, detachments,, the'.'company artelsohik (steward) appointed from amongst the  men themselves, look's to thu moat  and the vegetables; and tho local  Jewish butchers and market-gardeners find it "much harder to buy over  the humble artelsohik than tho large  contractor does to smooth it out  with the colonel (polkovnik). Possibly fear of detection might be greater in the former case; for, ns it  stands with the whole world over,  the small man may not sin half so  often nor half so well. However, it  so happens that Ivan gols  at    least  ONE DECENT .MEAL  in tho day���������a-generous measure of  tho-natioiial-cabba."gc-Koup,^a-goodly_  portion of fresh beef, boned and run  up a wooden skewer, and a bowlful  of thick buckwheat gruel (kaslia)  with n round lake of incited fat in  the middle. Tho evening meal, after  a second round of drill, is v thin,  watery, insipid broth, made.of goodness knows what, with a few potatoes  thrown in. Thoro is seldom or novor  any variutlon. Tho seasons may  chango, now caps may como into being, now buttons, now facings mny  bo sprung upon bis tunic, but tho  soldier's diet docs not change.        *.  As for housing, ho is housed nnyi  how. Just at tlio .moment wo read  in the newspapers of thirty thousand  rescrvista being horded in nn open  field, awaiting mobilization. Nothing  bolter need be expected. So did Russia with some forty thousand Turkish  prisoners aftor the fall of Plevnn,  keeping thorn for a whole week penned in like sheep, the sound and tho  sick together, flinging amongst thcm  a shower of loaves pell-moll once in  tho day, by way of feeding them. Thc  imagination may bo helped a little,  as to. the cumulative elfect of the  treatment of those unhappy: Turks,  when it is added, in one line, that  the stench tour iniles around was .unbearable.: As a general rule, it might  be said that the standard of comfort  amongst the Russian people i.s lower  than what it is amongst moro western people. But concerning the  army, it is rather duo to the low  estimate, taken of the common soldier is something loss than a bond of  cattle, certainly a good deal loss  than a horse. Between the stabling  of the cavalry horso and the lodging  of ils rider there i.s a world of difference in favor of the former animal.  Up to very recently beds ami bod-  dings weio unknown q'.iauti! ies in the  Russian barrack. 'I'he soldier car-  t i-d  his  MA'ITHIvSS   AND   BLANK F.T.  on his back in tho form  of a   groat-  coat. That used to be all, except  sometimes a handful of musty straw  shaken over the hard plank. Things  aro a littlo bettor now, but that docs  not apply to soldiers on tho move,  to the manoeuvres, or to tho theatre  of war. Tho way thoy are disposed  of for llio night amongst the villagers reminds mo of a certain lady I  knew in a small town in tho south  of Ireland, who kept somo sort of a  licensed shebeen in a partition off  her kitchen, and took in lodgers on  cattlo fair days. She stootl in hor  door pocketing tho fourpenccs from  all tho drovers, thimble-riggers, and  ballad singers that camo tho way,  passing thorn all on to the loft overhead. "Whcro'll I find mo bod,  ina'am?" ono or tho other might venture to enquire, looking up to tbo  already crowded loft. "Whcro'll yo  fin' yor bod, is it!" nho would return with a contemptuous toss of  the head, at the idea of boing bothered any further, "Flow 'do 1 know'?  Go up tho ladder."  Thoro is at least ono distinguishing  trait in tho moral constitution of  tho Russian Tommy, and that is all  his own. He is tho most expert and  the most brazen-faced thief in tho  world. Ho wiil steal the applo out  of your eye while you look him  straight in the face, and will swear  a thousand oaths that ho knows  nothing whatever about it. There  is a significant saying amongst Russians: "Is this thc way to the public-  house," and its orig-in lies in tho  story of tho soldier who. on being  sin-prised by tho inmates of tho houso  where ho had lot himsolf down  through tlie chimney ono night, coolly askod whether ho was on tho  right road for the public-house.0 Soma  how, Vanka has got it into his thick  skull that he is within his rights to  pillor all ho can, provided only he  does it well. As a.matter of fact,  too, his punishment comes to him  only when he bungles and gots himself caught. A trio of Cossacks onco  captured a live fat pig, killing it on  the spot and carrying it off to  thoir own don. They woro seen to do  it;'.ancl before long tho owner caused  an official search to bo made, under  the personal direction of the hetman  or shotnilc. But all thnt could bo  found was a sick comrade lying on  his back in his great coat, with arms  folded and shapka (cap) drawn over  the face. It was tho pig; ami when  all was quiet again tho officer gave  them something  to  drink.  FORTUNE FOR A BUTTERFLY.  What   Rothschild's    Hobby   Costs  "���������.-Its-Pursuer.  Tho report that Mr. Walter Rothschild. Lord Rothschild'.?..,'elder : son,  had bought a rare butterfly from  Ecuador for S������,000 filled tho .soiiiu  of all butterfly hunters with joy.  So' far the biggest price paid for a  pair of butterflies was $225. Business  was   obviously  "looking  up."  In the interesting and valuable  museum which he has arranged just  outsido Tring Park, Mr. Rothschild  has more than a .million butterflies,  and; knows rather too much about  his subject to pay absurd prices.

Sir Ed-win   Landseer's  Great     Record���������Mr. Bryan Shook  Hands.  Ono of tho most remarkable and  most artistic of twenty-four hours'  records stands to the credit of Sir  Edwin Landseer, who had promised  a picture for tho Spring Exhibition  of tho Royal British Institution in  1815. On tho day boforo the opening ho was found standing in front  of an untouched canvas. "I shall  send that to the Institution tonight, a finished picture," ho declared to tho astonished messenger who  hatl been sent by tho Hanging Committee to sco if,tho promised picture  were ready, "and havo consequently  givon orders not to bo disturbed."  Truo to his word, Landseer put'tho  finishing touch to his canvas and  dispatched it to Pall Mall that very  evening; and as "Tho Cavalier's  Pots".it was one of tho greatest successes of. tho exhibition.  BOTH AUBER AND MOZART  performed oqunlly wonderful feats of  rapid .workmanship. Mozart was  making merry with his friends at  midnight when not a single noto was  written of tho overture to "Don Giovanni," which was to bo producod  on tho following ovening. When he  had said good-byo to his friends he  calmly wont to bod and slept until  five o'clock in the morning. 'Awaking  refreshed, arid with a bowl of punch  in front of him, ho sot to work on  the overture, dashing off sheet after  shoot with incredible rapidity and  dispatching'thorn to tho copiers. The  opera was to begin at seven in the  evening, and a fow minutes later  Mozart was in his placo as conductor, baton in hand, whilo0thc parts  with the ink still wot on somo of  thcm woro being handed to tho orchestra.  Not long ago Mr. W. IC. Vandcr-  bilt,! Jim., decided to havo a railway constructed around his estate at  Deopdalo, nnd qs he wanted it in a  hurry he saw no reason why it.  should not bo mado in a day. For  a millionaire to order "is to ho'obeyed; and within twenty-four hours  tho Deopdalo estate .was  GIRDLED BY A RAILWAY  a mile long and an ongino drawing a  freight train was shorting its way  along it. Whon, somo time since,  Calientcs, a town of 2,000 inhabitants, just over tho Nevada line, was  virtually wiped oif the map, owing  to a' change in Denator Clark's  transcontinental railroad, which was  being built towards tho Pacific  Coast, its inhabitants made littlo ,to  do about being thus -left in tho  lurch." They simply packed up their  belongings, made for a point on tho  new route, and within twenty-four  hours had run up another town-large  enough to accommodato them all.  Another remarkable record was  mado by Mr.- Bryan during his Presidential campaign four years ago.  Not a small part: of tho duty of a  candidate for the White House is to  shako hands, by tho thousands, with  his supporters; and on: one day in  October, 1900 Mi*. Bryan eclipsed all  records by gripping no fetver than  11,420 hands ;; between an early  breakfast and a lato supper.  An astonishing musical feat was  performed recently at Padua, when  Bencia, "the world's, champion for  uninterrupted piano-playing," gave  a recital lasting from seven o'clock  on Sunday niorning to eleven o'clock  on Monday evening. During this  time he played 250 composilions  from memory, with only two pauses  of  TEN MINUTES EACH.  Ait Italian professor not long ago  recited tho whole of Dante's "Divine Comedy" from memory, in a  continuous silling of twenty hours.

TWO NOTEDJ&VIVALISTS  LONDON'S     GREAS   RELIGIOUS  AWAKENING.  Pen Pictures of the Two Men Who  Are  Stirring the World's  Metropolis.  Tho Terry-Alexander mission in  London is reported elaborately in tho  newspapers, and i.s the subject of  sympathetic editorial articles. It  was also referred to in tho sermons  in many prominent churches last  Sunday. Archdeacon Welberforco.  at Westminster Abbey, preaching on  the parable of the wheat, and tbo  lares, said that "beneath thoso  words wns the implied injunction to  keep our fingers off our brethren's  religious methods, whether Welsh revivals. Albert Hall missions or High  Church (missions. Bulls of excommunication issued by Protestant alliances have gono out of date."  Bishop Stepney, nt St. Paul's Cathedral, in a similar sympathetic reference, said Uiero wns need of a like  soul-stirring within tho Church of  England itself.  In conducting a revival service it"  is Sir. Alexander's task to pave Uio  way for Dr. Torrey. Mr. Alexander  stands upon a crimson pillar about  twice the height of a tall man and  somo six feet square at its baso and  top. He is backed and flanked by  his choristers, whose oyos follow his  every movement, while beforo him  stretches an audience whose gaze  nover leaves his face. Indeed, it is a  strange thing to watch the men and  women filing in and see the littlo  start they give when their eyes fall  on Mr. Alexander for the first timo.  His is not the figure they would look  for in a missioner. He is tall and  firmly set above his broad, -.square  shoulders, a comely head of the  dark, close-cropped, clean-shaven,  square-cut kind. But it is his eyes  ���������deep brown, deep set, and deoply  pfercingw���������that hold one. Then his  dross smacks in no way of the evangelist. Upon his well-made figure  hangs a frock coat that tho great  Poole himself might have built. His  collar, with its wings, is snowy  white*, and is enriched by a glossy  satin tie. : No wrinkle inars the  "dead-creasod" splendor of his trousers, and tho eye rests gratefully upon his trim*, shapely boots. Mr. Alexander seems to have wandered.front  Bond street.  WEDDED TO HJS TASK.  But all ideas ofv Bond street fado  .when Mr.' Alexander sots ,: to work.  Theii one'only sees a man very much  in earnest���������a '"man wedded to his  task. At the opening of a .'.meeting  Mr. Alexander sets himself to laugli  his'hearers, into love with him; : For  Instance, as with his strong, white  nervous hands he is boating put  thc music, of some hymn, and all are  singing lustily, hc will, with one  uplifted finger, stay thc singing in  tho middle of : a bar. Thon he will  turn, and speaking to some man individually, smilo and say: "Do not  look round when vou hoar other people coming in: thoy are only common people liko yourself." Again  he will stop the singing and; pick  out, maybe, a row of stewards, , a  row of childrenr or possibly some  old iman or woman, or a boy, who  seems to him'nre not singing as thoy  should. 'And while all tho peoplo  smilo, he will make tho feeble singer  stand up alono and give a terror-  stricken, quav'cring solo. The result  mny easily bo guessed. Whenever his  eyes light there do mon and women  sing witli all their might. Tlioy  have no desire to be made unwilling  soloists in the midst of laughing  thousands. So he keeps them singing for an hour or more such hymns  as the "Glory Song." Presently tho  people come to sing willingly, tind  at the last with fervor, till all tho  hall is filled with vibrant sound  and grows electric with warm,  breathing life. Then it is that the  Sousa among Gospel singers steps  nimbly from the crimson pillar and  Dr. Torrey walks slowly up instead.  THE SUCCESSOR TO SANKEY.  In the hush that follows one is almost chilled by thc cold stntelincss  of Dr. Torrey. Ho towers above -one,  huge-=and-^commanding,--���������looking -  steadily into space with eyes that  gleam frostily bluo beneath his high,  wide forehead. His mouth is.hidden  beneath a whito moustache, and a  close-cut white beard clings tightly  to his strong chin nml full, palo  cheeks. In figuro he is massive, almost burly, and it seems hard to  think that this man up to a fu.v  years ngo played baseball.'and. wus  on all-round athlete. But Dr. T.ir-  rey had seven years nt Yale, whore  in his own words "games-Were in nre  to him than godliness." Tic looks  more than his cight-nnd-forty years,  but his .zest in life is keen. Moreover,  in spite of his apparent gloom, ho is  a man of merry heart, and those  who know him will oven call him "a  witty fellow."  He grips his Bible and thrusts it  into his hearers' faces, ns if hc woultl  thrust its message into their hearts.  Then, raising hfs voice till it roars  like breakers on a beach, and clenching his powerful hands, he drives  home the few simple truths he  preaches. Finally, with, extended  aru������s. he asks: "Will you accept the  Lord Jesus Christ���������right hoti?"  over and over again. Then: "All  who will���������stand up." And such is  the forco of tho invitation thnt men  and women seemed dragged from  their scats. By this time Mr. Alexander is standing by his white-haired  colleague's side, noting with Ilia  piercing eyes all those whi rise.  "One moro on tho right," he crios  sharply: and Dr. Torrey sonorously  responds,  "Cod  bless you."

THE  "Provincial Rights" was the watchword   of   so-called   Liberals for many  years.     During that  period, all local  issues of a quasi judicial nature.berag  dealt with by   the  various Provincial  Legislatures, created legal discussions  and these   were a   fruitful source of  . differences of opinion iis to the meaning and intention of the British North  America   Act.     Session after session  witnessed   heated    controversies    on  some  particular question  affecting a  Province or the Provinces collectively.  Sir John Macdonald, who was prime  minister  from 1S67  to 1S73 and from  1S78   to   1891,   was    a   constitutional  authority.     He   believetl    in    going  slowly, and in  testing each irritating  subject   as   it   arose.     Naturally  lie  looked for solution  of each problem,  by the highest court in  the land, in  the  earlier days, subsequently hy the  Supreme Court and eventually by the  Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in  Great Britain.   For this he was  denounced in  unmeasured terms  by  his political opponents.    To-day the  vindication of  Sir  John Macdonald's  policy is found in the extraordinary  position    assumed     by    those   who  saw   nothing  save   chicanery in  the  policy of that great statesman.    On  the other hand, time has but proved  the insincerity of Sir Wilfrid Laurier  z^^andhis^upporters.^Jn^the^oIddays  we bave said, Sir John Macdonald aud  his   colleagues   were   endeavoring to  solve every problem hy adopting constitutional   methods, to   the end that  precedents,  based upon formal judgments,   might   be   established.    Concealing their designs under the cloak of  patriotism.   Liberals    stirred     every  Province, as is pointed out by a writer  in the Ottawa Citizen.    They agitated  every community, imparting motives  as unworthy as they would have been  unpatriotic,   if   true;     Conservatives  were   charged   with the coercing and  throttling of Provinces; public opinion  and  public passion   were appealed to  and aroused, the tricksters eventually  getting control  of nearly all the Provincial    Legislatures,     the      success  attending their efforts in that direction  eventually crushing the upheaval that  enabled Sir "Wilfrid Laurier to grasp  the reins of power.   Then Mr. Clifford  Sifton was taken into the Government  and   a   Senatorship   offered   to    Mr.  Green way.     These  gentlemen  being  Liberals,   had    co-operated   with   Sir  Wilfrid's  agents,    had    refused    all  offers from  the Conservative Government,   and   a   Liberal    victory   was  scored.   Messrs. Sifton and Green way,  egged on by the Hon. Joseph Martin,  had introduced  the apple of discord,  ���������were sponsors for a bill that deprived  the minojity  of  privileges they had  enjoyed for twenty years, and yet, a  Premier who professed and still professes   to    promote   and   increase   if  possible,   minority  rights,   not   only  rewarded the agitators but took them  iuto  his embrace and   became their  most ardent patron.    Mr. Greenway  did not take  the Senatorship, but he  is member of tho House of Commons,  and would  be the Premier's Miuister  of Interior, if he dare go back to his  constituents.   And how about British  Columbia?     The   grievances   of    the  people of this Provinces have time and  time again been brought  up in the  liouse of  Commons  at Ottawa; delegates have gone to the capital, presenting  official   records  and   urging  Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier    to    redress   those  grievances.     Contemptuous    indifference was the answer, save and except  when a general election was announced  and   then nothing: was too   good  to  promise British Columbia.     That wns  all���������a Liberal  promise made, like piecrust, only to be broken 1     This Province must wait, until the position sho  is in, can  be utilised for the furtherance of some scheme whereby friction  in othei* provinces may be avoided or  removed, and party advantage gained.  British Columbia sustains a Conservative Government and  well it is for  the people that like some others it is  not the mere puppet and  hireling of  the Federal authorities;wise it is for  the electors   to   trust one who knows  what duty means���������a Premier who is a  native   of  British   Columbia,   rather  than a mere petty office seeker be he  Liberal or Conservative.   The troubles  in the   Territories,   consequent   upon  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's effort to burthen  the ratepayers with enormous responsibilities as well as to violate the constitution,   significantly    demonstrate  the dangers surround ing and threatening   Provinces, for a   more bare-faced  effort to throttle the proposed North  West_ Provinces   cannot   readily be  The Premier's Statement Regarding Railway Legislation  ���������Oliver's Want of Confidence  Motion Defeated.  imagined. This question is not alone  one of coercion with reference to an  educational system; it is far reaching  in other respects, namely a deadly  blow aimed at Provincial Rights, and  if the Province of Quebec is to dictate  to all the other Provinces by reason of  its solid mnjority, then it is time for  sensible people.

C, April 5.���������Mr. John  Oliver���������Honest John of the Delta���������is  happy. Pursuant to the expressed  desire of the Government to court the  fullest investigation ns to any alleged  irregularities in the matter of the  Kitimitat land grants, a select committee has been appointed for the  grave and onerous task of enqniry  into a strictly departmental matter.  The committee is composed of Messrs.  Macgowan (Vancouver) chairman;  and Gilford (New Westminster),  Brown (Greenwood), Bowser, (Vancouver) and the redoubtable Oliver  himself.:  As some of  the   opposition   papers  have rather lost  their heads in   this  matter,   and    are  already    shouting  about scandal before scandal is proven,  and   making    the    usual   scurrilous  attacks upon the Chief Commissioner  of Lands  and   Works���������whose   shoes  Mr. Oliver is most anxious to  fill���������the  exact position of affairs may  be with  beneflt'here explained to your readers.  There is,  of course,   always   a possibility, so long as frail  human nature  remains   as   at   present    constituted,  that a trusted clerk  may   make some  error, or may even  do  wilful   wrong.  This can be done  very easily  by  the  clerk without the  knowledge of the  minister in charge of the Department,  especially in   tl-.e case  of British  Columbia, which, prior  to   the  re-establishment   of  a   strong government a  year and a half ago, had  had no  less  than six administrations in  a period  of less than  five year.?.   Tliat means  six Chief Commissioners in  five years  so that each  unhappy  holder of this  responsible portfolio  had  to take all  the abuse for anything   which  went  wrong in  the Department,   and yet  was expected to enter upon his duties  fully equipped for  their performance,  and given less  than  a  year   to learn  thernMf^he^were^not^aequainted^writh"  them.   The clerk  on  the other hand  has been   probably  for   years in  the  office, has worked his way up,  and   is  valuable because of his  knowledge of  involved routine of   the department���������  a knowledge which, should lie wish to  he   dishonest, he   can   easily   use   to  deceive his superiors.  Then, when a clerk makes a rnistnke,  or does wrong, the Chief Commissioner  is at once attacked and the Government declared to be no good. What!  Does the defalcation of a hank cashier  stamp the directors of the bank as  criminals? When the shop-boy robs  the till, must the proprietor go to  prison?  Some are inclined to blame tho Government for granting the member for  Delta his select committee and putting  the country to expense   on account of  what is purely  a  departmental affair  and outside the functions of the Legislature.   But, under the circumstances,  the  Government has decided, liaving  nothing to conceal, that the investigation   shall   bo as  open   nntl public as  were   thc chnrges.     In   this they are  probably right.

The Budget debate was continued  this afternoon, several members addressing the House, and the lender of  the Opposition being still ou his feet  when the Speaker saw six o'clock. A  very amusing speech was made by  Mr. Ross (Fernie) who took the line of  criticising the critics. He scored the  Opposition for not having introduced  a single piece of noteworthy legislation in two years. Mr. Ross made his  rebuke   very   personal,   dropping   on  Department has dragged itself along  all the week, and ns   yet   the eagerly  desired evidences of universal corruption  have failed  to materialize.

Mr. J. A. Macdonald (Rossland) gave  the House a' most lachrymose speech.  He fairly wept over the condition of  British Columbia, and gave his own  constituency several unkind side-slaps  into the bargain. He took up the  lumber question first, and assured the  lumbermen of British Columbia that  they could look for no redress���������in the  matter of customs duty or otherwise,  until they had come down in their  prices. The duty had been taken oif  because they- were all in a combine,  and it would stay off. Thar, quoth  the leader of the Liberal Opposilion,  was his stand and the stand of the  Liberal party.  This piece of information will doubtless be as gratifying to the lumber  interests of British Columbia as the  reply their delegation got the other  day from Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and  took_a���������foui'-thousand mile-journey-to.

Tt   is   probable   that  the end of   the  session   is  not fur off, but much will  depend on   the celerity  or otherwise  with which   the   business  now beforo  the liouse can     bo despatched,   and  nlso   upon   railway   matters.     These  latter  have   been somewhat obscured  during the past week by  tbo consideration   of   the  estimates,   nntl, though  several   caucuses  have   been   held, no  details of any  definite character have  yot reached the public.  8ATUKIJAY, Al'Itll. 8TH.  The   mnmitioth    investigation   into  coal lands and no discussion took'  place over it. It was simply put to  the vote, at once and defeated by 22 to  13���������a majority of nine,- and the record  for the session.  Before moving the adjournment at  the close   of   yesterday's   session . the  Premier rose and stated that he wished to make  an announcement with  regard to the railway situation.    The  Government had decided that no railway legislation would be introduced  at this session.    This conclusion, said  Mr. McBride, had been arrived at very  reluctantly, and it was only decided  upon when  it became apparent that  no efforts of the Government���������though  these had been made with unceasing  diligence   and   vigor���������could  avail   to  secure  railroad   construction of  any  kind, and the Coast-Kootenay road in  particular, upon   terms   or with any  guarantee that would at all adequately  protect the interests of the people of  this province.   The Premier reminded  the  House   that scores of bills, both  public and private, had been  passed  by different Legislatures of this province, and it was hardly necessary for  liiDWto^idwellixupon^the=very--8cant  amount of railways which had resulted from that Kind of legislation.    He,  for his  part, had pledged himself and  his   Government   that    any  railway  policy they might  bring down should  be one involving actual and immediate  construction; and, until   he   was   in a  position   to   introduce ^legislation   of  that description, protecting   the interests of I he people in every part of the  country and at  the same time provide  adequate  transportation  facilities, he  did not propose to introduce what was  known as railway legislation at all.  The nouse, however, continued the  Premier,   could   rest   assured     that,  while it  was  not  the intention ot the  Government  to submit any policy in  regard to railways during the present  session, the   policy   of assisting  railways was not one  that he intended to  hold in   abeyance.     On the contrary,  no means would be spared to press the  question   of   transportation   to  satisfactory   result, but  under  no circumstance   would   he   ask  the  House  to  endorse any rail wny legislation unless  it   were of   such   a  nature   that  the  interests of  the  people of British Columbia were fully ancl amply protected.  Tt   was   the   present  impossibility  of  securing such  conditions which   had  led  to   the   decision  be now so reluctantly announced.

Then ho hns tho best interests of the  patrons  of  the  factory   to  considor.  Some  patrons  will tnko  proper care  | of tlieir milk, and seo .that it is   always  sent  to  the  factory  in     good  condition,  while '"-'others will be. careless, .jallow' their   cows   to   feed     on  what  thoy should  not,   or arc     not  careful about milking-, or hauling tho  milk as thoy should bo, and when it  arrives  at     the  factory  tho     maker  finds it is not (It to make Ilrst-class  cheese.     It is his duty to refuse, and  not accept, such milk,  whether it be  from the largest "patron or the most  influential man in  tho company, just  tho    same    ns if    it  woro' from  the  smallest patron or tho meanest ono.  Tho cheesomaker needs to be a just,  upright,     impartial    man,    and     lie  should bo courteous also.     If a can  of milk smells  bad,   it is  not necessary to say'it is  rotten,  vilo,     etc.  Such expressions    are apt  to  offend  the owner and drive him away from  the factory; whereas, if he '"wore carefully advised 0that his milk was     off  in  flavor  or  quality not  right,     ho  might get interested, and finally become ono of the best supporters     of  tho factory.

Therefore the success     or  failure  of  a    factory  depends     vory  largely on  the manager.  A cheesomaker should be a bit of  an engineer, understand how to caro  for and manage his boiler and ongino so as to get lho best out of  them for the fuel consumed, and  have them last a long time.

Coughing in pigs may be caused  by worms, but is usually the result  of dusty sheds and pens, and is  frequently a symptom of hog cholera, in such cases lho cough taking  pluce as soon ns the pigs'are stirred  up; then, again, cough is quite commonly duo in pigs to small worms  (filariao) found in lhe nir passages  (bronchi and lungs^) It is often  caused by thc pigs sleeping in damp  quarters, or piling up nt night anil  becoming overheated, nnd this brings  on'a cold, and ivilh. it a cough. Tho  pigs should have dry, cle.-in, comfortable sleeping quarters, with not  too many t,o;;other in cold weather,  and if tho yards aro free Prom dust  there should bc no coughing.  For-intestinal worms in pigs the  best remedy is santonin and calomel. This mixture is liable to kill  tho pigs if ono should gel nn overdose,  nnd caro must bo used.  Liko all other 'strong medicines,  both the santonin and calomel must  be carefully used. The user must  compute carefully, the exact amount  for a dose for each pig- to be treated, and not guess at the amount  given.

The Place of Evil as tho old Cripo  homestead near Rochester, Indiana,  was called, can no longer bo pointed  out to curious strangers. It hus  been torn down. In 50 years, thirteen occupants of tlio house havo mot  unnatural deaths or become insane.  Tho llnal tragedy enacted in this  hou.so occurred on Tuesday ovening  December 0th, us the result of tho in-  snno jealousy of a dissipated and deserted husband.

Hushing to -.the 'door, he saw his  father lying on the ground with tho  shotgun across his breast. Tho  whole top of his head wns torn  awny. Ho had placed the muzzle of  the gun in hii inouth nnd leaned  over and pulled tho trigger.  As a result of tho shooting Mrs.  Hrahum died on tho following day,  thus making three murders and ona  suicide as. the concluding tragedy in  the history of this house of many  tragedies.

"I suffered so much with acute indigestion that I frequently would  walk tho floor through tho long  nights," -said Mrs. Thomas Vincent,  residing at 08 St. Peter streot, Quo-  bee. "I hnd boon ailllcted with tho  troublo," she continued, "for upwards of'twenty years, but it was  only during the past year that it assumed an acute form. Thoro wore  times when 1 was almost distracted;  everything I ate disagreed with me  and tho pains in the region of the  stomach wore almost unbearable.  Whon tho attacks were at their worst  my head would grow di-vy und would  throb violently, and sometimes I  would experience sever.e attacks of  iinur.cn.

"You don't buy so much meat now  ns you did in tho st Winer," remarked  tho  butcher.   .  "No," responded the lad, "and  it's because father has become a  vegetarian."

Who does not recall Lord Roberts'  gallant ' charger Volonel���������tho littlo  grey Arab which carried its medals  and its muster so proudly in tho  Diamond .lubileo procession? Volonel had belonged in his early years to  an Indian chief, nnd whon Lord  Roberts bought him ho discovered  that the Arab's tail had been broken  in two pieces to produco a graceful  caudal curve. When Queen Victoria  awarded medals to her soldiers who  had fought in the Afghan Campaign  and in the expedition to Candahar,  Volonel wa.s greatly but not undeservedly honored. Lord Roberts  proudly hung round his neck the  Cabul medal with four clasps and  the Candahar star of bronze. and  In lor tl-.e Queen presented him with  tlie  .lubileo  medal.  At the advanced ngo of twenty-  threo tho game little stood���������ho was  only l'l-J hands high���������was ns playful  as any kitten. Ho survived to see  his twenlysiiintli birthday, and "lies  buried near the Royal Hospital,  Dublin,-in  tho  rose-garden."  Copenhagen,- Wellington's famous  chestnut, charger,-��������� was only two  inches higher tlm'n littlo Volonel.  He carried his great master through:  tho Peninsular War. and bore him  for  eighteen  hours  ON  THE DAY  OF WATERLOO.  When his fighting days wero o-"er thc  little Danish horso 'was'scut to  Si rathlieldsayo, where ho was tend-  ei ly cured for. His last days wero  somewhat embittered, it is true, by  the misguided worship ot thousands  of his admirers who wont lo visit  him���������in fact, the nuisance became so  great that the Duke was compelled  to put him in a cage. When at  last he succumbed to old ngo hc was  accorded an impressive funeral, and  a tombstone wns erected to commemorate his virtues and his loyal  service.  An equally honored old ago was  that of the whilo charger Marengo,  which carried Napoleon on the field  of Waterloo. Aftor his master's  flight Marengo was found by an English officer wandering disconsolately  on lhc battlefield, :and he was sent  to England, where ho spent many  happy years in peakeful pastures and  tended by reverent grooms. He survived Napoleon nine years, and  when old age and pneumonia combined to ond'his career his skeleton  was sent for prefcrvntion to tho  Royal United Service Institution in  Whitehall. '  Thero has seldom, if ovcr, been a  braver and more loyal war-horse  than Traveller, who carried his master. General Leo, through scores of  battles, and camo through them all  without a scratch. Tt is said that  he. whinnied pitifully when ho followed thc General's coffln, to the  grave; and it wns not long nfter  that, whilo grazing, a nail became  embedded in his foot and he died of  lockjaw. Copenhagen bore Stonewall  Jackson through  TEN' FIERCE BATTLES  before the fatal bullet struck his  rider. He survived, through an  honored and lovingly-tended old age,  unlil 1880; and he may be soon today, stuffed and cleverly mounted, in  a-glass caso in tho library of tho  Soldiers'  Home,  Virginia.  General Washington had many  horses who rendered him devoted  service, and whom he regarded with  affection: but tho most prized of  them all was the brown charger  which he bestrode at tho surrender  of  Lord   Cornwallis. Hung     with  heavy mourning robes and led by a  groom ho followed the cofiin of his  dead friend and master to his last  resting-place. General Sheridan's  famous black war-horse Rienzi long  survived all thc dangers of war, and  died loved and mourned in 1876. His  bodv was mounted and is to be seen  in the museum of Governor's Tslund,  in  New  York Bay.  It seems to have been thc fate of  most^otwth.ese .famous horses _to_sur-  vivo their masters. Such, howeveiT  was not thc lot of Nellie Grey, tho  handsomest charger in all the Confederate Army. Nellie, with General  Fitv.hugh Lee on hcr back, seemed to  bear a char "tl lifo, so many wero  the dangers slie escaped, until at  last she fell in the very thickest of  tho fight at tho Battle of Winchester. Cincinnati, tho most loved of  all General Grant's horses, was  more fortunate than Nellie: for he  survived all the horrors of the Civil  War and died "as sincerely lamented  ns hc had lived respected."���������London  Tit-Bits  . . - ��������� ���������   "There nro a few points in naval  construction that I'd like to study  before ordering this new battleship," said the-grand vizier.

Sequel      to      the       Baltic      Fleet  Crisis���������Commandeered a  Supply. ���������  It is hard lo believe that when  everyone thought that Great I'rituin  was on lho brink of war with Russia  after tho North Sea outrage the  British fleet was practically helpless at Gibraltar owing to want of  coal, says the lxmdon Daily  Chronicle.  Yet this is1 tho sensational statement mndo in tho Indian Daily Nows  by. Captain Berrymnn, of the steamer London Bridge, orf his arrival at  Calcutta.  Thc London Bridge left England  with a cargo of coal for Port Said  just beforo I'.io Norlh Sea occurrence.  Captain Dcrrymnn arrived oil the  Straits of Gibraltar about four  o'clock  in tho morning.  "We were going Ihrough quietly,"  he told a representative of the Indian Daily News, "when out of thc  harbor camo torpodo boats and  launches.  " 'Who are you?' nsked the leading boat, and when I replied I was  told I must como into Gibraltar.  TOOK VESSEL'S   COAL.  "I was greatly astonished at this,  and thought they were stopping all  traffic through tho Straits. But  when I reached the harbor T found  they wanted my cool. Thoy'told me  to start unloading at once, and tho  London Bridge wont from ship to  ship until sho wns empty. We wore  two  days  over the job.  -"There were fourteen war vessels  in the bay, and they had been gathered hurriedly from all parts of the  Mediterranean. So they wero fairly  well empty by thc time they reached  Gibraltar.  "What stock of coal was thore at  Gibraltar? Well, 1 do not know for  certain. Ashoro there was, 1 believe  only 1,000 tons of patent fuelcin  hulks. But I had no opportunity to  seo how much there wns on shore.  OTHER BOATS STOPPED.  "The stock must have been low,  however, for I was not the only boat  that was stopped. Ten others at  least there wore within thc two days  only���������all  English,   of  courso."  Asked for further details, Captain  Bei-rymnn continued:  "I don't know^if the Government  ha'd arranged with, tho Fort Said  people to buy tho coal before thoy  took it. Probably this may have  been arranged, for tho business could  bo settled quickly by cablegram. But  it was "the British'Government, you  soo, that commandeered it, nnd the  London Bridge is a British ship, so  that did not trouble mc at all."

Much excitement has beeu aroused  by the killing of Gannon, who also  was president of tho village board of  Spooner. Gannon's wifo and children  barely escaped death at the hands of  the roughs.  The trouble was due to a years fight  over the townsite of Spooner. Gannon  filed on the townsite of Spooner as a  homestead and '.he Spooner Townsite  company tried to enter tho same tract  under the townsite law. The case is  now in the courts.
