From Njcola to Spence's Bridge  * It was announced yesterday that the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company  has let a contract for the construction  of a line of railway from Nicola to  Spence's Bridge, a distance of 45 miles.  While the present contract calls  only for 45 miles of railway, it is stated  that the intention is that the line  will ��������� ultimately run through the  Similkameen and on to the Boundary  Country.

Demented Man kills his Brother  and then   Shoots Himself at  Three   Forks���������Particulars of  the Tragedy.  Tl.e result of the official investigation  of   the   tiagedy   lepoited   fioui  Thiee Folks laat Thursday, when the  dead  bodies of the Kumlin brothers,  Charles A. and   Gust, were   found   in  tlieir^ cabin ne������r Alamo, determined  the affair to ha\e been a case of mm -  der and suicide, the brother Gust having   e-iidently   killed Charles A., and  then ended hie-own life.   From all tho  evidence the  authorities were able to  gather, Gust became insane and killed  bis brother with an axe, after which  he placed the. muzzle of a shot gun in  his mouth and blew his brains out.  The investigation was conducted by  coroner E. C. Arthur, of Nelson, and  constable J. T. Black of New Denver,"  who went to Alamo on Satuiday. On  reaching the cabin occupied by the  Kumlins. they found the brother  Charles A. lying on the bed w ith two  deep gashes in his head, (/lose by lay  a ship carpenter's axe with which thc  wounds had undoubtedly been inflicted.  The body of Gust lay on the floor  with a shot gun under it. It appeared  he had place tho. muzzle of the gun in  his mouth and bending over had  pressed the ti igger w ith his finger as  the charge, passed thiough the head  and came out near the left temple. ..    -*_  In   pursuing   their investigation-to  ascertain the circumstances leading up  to the tragedy, the authoriMes learned  that the brothers were in New Denver-i ^  on'tbe Oth.   "At that time_ Gust was , w  n,iid "to 'ha\e   acted .peculiarly,*,and_/,i  Charles'went to DrvBrourse_and told  him his .brother -was. not weli^was in.  low spiiits -And behaved as if his mind  not in a normal state.

A boy teu  yeats old, the only sui viviug member  of the family, stood by the graves and  wept bitterly, while tears flowed down  the cheeks of a bundted men.  Eleven members of the Fezzend  family were killed. Their bodies will  be sent to G lid ley, Kan., for burial.  physiciariMo prescribe'something  that-.-vould help him, and paiticularly  something that would cheer him up if  that could be done.  After the brothers left New' Denver  nothing'was seen of them until thu  evening of the llth when a messenger  receive carried a telegram to the cibui. He  niade the discovery of tbe tragedy aud  at once repoi ted it. *  The telegram, the authoiities learned, was from a cousin from Sweden,  announcing that he was on his way to  British Columbia to join the bi others.  Coroner At thur held an inquest at  Alamo Saturday evening at which ,x  countiyman of the Kuuilin's testified  to having Known the brothers'well,  both in this country and Sweden. He  suited that insanity was hereditary in  the family and that a sister is now in  an asylum at Sweden. He also testified that Gust had shown symptoms of  an unbalanced mind of iate.  The jury returned a veidict of murder and suicide, finding that Gust did  the deed.  The conclusion is that the tragedy  was the result of insanity on the pair  of Gust. If there be no doubt as to its  correctness it is certain theie was  method in the madness of the demented man as in the cabin under a table  lay the body of the hi other's dog, with  the head blown off, indicating conclusively-that-ihe_dopr���������of _the���������deed-  must have known what he was doing  as it was appaient Chai Ies was killed,  then the dog disposed of, pei Imp-*  fiom a humane desire to prevent it  starving, and then the final act was  committed.  Because of the last circumstance  and a weir known affection the brothers boie one anothei. one theory was  advanced that Gust may have lealized  he was going insane and knowing thc  taint was in thc family, may ha\e  feared the affliction would ovei take  Charles, or, possibly, not wishing to  bc feepaiated fioin his brother, may  hate decided to tnd all, while still ut  least partially rational.

He  had lingered a few moments after  the others, as hc had been told; had  heard dimly, only bald comprehending, the council's brief instructions  and the admonition to be wary, coupled with that final, fateful intimation, "Kirschoft will watch!" and  then, like some tipsy reveller, h'e Kad  staggered through' the streets homo.

His mind weat.back to thc little lock  of liair and the tiny glove with its  still-lingering scent of lavender; he  remembered how this majestic, glorious-eyed woman hatl once seen thom,  read th'eir story in a glance, and  given him a friendship all tho nobler,  all the higher, ever sinco because of  thcm. Think! Ho took her hands,  drew the trembling figure closer.  "lima, you are good to mc, but���������  but you ask thc Impossible! I have  thought and thought; and there is  no way out.

Swiftly she tore herself apart, the great shaking sobs  rising In her throat till they were  like to choke her. Heavens, how she  loved hlni, this big Knglishman! She  looked nt liim again���������so calm, bravo,  indexible. No. She hnd mado her  effort���������failed; it was nil ended.

It was cold���������so cold that the  breath of him struck white on tho  frosty air. and his limbs were stiff  and cramped; but of that he recked  littlo. In his heart was a fire that  burned fiercely. Since nightfall h'e  had waited and watched patiently  under the twinkling etars for a sign;  a movement from the houso within;  surely h'e would never stay to carry  out th'o plan, this mad Englishman!  He would try to slip away, to elude  hi.s vigilance���������his, Kirsch'off'a; and  then how sweet would be the rest!  One swift, sudden blow; and the past  would bo wiped out beyond.  But there had been nothing, not  even a whisper, only the rustle of a  woman's dress, and a biting, scornful glanco ns she swept by that  thrilled Kim with the minute's desire  to strike now���������here���������nnd kill the  pair of them! P'ff how Kis fingers  had tingled! It was absurd���������childish; to wait would be to wound hcr  far deeper. Of a surety this clean-  faced Ervglishiman was mad to stay!  ... One! Th'c big, deep boom, of thq  bell rolled out into the night, rousing .-echoes of itself that leaped from  wall to wall in -dying;, an'd then all  Wns quiet again. Out there in tho  starry silonr.o the man still crouched���������still waited and watched 'with  eyes that -cover closed and cars pre-  tcrnnturiilly sharp; but his heart  throbbed faster now. On'y another  moment or so! The ghostly shadows trembled to his. thinking; the  vcry air seemed quivering with excitement.  Now the door had opened, tentatively ut first,: then wider. Ho had  stepped out, a grey, mufTIe'd figuro  that huddled up to the frost-crystalled walls just the one hesitating instant.    At last!  The last, act in Cecil Andrew's- drama of life had begun; he had edged  into the shadow and was sidling  slowly onward, thc cat-like figure in  the rear" following every step. Failure  was impossible if he carried out their  klans; it was all so simple, so diabolically exact. The Minister, was  at the imperial Palace: doubtless  evon now ho was gaily chatting with  low-voiced women or drinking brimming bumpers".to the health of the  mighty Czar, all unconscious of the  doom that waited for him. At two  o'clock he would leave: his carriage  would rumble heavily through the  silent streets; ami at the precise moment of reaching his own door there  would bo���������what? Ho shuddered. A  deafening roar, a flash of white,  blinding flame, the sound of shivering  fragments  of  falling  debris     all  round���������chaos!

The solitary word, flung one man  to thc other, and thc woman's whispered prayer; then they closed and  the struggle of a lifetime began. Sido  to sido they swayed, liko wind-blown  saplings, now this gaining an inch  now that; each measuring tho other's  weak points and seeking warily a  sairer grip. Andrews set his tooth in  grim resolve; tho memory of old,  nigh-forgotten wrestling days came  back. He tried a feint, slipped, recovered liko lightning, amd was  pressing home the advantage in a  flash. Fatal to a lighter man, the  other only shifted ground just slightly, taken by thc suddenness of the  thing; and a gleam of savage tooth  showed that the trick had no morc  worth.  Now they were almost back.. to  back, tho straining muscles standing  up liko whipcord and th'o beady foreheads glistening in the dull light. A  heart-beat's pause, and then a sudden wrench, a-twist of the thick-set  trunk, showed what Kirschoft' was  trying to do. Tht���������tho bomb! He  had felt the bulky package���������divined  the truth in an instant. One hand  free, and h'e would risk anything,  everything, 'to grope wildly for' it,  press the. spring-that set in motion  the clockwork. Andrew's heart beat  wildly. ��������� Come whatever else,; that  must never happen!  He straightened * himself���������a superhuman swerve. Suddenly, with no  hint of warning,'his right hand shot  out���������was gripping the knotty throat  so-tight that it seemed as if tho  staring eyeballs must start - from  their sockets. His knee pressed hard  upon Uid other's c-.h'est���������ugh! : Only  an instant, but it sufficed.; He had  managed to dig it out���������to let it slide  gently,  harmlessly to the ground.  "lima!"

But tlio effort had  tired him;: the struggle" seemed interminable. Two more minutes*���������three.  His breath was only a scries of jerks;  tho tired 'muscles seemed to crack  with'every change of poise.  All at once he., faltered���������no feint  this time: and- quick as lightning  KirscliolT seized the chance. H'o saw  tho arm go up, thc hot breath was  on his face, there was a mocking  smile.

It is not always an easy matter  for an inexperienced cook to boil a  ham so that, whilo perfectly well  done, it is not in tho least ragged  or stringy, and will cut to excellent  advantage. Neither is it possiblo to  formulate an infallible rule for the  cooking. Somo .cooka weigh tho htun  and putting it into cold water, wait  until it boils, and then timo it fifteen or twenty minutes for each  pound. But even this rule sometimes  fails, for the ham may cook moro  quickly under certain conditions than  others.  But in case tho ham must bo boiled, it is well to plunge it in cold  water enough to cover it well, bring  it gently to a boil, and thon cook it  slowly, being sure that it never gets  off the boil, but being equally careful  at no time to let it boil furiously.  Twenty minutes for. each pound,  cooked according to theso directions,  should bring tho ham out in good  condition.  But a housekeeper who has had  trouble witli boiling hams, says she  will never boil another. She has  been experimenting and has come to  the paradoxical conclusion that a  boiled ham is best baked. She uses  tirst of all care in the selection of  tho ham which ehe is going to cook  Next she trims off the outer skin  and the back with a sharp knife.  Then she makes a biscuit dough  which, will be large enough when  rolled out to the thickness of about  an inch completely to envelope the  ham. This dough is rolled out, and  ��������� the ham laid on it. Tho edges arc  wetted, folded over, and carefully  pinched together, so that thero is  not any possiblo way for thc steam  to  escape.  Then the ham is laid in- a baking  pan and put intp a moderately hot  oven.- It is baked for throe hours,  care being taken to keep the heat  uniform. At the end of that timo it  is taken out, stripped of its cover of  biscuit dough, which, has become  brown and hard, and set aside to  cool. The woman who cooks her  ham this way says it is far and  away bettor than a boiled one, for  the dough keeps in tho fine flavor o������  tho ham, .some of which is bound to  be lost in  tho boiling.  I remember an old lady, who kept  a delicatessen store years ago, writes  a correspondent, who invariably  boiled her ham for two hours took  it from the pot, cut off the skin,  sprinkled the fat part with grated  bread, crumbs, and then put the ham  back; into a moderately hot oven for  an hour. It tasted ancl cut much  better than a ham which had been  boiled all the time'.  If you wish to use a whole ham  boiled for the table, and can put it  on cold, it is nice to have it prettily  decomtjed. . You might bake tho  ham as described above. Then you  must be sure that it is thoroughly  cold before beginning to make it look  pretty for the table. Beforehand  you should have prepared a .' thick  glaze by taking a pound of good,  lean beef, putting it in an earthen*  jar with a half cupful of water, putting the cover',.on the jar, and sealing up the 'hole; through which thc  steam is usually allowed to escape,  with a bit of bread or biscuit dough,  or by putting a whole coyer of,the  dough over the pot. Place this in  tho oven, which should not be too  hot, and leave it four or fivo hours.  Take it* out, remove the meat, put  the cover on the.pot, and return it  to thc oven, leaving, it till there is  not over half a coffee cupful of liquid  left in the pot. This is to be used  as" a glaze for the ham, and should  be brushed all over the top of thc  ham while the glaze is warm. Jf the  ham is quite cold the glaze will set  quickly, and when it is dry a second  coating should he put over it, repeating till the ham is smooth,  brown and glossy. A. small camel':;  hair brush can be used to put the  glaze_ on.   not thicker than an ordinery slice of  bread. Then lt should be carefully  spread with good butter, which must  not be hard, but should not be actually melting. Cover one slico of  tho bread with the ham, lay another  over it, and press down. Cut the  slice* across, corner ways. It is not  necessary to remove tho crusts, if  the bread is homo-made, not stale,  and cut thin. If the sandwiches aro  going on a picnic, or for a lunch,  where they will have to bc kept somo  time before eating, wrap each one in  a bit of waxed paper, and put them  in a tin or air-tight box. You can  vary these by putting a thin crisp  lettuce leaf in with tho ham, and  adding to each a half a teaspoonful of mayonnaise dressing, or you  can rise tho dressing without tho lettuce.  EXPERIENCE EXTRACTS.  Hero aro a number of valuable  suggestions for keeping thc air of  tho  house  pure:  Plenty of sunlight.  A dry cellar at all times.  Fropuent inspection  of  plumbing.  Open war against the feather duster.  A thorough daily airing of each  room.  Shaking and brushing clothing  out-of-doors.  Opening windows at night; discarding weather-strips.  The use of stained floors and rugs  in  preference  to  carpets.  Daily airing and occasional beating of mattresnes and  blankets.  Romoval from tho bedroom at  night of clothing worn during the  day.  Little furniture and no uncovered  vessels containing soiled water in  tho bedroom.

Without question, beaten  all known * records. His name is  Ustus Machnow, and twenty-foua  j'ears ago, at which time ho was  born at OharkofT, in Russia, it was  never expected that he would grow  up at all, still less that ho would  rise in the world to the extent that  he has  dono.  His present height is 9ft. 3iin.,  and He is.stated to bo still growing,  and to have gained half an inch ' in  the last year. His head measures  three-quarters of a yard round, he  is ftft. round thc chest, and each  hand, from wrist to finger-tips,  measures 2l't. His weight is a" little.|  ovcr 448 lbs. His legs are nearly  the length of an ordinary man's  height; and his boots nro 2ft. 3in,;in  length. His clothes sire necessarily  enormous; his frock-coat would -;al7  most carpet a room, and a child of  six or seven j'ears old disappears  entirely when' put.into his dvercoa,t  pocket. On-the fingers of one. of his  immense hands ho wears a gold ring,  through which a largo hen's egg will  pass. It weighs nearly half a pound.  At the Hippodrome '; the giant  makes many friends; He is 'soi tall  that ho stands oil tho ground floor  among the stalls and shakes hands  with the persons up  IN THE DRESS CIRCLE.  "That's nothing ..wonderful for rne,'  he remarked afterwards to the'writer. "I have an extensive 'reach,' for  each of my arms measures nearly 6  f.cct, and 1 have often, when walking  along the street, shaken hands, with  people up at ���������. the ��������� first-floor windows.  This, of course, was; in places-where  I Was not exhibiting; in fact, before  I began doing so.  "Also, I have often lighted my  cigar' at street lamp-posts, -which I  can reach' easily. At lawn tennis 1  can stand in the back .courts and  play all tho strokes .that are'close  up at the, not. At one time-I'used  to play football a littlo. I couldn't  run very well, as I weigh over 4(18  lbs., so I was invariably made 'goalkeeper, and I can assure you no  rootbnll^evcr^got���������pnst-my=hands=or-  fcet. My brothers used to say that  I filled up all the spuce between tho  goal-posts.  "I require about twelve hours'  sleep, and cat ravenously. For  breakfast I have two quartern loaves  Jib. of butter, two quarts of milk,  and a dozen eggs; nnd thc samo for  nupper. When I happen to bo staying whero I can got thorn T intend  to have a couple of ostrich eggs,  which would be less trouble than a  lot of little eggs. I lunch on Sib. of  ment and bread and vegetables and  a quart of beer, and for dinner I  have 51b. of ment, 71b of potatoes,  a  large-sized  apple  pie,  and  HALF A GALLON OF BEER.  So it costs me n lot to live, and nobody   invites  me  to como and     stay  with  theni  for a  week.  "I cun't suggest what made me  the size I am, nor can I give your  readers the recipe. My father and  mother and brothers were only of  normal height. . I always had lofty  ideas, though, even as a child, and,  like most youngsters, I was very  anxious to be trill. I used to swing  by my hands from the rungs of a  ladder and from beams in thc stable,  hoping to lengthen myself, and 1  always lay at full length in bed, so  nfl to grow. And after all, you see  I needn't have, bothered.  "Curiously enough, however, I was  rather small at first. In fact, for  tho first fow years, though I had a  big head, I grow so little thnt sometimes my mother was rather worried about it.  " Ji do believe that boy's going to  bo a dwarf,' she said. My father's  only reply was, 'I wish he'd eat like  one, then,' for my appetite was even  at that time very large. After a  whilo, howover, I began to grow so  rapidly* that;;my mother became still  inoro  uneasy.'. /  " "I do believe that boy's going to  bo.   :'n-' giari'tjj'   she    exclaimed.   My  father said, "There Is no pleasing  you, anyway,' but my mother's anxiety was not to be wondered at, for  on my ninth birthday  I WAS  Oft- 6in.  HIGH,  and I had to  lift her up  to    pencil  my    height   on thc wall,  wjj,lch    for  many years had been her practice as  we children grew taller.  "I am married now nnd havo ono  child, a baby of threo months, who,  liko my wifo, is of merely normal  size. 1 could have married scores of  times, for ln various cities whero I  havo exhibited I havo had quito an  absurd number of letters from ladies  of all ages containing proposals of  marriage, ancl often enclosing poetry  and flowers.  "People often ask mo if I wouldn't  prefer to bo of tho normal size.  Well, no I wouldn't. For ono thing,  I should be a mcro nobody instcad  ot a sort of celebrity, and should  probably bo earning 510 a week instead of Si,000, which is my salary  in most cities.

I  pulled     four  peoplo out one after another without  much  difiiculty, but  when I tried to  get out myself I found it was hopeless,  as  tho ice  kept breaking away  at   each  attempt.

Some years ago a young but ambitious M.P., having .long resolved  upon attempting some speech which  should 'astonish tho Houao,:/..afr last  rose solemnly, and -after three loud  "Aheins!"  spoke as follows:���������  "Mr. Speaker, . have wo laws, or  h'uvii wo not laws? If we have laws,  and th'ey arc not observed, to what  end were thoso laws made?"  - So.saying, be sat down, his breast  heaving high with .conscious importance. The House was somewhat  nonplussed at this novel address,  when another member, whose reputation ss a wag stood him In good  stead, rose, and delivered his  thoughts in these words:���������  "Mr. Speaker, did the-honorable  gentleman who spoke last speak to:  the purpose, or not to the purpose?  If ho did not speak to the purpose,  to what purpose did he speak?"  One     Chicago       Institution     Will  Adopt It���������Marks Will be  Kept  on Ledgers.  ��������� Tho   finger print  as a  means     of  identification is in a fair way to be  adopted    by at    least    ono Chicago  bank, which, after a thorough investigation of tho systom,  considers   it  tho most dopcndablo method of identification,    says  th'o  Chicago   Inter-  Ocean.    Tho new  systom  will create  a revolution in  bookkeeping,  for instead of an alphabetical classification  of signatures, such as tho banks now,  hnvo,  th'oy    must    adopt a sclentiilo  classification  of  finger  prints.     And  here  a new   field  opens  up  for     th'e  man  with sh'nrp eyes.      The    finger  murks,   or rattier thumb mnrksi,   tha  koy  to  the  Chicago  system,    of  the  bank's    'depositors,    which    number  many    thousands,  must bo arranged  in  n  scientific  classification,   and    it  will require an expert to "do it.  GOOD  SAFEGUARD.  This new    system of identification,  whilo not an altog-other simple thing  for tho bank employes who must arrange and keep it, is for th'o depositor one of the surest safeguards. At  present,  when  a -man opens  an     account with a bank, he signs his name  in a book or upon a card,  and this  fotms not  only his means of identification,  but is  as well  the     bank',  only s-afeguar'd; .against  tho     forger.  With' the thumb mark gystom of identification,     the   depositor  will   leave  his thumb mark upon a card or     a  page of the depositor's ledger.        If  there is nny question as to his identity at any time, he appears at th'e  bank,  h'o has only to make a     now  thumb  mark,   which an expert     will  compare with the mark of identification..    If  the two  are identical    the  man  is identified;':    ���������     ii  ' i..     -HOW MABK IS MADE.  The method of securing th'o thumb  mark is simple;- ���������' The ;recoiving teller and tho paying tellers at the  bank are provided with a piece ol  tin, some printers' ink, and a roller.  The ink is thinly spread, upon the .  tin, the depositor places the ball of  his thumb:-upon this and rolls it  backward and forward, preswlng  heavily,:; until the ball of the thumb  is .thoroughly ��������� "inked.." , The depositor then presses the thumb firmly  upon tho ledger page opposite his  name, which he hap himself written.  The depositor is then:given a number  and this number, with th'o signature  and thumb mark, is classified. The  expert then 'examines the thumb  mark and decides to-which classification it belongs. If it i9 n "whorl"  or an "arch," it is,placed in that  classification. In this manner the  bank would 'lie enabled to tell what  depositor had signed a cheque if it  bore a thumb niark.v even if (the name  could not bo deciphered.

' A photographic system of identification is unreliable, for  a man may greatly alter his appearance in a few hours.

GREAT  SURGEON RETIRES.  Sir Frederick Treves Tells Why He  Gave Up His Work.  "I gavo it up because thero was  too much to do. Performing big  operations evory morning makes existence rather trying. I got tired of  my duties; they bored me to' death;  so after six and twenty years of  practice  I   retired."  This is the way in which Sir Frederick Troves, the eminent surgeon,  explains ln an interview ��������� appearing  in a London journal how ho camo to  practically give up his profession.  "Not that my labors were break,  ing me down," ho goes on to explain,  "Nothing would, I think, do that.  I havo no nervous system, not having had need of one, and I havo  never had to keep to my bod."  "I was invariahly downstairs at 5  o'clock. I .breakfasted at half-past  seven, and almost without exception,  there was an operation at nine.   ,  "Then, right up to ono o'clock,  there woro patients to see. After  that I wont out, and having lunched  in my carriage, devoted the afternoon to consultations. When did . I  get homo? At all hours. This, as I  havo said, was a sort of existence  of which anybody was liable to grow  tired."  One of Sir Frederick's personal  triumphs was mentioned by him. last  week at the meeting of tho Royal  Medical and Chirurgical Society.  "It is as'long ago as 1887," he  said, "that I ventured to suggest  that cases of recurrent appendicitis  should be treated by removal of the  appendix during the period of quiescence.  "My proposal was not very enthusiastically received at tho time, but  of late years I have no ground for  complaint on this head.  "The procedure is ono of the most  common of abdominal operations,  and certainly ono of the most satisfactory. It is attended with but  trifling risk and with but littlo distress to' the patient, while in the  vast majority of instances lt is followed by a complete and unconditional curo." "  .   ���������   A  MODERN MEDICINE.  UNITS COUNTJN BATTLE  SPEEDIER  VESSELS  POR  THE  BRITISH NAVY.  Lord     Brassey      Favors Torpedo-  boat  Destroyer  Class���������To  Watch Other Navies.  Lord Brassey, in the courso of a  lecturo to tho Institution of Civil  Engineers on naval shipbuilding, said  the latest official statistics showed  England held a commanding position  in numerical strength of its fleet, but  tho rapidity with which vessels became obsoleto mado it imporativo  thnt tho designs and principles of  construction of future vessels should  receive careful  attention.  Lord Drussey thought tliey should  carefully watch tho work in progress  for foreign navies, and ho instanced  four vessels of tho Vittorio Emmanuel typo now building for the Italiuu  navy. In tho growth of dimensions,  England has always led tho way, ho  said, and in the hnnds of hcr skilful  navy architects tho growing dimensions had given more than a proportionate gain in fighting efficiency,  but on tho other side various arguments could bc advanced that in  naval battles numbers must toll, and  if units wero less costly moro of  them could bc b'lllt.  DANGERS STILL PRESENT.  Increase of sizo gavo no immunity  from tho dangers of darkness, strand  ing, or collision. From ram or torpedo or submarine mines conning  towers could give no protection to  lho  commanders.  Lord Brassey wns of the opinion  that it should not be diflleult to design, a high speed vessel of the torpedo-boat destroyer class, heavily  armored, armed with torpodo tubes,  and with ono heavy gun in thc bows.  Many of theso could bo built for the  cost of one battleship) and they  might do more than heavy ships to  decide the issue of a hard fought  day. Ho also suggested that somo  British battleship might with advantage bo similar to thoso now being  built for Italy and Germany with a  displacement of about 13,000 tons.  Without advocating a revolution in  Shipbuilding policy or desiring that  England had a single big ship less  on the navy list, he contended that  in the future shipbuilding somo vessels should be included of a type  suitable for narrow and shallow waters. ������  .    THE  SUBMARINE.  As to the submarine. Lord Brassey  thought it essentially a defensive  weapon. It was valuable for harbor  defence, but its ability to navigate  tho seas had to bo proved.  As to oruisers, he considered the  latest British examples, would well  bear comparison with those under  construction elsewhere. Two types  were necessary���������namely, the scouts  of the fleet, in which speed and coal  endurance wero essential qualities,  and cruisers for the protection of  commorce, in which fighting efficiency  must be combined with these qualities. Tho latter type must be largo.  ' With regard to scouting cruisers,  he pointed out that the war in tho  Far East had shown that ' cruisers  having no protection by vertical armor hardly could bo reckoned as  combatants.   ���������       -  HE MEANT EVERY  WORD HE SAID  EX - REEVE'S        RHEUMATISM  CURED BY DODD'S  KIDNEY  PILLS.

The Duchess of Edinburgh  I am told, showed remarkable cour-  _agre_ and_prosence_ of mind, her apart-  nients being in very" close proximity"  to the scene of tho catastrophe."  A mine had been fixed in tho basement under the room whero the Emperor was to dine. But the Cznr  wns Into, nnd had not arrived. While  he escaped scathless, eight soldiers of  tho guard wore killed and forty-five  wounded,  Ono can imagine thc undignified  plight of the Russian general as revealed by tho following extract:  "Rumors had been abroad for  months past (wrote Lord Duuerin) of  a conspiracy to blow up tho Palace,  which had been kept crammed  with soldiers ever sinco tho Emperor's return���������a strange method of  precaution against a gunpowder  plot; but, according to Lord Dufferin, the imbecility of the special  household police had been superhuman. The general commanding tho  Palace was in a lift when tho mine  blew up; tho mon working tho pulleys  fled,  and left him suspended midway  FOR NEARLY TWO HOURS,  while everyone was searching for  him; and 'his friends imagined that,  having been at tho bottom of tho  plot, he had withdrawn himself from  public observation.' Military reinforcements wero hurriedly summoned;  the soldiers dropped cartridges as  they ran through the streets, and  these wore exploded by the wheels of  passing carriages, increasing tho  panic and bewildering the police, who  pounced upon tho drosky of an unlucky English governess, and dragged her off to prison on the charge  of having fired a pistol."  Poor little English governess! It  i.s to be hoped the police got ovor  their   fright.

Wroto Lord DuiTerin  to a correspondent in regard to the  funeral   of  the   Czar,   whom     shortly  afterwards    tho Nihilists    after  succeeded in  blowing to pieces:  "I was all in favor of tho Princo  "(of Walo.n) coming, and of bringing  his wifo too.

The Liberals  of Centre1 Toronto refused to put ft candidate in the field at  the recent election  there, and as was  announced   at   the   time, Mr. 'Bristol,  Conservative was elected by acclamation.   This   was a fair  test of   public  feeling "with- reference to Sir AVilfrid  Laurier's action upon   the question of  Provincial Eights and his invasion of  the privileges   vouchsafed  provinces,  so far as education was alfeclod.    Tlien  came tin. election  in Mountain, Manitoba, which  had   been  Liberal for 20  years, usually   by  a majority of  over  200 and in the Dominion iu November  hist by 400.     Again   the Independent j  Liberals refused to become the bondslaves of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who had  refused to   enlarge   the boundaries of  Manitoba   aud   whose   spiritual head  liad demanded changes in school legislation.    The Conservative was elected  by about loO   majority, while, forced  to appoint a Minister of   Interior, the  Premier was   driven  to   choose   Mr.  Frank   Oliver,   who,   representing  a  constituency sixty   per cent "foreigners" (not the   Lord   Dundonald  class)  and those in favor of 'denominational  .schools.

To charge him witli being  recreant to his trust i.s unworthy of  any newspaper aspiring to even mediocre respectability.

The Vancouver   World  (aud tho information   appeals   to  be exclusively  confined to lhat newspaper) in a scam  line telegram, purporting to have been  sent   from  Winnipeg, announces tbat  the   Hon. Robert   Rogers, Minister 6f  Public Works, is intiigtiing to supersede his leader. Premier Jtoblin.    Kvi-  dently the  World has not consulted  those who ought to know the truth or  untruth of this allegation; Mr. Rogers  has   made   a  record   as a progressive  Manitoban:  he   neither   fears Liberal  newspapers   nor   Liberal touters, nnd  to charge him with comprising against  the head of the Government, without  the   shadow   of   foundation,  is proof  positive of the depths to which partisanship     frequently    prompts     its  votary   to descend.     Premier Roblin  has accomplished much  for Manitoba: |  he has changed the face of industrial  and financial affairs from a Provincial  stand   point:   in   short,   he   had   the  courage  of  his   convictions, and contributed   largely   to   the   marvellous  progress of Manitoba in recent years.  In this work he had the co-operation  of   Mr.     Rogers,   whose    activity   is  acknowledged and appreciated by his  When  Sir Wilfrid  Laurier refused  to interfere witli those in South Africa  who   favored   Chinese   work   in   tlie  mines, a universal   shout of  approval  went up from  those who believed in  Provincial    Rights.     By   no   means  would the  patriot   Laurier  ask those  who followed him   to   violate a great  Liberal principle.    Of course it is upon  record   that he   was   quite willing to  ask the Imperial Government to grant  home   rule   toj I i-el.-ind, hut it was a  horse of   another .color,* when ho was  put face to face, as an  Imperial Privy  Councillor, with   the   issue of   asking  t.he Canadian  House of   Commons to  express preference   for  white instead  of yellow labour.     And  so has it been  throughout, since in ISOli (he Premier  i'otn: .1 it incumbent upon him to stand  by   his   pledges.      Not   one   but wa.s  strangled, not   one   principle   but lias  been   violated,   hot   a   promise kept.  Tito Toronto News, a newspaper edited  by Mr. Willison, a gentleman who for  many years was the ciose friend of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier. does   not hesitate to  condemn   him   in unmeasured terms.  In   a   recent issue of   the News (9th  May) Mr. Willison writes :  "It cannot be thought strange if  tens of thousands nf Liberals are dazed  and astounded at the action of Sir  AVilfrid Laurier and the Liberal majority in parliament, by which sectarian schools are forever imposed  upon the. western Territories."  Again :  "They recognized in the prime minister a statesman whose whole lifo hnd  struggle for the maintenance of Provincial Hights is united in condemning  the betrayal nf the constitution. For  instance, the Toronto Globe, tho oldest and most uncompromising Liberal  newspaper in the Dominion speaks  out. plainly.    It says :  "It i.s high time a halt was called  and ibe Mi.mer it i.s done, uo matter  'what the iire.-i-niin, the better il. will  be. Already there are complaints of  the congestion of business at Ottawa.  Ilesides, as George lirnwn so often  declared, only dillleully nnd inextricable confusion eiiines from Federal  legislation iu mat I ers of Provincial  .iuii.-ilii'lion. And Ibis is of special  interest lo the Liberal parly. Liberals  are now - in lhe majority bulb in the  (.'onunous and in the Senate. The  principle nf Provincial Rights is at the  very heart of Canadian Liberalism,  lt rests lo a degree wilh the Liberal  party or will puss into the hands of  Borden and Whitney. In some of the  Provinces tho doctrine of Provincial  Rights may have less meaning and  less significant history than it basin  Ontario. Here it has been tho strength  and glory of Liberalism. Ontario  Liberals cannot all'ord to let it go."  The Ottawa Journal, an earnest  advocate of Provincial Rights and an  independent political newspaper referring to the vote on Provincial  autonomy points out tlie fate which  tlie Liberal party has invited by  forsaking oue after another the great  principles for which it once stood :  "Practically therefore, tho Liberal  party in parliament yesterday went  solidly for coercion. In 1S00, Liberal  opposition lo tliat idea in the case of  Manitoba* did more than any other  single cauie, except L-iurier's personal  strength in Quebec to win success and  power for that party. Tlte reversal of  principle is complete; and il. is the last  crowning desertion by lhe Liberal  leaders of all the policy of Iho party  prior to IS'JO, and of the promises upon  which power was attained. Tariif for  revenue; retrenchment of expenditure:  restriction of railway subsidies; abolition of land grants; provincial lights-  all have gone by tho board."  "Whut else could bo expected? Was  there a representative from British  Columbia who dared to open bis lips,  condemnatory of tiie treatment this  Province has received?

An interesting contribution to the  autonomy controversy, and the best  answer to Walter Scott's (M.P.

Madgo went down the stttirs on  Royce's arm, her heart lieu ting fust,  her face pale, Two footmen stood  at thc bottom of the blu irs like sentinels, and one of theni advanced to  the drawing-room door ami opened  It,   with   head   bent   respectfully.  They passed in, and for a moment  iladge saw nothing; a mist seemed  to swim before her eye.t, through  ���������rtiich the room in all its luxury and  ���������Jubdued grandeur cuine dimly.  Then she saw the countess, a tall,  upright figure in gray satin, with  jewels sparkling on her bosom and  ������n her lingers.  Beside her stood Seyinour in evening dress, with a barely suppressed  ���������neer of contempt on his thin lips;  but as his pale eyes wandered cover  Madge a momentary expression of  surprise and admiration shone iu  them.  The countess came forward and  held  out  her  hand.  "How do yo.'i do?" she said. She  did not kiss her or say that sho was  glad to see her; and to Madge , the  jeweled  hand   felt  like  ice.  "Bid you have a pleasant journey?   You are looking well."  "Uoyce said "yes." Seymour held  out his hand to Madge, and bowed,  over hers; then extending it to  Royce as if they had never had a  difference in their life; and Royce  thook  it  and  nodded.  "Won't you come near to tho fire,  Madge?" said Seymour with a  alight hesitation before her name, as  If he had half intended to call her  Mrs.   Landon.  Madge sank into the seat he drew  up for her. She had not spoken a  word as yet. The countess sat opposite her and looked at her. She  saw that she was more beautiful  than ever she, the countess, had  thought, tliat she was dressed in  good and modest taste, that the  ovening dress seemed to have grown  upon her; that no one could see her  without being struck by the loveliness of her face, tho grace of her  form; but all the while, as she looked: at her, she was saying:  "A gypsy, a gypsy; a common girl,  a vagabond!"  She could find no word to say to  her. She could not ask after  Madge's mother���������or father���������or any of  her relations. The mere thought of  them sent a shudder through the  countess and made her hot. And she  was her daughter-in-law, hcr son's  wifel .;���������*".  Royce and Seymour stood talking  together, in the forced and unnatural  manner in .which, men talk who,  though closely related, dislike and  distrust each other; liut Royce  glanced now- and again at the two  women, and his heart ached for his  beautiful Madge. He knew what she  was .suffering.  "1 suppose you have been traveling  a great deal?"  Madge looked up. and the countess  felt a spasm of unwilling admiration  stealing through her as the dark,  pure eyes with their timidly sad expression met  ones.  "So, madam," said Madge. "We  have not traveled much. We have  only  been   in   London."  Another silence. The countess noticed the "madam," and the clear  bell-like voice; but neither the tone  of respect nor the sweetness of tho  tone in which it was uttered softened  her  heart.  "Royce has coached her," she  thought  bitterly. v,  "London is very empty just now, I  suppo.se,"  she.said.  "Oh,     no,    it     is  quite full!      Tho  crowd   was  so  great   that  sometimes  Jack  and  I  could  scarcely  make  our  wav along the streets."  ".lack?"  ings; hut never until now did she  millers!tuul the vast dilTercnco between them and herself. And she  hnd married the son of ono of the  proudest and haughtiest of these  "gentry."  Her heart snak; sho longed for  Royce���������no longer Jack, alas!���������to  como near to her antl encourage her  wilh a word or a smile, or a pros-  sure of the hand. sense of loneliness fell ,upon her like a chilly cloud.  The vaulted ceiling with its pninte.l  llowers and birds seemed to bo crushing down upon her.  And then the door opened���������a figuro  in white stood for a moment t^t the  opening,  and glided toward her.  It was Irene, all in white, with a  palo orchid mauve in hcr golden  hair.  To Madge she appeared liko a vision, ethereal; her feet seemed scarcely to touch the ground; her loveliness was so spirit telle that, in her  state of confusion and bewilderment,  Mndge would not have beon surprised if she had seen the slim, graceful  figure float ceilingward. ^  Irene passed Koyce and Seymour  with a murmured "Royce!" and  made straight for Madgo.  Madge rose, as if compelled, nnd  her handsomo face flushed. She expected Irene to say, coldly, *'How-  do you do? Have you had a pleasant journey?" But Irene took hcr  hand and, bending forward, kissed  hen; not on the brow, but on the rod,  pure lips; not a cold kiss, which  means "I hate you," but a warm,  girlish tender kiss that went straight  to poor Madge's heart, and brought  tears to  her eyes.  "Oh, I am so sorry I am late!"  said Irene, seating herself beside  her, and still holding her hand.  "Hut I had a bad headache and  went to lie down, and I fell asleep,  and did not hear the bell. 1 am so  sorry! for I meant to go down to  the lodge and meet you. Will you  forgive me denr Madge?"  Madgo was speechless for a moment. The sweet voico rang in her  ears, echoed in her heart,'..filling her  with  gratitude  and love.  "I nm sorry your head ached," she  said in a low voice, tremulous with  the feelings Irene's tenderness had  called up.    "Are you  better  now?"  "Quite," said Irene with a smile,  but even .'as. she answered Madge  noticed that thc lovely face was palo  nntl looked worn, and that: there  were dark shadows under the eyes;  that the smile Was sad as well as  tender.  "Quite; I am used to headaches"���������  lately, she was going- to add. but  checked herself. "And havo you had  a good time? How well Royco  looks." She glanced at him; only  just glancted. "I have so much to  say to you������������������"  "Dinner is served, my lady."  Seymour came across the room to  the two girls and offered his arm to  Madge.  She did not know what he meant  for a moment, then she rose and put  her    hand     in his arm.      He smiled  but said  her  own   proudly  cold I covertly    at her hesitation  j courteously   enough:  "I hope you have a good appetite,  Madge. You should hnvo after your  long  Journey."  He led her into the dining-room,  and put her in a seat; and the sense  of bewilderment came rushing back  upon  her.  The room, with its oak panelling  and pictures, its old tapestry hangings, loomed richly in the subdued  light. Tbe table glittered with cut-  glass and silver-plate. In the centre,  and in shinning epergnes were choice  llowers, which shone like colored  gems against the white cloth, and  filled  the air  with  their  fragrance.  There were three footmen in rich  livery as well as the butler, and, to  Madgef-'thej���������alt^seeinerf^to���������be'look-  ing at her, watching for some mistake, some blunder on her port.  She looked down at hor plate;  noticed     that   there were two knives  "l���������i  ineaii iioycei"  "I did not know."  "It   is  the   name he  gave   me "  She stopped.  "l'rav call your husband what you j  please." said the countess with a! nnd forks, and three wine glasses at  line blending of courtesv and con-j the side, and her heart snnk. She  tempt, which passed over Madgo liie; knew thnt she must blunder, must do  a cold  wind.  Hut  her  eyes  drooped   meekly.  This!  was   ho.-   lirst   lesson,   und   she   would  not  forget it. I  "Hid   sou   like  London?"  asked   the!  countess, j  "I  thought     it    was  wonderful.

Hut  Ii  should     not   like  to   live  there;  it   is;  loo  big  and   too   noisy;  one  feels  as  if one  were  quite alone  tliere." ���������  "Vou  had   never been   to   London?";  "Xo,"   said     Madge.    "Our   people j   "   She  stopped   the  blood   rushed  to her face, the mom swain before  her. Tho countess drew herself up  an! turned away from her, palpably,  to the men.  "Is it not dinner time, Seymour?"  she said.  "Ves, madam." he replied, looking  at his watch: "but we are waiting  for  Irene, I  imagine."  "She had a headache and went to  He down," said the co'intess. Madge  remembered Irene, started slightly at  the sound of her name. She looked  around the room. She had not only  nover seen such a place, but had  never road of one. The vaulted ceil-  in:;, picked o"t with olive and gold;  the painted walls, the pictures, the  marble- statuettes, the great marble  and ormolu fireplace; the Venetian  mirrors and rich silk hangings, all  filled her with a sense of wonder  ���������which oppressed her.  Then she glanced nt the countess  ond stalled. She seemed to Madgo  to belong to a different species to  herself.

Royce sat opposite hi-r, and  Irene by her side. Seyntor pronounced n long grace with n snucijlied expression on his fnee, und in n kind  of  drawl,   and   dinner  commenced.  Madge watched Irene before she  vniitiit'ud to take up her spoon for  t.he soup, nnd when the footman  brought   round     the  hock snid.   "N'o.  asked herself if it could bo possiblo  that tho aristocratic gentleman in  evening drcsn, with tho footman behind his chair, could really be Jack,  the horse dealer of the gypsies; and  whether she could bo Madgo Lee, who  a week ago lived in a caravan and  woro a red shawl, with Mother Katie  and Lottie and Tony for companions?  Aud oven nt that moment the camp  rose before her, and her heart ached  with a wistful tenderness for them  all! Hid they miss hor? Had Tony  cried much?     Had he forgotten her?  .Meanwhile she listened to tho talk  going- on round her. It was as  slruiigu to her us the great house,  the magnificent rooms, tlio cut-  glass, the plate, the noiseless servants.  She heard .lack���������no, Royco���������asking  his mother about Lord and Lady  llalfarras, and Sir William and the  Duchess of Kingford; nnd she realized how widely she was separated  from all  these people.  Tho dinner proceeded, and, marvelous to relule, sho hatl made no great  blunder as yet; but presently the  foottnun put on tho desert service;  the plates wero of rare Sevres. To  "each person was placed a finger-  bowl of old Knglish cut-glass, as  rare and almost as precious as the  Sevres.  Now Madgo had declined all the  wines excepting a glass of claret,  and thinking that the water in the  finger-glasses was for drinking, was  about to take it in her hand, whon  Irene quickly, yet so softly,  said:  "You are admiring theso old glasses, dear? They are very, vcry old; I  think they came from Holyrood .fal-  ace; and it is just poSsiblo Mary,  Queen of Scots dipped hor fingers in  them as we do now," and she dipped  her fingers in the scented water, and  wiped them on her napkin.  "I did not know."  "Arc they not beautiful with the  bloom on them?" she said.  "I want to show you tho hothouses, and tlie conservatories. Are  you fond of flowers, Madgo? But  what a silly question. All women  lovo flowers. I cut nearly all these  myself. Mj'. Thomas, that's the head  gardener, was in a good humor this  morning.    Sometimes he  is  not,  and  then "   She   laughed.  She talked on, tho kind of talk,  which does not require anything  more than a monosyllables in response, and so, as it were, covered  and protected Madge in her shyness  and   ignorance,  Royco bent forward every now aud  then, and said a word or two, and  smiled "encouragingly and lovingly;  but the countess sat with averted  eyes, and Seyinour watched his new  sister-in-law with a.smile which barely Concealed a sneer;waiting an opportunity to embarrass and discomfort her.  Tie waited until thero was a pajiso  in the conversation and amid profound silence said, bending forward  with  a stiuve smile:  "Bo you take any interest in missionary  work���������er���������Madgo?"  Madge looked up with a start,  glanced at Royco almost appealingly,  and then 'looked* at Seymour timidly,  the color coming and going on her  beautiful  faco.  "Missionary work?" she repeated  vaguely.  Itoyco bit his lip and came to her  rescue. He saw that Seymour's intention was to humiliate Madge, and  mortify- him.  "So'. Why should she?" he said,  grimly,   almost  fiercely.  "Oh, why should she not? You  do her an injustice, I am sure, my  dear Royce. I was going to tell her  about, our mission at Timbuctoo.  Perhaps you have heard of it���������er���������  Madge?"  Irene could feel against her dress  Madge's hand trembling. There was  an intense silence, Royce's face  growing dark and angry as he saw  Madge's  distress.  for a moment she was speechless,  then she lifted her glorious eyes and  poured their' light upon her tormentor.  "Timbuctoo?" she said in a low  voice which had thrilled Irene when  she first heard it. "Timbuctoo is a  town in Central Africa, close to the  border of the Desert of Sahara,]  about eight miles north of the;  Niger." j  She had learned it from one of the:  books   she   had   treasured   up   in   her !  j^.'aravanr-=ar,d-=-with���������th&t=.wonde������fuLi  memory     which    accompanies   perfect  health   repeated   the   paragraph   word  for word.

And this "common g.vpfty girl" hnd  turned his weapon of sarcasm upon  him and beaten him!

Tho practice of spraying trees and  shrubs when tliey aro dormant is  becoming widespread. It has been  recognized that in this way many  of the spores of fungi are killed be-  futv() they can do harm by reproducing themselves iu the fruit, loav'es or  tho tree. Just what ufllcacy there is  in winter spraying we do not yet  know, but it is believed that mucli  good results. Winter spruying is inclusive of that done at any time beforo the buds open, ovon lato in  March, while the buds aro swelling.  Kven many people that are in doubt  about tho necessity of spraying trees  when dormant, yet follow the practice, to bc on the safe side. lt is  certain that if, a.s some have supposed, tho spores of thc npplo scab  fungus lives over Jn tho bark of the  tree or on rubbish on the ground,  spraying  will do good.  Thc man that is prepared to spray  lato iu the Winter is in a position to  bo prompt with tho same work later;  and it is promptness that is necessary. Some men do not spray till  a few duys after thoy should have  completed the work, and the pests  for which they sprayed get the upper  hand and keep it. Tho first spraying of the applo should be while the  treo is dormant. This is likely to  check the apple scab. If this spraying is omitted, the first one should  bo given -when the leaf buds are  open and before the flower buds expand. This spraying should be with  Bordeaux mixture for the scab. If  the bud worm has been prevalent in  the neighborhood, spray with Paris  green as soon as the leaf tips appear in the buds. This treatment  will also check the case-bearer. If  the applo trees aro affected by San  Jose scale, then spray with whalo  oil soap���������two pounds to a gallon of  water, when trees are dormant), or  use crude petroleum at the "rate of  25'per cent, or kerosene in the proportion of oue to five in water.

By all Grocers  DOES POULTRY PAYV  Poultry may be successfully raised  on land that is both thin and hilly.  The rental for such land is low. If  the poultry-wan has a fifty-acre plot  of which half is fertile, 25 acres may  bo devoted to breeding yards and the  balance to the raising of grain with  which to feed the flocks.  With a ftO-acrc farm, one-half devoted to poultry culture and the  other to tljo raising of grain, a man  can, with one hired assistant, cfcar  more money in a year than He could  had he worked a section of land for  all it was worth'. He can grow  fowls���������chickens, turkeys, ducks and  geese���������both for eggs and meat and  with our rapidly 'growing jiopulation  and tlie consequent increasing demand, tliere will never be a time  when a young chit ken will beg for a  place in the market at from. 25 to  30iCents. On the contrary, the market will'bog for the fowls at prices  from 25 to  50 per cent,  higher.  Poultry is as sure a crop as any  that may be grown on tho farm.  True, you may have cholera or some  other troublesome disease, and your  flock may be greatly reduced, but  are not droughts and cyclones likely  to play equally as much havoc with  growing crops?

FEEDING ON THK FARM.  There is no bolter way of keeping  land fertile than by feeding all crops  upon it, because manure is fertility  pretty quickly available, and wo aro  less dependent upon the natural  strength of the soil. Moro than  this, the incorporation of manure  with the soil furnishes both physical  and chemical conditions that emiblo  the plant to uso soirne of the original soil elements; but wo have a class  of writers who assume that this is  the only rational way, regardless of  the fact tliat the Creator must have  intended that people eat something  besides meat and ..milk* and that  grains, vegetables and fruits must  be taken away from the farms producing them. If that be true it is  a narrow view that is taken by anyone urging all to feed their farm-  products for the sake of the land's  fertility. Other ways of maintaining it are open to us. Half of the  fertility of th'o crops now fed on the  farm fails to get hacfT to the land  through the manure on account of  careless methods. . This is woeful  waste, because the plant-food in it  is so readily available; but it is mentioned to show that many a stockman is far more dependent upon the  natural strength of his, land for  plant-food than another may wholly  bo by keeping his soil in good physical condition thiough" sods and  fertilizing crops without any feeding  upon the farm. The method is unsafe in careless hands, and a good  supply of manure is the best, key for  unlocking additional soil fertility;  but the chief need of farmers to-day  is to recognize the importance of  good physical condition of the soil  and to regard it rather than the  amount '���������;of plant-food thoy may be  putting into the ground or taking  out of it.  BOYS  ON THE FAIIM.  Lois of boys are driven from the  farm by the treatment thoy receive  there. You cannot work a boy from  ten to fourteen hours a day, begrudging him a day oil and depriving him of an opportunity to mako  a little money, and have a little fun  on His own account, and then expect  that he is going to stay on tho  farm. Boys are not. built that way.  But if you treat them right, encourage their originality and foster their  development and the doing of things  for themselves, the average, boy .is  level-headed enough to realize the advantages '.offered by rural life. Some  fathers make the mistake of trying  to drive boys instcad of working  with thenr, or fail to recognize the  rapidity with which a bright boy  gains knowledge and experience between 12 and 20. and how quickly  he mny know , moro or have bettor  judgment in'some matters than his  father.

A Tragedy of the I.ake Athabasca-  District Told By the Mounted Police.  TKe Mounted Police report, recently issued at Ottawa, contains a tragic "Babes in tho Wood" story. It  gives lhe details of the cold-blooded  abandonment in the wilds of the  northwest, near Lake Athabasca, of  two young Indian children, who, deserted nnd unprotected, woro eaten  alive b.v wolves. A young Indian  girl of fifteen, also abandoned, narrowly escaped deatli from starvation. Th������ story, taken from th'o  diary of Sergeant Field, in command  of the police detachment at Fort  Chipweyan, is as follows:���������"A half- :  breed arrived Koro from Fond-du-  Lac, on Lako Athabasca, and reported tliat an Indian, Paul Izo Ante,  living at, Black Luke, near Fond-du-  Lac, had deserted his adopted children in tho bush somo time during  last September. The particulars of  tho case nre:���������This Indian, Paul Izo  Azie, was camped on an island in  Black .Lake, whero he intended fishing  and hunting during tho fall and winter.    One duy h'o sighted  FOUR OR FIVE CANOES,  with a number of mien on board,  coming towards his camp. He firod  two shots in the air, as is customary  amongst Indians,' as a sign of friendliness. They did not reply or take  any notico of his shooting, but paoV  dled off in - another direction and  landed on the main sJiore of tho  lako. This man, being -Very superstitious, as most Indians are, concluded tliat these were bad people,  and intended killing him and all his  family. Ho boenmo frighitened, so h'o  got his wife, sister and thc two children and himself into his canoe and  paddled aslioro, leaving his camping outfit and all his belongings behind him. When hc landed on shore  he started off on foot for Fond-du-  Lac, followed by his wife and sister,  leaving the two littlo children behind without food or protection, one  a little boy and the other a little  girl, aged two and three years respectively. It being an eight days>'  trip, or about 130, or 140 miles,  from his camp to F6nd-du-Lac, his  sister, a young girl about fifteen  years old. got fatigued after tho first  or second day's travel: He left her  behind also on tlio road, without  food or protection. This poor girl  wandered about tho woods: for several days in a dreadful state of.starva-  tion, until.v she was .picked "up by  some lndinns that were camped in  th'at direction. She told them her  story, how hor brother had deserted  tliose  TWO LITTLE CHDTLDREN  on the lake shore. Some of these Indians 'started back' to search for the  children. When they got there they  found the camp just as the Indian  had left it. nothing taken or stolen.  Thoy . tracked the little children  along the shore, and where they went  up into the buslf. Thoy followed  their tracks up into.the bush, fired  twoi. or 'threo shots and called out as ���������  loud as they could, but got no reply. Tlioy then went on a little  farther, and there they.found a little dress all blood-stained and torn,  and wolf tracks all around where the  littlo girl had evidently been eaten  by wolves. They could find no trace  or sign of the other child anywhere.  There is no doubt -that the little  boy has been devoured also." The  report adds that-the Indian guilty of  the desertion was arrested subsequently, tried and sentenced to two  years' imprisonment. The crime occurred In 1903, in a wilderness remote from. "civilisation, which accounts for th'o delay in the details-  becoming known and the bringing of  the rascally Indian to justice.   4 '  SENTENCE SERMONS.

Thore is no domestic remedy that  so promptly cuts short congestion of  tho lungs, soro throat or rheumatism  as will hot water when applied  promptly and thoroughly.  WHAT    TO    "DO  IN- CONTAGIOUS  DISEASES.  Diphtheria, scarlet fever and measles are the most common contagious  diseases, and the ones most dreaded  in tho family, though' it' is really  best- fer children to have measles  whilo young. If properly cared for  they will suffer no ill effects, unless  in rare cases whero there" is somo  constitutional weakness. It is needless to say that every precaution  should bc taken against diphtheria  and scarlet fever. A noted physician  gives it as his opinion that a solution of borax and salt in water used  to wash the rnoutii and tonsils will  sometimes prevent.children from contracting diphtheria in a house which  is infected-. In case a family is affected wjth either of-these dreaded  diseases, remove the patient,-' if possible, to a sunny, upper room where  there''is  an   open   fireplace, .and     do  :.not allow any children on "the" same  floor. The room should'be previously prepared by removing all furniture  nnd articles that can possibly be  spared, such as books, clothing, carpets, curtains, plants, birds, etc., remembering that once the patient has  entered the room, nothing can bo removed with safety until disinfected.  The fireplaces serve a double purpose;  fust, as a. means of ventilation,    and  ' second,'by keeping a small fire burning in it when tho "weather will permit, the pieces of soft muslin  or other materia! which sliould always be used instent'i' of towels and-  handkerchiefs, in wiping the secretions from thc mouth or nose, especially in diphtheria, can readily be  destroyed by fire. ��������� Rooks, . toys,  ���������crap-books, etc., should always be  destroyed at the termination of tho  sickness, as thoy will undoubtedly  carry contagion. A A few years ago,  in a largo city, several families became infected with scarlet fever  through same old toys bought at a  rummage sale.  VALUE OF GLYCERINE.  Nothing is better for chapped hands  than a mixture of glycerine and  olive oil in equal proportions. The  softness of the oil takes away the  smarting property of the glycerine.  To mako glycerine jelly equal to that  sold, and quito pure, dissolve a ono  ounce pucket of table gelatine iu a  little water; then whisk it into a  pint of glycerine. It can be colored  with cochineal. Pour into spots. If  too   stiif  add  more  glycerine. An  ounce packet of gelatine stirred into  four ounces of glycerine after boing  softened with water will cause thc  gelatine to set like stiff glue. This,  cut into squares, is excellent lo uso  in throat troubles. A tin of con-  densed milk, four ounces of glycerine,  two ounces of honey and a half  pound of sugar mako a honey-scotch  nice to take, and very nutritious. If  a* laxative is required, two teaspoonfuls of glycerine swallowed warm  nt intervals of an hour are what is  needed. As a cure'for indigestion a  teaspoonful of glycerine after mea'.s  is a perfect euro. For pimples, flowers of sulphur mixed witli glycerine  is a splendid remedy. For earache,  a few drops of warm glycerine poured into the ear soothes nnd heals,  nnd "equal-part's' of belladonna and  glycerine mixed and rubbed round the  ear will soothe the pain if severe.  oooooooooooooooooofeooo  YOUNG |  FOLKS   ������  *<>000000<X>000<K><XK>Oi><>0  A VISITING RAINBOW.  Nnp-tinie was .over iri tho "gotting-  wcll" room of tho accident ward of  tho children's hospital. After nap-  timo came story-time, and Nurse Cil-  L-ert, who had charge of thc room,  could tell tho most charming stories  ���������stories that made tho little children forget they wore lying in a lied  and could not run about, jump and  play. It was the best hour of all.  Tho children took turns choosing  what tho story should be about. Today it was little Mario Albc'rti's turn  to choose. It was a dull; gray afternoon. Outside tho snow was falling, and the wind was scooping it  up and tossing it against the windows, and heaping it in drifts in the  stieets. Marie had come from Italy,  where the days are long and sunny,  and she did not like the cold and the  snow. Slio thought often of t.he  green fields filled with flowers, where  sho used to play, and longed to go  back to  them.  "Wliat shall the story be about?"  said Nurse Gilbert.  Mario lookod at the storm outside;  then she lookod nt Nurse Gilbert,  who wus busy sewing bright-colored  ribbons together to make a bag.  . "Oh.' oh!" she said. "Tell us a  story of a rainbow, a bright, beautiful rainbow; such as spreads itself  after a rain over my hills of Fie-  sole."  So Nurse Gilbert told of the  strange adventures ,of a little boy  and girl who went out to search" for  thc pot of gold which fairy stories  say may be found at the end of a  rainbow.  Whilo Nurse Gilbert was telling the  story Marie forgot about the snow  nnd the cold, but when it" was finished she sighed and said, "Oh, how I  wish I could sco again a beautiful  rainbow!"  Tho next day, when nap-time was  ovcr, tho sun was looking in at the  windows, ns if to seo how thc children worn getting on since his last  visit.  ��������� But what did Marie Alberti see on  thc wall, over her bed? She looked  and looked. Surely it was a piece  of a rainbow.  ...  All the children wanted to know  where the rainbow' came from, nnd  Nurse Gilbert went to ono of the  windows, and took from the ledge a  piece of glass. ~"  It! was cut in diamonds and squares  and when she moved it to and fro  in the sunshine tne children saw  "pieces of rainbows dancing about the  room.  "This ball of cut glass is what  makes the rainbows," she said. "It  used to make rainbows for me when  I was a littlo girl. Now it may  inake  rainbows  for you."  Each day tho glass set in tho window, and when, thc sun shone the  rainbows camo on the wall and  travelled slowly round the room, and  the glass stood in such a way that  the rainbow began at Marie's bed  and travelled down the room to little Betty Frazer.  One day, when Marie had been  watching ' the rainbow for a long  time,  she.said to  Nurse Gilbert:  "Do you think. Nurse Gilbert, that  the children in the other room would  like to see the rainbow?"  "Why. ��������� to  be     sure,"   said     Nurse  Gilbert.

'The  minister's cat' is just- the name of  it, and it doesn't mean any special  cat in the world.' First, everybody  tries to think of something to say  about it that begins with 'a,' then  'b,' 'c,' 'd,' and so on. It's great  fun. It just happened that all tho  T things were 'impolite,' sweetheart,  but nobody meant your cat. Don't  you sec?"  Sylvia saw plainly, and all her  troubles vanisned in a flash. .. The  lump disappeared and she began to  laugh. She slipped her hand into  the big, kind one, and trotted happily back to the shouting children.  One voice rose above all the rest,  and what do you suppose it was  saying"' ~*  "The minister's cat is a flrst-ratc  cat!"  and  'Let  it  go  visiting  the  others,  see if they like it!"  They liked it so well that what do  you think Nurso Gilbert did? Why,  the very next timo she-went shopping  shn bought a glass rainbow-maker  for each of tho rooms.  HOT WATER AS A REMEDY.

An Electric Typewriter Automatically Writes Message.  During thc past year no fewer than  four new systems of printing by telegraphy have been introduced to a  wondering public, but it would seem  almost as though the palm for mechanical ingenuity must be awardod  to the Murray Automatic Page'Frint-  ing Telegraph shown in the rooms  of the Institution, of Civil Engineers,  says tho London Nows of recent  date.  To adequately appreciate the  claims of the now invention one has  to remember that the present method  of "sending" a long message, a press  telegram," for instance, is by means  of the Wheatstone instrument. This  necessitates the punching by hand of  a series of holes on a paper ribbon  or tape. These, on being passed  through the transmitter, produce a  scries of electrical pulsations which  in turn are recorded on a paper ribbon at the receiving station by  means of the Mcjh^ code. This -record has, to cobQHctc the process,  to be reduced to writing by tho operator.  The Murray system is briefly this  ���������In the place of the manual labor  involved in the punching necessary  under the old system a species of  typewriter makes the perforations in  the tape at the "sending" station.  The tape is passed through a transmitter much in the same way by the  Wheatstone method, but here the  similarity ends. Instead of the record at" the receiving end of the wire  being in the Morse code it is simply  thc perforations that are reproduced,  and these being passed into a little  mechanical arrangement attached to  an ordinary Darlock typewriter, the  machine immediately typewrites the  whole-telegram, just as. if sx human  being was operating the keys.

How    Western Ideas Were Adopted Into Japan's National  Life.  Foreigners too often fall into tho  error of believing that the civilization of Japan began with tho opening of the country to tho influences  of western ideas and institutions,  writes Count O'Kuma in tho North  American Review. In other words,  thoy imagine that Japan is only  somo forty years old, and that tho  progress sho hns mado during that  time had no earlier foundations. Considered in this light thoy imagine,  not unnaturally, thnt tho process has  been far too rapid to bo permanent.  I think, however, that they are in  tho wrong, because the real Japanese  civilization began sonic fifteen hundred years ago. Thus tho opening ot  the country "found tho Japanese in a  state of mind which had already been  civilized into readiness for tho western ideas. Fifteen hundred years before, the entry into Japan of tho elements of the civilizations of India  and China had begun. Everything  that Japan absorbed from these civilizations, howevor, became essentially Japanese. Buddhism came]  ��������� from India to Japan and was influenced there by Shintoism, the Japanese religion, and it thus became a  religion totally different in detail  from the Indian religion. . Tho Chinese literature,, on being! introduced  into Japan, Aecame tingedi as it  were, with ihe personality of. the  Japanese people, that has made it  typically* Japanese and no longer  Chinese. It was the same in the case  of the fino arts, which wero introduced into Japan from China and  Korea. Thus the mind of Japan was  developed and made ready to take  advantage of the system and rule of  the west. It was the lack of system in its civilization which constituted tho real backwardness of Japan  before the opening of tho country.  It is thus apparent that Japan is  not a young country in civilization  as many suppose; and, tbat being  the case, her rapid growth in recent  years ought not to cause uneasiness  and tho impression of instability.

Formerly, the import duties  o/veraged 6 per cent., and now they  "average 8 per cent., but those havo  boen simply for Government revonuo  and arc without any protective intention. It is good to see how Japan's trade has developed under a  free-trado system. From $00,000,-  000, the annual trade returns havo  reached 5200,000,000, and, at tho  past rate of increase, in 50 yeurs  Japan may hopo to have trade returns equal to  Germany.

The Japanese people discovered  that it was hopeless to try and expel the foreigner by force. They,  therefore, submitted to the inevitable, and began to seek out all that  was best in the western civilization  that was thus thrust upon theni,  realizing clearly that only by competing with the foreigners on their  own ground could the Japanese hope  to cope with them.        ->  The army system of the foreigners  was tho first thing that they realized to be superior to their own, and  soon tho .spears, and'swords- gave  place to rifles and guns. In navigation, also, great strides were made,  and the Japanese sailors strove hard  to make themselves able - and competent as navigators:' In thc field of  medicine, also,, much interest was  evinced in western ideas,; and' the  Japanese, realizing the superiority of  these ideas to their own, introduced  much of the modern science of medicine at anj'' early dale. At that  time there wore two governing heads  in the country, tho hereditary chiefs  of the feudal body called the shogun  and the emperor. It was determined  to bring forth into supreme powor  the emperor, and thc shogunate and  the feudal system was overthrown.  The determination to excel all other  nations was declared in one of the  earliest rescripts  of  tho omporor.  RELIGIOUS  LIBERTY.

THEIR OWN CAPITAL.  Under the feudal system ��������� Japan  was not a poor country, it has labored under a considerable disadvantage with regard to its recent development. In America and in Russia, for example, much foreign capital has been used to develop the  country; whereas in Japan except for  the small sum of $70,000,000, raised in London, nothing but Japanese  capital has been usod. This has necessarily. made the development, of  tho country and the subsequent necessary new enterprises fall rather heavily upon the Japanese peoplo. Foreign capital is much needed in Japan  especially with a view to '" the development of the railways. It will  be. necessary to.change the laws relating to foreign ownership of land  before much capital can bn attracted  from outside.

This door gives access to a vaulted  chamber known as tho Chapel of tho  Pyx, the walls of which wero standing, as they stand to-day, before  ever the Norman Conqueror landed  on the shore of Sussex. This chamber was onco the Treasury of England, to which wore brought "the  most cherished possessions of the  Stato." Tho regalia of the Scottish Kings and the Holy Cross of  Holyi'ood were deposited hero; for  many a year it served as a mint for  coining silver and gold; it was, centuries ago, tho scene of a daring  robbery, when treasure valued at  $000,000 (equal to ten millions of  our money) was taken from it; and  to-day it contains, in addition to a  stone-altar, some old chests, one of  which is safcl to have held the  jewels  of  Norman  Kings.  Not far away is a passage leading  to the Little Cloister, the arched  walls of which wero built under the  eyes  of  EDWARD THE CONFESSOR  nearly eight and a half centuries  ago, and which has echoed to the  footfall of the first William and his  mailed attendants. Hidden from  view under tho pavement are the  bases of thc original columns of the  Abbey, which have stood since before the Conquest; ond adjoining the  Little Cloister is a garden, shut off  by high walls from tho outside  world, in which monks meditated and  walked and prayed eight centuries  ago.  At the south-cast corner of the  Little Cloister are the remains of  St. Catharine's Chapel, which was  probably built within living memory  of the Conquest. The beautiful doorway which once gave access to it  now serves as the entrance to one of  the official residences; and in its  walls are still to be seen traces of  thc high altar and a fireplace. Not  far from this interesting relic of ancient days is a' square grey tower  which once served the' grim purposo  of a monastic prison, and has also  been the repository of the Royal  jewels (for many years it wns known  as thc.."King's Jewel House") ' and  of Acts of Parliament. After all  these centuries of existence it still  has its.uses, for in it aro kept the  ���������standards of-weights and measures.-  Few who have explored the Abbey  have been privileged to inspect the  Chapter Library, with its treasures  of books and manuscripts many centuries old; or perhaps know that  under tho passage leading to the  Chapter House lies the dust of the  first Abbot of Westminster, who had  his clay when the Confessor was  King  of" England.  TIIE CHAPTER HOUSE,  which is open to the public, has, of  course, centuries of interesting memories. It was originally the chamber  where tho Abbet and monks used to  transact their monastic business; for  many generations the Commons sat  and legislated here before moving to  the Chapel of St. Stephen in Westminister Palace; and in later years it  was used as a storehouse for the  public records, including the original  Domesday Book. Beneath the Chapter House is a crypt, tho entrance to  which is kept jealously locked, and  which seems to havo served the purpose of a strong-room to the Plan-  tagenet Kings; nnd not far from the  Chapter House is St. Faith's Chapel,  at oho tinie the vestry of the Abbey, and in which the ancient and  priceless altar of the Abbey is kept.  ^)f peculiar interest is the Jerusa-  ]cm~Chamberr"w-hich- was���������bu il t��������� m ore  than 500 years ago, and was probably at one time the Abbot's withdraw! ng-room. It was in this chamber that Henry IV. died, in curious  fulfilment of a prophecy that he  should die  in   Jerusalem:���������  MOST WONDERFUL WATGH  SECRET SEVEN YEARS WERE SPENT  IN ITS CONSTRUCTION.  Made By a Frenchman  and     Con*  tains Upwards of One Thousand Pieces.  All wonder clocks or watches 04  record have been eclipsed by m  French chronological creation, whiott  was recently shipped back to Paris  from the  World's  Fair.  This is the watch of L. Leroy &  Co. of Paris, which Is a whole observatory in small compass and has  valid claims to the designation of  the most remarkable watch in the  world.  During the exposition it was on  exhibition at the display of the  French firm of all watchmakers and  others  who  beheld  it.  Seven years were spent in its construction. It was made in celebra->  tion of the 120th anniversary of the  house of Leroy, whose founder made  watches for the ill-fated Louis  XVI. and the dames nnd gallants of  his  gay court.  The watch was sold recently for  ?-l,00'J. This is said to have been  but littlo more than its cost, as the  decoration of the case alone cost  $1,000.   The watch is  A POCKET ENCYCLOPAEDIA  of useful and necessary information  from its case to its dials. The 24  accessories which it possesses make  it the most complicated watch ever  built.  ItJ sounds the hours both day and  night, tells the day of the week,  month and year, the positions of tho  heavenly bodies as they pass on  their appointed journeys in the universe, the date of the eclipses, tho  rising and setting of the sun, the  seasons of the moon, the time of  .all the great towns of the world, tho  state of the weather, and so forth.  In addition it chows the three heavens as seen from Paris, Lisbon and  Rio Janeiro, with their gold stars  of  Ave  different  sizes.  The watch includes 975 pieces and  was made at Bescancon, France. The  decorations on the case of this wonderful watch arc finishing touches to  the chronological marvel and were  executed at Paris by Burdin, according  to  the designs  of Manini.  A CATALOGUE  of the mechanical accesories included  in this wonder watch is as follows:  Days of the week, of the month, perpetual calendar of thc months, dates  for 100 years, moon, seasons, sun-  time chronograph, minutes chronograph, hours chronograph, winding  hand, full striking and silence, minute repeater on threo gongs, boreal  sky with sidereal time and stars,  austral sky, local time of 125 towns,  sunrise, sunset, thermometer, hygrometer, barometer, mountain bar-  imeter for 5,000 meters, regulating  system, compass, and the twelve  zodiac signs on the case.  A grand prize and two gold medals  were awarded the firm exhibiting  this wonderful watch at the World's  Fair. ���������  Since the establishment of the firm  royalties of all countries have beeu  its patrons, and many masterpieces  have been executed for the crown  heads. Among tho majesties wha  have boen customers of the French'  watchmakers are Queen Victoria,  King Edward VIT, the grand dukes  of Russia, the kings of Greece and  Belgium, the Sultan of Turkey, Menelik the Negus of Abyssinia and the  King of Spain.   ��������� :   HOW MEN CHOOSE WIVES.  The    Views      of     Professor     Karl  Pearson.  New theories, of unconscious selection on the part of man and wife���������  like mating with' like���������as opposed to  Darwin's idea that men and women  depend upon th'eir perceptive and intellectual faculties in choosing each  other, were propounded by Professor  Karl Pearson, of University College,  London, recently at the Royal Institution,  says the London  Mail.  He maintained that man has an  unconscious tendency to select a wife  of his own height, with eyes of his  own color, a proportionate span from  forefinger to forefinger, a forearm  corresponding to his own, and a constitution  of like physical  vigor.  ���������These���������theories���������hWexpounded^by   means of tables and diagrams.  Among every thousand men the fol-  or o'" the eyes is divided as follows:  It  hnth  been  prophesied  me  many  n  year  T shall  not die but in .lorusulem;  Wliich  vainly  1   supposed   the     Holy  Land.

During a rccont snowstorm a policeman found William Nuttall, of  Accrington, England, at nearly midnight asleep in a field. At the Accrington Police-court the Chief Constable stated that Nuttall was a  most  extraordinary  character. He  could sleep standing and even while  walking, but preferred the middle  of an open field for his slumbers,  caring nothing for rain or .snow. The  last time he was before tho Court  h-; fell asleep in tho dock.  There is now under construction  across the St. Lawrence, at Quebec,  a cantilever bridge which, when completed, will ('ontaiti the longest span  of any bridge yet erected, not even  excluding "the great cantilevers bf  the Forth Bridge in Scotland. The  structure consists of two approach  spans of 210 feet each, two- shore  arms; each 000 feet in length, and a  great central span, 1,800 feet in  length.  Blue :   ."0'1  Croon   '-Hii  Hazel      127.  Brown        '���������'1  The eyes ot women are generally  darker, only 2S0 of them in every  thoi-sand having blue ones. If llioso  blue-eyod people married nt random,  the result would bo that thoy would  annte at the rate of 101 per thou-  and; but he"had discovered that tho  actual number of marriages \ier thousand of blue-eyed persons was.- 140,  or 30 above the random average,  thus proving that the blue-eyed man  and blue-eyed woman are unconsciously attracted towards one 'another.  Ir. thc same way, men with greenish grey or hazel eyes tend to. marry  wcimen with eyes of like color.  The average height of a man lie  gave as. from B7 inches to 68 inches,  that of a woman as 62J .inches,-and  hc contended that the average tall  man has a tail wife, and the average  short man a short wife.  "One could hardly imagine a man  choosinc a wife by measuring h'er  from forefinger to forefinger," said  the professor: yet his diagrams 'demonstrated th'at as the span of on������  increased so did that of the other.  A like result was produced in tho  measurement of thousands of fore-  aims. hi������? figures showing that "there  was a distinct tendency on the part'  of men with long forearms to unarry  wives with proportionately long forearms.
