Work at the Silver'Dollar is still in  progress, nothing of especial importance having transpired during the  week. A blue print of the compressor  that is to he erected on the property,  came to hand last week, and as the  machinery was shipped at the same  time as. the print, it should soon bc  heard of. ,The "compressor,-which, is  being supplied by the Allis, Chalmers  Co., is of the direct connected type;  which means thnt it is connected directly with the Doble water wheel  which drives it. Thc wheel is eight  feet in diameter and also takes the  place of a fly wheel. The machine is  one of the latest productions of the  most approved pattern. Frank O.  Gieen, P.

Aerie of the  Order of Eagles on Wednesday, .May  24th.'-"was a-complete-success. -The  start was made from the old -wharf - at  7 a.m., calling afterwards at the  site of the old Smelter.     '  There were 95 passengers aboard  when she left -the latter place, and  owing to the inclemency of the weather  this was considered a good showing.  Over 209 tickets weie sold and the  committee were anxious as to accommodation on the steamer. They are  now satisfied, however, that 200 passengers could have availed themselves  of the trip and ample accommodation  provided for same.  On arriving at Arrowhead the Inde-  peLdent Band marched up the main  stieet followed by the excursionists,  i who weie given a hearty welcome.  Passengers were taken on here and  the boat proceeded on her journey  down the Arrowhead Lakes. A short  stop was made at Halcyon where  'courtesies were exchanged and* a fine  view of the Sanitarium was had, proceeding from thence to our destination  at St- Leon, where the s.s. Rossland  was anchored, and*its'officers,' headed  by Mr, Jas. Taylor and Mr. Grady,  proprietor of the St. Leon hotel, gave  us~a��������� hearty- welcomes Some���������three  hours were spent here and the popular  host, assisted by his niece, Miss Smith,  left'nothing unturned that might add  to the conifort of the visitors. The  baths were placed at the disposal of  the Eagles who thoroughly appreciated  his kindness in this respect. A  substantial and tasty dinner was provided, to which the excursionists did  full justice. ,It was somewhat of a  surprise to those of us who had not  been previously to St. Leon, to see a  hotel built: on the most modern and  approved plans, no expense heing  spared for the comfort of guests. To  visitors who wish to roam we may  state that the hotel has 420 acres of  ground. Trout fishing, and to- the  more energetic, bear and deer hunting  are'afforded the visitor or visitors at  this ideal spot.  The return tiip was very pleasant,  the weather by this time had cleared  up, giving the passengers a chance to  view the magnificent sceneiy, which  was picturesque on both sides of the  i-iver. The journey home was made  in the record time of 3 bouts'*aud a  half between Arrowhead and the old  landing.  The committee in charge, Captain  Forslund and staff are tp be congratulated on making this one of the most  enjoyable outings Revelstoke citizens  havo had the opportunity of enjoying  for some time.

'.Aa       '���������"  '     LACKOSSE.  The laciosse'game yesterday" between Kamloops-?and Kevelstoke intermediate teams ;'drewa"laigo crowd  to-1 the iMackenzi&'i-venue,,, grounds.  The teams were, pr.tjfty-'evenly balanced  Kamloops if unybliirift being a little  heavier and' a fairly good game was  the result. ' The condition of - the  ground was much against igood la  crosse, the grass, being-long and the  ground wet and slippery as a result of  the recent rains.  The first quarter was Kamloops all  the   way, ending   with   two   goals to  their credit.    The home team did not  keep a  close   enough   watch ou their  checks and repeatedly Benny Dickey  was called on  to defend his goal with  no one to check the rush of the Kamloops  home   men.     He   made  some  clever stops however tind with a little  more   experience   will   make   a good  custodian.     The   second   quarter was  of   a give  and take nature no goals  being   scoied.      In the (hiid however  Kamloops added two more making i:  four   to   nothing.      It   looked like  a  white   wash   for  Revelstoke.    When  the teams lined up for the final quarter a change was noticed in the positions of   some   of   the  playets of   tbe  home team, Knight   was moved fiom  cover   point   to   centre, Dunne going  back  to   cover  point and Woodland  taking   Dunne's place at thiid ho.ue.  The change   proved   a  judicious one  and in less than two minutes a pretty  combination between Knight, Kerfoot,  Johnston  and  Woodland   resulted in  a goal for'.': Revelstoke. .���������'. The ball was  faced ag!iin,_aiid_agaiii_the_coiiihin,i-  tion worked and goal two was tallied.  Revelstoke  was evidently waking up.  The Kamloops boys made a big effort  te   increase their score but tho homo  defence was on ils mettle and foiled all  such attempts.   The combination was  worked   once   more, 'making it three  goals for Kevelstoke..-.-..The liome team  made a gallant  attempt to make the  game a tic but time would not permit  and time was called with the score 4  to Sin favor of the visitors.   Gentlemanly   conduct  oil   tho   part of   the  players Was a feature of the game and  Charlie  Latham   made  an   excellent  referee.    Following was the line tip  KASlioOPS BEVELSTOKB  G.

Barber  Construction to be Commenced  Immediately ��������� The Railway  Centre of Interior���������Extensive  Yard Improvements.  Messrs. Smith and ' Shcrbourne,  contractors, of Victoria, are tho successful tenderers for the new C.P.K.  depot to be erected in this city.  Revelstoke is the railway centre of  the interior of British Columbia, and  business has been increasing so rapidly during the past few years that the  railway company Aiid it necessary to  erect a commodious station and. office  building. The plans show one of the  handsomest stations outside of tho  large cities and will be amply capable  of covering the big business handled  from Revelstoke along the main line  of the C.P.R. as well as tho rapidly  increasing traffic on the branches into  the.Kootehhys.  The building/will bo two floors  above the ground, coiiitiucted of  mixed stone and brick,wliile from the  contour of the place an extra storey  of cut stone will be built below that.  The ground floor will be devoted to  baggage, express and general railway  purposes. A telegraph oflice for tbe  public will also be located on this  floor, while above will be the offices of  the general staff. The oflices of the  railway dispatchers will bu on the first  floor above the ground. Tbe superintendents, with their small army of  clerks, and the civil and contracting  engineers will also be assigned loomy  quarters in which to perform, their  duties. The site of tho new depot is  tho one originally chosen by the  company���������the site-of Bourne Bros,  old store.  Messrs. Smith & Shcrbourne have  sub-let to Robert Samson, of this city,  the excavation work also the quarrying and delivery of the stone. Mr.  Samson commenced tho work of  clearing'the site on Monday last. ,Mr^  Sinitb,' 'of ,the contraetirig^fcip/lis-"  aheady on the grounds and .will be  joined here on Monday by his paitner,  Mi-. Sherhourne, when plans will be  laid for commencement and rushing  to comple'tibn'of the new_dep.pt.  Tenders wero called,for the construction of the new building and  most of the big contractois in the  province made bids. Tho successful  tenderers did the work for the C. P.  R. offices at the railway, dock in Victoiia, and are now^ busily engaged  building a skyscraper   in   Vancouver.  ln addition to the construction of  the new depot tho company have prepared plans for the election of a  number of auxiliary buildings necessary to the systematic handling of  their immense traffic at this point,  and also for extensive yard improvements, the whole work involving the  expenditure of a.sum well up in six  figures.  With the completion of this work  Revelstoke will be well established in,  the position heretofore claimed by her  citizens as the railway centre of the  interior of the province, and as this  city-is-also-the^conimercial:cei.tre_of.  rapidly developing mining and him-  boring industries, her citizens may  well look forward with pride and confidence to a bright future.  Head-On Collision To-day.  Engine 1151 with Engineer Shipley,  and engine 1082 with Engineer Murray, collided at 12 noon today, just  ono milo cast of Donald. As far as  can be ascertained no one is hurt. Xo  particulars as to the cause of the  collision arc yeh to hand, it issupposed  however that the operator at Beaver-  mouth is to blame.

Imperial Limited June 4  Final arrangements have been made  for the season's double daily service of  the Imperial Limited transcontinental  train. Tho service will be commenced  on Juno 4, whioh date is nine days  earlier than the trains, started last  season. .This is due lo the fact that  .the company has. found it necessary  to operate the trains at the beginning  of Juno in order to accommodate the  travel to and from the west. The  passenger traffic between tho Pacific  Coast and Montreal has boen growing  heavier each year. Last season it  surpassed any previous year, and during the coming summer it is expected  that the number of .persons who will  travel .on theso two trains will bo  greater than ever hefore. It is to  meet this increase that the C.P.R.'has  prepared a schedule covering tho  season from June. The trains will he  the same as thos:vof last year with the  exception that there will be an improvement in the sleeping car service.  The most modern twelve section and  drawingrootn cars will be used and the  equipment will be the uniform. In  addition to this there will be double  drawingrootn and compartment cars  for special parties.  Ticket of Leave Man.       e  A splendid production of the four  act drama "The Ticket of Leave Man''  was given to a large audience hist  night at the Opera House by the  Amateur- Dramatic Club. The different characters were well sustained  throughout and the-performance was  considerably better than that given  last fall. A. marked improvement was  noticed in the. work of the individual  members of the caste. The entertainment was brought to a close with a  social dance, and Was in aid.of St.  Peter's Church Talent Society.  C, May 22.���������T.H. At-  ;ist, of yinir, stepped  at the assizes here Friday a free man and left the court  without a stain on his character. Atkinson's store was burned down some  months ago and he was arrested and  brought to ,trial on a charge of arson.  Tlio immediate sequel of this accusation���������a charge now shown to be..without- foundation ���������was one of the most  painful tragedies in the'histoi'y of tbe  Kootenays.  Atkinson was a married nian, aiid  with hiin lived his wife and daughter. Times were not of the best in the  mining camp, but the family managed  to hold -their heads above water and  to extiact ftoin lifo tbe happiness  derived from bravely wotking and  enduiing together. Then came the  fire', and in one short hour the 'foundation was laid for a tiaiu of events  which brought with them irrevocable  ruin and misery for the Atkinsons.  It is impossible for a fire to occur in  a small town without somebody suspecting ^uiething. Ymir was 1:0  exception, n<5r were its people worso  than other people. lt was whispeie.l  about that the .duiggisl had fired his  place for the sake of tho insurance,  and circumstantial detailswhich.hud  no foundation in' fact ���������''.wero added as  the story passed around uutil finally  the police -took cognizance of the  the affair and arrested Atkinson. _  Averted faces of acquainUmces'nnd  altei ed demeanor of friends had already made Mrs. ..Atkinson" aware  that something .wius wrong, but there  was no mistaking the -attitude of the  little community in 'which she lived  after- her ' husband had been taken  fi'-piir^iier. Then, at the very time  when slie needed"* conifort most, sh-j -<  was deserted by'hcr own sex. This  .wits the last str.tw. Stretched on thu  rack of agonizing suspense already, ic -  neede'd buc the social ostracism, oc  which she was now made the victim,  to tlnow her mind off its balance.  Turning from the stoney faces of  those around "she-sought oblivion in  the cold, dark w-ateri of the reservoirr  And when, later, hands that were  kinder- in her death than they hail  been to her when living, had made the  ruined bodv ready for burial, the  gossips of Ymir saw tbeir handiwork.-,  Thanks.

An observing person would  guess by his glance, quick and keen,  that he" hnd knocked about, by his  unflinching gaze Lhat he knew things,  by the furrows in liis youthful forehead that he had suffered and by his  silence that he had a story. 1 had  seen Sanderson onco before, but ho  bad not seen me. From my seat on  tho back of a calm-eyed cayiise 1 got  a glimpse of him riding a raft, laden  with lignite, down the South Saskatchewan. I thought ns I saw him  shooting a rapid nntl poling his raft  round a sand bar that hc was having  more fun and moro room than any  other man  in America. |  He was captain of his ship nnd no  mistake for there was not another  soul in sight. From my saddle I  saw only an endless reach of wild  land, broken hero and there by  bluffs or trees, save to the northeast  where the Eagle Hills humped dark  on the distant horizon. Immediately in front of me the great Saskatchewan chiseled a deep furrow in the  face of the earth an hundred feet  deep and half a mile wide. Beyond  the i-iver there was more of this un-  staked empire, sleeping sweetly in  the sun. ���������  That was in tho early summer  when tho warm Chinook was sighing,  and tho birds were brooding in thc  bluffs and wild duck were nesting in  tho marshy margins of a million  lakes. It was early autumn when  the halfbreed boy who was engineering the buckboai'd from which I was  seeing the Saskatchewan, turned in  for the night at Sanford Sanderson's. By the timo Sanford had  sauntered down from tho houso to  th* stables the halfbreed had tho  horses unhooked. Sanford gave us  a worm, wordless sort of welcome  that can be fully appreciated only  after you have come to know Sanderson.  We had homemade bread, fresh  butter and buttermilk for supper  that night, and we had wild chicken  broiled for breakfast. At tho ' request of our host I consented to stop  over for a few days' shooting. lt  was during ; these days in the field  and the evenings at his home that I  got from Sanderson, by absorption,  one might say, the story of his life.  Little by littlo he let me hear it,  hardly realizing that he was tolling  it at all. Now, as one picks up the  scraps of a letter;that has been torn  and tossed to the wind, I 'piece' it  out. for it is a. typical tale of pioneering in the Canadian west.  "My grandfather," said Sanderson,  "came to this country, or rather to  the United States, a young man  with considerable money. He seemed  to have a fondness for pioneering,  for he went at once into the wilds of  Minnesota.- Hc helped to settle the  northend district, and having a little cash, gathered a goodly fortune  in a very short time. When tlie  Sioux came and killed him and his  household, sparing only his only  son, he died the richest man in Minnesota, at- least that is what my  father used to tell me. Ultimately,  the Sioux were driven over into Canada. My father, who had been carried away, was released, at the suggestion of the Northwest mounted  police, and found his way back to  the scene of the massacre.  "After'much difiiculty he established his identity and got possession of  the lands and olher property left by  his lather. My father was now 20  years old, ignorant, but handsome  and rich for his day. Upon the advice of an old friend of the family  the boy devoted two years to study,  having had in his early youth only  such Education as was to be acquired at that lime by boys in a frontier town. At the age of 22 he came  into full possession of his property.  "Many opportunities were open to  him, but thc scenes of his boyhood  so haunted him that he determined to  sell out and go west.    South Dakota  ^was -just then.,.beginning.-to���������..rise,..  yawn, and stretch herself, and so,  having inherited his father's love for  the front, he moved to South  Dakota. At 30 he was president of  a bank. About that time he met  and married my mother who had  come out to Minnesota to teach  -school. Our house, as I remember it,  was the finest in tho town, and we  usually had company, people coining  up  from  Lena resting on a rustic bench, ono  hand on tho handle of a baby carriage that she was trundling back  and forth, back and forth, on the  gravel walk, I sprang to her side,  impulsively, dropping to the seat.  Sho got to her feet and stood trembling liko a frightened fawn. I spoke  to her and sho urged me to leave  her, which, as I was young and honest,   only  maddened   me.  "Presently when sho had become  calmer, she told mo that she had  found a good placo as nurse in the  houso of Mr. Blank, tho man who  ran the state bank. Naturally, being jealous of my father, whose bank  was a nutionnl bank, he had conceived a disliko for me. It seems tho  gossip of tho, town had already linked my name with Lena's so hcr new  mistress had taken the precaution to  wurn hor thot I was not to see her  while she made her home at that  number. And that was the cause of  hrr trembling at the sound of my  footsteps.  "When I pressed her she told me  thai she would lose her place if seen  with mo- "Lose your place," 1 repented, with all tho unreasonableness  of a boy in love. "I'd lose my life  for you."  "Tlien I saw her pretty chin tremble, tears started from her big bewildering eyes and turning quickly  she hurried homo wilh thc banker's  baby, while I, from the park bench,  watched hcr until her slender figure  faded in the shadows of the shrubs  that surrounded tho big frame house  in which she lived.  "It would take too long to tell  you all that passed that summer, of  the many meetings, at first by accident but later by appointment, until  sho seemed to me the fairest, thc  best, tho most abused young woman  in the world. Finally, ono day, I  took my mother to my heart, as  sho hod taken mo so many times in  my childish troubles, and told her  tho story of Lena and our lovo. Sho  listened calmly, kissed mo coldly,  and promised to speak to my father.  "The next day I was called to my  father's private office. He talked to  me methodically of stocks and  bonds, of lands and large interests  in trolleys and town lots, aod then  came to tho point. It was the old  story. I must mako my choice. Upon tho one hand there was home and  my heritage, on the other Lena and  our love. Being blind, young and  rash I walked out.  "Of course, when Mr. Blank learned that I had been disinherited he  was ready to be my 'rich uncle.' The  Blanks gave us a great wedding, and  if we may judge by the presents and  othei' plaudits not all thc peoplo in  the place took the view of my father.  And when, as vvo wore leaving. Mrs.  Blank kissed Lena and cried,, I was  happy. A woman can kiss another in  cold blood, but when they,,cry there  is something back of it that counts  for more than a kiss.  "Lena anu I lived on a homestead,  far from tho railroad, until our  baby was born. Then the railroad  came to disturb our peace. I sold  the South Dakota place;and. came up  into Canada. I bought a quarter  section on Portago Plains for five  dollars an acre and paid for the land  with my first crop. Having learned  that the new trans-continental railway lino lay across my quarter, I  sold out for seven dollars an acre. I  had two thousand dollars more  money now than I had carried into  Canada, some good horses and a few  blooded cattle. I did not realize at  the time, but I know now, that I  had in my blood the pioneer microbe  that had made my father and his  father fight always for tho front.  "I asked Lena if she -wanted to go  back to South Dakota; it seemed so  lonely for a woman away out on the  silent plain. ..She'smiled as sweetly  as ever and said 'Sanford, I just  want to go where you go.'  One day at the depot I mot an old  neighbor of mine from the south,  bound for tho bad lands north of  Regina. There was a great movement  on.  "I went back to my temporary  homo and looked over tho map, and  when I saw how far I was behind  the settlement, I told Lena to pack  up and we took the next train for  the front. I had the good fortune to  find a man who had a homesick wife  on his liands, and the memory of a  bad crop on his mind, and he sold a  half section all ready to seed for six  dollar's���������in-nero���������I-bought-_the._o.th.or_  the terror of tho sea passes. By  and by, the element of danger, tho  risk, you find only adds to thc intorost of the voyage. Tho professional gamblor, whether in Wall street  or at tho small green tablo in a  frontier town, gambles because it  fascinates him as surely as he gambles for gain, and that is one reason  why wheat growing in the Canadian  west is so interesting and that is  why men plant wheat to tho exclusion of other profitable crops���������because it's a gamble. It took me but  two seasons to see that. Why, wo  used to sit on the porch for hours  when a storm wns gathering at  night, watching tho slowly shifting  clouds. Then Lena would put tho  baby to bed and como nnd sit with  mc again r.intil the storm broke or  passed, or wo wero too sleepy to  watch longer.  "Then would come another day,  another sixteen hours of sunshine,  until at Inst tho gold of the grain  field matched tho gold in the wos't  when the long day died. It is not  only interesting, it i.s really wonderful to watch this emerald sea springing from thc sod, ripening to grain  to be ground to flour and mado into  bread that will feed millions of men.  "So, as I said hefore, we are all  gamblers. It is only a question of  degree and tho relative respectability  of the bank wc buck. I gambled  when I planted that 400 acres to  wheat. I won, and my lato neighbor is at this moment preparing- four  thousand acres for crop in 1905. If  I had lost, perhaps ho would not  have risked so much, but I won,  threshing out 16.8S0 bushels, for  which I received $13,50--.  "That half section attracted as  much attention as thc winner in a  selling race. I had scarcely sold my  last load of wheat, when a Minnesota man camo and tempted mo with a  offer of ten dollars an acre. It was  a foolish thing to do, but I took the  money. The place was becoming altogether too civilized, and to add to  my troubles tho locating engineers  were sotting stakes along my north  line. I shall long remember how wo  sat down, Lena and 1, to 'figure up  our fortune. After paying for seed  and seeding, for some new building,  for reaping, threshing and marketing my grain, 1 had to tho credit of  this account 5511,740. The profit on  the land transaction brought the  total up to .Slvi.-'IL. Against this I  suffered a less of SHtfl on implements bought and sold, leaving a  net profit for mv summer's watering  of  813,710.  "I askod Lena again, if she wanted to go home, and she said nothing,  but smiling shook her head slowly,  looking at the cheques in my hand  and the figures on a slip of paper  that told the simple story of our  summer's work. As wc sat there  trying to realize how it felt to be  'rich,' one. of my men drove up. He  had been down to Davidson to have  the shoes pulled from a pair of  horses I kept for. driving and had  swung round by 'HanIcy for tho mail.  He handed me a letter. I instantly  recognized my mother's hand upon  the envelope. I opened it and found  first a New York draft for a thousand dollars. The sighfof thi.s  draft .drove all the happiness out of  my heart and^Hooded my soul with  the old bitterness that J had hoped  was  passed.  "PresentlyfAl read the letter, the  first that 1 had received from liome.  It was full of the deathless mother  love that survives so often when all  else perishes. Slie begged ine to return, to'bring Lena and ihe haby  anc! make our home with them. My  father,  she said,   would  be only     t-no  butod his silence to tho impressive  scene. Presently I noticed that his  glance was leveled at the ranch  house. I asked what interested him  and he said he saw a new object in  tho corral, and whon a few minutes  later we turned in at the gate we  found a strange craft in port. It  proved to be a buckboard. "I  thought so," said Sanderson, lifting  a nos.e-bag from tho back of the  rig.   It  was marked  "G.   T.  P."  "I thought so," ho repeated, moro  to himself than to me. "They have  routed mo from tho lied Rivor and  again from Portago Plains, driven  me from the "bad lands," sought me  out Saskatchewan and I presume  they will follow me to tho Peace and  finally push mo to thc Paciiic, just  as the buffalo and tho Indian have  beon pushed."  Whilo we were still discussing them  the Pathfinders, four of them, came  up from the river. Tho chief of tho  Party introduced himself. They had  passed through a month ago, ho  said, but found nobody nt home.  "I've been anxious to see you,"  said the chief, "for, unless we spoil a  sixty-mile tangent, we must nsk you  to let us move your houso over  about lifty feet."  "Ceitainly," said Sanderson, and  for tho life of mc I could not say  whether lie was joking or in earnest.  Tlio engineer was obviously embarrassed but managed to thank our  host. "O, don't mention it," said  Sanderson, as he led the way to the  house.    "It's no   trouble  at  all."  Now hero were half a dozen half  starved men, not to mention my boy  and Sanderson's boy for Lena to  feed, but she met her husband and  his hungry 'guests with a happy  smile cnnd in half an hour wa.s making us welcome at her good table.  It was no trouble, as Sanderson said  wlien they nsked him to move his  house. ,  "Good-byo, Sanderson." snid I,  "this hns been a, pleasant visit here,  and when the road is open I'll drop  in on you again. There'll "be a town  here at the crossing,  I fancy."  "Oh. yes," he said,   "there'll bo   a  town,  but I  won't  he here.

I  washed both garments in clear  water, without a particle of soap,  and after passing through threo  -waters, to my surprise every stain  of the dressing disappeared.  Now sho could got along without  tho blouso, but 1 did not sco ��������� how  sho could dispense, with the skirt.  Irons coulil not be obtained, and so  I had to set my wits to work. I  washed the skirt through an additional water, took it oui without  wringing it, and with my hands  smoothed the pleats in place and  pinned it to the line by safety pins  through the belt. It dried in a fow  hours (thero was a strong wind  blowing, and bright sunshine) and  when I took it in, no one would have  guessed tliat an iron liad not touched it,; and better still, it had not  shrunken one bit, ns it had beon in  cold  water only.  my     section   in  came over here  shadow  of  the   I'i  and  ig.h  when I saw- Lena I looked right at  her and she looked at me.

Of  course. I was not notified when Lena  got her notice. I came home one  evening and found a new parlor  maid. I was foolish enough to ask  at dinner what had become of Lena.  Between the frowns of ray father  and the sharp, dark glances of my  mother, I gathered that it was not  my business. I knew no rest that  night.

One of the most delicious of French  vegetable dishes is potatoes prepared  with cheese, but it is so delicious  that it is fast becoming almost as  well  known hero in America.  And potatoes aro so staple a thing  ���������so necessary a part of every day's  meals, that the pleasant blending of  cheese and po'ato is a change that is  almost  piquant. "  After six or seven potatoes havo  boiled until they nro mealy, mash  them as smooth as possible, adding  a couple oi tablespoonfuls of butter,  salt and pepper, and enough hot  milk to mako them quito soft.

"He wants a pane o' windy-glass  tin inches by foorteon," said Patrick  one day, as ho entered a shop where  his employer, a master carpenter  traded.  In the shop was a young clerk,  who never missed a chance for a little joko at tho Irishman's expense.-  "Jf wo haven't any ten-by-four-  teens," hc said, "1 may have to givo  you a fourteen-by-len."

CIULDPEN'S WORKING. HOURS.  Important physiological experiments liave been made in Russia to  test the endurance of school-children.  The results prove that in th'e lower  four' classes study may bc continued  for a period not exceeding twenty-  two or twenty-seven hours per week,  but that., excessive fatigue results  from longer continuance of brain  work. ''Ih'is time for. teaching the������o  classes has been fixed by the, latest  olher ' 01'(,c'r of the Ministry of Public Instruction. It" i.s urged, however,  that this should bc tho outside limit, nnd thnt no lessons should bo  studied at home.  King Edward is never conventional  when he can avoid being so with satisfaction to himself and thoso  around nim. His Majesty is particularly individual in regard to hiB  tastes in food, and has many peculiarities in this respect which aro  known to few beyond his intimate  friends.  Por example, thc King is very fond  of his afternoon tea, and having a  sweet tooth, as Queen Victoria liad,  likes to see confectionery on the  table. But it is not so well known  that His Majesty never by any  chanco partakes of butter, and that,  moreover, he nover takes tea made  with anilk, but in tho Russian fashion, with a pie.eo of lemon instead.  'Sir. nil a rly he has a spocial way of  his own of niaKIng codec, or, rather,  it is tho wny of his own particular  colTeo-mnker, Ibrahim, a dark-skinned  Turk, with whoso skill in this particular, department of kitchen work  His Majesty, was at the fir&'t experience so pleased that lie brought him  homo with him from ono of his journeys abroad, and installed him in  the Royal housohold to do nothing  else but make tho King's coffeo. So  indispensable is Ibrahim, to the King  that h'o is often taken abroad with  liim. His method of making  THE KIND'S COFFEE  is as follows: First of all the water  is boiled, and then the coffeo is put  in and allowed to "infuse." Ibrahim  then warms it again until th'o coffee  grounds "rise to tho top. tuna over,  and descend." The grounds are then  allowed to settle, and finally Ibrahim pours off the liquid with a  flourish of his long, dark arm, the  coffee as he makes it in this way boing superb.  Another  peculiarity  of  the    King's  taste is for the German black bread  which  is    known  ns   "schwarzbrot."  It has beon a favorite with him for  many years;     but it    is an acquired  tasto and needs much assiduous   cultivation,  for    the person who tastes  it for  tho  first   tiniio  feels  that     ho  would  never    care    to  do  so  again.  Howevor,  two varieties  of rye bread  baked  in    thc    German    fashion are  regularly supplied by a Gorman firm  in the City of London for His    Majesty's use.    Ono variety has a large  proportion  of Vienna  flour added to  the rye meal, and in tho case of this  bread tho peculiar .sour flavor is not  so  noticeable,     llcgiliners  who    wish  to   train   themselves   to   eating   "scli-  warzbrot"    usually    begin   with     it.  Put it is the real "schwarzbrot," thc  genuine sour black bread, which' most  frequently     (inds     its     way    to    the.  King's table,  and His Majesty  THOROUGHLY  EN*.IOYS  IT.  T'hc King is a great lover of salad,  and has  a particular  preference    for  one    spocial    preparation  of hearted  lettuce   or    romainc    to any others.  The best French cooks say that lettuce   of     this   kind,   being   naturally  protected   by   its   manner   of    growth  from thc intrusion  of dust or insects  should     not  bo   washed,   but merely  stripped carefully leaf-by leaf,     and  wiped with    a perfectly  cloun  cloth.  A small  quantity of Gruyere cheese,  wliich_. -has      been    cut   into     short  leng-ths    like tho    vegetables in julienne soup, is then scattered over tho  salad,  and    in    this way the precise  flavoring  which  His  Majesty  prefers  is given to tho salad.  Ono of tho King's favorite dishes  at the dinner-table i.s a minute chicken on a morsel of toast. Thoso  littlo "poussius," ns they aro called  by the poulterer, yield but two or  three niouthfuis of delicate, white  flesh, and in London thoy aro retailed at such high prices thnt they are  a rare dainty. Nevertheless, in the  West of Ireland thoy are sold by  barefooted peasant girls, who charge  only Od.  each for them.   f   STRANGE  LIBRARY.

He wns born in Alsace, Franco, in  a township 1111101% tho mountains,  \ery near the Gorman boundary, for  he. has often told mo that thoy spent  thoir long winter evenings in making  torches of fat pine, which they sold  iu tho German villages, that lay m!-  jacont to thcm. It- struck mo as peculiar, why ho had sucli an intense  hatred of tho Germans: he did not  like them, their hnbits, or their  language. If tho same feeling prevails among thc peasantry of  Alsace now, as did when Joo was a  boy, it will bo a long time before  they become Germanized. His father was a farmer. This does not  convey to our minds what farming  meant in that country. A man owning and working ten acres of land,  was lookod upon ns a large farmer,  whilo a man owning from two to  five acres, was also looked upon, as  quite a respectable proprietor. Joe's  father owned five acres, every inch of  which was cultivated by hand labor,  and .brought up to the highest condition of fertility.  Their main dependence for money  was from the product of thoir cows,  cheeso being a principal article of  commerce /among them, consequently  great attention was paid to their  stock.  Their houso was a long, 0110-storied stone structure, solidly built, so  ns to protect them from the intense  cold in winter, and heat in summer;  as the mountain dislrict in which  they lived, was in a vory high altij  Jaidc. One half of the building was  used as a stable for their cows. This  seems strnnye to us in Canada, but  no people could bo moro scrupulously clean, and as much attention was  paid to thc care of their stock as to  themselves.  Tho circumstances surrounding  these people, caused thorn to exercise  the greatest frugality, not a scrap of  anything was allowed to go to waste  but everything was utilized for some  purpose; nearly nil th'eir clothing  was homo-macio,  coarse and strong.  Tho people themselves were large  and robust, henlthy and vigorous.  Joo himself stood about six feet,  and was a vcry strong man. ,,Ho  wns well educated in his own language, and in tin's country he learned  to read tho English well, and speak  it fluently. Ho wns a Roman Catholic, but very liberal in his views;  he knew the Pible well, and told mo  they were, all taught to read it in  tho vernacular. " He would refer  with great feeling to his first communion, nnd speak of it. as the one  great event in the lives of the young  peoplo in that part of France. The  priest would spend a gren^. deal of  time in preparing the candidate for  tliis solemn sacrament of tlity church,  and judging from tho influence it had  on ,lo&'g after lifo, lasting impressions must have beon made on their  uiincis,   as  to  eternal  thinjjs.  Joe was honest and upright, strictly truthful, and trustworthy, and  with all the vivacity of a Frenchman, yet realized fully tho responsibilities of this life and the issues of  tho future one. Notwithstanding all  the doctrinal differences, that exist  between us protestants and catholics,  I tliink, judging from what hc said  to me, in speaking of his own experience, that the rural population  of old France, at tho time ho was a  lad. woro greatly blessed by the fostering care of the church, and whore  lhc priest himself was a good man,  he became to them a true spiritual  guide, an authority on everything  affecting their temporal interests, in  all questions of doubt and difficulty,  end his opinion would settle tho  matter. Theft wns unknown. In  ��������� Joe's opinion, th'o confessional was  the restraining power against all  kinds of secret sins, because as good  catholics they had to confido to tho  ���������prhst-1 heir��������� inner- lives;������������������When���������-a*  young man. nnd before the fall of  Bonaparte, ho enlisted in tho cavalry  service, and was stationed, with his  troop at Navey. tho chief town of  thc district, and here tho romance of  his life begins. Ho was in tho habit  of going to a certain wino shop in  the city, and spending his evenings  there when off duty, tho proprietress  of which' was a young widow. Joe  became greatly enamoured with hcr,  and nfter a short courtship, th'ey  were married. He wns not long in  discovering sho had contracted a desire for stimulants, and this grew so  rapidly upon her. she soon became a  confirmed inebriate. Ho fought on  with tljp situation as best ho. could  for somo littlo time, but eventually  a tragedy occurred, which' put an end  to nil domestic happiness. They had  one child at the time', a littlo girl,  and the mother had boon in the  habit of-putting th'o cradle on tho  table, and in spite of Joe's remonstrance, who realized the danger, she  persisted, and: the result was th'at  one day the predicted accident occurred, and the chiltPwas killed. Joe  was passionately fond of children  and this sad event brought about a  change in his ideas of tho future.  The episode was tlio one first dark  blot in what afterwards proved to  be. in hia lot, a sky of gloom and  misfortune. OK, wino, how many  crimes can be laid to thy charge;  how many broken hearts, and shattered lives art" thou responsible for?  Dut what was to be done? Ho had  a cousin who emigrate,! to Canada,  and filially settled at CoboiitK; with  him lic opened o correspondence told  him the position of affairs, and asked liis advice. Now this is ono part  of the narrative that to mc i.s quite  uncxplainnblo. Mo wrote thnt liquor  could not bo obtained in Canada,  nnd advised poor Joo to try his fortuno hero. What could havo boen his  object in such gross deception, 1 cannot  imagine,   but such It wa������.    '   It  mny have been a desire for companionship of ouo of his countrymen,  but. whatever influenced him to per-  suude Joo to come to Canada, it  was a disastrous step, and dreadful consequences followed. The  recommendation of his cousin finally  decided him to pull up his stakes in  the old land, to leave his father, and  mother, and family, the associations  and companions among whom his life  had been spent, and set out across  the trackless ocean to an unknown  land, for the sake of rescuing tlie  wife to whom ho had plighted his  troth* wilh the bright hope that he  might rescue her from tho demon of  appetite, into whoso clutches she had  fullcn. Having onco determined upon this course, tho first thing he  had to do, was to get a discharge  from the military service, and this  was not obtained without some difficulty. His father paid him what  would have been his share of tho paternal estate, when it would have  teen ultimately divided: witli,a portion of this h'e bought his discharge  from the army. The last farewells  woro said to the dear ones there  nnd Joe started on his momentous  journey to the' now world, and they  arrived safely in tlie promised land  about 1840, *I think.  How bitterly and deeply must he  have felt the disappointment to his  hopes for his wife, when he found  that whiskey was everywhere used  withoout let or hindrance, and sold  at twenty-five cents a quart, and  here wo cannot help but feel a deep  sympathy for poor Joe.  The first move was to find a house  in which to live, and then to seek  employment. They wore foreigners  in a strange Tu'nd and what became  of tho cousin I do not know. I  never remember Joe alluding to him  after he arrived in Cobourg. But as  so often havpens to us poor  mortals- here, a gleans of sunshine  shono through tho thick darkness  surrounding  him.*  Joe learned that Colonel Covert, a  rich man, who hail beon educated in  France, was living a few miles east  of tho town known throughout the  district ns kind and liberal, to his  dependants, and generous to tho  poor and needy who sought his aid.  Joe  always   spoko  feelingly   of     the  sentation, or through some of the  Cobourg people, who had the same  feeling, representations were made  to the government, and the sentence  was commuted to imprisonment for  life. What a sad change to the picture. Leaving his own land a few  years before, full of hopo and  strength, and now a manacled convict. And what is the underlying  cause of tho change? Strong drink  could bo painted on every step of the  way. For fifteen years h'e remained  in tho penitentiary. By his invariable good conduct ho gained the confidence of tho warden, and tho othor  officials, so tho hardships of confinement wore somewhat mitigated. Ho  was largely employed about the  grounds, of" which work he was passionately fond. He beenmo gradually habituated to prison life, and thus  tho days passed peacefully on. He  at times would speak most earnestly  on thc kindness shown by the Roman Catholic chaplain of the prison.  Hc used to say tho one privation ho  felt worst 'of all while there, was his  tobacco, of which he was very fond;  and, if h'e ever was guilty of violating any of tho 'rules, it was while  surreptitiously obtaining the coveted  weed, and for which he would run  the risk of discovery, and the consequence that would follow. I  learned from what h'e told me in frequent conversations with him about  it that a very lax state of discipline  prevailed at the' 'time. Whether  Joe's views were correct or not, one  thing is certain, that the matter  was taken up b.v Parliament and a  commission was issued appointing  tho late Hon. Mr. Dorion and the  Hon. G. G. Brown to investigate and  report on the condition- and management of the penitentiaries and  prisons in Ontario and Quebec.  I mention this because it had an  important bearing on poor Joe's future. : His case came under their  consideration, and so convinced were  they, of his innocence, and the injustice of his sentence, that they recommended his dismissal; and then  our poor old friend Joe, was cast  upon the world to make his way as  best, he could. Stripped of everything, his reputation gono, no means  to help himself, it is littlo wonder  that ho foil  a    victim  to  the latent  kindness shown to thorn by the Col- lire of strong dririli that still exist-  onel. He gave employment to him | ed, only wanting a spark to call the  at   once.     Ho   would   walk  regularly   fiery   monster    again  into existence.  Intemperance    became his  to his work thore on Monday and  return on Saturday. This he did  for somo time, always boing faithful at his work, anxious that he  should succeed and provide a homo  for his family. 'But this was not to  be. Soon tlio muttorings of the  coining storm fell upon his oar. His  wife, a sharp and clever woman  soon found tho means of obtaining  intoxicants, and for tlie gratification  of th'o unholy appetite, she was willing to - sacrifice honor, and everything that a woman should hold  dear. I should not say willing, for  Cod knows how she may have struggled against the monster into whose  grasp slie had fallen.  Coming homo on Saturday evening  ho found sho had boen in a prolonged  stale of intoxication. Things went  from bad to worse, nothing could  restrain her, she would sell every  article in thc houso, if necessary, to  obtain tho means of gratifying this  intense craving of the physical disease. And here, comes in the strangest thing of all, in connection with  it. It never entered into Joe's  mind that he could become the victim of the same curse.  Drunkenness a hundred years ago  was little known in rural France.  The common wines of the country  woro used as an ordinary beverage,  stronger liquors were rarely touched.  Had his wife not kept a wine shop,  where brandy and stronger liquors  wero sold, tho chances aro sho never  would have become nn inebriate;  however, Joe commenced taking a  littlo now and then. Ho gradunlly  bocamo fond of it, but nt this time,  was not a habitual drinker; it followed naturally, when ho would  como home, after a hard week's  labor, finding her intoxicated, he  would become incensed, and angry  quarrels would follow. Like all  French peoplo they were very excitable and noisy talkers. Those living  near^soon^looked^uponJh'em^as^an.  annoyance, in tho neighborhood.  But tlio culmination was not long  in tho futuro. Returning to his home  ono Saturday night, h'e found things  in tho usual state, recriminations  followed, and their noisy quarrel was  hoard by the neighbors. This latter  roct had a bearing on what subsequently fol'owcd. Joe's statement  to mo o\-or and over again, as to  the ovonts of the night, and wliich I  believe to bo true, woro that sho  fell, that he picked hor up. placod  her on tho bod, which they had, in  the lower part of tho house, ho took  tho little girl with him upstairs to  tho room above, and slept there during tho night. In tho morning if  was found that the unfortunate woman had passed over "that bourne  from which no traveller returns."  Joo's arrest speedily followed, a coroner's inquest.' brought in a verdict  of murder, nnd th'o poor Frenchman  was handed over to th'e jail authorities to await, tho coming assizes.  Ono of the most" eminent judges of  the . time; tho late Chief Justice  Draper, occupied the bench. But  everything was sadly against poor  Joo, a stranger, friendless, not able  to speak the language, the noisy  quarrels so frequently hoard by the  neighbors, told heavily against him.  But upon what grounds the jury  foun'd him guilty I do not know; but  th'o sad fact followed that "guilty"  was the fatal word pronounced by  tho fornian of tho jury, and in due  courso the awful sentence of "death"  followed. I asked Joe what his feelings woro whilo that dread sentence  hung over his head. He said it  never cost hiin a bit of anxiety. He  knew ho wns not guilty, ho did not  fear physical death, and ho had no  dread of tho future. Hn could say  with Shakespeare, "only a gullty  consclonco makes cowards of us." I  believe Justico Draper himself was  not satisfied ar. to the justico of the  verdict, and cither through' his repre-  one fatal  temptation which followed him to  tho ond.  How was he to obtain a decent  living, having the brand of a convict. Ho naturally drifted to Cobourg, and it shows that some of the  people had pity for tho unfortunate,  for hc obtained employment there.  Hero let me go back for a. while.  Tho little girl that was left both  fatherless and motherless for whom  Joe's affection was most Intense,  was cared for and perhaps received a  better training and education, ��������� making her better fitted for a life of future usefulness and happiness, than  if sho had been raised in a home degraded as theirs must necessarily  have been. Again the goodness of  Colonel Covert to his humble' servant is shown, as evidently tho do-  tiny of the littlo child was to him  a matter of anxiety. One of his  daughters, Mrs. Moffatt. (whose husband was at the time' a member of  tho firm of Moffat, Murray and Co.,  Toronto), took hor and trained her  as a domestic servant. During the  time that Joe lived with me his one  great anxiety- was to see lier. his  only child. I remember once, of his  having heard a rumor that an old  acquaintance uf his at Newcastle had  heard of her whereabouts, and he  could- not rest - till he went down  there, and exhausted every effort to  got trace of her. The desire to sco  her again seemed to grow in intensity year by year. This yearning of  his heart was never gratified. At his  request we wrote to tho lady in Toronto, who at once kindly and  promptly replied, stating that she  had left her years before, and did  not know where she had gone, but  understood that sho had married,  and settled in some part of the province. Perhaps as well the poor, old  soul never saw hcr: it could only  have been a disappointment to both.  rAfter__Ieavihgl.Cobourg._hc_.went.  Ito  say h'e had no taste for the beautiful, in either nature or art. He know  nothing about tho cultivation of  fruit trees, and as for flowers thoy  wero an abonunation to him. Indeed,  anything that could not bo usefully  used and that in tho growth' of  which time and labor was expended,  was to his mind a sinful waste. This  want ot the imagination, I presume,  grow out of tho conditions surrounding his early years, whero the hard  struggle to exist prevented th'o cultivation of anything of higher  tastes. But in spite of every influence, he would occasionally get on a  fearful spree, and then his dearly  earned wages wont for thnt which  men put in their mouths to steal  away their  brains.  My story will now soon_be told.  When I moved into my present residence Joe left me, and engaged himself with a farmer up the Ban line,  but soon became dissatisfied, and  thus debility attendent on old age,  he came back to town and took a  room in a house near us. Ho gradually broke up, but always managed  to come to us, needless to say, tho  wholo household took pleasure in  ministering to his wants. "When he  fully realized that his ond was approaching, a burning desire took possession of his heart, that he might  again revisit his native land, and bo  buried with his ancestors in the  France that he so dearly loved.  To accomplish this purposo ho had  saved some little means, sufficient to  pay his passage homo. Finally the  parting* camo. : It seemed almost  impossible for him to' tear himself  away. One could not but bo touched  with the tenderness of his nature,  exhibited in the last parting scene.  The bus man was impatiently waiting in the road; he camo back four  or five times to say "good-byo. God  bless you.". I went with him to the  railway train, saw him into the car,  and I am sure it would have molted  the heart cf a stone to seo the poor  old man, a shadow of his former self,  standing, feeble and. decrepit, the  tears streaming down his cheeks,  saying "farewell, farewell," and thus  my humble friend passed out of our  sight into the dark unknown. Peace  to your aches dear old Joe. I do  not think he over reached his destination. It may seem o'dd, why ��������� I  should uay this tribute to his memory. Few will recall him, and the  greater part who may read these  lines, could havo no interest in his  fate. Dc not the "foot-prints of the  poor and lowly, leave in thc sands  of time, impressions fraught with as  great moral lessons, as those of the  learned nnd rich?" I think thoy do,  ond cortainlv this story points n.  moral, if it does not adorn a tale.  A trite saying but truo. "facts- are  often stranger than fiction."

The London Times says: Wc take  the following extracts from a letter  addressed to us by Mr. Walter Malcolmson. who adimadverts upon  statements made byx Mr. Walter  James, Agent-General for Western  Australia, in tho Times of March 4.  Writing- from Marino Parade, Holy-  rood, near Belfast, Mr. Malcolmson  says:  "Tho Western Australian laws at  present in force not only permit  slaver:,-, but make it compulsory.  Tbey also allow any half-caste or  aboriginal chilo, having attained a  suitable age, to bo apprenticed to  anyone wanting him, for any purpose, until 21 years old. Eight or  nine years is generally 'a suitable  ag-c' in the eyes of tho employer. Ask  the consent of thc parents of the  child? They are only beasts of burden, unworthy of the slightest consideration.  "Mr. James says, 'Dr. Roth's report discloses abuses of which! the  Government had no knowledge.' I  deny this. I can submit indisputable  evidence to prove that the Govern-  ment wero thoroughly woll informed:  on tho matter.  ."Mr. James says, 'The objectionable practices-have been isolated, and  have occurred where closo and regular police supervision is impossible..'  This, in face of Dr. Roth's report  that 'tho polico roceivo payment fbleach prisoner or witness, and consequently arrest thc natives on tho  slightest pretext, and starve- and  beat them.' And .Mr. James' remedy  is 'more police supervision.'  "Mr. James says, 'Por years past  there has beon a chief protector or  aborigines.' 'Mr, Pinsep lias proved  utterly  unlit  to  protect  the natives  think Joe wns some two years with  that gentleman. I had about a year  previously moved to "The Evergreens," (now the residence of J.  W. Alexander Esq., president of tho  Dominion Organ and Piano Company) and Joe hearing I was in want  of a man applied; the offer of wages  I made him was accepted and he  came to rae. At this time he must  have boen a pretty old man, sixty-  five years of age, but strong and  vigorous. He remained with roe  during th'e eleven years/that I resided there. He was an incessant .talker, had no hesitation, but seamed always anxious to speak about the  past. How can I recount His many  virtues? I said before, strictly  truthful, trustworthy, cheerful, kind  to every living thing that he came  in contact with. Nothing aroused  him to a white heat of passion, as  cruelty in any form. His affection  wns most particularly manifested to  children. It was really touching at  times, to seo the tender core, he took  of thi little ones, that might be  placotTin his charge, and.if any of  tho servants in tho house undertook  to speak rudely or touch roughly a  child, if Joo were around they had  to pay the penalty. He fully appreciated any kindness shown him,  and never forgot any of his benefactors. He was a splendid gardener  Ho seemed to liavo a magic power  to make things grow, but strange to  he wrote:  '1 tun say, as an impartial infjn,  I that for .many years  past   the  treatment of the- natives has been od.o of  generous       consideration     for      their  heirless and'    Ignorant state.' Dr.  Roth, after a few weeks spent in  West Australia, reports abiiw.������ to  which Professor Pinsep has remained  officially blind for years.  "I will finish* by asking MJ.\ James  why Ernest AY.. Anderson ��������� was released from jail���������secretly���������r'iost year,  after serving about six years of his  lifo sentence. Chief Jusy.ico Onslow,  in sentencing Anderson,/ said, 'Your  crime is nothing but a deli berate,  brutal, base, and cruet1 [murder of a  man and two women, and the inhuman flogging of more girls besides.' In sentencing him for life,  the judgo said ho trusted that in  Anderson's caso 'the sentence would  not ibo roducod to one of twenty  years.

Attack   Always     Sudden,     Sometimes Making Men Helpless  in a Few Moments.  Tho address on influenza delivered  beforo tho Huntcrian society recently  by Dr. Thomas 0. Allbutt, professor  of medicine at Cambridge university,  continues to bo a leading topic of  discussion nmong medical men in  England.  Dr. Allbutt declared influenza travels by express trains, and showed  how in tho spread of epidemics thoso  towns wore attacked lirst at wliich  through trains stopped, whilo the  smaller places served only by slow  trains were spared until later. Just  as the Ganges was the home of cholera so northern China was the homo  of influenza, and tho opening of the  Trnnssiborian railway had facilitated the spread of the disease in the-  great epidemic of 1889.  BROUGHT TO  AMERICA.  Bokhara was tho point of dissemination into Europe, whence it followed the three trade routes. It  reached New York from England in  just the time taken by the fastest  steamer running thon.  Dr. Allbutt believed only those  cases wore infectious in which the  respiratory organs were implicated.  Occasionally, lie said, infection could  be carried for a few. days about by  clothes. Children were not liable to  the disease, and If they did catch it  they soon recovered. The onset was  sudden and sometimes exceedingly so.  A man riding past the professor's  house was stricken so suddenly with  influenza that He fell off his horso.  "Sir William Broadbcat," said the  speaker, '-'has told me of a patient  who drove in at one gate of a park  perfectly well and was prostrated by  influenza boforo lie reached th'o opposite gate."  NEW TYPE OF THE DISEASE.  The lecturer drew attention to a  new type of tho disease which he  .cr.Ilcd "continued influenza." During  convalescence all . tho special sensations were affected. Thus he himself  was fond of music, but after an attack of influenza lie went to a concert  and could not imagine how anybody  could enjoy such noise. At the end  of on hour of boredom ho came out,  yet with' complete recovery his enjoyment of music came back suddenly and curiously enough together  with a renewed appetite for food.  Dr. Allbutt believed that the misery and depression which so often  follow influenza can be cut short by  n plain diet, of milk'and vegetables.  Affectionate, wives, ho" said, dose  their husbands with beef tea and  other things supposed to strengthen  but  these only  delay recovery.  It will be good news for sufferers  that Prof. Allbutt asserts one attack of influenza -confers immunity  for a period of six months against  another.  MICROBES GO THROUGH AIR.  Dr. FrariklinTarsons- showed liow  easily a microbe could bc carried'  through the air. A public speaker  with influenza could spread microbes  into liis audience for a distance of  forty feet. He indicated by a skillful uso of curves that the type of  disease hod changed und. instead of  disappearing for lonpr intervals, now  was constantly in the midst of tho  people, and, in fact, had become.-  what is termed endemic.   . f   PRINCE TO_VISIT INDIA  HEIR TO   THRONE TO REPEAT  HIS   FATHER'S   TOUR.  Arrangements    Are   Already    Well  Under Way for   the  Visit.  The arrangements for the visit of  the Princo and Princess of Wales to  India will, it is expected, provide for  their Royal Highnesses arriving in  India in November, and remaining  there until about March,   1006.  So far as tho time at their com-  mand will allow, tho Princo and  Princess will visit the principal cities  of tho great Eastern dependency, including nil those of tho more important native slates.  The Viceroy, Lord Curzon of Kod-  lestono, will, of courso, as tho representative of tho Emperor of India,  receive the royal visitors on their  arrival. ������  In tho courso of the tour his Royal  Highness will hold receptions of  thoso native princes nnd rulers who  exercise their authority under the  supremo authority of the British  Crown. Levees will be held, at which  there will be presented to the Prince  the most distinguished personages in  King Edward's Eastern dominions.  KING EDWARD'S  VISIT.  It is thirty years ago, almost to  the month, that the Indian tour of  the Prince of Wales,'now King Ed-  ward: VIL, was announced- Curiously  onough,. the- contemplated journey  provoked a great' outcry in- Great  Britain.  On July 17,. 1875,. a demonstration  was hold in Hyde Park to protest  against the grant of money which  was then being proposed in Parliament to defray the expenses of the  tour, Mr. Fawcett, afterwards- the  blind Postmaster-General1,, objected  to tho vote,, partly on sentimental  and partly on economical! grounds.

The pupils of his eyes respond to  ligWi, his heart action is regular and  sus'.allied, although somewhat weak,  an*.I his breathing is normal.  Nearly  overy    prominent  doctor  in  tf'ho city hus seen this man, but none  'can  explain  the    phenomenon  ill  any  other    way    thnn    as nn  unhoard-of  freak of insanity.  One day In thu fall of 1002 he  wns seen to bc acting strangely In  Chestnut street, near Thirteenth. Ho  wns walking rapidly down Chestnut  street, when he came to a cloud stop  and stood for fii'leeii minutes. A  policeman approached him and told  him to move on, but lie did not stir.  The exasperated policeman rang for  a patrol wagon.; but he could not induce tlio sphinx to stop into it when  it arrived. It was necessary to tip  him ovor, pick hinr tip as though ho  woro a log und lay him In tho bottom of the wagon.  At the hospital he spoko rapidly  and timorously for tho last time.  Apparently ho was afraid h'o might  bo.overheard.  "Almighty told me not to move,  not to speak," h'e said. "I'll ��������� be  dammed if I do."  Once they tried to frighten him by  rushing into the room, where he lies  and crying "Fire!" But ho did not  stir. Ho has listened with tho utmost imperturbability to a party of  doctors suggesting that it would bo  advisablo to cut him to pieces.  A bit of ice pressed to his temple  with tho command, "Spook, or I'll  shoot!" was equally futile. He has  to be fed by artificial means, because  he refuses to  open his  mouth'.  "T'he only thing I know of that  will evor malto him move or speak,"  said tho doctor, "is another divine  command. If lie gets it, and if h'e  o-beys it as iinplicity as hc has obeyed the last one, tho problom of perpetual motion will be solved."-  T'he Prince of Wales took out ������40,^  OOO worth of: presents,, to be distributed amongst the Oriental princes  whom he brought in contact.

BRINDISI.  The Princo of Wales started fromi:  London: on llth October,, 1875,.  immense popular interest being taken  in tho event-. Huge crowds, assembled:  long boforo the- departure of tha  special' traini from Charing Cross,  and the Princo and Princess.. weire  wildly cheered. -T'he Princess went  as-, far as Calais. Tho Prince embarked  on tho Sornpis at Brindisi.  He spent a few days ab Athens, visiting the King  of  Greece,  and,  after  a short stay in  Egypt,  the    trooper  ' mado straight for Bombay.  Amongst the cargo of tho Serapis  Were thrca valuable horses, selected  from the Marlborough House stables,  which had been regularly tak*n ' to  the Zoo in order to become accustomed to the nights of the wilci beasts  and reptiles, which they wove likely  to  meet  in  India.  POMP AND CEREMONIAL.  The Princo arrived out in time to  celebrate his birthday inlndia. Some  idea of tho pomp of the ceremonial  attaching to his visit can be had  when it is mentioned tliat he sat on  a silver throno to receive tho native  princes and rajahs who flocked to  present their respects in person.  _..The._first. potentate _presented was.  flic Rajah of Khholapur. a child"  twelve years old, tho ruler of nearly  a million of people. The little rajah  was attired in purple velvet and  white muslin encrusted with gems  bio turban containing a king's ransom of pearls and rubies.  It was a terribly hot day, and  though the reception was held at 8  a.m., the Princo was commiserated  upon having to wear an English uniform of cloth loaded with laco "and  buttoned up to his throat."  REVIEW AT POONA.  In November his Royal Highness  visited Poona, whero he held a review  from the back of an elephant of extraordinary size; thc howdah on  which ho sat. cost four lakhs of  rupees.  ITo attended a cheetah hunt, killing  ta fine buck, and earned his spurs at  wild boar chasing by killing an animal   with  is own  spear.  Christmas Was spent in Calcutta,  and on New Year's Day ho hold a  chapter of the Order of tho Star of  India. His Royal Highness woro a  field-marshal's uniform, almost concealed beneath the folds of his sky-  bluo mantle. The chapter tent was  carpeted  with cloth  of gold.  THE FINDING   OF TIMOLEEN.  "I am sure this is tho most dreadful birthday any little girl ever  had!" said Mildred, as she and Aunt  Judith stood before the stove in a  dingy littlo station far away in  British Columbia.  Tho train had been three hours  late. It was past eleven, and pouring in torrents.  "Can you get us a carriage?" asked Aunt Judith of the sleepy-looking  station-master.  "Not to-night, ma'am."  "How  far is it to tho village?"-  "Ner.rly  threo  miles,  ma'am."  "Three" miles from tho village, rain,  wind ~and Egyptian darkness! Not a  very pleasant prospect for a walk!"  laughed  Aunt  Judith.  "O aunty, what over in the world  shall' we do?" cried Mildred.  "Stay here all night, I suppose,"-  said Aunt Judith, who had travelled  alb over Europe and Asia, and was  never daunted by any 01 dinary difficulty.  "Yes, ma'am," said tho station-  master, "that's just what you'll  have- to- do. It is not very comfortable here,, but at any rate there will  bo a- roof over your bead, and that's  a great thing  on  a night  like this."  There were two rickety settees in  the-room- Aunt Judith made a nest  of shawls upon one of them for Mildred; and settled herself upon the  other.. Soon the south-bound train  steamed noisily in, but left no passengers; and when it had gone, the  station-master took his hat and coat  and the lantern and went out, saying  he would return at six in tho morning. '  "O aunty," cried Mildred, "he has  left us in, the dark!"  "Tho light from the stove , is  enough. We shall sleep all the better." said Aunt Judith.  "But, O aunty, he has locked the  door! Ho- has locked us in?" cried  'Mildred, in dismay.  ! "No matter," laughed Aunt Judith. "He will unlock us bright and  early to-morrow morning."  How the wind howled! How the  rain dashed against the windows!  Ono window had a broken pane, and  they could hear tho water dripping,  dripping, down tho wall  to the floor.  "Wliat a dreadful birthday!" sighed  Mildred.  Just then she heard a noise at tho  broken window and raised herself on  her elbow to listen. What could it  lie? Was it a tramp? Was it a  burglar?      Was  it  a  bear?  Again came the noise. First a  scratching, then a scrambling, and  then something small and whito  bounded into tho room, and jumped  up on Mildred, whining and licking  her hands.  Mildred sprang up with a sccetuu of  delight.  "Oh, j-ou darling, darling thing!  Oh, you sweet, dear wee bit of a  doggy! O Aunt Judith, did you  ever, ever see such a cinning littlo  doggy?"-  They carried him to tho stove and  examined him by tho faint light of  the  dying  coals.  "A vcry valuable silver Yorkshire,"  said_Aunt-_ J-Udith,  WEIGHT  OF  CHILDREN.  According to' the Lancet, well authenticated Instances of children  weighing ut birth as much as 131b.  aro of extreme rarity. Among 15,-  166 children born in Chrobak's Clinic  in Vienna, only one weighed 5,300  grammes (lljlb.); while in seven  years at the Clinic Baudelocque, in  Paris, there wero only six children  who oxcooded 5,000 grammes (111b.)  at birth, the largest weighing 6,150  grammes (13jlb.). Dubois, in 1897,  collected twenty-eight cases in which  the child weighed moro than 5,500  grammes (121b.) at birth, and stated  that tho heaviest children on record  weighed, respectively, 211b, Ooz.,.  241b.   2oz.,   nnd  231b.   12oz.  Sco hi.s  tiny black  nose and     his  littlo      pink      tongue." snid Mil  dred, "and just feel how soft  and silky ho i.s. And oh, do  look at his lovely sllvor collar and  his blue ribbon!"  "Perhaps wc shall find his owner's  name upon the collar," said Aunt  Judith. "ICecn still, you mite, and  Tit me soe."  But the collar bore only thc one  word,   "Timoleen."  Mildred was ^dancing with joy. "O  Timoleen, darling, you must havo  come to bo my birthday present!"  said she.  She fed him with bits of chicken  and cake from their lunCh-basket,  and then cuddled down in the shawls  again with him clasped tightly In her  arms. "What a perfectly beautiful  birthday!" said  she.  When tho station-master returned  in the morning he said that tho  Yorkshire must have belonged to  some one on the south-bound train,  and that probably inquiries would  bo made for him.  "But O my darling Timoleen! I  could never, never let him go!" cried  Mildred.  "Aro you going to -be, round here  long?"  "asked  thc  station-master.  "About a month," said Aunt Judith.      -"'*'..  "Well, then, missy, you had better  take the little dog along with you,  and ypu can leave me your address  in case any one inquires for him,"  said the station-master.  But no message over came from  thc Yorkshire's owner, and when  Mildred went back to Boston littls  Timoleen  went,  too.

The   extraordinary    position,   into  which  Sir .Wilfrid.Latii'icr has forced  the Liberal   party, would be amusing  were it   not   lamentably uu patriotic,  unconstitutional and dangerous.    We  . say  amusing,   because    tlio   Liberals  vaulted into  the Treasury benches, in  consequence of their loud and apparently sincere   advocacy of   Proviucial  Rights, as appertaining to Manitoba,  New Brunswick, Ontario, and Prince  Edward   Island, aud   just   as readily  cast   their  professions   to   the wind,  whensoever exigency demands.    But  there is too serious a side to the issue,  for it means  an   attempt to debauch  public opinion, to degrade, parliamentary life and to strangle constitutional  precedent.     Take,   for  instance,   the  supreme effort put forth by Sir Wilfrid Laurier and most of his colleagues  to  "throttle',' and   "coerce"   the new  North West Provinces ; nothing could  be more destructive to popular Government   than   the   violation   of   the  British North America Act.  Tlie Territorial Act of 1S75, so far as  parliament could commit the future,  established dissentient or denominational schools. A board of public  instruction was appointed by the  assembly, and in 1S02 a revision of the  school ordinances was sanctioned.  =AS-D_^Qttnev=vvsis^A.bis_=.doaes_t han^jjie.  "wrongs of the minority'' were paint-  *xl in tbe blackest of coloring. The  hierarchy were invoked, the passions  of Roman Catholics appealed lo and  the intolerance of tlie Protestant majority denounced in unmeasured  terms. At first this w.-us done secretly:  the poison was insidiously administered until sufficient excitement justified  a public demonstration. Kven Krenoh-  Cauadian Conservatives were for the  time being misled, many openly denouncing tlie Northwest school ordinance. On thc- 21st of March, 1801, the  Hon. '.Israel Tarte, in the house of  commons calted for "copies of the  oi'dinances, correspondence, petitions,  etc.," utilizing the opportunity by  making what might icasonably be  termed a flamboyant speech, stigmatizing the government of .Sir John  Thompson, for not disallowing the  WU. During the debate Mr. Tarte  said :  "We have seen that Mr. Haultain  has already stated that he would not  consent to amend the ordinances. The  government lias not disallowed the  law, but it has given inducements, it  has given what I may fairly call false  hopes to the Catholic and French minority, and so the agitation still con  -tinues."  The agitation continued, the Rev.  leather Le Due. in the name of the  late  venerable  Bishop   Crandin,   his|  grace the archbishop of Manitoba and  many othor dignitaries representing  tho minority, forwarded petitions to  His Excellency the Governor-General  (Lord Abeideen) expressing "the  grave subject of complaint of the  Catholics with regard to the last  school ordinance (1S92) in the Northwest Territories." Subsequent to this  in the autumn of 1S01, the Haultain  executive appealed to the Territories  and was sustained by an 'overwhelming majority. After this the assembly  in 181)3 consolidated the school ordin-  ances, these became statutory enactments in ISOO, making minor changes  but maintaining the original principle.  Then little more was heard, for a more  promising field for exploratory labor  had bean discovered ; that field promised, providing the seed were judi-  ciously and seasonably sown, to.produce an .abundant harvest.  It is unnecessary to follow the subject in all its 'ramifications,' Sir AVilfrid  Laurier's political craft was rewarded:  he became premier; subsequently the  "democrat to the hilt" became a  Knight, a privy councilor aud steward  for the time being of '.the destinies -oftho Dominion. Little more was heard  of the Manitoba school grievance;'. Sir  Wilfrid Laurier claimed that he "got  more than was provided in the Remedial bill"���������for the minority, Mr. Clilr-  ord Sifton claimed that "the principle  of public schools had in no manner  been departed from." Be that as it  may, so soon as the Northwest provinces bill was introduced, the Hon.  Clifford Sifton retired from Sir AVilfrid Laurier's government.  Sir AVilfrid Laurier by his assertion  of the rights of Parliament to violate  the British North America Act is  striking a blow at the very roots of  the constitution. Ho first attempted,  in the absence of two of his colleagues.  TOTipi'ing^theediicatibnal'ciaiises^irf-tnc"  new Northwest Province bills upon  Cabinet and Parliament. Failing in  this, he has argued or forced l.is  followers with countenancing changes  in thc original clauses which he averi-  should remove all irritating elements  while, when dissected, the .substituted  provisions were simply a difference in  verbiage, the spirit, and intention of  the original proposition being intact, :  in short, the provinces are to be de"  prived of aiij- possible right to say  what educational principle slut!! prevail. They are tied hand and foot,  unless the highest courts in the land  can relieve theni of their incubus.  Above and beyond all���������it i.s not a  question of separate schools alone���������it  i.s the right of Provincial authorities to  construct their local autonomy under  the British North America Act.  Budget   Speech   Delivered   by  Hon. R, G. Tatlow,   Minister  ���������    of Finance, in the Legislature,  1    March 28th, 1905.  Hon, Jlr. Tatlow, in moving that  the House resolve intself into Committee of Supply, said :  Mr. Speaker, it is not necessary for  me in making this motion tu go further back in our financial history than  the date when the present Government assumed ollice, which was practically the commencement of the lust  financial year.

At the time of the accession of this  Government to power in June, 1003,  the proceeds of the loan of $3,500,000,  authorized under the British Columbia,  Loan Act of 1902, for thc purpose of  paying off the then existing Bank  overdraft and for constructing the  Fraser*river bridge, bad been entirely  expended, but a balance of over half a  million dollars on account of the Fraser river.'.bridge still remained due,  which, with othei' sums required to  carry ont public works and contracts  thon on hand amounted to $7-18*300, a  liability the new Oioverniiient had to  face with an empty treasury.

As you are aware, at the close of  the session of 1903, it wai decided lhat  the incoming Government sliould  adopt the estimates pi-i-pai-d by their  predecessors,   but  that  retrenchment  Toronto News says: One of tho  most olfensive and intolerant organs  of coercion in Canada i.s the.

Turning again to the expenditures  for the year ending .Tune 30th, 1901, it  will be seen tliat the cosl of legislation  for that year was $1,135 less than the  amount voted therefor, and the .expenditure Tor. the Administration of Justice was $503 below the estimate for  that service. For education the vote  was $1 IS.220, and the expenditure  $115,358, showing a saving in that  depart ment of'$32,802.  On the other hand, the amount paid  on account of public institutions exceeded the estimate by the sum of  $532. A saving was made in the  Museum of $325,- and iii the Bureau of  JMiucs of $1,1SS, but the expenditure  oiijtbe Hospital for the Insane, over  and above the sum estimated for that  institution, not ouly absorbed these  savings,1 but brought the total expenditure for public institutions above the  amount of the vote.  On    hospitals    and    charities    the:  amount   expended   was   also   greater! year was $1,23.>,-103.7I,  than the amount of-the estimate. Tliis  excess is accotintedf or under Uio head,  "Grants to Hospitals," payments under  which amounted to $70,711.25,   whilst  tlie amount voted was  $05,003.00,   but  these grants being regulated by statute  the 'expenditure is one over which   the  Government has no control.    The cost  of transport was in excessof theestiin  ale by $2, III.00,  and the  expenditure  for    revenue    services   exceeded   tho  estimate of $17,000.00 for it by $7,155.00.  In 1903 the   expenditure   for   revenue  service was $30,320.00,  and  in   1901   it  amounted to $21,155.00, showing n decrease in favor of 1901 of $0,17-1.00 over  tho previous year.   It is difficult to see  why this item was  cut down   in    the  e.-liinates for 190) to $17,000.00  in  the  face of the expenditure in 1003. Miscellaneous expenditure, exceeded the estimate   made   for   it    by    $13,005.00.  Similarly   to   the   vote   for    revenue  service, miscellaneous expenditure was  estimated for  1901   at   less   than   the  estimate for the former year by  about  $12,000.    While  the   expenditure   for  this service in 1903  was  $101,500,    the  estimate   for   1901   was   cut   down to  \-Cj.\.ifi.rt(iei._,.  12-1,258 00  To sun) up the estimated expenditure  for the year ending June 30tb, 1901, as  compiled by the late Government,  amounted to $2,-101,500, which, with a  supplementary estimate of $139,830,  made a total of $2,031,390, and the es-  imated revenue was $2,193,170, showing an   estimated   deficit  of   $137,019.  tees to which I have just, alluded, .1  ���������mny state that the bonds of the Nakusp  and Slocan railway company, the  principal and jntorest of which isguai^  an teed by the Government', become  payable in 1013, and they have therefore about thirteen years yet. to run.  The amouni jjje Province had to pay  last year to meet tbe deficiency on  account of these bonds was $10,7'S(i.  The. Shuswap and Okanagan Kail-  way Company's bonds, the interest  on which is guaranteed by the Government, have about leu years yet to \  run, and the cost to the Province of  these bonds last year was $28,212.  The Victoria and Sidney Railway  Company's ��������� bonds, tiie interest on  which to the extent of two per cent.  1 per annum is guaranteed by the Government, mature in about twelve  years, and cost thc Province $0,000  annually. -  Coming to tho statement, for the  half-year ending-December 31st. 1901.  we find that the revenue for that half  md that for  the same half-year of 1003 it was  $1,119,-I-IS.30, showing au increase of  $ 110,015.1 J- in the half-year of 1901.  The expenditure for the half-year  ending December 31st, 1901, was  $1,211,378.00. and for the same half-  year in 1903 it was $1,505,812,07, showing a decrease in the half-year of 1901  of $201,-135.3S. But if the amount,  spent on the Fraser Iiiver Bridge is  deducted froifi the expenditure of the  half-year of 1903 the difference between  the expenditures for the two half-  years will not bo great.  It will be well to call attention to  the large receipts under the head of  Chinese Restriction Act, included in  both these statements, that for 1003  being $258,050. and for 1001 $225,000.  This item will now practically disappear from the accounts, and provision will have to be made to meet it  by somo other means. Altogether  this Province has received from the  Dominion $955,102.50 out of the  amount of $2,280,S22, received by the  Dominion under this Act.

" Saying effected  $   5,198 00  Whilst thc expendituco on account  of Civil Service and Administration of  Justice may appear excessive in comparison with the expenditure for like  services in the otliuc Provinces, it  must be remembered that much of the  outlay which in other p:5.i'!,s of the  Dominion devolves on the townships  or counties, must with us be borne by  the Province, fn Ontario, for example  under their Municipal system, tbey  have in each county of average size a,  Sheriff, Registrar of die Court,County  Registrar, Clerk and Treasurer, each  of whom i.s supplied with a, requisite  staff and offices and all the expense  incident l.o this service is paid for, not  by the Government of Ontario, but by  the county either direr;fly or hi fees,  liut in British Columbia the salaries  of all such ollicials are paid anil their  offices nro supplied and ei|tiippcd by  the Provincial Goveiiimeiit, and, from  t.he peculiar condi lions obtaining here,  Government thi.-, estimated deficit of  over $100,(W) has been turned into a  surplus of OV-.:l :>Si,(Alii.  ft will be. .-wil that the gross total  expenditure for the year 1901. ;m shown  in tbe public accounts, was $:i,0;S0.237,  but this included an amount for the  Fraser P.iver Bridge of $170,7-1.3, red no-  ing -i,e amount expended out of  rcve.iiic to ^oiSiJih 'ri"- Treasury  Debenture Act of 1903 provided tli iit  the balance required to complete the  Fraser River Bridge cljouid be paid  out of the $1,000,000 borrowed under  that Act, This has b;icn d(>ne, and tho  expenditure on this account was coy-1  ered by the balance tit that Joan retained on hand for the purpose of  meeting that payment.  On the, other hand, f have added the  amounts expended on 'railway guarantees to expenditure.

Adding tiiis amount of $51,059, it brings  the total expenditure to $2,010,553.

These estimates have been prepared  along conservative lines and I think I  can safely that- they state what we  may expect to receive during the  coining year. The statement I have  just read explains lhe basis on which  they have been framed and shows why  additions have been niiwie to some  items and reductions in others as compared wilh the estimates for the year  1003.  For instance, the receipts on account  of land sales for the year ending June  30th, 1901, amounted to the sum of  $11S,270.00. The estimated receipts  on lhat account for the year ending  June 30th, 1005, are $S'J,000, whilst the  actual receipts for the half-year ending December 31st, 1001, amounted to  S5S.233. I think, therefore, I am quite  safe in estimating the revenue from  land sales during the coming fiscal  year at $100,000.  1 would point out again that the  estimated revenue from Chinese restriction is reduced to $1,000 from  $25S,050 received in the year 1001,  making a very great reduction in the  reveuue which has largely been the  cause of increasing tlie taxation. It  will be observed that theie has been a  reduction made -in the estimate of  revenue from real and personal property. This is on account of alterations  made during the present session of the  Legislature in tlte Assessment Act, by  which the tax on personal property is  reduced by .one-thud and certain  changes are made in the taxation of  land. Changes made in the tax on  income would warrant the expectation  of receiving an increase from that  source, and it is hoped that under the  new system of taxation a fairer and  closer collection of taxes will be made  and^the revenue sustained.  The increase made in thc item of  Registry Fees is, 1 believe, justified by  the changes made iu the Land liegis-  try Act. The item of $23:000 for New  Westminster Bridge was based on an  arrangement made with the Great  . Northern Railway Company for running powers over the bridge and  receipts from vehicular aud passenger  traffic. As the Govei nuient has retained the right to grant, running  powers over the bridge to other railway and electric companies it is hoped  that the receipts under this head will  be largely increased before many  years.  Mv. Wells: I wonld like to ask if  any other railway company except the  . Great Northern has secured._ruiining  "powers civer'the'' bridge.  ��������� Hon. Mr. Tatlow : As yet no other  company has secured such running  powers, but the Government has  reserved the right to grant such  powers to any other company which  may apply. The Great Northern  Railway Company pays at present  S15.000 per year, and there are also  the ordinary tolls for vehicular aud  other traffic, the total estimated revenue being placed at $25,000 for the  year. The item, "Fees Under .Game  Act," is a new one in the estimates.  During the past year the sum of $2,-  000 was collected in the northern part  of the Province for game licenses. It'  is proposed to appoint ii" Game Warden, a salary for whom is provided for  in the Civil List, with the expectation  that by a proper carrying oiit of the  provisions of the Game Act a larger  revenue will be received from this  source, thus enabling the Government  to do more efficient work in the way  of preserving the game of the Province.

That a copy of this resolution  be forwarded to the premier and to  each member of the house from British Columbia."  Jlr. Thompson, after referring to the  right of this Conference to a voico in  this matter, said it was further necessary to pronounce upon it inasmuch as  pronouncements would be made by all  the Conferences of the'Dominion and  that this, the earliest in the year to  meet, should, support the undoubted  action of the others and show unanimity with them. He asked if those  provinces be coerced in this way what  are wo to expect next. The prospects  are that this will be tho order of thing  to be expected in the case of every  piece of territory added to any province. He contended that the amended  Bill was in no important particular  dilferent from the first one presented  to the House.  ��������� Uev.~R."N���������PowelI,-follo wing,--spoke  briolly, contending that the idea  embodied in tho Bill was at base the  fundamental contention to which all  Protestantism stood opposed. II  touched lhe com.try on the question  ot the welfare of the children and so  was most vital.  After Mr. Thos. Cunningham had  spoken. Dr. Roive and others followed.  Dr. Howe nsked the Conference to be  very careful and not to stir up a sectarian spirit.  The speech of the debate which put  the matter in a nutshell and which  was mal'kcd for intensity and pith and  form was mado by Rev. W.IS. Pescott-  He has convictions of a very pronounced type. He announced that he  had never ' giveri any other than a  Liberal vote in his lifo, but would be  very glad of an opportunity to do so  now. He contended that by the work  of the Hierarchy, the principle of a  true education was undermined. That  it was necessary for us to do our share  in what was essentially a national  issue, not a mere local or even a temporary one. Ifo thought tl'.at the  Dominion Ooyei'ninen't had no man-  dale in this matter and that further,  if it had announced auy such Bill  before the late general plectionc, it  woi|ld iiiivpr have beei) returned to  powor. lie liacj no objections i0 the  people of any sect educating it.s own  people in its own way with its invi]  money.

Seymour pretended to be surprised  ut   tlic  fiuestion.    .  "My clear Rovi'e," he said, in ft  tone * more sad tlien ungry, "why  should you ask such a question? if  you knew ms better you would know  that it is cpiite unnecessary and one  that I do not deserve. It i.s true  that you have never lost an opportunity of insulting nio. that only a  week ago you attacked me wifh ���������cr  ���������physical violence. 1 bear thc  bruises Caused by your brutality even  now; but I trust, Royce. that 1 know  thc duty of forgiveness, and that I  try to perform it. And X think you  will admit that you have nothing to  complain of. Most men, in my position, would have resented your violence, most men would liavo protested against and prevented tho introduction into their family circle of a  ���������er���������the kind of lK?rson you have  chosen to make your  wife������������������"  Ro.yce's hand closed on his wine  glass, and it snapped off at the stem,  the red wine flowing blood-like over  the   white  cloth.  "Leave my wife, leave Madgo  alone," he said hoarsely. "Vou���������  though you are the Karl of Landon  ���������are not fit to speak her name. I  know it���������feel it! And yet you dare  to try and hold her up to ridicule���������"  "My dear Royce." murmured Seymour, watching the fingers that had  broken the wine glass with an apprehensive closeness; "I hold your  wife up to ridicule! How could you  make such a mistake? I���������er���������am the  last man to do such a thing! Why,  it is only to-day that I said to her  ladyship, 'Roycc's wife must he received���������now that we have consented  to receive her���������as one of ourselves.  We must forget, or behave1 as if we  forget, that she was, ahem���������what  she was, and remember that she is  poor Koyco's wife!' Ask hor ladyship,  and she "will tell you that thoso were  my very words."  '"������������������'Poor' Royce!" said Royco fiercely. "I do not ask or need your  pity!"  Seymour gloated over the wound  he  had   inflicted.  "I beg your pardon, Royce. It���������  ei���������slipped from me unawares."-" Of  course, you do not want pity. You  nre quite happy. With your peculiar  nature you cannot understand the  blow you have dealt the family  pride! Just so! But please do not  talk of peace or wnr���������between brothers too! You puin me, Royce, you  do, indeed. And after���������well, I. did  not. intend to mention it���������but, well,  'yes. I will do so. You aro not  aware tliat I am using all my influence to get you reinstated in the  army?"���������ho uttered the lie with  suave glibness���������"nnd I think T should  hnve succeeded; but, of course, now  that is���������er���������out of the question. I  imagine that even your���������shall 1 say.  self-reliance and���������er���������self-confidence,  would not bo sufficient to enable you  to join your old comrades. They  might ask inconvenient questions  about���������er���������your  wife."  Royce stootl, as men have stood  under' physical torture, sternly calm  and enduring. Seymour watched him  and revelled in his agony.  "Only the other day���������let me see, it  was Tuesday���������I was in town, and I  met Lord Rochester. Ho had seen  vou at the theatre, seen you nnd���������  'Madge, and he was full of questions  about   her."  Royce bit his lip.  "Let them ask what they please,"  he said between his teeth. "She is���������  Why" he broke out, "even you must  admit'that she i.s a lady at heart."  "Yes, yes, quite so:" purred Seymour, "'liut in society one doesn't  earn much about ladies at heart when  they���������forgive me, Royce, don't be  angry.!��������� when__._they don't_ jjn������W^th������  UT-e-o? a linger-gluss'!'"  Royco sank in his chair and wiped  tl'.e perspiration from his forehead;  n;,.| Seymour, though he maintained  l.is sa'ivo, benevolent uspect. gloated  ever   him.  ���������'And they nsk inconvenient ques-  ������if.ii'.. my' dear Royce.

' "Spare your.-elf the trouble of ly-  inu'." he snid trrimly. "Tell them���������  the whole truth���������the truth. Neither  Madge  n..r  I   shall   be  ashamed."  "lSravclv said, but my dear Royce.  we have to think of our mother and  ���������er���������Irene."  Ue uttered Irene's namo softly, and  elanced up at Roycc's face with keen  malicious enjoyment.  "I think 1 ought to tell you,  Royce," he went on sail veiy, "that  Irene has promised���������well, very neiirly  promised���������to make me the happiest  of men."  "You!" Royce exclaimed, staring  at  his  brother.  "Yes," murmured Seymour sauve-  lv. "Irene has almost promised to  be my wife. I hope to bc able to ask  for 'your congratulations beforo  long."  "Irene���������your wife!" murmured  Uoyce hoarsely.      "Impossible!"  "I understand, my dear Royce, you  don't think I am worthy of her7 But  who  ie?"  "Ah! who is?" naid Royce dreann  iiy.  "Echo answers, 'no one,' " responded Seymour cheerfully. "Will you  have some  more wine?"  Royce Bank into his chair, and  poured himself out a bumper of claret' unsteadily, and drank it in sileaco. j  Irene, the lily maiden, the purest  sweetest girl in all the world���������Seymour's wife! And only the other  day slio had given him, Royce, her  locket, and shed tears as she bade  him  farewell!  For the moment, thinking of Irene,  he forgot even Madge.  Meanwhile Madge was waging her  buttle  in   tlie  dining-room.  The hulf hour after dinner���������thc interregnum, so to speak���������during which  womanhood, shut up alone, pines for  the appeunuice of the men, is said  to bo the most trying thirty minutes  of the day.  Some women coil themselves in an  easy chair, or on a sofa, and sleep;  others Iind a familiar and trusty  friend, and exchange gossip���������that is,  scandal; while others resign themselves to fate and indulge in fancy  needle-work. But nil unanimously  sigh for the tea-lrny and tho sound  of mastsulino footsteps.  Tho countess went straight to hor  easy chair beside the lire and, holding a screen between her nnd the  blaze, maintained a profound silence.  Madgo stood irresolute, not knowing  what to do, but Irene drew her to  an ottoman, just out of hearing of  the countess, who looked like a  fct:itue in gray satin, and from an exquisitely decorated work-basket took  some embroidery.  "Are you fond of embroidery,  Madge?"  sho said.  Mndge looked from her to the work  and shook her head.  "I don't know," she replied. "I  have never done any. I used to mend  Tony's clothes���������and���������und Jack's, I  mean Ro.yce's."  "And who was Tony?" asked Irene,  her white lingers twinkling above the  work. a  "Tony was a little boy in the  camp������������������" she stopped and crimsoned, "but I must not talk about  him,   or���������or  my  peoplo  here."  "You can talk about them or anything else to  me,   dear."  "No," she snid, atidcthcrc was a  touch of sadness in hor voice. "I  must not. It is all different���������different nnd strange. You cannot understand."  "Perhaps I can, just a little,"  said Irene in a !low, musical voice.  "J f I Were taken away from . my  friends the countess, and���������and the  rest, I should remember them and  think of them; and it is the same  with you."  "I must try and forget them,"  said Madge. "I hnvo never spokon  of .them to .In���������I mean Royce���������since  the dny we left the camp. Yes. I  must forget them!"  "That seems hard: for they wore  kind to you?"    "  "Yes." said Madge, eagerly: "oh.  yes. they were very kind: nnd the  night wu left I stole into the camp  and kissed Lottie and Mother Katie;  they   were   asleep "  -"Sing something, Irene," said tho  countess.  "Come to the piano with me,"  said Irene," as an elder sister addresses  a younger.  Madge went with her to the piano.  It was the first,  excepting the one in  hcr   own  room,     she  had  ever   seen,  the  very lirst!    Think of it!    She sat j  on  a     low   divan  beside  Irene,     and j  watched     her    as   she sang.   Irene's;  voice  was    not     strong,  but  it      had j  that rarest and most precious  of   all;  qualities, sympathy;  and it was very!  sweet. J  If   she     sang    a Tyrolean   hunting;  song,  you could  see tho  blue    moun-;  tains   and   hear  the   "Yodel"   of    the  Alpine  goathered:   if  she sang  one  of  Dvorak's  war  refrains,   the  vision   oi  the  battlefield  rose  before  you,     nndj  you   saw,   in  your     mind's  eye,     thej  clash   of  contending   foes,   heard     the j  ronr  of the artillery,  the neighing ofj  _tji^luij\;^_s,,:the^  and the waits of the vanquished":  an'fT  if she snnir. as she did  to-night, some!  simple  ballad,   of   which    every    word'  wns  distinct,     nnd   every note    sympathetic,   your   heart   began   to      beat  with  the  pli'iis'irublu    sadness     which  is  near  aUn   to  joy.

"Yes," said tho countess, slowly  and reluctantly. "She is beautiful  and   that  is  all!"  "Not all, mother! You don't  know her yet, or you would not havo  snid that; Mndge is as good as she  is beautiful!"  Whon the hour for retiring camo,  after Irene had sung several songs,  the latter roso from tho piano and  put her arm around Madge's neck,  saying:  "You must ho tired, clear, Shall  wo go to bed?"  Madge got up at onco, nnd Irene,  with her arm around Madge's waist,  went up to tho countess. Irene kissed hor, but Madge did not daro to  do so, and the countess looked at  hor  and said:  "G-ood-night; I hope you aro not  very tired!"-  Tlioy went up tho stairs together  and along the corridor, with its pictures and marble statuottcs, and  Madge stopped at tho door, but  Irene  saifi'  "Bray I come in, dear?"  "Will you?" responded Madge, de-  ligiitodly. A groat fire was burning  in thc luxuriously appointed room,  and the two girls stood before it in  silence for a moment, then Madge  said in a low voice:  "I want to thank you; but. I  don't know what to say, or how to  say it; perhaps it is because my  hettrt is so full!"  Irene took her hnnd and kissed hor.  Then followed an exchange of girlish confidences, and in a few minutes  those two congenial spirits separated  for the  night.  When Royce joined Madge, in hor  private apartment, hc kissed her  rapturously, and said that she had  acted splendidly, and extolled tho  neat way in which sho hud turned  the   tables   upon   Seymour.  Then, with another kiss, he passed  into   his   own  chamber.  After he had gone, Madge stood in  front of the lire looking down nt it  thoughtfully, trying; to realize her  new position. Then sho began to feel  tho heat of the room; she had lived  all her life in the open air, und  there was something oppressive in  the  luxury  around   her.  She went to tho window and opened it, and looked ovit. A crescent  moon was sailing in the sky, and she  could seo fur-stretching lawns fading  away into tho park beyond. The  scent of flowers rose from the Italian  gardens, an owl flow with a screech  from one. of the turrets towards the  woods.  It wns a lovely scene, and Madgo  leaned upon her elbows and gazed at  it dreamily. It was, in the moon-  lighl, us vague and strange as this  new lifo of hers; and it all belonged  to her husband's  brother,  the earl!  She was about to close tho window  and begin to undress, when suddenly  she saw something moving along tho  path below the terrace. It was a  woman, and Madgo, thinking it was  one of the servants, was not much  interested; but presently the figure  passed out of the shadow of tho terrace wall onto tho moonlit path.  Then something' in the woman's  height and bearing struck her, and  she saw it was the countess.  If it wero indeed she, her ladyship  had exchanged the rich gray satin  for a" plain black dress, and had  drawn a shawl around hcr, and up  to tho edge of her black bonnet)? as  if to  avoid recognition.  For a moment or two Madge was  not struck by the singularity of the  proceeding; then it occurred to hor  as strango that the countess should  go out in the grounds at that time  of night and alono.  She watched the dark figure, and  saw it slowly make its way along  .the path toward the lodge; then as it  got under the shadow of the line of  shrubs, Madge saw it turn its head  ami look back watchfully.  After a moment's pause "the countess moved on again, but this timo  with  a  quickened  step.  Madge stood looking after her,  st'irtled and bewildered.  Whero could the countess���������that  proud lady whose cold hauteur had  stabbed poor Madge like so many  knives p during the evening���������where  could she be going so noiselessly and  yes,   secretly?

A good clover sod makes an excellent basis for a crop of garden peas,  i'or ehe earlies-t crop I select a  warm, well drained eastern or southern slope, plow and prepare the  ground in March, if possible, writes  Air. T. L. Wall. In 1903 1 planted  Murch 'JO, last year ten days later.  As we are lliUO to 1700 feet abovo  sea level and about latitude 41 degrees, it is necessury to be ready to  go to work the first day it is lit,  if tho frost is out of the ground.  After plowing I first use a clod  crusher to level the ground and then  apply a 3 1.-3���������10���������5 fertilizer made  according- to my own formula from  nitrate'of soda, dried blood, acid  phosphate, muriate und sulphate of  potash, at the ratp of about 1S00  pounds to the acre. This year I  have applied about the half of it  where the row of peas is to bo, cultivating or harrowing it in thoroughly, thus putting the ground in  the best condition possible so early  in the season.  The rows aio staked out 3J to 1  feet apart. Four feet is best unless  tlio furrows are made very straight.  A single shovel plow is used. A furrow, is first mo.de a little to one side  of tiie row of stakes and peas by  hnnd in it, using a quart to a 230-  foot row. The shovol plow is then  run closo above, and just mear  enough' to nicely cover��������� the poas in  first furrow about 1 inch deep. In  the second furrow thus made in covering tho peas in tho first, peas aro  planted as in the first furrow, and  covered witli tho plow in the same  way. Thus a double row is made  with about  0 INCHES ��������� BETWEEN THEM.  In this space in the row, small  sharpened locust stakes are -driven  every lo to 20 feet as'soon as tho  peas are up, so that thc rows can  bo plainly seen. On these stakes  poultry netting is stretched and  fastened <xt upper and lower edges  with staples.  I'or Alaska, my favorite early variety, 12-inch' wire is used. For Gra-  dus and other kinds of about the  same height, 24-inch wire is necessary, but above that width the cost  of wire is tod groat, so I rarely  plant the high growing kinds. The  remainder of the fertilizer will bo  applied between the rows about the  time wire is put up, and cultivation  will follow. One or two applications  of nitrate of soda are -.made before  the vines reach' the top of the wire  netting, to keep: up the growth and  to keep the color a dark green.  Other plantings arc made same as  the first, according to season.

Where ono has a farm suitable tor  keeping sows to rnise pigs and has  the milk of his cows fo feed them,  they are profitable. T keep two  I'.erkshiic sows and a hour thn year  around nnd riilr.o two litters of pigs  each year, says Mr.  J. N.  a lover.   I  get a  young male every  two years,  securing  th'o best slock  possiblo.  In spring, when clover is largo  enough to furnish feed, t turn the  sows nnd th'e malo when he is quiet  and kind, into a small lot of clover  'or into tho orchard where thero is a  place made to shelter thcm from tho  sun and rains. There th'oy are kept  during summer and atje fed milk and  slop or wator with middlings or a  little corn and onta chop. Feed is  given three times a day during tho  entire season. With these hogs I  also allow a my sliotcs to run and  they livo oa clover, fallen apples and  milk slop until they are to be penned  up for fattening. In this way hogs  can bo carried cheaply over the summer nnd kept healthy.  AVh'en a sow is nearly due to farrow, s-ho is placed in the pig house  in a compartment by herself and  kept there until the pigs are a week  old. Then sh'o and tho littlo ones  are let out during the day to get  exercise. Tills prevents thumps. All  the promising young sows are allowed to run and are cither allowed to  breed or arc sold readily for breeders.  At fivo or six weeks thc . young  pigs are taken from tho sow and put  into a pen by themselves, where thoy  n'ro kept clean and comfortable and  fed on milk, oats, middlings and a  little corn.  During winter the sows nnd boar  aro kept in the stable at night and  allowed the run of the yard during  the day. They aro fed about tho  same as in summer. Moro feed is  given in connection with ashes and  clover chaff by wny of vurioty.  The hogs and shotes in the orchard  may be run, or not as one sees lit,  but I ring mine so thoy do not 'root  up  tho sod.  Other breeds mny do as well, but  T find a demand for Hci'kslvires, and  then they can be fattened at any  ago. 'Any h'og tlint will dress from  100 to 175^pounds is more ready  sale and can bo produced cheaper  tlian one weighing over 200 pounds.  T'nll litters arc usually kept until  March, whon there is a good de-  rna-.,id for sh'otes. I seldom keep pigs  for fattening' until they nit! a full  year old.

About a century '  ngo an army order was issued forbidding offlccis to wear eyeglasses or  spectacles. But a short-sighted officer belonging to a crack '-cavalry regiment had no mind to resign his  commission or stumble blindly, nnd  h'e invented tho single eyeglass. When  called to account by the authorities  he claimed that the monocle, being  of tho singular number, did not contravene the order against spectacles  and glasses in the plural. Bed tape  accepted this literal rendering of tho  law, anid, becoming popular in tho  British' army, the monocle was  adopted by civilian beaus.  After the battle of Liaoyang, and  the more redent battles in Manchuria  much rain fell, a consequenco of  heavy firing, repeated^? observed iu  war.

The coft satins with cashmere  backs in white or colors are being  used for a number of tho new blouses  for spring wear. These wash exceedingly well, and have very reliable  wearing qualities.  For simple gowns thero is a revival of interest in tho sailor waist.  Tho plaited skirt nnd tho sailor  waist combine excellently, and the  two make up an easy and yet stylish  for the country or for informal wear.  Tho ready-mado covert coats show  numorous collarlcss neck finishes, but  the smartest coat of this type has,  as it has always had, a conventional  cont collar und plain-stitched sleeve  linish.  Tho newest pocketbook is long,  narrow and very flat, and of envelope shape with a strap handle  on the back. One of the sort is of  pigskin, stained in brownish mulberry shades and sprinkled with  fleur-de-lis.  A very lovely shade which will be  much in evidence this season is a  delicious bluish purple, known by  the name of wood violet. It is introduced, in faced cloth in two or  threo qualities.  There are mnny new and beautiful  soft silks in the stores. Some of  them are almost ae sheer and pliable  as chiffon. The colors arc charming.  Some very protty simple toques  and turbans suitable for traveling  have been seen. The straw used for  .these are mostly rough weaves, ono  "verj' coarse and loosely woven being  a great  favorite.  It is  the acme of fashion  to  havo  belt  buckle  and  ornaments   for     the  back  to  match.   The  new  belts     are  many of    them    wide at the    back  pointing somewhat.  With thc new styles of hats the  tulle veil comes in triumphant. Thero  can be no question of lace veils  floating down at the back when so  much of the trimming of the hat is  arranged cachepeigne fashion, nor of  long scarfs twisted about tho neck  aiuWialling to the foot, such as were  ��������� worn by some fashionables last year.  The prevalence of tho very high girdle must have been noticed by every  shopper. Half the street gowns seem  to be furnished with n high belt, and  the dinner or evening gown, which  has not such an arrangnicnt is an  exception.  There's a new belt that is taking  with women of ordinary proportions.  It is about 2J inches wide and is  made of two bias strips of leather,  sowed together in the middlo and  flaring at each side. When it is  drawn around the waist the belt fits  to  perfection.  The linon parasols arc new, and  will doubtless enjoy great popularity  for a time. Heavy linon is used for  the moro practical sort, and they are  embroidered in very open patterns  or in padded embroidery, exactly like  the linen gowns and wcaps. The  lighter models are made like lingerie  waists, very much trimmed with lace  and embroidery. Few of them are  lined, and, although very pretty to  look at, cannot be of much use in  keeping the sun  off.  Coats of taffeta and other silks  are to have a decided vogue antl are  made in many picturesque ways, running from the fussy littlo wraps,  shirred, plaited and corded into  piquant shnpolcssness, to the long,  ample redingotes__and the severely  "triildred'silk" motor coats.

Tho spring crop of parasols is vory  gay indeed. A parasol being one of  the most becoming adjuncts of ��������� a  toilette, a little extravagance is to  be allowed. A great deal is called  for by many of the new ones. Parasols in fine ~ handkerchief linen, embroidered and inset with exquisite  lace, cost almost as much as a gown,  ' and more than some gowns. Very  smart are the bright red, blue, green  and violet taffeta parasols, with animal heads carved on the handles.  A chemisette noticed among many  extremely attractive ones has a narrow stripe of light-blue embroidery,  set in between strips of fine Valenciennes lace. The stock meets tho'  chemisette in a little point in front,  and the whole scorns unusually well  shaped, as some of them are apt to  look  stiff and ungainly.  Most.of the new hats are extremely dashing. i:The object of the many  turns and bends into which the  tui'ned-up brims aro twisted seems to  be to give the hat' the most youthful  and jaunty, effect possible. So universal is this elTect, that elderly  women nnd matrons with quiet  tastes are buying bonnets instead of  . toques and hats. Among other dashing shapes, the so-called collar hnt  is conspicuous. The collar is merely  n. second brim attached to the crown,  the spucc between tho two brims giving an excuse for moro trimming.  Sometimes thc collar is mndo of tulle  '���������wired, or roses or ribbon.   +   There aro ovor  70  miles  of funnels  ,put  in  the solid rock  of Gibraltar.  A SPRING TONIC.

Probably there is only one place  within the confines of civilization  whero monkeys can be seen turning  somersaults and otherwise disporting  themselves on graves whero peoplo  aro buried says a London letter.  That is in n rather extraordinary  private menngcrio which has been  set up in London by a clergyman of  the Church of England. Tho clergyman In question is thc Reverend J.  W. Horsley of Walworth, who set  tho folk of thnt rather grimy London  district aghast awhile ago by turning tlie cemetery behind Saint Peter's Church, whero hc ofllciates, into  a  zoo.  This zoo contains :io less than four  monkeys, who spend most of their  time in climbing a scries of posts  erected amongst thc graves in tho  cemetery for their delectation. Thc  rest of thc while, however, the monkeys occupy in romping over the last  resting pTaces of long-dead Walworth  folk in a fashion which cannot yet  bo viewed with complacency by the  descendants of the latter. Tho other  inhabitants of thc reverend gentleman's zoo consist of threo owls, a  flock of pigeons, some whito rats  and 30 guinea pigs.  There aro about 1,000 graves in  thc cemetery wliich this clergyman  saw fit to turn into a menagerie���������  and incidentally into a playground  for the children of the choked-up district. Of course, each grave had its  headstone and when Mr. Horsley set  about transforming the place hc had  all those headstones removed and  stacked up alongside the iron fence  which separates the cemetery from  the streot. Afterward hc had tho  poles put up for his monkeys and  provided suitable accommodation for  tho rest of his menagerie.  The owls are in a big cage, the  pigeons occupy a second, and tlie  white rats a third, while tho guinea  pigs have a big runway enclosed by  a wire netting, inside of whoso confines thoy have eaten long graves  quite bare. This to the further disgust of thc many Walworth folk  whose wrath was kindled to start  with by thc introduction of the-mon-  k'eys. In fact, tho vestry council of  the district has been appealed to several times with a view to making  tho Reverend Mr. Horsley eject his  menagerie from the cemetery, but so  far the councilors have supported the  parson.  CRYPT A  CLUBROOM.  This ingenious divine first became  known to fame outside the scene cf  his intensely earnest, if rather startling activities, when, he performed  another feat only less novel in its  way than that of transforming his  graveyard into a recreation ground  and menagerie. This was several  years ago,' when Mr. Horsley, at" a  loss for a clubroom in which - to  gather the young men of his parish,  determined to make ' one out of the  crvpt of the church; which aty that  time was tilled with the bodies of  the long departed. As the church  wa.s then, there was n;t a single  room in it that could be utilized for  thc purpose of attracting those of  Mr. Horsloy's young parishioners,  who otherwise would spend their  evenings in dives. There wasn't anyplace in tho district either that Mr.  Horsley thought he could fix up to  his satisfaction, and so it was that  hc determined to get the space needed by forcing t.he crypt of Saint  Peter's to disgorge. The place was  literally' filled with coffins, of which  had been there for a century or more  ���������thc, church being over800 years old  ���������but in a comparatively short time,  thc energetic pastor had got the last  of the caskets out of the crypt and  seen to it that all the remains were  rcburied in consecreatcd ground in  the suburbs of Woking. Then he had  thc crypt thoroughly disinfected and  after being whitewashed and painted  and supplied with a few necessary  fittings, it made exactly tho sort of  room which the pastor needed. It is  now a favorite rendezvous for the  young men and some of the young  women of the district and contains  among other things an excellent  gymnasium. During the winter a  kitciren" is_set���������tip in the crypt "a"nd"  soup dispensed where once coffins  rested.  It was quite by chance that Mr.  Horsley came to sot up his cemetery  zoo. His original idea was merely  to make tho graveyard into a playground for the children of tho district, who needed an open space badly. But while he was considering  this worthy project somebody wrote  offering him the smull herd of guinea  pi.es whicli now irciidcs in the ceme-  tcrv. Mr. Horsley accepted the guinea pigs and for awhile boarded them  out ns individuals at the homes of  various small boys, making sure that  the animals should be well treated  by offering regular prizes for the  guinea nig kept in the best condition.  A bit later, however, the parson's  white rats were bestowed upon him  by somo admirer and soon afterward  the monkeys and pigeons came along  and then it was that the clergyman  hit on the idea of setting up his  menagerie in thc churchyard.

Unusual, however, as tho Gorleston  vicar's doings arc, England contains  at least half a dozen clergymen  whose performances either in connection with their calling or outside of  it, make those of Athol Forbes scorn  comparatively commonplace^ Of  these divines, by lar the mos't picturesque is the Reverend A. Osborne  Jay, whose church in Shoreditch contains a boxing ring where during the  winter months prizefights to a finish  take place almost overy night. Theso  contests are usually for a purse and  are generally presided over by a  professional referee. The prizering is  literally under the Reverend Mr.  Jay's aftar rail, for it is in thc  middle of the room which forms tho  basement of his church���������Holy Trinity���������and every match is attended by  the clergyman who, though he  doesn't box himself, has learned a  good deal about the fighting game  in the sixteen years during which  he has been a constant onlooker at  sparring matches. In' Shoreditch���������  which is the Jago about which Ar-  .thur Morrison wrote his slum novel���������  boxing is the most popular mascyi-  line pastime, and when Father Jay,  as he is called, was sent down into  this section of Whitechapel by his  bishop nearly twenty years ago to  found a church thero, he could find  only one way of winning the good  will of tho men in thc district. That  was by giving them a place in which  sparring matches could be held in a  comfortable and scientific mnnner. Of  course, Mr. Jay tried a lot of other  things first���������amongst tliem, the conventional reading-room, and quarters where games could bo played���������  but nothincr fetched thc hard citizens  of the district until the clergymen  fixed up a twelve-foot ring in a room  over a stable, provided boxing gloves  and told the local aspirants for  fistic honors to go it to their hearts'  content.  RESULTS   JUSTIFIED   HIM.  Since that time prizefights under  clerical supervision have been a feature of life in Shoi'cditch and how  much tho Reverend Mr. Jay has beon  enabled to accomplish by really getting in touch with thc male members  of tho flock would take too long to  tell. It is significant, however, that  when Mr. Jay finally managed to  get enough money to build a church  he transferred his boxing ring from  its original location to tho basement  of the sacred edifice.  Knockouts arcifrequent in the fights  that occur there; in fact, there is  practically nothing to distinguish  -those-contests��������� from-reul -prizeflghtsr  except that thc purse���������contributor! by  the audience���������is of no great value,  that only non-alcoholic drinks ure  served at tho ring-side, and that no  profanity is allowed. Of course, Mr.  Jay has been criticised fiercely for  his unconventional method of winning the district, but the results appear to justify it. Several of the  coster youths who learned to uso  their fists in Father Jay's club are  now getting their living in tho  prizering, one of these being Willie  Smith, tho ten-stone clmmpion of  England, but this fact does not dismay the clergymen. "There is no  harm in boxing itself," said Father  Jay, in a conversation I onco had  with him on the subject. "We do  not fear to teach a boy to write because he niay some day commit forgery. Shoreditch is called pugilism's  cradle, and its men and boys will  box whether you like it or not, and  if not in my club then in some low  'boozer,' as they call the saloons.  ���������:'".: .* /+   /' ���������* ���������;���������'������������������������������������'������������������  BOVINE   STEEDS.

Tho experience  of a Kansas City mother is a case  in point:  "I was a groat coffee drinker from  a child, nnd thought I could not cnt  n meal without it. But I found at  last it wns doing me harm. For  years I had been troubled with dizziness, spots before my eyes and  pain in iny heart, to which was added, two years ago, a chronic sour  stomach. Tho baby was born 7  months , ago, tand almost from the  beginning, it, too, suffered from sour  stomnch. She was taking it from  ime!  "In ni3r distress I consulted a  friend of more experience than mine,  and she told me to quit -coffee, that  coffee, did not make good milk, I  have since ascertained that it really  dries up the milk.  "So, I quit colTee, and tried tea  and at last cocoa. Bub they did  not agree with me. Then I turned  to Postum Codec with the happiest  results. It proved to be the very  thing I noeded. It not only agreed  perfectly with baby and myself, but  it increased the flow of my milk. My  husband then quit coffee and used  Postum,.. quickly got well of tho  dyspepsia with which he had been  troubled. I no longer suffer from tho  dizziness, blind spells, pain in my  heart or sour stomnch. I'ostum has  cured them. t-  "Now wo all drink Postum from  my husband to my seven months'' old  baby. It has proved to be the best  hot drink wc have over used. Wc  would not give up Postum for tho  best colTee we over drank." Name  riven bv Postum Co., Battle Creek,  Mich. .  There's a reason.

They are made  by a secret process, the artists being  a father and son in Germany, who,  it is said, may let their secret die  with them.
